Utica, N. Y—Vice President James
Schoolcraft Sherman died at his home
here, Oct. 30. Members of his family
wore at the bedside. Mr. Shermen
had been sinking rapidly all day, but
at 7 o’clock his pulse was better and
it was thought he would live through
the night. Soon after there was a
change for the worse and he began to
sink rapidly. He lay In a comatose
condition for several house before the
end came.
Born and Died In Same Ward.
James Schoolcraft Sherman, vice
president of the United States, was
born October 25, 1885, in the same
ward of Utica In which ho died.
When he was two years old his
father moved, with his family, to a
farm two miles south of the village af
New Hartford, and here they lived un
til 18G8. In the fall of 18G8 Sher
man’s parents purchased a house in
the village of New Hartford, where
they continued to live until the death
of Sherman’s mother, in 1896, his fath
er having died the year previous.
Sherman lived with his parents un
til, 1881, when he was married at East
Orange, N. J., to Carrie Babcock, tak
ing up his residence in the Seventh
ward of the city of Utica.
\ While he lived on his father’s farm
e attended the district school half
a mile from home, and when old
enough to do so, he assisted in such
wtrk on the farm as a boy of his
years would be capable of doing. Aft
er removing to the village of New
Hartford ho attended the public school
of that town, and later attended the
'Utica academy.
Later he attended the Whitswtown
seminary, a preparatory school situ
ated In the village of Whltesboro, four
miles distant. From this school young
Sherman entered Hamilton college In
the fall of 1874, and was graduated In
1878. Ho gained a considerable rep
utation as a declalmer In both school
and college, carrying off first honors
In declamation at the end of his fresh
man year. He also enjoyed a reputa
tion as a debater and was one of six
chosen from his class at the conclu
sion of his senior year to contest for
Began Study of Law.
After leaving college Sherman began
at once the study of law In the office
of Beardsley, Cookinham & Burdick,
at Utica, N. Y. He was admitted to
practice two years later, and at once
formed a partnership with H. J. Cook
inham, his brother-in-law, and former
Mayor John G. Gibson. He contin
ued the practice of law in partner
ship with Cookinham, with various
changes In the personnel of the firm,
until January 1, 1907, when he with
drew as a member of the law firm.
Sherman’s first active work in poli
tics was the year succeeding his grad
uation from college, when he spoke a
few times in different parts of the
country in advocacy of the election
of Alonzo B. Cornell, Republican can
didate for governor, making his first
speech in ahe town of his residence.
Mayor of Utica in 1884.
During the last fifteen years Sher
man campaigned in various parts of
the state, having spoken in most of
the important cities of the state and
a great many minor places, as well as
in half a dozen or more other states.
During various campaigns he spoke in
substantially every town in Oneida
and Herkimer counties. He was chosen
mayor of Utica In 1884.
He was first named for Congress in
1880, the contest being quite a spirit
ed one, there being half a dozen can
didates, his chief competitor being
Henry J. Coggeshall, then state sena
tor from that district.
Sherman was renominated each suc
ceeding two years by acclamation un
til 1890, when there was a contest for
the nomination, his competitors being
Seth G. Heacock of Herkimer, now
state senator, and John L. Sayles of
Rome, Oneida county. Since that time
lie was nominated by acclamation each
succeeding two years until his elec
tion as vice president.
On Appraisers’ Board.
In 1S98 Sherman was appointed by
President McKinley a member of the
board ot general appraisers of the city
of New York and the nomination was
confirmed by the Senate. It was his
desire at the time to accept the ap
pointment, but political and business
friends at home, including the Cham
ber of Commerce and the Republican
county committee, passed resolutions
and appointed a committee to wait up
on him and urge him not to retire as
a member of Congress, and In con
formity with the desires of his constit
uents he declined the appointment.
Sherman, early in his congressional
career, became a prominent member
of the House, and during his last few
terms in Congress was numbered
among the leaders. His parliamen
tary ability was early recognized and
perhaps no other member was so fre
quently called to the chair to preside
over the committee of the whole. He
was one of the closest friends of
Speaker Reed, as he was of Speaker
Henderson and Speaker Cannon.
Chairman of Committee.
Sherman v5»» a candidate for the
speakership when Thomas B. Reed re
tired. For twelve years he was chair
man of the committee on Indian af
fairs, and his work as the head of that
committee received unstinted praise
from all concerned in the work of the
committee, without regard to the party.
He was also a member of the commlt-
Lee on rules and of Interstate and for
eign commerce.
Sherman was a regular attendant
at the Dutch Reformed church in
Utica since his marriage. In 1881

We were walking down the street

"Well, son," we said in the Idiotic

“Four,” lisped the Infant. (He didn’t
really lisp It, because you can't lisp
when you say four; but that’s the wa}*
children are supposed to do.)
"Isn’t that fine!" (It would have
been Just bb fine if he'd been three,
though, or five. More Idiocy.) "And

"Mamma’s ll'l boy.”
"Aren’t you papa’s little boy, too?"

“The decree gimme to mamma."
