As soon ds I have the power I \vill chase Croke to the ends of the earth if I can find anything; against him. Platt will comi under the same arrangement."

Today the cheers of the workers have suddenly been changed to sighs; for, true to his word. Henry George died as he wished to die—in harness, fighting—to ward the close of the greatest municipal political contest the world has ever seen, Strain of the i'iglit Too Heavy. The end was peaceful, and he died without pain. This man of brain and courage was physically frail, and the strain of an exciting campaign requiring speech-making at points many miles apart, night after night, was more than nature could stand. He kept it up to the end, and only a few hours before the dread messenger cried "Halt!" Henry George had addressed enthusiastic audiences in three of the towns of the borough of Queens and a still larger assemblage in an uptown hall here. During the evening noisy, shouting, throngs crushed in halls and streets to hear the speeches that in great part were filled with personalities and bitterness; rockets flared and fires burned; men argued and urged, and all signs bore witness that the campaign was at its heat, Cli;l.nffe Comes with tlie Morning-. But when yesterday dawned all was changed. Men were loath to believe that one who had been so much in the public eye in the last few weeks was no more, and for the time being the complexion of the political situation was forgotten in genuine grief, that waspromptly expressed. The following was sent by Judge Van Wyck to Mrs. George: "I am inexpressibly shocked. No words can express my regret or my sincere sympathy." General Tracy, the Republican nominee for mayor, said at his headquarters: "I regret exceedingly this unfortunate affair. I have had the highest respect for Mr. George's philosophy." Richard Croker, against whom George had burled his sharpest and heavies shafts, sent this message to Mrs. George "Allow me to express my deepest sympathy for you In your great bereavement." Ex-Gov.

Altgeld, who is taking the magno-mud baths at this place, in an interview yesterday expressed himself as follows regarding the death of Henry George: "Henry George was one of the great'-men of the *ge, and he made a deeper impression on the economic thought ojp this country than any other man. He' was true and patriotic, and. always on the dtde ot Justice and struggling : humanity. His fame will grow broader with time.

He came east with his father in 1SSO: was his father's secretary in his trip to England in 1SSS and has since been employed in responsible editorial and other positions on several newspapers. But the practical politicians are all said to agree that the hugn Democracy of Thomas Jefferson, built up by Henry George in -;hre-e weeks, will not be the principal factor in next Tuesday's election. It had been generally estimated that he would have polled more than 100.000 votes if he had survived the campaign, but these votes are probably not transferable. Who will get them is speculation, but the wiseacres are dividing them up to their own satisfaction in t score of different ways. The committee in charge of the funeral ceremonies have arranged the follow- icr order of services: "From sunrise on Snnday till sunset of the same day the body of the great leader will lie in state In the Grand Central Palace. During- the afternoon, beginning- at 3 o'clock, the funeral services and orations will take place. The funeral car will start from the Grand Central Pa.lace at 7 o'clock on Sunday evening, and proceed to the Brooklyn city hall. Qeorye was at OF TEE MAS WHO FEU* Could Sot Get a PubHuher and Printed ProprwiS and Poverty Himself. Henry George was born In Philadelphia in lS3a. Hig grandfather, though born in England, fought on the American side in the war of 1S12. After leaving school Henry was a clerk in a mercantile house, and at 16 shipped on a schooner for San Francisco. He prospected for gold, but found but little, though he went as far as British Columbia. In 1S5S he got employment in a, printing office. He learned the trade and did some reporting on the papers of that city In 1S65 he married Miss Anna C. Fox. In iSll, he with two partners, founded the San Francisco Post, remaining as editor of that paper for four years. He had ideas on sociology, and when. he left The Post he began work on his book, "Progress and Poverty." But he could find no publisher and he was compelled to "get it out himself." 3eing of an economical turn of mind— for he was by no means rich—he availed his printer's trade and set the type" himself. He "made up the forms" and carried them to the printer. When the first hundred sheets were printed he had them bound and began to "push" the book. It finally brought him fame and a good deal cf money. George went to Ireland as correspondent of several American newspapers in 1SS1, during the land league agitation. He was arrested as a suspect and held prisoner for ten hours, but.was not molested after his release. He delivered many lectures in Ireland. His book and lectures brought him a fair ncome. In 1SS1 he wrote "The Irish Land Question," which in later editions apeared as "The Land Question." He also published "Social Problems" and "Protection, or Free Trade?" He was now located permanently in the east, and in 1SS6 he was nominated for mayor by the labor party of New York. They nad read his book, and they had heard him speak. And they wanted him. The campaign was as bitter as the one now drawing to a close in New York. The politicians refused for a while to consider Heriry George's.'candidacy se- rioua But he polled 68,000 votes, to 60,:35 for Roosevelt, the Republican candidate. He was a staunch supporter of rover Cleveland, for free trade—abso- ute free trade—was one of his founda- ion principles. One incid-ent shows the man's defiance of convention. Called aa a juror in the trial of Dr. Buchanan, accused of murder, George was rejected because he said he would not take the judge's ruling for the law. He believed he knew the law himself. The judge was Incensed, but he could do no more than dismiss the fearless talesman. In JSS6 he was at Chicago reporting the Democratic national convention for a New York paper. He had worked, for wages practically all his life. Yet he had been undoubtedly regarded as in the foremost rank of influential meii in America. The keynote of hi.s character was aggressiveness. While it was his great power of mental concentration that enabled him to elaborate into a system his single-tax balm for human ills, yet it is -quite certain that his proposition for a. millennium would have gone to join the procession of forgotten Utopias if it had not been for the fighting ingredients In his Welsh blood. He wa? absolutely fearless. He was not afraid to charge Richard Croker— even the king of Tammany—with outright theft: and he repeated night after night the promise to send that potentate to Sing Sing, if elected. In attacking established forms cf government he was no less courageous. But the tact of the man, and his evident honesty must have been his chief defenses, for although he advocated a change as sweeping' as could be well conceived h« was never 'or a moment classed with such as Par- sors and Most, and Emma GoldmsiB.. He leaves a. widow and three children, ho occupy the beautiful home at Fort Hamilton, which he had viewed -with more loving interest than any other >f hi.s possessions, and on -which he lav- shed whatever of wealth his labor could wring from the world- His books are: 'Progress and Poverty." "Our Land and Land Policy." "Single Tax," "The Irish Question." "Social Problems," 'Property In Land." "Protection or Free Iracle," "The Condition of Labor" and ""A Perplexed Philosonber." NTEBESTS.

