flag was topped with a long, black
Following the mounted troops came the
hearse bearing its flag-covered burden.
This was the sight that sent a hush along
the dense, long lines of humanity
stretching for a mile away to the court
house. As the casket passed, every head
was bowed and every face evidenced the
great personal grief which had come upon,
the community.
Immediately following the hearse came
the carriage of President Roosevelt, who
rode with his brother-in-law. Captain
Cowles of the navy, the latter in full uni
form, and Secretary Oage. The carriages
of the other members of the cabinet and
those who had been near to the late
president in public life, were lined out for
half a mile. Back of them marched tho
national guard of Ohio, regiment after
regiment, in platoon front formation and
filling the broad thoroughfare from side
to side. As the head of the procession
reached the great square of the city, the
military ranks swung about, forming solid
fronts facing the approaching hearse.
At the Cunrthome.
As it was driven to the curb, the bear
ers stepped from their places alongside
and again took up their burden. Before
the eyes of the vast concourse filling the
square, the casket was tenderly raised
and borne up the wide stone steps lead
ing to the entrance of the courthouse.
rhe strains of "Nearer, My God, to Thee"
were still sounding as the flag-draped
coffin disappeared within the building.
President Roosevelt alighted from his
carriage and took the arm of Secretary
Gage. The other cabinet officers joined
them at the curb and then, two by two,
wiih uncovered heads, they moved in
solemn procession up the steps into the
building. Mayor Diehl of Buffalo and the
nmyors of many cities and President Mc-
Farland of the commissioners of the Dis
trict of Columbia followed, while after
them came Senators Hanna, Fairbanks, 1
Burrows, Kean and the other public men
who were on the train,
In striking contrast with the somber
gaib of the civilian mourners were the
brilliant uniforms of the officers high in
the military and naval service, who fol
lowed ihem into the courthouse. Major
General Brooke, in the full uniform of his
hie.:, rank, marched at the head of the
representatives of the army, which in- i
cluied Major Generals Otis and MacAr- I
thur. Among the conspicuous figures of |
the naval service were Rear Admirals I
Ciowninshield. O'Neil and K«nny and j
Brigadier General Hay wood, commander
of ire Marine corps. The generals wore
cht-p.aux with flowing black plumes while
tr . c cf the admiral were distinguished
by the wealth of heavy gold braid.
\>'ith the notes of "Nearer, My God, to
Thee," following them faintly through the
doio.vay, the body of bearers bore the cof
fin into the rotunda of the courthouse a
little before 1 o'clock.
The hall w>ere the body will lie in state
in Canton had been handsomely decorated
lor the occasion. The walls and ceilings
were hung with dead black, the crape be
ing gathered into folds at each corner of
tt • rotunda. A single chandelier gave j
li; additional to the dim rays that |
pa.-.-cd through the doorway. Beneath the I
cluster of electric lights stood the cata
falque upon which the casket was to rest.
Moving sowly, with short stops, the
coffin was borne to Its support. The bear
ers swu&g slowly around so that the head
lay to the east. The silk banner that was
flung over the casket was drawn back, ;
the wreaths which rested upon its head
•were removed and the coffin lid was taken
Word was finally passed to President
Roosevelt and, followed by his cabinet, he
stepped briskly into the hall. He glanced
down as he reached the casket, halted for
the space of a breath and went on. The
members followed him one by one. Twen
ty feet beyond the casket the hall
branches to the right and left, and as th*>
president reached the corner he halted,
uncertain which way to turn. An usher at
once directed him toward the east
entrance and he passed through and out
to his carriage, which bore him at once
to the residence of Mrs. Elizabeth Har- j
ter, where he will remain during his stay i
in Canton. The cabine officials, most of |
•whom will also remain at Mrs. Harter'a
home, were immediately driven away.
After the president had gone, the offi
cers of the army and navy, headed by
Genral Miles, General Otis and General
Brooks walked together throughout and i
pased to their carriage.
Objection was made by some of the i
•rmy officers to the bright light shed by j
the electric lights full on the face of j
the president and a desire was expressed !
that the light should be dimmed. The
chandelier was too high to reach and a
delay of ten minutes enscued, while a hunt j
was made for a chair. One was finally :
discovered and the light at the base of!
the chandelier was extinguished and other i
electric light globes on the chandelier
turned off.

Watch the Funeral Train.
