Ilton Fish, connected himself with the
Gould llne3 of the southwest, and re
cently Mr. Fish came out Into this

general trade conditions with rela

Gould properties. He was interview
ed at Kansas City and was gone from
New York long enough to give rise
to a good deal if Inquiry as to what
he was doing. Now Mr. Fish has re
turned to New York and has stated
some things about the great south

In a letter on Mr. Fish's Journey
Holland recalls that William II. Sew
ard a decade before the civil war pre
dicted a great interior empire, parti
cularly in the northwest, with its
capital or metropolis at St. Paul or
thereabouts. That section the pur
chaser of Alaska believed would in
the course of years become the rich
est region on the continent and with
Its wealth and Imperial population
would largely dominate. This view of
the northwest first expressed by Sew
ard has been the key of the life work
of J. J. Hill, the great railroad mag
nate of St Paul. Mr. Hill has had

its headquarters, extending not to
Alaska only and the wheat, timber
and fruit and fish regions of Wash-

extending to Japan, China and the
On the other hand, Holland recalls
that when Hamilton Fish was Grant's
secretary of state, affairs which
brought his attention to the south
west convinced him that the center
of wealth and power on this contin
ent was destined to fall in this local
Ity, and during the late years of his
life he was in the habit of expatiat-
Jag on that topic among his friends
According to Holland, this opinion of
Hamilton Fish has descended to his
on. Stuyvesant Fish, and the pres
ent Mr. Fish tell3 hi3 friends in New
York that the great southwest has
a future that cannot be calculated at
this time, but such as warrants the de
velopment of transportation facilities
on the largest possible scale if it is
expected to handle all that this re

one garden spot of unlimited produc

establishment of factories on such a
scale that they find a distant market
all ready for their productions.
Whether the Seward and Hill or
the Fish and Harriman theory is cor
rect, nobody can dispute the capabili
ty of the great southwest of accom
modating all the people that railroads
can be built to bring here for its de
velopment. Our gas and oil fields are
the most extensive on the continent
and will last two generations. Our
beet sugar alone is capable of unlim

(Bv Major General Fred. D. Grant.)
The idea of thi3 beautiful custom
was first suggested and made a great
national holiday by General John A.
Logan. He was a thoughtful man,
swayed by sentiment cf the highest
order, and a close student of the class
ics. He read much and frequently re
ferred -to historic episodes In hi
By nature General Logan was in
clined to be heroic, and so after the
war, after reading much about the
beautiful customs of the ancient
Greeks in honoring their dead heroes
with ceremonies and flowers at an
nual festivals, it came to him In a
moment of inspiration that it would
be a patriotic and popular thing to
likewise honor the dead soldiers of
our own country in a cimilar way. He
held that to decorate the soldiers'
graves once a year in the month of
May with its flowers and blooming
splendor would awaken new senti
ments of loyalty and regard for the
government among the people.
It was a fact, as he well knew, that
nearly every household had lost one
or more members or relatives or deai
friends. General Logan's Inspiration
awoke a response in every heart and
hi3 movement was soon organized and
made of national importance. Grand
Army posts were established In every
section of the country. All agreed
that decorating the graves of soldiers
with flowers on the day appointed
would give the nation new life and be
welcomed by all the 3ople.
But this is not ah. The religious
sentiment at the bottom of the Idea
of honoring the dead soldiers and
perpetuating the memory of their he
roic deeds made the day something
higher and nobler than anything
in the days of the Greeks. Thus
It came about that Memorial day be
came the greatest of all our Ameri
can holidays. It was a day for the
bereaved to commune at the tombs ot
their honored dead.
For many years, as we all know,
the custom was an event the most
beautiful, pathetic and sacred of our
holidays but later on, as the ranks
of the survivors grew thinner and the
families who had contributed so many
lives to the war passed away, the day
became more like other holidays a
day more noted for military parade,
a day for games and picnics and hav
ing a good time generally, until now
the general public are coming to look
on Memorial day as an ordinary na
tional holiday, like Washington's
birthday or the Fourth of July.
Had it not been for the deep reli
gious sentiment, with prayers and
church services held in honor of the
soldiers. Memorial day would from
the beginnig in ail probability have
been attended with the noise and dis
play of the Fourth of July. Fortu
nately this religious sentiment h-s
made the people more thoughtful,
and instead of noise and gun firing we
have gone in for more quiet recrea
tion country picnics making the
day more like a festival than a day
of mere noise and parade.
I think It is a beautiful Idea, this
decorating the graves of those who
sacrificed their lives in the tremen
dous days of the war and purely out
of patriotic devotion, and it is a pity
Indeed that public sentiment Is grad
ually changing and we are forgetting
the solemn lessons taught by the war
and of the sacred meaning of honor
ing the dead drifting away and
making the sacred festival more ana
more a common holiday of races,
noisy picnics and having a good time
generally, with no particular senti
ment animating the thousands who
should take a higher view of Me

