Major Husack put a bullet through
bis brain early yesterday morning in a
lodging house at s*o>2 South Spring
The major waa of a very eccentric dis
pf eitirin of late. From letterß left it ia
plainly seen that he committed suicide
on account of financial troubles which
weakened his mind.
Ahout 12o'clock yesterday the body
wos found lying upon a cot in bis room.
In his hand he tightly clutched a re
vo.ver. No one in the bouse had beard
tho fatal shot.
At the inquest in tho afternoon it was
found that be bad borrowed the revol
ver ft-om J. B. Hutchinson, a salesman
for Thomas Day & Co., several weeks
ago, on tbe ground that he might need
it on a visit to Pasadena. Hutchinson
said ilrnt he had known the major since
February, having lived at the Livrlg
stnn hotel. He had hoard Husack say
that he was 52 years old. His wife left
faim last February, going back to Wheel
ing, W. Va., bis former residence.
Mr. Hutchinson read a letter left him
by the dead man. In which instructions
were left to ship his trunks to I. D.
Dubois, at Wheeling, and saying that he

Col. L. S. Butler, an old friend of the
deceased, said that Major Husack was
ahead of the commissary department on
Geo. Phil Sheridan's stall' when "Little
Phil" marched into the Shenandoah
Valley in 1864. He was in the quarter
master's department of tbe United
(states army when General McCook had
his headquarters in this city, and when
McCook went east Husack was trans
ferred to Denver. It is thought he wbb
discharged from service.
Colonel Butler read a letter left him
by Husack in which the deceased stated
that he had Bright'a disease, tbat hie
mind was wandering and tbat he was
going to join bis old commander, Phil
bheridnn. He emphasized his order to
wrap his body in a blanket and bury
him as tbe dead were buried during the
Colonel Butler received this letter at
4 o'clock and was greatly alarmed. He
reported the matter to Chief Glass who
detailed a detective to watch Husack.
The officer returned in an hour and
dated that he was ol the opinion that
there was no cause for alarm ; tbat Hu-
I rack was probably dronk. Tbis did not

Roberts of the police force started out to
hunt the old soldier.
Husack bad laid bis plans well to
avoid detection, and after several hours'
search tbe matter was dropped. Col.
But lei's worst fears were realized when
he heard of tbe suicide.
Husack borrowed a dollar from a
friend early in the evening and went at
once to the lodging house at 540 1 a
fcouth Spring street and secured a room.
He had been wandering aroond in Cen

numerous notes and letters.

He had never acted as parson before,

required by law and policed the happy

might object. He knew he would like

over the reports of the department

ported as having missed twice. He did
not think this was a particularly fine
showing. He nnderstood that Julian
had been formerly drooped from the de

that his appointment had been made
without bringing it before the commis
sion. If it had been done he would not
have been appointed.
Tbe matter was laid over until today,

The conference was held at the New
High street office of the Crystal Springe
Water company, and lasted from 1 :S0
o'clock until nearly 4.
Aside from the presence of Mr. Mott
for a short time no one else was present,
newspaper men not being invited.
The water committee has been stick
ing very closely in their conferences
with Mr. Pierce to the position that the
water company should give a detailed
statement of the property it has for
sale, and there has been a coyness on
the part of the company to do co.
Chairman Munson was seen by a re
porter alter the conference, and said
that matters had taken a shape as the
result of the talk which would probably
lead to a better understanding on both

day or two days or longer. Mr. Peirce

could be prepared by that time or not

Mr. Al Vinson stated that tbe inclnding
of tbe city engineer with the committee
in its deliberations was insisted upon
and finally agreed to by Mr. Peirce.
He conld not, of course, tell what valua

the various properties, but by this
means the city council would be enabled
to have come basis upon which to work;
in arriving at the valuation it would be
equitable and just for the city to pay.
Nothing more will be done by the
committee until the statement is made
by Mr. Pierce, which he stated he would
bring to them as soon as completed.
The Impending Danger to Our Civ
Hon. John Shirley Ward delighted an
audience of 700 people at the Unity
club last evening witb a stirring address
on the immigration question under the
title above given.
Col. John D. Pope was to have favored
the club with a paper on The Distin
guished Men oi Georgia, but gave way
to Mr. Ward, that he might prevent the
address prepared in full. Mr. Ward
spoke for nearly 50 minutes, and held
lub hearers throughout hie lecture witb
Among tbe many facts presented Mr.
Ward eaid: For more than 30 centuries
the Sphinx of Egypt, with face of
woman and body of hon, hae through
her stony lips asked every passer-by
mysterious riddles of life and death and
destiny, with the penalty of death to
those who fail to solve them.
There is on this continent an Ameri
can sphinx, with face of woman and
heart of man, looking not through Btoney
eyes, but eyes of intense yearning pa
triotism, and the mysterious riddle it
proposes is the Problem of Foreign Im
migration. Whether we are to continue
aa in the past, in tbe main, as an Anglo-
Saxon people, representing as we have
done, the best traditions of Engliab life,
or whether by perßon and amalgama
tion with other nations, we are to be a
composite likeness of them all, is tbe
question involved in foreign immigra
tion. Mr. Ward gave a brief outline of
the immigration laws adopted by this
country since its existence, as also inter
esting statistics showing the percentage
of foreigners in our various institutions,
etc. He considered his subject not from
sentimental grounds but as a practical
problem for solution, not denying
the rich contributions which
foreigners have added to our
national life, showing the valor and
assistance given by the noted men of
foreign birth, who helped this country
through tbe trying days of the revolu
tion, the civil war, the part taken by the
foreigner in our halls of legislature, tbe
bench and in tbe pulpit. Mr. Ward
claimed tbis country has the right to
discriminate between nationalities and
individuals. Race and color, he said,
are not things of accident, but are the
result of tbe deßign of our Maker. He
then paßsed through the history of na
tions, the strength of the nation—the
unity of language—urging that the pre
requisite to citizenship should be a
knowledge of tbe English language.
Mr. Ward closed his address witb i
"Citizenship was a grand word when
backed by Rome; it is a grand word
when it envokes the power of England;
but it is the grandest word in tbe
world's vocabulary when it is guaran
teed by tbe United States of America.
If it be such a boon, have we not made
it too cheap? Have we not bartered it
away for a mere mess of pottage? Have
we not sold it for 30 pieces of silver,
and then turned around and demone
tized the silve/?"

course will be given next Wednesday
