All that is positively known about the Case is that the wounded Man who appears to be not Mare than Twenty five years age had visited the club House previously during the evening and then told the barkeeper that a Man had been following him All night about the City to the Burnet House and also to several drinking resorts and that he found it impossible to avoid him. At the time when he made these remarks he appeared to be sober and rational and during his stay in the club House he Only took three Druks. He left about 2 clock in the morning and had scarcely closed the door behind him when the shot was Beard. Every one in the Bouse at once ran to the spot when the Man was found lying there wounded. No Ono else however who could have done the shooting was noticed. As the wounded Man was found to have a revolver lying near him with one chamber empty it seems by no Means unlikely that he May have shot himself. He was at onco carried to the drug store at the Corner sixth and Vine streets where . 3. Duvis attended him. He was then perfectly con Sobious and in fearful agony repeatedly crying out that he wanted to see his parents before he died. His parents Aro said to be stopping at the Burnet House.
