THIRD CLASS. to we QUEENSTOWN. May 10-The bodies Of 92 passenger of the Cunard Line Steamer Lusitania, who formed part of that pitiful handful of maimed, dead and dying brought ashore with the survivors of the disaster that followed the attack on the vessel by a German submarine last Friday, were buried this afternoon with services that have no parallel In history. Under a cloudless sky and to the strains of hymns played by British soldiers, they were laid at rest two miles behind Queenstown in a cemetery bursting with Spring greenery and hills flaming with gorse. The services at the graves began at 4 oclock and at 4:30 the sod of Ireland was being shoveled upon the coffins.

Queenstown never sensed the full horror of the Lusitania disaster until today, when the long stream of coffins began to disappear over the hill behind the town. Then came the realization that each of these cheap coffins held a body and that in the Atlantic, less than JO miles away, there were 1000 more all victims of a German submarine, marine. The townspeople stood hatless nearly all forenoon as the coffins were conveyed to the cemetery on carts. Moving Coffins for Hours. This process required hours and it was not until 3 oclock in the afternoon that the funeral procession proper left the Cunard offices at the waterfront.

There were only three bodies, one each In a hearse in this cortege, the other 89 already having been placed in the graves. With a British Army band playing Chopins Funeral March, the procession moved through the crooked streets, past the Cathedral, along an undulating country road. The cortege moved in the following order: A major of the Royal Irish Infantry on horse, five members of the Irish Constabulary and a group of Protestant churchmen. Then in black robes came 13 priests and behind them were the hearses, draped with British flags, to the reax of which trudged the mourners, among them several American'' survivors. The sailors from the steamer Wayfarer, which was recently torpedoed but was able to make port, came next, and behind them the members of the Corporation of Cork, headed by the Lord Mayor.

A company of Marines followed and then came sailors of the various British ships in harbor. The British officers, numbering a hundred odd, marched erect but slow. Next in line were Capts Miller and Castle, attaches of the American Embassy in London. Both were dressed in khaki uniforms. A party of British Naval officers and Admiral Sir Charles Coke of Queenstown followed them.

Most Rev Robert Browne, bishop of Cloyne, rode in a carriage. Piled Into Graves Two Deep. The procession was a full hour in passing into the cemetery. There soldiers guarded the wails as six other soldier pallbearers lifted the coffins from the hearses and set them beside graves. The three coffins rested beside separated graves.

The other 89 had previously been placed in three great pits 65 In one, in layers two deep, and J2 each in the other two. Just before the service started a woman rushed to the side of one of the huge graves and asked to have the coffin in one corner raised. This was done and, trembling, the woman bent over and gazed at the face within it. Then she shook her head and turned away. 'Apparently she had not found the one she sought.

Conducted by Bishop Browne, the Catholic service was first held, the choir bears bearing Incense, appearing from a cluster of elms and coming to the grave side. The Church of Ireland service, that is. the Episcopalian, followed and finally the Non-Conformist rites were performed. a8 the last words of this service were the muffied drums rolled and the familiar hymn, Abide With Me," swelled forth. No Americana Burled.

Sailors who had replaced the soldier pallbearers then lowered the coffins Into the small graves and simultaneously the earth began to thud on the coffins in all the graves. The crowd, nearly all with eyes wet, lowly left, some to take Jaunting cars, but most of them to trudge across the fields to the city. As they reached the crest of the hill immediately above, the harbor flashed into view, and in it the flag on every vessel fluttered at half-mast No Americans, so far as is known, were among those hurled today. A few of the dead were members of the Lusi Speaker Cox Refers to Grave Situation. Pres Hibben Hopes U.

S. Will Not Be Brought Into War. Free Rein for President, Alton B. Parkers Tlea. At tho opening of the session of the Massachusetts House of Representatives yesterday Speaker Cox made this statement: We meet today under unusual conditions.

