Buckley, editor of the Christian Ad vocate, was vindicated tonight by the committee composed of nine clergymen of the New York East conference of the Methodist Episcopal church, ' who for two days had considered charges made by the Rev. Dr. George A. S. Cooke, of Brandon, Vt. It was said that Dr. Cooke personally conducted the -ase against Dr. Buck- Icy', and that the charges of disloyalty to the church were based on his refusal to publish In the Christian (Advocate certain articles criticising the church and some of its officers, said to have been prepared by Dr. Cpoke.

He was 74 years old. Death came shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday morning and was due to a general breakdown, due to advancing years and a complication of asthma and heart diseases.' He had neen failing for some months. ' Often he has been attacked of late during the night by a loss of breath which wculd make breathing very difficult. But his constitution has been so rugged ail his life that his ln dominable ambition would not admit defeat. The end came suddenly. Mr. Fowler had been out -within a week. He was attended by Dr. Willis. H. Crowe of Whalley avenue. ' ' The funeral services will be held at Christ church Sunday afternoon at. 2 o'clock and will be of the simplest character, such as would suit the. de ceased best. The simple Episcopal ser vice will be used and there will be no music. The services at the house will be omitted. '" Rev. Dr. G. B. Morgan, rector of Chrit church where Mr. Fow ler has been a vestryman for over 15 years, will officiate. The body will be burled the same afternoon in East Ha ven cemetery, where the Knights Tem plar, of whom Mr. Fowler was a mem ber, will take charge. One or two characteristics predom inated in Mr. Fowler to an extraordin ary degree. These were his great love of his family and his devotion to his homo life, his faithfulness to bis church and his capacity for work. Not for years before his death had he taken a vacation of any extent. His devotion to his two twin daughters has been of late years a subject of universal com ment. Mr. Fowler was the son of David Sullivan Fowler and Charlotte Holti Fowler. He was born March 17, 1833, which would have made him nearly 75 years of age at the time of his death, although he did not look nearly that. His father was sheriff of the county; for two terms. He was the first man to hold the title of high sheriff. It was during his term of office that the pres ent Jail on Whalley avenue was built. The Jail now stands but a block from the Fowler home, at 205 Whalley ave nue, where Mr. Fowler died. He was registered, upon leaving the medical school, as a physician of the homeopathic school. He then entered the Yale Law school and graduated with 'the class of '62. At the time or his doath he was secretary of his class. At that time the law school was sit uated on Crown street in the old opera house. There; were not more than twenty-five or thirty pupils In ', the school at th time. Upon graduating, Mr. Fowler immediately went Into the practice of law In partnership with the late Judge Dutton, who was one. of the leading practitioners of the time. At the same time Mr. Fowler was a tutor in the Yale 'Law school, Mr. Fowler later went more especial ly Into the practice of patent law which work took him to New York, Wash ington and the south. After the civil war he was intimately associated with Charles O'Connor In the defense of Jef ferson Davis. He and iMr O'Connor got up the defence for the trial of Da vis' but the case never came up. To gether they induced Horace Greeley, then editor of the New York Tribune, to furnish a bond of $100,000 for Davis. Mr. Fowler had a letter which he would show? upon being , urged 'which was from Jefferson Davis. It was the first letter which came through the Union lines after the civil war by war rant of the government. Later Mr. Fowler returned to New Haven. Since that time he has always remained here. Not long after he was associated with the New Haven road as assistant counsel. This was in the early seven ties. He was at that time one of the leading lawyers in Nev Haven. His services were widely sought, especially in Jury cases, in which he did remark ably well. His gifts of oratory and of debate were remarkable. Although always greatly interested in politics and public welfare he never sought office. Indeed it has been SilW of him that, had he seen fit to seek office, he would undoubtedly have made a great success as a politician. He was one of the guides of the city dem ocratic party, and a prominent member of the Monticello club, then having its (headquarters on Temple street. The ;club advocated the principles of Jeffer sonian democracy, Sime time before he had been a representative in. the legislature when the state house was on the New Haven green. But that was the only public office he ever held. Ho began and continued the opposition in this state to capital punishment. For the last year it is safe to say that he never missed once going to Hartford there to appear and speak before the proper committee of the assembiy against ithe practice. '. Mr. Fowler was a past grand master of the Adelpbj. lodge, A. F. and A. M., and a past grand patron of the Con necticut branch of the Order of th& Eastern Star. He was also a Knight Templar, as had been said. He was a. member of the David Humphreys branch of the Sons of the American Revolution. The deceased was a prominent mem ber of Christ church. Ho had been a vestryman since before the ten-lug down of the old church. When seen yesterday, Dr. Morgan, the reeton of the church,, said that Mr. Fowler had endeared himself to all in the church. Ha was especially active, he said, in doing good in a quiet and unostenta tlous way to the poor. At the church he was an active member of the Order of St. Andrew. Indeed only: Tuesday night did the members of the order pass a vote to send sympathy to Mr. Fowler that he was 111 and express to him their wish that lie might see a speedy recovery. They all intended to call upon him at the first opportunity and their surprise and grief at hear ing of his death was of courso double fold since it came so unexpectedly Mr. Fowler was- twice married. His children by his first wife are Mrs. B. F. R. Varick of Stamford, Dr. Tbeo dosia Fowler Schoeney of New York, and Charles F. Fowler, an. engineer in China. By his second wife, iMrs. Kate Starkweather Fowjer, who survives him, there are four children surviving Charlotte S. Fowler, George S. Fovv ler,' business manager of the .Yale Alumni Weekly,' Kathryn and Helen Fowler. - ', ., .;. . ' - He also leaves three brothers, John H. and James B. Fowler of Sperry & Barnes, both of this city; George S. of Newark, N. J., arid one sister, . Mrs. Sarah Scott of New York.
