Fancrul Services Held Over the Be* mui 11s of the Late Secretary Window. Seurly the Entire Ofllcial and Dlplo inutic Corpn Present at the Ceremonies. Public and Private lluiidings Draped in Soniber ltluck, as a Tribute of ICcspect. Cabinet Officers Act as Pall-Bearers— IntcruHtnt at t!io llock Creek Cemetery. WASHINGTON, Feb. ii.—Funeral ser vices over the late secretary of the trea sury, Hon. Win. Windom, were held at the church of the Covenant. The vast concourse comprised more officials of President Harrison's administration than have ever before gathered together in one edifice. The scene was impres sive in its solemnity and awe inspiring in its simple grandeur, Gathered with in the walls of the stately white marble church were the nation's greatest states men, the most renowned diplomats of foreign countries, the highest officers of the army and navy of the United States, the most brilliant women of the social world, while mingling in the vast crowd were many whose plain dress bespoke their position in social life and empha sized the truth tnat "death levels all rank." To a large majority of those present the dead secretary was person ally known, his long public service hav ing given him an extended and varied acquaintance, and with IL any he was personally, as well as officially intimate. The hour iixed for the funeral cere mony was 12 o'clock, but by 10:30 w'clock the avenues and streets leading to the church began filling with car riages and pedestrians bent on the same mission of paying A Last Tribute of Respect To the dead. Gradually the space about the church filled up and at 12 o'clock, when the remains of Secretary Windom were brought from his private residence on Massachusetts avenue, locomotion had become very difficult. Congress had adjourned over the day to allow mem bers of the respective houses to attend the funeral. The executive departments, district government buildings, postoliice and public schools were closed in re spect to the memory of the deceased. The supreme court of the United States met and recessed until after the funeral services. The entire city seemed to be mourning, the flags on the executive department drooped at hall' mast about their staffs, the great treasury building, the scene of the secretary's greatest achievements and all its bureaus heavily draped in mourning, rendered the scene decidedly impressive. The navy de portment shrouded in mourning for John C. Bancroft, late secretary or' the navy and the department of justice draped in mourning for the late Attor ney General Devens, added to the sol emnity of the occasion. Indeed an air of Sadness Prevailed the Entire City Over. Morning opened balmy and springlike, and many friends of tne dead secretary availed themselves of the opportunity of taking a last look at his remains be tween 8 and 11 o'clock, the hours set apart for that purpose. At II o'clock a. in. a private service for the family and inti mate friends was conducted at the fam ily residence. Rev. Dr. Hamline, of the Ptesbyterian Church of the Covenant, officiated. Among those present at the private services was Mr. William D. Windom, son of the secretary Mrs. Windom, the Misses Windom, the pres ident and Mrs. Harrison, Secretary and Mrs. Blaine, Secretary and Mrs. Proc tor, Secretary and Mrs. Noble, Secretary and Mrs. Rusk, Attorney General and Mrs. Miller, Postmaster General and Mrs. Wanamaker, Secretary Tracy,Mrs. Charles M. Hendley, Secretary Wis dom's private secretary, and Mrs. Lu «retia Fitzgerald. At the conclusion of the private services the funeral cortege moved to the church. Before the re mains of Secretary Windom reached the «hurch the doors were opened and those having cards for reserved seats were admitted. These nearly filled the edi fice, and the space that was left was soon filled by the public. The church had been appropriately decorated for the occasion. Heautifiil Floral Tributes. Upon the platform were placed a number of drooping palms,* which was the only attempt at decoration, being in •onsonance with the well known sim plicity of the Presbyterian faith. Banked against the foot of the altar were a num ber of floral pieces—the offerings of friends. Among the offerings were: A design, from the plate printers of the bureau of engraving and printing, with the legend "Plate Printers—3,387," in violets inserted in a bed of white roses, fringed with ivy a floral wreath from Mr and Mrs. Hill a floral cross from the secretary's office, and a shield from the office of the register of the treasury. The Funeral .Service*. At 11:50 a. m. the remains of Secre tary Windom arrived at the church and Dr. Hamlin recited the beginning of tne burial service, commencing with the words "The Lord giveth, and the Lord hath taken away. The casket, borne on the shoulders of eight members of the United States treasury guard,was preceded up the broad aisle by the mem bers of the cabinet, who constituted the henorary pallrbearers. When all were seated the choir saqe, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," after which the" Rev. Dr. Hamlin read a selection from the revised testament. The hymn, "The Cross of Christ, Glory," was then rendered by the choir with excellent ef fect. Dr. Hamlin, without taking a text, epitomized his conception of the character of the deceased ui the words: Charming, affable, of unfailing courtesy, of quiet dignity, of beautiful refinement, ft lawyer of wide reading and marked talent, a legislator of unswerving indus try and undaunted courage, a prominent financier of broad views and sov-nd pol icy, of abundant aggressiveness ami of lUe conservatism, a man un.sulli.-il. a citizen of uiifliTichri" tu .i muaei nus uana &ua ti ui,.... cat, manly love a Chrisiiau or sturdy faith and sincere humility such wan William Windom, and as such all men knew him in liis career. The services were brought to a close by Dr. Hamlin in a prayer in which he besought consolation for the family in their affliction and for the president atid his official family. He closed his prayer by reciting, "Our Father, in Heaven," in which the congrega ion joined. The services at the church lasted one hour, and at 1 o'clock the funeral courtege started for llock Creek cemetery, where the interment took place. The casket was covered with black cloth. Around it was placed a fringe of violets. A sil ver plate on the burial casket contained this simple inscription: Williaui Win dom. May 10, January 2!t, 18Ji." New York liuiltlliiK* DrupmJ.

