Had JTuat Reached Hotel from Theater When Stricken Physicians Quickly Summoned But Too Late to Do Any GoodHad Flayed One of Hia Hard est Characters His Own Adaptation of Lord Tennyson's "Beckef Great Consternation Caused Among His Company. London, Oct 13. The English speak ing world has suffered an' Irreparable loss by the sudden death to night of Sir Henry Irving, "who was universally re garded as the most representative Eng lish actor of contemporary times. Sir Henry died , literally in harness He was giving a series of farewell per formances in the English provinces and this week was playing an engagement at Bradford, appearing In several fav orite roles. , Thursday he presented "King Rene's Daughter" and "The Bells," and appeared to be In excellent health, taking the exhausting part of Mathias In the latter play with all the vigor ol youth. To-night, .before an en thusiastic audience, he portrayed one of his most characteristically intellectual parts, the title role in his own stage adaptation of Lord Tennyson's "Beck et," with marked success. After the performance, Sir Henry re turned to his hotel, reaching his rooms at" 11:30 o'clock, when it was observed that he was in great pain. Physicians were immediately summoned, but be fore they could arrive Sir Henry was seized with an attack of syncope and expired within a few minutes, without having uttered a word, in the presence of Bram Stoker, :who had been his im mediate manager for many years, and a few other intimate friends. The event caused the greatest pain and con sternation among the members of the company. The Associated Press to-night receiv ed the following telegram from Mr. Stoker: .,, "Very terrible hews. Sir Henry Irv ing had an attack of syncope after returning from the theater to the hotel o-nlght and .died suddenly. : . To the last "moment of his life Sir Henry Irving's heart was In the work to which he had devoted his career the" raising! of the standard of his art. On Wednesday he was entertained at luncheon in the Bradford town hall, at wMcI the mayor presented to him an -address from -his admirers. , In re plying to the address, Sir Henry spoke of himself as one whose life sands were fast running out, but no one then pres ent had the slightest idea that the end (would come sosoon. He proceeded in his reply to eloquently advocate the establishment of theaters y the muni. cipalities, "because," he said, "I believe that 'by this means the standard of the true drama, as distinguished from mis cellaneous entertainments, would be successfully upheld. Money is spent like water for all kinds of philanthropic and educational objects, but who amongst you ever dreams of endowing the thea ter? 'I am sure the time will come . when you will regard the theater as necessary to a liberal education, and be prepared to consider any reasonable suggestions for the extension of Its le- gitimate influence. It may be that in years to come our countrymen will scarcely understand how In our times bo potent an instrument of good or ill as the stage was lefe entirely outside the sphere of public administration." " Sir Henry Irving's last appearances In London were made last summer, fol lowing his serious illness, when the en thusiasm at the nightly receptions ac corded him in the historic Drury Lane theater will long be remembered. Since then he had been engaged in touring the provinces and contemplated another visit to the United States. BRIGHTER OUTLOOK. Columbia's Football Prospects Turn for the Better. Take New York. Oct. 13. Columbia univer sity's football prospects were bright ened to-night by an authoritative statement from the faculty representa tive that except for Thorpe, Carter and Starbuck, already declared ineligible, no member, of the present football squad would be kept from the game because of academic deficiencies. It was also stated that Duncan Browne, whose case has been considered by the Columbia graduate athletic commit tee In the light of the four-year rule, had .been found eligible to represent Columbia another year. He will be in the line -tip against Williams to-morrow. With Thorpe off the team for good It is probable that Browne, who is a Veteran tackle, , will be elected to suc ceed him as captain. The Columbia athletic committee is investigating the disturbance at the Wesleyan-Columbia game last Saturday, and will submit a report to President Butler, ex-officio chairman of the committee, on Mon day.

Declared a Source of Demoralization in Schools and Colleges. Boston, Oct 13. The New England Association of Colleges and Prepara tory Schools began a two day's session to-day at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with delegates from nearly every college and preparatory) school in New England. Professor Ed win H. Hall, of Harvard university spoke on the following proposition: 'That the definition of athletic pro fessionalism as now written, is a source of demoralization in schools and, colleges, and that the evils which this definition is intended to cdm-bat can be better met by limiting the number of games between institutions and fixing standards of academy standing and academic age for the participants in such games-" AMMVNITION CAPTURED. c., K-....1 .... ,,- t I w it vub fvinvu vast tuv ss ( Warsaw.

