Cuhilination of an Illness Dat ing Back Two Years. AIDED BY SON'S DEATH. But One of the Old Armours Is Now Left. Financial Interest of the Family Will Be Undisturbed. Chicago, Jan. 7.Philip Danforth Ar rnourphilanthopist, financier and multi-millionaire head of the vast com mercial establishment that bears his name---died a,t his home, 2115 Prairie avenue, at 5:45 Sunday evening-. A muscular affection of the heart, known as myocarclitis, was the immediate cause of death. He had been slowly re covering from pneumonia, that for three weeks had threatened his life. Air. Armour was surrounded by his family when he died. Those at his bed side besides his physician and .nurses were his wife, Airs. Philip D. Armour, jr., and Mr. and Airs. J. Ogden Armour, and Rev. Frank W. Gunsaulus. The millionaire retained consciousness until within an hour of his death. During the, day he had realized that death was near. To those around him he had said: "I 'know I arn very sick, and am ready for death when it comes." Soon after luncheon and just before the physician forbad? his talking more, Air Armour. in feeble tones, said he would like to hear the Lord's prayer read. One of the trained nurses who had been attending him drew a chair ta the bedside and slowly read from the Bible the prayer for which the dying man ha,d asked. It was read sentence by sen tence and each was repeated by Mr. Ar mour. When the "amen" had been re peated by him he sank back on the pil low. and closed his eyes restfully. It was the last word the great financier spoke except feeble farewells to his family a. littlelater. LONG ILLNESS. The end came after two years of ill ness during which time Air. Armour vis ited German baths, passed the cold months in southern California and de voted himself largely to an attempt to restore his health, which, however, had been broken never to be regained. For several weeks he had been living at the old family home in Prairie avenue, the usual trip ta southern California. not having been taken this winter. He came tiOW1. to the office in the Home in surance building but seldom, and as the cold increased he did not go at all. It was understood in the otlice that he had an incipient attack of pneumonia, but it was given out no later than a week ago that he was on the road to recovery. It was noted, however, that the con stant attendance of Dr. Frank Billings, the family physician. did not corrobo rate the favorable reports of the down town office. For several days death had been feared as the outcome by the close asso ciates of the great captain of industry. They realized that the decline from (lay to day did not cease. and that there could be but one end. When death came, his grandchildren, W110 had so close a. place in his heart, were at the family residence, as was J. Og-den Ar mour, the surviving SOn Air. Armour had lost strength steadily from (lay to day since the commence ment of winter. The pneumonia was checked, but strength was not regained. The firm grip he had so long maintained upon the business of Armour & Co.. whether at the ()trice or thousands of miles away. steadily relaxed. Reports no longer interested him as they were wont to do. during, the. first months of his declining- health. The sudden death of his son nearly a year ago hung heav ily upon him during the closing- months of his life. In fact, he never recovered from the shock he experienced from that event. It stopped his progress toward recovery in his winter home at Pasa dena, and its sorrow remained fresh un til the end. His treadmill of work and his firm griper' affairswere maintained until the spring of 1S99. Then the machine began to show Si2-11S of breaking-. Air. Ar mour was reported to be a, sick man, and these reports were confirmed when he sailed for Germany to take, baths at Bad Nauheine He spent most of the summer at the baths, and was suf ficiently restored to health to take a. trip to Sw itzerland, where he remained a. month in the mountains. When he returned to Chicago that fall he was looking well, and his friends pc, I -------, . , , . 1 , P' j.d.,Ý ... f., . -i -:, . ,,,:-':, - if -------7::-';'"-i7.

ARMOUR. hoped his recovery was complete. Hs went to Danforth Lodge, the summer home of his son, Philip D. Armour, Jr.. at Oconomowoc Lake, Wis., and he re mained there until nearly winter. Then he journeyed to Pasadena, in southern California, for the cold months. All the time he was at Oconomowoc he made weekly trips to his office in the Home Insurance building, and was receiving constant reports of the general drift of his business affairs. The death or his son, Philip D. Ar mour. Jr., in southern California on January 29, 1900. was a g-reat shock to the health-broken man. The son had gone on a visit to his father and was ta ken suddenly with pneumonia. His death followed with scarcely a day's warning. The son had largely Interest ed the father and inherited the business ability of the Armours, and was closely following the footsteps