A familiar and charming, and, it may bo
i added, a plotaresquo character has been ro-
, moved from tho activity that inspired hlm.br
the death of Bamnel Wilkeson. which oo-
earred last renins at his home In this city.
Bine his retirement from duty as Bocretniy of
the Northern Faclflo Itallroad Company on
Oct. 17, Mr. Wllkeson's boalth. which had boeu
,1 far from robust for several months prior to
mj that event, had yteldod Terr rapidly. Ills
TU physical system began some weeks ago to
show the offects of tho lndomltablo onergy
J that was his most salient characteristic. Tho
7 weakness that betrayed oxhaueUon of Tllal
M feres was most pronounced In bis heart; and
J it Is no wonder it was the first" to give way. Its
sympathies wore bo keen, strong, and lasting.
To the present generation in Wall street, and
to an extent elsewhere. Mr. Wilkeson was best
known in his official corporato capacity. But
if he could now choose whatever of distinction
Jt may be accorded him. hs would unhesitatingly
W and with justifiable pride oloct to bo ranked as
I a newspaper man. He mora than loved to ud-
I dress the aadlenco of millions that oan be
J reached In only one way. that is. through the
Ma dally newspaper. He fairly rovollod In appeal-
r Ing to that audience, ospoolally the audlenco
1 that, alive to tho possibilities of existence,
stretobes Its hands ont eagerly overy
morning for Tub Bon. Few mon had
a better right to a pen, or to tho liberty to use
It, than Mr. Wllkoson. In his hand it fulfilled
all the conditions of Blchelleu's famous apos
trophe. As occasion or the subject required,
bo could touoh playfully or tenderly with it; bo
. . could use it diplomatically or guide it as dl-
W rectly to tho point as the arrow of a savage:
but his delight was to pour his soul out through
the tips of his Sogers, and then tho work tbat
eventually became Bun light, whotbor It wub
descriptive argument or.denunclatlon. was to
the highest dogree masterly.
The story of his life cannot, perhaps, be bet
ter told than by the records of the corporation
Iin whose service he spent the best as wall as
the last years of bis llfo. Tho history or the
Northers Paciflo Bolirood Company, compiled
soon'ofter the completion of the rood by E. V.
Bmolley. contains this sketch:
"Bamnel Wllkoson was 52 years old when he
was chosen Secretary of the Northern Paotflo
Railroad Company. He was born in Buffalo In
1817. graduated from Union College, was edu
cated to the bar under Daniel Cady. ihw tradi
tional great lawyer of the Btateof New York,
and In 1810 admitted to practlso a profession
from which he was always turning aside to
write for a newspaper. He was born a journal
ist His boyhood mates recall tho weekly pa
) per. written with a pen. which ho published
overy Saturday in Amos Smith's grammar
f school in New Haven, Conn. It was but a ques-
I tlon of tlmo when he would belong to the
I press: and in 1856. in Buffalo, he started a
I radical, liberal dally paper, the Democracv.
I From that paper, on the persuasion of Gov.
J. Seward nud Thurlow Weed, he went to the
"7 A)Danir AVenfno- Journal, buying Thurlow
W weeds and George Dawson's Interests, and
g editing it as principal ownor. His health
I gave way in the second yoar of his
1 work In Albany, and ho was compelled
I to sell out and go into utter Idleness.
A year and a half of rest gave him
II tho heart to accept an invitation from Horace
Greeley to oomo on the editorial Htaff of tho
Ano York Tribune. As the editorial writer and
I the day editor, he worked on this great paper
I till after tho rebellion broke out und otter the
I On to Jtlchmondl" revolution had made its
changes in tho 2Wbune'odltoriai organization.
1 This revolution throw out of ofilco Gen. Fitz
I Henry Warren, in charge of tbe caper In Wash-
ington. Mr. Greeley appointed Mr. Wllkoson
m' J 1 ,ue Place. He had charge t the 'Jribune
bureau In Washington till the olose of tho war,
if with an interval of one year's service on tho
I Arte York Timet. This intorvol was Induced
1 by a natural rage at Mr. Greeley's balling Jet-
I ferson Davis.
I " Two sons and six nephews In the army of
the Potomac all In the line, gave Mr. Wilkeson
I a constant personal attraction to tho war.
Choosing the times of groat military move-
monisnna patties for aDsonce from Ma trust In
I Washington, he often volunteered' to do tho
? work of chief war correspondent of tho Tribune
in Mrglnla. nnd wrote from tho fluid letters
that gave tho writer fame and have served for
" While in tho servlco of tbe Tribune, at the
special reuuest of Jay Cooke, tbe Government's
fiscal agent Mr. Greeley detacbed Wilkeson to
aid the sale of tbe war loans of 0-20. HMO. and
7-30 bonds. He did this by UBlngnenrly all the
newspapers of the United Slates and employ
ing liberally tbe Associated Press and tele
graph. It was tbe only tlmo in tbe history of
tho country that so vast an agenoy to popular
ize and accomplish a publlo measure was com
Imitted to tbo bands of ono man. Before this,
and way back in 1634, Gov. Seward, then in his
political primo as the iladlcal leader
in the United States Renate, applied
to Mr. Wilkeson to block , out a
speech for him oi a subject he
frankly confessed he knew nothing about, and
'41' concerning a country then unknown to the
Government aud. among whito men. known
only to fur traders and trappers a practicable
route for a paying railroad across the contlnon t
to tho Pacific Ocean. His study of this now
theme and preparation of the speeoh so im
pressed Mr. Wllkeson's leason and imagina
tion that, when iln Doaember, 18CH. the ageing
or tbe owners of tbe Northern Paclllo itallroad
charter, then applicants to Congress for a
money subsidy, applied to him for belp la a
I , crisis, of .their, affairs, bo easily con-
' sented, and. without intending to do so.
tied himself tor life to their enterprise, hennte
bill, No. 889. to susldlze the Northern Paciflo
and other transcontinental roods, had
been considered In committee, and was to be
favorably reported by a largo minority of Its
members, Tbe hostile lnflueoco of rival lines
was sufficient to give rise to an advene and
most damaging distent by tbe majority of the
committee, designed to anticipate and nullify
the recommendation of the majority. The
servloe Mr. Wilkeson was begged to render
was to write a report for tho minority to ao-
company the bill they were to recommend, and,
V ' In it, to overthrow tbe statements and conclu
sions of the minority. The, result was the
lengthy Senate Report 319, third sosslon. For
tieth Congress. It was signed by sir members
of the committee of nine, without tho altera
tion of a word, and from that day to this bos
be.fn on authority and manual in Washington.
Mr. Wllkeson's second service to the ueerly
moribund Northern Pacific enterprise was to
induce Jay Cooko to ilf ten to proposals from
me owners of tbe charter to act as tbo fiscal
I?,1!,1,.0' " oompany to provide money to

