"I know no moro about the cause of hU
death than you do"satd , Mr. Harris to n Br.i !
correspondent , "nnd have no knowledge on
which to bnso n theory on the subject. "
It was suggested that Mr. Woodman might
have lost money as a result of rocont. rlso in
"If lie did I know nothing about It , " said
Ml' . Harris. "Ho wont to tlio board of trade
very little , so far as I know , and then ho
always wont with mo. "
When the chambermaid wont to his room
yftsterday afternoon at. 5 o'cloclc she found
Mr. Woodman lying In bed In his shirt sleeves ,
breathing heavily , as if in a sound sloop.
She did not return to the room again until 3
o'clock this afternoon , when she found him
lying in the same poiltlon , nnd notified the

examined the body nnd pronounced life oxOn -
\ On n tnblo ncnr the bed was found two
small bottles , ono labeled "Aqun Ammonia"
nnd the other ' 'Spirits of C.xmphor. " Near

"Threo ounces of chloroform and ono ounce

Immediately upon the discovery of Mr.

Tlio I'rosH Story.
Cmc\oo , Aug. 20. The dcnd body of Clark
Woodman , ono of the wealthiest clti/ens of
Omaha , Nob. , nnd an influential director in
the linseed oil trust , was found this after
noon In his room nt the Grand Pacific hotel.
The general supposition is that the death
was that of n suicido. The cnuso for such nn
net is still a most peculiar mystery , and all of
the circumstances do not by nny menus con
firm the theory ot suicido.
Mr. Woodman arrived at the Grand Pacific
Into last Monday night. No ono in the ofllco
remembered seeing him after ho retired on
that night. On Wednesday evening n oh im-
bormaid entered the room and found him lying
ncross the bed fully dressed , with the excep
tion of his icoat. Hearing the sound of his
breathing she supposed that ho was merely
Bleeping. She did not ro-ontor.tho room until
Is afternoon. She found the body In theme
mo ppsltion , but , the face was horribly dis-
coibrod and the odor of the roomjiulicatod
Dr. H. V. Stager was summoned nnd found
thnt such was the caso. The condition of the
body mode plain that ho was breathing his
last when seen by the chambermaid on Wed
nesday night. On the table were two bottles
ouo containing ammonia and the other spirits
4&r < ' imphor. The buttles stood on n piece of
the Hotel letter paper on which was written :
"I'lireo ounces of chloroform , ouo ounce am
An Uncompleted Latter.
Something also had boon started below this
on the paper , but it was not completed. A
stamped and addressed envelope to II. G.
Clark , Omahn , Neb. , wns also on tbo table.
The hand writing on the envelope nml on the
bit of paper did not coirespond. Mr. Wood-
mau was n member of the commission firm of
Woodman & Harris , in the Rookery building.
_ The Junior member of the firm , J. F. Har
ris , clnlmod that , except in company with
himself , bis partner never visited the board
of trade , ami even then ho did nut go outside
the regular work of the firm. Strangely
enough , however , Mr. Harris did not know
that Mr. Woodman was in the city until ho
learned of his death. 'Ho had not seen him
for a week and presumed that ho was in
No Iteason Tor Suicide.
"I can Imagine no conceivable reason for
Btllcido , " said Mr. Harris , who was evidently
gieatly shocked at the event , "Mr , Wood-
mail tins been mv partner slnco IbbS , and before -
fore that time 1 llvod at hU house In Omaha.
In i > ll that time 1 have learned to know nnd
lilto him thoroughly. It you were to nsk nny
ono in Omaha for tno happiest family in the
city I think the first name to bo mentioned
\vould i bo Mr , and Mrs , Chirk Woodman. If
( loath ! came nt his own hand It would appear
L impossible | that family troubles could hnvo
R _ t\U30d It and , personally , I know of nothing
in ifbtutness way which would hnvo done so.
Mr. Hnrrls1 statement > vns confirmed by
Ills brother. Gcorgo B. Harris , vice president
of the Burlington railroad , who had known
the dead man intimately , though ho had not
suet him for some months ,
Ho WIIB Uulvermilly LI Iced.
The accident is greatly regretted by all
connected with the Grand pacific , wharo Mr.
Woodman has for years made his headquarter
quarter- when away from Omaha , nnd where
ho was universally liked.
I to wns n tall , handsuina man about fifty-
llvo years of ngo , with snow-whito hair mid
moustache. Ho wivs not n drinking man , nor
had ho any Known dlsslpitions. His ftlends
hope , despite ttio circumstances , that death
resulted from heart disease. If it was that
of n suicide the letter which ho loft addressed
to H , G. Clark , Omaha , may explain the
invstery. Mr. Clark Is one of his oldest
filends , a wealthy cltl/en of Omaha , and at
onu tlmo was in thnt city Interested with Mr.
Woodman in n linseed oil mill. Other facts
mav , however , bo developed nt the inquest ,
which will bo hold tomorrow morning at
Klaners1 undertaking establishment , whnro
the nody was taken tonight. For.lho present
IJr. Stuporsrefuses to give any information
based on the condition in which ho found t'io '
Vr. Woodman nt Home.
Few men in Omaha were moro widely
known or moro respected than Clark Wood
man , and the news of his sudden and un
timely death was a shock to every ono , and
was received as a personal bereavement by
the entire buslnv.ss community. It was the
onVthomo ot conversation on the streets and
, . ! * ; til public guthcrlnes , nnd anxious in-
; quirlcs were made everywhere for partic
ulars of tb.9 snd event , which had boon only
brlolly bulletined at first ,
Mr , Woodman was an extensive grain
dealer ana his doatU at tag present oxcltod
stngo of the gram market gave rise to nil
sorts of rumors as to the cause and manner
of his end.
These reports were silenced when the
statements of the batiks and his business as-
niclatos ware received showing that his
financial nftalr ut Omaha and elsewhere were
In n sound condition and that speculation
could hnvo played no part In the ending of
Ins busy and o'ventfu' life.
Mr , Woodman's business partner , Mr. F.
K. Rltchio , loft last evening for Chicago and
will bring the remains to tills city for burial.
Clark Woodman was ono of the most
prominent business men of Omaha. Ho was
ilfty-oiio years of ago and was n native of
Schuvler' county , Illinois. tlo was
superintendent of Flint .t Thomp
son's elevators In Chicago from 1857 to lbx. (
In the latter year ho came to Omaha and en
tered n partnership with Robert 1C. laft In
the contracting nnd building business. It
was this firm that erected tlio Omaha High
school building in 1S09. In 1ST- the firm
added Mr. It. H. Harris and began the manu
facture of linseed oil. Mr. Harris died
in I87ti and Toft & Woodman continued the
business until January 1 , 1W1 , when Mr.
Woodman bought Ins partner's business and
orgnnl/ed the Woodman linseed oil company ,
which was afterwards changed to the Wood
man & Ritchlo company , the partners being
Mr. Woodman , Mr. F. K. Ritchie and Mr. C.
L Harris , the latter of Chicago.
The firm's business was very large , the
output of linseed oil alone amounting to moro
than 81,000,000 n year. The firm also owned
a line of grain elevators along the B. & M.

