ing the numerous protests by members
of the police force the annual police
parade was held here this afternoon.
The policemen never liked marching
In the annual parade and tried several
times to induce the commissioner of
police to abolish the annual parades,
but without success. Quite a number
of business men supported th6 pro
tests of the policemen on the ground
that the parade really meant nothing
arid not only interfered with the rou
tine work of the men on the day of
the parade, but also left large dis
tricts of the city practically unpro
tected for the entire day of the par
ade. Commissioner Bingham, how
ever, decided that there was merit in
the parade and that it should not be
given up. even at the risk of danger
from burglars and thieves in some of
the outlying districts of the city.
More than 5,000 men took part In
the parade and they were formed into
ten regiments of 500 men each. The
men had been drilled by Captain Dil
lon for the past few weeks and they
made a fine, military showing. They
marched from the battery north on
Broadway to the reviewing stand,
near the Worth monument. They
were reviewed by the mayor, police

Suits Aflai nst Louisville Saloon
Dismissed by Court.
Louisville, Ky., June 2.—In the po
lice court Judge McCann gave a writ
ten opinion holding that section 1303
of the Kentucky statutes, forbidding
the sale of intoxicating liquors on
Sunday was unconstitutional, but that
section 1321, providing for the general
observance of the Sabbath day, had
been held to be constitutional by the
court of appeals. Judge McCann
therefore dismissed all the warrants
against the saloonkeepers arrested
last Sunday. He holds that if the
prosecution wants to proceed against
the saloons it can be done under sec
tion 1321. The court holds that un
der section 1321 it Is unlawful to print
or sell newspapers on Sunday, to work
In a printing office on Sunday, to sell
cigars, tobacco, groceries or anything
else except absolute necessities.
Big Banquet to Be Held Tonight Aft?
er a Lapse.
Philadelphia, Pa., June 2.—After a
lapse of several years the members of
the Last Man's club, formed fifteen
years ago, chiefly among the members
of the Philadelphia club, will give one
of their famous dinners at the Hotel
Edouard tonight.
The Last Man's club was organized
with seventeen members, and it was
originally the intention of the club,
to hold a dinner every Easter Mon-!
day, but as the membership became
scattered in the course of time this
grew more and more difficult, .and sev
eral dinner dates were allowed to
lapse. At the first dinner of the cltlb
a massive silver candelabra with sev
enteen candles was placed upon the
table. At the base of each candle the
name' of one of the members was en
graved, with the understanding that,
upon his death, his candle should not
be lighted. The last survivor of the
organization would alt down to the
annual dinner with but one of the
candles burning. After that the can
delabra is to become his property. At
each of the dinners places are set for
the entire seventeen and the first
toasts are silent ones to those who
once occupied the vacant chairs,
At the last ciub dinner seven years

dinner were Alfred Biddie, on cure

ident authority to go outside the Unit
ed States to buy supplies for the Pan
ama canal in case bids in the United
States are extortionate and unreason
able, Senator Stone took the floor in
opposition to the resolution. He based
his opposition on the ground that it
was useless to pass it. "No one can
doubt," he said, "that the president
will buy practically all canal mater
ials In America no matter what the
difference In prices here and abroad
may be. If we are to judge the fu
ture by the past there Is no room for
questioning what course the president
will adopt. The men who contributed
the stupendous slush funds, aggregat

to carry the last three presidential
elections for the republican candi

grasp upon those who accepted their

"Aid from United States is abso
lutely essential."
The state department alsd has re
ceived a direct application jfrom. tht
governor of the state of Sonora, Mex.,
for help from the American side, a
most extraordinary occurrence.
The direct appeal was the subject
of hasty consultations today betweertj
Secretary of State Root, Chief of Staff
Brigadier General Bell, and the law
officers of the war department, In-as
much as the question of the right of
the United States to send troops Into
a friendly state is in doubt.
Meanwhile the officers of the gen
eral staff are making ready to execute
any order that may be issued as the
result of Secretary Root's decision.
Four troops of cavalry are at Fort