Pittsburg, Sept. 18, (on Board Funeral
Train). —The train ran more slowly after
leaving Harrisburg shortly after midnight
and daylight was dawning as it arrived at
Altcona at the foot of the eastern slope
of the Alleghenies. But through the
semi-darkness the forms of many people
could be seen strung along the track.
Without the depot a vast throng number
ing 3,000 or 4.000 people surged up to the
train. Many had been there all night
and others had waited for hours, as the
train was originally scheduled to reach
that point at 3:20 a. m. Extra engines
were coupled on here and the train was
pulled laboriously up the mountains. The
morning was raw, foggy and cheerless.
Mountaineers with axes on their should
ers came down from the steep slopes to
pay their homage witn uncovered heads.
Passing the summit at Cresson, the de
scent began. Half the population of
Johnstown, the first of the great steel
manufacturing center through which the
train was now to pass on its way to the
martyred president's home, was at the
track and a company of local militia
stood drawn up at attention. Men, women
and children all were there. Miners with
lamps on their caps had rushed forth from
the tunnels at the train's approach and
the steel mills along the Connemaugh
river were emptied.
He Wai Their Protector.
These were men who felt that their
prosperity was due to the eystem for
■which the dead statesman stood and their
loss seemed of a personal character. Four
women with uplifted hands were noticed
on their knees and handkerchiefs were
at the lips of others; and from the smoke
covered city came the sound of the church
Dells clanging out the universal sorrow.
The train slowed down that the people
might better see the Impressive spectacle.
At the rear of the train, within the ob
servation car, was the elevated, flag-cov
ered casket with its burden of flowers and
the two armed sentries on duty at the
head and foot «nd outside on the platform,
a soldier with his bayoneted gun and a
Bailor with drawn cutlass, both at salute.
So rigid they stood that they might have
been carved out of stone. A little furth

Boys Would Kill Czolgosz
Special to The Journal.
Pine Island, Minn., Sept. 18.—Pine Island's runaway boys, Glen and Howard
Miller, Guy Harmer and Morris Graham, will be returned to their homes to-day.
They were arrested at Oregon, Wls., south of Madison, and taken to the capital city
to await orders from that place.
The boys left home on a notoriety and experience-seeking tour on Sunday after
noon. They are said to have been armed with a dirk and a 45-caliber revolver, and
their mission was either to hold up and re-b a train or to proceed to Buffalo, there
to seek Leon Czolgosz and avenge the president's death. As they had made more
than half the distance to Chicago, It is believed here that they contemplated going
on to Buffalo to meet the president's assassin.
The boys are the sons of well-to-do, respectable parents and their resolve to
avenge the president was but the sequel of the intense interest thy have felt in the
national tragedy. They loved the president and abhorred his assassin, and felt im
pelled to remove the latter. No one knew when they left home, but they were soon
missed and search was kept up unutil they were found.
The father of the Miller brothers has a grocery store here and young Harmer's
sire is a hardware merchant. Young Graham is the son of a laborer who stands well
In the community. The boys are assured of the proverbial warm welcome—warmer.
in fact, than they may desire.
1 changed and the railroad men were out in
force. At Wilmerding the employes of the
: Westlnghouse Air Brake company were at
the track, and at East Pittsburg, where
is located one of the largest electrical
plants in the world, were several thou
sand people.
The train had now practically entered
the suburbs of Pittsburg,that city of brawn
and muscle which has Just passed through
the convulsion of a great strike, and the
Industrial workers were strung along the
track in solid lines.
At Bessemer the huge stacks of the
Carnegie steel plant were pouring forth
dense volumes of smoke and flame, and
under this black canopy the toilers gath
ered in dense throngs, standing mutely
with uncovered heads. Just beyond, the
I great mills of Braddock gave forth an
other multitude of grimy workmen, and
to the left, across the river, where is lo
cated that other great hive of industry.
Homestead, the wharves were lined with
men and women.
In Pittsburgh.
Entering Pittsburg, a wonderfully Im
pressive sight was presepted. Along both
sides of the track for miles were solid
j walls of humanity. In some places the
I people stood twenty deep, while the em-
I bankments were black with them. On the
| top of every freight car was a human
| hedge. The overhanging bridges bent be
! neath their burden.
The roofs of houses were lined. All
stood with uncovered heads while the
bells of all the churches were tolling.