Mr. Woodman was married , his wife sur

The nssets uro $1,100,000 ; liabilities , $130,000.
Judge Blodgott of the federal district court
has made Noble C. Butler receiver.
The American wheel company Is said to bo
the world's ' largest in nnufnctoy of wheels
nnd vonlclcs. The total assets nro given us
Jl.100,000 nnd the liabilities ? 1,800,000. The
stringency of the money market and inability
to secure extension of obligations caused the
collaps\ All the plants of the company
are temporarily closed nnd the
2,500 employes are idle. These most heavily
interested caused the appointment of n re
ceiver and assort that the company will bo
able to liquidate all indebtedness and pay
stockholders dollar for dollar on their invest
Application for a receiver was made very
quietly late on Wednesday nftornoon and the
bill suppressed until Into this afternoon in
order that the receiver might secure full
possession and forestall all attaching cred
itors , this being done in order to give all into -
to res ted parties an equitable- share in the
The company's principal works are in In
diana , Ohio and Michigan , but it has plants
In Now York , Pennsylvania and Massachu
setts. His an Illinois corporation , but has
little piopurty in this state. The Drincioal
stockholders aio In Indiana.
The bill asking n receiver states that the
nssots consists of sites , manufacturing plants ,
machinery , products , etc.divided as follows ;
Indiana , $1,300,000 ; Ohio , $1,000,000 ; Mich
igan , $ UOUOO , ; Pennsylvania , $ JJOOOf ; ; Now

