The announcetiH-nt van given to the crowd waiting in the street y Juutie Coxe, ho came to the door on Twenty fourth etrevt and said : It is al! over." He hud been sinking gradually since noon. Tlie hopes engendered on Sun day dwindled with the rising of fhe morning's sun. By noon they had van ished entirely, and at 12.30 the doctors formally gave up the case. At 1:30 a. m. he was alive, but the faintest symptoms of vitality only were discerned in bis wated body. His feet and bands were Cold, and the hloo l was gurgling op from hi hintrs which ultimately choked him. He breathed in short, weak (rasps, an-1 was w holly iiiaemdhle and almost wholly pulselet!. The family ba.l jratherel about bis bed nmiitin the mintilcK nntil the end. At midnight Dr. Parker left the hotie, nfter a long visit. Ih-Kiidiit that time that it waon!y a ijucHtion of a few hours at the nioKt. A ls iwerful coiu-:itu-tion would have Ions since rucrumbeil. WIIEX THKT LOUT hope. All lmpe of recovery was abandoned at 12:30 o'clix-k in the afternoon, when Hil nioiiary rdema, the K-tt'inji of blood in the Innps by reason of irradtial heart fail ure, was developed, and niflile it certain that diro!utinn was only a question of bourn. The improvement that had marked the sufferer's condition on Sun day continued the fim of the nijjht, and he rested more quietly than he had res-ted in some day. But before morning it became evident that this seeminr iiiet nes of K'nuiber was the result of prow injr physiiil weakr.esB. Ir. P.arlcer drove np in his carriare at 0 a. and wss in the sick room with Dr. Anderton for an hoar. When he came out there w .w uo sirn of the buoyancy that had marked bis manner ever since Mr. Conkling was taken sick. He saw that Mr. Conkling's mind was grom imz clouded. The patient had taken alotit forty otinei-s of food, mostly niiik, since Sunday evening. His pulse was S, and he was semi-unconscious. Lawterllenry Melville, Mr. Conkling's law partner, called just as Dr. Barker was going away, and said when he came out that the patient was in a critical condi tion. Alderman Conklinz, Isaac II. Bai ley and C. A. Stevens were in the next room when Dr. Barker called, and they nere satislied that the end was very near at band. at the bedsihe. Colonel Fred (irant ami bis wife called a few minutes later, and were admitted to Mrs. Conkling's presence; She was almoet worn ont physically, and greatly depressed mentally. She had caught a odd two days liefore ami i: had atfected her eyes, but she had passed the greater part of Sunday night at her hu-l.and's bedside, being relieved at intervals by Mrs. Oakman, the Senator's daughter. Mr. Conkling, who bad been in a semi stupor all the morning, relapsed into un consciousness at noon, and at 12:30 o'clock the symptonisof pulmonary odema were unmistakable. Dr. Barker came back at 3:30 o'clock, and at the end of a half hour's conference be came to the door and verlially reported that hope was abandoned. "Mr. Conkling has grown steadily morse since 12:30 o'clock," he said. "He has de veloped tedeina. His pulse is steadily increasing in feverish ness, and he can hardly last until morning." Thedia'tor returned a third time at 5:23. lie remained hut five minutes, and came away with a distress! look on his face. lie was so completely worn out himself that he could hardly hold him self erect to talk w ith the reporters. "Mr. Conkling is sinking pretty fast," lie said, with very considerable emotion. ""His lungs are filling up faster and faster. He has to struggle now to breathe, an.l his breathing is spasmodic and rapid. He has been exerting all his vital power, but that is giving out. His vitality is so wonderful, however, that he may last until morning, although lie may proba bly pass away liefore midnight, and he may go at any moment." Dr. Barker complained that lie felt like a drunken man, and that his brain was in a whirl from exhaustion. He staggered as he walked to his carriage. CBOWIMATTIK HOTEL. As the news that hope was gone spread over the city a little crowd assembled in front of the house. Mr. Edwards II. doff, who has rooms on the first floor of the Twenty-fourth street annex of the Hoffman House, threw them o-n forthe accommodation of the reporters. Tolice Sergeant Schinittbergcr arrived at 7:30 o'clock with two men, who were put