Canton , O. , Sept. 20. With innjostlc
Eoloninlly , surrounded by Ills country
men and his townspeople , lu the pres
ence of the president of tha United
States , the cabinet , the justices of the
United States supreme court , senators

town and swelled to the proportions
of a great city. From every city and
hamlet In Ohio , from the remote cor
ners of the south and the east and
west , the human tide flowed Into the
town , until 100,000 people were within
Its gates , bore to pay thqjr last trib
ute to the fallen chief.
The flnal scenes ut the First Metho-
91st church , where the funeral serv
ice , were held , and at the beautiful
West. Lawn cemetery , where the body
was consigned to a vault , were simple
and impressive. The services at the
church consisted of a brief oration ,
prayers and the singing by a quartet.
The body 'was then taken to West
Lawn cemetery and placed in a re
ceiving vault , pending the time it will
be laid to rest beside the dead children
who were buried years ago. The fu
neral procession was very imposing
and included not only the representa
tives of the army and the navy of the
United States , but the entire military
strength of the state of Ohio , and hun
dreds of civic , fraternal and other
organizations. It was two miles long.
Ono of the most pathetic features of
the day wns the absence of Mrs. Me-
Klnlcy from the funeral services at
the church and cemetery when the
tody of her husband was laid to rest.
Since the first shock of the shooting ,
then of death , through the ordeal of
state ceremonies , sac had borne up
bravely. But there was a limit to
human endurance , and when yesterday
came it found her too weak to pass
through the trials of'the final cere
monies. Through the open door of
her room she heard the prayer of the
minister as the body was borne out of
the house. Dr. Rlxoy remained close
by her side and , although the full force
of the calamity had come upon her , it
was believed by .those about her that
there was n providential mercy in her
tears , as they gave some relief to the
anguish of the heart within.
At' .7 o'clock last night President
Roosevelt and his cabinet started back
Streets Jammed With People.
For many hours before the time
Bet for the commencement of the fu
neral services at the McKinley home ,
the streets along the entire length of
the line of march were crowded with
spectators. From the gates of the
cemetery to the doors of the church ,
there was on each side of the street
an almost unbroken line of soldiers
and at the intersecting streets detach
ra'ents of militia were placed , about
100 feet from the thoroughfare upon
; whlch the cortege was to go , and no
body was permitted to pass In either
direction. There vas not a window
that commanded a view of the line of
march that was not filled with faces ,
the numerous stands wore crowded to
their utmost , and on the roofs wore
hundreds of people. From U o'clock
In the morning until 5 In the afternoon ,
'which tlmo the last of the parade had
passed the church on Its way to the
cemetery , this condition prevailed.
All day long the streets wore kept
olenr by the military , and not a vc-
hlclo of any description was permitted
to enter upon them.
Notwithstanding thn elonso crowds ,
there were no accidents of any kind
No greater reverence has over been
nlioxxn to any mini , living or doa < . urn
\UIH exhibited toward the dead PIVH- !
dent. As the funeral car pasm-d
through the streets men and women
Bobbed convulsively and at the ceme
tery gates , where the crowd was
densely packed and where the people
had remained for hours , pressing
against the Iron fence , two women
fainted during the exercises at the
It was a wonderful tribute of sur
passing love that was yesterday shown
In his natlvo place to the memory of
William McKlnley , and It will be long
before greater or moro leverASst honor
Is paid to any man.
For nearly an hour before the head
of the luneral procession arrived at
the gate of the cemetery , the strains
of the dirges played by the band came
over the hilltops to the \vnlohern by
the vault , telling them that the pro
cession was on Its way. Finally at
li.IJO o'clock the detachment of mount
ed police , heading the procession ,
came around the corner and passed
up to the cemetery gates. Hohlncl them
came the Grand Army hand of Canton ,
the solemn notes of "Nearer , My God ,
to Thee , " welling out as It came up
the driveway. Hehlnd the band came
the Grand Army posts , fully 500 of the
veterans marching by. As they
passed along the llowor strewn path ,
many of them were weeping bitterly ,
and they stooped by dozens to gather
the blossoms which lay at their feet
and carried them away as mementoes.
After the veterans came In well set
ranks the men of the Sixth Ohio infan
try of the National Guard , the engi
neer corps of the National Guard from
Cleveland and the comrades of the
late president In the ranks of the
Twenty-third Ohio volunteers during
the civil war.
Then came a long line of carriages
bearing the members of the family and
the distinguished visitors. From the
first carriage that stopped at the foot
of the walk , leading up to the vault ,
President Hoosevclt alighted , walked
slowly toward the vault and took a
position close to the door.
