Preparations for the Funeral— The Remains to Be Taken to Philadelphia for Interment Special by the California Associated Press. Washington", April 13.— The death of Congressman Randall, although expected, caused general sorrow here to-day when it became known and especially among his colleagues and Senators. The half-masting of the flag on the Capitol gave the first in timation to the citizens' of the death, as only the family and Intimate friends and a little band of newspaper, men on guard knew it earlier. As soon as the patient had passed away Postmaster-General Wanamaker, who had remained at the bedside all night, came out and told the story of the end. THE LAST DOCKS. A Choking; Spasm nt 1 O'clock Followed by a Gradual Sinking. All of last night the patient was attacked frequently by sinking spoils. Fits of hic coughs followed. Though unconscious a greater part of the night, he was able to Just whisper his wants. Plum preserves appeared to relieve him. Just after 1 o'clock Mr. Kandall was seized with a vio lent choking spasm. The Postmaster-Gen eral sat beside him at the time and Dr. Mallan hastened to his aid. The physician removed a large piece of phlegm from his throat with his fingers alal the patient was thus enabled to toreutic more freely. »Vom this hour on his strength gradually failed, Mrs. Ran dall, her two Bisters, Sirs. Hyatt aud Mrs. Bwann, the ex-Spt-aker'g brother, Robert Randall, his daughters, Mrs. Lancaster and Miss Susie Randall, his son, Samuel J. Raudall Jr., and son-in-law, C. C. Lancas ter, and the Postina3ter-General, gathered about the death-bed. Just before 5 o'clock the patient convulsively seized Mr. Wana maker's hand and pressed it with all the strength he possessed. Mrs. Randall, completely overcome by grief, knelt at the bedside and sobbed as if her heart would break. Suddenly, Mr. Randall gasped, and his devoted wife looked up, and the dying husband and father for the hist time recog nized his beloved life partner. lie whis pered the single word "-mother," and .in an instant his spirit had fled. Mrs. Randall, who. until a few minutes before all was over, had borne up with the exfremest for titude, fell back into the arms of the Post master-General and had to be carried from the room. SENDEES OF SVSirAXHY. The rretident and Mrs. Harrison Visit ■ th« Afflicted Family. So soon as the news of the Ead event had reached the Capitol the Stars and Stripes were placed at half-mast on the roof of the house. Early in the morning President and Mrs. Harrison drove to the Randall residence, and both did what they could to comfort the afflicted family. The Vice- President and Mrs. Morton, Secretary and Mrs. Blame, Secretary Tracy (who but a little over two months ago was robbed by fire of his wife and daughter) and other members of the Cabinet, as well as Sena tors and Representatives, flocked to the house. But few were admitted, and those who were not simply left messages of sym pathy. The greatest sorrow is manifested, not only by Democrats but by Republicans, be cause of the departuie of the Keystone statesman, and telegrams of sympathy have been pouring in throughout the day and evening. FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS. The Remains to lie Taken to Philadel phia for Burial. The arrangements for the burial will probably be completed to-morrow.

The funeral services will, in ail probability, be public, and the remains, it is understood, will be taken to Walllngford, a Philadelphia suburb, for in terment, li<,th the Senate and House will probably adjourn to-morrow, out of respect to Mr. Kandall. Speaker Reed, ex-Speaker Carlisle, Mr. Mills, Major McKinley, Major Butterworth, Mr. Cannon, Senators Allison, Sherman, Ingalls, and indeed every leader in both House and Senate, regardless of party, re gard Mr. Randall's demise as they would the loss of a brother. However much they have differed from him in politics or upon any great issue, all are united in speaking of him as one of the grandest Lien of the Vint teenth c«ntory.

