NASHVILLE, Nov. 10.—The boily or former Senator E. W. Carrnack, who was killed here yesterday in a street duel with Robin J. Cooper, w,an Bent to Columbia this afternoon. Impressive scenes at the Union station marked their departure. Members of tlie W. 0 T. t'., whose cause Mr. Carmack had ably championed, gathered at the station in numbers and as the casket was borne In joined In singing "Lead Kindly Light" and "Stand for Jesus." A brief address was delivered by Rev. Ira Landruth. Mrs. Carmack is thes fact that more than 3000 j The mcn undor lndlctment out of the oOOO citizens who east | Francisco Sabbia, Edward J.

The same proportion holds good along down ihe line of amendments submitted, except that in most instances the vote was even smaller. Only lu'OU out of 5000 men cared enough for the direct primaries to vote for the amendment, which makes such primaries possible, selected. Glenn E. outlined the prosecution's case, contending that the treatment accorded the workmen supplied to the Florida East Coast Company by the defendants was nothing short of slavery. The government would show, he declared, that In 1905, the men had been Induced by alluring advertlse- and a few of her closest friends were on the special car which conveyed the body, and the profusion of flowers was but another of the many testimonials of grief from hosts of friends and sympathizers. All during the morning hours a strong stream of callers had entered the nome of Frank handler, where the body lay. The funeral party reached Columbia about 4 o'clock this afternoon and \Pere by a large body of friends. Jhe body j was at once taken to the Carmack I home, where the funeral services will held tomorrow morning at "11 'o'clock. The tragedy was the absorbing topic In Nashville today and many sensational rumors were in circulation. MEXICO CITY, Nov. 11,—After an outlay of between $400,000 an;l $500,000 in a vajn endeavor to control the burning Dos Bocas oil \\clls, Pearson & Sons have decided to abandon the attempt. The oil Is (lowing at the rate of fourteen million gallons a day. Millions of dollars have been lost as a result of the fire, two men' have been suffocated by the gases and fifty soldiers used in fighting the fire are in the hospital as a result of poisonous gases. meroiis stories which gained clrcula- lion today among Carmack's friends and were cited by them as tending to show that the Coopers had previously determined to attack the former senator and were searching for him when the tragedy occurred. In addition to the statement made by Governor Pjit- if-r.Tm this morning, which Is one Of the few bits of positive evidence so far. the police are at work on reports (hat Colonel Cooper'sent written as well as verbal messages to Carmack, warning him to refrain on pain of death, from using Cooper's name in tut me editorials. Oarmack's race for the nomination as Democratic senator, in which he w;i« defeated by Senator Robert I. Taylor, and his more recent race for the governorship, in which he was defeated by Governor" Patterson, have served to draw his following In the state closer to him, and his tragic end „ ,. ,. lias spread distress and bitterness Robing. Cooper, who fired the fatal ] ;imotu , , nem . lt iB feare(] by 8onle tnat shot and was himself wounded, is under arrest at a local hospital. He is doing well, but his physicians stated today that the wound, which is near the collar bone, is in a dangerous place and complications are not unlikely.

In former years the men were dear friends, Carmack having declared in public print that Cooper was his benefactor. But the friendship had been replaced with enmity which was more noticeable since Carmack became the editor of the Tenneesseean following the late primary. Then the editorial attacks began which culml nated In yesterday's affair. H. C. HARNESS With J. W.
