WROTE "MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY" Author, Preacher and Philanthropist, His Work Is Monument to Himself. Boston. Mass.. Special: As quietly and poacefully as he had lived for fourscore years Rev. Dr. Edward Ever ett Hale died at his picturesque home in Roxbury early Thursday morning, and a life devoted to the betterment of mankind came to a close. The revered chaplain of the United States Senate simply took to his bed. gathered his wife, son and. daughter about him. and in a few hours passed to his Maker, whose work he has car ried on with a faithfulness that made him one of the most beloved clergy men in the United States. His death was a great shock to his friends throughout the country, few knowing that he was In other than ro bust health. As an author Dr. Halo's fame rests on his short stories, such as "The Man Without a Country;" as an Instigator of the social uplift, the work of the two great organizations, the Lend-a-Hand Clubs and the King's Daughters, will always add to his renown; as a minister and pastor, his half century In the pulpit of the South Congrega tional Church and his preaching in many other churches were prolific or wise spiritual Inspiration; as a his torian, his writings have become au thorities. It was Dr. Hale who, 20 years boforo its consummation, predicted a world wide peace tribunal; It was Dr. Hale who upheld Garrison and Phillips In their anti-slavery work: It was Dr. Halo whose benevolent counsel brought comfort to the sick and wounded soldiers on the battle-fields ot the Civil War as a member of the Sanitary Commission, and it was Dr. JIale who gave to the world the fa mous stanza: "Look up and not down; Look forward and not back; Look out and not in; Lend a hand." Dr. Hale was born In this city In 1S22. and by training, education and tradition he represented throughout the 87 years of his life the spirit of tho founder of Massachusetts Bay Col ony. He was graduated from Harvard In 1S39. He was actively connected with the Boston Advertiser many years ago, and his first charge as a clergyman waa a church In Worcester. He was a prollflc writer and had for years been identified with the important philan thropic movements of tho city, state and nation. Dr. Hale's literary career bnsan un usually early. Six years after his birth he was studying Latin under the direction of his father, Rev. Nathan Hale. His studies were continued at the Boston Latin School and at Har vard College. Besides being a preacher Rev. Nathan Hale was a printer, and In his office the son Edward learned typeset ting and developed a leaning toward newspaper work, which, during his college course at Harvard, he culti vated by becoming a reporter on the Boston Advertiser. In later years, although he had elect ed to follow his father's calling as a clergyman of the Unitarian faith, ho became editor of the Advertiser, oc cupving the chair at the time of the Civil War.

HOWARD GOULD IN DIVORCE SUIT. ACCOUNTS FOR PAT OF BIG BILLS Used $500 to Replenish Hosiery and $5,000 for Five Tailored Suits One Year's Bill $70,000. New York, Special: What appear ed to bo hazy memory of Mrs. Kath erino Clemmons Gould on tho second day of her testimony In cross-examination brought a rebuke from Su preme Justice DowIIng, who Is hear ing her suit for separation from her husband, Howard Gould, second son of the late Jay Gould. Another Inter esting phase of the case was a tilt between Lawyers Delancoy Nlcoll for the defendant and Clarence J. Shearn for Mrs. Gould. "Please try to bo polite," Mr. Shearn cautioned Mr. Nlcoll, when the latter asked the witness a ques tion sharply. "Oh, I'm sick of trying to be po lite. I'll be polite all day and Mrs. Gould won't answer a straight ques tion," retorted Nlcoll. "Yes, the witness has given Mr. Nlcoll much unnecessary trouble," Justice DowIIng Interposed. Once she apologized for her in ability to tell whether certain res taurant checks were hers, saying she was interested in knowing "how her husband spent Ms money," and again when she could not tell whether a diamond pendant valued at $13,300 had been bought by her or her husband "for another." Delancey Nicoll protested vigorously against this insinuation and Justice Dowling ordered it stricken from the record. The amounts of assorted jewels, tailors' costumes and bootmakers' bills continued to make the specta tors admitted to the court room gasp and stare. Tho articles purchased In cluded the pearl rope which the wit ness wore, listed at $27.000; tho dis puted pendant, at $13,300; a diamond chain at $22,000; a diamond diadem at $24.000; a sapphire ring at $G,000. Such little things as $500 worth of silk stockings at a time or $1,528 for shoes were trivial by comparison. Five tallormade suits were ordered at at cost of $5,S07. "Under what name were you mar ried?" was the next query. "Under the name my father gave me." "Ever known by another name?" "I took tho name of my stepfather, Dayan, and I was known as Viola Dayan when I first went on the stage. Mr. Dayan's father, a minister, objected to the name going on the billboards. I went back to tho name Clemmons." "Do you know Woodward?" asked Mr. Nicoll. referring to "Big Bill" Hawley. who was used In an effort to prove Mrs. Gould a bigamist "No," she answered, decisively, and began to fan herself nervously. "Did you ever know him?" "I was introduced to him once by Helen Mar on a steamer going to Europe." "Did you and Miss Mar go to Lon don with Woodward?" "We did not, I saw him only on the steamer."

