sisting San Francisco to obtain recog
nition from congress as the place for
the world's fair anJ shall waive all
demands for a federal appropriation
and exhibit; that San Francisco and

far as they can an equitable division
of any appropriation made by the
state legislature for the San Francisco
and San Diego expositions; that San
Francisco shall assist in obtaining a
government invitation to Mexico, Cen
tral and South Amcrif-a to exhibit at
the San l>i>go exposition, and that all

Collier announced that he would take
off his c-a t and assist San Francisco to
push throusrli a resolution at this ses
sion providing: for an invitation from
the pretident to the world to make ex
hibits at the San Francisco exposition.
The Two Expositions
Both sides are to work with the rail
road companies to secure equitable
rates to San Dippo during the exposi
tion season, 50 that visitors to Cali
fornia may s.ee both expositions with
out extra cost.
The San Francisco committee spent
the day interviewing: their friends in
and out of congress. They met tonight
nt a dinner at the Metropolitan club
Rivri by the governor and the commit
le« to the California congress delega
tion, the members of the senate and
house committees on industrial expo
sitions, and a few other prominent men.
Tomorrow morning the committee
will call on President, Taft and most of
them will leave Sunday for New York.
A hearing before the congress commit
tees is to be arranged if possible.
Spreading to the members of the San
Francisco dairy produce exchange, the
infection of the Panama-Pacific expo
sition fund will be carried to I«os An
geles and Santa Barbara today, when a
delegation of the organization will
travel south as the guests of the Los
Angeles produce exchange.
The trip had nothing to>do with the
exposition, being merely a courtesy on
the part of the Los Angeles business
men, but the San Franciscans, thorough
ly enthusiastic over . the forthcoming
fair, were not going to allow the oppor
tunity to pass without aiding the ex
position fund. Accordingly, when they
left yesterday, about 50 strong, they
carried with them badges of an ex
ceeding flossiness, on which was por
trayed a -motherly hen on a nest of egg 6,

1901, and was croismed in Westminster afcfcep August 9. 1902.
' Reigned 9 years 3 months and 14 days.
L LONDON, May 7.— Edward VII, king of Great Britain, died at 11:45
o'clock last night. , c
• The prince of Wales, assuming the title of George V, will- take
oath before the privy council at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Coming so suddenly, the death of the king can not but bring- the greatest
sorrow to the nation, in -whose hearts Edward, first as prince of Wales and
afterward as. sovereign, held first place.
Edward VI Fs short reign has been a history of stirring times. It opened
with the conclusion of peace after a long and trying campaign in South
Africa, and concludes at the crisis of one of the most momentous political
struggles of modern times between the peers and commons. In a day the
I political outlook of Great Britain has been revolutionized.
• Gathered around the bedside of the dying king were the queen and
princesses. No hope had been held out through the day for the recoTery of
his majesty, whose death, it is believed, was due to pneumonia, following
bronchitis, contracted shortly after his return from Biarritz. Only a day or
two ago the king was conducting the business of state and giving orders, bat
on Wednesday he was compelled to submit to physicians' orders. Since then
until; the end his decline was rapid. -
LONDON, May 7.— King Edward VII, who returned tc England from
a vacation 10 days ago in the best of health, died after an illness of less
than a week. He was seriously ill hardly more than three day*.
The prince of Wales succeeded to the throne immediately, according
to the laws of England, without official ceremony. His first omctal act, m
pursuance of custom, was to dispatch to the lord mayor the ansotmceixietit
of his father's death. His telegram read:
"I am deeply grieved to inform you that my beloved father, the Htrg,
passed away peacefully at 11:45 tonight. GEORGE."
The physicians soon afterward issued their official bulletin, which foQorcrs;
May 6, 11:50 p. m. — His majesty the king breathed his last at 11:45 to
night in the presence of her majesty Queen Alexandra, the prince and prin
cess of Wales, princess royal, the duchess of Fife, Princess Victoria, and
Princess Louise, the duchess of Argyll. !,,
\u25a0 Pneumonia, following bronchitis, is believed to have been the eatzse cf
.death, but the doctors thus far have refused to make a statement. Some of
the king's frfends are convinced that worry over the political situation aggra
vated if it did not cause the fatal illness.
Besides the few relatives in England, the duke of Fife and the arch
bishop of Canterbury were in the death chamber. The king's brother, the
duke of Connaught, with his family, is at Suez, hastening home from Africa.
The king's daughter, Queen Maud of Norway, will start for England to
morrow. ,
The intelligence- that the end of King / Edward's reign had come was
not a surprise at the last. The people had been expecting it any hour since
the evening bulletin was posted at Buckingham palace and flashed throngh^
out the kingdom. The capital received, it without excitement, but sadly, for '.
the king -with his own people was unquestionably one of the most popular
rulers in the world. They regarded him as one of the strongest forces
making for the stability of the peace of the -empire.
!§jf* The fashionable restaurants were just emptying and a few groups of late
theater goers were making their way homeward through the rain, while a
small crowd hung about" the palace, when the streets' were filled suddenly
with newsboys, shrilly crying, "Death of the king." The papers were quickly
seized, and .the people discussed the momentous event quietly and soon dis
persed. The streets .were deserted" by 1 o'clock.
' Within a few minutes after the death'of the king the home office was
telegraphing the intelligence to the heads of other governments and the
diplomats and colonial officials throughout the world.
V.; /All who : knew the king expected his death would be sudden, and it
would, not have occasioned surprise if it had occurred without warning
a,t*some social function, as a result of heart trouble. Almost to the end he £
refused: to -take to his bed,.and was sitting up yesterday in a large chair, so/ j
