Ti.nnysox is dead. The brightest
light in the literary world was snuffed
out in the early morning hours of yes
terday. The intellect greatest and
grandest in its peculiar field of endeavor
of any which have adorned modern
limes, lias become only a memory. The
poet laureate of old England has joined
the silent gathering of his predecessors
In that honorable office, and his name
shines luminously in the list of those
whose flesh is but dust, but whose
works live forever.
There can be no doubt as to the posi
tion history will accord Tk.vxysox. He
will hold place in the front rank of En
glish-speaking poets. Not in the front
rank of the world's poets— for there
Dante, Goetiik and Shakespeare
stand alone— but in the foremost divis
ion of the bards whose songs have been
buiie in the Saxon tongue.
To paraphrase his own ode to the
dead hero of Waterloo, let them bury
the great poet to the sound of the
mourning of a mighty nation. More
than one or two or three of the nations
of Christendom join with England in
this mourning. Wherever there is a
literature Tennyson's works are known
and Texxyson's memory is today paid
sad tributes of honor. In Westminster
Abbey, crowded as it is with the mould
ering bones of prince and potentate, the
storied great of England's matchless
■history, a place will be found for Tex
>-y.sox. There let his growth crumble
and "be resolved to earth again;" his

So much tor Tommy Watson. The

down. The constituency which in a fit

Insanity, They have fittingly rebuked
Tommy's presumption in building sec

The career of this fellow Watson ex
emplifies one of the unfortunate phases
of popular government. Being acci
dentally elevated to the dignity of. a
national legislator he was constrained
to make a conspicuous exhibition of his
uuntuess for the role. In t.ie abridged
lexicon of such as he there is no such
Avoid as dignity. He forced himself
offensively upon public notice by his
utter lack of discretion in the house,
and he obtained for himself and his
sensational antics a wide notoriety.
Naturally such notoriety could be only
ephemeral. Mr. Watson has had his
little, brief day, and now makes his
exit. The political fool killer is waiting
to claim his own. So much for Tommy.
m "Coffeyville" is not an impressive or
euphonic name. There is nothing stir
ring or warlike in it. It has an unro
inantic, culinary sound that serves al
most as an anti-climax to the tale of
sanguinary combat with which it must
now be associated. If a liquid appella
tion is indispensable to this Kansas com
munity the Gi.oiJE would suggest
"iiloodville" as decidedly more appro
priate than "Coffeyville."
The battle or Coffeyville, fought last
Wednesday between the opposing forces
of law and brigandage, was the blood
iest ever fought on American soil in
proportion to the number engaged. Of
the six free-booters, four were shot
dead in their tracks and a fifth mor
tally wounded; but they left an even
balance on the books of the Coffevville
undertaker by dropping live members
of the marshal's posse, marshal him
self included. The "Dai/ion gang" was
■wiped out at the cost of a life for a life.
It was a big price, but it was paid un
flinchingly by the hardy citizens of Cof
feyville. The coroner rendered an om
nibus verdict, the substance whereof
•was a grim admission that the gang had
bucked the wrong tiger when they
tackled Coffeyville fanO so the curtain
is rung down on a scene calculated to
impart the greenish hue of envy to the
ghost of Jesse Jajiks.
All decent men and women believe
that it is a good thing to have a house
cleaning every now and then. To be
sure, it causes some trouble. If oue
consulted his comfort alone it misrht
seem better to leave the furniture and
carpets year after year just as they are.
Changes of any kind are upsetting, and
there is a great deal of gratification in
living amid surroundings to which one
has become attached t>y long associa
tions. But housecleaniiii: pays, never
theless. Rents and holes which might
otherwise have passed unnoticed until
they were beyond repair are detected
by it in thru. The dingy spots are
brightened and stains washed out..
There is really no pleasure like the
pleasure of cleanliness, and ali decent
men and women, however lazy they
may be, believe in it.
All sensible employers believe also in
overhauling things occasionally in shop
or office. Of course it would be much
more convenient to let business run
along without very close inspection. But
bookkeepers and cashiers are human,
and lie matter how trustworthy they
may be to start with, if they .are quite
sure that no investigation is likely to be
made, they may yield after a while to
the opportunities for dishonesty their
positions afford. So workingmeu will
grow careless if the boss never looks
over the jobs, and the clerk who thinks
there is no chance of his bein? dis
charged, no matter what he does, will
soon begin to get down late in the
morning, be neglectful of his duties,
and, perhaps, insolent to customers. It
would be very well if one could just
open an establishment, buy his stock,
engage his employes, and then go fish
ing with complete confidence that his
affairs would take care of themselves.
But this cannot b.i done. Bankruptcy
would quickly overtake the merchant
or mechanic who tried to follow such a
course. It is necessary to be on ha^fd
at all hours to check up accounts, to
watch employes, to reward the faithful,
to cut off the drones. All sensible em
ployers understand that profits can be
made only by constant vigilance.
The state government of Minnesota is
like an old house which has never been
cleansed, and like a business concern
whose affairs have never been over
hauled. Ever since the state has ex
isted the Republican party has con
trolled its every department. All the
executive offices have always been
filled by Republicans, term after term,
and a majority in each successive legis
lature has been of this political faith.
Even if no evidences of rottenness and
abuse showed themselves on the sur
face, would it be safe to allow this con
dition to continue indefinitely without
some inquiry as to whether all is well '.'
Not a bit more so than it would be to let
season after season go by without
housecleaning, or for the merchant to
never balance his ledger. Even if we
should admit that Republican politicians
are above the level of ordinary human
ity m character, the temptations to
which they have been exposed are so
great that an investigation into what
they have been doing would seem to be
the part of wisdom.
But there are more urgent reasons for
'an investigation than these general
principles suggest. The Republican
party has been so long in power in Min
nesota that it has come to feel it will
never be dispossessed. This has made
it careless of its obligations to the peo
ple, selfish and corrupt. It has ceased
to exist after the st vie of the American
political organizations, and has become
divided into two sections. One section
at every election does the voting, and
the other section holds the offices. The
section which holds the offices is a small
ring which uses its position at the head '
for the. personal advantage of its mem
bers. A half-dozen leaders get together
in St. every two years and decide
who shall be governor, who secretary
of state, who attorney general, who !
United States senator. Then they call a
convention and put through their slate
to ba balloted for at the polls, In this
way no one ever secures an office who
is not friendly or closely related to his ;
predecessor, and offices have developed
into a species of personal property, the
title to which is vested in a close corpo
ration of bosses.

