SELF SLAUGHTERERS.
The Suicide Club Mystery Is

That patient merit of t'je unworthy lakes.
When he himself might his quietus make
With v bare bodkin?
Thus reasoned Hamlet, the melancholy
Dane, on t-'ms does Shakespeare represent
him as having reasoned. And thus lias
many ft noble soul reasoned from the dawn
of civili." al ion until now. And the verdict
of the greatestireasonem has by no means
been unanimous. Almost the oldest tradi
tion in Japanese literature is that of "The
Sever. Konun," who killed themselves in
turn because their chief had been dis
graced, and the latest sensation in New
York is the suicide of J. Barlow Moore
head, who left a note saying he had killed
himself "as per club,"
Let the cold truth be acknowledged. The
suicide club is an unquestionable fact.
It has been known from the dawn of his
tory. It Invariably appears in a certain
stage of each successive civilization. It
exists today not only among the Japanese
and the fanatical religious sects of Russia,
but equally among the wild Malays and
the most cultured citizens of the United
States, England and France,
Nor is it easy to refute the arguments
employed. Hamlet decided that he could
not kill himself because the Everlasting
had fixed his endon against self slaughter,
but the Russian fanatics say there is no
.such prohibition in I lie Bible, and the agnos
tics care not if there is. Their reasoning is
simple aud in this wise: A man's life is his
personal property, and his disposal of it is
nobody else's concern; if a man fails in
business in this country he has a perfect
right to go to some other country and start
again. Why not to some other world if he
sees fit?
So reasoned the men who organized the
much disputed Suicide club of Bridgeport,
Conn., in fSS-!. There were nine of them,
und they threw dice for the "first man
out," as they phrased it. The lot fell on
Wax Heisterhagen, saloon keeper, and that
night lie shot himself. A year nnd four
months later William Mickel, sign paint
er, of t bis cUib, cut bis throat. About the
same time another member, Kari Roberts,
went mad, nnd today lie is in a lunatic
asylum. Next Joint Kinzie, keeper of the
saloon where the club was organized, shot
himself, and then in turn George Leaven
worth, journalist, wok laudanum; Wen-
a suicide club banquet.
dell Baum, hotel man, cut his throat, and
William Maybie, letter carrier, did the
tame. But two members of that alleged
club remain alive, and they refuse either
to affirm or deny the original agreement
They simply say, "If I choose to kill my
self it is nobody's business!"
Next to attract attention was the famous
Whitechapel club of Chicago. One of its
members committed suicide not long ago,
and by will left his body to the club, which
burned it on a pyre at night with strange,
uncanny ceremonies. The charge is now
made that inside this Whitechapel club
there is a suicide club; that it has a branch
in Philadelphia consisting of seventeen ,
members; that Barlow Monrehead was a 1
member of this branch nnd hilled himself
according to previous agreement, the time
determined by lot, Such things are equally
hard to prove or disprove, Let us see what
history has to offer in support of the tup
position.
In the troublous times in Greece and
Borne'suicide was the heroic road out of
the world, nnd every man of mark who
knew that relentless enemies wi re on his
track carried concealed poison, sometimes
iv the jewel of a ring, sometimes in a cane
or penstock. Demosthenes chewed Ids pen
while studying the words of his last let ter
and presently fell dead from the poison
thus taken. Hannibal sucked final release
from .1 jeweled ring. Seneca tried bleeding
iv a hot bath, and that failing had bin,self
suffocated by charcoal fumes. Brutus anil
Cassius fell on their swords. But the list
would fill columns. Every one litis read
the story of that noble Roman who gave
notice in the forum that he had a tree on
which more great men had hanged them
selves than on any other tree in Italy, but
as ho intended to cut it down on the ap
proaching calends all persons desirous of
availing themselves of the honor of a death
thereon must act at once.
It is sometimes stated that the religion
cf the Jews forbade self slaughter, butthey
often departed in that way. Josephus
gives an interesting account of a club of
forty, each of whom was to be killed by the
next, but the last two decided to back out.
It is a pity Josephus was such a liar, for
the story is very Jewish and goodenough to
ha true. Summing it all up we can say
this: There undoubtedly have been gnat
epidemics of suicide; there certainly have
been suicide clubs in past ages; there as
certainly are suicidal societies in Russia,
ItHiia and Malaysia today, aud there is
very strong evidence that such clubs exist
in the United States.

