night that the nttcndlng physicians
understood that the end could not ho
far off anil all tho bulletin sent out
from tho nick room wore to IIiIh ef
fect ho that the family ami friends
wore prepared when the Dual blow
came The grndunl falling of the re
inarkablo strength Hhown by the pa
tient became more noticeable In tho
nfternoon iifcd a few moment before
the end there was an apparent break
down on the part of the sufferer as
lio surrendered to the disease against
which he had been ho bravely battling
for so many hours The change was
noticed by the physicians and the rol
ntlvos and friends who had retired
from the sick room to the library be
low were quickly Kununonoil aid
reached the bedside of the general
before lie passed awny
News of the death Npread quickly
throughout the city The word was
Hashed from tho bullettns of all tiie
newspapers mid thus communicated
to the people on their way home in
the evening The announcement
caused tho greatest sorrow nearly
every one having nurtured the hope
that General Harrison would recover

the public buildings and most of the
downtown business blocks were
hoisted nt half mast and other out
ward manifestations of mourning
were made
None of General Harrisons children

tively how ninny of them will come

I Sympathized With the lloei s
From ono who was present at the
deathbed It is learned that the allega
tions of cruelty and Injustice dealt
out by England to tho Boers In their
struggle for liberty had been a subject
for thought in the mind of General
Harrison To his friends ho had
often 6poken of the pity ami shame
as bo viewed It that tho bravo and
sturdy fanners of South Africa should
be robbed of their country of all they
bnve In tho world and forced to sub
mit to terrible miseries In resisting
tho oppressions of a world power
Geucral Harrison It Is Rtated would
bnve liked nothing better than to come
out frankly and strongly say to every
ono whnt he thought of Englands
cruelty It was Iu his mind constant
ly but ho believed an ex president
should observe the same proprieties
of speech which are observed by a
president of tho United States In
his semi conscious conditions when
tho sentinels of discretion nnd
propriety had gone from their posts
nnd tho mind of tho man was wander
ing ho began to speak of the Boers
and their boneless struggle for na
tional life Ills voice was weak and
trembling his thoughts were not con
nected but tho listeners bending over
1ilm could hear words of pity for tha
dying former republic
runner Attorney irurrat Miller Tribute
The following tribute to the memory
of General Harrison Is from the pen
of ox Attorney General W II II Mil
ler who was so closely associated
with thu late ex presldent In his offi
cial professional and social life
General Harrison was a man of the
highest Intellectuality of grent will
power of tireless Industry with n
renins for details and all his facul
ties were under the guidance of a
conscience that never slept He be
lieved In the right as a ruling prin
ciple among nations In statesman
ship and in politics no less than In
business and social life He recog
nized tho necessity and usefulness of
political purl lea hut as moans to an
end not as the end In themselves
Hence In his administration
ns president the llrst consideration
was Ids country the Kopubllcun party
was a consideration but It was be
cause ho believed Its policies most
helpful to the country In the distri
bution of patronage for Instance the
llrst the essential thing was Illness
Without this qualification tin ap
pointment was knowingly made
Legitimate party service while not
lightly esteemed was secondary As
to federal Judges of whom he ap
pointed nearly 50 he was wont to
any that they wore no mans patron
age that they would continue In tint
service of the country longer than
presidents or senators He bowed to
the limitations of the constitution
nnd the laws binding alike upon pres
ident and citizen He respected tho
bounds of the throe great departments
of the government and neither sought
undue Influence In congress and tho
Judiciary nor suffered such undue In
fluence to be exercised by them Iu the
executive department

weeks causing a jump of ten points
In tho price were taken for the Union

The closer relations which will fol
low iMtween tiie Union Paclllc and
Hurllngton are only loss Important
than the purchase of the Southern Pa
cific by the Union Pacific The Hur
llngton was the company which was
most to be feared by tho Union Pa
clllc In transcontinental territory the
latter reaching out Into Wyoming and
Colorado and threatening to build au
Independent Hue of its own to the Pa
clllc coast
Such a road would necessarily par
allel the Union Pacific to a great de
gree ami there Is reason to believe
that the Hurllngton people were lend
ing aid to some of the recently Incor
porated companies notably that pro
moted by Senator William A Clark
from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles
The Union Pacifics purchases are

Iludley of Yale university whose pre

in Boston last Sunday that there will

years unless a public sentiment ena
ble of controlling the trusts Is aroused
is quoted iu a special to the World
from Boston as saying
The comments of the papers evi
dently have been based ou a misrep
resentation of tho facts They seem
to have assumed that I spoke on trusts
whereas my address was not ou trusts
but on public conscience uiy roferenco
to trusts being Incidental aud of the
most causal character
I do not mean that tho trusts will
create an emperor What I said was
that nn aroused public opinion is the
only thing that can control the trusts
and without that public opinion we
shall have nn emperor
The possibility of nn emperor sit
ting in Washington was mentioned
not as a probable contingency but
as an absolutely inadmissible one
