NEW YORK STATESMEN SUC
CUMBS TO ATTACK OF
HEALTH WAS FEEBLE
MATRIMONIAL TROUBLE MAY RE
SULT IN LITIGATION OVER
New York.—Thomas Collier Platt,
formerly United States senator from
New York, and for many years a na
tional figure in Republican politics,
died at 3:45 o'clock Sunday afternoon
in the apartment of Mr. and Mrs. Gus
tav Abele, on West Eleventh street,
from whom he had rented three rooms
for the last four years. Mrs. Abele
had been his nurse.
Dr. Paul Auterbridge, his physician,
said tonight that the cause of death
was chronic and acute Bright's dis
ease. The body was removed to the
home of Frank H. Platt, a son, and
will be taken on Tuesday to Owego,
N. Y., the senator's birthplace, where
It will be buried. Funeral services will
be held Wednesday at the Presbyte
rian church in Owego.
The end was startlingly sudden. An
hour before the senator died his two
sons, Frank and Edward, with their
families, and his widowed son, Harry,
with the latter's daughter, Charlotte,
and son, Sherman, bad left the house,
after their usual Sunday vislL The
senator said at that time that he felt
very well and thought he would read
the Sunday papers. At 3 o'clock he
was taken with a fainting spell and
Dr. Auterbridge was hurriedly called.
The family w-as notified and returned
in haste. Mr. Platt recovered from his
first lapse, but sank into unconscious
ness again at half past 3, and died fif
teen minutes later. The relatives were
all at the bedside.
Only last Wednesday, Senator Platt
was at his office down town. For sev
eral years he had been in feeble
health and latterly the use of his legs
had almost deserted him.
The death of Senator Platt has given
rise to many rumors and has revived
discussion of his matrimonial ventures
in the latter years of his life, which
brought him a great deal of notoriety
and which may result in prolonged liti
gation over his estate.