tbo Northern Paclllo Company when he moved
for tho retirement of his co-laboror. tho oldest
charter officer of tho company, on full par.
Mr. OakoB addressed his associates in the di
rectory ns follows:
" Mr. Wilkeson had a national reputation ns
a. journalist whon Jay Cooke borrowed him of
Horoco Greeloy and away from the KWouh. on
which paper ho was a staff writor. Mr. Cooko
had selected bim to be tho historian of the
rpconnolssanco of tho proposod routo of tho
Northern Paciflo Itallroad, to bo conducted by
the groat engineer, W. Milnor ltoberts, which
reconnolssance Mr. Cooko made tbe condi
tion precedent to any contract with Its pro
moters to ralso tho money to build tho road.
The Immense region through whloh purely
speoulatlvo englnoerlng had marked the line
on tbe map of tho United States was nearly
unknown to the Government: was wholly un
known to tho bold adventurers in this trans
continental undertaking; was well known
only to tho trappers in tho service of the Amer
ican ur Company of St Louis and tho factors
and voraseurs of the Hudson's Bay Com
pany. With Milnor ltoberts. Mr. Wilkeson
traversed tbo routo in wagons, on horseback,
and in canoes, aieoping on tho ground without
covor when In the wilderness; constantly tak
ing notes, even in tho saddle, as did the great
engineer with whom be was associated, and
writing up his memoranda of what he saw and
foresaw in camp at tho end of a day's march,
His work, re port od to Jay Cooko, was prophotlc,
as well as picturesque He predicted tbe Im
mense future of tho Northorn Paciflo Itallroad
as tho pooulator andoivlllzer of a quarter of
our hall of tbo North American continent; and
predloted tho great peouniary reward of tbe
bravo men who should build tbo road. His re
port with Mr. ItobertB's demonstration of the
feasibility of the routo and its commercial
profitableness, decided Mr. Cooko to become
tbe tlscal agent of the Northern Pacific itall
"Mr. Wllkeson's next servlco to this corpora
tion was to popularize, by pamphlet und news
papers, tho whole country hotweon Lake Huio
rlor and Pugot Sound and to correct the na
tional lgnoranco of tho region. The whole of
ltwna mischievously included by our best

