Washington Citv, Oct. H Associate
Justice Samuel F. Miller died at 10:52
last night. The tenacity of life displayed
by Justice Miller was truly marvelous.
He had been practically a dead man ever
since last Saturday. For nearly sixty
hours he received no nourishment what
ever, and did not speak or open bis eyes
or give any sign of consciousness. Breath
lug with the greatest difficulty, almost
suffocjited with phlegm and distorted in
feature and frame by the force of 'he par
alytic action, be nevertheless livei on
nearly three days after the doctors said it
was Impossible for him to-live more than
an hour or two longer.
A Hard-working Jurist. -
The paralytic stroke of Justice Miller
was a surprise to every one in Washing
ton. His constitution was apparently oue
of iron, and for years he worked more
thau twelve hours out of the t wentv-four.
It was his habit to go into his office, at
his home ou Massachusetts avenue, as
loon as he bad finished his breakfast, and
to work there upou his cases until the su
preme court met at noon. During his
whole career as a supreme court justice
he massed scarcely a day in attendance
upon the court when it was sitting, and
he worked far into the night writing his
opinions and passing upon cases after his
return from the Capitol.
He Made Ilia Own Career.
He was a Keif -educated man, and he
never hail the advantage of college train
ing. Like Justice Bradley he was very
fond of mathematics, and he kept up his
mathematical studies during his latter
years. He started life as a drug clerk,
and spent three years in making up pre
scriptions. He then weut to a medical
school iu Kentucky and practiced medi
cine for eight years after he had obtained
his diploma. He found it impossible for
a youn doctor to get along without a
wife, and he had two children before he
decided to give up medicine for law.
When he hci-nii to study law he took up
the study of Ijiiui, and acquired a thor
ough knowledge of t tie language. He. how
ever, thought that study unnecessary for
young men iu the later years of his life.
Opinion of Clay and Hlaine.
He knew Henry Clay perso naliy. and at
one time, in speaking of him in compar-
i.on with tilaiue, said: .Mr. Blaine and
Clay are very much alike. Mr. Blaiue
bus the same courage, the same magnetic
intiuenee and the same power over men
that Clay had. Their careers have been
much similar. Both have tieen senators,
both have been beaten for the presidency,
both have been seakersof the house, und
both have held much the suiiil- idea, as to
political matters. Blaine has great ex
ecutive ability, and so had Clay. I doubt,
however, whether Clay would have made
ago.nl president and still 1 would have
liked to have seen hiui elected. I would
like for once to see a irx -at political party
leader in the White House hii 1 1 am tired
to death of tiikiug characterless men
simply because the politicians hate the
leaders ami cannot consent to see them
win the great prize of politics.
The Justice anil Abraham Lincoln.
Justice Miller always held a high opin
ion of President Lincoln. The last time
he saw him whs at the inaugural ball at
the time of his second election. The pres
ident whs talking with Charles Sumner
when Justice Miller came up. He turned
to him with great cordiality und said:
"How are rhe justices and their gowns?''
Judge Miller replied that they were all
right and presently Lincoln went on:
"Miller, you were brought up on a farm,
weren't yon?" "Yea," replied the
judge. "Well," said President Lin
coln, "you must have seen the break
ing of land and the burn
ing up of timber in a clearing. You have
seen the heavy bark fall off from a half
decayed log, while out from under the
bark would come great winged ants,
which would waddle oil with the funni
est kind of clumsy dignity. Ho you
know, judge-, I never see oue of you jus
tices with your gowns on but 1 think of
one of those ants which we used to see on
the farm in clearing." Judge Miller be
lieved iu the wearing of the silk gown, and
he told President Lincoln that he thought
the busy justices were very well com
pared to the industrious ant.
Aa Incorruptible Court.
He said not long ago: "I am inclined to
think very highly of the purity of
the American bench. We decided
cases last year which would have
enabled any member of the court, by
taking advantage of the views he had of
the majority of the judges, by hinting
theui to his wife or to some iutluential
friend, to have made a million dollars
But you will find none of the judges a
cent richer from such a source, and no
whisHir of that kind has ever Is-en heard.
