SHERMAfHS DEAD. Continued from the First Page.1 ways regarded him as the ablest and most conservative statesman of our country. He was in every sense a true American. His long career of public service has never been marred by a fail ure. The greatest monument to his memory -will be his own splendid rec ord." Henry C. Payne, vice chairman of the Republican central national committee, said: "Jily acquaintance with Senator Sherman has extended over a period of thirty years and he possessed my high est respect and regard. His career has been a credit to himself and to his coun try. He was one of the statesmen who have accomplished something in the way of legislation which has made and will continued to make a strong impression on the welfare of the country. His passing away removes one of the statesmen of what may be called the war period and there are not many left." Senator James K. Jones, chairman of the Democratic national committee, said: ' For many years I regarded Mr. Sher man as the wisest Republican in public life. He was a man of great sagacity and foresight and has impressed his per sonality as much upon the government in the last forty years as any other man who has been before the public." Ex-Comptroller of the Treasury James II. Eckies said: ' I regret to learn that Senator Sherman has passed away. I knew him intimately in Washington. I do not know of any one who could have been more gracious in his own home and more entertaining in conversation." HE 'AS A GREAT MAM. Canton, O., Oct. 22. Judge Wm. R. Day, who succeeded the late John Sher man as secretary of state, in speaking of his death said: "In the death of Secretary Sherman the country has lost one of its greatest statesmen and notable figures. Mr. Sher man has been continuously in national affairs for a greater length of time than any American now living. He became prominent in public life as far back as the fifties, when he was a member of the congressional committee that visited Kansas to invesigate the troubles then prevailing there, iie neipea iorm in Kepublican party and throughout his long career was one of the most trusted and able leaders. His impression is on all of the great measures enacted into legislation and carried into the consti tution during and after the civil war. Perhaps his crowning work was as sec retary of the treasury under President Hayes, when he carried to successful is sue the act providing for the resump tion of specie payments. In great meas ure we owe to his firmness and courage the high credit of our country abroad, and the sound condition of its finances at home. He was, indeed, a great man. and his countrymen wiil mourn his loss find cherish his memory. His place in history is secure as one of the foremost of American statesmen." PRESIDENT'S PROCLAMATION. "Washington, Oct. 22. The president this afternoon issued the following proc lamation: DEATH OF THE HOX. JOHN SHER MAN. By the president of ths United States of America, A Proclamation. To the People of the United States: In the fullness of years and honors, John Sherman, lately secretary of state, has passed away. Few among our citizens have risen to greater or more deserved eminence in the national councils than he. The story of his public life and services is as it were the history of the country for half a century. In the congress of the United States the ranked among the foremost in the house and later in the senate. He was twice a member of the executive eabi nent, first as secretary of the treasury und afterwards secretary of state. Whether in debate during the dark hours of our civil war, or as the director jf the country's finances during the per iod of rehabilitation, or as a trusted councillor in framing the nation's iaws for over 40 years, or as the exponent of its foreign policy, his course was ever marked by devotion to the best interests of his beloved land, and by able and conscientious -effort to uphold its digni ty and honor. His countrymen will long revere his memory and see in him a type of the patriotism, the uprightness and the zeal that go to moulding and strengthening a nation. In fitting expression of the sense of fcereavement that afflicts the republic, I direct that on the day of the funeral the executive offices of the United States display the national flag at half mast and that the representatives of the Uni ted States in foreign countries shall pay in like manner appropriate tribute to the illustrious dead for a period of ten clays. i Done at the city of Washington, this twenty-second day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand and nine hundred and of the independence of the United States of America, the one hun dred and twenty-fifth. WILLIAM. M'KINLET. By the president: JOHN HAY, Secretary of State. IN DIPLOMATIC CIRCLES. In diplomatic circles the news of Mr. Fherman's death brought many expres sion of heartfelt regret as the foreign representatives had been brought in in timate association with him during his