HE TRIED TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE.
Tray. Crump Fires Two Bullets Into
Despondency lied Him to th« Rash
Act—Alive, But th» Result
Yesterday morning Travia T. Crump,
who Is wen known in this city and was
formerly a member of the police force,
shot himself at his residence, 414 N
street, Inflicting what may prove to be a
fatal wound. He was employed as a
baa-keeper In Blauth's saloon, on X
street. He went home after his watch
was over in the morning and retired,
telling his wife to call him at a certain
About 9:30 o'clock the family was
Btartled by hearing two shots, and, on
going to the room, found that he had
shot himself in the head twice, while ly
ing in his bed. He was still living,
Medical assistance was at once sum
moned, and it was found that the first
ball had struck his head above the
right ear, and glanced backward and was
imbedded on the outside of the skull,
under the flesh.
The second ball had entered the skull
back of the ear, and its location has not
yet been determined. That the brain is
Injured is evidenced by the fact that it
took three men to hold Crump while an
examination was made and the wound
attended to. He remained unconscious
throughout the day, but regained con
sciousness near evening and was resting
quietly at last accounts.
Crump had been out of employment
for some time, until lately, and had
been despondent. For the last week he
had been troubled with nervousness
end sleeplessness, and had been morose
and low-spirited. His wife had evi
dently feared that he might do himself
harm, for she begged him Saturday to
leave his revolver at home, but he re
fused to do so.
At present it is impossible to predict
the outcome of his rash act, the position
of the ball and the injury to the brain
The "Butf-Plnehors" Hold One of
Their Characteristic Gatherings.
The rollicking social club known as
the "Bug Pinchers" held their fourth
annual high jinks at their club-rooms,
OIM J street, on Saturday night, where
for several hours music, mirth and
frood-fellowship prevailed. After the
election of officers President George W.
Ficks read his annual address, which
was a gem in its way and provoked
frequent and hearty applause.
Then all partook of refreshments,
and it required the combined efforts of
the "Grand High Bounc«r" and hia as
sistants to restrain the "bugs" from
foundering themselves and to keep
their hilarity within reasonable bounds.
Quiet was finally restored, after fines
had been imposed on nearly all of them,
and th« following programme was ren
Song, male quartet; piano solo, Luke
Baumgarten; recitation, Charles Gor
man; "The Old Cremona," Mr. Appleby;
bass solo, C. M. Phinney; 'cello solo,
Frank Griffin; tennr solo, M. J. Des
mond; song, Harry Treichler; selec
tion, male quartet; song, Eugene Elkus;
solo, Walter Longbottom.
Professor Appleby artistically ren
dered a few selections on the banjo,
and Camile Japonica gave some skirt
dances. He wore a lovely white cos
tume, and it was with difficulty that the
whole crowd was restrained from join
ing in the da*nce. Before Bug Pincher
Smith's excitement could be subdued
he had to be fined $4.
Captain Prindle of Woodland was
called upon to respond to the conun
drum, "Shall America Eat Crow?" He
handled the subject without gloves, and
convinced all present that he is a true
Messrs. Hallett and Eldridge of the
Clunle Opera-house Company told
some good stories, and then Dr. C. B.
Nichols entertained the audience with
a little war talk. Before he had con
cluded his remarks the entire gang had
registered an oath that they would go
tv the front If war should be declared.
The seance concluded by all joining
in singing, and three rousing cheers
were given for the club. Then the Pres
ident warned every member to go
straight home and not linger by the
vayslde. They lingered just the same.

THE FRUIT-AUCTION QUESTION.
What a Sacramentan Learned About
It at Chicago.
He Thinks There Should be One Open
Auction There and in New York
John A. Gill, General Agent for the
Fruit-Growers' Express, Armour &
Co.'s Refrigerator Line, returned home
yesterday after a few weeks' sojourn in
While his trip was intended for one of
pleasure, he did not neglect to look over
the ground in Chicago concerning the
marketing of decidu■hip fruits, as it is a
well-known fact that some friction ex
isted last season betwen the shippers at
this end and the receivers at the other
end, which resulted in the establish
ment of a rival auction-house —a result
not at all in accordance with the wishes
of the California growers, and which
most of them believed to be in opposi
tion to their interests. As the result of
his observations, in conversation with
a "Record-Union" reporter he made the
following statements which will be of
much interest to growers.
