Ex-Sergeant at Arms Canaday
of the Senate Pnts an
End to His Life.
Disbelieved by Bis Partner, "Who
Calls in the Mice.
THEY FIND HIM LYING DEAD.
Fear of Humiliation Thought to Bare
Caused the Deed.
1HE END OF A PROMINENT SOUTHEENEK
"Washington, Sept. 27. The end of a
decade of wild speculations ot a hazardous
kind in the hope always delusive that each
successive scheme would bring large wealth,
came some time between 6:30 and 7:30
o'clock this morning in the suicide of Will
iam P. Canaday. of North Carolina, former
ly Sergeant at Arms of the United States
Senate and known to politicians through
out the country for years as one of the lead
ing Republicans in the South.
The suicide was as iull of sensational pre
liminaries as any story alleged as the basis
of fact fora dime noreL There was about
it just enough of the element of uncertainty
to suggest a theory, quickly dispelled on
examination, of the commission of the deed
by some other person than the dead man,
or another theory that disbelief in his story
of having been robbed had driven him to'
Prior to the suicide, there was a scene
about daylight, with the dead man, hound
by (light cord fastenings to a door, which
fastenings he told the gentlemen, who had
been alarmed by his outcries, had been
bound on him 'by burglars, who, at the
point of a knife, had forced him to open a
safe and had then abstracted therefrom most
of the contents.
His Talo "Was Too rishy.
Following this scene was another in
which J. Q. A. Houghton, a captain on
Hancock's staff during the war and a part
ner of Colonel Canaday, told his partner
that he did not believe the story and would .
have it investigated by the police. Captain,'
Houghton accused Canaday of an attempt to
defraud him. Subsequently, to a reporter.
Captain Houghton said that yesterday even
ing he had put J2.000 in bills in the saffe,
the combination to which was known only
to himself and Colol Canaday.
The third scene was that which was visi
ble almost an hour later, when Captain
Houghton jreturnedwjta. Policeman' Gil
bert, wko broke open a window, the doors
having been locked by Colonel Canaday in
side, and found the former Sergeant at
Arms of the Senate lyingin a bath of blood,
dead from the effects of a pistol wound
through the head, extending from ear to ear.
The house in which the suicide occurred
is one of three brick houses. The two
houses had been thrown into one, and being
downtown near the Government depart
ments and other offices, the lower floor was
1 used for office rooms and the floors above
were rented out for lodgings, and across the
way is the First Congregational Church,
known to almost all visitors to Washington.
Ioaned Money at High Bates.
Colonel Canaday had the entire first floor
of b'oth houses and used it for office rooms.
He also had a cot in one of the rooms on
which he slept at night A sign in the win
dow read: "Law office, W. P. Canaday."
"Temporary office TJ. S. Patent Guaranty
Co." was another sign, and in the windows
heavy loan sign.
Captain ir. Q. A. Houghton said that he
was a partner of Colonel Canaday in the
business conducted, but bis name does not
appear on the signs visible from the out
side. He seems to have been the man who
furnished last year the money for enter
prises ot which Colonel Canaday was pro
moter. The business carried on, besides
that of launching various enterprises, was
that of a general pension and claim agency,
the loan of money, probably at high rates
of interest on securities of a character such
as banks do not readily take as assets; and
the issuance of patents. In this last, un
der the title ot Patent Guaranty
Company, Captain Houghton was
known to the people of the house
as associated with Colonel Canaday.
Yesterday evening the two men were to
gether for a short time about 1 o'clock, and
went oat together. Before leaving.Captain
Houghton says he deposited 2,000 in the
cafe. The money he says was in notes of
the denomination of 55, 510 and $20. The
cafe was in the rear or second room from
the front of the house. In this and the front
room most of the general business was con
ducted. Clumsily Bound and Gagged.
After Colonel Canaday and his partner
separated on the street the dead man spent
about half hour with Miss Moore, a fairly
good looking young woman of about 21
years of age. About 5:15 o'clock this morn
ing Charles H. Stevenson, an employe in
the Pish Commission, who roomed on tne
second floor just above Colonel Canaday's
rear office room, came down stairs, having
been alarmed by outcries. He found Colonel
Canaday bound to a closet door in the room
in which the safe stood and across the hall
way from his sleeping quarters. The safe
Strewed over the floor was a great litter
of papers of one kind or another and in the
fireplace was a charred mass of burnt pa
pers. Colonel Canaday was bound to the