We might as well live under an abso
lute monarchy where the rule is handed
down from father to son as live in Re
. publican Minnesota. And all the sins
which spring into ■ noxious vitality un
der a monarchy are rampant at the cap
itol. The opportunities opened by pub
lic administration have for years been
divided by carefully adjusted deals
among a few men. Laws have been
enacted not to benefit the masses, but
to enrich those in authority. The work
of the lobbyist has been made very
simple, because when he has influenced
a half-score of bosses he has done all
that is necessary to accomplish his
purpose. The opinions of the people
are defied, and instead of their inter
ests being consulted, they are forced to
pay tribute, which goes into their kings'
pockets. Everybody who knows the
inside workings of our local political
machine, knows that all this is true.
The climax has been reached in trie
operations of the wheat ring which af
fords a good example of how things are
operated. The legislatures have been
prevented from passing proper laws for
the protection of the farmers, and the
executive officers have failed to enforce
the laws which do exist. By thess de
vices the agricultural classes have for
many years been systematically robbed
by the elevator companies and the mill
ers. The profits of these industries
have thus been made enormous, and
these properties sold out because of
those enormous profits at figures almost
beyond belief to a syndicate of English
capitalists. Had the authorities been
on the farmers' side and saved them
from robbery, this deal could' never
have been consummated. As things
have been manipulated, however, gi
gantic fortunes have been accumulated
by the conspirators through the direct
help of the powers that be, and the
boodle has been divided among ail those
who have assisted in the wicked
When an honest man is urged to exert
his influence to rebuke such crimes as
these he is not urged to desert his
parly. The crowd which run things at
the capitol are not Republicans except
in name. They are out for no princi
ples. They are simply laboring to swell
their own bank accounts. A citizen
does not prove false to his political
faith when he votes against them. He
is helping his party rather than hurting
it. lie is co-operating in its purification,
and if it is purified it will be a thousand
times better and stronger, than it has
ever been before. Dishonesty in politics
is an assault on our national institu
tions, and whoever loves his country
should do what he can to put a stop
to it.
It is time for housecleaning and over
hauling iv the affairs of our state gov
ernment. And housecleaning and over
hauling are impossible without a change
I of party control. Let us have Licui -
oeralic officials and a Democratic legis
lature, that things may be looked into a
little and the whole truth reached.
Should it turn out that matters are not
as bad as feared, the Republicans can
be restored to power if their friends so
desire. But two years with I) v.nikl W.
Lawi.ek in the governors chair would
be two healtli-^iving years for Minne
sota, no matter what followed.

