CHICAGO, April 7.-C.V Warman, poet
and short story writer, died here today
After a long Illness.
Warman wan stricken with paralysis In
his hotel here this winter. The outlook
was unfavorable from the first. He was
removed to a hospital a few weeks ago,
where he continued to sink, until the end
Cy Warman was known as the "poet of
tho Rockies" and was a pioneer In the
school of railroad literature. His stories
about railroad men were based on per
sonal experience at Sallda, Colo., where
In the early 'M's he worked In turn as a
wiper, fireman and locomotive engineer.
After a few years of railroading he be
came 111 and was compelled to seek lighter
He went to Denver and worked as a re
porter. Ho began publishing tho West
ern Hallway Journnl there, but It did not
prove a success. All the while he was
writing short poems and bits of prose, but
there seemed to be no sale for them. One
day, when he was feeling unusually
downhearted, he wrote.
But there's a consolation In the thought
that when we're dead.
If we have written something good our
efforts will be read;
And friends will plant forget-me-nots and
come and sigh,
And Irrigate our grave with tears when
we go off and die.
Xatlvc of Illlnol.
Cy Warman was a native of Illinois.
He was born In 1855 near Greenup on a
homestead presented to his father by
the government for gallant servlco In the
Mexican war. 'When ho became of nge
he obtained J1.000 and established him
self at Pocahontas as a wheat buyer.
Two weeks later ho started home on a
freight train. Tho bottom fell out of
tho wheHl market an his first shipment
arrived at St. I-ouls. When he got back
to tho farm he had just 60 cents left.
Warman had always wanted to run a
locomotive so he went to Colorado and
learned the business. It was while he
was at Sallda that he obtained the ma
terial on which he made his reputation
as a writer. Piloting an engine did not
have the fascination he had expected.
Illness increased his dissatisfaction. He
abandoned his railroad magazine next
and went to the boom camp of Creede,
Colo., where ho issued the Dally Chron
icle. This venture also failed.
Turn of lie Title.
At (hit time of discouragement War
man was cheered by tho publication in
n newspaper of a column of his verses.
Later he received a column editorial" In
troduction as the "Poet, of the Hockies."
In the meantime the poet had met Miss
Marie Myrtle Jones. It was she who In
spired, his verse for "Sweet Marie," a
song which, afterward became a great
success. T,hey were married and spent
three years In travelling. The poet found
a ready market for years' accumulation
of writings. .He went abroad and was
commissioned to write of .the railroads
on the continent. While In Paris ho
wroto bis first successful book, "Tales
of an Engineer."
Resist Federal land
DENVER, April 7. What was declared
to bo the most , far-reaching effort ever
made-to resist government reservation of
the public lands of the west began to-'
day, when the western governors' con
ference opened Its annual meeting here.
With bills before congress designed still
further to extend the federal conserva
tion policy the executives of ten or more
Rocky mountain and Pacific coast states
convened with the avowed intention of
proclaiming on behalf of the states the
right of more easy settlement of the pub
llo domain within their boundaries.
Governor E. M. Ammons of Colorado
said before the conference opened that
the bills now under consideration before
congress would, it all were enacted, put
every acre of government land remaining
In the west, with the exception of pre
cious metal land, under a leasing system.
The governors' present for the opening
cession were: Tanker It. Oddle, Nevada;
Joseph M. Carey, AVyomlng; Ernest Ma
ter, Washington; Oswald West, Oregon;
John M. Haines, Idaho; e M. Ammons,
The governors were entertained at a
luncheon at the Denver eluo by John C .
Shaffer, editor of tho Denver Times and
tho "Rocky Mountain News.
Governor Carey of Wyoming was on
the program for late today to dUcuss
"How We May Help Carey Act Proj
ects.'.' Governor Carey was the author
of the Carey, or Irrigated homestead act
under which settlers may secure govern
ment lands under Irrigation projects, pa
Ing for the land at 60 cents an acre for

and his wife had Intended to vote against
the saloon, but that he had exacted a
promise from her to go to the polls with
him. Ho was Indignant, he said, when
she had not kept her word.
Clifford Adams, colored, who was In
the Haegei home, says that Mrs. "Haegei
shot herself. He says the story tho hus
band tells Is true. Ho Is the only wit
ness. The news of tho election shooting added
to Intense excitement already existing
here. Charges by the wets that tho drys
were challenging every one of their wo

would not know how to vote brought a
number of clashes at the polls.
WASHINGTON. April 7.-Klfteen days
of public hearings, beginning April 9, on
the Sims bill to repeal the Panama tolls
exemption, were decided on today by the
senate canals committee.
Administration supporters pressed for
n minimum of delay In getting the Hlms
bill out of committee and professed to be
satisfied with the plan for fifteen days
of hearings, provided added time was not
reserved for consideration of the bill after
hearings are over. Tho hearings will give
opportunity for threshing out various
amendments, principal among them, one
to reaffirm the sovereignty of the t'nlted
States over tho Canal lone and Its right
under the treaty to grant an exemption to
coastwise' ships It It desired to do so.
The controversy continued to eclipse in
terest In all other business In the senate
chamber. Senator Works, republican, of
California made a lengthy speech, analyz
ing the treaty obligations of the t'nlted
"The granting of this exemption Is a
purely' domestic matter,'" said he. "There
could be no discrimination against Great
Britain because no foreign nation cun
enter Into the coastwise trade. Some of
our own representatives have out-Hrit-Ished
the British In their claim for that
Ilrnudenee Voten Xn,
Senator Brandegee. republican, cast tho
only vote against the hearings, saying he
did so because ho believed the committee's
action would have .no weight. Ho urged
that the repeal bill be returned to the sen
nto without any report and that tho fight
bo transferred to the floor.
The committee adjourned until Thurs
day, with the understanding that the
authors of various bills and resolution-,
on tho subject will then be heard ponding
the arrival of witnesses from New Or
leans and the Pacific coast.
By a vote of 35 to 27, the first taken In
the senate on the Panama tolls exemption
controversy, Senator Polndexter's rosolu
tlon asking President Wilson for an ex
planatlon of the language of his repeal
message, was tefirrcl to the foicign rc

them to our Mr. Schmoller, who learning of their difficulty, shook the ready
cash in their face, and finally secured the whole lot at 40 centa on the dollar.
