New Yoek, December 25. The "Weather
Bureau says that of all the Christmas days
it had come across, to-day was 'the rarest.
Everybody accepts the "Weather Bureau
.statement as good law. The day was excep
tional, in that after several hours 'of real
tropical winter weather,, it did not end in a
bluster or stnrm. It was all on account of
the high pressure in the Southern States,
and a storm passing over the lake region.
It won't last long' here, Sergeant
Dunu, of the "Weather Bureau, says,
for there will be rain in this sec
tion to-morrow, followed by colder weather.
The heat will hang on throughout to-nior-rofr
over Pittsburg and the Ohio Valley,
The thermometer will drop 20 to 30 degrees
to-morrow, in the lake re&ons.
There was a scurry f snow In Canada,
this morning. It was freezing cold in
Southern Michigan, and the cold is likely
to hang on there to-morrow. The recorded
temperature here to-day is 62. Christmas a

years, yet it was only 53. la Cairo, Ilk,

rsracTAi, telxosau to tux DisrATCn.1
New Yoek, December 25. Henry Clews,
the banker, proposes to enter the new year
with a cheerful belief in the possibilities of
1890. Speaking of the "Wall street situa
tion, he said to-day: "Taken as a whole
the situation is 'very generally felt to be a
hopeful one: The general trade of the
country is.in a more than ordinarily healthy
condition. There is, it is true, some little
complaint of backwardness" in "Western
payments, which seems to be caused
by the mild weather checking the con
sumption of certain classes of products;
and this has induced free sbipments'of cur
rency to the interior this week. But these
are o'nly transient drawbacks to a very satis
factory condition of business the country
over. The railroads participate in this
benefit, for, with all their rolling stock em
ployed, there is the less inducement to cut
rates, and their net earnings should there
fore be good. The increase of dividends by
the Yanderbilt lines between New York and
Chicago has produced a marked impression
on the estimate of railroad shares, for those
being representative stocks, it is therefore
argued that other dividend payers ought to
show a like improvement
"The 'trust' craze is subsiding, the build
ing of new railroads has almost ceased, the
excitement over Southern .developments, has
settled into a careful investment movement
in the hands of sober men of capital, and
prices of both commodities and securities
are ranging around a level that scarcely
admits of any important reaction, but rather
invites buying upon reasonable prospects of

AtlaktA,- December 25. To-night the
mortal remains of Henry "W. Grady repose
in Oakland'. Cemetery. So sudden" is the
change from Jife to death thai the" story
reads like a tragedy. In the flush of con
scious victory 'and power he stood before
that distinguished Boston audience. The
death-damp' seised him before his return
home, and ihe pecan which was to have
greeted him has become a dirge instead.
Prom the residence the body was taken at
10 o'clock this morning and placed in state
in the First Methodist Church until 2;
There was a constant procession of people
anxious to see his face. The
church services, conducted by Dr. H.
C. Morrison, consisted of the reading of
psalms, prayers by the clergy, and the sing
ing of several hymns. To the cemetery the
hearse passed, followed by a mile of people,
passing through immense crowds which
opened up all the way. Thus passed the
first Christmas day which Henry Grady did
not enjoy in the flesh.

Before 9'o'clocK this morning those who
had been Mr. Grady's nearest friends began
collecting at his house. As each niw arrival
entered the hall a warm hand-clasp was ex

words were spoken. The folding doors. lead
ing, into the drawing room were tightly
closed, and when ladies arrived they were.
shown into the sitting room on tne right en
trance. The frasrrant blossoms banked hieh. one
above the other. The floral tribute formed
a fragrant' mass of bloom, and in the center
of all rested the casket with its mass of
sacred, contents. The head of the casket
was toward Peach street, and 'immediately

them clear and. distinct.
For half aa hour the friends were per
mitted to pass by the casket and look upon
that dear face. As. soon as it was over, the
guard of honor, led by Mayor Glenn and
Dr. H. O. Morrison, left thehouse. After the
coffin was placed in the hearse the pall
bearers formed on each side, and with meas

On reaching the church door the guard of
honor was met by Governor John B. Gor

time for the funeral, and reached the city
only in time to" meet the coffin' as it entered
the church. He took his place on the nghf
of the door, aud the g'uard of honor
and Hha 'Coeamisoiondrs- formed a double
tow, through" which' the h-eamewr4rlvea
were called on to perform (heir duties, and
as they bore the coffin into the church every
head was uncovered.
"When the side doors cf the church were
thrown open, not less than 5,000 people were
standing Jn line oh Peach street. Por some
distance above and below the door

An old negro woman stopped for an in
stant, the tears streaming down her face,
then, taking a pair of plain spectacles from
her pocket, she put them on and bent
over the casket. There was a halt in
the procession, but nobody thought of
saying "move on" to her. She seemed
to have forgotten .all else in her grief; and
stood sobbing, while those following h'er
waited patiently and with tears in tbeir
own eyes. Not five minutes afterward a lit

a look at the face in the casket. He was
about to pass on disappointed, when a

half-frightened, half-grateful look, and
passed out with ihe crowd. Pew comments