It was just one minute before 9 o'clock
when the first section of the train ar
rived in sight of the Union station. This
train carried President Theodore Roose
velt, the members of the cabinet and
other government officials. Ten minutes
ahead of it a pilot engine and a baggage
car were sent out, over the Port Wayne
road. The first section came through the
station at the rate of about twenty-five
miles an hour. None of those who were
on the train were visible, and most of
the blinds were drawn.
The second 3ectlon, or funeral train,
was late, and did not reach the station
until 9:35. When it came into view many
of the watchers placed coins on the rails
to have the train run over them, and
there were hundreds of these souvenirs.
As the train passed the Fourteenth and
Eighteenth regiments of the National
Guard presented arms and the great mul
titude was silent and stood with uncov
ered heads. The same scenes were re
peated as the train passed through Alle
gheny. It is estimated that 50,000 peo
ple were at the Union station and 25,000
at the Allegheny depot, while the crowd
that viewed the funeral train from its
entrance ibto Pittsburg until it crossed
the city line in Allegheny was not less
than 250,000.
Sliciih of Deep Feeling.
On the face of everyone there wore signs
of the deepest feeling and mourning.
There were many children in this vast
assembly, and they seemed to realize with
their elders the sorrow the nation was
experiencing, and on their young faces,
too, was expressed the mourning as for
one whom they had loved and lost.
It had been reported last night that the
train would reach Pittsburg at 7 o'clock,
and thousands of their people had been
standing in the raw, foggy atmosphere
from 6 o'clock.
During the passage of the train through
the two cities a section of Battery B fired
a salute from Mount Washington and
the city and church bells tolled.
Thronged With. Humanity.
New Brighton, Pa., Sept. 18.—The first
| section which preceded the train with the
: catafalque car attached did not stop in
I Pittsburg, but the Matter halted a moment
i to permit Governor Nash of Ohio, with
his staff, and General Dick, commander
of the Ohio national guard, to board the
train. The scene from the car windows
became even more impressive as the
train proceeded. The river was covered
j with dredges, each thronged with human
! lty, and the wharves along either shore
j could not be seen for the people struggling
i for foothold upon them. The iron girders
! of the bridge were packed with men and
I boys. The public parkway beyond was?
; alive with people. Every window was
j filled with faces. The houses were
! swathed in black. Every breast wore some
token of mourning and every face was
solemn with a tense look as eyes strained
eagerly, scanning each car for a glimpse
of the coffin in which the dead lay.
| Hanging from a tall pane in one of the
factory inclosures was an effigy of the as
sassin, Czolgosz. clothed In black and
j wearing on his breast a dark lettered card
of angry imprecation. In the body were
a dozen knives.
I Leaving Allegheny, the funeral train
1 sped through the little town of Sewickley.
an outskirt of the great manufacturing
region, with Beaver, the home of Senator
I Quay, nestled across the river. Here the
i populace came to the train en masse.
From this point through to Beaver Falls
the trained rushed through thriving little
manufacturing towns—Rochester, New
j Brighton and Kenwood. At Rochester a
big American flag streamed from a tele
graph pole, its edges trimmed with crape,
and the church bells could be heard toll
ing dismally. Beaver Falls was reached
at 9:16.
Climax of »nnrning Demonstration.
Canton, Sept. 18.—The first section of
the funeral train reached Canton at 11:20.
The climax of a great demonstration of
sorrow that had been observed all the
way from Pittsburg began at Alliance,
eighteen miles from Canton. There the
half-masted flags were bordered heavily
with black and it seemed as if every man,
woman and child were at the station. A
big white streamer, ten feet wide, was
across the main street, lettered heavily
In black, "We Mourn Our Nation's Dead."
The church bells were tolling dolefully.
.Then came the last half hour's run Into
Canton, where the body was to be re
ceived into the arms of Its own people.
Mile by mile the approach was marked
by growing evidences of deep personal
affliction. Flags that had often waved
McKinley welcome were now lowered In
sorrow. Farmers and country folk gen
erally seemed to have suspended work
altogether; the schools were dismissed
and the entire population were ranged
along the track in sorrowful silence. The
straining faces showed that the people
took this mournful home-coming as a per
sonal bereavement which had entered Into
each home, and it was as though fathers
and mothers and sisters were watching
for a glimpse of the casket that held their
own beloved one.
