century ago. committed suicide today by

which he gives as a reason for his act do
apondency over continued ill-health and
separation from his friends. The suicide
la auDDoscd to have occurred about 8
o'clock tbia morning.
Younger occupied a room In a downtown
block and when he did not make his ap
pearance as usual today search was made
for blm. About 5 o'clock this afternoon his
door was broken in and "his dead body
found on tho floor beside the bed, with a
revolver clutched tightly In bis right hand.
He had ehot himself through the head and
bad evidently been dead for several hours.
Tounger, since his parole from the atate
penitentiary in July of last year, had lei
an exemplary life, but he was recently
quite seriously hurt by a fall from a wagon.
Other wounds ho bad received earlier In
life also gave him trouble, and although

health 'was precarious and this caused him
much worry. He waa G4 years of age.

To all that la good and true I love and bid

On the other side were these words:

Reporter.: Be my friends.
The envelope contained a package of let
ters that had passed between Tounger and
lady with whom he la said to have been
In love. The lady, who la prominently
connected, is said to have reciprocated hia
affection and it was reported at one time
that they were to be married. The lady's
relatives raised objections to the wedding
rnd a further obstacle waa the fact that a
paroled prisoner cannot legally contract a
marriage. The couple determined to disre

fort waa made to overcome the other ob
taele by securing from the State Board of

James Younger was the youngest of three
brothers, Robert. Cr.leman and James, who
gained great notoriety between 1866 and
1873 through their association with Jesse
and Frank James.
The band, headed by Jesse Jamea, Was
charged with Innumerable robberies of
bank and tralDs, In the execution of wh'cb
inany desperate encounters took place, and
a number of men were killed.
The members of the band had served
through the Civil war, fighting on the aide
of the Confederates with Quantrell and his
guerillas. The scene of the most of their
alleged post-bellum depredatlona was Mis
souri and states adjacent thereto, but In
September, 1878. they entered Minnesota,
traversing the state aa far as Northfleld In
Rice county. There, on September 7, after
terrorising the people on the street, an at
tempt was made to loot the First National
Cashier Fights' to Deaf n. .
Cashier J. L. Haywood, in charge of the
tank, put up a plucky fight and during the
encounter was killed, but not until he had
wounded one or more of the raiders.
The cltltens of Northfleld. quickly recov
ering from the panic into which the raiders
bad thrown them, armed themselves and
started In pursuit.
During the next week the pursuing p-sae
time and again came into contact with the
bandits and exchnnged shota with them
The raiders were handicapped In their re
treat by the wounded, whom thry were en-

the revolutionists outside of La Victoria.
Twice the revolutionary general attempted
to force President Castro to take the

When the rebel reinforcements arrived at
La Victoria last Thursday, President Castro
and bis forces were located at a point on
the German railroad. The rebels made a
detour of the city and cut off their only
road of retreat. They were ttaun short of
ammunition and had It not been for the
arrival of a train bringing them 6OO.C00
cartridges it is believed that Castro's

WILKESBARRE, Oct. 19. Delegates to
the mine workers' convention, which will
meet In the Nesblt theater at 10 tomorrow
for the purpose of considering the proposi
tion of the president with regard to ending
the coal strike, began to arrive today and
about a quarter of them are now In tbe
Strike headquarters, which had been ex
tremely quiet alnce the excitement of last
week, began to be lively before noon today.
Many of the delegates are Instructed In
various featurea of the aettlement, but a
majprlty will follow tbe advice of Mr.
Mitchell. There Is nothing on the surface
tonight that gives the slightest Indication
that the convention will not vote to send
the men to work this week, with the proba
bilities still lu favor of Thursday as the
day of resumption.
A noticeable thing among the delegates
waa their cheerfulness. It waa quite evi
dent that they will be glad to get together
and decide to return to work after the
weary idleness of more than five months.
No Hitch is Feared.
All the delegates who were spoken to
regardiug tho action of tomorrow'a conven
tion appeared to have no fear of a hitch
to disarrange the present peaceful trend of
affairs. A good many say they have In
structions on certain matters which they
will place before the delegates. A large
number of men fear . that In the general
rush to return to the mlnea some of them
may fall to get work. They want aome
assurance from the convention that they
will be able to get the poaltlons they occu
pied before the. suspension was-ordered. It
la likely this element from the three dis
tricts will Join forces and make a concerted
fight for some specific action.
In the face of the fact that the operator
are on record that they will not dismiss
one man who atood by them during the
struggle It la going to be a aerlous prob
lera to solve. The debate, It Is believed,
will take up considerable time.
The meeting. In all likelihood, will be
held behind cloeed doors after formal or
ganization la effected. President Mitchell
will be elected chairman and during the
first seesion he will lay before the dele
gates the plan of arbitration submitted by
Mr. Roosevelt and ask them to act. He will
recommend that the acheme be accepted
and that the men return to work aa quickly

