not required to disregard tho conditions

CLOSING A USEFUL LIFE.
EX-SPEAKER RANDALL IN AN ALARM
Thoro Is Anpnrontly No Doubt that
tho Distinguished t'ennsylvanlan Is
Dylnc Ills Family Said to Ilaro
Lost All Hope of llecovory.
The days of cx-Spcakcr Samuel J.
Randnll arc numbered. His death is no
longer a question of weeks, or oven of
day?, but Is limited now to tbo hours nil
too swiftly ticked off upon tho clock.
Ho rallied yesterday, but, after
nightfall, ho becamo worso
again, nnd his physicians, Drs. Lincoln
nnd Malnn, wero summoned and re
mained with him, doing what lay In
their power for tho stricken statesman.
Tbo distinguished patient fell Into n
stato of collapso and becamo uncon
scious. The family havo lost tho feelings of
hopo nnd confidence In Mr. Randall's
ultimate recovery which has buoved
them up heretofore. They havo sent a
request to newspaper men not to call at
tho houso. This request, of
course, Is observed by all. Tho
family nro In no condition to
glvo out news and It Is simply cruel and
heartless to go there after it. What
news tbero Is will bo given out by Dr.
Malan, who, at 0 o'clock, left Mr. Ran
dall's bedside to call upon his other
patients. Ho will bo sccu nt his olllco
Mr. Cramer, bis private secretary,

this morning: "I havo only bad nows

in a very alarming stato."
Representatives O'Neill and Harmer
were Inclined to discredit tho discour
aging news, nnd tho former displayed
indignation at tbo reports sent out yes
terday. Mr. Harmer went nway to
make Inquiries for himself, and when
ho returned ho said to Mr. O'Neill:
"The news is very discouraging."
Thcro is no doubt annarentlv but
tbo ex-Speaker is dying, dying slowly
and courageously, fighting fate with tho
iion resolution and tho firm, undaunted
front he has displayed all through life,
on tho field of battle and on tho iloor of
tho House, whero bo was so long a
Dr. Malan, Mr. Randall's pbvslclan,
whllo admitting that his patient is
"about as sick as a man can be and
live," says that he is a shade better
this afternoon nnd that bis family do
not fear immediate dissolution. There
Is a moro healthy flow of pus from the
abscess to-day, and Dr. Malan says
that the patient is conscious and recog
nises the members of tho familv.
Speaker Reed called at-Mr. Randall's
house this morniug. He was not ad
mitted to seo htm. Mr. Randall's
filends believe that ho has but a few
dovs more to live.

about $50,000 in first class securities be
longing to the bank. It Is not yet
known whether Kimball Is also a de

rived In the city last evening. A letter
was iccelvcd by Mrs. Kimhall from
Montreal yesterday, which bad been
sent by Kimball to tho postmaster at
Montreal, to bo rcmailcd by htm to

Beaver docs not seem to bo a favorite
in this end of Pennsylvania, even
nniong tho church people. Yesterday
tho local commlttco of tho International
Sunday-school Congress, which 13 to ho
held in Pittsburg in Slav and Juno, re
ceived a letter from B. F. Jacobs, presi
dent of tho congress. It was in icgard
to the securing of speakers to deliver
addresses of welcomo to tho congress
when it meets.
Mr. Jacobs said tbo executive com-
:mlttco desired to havo Sunday-school
workers mako these addresses. Thero
are to be thrco of these, If they aro short
enough, nud rcsponslvo addresses from
tbo president nnd four gcntlemcu from
different sections of tho country. Mr.
Jacobs suggested that Governor Beaver
was a Sunday-school man and would bo

just where tho trouble comes In.
Tbo commlttco won't havo Governor

Gcncinl Lleber this morning. Gon
ciul Schofield said this afternoon that
tbo findings of tbo court would bo an

This fact settles ono point that Is,
that Lieutenant Steele will not bo dis

that Lieutonant Steele will simply be
reprimanded, though ho may bo sus

Tho crime for which William Bar
tholomew wns executed was tho cold
blooded murder of bis friend, Anron
W. Dlllnrd, on Friday, September 0,
1889, after having led his wlfo 03tray.
Tho preparations wero made with
coolness, Bartholomew making bold his
plans to Mrs. Billiard. At first sho
would not listen to him, but finally bo
persuaded her to play her part In tho
On tbo Wednesday night previous to
tbo murder Bartholomew went to Dll
Hard's homo whllo ho was absent. Bar
tholomew sent Jnko Dllllard, Iho 13-year-old
son of bis victim, on an errand,
nnd then he and Mrs. Dllllard arranged
tbo final details.
Bartholomew took Dllllard's gun,
which stood behind the door, and re
moved tbo pin which strikes tho cap In
tho cartridgo when tho gun Is fired,
thus mnklng the gun useless. Bartholo
mew wns to como after midnight, nnd,
by disturbing the chickens, make them
cackle. This was to be tbo signal for
Mrs. Dllllard to rouse her husband, tell
him that somo ono was trying to rob tho
ben roost and send bim out to his death.
Sho was to glvo him his gun nnd
nlso a lantern. Sho was to tell him to
go towaid a certain tree which stood
beside tho road, hold up the lantern
nnd look close If any chickens wero up
there. Bartholomew was to bo behind
the tree, and ho would shoot him. This
plan was can led out to the letter. Bil
liard was riddled with shot, and thotizh
not killed outright bo died before he
could get Into the bouse, toward tvhlch
he ran after receiving the fatal wound).

circumstantial, caused the conviction o"f
Bartholomew and herself. Her santenco
was commuted to Imprisonment for life,
nnd she is now confined In the Eastern
