SUICIDS IN ALBANY.
E. H. Burnham Found Dead Near the
Monday night about 1130 o'clock
Carleton Sox and Clem Irylne were
accompanying some youngladios homo
from a reception at the College, when
they discovered the body pf a man
lying partly on the sidewalk uud part
ly on the raised ground beside it at the
southeast corner of the Unlttd Presby
terian' church. Thinking It was A
drunken man the young men notified
Aightwatchnian Jones, who, accom
panied by Dr. Hill and son who were
just returning home from a professional
visit, went, to the place and examined
the man who was found to be dead.
The body was taken to Nn. I's engine
house. Judge Powell, acting ascoroner
took it in charge and examined the
man's pockets. The right pantaloon
pocket was turned oul, some keys and
a pocket knife were in Hie other pocket,
a handkerchl f and $1.35 in a hip
pocket, a , pair of eye glasses, a small
mirror and a watch key .lii his vest
pocket. There was no watch. He
wore a brown suit of clotlies, nnd a
Masonic pin was fastened to his vest.
On his person were found pupersthow-
ing his name to be E. H. Burnham,
and that he formerly belonged to the
Masonic- lodgj of Corvallis. iA bullet
hole passed through his vest, which
as slightly powder burned,! and hV
shirt, just below his heart, awl ranging
into his heart. About twelve feet back
of where he was found was a revolver.
About 11 o'clock several people in the
vicinity heard a shot fired, and at
least two think they heard some one
cry for help. Mr. Walter iPeacook,
who returned home about, that time
from the College, heard a shot fired,
and awhile after saw a couple of men
run past the county. Jail. It Is doubt
ful though if it had any connection
with the shooting. Mr. Read on
returning borne awhile before saw the
man in the vicinity of the chur-h. He
bad also been seen near there during
the day and on Sunday. ' " '." .,
Mr. Burnham came from Portland
on r ridny and registered at the St.
Charles. He bad formerly ' boarded
with Mr. Giblin in CorvaliiS. There
are two torsions of the matter, one
that the man was murdered, the oilier
that he committed suicide. The latter
is probably the correct one. Burnham
had lieeu despondent and had remai ked
in the morning that he was about
broke and didu't know what tie should
do. Last yeur he worked in Chicago
on the fair buildings, being A painter
and paper banger, and bad contracted
rheumatism, which was troubling
him, as a chronic case of neuralgia.
Several circumstances Indicated that
he contemplated suicide, and It is a
peculiar fact that just before being
awakened and notified, Mr. Giblin
had dreamed that he had done the act,
the man's conduct evidently having
mude the impression on his mind. H
position when found showed. th.re had
been no struggle; the revolver had
evidently been thrown over his head
as lie fell back, on the ground, and lie
probably cried out as if for help. He
probably had not been carrying a
watch. The weight of evidence is de
cidedly on the side of suicide, and In
flicl there, is little doubt on the sub
ject. " ' '

age, He wasslngle, ond (s well spoken
