Louis Dillon of Green Bay, Wis., is
at St. Anthony's hospital in this city
in a precarious condition as the re
sult of an-overdose of cocaine which
he took last evening at S o'clock. The
police are of the opinion that he took
the drug with suicidal intent, al
though it seems that he is a drug
fiend and that he has been in a ser
ious condition for some days past. He
is suffering from delirium tremens at
present and is being held on a mitti
mus which sentences him to jail for
a period of 40 days on charges of hav
ing attempted to take his own. life.
Dillon was picked up on Eighteenth
street between First &nd Second ave
nues in a semi-conscious condition af
ter he had fallen to the sidewalk. He
was carried into the Senate saloon,
where he remained until the city am
bulance arrived and conveyed him to
the police station.
TIEI TO STRETCHER.
Dr. J. C. Souders was summoned
and he found Dillon in such an excited
6tate of mind that he had to be tied
to a stretcher, as there is no straight
jacket at the station. This morning
he was senenced to jail in order that
he might be properly taken care of
until such time as he is in his right
mind again. He was taken to the hos
pital at once.

I have the utmost pleasure in the
way my friends gave me victory at
the polls and I say now just as I
did before election that I will be
for the' city as I have always been.
It gave me much pleasure to see my
many old friends, some of them four

to cast their votes for me. I was
also particularly happy with the way
the younger generation rallied to
my support for I have always been
one of them. The boys with the

who caxue in for a great part of the
victory at the polls. It was not any

and all my friends paved the way to
election and It is to the whole city
that I extend my thanks to you.