WHERE THE FARMER IS ROBBED.
now (*M o)mmm.. House Takes Toll
r ft> Ik* Farmer's Corn.
° m ' { jrWtr sells his corn in England,
and, 0 wan ts things rather than
?. 10r and as many things are cheap in
r -tfi'ihiid-, ho concludes to take his pay
na&twJwaro, woolen clothing, blankets,
/ -i ,i< h, paints, oils, glass, salt, cordage,
' hats, crockery, cotton ties and other
like articles, and starts for home by way
of New York. There is no man with a
gun behind a bush on the wharf to lie
in wait for him, but there is another
man, armed with something better than
a gun, who tells tho farmer that he
must give np more than half the value
of all the filings he has received in pay
ment for his corn before ho can come
into possession of tho other half.
If ho does not pay quickly, or if he
makes any fuss about the charges, this
other man will tiike the whole, and not
unlikely put tho farmer in jail. If the
farmer could pay in things instead of
money and had taken salt iv exchange
for his corn, then for every 100 bushels
ho would have had to bring and give up
seventy-three additional bushels. For
every yard of tho cheap >st carpet he
would have had three-qi iters of a yard
cutoff, und if he had cotton ties each lie
would be shortened to the extent of 00
per cent. If he had taken tho common
eat hind of china plates or cups, then in
order to carry a dozen of them home he
would have had to pay for eighteen.
If our government needed to impose
and collect such taxes in order to meet
its necessary expenditures there would
ho some justification for such procedure.
But revenue was not the object sought
for in the enactment of the laws which
authorize or require them, but the re
| strictions of trade to prevent the farmer
j from selling his products to the best ad
vantage. In short, carry out logically
and to their fullest extent McKinley's
views about industry, and you would
have every man trying to produce a
I good deal and sell as little as possible.—
David A. Wells in American Journal of
Politics.
WANTS FREE WOOL.
A Massachusetts Hrpul>lic:in Editor Out
of Sympathy with Mclvinleyisiii.
The American Wool and Cotton Re
porter, the leading journal of the spin
ning and weaving industries in this
j country, which is edited by A prominent
| Republican member of the Massachu-
I setts legislature, has grown very weary
jof McKinleyism. 'While The Reporter
believes iv a moderate protective tariff
lit is not blind to what it frankly calls
tbe "monopolistic tendency" of the Re
publican parly under McKinley's sway.
"The American people," says The Re
porter, "believe the tariff has served a
useful purpose, and that it is something
which they should now begin to grow
out of in a moderate and reasonable
manner, with due regard to till vested in
terests, and to the welfare of even those
people employed in industries which
have been turned into unwholesome
channels by unwise tariH laws."
The particular kind of tariff reform
which The Reporter wants is found in
the Democratic proposition to make
wool free. It adds; "With free v.xul
and a moderate tariff upon woolen goods
the United States would beat the world
on manufactured woolens of every de
scription. We should c xport enormous
and constantly increasing quantities of
mutton and lamb, and we should send
abroad large amounts of medium wool,
which would be laid down at a hand
some profit to our farmers in the mar
kets of continental Europe."
That the views of this journal are in
dorsed by other Massachusetts Repub
licans is boldly asserted in the following
words: "There can bo no question that
there has been a considerable revolt
among the Republicans of Massachu
setts against the extreme high tariff
views represented by t he McKinley bill."
Peek in 1889 and in ISO 2.
When Commissioner Peck was inves
tigating the cause of increased wages in
lfr'Ss he put to the labor unions tho fol
lowing question: "Do you attribute the
increase of wages, if any in your trade,
to organization?" This question was
sent to 820 unions and was answered by
577 of them. Of those unions answer
ing the question 412 gave their mem
bership, aggregating 63,800 members,
and the other 189 did not state the
number of members. Mr. Peck says
that these 577 unions answered "with
directness, and for the most part with
earnestness, that they do attribute in
crease of wages to organization."
Yet in 1599 Mr. Peck rushes to th
conclusion that the increase in wages
last year was due to the McKinley law
—a conclusion which labor unions ev
erywhere are rejecting as absurd.
Condemned by an Eminent Republican.
Judge T. M. Cooley, one of the ablest
constitutional lawyers produced by this
country, and himself a Republican, has
the following to say of the protective
principle in his work on "Constitutional
Limitations:''
Constitutionally a tax can have no
other basis than the raising of revenues
for public purposes, and whatever gov
ernmental exaction has not this basis
is tyrannical and unlawful. A tax on
imports, therefore, the purpose of which
is not to raise revenue, but to discourage
and indirectly prohibit some particular
import for tho benefit of some home
manufacturer, may well be questioned
as being merely colorable, and therefore
not warranted by constitutional prin
ciples.
The issue of issues is class legislation,
of which the protective tariff is the most
conspicuous example. It is the parent
of intimidation and bribery, of plutoc
racy and pauperism. The force bill is
only a means to an end, and the end is
the establishment and maintenance of
an aristocracy of wealth.—St. Louis
Post-Dispatch.
All good Harrisonians and McKinley
ites agree that a high tariff is good
because it puts j (I "' N ! n J prices.