Not since Fort Sumter was fired upon has public sentiment in this country been so Inflamed as It Is today. In such an hour I deem It my duty to appeal to you as representative men to act as such, not only In this chamber, but In the communities In which you live. Be leaders in molding public sentiment today. "The United States stands face to face with a most grave situation, more grave than perhaps we realize. It is the hour when all partisan feeling should be brushed aside, when men of all faiths and beliefs should stand as one man be hind President Wilson and testify to our confidence In him and to our belief that he will cause an official inquiry as to the responsibility for the slaughter of Innocent Americans on the high seas and that then he will perform his full duty.

But as men having influence In this old Commonwealth may I urge you to impress upon all your fellow-men tho danger that may arise from unbridled speech and from the substitution of passion for reason. It is an hour when each of us should show by speech and action that onr first duty lies in loyal and unfailing support of the Government In Washington." The Sneaker's remarks were enthusiastically applauded by the members. TEXAS LEGISLATURE PLEDGES ITS SUPPORT AUSTIN, Tex, May 10 Six resolutions today were introduced in the Texas Legislature on the Lusitania, one Sen- ate resolution suggesting severance of relations with Germany. The others simply expressed confidence in President Wilson. The Senate, In which five resolutions were Introduced, Including that for dip- lomatic severance, compromised by adopting a resolution pledging support to President Wilson "in any course he sees fit to take to uphold the dignity PLEADS THAT WILSON BE LEFT UNTRAMMELED YORK, 10 Alton B.

He alone must bear the heavy -r sponsiblllty of decision and greater there cannot be. No one knows it better than he. For both personal and patriotic reasons his best effort will be )ut forth. We all know this to be true.

iVhy, then, do we not let him alone? Why not give him time? There is certainly no need for hurry. On the contrary, here Is every reason for making haste slowly. "Have we forgotten the Maine? Can not see President McKinley, standin of with his back to the wall in the face the hoarse cry ofVngry men demanding war and his refusal to hurry? He saw duty to the people and performed it. I True, in the end war came but not as a result of passion and in the meantime the sentiment of the world had come to 'Llde I The President has information that we hav not. When to announce a de cision may be almost as important as what the decision shall be.

Let us all pray that those who will be heard be- pray cause they cannot act, may be induced to desist until the man chosen by the people to decide shall have performed his great task. HIBBEN AGAINST ENTRY OF AMERICA INTO WAR ST UOUIS, May 10 John Grier Hibben, president of Princeton University, in an address before the City Club here today, Whatever I intended to talk about, an seo that there 18 only one subject foremost in all of your minds. This is the ereat problem for our country to tlle vast war- What does the immediate future hold in store for America? I believe we have but one feeling, and that is that God forbid we be brought into war at this or any other time. He said that no matter whether this Nation was to have war or peace, the great need was that every strong man stand by his duty in business or professional life. Besides standing at our post, he continued, we must all hang together; all of us as Americans.

First Baptist Mens Club Speakers Condemn Sinking of Steamer. The sinking of the Lusitania was severely condemned by speakers at the meeting of the Men's Club of the First Baptist Church, Commonwealth av and Clarendon st, in the vestry last evening. Rev Frederick E. Wolf, assistant pastor, declared there can be no excuse for such destruction of life among people not engaged in the war. "The question is whether we, In this enlightened age, are to stand for this kind of warfare, he said.

It seems to me that the President must take drastic action to bring to Germanys attention the seriousness of the thing. Rev Mr Wolf was presenting the monthly news summary. Walter' L. Van Kleeck, a Boston lawyer, also sum-i ming up current news, characterized the sinking of the liner as "a crime beyond comparison in the history of the world, even by those of the Barbary pirate. William II wiir perhaps be known.

he declared, "as William the Pirate. The fact that the warning came as an advertisement from the German Embassy, he said, "shows conclusively that it was not the at of an irresponsible submarine commander. Germany must take the responsibility and probably will. This was only one of a series of serious incidents involving Americans. Americans on an American ship, flying the American flag, went down in the Gulflight.

We cant help wondering what that strict accountability the President talked about means, and whether it be Just a little tap on the wrist. Frank K. Linscott, Boston attorney and treasurer of the church, and James P.

Federal nor international law.

