The extreme heat of last week, together with perhaps more than his usual exertion In showing some friends about Pullman, had caused him a feeling of debility, about which he spoke to one or two friends, but which he did not regard as serious; _ He told one of them Monday who suggested that he was not looking quite as well as usual that he had: been unable to sleep, satisfactorily the last two nights, and particularly on Sunday night; that he had some little difficulty in breathing, but that be felt much better then and he felt that a day or two would put him all right . Death Came Very Quickly. "He, indeed, was so well that he intended to leave for New York Thursday evening. Death came to him- very quickly. At about 5 o'clock in-the,morning some friends who were staying at the house heard a nois-e in his room as if he wished to call some one. They went to his room immediately, and found him standing up and evidently in great pain. One of them went to the telephone to call his physician, Dr. Billings. At the same time he himself attempted to walk to the lounge, but before he reached it required the assast&nce of his friend to g-et there. He then became unconscious. In the meantime Dr. Billings had arrived at the house and applied restoratives, but without avail, and Mr. Pullman quietly passed away without regaining consciousness." His Wife Absent at >"ew Torfc. Mrs. Prank O. Lowden, formerly Miss Florence Pullman, the dead millionaire's daughter, and her husband were at the bedside when Mr. Pullman died. Mrs. Pullman was in New York. She was notified at once and started home. The suddenly demise shocked the household so badly that it was some time before anything was done toward notifying friends. But the news of Mr. Pullman's death rapidly spread through the neigh borhood and soon people in all thejiear by dwellings were sitting at their win dows gazing at the lowered brown curtains in the Pullman residence. Ev ery one of the directors of the Pullman Palace Car company, with the possibl exception of Norman Williams, is- away from Chicago. So no one at the offices could give any information as to wha would be the result of the president's death. It was said, however, that th works would r.ot be closed. Great Works Come to a Standstill. Not until 8:30 o'clock was the news telephoned to the Florence hotel, anc from there communicated to the office of the manager of thu wonts, but in a few minutes every employe of the big- corporation was aware that the man who mads It was.dead. Although no orders were given by the officials to close the works, operations, after the men had been tolfl of the death of Mr. Pullman, were at a standstill, the employes standing in front of the entrances and congregating In the arcade discussing the news. There wa^ considerable excitement down-town when the extra papers announcing the death were distributed. No other subject was discussed during the earlier morning- hours, interest even In the Luetgert trial for the time being relegated to second place?

He was one of ten children, ej'girt of whom reached adult life. These were Rev. Royal H. Pullman, Albert B. Pullman, George M. Pullman, Charles L. Pullman, Prank William Pullman, Helen A. Pullman, who married George "West, a woolen merchant of New York, and Emma C. Pullman, who became the wife of Dr. William P. Fluhrer, a leading surgeon of New York city. George M. received a plain common school education. He first got a position in a store at J40 a year, and at the end of the first year quit and went with his brother to learn the cabinet makers' trade, finally going into partnership with his brother. Together they conducted a fairly prosperous business, when the death of their father, Nov. 1, 1S53, caused a change in their plans. Upon George, who was unmarried, now fell the care and support of his mother and four of the younger members of the family. This required him to get into something- at which he could earn more. The Erie canal, began in 3S17, and finished according to the original plans in 1S25, had become inadequate to the demands made upon it, and at this time was being enlarged by the state, which had advertised for contracts, for raising buildings along the improved waterway. He -was only 22, but he bid for a contract and got it, and so successfully dici he accomplish th« work that he was scon ranked with the leading contractors in that line cf business, and found no difficulty in getting all the work he could do. In 1S59 he removed to Chicago anfl engaged extensively in the then novel task of raising entire blocks of brick and •tone buildings. That year his attention flat directed to tfa» discomfort of costar.cc railway traveling, and ne determin-ed. if possible, to offer the public something better. In 1859 he remodeled two old day coaches of the Chicago and Alton road into sleeping cars, which at once found favor and established a demand for improved traveling accommodation. In 1S63 he began the construction at Chicago of a sleeping car; upon the row well-known model, which was destined to associate his name inseparably with progress In railway equip- Tt-H It was named the "Pioneer,"- and oost about $18.000. From this small beginning hecoritinued todevelop his ideas forcom- fort and safety ir. railway travel, till Pullman cars are now known all over the world. The Pullman Palace Car ecnipany, of which he was president, was organized in 1S67, and it now operates over 1,400 cars on more than 100,000 miles of railway. In 1S87 he deslgne-l and established the system of "vestibuled trains," which virtually makes of an entire train a single car. They were first put in service upon the Pennsylvania trunk lines, and are now to be found on many other railroads. In 1SSO, in obedience to the Imperative demand of the Pullman company for In- crea^cj shop facilities, and to- give effect to an idea he had long cherished of improving the social surroundings of the workmen, he founded near Chicago the industrial town of Pullman, which now contains over 11,000 inhabitants, 5,000 of whom are employed in the company's shops. Architecturally the town fs picturesque, with broad streets, hand- soi.-e public buildings, and attractive hoi; "PS, supplied with every modern convenience, for the employes. According to mortality statistics, it Is one of the most healthful places in the world.

