Members of His Oi l Regiment Bore II is Body to the brave. Severe Weather Prevented G. A. R. Ceremonies at the Cem tery—The Pretldent-Klect One uf the Chief Mourners. By the Associated Press, Fremont. 0., Jan 20.—Taps have been sounded, the bugles blown tbe beautiful good night, the last salute fired and all that ia mortal of Rutherford B. Hayes Bleeps beneath a mantle of snow by the side of the devoted companion of hie life. ■The ceremonies of the day were such as befitted a typical American citizen, sol dier aud statesman. The simplicity of the republic ahone forth in bis life and waß marked in hisobsequies. No eulogy was said above him; tnat was left for the future to pronounce, and all who knew Uie man, father and statesman unite in saying it haa been wisely so. The pure, upright aud geDerous good deeda which drew so suddenly to a cloße Tuesday night, have nothing to feu-from the verdict of coming time. In aome reßpectß the occasion was one of the most notable in American history. The only remaining ex-president, soon again to a»»ume the mantle of responsi bility, stood beside tho bier of his dead friend and wept in sorrow for him. The two men bad some notable qualities in common, and of all public men few are more sincere mourners than Grover Clevelanu, who csme and went ■without ostentation. A great crowd had gathered at the depot awaiting his arrival, but tbe word wise y paßEtd arou.id by tho citizens'committee prevented any cheer ing or display there, and he left aa quietly as he came. Only serious threat of personal illness kept President Harrison away and hia regrets are as keen at his enforced ab sence as those expressed on every hand by the family, friends and ihe public. This wsb a city of mourning today; business waß suspended, schools were closed. The morning dawned bright as tbe unostentatious life of tbe illustrious dead. iv temperature during the morning light. Oaks about the family mansion at Spiegel grove shone in the sunshine, every twig with ita tracer? of frost looking like delicate wax The frost on the broad veranda was pictur esque and beautiful beyond description It seemed aa if even harsh winter had donned a charming robe in honor of the distinguiabed man whose remains were soon to be borne to the tomb. All forenoon thousands passed in procession through the chamber of death to view for the last time the well known features of the dead ex-presi dent. At 9 o'clock the schoolchildren of the city marched in a procession, with the national flig at their head, past the bier, followed by the civic so cieties of Fremont. Everything in the wide, sunny dining room in Which the remains lay waa in keeping with the simple life of the departed statesman. The plain cedar casket, covered with black cloth, rested iv the center of the room. The silver plate on the lid simply bore the inscription: "Ruther ford B. Hayes, died January 17, 1893." On his breast rested the decoration of the enumauder-in-chief of the Loyal Ls gion, aud on the left lapel of his dress coat waß the decoration of the army of West Virginia. Across the window seat in the south end of the room stretched a large American flair, held in place by branches of white and yellow rosea auu wreatbß of heliotrope. Two rooms of *he mansion were rilled with a distinguished company when the simple service for the dead president began at 2 o'clonk this afternoon. They inelnd-d President-elect Grover Cleve land, members of President Harrison's cabinet, represenratives of the United States senate and bouse, representatives ol the army and uavy, Governor M<:Kin ley and staff, members of the Ohio legis 'ature and other representative bodies and trends. In the front hall were grouped a double quartet under the leadership ot Professor Arthur of the Cleveland Con servatory of Music. A member of Gen eral Hayes' old legiment, R"V. J. L Albritton of the Fremont Methodist church, after a hymn had been sung reHd the 23 I Psalm, and was followed in prayer t.v R-v. Dr. Bashford, president of D-la»Hre college, who officiated at. the wedding of President Hayes 45 years ago. Atter another hymn the Lord's prayer waa repeated impressively, ami the si mule, solemn services at the houne »i r. over. The body-bearers, eight veterans of General Hayes' old Twenty third regi ment, lifted the remains and bore them fiom the mansion, and a long procession wound out through Spiegel grove, down Birchard avenue and out to Oakwood et m- iery, where, owing to the severity ol the weather, it wu» decided to dis pense with the G A. E ritual, co after a eimple benediction was pronounoed, the remains were consigned to their ael resting place. The honorary pall bearers were: Hon. Charles Foster, secretary of the treas ury ; Gov. William Mi Kinley. Hon.J.L Curry, ex minister to Spaiu; Senator Calvin 8. liri c, Major E B. Dawes, C'-n. Wagner Swayne, Gen. M. F. Force, Hon W. H. Haines.

