Buffering so intensely, administered opi
ates which, toward morning, induced a
state of semi-consciousness, in which he
remained until the end. Occasionally ha
would partially revive and recognize the
loved ones near him by a glance or a
pressure of the hand, but a relapse soon
followed. For a number of hours previous
to death he was practically unconscious.
In his last hours the dying Justice was
surrounded by members of his family
who have been with him throughout his
illness. Mrs. Matthews, his daugh
ters. Miss Matthews and Miss Eva
Matthews, and his son,. Paul
Matthews, and Mr. O. B. Matthews, his
"brother, of Cincinnati, who came to Wash
ington a week or ten days ago. Dr. John
ston and the faithful colored servant, who
only a few days ago announced to callers
with great satisfaction that "Justice Mat
thews is ever so much better" were also
present. The tightly drawn blinds along
the avenue front of the residence this
morning afforded the first indication to
neighbors and passers-by that all was not
well within. The reports of Justice Mat
thews' condition during the past week had
been of such a cheering nature that ap
prehension was in a great measure sub
dued, and the news of his death came
with a shock even to many who had been
prepared for the announcement at any
time during the winter.
The Justice was ever a cheerful and
hopeful patient and naturally the mem
bers of his family endeavored to be as
cheerful and hopeful as he, and it was
owing to his own belief that the favor
able reports of the past week were given
to those who inquired after his health.
Only yesterday morning Justice Mat
thews was discussing with his family
various plans for the future, when he
should be able, as in the past, to take
part in their execution. "But at no time
since his return to Washington," said one
of the familv this morning, "have we
really felt that there was hope of his recovery."
Justice Matthews had been an invalid
for a year or more. During the winter of
1SS7 and 1888 he frequently complained of
indigestion and muscular rheumatism,
and as the spring wore he began to suffer
from obstinate diarrhoea, from which he
lost a great deal of strength and flesh.
At this time it was thought that his great
dervotion to work, was, to a large degree,
responsible for his illness, as no doubt
it was, and acting upon the advice of his
physician and friends, who had great
hopes that a change might prove a last
ing benefit, he went to Massachusetts,
stopping for some time at Lennox, and
then at Nantucket, but he continued
to lose ground. During the sum
mer he had several attacks
of muscular rheumatism, associated
with high fever, which would confine him
to his bed for several days at a time. On
his return home he began to improve
somewhat, but he continued to suffer from
the intercurrent attacks, which always
greatly reduced his strength and flesh.
These came on at intervals of three or
four weeks. Between them he would have
periods of marked improvement, and sev
eral times when Dr. Johnston was confi
dently hoping to be able to get him out.
another attack would prostrate mm ana
make him weaker than ever. During last
February he suffered greatly with a com
plication of cystitis and iritis. About
this time an ulcer of the cornea appeared,
with an effusion into the pleural cavity,
which were attributable to his rheumatic
condition. He recovered, however, from
both of these latter complications. Yester
dav afternoon he had a prolonged chill
Tfnd high fever which brought on intense
. . 1.11 J
local suffering. This was ronoweu m a
few hours by another chill from which he
could not rally. He continued to lose
strength and died a few minutes after
ten o'clock thi3 morning. The immedi
ate cause of death was exhaustion or the
heart and congestion of the kidneys, with
partial suppression of the urine.
Beside his regular attendant. Dr. Will
iam W. Johnston, other eminent physi
cions, including Dr. Win. Pepper, of
Philadelphia, and Dr. S. N. Lincoln, of
Washington, were called in consultation
from time to time.
Justice Matthews was born in Cincinnati,
July 21, 18i4. He graduated at Kenyon
College iu 1810, studied law and was admitted
to the bar, settling in Maury County, Tenn.
Ho shortly afterward returned to Cincinnati.
