The Distinguished Divine Passes Away
in Atlanta on Sunday Morning.
A telegram was received yesterday by
Mr. xjecKwiiu, oi inis city, announcing
the death, in Atlanta. Ga., Sunday mornj
iny at six o'clock, of the Rt. Rev. John
Walrous Beckwith. Bishop of the
Dioceee of Georgia.
Bishop Beckwith was born in Raleigh,
February 9th 1831, and belonged to one
of the most distinguished families of this
btate. He was a son of Dr. John Beck
with, and his mother was Margaret, sis
ter of the distinguished John Stanly, of
New Berne N. 0.
Many of the old citizens of Raleigh
remember Dr. Beckwith's affable and
agreeable manner, and his gentle and
skilful offices in the sick chamber or by
tho couch of suffering.
Bishop Beckwith graduated at Trinity,
Hartford, Connecticut, in 1852, and was
oid dned a priest in the Episcopal church
May 20th, 1855. His first pastoral work
was in Cavalry church, Wadesboro,
At the beginning of the civil war he
removed to Mississippi and become Rec
tor of All Hallow's church, Washington
county, and at the close of the war be
removed to Louisville and become Rec
tor of Trinity church, New Orieans,
where he remained until his elevation to
He was consecrate! Bishop of Georgia
in St. John's church. Savannah, Ga.,
April 2nd, 1868, by Bishop Green, of
Mississippi, Atkinson, of N. C, Wilmer,
of Alabama, and Young, of Florida.
Bishop Beckwith was ono of the most
distinguished divines of this country.
He was eloquent in the highest degree,
and was unexcelled as a reader.
Those of our people who had the plea
sure of hearing him preach at Morehead
the past summer will not soon forget the
eloquence of this grand man.
In his death a great man is fallen, and
his presence is one that will bo sadly

Scarce by Withdrawing: the Circu
lating Medium and Thus Causing
There's nothing the master with his
health, and he is in WaU street once
more, as large as life and twice as vin
dictive. After each of his retirements
he has reappeared at a critical moment
to tomahawk those who had incurred
his enmity, but never has he dangled at
his belt so many scalps as on the present
It now becomes clear that for a long
time past he had been accumulating
money. His friends claim that he has
an incoma of some 700,000 per month.
This, of late, has not been reinvested,
but kept on hand, and in addition he
has raked and scraDed together cash
from every possible quarter, foreseeing
that monpy was soon to be much scarcer
and more valuable than securities.
Hoarding the Needful.'
Moreover, it is contended that the dis
appearance of various large sums from
the banks, as indicated by their weekly
statements some time ago, were with
drawn by him and locked up until he
should be ready to use them. Aside
from this sort of thing, however, he and
his friend Russell Sage, personally and
through the financial institutions in
which they are interested, control a vast
amount of money.
While "the Wizard" was heaping up
cash, "the stieet" was in debt for the
mass of stocks and bonds it was carrying
on money borrowed from banks and
trust companies, and the debt was being
constantly increased by the necessity for
taking up and carrying the securities
tnat were being constantly sent over
here from Europe, where la honte finance
knew of the difficulties of the Barings
Money was meanwhile nowing away to
the West and South in a steady stream;
lenders exacted highest rates; it began
to bo difficult to carry stocks; prices fell
under forced sales; failures occurred;
distrust reigned supreme, and finally, on
Saturday last, came the news that the
Barings were in trouble-and that Europe
consequently would not be in posi
tion to help that market for a long time
Now is the Time.
Now was "tho Wizard's" opportunity.
What did he want? Certain properties
which he had formerly attempted to con
trol, but from which he and his son had
been contemptuously (as he thought) ex
cluded. He wanted these properties
much, but he wanted revenge still more.
He wanted revenge first of all on (ren
Sam Thomas. U. b. Brice and their as
sociates in the Richmond Terminal com
pany. 'The Wizard" more than a year
ago bought more than one thensand
shares of this company for his son George
and 10 000 shares for himself, and en
tered its directory. He was not permit
ted to have his own way, and soon re-
obtained control of the shares he will
resign the presidency perhaps to-morrow.
A third victorv for the little
'Wizard" a victory over the man who
enjoyed the confidence of New England
investors when they would not trust the
"Wizard," over the man who, years ago
in "Chanters of Erie." characterized
"the Little Wizard" as a modern pirate
Thus, like some savage beast emerging
from the jungle in which he has lain
CDncealed, "the Little Wizard," in this
ime of universal dismay and distress,
has emerged to seize UDon his prey.

London, Nov. 24. It is expected that
the Queen's speech, at the opening of
Parliament to-morrow, will refer to the
Behring Sea dispute as in a condition
which gives every reason to hope for a
speedy and amicable settlement
It will declare that assistance from
he government has become a necessity
in Ireland, owing to the shortage in the
potato crop of certain districts.
It will also urge the necssitv of the
immediate passage of the Irish land
purchase bill or some similar measure.
The settlement of the dispute is earnestly
recomended, and some extensions of the
factories act, with a view of restrictions
in the employment of workmen in dan
gerous situations is suggested.
