REV, N, G, WHITNEY KILLED IN CHICAGO Firmer United Brethren Minister Here Run Down By a Horse. HE DIED TWO HOURS LATER He War Veteran Wfes at the Reunion From Gray Eagle, Minn.-- Peddier'i Horee Struck Him. Nonnan CK Whitney. years old, formerly in charge of the United Brethren church here aud since residing at Gray Eagle, Minn., was knocked down and trampled npou by a runaway horse at North and Milwaukee avenues In Chicago Monday afternoon and re- ceived injuries that caused his death two hours later. He died without re- covering consciousness. The accident occurred shortly after 8 o'clock and was witnessed by several hmidredipersons, who shouted a warn- ing to the veteran just before he was struck by the horse. Mr. Whitney, who a trifle evidently failed to hear ihe shouts of the people, and just as he was about to get on the sidewalk he saw ftie-horse a few feet away from him. The ground where Mr. Whitney was walking was slippery, aud as the ani- tta upon him the old man slipped Before he could get out of way the iron shoes of the horse strnot'ium in the face and he sank to the pavement unconscious. The front wheels of the wagon, which belongs to Morris Sober and which was loaded with vegetables, passed over the old man's body, but before it could go Sergeant Foley of the West North avenue police station seized the bridle and succeeded in stopping the animal Mr. Whitney was at once taken to the St. Elizabeth's hospital and a message was sent to the wife and chil- dren. It is thought they will arrive in Chicago today. Mr. Whitney was a member of the Iron Brigade. He wore a badge bear- ing the inscription Sixth, Seventh and Wisconsin, and the monogram, United States army, Twenty-fourth Michigan and Ninteenth Indiana. The horse had been left standing in ftont of 1301 Milwaukee avenue with- out hitching. The owner was inside eating his dinner. A street car fright- ened the animal, which ran down Mil- waukee avenue, narrowly missing sev- eral people before it struck Mr. Whit- ney. The immediate cause of death was concussion of the brain. The West North avenue police ar- rested Scher on the charge of assault and leaving a horse unhitched in the street. layer of Bobb Couple at Butna Visla Still at Large.

Council Street Committee and Petitioning Property Owners May Have a Tilt. Trouble is again brewing between the street committee of the city council and the leaders of the property owners who petitioned the council regarding street improvements sometime ago. The street committee has been going ahead making repairs, but there is a differ- ance of opinion on that point as a great deal of these so-called repairs are claim ed to be improvements by the council's opponents. This morning the street workers under the direction of the street committee 'went to work on Fulton street in the Fourth ward to cut down the street somewhat and put in a cross walk. This brought a protest from C W. Twining, who telephoned notice to members of the street committee thai the work must cease otherwise they would be liable to go down into thei own pockets and pay for it. The notic, was not heeded, however, and the worl p oceeds as planned. The membtw o the street committee declare that it wil not cease, unless they are stopped by in junction, threats to take the coarse thi law offers being made by those win have started in to inaugurate reform in the matter of street work. They contend that street improvements shonl be made at the property owners expense Mrs. J. C. Hood and daughter return ed from Brodhead this forenoon.

MURDERER HAS A LONG START. dr. Fred Trachsel, Pianist, Arouses Great Appreciation For His Work. It was a real pleasure to the audience hat filled the auditorium of the Univer- salist church Tuesday evening to listen n the program at the recital that was iveu by Miss Ada B. Williams. The rtist of the evening was Mr. Fred 'rachsel, an advanced piano pupil of Miss Williams, who has had him from be beginning. He was heard in a pro- rani of Beethoven, Weber, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Hollaeuder lumbers, in which his talents were finely hown and won for him a great appre- iation of his ability as a performer. He irobably played the Beethoven the best showed remarkable talents for one f his years, he being but seventeen rs of age. He is no doubt one of the >est students that has been brought out lere for a long time. He suffers a good .eal from nervousness, which results rom hurrying, but this will be over- cme by continued devotion to his work, le showed considerable finger facility n the Weber Sonata and the Chopin sieces. It is most creditable to him to x able to give an individual recital, and t also attests creditably to the work nd influence of Miss Williams in de- 'eloping her pnpil to the high degree of iroficiency displayed by him. Mrs. Nettie Wegg, .violinist, and Miss Sleonora Thorpe, soprano, were heard n pleasing numbers-. The audience was a most refined one, comprising all the mnslcal culture of he city, and Miss Williams and her mpil have reason to be happy over the of the recital. The program which was thoroughly enjoyed is as fol- ows: Introduction and first movement of Sonata Pathetique..........................Buethoven Sonata, opus 39.

NO NEW DEVELOPEMENTS. In Regard to the Murder of Mr. and Mrs, John Bobb. The developements in the Bobb mur- der mystery today are exactly whal those of yesterday ab- solutely nothing, says the Freeport Democrat. From the present indica- tions the murderer has got clear oJ everything connected with his crime; except conscience and the fear of cap- ture. A few wild rumors were in circula- tion, one of which was that a posse hac the murderer surrounded in a wood in the vicinity of Buena Vista. Then were others of a man of the exac description of the suspect being seen in a dozen different places, but an investi gation of them always resulted in noth ing being discovered. There was noth Ing in the Buena Vista tale, nor in anj of the others. What search there ii now going forward for the murdere: must of necessity be desultory and hap hazard, like the search for the prover bial needle, only it is a whole mow. ir stead of a bnndle of hay that must b looked through to discover it. That is the murderer has the whole of tb wide United States and some of Canad to roam in by this time. Mrs. M. E. McCaffery arrived from Madison this afternoon to make visit to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. Ball.

