I1 DESPITE DEMOCRATIC ATTEMPTS AT DELAY THE BOOSE DOES SOME BDSQIESS, Tho Obnoxious Tactics of the Bourbons Kept Up-The Senate—Secretary Tracy’s Condition—General Capital Gossip. Washington, Fab. 4.—That the democrats did not consider themselves yet vanquished and that they proposed to throw every obstacle in the way of the transaction of business uutil some rules were adopted for government was shown by the*? reading of yesterday’s journal in full. The reading having been completed McKinley moved that the journal be ap proved and demanded the previous ques* lion. The previous question was ordered yeas 165 nays 0, the number of democrats being entered on the journal as present and not voting. The vote on the approval of the journal was then taken, resulting yeas 163, naysO. Mr. Springer moved to adjourn. Suggesting this was a proper time to enter puck a motion, and on this occasion the motion was entertained by the speaker only to be defeated by a vote of yeas 114, nays 161. The speaker then proceeded to lay before the house various senate bills for reference, and among them was one to relieve the treasurer of the United States of the amount now charged to him and deposited with the several states. This bill the speaker referred to under the rules to the committee on ways and means Mr. Bland moved the bill be referred to the committee on appropriations, the sneaker at first declined to entertain Bland's motion, but after debate he said that for the present the chair would follow the ruling of the last house. Mr. Springer demanded the reading of the bill and expressed his ability to show by parliamentary law that the demand should be complied with. The speaker ignored Springer, but the latter was indefatigible, and finally the speaker directed the reading of the bill. Blat J’s motion was defeated—yeas, 9; nays. 151 (quorum being counted by the speaker) Mr. Flower moved the bill be referred to the committee on judiciary; defeated, —Teas 94; nays 135. For the first time in several days this was not a strict party vote When the result was announced McKinley moved the reference of the bill to the committee on ways and means and upon that motion demanded the previous question. Mr. McCreary then moved to adjourn, but the speaker declined to entertain the motion. The speaker said ordinarily the motion to adjourn was in order, but the situation of the house was such as to rendoi it improbable that the house desired to take that action. The proceedings to day have been of the same character as those of the preceding days, and it was evident to the chair that these motions were made for the purpose of obstruction and delay. The chair had already ruled upon this point and an ap-P* a1 had been taken and the decision of the chair had been sustained. Mr. McCreary then rose to a question of personal privilege when a demand for the previous question was made. After some further discussion a vote wae taken on the demand for the previous question and it was defeated; yeu3 157, nays 0. During the railing of the roll Springer held a consultation with McKinley, the result of which was the democrats made no further opposition and the bill was referred to a committee on ways and means without division. Then, on a motion of McKinley, the house adjourned. It is expected the code of rules will be reported to-morrow. TH* SENATE. Among the bills introduced and referred was one by Wolcott for the admission as a state of New Mexico, and one by Plumb for tho protection of American bison. Mr. Ingalls presented a petition asking an appropriation of $100 per capita for emigrants to Liberia; referred. Mr. Plumb offered a resolution (which was agreed to) calling on the secretary of war to furnish copies of the various reports of military officers in relation to affairs at Guthrie and Oklahoma City since the opening and settlement of the territory. After an executive session the senate adjourned. GENERAL CAPITAL GOSSIP. Amatorial -- outer members of the international American conference attended in a body, and the diplomatic corps and congress were well Ci’fttsented. The chief officials of the executive departments of the government were also present THE W AS BLINGION HO EBO Ii. Secretary Tracy Improving—TA* F«-aeral Services. Washington, Feb 4 —Secretary Tracy continues to improve slowly. Many prominent people called at the house during the morning to inquire after him. His son, Frank B Tracy, is now with him, having arrived here at 10:30 this morning on a special train. He is the first member of the family the secretary has seen since the awful calamity yesterday morning and his presence was a source of j ly and hope to the bereaved parent. I lie president sent over early in the morning to inquire after Secretary Tracy and Private Secretary Halford called later with regard to Tracy’s removal to the white house. The physicians attending Mrs. and Miss Wilmerding said this morning that their Datients passed a fair night and are better to day. The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. and Miss Tracy will he held at eleven o’clock. The bodies will be tem- A HUNDRED YEARS OU) CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF THE ORGANIZATION OF THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY. Commemorative Literary Exercises at the Metropolitan Opera House in Sew York City—Speaking by Butler and Cleveland. New Yoke, Feb. 4 —The sad events of the last few days at Washington