which went in search of the steam barge.
Nashua, which has been adrift on Lake
Huron since Monday night, arrived at
Sand Beach this noon, and reports hav

delegates on the regularly indorsed
ticket received: from 107 to 203 ot the
entire vote cast, which was 210. In the
First district there were 90 votes polled.
The club ticket received 77, the Harris

Messrs. Harris and Chapel have a
number of friends on the elected dele
gation, and there is some talk on the
part of the Harris men to disregard the
instructions and votu for their own can
didate. The sentiment of the Repub
licans who attended the primaries
seemed to be overwhelmingly in favor
of Mr. Freaney, and if any bolt is at
tempted it will . have . the effect of
strengthening Mr. Freaney's chances
instead of weakening them.
There was no opposition to the Ganger

Ninth Ward. . ; :
'-■? There was only one ticket In the field
for delegates to the county convention
from the Ninth ward, but there were
three sets of delegates running for the
legislative convention. The rival can
didates were Karl Simmon, J. H. Daly
and Harvey E. Hall. The fight was
rather bitter at times, and several fisti
cuff scriniages were narrowly averted.
Some of the partisans hail libated gen
erously, and were in a hilarious if not
outright quarrelsome state before the
count was completed. This was espe
cially the case at the corner of Jackson
and Sycamore streets, where the feeling
ran high.- One inebriated supporter of
one of the aspirants was charged with
peddling scab tickets. He took his dose
meekly, and after his accuser had left
the polls, he began boasting of how he
had -driven the other fellow away from
the polls." All this created a deal or
amusement. In some instances the po
lice found it necessary to interfere to
preserve the peace.
The count showed Simmon, the ex-
Seventh street druggist, far in the lead,
namely: Simmon, 202; Daly, 103, and
Hall, 07. The delegates are:

A Bystander Tells How the Third
Ward Showed Up.
The following was sent in last night
by an indignant Third ward voter:
Dr. Murphy was. snowed under by
dirt— repeaters and fraud in every
shape possible, and every kind of fraud:
possible was practiced. For; a while
Lowenstein, the judge who took the
ballots, opened them to see whether
they were for Murphy or for Orr. lie !
was caught at it, and told that if he did !
it again he would be "jerked out
through the window." Several men
stood there and passed in votes until
they had voted us often as they wanted
to, each time giving "a different name,
and Lowens;eiu put those ballots in
the box. A number of soldiers in uni
form from Fort Snelling voted for Orr,
and no questions were asked. It made
no difference in what ward or where a
man lived, so he voted for Orr. Dr.
Murphy's vote was clean, and came
from clean and respectable citizens of
the Third ward only. But wagon loads
of men voted early, went away and
came back in an hour and voted again.
Men who said they, did not live
in the ward were induced to go up to the
window, and the heeler would give
Lowenstein names and street numbers.
The votes were taken, and the men did
not have to tell a lie. Men were brought
to the polls who looked as though they
had not done a day's work or seen a bed
for six months, giving such names as
Brown and Jones, and neither their first
names nor their residences were called
for: but their ballots were eagerly taken
by Mr. Lowenstein. Mr. Wade was m the
"woodpile" and never peeped. He was
the other judge and supposed to be for
the doctor. There is but one course, for
Dr. Murphy to pursue in self-respeat— .
run independent, and, at any rate.teach
Orr a lesson and have a little venge
ance, for if the doctor could not be
elected as an independent the Democrat
would. 1 don't care how they do it. Orr
cannot be elected, and, echo repeats,
$100 Orr cannot be elected.

