Jeremiah Eddy; 1624 LeClaire
street Davenport, suicided this morn
ing by hanging himself in an un
finished house he was building on the
lot adjoining his own home. Eddy
was a stairbuilder by' trade, and
while not employed he had occupied
himself with the construction of the
house. He had contracted consider
able debt, and was being pressed by
his creditors, and this is thought to
have caused him to take his own
life. In addition to his financial
troubles, he has been depressed by
the serious illness of his wife, who

BODY OF A Till

of Oklahoma Man.

Address of Latter Is Found iu Cloth
Ihj; Believed to lie Fred An- .
s ' derson of Laivton.
A floater was found in the river ;it
the west end of the city this noon by
two men who are employed on r the
Davis dredge boats which are har
bored in the Denkmann harbor just
below the sawmill. Carl Storr, who
was calking one of' the barges, not
iced what appeared to be the body of a
man floating in the water about 0
feet from the barges. He called John
T. Whistler, the watchman, and they
went out in a row boat to see what It
was. It was found to be the body of
a man and the two men in .the boat
placed a rope around the body and
towed it to shore. Mr. Whistler then
notified the police of the find and the
remains were , taken to the Wheelan
Addrexa of Brother.
There was nothing on the body o
identify it other than the address of
Christ Anderson, who lives on Eight
eenth avenue in Moline, which led the
police to believe that the floater wa3
Fred Anderson of Lawton, Okla. Tho
latter came to Moline several monlha
ago to visit his brother. After stay
ing for a short time he left stating
that he was going to visit other -relatives
in Iowa. He also stated that he
was going to Davenport before lcaviug
to collect $50 due him- from a mau
who lives in that city.
IManppeared Jan. 4.
That was the last that was seen of
him and his brother reported his dis
appearance to the polite departments
of the three, cities, as he feared that
foul play had occurred. In the two
months which have passed since the
man's disappearance, nothing had
been heard of him at all.
The floater was a well dressed man
of possibly 45 years, with a sandy
beard and mustache. This description
tallies very well with that of the miss
ing man,' and the police are sure that
it is he.
