They arK themselves on the sidewalk In
double rows opposite each other, and stood
with bared heads as the body was carried to
the hearse drawn up at the side gate. The
hoarse was handsomely carved and was drawn
by Fix coal bla-k horses, each of which was led
by & colored (room in black livery.
Just as the body was being placed In the
hearse an Incident occurred that caused a mur
ir.ur of disapprobation. A photographer from
a window nearby suddenly flashed a light for
the purpose of obtaining a reproduction of the
tcene. The flashlight and accompanying noise
made people shudder. President Roosevelt
reemed to be momentarily much disconcerted.
He turned In the direction of the light and
anal to his military aid, who went away to
stop any further attempt at taking pictures.
The hearse bearing the body of the third mar
tyred President quickly moved away and was
followed at once by President Roosevelt and
those accompanying him. In the President's
carriage were Secretaries Hay and Gage and
Commander Cowles. Secretaries Root and
Hitchcock. Attorney-General Knox and Past
master-General Smith followed in another car
riage, while Secretary Wilson. Secretary Cortel
you. Secretary Long and Senators Hanrta and
Fairbanks drove behind in other carriages. The
citizens' committee fr >m Buffalo, officers of the
army and navy and friends followed.
The military already were in line. As the pro
cession swept from the Sixth-st. station into
Pennsylvania-aye.. a deeply impressive sight
was presented. The historic thoroughfare was
hung in black. Emblems of the nation's mourn
ing were displayed on every building. The
Stars and Stripes, furled and knotted with
crape, floated from hundreds of windows. Over
all gleamed coldly scores of electric lights, de
fining sharply each detail of the solemn scene.
THOUSANDS PACK THE STREETS.
Banked on both sides of the avenue, from
Fixth-st to the Executive Mansion, were tens
of thousands of people. They had come to pay
their tribute of respect and love to the memory
o* their President. With bared heads and with
no murmur of sound the people watched with
tear stained eyes the last homecoming of Presi
dent McKinley. Tiere was no music. Amid the
hush of the gr?at crowds, only the clatter of the
hones' hoofs, ringing sharply on the pavement,
A platoon of mounted police, in command of
Bergemt Matthews, led the way. Next came a
delegation of Grand Army of the Republic men
from the Department of the Potomac, members
of the Union Veterans' Union and the Spanish
War Veterans, and Troops I and L of the 11th
Cavalry, from Fort Myer. Va.
Following the cavalrymen was the hearse.
3anked on either side by the body bearers, with
a detachment of Signal Corps men bringing up
the rear. The carriages containing the officials
*v*re next in line, that of President Roosevelt
being immediately behind the Signal Corps.
Scattered along at different parts of the pro
session were groups of army and navy officers
who had informally received the body at the
railroad station. It was about 9:30 o'clock when
the head of the procession reached the White
House grounds and turned into the driveway.
MRS. M'KINLEY VERT FEEBLE.
The carriage containing Mrs. McKinley. Dr.
'¦ asp and Abner McKinley had preceded the
Mineral procession to the White House. Dr.
, Rixey was the first to alight and then Abner
McKlnley. They tenderly assisted Mrs. Mc
vinley to the steps. With her right arm resting
leaviiy and wearily on the shoulders of her
it-ad husband's brother, and supported on the
Jther s^de by Dr. Rixey. she walked slowly

later that she had stood the Journey well
Meed, and they confidently expected that she
*-ould complete the sad journy to her old home
When the procession arrived at the White
House the hearse stopped under the porte
¦ her*. The body bearers took the coffin on
their shoulders, and, passing up three or four
Steps, waited until President Roosevelt and the
members of the Cabinet had alighted from their
rarriages and then followed them through the
wide open doors into the East Room.
COFFIN PLACED IN THE EAST ROOM.
Just in the centre of the room, under the
treat crystal chandelier, they deposited their
burden on a black draped base and stood at
salute while the new Chief Executive and the
Cabinet members with bowed heads passed by.
Following them came the chief officers of the
irmy and navy now in the city, the guard of
aonor consisting of officers of the Loyal Legion,
members of the Union Veterans' Union and the
Urand Army of the Republic.
