Where King Edwards Body
Awaits Final Sepulture.
From The London Daily Telegraph
Klnr Edward's body rests in St. George's
Chapel. Windsor Castle, where already
sleep many of hi? majesty's predecessors
on the throne of England, among -whom
are Edward IV. Henry VI. Henry VIIL
Charles I. George 111. Georgre TV, William
IV and some other*.
Its interior Is as magnificent as its ex
terior is perfect. The roof is supported by
graceful columns, from which the stone
work branches outward In delicate farilike
ribs, giving a wonderful appearajice of
lightness and grace. The arms of the sov
ereigns and nobles whose names axe asso
ciated with the ancient fabric are embla
zoned on the bosses. Among these are the
heraldic bearings of Edward the Confessor.
Edward 111, the Black Prince, Henry VI.
VII and VIII, and those of the Hastings,
Beaufort and BourchJer and other famous
families. Low pointed arches connect the
columns, and above these open the clere
story windows, twenty feet in height. The
west window is famed for delicacy and
grace of the stonework and the beauty of
the colored glass. It contains no fewer
than eighty compartments, arranged in six
tiers, and displays the prayer read at every
service h*ld in the chapel for the Knights
of the Garter.
A conspicuous object near the west door
is the "white marble statue erected by
Queen Victoria in memory, of her majes

of Hanbver. Close by is a brass tablet
to .the memory of Prince Alamayu. son of
King Theodore of Abyssinia, who died,
while on a visit to this country, and is
interred near the west door. The. choir,
which hi of singular beauty and richness,
is divided from the nave by the organ and
choir screen.
Th* stalls of th© Knights of th* Garter
are elaborately carved, and overhead hang
the Knights' banners, recalling memories
of the installation ceremonies which have
taken place here uninterruptedly since the.
foundation at th* Oro>r on St. George's
Day, 134? The sovereigns' stall is under
the organ. In the c*mr<^ of the choir is

