the residence of bis brother-in-law.
Richard Meincke, 2112 Fifth avenue, at
about 7:30 o'clock last evening. For
some time past lligen atd bis wife have
not been living happily together, and on
Saturday night Mrs. listen left home
and went to the residence of htr brother
on Fifth aveuui). Hagen followed her.
and met his brother in-law, Richard
Meincke, in tte front yard. There the
two bad some words Meitxke's story tes

which circumstance Meincke reported to
the police yes:trdy morning. List
night at abou;. the time stated, 11 a ire n
again made his tippearance at the Meincke
bouse while the latter was sitting with
some friends in the front yard. Meincke
heard the gate open, and started around
the bouse, and was met by Hagen who
bad a white handkerchief thrown over
his right hand under which it ia sup
posed he bad the revolver conceited.
Hagen advanced directly toward Meincke
until within a'jo it two feet of the latter
when he said, "This is Anna's husband
and without a moment's warning he fired
tLe fatal shot which ended his own life.
Meincke at on;e went in search of a
physician, and ceihbors who heard the
report of the pinol gathered about the
prostrate form of the man and applied
ri.storn.ivt s, but it was too late.
DEATH WAS A1MOST INSTANTANEOUS.
Cormier liases was immediately noti

Wi3 about 24 yet rs of age and was usual

to be the cause of the man's rash act. He

Coroner H-iwes empaneled a jury, con
sisting oi Charles Hodgson, foreman;
Captain George Iong, Otto Grotjan, L.
V. Eckhart, F. H. Warren and E. P.
Pinneo, and a number of witnesses were

Tbe first witness was Richard Meincke,
brotber-in-law of tbe suicide, who testi
fied to Mrs. Hugen's running into his
bouse on Saturday evening, eaymg that
her husband was going to kill her, and
that shortly after Hagen arrived with a
revolver in bis band, and wanted his wife
to come borne with him, but she re-
fared, and that Hi gen then threatened to
kill witness. He further s'ated
that last night Hagen again came to his
house and then described how it occur
red as above etated. Tbe next witness
was Fred Pehl. who was at the Meincke
hou?e when the suicide took place, and
corroborated the testimony of tbe preced
ing witness, after which Max Boorgin,
who was also presi nt at the time, gave
testimony in collaboration of the other
The next witness was Mrs. Annie Ha
gen. wife of the suicide, who testified as
to htir domestic troubles, but could

The sdditionil consignment of pavine
brick for Edwards & Welsh due at 1:30
Saturday afternoon, did not arrive until
6. Accordingly paving operations on
Market squire were not resumed until
ine firm completed lh work shortly
before noon today, and Inspector Lloyd
has since been engaged with a force of
the firm's men rtiaing the Second avenue
pavement borderirg o the squire to the
proper grade This will be completed in
short time. Ttie firm of Edwards &
Walsh deserve greai prtise for the man
ner in which the tqiiare has been pved.
Xot only has it been done thoroughly
and well, but expeditiously. It is thi
broadest expanse of paving ever attempt
ed in the three citiei, and it required
therefore, a gre.t deal of care and
skill and a great many t rick It is also the
first jib in the three cit e? of double
course vi'rified brick, and the firm may
always point to it with pridp, for it has
ttie appearance of not only a ueat piece
of work, but of a substantial kind.
The firm this afternoon remedied the de
fect between the car tracks in the curves
at Twenty-third strt-et and Fifth ave
nue, taking out the brick on the tight
hand curve and relaying them ia herring
bone style to conform to the oiher two.
The firm has in this way evinced a pride
in its work t uch as is expee'ed of a local
firm having the city's interests at heart.

on Saturday night with a handsome easy

his forty-seventh birthday anniversary.
The party took Mr. Hubbe by surprise,

WHO COMES HERE?
Sprrulation aa to Who Will be Ap
pointed t'ommandaut at Hoc It Isl
and Arnentl to Mncreed Col. Whtt
temore. A Washington special telegram to to
day's Chicago Tribune conveys tbe fol
low ing interesting intelligence:
The assignment of an officer to com
mand the Rock Island arsenal is gain
receiving tbe attention of the chief of
ordnance of the army, now that Col.
Wbittemore, the late commandant, is on
his return from his vacation in Europe.
Col. Wbittemore will not be returned
to duty at Rock Island. This much has
been decided, but who will succeed him is
still a question . On account of its im
portance and contemplated improvements
Gen. Flagler is anxious to place an active
and able officer tn comm-ind of tbe arse
nal. It is. strictly speaking, a
colonel's command, being one of
three most important ordnance
command?, the Watervleit gun foundry
and the Springfield armory being the
other two. There are thlee colonels and
according to the customs of tbe service
they should each bave one of these com
mand?, but Gen. Flagler is not a great
stickler for rank, and is therefore as likely
to take a major as a colonel for Rock Isl
and. Maj. Clifton Conly of the World's
fair commission is prominently mentioned
in this connection. If it is found that be
can fill both billets bis assignment to
Rock Island may be looked for. Col.
Alfred Mordecai. a member of the ord
nance and justification board, Is also
spoken of. As far as the matter stands
at present the choice seems to rest be
tween those two officers. '
