It was on the 17th of September, 1787, thai
the Constitution of the United States in its
original form was 'completed and signed by
the members of the convention, which had
been sittine from the 14th of May in the city
of Philadelphia. On that day, 100 years
after, the nation and the States officially
and with fitting circumstance aud splendor,
eoniuieirorated an event of the first conse
quence in modern history. To Samuel F.

Samuel F. Miller was born in Richmond,
April 5, 1816. His father emigrated from
It ailing. Pa., in ISI2. His mother was a
daughter of parents who removed to Ken
tucky from North Carolina before her
birth. He was an illustration and em
bodiment of the proverbial healthful
ne-s and longevity of studious men who
have no bad habits. The first twelve years
of his life were spent on a farm, and there
he underwent ail the hardships and toil inci
dent to a life of this kind. At an early age he
was sent to an academy in Richmond for a
year or two, and then, by mere accident,
. he cot a chance to study medicine. After
graduating in the Medical Department
of the Transylvania when 22 years
of age, and receiving hi-* diploma, he
1 c.an the practice of his profession. For
e:glit years he as a country practitioner,
aud then he made up his mind to become a
lawyer. He had a wife and two children
b.fore he decided to change his original
occupation. He was more successful in law
"than In medicine, having judged wisely as to
I. is natural aptitudes. Several years after
being admitted to the bar, Miller
removed t.i Keokuk, lowa, where he
took an active part in politics. He
was an enthusiastic admirer of Henry
Clay, and considered him and Alexander
Hamilton the two greatest statesmen Amer
ica has produced. In 186_, Miller was
nominated by President Lincoln to be a
Justice of the Supreme Court. His nomina
tion went over to the Senate at 9 o'clock in
the evening before the final adjournment,
and lie was instantly confirmed by a un
animous vote, without reference to a com
mittee. Within a dozen of years after being
admitted to the bar, this comparatively young
lawyer had reached oneof the highest places
.in his profession. liming his quarter of a
century upon the bench. Justice Miller
probably wrote more opinions on constitu
tional questions than any of his associates,
and throughout the country he stood among
the very highest constitutional lawyers. In
the first case to come before the Supreme
Court, involving the tnirteenth, fourteenth
and fifteenth amendments to the Constitu
tion, he prepared the opinion of tin; court,
and this was the very first authoritative ex
position of th" amendments.
Justice Miller devoted a good deal of time
to the demands of society. X'o. dinner at
the White House, at the houses of Minis
ters or Cabinet officers, was considered com
plete without the popular Justice, and he
was regarded as one of the best of after din
Justice Miller had a ruddy, healthful
<■ untenant"-", and was wonderfully well
prt-seivcd. His step was light and springy,
. his eyesight only slightly impaired, and
every faculty was as alert as when he was
i.i the prime of life. He was a fine
pedestrian, and on every fair day during
the sittings of the court he walked to the
Capitol and back, a distance of nearly six
miles. The Justice was about 6 feet 9or 10
..inches in height ami had a strong form, fan:

