Tuesday Afternoon. WAS SEVENTY YEARS OLD Brief Biography as Given in the Blue Book. Beaver, Pa., May 2S. Colonel Matthew Stanley Quay, senior senator from Penn sylvania, died peacefully at 2:4S o'clock this afternoon, after an illness which had been more or less persistent for the List year, which took a turn for the worse ten days ago, and which the doc tors diagnosed as chronic gastritis. The funeral will be at 2 o'clock on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 31, and the remains will he interred in the family burial plot in Beaver cemetery. Senator Quay's illness was a recur rence of the trouble fthat beset him dur ing the latter part 6f 1000 and the early days of January, 1901, when he was un dergoing the strain of a desperate light for re-election to the senate. Senator Quay, in health, was a great eater and his troubles of later years dated from overdraught on his vital sys tem, duo to heavy mating, smoking and the great nervous strain which he under went. A LONG OUTING. Last summer, after the political sun had-Tleared up in the state". Quay decided upon a long outing. .ecompanie i oy twotfriends he went into the heart of the grmic Maine wilderness, traveling miles as living in the open. At that ti-ne lie C3?plained of weakness and .;or.'rjied las of strength. He began to lose flesh at first gradual ly, but later pound by pound. H'-S stom ach refused to assimilate the food it got. and, nutrition failing, weakness fol lowed. On his return from the woods. Quay was bronzed as a veteran un.l look ed sturdy enough to live years. H cel ebrated his seventieth birthday it Beaver last fall, and at the time seemeJ in ex cellent health. The loss of weight, how ever, distressed him. Day in and day but. he went to a scale to see what Ills weight was. He dropped so persistently lhat the alarm which pervaded his own xnlnd spread to friends and family. The result was that he forsook his duties in the United States senate and betook him self to Florida, hoping that the mild weather there would bring relief, but Florida failed to restore vitality. The senator went back to "Washington, and soon after was taken to Philadelphia, where he was placed under treatment of two eminent specialists of that city. They ordered him to Atlantic City, hoping the sea air would aid in the recovery, but the loss continued gradually. Finding that Atlantic City did nothing toward reviving the distinguished patient, his physicians advised him to return to Washington. Senator Quay constantly expected death and told his friends so. The last calL he made to the White House he told Presi dent Roosevelt he never expected to re cover and would hardly see him again. To Attorney General Knox he gave the same information. TO ESCAPE VISITORS. In order to escape the worries of official life and be entirely secure against in trusion. Senator Quay decided to come to Pennsylvania. In going to Morganza, where his brother, Jerome Quay, was superintendent of the "Western Pennsyl vania Reform school, he thought that in that place he could bo visited by none but liis physicians and the family. His condition after arriving there was such as.to give no hone to the family, although he appeared brighter some days. The doctors, lighting stubbornly, hoped against hope. It was realized that the only chance of recovery Senator Quay had was to restore some life and activity to the stomach, which absolutely refused to perform its functions. Senator Quay, himself, told them all that it was useless, that he had run his course and was grad ually slipping away. Ten days ago he began the arrangement of his personal affairs, looking toward the end. The last papers were not signed until yesterday morning (Friday), but the ar rangements were all made. In the mean time no relief came and the sapping of vitality continued. The only food he could take was a milk preparation. Sunday last his condition -became so alarming that the family decided to re move him to Beaver. It was hoped that the old home and the old friends would revive him, but It did not. Those who were permitted to see him were shocked. Instead of the little short, stolid figure of yore, there was an emaciated, sunken Quay, weak as a child, unable to walk, peevish but brave. For a day or two there was improvement, and hope again pervaded the stricken family; but it wss merely temporary. INDIAN STOICISM. Quay showed all the stoicism of an In dian in his last illness. He held out f no kope of recovery, and refused to believe It was possible. Coolly and firmly he took leave of his dearest things. Thurs day last he asked to be taken to his fa mous library, remarking to his attend ants "I want to see my books once more "before I die." Through it all his mental energies never flagged. lie joked grimly at times, and was cheerful in his raomments. The relapse which alarmed the family on Sunday last at Morganza recurred again on Thursday night, and the alcrtn. was so serious that the Pittsburg special ists were called in at midnight. On Friday he rallied again and was able to converse with former Senator J. Donald Cameron for a time. Senator Quay had sent for Cameron, but never told anybody what he wanted. The amc night, the absent members of the family were summoned and every preparation for the end made. Last night again his condition continued worse, and the end gradually came, stupor, fever, high pulse and weakened respiration marking the approach of death. The pall-bearers selected are as follows: Senator Penrose, Former Attorney Gen eral John P. Elkin; William Montgom ery, cashier Allegheny National bank,,. Al legheny, Pa.; Col. Samuel Moody, general passenger agent of the Pennsylvania lines; v. S. Marshal S. P. Stone, of Beaver; State Bank Examiner J. R. Hur rali; Thomas S. Begelow, leader of the Citizens party in Allegheny county, and George T. Oliver, chief owner of the Pittsburg Gazette and Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. BRIEF BIOGRAPHY.

