The Statesman's Life Ended After a Long and Heroic Straggle, PATHETIC SCENES AT THE DEATHBED H 1th the Cfinlug or Dawn the Statesman's Life Got* Out-Paiftiog Away With the Word "Mother" Upon His Lips-Ha Had ISeen Steadily Sinking Daring the Night -Funeral on Thursday. WAsniNCTOs, April 13.-Samuel 3. Ruudall died at rive o'clock this morniug. It was a sad aud touohiug scene at the Randall residence on Capitol Hill when Congressman Samuel J. Raudull expired this morning. Just as the bells of a neighboring oLarub were tolling five o'clock, around the bedside were gathered the family, tbe physician and Postmaster-General Wanamaker, who bad all kept a constant watch over the dying man during tbe night. A few moments before his death he had opened his eyes and lookiug ter.de.rly at his wife who knelt over him faid in a low tone: "Mother," a word instinct with all tbe fondest recolIeotionB of their long and happy married life, and by which he always called his wife when none but the family were near. He looked into her oyes as if he were about to say something more, but he Beemed to have no strength left, and in a few moments bo had passed away. the end comes with dawn. Death had come with tbe coming of tbe dawn. The watchers saw that all was over and the brave wife and daughter who nursec and cared for him during biB long illness, could restrain their feeliugs no longer, but gave way to tbeir grief, while the physicians and Mr. Wanamaker endeavored to console them as best they might, though tbeir own grief hardly per mitted them to speak. Mr. Randall's death had been expected at any time during the past three days, aud his family and friends knew that be could not last much longer. The physicians had informed the family that death might come almost any hour, and last night tbey told Mrs. Randall tbat his enduranco could not hold his life throughout another day. Friday night had been a bad one for tbe sick man, and be bad several sinkiug spells from which he rallied to the astonishment of bis physicians, ^fcese, however, left him weaker, and when morning came it was evident that hiB extraordinary vitality had almost left him. He rested easy and comfortable during the forepart of the day, and the doctor was encouraged to hope that he might live several days yet, He took some nourishment and dozed off without any difficulty. Shortly after 3 o'clock, however, a marked change was noticod in hie appearance, and be seemed almost to sink away. This spell was worse than any of the preceding ones, aud it was thought that the end was at hand. All the members of the family were present, and also Dr. Mallan. summoned to. the bedside. Dr. Lincoln, the coi>sukiog physician, and Postmaster General Wanamaker were hastily summoned. Tbey remained around the bedside expecting each momeut would be the last, until G o'clock, when he rallied somewhat from the state of collapse. It left him with very little strength remain lug, and Dr. Mallan became convinced that bo could not live throughout tbe night. Dr. Lincoln left shortly after 6 o'clock, but the others remained with the sick man. There .was little or uu change up to midnight, eicept tbat ho wa8 steadily giowiug weaker. Youog Sammy Randall went to a neighbor's house to bleep, but was hastily summoned about 3 o'clock in tho morning when the doctor informed the family that .Mr. Randall could not live through the night He was in a utate of semi-uuoonsoionsness most of the time. bally and the end. About three o'olock be bad another sinking spell, and afterwards bis mind became more clear aud bright. The sick man lay in tbe front room of tbe second story of his modest bomo, and daylight was just beginning to shed its rayB into the sick room when Sir. Randall opened his eyes aud looked tenderly at his wife who bent over him to cateb his words He recognized her and in a half whisper said simply, "Mother." He then closed his eyes an^sank away, death coming from exhaustion. As tbe bells of a nearby church rang the hour of-five to call worshippers to early mass be was dead. Around him were Mrs. Randall, Miss Susan Randall, Mrs. Lancaster, Robt rt E, Randall, tbe married daughter and her husband, Samuel Randall, Jr., Dr. Mallan, Postmaster General Wanamaker and tho household-servants. For a moment the family hardly realized tbat all was over but then as the fact that ho was dead broke upon them they gave way to their grief and burst iuto tears. mh. kandall's illness. Randall's illuess dates back five years, when be was treated for tbe gout. July 9th, almost two years ago, Mr. Randall was suddenly seized with a violent diarrhoea aud hemmorage during the night, due to hastily ealiug a dl�h of Ice cream aud berries during tho day. Tbishcmmorr bage was so severe as to completely prostrate him, .and his life was in imminent danger. Previous