Mr. Whitney denied, however, that he had used undue influence. VA KDERBILT'S MARROW ESCAPE 1 - J Automobile Turns Over During Run Over Long Island Course. New York, Oct. 13.-Alfred G. Van derbilt and Paul Sartori, the French automobile driver, had a narrow es cape from a serious injury while rac ing iii Mr. Vanderbilt's high powered automobile over th Vanderbilt cup course on Long Island to-day.

Then the machine turned over on its side and threw its occupants out onto the sort earth, sartori was slightly bruised, Dut Mr. vanderbilt was uninjured. They righted the ma chine and finished the course. MISSES CURTIS AND MACKAY. Two Boston Players to Decide Women's Golf Championship. Convent Station, N. J., Oct. 13.

Makes Long; Speech In Favor of Dis trict Attorney Before Executive Com mittee of ConventionOnly Twelve of the Members In Favor Rest Bit terly Opposed Charles A. Flammer Finally Chosen Jerome Thinks He Has Been Honored. New York, Oct 13. The republican conventions to select candidates for of fice in the borough of Manhattan were held to-night. Before the conventions met the executive committee of the county committee discussed for two hours the question whether or not the county convention would endorse Dis trict Attorney Jerome. Although there is no official relation between the bor ough and county conventions they are substantially the same and until the leaders, who made up the executive committee cold settle the question, both conventions were blocked- Of the thirty-seven members of the executive committee a dozen wer4 in favor of Mi. Jerome and insisted that he should to renominated for the office which he now holds- The balance of the cofnlttefe was bitterly opposed to his candidacy. As' no satisfactory ar rangement could be arrived at a mes sage was sent to William M. Ivins, the nominee for mayor, inviting him to ap pear before the committee and express his views. ' Mr. Ivins, in a long speech in favor of District Attorney Jerome, said that he was anxious for the selection of Mr. Jerome as his runiag mate in the cam paign. It would afford him great per sonal gratification, he said, but even so, he added, he did not wish the mem bers to feel that his personal feelings should rufe, and he would be willing to abide by their vote. Several other members spoke !n favor of Mr. Jerome. Among these was Chairman Halplh. who urged that Mr. Jerome should be selected. Among those who most blt- vsrly opposed Mr. Jerome's nomination was Abraham Gruber A vote was then taken on the propo sition and it resulted in 27 to 8 against Mr. Jerome s nomination.

Marshall for county clerk. , On the call for nominations for dis. trict attorney Charles A. Flammer was placed in nomination. The mention as a candidate of William T. Jerome by R K. Pretense set the convention in an uproar, but when the roll was called Jerome received only 9 votes against 237 for Flammer. The last nomination was that of Dr. H- A. C. Anderson for registrar. As the convention was about to ad journ Mr. Ivins, the candidate for may or, entered and was received with en thusiasm. During the course of his ad dress Mr. Ivins said, speaking of the question of municipal ownership: "I believe that every franchise that has lapsed should at once be acquired by the city. I believe that every fran chise that has been forfeited should be at once(put into the way of acquisition fo-y the most relentless pursuit of the parties who acquired that that fran- chose uprighteously. I -believe that there should 'be no new grants of fran chi'ses in perpetuity whatsoever. "I believe that all the wealth created by our community should be held In perpetuity by the community and for the use and benefit of our community and not for the aggrandizement of j iarg6 sums of money by individuals." Mr, jerome said when told of the re mit of t;he convention: ; "It hag not happened in my memory a man has been so honored or re- : ceiVed such an endorsement as has been practically unanimous in the opposition of the district leaders of all political parties."