dimmed considerably the celebration of the centennial of the federal judiciary that was inaugurated this morning. The attendance at the Metropolitan opera house was the most noted that ever filled the magnificent building. The interior of the building was elaborately decorated. On the right of the stage in the front row were seated the members of the United States supreme court. Others seated on the stage inclined ex-President porarily deposited in a receiving vault at I Cleveland, ex-Chief Justice Wm. Strong .?ntil th£[ flnfi Senator Evarts. I. J. Semmes, of Nev disposition is determined upon. The pall bearers for Mrs. Tracy will be as follows: Secretaries Windom, Proctor, Noble and Rusk, Attorney General Miller, Postmaster General Warmaker, Admiral Porter and Rear Admiral Rogers. About eleven o’clock to-day Secretary Tracy got out of bed and dressed himself, and showed such strength that he was allowed to descend to the library and remain there during a portion of the day. He was later removed to the White House in a cab His physicians pronounce him out of danger. Shortly after hie arrival ae the white house he requested that he be taken into the east room and bs shown the caskets containing the remains of bis wife and daughter. They were covered with beautiful flowers. Standing at the head between them both was a large palm tree arranged so the leaves dropped gracefully over the dead. The secretary was very much affected over the sight and sobbed as though his heart would break. The casket containing Mrs Tracy’s body was opened and he was allowed to look upon her face for the last time. The other body was in no condition for inspection and the casket was not opened at all. It was a terrible ordeal for the stricken man, but he bore it remarkably well, though there wae no concealing the keenness and depth of his grief. This evening Secretary Tracy received a cablegram through Sir Julian Paunce-fote, stating: ’‘Thequeen deeply deplores the calamity to Secretary Tracy’s family, and enquires after him and the other survivors ” The secretary replied as follows: "Secretary Tracy begs the British minister to convey to her majesty his sincere thanks for ber gracious message of sym-1 tion of the court in 1787 and followed it New Orleans; General Sherman, Noah Davis, Chauncey M. Depew, W. W. Astor, Charles P. Daly, and David Dudley Field. When ex-President Cleveland, who was chairman, stepped forward to open the meeting it was some minutes before he could speak, because of the applause. Bowing his acknowledgements and expressing his appreciation of the generous welcome accorded him. Cleveland then began his address, of which the following is a part: ‘ ‘In the work of creating our nation the elements of free government were supplied by concessions of the soverign states, by the surrender of accustomed rights and by inspiration of pure and disinterested patriotism. If from these elements there has not been evolved that feature in our federal system which is our theme to-day, the structure might have been fair to look upon and might have presented a semblence of solidity and strength, but it would have been only a semblance, and the completed edifice would have with in its fondations the infirmity of decay and ruin. * Rev. Dr. Morgan Dix, of Trinity church, followed with an invocation. Ex-Judge William H. Arnoux, chairman of the judiciary centennial committee of the New York State Bar association, next delivered a brief address of welcome to the court. The principal address of the day by the veteran lawyer, William Allen Butler, entitled "The Origin of the Supreme Court of the United States and Its Place in the Constitution,’’ was frequently applauded. The speaker went to the crea- pathy; and in reply to the kiud inquiry to say that the surviving daughter aud grandchild are out of danger.’’ ITALIAN SYMPATHY. Caton Tava. the Italian minister tonight, received a message from Signor Crispie, premier of Italy directing him to tender the cordolence af the Italian government to both secretary Tracy and Blaine. _ THE BALLOT-BOX FRAUD. Governor Campbell A sain 'I ostia** Bolero the Bouw Committee. Washington, Feb. 4.—Gov. Camp bell was before the special house commute on ballot-box forgery again to day. In the course of his testimony he said Editor Halsted had been forced to admit lie did not intend to use the uaper until just before the election, this explained why he did not consult with Senator Sherman and others. Then,, too, ho hoped it would be too late for any proof beyond his (Campbell’e) denial to be produced and thus defeat his election. If he had believed that the paper was genuine, said the witness, he would have published it at once and ended the campaign Witness told how Wood called on him the day after his (Wood’s) arrest and talked ranklingly and referred to the big steel bill witness had gotten through congress with a $6 000,000 appropriation in i;. Witness had believed the man was crazy and asked him what he meant. Wood insisted that the witness owned the gun patent, and then witness recollected that he once did own part of a small gun patent, which he had forgotten all about. The chief of engineers had pronounced the gun worthless for fortification, and that had settled that matter. After a long, desultory examination about the ballot box matter the hearing was adjourned until to-morrow. of Pennsylvania^ who spoke to the "ju dietary of the states ’’ Hon. Walter B.

