THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, SATURDAY, JULY 5, 190.
BRAW N AND BRAIN
A Combination Found in Cin
NOT "BOSSED" B POLITICIANS.
The Exceptionally .Fine Force of Guar

la the Chief City of Ohio Men Beyond
the Influence of Part lnan (hi p. """
Cincinnati laya claim to having one of
tbe finest police forces in the country. For
many years prior to 1885 it was the creat
ure and servant of the mayor, changed
throughout with every revolution of the
wheel of political fortune. In 18S5 a law
COL. DEITSCH AND CAFT. HAZES.
waa passed creatine a board of police com'
mlBSioners, but it was still a partisan or
ganization, Inasmuch as it was designed to
divert the mayor, who was of the opposite
party, of his authority over the force. At
last public sentiment grew so strong that
a new law was enacted. I ntlcr its terms,
the board consists of two Republicans and
two Democrats. It is appointed by the
governor, and is administrative with
quasi-judicial functions. The mayor is the
executive head of the force, and nominates
for appointment. The board confirms or
rejects, and to determine the availability
and efficiency of nominees has established
civil service system of examinations.
Another merit of the law is that it is so
framed as to make it impossible, unless
by an almost inconceivable collusion, for
the force to be the creature of the arbitrary
whim or personal or political bias of either
the mayor or the board.
The practical demonstration of the suc
cess of the guiding principle of the mayor
and the board is in the fact that com
plaints of police interference at elections
are now unheard of. A memorandum of
the politics of appointees was formerly
made, but that practice ceased about two
years ago. As far probably as can be ex
pected, the police force and the adminis
tration of the department are non partisan
In fact as well as in name. All power of
removal or suspension, alter trial, is abso
lute In the board, and all appointments
continual during good behavior, and re
movals cannot be made except for cause,
upon charges. This applies to tke super
intendent as well as to all subordinates.
Among the reforms incident to the with
drawal of the police force from the influ
nee of partisan politics has been a close
enforcement of the laws. One of the most
delicate questions with which the depart
ment has had to deal has been the Sunday
question, which shook the city from cen
ter to circumference for a long time. Yet
It has handled it with a dignified consider
ation for the feelings of those personally
concerned without sacrificing a jot of the
..... r .

Another notable reform achieved la the
enforcement of the law against gambling.
Before the existence of the present board
the gamblers practically controlled the
politicians of both parties, and kept "open
house" under all administrations by a lib
eral donation of earnings to the rival cam
paign funds, thus placing both parties
under obligation to them. This city was
then a favorite resort of gamblers, who
brought with them their usual attendance
. l experts i n lesser and greater crime. They
were a powerful adversary to contend with,
and to meet the emergency special power
was given the board as to gambling, so that
If by any chance a mayor should be elected
by that influence and fail to enforce the
law, the board could assume direct execu
tive control of the force for that purpose.
This Is the only qualification of the mayor's
executive authority over the force. The
. effect of this safeguard Is that gambling, as
a public institution, has been suppressed In
Tbe establishment of a house of deten
tion for females and minor prisoners is an
other valuable reform. The organization
of this branch is entirely original, the sys
tems of other cities being considered too
expensive. Next to maintaining the effi
ciency and discipline of the force, It Is the
moat practical reform made under the new
police regime. It Is the most practical so
lution In operation anywhere of this most
perplexing of polios problems the oaro of
female and minor prisoners. Heretofore
they were, upon armt, thrown promlnou
ously Into cells In the Central station,
whore they come in contact with the most
dissolute and depraved, though It may
bare been their own first offense. In this
particular the old system was a nursery of
crime. Now such persons are taken to the
nearest station house and held in the office
until the arrival of the "detention 'bus,"
In which they are taken to the house of
detention, where they are graded accord
ing to their criminal record and the nature
of their offense. The system has complete
ly revolutionized the treatment of women
and children while under police charge,
and has received compllmentarymention
by the National Police Reform association.
The house of detention is in charge of two
matrons, and In every part in as neat and
cleanly as woman's art can make it.
There is a police gymnasium in which
members of the force, patrolmen and offi
cers, are required to exercise every day. It
is one of the finest in the west. This Is un
der the personal supervision of the inspec
tor, and in addition to ordinary gymnastic
exercises there is regular military drill, the
force being divided into six companies of
forty-eight men each, with the addition of
-nn squad, all properly officered. Here
the men receive instruction in the
and ordinances that they are charged
enforcing, and there is special in-
traction astoTLrstlreatni'ent of Jhe
tims of accident. Promotions are alf on
merit of" civil service examinations with
probation as to practical executive ability.
Gold medals are awarded for excellence In
knowledge of police duties and of the law,
and there is a roll of honor for distinguish
ed bravery. f
The physical standard of the force Is
higher than that of the United States army.
The minimum height of JTnited States
army recruits Is 5 feet 7X inches. That of
the Cincinnati police force is 5 feet 9 inches,
and most of the men appointed are between
5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet J and of propor
tionate weight and development.
The superintendent or chief is Col. Phil
Deitsch, an old soldier, who served in the
regular army from 1857 to 1865, in the
Fourth United States infantry. He was
with Sheridan on the frontier and later
with Syken' division of the Army of the
Potomac, being wounded at the battle of
Gettysburg. He is a strict 'disciplinarian.
an organizer of superior ability, and the
commissioners have always found him
abreast of the most advanced notions as to
the discipline and morale of the force. He
is incorruptible and a persistent enemy of
corruption and crime and criminals of all
grades. A '
Inspector Hadley is a veteran police of
ficer, who has reached his present responsi
ble position from patrol by reason of his
merit and trustworthiness. Ho is as
thoroughly equipped in practical experi
ence as any police officer in the country.
ltiectiiel or detectives, lrry Hazen, is
known throughout the length and breadth
of the United States among the profession