Including Sugar, That W« Should Rai&B for Ourselves— Hint About the Hone Trade—Bureau of Animal Industry—Crop Report*. "Washington, Oct. 30.—Secretary Wil- Bon yesterday presented his report to the president reviewing the operations of tlie department of agriculture for the past year. The most Important recommendation made by him is one that agents for the department should be stationed at each of our more important American embassies for the collection of information of interest to American farmers. Referring to this subject hesays: "We are endeavoring to get information from foreign countries with which we compete in the markets of the world regarding crops and prices. We are also making steps to ascertain what crops are, crown on different thermal ines, so that seeds and plants may In- .elligently be brought to this country to assist in the diversification of our :rops and add to their variety. There is necessity for American agents, in every foreign country to which we send' representatives, who have had educa-' Ion in the sciences relating- to agri-' lulture. The agricultural colleges en- owed by congress are educating- along hese lines." Would Disseminate Farm Information. The secretary recommends an in- rease in the appropriations in aid of a ureauof animal industry,of theweath- r bureau and the publication offices. He thinks the department should be nabled to place the results of im- ortant operations at agricultural «5l- eges before the entire country, "so that the farmers of each state may get the result of the good work done in other states." He refers to the efforts of the' department to extend the foreign markets for our dairy and live stock products, which he th!nk=t can be done by making the foreigners familiar with them. Instead of sending abroad for seeds he says the policy in the future will be "to encourage the introduction of such seeds as will enable our people to diversify their crops and keep money at home that is now sent abroad to buy what the United States should produce."