At Maximo, the country stores were
heavily draped and the townspeople
packed the little station. Now the train
was at Lewisville, only six miles from
Canton, and soon the shops of the dead
president's much-loved city were seen
dotting the way. For the first time the
sun, which had been behind heavy black
clouds, threw its first rays on the gath
ered throngs and lighted up the somber
emblems of grief. The entry into Canton
was made In the bright sunshine.
Streets of the Late President's. Home
. r ,. ; Town Thronged.
Canton, Ohio, Sept. -Although the
greater ;• portion, i<& _■>: the }. multitude •which
'Will attend the funeral services of Presi
dent McKinley will not reach here before
to-morrow, a large number arrived this
morning and from now until tornlgbt it is
expected that every hour will bring at
least one special train. On Thursday they
will come in four-fold numbers.
The trains this morning brought largely
organized bodies which are to participate
in the march to-morrow, and during the
morning the streets were filled with
marching bodies of Knights Templars and
Knights of Pythias, while numbers of
grizzled veterans bearing the badge which
marks a member of Major McKinley's old
regiment—the Twenty-third Ohio—el
bowed their way through the crowds that
packed the sidewalk.
Fully two hours before the time sched
uled for the arrival of the train the crowd
began to gather at the Tenth street depot
'of the Pennsylvania road. A large force
of deputy marshals was sworn In last
night to assist Canton police and although
the people had no intention of creating
trouble, the very size of the crowd made
Its control a matter of some difficulty for
the amateur guardians of the place. Time
and time again the crowd by sheer weight
of numbers pressed beyond the limit set
for them.
It was not until the militia and Troop
A of Cleveland came that the crowd was
held back, and even then it was restrained
entirely by the fact that it was physically
impossible for a large detachment of cav
alry and a larger crowd of civilians to get
into a space too small for either alone.
The crowd was finally compelled to spread
backward and line itself along the route
marked out for the march from the depot
to the courthouse.
It was 10 o'clock when the first of the
carriages provided for the guests by the
executive committee arrived at the depot.
Each carriage had been carefully num
bered and set apart for certain guests,
and as they arrived individually at the
depot, there was considerable trouble be
fore the ywere arranged in the order
originally designed for their distinguished
A number of the executive committee
had been sent on east of Canton to board
the funeral train and to advise each mem
ber of the funeral party of the place of
residence selected for him in Canton and
to give him his carriage number.
At 9:30 a. m. word was received from
the funeral train that it was thirty min
utes later In leaving Pittsburg than was
expected. The usual running time for
the fast trains on the Pennsylvania be
tween Pittsiburg and Canton is two hours
and fifty-eight minutes, and as it was not
likely that the funeral train would exceed
this schedule because of Mrs. McKinley's
known aversion to fast running, it was
practically certain that the train would
not arrive in Canton before 11:30.
. Notwithstanding this fact, the members
of the executive and reception commit
tees, the escort and the funeral car were
all at the depot in readiness at the time
originally set. It was the intention of the
committees that there should be no lack
of attention on their part and no allow
ance whatever was made for the known
lateness of the train.
When the streets had been finally
cleared of pedestrians and the depot plat
form left free for the members of the com
mittees and the pall-bearers, there was
nothing to do but to wait.
The honorary pall-bearers, all clad In
long frock coats of black, wearing silk
hats, and on the left arm a long streamer
of crape, ocupied the center of the plat
form, while back of them stood the com
mitteemen and a number of the more in
timate friends of President McKinley.
Standing behind the depot platform,
drawn by four beautiful black horses,
stood the hearse. It is a richly carved
and decorated funeral car. There were no
trappings, no special adornment.
Everything about was simple but hand
some and in excellent taste. Large nets,
from which were pendant heavy black tas
sels, covered each horse and a groom stood
at the head of each animal.
The horses had been especially selected
for theii beauty, several cities in the
neighborhood of Cantcn having offered
teams from which the committee had made
its final selection.
For forty minutes before the arrival of
the train mounted orderlies rode up and
down the streets, leading their assistance
in keeping the crowd back to its limit and
arranging the details of the column which
was to escort the body to the courthouse.
Citizens of Canton worked all night long
draping their city with black. Arches were
erected at the courthouse and in various
other places where the funeral cortege
will pass in its movements to-day and to

Felt at the Capital City.
Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 18.—Thursday will
be a day of sorrow in Columbus, and, in
fact, all over Ohio. The buildings, both
public and private, are draped in black.
