Its Death Kerard Last Year aa Caaa
aared Wlta Tkat at Other
In the press dispatches appearing in
last night's Abgtts was a statistical exhi
bit of the death rate of the 22 principal
cities of the country, as compiled by the
marine hospital bureau at Washington.
The figures presented were based upon
the returns of the year 1890, and showing
the death rate per 1,000 inhabitants in
each of the cities during the year. In
the entire list onlj two cities made a bet
ter showing than Rock Island. These
were San JJiego, Cal., and Pensacola,
Fla., the Tomer being three thousand
people larger and the latter a thousand
population smaller than our own city.
Rock Island's death-rate was placed
at 14.4 per 1,000 people, while that
of Ban Diego and Pessacola was 10.6
each. Charleston, N. C, was shown to
be the most unhealthy city in the Union
with an annual death rate per 1,000 of
32.4. while New Orleans, Richmond, Va ,
New York, Chicago, St. Louis, and other
cities followed in order, with slightly
"Rock Island's showing is exceedingly
gratifying," said Health Commissioner
Ejster this morning, and mind you, the
census report upon which these figures
are based places Kock Island's population
at only 13,596, which is as you know,
3,500 to 4,000 short of our actual popu
lation. So that you will eee that our
death rate is in truth as low as that of
any city in the country. Indeed, I ven
ture the assertion that if a showing for
10 years were made of Rock Island, it
would place the death rate not over 10. to
every thousand, per annam.
"You must take into considera
tion, too, that we had a good deal
of sickness last year not any more per
haps than other cities, especially those
those round about us, but we encounter
ed a malignant epidemic of diphtheria
and aso had our share of that unwelcome
Russian importation more commonlv
known as the La Grippe. So, all things
considered, I think Rock Island fared
The doctor might haae gone further and
said that Rjck Island was the healthiest
city in the country, but he was apparent

withstanding that it would have been

HERE'S A PRETTY MESS.
A Qaeer Ctae- mt Oemestte lafelielty
Joel Haskins, a Davenport horseman,
has been finod $50 for abusing his mother-in-law,
and inhuman treatment of his
wife and family. Mrs. Haskins, it seems,
is the mother of a babe but a few days
of age, and t.be family is poor. A kind
hearted neighbor gave the man a half
dollar to buy some needed medicine for
the sick woman Friday night, bat instead
of making that use of it he devoted it to
the acquires ent of an unnecessary bev
erage. Thin he brought home with him,
and proceeded to make the house too hot
to hold the firmly . He spilled the food
prepared for the supper of his wife.cursed
her and her taother,and made threats of
dire intent. He was finally ejected from
the house and the patrol wagon subse
quently conveyed him to the station.
The family presents some curious
phases of domestic life. Some time 'ago
Haskins manned a widow; a woman with
a grown son and daughter. Subsequent
ly tbey were divorced, and later he mar
ried the woman s daughter. She it is
who is ill dot', and for whom the medi
cine was to have been brought home, and
ber brother it was who summoned the
officers. When he was asked at the sta
tion, what rel ition the prisoner was to
him, he repliel, that last year Haskins
was his father, but that this year he is his
brother. It is understood that the family
ib wretchedly poor, and that its members
are in the greatest need of all that can be
earned by its Lead.
