trecial Despatch to Tub N*w Yo?k Hbrai.p. j
Baltimore. March 26.?Arrangements
for the masses of requiem and cere
monies connected with the burial of
Cardinal Gibbons were completed this
afternoon. The funeral procession is
expected to be one of the most Impres
sive ever witnessed in the country.
The great procession and the last of
the series of masses begun the day after
his death will be on Thursday. At that
time the Cathedral will be the gather
ing place for a great throng, because of
the affection felt ror the Cardinal
throughout the country The cdifice,
however, will hardly be large enough
to accommodate the visiting clergy, and
for that reason it Is understood the laity
?will And little room.
Mgr. John Bonzano, apostolic dele
gate at Washington, is to be the cele
brant of the solemn high mass of re
quiem on Thursday morning. Just pre
ceding the mass there will take place
the procession of ecclesiastics. Including
Cardinal O'Connell of Boston and arch
bishops. bishops, monsignori, representa
tives of priestly orders and brotherhoods
and knights of the Papal oourt. The pro
cession will start from Calvert Hall
School, across the street from the Ca
thedral, at 9:30 o'clock, the mass hav
ing been set for 10. The musi-cal pro
gramme will be by the choir from St.
Mary's Seminary, this city.
The chants to be sung at the funeral
mass never before have been heard out
side of the Slstine Chapel at Home. It
was made known to-night that the
manuscript of this Gregorian music had
never been taken out of the Vatican
until a short time ago. whtn. it is un
derstood, Mgr. Bonzano asked permit.-,
sion to have a copy sent to Baltimore
for use in the event of the Cardinal s
death. The copy was sent to St. Mary'r
Seminary to be studied by the semi
narians' choir.
It was announced to-day that Mgr.
Bonzano has confirmed the appointment
of Mgr. Corrigan as administrator of
the archdiocese. Mgr. Corrigan had
been named by the eonsultors of the
archdiocese. The confirmation of the
monsignor's appointment is taken as
an Indication that he will admlnlstei
the diocese for from six months to a
year, It being believed that the Pope
will permit at least that time to elapse
before he announces Cardinal Gibbons s
successor. |
Messages of condolence were receded
nt the late Cardinal's residence to-day
from many sources. Ambassador Jus- |
?erand transmitted the official expres
aton of sympathy from the French ,
Government. His message .
"I am instructed by the Government |
?f the French Republic to express to
you the heartfelt condolences on the '
demise of his Eminence. Cardinal Gib- |
bona, whose nobility and patriotism !
will ever remain a model for all honest >
minded citizens." !
And to Mgr. Corrigan, M. Jusserand
Mnt the following message in behalf ?
Of the personnel of the Embasjy : i
"We mourn with you a prelate ad- |
mlrable for his sanctity. a citizen ad- ;
mirable for his patriotism, a model ?
American In whom during the great j
crisis France found a friend."
Another message of sympathy was 1
from the Hebrews of Baltimore. "We
voice the prayer." it said, "that in God's
providence a leader shall be given to
the Catholics of America who shall
maintain the same noble standards of
Catholic dignity, American citizenry
end human service."
The message from the Baltimore Fed
eration of Churches referred to the dead

