The Jurist's Death Momentarily Expected. Many Anxious Inquiries After His Condition. Prssident Harrison and Ex-President Cleveland Among those Most Deeply Affected. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Oct. 11. —Justice Miller ia dying. Up to 1 o'clock this morning the most serious trouble to be combat ted by the physicians was an accumula tion of phlegm in the patient's throat, which, on account of partial paralysis of the organs, could not be removed. This would produce choking which could be relieved only by raising the patient to a sitting position. This effort in every instance produced a parxoysm which was itself highly det rimental to his condition. At about 1 o'clock the paroxysm ceased, and though the sufferer was breathing heavily, he fell into an appar ently peaceful sleep, which lasted throughout the night, but as morning came on, the sleep degenerated into a comatose condition, which constantly increased. He now lies in a state of profound coma, which no doubt will continue to the end. All the members of the supreme court in the city, called once or oftener with their wives during the day. Chief Jus tice Fuller and Mrs. Fuller spent an hour with the family last night, and again today. Mrs. Dimmick called on behalf of Mrs. Harrison to inquire as to the condition of the justice. The mem bers of all the foreign legations, now in town, called during the morning, as did many others of prominence in Washing ton. From 1 o'clock this (Saturday) morn ing, it was evident there was little on which to base any hope of his recovery. The nerves and muscles of his throat were much affected, and all attempts to give the patient nourishment failed, still there were slight evidences of semi consciousness, the justice now and then openingjhis eyes and looking at the at tendants with a gleam of recognition. At daybreak these signs ceased, how ever, and he became totally oblivious of his surroundings. Justice Miller is a man of massive frame, full-blooded and stout. He had during the last seven years often spoken to his family of fears of stroke of paralysis. It is said his brothers, one or two of whom died from paralysis, strikingly resembled him in build, and his knowledge gained in early life by reading medicine, made him appre hensive that he might some day go as they had gone. About three weeks ago while at St. Louis, he suffered from an attack of diarrhoea, but this was effect ually checked on his return home- Day by day his strength increased, and yesterday he dictated a letter to Mrs. Stocking, ontf" of his daughters, now in Vienna, in which he spoke of his good health. The dictation was made to his private secretary, and yesterday afternoon, when the justice was carried into his office, the letter was lying on the table awaiting his signature. It probably will never be signed, but must remain as an affecting memento, an ad ditional testimony as to the uncertainty of human existence. Mrs. Millet's condition has been dis tressing all day. Yesterday she bore up well, but reaction has set in, and her nerves are in a pitiable state. She is completely prostrated. She is in good health, though, so there is no cause for alarm. Mrs. Reeves, a relative of Mrs. Miller, arrived this morning and is giv ing her whole attention to the task of calming the almost distracted lady. The only members of the justice's fam ily here are his wife and son, the latter, Irvin Miller, being a well-known Chi cago lawyer. Mrs. Touitalin, a daughter, who is near Colorado Springs, and Miss Lucy Corkhill, the justice's grand daughter, have been notified by tele graph. A great many inquiries are received from all parts of the country. Chief Justice Fuller received a telegram from ex-president Cleveland, expressive of grief at the news of Justice Milller's illness, and the incident recalls the fact that between the ex-president and jus tice there had been for some years a feeling of mutual admiration and warm personal friendship. One of Justice Miller's associates on the bench, tonight, in speaking of his colleague's illness, said the laborious work of the circuit court was too hard for him, and he had determined never again to undertake it. He was tired out on his return, and felt that he never again could do the work and do himself justice. At midnight Justice Miller was still alive, although the end was momentari ally .expected. Dr. Lincoln left the jus tice's bedside at 11:30, and to those in waiting said the end must soon come, though it was possible he might live until the early morning hours. A telegram was received this afternoon from President Harrison, expressing to Mrs. Miller his grief at her husband's illness, and stating if there was any hope of his reaching the dying man's beeside before the end came, he would at once start for Washington. An answer was returned to the effect that he would be too late. Mrs. Harrison called this even ing and spent a few moments with Mrs. Miller. She seemed very tnxious, know ing of their mutual frienaship, that the president should at ontfi come to the bedside of his stricken riend, and left the house with the intention of tele graphing the president p start at once. KECKLKSS RAjDERS. A Sanguinary A hair in ia Lake County Saloon. Cai.istoma, Cal., Oct.! 11.