Attention has b#en called to the fact that the grave of the niece of George Washington is wholly neglected, being n a private burying ground on a Vir ginia farm. R. W. Farrar in a letter to The Star explained that while visiting at the farm of Maurice Castleman on the Shenandoah river, about five miles from Bluemont, he found the old grave, now nearly obliterated. Mr. Farrar says, in part: "It is where there is a crossing on the Shenandoah river now crossed by a bridge, but where there was formerly a ferry and is known as Castlemans Ferry, and is at the west side of old Snickers gap. In a pasture on that farm is a private burying yard, and among the graves Is one covered with a broken marble slab on which is inscribed: "Here lies the mortal remains of Betty Carter, daughter of Betty Lewis, only sister of Gen. George Washington." Graves Are Not Protected. "The graves are in a pasture not pro tected by any fence, and many large trees are growing among the graves, and the cattle and horses congregate beneath those trees and have trampled the graves so that they are hardly dis cernible. The thought struck me that It was odd that the grave of the only daughter of the only sister of George Washington should not at least be in some wise protected, and at the same time I was somewhat surprised to know that George Washington had a sister. I returned to Washington and asked newspaper men, senators and others, and to each inquiry I received a reply that they did not know that Washington had a sister. "In all of my readings of Washing i ton's early life I do not ever recall of | reading that he had a sister or that she took any part in the social life of the Washington family. Hence I became somewhat interested and went to the Congressional Library and secured the genealogy of the Washington family. It showed that George Washington did have a sister some fourteen months younger than himself, and that that sis ter was married at about the age of twenty-five years." ALLEGE ILL TREATMENT. Thirty-Five Catholic Priests Subject ed to Indignities in Mexico. LAREDO, Tex..

Arranging Preliminaries for the Election of Successor to Pope Pius X. CEREMONY OF BREAKING THE FISHERMAN'S RING American Cardinals to Participate in the Conclave in September. Pope's Last Honrs. ROME. August 21 (Delayed in trans mission).?Twenty-three cardinals met late today In the first congregation of cardinals to arrange the temporary gov ernment of the church and prepare for the conclave In September when a suc cessor to Pope Pius X will be elected. Cardinals Martinelli and Dl Pietro are ill. and for that reason were unable to be present Cardinal Seraphln Vannutel li. dean of the Sacred College, attended, but. being incapacitated by an indisposi tion, the duties of the dean were per formed by Cardinal Agllardl. After taking the oath to maintain Becret their discussions "even to the shedding of blood," the cardinals performed the traditional ceremony of breaking the fisherman's ring. The rite, however, was not literally carried out. According to the rules of the Sacred College the ring should be brSKcn and later reset and presented to the new Pope. Today after each of the members present had identi fied the ring It was found that none had the strength to break it. even though a hammer was employed. Aid was not at hand, as Cardinal Delia Volpe had not permitted the presence of any one except the cardinals and tile latter flanlly de cided that the symbolical ceremony would bo properly observed if the symbol of office was scratched. This was done. Bequests Provided in Will. It Is learned that the testament of the late Pope provides for the mainte nance of about 400 little ones made orphans by the earthquake at Messina and Calabria in 1908. The Pope's sister Anna, who collapsed when the pontiff died, was bettor today and Inquired about the arrangements for the funeral Saturday. She insisted upon kneeling in bed to pray for the departed soul. The outer walls of all the churches are placarded with notices from Car dinal Pomptli, vicar general of his holi ness. stating that the chamberlain had given him officially the sad news of the death of Pius X on Thursday and Instructed him to notify all the faith ful and ordered that the bells In all tlie churches be t.olled for one hour at sunset Friday and on Saturday. The clergy also are directed to say masses for the late pontiff "recommending his blessed soul to God." Borne Gets Official Notice. The death of Pope Pius X was for mally announced to the municipality of Rome today. Prince Camillo Rosplgllosi, commander of the Noble Guard, and Marquis Gio vanni SacchettI, head marshal of the Apostolic Palace, went to the capital, accompanied by the official witnesses of the pontiff's demise, two