Reedy in The Mirror, they felt assured he would not misuse it. Mr, McKinley was a simple man, and it was this simplicity which made many people deem him darkly deep. He was a frank man, so frank that he feared not to reverse himself to gain an end. He was a man who grew in his ideas until, just prior to his death, he stepped cut away beyond his party and himself and foreshadowed a generous measure of abandonment of doctrines of which he had been for years the most conspicuous representative. The man of one idea protection became a Pres ident of splendid scope and strength. The man who was once believed to know nothing other than tariff schedules, handled Senate and House so master fully as to make both content to ask of him only what he would and he should have it. The man who was dubbed a com mercialist led the country in a war for one of the truest ideals of humanity and inspired a whols country by the mansive nobility of his sentiments. That man gave the war a culmination impressive in its magnanimity to the vanquished. The black republican. McKinley was hailed by the south as its beet friend. By his tact, his grace, his kindness, his sympathy be wiped out sectionalism in this land.

Lincoln, eminently sane, supremely patient with those who knew not what they did, but never did it approach tyranny. He waited upon time and the prev alence of right reason, and he went ahead with the work or organizing gov ernment in the serence certainty that his principles would prevail here and in the archipelagos where the Hag had been unfurled. Gradually William McKinley won the love of the people as completely as he compelled the respect and admiration of the world. He won this love and respect and admiration by his firmness, his restraint, his reserve, his sincerity. All his words were words of benevolence and good will.
