The Ex-President Passes to the

A SUDDEN TUEN FOB THE WORSE
Quickly Closes the Iiecord of tho Eminent
Oblo Citizen Ills Last Thoughts and
Words Dwell On His Wife, Who Had
"Gone Before" "I Know I tin Going to
Where Lucy Is" Account of His Brief
Illness and Sketch of His Ufe and rqb
Uc Services His Army Record.
Fremont, O. Jan. 18. Ex-President
Rutherford B. Hayes died at 11 o'clock last
night. Early in the evening an inquiry
elicited the response that the general had
passed a fairly well day and was resting
nicely last evening. The change from bet
ter to worse was rapid and at 11 o'clock the
distinguished ex-president passed away.
The first intelligence of this was received
when 'Webb C. ITayes came down town
and quietly amonncclKthat his father had
just died. Ex-President Hayes was
brought here last Saturday suffering from
an attack of rheumatism of the heart, with
which lie had been stricken at Cleveland.
His Second Attack in Two Week.
It was the second attack of the kind he
had received within two weeks, and al
though his condition was regarded as
somwhat serious and excited the alarm of
his family, the encouragement given them
by Dr. Hilbest, the family physician, led
them to believe that the patient would soon
recover. Fur this reason all knowledge of
the ex-president's illness was kept from the
public, and the f:!Ct that he was suffering
from heart trouble did not become known
until Moi:rJay afternoon. While Dr. Ilil-
best remained almo-t constantly at the dis
tinguished patient's bedside no alarming
symptoms appeared until last evening,
when he became rapidly worse.
Irixis-cri On Coins Home.
Ex-rrc-Mclit Hayes left honiolast Monday
week on 4 t-r'P to Columbus, Buffalo and
Cleveland. At the last named place he
spent a few days with his son, Webb C.
Hayes. During the last month the ex
president hr.s complained of one or two
slight attacks of neuralgia of the heart,
but as it soon passed away he thought
nothing of it. On Sat urday he experienced
a severe recurrence of the malady, but
being prepared for his return home he
proceeded on bin journey, accompanied by
nis son vv e&o. At the L nion station, twou
entering the car, "he complained of exhaus
tion and asked for stimulants. They were
given him and he refused to return to his
son's housr, saying: ''I want to go home.
I would rather die in Spiegel Grove than
live anywhere else."
I.nxt Thoughts with His W ife.
He was seized with violent pains in the
chest which lasted nntil after his return
home. He was treated for angina pectoris.
out while relieved of distress his heart
never recovered its vigor, and life was
suddenly terminated at 11 o'clock last
night by paralysis of the heart. While
dying in bis own chamber he frequently
referred to a visit made to his wile's grave
on the preceding Sunday and spoke of the
quiet beioity of the snow covered landscape.
lie said that he almost wished he was ly
ing thereby the side of his wife. It. wis
all so pacefnl, "and yet," he said, "I aui
not unhappy. My life is an exceptionally
TO "Going Where I.ury I."
The family were hastily summoned to
his bedside when it became apparent abont
10 o'clock that the ex-president was sink
ing. His last words were to his family
physician. Dr. Hilbest, to whom he said:
"I know that I am going to where Locy
is." The words were spoken distinctly and
his face bore a happy smile. Earlier in the
evening there was every reason to sup
pose that the patient would pass a com
fortable night and the members of the fam
ily retired to rest, but were summoned
when the physician feared that the dread
summons was near. The exact time of
death was 10:45.
A LIFE OF DUTY WELL DONE.
Brief l;iographical Sketch of the Irarl
Rutherford Birchard Hayes was born in
Delaware, O., Oct. 4, 1822. He was a de
scendant in the sixth generation of George
Hayes, who left Scotland in 16tO and set
tled at Windsor, Conn. He was graduated
from Kenyon college in 1842, and subse
quently spent two years at the law school
at Cambridge, Mass. Ia 1845 he was ad
mitted to the bar at Marietta, O., and com
menced the practice at Fremont in 184'J.
He removed to Cincinnati and soon had a
very remunerative active.
His Record in the War.
In 1M51 he abandoned the practice of his
profession and entered the army a major
of the Thirty-third Ohio volunteers. For
his gallant services at the battle of Win
chester he was breveted major general.
Mr. Hayes' war record made him very
popular in Ohio and while still in the army
he was elected to congress from the Second
district, but refused to take his seat until
the war should be ended. He was re-elected
in 1S66 &ud had served one term, when he
was elected governor of Ohio. He was
elected for the third time in 1875 and while
occupying this place was nominated by the
Republican party in 1876 as its candidate
for president of the United States.
The Decinion of 1877.
The contest was severe and close, and
after the election disputes arose as to the
electoral votes of several states. The dis
pute was finally referred to a commission
of five senators, five representatives and
five judges of the supreme court of the
United States. The commission decided
by a vote of 8 to 7 that the electoral Totes
ot the disputed states should be given to
Hayes, and he was thereby elected by a
majority of one over Samuel J. Tilden.
He was inaugurated March 4, 1877. After
serving one term he retired to private life
and bad since lived at Fremont.
Dr.'D. Thacher Graves, who was con
victed by a Den ver court and jury on oir
cumstantial evidence purely of the murder
of Mrs. Barnaby, has been granted a new
trial by the Colorado sunreme court. This

