Burial of Hon. Wm. fVlnctom, the Late
Secretary of the Treasury.
Wi!M3SEPrC JFeb. 2. Th city
is truly , in mourning today. ' "The ex
ecutive deportments arid their branches
closed all day and congress did . not as
semble until 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
Flags on all public buildings . were dis
played at half mast, also those of the
hotels and business establishments
throughout the city. The treasury de
partment was heavily draped in black. ,
These honors were paid to the iriemory
of the late Secretary Windom, whose
remains were committed to their last
resting place today. The navy depart
ment and department of justice were
also draped in mourning in honor of ex
Secretary Bancroft and ex -Attorney
General Devens. The funeral was sim
ple in character and without the least
attempt at display, or ostentation ; the
only semblance to military honors was
the presence of sixteen members of the
treasury bench National guard district
who acted as body bearers, and marched
beside the hearse.
During the forenoon today the dead
secretary lay in an open casket in the
family drawing rooms. . The face of the
deceased wore a calm and peaceful ex
pression. . The sombre black covering of
the caskets was relieved by a profusion
of beantiful wreaths, and flowers in var
ious designs, the tributebf loving friends.
On the casket the only decorations
were a cross of palm leaves and crepe
of violets around upper part of the lid.
The services consisted of singing by
quartette and a number of prayers. Dr.
Hamlin reviewed the statesman's life.
At the conclusion of the church services
the- remains were conveyed to - Rock
Creek Cemetery, and there interred.
Floral offerings were beautiful and
numerous. At the house brief religious
services were conducted by Rev. .Dr.
Hamel, pastor of the Church of the
Covenant. These services were private,
the only persons present being members
of the afflicted family, near relatives, the
president, vice-president and members
of the cabinet with their ladies. The
funeral services at the Church of the
Covenant began at 12 oVlock.
While exceedingly simple they were
profoundly impressive. The attendance
comprised all the leading officials in
Washington and their families, includ
ing the President and cabinet, diplo
matic corps, justices of the supreme
court of claims, senators, representa
tives and officers of the army and navy
The Ohio society of New York was also
represented. The church was crowded.
Half Seas Over.
Washington, Feb. 2. Chief Justice
J-uller today announced that the Su
preme court had decided to grant the
petition of the counsel representing the
British government for leave to file ap
plication for writ of prohibition to pre
vent the District court of Alaska pro
ceeding to carry out its decree of forfeit
ure made -in the case of the schooner
Seyward, libelled for unlawfully taking
seals within the waters of Behrine sea
The order is made returnable on the
second Monday in April. This settles
the preliminary question of right to
Behring sea in the court and the matter
now to be settled is, whether or not the
court will decide that the writ of prohi
bition should issue.

Portland, Feb. 2. At a special meet
ing of the chamber of commerce today, a

Messrs. Cleveland and Hill Banquet To
. gether In Mew York.
New York, Jan. 31. At a dinner
given tonight at the Manhattan Club by
Senator William L. Brown to governors
of the club and a few guests, ex -President
Cleveland and Governor Hill met
face to face. The centennial banquet at
the Metropolitan opera house two years
ago was the occasion of their last meet
ing. Since then they have been as
strangers, and many things said and
written of the men only tended to
widen the breat h. To this condition of
affairs was due the great interest Jaken
4a heK meeting at the. dinner., tonjght,
ut.wuii bucuau nan n LI 1U 11 V it priYav
one. The general opinion was that one
or the other . of the gentlemen would
decline at the last moment, but both
men were there. Ex-President Cleve
land was there as -early as 7 o'clock, and
moved about shaking hands and con
versing in a most pleasant manner. At
a quarter to 8 dinner was served, and
the banqueters, thirty-two in number,
took seats. The table was in the form
of an oval. At the head of the table sat
Senator Brown with Lieutenant-Governor
Jones on his left, and a seat on
his right for Governor Hill, who had not
arrived. At the opposite end of the
table sat Fred R. Coudert, president of
the Manhattan Club. On his right sat
Mr. Cleveland, and on his left was Ben
J. Wood. At 10 o'clock Governor Hill
was announced. As- he entered every
one arose and applauded. The governor
advanced to his seat, bowed to Senator
Brown, then, looking at Cleveland, he
smiled and bowed to that individual,
who returned the salute, and then, with
a bow to the rest present, he sat down,
as did the others. No embarrassment
or ill-feeling was apparent in the actions
of either one of the two men who were
closely watched by all present. The
dinner and general conversation were
then resumed. It was understood at the
outset that no speeches were to be made.
- AX OLD' SURGEON'S VIEWS.
He Thinks the Indians Will be Peace
able at Pine Ktdge.
San Francisco, Jan. 31. Major W. H.
Gardner, surgeon United States army,
is the first medical officer who has re
turned from the seat of war at Pine Ridge,
having been ordered back to his station
at Angel island. The major has been in
the service about thirty years, and most
of the time he has been stationed right
in the Indian country.
"I am quite familiar with their cus
toms and habits," stated the surgeon to
day. "I am satisfied that there were
many causes which drove the reds on
the warpath. Like many of the lower
classes, they believe in the second com
ing of a 'Messiah' who is to make them
happy in every sense, but principally in
that which will please their appetites.
For a long while they had been insuffi
ciently fed, in fact, systematically
starved, so that they deemed it best to
get out and fight, preferring death in
that way to any other, Then it was that
the medicine man sprang up with the
"ghost shirt." He made them believe
that the shirt was impervious to bullets.
When the medicine man was found on
the field dead, with four bullet holes
through his Bhirt and the lead in his
breast, his theory received a severe shock
in the estimation of bis followers. I do
not believe, like many others, that the
recent trouble was stopped by bad
weather and that with next spring there
will be another outbreak. The Indians
have had a severe lesson taught them,
and thev will. I am sure, remain oiiiot
on their reservations."

