WILL G. SMITH TAKES THE MORPHINE
R0UTET0 THE OTHER SHORE.
Letters Ua Uehlml -His History FsUl Infitua-
tlon for a virlety Actress.
William G. Smith n young man about
23 yenrs of age committed suicide yes-
terday afternoon nt Ids room on Accqtiln
street by taking a dose of morphine. He
took tho fatal doso about llvo o'clock
and a physician was'at oneo summoned
to his aid. Tlio stomnch nunp and an-
tidotes to the otson wcro used but nil
efforts to savo his life proved futile nnd
3:1 Ji last night ho breathed his last.
.Smith came here some two months ago
with his wife who has slnco been tilling
an engagement at the Vniulevlllo theatro
as a song and danco artist. Her stage
name Is LJzzlo Slack which was her
name when she olnlms to have married
Smith. Will Smith was born In Waco
Texas where he now lias u brother and
sister nnd up to 11 few months ago was
possessed of property of some value
owning an Interest In tho Central City
hotel building on llrldge street nnd also
In other property In Wnoo. He became
deeply infatuated with Lizzie Hack who
was then playing at tho Horso Shoe
vnrlcty theatro in Waco of which her
mother Annlo Mack was proprietress.
A few days before Christmas or last
year ho ran off with the girl nnd went up
tho Central road to Meridian in Hosque
county where she olnlms they were mar-
ried by a Justice of tho peace on Christ-
mas day. He returned to Waco and dis-
posed of his property nt a great saorillco
and with tho woman started off for other
scenes Some two months or more ugo
they happened in at Temple In Hell
county and put up nt tho Eagle hotel
where they remained over night taking
tho Missouri Paolllo noxt morning for
Snn Antonio and they have been here
since. While In Temple Smith's actions
and inquiries as to how to procure a
marriage license nroused the suspicions
of other guests of the house that tho
couple wero not really married and they
were treated to a little uharlvarl sere-
nade. Arrived in San Antonio the
woman went to playing nt the Vaude-
ville and Smith knocked around the city
doing nothing. He became Jealous of
his wife and accused herof having ceased
to love him.
Tin! substance of the testimony before
Justice Adam by whom an Inquest was
held on the body this morning Is that
Smith wenf out several times yesterday.
Last trip ho went across the street to
Selby's saloon returned and laid down
on his bed. His wife who was out came
In and he told her that he had taken
morphine. She ran Into Mr. Laux's
apartments nnd begged him to run for a
dootor. When she returned Smith told
her he had fooled her and had not taken
morphine; that he said so to see If she
would care whether ho did or not. Ho
appeared to be all right and she
left him again and In n few minutes he
turned black In tho face and showed
other symptoms of violent Illness. A
physlolan was sent for and after a great
deal of trouble and loss of time one was
secured. Ho used his stomach pump
nnd administered antidotes but fulled
to revive his patient who died in a few
hours. Mrs. Smith returned shortly be-
fore her husband breathed ills last. In
her testimony before the coroner's Jury
she says that Smith waked her about 11
o'olook yesterday morning and told her
she did not care for him any more. She
told lilm not to talk so and ho spoke to
her no more until dinner time which
was between 1:30 and 3 p. m. He then
said ho was going across the street went
out and returned in 11 few minutes with
a package of powder In his hand. He
emptied It Into n glass of water and she
knocked It out of his hand breaking the
glass. She asked what It was and ho
told her It was none of her business and
she couldn't stop hlin from drinking
what ho was going to drink that day.
She afterward went out returning about
4 o'clock. As alio came In he said
"Lizzie I have done it." She nsked
"what?" He replied Taken mor-
phine." The testimony Is then as above
Smith was evidently grcntly wrought
up. Several notes were found in tho
room copies of somo of which we here
"Good bye lltllo one. God bless you;
be 11 good woman and my last word'i are
theso I lnvo you and God bless you.
Don't blame yourself for what 1J have
done. Telegraph to Dob tn tho morning.
He will send for my body. Your
" God bless you Lizzie."
Another one reads :
"My Uttlo darling you have tired of
1110 and I have nothing to live1 for. I
guvo up money friends nnd position for
you and now have lost you Mny God
forglvo you as I do for what ym have
done. Good byo Uttlo one telegraph to
Hob nt Waco."
The third reads :
"My darling I can't leave you forever
until I say a few moro words to you.
You killed me Just us much as If you
had taken n pistol nnd shot me. I
begged and entreated you to stay with
1110 this one evening but you would not
do It. God bless you my Uttlo girl you
never kno v how I loved you. That was
the troublo you know now for I did not
care to live after you quit loving me. I
forgive you freely nnd hope you forglvo
inc. Little one I often told you that
you never know how I loved you. You
cannot doubt It now. Good bye my on-
ly love and God bless you.
Number 4 Is stronger nnd reads :
"Darling I often told you I loved you
better than my life. You know now
that I told you the truth for I waited
until I was certain you did not care for
1110 any more; then I died. - Will."
Tho following two wcre'-firobably tlio
"Oh my darling you did not know
how t loved you or you could not have
quit me. Your Willie."
"My Uttlo darling before you read
this 1 will he gono where 1 will nover
trouble you again I must tell you be-
fore I die how I have loved you and
how true I have been to you even when
I quarreled with you and now lovo you
better than my life for as soon as I was
certain you had ceased to care for me I
wanted to die. Darling don't blame
yourself. Little one I killed your lovo
by the way I treated you. My last
words to you aro theso; I lovo you
and forglvo you everything. Good byo
nnd God bless you. Karowell forovcr
my only love. I know Just what I am
doing but don't care to live since I have
lost your love. Good bye Uttlo one.
The following letter which was found

AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM THE

Santa Fe Is indeed a historical ancient
city. From tho time of the Spanish in
vasion tn 130 when the Indians from
their strongholds tn tho mountains do-
lled and repelled all Intruding civiliza-
tion and decreed the land should ever
bo a waste and a wilderness this olty
almost up to the present time might
ttttlngly be called "dark and bloody
ground." It has been captured and re-
captured at the price of human life and
upon tho pages of Its history aro written
some of the most terrible conflicts over
known. The date of Its settlement Is
some time previous to lf3U as the
.Spaniards under Ponco do I.con at that
time found an Azteo town of some Im-
portance There Is still standing a two
story adobe building that was here at
that date and is known to have been
built 318 years. A Mexican family lives In
this house which Is doubtless the oldest
Inhabited dwelling In the United States.
Near this is the oldest church eto.havlng
been built of adobe tn 1542 by tho
Spaniards; was partially destroyed by
tho Indians during a war n hundred
years after but was repaired afowycars
later. Here Is a bell weighing two
thousand pounds and bears the date of
ISM having been mado In Spain nnd
sent here. It has called together wor-
shipers within theso sacred adobe walls
for 302 years and Btlll performs the same
mission. The Interior of this church Is
very common although tho beams sus
taining the roof are elaborately oarred
It Is still In a fair state of preservation
and used as a plaoe of worship. As a
piece of architecture it Is a failure as a
relio of antiquity a success twenty-live
cents please when you get done looking
ut It. The Governor's Palace an adobo
concern built somo 300 years ago was