Senator Penrose was asked this-afternoon what effect the death of Senator Quay would have on politics. He said: "I do not want to discuss It under the conditions. Undoubtedly there will be sweeping changes, but I cannot name these now." Senator Penrose raced across the state froin Philadelphia last night to see the senator before he died. He reached here at 10 o'clock this morning, before the end had come. William Montgomery, cashier of the Al legheny National bank, of Pittsburg, and n close business and social friend of the senator, tonight estimated that Senator Quay's estate was worth about SSOO.OOO. of which 5100,000 is absolutely secured to his widow. It is reported that conferences are to be held in Philadelphia Sunday, at which a successor to Senator Quay may be de cided on and Governor Pcnnypacker ask ed to call a special session of the legisla ture. Among those mentioned as possible suc cessor to Senator Quay is II. C. Frick. with whom J. Donald Cameron spent the night after leaving Quay, and there Is a very strong feeling in certain quar ters that J. Donald Cameron will succeed Senator Quay and harmonize all the state factions. Harrisburg, Pa.. May 2S. Governor Pcnnypacker tonight issued a proclama tion announcing the death of Senator Quay, reciting his services to the state and nation, and ordering 1 that the flags on the public buildings be displayed at half-mast and that the several depart ments of the state government be closed on the day of his funeral. PRESIDENT WIRES. Washington. May 2S. Promptly on learning of the death the president wired to Mrs. Quay: "Accept my profound cympathy. otTlcial and personal. Throughout my term as president, Senator Quay has been my staunch and loyal friend, I had hoped to tho last that he would, by his sheer cour age, pull through his illness. "Again, accept my sympathy.

Two New Haven road strike breakers employed here on a North river pier were attacked by five men in Jersey City tonight while on their way home, and one of them Dom inic Sokoposki, 2S years old. was killed. His companion. Peter Hoemisk. was beaten, but not seriously injured. So koposki was struck on the head with an Iron bar and his skull fractured. Passengers on a passing trolley car jumped off. reeseuinjr Hoemizk. and fol lowed the attacking party, causing the arrest of Edward Griffin, a dock laborer, who has been identified as the man who struck Sokoposki the fatal blow. ALL FOR BRYAN. Nebraska Counties Select Him to Head the Delegation. Lincoln. Neb., May 2$. Democratic county conventions were held today in nearly a fourth of the counties of the state, and with scarcely an exception they declared for W. J. Brynn for dele gate at large to St. Louis and Indorsed his position. Action taken by previous county conventions shows that Mr. Bryan can control Wednesday's state con vention practically without opposition. Panama, May 2S. The project for the establishment of the Panama coinage on a gold basis was defeated in the legis lature today after a heated dlscusaioa. SECOND LINE IS OCCUPIED Japanese Move South Toward Port Arthur. MEET NO RESISTANCE Authorities Look for Port Arthur to Fall Soon. TACTICS ARE MASTERFUL Japs Mask Their Real Purpose by Much Shifting. Tokio, May 29 (Noon). The Japanese casualties at Nanshan ' are now estimated at 3,500. The number of Russian guns captured exceeds seventy. Che Foo, May 29 (9:30 a. m.). A Pit3ewo correspondent writes that the Chinese are assisting the Japanese in every way and that the Hunhutzes and other bandits are regularly enlisted in the Jap- anese army. Paris, May 20. The Tokio correspond ent of the Matin says that the second line of defense on the Liao Tung penin sula has been occupied by the Japanese without resistance. The authorities ex pect, the correspondent adds, that Port Arthur will fall during the second fct night in June. St. Petersburg, May 20. The news con tained in the dispatch to the emperor from General Kuropatkin, under date of May 27, is all that was officially