Agent of the Rothschilds, a Leading Demo cratic Politician and the Owner of Some of the Fleetest Race-Horses in the Country. New York. Nov. 24. August Belmont, the great banker, influential Democrat and worthy citizen, is dead. He passed away at 3 o'clock this morning, quietly, serenely, surrounded by his sorrowing family, at his home. No. 100 Fifth avenue. Mr. Belmont had been ill but a few days. His sickness was the result of a cold caught at the Mad ison-square Garden during the horse show. Mr. Burdett-Coutts, who had been invited over from England to act as a judge in making the final awards, failed to appear, and August Belmont, who was one of the best American experts in horseflesh, was asked to take tho place of the Englishman. He did so, and while engaged in the work of making awards took cold. It was not thought to be serious at first, but pneu monia developed and Mr.' Bel el on t was con fined to his house. It was not until Thurs day or Friday that the physicians became alarmed, and yesterday afternoon a consul tation was had between Professor Loomis and Dr. J. M. Polk. Dr. Polk remained with the patient daring the night. Tho end came at 3 o'clock this morning, Mrs. Belmont, her daughter, Mrs. S. S. Howland, and the three sons. Perry, August, jr., and Oliver Beimont, being at the bedside of tho dying husband and father. On the plate-glass door of the banking establishment of August Belmont & Co., on the first lioor of No. 23 Nassau street. this leirend appeared this morning: "Closed ou account of the death of Mr. Belmont. " This was the firet intimation to the street that the great financier bad gone, aud it was soon the principal topio of conversa tion. Although the notice announced that the bauking-house was closed, its doors wero not. in fact, shut. Inside was alter Luttgen, the junior partner of the firm, and all of the clerks, book-keepers and other employes. No business was being transact ed, however, beyond what was absolutely necessary, for even the death of a great financier cannot interrupt the centers oi all financial operations, lo a reporter Mr. Luttgen said the death of Mr. Belmont bad been so sudden and unexpected that he had not recovered from the shock which its an nouncement had caused, and he did not care to talk about it. T have no doubt that the house will be continued. as before. despite.the death of the senior member,'1 said he. MR. BELMONT'S CAREER. Mr. Belmont was born in Alzey, Germany, in 1S1G, where his father was a landed pro prietor. He was educated in Frankfort, and for several years was in the employ of the Rothschilds in their banking-house in that city and also in Naples. In 1837 he settled in New York and became agent here for the Rothschilds. It was by the advice of Mr. Belmont that the Rothschilds have made their largo investments in American government securities. A quarrel concern ing a lady about this period led to a duel, in which be was shot and lamed for life. From 1844 to 1850 he was consul-general at New York for the Austrian government, but owing to his disapptoval of the treat ment received by Hungary from Austria he resigned his oilice. Mr. Belmont, in 1S53, was appointed United States charge d'affaires at The Hague, and a year later be came minister resident. He resigned in 183S. having first negotiated a highly im portant consular couvention, for which, with other diplomatic service, he received the special thanks of the department atl Washington, tor many years he was en gaged in banking business in this city, and was well known as a patron of tine arts, his collection of paintings being one of the finest in this city. Mr. Belmont took an active interest m politics. InlbOOhoasa delegate to the Democratic national convention', and from that year until 1872 was chairman of the national Democratic committee. For twenty years be was president of the Amer ican Jockey Club, and was a member of the Union and other clubs in New York. He married a daughter of Commodore Matthew C.Perry. Mr. Belmont's loss will be felt in pacing circles as much as in the financial world, where he was recognized as a tower of strength. He has always been an enthusi astic lover of thoroughbreds, and to him, more than any other man is due the promi nent position that racing occupies in this country at the present time. He was a breeder of thoroughbreds, and the owner of a raciug stable from pure love of tho sport. Among the star performers that have made Mr. Belmont's name famous throughout tho racing world have been such horses as Fides, the holder of the six furlong record; Raceland, the suburban winner; Potomac, the king of two-year-olds; Prince Royal, Ulen F.lge, Kinjr Fisher, Lady Primrose. Lady Margaret, LaTosca, Clarendon, and a host of others. ' Other Deaths. London, Nov. 24.

