Washington Friends of Dr. Hat De
fend His Beputation.
"If the crime of murder'was committed
by Dr. Hau, the only reason that can be
assigned is that he suddenly became in
sane. The Dr. Hau we knew in Washing
ton. during his six or seven years- of resi
dence here, was not the character of man
who would descend to such a deed."
This is the opinion expressed, over' and
over again by all of the friends in this city
of Dr. Carl Hau. who is under arrest in
London on charges filed by the German au
thorities. He Is wanted in connection with
the murder. November 6. of Frau Molitcr.
his mother-in-law, in Baden-Baden.
No word, either directly or Indirectly, has
been received In Washington from Dr. Hau,
and the belief expressed is that feeling him-'
self entirely innocent he does not choose to
dignify the murder charge by giving It no
tice In a cablegram 10 nia menus ana asso
ciates In the capital. The report that Mrs.
Hau. In the Hotel Cecil, London, has denied
herself to all callers, and that she even
refuses tQ receive messages, is taken as
explaining her failure to answer two cable
grams sent to her since the first account
of her husband's arrest reached this coun

spoke of his personal affairs, he gave every

Committed SaleM* by InhaMB* Il
luminating (hi?Wm tfatiTe
of Qmrmmaj.
A man who was a roomer at the hone of
Mrs. Hattle Newman. 1629 Marion street,
committed suicide today by inhaling illumi
nating gas. He was known at the house as
Peter C. Fisher, but papers found in his
room indicate that he was Leopold Lamm
fromm. He was a native of Germany, the
naturalisation papers in his room showed,
and a letter written by the suicide indicates
that he assumed the name of Fisher be
cause he did not want his aged mother
to know what ha<f*become of him. He was
In a dying condition when Mrs. Newman
and another roomer in the house found him
about noon today. When the Emergency
Hospital was reached life was extinct.
A letter Wt In his room explained why
Hamrnfromm desired to die. It was as fol
"Life Is a burden If a person Is not sound.
I am bothered with neuralgia and If I live
any longer they will send me to the insane
asylum. I prefer to die. If somebody should
recognise me, please don't put my name Hi
the paper on account of my mother?she is
an old lady." '
Menage to President.
The other message was addressed to the
President. It set forth: "Theodore Roose

duty to protect the people of the United
States by law.
"CUb't you pass a law to put folks in
state prison when they sell water and
wood aioohol and aali It wine? Peop'e in
this country don't know any better, but you
have to look out for foreigners."
In another note the deceased gav? informa
tion as to where he had bought a bottle of
wine, and made the suggestion that some
action be taken. The young man went out
last night and bought a bottle of cheap
wine. He evidently consumed the beverage
during the night, as the empty bottle was
found in his room today. The deceased was
about thirty-five years of age. and he had
been in this city only about three weeks.
tie went to tne nouse or Mrs. Newman be
cause he read her advertisement In a paper
and she rented him a small rear room.
"He was a finely educated man." Mrs.
Newman said this afternoon, "and he
seemed to have no bad habits."
The business of the deceased was selling
cheap Jewelry upon the streets, chiefly
stick pins. A number of the pins were
found stuck in a black silk handkerchief
tied about his feet when he waj found In
the room today. Letters Indicated that
he had dealt with firms in Johnstown, Pa.;
Cumberland, Md., and other places.
' Expected Check Today.
The naturalization papers showed that
Leopold Lammfromm was residtoiz- at 'J50
East 10th street, New Tom city, the flth
of Apri>, 1880, when he made application
to become a citizen. Mrs. Newman yes
terday afternoon asked him for the room
rent for the week, as had been her cus
tom, and he told her he had no money,
but that he expected he would receive a
check t?day.
Mrs. Newman said that her roomer had
received letters from Pittsburg addressed
to him as Leopold Lammfromm. His name
was changed to Fisher, the police think,
after he started for this city. The change,
the police believe, was made after he had
considered the question of taking his life.
Detective O'Brien made an Investigation of
the man's death after the police of the
eighth precinct had been at the house, and
took charge of his cfTecta
Coroner Nevitt was informed of the cir
cumstances under which Lammfromm or
Fisher had taken his life, and he deemed
an InnilPKt nnnprpsajirv The Hnri v wn? T"A
moved to" the morgue this afternoon, and
an effort will be made to locate friends or
relatives of the deceased.
A general investigation or what Is known
Harrlman system of railroads, under
the authority conferred by law, is one of
the subjects that has been discussed by the
Interstate commerce commission. Because
of the pressure of work now before the
commission, and the great amount of labor
and time Involved fn such an undertaking,
the matter has thus far been considered
only In an informal and tentative way and
no final decision has been reached as to
when the proposed inquiry shall begin or
the methods to be followed In securing the
Information desired. The propriety of an
investigation of the system has be$n talked
of by the members of. tile commission for
some time, and that body. It Is said, really
stands committed to an Inquiry.
"We have been informed," a member of
the commission said last night, "that this
system in some of its features Is not unlike
the Northern Securities Company, which
was dissolved through the interposition of
the Attorney General of tke United States."
Any steps which may be taken by the
commission along the lines referred to will
be. it is said. In accordance With the gen
eral powers of the commission conferred by
law, and not because of any Immediate spe
cific complaint of a violation of the statutes.
In January, If time permits, the commission
will take up the complaint of the municipal
ity of Spokane against the Northern Pacific,
the Great Northern, the Chicago, Burling
ton and Qulncy, the Union Pacific and the
Oregon Short Ulnes railroads, involving al
leged discriminations In charging a higher
rate for a shorter than for a longer haul.
This complaint was the first filed with the
commission under the amended interstate
commerce act. It is regarded as of consid
erable importance, as its disposition will
logically have a bearing on the whole ques
tion of transportation in the west from the
Canadian border to Mexico and Chicago and
St. Louis to the Pacific coast. It is also
of importance with the proposeu investiga
tion of the Harriman system, whose terri
tory and connecting lines cover a large por
tion of the west.
Fines Imposed on Barbers.
Three charges of violations of the new
regulation governing barber shops were
presented to Judge Kimball In the Police
Court today. George T. Kussmaul, 1410 H
street northeast, and James L. Johnson, 46
Pierce street northwest, were each fined StO.
and Harrison Edlln, 1004 4th street north
west, was fined $5. In the latter case the
testimony showed that Edlin had tried to
get a plumber to install hot and cold water,
but that the plumbers were so busy they
coulfi not do the work.
Health office Inspectors are making a
thorough investigation of all the barber
shops in the city, aad whenever the new
regulations are not carried out to the let
ter In regard to-hot and cold water and
the sterilisation of Instruments and the gen
eral cleanliness of shops warrants are