RAILROAD RATES -In the bitter fac
tional contest In the Senate the real issue
between th© regulars and the insurgents
has been largely lost sight of. The ulti
mate purpose of both factions is to prevent
the railroads from overcharging shippers,
but the difference arises over the method
to be employed. The insurgents contend
that lf every railroad is prohibited from in
creasing any rate until such increase has
been approved by the Interstate Commerce
Commission, just rates will be assured.
The regulars contend that the first effect
of such a provision will be an immediate
increase of all rates In anticipation of the
law. followed by such a tremendous de
mand on the time of the commission that,
even where the increases are unreasonable,
it will be months befor* redress can be had.
The Cummins amendment is designed to
compel the railroads to secure the approval
of the commission before increasing any
rate or changing any classification, sched
ule or regulation- which may operate as an
increase. The regulars vehemently insist
that such a provision, once it goes into
operation, will involve such labor on the
part of the commission as to ciieck for an
incalculable period the adjustment of rates
to changing conditions.
the initial pressure comes from the con
stituents of the Insurgents and is a direct
result of the recent increases in railroad
rates. It Is asserted that the railroads have,
recently increased their rates from 18 to 33
per cent and that these increases will cost
t_ri*» shippers or the consumers approxi
mately $100,000,000 a year. The defender? of
the railroads meet this assertion with the
contention that the railroads have been
compelled to increase wages* as a result
the increased cost of living, by a like
amount. They insist that, th* railroads are
not the gainers, as their wage rolls absorb
all the increase in rat*s. But the insur
gents especially are determined «o force
the railroads to stand a share of the in
creased cost of labor— in other words, to cut
their dividends, instead of making the pub
lic pay the extra amount they are com
pelled to pay for labor. On that point the
regulars are divided Some of them frankly
as«ert their belief that such a course would
be unjust, even if practicable. Others, while
admitting that they would gladly achieve
that end. are unshakable in their convic
tion that the method proposed by the in
surgents is impracticable, and, as has been
said, will have an effect precisely the re
verse of that sought by their opponents.
Meanwhile, the Insurgents are assiduously
seeking to create a popular demand which
wfl] make it practically impossible for the
Democrats to vote with the Republicans.
Their war cry is "soak the railroads'.' ami
it must be admitted that it i* one not lack
ing In popularity.
nect desire of the administration that the
pending railroad bill shall provide for ade-
QiuUe feaeral supervision of all railroad se
curitiec, both stocks and bonds, and that is
provided for in Sections 13. 14 and 15 of
flic bi'l passed by the House and pending
in the Senate. This policy was first ad-o
rated by President Roosevelt, and It was
unequivocally indorsed in the RepublTnn
national platform: but on this point the in
surgents are badly divided Senator Cum
mins wants. «these sections retained but
amended to meet his views. Senator La
Follette, on the other hand, who la dis
posed to feel that Mr. Cummins is getting
tco much glory out of this bill, Is opposed
to these sections, contending that the adop
tion of his physical valuation proposition
wfH afford all the check on railroad securi
ties that ie needed The Democrats hi ac
cordance with their time-honored custom,
have applied the state's rights callipers to
the proposition, and have found that it
coes not fit th* principles of "tru* Jeffer
sonlan Democracy." What the outcome of
t>::s situation will be no man can tell.
ator Johnston, rising to a question of per
sonal privilege, to-day declared that the re
port that he had circulated an agreement
ÜBliweau the Republicans and Democrats on
the railroad bill and had obtained only one
or two signatures was without 'foundation.
H* said there had been no agreement be
tween the members of the two parties, that
he had circulated a purely Democratic
agreement and had obtained the signatures
thereto of a majority of his party col
leagues. This agreement, which he had
read from the desk, provides that the
Democrats will endeavor to vote first on
the Hughes amendment, striking from the
bill Sections 13, 14 and 15. and that they will
then seek an opportunity to \ote on Sen
ator Simmons's amendment providing that
where railroads reduce rates to meet water
competition they may not raise them until
they have satisfied the Interstate Com
merce Commission that a substantial
change in conditions has occurred. A blank
apace then follows for the Insertion of
other amendments on which Democrats
may wish to vote. Mr. Johnston explained
that the purpose, of the agreement was
merely to expedite consideration of the bill,
but insisted that no deal had been made
with the Republicans. Senator Hale then
arose and expressed his infinite gratifica
tion that such was the case. He deplored
the making of such deals in the past and
trusted they would never be made again.
He hoped every Senator would have an op
portunity to vote in accordance with his
convictions oo avary amendment offered.
"When the Senator from Maine had finished
his little homily several Senators could
scarcely refrain from murmuring "Amen."
VICTORY FOR METER— The action of
the Senate* Naval Committee in delegating
to the Secretary ,of the Navy authority to
distribute the duties of the Bureau of
Equipment among the other bureaus of
the department imposes no small task on
Secretary Meyer. This means, of course,
the abolition of the Bureau of Equipment
and provides the one legislative act neces
sary to enable Mr. Meyer to carry into ef
fect his' reorganization in Its entirety. To
conciliate the staff officers who have so
bitterly opposed the reduction In the num
ber of staff bureaus, the committee added
to the bill a paragraph, forecast in The
Tribune, providing that a staff officer who
has served as chief of a bureau shall not
be deprived of the advantages which ac
crue to such a post, and on retirement
shall have the rank and retired pay of a
rear admiral. This is intended primarily
to take care of Paymaster General Rog
ers, who has been required by Secretary
Meyer to hand in his resignation as chief
of the Pay Bureau, but it will also provide
for Chief Constructor Capps when the
time comes for his retirement. Of course.
Mr. Meyer has no objgetion to this pro
vision, which will in no way affect his re
organization, and the cost of which will
come out of the Treasury.
committee of the House Committee on La
bor reported favorably to-day a bill pro
hibiting the transportation In Interstate
commerce of goods made by convict labor.
There Is a considerable demand for this
legislation from states which d© not permit
the products of their own convicts to enter
into competition with free labor, but which
are Dowerless to prevent the admission of
the products of convict labor from other
states. It is believed that the full commit
tee -will promptly report the measure, al
though it is decidedly questionable if it can
be brouehf before the House for a vote at
this session.
seven. Daniel Rawlings, of Kentucky, broke
all precedents to-day when he asked per
mission of the President of the United
States to roll on the White House lawn.
Mr. Rawlings, sr., called on the President
and entered into a discussion ot abstruse
political subjects which greatly wearied his
young son. Mr. Taft noticed the wistful
look of the boy as t*e gazed out of the big
windows on the beautiful lawn and asked
him what the matte; -was. "May I roll on
your lawn?" inquired the little ciiap. ••Roll
until every thread of your little suit is
grass stained!" replied the President, and
the little fellow flew j»ut of the window.
After se^•eral rolls h*' "emembered that he

