NEW YOIIK, Jan. 30.—Secretary Win- tlora died suddenly here Thursday night from heart disease. Just as the Secretary concluded his speech at the Board of Trade dinner ho grow deathly pale, his eyes shut and opened spasmodically, and he fell inert on his chair. Thence ho slipped to the floor where he lay unconscious. The most intense excitement immediately ensued. Judge A rnoux, ex- Secretary Bayard and Captain Snow were the first of several who ran to Mr. Windom's aid. They found him apparently unconscious. They lifted him gently and carried him into an anteroom, where several physicians proceeded at once to his assistance, but it was found that he was dead. Ills had been the first toast of the evening. He had finished his response.had seated himself, swooned at once and died almost instantly. Every effort to restore him was made, but in vain. He died of heart disease. The great assemblage at once dissolved. Mr. Windom had been the only speaker, and the sentiment to which he responded was: "Our Country's Prosperity Dependent Upon Its Instruments of Commerce." it was to have been a night of feasting and flow of soul at Delmonico's. The New York Board of Trade and WILLIAM WISDOM. Transportation was. to sit at its nineteenth annual dinner, and the great hall was bright with light and color. The dinner, which began at C o'clock, was completed shortly after 9 o'clock, and Mr. Windom, introduced by Judge Arnoux, who acted as toastmaster, arose to speak, being the first speaker of the evening. He responded to the toast: "Our Country's Prosperity Dependent Upon Its Instruments of Commerce." He finished his speech at 9:55 o'clock. It had been remarked that he was reading it oft' hurriedly from the printed copy, going faster and faster as he neared the end, and at the last he had requested the audience not to applaud. A quiver of fear shot through the assemblage like an electric shock as the speaker finished. Mr. Windom was standing erect under the glare of the gas lights, while the faces of the most famous body of men in the country were turned toward him. Something was the matter. They knew not what. For a moment the Secretary of the Treasury stood silent while the banqueters, equally silent, watched him. It was a moment that no one who was present will ever forget. Then Mr. Windom sat down quietly, too quietly many thought, in his seat, and Toastmaster Judge Arnoux arose to introduce ex- Secretary of State Bayard as the next speaker. He began a short speech, but had not proceeded far when Mr. Windom gave a short, sharp moan of anguish and fell back in his chair. His face grew purple. His lower limbs stiffened and stretched out of their own accord, apparently, under the table. His eyelids opened and slmt spasmodically, but there was no gleam of intelligence in the eyes, which were rapidly losing the luster of life. The cigar which he had been smoking was held in the grim clinch of the teeth. For only a moment he appeared thus. A ciy went up from those Bitting near the guests' table: "Look, look at Mr. Windom!" Every eye was turned toward the man whose voice had just ceased. At the rear of the hall many stood, and many echoed the cry as Mr. Windom collapsed in his chair and was falling to the floor. His face was ghastly and a cry of horror arose from the late festive banqueters. There was an immediate rush on the part of all toward Mr. Windom's chair, biit several doctors who were present at the dinner got the.re first and drove the others back. They were Drs. S. A. Kobinson, Durant, Whitney, Fisher and Bishop. Dr. Robinson bent down, and, making a close examination of the prostrate form, discovered that the heart was yet beating, and, with the assistance of Judge Truax, Captain Snow and one or two others, lifted him to his feet, deathly pale. He was carried into the room behind the banquet hall and every thing was done to resuscitate him. Messengers were hastily dispatched for electric batteries, and as many as four were applied to his body, which was rapidly growing cold. This was exactly 10:05 p. in. For six minutes the electric shocks were applied incessantly, but without success. He was pronounced dead by Drs. Robinson and Durant. "I would say that the cause of his death was apoplexy," said Dr. Robinson, "if it was not for the history of heart disease. I am inclined to think that heart disease killed him. Mr. Windom was subject to fits of heart failure. Tuesday hist lie was seized with an attack while on the steps of the Treasury at Washington, but he did not lose consciousness and was able to take care of himself." When it was officially announced that the Secretary was dead Secretary Tracy at once went to the nearest telegraph office aud sent a message to President Harrison informing him of the untimely event and reqviestlng Mffli to communicate with Mrs. Windoin. 