HIS DEATH OCCURS AT FREMONT AFTER A SHORT ILLNESS. Neuralgia of tlie Heart the Immediate Cause —Events of an Active and Philan thropic Life The Electoral Count ol 1870—An Honoruble War Record. FREMONT, 0., Jan. 18.—Ex-President R. B. Hayes died at 11 o'clock last night, but the information of his death was not learned for some time later, as everything was kept exceedingly quiet in the vicinity of the Hayes mansion. An early report that the patient's condition was improving i and that lie was resting easy allayed most j suspicion, so that the sudden appearance of Webb Hayes with the announcement | that his father had just died proved a shock to all. From Mr. Hayes it is learned that the condition of his father took a sudden RUTHERFORD B. IIAYF.S. change early in the evening and rapid dis solution followed. The members of the family have all along been exceedingly re ticent regarding the condition of General Hayes. II in Last Illness. Ex-President Hayes was brought here last Saturday suffering from an attack of rheumatism of the heart, with which he had been stricken at Cleveland. It was the second attack of the kind he had received within two weeks, and although his condi tion was regarded as somewhat serious and excited the alarm of his family, the encouragement given them by Dr. Hilbest, the family physician, led them to believe that the patient would soon recover. For this reason all knowledge of the ex-presi dent's illness was kept from the public. The sickness had been watched during the day and evening with much interest by the friends of the general, and as is gener- I ally the case many conflicting rumors were afloat, but an interview with Rutherford P. Hayes appeared to reduce the facts to a statement that his condition was practi cally unchanged. The members of the family passed the day quietly remaining at the family residence quite closely. Webb has remained with his father almost con stantly, only leaving the house ashorttime during the day. Rutherford is associated with the Fremont Savings bank and spent part of the morning at his place of busi ness. In the afternoon he came down town, i stopping at the telegraph office presumably to answer some of the many telegrams that are constantly pouring in upon them. Dur ing the afternoon Miss Lucy Elliott Keeler, a relative of the Hayes family, spent sev eral hours with them. The Life of Ex-President Hayes. After his retirement from the White House March 4,1881, ex-President Ruther ford B. Hayes was heard of but seldom. Occasionally he attended a Grand Army re union, and he was a prominent figure at the Columbian celebration and banquet in New York city Oct. 12-14, 1892. He was al ways present at the annual meetings of the board of trustees of the Peabody fund, of which all ex-presidents are members. But beyond these modest functions Mr. llaye9 remained in absolute retirement at his home in Fremont, 0., up to the time of his death. Mr. Hayes' career furnishes one of the most interesting chapters in the polit ical history of the United States. He was born in Delaware, 0., Oct. 4, 1822, his father having died the preceding July. He was graduated with honor from Kenyon college, Ohio, in August, 1842, at tended Harvard law school for a little over a year, and was admitted to the bar in 1845. In November, 1848, his health being some what impaired, lie went to Texas for the winter, and after a period of unsettlement located in Cincinnati the next winter. Hi* MurriHße to Lury Webb. On Dec. 80, 1852, lie married Miss Lucy Ware Webb, daughter of Dr. James Webb, a physician of high social standing in Chil licothe. Of their eight children four sons and one daughter reached maturity. Mrs. Hayes was noted for her devotion to sick and wounded soldiers during the war, and to temperance and public charities in peace. Her refusal to have wine served in the White House during her sway there gave her a world wide fame, and for that action she received many testimonials of esteem both from Europe and America. Under the first call for troops by Presi dent Lincoln the literary club of which Mr. Hayes was a member organized a company, and he was elected captain, and on the 7th of June following the governor of Ohio commissioned him major of the Twenty third regiment Ohio infantry. HIS HOME AT FREMONT. lie was judge advocate for a short time, was commissioned lieutenant colonel Oct. 24, 1861, and greatly distinguished himself at the battle of South Mountain, Oct. 14, 1802, where he was severely wounded. Soon lifter he became colonel of the regiment, and as such particularly distinguished himself in many movements and battles. He led a desperate charge on Cloyd moun tain, and at the first battle of Winchester won the applause of the whole array. But it was at the second buttle of Winchester, Sept. 19,1804, that he won immortal honors. There he led an assault across a morass, And his horse having mired he charged on J foot, and though but forty or fifty men fol lowed so close as to keep up with him this squad captured a battery which had been | deemed perfectly secure. Again at Fish er's Hill and Cedar Creek lie performed prodigies of valor, liia commission as brigadier general soj>n arrived, and on March 13, 1865, he was made brevet briga dier general "for gallant and distinguished services." In the meantime he had been ! elected to congress from a Cincinnati dis trict. I It was on this occasion that he made his famous retort. A friend having written to him to come home in the fall of 1864 and canvass the district, he answered with a rather sharp reproof, ending with this sen tence, "An officer fit for duty who at this crisis would abandon