POLICE SUSPENDED
FOR COWARDICE

Refusing to Aid Dying
Sergeant.
Chicago, March 26.?Five officers
were suspended from the detective force
to-night after witnesses had accused
them of hiding behind telephone poles
and refusing to answer the dying cries
of their comrade. Detective Sergeant
Patrick O'Neill, who was fatally shot
Wednesday night while trying to arrest
"Tommy" O'Connor, an alleged gunman
who is enlarged with slaying at least
three men.
While the search for O'Connor was
being extended to-day to all parts of the
country Charles Fitxmorrls, Chief of
Police, ended his Inquiry into the events
leading up to the denth of O'Xeill. Ac
cording, to witnesses the six officers
from the Detective Bureau surrounded
the house in which O'Connor was sup
posed to be hiding.
Neighbors told of being aroused by
-several shots and of finding five of the
detectives hiding behind the poles.
"Paddy O'Neill has been shot." one
of them was quoted as saying, "and we
are afraid to go into the backyard until
reesiforcements arrive."
Meanwhile, according to witnesses, the
dying officer was heard to cry "Joe"
(hree times. Detective Sergeant Joe
Roruan, O'Neill's partner, heard the
cries and bes?ari to weep, hut no one
went to the assistance of the wounded
man, according to witnesses, until the
arrival of a police wagon full of gray
haired patrolmen who had been held In
reserve at a station.
"You had better not go back there or
you will get shot," witnesses said one of
the five Detective Bureau men told the
older policemen.
"What do you think we came here
for?" was the retort. "We came to get
O'Neill and we are going to get him,"
and the gray noired patrolmen led the
way to the wounded man. who was then
unconscious. He died on the way to the
hospital.
According to the testimony O'Neill
lay for more than fifteen minutes with
out any effort being made to aid him
after he was shot, and there was no at
tempt to pursue the slayer.

NEGROES LASHED
AS WHITES WATCH
Warden Administers Blows on
Four Prisoners in Jail in !
Wilmington.
NO BLOOD IS DRAWN
Punishment .Hade as Humane
as Possible Consistent
With Law.
j Special Despatch to Til* New Yoik Hehalp.
Wilmington, Del., March 26.?War
Jen M. S. Plummer whipped four
negroes at the stake to-day at the
Newcastle County Workhouse while
hundreds of whites looked on. The
warden declared It was the most dis
agreeable part of his Job as head of the
prison, but because It was distasteful
he did not desire any one else to do it.
There was more Interest than usual
in the Whippings, for the reason that
all the negroes had been convicted of
highway robbery and the sentences
were unusually severe.
Warner Lewis, whose sentence was
ten years and twenty lashes, was the
first man whipped. He took his pun
ishment with a smile, and as he was
releused from the post he sinlllnKly
asked Warden Plummer If that was all.
Leonard Barrett, whoso sentence was
ten years and forty lashes; Horace
Anchey, whose sentence was twenty
years and forty lashes, and John Rich
ardson, with twenty years and forty
lashes, followed in succession.
The men all flinched fnom the whip
but made no outcry. Barrett did not
flinch until the eleventh lash was
reached and from that on appeared to
feel the punishment keenly.
Plummer used the regulation cat o' nine
talis and administered the lashes with
out bending his arm. He was mericlful
In the administration of the sentences
and did not draw blood, but the backs
of the men were raised in marks despite
the care of the warden.
The whippings were held in the small
enclosure at the prison which is used
only for whippings and for executions.
The law has been made more severe
on account of the large number of high
way robberies in various parts of the
State, and the Legislature believed that
: adding additional lasheB to the penalty
would serve to stop this crime.
It is seldom that blood Is drawn at
the whippings, as the wardens who have
whipped men usually have tried not to
be cruel and not inflict unnecessary
punishment. A few years ago blood
was drawn but wardens since that time
have been more considerate.
CHICAGO BANK CLEARINGS.
Special Despatch to Tub New York Herald.
Chicago, March 26.?Chicago bank
clearings this week totalled $458,120,
103, against $638,662,459 in the corre
sponding week last year and a drop r>{

