Tho City Shocked by tho Slid Tidings Kx presslons of Sorrow and Esteem From Men of All l'urtlcs Arrangements For the Funeral Action of tho Senate. Senator James 13. Deck, of Kentucky, dropped dend in tbo Baltimore and Potomac station at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Ho Lad just arrived on tho limited express from Now York and was accompanied by bis daughter, Mrs. Goodloe, wife of Maj. Goodloc, of tbo United States Marine Corps. He got oft the train with the rest of tho passengers and walked with his daughter tho entire length of tho platform and through tho gate leading to tbo station proper. He seemed to walk with an effort and to breathe with labor, but these symptoms were the usual accompaniments of exertion with him for some mouths past. After passing into tbo station the Senator and his daughter stopped and were joined by bis pri vate secretary, who had brought a carriage to take them home. A few words wcro exchangod with regard to tho caro of baggage, when the Senator sud denly turned pale, and with tbo remark, "I feel dizzy," fell into tho arms of his compan ions. They could not support his weight, and he dropped to the floor, where ho swooned away. His daughter was naturally alarmed and screamed for help. Willing hands were numerous, as tho station was crowded at tho time, and tho limp and helpless body was borne into the office of the stationma6ter, about twenty feet away. Great excitement ensued, and al though it was apparent that tho Senator was dead, half a dozen messengers were immedi ately despatched for physicians, and all the remedies at band were applied, but all to no effect. Dr. Cbamberlaiu was tho first phy sician to arrive, and he was soon followed by Dr. Wells and others, but there was nothing for them to do except to examine the body to de termine the cause of death. A superficial examination only was possible at tbo time, but this was sufficient to satisfy tho physicians that death resulted from paraly sis of the heart and immediately followed the attack. Tho news was telegraphed to the Capitol, and subsequently spread like wildfire to all sections of the city. .Representatives Breckinridge, Caruth, Stone, and others of the Kentucky Congressional delegation hurried to the station at once and arranged for tho removal of the remains to a . more suitable place. - At 4:15 Mr. Harris interrupted tbo proceed ings of the Senate, and asked that a bulletin which bo bad just received should be read to tho Senate. The presiding officer, Mr. Ingalls, read, in a voice betraying deep emotion, the following: Western Union Tkleghai'ii Lines. Bulletin. Senator Book jiiBt dropped dead In the Baltimore and Potomac station. Manager W. U. Tel. Co. "In view of this sad fact," said Mr. Harris, "I move that the Senato do now adjourn." Tho motion was agreed to, and Senators and officials gathered around Mr. Harris, expressing to each other their sincere sorrow at the sudden death of a man so much loved and respected. Mr. Ingalls instructed tho assistant scrgeant-at-arms, Mr. Reed, to proceed at once to tbo Baltimore and Potomac Railroad station, ascer tain the facts, make all proper arrangements, and have tho Senato flag half-masted. Tho body of Senator Beck was removed f r om the station to tho house of Representative Breckinridge, of Kentucky, on Capitol Hill. The remains were taken in charge by Under taker Barker, and later in the evening were em balmed. No arrangements have as yet been made for tho funeral. Major and Mrs. Goodloe, the son-in-law and daughter of Mr. Beck, have ex pressed a willingness to leave all arrangements for the funeral in the bauds of tho Kentucky uuicjruiauii m congress, auu moy uoiu a meet ing to-day for tho purpose of making these arrangements. Tho body will Seuator Beck's there, where his buried. Mr. Beck left bo taken to Lexington, Ky home, and will bo interred wife and one daughter Ho a son named Geortre. who at present is somewhere iu Wyoming, but tbo tele graph has been put to use, and he will be in formed of his father's death. Tho only other child left by Mr. Beck is his daughter, Mrs. Goodloo. There were a largo number of callers at tbo houso during last evening. Expressions of recret and sentiments of high regard wero heard everywhere in tho city, es pecially among those who had known Mr. Beck most intimately. Those who knew him best wero free in their expressions of sorrow. Senator Sherman had served a long tltno with Senator Beck on tbo Finance Committee, and bad formed, bo said, a high opinion of tbo abil ities of tho deceased. "Ho was," said Senator Sherman, "a man of strong opinions, vigorous intellect, and positlvo convictions, especially on the subject of free trade. Ho was honest and conscientious, and very stubborn. Ho was a good Senator, industrious and a hard laborer, well-equipped with a great variety of arguments. While wo disagreed iu nearly all our opinions on political questions, I had a sincere respect for bis hon esty and manly and bold expressions of opinion. Ho was a Yory useful man, and his death will be greatly regretted bv all and deplored as a serious misfortune by Ills friends and acquaint ances." Senator Cockrell, of Missouri, said ho con sidered Senator Beck one of tho ablest men who ever occupied a seat on tho floor of tbo Senato. Ho was well-equipped at all points for a legislator, and had rendered great service to his btato and to tho whole country as well. Senator Allison, with whom Senator Beck was more intimately associated than with any other man on tho Republican side, said: "Ho was constant, faithful and intelligent in his work iu tho Senato. Able but iucislvo iu debate, of strong convictions and sturdy integrity, ho exerted