MAINS TO FORMER HOME IN
.... Washington, Oct 9. Although an
official funeral, the services in St.
'John's church yesterday over the
body of the late Henry C. Payne,
postmaster general, were marked by
impressive simplicity. Official Wash
ington filled the nave of the church,
and brillians as were the uniforms of
the large representation from the
army, navy and marine corps, the
solemnity of the scene was only en
hanced by the sharp contrast of color
with the deep mourning of the family
and personal friends of the dead
Side by side with Mrs. Payne sat
President and Mrs. Roosevelt, both in
deep mourning. In half an hour
The Funeral Procession
was winding its way slowly down
Pennsylvania avenue, escorted by the
postal carriers of the city of Wash

The special train carrying the body
and the funeral party left the station
at 3:35 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Secretary Hitchcock, who had expect
ed to go to Milwaukee on the train,
was unable to do so and telephoned
the fact with his regrets early in the
afternoon. Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson is the only cabinet officer who
went with the train, but the plans
contemplate that Secretary Shaw and
Secretary Metcalf will join the funer
al party later.
Fragrant With Flowers.
The chancel was fragrant with flow
I ers sent by friends from all over the
country. The only flowers on the cas
ket were those of Mrs. Payne, a large
sheaf of Easter lilies, a wreath of
I white roses and carnations from the
[president and Mrs. McKinley, and a
I cluster of violets, gardenias and

After the funeral party had left the

Heaviest Vessel Ever Launched in
United States Navy.
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 9.—Yesterday
at 2 o'clock, fifteen minutes before the
scheduled time, the battleship Ne
braska left her ways at Moran Bros.'
shipyard in this city and slid grace
fully and majestically into the waters
of Puget sound. The launching was
entirely successful and no hitch
marred the proceedings. The only
reason the ship was launched ahead
of time was that by a slight miscalcu
lation the poppet (a wooden brace at
the bow) was raising the vessel too
high, and in the opinion of experts, it
was better that the supports be
knocked out without delay. Fully 50,
000 people viewed the ceremonies and
saw the big vessel slip into tfife water.
She created a verysmall wave as she
took her maiden plunge and floated
out gently and gracefully. Naval
men who viewed the launching stated
that it was the most successful they
ever saw. The Nebraska weighs
more than any vessel ever before
launched by the United States navy.
Miss Mary Ann Mickey, daughter of
Gov. Mickey of Nebraska, christened
the vespel. ...

it 13 said, with the avowed intention
of taking Mrs. Leonard back to her
store. The negro secured a shotgun
and killed Hill.

TRAIN BREAKS IN
ENGINEER DIES HERO'S DEATH
The train, which entered from the
American side of the tunnel, was
made up of seventeen coal cars. When
it broke Engineer Coleman realized
Accident Had Happened,
and with the three cars that were still
attached to the engine, steamed out of
the tunnel into the Sarnia yards. He
hastily detached his engine and went
back into the tube for the stalled
cars. When his engine reached them
he attempted to push them back
through the tunnel and out to the
American port. The grade proved too
steep, and the attempt was a failure.
The engine and cars rolled back into
the gas-laden tunnel and Engineer
Coleman was suffocated at his post.
His fireman, Fred Forrest, stepped
into the partly filled water tank of the
engine, where there was enough air to
preserve his life, although he is in a

Commission to Investigate Slocum
Disaster Ready to Report.
Washington, Oct. 11.—The commis
sion appointed to investigate the Slo
cum disaster will probably submit its
report to the president to-day. Some
new legislation will be recommended,
but the report will show nothing sen
The steamboat inspectors' service
will be defended as a whole, but sug
gestions having for their purpose the
strengthening of that service, will be
made. The local inspectors in charge
in New York will he criticised and
held in some measure responsible for
the reprehensible condition of the Slo
cum and the want of proper instruc
tions when new inspectors are put to
work will be inveighed against as an
evidence of laxity in the service that
should be condemned.
Recommendations will be made for
a more frequent and more rigid in
spection of steamboats.
Several hundred pages of testimony
were taken by the commission. In its
report the commission finds:
That the ship was not properly in
spected and that no effort was made
by the inspector, upon whose report
her certificate was issued, to test the
appliances supposed to be used for
the protection of life.
That the life preservers were not
taken from the supports and tested as
they should have been that they
were filled with .granulated cork in
stead of cork blocks, and covered
with rotten canvass, which permitted
them to become waterlogged the mo
ment they struck the water.
That the hose on board the Slocum
had never been given a pumping test
by the officials. ....
That when the alarm of fire was
sounded, the hose was ptilled from its
supports and permitted to lie on the
deck in a coil, where, owing to its
long disuse, it burst and became use
That the pressure from the pumps
was inadequate for fire purposes.
That there had never been any fire
drills on board the boat that the of
ficers did not know how to command
the crew under such circumstances,
and that they knew nothing of their
duties under such conditions.
That the protections required by
law in such parts of the vessel as
might be exposed to fire had not been
complied with by the owners.
8hou!d Have Beached Her. Iv
One of the strong points of criticism
is the conduct of the officer of the
Slocum in running his vessel so far up
the river before beaching her. The
report calls attention to the very in
adequate fire protection, the quickly
collapsing wooden deck superstruc
ture, which was destroyed before the
ship was beached, and insists that
these things should have compelled
the captain of the Slocum to run his
boat aground at the first possible mo
ment instead of permitting his passen
gers to burn to death while making
his race to North Brother island.

Wapello, Iowa, Oct. 10 (Special).—
One of the most remarkable cures

that Of Mrs. Minnie Hart of this place.
Mrs. Hart was in bed for eight months

was all drawn up on one side and
could not walk across the room.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured her. Speak
ing of her cure, Mrs. Hart says:
"Yes, Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me
after I was in bed for eight months
and I know the cure was complete
for that was three years ago and I
have not been down since. In four
weeks form the time started taking
them I was able to make my garden.
Nobody can know how thankful I am
to be cured or how much I feel I owe
to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
This case again points out how
much the general health depends on
the Kidneys. Cure the Kidneys with
Dodd's Kidney Pills and nine-tenths of