mora than any other man, reeducated our na
tion. "Ho was Gl yenrs old whon he was bor
rowed by Jay Cooko from Horaco Greeley. He
was 52 when he accepted tbo Secretaryship of
this company. To-day ho Is in his 73d year.
Ho has been a laborious and dovotod servant
of this corporation for over twenty-ono years.
His work speaks torltself. In prominent jour

Mr. Wilkeson was of Scotch Covenanter stock
and Scotch-Irish decent His father, whoso
full name he bore, though tho youngest child,
was one of tbe founders of Buffalo, TN. Y. He
built the first harbor there, and that, with bis
personal efforts, resulted In tbo selection of
Dunajo as me ioko terminus or tne trio uanal,
which, by the way. he helped to build. In ap
pearance Mr. Wllkoson was impressive. His
figure was slander but of full botght but It
was. bis face rather than bis physique that
gavo evidence of tbe force that was In him.
Both hair and beard wore pure white; the
one almost always dishevelled, suggestlvo of
a scrimmage, tho othor well trimmed yet
fiatrlarchaL But. striking fiB wore those eat
ings of a handsome face, tbe eyes were tbe
feature tbat one never lost sight of or forgot.
They never faltered In their penetration, and
retained to the very Inst their brilliancy. Even
ob life was leaving him. as it bad been slowly
doing theso many days, he asserted, vowed,
that be would not die. and to have heard the
voice alone one would bao accepted tbo plodgo
he gavo his friends.
In politics Mr. Wilkeson was a Republican
and n partisan. Bo believed in protection ns
strongly as he hatod every phaso of dishonesty.
But. unloss tbeylwero tainted with tbat quality,
he was generous to bis opponents.
Mr. Wilkeson lonves a widow, a daughter of
the late Judgo Cady. and two sons, Samuel. Jr..

