The Cleveland aod Hendricks Club
was addressed last Friday night by
Hon. Wm. McFarland. He begaa by
promising that no very great difference
between party platforms is apparent,
but that the Kepublican party's claim
to be continued in power is based upon
what it baa heretofore dene. He then,
from the facts of history, framed such
an indictment against that party as we
have rarily listened to. His speech
was liatened to with Intense interest by
tho audience and was pronouncsd by all
from whom we. hoax J an expression
one of the best and most statesmanlike
speeches yet beard la Morristown dur

DEATH OF ARTHUR S. GREGG.
From tbe Trttmanstmrg (8. T.) Sentinel, Sept, IT.
I Having indefinite particulars, our last issue
made bnet relerence with regard to the death
of Arthur S. Gregg, but authentic informa
tion since received permits us to mention such
facts regarding the sad event as will be of in
terest to tbe many frieixls of the deceased. As
is well known, Mr. Gregg has, during the past
few years, represented the firm of Gregg &
Co. in important interests which have required
his presence, each season, during the several
months, in the Southern States, and particu
larly in Morristown, Tenn., where a branch
office of the firm, is located. Some weeks sinej
as was customary," he ' adjusted affairs here so
an absence of several weeks might be advan
tageously employed in the interests of the
Southern Agency. With that new Mr. Gregg
proceeded Souihsome two months since, de
voting his time to the" object that had taken
him there, but -it- appears that during a previ
ous visit to Tennessee he had. identified him
self with C: P. Biggs in manufacturing lumber,
their mill being located at Big Creek Tenn.,
Mr. Biggs being the -active f and managing
member of the hrm. . Therefore as occasion
presented itself Mr. Gre visited' his" partner,
going over mill 'and timber lands, "tmd in doing
ttus it was necessary to pass from the timber
lands to the mill on; logging cars, which are
run on a tramway. Oa the day of the acci
dent Mr. Grejar was ridinir on the forward car
of the train, which is run by grevity, the car
oemg controlled Dy a system ot brakes but
through some cause unknown the brakes failed
to operate promptly, and the forward car de
railed, Mr. Gregg being hurled from it, his
ncaa coming in-.con.tact with' the wheel and
frame of the car following. While he was oth
erwise injured, the fatal wound was tiat of the
head. kvery availaole attention was given
him, but without favorable results. Death was
almost instantaneous : ffor while i evidence of
life remained some two hours following the ac
cident, consiosnrss was but momentary.
His parents, residing at Morris.Otvn, Tenn ,
were promptly jiotifiad of the disaster, and im
mediate measures were taken to reach their
son with skilled medical attendance, but all
trains having passed for the day, it was as a
helpless and hopeless effort. But with a sym
pathy stronger than all personal interest and
worthy of all praise and gratitude the officers
of the Railway cleared the road and gave the
relieving party the right of way. But as the
journey was feeing accomplished, bn the distant
mountain, ' attended by rugged men with horny
hands but tender, sympathetic hearts, the son
lay dying he was dead. ,The body of the de
ceased arrived here on Thursday evening, Sept.
1 1 th, many friends being-at the depot on its
arrival. The funeral services were held on
Friday, Sept. izth, and were largely attended,
Rev. R. H. Van Felt officiating. Excelsior
Fire Company and the lodge of Master Masons
of this village, and St Augustine Commandery
Knight Templars, of Ithaca, were present
The casket was garlanded with many floral
offerings, mute, fragrant, emblematic of the si
lent voices the life sweet in worthy deeds; and
the evergreen at the grave were expressive of
the affection for the departed one, the memory
of whom will ever Kve in the hearts of friends.
The life of Arthur S. Gregg was a clear and
unclouded example worthy of emulation. His
purpose was to prepare for the journalistic pro
fession, as literary effort appeared to- be his
ruling desire, but realizing that a thoroughly
disciplined mind was the first requisite of suc
cess, he entered Cornell University and applied
himself to such lines of study as would best
subserve his adopted profession, but for satis
factory ' reasons the University course was
abandoned, and he accepted a position with
Gregg & Co. With characteristic energy his
duties were performed and it soon became evi
dent that he possessed rare executive ability
a conservative principle in the conduct of affairs
a clear appreciaton of justice between parties
in interest These qualities, supplemented by
rigid system, soon placed him in a position of
high responsibility and trust "Old men for
counsel, young men for" war,', were . qualities
combined in Arthur S. Gregg- for young yet
Wise was he in counsel, active in producing re
sults.' 'While in his genial manner he endeav
ored to realize the pleasure of life he still recog
nized its seriousness. As a dutiful son he re
flected honor on his parents, as a devoted
grandson he was the crowning hope and stay
to his grandparents in their declinine years.
They with others must look to the disposer of
au tnings and in faith say "it is well;" for there
is the assurance that our friend and brother
has passed through the trials and uncertainties
of this life to experiencethe. joys, and certain
ties" of the life beyond.
