leaving San Francisco February 20, Mr.
and Mrs. McPherson enjoyed the sea trip
greatly. Owing to the bubonic plague
scare In Kan Francisco, they found all
the Mexican porta closed against vessels
from the Bay City, and the first stop
was made at Mazatlan. From there they
went to Ohampertco. Guatemala, and
thcnoe to Guatemala City, the capital of
the Republic and official residence of
president Cabrera. In that place they met
if veral American acquaintances, includ
1 ng Mark L.. Elson. the rtrst man to send
out the news of the recent volcmnic erup
tion, which wroujtht great destruction.
At the time the McPhersons were there,
Mr. Kdson predicted the volcano, and it
was but a short time after tfley left that
i'ahrera ConThicd Co IkaIaeo.
While in Guatemala Oily, the McPher
son soon learned that a plan was on foot
to assassinate President tahrera. While
out riding one day they attempted to pass
the President s residence, but were met
by armed guards who ordered them to
turn back. Kvery effort was being made
to protect the President from the hands
of those who wished to kill him. He was
ktpt within his palace ail the time, al
though Just prior to that date "he had
been taking active part in various cere
monies, In which Americans. Germans and
Hritsh subjects participated. During these
exorcises the wily Cabrera took a position
where he was surrounded at all times
by the foreign element and great throngs
of school children, so that tt was Impos
sible to shoot him without murdering
others and brlnclng on international com
plications. It waa but a few days after
the McPhersons left that the futile at
tempt to kill Cabrera occurred.
From Guatemala City Mr. and Mrs.
MiPherson Journeyed to San Juan del
Snr and to Hoduras and San Jose.

Funeral Oration Over a "Dead Game Sport
Unique Obsequies in a Variety Theater, Back of a Nevada Saloon, With a Remarkable Sermon.
RAWHIDE. April 15. Half shielded
under an oil-cloth blanket, lodges
in a common express wagon, the
casket of Riley Grannan was carried re
cently down dusty Rawhide avenue and
along Nevada street from the tented es
tablishment of the camp's undertaker to
an Improvised memorial chapel, a variety
theater at the rear of a saloon.
There congregated a throng in silks and
corduroys, women of metropolitan cos
tumes, miners covered with hih-grade
grime, prospectors sun-tanned, brokers,
hankers, merchants, promoters, owners
of saloons, bartenders, gamblers, round
ers. Tears that were shed dropped from
the eyes oT all. Again, as always in i
mining camps, class forgotten. All men i
A solemn hush came down upon the lit

while listening to doubtful wit from the
coarse Jesters, men and women, on the
variety forum. Hovered about the bier
of Riley Grannan. race-track plunger of
National renown, waa as solemn a group
of sincere mourners as ever gathered to
pay final tribute.
Solos were offered by Mrs. Hedricks,
0ice an actress of wide fame, now wife
of the editor of a Rawhide dally paper,
and by Jack Hinea, miner of Alaska, and
leaser o Rawhide. Punctuations came
with resounding blasts from a score of
mines on the mountains Just above. Sa
loons were closed and the streets were
silent throughout the service. At its
end a solemn cortege trudged, with the
remains, destined by automobile to travel
?o miles to J?churx. there to go aboard
the oars to Riley's brother in Kentucky.
L'nique beyond experience and dramatic
beyond compare was the eulogy pro
nounced by H. W. Knickerbocker, once
a clergyman, then a mine-operator of
Goldricld. later a Rawhide pioneer.
Hardly orthodox, but wholly in keeping
with the scene an! the mute desires of
the dead, was the orator's appearance.
The once pulpit exponent stood beside
the lily-laden bier, his eyes bedimmed
with tears, his voice choked with a fra
ternal emotion, lie shod in the the high
boots and clothed in the rough garb of
a miner. A stenographic report of the

Arriving on the Isthmu of Panama,
conditions were found to be very good,
as to health, sanitation and food.
Activity on the canal zone by our own
Government, says Mr. McPherson, is
great. They are taking out the dirt at
a rate of cars a train every 15 mln

advantage of the Chagres River, a
stream that flows through the none,
and have run lt waters into an inland
lake, thereby removing what was once
thought by French engineers to be an
insurmountable obstacle In cutting the

views. If these run counter to yours, be

see the ambitions .of man. defeated, when
I see him struggling with mind and' body
to accomplish his end. when I see his
aim and purpose frustrated only by avfor
tuitou combination . of circumstances
over which he can exrt no control, when
I see his outstretched hands about to
grasp the flag of victory, and to seize in

a tale told by an idiot, full of sound,

bubble that but reflects the shadow of Its
environment and is gone, a mockery, a

hold. Riley Grannan fully exemplified i
the philosophy of those fugitive verses, ,
'It's easy enough to be happy, when life
goes along like a song: but the man worth
while is the man who will smile when
everything oes wrong: for the est of the
heart Is trouble, and it always comes with
the years: and the smile that is worth
the homage of earth is the emile that

