HARRonsnunO. Ky., Marcn 27.-Four

of J. T. Veach by fire, four miles from

J. M. bridges and her three children. Her
parents, the Veaches and their three chil

Mrs. Rrldges and her children were visit

second floor. Early today Mr. Veach was
aroused by the crackling of flames. He
alarmed his wife and their children, who
slept on the first fhor and shouted up a
flame-choked stairway to Mrs. Bridges.
There was no response to the alarm from
the upper floor. Veach attempted to rush
through the burning stairway to his

Had Herman B. Cohn accepted the Invi

possible he might have been still alive.
They were together at the Metropolitan
club when Cohn said it was time for him
to leave. Mr. Klein suggested that he
had ordered a taxi and that Mr. Cohn had
better wait and ride with him. The offer
was declined and Mr. Cohn caught the last
car running west on the Farnam line. The
taxi arrived sooner than it was expected
and the consequence was that Mr. Klein
arrived home before' his neighbor, Mr.
Cohn, reached the place where he was mur

Man Murdered by Dr. IL D. Kelly

STRONG DEFENSE IS PLANNED
Attorney for Kelly Makea Statesaent

(From a Blaff Correspondent.)
PIS MOINK8. Ia., March 27. (Special
Telegram.) Funeral services for Edmund
M. Bterzing, who was murdered Saturday
by Dr. II. D. Kelly, were held this after
noon. The Odd Fellows had charge of
the funeral. Mr. Bterzing had been a mem
ber of the order for years. Scores of
friends and sympathisers were present.
The body of Deputy Sheriff C. R Woll-
man, also murdered by Kelly, has been
taken to his home at Council Bluffs where
Interment will be made.
Coroner Lee will hold an Inquest this
week. Anofflclal report will be made to
the county authorities, and It Is expected
that an indictment will be returned against
the imprisoned physician.
A statement was made by the attorney

"It Is due almost entirely to Colonel
Gorgas." Bald Mr. Burke, "that it has
been possible to secure men to work upon
the canal. He has Introduced advanced
methods of sanitation, wrought wonders,
and really, I would Just as soon have a
Job on the canal as I would to work In
the open In South Dakota. That is where
we have conquered, and where, the French
men, under De Lesseps, failed. It Is said
that a human life was laid down for every
tie of the Panama railroad. Perhaps that
la true But conditions under Colonel Gor

until now the canal zone Is as healthful
a place In which to live as any spot on
earth. He has succeeded in cleaning up
fever-Infected places and maintains a
strict watch for the welfare and health
of the men, with the result that mortality
from the ordinary diseases of this climate
has been reduced to a minimum."
Heavy Weather on Trip.
As to the voyage to Colon Mr. Burke
said they encountered very heavy weather
both going and coming, but that the sen
sational stories which have been printed
as to the return trip, alleging almost a
wreck of their vessel off Hatteras Friday
had been greatly exaggerated.
"At no time during the downward trip
or the return," said Mr. Burke, "were we
In the slightest danger, though the sea
ran very .high and kept most of our party
below decks. These evidently believed the
ship was In danger, but those who were
able to go upon th deck knew better.
"A story ha been printed that Repre
sentative Mondell of Wyoming was almost
washed overboard by a huge wave, which
rolled over the ship. This I not true.
Those of us who remained on deck got a
very fine ducking and that' all. It ha
also been said that Senator -Bradley alao
was nearly washed overboard. This story
probably came about through a statement
that Senator Bradley slipped upon the
deck and was washed Into the lee scup
pers, but he was In no more danger of
being washed overboard than we are of
being injured by falling off the Goddess
of Liberty statue frorn the top of the dome
Into my committee room."
Th congressional party as a whole was
greatly pleased with what they saw rela
tive to the progress of the work upon the
"big ditch." Colonel Goethals assured the
visitors that the canal would be really
opened to vessels of th lighter draft
within two years, and that the canal would
be finished and ready to accommodate ves
sels of the largest draft afloat by 1115.

WASHINGTON. March V, From sources
close to the president It was learned today
that the pardon appeals of the two cen

doubtedly will be denied. It ts stated that
the attorney general's recommendation in
both cases Is adverse and that the presi

Reports that Charles W. Morse, now In

wh.Mi Morse's petition for pardon was pre

less than two months ago. the prisoner'
health was entirely normal.
President's Taft has had Morse' appli

President Taft, Colonel Theodore Roose
velt, Mayor Gaynor of New City, Mayor
Guerln of Montreal and others have en
dorsed the project In letters to Howard D.
Had ley of Pittsburg, chairman of a com
mittee of citizen organized to enlist in
terest in the undertaking.
President Taft wrote:
I have your letter in which you speak of
an enterprise to build a broad highway of
modern construction from New York City
to Montreul. Of course I should like to
see auch an enterprise carried out. It
would contribute to the social and busi
ness union of the two countries and cannot
but be of benefit In many other ways.
From Phoenix, Ariz., Colonel Roosevelt
sent a letter saying:
Of course It would be a great achieve
ment if we could have such an interna
tional highway from Jacksonville to Mon
treal. Anything which will stimulate com
munication between this country and the
great country of our neighbors of the north
has my cordial approval.
Mayor Guerln, commenting on the im
portance of the proposition said:
"I am confident that the building of the
road would be a great boon to Montreal
and also to New York. It is moat Impor
tant that the friendly Intercourse between
the two countries should be aa free as pos

A collector at a small port In Nw Jer
sey, who baa a record f collecting fiO
cents a year and drawing StOO In salary
and expenses, recently waa called to ac
count for not sending certain document In
connection with the payment of his sal
ary. He made this protest which has been
preserved among the archives of the treas
ury: "I was criticised because I had' failed
to make an affidavit that I had paid my
self my salary. In spite of th fact that
1 had sworn in my monthly accounts that
I had paid myself my salary, I had not
sworn that I had received the salary which
I had sworn I had paid myself. This last
affidavit cost me 25 cents.
"I then had to put In a voucher for th
2& cents and make an affidavit that I had
paid myself the 25 cents. This according
to a new ruling wa accompanied by an
affidavit that 1 had received the 2K cents
I had sworn I had paid myself. This has
started an endless chain which threatens
to land in In an Insane asylum."

Dr. Miles' Nervine
is just what it is represented to be,
a medicine compounded especially
for nervous diseases, such as fits,
spasms, St. Vitus' dance, convul
sions and epilepsy. These diseases
frequently lead to insanity or cause
weak minds. Dr. Miles' Nervina
has proven most effective in reliev
