Princeton, N. J., June 25.—Ex-ProBl-
dent Grover Cleveland died suddenly
nt his home here at 8:40 o'clock
Wednesday morning. While his death
was unexpected he had been ill for a
number of weeks and his condition
was weakened. Only Tuesday Dr.
Ex-President Grover Cleveland.
Joseph T. Bryan of New York paid a
visit to Mr. Cleveland's home, but the
Information was subsequently given
out that the visit was not occasioned
by an alarming condition of the for-
mer president's life.
Indeed, Mrs. Cleveland was particu-
larly cheertul over the condition of
her husband. He was apparently in
good spirits and his health was better
than it had been for some time. Tues-
day afternoon he took a little outdoor
exercise and retired at his usual hour
When the discovery of his death was
made the residents of Princeton were
shocked and the grief of Mrs. Cleve-
land was almost uncontrollable.
For a number of years Mr. Cleveland
has suffered from periodic attacks of
sickness, usually in the summer time.
Last year he became 111 In the spring
and did not recover his wonted health
until September. Mrs. Cleveland was
overjoyed that her husband had re-
covered so quickly this year and she
was on the verge of planning for their
Heart failure, complicated with
prombosls and oedema, was the direct
cause of Mr. Cleveland's death.
It is believed that the terrific heat of
the last few days contributed in a
great degree to the BUdden death of
New Jersey was the stale which
gave Grover Cleveland birth. His
father, the Rev. Richard Cleveland, a
Connecticut Yankee, had married Ann
Neal, the daughter of an Irish book-
seller and a German Quakeress. Four
children had been born to them when
the Rev. Mr. Cleveland was assigned
to the Presbyterian pastorate in Cald-
well, Esex county, N. J. There. March
18, 1837, was born the fifth of their
nine children. In honor of the pastor
who had preceded him, the Rev. Mr.
Cleveland called his new son Stephen
Grover, a uame which its possessor
shortened in after years by dropping
At the age of 14 Grover got his first
Job. He was employed by a grocery-
man, n^d his salary reached a grand
total of $50 a year. At the age of 17
he went to Buffalo, N. Y„ and entered
a law office, and drifting into politics
was nominated by the Democrats
for district attorney of Erie county and
was defeated. In 1870 he was nom-
inated for sheriff of Erie county and
was elected. Following this in 1882
he was elected mayor of Buffalo. Six
months after he becama mayor he was
elected governor of New York by a
phenomenal majority. Four years
later he was the nominee of his party
for president. Against hhn was James
G. Blaine. The campaign was a bitter
one and resulted In the election of
Mr. Cleveland. The vote in New York,
the pivotal state, was very close, Mr.
Cleveland's plurality being but 1,119.
In 1888 Mr. Cleveland was renomi-
nated for president, Benjamin Harri-
son being the Republican uominee.
Mr. Harrison was successful.
In 1892 the same gentlemen were
again candidates for the presidency.
This time Mr. Cleveland received a
majority of the electoral vote. Retir-
ing from the White House at the end
of his second term he has lived peace-
fully and quietly at his home in
Princeton, N. J.

ment Declares It a Ban-
El Paso, Tex., June 27.—A special
dispatch received here says a band
of Mexican revolutionists attacked the
town of Los Vacas, Mexico, early Fri-
day and some of the revolutionists
are believed to have crossed into
Texas. The Texas Bheriff wired ask-
ing the governor if he could arrest
any fugitives coming into the state.
The governor referred the matter to
the attorney general who held that
the state officers could take no action
as the matter of political fugitives
coming Into the United States from
foreign countries was a question for
federal authorities to deal with. It Is
reported that the revolutionists were
Later information says that about
5,000 shots were exchanged. Th? of-
ficers' quarters were burned and be-
tween 40 and 50 killed on both sides.
The troop commandant was badly
wounded. Another outbreak Is ex-
pected as the revolutionists have well
All telegraphic and telephonic wires
have been cut. The worst attack oc-
curred at the custom house.
BRYAN TO BE NOMINATED ON
City of Mexico, June 27.—Wild
stories concerning a formidable and
serious revolutionary outbreak in the
northern part of Mexico were wholly
discredited Friday by telegraphic re-
ports received from Gov. Cardenas of
tho stato of Coahuila.
According to these telegraphic ad-
vices which were received by Vice
President Corral Friday, one of the
boldest bandit raids ever attempted In
the history of Mexico was successful-
ly carried out when the town of
Viesca was assaulted and looted Thurs-
day. The bandits, numbering 50, all
well armed and mounted, swooped
down upon the town without warning.