on guard al the doorway. Judge. Randolph B. Martine came to the house to make inquiries. Other callers during the day had been Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Fish, K'iimin.I Wet more, Henry Hilton, Elisha K. Camp, Charles M. Dacosta, August Belmont. Joel W. Mason, E. T. Throop, Oneral Sylvester Denning and wife, Commissioner J. Edward Simmons, Ward Hunt, W. L Fliess, Henry C. Bowen, Mr. and Mrs. John B. Wood, John A. McYickar, N. ... Williams, Henry C. Backus and Surrogate Itanaotu. Mrs. Conkling lay down upon a sofa in an adjoining apartment after Dr. Bark er's departure to get some rest, leaving Judge Coxe, Dr. Anderton and Porter OToole alone with the dying man. The rejxirt got abroad at 8:15 that Mr. Conk- ; ling had just died. It brought an in creased crowd abont the front of the house, and many tried to presitheir way into the hallway. TUB OVARD norBLKD. - The guard at the door waa doubled, and Detective Jacobs and Superintend ent Loud, of the hotel, stationed them selves at the top of the stoop and passed no one who had not the right to enter. White-haired Colonel Conkling drove op at o'clock, and went to the sick chamber. Mrs. Conkling, her married daughter, and Mr. Oakham, the ex-Senator' son-in-law; Alderman Alfred B. Conkling, his nephew, and Judge Coxe were gathered about the bed. The room was darkened. The dying man lay upon a brass bedstead in the bedroom, which is the rear room of a series of three, on the second floor, looking oat upon Twen-ty-foarta street. The sufferer coughed with some violence at intervals and Somerset SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY, breathed ve?y heavily. He opened his eyes at times, and seemed to be con scious that people were about him, but he did not recognize them. His last mo ment of clear consciousness appears to have liecn in the morning, when he si lently pressed Dr. Barker's hand at the physician's first visit. Dr. Anderton sat with the relatives awaiting the final mo ment. Law papers connected with the cases that the ex-Senator had been act ively engaged in just before he was taken sick were scattered over the lare desk in the front room, which Mr. Conkling nsed as his study and workroom. Tele grams of sympathy numbered by the s-ore were spread over the same dek. The family intended to preserve thcfe Flowers bloomed on the table, too. They were sent early in the day by Mrs. Bliss. A LIFE or THE EV-SENATuR. Colonel Conkling left the room after a ten minutes' w IfUpered talk with his sister-in-law, anil the others and Alderman Conkling followed him an.l took a little fresh air. He said that it- appeared at 0 o'clock that Mr. Conkling would live alx.iit 12 hours still, ow ing to his great vi tality. Alderman Conkling also sai l that he was going to prepare a life of the ex-Senator. He has been busy for the last ten years, unknown to Mr. Conk ling, gathering material for it. F.x-Sec-retary William Windom called just lie fore 9 o'clock ami was show n to the sick room. Jut before he came there had lieen a little informal talk about the funeral, but no definite arrangements were made. A uniformed band of itinerant musi cians gathered on the opposite sidewalk some distance from the hotel annex and played an operatic air. One of Captain Iteilly's policemen hurried across the street anil stopped it. Dr. Barker arrived with Dr. Sands at 0:13 an.l sjH-nt 25 minutes with the pa tient. Dr. Barker had rested, and was in better spirits than at his previous visit. Dr. Sands did not go w ith hi:n to the sick room. Dr. Barker said on coming out: "Mr. Conkling's system is sinking fast, and it looks as though he could not now live through the night, although he may last nntil morning, despite contrary indi cations. He is now lying perfectly pass ive, and is not w earing himself oat phys ically, if mentally. His cough has abat ed. His temperature is now 102. His pulse is now 140 and his respiration is t)0." FXTIiEMITIES GUoWiXG COLD. Dr. Barker said he would return at 1 1 o'clock. There was a rush of waiting jieople npon the reporters who accom panied the doctor to his carriage. They anxiously asked for the latest news. When Dr. Barker returned at 11 o'clock he found Mr. Conkling's palse so weak that it was impowible to detect the pul sations, and his respiration was intensely