IS ILL, Unable to Testify at the Cor- oners Inquest. HER STORY IS WANTED. William Alday Says Bribery Has Been Attempted. Offered $200 to Refuse to Tell What He Knows. " Mrs. Hans Osbar was unable to appear before the coroner1 jury this morning and tell what sue knows about the death of her late husband. Adam Alday. Her attorneys stated that she was ill. Her storv is wanted. and the inqnest was adjourned until next Wednesday afternoon at o clock, when witnesses, who can not be reached now, will ba on band, and when Mrs. Osbar will probably be able to testify, if she feels so disposed. wuiiam Alday, a son or Adam Alday, was called and sworn. Msj. M. ueardaiey, ooiectea to mm 01 ferine evidence, on acoount of the fact that he was interested in break, ing his father's will. "It appears to me tbat Mrs. Uibar is the proper person to oome here and testify, " said Mai. Beardsley. Mr. Haas replied tbat Mrs. Uabar desired to have the examination made, but had not summoned her sons to appear. Coroner Eckhart stated mat it was the desire to as certain all the facts in the case, and tbat ail witnesses snouid be exam ined. Then Will Alday told his story. "Father and mother quar reled occasionally." he said. Fath er complained of being paralyzed He drank soda water and whisk ad ministered by Klpp and mother. He lost about forty pounds daring his illness; bnt I believe he died a nat ural death. Physicians claimed he died of dropsy. I saw two medicine bottles. Before the funeral mother told me the will was in her favor acd that she wonld divide equally. Dr. Sloan was there a few moments before father died and gave him medicine. When he said that father was dead, he picked up the bottle from which he had previously given him medicine and pat it in his pocket. John uchs has approached me said Alday, Mo drop this and the will case and arson investi gation, offering my brother and 1200 each." Alday told how Ochs had called at his house two or three times and finally left a letter con taining the proposition. Will'&lday lives in Davenport and is 23 years of age. Dr. C. Bernhardi, of this city, tes tilied that he saw Adam Alday twice during the last six months of his illness, once to reduce a rupture, and about six days before his de mise. Alday was suffering from a general breaking down and a dropsi cal condition was apparent. Alday complained particularly -f his stom- acn, and Dr. Bernhardi prescribed a tonic. He did not tell Mrs. Alday to give her husband whisky, but" he probably told her to let him have some if he wanted it. Mrs. Kate Peterson, a daughter of Adam Alday, said she was at the bedside . of her father during the three days prior to his death, ' lie was in a comatoi-e condition the day he died," she said. "He seemed to feel pretty well the day before he died. He was able to sit up in bed, and in the evening ate some beef tea prepared by his wife. He did not vomit after partaking of it, although he could not retain some soda water which Joseph Kipp gave him a little while before. I also fed father sev eral times, giving him some biscuit and oatmeal. Father did not com plain of pain particularly, but said he felt weak. Mrs. Alday gave him whisky, to which . I objected, and suggested that we get a doctor. Bnt Mrs. Alday said that it would be of no use, and that whisky was the only thing that would keep him alive. Mrs. Alday also gave him some peppermint candy, which he ate. I never heard father eomplain of his whisky, two bottles of which were kept in the room by Mrs. Alday. She and her husband quarreled somV times. I had no reason to believe hat poison was administered to father." Joseph Klpp-a Story. Joseph Kipp, the old man, who says he was hired by Mrs. Osbar to fire the Alday homestead, was called before the jury. He said: "I at tended Mr. Alday during his last ill ness, and was with him the two nights preceding his death. I gave him whisky whenever he asked for it, and always took a drink myself. Together we drank about half a pint the day before Alday's death, when alday also ate a pear. The day he died Alday drank very little whisky. He did not die in convulsions; in fact, he died without a struggle; a gasping breath and all was over. Dr. Sloan was present when he died. Alday threw medicines procured for him out the window. He attributed the pain in his stomach to the rough treatment he received from the po lice about six months before his death. He was arrested for refusing to pay dog tax, and when the officers came for him he resisted, and while grasp ing the spokes of the wheel he was thrown into the wagon like a calf, DSBAH and he afterward felt as though he had been torn on the inside. I saw Undertaker E. B. Knox inject em balming flaid into the body through the nostrils. " Edward Alday, a son of the de ceased, said he was away at the time of his father's death and had no tea. timony to offer. P. H. Peterson said that Alday complained about a week before his death 01 pain in his stom ach; stating that he had not felt well since arrested by tne police. E. B. Knox, the