TWO WITNESSES TESTIFY Artist Rosenthal Tells of the Delay in Payment. RECEIPT FOR $790 DISCUSSED Letter Written by Him Which He Had Forgotten?Fischer Art Company Agent Heard. As a result of a hearing this morning before the House committee on expend itures Jn tlie State Department the fog em eloping the Day portrait mystery is thicker than ever. Albert Rosenthal of I'hiladelphia, the artist who painted the now famous portrait of former Secre tary of State Day. and Ira D Moore, representing the Fischer Art Company of this city, were the only witnesses heard. ~ The principal fact developed today was that although Disbursing Officer Morrison drew $2,4.">0 from the Treas ury, ostensibly to pay for the Day por trait. January 10. 1IK?4, and turned the?' entire sum over to Chief Clerk Michael 1 two days later. Artist Rosenthal did not receive the |790 duo him until March 22, 1!*>4, and the Fischer Art Company wasn't paid the $t?0 due for the frame until some time in June of the same year. The committee wants to know the rea son for this delay, and considers this on.ly one of the many peculiar things in connection with the transaction. Rosenthal Receipt Again. Representative Hamlin of Missouri, chairman of the committee, hud a talk with Artist Rosenthal over the lond-dis tance telephone the other day. in the i course of which Mr. Rosenthal denied i that he had ever signed a receipt for | $7ft>, which was presented to the com- I mittee recently by the State Department j officials. This receipt attracted the com mittee's attention because it was not dated, although it read: "Received on January IK. lft?4." etc. Today Mr. Rosen thal identified the receipt as having been signed by him. although declaring in the ; same breath that he didn't think he could have written it until after he ac tually received payment for the Day ' portrait, and this payment, he ascertained ! from his bank In Philadelphia, was not j made until more than two months later than the date mentioned in the receipt. The committee was also considerably interested today in Mr. Rosenthal's dec laration that when he delivered the Day portrait he was told he would have to wait a while for hjs money, as no appro priation was then available. If that was the case the committee would like to know why it was that Col. Michael, ch.ef clerk of the State Department in HKM, re ceived the cash to pay for the Dav por trait January 18. lft>4. but did not pay Rosenthal until March 22. Letter He Had Forgotten. Chairman Hamlin asked Mr. Rosenthal if he ha<l been called on for any explana tion of his part in the voucher mystery in 11MM5 when the pec uliar transaction was brought to the attention of Secretary of State Root, who ordered an investigation. Mr. Rosenthal replied in the negative. "Didn't you sign any papers hearing on the case in 1!M$?" Mr. Hamlin inquired. "I don't recall arty paper I could *ave signed then," Mr. Rosenthal replied! Then the chairman latd before Mr. ! Rosenthal a letter, to which his name was affixed, but which bore no date, and as not addressed to any one, which pur ported to be an explanation of how Mr. Rosenthal, after ascertaining that the voucher tor payment of the Day portrait, which he had signed in blank, had beeri tilled in by somebody for three times tue amount he had received for the portrait, had brought the matter to the attention ! of Justice Day. "Didn't you write that?" Mr. Hamlin inquired. "Ves, I did." replied Mr. Rosenthal, "and I had completely forgotten every thing about it " Intended for Mr. Denby. Then Mr. Hamlin called the artist's at tention to the fact that the letter was ! not addressed to any one. "Oh," said Mr. Rosenthal, "I think 1 must have written it at the State Depart- ! ment and that it was intended for Mr. ! Denby." Mr. Denb\ was chief < lerk of ! the State Department iu that year, hav- ' >ng succeeded Col. Michael, and con- . ducted an investigation of the portrait * mystery under the direction of Secretary ' Root. Chairman Hamlin called Mr. Rosen- j tlial's attention to the fact that the date, I Washington. February on the ! letter apparently was not In the same | handwriting as the letter itself. "Did you write that date?" Mr. Ham lin asked. "I did not." the artist replied. Today's hearing was probably the Last one the committee will give on the Day ! portrait case. Chairman Hamlin and his colleagues will now hold executive ses sions. go over all the testimony taken ! and endeavor to dissect and analyze It. 1 And they confess, in view of the many ! contradictions in the testimony of almost 1 every witnesH heard during "the month j that the Inquiry has been in progress, that they have the hardest kind of a job ahead. HAIL DESTROYS TOBACCO. Storms in Connecticut Uproot Orchards and Break Windows. NEW MII-FOItD. Conn., June 21.?This section of Connecticut faced a scene of desolation today th. result of a rec- | ord hailstorm which swept across the state last night. Tne heaviest damage ' was t<? the tobacco farms, where many j thousand young plants were cut to I pieces. At Baylordwllle every tree in an apple ! orchard owned by Alfred Hungerford ! was uprooted bv the wind. At Long ! Mountain the hail broke windows In ! every house In the village, an average i of twenty pines each being smashed in ! Sixty-five panes, the highest number! ' was the loss at the home of Edwin Hi 1 ! In Milford the hailstones reached a record size and many of theni were strangely colored. Fifteen of the largest ones were picked up by one of the town constables and put on the scales of the nearest Jeweler's. They weighed more than an ounce apiece, and one of them of irregular shape and beautiful coloring' was a full two ounces, or .'mo carats Victim of Fourth of July Celebration NEWARK. N.