rapid. His breathing had become the mere hurried gasping of a deathbed. His extremities had become cold as the blood left them. Dr. Barker remained in the sick room but fifteen minutes. There was nothing to be done. He said when lie left, the cbamlier and met the reporters: "Mr. Conkling cannot, I think, live longer than two hours now at the utmost, although he may linger beyond that limit." Law yer Mellville. Sir. Conkling's partner, was by Mr. Barker's side, and heard the final announcement. Dr. Barker went home after bidding the newspaper men good night. He said it w as imjierative that he himself should get some sleep. When he left the sick room Mrs. Conk ling anil Mrs. Oakman were sitting by the liedside, weary and with bowed heads, awaiting the momentarily expect ed death of the husband ami father. Thomas, the colored nurse, was near by with Dr. Anderton. The crowd that lin gered about the street dispersed when Dr. Barker went away. Alderman Oak ling came back and remained in the sick room until 1:15 o'clock. When became ont he said that Mr. Conkling might pos sibly live until day break. CoXKLIM'.'s CAREER. Riiseoc Codkl'ng was born in Albany on the 30tb of Oetolier, 1S2S. His father Alfred Conkling, was a Judge of the United States District Court by appoint ment of President John Quineey Adams in 125. He had served as Representa tive in the Seventeenth Congress, and in ls52 was appointed by President Fill more to lie Minister to Mexico. He wrote several books on law, one of whicln known as "Conkling's Treatise," is a standard work found in nearly every lawyer's library. Itosi-oe attended the common schools of Albany, and had no opportunity In his boyhood to study the classics. His remarkable familiarity w ith the ancient and modern literature was gained by pri vate study after he bad left school. His father removed from Albany to Auburn and later to Geneva, where Eoseoe stud ied law. He was not noted as a student in those days, although he impressed all his associates as a voting man of ability. After he had read law with his father for a time he entered the office of Spen cer A Kiernan in I'tiea. The Kiernan waa Francis Kiernan, afterward United States Senator from New York, and it happened aeveral time in his career tliat Roscoe Conkling was the political adver sary of oia instructor. Conkling was prepared for the bar before he attained his majority and made no small impres sion while yet a minor. His abilities were so pronounced that Hamilton Fish appointed him District Attorney for Oneida county a month before he came of age. He was admitted to the bar on his twenty-fist birthday. He was already actively interested in politics and was becoming a local leader, but even then his leadership was of the same quality that marked it when he had the entire lb-publican party of tliis State under con trol. He was domineering almost to the degree of arrogance, and not a politician who depended on the currying of per sonal favor. In all his career he kept himself at the front by force of bis char acter ratlier than by the condensing suav ity of the ordinary politician. As a party leader he was a thorough tactician, and he relied confidently npon the discipline of his forces to accomplish party ends. A Sl-OOHFTL LAWYER. As a lawyer he was remarkably suc cessful from the beginning in criminal practice, and the nature of bis public of fice in I'tiea kept him constantly busy with criminal cases. It happened, there fore, when his term as District Attorney expired, that criminal business rather ESTABLISHED 1807. than civil came his way, and his fame grew. He was always noted for his aver sion to miscellaneous social intercourse and personal gossip, and the reserve with which he marked the line between pub lie life and private life. In 1SS he mar ried Julia Seymour, yottcgest sister of Horatio Seymour. This marriage was not altogether pleasing to the Seymour t Presidential nomination. He had en family, but there was no marked opposi- j tirely recovered his grin on the party in tion to it, and after a time the Seymours ; the ftate. George William Curtis, who were among the most steadfai4 friends Conkling had. Shortly after his marriage Mr. Conk ling was elected Mayor of Utica, and at the same election J. C. Hoyt and Charles S. Wilson were tied for tiie District