Senator Piles based his con tention in favor of four ships on the possibilities of war with Japan, say ing that the Japanese were irresist ibly drawn to our , shores by the -advantages seeured here. He said that a conflict between them and the Americans is liablu to arise at any time and in that event, the Japanese might be forced to wage an aggressive war against the t'nited States even though the Japanese leaders were un favorable to such a course. If. he de clared, war should come, our coast ( would be found unfortified and unpro- ( Piles in fayor of tec ted by battleships.

I bid it tiod speed, hoping we shall get out of the experiment without any compli cations. I do not fear danger us 1 do not think the people in any part of the world where the fleet will go will be found hostile to us, and I do not fear the remotest possibility of war be tween any country and the I'nited States." An earnest appeal was made by Mr. four battleships, "is a measure of He came from a but for such measures as will insure peace and security. There should be two fleets, one for the Pacific and the other for the Atlantic coasts. "If" he said " we had two fleets we could wage war on no nation and no nation would wage war upon us. So I stand for peace in urging four battle ships, not for war." Senator Hale opened the debate by submitting a statement of the naval estimates already provided for. which section of country that must be the storm center of any conflict on the Pacific ocean. The people of the Pa cific were In favor of four battleships. He sent to the vice president's desk a statement of the vote of 162 editors attending a meeting in New York, which he said, showed 126 in lavor of four batt'eshiys and the president's policy of naval expansion.

He would vote for four new ships as a peace measure. He been recommended as "being suitable i would, he said, rather be wrong in and essential to maintain our rank . voting for four than 'right in voting and dignity in view of the fact that the fleet is to visit Asiatic ports, per haps Africa, Mediterranean and Eu ropean ports." He said that the president, as com mander in chief, in command of the fb-ct. may order it where he will, in the absence of law and regulations, but of course, congress If it desired. had any positive knowledge that the fleet now in the Pacific was to be sent around the world. Mr. Hale re plied that he had no direct positive information, but from the legislation recommended he was sure the fleet was preparing, to encircle the globe. Mr. Hale said that legislation had for two. He was applauded. Senator M -Crcary, advocating the four battleships amendment said .the nations of the world were increasing their navies and unless the Unital States rnntinued to increase it would find that it was not even a second class naval power.

He comment ed on the idea that war was not possi ble saying that If he believed such a doctrine he would vote against any navy. He insisted that war sprung up suddenly while it must be prepared against deliberately. "What information the executive has in his possession no man knows." declared Mr. Heveridge, referring to the president's message in favor of four battleships." An Important fact was that in no other message had the president made such recommendation on his solemn responsibility. Mr. Beveridgo reminded the senate "that the president was the greatest peacemaker in the world. During the latter part of the session a telegram was delivered to all the senators from a magazine " appealing to them for four battleships. "If the four battleships appropriation be not granted," the telegram stated, "we shall, urge the president to veto the naval bill." Early in the day Mr. Hankhead of Alabama, spoke in favor of a national appropriation for good roads.

The senate committee is suspi-iou of the proposition and thinks the former war rant issue is in the hands of specula tors and it would like to be shown Just who holds the warrant before passing upon Senator Piles proposition for a new issue to supersede the former. The plain fact of the matter is that the senate fears that the second bond proposition for Phoenix is a matter which has Its Inspiration In some per sons who have purchased the bonds of that city for speculative purposes and are now endeavoring to get out under cover of Piles' bill.

