DR. HALE IS DEAD
CHAPLAIN OP UNITED STATES
SENATE PASSES AWAY
SUDDENLY.
WHOLE COUNTRY MOURNS HIM
Demise Takes Place at Roxbury, Mass.
-Was 87 Years Old-Day Before
Death Attended to Duty-Taft
Sends Message of Condolence.
Boston, June 11.-The Rev. Dr. E&
ward Everett Hale, chaplain of the
United States senate, died at his home
Sm Roxbury.
News of the death of Dr. Hale
shocked Boston to an unusual degree
because comparatively few knew that
be was ill. A week ago he was pres
ent at a celebration in honor of the
ninetieth birthday of Mrs. Julia Ward
Howe, his contemporary in many of
the reform movements with which
both had been identified for more
than fifty years. To his family it had
been apparent for some time that Dr.
Hale's health was failing. A few days
ago heart weakness was noticed, and
his condition became alarming.
Was 87 Years Old.
His great age, 87 years, militated
against him.
The day before, however, he was
up and about his apartment. In fact,
he had not been confined to his bed
at any stage of his illness. He re
Rev. Dr. Edward Hale.
tired at the usual time last night,
but his physician had noted evidences
that led him to warn the immediate
members of the family that the end
was not far off. As the night passed
Dr. Hale constantly became weaker,
until the end came later in the morn
I'ig.
Family at His Bedside.
Grouped about Dr. Hale's bedside
when he died were Mrs. Hale, his
wife; Philip L. Hale, his son; Ellen.
his daughter, and the family phy
sician.
Dr. Hale was born in this city in
April, 1822, and by training, educa
tion and tradition he represented
throughout the 87 years of his life the
spirit of the founders of the Mas
sachusetts Bay colony. He was grad
uated from Havard in 1839. He was
actively connected with the Boston
Advertiser many years ago,. and his
first charge as a clergyman was a
church in Worcester. He was a
prolific writer and had for years been
allied with the principal philanthropic
movements of the city, state and na
tion.
Senate Chaplain Since 1903.
Dr. Hale had been chaplain of the
United States senate since 1903. His
selection at that time to fill a vacancy
was generally regarded as a high
tribute to his accomplishments and
intellectual ability.
Since his appointment he has been
a very consistent attendant upon the
sessions of the senate, and his invoca
tions at the opening of each day's pro
ceedings were so marked by eloquence
a keen appreciation of the events of
the day and a warm sympathy with
the sufferings of humanity at large
that few of the senators failed to be
in their seats when the gavel fell.
Serious inroads first appeared in his
health about the beginning of the
present calendar year. He was rather
feeble inauguration day, and finally
in the first week in May he became so
ill as to be obliged to cancel his en
gagement to deliver the invocation
upon the occasion of the unveiling of
the statute of Longfellow in this city.
He left Washington several days be
fore that ceremony, never to return.
Taft Sends Condolence.
Washington, June 11.-The news of
the death of Dr. Hale reached the
senate at noon and was received with
general expressions of regret. No fig
ure had been more familiar about the
precincts of the senate than that of
the venerable chaplain, and no per
son was more respected or beloved.
By his unassuming manner and go
nial disposition he had become a gen
eral favorite with the senators and
employes, while his distinction in the
world of letters and theology had
caused him to be generally sought out
by strangers.
Dr. Hale became chaplain of the
senate on the 14th of December, 1903.
He received his appointment through
Senator Frye, who was at the time
acting as vice-president. The selec
tion was made at the instance of Sen
ator Hoar, who had been his life-long
personal. friend.
President Taft, upon being informed
of Dr. Hale's death, sent a telegram of
condolence to Mrs. Hale.
661 ARE RESCUED FROM
STEAMER IN DIRE PERIL
Spanish Passenger Vessel Grounds on
Beach at Fire Island-People
Taken Off.
New York, June 11.-The Spanish
steamer Antonio Lopez, with 626 pas
sengers and a crew of 185 men,
grounded on Fire island and lay on
the beach all night pounded by heavy
seas. Rockets sent up for assistance
warned the decimated summer life
saving grew at Point-o'-Woods life
saving station, but they could do noth
ing until daylight.
At that time wrecking tugs reached
the stranded steamer, a lifeboat was
launched through the surf and the
work of transferring the women and
children passengers to the wrecking
tugs was accomplished. The sea was
then too high to permit the passen
gers to be landed.
The steamer appeared to be un
damaged and in no immediate danger,
as the sea was subsiding. Most of the
passengers were from Italian and
Spanish ports, including Naples,
Genoa and Cadiz, and they were bound
for Vera Cruz, where the steamer in
tended to proceed after touching at
New York.
The Lopez lay on a sandbar about
1,000 feet off shore when the wreck
was discovered by the Point-o'-Woods
life-saving station. Capt. Baker of
the life-saving crew was absent, but
his son took charge and soon assem
bled a volunteer crew of fishermen.
Several attempts were made to
launch the lifeboat, but the surf was
running too high on the beach and
the vessel lay so far from the shore
that the life-savers were unable to
shoot a line over her to set up the
breeches buoy apparatus.
A request was forwarded to New
York city for wrecking tugs and with
in a few hours two of them reached
the scene and passed lines to the
stranded steamer. They were unable
to move her, and the Lopez then
hoisted signals asking that small boats
be sent to take off the passengers,
who were frightened.
After daybreak the life-saving crew
got several surfboats launched and
the transfer of the passengers to the
wrecking tugs began. Women and
children were taken first and the men
followed. The rescue work pro
ceeded rapidly.
The Antonio Lopez is a steel steam
er, 430 feet long and of 3,591 net ton