Thousands of Children Happy as Doors Are Closed. 1 ALL WEAR BROAD SMILES , Clean Clothes and Clean Faces Also Apparent at Every School. RECITATIONS AND SONGS Pupils in the Grades Hold Closing Exercises in Which All Take Prominent Part. When the sun came up on this, the long est day of the year. It could have peeped into thousands of bedroom windows, where thousands of school children were sleeping with smiles upon their faces, and being r rather wise old sun. with heaps of experience, it could have said to itself; "I'll bet my halo thai this Is the last dny of school." Imagine the sun making a bet and los ing It. More nearly infallible than even the weather bureau, the June sun has come up on so many last days of school that it knows just what kind of a sweet little smile plays on the faces of little children in the early morning, just at j the time when the dim subconsciousness' awakes to whisper in the active little' minds: "Hurry! your clean clothes are all laid: out by your bed. This is the last day of school." This festival of clean clothes and clean ; faces and wet hair on little boys was j going on wherever there is a schoolhouse in the District of Columbia today. Somehow or other school children and the sight of them clean and fresh and pretty and starched never grows stale. They are the performers who don't have to change their acts. They did the same thing last year and the year before and the year before, and so on away back into the little red schoolhouse days when every boy tried to imitate Dan 1" ebster and every girl had heard of Florence Nightin gale and Grace Darling. They did it this morning-, too, making their en trances under the June sky with the same pretty freshness that always i comes to a sunny last day of schooi. Last-Day-of-School Smile. Of course, the mills were working and the office forces were busy at their ledgers, but the business of the day was to be found in the fifty thousand little children who brightened it with their smiles?and that last-day-of school smile is certainly a great smile. It was a smile that would make peo ple stop and say: "W hy, look at those children! Oh, I know, of course, this is the last day of school!" Being a girl, especially a very little girl, on the last day of school is to rival the prettiest things that the old sun who bet his halo ever saw. There are several thousand of them in this town, and all of them had on skirts today which stuck right out straight. Little skirts they are. which bob about in remarkable fashion^ and from which protrude little legs of varying cliubhiness. and the chubblness ends down n-ar the ground somewhere, in a cute little combination of socks and slippers. The high school graduate has her in nings in her "simple" graduation gown, and the clever normal school girl gains plaudits through her wonderful cla^s days and amateur plays?but is she in it with the little graduate of the kinder garten or the first grade with her chubby legs ending in pink socks'/ Boys Do Honors, Also. The boys who did honor to thh; last day of school did it by bucketfuls of water slicked on the errant hair, which or dinarily goes unslicked. It would have been a task to count up the slicked hair on the young fellows from the graded schools today. And oh, what stiff col lars and such bright neckties and shined ip shoes, which rellected the sun's June rays! They were not quite so dainty and simpering as the little girls, for most of the boys played ball oa the s hool lot between and y o'clock this morning, a.s usual, but they were fairly well sliined up, all right. They were a trifle politer than usual, because they felt the galling influence of a stiff col lar. Certain schools are not Included In tne "last day." All the "practice'' schools were closed for good yesterdaj These are the schools in connection with the normal schools, which were closed yes terday. There are but a few of them. And why? Hist! There is a good rea son. The normal school girls at the l'ranklin couldn't teach any schools to day; they were all engaged in making an enormous daisy chain which they will carry upon the stage as they begin their graduation exercises this afternoon. Exercises in Eighth Orade. Graduation exercises for every eighth grade were held In the various divisions of the schools today. The grades com bined, so that all the eighth grades in each division held their exercises jointly at a central building. All of the high school buildings were utilized for the pur pose. The pupils who have passed through the eighth grades of the school were given certificates to that effect. These certificates have been in use in tin: schools for a year and a half, and a< - cording to Supt. Stuart have resulted in keeping many children In school until the last day. The classes of the second division held tiieir exercises at the H. D. Cooke School, the principal address being made by Rep resentative Julius Kahn of California C'apt. James F. Oyster, president of the hoard of education, presided. Rev. Earle Wilfley also spoke. Diplomas were pre sented by B. W. Murch, supervising prin cipal of the division.

