Clemens (Mark Twain). New York City was the last stopping place in the dead author's last Jour ney, as bis body was brought here This morning from bis home at Red ding, Conn., where he died, to be taken to Elmira for burial. But It was here that the chief ex pression was to be found of the lov ing regard In which he was held by the American people. The Brick Presbyterian church at Fifth avenue and Thirty-seventh street was se lected for the funeral service this afternoon. Two close friends of Mr. Clemens were chosen to speak eulogies. They were Rev. Dr. Henry Van Dyke, professor of English lit erature, Princeton university, and Dr. Joseph Twltchell, of Hartford. In keeping with the known senti ments of Mr. Clemens the program Included no vocal music and no pall bearers. Two organ selections, brief prayers and the few words of eu logy constituted the service. Attending the services were repre sentatives from the Lotus and Auth ors and Players clubs, prominent publishers and <*ditors, eminent mem bers of the bench and bar and liter ary men and women of note. The Brick church was by no means large enough to accommodate those who desired to see for the last time the face of the beloved author. REDDING.

SAW LINCOLN SLAIN. Miss tourlay, Actress, Witness of Hrtyr's Iteatli, Returns. WASUNGTON, D. C„ April 23.— Having s«od as a young actress on the stage only a few feet from the spot when Lincoln was assassinated in Ford's Theatre on the night of April 14, 1 <65, Miss Jennie Gourlay, now a grayheaded woman, has re turned to N'ashington for the first time since t<at eventful night and | visited the apt where 4 5 years ago, almost to a dy, was enacted a na tion's tragedy. On the nigh, of Lincoln's death Miss Gourlay layed the part of Mary Trenehard , the drama, "Our American Cousin. I PARIS, April 23.—Theodore Roosevelt delivered his eagerly awaited lecture on "Citizenship in a Republic” in the Sorbonne this after noon. His audience was composed of all the members of the French cab inet, students selected from the Uni versity of Pairs, and many distin guished guests by whom the occa sion was regarded as the most im portant feature of the distinguished American’s visit to France. In the course of his address Mr. Roosevelt made reference to the sub ject of hnman rights and property rights. "My position as regards the monied interests,” said the former president, "can be put in a few words. In every civilized society property rights must be carefully guarded. Or- | dtnarlly, and in the great majority of cases, human rights and property rights are fundamental and in the long run identical, but when it clearly apepars that there is a real conflict between them, human rights must have the upper hand. Proper ty belongs to man, and not man to property.” Mr. Roosevelt spent the early part of the day in the old Latin quarter, across the Seine, which for centuries has been one of the intellectual cen ters of the world. At 1 this after noon, in his capacity as the foreign member of the French Institute, he attended a regular session of the academy of moral and political sci ences. At 3 o’clock he delivered his lecture in the grand amphitheatre of the Sorbonne, where he was most cordially received and his remarks followed with intense interest. PARIS, Aurll 23.—In his lecture today at The Sorbonne, Col. Roose velt spoke on individual citizenship in the republics of France and the United States. In part he said: "With you here, and with us in my own home, in the long run, suc cess or failure will be conditioned upon the way in which the average man, the average woman, does his or her duty, first in the ordinary, every day affairs of life, and next in those great occasional crises which call for , the heroic virtues. The average citi zen must be a good citizen if our republics are to succeed. The stream will not permanently rise higher than the main source; and the main source of national power and nation al greatness is found in the aver age citizenship of the nation. There fore it behooves us to do our best to see that the standard of average citizenship is kept high; and the average cannot be kept high unless the standard of the leaders is very much higher. "It is well if a large proportion of the leaders in any republic, in any democracy, are, as a matter of course, drawn from the classes rep resented in this audience today; but only provided that those classes possess the gifts of sympathy with plain people and of devotion to great ideals. You and those like you have received special advantages; you have all of you had the opportunity for mental training; many of you! have had leisure; most of you have had a chance for the enjoyment of, life far greater than comes to the majority of your fellows. To you and your kind much has been given, and from you much should be ex pected. "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiant ly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no ef fort without error and shortcom ing; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions: who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows In the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Shame on the man of cultivated taste who permits refinement to develop In a fastidious ness that unfits him for doing the rough work of a workaday world. Among the free people who govern themselves there is but a small field of usefulness open for the men of; cloistered life who shrink from con-1 tact with their fellows.

Woman, Planning Suicide, Paid Undertaker in Advance. JERSEY CITY, April 23 — Threatened with blindness, Mrs. Josephine A. Weldon decided last Friday to end her life. She went to an undertaker and paid him $69 for the cremation of the “body of a friend.” she said, “who was ill and probably would die.” Mrs. Weldon went to her room in a boarding house last night, placed a gas tube in her mouth and turned on the gas. Her body was found to day. She left a note to the under taker, leting him know that it was for the creamation of her own body that she had made arrangements. NEW YORK, April 23.—Albert Wolter, a youth of 19 years who gloated over lewd pictures and was “crazy” about women, must die in the electric chair for the murder of Ruth Wheeler. After one hour and fifty minutes of deliberation a Jury in the court of special sessions found him guilty of murder in the first degree at 10:30 o’clock tonight, bringing to a close a trial marked by its swift move ment and its testimony of horror. The boy’s counsel with eloquence declared that Wolter was too tender hearted to harm a cat, but twelve men decided tonight he had strangled Ruth Wheeler and thrust her while yet alive in his fire place, soaked with oil, where her crumpled body writh ed and burned. With the same wax face indiffer ence he had shown tnroughout the trial, Wolter listened to the verdict. | With almost inhuman complacency he had been found asleep in his cell whue the jury was deliberating. He will be sentenced Wednesday. ASKK $2.1,000 OF MRS. MILLER. NEW YORK, April 23.—Maurice B. Dean, a lawyer, filed suit today in the Supreme court again Mrs. Emma A.

Hhn Houlihan admitted that she did not nee Dr. Hyde administer | the capsule to Chrisman Swope on December 5th, the day the patient ' had his first convulsion. Practically all of the entries on the chart on which she kept the record of Chrisman Swope’s condition, were made at her convenience, from mem ory, she "eid. Today, however, she was unable to recall many facts about the pa tient’s illness without referring to her chart. She also said she had left her records at the Swope house when she left In December and did not see them again until she was called be fore the grand jury during March. Among new points brought out was that seven days after I)r. Hyde gave Miss Stella Swope a box of candy the young woman developed typhoid fever. The mention of the candy came as a surprise to Dr. Hyde, who was sitting tilted back in his chair, smilingly listening to the nurse’s testimony. He quckly mov ed over to his attorneys and entered into a conference with them. Mrs. iiyde soon joined the little group. For several minutes they talked earnestly. "It is a significant feature, but I cannot say Just what will develop from an investigation of It,” said Spe cial Prosecutor James A. Reed later. Attorneys for Hyde said they did not regard the testimony seriously. The death of Chrisman Swope and the illness of Margaret Swope were reviewed by Miss Houlihan. It was filled with striking utterances and vivid descrlptons that held the at tention of .^e spectators. At times her testimony was almost grewsome. In telling of Dr. Hyde’s actions, after Chrisman owope had died, lying crossways on a bed, she said: “Dr. Hyde grasped the dead man by the feet and turned him around in bed. "How did he do it?” asked Attor ney Reed. "Roughly,” she replied. In attempting to Imitate the moana of Chrisman and of Margaret Swope, the witness gave utterance to a weird cry of anguish like that of a suffer ing animal. Spectators, unaware ot her intention to make the sound, rose quickly from their seats, thinking some ill had befallen her.
