BURY SICKLES AT ARLINGTON General's Riderless Horse Follows Caisson in Solemn Procession. WASHINGTON, May 9.--All the hon- ors of war were paid to the late Major Gen. Daniel E. Sickles, who was buried in Arlington National Cemetery here to-day. The body of the veteran corps commander was carried in solemn pro- cession from the Union Station, where it lay in state through the night, to the cemetery, accompanied by an escort of cavalry and field artillery. Following the caisson which bore the body, was led the General's riderless horse. As the procession passed through the grounds of Fort Myer, a major Gen- eral's artillery salute was fired, and at the grave three salvos of rifle shots and another artillery salute marked the plac- ing of the body in its last resting place. The Rev. Father J.D> Houlihan, chap- lain at Fort Myer, read the funeral service. In addition to the regular army es- cort, a large number of civil war veterans marched in the procession.
