The Question Which aSoIdier
Answered this Morning
in the Negative.
A'Deliberate and Determined
One of the most deliberate cases of
suicide which as occuired fur a lorg
time past in our city , took place yet-
terday , near the government corral ,
the victim being Alexander Rearon , the
chief bugler of the Nhub infantry
band , at Fort Onuba.
It appears that on Friday he was
paid oQ at the fort , and , coming to
Omaha , immediately proceeded to got
on a "spree , " during which ho spent
all his pay and became as low in spir
its as he wai in pccket. About ten
o'clcck yesterday be strolled down
the Northwestern track to the south
gate of the corral , which he was about
to enter , when he was accosted
by John Henseman , tbo watchman ,
who inked him whether ho wished to
see any one. Rearon , who Mr. Hense
man ssya looked straoge'y , replied
that he did not , but asked the way to
the river. He was directed to tuin to
the right through the U. P. yard , af tei
which he walked off. Mr. Henseman
went in to one of the employes and
told him that he was afraid from the
man's action that he wai about to
commit suicide ' and had hardly re-
turned to his pest when ho was in
foimed that a S''ldierhad shot him-elf
just outside the gate. .
The body was discovered in a sitting
p'.sturc , leauing against aboard fence ,
which stands between the Union
Pacific yards and the Northwestern
track. The deceaf ed had taken a five
chambered 28 calibio revolver and
plac'ng it immediately under his chin
had JJrid.tbo bulkt tiaveraingthrough
the month and lodg'ng in the
brain producing instant death. When
found , life was hardly extinct and the
blood w s flowing from the wound
and running from his nostrils. His
right hand still grasped tenaciously
the revolver and his eyes were open.
The body was rt moved to one of the
government store rooms and Coroner
Jacobj was immediately summoned by
telephone and arrived on the ground
in twenty minutes from the time of
the finding of the body. An inquest
was held at the corral , the following
jurors beirg impanuellud : John
Mott , Geoige Dcane , Charles E.
Squires , George Ward , Archie Gray
snd T. J. Magrane.
After hearing the evidence , which
wes in accordance with the facts as
above stated , the jury rendered a ver
dict tint " the deceased came to his
death by a pistol shot fired by his
own hands. " Tte body was enclosed
in a case and taken to Fort Omaha ,
where it M ill bo buried by his com
The deceased was a fine-looking
man , of medium height , well built ,
with dark complexion and dark bair.
3c had seen considerable service in
.he west , and was a skillful bugler.
The only cause which can be assigned
or the fateful act was menial des-
pendency , result iug from protracted
drinkiog. *

showed the experienced super vision ol
Mr. Squires , which is ample praise ,
but in this instance Mr. Squire J seem
ed to surpass himself.
The programme was quite short ,
there being but twelve dances , but the

many "Pleasant Hours. "
Mr. Knight ia reply made a few
brief remarks ai follows :
most hea't'ly ' fir this great compli
ment to MM. Knight and myaclf un
deserved though it be. It is with
peculiar feelings I stand here to-nighl
regret at beit-g obliged to sever my
connection with friends EO dear to me ,
and satisfaction in seeing such evi
dences of prosperity in a club whoso
interest has always been mine , more
espec".a'ly during the past year. Al
though the General baa been
rathar lavish in hii praises
of my management of the club , ]
confess to ben ga btttor ca'erer ' than
speaker , and will therefore not inflict
myself longer npcn your good nature.
I can only assuie you that the pleas
ure of this occasion will long dwell
in the memory of Mrs Knight and
myself a pleasure which is only
marred by the thought of having so
soon to bid you all farewell.

necessary ; therefore , bo it
Resolved , That the workingmen ol
Omaha denounce such interference by