Attor neyship. Neither of the candidates was qualified or the ofi'ue, therefore, and Mr. Conkling, who was the incumbent at the time, held over for the term, serving as Mayor anil District At torney &t the same time. J In thu fall of the same year he made his fint attempt to get into Congress. His friends advis d him earnestly not to gi before the con vention as a candidate, for it was not lv licved that he could get the nomination, and a defeat at that time would have, been extremely prejudicial to bU chances afterward. Mr. Conkling ha I faith in his strength, however, cud secured the nomination an.l eventually the election. He was not a marked man ia the Thirty sixth Congri'ss. He took little part in the delates of the body and his only impor tant position was as a member of the Committee on the District of Colu niiia. He was re-elected in Ii iJ, and in the ex tra session called by President Lincoln he took a leading part- He was then Chairman of the Committee on the Dis trict of Columbia, and of a special com mittee appointed to fraiuo a baiikrutcv l.iw. Mr. Conkling's attitude on the great questions of the time was pronounced against w ar, but not in favor of abolition. I In the bitter debates t'utoci arreil iu the Thirty-seventh Congress lie was the lead er of the New Yolk delegation an.l almiist the only Northern Representative w ho ustsl plain terms in speaking of the seces sion of the Southern States. Ills remar kable rhetoric was never more brilliantly employed than in his response to tic fiery Southern Itepresontatives, an.l in DEXOI X(IX; SBTiSRIOX as treason and rebellion. Nevertheless Mr. Conkling was in favor of a compro mise with the Southern States on the slavery issue if thereby war might bl avoided. When war proved inevitable, he was one of the most ardent support ers of the administration of President Lincoln, and an uncom promising advo cate of a vigorous prwecution of the con flict. He became bitterly opposed to General McCIellan and all the friends of that commander. He was one of the first to recognize General Grant's fighting qualities, ami after the battle of Fort Donclsjn he proposed a ' resolution of thanks, the first resolution of the kind passed by Congress in recognition of Grant's services. One of the most important features of Mr. (Vinkling's early career in Congress was the attitude he took on the famous Legal Tender act of Io2. It was one of the few occasions when he kicked over the party traces anil voted independent ly. The bill, inspired by Secretary Chase, was drawn nn I promated by Mr. Spuuld ding, of New York. Mr. Conkling favor ed the issue of an interest bearing note, and opjiosed the Spaulding bill with Thaddeus Srevens's amendment at every stage of its passage. His speeciis on that subject were not long, and none of his Tirincinal sneeches were devoted to Enan- .... ,. . , Conkling voted for the payment of inter est on the national debt in coin. Mr. Conkling'sdcertion of his party in the legal tender matter did not seriously affect his standing in the organization, but his political management during his two terms in the House made him many enemies in the Oneida district, and when i... r - ti.:. : i i. . .. t. lie ran lor toe & inn -vigiiiu v ongress lie j was defeated by Irancis Kiernan, his in structor in law. For the two years which, by reason of his defeat, he passed in pri vate life. Mr. Conkling proctise.i law in Utica an.l laid the wires for another . , , . I campaign. Nothing ever engaged h: at- I 1 n t tc-ntion more earnestly tnan this preiiuii- nary canvass. The work wa well done, and Mr. Conkling was elected, again run- cingln opposition to Mr. Kiernan. He entered the Thirty-ninth Congress a man with a national reputation fur brilliant oratory and good party management. He took a very prominent part in rcconsiruc tion legislation, thn.ugh all of w hich be was the embodiment of his party's poli cy. He was re-elected to the House in lStlrt, but before Congress assembled he was chosen successor to Judge Ira Harris in the Senate. He therefore resigned his seat in the House and entered the Senate on March 4, lSiir. He was re-elected in 1S73, and again in 1S7:). A POWER ix POLITICS. President Grant's Southern policy was to a great degree directed by Mr. Conk ling, and the administration found in him