fund, about SIOO,OOO a year, will be ex
pended by a board of 26 trustees, rep

nominations in the United States.
This gift is in addition to the $lO,-
000,000 foundation establishment by
Mr. Carnegie December 14, 1910, “to
hasten the abolition of international
war.” The announcement was made
at the close of a luncheon at Mr. Car

organized “the Church Peace Union,”
which will be incorporated under the
laws of New York State.
The income of the fund will be used

among the clergy to bring about the
annual observance of a “peace Sun

fulfilled its purposes, the trustees may
devote the income to other philan

SENATOR BACON’S
DEATIU SHOCK
To His Colleagues by the Unex
pected News.
GREAT LOSS TO PRESIDENT.
As Chairman Of the Foreign Affair#
Committee He Represented the
, President In Important Mat
ters Now Pending.
Washington, D. C.—Augustus Oc
tavius Bacon, United States senator
from Georgia for nearly 19 years andf
chairman of the Foreign Relations
Committee since the ascendancy of
the Democratic party March 4, 1915,
died in a hospital here after an illness
of ten days. He was the first United 1
States senator elected by direct vote
of the people under tbe Seventeenth.
Constitutional Amendment.
Though Senator Bacoii had been
seriously ill with kidney trouble and
complications developing from a
broken rib, his death was unexpected.
The Immediate cause of the Sen
ator’s death was diagnosed as a blood
clot in the heart.
In the absence of Senator Hoke
Smith, of Georgia, Senator Overman
was notified and procedings in the,
Senate were abruptly halted when the
North Carolina Senator announced the
death. A brief resolution of respect!
was adopted and the Senate adjourned.!
The death of no member of either
branch of Congress in years is more
widely deplored than that of the senior
Senator from Georgia. His long serv
ice, his loyalty to the Democratic
party and his usefulness as the chair
man of one of the most powerful com
mittees of the Senate made his pass
ing felt with a keen sense of personal
loss at the ’White House, at the Capitol
and elsewhere throughout the city.
For 15 years the Georgian had been
a member of the Foreign Relations,
Committee. He had studied the prob
lems of that period as closely perhaps
as any man who sat in the Senate in
his time. And in his debates on the
floor he showed his clear insight into
the complications between the United
States and other governments.
It is for this reason, among others
that the Administration feels bereaved.
The Senate itself also is conscious of
a distinct loss. That body had no
more consistent defender of its dignity,
Its prerogatives, its functions than Sen
ator Bacon. One of his last con
troversies revolved around that very
matter. He demanded that Senators
be given precedence over members of
the Cabinet on all official occasions,,
on the theory that Senators are created
by the Constitution, whereas Cabinet
officials are mere creatures of Con-'
gress.
President Wilson’s Tribute.
Was iy. .- .lent
Wils jA heard of Senator Bacon’s death
ho"’was sitting at his typewriter. He
wrote the following statement on his
machine and issued it to the. press:
“All who knew Senator Bacon will
sincerely deplore his death. It de
prives the Senate of one of its oldest
and most experienced members, a man,
who held with something like rever
ence to the traditions of the great
body of which he was so long a part
and who sought in all that he did to
maintain its standards of statesman
ship and service. The great State of
Georgia will greatly miss her distin-i
guished son and servant. My own as
sociation with him had been of the
most cordial and, to me, helpful sort
I particularly profited by his experi
ence in foreign affairs.”
DR. ANNA SHAW BADLY INJURED.
