After Years of Painful Illness He Succumbs Anil Peacefully Passes Away, Surrounded In 'lii r.t'iilly Funeral Service to lte I! ' i ':iy In the Church of Which ?i ... iitiM.iie a Member Kio- li.ii. ir .1 .-dtciuh of His Lifs Washington, April 13. It was a sad ami toui'liing scene at the Ruiklall resi dence ou Capitol Hill when Congress man Samuel J. Randall expired Sunday morning, just as tho bells of a neighbor ing church were tolling 5 o'clock. Around the bedside were gathered the family, the 'physician and Postmaster General Wananiaker, who had all kept a constant watch over the dying man during the night. A few moments before his death he had opened his eyes, and, looking ten derly at his wife, who knelt over him, said" in a low tone, "Mother!" A word instinct with all the fondest recollec tions of their long and happy married life, and by which he always called his wife wheii none but the family were near. He looked into her eyes as if he were able to say something more, but he seemed to have no strength left, and in a few moments he had passed away. Death had come with the coming of the dawn. Tho watchers saw that all was over, and the brave wife and daughter, who had nursed and cared for him during his long illness, could restrain their feelings no longer, but gave way to their grief, while the physician and Mr. Wana niakor endeavored to console them as best they might, though their own grief hardly permitted them to speak. Mr. Randall's illness dates hack about live years, when Dr. Thomas F. Mallan, who has attended him throughout his later illness, was called in to treat him for the gout. July 0, al most two years ago. Mr. Randall was suddenly seized with a vio- j hemorrhage dur ing the night, cine to hastily eating adish of icecream and berries dur- bamubi, j. randall. ingtlicday. This hemorrhage was so severe as to com pletely prostrate him and his life was in imminent danger. Dr. Mallan says that for some time previous to this Mr. Ran dall had been troubled with wiiat he supposed were hemerrhoids. The diarrheal attack caused the dis ease to assume an active form and it was found that he was suffering from nn extensive and malignent ahcess. This caused serious hemorrhages which greatly depleted his system and left him weak "and emaciated, lie put himself permanently under the physicians' care, and Dr. Mallan has attended him con stantly while he was in the city. Dr. N. .S. Lincoln, a physician of great repute in this city, was called into con sultation occasionally. Mr. Randall ral lied and grew stronger, and was getting on fairly well until la,st February, when he had a severe rigor, brought on, prob alily by the weather. This rigor was ac companied by severe abdominal pains, and there were symptoms of peritonitis. From this time, exhaustion began to set in, and the sick man's course was down ward .Septicaemia was also present, and n chill and severe diarrhea, about two weeks ago, brought the case to a critical stage. I' p to a short time ago Mr. Randall had conlidenee in his ability to pull through his sickness, and told a con gressional visitor that he thought he was mending anil that ho would lie awe to resuino his congressional duties, lie joined the Presbyterian church about two mouths ago. Mr. Wananiaker BKke to him on this subject, ami Mr. Randall replying that he had I icon think ing off this matter for some lime, and would like to become a member of the church. Arrangements wore elfected by which he entered the Metropolitan Presbyterian church on Capitol Hill. The Funeral. At H) o'clock Suudav night Mr. Wnna maker said that the funeral had been fixed for Thursday morning. " The ar rangements will be in charge of a con gressional committee. Mrs. I'andall pre fers that the services shall be held in the church of which Mr, Randall was a member, and not in the house of repre sentatives. This church is the Metro politan Presbyterian church. Dr. Chester pastor, at the" corner of Fourth and B streets, S, F.. NtJne or 10 o'clock will be the hour fixed for the services. After the cere monies the ' YuifcYal party will take a special train over the Pennsylvania rail road to Philadelphia, where the inter ment will take place in the Randall fam ily vault in Liurci Hill cemetery. Brief services will be held there. The train is not exjiectod to go into the city, but will stop at the Ridge Avenue church. lie I xpected to Kft'oter. A friend of Mr. Randall's said Sunday evening when be joined