In many respects, however, the life of
Mr. Davenport did not fill the measure
of bia opportunities. There waa an
Incongruity in bis character tbat seemed
to bold hlin bark. He looked t"0
closely after bia own affaire and lived
In comparative seclusion. Ha did
not come in contact with men of
affairs sufficiently to rnnve the
crudenesa and habits of pinneerism.
He evidently failrd to fully com
prehend the evolution of the times. His
Ideas were distinctively bia own, and it
waa almost Impossible to change bis opln
Ions when onre formed. But notwith
standing these and other alight defects.
Bailey Davenport was a remsrkable man

friend of the poor, and it ia sincerely to
be recretted tbat his later life bad not
contained more geniality and warmth.

In thia city la abnormally high, owing to the
unaaaaonable weather and la grippe, al
though the latter epidemic haa not taken
hold here like it did in the eaat Up to
Thursday night seven deaths had been re

Moat of the deaths, however, are the reault
of pulmonary diaeaaea. In from these

Health Cominiiionar Wickersham said
yesterday that from repnrta furubtbed him
he believed the diaeam to be growing in ex
tent if not In intensity. There waa no quar
ter of the city where numerous cases could
not be found He believed that the epidemic
waa essentially the same as that which was
reported in the eastern citiea, and utiles
there was a radical change in the weather
shortly he expected to see some of the same

ly debilitated, and persona who, after being
i tacked by tbe disease, eitber neglected to
rare for themselves in the first stagea or ex-
prwed themselves too soon after reaching
convalcNence, and thereby suffered a relapse.
He thought that physicians here as a rule
were fully alive to tbe gravity of the situa

its dangers, but he did not look to see any
marked or general improvement until we

The Old School Remedies.
Physicians in all sections of the city re
ported a slight increase in the numlwr of
cases. Medical men of the old school still
rely largely on antipyrine and quinine, and
find them eillcacious In the different stages
of the disease. The latter has been generally
adopted both as a preventive and cure by
people who doctor themselves. Ita sale by
the druggist holds up to the large propor
tions reached early in the month, and much

Its sale has extended largely beyond the
drug stores, and in many of the saloons the
quinine bottle occupies as permanent a po

story of the "sixteen men who took sugar in

to the amount to lie used. The wide-

tbe customer measures his own dose and
downs it as effectually as possible, but there
la no heartineaa in hia "here's looking at
you, aud the grimace that follows ita tak
ing off has no appearance of conviviality.
The homeopathista have the call on the
palatable neas of their remedies for the dis
ease, and report good success in their use.
One doctor said be found atropine serviceav
ble in reducing the aching pains that usually
accomtianied attacks, and that aconite acted
promptly in reducing the fever. He used
quinine in addition, more or leap, prescribing
it In two-grain doses night and morning.
Another had found belladonna with arseni-
cum of much value, and used bryonia with
good effect in some phases of the disease. He
said he had found three pretty distinct types
of the diaease in hia practice one the cough
ing and sneezing type, another the ca.
marked by pronounced fever, and tbe third
the cases where the stomach and bowels were
attacked and nausea with purging and vom
iting followed. It waa in tbe latter class of
cases that he found bryonia most valuable.
Where It Prevails Most.
A marked feature of the disease is ita prev
alence among the people exposed to the
weather. A considerable proportion of the
regular street car driver and conductors
and grip-line men are laid up with it, and
their places are filled with extra men anil
substitutes. The same report is made con
earning the teamsters and cabmen. Officer
Martin Timm, of South Chicago, died lout
evening from the effects of la grippe. He
was taken sick while on duty Tuesday night
and bail to go to hia home. Pneumonia set
in Thursday and he failed rapidly.
PANIC ON THE STREET.
A Holler In the Heart of the City Hursts
Several People Hart.
HiJAiM, uan. j i. a lerriuc boiler ex
plosion occurred shortly after 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in the basement of the
John Morris Stationery and Printing com
pany, lit to I'M Monroe street, causing fJO.
U0U damage, but no loss of life, though
several of the small army of employes were
seriously and many slightly hurt Tbe en
tire front of the buildings, as pertains to
glass and doorways, was blown like chopped
straw into the street. Great pieces of heavy
plate glass were strewn for half a block
around. Ho great was the force of the ex
plosion that pieces of glan were stuck into
the woodwork of building across tbe street.
A part of three Moors in the rear of the
Morris building were torn up and splinterei
as though by a cyclone.
Names of the Injured.
The cause of the explosion ia not definitely
known. Tbe following ia a list of tbe most
seriously injured : Charles Wilson, engineer,
badly cut about the face and bead, hands
badly scalded, but not thought to be si
oualy hurt; Mias Harrall, cut about face and
bead ; V J. Hartman, Herman Hwanson and
J. IL Smith, badly cut by flying gli
(Jeorge Burgees, teamster, blown acrosa the
street into an open doorway, receiving bad
wound In tbe head, seriously hurt, but not
thought fatally so.
Might Have Been Much Worse.
Altogether fourteen persons were injured,
moat of them slightly. Tbe escape of others
is somewhat miraculous, Tbe building ia
situated on a street that ia crowded all day
with people, and the panic when the glasa
began flying would have been amusing
If tbe peril bad not been so great. Tbe con
cussion was terrific, aud the plate glasa in
many windows aloug lite street waa broken.
Inside the building everything was upside
down, while the rush of the employes to get
out was a regular stampede.

