Bill GARDENS SHUT OUT. 0 I The disappointment of an ambitious man, who had tried in vain to accomplish a task set him by his employers, was summed up In the finding of the body of James B.

Mum-ford, manager of the Photo Product company, 6100 La Salle street. yesterday morning la a room which he had engaged at the Great Northern hotel on the preceding afternoon. Part of the irony of Mumford's fatea note he had written to his wife told of plans for pelf-destructionwait that he chose the sable poisonous chemical to end his life that be had relied on for success in business. It was cyanide of potassium. It-bad failed him as chemical agent.

while it served his purpose as a poison. Working on New Photo Paper. Mumford's chief aim in he had been the manufacture of a new photographic paper with a new kind of paper stock as a basis. Day after day he had worked at this problem In his laboratory at the Photo Product factory. And always one of the chief chemical agents used In the problem at hand was the poison he used to kill himself.

He had come to Chicago six week's before. with his wife and son. from Springfield. to take charge of the factory of the company. so that the time he might devote to his work of experimentation was limited.

To nis associates it seemed that the latter hardly merited the extra hours of labor he devoted to it, but to Mumsford It was all important He became despondent. He told his family that if he was no more use to the world" he mighe as well kill himeelf. From time to time he complained of pains in the head. His wife and son and friends of the family at the Del Prado hotel. where they were living, strove to rouse his spirits.

but without success. Indications of Previous Attempt. On last Thursday. while at work in his office. Mumford suddenly lapsed into unconsciousness.

He watt removed to St. Bernard's hospital, where he regained consciousness three hours later. A physician who attended him there said yesterday that he detected fumes on the breath of the unconscious man similar to those of cyanide of potassium. but such evidence of a prior attempt at suicide Is not 'substantiated. Mumford was removed from the hospital Thursday afternoon and taken to his apartments at the Del Prado.

where he spent the night. In the morning, he declared he had recovered and. after eating breakfast with his family. left the hotel. saying he was going to his office.

That was the last his family saw of him alive. When he did not return to the hotel in the eveting the police department was notified-and detectives searched the neighborhood of his office. The search was to have been continued yesterday morning. but at 10:50 -o'clock several letters in Mumford's handwriting. two of them addressed to his wife.

were received at the Del. Prado. JOne of these letters said his body would be found at the Great Northern. It was found that MumfOrd had registered at 5 o'clock in the afternoon of the day preceding as F. Thurston, Elkhart, Ina." The door to the room was locked on the onside and a bellboy climbed over the transom and opened the door.

On the floor of the bathroom. face downward. lay the body of ford. Coroner's Xnquest Held. -a! Mumford'is suicide wale a clear case of deepondency." said F.

L. Brigham. a part owner of the Photo Product company. me was a man who did not spare himself in his work. and he had worked night and day to make a new kind of photographic paper.

The results he achieved were irregular. He didn't seem to be able-to get uniform reeults. He complained that he was not getting the right kind of assistance. His failures preyed on his mind. I don't believe he was la his right mind 'When he killed Mumforets son.

H. E. Mumford. who attends high school. also testified.

He said that his father had been despondent for many months, and often had said that he might as well be dead as unsuccessful." OAK PARK PEOPLE FIND VILLAGE ALEEADY PROTECTED. IMAGE 1. NEVI BUILDING: 01,11 ODORS ft r. rt et of Ui rt 1. f.

Disinfectants Neutralise Some of the the Work Is -Not Yet Defects in lotion System Force Air from Says Reformer Trifles with Truth and Enjoys, Special Privileges. Congressman James R. Mann again and more bitterly than before assailed William Kent and Senator Parker in a speech deityered last night at 211 Fifty-fifth street.

The speaker gathered together the epithets that he neglected to launch at Mr. Kent at previous meetings and discharged them in a broadside. He used the terms yellow cur," hypo-. crite, pipe dreamer," and other uncomplimentary words in referring to Mr. Kent.

The big audience cheered when be declared that Mr. Kent lied in charging him with forging his name. Then he returned Kent's fire' by making the charge that the latter's prop. ertles at Forty-third street and Calumet avenue are benefited by a conduit running across the street without compensation to the city. Two hundred people were turned away from the meeting because of the lack of room in the hall.

A politician become accustomed to libel and But here tonight, I intend to refute the charges made by Billy Kent in his letter to the press" He rays in his reply to me that Kirk Hawes lived at, 2223 Calumet avenue in his attempt to show that Hawee lived in my dietrict.

addrees given was rot in the old First congressional district. And Mr. Kent does not etc to remember that the old Third ward etarted at Twenty-sixth street. That fact alone rails his accueation as a lie. Kent has posed as an opponent of special privileges.

He has declared against special privileges without special compenrationN He has been a leading spirit in the Municipal Voters' league He has declared that the street railways must pay for the use of the streets and that merchants must pay for sidewalk space. Kent's Special Privileges." But since 1814 he ha been eperating a sixteen Inch pipe across the street at Forty-third street ard Calumet avenue for the purpcse of supplying three buildings with heat, water, and steam. The pipe contains a seven inch low pressure pipe, a two atd one-half Inch -high pressure pipe, a two inch hot water pipe, and one and a half inch cold water pipe. "The city never has got after hint yet. but I guess It will tow.

The city does not get one cent of extra compensation -for the use et the street for those pipes. Kent or some members of hie family last year succeeded in laying electric light and telephone conduits under the street. I The city received elO a year for a privilege that might be worth nom. 1 never have made such use of the street myself. Kent has done so and has been a hypocrite.

As to the letter I wrote, don't know whether it was the result of a pipe dream cr an Extra drink- It is mere billingsgate that comes cf fleeting ideas that go with a certain condition. A fishwife could beat him at it. I expect to meet these falsehoods. A chameleon is said to be able to change color quickly, but be has got to hustle if he can do so quicker than Billy Kent can change his opinion. If he has any apology-to offer he can do it best by getting out of town.

