ITtlce, K V.. November 1.?L'tica paid
tribute 17-day to the memory of the
late Vice-President James S. .Sherman.
Kor hour? this afternoon and even.rig
thousands of persons tiled silently
through the One i via County Courthouse
and gazed for the last time upon u.e
face of the Vice-President, whose body
was lying in state in the rotunda it
, the building. l*ka body, cloth d in a
cutaway suit of bla>.k, reposed in a
casket of solid mahugany, covered with
black broadcloth, with handles of an?
tique slHer. The Vice-President's lace
bore a look of serenity, bat it was
overspread with a tinge if purple, the
mark left by the malady that caused
his dealit. In the right arm lay a
bunch of violets, the gift of his grand?
children, and in one ..ana was a spray
of red Uowers from the Sherman gar?
dens. An Elks- pin, the insignia ot
one of the few orders to which Mr.
Sherman belonged, gleamed from the
lapel of the coat
The casket rested up >n a flag-draped
catafalque, over which was suspended
a canopy of Mags. A floral piece of
white lilies lay on the casket, while
Palm?, ferns and flowers were arranged
in Profusion on the side.
Buiidtns; Is Meertaleg Dree*.
The exterior of the building was In
mourning dress, with festoons oi flats
in a background of black and purp)*-.
Tr.e body iay in state from 5 o'clock
thi- afternoon until ? o'clock to-rrighi.
and during that period It was esti?
mated that more than 25,000 people
passed through the building.
The procession which earlier in Uta
day escorted the casket from the Sher?
man home to the c mrthouse was im?
posing. Lining the street as the body
was borne from the house were hun?
dreds of Mr. Sherman's friends, neign
bors and business associates. As the
bearer* moved down the winding: walk
several" gray-hairetf veterstea. lined UP
on either side, saluted as It passed.
They were members of Bacon Poet. No.
53. Grand Army of the Republic, of
which Mr. Siicrman was the first asso?
ciate member. The'little band of
erans then took their place at too head,
of the procession.
Two hundred Elks, members of the
citizens' committee, the Chamber of
Commerce. Boosters' Club. Onelda
County Bar Association, directors of
several banks and scores of citizens,
friends snd neighbors of the Vlce
President were among those who fol?
lowed the body to U.e courthouse. !
As the cjrtege moved through the
business section the bells of the City
Hall and \arious churabes were tolled
All street traffic halted for the proces?
sion. It had been raining at intervals
in the day. aid the leaden skies gave :
promise of a storm.
The crowds waiting at the courthouse
were kept in check by delegations of j
national guardsmen, who later acted
aa a guard of honor while the body ?
was lying in state. The hearers hafl '
scarcely disappeared within the build
ing when the storm broke. Many of
those who had gathered preferred a
drenching, however, to losing their
places and there was no break In the
two lines that soon began to file
through the building.
All classes of citizens were there to j
pay their tribute of respect. While the
st.irni was at its height the electric
lights in the building went out. and
those who happened to be passing
thnugh the rotunda for the next few
minutes could discern only a shadowy
form as they peered through the seml
darkneao at the face of the dead. It
was not long* before the lights were re?
stored.
Lines Are f ? broken.
Tiie lines continued unbroken up to 9
o'clock, when the caaket was closed,
and under an escort of citizens, return-]
ed to the Sherman home.

in l'tica shortly after 1 o'clock ???

Oscar S. Straus, candidate for Gov

irlved He was wildly cheered as he
?.a<1e his way to the front of the plat?
form, and waved a welcome to all parts
f the hall.
It waa fifteen minutes before his I
plifted hand brought the cheering to :

