The theory that Edith May Woodl wan lured to 'Kama Bob" Eastman's lonely bung-alow without knowledge of where ahe was going, ami that ahe ea drugged and detained there against her will. advanced today when a further aearch of the shack wnicn the auperstltloua folk of the neighborhood foreveriiiore will shun as haunted, revealed a small bottle which a hasty examination showa contained a mixture of narcotic drugs. There were strong traces of mor phine In the nearly empty phial. Thia discovery tends to bear out the theory which the people of the community, who knew and loved the girl long, have wanted to believe. They never have lis tened to the suggestion that she was in volved In a drunken orgla at the bungalow, and have contended that ahe lost her life In repulsing the advances of the man who acknowledged his guilt by anlfflng out his life, when it seemed that the hands of the law were about to be laid upon him. Today's Investigations lead the authorities atlll further away from the Idea that any one other than Eastman could have Invited friends from New York or any other place to visit his bungalow In the condition It was In. The place, only half completed, offered no accommodatlona for visitors whatsoever. A single bed, poorly fitted up; a table and a waahstand completed Ha equipment of furniture. Eastman himself slept In the place Infrequently. Eastman's Lonely Barlal. In a new-made grave, nearly fifty feet from the scene of the crime which led hint to hla death, Eastman's body was laid away early today. No man of the church was there to offer a last word for the dead; no friend or relative came near. The under takers and their assistants, a little band of newspaper men, and a few Idle persons, morbidly attracted to follow the strange funeral procession, were the only persons at the grave. With bared heada they re peated the familiar words of the Lord's piayer. Mrs. Eastman, stopping twelve tnilea away at Easton, expressed no desire to atertj thrTP0e.rt, ' It v.&a t;M o'clock this morning when the casket containing Eastman's body was placed tn the roughly fashioned hearse and the undertakers and others making up the little funeral party started from St. Michaels on the seven-mllo trip to the bungalow. It was past' midnight last night before a decision to postpone the burial van reached.; A. night burial amid the lone pirns of the secluded Eastman farm had been planned, but owing either to give Mrs. Eastman opportunity to be pres ent or because of the welrdness of the night scene that would be enacted about the grave, the Idea was abandoned. Cartas Crowds Gather. Notwithstanding the early hour there were many people abroad In the streets of At. Michaels and along the way to witness the passing Of the strange cortege. Buggies, wagons and all manner of ve hicles were In the funeral line. An hour's drive through the fragrant pines and along the shores at the many tidal streams that Indent the country, brought the party to within light of the unfinished bungalow, which stands now as a monument for the newly mounded grave almost within Its shadow. No churoh or church yard of the vicinity would open Its doors or gates to the dead man. Superstitious negroes alio on yesterday cbuld not be persuaded to dig the gTave stood awe-stricken today on the outskirts of the funeral party. No more lohely spot could well be Imag ined than where the taolated bungalow tanda. Scrub plnea form a background. while In front a green marsh leada away through the shore grasses to the open waters of ttroad creek When the hearse had drawn up alongside the grave, four men lifted the casket from the vehicle and placed It temporarily on two plank supports stretched across ths grave, Into which a pine box already had been lowered. Marsh water had seeped Into the grave over night. The undertaker drew back the eliding lid of the casket In order thai all might see that It waa Eastman who was being con signed to his last resting place, and closed It again. As the casket rested .above the grave, ready to be lowered, there waa an awkward pause. The party about the grave fidgeted nervously. At a nod the supporting boards were slipped away and gradually the casket sank into the grave. The two gravedlg gers hesitated a moment and then stepped forward. One of the undertakers looked around with a certain uneasiness of man ner. Vadertaker Aaka Prayer. "Gentlemen." he said, "It seems to me that some one should say a little word of prayer. Won't one of your Hie glance fell upon James Sutton, a merchaat of Boheman. "You are a church member. Mr. Sutton." aid the undertaker; "won't you aay ItT" Sutton hesitated for a moment, then ask ing all to Join with him, began to repeat the Lord's prayer with solemn earnest ness. When the last words of the prayer were uttered, Sutton stepped forward and filling his hands with newly turned sou from the eld of the grave, thrice tossed the sandy loam upon the casket as he said, "Earth to earth, ashes to aahea, dust to dust." Bassalew la Searched. Following th funeral there waa another thorough search of the bungalow, and con cealed beneath the floor waa found th small drug bottle.

