while at tho dinner of the Board of Trade

night caused the
body a few min
u t e s after 1 0

first speaker of tho
evening. The din
ner, which began
at 6 o'clock, was
after 9, and tho
secretary arose to
speak. He enter- william windom.
tained tho diners with a brief but forcible
oration, and sat down amidst the loud ap
plause of his auditors. Judge Arnouz
then got up and was in the midst of bis
speech introducing ex-Secretary Bayard,
when some one cried: "Look at Secretary
Died at the Danqneting Hoard.
The speech was broken short and every
eye was turned in the direction of that
gentleman. IIo had collapsed in his chair
and was falling to the floor. His face was
ghastly and a cry of horror arose from the
late festive revellers. There was an im
mediate rush on the part of all hands to
ward Mr. Windom's chair, but several
doctors who were guests at the dinner
got there first and drove the others back.
They were Drs. S. A. Robinson, Durant,
Whitney, Fisher, apd Bishop. Dr. Robin
son bent down and making a close exam
ination of the prostrate form, discovered
that tho heart was still beating. . By his
orders the dying secretary was carried
into tbe dish room adjoining the banquet
ing hall, and there placed on a table.
Messengers wero hastily dispatched for
electric batteries and as many as four
were applied to his body, which was rap
idly becoming cold. ,
The Terrible Announcement.
This was exactly at 10:05 p.m., and for six
minutes the electric shocks were applied
incessantly, but without success. At 10:11
p. m. Judo Arnoux came out of the dish
room and announced to tho diners that
Secretary Windom, whom they had tho
pleasure of hearing only a few minutes bo
fore, had breathed his last.
"Ho is dead."
This was the fearful announcement that
was sent through the gaily bedecked ban
quet hall, around which still hung liko a
funeral pall tho smoke of the after-dinner
"Ho is dead:"
Tho words went to tho heart of every
man who heard them. Could they be
lieveitf Tho brilliant orator of a few
minutes ljefore, aglow with enthusiasm,
predicting his future policy in tho treas
ury, was only a mass of clay. His voice
was forever silenced, and his last words
were for his country.
A Solemn and Awesome Scene.
Kvery man looked at his neighbor with
blanched cheeks. Death, that awful mes
senger, had descended upon their feast and
taken from tho crowd one of tho nation's
chief officers. A silence fell upon tho men
who wero only a few minutes beforo clam
oring for news of Mr. Windom. Judgo
Arnoux in retiring had announced that
Mr. Windom had only fainted, and it was
not thought by tho outsiders that it was
as serious as it proved to bo. The secre
tary had succumbed to an attack of the
heart. Ho had been for a long time a suf
ferer from heart disease, and only lust
Monday whs visited by a shock, which,
however, passed away without causing

CllAnLOTTE: Mich., Feb. 4. Russell C.
Canfield, tho inhuman murderer of little
Nellie Grlflin, escaped the lynchers' ropo
by pleudiug guilty yesterday and receiv
ing the sentence of life imprisonment.
About twenty-four hours after lie was
' captured he was In the etato penitentiary

