V* LAST OF EARTH. Bemainn of General Rusk Laid Rest Jn the Cemetery at Vlroqufc at Hundreds of Distinguished People Including Ex- President Harrison Were Present to Do Him Honor. Three Special Train Were Kun. Vir«qua, Wis., Nov. 25.—A great gathering of people bared their heads to a brisk, cold wind that blew steadily from the west while the last earthly tribute was paid to Jeremiah M. Rusk, ex-governor, ex-congressman and late secretary of agriculture in President Harrison's cabinet. The ex-president, who was very fond of General Rusk, journeyed all the way from Indianapolis to this little village in Western Wiscon sin and followed the remains to their last resting place, walking with the family as one of the chief mourners. The obse quies mi) A flttlag Flaale of the simple life of Wisconsin's com moner, the most picturesque character the state has ever produced. The bit terly cold weather did not prevent the people from the entire surrounding country from attending the funeral, and many thousands of strangers were pres ent, large delegations coming from the most distant parts of the Northwest. Three heavy special trains arrived during the day, the first arriving from LaCrosse. The second, from Madison, brought Governor Peck, the most of the state officers, juilgen of the supreme court, and a large number of other prominent people from Madison, where General Rusk spent seven years as gov ernor, and a great deal of his time in other capacities ljefore and since. Brought I'rraldent Harrt»on. The third and largest special came from Chicago and Milwaukee, bringing 700 notable people, including ex-Presi dent Harrison. ex-Attorney General Miller, Captain Meredith, ex-public printer Edward Willetta, assistant sec retary of agriculture Senators Philetus Sawyer and John C. Spooner ex-Gov ernor W. D. Hoard General Lucius Fairchild Henry C. Payne and a large delegation of the Loyal Legion and Masonic fraternities. This spe cial train left Milwaukee at 7 o'clock in the morning, making a rapid and uneventful run to Viroqua. As early as Thursday morning people began coming to town in every imaginable conveyance, and long before noon the largest concourse ever seen in this part of the state had gathered. Th* Funeral Arrangement* were in accordance with the wfelies of General Rusk. A private and impres sive ceremony was held late Thursday afternoon at the residence, a mile from the town, Rev. George Nuzuin of the Methodist church officiating. The widow, four children and a large num ber of sorrowing relatives and cloBe friends lieing present. The remains, resting in a handsome, but plain, cedar casket, draped with an American flag and fairly buried under floral emblems, was conveyed to the little Methodist church in town, members of the Masonic fraternity in which General Rusk stood very high acting as an escort of honor. At the church, a delegation from Alexander Lowrie Post, G. A. R., all associates of the dead soldier, stood guard, while the remains were lying in state all night, ami the whole of the day, until the time of the burial. The little church holds only about 850 people, and a continuous stream passed by the bier op to the last moment. There were Many Affecting 8mm* as old veterans limped to get a fare well look at the familiar face and in many instances weeping and audibly ex pressing their grief and sorrow. Gen eral Rusk was a man of wonderful pop ularity with the masses and evidences of the most genuine grief were to be seen on all sides. He looked a very giant in his coffin, with his long white hair and flowing, snowy beard, the face showing little or no emaciation from his long and painful illness. The casket was encased in a burglar proof I steel case, which was sealed shortly be fore the burial. The little town showed [every evidence of the great loss, its people had sustained in General Busk's death. Mm( Flags Were at Half on the public buildings and factories and nearly all the stores were draped in mourning, crep.• and black, while bunt ling fluttered o'« all sides.- Business was entirely su*iended and citizens hospita blyoffered entertainment to the thousands of strangers who had come to join with them in the last honors. Immediately upon the arrival of the presidential spe cial, Mr. Harrison and party were Iriven to the Rusk home, Where they personally offered condolence to the aiemler8 c' the stricken household. Then they visited the church, occupy ing the seats reserved for the family and Iuany listinguished strangers. An immense rowd gathered around the little church, of them standing in the deep saow ith bared heads during the service, de pite the intensely c61d weather. The oral offerings were very numerous and mutiful, and came from all ports of he countrv. a number of lam? l«rien* troui late official associates at w asn ington, from ex-President Harrison's, family, from fellow members of the cab inet, the Loyal Legion and the Masons. The public services were of an extern* pore eha acter and were conducted by Rev. Mr. Nuzum of the Methodic church and Professor D. Butler, a warm personal friend of General Rusk. Prof. Butler was for many years with the Wit consin university and was previously a Congregational minister. He was 80 years of ag9 yesterday and made a feel ing and beautiful address, a last tribute to his lifelong friend. Shortly before his death, General Rusk asked his wife to send for Professor Butler to help to bury him. A choir rendered a number of favorite selections, and there were one or two solos. The religious services were fol lowed by the reading of the beautiful burial service of the Masonic blue lodge by E. Benzonberg, commander of the Wisconsin consistory. The Masons all wore mourning. The little church was effectively draped. There was a large portrait of General Rusk back of the altar framed in crepe, and a large silk flag draped the altar. The Favorite -Old Glory so affectionately referred to by the gen eral in one of his recent public addresses. The honorary pall-bearers were ex-At torney General Miller.

