Wounded Passengers of the Empress of Ireland Also Landed and Rushed to Hos pital by Men of Royal Navy. QUEBEC, "May 3L The -whole of Quebec is mourning today for the dead of the Empress of Ireland. Body after body of men. -women, and cmldrcn, partly naked, and with stark, staring faces, was reverently carried from the decks of the government steamer Lady Grey to the government wharf by royal navy jackies today. The pier had been prepared to receive hern, and. while a great crowd of curious looked on in awe and dismay, the bodies were deposited temporarily In l-ing lines of boxes. Carpenters and undertakers had worked all night in preparation. Work of Identification. This afternoon the -work of identiflM Uon -will begin. Plans have already been made for a review of the bodies by those who may possibly identify thom. The landing of bodies and their dis position was accomplished, In the at mosT CjUlet. Except from an occasional cry of a bereaved one, the scene was. truly funereaI."Theblg,'cro4d did- not shove or clamor, but waited, many with set faces and others, -with tears, uutll tbe time came to view the dead. After the -early masses all of Quebec swarmed from the city down to the water front to -watch from there or from the bluffs the approach of tbe funeral. hip Lady Grey and her escort. The Canadian cruiser Essex, her flag at half mart, fell in behind the Lady Grey as convoy -when she left Rimouski late yesterday. A detail of 100 Jackies in uniform wa6 landed from the Essex to earry the bodies ashore. Though there -were no services this morning, the landing of tbe ships and bearing ashore of the bodies was made as solemn an occasion as possible. Heartrending scenes, such as those enacted at Rimouski yesterday, are ex pected again today when It comes time for the identification of bodies. At Ri mouski they were piled in tiers, and identification was almost impossible. To day each body will rest In a pine box, lth the belongings found on the body in view. There was a pitiful moment when the body of a woman, clasping a child to her breast, was brought ashore. For several moments the officials paused, and then by common understanding mother and child were placed in ope coffin, the child stil: clasped to its mothers breast. A cold cross that hung about the mother's neck was placed In view to aid in the Identifica tion Preparations Were Crude. Preparations for the reception of the bodies were necessarily crude, but thy were, made as rex-erent as pos sible The funeral pier is a long low one No. 27 In the series of Canadian Pacific wharves.

ATLANTIC CITY. X. J.. May 31. Former Judge Allen B. Endlcott. who addressed the graduating class of nurses at the Atlantic City Hospital said thli part of the present century will go down In history as the "decade of woman's folly." He criticised present-day dances. and those married women "who are not satisfied with dancing nearly all night but spend the days in such folly while their husbands are making mono to support them.'" After complimenting the young women who had taken up nursing as a profession Judge Endlcott told them that "while men are steadily going up in the moral plane, when graft and tbe evils of ten years ago are rapid 1 dit-appearing. woman has not kept pate with man "Take this craze foi dancing.' he continued. "Women are found In the arms of chauffeurs, cabmen, huck sters, and others who pose as "in structors' of the latest dances. Throughout the world men are civine un the habit of drinking.

M MEDIATION IS DOOMED, SAY MBKNK IF DELAY GIVES CAPITAL TO VILLA Huerta's -Envoys Suspect Good Faith of Americans in Demanding That Gar ranza's Representatives Be Allowed to Enter Niagara Falls Conferences Now. A. B. C. Diplomats Also Oppose Plan. By FRED S. FERGUSON. CLIFTON HOTEL, NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, May 3i. With the'meeting of the A. B. C mediators and the American delegates tomorrow, a crisis may be reached -in the negotiation looking toward the pacification of Mex ico in the conferences in progress here, in so far as the Carranzistas are concerned. ' The constitutionalist issue now overshadows air others. It is understood that Washington is bringing every pressure to bear to obtain representation for the consti tutionalists in the mediation conferences. So far, the mediators are firm in their decision that a representative of General Carranza shall not be received. Justice Lamar -and Frederick W. Lehmann went to church this morning. The justice appears tired, worn, and worried. At noon General Del Rio and Pedro Villar, two lieutenants of Felix Diaz, arrived-at 'the Clifton Hotel f n m Toronto. They sent up their cards to Luis Rodriguez, and, withjhe.constitutfonalists. tax:ldhg loudly atthedoor of the-conferences, jt was believed- the- Diaz faction may bcr expected to keep in close touch with the negotiations from now on. There was apparent uneasiness in the Mexican dele gations today. They remained aloof in the lobby of the Clifton in earnest conversation, or went for long walks in the park. In addition to feeling that any great delay caused by the constitutionalist issue might arouse senti ment against continuing negotiations here among Mex icans, it is said the Mexican delegates are inclined to fear that the United States may not be acting in good faith, FEAR DELAY WILL AID REBELS. TWO M'LEAN MOTOR CARS SldDINTO POLE One Towing Other, and Both Wrecked Two Chauffeurs Cut and Bruised. Two men were seriously injured on the Baltimore boulevard, half a mile from Borwyn. at 11 o'clock this morn ing, when a big automobile, owned by Edward B. McLean, which was towing another of the McLean cars, skidded and ran Into a telephone pole. Thomas Murphj. one of Mr. McLean's drivers, was at the wheel. He waa thrown from the car, as was Harry Koehler, who occupied a seat with him. Both were severely bruised and were cut by flying glass. The first car "was almost completely wrecked, while the second machine was badly damaged. The men were taken to the home of Mrs. Cadwalder Woodvllle, a short distance from the scene of the accident, where medical treatment was given. Later they were brought to Washing ton. The automobiles were returning to Washington from Philadelphia, where Mr. and Mrs. McLean had been attend ing the horse show during the last week. The car driven by Koehler suffered motor trouble soon after striking the Baltimore boulevard, and was being towed by Murphy's car. The machines were traveling at a rapid clip when tho front one suddenly swerved, going Into the pole. Three Hundred Wreck Victims From Ford Plant DETflOIT. May 31. About 300 of the passengers on tho Empress of Ire land word booked from Detroit. Most of them were foreigners and former employes of the Ford o.Mtor Company, recently laid off because of the ap proaching slack season in the auto mobile trade. Som of them, unable to obtain other work, were returning perma nently to their own homes with their savings. Others were leaving for a vcUon. They have desired the greatest haste. Should proceedings here be so delayed that the rebels should reach Mexioc City and overthrow Huerta, they be lieve the mediation proceedings would be farcical. They axe inclined to loo. upon the raising -of the question to ad mit the constitutionalists as a direct play for time en the part of Generau Carranza and the United States. The mediators also have favoreo bringing negotiations to a close as soon as possible. They are wilting to go U any means to establish peace, but art reported to believe that negotiations, at they stood last week, had progressed too far to admit the constitutionalist! here and that it should rest -with "Wash ington to bring Carranza into line.
