Mrs. Morse and Mrs. Curtis were among the early arrivals; Mrs. Morse first, accompanied by her stepsons. She greeted her husband affectionately and the two boys shook hands warmly with their father. Next came Mrs. Curtis. She threw her arms around her husband. kissed him and then sank into a seat beside Mrs. Morse and the boys. From that time the crowd gathered quickly until at 10 :30 o'clock there was not a vacant seat in the courtroom, and the corridors outside were filled. The lawyers for the defense had scarcely taken their places within the railing before court was formerly opened. Ex-Judge Olcott, who had represented Curtis in the trial, made a touching appeal for clemency on be half of his client. In this appeal he was given the active aid of District Attorney Stimson, who informed the court that he believed justice would be served by suspending sentence in the case of Curtis. After justifying the clemency for Curtis Judge Hough pro nounced the sentence upon Morse. "In the case of Morse there is not :nuch to be said,'' said Judge HIough. ''As hi all lank fraud cases, the crim inal legality is only part of a larger general scheme. In this case this was to tsst the bank and the depositors' money for speculative purposes. If such a scheme were permitted to be carried out, the public would be at the mercy of a band of adventurers. I therefore sentence you to 15 years in the federal prison at Atlanta, Ga.'' There had been a murmur of ap proval and a faint attempt at applause when sentence upon Curtis was sus pended by the court, but it was ;up pressed by the attendants. When the fate of Morse was pro nounced the courtroom was as still as a church and the first sound to break in on the quietness were the sobs of the prisoner's wife and the hurried shuffle of feet as she was led away to an ante-room. Morse followed her in charge of Marshal Henkel. A mo ment later the crowd began to move slowly out of the courtroom. Few of them left the building, however, and when Curtis came out of the building a free man with his wife leaning on his arm he was given a rousing cheer. patriot, who understood the values and the responsibilites of liberty and who loved Cuba with all his heart."'' The offices of Mr. Taft were dis mantled here today and will be es tablished at Hot Springs. While no official announcement has been made it is known upon reliable authority that Fred W. Carpenter, who has been Mr. Taft's secretary for many years, will be his secretary to the president, succeeding in chat position William Loeb, jr., who, it is also stated, may have the position of the secretary of the navy iii the Taft cabinet if he so desires.

SDuncan I. Cooper. Mr. Carmack was going north on Seventh avenue, in front of the flats, and Colonel Coop er and his son were approaching Sev enth avenue on Union street. Soon after thev came in sight of one another the shooting began, Robin Cooper, it is said, firing two shots and Senator Carmack one. Col. Cooper it is said, drew his pistol but did not fire. Senator Carmack fell to the gaound, dying instantly. Robin Cooper was shot in the right shoulder, but was not badly hurt. It is understood that the trouble is one of the results of a recent dem ocratic gubernatorial primary in which Carmack was defeated. Carmack had since he became editor of the Tenn esseean been quite caustic in critic ising what he called the democratic machine and had printed several editor ials about Colonel Cooper. Within the past few days, it is as serted, Colonel Cooper notified Car mack that those editorial criticisms must cease. This morning another ed itorial referring to Colonel Cooper appeared in the paper, and this is supposed to have been the immediate cause of the trouble. As Senator Carmack fell at the edge of the street Col. Duncan B. Cooper put his arm around Robin Cooper and both walked down Seventh avenue to Dr. R. G. Fort's office, zhere the slight wound in Robins's shoulder was examined and treated. An ambulance carried the body of Mr. Carmack to an under taking establishment. The pistol of Carmack, a 32 caliber, was lying at his side with two of the chambers empty when the body was picked up, and was turned over to an officer. The stump of a cigar Mr. Carmack had been smoking was also in the street beside him. Young Cooper was later carried to a hospital and Colonel Cooper is held at police headquarters. He has made no statement. Robin Cooper is a practicing attor ney, 27 years of age and single. Opposition Fades Away. Denver, Nov. 9.