nois , $10,000 ; other assets , accounts nnd cash
on hand , $800,000. Liabilities nro made up oy
bills of exchange , promissory notes , indebted
ness for labor , etc.
The corporation was organized in Decem
ber , 18S4 , and business was nt once begun
on n largo scalo. Plants were established at
Indianapolis , Fort Wayne , Teiro Haute and
St. Mary's Ind. : Miamlsburg , Sidney , Gal-
lion , Snmlusky and Ottawa , O. ; Jackson and
Ivuhuniuoo , Mich. ; Wostchestor , Pa. , and
Syracuse and Shortsville , N Y. The plants
at nil those points are in operation except
at Wcstchestor , Pa. A largo amount of prop
erty is also owned in Huntlugton , Mt.
Vernon , Osgond , Titusvlllo , Auburn nnd Sal
mon , Ind. , in Lansing , Mich. , and Van Wort
nud Scott , O.
The company found itself under enormous
expenses when it hnd established nil the
branches and was compelled to incur largo
indebtedness , pledging Its credit by promts-
ory notes , etc. Business has boon carried on
nt a profit until the last six months , slnco
when it has boon extremely dull and , to make
matters worsotlio financial stringency caused
the credltois to rafuso accommodation. The
company was unable to issue any part of its
unused capital stock on which It Had de
pended for funds. Its credit became im
paired and it was unable to pay largo obliga
tions falling duo from day to day.
The bill sets forth that the manufacturers
of vehicles- throughout the country nro
largely dependent on it for wheels , as It sup
plies seven-eighths of the entire demand of
the country. The receiver was appointed
that the plants might bo kept in operation
and to prevent forced sales nt a sacrifice to
the detriment of many creditors and the
Injury of the employes.
None of tbo oftlcers of the wheel company
could bo soon this evening , but the company's
attorney , Jacob B. Nowiiian , said that now a
receiver had been appointed ho was sure the
embarrassment would last but two or three
mouths and that business would bo resumed ,

