salesman of tho Columbia brewery, commit
ted suicide yesterday at their home. No.
20C6 Victor street, by hanging herself to tho
transom of her bedroom. Melancholia,
brought on by HI health. is supposed to have
been tho reason for her net.
I It Is believed sho must have hanged her
self about 10 o'clock In the morning. Tor
the last year sho was 111, and for three
weeks oho had been confined to her room.
Her husband stated that her 111 health had
Induced fits of despondency, and it was hi3
custom to return homo at midday to talk
v.Hh her and cheer her up.
Mr. Eecgcr and his son William left the
houso shortly before 8 o'clock to go to work
and an hour later his daughter Mary left
to go shopping. At 12 o'clock Mr. Seeger
returned home, but found that lie could not
get his key Into the keho!e. His daughter
also discoiered that a lead pencil had been
thrust Into tho keyhole. Realizing that
sometlilng lias wrong, tho girl ran for a
locksmith and the door nay opened. Sho
and her father then hurried to Mrs. Fee
gcer'a bedroom on the second floor and
found her lifeless body hanging from the
transom, a rleco of lambrequin cord hating
been used as a noose. The body was per
fectly rigid and life had evidently been ex
tinct at least a couple of hours.
Mr. Seeger, aided by tho lockrmith. cut
the body down, and tho police were then
notified.
Mr. Seeger stated yesterday that his wife
must haie been temporarily mentally do

extremely despondent at times In the last
j ear, sho had not expresed any intention
of doing away with herself.

lilocnifontein. Thursday, Dec. 2-). The de
tails of General Do Wet's escape from the
encircling British columns show that It was
one of the boldest incidents of the war.
When Haasbroek's command Joined De
Wet, December 12, borne fifteen miles east
of Thaba N'Chu. General Knox was only
about an hour distant, und the Boer situa
tion appeared desperate. But De Wet was
equal to tho occasion. Dispatching Hais
broek westward to make a feint at Victotia
Nek. De Wet prepared' to break through
the lfrittrh columns at Springhalt Nek Pa-.?,
about four miles of broad, flat, unbroken
ground. At the entrance were two forti
fied posts, while artillery was ixted on a
hill eastward, watching tho Boers.
Suddenly a magnificent spectaclo was pre
rented. The whole Boer urmy of 2,5011 men
started at a gallop In open order through
tho nek. President Styn and Pell Fourle led
the chargo and Do Wet brought up tho
rear.
The British guns nnd rifles boomed and
rattled Incessantly. The Boers first tried
the eastward route; but, encountering artil
lery, they diverged and galloped to the foot
of the hill to the westward, whero the fire
of only a single pot was eftecthe.
The whole maneuver was a piece of mag
nificent daring, nnd Its eucce-s was com
plete. In suite of the loss of a fifteen-pounder
and twenty-five nrlsoners.
Tho British force detached after Ilass
brotk camo In contact with his corn-nan Jo
at nightfall. The burgncrs wcro scattered
and Welsh Yeomanry galloped among tho
retreating Boers, using their revolver nnd
the butt ends of their rillea with great ef
fect. An Incident of the tight was the gallop of
a British ammunition wagon right through
the scattered Boers, the gunners using their
reioiicrs freely.

To-day tho story of tho fight between
Kellar nnd Booz. in l'ort Putnam, on the
Cth of August, lSCeS, was told by Kellar him
self, us well as by some of the seconds und
sentinels, who were posted to watch fur of
ficers who might interfere.
A letter was read In eourt from the Rev
erend Allison of Bristol. I'a. It was written
in reply to the ono published from Cad-t
Burnett, president of tho Y. M. C. A , at
Jho academy. Doctor AIII-on f.is that
Booz was not a man to read noels hMdin
in a Bible.
Nothing adduced ln tho evidence to-duy
showed that thero was uny brutal hazing
practiced at tho academy, and the trend of
tho eiidcnco went to show that neither
Booz nor Breth were possessed of the ,icc3
sarv mental cnpicity to go through tho
entire course of studies necessary for grad
uation. Kellar Describe, the I'i'kIiI.

