San Francisco, May 71. When Mrs.

asked for a cup of coffee and seemed
to be bright and comfortable. Her
condition was so much improved that
her physicians, after the consultation
at 8 o'clock, decided that it would not
be necessary to have another consul
tation until 8 p. m.
When Postmaster General Smith
called on the president he found the
countenance of the chief executive
exceedingly jubilant. The president
gleefully described the change In Mrs.
McKinley's condition as a transforma
tion. There was only a slight tenden
cy to the relapse that had been so
dreaded In the early hours of the
morning. She passed safely through
that crisis and awoke bright and
cheerful. She asked to be allowed to
wash her hands and asked for food.
The president said If she can hold
her own for 24 hours the crisis would
be passed. The physicians expressed
themselves as astonished at her re
markable show of vitality.
When M. H. De Young called Mr.
McKinley was most cheerful, and
stated to Mr. De Young If Mrs. Mc
Kinley continued to improve he would
attend the launching of the Ohio.
The president's return to Washing
ton largely depends upon Mrs. McKin
ley's Improvement. As soon as she Is
able to travel the president will take
her direct to Washington over the
route already announced. The presi
dent is greatly encouraged over Mrs.
McKinley's Improvement. '
The president personallyrequested
each member of his cabiib to keep
all engagements, and not to permit
the illness of his wife to mar the
pleasures of their trip. They have
been loth to do this, however.

silken flag with gold mounted staff
which they intended to present the
president in this city.

this week on account of Mrs. McKin
ley's Illness. A meeting will bo held
Monday afternoon at the Scott resi

church, Hazleton, Pa., who recently
had a conference with' J. Pierpont
Morgan in reference to the threatened

The coroner says the Identification
can hardly be questioned, as papers
found on the body seem to prove It.
The police are working on what may
prove to be a murder.
Kirk Stanley, a massage operator,
in whose rooms the body was found,
is under arrest on suspicion.
Decomposition had advanced so far
when the body was discovered that
a cursory examination was not suffi
cient to reveal the cause of death, aud
an autopsy will be held.
Mrs. Be'rnluS, from whom Stanley
leased four rooms, In one of which the
body was found, says her tenant
claimed to be from San Francisco, and
called himself "Dr. Stanley." He was

whom he introduced as his wife. The
body was discovered by Mrs. Bernlus'
daughter, who went into Stanley's
apartments to remove some bedding
which was hanging out of the window.
The police were Immediately notified,
and a search of the body disclosed a
number of papers. Among them was
a letter from John Mitchell, president
of the United Mine Workers, and ad
dressed to the Rev. Edward S. Phil
lips, Hazleton, Pa. There were also
several telegrams from Mr. Mitchell
addressed to the priest, a half-fare
railway coupon such as issued to cler
gymen, and several receipts made out
in the name of Dr. Phillips.
It was made public for the first time
after the identification of the body
that two confidential alarms had been
sent out by Captain Titus for Father
Phillips, who, according to this infor
mation, had been missing from his
home in Hazleton since May 28. The
first alarm was sent out May 8, and
the second May 16. Detectives from

effects of tho dead man, sent out a
general alarm for the apprehension of

was seen -walking through Fiftieth
street. When he came to the corner
of Ninth avenue, half a block from his
apartments, he stopped. A police
man saw him. Stanley saw the police
man at the same moment and at once
turned and walked rapidly through
Fiftieth street toward Eighth avenue.
Tho policeman ran after him, and,
touching him on the shoulder, said the
captain desired to see him. Stanley
accompanied the policeman, and when
ho reached the station house was
taken at once to Captain Donohoe's
private office. Ho and the captain
wero closeted together for more than
an hour. The captain then took Stan
ley before Sergeant Shlble and told
the sergeant to lock him up.
Tho prisoner seemed to be suffering
from the effects of drink or drugs.
His manner was that of a man who
was badly dazed. He said his name
Is Kirk Stanley and that ho came
to this city about a year and a half
ago. He said thoy palled him Doctor,
but ho had no diploma. He was a
massage operator and Intended to
open an office here.
Captain Donohoo wns reticent In
discussing tho case. All he would say
was that tho prisoner mado conflict
ing statements. Stanloy denied Mow
ing tho man whosb body was found in
his rooms, and said he had never scon
him before, and that he did not know
there was a body there until told by
Stanley was arraigned In police
court and was remanded to the custo

any statement In court.
Stanley Is said to have a wife and
a 12-year-old son living in San Fran

the Palace hotel In that city. After
coming to New York he frequently
received $100 checks from Alameda,

by the application of air at a temper
ature of about 400 degrees.

man who was known as Stanley's
wife. Tbey say this woman left tho
house In Ninth avenue May 9, i nd has
not returned. Father Phillips disap

Hub Little to Say Hut Suggests Strict
Coiiloiiiilty to Constitution.
Manilla, May 17. Agulnaldo, in an
interview, expressed the opinion that
the American government of the Phil
ippines, in order to be unquestionably
satisfactory, should conform strictly
to tho constitution. Asked whether
he considered the Filipinos capable of
exercising all the privileges guaran
teed by a literal interpretation and
application of the constitution, Aguln
aldo declined to express an op.nion.
Considering tho political and commer
cial future ot the archipelago Aguin
aldo was reserved. He said it was
hardly time to discuss it while in what
he considered to be captivity. Tho
military officials say he Is kept guard
ed principally for hl3 own protection.
Agulnaldo says that he knows of no
enemies, needs no protection, and is
willing to go out unattended if per
mitted to do so. He is said to be
pleased with the municipal law con
ferring full local self-government.
Concerning the provincial law, out of
which the governor Is the only elect
ive officer, .Agulnaldo was uncommu
nicative. It is not expected Agulnaldo will
continue to be prominent in Philippine
affairs, though his friends concede his
exceptional abilltes for leadership.