President Roosevelt and the members of the
Cabinet left the house almost immediately and
Rere driven to their homes.
The coffin was placed lengthwise of the East
Room, the head to the north. Filed about it
were half a hundred floral emblems of ex
ceptional beauty, and as many more were placed
In the Inside corridor until to-morrow. Two
marines, a sold»er and a sailor, stood guard, one
at each corner of the coffin, while seated on
either side were two members of the Grand
Army and two members of the Loyal Legion.
These will be relieved at intervals of two hours
during the night.
Before midnight the household had retired to
lest, and the only lights to be seen were those
In the room where his comrades kept watch
over their dead chief.

FUNERAL TRAIN STARTS.
Continued from flrnt pun.
up to th= up*- of the President and his family.
DM Mr'-<-t owners near the house, whirh for a
week had been crowded with newspaper m»n,
teaagraaMC as Si hS and waiting carriages, re
sumed their wonted appearance; the guard was
withdrawn, the police resumed their normal oc
• uiatione, and the stirring incidents that have
marked the locality became a reminiscence.
RCCSKVELT GCES TC THE TRAIN.
President Roosevelt went to the train in an
unostentatious manner. He did not rise until 7
o'clock, and then had to be awakened by hi?
colored servant. He dressed quickly, and at
7 M o'i lock was ready for breakfast, which he
took with the family of hi- h"ft, Mr. Wilcox.
and did not hurry. Just after 8 o'clock, with Mr.
Wilcox and his secretary, William Loeb. he
entered a carriage and drove to the train. A
few mounted policemen followed the carriage,
and three or four detectives and Secret Service
men were near him. Otherwise there was noth
ing to distinguish him from any other citizen.
AT THE CITY HALL.
The slow and stately progress of the Presi
dent's body from the City Hall to the railroad
station afforded the people of Buffalo a last
opportunity to do honor to the memory of the
lamented executive. At daybreak the City Hall
was quiet and peaceful. The guards of honor
at the catafalque maintained their places
throughout the night. There was a sergeant of
artillery at the head of the bier and a marine
at the foot. At one side was a sergeant of in
fantry, and at the other another marine. The
doors of the building were eloped, and the outer
gates were bolted. A few minutes after 7 o'clock
the doors were llung open and the gates swung
ajar. At 7:07 forty sailors from the gunboat
Michigan, the first detachment of the escort,
marehrd up Franklin-st. They wheeled into line
directly opposite the entrance of the City Hall.
Four minute? later the hearse drew up, and a
company of marines filed into position. Five of
the Cabinet officers arrived in two carriages.
The first contained Secretary Long and Post
master-Oeneral Smith The other held At
torney-General Knox. Secretary Wilson and Sec
retary Hitchcock. Senator Joseph R. Hawley,
of Connecticut, was next to arrive.
Exactly at the appointed hour, 7:45 o'clock,
the escort was ready. Major Mann, command
ing the escort, gave the order "Present, arms!"
Noiselessly and with the precision of the well
drilled soldier the arms leaped into position; the
commanding officer turned about, and, facing
the City Hall, brought his sword to "present."
There was a moment of silence, and then the
eight body bearers, four soldiers and four sailors,
tame from the City Hall. Cn their shoulders rest
ed the coffin. Away down the line from the
<;.-ith Regiment Band came the strains of "Near
ear, My God, to Thee." Behind the long ropes
as one man the countless throngs uncovered
their heads as the coffin was borne slowly down
the steps and lifted gently into the hearse.
Through the windows nothing could be seen but
the American flag, surmounted by a sheaf of
MARCH TO THE RAILROAD STATION.
To the front came the troops, wheeling Into
line and moving down Franklin-st. The band
played Chopin's Funeral March and the church
bells began to toll. Behind the troops came the
carriages of the Cabinet officers. Then came the
hearse, and following were the Grand Army
men, with a company of local militia bringing
up the rear. The procession passed into Church
st., and, winding past St. Paul's Church into
Main-st., the dead President was carried on his
last journey through Buffalo's streets.
Down Main-st. the procession moved between
masses of bareheaded people. At Elllcott-st. it
was met by the carriage containing President
Roosevelt. By the President's orders his car
riage was stopped, and with bared head the na
tion's new Executive awaited the passing of the
procession. Once more the troops were drawn
into line and came to "present."