members of the Noble Guard, Count Michele Moroni and Marquis Callo Anticl Mattel. The mayor of Rome, Prince Prosperc Colonna, received the party in the coun cil hall, where the register had already prepared the certificate of death. This was Inscribed with the words: "According to the statement of the phys.clans and witnesses Plus X died at 1:15 o'clock on the morning of Au gust 20, 1914." The representatives of the Vatican ex pressed their thanks to Prince Colonna for the evidences of regard shown them in the conduct of their sad mission. The mayor replied: "The municipality has simply accom plished a painful duty." Solemn Bites of Absolution. Borne by red-uniformed members of the Sedlali. who, when he was alive, carried him in the Sedan Gestatorla chair, the body of Pope Pius X, dressed in pontifical robes and miter and with the other emblems of his sacred office lying beside It, was taken to the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament in St Peter's where the solemn rites of absolution were performed. Thousands of persons previously had visited the throneroom, where the body lay, to look upon the face of ti.f dead pontiff, and many of them wove themselves into the great procession rrom the throne room to the chapel. The procession was headed by the bear ers of the massive silver pontifical cross ajld twenty cardinals and patri archs, archbishops, bishops, priests and papal and court chamberlains and mem bers of the Swiss Noble and Palatine m ua in their multi-colored uniforms, the scene was an Impressive one. Un der the flare of the candles in the chap el could be seen the tear-dimmed eyes or prelate, priest, layman and papal guard. Especially affected were the bearers of the body of the Pope. The burial of Pope Plus will be ab solutely private. This was decided on today The body was embalmed prior to Its removal to the chapel for the ceremony of absolution. Pope's Last Hours. The Corrlere D'ltalta publishes an Interview concerning the pope's last hours. In which the pontiff's physician fe-VL d?wn some of his conversation his patient, and dwells upon the effect of the war pews from northern ^roPe uP?n Pope's condition.

August 22.?A secret message that caused Cardinal Gibbons to decide to start for Rome Immediate ly was dtllttrM to him at Sprint; Lake, *N. J.< Thursday afternoon. It came from the apostolic delegate. Mgr. John Bonzano, In Washington. The papal representative le it be known that he feared to trust the mes sage by telegraph, and called Rev. Louis R. Stickney, chancellor of the Baltimore archdiocese, on the telephone, gave the message in Latin and told the chancellor to deliver It to the cardinal by word of mouth. A _ Father Stickney immediately set out for Spring Lke, and on receiving the mes sage the cardinal at once made arrange ments to sail. In some quarters It is believed the message referred to the coming conclave and gave assurance that no voting would take place until the Americans arrived at the Vatican. This seems credible in view of the fact that Cardinal Gibbons stated in New York yesterday before sail ing that he would arrive in Rome in time to vote. It also Is regarded as significant tnai Cardinal Begin of Quebec will not sail for Rome until next Monday. The Cana dian telegraphed to the Baltimore prel ate's home Thursday night asking at what time Cardinal Gibbons Would sail.

When Informed of the premature announcement in the United States of tho pontiff's death and the claim made that it actually occurred prior to the time as officially announced. Dr. Mar chiafava said he thought it ridiculous to doubt the exact hour at which the pope had passed away, and decried the attempt to shorten his life by hours, in view of the fact that there are plenty of witnesses who saw him alive early Thursday morning. Disinterested Witnesses. These Include such outside and dis interested persons as Mgr. Falconlo, former apostolic delegate In the United StateB who, at about midnight of Wed nesday, Insisted upon entering the Vati can, the doors Of which were closed. He was given admittance and remain ed in the Pope's bedroom for half an hour. Dr. Andrea Amicl, the other physician In attendance, when told of the American report said: "I can give you the best of docu ments showing the Irrefutable truth." With these words he produced his own written announcement of the death of the pontiff to the mayor of Rome. This announcement is as fol lows : "Most Illustrous sir and mayor: "It Is my sorrow to inform you to day. 'August 20, at the hour of 1:15 a.m., his holiness. Pope Plus X, known secularly as Giuseppe Sarto o" Rlese, ceased to live in the Vatican palace, from bronchial pneumonia, aged seven ty-nine years. Dated August 20, 1914." Death Certificate.

