PARIS, France, Oct. 21.— The funeral of
John W. Mackay Jr., who died Friday
evening from injuries received by being
thrown from his horse at his chateau in
the department of Sarthe, is fixed to take
place in this city to-morrow at noon at the
Roman Catholic Church of St. Ferdinand
do?Ternes. After the obsequies the body
will be placed in the vault ot the church
pending iis shipment to Havre to be con
veyed to America, probably on Saturday.
Mrs. Mackay, the young man's mother,
is still confined to her bed, completely
prostrated with grief and it is not expected
that she will be able to attend the funeral.
Countess Telfener and her daughter and
Mrs. Hungerford have arrived to attend
the obsequies, and are staying at the Ho
tel Brighton, where the Princess Galatro-
Colonna and Clarence Mackay, respect
ively sister and brother, of the deceased,
are stopping. Among the callers at the
Mackay residence, 9 Rite Tilsit, to-day,
were: Mrs. H. Q. Babcock, the Marquis de
Cuoiseul, the Marquis de Mores, Louis
Butterfield and wife, the Count de Pointa
vice, Mrs. .T. W. Homan and daughter, Mr.
Humphrey Moore and wife, Prince Fabyan
Colonna, John Monroe and wife, tne
Comte de Cassaux and M. Michel Mar
The offices of the Commercial Cable
Company here and in Havre will be closed
until after the funeral. The facades of
Mrs. Mackay 's house, 9 Rue Tilsit, in
which the body lies, are massively draped
with silver-frinped black velvet.
The coffin has been placed in the sum
mer dining-room, on the ground floor
facing the Place de l'Etoile, a view of
which is hidden from the mortuary cham
ber by ferns and palms. The mortuary
chamber and anteroom are decorated
with black, relieved by silver cords;
the ceiling of the chamber is covered with
black with silver stars, and the walls are
draped with silver fringe and ornamented
with six shields bearing the initial M.
The coffin is of oak, covered with a white
pall of silver stars and surrounded by
three lighted candles. At the head of the
Cotfin lies a cushion, upon which is a small
silver crucifix and an immense floral
wreath of orchids, camellias and white car

of the most exquisite flowers and wreaths.
Bent by the many friends of the deceased
and his family. The coffin is almost
buried beneath the floral offerings. Clar
ence Mackay placed upon the casket con
taining his brother's remains a magnifi
cent wreath of Parma violets, which was
"Willies favorite flower. The staff of
the Commercial Cable Company at
Havre sent a wreath of violets and
pale red roses. Princess Colonna's three
children— Bianca, Andrea and Marie— each
cent a wreath of chrysanthemums and
white lilies, on which was inscribed, "My
Darling Uncle." Princess Colonna's offer
ing was a wreath of mauve orchids, re
lieved by white lilacs and carnations and
bearing the inscription, in gold letters on
white satin, 'My Own Beloved Willie."
The ensemble of the decorations of the
chapelle ardente is very imp/essive. Large
vases containing masses of white lilacs
stand at the corners of the coffin, while the
corners of the room are occupied by monu
mental candelabra. Ferns and palms con
ceal the lower part of the drapery on the
walls. A nun of the Order of the Immacu

placed pries-deux, where visitors kneel
and pray for the repose of the soul of the
deceased and sprinkle the cofiin with holy
water before leaving. At the head is an
immense cross of whito moire antique,
edged with silver. On leaving the man

The deceased's consideration for others
was shown in a noteworthy manner while
he was being borne on a mattress from the
scene of the accident to a bouse a long dis
tance away. Several times the dying man
said to those who were carrying him, "If
you are tired put me down and rest." The
nis;ht preceding the accident Mr. Dlgby,
who was with Mr. Mackay when he was
thrown from his horse, bad a nightmare,
in which he saw a horseman in jockey
costume, wearing the colors of the de
ceased, killed in a race. He related the
dream at luncheon, but nobody heeded it
further. The accident occurred an hour
later, Mr. Mackay wearing a costume iden

M. H. Gulesian of Armenia talked of the
suffering among his people and asked for
help from the women of America for their

criticized the United States Government.
"We aie in danger of extermination,
seemingly forgotten," he said. "No one
comes forward to help us. This great
country has not offered an official protest
against the outrages of Turkey. O God,
stir up the consciences of your leaders
here. We ask one of the two things from
the civilized nations— get together and
giver us freedom or get together and drown
every Armenian. We are not only wronged
by the Turkish Government, but by the
United States Government as well. The
Judges of Armenian courts are nothing
better than brigands, and many are too
ignorant to read their own language. An
appeal to them avails naught."

