Smallpox When Discharg

FACTS SHOW THE CONTRARY
Health Commissioner Mueller Says
3(an Could Xot Have Been in
M Present Condition.
A Galesburg paper takes exception
to the statement from the local au
thorities that the officials of Knox
county were negligent in letting It. A.
Devore, who is in the pesthouse here
suffering with the smallpox, out of cus
tody there, and after printing the story
from the papers here, has the follow
ing to say: ,
"Dr. Horrell, . the- commissioner ot
health, and Dr. Ripley Jointly had care
of the case. When it was established
thatj Devore had the smallpox the
.county furnished a tent and a cot and
bed clothing and the tent was put up
on the city lot in the west part of the
city, where there would be no danger
of the disease communicating. Then
an immune man was hunted up and
employed as a nurse and remained
with the patient until discharged.
"Dr. Horrell made four visits to the
patient and Dr. Ripley made even
more than that and they saw that he
had everything that would minister to
' his comfort.
Had No Complaint.
"Three dajB before he was dis
charged both of the doctors went to
the tent and made a careful and thor
ough diagnosis of the case and found
that the man was curea. They did not
. Immediately discharge him, but gave
orders to Health Officer Fred Giddings
to keep him three days longer and
then release him, which order was
tfaithfully carried out. Giddings from
the first was most attentive to the

case and daily made visits to the tent.
Before Devore left he said to the doc
tors that he had been given most ex
cellent care and that there was not a
thing of which he could complain.
Hence the surprise of the doctors
over the lies told away from her
about the case.
"Tha this man was well cared for
is shown by the several photographs
taken during the progress of the case,
and these are now in the hands of the
state board of health.
Receives Beat of Care.
"At the time of the final diagnosl3
and before Devore left the city when
it was ascertained that the cure was
complete, he was given a bath and
thoroughly disinfected and given new
clothes and underwear so that there
could proceed no infection. The in
fected cuticle had by that time peeled
off. There probably never was ?
smallpox patient here that was given
more conscientious care than was this
one. The doctors were very much
surprised at the stories told by De
vore and cannot comprehend his mo
tive. When he left he appeared to be
perfectly satisfied. The bedding was
all burned , and every means taken to
prevent the spread of the infection
Tlie opinion of the doctors Is that there
was not the least danger of infection
from this man and that unnecessary
alarm had been created by the stories
he has spread."
To Investigate Charge.
Dr. A. N. Mueller, commissioner 01
healtn, made the following statement
after reading the account in the Gales
burg paper: "I received a reply from
the state board of health this morning
and file writer said that the charge 1
had made would be looked into a
onca and I was thanked for having
reported the matter at once. In regard
to the statement of the Knox count
authorities that the man was cured
there must be some mistake.' When
Devore landed here Sunday he had pus
tular eruptions on his person such as
require from six to nine days to de
velop and as he had loft Galesburg
only five days before it seems Impossi
ble that he could have been discharged
as cured. The man is improving
steadily now, his fever having gone
down considerably, and evcryti;r?
points to a speedy recovery. I have
called several physicians into confer
ence with me and whatever fears 1
may have had as to my first diagnosis
of the case has been dispelled by

IL B. Hubbard. County Clerk, Rock
Island, 111. Dear Sir: In answer to
your inquiry in reference to the estab
lishment of a probate court in thi3
county, I beg leave to submit the fol
lowing: Section 216 oT the. act to es
tablish probate courts in all counties
having a population of 70.000 or more
provides that there shall be establish
ed in each county of tnis state now
created or organized and which may
be hereafter created or organized
which has a population of 70,000 or
more a court of record to be styled
'the probate court of Rock Island
county." It appears that the popula
tion of Rock Island county now ex
ceeds 70,000 and it also appears that
this act is mandatory. And when the
county has a poulation of 70,000 or
more the office Is by law established
and all that is necessary is to supply
same with the probate judge and clerk.

a word of gratitude addressed to our

At the 50th anniversary jubilee of
Augustana college the announcement
was made that the sum of $250,000
had been pledged for increasing the
endowment of the institution. It was
a source of deep gratitude, felt In the
hearts of all, that these plans had
so far been realized. The citizens In
Rock Island and Moline contributed
nobly and generously to the accom

we bring them, one and all, our hear

During the Jubilee celebration
great kindness and hospitality were
shown by our townsmen to the thous

the welcome and the reception ac

our cities the places of business were
decorated with flags and with the
college colors in honor of its 50th an

his hat with joy as he beheld these
