and daughter, Mrs. E. F. Andrews, of

train from Harrisbnrg. He was met at
the station by. Assistant Postmaster
General Jones, a near personal friend of
the family, He joined hie mother at the
Arlington hotel, and they were given
nch privacy as possible. ' .
Mrs. Gresham is broken in spirits and
body by her affliction and constant vigils
p to the moment of her . husband's
death. Her daughter, Mrs. Andrews,
and another relative, Mrs. Captain Fuller
were with her constantly last night.': ':
It is the present intention of the family
as communicated to personal friends, to
have Secretary Gresham buried in Chi
cago. A special train will be provided,
one car to bear the remains and another
for Mrs. Gresham and . immediate rela
tions.' These arrangements, however,
are subject to such , changes as Mrs.
Gresham may desire.
The body has been embalmed and laid
out in the sleeping-room, where death
occurred. . A metallic coffin is to be cov
ered with black cloth, with heavy oxy
dised silver handles and the usual plate
for the name and circumstance of birth
and death. It was decided at noon that
the remains of the dead secretary shall
lie in state at the executive mansion to
morrow. The casket will be taken from
the Arlington hotel to the white house at
a. m., and be placed in the large east
, room, where funeral services will be con
ducted at 10 o'clock. The body will re
main there until the departure for Chi

ton, Attorney-General Olney and Postmaster-General
Wilson will act as hon
orary pallbearers. Bishop Hurst, of the
M. E. church, will conduct the funeral
setvices at the white house. All troops
and marines in the city will escort the
body to the funeral train, the procession
forming about noon.
The, president and Mrs. Cleveland
ealled at the Arlington at 11 o'clock to
see members of Secretary Gresham's
family, and- tender their Bympatby.
They drove over from 4he White House
in an open carriage, with no attendants
but the driver on the box. ' Attorney-
General Olney and Secretaries Lamont
and Herbert arrived at about the same
time to confer about arrangements for
the funeral. The president and Mrs.
Cleveland were in the Gresham apart
ments for half an hour. ; - -
All members of the cabinet in the
city,. Secretary' Carlisle, 'being absent,
called at the Arlington early in the day
and ' most of the ladies of the cabinet
circle also were admitted to the parlor
adjoining the family apartments of the
late secretary., - Secretary and Mrs. La
mont were at the hotel a long time. . .
- Most of the prominent men of public
life called at the hotel early in the day,
leaving cards. A flood of telegrams and
cablegrams continued to pour in during

.Nw Yobk, May 28. A Morning
Journal special from Washington says
Katarally there is ' much speculation
a to the successor of Secretary Gresham
in the state department. The index
finger of every public man in Washing
ton points to ex-Secretary of the Navy
William C. Whitney, Just how far the
possibility of bis selection by the presi
dent at this juncture can be traced is
not determined, but in the conversation
of public men In Washington at the
present time the belief is expressed that
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
v u i r
that there is no roan sufficiently promin- '
ent in public affairs whose nomination
would be so thoroughly in accord with
public opinion, both outside and inside
of the approving power of the senate,
as that of ex-Secretary Whitney. , -.,
It is a singular fact that upon the lips
of almost every one asked here in Wash
ington for their opinion as to who might
properly be Secretary Gresham's succes
sor, the reply is "Whitney.', or ex Sec
retary Whitney,", or "ex-Secretary of
the Navy Whitney." Mr. Whitney is a
Yale college graduate. He has been
unerring in his lines of social obser
vances, and left Washington with, a
kindly glow of general benevolence, good
will and a remembrance of superb
Americanism behind him. He is look
ed upon from this center today' as the
most desirable successor to Mr. Gresham.
Prosperity of the Tobueo-Growlnc In-
d uetry . '
San Francisco, May 28. The to
bacco-growing industry in this state is
abont to undergo a wave of prosperity.
according to J. D. Culp, a prominent to
bacco-grower ot San Felipe, Santa Clara
valley. He claims that California is
bound to become one of the best tobacco
producing states in the Union. - Recent
ly he bought the matter to the attention
of the committee on new industries of
the Manufacturers' Producers' Associa
tion. Messrs. Eaberg, Flagman, Lewie
and Snltan have been appointed a com
mittee to interview local manufacturers
and ascertain what can be done to de
velop the industry. . Mr. Cnlp says he is
already making big shipments of leaf
tobacco to- Eastern manufacturers.
Some time ago an English syndicate
offered him $300,000 for his plant and
his method of curing the leaf.,
In speaking of bis experience in rais
ing tobacco on California land Mr. Culp
said:-.'.'. ....... . .. , i .' ..
While I consider that it would be folly
to , attempt - to raise cigar tobacco on
some of the land of this state, I am con
vinced that California can become first
among the tobacco-producing states. A
conservative estimate as to the amount
of tobacco grown in this state per acre is
1000 pounds ; a reasonable price for it is
25 cents per pound, and a liberal allow
ance for handling, growing and shipping
would be $100 per acre, leaving a balance
in favor of the grower of $150 per acre."
Chicago, May 28. Wheat had a wild
bull opening today, and within five min
utes from the tap of the bell was selling
2 cents higher than the price at which
it. closed yesterday. Inside of another
five minutes it bad lost ljjjc of the gain.
The news was all of a bullish character.
Yesterday's low barometer in the North
west had resulted only in a light shower
here and there, and the cold wave was
being followed by what promised to be a
scorching 'hot one. Perhaps the most
bullish piece of news, however, was the
report of King & Company, of Toledo,
who summarized the . advices of over
4000 correspondents in the wheat belt.by
saying indications were that in six of the
principal wheat :, producing states not
more than half an average, crop would
be raised. ' .
I ITor of the Gold Standard.
Nxw.Yokk, May 28. A London cable
gram to the Evening Post., says; Sir
William Vernon Harcourt, chancellor of
the exchequer, has forwarded by influ
ential bankers and financiers,' in terms
emphasising his previous strong remarks
in favor of the gold standard. His re
ply , concludes thus ;. 'You may rely