NO END TO THE KANSAS SQUABBLE
The Teaee Committee Fails to Agree
Tor-EKA.-K.m., Jan. IS. Once more have
efforts to stttle the difficulties in the
house and briug about a satisfactory solu
tion of the problems of legislation which
are daily growing gieater, failed, and
now the two factions are seemingly far
ther apart than ever. The governor's mes
sage was presented to the legislature yes
terday, but possibly out of consideration
for their rivals.the Populist house declined
to listen to the reading of the document,
which would fill a page in an ordinary
newspaper, and it was ordered printed.
Can't Draw Their Salaries,
Whether there will be any further at
tempts made to bring about a settlement
of the present complications in the house
it is impossible to say, but the prospects
are certainly not of the brightest. In the
meantime the members are nnable to draw
any salaries and as many of them partic
ularly the Populists are not possessed of
bank accounts there is sure to be trouble
with their landlords in the city before long.
Report of the Committee.
Yesterday morning soon after the two
houses met the committee reported as fol
lows: "Mr. Chaiumax: Your committee ap
pointed to recommend a plan for an ad
justment of the. differences between the re
spective bodies claiming legal status on this
floor respectfully report that we have held
three sessions, and have canvassed the en-
Mire situation fully and dispassionately, but
nave laueu to reach any conclusion to sub
mit to this meeting. Without making any
recommendation whatever yonr commitue
ask to be discharged." This was sined by
Alexander. Warner, W. M Coburn, .Tamo
A. Troutman, John S. Eaton, W. M.
Campbell, an 1 W. H. Ryan.
Another Appeal to the Court.
This ended the effort at compromise
and the two organizations resumed work
as usual. A legislative annronriation bill
will soon lie pushed through the senate
and Populist house under suspension of
the rules and sent to the governor for his
signature. Anticipating this the Repub
lican lawyers are getting ready to take it
to the supreme court, which would bring
the issue lotween the two houses squarely
up for adjudication, and the more con
servative Populists admit that its decision
will bring one bouse or the other to a
stand still. Others, while they admit that
ike court may give the Republicans tem
porary advantage, declare that in the end
the court will find the Populist house to
be bigger than any court.
Which Will Settle the Qnestion.
This however, comes only from extrem
ists who have advocated the unseating pro
cess so as to pet a sufficient majority to re
move Chief Justice Horton and Associate
Justice Johnson by impeachment. For
tunately this element could be counted on
five fir "?ers and nothing of the kind will
ba undertaken. When the court decides
the question t hat will settle it. If the Pop
ulists lo-e, which the lawyers Ksy tht-y
will, ronny w: l he reluctant to give up the
fight, but their sober judgment, will rule,
and they will quietly submit to the Re
publican organization and thereat work of
legislation, tio lunger delayed, will then be
gin. A Combine the "Pops" Don't Like.
Senator Taylor, of Wyandotte connty, a
Populist; Senator O'Brien, of Sedgwick
county, Democrat, and three Democratic
members of the lower house joined the Re
publicans yesterday and participated in
their joint convention for state printer.
The Populists were taken by surprise and
their long faces gave evidence of their con
cern. Although no election followed, the
combine had 84 votes on joint ballots, one
more than enough to elect either a state,
printer or a senator. The appearance of
O'Brien and Taylor in joint convention has
given the Populists much concern.

the testimony in brief being that he lad

the date of the public marriage Harris
gave his wife capsules containing quinine
and morphine for heartache. The court of
appeals has just confirmed the judgment
on this evidence.
