city ought to bring out a large crowd,
but the presence of Mr. Cullom last
night failed to arouse anything in the
way of enthusiasm more than any every
day stump speaker would do.

Davenport is going into the cleaning up
business with a vengeance, and is setting
a good example to Rock Island authori
ties in dealing with citizens who ignore
requests to comply with reasonable sani tary
regulations. The Rock Island health
department has given notice that there
must be special attention taken in regard
to cleaning up alleys, rear yards, etc, and
while a great many have promptly and
cheerfully complied with such regula
tions, there aro those who have not and
who must be dealt with in some such
means as they handle such cases in Dav
enport. Thus says the Democrat:
Dr. Cantwell and Health Officer Hin
richsen are kept busy these days making
people clean up. Yesterday morning
Officer Hinrichsen had 23 complaints of
nuisances and started out to serve notice
on parties that they must abate them at
once. While he was thus engaged a num
ber of cases the complaints were brought
in and duly filed for action today.
In a great number of cases
the complaints are of defective
plumbing and bad cellars- The health
department is doing all in its power to
put the business part of the city in a
thoroughly clean condition before begin
ning on the hill. The greatest
danger lies in the business part
of the town, because of its
denser population. There are innum
erable places throughout the city where
there are bad water closets, which need
immediate attention, but the depart
ment cannot do all things at once. But
it is certainly doing a good work just
Dr. Cantwell states that in most cases
people abate nuisances as soon as noti
fied, but there are a few who pay no at
tention to notices, and other means must
necessarily be employed. 1'he better
way would be for all who know there
is a nuisance on their premises to abte
it and thus avoid having to be com
pelled to do it by the authorities. There
is little danger of Davenport being af
fl cted with cholera this year, but there
are many other diseases which good
cleaning may keep down, among which
might be mentioned diphtheria and ty phoid

Untimely Taking Off of a Promising;

Charles S. Case, son of Supervisor
Henrv Case, died at his home in South
Rock Island at 3:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, after a 3-week i' illness
with typhoid fever and pneumonia, aged
nearly 24 years. Deceased was born in
this city and grew up here, attending
the High school, after which he was a
student at Kemper Hall in Davenport.
He began his business career several
years ago with the wholesale hardware
firm of Stewart & Montgomery, and
later was clerk on the steamer Still
water. From this he went into the
office of the Rock Island Lumber Co.,
where he was employed when taken sick.
He was a young man of much prom
ise, being possessed of more than ordi
nary business qualifications in addition
to which his exemplary habits bad won
for him many friends who will sympa
thize with the family in their bereave
ment. The circumstances of the young man's
untimely demise are made particularly
sad owing to the fact that his death fol
lowed so closely upon that of his mother
only a few weeks ago.
The sickness which has caused such a
series of afflictions in Mr. Case's family,
five in the family having been attacked
by typhoid fever, is thought to have been
