ALMOST IN A MOMENT
SECRETARY HAY DIES
So Rapidly Did Death
Considered Well, the Family Failed to Reach
Room in Time. to Bid Him Farewell.
Newbury, N. H., July 1. John Hay,
secretary of state, died today at his
home on the shore of Lake Sunapee.
The hour of bis passing was 12:25
this morning. His last moments
were peaceful and without a struggle.
The suddenness of It was staggering.
At midnight all was quiet. Then
came a call for physicians. There
was a collapse, and twenty-five min
utes alter, all was over. Death was
caused by pulmonary embolism.
t Dr. Scudder, who was at the bed
Bide, said that last night Mr. Hay
bade his wife and the doctor a cheer
ful goodnight, and fell into a rest
ful sleep. The nurse at the bedside:
felt assured that the patient was on
the road to recovery.
At midnight and in a moment of
time, this was all changed. Mr. Hay
awoke, breathing quick and In a la
bored manner. In feeble tones he
called. The nurse immediately sum
moned Di. Scudder from the adjoin
ing room. Heroic remedies were ap
plied, but they were futile, and Mrs.
Hay was called. She was soon at the
bedside, but the patient's eyeb weie
already dull, and he seemed uncon
scious. Dissolution arrived so rap
idly that the son and daughter had
sot time to reach the room.
Orief and consternation threw the
household Into confusion and it was
two hours befoie Dr. Scudder was
. able to leave the house. He was
driven to the village, where shortly
after 3 o'clock the tidings of Mr.
Hay's death were dispatched to tue
president, to the state department and
to the world at large.
The doctor officially informed the
Associated Press that death was due
to "pulmonary embolism," or a foim
of heart disease.
PRE8IDENT SHOCKED AT
THE UNEXPECTED TIDINGS
Oyster Bay, July 1. President
Roosevelt was shocked and grieved
inexpresiably at the death of secre
tary Hay. When the president was
at Cambridge, Mass., on Wednesday,
he had a consultation with Dr. Jack
son, of Boston, who had been sum
moned to the bedside of Secretary
Hay at tbe incipiency of his illneBS.
Assurances were given by Dr. Jack
son that tbe consulting physicians
agieed with him in the expression
of the opinion that the secretary's
condition was not dangerous. 4
President Roosevelt, bad felt since
Secretary Hay went abroad In tbe
spring that he might never actively
resume bis onerous duties as secre
tary of state, but when Mr. Hay re
turned to Washington, his condition
was so greatly Improved that both he
and tbe piesident hoped that with a
summer rest at Lake Sunapee he
might be able fur a time at least to
direct the state department.
The dfath of the secretary was en
tirely une;ected, and comes as a per
sonal beieavement to the president.
With hiin the president was on terms
of the warmest personal friendship.
Tbe secretary was a personal friend
of Mr, Roosevelt's father, and had
known tbe president from childhood.
It Is reagrded as likely that the
funeral services will be held in Wash
ington, but interment will take place

that no immediate successor will be

WASHINGTON HEARS WITH 1
Washington, July 1. Notable as a
statesman and diplomat, whose offi
cial activities brought him conspicu
ously before the public for many
years, the news of the death of Sec
retary Hay was received here with
the most profound regret. Although
aware of the delicate condition of
Mr. Hay's health, there was general
expectation that he would rally and
that a long stay In the New Hamp
shire mountains would in a measure
lestore bis health. Mr. Hay was
never of a robust constitution, but by
scrupulous care he was able to keep
In fairly good health. While bis offi
cial duties were congenial to him,
yet because of his somewhat Im
paired physical condition be was re
luctant to remain In the cabinet, and
did so only at the urgent solicitation
of President Roosevelt.
SECRETARY TAFT AND
PARTY GREATLY GRIEVED.
Wheeling, W. Va July 1. Secre
tary Taft and party, who left Wash
ington last night, en route to - San
Francisco, on a Philippine trip, heaid
or Secretary Hay's death at Benwood
Junction early today. Mr. Taft said
the death was a great shock to him,
and other members of the party were
grieved beyond expression. It was be
lieved the death would stop the Phil
ippine trip, but Mr. Taft said he would
be guided by the desires of the presi

