held a foremost poition at the Wash
ington bar was a sreat shock to his wide
circle of friends and acquaintances Since
his return from a trip to Europe about
six weeks ago he had leen in excellent
health for a man of his years He fre
quently expressed himself as feeling well
and it was a fact commented upon by
those mho saw him and knew him inti
mately that he was looking much better
than ho had appeared beforo for a con
siderable time
The death of his wife one year ago last
June greatly depressed him and follow
ing that eent his health began to fall
He suffers somewhat from kidney trou
ble but it was not considered to be of a
serious character Early In the season
he decided upon a trip to Europo for tho
purpose of recreation and to recuperate
his health He traveled alone and was
absent for several months Tho rest ap
peared to have done him a great deal of
good
When ho returned to New York he had
a conference with his old friend Rear
Admiral Schley and at his request de
cided to take up his case as chief counsel
before the Court of Enquiry which Secre
tary Long had just ordered upon the ap
plication of the admit al He went to his
summer hme at Oakland Md for a
short time and upon returning to Wash
ington about a month ago he Immedi
ately took up the Schfey case and to it
ho devoted almost his entire attention
He mastered every phase of the con
troversy and took a deep personal inter
est in the case by reason of his long
and pleasant associations with Admiral
Schely He went about the work so
calmly and deliberately however that it
did not overtax him When the Court
opepfd he felt fully equal to the labori
ous task He attended the session on
Jlondoy of this week and took an ac
tive part in the proceedings making a
brief argument upon a point which was
brought up just before the adjournment
for the day
During the evening ho was 1n consul
tation with his associates air Itayner
Captain Parker and Mr Teague upon
certain parts of the evidence adduced
during tile day and making plans for tho
conduct of the case yesterday They re
mained with him until after 10 oclock
last night He was then feeling well
but complained it being somewhat fa
tigued
Upon returning to Washington a month
ago Judge Wilson took apartments at
the Shoreham awaiting the return of his
daughter from Oakland where she was
spending the summer lie retired at the
hotel at his usual hour At about 2
oclock yesterday morning ho was taken
111 with what he believed to be a severe
attack of indigestion He had felt it
slightly during the night before but had
given it little or no attention thinking
that it would gradually wear away
His condition became so bad that he
was ioliged to summon medical aid His
physician Dr Gardner is absent In Eu
rope and he therefore called Dr II F
Bishop who responded and remained
with Judge Wilson until 5 oclock In the
morning Judge Wilson was then feel
ing somewhat better and ha thought
that he would be able to resume his w ork
as usuaL
He arose at his accustomed hour and
Dr Bishop called again shortly after 8
oclock Judge Wilson ate a light break
fast and then held another consultation
with Mr Itaner and Admiral Schley
who called to talk over the plans for the
hearing yesterday They remained with
him until about 10 oclock when they left
to go to the navy yard where the sittings
of the Court are held Judge Wilson was
expecting to havo a meeting with the di
rectors of the Chesapeake and Potomac
Telephone Company of which he was
i president and then anticipated following
Admiral Schley and Mr Itayner to the
navy yard He was still feeling some
what Indisposed and complained of a
numbness in his left arm but he thought
that he would be able to assist in con
ducting the case without difficulty
Shortly after the departure of Admiral
Schley and Mr Itayner he was taken se-
rlously ill and sent a tek phone message j
to his son Charles S Wilson whose otlice
Is in the Kellogg Building asking him to j
come at once to his apartments Mr
Wilson found his fathel in an alarming
state and rapidly losing consciousness j
Dr Bishop who had be n summoned In
the meantime had nrrivcil at Judge Wil