Business houses will be closed, the state
capitol will be locked for the first time
in years, schools will be dismissed, theat
rical performances abandoned and public
exercise* will be held in all the churches
in memory of President McKinley. For
five minutes during the funeral at Canton
every trolley car in Columbus and all
lines entering the city will be stopped,
power being cut off entirely.
The 25,000 coal miners in the state will
abandon all work in respect to the de
ceased president. The grief of Columbus
is great, as the president spent two terms
in the governor's office, and the personal
acquaintance of the masses with him made
his death especially felt. ; "

Washington, Sept. 18.—President Roose

meeting held in Washington. At this
meeting the president asked the members
of the cabinet to retain their * respective
portfolios throughout his term, and an
nounced that his administration would
follow the policy outlined by President
McKinley in his Buffalo speech.
The president addressed his advisers
collectively, as he had previously done in
dividually, requesting them all to retain
their respective positions in his cabinet.
Mr. Roosevelt expressed the hope and ex
pectation that every member .would serve
throughout his term, for, he said, he ten
derd the appointments as if he had just
been elected to the presidency and was
forming an original cabinet. The presi
dent said, however, that there was one
difference between the present tender and
that of an original - offer, gamely, under
the present circumstances they were not
at liberty to decline. Upon being asked
by a member if resignations should ; be
formally presented in the usual manner,
the president answered that his action at
this meeting had precluded the necessity
of presenting resignations. -■ --
The discussion .turned upon the policy
of the administration, and Mr. Roosevelt
announced that he regarded the, speech of
the late president at the Buffalo Pan-
American exposition, the day previous to
i the tragic shooting, as outlining the poli

It cannot be learned at this time whether

Washington, Sept. 18. — Much interest

"I meant what I said when taking the

It was while in discussing this phase
of the situation that he made a declaration
concerning 1904. He said:

Fiendish Crimes of a Half Breed in
A Girl of Sixteen Assaulted and Her
Throat Cat—Skulls of the
Others Crushed.
Grantsburg, Wis., Sept. 18. — Per
sons from the north part of th«
county have arrived with the information
that three children of the family of Mr.
Bawsley, living at Langs dam on Coon
creek, were brutally murdered and burned
to death. There were three children, a
girl of 16, a boy of 8, and another child
4 years old.
Louis Murgaw, a halfbreed, has been ia
love with the oldest girl and her parents
have seriously objected to his coming to
the house.
Bawsley and his wife and Murgaw
started cranberry picking Sunday and,
after going a mile, Murgaw turned back
I and would go no farther. Suspicion has
I been aroused that he returned to the
house, murdered the young lady aod other
children and fled. He was seen yesterday
going toward Shell Lake.
The parents returned Tuesday and found
the house burned and the children's bodies
cut and bruised, indicating foul play. The
neighbors throughout this region are up
in arms and would mob Murgaw on sight.
The sheriff is out with a posse and every
hiding place is carefully covered.
An inquest was held yesterday and it
was found that the young lady had had
her throat cut and the other children's
skulls had been crushed and their bodies
thrown into the flames. The bodies were
charred masses and their identification
was barely possible.
The young lady did not reciprocate the
love of Murgaw and it is believed that
after he left the parents of the girl he re
returned to the house and assaulted her,
then murdered his sweetheart and the
children. The place is located in a lonely
spot where neighbors are few and the
burning of the house did not attract at
The father and mother are nearly fren
zied over the loss of their children and
their home. If the murderer is caught
lynch law will be in order.
An inquest was held by Coroner Iver
H. Iverson of Webster and the verdict
was murder, and that the fire was started
to cover the traces of the murder. Noth
ing has been heard from Murgaw, but he
is thought to be near Spooner. He will
undoubtedly be caught, as every effort is
being made to apprehend him.

Belief That the Mental Condition of
President McKinley's Assassin
Is Abnormal.
