DEATH DUE TO STRYCHNINE
Coroner's Jury Decides 'mat Sydney B.
Bull Took Poison to End
The jury empaneled by Coroner John
son to enquire into the death of Sydney
B. Bull met last night at Sherman's un
dertaking establishment and after hear
ing the evidence, decided that Bull had
committed suicide by taking strychnin".
Fred Gagnier, who had known Bull for
eigh years, testified that he was a sob n r
and industrious man but of late had
been despondent because of ill health.
Dr. Schwartz caused amazement by
holding the bottle of strychnine found
near Bull to his lips and tasting the con
tents. The astonishment was increased
when the physician stated that ope
tmth of a grain is deemed a fatal dos •.
. - added that if the bottle had been
lull, the quantity Bull swallowed, was
sufficient to kill every man, woman and
chid in Meaderville.
Dr. Schwartz was asked if the patent
medicines Bull had been using for a long
period prior to his death, might not have
induced melancholia. The doctor repli d
that he could not answer definitely be
cause he did not know the kind of med -
cine the man had been taking. He add. 1

LEW STEIN IN A SUIT ACCUSES
A PARTNERSHIP QUARREL
Claims Funds of the Cigar and Bawl
ing Business in East Broadway
Have Been Misappropriated—Says
the Books Contain False Entries—
A Considerable Amount Involved.
Lew Stein brought suit against Ike
Heilbronner, in the district court, today,
to compel the defendant to render him
an accounting in the cigar and bowling
alley business which Heilbronner hus
been conducting in East Broadway. The
complaint in the case Is a warm on.
from several points of view.
In his complaint Stein accuses Ileii
bronner of having appropriated receipts
of the business to his own use and shad
ing the transactions with false entries
in the books. One item alleged to hal -
be en diverted in this manner is said to
be $3,000 and another $8<?
Stein alleges that July 1, 1900, Heil
bronner and Thomas Denoon engaged in
the cigar and bowling alley business at
23 East Broadway. Under the terms of
the agreement it is said Heilbronner was
to receive $300 per month for his ser
vices and S5 per cent of the profits of
the business* and Denoon was to get
$150 per month and 15 per cent of tin
profits. On January 1 the agreement
was modified in such a way that Denoon
was to receive 25 per cent of the receipts
for six months. This agreement encoun
tered no faults until April 10, when Heil
bronner, it is claimed, refused to jjermit
Denoon to further carry out the con
On January 1. says the complaint, iDe
tioon sold to him his interest and sine,'
then Heilbronner, he says, has handled
all the receipts, deposited them in his
own name and has applied to his own
use from the funds large sums of money:
that on August 25 of last year he appro
priated $3.000 and applied it on a per
sonal indebtedness at the Silver Bow
National bank, and on the some dan
made a $3.000 false entry in the books:
that on the 5th of November, 1900, ho
took $80 from the cash drawer and left
a tab for $70 in its place.
Stein also says that on January 1
Heilbronner rendered him a false ac
count of the 15 per cent profits which
Denoon was to receive from July 1 to
January 1, stating, it is claimed, the I
Denoon's share was not more than $350.
In this connection Stein says he be
lieves the 13 per cent aggregated $1.350.
and that the total profits between July
1 of last year and January 1 of this year
were $9.000, and that they aggregate 1
$6,000 between January 1 and May 1.

The Devil in the Bell.
A few months before the death of
Father Boyle, of Washington, D. C., he
built a missionary chapel down by the
navy yard, and bought at a junkshop
an old hell which had lieeii discarded
by one of ehe Presbyterian churches.
He sent the bell to a foundry in George
town and had several inches of metal
pared off the rim to get rid of a crack,
and the harsh and discordant tones of
the bell became short and sweet. Meet
ing a Presbyterian parson not long aft
er, Father Boyle called his attention to
the change, and the latter could scarcely
believe it was the same hell. "What in
the world did you do with that boll."
inquired the Presbyterian pastor, "to
cause such a change in the tone?" "We
blessed it and blessed it and blessed it
until we got the Presbyterian devil out
of if," re torted Father Boyle, "and then
it sounded all right."
