Atkinson, Sept. 15. Residents ol Atkinson, thirty miles from Moline on Route 7, were awakened at 2 this morning when a small bomb thrown by an unidentified man who escaped in an automobile, exploded before the soft drink parlor operated by Ferd Floming, shattering the door and the window above it. The nature of the bomb, Which was inefficiently made if it was intended for destructive purposes, indicates that it was rfteant as a threat, according to village authorities. Bits of paper and string were found nearby. One theory is that the deed may be credited to residents of East Moline. The Floming soft drink parlor Is locted in the Fred Atwell building. The first floor of the building formerly was used as a moving picture theater, and the . parlor is in the basement. No accurate descriptions of the man who threw the bomb or his car are available, but it is said that he was alone, and that he left his vehicle and ran a third of the way across the street before he threw the missile. He ran back to his car and was a block from the scene before the bomb exploded, It is said. Atkinson's night watchman goes off duty at midnight, two hours be fore the bombing occurred. Abandoned Boat Said to Used as Distillery Is Sunk In River. Be By Associated Press Leased Wire. St. Louis, Sept. 15. The charred hull of the stern-wheeler steamboat Illinois lay at the bottom of the MississiDni river todav. suDDOsedly burned by incendiarists who sought to cover up tne operations oi me old craft as- a floating distillery. - Just as federal prohibitionists were about to investigate the boat, it disappeared from a dock at Alton, 111., early yesterday and was sent floating down the river, a towering mass of flames. It was the first floating distillery ever to come to the attention of federal nnprat.ives here, and thev sus pect it was the largest source of al cohol hereabouts. Estimates oi us daily capacity ranged from 600 to 1000 gallons. The old vessel had a long and honorable career on the Mississippi and Illinois rivers, first as a packet and later as a fish and game conservation boat. It was equipped with large tanks, formerly used to carry live fish. Found in Dock. The Illinois first came to the attention of prohibition agents in August, when it was found anchored between two barges, one of which nrac nrt with u-hiskv mash and the other with distilling utensils and fuel. The agents returned the next aay with a search warrant, but the old stern-wheeler had vanished and the barge with the mash was scuttled before they were able to reach the scene. The Illinois was located only Saturday in a dock at Alton. Sunday morning St. Louis papers, containing a story that federal agents had located the craft and were investigating its activities, reached Alton at 9 p. m. Saturday night. Less than six hours later the vessel was cut loose from its moorings, and apparently towed out into the current. Opinion was current in Alton today that the boat was fired immediately after its owners learned -of the federal inquiry. 1 Without License. For several months the craft had operated without a marine license and federal customs and prohibition agents were unable to ascertain who the Illinois' new owners were. While the old stern-wheeler, on which Illinois officials used to make junketing trips and entertain their friends, was still ablaze, Alton police apprehended a man who said he was Milo Phillips, St. Louis. Phillips disclaimed knowledge of the fire and said he was returning up the river in a motorboat from a drinking party on Maple island when arrested.

Out-maneuvered at the start and outfooted in the ten-mile beat into the wind, Sir Thomas' boat appeared to have no chance against the American defender, and what may prove to be the Irish baronet's last attempt at the "silly old mug," seemed to be another lost cause. Harold S. Vanderbilt, wealthy amateur sportsman, who skippered the Enterprise, handled his white-hulled boat like a master and put her on the mark straight and true. Ernest "Ned" Heard, veteran English skipper at the helm of Shamrock V, appeared to have met his master in the American sportsman. He fought a losing battle from the start and lost precious minutes at the turn when he reached .for the mark a bit too early and was forced to pull up the challenger so hard that she almost lost.way. Ahead of him all the way from the starting line was the towering mast and wind-filled sails of the Enterprise and tact as he would, that barricade of sail stood between him and the breeze. The Shamrock crossed the line on the weather side, but she was out-footed by the Enterprise, which quickly crossed her bow and held that position to within sight of the ten-mile marker. Enterprise made the turn at 12:21:30, just 1 hour, 41 minutes and 3 seconds after the starting gun sent them on their way. - Speed Expected.

L Citizens Aroused Over Another Murder; Several Young Men Questioned. By Associated Press Leased Wire. t . South Bend, Ind Sept. 15. Another girl murder as atrocious, as unprovoked and apparently as barren of clues as the first, has transformed South Bend into a city of agitated citizenry calling upon the law for the quick arrest and pun' ishment of the slayers. Alice Woltman, 17 years old, was murdered in her bed early vester aay. Her tnroat was cut with a razor. So quick was the killing and so silent that three other children asleep in the same room one of them beside her in the bed were unaware of it. A few minutes later the thumping of the girl's body on the stirway to which, dying, she had crawled, awakened the household. Question Men. Two young men who had been paying her attention have been questioned without, however, providing any clue to the identity of the killer. Less than three weeks ago the body of 7-year-old Marberine Appel was found in an alley near her home. She had been attacked, then murdered. The two killings today prompted the taking of added precautions for the protection of South Bend children. There was a noticeable absence of children from the streets last night. Was Engaged. Alex Pietrzak, 18, who was twice questioned yesterday and who was to be requestioned today, told police he and Alice were engaged to be married.

Barney Kluszczyusci, 23,' who was Alice Woltman's escort to several dances recently, was taken into custody in the belief that questioning might draw from him information of value in hunting the girl's slayer. Crowds gathered about the Woltman home yesterday in such numbers that police had to stretch ropes about the place to hold them in f check. No motive for the killing had been discovered early today.
