FUNERAL OF KING
Body of Edward Vil. Laid to
Rest at Windsor.
CITY OF LONDON THR0N6ED
Thousands Line Route of Sol
London, May 20.—The body of King
Edward VII. was carried through the
streets of the capital 'today in the
presence of many hundred thousand
subjects and with the kings of nine
European nations, several future rul
ers, members of all the royal families
of the world and a former president
of the United States following the
casket from Westminster hall to Pad
The cortege moved through solid
double lines of red coated soldiers,
standing with rifles reversed and the
regimental colors dipped to the
At the railway station the casket
was placed a funeral car and taken
to Windsor, where, after the Church
of England services had been con
ducted by the archbishop of Canter
bury in St George's chapel, it was en
tombed the Albert Memorial chapel
No such processional spectacle had
been witnessed in London since Queen
Victoria's jubilee. The parade in
cluded many of the greatest men of
the kingdom, with representatives of
all arms of the service and delega
tions from the most famous regiments
of the empire and representative
groups of foreign armies and navies.
Behind the casket, upon which rest
ed the imperial symbols, followed the
late king's charger, while his favorite
terrier was led by a Highland soldier
just before the imperial ensign.
Roosevelt Attracts Attention.
King George, Emperor William and
several other members of royalty
wore the uniforms of British gener
als. No personage in the parade at
tracted greater interest than did The
odore Roosevelt, the special ambassa
dor of the United States, whose civil
ian clothes contrasted curiously with
the gilded state coach with its white
wigged and silk stockinged flunkies
with which he rode.
The representatives of the two great
republics, the United States and
France, were given a position at the
rear of all the royalties and the prince
of the pettiest of European states.
Their carriages followed those carry
ing the royal ladies and they were the
last in the line of representatives of
The booming of minute guns and the
tolling of bells accompanied the move
ment of the procession, while the
bands in turn played the dead march
from "Saul" and Chopin's funeral
The morning was clear and a hot
sun beat upon the great mass of
humanity that lined the route of the
procession. It is doubtful that so
many people were ever before seen in
London. At the Mall, in St. James
street and at Hyde park the throng
almost overwhelmed the procession.
The police and soldiers had to fight to
prevent the lines being swept away by
the crush. There were many broken
limbs and other injuries were received.
Hundreds of persons fainted, among
them many women who had been
standing on the pavement for hours
before the procession left Westmin
NAVAL FIGHT IN NICARAGUA
Madriz Cruiser Venus Reported to
Have Sunk Estrada Gunboat.
Bluefields, Nicaragua, May 21.—A re
port received from Greytown tonight
says that the Madriz cruiser Venus
sank the Estrada gunboat Ometepe
off Punta Gorda late today. The crew
of the Ometepe numbered 100 men and
all are reported drowned or killed by
the fire from the Venus. When the
Venus was driven from Bluefields by
the United States gunboat Paducah
the Ometepe went in pursuit. The
Venus was ordered back to Bluefields
by Madriz and it is supposed then met
the Estrada boat.
The encounter between the two
boats is believed to have been acciden
tal, despite the fact that the Ometepe
started in pursuit. According to re
ports received here the plan was for
the Ometepe to keep the Madriz boat
in sight until the arrival of the steam
er Utstein from New Orleans, when
an atack on the Venus would be made.
DONATED MUCH TO CHARITY
Bank Official Pleads Guilty to Steal
Worcester, Mass., May 21.—After a
plea of guilty to an indictment charg
ing the larceny of $104,000 from the
South Bridge Savings bank and a sub
sequent recital of his disposal by
gifts to charity and to relatives and
by bad investments of a sum of money
which he estimated at $370,000, John
A. Hall, defaulting treasurer of the
bank, was sentenced to serve not less
than twelve nor more than fifteen
years in the state prison.
Although he kept no record Hall
said he estimated the total amount of
bis stealings At about -$370,404.
STORIES OF CLARA MORRIS.
An Incident That Brought the Well
Known Actress Fame.
Mrs. P. C. Harriott, known on the
stage as Clara Morris, the famous ac
tress of a generation ago, who is said
to be threatened with total blindness
at her home in Yonkers, N. Y., was
born in Toronto in 1849. She lived
there until she was three months old
and then wen! to Cleveland, O., and
grew up there. The following account
of her acquired fame is of timely in
When many years ago Augustin
Daly, the theatrical manager, put on
"Man and Wife" Fanny Davenport, of
course, took the leading role. After
rehearsing it until the day before pro
duction the imperious actress refused
to play the character of Ann Sylvester,
saying indignantly that it was un
worthy of her skill and reputation.
The manager was in a dilemma. His
announcements were made, his tickets