never seen a martyr nation to compare

CRIME OF A VETERAN
General yon Adelsheim
Commits Murder and
auit life voluntarily
Unlucky Speculation and Pov
erty Led Up to the
career of the noted soldier.
Took Part in Battles in Italy
and Hungary and Was Duly
VIENNA, Austria, Oct. 21.— A great sen
sation was caused here to-day in military
and other circles by a murder and suicide
committed by an old soldier who had
served his Emperor and country with
much distinction. The suicide was Lieu
tenant-General Gustav Dunst yon Adel
sheim, aged 72 years, who in 1879 was re
tired from the army on a pension.
The murdered person was his wife,
Baroness Abele, aged 50 years. Their
bodies were found lying under a tree in
the Prater, the great park in the environs
of Vienna. Both had been shot with a re
volver, which was found close to the gen
Apparently the general had dispatched
his wife and then killed himself. A note
was found in one of his pockets, reading:
"We quit life voluntarily."
General Dunst yon Adelsheim was highly
honored by the Emperor and had received
a number of decorations. He took part
in several battles in Hungary and Italy
and iv several in the Prusso-Austrian war.
He and his wife, after dressing them
selves in black, left their lodgings together
and walked to the Prater, evidently with
the premeditated design of dying.
The couple were childless. They lived
in an extremely moderate manner, being
encumbered with debts. The general tried
to recoup himself by speculation. His
first venture was to become a shareholder
in a stock company, whose president was
arrested and whose vice-president com
mitted suicide. The general lost every
thing he possessed, and being thus ren
dered destitute the couple resolved to die.
JURORS' KIND WORDS.
Their Review of Benefits From the Cotton
States and International Exhibi
ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 21.— At a meeting
to-day of the jury of highest awards of the
Cotton States and International Exposi
tion an address to the public was adopted.
This jury is made up of the chairmen of
all the special committees of the com
mittee on aware s, which, with Dr. C. Gil
man of the Johns Hopkins University as
chairman, consists of many of the most
eminent men in the United States. The
address in part is as follows:
Cotton States akd )
international exposition, \
Atlanta, Ga., October 21, 1895. )
To the People of the United States: The un
dersigned jurors and members of the highest
board of award haviug visited the principal
departments oi the Atlanta Exposition and
having had the advantage of guidance and
suggestions from the most qualified experts,
think it important to communicate our im
pressions to the public throughout the coun
try by the agency of the newspaper press, in
advance of such reports as may be hereafter
made to the constituted authorities.
We desire to call attention to the educational
value of the Atlanta Exposition, its Important
relations to industry and its manifold indica
tions of the progress of the useful and liberal
arts. But in this brief paper we can only in
dicate a few ox the most significant character
istics. The exhibits of the National Govern
ment constitute a unique, complete and in
structive illustration of its wise and beneficent
functions. With a building of moderate riza
examples are given of the work of the Federal
Government in its relations to statesmanship,
international intercourse, the administration
of justice, the promotion of commerce — domes
tic and foreign— the postal service and
Uie control of the National linances;
the arts of National defense on land and
sea; the development of agriculture, forestry,
miues and mineral wealth, fisheries and fish
culture; the protection and promotion of com
merce by surveys of the coa3t, the lakes, the
rivers and tho mountains; the study of the
climate and the forecasting of the weather;
the maintenance of lighthousua and life-saving
stations; the education ana civilization of
Indians; the encouragement of invention,
literature and the fine arts, by protecting the
rights of the inventor, the writer and the
artist; the advancement and diffusion of
knowledge through the agency of the Smith
sonian Institution, the National Museum; the
manifold services of the Bureau of Education
and the collection of great libraries; the study
of the diseases of the human race and also of
plants and animals; and the protection of life
by cautionary and remedial agencies, the pre
vention of epidemics, and the regulation of
the food supply; these all, exhibited in a com
pact form, bring before the people the noblest
offices of a strong, conservative, well-organized
government, and arc the best exhibits of the
kind thut ever have been made.
There are many admirable signs of inter
state co-operation and social intercourse. The
visits of theFresidentand ViCti-President of the
United States, of the Governors of many dis
stant States (often attended by large escorts of
our follow-citizens), the assemblies of bankers,
engineers, teachers, women of religious and
philanthropic associations and of patriotic so
cieties, the recognition of the African, and es
pecially the meeting of many thousands of sol
diers in friendly intercourse— the blue and the
gray homeward bound from Ohickamauga—
illustrate the good will and fraternity now
prevalent among the citizens of our united re
public and the re-establishment of not only
peace but of sympathy among those who have
been widely separated.
In addition to the buildings of the cotton
States those constructed by New York, Penn
sylvania, Massachusetts and Illinois and that
of California with its contents afford addi
tional evidences of this lriendly relationship.

