When Assistant Dlttrlct Attorney Frank
Lloyd unlocked tbo door of tho flat houso where
ha Uvea, at 310 West Fifty-eighth atreet, on
Monday night, ho aavr a man rolling up the car
pot of tho hall.
It was 7:30 o'clock and Mr. Lloyd mil hungry.
A few minutes beforo, when ho parted with hit
friend, lUvlnsky, he Bald:
"Morrlo, I'll have to leave you; I'm to hungry
I could eat a door mat. I'll hurry homo to dinner
and eat everything In sight. I'll leave nothing
but the carpet."
ftn ruhatnir Intn hm liall Mp. T.1avA saw thu
man who did not Intend to leave him that car
pet to eat.
lie was a big felloTT, broad shouldered, and
nearly six feet tall. Mr. Lloyd measures feet
74 Inches. Although a email man he has a
great mind. What he lacks physically he
possesses mentally. lie Is diplomatic Bo vr hen
he saw the big man rolling up the hall carpet he
said:
, W "What are you going to do vrlth It r
PUB "Bring it down to Stewart's in Twentjr-thlrd
J 1 street and have it cleaned," said the big man, as
IB ho kept on rolling up the carpet.
"Why don't tho Janitor take it npt" said
fl Lloyd, who now saw visions of burglars as he
looked back In the ball from which a carpet had
HJ been stolen a month ago.
I "The Janitor la sick." said the big man, aa he
proceeded to tie up the roll of oarpot.
Hj " Ho will be," thought Mr. Lloyd, recollecting
the Janitor's illness on a previous carpet oo-
caslon.
J " How did you get in I" said Mr. Lloyd.
" Twigged th' hal' bell," replied the big fellow.
" Hal Bell is a District Attorney, like myself,"
H thought Mr. Lloyd, " and he's too bright to bo
H twigged." Bo Mr. Lloyd said:
HJ "I see you'r English by your accent. Tou
H talk of twigging Hal Bolls; but Hal's a friend ot
H mine; that's a Joke."
H "Hal bat hal" laughed the big fellow.
P "Would you mind 'oldlng the bloomln door
K hopon while I carry hout the carpet t"
A "Why, that's do troublo to me." said Lloyd,
ft w ho is the essonce of politeness.
H So llttlo Mr. Lloyd held open the door while
9J the big fellow carried out tho carpet on his
HI shoulder.
I " Where's your wagon 1" asked Lloyd, follow-
1 Ing the big man out on the sidewalk.
J '"Down tho road a bit," answered the big fel-
""Well, we'll have a ball," said Lloyd; "what
do tou think I" ...
M "I'm willln," said the big man.
I So thoy walked over to Eighth avenue and
H stopped in Rclsonloebcr's. The bit; follow car-
rleu the big roll of carpet on his shoulder and
B H tue littlo man carried a big roll ot bills in his
M H pocket. The big man found after awhile that
hta load was Retting heavy. So be kopt taking
Hi H cigars. The little man also took cigars, and then
H theystarted to walk downtown togother.
HI "There's not a cop In sight, and I'vo walked
half a mile." thought the little man, and the big
min also thought about the cops who were not
H in sight. So the only thing to find was another
W saloon. This was an easy task. The big man
took big "hookers," while llttlo Mr. Lloyd took
M llttlo rpromenades," which were smaller than
Coney Island "collars."
m " I know a place where we 11 get better stuff
than this," said Mr. Lloyd, and the two men
M walked to the corner of Fifty-third street. Both
men evidently believed by this time that there was
I I no such thing as a polloomrji in New York. The
big man felt that the roll he carried on his shoul-
derwas getting bigger and heavier. The llttlo
man felt that the roll in his pocket was getting
H smaller and lighter. Both again thought of cops.
Theblgmanieemedawfullynorvous.lmtnotneur
as nervous aa the little man. In the Kltty-thlrd
H street saloon the big man Increased the size of
H H his " bookers" and tho little man poured out less
I in his glass, so that both felt like apologizing to
H H the bartender, one for taking too much, the other
i for taking too little.
"Ain't that roll ot carpet getting hearyt"
1 asked Mr. Lloyd.
" faam'f t ain't," admitted tho big fellow.
, "It's too far to carry that carpet down to
K Twonty-thlrd street," continued Mr. Lloyd.
MJ' "Let us walk up again and have another at
H Relsenweber's."
Bo they walked up again.
