GREW CONSTANTLY WORSE
Hnuiort In Clrcnlatlon Respecting the
Death of Edward Flaherty Who
Died Monday Morning at
the Infirmary Som.
Edward Flaherty, until recently em
ployed as an engraver at the Dueber
works, died Sunday morning at 1
o'clock at the Infirmary hospital. The
remains were taken In charge by the
members of the engravers associa
tion, who paid the expenses of Inter
ment, the funeral services occurring
Monday afternoon, the services being
observed at St. Mary's church and the
Rev. Father Trelber conducting the
Flaherty came to this city from Bos
ton In February, where he has a sister
residing In one of the suburbs of that
great city, who 13 engaged as an
organist In a Catholic church. Informa
tion regarding her brother's death has
been sent her. About two weeks ago he
received notice that he could secure a
position In Chicago as engraver and
he was about to go to that city when
he received a letter that another party
had secured the position, and Flaherty,
greatly disappointed, did not Im
mediately apply at the Dueber works
for employment, but awaited further
information from Chicago as to secur
ing work there where an engraver
should be required by a Arm with whom
he had corresponded. He was not In the
best of health, and last Friday morning
he became seriously 111 while seated
in front of the Melbourne hotel In West
Tuscarawas street. A telephone mes
sage was immediately sent in to the
police station and Turnkey Becherer
in response thereto sent Officer Morten
sen to investigate. Flaherty was found
at the place designated and his condi
tion seemed to be serious. The patrol
wagon was called nnd he was removed
to the police station, where City Physi
cian E. D. Brant was summoned to at
tend to him. The physician gave him
such medicine as he immediately re
quired for his Illness and then In
structed the officers to have the man
taken to the Infirmary. Flaherty was
questioned as to whether he had any
friends or relatives here or any means,
and upon learning that he had none,
the township trustees were called In
and the Infirmary directors In turn, and
on Saturday afternoon Flaherty was
removed to the Infirmary. He was im
mediately placed in the hospital at that
Institution and Dr. J. L. Reed was call
ed. Flaherty continued to grow worse,
hemorrhages appearing and he died
It is stated that friends of Flaherty,
members of the engravers association,
called at the hospital Saturday while
Flaherty was still living, and also Sun
day, after he was dead, and they al
lege that Flaherty was not properly
cared for. A News-Democrat reporter
called at the Melbourne Monday morn
ing to get the statements of the men
who made the visit but he was inform
ed that they were not there Just at the
time, but several other members were
seen, and they told the story as It was
told them. They stated that when
Flaherty was placed In the hospital his
clothes were not removed from his body
and that when he had died the name
clothes remained on his body, partly
covered with the blood resulting from
the hemorrhages, Indicating to them
that the clothes had not been taken off.
They appeared to be very Indignant at
the manner in which their late friend
has been cared for, and stated the
would have paid for his care If they
had been properly notified before hand.'
Dr. J. L. Reed, who attended
Flaherty was called upon. He stated
that he was present when Flaherty
was brought to the Infirmary hospital,
and that the man was properly cared
for and placed on a cot and received
the attention of an expert nurse, the
tame as other patients. The doctor
stated that death was due to a hemor
rhagic form of Jaundice and that there
was a condition apparent that might
Indicate that the ailment was brought
upon the patient through exposure. He
stated that Flaherty had told him that
he had also drank liquor and that the
illness was coming upon him several
days before he was taken to the In
firmary. The doctor refuted the state
ment that Flaherty was not properly
cared for, but said that everything pos
sible was done for him.
The infirmary waB called up by tele
phone and the reporter was Informed
that Flaherty constantly grew worse
after his removal to the hospital, but
that the best attention possible was
given him by a trained nurse. When
questioned as, to whether the man was
placed upon a'cot In the same condition
as when taken out, the reporter was in
formed that the clothes had been re
moved and that Flaherty was made as
comfortable as possible.
Turnkey Becherer, at the police sta
tion, who had a conversation with
Flaherty, said: ,
"When Flaherty was brought to the
police station, Friday morning, tierwae
very nervous. called the atentlon. of
other officers to his (Condition, and Pr.

tioned, he said he would go there. We
called the proper officials and later on,
I think after dinner, he was taken to
the infirmary. He said he had no money
and that was the reason he was lying
around and exposing himself. He told
me his home was In the east and that
he came to this city In February to
work, and that he was boarding at the
Melbourne. One of Flaherty's
friends told me afterward that Fla
