A FATAL DRIVE.
BUY THE OLD
A Toudj Mmn Accidentally Kiued at
Hallne--nihapa or Minor Import
ance. An accident, peculiar as it was unfor
tunate in its details and attended as it was
by fatal results, occurred at Moline yes
terday morning. Emil Schroeder, who.
preTiouB to three months ago since
which time he has lived in Davenport
was a resident of Moline, drove over
yesterday with a companion, who like
himself was a painter. The name of
the other man has not yst been ascer
tained, but both it seems were more or
less under the influence of intoxicants.
At any rate the first notice that waB given
them was when they attempted to borrow
a shovel in the upper end of that town,
not stating for what purpose they intend
ed to use it, but saying that they were
going out to Riverside cemetery. The
nixt trace of them was when both were
pulled out of a ditch on the Riverside
road, both badly injured, and Schroeder
fatally so. Tbe Moline patrol wagon con'
veyod the sufferer to his home on Front
and Brown streets, Divenport, where it
was discovered upon examination that his
breast and spine bad been injured, and the
services of four physicians were of no
avail, for at 4 o'clock this morning he
breathed his last. Exactly how the acci
dent occurred is not known. An eye
witness says tbe men got into a dispute
when nearing the fatal spot, as to which
should drive, and that Schroeder siezed
the Hues and the horse which was blind,
stumbled down into the ditch, the
bugey overturning and throwing both
men out, the horse tramping and falling
on Schroeder.
Schroeder was thirty-two years of ae,
a member of the well known family of
that name formerly residing in Moline.
He leaves a wife and one child, another
child having died a few weeks ago of
diphtheretic croup and was buried at Mo
line. His wife's maiden name was Lena
Binke, daughter of Hanke Binke, of
Hillsdale. Schroeder was a nephew of
Mr. August Herkert, of this city.
Last Saturday night Gottleib Meyer,
who for two months has been in the em
ploy of Warner's brewery, was walking
on the Burlington tracks near the eastern
city limits, when he wan struck by fn i;Ut
train Xo. I t and knocked into the ditch.
The train was at once stopped and the
man tken to the Moline police station,
where Dr. Dunn examined him and found
the back and left si je injured. He was
brought to St. Luke's hospital, this city
where he is reeling easy though very sore
and it is tieiieved a rib is broken, though
nothing serious is upprehended.
An engineer ol tbe steamer Wes. Ram
bo caught his hand in the pitman when
near Moline last night and had it badly
crushed, several bones being broken.

The Bun has now passed through more
than half its southerti journey across the
firmament. On September 22 it swept
across the equinoctial line. For three
months preceding that date while the
length of days had been on the decrease
and that of the nights on the increase, the
days were longer than the nights. The
difference in length was virtually elimin
inated by September 22. and at that time
the day light hours and darkness were of
equal length, practically speaking, all
over the globe. For the next two months
following the date named, the days will
still continue decreasing and the nights
increasing in duration, but the nights
will be longer than the days. The oppo
site conditions, however, will prevail all
over the globe south of the equator.
The October moon was new on the 5th
and Hill be full on the 19th. The full
moon of September 20th was the harvest
moon. That which reaches its full stage
on October 19ih will be the hunters'
moon. The interval between the succcs
sive risings of the full moon in October
will be small as compared with that of
other months, except August and Sep-
tcmber, although it will be greater than
that of tbe latter. The reason for the
trifling retardation in tbe case of the bar
vest month is the nearness to the ecliptic,
or path of the earth's motion, of that
part of the moon's orbit traversed in Sep-
tember. The angular distance between
the moon's orbit and the ecliptic is but
little greater in October than in Septem
ber. Consequently there is a compara
tively short interval between successive
risings of the hunters' moon.

In yesterday's St. Louis Republic ap
peared a special dispatch from Wichita,
which read as follows:
A man supposed to be Patrick Mc
Permott, who ft.tn.1v stabbed a man at
Rock Island, 111., 'ast January, was ar
rested here last night, and is now in jail
awaiting identification by the Rock Islnnd
authorities. He made a desperate fli;ht
when arrested, Htid succeeded in badly
wounding an officer, and was himself
badly cut about tue face and body.
The correspondent evidently alludes to
the murder of Oaniel Dougherty by Mc
Dermott, at Edington, in March. 1885
So far no word has come to Rock Island
of the Wichita capture. It is to be hoped
it is McDermott that has been caught, for
Rock Island county yearns to inflict tbe
full penalty of the law upon him for
his horrible crime, and he will sooner or
later be brought to the punishment he
deserves.