ART LEADER IS A SUICIDE.
William J. Comley Found Dead in
New York Office Building-No
Cause for Deed.
New York, June 11.-Wiliam J.
Comley, president of the International
Society of Art, shot and killed himself
in his office at Thirty-fourth street
and Fifth avenue. He had been work
ing late and the janitor paid no atten
tion to him until he heard a pistol
shot. Going to the society's room,
the janitor found Comley in a chair
with a bullet wound in his head and
a revolver on the desk before him.
Comley achieved considerable suc
cess as a portrait painter, and several
years ago founded the International
Society of Art, which was exclusively
a business concern for the handling of
portraits.
The police who were called in found
two letters, one addressed to Miss A.
Comley of Yonkers, N. Y., and the
other to the coroner. At that time
the police were unable to discover a
reason for the suicide.
SIX BURNED TO DEATH.

tins Ferry (0.) blast furnace of the
Wheeling Steel & Iron Company.

capes from death or injury.
Fragments of four blackened

Ferry.
HUNDRED LIVES PERILED.
Three Persons Injured In Crash of

Near Cleveland, O.
Cleveland, 0., June 11.-Three per
sons were injured and one hundred or
more had a narrow escape from death
or severe injury when a Wheeling &
Lake Erie passenger train crashed
into the rear end of a freight train.
The passenger train entered the city
yards at a lively clip. Suddenly the
train was thrown from the main line
to a sidetrack by an open switch and
into the rear of the freight.

the speed somewhat. He was slightly
injured. Mrs. J. Bower and her small

Eloquent Oration is Delivered by Ken

Salutes-MaJ. Gen. Grant Receives
Tribute on Behalf of Government.
Vicksburg, Miss., June 11.-A fine
statue of the late Gen. Stephen Dill
Lee was unveiled to-day in the Na.
tional Military park and presented to
the United States by the United Con.
federate Veterans, whose commander
he was at the time of his death. The
ceremonies took place in the after
noon and were witnessed by thou
sands of Mississippians and Louisian
ians and many persons from other
states, both north and south. Gov.
Noel of Mississippi, Gov. Sanders of
Louisiani and many of the confede

closed at Memphis, were among those
present.
Col. Watterson Dellevers Oration.
Col. Henry Watterson of Louisville
was the master of ceremonies, and
Col. George R. Peck, the eloquent Chi

Clement A. Evans, commander-in
chief of the confederate organization,

of salutes by military companies and

sents Gen. Lee in a moment of tri
umph after one of his victories in a
skirmish about Vicksburg. It was de

