The Idaho Senators Growing Weary
WASHINGTON Jan 20Special telegram
t THE HEHALP The Idaho Senator are
growing weary They lave been waiting
patiently for the President to movo in the
mattter of the judgeship but for some rea
son declines to do so Dubois has given
up the fight He would like to see Sulli
van or Angel appointed if he cannot get
Price but he is now satisfied Boatty will
be nominated Beattys selection will be
entirely satisfactory to McConnell who I
only loiued iifan endorsement of Price as a
courtesy to his associates Governor
tshoup however still clings to the belief I I
that if it be not Price it will at least fall to j I
Sullivan or AngeL He tells me he does
not think the President will go as far a to
ignore the two Senators from Idaho and
force upon them the appointment of a man
t whom they are violently opposed
It was evident from tiiis suggestion of
Governor Shoups that he has not yet
familiarized himself with the methods of
the man in tIre White House Harrison as
lie will learn before the close of his term
is a law unto himself and he is quite as I
indifferent to the wishes of a Senator as he
would be to those of a ward politician
where it pleases him t be I
I asked Governor Shoup if bo would an
tagonize Beattys contirmation i the Pres
ident nominated him He hesitated a mo
ment and then with blunt candor replied
No I shall not I believe if I tried that I
could defeat his confirmation but I wont
do it I regard such acton as small and
unworthy a man upon whom the dignity
of a senatorship has been placed I Mr
Beatt is miminatedl shall vote for his
confirmation notwithstanding my personal
objection to him S

in these matters he can easily and success
fully execute a plan to obtain the perma

At S a Banquet i His Honor at
The First Toast of the Evening Tho Cause
Was Heart Failure and ComaThe
News In Washington
NEW YORK Jan 29Hon William Win
dom secretary of the treasury of the
United States died tonight at 1005
oclock in the banquet hal Delmonicos
where he was tho guest of the New York
board of trade and transportation His had
been the first toast of the evening He had
finished his response and seated himself
and swooned at once and died almost im
mediately Every effort to restore him was
made but in vain He died of heart dis
ease The great assemblage uta once dis
solved Mr Windom had been the only
speaker and the sentiment to which he re
sponded was Our countrys prosperity
dependent upon its instruments of com
In the early evening the members of the
board of trade and transportation theth
in the reception parlors at Delmonicos und
welcomed the guests and friends who had
come from nOun and far Perhaps the
most prominent were Secretaries Windom
and Tracy of the treasury and navy re
spectively Nova Scotia had a representa
tive in the person of her attorneygeneral
Mr Longley Canada too was there in
the person of Hon Wilford Laurier Mr
Windom dignified of mien as usual was
apparently in perfect health
All formed a jolly procession to tho ban
quet bal where the members and guests
were seated the members at tables upon
the floor and the guests at long tables upon
a raised platform The aged Captain Am
brose Snow president of the board was in
tho centre place At his right he seated
Mr Windom and upon his left Mr Bay
ard Tno dinner was completed shortly
after 9 oclock and Windom introduced by
Iudge Arnoux responded to the toast
Our countrys prosperity dependent
upon its instruments of commerce
Secretary Wisdom confined his remarks
to transportation and money Under the
first head he spoke strongly of the decadence
of our foreign carrying trade and said if
we would regain our lost prestige we must
make the conquest with the same weapons
which proved so successful in the hands of
our rivals
On the topic of money the secretary said
an ideal financial system would be one that
should furnish just enough absolutely
sound currency to meet tie legitimate
wants of trade and have enough elasticity
of volume to adjust itself to the
varying necessities of the peo
ple Should such a medium be
secured the gravo commercial disasters
which threatened our future might be
averted These disasters always come when
unusual activity in business causes an ab
normal demand for money as in the autumn
for the movement of our immense crops
There will always be great danger at those
times uncer any cast iron system of cur
rency such as we now hayo Had it not
not been for the peculiar condition
which enabled the United States
treasury to disburse over 73000
Out in two and a half months last
tail the stringency would have resulted in
widespread financial rum In the opinion
of the secretary our bonded debt should be
in part exchanged for interconvertible
bonds bearing low rate of interest and al
ways interchangeable for money at the
will of the people