to this Mr. Ran. dall bad been troubled with what was supposed to be hemorrhoids. The diarrhea attack caused the disease to assume an aotive form, and ic was found that be wassufferiug from an extensive aud malig: nant aboess. This caused serious hemorrhages, wbicb freely- depleted bis system and left him weak and emaolated. He put himself permanently under tbe physician's dare, and Dr. Mallan has attended him constantly while he was in this city. Mr. Randall grew strouger and was getting fairly well until last February, when he bad a severe rigor brought on probably by the weather. This rigor was accompanied by severe adomioal pains, and there were symptoms of peritouitis. From this time cxbaustion set in and the siok mau's course was downward. Septisma was also present, and a chill and severe diarrhoea about two weeks ago brought tbe oase to a critical stage. his strong will tower. Up to a short time ago Mr. Randall had_ confidence in his ability to pull through; with his Biokuess, and told a congressional visitor tbat he thought he was mending and that be would be able to rename bis congressional duties. He joined the Presbyterian cburoh about two months ago. Mr. Wanamaker spoke to bim on this subject, a~id Mr. Randall replied that he had been thinking of tbe matter for sorfce time, and would like to become a member of the cburcb. Arrangements were effected by which be entered the Metropolitan Presbyterian church on Capitol hill." Dr. Chester is tbe pastor, a ad will probably conduct tbe funeral services in this city. profodnd soruow. The news of Mr. Randall's death be-aame quite generally known during the day. A large number of persons called at tbe residence during the day to express their condolences. The President and Mrs. Uarrieon sent a basket of flowers witb a note expressing their deep sympathy with tbe family. Sergeant-at-Arms Holmes called and took oharge of the remains for tbe House of Representatives. Tbey were embalmed and placed in a casket in the room in whioh Mr. Raudall died. It is said that Mr. Randall presents a life-like appearance except tbat he is emaciated aud wasted to a remarkable degree Up to a lata hour this afternoon no definite arrangements for the funeral bad been decided upon, but it is probable that tbe interment will take plaoe in Laurel Hill cemetery, Philadelphia. funeral arrangements. To night Mr. Wanamaker said that tho funeral had been fixed for Thursday morning. The fuueral wdl be iu charge of tbe Congressional committee to be appointed to morrow morniug. Mrs Randall prefers that the services be bold in tbe church of which Mr. Randall was a member and not in tbe House ot Representatives. Thisohurch is the Metropolitan Presbyterian, Dr. Chestor, pastor. Nine or t  Ing the battle of Gettysburg his rank waa that of provost marnbal of Columbia He eutered the Thirty eighth cougress in December, 18G3, and bas kept his seat iu tbe House of Representatives ever sinoe. He has served in the committees on public buildings atid grounds, bauking and currency, retrenchment and expenditure, i.i the stalo department, Ho was a ready, oouc'iso speaker, wUhout rhetorical affectations. He was eloctcd speaker in 1870 and held the position until the election of (i. , W. Eeifer.  He was ever an outspoken advocate of a jiidieionuly adjusted protective tariff, and never wavered from his position, except when Vonopoly and not protection was the ohjcot sought to.be attain ed. The free trade papers were unanimous iu tbeir antagouism to bis candidacy for speaker of tbe tForty-eighth congress, and Carlisle, of Kentucky, was chosen to tbe position. In the early part of 1883 Mr. Randall made ja tour of the south and was received with rouoh enthusiasm. Without beiug * particularly scholarly man or a finished orator, Mr, Randall was a most powerful figure in American polities of tbe period. Differing from a majority of his party on one subjeot that has been an issue of very recent years, he was not an acknowledged leader, yet during the past three sessions tbat tbe leadership was elsewhere there were times when tbe party turned to him as the man best fitted to fight their difficult battles. There was probably no other man from whom a few words had such aa influence in the House in relation to fiscal affairs, aud in a parliamentary struggle he always arose above the whole House. When deeply in earnest on any subject he attained tbe proportions of a giant, and with heavy blows dealt on either band he brushed the hundred and one smaller men of trie House out of his path. As bead of the,' appropriations committee and possessing wider knowledge of fisical affairs thau any other man in the house, be practically controlled tbe appropriations for the ' entire government. Through him tbe policy qf " retrenchment aud reform " became an attribute