Canton Citizens Take Touching Farwell
of Their Martyred Townsman.
Crowd So (ireat that Manjr Cannot On In
tbe Parting Look doling of the Cj
fcet in tbe Court Honor, Perhaps for
the I-t Time.
CANTON. O., Sept. 19. Tenderiy
and reverently those who had known
William McKinley best yesterday re
reived his martyred body into their
-arms. Trey had forgotten the illus
trious career of the statesman in the
loss of a great personal friend who
had grown dcearer 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 flag-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
manhcoiK and they had brought him
back dead. Anguish was in the heart
of every mac, woman and child.
The entire population of the little
c ity and thousands from all over Ohio,
the fail strength of the National
Guard of the state eight regiments,
three batteries of artillery, one bat
talion of engineers, 3.000 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 iu all this sorrow
strickea 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 cf the blow that had
robbed It of its most precious posses
sion. The flowers bloomed on the
A lawn a they did two weeks ago.
There was not even a bow of crepe
on the door when the stricken widow
was carried by Abner MoKinley ana
Dr. Rixv into . the dirkee "Te.
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 the infinite
sadness of that endless line of broken
hearted people who streamed steadily
through the dimly lighted corridors
from the time the coffin was opened
until it was taken home to the sor
rowing widow at nightfall. They
stepped softly lest their footfalls wake
their friend from his last long sleep.
Tears came unbidden to' jKet the bier.
Terhaps it was the great change
that had come upon the countenance
which moved them more than the
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 abore 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 the
committee In charge of the arrange
ments was appealed to to allow a
further opportunity today before the
tody is taken to the church. But
his had to be denied to them and the
jasket may never be opened again.

"I suppose there have been more
lies told from the pulpit and sacred
desk today than was ever known be

that is due Mr. McKinley. still when
he was living he was nothing but a
political demagogue."

Democrats aad Populists Unit on Bins
to Bead the Ticket,
For Judge of the Supreme Court

list. FRED G. HAWXBY of Nemaha. Pop-list.
LINCOLN. Neb.. Sept. 18. Conrad
Hollenbeck of Fremont, judge of the
Sixth judicial district, beads the fu
sion ticket in Nebraska this fall.
He was made the nominee of the
democratic convention on the third
ballot, the vote standing: Hollenbeck,
534; Duffle. 4022. and Hastings, 131,
giving the Fremont jurist a majority
of one.
Along between midnight and 1
o'clock he received the nomination of
the populist convention, the ballot re
sulting: Hollenbeck, 525; Kretsinger,
503, and DuS3e, 17. The nomination
in each convention was then made by
Judge Hollenbeck Is of German pa
rentage and a native of Pennsylvania.
He is 52 years of age. In 18G4, at the
age of 15, he enlisted as a union sol
dier and served nine months in hard
campaigning the army of the Potomac.
He has made Nebraska his home for
twenty-five years.
The nominees for regents of the uni
versity are both populists. J. H. Bay
stcn county is editor of the Frontier
Faber. He has lived twenty years in
Nebraska, and six years ago was the
fusion nominee for the same place to
which he now aspires.
Fred G." Hawxby of Nemaha is an
alumnus of the university of Nebras
ka and served last winter in the lower
house of the legislature.
The flght for the head of the ticket
early in the day appeared to be in
clining in Judge Hollenbeck's favor,
although in the democratic convention
bis following and that of Judge Duffle
of Omaha was very evenly divided.
Judge Hollenbeck won out largely on
account of his strength in the west
and southwest and because of the ex
tremely favorable attitude of the ma
jority of the populist convention to
ward him.
Mr. B.ryan appeared before both con
ventions during the day and address
ed them briefly, refraining, however,
from a discussion of political Ques
tions out of regard for the solemnity
of the day.
In almost all the speeches before
either convention, in the democratic
platform, and In special adjournments
of both conventions, further tribute
cf respect was paid to the memory of
the nation's dead. The presiding offi
cer of each convention was instructed
to send Mrs. McKinley the conven
tion's condolence.
The platforms were along the lines
already laid down in state and na
tional platforms of both parties. Steps
were taken during the day toward
the organization of a democratic state
press association.
Will Not Act as Attorney for Czolffosa
Unless Ordered to Io So.
MILWAUKEE, Sept. 18. Judge
Titus of Buffalo, whose appointment
as counsel for Czolgosz was announced
at Buffalo, is in this city attending a
Masonic convention. When seen re
garding his appointment he could
hardly believe the report was true,
saying he knew nothing of his ap
pointment, having left Buffalo on Sun
day. In an interview he said:
"This is the very first intimation
that I have had that my name had
been even considered In that unpleas
ant connection and I have no idea
that the report is correct.
"I left Buffalo Sunday and the sub
ject had not been broached to rre di
rectly or indirectly up to that time
and I know of no possible reason why
such a task should be imposed upon
In answer to a question whether he
would under any circumstances con
sent to defend the assassin Judge Titus