1'he following death certificate was issued: ' "We hereby certify that Hon. William Windom, Secretary of tho United States treasury, died at Bolmonico's, corner of Twenty-stxth street and Fifth avenue, at New York Oity, about 10 o'clock and 11 minutes p. m., on January 29, 1801, niicl we further certify that tho cause of hia death wus, first, cerebral hemorrhage, and second, coma. "E. J. WHITNEY, M. D., "100 Lafayette avenue, Brooklyn. "S. A. ROBINSON, M. D., "West Brighton, L. I." Undertaker Ilnyler, of Grace Church, was summoned and was put in charge of the remains. The body was taken to room 25 of the Fifth Avenue Hotel/ Secretary Tracy and Attorney-General Miller awaited at the hotel to receive the remains. President Snow telegraphed to President Harrison that the body woxild be sent on to Washington on a special train in the morning. He appointed as a committee to escort the remains: Ambrose Snow, Darwin R. James, F. B. Thurber, W. II. Wiley, Seth Thomas aud Norman S. Bentley. THE NKVfa AT THE CAPITAL. WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.—The announcement of the sudden death of Secretary Windoin in New York gave almost as great a shock to his official friends and associates here as did the shooting of President Garfiekl to the members of his official household. It was so terribly sudden and unexpected that all who heard the news were profoundly shocked and so overcome as to be unable to express the grief they felt. As soon as the telegram bearing the sad intelligence was received by the Associated Press its contents were immediately communicated to President Harrison at the White House. He was in the library at the time, talking with Mrs. Harrison, and when the message was read to him he was greatly distressed and almost completely overcome. He immediately ordered his carriage and went at once to the house of the Postmaster-General, but a few blocks away, where a Cabinet dinner had been in progress and from which he had returned but a few minutes before. A reception had followed the dinner, so the guests had not dispersed. Mrs. Windom and her two daughters and Mrs. Colgate, of New York, who is visiting them, were among those present at the reception. As soon as the President arrived he had a hurried conversation with Secretaries Blaine and Proctor and the Postmaster- General and told them of the grief that had befallen them. They then privately informed Mrs. Colgate of Mr. Windom's death, and she, without exciting the suspicions of Mrs. Windom and her daughters, succeeded in getting them to their carriage and home. The President, Secretary Proctor and Postmaster-General Wanamaker entered a carriage and followed directly after. When Mrs. Windom and her daughters reached the house Mrs. Colgate gently broke the dreadful news. Mrs. Windom was completely overcome and had to be assisted to her chamber. The shock was a terrible one, as when the Secretary left Washington in the morning he seemed in the best of health and spirits. The President and the members of his Cabinet who were present extended their sympathy to the stricken family and offered their services to them. Official information of the death came in a telegram from Secretary Tracy and Attorney-General Miller, who were present at the banquet. It said: "Secretary Windom having concluded his speech, and while the next speaker was being announced, sunk down with an attack of heart disease and died within ten minutes. His death occurred at 10 o'clock. You will know how to convey the intelligence to his family." To this the President immediately replied, saying that he was greatly shocked and asking them to take charge of the body and bring it to Washington as early aspossible. SKETCH OF HIS CAREER. William Windom was born in Belmont County, O., May 10, 1827. He received an academic education, studied law at Mount Vernon, O., and was admitted to the bar in 1850. In 1853 he became prosecuting attorney for Knox County, but in 1855 removed to Minnesota, and was chosen to Congress for the term beginning March 4, 1859. Ho wus ro- elecled thereafter every two years until 18U9, serving with credit to himself and his State through the period of the civil war and reconstruction. In the lower House, owing to his familiarity with the red men, he served two terms as chairman of the committee on Indian affairs, and was also at the head of the special committee to visit the Western tribes in 1865 and of that on the conduct of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs in 1867. In 1870 he was appointed to tho United States Senate to (ill the unexpired term of Daniel S. Norton, deceased, and he was subsequently chosen for the term that ended in 1877. He was re-elected for the one that closed in 1883, but resigned in 1881 to enter the Cabinet of President Garfleld as Secretary of the Treasury but, retired on the accession of President Arthur in the same year. The vacancy was lilled during the called session of that year by Alonzo 3. Edgerton, under executive appointment. In October of the same year, after Mr. Windom's withdrawal from the Treasury on the deuth of President Gartteld, he was elected by the Minnesota Legislature to flll the vacancy caused by his resignation early in the year, and he served until the close of the term in 1883. Mr. Windom was a candidate for the Presidency before the Republican convention of 1880, the Minnesota delegation casting their ten votes for him until the twenty-ninth ballot, when some of the votes were transferred to Mr. Blaine. Three delegates voted for him until the close of the balloting. After his retirement from the Senate in 1883 Mr. Windom spent his time between Minnesota and New- York, practicing law aud attending to business interests, until called to the Treasury portfolio by President Harrison.