Join him in death, has been answered.
She died at 1:05 o'clock this after
noon. For many years Mrs. McKinley had
been an invalid. She rallied to a cer
tain extent from the shock or her
husband's tragic death; but it left it3
mark and when it was known that
she had suffered a stroke of paralysis
the doctors had little hope that she
The end came peacefully almost
Imperceptibly, airs. ilcKinley never
knew of the efforts made to prolong
her life, or the hope against hope of
her sister and other relatives and
friends for her recovery.
At the ilcKinley home when death
came there were present Secretary
Cortelyou, Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Bar
ber, Mrs. Sarah Duncan, ilrs. Luther
Day, Justice and Mrs. William R. Day
Dr. Poramann and Dr. RLxey.
Her Great Vitality.
"Mrs. McKinley lived hours longer
than we expected," said the secretary.
"She just drew one long breath while
asleep and all was over." It was by
Secretary Cortelyou that the an
nouncement of the death was given to
the public. At the moment of an
nouncement, William McKinley Post
and George D. Harter Post, G. A. R.,
were forming In line and to the strains
of "The March Religioso," -went to the
First Methodist Episcopal church to
listen to the annual memorial address
which was given by Dr. Buxton, Mrs.
McKlnley's pastor. The death was an
nounced from the pulpit as they
In the room where Mrs. McKinley
died was a splendid bust of the late
president, while at an angleUhere was
a large oil painting of McKinley. To
the right and left of this picture hung
early pictures of the late president.
One was taken when he was a ma
jor. A large group of carnations were
beside Mrs. McKinleys bed. There
was to be seen also the large Invalid
chair in which she habitually sat. Ev
erything about the house seemed to
be just as the president had left them,
and just as the widow always de
sired. The solemnity of the death hour
was marred by a loudly playing band
accompanying special cars of base
ball fans to the Sunday afternoon
game, the McKinley home being close
to the car tracks.
The funeral arrangements so far as
made are that Dr. Buxton will have
charge of the services, which are to
be simple. They will be at the Mc
Kinley home at 2 o'clock Wednes
The body of Mrs. McKinley will be
placed in the vault in West Lawn
cemetery which holds also the body of
her husband and her two babies, un
til the completion of the national
mausoleum on Monument hill, when
both caskets and those of the babies
will be transferred to that tomb.
An Invalid 3Iany Years.
Mrs. McKinley's life of almost 60
years had been made familiar to the
nation by the fact that more than half
of it was a period of Invalidism.
Through all this, however, she show
ed a firm and unfwavering belief in thV
career of her husband and by her
cheering words, in spite of personal
afflictions, encouraged him when there
was darkness at hand.
She believed that his star of destiny
would never set until he had become
president of this land, and for more
than a quarter of a century cherished
that belief until her hopes were real
ized. After President McKinley's death
she expressed a desire to join him, and
prayed day by day that she might
die. Later, however, she frequently
told friends she desired to live until
the completion of the McKinley mauso
leum, which is the gift of the nation,
and which is to be dedicated on Monu
ment hill September 30.
Mrs. McKinley is known to those in
her home city as the "lady of sor
row." Her love for her husband and
his great love for her have left a very
tender and sympathetic memory of
all the people of the place.
Fond of the Drama.
Mrs. McKinley was fond of the
drama. She and her husband num
bered as one of their most intimate
friends the late Joseph Jefferson, who
was frequently a guest of the
Kinleys. Among her diversions were
the crocheting of slippers, which she
bestowed as keepsakes to friends,
handed to the needy or gave to
bazaars. More than 3,500 pairs of
slippers were knitted by her and giv
en away. Mrs. McKinley was fond
of flowers, the rose being her favor
ite for many years. In recent years
the president's carnation shared a
place in her admiration.
Bereft of children at an early stae
of married life, she showed her In
tense affection for children until tho
end of her life. It was a common
thing for her to stop her carriage
when driving along the street and call
to her some prattling child and kiss it
or ask to embrace an attractive baby.
The McKinley estate, which was
left by the president, was appraised at
21o,000 when the inventory was
made. It has increased In valu since
that time. By the terms of the will
of Mr. MciKnley the estate at the
death of Mrs. McKinley was to be
divided equally among his brother,
Abner McKinley, now deceased, and
sisters. Mrs. Duncan and Miss Helen
McKinley of Cleveland.