of his father when he was stricken down. His beauti ful home, completed but a year or two before at Michigan avenue and Thirty seventh street, told of his love of art Mr. Armour was not able to accom pany the funeral party to Chicago. When he did return he went direct to Oconomowoc and remained there umil the chill3r weather in the fall drove the summer cottagers to this city. After the death of D. Armour, Jr., the vast interests of Armour & Co., which had been carried on as a copart nership. were incorporated under the old name of Armour & Co. This was to pro vide greater stability- in case of death, and made no change in the practical ownership of properties. Some ye-ars be fore, the grain department had been in corporated under the title of the Ar mour Elevating company. The death of Simeon B. Armour at Kansas City in March, 1S99,caused no particular change in the Armour interests there, as they were operated as a, stock company. PREPARED FOR DEATH. So carefully had the plans for the fu ture been made th,at the death of Mr. Armour will have little effect on the outward working- of the great enterprise with which he had been so closely iden tified. It is .believed all the Armour pro perties be held Intact until the grandchildren come into their OWn. Estimates of Mr. Armour's OWn estate lin from $10,000.000 to $25.000.000. This. of course. does not include the $15,000.000 or $20,000,000 owned by the younger members of the family. For years every enterprise he was interested in has been making immense profits. His holdings of stock have all advanced largely dur ing the last three years. Philip D. Armour, who -was In his 69th year, made his own life on lines unique and wholly original with him self. From a not over-rich Oneida county, N. Y., farm to the position of paying more freight and controlling more pro ViSiOnS than any other man in the world were the two extremes of his life. The ancestral Armours were Connecti cut people, but Philip Armour was not born until after the farrrily had moved to Stockbridge, Oneida county, N. Y. His birth date was May 16, 1832. The California, gold fever struck west ern New York in 1849 and young Ar mour was the first in Stockbridge to de termine to visit the Pacific coast. He secured the permission of his parents and at the age of 17 started, having three or four companions from the same neighborhood. The almost incredible part of it was that the party walked nearly the entire distance from New York to California. MADE START TN CALIFORNIA. The commercial sense. which always predominated in his life, indicated its presence as soon as he saw the gold fields of California. He made money from the- start, and at the end of six years he returned home with a fortune. Becoming dissatisfied with the quiet life of his native town he came west again and together with a brother-inlaw established a large wholesale gro cery house in Milwaukee. This venture was also successful and in a. year's time he purchased the largest g-rain elevator in Alilwaukee This led to more eleva tors and railroad stock. In 1866 he came to Chicago to take charge of the Chi cago branch of a New York packing es tablishment. The result was tha,t the Chicago house ceased to be a branch and the west gained the largest packing and provision plant in the world. Mr. Armour married Miss Malvina, Belle Ogden, daughter of Jonathan Og den, of Cincinnati, in October, 1862. They have had two childrenPhilip D. Ar mour, jr., who died a. year ago. and Ogden Armour, who seems destined by character, training and circumstances to succeed his father as the head of the Armour house. Of the five 'brothers who have been identified -with the upbuilding of the Armour enterprises, Herman O. Armour. who went to New York in 1871 to look after the New York interests of the co partnership, is the only survivor. Joseph D. Armour, Wil0 came to Chi cago in 1863, and gave his attention to superviFion of the packing business, died several years ago. Simeon B. Armour, who for many years directed the Kansas City packing business, died In March, 1899. Andrew Watson Armour, who man aged the banking interests of the Ar mours in Kansas City. died in 1893. The properly interests tor which Mr. Armour stood are estimated at $150,000.