"What is needed," said he, "and
should be supported by the fruit-grow
ers, is a single open auction-house in
each Eastern city, and the only way to
secure i-t in Chicago is by a general and
thorough understanding between the
growers and shippers.
"Let us say to Chicago buyers: 'Our
fruit will be sold at a certain place, and
all buyers are welcome.' In this way
the fruit should bring good prices, and
no friction will be caused by having
two or three auction-houses. The next
question is how to arrange for the auc
tion-house. I find that there are about
three convenient places to choose from.
"Take that at the Illinois Central
Depot, which was operated last season
by the Merchants' Fruit Auction Com
pany, the one which seceded from the
original auction-room because the re
tailers as well as wholesalers were al
lowed to bid. The location is good, but
who can stand the arbitrary charge made
by the company for switching the cars to
this point of $10 to $13 per car. The de
livering road cannot afford to concede
that amount from its Missouri River
haul, and I hardly think the growers
care to incur any additionl expense to
their regular freight charges and re
frigerator rates from California points.
"The Northwestern has also a good
location, but I understand they demand
delivery to them at the Missouri River,
and will not switch to their depot fruit
that may arrive by competing lines—at
least they show no disposition to do it—
and if cars were delivered to them in
Chicago, to be placed in their auction
hcuse it would be a question of getting
them there, as Chicago is not a very
easy place to get around in, and a great
many objections would prove this
scheme to be impossible.
"Now, we all know that it is to our
interest, as well as that of the buyers,
to have the fruit sold at a convenient
point to South Market-street dealers.
We will then consider the Milwaukee
depot, which was used in former
years by the Earl Fruit Company as
an auction-house. It looks to me as if
all difficulties could be removed by
using this place, which seems to have
ample facilities and a good location.
The situation in Chicago is certainly
one that should be thoroughly consid
ered and investigated before the sea
son of 18W> opens. A place should be
selected which would prove agreeable
to the trade in Chicago as well as to the
interests of fruit-growers here.
"It would possibly pay the latter well
to select one of'their number in whose
judgment and integrity they have full
confidence, and send him on there to
investigate and report.
"I understand there is a movement in
New York to select the place for an
open auction on neutral ground for the
connecting lines from Chicago to New-
York, to place the fruit on the piers for
inspection and then have a sale for the
fruit as per catalogue at the auction
room. This place would probably be
about half-way between the two piers.
"If, as has been stated, the New York
contest of two auction-houses last sea
son was due to a contest between auc
tioneers, let new blood be selected and
only one auction held. There is cer
tainly a remedy in matters that are not
agreeable or profitable to our fruit
growers, who desire only one open auc
tion-room in each city. The shippers
and receivers should not show their
hands by blocking in any way the
road to progress, and it is to be hoped
that the matter may be amicably ad
justed. As it was last season, it was
hoped at first that the competition of
the two auction-rooms would not hurt
the sales of fruit.
"This hopo proved fallacious, as dif
-6 n Hi members of the same firm would
an-nd the two places, and, by man
euvering, manage to break down the
prices received by telling bidders that
fruit was selling for-a less price at the
other place, aad after they had gone
away to buy there, bidding the fruit in
themselves at a low price for want of
"During my visit I was much inter
ested in inspecting the workings of
Armour & Co.'s great packing industry.
I found that 15,000 employes were on the
pay-roll. About .">i'O men are in the car

"I am glad I made the trip, as it gives
me a better chance to appreciate our
great climate. Just think of ten days'
rain, snow and sleet there, when in
three days I could reach California,
where we have sunshine and balmy at
mosphere. We must offer some induce
ment to people to come here. Of course
climate is a consideration, providing a
bank account goes with it, but the man
of moderate means, who depends on
his daily labors, must be taken care Of,
and that can only be accomplished by
active men with financial backing to
inaugurate means of keeping the people
employed. There is a great field in Sac
ramento for enterprise, and I know the
money question is assured, providing,
ot oourse, that capital can be guaran
teed a small margin for its investment.
