NEW YORK, Feb. 19.—New York today
is paying every possible tribute of re
spect to the memory of General Sherman.
The dawn of his funeral day opened bright
and clear. The courts remained closed.
The exchanges closed at noon. General
business was brought almost to a stand
still, and all who could do so ceased their
daily occupation to do honor to the dead
soldier. At an c-arlv hour people began to
assemble in the street opposite the resi
dence of General Sherman. From almost
every house along the street the American
flag floated at half-mast. There were few
visitors in the early hours of the morning.
Only the most intimate friends and a few
old soldiers were admitted, and the latter
were obliged to show certificates that they
had served in the army.
Rev. Thomas Sherman, the eon, whose
arrival was so anxiously awaited, arrived
at the house at 1:30 this morning. Just
after taking an early breakfast with the
family, he took the last look at the re
mains of his father.
A few minutes before 11 o'clock a large
floral shield was received at the house
from the West Foint cadets. The shield
was six feet in height and four feet broad,
and made of white and blue immortelles
and calla lilies.
At It o'clock Secretaries Blaine, Proctor
and Rusk, and Generals O'Brien and
Ewing arrived at the house. President
Harrison would not look upon the remains
of the general. The familyjsent an invita
tion to bim this morning, but the presi
dent kindly replied that lie preferred to
keep with him the remembrance of the
general while alive. He did not wish to
see him in death, when their associations
had been so warm and genial.
At noon every doorstep along Seventy
first street was crowded with interested
spectators, and the windows were filled
with expectant faces. About 12:25 the
caisson, draped in black and drawn by
four horses, was drawn up in front of the
Sherman residence. The horses were
mounted by regulars and army officers
were in charge. Behind the caisson was
an orderly leading a black charger, which
bore the military trappings of the general.
A black velvet covering almost hid the
horse from view, but the boots and saddle
were plainly seen.
The services of prayer began at noon,
and were over at 12:30. Prayers were read
by Rev. Father Sherman. Close to the
casket stood the other son, P. T. Sherman.
In the front parlor were all the other mem
bers of the family. Secretary Blaine and
Mrs. Damrosch. Father Sherman was as
sisted by Rev. Taylor and two ether priests.
Father Sherman, in conducting the sim
ple services, read frem the Scriptures the
passage beginning: "I am the resurrec
tion and the life.'' After this selections
were sung from oratorio of "Elijah."
Father Sherman again read from the
Scriptures, and the "Miserere," from Men
delssohn, was given. Prayer was, offered
by the son, and the services wer concluded
with music. There were about 150 persons
present, the greater number relatives, but
among the friends were Mrs. Grant and
Senator Cameron.
Long before the procession moved, spec
tators began to take positions along the
line of march. Decorations along the
route were not so numerous or so elaborate
as when General Grant was buried, but
nevertheless they were strikingly hand
some and in great profusion. Just about 2
p. m. a troop of the Sixth cavalry formed
to the left of the house in the middle of
the street. Six lieutenants appeared in the
doorway, bearing on their should
ers the casket of the general,
which they placed upon the wait
ing caisson. The members of the
family, friends, invited officials and pall
bearers then took their places in carriages,
and followed by the members of Lafayette
Post, G. A. R.,*formed on either side of the
caisson. The procession then commenced
to move very slowly, as both sides of the
street were crowded with hundreds of car
riages waiting to take their place in line.
Before the arrival of the hour for the
funeral procession to start, carriages con
taining prominent, officials, both military
and civil, arrived at the house. Among
the visitors were George W. Childs, A. J.
Prexel, lliram Hitchcock, Chauncey M.
Depew, ex-Presidents Cleveland and
Hayes, Joseph Choate, Rear Admiral
Braine. General Schofield and Govern
ors Pattison and Bulkeley, with
their staffs. The Senate committee came
in a body, wearing the usual signs of
mourning. and after them the large com
mittee of the House. It was close on 2
o'clock when President Harrison, with
Lieutenant Earnest, his aide-de-camp,
reached the house. Following came the
military, consisting of the military order
ol the Loyal Legion, G. A. R.. cadets and
the National Guard, consisting of the
Sixty-ninth and Twenty-second, the Sev
enth and Twelfth regiments, and the First
and Second batteries of artillery. Behind
these were the Sons of Veterans and civic
organizations, who brought up the rear
of the parade.
Along the line of march from start to
finish was one grand crush, and walking
in the streets was almost an impossibility.
It appeared as if every resident of New
York and the surrounding cities had
turned out to gaze upon the casket that
contained the remains of the great general.
Along the wall of Central park 011 Fifty
ninth street crowds of people were seated,
and at the circle where the column was to
assume definite shape the sea of bobbing
beads was simply indescribable. All along
Fifth avenue a* mass of people lined
the sidewalks, steps and windows, and
the balconies on the thoroughfare were oc
cupied until after 8 o'clock, when the last
dirge of the playing bands went by. The
weather was cold and disagreeable, but
there was no apparent diminution in num
bers in the crowd until the very last. The
grilled old (.rand Army men formed a
striking feature of the procession. Many
ot them walked on crutches.
The caissjon on which rested the bodv
was received everywhere with uncovered
heads, and where the crowd had been
noisy it wa> Instantly hushed when the
object of all this military display ap
proached. On Fifth avenue, from Twenty
hccond to Fourteenth, the crush of peo
ple was so great that the mounted police
had great difficulty in clearing a passage.
At Washington square all except the
regular military escort were dismfssed.
The cai«son.| with this escort, then turned
into Broadway and down to Canal street,
from which point the ferry was soon made.
The gates were thrown open and the cais
son driven aboard the boat, escorted bv
LaFayette Post, under General Vieles. A
few minutes later the funeral party was
aboard, the boat swung ont into the
stream, and the great funeral, the last tri
bute which the metropolisleould pay, was
When the boat reached Jersey City, an-
other throng of thousands of people was
s*®** A. large force of police and the
Fourth regiment of the National Guard of
New Jersey was drawn up between the
ferry entrance and the north end of the
depot, beyond which stood the special
train. The military presented arms, the
colors were lowered, the dram corps
played a dirge, and the church bells tolled
as the ciusson passed from the boat to the
tram. The guard of honor from the New
Jersey National Guard was on hand to ac
company the remains through the state.
The funeral train was made up of seven
c * rß - The remains were conveyed in a
combination car. The other cars were oc
cupied by the guard of honor, the con
gressional committees and the family. The
combination car was festooned Heavily
with black draperies, while the other cars
were less elaborately draped. The train
left Jersey City at 6:45 p. in.
BBOOKI-YS, Feb. 19,-The people of this
city observed the day out of respect to
General Sherman. Flags were displayed
at half-mast on all sides. Many of the
stores were closed, and but little business
was transacted in the courts. The public
schools closed at noon.
ST. Lone, Feb. 19.—The general com
mittee on arrangements for the funeral
ceremonies of General Sherman held a
meeting this morning. The chairman of
the executive committee stated that 2fK)
members of the Missouri general assembly
would take part in the exercises. General
Merritt today received a telegram from
Cincinnati stating that 100 members of the
society of the Army of the Tennessee
would arrive Saturday, and had been as
signed a place with the Loyal Legion, in
accordance with the instructions received
from Washington City. General Merritt
has provided for a guard at the tomb,
which will remain as long as is deemed
necessary. Information has been received
that General Schobeld will be present.
Ihe pallbearers have not yet been named,
bqt will be selected this evening. Gov
ernor Francis said that betweeu 1,000 and
I,'JOOof the Missouri state militia would
join the cortege, and other information in
dicates that it will be one of the largest
pageants ever seen. The following tele