Henry Hudson Kitson of Quincy,
Mass., who assisted at the unveiling.
Tribute to Old Soldiers.
Upon taking the chair as presiding
officer Mr. Watterson said:
"Those of us who survive the
dread ordeal are old men now, and
each annual roll-call brings yet fewer
of us together. Presently there will
remain among the living not one who
fought on either side. Happy those
who have been spared to look upon
a land never again to be wet by fra
ternal blood and a people reunited
forever in heart and hand. The mys
tic chord of memory, 'stretching from
every battlefield and patriotic grave
to every living heart and hearthstone,'
touched long ago by 'the angels of
our better nature,' swell at last the
universal chorus of the union; the
memory of deeds of kindness and of
valor done; of a common blood and
race; for, impossible as the line of
fire seemed, we were one people then,
and we are one people now, the war of
sections a mutual and a blessed heri
tage.
Honor to Lee.
"This is why we are assembled in a
national cemetery to rear a memorial
to a confederate general. He was of
the best the south has to offer upon
the altars of American manhood, all
that the north could *wish an Amer
ican to be. I have ridden to battle
with him, and knelt by his side in
prayer, and can truly say that what
his great kinsman was to Virgina he
was to Mississippi:
"'So prompt and capable and yet
so calm. He nothing lack'd in sol
diership, except good fortune.'
"It will be for another to dwell upon
his manly and surpassing virtues; his
skill and prowess in the field, his serv
ice to the arts of peace; his sim
ple, kindly, sturdy manfulness in the
presence of life's duties, his Christian
resignation in the presence of death;
a Lee in every drop of his blood, in
every inch of his stature, in every
thought and fiber of his splendid in
tellect and delightful personality."
Gen. Evans Speaks.
"Our thoughts and feelings to-day
concentrate fitly on the patriotic life
of Lieut. Gen. Lee, as we shall always
associate him with the great events
in which he acted his distinguished
part," said Gen. Evans. "I will make
his well-known life the theme, his
character an example and his career
the suggestion of the citizens' patri
otic duty. What a noble man he was!
Not merely a titular nobleman with
out the noble graces, but a monu
mental nobility, proven by his deeds,
belonged to him without other escutch
eon. This monument declares his
fame and our country will accept it
as a part of its own glory."
Reviews Career of Lee.
Maj. Gen. Frederick Dent Grant of
the department of the lakes, repre
senting Secretary of War Dickinson,
who was unable to be present, re
ceived in behalf of the national gov
ernment the statue of Gen. Stephen
D. Lee from the United Confederate
Veterans. Gen. Grant referred to his
acquaintance with Gen. Lee, which,
he said, oontinued through many
years and afforded him the greatest
happiness and gratification. He re
viewed the career of Gen. Lee, who
died, "leaving an untarnished record,
and a memory deservedly honored
with admiration and respect, because
of his noble life and character, of
which his surviving son and friends
will be ever proud, and which all who
follow him may emulate."

HARD QUESTION TO ANSWER
Simple Interrogation That Put Aeeuse

The following story which leaked
out of a Yale faculty meeting is also.
typical of "Waterloo" Wheeler. The
case of a fast student was before the
faculty. Though the Yale principle is
to meddle as little as possible with
the life and morals of the student, in

misconduct are summarily disposed
of. The student in question had beet
seen in the company of. a woman or
rather poor reputation and there was
a question of dismissal. Lest he be
wrongfully sentenced the cautious
Prof. Ladd, the philosopher, had in.
quired, "Was the young man positive.
ly identified?" Oh, yes, the professor
knew the man well; there could be no
mistake about it. Then Prof. Wheeler
looked up quizzically, tapped his spec.
tacles against the fingers of his left
hand, a characteristic gesture, and in
quired: "And can the professor also
positively identify the other party?"-

MAKING SUNSHINE
It Is Often Found In Pure Food.
The improper selection of food
drives many a healthy person into the
depths of despairing illness. Indeed,
much sickness comes from wrong food
and just so surely as that is the case
right food will make the sun shine
once more.
An old veteran of Newburyport,
Mass., says: "In October, I was taken
sick and went to bed, losing 47 pounds
in about 60 days. I had doctor after
doctor, food hurt me and I had to live
almost entirely on magnesia and soda.
All solid food distressed me so that
water would run out of my mouth in
little streams.
"I had terrible night sweats, and my
doctor finally said I had consumption
and must die. My good wife gave up
all hope. We were at Old Orchard,
Me., at that time and my wife saw
Grape-Nuts in a grocery there. She
bought some and persuaded me to
try it.
"I had no faith in it, but took it to
please her. To my surprise it did not
distress me as all other food had done
and before I had taken the fifth pack
age I was well on the mend. The pains
left my head, my mind became clearer
and I gained weight rapidly.
"I went back to my work again and
now after six weeks' use of the food
I am better and stronger than ever be.
[ore in my life. Grape-Nuts surely
saved my life and made me a strong
hearty man, 15 pounds heavier than
before I was taken ill.

thin."
