OBITUARY.

WILLIAM ALLING.

WILLIAM ALLING, one of the pioneer booksellers of western New York, died at his residence in Rochester, N. Y., July 13. He was born March 3, 1811, at Ballston, N. Y., and four years later his parents removed to Sodus, N. Y., where he lived until 1826. In that year he went to Rochester with an elder brother and found his first employment in a restaurant kept by Mr. Matthews. In 1831 he entered the bookstore of Marshall & Dean as clerk, and four years later, in company with Samuel D. Porter and David Hoyt, he as sumed the proprietorship of the business at the same stand, 10 and 12 Exchange Street. In 1837 Messrs. Porter and Hoyt retired, and Mr. Alling carried on the business alone until 1859. In that year his oldest son, William S. Alling, and David Cory were admitted to partnership. The former died in 1872. Nine years afterward a younger son, Joseph T. Alling, was taken into the firm. During this time the character of the business was considerably changed. At the first a great deal of work in the book publishing line was done. The first history of Rochester ever published was turned out by this firm. By degrees the publishing department of the business was dropped and the firm gave its whole attention to the wholesale paper trade. The building now occupied by the firm of Williamson & Higbie was erected by the deceased in 1871, and 12 years later he built the large brick structure at present occupied by the firm of Alling & Cory.

Mr. Alling was twice married. His first wife was Miss Martha Sparhawk, whom he married in 1836 at Rochester, Vermont. In 1853 he married Miss Clementine Tilden, who survives him. Two sons and two daughters-Mrs. John W. Goss, of Spokane Falls, Washington, and Miss Louise, Fred. D., and Joseph T. Alling, of Rochester, also survive him.

A well-attended meeting of the booksellers, stationers and paper-dealers was held on the afternoon of the 14th inst. at the Chamber of Commerce. Ezra R. Andrews was selected to preside and Charles E. Morris Secretary. After a general expression of regret from those present a Committee on Resolutions was appointed consisting of George W. Fisher, Erastus Darrow, Samuel C. Steele, Sidney S. Avery, William A. Williamson, and R. M. Meyers. This committee presented the following resolutions:

Resolved, That we learn with unfeigned sorrow of the death of our venerable member and associate, William Alling, who for nearly sixty years had been at the head of his firm as one of the leading booksellers and stationers of this city, and one with whom we had intimate relations of business and friendship. We keenly feel our loss as the older members depart.

Resolved, That we tender our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family of the deceased and join with them in lamenting the death of him whose memory we shall ever cherish. We will attend in a body the funeral of our de

parted friend.

Resolved, That copies of these resolutions be presented to the family of the deceased and that they be published in the daily papers of the city.

The booksellers and paper-dealers met at the store of E. Darrow to attend the funeral. A general invitation was extended to all connected with the trade.

GOTTFRIED KELLER, the Swiss poet, died at Zurich, Switzerland, July 16. Gottfried Keller was born in Zurich in July, 1819, and studied the art of landscape painting for two years in Munich. On his return to Switzerland he devoted himself to literary work. From 1861 to 1876 he was the

"

official historian of Zurich. Among his principal works are the historical romances, “Les Gens de Seldwyla and Les Sept Légendes," several novels, and a number of poems and essays. There was a false report of his death in 1860.

JOHN WHITTAKER WATSON, author of "Beautiful Snow," who died in New York July 20, was born in that city in 1824. He was educated at the University of the City of New York and studied medicine, but became a journalist and engraver. He wrote many serial stories for weekly papers, some of which have been dramatizednotably the story of " Thirty Millions," which was put on the stage under the title of "The World." His volume," Beautiful Snow and Other Poems," was published in 1869.