CHRIST'S ' HOLY CARMENL
Hold in Holy Veneration by Countless De
SYMBOLIC OF CATHOLIC UNITY.
Its Exhibition nt Troves Ma do the
Occasion of Gront Worship nntl
Much Profit by the Towns
UKIIMN , Aug. 20. The garment known ns
the holy coat was exposed to view this
morning m the cathedral at Trovos. Two
Knights of Malta , in full costume , with
drawn swords iu their hands , stood on either
side of the shrine enclosing the holy coat
case , which is surrounded by tall lighted
candles In handsome candlesticks and sur
mounted by a largo gold cross.
There was nn impressive scene In the
sanctuary , over one hundred priests assisting -
ing in the ceremonies , which were grand in
the extreme. The cathedral was richly
decorated for the occasion nnd was
packed to the doors with pooplo. The
Interior of the sacred odtlico was a
sight well worth seeing. The vestments of
the priests , the scarlet uniforms of the
Knights of Malta , the countlois lights flick
ering In every nook and corner , the prismatic
rays following through the old windows , the
strange congregation , composed of people of
many nations and nil walus of life , formed u
picture not often scon.
Bishop Korum , during his nddrois to the
assembled multitude , earnestly urged the
faithful to unite In venerating tbo garment
from which power and virtue proceeds. The
aisles of the cathedral were then cleared seas
as to allow thn municipal powers to march up
to the shrina on which was the holy coat and
venerate that relic.
The scene was a motley ono. The English
tourists In light tweed suits nnd Prussian
ofllcors in uniforms , stubbornly refusing to
kneel bolero the relic ; and a bourgeois citi
zen in evening dross were prominent in the
crowd. The service with the monotonous
chants and the administration of the cuchar-
ist to representative ecclesiastics , assumed
the character of n mediaeval concert.
The unveiling of the relic evidently made n
deep impression on the crowd o ( worshippers.
Mnny were overpowered oy their feelings.
Several women fnintod. Tnoro was a general
movement of tbo crowd , brought there
by curiosity ns well as religious worship.
The procession of visitors as It passed the
shrine of the pilgrims , most of whom handed
n rosary or crucifix to attendant priests for
contact with the relic , was accompanied by
a low hum of avos. Among the pilgrims are
aged cripples and sufferers from almost
every complaint ,
SCCIICM ol"Disorder nnd Confusion.
Outside the cathedral there were busy
scenes to which processions with banners
and musical throngs of visitors and vendors
of photogranns and rnsanos all contributjd.
There were some scenes of disorder owing to
the somewnat violent attempts made to gain
early access to the cathedral.
Troves Is overflowing with visitors , whoso
curiosity nlonu has boon excited. The streets
are filled with processions of all descriptions
and sacred banners , crosses and lighted
candles are to bo seen on all sides.
During the whole time the holy coat is on
exhibition about twenty excursion trains a
day will visit this city , and a largo temporary
piilroad station has been built for the pil
grims In order that the town may not bo
overcrowded. These are only allowed to
remain ono night , arriving , say in the evening
ing , they will march until morning in proces
sion in the cathedral , and must leave town
the same evening to make way for other
religious bedies of people.
A Swuriu ol' Visitors.
Some idea of the number of people nt
Troves can bo judged from the fact that
nearly llvo hundred citi/ens of Troves sent
in n petition to the municipal authority for
licenses to keep Inns and other public houses
during the exhibition of tno holy coat
nnd in addition nearly every houso-
noldor has made arrangements for
receiving visitors during the six weeks of
the exhibition. Extra horse car lines have
been laid and there will bo n market held
every day of the six weeks. Pictures of the
holy coat uro to bo seen , not only In ovorv
shop window in the street , but in nearly
every shoo window of th city , and there are
millions of their representations in all sizes
and shapes on handkerchiefs , on paper , on
earthenware , on wood and on metal being
sold everywhere. The photographs nntur *
ally nro merely moro productions of draw
ings of the holy coat published in illustrated
papers of 181 i , and there nro also reproduc
tions of the medals of that time.
Much comment has boon caused by the
remarks of Bishop ICorum in his opening ad
dress today , when ho referred pointedly to
ths spiritual significance of the holy coat ab
being u seamless vesture and as being a
symbol of the unity of tno Catholic church.
There were many Roman Catholic members
of the reichstag present , and it is said that
tlio bishop particularly , and in a not to bo
mistaken manner , addressed his remarks to
, Tlio holy coat Is distinctly visible in the
body of the cathedral and is much more
plainly scon than upon the former occasion
of Its exhibition. The old silken covering
being almost entirely worn away , the coat
appeared today to bo of a brownish yellow
ItH First Appearance.
The first solemn exhibition of the holy coat
took place in IMHJ , wnon it was placed under
the now altar Tlioto It rested until 1511.
when Emperor Aluxlinllllan urgently wished
it to bo exhibited , which was done that year.
Pope Lee X. , about this time , promised in
dulgence to all who made the pilgrimage to
Troves. Then In the years 1511 , ifiir , , ISM
15bT , 1591 and 10.15 it was also shown. To
ward the end of the seventeenth century ,
when the French under Louis XIV. Invadea
Germany , the precious rolio was hidden in
the fortress of Ehronbroitstoln. In 1T21 the
emperor of Cologne was allowed to see it.
In EhronbrolUtoin It was kept untllaftor the
seven ; ears'war. After the last exhibition
thjire , in ITOo , it was brought back to
Troves , but n few years Inter it had
to bo removed into the Interior of Germany ,
when Napoleon Invaded the country. At
last , 1810 , another solemn exhibition took
nlnco in Trove * . Napoleon I. permitted It ,
but ho expressly forbade miracles to bo per
formed on this occasion. Yet the report of
the vicar general , Cordot , about the exhibi
tion In the year 1S10 says that gouty patients ,
who weio carried up walked away alone.
The rulers of 1844 were mom tolerant , and
numerous miracles were reported. The
Troves newspapers of that day ore full of
accounts of miracles which took place at the
exhibition of 1841. The greatest sensation
was caused by tbo healing of the young
countess of Drosto-Vichoring ,
At 10 o'clock tonight pilgrims were still
filing In to behold the coat , nnd an eager
throng wn besoiglng the doors of the cnlli-
cdral , The police had some trouble to preserve -
servo order. The whole town is In commo
tion. Pickpockets are rampant and several
have boon arrottcd.