Mr. Lloyd was now convinced that Oommls-
sloner Parker had ordered a strlko among the
H oops.
So more was added to the big man's load until
H hestaggered under the roll on his shoulder.
H The little man grew more nervous and felt the
roll in his pocket. It was becoming smaller.
H After they had "a few moro" the big man said
he could carry the carpet no longer, lie wanted
to leave it in a saloon.
"Goods turn serves 'nothcr.ho said; "I'll
leave sis carpetr-hlc here, where got smother
load: eh, me boy t"
" Now," said tho little man, " take it back and
throw it in tho basement of our house until to
ll morrow."
"Ooodidea," remarked the big fellow, who
was then led back to the West Fifty-eighth
street house, whore ho dropped the carpet in the
H area.
f v But there was still no sign of a cop, and Mr.
Lloyd suggested to the big man that they go
over to Ninth avenue and Fifty-ninth street.
H " We'll get some genuine stuff there," he said.
"Did you ever tackle Antediluvian I"
"No, but I'm willln'." answered the pig man.
. " One more 'n that's ail, eh I"
" That's all," said Mr. Lloyd.
9 Around to Fifty-ninth street and down to
Ninth avenue walked the big and little man, arm
in arm, alscusslng politics.
"Oh, for a cop, sighed Mr. Lloyd.
At Fifty-ninth atreet and Ninth avenue they
had another and another and a third.
"Let us go over and have a nightcap at
Relsenwebers," finally said Lloyd, and the big
man answered:
"I'm willln'; good idea, nightcap."
K And they walked back to Eighth avenne.
b "Oh, for half a cop, or even a button," sighed
I Lloyd. Then be decided to stop a passerby and
H explained that he had a thief In tow and wanted
K a policeman. He stopped many, but every one of
P them believed he was an escaped lunatlo and
f B hurrlod to get away from htm. Finally, one
B .- " man, who knew the Assistant District Attorney,
Wk reoognlted tho secret signs and the queer mo-
& tlons made by Mr. Lloyd and started olt for a
m" policeman.
f After the big and little ms n had had " Just one
t more " Policeman Costcllo come running toward
I them.
H "Arrest this fellow," said Lloyd. "He's a
H thief; I've had him in tow for an hour looking
B for a cop, and I'vo almost gone broke buying
I drinks for him."
The big man protested, but was lugged to tho
West Forty-seventh street police station, whero
I he was locKed up for the night on a charge of
H stealing tbo carpet.
H Yesterday when arraigned In tho Yorkvllle
f Police Court tho big man described himself as
H Albert Trovers Wellington, '23 years old. Ho
I admitted taking tho carpet out of the ball, but
P said the Janitor had ordered him to take it to
have it tleanod. Mr. Lloyd, who appeared as
H complainant, produred the Janitor in court. The
Janitor said (hat Wellington had no authority
K. to take the carpet, and that be was a thief.
j Magistrate Brann held Wellington for trial.

The harmony arrangement which was effeeted
between the Second Assembly district factions
In Tammany prior to the January primaries has
been knocked into a cocked hat, and the fight
Is on again between Alderman Blown and his
friends and ex-Police Justice Patrick Diwer.
The first difficulty was encountered at the
first meeting of the District General Committee,
when the Diwer Chairman, Daniel J. Reardon,
declared the meeting adjourned after the defeat
of a motion to have the regular meetings of the
committee at the ctub house of the P. Diwer
Association, 69 Madison street. Tho Diwer
mon retired with Chairman Reardon, but the
Ilrown factlonisu remained; the Vice-chairman
took the chair, and 220 Park row was named as
the regular meeting placo.
The next movo of the Diwer men was the
sending of a notice Blamed hv Chairman Itnarrinn
to, " members flf the District General Com
mittee directing them not to attond any meet
ings called to be held at 230 Park row. It was
said yesterday that Reardon also served notice
on the district leader, Francis J. O'Connor, not
to Issue a call for a meeting In his (the Chair
man s) name, or he might be prosecuted. This
warning did not deter Leader O Connor from call
IP.8 jn)eetlng of the committee for last Monday.
The Dlwerltes refused to attond. Among the
absentees wore Chairman Reardon and Secretary
John Gauhan, who got those places under the
harmonr arrangement. As it was evident that
these officers would not act unless Mr. Dlvvor's
club house was chosen for district headquarters,
the Brown mon prpceedod to depose thorn.