Warn K mc** far Liq mar Separation From BUI Th* Foal’s Cansos His Nj rn. Indianapolis, Feb. 4.—Amos J. Walker, the personal manager of James Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier poet, while here to day, en route for New York, made a statement regarding the causae of the trouble between Nye and Riley. He said: "Everywhere we went I directed that no liquor we sent to Mr. Riley’s room, and bartenders were forbidden to sell him anything. Still he would manage to get whisky. When we reached Louisville he announced that he would not go to Bowling Green. Persuasion had no influence upon him. When told by Mr. Nye that if the engagements for the future were c°^^itjd the reason would have to be given, he replied: ‘I will die in the ditch before I will go a step further. I know the consequences, and I am willing to take them.’ Mr. Nye told him if he was willing to sacrifice everything for a drink of whisky we would quit there, and we did.” Henry Eitel, the poet’s brother-in-law, says the trouble grew out of Riley’s dislike to being continually watched by Manager Walker. «g, j-3.

Sn* New was com- Snprero* Court Decision Thai talai Speaker Heed’* Haling Sprdigfield, 111., Feb. 4.—Speaker Reed is fully upheld by the supreme court of Illinois in his recent ruling. The case in question is that of Launtz vs The People, 113 111., 137, where a city council consisting of eight aldermen and the mayor had before it the approval of a bond, and four aldermen voted for approval and four refused to vote. The msyor counted those present and not voting as voting in the negative, and himself gave the casting vote and is sustained by the supreme court in his action. Although this authority for holding that the rule relating to elections may be different from that applied to other questions, and that a ma jority of those voting would be sufficient on the question of an election yet the effect of the decision of the court is that in all cases where a quorum is present if a majority of those present vote for the proposed measure such vote is sufficient. Says the court: "It is unsound to say that one-half of a representative body, when a casting vote is given to the presiding officer, may defeat a measure by refusing to vote. What reason is there why, when all the eight members are present and four vote and four refuse to vote, the mayor should not vote with one side or the other and make a majority? Why may it not be considered equivalent to a tie, counting the members who do not vote as voting the contrary way from the mayor? This would be fulfilling the purposes of the law. There is no propriety in giving to a refusal to vote more potency than to a vote cast—of allowing a gain from viola Hon of duty, or in making the refusing to vote of more effect in governing the action of the body of which one is a member than voting.” Bunsctaa’t Public Bulimias Special to Th* Havk-Sti. Washington, Feb. 4.—Congressman Gear’s bill introduced in the senate by Wilson, appropriating $100,000 for pub lie building at Burlington, was reported back to the senate to day and placed on the calendar. Ba* Alla’s Axal aa Bam* The beet salve in the world for cuts, bruises, sores, ulcers, salt rheum, fever sores, tetter, chapped hands, chilblains on through to the present time, giving sn interesting history and touching upon its powers. In closing he said: On this centennial of its organization in the city where its earliest jurisdiction was exercised, in the presence of the chief executive, of the heads of our national legislature, of our highest state courts and officers, of citizens representing all the activities of the country, and in the face of the world, we make proffer of this high tribunal as proof of the stability and abiding strength of our free constitutional government.” Hon. Henry Hitchcock then spoke of the powers of the supreme court and those of the constitution. He was followed by Hon. Thomas Semmes, who spoke on the personal character of the chief justices. At the conclusion of this address a brief intermission was taken and then Hon. Edward J. Phelps, of Vermont, delivered a lay address on the "Supreme Court and Sovereignity of the People.” Chief Justice Fuller then introduced Justice Field who responded on behalf of the supreme court. After reviewing the history of the constitution and the supreme court, the justice came down to the present needs of the latter body and said the court should have some relief from the immense burden now cast upon it. This can only be done by legislative action. The justices already do all in their power, for each one examines every case and passes his individual judgment upon it. Up to the middle of the present century the calendar of the court did not average one hundred and forty cases per term, and never amounted at any one