April 24. rln the presence of his bride of less than three months, Kmmanuel Theodore Bernard Marie IVAlbert Ie Luynes D'Aillv. ninth duke of Chaulnes. and of Piequigny. and marquis of Dengeau, died sud denly from heart failure, at 11 o'clock Thursday night in his apartments in the Hotel Lar.gham, Rue Boczador. Physicians summoned to attend the duke in his sudden illness, officially gave the cause of death as embolism of the heart. The Duchess De Chaul nes was Miss Theodora Shonts, the youngest daughter of Theodore P. Shonts of New York. They were married in New York on February 16 luBt. The wedding was a brilliant social function, and the end of the brief hotlTj-moon was sudden and tragic. Since the arrival of the couple here a month ago they lived comparatively quiet at the Hotel Langham, an occasional automobile ride In the afternoon" and evening-, din ing with intimate friends or going to the theater. The duke for years, had suffered from a weak heart and for some time had been suuject to fainting spells. Several times since his arrival here he has consulted Dr. Henri Iscovesco in an effort to obtain relief. Yesterday evening the duke and duchess, both in the best of spirits, returned from a drive in the Bois de Boulogne. They dined in.their private apartments. An hour after dinner the duke complained of feeling ill and re tired. About II o'clock he was sud denly strickened, gasped for breath and immediately lost consciousness. The duchess seized with a panic screamed for aid. A maid who responded to her cry was hurriedly despatched for Dr. Iscovesco, while the hotel management summoned another physician. Thv two doctors arrived simultaneously at the bedside of the ' sufferer and adminis tered the most powerful stimulants but their efforts were In vain. The duchess was holding tTe duke in her arms when he expired. She was overcome by grief and could not be persuaded by some American friends who visited the apartments to leave the bedside of her dead husband, but kept vigil there throughout the night. Theodore P. Shonts was notified by cable of his daughter's bereavement, and a message . was received today from him, saying that he will take the first steamer leaving New York to come to Paris. The duke's family was notified this morning and his sister, the duchess D'Uzes, who was at Biar ritz, started Immediately for Paris. Today Mrs. H. Millington Drake and other friends did what they could to comfort the distracted widow whose grief calmed somewhat during the af ternoon. When the death of the duke became generally known today, a steady stream of the duke's friends. In cluding a number of members of the French nobility, called at the hotel and left cards of -ondolence. ; The Refusal of the hotel authorities during the afternoon to give particu lars concerning the death of the Juke led to a report that there was some mystery surrounding it, but these were completely dissipated by M. Jeanton. the police physician who made an ex amination of the body in the presence of other physicians and officially cer tified that death was due to natural causes and that there was no necessity for an autopsy. Tonight the body of the duke was placed in a double oak coffin, and to morrow it will be transferred to a crypt in the church of St. Philip de Roule, where It will remain pending arrangements for the funeral which it is expected will not take place until after the arrival of Mr. Shonts from New York. In accordance with the traditions of French nobility, the funeral will be a pretentious function and will attract to Paris representatives of the most ancient families of France with which (he duke's family is allied.

April 'i . Th rrose .ution '.mid. ca'it-rt new witreses to the and In the case of Tirey L. Ford, on trial for bribing the super visors during the Sehmltz regime. One of the witnesses was Frank F. Morris, bookkeeper for the Western National Bank's Safe Deposit vaults. He testi fied that Abraham Ruef on May 25, 1906, rented a third safe deposit box, coincident with the drawing by Ford of $r,0.00i In small bills from the mint on that date, which, it is alleged by the prosecution was the money given to Ruef as the first payment to the su pervisors for the passage of the trolley ordinance May 21. The other new wit ness was State Senator George B. Keane, formerly associated with Ruef in the practice of law and clerk of the boodling board of supervisors. Keane's memory was rather vague on some points and portions of his testimony were Indefinite. Very little of impor tance was elicited from him. Other witnesses who repeated the testimony given at the former trials were Charles Haggerty, Ruef's office boy: W. K. Cole, cashier of the mint; K. D. Hawkins, bookkeeper at the mint and Nathan Selig, Hawkins' assistant. Another witness ' was Wm. M. Abbott, assistant general counsel for the Unit ed Railways. A. A.

Ther came to see the fleet of battleships, and found the beach cities unable to accommodate all. Other thousands are passing the night in flwv streets .and different amusement resorts, all of wnlch re main open throughout the night. The bay cities today entertained the largest crowd in the history of the beach, and evervthing indica.es that the multitude will be doubled by the morning. Everybody wants to see the attleship fleet perforin its manoeuvers in the waters- of the bay tomorrow morning. In order to bring the excur sionists to the seashore in ample time for the spectacle, the electric car lines will begin a one-minute service at 3 o'clock in the morning. Hundreds of ueople on the sands to night, had thel forethought to bring blankets with them, while other hun dreds are spending the night without covering. Throughout the city tents sprang up as if by magic, and private residences have been thrown open: ! yet the streets are alive with people who can find no place- to spend the night. The sea was so rough todav and the supply of launches so small that only a portion of the 60.000 excursionists were able to gain passage to the ships and most of these had to be content with a circle around the war machines without attempting to board them.
