NEW YORK. Sept. 85.-The De Kalb aae station of the Union road on Broadway, Brooklyn, was the scene Tun- day morning of a guicide. Arthur C. Webb, whe boarded at No. 1309 Broad- way, threw himself in front of 'a west- bound train and horribly mangltd. Webb was 35 years old and until recently was an employe of the Iron Clad Manu- facturing company on Flushing avenue Brooklyn. He lout his position looked in vain for other employment, and bta'iu- ability to find it preyed upon his mind, tor more than a month he hml been in n ineiaucholy mood, and he had frequently threatened to end liig life. His brother Ernest C. Webb, a New York lawyer, paid his board and sometimes visited him Webb'H peculiar actions on Sunilsy prompted Borne of the occupants in the house to keep a watch over him. Wheu he made his appearance on Mon- day morning his mind seemed to be wan- dering, and he suddenly startled his friends by telling them that heart hud ceased to beat. A physician was called in niitl he siid Webb's mind unsettled iind he uce led careful watching. W. bl> was induced to retire about 10 oVlor'c on Mini-lay night, and when Mr an I! ni left him him he api.c.'ir.d to be slumber. Van Horn went to Webb's room to call him next morning and foiin tiie room vacant. Everything indicat d a hurried departure on the part of Webb. His coat hill, which he had hung in a rln-er, ive-e still th re. Van Morn immiMlin idy left the liousu to notify llie police of Webb's disappearance. He railed to discover any clue mid returned home.
