, Utica, 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 .
uremic poison caused by Bright's dis
ease. He had been sinking ever since
early morning, and it was realized
that death was a question of only a
few hours. There was slight relief
shortly after 7 o'clock, caused by an
apparent improvement- in the condi
tion of the kidneys, but it did no:
prove real or lasting, and at best gave
only temporary hope. At 9 o'clock the
temperature rose to 10S. From that
time the condition rapidly passed froia
bad to worse "until the end. He was
unconscious when the end came and
had been in that condition for hours
with but slight change. , . ',.'
t Members of Family at Deathbed.
All the members of the immediate
family were witnesses to ' the' final
scene. In addition to Mrs. Sherman
there were three sons, Sherrlll, Rich
ard and Thomas M. Sherman, and
their respective wives; R. W. and i
Hanford Sherman, brothers of Mr.
Sherman, and Mrs. L. B. Moore and
Mrs. H. J.. Cooklnham,- sisters of Mr.
Sherman. . - . y
Soon after Mr. Sherman's oeath,
Dr. Fayette H. Peck, the- attending
physician, who was -present when
death cam, issued the following
Died Quietly and Peacefully; -
"The vice president died at 9.42 p.
in. without, regaining consciousness for
a moment. He was perfectly quiet
He died in the presence of his wife,
her brother and sister, his two broth
ers and his thiee sons and their wives.
Ha had bi en entirely unconscious since
7 o'clock, when he had a period of
partial consciousness lasting for about
15 minutes. He died in a uremia.coma
as a result of Bright's disease, heart
disaase and arteric sclerosis.'' i
Mr. Shsrman Bears Up Bravely.
Mrs. Sherman bore up bravely under
the shock of her husband's death, as
did the other members of the family.
Although it was said at the house that
the hopelessness of Mr. Sherman h
fight against death had been realized
since .Friday, the blow was neverthe
less a crushtng one.
A few of the intimate friends of the
family called tonight toexpress their
sympathy, among them Dr. A. LL
Holden, pastor of Cnrtst Reformed
church, where the family worships.
Funeral Arrangements Deferred.
Soon after the vice president's
death it was announced that the mem
bers of the family wished to "be left
undisturbed tonight and that no ar
rangements for the funeral would be
made before tomorrow.
The Sherman residence is located on
Genesee street, one of the city's fash
ionable thoroughfares, and the arrival
nd departure of an occastonal auto
mobile was the only indication that

with lightning rapidity. Universal
orrow wag expressed -and immediate
steps were taken for proper recogni

Sherman was regarded a the first

growing out of politic died with him.
The mayor gave out a sta.tmrot Mc

bells tolled out the doleful news to a
public to which it was not new. (
Political Meeting Cancelled.
Not only did the republican organ
ization take proper recognizance of the
event, but the progressives announced
their. - intention of cancelling all meet
ings until after the vice presidents
funeral..-; Governor Johnson, who (
long as Mr. Sherman lived was his
rival for vice presidential honors, was
to have spc-ken here tomorrow' night
in behalf ot the progressive ticket, but
his address, like all other events o
the kind, has been deferred.
The democrats also signified their
intention of removing a Wilson and
Marshall banner which had been fiunpr
across one of the city streets and of
suspending all political activity until
after the funeral. ,
Mayor Baker's Tribute
In ihe course of his tribute.
Baker, said: , .
'Mr. Sherman hay long been fden-
tified with . the business interests of
.'t - :
Utica. He was ever alert In taking
advantages for the city. His home life
was beautiful. It was a model for all
American families. He found the
greatest pleasure when surrounded by
those who loved him as a husband and
father, and it Is there that his menial
presence will be missed. Stricken as
he was with an illness which re
quired : constant watchfulness, Mr.
Sherman bore it with a fortitude
which exemplified the strong charac
teristics ot the man."
Flags Ordered at Half Mast
The mayor ordered that the flags on
all city buildings should be placed' at
half mast and suggested that a simi
lar course be followed with all other
flags In Utica.
Failure of Kidneys to Work.
Dr. Peck attributes the crisis in the
case entirely to the failure of the kid
neys to operate. This condition has
resulted In filling the system with a
virulent poison which is rapidly de
stroying the patient's vitality. The
poison caused considerable twitching
in tne muscles and transformed the
hitherto ruddy complexion of the vice
presidents face into a dark purple.
Decline Dates from Notification Cere-
Mr. Sherman's rapid decline In
health dates from August 21 when he
was formally notified of his nomina
tion as vice president according I to
Dr. Peck. He was warned that the
exertion Incident to the ceremonies
might have an ill effect, but he in
sisted that the programme as ar
inged be carried out. -;
"You may know all about medifcine."
Mr. Sherman told his physician when
he urged him to arrange for a brief
and informal notification, "but you
don't know about politics."
8pok for Over an Hour.
"It was against my advice." said
Dr. Peak tonight, "that Mr. Sherman
participated in the formalities of the
notification ceremonies. I suggested
it would be better for Lim to receive
the committee In the parlor of his
home, tell them briefly that while he
did not want a renominatlon he would
accept in a spirit of loyalty, and let

