His death caused the great est pain a - '' i consternation among the members of the company. The Associated Press to-night received the fol lowing telegram from Mr. Stoker: Very terrible news. Fir Henry Irving had an attack of syncope after returning from the theatre to the hotel to-night and died suddenly.

The following telegram was received at the Tribune office last evening: Sir Henry Irvir.g's death is a universal be reavement. He was a great man ami the great est of actors. WILLIAM WINTER. Los Angeles, Oct. 13. SIR HEXRYS CAREER. Had Dominated English Speaking Stage Since Early Years. Fir Henry Irving, one of the leading actors of the nineteenth century, and probably the great est actor living at the opening of the twentieth century, a man who for many years dominated the English speaking stage and made his influ ence felt in the scted drama of other tongues, was sixty-seven years old when he died -not a particularly advanced which goes to show the early dominance of Sir Henry's powers. Pir Henry, known In early life as John Henry Hrr.dribb. was born on February 6. 1838, •,-, Somersetshire. England, and passed his early boyhood in Cornwall. After a brief schooling he began life as a clerk in a Lor.don East India house, but through a so caliefl "city elocution class" he learned where his bait lay. a.nd adopted the stage as a career, appearing first in 1856. when he was eighteen rears old. In Bulwer's "Richelieu" The next year be entered a stock company In Edinburgh, playing with the leading stars of the time. In the two years and a half of his stay with this company he played 428 recorded parts. Such was an actor's training In those days. In October. 1874, he first tried Hamlet, with great success the tragedy lasting 200 nights, a teal unprecedented at that time. The next year he acted Macbeth, with less popular success. The next year found Him playing, also, Othello In IS7B occurred his first performance as Louis XI. ? Character impersonation, which at once met with great favor, and remained to the end me of his most popular and vivid parts. The ■ame year he became manner of the London Lyceum Theatre, and revived "Hamlet." with Miss Terry as Ophelia. HIS GREATEST PART. The nest year saw the first performance of what many consider his finest achievement, his Shylock. in -The Merchant of Venice." Miss Terry-, great Portia was first seen at the same time, and together they carried the play to 250 Performances— record Shakespearian run- In 2SSI Irving acted lago to Booth's Othello, a treat hundreds sought to see.' In 18S3 Bir Henry and Miss Terry made their first tour to the United States, and on October 31 he appeared at the Star Theatre, Broadway and 10th-st., in "The Bells" before a crowded and enthusiastic house. After a month of repertory Jn New-Tork. th«: two players and the L,yceum company Journeyed over the country. They re- P*atc-d their visit in the fall of 1884. and Irving acted Shyloek here, and. for the first time in America, Hamlet. It was in the following fall, in London, that Irving made his production of "Faust," which 'opt him. it is said, $45,000.

Prepared to Use Force in Efforts to Coerce Venezuela. Washington. Oct. 13.— American grievances against Venezuela may be settled by diplomacy, while France, in the absence of any diplomatic relations at Caracas, may yet be compelled to resort to a show of force. Despite the assur ance? of Foreign Office officials at Paris, it is stated here that the French ultimatum has been practically ready to dispatch for a week or more and that France has the full assent of the Washington government to adopt an effective course of action against Venezuela to obtain the renewal of diplomatic relations and the restoration of «French property seized by the Caracas government. This briefly is the situation to-night. The French ultimatum will be held up until further conferences have occurred between the French embassy here and the State Department. So far as Judge Calhoun, the American special commissioner, has reported to the department, there is nothing in the situation at Caracas that cannot be settled by patient and firm diplomacy. While not prepared to announce definitely its exact course of action, the Washington govern ment has let France know informally its belief that American fi rie,-ances against Venezuela, although severe, can be settle without the as sistance of American warships. This informa tion was not communicated with any intention of forestalling a resort by Fiance to force, but was in answer to the earnest request of the Paris government. Even if France should find it necessary to es tablish a pacific, blockade against Venezuela the Washington government will offer no objection, having already assured jtself that the Monroe. Doctrine is not involved in any ■way. In dip lomatlc circles the opinion Is expressed, how ever, that the Venezuelan President would yield before a. pacific blockade is established. The aversion on the part of France and the United States to the use of warships arises from the fact that the blockading of Venezuelan ports at this time will affect not so much Venezuela as it will the creditor powers to whom a portion of the customs receipts has been awarded by the Hague tribunal until their claims shall have been paid in full.

Oct. 13— United States Senator Foraker this evening answered in an open let ter criticisms of his Rellefontaine speech and other utterances on railroad rates made also in an open letter, by the Receivers and Ship pers' Association of this city. Senator Foraker begins by resenting the in timation by the association that he might straddle th« question. He reiterates his former expressions opposing the placing of greater au thority in the matter with the Interstate Com merce Commission. He says: It Is because the exercise of this power can not be limited to a bingle rate, but must em brae, in every case hundreds, and possibly thousands, of other rates, and. ultimately, prac tballv nil rates throughout the whole country, that I do not think It wise to confer the power on the Interstate Commerce <'0,m»,0r on mv other political agency appointed by Presi ; ",Vn? ) ,--ye]:. or by any other President, un- SS ttcan be shown that there is no other way ;■ ",,iv the evils that are complained of , and ;, not think any such thing can be shown.

