Wlllism Heatley took hti own life shortly
before 8 o'clock Sunday morning by shoot
1ns himself In the left temple with a 38
eallber revolver. The ball entered the
temple and came out at the top of the head.
- Death waa Inatantancoui. Heatley had
brooded over financial reverses until he be
came possessed with the hallucination that
be waa the possessor of $1,000,000. It waa
irhlle laboring 'under tbla belief that he
took hla own life.
Heatley roomed at the residence Of N.
V. Bass, 2009 Harney street, and It was
la the front yard of this house that the
ulcide occurred. He had gone down town
earlier In the morning. Returning he
went to hla room and presently came out,
without bla coat or hat, and walked to a
tree In the front of the yard. Here he
tood erect with hla back against the trunk
f the tree, placed the muxtle of the re
volver to his temple and Bred. The re
volver fell from hla hand, and his body
collapsed and sank at the base of the tree.
Mr. and Mrs. Bass and other roomers
-at tho house and resident In that vicinity,
attracted by the shot, rushed to Heatley a
Ids and summoned physicians, but life
was extinct. The coroner was then notl
Ved and the body removed to the morgue.
Mlad Derauited by Trouble.
The man was temporarily Insane, his
fhlnd having been deranged for the last
two days. Though a poor man he believed
himself to be the owner of $1,000,000 and In
formed those with whom be came In con
tact of his good fortune. On a table In his
room was a letter addressed to hia brother-in-law,
Ed Derlght, In which he stated that
hla estate was worth $1,000,000 and be de
aired Mr. Derlght to see that It was prop
erly distributed among his relatives. The
letter specified that $1,000 was to be given
to "Bod," $1,000 to Heatley's wife and the
remainder to hia mother.
In another letter, addressed to his mother,
Mrs. Thomas Heatley of Gateshead, Eng
land, Heatley told the story of his experi
ences In this country and of the hard times
he had experienced. He closed the letter
by saying that In the future he would write
more frequently to the old folks. Fart of
this letter was rational, but the greater por
tion waa the work of a deranged mind.
Heatley was a brother-in-law of Ed De
rlght, 1839 North Nineteenth street. He
came to America many years ago and lo
cated In Montana, where he lost consider
able money and was left without means by
bad Investment in a sheep ranch.
Separated from Family.
M waa married and the father of two
children. . After hla financial reverses In
Montana he came to Omaha and secured
Work with the Nebraska Clothing company.
Bis wife remained In Montana and about
Six years ago aecured a divorce and was
gain ' married. For the last two years
Heatley has been employed at the store of
Thomas Kllpatrlck aV Co. He was 45 years
of age. At the time of his suicide Heatley
was off on a ten days' vacation, which ex
pired thia morning.
The dead man leaves a mother, father and
two brothers In England. These were noti
fied of ' his death. Coroner Brailey will
likely hold an Inquest over the remains

Oeaeral Batea Dlseasses the Featarea
of the Coateat at Fort
General Bates returned Sunday morning
from Chicago, where he attended the rifle
competition of the army, of the United
States. He aald:
"I was surprised at the high scores
Biade, the men having had so little prac
tice. The average of the competition waa
about 621 ' points, while the high man at
the competition of the Department of the
Missouri had only 603 points to his credit.
Deuberry, who won the first place In the
department team, made nearly 100 points
more than he did at Fort Leavenworth and
then got second place.
"The honors of tho army competition be
long to the Department of the Colorado
and to the Eighteenth Infantry. The Eight
eenth bad four men on the department
team, and out of four men who went to
Chicago from the department three se
cured medals. Including the first medal.
. " 'Oun Bllng Dave,' whose high scores In
past competitions were the pride of the
Department of the Missouri, waa In the
competition, coming from the Department
cf the Columbia.' He does not take ao
kindly to the new regulations as be did to
the old ones and his scores were not those
of recent years, but he showed that, al
'though aeveral years older, and unable to
use the gun sling which he made famous
, In former competitions, he Is still able to
draw a bead hurriedly. He was eighteenth
en the list when the regular target prac
tloe closed and at skirmish firing he came
op to a place which gave him a silver
medal. The medala will be transmitted
to the winners at the posts, not having
fcsen made yet."
Speaking of the Washington rumor that
lie would be placed In charge of the Di
vision of the Philippines, General Bates
. "I think. It la all talk. It la almost cer
tain that General Davla will not be re
lieved .for a year. After that time there
la no way of telling who will go there."

