The funeral of General William Henry Browne, the well-known Washingtonian, and veteran of the Mexican and civil wars, who died last Saturday at Charlestown, W.Va., where he was spend- ing the summer with his wife, will be held this morning at 11 o'clock at St. John's Episcopal Church, corner of Sixteenth and H Streets northwest. The commandary of the District of Columbia, Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, of which General Browne was a prominent member, will attend the services in full uniform. Interment will occur at Arling- ton. General Browne was well known in Washington, where he had resided since the war. During this time he attained considerable reputation as a lawyer. His particular specialty in the practice of law was in trade-mark cases. He was the author of an excellect treatise on the sub- ject under the title of "Browne on Trade- Marks." For the past seven years his health has been delicate, but it was not until two years ago that he began actually to fail. His death was sudden and pain- less. General Browne was well known in the professional, political, and business life of the capital. For several years he served as a member of the Washington School Board, and was the author of a number of improvements in the public educational system. He was for many years a member of the Army and Navy Club. He was also a member of the Dis- trict Bar Association, and at one time commander of Columbia Commandery Kights Templar, of which President Gar- field was also a member, and he accom- panied the commandery when it acted as an escort for the body of the dead Presi- dent when he was taken to Cleveland from Washington after his assassination. He was active in the Grand Army of the Republic having belonged to John A. Raw- lings Post. He was also a member of two secret societies, the Scottish Rite Masons and Lafayette Lodge, F.A. and A.M. General Browne always took an active interest in religious affairs. He was a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church. At Epiphany Church for a num- ber of years he taught a large Bible class of young men. He assisted in the found- ing of St. Andrew's. General Browne was of English de- scent. His father was an officer of the English army, as was his grandfather. He resigned from the royal service in order that he might be able to provide a more settled home for his family. He had studied law before entering the army, and thought that the United States would be a good field for him. Consequently he came to New York. General Winfield Scott was a warm personal friend of the family, and when the war with Mexico broke out and the spirit of warfare engendered by the boy's ancestors began to manifest it- self, General Scott secured a commission as second lieutenant for William Henry Browne who was by then but eighteen years old. He fought in all the principal battles of that war and distinguished himself by gallant conduct on several occasions. After the Mexican war he returned to New York and studied law, in the prac- tice of which he afterward engaged. Be- fore he was thirty years old he became prominent in politics and was a candidate for several municipal offices. When the civil war opened he left a lucrative prac- tice and raised at his own expense a number of companies of troops and went to the front as lieutenant colonel of the Thirty-first New York Volunteers. He was soon promoted to the colonelcy of an- other regiment and at the second Fred- ericksburg battle he was in command of a brigade, and was wounded severely. This was the wound that affected his health in after life. From that time until the end of the war he was an officer in the reserve force. After the war he re- ceived the brevet rank of brigadier general. For a time he was a resident of Baltimore and held a number of important public trusts. Then he removed to Washington, where he biuilt up a lucrative prac- tice. He leaves a wife but no children.
