HIS W0J|1_$ FATAL Butler, Unhappy in Love, Dies of Pistol Shots. NOTE TELLS OF TROUBLE Heartbroken, He Says, Because Girl He Lores Is "a Flirt." LIVED TOPEE ASSUMED NAHE Dead Man's Identity Is Revealed in Letter Left for Friend?Shot Himself Three Times. A young man who wai recently em ployed as a butler at the house of Mrs. R. M. Clarke, 1228 Connecticut avenue, shot himself three times last nifht about 8:30 o'clock while in the rear of the prem ises of a prominent residence on Massa chusetts avenue, where he had been to call upon a young woman employed as maid in the house. He died at the Emergency Hospital about noon today. Messages he had written Indicated th*t disappointment in love had prompted the deed. The man signed his naune to one of the notes as George Boulton, while a note of dismissal from lire. Clarke gave his name as Bohlton. A postsertpi to we of the messages gave the additional informa tion that he had been living under the name of George Rice, explaining that that was why people called him George, while his name really is C. Brooklehurst Milton Mowbray. Last Saturday the butler received a note from Mrs Clarke telling him his services were no longer required, he having absented Iflmself from his place of employment without permission. He remained at the house until Sunday, however, when he left and, It Is thought, went to the house of a friend. Annie Muldoon. the maid, knew that he had lost his position, .but thought he would have no trouble, in finding an other one In this city and that he would remain hete. Last evening, Just before the shots. were fired, he sur prised her by saying farewell and tell ing her he was going to New Yor.k Deed Was Premeditated. Boulton or Mowbray had given some thought to the question of ending his life before calling to see Miss Muldoon last evening, however, as his notes had been written before calling at the house, one bearing date of Monday. In one note he referred to Mrs. Pierre Lorillard. who ended her life several days ago by inhaling gas, and friends say that her suicide had seemed to trouble him considerably. He had talked about her deed to friends, but had given them no intimation that ho expected to take his own life. Last night shortly after 8 o'clock the young nian appeared at the rear entrance to the Massachusetts avenue house?the entrance used by domestic* and tradesmen?and saw Miss Mul doon. He had been paying attention to the young woman, it is said, but his message indicated that he felt she had other admirers. Several minutes' con versation between the couple closed by the young man telling of his inten tion to go to New York. Miss Muldoon had just closed the door and had her hand still on the knob, when she heard pistol shots. Sergt. Evans of the third precinct was soon on the scene, where he found the wounded butler stretched upon the grass. He took pos session of the weapon and remained there until the wounded man had been removed to the hospital. Policeman Turner, detailed at the hos Stai, searched the clothing of the wound I man aad found two notes. Written across the front of one of the envelopes was: "Enclosed will find the cause." Told of Unhappy Love. One of the messages, which was ad dressed to a friend named Tony, read: 'Pear Tony: I am going to ruin, but I eannot keep it up any longer. For twelve months I have been trying to forget mother. Don't let this trouble you, be cause you're happy with the girl you love. I'm unhappy with the girl I love, for she's a flirt. I'm so heart-broken that I cannet take any interest in anything." "P. 8 ?Have been under the name of George Rfce. I am C. Brocklehurst Mil ten Mowbray. as you will underttand only. I'm called 0eorge." The police learned that the young man came hereonly' a few weeks ago. MISS FLORA WILSON TO SING. Will Be Heard in Concert at the Columbia Friday Afternoon. ?

