BirrTR,Oet. '2 ^. ^TIm^ second suieiilo in^Butt^ this wii'k cxr*eurr^*d at inxin Uwlay.^As in tlx- tln^t raw, the cause wua t.xi^fast livinir and trnmhlins' with other^|x*ople'x money-. To-day's victim of the^allureim-nts of furo was Marsh til \V. Wil-^^'^u, ^^ity fr.-it;lit solicitor of the Vorthorn^Pacific railroad. Ho wan a must popular^yomiK man in social circle*, well liked^fvcrywhen', anil up to Wednesday- hail^lieen irenerully known ai one of the meat^industrious mill reliable men in town. He^wax not known as a drinker or a kuiiiIiIit,^Hut \V^*dnes^luy he entered una two days'^spree, the Hetpiel of which occurred in his^roofn at noon to.duy.
At11 :^^^ o'clock this morning, Wilson^^topped at Alx* Heyinun's saloon for a^last drink. He took his dram slowly and^ilelilx-ratoly. Then Ik- walked slowly up^Main street, turned east at Granite ami^went to Mrs. Baker's |ixlt(iliK house at the^eorner of tti-nnito and Wyoming xtn*etH.^He tM-cupieu the front room on the east^^ide of the hull at Mrs. Baker's. He went^into his room and hx-ked the d^M^r. Then^he undressed himself and xTot into lx*d.^He took his revolver, of which he was^very proud, and which he had often ex^^hibited to friends, in his right hand. Ill^his left hand he grasped a glass of chloro^^form. He placed the milizlo of the re^^volver above his right ear and pulled the^trigger.
INL. Foster, roommate of Mr. Wilson,^was just eouiing home at noon anil heard^the rc|h^rt. He immediately *uk|tcctcd^shut had happened, and without entering^the mm ran for l^r. Murray. The two^together broke in the door. Wilson was^found lying on his back, his undercloth-^ing. tin- pillow on which his head rested^and the bedtli ng saturated with hlixxl.^Life was ebbing out and soon Ix-euine ex^^tinct. Tilt^ 3l*-calilxT cartridge, entering^a little alxivo the right ear, hud pa-sed^clear through his brain and came out Ix-^hind the left ear. The revolver was still^grasped in his right hand and the left^hand rested on the glass in which was^^^till a little chloroform. j
Wilsonhud neglected tit turn in to the j^railroad company about KiUOor Sti'm which j^he hail collected, ami that is supposed to I^have lieeu the reason for his act. His j^friends, however, had gained an inkling |^of what MM the matter, and had Ix-en i^busy collecting the money to adv.lin e to I^him so that he might not Is- disgraced. |^James Mi l 'aig, of the Northern Pacific,^hud things all arranged so that then- |^could In- nocx|m^siir.-.and Wilson's friends |^were on their way t ^ him when he ^^uded |^his life. They merely wished him la -igu |^some promissory notes, and had the^money for MM)I but they M^'IMmI only la |^liud him a earpae. Last night Wilson^gambled and lost heavily at Jack llowd's^gambling house. Those who watched j^him say that In- was too drunk to play in- |^telligently. lie signed several cheeks |^which llowd cashed all amount- I^ing to MMM Sl.il^*!. and over- '^drew his act o nit at t 'lark A bar- j^ralx*e's by a considerable aim 'lint. It was^tile intention of his friends to straighten^up everything with the railroad coiupauy^aud let the gambling debt go.
InMr. Wilson's clothes wen- found 5*7^i^in bills. $K.:vT^ in silver, and 315 in gold; al- I^so a check for *1'.^.^J on W. W. Me- '
P.L. Foster said: ^I ant a civil en^^gineer and bare roomed with Wilson for^a year past. Mr. Met'uig came to Me^this nvorniug ami saxl Wilsoa was in^trouble, and I went to work among his^frWida to set help for lilra. Mr. Met'aig^|i ter to| 1 me he feared Wilson would^commit suicide, and advised me to lock^him up. I went home immediately. I^found the floor locked. I shook it. and at^the Maine time I heard a pistol vhot. I ran^to l^r. Hough's, Dr. Leuvitt's ami Finally^to l^r. Murray's anil found I^r. Murray.^When we reached Wilson blood was flow^^ing from two wounds ami running on the^floor. Two months ago lie had said lie^thought life wasn't worth living; but I^thought he was Joking, and do not think^now lie was serious then.
('.S. tiilliert said he is a traveling sales^^man and was playing curds at the Mint^about H o'clock last evening, when Wilson^came in. He asked to play cards, and^they played for awhile. Wilson came out^even while there. Judge Lippiucott eatiie^and got Wilson and took him away. Not^until then did the witness MMI that Wil^^son was drunk.
Boston('hurley^ Marion, who is in^-lack llowd's place, said Wilson has been^a desperate gambler and bet heavily last^night. He gave checks at DtMn for^nlxiut $.V^tl.
Afew other witnesses were examined^and the jury returned ^ verdict that the^deceased died by his own hand.
Wilson'sfriends huve lx*en telegraph-^ing to try to liud where his parents arc^living, but have not yet MW successful.^Some think they live in Windsor and^others in Chatham, Ontario. Wilson is^reported to have brought K'to this^country. He has twice before MM in the^hole, but his friends helped him out. It is^estimated that he s|x-llt #l.MJt^ in the past^three days.
KoImtIWilson was sent to tlx* asylum^at Warm Springs a few weeks ago for^lunacy. He MMMJMfl Wi-diie-day. To-day^lie was found wandering al out the streets^of Butte and was captured by sImtiJI's of^^ficers. He will be scut back to the asylum^to-morrow.

