GIRL DEIS LOVE
While Man Is in
Declaring that she Is In no way re
sponsible for the fight last night which
resulted In sending one man to a hos
pital with a dangerous wound In his
chest, and a second to a police station,
charged with assault. Miss Marie Tor
rello, of 413 Fifth street northeast, over
whom two men fought to a finish, today
Is haunting tho Casualty Hospital,
where Allen Msrceron, one of the com
batants, la confined.
Msrceron. a clerk thirty years old, of
SSI ' Massachusetts avenue northeast,
and an American, received K stab In his
btcast just above tho heart, said to
have been administered by Albert De
ity, a brother-in-law of Miss Torrello.
Delay, who Is locked up at the Ninth
precinct charred with assuult. Is .1
bricklayer, is thirty-five years old, and
lives at 314 Filth street northeust. He
will be detained until the seriousness of
Murceron's wound Is determined.
In Love With Her.
Marceron, It Is said, was In love with
Miss Torrello, and waa waiting for her
return home last night when the alter
cation occurred. Miss Torrello reached
home a few moments after the alter
cation, saw her lover with the blood
gushing from his chest, and assisted In
getting him oft to the hospital. Bright
and early this morning she visited the
Casualty, and since then has remained
In the vicinity of the Institution.
"The men did not fight a duel over
me," she said.
"Personal differences between them In
which I did not figure, were responsible
for the altercation. I knew nothing of
the difficulty until I returned home a
short time after the fight. I saw Mar
ceron bleeding, and that was tho first
knowledge I had of the affair."
At the hospital the young woman was
told that she could not see Marceron
until the regular hours for receiving
visitors. She was sent away, but re
mained near the Casualty until time
for admittance, when she made a
frantic rush for Marceron's ward. She
was much relieved at his Improved
condition, and remained at his bedside
until taken away by the nurse.
Waits for Girl.
The stabbing occurred about 8 o'clock
last evening In front ot the homo of
Miss Marie Torrello, 314 Fifth street
northeast. Marceron, wno Is an Ameri
can, had called at the house to sea her,
and being Informed that she had not as
yet come from Work, was waiting out
side for her. Miss Torrello's relatives
are said to have resented Marceron's
attention to the young woman because
of his nationality.
W'i!le MarciTon was waiting for Miss
Torrello to return home her brother-in-law,
Albert belli y, came by. Thu two
men had some words. An altercation
followed, and a moment later Marceron
fell to the ground, declaring he had
been cut. Policeman Allen, of the
Ninth precinct, who was off duty at the
time and dressed in cltlien clothes,
was about a half it block away at the
When he saw that there was trou
ble between the two men he rushed
ua, arriving Just ns Marceron fell.
Allen grabbed Delay, but the Italian
managed to break away from him
and ran down the street. Marceron
was carried Into a nearby house and
later taken to the hospital. Miss Tor
rello, arriving home a few minutes
later, learned what had taken place
and. Jumping Into on automobile In
which there were throe officers, aid
' d them In the search for her hrothor-ln-law.
Delay succeeded In evading the of
ficers who were on his trail und sought
his attorney, James F. O'Shea. After
talking with his client, the attorney
called up the police and said he would
surrender Delay as soon as he could get
him to the station. Acting on the ad
vice of his counsel. Delay declined to
make any statement regarding tho uf
falr. It was thought last night that Mar