door with his hands behind him. The
twine with which he was bound was of very
ordinary stufl such as is used to bind large
parcels, so that a man of ordinary strength
ought to have been able to break it with
ease. In his mouth was a gag made out of
a torn piece of his night shirt It had been
loosened so that he was able to make an
His story was that three burglars had
forced an entrance through the rear window
of the rear room, in which he was found
bound, and, going into the room in which
he was sleeping, had bound and gagged
him at the point of a .knife held over his
heart, and had then forced him to go across
the hallway to the safe and open it They
had abstracted a great part of the contents,
had burned some papers and had departed
alter binding him.
Afraid or an Investigation.
Captain Houghton was sent for, and to
him ilr. Canaday related the story which
his partner refused to believe. An exam
ination of the papers showed that a consid
erable number of negotiable notes made by
Mr. Canaday had been burned,and that every
book containing records of Indebtedness
against him had been destroyed. Affirming
his disbelief in the story, Captain Hough
ton said he would go for the noli nj
liave the story investigated. Officers Hodges
and Gilbert accompanied him on his return
to the house. The servant girl told them
that she thought Colonel Canaday had shot
,!Q window at the rear vu-f orced from
the outside, and the dead mau was found
lying on the cot He had dressed himself
alter Captain Houghton's departure, and
was lying on the cot, at if resting, but his
clothes and the sheet and pillow were cov
ered with blood. A 32-caliber revolver was
by his side. The mau had pointed his re
volver above his right ear and the bullet
passing through the head came out at the
ieft side. Death must have been instanta
neous. The body was taken to Undertaker
Pears' rooms. On a desk written in a large
envelope was the following note to Miss
Mr Dear Feissd 1 am not guilty of any
wrong. You may trust In me. Tlie people
who are perseoutlug me are worse than I
am. He U a villain (sic) of the very largest.
God bless you always, id the last prayer or
your true friend, Cakadat.
A note addressed to Captain Houghton
said that after Houghton's conduct in the
morning he (Canaday) had "no further use
Houghton's Story Excites Suspicion.
The police are investigating the state
ment of Captain Houghton that he put
52,000 in the afe yesterday evening. How
Canaday could have made awav with it is,
under the circumstances, a difficult ques
tion to answer. Mr. Stevenson, who dis
covered him bound to the door, says that
Colonel Canaday told him that no money
was gone, and that only papers had been
taken. It, as Captain Houghton says,
2,000 had been placed in the safe, and is
now missing, it seems remarkable that the
dead man said nothing about it
Captain Houghton asserts that he ad
vanced Colonel Canaday from time to time
about 15,000 and that" there was dsstroyed
about 100,000 stock of the Houghton Ma
chine Manufacturing 'Company, and also
certificates of stock in the Northwest Im
provement Company and other enterprises.
Captain Houghton is described in the city
directory as a machinist
Miss Moore, whom Mr. Canaday visited
yesterday evening and to whom he left a
note, is a young lady of excellent family
and good reputation, whom Colonel Cana
day knew in North Carolina, and is living
here with her sister, whose husband is as
sistant curator of the National Museum.
Colonel Canaday's visit was a brief social
His Career In Ofllce.
Colonel W. P. Canady was formerly a
Confederate soldier, later a stanoh Bepub
lican and for several years past the Nortn
Carolina member ot the Republican Na
tional Committee. He was one of John
Sherman's Southern lieutenants in 1880,1884
and 1888, and did much to keep the South
ern officeholders and negro delegates in line
for the Ohio Senator. In 1883 it was
Canaay who advised John Sherman to
publicly charge that Alger had purchased
the Sherman delegates from the South.
Colonel Canady was a populur and gener
ous man, whose ruin seems to have been
brought simply through his inordinate de
sire to make a fortune. That he was per
sonally brave and self-sacrificing was shown
in his war record and during the years
when he fought the battles of the Repub
licans in North Carolina, when such a
course meant permanent social and busi
ness ostracism.' Colonel Canady, as Ser
geant at Arms of the Senate, was an able
and efficient officer.
On the day ot Harrison's inauguration he
was the most conspicuous man in the vast
crowd assembled on the east front ot the
Capitol as he stood in the cold, drenching
ram holding an umbrella over Harrison's
head during the 'delivery ot the inaugural
address. Mr. Canady's tall form is promi
nent in all the photographs of the scene

