CHARLES A. CAPPA DEAD.
Sudden End of tlie Famous Leader—Death
Caused by Heart Trouble.
New York, Jan. B.—Charles A. Cappo,
the famous leader of the Seventh Regi
ment Band, died at 2:80 o'clock Sat
urday morning at his home, No.
123 East Ninety-second street, New
York. Although he had been sick for j
some time his family and friends did not I
anticipate a fatal termination of his ill- j
Hess and the end was sudden and unex- |
peeted. Cappa overtaxed himself upon
his trip to the Tacoma exposition and I
the hal'd work attending it made him .
especially susceptible to the cold which |
he caught in the Columbian celebration, j
The severe fits of coughing which ac-1
companied it aggravated a heart affec- '
lion with which he was suffering, and
about two months ago Drs. Janeway and |
Valentine his physicians, ordered him to j
cease attending to business and keep
quiet. Since then he has remained at
home rarely leaving it except for a short ;
walk. On Wednesday night he seemed
to be especially cheerful and passed a
pleasant evening with the members of
- his family. Shortly before 2 o’clock he
j arose, complained of a suffocating sensa
tion and staggered across the room to
1 the window which he opened, and then
I dropped into a chair. Mrs. Cappa be
[ came alarmed, and calling her children,
| sent for Dr. Sprague, who lives near, but
|by the time he arrived Cappa had lost
I consciousness and shortly afterward
i passed away.
The news of his death reached the .
I baud about 3 o'clock at IJederkranz
I Hall, where they were playing at the
’Bachelors’ Ball, and they immediately
l folded their music and left the hall.
A'appa's death, coming so close on Gil
' more’s is a severe sbis'k to the thousands
| of people who have listened with delight
ito the music of the famous bauds. The
arrangements for the funeral had not
i been completed yesterday, but is was
thought that it would be a military one.
Charles A. Cappa was born in 1834 at
I Alessandria, in the kindom of Sardina.
' His father was a major of the Eleventh
infantry in the Sardian army, and was
with Napoleon in his Russian campaign.
Cappa entered the Royal Academy of
Asti when ten years old, and remained
I there for five years when he enlisted in
the band of the Sixth Dancers.
I He remained in the army for six years
as first trombone in the band, when he
: enlisted in the United states Navy and
made a two years' cruise in the frigate
Congress, during the last six months of
which he was leader of the band. On
his arrival here on February 22, 1858,
he joined “Ned" Kendall’s Band. Soon
niterward he became a member of Shel

themselves, through their immediate rep

fairs. In further recognition of this prin
ciple. and of the steadfast devotion of our
people to home rule, as seen in the forma
tion and history of our commonwealth,
I earnestly recommend that whenever
and wherever possible, the right of local
self-government shall be left in or re

