VOL. 30 BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, MONDAY, NOVEMBER ‘J3, 1903. NO. 203. HAIMNA WILL NOT RUN IF THERE IS CONTEST Intimate Friend nf the Sena tor Talks Will HOT DIVIDE THE VOTE He Feels That the Bitterness Engen dered by a Fight Would Most Likely Defeat Either Can date Nominated. BY WATTERSON STEALEY. Washington, D. C., November 22.—(Spe cial.)—Anent the visit of Mr. Charles E. Rapp of Kentucky here and his intimation that Hanna was stronger in Kentucky than the President, and also the many ex pressions from republicans favoring Mr. Hanna for President next year, perhaps one of the most intimate friends of the popular Ohio senator said today: "I absolutely know that there Is but one contingency that could arise which would induce Senator Hanna to accept the nomination, and that is this: if, when the convention meets, great opposition should arise against Roosevelt's nomina tion, and delegations from doubtful states should oppose him on the ground that he could not carry those states at the election and his own sta^p and New York should be divided or lukewarm in Ills support, and it became evident that the convention was disposed to put him aside for some other man whom it deems more available, I say that if such a con tingency as this should arise at the con vention and the nomination should bo offered to Senator Hanna, I believe he would accept it, but not otherwise. Could Not Afford Contest. "Senator Hanna knows that neither he 1 nor the republican party could afford to have a contest with Roosevelt for the nomination, for the bitterness sure to : be engendered by such a contest would most likely defeat either one nominated. "Mr. Hanna knows too well the power of the President and his strenuosity in public life to doubt what he would do to him if he defeated him in an open con test for the nomination. "I admit that Senator Hanna is an ex ceeding strong man with republicans ev erywhere. His mail is enormous and hundreds of republicans in New York have written him that he could carry its elec toral vote next year hut that it would not go for Roosevelt.” rUH I u KlUArio UUJtUI.

Sioux, Az tecs and Numerous Other Indian Tribes. New York. November 22.—In the pres- I ence of many representatives of the peo ple to whom she had devoted her life, the last rites were performed today dver the body of Mrs. Harriet Maxwell Converse, the “Great White Mother” of the six na tions of the great Iroquois confederacy. Eulogies were pronounced by the dead woman’s pastor and by the chiefs of the various clans of the Seneca nation, by whom Mrs. Converse was adopted when a little girl, and one of the chiefs per formed the ancient rite of "the passing of the horns” which consisted of taking the string of sacred wampum heads, the insignia of office, from the lid of the cas ket and presenting them to Joseph Kep pler, long associated with Mrs. Converse in her work amongst the Indians, by which Mr. Keppler was nominated by the chiefs present as the successor of the dead woman. Mr. Keppler was adopted by the Senecas many years ago and bears the name of Gy-Ont-Wa-Ka, or the “panther.” In addition to the delegates from the six nations, there were present represen tatives of the Hurons, Sioux, Abynki, Algonqulns, Aztecs of Mexico, and several other tribes.

Sill, of St. Chrysotoms’ chapel, the dead wo man's pastor, read the Episcopal services for the dead, after which William Crow, a Seneca warrior, made a brief address in his native tongue, lamenting the death of the “Great White Mother.” Seneca Warrior Speaks. In speaking, he addressed himself to the body before him. and in conclusion wished her happiness In the spirit land. Then turning to his tribesmen, he said: “We have lost our best and dearest friend. In the many gifts which the great spirit has given us, there came nothing so beautiful as this woman. She was the most beautiful of all our gifts. She knew us and understood us. She stood between us and those who would have wronged us. It will be a happy task now fn# the great spirit to make her a home in the happy land.” Chauncey Abrams, also a Seneca, act ing for Chief Corn Planter, lifted the "horns” from the casket and presenting them to Mr. Keppler informed him that he had been selected to take the great white mother's office. Then turning to the coffin he said: "I wish you, Gy-Ont-Wa-Ka, a safe .and happy journey to the spirit land." Keppler Accepts the Trust. Mr. Keppler, accepting the ancient "horns,” promised faithfully to adminis ter the trust imposed on him by his red brethren. Chief Corn Planter followed, wearing under his vest a red sash, the badge of the high priest of the Gon-oi-din religion. He expressed his grief in a few words of broken English. while tears streamed down his face, and then sat In his chair, buried his face in his hands and wept. Dark Face, a magnificent looking man with hair streaming below his broad shoulders, said: "I am not a Seneca, but I come of the Denikee tribe. I know the great white mother as every red man in this land knows her. She studied the Indians’ re ligion. It is founded on the true God. Our God touched this woman’s heart and she understood us. She was the angel of God. We may not have a Christ in our religion, but we have a mediator, and she was the great mediator between the whites and Indians. We see our God—we hear our God. We see Him in the trees, in the rivers, and even in a blade of ; grass, just as we hear him in the rustle of the leaves in our forests. Ours is the God of nature. She was a leader to us. She inspired us to better things. Wo i loved her and now she Is gone from us. j Rut while we are sad. it is f< I we are sad. not for her. because we i know she is happy. We are sad because we are left alone. I think ours is the sweetest of all religions.” Addresses were also made by Chief Longfellow, Morris Leigh and Carlos, an Aztec from Mexico.

