Jnator Cnrtls. who called at -he
White House today, received his first
Information of Senator Rayner's death
there. He expressed hla regret.
At o'clock last night Senator Ray

pours later a severe relapse came.
and the physicians were summoned. Ills
preath was short and his heart flut
tered uncertainly. From that moment
the fight with death became merely
a. question of hours, and the bulletin
Issued by the physicians at midnight
"Senator Rayner Is very low and Is
Mot expected to live through the night.
HI condition Is more desperate than
It haa ever been."
Through the early hours of the night
.Senator Rayner made a dogged light,
wt steadily grew weaker. He sank
peeper Into stupor and his heart regis
tered the ebbing of life with Its faint
aetlon. Aa dawn waa stealing in
trough the wlndowa the end came.
Campaign Work Hastened End.
i The .Intestinal disease. from which
Senator Rayner was auffnrlng was prac
tically Incurable. It ' first manifested
Itself some months ago, and the dis
tinguished Marylander'a duties In the
recent campaign hustend the end.
Even though physicians warned him of
the danger. Senator Rayner never
flinched from the work which was cut
out for him by the politicians of his
State. He Haw the success of the Denv
ocratlc party, of which he had ocen
a life-long member, approaching, mul
he was determined to do his share to
make Uie victory complete.
When he entered Into tho Joint debate
wun uourxe i-ocKran in L.yric nan,
Baltimore, about it. month auo. ohral
clans I old him such a supreme effort
threw his life Into tho balance. Never
theless, Senator Rayner mode a strong
address that night, one which exhaust
ed htm phys'calljr, And since that tlnio
he has been in the hands of his physi
cians. The Senator himself probably
neuevea nis great sircngtn wouiu tn
able htm to conquer the malady.
Party Problems Near His Heart
He saw In the election of Woodrow
Wilson to the Presidency a new career
of power and Influence In the Capital.
As he was one of the most powerful In
tellects In the Democratic narty, and
was unsurpassed as an orator, his
friends were confident that a Cabinet
position would be offered him. and they
wen divided on the Question as to
whether he should accept a portfolio or
remain in me senate, uui scarcely nad
the election taken place before he waa
on a bed of pain at his Washington
residence, losing strength and weight so
rapidly that physicians held out only
the smallest hope ot his recovery.
It was the Irony of Fate that Senator
Rayner should live to see the success
of his party and yet not enjoy any of
the fruits of It. Throughout his Illness
tie often raised a glass of water to
hla Una as he said, "to the continued
success of Democracy, gentlemen!'' His
mind was absorbed In the problems
which confronted his parly and could
not be drawn away from them. Until
the last four days of his life his mind
was clear and active. When he began
to sink Into coma the last hope of sav
ing his life had flown.
Born in Baltimore.
Senator Rayner for mam- years was
one of tho foremost public men of
Maryland. He was born In Baltimore.
April 11. 1850, hla parents being William
8. and Amolle R. Rayner. He gained
his education In the public schools ot
the Monumental City, and at the Uni
versity of Maryland und the University
of Virginia. At tho latter institution
he took the academic- and law courses,
and when he returned to Baltimore was
ndmltted to the bar In 1S70, and had
been practicing law In that city since
Within eight years after ho began his
career in Bultlmoro he was elected
to his first public ecrvlcc, serving In the
Maryland legislature for two years. In
that bodv he was chairman of the Ju

of the Baltimore city delegation. He

His great opportunity to distinguish

Reputation As Orator.
Senator Rayner achieved a reputa
tion when he was In the House as a
brilliant orator. Since he had been
In the Senate he had been fre
quently heard tn set speeches and In
debates and always acquitted himself
with credit. He was a maaterof Eng
lish and had a fine gift of sarcasm and
Invective. He was a great student of
the Constitution, and In an article pub
lished In a well-known weekly recently
It waa represented with considerable
truth that he would spring to tbo de
fense of the Constitution on the floor
of the Senate or anywhere else at the
slightest opening; He waa opposed In
many respects to the extension of Fed
eral authority, and on thla account and
for others he frequently attacked Col
onel Roosevelt and those of hla school
Senator Rayner's death will cause va
cancies on the Democratlo aide of many
Important Senate committees. He waa
chairman of the Committee on Indian
Depredations, and a member ot the
Committees on Civil Service, Education
and Labor, Expenditures In the Depart
ment of Justice, Foreign Relations,
Geological Survey, Industrial' Exposi
tions. Judiciary, and Transportation,
routes to the seaboard.
Had Able Legal Kind.
The committees 'In whose work he
most keenly delighted were Judiciary
and Foreign Relations. Senator Rayner
waa, wun reason, Known as one or me
finest lawyera In the Senate, and In
the clash of wlta among shrewd law
yera In the Judiciary Committee on hair
splitting points or constitutional law he
was at his best He waa well Informed
on foreign relations, and took deep In
terest In International questions. He
waa an authority on International law
as well as the law of this country. One
of his strong points waa hla remarkable
memory for citations from court de
cisions and taw authorities.
Had Senator Rayner lived he would
have held one of the Important chair
manships In the Senate after March 4.
Moreover, he would undoubtedly have
been a .power In the new Democratlo
regime. He waa strongly Inclined to be
progressive, and waa not on good terms,
because of hla progressive tendencies,
with the reactionary Democratic ma
chine of Maryland, of which Arthur Pua
Gorman, senior, used to be the head,
and of which Senator John Walter
Smith la the head now.
Senator Rayner waa Independent In
spirit, and was a believer In good gov
ernment rather than in the corrupt gov
ernment of the machine. That he would
have been a strong upholder ot the
Wilson administration Is undoubted.
Believed la Low Tariff.
Senator Rayner was a low tariff man.
He was not In alliance with those Sen
ateDeraocrata nhq are known, as pro
tection Democrata and who promise to
make trouble when the attempt Is made"
next spring to errect large reaucuons
In schedules. Senator Rayner In the
tariff debates In the Sixty-first and
Sixty-second Congresses stood for low
One ot the most earnest speeches Sen
ator Rayner had mado In the Benate In
recent months was In favor of-abrogating
the Russian treaty growing out of
Russia's refusal to extend protection to
American Jews having passports from
this country. Ha vbi thnranvhlv
aroused 'on thla matter and presented his
views in strong tasnion to tne senate.
Democrats' Control of
Senate Not Changed By
Senator Rayner's Death
The death, of Senator Rayner will not
prevent Democratic control of the Sen
ate after March i. The governor of
Maryland will appoint a Republican.
who Is expected to be William P. Jack
son, to succeed Senator Rayner. He
will hold until a year from the coming
winter, when the legislature will meet
However, the Democrata In the next
Senate will number forty-eight allow