given out tonight. While the dispatch was brief and bald, it is considered extreme ly significant. The fact that the Japanese commenced to advance along the main Liao Yang road immediately they had forced tho neck of the Liao Tung peninsula and cut off Major General Pock from any co operation with the Russians in the north shows a thorough understanding be tween the Japanese commanders. The authorities here believe the ad vance from Feng Waaig Cheng has only been suspended pending the elimination of Fock's force, and they expect that the advance upon Liao Yang will now be pushed on in eaest. It is evident that the continual shifting of and skir mishing by the advanced posts of the Japanese around Feng Wang Cheng have been merely successful in mucking the real force, consisting of the thrd army, which is moving north from Takushan. It is expected that this force will bo hurled upon Liao Yang, while tho south cm Japanese force is busy before Pott Arthur. The fact that there is almost a com plete suspension of press messages from Russian correspondents at the front is taken to mean that at present important movements are pending. FIERCE AND BLOODY. Tokio, May 2S 1:30 p. m. The Japanese assault on Nanshan Hill was the liercest and bloodiest affair in modern warfare. In the earlier rushes of the engagement every man participating was shot down before he reached the first line of Rus sian trenches. It was found necessary to stop these infantry charges and renew the artillery fire from the rear before the final and successful assault on the Rus sian position could be made. Tho suc cess of this assault was brought about by one detachment of Japanese troops, more intrepid than their comrades, who succeeded in piercing the Russian line. A splendid stroke of fortune was tha discovery and destruction by the Japa nese of the electric wires leading to the mines at the eastern foot of Nanshan Hill. This prevented the Russians from exploding these mines when the Japa nese Infantry crossed tho ground where they had been placed. It is possible that the fortune of the day hinged upon these mines. If the Russians had been able to explode them at the right time the losses among the Japanese troops would have Toeen tremendous, and it is possible also that the Russians would have been able to hold the Hill. Nanshan was splen didly defended. Nearly fifty guns of vari ous sizes were mounted on the various emplacements and there were also two batteries of quick-firing field pieces. The artillery was sheltered behind the loop hole trenches on the terraces of the hill. The infantry manning the field pieces ran with them around the hill, thus using these guns for'the protection of tho most important point. The Japanese began the fight by bringing all their field guns into action and concentrating their fire on the emplacements on the hill. 3y 11 o'clock in the morning the principal Rus sian batteries had been silenced. The Russian field batteries then withdrew to Nan Quan Ling Hill and from there con tinued to fire on the Japanese until night fall. After the Russian batteries had been silenced the Japanese artillery open ed on the enemy's trenches, the Japa nese infantry advancing, meanwhile, to within 400 metres of the Russian lines, where they encountered wire and other entanglements. They succeeded in dls covrlng an opening in these obstacles and getting finally to within 205 metres of the Russian trenches, they rushed for the line. Several successive charges were made, but every officer and man in the attacking parties was shot down ts) or 30 metres from the line. The charges were then stopped and the Japanese ar tillery renewed its preparatory, fire on the enemy's position. Towards evening a detachment of Japanese carried a sec tion of the Russian trenches, breaking through the enemy's line. Hundreds of the comrades of these men. Inspired by their success, sprang forward and then the entire Japanese line swept up the hill, driving the Russians from their po