Michael J. Deery, a Brown man, was tironiotod
from Vice-Chalrman to be Chairman. Jeremiah
t) Connor, another Brown man, waa chosen Vioo
Chairman, and Daniel Augustine, knottier of the
"m.wrUiRctlonlts, was put in Gaughan a place.
The Dlvvcr factlonists will contest the leyallty
of the aotlon of the committee before the Execu
tive Committee In Fourteenth street. It Is said,
hut it Is not considered probablo that they will
be encouraged thore.

Jersey City DemeemU Going Ahead In Spite or
the New Law Republicans Won't Act.
The passage of the bill abolishing spring elec
tions in cities of tbo first class in New Jersey
will not prevent the Democrats of Jersey City
from holding an election on April 13. Allan
McDcrmott and Senator Daly have advised
Leader Robert Davis and the Democratic com
mittee that the new law Is unconstitutional.
Tho Board of Aldermen, with a large Demo
cratic majority, has control of the election ma
chinery, and has already made arrangements
for holding the election. The notice of registry
and election has beon advertised, and yesterday
was tho first day for registration. Ail the
registry places wero open, the election
boards on duty, and a largo number ot names
were registered, The Democratlo primaries
will be held to-morrow and the candidates nom
inated whether Gov. Griggs signs the bill or not.
The candidates who probably will be nomlnatod
are Edward Hoos for Mayor, William F. Mldd
llge for Alderman at Large, Anthony llauckand
James 8. Nolan for Street and Water Commis
sioners, and James Burns, Ambrose Gulton,
William G. Hawotb, William J. Calnon. Charles
Maxwell. Richard Cummlngs, Uonry Gotthardt,
Frank King, Frank A. Follln, Nathaniel H.
Smith, Rudolph K. Uartmon, and John K. Boldt
for Aldermen.
The Republicans will not bold any primaries,
make any nominations, or take any part in tho
election. An application may be made to tho
courts to compel them to hold an election.
Robert Davis says that no matter what the Re
publicans may do the Democrats will proceed
with the election in tbo regular form, elect their
candidates, and then resort to tho courts to
have the officers olected lnstallod. It Is not
probable that any decision will be obtained from
tho courts beforo Nov. 2, the date fixed for the
election under the new law If Gov. Griggs signs
the bill.

Four of Thorn Indorsed by tbe Organisation
for Federal Offices.
The Exccutl vo Committee of the Republican
organization in Brooklyn, attor several confer
ences, has finally decided on its candidates tor
sorno of tho Federal offices soon to be distributed
by the now Administration. Robert A. Sharkey
of the Twenty-fifth ward has been indorsed for
Colloctor of Internal Revenue, Hugo Uirsch of
tho Third want for United States District At
torney, Alderman Charles J. Huubert of the
Twenty-seventh ward for United States Marshal,
nnd E. 8. Fowler of the Twentyecond ward for
Appraiser of tho Port. The candidates are all
closely Identified with tho Worth faction, and
nro too leaders In their respective ballwlcks.
It is expected that they all hav e the support of
Senator Piatt. Congressmen Fisher, Bonnett,
and Howe havo also promised to look out for
their interests at Washington. No candidate
for the Fottmattershlp has been named, as it is
understood that Postmaster Sullivan, who was
a pronounced sound-money Democrat in the late
campaign, will be allowed to serve out bis term,
which docs not explro until Sentember.
The WlUla faction will also name candidates
for the various Federal offices in Brooklyn, and
will look to Congressman Francis H. Wilson to
help them along in Washington. Ex-Supervisor-at-Large
Thomas Fitchle, who made tho mem
orable MoKinley demonstration in the State
Convention, expects to get some nice place in
the scramble.
RICHMOND COUNTY RALZOT3.
Printer Kinoes Demurrer te an Indlotment
Against Ulm Sustained,
The Appsllato Division of the Supremo Court
In Brooklyn has sustained tho demurror to the
indictment of Adolph L. King of Richmond
county charging that he presentod to tho Board
of Supervisors of that county a false and fraudu
lent claim for printing the eloctlon ballots. It
waa alleged that his bill was more than $3,000
In excess of the fair and reasonable value of the
work, and that Mr. King knew this. No special
Brlce had been contracted for. The Appellate
ourt says in the decision:
" Wo do not intend to at all concede the re
spondent's contention that the amount of the
claim presented against a county can under no
circumstances constitute Indictable fraud. All
we decide here is that where the claim Is un
liquidated and not contracted for at any specified
price, or the subject of any statutory provision,
a statement of excessive or exorbitant value un
accompanied by uny false statement of collateral
Lircumsiunces doos not constitute an indictable
ollcnco."

