Old Joo Silva, tho aged salmou
seller known to all tho old kamn-
aiuns who havo had occasion to
buy salmon at tho old fish market,
committed Buioide by shooting
himsolf in tho mouth at his homo
near St. Louis Collogo at about
'J o'clock this morning. Deceased
had been a sufferor from a com
plication of diseasos for many
years past. Becoming old and
the diseases having taken firmer
bold ou him, Silva became very
despondent and thero is no doubt
iu tho minds of people who knew
him that tho sufforiug bocamn so
intense ho found himself unable
to longor stand it and committed
the rash deed.
The woapon usod was a revol
ver. Tho scone of tho tragedy
was tho front of tho parlor.
Silva seatod himsolf in a chair
near tho door aud then deli
berately shot himself, tho ball
penetrating tho brain. Death
must havo beoti instantaneous.
A native was tho first to die
cover tho body of tho doad mau.
He had rnu to tho cottago upon
hearing the shot. His wife was
in au adjoining room, but being
blind, could not too what was
going on and did not know of the
death of her husband until told
by some friouda.
When the police officers first
reached the house it was- impossi
ble for them to get into tho house
as a latgo dog, tho faithful utten
dant of tbo old man at his store
on Maunaken street and at the
home, stood witch ovor the body
and at the approach of anyone,
growled nnd showed every iudica
tinn being ready to givo fight
should thore bo an intrusion.
It was not until n club was used
that tho officers could get inside.
At about 11 o'clock the coroner'a
jury in company with Deputy
Marshal Ghtllingworth, visited
the place and viewed the body.