The Commander-in-chief Charged With Electioneering. St. Louis (Mo.), April 13.— General R. A. Alger, Coinuiander-iu-Chief of the G. A. EL, left this evening for the West The party will stop at Kansas City and Omaha aud then continue their trip across the conti nent. The Commander was royally enter tained by the Missouri Veterans, but now that lie is gone, aud in fact even while he was here, the political phases of his great "swing arouud the circle" were commented upon. It is so manifest that he is engaged in a hurrah campaign for the Presidency that there is no escapiug comment. One feature of his canvass is especially condemned, and tiiat is the employment of the widow of the late General John A. Logan, the idol of the Grand Army, to fur ther his political ambition. At his invita tion Mrs. Logan joined the party here, and there was a reception at which the ad mirers of "Black Jack" lashed themselves into a very frenzy of enthusiasm, all of which is expected to redound to the credit and glory of the Commander-in-Chief with the Presidential bee iv his bonnet Meantime it is said strong opposition has developed within the Grand Army to Gen eral Alger's scheme, and at the State En campment of Missouri, just closed at Jef ferson City, were three or more veterans from Kansas for the express purpose of op posiug the Alger boom. These men and ottiers will lollow him and direct all their energies toward counteracting the Influ ence of the comrade's presence by express ing what they and those behind them de nounce as "double dealing." It is charged that with the lank and file Alger talks iv flittering generalities iv favor of pensions and unlimited good things for the soldiers, while in private councils and with the. poli ticians he talks quite differently, nud, in fact, is on record as squarely opposing pen sions based solely on service, and in favor of measures that restrict the granting of pensions. Iv short, they charge him with demagogenry and carrying water in both shoulders. These aeents of Alger's oppo nents in the Grand Army have certamly done most elfective work in this State,.

Sacramento, April 13. —An inspec tion of tho crevice iv the Solo levee muda last September, shows that two-thirds of tlie volume of the river was flowing through in the tules, «n4 that when the water recedes to the low mark there will still be a heavy volume going through the break, while the bar below will have but two feet. \V.

Tho engineers have a fund of $110,000 at their disposal, and whether they see tit to close tho break or not, the dredg ing c;u! be done aud much of the threat ened damage be averted.

He Nearly Causes a Breach Be tween Two Families. An Anery Servant-Girl and an Angrier Mis tress—Trouble Averted by the Par rot's Interference. A parrot— nn ugly green one, with rumpled, scraggy (earners and a wicked gliut Id his red eyes— very near being the cause or a s n«a tional scene on Webster street tlie other day, I'ssidei creating a rupture between two respect able Western Addition families, who live In ad joining houses. Mr. Brown, by which name the head of one of the families may be termed, purchased Polly several days ago lor hi* wife, who bad expressed adeslie to become possessed of a good parrot. Folly was given a good character for peace and quietness, as well as moral love la language, by her owner. Mr. Hi own had heard ol wicked parrots creating confusion Id households by giving vent to questionable language which they had picked up In the course of an adventurous career. lie was determined that his parrot should be most thoroughly respectable. After the second day he was quite sure that he had not been deceived. Polly was demure Id bis demeanor, would chirp "Pretty Toll" and "Want a cracker" la a subdued tone of voice. In fact he seemed to be a model parrot, and no one In the neighborhood was aware of bis pres ence In the Brown household he was so quiet. AN AXQKY SEKVANT-HlttL. In Older to accustom him to the house as much as possible the parrot's cage was bung up In side the blinds at tlie window overlooking the yard of the Simmons', who lived next door. Poll could look out through the blinds, but could not be seen. On tin- third day of his arrival Poll was at his place, and Mrs. Simmons' hired girl was hanging up some doilies In the yard, suddenly she heard a voice proceed from Mrs. Urowu's wiadow; "Ho hang yourself, Hannah!" Now, It happened that the girl's name was Ilaunau, and sue looked up iv surprise at the window. she saw no one, but again ibe voice came: "KaH, rats. You've cot 'em