THE TRIAL TRIP.
The First Car Crosses The Bridge
An Important and Memorable Jour.
"eyma Street Car-Incident, or an
At 8:30 o'clock Wednesdav evenlni? a
double carriasre rolled out of Snider's liv
ery stable on Third avenue, and proceeded
across the bridge and Island of Rock Isl
and to Davenport. It contained C. J.

of tho Chicago City RiiKvay company's

an Argos representative. Uoon reaching
Davenport Ihe party was driven to the
telegraph office where Supts. Luck and
Sehnitger alighted, and soon re
turned to the carriage with
lengthy telegram. It was from
Mr. C. B. Holmes, president
of the eyudicale and dated Chi
cago. The message gave directions as
to the running of the first car over the
Mississippi river between the cities of
Rock Island and Davenport, and outlined
the route to be followed. The party was
then driven to ttie corner of Second and
Main Streets, where it was joined by oth
ers whom Mr. Sehnitger had invited, and
all were soon comfortably seated in car
No. 4, of the new Bridge, Second Street
& Northwest Davenport line, which is
part of the Holmes system. The car had
for motive power an old time and faitbtu!
street car team popularly known as
"Tom and Jeiry," a pair of mules which
for years preceding the introduction of
electricity on that road, pulled the Cen
tral railway cirs up Brady street hill, but
when mule power was abindoned Mr.
Sehnitger bought the team, and it was a

conductor. Full fare for the round trio
ten cents was collected from each
p-ij-senger; none were exen.pt. The list
of those on board, which is appended,
wis carefully taken. and Supt. Luck took
it to Chicago with him Monday night where
it will be filL-d for court record:

The car ascended the Davenport ap
proach to the Rock Island bridge without
incident, while the trip across the great
structure was most enjoyable, the car
runniDg as smoot:.y aud comfortably as
if on a cable or electric rond. At the
8rst curve on the island the first difficulty
was met. Titere the car left the track,
and all hands had to contribute to the
musc.jlar power of nghiing it. Ail went
well across Armstrong avenue until the
next curve turning into the causeway was
reached. There the car went off again,
and all aboard got out in the drivit.g rain
to 9traighten things out. This time
Supt. Sehnitger unhitched the mules and
permitted the gool nature,! animals to
view the exertions and sam that cotn-
VMtrctl hum n sircuietii v,.t,i orlox to
bear in a predicament such as this. The
muhs pricked up their ears and seemed
to enjoy the scene hug-!y. They were
soon attached again, however, aud the
other animal rcentt-ring the cr, the
journey was resumed. About haif way
down the causeway one of the
mules missed his footing and went down
into one of the uucovered tie ditches,
while the other was so full of joy over
the distinction that hnd been conferred
upon him and his companion,
that be was "for going right along.
This tangled things up consider
ably and Supt. Sehnitger putting on
brakes and turning the ribbons over
to Joe Herbert, alighted, and going up to
the head of Jerry, the enterprising mule,
whispered something confidentially in his
ear. The mule looked at his companion.

safety. The car crossed the numerous
railroad tracks safely and then off she
went again. The former mode of putting
it back was again introduced and the car
glided up Twenty-fourth street and
around the curve into ThirJ avenue. The
passengers instinctively jumped from the
car at this curve, but the car fooled thsro
and stuck to the track and then the poor
mortals who had earned their ride already
were obliged to rare after the car, for
Supt. Sehnitger and his mules had im
proved an opportunity to give their
guests a chance to test the muscular
strength of the lower as well as the upper
limbs. All finally got aboard again, but
at the junction of the Upion line at Nine
teenth street the same old story was for
cibly impressed upon the minds of the
passengers. The car went along all
right to Fifteenth street and north to
Second avenue, running into the tracks
of the Moltne & Rock Island line. The
mules were detached, hitched to tho other
end and the journey btck to Davenport
was made much more easily.
All alongThird avenue between Twen
ty-fourth and Nineteenth streets, where
the new line is built, people rushed to
their doors and cheered the car aB it
passed. A new enterprise was welcomed
which by this altogether enjoyable act,
bad firmly and permanently established
the only street car line over the Missis
sippi, and those who had ridden in the
first car had taken a part in the enactment
of an historical event.

Probable Murder at Davenport
Harxlaia In Bock Inland-Olio Vorbett
and the Stolen Bonds A aar'n Evil
MAT BE MURDER
On the night before Christmas, when
there should have been peace on earth,
good will toward all, Davenport came to
the front with one of its disgtaceful
bloody scrapes, and this time with very
fair prospects of a murder as the out
come. The affair occurred in Dick
Howard's saloon on east Fourth street,
between Rock Island and Iowa.
The Democrat Gazette says Thomas
Shaughnessy, a young man about twenty-one
years of age was the victim, and
Howard, tbe saloonkeeper, was the slay
er. He shot Shaughnessy in tbe abdo
men and 'ben hurried to the police sta
tion and surrendered himself to Capt.
Martens. The captain accompanied
Howard to the scene of the tragedy and
found Shaughnessy lying on tbe floor of
Howard's saloon in a dying condition,
breathing heavily. A physician was
summoned and the young man was taken
to his home on Seventh street between
Rock Island and Iowa. Capt. Mar
tens placed Howard under arrest and
took him to tbe station. Nothing defi
nite is known as to what
caused the shooting. Howard
was interviewed by a reporter
shortly after his arrest, and appeared to
be very much excited over the affair. He
claims that be did the shooting in self
defense. Shaughnessy entered his place
shortly after 11 o'clock, he says, and
asked for an oyster stew. He served him
with it, and when the time came to pay
for it, Shaughnessy refused to pay. How
ard states that Shaughnessy called bim
vile names and finally took a vinegar
bottle from the table castor, threw it at
him and left the siloon. A short time
after SbaughnesBy reentered the place
with a rock in his hand and threatened to
kill Howard. Howard then pulled his
revolver aud shot him.
Information from Davenport today is
that tbe victim is in a very critical con
dition, with chances for his recovery or
death about tqual.
OTIS COKBETT'S PECULIAR POSITION.
Monday night's Arocs described Ihe
arrest of Mr. Otis CorOett, the former
Rock Island merchant, at What Cheer,
Iowa, and his implication with the dis
positi in of the stolen bonds, the detec
tion of w hich has created considerable of
a sensation in Chicago. Inquiry at
Mitchell & Lynde's bink, where Corbett
attempted to Bell the coupons on the
bonds, develops tbe facts that on Septem
ber 24 last, Mr. Corbett made his call
there on tbis mission. Mr. Corbett
stated that be had taken tbem from a
farmer in payment of goods bought at
his store. The amount they represented
was $87.87. Mr. Mitchell examined the
coupons, pronounced them good, but
told Mr. Corbett there was a question as
to whether or not they had been stolen.
He would take them for collection, but
w-ould pay nothing for tbem until he
learned that there were no crooked circum
stances connected with them. He there
fore sent part of them to the First Na
tional bank in Chicago, and some to New
v .-, Tk. . ,j j
number, were from the Standard Club, of
Chicago. Cook county bonds, Board of
Trade, C & W. railway, City of Chicago,
and C. & W. Indiana railway. Tbe bank
was afterward informed that the coupons
were from stolen bonds.

Larkin's house, taking it from that gen
tleman's vest pocket, but at Mr. Schroe
der's house their search was fruitless.
William Marshion and Ada Hampton
were arrested in a disorderly house on
Fourth avenue by Deputy Marshal Kra

morning State's Attorney O'Mara was in
