Chief Executive Adds Voice to
Praises Showered on His
i Former Assistant.
Distinguished Gathering of
Statesmen and Diplomats
Attends Eulogy in Capitol.
Solemn tribute to the memory of
James Schoolcraft Sherman, Vice
President of the United States, who
died at his home in Utica, N. Y., the
night of October 30, was paid by the
Senate this afternoon.
Uniting with the Senate in offering
testimonial of their esteem and af
fection to the memory of Mr. Sher
man was the most remarkable gath
ering of high officials, former offi
cials, and civilians that has ever
gathered in the Senate chamber on
the .occasion of a similar ceremony.
President Attend.
Included in the ll'st of officials were
President Taft, his secretary and
aides, and the Cabinet; the Supreme
Court of the United States, headed by
Chief Justice White, the officers of
the court and its retired members; the
House of Representatives and Speaker
Clark; former Senators, members
elect of both bouses, House and Sen
ate officials; the members of the
Dlolomatlc Corns, the Commissioners

In the Executive gallery, were the

They included Mrs. Sherman, her three
sons, Sberrlll, Richard, and Thomas M.

Sherrill Babcock. sister and brother of
Mrs. Sherman, id Mr. and Mrs. James
DeLong. the latter a sister of Mrs.
anerman. airs, laii, wiie 01 me i-resi
dent, was present.
Services Were Simple.
Save for the extraordinary nature of
the assemblage, the services were
marked by an extreme simplicity which
added to their lmpresslveness. More
over, nearly every man present knew
"Sunny Jim" personally and admired
him for his personal qualities. Even
men who had had stormy political dif
ferences with Sherman had a deep 11k
inr for him as a man. In consequence.
through all of the eulogies there ran
a note of deep personal sorrow for the
loss of the Vice President that could
not fall to move those who listened.
It added to the impresiveness of the
memorial services that the Senate cham
ber, in accordance with tradition, was
devoid of flowers, flags or drapings of
any sort. Senators and others on the
floor appeared attired In somber black.
The exceptions were the glittering uni
forms of the army and navy officers
and of the members of the Diplomatic
Corps, who appeared in full regalia.
The zowns of the women in the cal-
Jeries, too,' gave another touch of color
to the scene.
The Senate assembled at noon and
Senator Bacon, as President pro tem
pore, called the body to order. By
hie direction the secretary read the reso
lution setting apart today for exer
cises in commemoration of the "life,
character and public bervlce" of Vice
President Sherman. Nearly all mem
bers of the Senate were present.
Entry Of Mourners.
Then entered in order, the Spaker

headed by Chief Justice White, the Am
bassadors and Ministers of foreign
countries, the President and Cabinet,

"All bulldogs are dangerous," decid
ed the court. "They are considered
dangerous and must not be permitted
to run at large by the law."
"But Brutus isn't," insisted the crip
ple from his sea. "He Just forgot
himself. He must have or else the

only playing."

brought him into the courtroom the
disconsolate cripple was borne from
his seat to his rolling chair. Tears
wiled into his eyes ana he cried audi
bly as he left the court building.

by the events of the last twenty-four
hours. No confirmation of the resig

received by the State Department Re
ports were received from nrivate
sources stating that fighting had been
resumed in the Mexican capital, and
that President' Madero had definitely
Mated that he had not resigned and
that he had not Intention of so doing.
The determination of Madero to con
tinue the fight despite reduced re
sources may lead to a more aggravated
condition within the city, and may
result In a call for help from the
Georgia, which will arrive In Vera Cruz
The plight of the Madero forces de

President himself was exposed when -00

This was President Madero's- reply today to the ad

greater part of the night tryingto induce,him to give up his
position and allow the election of a new President.
After the customary hour for breakfast the, battle was
resumed. Diaz remained firm in his arsenal stronghold and
the federals were repulsed as rapidly as they advanced.
At 8 o'clock the cannonading had increased in fury.
Madero's men were using their utmost endeavors to dis
