They left Onawa ahortly before midnight

ARDEN, N. T., Sept. 11 "Pernicious
anaemia and oedema of the lungs" was the
chief cause of Edward H. Harrlmah's death
as officially stated tonight by Dr. W. O.
Lyle of New York, his physician, in the
death certificate filed at the towri clerk's
office at Highland Mills. There was no
mention of cancer, but It was noted that
the word "chief" was Inserted In the printed
form after the question "cause of death."
Popularly interpreted, anaemia la an im
poverished oondltlon of the blood; perni
cious anaemia, therefore, ia a severe form
of the disease. Oedema of the lungs, or
water In the lungs, tha Interpretation gen
erally accepted, might have resulted from
a variety, of causea.
Immediately after tha death certificate
was filed a burial permit was granted.
During the day Dr. Lyla had filed a certifi
cate with tha undertaker In which ha said
that Mr. Harrlman's death had resulted
from "heart failure superinduced by In
Test ot Death Certificate.
Dr. Lyla also states positively In the
certificate filed with the town clerk that
Mr. Harrlman's death occurred at 8:33
p. m. on September 9. The certificate,
which la attested by Walter Arerll Harrl
man, Mr. Harrlman's eldest aon, read In
"I hereby certify that I attended the
deceased from August 4. 1909, to Beptember
. 19G; that I last saw him alive September
9. 1909, and that death occurred on tha date
stated above at 1:35 p. m."
Following the foregoing is the eause of
death as given and the signature appended
William Gordon Lyle, M. D.. 0 West Fifty-eighth
street, N. T."
Mr. Harrlman's age at tha time ot Ms
death was given aa 61 year, 6 months and
IS days, and It waa eet forth that he had
lived In Arden for twenty-two years.
Avoids Hitch at FnaeraJ.
Dr. Lvle's action In amplifying? on the
certificate filed with tha undertaker
mooted over what might have developed
Into a hitch at the funeral. D. Spendleton,
acting town clerk at Highland Mills, bad
aid previously to the filing ot tha certi
ficate, that ha did not feel tha Dr. Lyle's
statement to tha undertaker was sufficient.
However, the amended certificate adjusted
Dr. Lyle In putting Into writing the time
of Mr. Harrlman's death at S:X p. m,, to
have dlselappated tha report whloh waa
accepted for a while that ha died at 1:30
p. m., but that tha news waa held back
until after tha close of the New York
v. ck exchange. The fact that cancer la
not mentioned also eolncldea with what Dr.
Lyle b Id last night when he denied tha
truth of a statement credited to a Vleness
specialist that he had diagnosed the fin
ancier's ailment while abdoar as cancer.
Nature of EHaeaae.
"Pernicious anaemia," which Dr. Lyle as
algns aa the primary causa of Mr. Harrl
man's death, is a disease whloh In nearly
ail recorded cases, haa resulted fatally. In
tha earlier atages of tha dlseaae tha symp
toms, lassitude, headache, palpitation and
hortneas of tha breath, make their ap
proach in ao alow and inslduoua a manner
that tha patient la unable to tlx tha data
of their onset and seldom seeks medical
advice until ha la Incapatated for mental
or bodily work. The patient Is usually
middle aged and there la nothing to account
for the disease.
The line of treatment generally followed
Includes the admlnstratlon of oxygen and
limiting the diet to milk, eggs, meat
Juices and other simple foods. In this
respect It will be recalled that there were
several retorts that oxygen was given to
Mr. llarrtman on various occasions. His
appearance and manner also upon the day
of his return from Europe seemed to agree
with the appearanoe of one suffering from
funeral Trala from New York.
Between fifty and alxty of the country's
most prominent men, including financiers,
lawyers, physicians and men well known
in the business world, will attend the
funeral of Edward II. Harrlman tomor
row. They will come from New York on
a special train, leaving Jersey City at z
p. m. At tit. John's Episcopal church, a
little stone chapel, which nestles in the
Reddening September foliage near In the
foot pf Tower Hill, they will Join the
group of mourners who will have accom
panied the funeral procession from Arden
rHYtral hours befqie the arrival of the
New York visitors a procession of a very
different kind will march alowly over tha
road leading to the uncompleted palace on
tliu bill. It will be compoaed of tha 600
wrokiuen employed on the Harrlman
tule. and at 9 o'clock In tha rooming they
will be permitted to file through the room
where lies the body ot the man of whom
one of them said today:
' At times he seemed a workman like
oui selves lust an older workman whom
a a itred a good deal about."
Workmen Uaard of Honor.
No precautions have been omitted to
protect the funeral cortege on Its way
down the hllL. Although the road haa been
smoothed to perfection, sixteen of tha moat
stalwart workmen were selected today to
aot as a guard of honor. They will walk
one on either aide of tha hearse and the
carriages containing the mourners.

damaged by atnoke and water, but the fire
did not aerlously Invade the lower floor.
There la every Indication that the thieves
started the fire among tha slock of the
glove company to cover up their tracks.
They evidently gained entrance through a
side window from the root of a low build-
lng adjoining, rifled the desk ot the
manager, Uuy Anderson, and then tapped

