BHEOUDED FOR THE GRAVE.
KcnHnllouul Kulclde of a Younir
Pittsburo, Pa., OcLl. A sensational
suicide was committed in this city. Three
weeks ago ' Orin Newton, a specialist,
who came u Pittsburg from Cincinnati
two years ago, having lost a large
fortune and deserted his family in
that city, died under circumstances that
pointed strongly to the theory of suicide.
When lie arrived at Pitt&burgDr. Newton,
who was an elderly man, was accompanied
by a handbOine young Woman, who said
her name was Mrs. Josephine Bryant,
and that she was employed by the Doctor
as secictary. A year ago the Doctor's
practice fell or 1 then Mrs, Bryant descended
to tl. oaition of housekeeper.
When the Doctor was found dead in
his bed she appeared greatly depressed.
The Coroner received
a note in her handwriting which
said: "I have taken fifteen grains of
morphia, with suicidal intent. An inquest
will not be necessary." The note
was signed "Mrs, Dr. Newton." The
accompanied by a physician, immediately
re-paired to the liouse occupied
by tho woman. They found her lying in
a bod attired in a white shroud, with a
wreath of flowers on her head. She was
not dead, but was unconscious and died
within an hour after the coroner arrived.
In the room was found a large ciuantity of
morphia and a quantity of another deadly
poison. Several long letters addressed to
different parties wore also found. The
burden oi these was that she had no desire
to live after tho Doctor's death, and
that her suicido was deliberate. One
letter, addressed to Uic editor of a daily
paper, requested him to secure the adoption
oi her son by some wealthy family. Another
was addressed to a preacher, requesting
him to see that her body was
decently interred and that religious rites
should not be neglectoL All the letters
were signed "Mrs. Newton," but nowhere
did she claim to have been married to the
Doctor. The dead woman was twenty-five
years of ace, very beautiful and finely educated.
She wa Iwrn in Hloomfield, 111.,
and was a niece of Alexander Campbell,
the founder of the Cambellito Church.

Detectives Palmer and Stieft, and was
turned over to the Pinkerton Detective
Agency on a technicality .they holding requisition
parwrs from tlie Governor of
the State of New York. The arrest vns
caused by a dispatch from tlie District
Attorney of Albany, N. last Wednesday,
saying Sherwin was wanted on six
indictments for embezzlement and forgery.
The story of his crime dates back
to 1878, at which time Sherwin was a
banker at Albany, mid, in conjunction
with several parties, among whom wero
some ollicials, defrauded tlie Smte dttt of
$S50,000. Sherwin and his confederates
were arretted when the defalcation was
discovered, but tho Stato failed to make
out a clear case and tlie prosecution fell
through. Sherwin left at once for New
Mexico and started a stock ranch. New
evidence came to tho surface and on a
visit to the East, in the fall of 1681,
he was again arrested, but in the
absence of other guilty parties he was
merely placed under bonds to appear
when needed. Again Sherwin went to
his ranch and the State continued to
bring U light new evidences against him.
The sureties for Sherwin concluded to
withdraw from the bond, and at once tlie
Pinkcrton Detective Agency bent out men
to shadow Sherwin. & lie was unsuspicious
und made arrangements to s(end the coming
winter in the States. He had married
a oung wife and wished to have her visit

ago, bringing Sher win's son and daughter
by a former marriage, three servants and

was done in princely stvle, no questions
as to prices being askexf of any one.
They took a suite of room on tho parlor
iloor at the Trcmont House, intending to
sojourn there a week before resuming the
trip. The Pinkcrton men were with them
all the time, never losing sight of the
party, llcquisition papers were on the
way from Albany when the dispatch came
to the police and Sherwin was arrested.
The Pinkortons did not like to lose the
credit of the capture in tliis way, and as
they had the requisition papers they had
Sherwin brought up on a habeas corpus
before Judge Jamoon, and he ordered the
prisoner turned over to them, lie will be
taken to Albany, and for the third time
will face his accusers.
