John Wilton Cunningham, prominent among Western painters, died Thursday night at Camp Reliance, a health resort near San Antonio, Tex. The news of his death was received yesterday in a dispatch to his father, the Reverend. J.-W. Cunningham of No. Ml Locust street Although the news was received with much sorrow by the many friends of the young painter, his death was expected by those bo were dally Informed of his condition. Death waa due to an affection of the lungs, from tha effects of which Cun-nl .gham had been.a sufferer for some time. 1 As an artist probably no man in 8t Louis was In greater demand -In recent years. Early in life he showed bis adaptability for the brush, and at the age of U began his career. "Jack," as he was familiarly known by I his friends, waa born at Louisville In 186S. He came to SL Louis In 1875. He attended the public schools of this city and later took a course' In the art. department of Washington University, where it .was found he bad skill far above his classmates. , After finishing his course he did much work for local newspapers, and soon after took charge of the art department of, the Indianapolis Sentinel. He sought the highest in bis chosen profession, however, and later embarked for Paris, France, where he journeyed to complete his .education In the Latin .quarter. 'He spent five years In France. The second year there he earned special mention for his work, which was exhibited In the Paris salon. BIG DEMAND FOR WORK. This success made demand In. St. Louis for bis work, and a local firm for a time had all they 'could do to supply the trade. After he returned from Paris, Cunningham was engaged ,to paint the picture; which Is now an admired work, and which VICE CONSUL uninjured; - WARSHIPS SET SAIL Centlnaed Frasa Pasre On. some American naval demonstration In those waters. Reports also have come to the Government from the missionary interests of threatened destruction' of their property at Harpobt, and because of this Admiral Cotton will be allowed, to proceed with all his vessels to Beirut HAY POSTPONES VACATION AND RETURNS TO CAPITAL Oyster Bay, Aug. 28. President Roosevelt was Informed to-night of the Incorrectness "of the report that Vice Consul William C. Magelssen. at Beirut, 8yria, had been assassinated. The President expressed gratification that Consul Magelssen had escaped without injury from the assault of the would-be' murderer. He announced, however, that, no change at present would be made In the plans of this Government and. that the European squadron, which he last night ordered to proceed Immediately to Beirut, would eon. .Unueto Its ordered destination! it can be said that the President and Secretary of State Hay both regarded it Ead-visable. In view of the present state of im-. rest In Turkey, to have American war vessels In Turkish waters. TALKS WITH HAY. For several .hours to-day President Roosevelt and Secretary of State Hay were In conference at Sagamore H11L They .'discussed every suggested phase of the." situation In Turkey. At the conclusion of the conference Secretary Hay announced his In-tenUon of returning Immediately to Wash ington. t - SYRIAN IN ST. LOUIS SAYS I MOHAMMEDANS ARE GUILTY. . Josenh G. Adamle. vice president of-the Marionlte Benevolent Society, the jlpcal Syrian .organization, believes that the- attack on Vice 'Consul William C Magelssen at Beirut was the result of religious .troubles. . , 'Wblle the'Christlan population of Beirut exceeds that of the Mohammedana,' "said Mr..Adamle, "the local. Government is in the hands of the. latter," and I have, no doubt that tMr. Magelssen was murdered by thetMohamraedans.

It Is entitled, "The Maturity of SL Louis." A companion picture, "The Birth of St. Louis," also, at. the Planters Hotel, was done by Paul Cornoyer, Cunningham's classmate In Paris. Cunningham did much work at Jefferson City, where his paintings adorn the, walls of the Governor's mansion. His paintings of former Governor Lon V. Stephens! and wife, and those of "Governor and Mrs. Alexander M. Dockery, are considered masterpieces. His last touches with the brush we're made in the .completion of a three-quarter likeness, of Mrs. Lon V. Stephens for her St "Louis home, and which Is an exact reproduction of' the picture in the Statehouse at Jefferson City, While painting this picture, Cunningham, although harassed by -the encroachments of the disease which caused his death, kept bravely to his task. He was forced to lay down his brush many times in the course of the work, but he refused to leave the city until the picture was finished. On July 9, he departed, for San Antonio, and upon his arrival there took up his residence In a tent on the mountain side with other invalids. X letter recently received In 8t Jjouls, from Doctor E. A. 'Woods, son, of $be,Rev-erend C. C Woods of the. St Loui9.Cb.ris-tlan .Advocate, told of the. good 'treatment "Jack" was .receiving. Besides his . parents, he is survived by four brothers and' a- sister. They are: A. D., Charles A., and Edward H. Cunhnghara of St Louis'; William L Cunningham of Little 'Rock, Ark., and Mrs, W. 'D.

