DEATH OF A MAN IN CLYDE, WITH DELIRIUM
Much has been said regarding this
affair, and many conflicting reports cir- .
diluted. We have taken sjms pains to
get what we consider a correct report of
it, which we submit to our realers.
Last week Monday evening the Mar
shal at Clyde, Mr. Molconi, was notified' .
that there was a man, laving in the de-
pot drnuU nnJ that he ;honU 09 taker
care ol. He proceeded at once there.
and found the man laying on the bench
in a state ot ueostly intoxication, with .
nis ciotuing uadlv disarranged and per
son exposed. He shook him and en
deavored to arouse him thinking to Ret "
him upon the train for Tiffin, but it waa
of no avail, the man could not stand up-' .
on his feet, and he was taken to the cal- '
aboose. The next morning (Tuesday) -he
was taken before his honor, Mayor
Perrin and fined $3;00 and costs, and in
default of payment he was again seafc
back to the calaboose. Here he re
mained Tuesday and Wednesday, and
Thursday morning Mr. Mttlcom discov--!
ered that there was something wronir
with him and told Mayor Perrin that her,
was either drunk or crazy. Perrin in
structed the Marshal to tell him if ha
would promise to leave town that ho
would be set at liberty. This was com
municated to the man, .but no promise
could be got from him. He was. how-'
ever let out to go where he wished.
During Thursday afternoon he wan
down town no less than three times, and
returned to the calaboose of his own
free will. Toward night Mr. Maloom.'
discovered that he appeared to be worsa
and called Dr. Soper in to- look, at him.
The doctor after looking at him. said:'
"The man is all burned out. and the
best thing you. can do is- to open the .
door and let him out so he can make up
a nest to die." Dr: Hamden was called
who also said h had Delirium Tremens.,'
Dr. Eaton was also called who said the
same thing. The Marilial then saw Mr.,
Lefever, one of the township trustees.
and by him was instructed to have Ea
ton render any and all assistance in hia
power to the man. Dr. Eaton gave him
medicine and also told Malcom to give
him a good drink of whisky, and by the'
time the train came in going South be
probably could be sent to Tiffin, where ha -had
f riend3 living, The whisky was
provided and given to him. Lefever
told Maloom to let him remain there un
til the train was dae, so he would know
where to find him. and then went to the
depot and procured a ticket to take thai
man to Tiffin. On Malcom going to
take him to the train, he found him by
the privy, in the back room.. A light,
was struck, and he was discovered to be
litorarly wallowinp- in filth. Mr. Mal
com picked him np and carried him into
tne front apartment andi laid him upon
a blanket, and immediately went to the
depot and informed Mr. Lefever of his
condition, requesting him to see him.
in reply to this Mr. Lefever said "he
had no other place foe him." Mr. Mal
com then remained with, and took care
of him as. long as he- could, an j leaving
mm witn xfetet .Hubert, and once more
went to see Mr. Lefever, this time at hia
house and told him. that he "must find a
lace for him and a man to take care of
um, as he could not take care of him all
day and all night; Arrangements were
made with Pete Hubert who was to re
main with him the balance of the night.
inis was nt ten o clock. At ten forty
five Mr. Malcom again wout to see him.
and thought he appeared worse. At ten
minutes alter 2 Mr. Malcom was aroused
from sleep by Dr. Eaton, who told him
the man was dead, 'i'he-v then carried
the body to the Engine House where it
was laid out. That the man suffered
for want of victuals, water or air is false.
Good victuals were carried to him three
times each day and fresh water the same.
That he smothered is also false, as dur
ing Thursday, dsy and night he had-
with the exception of a few minutes,
perfect liberty to go where he pleased,
and during this time the marshal was
with him nearly all the time. That he
died in the calaboose is also falsa, as he
was taken out, and as before stated
went where he pleased, during the en
tire day. That the calaboose was filthy
the next day, no one denies, as how un
der the circumstances could it be other
wise? A statement is going the rounds that
no man could live in this place. To
show how false this is, we have only
to call attention to the case of J. Hol
brook who was to reoaain in the place
three days, not long since. Some well
disposed man pitying him, sent him
dollar to pay for the hut day, which he
put iu his pocket, choosing to keep the
money and remained in the time out.
If there is any blame to rest upon any
one in this matter, it certainly is not up
on those who did their best to take care
of the unfortunate man, but to those in
Clyde who sold him the liquor to make
him drunk and who have been so very
anxious to place all blame in vhe matter
upon the authorities.