Evanston was garbed In gala day autre
for the occasion. All public buildings and
business houses were draped with Ameri

storea and private residence President
Jamea' picture waa displayed.
The opening exercises today consisted of
religious services, which were held In seven
Evaneton churches, where prayers were of
fered for the future success of Northwest
ern university and for President James' ad
ministration. President .James and mem
ber of the university - faculty attended
services at the First Methodist church and
listened to an address by Rev. William
Dewltt Hyde, president of Bowdoin col
lege, on "The Reconciliation of Our Edu
cational Ideals." He said:. '
There are five educational Ideala strug
gling for supremacy: The physical, the
technical, tne llheral. tne theoretical and
the spiritual. The physical Ideal It much
more than athletic, for It alms at promoting
haltny bodies, with steady nerves and a
cheerful temperature as the basis of a
uxeful and a happy life. The technical
ideal In the ability to earn a living for self
and family, by contributing to the com
munity something aa valuable as the mini
mum on which one is wining to live. The
liberal Ideal is to he at home In all lands
and all ages; to count -nature a familiar
acquaintance and art an Intimate friend,
and to carry the keys of the world's library
in one s pocket and feel Its resources be
hind one In whatever task he undertakes.
The theoretical Is devotion to truth, not
because It Is healthy, or tseful. or edifying,
but for her own dear and precious suke.
The spiritual Ideal Is love to God, hearty
support of all the great Institutions of the
family, the state, the church, the moral
industrial order; acorn to make mean ex
ceptions to just laws In one's own favor
and generous service oft our fellow men.
Each of these Ideals 'Is necessary, yet
neither of them alone In complete. The
physical alone would make a man a great
fat ox. The technical alone would make
one a mere machine lu the Industrial mill.
The liberal alone would make one a mere
dllletant. The theoretical alone makes one
perilously near a crank. The spiritual
alone would make us mere monks and
nuns. These Ideals must be reconciled and
assigned their respective places and propor
tion. Dr. Hyde was followed by Rev. George
E. Reed, president of Dickinson college,
who delivered a sermon on the theme,
"Greatness Through Service."
Among those who spoke at other meet
ings were: Rev. William F. Slocum. presi
dent of Colorado college, on "Winning
Yourself;" Rev. James D. Moffat t, presi
dent of Washington and Jefferson college,

Sermon by T, E. Cramblett.

former Oinha pastor, lie ald in part: -
Commemorative services,- both profane
and sacred, h-tve a double purpose a com
memoration and a declaration. The Lord's
Kupper and Christian baptism are before
our eyes and challenge explanations. They
are the great external evidences of our
faith; they are auxiliaries to faith, arguing
corroborative evidence to all who will listen
to them. The loaf and the cup are per
petual witnesses to the sacrifice on Calvary,
and as long as they remain the hope of
salvation cannot die out of the hearts of
men. Cannot we, therefore, meditate now
on the lessons of the service. It requires
personal preparation. Worship la the out
flowing or the soul toward God.
God demands true character in order to
make acceptable wornhlp. Kvery day of
the week determines the cnaracter of our
worehip on Sunday. The character of the
acceptable worshiper must approximate
holiness. This Is shown by the psalmist
who tells who shall abide In the prewence of
the Holy une. It Is also told by the
Hebrew prophet, who said that true living
Is estumtlnl to true worship.
The Lord's Hupper speaks of Joy and not
of sorrow. It Is a festival and not a fast.
There is a vein of sadness in the historical
view of the supper. There was much in the
surrounding of the first eupper to Increase
the gloom. The evidences chosen by the
bavlor were evidences of sorrow the broken
body and the poured-out blood. Hut from
the sacrifice came our Joy. These elements
now tell of pardon. We are In the sunlight
of (Jod s love. We see not a cruullled
Savior, but an exalted Savior. He Is with
us today. It is true, we remember the
Lord's death, but we remember It until He
comes again In glory. Our redemption has
been secured. We are God's beloved chil
dren. We enter a Father's house, sit down
by His table and are given a Father's wel
come. Jesus does not tell here of en aesthetic
Christ, a beautiful Christ nor a poetical
Chrlxt. It is true that our Bavlor Is Indeed
our life. We live In Him and He Is every
thing to us wisdom and sunctlficatlon, as
well us salvation. Christ is indeed our
Savior the one who bore our punishment.
With the eye of faltn we may eaten a
vlHlon of the glory world above. What
must it be to be there T
This Institution speaks of the love of Ood
as shown In Christ Jesus. The Christ who
could not go to Uethsemane alone now wants
you. Hear His Intercessory prayer for you,
and until that prayer Is answered He has
given you thlo supper. The heavenly love
of Christ will not be satisfied until every
redeemed one Is gathered home.
On Church Above. ,
One family, we dwell In Him on church
