Most Radical Recommendation Coin

Mmm York Sun Sacclal Service
Washington, Sept. 26.—Members of the
cabinet are preparing elaborate summaries
of the work in their departments, which
are Intended to be embodied at least in
substance in President Roosevelt's first
annual message, to be submitted to con
gress next December. Having come into
the office of chief executive late in the
year as the result of calamity which, of
course, could not be foreseen, the presi
dent is entirely unfamiliar with the de
tails of the public work. Only a little
over two months remain before the meet
ing of congress and President Roosevelt
requested the members of his cabinet to
supplement their various annual reports
with comprehensive summaries, to be used
Id the message, either verbatim or with
such condensation as may be necessary.
President Roosevelt is a ready and for
cible writer and the preparation of a
message Las no terrors for him so far as
mere literary workmanship goes. He
feels, however, according to members of
the caL.net. a natural diffidence about
making a report upon the work done by
another and much beloved president.
The president has already begun
sketching out the message and he will
have the summaries from the different
departments within a short time.
By far the most Important part of Pres
ident Rcosevelt's message will be that
defining Lis own policy. Following out
the pledge he made when he took the oath
of office, the president will, in so many
words, adopt as his own the domestic and
foreign policy of William McKinley. So
far as the matter has been discussed in the
cabinet, tte president is understood to
have arranged iu his own mind to take the
Buffalo speech as the keynote and to elab
orate this line in the message to con
The Roosevlt administration will be
pledged in the president's message to con
tinue and extend the present colonial pol
icy in Porto Rico, Hawaii, and the Philip
pine islands. The development of Amer
ican trade in the orient and the malnte
i.ace of the open door in China will re
ceive in the message the heartiest ap
proval of the new president.
Two Xe.v Points. .
So far as the strictly new material in
the message is concerned, it is expected
to be confined to two points; first, a
graphic but simple and dignified recital
of the tragedy at Buffalo; and, secondly,
a suggestion on the part of Roosevelt him
self looking to the repression of anarchy,
or, rather, of the teachers of anarchy.
President Roosevelt is not expected to
make a recommendation for legislation
providing for extraordinary punishment
for the crime of attacking a president
of the United States. He is said to feel
that it might not be in good taste for him
to recommend a special punishment for
an assault which would be personal to
himself. He was decided, however, ' or,
at least, has talked strongly with' his
cabinet on the subject, to recommend
legislation for the repression, of anarchy
and such teachings as led Czolgosz to
. murder President McKinley. President
Roosevelt is expected to suggest a radi
cal overhauling of the federal immigra
tion laws in such a way as to render it
immediately possible to bar out professed
anarchists exactly as paupers and crim
inals are now forbidden to enter.
The president will make a strong pre
sentation of his belief that steps should
be taken by the federal government to
protect itself from such assaults as that,
at Buffalo, and to do this not so much by
increasing the punishment i for crime as
by preventing the spread of morbid con
ditions of mind which induce men to com
mit such crimes. In his talks to the
cabinet the president has laid particular
stress on this point, and has indicated
his belief that the crime of assassination
cannot be prevented by police or by sol
diers, but can be avoided by putting a
stop to the teaching of incendiary doc
trines and by preventing the importation
into this country of all such teachings of
anarchism and similar dangerous dogmas
Predictions are made by some members
of the cabinet that President Roosevelt's
declaration on this subject will be a strik
ing one, and will be a plea for the restric
tion of immigration to a degree to which

Taken altogether, judging by the re
ports of his trusted advisers, the first
message of President Roosevelt will be a
brilliant, tender and generous apotheosis
of William McKinley, for its one keynote
will be graceful yielding of credit in every
instance to the profoundly -wise policy of
his predecessor and a public official pledge
of the new president to carry that policy
to its full fruition.

