hT President McKtnler In the direction of
affair in the Spaalah war:
Much has been written regarding the per
sonality of the late President McKlnley.
Tela article deals with Mr. McKlnley as the
Ideal commander In chief of the army and
nary of the United States. Never before In
the history of our country was there a
president who ao absolutely and devotedly
eommaaded the fighting forces of the
t'nlted States as did William McKlnley.
During the civil war the conditions were
widely different. The the commanders In
the Held had almost entire authority te do
as they plesaed with the forces of their
commands. Oeneral Grant seldom asked
for ordera from Washington, and he only
Infrequently received any. Not so dur I Ba
the Spanish-American war. Mr. McKlnley
waa, at all times, fully cognisant of even
the minutest details affecting the army and
navy. Conferences were held at the White
House every avenlng, and often lasted until
1, 2 and I o'clock In the morning. There
were present, usually, Secretary of War
Alger, Secretary of the Navy Long and
Oeneral Corbln, the adjutant general of the
army. The president required all military
orders to be submitted to him before being
Issued, and many of them today bear his
corrections In pencil.
Preparing for Invasion.
Tha night of June 7 and morning of the
th will long be remembered by those at
the White House. On the evening of the
.fth, upon the advice of Admiral Sampson
that he had bombarded the forts of Santiago
and urging that an army of not less than
10.000 men be sent there at once, a direct
wire was secured from the White House to
Tampa and General Shafter was Instructed
to rail Immediately. Within five minutes a
reply was received stating that It would be
impossible for him to get away before day
light the next day. Until about 2 o'clock in
the mornlcg telegrams were going to and
coming from Oeneral Shafter. The presi
dent wv-ited to know how many troops and
horses, would go with the first expedition;
If adr.quate quartermaster, commissary and
medical supplies were on board the ships.
Aft?r all this Information had been ob
tained the prealdent said to the operator:
"Tell him" (meaning General Shafter)
"good night and godspeed."
Early that morning, however, fe dispatch
wa received by the Navy department from
Admiral Remey at Key West, stating that
"Spanish armor cruiser, second class, and
Spanish ' torpedo boat destroyer seen by
Eagle, Nicholas channel, Cuba. Destroy
cenvoy. Details follow."
The secretary of the navy aroused the
president from his slumbers, and after
reading the message to him urged that
Oeneral Shafter be directed to delay the
movement until further advised. Again the
secretary of war and the adjutant general
were summoned to the White House, and
as soon as they arrived instructions were
given to delay the movement. It was not
until the 14th that the first troops left
Tampa for Cuban watera.
It waa at such timea as these, when
most of the officials were greatly excited,
that Mr. McKinley'a noble character and
presence of mind were most striking. Not
once did he become excited or ruffled, and
he seemed never to tire. On the other
hand, he was bright and cheerful.
Information at First Hand.
All cipher cablegrams received at the
Etate, War and Navy departments came
over wires that passed through tha tele
graph and cipher bureau of the White
House, and, under the direction of Captain
B. F. Montgomery, signal officer, U. S. A.,
these messagea were Immediately de
ciphered and handed the prealdent, so that
he waa Informed of all that waa transpiring
a soon as the officiate to whom tha mes
sages were addressed. Mr. McKlnley very
often would come to the telegraph bureau
and read the messages sheet by sheet, ai
they came over the wires, and not infre
quently the secretary of war, while reading
the same telegram, would receive a mes
sage over the telephone from the prealdent
directing him to come to the White Houae
Immediately to confer In regard to the dis
patch Just received. The secretary of war
would prepare a reply to a message, then
hand It to the president, who would make
his corrections. '
Colaoel Miller's command aalled from
Manila, to Hollo la December. 1898. Upon
hie arrival he met resistance and, having
no war abip, be was unable to. effect a
landing. Upon General Otis' report of this
fact and that the soldiers were suffering
greatly from the crowded condition of the
transpprta, the secretary of war prepared
an answer. The message was written on

NEW YORK. April 22. (Special Corre
spondence of The Bee.) The exercises at
tending the Installation of Dr. Nichols
Murray Butter aa the new prealdent of
Columbia university Saturday were the
most Impressive I bsve ever witnessed, and
I have witnessed a grest many formal
ceremonies, from presidential Inaugura
tions, church conclaves and national con
ventions down. The past year has marked
an era In great college functions, particu
lar among them, the Yale bl-centennlal,
the Johns Hopkina quarter-centennial and
the Columbia Installation. While I was
not present at either of the first two, those
who were In attendance upon all three

the others In representative character and

educational world would of Itself be a

Importance haa been enhanced by the pres

and representatlvea not only of the various
branches of the government, but also of
several foreign governments through their
members of tha diplomatic corps.
The handsome buildings In which the
university Is now boused on Mornlngslde
Heights never looked more Inviting, nor
could the occasion have been favored with
more propitious weather. From first to
lsst the program was carried out with no
perceptible hitch. In the room given over
to the reception of the Invited guests, col
lege presidents snd college professors were
welcomed by President Butler and a verita
ble reunion was brought about between
educational associates hailing from all sec
tions of the country.
The academic procession constituted a
display of university Insignia, which would
have been confusing were It not ao attrac
tive. Each member, arrayed in the aomber
academic gown, yet differentiated by vari
colored hoods, Indicating the degrees with
which he had been honored, joined In the

the undergraduates, and closed with Presi

of board averages $2.11 a week for an In
dividual. 'The project aeemed feasible from tha
first, because several students' clubs bsd
flourished during the school months of the

the association Is located." said Mrs. W.
W. Brown, one of the members. In an In
terview with a New York Tribune reporter.
"The first step In establishing the enter
prise was to organize under a constitution
and by-laws and to elect officers. The next
waa to rent a commodious centrally located
two-story bouse. Membership Is limited to
not less than fifteen or more than twenty
persons, and no new member Is admitted
without the unanimous consent of the asso

In the procession were two chancellors

asked after a number of friends, dating
