the Abionco of Mr.Mcltluley
A Canton, O., dispatch says: With
majestic solemnity, surrounded by his1
countrymen and his townspeople, in
ttio presence of the president the
cabinet, justices of the United States
.supreme eourt, senators and represent
atives in congress, the heads of mill
tary and naval establishments, the
governors of states and a great con
course of people who had known and
loved htm, all that Is mortal of the
third president to fall by an assassin's
bullot was committed to the grave. It
was a spectacle of mournful grandeur.
Canton ceased to be a town and swelled
to tho proportions of a great city.
From every city and hamlqt In Ohio,
from the remote corners of tho south,
and from the cast and west, the human
tldo flowed Into tho town until 100,000
peoplo were within Its gates, here to
pay tho last tribute to the fallen chief.
The final scenes at the First Motho
dlst church where the funeral service
was hold, and at the beautiful West
lawn cemetery, where tho body was
consigned to a vault, were simple and
impressive. Tho service at the church
consisted of n brief oration, prayers by
the ministers of three denominations
And singing by a quartet. Tho body
was taken to Wcstlawn cemetery and
placed in the receiving vault, pending
the time when it will be finally luid to
rest beside tho dead children who were
burled yean. ago.
The funeral procession was very Im
posing, and included not only tho rep
resentatives of the army and navy of
the United States, but the full military
strength of the state of Ohio and thou
sands of civic, fraternal and other or
ganizations. It was two miles long.
One of the most pathetic features of
tho day was tho absence of Mrs. Mc
Kinlcy from tho funeral services at
the church and cemetery when the
body of her husband was laid to rest.
Since the first shock of the shooting,
then of death and through the ordeal
of state ceremonies she 'had borne up
bravely. Hut there was a limit to hu
man endtiranco and when the day
came for the final ceremonies at Can
ton it found her too weak to pass
through tho trials of tho burial cere
monies. Through the open door of her
room she heard the prayer of the min
ister as the body was borne out of the
house. After that Dr. Rlxey remained
close by her side, and although tho
full force of tho calamity had como up
on her, it was believed by those about
her that there was a providential mer
!y in her tears, as they gave somo re
lief to the anguish of the heart within.
The services at tho church were sim
ple. The favorite hymns were sung,
and C. E. Manchester, pastor of the
First M. E. church, delivered his ad
dress, part of which was as follows:
"Not only was our president brave,
heroic and honest; he was as gallant a
knight as ever rodo the lists for his
lady love in the days when knighthood
was in flower. It is but a few weeks
since tho nation looked on with tear
dimmed eyes as it saw with what tender
conjugal devotion ho sat ut the beside
of his beloved wife, when all feared
that a fatal illness was upon her. No
public clamor that ho might show him
self, no din of social function was suffi
cient to draw the lover from the bed
Bide of his wife. He watched and
waited while wo all prayod and sho
lived. This sweet and tender story all
tho world knows, and the world knows
that his whole life had run in this one
groove of love.
In tho midst of our sorrow wo have
much to console us. Ho lived to see
his nationS greater than ever before.
All section... lines are blotted out.
There is no north, norsonth, nor cast,
nor west. Washington buw thu begin
ning of our natlonatvilfc. Lincoln
passed through tho nlgln. of our hlb
tory and saw the dawn. MKinluy bo
hold his country In tho splendor of its
noon. Truly ho died In tho fuinoss nf
his fume. Tho wojlc assigned h.. had
been well done. Tho nation wft ut
nonce. We had fairly entered uponu
era of unparnllelcd prosperity. Our revv
cnues were generous. Our standing
among nations was secure. Our presi
dent was safely enshrined In the hearts
of a united people. It was not at him
the fatal shot was fired, but at tho
very lifo of the government. In view
of these things we are not surprised to
hear, from one who was present when
this great soul passed away, that ho
never before saw a death so peuceful,
or a dying man so crowned with gran
deur. After the benediction was pronounc
ed the casket was borne from tho
church to the funeral car, and tho
inarch of tho procession to tho eerae-
Memorial In Lincoln.
In Lincoln everywhere the namo of
McKinley was spoken with reverence
Thursday, Tho regard for him born
of tho many beantlful attributes of his
charueter was genuine on tho part of
every citizen and at services hold in
his memory kindly words of deepest
sincerity were pronounced by all.
Three large meetings wore held In Lin
coln, one at tho auditorium and over
I flow meetings at tho First Presbyter
' ian and First Congregational churches.