Upon It Depi-mln Whether a Man Shall Hanj^ for Murder. Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 20. — Mrs. Eunice Ixjvine, aged 23 years, yesterday Identified the body of a 2-year-old girl taken from the Missouri river Sunday morning as that of her daughter. Upon her statements a warrant has been issued for the arrest of her husband, who is in hiding. The body when found was weighted down with a heavy stone and bore an ugly wound on the head indicating murder. Lovine and his wife separated sometime since after quarreling over the disposition of the child. Jici Ix>vine has been arrested at Hoxie, in western Kansas. He immediately stated that he had left the child at the home of his brother, near Lincoln Center, Kan,, and in answer to telegraphic inquiry the authorities at Lincoln Center reported that a child answering the description was at the brother's house. Mrs. Lovine, however, stou' : 'y insists that the body here is that of.b.v child, and sho is still more positive ~as to th* identity or the clothing found with trie body, as ahe claims to have sewed it. all. The Identity of the child at Lincoln Center will be further investigated. Y TAKES A SLEEP. Luetgert Left in Suspense as to His Fate for Another Long, Weary Night. BEBEEY SENSATION IN THE CASE. JUSTICE SEEMS TO MISCARRY TTIien a Girl-Murderer Gets but Five 1'cart and Later Is Pardoned. Chicago, Oct. 20.—Accompanied by a party of friends, and crying in a hysterical manner, Mrs. Wilh-elmine Werner, mother ot.little Emma Werner, who was murdered by George Craig May 9, 189S, called at the office of Chief of Police Kipley yesterday afternoon and sought the assistance of the chief in sending a protest to Governor Tanner and requesting the governor to rescind the pardon he gavp Craig last Saturday. . The woman became hysterical as she discussed the murder of her daughter and cried aloud. She told the chief she would start last nig-ht and walk to Springfield for the purpose of seeing Governor Tanner and to plead with him to withdraw the pardon which has already been granted Craig. Of course the protest is too late, butitla being freely signed. Emma Werner waa only 7 years old when this dastard mur- ered her. He pleaded guilty and the jury gave him five years! Now because he Is dying of consumption the governor has pardoned him. ONE GOVERNOR TO ANOTHER'. toulglana Says to MisslBdlppi "It'* a Long- Time Bet-ween Quarantines." New Orleans, Oct. 20. — The yellow fever has developed in Baton Rouge and the governor of Louisiana Is now a captive in his capital. It is just the other way with the governor of Mississippi. He has not been able for a month to get into his capital. As the governor of Mississippi said to the governor of Louisiana, it is a long time between quarantines. New Orleans, Oct. 20.—The report of the yellow fever here shows an increase of new cases to 56 in one day; deaths, 4: total cases to date. 921; total deaths, 104. At Mobile, 5 new cases; Clinton, Miss., 1 new case; Edwards, Miss., -J new cases; Montgomery, Ala., 4 cases; Scranton, Mies., 7 new cases. Woman Tries to Commit Suicide, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Oct. 20.—Mrs. James Atchinson, of West, Superior, Wis., made an unsuccessful attempt at suicide by drowning by jumping into St. Mary's Falls canal. She jumped Tom the south pier near the west end and \vas rescued, half dead, by Watchmen Stewart and Bernier. The woman, rho is about 25, is very pretty and will nly say that she is the wife of a. railroad engineer at West Superior, where ihe also has a child. She will give no reason for her ra?h act. Trammer Killed in a Mine, Calumet, Mich., Oct. 20. — John H. 'ohnson, a trammer, was killed in the Tamarack mine. He was at work half mile underground, when a heavy piece f vein rock fell and literally squashed him. Though horribly crushed he lived an hour.