MEMORY OFWOMEN Monuments Erected to Five Representatives of the Sex. TAKE STEPS FOR REFORMS Cnrioo* Story Relating to the Fink Home for Widows. A WOMAN'S HEAETLESSKESS Evidence in New Orleans of Be nevolence, Sacrifices and Good Works of Gentler Sex. BY WILLIAM E. CU&TIS. 6p?cui BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 12. 1900. We can count five monuments erected tn honor of women In the United States, and there may be more that I have not heard of. The first was that of Margaret Haugherty, the baker-philanthropist, who left a fortune for the orphans of New Orleans; the next was the memorial to. the Chippewa Indlah woman in Chicago; the third was to Frances E. Willard, the apostle of temperance, in the Capitol of Washington; the next was erected in honor of a Confederate war heroine, Emma Sanson, at Gadsden, Ala, and the most recent was raised in Capital Park, Birmingham, In honor of Mary A. Cahalan, a school teacher. If any reader of these pages knows of other monuments or statues of women in the United States, I would be glad to hear of them. Emma Sanson was the daughter of a poor white farmer?a "hill-billy." as such people are called?living a few miles from the town of Gadsden, in the northern part of Alabama, when Gen. Forrest came along that way In pursuit of Gen. Straight of the Union army, in 1864, she led him through a pass In the mountains go that he was able to overtake, sur prise and capture Straight and his com mand. She afterward married and went to Texas, where she died ten or twelve years ago. The legislature of Alabama voted her a pension for life, and the legis lature of Texas gave her a grant of land, while the people of Gadsden and the sur vivors of Forrest's command erected a monument In her honor. The monument ts a marble figure of a country girl, life size, in an animated at titude, with her finger pointing into the distance, and the inscription tells the story in the single sentence: "I will show you the way." ? Principal of Public School. For thirty years Mary A. Cshalan was principal of the Powell public school at Birmingham, from the time when this community was a mere village until It became the greatest, richest and most prosperous city of Alabama, and all of the business men who spent their boy hood here were among her pupils. The wives of many prominent citizens of Birmingham spent their girlhood under her tuition, and slie waa the best known, the most popular and the most influential woman In this section of the state. 8he gave her entire life to education, and did more to shape the characters of the lead ing men of this community than any other agency. Hence, when she died last year, a public subscription was started for a monument to her memory. Everybody contributed; some more and some less; many gave only a penny or a dime, ana the average was a dollar; so that the tribute was universal. It Is a marble figure, seated in an easy pose, with a book In her hand and a sweet, winning expression upon her face, which Is said to be lifelike. It Is also proposed to erect a memorial library for the use of the public school Children to bear her name, and contribu tions are already being collected for that purpose. Reforms by Women. I referred the other day to the several important reforms which have been brought about in the state of Alabama recently through the influence of women. They have taken the lead in public af fairs, and have directed movements that are revolutionizing educational and social conditions. President Bailey of Cornell University, who is chairman of the Presi dent's commission on country life, and Dr. Wallace of Des Moines, who Is a member of that commission, both told me that the most Intelligent and compre hensive statements presented at their pub lic hearings were made by women? the leaders of these movements, the president and secretaries of women s clubs, who seem to understand the situa tion and measure the obstacles In the path of progress more accurately than "This Is the more significant because only a few years since it was not considered genteel or even proper in the south for a woman to take part In public affairs, and until recently young women In Alabama have not been permitted to seek employ ment outside their own homes. % It was more honorable, or at least more becom ing. for them to starve in poverty or ac cept the charity of friends than to sup port themselves. But gradually the an cient social prejudices are dying away, and the only criticisms and objections to woman wage earners now comes from the relics of the old plantation aristocracy, who still adhere to the doctrine that It Is unwomanly to accept wages. A prom inent educator In this state told me the other day that he knows of at least forty young women of social rank and of the proudest ancestry In the south who are new supporting themselves without for feiting the good opinion of the set in which they had been born and educated, and they are all the more respected and admired- Thi?. be said, would have been impossible twenty or even ten years ago. and he attributed the change In public sentiment to the activity of women s clubs and patriotic organizations, which have broken down prejudices, trampled upon traditions and have emancipated their sex from the restrictions under which they had always suffered. It is possible today for any young woman In the south to support herself pursuing the same voca tions as their sisters in the north without losing caste. Pink Home for Widows. Down in New Orleans the other day I had pointed out to me the Fink Home for Widows, to which a curious story Is at tached. Mr. John Fink, a wealthy but ec centric old bachelor, who founded this worthy Institution half a century or mort ago was jilted by a beautiful cheole girl. She'had no objection to his name or hab its or rank, or circumstances but, after accepting his hand, broke off the engage ment merely because she did not care to marry and preferred to remain an old maid free to do as she pleased, and^ to ?work out her own individual destiny, as she said. She told him that all the wives she knew were slaves of their husbands, and that was something she would "'The young woman never married_ and for twenty years or more John Fink fre quently renewed his offer for her hand. Finally he accepted the situation, 7"'th drew entirely from society, a"d at his death left all his property to found and endow this home for widows, with the condition that "no old maid or unmarried woman, no matter how aged or deserving she be. or how necessitous her circum stances, shall ever enjoy the benefits of the bequest, directly or indirect y- or cros* the threshold of the home.' He closed his singular testament with the ^ord3 with which his sweetheart had rejected ^'??Let every old maid work out her own individual destiny " Beartlessness of Woman. John McDonogh was another wealthy man of New Orleans who suffered the lat ter years of his life from the heartlessness nt a woman, and dying unmarried, left Ms fortune equally to the children of that city and Baltimore, who annually cele brate May 1 as McDonogh day, with me morial exercises in his honor, and send delegations from each .public school to cover his grave with flowers. W1 John McDonogh was born In Baltimore, May 1.1T79, of Scotch-Irish parents, given > r. ? fc. Ask for Trading Stamps. Washington's Fastest?G rowing Store. yiiinimimniniii tt UllllllllllllllllttCm??