—Near the Bradford auicksilver hine in Lake county last evening, feveral masked men raided a saloon kept by Steven Rich and wife, :iu rosnt being one of the worst tragedies riported for this partof the state for s long time. As soon as the raidt. i. j entered the )lace, shooting began right and left, and Mrs. Rich was fatally wounded, being shot three or four times. Rich was also wounded and W. R. McQuire was shot dead. During the fight Mrs. Rich pulled the mask off one man, and she recognized him as Henry Arcar ro, an employee at the mine. McGuire also worked there. Fred Bennett, a hanger-on at the saloon, escaped through the window. Tar and feathers, supposed to have been intended for him, were afterwards found near by. The raid was, no doubt, to permanently clear the saloon of persons there occupying it, particularly Bennett. Whether murder was first intended or not none but the raiders can tell. An inquest is being held. No arrests have yet been made, though parties are shadowed, awaiting the result of the inquest. K. F. Loud for Congress. San Josk, Cal., Oct. 11.—The fifth con gressional district Republican conven tion met in Turnverein hall at 1 p. m., with Duncan McPherson, of Santa Cruz, in the chair. John M. Days, of San Francisco, nominated E. F. Loud, pf San Francisco, for congress. The nomina tion was seconded by C. N. Felton, of San Mateo, and by C. M. Shortridge, of Sant aClara,and carried by acclamation. The convention then adjourned sine die. FOR MRS. FREMONT. THE GIFT OF A HOUSE FROM HER NUMEROUS FRIENDS. She Declines All Other Aid—A Committee of Ladies at Work to Raise $10,000 to Purchase a Suitable Home. San Francisco, Oct. 11. —The ladies' committee for raising a fund for the benefit of Mrs. Fremont and daughter, met here today. The president read a letter from Mrs. Fre mont, declining any form of aid except a dwelling. The sentiment of the letter was that the proposition to raise money for her support was an undeserved re flection upon her sons. She felt grate ful for the kindly feeling which prompt ed the movement for her benefit. W. B. Farwell, chairman of the citi zens' committee,stated that his commit tee had raised $1,000. It was decided to raise $10,000. The following address was adopted: We, the undersigned friends and neighbors of Mrs Fremont and daugh ter, sympathizing keenly in their great sorrow, have constituted ourselves a voluntary committee for securing a suitable home for them, which shall be a gift from the women of California. We offer an opportunity of assisting in this, to all who will consider it an honor and privilege. HARRISON'S MANEUVERS. The Day Spent at St. Louis—Chicago's Urgent Invitation Declined. St. Louis, Oct. 11.—The presidential train reached here at 9 o'clock this morn ing. An artillery salute greeted its ar rival, and Gov. Francis, Mayor Noonan and various committeea greeted the dis tinguiahed guests. The party were soon seated in carriages and proceeded to the Southern hotel. The route was jammed with people. In the streets were waiting United States troops, state militia, Grand Army corps, Sons of Veterans and many other organiza tions —several thousand men in all. As the presidential carriage passed each body, a salute was given, and the divi sions then wheeled into line behind. From the Southern hotel the president and party reviewed the parade which was a magnificent one. After lunch they proceeded to the Merchants' Ex change, where Governor Francis and Mayor Noonan delivered addresses of welcome. Harrison responded briefly, thanking the state and city for his magnificent, reception. Secretary Tracy also spoke briefly. On leaving the Merchants' Exchange the presidential party went direct to the fair grounds, the route covering a large portion of the business part of the city and the most beautiful residence quar ter. The drive was apparently much enjoyed by the president. In passing through Vandeventer place, the presi dent stopped for a moment at the house of his friend R. C. Kerens. At the fair grounds a great luncheon was served to the president and party, Governor Fran cis. Mayor Noonan, and fifty other dis tinguished citizens of fcit. Louis and Mis souri. At the conclusion of the lunch eon, the party again entered carriages and were driven around the fairgrounds, viewing briefly the exhibits of every de partment. On the return of the presi dent to the city, he and his party, Gov ernor Francis and Mayor Noonan were entertained at a private dinner at the Southern hotel, after which the presi dent repaired to his