Miles, the head of the American army, in full uniform, occupied a seat or two in the rear. He was well groomed, and he watched the services with apparent in terest. There was some comment about the church that Rear Admiral Schley, with whom Admiral Sampson had been involved in an unpleasant controversy, was not among the galaxy of naval officers who had gathered to pay a last tribute to the dead. At the Richmond Hotel, where Admiral Schley lives, it was said that he was suf fering from a severe cold, contracted on his recent visit to Memphis. Strict orders were left at the hotel office that the admiral did not care tc be disturbed. He did, however, consent to see a reporter f''r The Evening Star. The admiral said that he was suffering from a sore throat, an<l the sound of his voice bore out the truth of his statement. He expressed him self as being grieved at not being able to be present at the funeral of his brother na val officer, and he spoke feelingly of Admi ral Sampson. The space in the main auditorium of the church not occupied by those persons al readj mentioned was filled with represen tatives of societies, with uniformed army ? ..I?avy officers, men whose names are familiar to all, with persons of high social station and also with the humble workers in the department bureaus and in the navy yard, who had labored under Admiral Sampson s direction in the past. Just back of the mourners' pew sat the Supreme Court members, the white head of ki j ?e Fulltr being conspicuous. Hehind the Supreme Court were the select committees from the United States Senate and House of Representatives; and then many individual senators and representa t ves, so that the body of the church was completely filled before the hour for the b* ginning of the funeral services. The Casket Borne by Sailors. The scene within the church was indeed affecting. The concourse of distinguished peisonagi s awaited with sadness the arrival of the dead. The casket bearing the dead admiral was carried by eight sailors dressed in the uniform of the navy. The honorary pallbearers, with solemn tread, preceded the casket down the main aisle of the church. The casket was draped with the union jack, and above was a wealth of flowers sent by friends of the dead. The pallbearers took their places in pews on either side of the altar. The sailors occupied seats on the right. President Roosevelt sat with head bowed as he listened to the "Dead March in Saul " played by Organist Harvey Murray. Many ox' the assemblage craned their necks to see everything that transpired. When the cas ket was placed in position in the front of the altar two naval officers placed upon it a number of bouquets of roses and wreaths. Simple Services. The services were simple and impressive. A male quartet, composed of Messrs. W. D. McFarland, P. B. Turpin, P. P, Reeside and J. W. Humphrey, sang with much feeling "Lead, Kindly Light." There was the read ing of a Scriptural lesson. Mrs. Thomas C. Noyes sang "Some Sweet Day, By and By." The Rev. Teunis S. Hamlin,"pastor of the | Church of the Covenant, offered a fervent prayer. He thanked God that Admiral j Sampson had been enabled to accomplish great results which, he said, history would | record. He prayed for the navy and the army, those who are far away from home and who are engaged in the work of fur thering the interests of their government. He prayed that their lives be spared, and they be enabled to return to their homes safe and sound. While the pastor was in prayer Presi dent Roosevelt's head was bowed to touch the back of the seat in front. The prayer was brief and unostentatious. It seemingly touched the hearts of every one who heard it. A tear came to the eye of little Ralph Sampson, son of the dead admiral, but he wiped it away with his kerchief and tried to be brave. The male quartet sang "Oh, Paradise," and benediction was pronounced by Reverend E. K. RawSson, the pastor of the church attended by Admiral Sampson in his old home. The sailors bore the casket from the altar to the street. President Roosevelt and his party followed immediately after the honorary pallbearers. The organist played Chopin's "Funeral March," and the funeral assemblage quiet ly wended its way from the church. Many Floral Offerings. The chancel was more than filled with floral offerings sent by friends of Admiral Sampson. The Loyal Legion and many of the other orders to which the dead naval officer belonged sent remembrances. Sev eral wagons were required to convey these offerings to the cemetery. The official committee on behalf of the Commandery 6f the District of Columbia, Military Order of the Loyal Legion, was composed of Col. George L. Andrews, U S A., commander; Capt. John R. Bartlett, U. S. N., senior vice commander; Maj. William P. Huxford, U. S. A., recorder; Rear Ad miral John G. Walker, U. S. N., ex-com mand r; Brig. Gen. Cecil Clay, U. S.