"There are those who wilt condemn
him. They believe that today ne is
reapif.g the reward of a misspent life.
They are those who are dominated
by medieval creeds. Them I am not
addressing. They are ruled by the
skeleton hand of the past. They fail
to see the moral side of a character
lived outside their puritanical ideas.
RiK'y Grannan's g-oodness was not of
a type that reached its highest mani
festation in ceremonious piety. It
found its expression in the handclasp
of friendship. It found Its voice in
the word of cheer to a discouraged
brother. His were deeds of quiet
charity. His were acts of manhood.
"Riley Grannan lived In the world
of sport. My words are not minced,
because I am telling- what I believe
to be true. It was the world of sport,
sometimes of hilarity. sometimes
worse. He left the impress of his
character upon us all and through
the medium of his financial power he
was able with his money to brlgbten
the. lives of all who knew him. He
wasted" his money, so the world says;
but did It ever occur to you -that the
men and women of suoh class upon
whom he wasted it are yet men and
women? A little happiness brought
Tito their lives means as much to them
as happiness carried Into the lives of
the straight and good. If you can
take one ray of sunshine Into the
night-life and thereby carry a single
hour of happiness, you are a bene
factor. Rilty Grannan did this.
"God confined not his sunbeams to
the nourishing of potatoes and corn.
Hi? scattering of sunshine was prodi
gal. Contemplate. He flings the
auroral beauties round the cold shoul
ders of the north. He hangs the
quivering picture of the mirage above
the palpitating heart of the desert. He
scatters the sunbeams like shattered
gold upon the bosom of a myriad of
lakes that gem the robe of nature. He
spangles the canopy of night with
star jewels and silvers the world with
the reflected beams from on high. He
hangs the gorgeous crimson curtain
of the Occident across the sleeping
room of the sun.
"God wakes the coy maid of the
morning to step timidly from her bou
doir of darkness, to climb the steep of
the Orient, to fling wide the gates of
morning and to trip o'er the land
scape, kissing the flowers In her
flight. She arouses the world to
herald with their music the coming
of her king, who floods the world with
effulgent gold. These are wasted sun
beams. Are they? I say to you that

Eren Members of Group Bank Act

Are Surprised at Magnitude
of Latest . Demand.
BERLIN. April 28. (3pclal.) The
group of banks under the auspices of 4he
German Imperial Bank and the Prussian
State Bank, which act as the financial
agent of the German and Prussian gov
ernments, announces that the financial
requirement of the F:mpirc will neces
sitate the immediate Issue of consols to
the amount of Jfi2.500.000. while Prussia
will require SlKMTO.OOa Both issues will
be of the 4 per cent type snd are not to

The loans have been Issued for subscrip

syndicate has taken over tVO.oiiO.'M) worth
of new Prussian 4 per er.t bonds, which
are to be redeemable after live years.
These bonds, however, are not to be Is
sued for public subscriptions.
Thus, together with the convertible loan
of H5.ooo.ono issued by the Prussian gov
ernment In January, the total amount of
new loans issued by the Bmplre and
Prussia this year amounts to considerably
The Bourse and even the members of
the group of banks have been not a
little surprised at the magnitude of the
new issue, since it had been generally
assumed that only abont one-third of
the amount' which Is now notified would
actually be required.
Prussia Gets Most.
An Interesting point In connection with
the present issue Is that, contrary to all
precedent, Prussia's requirements are
nearly twice as large as those of the em
pire. This circumstance Is chiefly due to
the very considerable Increase of expen
diture which will be Incurred under the
Polish expropriation law and, the compre
hensive scheme for the extension of the
Prussian state railway system. Although
the greater part of the loan Is to be de
voted to remunerative state enterprises,
and although home Industries will be the
chief beneficiaries. It Is felt that the Inor
dinate increase In the national debt Is
bound to strengthen the agitation for a
return to more economical methods of
The syndicate responsible for the loan
comprises between 20 and 30 of the lead
ing German banks, and is controlled by
the German Imperial Bank and the. Prus

taking over the loan at 98 2-6 per cent,
the margin of profit with the price of

A reduction of 1-6 per cent will likewise
be allowed to banks by the syndicate. It
Is generally expected that the consols
will find a ready market both at home
and abroad. The greater part of the new
Prussian 4 per cent bonds, which are not
to be issued for subscription, will be re
tained by the banks themselves, but? a
small proportion may be -assigned by
them to their own customers.
It is likely that the rapidity with which
both the empire and the kingdom, which
is Its backbone, are piling up debt In time
of peace would meet with more opposition
were it not that the distribution of seats
for the Imperial Reichstag and the anti
quated suffrage for the Prussian Diet
