I. S. SENATOR HEYBURN DEAD.
End Comes in Washington After
Washington, October 17.?United
States Senator Weldon Brinton Heyburn,
of Idaho, died at his apartments!
here to-night, after a lingering illness,
He was 60 years old and had been in
the Senate nine years.

the heart and*kidneys caused the senator's
death. He. had not been well
since last March, when he collapsed after
delivering a speech in the senate
on the arbitration treaties, in spite of
doctors' warnings that the effort might
cost him his life. Several weeks ago,
apparently gaining strength after a
serious relapse, the Senator and Mrs.
Heyburn made preparations for a trip
West. Another relapse, however, prevented
them, and since then the patient
had been growing steadily weaker.
Today the doctors thought he was
silghtly improved, but death came suddenly
a few minutes before 8 o'clock
No arrangements have been made
for the funeral, but the body will be
taken to the old home of Senator Heyburn,
in Birmingham, Pa., for burial.
Senator Heyburn was born in Delaware,
May 23, 1852, his parents being
Quakers of English descent. After being
admitted to the bar in 1870 he
practiced law continuously until he entered
the senate. He married Miss
Ghenetein Yeatman, who survives him.
They had no children.
Tn 1883 the senator moved to She
shone, Idaho, which had been his home
ever since. He was.a member of the
Idaho constitutional convention and
had served as a delegate to the National
Republican convention, and as
Republican national committeeman.
January 13, 1903, he was elected'to the
senate, and in January, 1909, was
unanimously re-elected to -serve until
1915. As one of the stanchest of the
Republicans, Senator Helburn had for
years been a conspicuous figure in the
State. He was most widely known,
perhaps, for his unyielding bitterness
toward the South and frequent denunciations
of Southern civil war leaders.
He called the placing of Lee's statue in
the capitol an insult o the nation,
and in discussing this and many other
incidents engaged in acrimonious debates
with Southern senators.
During the past few years, since the
development of serious division in the
Republican ranks, Senator Heyburn
had played a prominent part in the
fight for party regularity.
The senator's wide range of information,
fine memory and readiness of
speech always assured him of attention
when he arcse to speak on any

Wills Bullet to Historical Society as
Constant Reminder of "ThirdTerm
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 5.?Colonel
Roosevelt's assailant, John Schrank,
exhibited today for the first time an
interest in Colonel Roosevelt's condition
when J. Bailey, sentenced to
ninety days, was brought into the tier
of cells where Schrank is confined.
Papers containing news of the attack
have been denied th'e prisoner and for
that reason he did not know the condition
of his victim.
"Is Roosevelt still alive?" he asked
Bailey, who answered in the affirmative.
Schrank did not reply and
walked back to his cell.
The prisoner spent a very quiet day
in the small enclosure to which he is
prnfinAri savins: he was "willing to
tako whatever was coming to him."
Schrank has made his will, it was
learned today through a fellow prisoner.
One of its provisions is that the
missile which probably would have
killed Rooseevlt but for the double
manuscript and metallic spectacle
case through which it passed be given
to a Xew York historical society and
be placed uopn exhibition with the
eim in the rotunda of the capitol build
ing at Albany.
Schrank. the deputy says, told one
of his fallow prisoners that he desires
the bullet and revolver to be a constant
reminder to posterity of "the
