The procession formed at Victoria Embankment at. 11:30 a. mv On its march of five miles to, the cemetery it passed Salvation Army headquarters in Queen : Victoria street, where the waiting hearse Joined the line. Draping - the coffin was the Sana tion Army's blood-and-f ire flag and on it lay General Booth's uniform cap and his Bible. Directly preceding the hearse march ed Commissioner Adelaide Cox, carry ing the, banner which General Booth planted: on .Mt. Calvary with his own hands when in the Holy Land. Fol lowing it came General Bramwell Booth, the late General's son, and the army's new commander, and the oth er members of the dead evangelist's family, on foot. At the head of the line, uniformed .Salvationists, held the standards of many nations in' which the army Is represented. , Detachments of English soldiers and sailors joined the procession as it. pro ceeded toward the cemetery. All business houses on the!. Une of march were1 closed and most ; of them were heavily draped In black. The 'Lord Mayor of London, in his robes- and chain of office, stood at aainte ' in. front - of . his official resi dence, thef Mansion House; as. the mourners passed: - : , ' ' The services at the graveside Be gan with' the singing of , the hymn, "O Death, ', Where Is Thy Sting?

Though the auditorium at Olympia is the largest in London, . it ' was in adequate to hold a tithe of the thou sands who flocked to the memorial service held there, last night. The hearse reached the cemetery an hour and a half late , owing to the enormous crush of spectators in the streets through which it passed. Hun dreds fainted and many were injured The throng was especially , dense in the vicinity of the Salvation Army headquarters. Of the marchers, hun dreds fell out - of line .exhausted be fore the cemetery was reached. Large numbers of them were so prostrated that it was necessary to remove them in ambulances.

( ap CONVENTION SYSTEM CRUDE SAYS WILSON Congressional Candidate Tells Second District Democrats They're True Jeffersonians Informing Address Listened to With Rapt Attention by Large Gathering Lynn W. Wilson addressed three meetings, last night, an open air meeting In the Second, a meeting in Timko's hall, in the Third, and a large assemblage of Fairfield Democrats, at Sasco Hill, Southport. A large crowd greeted him at Rail road avenire and Lajyette street, in the Second, where a considerable por tion of his remarks were devoted to direct primaries. He said:--. "The Democrats of the Second, are entitled, to. congratulation for the part they have always taken in promoting direct primaries. In this you prove yourselves true Jeffersonians. "The convention system is undemo cratic and unbusinesslike. The will of the voter, which is the foundation of the demooratitc system, cannot be expressed , - by delegates, even when those ' delegates are absolutely honest and sincere. "Recently, in the Republican party, there were two candidates for Mayor, and competing delegations favorable to one or the' other of them. . There were also two candidates for Town Clerk, and for some other offices. .-Now all the voter could'get by vot ing for delegates in this ease was his candidate for Mayor. The delegates once, elected could and did choose en tirely other nominees than, the - indi vidual voter had wajited. " - H "Under direct primaries each 'voter wwuld not only ex pre s his choice for Mayor, but his choice for City Clerk, Town Clerk and each other office. t'How . disadvantageously the system works In the issue before us. A nom ination , for Congress is" in question. The Congress is an Important body. The office, of representative in Con gress is one of the most vital. , . "Such ,a question ought to be de cided: upon its- merits. ; Bach voter should be abla to express his approval. or his disapproval of. me, directly, at a primary. "But that isn't the way it is being done. I have in my. hand-.a.' circular, in opposition to the delegation in this district which is favorable, to- me. "This circular doesn't discuss the is sues. It doesn't consider whether, the leadership of . the party: should be changed. . It doesn't refer to-. the Con gressional candidacy . in any way, v "It is an appeal to affections and hatpedR. It says .JhaJL some s canqi, dates ' for ielegates are good leftows, and some are, not. - It. wants you to choose delegates,' not to do somethiryr you want done, hut because, you love them, or- hate them,, as Individuals. "There is nothing in this circular about " principles, or what, tney are. There is a great deal about jobs, and many' accusations : that somebody vot ed, or did not : vote, to, give a job to somebodv else. 'Nothing whatever about the thinar that is to be settled "The way delegate tickets are made up" is equally clumsy and indirect and eauallv a hindrance, to the orderly transaction of public business. ."First we look over the district to find somebody who has a big. family of sons who vote, and . cousins and other relatives who vote, i Then we put a" man from that family on the delegate ticket and .tell him. to go out nrr hnsMp. He does go out. 1 He appeals to his friends to vote for him tn lD him from being beaten. Blood ia thicker than water. Hundreds of votp are cast that way. "But the question is whether party lMdorshin should be changed and whether somebody should go to Con ercRS. and not who is the most pop ular man in the district, or who has the most friends. " "You see that the convention system is unbusinesslike. It is so. indirect and clumsy and awkward that the wonder is we are able to transact puo lift hnsinPRS- at all. "Any private business run in that way would perish. It is a great trib ute to the principles of democracy and to the stability and intelligence of the American people that you can keep the country gofng at all when proo lems are decided in that way." DISASTROUS FIRE . SWEEPS NORWICH Loss to Merchants May Reach $300,000 - Coal Pockets Still Smolder 1 Man Burned to Crisp May be Irresponsible Cause of Own Holocaust , Norwich, Aug. 29. One man was burned to death and $300,000 worth of property destroyed in a fire which swept over Central Wharf, early to day. The wharf burned to the wa ter's edge and the buildings of the Edward Chappell Coal. & Lumber Company, John A. Morgan & Son, coal dealers, Peck, McWilliams & Company, dealers in contractors' sup plies, went up in flames. The heavi est loss is by the Chappell company, whose estimate is $150,000. The fire started in a small office building of the Chappell ' Company and it was near the entrance to this that the charred body of a man was found. His head was burned to a crisp and there seems to be no means of identification. One of the watch men said he saw the man evidently intoxicated lying in the spot where he was found, early last night. Al though the origin of the tire has not been ascertained, it is believed that the burned man was responsible for it. The Are is still burning in the coal pockets of the wharf and will prob ably continue for several days. PERSONAL MEXTIOX. Mr?. August Hoffman of 36 Pleas ant street is the guest of Mrs. A.