Chicago, Oct. 20.—Another night of suspense was ahead of the defendant in the Luetgert case when a.t 9 o'clock last night the jury had gone to bed on cota which were placed in the court room, and it was announced by Judge TuthiH tkat even though by one chanoe in a million the jurors should wake up and agree upon a verdict there would be no announcement, and the court room would under no circumstances be opened until 10 o'clock this morning;. A few minutes after 8 o'clock Judge TuthiH appeared at Uje criminal court building, and being admitted alone by the bailiffs at the entrance he passed quickly upstairs, giving positive orders that no- .body should be admitted to the building under any circumstances.. Learning that the jurors were weary and that there was no prospect of a ver- diet if they stayed awake the Judge ordered cots put in the court room and let the jury out of their cramped quarters into that room to sleep. The judge then left the building and went home. lx>oks Like a Disagreement. After the judge left the room th* jurors proceeded to make themselves comfortable. A bountiful dinner waa served soon after and then the cigars which Judge TuthiH had ordered to the jury were passed around. Soon the. big court room was filled with a haey atmosphere fragrant or otherwise with the fum.es of burning tobacco. The state's attorney said: "It looks to me at present as though a disagreement would be the final result. Inspector Schaack and Assistant State's Attorney McEwen are inclined to place more importance upon those two letters offering the foreman a bribe than I am. They seem to think there is a big plot behind it all. Personally I believe the letters were either written by a crank or they are a hoax perpetrated by some newspaper man. The proposition is too bold and the person making it offers to expose himself ts the clutches of the'law too readily for it to be genuine," Rumors as to How the Jury Stand*. There were rumors of all kinds afloat during the evening, all of them being to the effect that the friends of Luetgert on the jury were weakening. It was known during the day that the vote stood eight to four, and last night the rumors wars that it was ten for the death penalty and two for acquittal. A later story was that It stood eleven for hanging and one for acquittal. Juror Harley is admitted to be the stout friend of Luetgert on the Jury, and it is he who is leading the fight for an acquittal. Over in the jail Luetgert was during the evening anxiously awaiting word from the Jury room, "If they don't agree." he said, "I get bail and I will be out of this. I can give bail for $1,000,000 if they want that much. My wife is living- somewhere, but I admit she is having a lot of fun with me at -present. There is one thing sure," the prisoner said, "there will b« no conviction in this case. It will be either an acquittal or a disagreement." Took H Ballot Before Sleeping. Just before retiring for the night the jury took another ballot, the vote standing nine for conviction and three for acquittal. The four jurors who have been standing out for acquittal are Behmiller. Barber, Holabird and Herley. The two latter are still for acquittal, but either Behmiller or Barber has come over to the state. There is much feeling against Harley among the Jurors who favor the death penalty. They say •he.will not agree in any way, but sticks solidly for Luetgert. Kcy»( cuke* the food pure. *AW POWDER •OVU.

EPISCOPAL MISSIONARY COUNCIL Catherine of Bishop* from All Over th* Country—I>r. JJreclc's Kointermeiit. Milwaukee, Oct. 20.—Perhaps the most important meeting- of the year BO far «.S Episcopal churchmen are concerned was the assembling yesterday o' th« missionary council of that denomination. These meetings are held twice in three years, that is in those years when the tritinnial convention of the board of missions is not held. To this meeting have come Episcopal bishops from every part of the United States. Their work at this session is confined strictly to matters pertaining: to missionary- fields, both domestic and foreign. Reports of what has been accomplished will be carefully considered and plans for the future will be laid. Tomorrow the entire convocation of bishops will go out to Nashotah, Wis., one of the most picturesque spots in the state, and the real seat 'of missionary work in the Episcopal church, to attend the reinterment of the remains of Dr. J. Breck, one of the founders of the Nashotah institution. Dr. Breok died many years ago, and it haa loni? been the desire cf those v.-ho call Nashotah their alma mater to bring the remains from their resting place In the church yard at Benicia, Cal., to the old grounds at Nashotah. There will be a tinge of romance in the ceremony, for the interment will be close to a. mammoth cross, hewn out of a solid rock, which marks the site of the first Episcopal missionary altar in the northwest. TOOK DYNAMITE TO SCHOOL. SOMEBODY OFFERS A BRIBE. tetters Sent to the Jury, but Intercepted by Judge TuthilL Chicago, Oct. 20.—Two letters offering bribes to the foreman of the jury In the Luetgert case .have been received by Judge TuthiH, and ar* now in the possession of the.state's attorney. The amount offered is $1,600. Both letters are signed "George Atrill." State's Attorney Deneen Is not disposed to regard the * attempted bribery seriously, but Inspector Schaack and Assistant State's Attorney McEwen look upon the matter with suspicion.The first letter waa received last Monday mornin. It was dated Oct. 16, the day upon which it wiis originally believed the case would go to the jury. It is addressed to the foreman of the jury and says: "A powerful influence is at work to save Adolph L. Luetgert. Money is scarce and in these hard times $100 or so comes in handy. I have $1,600 to divide among you twelve men. If you want it have two good men, smooth-faced, thit are discreet, at the southeast corner of Randolph and Dearborn street tomorrow at l o'clock p. m. Let them wear white linen neckties, or if-they prefer It red bow ties. Everything will t-e all right. The money it secure in a Clark street bank." The second: letter is under date of Oct. 16, and Is also addressed to the foreman of the Luetgert Jury. It is as follows: "Why didn't you have the young men at the southeast confer of Randolph an$ Dearborn streiete as sug-, gested? In the present hard times $100 is pretty useful. If you will agree -to vote Luetgert free, we can yet arranya matters. Send the young men tomorrow." Judge Tutiull opens mil mail sent to the jurors and in this way th«ce letters fell into, his hands. His honor is inclined to regard the letter* M a hoax, as i» also Deneea.