QUAKERS LOSE FOURTH GAME AGAIN SHUT OUT BY THE NEW YORK NATIONALS. If Latter Win Game To-day the World's Championship Will be Decided Monte Cross Mnkes Costly Fumble Allows Man to Reach First His Er ror Forms Nucleus for Run. New York, Oct. 13. Three to one is now the advantage of the New York Nationals over the Philadelphia Amer icans in the struggle for the interleague .world's baseball championship in the post-season series of seven games. New York's National league champions scor ed their third victory to-day, and if the local men succeed In getting the' better of the' visitors in to-morrow's contest the world's champtbnship flag will' fly from the big mast in the Polo grounds. Philadelphia, heavily handicapped by the loss of the services ; of the erratic pitcher, Waddell, has succumbed to the masterful work of Mathewson twice, and to-day McGinn! ty pitched gilt- edged ball, which partially atoned for his defeat at the hands of Bender last Tuesday on the same diamond- . Managers Mack and McGraw arrived on the battlefield to-day with firm de termination, and while the betting, which at times was lively, indicated that the local men were almost pro hibitive favorites, not a few of the Philadelphia adherents were willing to risk money on the visitors' chance of victory-. These bets were snapped up quickly, and before the game had gone two innings all wagering . was at a standstill. . Manager Mack decided that his In dian pitcher should have a sufficient rest and put In Plank, who with good backing might not have lot. : In the fourth inning, however, Monte Cross was- so anxious to get a bounder from Mertes bat that he fumbled the ball and juggled with it long enough to let the batter reach first safely. This was the only error recorded In the game, but it was an expensive one, as it form ed the nucleus of a run, the run which won. . McGinnlty and Plank were in perfect harmony as to masterly work, except when they faced each other from plate to box, when, while neither accomplish ed much with the willow, the defeated twirler had the best of it, as he got a hit in the third inning. Were it not for the Philadelphia's shortstop making his misplay the game was so closely and well played that it (Continued on Fifth Page.)

FRANCE MAY YET OSE fOP.CE WITH tlEZUELA ULTIMATUM HAS BEEN PRACXI , CALLY BEADY SOB A WEEK. Paris Haa Fall Assent of the fatted States to Adopt Effective Coarse to Obtain Renewal of Diplomatic Rela ........ . tions Also the Restoration of French Property Seised by Caracas Govern mentThis Country la Good Way to Settle Its Grievances by Diplomacy. ' Washington, Oct, 13. American . grievances against Venezuela may be settled by diplomacy, while France, In the absence of any diplomatic relations at Caracas, may yet be compelled to resort to a show of force. Despite the assurances of foreign office officials at Paris, it is stated here that the French ultimatum has been practically ready to dispatch for a week or more, and that France has the full assent of the Washington government to adopt an effective course of action against Ven ezuela to obtain the renewal of diplo matic relations and the restoration ol French property seized by the Caracas government. This, briefly, is the situation to-night. The French ultimatum will be held up until further conferences have oocurred between the French embassy here and the state department So. far as Judge Calhoun, . the American special com missioner, has reported to the depart ment, there is nothing In the situation at Caradas that cannot be settled by patient and firm diplomacy. American and French property, it; Is contended, has been seized unjustly by President Castro, hut ample precedent is found Ir. history for the settlement, without re sort to force, of problems more compli cated than the present issue. While not prepared to announce defi nitely its exact course or action, tha Washington government has let Franoe know informally its belief that Ameri can grievances against Venezuela, al though severe, can be settled without the assistance of American warships.' This information was not communicat ed with any intention of forestalling a resort by France to force, but was in answer to the earnest request of the ' Paris government. v Patience in France is rapidly becom ing exhausted over the delay of the government in proceeding against Ven ezuela' and this fact necessarily acts as a spur In the conferences between Paria and Washington. This government will give France every possible assistat-a"" toward a "diplomatic adjustment. A thorough understanding exists between . Paris and Washington on this subject. and even if France shall find it neces- ! sary to establish 'a Pacific blockade against Venezuela, " the ' Washington government will offer no objection, hav ing already assured : Itself that the Monroe doctrine is not involved in any way. J In diplomatic circles -the opinion is expressed that the Venezuelan presi dent would yield before a Pacific block ade is established. The aversion on the part of France and the United States to the use of warships in this case arises from the fact that the blockad ing of Venezuelan ports at this time will affect not so much Venezuela as it will the creditor powers to whom ' a portion of the customs receipts has been awarded by The Hague tribunal until their claims shall have been paid in full.
