It was an unprecedented honor that Liverpool paid the dead executive of the American metropolis, for never before had anyone lain in slate In the historic edi fice. Covered with the Stars and Stripes and with the British Union Jack draped over its foot, the casket rested o»i a cata falque brought here from Westminster Abbey, London, on which has reposed the bodies of many of England’s most famous men. It was last used at me funeral of [Field Marshal Lord Woolsey in St. Paul's cathedral last March. Candles in the great golden candelebra from Westminster Abbey cast a subdued light up the wide stairway and over the detail of picked men from the Liverpool police force, who stood guard all night about the catafalque. John Sutherland iJarmoud-Banner, lord mayor »; the city, who is absent on. vacation, had tele graphed the city officials to do everything in their powpr in honor of the dead mayor of New York, and they carried out their instructions In minute detail. (*reat Crowd Assembles When the steamer Baltic, on board of which Mayor Gaynor died at sea last Wednesday, docked at 8:30 o'clock this evening the landing stage was cleared of all persons except the holders of tickets. A great crowd had assembled outside the deck gates. As soon as the gang plank was run out Horace L. Washington, the United States consul, accompanied by a delegation from the White Star line, went aboard tHe ship. . In the saloon Mr. Washington met Rufus Guvnor, son of Mayor Gaynor, and expressed condolences on boh ah! of him self and the lord mayor of Liverpool. Mr. Guvnor readily assented to the plans of the Liverpool civic authorities . for the lying in state of his father. Act f ing on the request of Mr. Washington, the >ort authorities waived the formalities usual in the landing of the dead from vessels, and the body of Mayor Gaynor, in a plain wood coffin which was covered by an American flag, was brought ashore as soon as the first elass passengers had left the Baltic. Lone Mourner Follows Hearse The coffin was taken in charge by a .London undertaker, sent to Liverpool by the American embassy, and was placed in a hearse drawn by four horses, which was followed by the lord mayor’s carriage, oc cupied by Rufus Gaynor and Consul Washington. The funeral cortege escort ed by a squad of mounted police made its way through a dense crown of quiet peo ple, who uncovered as the hearse passed to the town hall. Tin* hearse was fol lowed on foot b> a woman in deep black, who had at her side a little girl.

When the coffin was placed on the catafalque one end of it was cov ered by a beautiful wreath of lilies of the valley, bearing the inscription, “Deepest Sympathy from the Lord Mayor and Citizens of Liverpool.” Another wreath, composed of Master lills, bore a card inscribed.

