In New ton Case.
Coroner J. A. Kelley yesterday visited
the house at 219 North llromley uv

and empaneled a" jury to .ake an
The testimony of Ira D. Newton, a
son of the dead man; Mrs. Newton, the
widow, and A. W. Musgrave, of the
druif tlrm of Jenkins & Wusgrave, was
the most Important. The members of
the family told about the deceased's
visit to the house. He did not live with
his wife on account of his drinking
habits, but he resolved on Jan. 31 of the
present year to quit liquor and ar
rangements were being made for a
reconciliation. He came to the house
about 2 o'clock and spoke pleasantly
with Mrs. Newton nnd went to the
kitchen three times and took a drink"
of water each time. His wife heard
him take a bottle from his pocket and
place It on the Iron sink. She thought
he was taking liquor. The last time he
went for a drink he raised the bottle
to his lips and took a long draught. He
staggered to the front room after tak
ing the drug and expired In a half
hour. Dr. Llndaburg was sent for, but
Newton was beyond recovery. Mrs.
Newton prepared a cup of mustard
water as an emetic.
Ira I). Newton, the son, swore that his
father used aconite us a sedative for
his heart. He often heard him say he
would end his life If any serious matter
ever troubled him. Other witnesses tes
tilled to the same thing. The verdict of
the Jury was to the effect that New
ton's death was the result of drinking
aconite, a poison, In quuntlty sufficient
to produce death.
The funeral will be held Monday
afternoon nt 2 o'clock. Rurlal services
will be conducted at the house by Rev.

The Speaker In forceful Language Urged

of Society Will Close Monday,
At the cathedral last night Rev. Fa
ther Bucholi! delivered a forceful dis
course on the social evils of the day.
Ill graphic language be described the
hellish work of those human cormor
ants who prey upon virtue and honor.
They do the work of the devil, the
speaker Hiid; they wreck lives, send
sou In to perdition, break tho hearts of
loving parents and Send many beautiful
but fragile girls to early and dishon
Father Bucholz besought his heurelH
to lead pure, chaste lives, but told them
that It would be Impossible to do so
wit bout the grace of ( lod. Frail human
nature, unsupported, finds It a dllllcull
task lo resist teniptatlon, therefore we
must have recourse to prayer und the
sacra men ts.
'Be sober, young men," continued the
speaker, "ilo not give way in your early
yeurs to the temptation to Indulge in
strong' drink. By so doing you under
mine your strength ami health, destroy
your good name and cast a blight on
your future. The drunkard does not
deserve success and will not be success
ful. Lxuinplu Are Numerous.
"Look ubout you and see the many
examples of whul Intemperance has
brought men to and then tell me If you
wish to follow their example. St. .Paul
Us us that the drunkard shall not en
r the kingdom of heuven. Be sober
nnd you will be chaste; if you are not
it will be Impossible for you to lead
pure lives. Drunkenness Is the straight
roud that leads to the grossest and
most debasing vices.
'Don't try to please everybody, for no
one has ever succeeded In doing thut
yet. Dare to say no to those who would
lead you Into sin. Retain your self re
spect and strive to please Him before
whose tribunal you will one day huve
to stand. Choose your company and
avoid evil companions."
The speaker opposed long courtships
they Invariably led young people Into
sin. A young man should not pay his
addresses to a young lady .unless hi
has matrimonial intentions, and six
months Is long enough for uny court
ship. The married state Is preferable
to the single, the speaker said, ami
he declared It was the duty of young
men to marry unless they felt that
they were ordained by Cod for a life
celebracy. There Is no honor in being
a bachelor, for he Is usually u sinful
man. He must be either one of two
things a sulat or a very wicked sin
Mixed Marriages Condemned.
Mixed marriages were severely con
demned, as was the practice of read
ing Immoral books and attending thea
trical performances that poison the
mind and destroy respect for morals.
There will be no sermon tonight, the
missionaries deciding to devote the en
tire time to hearing confessions.
Father Bucholz will deliver the ser
inons at 10.:io Sunday morning and on
Sunday evening. Monday night tht
mission will close, when Father Buch
olz will deliver the final sermon. Next
Sunday he will open a mission at St
Stephen's church. Buffalo. Rev. Father
Dciluza left yesterday for Logunsport
Ind., where he will open a mission to
