experiencing difficulty In breathing. Dr.
Jung, bis physician, was at once sent for
and he decided upon a consultation with a
local physlciau. In tbe meantime telegraph
ing for Dr. Osier of Baltimore. In bis
lead cam Dr. Thayer of Johns Hopkins
university, arriving about o'clock this
morning. The patient's pulse war still
good and when Dr. Thayer left the em
bassy at S o'clock for Baltimore the am
bassador waa resting so comfortably that a
cablegram waa sent to bis son-in-law, Mr.
Bromley, In London, that there was no im

Soon alter t o'clock a distinct weakneas
of tbe heart developed and bis pulss began
.to collapse. He died so peacefully that It
eurprised even bis -physician, who feared
that the aathmatlo affection would prove
'troublesome when the end came.
Aa soon as It became generally known
that Lord Pauncefote waa dead flags were
half-masted over tbe different embassies

where the visiting Frenchmen who have
come to witness the Rocbambeau status un

, A FEW FACTS.
It patent medicines are not almost given away In the next few weeks, then we
re not prognostlcators. This is how It happened: Tbe Omaha combine of re
tail druggists have so utterly failed in their effort to prevent us from buying goods
ever since last September, that tbey have called the chairman of the executive
aommlttee of tbe National Association of Retail Druggists out here from Phila
delphia to TRY and help them. lie called on us lasfr week and wanted to know if
we would conalder, the proposition of Joining the association and raising the prices,
holding out the bait to us that we could still PRETEND (o be CUT PRICE
DRUGGISTS, and tht the PEOPL8 would, never know the difference. We po
litely told Mr. Holllday this chairman that there were enough PRETENDERS In
the drug business in Omaha and that the hold-up business was not our style that
we would not Join the association, but was perfectly satisfied to run our own busi
ness, and every other merchsnt hsd the same privilege, ao far as we were con
cerned. He looked wise and ssid he was very sorry, but that be was out here for
business and thought he bad a scheme whereby, with the aid of tbe ether Omaha
druggists, he thought tbey could FIX IT so that it would be Impossible for us to
buy any more goods, and then we would either hive to come In or close up shop.
We told him all right, go ahead; we certainly would not have a thing to do with
their trust gan& and would abut up shop. If that was the only alternative. Now.
we are not out begging sympathy from tbe public; that is not our style, either
but If the people of this comjnunll wish (o aslp this combine la the'.r fight
against us, all we have to say is. patronise them. Their new scheme Is to cut
the price so low that we can't follow, but w never have taken a back acat yet, so
crack ahead, Mr, Omaha Drug Trust, chairman and all, and we all be here on
16th and Chicago to aee tbe finish! We busted your hot atr outfit once and can do
It again. Now watch and ae It we are a prognostlcator.

Issue of one of the most ancient of British
families, whose history is found in the
Educated aa a lawyer, his governmental
services began in Hong Kong as attorney
general in 1&65, and after much valuable
colonial ezperlenoe, he came to Washing
ton In 1889, first as minister and afterwards
as first ambassador. His service here has
been one unbroken record of successful di
plomacy. The Bering sea negotiations were among
bliS earliest works of Importance and it
was his familiarity with that difficult sub
ject that led to his selection by the foreign
office for the post at Washington.
' Forerunner of Ureal Work.
The arbitration treaty negotiated with
Secretary Olney was tbe forerunner of the
great work accomplished at The Hague,
and -It may be said that It embodied some
of the most important principles of the
great general convention regulating arbi
tration afterwards framed by The Hague
conference. Tbeu came a number of reci
procity treaties and arrangements Involv
ing a vat amount of study and work, all
of whloh were perfected as far as the ex
ecutive brsnch of our government could
co-operate with Lord Pauncefote.
Boon after Secretary Hay assumed office
Lord Pauncefote began the task which ht
himself regarded as the greatest accorap
llshmeut of his busy life, namely; to for
ever set at rest the questions growing out
of the old Clayton-Bulwer treaty, and be
entered with energy negotiations, tbe re-
emit of which waa the framing of the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty, recently ratified.
For these valuable aervlces the British
government did Lord Pauncefote the honor
to three times extend the term of his
sorvlce at Washington, which would other
wise have ceased when be attained the age
of 70 years.
Hay Takes Official Action.
Immediately upon being notified of the
death of Lord Pauncefote Secretary Hay
went to the Wblte House and after a short
conference with the president proceeded to
tbe British embassy, where he made a for
mal call of condolence as the personal rep
resentatlve of the president, preliminary to
just completed for the edification
of Omaha's men and women bowlers.

the call which the president himself waa to
make later In the day. Then returning to
the State department Secretary Hay dls- I
patched the following cablegram:
DEPARTMENT OF STATE. WASHING- '
TON. May 24, 1902. The Marquis of Una-
owne. London: Permit me to express my
dp sympathy and sorrow at the death of
Lord Pauncefote. His majesty's govern
ment has lost a most able and faithful
servant and this country a valued friend.
The ambassador and his family expected
to sail this month for England, going
thence to the German spaa, where the am
bassador was to take tbe mineral bath.
In March reports came from England
that the ambassador was about to be re
lieved of his post here, and that Mr. Lyttle
ton had been chasten as bis successor, but
these were promptly denied and It was
made apparent that Lord Pauncefote' j
tenure at Washington lay entirely within
his own wishes and, moreover, that the
British government preferred that he
ahould not quit the post where he had
rendered such splendid services.
, All Embassies Informed,
By noon all of tbe embassies and lega
tions were Informed of tbe sad event. Ex
pressions of sincere sympathy and regret
were heard on all sides and racial preju
dices and national differences were swept
away as tbe representatives of the other
great nations of the world at the capitol
spoke In terms of deep sorrow and high
tribute of the deceased ambassador.
Tbe office of dean of the diplomatio corps
at Washington now devolves upon Mr. von
Holleben, the Oerman ambassador and upon
him will fall the duty of directing the dip
lomatio body's action - on this occasion.
Tbe entire diplomatic corps will attend ths
funeral In a body.
The late Lord Fauncefot will have a
state funeral. Mr. Ralkes, the secretary

upon Assistant Secretary Hill to advise
with him respecting the funeral arrange
ments and finally these were entrusted to
Dr. J. Hill In their official features. A
tentative arrangement hat been made.

before being put Into execution. In brief

At first It . wss suggested that the re
