He Waft Well Equipped to Represent Thin Country At the French Capital Hon. James B. Eustis, ambassador to France under Cleveland's adtmnistra- .ion, died at Newport, R. L, on Satur- !ay, of pneumonia. Mr. Eustis was HOU. JAMES B. EUS1TS. Mrn in New Orleans, La., August 27, 834. He received a classical educa- ion and attended the Harvard Law chool in 1853 and 1854. He was ad- mitted to the bar in 1856 and practised n New Orleans. At the commence- ment of hostilities between the north nd south he entered the Confederate irvice as judge advocate on the staff f General Magruder and after one ear's service was transferred to the taff of Gen. Joe Johnston, with whom e served until the close of the war. Mr. Enstis.like many another south- rn gentleman, went back to his home n New Orleans to find everything hanged by the war, the fortunes of is family included. As soon as things ere straightened out after the war Mr. Eustis went back to his profes- ional work with his old zest and with ew success. Always a lover of books, e took his recreation in his library, inong other things translating Gui- ot's ''History of Civilization" into Inglish. He also yielded to an invita- ion to go into politics In 1874 he 'as elected to the state senate for four ears. His next jump was to the nited States senate, to which he was lected in )885. In the senate, Sena- or Eustis, with characteristic frank- ess and boldness, stood up for what e regarded as Democratic principles. Vlr. Eustis was recognized as one of 3e most eloquent orators in the sen- te, the senators basing their high stimate of his oratory not so much on peeches he made in open session as pon those he made in executive ses- ion. naturally enough, be best speech he ever made was lade in executive session during the 'anama canal discussion and was a eu- ogy on France. When it devolved upon Mr. Cleveland o appoint an ambassador to France in 893 he needed no one to tell him that tfr. Eustis was the man of all men for he place. When the time came, with- ut so far as is known a word of sug- estion from any one, he made up his lind to appoint him and offered him be post in the most complimentary lanner. That his choice was a wise ne was proven by his ministry in 'ranee, for no man, it is safe to say, as ever been sent abroad by the Jnited States who was so well equip- ed personally and by acquaintance vith public men and affairs, not only f the country to which he was ae- redited, but of neighboring countries. He not only knew the language, the iterature, the history and the public men of France, but the state secrets of ler government and the intimate jossip of her society. He knew France uch better than most of our repre- entatives at the court of St. James ave known England. Mr. Eustis believed in rotation in of ice and that it is the duty of a presi .ent to fill the publicoffices with mem- sers of his own party. Less than two months after Mr. Cleveland had enter- ed the White House.in 1S85, Mr. Eustis, hen a senator, authorized a statement severely criticising the administration, .vhich was widely quoted. In personal Mr. Eustis had more than his share of the gift of the gods. He vas finely built and possessed a hand some, honest face. He was democratic n his manners, courteous and consid- erate of every one he met, without either arrogance or condescension. The P. M. B Again to the Front.
