J! student body of the Weber academy
J I lined up so as to make a pathway
,. , through which the hearse and car
riages could pass. The young men
': bowed their uncovered heads as the
: hearso passed. Tho beautiful bronze
) casket, covered with a simple blan
l I ket of flowers, was then removed
' from the hearse and. proceded by
I ! the honorary pallbearers, was borne
f into the Tabernacle through the door
on the south side of the building.
The members of the Weber academy
board, of which Mr. Ecclos was a
member, entered the church after
; the casket.
So many peoplo gathered around
the entrances that it was with cliff i
y culty that the members of the family
( could enter and the crowd hud to be
requested time and time again to
I stand away from the door. As each
carriage waB emptied, the gathering
believed it to be the last and a gen-
eral rush was made for the door. It
( waB 2 o'clock before tho last carriage
had drawn up and the members of
t the Weber club had entered in a body.
. What few remaining Beats woro va
i cant were soon filled and every nook
i and corner hold those willing to sac
l rlfice comfort to hear the services.
1 Many lingered about tho doors and
i windows in the hope that they might
I hear the music or catch a fow words
if that were spoken.
, Up to the time that the Standard
went to press, tho services in the
Tabernacle were not yet completed.

man of affairs, business was prac

Tabernacle Not Large Enough.
Never before In tho history of Og

The floral offerings, which were of

At 12 30 o'clock the different or

a line extending down Twenty-sixth
street to Washington avenue The
students of tho Weber academy. 100
or more, met at the corner of Twenty
sixth street and Washington avenue
at 12-30 and they were soon joined
by the faculty of the Academy and tho
board mombers of the institution. This

Business Temporarily Suspended.
BusInesB waB temporarily suspended
in all business houses along Wash
ington avenuo while the procession
passed. No one thought of making a
purchase and clerks and proprietors
stood before their stores Many un
covered and bowod and among those
who did so were several who were
not acquainted with the great man
who ha3 Just passed, but knew him to
bo worthy of respect.
Hundreds of people bad gathored
at the Tabernacle two hours before
tho funeral in tho hope that they could
secure seats and when they were
made acquainted with the Tact that
members of the family would be seat
ed first they did not go away, but re
mainud In tho hope that thore would
be space for all. By the time the fu
neral procession arrived, tho crowd
had grown to largo proportions and
plainly foretold that the building
would hold but a fraction of thoae
who came to inv the :ast sad tribute.
Chopin's Funeral March.
As the mourners entered the Tab
ernaclo at 2:45, the strains of Chop
in's "Fuucral March," played by Or- 1
ganiat Sara F. Whitakor, gave sol- i
enmity to the occasion. ,
Tho services wore presided over by :
.President S. W. Sburtllff of the We- 1
ber Stake and conducted by Bishop
H. C Jacobs of the Fifth ward.
The siuglng of tho Ogden Taber

to the song service and this pnrt of
tho services, which was undor the
direction of Professor Joseph Ballan
tyno, was rendered by the sololBts,
male chorus and choir, with sympa
thetic care and each number was a
divine message of hope and comfort

APOSTLE M'KAY SPEAKS
Apostle McKay, in his tribute, said
"'Life' We've been so long together.
Through pleasant and through
'Tis hard to part when friends aro
Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear;
Then steal away, give little warning,
choose thine own time;
Say not good-night, but In some
Bid mo good-morning.
"This sentiment certainly seoms
particularly applicable to the sudden
close of our beloed brother's life. So
sudden was It, so unexpected, that
een now wo can scarcely believe he

