One Proves Fatal — Apparently
From Omaha — Inquest Today.
The death of a young man who gave
his name us John Huck occurred at the
Astoria hotel yesterday aftermoon, and
from the circumstances attending it
would appear to be a case of suicide-
Friday morning the dead man registered I

at the hotel as John Huck, Omaha,
Neb., engaging a room and payine in
advance the rent for a week. He was
about the hotel all day, and retired to
his room at 7 o'clock Friday night.
Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock
Frank Weber, a bell boy, while passing
the door of Huck's room noticed the
smell of gas. He pounded on the door
and succeeded in setting the occupant
of the room to open the door. Entering
the room, the boy found two of the gas
burners unlimited and turned on full
head, and the room so full of gas that
It was suffocating. The gas was
shut off, and Huck, as he called
himself, returned to bed. He was
dressed, and apparently had not dis
turbed the bed clothing, except to
spread over him a quilt which was on
the foot of the bed. B. F. Ferriss, man
ager of the hotel, was notified and vis
ited the room, nuck denied that he
had attempted suicide, and said he was
Just recovering from the effects of a
prolonged spree. Ferriss insisted on
Huck getting up, but the fellow de
murred, and said he felt so weak he
preferred lying in bed. He was visited
several times during the morning by
Mr. Ferriss and;domestics, but said he
did not feel at all bad. Shortly after
noon Huck was taken with a fit, and
Ferriss at once called in Dr. Baker. Tne
physician left some medicine after ex
amining the patient, and said he seemed
to be all right. About 2 o'clock Huck
■was seized with another fit, and in a few
moments was dead. Deputy Coroner
Xanten was notified, but as he was
called from the city, he turned the case
over to Deputy Coroner R. A. Whea
Dr. Wheaton when seen last even
said he had no means of determining
what caused death, but would hold an

EDITOR FOR MISSION WORK

TO SUCCEED IIS. WARREN.
Resolution of Regret for the
Death of the Latter — Three
Missionary Candidates Ac
cepted — Reports of Work Be
ing Done in China— Today's
Work Slapped Out.
When the roll was called yesterday
morning after the devotional exercises
twenty-nine out of the thirty-eight dele
crates in attendance at the Women's
Foreign Missionary convention an
swered to their names, the others ' hav-.
ing left the city temporarily to visit
In the order of business came first
the reading of reports of committees,
the one haying in charge the appoint
ment of candidates for foreign mission
work being first on the list. This com
mittee presented the names of Misses
Annie Elliker, Mabel Allen and Alice'
M. Otto, all of the Dcs Moines branch.
After some little discussion it was de
cided that these young women were
fitted in every way to do the sacred
work required of them, and they will
receive the necessary training in the
Chicago missionary school.
The most important report came
next, namely, that of the literature
committee. A resolution concerning
the death of Mrs. Harriet M. Warren,
who was for twenty-five years the edi
tor of the society's missionary periodi
cal, was as follows:
"Th<: literature committee Is deeply
bereaved in the death of Mrs. Harriet
M. Warren. Having been associated
with its work from the beginning, her
superior literary taste and judgment
were to us invaluable. We sadly miss
her as an adviser, worker and a friend,
and we can only say, with chastened
hearts, the blessed will of the Lord be
ELECTING AN EDITOR.
The committee presented a candidate
for the position of editor of the Heathen
Woman's Friend and other publica
tions, left vacant by the death of Mrs.
Warren. Before coming to any decis
ion in the matter several points of par
liamentary law were raised, and by the
time representatives from East and
West had handed Roberts' Rules of
Order around the two circles once or
twice, aud many amusing things had
happened, the ladies found themselves
back at the start, and proceeded quietly
to elect Miss Louise Manning: Hode
kius, of Boston. Miss Hodgkins is very
well Known in literary circles, and also
as professor of Eugliah literature in
Wellesley college for the past fifteen
years, so that she is eminently fitted
to succeed the late editor, whose loss is
so deeply deplored by all.
The audience was favored with a sa
cred selection by Miss Antoinette
Choate, who accompanied herself on
the guitar. Miss Choate was for some
time engaged in educational work in
South America, and is now a teacher in
the kindergarten department of the
teachers' training school of this city.
She has very kindly offered to favor the
ladies with some Spanish selections on
Tuesday, which Is South America day.
Mrs. E. M. Crow, of Los Angeles.
Cal., presented a very interesting report
of the work done in Bengal, ludla, and
whioh is under the supervision of the
At the afternoon session Miss Kelter
ing reviewed briefly the work in China,
both in an educational and missionary
way. She said that in her district there
were about 200 girls in boarding schools,
these of the better class, while the day
schools were filled principally with
girls who were taken off the streets.
She spoke of the way in which the
Chinese women had been in the habit
of compressing then feet, but said those
that have been educated have given up
this vile practice.
Mrs. Nind foljowed with a brief re
view of the medical work in Foo Chow,
China, where there is a school for train
ing women for tha practice of medi
cine, as well as one for missionaries.
Here, as well as in Pekin, there is also
a traiuing school for young men, where
they are fitted to hold responsible posi
tions under the government.
