NO. 3(5 REGISTER Septem THE HARTFORD f ) ti SENATOR JAMES DIES AFTER LONG ILLNESS Passes Away in Baltimore and Buried at Alarion, as Commanding Figure, Baltimore, aid., Aug. 20. Sena tor Ollle M. James, of Kentucky, died at Johns Hopkins Hospital this morning. The end camo at' 0:40 o'clock after a night of restlessness and suffering, followed by several hours of unconsciousness. Whether the Senator hiinclf, be fore ho lapsed into the unconscious state from which he did not emerge, realized that he was about to die, those who were with him are not certaln, but they aro. inclined to be lieve that he know his life was but a matter of Hours. Until au nour or so after last midnight Senator James' death was not expected, at least, not at this time. At Hoiiiitul Since April. . He was a very .ill man, stricken .with a complication of diseas.es, tho fmost serious of which was an ad- i. vanced case of Bright's disease. He had been at Johns Hopkins Hospit- )al since the middle of April, and there had been many cha'nges, now for the better, now for the worse, Wd it became a matter of giavo Moubt as to whether he would ever tho u-Aii ni?nin. nvnti if im rppnvprp.i Amfllciently to enable him to leavo 'the hospital and return to Marlon, Ky., his home. That he would ever again resume his commanding posi- tlon In the United States Senate wits virtually despaired of some' time ago, although the effort was mado to keep from him the news that would have distressed him beyond any other personal misfortune. Yesterday Senator James condi- tion was what it normally had been since he arrived in Baltimore. But after dinner last evening it was scon that he was not easy and about S o'clock he suffered a nervous chill. Mrs. James and his brother were with him nt this time, and they re- malned until about 11 o'clock. At that time ho apparently was resting with fair comfort, and they left him for the night. Mrs. James going to her boarding house, near tho hospital, and Mr. James to tho Southern Hotel. Mrs. James Is broken uuder tho shock which has come after months that to her were hopeful, even though filled with anxiety. She Yuad never believed that tho Senator -''"would not recover. Sho hnd no fear that the end was near when sho left htm asleep last .night. I ' . FUXERAL AT MARION. Marion, Ky Aug. 30.