term to three hundred cases The calendar of the present term exceeds* one thousand five hundred. In view of this condition of the court—its crowded docket — a multitude of questions is constantly brought before it of the greatest and most extended influence. Surely it has a right to call upon the country to give it assistance and relief. Something must be done in that direction and should be done speedily to prevent delays to suitors now existing. To day justice is as pernicious as to deny it. After this address there was music, following which Rev. Talbot W. Chambers pronounced benediction and ended the literary exercises. The dinner in the celebration of the supreme court centennial was held tonight at the Lenox Lyceum. The banquet hall was a mass of flowers ani vines and presented a beautiful pictuee. The platform table was set for twenty-six persons. It was presided over by President Carter, of the entertainment committee, and among his guests were Chief Justice Fuller, ex-President Cleveland. Matthew Hale, president of the New York State Bar association; Justices Miller, Bradley, Harlan, Field, Blatchford, Gray. Lamar and Brewer; Chauncey M. Depew, Rev William R Huntington, President Coud-ert, of the bar of the city of New York; Senator Evarts, Chief Justice Paxson, of Pennsylvania; Mayor Grant and Preai dent Low, of Columbia college. The menu was an elaborate one. Before it was concluded the ladies began to take their places in the boxes and shortly after ten o’clock the ^airman rapped for order. In the box the third from the right of the stage was Mrs Cleveland accompanied by a party of ladies and gentlemen. 2 Toast to the pres! dent of the United States was drank standing,    after    which Mr. Carter made a brief address. The next toast was the supreme court, and it was responded to by Associate Justice Harlan of the supreme court He began by reference    to the    co-ordinate responsi bility of the lawyers and judges citing that as are the lawyers of a given period so are    the courts before which they appear. If the decisions of the supreme court has been commended in any instance, it must be added that their preparation was preceded and aided of argumenta at its bar of which may be said, what Mr. Justice Butler observed    of    certain judgments of Lord Mansfield, that they were of such transcedent p wer that those who heard them were lost in admiration "at the strength and stretch of human understanding.” Hon. William M. Evarts next spoke. Principal Cr omit Jary Briber Skip* to Mexico. Chicago, Feb. 4 —John Graham, who was indicted, with others, for attempted jury bribing in the Cronin case, has left town. His trial is set for Monday An acquaintance says he has gone to Mexico. His wife said he had gone to Mt. Clemens, Michigan, across the river from Canada His bondsmen profess to have no knowledge of his whereabouts. Lawyer Trude, Graham’s former employer and now his attorney, says he don’t believe Graham skipped, but if he has it is because he doubted the possibility of getting a fair jury on account of adverse criticisms in the Cronin case. Trude insists that Graham is innocent, but that he has an exaggerated dread of being tried by a jury under the present circumstances. States Attorney Longenecker did not seem to fear to-night that Graham would not be on hand. _ A PECULIAR CASE. A. Millionaire Cruelly Deprive* HI* Wife of a Comfortable Maintainable*. Chicago, Feb. 4.—The bill for a separate mtintainance filed by Adelaide M Harding, wife of George F. Harding, the millionaire lawyer, discloses a remarkable domestic history. Mrs. Harding says she was married in 1855 at Peoria Bile and her husband came to Chicago to live in 1863 and have resided here since Until October, 1888, says Mrs Harding, she and husband lived happily together. Then there came a change in his conduct and he began, she said, a course of systematic cruelty. The husband, it is alleged, deprived her of credit at stores add proposed to allow her only $50 a month Since that time Mrs, Harding alleges he has paid her but $350. Among other things, he deprived her of the use of carriages, except at certain, times, discharged the servants from their home on Indiana avenue, and has made a systematic effort to turn the children against her. The complainant says her husband is worth from two to three million dollars and has a net income of from $75,000 to $100,000 per year. She asks the court to compel him to give her a suitable allowance and the custody of the younger children, the older ones to be allowed to decide for themselves with which parent they will live Thx Hawk-Et* Bureau, Capital Building Des Moines, Feb. 4.1890. The democrats made a great attempt to get the republicans to work against the old soldiers this afternoon in the senate. Senator Bolton, democrat, presented