pervices as secretary of state. The French charge d'affaires, M. Thiebaut, accompanied by Captain Vignal and M. Heoufve of the embassy staff took early occasion to leave cards at the Sherman residence and other members of the corps paid their respects later. The Chi nese minister and members of his suit were among the callers about noon. M. Thiebaut spoke of Mr. Sherman as a man whose name was known the world over, as conspicuous in the public life end progress of this country. Similar tributes were expressed at the Russian and German embassies. The Chinese minister, Mr. Wu, said that above all Mr. Sherman was a good man, a truly irood man, one whose influence had ai isvays been elevating in public affairs and for the maintenance of the right. FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS. Washington, Oct. 22. The funeral of John Sherman wiil be held at the Sher man residence early Wednesday after noon. Rev. Alexander McKay Smith, rector of St- John's church, officiating. The hour has not yet been determined as the railway arrangements for trans porting the body to Mansfield, Ohio, de rend upon a message from President Cassatt, of the Pennsylvania, which la hourly expected. Services will be held in Tansfield. on Thursday, which Presi Vnt McKinley will attend. It is- known that Mr. Sherman left a wiil, but no Information as to its con tents, or even when it will be probated, will be. obtainable until after tke fu neral. THE NEWS IN LONDON. London, Oct. 22. The news of the death of ex-Secretary Sherman reached here too late for most of the afternoon newspapers. The Pall Mall Gazette thinks that "while the result of his sec retaryship in President McKlnley's ad ministration showed Mr. Sherman had outlived his usefulness his services to his country for the preceding forty years were great and will be remembered with CratHude." SIORT OF SHERMAN'S LIFE. The passing of John Sherman removes fforn the public stage about the last of a6M tow-ir.g figures whose public lives beginning with the oivil war and cover let riei . lis last 49 years wers interwoven with the great events of that epoch. As his illustrious brother, William Tecumeeh, shared with Grant and Sheridan the highest place among the military heroes of the generation, so, too, John Sherman stood in civic life along with Seward, Sumner, Evarts, Blaine and that coterie of intellectual giants of war and reconstruction days. Always a leader, twice a member of the cabinet, first as head of the treasury and then of state affairs, three times a candidate for the Republican nomina tion for the presidency and for years one of the great creative forces in congress his name was identified with the laws, the law-making and the political strug gles which engaged attention for almost half a century. Few men had more con tinuous public service in such a diversity of fields and in all of them his work was conspicious. John Sherman was bom in Lancaster, O., May 10, 1S23, three years after the birth of his brother William Tecumseh. They came of sturdy ancestors, tracing their lineage back to Roger Sherman, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.to the Shermans who came over shortly after the landing of the Pilgrims. The father was a lawyer of prominence of Ohio who rose in later life to be Judge of the supreme court When he died in 1829 the large family of boys were left with scant support and were adopted by friends and rela tives. William went with Thomas Ew ing, who shaped his career as a soldier while John went with an older brother, Charles, at Mansfield and took up the study of law .which, in turn took him into the field of politics and public life. His first public service was in 184S when he was a delegate to the Whig conven tion at Philadelphia which nominated Zachary Taylor for the presidency. Again in 1852 he was a delegate at Balti more when Winfield Scott was nom inated for the presidency. He was elected to the 34th congress and took his seat December 3, 1855. His prominence began when the speak er, Nathaniel P. Banks, appointed him on the committee to investigate the ruffi anism in "Bleeding Kansas." He was acting chairman during the inquiry and the report he made was the basis for the presidential canvass of 1856. At the end of his second term in congress he was recognized as the foremost man in the house of representatives. He was a can didate for speaker, coming within three votes of that position. His defeat for the speakership led to his becoming chairman of the committee on ways and means. Here for the first time liis pe culiar genius for finance showed itself. The finances of the country were sadly crippled: members of the congress were not receiving their pay. His first step was in securing the passage of the bill authorizing the treasury notes of 1S60. About this time Salmon P. Chase re signed his seat as senator from Ohio and Sherman was elected to his place, entering the senate for the first time on March 4, 1861. His congressional