room, until his even ing visit to the exposition. At 8 o'clock this evening the party went to the exposition building. After a brief reception in the ladies parlor, the party proceeded to music hall. The president occupied a box handsomely decorated for the occasion. When he entered, Gilmore's band struck up, Hail to the Chief, which was partially drown ed out by cheers from the throats of six thousand people. During the concert which followed, a little girl named Jeannie Brokaw presented the president a large floral piece. The president thanked the child for the flowers. After repeated calls Governor Francis intro duced the president, who spoke briefly. At 10 o'clock the party started for In dianapolis. The president is hourly in receipt of telegrams giving the condition of Justice Miller, and should his death occur tonight or tomorrow, it will probably hasten somewhat the president's return to Washington. The programme, how ever, is to spend tomorrow quietly in Indianapolis and leave for Washington the following morning, making brief stops at several Indiana and Ohio towns. Hon. Mark McDonald, of California, one of the world's fair commissioners-at large, came down from Chicago to renew the urgent in vitiation of the board of directors and Direfctor-General Davis to visit the world's Ifair city and inspect the world's fair siteA The president was compelled again toVdecline. The Chi cagoans had invited\ him before he left Washington, but he, replied that his schedule was already made up and he could not, in to other western cities, visit Chicago at this time, par ticularly as he had already n'sited it on the occasion of the opening/ w the audi torium. I / \ SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 12, 1890. CREATED A BREEZE. Sigiior Crispi's Florentine Speech. All Europe Agitated Over His . Remarks. King Humbert Thinks the Premier Overdid the Business. The American Tariff Creates Weeping and Wailing and Qnashing of Teeth in France. Associated Press Dispatches.! Berlin, Oct. 11.—[Copyrighted, 1590, by the New York Associated Press.] — The speech of Signor Crispi, the Italian prime minister, at Florence, is an indi rect admission of the Figaro interview which irritated Austria by showing a too open anxiety, for financial reisons, to conciliate France. King Humbert is said to have conveyed a hint 1o the prime minister that he had gone a little too far. The Denio Florence says the speech was aimed especially to conciliate Austria and assure her it was to Italy's interest to remain in the triple alliance. The tone of the Russian press shotrs that the speech will assist reapproacb ment with France. The Novoe Vremja says it makes it incumbent upon Frante to come to a definite understanding with Russia, in order to neutralize the danger of possible aggression on the part of the allied powers. Prior to his departure on a hunting excursion to Huburtusstock, today, Em peror William received Count de Laun- try, Italian embassador to Berlin, who presented to his majesty a portrait of King Humbert. He also received Chas. Gibson, an American profesßor of law, whom the emperor invited to take lunch eon with him. As the result of the new United States tariff law, the manufacturers of clothing are holding back their stocks. A large number of operatives will be discharged from the woolen goods factories in the Gruenburg district in Silesia, and the weavers at Nowaves, near Potsdam, are expecting a lock-out. Press comments on the new tar iff continue, and the question of a European tariff campaign against America or a German-Austrian customs union, is still eagerly discussed. The rumor that the government had opened negotiations witli Austria, caused a commotion among the manufacturers in Austria and the agriculturists in Hungary, but since Austria's rejection of Bismarck's offer of a modified tariff treaty in 1879, both nations have adopted a strong protective policy. So many in terests are engaged on both sides that no sober-minded man believes such a policy can be realized at the present time. The North German Gazette's warning against cherishing such an illusion on the subject is well justified. German exports to Austria amount to 360,000,000 florins, of which 100,000,000 florins is textile fabrics. Austrian exports to Germany amount to 400,000,000 florins, and consist mainly of raw products and agricultural pro ducts. Any increase in the latter would ruin German agriculture, while an in crease in the former would imperil highly the protected industries of Aus tria. The Reichstag and German govern ment are not likely to risk the entire loss of the American market on the strength of reciprocity by cooperation with Aus tria, which loseß practically nothing. The Vienna chamber of trade and commerce has opened an inquiry into the mother-of-pearl trade, the turners in which are willing to emigrate to America, but lack the necessary capital to ensure their admission to the United States. Russian agriculturists are counting upon European repriasal for the new tariff, to find a larger opening in the European markets for their corn and cattle. The accouchment of the empress is expected in February. The projected court festivities will be advanced. It is officially denied that General Yon Waldersee, chief of staff, is about to re tire. AGITATED GAULS. The McKinley Bill Causes the Wildest Excitement in France. 