Hmw TorkSun 8n«cl*l Sarvloa
New York, Sept. 18.—It is the earnest
desire of certain members of tfie medical
profession that Governor Odell or possibly
the court at Buffalo, shall appoint a com
mission composed of alienists of the high
est reputation and greatest experience,
so that there may be a thorough examina
tion of the mental and tempermental
characteristics of Czongosz. A commis
sion of that kind was appointed by Presi
dent Arthur to take a test of the assas
sin of Garfleld. so that the responsibility
could be determined. But that commis
sion was appointed by President Arthur
because there had been the gravest
doubts as to the sanity of Guiteau, and for
the purpose, in case he were pronounced
wholly irresponsible, of commuting his
sentence to imprisonment in the insane
In the case of the attempted assassi
nation of President Jackson, a thorough
ly competent medical examination of the
would-be assassin resulted in the unanim
ous opinion that the man was a lunatic,
and he was thereupon confined in an
asylum. The Guiteau commission dis
agreed, the majority holding him perfectly
responsible for his crime, although pro
nouncing him impaired mentally and phy
sically. The analysis after his death, of
his brain, showed a decided lesion, in
ducing a considerably diseased condition
of that organ.
Abnorinial Conditions Probable.
But in the case Czolgosz the alienists
believe there will be discovered some very
striking and remarkably abnormal condi
tions; not abnormal in the sense in which
the word is commonly used, for the act
itself was due to abnormal impulse, but
absolutely unuique in its manifestations,
in its causes, wholly outside even the
somewhat exceptional revelation of the
capacity of human nature to pass beyond
all reasonable bounds. Guiteau was
declamatory, theatrical. Even during his
trial he Insisted upon monopolizing the
whole procedure. He declaimed, shouted,
and was at times so violent and insulting
that Judge Cox threatened to put' him in
irons if he did not restrain himself. But
that is not an unusual characteristic of
the self-sought martyr facing his doom.
Czolgosz's manner, on the other hand,
if it be not the result of a carefully
studled, perfectly acted plan, is the effect
i of such monstrously abnormal condition
as to deserve, in the opinion of alienists
here, in the interest of science, the most
careful analysis and study. Some of the
authorities are inclined to believe that
he absolutely exhausted his energy and
all power of will at the moment he dis
charged the pistol at the president, and Is
now merely an inert, almost self-hypno
tized, human being. He may be that and
yet be wholly responsible, in the sense
in which the law 'uses the term, for hi*
The alienists are not certain whether
he would come within that cless de
scribed as under the influence of a morbid
megalomania, or whether he belongs to an
entirely different, perhaps a new, type,
which has found its first Individual ex
pression in him. His conduct at the hear
ing in Buffalo was such as to lead to the
suspicion that his case may present some
entirely new aspects to the alienists.
Twenty Thousand Dollars the Price
of Temporary Freedom.
Chicago, Sept. 18.—Magistrate Prindl
ville to-day decided to allow Emma Gold
man, the anarchist, her freedom until the
case comes up for hearing, under bond of
$20,000. Her attorneys suld they had se
cured $15,000 and immediately left the
courtroom to seek the additional money
necessary. Meanwhile Miss Goldman was
led back to the woman's annex at the
Harrison street station. She was visibly
disappointed at the amount of the bond
"I guess they thought they would make
the bond so big I could not get it," she
said; "but I have friends the police know
nothing about and I'll be out of here by
The hearing of Miss Goldman's case on
the charge of "conspiracy to murder
President McKinley" was set for to-mor
row. Her counsel, however, learning that
there would be no session of the courts
to-morrow because of the president's fu
neral, decided at a conference this morn
ing to take the matter of bail before the
magistrate to-day. The matter of Miss
Goldman's guilt or innocence of the charge
against her was not mentioned, as Justice
Prindiville has decided to follow the ex
ample of Judge Chetlain, who has the
cases of the other anarchists before him.
Miss Goldman was exceedingly cheerful
when she was brought into court by Chief
Matron Keegan, and chatted vivaciously
with her attorneys, Messrs. Saltiel, Gee
ting and Brown. She wore the blue walk
ing skirt and dark jacket which have be
come familiar at ,the station, but she had
secured a clean shirt waist, which she
announced with much satisfaction to the
"I can assure this court," said the law
yer, "that my client, If under no bond at
all other than her word, would appear be
fore this court whenever desired."
John E. Owens, representing the city
prosecutor, advanced no objection to bail
being allowed, but pleaded that, in view
I of the importance of the case and the na
tional interest in it, the bond be made as
heavy as possible in accordance with tha
Illinois statutes.
Miss Goldman declared that she hoped
to get out if for no other reason than to
show the police that she did not need or
care for their protection.
"I am tired of thte talk of protecting
me," she said. "I want to walk on the
street* and show them that I don't need
their assistance."
Lewis and Titus Accept a Most Re
pellant Task.
