THE TIMES, WASHINGTON. FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1895. HE IS TIRED OF LIFE .Jaraes N. Suddntb Snicidcs hy Shooting Near Glen Echo. TflE CAUSE IS A MYSTERY iHc Mny Ilnvc Been In Finmiciul Trouble. "While There Are Sllclit Indication That It Mlfflit linve Ileen Uccnnie He llnd Siiflercil n UiMippoliititient in Lote James Newman Sudduth, twenty-five years of age, a clerk employed by the Goodyear Rubber Company, ended his lire yesterday morning by shooting him self In the head. His. lifeless body was found on the tow path of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, near the bridge leading to Sycamore Isl and, and not far from the Glen Echo junction of the Great Falls Electric Rail way. -No motive Is assigned for the deed, and his friends say they are at a loss to explain his action. There are indications, however, that there is a young lady In the case. The only Information left by the dead man in explanation of his rea so for wanting to die was a newspaper, on which there had been scribbled with a pencil several sentences, many of which were unintelligible. This paper was found lying on the chest of the dead man. On the margin, in one corner, was writ ten "Dear Aue." while in the oppofcite corner was scrawled the following: "Dear Ones at Homer For over a week past I have been laboring under a great mental strain, which I can stand no longer. I therefore end my existence. God will forgive me. Tender love to all my ac Quaintances." Underneath this was written, "Lonely I die, thinking of whom I was to -wed." The word "funds" faintly scribbled over some printing, when connected with the reference to an intended marriage, is be lieved to suggest that it was a lack of funds that caused the mental strain re ferred to. Somewhere else was written the name "Joe "W. Hoover," and in an other place it was stated that his insur ance policy was in the safe at the store. Jt was about seven o'clock in the morn "ing that Conductor Bllncoe noticed a young man who boarded the Great Falls electric car ait Georgetown. He seemed much amused or was laboring under a forced cheerfulness. His actions attract ed the conductor's attention and he ob served as the car moved along toward Glen Echo that his passenger held a newspaper up in front of his face in an unusual way. Subsequent developments showed that it was at this lime that Sudduth was writing his last farewell to his friends. At the Junction the young- min sudden ly jumped from his seat, and, while the car was still in motion leaped to the ground. He immediately plunged into the woods south of the Conduit road. At this point a path leads toward the canal and in the direction of Svcamore Isl and. A bridge spans the canal and en the south side of the towpath. It was here that Samuel Deeble. a colored .a nalman, found the body of a man with a bullet wound in his head. This was about one hour after the stranger had left the electric car. Only a short time before, Edward Jones, colored, employed at the clubhouse on the island, heard two pistol shots, when he started to investigate the cause. He reached the body soon after Deeble and noticed the revolver lying in the mud and the nwspaper spread over the man's chest. The alarm was given and several county officials responded. The man was dressed in a blue serge suit of clothes, wore a. dark derby hat and tan shoes. A pocketbook was founa but there was no money in it. He had a line gold watch, attached to which was a Masonic charm. A number of cards with the name of James Newman Sud duch were alto discovered and this led to the suicide's identity. Deputy Sheriff Peyton summoned Jus tice of the Peace Claud, and after an ex amination the information was sent to the Georgetown Police Station. Then George Suddath, his brother, was located and Informed of the tragic death. The body was moved from the towpath and viewed by Conductor Bllncoe and Motor man Hell, who both Indentified It as that of their caxly morning passenger. After an investigation an inquest was held and a verdict of suicidal death ren dered. George Sudduth went to the junc tion and arranged for the removal of the remains to Undertaker Birch's establish ment on M Street, in Georgetown. Among the effects of the deceased was found a small catalogue of F. p. May & Co. Inquiry of the firm elic ited the information that Sudduth had called -there and stated that he was about to go in the grocery business and wanted to arrange for the purchase of some seed. He was communicated with and the cata logue &int him. At the Goodyear Rubber Company the employes s:oke in the highest terms .of young Sudduth. He boarded at Xo. 928 K Street northwest, and was not known to either drink or use tobacco. He was at the store until after closing time Wednesday evening and when he left he bade one of his fellow clerks goodbye In the usual manner and his actions indi cated nothing unusual.

