Francisco Matron's
Complete Reason for This Action Is
Not Given President's Daugh
ter Enjoying Trip With All
Father's Enthusiasm.
SAX FRANCISCO. Cal., July 3. (Spe
cial.) For some unexplained reason. Miss
Alice Roosevelt has withdrawn her ac
ceptance of the hospitality of Mrs. V. H.
Metcalf. wife of the Secretary of Com
merce and Labor, during her stay in Cali
fornia on the way to the Philippine?. MIsb
Roosex-elt was to have been the guest of
Mrs. Metcalf at the Lamors. her beauti
ful home in the Piedmont Hills, back of
Oakland. The proposed receptions and
luncheons have been canceled by Mrs.
The supposition is that Mia Roosevelt
found that it would be Impossible for her
to take part In the scheduled festivities
unless she had apartments In San Fran
cisco. Mrs. Dubois, the wife of the Sena
tor, will act as her chaperon.
Colonel J. C. Klrkpatrlck. of the Palace

Palace for rooms for the PrepJdenfs
daughter also stated that she would share
them with two traveling companions, her
chums. Miss Mabel T. Boardman daugh
ter of Mrs. and Mr. William J. Boardman,
of Washington. D. C. and Miss Amy Mc
Millan, daughter of the late Senator from
Michigan. The three young women have
two maids.
Miss Roopevelt and her two traveling
companions are Included among those of
the party who are to pay their own way.
The Taft party includes 100 people. About
half of them will have to pay their own
expenses. Miss Roosevelt's ordinary ex
penses for the trip, like those of the oth
ers who have to pay, will-average be
tween 560 and $70 a week.
At Shanghai the Viceroy Is to present
the freedom of the city to the visitors.
"While at Hongkong Miss Roosevelt and
the other women of the party are to be
the guests of Sir Matthew Nathan, the

Terrific Mill at Salt Lake Causes
Severe Punishment.
SALT LAKE CITY. July 3.-Mike
Schreck of Chicago, tonight knocked out
Dave Barry, of San Francisco. In the
twentieth round. The fight went to wlth
ing 30 seconds of the full 20 rounds. In
nearly every round Barry stood up under
terrific punishment and showed wonderful
recuperative power. Until Schreck landed
the right swing on the neck which put
Barry down and out, neither man went
to the mot. In every round it was fierce,
hard milling, and the fight was pro- 1
nounced the best ever seen here.
In the first five rounds neither man had
any advantage, both leading and both
blocking and covering cleverly. The sixth
round was Schreck's. In the five rounds
fallowing. Schreck forced the fighting,
and both the eighth and ninth ended with
Barry In distress and hanging on to avoid
punishment. In the tenth Barry was
groggy under a shower of blows rained
on his head and neck, but when he seemed
all but out he staggered Schreck with a
right swing to the Jaw. The eleventh,
twelfth and thirteenth were not so fast,
both men showing the effect of the hard
slugging. In the fourteenth Schreck
fought Barry to a standstill, landing re
peatedly rights and lefts to the head nd
neck, and opening up a gash under Bar
ry's left eye. The round ended with Barry
all but beaten, but Schreck lacked the
steam to put 'him out.
Again in the sixteenth Barry was grog
gy, and was wabbling when the bell ended
the round. In the seventeenth, eighteenth
and nineteenth Barry was on the defen
sive, but with wonderful gameness stood
up and landed hard blows to the head,
neck and wind that made the Chlcagoan
The twentieth opened with both men
tired and Barry in distress, Schreck
ruehed and both swung wildly. After a
clinch Schreck sent Barry's head back
with a right to the jaw and sent right
and left to the head. Barry swung wild
ly, but went down under Schreck's rights
and lefts to the head, and for a- moment
hung helpless on the ropes. Schreck for
the moment could not deliver the knock
out blow, and Barry, recovering, came
back at him wildly. Schreck again rained
rights and lefts on the head of the Pacific
Coast champion, and Barry, again groggy,
went down and out under a right swing
to the neck, rolling under the ropes. After
his second carried him to his corner it
was a full minute before he recovered.