j The highest authorities were then
i quoted in support of this position, and to
' establish the fact that the political sys
■ tern instituted by the fathers was based
upon the principles here stated. Sum
ming up the general statements made by
jurists, historians, and statesmen upon
this subject, the governor passed on to
explain why he had emphasized so strong
ly the necessity of a high regard for the
lofty principles involved.
He pointed to the vicious tendency de
veloped in recent years, and based upon
partisan greed, to violate the provisions
of the sacred covenant given to the
people at the beginning.
"The belief is held by some of our cit
izens that, if municipal machinery seems
fqr the moment to be out of gear, the
proper remedy is, not to appeal to their
fellow citizens to rep>aii- it, but to the
legislature to take control of it. But
state assumption of municipal functions
cannot be as wholesome, just or effec
tive as self-correotion of municipal abuses,
and the latter is certain unless our people
have lost the capacity and desire for good
government and self-government.’’
The most flagrant violation of the prin
ciple of self-government, as he pointed
out, was to be found in the unhealthy
meddling of the legislature in the domes
tic concerns of Boston. He said:
"Against the wish of a great majority
of her citizens and the protest of most
of her representation in the legislature,
other members representing constituencies
under no pecuniary responsibility for its
support and no moral responsibility for
its sufficiency, placed the police force of
Boston in the hands of state commis
sioners and authorized them by requisi
tion to compel that city to raise by taxa
tion whatever sum in their sovereign
judgment was necessary.
“Since then the citizens of Boston, rep
resenting one-fifth of the population of
the commonwealth, have had no power
whatever over this most important exe
cutive branch of their government, no
voice in the enforcement of law, the pre
servation of peace, and the protection of
life and liberty, and property Whatever
abuses may exist, however inefficient,
partisan, and scandalous such administra
tion may be, however coercive or unprin
cipled iu its dealings with the interests
under its control, however detrimental to
Boston and the welfare of Iler citizens,
they must patient)}' submit to any wrongs,
content to agitate and protest, powerless
to remedy or to punish.
“No self-respecting community in the
commonwealth, after living and prosper
ing under the blessings of liberty and
self-government, would permit without
emphatic protest such violations of their
rights; nor is it easy to see why they
should iuliiet or tolerate it upon their
neighbors. Naturally and fortunately,
such a wide departure from the spirit of
our institutions and the teachings of our
fathers has brought only • vil results. A
law founded on a mis-ti" of the people
removing government beyond their reach
and officials beyond their control, is cer
tainly to lend to grave abuses. Such lias
Ihm'U our experience with state control of
the police of Boston. The Board of Po
lice. by its acts, has deservedly lost the
confidence of the citizens of Boston and
of the people of the commonwealth.”
The Police Board was virtually an issue
in the campaign. The governor, as read
ers of Tile Times are aware, declared
that lie would, if elected, make a change
in the personnel of that body, and he
asked that the people take the question
under their careful consideration. They
re-elected him partly upon that issue, and
now it remains to lie seen whether the
executive council will allow him to carry
out his own pledge and obey the man
date of the sovereign electors.
There is in his message a suspicion or
hint that be expects to be thwarted in
that purpose by his constitutional ad
visers and be readily attacks the an
tiquated and , anarehronisti? body, and
recommends its extinction by an amend
ment to the constitution. Vpou this
I point be offers the following suggestion:
“Another year’s experience lias only
shown more clearly the danger, friction
and irresponsibility of our present sys
tem; the absence of proper power iu the
governor, and so of responsible control
jin the people. Another year of publie
discussion of this important question,
with past experience us an object lesson,
has on a direct appeal to the people
shown. I believe, their dissatisfaction
and demand for a change.
“The question of continuing in our ex- I

Prominent Clubmen who Are Said- to Bo
St. Louis. Jan. B.—When the sensa
tional arrest of Henry 11. Morgan was
made, Mr. Morgan, in speaking of the
probable divorce proceedings, referred
mysteriously to "three prominent club
men’' who would likely be named in his
petition or cross bill as corespondents.

Mrs. Morgan, ami the announcement by
Mr. Morgan that he would light the ease

man and a singer of considerable note,

Harry Walker' is connected with the

' When Wayman Meth-eery was seen he
frankly admitted that he had heard that
his name was to be used in connection

at Mrs. Morgans residence about six
weeks ago. A Mr. Andrews, of Louis

the company that pays you your wages,
well and good. It is not necessary to

The company reserves the right to con

Altogether there were twenty-three
union men. Ten were discharged and
the remainder withdrew from the union.
It leaks out in connection with the Penn
sylvania Central affair here, that where
there were nine members of the order
of Railway Telegraphers on the Indian
apolis division thi-ee weeks ago, but
three are left and these expect dismissal
within 24 hours. Thus it is plainly evi

and will inelude engineers, firemen, brake
men, conductors, switchmen and even
freight handlers. In other words every
department of labor on the road banding
themselves into a body for mutual bene
fit will be asked to quit their jobs or
their secret orders.
DENIES THE STORY
That He Expects to Control the Patronage
Washington, Jan. 7—Special.)—Sena
tor Gordon returned from Georgia this
morning. He said the story to the effect
that he Lad made out a slate of all the
Georgia offices and that he expects to
control the patronage of Georgians with
out the co-operation of other Georgia
congressmen, is not true. He says he
has made out no slate, but when he
has patronage to dispose of, instead of
delaying matters and being beseiged by
hundreds of candidates when he knows
just who he favors for each office, he
has committed himself to his friends for
many Georgia offices. Here is a list
of men he is committed to for the chief
offices in Georgia:
R. L. Barry, of DeKalb, for marshal
of the northern district.
Frank Leverett, of Putnam, for mar- 1
shal of the southern district.
Joe James, of Douglas, for district at
torm y of the northern district.
E. H. Calloway, of Burke, for dij
triet attorney of the southern district.
N. J. Oatis, of Muscogee, for collector
of internal revenue.
For postmaster at Atlanta. Senator
Gordon prefers Mr. J. W. Renfroe, but
in this matter will co-operate with Col.
Livingston who will control the appoint
ment of a postmaster at Atlanta.—E. W.
