Chicago , Sept. 4. II. Russell Ward ,
the Englishman who created a sensa
tion a short time ago by eloping with
the wife of John Bradbury , the young
millionaire of Los Angeles , Cal. , com
mitted suicide some time last night by
throwing himself'from a sleeper of the
Chicago & Northwestern overland
train. The fact was not known until
several hours later , and as the result
of a search , which was immediately
begun , the body of Ward was found at
Wheatland , Iowa.
It is not known at what hour Ward
leaped from the train , but according
to Conductor Calloway , the act was
committed after 3 o'clock this morn
Ward was evidently insane when he
threw himself out of the car window ,
as he had been acting peculiarly a
greater part of the trip. When the
train was at Fremont , Neb. , he sent a
telegram to the police in Chicago , re-
questing them to meet the train this
morning. He signed the telegram
"R. W. , " and for several hours the po
lice in this city endeavored to find out
who "R. W. " could be. The telegram
gave the police no information , but the
sending of it makes the police believe
Ward intended to commit suicide on
the train and sent the telegram for
the purpose of having the police find
his body when the train should ar
rive here.
Ward boarded the train in San
Francisco at 5 o'clock Monday after
noon and was assigned to drawing
room B , car 2 , and had tickets through
to Chicago. Yesterday and last night
he left his apartments at intervals ,
creating consternation among the
passengers by his peculiar actions. He
flourished two revolvers in the train
several times , almost creating a panic
among the passengers. Ho told the
conductor of the train who he was and
at nearly every stop the train made he
would get off and send telegrams. One
of these messages he sent to a resident
of Los Angeles , Cal. . saying that if
Mrs. Bradbury wanted him she could
come to him , but for the present he
would have to go to England and visit
his wife. Another telegram was the
one he sent to Chicago from Ferment ,
Neb. , reading as follows : "Please send
a good man to drawing room B , car 2 ,
of the eastbound overland Northwest-
ern train , arriving in Chicago a's 7:30
to-morrow morning. " He refused to
retire until 3 o ' clock this morning ,
when he approached the colored porter
ter and told him he was going to steep.
He then went to his room.Then
De Kalb , Illinois was reluhed
the porter knocked on the ii'oor '
of his room but got no answer.
He made several efforts to get Sato
the room but without success and
then abandoned the idea. When the
train pulled into the Northwestern
depot Detective Broderick endeavored
to gain enterance into the drawing
room , but in vain. The train crew
finally managed to get in through an
annex , and when the detective was
admitted the room was found to be
empty. A pile of clothing whicli
Ward had worn was found scattered
about the room , but no trace of him
could be found. It was decided that
he had jumped through the window ,
and all his effects were taken in
charge by the Pullman company.

wife and little daughter left for a
visit to England. Ward and the 'beau-
tiful wife of John Bradbury , a multi
millionaire of Los Angeles , eloped. A
few days later they were arrested in
the Cafe Farchand here on complaint
by Mr. Kane , secretary of the local
Society for the Prevention of
"Vice. Mrs. Bradbury was soon
afterward released and went East.
Bradbury had been away when
the affair took place , but when he re
turned and learned the particulars ho
went after his wife and a reconcilia
tion took place in Chicago under the
management of Mrs. Bradbury's
mother , Mrs. Banning. The Brad-
burys then went to New York and
under pretense of going fora , drive , to
avoid publicity , took a steamer for
There were several queer features of
th' affair. While Mrs. Bradbury is
beautiful , Mrs. Ward is considered far
more so. Ward was bald , ungainly
and 40. He had no mency beyond an
allowance from his wife's family , and
if this was to have been shut off , as it
was gossiped that it would be , this
may have contributed to unbalance
his mind and driven him to self-de
He Tlilnks the Cause Inadequate tor a
Party Foundation.
Lincoln , Neb..Sept. 4. When asked
as to his position on the question o
"government by injunction , " Mr.
Bryan said : "That is not an issue
upon which political parties can be
formed. The sentiment against gov
ernment by injunction is widespread.
