LAID TO RESTAT HOOK Funeral of Late John Hay Held Today AT CLEVELAND, OHIO THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRES IDENT IN ATTENDANCE. Members and ex-Members of Present Cabinet and Many Distinguished Officials at Simple Ceremony. CLEVELAND, Ohio. July 5.-At almost exactly noon today the body of John Hay was laid to rest In Lake View cemetery. Around the open grare at the last moment stood with bowed heads the President and Vice President of the United States, members and ex-members of the present cabinet and men who had In former years served with the dead Secretary In the official family of President McKlnley. There were many others who willingly would have paid a tribute of honor and re spect to Mr. H&y. but It was the wlsta of his family that the funeral sfhould be con ducted for John Hay?the man they knew and loved In private life, and not for the brilliant and forceful premier whose name Is honored wherever clean and successful statesmanship la esteemed among men. The assemblage at his funeral and around his grave was therefore small. The visible honors accorded him In death were In a ratio directly Inverse to those freely given to him In life, and perhaps no greater testlmony to the worth of the man could have been given than the quiet manner In which his countrymen, who appreciated his charac ter and achievements, stood aside at his family's wish, to take hostage of the future for the endurance of his fame. The events of the day commenced with the arrival of President Roosevelt's train at 9 a.m. and closed with Its departure at The funeral Itself was held between 11 and 12 o'clock, the Interment being at noon. Arrival of President's Train. ^ hen at 0 o clock the special train carry ing President Roosevelt and the members of his cabinet arrived at the depot of the Pennsylvania road a reception committee composed of members of the chamber of commerce, headed by President Ambrose Swasey. was In waiting, and as the train stopped Mr. Swasey stepped quickly for ward, entered the President's car and greet ed him. The other members of the recep tion committee were then presented to the President and the members of the cabinet. A short conversation ensued between Pres ident Roosevelt and Mr. Swasev relative to the arrangements which had been made for the participation of the presidential party, and then the President, with a quick nod of the head, signifying tfcat he understood walked quickly from the train toward his carriage, accompanied by Mr. Swasey. As soon as they had taken their seats the members of the cabinet and the reception committee entered the other carriages and. headed by the hard-rldlng members of Troop A. the procession of carriages moved off at a smart trot for the chamber of com merce, two miles away, where the body of Mr. Hay lay in state. The President's Party. In the presidential party were Leslie M. Shaw, Secretary of the Treasury; Charles J. Bonaparte. Secretary of the Navy; James Wilson. Secretary of Agriculture; E. A. Hitchcock. Secretary of the Interior; Victor H. Metcalf, Secretary of Commerce and La bor; Postmaster General George B. Cortel you. Attorney General William H. Moody, senator P. C. Knox of Pennsylvania, former Attorn.'y General; Charles Emory Smith former Postmaster General; Paul" Morton' former Secretary of the Navy, and Elihu Root, former Secretary of War. In addi tion there were the Pr'sldent's stcnogra ph*-r, M. A I.atta, and the President's sec etary. William J. Loeb, jr.. and Dr. Rixey surgeon general of the navy. It w.is the express*! W]<|, of Mrs. Hay that President Roosevelt should be allowed to see the face of his S cretary again, If he dt.>iied to do so. When the matter was mentioned to the President he declined to o.sturli th" existing arrangements in the tightest degree and the casket was not opened. An enormous crowd had gathered In front of the chamber of commerce to see the coming of the President and the de parture of tlie funeral, and a strong detail of poli. e was ssar.v to k-ep them in ' ? ? '>y side with Mr. Swasey, and c.osely follow# d by Vice President Fair bank- who. in company with Gov. Her r-' k. met the President at the depot, and m- Fibers of the cabinet and reception ? ornmittee, the President passed slowly "rig tli. hall toward the door of the au "? 