Funchal Pays Respects
FUNCHAL, Madcira, Apr,, 1 (By Thr
As ociated Press ,. Charles I. former
Emperor ot Austria and King of Ilun
gary, died here this morning at 11:30
o'clock. Thr exiled monarch had been
sufFeYing from pneumonia for more
than a week,
Charles retained consciousness until
the last His wife, tr,r former F.mprcss
7-itn, and their eldcsl son, Francis Jo?
seph Otto. onetiroc heir appaTent to
the throne of Austria-Hungary, were
at his bedside when tliecnd came.
Zita, when the condition of her hus?
band became critical, desircd that the
physicians in attendance pcrmit her Lo
undergo the operation of blood trans
fusion in an effort to save the former
monarch, but thr physicians refuscd
their consont.
Thr> body of Charles will be om
balmed and the expectation hero is
that it will bc taken back to Austria
for burial.
On the announcement of the death
of Charles all the commercial houaea
in Funchal elosed their doors as a
token of rcspect.
Handbills Sprcad tbe Newa
VIENNA, April i (By The Assoctated
Press).?The news of the death of for?
mer Emperor Charles became known at
dusk on a rainy Saturday half-holiday
through hurriedly printed handbills
which were scattcrcd throughout the
city.
There ^as an unexpected display of
emotion by the people 0f vienna. ' Pu
trons who were dining in the better
class restaurants immediately tho now*
became know,, left their tables and
thronged the streets. The cafes also
were deserted. Many persons broke
'nto tears as word of the death of the
former monarch was pas^ed about.
lhe general belief prevails in mon?
arch,al circles that the passing of the
former ruler will servc to consolidate
the vanous factions, throwing together
the outrightCarlists and legitfmista in
oupport of Francis Joseph Otto. It is
felt that these adherents of Charles
will rally round hia eldest ser and
throw their efforta against the. l-'ricd
nch party and thr so-called electives
Sent iiiieni i> I ....il..
Sentimental aympathy prevails for
former Emprcss Zita because of her an
proachmg accouchement. She js not
however regarded as a polltleal factor.'
masmuch as the law 0f the house of
Hapsburg g,ves her rio legal rights
while the fact that. she is of alien blood*

hJHV?. a'/-ead-Y, i8 much :;Ppculation
here regarding the efforts that are cx
pected to be made to bury the body of
Charles ln the Church of the Capucnin
here. Every Hapsburg king since the
year 1622 rests in the imperial vault in
the church, and every prince and
pnnceBB of the blood royal, exce.pt one
hes there. Princess Louise, daughter
of Maria 1 heresa, alone rests on for?
eign soil?in France.
The belief is held here that the
radical Socialists would regard the
burial of Charles in Vienna as a dis
turbing incident, which would h<?
hkely to rally the monarehists of
Austria, Hungary and Bavaria, and
possibly of Prussia, to a great'cere
monial display. The Church of the
Capuchins is virtually private property.
The title of the House of Hapsburg to
it was granted with the proviso that it
should forever be the burial place for
members of that dynasty.
Stormy Career Is Endcd
In Death of Charles
Three Major Tragedies Put
Him on Auslrian Throne for
Short and Eventful Reign
Charles, the last of the Hapshurgs to
reign, was on the throne for les3 than
two years. His predecessor, Francis
Joseph, had been a monarch for sixty
seven years. Thus. with the. longeat
and one of tbe shortest reigns in the
history of the Hapsburg dynasty ended
the line that for more than 800 years
had exercised unbroken sovereign'ty as
Roman emperors, German kings, em?
perors of Austria, kings of Hungary,
Bohemia and Spain and what not other
dignitaries. Yet it was a line which
could boast of not more than two sov
ereigns of the first rank?-Charles V
and Maria Theresa.
The man who has just died had little
thought in early years of ever coming
to the dual throne, and it was only
through a series of three major trage?
dies that he was exalted to that unen
viable eminence. He was descended
from Maria Theresa through her sec?
ond son, Emperor Leopold II; the eld
est of Leopold's ten sons, Emperor
Francis II?these were emperors of
Rome, Francis II being the last of that
line ?and Francis's second son, Francis
Charles. The last named archduke was
a brother oi Ferdinand, first Emperor
of Austria, who was childless. Francis
Charles had four sons. of whom the
eldest was Francis Joseph, Emperor of
Austria; the second was Maximilian,
the "Emperor of Mexico," and the third
was Charles Louis, who had three sons.