Believing there is not enough of either
gold or silver in the world to meet the
necessities of business the secretary said he
was an earnest bi metalist and conceded to
no onn a stronger desire lor the free and
unlimited coinage of silver aa soon as the I
conditions can be reached through inter S
national agreement or otherwise by which
sui h coinage shall be safe But it was
his firm conviction that for this
country to enter upon that experiment now
would resultant in bimetalisin but in sil
ver monomotblism which would produce
swift and sure contraction and eventually
reduce the market alue of silver
In conclusion the secretary said Give
us direct and ample transportation facilities
ties under the American flag and con
trolled bjv American citias a cur
rency sound in quality and adequate
in quantity an international bank to
facilitate exchanges and a system of re
ciprocity carefully adjusted within the
lines of protection and not only
will our foreign commerce again in
mile every sea but every American
industry will be quickened and our whole
people leel tho impulse of a new and endur
lug prosperity
He finished his speech at 933 1 It had
been remarked he was reading it off hur
rieuiy from printed copy going faster and
faster as he neared the end and at last he
had requested the audience not to applaud
A quiver of fear shot through the niacin
blage like an electric shock as the speaker
finished Windom was standing erect under
the glare of the gas lights with the faces
of all turned toward him For a moment
the secretary stood silent while the ban
quetters equally silent watched him I
was a moment that no one who was t
will ever forget Then Mr Windom sat
down quietly too quietly
many thought
in his seat and the toast master arose to
introduce oxSecretary of State Bayard as
the next speaker He began a short speech
but had not proceeded far when Mr Win
dom gave a short sharpmoan of anguish
and fell back in his chair His face
grow purple his lower limbs stiffened
and he stretched out under the table
His eyelids opened and shut spasmodically
but there was no gleam of intelligence in
the eyes which were rapidly losing the
lustre of life The cigar which he had been
smoking was held between the grim clinch
of nis teeth For only a moment ho ap
peared thus A cry went up from those
sitting near guest table Look I Look at
Mr Windom Every eye was turned
toward the man whose voice had
just ceased As they looked he
collapsed in his chair and was falling to the
floor His face was ghastly and a cry of
horror arose from the late festive banquet
tens There was an immediate rush on the
part of all toward Wincioms chair but sev
eral doctors who were present at
the dinner sot there first and drove
the others back Thoy were Drs
Robinson Durant Whitney Fisher
and Bishop Dr Robinson bent
down and making a close examination of
the prostrate form discovered the heart
was yet beating and with the assistance
of Judge Truax Captain Snow and one or
two others carried him into the room be
hind the banquet hall and everything was
done to resuscitate him Messengers were
hastily dispatched for electric Batteries
and as many as four were applied to his
body but it was rapidly growing
cold This was exactly 1005 pm For
six minutes the electric shocks were ap
plied incessantly but without success Ho
was pronounced dead I would say the
cause of death was apoplexy said Dr
Robinson if it was not for the history of
heart disease I am inclined to think heart
disease killed Mr Windom as he was sub
ject to fits of heart failure On Tuesday
last ho was seized with an attack while on
the steps of the treasury at Washington
but he did not lose consciousness and was
able to take care himself
At 1011 pm Judge Arnout came out of
the room where lay Mr Windom and an
n to the diners that Secretary
Winaom whom they had the pleasure of
hearing only a few minutes before had
breathed his l2t hF
U s J
Heis deade said This was the an
nouncement that was uttered in a voice
midway between a sob and a whisper
though that gaily bedecked banquet hail
around which still hung the funeral pall of
th e smoke of the afterdinner cigar He
is dead The words went to the heart of
every man who heard them They could I
hardly believe that the brilliant mater of a
few moments before aglow with enthu
sas mat predicting the future policy in
the treasury was now only inanimate
clay His voice was forever silenced and
hi s last words were for his country
Silence fell upon the men who were only a
feM w minutes before clamoring for news of
Mr Windom Judge Arnaux retiring
with the unconscious man bad announced
Windom had only fainted and it was not
I thought by those who remained that it was
1 as serious as it proved to be
When it was officially announced that
the secretary was dead Secretary