NEW YORK, Sept. 11. The Cook-Peary
controversy over the discovery over the
North pole continues to rage with unabated
fury. For the time being tha great achieve
ment Itself ia somewhat obscured. If not
lost, In the Intensity of feeling aroused over
the personal aspect of the two conflicting
claims. Commander Peary's latest dlspatoh
characterising Cook's claim aa "a gold
brick" has added fuel to tha already fierce
fire of charge and counter charge.
Peary'a latest challenge to Cook's claim
Is viewed with varying shades of feeling
by the supporters of the two men. It is
accepted by both sides as a direct charge
of the untruthfulness of Dr. Cook's narra
tive. It la noted also that Peary now adds
the statement that he haa proofs of hla
statement contradicting Cook. It Is also
noted that his intention to present this
proof is "when he (Cook) makea a full
statement ot his Journey over hla signa
Peary also requires that this written
statement from Cook shall . be made "to
some geographical society or other reput
able body." In this connection Copenhagen
dispatches have already stated that Cook
was ready to submit hla claim to the coast
and geodetic survey at Washington or other
sclentlfio body if Peary would do the aame
Par see Aroaaes Ire.
The use of the contemptuous phrase
gold brick" In referring to Cook's claim is
looked upon by the champions of Dr. Cook
as particularly offensive. They regard It
as not only a challenge of his veraolty, but
as one of such serious Import In reflecting
upon Cook's methods that It calls for
immediate substantiation from Pear'
Whether he will give this substantiation
at once la open to doubt. In view of hla
statement that tha proof would, be pre
sented when Cook made a full statement
over hla signature to soma geographical
society or other reputable body. ,
Commander Peary haa. now taken action
as a naval officer, aa well as an explorer,
by reporting officially to tha president. . to
tha Navy department and to the eoaat
and geodetlo survey at Waahlngton that
he reached the pole April 4, 1909.
These official reports are In Una with
arguments presented at the hearing of in
junction ' proceedings yesterday over tha
question ot publishing Peary'a personal
narrative, when it waa maintained by
James M. , Beck, former assistant attor
ney general ot tha United States, that
Peary's achievement constituted a his
torical fact accomplished . by a United
Statea naval officer on a public mission.
Weleome for Cook Planned.
The Arctic Club ot America further per
fected Its plana today for meeting Cook
on his arrival. A large steamer having a
capacity for carrying 2,000 people haa been
chartered to go down the bay to meet the
explorer on his arrival on the Oscar II.
Many distinguished persons, Including the
chief officials of Brooklyn and representa
tives of scientific and geographical bodies,
will be Invited. Mrs. Cook also will be
a guest on board the steamer which goes
to greet Dr. Cook. ' A flotilla ot steam
craft, yachta, tugs, etc.. Is also preparing
to move seaward and greet the Oscar II
on its approach.
The plan Is to bring Dr. Cook to the land
lng at New York, whence he will proceed
across the city to Brooklyn, where a rap
turous repectlon Is awaiting him. The bor
ough will be decorated and a huge floral
arch will apan tha street approaching his
modest home on Bush wick avenue.
The plan for Peary's reception when he
arrives Is also being elaborated by his ad
herents, but details are In abeyance, owing
to the uncertainty of the time at which
he will reach New York. He was to have
reached Sydney today, but delay at Battle
Harbor will put off the arrival at Sydney
until perhaps the middle of next week. His
dispatch to hla close friend, Mr. Bridgman,
fixes Wednesday as ths time of his ar
rival at Sydney.
There a great reception is awaiting him
by tha people of Nova Scotia and there
also Mrs. Peary and Mr. Bridgman, with
scores of newspaper correspondents are
anxiously awaiting him. Two aeagolng
steamers have been chartered to go out
from Sydney to meet him. one of them
being a government steamer offered by
the Ottawa atuhoritles. The reception at
Sydney may delay Peary'a departure by
rail from that point until next Thursday
or Friday, when he will probably be en

Bsptsmber 11, 1908.
The mayor's proclamation certainly Is be
ing observed, for Omaha Is a most thor
oughly decorated and Illuminated city. It
Is redolent of all the colors of the Eagles
and Ak-Sar-Ben. and at night brilliant with
lights of all these colors. Business houses
and streets already are gayly attired and
there Is more to come. In all the bunting
that hangs from buildings the stars and
stripes have a conwplcuous place.
Last night the street Illumination waa
turned on In full flare for the first time,
and It made a beautiful spectacle. From
the Welcome arch at Eighteenth and Far
nam streets, on down Farnam to Tenth,
and thence to the Union and Burlington
depots, these lanes of light extend. The
Welcome arch was a hlng of beauty in
Itself. In its center perched a large eagle,
with wide-spread wings, his eyes glowing
like balls of fire, and his huge, majestic
; body lighted up until for blocks ha could
i be seen and admired, and looked natural
I ..nmmh to scream. The order's emblem
was completed and the letters under the
word welcome bade tho thousands of
Eagles from near and far to come and par-
take of all this hospitable Gate City of tha
west had to offer.
The feeling that Omaha was the center
of 80.000 Eagles for a week sana aown upon
people last night who did not realise before
the full magnitude and algnirioanoe oi mis

J. F. Palletler, chief ot the Kansaa City
fire department; James Cheetan, president

the order and one of its founders.
Grand Chaplain Cllne Is mentioned as
one of the three prominent candldatea for
grand worthy vice president of Eagles. He
was approached concerning nis canumair,

ponent of Senator Grady, haa been
stirred up considerably by the reports that
he stood no show In the race.
He declares he is out for the highest

that he la going to come very near to