of the democratic party, and it was this battle ery that drew support to the party and brought it from the obscurity of defeat in which it grjped for years after the war. Whatever bitterness may have arisen from the difference of opinion on the tariff question, Uie ablest of tbe tariff reformers always respected the iron-nerved : giant of Pennsylvania as one of tbe most powerful men in the party. He has stood for years, extending back into the time when tbe party was weak and disorganized, aa tbe champion of individual rights, and of honest and economical administration of tbe government. He bas been not only the watch dog of tbe treasury, but he has been the guard-* at times almost the lone guard-of the party organization. He was undoubtedly one of tbe greatest men in his party. They have, perhaps, had no other man before the public, except Tilden and Cleveland, of equal strength of character and determination with htm. He was a practical rather than a theoretical defender of the constitution. He resisted all encroaoh-medts of the individual's rights and was tbe enemy of all. jobs and schemes to in* volve tbe government outsido of itsproper functions. In 1880 Mr. Randall's name first became prominently considered as a desirable democratic candidate for tbe presidency of the United States. He bad been the four immediately preceding years close in the counsel of Samuel J. Tilden, and beliflving tbat the sage of Greystone was unjustly deprived of tbe presidencey in 1377, he was an unwavering supporter of his claims to renomination. Occupying that attitude, he resolutely declined to have bis own name canvassed, and, in the opinion of many of his friends, carried his loyalty to Mr. Tilden to tbe verge of ruthless self-sacrifice. In June, 1880, he actually went to tbe national democratic convention to lead tbe advocates of "the old ticket." The convention met in Cincinnati. Mr, Randall's hoadquarters were at the St. Nicholas hotel. There he was waited upon by scores of influential delegates and other party leaders, who begged that he would drop Tildeu and enter the list himself. The overtures were firmly and even im-impatiently rejected, but they were renewed with fresh force when Mr. Tilden telegraphed a decliuation of renomination. Confusion followed this declination, and it is probable that Randall is tbe ouly man who could have held tbe Tilden phalanx together. An attempt was made to consolidate on Payne, but it was a failure. Too late, but even then against bis wishes, tbe name of Randall was thrown into the convention. Hanoock was the nominee, but Randall, without organization or Beri-ous effort on the part of bis friends, polled over 100 votes. He waa a man of the greatest simplcity in bis mode of life, who clung to his borne associations and cared nothing for display. Tbe extent of bis possessions is represented in tho very plain home he owned on C street, near first on Capitol Hilt. It is an ordinary fiat front bouse witb two or three white marble steps at the front door, and with plain white oopings. It is one of a row which would rent for perhaps $33 or (40. It is a neat,- unpretentious home, such as might be tbat of a department olerk.__ Th e Timber Market. Toero has been a genera! dullness in the timber market for several days aud as a conseqence but lew rafts bave obanged hands. There were a number of rafts came in yesterday, beiug mostly from tbe bead of the river and of better quality; The timber buyers are here aud there is a probability that a considerable nnntbsr of rafts will be sold to-day. Messrs. Bick-ford & McCormick bave purchased upwards of seventy five rafts, which will be taken np the canal and sawed on tbeir mill. A fleet of eleven rafts was started out of the dam yesterday evening for Lewisburg. The river is in fairly good running condition from this plaoe, but is low at Clearfield. Discovery of Urest Mineral Wealth. Chicago, April 13.-A Denver special says: Harry MoDonald deserted Colonel Stanton's exploring party in the Grand canon of tbe Colorado river Because of important mineral discoveries McDonald organized a party of prospectors who are now iu tbe eannon. Colonel Stanton says that tbe four hundred miles of theoauon tbat he saw Is a wealth of preoious metals. Quartz and placer gold were found nearly the entire length of the river. How Did It Oet There. Mr. John Fortney, of Mackeyville, was was in the city yesterday and related tbe following. On Eaater Day one of hie children was about to eat a hard boiled egg, and bad broken the shell for tbat purpose. Imbedded in tbe white part of tbe egg was found a whole grain of corn. Tbe kernel had sprouted, and an embryo stock of corn an inch long protruded from tbe grain. How the grain of corn got into the egg iB puzzling Mr. Fortuey's brain at present.   Who can explain it?