Robcrl Rranwell Roosevelt, jr? of
Bayshorc, L, !., a son of Roberl B.
Roosevelt, of Washington, and acousin
of Franklin D, Roosevelt, former As
sistani Secretary of the Navy, died in
Knickerbocker Hospital yesterday*
morninp from injurios suffered on Fri
tay night in tho vicinity of Columbus
Avenue and Eighticth Street. The poliee
believe that Roosevelt was eitherstruck
by an automobile or fcl) from one.
Late last night detectives from Ihe
Sixty-eighth Strecl nolino station had
been unable to trace his movements
prior to the accident,
David /,-ill.i . twenty-seven year? old,
of 266 Keap Street, Brooklyn, a driver
of a city bus, was loeked up in the
West Sixty-eighth Street station last
night, charged with homicide, It is
alleged by detectives who nrro.-tod him
that it was a bua driven by Zalkis
which struck young Roosevelt.
Cnrds and documents in Roosevelt's
pocketa supplied the flrst clue to his
identity, but it was not. until Mrs.
Tucker K. Sands, who is Roosevelt's
wifo's mother, who lives at the Hotel
Lorraine, called up tho poliee after she
read in an afternoon paper an account
that the dead man was definitely iden
tified. Mr. Roosevelt married Miss Vir
ginia Lee Minor, of Richmond, Va., in
October. 1921. Mrs. Roosevelt is now
at Norfolk, Va. She. has been notified
of his death nnd will return to the
home of her father-in-law at Sayvllle,
L. I., where the funeral will take place!
Operalor Says Hc Was Hit by Aato
A -rrtain amount. of mystery sur
rounds the circumstances of ihe acci?
dent, although the police afflrm that
they nro satisfled that. tho death was
accidental and was not. the result of
an assault or a hold-up. A telephone
operator employed at tho Orleans Hotel
told the poliee that she Baw the dead
man struck by an automobile as he
was erossincr Columbus Avenue, while
a heavy wind and rain storm was rag
ins: on Friday night. He was thrown
violently against an elevated rallwav
support, she said. Passersby pickecl
him up and carried him to' a luneh
room at 420 Columbus Avenue. Patrol
man Frank Curran was called. and he
called the Kniekerhocker Hospital
ambulance. -"Roosevelt was unconscious
by this time and he died yesterday
morning without recovering conscious
ness. His body was taken to the
Morgue,
Dr. Everett W. Could. who attended
Roosevelt at the hospital, said that
death was caused by a fractured skull
and that he was satisfled the injuriea
indicated he had been struck by an
automobile.
Mnney Not Taken
The fact that his watcli, chain and
money as well as othe.r personal jewel
ry were intact indicates, the police say,
that Roosevelt was not the victim of
hold-up men. The dead mati's clothinp;
will be turned over to the Distriet
Attorney's office for an investigation if
furthcr evidence warrants such a stcp.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert B. Roosevelt,
the young man's oarents, visited the
morgue yesterday afternoon. when the
former identitied the body as that of
his son. He said that for some days
young Roosevelt had been staying in
New York as the guest of W. H. Dan

Eighty industrial crusaders, pos

in cash, are to sail from New York
April 8 aboard the steamship Adriatic,
bound for the Kuznets Basin in the
Ural Mountains. There they are to
join a communistic mining enterprise
headed by Big Bill Haywood, the one

of the "wobblies" before the Depart?

ihe I. W. W. a hazardous affair.
In this first squad are eleven engi

The others are carpenters and miscel

and other structures in preparation for
the 6,000 other American3 who are ex
pected to follow them.
Each of these men is paying his own
way. and the transportation is $130.
They are rcquired also to provide them?
selves with warm clothing sufficient to
last two years, $100 in cash for food
and at least $100 worth of tools. They
are pledging themselveb to stay in Si

