NOTE IS FOUND IN AUSTRIAN'S
HAVE ENDED IIS OWN LIFE
What seemed afirst sight to be a
case of murder in the city of Ogden
last night has turned out, owing to
the energetic work of Detective A. B.
Jensen, to be a caso of suicide.
I George Molding, an employe of the
Bamberger company, found in the com
jpany's freight yards last night the
body of a man who had evidently been
killed with a, gun. Molding reported the
matter toGarner, the night watchman,
who reported the matter to the police.
Detective Grant Syphers nnd Chauf
feur Charles Wheat went to the scene
and Wheat found a .32 Colt automatic
i from which one shot out of the seven,
which the clip held, had been fired.
After the preliminary examination
of the scene and the body by the po
lice, a jury consisting of Byron Dee.
2903 Adams avenue, I. Morris, 325
ThIrty-fourti street, and James Gar
ner, 2602 Adams avenue, was cm
paneled and found that the man had
been murdered by somo person un
known. This morning Detective Syphers was
working early on two possible clues,
but at 11 o'clock tho matter had been
taken In hand by Detectlvo A. B. Jen
sen, who had established tho incident
as suicide by 12:30. Jensen found a
piece of paper in the man's clothing,
blood-stained, on which was written
"205 Twenty-fifth street, Ogden. Ta
ta." This address is Immediately
above the Fulton drug store and Is a
hotel largely used by Austrians and is
known amongst them as the "Bamber
ger." Here the deceased man had lived
and was known. He had gone out last
night and none of the people who know
him at the place suspected that he had
anything on his mind that would cause
him to worry, or despair. It was not
thought strange that he did not appear
at the hotel later in the evening and go
to bed there.
VICTIM OF ACCIDENTAL
SH00T1 0!ES II
An accidental discharge, so it Is
said, is the cnuse of the death of a
colored Janitor named Isa Lowrey
who died at the Dee hospital at 4:30
Lowrey, with -two other colored
men, was walking on Twenty-fifth
street near Grant avenue about 10:30
o'clock yesterday morning. When one
of his companions attempted to take
a gun from his pocket, the piece was
discharged. Tho bullet struck Lowrey
on .thejeft side. He was taken Into
Carr's drug store and a few minutes
later was removed to the hospital by
Detective Jensen and Desk Sergeant
Carey in tho police car. At tho hos
pital it was found the bullet had
passed through a' kidney, and in an!
operation last evening this was re
moved but tho patient failed to recover!
from the operation.
Lee Starks, a colored man, aged 25,
ono of Lowrcy's companions is b.eing
hold for investigation Into the matter.

BLANCHE Mrs. Dorothy Blanche
died at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
Margaret Mayborry at Kancsvllle at
1:4.0 yosterday afternoon of stomach
trouble, on her seventy-sixth birthday.
On visiting the hotel this morning
Jensen found the man's belongings all
intact from which it appears he Is an
Austrian by birth named Fedel Giusep
pe Packer, who has been employed of
late by the P. J. Moran Construction
company of this city. He had taken out
first papers on April 22 in Plumas
county, Cal., and was a registrant of
September 12. He registered at Quin
cy, Cal., and was 3G years of age.
Among his effects were found two
Liberty bonds for $50 each, of the sec
ond and third loans. Ono war saving
stamp for $5 and a bank book showing
a savings account with thb Kemmerer
Savings bank. Wyoming, where there
is to his credit the sum of $500.81.
In his trunk was discovered a letter
written in his native language in which
the poor fellow declared he was at
peace with all men, nnd all men were
at peace with him and that he desired
his personal belongings and effects to
bo handed over to his brother. The
name of the brother could not bo dis
covered from tho letter.
Further indications of suicide was
the discovery of a box of Remington
metallic smokeless cartridges to fit a
.32 caliber gun.
The deceased was a members of the
United Mine Workers of America.
Receipts for subscriptions to Red
Cross funds were also found among
the papers evidencing the Austrian's
real interest in this country.
The cause or motive for the suicide
cannot yet be determined. Perhaps it
may have been an intense love for his
native country, now defeated, that
moved him to think that life no longer
held any good thing for him.
An inquest Into the cause and nature
'of death will be held shortly. Moan

