month ago and had been visiting at the
residence of V. H. Virgin, in Vinevill , a
suburb of this city. Yesterday afternoon
at about 3 o'clock Justice Lamar took his
overcoat, intending to. go to the city, but
was met at the door by a friend, Dr. Llew
ellyn, with whom be returned to the sit
ting room. At that time and during all
the afternoon he was in good spirits, and
at dinner at C:30 in the evening he seemed
to have a good appetite. Dr. Llewellyn
left the house about 8 o'clock and a few
minutes later the justice was seized with
violent pains in the heart and died at the

Macon and was admitted to the bar in
1S47. In 149 he returned to Oxford, Miss.,
and for a year held a professorship in the

fayette, being shortly afterward elected to
congress as a Democrat.
Went With the "Lost Canse."
He served from lv7 until lijO, when he
resigned to take a seat in the secession con
vention of his native state. He cast his
fortunes with the "lost cause" and left the
army with the rank of colonel, after having
shared in ninny engagements. He was

Mr. Lamar vns perhaps as prominent a
figure as any tjhat has occupied a seat on
the bench of j that august body, but for
months back Be had been almost, too ill to
take more tha$i a perfunctory interest in
the proceeding. His health had been fail

for the south kbont a month ago. He had
then been foiysome time confined to his
house rn that city and was unable to at
tend all the sessions of the supreme court.
His Death Not a Great Surprise.
Just before his departure from Wash
fugton, however. Judge Lamar was
thought to have considerably improved.
He took advantage of an improved feeling
and the day before his departure from the
national capital he made -calk on two or
three friends jfthere. It was not without
dismal forbodjngs that his friends lea reed
after his departure that he had been com
pelled to take one or two jntervals of rest
before arriving here and his death will not
be in every particular a great surprise.

' Was a Great Pulpit Orator.
. Sct. Dr. rhilliDS Brooks, rector
Trinity Episcopal church, Boston, and
since IK 1 bishop of Mapsachusetts, has long
been known as ilie best pu!pit orator of the
low church Episcopalians in America. He
was a strong character and has wielded a
powerful influence for good, especially
among the young people ot New England,
Like all men of intense convictions, both
his admirers and his opponents have been
warm and outspoken. On the occasion of
his nomination for the bishopric of Massa
chusetts, the admiration of Dr. Brooks'
friends was voiced before the diocesan con
vention by Hev. Dr. Alexander Hamilton
Kev. Br. Vinton l-'ulogy.
He said: '"While there are many emi
nent men w ho could discharge well the
office of bishop there is one, and one only,
1 fully believe, who is pre-eiuinently fitted
to discharge these functions. There is a
signal, a splendid opportunity before us, if
we are brave enough, self-sacrificing
enough, and spiritually minded enough to
take advantage of it The man I will pre
sent to yon needs no eulogy from me. He
is a Massachusetts son. You know him.
Multitudes delight to honor, to praise, to
extol him for the power which he has given
them, the quickening of their spiritual
life and the triumph of the faith. But
transcendent as are these qmiliites there
re others which are known now better
to those who -have the honor of his inti
macy sweet, noble, lovely characteristics,
which will shine forth best in a position of
a father in God."
tui'h Opposition to His Kleclioll.
At this convention Dr. Brooks was elec
ted to the bishopiic on the first ballot.
But to complete the election the approval
of a majority of all the bishops in the
United States and of the standing commit
tees of the various iliocscs was necessary.
In this quarter there arose a strong opposi
tion on account of the pronounced low
church proclivities of the newly appointed
bishop, and it w as only after a rather bitter
war of words that the confirmation finally
From Hirth to Ordination.
Phillips Brooks was born Doc. 13, 1K?5,
in the same city in which he died and to
which he gave so large a part of his fifty
seven years of active and useful life. He
tame from an o!d New England family,
being one of six brothers, four of whom
became honored clergymen of the Episco
pal church. His parents were members of
St. Paul's church, Boston, and their chil
dren were reaeed under the very healthy
influence of Dr. Alexander II. Yintou.then
rector of St. Paul's. He received his early
education at Phillips academy, Exeter, X.
H., founded by an ancestor of his; pursued
his studies at the Boston Latin school, en
tered Harvard, was graduated there in
1NV, and studied theology at the seminary
in Alexandria, Ya.. after which, lieing or
dained in lfCiO, he was called to the Church
of the Advent in Philadelphia as assistant
to his old pastor. Dr. Yinton.
His t rn-ujo A;iiiiKt Slavery.
In 1W.2 he bt est me rector of the Church
of the Holy Trinity. Philadelphia. Very
young for so onerous a charge, he sprang
at once to the position of a famous preach
er and crowded congregations listened
withdelight to the eloquent simplicity with
w hich he p:vsoi;tcd the truths of the gos
pel, ll was t'i.ere, in the first months of
the war. that he preached with magic force
against slavery, ami his eloquence was
widely recognized as one of the potent fac
tors in fanning the flame of patriotism
which sent Pennsylvania's sons in thous
ands to the front t" fight for the Union.
After a most successful pastorate of seven
years in Holy Trinity he accented, in 1S70,
the rectorship of Trinity church in Boston.
His Church Cost IM.OOO.OOO.
The present edifice of Trinity church,
noted for its unique architecture and fine
interior decorations, was built for him at a
cost of over Sl.OoO.OHO. Men of all classes
and creeds gathered there Sunday after
Sunday,nllim the great edifice to overflow
ing. The theology of this broad minded
man recognized value in every phase of
Christian activity if it, but showed itself
earnest and helpful. The same "liberality
of thought"' which made him willing and
glad to preach the word of the master in
churches and halls of the other denomina
tions was displayed in his own pulpit, and
it was this that drew so many strangers to
his sanctuary. He was "in touch w ith the
thought of the age in which he lived," and
this, added to his broad sympathy with
every Christian effort, made him more
popular than any other Episcopal minister
in the country.
A Terror to Reporters.
Rev. Dr. Brooks was known as one of the
most rapid speakers in the country. As
the shorthand reporters expressed it, he
was lightning, and for most of that nimble-fingered
gnild the assignment to "take"
Phillips Brooks was a nightmare of which
they stood in constant dread. Dr. Brooks
published a number of books in the course
of his busy career, among which were