Thus early in the campaign the Republican
ministers have opened their mud batteries.
Hon. It. A. Walsh seams to be a special tor
get, and they are visiting contumely and
maliciously false assaults upon his record in
the last session of the legislature. Mr.
Walsh served the district in which he is run
ning for re-election, and every member of
Ramsey's delegation In the last house re
members that theie was not a harder work
ing member in the legislature. When his
record is attacked it might be well for any
voter In the district, tefoie passing judg
ment, to road the record. It is printed in the
house journal. A campaign of personal >
nbuse should enlist sympathy, and probably
win. :
Of the three . candidates in the Brewery
ward, the second strongest before the polls
walked off with the nomination prize. Bar
ney Zimmennatui was a new candidate in the
field, and, being a clean and popular young
man, would have made a strong: run. Waller
Bock is a very foxy flzhter, and. having been
in the ring before, with his experience, will
make a hard tight. The other candidate
would have been .an easy victim had lie se
cured the nomination, which was plainly
shown by the primary vote.
The crop of independent candidates will
be very plentiful this year, and will make the
ticket la.ger than it would be otherwise by
several inches. Nearly every ward in the
city has one or more of the independents on
both the Republican and Democratic tickets.
bat the Brewery ward will take the cake, for,
as it looks at present, canaid.ates from tcaf
bcctio.n o:i both sides of the fence will be as
plenty as iha autumn leaves that are now
falling from thetrees. ;
Every political convention leaves aches
and poms and the late Democratic conven

Lie that it could be or that any other political
conventio:i could be. One cf' those aches

as well as of old. The company is

Mrs. Harrison's Condition One
"Which May End in Death
at Any Time.
The Patient Does No Possess the
•' Consumptive's Cheerfulness
and Hopefulness.
Washington, Oct. C— Aside from the
usual changes characteristic in con
sumption cases, there has been no par
ticular alteration in the. i condition of
Mrs. Harrison since she was brought to
Washington from Loon Lake about
two weeks ago. Although critically
ill and in a condition where
a new complication might speedily,
prove . fatal, her case is not absolutely
hopeless, and instances" are known
where persons in a similarly extremely
'dangerous condition have so far recov
ered as to enjoy fair health for years.
ISuch instances are rare, however. The
president's family and friends cling to
the hope that Mrs. Harrison's case may
prove one of the exceptions to the rule.
The great dancer to be feared is the
reproduction of liuidin the chest cavity,
which"" might gather in twenty-four
hoars and prove fatal, especially if the
patient could not bear the operation of
aspirating. Mrs. Harrison's right lung
is entirely consolidated, so that she has
no use of it whatever. The left lung
is not involved. Although anxious for
prolonged life, the patient does not ex
hibit that cheerfulness and hopefulness
that is usually so apparent in the case
of consumptives. Tnis is due to the ex
treme nervous exhaustion from which
she suffers.
Ever since the commencement of her
illness she has been affected with ex
treme nervous prostration, and this has
doubtless had very much to do with ber
present condition. This extreme pros
tration has beeu one great cause which
has operated against her rallying. Her
mind" is perfectly cleai, and" she takes
a , certain amount of nourishment
each day. It consists principally of raw
eggs in a little wine and pepsin. It is'
not from a desire to eat, however, that
sue takes the nourishment, but merely
from a sense of duty and as a medicine.
Her coughing spells are not violent, and
don't worry the invalid very much ex
cept on rare occasions. Sleep during
the night comes to her in periods of
from one to two hours at a time, and
this without the aid of opiates. She has
very fair nights, being restless ouly at

