Double Suicide in Lodging House
New York, Dec 30 - The bodies of two men, who had registered as George Weber and George Brown, and who, the police say, had evidently committed suicide together, were found in a room in a Bowery lodging house. Both men were about 32 years of age. Beside Weber was a vial containing cyanide of potassium and a note saying: "If I am successful in my attempt it is the only way out of it, as I can see I am friendless and hopeless. When I am found please get me out of the way as soon as possible."