case, but in the opinion of the enraged
people here she has been fur too merciful.
, j "'V'"'
j e,j blool, and had Canfield been Btlll in
jail here last night would have been his
last. It was his fear of mob vengeance
that caused him to confess, and dread of
the vigilantes' rope drove him to plead
guilty and seek safety behind tho solid
walls of the state's prison.
Made a Fatal Admission.
During tiie twelve-mile ride Monday
night vain attempts were made to obtain
a confession from Canfield. He told a
plain story, and was so frank that it was
tuouht likely that he would be able to
prove his innocence. Sitting by a fire In
tao sheriff's oifice at Charlotte, Mr. Bates
made another effort to get some admis
sion of guilt from Canfield, and was sur
prised to see some signs of his weakening.
Canfield said that he would like to see
Mr. Bates alone. The others left the room,
and Canfield said: "I'm perfectly innocent
of this crime, Mr. Bates, but I'm afraid
they are going to hang me."
"That is what you deserve," said Mr.
Bates. "What did you kill that little girl
"I don't know," said Canfield hurriedly.
Then seeing his fatal admission he sought
to recall it, but Mr. Bates pressed his ad
vantage, and in a few minutes Canfield
broke down and offered to tell all about it.
A Strange Confession.
According to Canfield's story, as told
Mr. Bates and signed by the prisoner, ho
got tho girl, as heretofore stated, from
tho Coldwater school. He gave his name
to the superintendent as G. Hendershott,
and made arrangements to take Nellie
Griffin with him to his alleged home. In
company with the girl he re urned to
Jonesville and thence to Dimondale.
After getting off the train at the latter
place Canfield. with his victim, took the
road leading to Mr. Harrison's farm. Be
fore reaching it hs struck off the traveled
highway, going through several tracts of
wood until he, with his charge, reached
the piece of timber by the river where the
body was found.
Slight Reason or the Murder.
They talked for a few moments and
Nellie manifested great distress of mind
and wept bitterly, begging Canfield to
take her back to the institution at Cold
water. Turning a deaf ear to tho girl's
pleadings, Canfield struck her down and
chocked her to death. He then denuded
her body of clothing and taking tbe
corpse in his arms threw it headlong into
the river. Tho clothes he took to Harri
son's farm and hid them under tho floor
of tho cow stable. Canfield maintained
stubbornly to the last that he had not
abused his victim.
Canfield's Statement Verified.
When Canfield had signed this confes
sion of his guilt be was at onco locked np
and , a guard placed' over him. Sheriff
I'hddoek, after taking precautions to
guard tiie jail in case of an attack, started
i fry f i. Ifnrrlaiin'a fnrm nnfll VM mll-wl nla
j to Manh tov the girl's clothes. Uqderthe
floor of the cow stable on Mr. Harrison's
fHrm tho clothes were found wrapped In a
bundle. Mr. New kirk lelt for Coldwater
yesterday morning, taking tbe body with
him for burial in tho state public school
cemetery. ' Previous to his departure Cor
oner'Benedict convened tho jury and a
verdict was found in accordance with tho
facts admitted by Canfield in his confes
sion. His Matrimonial Expert ences.
The Harrison family say that Canfield's
only. weakness was a fondness for the so
ciety of young girls. This characteristic
was the cause of a good many jokes on
him, which he seemed to take good-naturedly.
He has been married twice. His
first wife lived with him twenty-seven
years, and then ran away with another
man, and said that she was sorry that she
hadn't done so twenty-seven years sooner.
Canfield secured a divorcc( and immedi
ately afterward married an old maid in
Lenawee county, who left him soon after.
This second" failure in matrimonial ven
tures so chagrined Canfield that he closed
up his business matters in Lenawee coun
county and weut to the vicinity of Char
lotte to live. But he did not get a divorce.
Why He Wanted a C.lrl.
Sensitiveness to tho jokes of his neigh
bors is what caused him to make his last
and fatal attempt to secure a wife. By
some means ho hit upon the plan of adopt
ing a girl and then after she had grown to
a sufficient age of marrying her and thus
put a stop to the annoyanco of neighbor
hood gossip concerning his unsuccessful
endeavors to secure a wife. When he
reached Dimondale it is evident that he
repented his foolish undertaking and was
at a loss for a plan to dispose of the girl.
He could not take her to Harrison's as his
adopted daughter, nor could ho marry
her, as lie was still legally bound to Mrs.
Canfield No. 2.
In tliis dilemma it is evident front Can
field's statements as to the route taken by
him after leaving the Dimondale depot
with the child that ho was at a loss for
lomowrfyln which to Iiecome free to re
turn to his employment without his volun
tarily acquired incumbrance. This is the
key to the murder. His statement that
he had not abused the girl is disproved by
the medical examination.
