ALL BRITAIN MOURNS
Funeral Will Be Attended by
Royalty From All Parts
LONDON, May 9. All England is o
mourning over the death of King Ed
ward VII, municipalities, churches and
societies of all sorts have met to pass
eulogies on the late monarch and oi
ler good wishes to his-successor. Th
courts and Business houses have been
closed; sports and entertainments of
every type have been dropped; so
ciety has cancelled Its engagements.
The whole kingdom. Indeed, is a
nation in mourning. Ireland has fop
gotten her political grievances against
her sister isle. The Irish papers
speak kindly, appreciatively, of King
Dying Is Sudden.
King Edward died almost before his
subjects had begun to realize that he
was seriously ill. He was taken sick
a week ago. After, three days a seri
ous complication began to devalop.
The fourth day his physicians issued a
bulletin that stirred the whole nation
to Its depths. On the sixth day the
King was dead.
The shock to Great Britain and to
the world had been tremendous, not
In a national way, for the death of
the King has been discounted in the
markets for many years, but to the
Empire's sentimentality. King Ed
ward was sincerely loved throughout
the length and breadth of England's
The King died from pneumonia at
11:45 the night of May 6, at Bucking
ham Palace, and at the same mo
ment the crown and scepter of , the
Empire of Great Britain passed auto
matically to his son and heir. Prince
George of Wales, now George V.
Nearly all members of the King's
immediate family were at his beds'de
when the King died. Just before the
end came, the royal patient rallied
and spoke weakly to those about htm.
"I know it Is all over," he said, "but
I think IV- done my duty."
Royalty Coming to Funeral.
More ioya! personages are expected
to come to Ingland for the funeral
than follow? d Victoria's hearse. The
German Emperor is certain to attend,
both because he is head of a neighbor

The Kings of Belgium, Spain and
Portugal, and possibly King Victor
Emmanuel of Italy, also, will be pres

world, as well as the PoDe and the
Presidents of the United States,
France and other republics, have tele
graphed condolences to the Dowager
Queen and King George V.

WASHINGTON, D. C., ITEMS
WASHINGTON. D. C Forty-five
Senators, all from the conservative
or "regular" wing of the membership
are said to have Joined In the move
ment to formulate a new Administra
tion legislative program.
As utterly impossible for the con
servatives to reach, the regulars have
classed Beveridge, Bristow, Clapp.
Cummins, Dolliver and La Follette.
The men on whom the regular Re,
publicans are still working, and who
will receive the attention of President
Taft, Include Bourne, Dixon, Gamble
and Nelson. All of these men have
voted with the insurgents from time
to time. They have refused, however,
to be called Insurgents, and have been
found In the ranks of the regulars at
least half of the time.
Insurgent Senators say they will
not be swerved from their course on
the railroad bill, no matter what tac
tics are pursued by the conservative
Republicans. This announcement was
made at the conclusion of an insur
gent conference by Senator Cummins
The House rejected the Washburn
amendment to the railroad bill, pro
viding that section 12, prohibiting
acquisition of competing lines, "shall
not affect any leases of railroad prop-
j erty made prior to January 1, 1910,
for a period of 20 years." The Adam
son amendment to the same section,
exempting any railroads entirely with
in one state, was defeated, 121 to 144.
The House then struck out the entire
section 12 of the railroad bill, pro
hibiting the acquisition of the stock
of competing lines. The vote was
131 to 128.
The prospects for a postal savings
bank bill of some sort are Improving.
For four days the Hose committee on
postoffices and post roads had the bill
under informal discussion, and It if
said that from' the great variety and
volume of views expressed, there , Is
beginning to appear a possible ground
for agreement. Just what this basis
may be it is not yet easy to predict
The sundry civil appropriation bill,
the second largest of all the appr

tee on appropriations. The total rep
resents a cut of $16,650,000 from' the
estimates submitted to the committee.

WILL SWING THE AX
Subordinates Must Give Loyal
Support if Secretary Stays
WASHINGTON. D C.- After kv
ing been dramatically interrupted bv
Special Agent H. T. Jones, the intt
mate friend of L. R. Glavls. who Indl
rectly questioned a statement made by
the witness. Secretary Balllnger at
the afternoon session served notion
that If he continues as the head oi
the Interior Department there was go
ing to be some more "snake killing,"
and that it will be kept up until the
last snake was dead.
"If I am to continue to conduct the
affairs of the department," said the
Secretary, "It will be with the loyal
support of every man In the depart
ment" The witness declared emphatically
that when he appeared before the
House committee on public lands on
March 3, 1908, to advocate the Cale
bill for the development of Alaskan
coal lands, which bill he himself bad
drafted, he did not have the Cunning
ham claims In mind.
In connection with a question as to
Glavls' course in one phase of his
work, Balllnger digressed to denounce
his former field agent
, "It was not the proper course for
him to go over the heads of his su
periors to further an attempt to ruin
me," he declared. "He should have
gone to Schwartz, whom, be says, he
trusted, Instead of Joining a conspir
acy to ruin me before the country.
That shows the dlstlngenuousness of
the 1 man.".