Order Against Hazing Precipitated
CADETS WALKED OFF IN A BODY
Matters Adjusted To-day and Class
• Work and Drills Are Proceed
ing as Usual.
Spertal to The Journal.
Partbault, Minn., Sept. 26.—The little
flurry at Shattuek military school has
been adjusted and the student body has
returned to work.
At drill yesterday afternoon an order of
the rector prohibiting hazing was read
and it was made the duty of an officer to
promptly report all cases. The boys at
once objected and the four captains were
made a committee to wait upon the rector
and give him thirty minutes to counter
mand the order. Some 117 of the cadets
stood outside the " main building and
counted off the minutes and sang "Home,
Sweet Home." At the end of the half
hour the rector announced the order would
The mutineers then donned citizens
clothes and came down town, many of
them wiring for money with which to pay
passage home. They were a determined
lot and for a time matters loooked squally.
In the evening Head Master Richards
and Captain Law ton came to the city and
induced the recalcitrant cadets to return
to quarters, promising that all differences
would be settled to-day. It is given out
that the objectionable order will be re
scinded and with this understanding class
work is moving as usual.
The hazing consists in making the fresh
man appear ridiculous in the eyes of up
per cadets and is in no sense harmful.
The authorities would no doubt like to
stop the practice, but are hardly prepared
to combat the strenuous opposition so far

Baraboo, Wis., Sept. 26.—Dr. E. A.
Mueller, pastor of the First Methodist

and his whereabouts is unknown. No
member of his congregation knew he had

which was accompanied by a note stating
he "was crushed." Dr. Mueller was a sin

law of this state, Oct. 28 \s the earliest

The police arrangements at the city
hall, wher> Czolgosz was sentenced for
the murder of President McKinley, were
even more stringent than during the trial.
Half-an-hour before the time announced
for the opening of the court, the court- |
room was filled and the doors locked.
After 1:30 no one but officials connected
with the court or newspaper men were
allowed to enter. About 25 of the 150
spectators were men. The police cleared
the hallway of the crowd and no more
were allowed to come to the second floor
of the building.
At five minutes after 2 o'clock the pris
oner was brought into court shackled to
Detectives Heary and Solomon, accom
panied by Assistant Superintendent
Cusack end Jailor Mitchell. The crowd
sought to surge about them and it was
with difficulty that the tipstaves cleared
the channel down the aisle to the pris
Czolgosz was perspiring and seemed
nervous, though he did not tremble and
his gait was steady. As he took his seat
he mopped his brow with his handker
chief. When he settled back in his chair
his wonted listless attitude was absent.
He kept his eyes wide open and looked
about him occasionally, but presently he
dropped his eyes to the table ahead of him
and assumed his former listless air. The
strain on him was intense, evidently, as
was attested by a few sighs and a heaving
o? the chtst.
At 2:12 Justice White took his seat on
the bench ani the crier announced the
opening of court.
"Czolgosz, stand up," commanded District
Attorney Thomas Penney of the prisoner.
The assassin rose.
"What is your name?" asked Mr. Penney.
"Leon F. Czolgosz."
"Hew old are you?"
"Where -were you born?"
"Where were you living when arrested?"
"What is your occupation?"
"Are you married or single?"
"What degree of education have you re
"What schools have you attended?"
"Public and church schools."
"Are you temperate or intemperate?"
"Have you ever before been convicted of
"Are your father and mother alive?"
I "My lather la aUve. My mother Is dead,"
Czolgosz's replies were so low that he could
not be heard five feet away.
"Hare you any legal excuse why sentence
should not be pronounced against you?"
Czolgcsz could not or pretended he could
not hear the question put by the clerk. It
waa repeated to him twice and then he said
something in an inaudible tone. The judge
Intervened and explained what was meant by
"First, you may claim you are Insane. The
next is, have you good cause to offer against
sentence being. pronounced against you?" T
The . judge also -I stated ■ i legal reasons
the prisoner might have against sentence
being pronounced. * , . .
- "I have nothing to say about that," was
the reply. .
Justice Titus asked that the prisoner
be allowed to say something in 'exculpa
tion of his ■ crime. •'
Th» prisoner began to speak. His
voice was so low be could scarcely be
heard. Judge Titus was obliged to repeat
it sentence by sentence, bo that the court
"I bare nothing to say," -whispered
Czolgosz to his counsel.
Judge Titus—"l think he ought to bo
permitted to make a statement in exculpa
tion of his family." Turning to the pris
oner again Titus held a brief conference
and then turning to the court he said:
: "He says no other person had :
! anything to do with it; that no J
: other person knew of its com- :
: mission but himself. His :
: father or mother or no one else j
: knew nothing about it." i
The prisoner closed his lips, stared
straight ahead of him and awaited the
court's pronouncement of his doom. The
sentence was brief. ~ Said the court: -."
: Czolgosz, you have committed :
: a grave crime against the state :
: and our union in the assassina- :
' : tion of our beloved president. :
: After learning all the facts and :
I : circumstances in the case twelve :
: good men have pronounced you :