Tracy at onco went to the nearest telegraph
office and to Presi
graph ofce sent a message
dent Harrison informing him of the un
timely event and requesting him to com
municate with Mrs Windoin and have her
start on the 1110 pm train to New York
This will bring Mrs Windom to tho city
by 7 oclock this morning and not until
then can any arrangements be made for
th e removal of the body
The scene that ensued when death was
officially announced is beyond description
in mere words Gradually the excitement
abated and the death certificate was
issued signed by Drs Whitney and Robin
son giving the cause of death as first
cerebral hemorrhage and second coma
Undertaker Huyler of Grace church was
summoned and put in charge of the re
mains The body was taken to room 25 of
the Fifth Avenue hotel where Secretary
Tracy and AttorneyGeneral Miller re
ceived it
LATER President Snow telegraphed to
President Harrison that the body would be
se nt to Washington on a special train in
the morning in charge of a special commit
Breaking the News to Mrs Wiiulom
WASHINGTON Jan 29The announce
ment of tho sudden death of Secretary
Vindom in New York tonight was so ter
ible sudden and unexpected that all who
eard tho news were profoundly shocked
and so overcome as to be unable to ex
press the grief they felt As soon as the
telegram bearing the sad intel
g ence was received by the Associ
ated Press its contents were immedi
ately communicated to President Harrison
at the White House He was in tho
li ibrary at the time talking with Mrs Har
rison and when the message was read to
him ho was greatly distressed and almost
completely overcome He immediately or
dered his carriage and went at once to the
house of the postmastergeneral but a few
blocks away where a cabinet dinner
had been in progress and from
which he had returned but a few minutes
before A reception had followed
the dinner so the guests had not all dis
persed Mrs Windom and her two daugh
ters and Mrs Colgate of New York who
i s visiting them were among those present
As soon as the President arrived he had a
hurried conversation with Secretaries
Blaine and Proctor and the post
master general and told them of
the grief that had befallen them They
then privately informed Mrs Colgate of
Mr Windoms death and she without ex
citing the suspicion of Mrs Windom and
her daughters succeeded iri getting them I
to their carriage and home The Presi
dent Secrethry Proctor and Postmaster
eneral Wanamaker entered carriages I
and followed directly after When Mrs
Windom and her daughte reached their
house Mrs Colgate gently broke the dread
ful news to the bereaved widow and daugh
ters Mrs Windom was completely over S
come and han to be assisted to her cham
ber The shock was u terrible one as
when the secretary left Washington this
morning ho seemed in the best of I
b ud spirits The President and members
of the cabinet who
Itho were present extended I
their sympathy to the stricktJn family and I
offered their services to them
News of the death spread with wonder
ful rapidity and although the hour was
late a large number of friends went to the
residence of Mrs Windom to express sym
pathy with her and her daughters No
official action will be taken until tomorrow
Probably no member of the Presidents
official family was more highly esteemed
than Secretary Windom and the
SElcarr Vincom expres
sions of sorrow from phe President and
those of his cabinet Washington indicate
how highly they prized his friendship and
valued his counsel As the bulletin an
nouncing somewhat in detail the secretarys
death wus read to the President while still
at the ppstmas ergenerals house ho
covered his with his hand and
hil eyes wih moved
awaywithout uttering a word so greatly
was he moved He subsequently said he
regarded it as a great calamity which af
fected him sorely
Secretary Biaine in speaking of Mr
Window said he was a valuable
very mem
ber of the cabinet and had worked with
intense zeal since entering upon the duties
of his office His death was a great loss to
the administration He was exceedingly
popular with members of the cabinet Mr
Blaine said and he did not think one of
them ever had had an unfriendly word
with him since tho cabinet was formed
Secretary Proctor said words could not
express tho feeling that all experienced in
the secretarys death Their personal re
lations were most friendly
Secretary Noble said the deceased was
j the most delightful and lovable man whom
he ever met
PostmaaterGeneral Wanamakor said
I isithe first break in the cabinet and a
greaT loss to the country With his groat
ability there was every quality and grace
to make an ideal man Every one loved
himSecretary Rusk did not hear of his death
until late in the evening when he at onco I
repaired to Mrs Windoms house and
tendered his services and sympathy