undertaker who prepared Aid ay's body for burial, said he injected embalming fluid into the corpse's stomach because the case seemed to require such treat ment to keep the body in good con. dition until the funeral. Mr. Knox believed the fluid contained arsenic. although the exact ingredients are the secret of the manufacturer. H. F. Lage, engineer at the Moline waterworks, told the jury that he visited Alday frequenty during his illness. Alday complained of pains in his side and 01 a feeling 01 weak ness. Alday took his medicine and ate fruit. His food seemed to agree with him, as he did not vomit. Claus Alien, an old acquaintance of Alday, was called. He last saw Alday two months before he died. when be complained 01 reeling weak and nervous, and that he could not keep anything on his stomach. Al len at the time thought this due to excessive drink, as Alday for several veers bad been sober very seldom The witness also said that six months before Allay treated him to some liquor, which he kept in the base ment, and that it gave him a feeling 01 intoxication, and maae bim sick. Two Pbyalolaaa' Views. Drs. 6. E. Merryman and C. E. Whiteside gave exhaustive testi mony before the jury, both contend ing that arsenic need not necessarily appear in other organs than the liver and stomach of a person who died from slow arsenieal poison. Neither would give a definite opinion as to the cause of Adam Alday's death, but bath intimated that their belief was that he died from slow poisoning. "I do not think the embalming fluid would penetrate to the liver," said Dr. Merryman. "The latter is solid substance. The liver lies to the right of the stomach, and 'o portion wouia oe unoer tne stoma w a per son lying on tneir back, raw poison would be as apt to be in the spleen as in the liver, if from the .ombalm- lng naid. Arsenical poisoy- small doses produces irritation of the stomaoh, and poison would ,nd its way to the liver. Arsenical poison administered at intervals would be found in the liver and possibly in tne kidneys. The liver was in nor mal condition. Arsenical alow pois oning after death might be fonnd in the kidneys, spleen, etc., though the brain would be less apt to con tain 11. 11 the presence of arsenic was due to embalming fluid it would be found in other organs elso. The embalming 11 aid, administered as in dicated, could not reach the liver. From the knowledge I have I could not state positively the cause of death, from the fact that fluid was used. It Is my opinion that the presence of the proportion of arsenic loana in tne liver was greater Tiaa should have been found from the.e of the flaid. The greater proportibt should have been found in the stom ach. Death by arsenical poisoning is a gradual collapse of all organs. If arsenical poisoning after death it would simply affect the covering, and not penetrate the organ fully." SELTZER BOTTLE BREAKS.

It is the record of the hottest 24 hours ever known during the month of June at least since the establish ment of the weather bureau a quar ter of a century ago. The highest'previous record dur ing tne month 01 June was 97.5 on the(26ih, 1890. The highest the mer cury has ever been recorded officially nere was lvu.in July, 1893. The mercury rose steadily all day yestTd"T nd at 3 o'clock reached the highest point of the season 96. B ut it did not stop there. It climbed two notches and a half higher, and broke the record for the month at 98.4 at 4:S0. Here it hung until the sun went down, when it sank a little, but the air had became so Impregnated with the intense heat that no one realized that it was even a shade cooler, and during the even ing tne temperature moderattd so slowly that humanity could get 00 comfort ont of it. There was a hu midity in the atmosphere that was sweltering it was melting. It was insufferable to a degree seldott. be fore realized in Rock Island, lie weather was all there was to think about or care about. The gathering clouds at 8 o'clock awakened no ter ror. There were talks about the state of the weather being just the thing to aggravate a cyclone, bnt no body seemed to feel bad about that. Anything for a change, was the pop ular sentiment. The first big drops of rain that fell shortly before mid night were received with delight and treasured as prizes. People actually went from cover and subjected them, selves to nature's shower bath. Look out, you are getting wet," was the injunction given one debili tated individual who had found life a burden and who sought no um- urena sneiter. mT" - ' "That is what I want to do; this is a oiessing." was the reply. ft "But tney tar it is onlv the dead who are blessed by the rain falling Well, that hits me exactly," oame the suave response. "I died an hoar ago." But the rain did not add the cool ing comfort that was anticipated. It leu gently more or lesa throughout ue nignt, out it was 6:29 this morn ing when the downfall came that really did the business. That was a dandy. It brought hailstones aa big ns cnerries ana mua turtles. Then the air fel ore endurable.
