EX-SENATOR VAN WYCK DEAD Could Not Rally from a Second Stroke of Paralysis. WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.--Ex-United States Senator Charles H. Van Wyck, who Mon- day afternoon last suffered a second stroke of paralysis, died about 5 o'clock this aft- ernoon. Owing to the advanced age of Mr. Van Wyck, and the fact that it has been but three years since he was stricken down in a similar way on his farm near Nebraska City, it was hardly thought that he had any chance to recover from the second attack, notwithstanding that for the past two years he had been in comparably good health. The attack of Monday last was altogether without premonition and happened while the ex-Senator was apparently feeling in unusually good health and spirits, and just as he was about to partake of luncheon in company with his wife and daughter. Mrs. Van Wyck and her daughter, as- sisted by a nurse, were constantly in at- tendance upon him, and though he was in a state of semi-consciousness since he was stricken, they at times were buoyed up with a feeling that some slight improve- ment in his condition manifested itself. These hopes were, however, completely dispelled today, when it appeared evident that he was sinking rapidly, and just a short time before sunset he breathed his last. There will be no funeral services here. The body will be taken to Milford, Penn., to-morrow night at 10 o'clock for interment. There three of his children are buried.
