Followed an Operation;
MADE FOR LIFE
Man Who Rose From Saddle
Maker to Ruler Made Good
Even His Most Bitter Ene
mies Have Had to Admit.
Berlin, Feb. 28 (By the Associated
Press). —Frederick Ebert, the first Pres
ident of the German republic, died at
10:15 this morning - from peritonitis,
which followed an operation for appen
dicitis five days ago.
The former saddle maker, whose skill
in guiding the infant republic through
the first turbulent years of its existence,
was admitted by his enemies, made a gal
lant fight for life. But his sysetin had
been undermined by an attack of influ
enza. and bin heart was not equal to
the burden imposed by the" poison which
had spread through his system.
Around his bedside when the end came
were his wife, his daughter, Amelin, and
her husband, Dr. Wilhelm .Taenecke, and
their sole son to suriveve the war, Fred
erick, Jr. Stnte Secretary Meissner
was the only other person present aside
from the doctors and nurses.
The political attack upon the Presi
dent which culminated in the Magdeburg
trial and the efforts to connect him with
the Barmat loan scandal added greatly
to the burdens imposed upon him as
chief executive of a new republic whose
people had not been trained in the con
stitutional * governmentnd. and whose
chancellors have changed almost with the
moons because of inter-party strife.
At the widow's request the funeral Will
be held Wednesday at the executive man

At this morning’s cabinet meeting the
chancellor made a brief address, com

President Ebert had handled the ex

BLAZE GETS WOMAN
OVER 100 YEARS OLD
Dinah Lawson, Supposed to Be 125
Years of Age, Burned In Mount Olive
Mount Olive, Feb. 27.—A horrible ac
cident occurred here this afternoon
about 5 o’clock when Dinah Lawson,
aged negro woman, residing in the edge
of town, was burned to death.
“Aunt Dinah,” as she wa« known,
lived alone in an apartment and was
said at the time of the accident to have
been sitting by a heater from which 't
is supposed that her clothing caught on
fire and when friends found her her
clothing was practically - burned off of
her and her body badly burned from her
knees npward and life was extinct.
Pathos is added to the accident by
reason of her advanced age. According
to her story, and nobody here in old
enough to know anything to the con
trary, she wn« 125 years of age, prob
ably the oldest person in, North Caro
lina. She had been totally blind and
practically helpless for about a year
and was usually attended by a grand
daughter who lived near her.

COLORADO WOULD HONOR PIKE
State May Purchase Land Where Filte
Denver, Color., Feb.. 28.—A bill to api

in the San Luis Valley of Colorado of
ficially designated as the site .if a fort
ress, or stockade, erected in 1807 by
Lieut. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, dis
covered of Pike's Peak, has been intro
duced in the Colorado legislature, with •
the indorsement of all the historical and.
patriotic organizations in the stnte. A
memorial also has been addressed to the
United States Congress requesting that
there be established “The Zebulon Mont
gomery Pike National Monument” in
' Connejos county, Colorado.
Lieut. Pike was the first to explore
1 a vast portion of the western country.
He was only 26 years old when lie was
• sent out to find the sources of the Mis
i souri. The governor of Louisiana fitted
out young Pike with a party of twenty,
soldiers and provisions to last for four
They set forth from St. Louis in a
flatboat. The journey and exploration
were full of danger and suffering, and
occupied eight months. ’ But Pike did
not lose a man,, and he brought back a
carefully prepared description of the
country which he had traversed. He
. established several important trading
posts and took down the British flag
when he found it, replacing it with that
of the United States.
He had so clearly demonstrated his
ability for this work of exploration and
expansion that lie was intrusted with
a party to make an expedition to the
head, watesw-ot.the Arkansas and of 4ha
Bed rivers, and to see how far they
were navigable. The son of the Louisi
ana governor went with .him, and when
they reached the Arkansas river Pike
sent him down to Arkansas post, with
five soldiers and two Indians, while he
himself went upstream.
It was upon the date of November
15th that Pike sighted a beautiful moun
tain peak towering above the range that
belonged to Mexico. This was named,
as it remains today, Pike’s Peak.
After suffering'tortures from cold —f<%
the men had only summer clothing—and
with insufficient food, Pike discovered
that he was not on the right track for the
Red river, and made a second error by
turning toward New Sphin. The cold
was terrible and for four days they
had no food. They were utterly ex
hausted when they reached the Rio
Grande, and thought this the Red river.
Not long after establishing himself here,
Pike was taken to Santa Fe and brought
before the Spanish governor to explain
his presence in the country.
After a careful examination, Governor
Allencaster sent him and his band to
Chihuahua, by the way of El Paso, and
after being examined by the commandant
at Chihuahua, they were sent on to
Natchiteehee, where they entered the
United States again.
While in New Spain Pike made most
valuables notes in small blank books.
The leaves were then torn out, rolled in
small wads, and he and his men put
them into the barrels of their guns, just
leaving room for the tompions.
Congress voted thanks to Captain Pike
and he soon rose to be brigadier general.
A fey weeks after attaining this proud
position he was killed at the capture of
York. Canada, which is now Tpronto.
The battle was won, with General Pike
in command, and as he waited for the
white flag a magazine exploded and the
general fell. There was just time to
hand to him the flag of the enemy.
With a brave smile he laid his head
upon it, and his spirit fled.
