TAKES HIS OWN LIFE.
John Rocker, Engineer, Asphyxiated
by Gas.
John Rocker, thirty-five years of age.
wl:o was employed as engineer at the
Cochran Hotel, committed suicide in the j
engine room at the hotel last night or liils I
morning- His body was found on a work- |
bench In the engine room, a covering being ,
over liis head and the end of a gts tube |
resting near his mouth. Coroner Nevitt
was notified, and after making an investigation
decided that death was due to th?
inhalation of illuminating gas. and lie gav?
a certificate of suicide.
Rocker, whose home was at 1K7!I Galoi
street northeast, was night engineer at th*
hotel, lie left his home yesterday afternoon
at the usual hour and went to h's
place of employment. A cot is provided
for the night man. and aft<r Rocker had
attended to his duties he proceeded to execute
his plans for suicide. Nothing was
h> ard from him diiririir th? forh- ..r
tIn* morning, anil when Engineers C. H.
Thomas ami R. II. Cox appeared at >::*> I
o'olock to enter upon their duties fur the
day thev were unahle to gain access to the
engine room.
The eierk who was on ditfy at that hour
was told that tlie door leading to the engine
room was fastened, and lie was also
advised that the odor of escaping gas had
been noticed. A duplicate key was procured,
the door opened and the body of the I
engineer was quickly discovered. The
police of the second precinct were notified
and an officer was stationed at the hotel
to care for the body until the arrival of the
coroner. It is not known, of course, at
what hour the death occurred. Rocker
vv.in iiiunarrieu aim lived with his father at |
the address stated. No definite cause is assigned
for his act. A married sister of the
deceased lives in the northeast section of
the city.
A message was sent to the father of the
deceased telling him of the death of his
son. lie was greatly shocked, but told the
police he would have an undertaker take
charge of the body and prepare it for
burial. I,ater in the day the body will be
taki-n to the (Sales street house, from which
the funeral will probably take place Thursday.
Deed Evidently Premeditated.
Roeker had been working at the hotel
only since the 13th of the month. Two days
ago he was in such bad physical condition
that the man in charge of the engine room
remained on duty with him until he felt
certain that he was able to take care of
lUc me oiiu nigiiir. nigm wnen ne
reached the hotel he whs not feeling well,
but he gave 110 Intimation that he contemplated
taking his life. Before lying
down upon the Work bench and placing the
gas tube in his mouth Rocker drew the
Are from under the boiler, tilled the boiler
with water and securely fastened the doors.

JN FAVOR OF "QUEEN QUALITY."
Thomas G. Plant Company Wins Suits
Affecting Shoes.
It is announced that the Thomas G. Plant
Company has just been given the decision
by the United States circuit court at St.
J.ouis, Mo., in suits, one against the May
Mercantile Cnnwanv. the oilier n-minct
Hamburger Bros. Tlie history of the matter
is said to be of special interest to the
shoo trade.
A lot of factory-damaged shoes, it is explained,
were purchased from a Bjston
dealer by Hamburger Bros., who, in turn,
sold most of them to the May Mercantile
Company of St. I-ouis. The May company
made the shoes tlie occasion of a special
sale, in which moy werf advertised as
"Genuine Queen Quality" shoes, restamped
"Ladles' Favorite," and the public were
assured that they now had a chance to get
the genuine celebrated "Queen Quality"
Oxfords for $1.85.
The Plant company was notified of the
sale by the J. G. Brandt Shoe Company,
the only authorized agents for the sale of
"Queen Quality" shoes In St. Louis, whereupon
the May company, it is stated, were
warned of the alleged infringement. But
the May company contended that since
many of the shoes did not show any damage
and were originally "Queen Quality"
shoes, and as from some of them the trademark
was not entirely obliterated, they had
a right to sell them as genuine "Queen
Qualitv" shoes.
The Plant company maintained that the
trademark "Queen Quality" represented
nu-ir uwii auuHiaru ui excellence, ana that
no one else had the right to say that anv
shoe which It had condemned as unworthy
was a "Queen Quality" shoe, and that it
and it only, had the right to determine
what was or was not a "Queen Quality"
shoe*, also that the advertising of the May
company was calculated to deceive the
public and to Injure the Plant company,
the "Queen Quality" trademark, and th
dealers who handle "Queen Quality" shoes*.
The court holds, It Is explained, that the
May company had no right to make use of
the trademark "Queen Quality" in selling
any shoes which the Thomas a. Plant Company
itself had not sold under the designation
of "Queen Quality."
It also holds that the Plant company is
entitled to have and maintain its trademark
"Queen Quality" as applied- to shoes,
and to apply the same exclusively to the
_ - ~--vm uj it as a grade or
superior quality, and to enjoy the exclusive
right to Us use and the manner of
using it.
The genuine "Queen Quality" shoes, It Is
announced, are sold here by Saks & Co.

Falverene. It Is stated, was one of the

The night of April 18. It Is alleged, he waB
seen by William Perry breaking street
lamps along Ontario road. Perry was the
regular lamplighter on the route, it Is
stated, and he reported the action of Falverene
to the police, and the latter'? arrest
followed.