In 1816 he became editor of the Cincinnati Her
ald, the first daily anti-slavery paper In that
city. He became Judge of the Court of Com
mon Pleas In Hamilton County in 1851, was
State Senator in 18T5, and in 1856-61 was United
States Attorney for the Southern district of
Ohio. He served with distinction In the
Union army daring the war, but
resigned his commission as Colonel
in 1S63 to become Judge of th
Superior Court of Cincinnati. He was a presi
dential elector on the Lincoln-Johnson ticket
In 14, and on the Grant-Colfax ticket In 1808.
He was dereated as Republican candidate fpr
Congress in 1876, and in the next year was one
of the counsel hefore the celebrated Electoral
Commission, opening the argument in behalf of
me Republican electors of Florida and making
the princ ipal argument in the Oregon case. Ia
March. 1877. he was electea uniieu owikjs

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL.
Chancet tn the Popular Demand for Cer.
tain tVoods or Designs.
"Styles come and go in furniture al
most as rapidly as in millinery," said
a leading: manufacturer, in reference to
the trend of taste in houso-furnishinjr.
"Every little while there ia a popular
craze for some particular wood or
design, and even though there be no
pronounced demand of this sort there
is always a reaching; out after novelties.
Thus every manufacturer is obliged to
get out new designs periodically to
liold custom. All wo can do is to make
suggestions; it is the public that passes
judgment and creates style. As a rule
the more unique tho designs are the
better they take, but ia the best line
of goods I think taste is taking a de
cided turn to the better.
"In the new styles of furniture the
designs are simpler and the ornamen
tation less elaborate and more chaste.
The same principles are now followed
in cabinet-making as in architecture
Barriag special cases, which may be
regarded as exceptions, there is a
growing disuse of 'Ornamentation, pure

F simple, ew3n severe, lines and fine fin
ish- I some styles, especially of ta
bles and bed-room sets, this is almost
carried to excess. The aim, of course,
is to produce striking effects without
such an expenditure of labor in manu
facture as to prohibit sale, and in so
far as designers now sin in this respect
i I think they sin on the right side.
f "Taste is now gravitating toward
the antique. With the exception of a
few patent devices, such as folding
beds, office furniture and revolving
book-cases, nothing really now has
been got out for years. The Eastlake
patterns, so popular some time ago,
were nothing but a crude adaptation
of thefjothio. Painted furniture, once
so popular, was novel only in its finish.
So, too, with stained woods, which are
used only for cheap goods. All- these
are now out of date, and designers are
busy working over Romanesque, re
naissance, Louis IV., and colonial pat
terns. We adapt and unite the differ
ent types just as modern architects
combine different styles of architecture,
and asAny of our most pleasing effects
ar obtained in this way. The potpular
fa keeps us within the leading strings
of the antique, and so far as the . re
quirement is saet we are free to make
as many violations or combinations of
art principles as we choose.
"Lack of ornamentation in no wise
meanB cheapness of make. Carving is
a cover for defective wood and often
careless workmanship, but in the
smooth, natural finish of woods the ma
terial must be perfect and tho work
manship faultless. Natural finish, do
signed to bring out the beauty of the
material, is now the rage, and it is
doubtless a step in the right direction
"In the matterjof- woods, oak has
precedence. Cherry probably follows
next. Birch and curly maple are much
used, since they give a pleasing, dainty
effect. Walnut, which for some time
has been out of favor, is gradually
coming back again. Oak and cherry
aro now what walnut used to be the
staple goods and I presume it will
not bo long before they, too, will yield
to the popular fancy and take tho ob
Bcure corners of retail establishments.
"Good furniture to-day is much
cheaper than the same quality of goods
was a few years ago. The secret of the
matter is not because wood or labor is
cheaper, for material is actually more
expensive and labor not essentially
changed, but because machine-woric is
more largely taking the place of hand
work, even in tho best goods, and
because, as I said before, beauty is
sought on different lines. A large
share of the carved work now seen on
furniture is done quickly and cheaply
by machines which are little less than
curiosity in the way they work out
designs. There aro some classes 01
furniture, of course, such as uphol
stered chairs and sofas, in which there
Is not so noticeable a change either in