"Friends, I wish you to remember
lways that this is no ephemeral or I
emporary movement." he continued.
"We have gone Into this movement
making our sppeal to all good citizens,
without regard to their past party
affiliations, and with the resolute in?
tention to make this a permanent]
movement and a movement which shall I
deal not merely with national, but]
with State and local affairs.
"For, mind you. friends, the evils
that affect our people are evils which
cannot be dealt with by any one
branch of the government alone. We'
can grapple with them only when the i
national and State and municipal gov- ,
ernments alike are in the hands of I
men whose honesty is above proof and j
who know and understand and sym- j
pathize with the needs of the plain
people of the country, of the men and
women who make up the bulk of our
citizens."
Digressing for a moment from his
political topic; the Colonel referred to
the death of Vice-President Sherman,
saying:
"Within the last twenty-four hours
a man holding the second highest posi?
tion in the land has been stricken by
death, and I am sure I express the
feeling not only of all of you here,
but of our people everywhere, when I
say that we were all affected with
sorrow and concern for the death of
the Vice-President and In your name
I shall ask the chairman of this meet- !
Ing to send our most respectful sym?
pathy to the stricken woman, the wife
of the Ute Vice-President?Mrs. Sher?
man.
'?Friend*. I hare come here to speak
for the Progressive cause in this State
and for ths Pwrreasjve ticket from
t*p to bottom, and our cause will not
have triumphed completely until we
have made it triumph In the nation
and in the State, and then here In this
city of New York, and I ask that the
people of this country and of this State
Judge us not only by our platform of
principles, national and State, but by
the character of the men whom we
have nominated to stand on our plat?
form."

Rochester. K Y., November 1.?At
the request of Governor Wilson the
Democratic parade announced for to?
morrow in New York City has been
abandoned out or respect to the mem?
ory of Vice-President Sherman, whose
funeral will be held to-morrow.
As soon as Governor Wilson arrived
in Jiochestttr late to-day for bis two
speeches here to-nignt he telegraphed
National Chairman ". F. McCombs to
cancel the parade. 'Aha parade was to
have taken place at the same time
that Vice-President Sherman'es funeral
is to be held. The Governor wired
as follows:
I hope that the arrangements for'
the parade will be cancelled as an evi?
dence of our deep sympathy for the1
family and friends of the late Vice
PresMent. I know that this wUl be
your f?.-ling."
Announced by McCombs. j
New York, November L?Cancella?
tion of the parade planned for to-mor?
row was announced by Chairman Mc- j
Combs of the Democratic National
Committee to-night.
The Governor felt that it would
not be fitting for him to review a
pol'tical parade while the funeral of
the Vice-President of the United States!
was going (in, said Mr. McCombs.
"We only learned to-day that the
funeral was to be held to-morrow
afternoon. After learning this I con?
ferred with Governor Wilson and we
agreed that the parade ought to be
cancelled."
Calling off the parade does not mean.
Chairman McCombs said, that the Wil?
son Day celebrations, which have been
arranged to take place throughout the
country, will also be abandoned.
"The Wiiaon day- everdses will go
on as planned.'' he- add*d. ??These ejrer
t?*iSf0>b*T*v been er--?nsed ear - weeks
ahead, and It wonld hot be possible
to have Vhem stopped dow. The
parade in New York waa to have been
participated In by Governor Wiiaon
himself and, besides, it was to hare
been held in Vice-President Sherman's
home State. It was therefore felt by
the Governor and myself, as a special
mark of honor and respect to *he
memory of the Vice-?'resldent. that
the New York parade should be aban?
doned."
Attacks Senate.
Rochester. N. Y.. November 1.?Gov?
ernor Woodrow Wsison. in his speeches
here to-night, directed an attack upon
the United States Senate as "'a citadel
of private interest.'1 declaring the peo?
ple had not had possession of that body
for a'generation.
The speaker said confusion and in?
cessant contest would result for the
next four years with a postponement
of legislation unless both bouses of
Congress, as well as the presidency.!
were Democratic through and through.
He also explained his views on the
regulation of competition at greater
length than ho has done before during
the campaign. Holding that the two
chief issues are the tariff and the
trusts, he reiterated that without dis?
turbing "the healthy fibre of Ameri?
can business" he proposed to hare
"special favors rut out of the tariff.**
He announced that he Intended to
fight for trie rest of his life to destroy
private monopoly.
The Governor declared that mono-p?
oly could be prex-ented by making ille
gal unfair methods of competition. He
outlined among these the system of
underselling In a local market and the
discrimination by monopolies which
control raw materials against firms
which had not entered their combina?
tions.
The receptions accorded the Gover?
nor at both meetings wer?? of prolonged
duration. One demonstration lasted
seven minutes. The Governor said he
was glad to be so received **1n aa ad
mittedl- Republican stronghold."