"I would like to see Sacramento get
into the swim, as Los Angeles has done.
I believe our railroad facilities are
equally good and besides we have our
navigable rivers, vrhii-h gives us access
to ail the world. I think the Southern
Pacific Company has shown good feel
ing toward Sacramento, giving: the
merchants the benefit of the lowest
rates and placing them a day earlier
in shipping to Nevada and other places
East and North. What m«re does Sac
ramento want than to be placed on an
equal footing with San Francisco, Loa
Angeles and other terminal points?
"I think the cost of doing business in
Sacramento is much less than at other
terminals. Local rates favor Sacra
mento. In fact, we are holding an
enviable position and why should we
not make our onward march and reach
out and grasp the business of the in
terior, as well as that of the country
east and north of us? We have a long
list of merchants that have made their
fortunes in Sacramento and they are
the ones that should grasp the situa
tion and apply the proper remedies."

A COLD WEATHER' LIAR.
The Man With Yellow Whiskers Re
counts Ills Experiences.
"Speakin' about cold weather," said
the man with the yaller whiskers, as he
caressed them in a loving way, "but
unless some of you have been up to
Hudson's Bay in January you don't
begin to know what cold is."
"How cold did you ever see it up
there?" inquired the Buffalo drum
mer in an absent way.
"How cold? Well, the coldest day
they ever had or ever will have up there
was the 14th of January, 1874. At 8
o'clock in the morning the thermom
eter stood at 80 degrees below zero.
That was simply the beginning of a cold
day. The village in which I was stop
ping numbered about 700 people. Over
fifty had frozen to death by 1) o'clock.
Cows, horses, hogs, and dogs tumbled
over as if shot. Trees four feet thick
were riven as if struck by lightning."
"And it got colder yet, did It?" asked
the man whose eyebrows were singed
off in the Boston fire, and never grew
"It did. At high noon it was 120 de
grees below zero. The thermometers
all froze up at that, but no one doubted
that it went to 130 below. Between
morning and night over (»00 people per
ished, and not a bird or beast escaped
death. The cold of that day froze ice
forty-six feet thick on the bay. The
outside air was like a bullet."
"But you escaped, of course?"
queried the drummer, as his face took
on a tired look.
"I escaped, of course," replied the yal
ler-whiskered man, "and I was the only
human being who got off scot free. It
was a great stroke of luck. I had gone
up there to sell a shipment of one hun
dred coal stoves and open a coal yard.
I had forty of the stoves set up in a
hall to show them off, and I built a
fire in' each one of them. By standing
in the midst of the forty stoves I es
caped the cold, though I had goose
pimples for a week afterward. Gra
cious, but didn't I burn a lot of coal that
"Yes, one hundred tons, probably!"
sneered the eyebrow man.
"You are just a half ton over the
mark, and that coal was worth $8 a
ton. Yes, and I melted thirteen stoves
worth $32 apiece, and used up $796
worth of coal, and then had to stay up
there ninety days to help bury the dead.
Cold weather! Well, you don't know
what you are talking about!"— Detroit
The Moon and Stammering.
"Nature" publishes from a corre
spondent a curious fact which it
vouches for. The correspondent says:
"It was accidentally observed by a
stammering friend of mine, during the
months of May and June last, that on
moonlight nights he stammered more
than on dark nights, and when
he slept exposed to the rays
of the moon during the month
of June he found that he stam
mered the most on days succeeding full
moons, while a day just after the new
moon, and a day before, he had not a
single attack of the fit."
" I had varicocele, weakness,
pains in my back, and was going
into the stages of general nervous
debility; all my troubles dating
back to 1869. I looked every
where for help, and finally got it
from Dr. Sandem's Electric Belt.
In a week after I applied it the
pains m re gone, and in two
mouths the varicocele seemed to
go like magic. I quickly recov
ered my strength, and am, to-day,
at 49, as strong and healthy as
any man of my age. I wid do all
I can to induce other sufferers to
use Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt."