agnlu. Hannah." Could it bo Airs. Brown speaking to her thus. Hannah was sure of It, because Mrs. Brown never had liked her, and " iced head, red head. Uj hang yourself Han nab," came the voice. MKS. SIMMONS TO THE FRONT. It was 100 much, and Hannah dashed Into the house and sought her mistress. With tears In her eyes she said Mrs. Brown bad insulted her. She related what had occurred, and claimed she saw Mrs. Brown's face at the blinds, which was a little lie on Hannah's part. Mis. Simmon* got quite angry, and .11 she had had several little neighborly " tills with Mrs. Biowu, she went down la the yard to remon strate with her neighbor. The first thing that greeted her as she reached the yaid was: '• Oh, you brazen thing, chase yourself." The voice unmistakably came from Mrs. Brown's window and in her shrill tone*. " Mrs. Brown," began Mrs. Simmons, " I — " "Chase yourself. Hang yourself. You're a thief." cried the voice mm the window. "Why, Mil. Brown-" "Ha. ha; you old cat. Go bang yourself. Ob, Hannah." Iv her rage Mrs. Simmons did not notice the tncohereucy of the remarks. She fairly screamed out: "I'll tell my husband of this, Mrs. Brown—" "Ah, you cat. lio hang yourself. Thief, tblef." SHE TOLD HEtt HUSBAND. Putting her lingers In her ears Mrs. Simmons ran into the nousi-. When her husband came home he found her In a hysterical st.ite of excitement. Shu told him all. " Why," said Simmons, " I'll go and see Brown and Mill out what's at the bottom of this If I have to flay him alive." He rushed out Into the yard and saw Brown in his back dour. He called to him, aud when Brown came over riled loudly: •' What does your figurehead of a wife mean by calling my wife a thl-f?" " rut do you mean?" queried Brown la sur prise. "Just what I say. Your wife has been calling my wife and servant names all day, and 1 want an apology." ■Are you crazy?" asked Brown. "No; but I'll make It warm for some on« for this day's work." "Look here ! I don't want any of your threats," said Brown, who was getting angry. THE PAKHOT BREAKS LOOSE. "Well, you'll set 'em," cited Simmons, putting up his lists. v • "Go it Suagsy. Slug him. Hang the thief," came iv shrill tones from the Brown window. "Hear that," routed Mutinous, furiously. Brown stepped back and looked at the window for a moment in amazement. "If it aiut that parrot," he cried. '•Hang yourself, d you," yelled the parrot, louder than ever. ; "He's a terror," went on Browu, "and that fel low said he was so quiet." "Have you got a parrot?" asked Simmons. "\ is; don't you hear the fiend. I'll wrlug bis neck." That settled It. Matters were very easily ex plained. The next day Brown took bis parrott, who, now that he was started, made the air blue with profanity, and sold Him to a saloon-keeper on the water front, where his language would Dot shock his bearers.

Their Miracu'ous Escape From Death— Se Hen and a Boy Severely Injured. A Driver's Careleuneii. Yesterday morning a party of twenty Italians, composed of men wilh their wives, children and female relatives, left this city for the purpose of visiting some friends who own a vegetable garden near Sun Auselmo, Matin County. After speudlug a day of pleasure they started to return home In me afternoon, They were driven to Sau Anselmo Station lv two express wagons. U.ie of the wagons contained the frinales of the party, aud in the other were nine men and two children. Botli patties were merry and lv high glee as they were driven to ibe depot In o-der to catch the 6:05 North Pacific Coasl Railroad train Iroin Sau Rafael. It was ciose upon the time (or the train to reach the station. Just the other sldo of the station the county road crosses the track. The wagon wilh the females was a good ways ahead of tho other vehicle, and v got across the tract and Its occmiuuts were left at the depot, where they stood awaiting the others. As the second wacon approached the track la charge ol uue of the men connected with the ranch, the train from Sau Kafael (Tierney, engi neer) came along. Wneu within eighty yards of the station the usual warning whistle was given and the bell ruug. The train was drawn by two locomotives. ( STUCCK BY THE TRAIN. Before the sound of the whistle had died away the man who was driving the second express wagon with the Italians In it, drove along the road at a rapid puce, and urn tbe two horses at tached to t!ie vehicle almost across the track be fore he discovered the approach of tne train. Ue evidently became confused, for lie applied the biakes lo tbe wagon. The action made It im possible to back away or