laughed before. Business cares vanish,
physical troubles are forgotten, and all the
spectators give themselves tip to the de
light of an entertainment which is at once
instructive and amusing, ever refined,
and free from all traces of vulgarity. On
Monday night one lady will be admitted

About half-past six o'clock yesterc]^
morning a West Wheeling man by he
name of Bbeling. while coming across the
river to go to early church on this side
found the body of a man floating in th
river about three or four feet trom the
shore, just above the mouth of Caldwells
run. , _,
He brought the body to the shore and
notified Coroner Schultze of his discover}.
A few minutes afterward the bank was
crowded with people. Coroner Schultze
examined the body and found it to l»o
that of William Stewart, a well known
bricklayer, who lives at the head of
Twelfth street. ^
The body was removed to Frank
Schroeder’s undertaking establishment,
on South Chapllne street, where an inquest
was held by the Coroner y> sterday after
noon. The body was in an excellent state
of preservation, and it was the opinion of
the undertaker, physician and Coroner
that it had. not btvn in the water more
than two or three hours.
A friend of the family who was present
at the inquest gave evidence that proved (
pretty conclusively that the deceased died
by committing suicide. He stated that
Stewart, while a good workman, had been
out of work all winter ana nuu
very despondent and had started to drink
ing. He is not supposed, however, to have
been drinking just previous to his death.
For several months he has tried to get
work, and has made several trips to get
work elsewhere. His family were in sore
straits, and he went to Pittsburg recently
to make a final attempt to get work, but
failed, and returned home on Saturday
very down-hearted. His wife states that
he was more down-hearted than usual,
and shortly after midnight left home, after
bidding her and the children all good-bye.
telling them that they would never sec
His wife supposed that he intended to
leave on another trip, and did not attach,
particular importance to his statement.
Stewart was a Scotchman, about forty
years of age. He has been living in this
country about seven years, and leaves a
wife an<l seven children In very poor cir
cumstances. He was a member of tho
local bricklayers' union, and from a card
found in his clothes is supposed to be a
member of tho Ohio Valley Renefit Asso
ciation. Coroner Schultz* did not finish
his inquest until last evening. It was
thought at first that Stewart’s death may
have been due to an accident, caused by
attempting to jump a freight train, and to
have roiled down over the hank. Bruises
were found under the left eye. which
looked like the imprint of a person's fist,
but there is no plausible evidence that
Stewart came to his death except by de
liberately drowning himseif. If he hail
fallen from a train, his body would have

found is very steep and covered with sharp
