Two Hash Hanston Horrib-y (tlah d by FtU-iw Htranctr Xamed White llflaared for .fe Jo.eph Roaenflrld tttabbrd ! Moline. Hugh Houston, a 19 year old led of Iowa City, who works as newsboy on the C , R. I. & P. road, was badly cut with a knife by one White, claiiciog to bail from Chicago, in a row at Drost's saloon, on Fourth avenue and Twenty-second street, last nigbt. Houston's story is that he and a friend named Donovan, al- j so from Iowa City, fell in with White and another man, whose name he does not know, and drank and shook dice to gether in the saloon and later went into back room to play cards. There they became engaged in a quarrel, during which While drew a huse knife. They then went outside and in a fight which ens jed Houston received a terrible cut along the side of the bead. Stil'.he was game and itb his companion succeeded in getting White down on the pavement adminis tering him a severe pounding, battering his face in such a manner that tbe blood fljwed freely. Finally, however, thev were separated and Houston, wiih the gapping wound in his face, from which tbe blood was (parting as if from a fountain, was taken by a citizen to the Four;h avenue drugstore to have hUhe-.d dressed, and while waiting for the door to be opened, White who had done the cutting ran tip behind the man who was still bleeding profusely from the wounds which he had received, and struck him with a brick or rock, agiin knocking him jown. White was promptly knocked down by the citizen in charge of Hous ton, who held him until the police arrived with the patrol wagon, who took the pair to the Armory, where Djcit- Paul and Kinyon attended Houston and stiched up the gash on his bead which was found to be about seven inches long. Tbe knife entered tbe neck just back of the left ear, and passed under and arjund the ear, cut ting a little piece from the bottom of tbe latter and extending up the side of the face about three inches, and is an ugly looking cash. The cut on tbe back of tbe head inflicted by the rock with which he was hit, proved to be only a scalp wound, and is not considered seri ous. The doctors say that bad the cut under the ear varied the least, it would have severed the carotid artery and death would have resulted almost in Btantaneously. The poctors dressed tbe injuries and tha sufferer ws made comfortable and rested well during- the night, and is consideraby better today Houston says he has an uacie living ii the city, and that he had come down from Iowa City to see tbe Libor dav celebration. White is locked up in the city prison JOSEPH ROSENFIELD STABBED. Joseph Rosenfield, a plumber residing with his parents at 223 Twenty-flist street, was stabbed by a colored man named am ton uoiweu at tne picnic grounds of the L ibor day demonstration in Moline late yesterday afternoon. He was atteided by Dr. Merrvman, of Mo line, and afterward brought to his home in this city where Dr. Truesdale attended him. He was cut in four places, once in the back, twice on the breast and re ceiyed one gash en his right arm. His injuries, which were at first thought to be very serious, are not now considered so. and be is resting easy today. The trouble grew out of Rosenfleld epi.ling beer on Uolwell to which the latter ob jected, and tbe cutting affray was the consequence. Colwell is locked up in Moline. Flank Movement on Jack Frost. Washixgtox, Sept. 8. As an outgrowth of the scheme for artificial rain produc tion artificial frost prevention is now suggested. L. G. Kuiffeu, of Chicago, has written a letter to Secretary Kusk on the subject. His theory is that clouds or ar tificial mists prevent the radiation of heat from the earth. He suggests that the machinery and materials used by Col. Dyrenfurth in causing rain be teste! as a means for bringing the clouds closer to the earth and of creating a sort of fog which will be a preventative against the ravages of frost.

Chicago, Sept. 8. In a dingy room at 60 Wesson street Mrs. Lizzie Griffith i lay last night suffering from bruises inflict ed by her husband, who then occupied a cell at the East Chicago avenue station. The couple were married in Scotland a dozen years ago. Yesterday morning the neighborhood in which tbey live was aroused by cries of "Murder!" "He'.p!" "He's killing niel" Griffith had his wife down on the floor choking her when a po liceman burst in' the door. He had kicked and pummeled her until she was one mass of bruises, and blood was flowing from a dozen wounds. The kitchen door looked like that of a slaughter house, and the woman's dress was soaked in blood. Hard Work to Save Her Lire. The patrol wagon was called and Griffith, fighting and blaspheming, was carried off to the station. A neighboring doctor was called in and for three hours lie labored to stop the flow of blood that poured in torrents from the woman's head and body. At one time it was thought she would die. One of the blood vessels in her nose had been ruptured. She lay on a filthy bed last night with her 10-year-old bov beside her. Her face was terriblv swollen and discolored. She could not look out of her eyes. Black rings encircled them. Tbe sheet and coverlet were blood-bespattered. Woman, the Incomprehensible. "My husband," said the woman in a fee ble voice, "is a gentleman and he'll pay my doctor bills. The person who sent for the patrol wagon to take him away was very impudent. Robert Griffith is as good a man ever stepped in shoe leather, and if be beats me it is nobody's business. This is not the first time he has whipped me within an inch of my life, but I for give bim. He's a good man there is none better in Chicago and the person who sent for the police had but little to do. Robert Griffith is a gentleman, and I am lady enough not to appear against him in court." Mrs. Griffith is about 40 years old. WHITECAPS AT OKAWVILLE. Tbey Tackle the Wrong Customer Tronble Over the Liquor Question. Okawville, 111., Sept. 8 Owing to the disorder at Sunday beer picnics near this place the church people have begun a cru sade against the liquor sellers. For the past two Sundays every saloon in the town has been closed up, and much bit terness engendered. Sunday night a crowd of forty or fifty men on horsehack, with white caps drawn over their faces, made visit to the residence of A. Morgan, a prominent churchman and one of the wealthiest and most influential citizens of Washington county. Mr. Morgan was prepared for them. Wben the whitecaps surrounded the house and called for him be opened fire upon the crowd with a Winchester rifle. Three shots were fired into the crowd and then it became panic stricken and fled in disorder. Attacked by Hired Kuffians. Sunday morning two strangers got off the train. Y'esterday morning they hired a horse and buggy and drove around the town. They finally met John Tea u beau. a prominent churchman. They sprang Iroui tbe vehicle and jumped on the un suspecting deacon. After beating him in a horrible manner they sprang into'the buggy and drove out of town. An un armed crowd of citizens tried to stop them, but the strangers pulled revolvers, and they were allowed to go. The church people believed that the strangers were hired to come to Okawville and assault prominent church members. Deacon Teaubeau is badly hurt, and his recovery 13UOUUIIU1.