Paris Jan. 31. Jean Louis Ernest
Meissonier, the celebrated painter, is
dead, age 76. He had been .suffering
from bronchitis for a fortnight.
1 T -r - . . .
jean ixuis xrneKt . .Meissonier was
born in Lyons, France, about 1814, and
went to Paris as a youth and entered
the studio of Leon Coquiet. He pro
duced several great works, among others;
"Le Petit Messager," which' since he
has become famous, has been greatly
valued. He was peculiar in his power
to give character to single figures and to
groups of figures either in violent action
or repose. His work is intellectual.
He has produced comparatively few
pieces, but each is a masterpiece of its
kind. Among his best known pieces are
the "Chess Players," "The English
Doctor," "The Reader," "The Painter
in his Studio," "The Guardhouse," "The
Bravos," "A man in Armor," "Napol
eon in Russia," "Charity." He has re
ceived high decorations and medals, and
in 1867 was made commander of
the Legion of Honor. Fine examples
of his art may be seen at several private
galleries in New York. His son Jean
Charles, is an artist, also a pupil of his
father, who has many imitators.

THE INDIAN SITUATION.
President Harrison Talks Abont Their
New York, Feb. 2. The World pub
lishes an interview with President
Harrison on the, Indian question in
which he says: "Some of grievances
are real and some are imaginary, and
some are inevitable consequences of our
form of government. In the' past years
he has often no boubt been robbed by
cattle rings, by agents and by traders,
but I do not believe he is robbed today.
I shall talk with the Sioux delegation
and if they desire council, I shall give
them a full hearing and if any wrongs
are presented they.will be met promptly
and thoroughly. I believe, however,
that the main grievance is one beyond
my control. The tardiness with which
congress has ratified the agreements
made with them by the Sioux commiss
ion two years ago and cutting down of
appropriation, recommended for current
years, but that they have been robbed
by agents, during my administration I
know personally it is not true. The matter
has been thoroughly eifted and the
charge found wanting."
Washington, Dec. 29. The free coin
age men are not so sanguine of success
as they were a few weeks ago, and they
do not seem to feel assured that they
can get the bill out of the committee.
This committee is now eight to four
against free coinage, and there the mat
ter rests. Speaker Reed has not seen
fit to recognize any one to move to take
the bill out of the hands of the committee,
although he has said he cannot see how
he can refuse such a request if it is made.
In refusing, he would not be more arbi
trary than Speaker Carlisle, who for
many months refused to recognize a
member to move the consideration of a
bill to reduce internal revenue taxes. It
may be safely said that the speaker has
not come to any definite conclusion in
Evidence In the Fur Seal
Seattle, Jan. 31. James G. Swan, of
Port Townsend, has obtained and pub
lishes affidavits of numerous sealers that
fur seals are born all along the coast and
that the pups can swim as soon as born.
If this can be proven, it will change the
whole Behring sea controversy, as it is
claimed now thai fur seals breed only on
certain islands and that the species
would be exterminated if hunters were
not excluded from Behring sea. Judge
Swan offers to prove the truth of his
statement to congress, or a federal com
mission. Fur seals were never so abund
ant at Cape Flattery as now. They are
found in myriads, and the Indians are
killing them bv hundreds.
Sullivan Drank Again.
Janesvii.le, Wis., Jan. 31. John L.
Sullivan last night terorized the mem
bers of his theratical company near
Harvard on his way to Freeport.. He in
sulted one of the women of his troupe,

possession of the train. When the train
stopped he drove all the passengers and
trainmen from the depot platform.
Traveling Passenger Agent Gibson, of
the Northwestern, finally coaxed him
into a private car and took him to Rock
ford to sober up.

A prominent physician and old army

from home for a few days ; during his ab
sence one of the children contracted a
severe cold and his wife bought a bottle
of Chamberlin's Cough Remedy for it.
They were so much pleased that they
afterwards used several bottles at var