More Soldiers Reeded In the Philippines, and aa
Spain Can't Send Them from Home Tnej
KlnstflerremCnba 1S,000,000 erspaln'a
War Fund Has Bern Stolen on tbe Island,
Havana, March 13. The Spanish army in
Cuba Is. In fact, not so strong as the Madrid
Government believes, and the order sent to Gen.
Woyler to withdraw some 10,000 men from the
flold for tho purpose of sending them to the
Philippines has disclosed one ot the biggest
frauds perpetrated by Spanish officials since
Cuba has been under the rulo of Spain.
Fitly per cent., at loost, of all tho losses In the
army, Incurred either In battle or by disease,
has not been reported to the Madrid authorities.
Nevertheless, the pay of tho dead soldiers and
the monoyfor tholr provisions and clothing havo
been regularly charged to the Spanish Govern
ment and pocketed by the cashiers ot the bat
talions, in accordance with an understanding
existing betwoen them and the General Inten
deht of Finances of the Army and the Captain
aonoral. Such Is the actual fact Since Gen. Weyler
landed In Cuba, thirteen months ago, It is es
timated that more than 91o,000,000 has been
Btolen In this way from tho troasury out of the
930,000,000 provided for the maintenance ot
the army.
When tho Liberal press of Madrid made Its
energetic campaign against Gen. Woylora few
months ago, this fact was revealed, but the Gov
ernment received such an Indignant protest from
tho Captaln-Goneral that Sefior Canovas himself
was docelvod, and defended Weyler. Some Jour
nalists were arrested, but tho accused Captain
Gonerol remained In office. Canovas undoubt
edly believed In Woyler's good faith.
In face of the presont critical situation in the
Philippines and the Impossibility of the Govern
ment sending more troops to the archipelago
from home, Sefior Canovas concelvod the idea
that 15,000 men could easily be spared from
Cuba if the regular army, aa reported by Wey
ler, was 160,000 strong. An anpeal to the
patriotism of tbe Spanish residents of Cuba
might bo made, and more than 20,000 volunteers
would surely be obtained from the towns to re
place the 13,000 troops who were to be with
draw n.
But, in fact, the regular soldiers of 8paln In
Cuba number little more than 100,000 able
bodied mon. All tho others are cither sick In
the hospitals or havo been killed by tho insur
gents or by disease. To withdraw 10,000 men
under theso circumstances, when the vitality of
tho revolution Is aa great as ever, would be
practically to pronounce the abandonment of
the island.
What could Weyler do In view ot these ex
plicit orders from Madrid! Ho Is not tho man
to confess his peculations. So he began the con
centration of the troops at tho Cuban seaports.
The Government at Madrid nevertheless was
informed by othors ot tho real situation, and
then excited and vigorous despatches began to
pass between Madrid and Havana, which made
it necessary for Weyler to come to the capital
from Placctos In Santa Clara province.
Tho revelations were very embarrassing for
Sefior Canovas, for thoy placed tho Spanish
Government In tho dilemma ot having to choose
betwoen Cuba and tho Philippines, as has
already been reported in Tun Sun. Tho recent
great defeats of tho Spaniards in the archi
pelago added to the gravity of the situation. It
is absolutely necessary to send more soldiers to
Manila. It Is absolutely impossible to supply
them from Spain. Cuba, therefore, must fur
nish the troops, cost what It may.
Reports prevail that a Cabinet crisis la Im
pending in Spain, but at tho samo time the
friends of Sefior Sagasta say that tho Liberal
party wltl not tako tbo responsibility of tho
Government under the present desporato con
ditions in Spain.
Gen. Gomez, meanwhile, la making a brilliant
campaign in Santa Clara province. He does not
Intend to march furthor to the west until he has
received positive assurances that Gen. Roloff's
expedition has safoly lauded and has met Gen.
Garcia's force. With the artillery and other
munitions brought by RolofT, the army ot Gen.
Gomez will be in better condition to Invade
Matanzas, whero the forces of Gen. Botoncourt
are awaiting it.
A CALL TO SPAIN FOB TROOPS.