All kinds of schemes are planned by spec
ulators to find out what the court is go
ing to do lieforehand, but I am glad to
say that there is no instance on record of
a justice of the supreme court violating
the trust which he has sworn to keep in
violate." I'ersonal Characteristic.
Justice Miller was very simple in his
habits. He often rode out to the Capitol
and back in the street cars and the 5-cetit
herdii s and passed up the fares for colored
washerwomen and laboring meu again
and again. He would talk to any one,
and although he was a stickler for the
court, he was a plain, common seuse, ev
eryday man out of it.
GEN. BELKNAP'S DEATH.
The Weil-Known Veteran llea Alone and
Washington City, Oct. 14. Much sur
prise and regret was occasioned yester
day morning by the announcement of the
death of Gen. W. W. Belknap. He was
found dead in bed in bis roomby his law
partner. Gen. Belknap had not been seen
by any one since Saturday about mid
night, when he retired. The chamber
maid called to him yesterday morning
and got no reply, so she went to the office,
where his p.irf.ier had just arrived, and
it was discovered that he was dead. He
had died some time in the thirty hours
since he was last seen.
Sketch of Hla Ufa.
William Worth Belknap had been one
of the most noted meu in the country.
He was born in Newburg, N. V., Sept. 23,
18-1). ami was the son of Gen William G.
Belknap, a tlislinguished soldier of the
war of 1H1 nod the Mexican war. At
the outbreak of the civil war he was prac
ticing law at Keokuk, la., where be went
in 18.V. He had served as a Ieiiiocrat in
the loA-a legislature in 1H.YT. He took a
regiment to the front, of which be was
commander. Iu his in lit iry career he
was at Shiloh and Yicksburg and was
with Sherman on his march to the sen
ile was promoted to the rank of brigadier
general and major general.
After the war be was made collector of
internal revenue at Keokuk. Iu Grant's
aecoud ' term he was made secretary of
war, and while he was serving iu this of
fice the blow fell upon him that nearly
wrecked his life. Heister Clymer, of
Pennsylvania, who was chairman of the
military committee of congress, created
a great sensation by bringing in article
of impeachment against Belknap, whom
he accused of having given away a post
traders!! ip for a money consideration. He
was impeached but the impeachment
failed in the senate. He had resigned his
oflice as soon as the chargj was made.
W He at Cinilty Han?
That is a question, that is answered va
riously, but the general opinion is thaJ
Belknap sacrificed himself to save a
woman, and that woman was his wife.
He made no defense. He idolized his
wife, and it was she who got alt the
money, and used her influence over her
husband to obtain for those who gave the
money the privileges that were wanted.
The couple have nut lived together tor
some years, ajthough there was no legal
separation. His personal friends never
believed in his guilt, and many others
were with them.
THEY MAY BE HAPPY YET,
Bat the Mother-ln-Law Talka Some Very
NEW YoliK, Oct. 14. The trnth of that
venerable adage that true love never rnts
smoothly for any length of time has again
been amply t tested in tbe case of An
thony J. Kmteln, of Brooklyn, and Juln
EI Stinson, of this city. Anthony nu t
Juiie a year ago and was smitten win
her charms. He wooed her, and after a
brief but pleasant courtship the couple
were united in Camden, N. J., but the
marriage was kept a profound secret Ix
cause tbe bride was a Protestant and tb )
groom a most devout Koman Catholic.
The Old Folks' Fiat.
Anthony had lawn warued by bis par
ents that if be ever married he must
choose a girl who was of his religion or
they would disown him. The son tool
the warning deeply to heart for a time,
but as soon as be met Julie it fled. But
how he was going to keep the matters
secret puzzle ! not only himself but his
Wife as wtM. The couple finally con
cluded that there was only one way out
of the difficulty and that was trf live
apart, the husband meanwhile to try and
prevail upon the elder Kinteln to give
consent to the marriage to a Protestant.
The Cat Out of the Has.
When approached upon this tender
suhject lust March, young Rinteln's
father, who lives at 175 Putnam avenue,
Brooklyn, was emphatic in his refusal to
consent to the marriage. Anthony was
i ti a quandary, and more so w hen he pur
chased a Brooklyn paper the next morn -ing
and read the announcement of his
marriage to Julie K. Stinson, at Camden,
N. J. Mr. Kinteln. the elder, also read
the notice of the marriage, and the second
act of the social drama began r ight there.
