JAMES S. SHERMAN
DIES AT HIS HOME
Hop? was Abandoned in Morning and
All Physician Conld do wan to Re
lieve Muffering. Nominee for Vice
Utlca, N. Y., Oct. 30.?After a long
illness, Vice President James School
craft Sherman died at his home in
this city at 9:42 o'clock tonight of
uremlc poison, caused by Bright's
He bad been sinking since early
morning and It was realized that
death was only a question of hours.
There was a slight relief after 7
o'clock, caused by an apparent Im
provement in the condition of the
kidneys, but it did not prove real and
At 9 o'clock the patient's tempera
ture rose to 106. From that time his
condition rapidly became worse until
Mr. Sherman was unconscious
when the end1'came and had been in
that condition for hours. .
All the members of the immediate
family were witnesses to the final
I scene. In addition to Mrs. Sherman
.there were in the room there three
V,ons, Sherlll,'Richard U? and Thom
as M. Sherman and their respective
wives:- It. M. and Sanford Sherman,
brothers of Mr. Sherman, and Mrs.
I,. B. Moore and Mrs. H. J. Cooking
hnm, sisters of Mr. Sherman.
Soon after Mr. Sherman's ' death
Dr. Fnyotto H. Peck, tho attending
physician issued the following bul
End Was Quiet,
"The vice president died at 9:42 p.
in., without regaining consciousness
for a moment. He was perfectly quiet.
II?; died in the presence of his wife,
her brother and sister, his two broth
ers and his three sons, and their
wives. Ho had been entirely uncon
scious since 7 o'clock, when he had
a period of partial consciousness last-j
ing for about IG minutes. IB; died In
a uraomlc comas,-a result of Bright's
disease, heart disease and arterio
sclerosis.". ; ..* I 1 I V '. < 1' - '>+ ? l ?
No Hope After Morning.
Not since early this morning when
his attending physician made the final
announcement of his inability to do
more for relief than had been done,
was there the least probability of
saving the patient's life, or even of
prolonging it for any considerable
time. It had been the doctor's hope
up to that time that he might so stim
ulate the kidneys as to cause them to
resume their functions, but when he
was compelled to acknowledge failure
in this respect, he surrendered, frank
ly acknowledging that the fight was
lost. Since then he devoted his ef
forts to keeping his patient (inlet and
preventing suffering. His constant
fear was that the uremlc poison In
his patient's system would cause con
vulsions which would result in in
Dr. Peck was with his patient dur
ing the greater part of the day. but
did little for him beyond administer
ing oxygen and giving him an occa
sional hypodermlr Injection of mor
Comatose Ail Day.
Due both to the presence of exces
sive uremlc acid and to the sedatives
employed. Mr. Sherman lay In-a state
of coma throuhgout the greater part
of the day. Only twice did he throw
off the dense stupor which enthralled
him. On neither of these occasions
was he conscious for more than a few
minutes. During one of the Intervals
of consciousness he got out of bed
nnd stood on the floor for a brief
period. His woakness was such, how
ever that he was soon compelled to
lie down, a circumstance which in it
sol f marked the rapid advance of his
malady. Yesterday he walked about
his room a great deal and in his de
lirium Insisted upon going down in
the street. While in his right mind
today he . recognized Mrs. Sherman
and Dr. Peck and spoke to both In
familiar ? and I endearing terms.
The entire Sherman family, consist
ing of Mrs. Shermnn, the three sons
I and :their wives, as ,woll -as'other rela
tives, were prepared for the end.
Dr. Peck attributed the crisis In
the case entirely to the failure of the
kidneys to operate. This condition re
sulted in lining the system with a vir
ulent poison whjch rapidly destroyed
the patient's vitality. The poison
transformed the hlstberto ruddy com
plexion of tho vice presidents facfe,*t?
a dark purple. AU day long'the Sher
man home and * the local newspaper
offices were deluged with**inquiries by
telegraph and telephone^ concerning
tile condition of. tne'vkV president.

New York, Oct. 30.?President Taft

President Sherman at 9:50 o'clock,
as the chief executive. and the secre

The president had just finished n
plea for a greater navy and Comman
der Greaves, of tho navy yard, was
speaking at the time when the news
of Mr. Sherman's death was broken
to the president.
President Taft at Brst made no
comment after hearing the news. He
remained seated quietly, concealing
emotions which he might have had,
until Commander Greaves and Con
gressman Calder had finished their
speeches. He then arose and said:
"My friends: Three years ago you
brate tho launching of the Florida,
and you were honored by the pres
ence of ?he vice ptevident of r\c
United States, Vic? President Sher

"Those who knew him loved him.
Those who knew the services, he ren
dered to his country respected him.
1 venture to ask this assemblage to!
adjourn in honor of this great man's
memory and that no further proceed
ings be taken."
A period of silence followed the
president's unexpected words. The
band came to the relief of the situa
tion by playing "My Country 'Tis of
Thee" and the naval oftlrers and men
filed out qluekly. The president was
escorted to his automobile. Tears
came to his eyes. He went to the
Pennsylvania railroad station in New
York, where he was due to take his
train at 11:30 o'clock for Washington..
Immediately after arriving in New
York President Taft despatched the
following message to .Mrs. Sherman:
"Mrs. Taft and I extend to ypu o tr