REILLY IS ARRESTED VIA TELEPHONE Charges That Alleged Strat ford Prize Fight Has Been Exaggerated . IS RELEASED ON BAIL OF $1,000 Says the Affair Was Noth ing More Than Boxing Match Usual at Athletic Outings. Spite work on " the part of a news paper writer, a political dodge to bet ter chances of certain politicians at the town election which isn't far cis tant, and, a dastardly outrage, are some of the characterizations nut up on the activity of the . State police- fn cleaning up the Stratford prize fight scandal, by some of those who are implicated in the mess. On the other hand, the State police claim that the whofe affair was complete and flagrant violation of the laws, a bold and deliberate disregard for. the statutes and an incident which goes" to show a general condition of lawlessness on the part of a certain gang of Bridgeport sports. ' ' Today's developments . brought one more Bridgeporter before Judge C H. Peck of the Stratford court- in re sponse to a warrant that, was Issued against him. Henry E. Reilly of 35 Cannon street, - well known through out the ctiyr learned ( that he was one of those for. whom a warrant had been issued. He telephoned State Po liceman Prank Virelli this forenoon to confirm this fact ;r was told that his name was on a warrant , and replied that he would accept service by tele phone and would call upon Judge Peck fmmediately. True -to' his word Railly appeared before Judge Peck at his office in Bridgeport, a. short - time later ' and furnished $1,000 bonds for his appearance in the Stratford -court Frid ay af ternooft at 2 o'clock, . when ail, the. cases will come up Reilly is . alleged- to have been the timekeeper at -"the : fight. - He was asked" this noon concerning the affair, and replied that "he was nresent at the affair , in -Stratford Sunday, but that the whole , thing had been pictured m explained Reilly, "plans were made, for an . - outing of - the Lincoln Athletic club; tickets - were -sold at' $1 apiece, and there was no idea of conducting a prize fight. It: was to be, an outing of the athletic club: a program of Lrports had ..been arranged; there was & clam bake and tne wnoie ining wa a social similar to those, that, are held nearly i every Sunday in thet summer time. - in tne program oi sRjris i- was olanned. to have a ten round box ing exhibition,, as well as -a baseball came and other athletic events. ' "The , talk , about bare f lsta and all that is pure" bosh. It. all Tiomes from the ' imagination of a dissatisfied news paper writer, who has a grudge against the members of the club because thay had previously interfered with plane Of his in the management oi a oox ing match laet winter. He was a. pro mntftr for a fighter called the Myster ious Bly. He refused to make known the name of the boxer and the mem bers of the East Side boxing frater nity wouldn't allow the match to go on. "Rinr thpn he has been sore. and the whole mess that has been stirred up is nothing more or less than spite work on his part. Those , who were at the outing will be able to prove in ' court. I am sure, ' that the outing was no . different than other outings ioiri tVirmie-hout the summer. J.ne charsre that the outing was arranged for the main purpose of putting on a prize fight is. absurd. "The newspaper writer in question, who by the way shows his weakness by how carrying around' a loaded re volver out of : fear ,. of - harm 'that . may come to him from-those he has in jured, was invited to attend the out ing, came there in good faith," was treated nicely and enjoyed every bit of hospitality the club could show him. He deceitfully congratulates the club upon the success of the affair and apparently goe away with the best of feelings. Then the next.mora ing in his paper he pictures the box ing exhibition as a bloody prize fight. Why, the boxers had gloves as big and soft as pillows on their fists, they boxed on a soft matting, and it was purely a clean, straight forward ex hibition of the boxing art and noth ing more'. To have it made oat worse in an absolute falsehood and a plain bit. of spite work on the part of the newspaper writer. They talk, about liquor being on the ground; whiskey and all that. "' Why, there wasn't a bit of hard stuff there at all. There was beer and soft drinks and sandwiches and everything that are to be had at an outing. Everything was done in, the open; there was nothing to prevent any one from going in to witness the fun; the grounds were duly hired for an oifting of the club. "The minute I learned that I wafi wanted by the state police I tele phoned State Policeman Virelli and told him I would call on Judge Peck. I was out of town yesterday but didn't skip away as the morning paper would like to make it appear. I didn't know that there was going to be any trou ble over an ordinary Sunday's outing ahd had no reason" for feeling obliged to stay in the city. I was surprised that warrants had been issued and the minute I learned that I was one of those wanted, I phoned to the state police. The whole matter- is unfair to members of the Lincoln Athletic club and a piece of bitter spite work that has never been equalled for its out right meanness." tContmued on Page 2.) HEXRY GEORGE, JR.

