serious that the council has been ap

VIEWING A GREAT DISASTER
Peoria Paper Tells What Sightseers
at Cherry Were Up Against.
Peoria Herald-Transcript: It was a
disgusted bunch of sight-seers which
stepped off the evening Rock Island
train yesterday on their return from
Cherry. The great disaster had drawn
train loads of morbid curiosity seekers
from its first day, but yesterday ail
records were broken. Ten thousand
people thronged the little town. They
were unwelcome, unwanted, and they
didn't get any consideration. Most
of them went hungry. None of them
got much of a chance to look at any
thing horrible owing to the strange re
luctance of the people to expose their
dead to gratify idle curiosity. It rain
ed, and there was no shelter. The
burned mine was roped off at a dis
tance which made it impossible for
the visitors to get in the way of any
one, and as this is a favorite occupa
tion of the sight-seer at an accident,
there was great grumbling.
"Never again," said one Peorlan, as
he climbed off the train. "I've travel
ed a hundred miles to look at a great
disaster, and about the only thing I
was able to see was 400 automobiles
packed in one field while their owners
were skirmishing for something to ea'.
Maybe they found it, but I didn't."
And he made a rush for the nearest
ECLIPSE OF MOON IS DUE
One Scheduled for Friday Night to

If the sky Is cloudless and the moon
shines as usual Rock Island people
who happen to be out will see a total

According to the astronomer's dope
the eclipse will first be visible in South
America and northeastern Asia, and

Australia. The eclipse, however, will
be generally visible in North America,
it Is stated, and as the moon will be
full on the night of the 27th, an excel
lent view of the phenomena should be
obtained, provided the sky is clear.

FLEES OVER THE BRIDGE
Alarm Given and but Fifteen Minutes

Efficiency of the Rock Island arsenal
guard system was demonstrated yester

island under suspicious circumstances.
Within 15 minutes every approach
leading from the island was cut off.

John M. Holt was on guard duty at
the Moline bridge. He noticed a man,
poorly dressed, tramp past the guard
house along the Milwaukee right of
way, going east. The man walked al
most to Sixteenth street, and then re
traced his steps. Just then the guard's
attention was attracted by a passing
train, and when he had completed his
duties at the crossing the stranger
was on the bridge, headed for the is
land. Leaves nnKeK'; on Run.
The man was carrying a long pole
across one shoulder, and on either end
of the pole was a satchel. One was a
telescope, strapped shut; the other was
a grip, locked-. When Mr. Holt saw the
man was intent on reaching the Island,
he called to him to halt. The man,
instead of stopping, dropped his bag
gage on tfco bridge and ran with all
the speed at his command for the is
land. The Moline police were summoned
and notice was telephoned to guard
headquarters on the island. Guards
were immediately sent to every ave

toward the Moline side of the island
was taken up. Finally the man was
cornered. He was escorted to the