Anthony Was a I'oor Ntick.
As the story goes Anthony was ordered
to remain away from his wife, whether
she instituted divorce proceedings or not.
He did as he was bid. and ere long was
sued by his pretty wife for divorce. Not
to lie outdone. Anthony brought a counter
suit, charging his spouse with some very
serious things. He said she was a biga
mist, and she returned the compliment.
Then he brought nearly twenty witnesses
to swear to his wife's indiscretion.
And Julie Was Very Forgiving.
Before the suit was concluded the de
fendant gave it up, and Anthony got an
absolute divorce. After the divorce had
lieeu granted Anthony met Julie frequent
ly, uti'l I he couple went out riding and to
dinner parties as if nothing had hap
pened. He told his relatives and friends
that he still loved his divorced wile, and
that the whole trouble bad been brought
about by bis family.
The finiMl I'ncle Comes Forward.
Julie's uncle, John Stinson, who resides
in Chii-nfo, and is said to lie a million
aire, here stepped iu upon the scene, and
tried to have the divorce set aside, but
Anthony's lather said that it should not
be done. Both parlies were willing, and
unbeknown to their parents went to Cam
den, N. J., Saturday night, and were re
married by Kev. W. 11. Burrill, the same
minister who performed the ceremony
she Sixes Things ("p I'rettr Well.
The couple were married in New Jersey
to avoid any legal complications. Imme
diately after their second marriage the
happy pair started for Chicago, where
Anthony has tteen promised a lucrative
position. "1 hope they will now live hap
pily together," said Mrs. Stinsou, "but I
doubt it very much. A man. or one wbo
pretends to lie such, who could say w hut
he did against my Julie and pretend to
love her is fickle indeed, i have no faith
iu such men."

Chicago, Oct. 14. Among the arrivals
at the Sherman house yesterday was a
family holding very peculiar religious be
liefs, of which they are the sole apostles
and followers. The entire church consists
of Mr. and Mrs. Chynowith, Mr. and Mrs.
E. A. Hayes, and the little daughter of
the latter. Mrs. Chynowith is tbe high
priestess of the new faith. She does not
claim to lie Christ, liecanse she teaches
that no such person ever existed, but she
does claim that for thirty seven years she
has been as perfect as he is supposed to
have been, and that during that time she
has had all tbe miraculous powers attrib
uted to him. Unlike tbe high priestess of
theosophy, Sirs. Chynowith is neither
fascinating nor brilliantly intellectual.
The rest of the family are very meek but
very devout believers in her high calling.
Points of the New Creed.
Tbe new religion is a combination of
spiritualism, theosophy, Christianity, and
the faith cure. While denying that they
have anything to do with spiritualism,
Mrs. Chynowith claims that she has the
power of being visited by her dead friends
aud relatives. While she looks wh scorn
upon theosophy and reincarnation, she
claims that she has had no beginning and
will have no end. W h.le denying Chris
tianity, aud even claiming that the Son
of God was never upon earth, Mr. Chy
nowith nevertheless bases h.r somewhat
startling doctrines upon the Bible. From
what could be gathered from her some
what incoherent explanation, the new
faith teaches that Christ is only a type ot
what every human being may become
an absolutely perfect and all-powerful
one, such as Mrs. Chynowith.
Mighty Handy to Have Aronnd.
The individual man Christ never ex
isted, but whenever people reach a certain
state he lives in them. The few human
beings who have reached this advanced
stage are known by the possession of the
powers spoken of ill St. Mark the power
of healing by the mere laying on of hands,
the power of handling deadly reptiles, of
taking poisons with impunity, and divers
other out of-tne-way performances. Mrs.
Chynowith not only possesses all these,
hut she also has the divine power of bear
ing another's burdens, though she is quite
literal in her interpretation of this.
Takes Folson for Her Frien.la.