back to do so, only {# raid, to his intense
disappointment, that " \ Taft had gone to

Not To Be Tried for Cotton Leak

Washington. May 30 -Theodore H. Price,
of New Tork. Indicted h«re for connection
with the cotton leak scandal of 1908, can
not be prosecuted in the District of Colum

Court of the District to-day. Prices plea
that the grand jury which Indicted him had
a government employe on it was sustained.
Price has similar charges pending against
him in New Tork. and he may have to
stand trial ther*
He is the only one of the four men
charged with conspiracy in connection with
the cotton leak who will not have to face a

S Holmes. 1r . of this city, although r*
lleved by the court's action from the. 1908
indictment, will s*lll have to answer Jhe old
indictment returned in 1905. Holmes was
once tried under these indictments, but the
Jury disagreed Peckham and Haas sought
by habeas corpus proceedings to attack the
1906 indictment and to be released from
custody because a New Tork court on re

indictment charged .no offence Justice

Says- Coleman Came Here Three
Times : Weekly with Keliher.
r Boston. May 20.— Wilson W. Lockhart.
■ who is awaiting trial on th* charge of aid
! ing and abetting. George W. Coleman in the
footing of the National City Bank, of Cam

earlier in the week, took the witness stand'
to-day in the trial of William J. Keliher
on a similar charge.
Lockhart testified that he was employed
! by the bank as a messenger, and that he
substituted for the clerks when they were
out. From June. 1909, to February of this
j year, he said. Coleman went to New York
j on an average of three, nights a week, and
i nearly always in the company of Keliher.
It is alleged that Keliher enticed Coleman
i to obtain the money and go to New York
! to .try to break a faro bank there, which
they were never able to accomplish. Cole
j man. said the witness, would send htm to
; the office of Frank Yon Blarcom. manager
i of a curb brokerage . house, with a check
1 which he exchanged with Yon Blarcom.
i Lockßart then would take the check to the
! Back Bay station, where Coleman and
Keliher • would be waiting for him. This
procedure took place- every time- Coleman
went to New York. Lockhart also said
j that in a cafe in New York he saw Cole
man pass money to Keliher.
Yon Blarcom identified fifty-six checks
which he had given Coleman or Lockhart
in exchange for Colemans checks on the

