Tb« Kerr Suicide--Chief of Police
Memorial Doingrs in Tills City—City
R. W. Kcrr's Suicide.
Chief of Police Matt Shortall arrived
from the East yesterday morning and was
the center of attraction on the street, as all
were anxious to hear the truth of the story
as to the death of the late K. W. Kerr.
Chief Shortall had attended the coroner s
inquest in Quebec, and he said it was the
most thorough one he had ever attended, as
the people of the city were determined, as
well as the authorities there, that the mat
ter would be sifted to the bottom. B. W.
Kerr had influential friends in the city, his
uncle. Alexander Kerr, being a prominent
business man. The decision of the coro
ner's jury that 11. W. Kerr came to his
death by suicide was arrived at after much
deliberation, and the coroner wrote the ver
dict in the presence of the jury, who
signed it. The facts bore out the \erdict.
and no one, however biased, could come
to any other conclusion. The people of
Quebec were much incensed against De
tective Jack Kehoe of Chicago and also
against Shortall for coining, as they do not
like the American detectives and call them
sleuth hounds. Chief Shortall gave a lull
account of the whole matter, and the fol
lowing is a short synopsis:
When Detective Kehoe first arrived in
Quebec he went to the oflice of the police
magistrate and asked for his assistance in
locating Kerr, for which purpose* Detective
Walsh of the city force and SkhVactoaof
the Provincials were detailed to Bsafsl him.
lie soon got on the track, but Kerr did not
know he was shadowed for some days.aud i!
was only found out by one of his friends
who knew Detective Walsh and saw this
stranger with him. Kerr then determined
to leave the city for the West, and had his
uncle accompany him part of the way.
The crossed to Point Levis on the ferry
boat, on which the three detectives also
crossed, being appraised of what was going
on. On nearing St Charles, boom seven
miles \\._ •: of Quebec, Kerr tuppedoutr
side, when Kehoe, thinking ho was
to jump bom the train followed him. and
for the first time spoke to him. asking him
to come inside, as he expetcted Matt Clark
from Stillwater by that evening's train. :ivA
then they could arrange, these Matters.
To this Ken- replied "All right,"' and came
inside. To get back to "the passenger
couch, the mail coach had to be passed
through, but such cars are different from
those here, as a passage way leads outside
of where the mail matter is assorted.
Kehoe was ahead, and wheu he was enter
ing the second-class apartment ot the car
be heard a shot tired. Supposing Kerr was
firing at him, Kehoe sprang inside, and then
he heard a second shot fired. He was not
iir;.r Kerr when he shot himself, two doors
and the length of a car being between them.
the lirst shot tired by Ken- struck him in the
forehead, and glancing upwards followed
under the scalp to the top of his head, go
ing out through the crown of his hat. This
shot did not injure him. The second shot,
however, entered the center of his forehead,
passed through the brain, lodged in the
back part of the skull, causing instant
death. The surgeon afterward cut this part
of the skull out. and it was shown to the
coroners jury with the ball lodged in it.
The revolver was fired so near his head that
the powder was pushed into the hole made
by the bullet. Ken-s body was immedi
ately returned to Quebec, where the Inquest
was held. The detective who ac
companied Kehoe, proved con
clusively that Kehoe did not charge
pistols with Kerr, as Detective Walsh had
inspected Kehoe's revolver, which was a
self-cocking 32 Smith ft Wesson. A shell
which was still in showed the mark* that
Walsh had made with his knife to remove
it. Kehoe was arrested on the Monday
following Kerr's death, and was not re
leased until Thursday night. The police
magistrate fully exhonerated him of shoot
ing Kerr, and so did all others who were
present. Kerr's father was present at the
inquest, but his brother had not arrived at
the time Chief Shortall left Quebec. Ken
was buried in Quebec, as the body began to
decompose soon after his death.
In reference to statements that have been
published by a Minneapolis nwrnfnr paper
emanating from thts city. Chief Shortall
says there is not a word of truth in them,
ond he was surprised to hear them. If any
thing could have been proven against Kehoe
he would lnjve been certainly detained by
the Canadian authorities,but it was so clear
a case of suicide that he was discharged.
The Day at Stillwatpr.
Tho day when the soldier hero was con
signed to Mother Bacth opened dark and
dreary. Daring the night rain had fallen
in torrents.and daring the afternoon of yes
terday, rain fell at Intervals. Tin* previous
evening and up to noon, a good deal had
beer, done on Main street in the way of
decoration. The Hon. E. W. Duraut had
the front of the Grand Opera hoi.se draped
r.nd the entrance was finely arranged with
black and white, and portraits of Gen.

made an appropriate display. The lire hall,
grate prison, city ball and the county build
ing were appropriately draped. Among
the private residences those of Senator Sa
bin and George M. Semour showed to the
best advantage, while F. E. Joy, not only
at his residence but at his insurance oiflce,
showed that be had nut forgotten his old
commander. The headquarters of Mueller
post. No. 1. G. A. 8., and those occupied
the under part of the building made a hand
some display. Stores were shut at noon,
with only one or two exceptions, and kept
closed until 4 o'clock. At 2 o'clock the
bells of the city tolled for a quarter of an
hour, and the chimes of St. Michael's
church rung out an appropriate dirge under
the superintendence of Prof. J. L. Jones,
an old veteran. There was no attempt made
at a united display, but each acted as tho
