One Hundred and Tvclftli ntreet, left Iioidh
on the evening of October 4, to buy a milk

On Thursday ho aat upon the piazza for
nearly two hours, went away and catne
hack ajrain at 6 o'clock, He ordered a
Class of garsapai'illa. Then he went to his
own room. He had asked Mr. Edward
Johnson, the proprietor of the hotel, not
to have hitn disturbed. He did not appear
yesterday and about 5 o'clock In the after
noon Johnson, after trying Ihe door,
got into the room by the window over the
piazza. The firm thing which caught his
eye was the young man's ahlrt. which
lay on the Uble. The bosom was written
over with a lead pencil. On the left
aldeoftheshlrtboson) were these wnrd:
'No Inquest. Morphia did it. David 11.
Itlsby, No. 254 Kant One Hundred a'nd
Twelfth street. " Alongside of the shirt
was an empty vial, labeled, "Sulphate of
morphia, one-eighth ounce, avoirdupois;
Power, and Weightinan, Philadelphia."
Johnson shook Risl.y by the shoulder; he
gasped, but did not speak. He was taken
to the Presbyterian hospital and died there
tweity miuutes after lie arrived. The oth
er writing on the shirtfront waa: "Em
ma, do you believe ine now, Unit the end
has come? Dave." This was over the spot
which covered hi heart. Reneath it wa.:
"This is the end of a weary
life without her," and further
down, "Let Miss Etn'n lawyer know,
at No. 675 Sixth avenue," On the debt side
of the shirt bosom was this: "Mother,
keep the pant a secret. If not for my sake,
for Em's. Dave."
Nothing but a button hook was iu his
pockets. What became of his $700 does not
appear. Risby was 29 years old. His
father, who died live years ago, was in
s od circumstances and for many years was
employed in the United States Assay ollioe

marriage was annulled and be was sent to
the Elmlra reformatory. He was reloaded
on parole In October, is?. In May, 18S1,
tho reformatory officials wanted him for
some misconduct, and a policeman went to
his house to arrest him. In the Harlem
station, where be was taken, he fired a pis
tol at a policeman and then shot himslf in
the left breat. He recovered in two
months. His other attempt at suicide was
in the house of a cousin, when he drank
laudanum. Since then hi mother says that

A Frlgltlfnl IU 1 1 road DUnnier.
PITT8BUUO, Oct. 13. The Chronicle's
Uniontown, P., special says: "As tho
II o'clock traiu on the southwest road, to
day, was approaching Lemout Station, four
tullis north of Uuioutown, Pa., it was run
into by an engine- at the funucc siding,
with terrible effect. The regular engineer
was not on duty and the little furnace don
key was manned by a young man Rho
seemed to have known noibing a 'mm his
business and was running at a rapid rate
toward the crossing, when he saw a Col
lision would be inevltablo unless he
checked up. Instead of staying at his
Fost and stopping the engine, as the pas
sengers suy he noubl have done, he re
versed brakes and leaped off, letting the
engine uo crashing lnoadsldc into
tho middle of tho passenger traiu.
There were eighteen persons In the car,
and the sceno was frightful. Men, women
a d children were knocked out of their
seals in every direction, and few escaped
being mangled, bruised and scalded. The
car took lire Instantly, and was wrapped in
flames almost before the passengers could
hti gotten out. It was entirely consumed.
Most of tho passengers were bespattered
with blood and soot, but miraculously as It
may seem, no one was killed.
Ihe worst Injuries were sustained by
Mrs. ('ashler Knox and her two llulo chil
dren of C'onncllsville. She is badly bruised,

VVAaiiiNUio.N, Oct. 18. -The announce,
mcnt of Postinaiter Has thai, ho will re
sign as soon us Congress meets Is received
here with cxpreislons of doubt by those
who know the history of Mr. Hays and his
position. Those who remember his
mysterious visits hero last winter and who
saw 1j 1 in pacing anxiously up and down the
marble corridors of the capltol while a
nomination fur tho St. Louis
Post Office was expected, during tho
last day of tho session, are slow to believo
that he will not be ready to re
consider his well-meant but hasty declara
tion of yesterday. If Mr. Hays could af
ford to spend his iniinulc, lliiHi and money
for the oUice tbeu ho can the more do so
now, as the ollice pays a larger salary now
than it did then. The recent change in
salaries fixed the St. Louis office at iti.OOO.
At the Postuirice department it Is frankly
said that Hays has made an excellent officer
and that none of the many charges against
him have injured bis standing with the Pres
ident or the department. The general be
lief Is that his card does not at all take him
out of the li-t of probable candidates for tho
ofllce next December.

Sr. Locm, Oct. 13. A monster meeting
cf citizens who felt agrleved by tho action
of a majority of tho Police Board In turn
ing out of ollice un honest Chief ol Police
whose only offense was refusing to tako a
bribe to prostitute bis office for the benefit ot
the gamblers, was held in the hall of the
Merchant's Exchange to-day. Housing
speeches were made by Hon. U. D. Kent,
(ien. Noble, Hon. John Uogan,
Hon. E. O. Stanard und others
to uu excited crowd composed of
the best, citizens, who applauded to tho
echo every sentiment opposed to official
corruption in general and corrupt pollco
beards iu particular.
i he sentiment prevailed mat tno com
missioners must go, even if It was neces
sary for the Governor to go wlthtbem.
The following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted:
The recent action of a majority of the
Board of Police Commissioners, eahninat
Iiil' in the removal of the chief ol poRoe bo
cause lie n . i.-' .1 to bo made the tool of a
corrupt combination, calks for an indignant
protest on the part of Um citiaens, against
such action; be it therefor resolved,
1. That tho Board of Police Commission
ers' established by law to preserve the
peace and good order of the city and to
protect the lives and property of its In
habitant, have betrtyod the public trust
confined to them and have become the
tools of a band of conspirators organized
for plunder aad using the iiistrumentallty
nf tho law to subserve Uiolr purposes.
Through tbctr action the arm of pabllo
Justice has been paralyzed, and Uie lives
and property of oureittxens pat tit Jeop

action of any members of the Board do
signed to serve the purpose of a political
party is in violation of their oaths oif ofllco
and In direct dellance of the law which ere
8. That the good name, as well as tho
host Interests of the city ot St. Louis and
stato of Missouri require the prompt re
moval of three said PoHoe Commissioners,
viz. : Lmr, Carutu anp Cleveland; that we
demand their removal at the bands of the
Governor, and that their places bo tilled
with competent and trustworthy n -n,
4. That recent developments connected
with the police scandal show that tho in
dividual holding tho ofllce of coal oil In
spector is intimately connected with the
corrupt combination referred to in the fore
going resolutions, and undeserving of pub
lie confidence and ought to be removed from