1 um in which the body lay. The two -ntries on guard at the door fell back w.th presented arms, and g!v ng them a owirk nervous salute the President entered and stood by the casket. Body Not Viewed. The members of the presidential party followed, and when all had entered the doors were swung and the sentries re sumed their guard once more. There was a brief jrnuse. during which the president and members of the cabinet stepped forward to pay their respects to Mis Hay, as she ent< red the auditorium from nn ante ro..m, and then all was ready for the departure from the hall. The Journey to the Cemetery. The members of the cabinet, present and put, ranged themselves In advance of the Mer. and the six non-commissioned officers of Troop A. took their places at the side of the casket. When the honorary pallbear ers moved forward, the casket was raised by the cavalrymen, and followed by the members of the Hay family, the President and members of the reception committee, It w , borne along the hallway and out to the funeral car at the door The sabers of the cay.ilrymen flashed In t.r- sun In a salute as the casket appeared In the doorway and every hat in the gre it and waiting crowd was removed. The mem b<"S of the cabinet formed in two lines out side of the door and the casket was borne between them and placed In the hearse The carriages of the pallbearers then formed a line In advance of the hearse, and those of the family, of President Roosevelt and of the committee followed on. A few ? harp words of command, scurrying and !rimpilng of hoofs and the cavalry wheeled Into column and passed to the front of the cortege There was no delay and the cav alry, moving at a quick trot, passed straight south to Euclid avenue and then l ie east to the cemetery, five miles away. The drive to the cemetery occupied the ireater part of an hour, and it was al noat 11 o'clock wh?-n the cavalry swtpt jmi'-r the arched gateway and halted ut t -side of Wade Chapel. Forming a line 3ii ore side of the roadway the horsemen ?to< <1 with presented suiters while the (-a-ket was carried Into the little chapel, followed by the family and the President ind the members of the cabinet. The ser .'1 s were strictly private, and. indeed, the etuipel IS so small that It wag difficult for i t he properly accredited persons to And room within Its walls. Siir,ple Services. The services were simple in the extreme. A hymn. Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar," as rendered by a male quartet, a passage of the Scriptures was read by Rev. H. C. Haydn, pastor emeritus of the Old Stone Church, and this was followed by a second hvmn. "For All the Saints Who From Their I-abors Rest." from the quartet, and a brief prayer from Dr. Haydn brought the exercises to a close. The casket was then borne once more to the hearse, the members of the funeral party re-entered their carriages and the cortex* passed up the hill toward the final resting place of the dead Secretary. The slope of the ground from the chapel to the summit of the knoll on which Mr. Hay is buried is steep, and the horses sprang to their work with vigor while the gravel flew from the surface of the roadway as their hoofs scraped during the short climb. From the edge of the lot in which Mr. Hay is buried is perhaps one hundred feet, and alung the walk for this distance tlie cavair> men bore the casket, between the lines formed by the members of the cabinet and the reception committee. At the Grave. The immediate members of the family gathered at the far side of the grave oppo site the line of distinguished mourners. President Roosevelt stood at the end of the line, close to the open grave. For half of it3 depth the sides of the grave had been lined with brick laid In cement, and the casket was slowly lowered while the trem-bling voice of the aged pastor pro nounced the words, "Earth to earth, dust to dust, ashes to ashes,' and then when the casket was laid where it _ will rest for all time, he raised his voice in prayer for the soul that had departed and of comfort for the bereaved who remain. The pro nouncing of the benediction brought the services to a close. President Roosevelt stepped forward to speak a few words to Mrs. Hay, and then walked quietly to his carriage, which bore him directly to the Pennsylvania depot The grave and the balance of the Hay family lot were fairly covered with flow ers. A few of the tributes were as follows: The Floral Tributes. President and Mrs. Roosevelt, a wreath or orchids, maidenhair ferns and cycas leaves. King Edward VII, a wreath of orchids.

