SENATOR PLUMB, OF KANSAS, SUD-
DENLY EXPIRES.
overwork the Main Cause of lt—A
Dramatic Scene in Ills Bed
ChamberoAu'angemeuts
for the Fulieral.
WASHINGTON, D. 0., Dec. 21.—-Senator
Plum-b of Kansas was stricken with apo
plexy yesterday morning, and after linger
ing some hours in an unconscious condi~
tion he died at 11:30 o’clock. At 7 o’clock
in the morning he jumped from his bed.
suddenly exclaimed, “Oh, my God! my
head, my head!” and fell unconscious to
the floor in his room. He had been sub
ject to throbbing headaches, kidney:
troubles, weak, eyes, failing memory, etc., i
and called in Dr. Wales, who made a diag- ‘
nosis of his case, telling him that apoplexy
was indicated. A few days ago Plumb Went
to Philadelphia with Senator Quay to 06n
sult with Dr. Pepper. He returned Satur
day evening complaining of a violent
headache, but went to a dinner given by
ex-Senator Mahone to afew friends. He
returned home about 1 o’clock Sunday
morning, and about 20’clock called Mr.
Jennings, his landlord. who lived above,
and requested‘hiln to come down and sit
With him, as he was ill. Mr. Jenninge saw
that the_ senator’s condition was serious
and summoned Dr. Wales. The lat
ter alleviated the pain and re
mained with the senator until
6:30 o’clock, when he went away. leaving
Plumb sleeping soundly. Fifteen minutes
later Senator Plumb awoke, bounded out
of bed to the slop jar and began to vomit.
When the vomiting ceased he raised his
hands to his head and exclaimed: “Oh,
my God, my head, my head,” his last
words. Mr. Jennings stroked his head to
relieve the pain, and a few minutes later
he lapsed into a slumber, and soon after
into unconsciousness. About lOo’clock Dr.
Wales. returned, and saw at once that the
senator had been stricken with apoplexy.
He remained unconscious until the end
came, at 11:30. Dr. Wales said the imme
diate cause of death was apoplexy, brought
on by fatty degeneration of the brain,
from overwork. “It was a clear case of
overwork,” said the doctor. “If he had
given up some time ago it would have been
different, but no man could stand what he
was doing in his condition."
Senator Plumb died from over work. He
was 54 years of age, a native of Ohio, a
printer in his early days, then an editor, a
lawyer and a banker. He went to Kansas
in 1856. was a member of the Leav—
enworth constitutional convention of
1859, was in the legislature in 1862.

[from second lieutenant to colonel, was
again a member. of the _Kansas, ~le,gislature
after the war and in 1876 was elected U. S.
senator to succeed James M. Harvey. The
news of his death was a great shock to his
friends in Knansas, where he was so popu
lar. Mrs. Plumb, is at her home in
in Emporia, where she has been an invalid
for many years. She was able for the first
time in several months to attend church
yesterday, and it was there thavthe news
of her husband’s illness was communicated
to her. She was prostrated, and was taken
home in a carriage. She scarcely arrived
there when a second dispatch announced
Plumb’s death. Mrs, Plumb is now com
pletely prostrated.
Senator Plumb leave a wife, two daugh
ters and three sons. He was a man of
wealth, and in addition to his senatorial
duties was actively concerned in railroad
and industrial enterprises, and widely
known in financial circles as an indefatig
able promoter. -

house to the hearse by eight capitol police

, obsequies, the desk and chair of the de

On motion 0 f Manderson the reading of}
the journal was distijensed with, and Sena- \
tor. Peiflel‘ rose an made the followin
announcement of Plumb’s death, ang

“Mr. President, I esteem miyself peculiarly
unfortunate in that before was a member
of this body long enough to become fa
miliar with even the dimensions of the
chamber in which we sit, I am called
on to announce ' the death
of my distinguished colleague

col eague elotlplently and concluded by of

deep regret to his associates in the senate.

of the clerk’s desk and the western side of
the chamber was set afart for the occu
pancy of members oft me house of repre
sentatives. The public galleries had in the
meantime become crow ep to their utmost
capacity and the halls and corridors lead
ing to them were packed with people seek- ‘
ing to gain admissxon. ‘

PoarLAsprDec. 21f—The Bowers Dredg—
ing Company’s dredge is working first rate, ,
and‘ is getting along well with the job of l
filling the long ‘trestle of the Northern
Paci c below town. This will be completed
about New Year’s, and then the ' redge
will be moved up to below the Madison
street bridge and begin the work of filling
up the bottom along the front of East
Portland. The owners of a large number
of blocks have already contracted for fill
ing them, and present indications are that
before the work is through about the whole
bottom will be filled. Then the East Side
will have a chance to come to the front in
every sense. The water along the East
Side will be deep and wharves and ware
houses can be built there, and the appear
ance of that part of the city greatly iin
groved. Blocks along the riveron the East
Ide will begin to approach in value the
blocks on the West Side when they’ are
filled up to the proper level. .