Dr. Cowden Yields to a Popular Rate on the Re quest of a Multitude of Applicants The Offer Limited to the Month of AugustThe Treat ment That Cures Prescribed and Adminis tered in All Oases Nothing Cheap But the Price. What $3 a flonth Means. When Dr. Cowden offered a free month to all patients taking up a regular course of treat ment, he- felt satisfied that this method of pro cedure would co-t less and result in mo-e cure? than any other plan that cculd be adopted for the wnson mest fjorahle to the treatment of catarrhal diseases. That hundreds of buflcrers thought the same is evidenced by the large number that took adantagc of his generous of fer, and arc now under this mild, curative method of medication. It seems that the free month method invched a slightly greater immediate outlay of money than was possible to be met by a great many people, who were not only anxious to take treat ment, but whose ca'cie absolutely needed imme diate attention. All this has resulted in a great and popular demand for a rate that could be paid by the neople in general. Furthermore, the I knowledge that Dr. Cowelin had for the past two summers extended a ?3.00 rjtc for a limited pe riod, lias resulted in his receiving requests to renew that offer by a number of people which runs well into tht hundreds. There Las neer been a time during the three jca:s that Doctor Cowden has been established in this city that he has not always been willing to accede to what, in his opinion, would result in the greatest good to the greatest number. lie was the first to establish tliU principle of practice in this city snd will aluajs be the first to meet the just and honest requirements of its people. With this gteat object in iev he makes the following effer and requests that pa tients needing and anxious to be given treat ment apply at once, for two reasons, first, that they may get advantage of all warm weather pos sible and second to avoid the usual rush and crowd that alwajs take place during the last few dajs. AT THE THEATERS. Glen Echo "The Daughter of the Iti-firliiient." In these days of '"wars and rumors of wars" nothing; could have been more appropriate than last night's rendering of "The Daughter of the Regiment," by the Jaxon Opera Company at Glen Echo. A goodly portion of local amusement lovers seemed to realize this fact, for they turned out en masse, filling the big amphitheater comfortably, and ap plauding; nearly every number in the opera. "The Daughter of the Regiment" is one of those tuneful works that in some way or other is lost in the lapse of time, and brought only at rare intervals, when some musical antiquary, eager for additions to his repertoire, remembers its existence. It is only then that the public notes the picturesque qualities of the piece and its general beauty. Don nizetti's opera abounds in daintily-catchy airs that are sure to fill the mind of its auditors for days after they hear it. The story is novel, and often delightfully quaint, while the chances for excellent work, both vocal and histrionic, are nu merous. The work of the company last night was, as usual, of the highest order. The offering was cast to advantage, and the individual work could hardly have been improved upon. Six of the principal parts were in the hands of Payne Clarke. Mile. Diard, William Carleton, Louise Engel. Winfred Goff. and Bertha Lehman. The chorus looked attractive and sang well, while the staging given the piece was nil that could have been desired. "The Daughter of the Regiment" will be the bill all the rest of this week. i Xatinnnl Clevclaml-AVil.'Hon'w Mln- BtrelH. There were thirty-two adjectives used on the programs last night at the New National Theater, when one, judiciously placed, would have served the purpose quite as well. The Cleveland-Wilson Min strels are, on the whole, very good in deed. There were faults, as there are in everything, and some of the enjoyable passages were carried to a point where patience ceased to be a virtue, but the show was well balanced and so much above the standard in most particulars that one could even forgive the excessive number of war jokes brought out and the age of thoe quips which did not dab ble in .the present difficulty. The audience present and it was a large one, if some what top heavy appeared to appreciate everything and applaud, regardless of consequences. One's Initial impression of the perform ance Is bound to be a favorable one. A great deal of money has been spent in mounting the first part, and the result is a scene of tastiness and elegance that cannot fail to catch the eye. Almost si multaneously an effort is made to reach the ear, though it is by no means espe cially successful. The best thing that can be said of the Cleveland-Wilson orches tra is that it is industrious no band of musicians could try harder or more con scientiously to spoil an entertainment. Finally, the minstrels themselves were introduced and the fun began. Despite its brilliancy, the first part was one of the kind dear to the hearts of all