Hun toon, president of the First National bank and variously interested in other Moorhead and Clay county commercial and fiduciary institutions, was laid to rest in the family lot in Prairie Home cemetery yesterday afternoon. The services and committment of the body to the grave were witnessed by con siderably more than 2,000 people rep resenting the city of Moorhead and ("lay county, and among them were officials and members of boards who had been associated with Mr. Hun toon in the conduct, especially of the normal schools of the state. The simple but very impressive obsequies were conducted by Rev. H*. A. Kernen, pastor of the Congregation al church of Moorhead of which Mr. Huntoon was one of the most devot ed members and always a liberal sup porter of every work undertaken by the church and an active worker with in the ranks of state and national bodies of that denomination—he was always given to all good works. The service was conducted just within the vestibule to the home and was in the following order, the music being simply a few hymns, Newman's Lead, Kindly Light, Amid the En circling Gloom and How Strong and Sweet My Father's Care, by Murray, sung unaccompanied by a quartette, Mesdames Askegaard and Wheeler and Messrs Kantor and Perley.

The passing of Lew A. Huntoon, from this sphere of action, fills our hearts with grief and deep regret.

The musical part of the service was rendered by the quartette choir of the church which lead in the hymns and gave a splendid rendition of a Te Deum by Buck, and during the service Dr. Paul Verne con tribubted a solo. While the service was one of the most impressive ever held yj1'det the auspices of the schools of the city, there was a cloud of sorrow over it caused by another event earlier in the day, the funeral of Mr. Huntoon. a former superintendent and later a firm and fast friend of the public schools of the city and a donor of crold medals given t, stimulate different efficiencies. His kindly face was missed as for years he had made it a point to attend this annual service if he was in the city.

Six persons were killed by the shlv ered timbers or crushed to death by the falling bodies of their companions and friends. Fifty more were serious ly injured, while hysteria and paralys ing fright disabled scores of others. Subjects of Britain. A section of the auditorium went down with a crash and the debris from it added to the wreckage which fell on top of the injured and dead. The victims are subjects or former sub jects of Great Britain, resident in southern California. The dead were laid in the National Guard armory while the injured were hurried to the hospitals in this city and in Los Angeles. All doctors in the city were called and their efforts re inforced by surgeons and nurses who came from Los Angeles when appeals for aid were sent to that city. Victoria's Birthday. The accident occurred a few min utes before noon. The Empire parade, the principal feature of the celebra tion, in honor of the late Queen Vic toria's birthday anniversary, was just ended and the participants with thous ands of others were crowding up the steps of the pier and surging towards the auditorium when the pier floor sagged. An instant later the supports gave way and the crack and groan of breaking timbers were heard mingled with the shrieks and cries of the vic tJms as all went down into the mass of debris and writhing human forms on the sand. The cause of the crash is officially attributed to the over burdening of the pier caused by the fact that the audi torium had just been locked after a rpmber of people entered. This caus ed the crowd to surge while additional thousands crowded on the steps. Immediately after the accident the huge pile of wreckage marking the spot where the dead, and wounded Jay, was surrounded by a dense throng, which in anxiety to discover whether some loved one were included In the struggling mass of dying, overwhelm ed the comparatively few policemen and for some time rendered futile ev ery effort at rescue.

Jn the brief contest he exhibited better judgment of dis tance than his opponent and also put more steam into his blows. Pelky came here a comparative stranger to the fighting world. He was born at Chatham, Ont., twenty eight years ago, and commenced his ring career at the bottom eighteen months ago. Burns was the only man who ever got a decision over him. His opponents, prior to comine to Calgary, were largely second or third raters and Pelky arrived here with nothing but nerve and a punch which was backed by 205 pounds of bone and muscle. In his bout with Burns he showed noth ing but a left jab that Tommy had lit tle trouble in evadipg. In fact after the fight with Burns, Pelky was asked jocularly if he had no right hand Burns took hold of him before the bout with Andy Morris and in that engage ment he exhibited a very serviceable right hand but Burns had discovered it. Morris was knocked out and Pelky got a degree of assurance that helped him. Still working with Burns and Griffith the past month, he improved 500 per cent in foot work, shiftiness and ringcraft in general. Burns is managing him and, after the death of McCarty is probed and the responsi bilities proved, Pelky and Burns will probably go south to meet Gunboat Smith or any other promising heavy.

Lane Attacked Bill. Senator Lane made another attack upon the Indian appropriation bill when it was taken up by the senate committee. He charged that a man whom he didn't name—was already scheduled for the place on the com mission to make the roll of the Chip pewa Indians in Minnesota, and was formerly attorney for the lumber com pany which holds the contract upon which the commission will have to pass. "The fact that appropriations cover ing hundreds of thousands of dollars go masquerading about in a bill under misleading titles, would seem to indi cate the necessity for a reasonably careful scrutiny of other of its pro visions," said he.