DMNliri CAUSE OR AS Engineers Talk to the New Haven Officials “TIME MUST BE MADE” — I “If Engineer Was Minute Late He Was Jacked lip”—Foss Attacks Both Corporations and Labor I'nions New Haven Conn., September 12;— An official committee of locomotive engineers j told the management of the New Haven j iabroad toda\ what they considered the! double with the road. "Too much pressure for. speed” is the crux of their presentation. The committee's statement in part fol lows: “Why docs not the New Haven go back to the miii lltions prior to the fall of 1911, without attempting these proposed radical • hangea In relations to their engineers? For eight years or thereabouts there was 'operated safety measures by the New . 1 Iavrtj._ Hi the lajl of. UM1 came a 1 ngc. What Caused Demoralization ‘•Henry I. Horn, general manager, or dered that engineers make time. ‘Time must be made' the order read. If an en gineer was a minute late lie was jacked up. The first time his engine ran by a signal not deal the engineer was sum marily dismissed. The ambition was to make a record of trains on time over any railroad in the country. Orders put out in Hie autumn of 1911 made New Haven travel unsafe and demoralized the esprit de corps.” New England discussed with interest to day a speech made by Governor Foss of Massachusetts at Worcester during the night In which he attacked the railroad situation vigorously. "The bankers and trunk lines that con trol the New England systems,” he said, "are tod a: Interlocked and in that inter locking there is no voice of New England. Tiie I’ujo committee at Washington has shown clearly that the financial interests in New York city are the central money power of this country. "These banks dominate the transporta tion system of all New England. I don't know of any section of the Enlted States where tlcir preponderance is so strongly or unitedly Interlocked. Attacks Labor Unions “On the other hand, the engineer of the locomotive should owe ids allegiance to the corporation and the corporation should protect him and I lie safeguards placed around him. But today, does the engineer in New England recognize any allegiance superior to that of Ids labor union? "Railroad men will tell you he does j not. The reason is perfectly patent. It is ids union that has multiplied his wages five fold beyond what the engineer on the European train, doing the same work, receives as compensation. "The engineers of New England, sub stantially all of whom are enrobed in one labor union, are able at any time to threaten a strike and paralyze the indus tries of New England in a day if their demands are not complied with. What can tlie railroad officials do? Yield to every demand of the engineers and deny most of the demands of unorganized labor at the foot of the ladder is the problem. ”1 denounce alike the foreign control of tiie New England corporation and the foreign control of the labor that eaptaina the Iron horses at the head of every pas senger train In New England.” President Wilson Sees Daughter Play In Masque Meriden, N. II., September 12.—President Wilson Silt In a grove of pine trees tonight and saw Ills youngest daughter, Ml ss Kleanor, play the star role In a postoral musque symbolizing the protest of Lhe naturalist against the slaughter of birds for millinery purposes. With a dramatic skill which surprised her closest friends, us it was her first attempt. Miss Wilson voiced In soft and appealing tones the spirit of the bird lover exhorting the hunter to forsake Ins rifle. The sharp crack of a gun followed by the sudden fall of "Ornls the Bird Spirit," Miss Wilson's role, marked the climax of the piece. Wounded and sobbing. ‘‘Ornls’’ is consoled by lhe fauns, poet, dryad and naturalist, who in the end dis suade the repentant plume hunter and make of him a bird lover. The President's daughter spoke her lines with careful In terpretation and was greatly applauded. The setting was both unique and pic turesque. Those in the audience com posed entirely of the artists, poets, play wright* and literary folk from Cornish anil the surrounding hills were costumed in vari-eolored gowns and cofats and sat on rough wooden benches fixed on a slope of a hill at the foot of which was the stage. This was marked by logs behind which colored footlights threw a shadowy light on tlie encircling pines. Bird whistles and the incidental strains of an orchestra concealed In the pines and an occasional dance by the players, lightened the piece, which was written by Percy MacKaye. As a prelude to the performance. Miss Margaret Wilson, oldest daughter of toe President, sang. “The Hermit Thrush” and at the.conclusion of the play Herbert Adams presented on behalf of the artists and members of the Meriden Bird club to Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, patron of the performance, a parchment scroll in dedi cation of the bird sanctuary where the play was given. Besides the President and Mrs Wilson the presidential party consisted of Miss Jessie Wilson, second daughter, her fiance. Francis B. Sayre and several house guests. Mrs. Herbert Adams, wife of the artist, slipped oil rough, ground and broke her left leg and dislocated an ankle just be fore the performance began.

Washington, September 12.—Demo cratic conferees of the Senate and the House made rapid progress today on the tariff bill, approving the earthen ware and glassware schedules with slight changes; the sugar schedule with its free sugar prevision and the date for tlie new rates extended lo March t, 1914; tlie tobacco schedule, ttie wood schedule and all Hie agricultural sched ules with the exception of the nroposed banana tax and the countervailing duty on wlieal. In tin- metal schedule the conferees struck the first snag and after several hours’ discussion the entire matter was passed over to be taken up later. Ma jority Leader Underwood and the other House conferees insisted that the Sen ate should recede from its action in placing ferro manganese, pig iron, steel ingots, slabs and bloom on the free list. They contend that too much rev enue is sacrificed and there is a grow ing opinion that the Senate conferees eventually will agree to small revenue duties on these articles. Uonirary to the general expectation,, little difficulty was encountered in the agricultural schedule, the House con ferees agreeing quickly to free CRt tle. However, the dispute on the coun tervailing duty on wheat is yet to be settled. As to tlie banana tax. it to gener ally known that the President's wishes should be stricken out. This would mean a loss in revenue of approximately two and a half million dollars. In all of the schedules slight changes were made, the Senate receding from amendments where decreases in rates were made. This policy, it is said, will be maintained throughout the confer ence. Mr. Underwood insted that too much revenue has been cut out of the bill. In the liquor schedule the general rates were approved but action on the proposal to put the full internal rev enue tax on brandies used in fortify ing sweet wines was deferred. In the earthenware schedule the Senate re i-eded from some of its amendments, | Increasing the rates on higher grad’es of | mica. MANY SPEECHES BY REPUBLICANS Hardwick of (Jeorgia Answers At tacks on Measure and Says He Will Vote for It Washington, September 12.—Progress nr tlie currency hill through the de bating stage in tlie House was marked today by vigorous republican attacks upon the way the measure was pre pared by the majority, and by a de fense from Representative Hardwick of Georgia, who though he declared ihe bill far from perfect and pointed jut what he considered Us defects, an nounced that In spite of all Its faults he expected to abide by the judgment if his party and vote for its passage. Speech making continued throughout the day and into a night session with most of the orators addressing a hand ful of members. in a general way reply to attacks .in the administration currency bill by the recent Chicago conference of bank ers. Representative Mulkley, democrat >f Ohio, began the House debate today, vigorously declaring that by mobiliz ing reserves In the federal reserve hanks as the bill proposes the evils which have caused currency panics would be avoided. An attack by the republicans elicited a defense from Representative Hard wick of Georgia, who at the same time criticised the provision making the fed eral reserve notes obligations of the government. He declared in ills opinion the bill would establish a titanic money trust. He said tlie democrats were going over to the Roosevelt ideals of public monopoly nowadays. Representative Platt of New York ac cused the majority of having annexed most of the Aldrich plan In framing the bill. "This bill before us," said he. "is none other than the much discussed Aldrich plan in disguise—so disguised as to make it seem to conform to the democratic platform and with the finan cial ideas of the distinguished Secre tary of State, who has won ills present exalted position by being always wrong on every currency question that came before the people up to this time." Representative Guernsey of Maine auid he feared the measure's effect upon small banks and upon mutual savings institutions, particularly in New England, and declared the pro vision that ail national banks become members of a reserve association would prove burdensome or possibly drive many banks out of business.