There may be others that equal It, but It Is difllcult to believe that any can surpass it, and the interment of Secretary Hay was in the most beautiful part of the cemetery. The body of the dis tinguished Secretary Ues about five hun dred feet due east from the Garfield mon ument. and all around are the monuments of men who were prominent in the life and affairs of Ohio and the nation. Flags at Half Mast. NEWPORT. R. I., July 5.?Vs a mark of respect to the memory of Secretary Hay flags today were placed at half mast in Newport and on the forts and war vessels in the harbor.

PETITION" FILED TODAY PETITIONING CREDITORS REPRE SENT CLAIMS FOR $5,000. Runs on Other Banks Apparently Over ?Receiver of First National Begun Work. TOPEKA, Kan.. July 5.-A petition to de clare C. J. Devlin a bankrupt was filed In the United States district court today In behalf of Kansas City creditors. The petition was filed upon behalf of Thomas Lightfoot, John A. Long and the Long Bros.' Grocery Company of Kansas City, Mo. The claims of the petitioning creditors aggregate J5.U00. The effect of the action In bankruptcy will be to set aside the transfers of prop erty which have?been made by Mr. Devlin recently, except the transfers of life Insur ance, which were made payable to Mrs. Devlin. The transfer of real estate to the First National Bank, which was made by Mr. Devlin on Monday following the clos ing of the bank, will be set aside, as will also the attachment of Devlin property made later at Kansas City by the National Bank of Commerce. As the real estate which Mr. Devlin transferred to the First National Bank here on Monday was valued at about J700,000, the action begun today on the part of the creditors will reduce the assets of the bank to Just that extent. The petitioners represent that when Mr. Devlin assigned his property to the First National Bank of Topeka on July 3 he was then Insolvent, and that such transfer was made with intent to make the failed bank a preferred creditor. The petition will pre vent the running of further attachments on the Devlin property. It Is made returnable on July 20. In the meantime Mr. Devlin may tile a confession of bankruptcy or file an answer denying the acts of bankruptcy and ask for a trial by 1ury. The trustee in bankruptcy, who wilt be selected by the creditors, would have the power to take charge of the estate and after converting the assets into cash, ap portion the proceeds equally among the creditors. When the First National Bank of Topeka, controlled by Devlin, failed on July 3, it was known that the Devlin estate owed both the Spring Valley National Bank of Spring Valley, 111., and the First National Bank of Toluca, 111., which closed their doors today, and the suspension of the latter institutions was expected to follow as a natural result. Runs on Bank Stopped. Just what amounts the Devlin estate owes to the two Illinois banks is not known, but It Is stated that they became Involved In loaning money to build the Toluca, Mar quette and Northern railroad, a small coal carrying road, which Mr. Devlin was con structing to his mining property In that state. This road connects with the Atchi son, Topeka and Santa Fe. the Illinois Cen tral, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul, the Chicago and Alton and the Indiana, Illinois and Iowa railroads. Negotiations are already In progress, it is said, to sell this railroad property, which Is considered a valuable asset. PEORIA. 111.. July 5.?D. A. Cook, nation al bank examiner, who was appointed re ceiver of the Spring Valley National Bank of Spring Valley, 111., refused to make a statement today as to the condition of the bank's finances or the amount owed the bank by the Devlin estate. There was no run on the Institution when Its doors were closed. Runs on Topeka banks, which started on Monday, following the failure of the First National Bank, had apparently been stop ped when the Institutions opened for busi ness today. A small crowd gathered about the First National Bank, but there was no excitement. All banks from which de positors had withdrawn money on Mon day had further fortified themselves over the holiday of yesterday, and at each bank the officials stated that they were better than ever able to meet all demands. Receiver Bradly of the First National Bank began work today on the books of that concern, but no s-tatement was avail able for publication regarding Its condi tion and none was expected for some time yet. C. S. Gleed and Clifford Hlsted, mem ber! of the creditors' committee, named at