$21,000 GONE WITH
NAVAL PAYMASTER
Ensign Lynam Being Trailed
to Buenos Aires.
Special Despatch to Thi N?w *"o*k Hbuaid.
Boston, March 26.?Ensign Joseph J.
' Lynarn. assistant paymaster of the
United) States scout cruiser Chester, now
| lying in the Boston Navy Yard, is being
trailed to Bouth America by officers of
the Navy Intelligence Department and
the Department of Justice. Lynam is
wanted by the naval authorities to ex
plain the disappearance of $21,000 in
navy pay funds.
Department of Justice officials said
late to-day that Lynam had left New
York within a few days for Buenos
Aires. Lynam dropped out of sight
| here on March 14. when navy officials
first began looking for him. Me was
trailed to New York city and thence to
Cleveland. He is 28 years old and of
attractive appearance.
First suspicion against Lynam was
said Here to-day by the authorities to
have developed soon after he had ob
tained a leave of absence from the
Chester. When he overstayed his leave
an investigation was begun. His safe
Qn the Chester was opened and it was
found that only $90 in cash remained,
according to statements to-day.
This development has worked a hard
ship on the 150 men of the skeleton
crew of the ship, for there Is no imme
diate cash on hand to make up the pay
rolls and the men are without Raster
money. '
CONVERT INSURANCE BY 1926.
Permanent Policies Mast Be Taken
Within PlTe Years.
1
Washington, March 26.?The War
Risk Insurance Bureau sent out a warn
irg to-night to all former service men
that their wartime or term Insurance
must be converted into permanent
policies before March 3. 1926.
Passage of the joint resolution by Con
gress which construes certain war laws
as though a state of peace existed, auto
matically made effective provisions of the
War Risk Insurance act for the conver
sion of wartime Insurance Into one of the
three permanent types, according to the
bureau's announcement.
These provisions require the conversion
within five years after the date of the
declaration of peace, but the Joint reso
lution superceded the peace declaration
in establishing the effective late or the
conversion privileges, officials explained.

ence to former service men in the postal

Victims of Peonage System
in Georgia.
tticcial Despatch to Th? Nbw York Hbraid.
? Jasper, Ga., March 26.?The bodies
of alx more negroes were recovered to
day In the neighborhood of the farm of
John Williams, who. It Is charged, had
them killed in order to cover up tho
fact he was holding negroes on his place
in peonage. Williams is in Jail, charged
with murder, and his three sons were
arrested this afternoon.
J'he search In the region of his farm
and the Investigation Into the practice
of keeping men in bondage is being
conducted by agents of the Department
of Justice. With the six bodies found
to-day the bodies of nine negroes have
come to light so far, and it Is stated
that at least two more will be recovered
in another day's search.
The ta.sk of searching for bodies was
simplified to-day when Clyde Manning,
a negro, who acted as a sort of overseer
on Williams's farm, confessed ho was
tlia one who actually killed the duad
men. and took the United State* agents
to tho graves where the victims had been
buried. Manning declares all the killing
was done at the direction of Williams,
and that he obeyed Williams's orders
because he was afraid his own life
would pay the forfeit if he refused.
More nod lea Souflrht.
The bodies of three negroes who used '
to work on Williams's farm were found
two weeks ago in the Yellow River.
Manning declares two more dead men
will be found in the Alcovy River, a
stream which skirts Williams's place

One of the bodies found to-day wan
taken from the Alcovy Kiver It was
hoisted from the river bed, to which
it had been sunk weighted down with
500 pounds of stone secured to the body
by chains.
The other five dead men were found
in shallow grave* In a grovo. Four had
been killed with an ax or some other
heavy farm implement and the fifth had
been murdered with a shotgun at close
range, from behind. The bodies of the
three negroes found two weeks ago had
been sent to the bed of the Yellow River,
shackled and weighted. Just like the one
recovered to-day from the Alcovy River.
Prisoner Droiea Guilt.
Williams denies responsibility for the
deaths of the men and appeared great
ly cheered when he learned Manning had
admitted the actual killings.
Although it Is not believed there has
been any murder to cover peonage ex
cept of negroes who worked on Will
iams's place, farmers of Jasper and
Newton counties are In a state of appre
hension concerning what may be dis
closed by the Investigation of Federal
agents, for the agents have Information
that the practice of keeping negroes in
virtual slavery has existed on the farms
of other men besides Williams and tlielr
orders are to pursuo their Investigation
until they either verify the Information
they have or find it is tlnfounded.
Words waa received from Atlanta to
night that the Department of Justio?
agents will be given the protection of
State troops if any attempt Is made to
interfere with them or to impede their
investigation.
