them to the Insurance commissioner of

along the line of march the reverence,
respect and' love felt for the dead Sena

the entrance to the hall the pall bearers,
with their burden, were followed by the
members of Gov. Herrlck's staff, and,
taking up the rear, the citizens' com

TRAPPINGS OF WAR.
The chamber auditorium, -where the
body now lies In state, Is appropriately
t"t for the occasion. From the four
lirge chandeliers there Is a. huge
canopy of black. From a black and
white rosette In the center four white
streamers extend to the corners of the
canopy and around the entire hall, i
Near tho celling Is hung a wld,e black,
border. From this at frequent Intervals,
starting with a black and- white rosette

of the postal clerks of Cleveland. A
gigantic G. A. R. badge built principally
of carnations, was sent by Memorial

Of the entire collection one of the most
strikingly beautiful was a broken floral
rolumn, a tribute from the Union Na

smaller pieces have been received from
clubs and individuals, both in Cleve
land and from abroad.
The Senator Hanna seen by thou
sands who flled past the bier was far
different from the Senator Hanna fa

was thin and dr'awi bearing plain
testimony to the sufferings that he had

heightened by the contrast with the

Mr Morgan said that his position on

CLALMS PORT ARTHUR IS
4- PRACTICALLY BESIEGED
PARIS. Feb. IS. An eminent mill-
-I- tary authority connocted with one -f
-j- of the embassies nald today that -f
-4- Port Arthur was practically be-
sieged, and it was a serlouB ques- -f
4- tion whether this would not com- -f
4- pel either the abandonment or tho
i 4- surrender of tho fortress, with Its -f
j 4 men and material. 4-
4- The grounds for this belief were 4-
4- stated to be as follows: 4-
4- Admiral Togo's ships, on watch at 4-
4- the entrance of the port, prevent 4-
4- Ingress or egress, thus establishing 4-
4- a virtual blockade and cutting off 4-
4- the chances of relief from seaward. 4-
4- The Japaneso troops near New- -f-
4- chwang and other points on tho 4-
4" Llao Tung peninsula are able to In- 4-
4- terrupt the railroad forming the 4-
4- line of communication and supplies 4-
4- between Port Arthur and Harbin. 4-
4- Tho result Is tho gradual Invcstl- 4-
4- ture of Port Arthur within tho Ja- 4-
4- pancso naval and military lines. It 4-
4- will require a bold action on tho 4-
4- part of tho Russian forces to pre- 4-
