it is Inferred that Eggers killed himself be
cause he had been separated from his wife.
He lived on the third floor of the building
and the shot attracted Emll Almoos and
wife, who have apartments on the second
floor. When they reached the rcom Eg
gers was dead.
Mrs. Almoos told Policeman Clark that
Eggers s wife had visited him every two
weeks since their separation and paid his
room rent. His wife's address could not
be ascertained by the police.
.The weapon with which Eggers killed
himself was taken to the Four Courts. It
is of a peculiar pattern and evidently was
made many years ago.

Comptroller Player, in -His Annual Report, Demonstrates the Urgent
Need of Citizens to Eender Assistance for Adoption of Meas
ures to Give the City Power to Levy Appropriations
for Improvements Statement of City's Finances.
The annual report of Comptroller Player,
which was submitted yesterday to Acting
Mayor Hornsby and the Municipal Assem
bly, presents a series of arguments, main
tained by exhibits of financial transactions,
in favor of the proposed amendments to the
With the assistance of clear statements,
showing the monetary difficulties under
which the municipality has been struggling,
Mr. Player demonstrates how urgent It is
for the voters of the city and State to ren
der willing encouragement toward propaga
tion of Important public work.
"The needs of the city are but Inadequate
ly expressed by the estimated deficiency of
about $1,000,000 for municipal revenue pur-
poses." Mr. Player states. "By far the
most important pressing needs have not
been persistently forced upon your atten
tion, for the simple reason that constitu
tional and charter limitations put it entirely
beyond the power of the city, even through
a vote of its citizens, to secure the large
amounts necessary for improvements in .the
way of the erection and completion of pub
lic buildings, the construction and repair of
sewers, and the reconstruction and improve
ment of streets, where the city's share of
the coBt is too great to be met by appropria
tions from current revenue.
"Serious consideration should be given to
the question of providing means for the ac
complishment of the following new public

"Other new buildings and additions that

Courts, Police Courts and police head
quarters, costing possibly $1,000,000; Health
Department headquarters, including an
emergency hospital, dispensary and ambu
lance stations, to be erected on the site of
the old City Hall, at a cost of about $300,

"It Is evident that something must be
done to relieve prevailing conditions. The
city must look for relief to the ccnstl
tutlonal amendments to be submitted to the
voters of the State at the election to be
held In November next. The purposes of
the amendments to the Constitution are
"First. To authorize the levy of a tax
of $0.35 on each $100 of taxable property.
"Authorizing an increase in the bonded
indebtedness of the city, by excluding
from the computation In determining the
aggregate indebtedness the city may in
cur the $5,111,000 of a county debt aspumed
by the city at the time of separation Irom
the county, leaving the county kt the
time free from Indebtedness. Also exclud
ing the $5,S0S,000 of Waterworks indebted
ness. "At least 40 per cent of the revenue of
the State is derived from taxes assessed
against real and personal property of this
city, together with payments into the
State Treasury on account of licenses.
"During the last fiscal year the city
paid to the State for the purposes enumer
ated $1,234,077.02. In return? deducting the
city's share of the foreign Insurance tax,
$41,897.31, the State paid to the city $111,
880.63, being the Btate's portion of the cost
of assessing the revenue, and for witness
and other fees in the Criminal Court, to
gether with several small Items.
"The city cares for the State's halt,
maimed, blind, insane and criminals In its
institutions, and it is manifestly unfair to
deprive the city of the enjoyment of the
privileges accorded by the State to coun
ties. The law should be so amended as to
secure for the city the benefits of the same
State aid for its Institutions that is enjoyed

necessity for amending the laws of the
State applicable to the city of St. Louis,

Justices of the Peace and Constables shall
be elected, establishing their Jurisdiction
and defining their duties."

8CHOOL BENEFIT AT HIGHLANDS
The management, oi tne orest iraric niBu-
lands will give a benefit this afternoon and
eyenlnr for St. James's Parochial School.
At tho closa of the last fiscal year there
were $730,739.83 more in the City Treasury
than at the close of the preceding fiscal
year. The receipts showed an increase of
$312,711.88 and the disbursements a decrease
of J113.CC7.S5. Of the aggregate balance of
S7S0.733.S3, only $303,553.93 are available lor
municipal purposes, as balances in all funds,
except municipal revenue, are, by law. re
served for special purposes.
The revenue is not sufficient by at least
$1,000,000. Comptroller Player says, for gen
eral municipal purpo?es. Owing to the fact
that a balance of IM3.333.93 wag obtained
by strict economy, appropriations were
larger this year than ever before. Never
theless, the estimated requirements for this
j rear are $462,000 In excess of the estimates i
for the last fiscal year.
Concerning revenue and requirements Mr.
"The amount required to meet expendi
tures for purely municipal purposes, is $6S3,
229.82 In excess of what 1 estimated to be
the actual amount available for such pur
poses. At the end of the fiscal ear, 1902,
heads of the departments were requested
by me to submit estimates of requirements
for the current year, based:
"First On the minimum amount that can
bo made to cover expenses under pressure
resulting from inadequate revenue, and
"Second On the minimum amount required
to secure the be&t results and normal con
ditions, with due regard to economy.
"Tlie estimates submitted aggregated, for
municipal purposes, under the first con
ditions, $730,OUO. Under the second con
"There can be no doubt that the revenue
of the city for general municipal purposes
is, at the lowest estimate, at least one
million dollars ($l,009,0uo; short of meeting
"The estimated requirements for general
municipal purposes for the current year
(that Is, the year ending April 13. 1903,) are
nearly $462,000 In excess of the estimated re
quirements for the fiscal year Just closed.
The estimated amount available for appro
priations to meet these requirements ex
ceeds the estimate of last year by about
$673,000. The amount estimated as being
available for general municipal purposes for
the last fiscal year was $3,987,212.30. The
amount actually disbursed on account of
municipal revenue for the same period was
$5,983,673.02, but at the close of the last fiscal
year there was, as haa been shown, an un
appropriated balance In the treasury of

how this Judgment under such circum

even if he recovered somewhat, he would
be an embecile and that the best thing to
do was to send him to an asylum.
His condition, so far as he himself felt,
was that of a man so weary that he cannot
keep his eyes open. But even when arou.sed
he could not express himself about the ter
ror which afflicted him. Upon being shaken
and called sharply he could speak, but al
ways in a drowsy way.
The theory that the principal nerve In tho
back of the neck had undergone a stricture,
producing possible congestion of blood in the
head, physicians say, seems to explain the
condition of sleep.