Tho Supreme Conrt Practically Knocks It

Lij the Tinal Adjudication Until After

Milwaukee, Sept 27. The Supreme
Court this morning uas crowded. Chief
Justice Lyons announced the finding of the
Court in the case ot the State ex rel Lamb
versus Cunningham, wherein Lamb was
given permission to bring suit to restrain
the Secretary of State from preparing lor
elections to the Senate and Assembly in
this State on the ground that the law passed
by the special session of the Legislature is
unconstitutional. The court's decision was
By the Court The Court holds that the
order granting leave to the relator to bring
this action on behalf of the Stale was made,
hence the motion to vacate the same and
dismiss the action must be denied. The
Court fuither holds that the complaint
states facts sufficient to entitle the State to
the relief demanded therein; hence the
motion on behalf or the State to strike out
the demurrer to the complaint as frivolous
must be granted. Suoh determination or
these motions in effect overrules the de
murrer to the complaint. An opinion will
be prepared and filed at an early day. If
the defendant desires leave to Interpose an
answer to the complaint the Court will hear
a motion for such leave on the next motion
day. Justice Wiuslow (Dein.) dissents.
Colonel Yilas intimated that he wished to
see the Court's opinion before deciding
what action to take in the premises. The
Chief Justice announced that the opinion
would be filed at as early a date as possible,
but that he had given the general tenor
thereof in the order made, and thought it
sufficient to indicate the Court's opinion.
Colonel Vilas afterwards seemed to accept
this as conclusive, that unless he could
challenge the facts set forth in Lamb's
complaint, the gerrymander measure is
knocked out Hence it is thought if an
swer is made at all it will be simply for the
purpose of delaying the final judgment
until after the election.

FOR MOUNTAIN WATER.
Another Meeting of Prominent Business
Men and Officials on tho Indian Creek
Scheme Considering the Formation of
tho City and County of Pittsburg.
Representatives of the Western Water
Company, which proposes to supply all the
cities and towns in Allegheny county with
mountain water from Indian creek for
domestio use, held another conference with
officials and business men at the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday. There were present
Messrs. B. F. Jones, James B. Scott, Chief
Eigelow, Mayor Kennedy, Colonel Roberts,
Colonel Andrews. Prof. Brash ear, O. P. and
Lucien Scaife and George H. Browne.
Secretary Forbes and Chief Engineer
Jamison, for the company, presented de
tailed profile maps of Indian creek and the
surrounding country, showing how they
propose to secure and store a water supply.
By their original plan they figured on a
supply of 75,000,000 gallons of water per
day at a cost lor the plant of about $8,500,
000. But as it had become evident that a
greater supply would need to be assured,
they stated that by collecting the water of
three streams which meet at confluence in
addition to the Indian creek supply, it was
stated 150,000,000 gallons a day would be
assured. The cost would be more than
doubled, running about $17,000,000.
Speaking for Pittsburg, Chief Bigelow told
the representatives of the Water Company
he would be glad to give them a hearing at
any time on their scheme as they progress
with the work. The general impression
was that the scheme was a good one, bnt
that it had not yet been worked out suffi
ciently to justify the serious consideration
of the cities and surrounding towns. The
sentiment prevailed that the proposed sys
tem must insure a more than sufficient sup
ply for all the boroughs and villages in the
county, irom McKeesport and Wilmerding
to Sewickley, that being the confines of the
city and county of Pittsburg of the future.
Frbm the expressions of those present they
expect such a combination of interests into

retary of the Commonwealth these papers
are legally receivable on the 13th and 20th,
respectively, but parties interested were
advised that the safer way was to have
them filed at the earlier time.
If the view oi Mr. Harrity should be sus
tained the certificates of Josiah Hicks, can
didate for Congress in the Blair district, will
entitle his name to be placed under the Re
publican head instead of among the inde
pendent candidates. Several other candi
dates are in a similar position.
