Escapes From Mercy Hospital
and Whereabouts are
POLICE MAKE ANXIOUS SEARCH
Name is Harry R. Carter, of
Astoria, III., and a Man of
All last night the police of the three
cities were looking for Harry Robin
son Carter, of Astoria, III., who has
escaped from Mercy hospital, Daven
port, where he was s.ent Christmas
eve as aa insane patient. He is
described as being short and slim,
about 40 years of cge and eas.ly rec
ognized by a deformity of one leg,
causing him to walk on his toe. so ix
as that limb is concerned.
Carter is of greater general interest
than the average insane patient from
the fact that he is higiily connected
and is a man of many accomplish
ments. He is a sou-iri-law of Judge
Miller, of Marengo. Iowa, and his
father is Dilsvorth Carter, a wealth'
wholesale merchant of Astoria. II!.
He is an artist of nire merit on the
pipe organ and guitar, and is extra
ordinarily brilliant in conversation.
Cafte a Sad One.
The story of his mental deteriora
tion is a sad one. ftentimes he is
rational, but is likely at any time to
Imvcmiic possessed of violent manias.
The Davenport Iiepub'.ican says:
' Oau of these insane desires since he
has been in the city is understood to
be to kill a prominent ladv, who has
known him and his family for some
time, and who. he fancies, has done
biiu a wrong. Carter was taken to
Mercv hospital iv SherilT McArthur
and was placed under guard there.
By some mean however, he man
aged to escape and made straight for
the residence of the lady referred to.
Iiut in the meantime the sheriiT had
been notilied of the escape and went
at once to the home of the ladv whose
life was supposed to be in danger.
He was none too soon, for he captured
his man just as the latter was about
to cross the threshold. Carter was
returned to Mercv hospital and es
Cme to Kock llaul.
The last trace that was had of Car
ter was wncn he was seen at the Iur-
Iiagton depot in fhis city, and it has
More been learned that he left this
. v on a train on that road, bound
PAT CROWE SHADOWED
The great interest centering in the
pursuit of Pat Crowe as one of the
supposed abductors of Eddie Cudahy at
Ooiaha has led to many amusing stories
getting abroad. One of these is to the
effect that a colored minister of this
city the other day drove about the
city of Davenport for three hours
shadowing a man who was driving
about in a red road wagon, under the
impression that he was the much de
sired criminal. The detective(?)
tinally notititd the police, but no
arrest was made.

The business streeets of the modern
city would present a much more at
tractive appearance if the swinging
sign was uniformly removed. This
suggestion is applicable no more to
Cock Island than to other cities of.
its class, but it is fully as much so.
The swinging sign seems to be more i
of a habit than anything else, and it '
has te2omea mistaken essential in the I
adornment of business fronts. One
merchant or professional man is no
more to blrue than another for its
existence, and there is no reason why,
if one adopts this method of calling
attention to his locatiou, another
should not do likewise.
A reform in this respect could
doubtless be accomplished by con
certed action and mutual agreement
on the part of the business men.
While there is an ordinance with ref
erence to this matter, it may not now,
as a maiter of public policy, be
strictly in force, and it is not the in
tention to briDg the question under
the sirict letter of the law. At
least this would not seem necessary
until t lie business men, or the ma
jority of them, agree among them
selves. Thereafter it would be time
to deal with violations of what
would le the spirit of common ac
cord. I'nder such circumstances an
amended ordinance to meet the emer
gencies of the situation might be in
I a Same Inntances O.tngeraaft.
The swinging sign not only mars
the appearance of the buildings facing
the business thoroughfares, but in
some instances it becomes an element
of danger, a f.ict that should also be
taken into consideration.
From the standpoint of public ap
pearances, if nothing else, all will
probably ?gree that the swinging
sign should go. Many of the Uock
Inland business houses have already
shown their coincidence with this
view of the matter. What do the
merchants as a whole think of it?
That is the nefction.
One may contemplate the impres
sion that .Second :id Third avenues,
and Eighteenth, Nineteenth anil
Twentieth streets, would make if
there was none of thes obstacles to
obstruct the view slung the business