Buffalo, N. V., Sept. 18.—Loren L. Lewis
and Robert C. Titus have accepted the
assignment of Judge Emery in county
court, to act as counsel for Czolgosz upon
hie trial. Judge Titus will return from
Milwaukee on Friday and will then consult
with Judge Lewis and determine the line
of defense to toe pursued. Both of the
attorneys have been prominent in public
life in New York. Judge Lewis served
two terms in the state senate and four
teen years on the supreme court bench,
four of which were as a member of the
old general term of that court. Judge
Titus was district attorney of this county
for three yeara, was a state senator for
two terms and was elected as a judge of

Russia's Ruler Lauds at Dunkirk,
as per Schedule.
President Loubet Welcome* the
Citar Amid* the Thunder
of Cannon.
Dunkirk, France, Sept. 18.—In honor of
the visit of the czar, before 5 o'clock this
morning the streets of Dunkirk echoed i
with the measured tramp of infantry, '
marching to take up a position in the cor
don thrown around the section of the
docks where the presidential vessel, the
torpedo gunboat Cassini, was lying, and
along the line of the route from the pre- !
fecture, in which President Loubet stayed
over night, to the side of the dock. The
weather cleared considerably, this morn
ing, and by 7 o'clock, the hour fixed for
President Loubet's embarkation, the sun
was shining. There was a profuse dis
play of bunting at the harbor way. Docks
were closely packed with fishing smacks,
which presented a perfect forest of masts,
all bedecked with flags. A Btream of
spectators wended their way in the di
rection of the piers and wharves from
which a glimpse of the Cassini might be
gained as she threaded a passage through
the docks to the open sea. The portion
of the docks on which is situated the
Chamber of Commerce building, at which
the official lunch took place to-day, and
near which the Cassini was moored, wa»
completely cut off by troops, and admis
sion was denied except to members of
the press and to those persons accompany
ing President Loubet. The Cassini was
a distance of 100 yards from the landing
stage and a small crowd was allowed to
assemble behind the cordon and witness
the departure of President Loubet and the
landing of the czar and the main body of
the visitors.
Dunkirk: Citizens Disappointed.
The inhabitants of Dunkirk saw abso
lutely nothing of the czar, as the cere
monies took place behind an impenetrable
wall of soldiery, and the czar, in company j
with President Loubet, entered the train
at the dock side. After lunching at the
chamber of commerce they left for Com
paigne without even traversing the streets
of Dunkirk, These arrangements were a
source of keen disappointment to the Dun
kirk citizens, who having lavishly dec
orated their town, hoped that the czar
would drive through some of the main
streets to the railroad depot instead of
going on board the train inside the docks.
At 10 o'clock the Cassini, which had
proceeded to the three-mile limit to
escort the Standart, the czar's yacht, into
French waters, returned to the roadstead. !
accompanied by the czar's yacht and the
Russian cruiser.
Enormous crowds invaded Dunkirk by
train and road. Thousands proceeded on
foot and by street cars to the promenade
on the seashore of Malo les Bains, a sub
urb two miles from Dunkirk, whence was
obtained a magnificent view of the fleet
riding at anchor In two lines. The num
ber of ships was small, but, with grim,
black hulls, dirty yellow, upper works
and low free boards, they looked very
A Goodly Fleet.
The following is a list of the French
ships which took part in the review:
First-class battleships: Ma&sene, Formida
ble, Courbet, Charles Martel, Bouvel, Jaure
Armored cruisers: Dupuy de Lome, Bruix>
Protected cruisers: D'Assas, Surcouf, Gali
Coast defense battleships: Bouvines, Amiral
Trehouart, Jemmanes, Valmy.
Destroyers: Yatagan, Durandal, Faucon
Topedo dispatch boat: Cassini.
Seagoing torpedo boat: Grenadier.
Submarines: Narval, Morse, Francais.
In addition, twelve torpedo boats at
tached to the ports of Cherbourg and
Dunkirk, were present at the naval dis
play. The flotilla of torpedo boat de
stroyers patrolled the lines of warships
and kept the excursion steamers from en
croaching on the prohibited area. The
entire squadron was dressed in bunting.
Finally the white hull of the Cassini
could be perceived by the concourse as
sembled on the sands at St. Malo les
Baines, emerging from behind the long
pier which Juts out to sea from the docks.
