LOUD TENNYSON DEAD.
Knarland'e Pse'. Laureate Paaevd Peaos
fully Away to Unknown Shores.
Iird Tennyson, the l'oet Ijmreale of
England, died at l o'clock Thursday
morning, at his home in Ixindon.
In an Interview with Htr Andrew Clarke,
one of the physlnlati who attended the
l'oet Laureate, he said that Lord Tennyson's
death was the most glorious Hint hn Imd
ever seen. There was no artificial light in
the room, and the chamber was almost In
darkness savo where a broad flood of moon
light poured in throuitli a western window,
Tlie moon's rays fell across tho bed upon
which the dying man lay, bathing him In
their Pellucid light ami forming a Item
brandt like background to the scone. All
was silent save Hie annulling of tlie wind as
It RPiitly piny el through the trees surround.
Ing the house a lltt tig reiiilein for the
gentle oet, who Sting of love und the beau
tips of nature.
Motionless linl Tennyson lay upon his
couch, the tide of his life gently nml slowly
ebbing out Into tho wean of the inllultii. Nn
rocks of pain or Sorrow checke I Its roiirso
or rnuseij a ripple upon tho outgoing tide.
As ieacelully mid gently us he hnd lived, so
he died, looking until the end Into tho eyes
of those dear to him. All tho inemheia of
his family were by his hid-dde, mid Sir
Andrew t 'larko remained by his aide until
he breathed his Inst. Ho gentle mid painless
was his pns.lng away Hint the family did
Hot know hn had gone gone until Dr.Clarko
broke tlie news to Lady Tennyson, who bore
the closing cenes of her trial well In spite
of her extremely delicate health.
The Hon. Mr. Itiilhiiii Tennyson, now
Irfird Tennyson, ariys his father's death wns
eminently (leaceful and there wns not Iho
slightest trace of suffering, (lin e or twice
during the night he smiled nt those sitting

appeared as one going to s eep.

and vicar of (Irimshy Alfred was taught
the rudimentary subjects, partly at home
ndpnrtlvnt "Eadneys Village Heltool."
Alfred Te'nnyson'e first verses wero written
iiMin the inoilel of Thomson's "Hensons."
In 1HLW he went to Trinity College Cum
bridge, and 1H.1I gained a gold medal for a
poem on Tlmbuctoo. He published his
iirst volumo about this time, and in 12 his
second volumo was published
hy Mr. Ed word Moxon.
Ihe story Hint "I.ocknlcy Hull" wns baaed
upon per-nnnl experience is said to huve
not the slightest foundation.
In 1M.V) ho was married lo Miss Emily
Sellwood, and in the same year succeeded
Woodsworth as poet laureate, and produced
nn the day of the funeral of the tltiko of
Wellington (November, 1nV2.) his immortal
"Ode." The t'li mean wur exerted a de
pressing efloct on the sensitive genius, as
evidenced by his poem "Maud." After a
silence ol several years the series of "Idyls
of the King," embracing four stories in
blank verse, druwn from the Arthurian le
gends, restored the p let's waning popular
Hy, and was generully accepted as his great
est poetical effort, a verdict continued tun
years later when the cycle was completed
by tho publication of the "Holy (Jruil and
Other Poems" VlHOO), In tho Inlervnl be.
t ween the publication of tho se. ond of his
Idvls Tennyson had iuued "Enoch Arden '
(l&li). He tins since then
published the "Window, or the
bongs of the "Wrens" (1870)
and several dramas, lyrics, ballads etc.
"A Concordance to ti e entire Works of
Alfred Tennyson," published in 1x 0, is
remarkable proof of the Laureate's wonder
f ill iiopulurity. At the Commemoration of
1K&3, the University of Oxfonl, giving ex
pression to the uni venal feeling of Englund,
conferred on the poet the honorary degree
of I). C. L., and the fallows of his own col
lege, Trinity. Cambridge, endorsing tho
Judgment of the sister university, subscrib
ed to purchase his bust (by Woollier), which
they uavo placed In the vestibule of their
library, and in lMtiu th y unanimously elect

Tennyson's admirers recall one of the most
beautiful lyrics of the English language,
written by ihe poet in his Hoth year, on this
very subject of death. It tonus a fitting
long for his own going out. It is entitled
"Crossing the llur," and is as follows:

WHAT IS TREASON t
A Letter oaths Subjsot from Ex'Ohlef
Ju lee Aanew.
Th ntUhurg (Pa.) Comnwrclat Oatrltt
requested Chief Justice Agnew'i opinion a s
to what constituted "Treason," and re.aivd
the following reply:
To the Editor of the Commercial Oatotl.
The Cnmmereinl Oaxrtt asks my opinion, i
as lo treason rgninst tneHtate.
At the ni.taet I must say 1 can give nona
as to the Homestead cases. They are in the
hands of the Judiciury and it would be toe
proper to interfere. ,
'Hy the net of March SI, ITO, treason I
clashed among the chinos against the stute,
nd is defined thus:
" 'If any trson owing allegiance to tha
commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall levy
war nguinst the aurna. or shall adhere to the '
enemies thereof, giving them aid and com
fort within the stale or elsewhere, and sliull
be thereof convicted on conlesslon in open
court, or on tbe testimony of two witnesses
to the same overt act of the treason whereof
he shall stand Indicted, such ltf-rson ahull,
on conviction, lie ad judge-1 guilty of treason
nguinst the common wealth of Pennsylvania,
and be sentenced lo pay a fine not exceed
ing (2,'ssj and undergi imprisonment by
separate and sodtary coiiliiieiiient ut labor
not exceeding tvreho years.'
"The act is definite. The traitor Is on
who owes ullegianco to ti.e state nod is guil
ty of a breach of it. The centr.il tho iglit in
treason is a h'eneh of faith, of that tie of
duly which the traitor owes to the state her
self; and Is not lo be cuiifoiinued with
mere violation of the law. Trca-on include
a violation of law, but it embraces moro, a
violation of faith. Its essence is treachery,
perjury, a violation of confidence.
"Treason, said ('. J. Marsha I, is a breach k
of allegiance, nnd can be committed by hint
only who owes allegiance, either perpetuul
or temporary. In the Patir. it is traders, to
give up. surrender, or betray.
"Allegiain e means the ligament, t'e, or
obligation atuhject or citizen owes to hia
king, state or nation. Hence, treason Is th '
breach of this liirament, or indication. With
this thought it is easy to distinguish treason '
from riot. It lies in the purpose or intent
or the traitor to overturn the government, or
subvert tt.e law. or destroy an institution
of the suite. Riot is a breach O' vio ation
of law, but without a purpoae against th
"The whiskey insurrection of 1791 Is an
illustration -if treason. Tbe United Plate
noiuied a law to levy an excise on spirits.
Tbe purose of the Insurrectionists was to
resist the law itself, and compel its abandon,
roent or repeal, and tor this purpisse ihey
took lip arms. It illustrates another thomrbl
that of class, vis: the law of a cias thoa
uguged in distilling end selling spirits.
"On the other hand the great railroad riot
of 1ST? illu-trutes a mere breach of law. It
purpose wus privute, to remedy th alleged
wrongs ot the employes, and waa directed
against the railroad company, and not tba
btute. It was a terrible violation of law, In.
eluding a resort to arms and munier. but
the rioters had no purpose uguiuat th Stat .
in violation ol their allegiance.
"Tbe difference between treason and riot
lie in th purpose, public in on, private in
