nunioer oi inmates during the vear,
including those on hand at the begin

4,400 were males. 2,844 females, and
those dischare-ed or ali.wnt !; rr

$16,019; eye and ear infirmary. $23,

that the different institutions are in
a most healthy condition, being care
fully and eSicfently administered and
with a saving to the state that will
have a handsome effect in the next
annual report of the board.
The various forms and changes
that were suggested by Gov. Altgeld
at the beginning of his executive
term have all been put into opera
tion and carried out with satisfac
tion and gratification to not only the
members of the different institutions,
boards and trustees, but to the ad
ministration as well. The present
work is making a decided impression
from a sanitary and business stand
point, and is much to be commended
for general efficiency.
The New Iuivrtor.
The president has nominated Capt.
George Winans to be supervising in
spector of steam vessels for the Fifth
district. Capt. Winans is a resident
of Waukesha, and was elected to the
assembly in 1888. He is 54 years
old and was born at Camanchc,
Iowa, which accounts for his being a
river man. He settled at Chippewa
Falls and lived there until 1875, when
he moved to Waukesha. He owns
the raft boats Dan Thayer and Sat
urn, with bow boats May Libby and
Satellite. It is understood that You
mans of Winona, is his backer, but
he has no partner. As he cannot
hold the office and be a vessel ewner
also, he will have to find a purchaser
for his property. It is believed the
appointment will be generally ac
ceptable to rivermen. La Crosse

The Effect of the Strike oa the Rock Island
There have been various mm nr.
afloat since the great srrike of last

of the irreat Rock Island rnnt.
meditating removing their Blue Isl
and shops to some interior point. It
is certainly true that Blue Island is
not a safe place. It is too near the

the assertion of thp Express some
months ago that alley Junction
was the location chosen by the Rock
Island officials for the centering of
all its machine shops and divisions
in Iowa. The late labor troubles in
Chicago have clearly demonstrated
the advisability of the earlv removal
of the shops. There has boon some
talk of moving these shops to either
Joliet or Rock Island, but now mat
ters have taken a turn and Vallev
Junction is looked upon with favor.
It seems more probable that when
the shops are moved they will come
to Rock Island, the great" road which
bears the city's name having shown
its feeling that Rock Island is an im
portant point in numerous wavs of
late and has given abundant indica
tions of its purpose to still further
add to its advantages hero as a great
division point. It is the most likely
plaen in the world for shops, being

THE BLACK DEATH IN CHINA.

"Black death, " that mystorions dis

Hons-Kong has been attacked by this
insidious aod fatal enemy, and already
hundreds have succumbed to it. The

deaths by the plague have already oc

The plague made its appearance in

of tho disease was most rapid. In a few

officials and buried at once "in a place
especially select -d.
When the disease was at its worst,
the deaths in the hospitals numbiTed
about 80 daily. In some cast s whole
families were exterminated iu a few
days. Europeans soem to bo almost
proof against the disease, although in
some cases their surroundings were tho
same as those of the Chinese. An excep
tion to this is the death of several Por
tuguese in Hong-Kong.
The cause of tbo strange malady is a
mystery, but it is nndonhtedjy a filth
disease. A physician who had large ex
perience with the blaek plague in Pak
hoi some years ago said in an interview
that it was due to foul smells. The
plague's symptoms, as descrilied already,
are as follows: With or without pre
monitory warning in tho shape of chill
there is a sudden tWcr rising to 105 de
grees or over. Then? is much headache
and cerebral disturliance, accompanied
by stuiHir. Iu from i g to 2 4 hours a glan
dular swelling occurs iu the neck, arm
pit or groin, rapidly enlarging to the
size of a fowl's egg. It is hard and ex
ceedingly tender. With or without a
decline of the fever tho patient sinks
deeper into a condition of coma and
dies usually at the end of 43 hours or
sooner. Ho declared that animals were
affected first, because tho germs were
near the ground.
Native reports from Canton say ,that
the epidemic is somewhat decreasing
there, but many new cases are still re
ported. It is said that fish are also
stricken, and fishermen in some dis
tricts have been forced to cease opera
