TRIBUTE OF RESPECT FROM THE STATE
Governor Lind Issues a Proclamation Relative
to the Late Senator
Funeral Will Take Place Saturday Morning
—Distinguished Pallbearers arc
Selected
In recognition of the dealh of Senator
Davis, Gov. Lind yesterday paid a tribute
to his memory by issuing a proclamation
to the people of the state of Minnesota
announcing- the sad event, and calling
upon the citizens to refrain from their
ordinary labors between the hours cf
10 a. m. and 2 p. m. Saturday, as a trib
ute to the honored dead. The proclama
tion reads as follows.
"A citizen whose genial character
and comprehensive humanity have made
him beloved by all, whose learning and
culture have been an Inspiration to our
young men. anel whose services in public
life have endeared him to the people of
our state and nation, has passed away.
"Cushman K. Davis, senator of the
United States from the state of Min
nesota, died at his home in this c'ty
on Nov. 27, 1900. His remains will lie
in state in the governor's room at the
oapitol between the hours of 10 o'clock
a. m. and 3 o'clock p. m. on Friday,
Nov. 3vV The funeral will be held on the
day following.
"In honor of his distinguished services
to state and nation, and as an expression
of our grief, 1 earnestly call upon the
pecple of the state to appropriately pay
tribute to his memory on that day and
to refrain from the transaction of all
public business between the hours of 10
o'clock a. m. and 2 o'clock p. m. on Sat
urday, Dec. 1, 1900."
All day yesterday the- residence of the
deceased statesman was surrounded with
a vale of sadness incident only upon
such sorrowful events as death itself
can invite. The air of deep solemnity
was rendered even more character
istic by the fragrance of flowers which
profusely beset the front rooms. The
saddened home was quiet within and
without, and there was not that stream
of anxious and sympathetic friends that
had flowed into it for the past several
weeks eager to catch the first news of
a possible change for the better in the
condition of Senator Davis. . The circle
of stricken relatives, with an intimate
friend or two, were all that occupied
the lonely abode.
The lifeless form of the favorite son of
his state, the pride of a proud republic,
all that was mortal of the once bril
liant statesman, jurist and patriot, Cush
man K. Davis, occupied the chamber of
death uj> stairs. Beside this silent fig
ure all day and throughout the greater
part of lasi night remained the faithful
and devoted wife, whose heart was laden
almost beyond endurance with a grief
it had never before known. Alone with
il slumberer, Mrs. Davis, who
had been the constant companion of her
.stricken husband during all his illness,
Btayed. During the hours of her keen
est .sorrow, all hesitating to trespass
upon the sacredness of hr own personal
left her alone In that stilled cham
, ntering at intervals when she
d lli-Mr assistance or something else
required it
Although deeply suffering from her
severe trial Mr?:. Davis is showing phe
nomenal fortitude. She takes the most
active interest in hearing the telegrams
read that come in floods from promi
nent sources all over the world. Ev< ry
Eje Is tak< a Into the room where
she is and read to her. She comments
upon nearly every telegram as she hears
it read and then listens to the name of
the friend from whom it came. The
aged parents of the deceased statesman
have borne up remarkably for persons
of their advanced age.
GOV. LIND CATJ.ED.
Among ihe lew callers at the home yes
terday was Gov. John Lind, whose long

that the people of the stair desired to
honor the man in his death whom they
honored while active in lite, and to that
end he requested that the remains be
aliowed to rest in the governor'? ro -m
at the state house during a few hoii.s
tomorrow. The request was granted.

MANY AEE UNABLE TO ATTEND
Foreign Relations Committee of the
Senate Was Appointed, bnt Xot
All SUcmbcrs Could
Be Present. - .
WASHINGTON, Nov. 25.-It was the
expressed wish of Senator Frye, presi
dent pro tern of the senate, that* the com
mittee to attend the funeral of Senator
Davis should be composed of ihe com
mittee on foreign relations of which Sen.
ator Davis was chairman, and its mem
toers were appointed and notified ac
cordingly. But for various reasons sick
ness and otherwise, it was found that
only a few members of the committee
were able to attend and other senators
were substituted. The committee now
consists of Senators Nelson, Cullom
Clark, of Wyo.; Bacon, Hansbrough'
Spooner, Pettigrew, Carter and Foster
The two committees of the house and
senate, in charge of the sergeant-at-arms
of the senate, will leave at 8:30 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon arriving at St. Paul
Saturday morning at 7 o'clock. The
funeral occurs at 11 o'clock. The com
mittees will leave St. Paul at 8:15 Satur
day evening and arrive in Washington
at 1 o'clock Monday.