CAREER OF DEAD
His Devotion to Duty 111(1 His God
Praised as That of Faith
The most distinguished men ot this
nation, and the official representa
tives ot foreign .nations, paid tribute
to the late 8enator Isldor Rayner
today, when the last rites were held
and the body was laid to rest In
Rock Creek Cemetery.
President Tatt had the place ot
honor at the obsequies held at the
Rayner residence, 1320 Eighteenth
street northwest, and heard an elo
quent eulogy ot the dead by the Rev.
Ulysses O. B. Pierce, who, as chap
lain ot the Senate, counted tho
friendship ot Senator Rayner one ot
the dearest possessions of bis life.
In a soml-clrcle about the bier
were his colleagues ot the 8enate ap
pointed aa an escort to the grave. On
the right of the President were Cab
inet members, and on the lett mem'
bers of the Supreme Court and of
the Diplomatic Corps. In the rear
of them were members of Congress,
members ot the Rayner family, and
their intimate friends.
Service Is Brief.
The service was brief and simple, be
fitting the character of the dead. Prayer
by the Rev. Charles Wood, pastor of
the Church of the Covenant, opened It,
followed by a hymn by a quartet, and
the tribute of Dr. Pierce was then
heard. His words had no mere official
ring, but was the true eloquence of a
true friend. He said. In part:
"We rejoice In the tree whose strength
and beauty have been our admiration.
Under Ita shade we found shelter. We
were nourished by Its fruits. But not
until storm or tempest or the ruthless
ux of the woodman has laid Ita pros
trate foim beforo us, do we know Its
true proportions. We sometimes call
death the great leveter; and so It Is.
But Is not death also the great revealer?
And now that the long and honorablo
career of public service and private life
Is brought to a close, we realise, as
never before, how blessed we have been,
and how great Is the loss we now suffer.
Devotion to Duty.
"Did I say public service and private
life? Alas, these are sometimes separate
and distinct things. But with the true
man public service and private life grow
from the same root of faithful devo
tion to duty. To such a man hla public
life Is only an extension of his private
character. It Is a sharing with the
larger family of the city, State, or na
tion, those qualities which make home
u sacred place.
"To sach. private life la not a screen
where he would hide aught, but It Is tho
smaller area Into which are concen
trated, as by a sun glass, the love and
devotion which the larger public has
enured and rejoiced In. No wonder,
then, that when we are called to part
with such a man, home, and city, and
8tate, and nation should each feel Its
own loss to be supreme. Tho large)
family ot the public mourns him as an
honored and faithful servant of the
common good; the family circle mourn
for him as husband and father, and
nnnrn as thev only can who wero priv
ileged to snare with him the sanctities
of tno nome.
"ni ran wn doubt that even now
the liberated spirit of such a. man lias
heard the approving words, 'Well done,
good and faithful servant; enter thou
In o the Joy of thy Lord?''
The residence was crowded, to ita ut
mots capacity by those desiring to pay
tribute to the late Senator, and hun
dreds who came were unable to gain
entrance. The service wus held In tho
library, in the north wing of the house,
on the main floor. On the stalriaae and
In tho parlor opposite, were those not
of official life, and many friends from
Uultimore and other cities of Maryland.
Mrs. Schley Present.
A place of honor was reserved for
Mrs. Wlnfleld Scott Schley, widow of
Rear Admiral Schley, whom Senator
Rayner so eloquently defended In tho
naval Investigation of the battle pf
Bantlagoj Perry Belmont, of New York,
and several others. The scene at the
bier waa Impressive. A floral, blanket
of roses and lilies was thrown over the
casket, and on the left were the floral
.r.T.v.,1. , ho iinit. mates He. .a e
and the Japanese Ambassador. Viscount
Chlnda. Scores of other floral emblems
were arranged around the room.
When tne orler services came to an
end, the two committees from the
House and Senate formed In line at
the door of the residence extending to
tho hearse. Through this, double-flic,
the family proceeded to the carriages,
und following them came President
Taft. members of the Cabinet, the Su
preme Court Judges, diplomats, and In
The service at Rock Creek Cemetery
was marked by simplicity. Again the
two committees formed a double rile
from the hearse to the grave, and the
casket was carried between them to
the mausoleum, where tne nnai ser
vice was said and the last prayer of

FERDINAND'S ARTILLERY ENDS
SIEGE OF NEARLY A MONTH
SOFIA, Nov. 27. Messages received here today told
that Adrianople, second city in European Turkey, is burn
ing. The town, which has been holding out for weeks
against the Bulgarian forces, took fire from the deadly
bombardment of Czar Ferdinand's artillery.
Citizens of Adrianople were forced to flee for their
lives, only to be slain outside the city's fortifications by
the Bulgarians, it was said. Turkish soldiers inside the
walls were hard at work fighting the flames that were gain
ing on them every moment.
There has been fighting around Adrianople ever since
peace negotiations were first begun. There has been a
large force of Bulgarians outside the city awaiting the
moment they could rush in and seize the town of 50,000

CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 27. Nazim Pasha, the
Turkish commander in chief and representative in the
peace negotiations with Bulgaria, today rejected the Bul
garian offer and submitted counter proposals, which Gen
eral Savoff of Bulgaria said would be fully considered.
The prospects of an agreement were not considered
very bright, but that General Savoff should even have ac
cepted a counter offer from the Turks was deemed at least
a favorable symptom.
It was understood that Bulgaria would have left Tur
key practically nothing in Europe except Constantinople
and a nominal sovereignty over Albania and that Turkey
does not contemplate yielding' more than Albanian auton
omy and a ribbon of territory along the Bulgarian boundary.
AUSTRIA SAID TO HAVE TOLD TURKEY

BELGRADE, Nov. 27. -That Foreign Minister Count

any terms imposing the slightest concession on their part

The count was said to have assured the Porte that
the allies are absolutely at the end of their resources, and
pointed out that as the Turks still can raise several hundred
thousand more men from Asia, they are certain of ultimate
Austria was not considered here as particularly inter

it was fully recognized that the Vienna government fears