Cronla prisoners, filed with the deputy clerk

Upper Alton has a separate municipal gov

Created a Blaek Hint Hot.
Recently the board redistricted the town.
It was easy without doing violence to geome
try to create a Mack district, ana this was
done. The negroes were provided with th
best class of teachers, but they were not
satisfied. Finally they instituted mandamu
proceedings to compel the board to redistrict
me lown on wnat was termed a more
"equitable" basts. Pending the decision of
this cose, a few negro families came into the
high school district with the avowed object
of sending their children to the high school
building. This precipitated the first trouble.
The War Breaks Ont.
Thursday morning a score of colored cbil
dren appeared at the high school, accom
panied by their parents. They demanded ad
mission, and Superintendent Powell admit
ted the children. Then came war. The
white pupils, many of th m girls, rebelled,
and began picking up their books and gum
and making other preparations to leave. The
white boys also got mad. They waited until
the mature darkies had dfjiarted, and then
they fell on the block inmates, and for ten
minutes slates, books, rulers and wool were
flying in the air. Superior intelligence waf
effective in the end, and, although "the col
ored troops fought nobly," they were forced
to fly. They were slugged in the yard and
chased down tbe Ktre t, and tbe whites re
turned in triumph, and received the thanks
of the girls.
Had to Read the Riot Act.
This riot caused intense excitement At
o'clock yesterday morning the negroes and
their children assembled at the school set
apart for them. There were fully thirty ne
groes and thev marched in a body to the
high school. The whites heard of the con
templated raid on the high school and some
twenty white men hurried to the high
school prepared to resist the attack of the
negroes. Rumors of a probable riot reached
tbe ears of the city marshal, and he collected
a posse and reached the ground just as the
whites ami blacks were preparing to slaugh
ter one another. He read the riot act siud
commanded the belligerents to keep the
peace. The whites swore by all that was
holy that they would die in their tracks be
fore the negroes should take charge of the
high school. The blacks seemed equally de-,
termined to enter, but after arresting tbe
leaders the marshal induced the blacks to
withdraw. The negroes were searched, and
some were found to lie armed with revolvers.
Two white men were arrested, and they
were also found to lie armed.
The "Wildest Kxrlteuient" Loose.
1 he retreat of the negroes was hailed as a
victory by the whites, but it was shortlived.
The Is ard of education held a meeting last
night aud decided to have one mixed pri
mary school. New tiotiudaries were drawn
in order to allow negro children in the high
school When the action of the board was
made known it produced the wildest excite
ment, and the niemliers were abused in tbe
most violent terms. They defended them
selves by saying that they hod taken legal
advice, and thought it was a necessity. The
whites will take their chddren from the
mixed schools, and threaten to default on all
The Law In the Case.
So. .n after the adoption of the constitution
of ltSTl) the Illinois supreme court decided in
a number of cases coming before it that col
ored children wore entitled under the or
ganic laws to attend the same schools as the
whites, and could not be excluded therefrom
on account of color. However, for a num
ber of years the court has given very wide
latitude to school boards in this matter, but
in a cose decided lust year the result favored
the negroes. If the mandamus suit is won
here the trouble will be serious, for the ne
groes are not more determined to get in than
the whites are determined to keep them out
