bullet wound in the abdomen, while
he was engaged in a quarrel in Co
lumbus, Ohio, u It. was known that
he suffered constantly from this
wound and frequently took morphine
to ease the pain. He had a number
of operations performed, but none
of them seemed to do him any
good. Last spring he went to Ben
ton Harbor, Mich, in search of re
lief, but did not succeed in getting
it. It was common report that
lie had tried a number of times to
kill himself, but the truth of that
could not be learned. The dispatch
from Ft. "Wayne says that yesterday
just before he died he received a
letter from a, girl in Decatur, Iud.,
who signed herself Bessie. He had
no relatives in Ft. Wayne, and was
waiting table in a restaurant there.
His . former associates in Richmond
did not seem to be surprised when
they were informed of his death last
night and a number of them said
that he had often made the threat
to eml his life on account of his suf
fering. It. could not be ascertained
whether his brothers had been noti
fied of the death or not. The cor
orner of Allen county will hold an
inquest today to determine whether
or not. the young man committed sui
cide. The body will probably be
brought t this city for burial.
