Pasadena, Cal., Feb. 27, George F.
Kdmunds, former United States senator
from Vermont, died hero to-day after a
long Illness. Ho was 91 years old.
George Franklin Kdmunds was United
States senator from Vermont for 25
years, from 1866 to 1891, acquiring such a
reputation as a statesman that on two
occasions in the early '80s his name was
presented In the Republican National Con-
he received only 34 votes, but In 1884,
93 votes were cast for him.
Though never president, he was known
as advisor of presidents. President
Grant publicly acknowledged that Ed
munds was one of the men to whom he
was most Indebted for counsel.
Born on a farm at Richmond, Vt.,
February 1, 1828, his education was In
tho common schools and by private tutor,
but during his life-time he received
honorary degrees from four New Eng
land colleges. He studied and prac
ticed law in his native town, and In 1851
he removed to Burlington, where the
legal talent of his State was concen
trated. He became speaker of the House,
then president of the Senate of the Ver
mont Legislature. In March, 18(6, he
was appointed to supply the vacancy In

POLL TAX BILL RECALLED
The Senate to-day voted to recon
sider the bill empowering Vermont
women to vote by payment of poll tax,
which ineas.re was killed yesterday. The
bill was ordered to lie.
Tho Senate will meet Saturday morn
ing and immediately adjourn until Wed
nesday evening. The House will do like
wise, both branches transferring the
Saturday calendar to March 6.
Most of the afternoon session of the
House was spent In discussion of H.
170, providing for the licensing of Junk
dealers. This bill was passed yesterday,
but there seemed to bo some dissatisfac
tion in regard to it. The House, how
ever, refused reconsideration.
The House this afternoon concurred In
tho Senate proposal of amendment to H.
53, providing that Insurance companies
shall be responsible for the acts of their
agents; rejected S. 44, relating to service-furnished
by electric companies and
providing for discontinuance of service
on non-payment of charges therefor. On
motion of Mr. Child of Woybridge. H.
151, relating to the formation of savings
banks and of trust companies, was or

In 1S82 he Introduced a measure for the
suppression of polygamy In Utah, and
tho dsifranchlsement of those who fol

known ns the Edmunds act, was brought
before the Supreme Court, and upheld In
decisions that were given In a series of
cases. In the year before he voluntarily
retired from the Senate, he closed his
long political career by helping to draw
up that famous anti-trust law which
bears tho name of the Sherman act.
