Mr. Pullman, who wee in his 60th
year, had not boon enjo, iing his usaal
good health during the summer.
The extreme heat of last week great

medicaloscience as angint pectoris.
But no serious trouble was anicipat

in the Pullman building daily .q

club. Later in the evening' ie re
marked having a slight pain in the
back. He retired at-his usual early
hour. At 4'66lock members of his
. oW61Eofd were awakened by a dis.
turbance in Mr. Pullman's chamber,
and upon entering found him stand
ing in the contre of the room, dazed
and apparently suffering excruciat
ing pains in the region of his heart.
Rev. R. V. Eaton, who was visiting
Mr. Pullman, called Dr. Frank Bill
ings, the family physician. Restora
tives were applied, but to no pur
pose and at 5 o'clock the millionaire
manufacturer and philanthropist
passed away without speaking and
with scarcely a struggle.
Mrs. Pullman, who with her two
sons-Georgo and Sanger-has been
on an eastern tour, was wired at once
and no funeral arrangements will be
made until she arrives.
George M. Pullman came to Chi.
cago in 1859. He at once took a
roninent place in business circles.
In 1880, owing to the growing de
mands of his manufacturing inter
ets, he put into execution a pet
theory for the establishment of a
"model town" as a home for his car
works and the thousands of employes.
A site was selected on the shores of
Lake Calumet, 12 miles south o.1
Chicago. Mr. Pullman devoted his
personal attention to the erection of
the little city and succeeded even be
yond his own expectations in making
it a model town. Pullman now has
a population of 11,000.
Mr. Pullman's wealth is variously
estimated at from $12,000,000 to $80
000,000. His financial interests
were confined to a few corporations,
-the bulk of the holdings being stock
in the hitllman Palace Car company,
bf which he owned about one.fiftli.
Some stock was also held in Diamond
Match and New York Biscuit. These
securities were somewhat affected by
the news of Mr. Pullman's death,
but the declines were quickly re

IV1o10 TAYLOR ON NEW YORK.
'r a Joke With a Moral at the Expense
Governor Bob Taylor's welcoming
address at Nashville oi New York
day, October 12, is good raading in
the south outside of Tennessee.
Since the expositi<n opened, Gover
nor Taylor has made on an average
about three welcoming addresses a
week. He never repeats himself, and
his resources never fail. Of elo
quence, wit, humor and pathos the
Governor fer.as to have an inexhaus
tible "original package." We give
an extract from the New York day
Mr. President, Ladies and Gen
temen: New York is the Empire
State ot the Union. She is the
great throbbing heart..of.the Repub

life current of the nation flows back
and forth through the arteries of

The city of New York is a per
petual exposition of the triumpbs of

New York is not only great in
wealth, great in population, .great in
all the elements of modern civiliza
tion, but she is great in the knowl
edge of where the green pastures
lie. Her relations with the South
remind me of an old story which has
been of a river fishing. One was
an old darky, the other was a boy.
The boy got a nibble, his foot slip
ped, and he fell headlong in the
surging waters. 'Tlho old darky
hesitated" a moment, and then
plunged in after. the drowning boy.
There was a terrific struggle, but
finally the old man succeeded in
landing his half drowned charge.
A passerby, who witnessed the nceno,
ran up and patted Uncle Rastus on
the back and said: "Old man, that
was a noble deed in you to risk your
life in that way to save the life of
that trifling boy." "Yes, boss, "said
Uncle Rastus, "I was bleegod to save
that nigger, he had all the bait in
his pocket." New York was the old
man, the South is the boy.
iovertholoas we love the old
brother, and we open our hearts and
our bottles to the distinguished lieu
tenant Governor and .overy son of
that proud common-wealth.
* * * * * *
Mr. Ohairman, it is believed by
many of our brethren of the North
that our people here in the South
are not as vigorons as we should be,
that we lack the snap and push
necessary for the quick and perma
nent growth and development of our
country. But they forget that we
can raise three crops of potatoes in
our soil in a single season, that our
cotton grows without much persua
sion, that we can fatten our hogs on
acorns, and pasture our cattle the
year around. They forget that our
persimmon trees yield tons of per
simmons per annum, and that our
'possums hang like sugar plums of
gJory hallelejah from the bending
limbs of the aforesaid and the same.
Tlhey forgot that we can labor half
the time and rest the other half and
live happier aud better than any other
people on the face of the earth.
I think if we could get our New
York friends to see the point and
furnish the money to develop us, we
could soon pay the expenses of tiAO
whole government, feed and clothe
the entire United States, have money
left to throw at the birds, and rest
all the time.
There is one b)ranch of business in
which we are as vigorous as our
northern brethren, and that is poli
tics. Our annual crop of politicians
is equal to the crop of cotton bales,
not in weight, but in nunibers. Now
and then we are blessed with a states
man; but n. .ny are called, but few
are chosen. We produce more ma