Mr Roberts declared it was well known that the Spanish-Amerlcan War Germany sold supplies to Spain, and the United States made no protest. Great Britain sold to the Confederacy in the i Civil War, he pointed out. John F.

She was bringing back to Europe 6100,000 contributed in the United States to the Belgium Red Cross Fund, but this money was in the liners safe and went down with the ship. The police have taken possession of 650,000 in cash, many drafts, and a considerable amount of Jewelry found on the dead. F.

J. Gauntlet of Washington, after sending messages to the American Ambassador at London and the State Department at Washington asking that representations be made to induce the authorities to resume the search for the bodies, has persuaded the Cunard Company to charter a powerful tug, which left this evening for the scene of the disaster. Last Effort to Identify Dead. Nearly 100 friends or relatives of passengers of the Lusitania arrived here early today from various parts of the British Isles. Among these was W.

L. Griffiths of the Canadian office in London, who desired to extend aid to the Canadian survivors. Past the coffins of the 64 unidentified dead filed weeping men, women and children, who took this last opportunity to seek the bodies of their friends. The entire forenoon was devoted to last efforts to make identifications. All the churches in Queenstown held memorial services this morning.

Assisting the Bishop of the Cathedral was Fr Cowley Clark of London, a survivor. Participating in the Protestant service was the Rev Mr Swan-Mason, chaplain of the battleship Ocean, which was sunk recently in the Dardanelles. "Old Glory Shrouds American Dead. Beginning at noon at Consul Frosts orders, tho bodies of the identified Americans, covered with the Stars and Stripes, were removed from scattered morgues and placed side by side in the Cunard Line offices on the water front. As they were earned through the streets by British sailors, the crowds uncovered.

Cheap brown coffins contained the bodies of Charles Frohman, Isaac F. Trumbull of Bridgeport, Conn; Mrs Henry D. Macdona of New York, Charles H. Stevens of Atlantic City, Dr F. S.

Pearson of New York, D. Walker Of New York, Dr Pearsons secretary; Mrs McBride, Hugh Compton, 17: C. T. Broderick of Boston, Herbert Ellis of New York and Mrs Spillman of Detroit. Mr Frohmans secretary arrived today to take charge of his employers body.

One of the survivors tonight identified the body of Mrs R. D. Shymer of New York, the American widow of an English nobleman -who subsequently married an American and had been living in New York. She was on her way to London, and her name probably will be added to the list of American dead. Affidavits for U.

S. Records. Affidavits made by Mrs Jessie Taft Smith of Braeevllle, Dr Howard L. Fisher, MaJ F. Warren Pearl and Robert Rankin of New York, are the only permanent records of the Lusitania disaster obtained by the Unitec States consul here.

All are brief and none reflects seriously upon the behavior of the Lusitanias crew, except what some witnesses consider the lifeboat fiasco. The affidavits of Mrs Smith and Mr Rankin were cabled to Sec of State Bryan, while those of Maj Pearl and Dr Fisher were sent to Ambassador Page at London.

Carranza Troops Said to Have Captured a Post In the Tampico Oil Well Region. WASHINGTON, May 10-Carranza troops have re-occupied Panuca, In the oil well region, near Tampico, according to advices from Mexico today to the State Department. The Villa forces which captured the town about 10 days ago, evacuated May 5 and the Carrafiza force marched in. Fighting continued, however, at Ebano, about 30 miles from Tampico. The Villa agency here issued a statement today denying the recapture of Panuca, but giving no details of the present situation.

The ringgleaders of these disorder, were let off leniently in court today, but were warned that further outbreaks would be punished rigorously. In dealing with the rioters the magistrate remarked it might be easily understood that in the first flush of the excitement following the torpedoing of the Lusitania the people, particularly those who had relatives on tLe ship, might have been beside themselves. It could not be stated too emphatically, however, that the Interests of the country demanded that such riots should not take place.

