Field his Slaughter, Mrs. Isabella Jndnon, and her fwo sons, Cyrus Field Jndson and Frank -|Fuds^n. Mr. Field had leen suffering from physical and mental exhaustion brought on by the many troubles which bave overtaken him during the past year. Cyrns West Field's patent of nobility 4vh» made eternal and irreversible on the ~|!T*„h i,t July. when thu dlnpatch was flashed across the Atlantic and over both -Continents that the Atlantic cable was #uc:**sfully laid and in perfect working 4rder In the events which led to and 'followed that dispatch lie his claims to immortality, and no man can doubt that the claim will b« fully honored. His fame |s forever secure Through all time the luan who laid the Atlantic cable will hold Jbigh rank among the great ones of his tory. Columbus thedincoverer, Washiug ton the deliverer and Lincoln the pre w .#erver are not more certainly enshrined lor all time than the man who bound the continents together by the wonderrul i rffnechaniam of instant thought transfer ence. Mr. Field's father, David Dudley Field, f-lergvman, of East Guilford, Coon., is •j llestined to pass into history as the father the "four noted Fields." His four «ons wer.'

The four brothers held their last ^ocial r-union on the 2d of December, 189-.), ,,Jit the home of Cyrus, in Gramerct park, Kew York, the occasion being the celebra tion of his golden wedding. In 1*53, having acquired a considerable fortune in the paper manufacturing busi ij|jess, Mr. Field passed si* months in travel in South America, and about that '^ime his brother, it is said, suggested to „im that a telegraphic line might be laid "Hcross the Atlantic ocean. His imagina tion took fire at once. His destiny was fixed. For the next thirteen years the «nan was swallowed up in the work. It would be a wearisom task to go over the details of these eventful years, of Mr. ••••.Field's mauy journeys across the Atlantic find his final success in getting the needed .'funds. Suffice't that on the atith of June, 1837, the United States steamship Niagara 'Jawl the British steamer Agamennon took each its half of the cable in midocean and commenced laying toward its own coast. The wire soon broke, and broke again, and Jy-et again, ajd so that plan was a failure. In 1858.the cable was actually laid, the vessels arriving at their destination July t£9 aud Aug. S. A few mes&agea passed Mini there was an international hurrah. •, rThen '.,vC all communication ceased and for ^seven years nothing was done. The civil iwar sbsorbed the energies of the people. But all that time Mr. Field and his sub prdinates wei-e experimenting, and at last n cable was devised which, in the opinion of experts, might lie under salt water a thousand years without injury. The 'famous leviathan steamer, the Great pastern, was then employed, and this time, in 1865, the cable broke. Still the indefatigable Cyrus kept the field. And now a system of tanku,trolleys, drums and regulating wheels was estab listed on the steamer, so compUaated that A description would fill two column*. The effect was hat no matter bow rough the '^oather might be the cable coold be paid •s*ut with perfect regularity and without Mack or strain. The rest is known, On the 13th of July the Great Eastern aterted from the Irish coast, and on the 27th -grounded the American end of the cable Heart's Content, Newfoundland. Ita A '^operation Was perfect. v Then all Euroue and America broke '-i" r," ri i i -r" forth i'i 'in ficvtum an-l Cyrus Feld was overwhelmed. There were dispatches of eoiigrau'.uuou from Gliultitone and from Bismarck, from the queen, the president and the French emperor, and last, but moat wonderful perhaiH, one from Ferdi nand de Les.«epa, n% Ale.xnuiiria, Kgypt, which wa*- s^ut at 1:3J p. m. and reuched Newfoundland at lij a. m. the same day. For weeks thereafter Mr. Field's life was a continuous ovation. Old readers recall with enthusiasm the banquets, the •oogs, the pi'oceHHiuus kud still more the cartoons and the jokes. Congress voted him a gold med«l and the national thanks. England And France followed with vote*, thank* and medals. .John Brixhtinthe Hritibh parliament, expressed his profound regret, that the constitutions of the two nations stood in the way of con ferring on Mr. Field the highest honors in the power of the queen. In 1870 Mr. Field was largely interested In the New York elevated railroad. Hia fortune at that time wat estimated at 14,500,000, half of which was lost in a "squeew" in which Jay Uould waaa prin cipal factor. Keceut events are painfully familllar to the general reAl»r.

At a recent meeting the Western Passenger Agents' association refused to grant re duced rates on this occasion, and the Northern Pacific, which is not a mem ber of the association, announced that it would make a one-fare rate.
