In the death of 'William Wiudoai, Sec

It is seldom that mt-n ra away under

aL'y they receive Home warning of the
dread nietsenfrer's aj proach. but in tbi
case the summons ame with ttartlin;
KuddenLess. Apparently in the best of
mental atd phys.tal health. Mr. Windom
was htricken down n'moi-t v.ithout a mo
ment's warning at the banquet ta'. le, and
expired in the presence of tie gutststo
whom he had just spoken on oi.e .f the
inijKirtaiit queti. ns of the day. The trite
saying: "Death was et the feast." often
employed in a mt taphoncal 8 use. was in
this instance iiteraliy t:we.
Of the character ami ublic services of
Secretary Wiudom it is unnvefrgsary to
spp ak. All ai e faniilinr wth them. He
had enemies, as all public meu have, an 1
many o! Lis legislative and financial
measures were severely criticised. a thev
were boi nd to bp. but he had more friends
than enemies and more defeudi-rs than
critics. For the mcfct important ositin
he held, that cf secretary of the treasury,
he was well qualified. He met and con
quered some of the most tei-inus financial
difficulties with which the government has
had to deal since the war. It has been
said that he was in too close sympathy
with Arall street, but history w'ili prob
ably say of him that what he "did was for
the good of the whole country, though it
may incidentally have aided the Spe -ula-tors.
It is something of a coincidence that
THB LATE SECRETART WIXIOM.
President Harrison should, like Mr. CleTe
land. lose his secretary of the treasury.
Daniel Manning, it will remembered,
died while holding that office under the
last administration. Like Windom, he
was one of the chief executive's most
trusted advisers and his death was re
garded almo-t in th? 1-ght of a calamity
by the 1'resideut.
The financial achievement for n hich 'Win
dom has turn and will continue to le most
horn re 1 was the extension ,f more than
:.00,tCO.(H( of 5 and fi j-ercent bonds at
SS' l-r cent during his short a hninistra

provision for the funding of thce lindt