gram challenging the winner, waiving all
conditions and agreeing to fight within

Old Man Breaks His Parole and
Returns to Oregon.
William Beckman. a Civil War veteran,
having fought in the battle of Bull Run,
and who is now more than 70 years old,
faces life imprisonment at Salem, be
causq he broke his parole and returned
to Oregon after an absence of over three
years. Beckman was sentenced to life
imprisonment in 1S94 for killing his wife
and son on a farm near Roseburg. The
old man claims that he shot his wife
and son in self-defense, as they were
threatening to kill him with an ax, being
Incited to do so by Minnesota people who
had excited a family quarrel.
Beckman served over seven years of
his life term In the State Penitentiary,
when he was pardoned by ex-Governor
T. T. Geer. who permitted the old man
to go on condition that he leave the state
and never return. Beckman. with only
a little money, left Oregon and obtained

man at Fourth and Flanders streets.
Beckman stopped off here. He has been
in the city about four weeks. The Sheriff
at Ropeburg heard that the old man had
broken his parole and had returned to
Oregon. He telephoned the police to ar
rest him. He was found last night on
Fourth and Flanders streets by Detec
tives Carpenter and Reslng.
At the station Beckman took his arrest
philosophically and said that he would
be willing to do anything the officers
wished. In hu pocket was a ticket to
California, where the old man said that
he Intended going today. A few traces
of tears were seen In the old man's eyes
as he paced up and down the station
floor reciting his story. The Sheriff at
Roseburg is expected to arrive thl? morn
ing to return the old man to Salem.

Body of Secretary Hay Is
Guarded by Soldiers.
Casket "Will Not Be Opened to Pub
lic Gaze President and Cabinet
Will Arrive Wednesday and
Act as Pallbearers.
CLEVELAND. July 3. Guarded by four
cavalrymen, the casket containing the
body of John Hay lay today in seml-mll-
itary state in the auditorium of the
Chamber of Commerce. It will remain
there all f tomorrow and until 9:30
o'clock Wednesday morning.
Everything connected with the funeral
of the Secretary has thus far been of the
simplest character, and It is the Inten
tion of the members of the- family to
avoid the slightest ostentation or public
display in connection with the funeral.
Save for the fact that the hears was es
corted by a troop of cavalry on Its way
from the station to the Chamber of Com
merce, there was nothing to tell- the
casual observer of totdays events In
Cleveland that one of the great men of
the nation, whose name was known
throughout the world, had died. One
large wreath of roses and sweet peas
and two crossed palms, caught and held
together by a broad band of purple rib
bon, rested on the casket, and on the
floor at both ends of the bier lay tco
other wreaths of roses. Behind the casket
was an embankment of palms, and potted
plants were scattered in profusion around
the hall.
The body arrived at the station of the
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Rail
road a few minutes alter 10 o'clock and.
escorted by troop A of the Oho National
Guard, was taken tot the Chamber of
Commerce, where it will remain until 9:30
o'clock Wednesday morning, when it will
be taken to Wade Chapel In Lake View.
President and Cabinet Going.
Word has been received by the local
committee that President Roosevelt and
the members of the cabinet who are to
act as honorary pallbearers will arrive
over the Pennsylvania Railroad at 9
o'clock Wednesday morning. The Presi
dent will be driven directly to the Cham
ber of Commerce and the funeral cortege
will start for the cemetery within a few
minutes after his arrival. Immediately
after the conclusion of the services, the
President will return to his train and will
be on his way to Oyster Bay at 3 o'clock.
Immediately the car came to a stop, the
committee, marching two and two, en
tered intot a line In pe rear of the car.
Under the command of Lieutenant Otto
Miller, of Troop A, four Sergeants of
the troop, together with two corporals,
formed in double column behind the com
mittee. Falling back toward the sides .of
the car. the members of the committee
save way to the detail of noncommis
sioned officers, who advanced to the end
of the train and received from the under
takers assistants the casket.
The cavalry at once wheeled Into col
umn In advance of the hearse. And as
soon as the members of the committee
had taken their places In their rarriages.
the line of march was taken up for the
Chamoer 6f Commerce, about one mllo
distant. The escort proceeded at a slow
march, requiring about 20 minutes to
cover the distance.
Alone Under Military Guard.
Not over 200 people were at the depot
when the funeral train arrived, and a
crowd of possibly twice that number was
gathered In front of the Chamber of Com
merce building when the cavalry arrived
opposite Its door. Wheeling his men to
one side of the street Into a line. Captain
Schofield again brought them to present
arms, while the six noncommissioned of
ficers bore the body from the hearse
through the broad entrance to the Cham
ber of Commerce building and down the
long hallway, which was absolutely de
serted save for the presence of a solitary"
sentry, who stood motionless with his
carbine presented until all the funeral
party had passed along. i
The casket was borne into the audi
torium, where it was placed upon a low
Dier. tne oiacK oi wnicn was relieved, oy
the folds of the National flag, which was
draped across it. The bier was placed In
the Identical snot where the body of the
late Senator Hanna lay In state.
By the request of Mrs. Hay the casket
will not be opened during the time It re
mains In the Chamber of Commerce, and
the public generally will not be admitted

