Oa July 5 Charles Wallace, son of W.
W. Wallace, of Davenport, died sud
denly after a short illness, from heart
disease. Two hours before tbe child
died Dr. A. W. Bowman was called in,
and he having learned that the patient
bad been vomiting all night, prescribed
three alterative powders. Before be had
called again the child died. The father
at once entered a complaint against Dr.
Bowman to the effect that he had been
guilty of malpractice, but afterwards
withdrew the charge. Tbe doctor, how
ever, whose professional reputation had
been thus assailed, demanded the fullest
investigation. Acting Coroner Eagal
thereupon commissioned Drs. Middleton
and Cantwell. together with Chemist
Nadler, to make an expert and scientific
elimination of the body, then at Pine
Hill cemetery. After this had been done
a coroner's jury was empaneled, and yes
terday the evidence of the father of the
child, of Dr. Bowman, of Drs. Middleton
and Cantwell. the latter relating the
results of the autopsy, which were that
death was caused by heart disease; the
evidence of Chemist Nadler including bis
report of the chemical analysis which
was practically the same as the notes of
the antopsy, was all taken,
and after hearing which, the
coroner's iury returned a verdict that,
"after having heard the evidence, we do
find that tbe deceased came to his dealb
by heart disease and not caused by any
medicine administered by Dr. A. W.
Dr. Bowman is a Hock Island county
boy, and U a son of Dr. E. II. Bowman
of Andalusia, where be was raised. His
complete vindication of so grave a
charge for when a doctor's professional
standing is attacked his all is attacked
will be gratifying to all his taenia here,
and the lesson to to drawn from the out
come is that allegations of so serious
a nature should not be made until there
is a least a reasonable certainty that they
can be proven.

If the organization isn't any more
liberal than tbe attendance was at tbe
meeting la6t night, the Liberal Repub

among the misguided. When the time
came for calling the meeting to order
there was no one in the ball, several of

At last Big Chief Wilcox remarked that
"maybe we better go inside and Bee if
they won't follow." Little CLie' George
Perry wanted to get a band and drum up
a crowd, but tbe high council couldn't
see it that way, and the few who had
gathered to take part in tbe ghost dance
filed into the hall. Medicine Man Thomas
called tbe meeting to order and Young
Man-Not-Afraid-of-II is- Whiskers Conant
did the work of a secretary. The work
of getting permanently organized was
done almost before several of tbe pro
spective members had -.caught the drift
of the order of business. The empty
honor of president was bestowed on F.
C. Denkmann, while W. H. Conant was
similarly honored by being given the
secretaryship, and C. F. Lynde was
cliosen as treasurer. All this and more
was done by one vote, the following
being chosen as vice president from the
F.rst ward, W. T. Gahagen; Second,
Henry Carse; Third, William Rinck;
Fourth, Charles Hansgen; Fifth, M. J.

Ask a lady whether she will take some
ice cream, aud nine times out of ti-n she
will answer no, and at the same time nn:m
yes. Ask another if she will have some
thing to eat, and she'll reply that she isn't
hungry. Xo lady will admit that she is
hungry. Indeed, it would he dangerous
to be in the vicinage of a hungry woman.
