BISHOP FEENAN'S FUNERAL SERVICE CARDINAL GIBBONS AND THIRTEEN HUNDRED VISITING PRIESTS L AT THE CATHEDRAL. PONTIFICAL REQUIEM IS SOLEMNLY CONDUCTED Funeral Cortege Thought to Be One of the Grandest and Most Imposing That Ever Passed Through the. Streets of Chicago-Many Thousands View the Remains While in the Cathedral. [aV ASSOCIATED aRESS.] Chicago, July 17.-With much pomp and imposing ceremony and in the presence of the cardinal of the church and a great gathering of ecclesiastical dignitaries, the last rites of the Roman Catholic service for the dead were performed for Archbishop Feenan at the Cathedral of the Holy Name. Early in the day a series of masses was begun by the numerous visiting priests, ending in the great pontifical mass requiem. During the funeral services crowds thronged the streets in the vicinity of the cathedral which was filled to ovra,..wing LATE ARCHBISHOP FENNAN. bI members of the clergy and a favored few of the laity. Cardinal Gibbons, with his deacons, offi clated at the solemn pontifical requiem which was conducted by Bishop John Lan caster Spalding of Peoria. Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia delivered the funeral setmon. After the mass Cardinal Gibbons pro nounced absolutions. The body of the dead archbishop was then taken to a vault in Calvary cemetery whence it will be re moved later to its last resting place in the new cemetery of Mount Carmel. The funeral cortege was probably one of the grandest and most imposing that ever passed through the streets of this city. Catholic dignitaries from many societies of the country were present, and did honor to their late co-laborer. Military, civic and church bodies accompanied the funeral car. Among the principal churchmen present was Archbishop Ireland. It is estimated that during the time the body of the dead archbishop lay in state in the cathedral over 75,oo0 persons passed it in review. So great was the de mand for admission to the service today that after the 1,300oo visiting priests had been accommodated only two lay persons from each parish in the Chicago arch dio cese could be admitted. FLURJRY OF SNOW WAS INTENDED FOR ALASKA Strange Storm Was Not Foreseen by Weather Bureau and Passbd With out Affecting Barometer. Butte had a mid-summer snow storm this morning. It looked like a safe predic. tion that there would be a foot of snow before evening, and people who wrote let ters to their friends in the East told of wading around in a foot of snow, but this afternoon they are sorry they wrote, as the sun came out and the snow didn't even show on the sidewalk. It was a flurry from a passing cleud intended for Noine, Alaska. "Generally falat tonight and warmer to morrow,V werealthe prophetic words sent out fromnChlcago, concerning the weather in Montana. today. Another dispatch, al most a duplicate, arrived today, so there is no chance of thaving a bad storm. "Strange,'! said Manager Wharton, chief of the weather bureau, "that the barometer did not give the slightest indication of this little storm. It rainell hard during the early hours of the morning and then turned to snow, but the barometer remained in a respectable position, indicating fine weather. STREET IN' POOR CONDITION Residents of East La Plata Make Com plaint to Commissioners. East La Plata street is causing the resi dents of the quarter through which it passes considerable worry on account of the state of disrepair in which it is at present.

