ENVOI CLEVE LAND IS DEAD i EX-PRESIDENT PASSES AWAY AT HIS HOME IN PRINCETON, X. J., AGED 71 YEARS. Princeton. X. J., June 2 4—Formar President Grover Cleveland died at his home here at 8:40 o'clock this morning with Mrs. Cleveland at his bedside. He suffered a relapse yesterday, but was thought to have rallied Hst r.ight. The physicians, who have steadfastly denied that the case wa serious now admit that it was hope less a month ago. The patient lost 150 pounds in the last two months. The announcement of the death was made by Dr. Joseph D. lirya.it by telephone to Xew York, where it was made public before it was known here. The official statement, signed by Dis. Bryant, George B. Lock wool end J. U. Carnochan, says the direct cause of death was "Heart failure brought on by pulmonary thrombose an i oedema." Dropsy of the Lungs. The technical terms used in the statement issued by the physicians are translated into ordinary language to mean dropsy of the lungs, caused by a blood clot having formed. The Cleveland children are at the family home at Tamworth, X. H., where, they are in the care of their maternal grandmother, Mrs. Perrine. The news of the death was not made public until two hours after ir had actually occurred. At the time Cleveland was dying, the reports from the residence said he was im proving. The announcement of the death of former President Grover Cleveland at his home here this morning was a great shock to the quiet little uni versity town, which had been en couraged to believe its most promi nent citizen was progressing well. Since his reurn to his home here from Lakewood the reports continu ally have beeu favorable, though they have been somewhat mysterious. Pale and worn by the long vigil el yesterday and last night and by the months through which she pre sented the most encouraging appear ance, Mrs. Cleveland today is bearing uj. bravely. She announced that tbt funeral arrangements have not l> <in made, but that the. service probably will be held in Princeton. The doctors announced that Cleve land was conscious until within ten !:>ii"nes of his death. The end was peaceful and was not accompanied by pain.

Reports that he was suffering from cancer of he stomach were constantly denied and it was said that h's IH ii' -.- was an affection of the digestive! org*ns which would not give him much serious trouble. The only ex piauation of the constant attention of the physicians was that he wis a heavy man, and at his age any illness might be serious. < v eer of Ex-President Cleveland.

MILWAUKEE RUSHES WORK TERMINALS AT TACOMA NOW BEING CONSTRUCTED FOR THE NEW ROAD. Tacoma. June 23.—Milwaukee railroad engineers began rushing the work for their terminals here today on a large scale. Nearly two hun dred men were set to work on the deep cut on East F street, and the force, of men and teams working on Portland avenue west to Pacific ave nue was increased. This morning a party of the road's engineers began running a line up the west branch of Gallagher's gulch from the pas senger station site at Pacific avenue, and Twenty-sixth street for the freight branch that the road expects to run up Commerce street. The franchise for this spur is still pend ing in the council. Tomorrow six piledrivers will he put to work at the mouth of Puyal lup river, making ready the hulk heads for the road's ocean terminals. On account of the character of the ground work on the Puyallup river bridge is going slow. Crews of Union Pacific laborers are pushing the work of slashing the right-of-way and grading for tracks in the southern suburbs of the city. The date of commencement of work on the tunnel has not yet been an nounced. THE CIRCUS IS COMING NORRIS & ROWE*S BIG SHOW TO BE HERE TOMORROW.—PREP ARATIONS FOR BIG CROWD.

The superior court is in ses sion today, but. it has been passed along the line that a number of the jurors have already begun to feel faint on account "of the close atmos phere in the court house," and will probably ask for a. vacation tomor row "in order to allow them to get a breath of fresh air."