Kansas City, were in the city and held con ference* with the bank officiate la an en deavor to arrive at the true state of affairs I of the failed bank. Creditors' Meeting. KANSAS CITY. July 5.?The creditors' committee of the C. J. Devlin estate, which, it had been announced, would meet here today to take action for protection of Dev lin's creditors, did not meet as was ex pected. because Charles S. Gleed and Clif ford Histed. two of its members, were in Topeka. They are expected here tonight. C. S. Jobes, chairman of the committee, said that he did not believe any action would be taken before tomorrow, however, as the committee, he said, was awaiting a staterr.ent of the affairs of the Devlin prop erties. and this was not expected for a day or two yet. Result of Devlin's Failures. The controller of the currency has ap pointed National Bank Examiner D. A. Cook, receiver of the Spring Valley Na tional Bank of Spring Valley, 111., upon ad vice received from Examiner Cook that the bank had closed. The controller has also appointed Na tional Bank Examiner J. MacSholl receiver of the First National Bank of Toluca, 111., upon advice from the vice president of die bank that It would not open for business this morning, and a request to-have an ex aminer take charge. The suspension of these banks Is due to the failure of C. J. Devlin, who was president of both of them. The capital of the Spring Valley Na tional Bank Is $50,000. and of the First Na tional of Toluca $100,000. HAY'S SUCCESSOR. Root Unlikely to Give Up His Rich Business Income. Special Dispatch to The Star. CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 5?Discussion as to the successor of Secretary Hay now centers about Elihu Root. A special from on board the train bearing the President to Cleveland reaching here today says: "The President before he retired Tuesday night had a confidential talk with Root, who Joined the party at Jersey City. Dur ing this consultation. It is understood, the President asked Root to consider the Idea of returning to the cabinet in the fall. Al though it is understood that Root gave the President no definite answer, there being no out-and-out offer, it is believed that he told the President that his business con nection made since his retirement from the cabinet would prevent his re-entering pub lic life. "To give up a business paying $300,000 a year to take a cabinet Job at $8,000 Is the meaning of the President's offer to Root, and it is scarcely probable that the lawyer will accept unless the chief executive makes it plain that such a crisis is Immi nent that no hand but Root's can steer the ship of state." COMMANDER BOWYER. To Be Relieved at the Navy Yard by Commander Beatty. Commander J. M. Bowyer, who has been head of the department of yards and docks at the Washington navy yard for nearly four years, will be relieved of that duty on the 15th Instant and assigned to the com mand of a fine warship, probably the new monitor Florida. He is one of the most popular and efficient officers ever stationed at the local yard. During his term he supervised the construction of the new boiler house, new electric power plant and new coal storage and handling plant and the new quay wall which is being built along the water front of the navy yard. Also the laying off of the new extension of the yard, on the west side, containing about twenty acres. Commander F. E. Beatty, who preceded Commander Bowyer as chief of the depart ment of yards and docks, will succeed him In that duty and will be generally welcomed by the officers and men at the yard. GRIMES' BATTERY. Famous Virginia Military Organization Not to Disband. Special Dispatch to The Star. PORTSMOUTH, Va., July 5.?The famous Grimes battery, organized nearly a century ago. will not pass out of existence. Capt. Cutheriell this afternoon received a letter from Gov. Montague, in which the governor, while upholding the disbandment order of Inspector General Stearns, gives the bat tery the privilege of reorganising as Steel artillery, which will be done. The Grimes bRttery was organized In 1810. It has seen service in every war since the war of 1810. In the civil war Its record added luster to the glory of the Portsmouth soldier. Capt.' Cutheriell will take steps to reorganize the company at once, and be will in all probability be re-elected captain. VESPER DOWN AND OUT Philadelphia Eight Defeated by Leander. BOTH FINISH STRONG CRACK ENGLISH CREW ROW A EAST RACE. Second Day of the Henley Regatta? Belgians Win Their Heat From London Rowing Club. HENLEY, England, July 