Escapes From Mercy Hospital
and Whereabouts are
POLICE MAKE AHXIOUS SEAECH
Name is Harry R. Carter, of
Astoria, III., and a Man of
All last nihi 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 a3 an insane patient. He is
described as being short and slim,
about 40 years of tge and easily rec
ognized by a deformity of one leg.
causing him to walk on his too, so far
as that limb is concerned.
Carter is of greater general interest
than the average insane patient from
the fact that he is highly connected
and is a man of many accomplish
ments. He i3 a son-in-law of Judge
Miller, of Marengo, Iowa, and his
father is Dilworth Carter, a wealthy
wholesale merchant of Astoria. III.
He is aa artist of rare merit on the
pipe organ and guitar, and is extra
ordinarily' brilliant in conversation.

The story of hii mental deteriora
tion is a sad one. Htentimes he is
rational, but is likely at any time to
ixvome possessed of violent manias.
The Davenport Republican says:
'One of these insane desires since he
has been in the city is understood to
be to kill u prominent ladv, who has
known him and his family for some
time, and who. he fancies, has done
him a wrong. Carter was taken to

and wa3 placed under guard there.

aged to escape and made straight for
tbe resilience o! the lauy relerrea to.
But in the meantime the sheriff 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 vast as the latter was about
to cross the threshold. Carter was

PAT CROWE SHADOWED
The great interest centering in the
pursuit of Pat Crowe as one of the
supposed abductors of Eddie Cadahy at
Omaha 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(?)
finally notilied the police, bat 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
Rock Island than to other cities of
its class, but it is fully as much so.
The swinging sign seems to be more
of a habit than anything else, and it
has become a mistaken essential in the i
adornment of business fronts. Oae
merchant or professional man is no
more to blime than another for its
existence, and there is no reason why,
if one adopts this metnoa or caning
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 matter of public policy, be
strictly in force, and it is not the in
tention to bring the question under
the strict 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
In Some Instances Dangerous.
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 Rock
Irland 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 ijuefction.
One may contemplate the impres
sion that Second anil Third avenues,
and Eighteenth, Nineteenth and
Twentieth streets, would make if
there was none of these obstacles to
obstruct the view along the business