--Hearty applause was given President Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor by the delegates to the twenty-eighth annual convention of the organization at its opening session today, and also at the close of his report, which he read at the afternoon session, and was interpreted to indicate that there will be no effective opposition to his re election. "The statment that there will be a big fight in the convention in regard to the action taken by President Gom pers in the recent campaign will not be fulfilled," said John Mitchell, former president of the United Mine Workers of America and a delegate to the labor convention, today. "The action of Mr. Gompers was the result of instructions given him by the federation at previous conventions, and he will have practically the entire support of the present convention. "It is true there may be a fight on the question of allowing 'the federa tion to be brought into politics in the future, but I do not think Mr. Gom pers will be censured for the part he played in supporting Mr. Bryan." The reading of the reports of the president consumed more than three hours, and the reports of the secretary and treasurer were then read in ab breviated form. The secretary's re port showed that the federation had had a prosperous year. President Gompers' report was a long and exhaustive accounting of the work performed by the president dur ing the past year. At the outset he de clared "there must not be permitted to grow up or to be maintained a per manent army of unemployed." The part. of the report that touched on the Buck Stove and Range company injunction case was frequently inter rupted by applause. The statement of the stand taken by John Mitchell, Frank Morrison and Samuel Gompers on the injunction matter was also applauded. FOR RENT.-Furnished room with heat. Mrs. L. M. Hurst. 2t38p LAST OBSEQUIES FOR LATE MRS. HOLLECKER Tribute Paid to the Memory of the Deceased by a Vast Concourse of Sorrowing Friends. The last sad rites over the remains of the late Mrs. G. D. Hollecker took place at the family residence at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. When the time came for holding the ser vices the large house was crowded with the many friends of the deceas ed, come to pay last homage to the memory of one whose graceful life, with its myriad beauties, will ever be enshrined in their hearts. The simple and beautiful services were conducted by Bishop L. R. Brewer of the Episcopal church, as sisted by the Rev. E. N. English of St. Matthew's church of this city. Seldom has it fallen to the lot of any mortal in Glendive to have such a beautiful obituary uttered over their bier, as fell from " the lips of the aged but eloquent bishop, on this occasion when he was called upon to say the last words over a greatly loved member of the church. A quartet composed of J. H. Lane, J. A. Metcalf, Mrs. Cushing and Miss Mary Osborne rendered "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," "Rock of Ages" and "Theres a Blessed Home," the first being Mrs. Hollecker's favorite hymn. The pallbearers were all em ployes of the Hollecker department store. Following the services at the Hol lecker residence, the funeral cortege wended its way to the Glendive cemetery, where the remains were consigned to earth after a few words from Rev. Brewer. Despite the ex treme chill of the late autumn after noon, hundreds of friends followed the remains to the cemetery as a last token of respect. Under the overcast sky, it seemed that all Na ture mourned in sympathy with the sorrowing relatives and the people of the city and county, as the re mains were lowered into their last resting place on the bleak mesa which comprises the Glendive ceme tery. As a mark of respect for the de ceased and for the stricken family, practically all the business houses of Glendive were closed during the hours of the funeral. Mrs. George D. Hollecker came to Glendive with her husband and daughters, Jessie and Marie, some 15 years ago and had resided here BOYS MEET DEATH Clarence Kiichli, 17 years old, son of Joseph Kiichli, 1501 Dupont ave nue N and a friend, John Conredy of Chicago, were drowned yesterday while hunting in Pelican Lake, in Wright county. Joseph Kiichli, with the help of several farmers, recover ed the body of his son early today. The body of Conredy was recovered shortly after the accident occurred. Just how the accident occurred is not known, but friends think the boys accidently shot a hole in the boat. They were out on the lake when nearby residents heard two shots. They took the shots for sig nals of distress and ran to Edward Kiichli, elder brother of Clarence, who lives near the lake and who was asleep on the bank. They rowed to the place and found the upturned boat. Kiichli and the farmers at once be gan dragging the lake ahd a little later found Conredy's body. When Joseph Kiichli heard of his son's death, today, he obtained the police grappling hooks and went to the lake in an automobile.

Mrs. Hollecker took charge of it and had been in charge ever since. She was also a very prominent worker in the Ladies' Guild. The choir and Guild both sent beautiful floral offerings to the funeral, that of the choir being a large lyre and that of the Guild a wreath. A large and handsome cross was also pro minent among the wealth of other floral offerings. Both the Masons and the Dawson County Club sent pieces.