EUGENE SCHUYLER, Consul-General of the United States, at Cairo, Egypt, died in that city July 18. He was a descendant of Peter Schuyler, Mayor of Albany in the eighteenth century, and was born in Ithaca, N. Y., on Feb. 26, 1840. He graduated at Yale in 1859, and at Columbia Law School in 1863, and began the practice of law. His life was spent in the diplomatic service of the United States, chiefly in Russia and Asia. In 1873 he made an eight months' trip through the Russian provinces, and three years later published his "Notes of a Journey in Russian Turkestan, Khokand, Bokhara, and Kuldia." Besides this he wrote "Peter the Great, Emperor of Russia," and "American Diplomacy," and translated Turgénieff's Fathers and Sons" and Tolstoi's "The Cossacks."

THE REV. DR. JACOB KREHBIEL, for many years at the head of the German department of the Western Methodist Book Concern, died at Cincinnati on the 19th inst., aged sixty-four years. One of his sons, Charles J., is one of the proprietors of the Aldine Printing Works, and another, Henry E., is the musical critic of the New York Tribune.

JOURNALISTIC NOTES.

Cordage Trade Journal is the title of a new fortnightly journal devoted to the interests of the cordage trade in particular and the hemp industry in general, issued from 130 Water Street, New York.

MR. J. A. STEUART, author of "Letters to Living Authors," has been appointed editor of the London Publishers' Circular, to succeed Mr. S. J. Reid, who has filled the position temporarily since the resignation of Mr. William Stephen some fifteen months ago. We extend a cordial greeting to Mr. Steuart.

MARION HARLAND and her daughter, Mrs. Christine Terhune Herrick, who have been respectively editor and associate editor of the Home Maker since the magazine was started, about two years ago, have, with Mrs. Mary C. Hungerford, the other associate editor, resigned, and will sever their connection with the publication Sept. 1.

FLEMING H. REVELL, who has become sole agent for the London Religious Tract Society's publications, calls special attention to the four magazines issued by the Society. The current issues of The Sunday at Home, The Leisure Hour, The Boy's Own Paper, and The Girl's Own Paper are full of excellent original matter and are all profusely illustrated.

The Illustrated American has wisely reduced the size of its pages and increased their number. The current issue contains sixty-four pages of convenient and comfortable dimensions, and has much matter of an uncommonly interesting and entertaining character. Some of the illustrations, however, are not up to the high standard of the first issues of the journal.

At the time of General Frémont's death he was engaged upon the manuscript of a paper for The Century's forthcoming series on the California Gold Hunters. It was to be entitled "Finding Paths to California," and was not only to deal with the several exploring expeditions, but to narrate the writer's intimate connection with the

events which led to the conquest and occupation of the territory. The work will be promptly continued by Mrs. Frémont. A fine portrait of General Frémont from a daguerreotype of '49 or '50 will appear in the September number of The Century, along with portraits of Commodores Sloat and Stockton, " Duke" Gwin, and Governor Burnett, in an article giving account of "How California Came into the Union."

A LIFE in the mountains during many summer vacations has borne fruit in the book, The White Mountains," by Rev. Julius H. Ward, to be published by D. Appleton & Company. All the principal sections of the White Hills are included in the work, and it will be illustrated by some characteristic bits of scenery. Mr. Ward is a well-known Episcopal clergyman, who has held for many years the position of a clergyman journalist in New York and Boston.

DE WOLFE FISKE & Co. have just ready "Vignettes from Life," edited by Frederic Edward McKay, who has written society and dramatic letters for the New Haven Palladium. Among the contributors of the fifteen stories which make up the volume may be mentioned Clinton Scollard, Emma V. Sheridan, Case Bull, Mabel Louise Fuller, Matthew White, Jr., Oscar Fay Adams, Wm.

Taylor, which is No. 34 of their Secret Service Series; " Married in Mask," by Mansfield Tracy Walworth, a love-story, which is No. 50 of their Select Series; and Amateurs' Manual of Photography," by Prof. Wm. Cushing, which is No. 6 of their Manual Library. This last is very timely and will claim the interest of the many amateurs all over the country who are interested in working their photographic outfits.

