New york, Aug. 14. Ira D. San key, known as an evangelist through out tho Christian world, died last night at his home In Brooklyn, but the news of his passing did not be come generally known until to-day. Mr. Sankey was sixty-eight years old, and for tho last five years he had been blind and Buffered from a complica tion of diseases brought on from over work. Almost to the very last he worked at hymn writing, the gift which had brought him fame In every corner of the earth. His tours throughout this country and Europe with Dwlght L. Moody, the evangelist, brought him Into wide prominence. Sankey, it might be said, wrote the Gospel Hymns of the world. In Chi na, Egypt, India, Japan. In almost every language known to man, San- key's hymns are sung. He received large Income from his publications and had acquired a considerable es- tnte. ' Among Mr. Snnkcy's most familiar compositions are "The Mnty ana Nine," and "When tho Mists J-nve Rolled Awny." His songs are said to have had a circulation of more thnn fif ty million copies. (Mr. Sankey was a rapid composer, some of his songs be ing written in the afternoon nnd sun? at the evening service. "The Ninety nnd Nine" came to him as an Inspira tion as he sat. at tho organ before a great congregation In Edinburgh, Scot land. He was called upon fir a song, and he could think of nothing appro priate for a moment. While he hesitat ed, he remembered a few lines of a verse ho had clipped from an l'.ngnsn Journal the day before and thrust Into his pocket, Placing the cupping oeiore him on tho quaint little organ, that he always took with him on his travels, he made up tho tune as he went along. He mado not a single change In tran scribing the music arter tne meeunsj closed. . Tt was one of the most Impressive hymns ever written. Apparently San key's source of supply was inexhaust ible, for ho wrote book after book of gospel hymns. In tho last five or six years he' was Interested in preparing and publishing the story of gospel hymns. At the same tlmo he saved his wonderful voice for posterity by singing Into phonographs. Tho rec ords were sent nil over the world. Pankey first met Moody by accident at a V. M. C. A. convention In Indianap olis. They visited Great Britain from 1S73 to 1S75, and again In 1S83, and mnrto mnnv tours throughout tho 1'nlted States. When Mr. Moody died In lSSfl. Mr. Sankey felt keenly the loss of his friend. From that time he tried to conduct tho work alone which they bad hitherto shared be tween them, but the task was too treat. In 1902 his physical condition compelled him to give up most of his cvnng.-lleal engagements, although ho rnntlnued for some time to do edi torial work In compiling a new ser Ions of hymn books. Thi.n tame falling; eyesight, whicn speedily developed Into total blino nfss With the blindness came also a nervous breakdown. After his re tirement from public life the Impres sion became general throughout tho country that he was dead. Ho him si'lf used to Ml of an argument no had with a man on a train as to whether or not ho was dfnd. In the beginning of his active life Sankey was a Methodist, but for the last sev en years he was a member of tho Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian church of lirooklyn. Ho Is survived, by a widow, Fannlo V. Sankey, his two sons, I. Allen Sankey, and Edward Sankey, and two grandchildren.

Lilley are beginning thus early In the cam paign to send out stories that are un true as regards .the caucuses being held In the various towns. Yesterday morning the report was published that in the town of Enfield two dele gates were elected for Mr. Lilley and two for Mr. Lake. The report further stated that Mr. Morrison led the forces for Lilley, but graciously allow ed two of the four delegates to bo classed on the side of Lake. The fact of the matter Is that th four delegates elected are all pledgeo: for Mr. Lake and furthermore, Mr. Morrison,, who Is alleged to have work ed for Mr. Lilley Is working tooth and nail for Mr. Lake, In like manner oth er reports are being sent out and pub lished In papers, which for some rea son seem to bo under the control or the Influence of Mr. LIHey, which would tend to make the race of Mr. Lake' look like a joke. 1 The truth ot the whole controversy Is that a scare has been thrown Into the ranks of the Lilley men In the past few days and many of tho lead ers In several districts, who were be lieved to be favorable to the Water bury man's candidacy, hnve been found hobnobbing and working with the Lake' forces. It will not be sur nrlslntr. therefore. If such work will continue, for the Lilley- backers have found that runaway raca for the nomination successfully blocked be fore It really had' begun,' In Windsor Locks two delegates were elected for Mr. Lake, and yet the morn ing papers yesterday, who favored Mr. Lilley, made no mention of the fact. The voters of the state need not be surprised to see statements of the standing of the two men Issued, in which Mr. Lilley is leading from two and three to one. This Is nil done to mislead' citizens who nre anxious to see some other than George L. Lilley re ceive the republican nomination for governor. Possibly to-day a true statement will be given out, with a guarantee mark attached to It nnd per haps soma names may appear In the list for Mr. Lake who are now boomed as Lilley exhorters.