The Interment will be made In Bellefontalne Cemetery. REBELS ACTIVE Capture Neveska, Killing Two Hundred Turkish Soldiers, and .Build Earthworks. Salonlca, Aug. 28. About 2,000 Insurgents, now near Vodena, have been ordered to concentrate In the mountains of' Movihovo. They are expected to attack Tlkvesh and Bhtvgholi. In the evening of August 25 a force of Insurgents attacked Neveska, where 240 soldiers were stationed, 200 of whom were killed The, Insurgents have constructed earthworks. Seven battalions .of Turkish troops, which arrived at Neveska this morning, are now bombarding the defenses. . Sofia, Bulgaria, Aug. 28. The-general slt- "uation In the vilayet of Adrlanople continues alarming. The revolutionaries rfave destroyed all the Turkish posts along the frontier. ' The Autonomle says the Turkish com-rnander In the district of Seres has ordered his subordinates to kill and destroy every, body and. everything Bulgarian Immediately the insurgent bands appear. Tho Turkish population is fleeing toward Constantinople. Eight hundred men, women and- children,, have gone to Yasllakl, and the Turkish 'Government is arranging to send them to Asia Minor.. ' .A fierce fight has' occurred at Passakui, twentymiles'from Adrlanople, where three Turkish' battalions surrounded a body of insurgents. A second "band of rebels came to the assistance of their comrades, who thereupon broke-through the cordon, killing 1B0-Turks'. The 'Macedonian organization Is reported to be planning a big movement General Zontchieff is said to" be organizing a body of B.000 Macedonians to cross the frontier. - The Macedonian Committee has urgently-appealed to Prince Ferdinand to' show great er interest In the Macedonian situation, saying that If Macedonians, not soon liberated the position of , Bulgaria: will become exceed-' tngly critical.

An Innocent looking resolution introduced by Philip Ganz of tho Macon Republican, to the cfioct that the Committee on Croden, tlals have authority to revise the list of members of the .Missouri Press Association precipitated a sensation atthe morning 'session of the Missouri Association yester day. W.'o. L. Jewett of the Shelblna Democrat, speaking of the resolution, said: "I do not believe In euphemisms or subterfuges. I am in favor of taking the bull by the horns on questions that do not admit of equivocation. There is not a member present who does not realize the import of the resolution introduced by Mr. Ganz. at the-same time appreciating his action in not making it personal." "I move as a substitute to his resolution that the names of John A. Lee, of L L. Page and R. B. Speed, be stricken from the roll of membership of the Missouri Press Association. "There is nothing personal In my action, as at 'least one of the three I have always regarded aa my friend. This association cannot, however, after the uncontradicted statements that have been made concerning these men In the recent boodle disclosures, afford to further recognize them as mem bers of this organization." Jewell Mays of the Richmond Missourian, following Mr. Jewell, said that no member of the Missouri Press Association countenanced boodling or dishonesty In any ' -- ' T. T. WILSON Of the Tarklo Avalanche, president of the Missouri Press Association. form, but advised that further investigation be had be'f ora'flnal action be taken. W. T. Jenkins of the Platte City Land Mark,- took tho same view of the situation aa Mr. Mays. He' feared to do In a minute, he said, what he might regret the rest of his days. "NO. USE TEMPORIZING." Walter Williams of the Columbia Herald was not In favor of hasty action. "I, believe." he said, "In Justice between man' and man. Every man accused of a wrong has the right to be heard. The laws of the land provide for this, and courts are established for this purpose. "It is not necessary td say that I, as well as every member of this association, condemn corruption in public office, but, at the same time, let's give these men a 'show for their white alley. If, after investiga tion, the charges are established, we may ;take such action as seems fit "There may be other members of the as aociatlon who are guilty of moral wrongs not punished by tho law. It charges were preferred against any such here we would accord them a hearing. Let's give those against whom this resolution Is directed the same right, and, above all, strive to make the moral tone of this association what it should be." Mr. Williams then moved the appointment of a committee" of five, whose duty it should be to investigate the advisability of striking the names if the members mentioned from the rolls of the association and report so soon as the Investigation was completed. "Thero is no- use temporizing with such men aa John A. Lee and L L. Page." sold T. J. LIngle of the Clinton Democrat "The Missouri Press Association wants no members of this ilk. .They. cast odium upon our organization and deserve no consideration at our hands. I am In favor of extending none. Charges of corruption and bribery have been published broadcast against these men and not once have they denied even a single charge. Innocent men do not act this way. If such men as thesa are to be continued aa members of this association, I do not longer wish to be "associated with them., "I favor referring the resolution to the Committee on Credentials, with Instructions to strike from "the rolls such names as. are unworthy to be there., The names I have mentioned will be caught in the drag-net" COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE." The motion' of Mr. Williams prevailed, and Chairman Wilson appointed the committee of five. He named as' members of the .committee W. O. L. Jewett of "the Shelb'ina.Democrat, Euphrates' Boucher of the Mount Vernon Fountain and Journal. J.fB. Tucker' of;the, Parkvlile Gaxette, C. J.i Colden of the Maryvllle Forum, and B.

