to THE HInALDJOn the 31th of July
the Tims of this city published in the edi
torial columns the record of the renowned
judge of the Third district for Idaho C H
Berry who was apponted to that position
by President Cleveland together with Hon
orable H W Weir and Honorable John L
Logan The two latter were bodily fired
for partisanship on the coming in of Presi
dent Harrison but the paper alleges that
Berry was retained after making promises
which more than satisfied the Repulicans
And the Time further stated that he had
gone to an adjoining county with Dubois
for election schemes and that he had be
come the tool of dear Freddie In the
July court the judge had informed the
Democratic lawyers there was nothing
else before the court that Monday morn
ning and these men left but not so with
the RepublicansThe scheme was on foot and
was then sprung United States Attorney
Fremont Wood and Clerk of the Court
Richardson being the only ones in the I
room then Mr Berry announced in this
open court that on the following Monday
he would appoint election supervisors bu
this business was kept a dead secret until
4 the following Saturday when the mater
nal leaked out On the following Mon
day James H Hawley read the law and
decisions to the court and showed wherein
that power was vested in the judge of the
Ninth district which is now composed of
California Nevada and Idaho and Fremont
Wood did not deny the matter but this dis
trict judge made the appointments anyhow
The Eagle Rock Time severely criticiset
the judge and seemed to hint that Berry va
not living up to the law as the inportant
position of a judge demands The
Time editorial closed as follows Bury
Berry and let the name be forgotten We
should not attempt to pull him down but
S a parting memorial exalt his name

This thrust was humiliating to Mr Borl
and he investigated the matter to see what
he could do in the way of a libel but things
did not float in his direction as anticipated
so a charge of contempt of court was mad
against the manager R C Bonney for
writing the editorial and a he of course
ivould try this kind of a case the result
would be in Berrys favor whether right
or wrong The papers were out for the
arrest of Mr Bouncy to appear before his
honor on September 25 but lo and behold
the bird had flown and when that day had
arrived the papers had not been served
Then a writ of attachment was gotten
out for his body dead or alive to

Construing the Favored Nation Doctrine I
WASHINGTON Oct HA dispatch from
London asserts that Spain cannot negotiate
reciprocity treaty with the United States
for the cotton trade without violating the
favored nation clause in existing treaties
with other nations I i said at
the department of state that this point
was finally decided in 1S34 when
Minister Foster negotiated a reciprocity
treaty and i now revived not by Spain
but by the commercial interests of Great
Britain for obvious purposes The United
States also has a favored nation clause
in most of her commercial treaties but
this will not embarrass the government
in the negotiation of reciprocity
treaties or arrangements with other
nations because the department of state
uniformly held favored the nations
clanse applies only where the privileges
are granted fully and without considera
tion but wherever special consideration is
made the condition of the favor granted or
received the favored nation clause does
not apply cause