His Arrest Causes Feeling in Paris Akin to Panic. lis Evidence Likely to Implicate Many Senators iv the Fauamt* Meal. More Light on the Scandal. By the Associated Press. Paris, Jan 20 —The topic of conver sation thia afternoon was the arreßt of Cornelius Herz The prospect of hie return to France and tbe possibility that he will reveal the evidence which he holds have excited general apprehen sion. Outside of Royalist and Social istic circleß the arrest ia regarded with feeling closely akin to panic. The gravest fears exist on account of the senate, whoso members are believed to he threatened more seriously than all othera through Heiz's return. Every body feels that the worßt will come out aB s;)on as Herz shall come before the examining magistrate. In view of Herz's capture the Liberte comes out with a statement that docu ments seized upon the premises occu pied by Herz show that Reinach was a debtor and Herz hie creditor, as affirmed by Heiz. There are three counts in the indict ment againat Oorneliuß H-rz The first concerns 600,000 francs received by him frnm Charles de Lesseps, the second 2.000,000 francs received t.y him from Karon de R-duach, the third a menacing letter written by him with the intention of blackmailing Baron de Reinach. The total number of Arton checks is now known to be 1010. Of this number probably them j ority are excluded from legal consideration by the statute of lim itation. The parliamentary commission »f inquiry m*y examine the stubs of these checks, but the judges are bound to ignore them. The most important checks in question, however.were drawn in 1887 and 1888 for the benefit of dep uties, theatrical beauties and other pro fessional persons, mostly women and newspaper men. The whole sum in volved by the stubs ia some 6.000,000 iranc3. _ f£L. ULX,a#.*B 7VTT. j; iv* r. The Culprit Is Very Kick and Will Keslst Extradition. London, Jan. 20 —Dr. Cornelius Herz was arrested at midnight on a demand of the French government, on the charge of having been fraudulently im plicated iv tbe Panama swindling and corruption. Tbe detectives assigaed to make the arrest went about their work very cautiously, ac, although it was re ported that Herz was sick, it was thought from his previous record, both in America and France, he might be shamming illness, and would take an opportunity to escape. I' waa known that Herz was at the Tankerville hotel, Bournemouth. Arriving there, the de tectives were informed that. Herz was too ill to be seen, but they insisted and followed the porter to the door. Mrs. lietz responded to the knock and after some parley tbe detectives an nounced their official character and insisted on being admitted to tbe outer room, Mrs. Herz retiring to her husband's sleeping apartment She came out in a Jew moments. Her faca showed eignsof great agitation. She could hardly restrain her tears as she said: "Geutlemen. Dr. Herz is too ill to get up. You are welcome to go in and see for yourselves." The detectives entered the sleeping room. Hera was in bed. He had just been propped up with pillows by his wife. His face looked pala and wasted ; his eyes were sunken, and he bore every sign of being a very aick man. "I know your business, gentlemen." he said, in went tone", as if it was diftienl for him to talk. "You Bee my condition ; I am willing to go with you if it is possible for me to he m .ved " The detectives looked at the man an 1 concluded it would not be proper to take further action without medical advice. The doctor who had been attending Herz was called in. He declared that Herz was in euch a serious condition hat he could only he removed at immi nent, peril of hia life, aud from present, sppearancep it would be impupsihle to rem ye bun for suras time The de tectlVCS telegraphed this statement to London 1 hey were told to remain with the prisoner, bur. take no action t' -' ard hia removal without further in »i ructions The detectives took turns at watching, one remaining near the ick man, while the other fouud what res' he could within easy call Herz. . otwithstandiug his illness, has made energei c preparations to contest thetffort to extrad te him to France. He has retained Mr Lewis, a well known solicitor, and Sir Edward Clarke and Mr Gill are counsel in the case. S one surprise is expressed that Herz should now prepare to contest extradi tion to the last point, when before his arrest he professed his readiness to sur render. HERZ INTERVIEWED.

Herz added that he took Menabrea's own »nn into his emp'm ment at asalary of 1000 francs a m tnth and spared neither pains nor money to gain Mena brea over to the side of France.

Amlrieux Throws More Light on the Panama Ncaud*l Paris, Jan 20.—Before the parlia mentary commission of inquiry today, Andrieux waß called upon to throw more light upon the bribery of 104 dep uties. He eaid he did not have the original of the photographed lißt which he submitted to the com mission. The name cut out of the list, he said, was that of a high political dig niiary. He promised on his honor not to reveal tbe name, and he must persist in bis refusal. He refused also to give the names mentioned in M. Arton's notebonk, on the ground that there was not sufficient evidence against tbe men, and he did not wiah to blacken their reputation ruthlessly. As to the check endorsed by M Ba vourat. a clerk, presumably as agent f t some high personage, VI. Audreiux ssid he could only refer the commission to the speech of M Ronvier in tbe cham ber on his retirement from the ministry of finance. Reverting to the De Reinach docu ments, M. Andrieux Baid ne obtained memoranda aB to the Thieree coecke f.om Corneliuß Herz, who received them from Reinach. Andrieux did not know thaL Jieinach. -hart, ahuwa the rnemotiKaa to umixieinreira, *mrt -nwinto himself once shown them to Clemen ceati. Herz, afterward quarreling with Reinach, had sent to M Conatsns, then minister of the interior, documents ahowing that Reinach tried to Doison him. Subsequently, however, Reinach and Eferz were reconciled. As to the checks mentioned in Arton's note book, Arton alone could give the desired in formation. Arton was at present in correspondence with several men in Paris, uotably with the Boulangist dep uties, George La Guerre and Terrail Mermeiux. On tbe strength of M. Andrieux'e testimony the commission decided to summon Deputies Li Guerre and Terroil vlermeiux and Clemenceau to appear before them tomorrow Hired to Poison Herz. Paris Jan 20—M Andrieux fold the parliamentary commission tudav that some years ago he received from Brazil a letter signed "Amal," in which Barou de Reinach was ccused of having hired the writer to poison Corn<"ius Herz.