Tbe tree struck bim on the bead and injured him severely. Mrs. Richardson received a telegram Saturday morning advising her to go to tbe place where Mr. Riobardson was. Log Drivers loioxed. Charles Leaves, a log driver, was injured so badly by falling in among a jam of saw logs at Hammerslys Fork, last Friday night, tbat be is not expeoted to reoover.

The Canies That Have Produced Them- Taxation Not Responsible. Tbe following article was prepared by a prominent official of Pennsylvania in answer to the several questions propounded by the Secretary of the Kansas State Board of Agriculture. The auswers are brief, but they seem to go to the very root of tbe trouble now upon us. They are well worth reading. 1. What, in your judgment, is tbe chief oause of tbe low price of farm products? Answer: Primarily, over production; tbe price of our products is fixed by the European demand; within the past few years and notably since tbe opening of the Suez Canal', we have to compete witb tbe cheap lands and Iaboi of India iu the production of wheat; we cannot, with our present farm wages and the present prioe of our farm lands, oarry on this competi tioa successfully and are being driven to the wall. 2. What is tbe second io importance ? Answer: To the Eastern farmer the second item of importance is tbe low rate of freight from tbe West which puts Dakota wheat on shipboard in New York at a cost of twenty-eight cents- per bushel for freight and twenty cents per bushel for production, against wheat produced on my farm within one hundred and twenty-five miles of New York at a cost of seventy-five cents per bushel and eleven cents added for freight on the Bame vessel. 3. What, in your judgment, is the remedy ? Answer: If, as wo have- assumed, the trouble is due to over-produotion, we can find relief in one or more of three ways: 1st, by decreasing the supply; 2nd, by increasing consumption, aad 3d, by decreasing the cost of production. Over tbo first we bave little or no control for the entire stoppage of all our surplus wheat would do but little to affect tbe European market or our prices, and this slight effect wonld last but a few years at best, or until more oheap India and Russian wheat land is planted with wheat; by the enlargement of local manufaotnes we may not only increase the production of wheat, but we may also produce a home market for the many produots not now worth shipment to a more distant market; by producing more per acre we may decrease tbe cost, and thus enable us to more olosely compete with our new rivals in the European market. 4. Is it to be bad through legislation ? If so, what legislation ? Answer *. Tbe laws of supply and demand are above and superior to legislation, and if we are over-produsing, I am unable to see bow legislation can benefit us except it be of such a nature as will increase consumption at home; tbe freight across tbe ocean is so low that even if we consumed all tbat we produced, the surplus of tbe European market would act as a balance wheel in keeping down our prices. If by any olass of legislation we oould for six montbs maintain tbe prioe of wheat at one dollar and one-half at New York, we would soon find our market supplied with wheat from India via Suez canal, and our market thus regulated. Taxation is not alone responsible for the trouble, for if farmers wen entirely relieved from taxes they still could not compete, at present prices, in the world's markets, nor oan trusts, etc., be the cause, for they sffeot neither supply nor demand. The tariff is not responsible, for we do not import grain a b^|l^er. During the struggle with her assailants three of her ribs, were broken.
