Berlin. April 25. Gen. von Moltke,
one of the great historic figures of the
German empire, died last night at his res
idence in this city. The news spread rap
idly through tbe city, and on every hand
created ths most profound sorrow. Em
pjror William, whose love for the old sol
dier amounted almost to idolatry, shed
tear.- when he heard of the general's
death, and immediately ordered that ex
tensive preparations be made to show the
esteem in which he was held by the na
tion. Residences and business places in
Berlin are already draped, and the city
presents a spectacle similar to those wit
nessed after the deaths of Emperor Will
iam and Emperor Frederick.

Telegrams of condolenca have been re

worth as a citizen and a soldier. Empe
ror Francis Joseph has already an
nounced his intention of being present at
the funeral. Kin Umberto of Italy, ex
presses deep sorrow, and says that the
general was the foremost soldier of the
ceutury. The fuueral wiil probably take
place on Tuesday.
First a Soldier of Denmark.
Count llelmnth Carl Bernhard von
Ioltke, one of the greatest strategists
the world has ever seen, was born on Oct.
3S, 1-KX He first entered the Danish serv
ice, beinj; of Danish descent, but shortly
afterwar.l, in passed into the Prus
sian army. In about ten years he sue
ceeded iu achieving promotion to tbe
staff. In 1S35 he made a voyage to the
east, wbeae he was introduced to Sultan
Mabmoud of Turkey. At the request of
the sultan Von Moltke undertook impor
tant military reforms in the Turkish serv
ice, and also won considerable credit: in
tbe Syrian campaign of 1S39. Returning
to Prussia he was appointed chief of staff
in ISort, and aide de camp to Prince Fred
erick William. He devised the campaign
of against Austria, .and, having beet
promoted to the rank of general, he di
rected operations, under King William, ia
the decisive battle of Sailowa.
WHERE HE WON HIS LAURELS.
The Franco-1'russiau AVnr Fought Under
He foresaw the collision which occurred
between France and Germany in 1S70, and
planned a campaign as a counter against
the French attack, which he laid before
King William of Prussia as early as 1908
an J wLich was followed out in ls0 as far
as it was possible to carry out a paper
campaign in tbe vicissitudes of actual
warfare. The success of this campaign,
one of the most brilliant in the annals of
warfare, rts largely dne to the plans and
leadership of Moltke. When the crash of
war came France bad not only Prussia to
contend with. Bismarck had welded the
jtlous German states intotbeGermanem
pire and Ixuis Napoleon was confronted
by a united people of 38,000,000.
Tne Capitulation of Farts.
The history of the Franco-Prussian war
is fresh in men's minds, with its record of
bluster and blunders on the one side and
of well-laid plans and relentless execution
on the other side. Tbe German armies
were like huge anacondas, circling and
constricting the badly organized and ill
generaled forces of Napoleon, until Metz
having fallen, and catastrophe come upon
the army at Sedan, the conquering Ger
mans sat down before Paris, which, rind
ing itself between famine on the one
hand and tbe commune on the other, was
ere long obliged to open its gates to the
invader as the least of threatening evils.'
Honored by King William.
King William set tbe high value on Lis
services which they deserved. After the
capitulation of Metz the king created him
a count. On the conclusion of the armis
tice he gave him one of the five grand
badges of the irou cross, and on the day of
tbe return of the Prussian armies to Ber
lin be made him a field marshal. Besides
this be received a donation of 300,000 thal
er s, nearly $225,000, and the freedom of
several German cities as a token of the
appreciation of his ability and services by
T4ie Later Years of His Life.
He passed his latter days upon his es
tate at Kraisan, situated in a quiet valley
three uiilessoutbeast of tbe Silesian station
Schwerdonitz. He bought the house and
grounds with the funds granted him in
lvb by parliament, where he lived in
quietness until his death. lie was a highly
educated gentleman. He understood sev
eral languages, and wrote a multitude of
works on geography and military science.
He was a brave leader in tbe field, but it
was in the study that he laid the plans
which gave Germany a place among the
states of Europe.
A MaMer of Military strategy.
Like a master cliess player he sat with
war maps liefore him and dictated the
moves of his opponents by his own superb
strategy. His army was one vast ma
chine, complete in ail its parts and thor
oughly understood by the man at the
lever. And now he has gone to take his
place among the statesmen and warriors
who have made history. He has gone to
join his imperial master, William I. who,
with the assistance of the warrior Moltke
and the statesman Bismarck, raised Ger
.31 any from a collection of insignificant
litates to the proud position she now holds
among the first of European nations.