- (Continued on Third Page.) TO STOP FUSIOIL New Republican Election Law Is so Designed. Name Can Appear But Once on the Ballot. CHANGE TILE BOARDS. Now Fusionists Are Given the Majority. New Plan Pitts the Reputolleans In Control. Bill to Be Pushed as Straight Party Measure. Every Republican member of the leg islature thinks that the election laws should be changed and as they are all of one opinion and are in the majority there is little doubt but that they will be chan,ged Several members came to Topeka with bills in their pockets which were drawn up with the end in view that the law should be changed but when they arrived here they found that the men who a.re running the party in Kansas had pre pared for the same thing. so the bills brought by the individual members will not be introduced but a bill which is - straight party measure covering all the points will be introduced and passed among the very first. The Republicans are , anxious that fusion should be killed in so far as they can kill it and they also want the elec tion. law changed so that the fusionists will not have a majority of the mem bers on the election boards. The bill will cover both these points and put the elections in the hands of the Republi cans as far as can be done legally. Under the present law the Democrats, Populists, Silver Republicans and any other political organization that is so minded can nominate the same men and their names will go on the ticket as many times as they are nominated by the different parties. The Republicans see in this a disadvantage to themselves, for they say that there are many Demo crats who would not vote for a man on the Populist ticket but would vote for him if his name was in the Democratic column. The law will provide that a name can appear on the ballot but once. If the three minority parties desire to fuse they will have to come under one head on the ballot. - Another feature of the law will be that the judges of elections can no long er be given to the opposition as is the case now. The law will provide that the majority party 11,111 appoint one judge, the minority party one and the mayor of the city or the township trustee the third. This they claim v,111 be a fair method as the party in power in the ward or township will have a majority on the election board. Another change ,in the election law which will be proposed Will be a. change in the ballot which Will allow a voter who desires to vote the straight ticket to draw a cross in a circle which will be printed under tbe heading of each ticket. This will mean that he votes for every man under that head and will do away with the necessity of marking the cross after each name as is 110W re (mired. This part of the bill is similar to the election law in New York, in fact, the entire bill will be modeled after the New York law. The matter has been referred to the senate committee on elections and they have got the matter in shape after a, conference with the state officers. Senator Pestana is the chairman of the committee and Senator Fitzpatrick is a member of the com mittee. These two are the only mem bers here but they have taken the mat ter up and are now preparing the bill. There are a few other minor details in the bill which may be changed before it is presented, but those mentioned are the important ones. This is the only party measure which is 110W being talked of and is the only one which the state central committee is ba,ck of. Senator Pestana and Mort Albaugh are the men who are looking after the bill and the present state officers are making themselves a part of the com mittee to see that it is all rignt and that it Will cover the ground. TO INDICT PATRICK. , - On the Statement of Millionaire Rice's Valet. New York, Jan.7.Although Albert T Patrick has not been indicted in con nection with the death of William Marsh Rice, the eccentric millionaire whose estate is involved in contest, his lawyers are actively preparing to de fend him against the charge of murder, on which he has been locked up in the Tombs since last September. Marx E. Harby. who is looking after Patrick's interests in the CiVil contest over the Rice millions, said last night that he had just sent a letter to As.- sistant District Attorney James W. Os borne, which may have an interesting bearing' on the case. It is assumed by Patrick's friends that when the district attorney decides to lay the case before the grand jury an effort to indict Patrick for the mur der of Rice Will be made on the state ment of the late millionaire's valet. Charles P. Jones, that he saw Patrick holding a towel over Rice's face a short time before the millionaire died. Mr. Harby said that he had been con sulted by a. person whose testimony the assistant district attorney desired to ob tain. and that he had written to Mr. Os borne in connection with that matter. "I told Mr. Osborne," Mr. Harby said last night,-that when the time came we v,-ould be prepared to disprove the state ments of the valet (Jones) by these re putable witnesses We have three v,it nesses by whom we can prove conclu sively that Mr. Patrick was not in Mr. Rice's apartments at the time Jones says he looked into the old gentlernan's room and saw Patrick stooping over Rice and holding a towel across his face. "These witnesses Win prove a com plete alibi for 3.dr. Patrick. They will prove that he not only was not in Mr. Rice's a,partments at that time,but they Will show exactly where they saw him at the time indicated by Jones." Mr. Harty said he had as yet received no reply from Mr. Osborne, although he seemed not to be surprised at that fact. He insisted that his client would be vin dicated when the case came up for set tlement. Captain H. T. Patrick, the aged fath er of the accused man, has just return ed after making a visit to this city to inquire Into the case. Captain Patrick who Is 62 years old, came here from his home in Austin, Texas, called on his SOn in the Tombs prison and consulted his lawyers. Mr. Harby said that Patrick's father ,after going over the case with his lav,-yers, became satisfied that the prosecution would fail, and returned to his Texas home, confident as to the outcome. A LIVE TOWN. - Seattle Citizens Pledge Bonus of $100- 000 to Secure a Warship. 