It is confined to no class of people. It
is not a great economical question ,
however , like the proper issue of
money. It has not the power to cause
a line of cleavage. Even the Repub
lican party will not declare in favor
of injunctions , and the man who is
not directly affected by a federal in
junction does not appreciate it as an
issue of sufficient moment to cause
him to change his political affiiliations.
If appealed to on that line he simply
says : ' 0 , well , my party is opposed
to government by injunction , the
same as yours. The money question
goes deeper. It is a fundamental
economic question affecting every man ,
woman and child in the country. It
is of sufficient force to cause new
alignments or to harmonize differ
ences on minor or other matters ; it
can divide the voters into two great
parties. The tariff bill will be dis
cussed and criticised as before and the
Dingley law will make no friends for
the Republican party , but I still con
sider the tariff question as subsidary
to the greater and more fundamental
question of the money issue of this
nation. "
"But , " continued Mr. Bryan , "sil
ver is still , and will be , in this and the
next campaign , the fundamental econ
omic question at issue. I see no signs
of weakening in its hold upon the peo- i
pie. My trip West was most satisfac
tory. I found everybody on hand to
greet me. I did not get the rest I
needed and expected to get and have
come back as tired as I went away , or
more so. I spoke all the way out and
all the way back and on my arrival
here , of course there was no chance to
rest with the question of fusion still
unsettled. "

She Wants Now to Control the Nicaragua ,
Cnnal Negotiations Said to lto in
Progress With the Greater lie-
public of Central America-
Duty of the United
Japan's Latest Dickering.
New York , Sept. 3. A special to
the Herald from Washington , says :
"Japan , not content with interference
with President McKinlcy's Hawaiian
annexation policy , now has designs
upon the Nicaraguan canal. Accord
ing to semi-official advices just re
ceived here from Nicaragua , the Jap
anese government is secretly negoti
ating with the Diet of the Greater
Republic of Central America , which
recently met in San Salvador , for the
construction of the Nicaraguan canal ,
independent and in defiance of the in
terests and influence of the United
States or other nations.
"This action of Japan , taken in con
nection with her recent attitude in
regard to Hawaiian annexation , is of
the greatest significance , showing , as
it does , to the authorities that there
is no limit to the ambition of the na
tion , and her aggressive policy may
yet get her into trouble with the
United States. That the Administra
tion will resent any interference with
the Nicaragua canal project , as it did
in the case of the Hawaiian annexa
tion treaty , goes without saying.
"If Japan can encompass it , accord
ing to the Nicaraguan advices received
here , she would like to obtain the ab
rogation of all treaty rights possessed
by the United States in relation to
inter-oceanic transit and the forfeiture
of the American canal concessions
from Nicaragua , and to immediately
make a treaty with the Diet of the
Greater Republic of Central America ,
giving her control of the canal route
through Nicaragua. In the negotia
tions Costa Rica has not been consult
ed , it being well known that she would
not assent to a violation of treaty
"It has been suspected in some
quarters that England , which has
always been anxious to acquire at
least a joint control of the canal ,
might be working in collusion with ;
Japan in the 'dickering' with the Diet :
now understood to be in progress , but
nothing has yet come to the surface to
indicate that she lias encouraged
Japan in the move. It is said that the ;
agent of the Nicaragua canal here has
laid the facts before Mr. Hitchcock , ;
the president of the canal company , in i
New York , with the suggestion that j
the State department be apprised of ;
the secret negotiations that are now \
being carried on between Japan and j
the Diet. Senor Zelaya , the president ]
of Nicaragua , it is understood , has ad- <
mitfed to close personal friends that ]
Japan is negotiating witli the Diet , i
but in each case he advised the strictest - <
est secrecy. i
"A private letter just received in
this city from Nicaragua says : 'Among
Americans in Central America the be
lief is general that the Greater Repub- '
lie of Central America , which is rep
resented in its diplomatic affairs by a
Diet composed of three members ( one
each from Nicaragua , Salvador and ]
Honduras ) was organized principally
in order that Nicaragua might absolve - 1
solve herself from individual respon
sibility as a nation , and thereby abro
gate her interocear.ic transit treaty
with the United States. The so-called
Greater Republic , resenting the fail
ure of the United States to recognize .