The jury In the case of William Wise returned a veridct of not guilty yesterday morning, at 10 o'clock. Mr. Wise was re leased at once and spent the remainder of the day with his family, at his resi dence on Fourth avenue, where scores of | people called to extend congratulations. It is understood that there was little dissension among the Jurymen, and that they practically agreed upon the verdict of not guilty Saturday night, but decided not to formally present it to the court until yesterday morning. The jury was taken to the court house by the bailiffs at 9:30 o’clock, and almost immediately asked that Judge D. A. Greene be sent for. When Judge Greene arrived and took his seat at the bench, the defendant had i been brought over to the court room and j John T. Shugart and A. Deo Oberdorffer, i counsel for the defendant, and Solicitor \ H. P. Heflin were present. The court sent word to the jury to know if they ' had reached a verdict, or simply wanted further instructions. The answer was returned that a verdict had been reach ed. The Jurymen filed into the court room at 10:28. A Verdict Reached. "Gentlemen, have you reached a ver dict?" asked the court. "We have," answered the foreman. "Pass it to the clerk," said Judge Greene. Deputy Clerk Collins then read as fol I lows: "We, the jury, find the defendant not j guilty. Signed, W. G. Woods, foreman. As the verdict was announced, a slight rapping of applause began which was lm- ( mediately silenced by the court. There 1 were probably thirty spectators in the j room, who crowded around Mr. Wise to ; congratulate him. None of the immedi ate relatives of the defendant were pres ent, except William Delheim and Mr. J Oberdorffer, as it was hardly expected that a verdict would be brought in so early. Went to Jail to Get Hat. Mr. Wise left the court room surround ed by his friends and crossed over to the jail to get his hat which had been left there, and went from there to his home on Fourth avenue, where friends called throughout the day to offer their con- : gratulations. Numerous flowers were re- j celved during the afternoon and many 1 telegrams came from friends and rela- | tlves outside of the city. The porch of 1 the Wise residence was made a place for holding a sort of informal congratula tion party when he first reached home and there was a crowd of rejoicing friends about the house for some time. A. Wise, the father of William Wise, was on his way to the court house when the verdict was announced and he met the jurymen on the stairway in the court house. He spoke to Juryman B. F. Caf fey and told him he was sorry that he had met with such a misfortune while j he had been engaged in the case. Tears In Caffey's Eyes. This was the first Information Mr. Caf fey had had that his home had been burned while he was away and tears stood In his eyes as he went on down the street to seek his family In their new home. The Jurymen In the ease were discharg ed immediately after the verdict was an nounced and all of them were Jubilant to know that the case was finished and that they once more had their liberty. The Jury was made up of the follow ing: Fenton Burns, miner. H. J. Weiss, architectural contractor. J. A. Rollins, rolling mill employe. S. E. Jones, motorman. N. A. Pool, miner. James P.