Only Twenty-Two Years Old A Brilliant Or ator with Short Hair. Baltimore Sun. Emma Goldman, the Anarchist agitator from New York, addressed two meetings of workingmen yesterday. She is a brilliant speaker, and the first few sentences won the attention of her audiences. he is about twenty-two years of age, and of ordi nary, appearance, except that her hair is cut short and combed straight 'jack from the forehead. In conversation last night she said: "I have been an Anarchist almost since my fourteenth year, when my parents moved to St. Petersburg from my birthplace in Germany. It was in Russia that I began to understand and study the conditions of the poorer classes, and I became possessed of an inspiration to do what was possible for me to right these great wrongs. Five years ago my parents came to America. I soon discovered that here was work for me to do for humanity's sake. I have spoken in all the great cities of America, and, with Mrs. Parsons, represent the entire staff of female agitators in America. My parents live in Rochester, N. Y. They are orthodox Jews. I return to New York on Monday morning." In the afternoon Miss Goldman spoke at In dustrial Hall and last night at Cau makers' Hall, saying, in part: "Comrades, many, if not all of you, come from Russia and other countries, and those of you who were compelled to leave there on account or economic or political reasons came to America to learn many disappoint ments. You thought you were coming to a land of civilization and freedom and invention. When yon arrived in New York and saw the grand streets and great buildings heaped full of riches, they were revelations to you who had just come from your wretched villages, and you said: 'Oh, this is trulj a great country, where we may breathe the air of freedom;' yet, when the novelty of these new sights had worn oil', aud you camejto the side streets and saw there the wretched squalor and misery of the tenement-houses, then you wondered and cried: 'Oh, how did it come to pass that such grand and magniticent things can exist so close to such wretched misery!' And you concluded that it is as horrible here as in Russia and all Europe. "In America the Jewsearn comparatively even less than in Russia, since in the latter country he can live so much more cheaply than here. In Russia, too, he knows that there exists a tyrant, and they came to America in a false hopo of enjoying free dom; yet here they send men to Black well's island and hang others for free speech, and that, too, under the cloak of a so-called free constitution; so that, since this country does the wrong in an underhand and sneak ing way, America has become far more des potic even than Russia. Yet there are peo ple now to teach you the manner in which to throw of! the hateful yoke. "They have not come like Moses, who treed a nation because he wished himself to rule them, but they have come to teach you wisdom that you may aid in the im provement of all mankind. It is alike in all countries. The capitalist, the govern ment and the church are band in hand to oppress the workingmanl The capitalist spends his money on people who are to make laws for bis especial bene tit, and the rabbi, priest and minister are paid by him to tell clever lies to the poor, ignorant peo ple. They are to tell the poor of some su preme being who will punish them in the future. This they do to awe the working man from an uprising against the rich." Duel with Razors In the Dark. Philadelphia, Nov. 24. William Henry Pennington, colored, of 1230 Budd street, this city, and Richard Corsey, his boarder, also colored, quarreled to-night over money matters, aud finally came to blows. In the course of the tight the lamp in the room was overturned, leaving the place in total darkness. A terrible duel followed, the men using the furniture upon each other with awful effect. The cries of a woman living on an upper floor brought the police to the ficenet and when a light was pro cured Penhington was found lying on tho floor almost cut to pieces. One of Corsey's ears was attached to his head by only a shred of flesh, and he was otherwise cut and bruised. Both men had used razors. Pennington will die. - --r m m - , Citizen of Denver Missing. Denver, Col., Nov. 24. F. B. Crocker, president of Board of Public Works and of the Crocker Cracker Manufacturing Com pany, has been missing since yesterday noon and no trace of his whereabouts can be found. His friends fear that he may have been foully dealt with. His son, Ii. l Crocker, is greatly agitated over the matter, and is of the opinion that Mr. Crocker has become temporarily insane through worrying over the street-paving and sewer complications which exist here. The reople Who Write. Philadelphia Record. Somebody who has been working on a newspaper for seventeen years flgures it out that in that time he has writtem more than thirteen million words on almost ev ery imaginable subject, which in book form would make eighty-eight volumes of the ordinary size. A great deal of such writing may be called "stuff;" but, then, the same term may justly be applied to much that is dignitied by the name of literature. The National Fawu-Hhop Idea. Nebraska JournaL The Farmers' Mutual Benefit Association of Illinois having elected three members of the Legislature, have met and put forth their national platform. It is somewhat platitudinous, but the kernel of tho nut is that the government shall lower the taxes and at the same time lend every man who applies with good "security" not to exceed $1,000 at 4 per cent, interest.