The city commissioners met this
morning in tho ofllco of tho mayor.
A communication from Dr. Beatty.
Stato Medical board. Salt Lake City
with referenco to what is known as
tho Tin Plato ordinance was rwid and
ordered filed This ordinance which it
Is suggested forms tho basis for a
wise dealing with the affliction caus
ed by venereal diseases had" its origin
in the city of Portland, Ore., and is a
widely discussed measure of amel
iorative reform, According to Mayor
Browning there are aspects of it which
mako it unworkable in its- present
form and undoubtedly the matter will
need to become the subject of debato
and resolution in tho state legislature
before cities can hope to work It ef
fectively. A petition for an increase in salaries
of the employees of the City Sanitary
department was read and it appears
that the salaries need adjustment in
these times of heavy prices. The in
crease was ordered as petitioned.
On the suggestion of City Auditor
Larsen a number of warrant against
sewer district 112 wero cancelled nnd
the district closed.
On motion of Commissioner Miles L.
Jones of the- Public Safety department
the amended ordinance dealing with
increase In salaries of members of the
public department was adopted.
Tho following resolution brought be
foro the meeting by Commissioner
Jones was adopted as read:
Whereas, Moral piecps placed upon
newly made graves, when taken from
homes where infectious diseases have
existed. are taken from tho graves for
Immediate re-use, and when taken to
other homes for such re-use may be
tho means of communicating infec
tious diseases, and,
Whereas, such communication ol
infectious diseases can be and should
be prevented by destroying the moss
and flowers used in such floral pieces,
Whereas, the commissioners of Og
den City, Utah, deem it necessary as a
police regulation to prevent such re
use of floral pieces.
Now therefore, be it resolved, that
the following rule be promulgated as
a rule governing the cemeteries of
No floral pieces placed upon a grave
in a cemetery of Ogden City. Utah,
shall be removed or taken from a cem
etery without first removing all the
moss used as filler In the frames there
of and tho flowers thereon, and it
shall be the duty of the sexton of a
cemetery to remove the said moss and I
flowers, or cause the same to be re-,
moved beforo permitting or allowing
any floral frame to be removed from. I
or taken out of said cemetery. J

WILLIAM I EGKARDT IS
CALLED By DEATH
William Rudolph Eckardt, born in
Coponhagon, Denmark, July 29, 1SS6.
He came to Ogden. Utah, with his par
ents In 1890, whero ho resided until
the year 1910 when he was united in
marriage to Miss Mary Batchelor in
the Salt Lake temple.
After an illness of five weeks Mr.
Eckardt died at his home, 3523 Adams
avenue. He had lived a devoted broth
er and member of the Ninth ward, and
leaves to cherish the memory of a de
voted and beloved father and brothor,
his wife Mary, two boub, William, Jr..
and Morland F. There are- also father
and mother, two brothers and one Bis
ter. Mr. nnd Mrs. O. E. Ecknrdt, Fred
rick R., and Dr. Henry R., and Martha,
(Dr. M. Hart) also his uncle, Judge
Rolupp and E. S. Holupp. Mr. Eckardt
was a member of the B. P. O. E. No.
67-1, Pocatello, Idaho, and B. of R. T.
No. 68, Ogden. Hp was a conductor on
tho Southern Pacific for the past Youri
years and was beloved by all who
knew him as a dear brother and a fel
low workman who will miss his smil
ing face and kind words forever. Fu
neral arrangements later.
G. J. Cunningham, who was former
j ly prominently Identified with the
I railroad interests of this territory and
who is now connected with the Nevada
Consolidated Copper company at Ruth,
Novada, arrived in Ogden today for a
visit with his famllv residing at 570
"I believe Ruth, is the best mining
camp in tho country," said Mr. Cun
ningham. "They p'ay good wages there
and the company does everything for
tho comfort and care of its employes.
While there has been a slight shortage
in some branches of labor, as a general ;
rule no serious results have been ex !
perienoed as a result of the drafting of
men for the army.
"Thero aro both underground and
Bteam shovel operations being operat
ed by thcNevada Con people at Ruth,
both departments working two shifts
daily The steam shovel mines are
much larger than is generally believed,'
the big pit being one of the main
sights for tourists travelling through J
that section of the country.
"Thero are a number of former Og
den people located at Ruth, which is
about seven miles from Ely The sup
erintendent of the Steam Shovel
mines is Frank E. Grant, formerly of
Ogden and W. Fred Bossner, also a
former Ogden resident, is Mr. Grant's
secreLiry. Quite a large number of
mechanics who were previously locat
ed in this city are numbered among the
residents of the camp.
"Ruth has been especially blessed
in connection with the influenza epi
demic. So far there have been no
deaths that could be directly traced to
the "flu" and of the dozen or so cases
that have been pronounced of that
malady, the attacks have been ex
tremely mild. Every precaution is
being taken, howovcr, to see that the
disease does not get a real hold among
the Ruth people."
STILL WORKING ON
The board of county commissioners
spent tho entire day upon the can
vassing of the returns of the election
a week ago today. The work will prob
ably last until tomorrow, as there are
seventy-seven districts in all to be
checked. Up until about 2 o'clock onlv
twenty city districts had been can
vassed and thero yet remains thirty
four city districts and twenty -three
county districts. The returns of the
districts heard from thus far have not
mado any mnterlal change in the re-,
suit as had been published.
CASES OF TRE
In an interview with Inspector
Georgo Shorten this morning the re
port was made that there seems to be
nn increase in the number of influenza
jases reported to the health office dur
ing tho past few days. Yesterday's
number of new cases was 54 and indi
cations are that today's report will bo
is serious. Ono doctor telephoned his
report this morning, saying that he
had twenty now cases.
The number of deaths yesterday was
Mrs. Ethel Ludwig Striffler, Glen
brothers and William A. Eckardt.
Mr. Shorten wishes the public to
know that there is very great reason
or the exercise of care. Owing to the
natural rejoicing of the people yester
iay it would have been humanly im
possible to have exerted sufficient con
trol to stop the crowding on the
streets, but thero is no doubt that !
hero wan some danger in that fact.
Mr. Shorten expects to be able to
nake a pronouncement tomorrow on
he matter of the ban on public nssom
alies. It is the opinion of many doc
:ors, that the restrictions are as urg
3ntly needed now nnd will be for somo
Jmo as ever they were and It does not
seem that thero can be any early proc
nmation opening up tho places where
.'ouug and old arc wont to meet.