fame had preceded him and he at once took the same rank in the upper branch as he had had in the lower. Hi3 service was continuous until 1873, most of the time as chairman of the finance commit tee, in which position he wrote many of those far-reaching measures of finance with which he was identified. The sus pension of specie payment occurred in 1S62, necessitating the issue of United States notes. He largely carried this measure through, and was also the de fender of the legal tender features of these notes, which excited wide differ ences in and out of congress. Following this he devised the plan for the resum ing of specie payment and practically framed the bill by which resumption was to occur on January 1, 1879. When Hayes became president Sher man entered the treasury and there as executive officer he had an opportunity to execute the plan of specie payment which he had previously placed on the statute books. His first move .was to begin the accumulation of great stocks of gold with which to pay specie for paper when January 1, 1879, arrived. Six months before that time he had ac cumulated in the treasury $140,000,000 and when January 1 came he had the satisfaction of seeing the paper money gradually rise to the value of gold until gold no longer brought a premium. The execution of this important fiscal move, through congress and in the treasury, aroused intense differences and there was criticism as well as approval. In 1880 he became a candidate for the presidency and hi3 name was presented to the national convention by James A. Garfield. In the contest between the friends of Grant and Blaine, Garfield was nominated. Again in the national convention of 1S84 he was placed in nomination by Joseph B. Foraker. But the Ohio delegation divided and Sher man secured only a few votes. In 1888 he was a candidate for the third time leading throughout with 249 votes on the second ballot and continually there after until Benjamin Harrison was nominated by the .'withdrawal of other candidates. He had returned to the Benate in 1881, serving continuously until 1897 when he resigned to enter the cabinet of Presi dent McKinley as secretary of state. His resignation from that body occurred soon after the declaration of war with Spain and he returned to private life af ter 45 years of almost continuous pub lie service. Since then he has done some literary work, carrying forward his memoirs from the period of hi3 former book. HIS WEALTH. The Grand Old Man of America was one of the richest in the world. This was accounted for by himself as "luck"; but his friends say he had amassed his wealth by actual saving. A close busi ness friend of the family says that the old gentleman had part of the first money tie ever earned. For sixty years he had bgn saving a little all the time and the result is riches; he patronized savings banks and invested in small but lucrative ways. He never put a dol lar down without picking two up. As congressman and chairman of the committee of ways and means of the house, as senator and chairman of the finance committee of the senate, and as secretary of the treasury during some of the most trying times in the financial history of the country. Sen ator Sherman played an important and influential part of the, past forty years. Of his wealth and the various per sonal and political attacks that have been ma'de upon him, he made this statement, after giving his reply to an accusation on, that score: "I have often since been accused of the crime of 'being rich,' but as nearly all my pos sessions are visible to the naked eye, and their history and acquisition are known to so many, I think I am not re quired to prove that I have not made them as the result of legislation or my holding public trusts." INTO MICHIGAN. Enters Mr. Stevenson For a Three Days' Speaking Tonr. Detroit, Oct. 22. Adlai EL Stevenson, Democratic nominee for vice president, arrived in Detroit today from Chicago and after taking breakfast with National Committeeman Campau left on a three days' speaking tour of Michigan. Mr. Stevenson said he was feeling in splen did condition. He expressed himself as very confident of Democratic success and said: "I was particularly impressed by the enthusiasm shown by the, New York vaituk" "SOUND MONEY " PARADE. New York Republicans to Slake - Big Showing Nov. 3. New York, Oct. 22. The Republican sound money parade of November 3 will be a floral exhibit as well as a parade in the interest of the Republican presiden tial nominee. The carnation pink has been adopted as an emblem of the pa- raders, who, in addition to wearing the natural puik, will wear buttons with a pictured pink and the motto: "We will bloom again for McKinley ana Roose velt." They have given orders to local florists to bring to the city 200,000 carna tion pinks for the occasion. A Broadway florist, who has an order for 100,000, said today: "It is perfectly easy to gather in 200, 000 pinks for this occasion. We place our orders