Evidences of Sacrifices. I Everywhere in New Orleans way be seen evidences of the benevolence, the sacrifices and the rood works of women. I wrote of several In a previous letter The Ursuline nuns were the pioneers of education and charity in the Mississippi, vallev Thev were invited to Louisiana by Gov. Bienville, and arrived jnlt27. Their school in Chartres street is the old est Institution for the education of young womtn in America, and they have an im posing building with gables, towers and galleries on the banks of the Mi?si88ioo( The grounds stretch back to a large plan tation, which is an important source of revenue for them. f On Dauphlne fctreet is Uie firtt free school ever opened for colored children. It is called "The Scole des Orphellns In diaens " and was founded seventy-five or SSS- years ago by a colored woman the Widow Couvent-whose husband a free man of color, acquired a c<mrtderable> for tune in slavery days, but His widow, who was a pious Roman Cath ollc, inherited all his money Md before her death arranged for the founding of this school for orphans of 1^er race. Mrs. D. A. Milliken of New Orleans founded a memorial hospital for white children, at a cost of Vft'hfnSv of her husband, and left it handsomely eMrs!reM. A. Hunter, widow of Commo dore Hunter of the navy, founded the first home for orphans in Louisiana, and perhaps in the south. In J817 a vessel loaded with immisrants arrlved at New Orleans with twenty little children on board who had been rendered fattiejless and motherless by cholera during* the voyage from Europe. Mrs. Hunter, who was then prominent in society and well known for her charitable disposition, gathered the little waifs IntoJ?**0? house until she could find and fit up an other place. Julian Poydras. a wealthy merchant and planter, offered a tempo rary home for them on the corner of Julian and St. Charles streets, and took upon himself the privilege of erecting a more suitable building, which was called Poydras Asylum, and at his death was handsomely endowed. Poydras a Quaint Character. Julian Poydras was a quaint character, originally a peddler, who carried h|* pack from the mouth of the Mississippi to St. Louis every year for five or six years, and ultimately became one of the wealthiest and most influential merchants of the south. He was always a poet and a scholar; he wrote the first poem known to have been composed in Louisiana prov ince, and published the first book of poem? in the south. He came froma distinguished French family, it is said, and was born with great wealth, but lost his fortune In Santo Domingo, and emi grated to Louisiana to make a fre?h $tHe Invested the few dollars he had aged to save from the wreck in a small stock of miscellaneous merchandise, which he offered for sale at the planta tion houses along both han*S ?f *J?

The new building for .a colored school at Brookland, the District Commissioners have decided, will be raised on the site of the old one. The last District appropriation aet con tained a provision that "the appropriation of (26.000 made in the District of Co lumbia appropriation act for the fiscal year 1002 for one four-room building and site, Brookland (colored), seventh divi sion, is hereby available tor the purchase of site and construction of a two-room school building at such point in or near Brookland as may bs selected by the Commissioners of the District of Colum bia." Engineer Commissioner Judson paid a visit to Brookland a few days ago to look over the available sites. Ae a result of his observations he made a motion to the Commissioners that "the present site of the Brookland colored school be used. as. after careful consideration, this site is deemed to be the beat available and is sufficiently large to permit of the use of the present school building until the new one Is ready for occupancy. The board of education favors the use of the old site." MASONS CONDUCT OBSEQUIES. Last Bites tor Jose Maria Ymaga Yesterday Afternoon.