ARMOUR FORESAW OMAHA AS PACKING INDUSTRY CENTER Elbert Habbard Tells How Chlea-a-oan'a Prophecy of Refrigerator Care Was Promptly Realised. Omaha as one of the largeet packing points of the country was foreseen many years ago by Philip D. Armour the late Chicago "Father of the Packing House Industry" according to Elbert Hubbard, the Eaat Aurora writer, In a little volume on the life of the builder of the founda tion of the present-day Armour & Co. organization. He makes the assertion when speaking of Mr. Armour's Institution of the re frigerator car and furthermore declares that the Iced car system had Hi inception aa the result of the utterlnga of this prophecy. "To ship cattle long distance was un wise," writes Mr. Hubbard, reviewing a few of the difficulties to be overcome by Mr. Armour In making a success of the refrigerator car. "and he then declared that Omaha, Kansas City and various other cities of the west would yet have slaughter houses, where live stock could be received after a very ahort haul. The product could then be paased along In re frlgerator cara and the expense of Ice would not be as much as to unload and teed the stock. But. better than all, the product would be more wholesome." It was this Idea that finally blossomed Into the Ice car system, says Mr. Hub bard. He also dips into an Interesting explanation of the early uses and history of the refrigerator car and Its necessity in the transportation of dressed meat on the success of which the centralised meat packing plant depended. LOST WHALERMEN ARE FOUND Men Given Vp for Dead Art Broaarht Safely Into Port by I.lner. NEW YORK. June 27. Six whalemen from New Bedford.

Greater Pittsburg walked today, amidst Intermit tent thunder showera and a torrid sun. riince 5 o'clock thia morning only one street car (it carried the United States mail) has moved In the city and suburbs. Persona living In outer Allegheny county used the hastily provided shuttle tralna of the Pennsylvania railroad and the Balti more A Ohio. On these trains travel was extraordinarily light, so much so that at noon the railways took off the five-minute schedules anl substituted hourly service. Downtown Pittsburg was deserted for the entire day except at the headquarters of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employes and the offices of the Pittsburg Railways company At union headquarters the strikers congre gated early. The men unitedly declared for a long and hard-fought strike. At tho offices of the Pittsburg Railways company the executive officers consulted all day,' planning their campaign to break the strike. The day was marked witn nut one clash between union men and would-be strike breakers. Nesrroes Driven Ont. Two negroes applied to the superintend ent at the Homewood car barns for situa tions, and were set upon by alleged union sympathizers and chased from the district. The police were notified, but no arrests were made. Conveyances were early placed at premium by wagon and cab owners. The taxlcaba of the city did a large buslneas, and were allowed to break speed limits In their efforts to handle the Inter-resident district traffic. At many of the churches today morning and afternoon services were dispensed with. Preacher Approves Strike. Rev. Dr. A. Fisher of the Wylle Avenue Baptist church, an aristocratic congrega tlon In the Herron Hill district, made ref erence to the strike at his morning wor ship, however. In the following words: "If these men, both union men and of ficials, had loved each other aa Christ taught, thia strike, which now engulfs this city, would never have occurred. I be lieve these poor striking motormen and conductors are only asking what these wealthy street railway operators could have granted without straining a point. I pray God that no violence may attend this labor struggle, as marked Pittsburg by a trail of blood during those unforgettable days of the Homestead strikes." Wild rumors of strikebreakers arriving and being hidden In waterfront houses poured Into the police station during the day. Investigation of the rumora proved them to be without foundation. However, it Is known that the Pittsburg Railways company has been negotiating with profes slonal strikebreakers, who will undoubtedly bring Imported men here to run the street cars. Strike Breakers Comlngr. An agent for a strikebreaking concern was heard from In Latrobe, a short dis tance from here, today. K ta said he had contracted . for 200 foreigners to come to Pittsburg to man cars during the trouble. In this connection It Is known that for the last three or four weeks the Pittsburg Rail ways company has anticipated a general strike of Its employes. Extra crews have been broken in on all lines throughout the city and environs. On the Herron Hill line. where seven cars ran hourly under the ordinary achedulea during the last week fourteen have been In operation in charge of the extra crews. In other parts of the city the same aituatlon prevailed. Mills Are Crippled. The Homestead Steel mills are seriously crippled by the strike. Just enough men to keep the furnacea from cooling and to operate the various departments reported for work today. Arrangements have been made by the mill officials to house the men In barracks during the strike. The Pittsburg Railways company Is said to be owned by the United Securities com pany of San Francisco, the same company which controls the United Railways com pany of that city, and whose president Is Patrick Calhoun. The Pittsburg Railways company operates under a charter granted to the Philadelphia Railways company of Philadelphia. Chines Official Dead. PEKING, June 27.