Accompanied by his personal counsel, ex-Judge Elbridge H. Hanecy of Chicago, 8enator William Lorimei; arrived In Washington today to remain throughout the Senate inquiry Into his election. Judge Hanecy will remain constantly with him, and It is expected they will have the as sistance of William J. Hynes, who has been engaged as counsel in the especial interest of Edward Hines, the lumber man whose name has been connected with the collection and disbursement of the alleged 1100,000 corruption fund. The hearings will be resumed at 8 o'clock tomorrow, and If he arrives in time ex-Gov. Richard Yates will be the first witness of the day. He has tele graphed that he cannot be here until the afternoon, and If It becomes evident that there will be delay on his account some other witness will be called. After the dismissal of Mr. Yates the committee will make an effort to hear witnesses in such order as will bring out the facts in proper sequence- Yates and McComtlck were called out of turn because of their desire to be absent from the country tem porarily. If a desirable room can be obtained the committee will change its meeting place, i While suited In other respects, the room | occupied yesterday in the Senate office i building was found to be too noisy on | account of passing street cars. The com- < mittee has reached no decision aj to when 1 Illinois may be visited, and probably will not determine that point until much ! further along in the taking of testimony.

ANCHOR IN INNER HARBOR Dispatch Boats Meet Uncle Sam's Ships and Show Every Courtesy. ADMIRAL BADGER COMMANDS, Flagship Louisiana, the Kansas, the New Hampshire and South Carolina Represent U. S. KIEL, Germany, June 21?The Amer- I lean warships, second division of the Atlantic fleet, arrived -here early this morning and are now moored in the In ner harbor before the town, surrounded by the array of warships and yachts gathered for the emperor's great an nual naval festival. Emperor William arrived here this aft ernoon from Hamburg aboard the Hohen z<">llern, and was saluted with thirty three guns by every warship in the har bor. The American crews, like the Ger mans, manned the sides of the vessels at the approach of the imperial jaeht and fioisted the German ensign. The Ilohenzollern, with the emperor on the nridge, the imperial standard flying from the mainmast and the Stars and Stripes from the mizzenmast, steamed past the German ami American lines, while the crews of each ves-sel in lurn cheered. At the end of the American line the Hohenzollern came about and passed be tween tho> South Carolina and the Lou isiana to permit his majesty a closer inspection of these battleships. Americans Presented to Emperor. Soon afterward Ambassador Hill and Admiral Haduer, with the other Ameri can commanders, visited the imperial yacht, whore they were presented to the emperor. His majesty was in the best of spirits, and at the end of a long conversation invited the Admiral and Mr. Hill to dine witli him tonight. The Americans were presented also to the I empress and Princess Victoria Louise. Practically the entire German navy, including a full division of the new ; dreadnoughts, are assembled, the only ! absentees being the cruiser Von der | Taon, which is at Spitliead for the j coronation, and the obsolete reserve : division at Wilhelmshaven. Admiral von Tlrpitz, admiral of the fleet, min ister and creator of the new German ; navy, heads an imposing list of ad ' miral commanders. The Americans were met at sea by a ! dispatch boat, carrying Lieut. Com mander F. A. Trent, American naval attache at Berlin, l'aui H. J. Sartori, American consular agent at Kiel, and German officers who had been assigned to pilot the visitors to their anchorage. Passed as Salute Was Fired. The arrival of the battleships was timed so that they would pass the outer fortilications of Friedriohsort at 8 o'clock in the morning, when the na tional salute is iired by the fortress and answered i'roni shore. As the American battleships, led by the Louisiana, flagship o? Rear Admiral Badger, slowiy steamed tnrougn tne narrowing fiord and passed long lines of German ships they turned to their assigned places between tno flagships Deuischland and Kaiser VVilhelm ii and the other vessels <if the German fleet. The German ships, in liglit gray paint, presented a cheerful appearance under the brilliant sunshine, and contrasted markedly with the dark sides of the Americans. American Salute Answered. As soon as the visitors were moored the Louisiana saluted Admiral von Tir vltz's flagship and the salute was promptly answered. From then on the guns were kept hot with an almost un interrupted exchange of salutes for sev eral hours as the admirals, commanders, diplomats and consular representatives came and went between the entertain ing and visiting craft, exchanging official calls of courtesy. Dr. David Javne Hill, the retiring American ambassador to Germany, ar rived during the forenoon and boarded the Kansas, where he will be quartered during his stay here. Later in the lay the United States col lier Cylops arrived and attracted almost more attention from the crowds on the quays than the battleships. In addition to the Louisiana and Kan sas the American battleships of the vis iting division are the New- Hampshire and South Carolina. GEN, EVANS CRITICALLY ILL.