The hearse stopped in front of one of the
baggage entrances to the station. As the un
dertaker took hold of the door to open it and j
the bearers prepared to draw the coffin out. a •
hush fell on the multitude. Then, from the head '
of the column, came the "long roll." As it ceased
came the notes of "Nearer, My God, to Thee."
The soldiers raised the flag covered coffin on
their shoulders and moved toward the train, and
from "Nearer. My God. to Thee." the band
went into the hymn, "O God, Cur Help in Ages
On the curb stood President Roosevelt with
Senator Hawley. He had refused the advice of
the police to move into the station yard, and
with his hat in his hand stood silently watching
the removal of the body. General Brooke and
biF staff fell in directly behind the coffin, next
fame the President. Secretay Cortelyou and
Senator Hawley. anr* then, walking with his
cane for assistance. Senator Hanna, accom
panied by his son. followed.
Mrs. McKinley and the other members of the
family had been in tneir car half an hour when
ih<- body arrived. The Journey in the carriage,
from the windows of which she could see the
emblems of mourning, affected her seriously,
and when she stepped from the carriage, as
sisted by Dr. Rixey and Abnei McKinley. her
limbs tailed her, and sh° would have fallen but
for the support given to her. She entered the j
station, and was assisted into the car in which
she and President McKinley had marie the trip
her- from Canton. Cn the car her relatives
took charge of her, and Dr. Rixey gave her a
tonic. Dr. Rixey thinks she will he able to go
through with the state ceremonial at Washing
ton, but the change, of arrangements so that |
the body shall leave Washington on Tuesday j
night was made so as to avoid too great a '
strain. "She will be b°tter in Canton than I
any other place," said Dr. Rixey
The coffin was placed between the windows of
the observation car. where it could be seen hy
the people as the train went by. The two loco
motives and the rear and railings of the ob
servation car were shrouded in crape. The
only relief was in two tiny pilot flags of white
on the leading loeomotiv*.
President Roosevelt entered the station with
Secretary Cortelyou, and the members of the
Cabinet followed, and they boarded the train.
Shortly after K : :;0 it was announced that every
thing was in readiness, and at S ; :',4 the train
pulled slowly out, four minutes behind schedule

George F. Seymour, of this diocese, said to day
In regard to the dead President:

leaves us. m his dying words, his precious legacy
of pathetic prayer for our welfare, "Goodby all,
God be with you all," and his splendid example
of unreserved resignation to the will of God,

contrast with the darkness of death, "It la God's
will; God's will be done."

THE SAD JOURNEY SOUTH.
GREAT CROWDS ALONG ALL THE ROUTE
show love AND HONOR to
':.y'\: : \'-
Emporium. Perm., Sept. 16.— At Clean the
train slowed down and passed through dense
masses of people. The little town of Mute bore
a suggestive name, and there, as well as at
Westons, Bullis Mills and Portville. there were
the came dense throngs, standing with uncov
ered heads. A minute's stop was made at Port
Allegany. Thousands were standing on either
side of the track. Every head was bare.
Before arriving at Clean Mrs. McKlnley ex
1 pressed a wish to sit beside her dead husband.
Dr. Rixey was at first averse to granting the re
quest, not wishing to tax her strength,' but she
pleaded so earnestly that reluctant assent was
at last given, and the watchers at the track
caught a glimpse of a bowed form beside the
flag covered coffin as the train went whizzing by.
Renovo, Perm., Sept. 16. — Two engines were
used to pull the heavy train up the mountains.
After leaving Clean the train descended into
the valley of the Susquehanna. At Emporium
Junction one of the engines was taken off. The
route continued down the beautiful valley of
the Susquehanna as far as Harrlsburg. At the
little town of Driftwood, which was reached at
12:30 o'clock, the entire population of the town
was massed behind a little band of Grand Army
veterans, who had planted a furled crape
trimmed flag in front of them. Renovo was
reached at 1:05 p. m. Here the train crews and
engines were changed.
