Speaking of the privilege of Ameri can citizenship, Robert Cowell said: "It is a great thing to be a citizen of a nation that gave freedom to Cuba; and it is a great thing to be a citizen of the nation that gave back $20,000,000 of the indemnity collected by the nations of the world from China after the Boxer uprising.

CHOATE, ' LAWYER, IS DEAD Noted for His Prosecution of Tweed and as Figure in Other Cases and as Am bassador to England, New York, May 15. Joseph II. Choate. former United Slates ambas sador to Great Britain, died at 11:30 o'clock last night at his home in this city. Mr. Choate had been ill only since this morning. He had taken a very active part in the entertainment in this city o! the British and French war Suffragists Urge 'White Zones' About The Military Camps Columbus, O., May 15.

Sioux Falls, S. D., was selected for the 1918 session. sJOSZPHti CHOATE missions and all ;ided services at the cathedral of St. Joi.n the Divine with Foreign Minister BsKour yesterday morning. Mr. Choate was referred to by Mayor Mitchel, at one of the enter tainments in honor of the war mis sions as the "foremost citizen of New York." Prosecuted Boss Tweed, Mr. Choat was 85 years old. He came from an old New England family. His father was a cousin of the famous Rufus Choate. He was graduated from Harvard in 1852, a college mate of Phillips Brooks. He established himself in New York in 1856 soon after finishing his law studies, and as a member of the firm of Evarts, Southmayd and Choate he rose to leadership of the New York bar. He appeared in all the celebrated cases it was said a case was not a case unless Choate appeared in it where fluency and wit and searching cross-examination brought him con siderable success. He figured in the prosecution of "Boss" Tweed and his followers who looted the New York City treasury; he so successfully defended General Fitz-John Porter, that by reversal of a court-martial that officer was rein stated. He appeared in the Tilden will case, the contest over Commodore Vander bilt's millions, and the Chinese ex clusion case, arguing against the validity of the act. These are but a few of the famous litigations in which he figured. Dares to Rebuke Court. His professional income during the height of his career was believed to he the largest of any practioner in the American courts. It is on record that, during his younger days, he had the daring to rebuke a judge, who had turned to converse with someone behind him, while Choate was addressing the court. Lhoate stopped short in his address. The judge remarked the si lence, and as His Honor turned to face the room the lawyer began anew: "Your Honor, I shall need all the time allotted me for summing up; and I shall need your Honor's undivided attention." "And you shall have it," the court apologized. Mr. Choate was a republican, but 100 Good I. had never held public office, beyond a brief term as a member of a state constitutional convention, when he was invited by President McKinley in 189 to go to London as the Ameri can ambassador. What He Would M. The stories told about him, too, were countless as those he told, for he was one of those picturesque fig ures about which stories cluster some of which undoubtedly belonged to others. One typical flash of his wit is that with which he answered a dinner partner, who asked who he would chose to be if he were not Joseph 11. Choate. "Mrs, Choatc's second husband," was the instantaneous reply. Mrs. Choate was Caroline D. Ster ling of Cleveland, O., whom he mar ried in 18ol, and by whom he had five children.
