LAST nouns.
Niiw YOKK , Oct. 10. Soon after o'clock
p. m. yesterday Cardinal MeCloskey sank Into
unconsciousness , and so continued through
the evening. The gravest apprehensions
were based on tills fact , and Monslgnor Kar-
ley , Father I > oiibresse , nnd Mrs. John Kelly ,
who was nt her home , were hurriedly sum
moned to the cardinal's house and bedside.
About 10 o'clock those gathered about
the bedside of ( lie sick man were of
the firm belief that the cardinal never
after would regain consciousness. The cai-
dlimrs nephew had been sent for , he being In
Philadelphia. Tor some hours prior to his
loss of consciousness the cardinal had taken
no nourishment , and those who watched felt
that all that now that was left was tlie iuev ta
bte , and speedy exhaustion of the unsupported
vital forces. Hov. Father Doucey came hur
riedly soon after 10 o'clock and jo ned the
group of watching friends. It was yet thought
that dissolution might , be distant yet from
ten to twelve hours , but this was not to be.
About midnight the lights began ( lashing
from various rooms In the cardinal's bouse ,
and to the groups waiting outside there
came thoeoubelonsncss tliat tlie unusual ac
tivity inside was indicative of the approach
of the closing scenes.
At 120 : nervous twitching of the muscles
of the dying man's face was observed , and
the household diew nearer. The doctor bent
by the bedside nnd constantly felt
the rapidly flickering pulse. The Hcverend
Monseigiicurs prayed fervently and repeated
Invocation for the dying. At half past twelve ,
and tlie scene was one simply of waiting.
On one side of the bed were the cardinal's
nieces , Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Cleary , nud on
the other side was Miss McCloskey and Miss
Mullen , the latter another niece , lieliind
them and standing almost In n circle , were
Moiisigueurs Farley , Preston and Quinn ,
Archbishop Corrigan , Dr. McDonald , Father
Donbresse and the assistant priests attached
to the cathedral , reciting prayers for the
dying. Dr. Keyes at the head of the bed ,
anxiously watched the ebbing of his patient ,
who , though unconscious , still held in his
hand a crucifix , the emblem of his faith.
Atl2iO : , the end came and so peacefully
nnd painlessly that tlio.ie who watched scarce
ly know that. Hie great change had come , un
til Dr. Keys signified that all was over and
that the cardinal was dead. Then the butler ,
Walsh , ushered forth to a cab the
venerable Itev. Donbresse. The ser
vant's eyes were wet as Dr. Keys , who
supported the Ilev. Father on one side said
to the waiting crowd outside , "The cardinal
Ip dead. " Monslgnor Preston remained with
the relatives and offered prayers for the repose -
pose of the dead prelate's soul. The other
dignitaries nnd priests retired after the death.
The cardinal's remains will rest In the vaults
of the cathedral. Interment will probably be
one week from Sunday next.

