Life Story of a Great and Good Man
WASHINGTON.' Feb. 15.-Senalor
Marcus ' Alonzo Hanna ' died at , 6:10
o'clock tonight at the family apart
ments in. the. Arlington. hotel, after an
illness extending over, nearly two
months.' 'Ailed with apparent recoveries
followed -by relapses, and finally drift
ing Into,, typhoid fever, which in his
weakened condition he was unable to
withstand. When, the end came all the
members of the Senator's family, were,
in the room except Mrs. Hanna. .tho
Senator's wife, and Mr. and Mrs. Dan
Hanna. ' Mrs. Hanna had left the room ,
only a' few minutes before .
The. last sinking spell began -at
exactly 6:30 o'clock. Doctors Carter and
Osier "were then in attendance. - They
did not conceal the fact that life way
about to end, and all the members of the
'- ' irmmri
family were sent for. Mrs. MeCormlck.
ope of the Senator's daughters, and. Miss
Phelps were present when the - end
,dlr. and Mrs. Dan Hanna -were, the
first to arrivcj, and. they withdrew, im
mediately to the chamber of the Sena
tor's wife to summon 'her to the bed
side. It was while they were absent
that the Senator breathed his last.
' There were no distressing Incidents
attending the last moments. It .was a
sinking spell ,whleh terminated in ten
minutes. Just after his eyes closed In
death Mrs. Hanna was able to come Into
the room. She bore up well under the
ordeal, and tonight she is showing
calmness and bravery. The courage
which had been displayed by Mrs?.
Hanna was the subject of the greatest
surprise. She had been In almost con
stant attendance on her husband,
though realizing fully there waa no hope
for recovery. Nevertheless, the remon
strances of tho physicians and the
added implorlngs of her children that
she lake some rest were unavailing un
til late In the afternoon, when she was
attacked by a violent headache. She
' was given a narcotic and then she re
tired to her chamber, but requested that
a call be sent as soon as there appeared
any change for the worse.
CONSCIOUS ONLY AT INTERVALS.
For the last two days Senator Hanna
had not been conscious except at Inter
vals, and then only to obey mechani
cally some Instructions given him by
the" physicians. Fourteen hours before
the end was announced life had prac
tlcaliv suspended, the nickering spark
being kept aglow by the most power
ful scientific agencies. .
Word of the Senator's death went over
the hotel like a flash. The lobby was
crowded, and a score of friends were
waiting in Mr. Dover's room. No at
tempts were made to restrain grief.

(By A. F. Philips.) j J I
WASHINGTON. Feb. 15. News ofsl
the death of Sonator Hanna was a sc-'
orc blow to the members of bbth
branches of Conirrers.
Senator Smoot, In -speaking of Sena
tor Hanna. paid him a beautiful trib
ute, not from a partisan standpoint
only, but as a man.
' Tho last day Senator Hanna was In
his seat in the Senate," said Senator
Smoot, "I had a talk with him. While
he was cheerful, I could see that ho
was exceedingly weak. He looked to
me as If he needed rest. Nature has
made its demand and Senator Hanna
is now talcing that long rest that comes
to us all. His death Is a loss to our
party, but greater than that. It is a
loss to our country. No one who knew
Senator Hanna could help loving him.
Blg-heartud, blg-bralncd, possessed of
a wonderful magnetism, he drew all to
ward him. His greatest characteristics
wtro his strong friendship for his
friends and his wonderful ability to or
ganize and lead men.
"Talking with me only a short time
ago, he said- 'Senator Smoot. I have
I 'no desire to be President. I have al
ways had one ambition everyone has
that. Mine has been, and is, to draw
the employer and employee together,
to prove to them that their Interests
are identical, that neither can exist
without the other. Could I do this I
would be content. It would be more to
me than the Presidency of the United
States, a position which I believe to be
the greatest of any on earth.' It will
. be difficult to find another leader like
, him. His death will be mourned as few
are mourned. A great man, a greater
American, is gone."
WAS A REMARKABLE MAN.