From Thr Tribune** European Bureau
(Copyrl&hl. 1922, is>? Torlt rrlbune Inc.)
LONDON, Aprii 1.?Political interest
is now centerod on the Genoa economic
conference, scheduled to bepin n week
from Monday. It. will be the subject of ,
momentous drbstc in the House of
Commons Monday, whon Premier Lloyd i
George take, the unusual course of
asking in advance n \otc ot' confidence
on the British government'a conference
pol icy.
'inc of the newspapor critics calla it ;
;, "coupon for Genoa," while another a
bit more friendly describes it as his
"return licket."
Lord George's parliamentary indorse
ment seems assured, but the fact re- j
mains that few people here or any
where else hold optimistc views aa to
the outcome of the Genoa conference,
The majority consider it a bugc
pamble with the chance of auccess
relativelv small. but then Europe has
grown accustomed to gambles in the
last, stven years.
A larpe part of the British delcga
tion left for Genoa to-day, but. Lloyd
George and most of the other member.;
plan to depart on a special train Fri?
day. Not since thu Paris conference
has the British dclegation sent so larpe
a delegation lo an international gath
ering. As Parliamcnt adjourns next
week until the end of the nionth, the
local political situation will bc e\
tremely ctniet and Lloyd George will
have a grand opportunity to launch one
of his spcctacular coups during the
interini.
To Take United States Advice
Lloyd George may be expected to
advise the European rcprcsentatives at
Genoa to come to a general agreement
on reorganization and rcconstruction
methods and then ge*; to work. That
is the advice which the American rrov
ernment offered in its reply dec'iining
the invitation to Genoa. As Ameriea
seems to believe that tho initiative
should bn taken on this side nothing
remains but for European countries to
get to work and prove that. American
co-operation will be mutually advan
tageoua.
The British Premier will take the
lead in urging general co-operation
and he is assured of support from
Italy, Germany and most of the smaller
nations with France taking a passive
position until it is assured that no
reparations bombs are going to be
hurled. The chief difference between
Lloyd George and Poincare has been
the question as to whether the con?
ference should be held on the basis of
the Cannes resolution or somcthing
wholly different.
Lloyd George. because of the pres
sure brought. by the Conservatives, has
been compelled to accept an extremely
narrow policy, but it is doubtful wheth?
er he will accept these limitations
when he gets to Genoa. In the whole
world of statesmen there is no one
quite so skillful as Lloyd George in
taking advantage of some momentary
position?his cleverness is not unlike
that of a champion featherweight boxer
in a squared circle,
Ten-Ycar Military Holidav
With Washington as a precedent, tbe
Premier may be expected to BUggest a
military holidav along the lines of Ar
ticle 6 of the Cannes resolutions. A
ten-year military holiday in Europe
coming on top of the naval holidav
reaehed at Washington would go far
toward re-establishing trade and also
restoring Lloyd George's political pres
tlge. If he succeeded in scoring here
the Premier might go so far as sug
gesting the immediate recognition of
the Soviet government.
Had the American government seen
its way to take an active part in the
Genoa conference Lloyd George's posi?
tion would have been entirely different,
but under the present circumstanees
the most he. can hope to get out of the
conference is some sort of general
trading agreement with Russia.
There is a feeling here that now
that th? Senate has so handsomely
supported tho Admlnistration Ameriea
will take a rather different vlew of
European affairs, but most obscrvcrs
believe that the change of attitude will
be gradual. That Ameriea will accept
the obligations and responsibillties of
her unique position in world affairs is

j towel around her mouth.
Martha lay in the kitchen until after

The cry of politics waa raised in
many quarters, especially among the
friends of the discharged officials andj
Democrats in Congress. Senator Cara
way, of Arkansas, will bring the matter
up on the floor of the Senate Monday,
will demand an explanation from the
Administration and will insist that the
charges against the dismissed em?
ployees be laid before the Senate and
thus made public. Senator Caraway
and other Democrats assert that the
dismissals are political and are made
for the purpose of enabling Republi
cans to be appointed. Friends of the
deposed persons said that under the
civil service law a civil service em
ployee, before he is dismissed, is en
titled to be served with a copy of any
charges and specifications and given
an opportunity to reply. Thus far, it
is said, the dismissed officials have not
received copies of charges. On the
other hand, the Department of Justice
is understood to view the dismissala
as legal.
The Administration stands on the
announcement that the dismissals were
"for the good of the service,'' and
the Treasury Department says the re
movals were in the interest of economy
