New York, Feb. 20.—"I'm very much shocked by General Funston's death," said Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood, commanding the department of the east. "He was one of our most efficient and ablest officers. His loss is a great one to the army and to the United States." VERY SUDDENLYiMOURNERS VIEW BODY OF GENERAL FUNSION Washington, Feb. 20.—Maj. Gen. John J. Pershing, the officer in tbe Unied States army who recently attained that rank, will be given permanent command of the department of the South, succeeding Maj. Gen.

San Antonio, Tex., Feb. 20.—Flags half mast and every khaki-clad man a mourner, the body of the late Maj. Gen. "Fred" Funston was in Fort Sam Houston today.

His death leaves flve major generals in the army, besides Hugh L* Scott, who is chief of staff. They are General Wood, commanding the department of the East; General Barry, commanding the department of the Middlewest; General Bell, commanding the department of the West, General Pershing and General Bliss, assistant chief of staff. The fact that three oi' these officers now command army departments is believed to preclude the possibility of one of them becoming commander of the Southern department. Bliss, as assistant chief of staff probably would not be relieved, so Pershing is believed to be the logical man. His long experience on the border, it is admitted fits him peculiarly for the command. Although Secretary Baker is expected to act quickly in view of present Mexican and European troubles, there has been no hint as to his probably decision. General Funston became a member of the U. S. army after a career in the Cuban army during the war with Spain. He had previously been a newspaper reporter, combining this experience with being an officer of the law, during which time he single- banded arrested a two hundred pound bad man. He quit the Cuban army when fifty guerillas were lined up against a wall and shot against his advice. He was captured on his way from the front and saved his life by swallowing a letter which would have betrayed his identity. He became a brigadier general after his capture of the Filipino chieftain Agulnaldo, and remained at that rank until elevated by President "Wilson. under him, but it was like the fighting Kansan to make no complaint and to stick out his work just the same. Major General Pershing, just back from Mexico, assumed temporary- charge of tho Southern department today in place of his late chief. ,F 8Y By United Press.

Dayton, O, Feb. 20.—Police of the city and county detectives have not as yet solved the manner in which William A. Conner, 32, Indianapolis, came to his death early Monday morning at Moraine, five milee south of Dayton. Murder and accident theories are entertained respectively by the man's friends and tbe police. It has been learned that Conner spent a portion of Sunday night at "Stop Nine," a gambling resort near Moraine. Friends say he won several hundred dollars and strengthen the murder theory by the fact that only $10 was found in his clothes. Police believe that he missed the last car into Dayton and started to walk the distance only to fall 26 feet to his death through an overhead traction crossing, a short distance from Stop Nine. : By I'nited Press London.
