LONDON, May 21. (Special Cable.)
King Edward won tho peacemaker even
In death. The Incidents of the splendid
pageant which marked the passage of his
body from Westminster to the grave, ami
the deep feeling and tact which luut been
shared bv KalBer Wllhelm during his
1 visit here has done mine to soothe the
. friction between Germany and England
1 than could have been accomplished by
tho widest statesmanship.
The German kaiser has In fact exhibited
H new phuse of his many sided character
and by his many evidences of keen human
sympathy, not only with the grief of the
royal family, but with the great mass
of the English, has won the stolid IJrltlsh
There are those who declare that the
kaisei has acted grief and sympathy for
a purpose, and these point to the fact
that there was always a feeling of veiled
antugonlsm between the kaiser and his
uncle, the late king. If his sympathy
van acting for tho purpose of winning
the public It was perfect and It has ac
complished its purpo.se. It will take more
than political speeches In the future to
convince the Kngllsh people that Ger
many has designs against' the English
nation. Thus the Influence of Edward
dead has been greater than the Influence
of Edward living In brlnglg about a
better feeling between the greatest naval
power and the greatest mflltary power In
the world which have been almost Wi
the verge of an open break more than
onco since the late king ascended the
throne. . '
Roosevelt Shows Tact.
With the kaiser, former President
Roosevelt has been the figure In the
ceremonies attending tho royal funeral
whic1. ha-; attracted the greatest Interest.
. Mr Roosevelt has shown great tact and
no ii Imposition to push himself forward,
: b.it vncrever he has been the masses
have been nnxlous to see him.
Another InKreHtlngr figure has been King
Alfonso of Spain. -The news of the pro
ihaturo death of his third son and the
1 serious Illness of Queen Victoria has ere-
ate! sympathy for him.
Queen Mother Alexandria received all the
visiting kings, princesses and special en-'
Voys at Buckingham palace this morning
uud formall ythanked them for their sym
lalhy. Her majesty, while showing traces
of deep grief, was calm and collected dur
ing the audience and was very gracious In
her expressions of thanks.
Immediately after the conclusion of the
audience. Klncc Alfonso hurried off to
WBt Park, the house of Ambassador Reld,
where they will remain until Monday. The
kaiser' will stay nt Buckingham palace
until Monday .afternoon or Tuesday. The
..H...I- rovaltles and envoys are leaving
London. There baa been some comment on
the fact that on the ceremonial at West
minster hall Tuesday, Queen Alexandria
was accompanied by her a str, tne aowasei
empress of Russia, instead of by Queen
Alcxundrn Scores a Point.
Alexandria properly took! the first place,
as the ch'ef lady mourner, but she should
have been accompanied by Quten. Mary,
who is entitled to precedence over every
body except the king. But Alexandria,
whohas an Imperious, wilful way of her
own, held out against the king and queen
finally getting her wish thnt Empress
Marie sit beside her. The result was that
Mary played a second part In her
state appearance of tha flew" reign.

"The rallroaus have got together,

."They have done this thing without
taking us Into consultation In any way.
They have, made their talk and taken

Mr.. McVann gave a well defined picture
of the position that ...e shippers assume
when he declared that It would not bo
a fight before the Interstate Commerce,
"This will be a fight right In the field.
Rough and tumble, everything goes. Re

The railroads will not be represented at
this meeting in any way, Mr. McVann an
nounces in most emphatic terms.
the shippers take the position now that
their differences with the roads are to be
fought out now once and for all. The day
of equivocation Is past. Figures and esti
mates on the gain which the railroads will
make by the Increased rates which they
have .scheduled to become effective June
1, have been made public by the Interstate
Commerce commission. These estimates, in,
their showing that the higher revenues
will give the roads hundreds of millions
in revenue above their Increased expense,
have been but fuel to the fire.
- These estimates place the Increased ex
penditures of the roads at but a fraction
of the higher earnings made possible by
the raise In freight rates.
An example is cited in the calculation
made on the roads within the territory
bounded by the Indiana and Illinois state
lines on the west, and the Potomac river on
the south. Here the trunk lines reached a
total in gross earnings of 1, 107,437,180 In
the year ending June 80, 1907. With this
figure, ' which is probably far below the
present earnings, as a basis, the Increase
in rates even if It averages as low as 10
per cent, will return a tidy bunch of mil
lions above the $90,000,000 increase in oper
ating expenses. This figure on the In
creased operating expenses, according to
the Interstate Commerce commission, in
cludes a number of projects for increased
expenditures which have not yet been
made. The advance In payrolls in the ter
ritory so described, is covered by $50,000,000.
Advances In Waves.
W. C. Brown, president of the New York
Central lines, estimates that advances al
ready made in the wage of organized la
bor and those yet to be made In 1910, will
cost the roads of the country $100,000,00 an
nually. The shippers, however, point out
that In the territory included In the Inter
state Commerce commission's estimate of
Increased earnings, comprising but a frac
tion of tho country's lines, more than this
amount of additional revenue will be pro
duced by the Increased rates.
The gradual Increase ot rates has al
ready been felt in this territory from in
creases made effective on January 1. As
an example the rate on live stock between
Kansas City and 6t Louis, which becomes
the basis of the Omaha rate to the south
east, has been Increased from 2 to 3 cents
a hundred pounds.

As congress lags towards a close, many
of the national legislators gathered here,
spend as much time discussing the complex
political situation as they do the intricate
measures which have so greatly disturbed
the peace of tho senate and house. Th
exigencies of the republican situation have
led to unbounded enthusiasm in the ranks
of democracy. With the accustomed for
tune of democrats, however, optlmtstlo
signs are overshadowed with dissension.
Democrats See Thlnsia.
The democratic leaders from William
Jennings Bryan down, speak In terms ol
rosy hope for the national campaign of
1U12, but they all say that much will de
pend upon the outcome ot the elections
thlB year.- Not one la ready to express In
distinct terms a prophecy as to who will
be the next democratic nominee for presi
dent. All say the foregoing mentioned quad
ruplicate are ellglbles, but the elimination
process must be brought into play very
care fully, cautiously and conservatively.
Colonel Bryan, it Is understood, will not
be a candidate for the presidency in 1612.
On that subject he has become a sphinx.
But from the indications and recent de
velopments he will make no effort towards
political domlnancy further than to retain
sufficient power to have a voice In the
naming ot a candidate. The fact that in
1S96, 1!K)4 and 1906 a westerner was the dem
ocratic nominee for the presidency leads
to the belief that the next presidential nom
inee on the democratic ticket must come
from that territory known as the for west
or else the east.
Considering as east, all that section east
of the Mississippi river, all the foregoing
mentioned ellglbles are then easterners,
It Is quite possible that the demo -rate
of New York will nominate Mayor Gay
nor for the governorship although the
city executive of the Empire state me
tropolis has been engaged in a war of
words with William 11. Hearst, which
opened a new breach in New York state

Mr. Bryan sailed today on the steamer
Celtic as a delegate-at-large from the
United States to the International Mission
ary conference In Scotland. Judge George
Gray of Delaware was a fellow passenger
with Mr. Bryan.
"If the next congress, which I believe will
be democratic, with the members of the
majority hailing largely from the west,
makes a favorable record, in view of the
