Tuesday evening: A. F. Cutter and
Mrs. Smedley, of New York. Mrs.
Cutter's sister, who is the guest of
Hock Island and Davenport friends,

dent on Locust street, Davenport.
The street there is very uneven, hav

construction of the fewer, and not
having yet been settled into shape.
In passing over this rough ground
one of the front wheels of the buggy
suddenly Jeft it, the axle being bro
ken. Mrs. Smedley was thrown out.
Mr. Cutter clung to the lines and did
his best not to give up the ship, but af
ter skating over the ground in a per
ilous predicament for a full block, lie
let go and rolled to the ground, for
tunately escaping entanglement in
the wheel. The horse took the dis
abled buggy home, and gave the
family there a sad fright." starting
them at once in quest of the injured.
Mr. Cutter secured aid and Mrs.
Smedley was taken home, arriving
there three-quarters of an hour be
fore the relief party appeared. Mrs.
Smedley s shoulder was dislocated
and the tip of the shoulder bone w as
broken. She is restingin acondition
that promises speedy recovery. She
and her husband a'nd the Cutters,
with other relatives, expected' to
start for the fair yesterday. That
visit is indefinitely deferred."
Last evening about OrlV) L. S. Mo

ened at a street ear and started to
run. Mr. MeCabe was thrown out.
and his ankle severely sprained. Mr.
Beck escaping unhurt. The horse
continued a wild run up to Fortv
liflh street, where it was stopped.
Two of the wheels of the buijirv were
pulled off the buggy and the horse
was scratched a little about the legs.
Mr. MeCabe's injuries are such that
lie will not be aide to be about for
three or four days.
More Sharp Work.
For t '.vii or three days the Daven
port police have been quietly inves
tigating a case of horse thievery with
a number of variations that "shows

week a Singer sow ing machine agent
working 1 lie country around Bock
ford. 111., sold the rig furnished him
by the company in whose employ he
was. and stole another. This rig he
drove a few miles and then traded it
to a fanner for another. In the lat
ter he made his way to Davenport,
and here his speculation seems to
have ended in a blaze of glory,"' for

session of the stolen property. The
man who was swindled in the trade
had forthwith donned his war paint
and set out on the trail. He followed
his man to Davenport, and yesterday
the police oflieers found his horse and
buggy for him in the possession of
the Davenport party who had pur

Elias Tompkins, the man who was
picked up on Bock river, near Mo

Harrisburg. Mich., and got off the
train at Bock Island, supposing he

THE GREGG CASE.
.Judge Rrannun Hold That the Defendant
Munt Answer to the Iowa Statutes.
The case of Robert Gregg came up
for hearing yesterday before Judge
Brannan, of the district court in
Davenport, upon an effort of the de
fendant's attorneys to have the court
determine whether the defendant
could be convicted on the indictment
found against him in Iowa when he
had plead guilty in Illinois for the
offense of selling goods as a commis
sion merchant and neglecting or re
fusing to pay over the proceeds.
The proper time to make this de
fense was on the trial, but through
the courtesy of Fred Heinsz, county
attorney of Scott county, he was will
ing to have the court pass upon the
question upon certain records to be
offered. State's Attorney Searle, of
Bock Island, made a statement to the
court as to the facts of Uregg plead
ing guilty in Illinois, when he was
followed by Major Beardsley. who
argued upon law points. William
Jackson appeared for Fisher Bros.

The court expressed his disinclina
