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
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
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

few dajs.
Glen Echo "The Daughter of the
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
"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.

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
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.

New York, Aug. 11. 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.

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

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.