James 8. Woods, the well known
moulder, died at his home, 918 Third ave

SAVED THE TRAIN.
erolc Act of Three Tramps at Bar
tow Saturday Morning.
As & usual thing one rarely expects to
find any virtues in a tramp. On the con
trary he is generally a bundle of vicious
ness and depravity. But once in a while
at least the tramp will develop a good
quality, as shown by tbe fire at the Rock !
river bridge near Barslow, Saturday
morning. A blaze was discovered by
three tramps, and only for their timely
intervention a dreadful catastrophy might
baye happened. They had come from
Savanna and indulged in the luxury
of steeping in a box car Friday night
Along about 4 o'clock in the morning
they awoke cold and chilly, and it was
suggested that a fire be built somewhere
in the vicinity. Looking down the track,
however, they saw a fire already kindled.
It was the C , B. & Q bridge over Rock
river. Hurrying to the scene as fast as
possible, they started to quench the fire.
Several stringers had already been de
stroyed, and the rails had sagged so that
it would have been impossible for a train
to have passed over it. Just then one of
them beard a rumbling in the distance,
and having at one time been a brakeman
on the road, realized that No. 3, the
night express from St. Louis was due,
and unless it was signaled to in time it
would go through the bridge. lie hur
ned as quickly as possible over the tres
tle, waving bis cap as be ran. Fortun
ately Engineer El I wood was keeping
sharp lookout and he stopped the train a
short distance from the death trap. Con
ductor Strain hurried forward, and with
the assistance of his crew and the three
valiant tramps, soon had the fire entirely
quenched.
As a reward for their fidelity and brav
ery Trainmaster Stanton ordered that tbe
three peregrinators be housed and fed at
the company's expense, until passes ar
rived from Beardstown to take them to
St. Louis, their destination-

Chairman Thomas, of the republican
congressional committee, returned Saturs
day evening, and the Union, which must
sneak with authority, i?ives away the
whole slate of affairs as Thomas found
them, when it very indiscreetly says:
Republicans generally, he found, realize
that the majority of 1836 is too light to
rest upon, and propose to do their best
to build it up." This attempt to conceal
fear with an appearance of boldness is
altogether too thin. Mr. Thomas found
Mr. Prentiss gaining gronnd with such
alarming rapidity that it took his breath
away, and for two days he did not know
whether he was in the Eleventh congres'
sional district or Nick Wortbington's dis
tnct, or even over in Iowa, where every
tbini; is always democratic. Finally he
hied himself to Chicago and there lay the
matter before the state central committee,
taking care to impress upon that highly
responsible body the "abominable" con
dition of things in tbe Eleventh district.
After it became known tbat Chairman
Thomas bad returned, the faithful
flocked into his drug store and hovered
about him for inspiration, but alas! poor
Thomas could give it not, neither could
he satisfactorily satisfy their wants. They
asked far beyond his power to give and
they went away none of them inspired,
but feeling that if it must be so, Prentiss
is about as good a man as the democracy
could have put up.

The Rock Island republican clubs did
not go to Muscatine on the steamboat
Saturdav afternoon, and they are very
glad now that they followed their better
judgment and remained at home. The
boat which bore the Davenport brethren
down river did not see Muscatine, nor
did any ot the passengers. The boat lay
on a sand bar about half way down for
fully twelve hours, and the passengers
were obliged to follow Robinson Crusoe's
fashion and provide for themselves with
what the strange island afforded in the
shape of fuel and food. They reached
home at noon yesterday and marched
triumphantly through the streets of Dav
enport as if they had been down helping
to elect McManua and helping Pat
O'Mara out in Muscatine county.

