BUFFALO. Sept. 16.—Buffalo jester-/
day became a city of mounrners. The
gay atid fiaraing decorations of the
Pan-American exposition gave way to
the symbol of sorrow. The black
drapery of the city's streets muffled
the tollings bells of the churches. Bits
of crepe appeared on every sleeve.
The sorrow was everywhere apparent.
In the morning a simple service took
place at the residence on Delaware ave
nue where the martyred president
A hymn was sung and prayer was
offered over the dead body. That was
all. Only the immediate family and
the friends and political associates of
the Jate president were present. The
scene there was pathetic in the ex
treme. Then the body was borne out
to tho waiting cortege on the browny
shoulders of eight sailors and soldiers
of the republic. The cortege passed
through the walls of living humanity,
grief-stricken, to the city hail.
A remarkable demonstration occur
red which proved how close the presi
dent was to the hearts of the people.
Arrangements had been made to allow
the public to view the body from the
time it arrived, at about 1:110 o’clock,
until about 5 o’clock. But the people
were wedged into the streets for two
blocks. Two lines formed. They ex
tended literally for miles. When 5
o’clock came 40,000 people had already
passed and the crowds waiting below
in the streets seemed undiminished. It
was decided to extend the time until
midnight. Then for hours longer the
streets were dense with people and a
constant stream (lowed up the steps
of the broad entrance Into the hall and
passed the bier. When the doors were
closed at midnight it was estimated
that 80,000 people had viewed the re
mains, but thousands of disappointed
ones were still in the streets. The
body will lie in the city hall until
morning. At 8:30 the funeral train
will start, for Washington over the
Pennsylvania railroad. Mrs. McKin
ley, the president, the cabinet and rela
tives and friends of the dead presi
dent will accompany the remains.
Mrs. McKinley bore up bravely today
during the service at the Milburn
house, and Dr. Rlxey, her physician,
thinks she will be able to support
her trying part in the state funeral at
The day was gray and cheerless.
Heavy clouds hung over the city, at
times breaking to let through a rift
of sunshine and then threatening to
let loose a downpour Upon the gath
ering multitude. The air was humid
and heavy and only a light wind
from the south stirred the drooping
flags and the emblems of mourning.
The very clecents seeineu to lend fit
ting accompaniment to the scene of
sorrow about to be enacted.
Mrs. McKinley, the poor, grief-crush
ed widow, had been led into the cham
ber by her physician. Dr. Rixev. and
had sat a while alone with him who
had supported and comforted her
through all their years of wedded life.
But though her support was gone, she
had not broken down. Dry-eyed she
gazed upon hint and fondled his face.
She did not scent to realize that he
was dead. Then she was led away
by Dr. Rlxey and took up her position
at the head of the stairs, where she
could hear the services.
At 1:25 tlie body was allowed to lie
viewed by the public, and a vast
crowd moved along and took their last
look at tho dead chieftain.

DISEASE AMONG CATTLE.
Result of Investigation Made by State
LINCOLN, Sept. 16—State Veterin
u'ian W. A. Thomas has been called on
frequently to investigate a disease
imong cattle. He pronounces it epi
iootic fever and not the European foot
»nd mouth disease, which it somewhat
resembles. Few cattle die, but when
:he animals are not cared for death is
ikely to follow'. Mr. Thomas said
:hat the diseased animals have a high
fever, sores appear in the mouth,
trooping follows and sometimes a dis
■harge from the nose, constipation,
mreness of the feet and stiffness of
.he limbs; on cows the udder becomes
ulcerated and the flow' of milk almost
Jisappears. One great difference be
;ween this disease and the foot and
mouth disease is that the hoofs are not
to badly affected as in the European
,'oot and mouth disease. Mr. Thomas
;ays that if the sick animals are
mrsed well the disease will run its
■ourse with little loss. He deems it.
•ontagioiis in one sense and that it is
lseless to fence against the disease,
•■et, on the other hand, many exposed
inimals fail to take the disease. It.
s impossible to tell where the disease

NEBRASKA DIVORCE LAW.
Deputy Labor (.'nmniiftsinner Seeks Opin- |
ions of Prominent Persons.
LINCOLN. Sept. 14.—Deputy Labor
Commissioner Watson has addressed
inquiries to fifty prominent persons of
Nebraska asking them for their views
on the subject of divorce legislation.
His letter containing the questions fol
“I would respectfully submit the fol
lowing questions for your careful con
sideration and ask that, if convenient,
you will kindly favor this bureau with
such answers as shall be of interest
and profit to the people of our state.
“Are you in favor of more stringent
divorce laws in Nebraska. If so, what
steps do you deem necessary to pro
cure a practical measure of reform?
“What is the effect of divorce on the
integrity of the family?
“Would a more prohibitory measure,
reducing the number of causes of di
vorce as defined In the existing stat
utes have a tendency to promote the
moral purity of society in this state?
"While the subject of divorce is
gradually assuming a position of
greater prominence before the coun
try from year to year, yet its im
portance even when confined to state
limits, might well engage the scholar
ship of a Newman or Liddon and
awaken the enthusiasm of a Wilber
force or Sumner."
Mr. Watson concludes by saying that
complete returns from all counties in
the state shows that there were 9,066
marriages solemnized and 758 divorces
granted in 1900. In Lancaster county
seventy-one divorces were granted and
thirty-five cases were abandoned.

this law. Let all concerned take due
“The question has been raised re
garding the amount the medical col
leges are supposed to pay for such bod
ies as come under this law. I do not
understand that any undertaker, cor
oner, sheriff, jailer, superintendent of
asylum or hospital, warden of peni
tentiary, etc., will be entitled to charge
more than the actual expenses in
curred, making due allowance, of
course, for his services. Unreason