Yens face to indicate wnat tne xaiai

of fireworks outside the courtroom
boomed and snapped. Those out on the
street knew nothing of the dramatic
scene which was taking place in that
brightly-lighted room. There hearts
were throbbing, nerves were strung with
that awful thing, suspense. It seemed
an age from the time that that small

mend him to the mercy of the Court for
Slowly the full meaning seemed to
creep Into the minds of those who heard J
the word "guilty." Senator Mitchell
seemed suddenly turned to stone and for
fully a second he sat without moving.
He never took his eyes from the Jurors.
He acted like a man who had heard In
credible news, and it was not until Judge
Bennett rose from hl3 scat that he moved.
Half hopelessly, he glanced at the Court
and then towards Judge Bennett. At this
Juncture ex-Senator Thurston, accom
panied by Mrs. Thurston, entered the
courtroom, and took a seat close to the
Senator. Ex-Senator Thurston arrived
Just too late to hear the reading- of the
verdict and as he took his soat. Senator
Mitchell leaned over towards him and
whispered "It was guilty." The news
visibly affected Mr. Thurston anil ag he
shook his client and former colleague by
the hand, he whispered words of en
couragement to him.
Mrs. Thurston Lends Sympathy.
Mrs. Thurston was first to reach the
Senator's side. She was seated directly
behind him and as soon as Judge De
Haven excused the Jurors from further
duty, she patted him affectionately upon
the shoulder and almost In tears herself,
told him to bo brave and that she still
believed him Innocent. Judge Carey and
several others surrounded the Senator
and also spoke words of encouragement.
Quietly the crowd had slipped away, dis
appeared almost as mysteriously as it
came, and the Senator, supported on eith
er side by ex-Senator Thurston and Judge
Bennett, left the courtroom. It must
have been with a masterful effort that
the Senator controlled himself. As he
reached the open air he seemed to gain
strength And when he bade Mrs. Thurs
ton good night, his voice was quiet and
firm. Ho said In parting: "I'm going
home to sleep and take a good rest."
Judge Bennett accompanied him to his
apartments. On the way there he was
asked It he had anything to say for publi
cation, but he waved his hand hopeless

The moments were tense while the

and tne victim of the Justice of the

turned on In the silent courtroom and
those who had gathered from the
streets with the seeming Instinct of the
birds of the desert, grouped noiselessly
inside the barriers. It was not time to
think whether or not the rule of the
court permitted their presence, what
their rank or their privilege. It was the
moment when the people of the State
of Oregon and of the United States lis
tened to hear the verdict of 12 men.

took its steadier companion of the dial
and marked the hour of 11. Judge De
Haven resumed his place upon the bench
and the jury filed 'n the seats filled
by Its members for two Ions weeks or
more. Senator Mitchell crouched In his
chair with trembling hand and suffused
face, waiting for the blow to fall.
Judge De Haven asked that the roll
be called, and each name fell like a blow
on the silence of the room. Then the
court asked the question. "Gentlemen,"
he said, "have you agreed upon a ver
dict?" R. L. Oliver, the grocer from Pendle

Honor." G. Stelner. of Salem, the fore
man, arose with the envelope In which
was sealed the verdict. The bailiff,
George Egbert, old In the service of the
court, passed slowly to the foreman and
from him to the court, while the eyes of
the defendant fastened themselves to the
missive as though to. pierce the covering
and wrest its secret sooner from It.
Verdict Opened and Read.
The big clock beat against the stillness
of the room while the tearing of the
envelope sounded harsh to the listeners
watching the face of the Judge. He
opened the page and read, there was a
quivering, fleeting, perhaps, of the eye,
and the verdict was passed to the clerk
to read. Captain Sladen pressed closer
to the light and his hands shook as he
studied the sheet. Then he read the

himself and succeeded.
On Monday next the attorneys tor ine
defense will make their request for a

upon receiving the verdict. On Monday
the defendant will face the court once
more to hear Its Judgment.
I.Ike his birthday. Senator Mitchell
celebrated the anniversary of his arrival
in Portland in the presence of a judge

he arrived In Portland. Then, as last

night hideous, but last night the noise
fell upon cars that heard not. the mind

How Salem Viewed Verdict.
SALEM. Or.. July i-(Speclal.) Xews
of the verdict of the jury in the trial
of Senator Mitchell was received in
Salem with expressions of surprise from
all. It has been the universal opinion
here that the jury would disagree. Not
even Mitchell's warmest friends have
expected an acquittal, for they admit ed
that the case was a strong one against
the Senator. Those who were most pro
nounced in their view that the evidence
warranted conviction believed that one
or two men out of the 12 would be won
by the pleas of Bennett and Thurston,
and In that way the verdict would be
made Impossible. Among the prominent