ABOUT ARTIST OMNIPOTENT
Rev. Wlathrop Alllsoa Takea Palat.
I" a-a ot fled aa Bermoa
The paintings of Ood, the artist Omni
potent, their blending of the white and
ruddy, so aptly referred to by Solomon, and
the purpose of those paintings, provided
a theme for Rev. Wlnthrop Allison, who
occupied the pulpit at the First Fresby
terisn church Sunday morning. The speaker
sought to emphasise more clearly the sig
nificance of the colore, the white symbollo
of the rhaete Christ; the red symbollo
of a blood nourished humanity.
"The world." he said, "had no correct
conception of the Father In Its earlier
periods, viewing Him as a tyrant. The
Bon, sent In the Image of man, but with
attributes wholly those of the Father, was
the new picture that made clearer for all
time to come the conception . which God
preferred His children should have of Him.
"Other pictures he has painted for our
further enlightenment; for instance, the
first protrayal of aln In the garden; that
of Sacrifice painted with breathing figures
of Abraham and Isaac.
"The divine artist 'made no mistake;
erred not In Hie blending of colors; gsve us
no scene that can ever be or need ever
be changed or effaced. With them he has
shown us the beautiful purpose of life, Its
divine Inception, and pointed for us the
way to a perfect eternity."
KINGDOM NOT' OF THIS WORLD.
Rev, Crala Speaks ot Power ot Jeans
At Trinity cathedral yesterday Rev. R. E.
L. Craig preached on the subject, "Witness
Unto the Truth." The speaker opened by
relating the trial of Jesus Christ before Pon
tius Pilate, and Christ's reply to the ques
tion, "Art Thou the king of the Jews?" He
said, in part:'
"Jesus replied that His kingdom was not
of this world. He came to bear witness of
the truth. His power Is not through earthly
force. He rules In the hearts of men, mod
ifying the relations between nations, be
tween master and servant, between the
members of the family, between man and
man. This King has no earthly rank. He
stands between soldiers, bound. He calmly
declares the purpose for which He came to
earth and In Hla presence there is a quiet
dignity which transforms the thorns to a
crown of glory. He knew that a king must
serve before he can rule, and the record of
Hla life Is a record of good works. The
suffering cross becomes a throne of power.
"In man there is no trouble ot distress of
mind which does not come from a failure to
perceive the reason for which we are placed
on earth. Christ in His life taught the
truth, the true relation between things and
between man and God. When the world
comes to understand this truth wars will
ceaae, slavery and oppression will come to
an end, no outrages will be perpetrated by
monarchy or by mob and the kingdom of
God will come to earth and Hla will, will be
CHRIST'S SUPREME OWNERSHIP.
Sabject ot Rev. Kahn'a Sermon at
Rev. Luther M. Kuhns preached Sunday
morning at Grace Lutheran church on
"Christ's Supreme Ownership," taking his
text from I Corinthians: "Ye Are Cbrlat'a."
He aald. In part:
"The condition on which all things are
oura la 'Ye are Chrlst'a.' The moral gov
ernment of the world subjects the design of
events to the establishment of a kingdom of
our Lord. It means man's return to Christ
after his own futile attempt at self-ownership.
"Christ's ownership Is established by His
medlatorshlp winning us to God. By emp
tying out self we get possession of all things.
Human boasting of authority and ownership
le unseemly, because Christians belong to
"We are parts of the world' curious
clockwork. Each man preserves his own
Individuality best when most in touch with
Christ as a fellow-worker. The ultimate end
of all Christ's endeavor, whether expressed
by the ownership, creation, preservation or
redemption, is the ownership to Ood per
sonal self-surrender to the Divine will."
LONDON NOT INIT WITH OMAHA
Ak-Sar-Rea Illamlaatloas Every Year
Outshine Those Pat I'p for Kin
"The coronation Illuminations In London
did not compare with the Illuminations we
have right here la Omaha every year for
the Ak-Sar-Ben carnival, and the London
coronation decorations are little auperlor
to those we have . had at home time and
again." Bo declares Judge W. D. McHugb,
who returned last week from a short trip
to Europe, taking in London and a few
adjacent points. "We arrived in London
a tew days after the time set originally
for the king's coronation and of course
found the city In its gala drees, although
stirred by excltment. I must ssy, however,
that we were much disappointed In the
display, which fell far abort of expectations.
The fact Is, the London people do not know
how. Only In a few localities waa any at
tempt made at elaborate decoration.
"The Canadians had put up a grain arch
near Trafalagar Square, such as we are
accustomed to soelng frequently In this
country and it viae so unusual a aight there
that t radio was often blocked by the crowds
stopping to Inspect It Most ot the dec
orations wers simply the letters 'E. R."
on some kind ot a red background, while
the Illuminations took the form chiefly of
perforated gas pipes supporting burning
jets. The most profuse illumination waa
found at the Bank ot England and sur
rounding buildings facing Threadneedle
street, but there waa nothing artistic about
them simply big clustera of globe pro
tected gas lights.. This group of buildings
when lighted up were not nearly so im
pressive aa the Illuminations of Ths Bee
building. City ball and courthouse here In
Omaha when decked out for festive occa
"Another thing that grated on our eyes was
the hideous profusion of spectators' stands,
erected without regard to appearance, all
along the streets to be traversed by the
royal procession. .These stands obstructed
ths view of the most Important publte
buildings, to ssy nothing of private store
buildings and shops. Somebody lost a pile
ot money on these stands for which tlcketa
had been aold In advance. Many of the
owners bad taken out Insurance, and those
who bad been Insured returned the money
to their patrons and held ths Insurance

are full ot suits to recover money lost by
the postponement of the coronation."