advance wiili sufficient rapidity to prevent a collision. On came ihe train at a slackened rate of sneed and crashed into Hie wueoo with its load of bu nianlty, striking the vehicle on a line with the rear axle. The wagon was overturned amid the piercing cries of the men in it, and shrill shrieks Hud cues ol horror from Ibelr relatives oo tbe station platform and others who weie waiting there for the train. A scene ensued that fairly becgais di icrlpilon. Tne women at the station toro their balr and cried Iv wild despair, young children shrieked, and there was such a state of excitement that it seemed as if no one bad the power lo do any thing, except lo give vent to their borior. AS INJURED BOY. Although the engineer of the train saw the ac cident aud applied the air-brakes at once, the cars went ahead several hundred feet. As the train moved towaid the station the horror stricken spectators of the scene saw the bleeding form of a boy impaled on the cow-catcher, while on the pilot on the right side a man was hanging. There was a look of despair on bis face. Also hanging to the pilot was the shattered body of the wagon, and every moment, with the move ment of the train, It struck the man on the pilot. One of the horses was being rolled along like a ball by the second locomotive. When tne train was at last brought to a siaud'tlll the body of the wacou fell and me man with It. Willing hand* seized the boy ou the cow-catcher, and his limp form was carried to the station platform. tie proved to be Heury (Juueo of 015 Bay street, in this city. His mother was aiming ilia party at the depot, and when she saw him car ried along she believed be was dead, and gave vent to loud lamentations. She rushed forward and etubiaced him, calling him by name, ami saying 111 beitrt-ieuding tones: "lie Is dead." •■THANK GOD, HK LIVES." TUe scene bi ought tears to the eyes of many of tbe specimors. v lien blie dlscover«d mat be was sllil alive a smile appealed 10 light up her face, and slie lnurmured, '-Thank God, lie still lives." It was found that lie had sustained a fracture of the left leg, a dislocation of the left knee and a fiY.cturu of the nasal boue. In the meantime the railroad officials, passen- H", rs aud others rushed to the place where the collision took place. Those who bad occupied the wagon weie scattered arouud the ground In various attitudes. All were dazed, and, stianna as it may :.eem, none had been killed. Several bad beeu seveiely iujured. it was found thai Jobu H. Cliapai I, who lives on Keamy street In this city, bad sustained •eveie scalp wounds aud biuises about the body.

Carlos Mai quiet, who lives ou Keafuy street, was shaken up anci seveiely inj'.iud internally. TAKEN TO BAUSALITO. The officials of the company did all In their power under the circumstances for the injured ones. The were placed on the train, which then made a quick run to Sausalito, where medical attendance was obtained. Dr. f. W. Lux of this city was on the train, and when he was apprised of what had occurred he volunteered his ser vices and rendered aid to the Injured, lie tem porarily set aud bandaged the leg of the injured boy aud gave the others what assistance be could. A young lady member of the Sight Seers' Club, who was In the station awaiting the train, bad shortly before the accident been looking out ot the window facing the direction from which the train was coming, and when she saw the first load ot Italians coming said, "Here comes some more passengers." A moment afterward she remarked that another load was coming. To a Call repieae'ttatlve she stated mat when the second express-wagon approached, she saw the driver speed his noises across the trade ahead ot Hie train. The driver looked towaid the train before be had cleared the track, and she then saw him lean down and apply his brake. Then the collision occurred. When the brake was applied lie could not have backed away or goue ahead In time to escape the train. l'as»eogers on 111 ■ train aud those at the depot corroborated tills statement. THE ENGINEER'S STORY. Engineer Tierney, when questioned, said that be saw the wagon approaching the track, but did not suppose the man In charge would be foolhardy enough to cross the track, and while he was thinking the man made the attempt aud the collision occurred. He at once putouihe Drakes mid did all in bis power to bring the train to a standstill. Alter the accident and the Injured parties had been atleuik-d 10 It was discovered that the horses had been stripped of their harness, except their collars. Besides a tew bruises, neither .ml mal was Injured, and when the train moved away they were seen ruuuini; down the hill as if nothing bad happened. Upon arrival In this city the Injured Italians were taken to their respective homes. It was a source of comment among those who saw the ac cident that the entire paitvwasnot killed iu sUully by the collision. 