Ex-Secretary of State. Frederick T. F.
linghuysen, died at Newark, N.J. at 5:30
Wednesday evening. He was born at Mill
town August 4, 1817. He was 44 years old
wben be was appointed to his first political
office, that ot attorney general of New Jersey.
He was reappointed when his term expired,
but tbe same year (I860) the Governor
named bim to fill a vacancy in the United
States Senate. He was re-elected for the full
term. It it notable that all bit political
offices were those filled bv appointment rather
than election. From the time be was made
attorney general, in 1801, Mr. Frelingbuy
sen's political career was almost continuous.
It migbt have been entirely to except for a
curious teaton. He was nominated by Pres
ident Grant at Mlni.ter to England and con-
firmed by the Senate. He had, however.
a belief, superstition, or whatever It
was, that II he ever took an ocean
voyage be would lose his life on tbe way.
Therefore be declined the honor. The most
intellectual men have their whims and Ian-
cles. Mr. Fielinghuvsen remained In nrlat
life from the time be lelt tbe Senate, In 1877,
till 1881. Then Piesident Arthur appointed

Tenth Avenue, was arrested wlillo on bto

Tho policeman was attracted by Francis'

but the officer insisted upon being Informed
as to tho conte nU of the sack, and took
Francis into custody.
The policeman then seized Francis by the
rm, whereupon he dropped the bag and Its
contents upon the sldewnlk. It fell with a
"swashing" sound to tho lings, and the offi
cer, upon opening the sack, found to his
surprise and horror that it contained the
mutilated corpse ot a woman. The body
was doubled up In an almost nude condition.
The policeman, upon making a closer exam
ination, found unmistakable evidence of the
Jjact that the woman had been murdered.
There were ghastly woundi about tho head,

The Coroner hut evening made a post

Francis. Four scalp wounds were found
and a fracture of the trachea, but death had
resulted from strangulation. Francis was
committed to tho Tombs pending tho ver

Francis Is about thirty-seven years ot

affair when closely questioned, other than
to repeat the story that his wife had died at
their house on Tenth Avenue, and that he
was simply depositing the corpse in the
river on account of his inability to give it
Christian burial. B