A' Minneapolis Man Robbed With
Loaded Dice in St. Louis.
. St. Louis, Oct. 6.— A morning paper
says that P. A. Busch. a wealthy young
man of Minneapolis, . Minn., was
robbed of $805 in ; a saloon
on Clark avenue Tuesday night.
Busch fell in with two slick
young men and was escorted to the sa
loon, where he was induced to play dice
for small sums of money just for amuse
ment. Drinks were called for and.
eventually Mr. Busch lost his mental
clearness of vision. The dice we.-c
loaded and he rapidly parted with his
money. When the dice experts were
arrested one of them was seen
throw something into the water under
the counter where glasses are washed.
The article was fished out and found'
to be a roll of $S5 in greenbacks, all.
supposed .to belong' to Busch. Mr.
Busch could not remain in the city to
prosecute the prisoners, whose names
are James Leary and Enix Richardson,
and they were locked up under a charge
of vagrancy.

Death Came Peacefully and
Painlessly to the Great
He Died With the Moonlight
Bathing His Feat
After Death the Lines and
Wrinkles Vanish From
His Face.
He Will Be Buried in the
Famous Westminster
Loxnox, Oct. C— Alfred Tennyson
died at 1 :35 o'clock this morning. Lady
Tennyson, his son Hallam and his wife.
Sir Andrew Clark, Dr. Dabbs. the
nurses and other servants who had
been with him for tweuty-five years
were at his bedside when deatli come.
He was tranquil, conscious and painless
to the end.
He was turned yesterday raorsfßg at
his request lo face the light. After
looking at the window for several mo
ments, he spoke of the brilliancy of the
sunshine and the clearness of the air.
Early in the afternoon he slept lightly.