'Their escape from death was truly miraculous. HIS TEMPORAL POWER. Eloquent Lecture ou the Pope's Earthly Possessions. A lecture In aid of the Children's Day Home was given last night by Itev. Father Rooney, O. 1., in St. Francis Church, cor ner Viiilejo street and Montgomery avenue. Before the lecture began a concert of sacred music was given by the following choir, under the direction ol Mrs. 11. J. Stewart: Mrs. A. B. Collins, Mrs. Sides, Misses Agnes J. O'Brien, Bella A. Brongham, Amelia O'Clair, Mary Fay, A. Travers, Lizzie Durham, Susie Hultlen, Dody Henueueriy, Angela Devlin. Clotilda Devlin, Maggie Brougham, M. Schaffer; Messrs. Harold Anderson, C. Clark, M Keilly, A. F. Woodbridge. Mrs. Stewart played an organ voluntary, after which '"Ingi-nusco," from Verdi's requiem, and selections from Kossini's "Stabat Mater," including the "intlamniatus" were rendered by the choir with charming execution and finish. Father Rooney began his discourse with an elcquent and striking introduction, and then taking up his subject, went on to say that the protecting hand of God is ever with th<» church, and that in Goo s own time the papacy shall appear triumphant before the wurld. The Pope is the vicar of Jesus Christ, the prefect of the house of God, Alelchi3edeck by holy orders, Jesus Christ by unction, castor of all pastors, mouth of Jesus Christ, the very foundation ou which God's church is built. He then quoted from the New Testament many ex pressions of Christ to St. Peter and the Apostles relating to their teachings and the Christian church. The temporal power of the Pope rests upon the luve and devotion of Christians for the Supreme Pontiff. In early days Christians laid their worldly possessions at the f uot of Peter, and when Constantino became a Christian he endowed churches of Rome, and since then the papacy has had its distinct territories. Its income whs used for the propagation of the faith, the alleviation of distress. The Pope saved Koine for many years from the hands of barbarian hordes who assailed Italy. Rome is nut the property of Italy; Home does not belong to Italy; It was given to the Church by the rightful owner, and belongs to the faithful Catholics all over the world. The temporal power of the Church re mains to-day, although its use is forbidden. It is in the hands of robbers, but it belongs to the Church still. The day will come as certainly us day succeeds night and night day when the temporal power shall be re stored to the papacy and the enemies of the Church driven from Koine. If the Pope lived in Paris his mandates would not be obeyed with good grace prob ably in Vienna, Berlin or Madrid and vice versa. "From the depths of our hearts," continued the speaker, " we tlianit the PRICE FIVE CENTS. great God that the Pope live 3in his owa dominions, far away from the courts of tha world. " The Pope hag too exalted an office to ba the subject ot an earthly king. He must b« free aud Independent to discharge to tha fullest extent the sacred prerogative of bis divine calling. Tha temporal power shall be restored, a papacy with all its rights and prerogatives shall continue to live foe ever." KILLED BY THE CARS. An Unknown Man Mangled at the Railroad Depot. At 10:50 o'clock yesterday morning th« Morgue officials were notified by telephone from the Southern Pacific Railway office* at Fourth and Townsend street that an un known man was lying dead upon the track* just fifty feet west from Fourth street. Deputy Coroners Magner and Smith went for the body and lound it under a covet alongside a freight shed where some o£ tho yard workmen had laid it. The man's akult \va* horribly crushed on one sid?, giving his head the appearance of a ma3s of man gled tlesh and bone. ilia l*ft hand tiuhtly shut, with muselei standing out rigidly from its surface, ws* close against the wound, and from this it was thought that he had been killed by a freiuht train or engine backing along tha yards, and In a struggle for life he had thrown up his arm to protect his head, When found his body was warm. Trains were moving and shunting ud and down at the depot all the morning, but no person had seen tho fatal accident, nor did the engineers know who was respousibts for the