Some of the persons arrested for participating in the outbreaks were discharged and others were remanded for a week. WOMEN SMASH WINDOWS. Anti-German Feeling In Newcastle Vents Itself on the Pork Butchers Shops. NEWCASTLE, Eng, May 10-The sinking of the Lusitania and the manner in which the deed was hailed in Germany have aroused strong feeling against Germans being allowed to continue doing business in this city.

ofl. Time to Ro-tirof (Bur FUk) SUME CHANGES IN THE LISTS Not Much, However, to Cheer Relatives, Vanderbilts Friends Prepared to Abandon Hope. Relief Measures Started in New NEW YORK, May 10-Although a number of additional names of survivors of the Lusitania disaster were given in the latest revised list issued here today by the Cunard Steamship Company, there was little to cheer anxious relatives or friends, because a list of identified dead fciven out by the line contained the names of some who had previously been reported among tha -survivors. Relatives of Mrs Ogden H. Hammond of Bemardsville, abandoned hope that she was among the survivors today when they received a cablegram which indicated that her name, previously given as among the survivors, had been confused with that of Mrs F.

S. Hammond, a steerage passenger of Toronto, who was saved. Ogden H. Hammond was saved, but the husband of the Toronto woman was lost. Friends of Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt were prepared tonight to abandon hope that he might have been saved when the latest advices from Queenstown said that no trace of the young millionaire had been found.

Cunard Line officials were trying to trace the origin of a message from Queenstown signed by Mrs E. Blish Thompson of Seymour, Ind, who said she could find no trace of her husband. A previous message from her to T. B. Blish, an uncle of Thompson, purported to come from Mr Thompson and told of the safety of himself and his wife.

Relief Being Arranged. At the offices of Austin Baldwin Co, exporters, it was said today that all hope had been abandoned for Henry Bradley Baldwin, head of the firm, and Mrs Baldwin, who were first-cabin passengers. Fifty-eight cablegrams detailing efforts made to find Mr and Mrs Baldwin had been received by the firm since last Friday. The last one said that there was little doubt they had perished. When news of the disaster was received here the London branch of the company was notified and a steamer chartered to go to the scene.

The French Embassy in London, it was said, also sent a boat, and men were employed to patrol the coast of Ireland opposite the spot where the Lusitania went down to recover the bodies in case they were washed ashore. A relief committee named by Acting Mayor McAneny to raise funds for the survivors and relatives met today and arranged to send money to Englandfor those in dire need. Arrangements also will be made to furnish relief to those, left destitute in this country. A general appeal for funds will be sent out tomorrow, it was announced. Frohman Funeral Plan.

Arrangements were completed today for the funeral of Charles Frohman. The body will be cent from Liverpool Saturday aboard the steamship New York, due here Sunday, May 23. The funeral will take place May 25 and will be On that day all of Mr Frohmans theatrical enterprises in the United States and England will be closed. Lindon W. Bates, vice chairman of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, today received cablegrams from Ambassador Page, in London, and Chairman Herbert Hoover and other members of the commission abroad, extending condolences to Mr and Mrs Bates for the loss of their eon, Lindon Bates Jr, The American League to Limit Armaments, through its secretary, Hollingsworth Wood, today issued a statement saying that the Lusitanias fate "should rouse the American people to a realization of the results of a militaristic poli cy, where judgment has surrendered to so-called military knows no law.1 HOBSON AGAINST WAR AS RESULT OF TRAGEDY NEW HAVEN, May 10 la discussing the sinking of the Lusitapia Richmond Hobson of Alabama In a lecture at Yale today asked, "Should the United States declare war on Germany as a result of this tragedy?" Unquestionably no.

I believe we should have from the start taken the firm position with all belligerents that we would not tolerate the Infringement our rights as a neutral. We have permitted England to practically bar our ships from the high seas and extend her paper blockade to cover the world. We have permitted her to forbid our supplying food to the women and children and noncombatants In Germany, including many Americana We have permitted England to de Clare cotnmodiUeq contraband 9t war which never have been classed contraband of war. We have stood and witnessed Japans Infringement of Chinas sovereignty in contravention of solemn treaties and conventions which we have made. CARDINAL COUNSELS PEOPLE TO BE CALM BALTIMORE, May 10 Cardinal Gibbons, when asked today for a statement regarding the Lusitania, after a little hesitation, said he could be quoted as follows: "I feel the greatest sorrow and horror for this terrible tragedy.

