The circumstances leading to tne
final discovery of the body are par
ticularly interesting. General For
ter his conducted vthe search for
the last five yearSj and when Con
grass recently took no action upon
the president a recommendation tor
the expenses incident to the search,
the ambassador continued the ex
tensive labors at his own expense
A large force of workmen has been
engaged, eight and day, ' tunneling
and crosErtunneliDg' the " old St,

a huge operation, embracing near
ly a block covered wilh buildings
and requiring a svstem of subter

fourid, but .'not- until 'Wednesday
were unearthed four leaden caskets

thie catket, and it is euppoeed it
was removed, when another coffin
w is sdper-imposed on it. The lead--en
coffin was " opened in Jthe pres
ence of General Porter, Colonel Bai
ley Blanchard, second secretary of
the Americau.ebaesy,: and Engin
eer Weis, who has been directing
the excavation. :
The body was found to be 'well
preserved, owing to its being im
mersed in alcohol, it was wrap
ped in a eheet with a packing . of
straw and hay. ThoBe present were
immediately, struck by the resemb
lance of the head to that on the me
dallions and bust of the admiral.
As was anticipated, no uniform,
decoration or sword was found.v as
all such articles bad been accounted
for after the burial. The coffin is
shaped like a mummy coffin, which
coffins were common at . that - peri-
riod, widening from' the feet to the
shoulders, with' round top fitting
over the head. ' ; " "
The coffin was taken to the med
ical school, where Drs. Capitan and
Padileau, the distinguiehed profes
sora of the school of Anthropology,
recognized authorities on euch in
vestigations, were charged with
caking a thorough examination
for the purpose of identification.
To facilitate this, the ambassador
famished them with poitraits and
medallions, two busts by Houdin
acd authentic descriptions of the
color of the admiral's hair and the
height and measurement of his
body. After the most minute ex
amination the following facts were
fully substantiated: . " -
Length of body, five feet, seven
irche; the admiral's height. Size
ami shape of the head agree, with
several peculiarities, identical with
the head of the admiral. Hair,
dark brown,, the same as the ad
miral's, ia places slightly gray, in
dicating a person of -hia age, 454
years. The hair is long, reaching
below the shoulders, and is combed
back aud gathered in a clasp at the
back of the neck. The face is clean

with the descriptions, portraits and
busts of the admiral. The linen is
in good condition. One article

today attended religious services in

Young, the Patterson girl went to
the Catholic chapel and listened to
the sermon preaohed by Rev. Fath

Nan Patterson said she was in ex
cellent spirits, and ' was anxious
that the trial should go on tomor
row without further . delay. . The
first trial of the girl was suspended
after several days had been consum
ed in securing a jury, and after the
taking of testimony had progressed
to a critical point one of the jury
men became ill, the attack " becom

declaration-of a mistrial. , The sec

In his talk Governor Chamber
lain expressed his deep interest in
the objects of the association, and
said he agreed with President
Roosevelt in that he did not believe
in race suicide. He was - glad to
contribute to the subject from his
own experience. The governor.'
commended the movements that
bring parent and teacher into clos-
er relationship and better under
standing. Governor Chamberlain
eaid in part:
"We all have differeatr methods "
of managing our children, and we
get information by interchange of
laeas. - -1 o my mina tnere are sev-.

I given credit for, and when a child
is treated unfairly by a parent it
does not forget it. An injustice is
never forgotten. We should be
careful, and be ourselves just what
we want our children to be. A, "
parent should7 not fall below the ;
standard required of ' the
child; Truth should be cultivated.
Business men encounter untruth in '
their affairs. The principle of
truthfulness should be ground into

Reno, Nevi, April 14. Hundreds
of people flocked into Reno on the
Virginia and- lruckee train tonight,
fleeing from the sickness now so
prevalent at Tpnopah. Every train
for a week has been crowded, and,
strange as it may seem, the ingoing
trains have been .filled also. The
people of the town have taken the
matter in band, . and - tomorrow
morning the Nevada State Journal,
of this place, will send in a physi
cian, Dr. Heppner, late of the Unit
ed -States army, who f has been
through a number, of plagues. ; He
goes to find the true conditions in
the camp, and will submit a. report
soon after his arrival there , Uov-
ernor Sparka tomorrow will also ap
point a special medical commission
and send the members into Tono-
pah. Theee men will co-operate
with the pbysicians ot tne camp
and at once begin a campaign to
check the disease that is mowing
down people at the rate cf from five
to 25 each day.
Yesterday 12 bodies were stretch
ed out on slabs in the onlv under
taking establisnment in the camp
An equal number at least, were
dead around the town. The disease
strikes without warning, the healthy
being the most susceptible, and ia j
from 12 to 24 hours are dead, the
bodies blackened by the mysterious
poison that saps their lives away.
A quarantine has not been de
clared as yet, but probably will be
witnin the next. 24 hours. .
Every train into Reno for the
past week has been bringing all the
way from iOO to 250 people, bound
anywhere to escape the ravages of a
dread disease or plague that has
fastened itself upon the great min
ing camp. Some are terror-stricken
Others frightened, but all are Intent
on the one object to get to a coun
try where people are not stricken
without warning and die in , a day.
They. all bring storits oi death.
With it all, the people of Tono
pah held a mass meeting. In less
than an hour $2,000, was raised, and
now tba fight to stamp out tha
dread malady, whatever it is, is in
progress. . ' '