sitions. It was in the desperate infantry charges that the Japanese sustained the bulk of their losses. THE BALTIC FLEET. St. Petersburg, May 2S. $:ZS p. m. Al though work is be lag pushed sifht asd JAPANESE POWDER. Force Is Terrific and Its Manufac- ture a Secret. Washington, - May 28. Reports received here from the far east dwell at length upon the terrific power of the Japanese Shimose powder, the nature of which is an absolute secret. It is. not used, to propel the shot but for bursting charges of the army and navy ex- plosive shell. The result of the ex- plosion has astounded the United States army observers. The heavi- est armor-piercing shell with its small cavity is rem into thousands of sharp fragments which are hurl- ed through the air with such force that they pass. through the sides of an iron ship as would shells from a machine gun. The Russian warships Variag and Koriet were found to be riddled deck and sides by fragments of the shells. It is not known that any other nation possesses such a terrific .explosive. Kaai day to prepare the Baltic fleet for ser vice, it is feared now that It cannot be ready to sail for the far east before Oc tober. The delay is considered espe cially unfortunate, in view of the situa tion at Port Arthur, where the arrival of the fleet before the fall of the fortress wou prevent the raising of the siege. It has been found necessary to put the battleship Orel, which sank at Cronstadt, owing to her sea valves being, left open, and was subsequently floated, and on which an explosion killing ten stokers was alleged to have afterward occurred. In dry dock, and possibly she may not accompany the Baltic fleet to the far east. There is no intention of purchas ing any South American ships ofTered by private firms. Neither has Russia any intention of buying foreign mer chantmen for transport purposes. Four Hamburg-American liners were bought by the mercnant marine department and turned over to the navy tfo become part of the volunteer fleet. ( Twenty transports will accompany the Baltic fleet, carrying coal, ammunition i.nd every kind of stores. There will be also repair, water condensing and hospi tal ships. Altogether sixty-two pennants will go out under Vice Admiral Rojest vensky. Admiral Birileff, the naval com mander at Cronstadt, is becoming cele brated for his remarkable orders of the day. One issued this morning is as fol follows: "I visited the schoolship Nevka and did not find her captain or lieutenant. Two midshipmen in charge of fifty ca dets did not know how to turn out and salute the admiral . They did not know wherefore they were on board. God save the Nevka on a cruise." The Russians are so convinced of the efficiency of their submarine boats that many of the wealthiest and most influ ential people have formed an associa tion to promote the construction of ves sels of that class as being "total defens ive craft and such as are required by a Pacific power like Russia." Count Sheremeticff has contributed SlOO.otf) and Midshipman .Soldatieko has subscribed $2,0,X) toward the fund being raised to blind submarine boats. Two sailors who rescued Grand Duke Cyril at the time of the sinking of . the battleship Petropavlovsk have been made Knights of SL George. Imperial i per cents, instead of weak ening on the news from Kin Chou, ac tually advanced a quarter point on the bourse today. FORTUNE OF WAR. St. Petersburg. May 2S. 6:06 p. m. Em peror Nicholas received the news of the fighting at Kin Chou and in its 'vicinity at the palace of Tsarskoc-Selo. He at once sent for AVar Minister Sakharoff, with whom his majesty and the mem bers of his military cabinet went over tho dispatches. The emperor received the re port that the Russians were compelled to retire before the heavy artillery fire of the enemy's batteries in front and of his warships on their flank with com posure as being the fortune of war, but he was considerably agitated by the lat est reports that General Fock had not Continued on Second Page.

