HAD NO FURTHER USE FOR LIFE. A Sensational Suicide at the National Capital. Ex-Sersreant-at-Arma Canaday Puts a Ru'let Through His Brain. Wildcat Speculation Drove Him to the Bash Act—A Respectable Young Woman's Name Dragged Into tlie Case. By the Associated Press.l Washington, Sept. 27.—William P. Canaday of North Carolina, ex-sergeant at-arms ol" the United States senate, euicided here this morning, by shooting himself through the head. He had been in financial trouble for some time. Canaday occupied rooms at 712 and 714 Keat atreet, as lodging and office quarters, where, in partnership with Capt. J. Q. A. Houghton, he conducted a business of loaning money on ae curities, such as banks refused to handle, and waß launching a company to guarantee patenta. The first scene in the tragedy waa about daylight this morning, when a gentlem in rooming above, was attracted to Canaday'a door by the latter'a criee. He found Canaday bound and gagged, and the latter claimed that thia waa the work of burglars, who had forced him to open his safe and take out the con tents. When Captain Houghton arrived, he told Canaday he did not believe this Story, and thought it, was a ruse to cover the theft by Canaday, of $2000 which Houghton had put in the safe the pre vious evening. Houghton then went out to get a policeman. When he re turned, he found Canaday lying dead, bathed iv blood, with a bullet hole through his head. a woman in the case. It seeing there was a woman in the case—a Miss Moore, for whom he left a note declaring he was guilty of no wrong, and asking God to bless her, as his last prayer. The tragedy is the climax to a decade of wild adventurous speculation in pro jects of a hazardous kind, in the hope, always delusive, that each successive scheme would bring Urge wealth. Ie was about a quarter after 5 o'clock this morning when Charleß H. Steven son, an employe in a fish commission houße, who roomed on the second floor, just above Colonel Canaday's rear office room, came down stairs, having been alarmed by outcries. He found Colonel Canaday bound to the closet door in the room in which the cafe stood, and across the hallway from his sleeping quarters. The safe was open. Strewed over the floor was a great litter of papers, and iv the fireplace a charred mass of burnt papers. m Colonel Canaday was bound to the door, with his hands behind him. The twine with which he was bound was very ordinary such as is used to bind large parcels, so that «a man of ordinary strength ought to have been able to break it with ease. In his mouth was a gag made out of a piece of muslin torn from his nightshirt, which was found across the hallway. It had been loos ened, so he was able to make an outciy. COLONEL CANADAY'b STORY. Colonel Canaday's story was that some time after 2 o'clock in the morn ing three burglars forced an entrance through the rear window of the room in which he was found bound and gagged ; from there they wme into the room in which he was sleeping; bound him at the point of a revolver, then forced him to go across the hallway to the safe and open it. They abstracted a great part of the contents, burned some papers and departed, after binding him. Captain Houghton was sent for, and to him Canaday related this story, which hia partner refused to believe. An examination of the papers showed that a considerable number of negotia ble eo'ch made by Colonel Canaday had been burned, and every booti containing a recoid of indebtedness against him had been destroyed. PREFERRED DEATH TO ARPEST, Affirming his disbelief in the story, Captain Houghton said ho would go for the police and have the etory investi gated. Officers Hodges and Gilbert ac companied him on his return to tbe house. A servant girl told them as they came in that she thought Colonel Can aday had shot himself. The window at the rear was forced from the outside, and tbe dead man was found lying on a cot. He iiad dressed himself after Captain Houghton's departure, and was lying on a cot as -if resting, but his clothes and the sheet and pillows of tbe cot wero covered with blood. A 32 --caliber levolver lay by hia side. The desperate man had pointed it at his head, just, above the right ear, and sent a bullet clear through the brain. The bullet came out just above the left ear and dropped to the floor. Death must have been nearly instaneous. FAREWELL TO THE WORLD. The body waa removed to an under taker's roome. where an inquest will be held. On a desk, written on a large enve lope, was the following note to Miss Moore: My Dear Friend : I am not guilty of any wrong. You may trust in me. The people who are persecuting me are worse than I am. He (probably mean ing Captain Houghton) is a villain of the deepest dye. God bless you always, ia the last prayer of your true friend, Canaday-. A note addressed to Captain Hough ton said that, alter Houghton's conduct this morning, he (Canaday) had "no further use for life." POLICE WORKING ON TUB CASE. The police are investigating the state ment of Captain Houghton, that he put $2000 in the safe yeßterday. How Can aday could have made away with it, is, under the circumstances, a difficult question to answer. Miss Moore, whom Canaday visited yesterday, and to whom tie left a note, is a young lady of excellent family aud good reputation, whom Colonel Canaday knew in North Carolina. She lives with her married sister. Canaday 'c call was a brief social one. Entirely Satisfactory. W. J.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1892. THE FAIR. Babies, Pretty Girls and Type Writers to be thn V- atnres. Wednesday, October sth, haa been fixed upon aa the day at the horticultu ral fair when tho baby show is to take place. Last year thia wae one of the leading features of the fair, when about 100 little youngaterß were on exhibition. Thia year's crop of babies holda ita own with last, and the list should be larger. There are several new ideas to be intro duced at the coming abow. There are to be three walking couteata. One for tubiea under 2 years, one for those 18 months, and one for those under 12 months. The best walker in each class will receive a handsome prize. A premium of $15 ia offered to trip lets. It ie rumored that a doctor'a cer tificate will be required, warranting en triee to be genuine triplets, so that no deaigning motbera can get up a baby pool and capture the prize. T h s management haa not succeeded in finding three men brave enough to act aa judges, but hopes to before the 3d. There are now eight entries for the beauty show and several enquiries. The number required i 8 15, and it ia to be hoped they will be found, for tbis prom ises to be one of the beat drawing cards of the fair. Every evening there will be a change of programme. Some Chinese jugglers, swordsmen and tumblers have been en gaged. Also a club of burnt cork art ists. There are quite a number of entries in the atudent'a type-writing conteat, but the experts ao far have been very aby. MAY AND DECB.MBKR. Whitelaw Reld'a Nirce Marries Judge Harrison, of California.
