WASHINGTON, Nov. 25. The
funeral of Senator Isidor Rayncr of
Maryland, who died early today will
be held Wednesday afternoon at the
Rayncr home in Washington. The
service will be conducted by Chap-
am Pierce of the Senate, and Rev.
Charles Wood of the Church of the
Covenant. The President, Cabinet,
and members of committees of both
iouscs will attend.
Senator Rayncr, who was a demo
crat, will probably be succeeded by
a republican appointed by Governor
Goldsborotigh. It is expected that
such appointee will hold office at
cast until the Maryland legislature
meets in January, 1914. With Ray
ncr's vote, Democratic lenders count-
d on forty-nine votes, or more than
a majority of the total membership
of ninety-six. While the democrats
still have an apparent strength of
forty-eight, the death of the Mary-
.iikI senator reduces the supposed
majority to a point very near the
dividing line of party control.
William P. Jackson, member of
the republican national committee,
will, it is believed, be appointed as
Senator Rayncr's successor.

Powers of Europe Deny Warlike Prepar

To the Breaking Point, and Crisis May

Uy Associated l'ross.
LONDON, Nov. 25. The extreme
anxiety manifested by all European
governments today to deny reports
of warlike preparations and repre
sent the political situation as peace
ful and -satisfactory, is in itklf an
indication on how slender a bread
the issues of peace and war in
Europe now hang.
Danger arises not only from the
conflicting interests of Austria, Scr
via and other powers but from the
possibly that Turkey, following its
traditional policy of profiting by an
embroilment of the great powers
may adopt an irreconcilable attitude
on the peace negotiations.
Beyond the fact the plenipoten
tiaries met today, nothing is known,
not even whether ..n armistice was
arranged. It appears the suspension
of operations on the Tchatalja lines
was apparently by tacit consent
rather than formal agreement. The
Bulgarian semi-official newspaper,
the Mir, voices governmental irrita
tion at the dilatory methods of the
Turks. In the diplomatic field the
most important reports arc that Scr
via declines to answer the Austrian
demands until the -war is concluded,
and that Germany has not undertak

scries of explosions and how he was
prevented by their arrest.
Senator Kern cross-examined Mc
Manigal and asked if money was the
motive for causing the explosions
and the witness said "no." He said
Hockin when he first started him in
the dynamite business terrorized him
by saying if he didn't he would pre
vent him getting work. "Then I
was prompted by the foolish notion
it was for the good of the union.
My mind was inflamed with the Idea
to build up the union." He admitted
he had been arrested twice for lar