Senator Hepburn of Idaho said:
"Senator Hanna was one of the most
remarkable men In public llfo. He
combined the keenest political judg
ment aB to organization and the per
fection of carrying out political plans
with a statesmanlike mind, distin
guished for Its conservative judgment
and action in legislative matters. I re:
call no man In public life who came so
late into the political field and accom
plished so much, from an Individual
standpoint ana tor me Desi in teres. i l
the party to which "he belonged.
"Before the convention of 1806 he was
known only as a business man of ex
ceptional ability and successful, who
had won the friendship and confidence
of an aspirant for tho high office of
President. Much of the success which
resulted In the election of President
McKinley of 1S9G Is attributable to the
efforts of Senator Hanna.
"His vigor of mind and capacity for
usefulness was at its best when be was
stricken with his last Illness. He was
endowed with the attributes of a great
man capable to fill, with honor to him
self, the highest office in the gift of
"I knew him ns an affable and kind
gentleman, ready and strong In coun
sel and fearless In action, and I Join
With all of the people In deploring the
loss occasioned by his death."
A NATIONAL CALAMITY.
Congressman Howell said: "Senator
Haniia's death is a national calamity.
His political career has been a moat
marvelous one and entirely unique In
tho history of American politics. Not
until late In life did he enter upon this
latest stage of his careor, in. which his
udvent was received with some distrust
and criticism; but the American people
soon learned to admire and to trust
"He was not a philosophic dreamer,
but a practical, constructive statesman.
This has been fully demonstrated by
! his influence in tho Senate and party (
councils in shaping national politics.
While not an orator, yet the sincerity
of his purpose and the direct. Impres-
ivc manner -ot hl6 speech carried con- H
vlction His late campaign in Ohio
bears this out wonderfully. He was art ( H
apt student of men and affairs and haib i H
the faculty of winning friends to a won- VM
derful desree, and to thes?e frlonds ho H
was always true. They, in turn, trust- I
ed Implicitly In his wisdom and unerr- . I
lng judgment, and felt that he of all jM
the able men of tho Republican party , !
had a better comprehension of the varl-' ' H
ous conflicting elements and was there- I H
fore best able to lead them to victory.! f H
As one possessing capital, he was aa 1 Jl
extensive employer of labor, and by H
him labor was held In tho highest es-
teem. Therefore, as an arbitrator he ,
Avon the confidence of both of these-
great modern and too often contending (
factions. He had of late expressed. , i ,
himself as being very desirous to de- i
vote his remaining years toward pro- i
motlng a better understanding of the , i
relations between capital and labor. To 1
do this work he was eminently quali
fied and would surely have accom
plished much. Such ambition Is of the !
highest order of practical philanthropy. I I
May his life be'an Inspiration to other
captainn of industry." j j
A GREAT LEADER. j !
Senator Warren of Wyoming said:
"I consider Sonator Hanna the mosc ; j
striking example of self-made manhood. I J
His growth has increased almost In l
geometrical progression. Eaoh year the e J
breadth, depth and strength of the ( 1
man's character has become more np- , j
parent. Endowed with hard senso, good lf t
judgment and great executive ability, ,
his statesmanship, knowledge of and ; ,
grasp of great national affairs came ,
naturally, and finally reached a most ; , i .
striking and exceptional culmination'
A O RE AT AMERICAN. , !
NEW YORK, Feb. 15. Sonator. j.j ;
Kearns said: "There Is not an intorest j;
contemplated by freo government that 11
will not feel the loss of Senator Hanna. ;
Although a man well advanced In j
years, he was at the threshold of his '
public career. The great world of poll-
tics has lost Its most potent advocate: j, ;
the labor world has lost a champion! J
whose Influence was always used to aid I
in a settlement of this great question
and bring about a better understand
ing between capital and labor. Tlio I, I
social world has lost one of Its most 'i
charming hosts and guests, and all of
us who knew him have lost an earnest, ,. t
devoted friend. '
"There Is, perhaps, no man In public i
life today who enjoyed such unlvorsal I 1
confidence as did Senator Hanna. He i(
had lived down the malicious attacks of i
his enemies, and today the strongest ,
partisan of Democracy links his" sorrow ;
with the other side. Senator Hanna
was tho man of the century. The world k'
could ill afford to lose him. One of the 9
greatest Americans Is gone." j!
