President McKinley died nt 2:13

breath passed calmly and almost im
perceptibly. He had been unconscious
for several hours before the end and
his death was free from pain. The

Frerte ! Pramotic
The scene about the house and in the
street, which had been storm swept, was
dramatic in its action and setting and
the spirit of tho tragedy was on those
who looked upon it. A messenger who
darted into the rain and was whisked
away in an electric cab gave the outside
watchers the first intimation of the ill
news from within. At the same moment
new lights burned within the windows of
the Milhuru residence. Soon the word
was passed out that the President had
partially collapsed and was critically ill.
It was a confirmation that was hardly
needed, for the fact had la-en established
by action that needed no words.
The newspaper correspondents, who
had already sent warning of a serious
change in the President's condition, rush
ed to the improvised telegraph offices
with the first bulletins.
As the telegraph instruments rattred
away with their forlorn story early in the
morning the hastily aroused physicians
began arriving. An automobile racing
at top speed brought Dr. Mynter first.

arrived within a few moments. Neither
knew the true state of the President at
at that moment and in silent fear they
quickly entered the house. Another hur
rying visitor was Dr. Wasdin, whose ar
rival completed the circle of physicians
and another was Mrs. McWilliams, the
friend of Mrs. McKinley.
The physicians, after their consultation
an the examination of the patient, could
offer little encqurageinent. He was very
weak and his heart was so feeble that
they feared lest his life might go out at

Every household in Washington is in
mourning. From the pinnacle of hope
buoyed by the cheering tidings brought
from Ruffalo by returning cni-os the
people, within twenty-four hours, were
cast into the depths of grief. The sorrow
is complete. Large crowds assembled
about the bulletin boards early Friday
evening, eagerly awaiting the latest
news, hoping against hope that some
thing would happen to spare the Presi
dent. According to a correspondent the old
est citizens cannot remember when a ca
lamity lias brought to the national capi
tal such profound grief. The excitement
was more intense when Lincoln sue- j
sumbed to the ballets of the assassin.
Rooth. but iiis death did not seem to so '
atllict the people. Garfield was generally
idmired, and the calamity that overtook
him awakened the sjmpathy of the peo
ple, but he was not mourned as is Mo .
Kinley. Tender inquiries were on ev
eryone's, lips concerning Mrs. McKinley.
and the impression prevails tlt.it "die will
not long survive her husband.
In many of the local churches Friday
men and women assembled for quiet
prayer that the life of the President
might be spared.
The largest of these .
meetings was held at the Metropolitan
Methodist Church, where the President
and Mrs. McKinley worshipped.

QUESTION OK SOLID FOOD.
Rcplyins to Criticism, Physicians Say
No Mistake Was Made.
Severe adverse criticism ha3 been ad
vanced regarding the administration of
solid food to President McKinley by the
doctors before the relapse came. The
President's relapse is admittedly the re
sult of the failure of his digestive organs
to assimilate the solid food which he ate
Thursday. Important bodily functions
When the bulletin was, issued which
said that the stomach had refused to as

for the worst news, which came. 'Che
food had generated A gas and the pres

heart. This was the startling message
which was given to Ihe world.

Dr. Herman Mynter said: "At the time