SCENE AT THE BESIDENCE. neer Commissioner, represented the District of Columbia officially at the funeral. After the Church Services. The beautiful hymn, "Nearer, My God to Thee," was played by the Marine Band, sta tioned in the small parking in front of the church, as the flower-laden casket was borne from the church door to the hearse. The opening: note of that impressive dirge was the signal of the appearance of the funeral party. A small bughler sounded a call, and instantly the entire military escort came to a present and the soldiers, sailors, marines and cadets drawn up on the west side of Connecticut avenue stood like statues in an attitude of reverence until the entire party was seated in carriages and the bugle sounded the signal for the line to move. The streets and parking were crowd ed with people, and the windows, doorways and other vantage points were occupied by human sympathizers. Practically all the people removed their hats or lowered their heads as the casket was borne through the crowded streets to its final resting place. Procession to Arlington When everything was in readiness the funeral party proceeded on its solemn way to Arlington in the following order: Platoon of mounted police, Sergt. Hart man commanding; Rear Admiral S W. Ter ry and staff, adjutant general, aids, 4th Battery of Artillery, Capt. S. M. Foote, commanding; Naval Academy Band, bat talion of cadets, t'nited States Naval Acade my, Commander Charles E. Colahan, U. S. N., commanding: band of United States Marine Corps, battalion of United States marines, Maj. J. M. Wood, commanding; band of United States flagship Oylmpla; battalion of United States seamen. Cart. W. H. Bronson, commanding. The route of the procession was through Connecticut avenue to K street, to Penn sylvania avenue, to 24th street to M street, and thence by way of the Aqueduct bridge to Arlington, the silent city of the dead. The entire line of march was thronged with silent spectators. It was a long march, but the weather was fine, and in about an hour from the time of leaving the.church the head of the procession entered the cemetery grounds. As the Aqueduct bridge . was crossed the gun3 of the President's yacht Slyph at the navy yard boomed out a "funeral salute of minute guns. At the gates of the cemetery the artil lerymen. the bluejackets, the1 marines and the cadets formed a double line on either side of the broad carriageway and present ed arms as the remains passed into the cemetery. Rear Admiral Terry, with his staff, headed the jsroall funeral escort to the grave. This escort consisted of one company of naval cadets and the Marine Band. Consigned -to the Grave. The burial ceremonies were simple, being confined to a prayer for the dead, the read ing of a psalm and music. At their conclu sion the saluting battery of the 4th Artil lery, stationed outside the gates, boomed out three salvos. This salute was in lieu of the usual volleys of musketry over the grave. As the remains were lowered into the earth the Marine Band played the beautiful hymn, "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and then followed the sounding of "taps" by a bugler stationed at the head of the open grave, marking the last earthly ceremony over the dead officer. Storrs Class Club Entertains. With a reception and a musical and liter ary entertainment the Storrs Class Club or" the Sunday school of the Fifth Congre gational Church celebrated its second an niversary Wednesday evening In the W. C. T. U. parlors. The rooms were tastefully decorated with flags and cut flowers, while from the ceilings, in graceful folds and fes toons, hung the class colors of purple and yellow. A portrait of the late Dr. Storrs, whose name the class bears, occupied a prominent position. As part of the program piano solos were rendered by Miss Carroll and Mr. Walter Olsen. The class quartet, composed of Messrs. Bfanchard. Montgomery, Simon' s and Tremain, gave several selections in ex cellent style. At the conclusion of the pro gram President Olsen introduced the speak er of the evening. Rev. George Bailey, pres ident of Sheldon Jackson College, Salt Lake City, Utah,, who took for his theme, "A Definite Purpose in Life." Following Dr. Bailey's stirring address an Informal re ception was held, during which the guests were served with refreshments. The suc cess of the occasion was due to the untiring efforts of the entertainment committee, J. F. Robb, D. W. Montgomery and A. A. Kahler.

Duvall. has ad vised the District* ? Coijrfmissionefs that Rachel A. P. Dyer' secured Judgment against the District April 25, 1902, before C. S. Bundy, Justice qU' the peace, for $141.1!0, as damages for personal injuries alleged to have been Sustained by her as a result of a fall Into a depression In the sidewalk of 3d street southwest between K and L streets on March 1, 1902, occa sioned by the slnfcjng of dirt over "a re cently laid water -jjialn. \ "The testimony jidduo?d at the trial." says Mr. Duvall, *fch?wed that the plain tiff was quite painfully injured, both of her ankles being sprained and both limbs severely bruised; &a? 4fbe was prevented from following her'usual occupation, which was that of a dressmaker, and that she had been put to an expense of about $10 for medicines and medical attention; also that she has not yet recovered. After duly considering the testimony I conclude that it is not desirable to appeal the case, and am of the opinion that the Judgment should be allowed to stand." The Commissioners have agreed to let the judgment stand, as suggested by Mr. Duvall.

