fREAT SHOCK TO ALL
The Death of Ex-President
Rutherford B, Hayes.
SICK SINCE SATURDAY.

Sudden Death Surprises
the Whole Nation.
A Nations Sorrows.
Es President Rutherford B. Hayes
died suddenly at Frem ont, Ohio
at 11 o'clock Tuesday night, but the
information of his Aeath was not
known till some time later. The
early report ot the condition of the
ex-president, that he was improv
ing nicely and resting easily allay
ed Buspiction, so the sudden an
nouncement by Webb Hayes that
his father had just died proved a
shock to all. From Mr. Hayes it is
learned that the condition of his
father took a sudden change early
in the evening and rapid dissolu
Fx-President Hayes left home
last Monday on a trip to Colum
bus, Buffalo and Cleveland. At the
last named place he spent a few
days with his son, Webb C. Hayes.
During the last month the ex-presi
dent had complained of one or two
slight attacks of neuralgia of the
heart, but as they soon passed
away he thought nothing of it.
On Saturday he experienced a
Bevere recurrence of the malady,
but, being prepared for his return
home, proceeded on his journey,
accompanied by his son Webb.
Word had been sent home by tele
graph of the condition of the gen
eral, and he was met at the train
by his son Rutherford B. Hayes,
and Dr. K. S. Hilbisch, the family
physician, with a carriage. Kuter-
ing the carriage, they were driven
to the Hayes mansion, in Spiegal
grove, where all attention was giv
en the stricken general during the
night. Sunday the Hayes niau
sion was kept quite and Dr. Hil
bisch spent most of the day in
watching at the bedside. The doc
tor said that the ex-president had
been suffering frem a severe attack
of heart neuralgia, or angina pre-
tons, which he had received while
at Cleveland, and that though he
rallied somewhat, he was not outjof
danger. Today there was apparent
ly no change, and the death of the
ex-president, when it came, was a
Rutherford Bir:hard Hayes nine
teenth president of the United
States, was born in Delaware, Ohio
October 4th 1S22. He studied law
at Middleton, Conn., and commenc
ed practice in Fremont. In 184'. he
moved to Cincinnati and soon had
a remunerative practice. In IStH he
abondoned thepracticof his profes
sion and entered the army as major
of the Twenty-third Ohio volunteers
For his gallant services at the bat
tle of Winchester he was breyetted
major generrl. Mr. Hayes' war re
cord made him very popular in
Ohio and while still in the army he
was elected to congress from the
Second district, but refused to take
his eeat until the war should be
ended. He was elected in lS'Ki and
served one term, when lie was elect
ed governor of Ohio. He was elect
ed for the third time in 1S75 and
while occupying this phue was
nominated by the republican party
in 1S70 as its caedidate for president
of the United States. The contest
was severe and close after the elec
tion disputes arose as to the electo
ral votes of the of several states
Die dispute was finally referred to
a commission of five senators, five
representatives and five judges
ot the supreme court of the United
States. The commission decided
by a vote of eight to seven that the
electoral votes of the disputed
states should be given to Hayes
