Death of the Vice-President.
The whole country was startled on Mon-
a.v morning bv the intelligence of the
sudden death of Vice-President Wilson
Although he had beeu removed from the
flsnitol building, he was supposed to be
recovering from his late attack. He re
tired earh on Sunday night and at mid
night arose and took a few steps about
tho room. He then read a few verses
from a little hymn-Look which hag been his
constant companion during his illness, and
which contained photographs of his wife
nd Bon. after which he dropped asleep. He
woke again at about 3 o'clock, complain
in" of a pain, and was rubbed bv one of
the watchmen. Mr. Wilson thanked the
mai for his attention and spoke gratefully
of the kindness he bad experienced from
everybody about him. Soon afterward
he fell asleep and rested quietly until
o'clock, when he awoke and said he felt
better than at any other time since his
attack. He asked for his customary glass
of bitter water, ami drank it. Immediate
ly afterward he lay back on the pillow

then, at twenty minutes past 7 o'clock,

to avoid such calamities, fires will still
occur ; and it is to the interest of all,
whether private citizens or public offi
cials, to be as far as possible fully pre
pared for such terrible emergencies. The
convention of Chief Engineers of Fire
Departments which met last summer was
composed of men experienced in their
vocation, and it did much that was uset
ful. The decisions of such a body of
men mean something. The chief engin
eers are usually persons of weight and
influence in their respective departments.
They are consulted and their opinions
often taken on the introduction of new
systems and apparatus for suppressing
fires, and on the protections and precau
tions best adapted to prevent fires. They
are the men largely responsible for the
standard of efficiency and discipline main
tained in their departments. Acting to
gether intelligently in their annual con
ventions, they are enabled, by a compari

Briefly, for the benefit of those who havo
seen no account of it, we will state the
case : Gaibord Was a French Catholic,
residing in Montreal, and owned a burial
plat in a Catholic cemetery, where his
wife was buried ; but to which, his own
body, after bis death, was denied admit
tance on the ground of his having become
a nrotestant before his death. A long
and vexatious contest iu the courts of
Canada grow out of this refusal on tho
part of the Catholics in possession of the
eemetry, and aftor legal decision was giv

deceased Guibord, they were forcibly pre

was struck until ono was found with
which the bridge was in sympathy, when
tho bridge began to shakr violently and

the unexpected result and ordered the
