Fremont, 0., Jan. 17.--Ex-President
Ruthiirford B. Hayes died at 11 o'clock
tonight, bat the information of his
death was not known for some time
later, as everything waß kept exceed
ingly quiet in the vicinity of the Hayes
mansion. The early report was that
the condition of the ex-president was
improving nicely and that he wae rest
ing eisily, and this allayed suspicion.
80 sudden was the. announcement by
Webb Hayes that rfts father was dead,
that it proved a shock to all.
death's sudden summons,
From Mr. Hayes it is learned that the
condition of his father took a sudden
change early in the evening, and rapid
dissolution followed.
His sickness had been watched during
the day and evaning by Dr. Hilbiah aud
friends of the general, and, as is gen
erally the case, many conflicting rumors
were"afloat, but an interview early in
the evening with Rut herford B. Hayes,
jr., appeared to reduc« the facts to the
statement that his condition was prac
tically unchanged.
The members of the family had spent
the day quietly at home, and nothing
seemed to indicate that the death of the
general was expected. Webb Hayes went
to the bank wbere he is employed in usual
this morning. The family had all along
been reticent concerning the condition
of the ex-preßident, and the attending
physician followed the same course.
The exact seriousness, therefore, could
not be ascertained. As Btated in these
dispatches last night, however, th re
seemed to be a great deal of anxiety ex
pressed by friends of the family as to
the true condition of the patient.
Webb Hayes late this evening Baid
hiß father had passed a comfortable day ;
had reßted quietly and seemed in a most
cheerful mood MUsLucy ElliotKeeler,
I a relative of ths Hayes family, Bpent
a jsv jj: h pt tiren pg n ; g en {
interviewed a personal friend of the
family, who snid the ex-president Was
Beized witb a cold in Columhus last Sat
urday while drivipg to the Union depot,
and asked for Btimulants. This so re
vived him that he insisted on returning
home, saying: "I would rather die in
Spiegel grove than live anywhere elae."
After boarding the train he was seized
with violent pains in the cheat which
lusted until after hia return home. He
was treated for anginapectoria, and
while relieved of his distress, his heart
never recovered its vigor, and life sud
denly terminated by paralyeis of the
heart while lying in his room.
GOING WHERE LOCY IS.
He frequently referred to a visit made
to his wife's grave on the preceding San
day, and spoke of the quiet beauty of
the snow-covered scene. He ea'd he al
most wished he was lying there, and
yet, he sain : "My life is an exceptional
ly happy one." His last words were:
"I know I am going where Lucy is,"
spoken to his family physician with the
utmost earnestness.
He passed quietly and painlessly away
at 10:45 in the evening, surrounded by
members of his household. Tbe tanew
services will be held Frids.y, and Gey- «t
Hayes will be placed „ide his beloveU
wile in Lakewood cemetery.
A BIOGRAI'UICAL SKETCH.
Rutherford Btrchard Hayes was born
in Delaware, Ohio, October 4, 1822. His
father died previous to his birth, leav
ing the widow in eaßy circumstances,
enabling her to give her con no educa
tion at that time far b-yond tho ordin
ary. He first attended the common
echool and early in life began the study
of Latin and Greek under the tutelage
of Judge Sherman Finch. He took a
courte in the academy at Norwalk, Ohio,
and in 1837 went to the Isaac
Webb* school at Middleton, Ot,
to prepare for college. In 1838
he entered Kenyon eoheg« at Uumbier,
0. He graduated in 184? and wae
chosen to deliveij the val< dictory. He
entered the law office of Tho mas Spar
rowat Columhus and in 1845 finished
his studies in the law echool of Harvard
university. He was admitted to the
bar tbe same year and established him
self at Lower Sandusky, now known ss
Fremont, and formed a partnership with
Ralph P. Buckland, then congressman.
In 1850 he established hims-lf in Cin
cinnati. In 1852 he married Lucy
Webh, daughter of Dr James Webb of
Chillicothe, ana in 1856 he refused a
nomination for common pleas judge. Is
1858 and '50 he was city solicitor of Cin
cinnati.
Hayes always voted with the Whig
party, and upon the birth of the Repub
lican party allied himself with that or
ganization. At the first outbreak of the
war he tendered his services and was
appointed major of the Twenty-third
regiment Ohio infantry. He was later
appointed judge advocate of the depart
ment of Ohio, was promoted to lieuten
ant-colonelandayear later made colonel
as a reward for bravery. To him is largely
due the credit for routing Morgan's
band and compelling the surrender of
that noted guerrill*. In 1864 Colonel
Hayes'commanded a brigade to cut the
principal lines of communication be
tween Richmond and tbe southwest,
and in the first battle he again made
himself conspicuous by his bravery. At
the battle of Cedar Creek hisconduct at
tracted co much attention that Oeneral
Crook, commanding, stopped him on
the held of battle and made him a
brigadier-general. In 1865 he wae
made major-general.
At the cloee of the war General Haye?
returned to civil life and took a seat iii
congress. He was re elected in 1866
In 1867 he was nominated for governor
of Ohio by the Republicans, having for
his opponent Judge Allen G. Thurtnan
Ho was elected and renominated and re
elected in 1869. In 1872 he was again
nominated for congress in spite of hie
peisonal protests, but was defeated.
He declined tbe office of United States
assistant treasurer under Grant. In
1875 he again accepted the candidacy
for governor, and after the most memor
able campaign in the history of the etate
was elected.
In March, 1876, the Republican state
convention ot Ohio resolved t') present
hie name to the national Republican
convention, which was to meet at Cin
cinnati June 14th, following, as the
state candidate for tbe presidency.
had 61 vet-as on the first ballo',
378 being MMMaary to a choice. His
strength steadily grew until thu seventh
ballot. Al! the elements of antagonism
to James G Blame, who had been the
leading candidate, centered upon Hayes
and gave him the nomination, which,
upon motion of Senator ifrye, was made
unanimous. The incidents tu'osequeut
to his nomination are too well known to
require recounting.