All the Testimony on Both Sides
Report Not. Liksly To Be Pre
sented Until Congress Meets
in Fall — Economical Inquiry
[From Th« Tribune Boreao-J .
j "Washington, May 20.— The members of th*
Ballinger-Plnchot committee- were plea»
antly surprised to-day when the attorney*
on both sides announced that they tad no
further testimony to offer. "When they had
recovered from their' surprise they awaited
th© pleasure of the lawyers respecting for- •
ther proceedings. Judge Vertreeav counsel
for Secretary BallJnger. said he was wißtaa?
to have the committee proceed to make Its
finding. As all members of the ciniiiiilllaa)
were lawyers and seme of them had ban
Judges, he doubted the necessity of maktn*
arguments. Louis. D Brandeis. counsel for
1 Glavts, said he desired to make an anna
! ment and that Mr Pepper, counsel for
! Gifford Plnchot, was of the same mind. Ha
I also desired permission to file briefs.
[ After considerable discussion it was de
cided to give each side btb hours ?pr argu
! ment. Messrs. Brandeis and Pepper wjQ
i open on Friday of next week and win pre
j sent the greater portion of toelr argument
; Judge Vertrees will speak on- Friday after
t noon and Saturday morning, and Messrs.
I Brandeis and Pepper will close Saturday
afternoon. Following- the close of the argu-
I ment th© attorneys will have fifteen days
In which to file briefs. This means that
the case will not be closed until June 11.
' It Is settled that there will be no formal
\ decision In the case until Congress meets
'in December. Including the testimony MR T
! the Cunningham coal healings, the record
S covers between seven thousand and ssJM
I thousand printed pages. The briefs and •
I arguments will Increase this record by from
! five hundred to a thousand paces. The tact
; that the case will not be finished until tie
I middle- of Jane precludes the possibility «f :
action on the report of the committee st iV
this session, and for this reason there- 's a ■
! general sentiment in favor of Tostponing a,
I report until December. Another reason for !
the, postponement Is th« fact that Senator |
Root is going to Europe and will not ! stars
j until fall Mr. Root has been one at toe
! attentive members of the committee, and it
i is desired that he shall be present wher %
j report Is being made up.
The Inquiry Reviewed.
The committee began Its hearings early .
I in January, and at the start met two days i
! every week. Later three weekly sessions i
I were held, and recently meetings have, teen. ;
j held four times a week. Sessions have !
! been held on forty-five days, and thirty- '
two witnesses have been examined.* Sen
ator Nelson, chairman of the committee, .
will ss able to point with pride to one
; feature of the Inquiry, for it has been. on«»
I of the most economical Investigations «tr«r
conducted by a committee of Congress. .
Mr. Nelson was authorized to expend.ji*
| 000. Many of the witnesses came from xfx» .
' Pacific Coast and had to remain In Wash
! ington several months. One witness cams
from Porto Rico, and several from Alaska.
Ml Exclusive of the cost of printing, which
is not a charge on the committee appro
j priation, the expense of the investigation
! will be less than $15,000, «-• .
; Only one witness^ was examined to-day.
. Frank L. Speulding being recalled by Mr..
> Brandeis to refute statements made- .by A.
' Chrlster.sen, the field agent who succeed**
i Glavis in charge, of the Seattle division.
'Mr Spaulding is a stenographer in the
I Seattle office. His testimony related to the
boxes containing the personal property of
j Glavis in the federal building. It was in
i one of these boxes that the- so-called "com
[ cealed" letters wen- found. The witness
I said he told Mr Christensen that the Glavis
i boxes were in the grand jury room and
j that he had accompanied Christensen to
; this room to look for the stenographic note
book containing dictation from Commis
sioner Dennett. Mr. Christen sen testified
that his first visit to the grand Jury room
1 was on the occasion when he found the
• missing letters.
j On direct examination Mr. Spaulding in-
I timated that he might have taken fhe
missing letters to the grand jury room
and placed them in the Glavis box by mis
take. On cross-examination he became con
fused and said he had no recollection of
any letters being in the packages which he
: took to the grand jury room.
At the beginning of the session Judge
trees submitted various papers which
I were inserted in the record without reading.
' These included the agreement between
Glavts and W. W. Barr. a land speculator
in Seattle, who testified for the prosecution.
j, ,iz Vertrees said this agreement showed
I that Glavis had a pecuniary interest in se
curing timber lands from the government
j and used to acquire these lands, knowledge
of which he had obtained while employed
by the- government. Portions of tr-e record
' in the Cunningham coal cases were also
offered In evidence. According to this rec
ord Judge Vertrees declared, tt appears
' that Glavis and Jones deliberately deceived
! the Cunningham claimants. It was shown.
I he said, that the affidavit of Clarence Cun
; ningham, prepared by Secretary Ballin#*r
wren he was not in public office, that there
was no agreement between the Cunning
hams and the Gugsenheims before the loca
tion of the Cunningham claims was true.