1 don't want his support." Also Assails Senator Parker. Congressman Mann then turned his attention to Senator Parker. He quoted from letters of Tem TRIBUNE correepondent at Washington, In explaining the aggressive and secret tactics of the Standard 011 company in its efforts to defeat legielaticn prejudicial to its interests Mr. Mann defended the Elkins anti-rebate law. declaring that it practically has done away with the giving of rebates.

The rebate law is better enforced than is the law against murdsr in Chicago." he declared. The speaker poked fun at the defeat of the primary law. He asserted that it was planned so as to have the primaries come at a time when the congressmen would be obliged to be in Washington, thus giving the candidates from the state legislature a better chance to conduct a campaign. It is a pity that the legislature could not have framed a bill which would contain at least one provision out of 100 that would be sustained by the Supreme said Mr. Mann.

Parker Keeps Up Attack. While Congressman was engaged in assailing Senator Parker the latter. was speaking at Price's ball, Seventieth street and Stoney Islard avenue. Mr. Mann has declared that be has the goods en me," said Senator Mann.

He said be could prove that he is being oppored in this district by the Standard Oil company. He failed to pi-educe any such evidence, but later he intimated that I am a socialist. He neglects to mention why the Standard Oil crowd wish to elect a socialist to congress. The truth is that Mr. Mann now finds his career in congresses a champion of trusts Is distasteful to his constituency, and he trembles before its righteous indignation.

EL FOztA The massmeeting called by the Oak Park Improvement association last night to take Immediate steps to convert the village into an ironclad -district found that there was no need for emergency service of that sort. This developed in the report of the epecial committee appointed to run down the rumor that a wealthy German proposed to establish- a beer garden within the village. The committee declared that impossible as the village was under the protection of the old ordinance adopted by the town of Cicero Old Ordinance Enough. It is an anomalous sitUation." said Attorney Walter Holden.

a member of the committee, but it la true nevertheless that we are better protected under that old ordinance than we would be if the village board passed a special ordinance creating this a prohibition territory. No one can locate a beer garden here until he has a petition containing the names of 24 per cent of the voters and has won out in a referendum on the Question of license or no license." This reassured most of the property owners present tnd the matter was dropped, though not until one man had warned them of the increasing cosmlipolltamism of the village." 4 I wouldn't be a bit surprised." he said. pessimistically, to see 25 per cent of the residents. especially some of these new one', sign a petition of that sort." Village Has Smoke Nuisance. Mrs.

Daniel G. Trench submitted a report that Oak Park has a smoke nuisance of its own. The ordinance says that the police should arrest the offenders." she reported. Well. the Northwestern railroad engineers are the worst offenders.

Should the police arrest them and take them off the engines? I wish you'd appoint some men on this committee, too."

inanageti of the Car Service association. This-letter is also saki to reflect the views of the Harvester company. In it he says: By diligent inquiry among our fore I lodge the question in dirpute is whether. the Illinois, Northern railway company -8411 pay the tame per diem for cana---20 cents per which other railway companies pay; or whether it shall pay Il per day demurrage.

considerable eonvenience to people located in than settee sa well as to the International Harvester antnany. Stickney Takes Firm Stand. Yr. Stickney goes on to say that he be-- tevet there is merit in the contention of the Northern that it should be put on the tame basis as to per diem as the Belt railway and Other-switching lines in he makes this important point: And it also seems to me probable that if Input on that basis that the railway corn-wain will actually collect and keep the-20 tea per day, while if it is put on the basis of per day demurrage in ail probability'the hisays will assume this per day. and thereby get nothing for the use of their Mt Whether we concede the principal or ex, I certainly cannot permit the Chicago Gnat Western road.

Stickney takes the and so does the tarvester company, that if any railroad ktepts a cartoad of freight consigned to the Northern road, it is bound by law to telmer it, and can be compelled todo- so. lie So argues that it is against the law for 1--sirced company to refuse to deliver ears refuse to receive from connecting lines en consigned to points on the Illinois Northtth railway company. Despite the attempts which Eavebeen made by the' posteffice department to eliminate the unpleasant odors of the new federal building the disturbing smell iptill remains with little less Intensity-- than before the campaign' began a few weeks ago.j Although the remedy of disinfeetiott has been applied to the subway beneath the building the odors continue to penetrate tie-rooms and corridors above became cf the alleged de-recta in the ventilating tystem.

The use nt disinfectants has accomplished considerable in neutralizing the smelt but the draft -ofair caused by the open driveway apparently forces the disagreeable and impure air in the basementi)ack into the upper stories of the building. It is claimed by those who have been investigating the present process of ventilation that impure air which is forced downward and out through exhaust pipes leading to the subway is forced up some -of the air ducts again by the draft of air from the driveway. Among the changes to be made is an arrangement for a number of new windows in the mall tack room, where much of the strong and noxious smell originates. Other efforts to make the conditions more sanitary and agreeable are to be made. It is probable that the bad air wIlich now is exhausted into the subway ard forced back upstairs, will be sent through some other As long as the present method Is employed' bad air will continue to fill the building notwithstanding the improvements obtained through the process of disinfecting the subway and mall sack rooms.

Another defect in the ventilation, it is charged, is caused by the open mall conveyor passageway from the basement to the second floor. Through this large duct'disagreeable currents of air constantly rise to the upper floors. The employes of the building are thankful. however, for the disinss fectants -which are being used under the direction of F. J.

Tucker. Engineer Buckley of Washington, still is here studying tht defects in the ventilatios with a view of making improvements. 1 GRAND AND UPRIGHT (I) 1.