rlous condition of the patient sent for

shock to us and wo are unable to pro
ceed further with the case today We
would therefore ask the Court as a fa
or to us and out of respect to the mem
ory of Judge Wilson that an adjournment
be taken today
Admiral Dewey the President of the
Court at once declared the Court ad
journed for the day Mr Rayner said
that he would like to have the Court ad
journ also on the day of tho funeral and
that will be arranged later
Admiral Schley Mr Rayner Mr Par
ker and Mr Teague left the Navy Yard
immediately upon tho adjournment of the
Court and proceeded to tho Shoreham
wnere tney arriveu at aoout noon ah or
them were shocked by the news Admiral
Schley was visibly affected and said that
wnen no ten Juuge wuson nc nau Be
lieved him to be a very tick man but
had not expected such a sudden end nor
had he thought that his condition was one
that wcuid cause death
After thise few moments conversation
the party went immediately to the rooms
occupied by Judge Wilson where they
expressed their grief to the relatives The
remains were removed jetterday after
noon to the family residence 1712 I Street
juuge vwison was a memuer or me
Metropolitan Club and also of the Ma
sonic order He was a man greatly be
Icvd by all who knew him and his ac
quaintance and his reputation as a law
yer extended to all parts of the coun
try He was one of the most successful
practitioners at the Washington bar and
there have ben but few cases In the lo
cal courtF attracting wide attention
within the past twenty years with which
he has not been associated
He was always courteous and affable
In his manni rs and never became dis
turbed or excited in any situation He
was a clear and ready thinker and rea
soner a strong pleader and always made
a deep impression upon both judge and
jun He was a man of high moral char
acter and great Intellectual force qual
ities displajed In the conduct of every
work which he undertook
Many messages of condolence were re
ceived by the grief stricken family last
night Expressions of sympathy and es
teem for Judge Wilson were heard on
every hand yesterday
Hr Rayner was deeply affected by tho
sudden death of his colleague Judge Wil
son He could simply repeat one exclama
tion after another deploring Judge Wil
sons passing away As ho paced back
and forth It was evident that his nerves
were completely unstrung
Oh Its terrible terrible he said
Why onlv a few hours ago I was here
talking to him I cant believe it possible
Its dreadful I shall go directly back to
Baltimore to get away from the awful
force of this blow but will return tomor
row morning
Just four days ago Judge Wilson told
me he could not moe his left wrist and
arm with customary ease and said he
feared he was coiner to he ill Rut his
buoyant spirits soon drove away all fore
bodings as he plunged again into the work
of the Enqury
in me snort time 1 had known him i
had learned to love him personally and to
admire him for his great legal ability I
shall miss him more than 1 can tell
Captain Lemlv Judge Advocate of the
Schley Court said 1 have known Judge
Wilson ever since t was a boy and our
relations have always been very pleas
ant I was engaged in one very import
ant case that of the hearing against Sur
geon General Wale3 In 1SS5 In which he
was the opposing counsel and I have
been associated with him frequently in
business matters coming before the de
partment He was courteous and I great
ly admired his ability He always poured
oli on the troubled waters I am deeply
grieved at the news of his death
Mr Hanna Solicitor for the Navv De
partment said I have known Judge
Wilson for many years and as an honored
membr of his profession He was a tow
er of strength to anv cause to which he
brought his exprience and master mind
He was a sagacious counsellor careful
considerate and cuurtcous always I ad
mired him greatly
juage u c cole said i was very
greatly shocked this morning to hear of
the sudden death of Judge Jeremiah M
Wilson I have known him Intimately
for many jears He was a man of ex
ceptionally high character and a Iawver
of unusvnl ability His death Is a severe
loss to n not or friends and to the Wash
ington bar
Henry E Davis said In the death of
Judge Wilson the Washington bar has
lost the man who in many particulars
was nll its most distinguished member
It is quite safe to uy that no member
of our bar was better known throughout
the eountry or esteemed admired and
even loved more truly Apart from his
legal attainments and consequent high
standing as a lawyer he was of most
eourteous and gentle disposition and I
remember with much pleasure his enjoy
ment of the name 1 gave him some years
ago the universal solvent for no mat
ter how acrimonious a situation among
his fellow lawyers might be if ho had
anything to do with the case out of
which the situation grew he would com
pose it almost as if by magic
As is well known his career was most
brilliant and useful For ten ears he was
a judge In Indiana and many stories are
told of his promptness clearness and
fairness in disponing of business before
him For many years ho warf a Repre
sentative In Congress from Indiana anil
what may not be so generally known he
was the real author of the existing form
of government of the District of Colum
bia having as a member of the commit
tee charged with the investigation of Dis
trict affairs formulated the plan and
drafted tho bill which went Into opera
tion for the lemiwrary government by
commissioners afterward made perma
nent As a public man he was of great
uefulnBS and most tolerant to all
whether of his own political faith or not
During tho quarter of a century that he
was a member of our bar he was en
gaged in mtiny of the most Important and
widely known cases and Ills success was
little short of phenomenal and while a
sound and studious lawyer he was promi
nently successful In his treatment of
Juries and witnesses TAken all In all a
most leanud and lovable man has been
lost to us by his death nnd I know of
no one who was more sincerely regarded
by his fellows or will more genuinely
missed from our ranks
Chief Justice Bingham of tho Supreme
Coutt of the District said The innnunc
ment of the death of Judge Wilson Is sad
news to the members of the local bar I
knew him for many years and recognized
htm as a man of great ability Only to

SOCIAL AND PERSONAL
Mrs Roosevelt is expected to arrive nt
the Whit House today The resident
portion of the mansion has been put in
readiness for her coming carpets are
down and tho jiersonal belongings of the
Presidents family set In their proper
place so that the new house which she Is
to so unexpectedly take possession of will
seem very like home According to a pen
picture recently published in New York
where Mrs Roosevelt is so well Known
and liked she is described as rather pe
tite with brown hair and eyes a clear
skin that colors prettily when excited
nnd a beautiful and expressive mouth
She dresses simply especially In the
street wears no Jewels except with
evening dress which is always extremely
handsome She has not varied for years
the style o her halrdresslng The hair is
parted smoothed simply back from the
forehead and colled at the back of the
head with some few natural ringlets
around the temples but there is no at
tempt made to follow each move Of fash
ion Mrs Roosevelt has understood her
own style and dresses accordingly The
athletic sports of the day do not appeal
to her but she is a good horsewoman and
has taken up riding again within the last
two or three years She is an expert
needlewoman writes cleverly and there
is somewhere extant a book of verse
whlch shtf has published for private cir
culation She is a member of several
luncheon clubs but she has never taken
part in fashionable entertainments and
her name appears very rarely on the list
of patronesses for large festivities
She possesses that rare talent which
made Mrs Cleveland so popular of re
membering the faces of people she meets
once or twice and also being able to re
member all about them She is the boon
companion as well as the very wise and
tender mother of her stepdaughter and
her own children who are much younger
than Mis3 Alice Roosevelt
She has a wide knowledge of politics
both foreign and American She is a
frail looking woman ut has much more
strength than she apparently possesses
She is deeply religious

and much time was devoted to a discus