were sold, and the curtain was ready
to go up. Miss Davenport was de
cisive. She flounced out of the theater
and left Mr. Daly tearing his hair.
Then up spoke a maid of the chorus.
"If you please, Mr. Daly, I would like
to try that part."
"But," cried Daly, "you know noth
ing of the part. You have had no ex
perience. You have had no rehearsal."
"If you please, Mr. Daly, that makes
no difference. I am letter perfect in
the role, and I wouldn't act it like Miss
"You mean you couldn't," said the
"I mean I wouldn't," said the chorus
girl. ."I would act it in my own way."
"But Miss Davenport's way is my
way," said Daly.
"I know, but I can't see it in that
"Well," cried the manager desper
ately, "as Miss Davenport won't act
the part you may, and may heaven
have mercy on us all!"
Next night the chorus girl—for at
Daly's she was merely a walking lady
—gave her notion of Ann Sylvester.
Next morning the name of Clara Mor
ris was famous.
A few years ago when Miss Morris
was seriously ill and financial difficul
ties threatened to overwhelm her a
great wave of sympathy swept over
the country, bringing to her on its
crest hundreds of letters of regret, of
promises, of suggestions and affection.
Any one who has read Clara Morris
and remembers her sense of humor
can imagine what a well of joy this
selection from one of her letters must
have been to her. It came from North
Dakota and after a formal opening
And so I am very sorry for a lady to
be so sick—and you have been too quick
to give to other people, the papers say,
and most women won't give anybody
anything, and as my farm is paid for and
you ain't got no cumbrances, If you feel
like matrimony—why, so do I. I'm Swed
ish descent, steel gray eyes and gold color
hair. I weigh 180 pounds, and I guess you
could stand the climate.
Please write soon, for when seeding time
gets around I can't leave the farm. I
hope this meets your views, because
you're kind hearted, which most women
ain't. Respectfully, good lady,
KIPLING ON EDWARD VII.
"The Dead King" Reproaches the Eng
lish People For Their Behavior.
Rudyard Kipling recently published
a poem entitled "The Dead King," the
argument of which is summed up in
the line, "Our king asks nothing of
any man more than our king himself
has done." The concluding stanza is
We accepted his toil as our right none
spared, none excused him
When he was bowed by his burden his
rest was refused him.
We troubled his age with our weakness,
the blacker our shame
When he heard that his people had need
of him straightway he came.
As he received so he gave, nothing
grudged, naught denying,
Not e'en the last gasp of his breath when
he strove for us, dying.
For our sakes without question he put
from him all that he cherished.
Simply as any that served him he served,
and he perished.
All that kings covet was his, and he flung
it aside for us.
Simply as any that died in his service he
died for us.
The poet in an envoi bids him "who
in the realm today has choice of the
easy road or the hard to tread" and
"would sell his soul to remain in the
sun" to depart "nor look on our dead."
HYDE A SERIOUS STUDENT.
Doctor Convicted of Murdering Colonel
Swope Will Study While in Prison.
While Dr. B. Clark Hyde, who was
convicted at Kansas City, Mo., recent
ly of the murder of Colonel Thomas H.
Swope, is in jail he. is not going to
permit his medical mind to become
rusty. The other day the physician
had one of his attorneys bring him a
score of books from his office. He will
study them regularly each day, he
Professional associates of Dr. Hyde
are not surprised at his studying in
jail. He was known araong the physi
cians as a serious student and was
well abreast of the times in medicine
and surgery. It was largely in recog
nition of his ability, it is said, that he
was elected president of the Jackson
County Medical society last fall.
Long Run For Armed Automobiles.
The automobile gun detachment of
the Northwestern Military academy at
Highland Park, a north shore suburb
of Chicago, is arranging for a test run
of 3,000 miles from Cincinnati to Dal
las, Tex., between June 15 and Aug. 1.
The detachment is composed of auto
mobiles equipped with automatic rapid
fire guns all ready for action. The
test will be one of the first of the kind
made. Permission to cross the vari
ous states is now being secured.
GUILTY OF MURDER.
Dr. B. C. Hyde, Given Life
Sentence, and Mrs. Hyde.
JURY OUT EIGHTY-FOUR HOURS
Dr: Hyde Convicted of the Murder of
Kansas City, May 17.—Dr. B. C.
Hyde has been found guilty of mur
dering Colonel Thomas H. Swope. His
punishment was fixed at life imprison
"Oh, Clark/' cried Mrs. Hyde when
the verdict was read by Judge Lat
shaw. She threw her arms about his
neck and wept silently. Then she
patted her husband on the cheek.
Dr. Hyde sat motionless. He looked
firmly at Judge Latshaw while the
verdict was being read. As the words
"Imprisonment in the state peniten
tiary during his natural life" were
pronounced his gaze was fastened on
"Within ten minutes after the ver
dict had been returned the doctor was
on his way to his cell. Mrs. Hyde re
mained in the courtroom for some
time. She was extremely weak.