The Telephone .Suit.
WASIII.VUTOX , Oct. 9. Attorney fJeneral
( "iurland , under date of yesterday , has written
n long letter to President Cleveland in ex
planation of his position relative to tbo suit
brought by thu solicitor general in the name
of the United States to test the validity of
the Hell Telephone patent during the absence
of the attorney general. It begins by advert
ing to the fact that , on his return , after the
suit hail been commenced , the president
called his attention to what was being said
about It In the newspapers , that tlm writer
then informed th piesident that nil he knew
about it was contained in a telegram sent to
the New Oilcans Times-Democrat when the
matter was lir.st made public , that the matter
having since assumed general Importance ,
lie , tno writer , had thoiiuht it iiroiier on bis
own motion to lay the facts lully befoio the
iiicslilcnl ami cabinet on the current date
ol'iliiistli insl. On further retlcction ho had
decided to put the matter In wilting to be
used at the p ' ldcntphinurc. . He then
goes on to say that about thici- > cars ago , be
fore he had an idea of being nrndo attorney
general he joined with several others in or
ganizing the 1'an-electrle Telephone com
pany , of which be was made attorney.
Everything in connection with It was done
In good faith. Last summer Ca.-.ev Vonng ,
Colgcr , Mr. Van lienthiiv en and oflM-isi-amo
cai iii ! to him and a-iked that the mill IK ) com-
mciici i | in the name ol HID United
behalf of tlm I'iHi-clci'triu company , to test
tlm validity of ilu ; Hell patent * , Ho told them
be could not consider ( > ' < ; mat
ter because ho was n stockholder
In anil attorney fur the i'uii-t-U-etrie com
pany ; that this tact disabled him from con
sidering tin : subject or giving any iuhicu
about ttm matter , Ho heard no more of it
until ho received a illxpalch from the Tlim-s-
Dcmocrat , ho being then \il.ansis. . He
did uol then know that tin- use ol the nniim
of the United .States bad been granted. He
then goes on in say that Milt as brought by
the solicitor general , who under the law is not
a deputy or agent of thu attorney general ,
ami who , In ihe abscm-0 or disability of the
attorney tt'iic.rul ; , b cmpovteied toexcicl.so
nil the duties of that office. He adds : "Tlm
disability Is not limited to the one orpin-st
eal ability to perfotm the duties of thu ollice ,
but has reference to and includes that , us
well ns mental incapacity , or llicnuacllyon
account of Intcuwl in the subject matter.
And In eases coming within tills statement
tlu ! solicitor general acts for himself , llo Is
not responsible to the. . attorney general , nnd
the attorney general has no eoutiol over bis
actions. So , In the ease pro.vonted , being dis
abled or disqualified from acting , I , as attor
ney general simply "sat out , " as It were ,
as the repmt.s.show that n justice of the supreme
premo court , and of other courts , does when
lie has , previous to coming on the bench , or
otherwise , been connected with the ease be
fore the court. This IndeiH'iident character
of the solicitor genera ! In matters of tins sort
makes him even n cabinet officer
In the absence of the attorney-general. ( See
Klmer on Ui S. executive departments , bee.
Os't. ) And this department , has plenty of evi
dence of former solicitor-generals nellnir in
cabinet councils in the absence of the attor
ney-general. So that when it enmo to that
the Van-electric Telephone company wanted
to use the name of ( lie United States to test
the validity , of the Hell telephone patent , 1.
being disabled to act upon It , ns hereinbefore
stated , the solicitor general was the proper
person to act , whether 1 referred the matter
to him or whether I left the parties ( as 1 did )
to seek him , or any other remedy , as best
they could. The tact of my absence Is of
no moment in this Imiuiry be
cause if I was iljsabled to act
here nnd at the department < f justice In per
son the solicitor general could act. The at
torney general then proceeded to cite a num
ber of Instances in point , wherein solicitors
general have taken independent action on
matters coming within tlie split-roof the at
torney general , but from which tlie latter was
debarred trom considering by reason of being
personally Interested.
lie concludes as follows : "In answer to the
question propounded to me at tlie cabinet
meeting by yourself and others , as to the
course of procedure governing such matters ,
1 wish to say that there is a custom in this
department not any ilxed adopted rule but
n practice to have these questions all relerred ,
before they are finally passed upon here , to
the department from which tlm
original transaction emanates. Tliero hnvo
been n few acppllatlons to mo since.
1 have been attorney general for the use of
the name of the United States tqtest patents
for lauds as well as patents for Inventions ,
and 1 have had them , In every ease , i of erred
to the department fiom which tlie particular
patent is .ssued for Information and sugges-
lions before J ucteil upon tliem liually here.
Not that any suggestion or advice from that
department would be binding or conclusive
upon this , but for the sake of n more har
monious ami regular administration of the
affairs of the executive department Is this
custom practiced. 1 do not say that the
action could not bo bail by this department
independent of tills course , but in the few
eases that hnvo been before mo 1 hnvo fol
lowed the precedent , and within the last four
days 1 have done the same in an appli
cation for the use of the name of the
United States to test a patent for an inven
tion.
Accompanying the letter of the attorney-
general is the following Irom the president :
KXICUTIVI : : MANSION , WASHINGTON , Oc.t.
8 , msr . Hon. John ( loode , Solicitor Oiioral
My Dear Sir : 1 submit to you with this a
statement made by Attorney General ( Jar-
laud explaining Ills relations ( or rather want
of relations ) to the action taken by you In his
absence ( application to bring , in the name of
the United States a suit to test the validity
of n patent heal by the Hell telephone eoin-
panv. ) I will call your attention especially to
the latter part of tills statement In which ( lie
attorney-general speaks of the usual proced-
mo in tlie department of justice upon such
applications. Ueteience : The Interior de
partment , which lie mentions as an ordinary
leature , seems to have been dispensed with
in your treatment ot this application.
This"omission may have been the result of a
, lack of familiarly with the routine in suuh
cases , or of a perfectly clear and satisfactory
persuasion of what should bu done , derived
I nun documents presented to you. Whatever
the cause may be , and while such inference
is not vital , of course , to the validity of your
action , and though I am by no means pre
pared to question the correctness of tlie ex
ercise of your discretion in the matter , still
the precedent calling lor a reference to de-
paitmcnt with winch tbo matter is connected
is well established , and seems to mo so well
founded upon the considerations ot safety as
well as prosperity that , I desire to suggest for
your reflection , the proposition , whether such
action on your part as will preserve and pro
tect such precedent and eu.stom , could not
well be taken. "Yours very truly ,
CillOVKIl Cl.KVKI.AJfD. "
Solicitor-General ( > ooile.uiiderdato [ of to
day replies , acknowledging the prevalence of
the custom of reference and his omission of
It and adds : "Tills omission was not ( liere
sult of lack of familiarity with the routine in
such cases , but of a satisfactory persuasion ,
dcrlvitl entirely from the papers presented to
me as to what was right to bo done in tlie
premises. In addition to affidavits which ac
company the letter of the district attorney
wlio made application for permission to use
the name ot the United States in bringing
suit , be transmitted , an attested copy of ail
writings filed in tlie patelit ollices
and proceedings had thereupon , which
resulted In the issue ami delivery of the let
ters of patent , to Mr. Hell. Alter a careful
examination of these exhibits , which ap
peared to be duly authenticated , 1 came to the
conclusion that all the necessary informa
tion had been furnished by the patent ollice ,
and inasmuch us the question presented by
the papers tor my consideration was legal ex
clusively , 1 did not deem it advisable to refer
the application to the interior department for
suggestions. "
In closing , lie says he concurs In the sug
gestion that the precedent Is a bad one to set ,
and that lie has accordingly written to
United Stales Attorney MeCuroy , of tlie
Western district of Tennessee , directing him
to discoutlnuo said Mill.

There was a very largo attendance of tradcn- ,

encnlng figure for November was UOc , nnd
during the first hour that option fluctuated
between S'JJfc and OO c , broke olV to 8'JKe ,
then rose under largo buying orders to JWJjji' ,
fell back to OOe , and closed on the regular
board at OOgftJOJijc. Cable * came In stronger ,
noting another ndv.inee of 1 pence
for American wheat , and a linn feeling
at tlio advance. The statement was made

bids for wheat and that a good milling de
mand existed both at Minneapolis and St.