"Did you ever see In the country a chick en run across the road and observe that It will alwp.ys try to half run, half fly In rront of the horse which It .may be trying? to escape?" asked an'old Washington railroad man of a Star man today. "Well, that trait is essentially the trait of a chicken, and I have run over half a dozen at a time when they thought they could beat the horse's hoofs in a race to a finish. Chickens, as Is known, have 'no sense;' that their brains are very small, and the so-called animal Instinct which runs along In parallel lines with human Intelli gence is very narrow and imperfectly de veJoped. "Human beings are as thoughtless as the chicken is senseless. The 'sad accident' I read of In The Star recently, where a young lady in trying to beat to a finish a loco motive by running across the track in front of the train in the foolhardy belief that she could 'get over in time," reminded me of the chicken. The young lady unhappily lost both arms, and how she escaped with her life I cannot conceive. "As I am an old railroad man who has seen many other men mangled and torn be cause they were In Buch a hurry to 'get over the track before the train,' if on a steam railroad, or across the street If on a electric car, I am content to wait until the train, or car, or vehicle, for that '.natter, passes, and then I go behind it. And I never fail to take the precaution to look In the opposite direction to detect whether a car is approaching from the other way. "Nearly every day I read in The Star of Instances where people are either killed or maimed In their efforts to get 'ahead' of the train or the street cars. It seems to be characteristic of the pushing American to rush on blindly and escape death usually by his coat tails. He will laugh over the 'close call' he had. Sometimes he Is after ward placed In a close wooden box and burled after the coroner has sat upon his corpse, but these killings appear to have little influence upon others who like to try the foolish experiment. The case of the young lady Is particularly sad, as tne loss of two arms must be almost equivalent to death. "If the public would only b,ear In mind that railroad men themselves seldom take such risks and are too conscious of the ter rible danger to which they would be ex posed In addition to the ordinary dangers on the rail, and place thtmaelves yoluata rlly within striking distance of an engine, the puMic would be more cautious, and these distressing 'trylng-to-get-ahead-of the-train accidents' would be largely re duced." Men's Club Holds Business Session. The Men's Club of the Pro-Cathedral of St. Mark held its last meeting for the year at the parish hall of the church last night. Reports of committees were read and the condition of the club was shown to be prosperous. Secretary Charles Junken read a statement showing the membership to be seventy-one and that the visiting list dur ing the year numbered 150 attendants. Mr. Wallace, retiring president, made a speech, In which he referred to the Increas ing number of members of the club and Its good Influence shown during Its three years of existence. The election of officers for the ensuing year took place and resulted In the follow ing selections: President, Dr. J. B. Little wood; vice president. Capt. Wm. P. Mac Nulty; secretary, Wm. E. Grimes, and treasurer, Wm. B. Marlow. The executive committee elected consists of Richard Ham ilton, H. 8. Childs, Rev. G. F. Peter and Wm. T. Kent. A rising vote of thanks was tendered the retiring officers of the club for their faith ful performance of duty during the year just closed. Ordered Before Medical Board. Col. William A.

Arraingned in Police Court Charged With Assault. James Mahoney and his two sons Wil liam and James, Jr., wore defendants in the Police Court today on a charge of having assaulted Spencer L?. Woodruff while near the government printing office Monday last. The evidence developtd that William had accused Woodruff, who Is a lather, of be ing a scab. The latter resented the use of the epithet and a fight followed, during which Woodruff was- attacked by William and James, Jr. The defendants entered a denial, but the court said the evidence was against the sons. In disposing of the case Judge Klir.bal! remarked that the attack on Woodruff wao uncalled for. "He has a perfect right to belong to a union, or not. Just as he pleases, and when the evidence shows that a man is assaulted because he Is not a member of a union or for any other cause, I'll impose a fine," hta honor declared. The case against Mahoney, senior, wan dismissed, while the sous paid a tine of ?5 each. Hid Money as a Joke. Martha Underwood, colored, was ht Id for the action of the grand Jury by Judge Kim ball In the Police Court today, after having had a preliminary hearing on a charge of grand larceny. Unless she Is able to fur nish bond of 1500 for her appearance when wanted she will be detained at the Jail un til the case is disposed of In the upper court. Mrs. H. Bcott of 4S8 3d street southwest, the complainant, reported to the court that $100 in bills was taken from a bureau drawer In a second-floor room of her house several days ago. Martha was arrested by the police of the fourth precinct. She told the officers that she hid the money for a Joke. It was re covered from under a bucket In Mrs. Scott's back yard. Hopeless Case.
