A msn was found floating down th Mis
souri river last night. Four young men
made the discovery. They -were Dave and
William Tangeman. Ryb Myers and Marry
Renson. They wer down at the river
bank watching the steamboat coming up
from Kansas City, when the body waa
whirled In close to the bank, they waded
Into the shallow water and secured it. O.
It. Brewer waa called to take charge of th
body. The moat superficial examination
showed a case of suicide which could not
have been committed more than half an
hour earlier, or probably the time It would
take for the body to float down from
Omaha. This would be short with the
swollen condition of the river. An In
vestigation of the man's effect and a few
Inquiries showed that hla name was Gott
lieb Hesa. living at th TTnlon hotel, 1023
Mason. He wbr a gold watch of neat
pattern, hunting caae and of German make,
bearing the manufacturer's name, Herm
Lehdrich. The watch waa still running.
There waa So centa in hla pocket book and
a number of papers and receipts. One of
these waa an American Express company'
receipt for a package ent by himself to
a brother, John R. Hess, McPherson, Kan.,
and bearing the date of June 8. He had a
pipe and a pearl-handled knife. The theory
of the undertakers who took charge of the
body I that he walked out on the Douglas
street trldge, or perhar the railroad
bridge, and fired the fatal bullet through
hla brain and fell Into the river. The ball
entered hla face Just back of the right
cheek bone and ranged upward through hla
brain, coming out at the left frontal bone.
Among his effects was a notebook with a
letter written In German script which said
he waa afflicted with an Incurabe disease
and begged forgiveness of heaven for hla
death. A little slip of paper waa also found
having about the same expression.
Inquiry at the Union hotel showed that
there waa no doubt of the Identity of the
man. He had a fixed habit of always being
In hla room at o'clock every night and
the hotel people said at first that he waa
there. But when requested to visit hi
room it was found to be empty. Tho de
scription of the dead man waa so perfect
that there ia no doubt of hla Identity.
The clerk at the hotel also knew of his
sending the express package to hit brother
Wednesday. They stated that Hess wa a
retired termer having considerable means.
He paid hla board with positive regularity
every week. He hat) done no work since
he came to Omaha a year and a half ago.
It waa thought that he had considerable
money deposited In one of the - Omaha
banks. He haa a daughter or a sister in
Illinois, but the hotel people could not
give th address. The brother at McPher
son, Kri., will be notified.
A careful examination superficially gave
no sign of any incurable disease about the.
man. An inquest will in all probability be
held. There waa, however, no evidence of
foul play. Judging from the direction of the
bullet wound and ,tbe fact that none of the
man t valuables were In any way disturbed.
He haa no relatlvea in Omaha so far as
known. , ;

The trlsl of Earl Green for an alleged

crowd of boy and young men who have

players and Earl Green grew so angry that
he dared Nilson to come Into the street.
Nilson went Into the street and Green con

Green, who la a slight built boy. Is said to
have given Nilson, a man thirty pounds
heavier, a good drubbing. Nilson had him
arrested. When requested to dismiss the
case, Nilson said: "No, that boy was on

him. I will not dlamiss the esse." The
