Edward Mooney, who had been an
inmate of the county jail since last
Thursday, died early this morning'
from the effects of acute alcoholism.
At the inquest which was conducted
this morning at the Knox undertaking
rooms, the facts surrounding his
death were brought out, and it was
stated that Mooney was taken to the
county jail last Thursday on the
charge of disorderly conduct. He had
been drinking heavily and was in n
bad condition physically. Walter' Kit
tilsen, the turnkey at the jail, called
in the county physician, Dr. J. C. Sou-1-ers,
and the latter prescribed for the
man but saw that little could be done
for him, as he was in the last stages
of alcoholism. Both Friday night and
Saturday night, Mooney was in a rest

the turnkey and asked to have Mooney
removed in order that they might get
some sleep. This was done and Moon

He still required the attention of his
jailers during the greater part of the
night, however, and it was 1 o'clock
before he was left alone. When Wal

morning to arouse the prisoners, he
found Mooney dead. Dr. Souders and