As Secretary Hoot came up ho as
sumed a similar position on the other
side of the walk , and the other cabinet
members arranged themselves 1 > > the
sides of the president and secretary.
The president and members of the
cabinet were followed by officers of
the army and navy , who stood on each
side of the walk , the lines reaching
just to the edge of the roadway.
Within a minute after the formation
of the lines the funeral car came up to
the walk. The casket was lifted from
the hearse and borne to the door of
the vault , where It was rested on the
catafalque. It was carried by the same
men of the army and navy who have
carried it ever since it left Buffalo.
Colonel Bingham waved his hand to
eight buglers of the Canton band , who
had taken station upon the side of
the mound. Instantly from the eight
bugles rang out the notes of the sol
dier's last call "taps. " It was beau-
tllully done and the last notes of the
bugles died away so softly that all
who heard it remained listening for
a few seconds to hear if it was really
ended. When the last note had floated
away Secretary Wilson was in tears ,
Secretary Hitchcock was also weeping
and the president was gazing grimly
at the walk. It was the last moment
for the men who had been so closely
associated with the president for so
long and the thought seemed to most
of them greater than they could bear.
Soldiers Stand Guard.
It was exactly four minutes past -1
o'clock when the funeral car bore the
remains of the dead president through
the gateway of his last resting place.
Twenty minutes after that time the
brief ceremony at the vault was over ,
thf > members of the family and distin
guished men of the nation , who had
come so far to do him honor , had
passed through the gates on their
homeward way. One hour and twenty
minutes after the hearse had entered
the cemetery the place was clear and
the dead president was resting alone
under the watchful care of the men
of the regular army. A'sentry's tread
resounded from the cement walk be
fore the vault , another kept vigil on
the grassy slope above , , and at the
head and foot of the casket stood
Hia Lact Resting Place.
Nature has been kind in selecting
the last resting place for President
McKlnley. West Lawn cemetery is
on a high knoll , overlooking the peace
ful valley , with the little city of Can
ton laid out below. Here the body of
William McKlnley is laid to rest. The
beauty of the grounds attracted the
attention of the country's best land
scape gardeners , who have Journeyed
hero to study Its attractions. Just In
side the stately entrance stands the
gray stone vault , where for a tlmo the
casket will repose. Its dreary ex
terior was relieved by great masses
of flowers , banked all about until the
gray walls were shut out from view
But In duo time It will be taken from
the vault and committed to the little
plot of ground lying further on. This
Is the McKinley lot and here Ho his
father , whoso name ho bore , the
mother ho guarded so tenderly In life ,
Ills brother James , his sister Anna
and his two children. And when that
time comes a stately shaft of granlto
will arise above the grave telling of
the civic virtues , the pure life and the
martyred death of William McKinloy.

Torpedo Boat Destroyer Cobra
Goes to Bottom.
ALL BUT 12 LOSE THEIR LIVES.
Fastest Venocl Afloat Strikes a Rock
Soon After Leaving Builders' Yards
and Goes Down Worst Disaster
Since Victoria Catastrophe.
London. Sept. 'JO. The torpedo boat
destroyer Cobra , the fastest VCHUO ! In
the world , has foundered In the North
sea , the result of an explosion after
striking a rock. The whip was en route
from the yard of UH builders , the Arm-
BtrongH of Newcastle , to Portsmouth ,
and carried a crew of 00. All were
lost with the exception of 1men ,
who weie landed at MIddlenboro.
Five boats were launched after the
Cobra struck , but Home of then were
Bwamped In the heavy sea which was
running at ( lie time.
The first Intimation of the disaster
was the arrival of a fishing boat at
Yarmouth with six bodies which it had
picked up in the vicinity of the spot
whoio the Cobra was last seen. Ac
cording to the fishermen the Cobra
was sighted by the lightship off
Dowsing Sands yesterday morning en
veloped In steam and It shortly after
ward disappeared. The men on the
lightship mipposcd the Cobra had
sailed away , until evening , when they
observed bodies floating In the water
and signalled to the llshlng boat to In
vestlgale the disaster.
Torpedo boats have gone to Uio
scene of the disaster , which Is'tho
most Herious the British navy has suf
fered since the sinking of the Vic
toria. Lieutenant Bosworth Smith ,
the Cobra's commander , stood upon
the bridge with his arms folded , an
impassive as Ifvon paiadc , and went
down with the vessel.
About one year ago the Cobra beat
the record of the Viper and won the
title of the fastest vessel In the world.
The record of the Viper , which was
afterward wrecked , was 43 miles an
hour , while the Cobra , in an unofficial
trial over the same course as that
sailed by the Viper , at the mouth of
the Tyne , made 37.7 knots , or 45.3
miles. The Cobra was an exact clupll
cate of the Viper.