'Washington, Jan. 7.--The navy de partment has been informed that the citizens of Seattle have pledged them selves to raise a funnd of $100.000 ta be paid to Moran Bros., the local ship building concern, to enable them to ac cept the propcsal of tbe navy depart ment to build a battleship at the fig-ure named in the act af congress. To com ply with the department's require ments, the Morans must reduce their bid S200,000, sa that even with this bonus of M0,000, the net reduction must be $100.000. Nothing has been heard pos itively from the other bidders to whom similar proposals were addressed by the department. but it is very much doubt ed that they will be able ta accept. Irt that case a change in plans and read vertisement follow to reduce the cost of4the ships, involving, the sacrifice of about 1,500 tons displacement. NEW QUARANTINE RULES -- Before Charleston Can Get the Naval Station. Washington, Jan. 7.The Port Royal board is today engaged in going through the physical data collected by it. The board has signified very strongly to the people of Charleston, through Mayor Smythe, that an indispensable requirement to the location of a naval station at their town is a radical change in the quarantine system. The present quarantine man aged by the cily authorities has very much vexed and obstructed the naval of ficers whenever they had occasion to enter Charleston harbor and the regulations must be amended if the naval station is to be located, there. The mayor is now consulting with the Charleston board of health on this point and the Port Royal board is waiting to hear from them. WANT SUBMARINE BOATS. -- Advocates of the Holland Working to Have Twenty More Purchased. New York, Jan. 7.A special to the Herald from Washington, says: Notwithstanding the adverse report made by the board of construction, ad vocates of the Holland submarine boat will make a strong effort to attach an amendment to the naval appropriation bill authorizing' 20 additional vessels of this type. France now has five submarine boats in service. Eight were authorized in 1899 and two last May, and the budget for 1901 calls for eight more, making a. total of 23. The United States has one in commission and seven under con struction. sufficient, in the opinion of the board, for experimental purposes and to demonstrate what their value will be for war purposes. In England the adtrfiralty continues to oppose submarine boats and is making no experiments, though it is reported that some are contemplated. Spain has laid up the Feral, a submarine boat with which numerous experiments have been made without altogether satisfac tory results. Russia, Italy and Japan are watching the work of other nations in the submarine field The subject is being studied in Germany, where one boat is being constructed for experi ment. The United States and France are the only powers which are building submarine boat fleets. Hearings Will be given by the senate and house naval committees in regatd, to the "incerase of the navy" to be vo ted at this session, and the men inter ested in the Holland boat will ask 0171- cers who have spoken favorably of the liolland's performances to appear and give their views. The department will urge that if congress determine to auth orize additional submarine boats all in ventors be given an opportunity to en ter the competition for government con tracts. WILL TOUR UNITED STATES - English Jockey Loates Will Visit Noted Race Tracks. New York. Jan. 7The English jockey, Samuel Loates, proposes to cross the continent and visit the principal cities of the United States. He will start west in a. week or ten days with San Fran cisco as his destination. In California he will attend the races at Oakland and Tanforan and visit some of the noted breeding establishments on the Pacific coast. Returning he will visit southern California. New Orleans and Florida. and will sail for home about March 1. Speaking last night of the Tod Sloan incident, Loates said: "If Sloan assented to Ntr. Gardner's proposition to lay him E5,000 to nothing the Jockey club probably considers that a, violation of the rules, although he did rict get the money. It looks to me as if he was let off easily, with a view to giving him a chance to ride in other countries. He will be foolish if he seeks a license in England next year, for the Jockey club never tells what it has against anybody and never retracts and be will surely be turned down.