Grant's First Secretary ef War Fcand Dead
in His r.ocm at Washing-ten.
Wasiiin'.to.v, Oct. 13.— Ex-Secretary of
War W. W. Belknap was found dead this
morning in a room adjoining his office, 1420
New York avenue.
General William' W. Belknap was a son of
Brigndii r-Gencral William G. Belknap, "who
entered the United States Army as a Third
Lieutenant in 1813, laving served during the
War of 1812, and subsequently served in the
Florida War and the war with Mexico. lie
died in 1851. The late Secretary was born
in Newbury, N. V., in 1829, and was made
a Major of Volunteers in 1881. He was
present duriig several severely ' contested
battles, notably Shiloh and the battles
_■_%»__. fought in that neighborhood. He
was made Secretary of War by General
Grant in 1609, and . served iv that capacity
until the spring of 1876, when, on the second
day of March, 1870, Hon. Heister Clynier,
The Morning Call.
Chairman of the Committee on Expenditures
In the War Department, submitted to the
House of liepresentatives a series of resolu
tions looking forward to the impeachment
of General Belknap for the alleged crime of
selling post-traderships. The trial lasted
until August first of the same year, when a
vote was taken upon sustaining or rejecting
the charges, resulting in a vote of 36 to sus
tain and 25 to reject The requisite two
thirds uot having voted in the affirmative, a
verdict of acquittal was ordered to be ent
ered, which was done.
It is believed death occurred between 1
o'clock Saturday night and 9 o'clock Sunday
morning. From John W. Cameron, General
Belknap's business associate, it was learned
that for some time it had been the General's
habit to meet a few friends at the home of
Dr. Hill, who lives less than a square away,
for social came of cards. Saturday night
he was with them as usual, and remained
until nearly midnight, when he returned to
his apartments in the Evans Building, at
1120 .New York avenue, and presumably re
tired immediately. lie never again was
* About 8:30 o'clock this morning Cameron
arrived at the building and proceeded to the
second floor, where their offices and the
General's apartments were located. The
servant girl, who Keeps the rooms, rapped at
the door and inquired if General Belknap
was out of the city, saying she had several
times since Sunday morning tried the doors,
but found them locked. The doors were
then forced open and the body was found
lying partly uncovered on the bed. The
left arm was bent rigidly toward the head,
and the left I. aud clenched as though death
came while he was in a convulsion. -
The Ded-clotbes were somewhat disar
ranged, as if there had been a slight strug
gle fur breath. A physician was summoned,
and after making ati examination expressed
the opinion that death resulted from a stroke
of apoplexy. The Coroner soon afterward
arrived ami took the body in charge.
An autopsy disclosed the fact that the im
mediate cause of death was inflammation
of the inner lining of the heart.
Mrs. Belknap, who was in New York, was
summoned by telegraph; also the General's
son ll ii_li from Chicago. For some years
Belknap has been almost a constant sufferer
from gout. In February lie had so severe
an attack that he hardly left his room for
three months or more. During that time he
lost in flesh between thirty and forty
pounds. Since then he has been In poor
Health. In consequence of his long ness
his business suffered, and this worried him
As soon as the death of Belknap was
known at the War Department Acting Sec
retary Grant ordered the flag on the build
ing at half-mast in honor of the ex-Secre
tary and gave directions that the building be
draped in black for the customary period.
He also communicated with the family of
the deceased to offer what assistance they
m.ght desire from the department in the ar
rangements for the funeral. As soon as the
funeral arrangements are completed an or
der will be issued closing the department on
the day of the funeral. An order announc
ing tlie death to the army, with instructions
as to the proper observance of the day of
his funeral, will probably be issued.
Mrs. Belknap has decided that the General
shall be buried at Arlington Cemetery, and
the funeral will probably take place Thurs
day. ; _: J-'"

AN EXTRA SESSION.
Congress Will Convene Soon
The Hoie Folly Decided Upon by the
President and His Advisers,
The Federal Election Bill and the Reappor
tionment of the House Given as
the Reason for the Step.
' -. '. . -*
Special to The Morning Call,
Washington, Oct 13.— 1t is now believed
that Congress will be convened in extra
session about tho last of this month. Sev
eral days ago correspondents of New York
papers telegraphed that the matter had
already been settled, but before the print
er's ink on the papers had dried Secretary
Ilallord dissipated this belief by a dispatch
from Otumwa: President Harrison will issue
his proclamation in advance of the elections.
It will not be policy to withhold it until
after they have occurred.
As neatly as can be estimated from exist
ing probabilities, the extra session will be
convened on November 11th or 12th, being
the week following the Congressional elec
tions. This will enable any member of Con
gress, no mutter how remote his district
may be, to reach Washington In time, by
leaving alter the polls close on November
4th. y ■ ;"y
After the adjournment of Congress a num
ber of Senators, including Messrs. lliscock,
Sherman and Haw ley, discussed the sub
ject of an extra session with the President.
They found that he favored the idea, and
more than half of the Republican Senators
who were consulted wero found to be anx
ious to have Congress reconvened before
the regular time in December. Subse
quently, the matter was discussed at the
Cabinet meetings, and a mijority of the
I 'resident's official advisers concurred in the
desirabiii'y of an extra session in Novem
It was in anticipation of this that the Sen
ate continued its session clerks through the
recess, though the fact was not hinted at
when the resolution was put through. When
the President left for the West his inten
tions were to call au extra session, the prop
osition having the indorsement of the party
managers in Congress, as well as a majority
of his Cabinet. Since his departure there
has been such a general acceptance of the
proposition that ho will have no reason to
hesitate ou his return.
The main purpose of the extra session, of
course, is the passage of the Election Bill,
but there is another matter of equal Im
portance namely, the Congressional appor
tionment. This cannot be railroaded throuch
the House because it affects personally
every member in it, and the special order
of business, with the previous question at
tachment, could not be operated with any
success. Consequently the reapportionment
will occupy a large portion of the time alter
. Not one feature of the proposed bill has
yet been dei i led upon. Representative
Bunnell introduced a bill which was sup
• posed to represent the views of the Repub
lican managers as to the relative re presenta
tion lo be giver* each State, but that bill
was based upon estimates now conceded to
be iuecurect. Tno Bunnell bill was con
structed Upon the basis of a population of
nearly 66,000,000. Mure recent ami accurate
estimates Indicate that the official count of
the Census Office will not reach 0.,000,000.
Tbis difference will compel a complete re
vision of the Bunnell bill. The necessity
for an early start on the Apportionment
Bill is apparent, and this is the most prac
tical argument advanced by those who lavor
an extra session." . y■ ■

