lan Jlilhcock, secretary of the interior
under Presidents tMc.Kinlcy and.Rooso
ve.ll, died here this morning at 11
o'clock, aged 74. He had been criti
cally ill for suvornl days.
Somo weeks ago he contracted a se
vere cold while in the west, aud his
condition became so serious that, he
hurried to Washington to place himself
in the hands of specialists, who had
attended him during his official career
here, lie suffered from a complication
of kidney, heart and pulmonary dis
eases. With him at the home of his sou-in-.
law, Lieutenant Commander Sims of
the navy, tho former naval aide of the
president, were his children, Mrs. Sims
and Mrs. Shcpley and Miss Margaret
Hitchcock. His condition .had' been

Tho body will be taken to St. Louis
tomorrow, arriving there Sunday night.
The iunoral will bo held Monday, tho
interment being at the Belief outaino
cemetery in that citj-.
His passing marked the Hose of a
career whose pro-eminent feature was
an administration of tbo interior depart
ment that stirred tho western lanu prou
lems as never before.
Brought here from St. Petersburg,
where he had served as embassador un
der an appointment of Presmont Mc
Kinlcv, Mr. Hitchcock was almost im
mediately plunged into a vortex ot com
plications growing out ot vast frauds
and charges of fraud anil counter
cha'cs growing out of tho acquirement
of publio hinds in tho western states.
Mr. Hitchcock directed the most
sweeping investigations, arousing tho
cnniitv of powerful political interests.
That ;work is recalled today as ono of
the most unswerving and -rplcntleas in
quisitions in the annals of government
Had Stirring Career.
He prosecuted cases agaiust numer

who was convicted and died not long
afterwards. Former Congressman Bul