No one was hurt by the explosion. Harry -T. Morgan, n private detective, who was Btanding on the corner when the explosion occurred, immediately turned in an alarm. He then went Into the building and warned thft tenants. As he reached the third floor there was a se.-ond explosion, which added to the consternation or those in the building:. The first explosion, which took place at the fith-ave entrance, hurled the ponderous stone steps which are fully ten feet long, far out onto the- sidewalk, while the second one tore tht- iron steps leading to the first floor from their of the East Blst-st. station, hurried bis reserves to the scene, and they we-re kept busy keeping the crowd which gathered within bounds.

TO FIGHT HARRIMAX. New Western Road To Be Built, De spite Union Pacific's Threat. [By Toipgrarh to The* Tribune.] Rawlins. Wyo., Oct. 13. A great railroad fight is soon to begin in Wyoming. The Union Pacific and the Saratoga and Encampment Railroad are both racing toward the Northwest from Denver. Mr. Mohler. vice-president of the Union Pacific, met Mr. Rumsey, secretary of the new road, hero on Tuesday and declared war on the line by say ing that the Union Pacific would parallel It the whole distance. Mr. Rumsey is a wealthy banker here, and says he. is backed by a great financial organisation of New-York which is against HarrtmaiL The Union Pacific has refused to grant favor able freight rates to the new line on Its con struction materials, and an appeal will be 'made to the Interstate Commerce Commission to force equitable rates. From the statements of Mohler and Rumsey both roads are planning to build as far into the Northwest as Seattle. "GRAFT IX RAILROADS." M. A. Knapp. Speaking at Cornell, Makes Startling Suggestion. Ithaca, N. V., Oct. 12. Martin A. Knapp. chair man of the Interstate Commerce Commisfion, de livered a lecture on the subject of "(»overnment Regulation of Railroad Rates" before under graduates of Cornell University to-day. He said that it was necessary In the nature of the BOdal <>nl"!' of things to kf*p free the means of communication of th< country, and thai it was the aim <>f the Interstate Commerce commission to . : :. t ■ • Lgea inising from private coni petltlon, and at the same time procure for all a llity of rsifes.

Many Members of Organization Will Support Republican Candidate. William M. Tvins. the Republican candidate for Mayor, will have the support of the Citizens" Tnion in fact, if not in name, and h» may have the declared support of the organization. There is to be a meeting of the executive com mittee on Monday night, and there is a well de fined idea in the minds of many of the members of the committee that it would be a good thing to make a declaration in favor of a man of the standing and calibre of Mr. Ivins. This meeting is primarily to consider the candidacy of District Attorney Jerome, the district tickets and the work to be done for Mr. Jerome and the district candidates, but it is not at all unlikely that the committee will go on record with regard to Mr. Ivins. Certainly there will be some strong words said In his favor at the Monday night meeting. Since the failure of fusion, work has been slow at the Citizens Union headquarters in T'nlon Square, anrl the office force has keen shy. As one district candidate who called up by tele phone yesterday was told: "We have plenty of time up here now. and if you will let us know what you want, probably we can put some of our unemployed office ma chinery at your service." But the nomination of Mr. Ivins has made con siderable of a change in the attitude of the lead ers. They have not got together since the nom iation was made, but they have been talking with one another, and there is a definite idea that the "Cits" ought to get behind Ivins and boost him for all they are worth. McClellan sentiment is very shy in the Citi zens. Union. There are a few who will vote for him because he is a nice young man, but they are few and far between. George Haven Put nam well expressed the general sentiment re garding him in the Citizens Union. "YELLOW DOG" BEHIND M'CLELLA>\ "Mr. McClellan is a well appearing young man with good Intentions and personally honest," ho said. "But they can't hide their 'yellow dog* ticket behind his frock coat. The nomination of McGowan was a disgrace. It showed either that McClellan has no Influence with his organization or that he has not the courage to use it. If he | 9 elected we will see the real meaning of his nomination when he is put up for Governor, and the real Tammany lifts its head in his trail." Dr. E. R. I-. Gould. ex-City Chamberlain, added his meed of condemnation. "I was taught by Abram Hewitt." he said. "that th<= Tammany smirch can never be lost. Once a man becomes a member of Tammany Hall he remains its servant as long as the con nection lasts. Mr. McClellan presents a nice appearance, but the smirch of Tammany is there. He has his eye on the Governor's chair, he wants the influence of Tammany, and you may depend on it that he will do nothing to Interfere with the will of the organization. He is its servant and he will remain so." •As for Mr. Ivins," continued Mr. Gould, "there is a man you may respect and admire. He was one of my predecessors as City Cham berlain He is an upright man. of high stand ing and unimpeachable character. I think he would make an excellent Mayor." So it goes all through the leaders of the Citi zens Union. "You know," said one of them, "that wo have put no candidate, for Mayor in the field, and we are not going to, but you may take it from me that the. strength of the or ganization will go to Mr. Ivins. The McClellan sentiment is so small as not to be worth con sidering. It does not count. He Is looked on as a man who presents a respectable, gentle manly appearance a* Mayor, but behind him the Tiger is unmistakably seen. He cannot gain support or recognition from the Citizens Union. "Mr Ivlns on the other hand, Is a man of the most eminent respectability and highest char acter He appeals to all men who have the good' >f the city at heart, and he will have the votes of the Citizens Union behind him. Among those most lavish in their praise of Mr I in- is Isaac N. SeHgman. "I shall vote tor ifrMns," he said yesterday. "I *«ye him for years. He He is man of h.gh Samcter and high purpose He is an edm^d; cuftured gentleman, and I do not believe that he Js«2e next Monday night and we may do some- Mr* 'Knnan expressed much pleasure in McSeUan sentiment in the organization. he paid. "It Is unimportant." OBBORNB NOT IN FAVOR, The nomination of James W. Osborne for Dis trict Attorney has not done the Tammany ticket any good with the citizens Union either. It is in line with the rest of the Tammany nomina tions they say. Most of the leaders contented themselves with a lifting of the eyebrows and a ■Drugging of the shoulders when Mr. osborne-8 name was mentioned. And they seemed equally unimpressed with the prospects of 'he Municipal Ownership league An energetic but small minority of the union has gone over to Mr. Hearst, nnd it was remarked that most of the nominating speeches Mayor^according to declared Citizens I nion in tention. MR. IVINS REBUKES C. U. Refuses to Accept Dictation as to Jerome's Candidacy. Some of the radical members of the Citizens Union made a desperate attempt yesterday afternoon to fore* District Attorney Jerome down William M. Ivtas's throat and compel him to try tojnake the Republican County Conven tion aroept Mr Jerome :>s Its candidate for District Attorney. Th.' <its" found Mr. Ivins as firm and unyielding v he later declared ha h to the convention that the "grafters" would flinl him. A committee from the Citizens Union went to Mr. ivjis yesterday and demanded that he compel the acceptance of Mr. Jerome by the Republican party. They put the indorsement of Jerome as the prl.e of Citizens Union sup port for Mr. Ivins. Th«\ said to him that he must go to the conference of the county com mittee and compel the committee to put Mr. Jerome on the slate for District Attorney.