and the streets are in a had condition. It
is hoped that the condition will be im
proved by Saturday. If the weather is
favorable the funeral of General Sherman
will be one of the most imposing pageants
ever seen in the West. AH public build
ings and many business houses and resi
dences are elaborately dressed. This even

Ho Bad Not Been a Communicant of the
Catholic Church for Years.
NEW YORK, Feb. 19. —Rev. Thomas Ew
ing Sherman was seen by a reporter today
touching the subject of General Sherman's
religious belief. He said in a positive way
that may well remove all doubt:
My father was baptized ia the Catholic
cbnrcb, was married in the Catholic church, and
attended the Catholic church until the outbreak
of the civil war. Since then he has not been a
communicant, but nlways said to me: "If
there is any true religion it is the Catholic
religion." A week ago today ray father received
absolution and extreme unction at the bands of
Father Tavlor. He was unconscious a short
time, but this has no bearing, for the sacraments
could be administered to any person whose
mind could be interpreted as desirous of receiv
ing them. I will hold services over his remaina
at 12 o'clock today in the presence of the family.
They will embrace the reading of the regular
funeral service prescribed by the ritual of the
Roman Catholic church.

Lively Experience of the Steamer We*
ladlM at Cornel.
VICTORIA, Feb. 19l [Bpecial.] Th«
steamer West Indian arrived this morn
ing, seventy-two days from Liverpool. 8h«
is to go at once into the trade between this
province and Australia, being the pioneet
ship of the British Colnmbia and Austral*
ian steamship line. During her voyags
she had an exciting experience at Coronel,
where she was detained ten days by Chi I.
ean rebels. During the bombardment of
the town, the steamer being in the line ol
lire, her captain, H. F. Scott, concluded
to move the ship out. He did
so, but was pursued by one of
the rebel war vessels, which fired
three shots at him, two falling astern and
one ahead. He stopped and was boarded
by an armed force, who demanded posses
sion of the powder on board consigned to
the British naval authorities at Ksquimnlt.
They made an effort to take it. but the
captain represented to them that they
alone would have to bear the consequences
of such an act, and ran up the British
colors. The boarders then withdrew and
subsequently apologized, saying that they
had been informed that some of the oppo
site party were on board. The passengers
on tne West Indian had a remarkably
lively time all round, bnt unite in praises
of Captain Scott's coolness and bravery.
Helena Coroner to Investigate Myster-
ious Death of a Swedish Woman.
HELENA, Feb. 19. —[Special.]— Coroner
Rockman just learned today that a young
Swedish woman, named Annie Johnson,
had died suddenly about a week ago, and
had been buried without a certificate. He
called a jury tonight, and tomorrow will
have the body exhumed for the purpose of
investigating. The doctor who was called
at the time of the death waa unable to say
what caused the death. From what the
doctor Mays it is inferred that she was
poisoned, and the coroner's investigation
may reveal whether the drug was adminis
tered by her own handa or by others.
Some of the friends of the dead girl have
found a letter, supposed to have been
written by her, which recites a tale of woe,
and says it was the last letter she would
ever write. If she penned the letter there
is but little doubt but that she committed
suicide. The coroner will make it hot for
those who have failed to comply with the
law in this case.