the details of his many and varied
business Interests. When we meet
ono of IiIh close associates, there un
eonscioush comes to tho mind tho
half-formed sentenco, 'When do you
expect President Eccles back'', The
suddenness of Death's call, coming as
it did llko the lightning's flash, has
bewildered us, and we can scarcely
convince ourselves that we must ac
cept the Inevitable. In tho midst of
life's activities, on the night of De
cember 5, 1912, our associate, friend
and brother, unexpectedly received
and readily answered tho last earthly
summons Nobody who saw him hur
rying down South Temple street to
ward the station dreamed could ecn
imagine that he was within a few
steps of the end of life's journey
Neither could a person who did not
recognize him realize that the gentle
man running to catch a train pos
sessed anything more than an ordi
nary competence That simple act
of hurrying to the train on foot, (no
car being In sight) instead of hiring
a taxicab, illustrates one of the dom
inant traits In Brother Eccles' life.
Plain living and high thinking wore
eer characteristic of him. The les
sons of industry, economy and fru
gality that ho learned In the days of
his poverty, remained with him to tho
last, and David Eccles. tho multi
millionaire, was the same modeBt un
assuming David Eccles that worked
and plodded in the mountains to earn
his first fifty dollars
"To some men, riches bring a spirit
of arrogance; but arrogance could
find no resting place in our brother's

ing were such that the poorest In tho
financial world might feel at ease In

"What wo call death Id simply a fail

We move in our physical existence
and come In contact w:th our envir

senees When one of these becomes
totally impaired, we may be said to
be dead to that particular part of our
life; and so when all our senses cease
to respond to tho Impressions of phy
sical manifestations, we say tho por
son is dead. But there 1b a spirit In
man that can respond to an environ
ment that transcends the possibilities
of these five physical senses In other
words. Impressions, thoughts, knowl
edge, may be received definitely from
sources that are beyond tho reach of
sight, hearing, touch, etc Science has
demonstrated this beyond a shadow of
a doubt. This being true, we are not
Justified in concluding that Just be

Josus. our Rodcemer, always spoke
of this final change In man merely as
a sleep When ho came into the death
chamber of tho little daughter of Jnr
lus, who lay on her little bed appar
ently lifeless, tho Refleomer looked at
her and said, "She :s not dead, but
"When the messengers came with
the news of the fatal slcxness of Laz
arus, Jesus abode two dayB after re
ceiving the message, and then know
ing that Lazarus had passed from this
earthly existence. Jesus turned to his
disciples and said: 'Lazarus sleepeth
'Well,' said ono of his disciples, 'if he
sleepeth, he beth well. If that be the
case, it Is not necessary for Jesus to
go back and expose himself to his en
emies who are seeking his life In Ju
dea ' But Jesus replied, 'No, he 's
dead.' In the sense In which the apos
tles looked upon that change, this
Bleep was no more eternal than tho
natural sleep of the hody at night.
"This was shown clearly in the sub
sequent evenLs In tho raising of Laz
arus When Martha met her Lord Bhc
said: 'Master, if Thou nad'st boon
here my brother had not died.' 'Your
brother shall live again ' 'I know ho
will livo again In the resurrection.'
Then came tho immortal answer: 'I
am the resurrection and the life, he
that belleveth In Me, though he were
dead, yet shall he live '
'This Is the truth I aeslre to empha
size upon this solemn occasion. Our
brother lies simply In sleep. His spirit
has gone back to God who gave It On
tho resurrection morning the spirit
and the body, in obedience to infinite
law, will be reunited anG, as an Im

Here From a Dlotance.
Many came from tho outside to at
tend the last sad rites, arriving on
the early morning trains and remain
ing in the city thoughout the day.
The city officers of Logan, Including
tho mayor and other mombors of tho
board of commissioners, togother with
many of residents, came to tho fu
neral in special cars, and a large
number of people were from Salt Lake
and other parts of Utah.

assistant superintendent of tho Lew
iston sugar factory; A. Thomas, su
perintendent of the Logan factory, and
Joseph Quinney Jr., manager of tho
Logan sugar plant and other Eccles
concerns In Cache county.
Judgo H. H. Rolapp was selected as
ono of tho speakers at the fuueral,
but he had to decline, fearing that
ho would ho overcome by emotion.
Judge Rolapp has perhaps been moro
closely associated vllh David Ecclos
than any other mrt in the past ten
years, and the bonds of friendship and
loo between the two had grown so
strong that the judgo was greatly af
fected at the death of Mr. Eccles. He
said that he should like to have spok
en a fervent tribute to his dear friend,
but he knew that words would fall