Eight Dajs' Tour.
Special to The Morning Call,
Sidney (Ohio), Oct. 13.— The special train
bearing President Harrison and party
pulled out of Indianapolis on its return to
Washington at C o'clock this morning. An
immense crowd assembled at Anderson, Ind.
The President made a brief speech, refer
ring to the rapid development of this
region since tlie discovery and utilization of
natural gas, and its general advancement.
He spoke of the presence of the school chil
dren and took occasion to speak a good
word for the public schools. He counseled
putting brawny men in the factories, but
sending the children to school. 11l pointed
out the advantages of learning, and told the
boys there was nothing to which they might
not aspire iv this country.
AN" ERA OF PROSPERITY.
When the city of Muncie was reached an
immense assembly was congregated. The
President spoke at some length in regard to.
the grow of the country since natural gas
was discovered, and said: "The sunlight will
not more surely shed its beams on us this
morning than this great tide of prosperity
Which has set in through this eas-belt in In
diana shall go on increasing until all the
cities and towns within its radius are full of
business men and humming machinery.
What does all this mean? It means em
ployment for men; it means happy and
comfortable homes for increasing popula
tion ; it means an increased home market
for the products of your farm ; it means the
farmer will have the choice ol crops and will
have consumers for the perishable products
of his farm at his very door. I do not for
get that your giod country sent to the war
of the Union in the gallant regiments that
went from tliis gallant State a multitude of
brave men to stand by the flag. Now let that
love of the flag be still uppermost in your
"Nothing has pleased n.e more as I passed
through some of our Western States than to
see that the school children everywhere had
the starry flag in their hands. Let it be so
here and everywhere. Let them learn to
love it— to know its beauties— order that
when the time of peril comes they may be
ready to defend it. [Prolonged applause.]
" It is essential to the jwistencfl-f a coun
try like ours that thought speech should
be free, and free thought means differing
thoughts. It means that in an individual
exercise of the faculties God has given us
we will reach a public question through dif
ferent conclusions; but. as 1 remarked the
other day to another audience, as long as our
differences. Stand, like j the opposing but
tresses of a great arch, confronting each
other, but united above in love for the Con
stitution and the Hag, we have nothing to
fear." He spoke to the children assembled
and touched upon the value of the public
schools, and counseled love for the flag.

THK TWO SnKIaMAXS.
Canton- (Ohio), Oct. 13— At Mansfield
another large crowd was assembled, and the
President spoke briefly, thanking them for
their kindness, and saying he was glad to
be permitted to stop at the home of their
distinguished Senator and his friend, Sher
man. "1 am sure," said he, "however you
may differ from him in political opinions,
the people of Mansfield and of Ohio are proud
of the eminence which he has attained in the
counsels of the nation and the distinguished
service he lias been able to render his coun

IN" m'kixley's district.
At Wooster the students of the university
joined their college cry to the cheers of the
citizens. This was the first point in Con
pressniiui McKinley's district at which the
'resident spoke. The .'resident spoke but
briefly, as the time was short and many other
stops remained to be made. A large crowd
assembled atOrrville, but there was no time
for a speech. At Massilon there was a great
crowd of Graud Army veterans, school chil
dren and citizens headed by the Mayor. As
the train entered the city the operatives
from the manufacturing establishments near
the road gathered at the train and cheered
the President as he sped by.
NO REASON FOR DISCONTENT.
In his address, referi ing to the industries
of* the city, the President said: "It is well
that your interchanging industries and pur
suits lean upon and help each other, in
creasing and making possible the great
prosperity which you enjoy. I hope it is
true that everybody is getting a fair return
for his labor. We cannot affonl in America
to have any discontented classes, and if fair
wages are paid for fair work we will have
none. lam not one of those who believe
that cheapness is for the highest good.
[Cheers.] I unknot one of those who believe
it can lie to my interest or to yours to purchase
in the market anything below the price
that pays to the men who make it fair liv
ing wages. [Great applause]. We should all
'live and let live' in this country. Our
strength, our. promise for the future, our
security for social happiness is the content
ment of the great masses who toil. Thus
in kindly intercourse and relationship be
tween capital and labor, each having its ap
propriate increase, we shall find the highest
good, the capitalist and employer every