Williamsport, Perm., Sept. 16. — At Renovo
ropes had been stretched to keep back the
crowds which surged through the neighboring
streets. A big flag with President McKlnley's
picture framed in crape was strung from corner
to corner of the station, and in front of It were
hundreds of school children, their hats in their
hands, and their little faces grave. This was
the terminus of one of the railroad divisions, and
the train hands were all lined up with bared
heads. Some of those who travelled with Presi
dent McKinley to California last spring re
called how often when train crews were changed
on that trip President McKlnley had sent for
the trainmen personally to express his thanks.
President Roosevelt took luncheon in the din
ing car of the train with Secretary Root at 1:30.
The members of the Cabinet and others aboard
the train had preceded him into the dining car.
Mrs. McKinley and her immediate party re
mained in the car Olympia. which was provided
with a special dining service.
At Willinmsport, which was reached at 2:30,
there was a remarkable demonstration, the feat
ure of which was the presentation of an Im
mense floral offering by five thousand school
children of the city. It was received by Colonel
Bingham, the President's aid. He stood on the
platform of the observation car In which the
catafalque lay exposed to view, and the scene
was profoundly impressive.
At Lockhnven the young women of the city
lined up along the track and strewed the path
of the dead President with flowers. Some had
baskets brimming full of color, and others held
the fragrant blossoms in their arms. They
poured the wealth of their floral offering beneath
the wheels. Each small town had conceived
pome distinct way of its own to show its respect
for the dead.
Sunbury. Perm.. Sept. 16.— The passage
through this city, which is midway "between
Williamsport and Harrlsburg, of the special
train bearing the remains of President Mc-
Kinley was a sorrowful sight and on* long to
be remembered. Third -st . through which the
Pennsylvania runs, was literally covered with
; flogs and bunting, all heavily draped with
crape. As previously arranged, all business was
suspended, and the entire population gathered
on either side of the street. No demonstration
was made, a dead silence prevailing. As the
train passed slowly through the throng all hats
were lifted, and from wet eyes and bowed heads
the funeral train was watched until its dlsap
perance in the distance. a etop was made at
the station long enough to allow the corre
spondents to file dispatches. Companies X and
K. l'Jth Regiment, headed by Colonel C. M.
Clement and staff, served as an e.«cort for the
train through the town.
Harrlsburg, Perm., Sept. 16— The funeral
train reached Harrlsburg at 4:45 p. m. and re
sumed its Journey five minutes later. During
the wait at Union Station 300 members of the
Harrlsburg Choral Society sang "Nearer, My
God. to Thee" and "America." Companies I)
and I. Sth Regiment. N. G. P.. and the Gov
ernor's Troop were drawn up along the track '
and stood at Present arms" as the train passed
Before the train reached here the crush at th*
station was so great that the militia was railed
on by the railroad authorities to drive the crowd
back. It is estimated that there were 30,000
persons crowded In and about the station to
pee the, train. Governor and Mrs. Stone were
in the crowd, but they were unable to get near
the train. The local Grand Army posts also
turned out to do honor to the memory of the
dead President. Business throughout the city
was generally suspended from 4:80 until 5
o'clock, and the courthouse ben and numerous
other bells tolled during the period.
All freight and passenger traffic on the Penn
sylvania Railroad, between kville and Har
rlsburg. was suspended at 4:'2.~ and resumed
after the funeral train left the Union Station.
