Cleveland ha been serious ly 111 from tini eto time, the an nouncement of his death came like a thunderbolt, to those watching his lllnpss. Last night there was a slight flurry among his friend, occasioned by tho visit of Dr. Dryant of New York, Cleveland's physician for many years. Mrs. Cleveland, later In the evening discussing Bryant's visit said there was no occasion for alarm and that her husband was getting along nicely. This reassurance totally un prepared their friends for any an nouncement of death. Thosp who were at the bedside of the former president when the'end came, were, Mra. Cleveland, and three physicians.

Doctors Bryant and Lockwood, who came from New York early yes terday evening remained at the Cleveland home all night. When they visited the patient this morning they found him Indisposed as one ex pressed It. and Dr. Carnochan, who lives In Princeton was asked to step over. Shortly after 8 o'clock he seemed to fail materially and tho physicians worked hard over their patient using every resource pos- sblo. Finally he lapsed Into uncon sciousness and the end came at 8:40. It la believed that tho terrific heat of tho last few days contributed In a great degree to the' sudden death. Arrangements for the funeral will be made this afternoon. Tho following bulletin was Issued to the Associated Tress today: "The funeral of former President Cleve land, will bo held Friday, June 26, at 'W'estland, ' Cleveland's residence on Hayard Lane, Princeton, and will be strictly private."

The White House re reived Its first news of the death from tho Associated Tress. Secre tary Cortclyou who Is senior cabinet officer In Washington, at present, is now acting head of the administra tion. The first word that came to Cortclyou. from Oyster Ray was an Instruction In which tho secretary was Immediately asked to advise all executive departments to place their flags at half mast . It Is probable they will thus remain for thirty daya. Secretary Cortclyou made the fol lowing Ftatpment regarding Cleve land: "AJthough not entirely unexpect ed by thoFe ho knew Cleveland's real rondition, his death is none the leps keen and sorrowful. Ho wan of a fine American type, rising from ob scurity to the highest office In the peoplo's gift, through his sheer force of character, so rugged, bo loyal, and so sincere to exclto not only tho respect and affection of those who were privileged to be his friends, but. those opposed to him, for political or other reasons. 1 know of no man in our history more unflinching In tne performance of what he believed to bo his duty. No man realized more fully the Ideal of an Incor ruptible public servant; his example has been most wholesome in these years of social and economic unrest, nd the Influence of tain calm, rea sonable and hopeful spirit has made for a better understanding of the needs and responsibilities of our cit izenship. His death Is a great loss to the country." , - Taraworth, N. H., Juno if irs. Terrlne, mother of Mrs. Cleveland, received the news of the former pres ident's death over tho long distance telephone. Tho three Cleveland chil dren aro with Mrs. Perrlne Ht Cleve land's summer homo here. While no definite, arrangements have been made yet It Is believed they will leave for Princeton Immediately. Although the death of Cleveland occurred before 9 this morning, no word has been received at Cleve land's summer homo here, from the physician up to 1 o'clock. A mes sage was telephoned to tho man ager of the estate by the Associated Press, but he refused to make it known to the household. He ex plained there had been so many ru mors concerning Cleveland's condi tion ho would not communicate with the members of the household here until he received word from perso nal friends of the family In Prince ton. These ho said wore his In structions. Cleveland's place Is In an Isolated district far removed from telegraph stations and railroads. Grover Cleveland's history through out teems with Items of Interest, and that ho truly was "president" while occupying tho chair cannot be gainsaid. First sheriff of Krlp county, N. Y., then mayor of Buffalo, later gover nor of New York, It was to hlni but a btep higher to tho presidency. All there offices were thrust upon him because he ably filled first the small er, then tho greater and lastly the greatest. Just after ho had east his own VQ'im on election day, 1R82, when he vas the Democratic candidate for governor of New York and knew that the returns would uhow. hia trl- nmph he wrote I letter to hb broth er, the Kev. William Oewhnd, In w til li be mid : "I will tell you first of !l oihers the policy Intend to ad'tpt, and that is to make the matter a Imainoss rn ragemcnt between the people and myself, In which the obllgailim on my side Is to perform the duties as signed to me with an eye tinwle to th0 Interest of my rniplojcrs. 1 shall have no Idea of re-elecibm or of a'ly high political preferment lu my bead. but. be er.vyank lul and happy If I serve one term as the people's governor.' Cleveland was In n.'(y quarters dealt with us being a v.'n o no par ticular brilliancy, an a lawyer be was mediocre, but to his Inaatu persist ency may bp credited many, aye, pearly all of his success. It wa his famous message to con gress recommending a "tarlif for revenue only' which worked most largely toward his defeat by Ben jamin Harrison In 1 SS. This mes sage came right on the eve of tho presidential nominations and was promulgated against the advice of party leaders. In tho stupendous struggle for the maintenance of the KM standard as against bimetallism Cleveland took a firm stand for the yellow metal. The majority of bis party went the other way, thus nuking line of cleavage that yawned like a chasm. The president railed an rtra ses sion of congress In the summer of 1 s f3 and pushed through the re peal of the Sherman act of lSfiu, which required the government t i purchase large quantities of silver bullion.