Senators Want Special Session of Congress to Close Washington, November 22.—The senate will begin the week In a state of uncer- ; talnty as to whether a final adjournment | of the extra fcsslon will be secured dur ing the week, or the regular dally ses sions continued. A majority of the senators are anxious to bring the session to a close, and to j this end an agreement has been praeti- j tally entered Into for a vote December | IB on the. Cuban reciprocity bill. The acquiescence In the house of representa tives In tho programme, however, has not been secured, and, until the two houses reach an agreement, no definite i announcement can be made. Leading ■ senators, on the whole, are rather con fident that an adjournment will be brought about, and aay It will he impos sible to hold a quorum of either body after Thanksgiving. The present understanding Is that a ' proposition to fix a day for adjournment ! will he mpde by the senalo on Monday or Tuesday, whereupon It will he formal ly convoyed to the house. This will form a basis for negotiation, and thus far i there has been no conference between members of the two houses on the ad- i | journment of the session. Will Vote on Cuban Bill. The understanding In the senate Is that tho day for taking a vote on (he Cuban bill will be fixed without regard to tho adjournment of the extra session. Thu bill will be reported by Senator Cullom, chairman of the committeo on foreign relations, and he will ask that a day be fixed for the vote, whereupon December 18 wll> bo named, If tho present plan Is , carried out. When the republican senators secure j this agreement, they will be comparative- 1 I.v indifferent as to whether the senate remains In session or not. They think I it preferable that the extra session should ' come to a close, as many senators desire ! to visit their homes before the regular | session begins, but if an adjournment Is not had, there will be a general agree ment among senators which will render it unnecessary for a majority to remain In Washington, ir any considerable num ber of senators desire to meet for the purpose of making and listening to speeehes on the Cuban hill, they will he allowed that privilege with the under standing that no other business shall lie I taken up. If there are no speeches to he 1 mails, the senate will take frequent ad- 1 Jnurnments for three days at h time, as permitted by the constitution, without i reference to what the house may do. The House. There are a number of senators who de I si,'c to discuss the Cuban hill, but it Is probable the most of them will postpone their speeches until after tile beginning of I he tegular session, Decemlw A,'tip being reported tomorrow, the Cuban bill will lie on the table for a day unless there Is unanimous consent that its considera tion shall begin Immediately. The Colorado. Iowa. Texan and Florida ' senators, and probably some others, will ! make speeches Intended to show that the 1 enactment of the bill Into law will be in jurious to the sugar interests of the Cnited States, and contrary to the best public policy. In addition to receiving •he report on the Cuban bill, the senate probably will made it re-assignment of senators to committees tomorrow. The committees announcement is likely to no made the occasion for a speech by Sena tor Morgan, which Is anticipated with interest. In the make-up of the eornmlt ttes the Alabama, senator was displaced as Chairman on isthmian ranals. He hat been chairman since Its organization ahd has been Identified with canal legislation ever since he entered the senate, ft Is un derstood he will review his eonneellnn with this important work, and that In do ing so he will sharply criticise those op posing the Nicaraguan route. Want to Discuss Bill. The house will meet Tuesday. Having disposed of the Cuban bill, it has no bust- | ness before it, and unless an agreement Is effected by which the called session Is ! to be brought to an early close, an nd- i Journment probably will be taken until Friday, and then an adjournment until t Monday or Tuesday. It Is suggested that ! It is extremely doubtful If there will be a quorum Tuesday, and If the point of no quorum should be raised, it would he impossible to act on a concurrent reso lution providing for an adjournment, even should one be brought over from the sen ate. Some of the house leaders have express ed themselves In opposition to an adjourn ment before the Cuban bill sha'l have been disposed of. but what might be the result of a conference between the lead ers of the senate and the house on this proposition, remains to be seen. Tt 's possible that the speaker may he ready to announce the committee assignments at the opening of the regular session next month to proceed to business. Members of both sides of the house arc mindful of the conventions which are to be held next year, and the d* sire will be general to rush the work as fast ns pos sible. in order that the regular session may be brought to a close as curly as possible.

This is shown in a dispatch re ceived at the state department late last night from Minister Beaupre at Bogota. President Roosevelt, the United States congress and the people of the states aro ihe target for violent denunciations. The minister’s dispatch makes no reference as to the time when he intends to leave Bogota on the leave of absence granted by the state department.

The commissioners have nfl diplomatic functions whatsoever, said Dr. Herran. tonight, and whatever re port they may take hack to their own country will he made to the governor ol Bolivar only. Should the latter desire ta do so. he will transmit the information obtained to Bogota. The duration of th<* stay of the commissioners in Washing ton is not known.