the church two months ago Mr. Randall fully expected to recover. Had ho lived, from w hat he had said, he would unquestionably have taken a decided stand in church mat ters. Mis eon version was the result of his hnvmi; leisure time, and had leen as thoroughly studied by him as an appro priation bill. There was no ahum nltout this, as there was no sham about Sam uel Randall in any thing. He lecame thoroughly convinced of bis need of re ligiou, ami after that, his mind lieing at rest, be became happier than he had been at any other time. All the family noticed it. Hi.iur.lldil.nl. Samuel .1. liandall was one of the many di-dingui'.hcd sons of Pennsyl vania, lie was lrii in Philadelphia Oct. 1'. !''. the son of an eminent law yer of that city. His mother was a daughter of James Worrell, a Demo cratic leader in the days of Jefferson, so that the ex-s aker may !o said to have been traditionally, as well as by convic tion, a iH'ino rat. His first position in public life w as as a member of the ciiy council of I hilailelphia, wherein be showed marked ahditr. and was soon trar.sfeni-d to the senate of his native Into. The U'ginningof the civil w ar prompt ed Randall to military service in the lighthouse of Philadelphia. He received promotion until he became "cornet." a rank e jual to that of captain. In 1863 he was among the troops alvanced to Harrisbuiy; as the result Of Gen. Lee's invasion. During the battle of Gettys burg his rank was that of provost mar shal of Columbia. He entered the Thirty-eighth congress in December, 18(18, and kept his seat iu the house of representatives ever since. He was a ready, concise speaker, without rhetor ical affectations. He was elected speaker in 1876, and held the position until the election of Keifer. lie was always an outspoken advocate of "a judiciously adjusted pro tective tariff." The free trade pajwrs were unanimous in their antagonism to his candidacy for speaker of the Forty eighth congress, and Carlisle was chosen to the position. In the early part of 1885 Randall made a tour of "the south, and was received with much enthu siasm. The residence of the ex-speaker is a modest little three-story brick house in Washington, with marble trimmings, and is situated on C street, one of the quietest thoroughfares of a quiet neigh borhood. It is one of a row of perhaps a dozen similar tenements, and acrss the street are a like number of precisely the same character. The place was bought by Mr. Kandall about fourteen years ago, when he was a simple member of congress, with no thought, perhaps, of the distinction that awaited him. He came to congress during the war, and for some years lived, during the ses sions, at various hotels of the city. But he tired of this mode of life and bought the modest little house in which he died, with his scaflt savings. He leaves his wife, who is a daughter of the late Gen. Ward, and a daughter, Annie, a charming and popular young lady. STARCH FACTORY BURNED. Three F.mplnye Lose Their Lives at Ite Mnliies-Xoss lOO.OOO. Des Moines, Iowa, April 15.

Veins of the Precious Metals Cropping Out from the mountain Hides. Denver, Col., April 15 .Col. Stanton, commander of the recent expedition in the Grand canon of the Colorado river, Saturday made public some interesting precious mineral discoveries which his party made in that far-famed canon. Mr. Stanton has a fine selection of speci mens, consisting of all the well known irecious minerals, as well as coal, mar lo, etc. He says that 400 niik of the canon show a wealth of the precious mincril. The steep walls of the canon show quartz veins in places. Assays from specimens obtained on the trip down the river demonstrate that these veins are of remarkable richness. The action of the water has worn smooth the sides of the canon, and the vein mat ter is clearly discernible to the naked eve. Placer gold is found nearly the en tire length of the river. Every point panned produced color, and in places the liars were found to contain coarse gold in surprising quantities. In one place, south of Lee's Ferry, veins were found which had evidently been developed in a crude way by the Indians, perhaps by the now extinct race of the Aztecs. Mr. Stanton says the pincers could he easily worked, because there is no lack of water facilities. Col. Stanton is of the belief that he has relo cated tho bonanza discovered by Maj. Powell's expedition in 1800. Will P.-titiott Kn.p ror William. Tokos r, Out, April 15.

