The Doctors Consider His Condition

THE CLOSE OF AN HONORED CAREER.

Jtistlre Samuel F. Miller of the Su

of the left side yesterday afternoon
while on his way homo from the Capi
tol, lie had bcon sulTorln? from dysen
tery nearly all tho summer, but returned
to Washington last week feeling much
belter. He was feeling unusually well
yesterday morning and walked part of
the wny on his road to the Capitol.
During the day ho appeared to lie In
very good health and spirits.
About 0 o'clock ho left the Capitol
for home, and, stopping tho car at
Thomas Circle, he started to walk to
his home, about 150 yards distant, when
ho fell across tho car track. He was Im
mediately assisted Into n cab by two
colored men standing near by and con
veyed to his residence, 1 115 Massachu
setts avenue, and carried Into his private
Mrs. Miller, who was visiting friends,
was notified, and upon her arrival tho
Judgo was removed to his bedroom. His
condition then did not papoar to bo seri

ily his trip from the Capitol to his home,
and laughed and joked with them, tell
ing them not to bu alarmed over his at
tack. Drs. Cook and Lincoln were called In,
and after an examination found tho left
side partially paralyzed from tho arm
down. About 10 o'clock, however,
alarming symptoms developed, nnd the
doctors were again called In. Sedatives
were administered, and the Justice ox-
CrcsK-d himself as vry comforta

the first attack.
Dining the evening thehouw wai be
sleeed with callers, among the first being
Justice Illatchford, who had Just arrived
from New York. Chief Justice Fuller
soon followed, nnd nearly all tho associ
ate Judges called.
Tbu Judge's strength has suffered

Hnd some time ago he underwent an
extremely trying surgical operation.

Mrs. Stocking Is now In Vienna, and
Mrs. Tonzalln is at her husband's

Late last night the Judge's condition
became very alarming, and his side was
found to be completely paralyzed. He
was attended throughout the night by
Drs. Lincoln and Cook, Professor Wil
son of the Smithsonian and Chief Clerk
McKenny of the Supreme Coutt.
This morning Dr. Cook reported
Justice Miller's condition as being very
critical, and that the family entertained
no hope whatever of hU recovery.
Chief Clerk McKenny. who had just
come from the Justice's bedside, was
seen this morning and expressed him
self as having given up all hope. The
Judge, he said, bail lost a great deal of
blood ami had fallen Into a comatose
state. lie was unable to recognise any
body and was slowly sinking. Ilia
wonderful vitality may sustain bun for a
few hours longer, but his death Is but a

TirrjMunr, Oct. 11. When the

counsel for the Crown, stated that
since yesterday's adjournment ot the
court It had been decided Ihst the
Crown would continue the prosecution
of the conspiracy cases, notwithstanding
tho absence of the defendants, Messrs.
Dillon and O'Brien. Mr. Honan con
tended that In the fact that the delin

cation for the recognition by the court
of the Crown's rUht to proceed.
Mr. Healy, counsel for the defend
ants, argued at length that the course
suggested by the Crown to lie pursued
wai unjustifiable and Impossible.

been unable, by reason of Illness, to at

BISHOP KEANE'S EULOGISTIC REMARKS,
The Centenary of the Great Apatite's
Birth Appropriately Celebrated by
Dis Digeiples in This City.
The centenary of the birth of Father
Malhcw, the great apostle of temper
ance, Mas appropriately observed last
night by the Father Matlicw Total Ab
stinence Society of St. Patrick's parish
at Carroll Institute Hall. The audience
was a large one, the addresses excellent
and the music by the Marine Hand In
spiring. When the Right Iter. Dlshop Keanc,
escorted by Fathers Walter, McOec,
Mackln, Hannan, Do AVolf (of Hyatts
vllle) nnd Itlordcn (of Datncsville) and
President Dougherty of the Father
Mathcw T. A. Society, entered the hall
and advanced to the stage the audience
arose and the orchestra played "Hall to
tho Chief." lllshop Kcanc was attired
In his sactcdotal robes nnd wore his
golden cross and chain.
Father Walter presided nnd made a
few opening remarks ending with the
hope tbat tho centennial celebration
would be productive of good.
Father Hannan of Havre dc Grace,
Mil., waa the first speaker. It was, ho
said, In that hall (then old St. Patrick's
Church) that lie first knelt at the feet
of Father Kcane and made his vows In
the cause nf religion and temperance.
Ho bad returned again to renew his
allegiance and to raise his voice In
favor of hlch license.
lllfhop Keanc, upon rising to deliver
his address, was wattnly greeted with
applause. "Wo come, he aald, "to
celebrate the birth of that great apostle
of timprrancc. Father Matuew, to em
u'ato lil' deeds and to carry on his
work. Father Mitbew had Incompar
ably more disciples than Carroll, and
mote followers than fought under the
banner of Washington. When Wash
ington retired from the Presidency the
United States had only 12,000.05o In
habitants. Throughout England. Scot
land and Ireland Father Muthew could
coui.t G.OOO.OOO of persons who had
cnlUtrd under his banner.
lllshop Keane, continuing, drew a
picture of the little sthool-house In Ire
land In which on April 10. lbOS. the
fltst Catholic Temperance League of
the world was organUed. From that
little school-house the cause of total
abstinence spread over 1'urope and the
Unltid States. It did not end with
Father Mathew'a death, but, like the
grain that Is covered by the snows of
winter. It now ripens In the springtime
that follows. "I am opposed, he con
tinued, "to the taking of lltjuor as a
stimulant. There is no use for aay
man to take an artificial stimulant, and
I have always set myself strongly
against such a habit. Drunkenness to
day Is looked uKin as a disgrace, and
the time may come when there will be
no more drunkenness, but until tbat
time does come we must strike the ae
to the roots of the tree aad tear up the
roots. Kvery rme should emulate the
example and carry ou the work of
HUbon Keane was followed bv Mr.
Miltou D. Smith, editor of the Cktrtk
A'aet of this city, who gave some sound,
practical arguments la favor of total
abstlneaee. Father McGee was the
last speaker aad was frequently ap
plauded throughout his remarks. He
said that be was la favor of high li
cense. After passing the following resolu
tions the meeting adjourned:

J the doctrine of total abstinence from
alcohol Ic k t rage. They were chiefly
Protestants, says Alexander M. SullI
van In "New Ireland," some of the
most active among them lelonglng to a
rt-llglous denomination the members of
which have lieen leaders In nearly every
social and moral icform and every
humane ami philanthropic effort In
Ireland the Society of Friends.
Tolling laboriously amidst the npialor
and poverlv of the pooorst quarter of
Cotk city, the yount" Capuchin was at
this time laying the foundation for
that imrveiom personal lnrluenop
which afterwards formed so great a
part of bis power. He was not content
wllh discharging Ihe ordinary duties of
his sacred calling, although these were
In themselves severe and trying. He
pushed entirely outside the sttlctly
spiritual sphere. He set up schools
Infant and adult, Sunday and week
day: rented a loft here and a third
tloor there, wherein lie established in
dustrial teaching: the girls beinir taught
various knitting and needle work occu
pations, the boys such trades as seemed
most suitable. Then there was not a
dispensary or an hospital, not an alms
society or room-keepers' aid fund, In
Cork, that he was not In the thick of
the work, pushing on every eood en
deavour, and constantly devising some
new experiment in the same direction.
Pcfore long the name of the young
friar was a household word: his untir
ing activity, his noble unselfishness,
his ardent anxiety for upraising the
moral and social condition of the
wretched masses, were the theme of
every tongue. It is aald that of the
population of Ireland, which was then
seven millions, five millions took the
pledge from Father Mathcw, nnd his
success was equally wonderful In other
lands. On the 8lh of December, 1S.10,
after a life of usefulness nnd honor, he
died In tbe city of Cork.
IttS VISIT TO WAMttN'OTOX.
The story of Father Mathew's visit
to Washington Is an exceedingly Inter
esting one. Seldom, If ever, has a man
received such honors from the bands of
Congress as did Father Mathow, and,
too, It Is doubtful if nny other man ever
unintentionally created such a commo
tion lu political circles nt the Capital in
so brief n visit as he did. The fame of
the great temperance orator had reached
America years before he landed In Now
York on tho morning of duly 3, 1810, so
that when It was known that he was on
our shores Invitations poured inupin
blm from all tbe largo cities In the
Union. The great meeting In Irving
Hall. New York, was one of the most
notid In the city's history. D.illy levees
In tbe City Hall were the programme
for a week. While there, Hon. Millard
Fillmore. Vice President of the United
States, and Hon. Lewis Cass called
tiron him and Invited him to visit
Washington. About ibis time William
Llojd Garrison extended him an Invita
tion to visit llotton as the guest of the
Massachusetts AnllShvery Society,
and Father Mathew unwittingly com
piled with the request. This afterward
caused much embarrassment to Father
Mathew, as will be seen later on.
In Iloston be addressed very large au
diences on temperance, and refuted to
be dragced by Mr. Garrison Into discus
sing the slavery question. Philadelphia
paid blm equal honors, and on Decem
ber lit he arrived In Washington. As
soon as his coming was made known to
Congress a resolution was unanimously
carried In the House admitting blm to a
THE 1U0KK.T DISTINCTION
that could be conferred upon the sub
ject of another country by the Uepre
sentatlves of our republic. The follow
loe day, when Father Mathew entered
tbe Hall, the members rose to receive
him, and an Informal reception was
held during the noon recess. In tbe
meantime a resolution had lieen offered
In tbe Senate extending him the courte
sies of that body, which gave rise to a
most animated debate. Senator Walker
of Wisconsin had moved "that the Itev.
Theobald Slathew be allowed a seat
within tbe bar of the United States Sea
ate during the period of his sojourn la
Mr. Clements was the first to oppose
the passage of the resolution, and said:
"The reason, which prompts me to
make objection Is that I have been In
formed that tbe individual named la
tbe resolution has been charged with
denouncing a portion of this Confeder
acy with the fnalnieaa&ce of aa Insti
tution which he Is pleased to character
ize as a sia and a erlsae, aad whea re
spectfully invited by the Governor of
Georgia to express his views la relation,
IKSTITITIOK Of SIAVEBY,
be refused to answer. Under these
eircuinsiaaees I do sot think I could
const lealkMisly suffer such a resolution
