DEATH AND DESTITUTION.
U retrh-d Condition or tttn Home nad
Family or 3Iai thins Slathtn In Iav
enpait . Under the glaring head-lines ot "Rock
Island's Refuse Maiuew Mathews and
bis Destitute Family," the Davenport
Timet of last tvenin? tells the following
A few days ago mention was made
through the press of the condition of the
destitute family at 121 Main street, and
chapter two ts varied and chucked full of
intensely interesting points. Matbew
Mathews is the name of a German who
for tome time kept a barber shop in the
room adjoinieg the efflce of the Rock Isl
and Union. About three weeks ago be
for some reason moved t J this city and
opened a barber shop at the above num
ber on Main street. Nothing unusual was
noticed of the neighbors until about one
week ago when it was learned that they
were in a deplorable condition and it was
also noted that the proprietor ot the shop
was constantly filled up with whisky.
One week ago yesterday Mrs. Mathews
was taken sick. Her condition indi
cated the . urgent need of a physician,
as she was nesring confinement. The
husband, who, it is said, has not
drawn a sober breath since he has been
in the town, was notified by the ailing
wife that a doctor was needed. He did
not go to get one, but claims that he sent
bis little boy, who is about 10 years old.
to a telephone to cull a physician; but if
he did the doctor did not get the suaf
mons, and consequently did not come.
At about 5 o'clock the mother was taken
violently sick and the child was born,
assisted, it is said, by only the wb'sky
soiiked Lu..ljand. The moth
er laid in filth from 4 Sunday until
some days later when a kind neighbor
learned of her awful condition ard ten
dered what asaittance was within her
power, but all week the lady roiled to
and fro in a bed ot filth, while her hus
band soaked himself in whisky. Benev
olent ladies gave ler limited attention.
Yesterday Mr. Mathews went down to the
river to go swimmiug, and while he was
there the baby took sick, went into con
vulsions and died, without the care of
a physician, and Dr. DeArmood says
that he has reason to believe that the
child died from neglect. It was not
caused necessarily from destitution as
the father could have prohibited it if be
bad only have lett whisky alone, and this
is a case for the grand jury to investigate.
A Times reporter called at the small,
diney, dirty apartment in company with
Offlcer Martens and later with Dr. De
Armond. The room is divided into a
front and rear room by a l.w partition.
In the front room is a filthy barber snr-p,
while the rear room Las' two curtains
drawn across either side, brbinil which
btbtids a bed, the floor U carpclles and
the room is devoid of furniture other than
sd fi cok stov?. a couple of chaira azd
some tin ware. At the foot of the mother's
bed was a basket in which layed lue baby
which was favored with a timely death,
and evidently escaped much trouble. A
cloth was spread over its fae sod flie9
swsruied aiound it. The count? buried
it. The father forces his little hoy out
on the street to shine 8hix and w hen he
does not briaij home as touch money as
the irrate parent thinks that he should,
thelsd is roughly handled.
The individual alluded to is undoubted
ly Matthias Math is, and while the location
of his residence during his brief sojourn
in this city is correct aa gven, Rjck
Island disclaims any interest in him. lie
is not a Rock Ii and outcast, but an Iowa
product through and through, an exile
no doubt, from the slate of prohibition
he sought refuge in Illinois remained
here until he found it more congenial
to return again to his native haunts.
W. O. Smith, of Illinois City, who has
iust constructed a kiln at Gilchrist for
turning out vitrified paying brick, was in
the city yesterday and exhibited at The
Abous office samples of the material which
hasbeen developed by his kiln. The brick
seemt to combine the best qualities of
Bardolph and Galesburg.and at the same
time to possess the hardness
and elasticity to peculiarly characteristic
pf the Rock Island paving brick. The
Gilchrist paving brica has a future, and
the city of Clinton, it is understood, pro
poses to be among the first to be identi
fied with its success.