its strongest and most faithful sup porter. He helped to originate the ch il rights bill, and from the start advocated such measures as tended to a speedy re sumption of specie payment. Mr. Conkling had the honor of being " mentioned " for the Presidential nomi nation by the Republican party as early as the campaign of 1S70. A res,ectjb!e body of delegates supported his name in the convention that nominated Haves. In the following winter Mr. Conk ling took a leading part in the legislation that resulted from the election, and his nnceasing work and powerful speeches had much to do with the establishment ofthe Electoral Commission, by means of which the Republican party retained its control of the Government. While these events were taking plsce in national politics Mr. Conkling was potent in shaping the affairs of his tnp port of the administration. President Grant turned the patronage of New York over to Conkling, although according to custom it should have gone to Mr. Fen ton, the senior Senator. This caused dissension in the party, and an issue was trade of it in the State Convention of 1S7L The Conkling faction won at that time, but when the Lilieral outbreak oc curred in the following year a great pro portion of the defeated fiction sided with Horace Greely. The result ofthe aation al campaign left Mr. Conkling in a stronger position than ever, End it may be that it caused bim carelessly to relax his bold on the machine; for, in 1874, APRIL 25, 1888. the Conkli.ig men were defeated. The party was demoralized and Tilden was elected Governor. It was very generally said that Conkling permitted his party to suffer defeat in 1K74 and 1S73 as pun ishment for discarding his leadership, but in l-STGthe Convention adopted the unit rule and mai'e him its chow frthc had been opposed to Conkling for sever al years, made a strenuous endeavor to beat him in the State campaign of lb77 but he failed in every particular. It was at that convention that Conkling pre vented the passage of resolutions spinn ing the title of Hayes to the Presidency. HIDING TO A FALL. From the Litter part of Grant's second term to Is-sO the third term was agitated. and Mr. Conkling advocated it from the j start.

It was asensa- j tional struggle, anil resnlted in a statu- i pede for Garfield in which the fitthfu! .'Vti did not join. It has ix-en jenerallv believed that Mr. Garfield took both Blaine and Conkling : ii1i; l.,,: . :.. aml arranged a plan reconciliation bv which the party was to lie tinitisl and J llie ailiuiiii.stratinn coiniu. te.l lor tlie m- t-rcsts of the whole organization. Thomas C. Piatt was elix-teil to the Sen ate as Conkling's colleague on the under standing that he would support the ad ministration in its appointments. Al most the first batch of names sent to the Senate for confirmation included js.iiti cal enemies of Conkling's. Piatt stuck to his agreement for a w hile and voted for confirmation, but Mr. Conkling re treated to the l.ibbv. Finally the name nf Kobertson was sent in for the Collet- torship of New York. Tiiis was tip. last stra r. ami both Conkling and Piatt re signed. It is said on goo i authority that i - i.ir i i:..j o .nr. voiiMiiiig varisi trry mite per-ouauy for patmr.ai;; that be made his fiirht against Gart" eld as a matter of principle. He was an unswering advocate of jrarfy responsibility in the conduct of the tiov ernmcnt, and believed that out of that system grew naturally the plan of dele gating the patronage of States) to their re spective Senators. The New York Legis lature was strongly pro-Conkling at the time of the resignation, and for one day few doubted that both l.eand Piatt would lie triumphantly re-elected. The situa tion chan-d color rapidly, however.and Mr. Conkling had to contend not only against the Blaine men but against the desertion of his friends. Governor Cor nell refused to assist him in the canvass for re-election, and many members of the Assembly dared not support him liec.iuse their districts were opposed to such action. Such, however, was the strength of the Conkling or "Stalwart" faction that a struggle of more than six weeks' duration ensued before Lapham anil Miller were elected in place of Conkling and Piatt. HIS LAST TEAKS. Since that time Mr. Conkling ho not appeared liefore the public as a politician.