the resolutions passed by the G. A R. Poet, at Sibley condemning the action of the senate in electing as officers of the senate civilians as against soldiers, j The resolutions further stated that mem-I bere af the post would teach their children and children’s children to point the | finger of scorn at the senators who took part in such action.” Woolson, himself a G. A. K. man, objected to the resolutions being placed on file and I spread on the journal, and this brought out a great discussion, which ! lasted a full hour. Bolton and Schmidt I were the only democratic speakers and | they warmly advocated the document j being put upon the records while Woolson, Finn, Gatch and Price spoke against lit. The ruling of Lieutenant Governor Hull, that the paper was not a petition or memorial and was not couched in respectful language and had no place on the records, was considered a fair one. Hull himself was a soldier and would do all he could for them, but this paper, as Woolson claimed, did not represent the sentiment of the soldiers and misrepresented the facts and by its reflection upon the members of the senate was a very improper document to be before I them. _ MCMILLAN WINS. Nominated a* Candidate for War don of tA* Ft Madison F«nlt*ntlary. Special to The Ha wk-Et*. Des Moines, Feb. 4 —The republican joint caucus this evening took up the deadlock left over from last week. The first thing done was to put out of the way the nominations for warden of the Anamosa penitentiary, state printer and state binder, and then the warden of the Ft. Madison penitentiary was taken up. The expectation before balloting was that Townsend would carry off the prize on the second or third ballot, but such did not happen. Thirteen ballots were taken last week without any result. to-night’s ballots. The more important ballots taken tonight were as follows: To night’s Ballot.    1    ll    14    16    17    18 Townsend................. 24    24    J:6    35    27    SO Jarvis ....................23    16    16    13    14    7 McMillan.................. 19    16    25    34    37    41 lMckell .................... 6    3 3 ...... Weston.................... 5    I I...... >>rossley..................... I........ Beall......................... a........ At the thirteenth ballot it was decided to drop on succeeding ballots the lowest candidate and this cut off much useless voting. After the fourteenth those re ceiviDg not more than five votes were requested to withdraw    their names and the room was    cleared of save those entitled    to sit in the caucus as members of the legislature, thus making the last two ballots perfectly secret. Senator Woolson moved to make the nomination unanimous on the part of the friends of Townsend and the same carried. The fight was one of the most memorable in the history of the state. McMillan is in receipt of many warm congratulations. WOKE UP THE SENATE. the sentiment is rather otherwise in the reporter’s galleries. We would all prefer a regular session. As it is now, we must be eternally vigilant and be tire that nothing is done or even bought of that is not included in our reports, for the people generally expect us to be thoroughly familiarized with every- j thing that is done, and they want to know all about the prospective movements even before the party leaders have I perfected their Diana This condition of I affaire makes our life one continuous round of activity. Another said: "ll would Ie willing to bet considerable that inside of a week the temporary organization will be made permanent.” Here, too, great ignorance of affairs generally was shown. Not even the democrats themselves would consent to such an arrangement. They like Hotchkiss and know he is a good democrat, but when it comes to putting a man in for permanent speaker he must be a man of higher position in the party council. The majority of the democratic caucus has decided in favor of Hamilton, and it is safe to say there will be no transfer of allegiance. But the republicans would never consent to such an arrangement. In the first place they will I never give the speakership to the democrats. They stand firm in this matter, and there is no use supposing any conditions they would want to impose should they decide to give it up, for such | will not be done. Oui friends from the east must look for some other solution of the deadlock, because the members of both parties are here to stay all summer, rather than yield anything to the other. They are in for it and are here to stay. MONTEZUMA MATTERS. THE TEESIBLE BilLBOAD CALAMITY AT FEOfilA, ILLINOIS.

The action of the board has the hearty commendation of the entire public. G. W.

Fully 80 per cent of the inhabitants of this place have had a tussle with the fashionable disease but only one death to record.

