' LOOK UP HIS ANTECEDENTS All Facts Nw Bafore Members of tho Sonato. i Senator Dubois Pays High Tribute to the Lawyer, and the Man Who Hopes to Succeed Him. TRIBUNE- SPECIAL. Washington, Jan, 2. As soon "as an nouncement wa.5 mad In this city that Hon. W. E. Borah of Eome, Ida., had been seleoted as an attorney to repre sent Senator Reed Smoot oi Utah in defense of his title to a seat ln'tiie United States Senate, the members of that body put Into motion the-machinery which every Sent-tor possesses to obtain Information concerning Mr. Borah, bis standing, his antecedents, and the reasons for his- selection in this Important case. All the facts concern ing him are now before the members of the Senate and'lhey understand Ihe situation thoroughly. From a member of that body It was ascertained today that Mr. Borah i.s a splendid lawyer, a great "orator, a man of high character, never a pettifogger, always judicial and exceptionally com petent as an adocat. - DUBOIS'S VIEW. Senator Dubois has said of him: "I am very .proud of Mr. Borah as a citi zen of my State. He. is a credit to the community and the common weaith in which he lives. He Is my personnl friend and I am his friend. 1 cannot say anything about his retention in this case, however." ANOTHER OPINION. The other Senators have been made quite familiar with the history of Mr. Borah, one of them having received a telegram which reads as follows: "Borah Is the peerless political leader and orator who led Idaho Republicans to victory In 1002. The people elected a Legislature with a Republican ma orlty for the purpose of sending Mr. Borah to the Senate. He was defeated In that aspiration by the Mormon church, through whose agency he id now employed." WAS SILVER REPUBLICAN. It Is known here now that Mr. Borah was a Silver Republican leader In 1S96 and In 1S98, but that he went back to the Republicans In 1900. His Republi can leadership In 1302 was so brilliant that his selection for the Senate to succeed Mr. Hellfeld was a foregone conclusion. When the Legislature met, however, some of the old straight Re publican leaders objected to nendlng a Silver Republican to the Senate wh.en they had a straight Republican major ity, and so there was. a wrangle in the Legislature, which resulted In a deal whereby the Mormon balance of power was thrown to Mr. Heyburn, and he wa3 elected to the Senate in place of Mr. Borah. DENOUNCED HEYBURN. It is also known in Washington that when Mr. Borah was defeated his bril liant eloquence was let loose In scath ing denunciation of Senator Heyburn and his Mormon friends. The things he said about Senator Heyburn aro still fresh In his memory and It is not be ikved hero that Senator Heyburn gives very hearty indorsement to the selec tion of Mr. Borah as counsel for Sena tor Smoot. At any rate Senator Hey burn has not said anything of a com plimentary nature concerning Mr. Bo rah up to date. WHAT POLITICIANS SEE. Men of political discernment, and nil Senators are' men of political discern ment, see far beyond the surface of af fairs like this and they reailze the pos sibility. If not the extreme probability of more that a good retainer for Mr. Borah in this case, something addi tional in the way of Mormon support for election to the United States Sen- ' ' t EXPECTED WAR WILL J BE DECLARED IN A I' VERY FEW DAYS - 4- 4- Peking. Jan. 3. Information In 4- 4- the possession of tho best informed 4- 4- diplomats In Peking convinces 4- 4- them that war Is Inevitable, possl- 4- 4- bly within a few days. 4- ate to succeed Senator Dubois four four years hence. IS ANOTHER REVELATION. Thus it will be seen that the selection of an attorney for the Mormon apostle means jnuch more than the retention of an ordinary lawyer in an ordinary case. It Is another revelation of the determi nation of the Mormon church so far as possible to hold tho balance of power In a sufficient number of States to en able them to have the balance of power ultimately In the United States Senate.