said Booz ran from Kellar and was struck
scleral times In the Kick. In the second
round Booz iy down and refused to get up.
Cadet William C. CanleH of .Missouri
said he had giien lint siuce to several,
but not more than four or five drops to
any one.
Lieuten-int Frank W. Co Instructor in
mathematics at the Military Aead.-mv. tes
tified tint Cadet Booz was deficient ln ils
mathematics, and never could haie- passed
hi? examination, lie was mentally far bo
low the standard required by the Military
Acatlc my.
Cadet IVank Kellar, who had the light
with Booz. said:
"I was chosen by a commlt.e of my class
to 'call ouf Cadet Hooz because he dis
obeyed the orders of the corporal of the
guard nnd made insolent i marks to an
upper-class man. I was told to weigh In
and I turned 17) pounds. Booz w.us 152
pound. He was taller than I and had a
longer reach.
"Wo stripped to the waist." continued th"
witness, "and my seconds told me I had a
tough customer to meet, and they told me
to do my best. For the first thirty seconds
after tho call of time Booz showed a HttP;
light, as he struck me a couple of times
about tho shoulders. I struck lilm under
tho left eye. cutting It slightly. After this
ho turned ills back and kept running awav.
I freqm ntly told him to face me or I woui.l
hit him in the back. I did hit him a couplo
of tirms under the right arm.
"In the second round 1 thought he was
going to put up a light after all, but h
immediately began running ng.rn. I struck
him in tho right ejo and then on tho stom
ach. He wont down altogether, althou.lt
tho blow . was not a knock-down nor a
kmJek-iit blow. He lay on tho" ground and
was counted out.
"I Jient up to him and shook hands. I
said I hoped that he had no 111 feeling to
ward me. Ho sail 'No,' and smiled."
llooz Lay on Ground nnd Cried.
Cadet Ralph N. Haj de n of New York, one
of the sentinels at the tight, said Booz was
not hit hard enough to knock him down,
and that all through he acted coward y.
Booz lay on the ground and cried.
Ha den acknowledges! haling taken part
ln hazing lower-class men.
Cadet W. T. Bettlson of Kentucky told
of one occasion when Booz was on sentinel
duty at the rear of Bettlson's tent, when he
spoke to Booz. who was standing at on"
end of tho post, and told him to patrol his
post properly.
"Had jou any right," nkcd General
Brooks, -to die him any such instruc
tions?' "No. not officially," replied the witness.
But I flt I had a right to gho some In
formation to him when he was doing
wrong."
"Was it not a breach of milltarv discipline
for uu to speak to a sentry on .iuty7'
It was."
"And ns a result of that Mr. Booz was
called out to fight?"
"Yes. sir."
'"rllP. fir. you had no right to put Cndt
Booz In that position." said General Rirukj
sharply.
Cadet GeorgoR. Spaulding of Michigan,
who acted ns timekeeper at the fight, said
Booz was nut Feierely Injured, and walked
nil right from Fort Putnam to camp, over
three-quarters of a mile. He tiositliely de

"Bristol, Ph., Dec. 13. 1W My Dour Sir:
I ws to acknowledge receipt of yonr let
ter of December 7. It Is my desne to say
that jour letter Is a confirmation, in not
a few particulars, of my friend O'car's

minister's duty to tell the truth. 1 feci
quite sure that tho Congressional Commit
tee of Iniestisation will discover that no
untenable, position has been taken by Mr.
Bcoz's friends.
"Your letter to me Is a most Interesting
communication, in tho face of the sweeping
and other kinds of statements by Co'onei
Mills. He denies the 'hazing' and the pres
ence of 'tabasco sauca' at West Point. Von
do not. You admit both, but to minimize
tho effects on the theory of 'exaggeration,'
etc.
"I am glad to have had your letter, as It
Is likely to bo helpful to us In more ways

natural it Is for you young men to see
no defects In jour alma mater, since you
have crossed the "plebC rublcon.

DELEGATES BECOME EXCITED.
Discussion Over a Hill to Increase
the City Pay Rolls.
The House of Delegates yesterday after
noon almost succeeded in defeating a bill
that was in high favor with most of the
members, and which had previously passed
the Council.
Tho bill provides that tho Assessor and
Collector of Water Rates may increase his
staff of employes by engaging two assist
ant meter and hydraulic inspectors, at an
annual salary of J1,(X0 each, ono dl-trict In
spector at an annual salary- of !i0 and two
general ollice clerks nt a yearly salary of
$1.CM) each. It was reported favorably by
Chairman Hartmann of tho Ways and
Means Committee, who recommended Its
passage. Mr. Sturdevant reepiested Mr.
Hartmann to explain the purpose of the
bill. Mr. Hartmann asserted that the bill
should pass, ns the extra emplojes aro real
ly needed. Mr. Sturdevant ccc.areJ that
he was not opposed to the bill, but he did
not believe anj thing should bo clone to aug
ment the salary account nt this time uu
lcss absolutely necessary; then fore, he de
sired to have the bill laid over for one
meeting. He finally refused to vote on iho
measure". Alter much debate, and while the
bill was still under dlscusslun. a motion to
adjourn to January 4 was carried.
