1 LONDON. Aug. 30.-The body of the
founder, of the. Salvation army. General
William Booth was burled beside that
of hl wife yesterday In the old cemetery
of Abney park, in the heart of the
east end of London, where " the great
evangelist began the work that spread
over the entire world. ; No such gather
ings of the populace on a funeral occas
ion have been witnessed here except upon
the deaths of Queen Victoria and King
Sveral thousand Salvationists, the
men and women composing- the forty
eight divisions of the army from the
London provinces; ' carrying their ban
ners of "blood and fire" and keeping
step to well know Salvationist tunes
Played by forty bands, marched over the
five miles from the army headquarters
In Queen Victoria street to the burial
ground, through muddy streets, after be
ing drenched by a-downpour of rain a
It was more in the nature of a trium
phal progress; than an occasion of mourn
ing. In the same streets only a few years
ago not a few of those who marched
today had been mobbed and Jeered. No
one could estimate" the numbers who had
assembled everywhere, gathered to wit
ness the passing of the funeral of the
lata commandei-i-in-chief.- All the. win
dows and streets along the line of march
were crowded. 'Flags along the route
drooped, rain-soaked at half mast and
many of the business houses were 'closed.'
Fifty 'lhonminl nt Cemetery. " '
The multitude, in and about the ceme
tery numbered not less than 50.000. The
.new commander, Bramwell Booth; him-j
self pronounced a long eulogy and read
the committal service, ' when his father's
body was lowered , Into the grave. . As,
Bramwell Booth ". was approaching the
grave, Herbert Booth, dressed ln civilian1
clothes, stepped forward and kissed the
new general on the check. . " '
The mayor of Stoke-Newlngton and
'.he mayor of Hackney, in their robes of
office, were seated on the platform with
the Booth family. Mrs. Catherine Booth
Cllbborn,' the late general's eldest daugh
ter who had for1 years ben estranged
from the army with her husband and
-their twelve children, sat among the
mourners. . '.. ' , y
Miss Eva Booth, commander of the
army In the United States, who arrived
in London Just in time to walk behind
her father's coffin, broke down with
, grief and fatigue. Mrs. Booth-Hellberg
begged the audience to excuse her sister
from speaking, but the army was anxious
to hear the American leader and she
came forward, Bramwell Booth and Mrs.
, Hellberg" supporting her.
- Miss Booth said :
Short Speech liy Evn Booth.
"I am "worn out with travel and with
grief, but I must ' deliver my" message
from the army across the water. My
beloved father never lost the hold which
ho established there so long ago and we
feel his loss as. keenly as the English
corps. He looked forward with so much
Joy to the visit" which he had planned
;,to, tnake4o ( America this yeaiv ,,ButGod
1 is ! with us and the work will go on."
', With the exclamation of "Oh, beloved
father," Miss' Booth broke down and was
assisted to her seat
: Provisions of Will.
A summary of the will left by the late
General Booth, was made public today.
,: All the properties held by him as gen
eral of the Salvation Army and all like
' public trusts, xel and rersonal, Including
copyrights, are vested In his successor as
"general for the time being of the Salva
tion Army," to be held by him "upon
trusts affecting the same." ,
By a codicil his small private property,
having a net value of 487 19 shillings
(approximately $2,440), he gives to the Sal
vation Army,- with the exception of cer
tain private papers and memoranda,
' which are given to his eldest son,. Bram
well, and a few articles chosen by him
self,' which are given as mementoes to
each of his children and chlldren-ln-law.
Another codicil deals with property es
timated lh value at' $26,475, representing
moneys settled on him many years ago by
,the late Henry Reed for private use. It
was this' provision which enabled him to
draw no stipend nor remuneration of any
kind from the" funds of the army.'. This
property -is divided among his children,
Bramwell, Catherine, Marian, Herbert,
Eva and Lucy, His successor, Bramwell
Booth, is appointed -executor of the will.

ORIENTAL TREATMENT FATAL

tion for Skin Disease Cannes
Death Woman Companion
SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. SQ.-Louls Pot
ter, 39 years old of New York, a noted
American sculptor, died In great agony
In an obscure hotel on Sixth avenue here
today after undergoing ten days', treat
ment at the hands of a Chinese physi
cian for a skin disease with .which he
had been afflicted almost since birth.
The exact cause of Potter's death has
not been determined, although Coroner
Snyder Is convinced that it was not blood
poisoning as at first believed. An
autopsy was held tonight but nothing
was found to indicate the nature of the
final aliment. A chemical analysis of
the stomach will ba made tomorrow.
Mr. Potter, who came to Seattle ten
days ago with a woman companion and
registered at the hotel as "Dr. "Percy and
wife," told a few friends -to whom he
made himself known that he was seeking
relief from 'the dermal malady which
American and European physicians, had
told him was not serious but was incur
able. .'." ' '. ''
Mr. Potter had met a woman tourist
who had been treated for a similar ali
ment by , a Chinese physician In Califor
nia with satisfactory results and she ad
vised him to consult a Chinese , doctor
When he came to Seattle.-
With this In view, Mr. Potter regis
tered under an assumed name. The Chi
nese physician performed an operation
similar to vaccination on Potter's ab
domen last Friday, lacerating the skin
and applying a strong oriental plaster.
Potter complained' that the treatment
was severe but was hopeful that it would
The woman, who was known at the
hotel as Potter's wife, was taken to
another hotel and placed under the care
f a physician who said she was suffering
from nervous prostration. All efforts to
communicate with her wer futile and the
attending physician declined to discuss
her case or give out . any Information
concerning her, finally refusing . to
answer the door or the ttlephone.
At the home 'on Sixth avenue, where
Potter died, it was said that the woman
claimed to have worked formerly on
New " York newspapers. At no time did
she enter into details of her identity.
