“Henry Jackson Bright, one of the few survivors of the famous Guiteau jury, died yesterday at his home in the Lambert Flats, on A street northeast. Mr. Bright had suffered nearly three years from heart trouble supplemented by bright’s disease and dropsy.

“He will be buried to-morrow from his late home. The funeral will be under the auspices of the Masonic lodge, of which he was a member. Burial will be in Congressional Cemetery.

“Mr. Bright was seventy-eight years old. He was born near Alexandria, Va., but in his early youth moved to this city. At the age of twenty-one he engaged in the shoe business on what was then known as Capitol Hill, and he continued there till about twenty years ago, when he retired from business.
