At half past eleven yesterday morn
ing Dr. M. P. Jennings shot himself
in his office, northwest corner Cass and
Squeinoqha streets, inflicting a wound
that will in all probability prove fatal.
The bullet, which was from a re.volver
of 38 calibre, entered over tho left
terapb. Tho sad occurrence is a mat
ter of profound regret to all, he boing
universally known and esteemed. It
is thought that recent financial loise3
and mental depression prompted the
act. Near by was found n letter,
written in a cloar. firm hand, which

W. S. Failing who went to S.m
Francisco a short time since to bring
up a lot of young black bas3 for Capt.
Ainsworth, returned on the Columbia
without tho fish. This failure says
the Standard, was owing to a habit
these fish havo of hibernating. In
eastern waters they disappear in No
vember, burying themselves in the
mud and in the crevices among the
rocks at tho bottom, from which they
emerge again in April. Mr. Failing
was well aware of this habit, bnt
thought that in tho mild climato of
California they would not go into
winter quarters so early. But the
fish evidently have a time table, as a
day's dilligent seining m Temescal
lake failed to secure a single specimen,
although only a few days beforo a
dozen or more were takon at each