Washington, Jan. 1" —Secretary of
prised at the action of the Canadian
government in announcing that the dis-
criinnatory caual tolls against Ameri
can vessels are not to be maintained
during the coming seasou. The secre
tary has not received official notification
of the British minister oa the subject
for some timp, but received notice infor
mally Saturday of what Has taken place.
The secretary added: "Of course the
new order if officially promulgated
would result in the revocation of Presi
dent Harrison's proclamation of last
putnmer, imposing retaliatory tolls upon
Canadian vessels pausing through the
ship canal at Snulr, Ste. Marie. The
proclamation specifically stated that it
shall not remain in effect after the
Canadian discriminatory tolls are re
moved."
Toronto, Ont., Jan. 17.—The Empire,
the ohief government organ, in an ed
itorial on the government's programme,
says: "A swift line of ocean steamers is
to be established, running batween Can
ada and Great Britain to Asia. The
country is to be made finally indepen

upon Canadian canals by the comple
tion of tho Sault Ste. Marie canal upon

Accident or Suicide?
Sacramento, Jan. 17 —A young man
named Charles Galligan went, to hiß
room in a lodging house this afternoon,
and 40 minutes after a pistol shot wae
heard. On persons entering hia room
he was found dead in front of the bu
reau, with a bullet in hie right temple
and a Distol by his side. It locks like a
case of suicide, but there is no known
reason for his taking his life, being a
young man of Bteadv habits. A friend
says the deceased has several times of
late had trouble in fitting cartridges in
bis pistol, and thinks Galligan was
fooling with the weapon and was shot
accidentally. He ia said to have tela
tives in Los Angelea.