a groat iullueuce. His loss will bo deeply felt by his associates and the country loses ono of its most valuable and able public men." Senator Ingalls said: "Senator Beck's sud den death was a very great 6hoek to us all. His personal characteristics were very engaging and attractivo, and ho was universally popular with all his associates iu the Senate, Ho had great kindness of heart, and was genial and lovablo and always ready to oblige. lie had no antagonism nor quarrels, though hU partisan ship was intense. His death is an Irrcparablo loss to his State and bis party, and will bo sin cerely lamented by all who know him." Senator Edmunds grieved over tho nows and said: "I knew Mr. Beck when in tbo Houso of Representatives, and for several years, since ho has been in tho Senate, intimately. Although wo have differed essentially in political views, as such views are commonly understood, wo almost always agreed in respect of measures of general legislation, with tho exception of tbo question of so-called free trade or protection and in respect of tho condition of affairs in the Southern States. Ho was a man of absoluto purity of character and conduct, brave, up right, intelligent, industrious, honorable. He has been a public servant without spot or blemish, and his death is a great loss to his country and to his friends." Mr. Carlisle said Mr. Beck had performed many valuable services for the country at largo and for his constituency. "It will bo a long time before the people of Kentucky suc ceed in filling his place with a gentleman so In dustrious, energetic, and conscientious." Among those mentioned as probable succes sors to Mr. Beck, are ex-Speaker Carlisle, ex Governor McCreary, Governor Buckuer, and Proctor Knott. It is thought likely that the last mentioned gentleman is likely to be appointed by the Governor of Kentucky to fill the vacancy until the Legislature cau elect. It Is generally admitted that Mr. Carlisle cau have tho Sena torsbip if bo wants it, but it is thought that bis personal preference will be to remain in the Houso as leader of his party. Many Demo cratic members 6aid last night that this Is tbo course ho ought to pursue, as ho can be of more use to the party where he is than in the Senate. Still there are those who predict that Mr. Car lisle will be elected by the Kentucky Legislature a6 Mr. Beck's successor. Mr. McCreary is generally regarded as the man who will get the promotion If Mr. Carlisle declines it, while Governor Buckuer is looked upon as a strong probability. " DEATH TO THE GOVERNMENT."

Reports have been in circulation for a, couple of days indicating that there was something wrong with the banking and loan firm of Sloan, Colegrove fc Co., No. 517 Seventh street. The firm begau business about three months ago, and, as far as could be learned, consisted of young Mr. Colegrove, a man of about twenty five years of age, sou of Dr. J. B. Colegrove, of this city. Mr. Sloan is not known to have been here at all, and is said to bo a New York broker and father-in-law of young Mr. Colegrove. " Ho was supposed to have supplied tho money with which the business of the firm was to bo carried on. This business does not seem to have been very extensive. It was conducted by two male clerks and one young woman. When tho clerks were taken Into the employment of tho firm they wero obliged to make in advance deposits of differ ent sums of money as security that they would not fly to Canada with the funds which tbey handled. One of the male clerks, a Mr. M. II. Johnson, Is said to have deposited $300 with Mr. Colegrove and tho lady clerk $100. On Friday Mr. Johnson made complaint to tho police that he did not think all was right with the Arm, as ho had not re ceived any of the salary of $20 a week which he had been promised nor could he get his ,300 deposit back. Sinco then the police have been looking into the case, but they do not appear to have been able to locate Mr. Colegrove nor the "funds" of tho bank. Mr. Colegrove seems to have been rather hard to find for some time. On Thursday night Mr. Johnson and the other gentleman em ployed there remained in the bank all night, in the hope that the proprietor would drop in during tho evening. The evening wore to night aud tho night to morning, but be did not come. Sometime after daylight Mr. Colegrove appeared, when the two irate clerks pounced on him and demanded some of the money due them. Mr. Colegrove only had $12 with him, and this he gave up, tho clerks dividing it between them pro rata according to what was due them. Tho poor lady clerk seems to have been entirely forgotten in the deal. A number of business men on Seventh street, in the neighborhood of Mr. Colcgrovo's bank, and others, are said to be as anxious to interview the gentleman as his clerks were. Thomas J. Fisher fc Co., for rent; Kcrvand & Co., for engiavlnfc'; tbe-agent .of -a-New York firm, for furniture3, Mr. - Saitzstein, thojoweler, for agold watch and other trinkets, and several other firms are reported to have little bills against tho missing Mr. Colegrove, which they would esteem it a great favor to have settled. Meanwhile, the youthful banker and investor Is known no more in his accustomed haunts, and it is supposed he has gono to the seaside for the summer, taking his tennis suit with him. Mr. Colegrove's family last night professed to know nothing about him, although they did not think ho had left the city. Mr. Johnson, the clerk, wkeu he lodged his complaint with the police, volunteered tho in formation that Mr. Colegrovo had been arrested in Philadelphia for practices similar to those be has indulged In here, and was now under bonds to answer the charges in the Quaker City.
