Mathews, a bac helor farmer, about 65 years of age, committed suicide, at his home, near Warnock8jhairman, 1408 II street, N. W Station, Belmont county, j'esterday, He lived with John Barrett, an ur. cle bf Auditor Barrett, who married a niece of Matthews. The cause of the suicide is not stated. Matthews ate his dinner as usual yesterday, and in the afternoon went out and no one'thought anything about him until he failed to show up in the evening. Search being made he was found hanging to a beam in the barn, life entirely extinct, Matthews was a very wealth j- man, owning not less than three large farms in this coun ty and having considerable money besides. 'He was an eceentric sort of man, was never particular about having his land tilled, so that his farms are very rich soil.' Despon dency was the . prime cause of the suicide, it is supposed. He . had a large swelling on his neck and was getting old, and being 6f a miserly disposition it was grinding on him to part with money for his happiness and comfort. Ben inter 27 th inxt, yine democratic campaign book, prepared under the auspices of the Democratic Executive Committ ee, is now in the hands of the prin ter, and will soon be ready for dis tribution. The committee has not resorted to the Republican methods of levying assessments upon office holders for their campaign expenses, nor has any officeholder in the Uni ted Siates been requ ested to contrib ute a cent. Such contributions have in no case been received. The book will contain a spicy review of the past administration of the Govern ment under Republican rule, an.d will discuss a number of subjects of contemporaneous importance. It will contain an exhaustive history of former abuses of the Pension Of-' fice and of the prostitution to party ends of thic bureau, which was or ganized for the dispensation .of the people's money to the people's sol diery. . It will contain a discussion of the squandering of the public domain by the Republican party, and of the recent movements inaugurated by Democrats to restore it to the orig inal owners, the people. It will dis cuss the . Civil Service as abused heretofore and as administeren by President Cleveland. It will contain valuable matter touching the admin istration of the Land Oflioe and the conduct of the Indian- affairs. It will be valuable in the discussion of labor problems, containing a chap ter on that Biibject and on the re cent legislation affecting it It will discuss past delinquencies of respon sible officers and agents of the Gov ernment, and indicate the correction of abuses in that line. , - ; , It will contain a summary of the ac tion of the last Congress touching matters of importance to the people, and make a fair exhibit of the re sults accomplished. It will give a history of the war on the President by the Senate and the surrender by that body of the false issue whic h it had raised for political ends. In short, the book will be a fair and truthful presentation of political matters. The committee is not in possess ion of funds to. enable it to distribute the book gratuitously. In order that the volume may be thor- ioughly distributed the committee has determined to -send it prepaid by mail to anj- person who will make . i,'iM,t;,-otinTi rln.fifnr nml ti-inaiviit ' application incrcior anu ii.insmiv. the Slim of $1.
