ENGINEER A SUICIDE
IB THE HOTEL SAVOY
ILL HEALTH THE CAUSE
OF W. W. TAPPAXS ACT.
Man. Despondent Through Illness.
Shoots Himself in a
Public Room.
Walworth W. Tappan. a ceasaltmg engineer
employed by the Crane company, of Chicasjo and
this city, committed suicide by shooting himseJf
through the head in the nashmr-rn of the Hot^;
Savoy last nia;ht. Despondence, due to ii!
health, was believed to bo the cause >r the act.
Guests at the hotel noticed the man nervously
pacing, the billiard room shortly- after 5 o'clock.
When attention was diverted from him he »n
tered the wash room adjoining, and the people
in the corridors and the billiard room were star
tled ry the sound of a shot. R. M. Johnson, a
banker, of No. 34 Pine street, was the first to
reach the room. He found Tappan Btretshed on
the floor with a bullet wound in hi? right tem
ple.
Dr. William Baldwin Wag of Astoria, who
was in the hotel at the time, was called imme
diately, but he could do nothing for the man.
An ambulance surgeon from the Flower Hospi
tai also viewed the body, but it was nearly thre»
hours' before Coroner Harburger was informed
and then through the hotel management. Cor
oner Harburger on his arrival found that awns
on- had searched the body and reaaoved letters
and papers from the clothing.
The rumor that Tappan was th<> cashier of the
National City Bank was started by the finning
of certain papers among the «uicid»'s effects
and w. H. Simonson. the vlce^-presldent of the
bank, was ailed to view the body He hald thar.
the ir.an had never b»en connected with his ln
stitoi :
One of the letters in the man's pockets was
from the -ane company in Chicago, exareasing
sympathy for him ir his "illness" and authoriz
ing him to <-xt-nd his vacation. Another letter
was addressed to the Janitor of th* 71st Regi
ment Armory, at Perk avenue and 34th street,
asking that Tappan be permitted to use the
officers' pistol range for practice. The name of
John F. J-nkin= was signed to the letter, and
it was dated October 11; 1908- A ti bill and
some small change, a bill from the Hotel Bel
mont for $467 65 and the address of a furnished
room house at No. 106 West Ud street were also
found.
The body was ordered removed to the East
51st street station by Coroner Harburger, and
ftfn Walworth W. Tappan. the wife of the dead
man identified it there. Shs =aid that she and
her husband had lived in the Hotel Relmont for
a little more than a year. He was forced to
give up active employment a* a consulting en
g-ineer because of heart disease, and had done
nothing- since the: came to Ne.w York.
Recently, she «aid. be had become despondent
and his mind could not be taken from his illness.
On Saturday, she said, he decided to take apart
ments ar the West 83d street address. He left
hjs wife then? and disappeared, ar.d nothing
was heard from him until the news of his sui
cide in the Hotel Savoy was brought to Mr?.
Tappan by the police.
Mr Tappan was fifty years old, and a native
of Indiana. He had been employed by the
Crane company for severs years. He was
known by many of the guests at the Hotel Bel-
I mont. One of his acquaintances said last night
'■ that he had frequently speculated in Wall Street
| and on a recent rise in the market had cleaned
up a considerable sum. That his suicide was
due to financial difficulties was declared im
probable by those who knew him at the hotel.