By the Associated Pre's Sackamisnto, Jan 2i) —Spanker Gould has received a letter troai a wanky Pop ulist in San Franc: ••» stating that a member of the pat has left there for Sacramento with the avowed intention of murdering Assemblyman Kerns. Gould admits that he haa received such a letter, but refuses to talk about it. The letter was Bigned by a woman, it is claimed, but Gould refuses to give the name. The chief of police of Sacramen to has been notified, and, if the letter is genu ne. measures will betaken to ferret out the matter. In the meantime Kerns will be protected THE BRETZ INQUIRY. No Evidence Produced That Kerns Acted Dlshouorably. Sacramento, Jan. 20—The special committee investigating the charge of corruption in connection with the elec tion of a United Statea gene.tor held a session this morning. Thomas 0. Cator, Populist candidate for senator, waß Bummoned, but said he bad nothing to cay. B. W. Batchellor, chairman oi the county committee of the People's party of Los Angelea, testified that ie was the impression in Los Angeles last Monday that Kerns would vote for White, and he came to Sacrameoto Tuesday to urge Kernß and Cannon to stand firm with the Populists. Bret!! stated he had promised his 6on ststuents to vote for a Democrat when the hope of electing a Populist failed. He refused to retract his charges against Kernß Assemblyman Adams testified that Kerns promised hia vote for Cator for one day A number of other witnesses were ex amined rs to tire agrHPraents hovr they [ would vote. The general understanding was that tbe Populists should vote for Cator until released by the caucus Assemblyman Jacobsen of Fresno, testified tba' he had been approached by certain Democratpj to vote for White. Patronage had been intimated in a gen eral way, but no direct oilers were made. Recess. Assemblyman Thomas of Santa Clara, another Populist, understood that mem bers had no right to withdraw from their allegiance without the consent of the caucus. An ex-state treasurer, whom witness named, had offered that if appointed superintendent ot the Pan Francisco mint he would remember aome friends of witness, if the latter would vote for a Democratic senator. Thepeison in question had not given the source of his authority to make pro mises. Assemblyman Barlow of San Luis Ooispo, a straight-out Populist, said he pleaded with Kerns, prior to the final ballot, to cast one vote for Cator, but Kuns said it was too late. Replying to questions of Vann, the Popu ist member of the committee, Bar.ow said the reaaon why tbe pledge was drawn up was purposely to find if there was a Populist who preferred the Democratic party to bis own. Tbe first suggestion oi this pledge he heard from Vann. Kerne was recalled and questioned by Cator as to what conversations he had with Cannon about patronage. Hei it ,1 Cannon thou* lit he would have a better standing if White watt elected. Cannon mentioned no specific office, of which he wouid have the disposal When Cannon announced to him that (ioucher was ab sent and would not vote, be did not say witness mußt now vote for White. Wit ness toougtit on the contrary that his (Kerns') vote was not necessary. Secretary Biohrech of the Alameda Democratic county committee testified hat Breiz ca'led at couuty headqnarierß before the election and announced that hi« choice forsenator was Foote. Bretz had Baid he didn't helong to any party, as he had not voted for 20 years. Sub s-qnently the Democratic candidate for as-euihlvmau was withdrawn and Breti substituted. The contingency of the Populists placing a senatorial candidate in the field had not arisen at the time. Bretz took the stand in his own be half and said that before the election he had been promised by certain Demo crats that they wonld send him to con gress if he would "stand in with them." Bre'z said this would show that they didn't expect his vote absolutely. He hsd not agreed to vote with them abso lutely. He consid red it a greater wrung for one to betray his party when ! party lines were drawn than to offer his ! vo c for patronage considerations where party lines were not drawn The committee decided to defer far ther action until 7 p m. Monday, when tbe stenographer will furnish a full transcript of the testimony taken. WHITE SERENADED. San FranoUco rtem.iorata Honor tka Si ii ttol - Elect. San Fbancisco.
