--Klnn Kdwnrds pacifying influence In

Of deep irgiet to advocates of universal
peace. This appear In a ststement given
by Andiew II. Humphrey. general secretary
of the American Peace nnd Arbitration
league, of which former Senator James B.
Mrf'renry Is president, former President
Roosevelt, honorary president, and which
number among Its member Admiral
Dewey and ninny of the best known mrn
In the country.
Andrew H. Humphrey, general secretary,
V "That the dealh of King Edward should
f cause the. world-wide sorrow tiiat Is ap
parent cannot be surprising when It Is
remembered lion well he earned the title
cf f" Kdward. the Peacemaker." which has
ben conferred upon him by universal
agreement. Ills death Is a great loss to
tho movement fort universal peace. No
ether ruler in Kurope believed In It more
sincerely. III? lifelong training tihder Kng--land's
great Queen Victoria especially
fitted him to be a peacemaker. His Inter
est In tha movement has been so manifest
and his success and Influence and the
amicable setilement. of Incidents of a
threatening; nature will ihihc him to be
missed In the pence councils of the near
Wetback for the Program.
"King Hdward'a death, coming at this
particular time. Is In a sense a setback for
the program of the American Peace and
"Mr. Roosevelt, who is one of the honor
ary vice presidents of this league, might
hava been expected to Invite some exchange
of views relating to the proposition to In
1 rest th (prlo court at The Hague for
the present with tho powers to be vested
In th International cnurt of arbitralon
p which It Is expecrd will lie created at tha
x , third International peace, conferenca In 1315.
"Of course It I Impossible to say Just
how far man In'the Ring's position could

question an this, but i think It Is tolerably
well known that It Is oh Of the propo.l-
tlona In tha direction of International peace
X that Interested King Kit ward deeply,
7 "What will be the attitude of Kngland s
new ruler concerning the peace question Is
problematical. He has seen active service
along the stern lines of a naal officer's
career, but he has not been In that close
and sympathetic touch with various classes
of men which made King Edward a broad
minded, far seeing and diplomatic man.
He la a mail of reserve, lacking elements
that made his father popular, and It Is pos
sible that In his Intercourse wjth other
sovereigns he may not tie able at all times
A to Inspire Unit cordiality that enabled King
( Kdward to pour oil on the troubled waters.
Nevertheless I dont' think the change of
rulers will affect the peace .movement ad
versely. "King George V derived from his Illus
trious grandparents, Victoria and Albert,
and from his una father, a rich Inheritance
of qualities that make much for the up
lift of humanity and tha richest among
them la an Innate lovu and desire for
peace." ' '

of personal loss In the passing away of
King Kdward," ald Hon, Joseph H.

a'maii he was ev en more Interesting
V th.it' na a monarch and that Is saying n
" rat deal, for no king ever was more
sincerely loved by his own subjects or
more admired by the people of other na
tions. As a man he was Intensely human,
and when he put off his royalty, as he
delighted to do when opportunity off t red,
and met people In an atmosphere mote
free than that of the court, he Mas one of
the most charming of men, though never

HIS ACTION CREATES SENSATION
Mr. Rranriels tine I retinent Clashes
rtlth the Witness, Who ate
He Will Kill More
WASHINGTON. May 7.-The cross-ex
amination of Secretary Bslllnger by Mr.
Brandeia was progressing with but mo
mentary renewals of the frequent hitter
clashes of yesterday before the Rallinger-
Plnchot Investigating committee this morn
ing, when there developed the most specta
cular Incident of thr hearing.
Horace T. Jones, n special 'agent of the
land office, who testified rotne time ago
111 support of Ixiuis It. Glavls, arose in hi
place among the spectators and .announced
in a loud voles that he did not bnlleve a
statement made by Secretary Ralllnger was
true and that he desired that a wttress be
called to substantiate or deny what Mr.
Rallinger bad said.
The statement had to do with Jones'
ability as an agent and was attributed by
Secretary Ballinger to Special Agent E. W.
When tho commotion in the committee
room following Jones' Interruption had
subsided. Senator Root demanded that the
witness be admonished that a repetition of
his outburst would subject him to punish-
merit for contempt.
. o Interest In Claims.
Attorney Brandels questioned Mr. Bal
linger as to whether or not the Cunning
ham claims were not oremost In his mind
when he appeared before congress in be
half of tho remedial legislation. Mr. Bal
linger Insisted they were not.
"And I want to reiterate right here,"
added the witness, "that I had no Interest
In the Cunningham claims then,, now or at
any other time. The imputations In your
questions are unfounded and haven't a leg
to stand upon. The Cunningham claims
had gone to entry and needed no legisla
tion. , "and If I had wanted, to patent those
claims, I could have gone ahead and done
so regardless of . the Glavls report. Hut
when that report was received, It was a
mattrr of Importance to hold up the
claims and wait to see If Glavls had any
thing; to let him come through Vlth It,
which he never did.
"As matters stand those claims were
suspended by me and atill are suspended.
No harm has come to the government. Yet
If I had wanted to act In bad faith. It
would have been very easy for me to say
there was nothing in the charges against
the claims and to have them patenud."
More Snakes to Kill.
A long discussion here eusurd as to
wheth?r upeclal agrnta ever took a view
of claims other than the detectives view.
Mr. Ballinger said he was Sony to say that
that Was true, n was tasler, he delared.
to do an Injustice to the individual than
to do him Justice. Attorney Rrandels sug
gested, however, that Mr. Ballinger bad
contiol of the agenta.
"Vs." snapped the secretary, "and 1
have found that the only way tu control
some of those chaps Is to discharge them'."
"When do you contemplate taking that
snake-killing step," inquired Attorney