"I may not go on the stump and make speeches," said Mrs. Belmont, "but other women who are able speak ers will be heard, and one of the live liest campaigns ever known In this state will be seen next fall. New York should be the battlefield In America, the same as London is In England, and I am confident the women, both In England and America, will soon have the right to vote. "Why should not taxpayers have the right to vote? I hear that Miss Anne Morgan expresses herself In opposi tion to woman suffrage, but she can not advance one good reason against the ballot for women." Bryan's Son to Wed.

London, Juno 11, Cable: A cable gram was received hero from Cap tain Peterson, of tho North German Lloyd steamship, Irene, which says that he has taken on board 110 cabin passengers and that the Hamburg American Liner Batavia had the 300 steerage of the steamship Slavonio. which was wrecked off Flores Island In the Azores group. The message also displayed the proverbial good fortune of the Cunard Line, which up to now has been able to boa3t that It has never lost a pas senger. The passengers of the lost ship will proceed to their destinations with slight delay. Just how the Slavonia came to launch herself upon the precipitous shores of tho Flores Island, the west ernmost of the Azores group; how long the passengers were on board before rescue came, or how the trans fers of these voyagers was accomp lished. Is still to be told. It is not even known just when the Cunarder struck nor whether all of the officers and crew were saved. At)the time the message came from Captain Peterson the Cunard Line had not received the first hint of a dis aster to the Slavonia. The Princess Irene is one of the crack ships of the North German Lloyd, ami the Batavia is one of the Mediterranean fleet ot the Hamburg Line. Tho Slavonia left this port on June 3 under Captain A. G. Dunning, a most experienced navigator and noted for his caution. The ofilcers and crew numbered fully 200. so that on board the ship when she stranded off Flores Island there were at least C10 persons. May Not Use Geographies.

After a careful examination of the law, the board agreed that, ac cording to the bond given by the com pany at the time of tho contract five years ago, the state had no grounds for a case In court, since the bond did not provide for recovery of damages by the state.

UPRISING CONSIDERED LOCAL After One Night's Possession the Con stabulary Retake the Place and Kill One. Manila, Cable: A portion of the second company of nativo constabu lary, stationed at Davao, in the Island of Mindanao, mutinied on tho night of June C and attacked the company quar ters, which they captured after wound ing ono of the native officers. After a fight lasting two hours on the following day, in which one man named Libbey was killed and four others were wounded, the mutineers took to the mountains on the approach of a company of the constabulary sta tioned at Mapl, which hurried to the relief of the besieged Americans and loyal natives. Without any warning, tho mutineers suddenly attacked the quarters at night and gained possession of them before any resistance could be offered by a few native noncommissioned offi cers and several loyal members of the company. Governor Walker of the Da vao province, of which the city of Da vao Is the capital, immediately rallied the Americans and such natives as could be trusted In a large church and preparations for defense were hastily made during the night. Windows and doors were barred, loopholes cut, food and water taken into the building, and everything made ready to withstand a siege. At 5 o'clock on the afternoon of the 7th the mutineers began an attack on tho church. For three hours the fight raged. A heavy fire was directed against the church and Its defenders, but Governor Walker and his small force replied with such vigor that they discouraged all attempts to storm tho place. The mutineers retired and evidently expected to await darkness under cov er until a safer and more successful attack could be made on the church. In the meantime, however, news of the mutiny had reached Mati, a town of considerable size, forty-six miles southeast of Davao. A company ot constabulary stationed there immedi ately hurried to the relief of Davao. Their approach caused the disloyal constabulary force to withdraw during the night Thirty native troopers es caped to the mountains with their arms and equipment. Acting Governor General Forbes, who returned from the Province of Pampanga and soon was in conference with Maj. Gen. William Duval, com manding the division of the Philip pines, said: "This affair, deplorable as it seems to have been, has not changed my opinion of the native constabulary, nor my belief In the general excellency and loyalty of the force. Judgment must be roserved until we receive fur ther details of the mutiny and the causes that brought it about." Finds $4,867 In a Bible. New York.