Emperor of the Stage. _
New York Recorder: No actor, not even
Edwin Forrest or Joseph Jefferson, ever
trod the stage who is so generally beloved
and venerated by his pyrofessional associates
as is Edwin Booth. nlike the generality
of stellar lights, he never put on frills or
airs. and if an actor made a mistake in_ the
business of the play or shook in his lines
it is not his custom to fly at him like an
enraged lion the instant he caught him be
hind the scenes. Carl Ahrendt, now _With
Thomas W. Keene tells a good story illus
trative of Booth’s kindness in this respect.
On one occaiion he was playing Joseph to
his Richelieu, and in the first act forggt a
one which called out a speech from ich
elicu which invariably evokes a hearty
round of applause. Turning his back to
the audience, Booth threw him that needed
one in an undertone. Then Ahrendt gave
it and Richelieu made his needed point.
When they got behind the scenes Ahrendt
apologized, saying: “Mr. Booth, I’m very
sorrv. I can’t for the life of me explain
how I forgot that one." “I can,” was the
tragedian s rejoinder. “The fault was
mainly mine. Don’t you remember I
skip ed a couple of speeches and carried
yang ,as it were? Don’t worry about it.
t’s all right now. Those who saw Booth
at Billy Florence’s funeral breathed many
a secret prayer that he might long be
spared, “the Emperor of the Stage,” as Fe
t ier Branii litly termed him.
Painting Her lied. W
New York Recorder: There was a fire the
other night in Harlem, which at one time
seemed likely to envelope the whole block.
About 11 o’clock a gentleman and his, little
‘ son came out of the theater and stood upon.
the sidewalk to watch the rellection of the
flames in the sky. They boy gazed silently
for some moments at t is lurid expanse of
the heavens before an explanation of the
phenomenon occurred to him. Then,
turning to his father with an intelligent
expression upon his little face, he said:
J‘Say, popl I guess someone's painting the
town pretty red tonight, dont’t you ?”

. WONDERFUL WORK.
What is Gomg on at the Keeley
lnshtute.
Patients From Every Pan 0! the
State-Voluminous Correspon
dence Fighting the
. Deadly Enemy.
The Keeley class is well pleased with its
new quarters in the Horr building. They
are comfortable, central and pleasant, and
these features, combined‘ with the ever
obliging and assiduous attention of Man
ager Haller, renders attendance at the in
stitute rather a pleasure than otherwise. ,
ALL ARE HOPEFUL.
The members of the class are, as a rule,
men of more than ordinary intelligence
and education, and most of them have
had an extended and active business ex
l perience. They come from all parts of the
state and their discussion upon the merits
and characteristics of their several locali
ties, and upon all topics of generalinterest,
are both instructive and profitable. They
meet upon a common fground, with com.
mon hopes and sympathetic aims and pur
poses, and a mutually friendly associa
tion is at once establis ed. All hope con
fide'ntly for release from the curse that has
blighted and clouded their lives, and each
honors the other for the courage and man
hood that has led him to make a stand
against the common enemy.
WONDERFUL WORK. ‘
The correspondence of the institue is al—
ready quite oluminous, requiring the ser—
vice of an expert type writer, and it is in—
creasing at a very rapid rate. Many of the
letters received contain specimens of the
saddest literature imaginable. They come
from heartbroken wives, grieving” parents,
and sorrowing friends, and the burden of
the cry is, "save our loved ones.” . Some
times they come from the victim of habit
himself, confessing in an agony of self
abasement and misery his chained and
helpless condition, and seeking through
the institute to save hixilselijfrom the demon
that pursues him. One of these is now be
fore the writer. Its author a. wretched and
helpless slave of habit. often relating his
futile struggles against his terrible foe,
always resulting in disaster, defeat and de
creased power of resistance says: “From
what I have heard and seen concerning the
efiicacy; and success of your treatment, re
sults t 6 first ray of real hope that has ever
crossed my darkened way. I believe that
it will save me, and little can you or any
one else imagine what such a hope means
to one in my condition. I shall hasten to
yglurgnstitute as soon as I am financial] y
a e. ‘
In the last clause of this statement there
is a point that may well attract the atten
tion and careful consideration of all
friends of
ranrannncn AND nnroanuron.
The greater portion of eii'ort‘and expend
iture in the direction of temperance reform
is a failure, because it is not practical. It
aims to cure through the mind. but it gives
no help or support to the aiiected and of
ten shattered bodv, which is the real seat
of the disease. If the effort and means
now sovlavishly devoted to the interests of
the persuasion and the moral restraint
methods, was directed toward effecting a
real physical cure, of what is now admitted
to be a real physical disease, there can be
no question that the number of wretched
drunkards in the land would rapidly de
crease. The methods of moral suasion are
. not to be byLany means totally condemned,
butin the light of past experience and pres
ent opportunity, they may certainly and
with justice be questioned when the matter
of dealing with the coniirmed victim of
drink is being considered.
snLr CONTROL.
A member of the Keeley institute met a
friend upon the street the other day, and
the following conversation ensued:
“Do you not fecl'a sense of humiliation
in connection with your attendance here?”
said the friend. “I should think that such
a public confession of a man of self-con
trol would be repugnant to you.”
The Keely man looked at his friend for a
moment, and then quietly but very se
riously asked: -
“If you had been hurled into a roaring
torrent and were being swiftly and surely
swept into furious rapids where certain de
struction awaited you, would you be
ashamed to grasp a imb reached out to
you? I think not, and yet that was pre
cisely my situation when I came here.
And then think of another phase of the
case. My personal destruction would be