: mission of this terrible act. The :
: penalty is fixed by statute and it:
: becomes my duty to impose sen- :
: tence upon you. The sentence :
: of this court is that in the week :
: beginning Oct. .28th at the place :
: designated end in the manner :
: prescribed by law, you suffer the : .
: punishment of death. = > : ]
Czolgosz stood erect, looking straight
at the judge. He did not tremble j not a
muscle" quivered. : As soon as the death
sentence was finished he took his seat in
the same indifferent manner that has
characterized him throughout the trial.
He was brought to his feet quickly by the
officers at 2:20. They shackled him and
led him away to the jail, while the crowd
surged after them and the officers. ■' *-•
Sheriff Caldwell was asked/if he was
ready to take the prisoner to Auburn. He
replied: , _ - - .:
- You may say that no one but those who will
act as guards and myself will know the time
of departure. ! Even the guards will not be
notified until the last moment The mo
ment the prisoner is sentenced he passes into
my hands and from that time until he is de
livered at Auburn it will not be possible to
learn about the assassin's ■ movements.

court of inquiry began its session to-day
with the intention of holding one sitting,
have decided to forego the afternoon ses
sion in order to permit the members of
the court and, counsel to attend the
funeral of Judge Wilson. Counsel for the
navy department to-day continued their
efforts to show that Admiral Schley had
information of the presence of Admiral
Cervera and his fleet in the harbor at
Santiago, and introduced for this purpose
additional officers of the auxiliary cruisers
which were at the time doing duty as
scout boats in West Indian waters.
Captain Wise, who commanded the scout
ship Yale during the Spanish war, con
tinued his narration of the retrogade
movement of the flying squadron toward
Key West on May 27. -. He first told of how
the Yale had taken the Merrimac in tow
under direction of Admiral Schley. He
said that the admiral had signaled upon
startin gto ask if there was coal enough
to carry him to Key West, to which he
had responded ia the affirmative. " On the
next day he had reported, in response to
an inquiry, that he had coal sufficient
for two days of full steaming and for
four days of moderate steaming.
Reported to Sampson.
He was then dispatched to ■ Newport
News, reporting to Admiral Sampson on
the way. He had told Admiral Sampson
that the flying squadron was about thirty
miles west of Santiago. In response to
a question of the admiral he had said he
did not know what it was doing there. In
detailing the trip westward toward Key
West, the witness told of the breaking .of
the Yale's hawser on, the Merrimac. He
said this had caused delay. ■-:'_'

New York, Sept. 26.—The course for the
first cup race to-day was fifteen miles to
windward and return, starting from the
Sandy Hook lightship and running to a
point off the Long Island shore.
The preliminary signal was fired at
10:55, the warning signal at 11:05 and the
starting signal at 11:10. Both boats
crossed the line on the starboard tack,
but headed around immediately and went
on the port tack.

As the line was reached it became evi

the initial victory. He not only occu

Shamrock must allow Columbia gave the
latter an advantage of only 5 seconds
less than a full minute.

After crossing the line the yachts sped
away to the eastward, each on the port
The honors of the start were far and
away with the American boat. Captain
Barr had "out-generaled his rival and th©
battle was on with the American yacht
comfortably berthed to the windward.
After the two boats went about on the
starboard tack it was noted that Colum

and at 11:34 the American boat seemed to
appear more like her old self, for sha

Columbia Takes tlie Lead.
Columbia met Shamrock holding off
shore on the starboard tack, the latter
having the right of way if she could reach

Columbia, but it was not sufficient, and
the American boat passed ahead and took

As the yachts settled down steadily to
work, Captain Barr more than held his
own and every movement of Columbia
got all there was in the wind to give her.
While the boats were on the port tack,

given a good full and she romped away in
fine, style, giving the impression that she
was forging faster than the American