Mrs Booth of the Salvation
Army 1 i Forever Laid
Was the Funeral in the Olympia and also
Impressive Strange Manner of
Conducting the Services
LONDON Oct 14By cable to the New
York lVorldNo woman ever had a more
curious funeral than Mrs General Booth
high priestess of the Salvation army The
services lasted two hours and it was from
first to last a singularly grotesque spec
I tacle full of carefully arranged theatrical
effects Still it was wonderfnlly impres
sive Mrs Booth herself before she died
prepared a liturgy All day long Salva
tionists from various parts of Great Brit
ian and Europe came pouring into London
and all the early morning trains were
loaded with them singing shouting and
praying in public after the manner of their
organizations At 3 oclock yesterday
afternoon 20000 of them were swarning
about the Olympia which next to the im
mense Machinery hall of the Paris exhibi
tion Js believed to contain the largest area
under a single roof Though the funeral
servicesdid not begin until 6 the doors were
thrown open at 4 oclock and by 580
oclock 15000 people mostly women were
seated in the immense auditorium
Everything inside was pretty much as
Barnums circus left it The mammoth
glass roof was decorated with gaudy
streamers the galleries were adorned witn
huge fans and umbrellas in gorgeous
colors catchpenny booths refreshment
bars inappropriate placards and numerous
other things that detracted from the solem
nity of the occasion were allowed to
remain Till within two minutes of 6
oclock the place had the appearance of a
country fair Men and women strolled
about hawking coffee buns sandwiches
and whiskey which were greedily pur
chased by the hungry and thirsty people
A brass band of GOO pieces played tune after
tune scarcely pausing for rest till the din
was deafening but promptly at one minute
of G all this changed as i by magic The
i doors were shut the refreshment bars
closed the hawkers suppressed and 15000
Salvationists fixed their eyes on a weak
looking little man with a baton who
mounted the dais just in front of the colos
sal brass band Ho lifted his baton and in
stantly every voice was hushed Promptly
at 6 the funeral services began by the band
playine the familiar church tune Rock
ingham At this point the dis
cipline of the Salvation army became ap
parent It was not possible for any single
human voice to be heard over even half
that building Barnum once tried to make
a speech there Those who were present
know what a ridiculous mess he made of it
The Salvationists made no such mistake
The man who directed the ceremonies never
spoke a word except to five men gathered
close around him These men hauled up I
huge painted signs which were worked on
pulleys They toll the people hundreds of
yards away quite out of the reach of human
voice when to sing and when to bow in
silent prayer when t rise and when to
kneel Everybcdy present had a printed
copy of the songs and words of the liturgy
corresponding with the directions on the
signs Everything moved like clockwork
The conductor had simply to lift his baton
and the vast audience was either hushed in
silence or singing in wonderful unison
After tie band played the tune Rock
in ham once through the entire audience
I rose and RHTirrn hymn tn thA camo tnno wit
words The terrific volume of sound seemed
as though would lift the roof After sev
eral prayers and hymns the funeral pro
cession entered the building By this time
the dense fog outside had penetrated the
I auditorium so that the chandeliers of elec
I tric lights in the roof were quite indistinct
and the funeral procession was half way
up the main aisle before the people on the
main platform knew it had started In the
front rank of the funeral procession were I
officers of the Salvationists from various I
parts of Great Britain who had been able
to reach London in time for the ceremonies
These were followed by men and women
bearing Salvation army flags the stars and
stripes union jack German and French
colors and the crescent from the orient
Almost every nation where the Salvation
army has gained a foothold was repre
sented by men and women in costumes
characteristic of their locality These peo
ple were picturesquely grouped on raised
platforms around the band There was a
pause for a moment and then a plain oak
collin came in sight borne by twelve men
dressed in red jerseys All the Salvation
women in the building sobbed and shrieked
Many of them were carried out in a dead
faint to the anterooms Mrs Booth had
insisted that her coffin should be as plain
as her Salvation army bonnet Immediately
following the coffin was General Booth
who walked with tottering steps and his
face hurried in his hands Over his shoulders
drooped the Salvation army flag which
hung over Mrs Booths bed when she
died This flag was immediately adjacent
to a large flag the stars and stripes which
was placed at tho foot of the coffin and was
held in position by a man who sat among
the chief mourners
This remarkable preference for our flag
was explained in the printed programme
that Mr and Mrs Ballington Booth who
bad been unable to get from America in
time for the funeral were thus represented
by our flag
After the coffin had been placed in posi
tion where the thousands of eyes could
look upon it and General Booth with his
family had taken places on the platform
the services proceeded Hymns were sung
and prayers said in perfect unison all pre
arranged by the woman who was lying
there in her coffin and all guided by the
men who worked the printed signs on pul
leyso Towards the end of the servicee the
fog became so dense in the building that
people 200 yards away could not see the
signs but there was no perceptible confu
sion at the conclusion of the services
General Booth and his children clustered
around the coffin and sang the identical
hymn which they sang around Mrs Booths
death bed This song was the signal for
thousands of sobbing women to rush for
the coffin and prostrate themselves in the
sawdust There was no sham about it It
was all hysteric devotion to the I
woman who was literally mother of their
army After the building was cleared
the coffin was removed and
coln pre
pared for interment today This will
afford an equally marvellous spectacle
Though the cemetery procession has been
limited solely to the officers it will be at
least two miles long Ranks will be formed
at 1 this morning Blackfriars bridge
along the Thames embankment to Chelsea
The procession will move through the
busiest parts of the city by the Mansion
house along Bishops ate street Sboreditch
to Abney Park cemetery which is in the
east end of the city
The Ceremonies at the Grave
LONDON Oct HThe remains of Mrs
Booth weretaken from the Olympia during
the night conveyed to the headquarters of
the army on Queen Victoria street Here
the coffin was placed upon a kind of gun
carriage on which were the deceaseds
bonnet and Bible When the procession
has been formed today the guncarriage
was drawn into position in line The mem
hers of the Booth family took their places
and the procession started from the em
bankment There were fifteen bands in
line All those who took part in the pro
cession were officers of the army privates
and friends not being allowed to march
Thousands of persons entered the cemetery
to vines the last rites The gloominess
of the scene was added to by the dense fog
which never lifted during the proceedings
When the procession entered the cemetery
the guncarriage was drawn beside the
open grave the coffin was removed by the
offlers of the army and lowered into the
earth General Booth stood at the head of
the grave and read the burial services
Officers of the army from various points of
