Rock Island, Jan. 18 Editor
Ahgl's: In ihe Cuicngo SLornicsg News
of Jin. 16 there appeared h long arlicle
UDder date of Davenport, Itwa, upon tbe
death and burinl of the late and highly
esteemed Dr. J. W.l'owden. charging thst
he had been buried alive, and the details
of which are toi horrible to reprint.
For the relief of the relatives and
many frienda of i)r Cowder I wish to say
thtt the whole article (t x.;ept that part
rcfmir.g to his death and burial) is a
tissue of falsehoods from brginniLK to
end, not e item of truth in it.
Dr. Owden Jied Feb. 4 ntd was burii d

tl:e grave ever beeu disturbed or inter
fired with in any way.
P. L. Mitchell Sec.
Chippiacock Cemetery Association.
The Anrs of Jan. 0 c nUined an ar
ticle alludintj to the prevalence of revolt
ing rumors to the effect as alleged above,
but in renptct to tbe fan.ily and friends
of Dr. Cowden no names were then men
tiontd. The Argus at tl at time stating
that such reports bud then been in exist
ence for come time ard that sevtral
weeks previous The Aim cs had made a
thorough invtEitigation found that ihey
were without the least foundation, had
traced them to the fouitain bead hnd
found that Ihty originated in a dream of
an aetd lady in tbe west part of the city.
The At uus in its article of Jan. 15 sta
ted that it had hoped the rumors would
die out before then, ai;d ouly at that
time did it make allusion to them in the
hopes they aiitht becbfc-Ved. l?ut it was
too la'.e. The busy an 1 irresponsible
tdUitue of Koss-ip hsd gotten bo il of them
and gloated in e preadii y them,

THE DEATH RECORD.
bsnlii :Pinkley, of Milan. Pasaes
From F.ai tk-The Lat aa Kites.
Daniel Pinkley, one of tbe oldest in,
habitants of the county, died at his home
in Milan yesterday at the advanced age of
93 years. He was born in Bradford
county. Pa., in 1799, and while yet a
joung man moved with his parents and
settled in Dayton. Ohio. Here he was
married to Miss Catherine Funk and the
couple came further west settling in
Brownsville, Ind , where they resided
until 1834 when they removed to New
Boston in Mercer county. While a resi
dent of the latter place he praciiced his
profession, that of medicine, and wes
also elected sheriff of the county, the
du'ies of which office compelled him to
move to Millertrbure, then, the county
eat, where he remained 12 years. He
removed to Camden Millg, now Milan, in
S' ptemhir 143, where his wife died in
1831. In MiUn he practice! medicine
and during his residence there was for
many years a justice of the peace. Five
children turyive him, tw of whom reside
in Iowa and three in Milan.
Mrs. Timothy Enright, whose death
occurred at Cordova on Saturday, was
bsrn in County Clare, Ireland, and came
to this country with ber parents at an
early age. They first lived at UapidsCity,
and from there removed to Davenport,
where she was married to Timothy En
iicht in 1S53. Fifteen children were
born to their union, 12 of whom survive
her. She was a kind, tender-hearted
woman whose gentle disposition had cn
deared her to all who knew her. The
remains were brought down to Moline
from Cordova on the Milwaukee train at
11 o'clock today, ane taken from there to
Dyenort, where the interment was
made in St. Marguerite's cemetery.

rumors to be Jrouncitts, tbey gnve spare J McCabe, E Mie Dower aad Eddie
to long ar.ieles under gUring and eensa
tinnal biadlir.es. Thus the abbunl re
ports reached the Chicio and Peoria
papers, and, tbe inJUnc.Lt denial on the
part of Mr. Mitchell was deemed justifia
ble. Now th nt the matter 1 ss gone as far as
it has. it may be in oni ;r to 6!hte the
adual facts as developed by The Akgps'
iuvetitiiratioti fully a nio tth aeo. A few
weeks after Dr. Cowden s death a lec
turer or. medical science stated ia this
city that in bis opinion a Rock Island
doctor bad been buried alive a few weeks
previous. The Hticoun crnent made an
iiripressioii on the miLd.t of some, acd
one woman in particular living in the
west ted of town c uld never get the
ida out of her beuti. Lite in November
last a relative of this lady died suddenly
of heart faMure whiic at'Out to undergo a
a surgical operaion. The appearance of
the woman &fter det'h was t.uch that
ber family believed ste was not dead acd
the day of the fLuerul physicians were
summoDed and an ,xanii nation made, the
result being that the woman was pro
nounced dead beyond a doubt. But the
incident revived in the mind of the wom
an who had heard the lecture last winter,
the assertion concerning the burial (f the
doctor hlivo, and a few sights after she
dreamt that a brother of the doctor had
come here from Omaha, had the doctor's
body exhumed at Chippiacock and found
that animation had returned after inter
nicut. She told tbe drjam tbe next day,
and Thk Ap.gcs was among the first to
hear tbe reports t gave rise to.
It at once made a quiet but
searching investigation, and the facts as
staled were developed Added to what
Mr. Mitchell states, Ji hn IIuss. the sex
ton at Cbippianock will make affidavit
that tbe grave- has not been disturbed,
and Undertakers Knox and Wheelan state
that no application v- as made to either
of them to disinter th; remains while the
recent publication of the horrible state
ments is the first the family of L'r. Cow
den hs.ve heard of them. Furthermore
the iate doctor has no brother in this

yarns had their origin in a dream .

miles. The locomotive was a Rigers,

many times greater than the public is
generally aware of.
Under the laws of Iowa all locomotives
in that state mu-t be equipped with pow

state must have made up in them a suffi
cient number of cars equipped with auto
matic or pwer brakes to enable the en
gineers to control them. After Jan. 1,
1895, all cars used in Iowa must be equip
ped with automatic couplers.