I5STABLISHKL) MADISON. SOUTH DAKOTA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBEtt 25. 1893 FiiEE Synopsis of the New Tariff Bill to Be Presented to Con gress. Nearly all Raw Materials May Imported Free of Duty. Be Internal Revenue Features, Except the Income Tax, Have Been Agreed Upon. JCwwr Yowc, Nov. 2.V—Th# Herald's Washington correspondent says he is able to send an accurate outline of the tariff bill, as far as determined. The free list will include nearly all raw and crude materials which enter into manufactures. Wools, hair of the camel and goat, bituminous coal, iron ore, lumber, i-alt, silver, lead ore, flax, hemp and jute and a large number of chemicals will all be free of duty when the new bill takes effect. This will be the chief benefit to manufacturewb af forded by the new measure, but they will also get the benefit in a number of cases of an extension of time of from three to six months to work off accumu lated stocks before the reduced duties on finished products takes effect. Bottle*, OlaHvare, Etc. The specific duties on bottles, glass ware and plate glass may possibly be retained, but they will be decidedly re duced and plate glass is likely to be pat at a uniform ad valorem rate of 60 per cent. Steel rails will probably be put at |8 or $9 a ton. Rails will be one of the few articles upon which a specific duty will be retained. Pig iron will probably be put at 5 per cent ad valorem, as proposed in the last congress, and bar iron will be reduced at least 50 per cent. Tin plate will be changed I cent per pound and increased imports are counted upon to make the revenue nearly as great as under the present duty of 2 2-10 cents. THe specific duties n abolished and cutlery will be ad tuted. valorem duty substi Till on the Free I.h»t. Block tin will go back on the free list, I where it was before the enactment of i the McKinley bill and copper ON will follow it upon the same list. A uniform ad valorem duty will be imposed upon finished manufactures of wood, but logs will be free. The textile schedule will not suffer quite so much as China and metals for there will be a few duties. Specific du ties and compensatory duties will almost universally be wiped off the statute. The committee believe that a reduc tion of 5 or 10 per cent in the silk duties will yield as much revenue as at present. Wool goods will follow substantially the rates of the Springer bill, but some of the cheaper goods, especially cloth, will be put in a clause at 80 per cent. The rate on nearly all manufactures of cotton will be 40 per cent. This will include hosiery. Manufactures of flax, hemp and jute will be greatly reduced, in view of the placing of the raw ma* terial on the free list. I And see the stock 01 AND dZJ URNKKAL MKRC MA SIMMS. TheWorld is Fair! UNION BLOCK DHESS GOOnS AND FISDXSGS, Ladies Furnishing Goods, v /and everything to make life at home or abroad bright and Fair I Free lltnriiiiiiiK Twine. Binding twine is likely to be made free of duty. The high duties imposed on agricultural products will be merci lessly slaughtered. A dxity will be re tained on lemons and oranges, but sev eral other fruits will go upon the free list. The duty on wrapper tobacco will be minced to $1 or $1.50 per pound when nnstemiaed and 50 cents more per pound when stemmed. An ad valorem rate of 25 per cent will probably be fixed on all grades of sugar, although this is one of the questions still open. The poorer grades of sugar come in at a low figure. The duties on gloves will be reduced. The internal revenue features of the bill are .tgretxl upon, except the form of the income tax. There will be no in crease on beer, tobacco or cigan. The only change will be on whisky. The additions to the the free list will cause considerable loss of revemie, and while reductions of duty are counted upon to produce increased imports, this effect may not appear for a year or two. The proposed duty on sugar will bring in about $30,000,000, and it is thought that SOUKS $30,000,000 or $40,000,000 will be received from the increase in whisky and from the income tax.
