DEATH WON THE VICTOBY AT LAST. Surrounded by His Loved Ones, the Com- moner Passed the Portal and Entered the Undiscovered The Inter- citing Story of 'Bit Life. WASHINGTON, April Samuel Jackson Ronrtall is dead. After a long "nd valiant battle with the death angel the great com- moner peacefully breathed his last at 10.5 a. m., Biiriday, April 13. Interim! cancerwas themal- ady that ended hln career. He was sur- rounded by devot- ed wife and affec- tionate children, his daughters, Mrs. Lancaster and Su- r 7 sonBamuel-in MR i last momenta Mr. 8 AMU KI. j. RAHUAIII Randall to Washington early In November a tick man, but with hopes of improvement. He xipected to be ablu to take his seat in the house when congress met in December. But when convened he was nnable to leave Ma home. Subsequently the oath of office as a representative was administered at residence by Speaker Reed, and Mr. Randall was made a member of the com- mittee on rules and the two important committees he haH served on for so many years. Mr. Randall then hoped to be able to take MR seat and participate ac- tively in tha affairs of the house at the con- clusion of the holiday recess, but the dreaded and fatal malady from which he suffered slowly but surely made inroads on his strength, and each month as it passed found Mm weaker. He wai Slowly Falling. Mr. Carlisle, Ma atrcociate on the commit- tee of rules, and Democratic members of the committee and other Demo- cratic Hves called fre- quently at Mr Randall's home tc oonimlt him about party matters anc committee work Borne of them whc called occasional- ly, but regularly noticed that Mr Randall was slow ly failing physical ly, although men tally he was ai acute and vigorous j 1 as ever; and foi the past twt months they felt that would nev- er leave bis house alive. During thei .last few weeks of his life Mr. Ran. dall suffered very much at times and he had become greatly emaciated. His devoted wife and children were untiring in all their attentions through MR sickness, and his friends in (and he hud a host of them of both, political faiths) contributed much toward MR comfort by frequent frinndly visits. His T.ngt Look of Love. During his last hours MR wife and family were constantly at his bedside. Mr. Ran- dall was unconscious at times during the last day or two of his life, and was speech- less toward the end. To Mrs. Randall he Rmiled a last fond, look of recognition a half hour before bis death. The funeral will tat e place here on Thurs- day morning. The arrangements will be in charge of a congressional committee to be appointed today. Mrs. Randall prefers that tha, services be held in the Metropolitan Presbyterian church, of which Mr. Randal] was a member, and not in the house of re- presentatives. After the funeral- the funeral parly will a special train over the Pennsylvania railroad to Phila- delphia, where the interuieut will take place in the Randall family- vault in- Hill cemetery. TUB StOr, of T.lfe. Samuel Jackson Randall was bom in Philadelphia, Oct. 10, 1828, and MR career through life justifies the -werUon ha was bora a statesman. He received a good academic education and pursued his studies with the intention of devoting Ma life to mercantile pui suits. After he had finished his studies he obtained a position f the vexed question which agitated tha country. He was re-elected speaker for the two [olloiring terms, serving in that position until March 3, 18sl, when the Republicans took the houso for a term When the Dem- ocrats agaiu obtained control of the house divisions m that party on the revenue Rsues led to his defeat for the speakership and to the election of John 6. Carlisle. But Wr. Randall always retained the command- ng position his talents had him and grew in reputation. As speaker he was not %nder in the administration of his office. 3e was a commander and ruled the house with a heavy hand. Prom the first Mr. all was recognition congress as 6 power, and finally he ths recognized [eader of his party His High Tariff Attitude. He served in turn on all the iiiijiort-ant committees the committee on rules, on banking, on elections and on approp nations, of which latter committee he was the chair- man and dominating spirit when his party was in power. For the past few years stand which Mr. Ran Hall had assumed on the tariff question gradually alienated him from the majority of his party, both state and national; and although no man im- peached Ma fidelity or sincerity to the prin- ciples oi democracy, this separation from MR associates had undoubtedly greatly weighed upon his mmd, and added to the other drains upon his physical system. In appaarance Mr. Randall was what might be nailed a peculiar His countenance was rather boyish, but singularly winning and attractive. His feet and hands were imall and shapaly, but ha had a way of drawing up hi J left shoulder that made one of his arms appear longer than the other. In walking he stepped out briskly, with shoulders a little stooped, and a gait ttyit was rather shambling But though his en- semble was striking, his dress added to the oddity of his appearance For more than twenty-flve years he wore the same style of clothing, and no one ever seemed to have seen him in a new suit of clothes. A cut- away coat thrown loosely back, baggy trousers a trtfld bunchy at the knees, and a low cut vest, all with a tinge of age about them; immaculate linen, broad comfortable shoes, and a remarkable hat completed MR attire. He Died a Poor Man. Mr. Randall was a poor man. He was twenty-eight years a member of the house yet no one has ever been found to reflect even in the slightest degree upon his integ- rity or honesty. Ha was probably poorer in purse whan he died than when he came Washington away back m the Thirty- eighth congress. He owued the modest residence in which he lived on Capitol hill. It is situated on C street and is not worth more than The modest dwelling represents