man's death. Deputy Coroner Mag ner took the name 3o£ the two engineers working in the yards and also o£ soma couplers and brakemeu, who will be called upon to give testimony at the inquest. The deceased was a man 45 to 5u years of age, above medium height aud had a rather thin and worn face. Apparently he was a laborer, dressed in a suit of dark-gray check tweed, which was little worn, and a blue flannel shirt. He wore/ 1 , soft felt hat. All that was found in his pockets was a key with a brass tag attached bearing the num ber seventy-one, such as are used in lodg ing-houses. Not a shred ol paper to tell who he was could bo discovered in search ing his clothes. Nobody identified him yesterday and ha is now on a Morgue slab awalliug identili cutlon. A HEADSTROG WOMAN. The Blethod Her Iluabnud Adopted to Give Her a Fright. A slender young man with a woe-begona expression upon his face wandered into the new City Hall Police Station the other evening. "Well," said the sergeant in charge, as be surveyed the new-comer, "what can I do for you?" "Lock me up, please," was the reply, ac companied by a sign of emotional intensity. "Luck you up? why, what have you done??" queried the sergeant. "Nothing, but I want to be locked up," persisted the man, sinking Into a chair and resting his head on his hand in a de jected way. "We're not in the habit of locking peopla up for nothing," replied the sergeant. "You had better lock hip up. for I may do something desperate. 1 dou t want to in juru her." "Her? Who is that." "My wire. I have had trouble with her and 1 came right down here to get locked up." " VVhat kind of trouble ?" "Every kind; she's so In adstrone 1 can't get along with her. Been married eight years now, aud it's been this way for nearly all that time. If she knows I'm set on anything, why she'll go the opposite way on purpose. No, to-night I told her my brother Tom lost his leg in the brittle of Frederieksburg when he was under General McClellan. She SDeered mid told me that McClellan was never in the battle of Fred orieksburg, and that it was General Sher man. Then I got mad aud told her that she was as ignorant of history as a lightuinii bug. She replied that she didn't believe my brother ever was iv a battle, and, if lie was, be 1' at his leg while running away. Now, ain't that aggravating? Who can put m> with such a woman?" " What did you do theu?" asked the ser geant. " i told her to look upon me for the last time aud rushed from the house." "Do you contemplate suicide?" "No." with a sigh, "but lam going to give her a fright?" "How?" "I want you to lock tue up on a chatge of murder. When she hears of my beiun in prison it will give her such a fright that she 11 never contradict me again. I'm not headstrong and don't contradict every thing she says. Why, I give in to her, aud even admitted the other day that her father did not peddle rags and bottles but was a junk-dealer, so lock me up." "Sorry we can't do it," said the sergeant decidedly. "Charge me with petty larceny, burglary or anytliiug." "It can't de done." "Pl.-ase do," pleaded the man. "Wont you help me break that woman's spirit?" ' No; I'm not paid for that," was the cold rejoinder. " Take me in for vagrancy," was the next tearful appeal. "Can't. You've eot a home." "Well, if I can't stop here I'll stay away to-night and I'll send her word that I was locked up. I'll give her a scare if it costs 520. She isn't going to insinuate that my brother Tom was a coward. I can atand anything but that." Then the sad-faced man drifted out iuto the cold night air. George's Disciples. James H. Barry addressed a large as sembly nf single -tax advocates at St. Geurgn's Hall last night. His subject was "The Unemployed, Trades Unions and the Single Tax." He held that the unions failed to accomplish their object on account of the great numbers of idle men who rush In when ever the unions are called upon to battle for their principles, and employers who are forever shouting for home industry are ever ready to enrich themselves at the expense of their workmen. Ho said that a few year* ago the iron-manufacturers of this city were howling for protection against Europe, and are now importing meu from Europe to all their foundries. A tax imposed uDon hind value* would, he thought, relieve the strain upon labor by throwing open vast areas of land to set. tlement and thereby decreasing the number of men who are seeking for employment iii the cities. The audience was entertained by Mrs. Hossach, Mrs. Muluner, Miss Grace Isley and George Aspden. A nnual Election.
