The re mains are being prepared for burial. Thus far only a few of the most inti mate friends of the Hanna family have been permitted to enter the death chamber to view the body. In appearance the features of the dead statesman are very lifelike. They in dicate little emaciation and on account of the oxygen used during the last days of the senator's sickness there is an absence of the ashen pallor often peculiar to the dead. The death of Senator Hanna has brought out expressions of regret from men of all parties and of every walk of life. An atmosphere of profound sorrow is noticeable in congressional circles and both houses paid their re spects to the dead senator by adopt ing resolutions, naming committees to attend the funeral and adjourning without the transaction of further business.

The casket bearers will be officers detailed from the capi tol force. Journey to Cleveland. The body will be conveyed at 5 o'clock to the Pennsylvania station. At 6 o'clock a special train bearing the body and the members of the fam ily and their invited friends will leave for Cleveland.

President Roosevelt entertained a cordial regard for Senator Hanna and the senator cordially reciprocated that feeling Their personal regard was based on the firmest respect. While they differed at times, as strong men may differ, their personal relations never were endangered by the differ ences. Indeed, so high was the re gard in which the president held Mr. Hanna's Ability as a Political Manager and as a potent force in national af fairs, that a few months ago he re quested him urgently in the event of his nomination for the presidency to assume again the cares and responsi bilities of directing the national cam paign. While it was feared Mr. Han na's ill health might induce him to de cline again to accept the chairman ship of the Republican national com mittee he had not returned, at the time he was stricken by his fatal sickness, a final answer to the presi dent's request. Representative W. A. Smith of Mich igan says Senator Hanna had a premo nition some time ago that he would not live until summer. As Speaker Cannon left the presi dent's office he did not attempt to dis guise the sorrow he felt at the death Of Senator Hanna. At the meeting of the cabinet the death of the Ohio senator was lament ed deeply. All the members enter tained for him the profoundest regard end respect. The opportunity af forded by the meeting was embraced by all present to pay personal tributes to their dead friend. Little business vas transacted. The members decid ed to assemble at the White House to accompany the president to the capi tol to attend the senate funeral serv ices. FUNERAL CLEVELAND. Will Be a Magnificent Display of Af fection.
