Cabinet Gathers Around Council Table ol
tbs New Chief Executive.
Ollier Member* Will Probably Finish
Their Terms — Senators Pay Respect*
to Mr. Roosevelt — Secretary C'ortelyou
Remains With Roosevelt.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 21.—After a
suspense of three days as a mark of
respect to the dead president the busi
ness of the government at Washing
ton was resumed yesterday. The train
bearing President Roosevelt and his
cabinet arrived at the Pennsylvania
station at y: 20 o'clock and fifteen min
utes lates the president entered the
white house and going to the elevator
proceeded at once to the cabinet
loom, where President McKinley was
wont to do most of his work. When
the new chief executive reached the
white house he walked briskly to the
big front door, which swung wide
open to receive him.
Secretary Long, who soon joined
him, informed the president as to the
condition of affairs in his office and
was asked as to the work of the
Schley court of inquiry. With Senator
Cullom. President Roosevelt exchang
ed pleasant greetings and received the
assurance of the hearty support of the
Illinois senator. With Senator Proc
tor there was a similar exchange of
expressions of good will.
The president's former secretary,
Mr. Loeb, jr.. will remain with him
probably as assistant secretary. Mr.
Cortelyou, at the president's earnest
request, will retain his position as his
At. 11 o’clock all the members of the
cabinet bad arrived at the white bouse
and soon were seated around the fa
miliar table. President Roosevelt oc
cupied a seat at the head and in the
chair long occupied by -his predecessor.
It all seemed strange to these devoted
advisers of the dead president, to sit
at the table without him at its head,
and the gloom and solemnity which
characterized the meeting was not
unbefitting the occasion. Nearly all
1he members of the present cabinet
are quite sure to remain during Mr.
Roosevelt’s term, but it is very prob
able that Secretary Long will retire
within the next few months. He feels
that he ran resign without embarrass
ment to Mr. Roosevelt and therefore it
is thought that within the next few
months he will ask the president to
permit him to retire to private life.
The cabinet was in session about an
hour and a half, all of the time be

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21.—United

among the Filipinos being apparent.

CANTON. 0.. Sept. 20—Nature has
been kind in selecting the last rest
ing place for President McKinley.
West Lawn cemetery is on a high
knoll, overlooking the peaceful valley,
with the little city of Canton laid out
below. If it were not for an inter
vening church spile one might get
from this elevation a glimpse of the
McKinley home. Here the body of
William McKinley is laid to rest. The
beauty of the grounds here attracted
the attention of the country's best
landscape gardeners, who have jour
neyed here to study its attractions.
Today it was doubly beautiful, with
the rustling trees giving off their first
yellowed leaves of fall and adding a
golden touch to the green-clad slopes.
Just, inside the stately entrance stands
the gray stone vault, where for a time
the casket will repose. Its dreary ex
terior was today relieved by great
masses of flowers, banked all about
until the gray walls were shut out
from view.
But in due time it will he taken from
the vault and committed to the little
plot of ground lying farthei on. This
is the McKinley lot and here lie his
father, whose name he bore, the moth
er he guarded so tenderly in life, his
brother Janies, his sister Anna and
his two children. And when the time
comes a stately shaft of granite will
rise above the grave, telling of the
civic virtues, the pure life and the
martyred death of William McKinley.
Dr. Rixey Says She Is Doing an Well as
Any Woman Could
CANTON, O.. Sept. 20—The friends
of Mrs. McKinley do not regard her
as being on tile verge of collapse. On
the contrary they express themselves
as quite confident that she will he
spared to them for a long time, in at
least as good a state of health as she
has enjoyed for the last five years.
Dr. Rixey said late this afternoon:
‘'Mrs. McKinley is bearing up as well
as could be expected under the cir
cumstances. She has been and is still
suffering intensely from her bereave
ment. and has frequently given way to
jobs and tears, hut for all that she
has been doing as well as any woman
could do under similar circumstances.”