90,000 More Soldier Seeded at Once
Manila.
MADniD, March 16. The Archbishop of Manila
has cabled to the authorities here that 20,000
additional troops to reinforce tho Spanish sol
diery in the Philippines are imperatively neces
sary, and that thero should be no delay In for
warding them.
M'KENNA AND TEE DAUNTLESS.
Tbe nature of an Armed Expedition and the
Necessities or tbe Filibuster.
WAaniNQTON, March 10. Tho filibustering
operations between this country and Cuba occu
pied tho attention ot tho Cabinet to day. Attorney-General
McKenna gavo his views on tho
subject of permitting alleged filibustering
steamers to clear for Cuban ports with cargoes
of arms and munitions ot war.
A general discussion followed his remarks.
The Attorney-General bos decldod not to render
an opinion In the case of the steamer Dauntless
until ho can obtain additional facts relating to
the application of her owners to cloar from
Jacksonville with arms and ammunition.
Under ordinary commercial conditions the ap
plication would be granted without question,
but the fact that tho Dauntless or any other ves
sel would be obliged to clear for some Cuban
port held by the Spanish puts a new phase on
the matter. The cargo could not bo landed thero
and tbe vessel would bo solzed. This would
make it necessary for a vessel to attempt to land
the cargo at some point along tbe coast, and In
order to deliver the arms and ammunition to the
Insurgents an urmed force would be necessary.
The knowledge of this raises tho question
whether the men necessary to carry out the
plans made for a filibustering vessel would not
constitute an armed expedition, a clear viola
tion of the law.
The Attorney-General will have to decide
whether the forco likely to be taken on the
Dauntless Is an armed expedition within the
meaning of the law. Permission was given tho
steamer Commodore to clear for a Cuban port
with arms and munitions of war, but the vessel
was wrocked before reaching the Cuban coast.
To Itebulld Rlverhead Jail.
RlVERniAU, L. L, March 10. The Board of

structure, and the new jail will have thlrty-nlno
Eteel cells and a warden's office. Tho cost will
e about 110,000. Tho prisoners will perform
most of the labor of rebuilding.

ELEPHANT TIP MAIMED.
Pslssn Raving Vailed, n Reese Was slipped
Abeut Hts Neck and Be Was Choked.
nniDQBronT, Conn., March la Tip, tbe big
elephant ot the Rarnum It llalloy show, and the
most noted ot the herd, excepting Jumbo nnd
Alice, Is dead. The old elephant was stronglod
to death. Yesterday was the day -set for Tip's
oxecutlon, and cyanldo of potassium waa se
lected as tho means to bring about his end.
J)ut Tip fooled the executioners. He swallowed
"several capsules flllod with tho poison, but still
lived. His death was nocossary. Last season on
several occasions he bocamo unruly and unman
ageable, and injured several keepers. When the
poison fallod to do tho work tho question arose
nstohow his death should bo brought about.
There was talk ot trj tug anothor kind ot poison,
but Keeper George Conklln said:
"Hang It, an elephant has got four stomachs.
When ho gets hold of any tiling like poison ho
tuoks it Into one of Uiese side stomachs Just
to try it. It makes no difference how much
poison you give him; he will keep on chucking it
Into that stomach; and oven it it eats that stom
ach all up, he's got three good ones loft. I tell
you, you can't poison him to death."
Then it was suggested that Tip bo shot, To
this tho keepers objectod. They said it the
bullet did not kill him Instantly Tip might
burst his bonds and mako a furious outbreak.
Tho noise of rifles might also frighten the rest of
tho herd to the stampeding point. Koepor
Conklln then decldeu that ho and Bill Nowman
would tako It upon themselves to despatch tho
elephant. Extra chains were fastened about
Tip's legs. Around his neck a three-Inch hsr. jer
was looped In a sliding noose with a hangman's
knot. To this was fastened a pull and tackle,
and then one hundred men wero placed upon the
line to pull.
When all was ready Conklln gavo the word of
command, and slowly the noose tightened as
Tip's eyes began to bulge. Tighter and tlghtor
the pressure becamo until Tip gave a shriek and
began to struggle desperately to burst his bonds.
Conklln yelled to his mon:
"Pull, pull. Don't loss your heads. Pull for
all you are worth."
The noose became so tlifht that Tip could not
cry out. Then Conklln shoutod to Tip: "Up.
up." The elephant obeyed his keeper and lifted
his trunk high In the nir.