The addresses made in tho presentations

on the anti- Venezuelan dispute, says:

PARIS, France, Oct. 21.— The Figaro,
alluding to the Venezuelan dispute, ex
presses the opinion that the system of issu
ing ultimatums which ie now becoming a
habit with Gieat Britain may be greatly
prejudicial to the general peace.
The Globe publishes a note saying that
as the British ultimatum to Venezuela has
not yet reached its "destination, it is not
considered desirable to publish any of its
details. It is croper to state, however,
that the document is worded in terms of
firmness and force. The communication,
the Globe also says, was not transmitted
through any representative of Vene
zuela in England, diplomatic relations
between the two countries haviug been
broken off some years ago, and no longer
existing. The note further says that the
ultimatum informs the Government of
Venezuela that the Government of Great
Britain will not permit of any overstep
ping of Venezuela of the boundaries
marked by the course of the Cuyuni and
Auracura rivers. Great Britain, however,
expresses willingness to submit to arbitra
tion the question of other territories in
dispute beyond that limit.
The Pall Mall Gazette asserts that the
ultimatum will be presented through Senor
Rodriguez, Venezuelan Consul in London.
The Pall Mall Gazette also says should it
be decided by the Government to take
naval action against Venezuela, the move
ment would be confided to Vice-Admiral
James E. Erskine, in command of the
North American and West Indian squad
ron. The disposition of the vessels of the
fleet at the time of his last communication
with the Admiralty Navy Department in
Whitehall was as follows:
Crescent, at Halifax; Canada, at Barba
does; Magacienne, Tartar and Rambler, at
the Bermudas; Mohawk and Tourmaline,
at Jamaica; Partridge, at the Bahamas,
and Cleopatra, Pelican and Buzzard, in
The announcement of the ultimatum
contained in the note published in the
Globe is officially authorized.
The Daily News will to-morrow say:
"It is little to the credit of diplomacy that
the Venezuelan question has been so long
unsettled. The most serious aspect of the
question is not so much in Venezuela as in
the United States. There are many Bigns
that public opinion in the latter country
may be greatly disturbed by the British
demand for reparation, complicated by
the boundary claim. The dispute wiil
need to be managed with tne greatest tact
and good temper by both sides, both by
the respective governments and the press."
The paper refers to Trinidad and con
tinues: "In each case we have to consider
public sentiment in the United States and
set an example of moderation and self
control without which it will be difficult
to bring these irritating disputes to a happy

Grass Valley lie His oi
.to Haw One. •
But It Was Not in Gold
.■ That He "Struck It."
It is funny to watch the man who goes out to
make his fortune in a way that is "out of the
groove." Sometimes he will appear in the
guise of the lottery fiend; «gain he will appear
as a dabbler in stocks; anent he is to be found
as a gold mine prospector, and he has been
heard of as trying to find gold on gooseberry
bushes. In .any case he is a man without an
object— a careless, reckless and usually worth-
less chap, whose duty to humanity fin his
mind) is made up of getting rich at "some one
else's expense. That is not the type of man
though, who carries, his life In his hand from
day to day. and who really works hard to se-
cure'fortune's favors. He is usually a sterling,
whole-souled fellow, fearing nothing, though
he risks much. One of the sterling sort of
searchers after ''luck" who has recently "struck
it rich" is Mr. A. Burton of Grass Valley. He
was unable to pursue I. is arduous calling as a
miner because he was prostrated with a serious
disease. He thought there was no relief for
him and he began to look at death as a cer-
tainty. He had not heard of the grand old
Hudson Medical Institute then. But he went
there and he is cured now. "Health is more
than wealth." His good fortune was health.
In a letter to the managers oi that great insti-
tution he says:
Grass Valley, Cal.,
• August 15. 1895.
Hudson Medical Institute,
San Francisco, Cal. - v ;•-•>-
Gentlemen: I left Gold Valley on the 3d of
June, and I have been to Nevada and all
through the mining camps seeking to find
"good times," arid that is the reason I suppose
that I did not get your letters before. At
present I am not doing anything and money is
scarce. The medicine I took did me lots of
good, and as soon as I am "In funds" I shall
certainly send for some more.
See how with "hard times" practically star-
ing him in the face, this decent fellow ex-
presses his thanks for what has been done for
him by the skilled physicians at the great in-
stitute which is located at the corner of Mar-
ket, Stockton and Ellis streets. And he is only
one among many thousands of decent grateful
men. For instance, among those who have re-
cently felt impelled to thank the specialists
for what has been done for them: y■>
S. J. Bailey of Weavervllle says: "After two
months' treatment by you I feel lully restored
K. C. Taft of Stowe, Cal., say»: "I am feeling
fine without a sign of the-disease now."
J. T. Ward of Park City, Utah, writes: "I am
very pleased to say that I am cured of the terri-
ble disease that I had."
There is not a single State or Territory in the
Union from which equally satisfactory In-
dorsements do not come, and it is now becom-
ing to be a proverb (for it is the pure and un-
adulterated truth) that if you are ill and can
be cured THE HUDSON MEDICAL INSTITUTE
is by far the best place to go to. THERE RE-
LIEF IS CERTAIN.
