Author, Preacher and Philanthropist,
His Work Is Monument to
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.

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
"Ever known by another name?"
"I took tho name of my stepfather,
Dayan, and I was known as Viola

billboards. I went back to tho name
"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
"Did you and Miss Mar go to Lon
don with Woodward?"
"We did not, I saw him only on
the steamer."

New York, Special: Mrs. Oliver
Hazard Perry Belmont, who, with Mrs.

ternational Woman Suffrage Conven
tion In London, arrived home last Fri
day on the Mauretanla, and an
nounced that she would from this time
forward wage a vigorous fight In be
half of the ballot for women.
"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."

ment says: "Thousands ot our Ameri

Most of Them Are Americans Bound
For South European
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.
Indianapolis, Special: Whether the
public schools of the state will have
primary geographies during the com
ing school year will depend on the dis
posal to be made by the state board of
school book commissioners of a mo
tion made by Governor Marshall to the
effect that no such text book be used
during that time. The motion was
made at the morning session and at
once divided the board. The motion
was made after notice had been re
ceived from the MncMillan company,
publisher of the Tarr & Mc.Murray
primary geographies, to the effect that
the company refused to supply the
books at the old price of 30 cents a
volume. 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.

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
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."