who have memories of old-time circles. Though the bones and tambourines were conspicuous by their absence, the end men were there, and they did their best to please. Burt Marion, Billy Pearl, E. M. Hall, and John Queen worked hard and had the satisfaction of winning laughter out of jokes that certainly were not more recent than the 'Farmers' Al manac" of twenty years ago. After each of the sallies between the comedians and Interlocutor George Shields occurred a more or less pleasing musical specialty. Mr. Marion -and his partner, Mr. Pearl, gave a comic ditty that would have been funnier could they have made themselves heard; Mr. Hall rendered the ever-popular "Nigger, Nigger, Never Die;" Lewis Powers and Charles Weber contributed two ballads, and a quartet, composed of Messrs. AVlxon, Powers, Johnson, and Shields, sang the usual formula with a banjo imitation at the end that is far superior to anything of the sort yet heard in this city. George Wilson and Billy Emerson were the final additions to the circle, and each managed to tell a few characteristic rib-ticklers before the curtain fell. Mr. AVilson introduced a cake walk that is a novelty in its way and won a hearty recall with it. After three discordant minutes with Claude Menkee- and his collective "solo ists," the olio work was taken up by E. M. Hall, who gave a history of the banjo, its inventor and himself, before beginning what turned out to be a wonderful per formance on that instrument. He did a number of new things in a new way and wound up by playing a unique jig that kept tho house calling for him for five minutes after his exit. The quartette al ready named contributed a neat turn filled with good music, and Billy Emerson ap peared to deliver his ancient monologue and repeat some imitations held over from the first part. He also sung "If I Could Only Pick the Winner," as ho did "some eighteen years ago." If Mr. Em erson has paid royalties on that song all. the time he has been using it one need not wonder that he is still working for a living. It is hard to conceive how a comedian of Mr. Emerson's peculiar abil ity can stick to matter so old. Swift and Chase, the next people on the bill, made a few poor instrumental so los their excuse for Introducing some ex cellent comedy, and George Wilson, as funny and a trifle more popular than ever before, made hia appearance. His material, like that of his rival -worker, was very antiquated, but his manner car ried it and brought him favor that did not even vanish when he brought forth a pocket edition of Anna Held's living The Offer.

Advancing markets for securities are proverbially bare of in cident and are rather uninteresting, bave, of course, to those who see their invest ments or speculative purchases enhanc ing in value. It is safe to say, further more, that today's market was interest ing also to those unfortunate speculators who, for one reason or another, found thembelves with commitments on the shorL side, for they received short shrift In today's buoyant trading. The market was one of uncommon breadth and strength, and these characteristics were based altogether upon the same factors that have been present in the situation for two weeks. Today's market, however, suggested that the circumstances in question had obtained a general recognition that has heretofore been missing, because It was evident that what Is styled outside Inter est was present in considerable propor tions today. It was chiefly the buying orders of commission houses under which the mar ket advanced today. No support came from the operations for foreign account, and the professional room traders were practically of one mind In considering the rise in prices overdone, and their ventures in the day's market were plainly conducted on this theory. The strength of the market was shown not so much in the extent or uniformity of advances as in its ability to with stand the heavy profit realizing sales and the constant hammering of the traders. Aside from the yet more definite pros pects for an early conclusion of peace, the day was bare of Important occurrences. Tho Government's monthly report on the growing crops met general expectations. the Improvement in condition of Spring wheat being to some extent offset by the deterioration in corn since the last re port. Competent authorities calculated a yield of wheat from the Government's fig ures of over COT.OOO.OGO bushels, as against a yield of 530,000.000 last year, and it was estimated that the Spring wheat crop would furnish 258,000,000 of this year's harvest. St. Paul and the Northern Pa cific shares were the features in respect of strength and activity, but tho transac tions elsewhere were notably heavy al so. The market was not withoutjits weak spots, Manhattan being the most note worthy, and in the afternoon Sugar Re fining broke sharply. The general mar ket also became rather heavy in the lat ter dealinss. Xevr York: StocU Market. Corrected daily by W. IS. Hibbi & Co., members of the New Yok Stock Kschan'c, U-J7 b' Street.