ANY FRIENDS WERE PRESENT ftei Wedding Breakfast at the Parsonage the Bride and Groom Partly Evade Their Friends. An ideal summer morning and a sun i.it shown gloriously, promising .long fe and prosperity to those who plighted ieir vows, is the kind of a wedding day nit favored Miss May Belle Case and r. Edmund S. Gray. Aud happier ill it must have been to them to have large gathering of friends resent to see them married at uesday morning in the auditorium f the M. E. church. The church had een beautifully decorated for the oc- asiou by the Epworth league to which ie day's bride belonged. The entire ulpit was a mass of palms and ferns Inch made an effective back ground ir the wealth of flowers in pink and Promptly on time CharlesBolender at he huge pipe organ played Mendel- sohn's wedding march as the bridal arty entered the church. Up the road center aisle came the bride on the rm of her mother following her attend- uts, Gladys and Elbridge Smith, little iece and nephew of the bride, pre- eded by the ushers, Messrs. George chadel and Talraadge Bast, and the elatives of the bride and groom. The room aud Rev. Geo. W. Case, father of ie bride, each took a side aisle and aet the party in the center aisle at the Iter, wherb the bride's father performed ie ceremony. The soft strains of Sweetest Story Ever Told" from the ipe organ was a fitting accompaniment o the solemn words of the marriage ser- ice. As the party turned to leave, the Itar and inarched out of the edifice the loheugrin wedding march was played. The bride's gown was a pretty and bo- oming one of Swiss inulle over pink afteta.

Mr. and Mrs. Gray then left at ver the Milwaukee road for Chicago, where they will make a brief stay bo- ore leaving for Sparta, the city that will be their future home. It had been jiven out and was quite generally inderstood by the friends that the bride iid groom would leave on the Illinois Central and as the Milwaukee train left irst the larger number who intendec giving them a parting greeting at the depot were disappointed. The secret eaked out so that a goodly gathering vas there and the bride and groom die not escape the usual shower of rice. A alf hour later saw another such gather ng at the Illinois Central depot, bu1 here was no opportunity to throw the ice they had on hand and they wen back home vowing that they would never come to see another newly weddec couple leave. The acquaintance which resulted in ibis reunion of two fond hearts was orined at Sparta, the groom's home where the bride resided during her ather's pastorate there. The friend hip thus formed ripened to be cnlmi nated at this time.

MANY HORSES ENTER IN THE FAIR RACES List Is Completed and Promises Some Good Speed Events. TEN STARTERS FOR ONE RACE Rainfall Has Been Copious and In Some Sections Unusually Heavy, While Temperature Has Been Lower. The week's review of the Wisconsin :limate and crop service of the weather iiireau is as follows: The average temperature for the past veek was '-lightly lower than that of ;he week- preceding, and ranged from >8 degrees over the extreme northern jonnties to 7S degrees over the southern lortion of the state. The daily maxi- mum temperatures were high, and con- tinued so throughout the week, with no narked or suddsn changes. The rainfall during the week has been copious, aud in some sections, especially >n the southeastern portion of the state, unusually heavy, the total for the week n Racine county exceeding four inches. These rains at some points have been iccompanied by very destructive hail storms and high winds, while the storm it Sheboygan on the developed a ;ypical tornado, which did considerable damage. Frequent showers have dam- aged crops to a considerable extent in some sections, and have retarded'thresh- iuc; and full ploughing. The distribu- tion of rainfall throughout the week has been very uneven, being lightest over the west-central counties and heav- iest over the southeastern. The hot, showery weather has been favorable for the growth of corn, but considerable damage has been done by high winds, and complaints of lodging are numerous. Some early fields have beei) cut, and many others are now ready for the shock or silo, while the lafce plantings will be safe from frost in about three weeks. Complaints of molding and damage to oats from other sources continue, Some threshing has been done, and the yield has been found to lie about as an- ticipated. Second crop clover continues to make very satisfactory progress and some second crop timothy will be cut. Pastures continue very good and fur- nish an abundance of feed. The situation remains practically un- changed, with regard to fruit, although some damage resulted from the severe hailstorms in some portions of the state, and the general opinion seems to be that results will be very unsatisfactory. Small fruits and berries, however, are of very good quality and abundant yield. Buckwheat continues to mnke good progress and promises an excellent yield.

The officials of Stevenson county are skirmishing in this and ad.ioiuing states for the murderer of old John Bobb and wife, and hundreds of men are engaged in the hunt. The offer of a reward of if 1, 000 has added many to the searchers. It is believed the murderer is in hiding in some timber in the northern part of Stepheiison county, and that section as well as the southern portion of Green county is being thoroughly investigated. He was supposed to huve been seen in the vicinity of Jnda, on Mon- day, but every inch of territory there has been aeurched to avail. His description is well known, and it seems that he ought to be run down eventually. If he wears the trousers that he stole from the Bobb home they will make identification easy. They are broadcloth, and instead of beinj; cut in the usual way are made with what tailors call a "bimrd fall." and to see trousers of that cut on a man would attract the attention of anyone at once. Mr. Bobb's will was filed for probate at Freeport yesterday afternoon by his daughter, Mrs. Wetland. Tip. left all liis properly to his wife, at lirr death to KO to legal heirs.
