Ilia Death la Regarded by tbe
People or Roanoke.
By Associated Press.
Boston, December 24.?The follow?
ing" letter sent yesterday expresses
the sentiment of the Boston Mer?
chant's association concerning Hon.
Henry W. Grady's death :
The Constitution Publishing Com?
pany, Atlanta. Ga., at a meeting of
the directors of the Merchants'associ?
ation held at their rooms to take ac?
tion upon the death of Henry W.
Grady, of Atlanta, Ga., which oc?
curred so soon after his visit to Bos?
ton, it was voted that we are grieved
beyond expression at the sudden
death of our distinguished guest and
friend; that we are not ablo to recall
any social relation with eminent
strangers who have come to our an?
nual banquet,which has been moreen
joyable or more profitable than the one
which has been so suddenly aud so
sadly ended. Mr. Grady's bright, Bin
cere and hearty manner, his sympa?
thy, interest and appreciation of ev?
erything that was done for him and
his friends; his manifest sincerity in
bis views, joined with earm st desire
to know just what we felt and be?
lieved, and to find,if possible,common
ground of devotion and loyalty to
our country and right,bad so endeared
hi in to those who came in contact with
him, and all who heard his eloquent
words,that Iiis death in the midst ofa
career of so great promise and influ?
ence, we must regard as a public ca?
lamity, in which Atlanta and Horton,
Georgia and Massachusetts equally
suffer. That in this event we recog?
nize an All-Wise Providence, who can
save to our country all that is most
valuable in the lives of its most in
That remembering the last words of
our friend as he left us, we shall abide
in belief that this dwep-felt prediction
of great good in attainment of ends
that all good men are aiming for our
re united country, will be sooner real?
ized from the visit to Boston ami
Plymouth of this distinguished citizen
and his friends.
In conclusion we tender to the fain
ily of Mr ^rady, and to his friends so
recently here, thesympathy for whim
we have no adequate words. Jona

Atlanta, Ga., Dec 24.?Mr. Grady's
message to his mother, in a conscious
moment Sunday, was characteristic
"If I die,'' said he, "I die serving the
South, the laud I love so well. Father
fell in buttle for it. I am proud to die
sketch of mr. ?rady.
Henry Woodfen Grady was born in
Athens, Ga., May 17, 1851, and was
educated at the university of Georgia
and at the university of Virginia. At
the last-named plao he was a college
mate of John W. Daniel, now United
States Senator from Virginia, and of
Johm Wise. His father was a wealthy
business man of Athens, who,
while gallantly leading the Twenty
fifth North Carolina regiment at Pe?
tersburg, was shot seven times and
died from his wounds.
At the age of 20 ?ir. Grady Tas ed?
itor of a daily paper, the Commercial,
published at Rome, Ga. The paper
was ahead of the town, and he left it
to embark in the Herald, which has
gone into history as the liveliest pa?
per ever printed in Atlanta, No pa?
per has ever approached its dazzling
brilliancy. Mr. Grady's partners in
the enterprise were Alexander St
Clair Ab rams and Colonel Robert A.
Alston, who in 1879 was killed by
Captain Cox in thecapitol at Atlanta.
One of their wild schemes was paying
$150 a day for several months for a
special mail-train to deliver their
"I was young, and we did many
foolish things," said Mr Grady- "It
was reckless inexperience that made
the Herald so lively."
The good die young, so the Herald
went the way of all the earth, and
one day in 1876 tbe brilliant young
journalist sat down and figured up
hie possessions as follows: One wife.
Two children. Eleven dollars.
Very soon after calamity overtook
the Herald, Mr. Grady walked into
the New York Herald office, and by
chance got into the room of Mr.
Thomas B. Connery, the managing
editor Mr. Grady did not know a
soul in New York, and the managing
editor of the Herald was very much
amused when the young Southerner
applied for work. The Bristow boom
was on, and Mr. Grady showed vir.
Connery why Bristow could not carry
"I'm Just going out to lunch," said
Mr. Connery. *~Sit down here and
writs the Herald a letter on the Bris?
When Mr. Connery returned from
lunoh the letter was ready, and in the
morning appeared in the New York
Herald. Mr. Grady was in the Herald
office by 8 o'clock, seven hours ahead
of the managing editor, but waited
patiently and was engaged by tbe
Herald. He went South, and did a
great deal of work *c T the paper. For
his first year's work on the Herald
and other papers Mr. Grady received
nearly $6,000, which was the first
money he had earned exeept in con?
ducting his own business.
In 1880 ho bought a fourth interest
in the Atlanta Constitution, paying
$80 a share for the stock, which today
cannot be bought for $500 a share.
Since he bought an interest in the
Constitution unbroken success has
come to him. He lived in a handsome
SirWT, iOT Urwv rupLioiiU
ble avenue of Atlanta, with a charm
ing wife and two children, a bright
boy of 15 years, and a pretty little
daughter of 11. His mother .aid sis?
ter wen* also members of his house?
hold. His library was his living room,
and there, surrounded by his ever
happy family, he did much of his best
work. A portier divides the library
from a Binall study, containing a desk
and the telephone which connected
with the editorial rooms of the con?
stitution, enabling him to direct
matters at the office until midnight.
Mr. Glrady's personal appearance
was rather striking. His face was
smooth-shaven, dark skinned and ex?
pressive, with hair and eyes jet black.
His voice was low keyed, hut penetra?
ting- lb' was a man of marvelous
personal megnetism. He trampled
any am! all conventionalities under
loot and triumphed by the eccentrici?
ties of his genius.
Nkw Vokk. Dec. 21.?ChaunceyDe
pew, in hi.-- speech before the New
England club yesterday, said of Mr.
"Tin telegraph brings us this even?
ing the announcement of the death of
Henry W. Grady. We rorget all dif?
ferences of opinion and remember
onlv his chivalry, patriotism and
genius. He was the leader of the new
South, and died in i he great work of
impressing it* marvelous growth and
national inspirations upon the willing
ears of the North Upon this plat
form and before this audience two
years airo ho commanded tin; atten

the meridian ot his [lowers and the
hopefulness of his mission, at the ci it
ieal period ot the removal forever of
all luisunderstandiugs and different s
between all sections of the republic is
a national calamity, New York
mingles her tears with those ot his
kindred, an i oilers to his memory the

made a reputation that will live after

Sajt Andres, Cal., December 34.
A disastrous cave-iu occurred Sunday
evening in Lane mine, owned by
Howard &r Iiobart, located on the
west adge of the Angels, by which six?
teen men were buried. They were
supposed to be dead. Nineteen men
were sent into a drift on a 400-foot
level to repair the timbering which
had become loosened. They had not
worked over an hour when the sup?
ports of the upper timbers suddenly
swerved to the right and the roofing,
earth aud rocks fell, burying sixteen
men underneath the debris. Thomas
Corwin and two Italians managed to
escape, although Corwin was badly
injured. Corwin said that the par?
titions were leaning badly when he
went into the drift, but no one sus?
pected that there was any danger of a
cave-in. When it came thev were all
unprepared. He and the two Italians
escaped as soon as they h-ard the
timbers crack. The others also
started to reach a. place of safety.
Immediately after the accident men
wt-re lei down theshaft and on enter?
ing the mouth of the drift, com?
menced digging in the debris They
found their attempt almost useless,
as tbe timbers seemed to have been
woven together as though the sides
of the drift bad fallen ' to wards ?ach
other and had been covered by the
roofing. By last evening the rescuing
party had succeeded in getting 8 feet
into the pile of earth and the timber
ami none of the victims had been
reached. There is no pro-pect of
getting the men out alive.