WANTS CITY OWNERSHIP Ivhs's Declaration of Principles Wins Laud 'Applause. The Republican County Convention, at th« Murray Hill Lyceum last nijfht. by a vote of 270 to 9 nominated ex- Magistrate Charles A. Flammer for District Attorney. The nine vote« on roll call w«»re cast for District Attorney Jerome. Robert Kelley Prentice, of the 24th District. nominated Mr. Jerome for District Attorney m a well worded speech, after Mr. Flammer had been nominated by Abraham Gruber. At first it seemed as if t"here might be a large vote for Jerome, as Thp applause that greeted the men tion of hi* name was generous and enthusiast k\ On the roll call only nine scattering votes wen cast for him. The. nominations are shown at the head of this column. The other Intensely interesting feature of th« convention was a speech from William M. [vfim, the Republican candidate for Mayor. He was greeted with the greatest enthusiasm, and he made a speech that profoundly stirred the dele gates. He declared for muni. ownership and operation of lighting, and as soon as the city ia equipped for It, so that it can arive superior ser vice, he Is in favor of municipal ownership and operation of city railway?. MR. IVIXSS SPEECH. He said the difference between the Hearst men and the Republicans m that the Repub licans believed in progress with order, while the Hearst men believed in progress with disorder. He said that Tammany Hall stood for organized Inefficiency and systematic greed, and he. de clared that he would show before the campaign came to a close that the McClellan administra tion had not in a solitary instance done a credit able large thing, «nd that thers had been a lot of talking that had ended in talking by tha Mayor and his heads of departments. Mr. Tvins said that he would not take dictation from any boss if elected, and he would not try to bos» any one. Mr. Ivins said that his speech last night was in lieu of * letter of acceptance. It was as follows: Mr Chairman and I>elegat«s: I find myself". I assure you. in a moot unexpected position "■\Vht»n I took th« steamer a week ago from Liverpool for this city, the thing furthest from my mimi was the possibility that I would soon, be involved in a great political struggle, a struggle. I assure you. that will be waged for the preserva tion of this municipality against an organized sys tem Of rif-predatlon. ( Applause.) When the committee asked me to accept a nom ination for Mayor -a nomination that came to m» absolutely unsought ! unhesitatingly answwedi yes (Applause.) On accepting that nomination, I said to those gentlemen that I would a little later communicate with them ir. h more formal way through a letter of acceptance setting forth my views of the Issues of the present campaign. In lieu of that letter I am £"ing to ask the gentlemen's permission to us© this opportunity to giv*» from this platform my reasons for accepting the nomination. F, rS ;t"l never have known any boss. and. God helping me. 1 never will know any boss. I hay» always been my own boss, anil I will continue to be my own hoss. If I am elected Mayor, there to no man on earth whose «1 : ■ tat" I will obey. On tha other hand, there is no man to whom I will not lis ten if h<- has any suggestion with reference to legitimate public business.
