Thousands Flock to Piers of

to Watch in Silent Awe the
Work of Identification.
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
Work of Identification.

been made for a review of the bodies

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

Church Dedication
President, Accompanied by Miss Margaret Wilson,
Attends First Service of His Adopted Con
gregation in New Edifice at Avenue
of Presidents and Irving Street
President Wilson, Miss Margaret Wilson, and a con
gregation which taxed the capacity of the new edifice, at
tended the dedicatory services in the auditorium of the
Central Presbyterian Church, Avenue of the Presidents
and Irving street northwest, this morning at i-t o'clock.
Accompanied by his daughter, the President emerged
from the White House at 10:50 o'clock, and, waving his
hat to the throng of excursionists packed along the drive
in the White House grounds, stepped into his- automobile
and was whirled up the Avenue of the Presidents to the
new edifice. ,
large crowd was awaiting the coming of the Presi
dent as early as 10 o'clock. By 1 1 o'clock the sidewalks
near the building were packed. There was no demon
stration, however.
The Rev. James H. Taylor, pastor of
the church, preached the dedicatory ser
mon. He outlined the growth of the
church up to the present time.
The congregation has been worship
ing in the Sunday school room of the
building since the church at Third and
I streets northwest was sold last Feb
ruary. There was but little change from the
regular order observed in the Presi
dent's church at today's exercises. The

Wives Fail to Keep Pace With
Moral Uplift in Business
World, He Declares.
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. Big
corporations, and small ones, too, i
hac said thej will not employ men
who drink. But this movement Is
not gaining favor with womon. The
Presbyterian church last week found
it necessary to declare against the,
present mode of women's dress. '

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.
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,
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.

be farcical. They axe inclined to loo.
upon the raising -of the question to ad

The mediators also have favoreo

as possible. They are wilting to go U