the Yale divinity school; "Sermons," "The
Influence of Jesus," Bohlen lectures deliv

THE WHISKY TRUST DISSOLVED.
Greenhnt Savs the Stork Is Held by Those
Who Can Carry It.
XEW York, Jan. '..'4. Speaking of the
alleged dissolution of the whisky trust J.
B. Greenhut, president of the Distilling
and Cattle Feeding company, said last
night: "The rumor that we are going to
issue new s'ock is absolutely false. No
such issue has ever liecn conttmplated.
It is absurd. We could not do it without
authority from the ' stockholders. That
would necessitate calling a meeting and no
such meeting has been failed.' That the
pool has been dissolved, though, is a fact,
'This action was decided upon at a meeting
C anoe of the Plssolution.
"As a result all the stock left in the pool
at that time has either been sold or is now
in the hands of members who are able to
carry it and who would not think of selling .
it at the present ridiculously low price."
Concerning the "causes that led to this
sudden change of policy among those in
the pool, Mr (ireeuhut had little to say.
"There was dissatisfaction," was the way
he put it, and he refused to be more expli
cit. He said: "I think that the pool has
done more injury than benefit to the stock
and that it would without any manipula-
tion have reached as high a figure as it hnn
at any time (iuring the past few months."

Nebraska Likely to Lose Her Deposit In
the Capitol National Bank.
Lincoln, Xeb., Jan. 4. The failure of
the Capitol National bank seems to have
been most complete. Bank Examiner
Griffith and his assistants are making a
searching examination, but refuse to talk.
Only a few weeks ago C. W. Moshen, presi
dent of the bank, swore that he was worth
$.00,000 over and above his liabilities, and
B. C. Outcalt swore that he was worth
200.000 over and above hia liabilities.
Their oaths to this effect were taken when
they went on State Treasurer Bartley's
bonds. The same oaths were taken last
week when they presented their bond as a
bank of deposit for state funds.
Status of the State Deposit.
Leading lawyers claim that Treasurer
Bartley and his bondsmen are not liable
for any state funds that may be lost by the
failure, as the bank's bond was approved
by the state banking board, thus relieving
them. Retiring Treasurer Hill had fcXlS,
000 of state funds in the bank which he
turned over to his successor. Treasurer
Bartley reduced this to J2I2.0OC by small