WORK HAS BEEN DONE Methodists Conference Prac tically Ended Its Labors. DELEGATES ARE LEAVING Memorial Service Today Will Close the Session. RACE QUESTION IS UP Shall Colored Men Be Eligible to the Episcopacy. Los Angeles, May 28. The Meth- odist general conference tonight voted practically unanimously to amend the church constitution so as to provide for the election of bishops of other than the white race. The conference will close tonight at 11 o'clock, this decision having been reached at a late hour this evening. . Los Angeles, Calif., May CS. Almost on tho stroke of midnight tonight the Methodist general conference of lfcrt concluded its last business session with the reading of the roll for the Inst time and adjourned until 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, when a memorinl service will be held and final adjournment taken. The closing hour of the conference witnessed a perfect deluge of corrniitteo reports and resolutions. After the matter of an amendment to the constitution of the church on the subject of bishopric eligibility had beon disposed of. the press of other otislness was so great that all of the business before the conference was finally placed in the hands of a sifting committee at 10:15 p. m.. wit horders to report in fif teen minutes. Among the important sub jects presented by this committee to the conference and passed in the closing moments were the following: Matter of providing relief for super annuated preachers, temperance, use of the Bible in the public schools, the peti tioning of congress on the subject of polygamy and the practice of Mormon ism, complimentary resolutions. A telegram was read during the even ing from' Secretary of the TreeflHury Leslie M. Shaw, congratulating the con ference on the work performed during the lost month. Uy common consent a fraternal reply was sent to Mr. Shaw. Los Angeles, May 28. The Methodist general conference rushed through a vast amount of business today during its three sessions, and when adjournment was taken late tonight had practically cleared the files of all the important sub jects that have been brought before it. As the time for final adjournment, ap proaches there is lws desire on the part of the delegates to enter into prolonged debate, and many left for their homes this evening. So numerous, indeed, have been tho departures that the convention is likely to find itself without a quorum on Monday. TJnless something important comes up on that day It is probable that this point will be urged. The heresy question which ha3 been held up by many, as a thing upon which there would be prolonged and heated de bate, proved to ho a very small matter after all. It was dismissed with a re port brought in by the committee on ed ucation, the conference adopting its rec ommendations without a ripple of excite ment. There was no debat- except a brief speech by Dr.,Munhall. who Is cred ited with being the leader of the forces opposed to the so-called higher criticism in the theological colleges. Dr. Mun hall merely stated his opposition to Bible criticism and declared hirhse.f favorable to the report as presented. HERESY CHARGES. The recommendations of the committee on education on this particular point were tha't in the absence of sufficient prool against tho faculties of certain univer sities, these institutions be exonerated on all the charges of heresy. The report recommended also that since there is some unrest and a disposition to fear that heresy will develop the director sIktoM exercl.se care In the selection of Instruct ors, -appointing norc concerning wttOisc soundness of doctrine there is any ques tion. Professors were cautioned to in struct their students to preach none but established doctrines. The report waa passed by a large vote. The motion to borrow the money foj tho book concerns was finally amended bc as to Instruct, the presiding ciders of the various conference districts that ar in arrears to make good tholr deficiencies In order that the book concern may iw reimbursed. RACE PROBLEM. There was re erred for the final iiesFion of the conference ora o the most niScant question programm! for coc skleration by this body. It was the ques tion of whether the ministers, any oth-r than white race shall ba fcllgtSle for the episcopacy. The matter cans'! from th? committee on episcopacy a the resell of memorials from several annual c3fr encea favoring the election of colored bbhops to preside as geaeral superintend ents. Chairman J. M. Buckley, In presenting the report of the committee on episcopacy on this subject, characterized rhe recora xrsendatles a one of the most far reaeb latr importance. It wsa a a action, h said, as weighty as had ben taken "by any general conference of recent yrirs.

"Resolved, first, That this general con ference propose the following amend ment to the constitution: To strike out from the third restrictive tule paragraph 67, section 5. of the discipline of 1900. so that tho whole paragraph shall reed: " "The general conference shall not change or alter any part or rule of our government so as to do away with tha episcopacy nor destroy the plan of our itinerant general superintendence; but may elect a bishop or bishops for wprk among particular races and languages, or for any of our foreign missions, limit ing their episcopal jurisdiction to the same respectively.' "Resolved, second. That if this report is adopted, thereafter the above pro posed amendment to the constitution bo submitted to the general conference in order to ascertain whether the legal con stitutional voto of two-thirds of the mem bers present and voting shall bo given; and "Resolved, third. That if such should be the result the blshopa shall be request ed to submit the proposition to the mem bers of tho annual conference and lay electoral conference which shall meet in the years 1M7 and 190S. for their adoption of the same amendment to the 'constitu tion." A1 motion to moke the report a special order of business for S:30 tonight pre vailed. The conference also adopted the majority report of the qpmmlttee of ed ucation on tho subject of opening tho American university at Washington. The report advised that the university be not opened until the endowment of $5,000,000 had been raised. WOUtQ EXPEL SMODT PRESBYTERIANS OBJECT TO MOR MON IN HIGH OFFICE.