He also thinks the United States should grow their own chicory, castor beans, lavender, llcgriee. mustard, opium, etc. SHOVLD HATE HOKSES TO SELL. Reference to.the Work of the Bureau of Animal Industry. With reference to horses, the secretary says: "The. American farmer can grow horses as cheaply as he can grow cattle; we have a heavy and profitable export trade in cattle and may have an export trade equally heavy and profitable in horses. The department is gathering- facts regarding- our horse industry at home, and the requirements of purchasers abroad, so that our 'fanners can learn what foreign buyers demand." The most important work in which the animal industry bureau has been engaged, he says, is looking to the destruction of the cattle tick, for which it is believed that an agent has been found in a petroleum product known aa paraffin oil. in which infected cattle are dipped. The extension of the meat inspection work to abbatoirs engaged in interstate business is recommended, as is the con- :inuance of the inspection of export animals in order to maintain the market which has been secured for them in other countries. The secretary criticises the present system of crop reporting. He says it is extremely cumbersome, and that instead of conducing to completeness and accuracy it would apear from the report of the statistician to in some measure defeat its own object by its own unvreildinesa, and by the fact that he indefinite multiplication of crop reporters weakens the sense of Individual •esponsibility. "I strongly favor the making of some >ecuniary acknowledgement of the ser-ices of a carefully selected corps of correspondents, selected mainly in the irincipal agricultural states, and that eliance be placed upon the state statistical agents for information regarding the states of minor agricultural importance." He recommends the employment of a principal statistical agent in each state. GEO. LAVIGNE WHIPS WALCOTT. Twelve Rounds Is All the Colored Boxer Can Stand of the Kid's Cyclone. San Francisco. Oct. 30.—George Lavigne whipped Joe Walcott last night, and whipped him thoroughly. Ten thousand people saw the fight under the auspices of the Occidental club. While the ending was abrupt and unexpected at the moment, r.o: oneof the great crowd believed the eventual ending would prove unfavorable no the Saginaw Kid. He set a terrific pace from the sound of th'e g-ong- in the first round until the end.of the twelfth, and had a g-ood margin to the good ic every round. While Walcott stalled off die sturdy Michigan man's rushes he could cot stop Lavjgxje. At the close of tlie ninth roand Joe was seen to limp in going to his corner, and his seconds gave their attention to his legs. Walcott is subject to muscular cramps in his lower limbs and it was thia ailment which uofortiina-teiy attacked tfct •lulnoM for the Lart Half of October IK Somewhat Dlofipnolntlny. New York, Oct. 30.—Bradstreet'a guys-. Ocneral trade retains most of the features of a week ago, with a continued check to the movement of staple merchandise. At the larger eastern *nd central western cities sales of seasonable goods have not equalled expectations, and at none of these points has the volume, of business increased. At" Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, New York and Providence there has been a, decrease in the volume of business in some lines, due in part to unseasonable weather and in some instances to the continued quarantine of yellow fever districts. Business in staple lines for the latter half of October, aside from that in wool and metals, has been somewhat disappointing. The northwest continues to make relatively more favorable reports as to trade, although at Milwaukee and Minneapolis mild weather baa checked distribution. Consumption ot, iron and steel continues heavy, but mills refuse orders for 1898 delivery in the belief that the cost of the making off iron and steel will b« higher. Woolen goods continue firm and in fair demand with an upward tendency, but cotton fabrics are weak and the market is heavily stocked. Wheat is again above a dollar, on continued heavy exports. ._ The total number of business failures reported throughout the United States this week is 218, compared with. 205 last week, 246 in the week a year ago, 299 two years ago, ?53 three years ago and a.s contrasted with 353 in the fourth week of October, 1893. NATIONAL W. C. T. U. CONVENTION. Mb-n Willarrt Opeux It at Buffalo and Give* Her Views of Things. Buffalo, N. T., Oct. 30.—A breakfast- tide prayer meeting in the North- Presbyterian church, led by Mrs. K. J. Trego, of Ohio, served to put the delegates to the twenty-fourth annual convention of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union in a fitting frame ot mind for the proceedings of their opening day. . One hour later, at 9 o'clock, MAss Frances E. Willard brought down her gavei upon the table behind th« footlights !n Music hall and called th* convention to order. After reiigious exercises the calling of the roll by Mrs. Clara C. Hoffman, of Missouri, developed the fact that every delegate or alternate was in her place. Miss Willard's address was the feature of the day's proceedings. It urged an attack on the moderate drinkerasth* most important matter needing- attention; expressed sorrow at the failure of the arbitration treaty wh'ich is called » withering disgrace to the United States: expresses the opinion thai "»oun<r money" ideas will be called old wives' fable? by the financial experts of the future; declares In favor of the suppres- " Bion of lynching and of work for the total suppression of the social evil aa opposed to its regulation, and calls womaft suffrage the greatest of all move* toward a. real republic.