He woke and asked for his favorite copy
of Shakespeare, turned the leaves until
he found "Cyrabeline," and gazed atone
page for several minutes moving his
lips as if reading to himself. The
watchers waited in silence for him to
speak, but he finally laid down the vol
ume without having: uttered a word,
and with his finger still between the
leaves he fell asleep. The book was
not removed.
When Tennyson Awoke
toward evening:, he couia only spea'c in
a weak whisper. He thanked Dr. Dabbs
and Sir Andrew Clark for their faithful
attendance, and commended each of the
servants who had helped care for him
during his illness, and whispered a
word or two of gratitude to the nurses.
As the evening advanced the moon rose
in usual splendor and flooded the room
with lig.'it. Tennyson watched it
through the curtainless window with
his hand still resting between the leaves
of "Cymbeline."
At 10:30 o'clock he was sinking fast.
Ilallam Tennyson gave him a few
spoonfuls of brandy and milk; he swal
lowed with difficulty, and was unable to
take further nourishment. At midnight
lie whispered very feebly his last words
to his wife. His linger still marked the
passages of "Cymbeline" which he had
last read, and thus he died.
"In all my experience," said Sir An
drew Clark, "1 never witnessed any
thing more glorious. There was no
artificial lights in the chamber, all was
darkness except for the moon, wnich;
shone in the window and upon the bed
and on the features of
The Dying Poet,
and he lay like a picture." '
"The end came painlessly," saiS Hal
lam Tennyson; "he passed into sleep,
and the watchers could hardly distin
guish the fatal moment."
During the last few days of his illness
Tennyson was told occasionally ot hun
dreds of telegrams of inquiry received
at Aldeworth, and he expressed repeat
edly his gratitude that so many persons
far and near were watching anxiously
the course of his illness, liallam Ten
nyson read the despat«>ies from the
queen each day until yesterday, and his
father listened with evident pleasure.
Lady Tennyson made a brave effort
this morning to rally under her great sor
row, but she is almost prostrated by
sorrow and fatigue. .
The poet's death was announced only
after prolonged delay. Shortly before 2
o'clock the sky became clouded, and a
small rain began to fall. Most of the
reporters who had waited outside the
gate left. Sir Andrew took his carriage
to London, and from him came the first
news of the poet's death.
This evening Tennyson lies on the
bed on which he died. He looks hardly
sixty years old. The lines and wrinkles
have vanished from his lace, and his
beard, usually unkempt, has been
trimmed and brushed. His hands are
folded on his breast.
Wreaths of Lam-els
are at his head and foot and Virginia
creepers and autumn leaves are scat
tered around him. The room is lighted
dimly with caudles. Although the sur
roundings of the death bed are solemnly
impressive, pains have been taken in
deference to the dead poet's often ex
pressed wish to his family to avoid
everything suggestive of funeral forms.
The space reserved in Westminster
abbey for Tennyson's body is just to the
left of Robert Browning's tomb. No
services will be held in Haslemere Sun
day, but it is understood the bishop of
Winchester will refer in his sermon at
the parish church to the poet's death.
Several evening papers were today in
mourning for Tennyson. All puulished
long leaders that it is too soon lo give a
proper estimate or Tennyson's position
among the British poets. The Pall
Mall Gazette adds that Swinburne will
probably succeed Tennyson as poet
lauerate. and that In view of "the
abuses Swinburne has lavished upon
Mr. Gladstone, the choice would- be
characteristic ; an-* an instance of a
great man's magnanimity." •
Alfred Tennys'>Q was born in Som4W>y,
Lincolnshire. Kay., in 1809. His fattier, tile
.Rev. George Clayton Tennyson, was ihe rec
tor of Somersty oral vicar of Uenniugton
and Grinisby, ?rhile hi* mother was the
daughter of the Rut. Stephen Fytehe. vicar
of Loath. Be was the child of a family, of
twelve children. he talent which trained
for him the title of poet laureate of Eng
land bewail to develop itself in bis early
youth, for when eighteen years old he. with
bis brother Charles, who afterwards became
vicar of Grasby ami assumed thi name of
Turner, published a small volume entitled,
"Poems by Two Brothers."' The poems at
tracted some attention, those signed "A. T."
receiving the highest praise Coleridge de
claring that they alone of the selections gave
hopeful promise of :i coming poet."
■ The earlier training of Alfred a id Chnrles
was r.isumed by the father. Later Alfred
was sent to Trinity college. Cambridge. Here,
in lS'-i'J. he was awarded the chancellor's
medal tor the poem in blank verse, entitled
••Timbuctoo." A year later he published his
first volume of poems. "Chiefly Lyrical."'
••.Mariana"! was the only famous poem
in. this volume, but in a revised and en
larged edition issued in lt^i'l were found
the "My Queen." the '-Lotus Eater." "The
Lady of >haioit." "A Dream of Fair Women."
'•Oeiioue" and others that are still well
known. But this volume attracted but little
attention, and nothing but fugitive bits from
his pen appeared until IS4?. when he pub
lished •"English Idyls and Other Poems."
iie preserved . in _ ; this ) new ume all that •'•
he cared to have 'live of - bis efforts in*
earlier : publications. and - included in
them some of the works which gave him
place in the first rank of living poets, not
at.ly. "The Day Dream." "Ulysses," 'Lock
slcy Hall, "St. Simeon's Stylltes," "The Two
Voices," "The Talking Oak" and "Mort
d Arthur." One of the next great efforts
was "The Princess, a Medley," in blank
verse, with its theme the • proper • sphere of
women, published in IS!?.
--t In 1830 there appeared- anonymously what
was probably the purest and truest poem of
that period, Tennyson's -In . Memorium." .. a
series of 128 brief poems ail wrought together
in grand pathetic tribute to the memory of
the 'poet's college friend and companion,
Arthur Hallam. who died in- Vienna in 1833.
Hallam was a son ot : Hallam. - the historian,
and was engaged to marry 'Tennyson's
sister, a fact not known .generally until
many years : Inter. For ". seventeen' years
1 ennyson nad borne the sacred grief of his
friend's death, during which he composed
the elegies contained in the volume "in Me
■-; Nov. 81, 1S:>O, Tennyson was appointed to
the houorary place of poet laureate of Eng
land, succeeding Wordsworth. ".Maud and
Other I'oems" was published in 1855.
Whatever adverse criticism might have
been evoked' over "Maud" was lost
sight of ami forgotten through
the universally applauded . -Idyls
of the King." four stories in blank verse pub
lished in 1850 under the title- "Enid," -Vi
vien," "Elaine" and ••Genevieve," drawn
from the legends of King Arthur. Tennyson
had begun in these a series of epic poenii
which he continued In various volumes of
verse published during the next fifteen years,
entitled in the order of . their publica
tion, "The Holy Grail," "Gareth and
Lynett, v "Pelleas and Etarre," "The Last
Tournament." and "The Passing of Arthur."
These works did not include all his composi
tions for those years. In 1804 the poem which
has since become familiar to the whole of
Christendom, "Enoch Arden,"was published.
He was created a peer by Queen Victana in
i ISS4. Of late ;he has done some dramatic
' work, whicli is not up to his lyrical standard.