The American people must be calm and prudent. It is best to leave the destinies of the Nation in the hands of the President and the Government. Popular sentiment is not a standard to be followed too hastily. The calm deliberation of the National Executive will tend to give the best solution of this question. SEA TRAGEDY SHOCK TO CARDINAL FARLEY NEW YORK, May 10 Cardinal Farley said tonight that he was stunned and shocked by the blowing up of the Lusitania.

The Cardinal stated that he deeply sympathized with the friends and relatives of those who lost their lives. He was deeply grieved to learn that the distinguished author and convert. Rev Basil William Maturin, Roman Catholic chaplain for Oxford University, had perished. He knew the English clergyman well. CHAMP CLARK WOULD MAINTAIN U.

S. RIGHTS BOWLING GREEN, Mo, May 10 Of course, all American rights should be asserted forcibly and maintained boldly. Champ Clark at his home here today allowed this new note to enter into the statement he made last night regarding the Lusitania. His statement follows: The duty of looking into and acting in the premises devolves on the President. He has sources of information better than we can possibly have.

For one, I am willing to leave it to him to do the proper thing and believe he will do it. Consequently It seems to me that the rest of us should for the present at least best discharge our duty by refraining from hasty expression of opinion. HOPES UNITED STATES WILL NOT ENTER WAR KINGSTON, Ont, May 10-The Daily Standard expresses the hope editorially today that the United States will not enter the present war as an active participant, declaring that the greatest service that the United States can render the Allies in this great war is to keep out of it, and adding that a declaration of war on her part would tend to demoralize the financial markets of the world. BONAPARTE FOR EXTRA SESSION OF CONGRESS BALTIMORE, May 10 Charles J. Bonaparte, Secretary of the Navy and later Attorney General under the Roosevelt Administration, believes that Congress should be called into extra session immediately.

The situation," he- said, so far as I can see, is in no wise complicated; on the contrary, its gravity lies in its simplicity. In the language of the sporting fraternity, we must either put up or hut up either we must show that we are ready, if need be, to vindicate the rights of our citizens by war or we must ouietly subside and let the belligerents do what they please. "GREATEST PROBLEM IN U. HISTjORY-FERRIS BIG RAPIDS, Mich, May 10-In response to numerous requests for an expression with regard to the Lusitania incident. Gov Woodbridge N.

Ferris at his home here today issued a statement on the subject as follows: This is not the time fer Americans to seek revenge; this is not the time for Americans to get insanely angry. This is the time for righteous anger, the time for patriotic thinking. The United States must relentlessly pursue the ends of justice. The sinking of the Lusitania presents to the United States the greatest p.ou-lem in her history. I ask the people of Michigan to prayerfully and courageously exercise patience and uphold the hands of President Wilson, knowing that he will act wisely and patriotically for the highest welfare of tne United States and to the end that International justice be maintained.

NOT MATTER FOR SNAP JUDGMENT, SAYS SLATON NEW YORK, May 10 Gov John M. Slaton of Georgia, ip a statement tonight regarding tha sinking of the Lusi tania, advised the American people to await full particulars of the incident before forming judgment. He made public a telegram he sent President Wilson this morning, in which he said he was in hearty sympathy with the Presidents conservative attitude.

Trumbull president, and Henry Trumbull, treasurer, of the Trumbull Electric Company, are planning to devote their large plant In Plainville to the manufacture of munitions of war for the Allies. The Trumbull brothers, both wealthy men, are wrought up over the death of their brother, who was treasurer of the American Cycle Car Company of Bridgeport, We are now figuring on the necessary machinery for the manufacture of war munitions which we will sell to the Allies, said Pres Trumbull today. Because of lack of time we have not been able to whip our plans Into definite shape, but we expect to make an announcement of our course In the near future. In the past we have received offers to manufacture rifle parts and "shrapnel at fancy prices. The ruthless killing of our brother has determined us as to the future.