woll-known newspaper correspondent, and

A story cornea from Cincinnati that $125,
000 to 1160.000 worth of jewelry belonging to
tho firm of Stern AStorn of this city, which
failed last week, has been sblzed there on an
attachment in a suit by Totten t Totton of
Boston to recover $1,000, and had been released
on paymont of tho claim and hurried across
the rivor Into Kentucky. The Jewelry wob said
to have been In the possession of Jacob Stern
and Josoph Phillips. The despntoh says:
" Deputy Sheriff Cormany found tho trunks
containing the Jewelry at the Palace Hotel, A
big express wagon was backod up In front of
tho door, tho driver of which said ho had In
structions to drive ovor to Covington as fast as
bis horse could go. Cormany thon bribed ono
of tho omployoos, who locatod the trunks.
Cormany took possession of them and waited
until tho arrival of tha supposod ownors. They
showed up In tho persons of Jaaob Storn, one
of the firm, and Phillips, his salesman, cor
many served them with the papers and started
to lonvo with tho trunks. Both men, howover,
jnmnod on Cormany and tried to tako tbo
trunks by forco. Tbo officer, howover. stood
them off with his hand on his hip pocket until
an oxproBsman could remove the trunks to the
Shorlirs offlce. whore they wore locked up
in a vault After the goods had been In
possession of the Bhoriff about an hour
btern aud Phillips showed up at tbe ofilco
and paid tho claim, and tho trunks wero re
leased. Storn opened tbe trunks, which wero
found to contain nothing but loose diamonds
nnd other stones and Jewelry uf tho flnost kind.
There wore over a hatful of looso diamonds,
twlco as many rubles, emeralds, and othor
precious stones, nnd some very tine jewelry.
As Storn closed and locked tho trunks he re
marked: "'Those are worth nearly 1150,000.'
The trunks woro loadod Into an express
wagon, and the driver was Instructed to put
life In his horse and moko for the Little Miami
depot, where Storn and his trunks full of jew
els left for Kentucky."
Here in New York Mr. Haysof Hays A Groon
baum, counsolfor tho creditors who attaahed
the firm's property here, said last night that
Jacob Stern was not a member of the firm, but
only a salesman, said to be related to tbo part
ners Josoph and tilmon Stern. Ho was trav
elling whon the firm railed, and had a case of
samples worth probably something like f 10.

Eight thousand barrels of bocr got looso
in tho streets of the upper part of Newark

which startled ovorybody In tho neighborhood,

ot Banktn street Pooplo living in the
neighborhood thought that tho brew

their houses in terror. Many years ago. when
this was .Ehrbalt's brewery ono of its boilers
burst nnd wreoked several dwellings besides
demolishing a part of the brewery. Old roi-l-donts
remoubor this incident and it increased
Un reaching the street tbey were nearly suf
focated by the stilling fumesofammoula escap

to the cause of tho explosion. The part or tbe
brewery In which tho calamity ooourred was
used lor "resting" and fermenting beer, and
the pipes ot tbe ice machine traversed all three

building. The walls of the building wore sprung
and ibe floors so loosened as to make thorn
dangerous to use. The building was erected
four years ngo to accommoduto tbe Ico ma

tho building that was not wrecked, but It was
flooded with beer, and tho engineer had dltll