Speaker Henderson, of the house ot
representatives, today appointed the
members of the committee to attend, on
the part of the house, the funeral of'the
late Senator Davis, of Minnesota. The
committee includes the entire Minnesota
delegation, with Mr. Tawney as chair
man; Mr. Cannon, of Illinois; Mr. Grcs
venor, of Ohio; Mr. Moody, of Massa
chusetts; Mr. Jenkins, of Wisconsin; Mr.
W. A. Smith, of Michigan; Mr. Richard
son, of Tennessee; Mr. Bailey, of Texas;
Mr. Clark, of Missouri; Mr. Burke, of
Texas; Mr. Underwood, of Alabama..
Owing to toe near approach of the
convening of congress, many prominent
senators cannot attend the funeral of
Senator Davis. The members of the
ways and means committee will meet on |
Saturday, probably to act on the war
revenue reduction measure, so they can
not attend. Mr. Tawney, of Minnesota,
though one of the committee to attend
the funeral, may bo unable to go to St.
Paul as he is a member of the committee
framing the war revenue act amend
ments. There is one vacancy and Gen.
Gcosvenor is absent, so upon party lines
the committee would be a tie if Mr.
Tawney should be away, unless a pair
could be arranged with one of the mi
nority.
Tne seat formerly occupied by Senator
! Davis will be taken by Senator Hanna
I hereafter, he having applied for it some
| time ago when Senator Davis sought a
seat not yet vacant.
To director of the census, Merriam,
] who was one of the president's callers
i today, the president spoke feelingly of
I the death of Senator Davis ami the gre.it
; loss which the ;;en;;te and the country
' had sustained. Director Merriam 'nas
| not yet decided whether he will become
nuiklate for the vacancy created by
Senator Davis' death?
COMMERCE WITH GERMANY.
Consul General Mason at Berlin, has
' submitted his annual report for 1900 to
the stale department. In which he com
i bines a comprehensive review of com
! mercial and industrial conditions in Ger
| many during the past year," with an
j earnest injunction for an amicable ad
justment of the many vexed questions of
trade and mutual resentment existing
between the empire and the United
States.
Mr. Mason says that a notable Increase
in the imports of American corn and
oats has inspired great uneasiness among
certain German economists of Agrarian
tendencies who hold that in respect to
food product?, forage grains and ocr
! tain other materials Germany is becom-
I ing altogether too dependent upon the
i United States. Tie points out that in tne
| reciprocal trade between the United
I States and Germany for the past decade
a balance of over $200,000,000 rests with
the republic against the empire.
''Germany," he says, ' is^ still poor in
accumulated wealth in comparison with
France and England. Writers in other
countries have painted the situation in
Germany in ronuber colors and have pre
dicted a stormy sea a'heael for certain
German industries in the shape of the
increased cost of fuel and the over
shadowing competition of the United
States. While these general aspects of
the situation are fully recognized in
Germany there is no outward symptom
of trepidation or panic and business men
of all classes face the future with appar
cut confidence."
The condition of German agriculture is
I said to be still unsatisfactory. The most
1 Important agricultural product, in a
j commercial sense, beet sugar bus suf
-1 fered on the whole, although its ex
rportation to the United States has in
! ( reased of late.
Consul General Mason pays:
"The time is ripe for a calm, deliberate
, and scientific revision of the present
j obsolete and imperfect treaties between
! the United States and Germany."
ASIATIC NAVAL STATION.
Secretary Long said today that no
i change is contemplated in the command
j of the Asiatic station and that the de
; tail of Rear Admiral Frederick Rodgers
j to duty on that station vas merely for
the purpose, of giving Rear Admiral
Remey, tne commandant of the station,
mi eh needed assistance. Owing" to the
! large size of the Asiatic squadron and
the important duties devolving upon it
at present in consequence of the troubles
in China and the Philippines, it has been
thought expedient to divide the re
sponsibilities of the navy in that quar
ter among t'nree admirals, inc-tead of
between two, as at present. Rear A4
--| miral Remey as tt\e senior officer, will
continue in supreme command of trie
naval offices and will act in the eh .:
aeter of general manager of the opera
tions of the fleet which will be divided
into two divisions, one operating in Chi
nese waters and the other in the Philip
liine archipelago. Admiral Rodgers un
doubtedly will be placed in command or
the China fleet.