human rights, kindly consideration with

KECEPTIOX AT CANTON.
When tho train rolled Into Canton over
EOOO people were assembled to greet the
Chief Executive. The G. A. R.and other
organizations were out in full force. The
President spoke in response to an address ot
welcome, saying, in part: "I am glad to be

associated in- Congressional duties for a
number of years and who in all personal re-'
latinos with me. as I believe with you, his

which we all agree, whatever our vi ;ws may
be on tariff or finance, and that is that •
there is no prosperity, in tho wide, liberal

its benefits every dsserving and industrious
man and woman in the community. [Ap

and we should all be free from anything
that detracts from our liberties and inde
pendence or that retards the development -
of our intelligence, morality and patriotism.
THE THIRTEENTH SPEECn.
Pittsburg, Oct 13.— Alliance another
large crowd greeted the Presidential party,
and the President made his thirteenth speech '
of the day. He told the people he had be
gun talking before breakfast and had scarcely
had time lor lunch, but so loug as his voice •
was left he could not fail to recognize
these hearty greetings. " This respect is no! '
withheld by political opponents and this
pleasant to know that in all things that af- ■
feet the integrity and honor and perpetuity
of our Government we rise above party ties
and considerations. There is not much a
President can do to shape the policy of th.
Government; for, after all, the policy of our
laws is directed by Congress. The President '
may veto, hut lie cannot frame a bill.
Therefore," said the President, "it is ol
great interest to you and to all our people
that yon should choose such men to repre

mote those policies to which you have given
your intelligent adhesion."

THE MECHANICS' FAIR.
A Fine ' Exhibit by the Eweli X.
The third week of the Mechanics' Fair in
the Pavilion opened yesterday with a good
attendance in the afternoon, and last
evening there was an unusual attendance
for a Monday night. This testifies to the
popularity of the place as a resort for those
who wish to see the interesting exhibits,
the beauties of the art gallery aud to listen
to the sweet strains of the baud.
. First Principles.
While doing the rounds of the fair last
evening the attention of our reporter was
attracted to the exhibit of the Swell's XL
Dairy Bottled Milk Company, and numerous
queries put to the genial prince of milkmen
elicited much information that may be of
interest to the many readers of The Cam..
"Firstly, Mr. Ewell, what has this ice
machine got to do with the milk business?"
--" Why, sir, this is only a fac-siinile of oue
we have at the ranch to cool our milk, which,
you know, is bottled warm from the cow,
and in twenty minutes is reduced to a tem
perature of 40 degrees. This little machine
can produce 200 pounds of ice per day, the
one at the ranch 10,000 pounds or its equiva
lent in cold storage. And this refrigerator?
WelL that is an invention of my own, and
which I am having duplicated at our depot,"
at the comer of Folsom and Twenty-first
streets, to keep milk as cool as it is deliv
ered from the ranch, by another ice machine
of less power, but of the same patent And
these books? Well, 'One Thousand and
One' is the second edition of a previous
one of 40,000 which we distributed and found
we hadn't enough to go around. This is to
be followed by a third, if necessary. .And.
'Baby's Strike'? Well, all on the same
Idea. ' Baby's Strike,' as you can see, is to
let parents know how important it is to give
their children pure milk. In fact all this
display is to demonstrate to the public that
the Bweil's XL Dairy Bottled Milk Com
pany produce the purest ami best milk in the
world. This cannot be controverted, for
don't we prove It by the only test? That is,
the people try it and see for themselves. By
the way. have some," and as the scribe dis
posed of a quart bottle he had to admit that
Ewell's boast was not overdrawn, and as
the delicious fluid permeated our being our
only thought was as indited above, .first
principles, purity and honesty, are all em
bodiedjin Kwell's system of 'producing and
serving milk. We can ouly say, as Ewell
explained, try it.* _*?- »?■-'<- ■>. > . r