the Greater Republic ( on re
ceiving Senor Rodriguez as min
ister ) and its failing to accredit
a United States minister to the
Greater Republic , is likely to try and j
make a treaty with Japan , granting ,
her concessions for the construction
of the canal. The United States min
ister here believes that when this ,
news reaches Washington the State > ;
department will sand a note to Japan \
asking if she is seeking to interfere J
with our treaty rights in the premi
ses. The Americans in Nicaragua be-
lieve that the United States govern- „
nient will insist that her interoceanic
treaties with Nicaragua , Costa Rica , =
Honduras and Columbia are yet in
force , although the Diet claims that
Nicaragua and Honduras are no longer
separate and individual nations , and
are therefore irresponsible. * '

Thousands Find Nothing About iiOO
Oat or 4,000 Have Made Strikes.
San Francisco , Sept. 3. A lottcr
dated Davvf.on City , July J. 'C , from
Charles Haines , n well-known news
paper writer , was received heru yes
terday. It is the first letter written
by a trained newspaper man to come
out of the Klondike gold regions. He
says :
About me are scores of men who can
weigh their gold by the bucketful ,
and who value their claims at mil
lions. Four hundred valuable dig
gings are stretched along the creeks
and in every diggings there is a fabu
lous mine of gold , yet thf re are weary
men who have gone and returned to
Dawson after searching the great
country hereabouts , and never a nug
get do they show for their toil , their
long tramp over the broken ground
into a country whose disadvantages
are exceeded by no other place on
earth. This Alaska Northwest terri
tory is an odd prize drawing propos
ition that I can liken to nothing that
admits of a better comparison than a
lottery. A number of spots arc selected
on the creeks and rivers and for
one year the miner labors. The year
closes , the water runs , and the sea
son's output barely pays expenses.
Not two miles away from the unfor
tunate one works a man who has
taken from an uninviting bit of earth
a sackful of gold. The lucky one did
not strike the pocket because of his
ability as a miner ; chance favored him ,
and that was all. In short , the miner
guesses at it and locates any and
everj'wherc. In nineteen cases out of
twenty he misses it , and has to wait
another year for a new trial. Dawson
is merely a collection of log huts , sa
loons and a mass of tents , about GOO
in number. When the long nights
come and the glass goes down to G. >
degrees below zero , there will bo in
tense suffering here , and I shudder to
think of the results.
Case of Joseph fll. I > llly , a Missouri
Farmer , Itocallod by Ills Death.
Ciiii.t.icotiie , Mo. , Sept 3. Joseph
M. Lilly , a wealthy farmer of Jack
son township , died last night , aged
about 04 years. He retired , after a
hearty supper , at 9 o ' clock. An hour
later his wife found him dead.
In 18G8 Mr. Lilly told his friends
that he had heart disease , and in the
lutumn of that year took to his bed
md lay prone there for twenty-one
iears , telling his physician and friends
Lliat if he raised his head or chest
xbove a slight angle he would instant
ly expire. Nothing could expel this
idea from his mind , and his family
lad to make the best of the
iituation. nis general health was
jood , but it was not until late in
LSS9 that he could be induced to get
lp. Once during that time his dwell-
ng caught fire , but he refused to
nove and was carried out on his
: ot. At last ho announced that ho
lad worn out his ailment , and ven-
ured to get out of bed , and was as
sisted to walk across the room. Since
; hen he has been up most of the time
nanaging his business affairs , for he
vas a , shrewd business man , and grew
• ich even while lying in bed.
A few weeks ago he had a slight
ihock of paralysis , but rallied , and up
, o the day of his death had fairly good <
lealth. He leaves a wife and one
laughter about 20 vears old.
