Una II Had Known for Five Years in the
Capital of HU Country.
Washington, Sept. 17. Escorted by
a splendid military and civic proces
sion tho body of the late President
McKinley was removed from the White
House at 9 a. m. today to the Capitol.
where it was laid in the rotunda of the
beautiful building bo familiar to him
in life. An Impressive funeral service
was said by prominent Methodist
clergymen, and then the doors were

stretching from Buffalo up over the
Allegheneys, down Into the broad vol
ley of the Susquehanna, and on to the
marble lty on the banks of the shin
ing Potomac, the nation's martyred
president yesterday made his last jour
ney to the scat of the government over
which he presided for four and one
half years. The whole country
seemed to have drained its population
at the sides of the track over which
the funeral train passed. The thin
lines through the mountains and the
sparsely settled districts thickened at
the little hamlets, covered acres in
towns suddenly grown to the propor
tions of respectable cities, and were
congested Into vast multitudes in tho
Trappings and Tokens of Wo.
Work was suspended In field and
mine and city. The schools were dis
missed. And everywhere appeared
the trappings and tokens of woe. A
million flags at half-mast dotted hill
side and valley, and formed a thick-
set of color over the cities. And from
almost every banner streamed a bit
of crepe. The stations were heavy
with the black symbols of mourning.
At nil the larger towns and cities, af
ter the train got into Pennsylvania
militiamen drawn up at present arms
kept back the enormous crowds.
The silence with which the count
less thousands viewed the remains of
their hero aud martyr was oppressive
and profound. Only the rumbling of
the train wheels, the sobs from men
nnd women with tear-stained faces,
mid the doleful tolling of the church
hells broke on the ear. At several
places WUlhimsnort. Hairisburg and
Baltimore the chimes played Cardi

most remarkable demonstration ofuni

was borne to his grave. .
'tAIX ARRIVES AT THE CAPITAL.
W UoiT anil Her Nenrest Friends Go Imme
diately to the White House.
Washington. Sept. 17. The remains
of President McKinley last night lay
In the East room of the White House,
where for mere than four years he bad
made his home as the chief magistrate
of the great American republic. I'p
flairs his widow mourned for her dead
in the family apartments that brought
back but the saddest of memories. It
was with simple ceremony and a si
lence that fitted perfectly the sadness
of the occasion that the IhmI.v of the
late president was borne tip Pennsyl
vania avenue to the White House and
laid iijkoii the bier In the great East
rtoin, where ho had stood so often in
the pride of his manhood to receive the
greetings of the common people he
loved better than himself.
The evening was cloHdy. and with
the -Ioe of the day began the dull,
depressing boom of a great gun at In
tervals of five minutes. It was the
signal which gave notice of the ap
proach of the funeral train. At the
Pennsylvania railroad station men in
bright uniforms gathered, a mixture
of soldiers and sailors. Presently In
dead silence two troops of cavalry from
Port Myer swung from Pennsylvania
avenue into Sixth street. Then camp
Sccretaryies Hay and Gage and Acting
Secretary Sanger and Commissioner
Macl-'arlaiid and a few subordinates
privileged to enter the space within
the station where the train was to stop.
At 8:38 the headlight of the locomo
tive flashed along the rails, and the
cars swept quietly to a stop at the
gates. The way was cleared, and
down the pathway strode a body of
sturdy sa Idler" and sailors chosen as
the body 1earers and guard. They
were met at the entrance of the ol
servation car, where the remains lay
by an officer, and admitted at once.
Meanwhile farther down' the station
the party on the funeral train were
alighting. Secretaries liny and Gage
had pressed forward and entered the
car where the mourners sat and as
Fisted them to descend. Mrs. McKin
ley was aided by Abner McKinley and
Dr. Ilixey and was speedily placed In
a carriage which drove off at once to
the White House without awaiting the
proceysion. Close behind came the
members of the family of the late
president, who likewise were driven
away to the executive mansion. Pres
ident Roosevelt came next. The pres
ident walked firmly erect, looking to
neither side, hla face set and sorrow
fr.l. Close behind him pressed the
members of the cabinet. Senator
flanna nnd Senator Fairbanks fol
lowed. The former walked without a
sign of weakness and as though he
had nerved himself to the occasion.

Chicago, Sept. 17. With the finding

Sunday of the body of M. tl. Van der
Burg, a wealthy resident of the Neth
erlands, an associate of American capi
talists, and a guest at the Auditorium
Annex, the mysterious death of Stella
Cook last Tuesday night was cleared.
Miss Cook was not murdered, accord
ing to the present belief of the police,
but lost her life with Van der Burg
by the overturning of a boat in which
they were rowing. The discovery of
the" Hollander's body not only cleared
up the "murder mystery." but dis
pelled the cloud of snpsplcion that has
settled about Harry Thurston, cook on
the steamer City of Traverse, and com
panion of the dead girl.
Unless unexpected evidence develops
at the coroner's inquest Thurston, who
is held at Mackinac Island on a war
rant c harging him with having guilty
knowledge of the girl's disappearance,
will be set free. Van der Burg's body
has been identified positively by Frank
Smith, the employe of Frank Donobuc.

its most honored fathers in God. Be

told the truth he was called "Straight

he was a man of splendid ability, elo

death occurred at G a. m. yesterday, of
angina pectoris, of which he had been
ill a week. He was 7S years old and
born In New York.
The news of his death was a shock
to the people of Minnesota, as It will
be a sorrow to thousands of others. Ho
was a recognized authority on all
phases of the Indian question, nis
courageous struggle against the iniquit
ous system carried on by the Indian
agents of the government when he

Case That Instabilities That "Winking" Is
Not an Indictable Offense.
Kokomo, Ind.. Sept. 17. At an old
settlers' picnic near Goldsmith, Her
man Salter had a wagon load of mys
terious looking half-pint bottles in an
adjoining grove. He carried samples
among, the crowd, saying with a wink
that he had a line article of "tea."
The bottle sold like hot cakes and his
load was soon disposed of. some of the
thirsty ones buying three and four bot
tles. When the purchasers went to se
cluded spots to sample the liquor they
were disgusted by the discovery that It
was really tea. aud not whisky, as they
supposed. The vender was arrested
for obtaiuiug money under false pre
tenses, but was acquitted, the local
magistrate holding that the goods were
true to name, as represented: that the
ouly deception was in the wink, and
that winking was not an Indictable
offense. Salter made a "ckfin up" of
$10O in the transaction.
