A Strange Suicide.
Cincinnati, 0., December 1.-Cor
orner Weaver has rendered a
verdict in the case of C. A. Parker,
vic- 'resident of the Cincinnati,
Hamilton and Dayton and Pere Mar
quette railroads, who died here sud
denly in his -fice, November 19,
fnding that death was caused by
suicide with prussic acid.
Mr. Parker's death at the time was
supposed to be from natural causes
and the body was taken to St. Louis
for burial. It was discovered after
wards that just before his death he
had placed in his desk all valuables
carried on his person. He was seern
to step behind a screen where the
water cooler was situated and where,
presumably, he swallowed the poison.
He walked back toward the railing
that separated his desk from the rest
of the room, asked a clerk to open
the wicket gate for him, stumbled and
fell, and in a iewv minutes was dead.
On the day of Mr. Parker's burial
and almost at the hour of his funeral,
Miss Elsie Gesterling died by her own
hand in Chicago. It developed that
she had been his stenographer in
Denver, where Parker's attentions to
the girl caused comment. The hus
band of Miss Gesterling's mother
said after lis step-daughter's death
that he believed Parker and Miss Ges
terling had agreed to die together.
It was shown that just previous to
Parker's death the latter had visited
Miss Gesterling in Chicago. After
these developments the coroner de
cided to hold an inquest.