EARNINGS TAX TO COME NEXT It Will Be Beached in the Senate Within a Few Days. MEANS THREE WEEKS' DELAY At Least that Mirk Time Will Be Consumed Before Tariff Bill Is Voted on by Senators Forecast of ' Week. WASHINGTON",' JunVii ?T. The corpora tion tax question will receive the attention of the senate this week. When the subject Is to be taken up depends on the time to be devoted to the consideration of the house schedules yet to be conaldered In connection with the tariff. They include the questions of cotton ties, cotton bagglnir, binding twine, steel rails and structural steel. The southern senators will make a de termined fight In favor of free bagging and ties, contending that If binding twine Is to go on the undutlable list to satisfy the farmers of the northwest, the articles In question should be given the same treat ment to gratify the farmers of the south. With these Items disposed of, the senate will begin consideration of the corporation tax question, in connection with the In come tax question previously offered by Senator Bailey. The corporation tax pro vision of President Taft will be presented as a substitute for the Balloy-Cummlns amendment and the fight will turn largely upon the comparative merits of the two provisions. The supporters of the administration are confident of success. They say that but eight votes for the corporation provision will be lost from among republican sen ators. The democrats will generally vote for the Income tax, but with that out of the way, many of them will give their ad herence to the provision for levying tribute upon the corporations. Estimates of the time required for the disposition of this question vary all the way from one week to two weeks. After the corporation tax will come the administrative feature of the blll, the max imum and minimum rate and drawback provisions, and other related questions. Only extremely hot weather can force ac tion on the bill within leas than three weeks' Time. Brewery Combine Taken Into Court Secretary Charges that Its Manage ment Has Encouraged Local Optionists.

HE SAYS GIVE FORTY THOUSAND That Amount Will Doable Capacity, and This, He Saya, Is Needed, as Pntlents Are Belnar Tnrned Away. The Rev. Charles N. Dawson, field see retary of "the Nebraska Methodlat Eplsco pal Hospital association, made a plea from the pulpit of the First Methodist church Sunday morning for contributions to a fund being raised for the erection of a new wing to the Omaha hospital. The present capacity of the building which about, ninety can be doubled at a cost of $40,000, although the original Investment was $210,000. Taking for his text, the familiar quo tation from Mathew, "Inasmuch as ye do It unto on of the least of these, my brethern, ye do It unto me." the Rev. Mr. Dawson said: The Methodist hospital Is not by any means only for the use of Methodist peo ple, or for the use of people who belong to any church whatever but It belongs to all Methodist people and to any one as much as to any other. You all have an Interest in It I waa member of the first committee ever organized for the erection of a Methodlat hospital In this city. We got a site all picked out and then failed through the lack of support from the lay members pf the church. Through Dr. Olfford we secured the building on aouth Twentieth street after a few years and paid for It, but It was never a fit place to take sick people and It was over crowded as soon as It waa opened. 'When, as the result of a long series of efforts and praying, we got our new hospital with beds for eighty patients, It was only a short time that It too, had more applicants than could be taken care of. Th laundry and th chapel were pressed Into service and fifteen more beds were added, but we are still turning many away from the door. "We do not ask for help In supporting the Institution. It supports Itself, but we want this new wing and we want you to take your share tn building It. "We'll get the money because it is needed and Nebraska Methodists have never yet failed to solve any problem that they have met. To get back to the text, no man ever lost anything by doing things for God and humanly. This Is giving to the poor and lending to the Lord."