crime, and during an interim of his separa
tion from the city force on account of par
tisan antagonism was intimately associ
ated with the Pinkertons.

The numerical strength of the force In
its respective grades is assigned to ten po
lice stations and nine police patrol stations.
covering and patrolling an area of twenty
five square miles. There are STi9 patrol
men, mounted and on foot, and the force,
including officers, is 477. The strict disci
pline to which patrolmen are subjected has
resulted in securing a superior body of
men, both physically and mentally, and
there is public confidence that the force
can be deinded on in any emergency that
may arise. It is the vigorous and intelli
gent co-operat ion of the patrolmen in the
enforcement of the law that has estab
lished the past reputation of the city for
peace and order and practical freedom from
gambling and r.sser crimes.
The police patrol system of Cincinnati is
the most eilloietit in the country. Several
new patrol houses have lutely been erect
ed that for perfection of appointments are
not excelled. This branch of the service is
under command of Lieut. Thomas A.
DulTy, a veteran police officer of excellent
executive ability. The equipment is nine
wagons, fifty-five men, a prison van, forty-
live horses, one hundred and seventy street
signal boxes and all the requisite parapher
Another feature of recent introduction is
the mounted police for suburban patrol.
There are Rt present twelve of these, but
arrangements are being perfected for the
enlargement of this important service.
The equipment is modeled after that of the
United States cavalry service, the saddle
being the regulation one of the army, and
the uniform and other equipments as near
ly corresponding as the conditions of the
police service will permit.
In addition to a system of reward for
perfect ion ;n manual and for distinguished
service there is a relief fund for the care of
officers disabled in the service, and of the
families of those who lose their lives in the
discharge of duty. The conditions are total
disability or fifteen years' Bervice, and an

accident in which her arm was broken.

Georgetown, the capital of Sussex county,

was quite common in "good old colony

save within the boundaries of what some
people facetiously call "the state of Bay

pilloried in the most central part of the
town, on the main street. The spectacle
had to be witnessed by pedestrians whether
they wore so disposed or not. , -

It would appear that Head Consul J.
C. Root and his followers deeiro a special
meeting of the head camp of Modern
Woodmen of America maybe to head off
the convention which is about to be held
in Rock Island. Circulars have been re
ceived by camps elsewhere, at king that
tbe camps vote on the advk ability of
holding a head camp meeting. Bat none
of these' circulars have been rsceived in
Moline or Rock Island. Roo; explains
that an emergency has arisen and the
laws nerd changing . The cam ps are not
asked to vote on the place or da .e of hold
ing the meeting, these details being left
to the executive council, and it Isn't
likely that any Illinois point would be
chosen.' Root also proposes that each
camp shall ' send a delegate to the pro

that the district representation scheme is
Keeerd of Jane Weather.
Mr. James R. Dodge, of Normal, has
kept a record of the thermometer's read
ing for twenty -eight years. This record
showsfthat Jane. 1870, beats tbe present
one in the way of high temperature. Tbe
last eight days in that month the ther
mometer registered at noon us follows:
96. ICO. 103, 102. 100. 98. 96 and 98. In
1873 there were fifteen daye that the
thermometer never went below 90 at
noon. The average in 1884 as 84. and
in 1887, 86. The lowest average was 76
in 1863. 1869, 1882 and 1885. Tbe rec
ord is an interesting study i.nd shows
that June, 1890, is not the ouly one that
has brought us hot weather.
A Severe Mpraln.
Miss Allie Rose, an instructor of vocal
music from Davenport, Thursday, met
with a painful accident at Black Hawk's
watch tower, where she and a few friends
were enjoying an outing. The wire
coaster is responsible for it. She had
taken one ride across the wire and was
starting, a second time, but she had
scarcely stepped from the platform ere
her hand slipped and she v. ent to the
ground, severely spraining her ankle and
being bruised somewhat besides. She
received professional attendance and was
taken borne in a carriage. While her in
jury is very painful; no serious conse
quences are feared.

Deafnait Can't be Cnrtd
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure desfoess.
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless tbe in
flummation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's

In all diseases of the nasal mucous
membrane the remedy used must be non
irritating. The medical profession has
been slow to learn this. Nothing satis
factory can be accomplished with douches,
snuffs, powders or syringes because they
are irritating, do not thoroughly reach
the affected surfaces and should be aban
doned as worse than failures. A multi