Immediately afterwards was heard the
sound of cannon, as the first battleship
began a salute of twenty-one guns. Be
fore the smoke had risen from the mouth
of the cannon the heavy guns of the other
vessels took up the salute, and their thun
der reverberated over the land and 6hook
the windows of the casino and hotels.
Change of Program.
Owing to the ropgh sea and the fact
that the Cassini is an extremely bad sea
boat, it was decided that President
Loubet and his party should embark
on the imperial Russian yacht Standart
and thence review the squadron, instead
of the czar and czarina boarding the Cas
sini. As soon as the Standart was
sighted the Cassini steamed to meet her.
Then Admiral Menard's flagship Massena
gave a signal and the heavy cannon of
the fleet boomed a salute of 101 guns.
When the Standart and the Cassini were
about 300 yards apart a boat was lowered
from the Cassini and President Loubet
and others took their places there. The
boat was then towed to the Standart by a
steam launch, and President Loubet and
his party boarded the Russian yacht.
After a short interval the Standart
steamed to the head of the line and the
review of the French warships began.
As the long, black hull of the Standart,
with yellow funnels, proceeded slowly up
the line, the crowds ashore cheered for
the czar and the republic of France.
Met by the President.
The czar and czarina landed here at
2:20 p. m. President Loubet disembarked
an hour earlier. He left the Standart in
the roadstead after the review and re-em
barked on the Cassini. The czar re
mained on board the Standart after the
President Loubet met the imperial
couple at the gangway as the Standart wu
moored to the quay and gave his arm to
the czarina, who was simply attired, wear
ing a black tulle hat and a black serge
dress, which was relieved by a magnifi
cent brooch and ear rings composed of
splendid pearls set In diamonds. She car
ried a silver-mounted umbrella in her
hand. The czar wore the uniform of a
Russian admiral, with the scarlet sash
and insignia of the Legion of Honor. The
landing of the Imperial party was greeted
with frantic, enthusiasm. The bands
played the Rusian hymn.

Yokohama. Sept. 18.—The Marquis Ito
started to-day ion an extended tour of the
United States and Europe.
And Many Greenbacks.
To secure additional information di
rectly from the people, It is proposed to
send little boxes of gold and greenbacks
to persons who write the most interesting,
detailed and truthful descriptions of their
experience on the following topics:
1. How have you been affected by cof
fee drinking and by changing from cof
fee to Postum?
2. Do you know any one who has been
driven away from Postum because it came
to the table weak and characterless at the
first trial?
3. Did you set such a person right re
garding the easy way to make Postum
clear, black, and with a crisp, rich taste?
4. Have you ever found-a better way
j to make it than to use four heaping tea
spoonsful to the pint of water, let stand
on stove until real boiling begins, then
note the clock and allow it to continue
easy boiling full fifteen minutes from that
time, stirring down occasionally? (A
piece of butter about the size of a navy
bean, placed in the pot will prevent boil
ing over).
6. Give names and account of those you
know to have been cured or helped In
health by the dismissal of coffee and the
daily use of Postum Food Coffee in its
6. Write names and addresses of twenty
friends whom you believe would be ben
efited by leaving off coffee. (Your name
will not be divulged to them).
Address your letter to the Postum
Cereal Co., Ltd., Battle Creek, Mich.,
writing your own name and address
Be honest and truthful, don't write
poetry or fanciful letters, just plain,
truthful statements.
Decision will be made between Oct.
30th and Nov. 10th, 1901, by three Judges,
not members of the Postum Cereal Co.,
and a neat little box containing a $10 gold
piece sent to each of the five best writers,
a box containing a $5 gold piece to each
of the twenty next best writers, a $2
greenback to each of the 100 next best,
and a $1 greenback to each of the 200 next
best writers, making cash prizes distrib
uted to 326 persons.
Almost every one interested in pure
food and drink is willing to have their
name and letter appear in the papers,
for such help as it may offer to the human
race. However, a request to omit name
will be respected.
Every friend of Postum is urged to write
and each letter will be held in high esteem
by the company, as an evidence of such
friendship, while the little boxes of gold
and envelopes of money will reach many
modest writers whose plain and sensible
letters contain the facts desired, although
the sender may have but small taith in
winning at the time of writing.
Talk this subject over with your friends
and see how many among you can win
prlaes. It is a good, honest competition
and in the best kind of a cause. Cut this
statement out for it will not appear again.