with the producers of pinks in all the country round about, and bring thousands from as far west as Wisconsin. The growers gather the flow ers when they reach perfection, put them in cold storage, and deliver them on the morning when they are wanted. "The price will average $50 a thou sand. "Some will probably cost Jl apiece." CUBAN CONVENTION A Subject of Diseussion at the Cabinet Meeting. Washington, Oct 22. The cabinet meeting today lasted from 11 till 1 o'clock. There were present Secretaries Gage, Root, Long and Hay, Attorney General Griggs. Secretary Root and Gen. Leonard Wood had an interview with the presi dent before the meeting. The cabinet meeting was devoted largely to action on the death of ex-Secretary of State Sherman, and the president directed SScretary of State Hay to prepare a for mal announcement of the death for the official information of the diplomatic service, as is customary in such cases. The meeting also considered the sub ject of the Cuban constitutional conven tion and it was said that General Wood brought with him some interesting in formation on this subject which was laid before the cabinet by the president. In addition to this there were a num ber of matters relating to national poll tics that the president wished to discuss with his advisers before leaving tonight for Ohio, where he will remain till the night of election day. At the conclusion of the meeting it was stated that the agreement between England and Germany as to their future policy in China is specially satisfactory to this government, particularly as it is a recognition of the principles laid down in the Hay note July 3, regarding- the open door in China and the maintenance of the Integrity of the empire.

The strength of the market is a surprise to everyone, but es pecially to the big bulls who sold out about the middle of last week. When these interests disposed of their holdings, it was considered a foregone conclusion that stocks would experience a sharp set back. But in spite of the withorawal of Worrastr and his associates, the market continued ita advance, ami has in fact made more rapid strides than when the were at the helm. Outsiders are buying stocks for many months and if this ijuv ing movement develops in proportions, which the more sanguine traders antici pate, a sensational rise is likely to occur during the next couple of weeks. It is claimed by the friends of the sold-out bulls, that stocks are passing into we-ik hands and that a sudden coilapse of the upward movement is only a question of a few days. Representatives of the lead ing commission houses report a substan tial increase in the outside demand for siocks and people who are buying them are fully prepared to take care of them. One house received an order Saturday to buy five thousand shares of different divi dend paying stocks from a client who had not made a trade since the early part of last summer. It is encouraging to lie able to note this awakening of the outside pub lic It reflects returning confidence and insures a higher level of values. Unless something unexpected occurs to turn the market from its present course. As there seems to be no doubt in the minds of Wail street people in regard to the outcome of the election, and as it is generally con ceded that the re-election of McKinley will stimulate business and insure a con tinuance of the prosperity which the coun try is now enjoying, it would be strange if the stock market did not have a fair sized boom. Just at the moment senti ment is decidedly bullish and this week will in all probability witness considerable new business of a vigorous character. European speculators have not, as yet, shown any pronounced disposition to buy our securities. This is -no doubt is due to the fact that more uncertainty exists abroad over the result of the election than on this side. If foreigners felt success of McKinley's election, they would be liberal buyers. Holdings of American securilie-i in Europe are insignificant compared with what they were a couple of years ago. The strength in the eteel stocks suggests manipulation. There is a movement on foot to make them pell higher in order to make a market for insiders to sell. Peo ple who make a specialty of this class of stocks predict a big advance in prices in the event of McKinley's election. Morgan is said to be furnishing the buying power in Northern Pacific, common, and South ern railway stocks. It certainly requ.res support of the highest grarle to sustain I the price of Northern Pacifis. in the fare of the constantly decreasing earnings. There is considerable investment buying 01 njniauii i:iiiiiiiiuii. u,4 iuiiy ueeil stated in these notes there this is one of the most promising low-priced stocks and those who can afford to carry it should buy for a long pull. If. as seems to be the general impress-ion, we are to have a genuine bull market, the Grangers wiil all sell considerably higher. R. N. HUDSON. Joseph's Tips. Furnished by J. C.