A Baltimore crew took charge of the train from
A remarkable spectacle was presented as the
train moved across the long bridge spanning
the Susquehanna from Harrisburg. On either
side of the stream, up and down for miles, the
banks teemed with legions of people. From
the brink of the stream they were in solid
masses to the trees far In the background. On
the bridge itself urchins had clambered into
the tangle of steel at the sides and roof. On
the surface of the river, In a flotilla of row
boats and yachts, hundreds more looked up at
the train of death. On the far side of the
bridge another dense crowd lined the tracks
and with bared heads peered into the cata
Again at York the train moved for half a
mile between avenues of solid humanity and
windows and housetops alive with people. By
this time the sun was getting low. and in the
throngs were hundreds of workmen with their
dinner pails. Everywhere the same scenes of
honor and sorrow that had gone before were
Washington. Sept. Hl.— Night came on as the
train sped from York to Baltimore without a
stop, and in the darkness only the flickering
lights along the way and the tolling of bells at
the stations bespoke that the manifestations of
sorrow were still going on. As the train drew
into Baltimore black masses of people could be
seen ranged upon the huge viaducts which span
the line of the road, and at every street crossing
a living tide surged up to the train. Nearing
the station, the locomotive literally ploughed its
way among flowers, for great maspes of blos
soms had been strewn along the pathway of the
Inside the station the Iron railing held back a
surging multitude, while within the rail the en
tire force of the city postofflce was. drawn up on
one side of the track, with banners wound with
crape, and the force of the custom house on the
other side. In front of the crowd stood Mayor
Hay.es and his sister, each bearing great
clusters ct roses and palms— a tribute from the
city to be placed on the bier of the dead Presi
dent. As the flowers were passed within the
train. th« notes of "Nearer, My God, to Thee"
again arose. A moment later the train was off
for the final destination. At Baltimore the en
tire makeup of the train was reversed, the car
bearing the catafalque now being at the front,
while that of Mrs. McKlnley and the relatives,
President Roosevelt and the Cabinet and public
officials followed in the order named.
It was shortly before 8:30 o'clock that the
distant lights of the national capital came into
view. Now the preparations for taking the coffin
from the train began. The stalwart soldiers and
sailors who were to bear it from the car were
summoned to their posts. As «ne train ran
through the suburbs the knots of people along
the way gradually swelled to hundreds and
then to thousands. At 8:40 o'clock the train
swept into the station, around which a great
concourse was waiting to receive its dead.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S SOMCITUDE FOR
MEN" WHO SERVED IN CIVIL WAR.
Willamsport. Perm., Sept. I(s.— The presence of
five veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic
on the funeral train brought out an Interesting
incident showing the considerate attitude of
President Roosevelt toward the old soldiers.
The thirty-fifth Nation si Encampment. G. A.

them Immediately In rear of the hearse, from
the MUburn house to the City Hall on Sunday,
and thence to the funeral train on Mon
day morning, and was represented by his adju
tant-general and by other comrades of the De
partment of New-York.
The President's greeting to the Grand Army
committee was gracious. He said: "I am
pleased, very much pleased, to receive you; and
while for obvious reasons I cannot make an as
signment such as you propose, I will write a
note to Secretary Cortelyou, with the hope that
he will be able to do so. I know it Is what the
dead President would have desired, and it is
what 1 desire."
The note written by the President was handed
to Secretary Cortelyou. who said: "In making
arrangements for the funeral. I thought/ of the
Grand Army officers. In the multitude of my
duties I necessarily had to refer many matters,
and that of the Grand Army of the Republic

fined In the penitentiary, whence he was brought
to the jail in a clos?d carriage this afternoon
arid from there taken in the underground pas
sageway to the City Hall.
MURDERER BROUGHT TO THE BAR.
At 5:39 p. m. the murderer of the President
was led into the courtroom. Not more than
one-third of the benches In the room were occu
pied. Two blocks away great throngs of people
were crowding up and down Main-st., pausing
in groups to discuss the assassin's diabolical
work. He did not dream that he was near to
them. Probably the authorities did not intend
that the people should learn of the arraign
ment of the assassin, yet had it been placarded
on the billboards of the . city it is doubtful
whether there would have been any considerable
demonstration, because the ferocity and ven
geance of the people seem to have subsided
greatly with the departure of the President's
body. Much of the morbid interest in Czolgosz
appears to have been lost, and the people in
cline to speak of him with a shudder, as if he
were some hideous reptile.
Manacled to the officers, Czolgosz walked to
a position directly in front of the Judge's bench,
where he was brought to a sudden halt by a
Jerk at the handcuffs. There was no waste of
time or sentiment. Judge Emery looked down
at him with a glance that would have withered
a sensitive man. The chief of .detectives, Mr.
Cusack. at his right, gave him a look that
seemed to burn. Detective Geary, on his left.
with a clenched fist, glowered at him, and every
eye in the room flashed with a visible hatred.
REFUSES TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.
District Attorney Penney turned to him from
his place at the head of the long table and said,
"Czolgosz. have you got a lawyer?" No answer
from the defendant. "Do you want a lawyer?"
