Friends Milntaihsd That Senator Was
Improving Until Late Hour When
Turn Was Noted; End Came
Shortly Before Midnight
Washington.—Senator Boies Penrose
of Pennsylvania died here late Satur
day night after a brief illness. Senator
Penrose, who was 61 years of age,
had been complaining for some days,
but it was stated repeatedly by his
friends that his condition was improv
ing and that he would be able to re
sume his duties in the senate soon.
His recent work as chairman of the
finance committee in handling tax and
tariff legislation was a greater hard
ship, his friends said, than he himself
had realized.
Senator Penrose died of pulmonary
thrombosis, as a result of heart fail
ure, Dr. Roy A. Adams, his physician,
said. Dr. Adams and two nurses were
the only persons in the room when the
end came.
Until a few moments before death
Senator Penrose, his physician said,
was quite comfortable, although he
soon relapsed Into unconsciousness and
it was realized that his condition was
Senator Penrose’s illness, after his
recuperation from a long seige, which
kept him away from the senate for
months, started early in the week with
a bad cold. There was a change for
the better on Wednesday, but he suf
fered a slight relapse Thursday. De
spite that, however, he was able to be
up and around his apartment.
The senator’s brother. Dr. Charles
Penrose, of Philadelphia, came here to
see him after the first cold attack but
returned home Wednesday, feeling that
the senator was well on the mend. Dr.
Adams was with Senator Penrose most
of the afternoon and throughout the
evening. Senator Penrose occupied a
large suit on the top floor of the hotel
and it was said he was able to look
out over the city the morning before
his condition began to change for the
worse. It was said that he was par
ticularly anxious to recoup his strength
so that he could return to his duties
as chairman of the finance committee
hearing witnesses to the tariff bill.
Dr. Annins gave the time of the sen
ator’s death as 11:30 o’clock. Friends
of Senator Penrose said that the sud
den death recently of his colleague.
Senator Knox, had been such a shock
to him that Lt had affected him several
days ago while he was doing his beet
to shake off a deep cold. Like Senator
Knox he died suddenly, for as Dr.
Arams explained, that while he knew
the senator was quite 111, he did net
anticipate death.
Senator Penrose had a brilliant
career in the upper house, and wns a
recognized Republican party leader In
Cannes, France.—George Harvey,
American ambassador to Great Britain,
Saturday afternoon had his first con
versation with Prime Minister Lloyd
George since their arrival here for
next week’s meeting of the allied su
preme council. The Interview was in
Ambassador Harvey told the cor
respondent that his talk with the
British prime minister was of a gen
eral nature and did not include dla
cnsslon of the marine or any other
question in which the United State®
was vitally interested.
Mr. Harvey let it be known that the
United State* would make no more for
a more active part In the approaching
council meeting, and said America’s
position would be the same as at the
council’s last meeting In Paris, despite
British reports to the contrary. Should
the allies desire the United States to
participate fully in consideration of
plans for an economic conference or in
discussions of the German reparations
question, they must request it. Other
wise. the American representative
would Rlt in next week’s sessions only
ns an Interested observer.
It was said that Mr. Harvey might
take part in the preliminary conversa
tions between Mr. Lloyd George and
Premier Brisnd if the mihmm-ln? ques
tion should come up.

Presents Resignation

jorities in favor of ratification of the
Irish treaty was recorded Saturday by
the Cork County council, which voted,
16 to 14, at a meeting specially sum
moned by the lord mayor.
A resolution was moved proposing to
leave the decision to the dail elrennn,
but after long discussion an amend
ment was carried to the effect that as
there Is no alternative to accept, the
treaty should be ratified.

carried by the Donegal county council,
one member. Mr. Duffy, formally pre
sented his resignation, saying he was
unable to accept the treaty, but real

urban council were among many other
bodies adopting resolutions In favor
of ratification. Owing to the uncer

has been suspended temporarily to all
Irish Infantry regiments except the
Irish guards.
Besides the public bodies, the treaty
is being debated in the county com
mittees of the Sinn Fein organization
and all those which already have met
have declared In Its favor. But the dis
cussions in every case have reached
a division of opinion similar to that in
the dail eireann, showing an active
minority disapproving.

Casting aside the possibility of har
monizing views on submarine tonnage,
the American delegation brought forth
a new proposal -to limit the size of
submarines and other auxiliary craft
to a maximum of 10,000 tons.

ed with an air of finality the declara
tion that France could not accept less
than 330,000 tons of auxiliary tonnage,

proposal would have given France

smaller tonnage, and Japan, also

amounted to something which Japan

American proposal.

Embezzlement Indictments Against
Governor Are Set Aside; Date
of Trial Not Certain

Thursday was freed of every charge
against him except that of conspiring
with Lieut. Gov. Fred E. Sterling and
Vernon Curtis to defraud the state of
$2,000,000 during Mr. Sterling’s term
as state treasurer.
All charges of eml»ezz|ement during
his own term as state treasurer were
Rtrlcken from the records, partly by
Judge Claire C. Edwards and partly
by the state, and the court also
quashed a charge of operating a con
fidence game.
The date of his trial on the one
charge remaining is still uncertain.
State’s Attorney C. Fred Mortimer
staged a vigorous fight to bring the
governor to trial on the first conspir
acy charge, and falling In that nolled
the embezzlement indictment rather
than try it first.

ing the governor with misappropriat
ing $500,000 in state Interest money,
also alleged he had destroyed or car
ried away many of the records of the
treasurer’s office.

tween the governor and his prosecu
tors will be staged here January 7
when the defense expects to present
a motion asking for separate trials for
the governor and Mr. Curtis, who are
bpth defendants under the conspiracy
charge. Legal Jockeying may postpone
the actual start of the trial a mouth
or more.
A missing word, the position of a
name, three errors In drawing indict
ments and the shuffling of n pile of
papers won a string of victories for
the governor.
