Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock
John Jacob Wcik walked into a yard
standing back from Alapai street,
and just maukii of King street,
belonging to Mr. II. I'aiker. In the
yawl was a small house of two rooms.
He entered the house and taking a
revolver which he cariied, shot him
.elf through the centre of the fore
head about one inch above the
oyebrows. Death was instantaneous.
A little later three Ilawaiians came
down to work in the yatd, and one
of them going to the house saw the
body lying and retreated. The other
then went in and saw it. After this
one of them went to Mr. I'aiker,
and told him, and then went and
gave the alarm at the Police Station.
By this time it was about 9 a.m.
An inquest was held yesterday
before Mr. Dayton into the facts of
the case from which we glean the
Deceased left here in the D. C.
Murray in May last with his wife
and son for a trip to the const. A
couple of days out, his wife dis
appeared during the night and it is
supposed that she fell over-board
while in a lit. This preyed on
deceased's mind and he couldn't stay
in San Fiancisco, so he and his son
returned on the mail steamer. Since
then he had not returned to his trade
as shoemaker, although he apparently
intended to do so fiom his state
ments and actions. He constantly
brooded over his wife's decease, and
many a night was heard calling her
by name and in the morning would
say he had seen her, and that she
bad kissed him and asked him why
he did not come. He had been 17
years married and they were very
fond of each other. He was staying
with his wifeVslBter Mrs. Strchl on
King stteet, arid she seeing his state
of mind had taken away his revolver
and other articles. He was about
U years of age, and a native of
Ilartmanswciler,' Waiblingen, Wur
temburg, Gcrm'auy. He left a little
money iu care of one of his friends
and his life was insured. His only
son is 15 years old.
The revolver was a 5 chambered
Hopkins and Allen X L, and only
one chamber had been discharged,
the others were loaded.
Mrs. Singer and Mrs. Strchl,. sis
ters, and Mr. Wilhclm at Ililo, a
brother, of his deceased wife arc his
boy's only relatives.
He was found lying on his back
on the floor, the revolver by his side.
He had been in the habit of going to
the yard where he died, as Mr. II.
Pinker kept bees there which he at

FOREIGN KEWS AND NOTES.
A novel way of collecting taxes
has been hit upon by the Mayor of
Vndulcsli, :i small Roumanian ooin
inun.tv. He found much dilllculty
in collecting taxes, until one day,
when the men wore all in the Holds,
he descended with twenty subordi
nates upon their houses and carried
off their wives to Ins lock-up. When
the men returned from their work nt
night and discovered tint desolation
which had been wrought, they nil
with one accord went to the public
house to drown their sorrows, or,
perhaps, to celebrate their deliver
ance. But a few days afterward,
reflection having brought, them to
their senses, they paid the taxes and
recovered their wives. S. J?. Chro