MAY REMAIN HERE UNTIL NEXT MARCH Leaders in Congress Believe Session Will Be Pro longed by War. ARE PLANNING TO ENACT NUMEROUS MEASURES Best Periods Probable Only at Elec tion Time and During Christ mat Holidays. The legislative situation In Wash ington today Indicates possibilities which were undreamed of three weeks ago, when the strife In Europe was just beginning:. Leaders in Congress are frankly stating that they believe Congress will remain In session with out adjournment until next March, tak ing recesses, perhaps, at election time and at Christmas. This being the case, a number of Important bills now pend ing, which it was thought would have to go over until next winter, or even the following regular session in De cember, 1915, stand a chance of being enacted into law before Congress leaves Washington. Bills in Schedule. Among these bills are the adminis tration's so-called conservation bills, Including the general dam bill, the water power bill, jthe general coal, oil and phosphate leasing bill, the radium bill and the Alaska coal lands leasing bill. These measures are already on their way through the House, which has adopted a special order providing for their consideration. After the House has disposed of them, and the'Senate has passed the administration trust bills and the rivers and harbors bill, it is likely the conservation bills will be taken up if Congress remains in session. Another bill which is on the calendar is the immigration bill, designed to limit immigration into the United States. The so-called stock exchange bill, which was laid before the Sen ate by Senator Owen, chairman of the banking and currency committee, but which the Senate promptly sent back to the committee, probably will be urged upon the Senate by some, but the probabilities are it will not be considered in the near future. Bural Credit Legislation. The rural credits bill, which also has been drafted and laid before both houses, may be taken up, and probably will, for the democrats have pledged themselves to such legislation. Of course, Congrress will.give atten tion to emergency measures made nec essary by the European war, before it takes up other matters. INCREASE IN AMOUNT OF FOOD IN STORAGE Pennsylvania Warehouses Contain Millions of Eggs and Millions of Pounds of Butter. HARRISBURG, Pa., August 22.?Large Increases in the amount of food prod ucts held in the cold storage warehouses of Pennsylvania were shown by the re port of James Foust, dairy and food commissioner, made public yesterday. The report is dated July 1 and shows that at that time the warehouses con tained nearly 15,000,000 dozen eggs, more than 5,000,000 pounds of butter, a million and a half pounds of fish, 2,000,000 pounds of poultry, about a million pounds of pork, half a million pounds of beef and a hundred thousand pounds of mutton. Commissioner Foust is of the opinion that since the report of July 1, the fig ures of which have just been compiled, there has been a still further increase. Retail dealers and others have testified at investigations being held throughout the state by local and federal authori ties into the increased cost of foodstuffs that the enormous quantities held in cold storage partly were responsible for the high prices. SWISS GOVERNMENT GRATIFIED Willingness of TT. S. to Allow Loan to Be Floated Causes Satisfaction. GENEVA, Switzerland, August 18, via Paris, August 21, 5:50 p.m. Delayed in transmission.?The news that Secretary of State Bryan had informed the Swiss government that the United States would allow a Swiss loan to be floated in America has caused great satisfac tion in official and financial circles. The placing of a loan in the United States is a question of the future. It depends upon the length of the war, but the American attitude increases Swiss credit in Europe. The Swiss government last week bor rowed $600,000 in home subscriptions for 5 per cent a? 99, payable in 1917. APPROVES TT. S. STAND. London Economist Says Foreign Loans Would Prolong War. LONDON, August 22.?The Economist, referring to the opposition of the Ameri can government to allowing a French loan to be floated in New York, says: "The United States government has done honor to itself and a service to the world by maintaining neutrality in Its strictest sense and refusing to allow its bankers to take profit by prolonging the carnage in Europe." The newspaper points out that if a French loan had been permitted a Ger man loan must also have been permitted, and that the effect would have been to prolong the war. PEACE BACKED BY GUNS.