Lepsepa to M. Franqueville. He gave
an oral history of tho Panama bribery,
implicating two more deputies as re
ceivers of regular subsidies from the
Panama c impany. It is alleged he gave
the dates and amounts, and summons

TIIE PANAMA THLAL.
The court room was not thronged
when the trial of Charles de Liesseps and
his associates was resumed today. Ad
vocate (ieneral P#n opened for the pros
ecution. He Baid out of 300,000,000
francs first obtained, three-fifthß were
illegally disposed of. The capital of the
company was so laid open to plunderers
that 700.000,000 francs were squandered,
besides the suinß expended in actually
carrying out the legitimate objects of
tbe company.
Ihe Bpeakar proceeded to analyze and
criticize the large sums paid under the
heading "Remuneration" to directors
of the company, the American commit
tee and other high officials of the com
pany. Pau declared that the payment
made on commission w.,ra outrageously
high. The books of the company were
kept in an irregular manner, and ac
counts manipulated after the conclusion
of contracts.
M. Pau emphasized that newspapes
of ali shades, their editors, directors
aud managerß, received money, and all
sortß of disgraceful transactions were
concealed under the heading "advertis
ing expenses." ....
The advocate general had not flnuhed
hia address when the court adjourned.
PACI'S AND FIGURES.
In the course of "the Panama trial
today the public prosecutor made an
important statement to the effect that
Btill 1,50(),UOO,()00 franca more, and it
would take 15 years to complete it. As
1,400,001,000 francs has already been
spent, tbia would represent a
capital of nearly 3 000 000,000 francs.
The engineers' reports etate that
the maximum profit would be
C ',000,li00 francs per annum, and would
only bo realizable after 12 years' traffic.
Th?se calculations would show barely
2 per cent profit upon the capital in
vested. The conclusion drawn, there
fore, !a that the canal is not possible.
Thiß statement produced a profound
impreiaioo.
lIKRZ TO BE EXTRADITED.
The government has decided to de
mand the extradition of Cornelius Herz
from England upon the charge of swind
ling, which ia oue of the extraditable
offenses provided for by the English
law.
CASSAGNAC SPOILING FOB A DUEL.
Paris, Jan. 17.—Deputy Paul de Cas
sagnac appeared before the parliamen
tary commission of inquiry today, and
reproached Deputy Dutemps, one of the
committee, with having circulated re
ports to the effect that he had accepted
bribes from the Panam* company.
"Such reports," said he, "are unquali
fied falsehoods, and I shall demand per
sonal satisfaction from the man who is
responsible lo r them."
Chairman Briseon assured him tbat
no charge had been made against him
by Deputy Dutemps or any other mem
ber of the commission, aud his integ
rity was not under suspicion.
M. de Casagnac left tbe commission,
however, still protesting his convic
tion that he was slandered, and this
evening he sent a second to M. Dupuy
Dutemps.
A ROYALIST CONSPIRACY.
The* government will soon strike a
blow. It is reported on excellent au
thority that there is nr w ample evi
dence of a Royalist conspiracy, and
arrests will be made at an early date.
The conspiracy has been hatched in
London and Madrid, aad the Count of
Paris, ins'ead of having been especially
close in his expenditures for the Royal
ist cause, has been unusually lavish.
I! • is not managing any details himself,
and it is not desired that he should.
But his leading representatives are more
active than ever. Royalist funds
and influence had much to do with
the recent activity iv revolutionary
circles in Paris. It is reported that
much of the applause of the extremist
speakers at the Tivoli Vauxhall was
furnished by paid Royalist clacquers.
Ihe Royalist plan appears to be to over
throw the republic by some m»ans, no
matter what, and foment aud promote
dieorder in the hope the people will
turn to the count of Paris or the duke of
Orleans for reEoue or protection.
AN ATTACK ON THE BANK OF FRANCE.
Deputy Ptlletan made a violent at
tack today in the chamber of deputies
upon the bank of France, which he said
had increased its note issue by 20 000,
--000 francs in the last few months, to
meet emergencies caused by its own
reprehensible policy.
M. Tirard replied that the present
financial deadlock, consequent upon the
general feeling of apprehension, greatly
hampered commerce and compelled the
bank to draw upon its (told reserve,
which was the guarantee of too Security I
of the national credit.