Marshalltown, Iowa, Feb. 4 —Half the regular force of the low* Central shops here have been laid off, while those retained are reduced to three days’ work per week and only eight hours per day As the men are receiving but 18 to 27 cents per hour this means the next thing to starvation, and many who were not discharged will quit and seek other employment. The company claims the cut was made because there is practically no work to do, as the corporation has aban doned the road from Mason City to Lyle, and has been debarred from using the Keithsburg bridge, being in default upon tolls. _ LABOR TROUBLES. I Soma G. A. R. Resolution# Warmly Dleeassed and Finally K«j feted. Des Moines, Feb. 4 —The session of the senate lasted about an hour. After the opening exercises Senator Bolter in-| traduced the resolutions adopted by the G. A. R. post, condemning the action of the senate in electing civilians to the j minor offices in its gift. An objection I was raised to the matter going on file be cause it was in disrespectful language and was not a faithful representation of [the facts. The democrats spoke very | strongly in favor of having the resolutions go on record and the republicans against it. The chair finally ruled that for reasons assigned the paper should not go on file. The senate then adjourned. THE house. When the house met this morning, Holbrook, on behalf of the democrats, presented a proposition asking the republicans to formulate an alternative proposition and the opposition would bind themselves to accept one or the other condition of it. A few quiet speeches were made on both sides and then the roll call on speakership was taken up. After taking four ballots the house adjourned till 10:30 to morrow morning. Caucuses will again be set to [ work on a proposition. WHAT THE DEADLOCK COSTS. Miner* la Michigan Strike for HI suer j Wtgw. Marquette, Mich. Feb. 4.—Saturday! about fifty laborers, employed at the Volunteer mine located at Palmer, struck j for two dollars per day, an advance of | forty    cents    The    company    operating the mine refused the advance and hired new    men    but    the strikers would not    allow    them    to go    to work yesterday, the sheriff with an armed posse    went    to Palmer to    disperse the strikers but did not have enough men with him and returned leaving the strikers masters of the situation. To day the sheriff, after receiving reinforcements from Ishpeming and Negaunee, is onj the ground but the strikers show no) signs of yielding. The sheriff is disinclined to precipitate a crisis and the twoj bodies of men are watching one another sharply. If the new men should go to work bloodshed is likely to ensue. The mine is one that was purchased by General Alger a year ago, and he is the principal stockholder in the company operating it. -The Soma Erronoou* Idea* Corrected Sltaatlon. Special to THI Hawk-By*. Des Moines, Feb. 4 —There is some diversity of opinion in different parts of the state as to the true nature, the ex pense and general surroundings of the interesting condition of affaire prevail ing here in the legislature. In the extreme portions of the state ideas differ, and away from here very erroneous impressions prevail. A great many in all localities seem to think that the members are likely to make money for themselves by prolonging the deadlock, but the sooner they disabuse their minds of this idea the better.

IOWA IS BRIEF. Peoria, 111., Feb. 4.—The terrible cident that happened at the Indianapolis, Bloomingtod and Western bridge last night has created a gloom this city second only to th*t caused terrible Chatsworth disaster. Neville, the engineer, died that was pitiful in the extreme Pinned in the wreck with his head barely above water he suffered told agonies for four hours. Every effort wka made to release him. Alderman Klirney who was present stripped himself of his outer garments and plunged into the water over his head to ascertain what was holding Engineer Neville, while under water he discovered the dead body of Brakeman Lewis and afterwards tied a rope to it. The dead brakeman’s body was lying on the floor of the cab, wedged in near the gang way. and right under the feet of the imprisoned engineer. He evidently tried to escape, but was struck dead before getting out of the cab. It was thought that by pulling out Lewis’ body Neville could be extricated, but this proved impossible Only his left hand could be raised above water. After a great deal: of work the engineer wae raised so that his shoulders were above water, and the hopes cf those who were working for his rescue rose several degrees. The poor man was dinkier fast. Hot water was brought, his head bathed and hot drinks given him, but his vitality was fast giving out. ENGINEER NEVILLES DEATH. The unfortunate engineer was failing fast, but held up as best he could. He saw himself that there was no chance of getting out alive, but be never flinched. His face was aa white as marble, and several times he closed his eyes in deep thought for some minutes. No doubt his thoughts wandered to his pretty little home in Urbana, and his wife and four children who would be wild with grief at the news of his fate. He felt something soft under his feet and told his rescuers that he was standing on his seat cushion. In reality he was standing on the dead body of Brakeman Lewis, but the men kept it from him as long as possible. When he did find it out it unnerved him somewhat. His own son was his regular fireman, but was not with him this trip. About 9 o’clock the poor man became slightly delirious. In his anguish he cried: "Boys, for God’s sake, chop me out. I am standing on my boy.” He soon regained his reason and assumed his stolid manner, hardly ever murmuring even when Buffering gre*t pain The strong men who were straining every nerve to get his out, when they learned that their efforts could do no good, were movad to tears at this hero of modern times. About 9 30 he became quite weak. and ceased conversing with the men altogether. At 9:45 he said faintly : "Boys. I am almost gone.” A moment later his spirit took its flight, and all was over. The men who stood upon the grimy wreck almost held their breath, being completely awed by the death of the unfortunate engineer. He died without a struggle.
