A Sensational Suicide at
Architect Mullett Puts a Bullet
In His Brain.
The Deceased Well Known Through
out the United States.
He Was the Designer of Some of the Finest
Buildings in the Land—Melan
cholia the Cause.
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Washington, D. C, October 21. —
Architect Mullett, one of the best
known architects of this city, and for
years supervising architect of the treas
ury department, shot and killed himself
this evening at his residence. He had
been in poor health for a long time, suf
fering from rheumatism and other com
plications, but it is thought financial
trouble was the chief cause of Mullett's
Dr. P. J. Murphy, surgeon in Chicago
Columbia hospital, who for many years
had been Mullett's family physician,
made a statement of the circumstances
of the shooting, substantially as follows:
About 5 o'clock he was called to the
house to see Mrs. Mullett who was
slightly indisposed. After prescribing
for Mrs. Mullett, the doctor took leave
and went to his office just across the
street. He had been there but a short
time when a son of Mr. Mullett came
running over and asked him to come to
the house immediately. He hurried
back in response to the sum
mons, apd found Mullett lying across
the bed in his sleeping apartment, and
partially disrobed, unconscious and
bleeding profusely. The doctor made a
hasty examination, and found that the
blood came from a wound about two
inches above the right eye. The dying
man gave four or five gasps, and expired
within seven minutes after the wound
had been inflicted. When the doctor
first entered the room he found Mrs.
Mullett lying by the body of her
wounded husband., weeping bitterly,
with her arms thrown around his neck.
The doctor moved her gently from the
room and then gave his attention to her
Later in the evening the coroner was
summoned, and after an examination of
the body gave a verdict of death from
suicide, due to melancholy.
Mr. Mullett was 50 years old, and very
well known. He designed many of the
public buildings that have been"erected
in different cities, among them being the
New York city postoffice and the impos
ing state, war and navy department
builiingin this city. Mr. Mullett had
a severe case of the grip last winter,
from which he still suffered. For the
past few months he had been at times
despondent and gloomy.
WORLD'S FAIR WORK.
Classification, Space, Allowances and
Chicago, Oct. 20. —At today's meeting
of the executive committee of the
world's fair national commission, Har
ris, of Virginia, offered a resolution
which he asked to be referred to a con
ference committee of the commission
and local directory, directing that com
mittee to consider the advisability of
appointing a joint conference committee
ot the two bodies to act permanently
with relation to subjects in which both
bodies are interested. If this proposi
tion is adopted it will result in the crea
tion of a body, whish will probably be
in almost continuous session in this city,
and will exercise express supervision
over and have practical administration
of exposition affairs.
The director-general submitted a
report urging the adoption of a system
of bureaus for the administration of the
work of the exposition. He announced
the appointment of General F. H. Arm
strong, as his assistant, to be sent to
different states to assist in organization.
The sub-committee of the committee
on classification submitted a report re
viewing the entire work of the com
mittee, and making an estimate of the
number of acres of floor space and un
covered ground required for the various
displays, as followB:
Agricultural hall, fifteen acres; horti
cultural hall, five acres, without outside
space, twenty-five acres; live stock, 100
acres (noestimate of buildings); fisher
ies, two acres; mineral palace, five
acres; machinery hall, twenty acres;
transportation, twenty acres, besides
open space; electrical palace, four acres;
manufacturers' palace, twenty acres;
fine arts gallery, five acres.
The space to be covered by the federal
building and those of foreign and state
governments,and special and private ex
hibitors, is not included in these esti
Prof. Blake's report gave a system of
classification substantially the same as
that tentatively adopted a fortnight ago,
except that he proposes a separate de
partment for transportation—railways,
vessels and vehicles—and also a separate
department entitled, "ethnology, archae
ology and the progress of labor and in
vention." The matter of a separate de
partment for music and drama, he
leaves for the commission to discuss.
Chief Hennessy's Murderers on the Way
to the Gallows.
New Orleans, Oct. 20. —Tony Ma
tranga and Vicento Carruso, arrested a
. few days ago and released, were arrested
again today and committed to the par
ish prison, charged with being accesso
ries to the assassination of Chief of
Police Hennessey. From what can be
learned, there is hardly any doubt that
the five men who committed the crime
and the villainous brains that gave
birth to the foul plot are among those
now in jail. One or two more of the
conspirators are still at large, but it is
only a question of time before they too
will be behind the bars, and it is safe to
say that when the trial comes up the
police will be able to produce sufficient
information to send the entire gang to

