Charles Whitehead, of Homestead, 1
Sent a Bullet Into His Head
and May Die.
????V:- jPITTSBURG, June 1.?Because his
wife failed to liave supper ready for
him when he returned from work last
nighty Charles Whitehead, a macbin- I
ist, of Homestead, placed a revolver]
back of- his right ear and sent a bul- j
y,;; Set through his head. Late last night j
his condition was critical.
Whitehead is 3S years old and employed
at the Mesta Machine com
pany's plant at West Homestead. |
T.ast night at six o'clock he returned
to His home on Heizel street, Homestead,
and found that his wife had
neglected to prepare his supper. Mrs.
Whitehead explained that she
thought her husband had intended
going with her to the home of a
friend for their evening meal. The
couple quarreled, it is said, and Mrs.
Whitehead came to Pittsburg with a
young woman friend. Last night at
10:30 o'clock when she returned
home Whitehead entered her room
and said: "Well, Alice, this ends it
C: all." He then shot himself. Drs. C.
C- Rinard and J. E- Bair and three
other physicians worked with the
wounded man for about an hour, afi
ter which they said that his chances
lor recovery were poor.

There have been many, surprises
in the statesmanship and jtolitics of
Hie nation during the past few years,
hut none has been so jjronounced as
She aggressive attitude of Attorney
Oeneral P. C. Knox on the question
of industrial combinations, so-called
trusts. Mr. Knox had for years been
regarded as one of the most able exponents
of corporation law in the
country, and it was the supposition
T-? n'^nl/1 Innn cn hPfl v
Oi LJLId L 11^ M ~... ,
Sly oh the side of the great combinations
that he would warp the national
laws intended to hold them in
check. It was with that feeling that
he was received into the Mclvinley
-Cabinet against the wishes of some
and with the hearty approval of the
great men of the Republican party.
~ Some .wondered where Mclvinley
had picked up the Pittsburg lawyer
; as the virtual head of the American
; -. bar, for his present position entitles
htm to ? chat very great kcnt'or. To i
most of them Knox was an unknown
\ >V in every other respect than that he
was the successful attorney of An
. drew Carnegie. No one believed that
he would be anything else than a
\ ' dyed-in-the-wool combine advocatb, a
friend of the trusts.
Knox has so revolutionized the
opinions regarding him. that it is re- '
freshing to witness the homage paid
f to his rare ability by some of the-very'
' men who early suspected that he was
too one-sided for the seat in the President's
family. His career has been
spirited, clean to a marked degree.
sincere, persistent, constant, remarkable
and fairly studded with the most '
brilliant legal work that has attended
any of the efforts of the United
Stales Attorney General in titan v
Knox first revealed to a dissatisfied
country that he was an able man, a
Jawyer among many thousands. The
next realization was that he was a
I thoroughly honest man whom no un1
due influence could swerve from the
( course he had outlined. He displayed
to a surprised world that he could
cope with the very best legal experts
|. in the world, hold his own in combat
j, <6f exceptional legal brilliancy, that
; he was sincere in his efforts to execute
the laws framed to restrain violations
of fairness as between corporations
and the people and that he was
absolutely fearless in doing his duty.
Knox is and has been one of the
? most remarkable exceptions in political
life ever noticed.
i Pennsylvania never it ad a representative
in the United States Senate
who could outshine in brilliancy
j and in legal and diplomatic ability
the young man who once hailed from
Brownsville. Dalzell has been an able
servant in the House ol" Representatives,
and his standing at the Allegheny
county bar was just as high
as has been his position on important
committees charged with the duty of
framing national legislation, iiut not
even his friends make the claim that
; Tie stands equal with the Attorney
General who has fooled a doubting
nation by doing his duty in remarkable
Some people imagine that it is ut-,
terly impossible for a corporation or
1 ' .. any of its representatives to possess
j any honesty. That is supposed to be
the monopoly of* the people. Of
} -course, such imagination is as silly
as would be a statement that all j
! Tpittsburgers . are honest, but it serves '
? i
to make extremely refreshing and
exceptional the work of a man who
has proven his right to claim a seat c<
in the United States Senate.
Air. Knox was a big lawyer in s?
Pittsburg for a good many years be- w
fore he accompanied Andrew Car- gJ
negie to see President Cleveland, m
and it took only a short conversation
to impress the Democratic Pres- th
idem: and lawyer with the splendid ks
at m i rim en r s of the vounc Pittsburg- tfc
er. He ne;>t leaped into the front of
rank of Am^Jcan lawyers in connection
with a suit in Indianapolis, in '!l
which the late President Harrison
was an attorney. It was a street
railway fight in which Pittsburgers si
were interested. Harrison was in- u"
ciined to ignore the Pittsburger be- If
cause of his apparent youth. hf
Harrison had been a leader of the P<
Indiana bar for many years and a '1
national figure. He felt his oats. <1'
Knox had an idea how the case If
should lie conducted and Harrison of
had his idea. Of course, they were
opposite. Knox believed that he was I'
right, and he delivered those sledge- y
hammer arguments which have made
him so famous with such good effect
that Harrison succumbed and took
up the Pittsburg line of reasoning.
And that line won a case which was ''
worth a cool million and a half to
the Pittsburg capitalists. That let ,K
the country know what Pittsburg "
had long before realized full well.
That indicated the character of 31
Knox better than anything else. If '?
he believes that he is right, and he
has been endowed with sufficient ni
brains and common sense to take a ''
fair view of the most complex ques- "
tions. nothing will force him to re- 'a
linquish his position. He won many 11
notable victories in patent cases for ''
the Carnegie Company, one of the 31
most-far-reaching being his success m
in the United States Supreme Court cc
on the question of the use of the met

W. R. Jones of the Edgar Thompson *r
Steel Works. I1]
Although his victories for the big Ci
steel concern were brilliant his work sl
in connection with the anti-trust laws n
since his selection as Attorney Gen- C(
eral has eclipsed all of his previous IJ<
efforts for the simple reason that the tf
whole, world has watched his every e:
move. . Evidence of his sincerity in ?
the Northern Securities case was il- c'
lustrated in his selecting as his as- csistant
E. T. Watson, another honest,
brilliant Pittsburger. It was
probably a hard personal task for lt:
Mr. Knox to attack the very exist- v<
ence of the big railroad combination, ?'
as many of his personal frien<fs were 11
interested financially and heavily. ^
but to him his course was clear and
his success was all the more pro- I>(
nounced. !lIt
was his plan of campaign which m
won the victory over Great Britain
in the Alaskan boundary fight, probably
one of the greatest victorfes of tc
its kind ever gained by the United c*
States Government. Again was his ^
wisdom shown by liis selection of Mr.
Watson, and their combined attack
upon (lie position of the British won
for them the praise of even their rivals
and especial honors at the hands
:>f the English members of the jury. , ^
VIr. Knox has been interested in
many other important cases and in
almost every one he has gained fresh
laurels. One of his notable acts was
to become the spokesman of the
Roosevelt administration in defining j-j
its attitude toward the trusts, and it t
was Pittsburg which was given the rP
honor of first hearing that very important
industrial announcement. His p3
friends claim rhai lie has won the ?.
admiration not only of two totally
different and differing Presidents, but. _
of the Cabinets and of men high in ar
the ranks of both parties. They say
that as a Republican his selection as .
a Senator would mean the elevation -n
of the standard of Pennsylvania political
representation that would be ta
a credit to the country as well as the ^
famous Commonwealth ^vhich has .
done so much to advance the material
prosperity of the country.?Pittsburg
