by the proprietor, who found hi at in

remarked that he would not

would arite after awhile. About 330

heard emanating from Swaffor.i's
room, ("poo Mr Bartlett's entrance
Mwafford asked to have a doctor called
at once, stating that be wat suffering
from poi»on. which he bad -wallowed.
Dr Noble having been hastily called
asked him what be hail taken.'
"Strychnine," was the answer.
What for?"
* 4 Oh, I am tired of living,"
Br. Noble found that the man was
too far gone to be able to do anything
for him.
After some convulsion*, during
which the man >utlered terrible agony,
he drew his la-*t breath ami lay back
on his pillow dead.
A tattle of strychnine half full was
found under the Wd, where the suicide
had thrown it. His body and few ef
fects were taken charge of by the cor
oner, and as soon as his rela'ives can
lie heard from the inquest will beheld.
The suicide was a native of Ken
tucky and 35 years of age and a car
penter bv trade. His full name was
John Willis Hwafiord. He has been
on the Sound for some time and wa
la«»t employed at Thomas Johnson's
-awmillat North Seattle.
The man i* given an excellent repu
tation by Mrs. 8. A. Johnson of Ellens
burgh. in whose house he had roomed
for some time. Mrs. Johnson is now
on a vi-it to this city. Swsfford had
borrowed her gold watch, chain, and
ring, and had pawned tbe former for
$5, nevertheless Mrs, Johnson is of the
opinion that Hwaflbitl was suffering
from a temporary tit of insanity, when
he took the poison, and that he fully
intended to return the jewelry. He
had intimated that he would take his
life several times and had also written
the following- which has been obtained
from Mrs. Johnson:
Whatcom, W. T.. Jau. 1,13*9.
Mr*, s. A. Jnhn*on, Fllen*hur.jh. If. T. —
To-day ends my life. lam too unhappy to
1 have led a miserable life. 1 pawned
jrour watch InSeatt'e, and I will send yon
tomethine to keep a« a memento. I will
be buned here. I have a friend that I wiil
leave a letter for tu mv room, and uill di
rect him what to do with my body. When
in the other woild 1 will visit you. Good
bve and God biets you and pity ine. Your
distracted friend,
P. B.—l send you the check for the
watch, and you can have Mr. Johnson get
it for you.
Tell the broker the whole thiug and 1
think he will give you the watch. When
iu tbe other world I will help you "If 1 can
Swafford also wrote to William
Gillson of North Seattle on January
1 that be intended taking his life, but
assigned no immediate cause for it.
He had borrowed several small sums
of money from different in
Seattle, and had not repaid any of
Mr*. Johnson, in company with a
Post-I.ntxlliuknc fb reporter, recog
nized the U>dy at the morgue la-t
evening, and stated that he had told
her that he had a married lister
name I Mrs. Laura A. Bradford living
on Batterv street in North Seattle,
ami also a brother, a l>r. James Swat
ford, who resides somewhere in
British Columbia. No cause can be
assigned for the deed, except that
Swaflord was financially embarrassed,
and had worried .wid brooded himself
into a morose mental condition.