his post to elec tioneer for a seat in congress ought to be scalped." He was re-elected in 1860. but his two terms in congress were uneventful. He voted with his party throughout, except on some minor resolutions on finance. In view of his subsequent prominence as a "prompt resumptiouist," it is rather singu lar that these votes indicated an opposition to strong measures leading toward resump tion. In 1867 he was nominated by the Repub licans for governor of Ohio and was elected. No election of that era excited more aston ishment. The state had long been over whelmingly Republican, the majorities ranging above 40,000 for some years, yet at the first election after the soldiers came home, with a phenomenally lurge vote, the highly honored general had less than 3,000 majority over Allen G. Thurman, and the legislature was carried by the Democrats. That body chose Judge Thurman for the L'nited States senate. i Governor Hayes was re-elected in 1809, this time by over 7,000 majority. He had now become the exponent of advanced "hard money" views, and on the platform of prompt resumption he made his third cam paign for governor in 1875, receiving about 5,500 majority after a campaign of almost unprecedented vigor on both sides. In the meantime he had run for congress in 1872 and been defeated by some 1,500 majority, and had in 1873 retired from public life and settled in Fremont, O. Soon after he came into possession of the large estate of his uncle, Silas Birchard, which further con (lrmed him in his resolution to lead a pri vate life, and he only yielded in 1875 to the most earnest solicitations of the Republic ans. As President of the United States. His repeated success in Ohio induced the Republican national convention in 1876 to nominate him for the presidency after a deadlock between the two great forces in the party led respectively by Senator KOB coe Conkling and Speaker James G. Blaine. When the election had taken place it seemed certain that of the 869 electoral votes 184 would be cast for Mr. Tilden, the Democratic candidate, being one less than a majority. There were thirteen electors in respect to whose election there were grave questions in dispute. In order to secure the election of Mr. Hayes all of these thirteen votes must be counted for him. As the Republicans had a majority in the senate ami the Democrats in the house, it was certain that the two brauches of con- MRS. LUCY WEBB HAYES. I gress would not agree in the counting of the disputed votes. In the emergency a proposition was made by the Democratic leaders to submit the entire question to an electoral commission composed of five senators, five representa tives and five judges of the supreme court. This commission, by a majority of one, decided that the disputed votes should all l>e counted for Mr. Hayes, giving hijn a majority of one vote, and he was duly elected. In financial affairs his administration was an unequalifled success. It was his good fortune to become president just at the time when panic and depression were giving way to "better times." Seven years of unexampled deficit in the crops of west ern Europe and equally unexampled good crops in the United States made the re sumption of specie payments possible. The exports of gr<iin in one year of his adminis tration exceeded the ten year average be fore the war, and one year's imports of gold were greater than all the previous gold im- I ports since the administration of James K. Polk. The exports of wheat alone for the ten years terminating with June, 1881 (only four months after President Hayes re tired), exceeded all preceding wheat ex ports since the country was settled. Provi dence had indeed come to the aid of the country, and President Hayes and his abld finance minister, John Sherman, had the nerve to seize the opportunity. Mrs. Hayes died in Fremont in 1889. On the day of her funeral thousands of per sons, many of them in the humbler walks of life, came from the surrounding country to pay the last tribute of respect to her who had been so universally beloved. From early morning until the hour set for Ihe obsequies an unending stream of visit firs poured in through the frontdoor of the homestead to take a farewell look at the face of the benevolent but decided woman who had passed away. The last public act of ex-President Hayes was his delivery of the opening address of ■ the national prison congress, of which he | was president, at Washington in Decern ber last. i Mr. Hayes was president of the National i Prison Reform association and of the Slater education fund for the negroes; was a member of the Peabody Education Fund for the South; was commander of the mili tary order of the Loyal League of the United States. The degree of LL. D. was conferred upon him by Kenyon college, Harvard university, Yale college and John* Hopkins university. A PAPAL DELEGATE. THE OFFICE MADE A PERMANENT ONE IN AMERICA. The Teaching* of the Henry George Theo ries Coluclde with Those Entertained by His Holiness —Critics of Satolli Severely Rebuked. WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.