LONDON, Sept. 18. The Ecumenical
Methodist conference closed its ses
sions this afternoon with a memorial
service in honor of President McKin

and white and British and American
flags were entwined about the pulpit.
The organ played a dead march, im
pressive addresses were made and
"Nearer, My God, to Thee" was sung.

LONDON. Sept. 18. The Vienna cor
respondent of the Times says that a
semi-official communication to the

Germany and France and supposed to
have emanated from a high Russian
personage, avoids all mention of Aus

ance thus seems to be eclipsed, it is
asserted that there Is no apprehension
about insinuations that the interview
has caused umbrage.
People of the National Capital Do Honci
to the Dead Chieftain.
XtOT and Esteem for tbe Martyr Finds
nttlag Expression in a Great State
Funeral Body En Route to Canton
"Where Intrvnt Will Take Place.
that is earthly of William McKinley
speeds toward his last resting place
in Canton, O., after the nation has of
ficially and with state ceremony paid
Its tribute of respect and love to the
memory of -its stricken chief magis
trate. This was almost the closing
act in the awful tragedy which has
drenched the civilized world in tears.
Beneath the great white dome of the
capitol funeral services of state were
held yesterday over the remains of the
dead president. It was eminently fit
ting that the services should be con
ducted In that beautiful rotunda, hal
lowed by the history of the last sad
rites of two other martyrs to the
.causes of the republic.
As befitted the occasion and the
character of the man who was lying
cold and rigid, the services were sim
ple. They were conducted in accord
ance with the rites of the Methodist
Episcopal church, of which President
McKinley was a life-long member.
Consisting of only two hymns, a song,
a prayer, and address and a benedic
tion, they were beautiful and solemnly
impressive. Gathered around the bier
were representatives of every phase of
American national life, including the
president and the only surviving ex-president-
Great Britain, France, Ger
many, Italy and Spain and all the re
publics to the southward of the United
States mingled their tears with those
of the American people.
Despite the fact that no attempt had
been made to decorate the Interior of
the rotunda beyond the arrangements
made about the catafalque, the pass
age presented a memorable picture.
The somber black of the civilians was
splashed with the blue and gold of the
army and navy, and the court cos
tumes of the diplomatic corps'. As the
sweet notes of President McKinley's
favorite hyrnr. "I 3i Kindly -Ight,"
floated through the great rotunda the
assemblage rose to its feet. Bared
heads were bowed and eyes streamed
with tears. At the conclusion of the
hymn, as Rev. Dr. Naylor, presiding
elder of the Washington district, rose
to effer prayer, the hush that fell
upon the people was profound. When,
in conclusion, he repeated the Lord's
prayer, the great audience joined with
him. The murmur of their voices re
sembled nothing less than the roll of
the far-distant surf.
Scarcely had the word amen been
breathed when the liquid tones of that
sweetly pleading song, "Some Time
We'll Understand," went straight to
the heart of every auditor. The solo
was sung by Mrs. Thomas C. Noyes
of this city. The beautiful refrain
echoed and re-echoed by the double
quartet choir. The venerable Bishop
Edwin G. Andrews of Ohio, the oldest
bishop of the Methodist Episcopal
church, then took his position at the
head of the bier. A gentle breeze
stirred the delicate blooms which lay
on the coffin, and the "peace that pass
eth all understanding" seemed to rest
on the x venerable man's countenance
as he began his eulogy of the life and
works of William McKinley. His
words were simple, but his whole heart
was in every one of them. His trib
ute to the Christian fortitude of the
dead president was impressive. Upon
the conclusion of the sermon the aud
ience, as if by prearrangement, joined
the choir In singing "Nearer, My God,
to Thee."
The public were given opportunity
to view the body. When the casket
containing the body of the dead pres
ident was finally closed the cavalry
escort was formed and conveyed them
to the special train which 13 now car