TRACY SURROUNDED IN AN OLD SHACK SHERIFF CUDIHEE LEARNED OF HIS WHEREABOUTS THROUGH EF FORTS OF STOOL PIGEON. REPORT OF A FIGHT IS NOW HOURILY EXPECTED Heavily Armed Under the Command of Several Sheriffs Now Rushing to the Place Where Desperado Is Believed to Be-Posse Composed of Only the Nerviest and Most Trustworthy Men. TRACY ESCAPES ONCE MORE. [(Y ASSOCIATED I'rFsS.j Seattle, Wash., July 17, 3 p. m. Tracy has escaped again. Hounds and posse are following him. [B1 ASSOCIATED PRESS.] Seattle, Wash., July 17.-Word has just been received from Covington that Sheriff Cudihee's posse has surrounded a shack in which it is believed Tracy and two companions are located, and that a battle is expected. It is said that when Sheriff Cudihee dis appeared into the brush two clays ago he took with him a "stool pigeon" and a body of picked deputies. It is claimed that through the efforts of the stool pigeon Cudihee learned Tracy's whereabouts. To understand the game of hide-and seek which Tracy has been playing with the posse, a general outline of the coun try is necessary. The reservation hill divides the White river and Green river valleys. The conjunction of the valleys is at Auburn. To the east of the Green river is a rugged bluff extending for miles. Eight miles from Auburn, at its base, is the ranch of Frank Portaut, the French man, whose home Tracy entered Friday. ~I L :t' r rr l f ;" .. MAP OF THE UNDERGROUND WORKINGS OF THE DALY-WEST AND ADJOINING MINES. Standing on this bluff one looks straight across to the reservation hill in a westerly direction. Beyond this hill lies the White river 'valley to the east. Descending from Muckleshoot some of the roads lead down to the White river, while others run in a southerly direction to Enumclaw, Buckley and adjacent places. It now seems certain that Tracy lay hidden on the bluff behind Portaut's farm until dark, then crossed the Muckleshoot reservation, went over its summit and thence down to Enumclaw, where he was seen Sunday. The fact that all the other courses which he might have chosen were well guarded at the time, without doubt caused him to move south. Repeats Time-Worn Ruse. But when Tracy arrived at Enumclaw he found that escape from that place was also cut off, and then he repeated his time worn trick. He fled back to the reserva tion hill, while after a vain pursuit the posse went off helter skelter to Palmer. Not a road on the back track was guarded. Miles of country without a single guard, and the only thing he had to look for was discovery by some farmer, the very thing which happened. It is admitted, however, by all that even if the common thorough fares winding up the side of the reserva tion hill had been protected, Tracy would have succeeded. Hundreds of paths run through the tall timber and dense underbrush on its sides and summit. Abandoned roads still good enough for foot travel are found on all sides. These intersect and twist through the forest in so circuitous a way that the only wonder is that Tracy himself, expert woodsman though he be, did not take the wrong direction. One of the difficulties presented by the roads is the immense number of trails. These are a Chinese puzzle. Some come to a sudden end. Others have their beginning in half a dozen similar paths and end in as many more. Even the oldest inhabitants know little about these trails, and but a small number of the Indians on the reservation are well acquainted with their tortuous courses. How they came into existence is a problem. Adding to the safety of the hill as a place of retreat are the aban doned farms, old houses, shacks and rot ting log cabins, which are found in the depths of the forest in large numbers. In any one of these places the murderer could lie concealed while an army of men searched for him, and never be in much danger. To this retreat Tracy fled when the bloodhounds were set on his track at Enumclaw. (Continued on Page Three.) WORK OF RESCUE IS RESUMED LATE LAST NIGHT Probably All of the Bodies Have Now Been Recovered From Both of the Mines-- Body of John Burgy, the Powder Monkey, Literally Blown to Atoms--Said That the Mine Was Not Damaged More Than a Few Thousand Dollars--Will Resume Ooer otions in a Few Days. t(Y AS5OCIATED PRE8B.1] Park City, Utah, July 17.-The excite ment attending the disaster at the Daly West silver mine yesterday had subsided this morning and business has been par tially resumed.

[mY ASSOCIATErD PRi'ss. Owensboro, Ky., July 17.-John Ander son, a farmer who was in jail here charged with the murder of his wife on the night of July 8, was taken from prison by a masked mob of about 4o men and hanged to a beam over the city scales on one of the principal streets of Owensboro about 2:3o o'clock this morning. The lynchers, who are supposed to have come from the scene of Anderson's alleged crime, about three miles west of Owens boro, made their entrance into the city quietly, and, going to the jail, demanded admittance, which was refused. They then battered down the prison door, and while some went to the prison er's cell to lead him out, others of the mob surrounded the jailer and his family to prevent them from giving the alarm. Anderson was soon secured and in a few minutes was led across the street from the prison, where a rope was placed about his neck and he was hanged to a beam over a pair of scales. The mob then dispersed quietly. No ar rests have been made. Anderson was the first white man ever lynched in Davies county. At the time the murder with which he was charged was committed, Anderson and his wife had been separated for about seven weeks and'Mrs. Anderson was living at her father's, whither Anderson went for the alleged purpose of effecting a recon ciliation. The woman's father, it is said, entere4 some objections, and the irate husband then dragged his wife into the yard and shot her to death. He was arrested shortly after the crime and was in the Owensboro jail when he was lynched. No More Censorship.