DISTRUST WEAKENS POWER Undermines Character of Its Victims, He Declares. CYNICAL MAN NOT TRUSTED World Inclined to A Maine Weakness Which He Attributes to Other Affects Himself rreaehee Baccalaureate Sermon. NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 27-In the presence of a commencement gathering which filled Woolsey hall, President Ar thur T. Hadley of Yale university deliv ered the baccalaureate aermon to the grad uating class this morning. Among those who had seats were Preal dent lAwell of Harvard and Mrs. Lowell, and General and Mrs. W. H. Gordon of Savanah. President Hadley said In nart: 'In order to accomplish anything great. a man muat have two aides to his good ness, a personal aide and a social aide. He must be upright himself and he must rec ognise the good Intentions and the possi bilities of others about him. "We recognise the first of the things. We. know that the leader must have prlnclpla of his own: that he must stand for some thing definite, which he is prepared to maintain through evil report and good re port. We do not, I think, recognize the second of these things In an equal degree. We do not appreciate how necessary It la for a man to believe In those about him Just aa far as he can, and co-operate with them Just aa fully as he can. Yet this also Is a condition of larger leadership. "No matter how high the ldeeils for which we stand, we cannot expect othera to follow us unless we have confidence In him. We cannot expect devotion If we re turn It with distrust. We cannot expect co-operation unless we are prepared to give freely of our confidence. What Lack or Faith Costa. "The man who lacks faith In other men loses hla best chances to work, and grad ually undermines his own power and his own character. "If a man singled out some occurrence of my life, came to me with a distorted ac count of It and then said that tt was typ ical of my whole career and conduct, I should order him to leave the house; and so would you under similar circumstances. If we were equally ready to do the earn. thing In behalf of our frlenda when charges or Insinuations are made- behind tbelr backs, modern society would be healthHr' and more efficient than It la at present. "By the ready acceptance of these re ports we harm ourselves no less than our frlenda. We do not realise to what extent others Judge us by our beliefs. But we are. In fact. Judged In that way; and tt Is right that we shenild b judged In that way. "The man who la cynical, whether Shout women or buslneaa, or politics, Is assumed and In nineteen caaea out of twenty with full Justice to be Immoral In his relations to women or buslneas or politics. Th man who has faith In the Integrity of othera In the face of trreaponslble accusations Is assumed and tn nineteen cases out of twenty Justly assumed to have the con fidence In others' goodness becauk he la a good man himself. Men Follow the Optimist. "This Is why people will follow the op timist even though he is sometimes wrong, and shun the pessimist even though he Is sometimes right. McClellan knew what to avoid better than Lincoln or Grant, but It was men of the type of Lincoln or Grant who brought a united nation out of the civil war. "The prophets who preceded Jesus criti cised the evils of their time Just as un sparingly as did Jesus Himself, and at far greater length. The thing that He had and that they had not was th belief In the essential goodness of humanity whloh would respond positively to the gospel of self-sacrifice. "He that would follow In th footsteps of the Master must be prepared, not simply to stand upright himself, but to hay faith that others will stand by him.""