ved from Quincy at noon, and brought
tbe intelligence that his father had rallied
sufficiently yesterday, so that his physi
cian felt confident of being able to bring
the doctor home soon unles9 a relapse
occurred, but had abandoned all hope of
nal recovery. The doctor fully realizes
his condition, but has fought against his
injuries with a success which has been
surprising, even to those who knew him
best.
Edward Jackson, brother of Mr. Otis
Channon Jackson of "The Cafe," returned
Saturdav evening from Quincy, where he
spent last week. He was an eye wit
ness of the terrible accident in which Dr.
Bowman was so seriously injured. Mr.
Jackson sat near the amphitheatre
on which were seated four thou
sand people. Two fire balloons had
been sent up and the third was about to
start when the amphiteatre came down
with a crash. Fully 150 people were in
jured, of which Dr. Bowman fared the
most seriously. Tne display of fire
works was continued for two hours after
the accident, having just commenced at
the time of the unfortunate occurrence.
The accident was due to a failure to prop
erly brace the amphitheatre at the ends.
The front was braced, but the west end
gave way and the whole structure tum
bled in that direction. Jackson says tbe
daily papers of Quincy bitterly denounce
the contractor who erected it and charge
him with criminal carelessness.

SHADOWING THE CLERKS.
Long Fidelity b Wo Guarantee That Em
ploye An Temptation FrooC
Within the last ten yean there have been
so many defaulters skipping to Canada after
yean of honesty and trustworthy service
that the officials of tbeee institutions have
grown to know that long fidelity la no guar
antee that the employe may not succumb to
temptation at last, and that all will bear
watching. Said thedetectiTe: "Ifi a strange
thins;, but yoa never can tell about a man.
Borne will resist any sort of lore, but many a
man is honest because he has never had
great temptation to be otherwise." I've
known men to handle money for thirty
years and never have the slightest impulse
to steel it, and suddenly they would fall into
the toils of some adventuress and before they
knew it they were plunged into a system of
peculation and falsifying accounts that ended
in ruin. Or else they thought they saw the
chance, by some lucky speculation, to end
their long bondage to clerking, they took one
big sum, failed, and the next news they had
levanted over rate the Dominion.
"So most of the banks keep a special detec
tive for that service, and every now and then
he begins to shadow a clerk. He finds out
where he goes and everything he does for a
week or two, and from his report tbe bank
official can judge whether his accounts need
looking after or not. When the detective
reporta that a new clerk is seen in noted re
sorts and appears to be spending considerable
money, they overhaul his books very rigidly
and give him to understand that a man who
lives a wild life is not likely to remain in
positions of trust. An old clerk who has been
with a house a long time is not under regular
espionage may be once a year or so the de
tective devotes a week or ten days to follow
ing him about and sati&f ying himself he's in
no mischief. The new ones are almost al
ways under surveillance, and there's not
much they do that is not known. Bometimes,
while we are shadowing one clerk we run
across another.
"1 have beard some pugilistic tales from
indignant yonng fellows who objected to
being shadowed, and who, having caught tbe
bundling detective iu the act, had pummeled
him within an inch of his life, but most of
them submit good natui-edly, knowing that
the bank is more or leas justified in taking
such precautions. It has a good effect on
many of the young fellows, too; tbey keep out
of places with unsavory reputations, know
ing that there is a good chance of their ap
pearance there being reported at beadqnar
tera, and Burn a report militating strongly
against their advancement" Brooklyn

Hon. T. J. Scofield, of Carthsge, ar
rived at the Rock Island house at 11
o'clock this moraine and tonight at
Armory hall he makes the first of five
speeches in this county. Mr. Scofield is
presidential elector for the Eleventh dis
trict and he is one of the most highly re
spected thoroughgoing democrats in the
state. He has few equals for ability
and complete understanding of national
issues. The democrats of the district
made a wise move in nominating him for
elector, for there is no other mas in the
party better qualified to advocate tbe pol
icies of the party or to place them in a
manner to be understood by tbe voters.
Mr. ScoBeld bas been talking contino
nonsly since the opening of the campaign,
and by the time election day arrives will
have spoken several times in every
county in tbe district.
In conversation with an Aroub repre
sentative this morning he said tbat Mr.
Prentiss' election was practically assured.
and that Gen. Palmer would run much
better sll over the district than had been
even hoped for.