While the threatening weather of yes
terday morning materially affected the at
tendance at the picnic of the Douglas
county democracy. It did not seriously de
tract from the enjoyment of those who
did take chances on the elements and par
ticipate In the outing. i"x-:. l -The
picnic of this year was held' at Ar
lington and every provision bad been made
by those In charge of the event to give
their guests a good time. The "braves'
of the organization were out in large force
and exerted themselves to the utmost to
carry the program through successfully,
the park afforded facilities for a wide va
riety of amusement for both the younger
and the more mature members of the
party, and as It was an all-day affair re
freshment pavilions were prominent among
the accommodations and were well patron
ized. The excursion train, which was not un
comfortably crowded, left the city at 9 a.
m., arriving at the plcnlo grounds soon
after 10, and there the Omaha party was
Joined by those from Fremont, Arlington
and the surrounding country, many of whom
came In carriages.
Game of Base Ball.
The base ball grounds were too wet In
the morning for use, but toward noon
had dried .out somewhat and a snappy
game was played between the Paxton A
Gallagher and Green River teams, the lat
ter winning by the close score of 11 to
10, and the deciding run being made In the
ninth. Hunter of the winning team caught
an admirable game and the fielding of G od
ds rd was also worthy of special mention.
The batteries were Prlmeau and Foil for
Paxton & Gallagher and Knight and Curtis
and Hunter for Green River. Umpire:
In the meantime Clark's Union orchestra
was furnishing music for a large propor
tion ot the younger members ot the com
pany to amuse themselves In dancing at
the pavilion and the program of field
sports, which attracted a large crowd of
spectators, had been begun.
The program presented events of a widely
diversified character, permitting all classes
to participate and furnishing keen enjoy
ment to the spectators. A nall-drlvlng con
test, for Instance, gave the married women
a chance to show their proficiency In "rap
ping." Mrs. C. E. Sullivan, who was pre
eminently handy with the .hammer, was
given first prise and Mrs. J. P. Lindsay aec-
Snaaestlve of Beer Ma as.
Ths result of tho twenty-firs yard rase
for members of the Douglaa County Democ
racy only, was strongly suggestive of beer
mugs from the fact that It was won by Mr.
Stein, with Mr. Eppstein second.
A highly amusing event was the fat men's
race, won by C. M. Neustrom. who carried
the top weight. Mr. Neustrom carries his
embonpoint well forward and In action does
not present a particularly graceful figure,
but he managed to out-distance all ot his
competitors and was heartily cheered by
the crowd. y
During a greater portion of the afternoon
a quartet consisting of Messrs. Plattl, Sta
ponhorst, Liberty and Hunter, and directed
by Mr. Plattl, contributed vocal musto to
the general entertainment, and between
other events those who so desired could
throw eggs at the head of a colored man at
so much per throw. The eggs were of un
certain date, but that chiefly concerned the
colored man, except when some enthusiastic
marksman would ' squeeze the egg too

and the one fastened gave a quick Jerk
and the bridle was broken. Then both
horses started on . a run. Owing to ths
broken bridle, Cosgrove was powerless to

There Is a promise of some trouble over the
selection of these primary officers, as at the
meeting of the congressional committee Sat
urday Mr. Breen declared that he would file
his list with the county chairman, as the
person having legal power to provide for the
primary. Mr. Blackburn said:
"If Mr. Breen files his list with the county
chairman It certainly will not be recognized
and if he files his delegations there he will
h A va nnna nn ha CnST?s!0!!Sl ticket. He
must put up $50 with me before he can
name a single delegation, and then pay $2
for each name. If he does not do this we
will have to Ignore blm and we may as well
let that be known now as later."
Dysentery Cared Wlthoat tho Aid of
"I am Just up from a hard spell of the
flux" (dysentery) says Mr. T. A. Pinner, a
well known merchant of Drummond, Tenn.
I used one small bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and
was cured without having a doctor. I con
sider It the best cholera medicine In the
world." There is no need ot employing a
doctor when this remedy is used, for no doc
tor can prescribe a better medicine for
bowel complaint in any form either for
children or adults. It never falls and Is
pleasant to take.