Case Discovered at Mar tinez by Dr. Long NOT AN EPIDEMIC An Appropriation of $40,000 Is Made to Fight the Scourge—To Attempt to Exterminate (iround Squir rel as Well as Rats Sacramento, Cal., September i 2.—A death from bubonic plague occurred yesterday at Martinez. Cal., according to reports received today by tue state board of health from Dr. J. D. Long of the United States 'Marine hospital service in San Francisco. At the same time a message was received by the board from its secretary, Dr. W. F Snow, now in Washington, D. c„ stat ing that the federal government had decided to appropriate $40,00'’* addi tional to fight the disease. \TU^ bQfli «f tile .Mcit'i.i./ V ! r l i 11;, whose name has been withheld, whs examined by Dr. D.

D. Long today. “The death there was purely sporadic. We had another case like it this year in San Benito county, where a Jap- j anese woman, a strawberry picker, died, j "Ever since bubonic plague first \ gained a foothold on this continent it has continued prevalent among rats and ground squirrels.

Campaign Against Squirrels The plague made its first appear ance in San Francisco prior to the earthquake and fire. It was stamped out after many months by the federal health authorities, who subjected the Chinatown and slums district of Sar Francisco to a thorough cleaning up. It having developed that rats were the principal medium of the contagious spread the government first turned its attention to ridding this city of the rodent and then began a systematic campaign against the rat’s country cousin, the common ground squirrel, which was found to be infected in por tions of the state. This warfare has never been abated in the districts where plague had made its appearance among the squirrels. Hundreds of thousands of the 1fttie animals have been slain. Bubonic plague has never obtained a real foothold in this country, according to the government experts, and Is never likely to, owing to the difference be tween the American mode of living and conditions in Oriental countries, whence it comes. All of the cases reported on this coast have been among Orientals, 1 or directly traceable to contact with ! them. • TODAY’S AGE-HERALD 1— Gaynor’s body lies in state at Liver pool.

The reso •lutlon probably will be passed Monday by tlie Senate. Wrole to Underwood •In view of the fact that the deficiency hill is still pending in tlie committee on appropriations for'the Senate and will not become a law until after tlie available appropriations have been exhausted, it is essential that there should he placed at the department’s disposal at once, a suf ficient sum to enable It to carry on the work of relief and prevent tlie hardship and dissatisfaction that u discontinuance ! of that work would entail. Besides the | obligations resting on this government, j under existing conditions, of effecting a \ safe and speedy means by which Ameri- | cans may leave Mexico and reach their homes in tin* I'nited States, there* are political reasons which render it of tin* highest importance that the work which is being carried on there should not be l,iought to a sudden stop.’ The resolution passdd unanimously, with tlie understanding that if further funds were needed the $100,00U appropriation in the urgent deficiency Hill for the same purpose would be allowed to stand.