Kuooer pfd D9 W.-j i UbU Yesterday was one of the "off" days in the boom of the stock market. There was a good advance in the morning hours, but It was not well held during the later trading. London bought and the opening in New York followed "this1 le'ad. The weakening later seems to have been a profit-taking venture for the most part. The announcement made by some of the news agencies that the War Department had Issued orders suspending hostilities1, although It was not tne truth, had the look of truth for a time and made the street almost believe that the culmina tion of the peace negotiations had come. Those who had been trading for this alone took profits then and caused some what of a sag. It was noticeable, how ever, that there was no selling by the buyers of the last two weeks who have gone Into the market for investment. This shows the real strength of the market more than any temporary fluctuation. The Qflfl flfin Dnnk and DruS Inebriates re uUU.UUU stored by the Keeley Cure.

Je7-tl prospects for Immediate peace do not seem to bo any better today than they were yesterday. Indeed, the failure of Spain to authorize Cambon to sign the protocol had Its dampening effect on a few people who have not been entirely confident of Spain's good faith from the beginning. The weakness of Manhattan during the last week has been a matter of interest to many people who are fond of specu lating in the stock of the "Elevated." Seemingly the stock has no friends. Its downward path has been an uninterrupt ed one. Manhattan has many enemies, and is regarded by them as a stock that It is very much the better part of valor not to speculate in. It is so entirely con trolled by its clique that the outward seeming of the situation very often bears no relation to its movements. Just at present there is talk of the clique in this decline, and It may be that there will be a rally of sensational character before many days. On the other hand, there is quite as much probability that nothing of the kind will occur. It Is very cer tain that the preparations of-thc Metro politan Street Railroad to harfdle its traf fic by electric power is having a depress ing effect on Manhattan, ty Is thought that President Gould will take up the question of an electrical equipment for Manhattan next month, Immediately up on his return from Europe. 'it is possi ble that this will have a good effect on the stock. Some of his directors shrink at the expense, but he usually has his way in everything pertalningpto the road and it Is generally belleverj hat he Is con. vinced that the electrlcaKegulpment is an absolute necessity. " There has been great strength in North ern Pacific common receritly, and it is provable that there will ibe rumors of a dividend for the stock in the next few days, as there always Is when a stock has a good advance. There is no reason to believe that such, araove is contem plated by the directors, however. The earnings of the Missouri Pacific for the first week in Augu3t decreased $21,000. From January 1 the Increase has been 51,700,000. The earnings of Chesa peake and Ohio for the first week in August declined 519 000. vFrom July 1, the decline has been $21,000. The gross earn Ings of Waihasli for the first week of August increased $18,000. From July 1 tho increase has been $120,000. It is under stood that the annual report of the Chesapeake and Ohio, which will prob ably be issued early next week, will show over one per cent enrnid on the stock after charging operating expenses with large amounts expended for betterments and improvements. There is renewed talk of a probable re duction of the capitalization of the Gen eral Electric Company. The improving business of this company Is also a mat ter of considerable comment.

The alarm among shorts was started by messages from Kansas City and other points, reporting cash wheat up 2 cents to 4 cents a bushel. Here the cash market acted easier, until the last moment.

It was a narrow market, and the change of tone in tho last few minutes on the part of professionals made it look as if the news had suddenly turned. It was true that receipts were no larger.
