Lung Penetrated. Mike Dempsey,
who is employed by the Davenport Gas
& Electric company, was seriously in
jured by an accident which occurred
in the Petersen block on Third and
Brady streets Wednesday evening. He
is at the hospital with his face and
hands badly burned, two broken ribs
on the left side and, worst of all, a per
forated lung which was penetrated by
one of the ribs. Mr. Dempsey is a gas
fitter and was sent to Room 10, "Peter
sen block, to repair a damaged pipe.
He mounted a high stepladder to work
about the ceiling, and, thinking he had
the leak repaired and the room free
from explosive illuminating gas, he
struck a match. This caused the
whole trouble. The moment he struck
the match there was a fearful explo
sion and. because of his fright, Demp
sey lost his balance. He fell from the
ladder and struck a chair near by. In
falling upon the chair, he broke two
ribs on the left side. One of these
bent inward and penetrated his left
lung in such a manner as to make his

School Fight Ends in Suit. H. IL
Fridley of Buffalo township, chairman
of the Oak Hill school board, has en
tered suit against Edward Roth for
$5,000 for alleged slander. Mr. Fridley
says that on Jan. CO, 190C, when' he was
presiding over a meeting of the board.
Mr. Roth arose and. in a 20-minute ad
dress, slandered him outrageously,
calling him a liar and saying that he
was unfit to occupy the chair as pres
ident of the board. Mr. Fridley main
tains that this has ruined his reputa
tion, both as president of the board and
as a private citizen. He says that it
has also reflected upon the competency
of the teacher of the school and caused
many parents to take their children
out of school. He therefore maintains
that he has been damaged in the sum
of $5,000 for which he asks judgment.

Extends East Moline Plant. Prog
ress is being made by the Union Malle
able Iron company on its plans for an
extensive addition to the big plant at
East Moline. The work of preparing
the plans is in progress, and it is in
the hands of G. H. Jordan, formerly of
the firm of Jordan & Daebelliehn, con
tractors. Mr. Jordan outlined the Mal
leable plant as it stands today, and is
well qualified to provide for the ex
tensive improvement. . The company
expects to add to its capacity to the
extent of 50 per cent. The chief ad
ditions will be to the foundry, core and
annealing departments. The foundry
building, which is now 152 feet wide,
will be extended by building an addi
tion 231 feet long. The annealing de
partment will be in a separate building
which will probably be 200 feet long,
and the addition to the coreroom will
be about 150 feet. The enlarging of
any one of these departments called
for the enlarging of all. Besides this
work the company will add extensively
to its power capacity by installing a
new engine and dynamos,

Could Not Prove Case. The case
igainst F. C. Harrington of the Griggs
music house was dismissed by Justice
H. N. Williams. Mr. Harrington was
arrested charged with violating the
itinerant merchant ordinance of Moline
3n Monday, but the case was contin
ued. In a case of this kind it is al
most impossible to prove a man's in
tentions. Mr. Harrington, it was claim
ed, would move to Moline during tho
busy season and set up in business,
and when it grew, slacjt would move
back to Davenport. -Witnesses testi
fied that he had tried to lease certain
buildings to locate permanently, but
had been unsuccessful. James Coin
said that he had tried to buy his lease
on the Kracke building on Fifteenth
street,, but that he refused : to sell.
There was no evidence introduced to
show that he was violating the ordin
ance and the case was dismissed.
James Coin was fined $3.05 by Justice
Ingelson for contempt of court. He
positvely refused to obey- a subpoena
that was issued subpoenaing him as a
witness in the case.