5.?The Lean ders defeated the Vespers of Philadelphia here today In the first heat of the semi finals for the Grand Challenge cup. The Englishmen won by a length. Time, 7 minutes .01 second. In the second heat of the semi-finals the Belgians beat the London Rowing Club by three lengths. Time, 7 minutes 20 seconds. The weather clerk provided splendid weather for the keenly anticipated strug gle between the Vespers and the Leanders today. This was the first race of the day and the widespread interest taken In it was evidenced by the great crowds which thronged all the vantage points along the course and congregated in the vicinity of tha winning post long before the hour for the start. The Phlladelphlans arrived at the boat house at 10:30 all fit and full of go. They launched their boat and set oft on a paddle at 11:45 amid encouraging shouts from a big gathering of their compatriots and the friendly cheers of the British. Leander Had Slight Advantage. The slight breeze toward the Bucks shore gave the Leanders, who had the Berkshire side, a little advantage in position. The Americans shortly before the time set for th j race rowed up to the starting line, but the Leanders' shell was brought up by the outsiders, the British crew driving up to the starting point in carriages and em barking thence. As the boats came up to the line preparatory to the start the Brit ish oarsmen seemed the more composed of the two crews. The boats got away together, but the nervousness of the Phlladelphlans was shown in the splashing which marked their first half-dozen strokes. The Leanders started with a stroke of 41 to the minutes and the Vespers with Hit. The nose of the British craft forged slightly to the front, but there was not much to choose between them when they passed Temple Island in the record time of 47 seconds. Work Too Hard for Vesper. The Phlladelphlans, however, soon began to give signs that the hard work was tell ing on them. The Leanders dropped their stroke to 37, but the Vespers could not di minish the lead of half a length, which the home crew had already obtained. This was increased to a full length. When three-quarters of a mile had been covered the Leanders again flowed down their stroke to 34, but they always maintained a lead. In the last quarter the Vespers made a desperate spurt and the stroke oar quick ened his stroke rapidly. The Americans re sponded and their boat gradually forged up until only three-quarters of a length separated the two prows. The effort, how ever. was futile. The Leanders had plenty In hand. They responded to the, spurt of their opponents and passed them, winning by a length. Both crews finished strong. Vespers Have Ho Excuse to Give. Coxswain Abell of the Vespers Bald to a representative of the Associated Press after the race: "We lost to a superior crew. We both did all we could. The race was no runaway, and it must be remembered that we were defeated by the pick of all England. Still I believe that If the Leanders had raced us in Philadelphia we would have had a length to our good Instead of to their good." Abell added that he had rowed his last race and was going to retire from the row ing field. Harry Willis, the Leander'a coach, admit ted that his heart was in his mouth during most of the race. "The Vespers," Willis said, "beat all my anticipations before the race. I expected them to play out half way, but they pushed the Leattders to the finish. They are as fine a crew as ever crossed the Atlantic. I have always contended that the English leg drive combined with their swing Is better than the long slide. But I must admit that this race does not prove that our methods are superior ta tbos* of the Americans. The Leanders are all old rowers. I believe they are away above the average, and I have lit tle doubt that they will beat the Belgians In the tinal tomorrow." The Vespers will sail for New York July 8 on the American Line steamer Philadelphia. SUPPOSED LYNCHING. Negro Prisoner Taken From Kentucky Prison by Mob. RUSSELLV1LLB. Ky.. July B.-James Lyon, who was charged with assaulting Miss Mary Gladder, was taken from the jail by a mob of 100 men shortly before midnight, and it is supposed that he was lynehi d.

He met the sheriff and his deputies outside the Jail yard, and they ordered him to stop. He rushed on, and they shot at him four times, wounding him twice. Neither wound is thought to be fatal. The shooting near the square frightened the mob In the Jail, and they hurried o(T with only one of the men. Jim Lyon, leav ing two others in Jail.