"Now, then," said Conklln to hts men, "pull
all." Tin wound his trunk around tbe hawser
nnd pulled against tho mon, but tho mechanical
contrivance was more powerful than bruto
strength. With a few moro pulls on the rope
Tip was swaying on his feet. After a little he
foil, but still the struggle for life was kept up.
For thirteen minutes the battlo lasted, and then
ho gave up.
Immediately after.death the chains and ropes
wero removed, nnd six big elephants which had
beon Tip's partners nnd had performed with him
In tho ring, dragged the body to tho dissecting
room, whero Prof. Wallace and ten assistants
wero waiting with tholr knives and saws to cut
up the body. Tbe bonos are to be taken to New
Aork to tio mounted for exhibition at the

8TRONO ON TUE TARIFF DILL.'
lie iaye the Proposed Duty on Wool la Tee
Itlsh Had Hoped for Lower Rates,
In the course of a talk with Fire Commis
sioner Sturgls and Subway Commissioner Hess
yesterday morning, Mayor Strong said he was
disappoint od by tho Dlngloy Tariff bill. Ha said
that ho had hoped for a more conservative
measure, with much lower rates in some sched
ules and clnssos, and expressod tho belief that
tho enactment ot a law with exceptionally high
rates may make trouble for tho party in the next
Presidential election. Tho Mayor Is a member
ot the American Protoctlvo Tariff League, and
nlwors has been known as an advocate ot high
tariff. His talk about the Dlnglcy bill was there
fore a surprise when It was published. To a
reporter of The Sun he explained later:
' What 1 meant was that I fear that the tariff
may again bemade a political Issue. I should like
to see a tariff adopted that would remain prac
tically unchanged for at loast twonty Hv o years.
What I said was Inspired especially by tho ool
schedule. Wool has been on tbe freo list. It
nas Doen put. in ine lanrr scneauie at 11 cents
and 12 cents a pound. I should havo preforrcd
to sco It at 7 cents and 8 cents. I do not want to
set my Judgment up against that of the men
who drew tho bill, though. They should know
better than I vvlmt Is needed. I did not
Intend that my criticism should be captious. In
fact it waa merely an expression ot my in
dividual opinion aa to dunger which might
possibly arise from the bill. After all, perbapB,
It would bo better to havo tho next national
campaign on the tariff issue than to have a
repetition of tho free-silver fight. I do, however,
wunt to see the conservative men who Joined us
in the lust fight bound to us, and not driven
away by radical legislation."
Tho Mayor cltod only the wool schedule ns ob
jectionable. Ho said he Is interested in two
mills n hick make worsted yarn, but ho added
that that fact did not lntluenco him In his criti
cism. He said, too, he could sco how a reason
ably high tariff on wool Is likely to help the
West, and, in large measure, allay the agitation
for a bad currency.

years of his llfo were devoted to pursuits In
which he was not qualified to shlno. He was
professor of natural philosophy in the Univer
sity of London tor somo time. Then, in 1811, he
accepted a professorship at the University of
Virginia, at Charlottesville, but did not remain
thoro a year. The students found him occentrlo
and were not respectful, whereupon ho an
nounced that if the disorderly young men In his
class did not behave themselves ho would chal
lenge them to a duel. Upon his return to Eng
land ho became an actuary and was subsequent
ly called to tho bar. lie managed to ruiko a
living In the law, but tho demands upon his time
greatly curtailed his mathematical productivity.
In 1850 ho was appointed professor of mathe
matics at the Royal Military Academy at Wool
wich, but did not suet cod thero. Ho had no gift
for inducting into his science young men who
had not a particle of genius for lc In

was called to the chair of mathematics at Johns
Hopkins University, where, with nolo young

brilliant success of the work, Inspiring tbe class
with his own enthusiasm, and teaohing the
students how to make researches. He estab
lished the American Jou-nal of Mathematics,
which still holds a prominent place in its Held.
In 1883 he returned to hia nnllvo land, having
been electod Savlllan Profesor of Geometry In
the University of Oxford, and he greatly stimu
lated mathematical study and research there.
He waa long regarded as one of tho strongest
and most original of mathematicians. All his
life be was an indefatigable solver of problems,
and ho usually creatod methods specially
adapted to each problem he took up. Ho was
absent minded, and it was not uncommon for
him to lose himself ovon in streets that he dally
frequented.