SOLEMN DIRGES ON WINDS Bolls Toll far an Hour In Chi cago While City Mourns. Priests and Ministers Go From Fu neral to Funeral, and Offer Con solation to the Living. Chicago, Jan. 2. Church bells tolling at noon, business activity .checked, many celebrations postponed and long lines of funerals making their way to the outlying districts where the ceme teries are situated these circumstances today evidenced Chicago's outward grief for the victims of the Iroquois theater disaster. PrlestR and ministers of the gospel went from funeral to fu neral today, as they will tomorrow and Monday. The unidentified dead will be kept as long av possible at the morgues. If no one comes to lay claim to the bodies they will be burled at the city's expense. By common assent of the clergy, "Lead. Kindly Light," the hymp vWrltten by Cnrdlnal Newman, is being sung at all the funerals. BUSINESS PLACES CLOSE. The city hall, except absolutely nec essary departments, was closed today.. The Board of Trade closwd an hour earlier than usual, and a number of mercantile and manufacturing estab lishments also closed early. The large department stores closed at noon. ThIrty:four teachers in the public schools are known to have lost their lives in the fire, and the schools will be cloyed Monday In their memory. REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD. When It was 12 o'clock the chimes of a North Side church tolled a dirge and the northeast wind carried It over the city. Before the first notes bad died away another chime further south sounded a mournful Intonation. Then a hundred bells broke forth In a mighty diapason, whose Iron moans seemed to reach the gray clouds and echo back again In solemn concord. The bells tolled for an hour. As the loneo of the city's dirge in the scattered towers spread over the city, more persons paused and listened In sorrow and awe than on any occasion In the minds of the people. Many stood with bare heads as on the day of the burial of President McKlnley. A snowstorm which prevailed ndded to the solemnity. An Intense quietness In the atmosphere Itself, a holiday ap-. pearancc nnd the numerous funeral cor teges as they passed slowly through the storm, while the church bells were slowly tolling, combined to make the occarion one ns peculiarly cheerless as It was solemn and Impressive. EXPRESSIONS OF GRIEF. The tolling of tho bells was in re sponse to an expressed wish of Mayor Harrison. The Mayor said: "Tolling the church bells throughout the city on Chicago's day of mourning for the dend who perished in the fire at the Iroquois theater would be an ap propriate expression of grief. The sug gestion was made to me by a clergy man, and I wish it to be published so that pastors may carry it out. I strongly urge them to begin the tolling of bells at noon and to let the mourn ful sound continue for an hour. Such an expression of sorrow would bring to tho hearts and minds of every one the memory of Chicago's terrible loss." Cold in Nebraska. Omnhu. Jan. 2.

Tho at tack of the police from the front was us sudden na had been the fire alarm, add served In a moment to quiet tho crowd and .avert what could, not have failed to havo been a murderous stampede.

Normally these lights fitted Into niches in tho masonry, but whoa In use were swung out In order that tho lights might be thrown upon the performers upon tho stage. Their greatest width when open was fourteen Inches.

FOUND BURNED HAY. rjH Witness H. V. Wlnchell. head geoio- ijH gist for the Amalgamated, today testi- 'H fled to discovering vast amounts of hay jjl in the raise just abovo the place where il the Amalgamated miners were working, fl and this he -declared was burned, the 11 stltllng smoke being forced in on the Amalgamated men to prevent them from carrying out the orders of tho United vl Stutes court In making an inspection of IH the Michael Davitt to determine how 'H much ore Helnze Is alleged to have ille- )'H gaily extracted from the Michael' Davitt veins. pH FREE FIGHT THREATENED. At one stage of the inquest County Attorney Peter Breen and L. O. Evans, IH attorney for the Hclnxo interests, en- !H gaged in a dispute that threatened to develop Into a free fight, but the. matter IH was finally settled- by an amicable ad- tjjl Justment. According to the testimony of eH Superintendent Adams of the Boston & iH Montana company and Foreman Georg'o SH E. ioultrop of the Pennsylvania mine lH on the very day of the explosion the iH carpenters built a heavy door to prevent jH access to the Pennsylvania from tho jl Rarus, and the two men who wero killed ijH were finishing the job of calking up the 'iH cracks In and around this door to keep jl out the smoke. The raise Is what Is IH called in mining parlance a, downcast lH raise, and all smoke found Its way down ll and out through the GOO-foot Pennsyl- iH vania level. MEN THREW ROCKS. iH According to the testimony of miners who worked the other two shifts against that of Oleson and Divcl from the time the first hole was blasted from the raise Into the old workings of the Michael kH Davitt they were continually obstructed fH by inen from above, who threw rocks '-hfH und other heavy materiai'down the hole, ilH besides setting off powder and blank fjl fuses to scare them from their work. ijl Many times the men were compelled to leave their work on account of tho smoke sent down from above, blinding , and cHoklng them so that they could not iM stay In the raise. All the evidence adduced at today's H hearing would seem to place the blame H entirely on the men employed- by the ll Rarus company, nnd probably in partlc- il ulnr on Nick Treloar, foreman of the ' Rarus, and Thomas Knowles, shift boss of the same mine. HEARD THREATENING TALK. f Two witnesses, Michael Ostronlch and Jll his partner, Thomns E. Bonnell, who 11 wore relieved by the two men who wero iffl killed, testified to hearing threatening MH conversations from above them.