For instunce, the entire family yester
day bore witness to the fact that just be
fore their arrival in Chicago a cinder
flew into the little girl's eye, and, becom
ing very painful, Mrs. Chynowith piaced
her baud upon tbe little one's eye, where
upon the cinder was instantly transferred
to her own. Mrs. Chynowith is quite ad
dicted to the use of large quantities of ar
senic, but she only takes it for the benefit
of her friends. It waa slated hy her hus
band that on one occasion a physician had
ordered that poison iu small doses for a
patient, but that the latter was afraid of
it, but feared the displeasure of the doc
tor if be found I he arsenic unused. Mrs.
Chynowith kindly came to the rescue amLl

Mrs. Chynowith finds that her powers
sometimes suve her much exertion, a-, it
i- scarcely necessary f r her to visit the
ilyiug. Three years ugo, she said, a
friend was about to die, and the relatives,
to console her last niomeuts, said that
t it-y would send .her farewell words
t Mrs.' Chynowith. The reply was
tbat that would not be necessary,
as she would be with tbat lady be fore any
letter could reach her. And sure enough,
so says Mrs. Chyuowith, on her way to
h -T future home the young lady did stop
in her spirit to have a last chat. Such
v sitsas these are every-day occurrences
with Mrs. Chyuowith.
Not Doing Missionary Work.
They have made no effort to extend
tl eir belief, but ou tbeir return to their
home at San Jose, Cal., they propose
erecting a temple in which it nmy be
taught by the priestess. The latter says,
however, that tbe world must come to
hi r temple to be taught. The
Christ part of her bus never

trada from the Remarks Made at Dif
ferent Points and Incidents of the Day's
Pittsui:bo, Pa., Oct 14. After a run
through Indiana and Ohio, which was no
table for tlie numerous stops and frequent
speeches, the presidential party reached
this city last evening at about 8:13 The
start was made from Indianapolis
promptly at 0 a. m. At the president's
special request there was no demonstra
tion at bis home city either on his arrival
or departure, as he wanted to get thor
oughly rested for the arduous day that
lay before him. The rest was opportune
and the president was thoroughly re
freshed thereby. Pendleton, Ind., was
the first place stopped at, but the stop
was brief and the train sped on to Ander
son where there was time for a short
speech aud a great deal of enthusiasm.
The speech referred to the added pros
perty of the place resulting from the dis
covery of natural gas, and closed with
kind words for the school children.
Mnncle and Winchester.
Muncie was next reached, and here
Tom Browne took the place of master of
ceremonies, and introduced the presideut
to the multitude of people surrounding
the train. While the president was
speaking the train moved ahead a few
yards, and the president remarked that
he hud heard of uudieuccs leaving speak
ers, but he ha 1 during the morning fre
quently been drawn away from his audi
ences. His remarks were devoted to the
industries of the suction and its progress
in prosperity, and closed with a plea for
love for country and flag. Another gre at
throng was congregated around tbe stand
erected at Winchester, where every tele
graph pole flew a national flag. The pres
idents speech dealt with the necessity of
remembering that although we differ in
policies v-e are all Americans, and the
benefits of the public schools.
The Reception at Vnlon City.
School children were the feature of the
welcome at Cnion City. Lines of them
stood lefore the hotel, and strewed flow
ers before the party as they advanced to
t he chairs placed in front of the building.
Tbe president was introduce I. and in the
course of his speech said, in reference to
thej;oo t it did him to look in the faces of
people who had no fault to find: "(ire at
as the government is, vast as is our civil
list, it is wholly inadequate to satisfy
even the reasonable demand of men, and
so from disappointment, reasonable or
unreasonable, we turn with confidence
and receive with encouragement these
kindly greetings from the toilers of the
country." Continuing, be referred to the
fact that the state line was near by and
said state lines were swallowed up in the
love we should have for the common
conutry. He clos-d with the words ad
dressed to the children, aud to all pres
ent: "God bless you every onn. Good
bye." Short Stop lin Rnnle.
At Versailles a short stop was made and
handshaking was the only feature, as it
was also at Sydney. At Degraff the
school children were present and the
president gave them a short and appro
priate address, and shook hands with as
many of them as possible. At Bellefon
taine the president spoke to the people
from the platform of the car, congratu
lating them on the evidences of prosperi
ty he saw ou every hand and the fact tbat
famine was unknown in this country. He
introduced Secretary Tracy, who simply
bowed us the train moved away. No stops
of consequence were made until Crestline
was reached. At Larue and Galliou there
were seasons of handshaking, and at the
latter place the president tried to speak,
but the crowd was too enthusiastic to
The lirreting at Crestline.