the savings nearly half a life time. He made very little money outside of MR salary, and, indeed, had very little time to spare from M-t public duties. Proof Agalnat the Lobby's The stories gleaned from the lobby as to unsuccessful attempts upon his virtue as a legislator are only unparalleled by the stories told by friends as to the unyield- ing front which he always presented to petition of friendship when it ran counter to h is sense of public duty. A lawy er who was his tells that he carried f 000 in MR pockets for months, having under- taken to give it to Randall as a retainer in behalf of a certain corporation, but could nwer muster the courage to give it to him or even broach the subject. On one occa- sion a wealthy blanket manufacturer, know- ing that Randall was a poor man, and hav- ing a profound admiration for him, sent him a check for saying that as an old friend and constituent he believed it his duty and privilege to make this subscription to help pay MR election expenses. The check was promptly returned with a letter so curt that it would have morally offended any one who did not allowance for fUndall's infii niily of temper in this respect. When asked once if he did not carry his independ- ence or indifference in such matters to an BTtreme, he replied: "No, there is no middle ground in such matters. I draw the line at the beginning." comparative poverty is a monument to his sterling integrity. Mr. Randall scorned a publio man who appointed any of bis owu .Natives to office. His brother wanted a European consulship, and he could have secured it for him, for he was close to the administration at the time. But Mr. Randall sturdily refused and did the same thing with other relatives. At the Rame time no man was more loyal to hi; friends than he. His Remarkable Reticence. One of Mr. Randall's peculiarities his remarkable reticence about and his affairs. About twelve years ago, when name first began to be prominently men- tioned in connection with the presidential nominntlou of the Democratic parly, a well known newspaper who wanted to compile Mi was sur- prised to And no published data available. He sought Mr. Randall and asked hln) for some of the details of his early life, telling him the purpose for which he desire udall told him, in his blunt w ay, thathejrould find Ml that worth Mow- ing'abouVWjn in the coogr.' direc- tory.

The Captain Left the Steamer to Taki Care of Herself and She Collided wltb the Span of tt Drawbridge Orayglng the River for Budlos. SAGINAW, Mich, April steamer Handy Boy, of the Bay line, plying between here and Bay City, on the Saglnaw river, left h. r dock at noon 8unday with ,bout thlity passengers. Just before the draw of the Flint and Pere Marquette bridge was reached, the draw b.nng open, the steamer sheered sharply to port and plunged into one of the spans with a ter- rific crash, carrying away her entire upper works and sweeping the passengers into the river. Six were Drowaed. Some of tho passengers were picked up by fishermen, who found them clinging to parts of the wreck. How many were lost it is impossible to say at present, but statements from passengers aboard confirm the believe that at least six persons were four women and two men Among them is MIRS Ma.iy Height MiRs Catherine Nevin, both of this city. Tngs have been at work ever since dragging the river, but no bodies have yet boen re- covered. The water is high, the current swift and a strong north wind has boon blowing all, the afternoon. Capt H J. Dolsen had charge of the boat, but he was not at the helm at the time of the accident, he being engaged in collecting fares. The Cause of the Accident. The cause of the accident was either to carelessness of the helmsman or the refusal of the steamer to ausnfer her helm, but it is asserted by some that the helmsman who was a deckhand or a stranger, it is not known the eigual to go ahead instead of back, as he intended, aud lost his head as he saw the steamer i unning so rap- idly with the current and bearing upon the bridge. Capt. UoHen Buns Awar. Capt Dolsen, it is said, did not remain at the scene of the accident more than a few moments after it occurred and was tfiXm going across the bridge to the east side, where he disappeared. The engineer, George Little, was arrested and locked up and officers are searching for the members of the crew. There is intense excitement in the city and all are eager to learn if they had friends on board the ill fated steamer, Mrs. Nevin was the mother of the Rev. Frank Nevin, of Detroit. Two Fatal PHII ADELPHTA, April were two colliRions on the Pennsylvania railroad Sunday afternoon, two men being killed, two seriously and another badly injured. The first collision occurred on the New York branch near Rridge avenue station, at about 2 o'clock, where two freight trains collided by reason of a wrong Rigiial being displayed. In this accident one engine was wrecked and the engineer, Richard Seal, killed, all the rest of the crew escaping. A more serious wreck occurred three hours later on the Delaware extension of the Pennflylvania railroad at Hamburg station, where the fireman of the engine was killed, the engineer was "seriously and perhaps fatally Injured, one brakriman wan danger- ously hurt and another badly injured, but will probably recover. The two men who were injured were taken to the Presbyterian hospital; one, Hugh Joy, unconscious and the other, George W.

He asserts that he has not used money of the corporation to further Mi owm political schamaR, and Insists that a full quiry into the matter shall be made and the results given to the public. Hnntingtoa is severely censured by MR associates for talk- ing so frooly. They claim he It injuring the financial welfare of the road. The opinion of prominent officers of f he company IB that the directors will make the investigation demanded by Stanford and that the result will be a vindication of the senator.