The meetings were attended by smili
crowds as have .scarcely ever been in
these edifices be.fnro.
At cither side of the henrso marched
the guard of military and naval honor,
tho generals on tho right led by Gen
eral Miles and the admirals on tho left
led by Admiral Fnrquhnr. .Then came
the long line of carriages for, tho rela
tives and friends and after them tho
innumerable military and civic organi
sations thnt had assembled to pay this
last honor to the fallen chLcf.
For nearly half an hour before the
head of the procession arrived at tho
gale of the cemetery the strains of the
dirges played by the bands came over
the hilltop to tho watchers by tho
vault, telling them that tho procession
was on its way. Finally at .1:30 o'clock
tho dctachuicntof mounted pollco head
ing the parade came slowly around tho
corner of Ijncoln street and passed up
West Thi;?! street to tho cemetery. Be
hind then. ;ame the (5 rand Army band
of Canton, playing the solemn notes of
"Nearer My Uod to Thee." A moment
after entering tho cemetery tho music
was changed to Chopin's funeral inter
lude. Behind the band enmc the Grand
Army posts, fully GOO veterans march
After the veterans came in well set
ranks, with rifles at "arms port," the
men of the Sixth Ohio infantry of tho
national guard, the engineer corps of
the national guard from Cleveland and
tho comrades of tho late president in
the ranks of the Twenty-third Ohio
volunteers during the civil wnr.
Then came a long lino of carriages
bearing the members of the family and
tho distinguished visitors. From tho
first carrige that stopped at the foot
of the walk leading up to the vault
President Roosevelt and Commander
Cowles of tho navy alighted. The
president walked slowly toward tho
vault and took a position on tho south
side of the walk close to the door. As
Secretary Root came up tho walk ho
assumed a similar position on the
north side of tho walk and the other
members of the cabinet ranged them
selves by the side of the president und
secretary of war.
With bared heads tho president and
members of the cabinet, who were fol
lowed by tho ofllcers of tho army and
navy, stood on each side of the walk,
the lines reaching just to the edge or
the roadway. Within a mlnuto after
the formation of the line tho funeral
ear came up to tho walk. The casket
was gently lifted from the hearso and
borne to the door of the vault, whero
it was rested upon tho catafalque. It
was carried by the same men of the
army and navy who have carried it
ever since It left Iluffalo. Before them
walked Colonel lilnghnm, who had
been aido to President McKinloy. At
its head on tho right walked Lieuten
ant llnmlln of the army, and In a cor
responding position on the left Lieu
tenant Eberly of the navy. .lust as
the bearers lowered it to tho catafalque
Abncr MeKlnley and Mrs. Barber
alighted from their carrlago and stood
at tho foot of the line of ofllcers. They
remained hero for ,a few seconds and
then passed up to the foot of the cas
ket, where they remained during tho
brief sen ices.
There was a moment's pause as Col!
onel Bingham looked to see that all
was in readiness. Then ho looked to
ward Bishop Joyce os Minneapolis, who
read the burial service of tho Metho
Colonel Bingham waved his hand to
eight buglers of the Canton band, and
Instantly from the eight buglers rang
out the notes of the soldiers' last call,
"taps." When tho last note had float
ed away Secretary Wilson was in tears;
Secretary Hitchcock was also weep
ing, and the president wns gazing
grimly at the walk. It was all ended,
at Inst, and Captain Biddlc of Company
C of tho Fourteenth infantry, who will
command the guard which is to bo
placed arouud the vault, stepped up to
a line of five soldiers which he had
posted just north of the doorway and
who throughout tho ceremony had
stood at present arms as rigid as
though curved out of Iron. Ono of
them passed quickly into tho vault,
taking btation at tho head of tho cask
et, another placed himself at tho foot,
and three stood in the doorway, two
on the lower step and thu third on tho
floor of tho vault, directly behind
them. There they remained until af
ter the passing of the funeral proces
sion. ' Tho president and the members of
tho cabinet and tho ofllcers of the army
and navy entered their carriages, and
followed by the members of tho fami
ly passed out of tho cemetery and re
turned to tho citj Tho delay caused
by tho services at tho vault being over,
tho lU'occsslnn resumed its march.
Every man in the line, save those in
uniform, who rendered nppropriato
honor in other ways, went past the
casket with uncovered heads. As the
'tend of the division containing the
'Hghts Templars wheeled into tho
cciNry a quartet took up a position
to Uncouth of the vault and sang,
"FnreVjH, My Brother." This hymn
was foiowed by others Including