Crowd So Great that Many Cannot Gain
the Parting Look — Cloning of the Ca«
ket In the Court Houne, Perhapit for
the Last Time.
CANTON, O., Sept. 19.—Tenderly
and reverently those who had known
William McKinley best yesterday re
ceived his martyred body into their
arms. They had forgotten the illus
trious career of the statesman in the
loss of a great personal friend who
had grown deearer to them with the
passing of the years. They hardly
noticed the president of the United
States or his cabinet, or the generals
and admirals, in their resplendent
uniforms. The llag-draped casket
which contained the body of their
friend and fellow townsman held all
their thoughts. He had left them two
weeks ago this very day in the full
tide of the strength of a glorious
manhood, and they had brought him
back dead. Anguish was in the heart
of every man, woman and child.
Tlie entire population of the little
city and thousands from all over Ohio,
the full strength of the National
Guard of tlie state—eight regiments,
three batteries of artillery, one bat
talion of engineers, 5,000 men in all—
the governor, lieutenant governor and
a justice of the supreme court, repre
senting the three branches of the state
government, were at the station to re
ceive the body.
The whole town was in deep black.
The only house in all this sorrow
stricken city without a touch of
mourning drapery was the old famil
iar cotttage on North Market street,
to which so many distinguished men
of the country have made pilgrimages
in the times that are gone. The blinds
were down, but there was no out
ward token of tlie blow that had
robbed it of its most precious posses
sion. Tlie flowers bloomed on the
lawn as they did two weeks ago.
There was not even a bow' of crepe
on tlie door when the stricken widow
was carried by Abner McKinley anti
Dr. Rixey into the darkened home.
Only the hitching post at the curb
in front of the residence had been
swathed in black by the citizens in
order that it might conform to the
general scheme of mourning decora
tions that had been adopted.
Sad as was the procession which
bore the body to the court house
where it lay in state this afternoon,
it could not compare with tlie infinite
sadness of that endless line of broken
hearted people who streamed steadily
through tlie dimly lighted corridors
from the time the coffin was opened
until it was taken home to the sar
i-owing widow at nightfall. They
stepped softly lest their footfalls wake
their friend from his last long sleep.
Tears came unbidden to wet the bier.
Perhaps it was the great change
that had come upon the countenance
which moved them more than tlie
sight of the familiar features. The
signs of discoloration which appeared
upon the brow and cheeks yesterday
at the state ceremonial in the rotunda
of the capitol at Washington had
deepened. The lips had become livid.
All but two of the lights of the chan
delier above the head were dis
tinguish in order that the change
might appear less noticeable, but ev
eryone who viewed the body remarked
the darkened features and the ghastly
When the body was taken away
thousands were still in line and tlie
committee in charge of tlie arrange
ments was appealed to to allow a
further opportunity today before tlie
body is taken to the church. But
this had to be denied to them and tha
casket may never be opened again.

that is due Mr. McKinley, still when
he was living he was nothing but a

Tlie A Impure of It.
If there is any truth in the saying
that happiness is the absence of all
pain, mental anil physical, the enjoy
ment of it can only he found in hea
ven. But so far as the physical is con
cerned, it is within easy reach; at
least measurably so, as fur as cure will
go. The sum of human misery in this
line is made up of greater or less de
grees of physical suffering. The minor
aches and pains which afflict mankind
are easy to reach and as easily cured.
There are none in the whole category,
which, if taken in time, cannot he
cured. They must In some form af
flict (he nerves, the hones, the muscles
and joints of (he human body. They
are ail more or less hurtful and waste
ful to (he system. St. Jacob's Oil Is
made to cure them, to search out hid
den pain spots, and to cure promptly
in a true remedial and lasting way.
Very, very many have not known hap
piness for years till they used it, ami
very many are putting off cure and
happiness because they don't use it.
The best policy for a woman is to
