LowEU, Mass., Jan. 16. At General
Butler' home on Belvidere Hill,- at 9:30
yesterday morning, private funeral services
were held. Rev. Dr.A .St. John Chambre,of
St. Ann's Episcopal church. ' read
the offices for the dead. The body
was : in the drawing room.
The stars and stripes were not on the coffin
during the private funeral services. Presi
dent Harrison's wreath and some flowers
were laid upon the-coffin. Among those
present were such leading men of the city
as are close' freinds of the family, and the
general's kinsmen, Messrs. Plympton and
Drinkwater, Cadet Butler Ames, of West
Point; General Ames, Frank L. Washburn,
O. D. Barrett, and others. The was no
address by the clergyman. After the short
services, closing with the Lord's prayer,
those present looked upon the general for
the last time.
Taken to Huntington Hall.
A detachment of comrades Post 42, G.
A. R., reached the house directly after the
private funeral exercises. Their standards
were draped, and the banner of the post,
bearing a portrait of the dead commander,
was also in mourning. Colonel Diu.nn,
who had chai se of the arrangements for
the funeral, was in command. Comrades
bore the body from the house to a hearse
drawn by four horses. A wild wind was
bloing from the river over the hill. The
veterans suffered, but not a man soujiLt,
shelter. As the body was tarried from the
portals of the house, thedrums of the band
rumbled, the colors were dipped and the
company saluted. When the march ti
Huntington hall was taken up arms were
reversed and the officers dropped to the
rear of the detachment.
The ISody Lying; in (State.
The streets were crowded as the band
signalled by dirges the passage of the gen
eral's body from the house to Huntington
hall, where it was to lie in state, A pre..t
crowd was waiting to be admitted tothebull.
In the hall the coffin was placed iu the cea
terof the floor. From the ceiling to the
floor a wall of black extended. The dim
light did not extend to this wall of black,
and the effect waa solemn and weird. Grand
Army men guaruipd the casket. On the
coffir rested thepWord nnd epaulettes that
the general wor". from Lowell to. the Gulf
end back agnijn. Behind the catafalque
rested a bank i of flowers that had come
from President (Harrison, from the convicts
of the state prisou, and from all classes of
people betwijen those extremes.
Fearful Rush Into the Hall.
When the crowd was'aCmited to the hall
they almost carried the doors off their
hinges. They struggled up stairs and
bowled over the police who tried to re
strain them. Shouts and cries awoke the
echoes of the hall where the dead man lay.
Huntingfon hall whenever General Butler
appeared there in life saw turbulent scenes,
but those of yesterday surpassed anything
ever seen before at the old hall. Down in
the streets thousands pressed forward
when they saw the doors open. All the
afternoon a steady stream of people poured
in. but the crowd that wanted to get in
did not diminish. The exit was on Shat
tnck street and a stream of people poured
through that door.
Kept ITp Till Eleven at Night.
No impression could lie made on the
mass that clamored for admission at the
other side of the ball. late in the after
noon the doors were closed and the officers
had an hour's rest. It wns designed to
close the hall at o'clock nntil this morn
tLg, b ut at 6 o'clock they were opened up
ngain. This time the people were beaten
into lines and more order was maintained
up to 11 o'clock, when the final closing was
made. Hundreds left the place without
getting in, and many others who wanted
to get out of the jam were forced to wait
and be swept in to the hall by the stream.
', LAST HONORS TO THE DEAD.
The Cireateat Funeral Fvont Kver Wit
nessed at Lowrell.
This morning there was another crush at
the hall, those who failed to seethe remains
yesterday again crowding the doors, but
the police arrangements were better. Never
had Lowell made such preparations for a
funeral. Hundreds of prominent men from
all parts of the state, besides many from
other states, were here to pay the last trib
ute to the iron-willed soldier andstatesman,
and the event was the greatest of the kind
ever witnessed here. The militia, the visit
ing dignitaries, Grand Army posts, and
about every Lowell society joined in the
procession and swelled it to enormous pro
portions. Municipal Office Cloned.
The municipality noted the occasion hv
J closing all the city offices nnd all the mills
Cave tne operatives an opportunity to
view the procession, which wus taken ad
vantage of to a man, for But ler was popu
lar among the niitl men. While the pro
session was en route to the cemetery the
Bre bells tolled seventy-five strokes, the
years of the life of tbe general. A G. A.
R. guard of honor escorted the remains
from the hall to Kt. Anne's church, where
they gave way to the militia, which from
that point assumed charge of the Obsequies.
Service at St. Anne's Church.
Tbe church services were the simple and
impressive ones of the Episcopal ritual and
at the conclusion the body was borue to
the hearse for the last time, the troops pre
aented arms, the bands struck up solemn
dirges and with arms reversed the militia
fell in behind the body and the march to
the cemetery was taken np. Many build
ings in the city were draped in funeral
black and flags were half masted every
where. The honorary pall bearers were:
John A. Lowell, E. J. Sherman, Edward
A Very, E. T. Burleigh, Charles H. Allen,
Colonel George J. Carney, George F. Rich

Tbe line of march was crowded with
people wbo stood in silent respect as toe
ashes of the general were conveyed to
their last resting place. - Arrived at the
cemetery the casket was deposited over the
window less palace of rest, the relatives of
the dead took their places in the inner
circle while the militia, the G. A. R. and
the other participants formed outside.! The
G. A. R. burial service was read, a bene
diction was pronounced by Rev. Dr.
Chambre, the Sixth regiment fired a volley
over the grave "taps" were sounded by the
bngler, and the remains of a man whose
name is known all over the world were left
to their eternal sleep.
GREENHUT REPLIES TO BURROWS.
He Declares That Gentleman's Whisky
Trust Accusations False.
Chicago, Jan. 16. PreaidenfJ. B. Green
hut of the Distillers' and Cattle Feeders'
1 association, is not alarmed by the resolu
tion introduced in congress by Burrows of
Michigan demanding investigation of the
whisky trust, which attracted so much at
tention during the last few days. "It is
well known to everybody," said Greenhut,
"that the Distillers' and Cattle Feeding
company is a legally organized corporation
under the laws of Illinois, and as such is
subject to the law as is any other corpora
tion. The names of its officers, their places
of business, and aU the information asked
for by Mr. Burrows in his resolution can
be ascertained in any city of the United
States by simply asking the questions of
any mercantile agents."
Absnr' in livery Particular.
Mr. Greenhut continued by saying: "So
far as the products of this company are
concerned, it is a fact that they Bre the
purest and bert in tbe markets of the
world, and they today rank higher than
any other. The revenue department could
and would, if called upon by Mr.Burrows,
assure him that the product manufactured
by us is pure and not adulterated in any
manner whatever. They are made entirely
under the supervision and control of the
department. As to the intimation that
tbe company is doing busines in violation
of the law of the law of the state of
Illinois orof the United States it is absurd
jn every particular." .
SATOLLI IS PERMANENT.
The Tope Makes Him His lteprescntative
Washington-, Jan. 16. Pope Leo has
permanently established an apostolic dele
gation in the United States, with Monsignor
Satolli as first delegate. He will act for
the pope in church controversies, perma
nently, as he has done for some time tem
porarily. He settled tbe McGlynn case,
much, it is stated, to Archbishop Corrigan's
disgust, as he let McGlynn back into
priestly authority, and did not condemn
his anti-poverty teachings. Satolli will
constitute a sort of ' ecclesiastical supreme
