BURY SICKLES AT ARLINGTON General Left Note Expressing Pref- erence for National Cemetery. Major Gen. Daniel E. Sickles will not be buried at Gettysburg, but in Arling- ton National Cemetery, according to a statement made yesterday by his attor- ney, Daniel P. Hays. In April, 1910, Gen. Sickles visited Ar- lington with the late Major A.J. Za- briskie, at that time Secretary of the New York Monuments Commission, and expressed a desire to be buried there. Major Zabriskie made a note of this and informed his son, who told Mr. Hays. Confirmation is given in a note which Gen. Sickles left for Mr. Hays, in which he expressed a preference for Arlington. The funeral services will take place on Friday morning at 11 o'clock in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Mgr. Lavelle will officiate. The body will escorted to the Cathedral from the residence at 23 Fifth Avenue by the Twelfth Regiment, New York National Guard, of which Gen. Sickles was once a member, two troops of cavalry, and the First Bat- tery, Field Artillery. Members of Phil Kearny Post, G. A.R., will also be in the escort, and other Grand Army men will be in line. Regular troops from Governors Island may also be in the guard of honor.
