William Dwyer Commits Suicide Whilt
Temporarily Deranged.
Williar Dwycr. a.bricklayer, whose hom
was at 336 I street southwest, committet
suicide in Baltimore yesterday by shootini
himself in the head. The deed was com
mitted at the house of the young man':
uncle. Six weeks ago Dwyer, who was
twenty-eight years old and unmarried, wen1
to Baltimore to work in the burned district
He boarded with his uncle, Policemar
Gorge Deal, at 1611 Gough street. It ih
reported that he had been drinking heavil3
and that his mind had become disordered.
Early Thursday morning his 'relative
were awakened by repeated knocks on the
door, and the bricklayer was admitted tc
the house. Dwyer said something about
being pursued by the police, and severa
times afterward he muttered something
about the police being after him. As s
precautionary measure the policeman re
moved his pistol from where he had beer
in the habit of keeping it and placed it ir
a drawer of the bureau in his room. Dwyer
found the weapon there yesterday while
the officer was asleep and with it killed
himself. He had taken the ice pick from
the kitchen to the room on the upper floor,
it is believed, with the intention of using it,
but changed his mind after he found the
revolver. The reports of the two. shott
aroused the policeman and he. sent for Dr
Josephson, but life was extinct when the
physician reached the house. Coroner Sud.
lcr gave the necessary death certificate and
Undertaker Zirkier took charge of the body.
Edward J. Dwyer, a brother of the sui.
clde, is a member of No. 4 engine company
in South Washington. He was notified yes
terday of his brother's death and went t0
Baltimore to arrange for the removal of
the body to this city for interment.

Conditions More Favorable for Com- c
pleting the Work.
According to the engineer officer in charge r
of the work of reconstructing pier No. 5 of t
the Aqueduct bridge, more visible progress t
was made last month by the contractors,the e
Penn Bridge Co., than during any similar
period since the work began. At the be- e
ginning of the month, he says, pumping. out t
of the cofferdam was commenced, after the
repair of the serious break in the dam,
which had been the cause of about a
month's delay in the work. Pumping was r
continued steadily and early in the month I
the bottom of the river was uncovered. No
leaks of any consequence have developed
since and by the local treatment of small
iniows through the sheeting with ashes -
or stone screenings the total leakage has
been reduced to an insignificant amount
for an inclosure of the size of this dam.
One 6-inch centrifugal, running intermit- a
tently, is sufficient to hold the water at its a
lowest level.
The report says that there was a settle
ment of nearly '% inches in the towers,
carrying the "A" frames, at the end of
June, which necessitated lowering the steel
trusses into their shoes and jacking and
blocking up the towers. The trusses were
raised again July 7, since which time there
has been a further settlement of about 1%
inches. By July 13 this subsidence had
practically ceased and the work of tearing c
down the old pier was begun at once under I
good conditions. A total of 975 cubic yards, I
out of an estimated total of 1,270 cubic
yards, had been removed by the end of the
month. Of that material some is retained T
for backing the new masonry, some broken i
up for crusher stone for use in concrete of 1
tr.e new pier, a small quantity deposited on
t the training dike below Analostan Island,
and the remainder used for the riprapping '
the Virginia approach embankment of the i
highway bridge. t
It is expected that the work of demolish
ing the old pier will be completed this
month and that the debris at the bottom -
of the river under the cofferdam removed,
preparatory to placing the concrete founda
tion for the new pier. The officer in charge
says that practically all the construction
mnaterial necessary for the completion of
the work is now either at the site or is
quickly available, so that the reconstruc
tion of the pier can be immediately com
menced as soon as the cofferdam is cleared
of debris.

Report of Recent Operations on the a
General Mackenzie, chief of engineers,
has received a report of recent operations t
on the highway bridge across the Potomac.
It shows that the contractors, the Penn- t
sylvania Bridge Company, have made good
progress in the driving of piles, the con
struction of cofferdams and in the deposit
ing of concrete. The laying of masonry has C
commenced at the northeast abutment and
at pier No. 12. Quarry work on the stone t
and mill and shop work on the steel for c
the bridge continue steadily. It is ex- a
pected that the riprap retaining dike at the t
base of the approach embankment in the a
rear of the Virginia abutment will prob
ably be completed this month and opera
tions begun on the Virgirlia approach. t
Contracts have been made with the ('ran- 4
ford Paving Company for the placing of
15,000) cubic yards of suitable material at
the Washington approach to the bridge and I
with Charles J. Smith & Son for placing t
3,000) cubic yards of riprap stone at thet
Virginia embankment of the bridge. About
one-half of the grading necessary for the
Washington approach embankment has
been completed.

erning the incident that your editorial
While Mr. Hoke Smith was Secretary of
lie Interior he was an earnest opponent
the free silver theory which was then
dvocated by many democrats. That
heory then prevailed largely in Georgia
nd in most of the southern states. Mr.
mith made a strong effort to bring Geor
ia to hlis way of thinking on that ques
on. In the course of that effort he had
series of joint discussions with the late
peaker Crisp, who was one of the ablest
dvocates of free coinage. During the gen
ral contest, and particularly, during
hose discussions, each side was so posi
Le that the other was wrong that the
ueston was often asked of each, "What
till you do If the democratic convention
ecides against you?' Mr. Smith and
udge Crisp and their respective follow
rs unhesitatingly declared that they
~ould take their medicine as gracefully
s they could and support the -nominee
nd the platform of the convention.
Free coinage was approved and Mr.
ryan was nominated. In keeping with
Is pledge, Mr. Hoke Smith supported the
oinee and the platform. He could not
mder the circumstances do otherwise.
laing to support Mr. Bryan and a plat
orm that favored free coinage and criti
ised the Cleveland administration, he re
igned from Mr. Cleveland's cabinet--as
.ny other self-respecting man would
ave done under like circumstances. His
osition was perfectly understood and
ppreciated by Mr. Cleveland a'nd every
riember of the cabinet; and the closeness
f his friendship with the President and
le cabinet was in no measure dimin
hed. He publicly supported Mr. Bryan
n the Chicago platform, but prefaced
hat support with the distinct reaffirma
ion of his belief in the gold standard
.d his opposition to silver. He maintained
hat other issues involved-such as the
ariff and the always appalling negro
uestion-made it wise for Georgia and
he south to support the ticket in spite of
he objections to it. And in the position
hich the democracy took at St. Louis he
as as good right as any other member of
he Cleveland regime to feel personal
pride and vindication.
Mr. Hoke Smith has since early -man
ood shown keen interest in Georgia poll
ics and advocated the principles he
bought would conserve the general
rood. He has nevel" been a candidate for
y political ofice; the only one he
ver held was that. of Secretary of the
nterior. He has been a leader in educa
ional matters; he has borne his full
hare in local charities; he has been a
onspicuous success in his profession of
he law; he has advedited the iryterests
f the masses of the people in every pub
c controversy ; .and 111 has always been
ioted as a fearlestg agressive factor in
very movement it which he has taken
iart. It seems to UOe that the New York