OPORTO,, Feb, 3.—The insurrection of three regiments of the garrison here was Bubdued after a hot conflict, in which the rebels were forced to surrender. Shortly after the beginning of the re volt the insurgent troops and a portion of the fiscal guards, seized the Hotel de Ville (town hall) in Dom Pedro square, and proposed to then and there declare a republic. However, a strong body of loyal troops, composed of artillery and fusileers, promptly surrounded and laid siege to the Hotel de Ville. When that building was well surrounded the ar tillery opened fire upon it and. soon caused the bricks to fly about the heads of the insurgents who defended the building. The bombardment of the Hotel de Ville by the artillery was followed by a combined, well led and cleverly directed infantry attack upon the insurgents fortress. The fusileers behaved grandly, keeping up a rattling fire and advancing at the same time. The result was that after a feeble resistence the insurgents surrendered unconditionally. Three soldiers and four civilians, including a woman, were killed during the fight ing, and thirty-soldiers and ten civilians were wounded. Another Chilian ISattle.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 3.—The riots at Carbon Hill are still in progress, and two companies of state troops have been ordered to the scene by Governor Jones. There was more bloodshed Sunday, but it is impossible to learn its extent. Not less than eight or ten negroes have been killed, and possibly more. A number of white men who were concerned in the shooting have banded together and defy arrest. The negroes, so far as can be learned, have made no resistance, and no white men are reported killed or in jured. Eight hundred to 1,000 miners are employed at the Carbon Hill mines, and only 125 of them are negroes. Nearly all reports agree that negroes have been shot down without provoca tion. Dispatches from Carbon Hill at midnight say that the men who were defying arrest have announced that they will surrender to the sheriff. REGHHUINIJ FUR SEALS. Syndicate's Story of Their Being Rapidly Exterminated Denied. SEATTLE, Wash., Feb. 3.—James G. Swan, of Port Townsend, has obtained and published affidavits of numerous sealers that fur seals are born all along the coast, and that the pups can swim as soon as born. If this can be proven it is said it will change the whole Behr iug Sea controversy, as it is claimed now that fur seals breed only on the Priby loff Islands, and that the Bpecies would be exterminated if the hunters were not excluded from Behring Sea. Judge Swan offers to prove the truth of his statement to congress or a federal com mission. Fur seals were never so abun dant at Cape Flattery as now. They are found in myriads and the Indians are killing them by hundreds. Reciprocity Treaties Ready. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3.

Never having anything classical about them, not suited to the fastidious ear of the professional musician, there is yet something nndefinable in the so-called "plantation" melodies which charms the heart of the great mass of common hu manity the world over. The immense success of the two or three troupes of genuine "jubilee singers" that have made triumphal progresses through this country and Europe, attest the hold their songs have on humanity. The old plantation merry makings have passed away with slavery, but now and then one on a journey in the south will have an opportunity to hear something of the real sort. Besides, the southern states are delightful for a winter tou*-. The magnificent service of "the Burlington," reaching both Chicago and 8t. Louis over its own tracks, without change of cars, makes it the favorite of travelers bound south.

Railroad Accident* and Human Life. During the year 1889 accidents on rail roads involving human life were: Pas sengers killed, 315 passengers injured, 2,138 employes killed, 2.070 employes in jured, 20,148 other persons killed, 2,997 other persons injured, 1,602 total per sons killed, 5,282 total persons injured, 25,888. But the reports do not cover the total mileage of the country only 92.792 per cent, of it. If the accident rate was the same on the roads not reporting, the to tal number killed was 5,693, and the total injured, 27.888. These are the returns made by the railroad companies them selves, and they cannot well be suspected of exaggeration. Neither is there, on the other hand, any reason to suppose that they are not, in most cases, complete and prepared with perfect good faith. An idea of how great the risk is to rail road employes is shown by the records of the Brotherhood of Railroad Brake men. One in 83 of the 10.052 members is killed yearly and one in 60 injured. A brakeinan has only one chance in 4.7 of being allowed to die a natural death.— New York Herald. A Limited Space. Customer—I am afraid the head of this hammer is too long to admit of a good blow.