Facts as to Cost and Operation of a Modern and
up to Date Water System
at This Time.
A representative of The Citizen
called last evening upon H. A. Jastro,
at the Alvaiado, -where he Is spend
ing a fow days, and had a pleasant
talk with him concerning the Bakers
field water system, which is owned
by a company that Mr. Jastro repre
sents. Tbe reporter leained from
Mr. Jastro that In California a fran
chise Is not required for a water
works system. Any man can put In
a plant who may wish to do so, pro
vided be leave tbe streets In as
good condition as he found them.
There was in Bakersfield an an
tiquated Holly system plant line, but
this did not dissuade Mr. Jastro fiom
putting in an up-to-date plant. He
explained to The Citizen man that the
iioily system first pumps tbe water
into a reservoir, whence It is dis
tributed through the plant by the
force of gravity. In other words, the
water is first pumped up to some
high position, tbe cost ot pumping In
creasing with every foot of elevation,
In orde. that It may run down again.
The modern system consists in pump
ing the water directly from the wells
Into the mains, thus avoiding unnec
essary expense In lifting the water;
also avoiding tbe possibilities of con
tamination, which are inseparable
from an open reservoir; and further
more, avoiding the heating of the
water, which the reset voir invaria
bly and necessarily produces.
While talking upon this last point,
C. P. Lupton, the new trainmaster at
Winslow, but a former resident of
Bakersfield, came up and confirmed
the statement that the water at
Bakersfield Is deliciously pure and as
cold as ice water.
Mr. Jastro also stated that Bakers
field Is situated in tbe valley of the
Ke:n river, much as Albuquerque is
situated in tbe valley of tbe Rio
Grande; that the water plant Includes
eight wells in different parts of the
town, which vary in depth from fifty
to eighty-five feet. Each well la pro
vided with a pump, and electricity is
the power employed, while two men
are sufficient to look after twelva
such welln. I
"In Bakersfield," said Mr. JaBtro,
4tKAA Id rn ri.i:t rllnt nut limn tha'
use of water for Irrigation purposes,
except that an open hose cannot be
used. But the people are encour
aged to use all the. water they can
day and night, the. rate being one
cent per frout foot per month, for the
more the city U beautified the more
we are benefited."
When asked what he thought such
a plant could be established for In
Albuoueraue. he rvtilled that tha nut
'should not exceed between $75,000
and $100,000, the latter amount mak
ing ample pi o vision for tutor
A representative of The Citlaea
called on ex-Mayor O.. N. Matron at
his office thia morning' and requested
him to give his views on the water
question. Mr. Marion talked as fol
lows: "The question of municipal owner
ship of the water works and thai
control and distribution ot this most
important public utility bas been aa
attractive one ever since I have bad
to do with public affairs. This ques
tion was discussed considerably dur
ing the time I was mayor of tbe city
and several conferences were bad
with the late A. A. Grant, telatlve to
the taking over of the water plaai
by the city, but we never got very lav
In tbe matter."
"What, In your opinion, Mr. Mar
ron, is the sentiment of this com
munity, as to municipal ownersnip ot
its water works?" asked The Citlxaa
"I bave investigated this matter
quite thoroughly," answeied Mr. M'ar
ron, "and have talked with a great
number of people on the subject, and
In my opinion the sentiment la over

Aud why should this not be sol It

cities and with success. Thia com

sentiment Is as good as can be found
In any oilier community of like alx
anywhere, and I am not one ot thoae
who fear tbe people having their own

"Is there auy way, in your opinion,
Mr. Marron, whereby the city caa
put Into practical operation the muni
cipal control aud owuership of ita
water supply and thus yield presently
to the sentiment or which, you.
"1 see no Insuperable barrier to
tals," replied the gentleman. "My
Idea is that when there is anything
pi easing to be done la to go at it and
do it. This question cau be settled
uow aud tor all time as well as at
some vague future date. It Is my
opinion that the present water plant
can be taken over by the city. Th
Act of Congress hs accepted from
the prohibition of Incurring but a
certain amount of Indebtedness by
municipalities thia very thing which.