1 Paris, Oct. 11. —Agitation lover the new United States tariff law, was greater than ever dtring the last week. The wildest ideas as to the scope and effect of 1 the law were prevalent. Lyons violently remonstrated against the heavily in creased duties on silk. Bordeaux was equally excited about wine, and )the whole of France was in a condition of extreme irritation and apprehension, which was reflected by the newspapers. M. Lockroy treats the idea of a European Zollverein against Amer ica, as Utopian. He holds that France, unassisted by other countries, can open the gate% of the American Chinese wall, by profiting by the word "reciprocity," which occurs in the new law. THE CONSPIRACY CASES. They Will Go On Without the Chief De fendants. Tipperary, Oct. 11.—The crown de cided this morning to continue the pro secution of the remaining Irish leaders, notwithstanding the flight of Dillon and O'Brien. The magistrates decided it would be impossible to proceed with the trial in the absence of O'Mahony, and the court adjourned until Monday. Dublin, Oct. 11.—It is definitely known that Dillon and O'Brien were not among the passengers on the steamer La Bourgogne, from Havre. The theory that they went on a yacht and boarded the steamer outside, is the favored one. HELP FOR IRELAND. Tn« Government Gives the Peasants an Opportunity to Work. London, Oct. 11. —The government has advanced the Midland Great West ern railway company of Ireland 4400,000 to enable the company to build lines tit connect the coast with inland markets in the diatreased districts of Ireland. The Telegraph says the help af forded to the poor tenants by this opportunity to procure work, will prove opportune, and will enable them to earn money to tide over the worst winter months and purchase potato seed in the spring. The fisheries along the extent of the Irish Littoral will be developed by facilities afforded by the railroad company to transport fish to the inland towns. UTMOST HUMAN SPEED. One Hundred Yards in Less Than Ten Seconds. Washington, Oct. 11.—Even time beaten—one hundred yards run in leas than ten seconds! It seemed hard to credit, that at last the record for a 100 --yard dash, which has stood for so many years, and which not a few high author ities in athletics considered the utmost of human speed, had been broken in a regular meeting. But it was done beyond question in today's contests of the; amateur athletic union. | Owen, the winner, was caught up by his ad mirers and carried away on their shoul ders. Several other records were low ered during the day. Owen's time was nine and four-fifths seconds. TURF TOPICS. STAMBOUL FAILS TO LOWER HIS RECORD AT NAPA.

Five Lives Known to Have Been Lost. A Colored Porter and Two Lodgers Burned to a Crisp. A Mother Leaps From the Fifth Story With a Babe in Her Arms—The In fant Unhurt. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Oct. 12. —Four lives were lost by a fire in the Putnam European hotel, La Salle and Adams streets, at an early hour this (Sunday) morning. A kerosene lamp in one of the upper hall ways exploded, and the fire quickly spread. The guests, of whom there were a score in the house, were not awakened until the arrival of the en gines. The firemen quickly ran ladders up to the windows and most of the terror-stricken people were helped safely to the ground. Mrs. Minnie Robinson, who with her husband and infant, was asleep in a room on the fifth floor, became crazed with fright, and be fore her husband could do anything to stop her, grasped her babe in her arms and jumped from the window. The un fortunate woman was crushed so badly on the pavement that she lived but a short time, but the babe miraculously escaped unhurt. Within fifteen minutes the firemen had the flames extinguished, and al though the presence of a vast amount of stifling smoke made it almost impos sible to enter the house, started a search to see if anyone was in it. They soon found the body of the colored porter, Edward Peyton, in his room burned to a crisp. A few doors beyond they found the bodies of two roomers, Charles Easton and Louis Berger. At 2:30 a. m. no more bodies were found and the fire marshal believes the casualties are comprised in the above j list. The pecuniary damage is small. Most of the guests escaped in their night clothing, and some of them lose their effects. THE STATE CAMPAIGN. Mayor Pond Given a Grand Reception at Stockton. Stockton, Cal..
