New York, Not. 1. William W.
Wright, a young lawyer, committed
suicide Friday by taking poison. Ha
was seea to stagger and fall on Wil-loughby-ave.,
near Nottrand, by a
couple of ladies, who summoned assis

of St. Mary's Hospital, arrived son
after and pronounced him beyond help.
Wright, who had been apparently
struggling in a fit, regained conscious
ness en the doc tor's approach.
"Fix me up quickly, dnctor," he
said, "I've got an engagement to take
dinner with a friend."
Then he lapsed into a state of coma.
He never regained his seuses and died
within a block of the spot where be
fell. He was identified by papers
found on bim, snd his relatives, who
live at No. 477 Dcan-st., were notified.

John C. Pcll's petition for habeas cor.
pus. Bell is a railroad man from Kan
sas City against whom a decree for di
vorce for cruelty wss entered last
April. At that time, it is alleged, he
consented to his wife's custody of the
children. She suddenly disappeared
front Kansas City, and then he began
a search for her. Yesterday afternoon
he unexpectedly found the woman and
the children performing in a dime
museuat, and he swore out the writ.
When it was served it caused acemmo
tion among the freaks at the museum.
A deputy sheriff watched the children
closely aad the father was gaven no
chance to talk to them.
Mrs. Bell was the first witness called
this morning. ...
"Hew did the children learn singing

was srlvcn to the facts already known
Mr. Bowen feared that Andrews' nbil

He at once resolved to break with

Ia the roun'aius.r et PaptUt church
last evt-ning lr. Jaxtmon gave hU fiitu
lecture to worklngmen. His subject
was -Cla Warfarj.' The text wa
tu I. Cor., 12:-l: "The eye cannot iy
to the hand I have no ned of thee,
Jior the bead to the feet, I have no
need of you."
He said: The student of American
History can easily trace the ri of
the st-rugglt now wazuig betwee n ca4
tal and labor. In tiie ilay prior to
and immediately nucceetliuic the lie vo
lution thi-re was no very rich ela
and few were very poor. Tb tramp
and the ruillionairv had not yet made
their advt-at on the shore of the new
world. The jK ople who came t?;ether
to form the United State of Aiuirlea,
were hard working, noble hearted pat
riots who combined iu the defence of
their liberties and to uiak a home for
the oppressed oi all catious.
As the population incrr-.it ed and the
country develojKtl large fortune were
accumulated. !radually an aristo
cracy of wealth jcrew up among
as proud n.'id imperious as the aristo
cracy of blood in the old world.
The little fckops vhre the employer
and employe worked side by bide fast
l1 app ar d, ond with th m th mutual
understunding of the two classes. Cupl
tal coxnbiEd with capital in its own
interest nud the workmen were com
pelled to orsaniie lu nflMefence. The
strujrgle which followtMl and which Ls
at 111 rogir.g with constantly increasing
fury nan leen characterized by n bitter
new nnd unccm promising hostility not
surpassed by aoiy war In the history
of the race. To add to the confusion
the two hostile camp have been sub
divided into factions each arrayed
against the other. We have beheld
the spectacle of the large capitalists
crushing out smaller ones, and organis
ed labor contending with the unor
ganised forces until it almost seems
that the preat industrial nrmy is fin
ally to be destroyed by luterniclne war
fare. Aa we look out at this b'.tter con
flict now raging about us we wonder
whether Lard Macaulay's prophesy ut
tered thirty years n;ro may not r.fter
all prove true. Tua.t sagacious Eng
lish historian once paid, concerning this
country: "Litiier some Caesar or Na
poleon will seize the reins of govern
ment with a strong hand or your

and laid waste by barbarians in the

These, class struggles n.re cert. Inly
as foolish as they are danger oas. It Ik
a battle between brothers. It is" a
contest . between friends who cannot
live without each other li there are
to be hostilities at all they ojht.not
to bo betwceai the classes, but between
the good aad bad in each class. The
unjust rich man is the greatest enemy
of the honorable rich man. It 19 the
err elty and heartlesKness cf the
borf.aj'a among the capitalists
who are reeporslble for the
suspicion and hatred with which
all wealth Is regarded- The wealthy
employer who is disposed to b? Just
and generous b robbed of the love and
honor due h?hi by the fordid mean
nc of the svlfishly rich, vho call down
the contempt of mvW.v upon th entire
cla's. It Is rot possible for the calumny
of the focialbt aivj anarchi"t to do
tl;e pcle hearted rich man a tithe
of the harm that daily comes upon
hlra by vain display nnd wicked want
of wealth indulged In bv ty nabobs.
He Is in darker of pufferin for the sins
of his class as many ot h kind hearted
and generout among the nobility of
France lct thrlr liven In th days of
the RevoCution- If the wis and good
amorg the rich will turn their atten
tion to the extermination of the ra
pacious of their own cTiss the- need
apprehend no further trouble from so
cialism ar.'l anarchy In America.
So alno among the working closes
the bad fire the worst enemies of the
good fral are the chief obstacles In the
way cf labor winning its Just rewards.
The sympathy of th public bns often
been turned from the entire class and
fear and distrust taken Its rlaee be
cause hot beaded leaders have defied
the law or ndvocated force. Th hon
est and legal workman has suffered
more nt-the hands of the profn!onal
rurlt.iter than from all the optrenlons
of capital. "How woi:M vou like to o