Whitcomb Eiley contributed to the In
dianapolis News the following tribute
to Tennyson :
We of the new world clasp hands with the

And noble fellowship.
Oh, master siuirer, with the finger-tip
Of death iaid thus on thy melodious lip.
All ages thou hast honored with thine art,

Of ail songs pure am! true.
Thine now the universal homage due
From old and new worlds— aye and
Aye, and still the new.

London', Oct. 7.— Sir Edwin Arnold
publishes the following poem in this
morning's issue of the Telegraph:
So moaning of the bar; sail forth, strong
Into that gloom which has God's face for
a light.
Not a dirge but a proud farewell from each
fond lip,
And praise, abounding praise, and fame's
taint starlighr,
Lamping thy tuneful soul to that large noon,
\\ here tbou ttnalt quire with angels.
Words of woe
Are for the unfulfilled, not thee whose moon
Of genius sinks full orbed, elorious. aglow.
No moaning of the oar, musical drilling,
Of time's waves, turning to the eternal
Death's soft wind all thy gallaut canvas
lifting •
And Christ thy pilot to the peace to be.
America, Kngland, Spain and j
France May Be Favored.
Paris, Oct, 6.— The foreign editor of
the Univers, one of the leading: Catholic
papers of Paris, said today in an inter
view: "The Catholic world is at pres
ent speculating a great deal on who the
new cardinals will be. My personal
opinion is that the pope's choice will
favor America, England, Spain and
France. If France should change her
Roman policy she could take advantage
of the situation and help to put a !
friendly pope in the Holy See* on Leo
Xlll.'s death" _
A Prominent Philadelphian Spec
ulates, in Stocks With Funds
of the Firm.
He Could Not Stand the Disgrace,
and Took His Own
Philadelphia, Oct. 6.— William M.
Hunk, of the extensive dry goods firm
of Darlington, Hunk & Co., committed
suicide this morning at his country
home at St. David's, near this city. It
is developed that Mr. Kunk
had been for some, time during
Mr. Darlington's absence dealing in
stocks. It appears that Eunk, whose
own personal estate is represented to be
a very handsome one, did. not make
these ventures with nis own funds, but,
aided by the absence of Mr. Darlington,
he employed the money of the linn of
Darlineton & Kunk to an aggregate of
about $80,000.
Upon Mr. Darlington's return he
made inquiries as to the course or' busi
ness while he was abroad, and was in
formed by Mr. Rank that certain bills
which had accumulated in the interval, i
aggregating the total stated above, had
been paid. When the discovery was
made yesterday that ' such was not
the case, Mr. Runk went direct to bis
home at St. David's. Later In the
evening, he wrote two letters and left
them upon his library table, addressed
to .Mrs. Kunk and to Mr. Darlington,
and acquainted them with the cause of
the act. The death of Mr. Eunk may
prove to be a heavy loss. He was a di
rector of the Perm Mutual company, of
this city, and at the time of his death
carried an insurance of $525,000 upon his
Mr. Eunk was prominent in the Sun
day School association of the diocese of
Pennsylvania, being one of the original
members, and a member of the board
of managers of the American Church

of Sunday school . lessons for

As a member of the Brotherhood of St. I

Er. Paso, Tex., Oct. — Advices from
i he interior ot Mexico give particulars
of a most deplorable state of affairs at j
Toliien. The poorer class is dying every j
day by hundreds from starvation and i
exposure, augumented by an epi- !
demic of typhoid fever. At Zacatecas !
182 deaths occurred last Sunday. The
people are crowing desperate! and in
several instances, notably that at More
lia, have attacked the government ware
house, overpowered the guards and
carried off the corn and other provisions.
To add greater distress to the piesent
state of affairs the corn crop of the sea