'"""il.?"6116 reaa a Paper on 'The "Responsibility of the Country Editor." Mr. Bell pointed out the hish calling of the editor, and the confidential relations he bore to the people, and the duty he owed to send nothing but a newspaper of high moral tone into the homes of his readers. Ben F. , Wood," of the Laredo Tribune talked to. the association upon "Up-to-Dato Advertising." The. practice 'editors have of leaving advertisements two and three years-old standing In their newspapers, he especially deprecated as slouchy and calcu- jaiea to give tne worst Impression of a paper. Not only as to the date of advertisements, but to the manner and style of display did Mr. Wood refer. ADVERTISING DISCUSSED. "Advertising from, "the .Standpoint o'f. a Country Merchant and .Newspaper Man" was discussed by, J. S. Morton of the Smlth-vllle Star. Mr. Morton cited Instances of wnut advertlslsk had done for two country merchants In hnitnvllie and the Impetus the individual efforts of these merchants in the advertising line had done for the town in which they' live, incidentally "showing how others in different lines of business had-profited because of tho enterprise of two up-to-date citizens. J. P. Tucker of the Parkvlile Gazette discussed "What the Pubiisner Owes the Advertiser." Among other profitable iaeas advanced by Mr. Tucker was tnat the adver-', user must deal squarely with the newspaper and his patrons in substantiating his PUDlished claims as to the quality of what be has In stock. If he wishes to get the full benefits of the money he puts in the columns of a newspaper to tell of his wares. ."A New Mode or Laughter," a satire In verse, was tho subject of a paper read by D. F. Thompson of the Elaon Eagle. It was cleverly written and referred cleverly to Missouri politics. L. r. ltoberta of the Memphis Democrat discussed "Does the Sensational Pay In the Country Newspaper?" Mr. Roberts took the position that to publish unverified items of news of a sensational character was detrimental to the standing of a country newspaper and harmful to readers. Tne publication of news of such nature except for good cause he thought harmful. "Politics In the Association" was the subject of the paper which W. R. Eowles of. the Greenfield' Advocate read. The Missouri Press Association, he declared, was not the place to exploit or to further the schemes of any person or set of persons, but to further the mutual Interests of the members of the organization and the members of the newspaper profession generally. "The Ethics of the Nowsyaper profession' was the subject of a paper read by B. E. Campbell of the Louisiana Times. Mr. Campbell discussed the duties of newspapers to themselves, to each other and to the public, These. are some of the extracts from his paper: . "The path of human duty Is not U-lumlnated with electric lights. "In these days of automobiles, trolley cars, railroads and rapid transit generally our civilization is progressing at the rate of sixty .miles per hour, but no line of human endeavor has been able to outstrip the newspaper, "The best lecturer In the world cannot compete with the morning paper. "1 believe the newspaper is more useful In a republican form of government than the Constitution. "The press Is the only trustworthy means of communication between the people and their official servants. "The newspaper scrutinizes the record of every one. who-would be 'a public servant so closely that a really base man Is seldom elected to office. The newspaper Is the calcium light which, when turned onto a public official, shows' up his crookedness as plainly-as the soubrette's wrinkles. . 'The splendid aatlboodle campalsrsi ml Joseph W.. Folic would not' nave been -passible had It not Veen for the work of .The St. Louis. Republic , "The modern newspaper' Is the greatest growth-of our civilization; "If wo country newspaper men cannot make Presidents we can at least assist In making a Governor. The various committees made final reports. W. R. Painter of the Committee on Credentials, reported the membership of the association as 1S1, the members being from seventy-five counties In the State, from' St Louis and Kansas City. The' Committee on Resolutions recommended and the association unanimously adopted the following resolution: SUPPORTING WORLD'S FAIR. "The Missouri Press Association wishes to express in strongest terms its appreciation of the Invitation of the Louisiana Exposi tion Company to meet In the Administration building, and for the hospitable entertain ment extended us during this meeting. We reueraie our pieuges oi support, and assure the 'Officials of the Exposition that in the future, as In the past, the nn r Mia. SOUri Will Use Its best efforts tn Inrmnnl, .the Exposition in every way within' Its power, we congratulate tnn Trnnvitrn., company on ine progress made In the ereat yicvttiauuii, ou v trui oi mo Construe- tlon work being now finished." The thanks of the association was also extended to the. Missouri Commission for the courtesies extended by It; to the rail- lu LUQ OUlgOlUK services, and to the street railway companies for the com-pllmentary transportation given to the editors during their- stay In St, Louis. The action of the World's Fair Cnmmiuinn i planning an exhibit of -Missouri journalism was. also commended and approved. The final action of the association was the election of officers to serve during the year. The following were unanimously elected: OFFICERS ELECTED. T. T. Wilson of the Tarklo Avalanche, president; W. D. Thomas of the Fulton Sun, first vice president; Euphrates Boucher of the Mount Vernon Fountain and Jour-' nal, second vice president; B. F. Wood of the Laredo Tribune, third vice president; J. M. Sosey of the Palmyra Spectator, recording secretary; K. M. White of the Mexico, Ledger corresponding secretary; W. L. Thomas of the School and Home, treasurer. T. T. Wilson, the new president of the Missouri Press Association, Is 42 years old and has been a Missouri editor since 1S93. when i he came to Tarklo and. purchased the' Avaiancne. xie cume 10 iuissoun irom iiio-. rado, where he published the Greely Sun.