The Fearful Danaerthnt Hans Over V
Coronor Messomer superintended yester
day an autopsy on tbo remains of Henry Harris,
the young man who was killed by electricity on
Saturday night while ho was moving a show
caso In front ot Barnard Callan's store, 67S
Eighth avenue. Tbe examination was mads
by Deouty Coroners Donlln anil Jenkins nml
several physicians In prlvato practice. Tboy
found that the palm ana fingers of Harris's loft
hand had beon soveroly burnod, and tbat tho
electrlo current passing to tho trunk through
tho arm, had continued down tho loft eldo and
leg and had passed out through tho left foot
There was a hole In tho solo of tbo left shoo as
largo as a dlmo through whloh the current had
passod to the ground. All tbo organs of tbo
body were normal, and tho physicians docldod
without hesitation or disagreement tbat (death
had been the diroot rosultof tho aloctrlo shock.
Tho date of tho lnauost hns not beon fixed.
Tho funeral will be to-day ut 10:30 at tho young
man's lato rosldouco, 319 Wost Forty-Ilfth
Tho very lamp that killed ITarria won burn
ing last night and noarly killed anothorman.
This time, instead of a clerk who knew noth
ing ot tho danger, tho victim was an expert
eont by Coroner Messomor to measure tho
current that scotched him. Only two of tho
lights in front of Callan's were burning. The
one that killed Harris Is in fi ont of the south
entrance on Eighth avenue. A policoman has
been dotallod at tho rerjuost of Coroner Mos
semor to see that it comes unaltered into tho
Coroner's hands, and ho was pacing back and
forth, occasionally stopping to answer tbo
often-repeated quostlon of the passors, "Is
this the lamp that killed a man?" There was
no emtril nrannrl tha nlnrm until RViniira-qn
Then began some curious doings that attract
ed notice and kept the sidewalk jammed for
more than half an hour.
Coroner Mossemer had ordered a tost mad
of tho Btrength and voltago of the current
which killod Harris. Dr. Thomas Killlleaaod
Export Cbarlos F. Honrlah wero deputed to
mako the tests, and it was tholr doings which
drew the crowd. Thoy had with thorn four or
five Columbia Colloce lads, and thoso brought
boxoB containing instruments. A stepladder
and two dry goods boxes completed tho outfit
One box was usod to hold down a lead plate as
big as a man's hand, in oloso contact with tho
iron sidewalk plate, which Harris stood
on when he was killed. An ampere
moter nnd a Wheatstono bridge were usod.
At the lump tho connection was made by clip
ping the wire on to the lower carbon, tho end
of which protruded about two inches. Mr.
Henrlon had mado this rat and. with tho Irco
end of tho wire Iu his hand, be stopped off tho
ladder to fasten the wire to the Wheatstono
bridge. Ho stoppod dlreotly on tho iron Plato
which proved fatal to Harris, nnd on the lu
stanl u great flash of lire burst from bis hand.
Involuntnrilr he throw his hand down nnd
sprang backward. The movement pulled tho
clip off tbo carbon and broko tho current Mr.
Henrich's band was burned and he iolt tbe
shock ullot or.
"Iwas a fooL"be said, "to step on that
plate. A little more and it would hnvo killed
mo." The box was moved to the Hogging after
that The results ot tbe tests will not be mado
known until tbe inquest.
Tbe ro is no need to speculate as to bow tha
current got out of tho lamp into
the metal frame of the show case.
Tho lamp is, ono of a pattern known
as out-of-door lamps, and an electrician said
yesterday that no attempt is made to insulato
the fiumos or thorn, nnd that tbero are thou
sands ot them swinging ovor tho sidewalks.
As lor tbe need of a speclllo second ground
connection to mnke a contact with a high
tension electric wire fatal, the export said:

lonkags along a line toglto a shock, and usu
ally onougb to kill a man if tbe currant is short
ciroulted. Tbe putting of tho wires in sub
ways will Increase tbe risk or leaks. What on
an aerial wire would bu only nn abrasion of
tbe insulation would make a leak in the sub
way, and a lot ol these would muke a perfoct
Two electricians sot out early yesterday to
trace the fatal wire from ond to end of tho cir
cuit and locato the primary 'grounding." Ono
was sent by the Consolidated Bloctrio Light
Company nnd the other by the Board of Elec
trical Control. In advance of their report Com
missioner Moss of tbe Board characterized as
ridiculous thn claim of tbo Brush people tbat
tbo grounding occurred in the Fourteenth
" I don't believe It is possible." he said. " Tho
subways are all right. Our Inspector who wont

that the lamps yesterday wero only 100 Inches
from tho sidewalk, and that this was higher
than they bad been on Sunduv, on whloh day
the company bod eluvntod tbem somewhat
Tho inspector also found tbat tho lamps were
supplloa by ' Underwriters' wire, n wire abso
lutely forbidden by tho Board In Bute 22."
The ofllcors of tho Brush Company declined
to talk further yesterday, on the plen that It
would be Improper before tho Coroner's In

Mr. Bowers said tbat no Intorforence wns

The nulsnnoo was oractlcally admitted, and It
was the right of any pnsser by and tho duty ot
tho city to remove tho dangerous wires. Tbe