STILL MAJJ'S INSANITY.
He Eats Regularly Now, Prays to God
and Curses the Devil.
Fresno, Oct. 20.—Last Monday Jo
seph L. Stillmanj now on trial for the
murder of John Fiske, announced to the
jail officers that he would not eat any
more food cooked in jail, as he believed
it contained slow poison. For three
days he ate nothing, but then asked for
food and has since then eaten three
meals a day, and says nothing more
about poison. When not in court or
eating, he spends his time praying to
God and cursing tiie devil. A large
number of witnesses who knew Stillman
socially, today testified that they be
lieved him of unsound mind. The
large crowd at the trial continues.
Republican Corruptionlsts Colonizing
Chicago With Negroes.
CmcAGO.Oet. 20.—A Democratic even
ing paper publishes the statement that
a negro named Dunson, arrested today
for improper registration, admitted to a
member of the Democratic campaign
committee, that he had been paid for
doing so by a member of the Republican
committee. He also gave, it is asserted,
the name of another one of the Repub
lican committee, who,with the first one,
secured the illegal registration of several
hundred negroes. He has the names of
some other Republican workers, and it
is asserted they will be arrested as soon
Pierre, S. D., Oct. 20.—A physician
living at Fort Pierre yesterday returned
from a visit to a band of Indians twenty
five miles from here, whithir he was
summoned by a "squaw man," who in
formed him that the entire band of 200
would die off unless something was done
for them. Thirteen have already died,
and many of them are down with moun
tain fever. These Indians have been
realizing the new messiah craze, by
fasting and executing ghost dances with
out stint, for months, until they are
helpless, and have brought on disease.
A PAINFUL RUMOR.
MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HOIST BY
THEIR OWN PETARD.
They Bought $10,000,000 Worth of Sil
ver Before the Bill Passed, and Now
Are Unable to Sell at a Profit.
Washington, Oct. 20. —There is a pain
ful rumor in circulation here to the
effect that members of congress who
went into a pool for the purchase of a
large quantity of silver before the silver
bill passed, have been unable to dispose
of their holdings, aud are likely to
carry them some months before it
reaches the quotation of a month
or six weeks ago. It is understood that
the pool represents $10,000,000 in silver,
purchased at prices ranging from $1.04
to $1.10. After the passage of the act
quotations ran up" as high as $1.10, but
speculators in New York unloaded so
rapidly, and so much of the metal was
shipped to this country from England,
that the market was flooded and the
congressmen were unable to dispose of
the large quantity they had purchased.
W. T. Carleton's Reappearance at the
Grand Opera House.
After a long absence Mr. W. T. Carle
ton reappeared last night at the Grand.
He put on The Brigands, in that finished
and almost faultless style for which he
has been noted for so many years. The
operais a highly picturesque one, and
the setting and costuming were done
with that regard to details and disregard
for cost which Carleton always develops
in his business. The music is not quite
after the customary Offenbach style,
but it is melodious and light. The
piece abounds in chorus work, and all
their ensembles were wrought out with
that care and precision which is the
main characteristic of the impressario'e
method. The resonant music was in
terpreted to the echo by the big mob of
singers in the chorus.
Carleton has splendid scope for the
display of his own wonderful voice. He
sang better last night than he has ever
done before in Los Angeles. He
is very nearly up to .his best per
formances of ten years ago.
The Three Beggars, from the Beggar
Student, was introduced by him and
given with supreme effect. Two recalls
did not half satisfy the audience.
A feature of the opera regretted by all
playgoers is that it does not permit Mr.
Murray to appear to any advantage.
His voice is hardly heard alone.
Charlie Drew's absence made a big
hole in the cast. His graceful presence,
and spontaneous comedy are not re
placed by many removes by Mr. Bige
low, whose main effort last night was in
the way of topical songs, the Wind and
Whiskers and Tale of Woe being his
Miaa Lane ia in better health than
when here before, and her voice is very
aweet and pure. It lacks only in power.
Jennie Winston is an old-time favor
ite here, and received a warm welcome
from the audience.
The house waa a splendid one in point
both of numbera and quality. All the
first-nighters were there in force and in

The Neally Steven* Concert.
First Congregational church was com
fortably filled last evening by a very c n
thusiastic audience, Who went to hear
Miss Neally Stevens in her first appear
ance before a Los Angele- audience since
finishing her education in Europe. Miss
Stevens received a very warm greeting
which was du|y merited, us ahe is with
out doubt one of the most finished
lady performera in this i mntry.
Miaa M. Lizzie Bacon, a local vocalist,
charmed the audience with her sweet
voice, and received several encores,
which she very graciously responded to.
The Los Angeles choral society lent
material aid to the evening's entertain
ment, and rendered their parts in grand
style. The chorus is very well "rained
for one so young.

Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Oct. 20.—Morley addressed
his constituents in Newcastle this even
ing. He said Balfour's arguments in
his recent speech were mainly misrep
resentations and irrelevancies. He re
minded Balfour that compensation for
the disturbance bill, the arrears bill
and tramways bill was all due
to Parnellite suggestions, and the
land bill of 1887 was draft
ed on the basis Parnell suggested.
Balfour was responsible for an excessive
coercive government, and he ought to
supervise it on the spot. Morley ad
hered to his previous assertions, that the
police had used excessive force in Tip
perary. It was not bodily injury which,
Balfour said, a stinking" plaster would
mend, but the sting of insult which in
flamed the people. Such supercilious
talk showed that Balfour was unfit to

Many believe he is here to agitate among
the French-Canadians for the establish

papers profess to know that the count's
objects are the acquisition of land for
Boulangerists in British Columbia; an

against her, declaring that if she did
not marry him, she would not marry
anyone. This morning he called at her

suit from a custom-made. The time was when a tall, slim
man or a stout man found it impossible to obtain a ready
made suit. That day has passed. Today you will find on
our counters suits specially made for the tall men and the

stout. We have the latest styles in fabrics and cuts. There
are firms that deal in clothing as merchandise in bulk,
like the groceryman sells flour. Anything with them that
is sewed together is called a coat or a vest. They care not
whether it wears. The idea with them is, the garment will
bring so much profit. Not so with us. We take pride in
our business and welcome every improvement. Well made
clothing is our specialty. We take the same pains tp secure
good wearing and well made goods, when buying 100 suits,
that you do to buy one. We aim to make a steady customer
of every man that purchases of us. That can only be done
by selling well-made goods at popular prices. Give us a
