SpendingHis Fortune and Life to Perfect an Invention NEW YOKK March San Francisco Chronicle Su special says John Griscolm formerly of California a man of science but an unsuc cessful inventor was found in his office at 47 Park street this morning sitting dead at his desk with a blanket wound around hit head and a rubber tube with its one end fastened to a gas jot and tho other around to his coat collar iii such a way that the gas poured directly into his nostrils and open mouth Griscolms office is a littlo three cornered shop littered with tools and cog wheels In this place ho had been working for years over a patent wheel brake which ho could not get any road to adopt or any capitalist to manufacture His brother H Griscolra who is employed by the Western Union Telegraph company says that his brother had spent all of his fortune which amounted to in his ciVorts to push his invention to completion His wife and three children are still living in California For tho last few weeks he lias been soiling out all of his ollico furniture and fixtures Everything upon which ho could raise money was dis posed of oven to his stovo Last night ho went across the street to tho machine shop of H Buhler who has modeled all of his tools for him and begged him to buy his desk and office chair Btihler did not want it but took the desk and agreed to leave it there that night This morning a young man from tho Union Foundry went across the street to see Griscolm and let himself in with a key which tho inventor had given to tho men iu tlio foundry Tho moment tho young man opened tho door the gas and al most choked him Ho waited aminute be fore ho entered and when he did so saw the body of Griscolra lying back limp and strangelooking in an armchair Every window and skylight

and that at last served with horrible appro priateness to take On in front of him were several letters The gen eral tenor of them was that his life had been unsuccessful and that he was better out of tho way not only for his own sake but for that of his family His great work one which ho failed to have used was in the nature of an air brake to be placed on axle wheels and was especially adapted tc freight cars Ho had worked over this for fifteen years Griscolm was the son of Dr John H Griscolm lit one time a wellknown this city Mrs Griscolm and childrenareat Lake villo California A few hours

on JRegulationr WASHINGTON PanAmeri can Congress has adopted the report of the committee on the subject of sanitary regu lations The report says In part Tho committee carefully examined the work of the special conferences and congresses which havo mot at diiTerent times and has reached the conclusion that it dis charged its duty by making a se lection from among those works which are tho result of exhaustive studies made by men eminent in tho science of medicine in Europe as well as America Complete isolation which theoretically ap pears to be the most effective prophylactic against the inArasion of epidemic diseases docs not atford In practice satisfactory re sults as a sanitary measure but tends on tho other hand to notably injure the com mercial interests of the countries But if absolute isolation as prophylactic is nothingmore than an illusion the same may not be said of tho sanitary means that mod ern science has placed within our reach for tho disinfection of infected localities as as pre vent the introduction and development of contagion in those which remained in a state of health The Rio Janeiro conven tion and tho draught of tlioCongress at Lima are works which may serve as a model with respect form and general idea for sanitary conventions The greater of South America on tho Atlantic are guided andgoverned by the decision of tho international Sanitary Convention at lllo Janeiro of 1SS7 and althoughit does not appear that the plans of tho Sanitary Con ross at Lima of 1SS3 havo passed into tho category of International co ty the Committee hopes they will be accepted jy tho governments that participated in said congress The sanitary conventions of Rio Jaiiiero and Lima agree inessential provisions If their rules and regulations wore duly observed

Francisco Chronicle and Express Rome cable Notwithstanding al denials that the Pope is seriously 111 th truth has at last leaked out and occurrences of late point to tho belief that tho death o Leo XIII is not far off A recent conclave received from tho Pope an intimation tha his death seeracd near and that ho desired to recommend Cardinal Vantelli as his suc cessor His Increasing debility under