MACMILLAN & Co. will publish several volumes of Charles Kingsley's sermons as parts of their cheap edition of Kingsley's writings. They will appear at the rate of one volume a month. In ali the Kingsley set will consist of twentynine volumes. They will bring out early in the fall in book-form the late Miss Elizabeth Balch's "Glimpses of Old English Homes," several chap ters of which appeared in the English Illustrated Magazine. Miss Balch is now generally accepted as the author of " An Author's Love." She died in this city a few months ago.

ROBERT CLARKE & Co., Cincinnati, have in preparation an important contribution to American archæology entitled "The Antiquities of Tennessee," by Gates P. Thruston. The author describes the recent excavations among the mounds and stone grave cemeteries of Tennessee, which have brought to light a large number of new objects, illustrating the arts and industries of the Mound-Builders of the Mississippi Valley. Many of them have been discovered by the author, or under his supervision. More than five hundred of these objects will be illustrated in the engravings in this work-a number of them unique and of great interest. They have also in press "Abraham Lincoln's Pen and Voice," a complete compilation of Mr. Lincoln's letterscivil, political, and military-and his public addresses, messages to Congress, inaugurals, etc., as well as proclamations on various important public occasions, arranged in convenient form, and indexed, by C.

JUDGE WALLACE, in the United States Circuit Court on the 14th inst., handed down a decision refusing to grant Julia M. Hayden a preliminary injunction restraining the Official Hotel Red Book Company from publishing "The Hotel Red Book." Mrs. Hayden is the widow of Henry A. Hayden, who, with Edward F. Phillips, owned the copyright of "The Hotel Red Book," which they turned over to the Travellers' Publishing Company. This company at a meeting of its stockholders not long ago wound up its affairs and ordered the assets sold. The property was bought in by Secretary W. L. Jacques, who, a few hours afterward, turned it over to the Official Hotel Red Book Company for a much larger sum than he paid for it. Mrs. Hayden claimed that the winding up of the Travellers' Publishing Company was a conspiracy on the part of some

of the trustees and others, and brought suit for an injunction and accounting against W. L. Jacques, A. L. Ashman, James H. Breslin, W. D. Garrison, D. S. Hammond, H. H. Brockway, J. H. Rodgers, Simeon Ford, Edward S. Stokes, and Charles Reed.

RADICAL changes having taken place in the constitution of the firm, Messrs. Remington, of London, are going to alter their style to Eden, Remington & Co.

Ir is now definitely announced that Calman Lévy, of Paris, will publish this fall the first two volumes of Talleyrand's long-deferred memoir. The three remaining volumes will be published before 1892.

SAMPSON LOW & Co. have in preparation Mounteney Jephson's account of his adventures while imprisoned with Emin Pasha by the rebels of the Equatorial province. Mr. Jephson was a member of Stanley's expedition. The book will be gotten up uniform with "In Darkest Africa."

MR. WALTER BESANT in a pamphlet entitled "The Literary Handmaid of the Church'" scourges severely the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge for the merciless sweating of authors" employed by that corporation. Many shameful practices are charged against the Society which it cannot afford to let go unanswered.

SIR WALTER Scorr's "Journal" is to appear in the autumn, reproduced from the original, which is preserved at Abbotsford. Mr. David Douglas will edit it, and add, besides elaborate explanatory notes, illustrative extracts from unpublished sources, chief among them being the reminiscences in manuscript of James Skene, one of Scott's oldest and most intimate friends. There are also letters from Carlyle and Lockhart. The whole work, says the London Athenæ um, "will form two octavo volumes, and they are said to contain nearly double the amount of matter given by Lockhart, while the sentences and paragraphs will appear as they were written by Scott. Many passages were truncated by Lockhart, many entries were omitted, and for five months not a line was reproduced."

Book

Specimen copies will be sent to dealers free of charge. sellers having customers visiting Oberammergau should call their attention to this periodical, which will probably run to twenty numbers and will be a most valuable keepsake of their outing, as well as a really artistic and critical review of the Passion Play for the season of 1890.