Republican National Committee Will
Moot on Nov, 12.
New York, Oct 31. Chairman Hilles
of the republican national committee
shortly before 1 o'clock this morning
announced that he had called a meet
ing -of the national committee for Nov -12
in Chicago to select a successor to
the late James S. Sherman as the re
publican candidate for vice president
- Mr. Hilles made the following state
ment: ' ,
"The national convention which mot
in Chicago in June delegate to.
national .commmee power io nu, va ,
canciea on the national ticket. The
death of Mr. Sherman, candidate bf the
republican party for vice president at
the coming election, makes it incum
bent upon the national- committee to
nominate a candidate in his place. The
nomination, however, . cannot possibly
be made prior to the election next
Tuesday. Such a nomination can
properly be made only aften due and
reasonable notice to all the members
of the committee. Such notice can
not be given in less th'an six days. It
is, therefore, manifestly impossible to
hold euch a meeting prior to the elec
tion. Meantime no difficulty or incon
venience arises to the voters at the
election next Tuesday, . because the
votes to be cast then are for electors
and not candidates for either presi-,
dent or vice president and the death
of Mr. Sherman, therefore, does not
affect the validity of the election ol

TAFT IN TEARS.
Broke Down After Announcing Sher
man' Death to Naval Employe.
New York, Oct SO. President 'Taft
was informed of the death of Vice
President Sherman at 9.60 o'clock as
the chief executive and his secretary
of the navy were seated as guests of
honor at a dinner to them by em
ployes of the Brooklyn navy yard at
the Thirteenth resfiment armory in
celebration of the successful launching
of the battleship New York today. The
president had just finished a plea for
a greater navy, and Commander
Greaves of the navy yard was speak
ing at the time when the news of Mr.
Sherman's death was broken to the
president President Taft at first
made no comment after hearing the
news. He remained seated quietly,
concealing emotions which he might
rhave had, until Commander Greaves
and Congressman Calder had finished
their speeches. He then rose and
"My Friends: Three years ago you

Those who knew the services he ren

venture to ask that this assemblage

that no further proceedings 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, "Pis of
Thee," and the naval officers and men
filed out quietly. The president was
escorted to his automobile. Teas
came to his eyes. He was lost sight

Ovation of 42 Minute.
For 42 minutes after bis entrance
into crowded Madison Square Garden
Colonel Roosevelt stood at the edge of
the high-perched speakers' platform,
unable to make himself heard above
the din of cheers, songs and band
music. His gestures to the crowd for
silence served only to Intensify the
noises; and when after twenty "min
utes of cheering, Colonel Roosevelt
made a-determined effort to begin his
speech, the immense audience was
swung off into another period of
cheering - by the 'beginning of the
chant, "We want Teddy. We want

Frowned on Applause.
The attention and silence that
greeted the address l.v Colonel Roose
velt was as marked as the demonstra
tion that preceded it. At the first at
tempts to interrupt with applause, the
presidential candidate motioned im
peratively with his left hand for si
lence; and lie accompanied this ges
ture with a shake of the head which
made the crowd realize his desire to
be allowed to speak without interrup
tion. , .
Thousand Turned Away.
The immense garden, covering a city
block, was crowded to Its doors, and
thousands of persons were turned

candidate for vice president, and Osear

high pitch of enthusiasm.
Entered While Johnson Was Speaking.
Governor Johnson was still speak
ing when Colonel Roosevelt was
brought to the hall at 9.15 p. m. The
colonel had rested at the home of his
physician, ,Drv- Lambert for several
hours, and his arrival was timed to
meet the conclusion of Governor John
son's address; Cheers in the street
outside signalled his approach and an
answering cheer from within the hall
brought Governor Johnson's speech to
Crowd Sings and Cheers.
' As the colonel appeared at the back
of the platform, men and women
jumped on chairs, waved bandanas,
flags and handkerchiefs and shouted
"Roosevelt!" "Teddy!" and other terms
of recognition. As the demonstration
progressed the band broke in at in
tervals with songs that the crowd sang
heartily, to return to the cheering at
' A Stuffed Bull Moose. '
A spot light that had been trained
throughout the 'early part of the eve
ning on a stuffed bull moose mounted
at one end of the hall, was suddenly
shifted to Colonel Roosevelt in the
midst of the demonstration, bringing a
boisterous appreciation from the crowd.
"Everybody's doin' if," injected into
the noise by the band, was taken up
with fervor, and the cry of "He's a
bear, he's a bear," brought smiles to
tne race or the- candidate.
Colonel Roosevelt adhered to the
text of his prepared speech.