course of The German Situation BERLIN March the results of tho second ballots reported today the dis astrous defeat of tho Cartel coalition was confirmed and tho same figures put in a stronger light tho triumph of tho German Liberals and Socialists Four districts in this city in which tho first canvass was un decided are known to have been carried by the German Liberals Returns from tlio provinces received up to p m con tinue to disclose in every direction tho do feat of the National Liberals and tho suc cess of tho popular candidates of tho various stripes Perhaps tho most surprising feature of this activity of tho popular element is the lively reappearance of the Volks party or Democrats in all the districts where tho Socialists did not put up candidates Bismarck is already planning and nego tiating a reconstruction of the Government majority by manipulation of In tho now scheme the Center party will re place tho National Liberals as they stood in tho Cartel Tho elections have resulted in a fall restoration of thePrincos control over tho Emperor Ho never seriously intended to retire but would rather havo retired than have played tho part of a figurehead His giving out of a purpose to resign calls tho Emperors attention to tho fact that it would be a logical consequence of his separating himself from tho Chancellor and doubtless ledhim to reflect upon what ho was to do without him As soon as the adverse result of tho elections wore percep tible this reflection must havo loomed up as ono of serious moment and all this led tho Emperor to an unqualified adhesion to tho Princes projected parliamentary plan The first measure showing the drift of tho scheme is the revival of active relations with the Vatican An important point is Bismarcks recommendations as to tho de tails ofa restitution to tho Catholic clergy of the sums sequestrated during the Kul tnrkampf Report also credits the Em peror with having Avritten personally to the Pope on the close connection of his proposed State Socialism with Christian Socialism as embodied in Papal allocutions In addressing tho Council of State at the close of todays session the Emperor declared that his aims in the social problem were not ideal He did not hope to dis cover somo grand remedy for tho cure of all social evils He desired rather and simply that a determined eilort be made to find means to satisfy the legal demands and just wishes of the working people It is not thought the coming international labor conference will amount to much al though tho Emperor is sanguine England and France having objected to the consid eration of the nine hours this part of the programme has been amended and practic ally withdrawn Thus tho conference al ready assumes tho character of an academic meeting in which many theoretical sugges tions will be made A Popular American in London LONDON March Dispatch San Francisco Chronicle is one American here who is always welcome not only in

Times or the Standard or the and he is often in demand by weekly papers for re view of some book of current interest but he prefers storywriting as a matter of choice and as a mutter of pecuniary profit It is a mystery to English men how he manages to depict such wonderful pictures of American life and habits that he does If Bret Harte is any suinghe is truly an American author He las never

Pacific Company levins resolved to put on steamship line etween Tacoma and Ohirfa and Japan his la jrendered by the Canadian Pacific and it was thought better to make tho arrangement if practicable with one of the existing lines preferably the Pacific Mail The rosult of tho arrangement if made will be each trans continental line will be upon an equal foot ing as to China and Japan business Tho proposed arrangement will in no manner affect transcontinental rates On tho con trary it will have a tendency to make them more permanent The disadvantage if any of the iho arrangements will be the

Thursday Tho rumors set adrift by the saloon element that tho man hud fallen on tho sidewalk and broken his neck proved to bo false Tho evidence shows tho man was murdered by a crowd of tho saloon element iu Wilsons saloon It was shown that tho man laid on tho saloon floor about two hours while the gang mado up the story to circulate as to how ho carno to his death On tho stand Wilson claims that nothing was used except lists but this is contra dicted and tho marks on tho dead roans face show it to have been battered up with somo instrument probably a gun When it was found that ho did not got up they dragged him to ono side of the room throw a blanket over him and mado out that ho was asleep instead of stunned as they sup posed A short time after that they went to him and found him dead Then commenced the plotting to cover up tho crime and mako it appear that had fallen over somo empty beer bottles on tho sidewalk But for the weakening of Wilson this would probably have remained an un told story Even as tho matter stands Wil son has allowed tho guilty ones to escape not telling it until thoy were hundreds of miles away and he will probably be held an accessory Everything was running along smoothly until this afternoon when Bob Wilson weakened and told tho supposed facts in tho case Ho says Gleason had been drink ing considerably all tho evening and into his placo about midnight and claimed that ho could whip any twenty men in Col linston It was not long umil lie and a bartender by the namo of Fletcher were fighting Gleason being a powerfullybuilt man was getting tho

not to bo divulged until the arrests are made Tho facts as given were obtained by continual pumping as the entire investigation Is to be kept quiet for tho present The entire day has been given to hearing witnesses and a shorthand writer was on hand to take down all the testimony The corpse was shipped to Farmjngton this morning and the funeral will probably take place there on Sunday afternoon Tho prosecuting attorney is still in town gaining all the new information obtainable It is understood that ho will have all the gamblers pulled and try to break up so much gaming in this town as the idea seems to be that this was at the back of Thursday mornings tragedy Fights and brawls are occurring nearly every day and it is a won der that more men are not killed The following is tho verdict of the jury We the jury find that Hyrum Gleason came to his death by heavy blows struck by T H White while struggling with H Fletcher Also other men were impli The Hurley Bank Bobbery ASHLAND March 1
