has been investigating the deaths
attendant upon the loss of the
Lusitania, returned the following
verdict to-day r

witnesses consider the lifeboat fiasco.
Beginning at noon yesterday, at Con
sol Frost's orders, the bodies, of the
identified Americans, covered with the
Mars and Stripes, were removed from the
scattere ilinorgues and placed side bv
side in the Cunard line office on the
water front. As the bodies were car
ried through the streets, British sailors
and crowds stood with uncovered heads.
Cheap brown coffins contained the, re
mains of Charles Frohman and others of
pioniinence. A company of British sol
diers has completed digging three bugs
praxes, esch 30 by 20 feet, in which the
10 unidentified dead will be buried.
The moving of the bodies up the bill
to the cemetery was stsrted at fl:.1fl this
morning and continued to 1:30. Thirty
mounted police and civilians participated
in the funeral parade and clergymen of
all creeds joined In eaying prayers.
Many of the bodies of children and lit
tle habiia still lie in the morgues, cor.
rred with flowers by townspeople, and
probably the little one will be. placed in
a grave together. The presence of so
many children on the Lusitania was
due to the fact that many Canadian
women were going to England to stay
v it h relatives while their husband were
at the front.
Consul Frost lias been indefatigable
in misting the AmTNun survivors and
attending to their wants. He baa sup
plied many of tliem with money to
loach ticir destination. All the iden
tified American dead bave been claimed
by tbe i-onsiil. e-en in cases where lo

Ijondon, May . 10. Thomas Slidell, ,-tf
New York, who was. interviewed in Lon
don to-day, said he saw Alfred 0. Van

The ship sank a few seconds later.
Mr. Slidell said that he and Herbert
Stone, of New York, were sitting in the
smoking room by themselves when the
hrst torpedo struck the ship. Roth men
intuitively knew what had happened, and
both simultaneously uttered the word

lord Mersey is to conduct an inquiry
into the sinking of the vessel and, until
that begins, official opinion as to how
the Lusitania came to be caught and
why so many lives were lost, will re
main a secret. I lie general opinion is
that several German submarines were
assigned to tbe task of attacking the
CunaiJ liner and that they manu'iivered
her into a position where she could not
esca pe.
Passengers savs that for some time
before the first torpedo was Hied the
Lusitania had altered her course and
they ascribe this to the fact that one
of the German submarines had shown
herself, sending the big liner in the direc
tion where other under-water craft were
waiting to strike, with their deadly tor-

,400 tons and much more powerful than

The situation in Flanders and
in the Carpathians, where the
critical battles of the present
phase of the war are being fought,
is still obscure. On the western
front, both Hermans and their op
ponents claim considerable gains,
In the Carpathians, a similar sit
uation exists, for though the Rus
sians admit reverses at the hands
of the -Austrian and fiermans,
they concede no such serious dn
feats as are indicated by state
ments from Berlin and Vienna,
and assert that the Teutonic allies .
are now being checked.
The Italian government is now
expected to reach shortly its de
cision for or against war. In this
connection, Rome regards as of
significance the visit to the capital
of Signor Giolitti, former premier
and member of the neutralist
group. It is reported sis Rome
that if Italy decides to enter the
war, she will do so by declaring
war on Turkey.

Newbury, May 10. Two children of
Mr. and , Mrs, Ray Tewksbury were
burned to death yesterday when the
buildings on the farm of their grand
father, Henry W Tewksbury, at West
Newbury were destroyed bv fire. The
bodies of the ,'ittle ones, a boy aged
four years and a girl aged six yean,
were found in the rums of the barn aft
er the fire had subsided. The financial
loss is about ?3.000, the house and large
barn being destroyed, together with most
of their contents. All the stock was
saved except a few hogs. Most of the
cattle and horses had been turned out
to pasture that morning.
The fire broke out at about 10:30
o'clock, 10 minutes after the children
had been playing in the yard with their
father. The elder Mr. Tewksbury and
wife were away, attending church, and
Rav Tewksbury and wife remained at
home, the latter caring for a young
child, now the only one left to them.
It is supposed that the two elder chil
dren of the family; securing some
matches, went to the barn to play with
them, setting the hay on fire and at
the same time their own clothing. The
body of one wag found near the side of
the barn as if the child had tried to flee
from the building, while the body of the
other was near where the reaper was
located, in another building, the child
having apparently sought refuge back
of the machine.
The parents of the children could do
nothing to put out the fire, and at first
they did not know that the children
were in the burning building, although
they were not in sight at the
time of the discovery of the fire. The
flames soon spread to the houe, and
that building was soon doomed, together
with its contents. The buildings were
good structures. The farm is owned bv
the elder Tewksbury and was formerly
known as the John Smith place, H h
located near Tucker mountain.

President Wilson Had Been Shot.
Starting from some rumor, s report
that President W'iNon had been shot
spread like wildfire throughout Barre
late yesterday and the alarm thus occa
sioned had not completely subsided early
this afternoon, as requests for informa

tempt at explanation of the wild story
might lead to the press report that an
efiurt bad been made to kill Koipie Gon

was resumed. As assurance of the aafe-
