William Booth, commander-in-chief of the Salvation Army, died at 10:30 o'clock tonight. He was born at Nottingham in 1829. The veteran Salvation Army leader was unconscious for 48 hours before his death. The medical bulletins had not revealed the seriousness of the general's condition, which for a week, it now is admitted, was hopeless. General Booth underwent an opera tion 12 weeks ago for the removal of a cataract from his left eye. For tv days after the operation, indications gave hope of his recovery. Septic poisoning then set in and from that time, with the exception of occasional rallies, the patient's health steadily declined. The general recognized that the end was near and often spoke of his work as being finished. Almost the last words of General Booth were uttered just before he lost consciousness. He was referring to God's promises and, speaking with great difficulty, said: "They are sure—they are sure—if you will only believe them." Throughout the commander-in-chief's illness, his son, Bramwell Booth, chief of staff of the army, and Mrs. Bram well Booth gave their unremitting at tentions to him. The aged evangelist died at his residence ,the Rockstone, Hadleywood, eight miles from London, where he had been confined to his bed since the operation. At the bedside when the end came were Mr. and Mrs. Bram well Booth and their daughter and son, Adjutant Catherine Booth and Sergeant Bernard Booth; the general's youngest daughter, Commissioner Mrs. Booth-Helberd, and Commissioner Howard, Colonel Kitching and Dr. Ward Law Milne. Public interest now centers in the question of a successor to the late commander. Under the constitution of the Salvation Army, the general nominates his successor. This General Booth did several years ago, placing the name in a sealed envelope, which was deposited with the Salvation Army's lawyer with instructions that it should not be opened until after his death. Though nobody knows what name the envelope contains, the general be lief in the army is that it will prove to be Bramwell Booth, who for 3 years has been its chief of staff. When General Booth will be buried has not been decided. While every English member of the Salvation Army is convinced that no man was more worthy of interment in Westminster Abbey, it is not expected this honor will be awarded to General Booth by the Abbey authorities. It is the gen eral belief that the commander-in chief's last resting place will be along side that of his wife, who 21 years ago was buried in Abney Park, Stoke Newington. William Booth was born at Notting ham, England, April 10, 1829, the eldest son of a building contractor. He was educated by a private theological tu tor of the Methodist New Connection church of London, and soon after his conversion, at the age of 16, he began to preach open-air sermons at Notting ham. In 1852 he entered the ministry, being appointed as traveling evangelist of the church in which he had been educated. In 1861 he resigned to take up evangelistic work of his own kind. He came to London and was struck by the destitute condition of the popu lation on the east side. In July, 1865, he began his special efforts in behalf of these people. The institution was known at first as the Christian mis sion, but by 1878 he had worked out the organization of the Salvation Army. By the end of the first quarter century of its history it had 7,558 so cieties, established in 49 countries and colonies, under 15,310 officers. In connection the general had organized a great system for the benefit of the submerged, starving, criminal and vi cious classes, including 15 social farms, 120 rescue homes, 58 work shops, shelters for accommodating 16, 718 people, and 169 food depots. In the 12 months preceding the twenty fifth anniversary there were supplied 7,891,663 meals. General Booth was married in 1855 to Catherine Mumford, who died i 1890. His supervision of the work took him repeatedly to all English-speaking lands. REV. WHITE REMAINS HERE ANOTHER YEAR ASSIGNMENT PLEASING TO CON GREGATION-BISHOP BREWER TO BE HERE SEPT. 8. Rev. E. L.

Mr. White greatly en joyed the conference. Bishop Brewer Coming. Bishop L. R. Brewer, of the Epis copal church, will conduct services at St. James' church Sunday, September 8. The bishop was at Stanford last Sunday and conducted the first Epis copal service ever held in that place. The service was held in the Presby terian church and the bishop was as sisted by Rev. Phillip Anshutz. It is announced that Rev. George Hirst, of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, will be here about Oct. 1 and become the rector of St. James' church, which has been without a rector since Rev. H. G. Wakefield removed to Virginia City last year. Baseball Chat. Toronto has recalled Catcher Curtis from Jersey City. Newark has released Pitcher Col gate to Guelph, of the Canadian league.