Still no answer. "You have been Indicted for
murder in the first degree. Do you want a law
yer to defend you?" No answer. "Czolgosz,
look at me and answer." To all this effort on
the part of the District Attorney there was no
reply. The prisoner did not so much as turn
his eyes upon the Judge. He stood motionless,
his face without color, eyes roaming restlessly,
and, as it would seem, almost vislonless, to all
parts of the room. Sometimes the eyeballs
were rolled upward so that the whites showed,
and it gave the pale, unshaven face a ghastly
look as the man stood there statuellke. color
less and dumb. The District Attorney turned
to the court: "If your honor please, the defend
ant declines to answer, and I respectfully sug
gest that counsel be assigned to defend this
man and to ascertain what he might better do
on his plea to the indictment."
The judge — "Czolgosz, have you counsel?"
Again the vacant stare and silence.
The judge, turning to the detectives— "Do the
officers know whether or not this defendant lias
any counsel?" Mr. Cusack said sternly, "No."
THE ASSIGNMENT OF COUNSEL.
The court— "Czolgosz having appeared in court
for arraignment without counsel, the law makes
it the duty of the court Is assign counsel. The
Bar Association of this county has considered
the matter and suggested the. names of certain
gentlemen of high character for such assign
ment. The court has seriously considered the
question, and after such consideration has con
cluded to follow the suggestions made by the
association. The court therefore assigns 'he
Hon. Loran L. Lewis and the Hon. Robert c.
Titus as your counsel. The officers will notify
Judge Lewis and Judge Titus of such assign
District Attorney Penney replied: "I will do
that, Fir. or have it done."'
That was all. Detective Geary Jerked at the
handcuff that bound him to the man. as one
might pull at the strap of a vicious dog. and
the officers and their prisoner went clanking
down the marble stairs, followed by a small
crowd of men who merely crowded and gaped
and said nothing.
DESCRIPTION OF THE ASSASSIN.
The assassin, as he stood there in the full
light of the afternoon sun streaming in upon
him. made a picture that no one could well re
frain from looking at with more than scrutiny.
His face and his bearing are not those of the
ordinary man. and not those of the ordinary
criminal beast. There was a sense of mystery
about the face of the man. The photographs
which have been printed of him do not give one
anything approaching an accurate idea of the
real expression of the face. It is so reposeful
that one has the feeling that the man does not
hear or does not understand the words spoken to
him: that he Is oblivious to all taking place
about him. transfixed by some satisfying vision.
With the exception of a clean white shirt and
collar, he wore the same clothes he had on when
he shot the President. His suit is apparently a
medium priced ready made one. light gray, with
the trousers well worn and baggy at the knees.
He wore no necktie, and his collar, an old
style "turn down." sat loosely and 111 fitting
about his neck. He has not been shaved since
the crime was committed, and the ten days*
growth of black beard upon his white chin and
cheeks seemed to add to the peculiar ghastll
nojs of the face.
It Is expected that he will be again arraigned
In the county court to-morrow before Judge
Emery, when his counsel will be present, and
that he will be brought to trial In the criminal
term of the September court, next week.
SELECTION OF COUNSEL APPROVED.
The selection of former Judges Lewis and
Titus to defend him Is generally approved by
the leading lawyers of Buffalo to-day. They say
that it is much better that men of high char
acter and reputation like these be chosen than
to bring In as his counsel some Irresponsible
lawyer who would take the assassin's case
merely for the advertising it would afford. At
torney Ansley Wilcox in speaking of the matter
to-night said: "It Is a master stroke, and I
most heartily approve the course taken by the
Erie County Bar Association In selecting these
men, and I am very glad that Judge Emery as
signed them. I think the lawyers of the whole
country will approve the course taken."
It is understood to-night that both men as- \
signed will accept. Both Mr. Lewis and Mr.
Titus are former Supreme Court Justices. Judge
Lewis is a Republican and Judge Titus a Demo
crat. Judge Lewis served his full term, while
Judge Titus is one of the six Superior Cn urt
judges who under th- provisions of •-.¦ -.... «., t
State constitution of lsf>i was transferred from
the Superior Court to the Supreme Curt K
has serv-d one term as Distri. t Attorney of Eri*
