When the returns from the "Wes
Jeyan News" election were announced
last Tuesday evening one of the
most important events of the while
school rear was ended. By a large ma
jority. Herbert Jeffrey, a freshman,
was elected business manager and C.
E Hagie editor for next year. The
contest for business manager was ex
ceptionally spirited for the reason that
this office is usually reserved for the
members of the two upper classes, ana
it was somewhat unusual for a fresh
man to make the race. The significance
of the election lies in the fact that it is
the only school honors bestowed by
popular choice. Two representatives
are chosen from each of the six liter
ary societies and these meet with the
old staff and nominate four candidates
for the two offices. Each paid sub
scriber to the "News" is entitled to
a vote.
The "News" says in part:— The
new business manager, Mr. Jeffry,
will only rank sophomore next year.
While he has not been here for a very
long time, he has, however, demon
strated his worth and ability on the
"News" staff and won the confidence
of all who know him. He was chosen
by Kamline literarv society to All
the vacancv caused bv the resignation
of Mr. Otto last February. That he
did his work well is shown, by his
large majority. Mr. Jeffry has taken a
very active '•part in school activities
since his entrance last September. He
is treasurer of his class, on the lecture
course committee, member of the inter
ssoiety debating team athletic editor
of "News," a member of Phi Delta
Theta fraternity. It is felt by all that
the business end of the school paper
will be well administered next year.

A. W. Slaught, Coroner.
The above is the vlrdict of the coro
ner's jury, In the case of the death of
Lew H. Young. The finding sets aside
all dotjbt as to suicide being the in
tent and establishes the fact that the
overdose of gelsemium was uninten
tional and taken as a nerve sedative.
The inquest was held at the Daggett
Undertaking parlors late yesterday
Afternoon and this morning, an ad
journment being necessary because of
the failure of one witness to appear.
Dr. Brockman's Testimony.
The fiftt witness to be called to the
stand to testify before the three
Jurors was Dr. D. C. Brockman who
attended Mr. Young immediately after
it was found that the drug was over
coming his weakened nerves. Dr.
Brockman stated that death was due
to paralysis of the respiratory organs,
this being caused by an overdose of
tincture of gelesemium. He stated that
he was told by those present that Mr.
Young had taken an ounce of the
liquid but from his own connection
with the case he was unable to
state how much he had taken.
Dr. Brockman also declared
that one-eighth of the amount
taken by Young is sufficient to be
fatal to the ordinary man. He fur
ther asserted that from what was
said, he was summoned a short time
after Dr. Floyd Newell reached the
scene but did not arrive until per
haps a half hour later. By the time
he started to work applying stimulants
to Mr. Young, every bit of the gelsem
ium had been removed from his stom
ach. The cause of death the doctor
stated was paralysis of the respira
tory organs. Further than what he
had heard and his experience while
there Dr. Brockman stated he knew
nothing of the case..
Floyd Testifies.
William B. Floyd, who was at the
bedside of Mr. Young when life de
parted and who declares he has been
taking care of Young for the past
week, was the next to take the stand.
He told of conditions and circum
stanccs surrounding the death of Mr,
Young. He declared that Mr,
had sent for him to come and had. in
fact, kept the telephone line busy for
five or six hours before he finally got
him. Floyd stated that Mr. Young
wanted him to take care of him until
he was able to he out. Accordingly
Floyd came to Ottumwa and proceed
ed to comply with the request. He
stated that Tuesday was the first time
a physician was summoned for Mr.
Young and that Dr. J. B. Wilson was
the one Mr. Young wanted to attend
him. The witness then stated that
Mr. Young had been drinking some
what and that his nerves were un
steady from the effects, making it nec
essary to give him a concoction to
carry him along until he had recov
Gives All Details.
Dr. Wilson left some tablets, said
Mr. Floyd, and ordered that Mr. Young
be given no more liquor. Yesterday
morning Mr. Young went down to the
Ballingall pharmacy, Floyd asserted
and when later joined by him (Floyd)
Mr. Young stated that he had not
taken anything to drink but had taken
a little something to brace him and
carry him along untjl he got better.
In a short time Floyd asserted, Mr.
Young remarked that perhaps he had
taken too much of the stuff, but no at
tention was paid to it because Mr.
Young was acquainted with drugs and
knew what he was taking. They then
went to their rooms above the Black
restaurant where Mr. Young again
made the remark, stating that he felt
like he had taken too much. In a
few moments he asked Floyd and then
Mrs. Young to feel the thumping of his
heart. Mr. Floyd declared it was beat
ing like a trip-hammer and then Mrs.
Young immediately telephoned for Dr.
Newell, who arrived fifteen minutes
later. When it was seen that such was
the case the liquid was removed from
his stomach. Mr. Young gradually
sank away however and finally bade
"Floyd good bye, declaring it was all
ofT for him. He asked that Floyd look
after Mamie (his wife) and babies.
Mr. Floyd stated that at no time
did Mr. Young ever so much as men
tion taking his own life. He declar
ed that no one ever saw a man want
to live as. did Mr. Young and that he
would take anything if he thought
that this end could be accomplished.
He declared that Mr. Young had taken
milk because it was the doctor's or
ders when he knew it was gagging him
and he had to force it down. But
never has he ever so much as hinted
that he would take his own life. Be
cause of the non-appearance of the
other witnesses summoned the in
quest was adjourned to meet this
morning at 9 o'clock.
Newell On Stand.
When the inquest was resumed this
Dark days come when the kidneys