A feeble resistance was made by the
police of the place but after thrf>e of
them were killed and three more wound-
ed the marauders practically had
things their own way. They first pro-
ceeded to the jail, releasing all the In-
mates, pome of whom Joined the rob-
bers. Tho bandits next headed for the
Bank of Nuova Leon, a branch of the
main institution of that name which
is located In the city of Monterey.
They soon overpowered the employes
there and robbed the bank of all the
money they could get at. The sum Is
not stated in the official dispatches.
From there the robbers with a
whoop went to the government stamp
office, looting it and doing great dam-
age to the postofflce. They then
turned their attention to the express
office, robbing it.
Hearst Gained 863 Votes.
New York, June -7.—With the prac-
tical close of the actual re-counting
of the ballots caBt in the last mayor-
alty election Thursday came charges
by Clarence W. Shearn, counsel for
W. R. Hearst, that the ballot boxes
had been stuffed. As the re-count
stands, with the contents of 46 boxes
unreported, Hearst has made a net
gain of 8C3, leaving a plurality of 2,971
for Mayor McClellan.
United States Treasurer Charles H.
Treat was overcome by the heat Tues-
day and will not be able to leave his
room for a few days.
He Also Started a Boom for John
W. Kern for Vice
Denver, Col., June 27.—Thomas Tag-
gart, chairman of the National Demo-
cratic committee, came to town Thurs
day, bringing along a vice presidential
boom, which he put forth with much
"Bryan will be nominated on the
first ballot, without a doubt, and his
running mate will be John W. Kern
of Indiana. Mr. Kern will be placed
In nomination by John E. Lamb, or
B. F. Schively, both of that state and
his nomination ought to follow."
This was the greeting Mr. Taggart
gave to newspaper men. A little later
when he had been whizzed to the
Auditorium—the Convention hall—he
exhibited little less enthusiasm.
Chairman Taggart has called a
meeting of the National committee for
Saturday, July 4, when the principal
business will be to hear and determine
the contests for seats as delegates,
which have been filed. These are
comparatively few In number. So far
field with Secretary Woodson, they
include contests from the second,
third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh
districts of New York; the ninth Ohio,
and the delegation from the District
of Columbia. It has been stated that
a number of seats from Illinois were
to be contested, but as yet no official
notice of such intention has been re-
A conference between Chairman
Taggart and other members of the
national committee was held Thursday
night, when it was decided that con-
sideration of contests would begin
Monday, July 6, the day before the
convention opens. Chairman Taggart
explained that but little time would be
required to decide contests as they
were small in number and would be
disposed of quickly.
Chairman Taggart was asked as to
his ambitions with regard to succeed-
ing himself as chairman of the nation-
al committee. He replied with con-
siderable emphasis: "I know I will
not be chairman." Further than that,
he declined to go.

AN INTERESTING DECISION [||$ BQQY AT REST
ILLINOIS LOSES DEEP WATERWAY
SUIT IN CHICAGO.
Court Declares a Dam Lease From
Lake Michigan and Hennepin
Chicago, J | e 27—A decision that
may have considerable bearing upon
the plans for a deep waterway from
Lake Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico
.was handed down in the circuit court
of Cook county Thursday by Judge
Julian S. Mack. The court upheld the
right of the Economy Light and Power
company to construct a dam across
the Des Plalnes river at Dresden
Heights, dissolving an Injunction suit
brought by the state of Illinois against
the company and declaring valid a 20-
year lease which the company had se-
cured on the Bite from the commis-
sioners of the old Lake Michigan &
Hennepin canal. The case has been
before the court two months and in-
volves interests valued at $15,000,000.
The state claimed that the Des
Plalnes river Is navigable and that the
construction of a dam across it would
obstruct the passage of boats which
the public had a right to float upon it.
It was also claimed that the bed of
the stream was owned by the state
aud that the lease under which the
company claimed the right to use aud
overflow certain canal lands was void
In that the commissioners who granted
It were without power in the premises.
Some 30,000 pages of depositions and
typewritten records were placed on
file in au effort to substantiate these
allegations and experts on river navi-
gation were called from many states
bordering upon the Mississippi and
Missouri rivers. Fifty maps were alsv.
used as testimony.
Judge Mack found against the state
on practically every point.
Recognized His Wife,
Topeka, Kan., June 26.—George
Blair Harrison, the son of ex-Mayor
Harrison,, whose disappearance from
here about January 2 was shrouded in
mystery till he was found running a
chicken ranch near San Diego, Cal.,
returned home Wednesday night. He
apparently recognized his wife, but
shows no evidence of ever having be-
fore met those who were formerly his
beBt friends. Harrison's lapse of mem-
ory is attributable to a blow on the
head at Garden City, Kan., by a gam-
bler on whom he was waging a news-
paper war. He Intends to return to
California and take his family. Hif
recollection dates back to January 10.