CHANGES IN POSTMASTERS.
While the postomce department has
not made announcement of policy to
govern changes of fourth-class post
masters during the next four years it
can be stated that the department pre
fers that there be no more
changes than the interests of
the service require and that
especially In the Southern states fourtn
class postmasters will continue to
serve during the next four years
of the administration until there
is some good cause for mak
ing a change. It is understood that no

GEN. EAGAN'S CASE.
Officials of the war department detiy
positively that Commissary General
Eagan, now under suspension from tha
army, has been reinstated. It is further
f-aid that Gen. Eagan has filed no formal
application to have his sentence set
as^de. It is understood that Gen. Eagar
rr.ig-ht be reinstated at any time upon
condition that he would accept imme
diate retirement, but he has shown no
disposition to accede to such an arrange
ment.
WILSON"S FUNERAL.
The funeral of the late George W.
Wilson, commissioner of internal rev
enue, was held at the Riggs house here
today. The services were attended* by
Columbia Commandery No. 2, K. T., a
delegation of Templars afterward es
corting the remains to the Pennsylvania
depot. The funeral party started at 3
p. m. for Hamilton, 0,, where i'ne inter
ment will take place.
FOKEIGX CHAIRMANSHIP.
Frje Prefers to Remnin at Head of
Commerce Committee.
LEWISTON, Me.. Nov. 28.—Senator W.
P. Frye started for Washington today
with Ivirs. Frye. The senato • Siiid that he
hoped to see the shipping bill enacted
this winter, but was net oblivious of the
fact that the opposition might pursue
parliamentary tactics to oppose final ac
tion.
He said that he had no doubt that the
■shipping- bill would pass a little later,
even if defeated at this session.
The senator expressed the opinion that
Maine would not lose a congressman un
der the new apportionment.
When asked about "the chairman of the
foreign affairs committee, made vacant
by the death of Senator Davis, Senator
Frye said:
"It is true that the chairman-ship of
the foreign affairs ommittee would nat
urally fall to me, but I think the com
merce committee, a<; whose head I am,
is of more importance just now, and that
I can best serve the country and its
great commercial interests by continuing
in my present position. The interests of
New England in this matter are gnat."
Asked what his views were of the pres
ent issue with Turkey, the senator de
clared that if strenuous measures were
necessary, there would be nothing to
prevent-the war vessels of the United
States from making a trip up the Dar
danelles, as the United States is not par
ty to the European concert to guard the
Mediterranean gateway of Constatinople.

Masonic Hall was Crowded with Merry Dancers
in Gala Attire
Decorations, Costumes, Music and Arrange
ments Were All Pronounced
Perfect
Another charity ball has become a part
of St. Paul's social history. Once more
these women who comprise the board of
managers of St. Luke's hospital have
proven their skill as entertainers and
another triumph has been added to the
many that have made their names fa
mous as hostesses. No other ball has
eyer been given in St. Paul that sur
passed last night's party at Masonic hall
in niceness of detail, in artistic finish,
in absolute comfort provided for the
guests. No other ball has been honored
by more gorgeous gowns, by a braver
display ©t flowers and jewels. It waa
not a crowded hall and for this reason
all the more pleasing was it as a social
function. But while it was never in any
sense a crush the big ball room was well
peopled with the dancers ajid there were
always enough people on the floor to
form an alluring- picture of harmonius
colors. The boxes were nearly all filled
and every seat in the balcony was taken,
many of the older people preferring to
watch the brilliant panorama of light and
color from above rather than mingle,
join in the most fatiguing amusement
with the dancers on the floor below.
The number of society buds present "it
the hall last evening was particularly
noticeable and the gayety which youth
always lends to the dance was a marked
feature of last night's ball. Many gue^is
from out of town were also present,
either as dancers or onlookers.
That keynote of simplicity which has
always marked the decorations of past
charity bails was not departed from last
evening, and the dark green foliage of
palms and trailing vines was the best
possible foil for the gay colored frocks.
.One superb note of color was obtained
by the use of a huge American flag
draped above the stage. The red, whitg
and blue stripes were the only colors
evident in the decorations of the hall.
The stage, by means of rugs, comfortable
divans and palms was a delightful rent
ing room for the dancers and animated
groups of men and v>omen that gathered
there during the evening made it as in
teresting in its way as the ball room.
Near the stage, Danz' orchestra was sta
tioned, the musicians being screened irom
view by palms.
Rather earlier than is customary the
guests last night began*to arrive. At
