The body, however, h:ui been removed over nl.ibt to the .-'.eneral's private room and the hall was used for the regular Salvation Army services. The building was filled to its ca pacity, 2.0UH persons, at each of three services. Of the floral (ribtites mass ed upon the plalforin, (hose of tjueen Mother Alexandria and ICuiperor Wil li., in were the most nntcwoii hy. The l'.ritish and foreign flags ami the dec orations on the walls of the hall had not been removed. Tributes were paid to the dead evangelist in all (he non-coiiformlsl pulpits and in most of 1 lie pulpits of the established church today. ICulo gie.s also were made in Catholic churches. At .Nottingham. General P.ooth's birthplace, it special service was held in the WcKlcyan chapel, which the Salvationist attended in his youth. Hrlgadier General Wood and l'aslor lake will officiate at the funeral cer emony in Olympia hall, which will be of H remarkable character.

ITALIAN SHOT ON would the house concede the pay ment of any of these. Senate leaders were hopeful that the senate might be induced to yield on these claims. The state claim, which have aroused the resentment of the house, were all added to the general de ficiency bill in the senate. In the case of the Maryland claim of $72, Oiio and the Virginia claim of $120, 000 house conferees insist that the amounts now demanded by those sbf.Vs, as "loans" (hat were made to th,, government in 1 700 and 1 7 M I , actually were given to the govern ment as an inducement for the loca tion of the national capital in the present district of Columbia.. The Texas claim or $ 2 7 1 .6 93.r,9, is to reimburse the state for money spent from IST.S to tstil in "defense" of the Texas' frontier against Mexi can marauders and Indian depreda tions. The Oregon claim of $193,54 3.02, Is for the expense of raising volun teers for the Indian wars from lsti to 1X7. Senator I.a Foilette, by insisting upon a roll call on a motion de signed to dispatch the Penrose inves tigation resolution, threatened to block adjournment indefinitely. The loaders finally were forced (o sur render and allow consideration of the resolution. Senator Penrose immed iately proceeded to perfect the reso lution with amendments.

Governor Woodrow Wilson spent today at the I'nlverslty club, resting from a week of activity and preparing for a coti leience here tomorrow destined In have an important bearing on his presidential campaign. With Vice cbairmun McAdoo, and members of the campaign committee, the gover nor tomorrow will map out the sec tions of the country where he will speak and a schedule ol aouresses will be agreed upon. Present plans call for few speeches from the can didate himself, but a large number from William J. Ilryiin. Speaker Clark, Reprt sentativc I'nderwood, Governor Harmon, of Ohio; Governor Foss, of Massachusetts; Senator-elect James, of Kentucky, and scores o( members of congress. Though the governor's plan Is to make a number of speeches In some of the more important cities of the country, these speeches In no sense are to be a swing around the circle or a stumping tour, but it is admitted that the exigencies of the campaign may necessitate changes In the pro gram adopted. Mr. Ilryan has arranged his own itinerary, to begin about September loth. He will speak for the most part in the middle west, beginning, it Is said, In Nebraska and taking in Wis consin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Montana, Washington, Ore gon, Utah, Missouri, Illinois and Ohio. In these states Mr. liiyan will make, big stumping tours, but he also will devote as much lime as possible to stales east of the Mississippi river.. While Mr. liryan Is concentrating on the northwest and the middle wesl, Speaker Clark will lour the south- west. Alter his three speeches In J Maine next week, lie will proceed In Missouri, Colorado, New Alexico, Ari zona and California. The campaign committee's, idea was to have Mr. Clark visit those stales in which he thought he could be of the most value. He has chosen, therefore, those slul(s thai supported him at the lla Itlinore convention. Representative I'nderwood will speak for the most part In the east, and prohuhly will discuss cbielly the tariff. Governor Harmon will speak in the middle wesl and Governor Foss, who Is campaigning in Montana now, will fill a number of engagements outside of New Fug In ml.