Policing of the Seas to
Be Done By United
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 An im
portant part In the proposed after-the-war
international policing cf tho seas
Is expected to fall io th$r American,
navy. For that reason, it was learned
today, there Is no prospect of any re
duction in the present naval strength
! and the administration instead plans
to press urgently for tho passage of
i the additional, three year building pro
gram. Because the country has been lees
hard hit by the war than the great
European powers. It may assume a)
disproportiopate share of the sea po
lice work for a time, at least.
In any event, Secretary Daniels said
today, it is his desire to keep the
building progrnm moving forward so
rapidly that there will be no doubt
of tho ability of the United States to
furnish its full quota of naval power
when the time comes.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 The little
naval converted yacht Scorpion, which
has been Interned by the Turks at
Constantinople since tho United States
entered tho war, probably will repre
sent America in the allied naval forco
proparing to pass through the Darda
nelles. So far as is known she is the
only American war craft in the vicini
ty. - rr

As Church Bell Tolls Eleventh
Hour Troops March Into
Little French Town. ''
WITH THE AMERICAN FORCES ! '
ON THE MEUSE AND MOSELLE,
Monday, Nov. 11. (By the Associated ' !
Press,) The last French town to fall . ;
into American hands by the armistice '
went into effect was Stenay. Patrols ' i
reported they had found it empty, not . ;
more than a quarter of an hour beforo. :$
11 o'clock. American troops rushed ;
I hrough the towns and in a few ruin- '
utes allied flags were beginning to i
appear from the windows. As the
church bell solemnly tolled (,he hour of 1
the troops from the Ninetieth division ,
were pouring into the town. '
Only a line of glowing campfircs
marks the front tonight. Except for the
rumble of thousands of trucks and ' i
other" noises incident to the stirring of , :'
enormous armies there is not a sound
to indicate that two great forces are i 1
still facing each other. So far no viola- I
tion of the armistice has been report
ed, there not being even an accidental
burst of machine gun fire. i
The greater part of the S00 odd per- i :
sons still remaining in Stenay were in
their cellars, fearfully awaiting the ' :
bombardment which they believed j :
would surely come, as the Americans ' ;
entered Stenay. Many had yielded to j
German persuasion or force and had '
retreated with the enemy. Those few i
who dared first to venture into tbo : 1
streets greeted the Americans with ;
tears in their eves, nnd fairly deluged ' f
them with questions. The majority ' s
seemed too dazed to be able to under- ; t
stand that fighting had stopped. With
trembling hands they offered coffee :
and bread to their deliverers. J ' 1
Tho town is not badly damaged by j
shell fire, but. according to the ro- )
maining inhabitants,' has been plun- ;
dered of nearly everything of value, I ;

IN FRANCE, Nov. 12 The courage of : r

Marne July 15, a pigeon arrived at it 1
motor dove cote completely exhausted ' i
bearing a message of the greatest im- J x

away bv a shell splinter. The infon 5!

parry an important attack.
Many pigeons returned to their post li t
durlug tho battle of Verdun wounded I
in the leg or head. orae of them with I
their bodies torn by projectiles. Two L1 Xr