High Price of Coffins Malcai Taking
Off Expensive.
Chicago, June 2.—Coffinmakers are
fast rendering death a luxury in Chi
cago and the query is being eagerly
made, whether, if prices continue to
rise, Chicago will achieve still further
fame as a health resort by reason of a
marked decline in the death rate. Cof
fins are to cost 25 per cent more than
formerly, it is said, and word has al
ready gone out in New York to raise
the price to the trade. That the public
will be the ultimate sufferers Is admit
ted by the dealers.
The reasons given by the manufac
turers for advancing prices in the box
trade are multiple, and advance in de
sign is the last and least important. It
is also urged as an excuse for the
manufacture that prices of all woods
have advanced, while skilled labor Is
also, receiving more remuneration.

He Could 8how That Canfield'^ At
torney Was Negligent.
New York, June 2.—During the pro
gress of the hearing of the suit of
John Dalahunty, the attorney against
Richard Canfield, for counsel fees,
Canfleld's counsel stated that It might
be necessary to call District Attorney
Jerome as a witness for Canfield. Ac
cording to counsel, the district attor
ney sent a message to Delahunty,
Baying if Canfield would consent to
plead guilty to a charge of gambling
the district attorney would be satis
fied with a fine of $1,000. This mes
sage, It is claimed, was not communi
cated to Canfield by Delahunty. The
district attorney would be called to
prove that Delahunty had filled In th?

Navy Hasn't Enough Stuff for the
Annual Target Practice.
Washington, D. C., June 2.—Naval
officers are surprised to see the popu
lar interest they have awakened in the
scarcity of the ordnance supplies by
the letter presented by the chief of
ordnance of the service, Rear Ad
miral Mason. The letter was based
on the reports submitted from a large
number of sources, and is regarded by
those who know the situation as not
in the least too strenuously express
ed. It has been quite apparent that
the supply of ammunition was being
exhausted without the means of re
cuperation, and it Is already contem
plated to omit next summer's target
practice off the New England coast.
It becomes a question whether the
men should be trained at their guns
at the expense of the reserve supply
of powder and shell, or target prac
tice discontinued to the end that the
ship magazines may have ammunition
enough to meet an emergency. It will
nof be sufficient to the needs of a case
for congress to make an emergency
appropriation on the eve of trouble,
for it takes months to get the powder,
and nothing short of nine months'
time would be lost In obtaining am
munition which would be of any use.
It is a startling fact, also, that no
ship is able to fire her battery of big
guns for more than thirty minutes in
action, when the ammunition would
be exhausted. It is hoped by the naval
ordnance officers that the efnphatic
terms of Rear Admiral Mason's let
ter will have some effect upon the
senate naval committee and induce
congress to put back the

Ho Testified That the Killing of Van
Buskirk By Hazlett Was a Cold
Blooded Affairs—Good Cross-Exam
Forman, N. D., June 2.—Tfke feature
of the Hazlett murder trial yesterday
was the evidence of Fred Foamen, the
state's star witness. The whole day
was taken with the witness.
Foamen testified that he was
pying the building In Geneseo known
as the butcher shop, on March 1«, and
on that morning Van Buskirk came
to his place and that in about half an
hour Hazlett, the defendant, came in
the back door and then went to the
front room, where Foamen and Van
Buskirk were talking that Hazlett
had set his gun down by the door of
the first room and that when he saw
Van Buskirk he reached for the gun,
stepjied back Into the room and or
dered Van Buskirk to leave.
Van Buskirk then asked Foamen If
he had not rented the shop and If
he did not have a right to stay. Foa
men replied that he had. but that he
had |etter go, and said that he told
Buskirk to go because he saw
by Hazlett's face that there was
likely to be trouble. Van Buskirk then
said: "I will go," and started for the
door, when Hazlett punched him In
the chest with the shotgun and told
him to stand back, whereupon Van
Buskirk stepped back and tried to
brush the gun to one side.
Van Buskirk then said: "I will go
to Forman and have you arrested,"
and again started for the door, when
Hazlett raised the gun and shot him
through the heart.
Foamen related how he and Has
lett had made It up that they were to
tell the authorities It was done In seir
defense. The cross-examination failed
to shake him from the material points
of this story.