cution in the case of William T. Carr
for the murder of Express Messenger
Bailey on a Santa Fe train early oh
the morning of March 29, Friday In-
troduced evidence tending to prove the
murder was committed in Marion coun-
ty. One of the main contentions of
the defense will be, it is understood,
that the crime was committed In an-
other county and that the Marlon
county court has no authority to try

Princeton, N. J., June 27.—Grover
Cleveland's body lies burled in the
Cleveland plot in Princeton cemetery.
At six o'clock, just as the sun was
sinking in the west, a distinguished
company silently watched as the body
was lowered Into the grave. Then
the simple burial service of the Pres-
byterian church was read and before
the last carriages in the cortege had
driven up to the path leading to the
burial place, the benediction had been
pronounced and the members of the
family, President Roosevelt and others
who had gathered about the grave
were leaving the cemetery.
Many of the personal friends of the
dead statesman lingered about the
Bpot which was to mark his last rest-
ing place and each in turn was per-
mitted to cast a shovelful of earth into
Agreeable "to the wishes of Mrs.
Cleveland the services both at the
house and at the cemetery were of the
simplest character. An invocation,
Bcriptural reading, a brief prayer and
the reading of a William Wordsworth
poom "Character of the Happy War-
rior," constituted the services at the
house while the reading of the burial
service at the grave was brief and
Although the funeral was of a
strictly private nature, those in at-
tendance numbered many distin-
guished citizens, Including President
Roosevelt, Gov. Fort of New Jersey,
Hughes of New York, Hoke Smith of
Georgia, former members of President
Cleveland's cabinet, officials of the
Equitable Life Assurance society,
members of the Princeton University
faculty, and friends and neighbors.
Mr. Cleveland was burled with all
the simplicity and privacy that he
himself might have wished, as a pri-
vate citizen rather than as the former
chief executive of the nation. There
was nothing that savored of the of-
ficial and the military element was in-
jected solely as a measure of pre-
caution in protecting President Roose-
The president arrived at 4:38 p. m.
Upon his arrival at the house the
president went to Mrs. Cleveland, of-
fering his sympathy and expressing
keen regret at Mr. Cleveland's death.
A few minutes later the four clergy-
men who officiated came down the
stairs to the hall leading to the re-
ception room followed by Mrs. Cleve-
land and the children, Esther and
Richard. As they appeared upon the
landing, accompanied by Dr. Joseph D.
Bryant, the whole company rose and
remained standing throughout the ser-
vices. Mrs. Cleveland was gowned in
black, and wore a becoming hat with
a short drooping veil. Esther was
also in black while Richard wore a
white suit and black tie.
The services began with an Invoca-
tion by Rev. Sylvester W. Beach of
the First Presbyterian church of
Princeton which was followed by
Scriptural reading by Rev. Maitland V.
Bartlett of the West Farms Presby-
terian church of New York, a former
pastor of Mr. Cleveland who read from
the fourteenth chapter of the Book of *
John and a number of passages from
the fourth and twenty-second chapters
of the TheBsalonians.
Dr. Henry Van Dyke then said that
"according to the request of one
whose slightest wish at this moment
we all respect there will be no ad-
dress or sermon but there was a poem
written more than 100 years ago by
William Wordsworth which is expres-
sive of his character." He then read
the poem, "Character of the Happy
This followed by readings from the
Presbyterian Book of Common Wor-
ship, the services at the house con-
cluding with prayer.
The pall bearers, six on either side
5f the hearse, marched with the pro-
fession as it wended Its way slowly
lown Bayard Lane to Nassau street
ind on aloug the main thoroughfare
)f the town. Business had been sus-
pended during the afternoon and cur-
tains were drawn in many of the
houses. The silent crowds stood with
bared heads as the procession passed
along into Vandeventer avenue and
the bell In the tower of Old Nassau
hall tolled mournfully.
The members of the family alighted
from their carriages and with the
four clergymen in the lead, walked
slowly down the graveled path leading
to the open grave and the rose strewn
grave of Ruth, both almost hidden in
the profusion of green boughs and
flowers. Mrs. Cleveland stood with
Esther and Richard and Dr. Bryant
as the coffin was slowly lowered into
the grave. Dr. William M. RichardB
of the Brick Presbyterian church of
New York had started to read the com-
mittal services even before President *
Roosevelt and others had reached the
scene. The president stood just back
of Mrs. Cleveland as the Impressive
final words were spoken. The sep
vices lasted less than five minutes.
The Louisiana legislature has passed
a bill to prevent the drinking of intoxi^