—Mgr. Satolli re ceived at the Catholic university the follow ing cable message from Dr. O'Connell, the American secretary of the propaganda, who accompanied Mgr. Satolli to this coun try and recently returned to Rome: ~ _ ROME, Jan. 14. To MOT*. Satolli: The apostolic delegation is permanently es tablished in the United States, and you are confirmed as the first delegate. O'CONNELL. The importance of this message, proceed ing as it does from the American secretary of the propaganda, will be readily appre ciated. Inquiries at the Catholic univer sity here, where Mgr. Satolli resides, fully confirm the authenticity of the dispatch. This decision the Vatican considers to be a sufficient answer to the opposition to Mgr. Satolli and his mission. Early in December the faculty of theol ogy of the Catholic University of America in Washington transmitted to the person of Leo XIII their thanks for the sending of an apostolic delegate to the United States and for the selection of the university as his place of residence. The following au tograph letter was received in reply: Leo P. P. XIII to liis most beloved son, Thomas Bouquillon, dean of the faculty of theology of the Catholic university at Washington: HELOVED SON— Health and apostolic benedic tion. The love and devotion which you and your colleagues in the Catholic university at Washington BO felicitously manifest in your Joint address, written at the approach of Christmas, were very pleasing to us. We re joice indeed to see that you welcome with pleas ure the proof of our paternal solicitude which we gave you in the mission of our venerable Brother Francis, titular archbishop of Ijepanto, and we sincerely trust that In the dischurge of your noble ministry you will endeavor with all solicitude that the students taught by you may be the defense and glory of the church and an ornament to their fatherland. In the meantime Invoking upon you and upon your students an abundant out pouring of divine wisdom and of every other heavenly gift, we impart to you, beloved son, and to your col leagues very lovingly in the Lord the apostolic benediction. Given at Rome, at St. Peter's, the 13th day of December, in the year 1892, in the fifteenth year of our pontificate. LEO P. P. XIII. Dr. McGlynn's Teachings Not Obnoxious. Archbishop Satolli authorizes the pub lication of a statement in regard to the pope's action in the case of l)r. McGlynu, of which the following is a summary: On the very day of the reconciliation of Dr. McGlynn with the church public no lice was given of it, with the statement that Mgr. Satolli bad absolved from cen sure and reconciled Dr. McGlynn by special power for the purpose requested from and granted by the holy father. This information so expressed should have sudiced to satisfy every one. Every sincere Catholic should at once have felt himself bouud in conscience to recognize that all had been done in the case that was expedient and in accord with the spirit of the Catholic church. Dr. McGlynn presented a brief state mentof hisopinionson moral and economic matters, and it was judged not contrary to the doctrine constantly taught by the church, and as recently confirmed by the holy father in the encyclical rerum no varum. It is deplorable that any one should have dared to speak of the pope's authority over the church in America as foreign, and is a sentiment and utterance enormously erro neous and scandalous. THE NEWS OF CONGRESS. Condensed Report of the Business in Sen ate and House. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14. —The senate yes terday, after an explanation by Mr. Sher man, passed a bill to extend to the north Pacific ocean the provisions of the statutes for the protection of fur seals and other fur bearing animals. The McGarrahan bill was under consideration for half an hour, and after a speech against it by Mr. Mills it went over till next Monday. The Republicans in the house filibustered all day against the consideration of the private war claims bill, with the result that nothing was accomplished. WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. —The week prom ises to be eventful in the senate. Save the passage of the quarantine bill the senate i has accomplished very little, and of the annual appropriation bills has been passed. The committee on order of busi ness has determined that something must be done to advance the public business. It was at the suggestion of Mr. Sherman, j chairman of that committee, that Mr. | Washburn gave notice that he would ask ! the senate to sit next Wednesday until the antioptiou bill is disposed of. That this can j be done without a bitter struggle is not ex- j pected. What will follow the antioptiou bill will be decided by the committee on order of business before Wednesday. At present the indications are that priority will lie between some of the interstate com merce bills (if Senator Cullom is able to re sume his duties), the Nicaragua canal bill and perhaps a resolution to repeal the silver purchase act. Mr. Peflfer, of Kansas, is down for a speech on the limitation of the presidential term, and Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, on the McGarrahan bill, both for today. Actress Fannie Kenible Dead. LONDON, Jan. 17.—Frances Anne Kern hie (Mrs. Pierce Butler), the well known actress, is dead, aged eighty-three. In 1832 she visited America, and with her father performed with great success at the principle theaters of the United States. An account of these wanderings is given in her "Journal of a Residence in America" in 1835. At this period she became the wife of Mr. Pierce Butler, a planter of South Carolina, from whom sheohtained adivorce in 1839. She resumed her maiden name and retired to Ijenox, Mass., where she re sided, with the exception of a year spent in Italy, for nearly twenty years. From 1869 to 1873 she was in Europe. She then re turned to America, but subsequently came back to London, where she resided until her death. She published many volumes of her own works. The Homestead Trial. PITTSBURG, Jan. 18.—At the trial of Hugh DempHey Captaiu A. E. Hunt, chem ist, testified that he found evidences of croton oil ami arsenic in the excrement of one of the dead Homesteaders.

