THRONGS f ROM OYER THE STATE 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 lips. 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. MINISTER ROUGHLY HANDLED. Speak Insinuatingly of Dead President and 14 Tarred and Feathered. HUNTINGTON, Ind.. Sept. 19. Jos eph A. Wildman. a United Brethren minister, was tarred and feather by a crowd of one hundred last night, and turned loose to wander back home be cause on Sunday night he rcse in prayer meeting in one of the city churches and said: "I suppose there have been more lies told from the pulpit and sacred desk today than was ever known be fore. While I want to give all honor that is due Mr. McKinley. still when he was living he was nothing but a political demagogue." Pocket Contents Sosplrloas. SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 19.

As he was being revived two anarchistic pamphlets containing seditious lan " guage were found on his person.

Democrats aad Populists Unit on Bins to Bead the Ticket, For Judge of the Supreme Court CONRAD HOLLENBECK or Dodge. Democrat. For Regents of the State Univer sity J. II. BAYSTON of Frontier. Popu 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 acclamation. 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. Jl'DOE TITI'S IS SURPRISED. 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 me." In answer to a question whether he would under any circumstances con sent to defend the assassin Judge Titus replied: "Not unless ordered to do so by the court." tethodlst Conference Ends. LONDON, Sept. 18. The Ecumenical Methodist conference closed its ses sions this afternoon with a memorial service in honor of President McKin ley. The platform was draped in black 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. Ambassador Choate was among those present. Aastrians Are Not Alarmed. LONDON. Sept. 18. The Vienna cor respondent of the Times says that a semi-official communication to the Polltsche Zeitung, relating to Russia, Germany and France and supposed to have emanated from a high Russian personage, avoids all mention of Aus tria, While, however, the triple alli ance thus seems to be eclipsed, it is asserted that there Is no apprehension about insinuations that the interview has caused umbrage. BID A LAST FAREWELL People of the National Capital Do Honci to the Dead Chieftain. GREAT THRONGS IN ATTEMDANCE XtOT and Esteem for tbe Martyr Finds nttlag Expression in a Great State Funeral Body En Route to Canton "Where Intrvnt Will Take Place. WASHINGTON, D. C. Sept. IS. All 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 rying the body to Canton. 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. Sobs Weaken the Widow. WASHINGTON, Sept 18. The friends of Mrs. McKinley are seriously alarmed about her.

They dread the approaching days. flNERAL ONE DAV EARLIER Body of President Wlil Rest in Bom at Canton Wednesday. WASHINGTON, Sept. 13.

Assassin Czoloz Ioes Not Know lliat President is Dead. BUFFALO, Sept. 16. The assassin, Czolgosz, does not know that President McKinley is dead and probably will not know it until he is arraigned for murder. He will be indicted by the grand jury probably today and the case will be then immediately removed to the supreme court. The arraign ment will take place in that court and will" be very soon, the time depending on the returning of the indictment. No" further effort was made to alk to Czolgosz nor was the theory of poison ed bullets taken up by the police. They feelconfident that when the bullets re maining in the revolver are chemical ly examined, as they will be, no poison will be found in them. Manna's Tooc'iinc Tribute. BUFFALO, N. Y.. Sept. 1C Senator Mark Hanna, although giving utter ance to but few sentences in the elo quence of his sincerity, paid a touch ing tribute to his departed friend, the dead president: "I cannot say, I shall not try," he said, "to utter sentiments of tribute. For many years the president has been my dearest friend. My devotion to the president during all these years ought to indicate how I esteemed the man and what I thought of him."

BODY LYING INSTATE Friends Gather at Milburn Hou3e to Mourn Over Their Leader. NEW PRESIDENT SADLY AEfECTED Senator Hanna Filled With Anguish Over Loss of Chief Body to lie Taken to Be Taken to City Halt and There Re 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 died. 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 Washington. 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. Meet Train at State Border. COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 16. The state officers will leave for Canton Thurs day morning on a special train.

Admiral Dewey has recalled the notices for the Schley court of inquiry.

Court will be assembled aa soon as seems proper after tbe funeral of the president. POLICY Of NEW PRESIDENT. 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 eign goods are are no longer needed for revenue, if such abolition can be had without harm to our industries and labor. '. Direct commercial lines should be established between the eastern coast of the United States and the ports la South America and the Pacific. ports of Mexico, Central America and South America. The encouraging of the merchant marine and the building of ships which .shall carry the American'flag and be owned by Americans and American capital. The building and completion as soon as possible of the isthmian canal, so as to give direct water communication with the coasts -of Central America, South America and Mexico. The construction of a cable owned by the government, connecting our main land with our foreign possessions, not ably Hawaii and the Philippines. The use of conciliatory methods of arbitration in all disputes with foreign nations so as to avoid armed strife. The protection of tb.favings of. the people in banks and other forms of in vestments by the preservation of the commericial prosperity of the country and the placing in positions of trust men of only the highest integrity. FEAR MRS. M'KINLEVS FUTURE. 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. CZOLGOSZ AT THE BAR. First Step Taken In Prosecution of th President's Assassin. BUFFALO. Sept 17.

When arraigned before Judge Emery the prisoner stubbornly refused to an swer questions repeatedly asked of him by District Attorney Penney as tc whether he had counsel or wanted counsel. The district attorney then suggested that inasmuch as the defend ant refused to answer, counsel should be assigned. After the indictment was returned the prisoner was driven to the jail across the street from tbe hall. He will probably be arraigned today. Blshon Whipple Dead. ST. PAUL, Minn.. Sept. 17.

The manner in which the president made the tender icr.dered It Impossible for the members of the cabinet to taUe any other course, as they already are Iu the positions and cannot decline, but must resign their places if they de sire to leave the cabinet.

Another feature of the relations of the new president with the last ad ministration became known today, to the effect that Mr. Roosevelt has been fully advised and has approved of the negotiations in progress relative to the proposed isthmian canal treaty with England. EXPECT BOERS TO MIGRATE Germany's Offer for Them to Settle la Damaraland Country. LONDON. Sept. 19. Recent advices from Pretoria are as follows: Some of the officials of the hoer government are hopeful that something will result from General Kitchener's proclamation in regard to the burghers who do not sui render by September 15.

It is reported that the final plan of the Boers is to make for the Damaraland border and ac cept the offer made by the German consul to sell them land at 4 pence an acre. The only stipulations made by the Germans to which the Boers object are that they (the Boers) shall be liable to two years military service and that their children must be edu cated in German.