A bnnd of music and a great throng
greeted the president at Crestline. The
president remarked that be had already
made seven or eight speeches and had
about got to the end of variety. He re
peated Abraham Lincoln s words that
this was a government of the people, by
the jeople and for the people and adjured
his hearers to meet the responsibility of
citizeiislup like men. He spoke a few
felicitous words to the boys and girls
present and closed as follows: "The fields
are green with the promise of another
year. Let our hearts he hopeful; let us
be faithful and true for ourselves aud our
country.' Cheers. It was) 1.17 p. m.
when the train left Crestline.and luncheon
was served on the train en route.
AT MANSFIELD AND CANTON.
The Neighbors of Senator Sherman aad
MaJ. MrKinley Turn Out.
At Mansfield a crowd of l.uuo people
met the train, rx-nator t-hermmi intro

home ot your distinguished senator and my
friend, ll 'beers. 1 am sure that, however
you may differ from til in In political opinion.
the ieoilr of .Manstic.ld and of Ohio are proud

Mrs. Sherman was sitting in a carriage
near the station. The presideut bowed to
her, shook bauds with benator Sherman,
and as the senator left the car the train
pulled out of Mauafleld.
At Woosler the president left the train
and went to a small platform a few yards
from the station, under the escort of the
local committee, at the head of which
was Dr. Stoddard, once his instructor in
chemistry at the Miama university of Ox
ford, O. He was received with prolong ed
cheering, and addressed the crowd
Massillon was the next station where a
reception bad bten arranged. Before
reaohttig the town tbe presideut was sa
luted with a ringing cheer from a group
of factory operatives gathered ou the
bank at the side of the railroad track.
At the station a large crowd was assem
bled and Mayor Keed introduced the
presideut to the audience, after welcom
ing him on behalf of tbe Grand Army of
the Kepublic, tbe school children and the
oitizena. The president spoke of the ne
cessity of diversified avocations for the
people of any country and said we would
all be uubappyif we belonged to the same
calling, even if all were lawyers. He then
touched on the labor question as follows:
I hope it Is true here that everybody is net
ting fa r return for his labor. We caunot af
ford to have in America any discontented
classes: and if fair wages arc paid for fair
work we will have none. Cheers. I am not
one of those who believe that cheapness la the
highest good. I ara not one of those who be
lieve tbat it can be to my Interest or to your
interest to purchase iu the murket anything
below a price that nays to the men who make
It fair living wacvs. Cries of That's Right.
and Cheers. We should all live and let live
in this country.
Among McKlnley'a Neighbors.
Canton, the home of Representative
McKinley, was the next place to claim
Bpeech, and here the president put in a
good word lor tbe malar. He said:
I am glad to be at the home cf one with
whom I have been associated in congressional
duties for a number of years, and who. In ail
personal relations, with you, his neighbors.
nas won my regard as 1 am sure he has won

ler bill. I am sure vou are all the aDuroelative

Kinley. Cheers. Kind hearted, iranerous.
and full of chivalrous courtesy to his oppo
nents, I am an re be nas not failed to win your
respect and that Canton Is proud of him as a
son, . ,
A Great Jam at Alliance, i
Another multitude had gathered at Al
liance, and the president began his speech
with the remark that there Is nothing la
which tbe American people are hunter
noon their public servants thsn in the
insatiable demand they make for public
speech, and considering the number of
speeches he had made since breakfast he
bad a right to say so. He spoke lor a
few minutes on the growth of manufac
turing in this country, and when he bad
concluded began to shake hands with the
people near the car, and tbe struggle to
get within reaching distance of his hand
was fearful. It is surprising that there
were no serious injuries inflicted upon
the crowd. At Salem, the last station on
the programme for the day, the crowd de
manded a speech, bat the president askea
to be excused. His voice was indistinct
and showed the wear and tear of the day's
A lteconl Breaking Tour.
