The publication of the story from
Portland that Senator Mitchell would
lend hit support to C. W. Fulton In
the legislature wa received with de
light by Mr. Fulton's friends here, al
though those on th Inside have all
along expected Mitchell to come out
for the Astoria man. However, In view
of the efforta being made by Jack Mat

feared that perhaps the senior senator
might lie prevailed upon to use hit In
fluence for aome other aspirant,, but
this I'enr was without foundation, as
Mitchell It very loyal to his frlenrt. It

MAN COMMITS SUICIDE
BODY POUSD IIASOIXU BY
ItOI"B NEAR RIVKtt.
tiiar!e Johnson, Who Threat-
ened to End Ills Life. Car
rie Out the Threat.
Quite a sensation wa created early
yesterday morning by theannounce
menl that a dead man waa hanging
by a rope from a slip chain on the
water front and Immediately a crowd
of curious people began (locking to the
soot to view the ghaatly sight.
The body proved to be that of
Charles Johnson, m former Inmate of
St. Mary's hospital, where he lived at
the expense of the county, and who,
for the laat two month, ha been try
ing to avoid doing1 hard work. His
failure In this and at the same time
to live comfortably is supposed to have
prompted him to commit aulcide.
The man was 51 years of age and al
ways impressed those wno came In
contact with him tc be In perfect
health and In every way able to earn
his own living. Two months aao he
waa observed on the streets In an In
toxicated condition and indulging In
expensive cigar, so n invetigation a
to his worthiness to receive public sup
port waa at once Instituted, which re
sulted In hi being discharged from the
hospital. He was examined by three
prominent physicians and pronounced
to be devoid of weakness of any kind.
Mr. Johnson, however, disagreed with
the verdict and was constantly com
plaining of varlou ailments to any
who would lend him an audience.
Since his discharge from the hospital
the deceased iiaa been doing odd Jobs
of light employment about th eclty In
which he waa assisted by his two sons,
aged 12 and IS year.
He had ffrown very despondent of
late and several time made threats of
committing ulclde but no attention was
paid to them.
The sequel shows, however, that he
wa In earnest It 1 remembered now,
that on Thursday evening; aa the
steamer Gatxert was leaving her dock
the deceased was seen sitting near the
ship and as the crowd dispersed the
lonely man remained behind looking
at the dark river below and doubtless
contemplating the disatrous course he
was toon to take, yesterday monni.j
at o'clock t)ls lifeless body was found,
by an officer of the launch Swan, sus
pended over the edge of the slip cold
and stiff. A rope Had been attached
to the chain used to lower and raise
the slip and the other end toad been
placed about his neck. Judging from
the position of the body, th suicide had
lowered himself the length of the rope
and had deliberately alowed himself to
strangle to deaath. -
Tha body was taken In charge by
Coroner Pohl and tn the afternoon a
Jury consisting of Max oung, J. T.
Lacv H. M. Lornaten. N. P. Johnan-
sen, D. R. Blount and GuBt Holmes.
was empanelled " and an inquest was
conduetd. The verdict arrived at waa
that deceased came to his death by
straniru'.ation through self-agency. A
letter was found upon his person an
nouncing his intention to commit sui
cide. No arrangements Have yet been
made for the funeral, but in all poba
blltty It will be conducted at the tx-
jense of the county.