Then Outspoke » Bachelor.
They were very pretty, and there was
apparently five or six years'difference in
their ages. As the tram pulled up at Rus
sey, out on tho A. K. D., the younger girl
blushed. Battened her nose nervously
•gainst the window ami drew back in joy
ous smiles as a young man came dashing
into the car, shook bands tenderly and
cordially, insisted on carrying her valise,
magazine, paper bundle, and would proba
bly have carried her bad she let him.
The passengers smiled as she left, and
the munner went rippling through the
coach, "They're engaged."
• The ether girl sat looking nervously out
of the window, and onoe or twice gathered
her parcels together as though she would
leave the car, yet seemed to be expecting
someone.
At last he came. He bulged into the
door like a house on lire, looked along tho
seals until his manly gaze fell upon the
upturned, expectant face, roared "Come
on; I've been waiting for you on the plat
form for fifteen minutes," grabbed her
basket nnd strode out of the car, while she
followed with ft little valise, a bandbox, a
paper bag full of lunch, a birdcage, aglass
jar of jelly preserves and an extra shawl.
And a crusty looking old bachelor In tlie
fan her end of the car croaked out, in uni

sengers, "They're married."—Richmond

To Bis "Dourest Love."
There was oue young person possessed of
a pretty face, a kind* heart and an all ab
sorbing desire to do Something to assist
her fellow beings. After some eloquent
p, rsuasion Bhe obtained t he consent: of her
family to enter a hospital to study fur tiie
work of a trained nurse.
Among the pretty enthusiast's first pa
tients was a young man with a broken arm
and of an attractive appearance. The de
mure, white capped nurse began to take an
unusual interest in him, aud asked him
one day if there was nothing she could do
for him—no book she could read, no letter
she could write. The patient gratefully
accepted the latter offer, and the nurse pre
pared to writs from his dictation.
He began with a tender addressj to his
"dearest love," and the little nurse felt
slightly embarrassed. But she continued
through tbe most ardent declarations of
all absorbing affection to the end, where he
wished to be subscribed an adoring lover
for all time. Then she folded the letter
aud slipped it into its envelope.
"To whom shall I direct it ?" she asked.
The wicked young man said amiably and
even tenderly:
"What is your name, please?"
