Death from Alcoholism. Alter a
nisht spent amid the disgusting fil a
of his own barber shop, where he lay
on the floor partially dressed, without
covering and with only a coat for a
pillow, Reuben Lewis died yesterday of
heart failure caused by the excessive
use of intoxicating liquors. His shop
was on First avenue and Ninth street.
in East Moline, adjoining Fred Schlue
'er's butcher shop. Lewis had been ill
for two years, the greater part of which
had been spent in East Moline, and
most of his trouble can be traced di
rectly to his craving for drink. It is
said that he had eaten nothing since
last Tuesday, ami that when a barber
in his employ. Charles F. Farran, went
to the shop at H o'clock Sunday night,
Lewis bogged for drink. Farran says
he refused to give him anything and
asked Lewis if lie would not eat some
thing. The man said he would like
some raw oysters. Farran was unable
to secure them, so bought some soft
boiled eggs and a cup of coffee. These
were scarcely touched by Lewis. Far
ran built up a fire and kept the place
warm during the night, which he spent
in sitting up with Lewis. According
o the story which he told before a
jury which Coroner Eckhart summoned
yesterday forenoon, he left the shop
about 7 o'clock in the morning, and
when he returned a few minutes later
Lewis was sitting on a coal bucket.
When he asked Lewis how he was feel
ing, I-cwis gave a groan and pitched
forward. Dr. George F. Johnson was
summoned, and he responded to the
call. He examined the man add found
him dead. The cause, he affirmed, was
the excessive use of liquor, and this
finding the jury used in its verdict.