GOV. CARTER ARRIVED. Hawaiian Executive on His Way to Washington. SAN FRANCISCO, July 5.?George Car ter, governor of the territory of Hawaii, was a passenger on the liner Alameda, which has arrived from Honolulu. Gov. Carter, who recently tendered his resigna tion, is on his way to Washington for the purpose of consulting President Roosevelt. With his formal resignation he forwarded a request for permission to visit Washing ton and lay before the chief executive cer tain matters connected with the govern ment of Hawaii. | Carter's resignation followed closely the announcement of the result of the terri torial elections.

I have views of my own in regard to Ha waiian matters, and I feel that In some things my views differed from those of President Roosevelt. I am going to Wash ington to have a long talk with the Presi dent, and my real reason for placing my resignation in his hands was to avoid any embarrassment in the event of his deciding to place somebody else at the helm in Hawaii."

It is a town of Russia at the west sngUi of <-i magnificent bay In the southeast of the Crimea. It Is walled and well fortified, and contains a number of noted church edifices, mosques and educational institu tions. It Is a place of great antiquity, hav ing been formed by a colony of Greeka from Ionia. Today It is a place that en joys some trade, but It Is most noted as a place of seaside resort, with a population of something over S.000. ST. PETERSR1 'RG, July .V-The battle ship Knlaz Potemkine has arrived at Theo dosia, a port on the eastern shore of the Crimean peninsula, without the torpedo boat which she towed out of the harbor of Kus tenji. It Is believed the battleship took the crew of the torpedo boat on board and abandoned or sank her while on the way to Theodosla. The destroyer Smetllvla, which went In pursuit of the Kniaz Potemkine. evidently failed to overtake her, as she has not been reported. All Idea of trying to sink the Knlaz Po temkine has now been abandoned by the admiralty, as n report from the authoritteg of Theodosla shows there are dissensions among ihe mutineers, a portion of the crew favoring surrendering. Fighting is be lieved to have occurred on board the bat tleship during the voyage. This is sup ported by the demand for a doctor. The ship is short of provisions and coal, and the admiralty believes her career will soon be ended. Tht- ringleaders of the mutiny, however, realizing that they have put their heads in the noose, and that they have nothing to lose, have demanded coal and provisions at Theodosla, under the penalty of bombarding the town. They are trying to make for Poti Trans caucasia, where they may get the support of the revolutionists, Batoum, which Is for tified. being too dangerous a haven. In the absence of supporting war shlpM it Is doubtful whether the authorities of Theodosla are able to resist the demands of the mutineers. The American steamer Garonne, with refugees from Port Arthur on board Is at Theodosia. All the foreign shipping in the Black sea has been warned against the Knlaz Potem kine, which, In view of the desperate sit uatlon of her crew, will probably not hesi tate to hoist the skull and cross bones.

Russian Papers Now Teem With Ac counts of Odessa Tragedy. ST. PETERSBURG, July 5.?With the publication !n the Official M> ,-enger of the official account of the tragedy at Odessa the hand of the censorship Is raised and all the papers are filled with columns upon col umns of accounts from the foreign papers. Leaving aside the machinations of the rev olutionists the pre.--, with one voice, de clares that the mutinies on board ships of the Black sea fleet were the result of the rotten system In vogue in tin Russian navy, the bluejackets being utterly neglected and tho olflcers living ashore except during the brief cruises. Capt. Clado In a long review affirms that the question of food was a mere pretext, the real cause being deeper, in the com plete lack of sympathy between the men and tl^eir officers, most of whom, he says, are disgustingly Incompetent. Owing their positions to influence at St. Petersburg they care nothing for good service or the well being and contentment of the men. Other writers, some of whom evidently are high in the service, but who write under assumed names, in a most savage fashion declare that the bureaucratic regime In the navy is only reaping what it has sown and plainly intimate that similar conditions ex ist In the army. "Fear," says the Slovo, "is the sole basla of discipline in the army and navy, an<t it will prove as poor an Instrument for keeping the rank and file loyal to the thron* as it has in the suppression of discontent among the people. The government should learn the lesson tliat the soldiers and sail ors are beginning to awaken as the peo ple have already awakened. ' Tennis Championship.