Every attorney in the case had given
up hope that the jury, which had been

SIXTEEN MEN KILLED
Battery of Seven Boilers at
Canton, a, Blows Up.
Canton, O, May 18.—With a roar
that was heard three miles away a
battery of seven boilers at the plant
of the American Sheet and Tin Plate
company exploded, killing sixteen men
and injuring thirty. Among the in
jured are a half dozen, who, it is said,
will probably die.
The body of Romane Boyer, Rou
manian ash hauler, was blown like a
cannon ball 700 feet from the plant
through the front of a residence, tear
ing clearly through both walls, through
the fence of an adjacent yard and
into the ground a furrow. It left
a trail of blood along the front wall
of the room and demolished a cot.
The larger part of one of the boil
ers, weighing several tons, was hurled
1,000 feet over the top of the building
fifty feet high into a field beyond.
A twisted steel bar dropped like a
bomb through the roof of a residence
300 feet away, tearing a bed to pieces.
The boiler room was demolished and
the larger part of the main plant
wrecked. The Canton plant, which
these men call the scrap heap, has
been alternately operated and closed
since its construction many years ago.
NOW ON WAY TO THE HAGUE
Counsel, Assistants and Witnesses in
New York, May 22.—The array of
special counsel, assistants, secretaries
and expert witnesses who are to ap
pear before the international arbitra
tion tribunal at The Hague in the
Newfoundland fisheries case sailed on
the liner Lapland for Amsterdam.
They will proceed to The Hague im
mediately, where the court convenes
on June 1.
The case, which is the first to be
heard under the general treaties of
arbitration negotiated by Secretary
Root under the recommendation of the
last Hague convention, is one of the
most important matters undertaken
by the United States. It involves the
entire fishing industry of the North
Atlantic, involving millions of dollars

Taking of Testimony in Ballin

No Indications of When Verdici
^N\\\ Be Returned.
Washington, May 21.—The investi
gation of the Ballinger-Pinchot con
troversy was brought to a close so far
as the introduction of oral testimony
is concerned and the case was set for
argument next Friday and Saturday.
Within fifteen days after the argument
counsel will submit brief and the com
mittee will then begin consideration
of the evidence looking to a final de
There is no indication as to when a
verdict in the case may be expected,
but it is generally assumed that the
committee will spend several weeks
on the record before reaching a de
cision and it is intimated that the
committee may not be ready to report
until the next session of congress. The
record comprises over 5,000 printed
In fixing the date for argument and
other matters incidental to the clos
ing of the case the committee was
unanimous for the first time since the
Attorney Vertrees, for Secretary Bal
linger informed the committee that he
did not care to present any argument,
as he did not regard it as essential,
but members of the committee stated
that they regarded argument by coun
sel as important and Mr. Vertrees ac
quiesced. Five hours will be occupied
by each side. Mr. Brandeis, represent
ing L. R. Glavis, and Mr. Pepper, rep
resenting Forester Gifford Pinchot,
will open on Friday, occupying the
major portion of their time. Mr. Ver
trees will follow on Saturday for Sec
retary Ballinger and Mr. Brandeis and
Mr. Pepper will then close briefly.
More Documentary Evidence.
Counsel for Pinchot reserved the
right to offer some documentary evi
dence relative to the charge' made by
Secretary Ballinger that the forestry
bureau had wasted over $700,000 in
administering the Menominee Indian
reservation in Wisconsin and other
documentary evidence of unimportant
character may be put in the record by
Mr. Brandeis and Mr. Vertrees. To
all practical purposes, however, the
case is closed.
After the final witness had been dis
charged Representative Graham
brought up the question of introduc
ing certain correspondence relative to
the charges filed against H. K. Love,
United States marshal for one of the
Alaskan districts, who was an impor
tant witness for the defense.
There was some objection and in
the discussion it developed that Love
had been charged with dividing prof
its from the feeding of federal prison
ers, had admitted the charge, but had
been excused by the department of
justice on the ground that what he
had done had been the usual practice
It was decided that the counsel and
committee should go over the docu
ments and decide later whether thej
should be put in the record. Mr. Gra
ham contended they should be admit
ted on the ground that they affected
the credibility of Love as a witness.
A letter from Secretary Ballinger
was read earlier in the day stating
that he had been unable to find any
further correspondence between him
self and George W. Perkins, as called
for by Mr. Brandeis.
BARRACKS ARE DESTROYED
Explosion Kills and Injures Many at
Pinar del Rio, Cuba.
Havana, May 20.—Two almost si
multaneous explosions of dynamite,
supposed to aggregate 3,000 pounds,
completely demolished the rural guard
barracks in the city of Pinar del Rio.
About thirty-five persons were killed
and twice that number injured.
Most of the dead were rural guards,
but tne entire families of several of
the officers of the rural guard were
killed also, as well as several em
ployes of the public works department
and residents of the city, on which fell
a deluge of masonry and xlehria jtrom
the wrecked building.
It is almost certain that the explo
sion resulted from the accidental fall
of a -case of dynamite from the hands
of an employe of the public works de
partment, who, with others, was load
ing upon wagons seventy-two cases
of the explosive, which was to be
transferred from the barracks to the
government magazine in this city.

Pittsburg, May 21.—After deliberat