You awake tired, lame and sore. It
Is a task to get dressed. It hurts so to

morning. Dr. Floyd Newell, who was
first summoned to the bedside of Mr.
Young, was called to the stand. He
stated that jfloyd produced an ounce
bottle, containing a few drops
semium and stated that Mr. Young
had taken the entire contents. Dr.
Newell stated that although hyper
dermics were administered, Mr. Young
lapsed into unconsciousness and was
in that state when Dr. Brokman ar
rived. In regard to Floyd'® attack on
Dr. Brockman, he stated that Dr.
Brockman tried to get Floyd away
from Mr. Young that he might cause
artificial respiration, but Floyd was
bending over Young and refused to
leave. When Dr. Brockman persisted
in his leaving so he could work with
Mr. Young, Dr. Newell stated that
Floyd- began to curse him and finally
struck him. The physician also stated
that he did not believe gelsemium was
a drug which would be taken for
suicidal purposes, and that he did not
believe that Mr. Young, a reliable
pharmacist, would take what he is said
to have taken, an ounce of the tinc
ture. He further declared that Mr.
Young has never as much as hinted
that he would take his own life.
Black Corroborates.
When William Black, the proprietor
of the restaurant, gave his testimony
his statements were corroborative
of what other witnesses had stated
and in conclusion, he told the jury
that he was sure the overdose was
accidental, with no thought of suicide.
The jury then prepared its: verdict,
declaring the death was accidental.
Mrs. Young Makes Statement.
In a statement made this morning
to the Courier, Mrs. Lew H. Young
took issue with the story of Mr.
Young's death as published in last
night's edition of the Courier, saying
that the account did an injustice to
her and her children, and, to Mr.
Floyd In that the account did not tell
all that should have been told In or
der that the public could understand
the circumstances surrounding the
death of Mr. Young. She stated:
Young "People will ask why Mr. Young
was living at the Black restaurant at
the time of his death, for the story
gives the impression that I was there
only during the last hours of my hus
band's life. This is not the true state
of facts. Our children and I were all
with Mr. Young since we took up our
residence over the Black restaurant
last week, and had been with him
throughout most of his illness as well
as at the last moments of his life. We
have been living in the front suite of
rooms over the Black restaurant since
last week for the restaurant is Jointly
owned by Mr. Black, Mr. Floyd' and
my husband, and what is more natural
than our living there? I feel that in
justice to my children and myself, the
public should know all of the facts.
"Those who knew my husband are
aware that his health has been poor
for the past two years. An injustice is
done Mr. Floyd in this regard for
there was a ten days' vigil at my hus
band's side, during which time little
no sleep could be taken by Mr.
Floyd, and this is responsible for his
overstrained nerves. The friendship
between my husband and Mr. Floyd
was of long standing and such a one
that on an occasion some weeks ago
when Mr. Floyd was taken ill at his
home in Waterloo, Mr. Young went to
his side and took care of him.
"Hpnce it can be readily seen that
the motives that inspired Mr. Floyd to
come to my husband's bedside would
not permit of anything that could
sibly reflect on tny huBband, myseli
or our children, and I deplore that he
should be placed in any other than
the proper light before the public."
Funeral services will be held tomor
row afternoon at 4 o'clock from the
residence of Nick Baker, 632 East
Second street, conducted by the Rev.
W. C. Hengen, rector of the Trinity
Episcopal church. The pall bearers
