FROM COAST TO COAST.
Greatest Known Walking Feat Com
pleted Monday by Aged
New York, May 2.-Cutting his way
through a living mass of twenty thou
sand cheering people, his white locks
bared to the breeze and his shuffling
feet keeping time to the strains of the
"Star Spangled Banner," Edward Pay
son Weston today brought to a trium
phant end his ocean-to-ocean walk.
He ascended the steps of the city hall
at 3.10 p. m., completing the trans
continental journey of 3,483 miles in
seventy-seven walking days, a feat
'without parallel in the annals of ped
The grizzled athiete was welcomed
to his home city by Mayor Gaynor,
who presented him with a purse of
$400, hurriedly raised by a handful of
his admirers in the last hours of his
spectacular walk. This and the ad
miration and applause of the thous
ands who have followed his tramp
since the day of its inception, at Los
Angeles on February 1 last, is all
the reward that comes to the intrepid
- septuagenarian, after his two months'
and more of t .dging through heat
and cold across the continent
Ovation for Aged Pedestrian.
In the last stages of his walk from
Yonkers, where he spent Sunday, Into
New York, Weston was the object of
an ovation such as has rarely been
accorded to any individual short of a
victorious admiral or the colonel of a
rough riders' regiment. From 72nd
street down Broadway, from curb to
curb, was black with moving thous
ands, intent upon keeping sight of the'
white-haired little man ambling along
in his peculiar jerky gait. As Weston
finally turned into City Hall park,
black with thousands, he was visibly
moved, and it was with difficulty that
he found voice to thank the mayor for
his words of greeting.
"I wanted to show the youngsters
what an old'athlete of 72 years could
do," he said. Then, from the steps of
the city hall, he thanked the crowd
for its welcome, and expressed him
self well repaid by their cheers for all
Mayor's Welcome and Invitation.
Later, in the mayor's private office,
he was presented with a gold cham
pionship belt by President P. T. Pow
ers, of the Eastern Baseball-league. It
is the famous six-day go-as-you-please
championship belt, won by. Dineen
and Cavanaugh in la0O2 and 1903, re
In welcoming Weston, Mayor Gay
"Mr. Weston, I am very happy to
welcome you here an(l to express ap
preciation for what you have done.
The people ought to do, like you, and
* live as much as possible in the open
air. If they did many of them would~
live to be 100 years old."
With the speech over, his honor and
Weston had a cup of tea together in
the mayor's office, and the mayor, who
is an ardent walker, extended an in
-vitation for Weston to visit his coun
try place on Long Island.

G. DUNCAN BELLINGER DEAD.
Former Attorney General and Prom
inent Lawyer Passes Away at
His Home in Columbia.
Columbia, May 4.-The Hon. G.
Duncan Bellinger, formerly attorney
general of the State, died at 9.30
o'clock tonight at his home in Shan
don, a suburb of Columbia. Gen. Bel
linger had been sick for some time,
but following a trip to Florida it was
thought that his condition was much
improved. However, last Sunday he
was taken suddenly ill and his re
covery was despaired of. Showing a
slight improvement today, his condi
tion became grave late this afternoon
and tonight the end came. Chronic
dysentery and liver trouble was the
cause of his death.
Gen. Bellinger first came into prom
inence when as solicitor he prosecut
ed the famous Broxton Bridge cases
in Colleton county. In the early days
of the State dispensary he was a well
known figure, and as attorney general
he was feared as a prosecuting officer
of the StatJ. He was prosecutor in
the Brown lynchirg case in dispen
Gen. Bellinger was a member of
the Constitutional convention of 1895.
He has resided in Columbia practical
ly since that time. The law firm of
Bellinger & Townsend, Bellinger &
Welch, and later a separate law firm,
wer monuments of his legal talent af
ter his term as attorney general was
over., Gen. Bellinger was a member
of the distinguished family of Bel
lingers in lower South Carolina, hav
ing been born in Barnwell. Not only
as a prosecuting officer was he re
nowned in South Carolina but his de
fence in big cases will ever be re
membered by those whose pleasure it
was to hear him.
Notable among recent cases in
which he appeared as defendants' at
torneys are the Seminole trials, the
dispensary trials and other big cases.
In the famous Southern merger suit,
the preliminary of which were tried
here in 1907 before Judge Klugh and
a postponement had Gen. Bellinger
was associated with Attorney General
Lyon-.for the State.
Recently on account partly of the
absence of Gen. Bellinger in Florida
the alleged graft cases at Chester
were monuments of his legal talent af
Bellinger appeared frequently, a sen
sational trial recalled being that of
Samuel Owens, for whom Gen. Bel
linger was counsel.
Gen. ,Bellinger is survived by his
wife, who was Miss O'Bannan, of
Barnwell, and the following children:
G. Duncan Bellinger, Jr., Misses
Sophie, Anne, Norman and Harry Bel
linger. The burial will take place at
the old home in Barnwell. Funeral
services will be held tomorrow at 1
o'clock p. m. at the residence in
Shandon. The body will be taken to
Barnwell on the train leaving here
at 3.25 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
The funeral services will be conduct
ed by the Rev. Dr. W. C. Lindsay, of
the First Baptist .church, of this city.
The body will be interred at the Barn
well cemetery immediately after the
arrival of the train there.