LABOR CONGRESS AT ALBANY. Knights of Labor Wo uld Annul Railroad Charters. ALBANY, Jan. 13.—At the congress of the Knights of L, -or a resolution was adopted condemning the combination entered into by railroads handling coal. The legislature under the resolution is asked to annul the franchises of the New York Central and Hudson River, Delaware and Hudson, Le high Valley, West Shore, Lake Erie and Western; New York, Ontario and Western; I Delaware, Lackawanna and Western and the Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg railroads. Other resolutions adopted fa vored the liberal canal appropriations; asked the legislature to annul the charters j of the Bell Telephone company and West j ern Union Telegraph company because of I exorbitant charges, and recommended that i Immigrants be restricted by a primary I school educational test in the native lan guage. Report on the Coal Combine. J WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—Messrs. Coombs j and Paterson have practically completed their report to the special committee on the investigation into the Reading anthracite coal combination. The report will show that the aim of the combination is to drive out independent coal operators and obtain* a complete control of the anthracite coal industry, and it is sought to do this by fix ing a high freight rate on coal, so as to make it profitable for individuals to turn in their product at the mines to the com bination. The report will recommend the passage of the bill heretofore agreed upon by the commerce committee, which gives the interstate commerce commission power to keep down freight rates. It was con templated to recommend legislation for the divorce of the transportation and coal producing industries, but, the two gentle men found it impracticable by constitu tional means to deal effectively with this matter, though of opinion that it is really the most efficacious remedy possible. The Homestead Inquiry. PITTSBURG, Jan. 14.—The court room was too small to hold the crowd on the second day of the trial of Hugh Denipsey for complicity in the Homestead poison ings. The day was taken up by the exam ination of men who had been taken ill while working at Homestead during the strike and physicians who attended them. The physicians all expressed the belief that the men had been poisoned. Among the ! witnesses were George W. Amy, Louis , Craig and H. P. Thompson. At the after noon session Stephen V. Lovelace, William H. Johnston, Benjamin Weaver, Wilbert Heard, Charles H. Smith, Louis G. Wolfe, Jr., W. E. Bullock and William E. Griffith testified to having been seized with sudden and severe illness after eating in the Home stead mill. The Cleveland Presbytery Favors Peace. CLEVELAND, Jan. 17—The Cleveland Presbyterian union adopted a manifesto deprecating any effort to impose new tests of orthodoxy or to restrict the liberty hitherto enjoyed by men who have sincerely subscribed to the confession of faith. The union also expressed the belief that the in terests of the church at large would be con served by a cessation of ecclesiastical trials for heresy of men who sincerely profess their faith in Holy Scripture as the unerr ing rule of faith and practice and their en ; tire loyalty to the gospel of Jesus Christ as the son of God. This manifesto lias refer ence to the proposed appeal of the prosecu tion in the Briggs case. ; Prescribed Morphine for a Broken Leg. I BOSTON, Jan. 14.—Court inquiry as to i the cause of his death proves the fact that George L. Harlow was sent to the hospital in Boston with a broken leg. He was at tended by Dr. Walker, who then sent hirn j home in a herdic, a distance of five miles, : giving him a prescription of morphine to I be taken "a teaspoonful every hour."

CHICAGO, Jan. 12.—Director of Works ; Burnham has made another estimate of the j amount of money necessary to finish the j World's fair buildings and put Jackson park in proper shape for opening the gates of the exposition on May 1.