Predicament of the Permanent C.nnm It tee of the Geographical 8::'lety A Corre.ipniiileiit Has an luterv.vw M'.th 8t: iley nt Camtej In Which He Ao cunes Emln of Rad Faith. Pa 'tis. April 15. Stanley was once unlucky enough to wound Gaelic sus ceptibilities by a s;x?cch delivered in the French capital. Though yearn his pass ed since then, the otfense has not. been forgotten. Ask any ordinary i ixach man what sort of reception would be ac corded to the African explorer should he abridge his stay in Cannes so as to spend a day or two here before proceeding to Brussels, and the answer would proba bly be a simultaneous uplifting of the eyebrows and shoulders. In Paris circles outside the Anglo American colony, where the arrival of Stanley might be thought a matter of some moment, great and axious has been the discussion regarding the atti tude it would be proper to assume towards Emin Pasha's rescuer. In a Dilemma. The permanent committee of the Geo graphical society avows that it is in a di lemma. On the one hand there are Stanley's acknowledged merits, and on the other that unfortunate speech of his. "Up to the present," said Comte De Bizemont, president of the committee of the society, -to - the journalistic seeker after information, "we have not been notified of Stanley's future movements. Consequently we have not had to delil) erate officially upon how we shall re ceive him. We have each of us, how ever, formed personal opinions, and I have no objection to giving you mine. I do not think it necessary or opportune to make too much of Stanley in case of his coming here. This explorer has posi tively no claim upon our sympathies. In interviews printed heie he showed that his sole concern waa the lenelits that might accrue to England from his trav els, while of France he said not one single word. "Moreover, without wishing to detract in any way from the merit of his travels, I must say that Stanley has always kept an eye on No. 1. He is not averse to the large pecuniary profits which his busi ness capacity enables him to draw from his ionrneys to the dark continent. Un doubtedly he is a bold, intelligent ex plorer, biit at the same time they are to him a speculation, "Now," went on Comte De Bizemont, with the air of one whose thoughts and aspirations have been altogether cast off from this base earth and are soaring far into the empyrean, "we of the Geograph ical society make no account of personal interest. Our dominant preoccupation is the interest of science. Thus it was we gave no fete in honor of ('apt. Trievier, for after minutely examing the story of of his travels we became of the opinion that the French explorer, though giving evidence of extraordinary courage by crossing Africa almost alone, had un fortunately followed in the footsteps of previous explorers. His notes did not contain any fact not hitherto known to geographical science. "l'o return to Stanley, I will give you another reason for my lack of enthusi asm. When, after his first journey, the explorer came to Paris he considered it good taste to afreet it certain disdain for De Brazza. This friend of Tippoo Tib got from his French rival as good as he gave. Stanley has always profited pe cuniarily from his travels, while Do Brazza. it must be said in praise, was disinterested, and spent more than half his private fortune in behalf of science and bis adopted country." "Some people may think, ' continued De Bizemont, "that because Stanley has one of the five gold medals awarded by our society we are bound to do something in his honor. Nothing could be further from the truth. I can only say this much, were the American colony to get up a banquet in Stanley's honor I should absent my self from Paris so as not to be able to accept an invitation which might be sent." Comte de Bizemont will have no need to quit the capital. Stanley had the means of getting the Society of Geogra phy out of a dilemma. He hits done so. Wlien The Herald stated yesterday that the explorer had decided not to pay a visit to Paris, memliers of the society be gan to breathe agaiu. East African Tariff. London, April 15. The British and German East Africa companies have agreed upon a common revisicn of the tariffs in view of the increasing African trade. This indicates that there are no serious dissensions between them. Wiss mann will not touch Kavirondo. His plans are not connected with Stanley's overtures to Emin. Answering Chaixe. The Times' corresiondent at Cannes has had an interview with Henry M. Stanley. Stanley declared that the state ments Father Schinze made could only emanate from a depraved and degraded nature. Schinze and party were half naked and half starved until he pro vided for them and paid their tribute on arriving at the coast. In regard to the ivory, it was not heaped up at Wadelai, but widely scattered, and it would oc cupy at least a year of hard work to col lect it. detracting much from its value. Regarding Emin, Stanley says: "Emin was friendly enough until he fell into the hands of the Germans. As to ac quiring his province, one of the first things I showed him was his own offer to the British company. 'Confound it,' he exclaimed, 'they ought never to have published them.' The whole of Emin's action." Stanley continued, "is on a par with De Brazza's, who got King Leo pold's money and handed the results of his laliors with it to France." Hurprisei at Fncland. Stanley is surprised at England's al lowing the Wissmann enterprise to pro ceed without a protest. I lo says that the exploits of Dr. Peters ought to be carefully watched. Stanley continues immersed in revising his book. Electric Nubniarine lorpeuo iioat. j Paris, April 15.
