OSBAR IS ILL, Unable to Testify at the Cor oner's 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 coroner' jury this morning and tell what she knows about the death of her late husband. Adam Alday. Her attorneys stated that she wss ill. Her story is wanted. ana the inquest was adjourned until next Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, when witnesses, who can not be reached now, will ba on hand, and when Mrs. Osbar will probably be able to testify, if she feels so disposed. William Alday, a son of Adatn Alday, was called and sworn. Msj J. M. Beardaley, objected to him of feting evidence, on account of the fact that he was interested in break, in? his father's will. It appears to me that Mrs. Osbar is the proper person to oome here and testily," said Mai. Beardaley. Mr. Haas replied that Mrs. Osbar desired to have the examination made, but had not summoned her sons to appear. Coroner Eckhart stated that it was the desire to as. certain all the facis in the case, and that all witnesses should be exam ined. Then Will Alday told his story, "tamer and mother quar reled occasionally," he said. Fath er complained of bain? paralyzed, tie drank soda water and whisky ad ministered by Klpp and mother. He lost about forty pounds daring his illness; but I believe he died a nat ural death. Physicians olaimed he died of dropsy. I saw two medicine bottles. Before the funeral mother told me the will was in her favor and that she would divide equally Or. 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, 10 drop ibis 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 tainine the proposition. Will Aldav lives in Davenport and is 23 years of age. Dr. C. Bernhardi, of this city, tes- tmed 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 of his stom ach, 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 tone if he wanted it. Mrs. Kate fetcrson, 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 comatoce 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 partakiag 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. But 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 eom plain of his whisky, two bottles of which were kept in the room by Mrs. Alday. She and her husband quarreled some times. I had no reason to believe hat poison wat administered to father." Joseph Klpp's Story. Joseph Kipp, the old man, who says he waa hired by Mrs. Osbar to fire the Alday homestead, was called before the jury. He said: "I at tended Mr. Alday during hia last ill ness, and was with him the two nights preceding hia 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 waa thrown into the wagon like a calf,! and he afterward felt as though he had been torn on the inside. I saw Undertaker E. B. Knox inject em balming fluid into the body through tne nostms." Edward Alday, a son of the de- ceased, said he was away at the time of hia f ather'a death and had no tes timony to offer. P. H. Peterson said that Alday complained about a week before bis death of pain in his stom ach; stating that he had not felt well since arrested by the police. b. B. Knox, the undertaker who prepared Alday'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 of a feeling of weak ness. Alday took his medicine and ate fruit. His food seemed to agree wita him, as he did not vomit. Claus Allen, an old acquaintance of Alday, was called. He last saw Alday two months before he died, when he complained of feeling; weak and nervous, and that he could not keep anything on hia stomach. Al len at the time thought thia due to excessive drink, as Alday for several years had 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 of intoxication, and made him sick. Two Pnyalolaaa' View. Drs. 6. E. Merryman and C. E. Whitetide 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 both intimated that their belief was that he died from alow 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 cf the stomach, and no portion would be under the stomach of a per son lying on their back. The poison would be as apt to be in the spleen as in the liver, if from the embalm ing fluid. Arsenical poison small doses produces irritation of the stomaoh, and poison would find its way to the liver. Arsenical poison administered at intervals would be found in the liver and possibly in the kidneys. The liver was in nor mal condition. Arsenical alow pois oning alter oeatn might be tonnd in the kidneys, spleen, etc., though the brain would be less apt to con tain it. if the presence of arsenic was due to embalming fluid it would be found in other organs also. 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 or the proportion of arsenic found in the liver was greater than shonld have been found from the use of the flaid. The greater proportion 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 wouia simply affect the covering, and not penetrate the organ fully.' SELTZER BOTTLE BREAKS William DrMMi Ha Narrow Escape la HI Sample Room. A siphon seltzer bottle which he was handling blew up in the hands of William Dressen at his sample room on Second avenue last evening, and the pieces of thick glass thrown by the force of the explosion struck him on the right side of the face, in Hiding a number of jsgged cuts, one of which barely escaped the eye and another the temple, and some of the wounds laying the flesh open to the bone. Dr. Ludewig was summoned and sewed up the cuts, one of which required several stitches. Mr. Dres sen is able to be about today, but his injuries are very painful, and he is worthy of congratulation that he was not killed. The explosion was probably due to the excessive heat.

There was a hu. midity in the atmosphere that was sweltering it was melting. It was insufferable to a degree seldom be fore realized in Bock Island. The weather was all there waa 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 cyclene, but no. body seemed to feel bad aboat 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'a 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 brella shelter. "That is what I want to do; this it a blessing." was the reply. 'But they say it is only the dead who are blessed by the rain fall in e on them." 6 'Well, that hits me exactly," came the suave response. "I died an hoar ago." But the rain did not add the cool ing comfort that waa anticipated. It fell gently more or less throughout the night, but it was 5:29 this morn ing when the downfall came that really did the business. That was a dandy. It brought hailstones aa big as cherries and mud turtles. Then the air felt more endurable. While it had been becoming gradually milder through the night, it waa not until after this refreshing storm that actual comfort came; indeed there were people who up to that hour did not find repose during the night.