The northeust corner of this^ground is but a short distance south of^tin* Blue Bird, and the north line^runs from here to u Carver's ranch.^The company has bought the Curver^uud Foni water rights on Divide^creek, fifteen miles south of Silver How,^I fiuying therefor about #f.S,OI^ll.

Tin* shaft is between the leads^of the Alice. At the lJUOfoot level cross^^cuts will be run IxMh north and south to^cut the leads.

Btrntk ^l**t. UK.- An impression lias |^n-^vaibsl among many |xs^ple of Butte that^tin* city they live in is an excts*^lliigly un^^healthy place. One reason for this im^^pression is that funerals in Butte are of so^public a nature. While in many cities^|x*oplc die anil are buried without the gen^^eral public knowing anything alxiut it. in^Butte every funeral pUMMeM through the^priiu*i|u^l strei'ts of tin* ^*ity to tlx* ceme^^tery. TIm-pi* an* no private funerals. Kven^in i ssns whi*re there an- deaths by iliph-^tlicriu the funerals are public and tMM^^dueteil through the main streets, whereas^in moxt otlx-r cities children dying from^that iliseam* an* Imrii-d tpiietly anil secret^^ly. The immhcr of |xsiplc dying from^pllcuinoula ami typhoid fever, tix^, has last^to an impression that Butte is an un^^heal thf ill pluce.
Itis, however, tin- opinion of the lx-st^physicians in Butte, that this impii-ssioii^is a false one. List year, in fad. Butt ^^figured, according to vital statistics, as^the second healthiest city ill the north.^St. Paul ranking first. It is admitted that^Butte will not stand as high this year, tin*^increased sickness arising from the long^drought: hut nevertheless there is no^cause for alarm. Tin- iucreuseil iiiimlx*r^of deaths is not surprising considering^the dryness of the season and the con se^^quent inferiority of the water.
Mostof the deaths in this city among^adults are from typhoid fever uud pneu^^monia. Ill other sicknesses Butte is re^^markably fortuuutc. It is a curious fact^that with tin* present month, and colder^weather, the physicians rc|x^rt a grout^deal loss pneumonia. Tin- most cases^Merc in the hot season, cs|H*cially in Sc|^-^tcmlx-r. This leads to the conclusion that^pneumonia is constitutional anil is widely^influenced by a cold, anil not produced by^it. A |M-rson wavering on tin* verge of^1 whether or not to have pneumonia, is apt^' to lx* sent over tlx- line by catching a DOtd,^j Typhoid fever is found to lx* pretty well^I distributed ill tin* present epidemic,^j but to Ixi worse whore well water is^used instead of the city water. A few^i years ago in the great typhoid epi^^demic, tin* disease was almost coiitliiiil to^tlx* district where well water was used,^and tin- districts where the hydrants and^water system* penetrated, were spurcd^largely. This year all parts of tin- city^have sulTcrcd more or less. The wells m^this si-ction are Ix-licvcd to lx* cs|x-t*iully^bud. owing to the mineral strata that is^likely to lx* |missc^1 through. A well ill one^pluce limy lx* pure us |xx-mihlc, ami a well^a few feet away may lx* poisoned and mi-^^it for use by some mineral contamina^^tion.
Dr.Leavitt, the health officer of Butte,^says then* is nothing to lx* alarmed at or^to lx- ashamed of in the city's health n ^^cord; only those who do not understand^tlx* situation an* ulamicd in tin* least.^Deaths must MW ill every city, but Butte^hu* cxcu|K*d wonderfully from the evil^n-sults that might have MMd anticipated^from the long drouth.