New York, Jan. 17.— According to the
J .• _ i.„v: -i Ateafinrtan island,
tti c winter has not had an pqual in point
of severity for the past 25 years. Tbe
worst of it is the weather officials here
say no thaw is in sight. The cold spell
today extended from Maine to Florida.
In Maryland, North and South Carolina
the present generation has not before
experienced Buch cold weather, or co

At Newport, R. 1., the inner harbor ie
closed and the ice is fast encroaching
noon the waterß of the outer harbor.
0 mmunication with the torpedo station
is practically shut off. Vineyard eound
is full of heavy ice and navigation is not
tafe to sailing vessels through Storehouse
shoals. Ice for five miles north of
Nantucket is heavily packed. A fleet, of
sound Btenmerß irom Providence, Fall
River and New Haven, bound to New,
York, were blocked in the ice, oif
Whitestone, L. 1., and unable to pro
ceed. This morning the Providence of
the Fall River line, a side wheeler,came
alocg and broke a new track through
the ice, and led the other steamers in a
procession to New York
Heavy ice piled into Delaware break
water today and caused much trouble to
shipping. The German baik Pacific,
from Demarara, with sugar, wan driven
by me on Cape Henlopen, where she
lies in a leaking condition. Several
other vessels have been forced ashore
by the ice, which is very heavy, and
tugs find it difficult work to rescde ship

the gorge continues.
Baltimore, Jan. 17. —Baltimore is
under a blockade by ice. Only the
largest tugboats can work their way
through, and then only under a full
head of steam. Tugboatmen positively
refuse to move steamers from the pierß.

Sacramento, Jan. 17.— Thut "Our
Steve" will be chosen United Statea
senator in the joint convention oi the
legislature at noon tomorrow there ia
not the slightest doubt, and he and hie
numerous lieutenants from the south
and his hundreds of friends who have
flocked here from all over tbe state dur
ing the past few days, are perfectly eaßy
tonight. In fact, they are just as confi
dent as ii the vote had ween announced,
and he had been declared the unani
mous choice of both houses. As I pre
dicted laat night, White received
votes in the assembly this morning.
BUBKE'S VOTE BKCOBDED.
When the name of Burke, non-parti
san, of San Francisco, whose position
has hitherto been a matter of doubt,
was called, a bush fell over the assem
bly chamber and a pin could have been
heard to drop in the crowded galleries;
but when in reply to his name he ot
tered the words "Stephen M. White,"
cheer upon cheer was given, and it wae
in vain that the speaker rapped foi
order, and even after he had succeeded
in quieting the excited audience, an
other outburst occurred, for the Demo
crats realized that the fight had been
won. Burkes vote settled that, aa
there had never been any doubt among
those on the inßide about Kernß. Carl
eon and Burke were doubtful. Burke
had been elected on the straight non
partisan ticket, and all ol his surround
ings were Republican, and it was well
, known tbat all of the influence of Dan
Burns had been brought to bear to Ret
him to vote against White, and np to
the time when he cast his vote very
few knew where it would go.
CABLSON's LOST OPPORTUNITY.
Carlson was in a different positio
He had been elected as an Independei
and was entirely untrammeled. 1'
came from tbe same section as White
who wae tbe choice of 90 per cent of I
constituents, regardless of party, a:
naturally should have cast hia lot with
the man from the south, bat he miss -1
the chance of his life and foolishly thrt
away his opportunity, and eurpris d
everybody by nominating one Reed oi
San Diego and casting his vote for him.
Hiß erratic course ia the talk oi the towu
tonight, and has angered and disgust
the Democrats to such an extent tb: *
he has impaired his usefulness to . 1
constituents on legislation affecting 1.
district and for the balance of the si
sion he will cut a sorry figure.
KERNS WILL VOTE FOR WHITE.