Fred Enos, who has left, no stone unturned to smooth our way here, has greatly influenced our selection of Bridgeport as our new home. ' ; , The factory, excavations for which are now in progress will be a three story main building. of brick, with modern sprinkler and individual mo tor transmission ..systems throughout. It will be L-shaped to surround small er buildings for steam plant, lacquer ing and statuing departments. A spur track; from the.

The Connecticut Electrical JManufac turing company is under the guidance of President Trumbull and his three brothers, Isaac, George and James and offices have been established in Chicago as well as the Pacific coast.

ROOSEVELT PLEli1 FOR VERMONT VOTE Adinits That He Perspnally Is the , Issue oft Present : , Compaign ; Opponents, Willing ; That Country Should Suffer i Anything If Only He Is Defeated. --:z Bennington, Vt., Aug. 2 9. -Directly appealing for votes because of the ad ! mitted peculiar relation between the ! result here and the coming general election, Colonel Roosevelt tookv the stump personally, today, to ask 'the ; voters to elect the progressive state ticket. Incidentally, Roosevelt took occasion to renew his 'verbal attack , on John D. Archbbld, of the Standard Oil Company, Senator Penrose, of, Pennsylvania, and to repeat his con tentions that he and his party rep resent the Simon-pur Republicans of the nation. Roosevelt appealed es-' pecially to the younger voters in the crowd. He said he felt in' finest fettle. He considers. Wilson his only real opponent for the presidency." "Vermont has led in the past," he shouted, "let her lead now. Jim Wat son, of Indiana, is coming "here to speak against me. He was one of the mechanics of the steamroller at Chi cago and he admitted that the 'roller should split the Republican party but he insisted that it .would still carry Vermont. - But it won't. The aim of Watson and his associates is to beat' me rather than to win at the elec-, tion. They are willing that any -dis- aster shall come to the country if they can only beat the men wha are1 striving to restore to the people their own government. ' "We are fighting the ' alliance be tween crooked business and crooked politics. Penrose and Archbold trump i up and admit what we charge. Pen rose nasn t aenance to carry fenn sylvania for the Repuglican party. All"" he wants is to beat the progressives there in the interest of his old Re- , publican machine. Penrose and Arch bold told their story before the Senate investigating committee. Then the standpatters on that committee per mitted Archbold to go off to EJurope ' and refused to hear me. Archbold alleges Mr. Bliss tried to blackmail him in my interests. ' 1 "What Penrose complains of Is that he didn't get the goods. - His -talk is the same as a crooked police officer uses trying to get money from law breakers and Penrose - should : be thrown out of the Senate. He is con- ' demned out of his own mouth." Roosevelt then reviewed at length the Archbold charges and declared that the Standard Oil spokesman's characterization of James R. Garfield was a "certificate of character" for the Ohioan. He said that he had been as&ured by old time politicians. that the progressive enthusiasm was sweeping the state and predicted sue-' cess, for the ticket, next Tuesday. II. C. HOWE'S COTTAGE BURNED.