CANTON, O., Sept. 18. Canton is
ready for the last home earning of
William McKinley. In other days she
has welcomed him with cheers, with
waving banners and triumphal march
es. Tomorrow she will receive him in
silence with streets hung with solemn
black and with the wailing notes of
dirges. All day long hundreds of men
and women have labored in their tasS?
of arranging the decorations on thj
public buildings, on the fronts of com
mercial houses and over the windows
and porticos of private residences. At
sunset tonight Canton was shrouded
In black.

ceremonies that the national charac
ter and tragic ending of her distin
guished husband made appropriate.

main Darius; Mondjy.
BUFFALO, Sept. 16 Buffalo yester
day became a city of mounrners. The
gay and flaming decorations of the
Pan-American exposition gave way to
the symbol of sorrow. The black
drapery of the city's streets mrfned
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
piace 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 late president were present. The
scene there was pathetic in the ex
treme. Then the body was borne out
to the 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, ta the city hall.
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 1:30 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 tlms until
midnight. Then for hours longer the
streets were dense with people and a
constant stream flowed 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 preside&t, 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. Rixey, 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 seemeu to lend fit
ting accompaniment to the scene of
sorrow about to be enacted.
Mrs. McKinley, the poor, grief-crushed
widow, had been led into the cham
ber by her physician. Dr. Rixey, 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 him and fondled his face.
She did not seem to realize that he
was dead. Then she was led away
by Dr. Rixey and took up her position
at the head of the stairs, where she
could hear the services.
At 1:25 the body was allowed to bo
viewed by the public, and a vast
crowd moved along and took their last
look at the dead chieftain.

Theodore Roosevelt Stakes Known Flans
to Cabinet and Ills Friends.
BUFFALO, N. Y Sept. 17. Presi
dent Roosevelt has outlined in some
detail the policy he will follow during
his incumbency. It will be remem
bered that when he took the oath of
office he stated with much deflniteness:
"It shall be my aim to continue abso
lutely unbroken the policy of President
McKinley for the peace (and he em
phasized that word), prosperity and
honor of the country."
Yesterday the president gathered to
gether some personal friends in Buffalo
and those members of the cabinet who
were there, and gave to them such
ideas as hn already formulated for the
conduct of public affairs and hi3 own
policy. In no sense are they divergent
from what has been understood as Mr.
McKinley's policy. This policy as out
lined to his friends at yesterday's con
ference will be for a more liberal and
extensive reciprocity in the purchase
and sale of commodities, so that the
over-production of this country can be
satisfactorily disposed of by fair and
equitable arrangements with foreign
countries. ,
The abolition of entirely commercial
war with other countries and the adop
tion of reciprocity treaties.
The abolition of such tariffs on for

Severest Test Will Come When She Re
tarns to Old nome.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 17. At 2 a. m.
it was stated at the White House that
.Mrs. McKinley appeared to be resting
quietly. Dr. Rixey, her physician, re
mained at the White House all night.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16. Mrs. Mc
Kinley has stood the strain of the try
ing ordeal following the death of the
president without breaking down and
Dr. Rixey is encouraged to believe
that she will go through the state cere
monial without breaking down. The
hours she spent beside the coffin on the
train this morning were followed by a
period of depression, but Dr. Rixey
induced her to sleep this afternoon.
Now that she has gone through with
the trials and fatigues of yesterday
and today those nearest to her feel
that there Is little serious danger of
Immediate collapse. Their dread is for
the future, when the nerve tension of
the present ordeal is over and when
the widow is back alone in tbe old
house in Canton with the flood of re
flection and realization that must come
upon her.

LONDON. Sept. 19. The Brussels
correspondent of the Times says that
the bill for regulating the administra

been published. It is an interesting
study as an experiment in colonial
government, but compares unfavorably
