PARIS. Oct. IS. Field Marshal Maurice
de MacMahon, duke of Maite-nta, ex-president
of the Kreuch republic, and one cf
the most renowned soldiers of the empire,
died yesterday. The immediate cause fd
death was hi grippe. IWn on .Tuly 13,
liis, MacMahon was in his Si'.tli year. His
dath has litn-n expected, lu May last he
was attacked by la grippe, and he had
never recovered from the effects of it, He
had beeu slowly but- steadily failins since
the In-ginning of autninn. The death of
the old warrior and st itestnnn has spread
genuine sorrow lu-oughout Trance, and
will doubtless subdue somewhat the ex
travagance of the demonstration caused
by the visit of the Russian fleet to Toulon.
The fetes and receptions will lie simplified,
and the gala attire of Paris may give way
to one of mourning. The government has
ordered the fl.u;s on all departments to bo
lowered at half-mast.
MacMahou's Military Career.
MacMahon's career had been practically
the history of Prance during the past
tilxtyyeuis. In 1KI0, at. the age of 32, be
was baptized with fire in Algiers Hiid I
ever iuce his name and personality had
Wen intimately ass,)C'aled with the an
nals of the French army. For more than
two lie-Herat urns jie gloried in the tri
umphs and sorrowed with the sorrow of
the tricolor. Pos-essing ull the enthu-i-asm
and love of advent lira of a medieval
knight errant, and gifted with a moral
and physical courage that made him a
herooti the battli lield. he also had the
trained mind of thestrat-gist at.d the keen,
observant eye of a man born to command.
He won the distinction of mnrsh.-tl of
France by his conduct on the field of Ma
genta, where he turned what threatened
to become a disastroiia defeat into a vic
tory over t'.e Aii-.tri.iif.

In reward of his wisdom am! valor on
this occasion he received tlie title Due de
Magenta. This title he never emploved.
He preferred to called Marshal Mac
Mahon. On MacMubon's retina from
Africa in ls.: he as-isted at the sieue of
L-oustantine, and though wounded during '
the conflict by a splinter from a shell he'
nevertheless mounted the breach and was'
the first to plant the French flag upon the '
ramparts. Rising, grade by grade, in '
Africa as well as iu France, he was norn-1

been made general of division in !,-: he '

Washington, Oct. 18. The oratorical
gale that blew all day in the senate Dad a
"snap" to it seldom observed in this
chamber of decorum and courtesy.
Dolph objected to the journal's statement
that Kyle and others were absent at roll
call Monday when it was well known that
they were in the chamber at the time, and
when in fact it was their own side which
hail demanded tiie roil call. I),!ph sa:d
he was "..ireil" of it ail and Moigan sug
gested that Dolph sit down, as it-would
be a relief to tiie seuate. D.dph said it
was the duty of ll e chair to order names
put in the record in such cases, and Hill
agreed wit h him. Morgau was very snap
pish. He said Hill had given "Ciar"

quorum in the New York senate.

detkatice to the majority. It should never
pass a cloture resolution, he said. He
would die at his p-.t l;rt. He referred to
Hill and Lodge as the junior" senators
from their respective states. In opposition
to cloture Voig.m was joined by Liray of
Delaware, who probably would oppose any
practical cloture, tn-longing as he does to
coterie of senators w hich believes in the
"fullest ' debate.
Hill Goe for the Alabaiiiiaii.
-Morgan was very caustic and very ag
gravating i i his defiance, but the fur real
ly did not tly until Hill of New York cot
up. He said he did not expect his ideas ot
clot ure to meet the approval of the sena
tors from Alabama and Delaware. He con
iiuueii, ironically, oi course there were
no po'iticiat.s in Alabama. They were
all statesmen down in that country.

of that senator to reflect on the Democrat

tions there were as honest as elections in

fcposen of his lifelong devotion to the

Meet the United German.
At the outbreak of the Franco-German
war great hopes were placed on MacMahon.
He received command of the army of the
south and moved toward the frontier. On
Aug. 6, 1870, he encountered the German
forces at Worth, and was forced to retreat
In disorder to Nancy, where he proceeded
to reorganize the scattered forces, retreat
ing from different points on the frontier,
with the view of defending the capital.'
While so engaged he was ordered to pro
ceed to the relief of Metz. and thus retard
the advance of the victorious Germans on
Paris. He entered promptly on the disas
trous march which ended at Sedan, where
he was dangerously wounded early iu the
uoy uy a sueii.
Lnd of HI I'libllc Life.
His defeat, although it affected him
greatly, did not end his career, for after
hi capture by the Germans, who treated
him with great consideration and released
him as soon as his wound was healed, he
returned to France and ably assisted Pres
ident Thiers in reorganizing the i'rench
army, and in J8T3 succeeded Thiers in the
presidency of the French republic, which
he held through a stormy period, ending
with his own resignation in 18T.
Where He Got III Fighting- II loud.
MacMahon was, of course, an Irishman
by descent. His great grandfather, w ho
traced his lineage to Brian Boru, was the
last of the race to rule over an ancestral
demesne in that country. Having taken
eides with the Stuarts he was stripped of
his property, a price was set upon his
bead by the English government and he
roamed an outlaw on the hills during
several mouths, at the expiration of which
he succeeded in escaping to France. He
at once became a medical student in
Paris, and after a few years secured a
diploma and practiced a a ddctor.
Left a Title and a Chateau.
. He subsequently married the only
daughter of n French marquis, who, dying
without male issue, left the Irishman his

money was lost in transit between this
city and New Orlet.ns and special repre

SHERMAN MAKES AN APPEAL.
Me ISegs tlie Denifcral to "Flop To
gether" on Hie Oilestiou,
Sherman l ad no doubt the journal was
made up right according to the rules of
the senate.. And those rules were intend
ed to expedite business in an orderly man
ner. Hut they were used as an instrument
of obstruction by the minority and should
be changed. The tactics of the minority
in tins case were revolutionary. They
weut far beyond anything he had ever
seen in the senate. Hefore the force bill
he had never known a deadlock to occupy
more man twelve Hours, because the m
nority had acted in the spirit of the rules
which was the spirit of good order.
II the senate could not legislate under
its rules it must follow the example
of other legislative bodies, in none of
which were such scenes as had taken
place here possible. Every national body
in the world, except this had effective
means of closing the debate. "If this con
tinues, :sherman added, "the senate will
be a marked body. It will no longer com-
manu tne respect or an intelligent and
active people. We are men of action in
the United States aud the senate ought
not to be a great log that weighs down
and obstructs legislation.
"We must, therefore, resort to some
way in which the power of the majority
may be exercised. The responsibility rests
on the other side of the chain ber. Tbey
say they cannot agree. They must agree,
or else surrender their political power.
Sherman delivered these sentences with
gi eat force and animation. If the senate
of the United States as it is now organ
ized cannot- make laws without this pro
longed del ate; if It is uneble to meet to
gether aud formulate some proposition,
the people of the United States will take
the senate at its worth there is not a
doubt about that.
"We ask our brother senators on the
other side to meet together and consult
with each other. If they do not like the pres
ident's plans let them give us some other,
in God's name, and let us settle this im
portant question. If we can agree with
Vou we will do so. If we cannot agree
with you we will not follow your example,
but will give you a manly 'No.' "