and not taking account of Teim.u.a

certain to elect a Democrat, and at least
one Democrat will probably come from
Illinois.- This would give the Demo

Senator Curtis of Kansas who is the
Republican whip of the Senate, gave it
as. his opinion this afternoon that the
Democrats would control the Senate af
ter March 4 by from one to three votes.

aad the appointment of officers amd
agents, all said local public utilities.
"In thla manner, and by the means
In this bill set forth, the Individual
stockholders of the Independent local
public utilities are to be practically
eliminated and the Interests of the In
dividual stockholders In the property
and franchises of the said local utilities
will terminate and have terminated by
being converted Into an Interest tn the
property, and franchises of the said
Washington Utilities Company. '
Hard On Stockholders.
"Said Individual stockholders In said
local publlo utilities will no longer hold
local public utilities, nor have any voice
In the conduct of Its business thereof,
even though the form of declaring 'divi
dends by the said local public utilities
be carried out."
The Corporation Counsel alleges that
tn effect these stockholders In local
utility corporations will become unwill
ing stockholders of the foreign holding
corporation; that the earnings and
management of all the companies ac
quired will be "pooled." and that the
holding corporation will dictate and de
termine the management of the various
subsidiary concerns at the expense of
the public, the plaintiff and the stock
holders not joining therein.
"The aald foreign holding corpora
tion," continues the complaint "will
not be subject to ready control under
local law, and It waa organised for the
purpose of evading the laws of the
District of Columbia, and by such
evasion to acquire the aald Washington
Railway and Electric Company and Its
subsidiary companies In fraud of the
acts of Congress granting said compan-
lea limited franchlSM and ImDoalng Ob-
ligations on them which require their
corporate entitles to remain single. In
dependent, and unimpaired and uncon
trolled by such foreign corporation or
in its interest
Is Foreign Corporation.
As an Illustration of the Injury and
mha.rrassmenta which will ensue be
cause of the proposed merger, the bill
asserts that the District Commissioners
In contracting for public lighting and
the repairs on public highways, will be
compelled to deal with a foreign corpo
ration not properly amenable to tho
control of local laws.
It Is contended that the Washington
Utilities Company, a Virginia corpo
ration, haa no legal right to eaezclse
the proposed control of local public
utilities separately chartered, and "that
said attempted control br the means In
this bill set forth or by anv other
means. Is contrary to the Interest of
the plaintiff and contrary to nubile In
terest, and is Illegal and unlawful, and
should be restrained and enjoined."
Poorer Service Predicted.
That the Washington Railway and
Electric Company, and subsidiary com
panies will be less able to give proper.
sufficient, and adequate service to the
public; and that by such means and
control said companies have disabled
and will further disable themselves
from performing their public duties and

"That whether or not tne said foreign
holding company acquired the majority
stock Interest In the said Washington
Railway and Electric system In Its own
name or through the holdings of the
owners or controllers ot a majority
stock thereof and of Its own stock, the
act of acquiring by either method Is
Illegal and unlawful, beyond Its charter
powers, and against the public policy
of the District of Columbia, and the
said control Is In equity and In good
conscience wrongful and Illegal, and
wrongful and Illegal whether such stcck
transfers be made to the aald foreign
company or to Its stockholders and

"That the said Washington-Virginia
Railway Company should not be per

tended to be caused by the said Clar
ence P. King and William B. HIbbs and
their associates aa a part of their plan
to combine said local public utilities and
merge the same Into the aald Wash
ington Utilities Company, and that said
scheme Is unlawful and Illegal."
It Is also asserted In the bill that the
act of the Potomac Electric Power
Comnany without the consent of the
District Commissioners "In furnishing
electric current and power to the
Washington-Virginia Railway Company
and In conducting through stock con
trol or otherwise the Braddock Light

Cooking is a matter which con
cerns the whole family, and under
modern methods and conveniences
it is made so attractive the whole
family is becoming interested, if not
taking part in it.
''These biscuits are delicious; this cake is
excellent,' says the father. " I made them,"
says the daughter, and both father and
daughter beam with pleasure.
It is a crime, with our modem agencies,
helps and facilities, to have soggy biscuit, or
wooden cake, or leaden pastry.
Royal Baking Powder has made home
baking a success, a pleasure and a profit, and
the best cooking today the world over is
done with its aid.
