Marcus A, Hanna in the Senate Cham- 1 I

Magnificent Floral Tributes Banked the Cas
ket Containing the Distinguished Dead
Chaplain Hale's Eloquent Eulogy of the
Life and Character of Fallen Statesman
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. In thc
I presence of the grlef-strlcken family,
of many friends whose sorrow was
scarcely less pronounced, of tho Sen
ate and House of Representatives, of
dignitaries from all the other branches
of thc Government and of thc chief of
ficial representatives of moat of the
foreign powers, the funeral of the late
Senator Marcus A. Hanna occurred to
day in the Senate chamber, tho scene
of his most recent activities and of his
entire ofllcial life.
The spectacle was Imposing nnd quite
In harmony with thc public estimate of
the creat man's services to his coun
try and the world. The ceremony was
dignified and simple In consonance with
his character.
The Senate chamber lent Itself natu
rally to the occasion. It Is especially
barren of decorations and the dark fur
niture, heavy walls and subdued light
were quite In keeping with the sorrow
ful proceedings which were the occa
sion of the gathering.
Seldom has a more distinguished
body of people been collected In Wash
ington to do honor to either tho living
or dead, and rarely has thero been wit
nessed a more Impressive proceeding.
The floor of the chamber was filled
with the representatives of the ofllcial
life of the national capital, the galle
ries with people from all the higher
walks of society, including the families
of officials and many persons of dis
tinction In the professional and busi
ness world. The hall Is not of great
dimensions and admission to the gal
leries was so regulated that there was
no crowding. The demand for tickets
was such that if it could have been
met the space would have been filled
many times over.
In the front rank of the eminent as
semblage gathered Immediately about
the bier of the departed statesman, sat
the President. He was Hanked by tho
members of his Cabinet, all of whom
had been closely affiliated with Senator
Hanna by ties of friendship and politi
cal association.
Nearby were the Chief Justice and
the Associate Justices of the Supreme
court of the United States, garbed In
their black robes of ofilce, which fitted
well Into the scene of sorrow.
There were scarcely any absentees
from among the members of the Sen
ate. Each and all of them were vis
ibly affected and It was not difficult to
detect their sorrowful countenances the
sense of personal loss that all felt In
Mr. Hunnn's death.
Thc religious ceremony was fittingly
placed In the hands of Dr. Edward Ev
erett Hale, chaplain of the Senate, giv
ing It an official character, while prc
aervlng its solemnity and Insuring Its
simple dignity
Thc ceremony began shortly after 12
o'clock, but the gallery doors were
thrown open long before that hour, and
by 11 o'clock fully half the gallery seats
wero occupied, mostly by Indies.
No order of any kind was maintained
at thc Capitol In thc arrival of partici
pants in thc services. Tho President
reached the cast portico of the Senate
wing at 11:53 a. in., accompanied by
Mr. Locb. his secretary. They proceed
ed at once to the President's room,
where they were joined by the Cabinet
The President's family came soon
aftr and were assigned to seats In the
members' gallery, where they were
joined by Mr. Loeb after tho President
and Cabinet had entered the Senate
chamber. Mumbers of the diplomatic
corps came Individually and assembled
In the Senate reception room.
It was juet noon when thc members
of Senator Planna's family arrived. Mrs.
Hanna came on the arm of her son,
Dan It. Hanna. and Mrs. Daulol Hanna
on the arm of II- M. Hanna. They were
followed by Mr and Mrs. McCurnilck
and Mr. and Mrs. Parsons, Miss Phelps
and personal friends of thc family.
Thc casket wan borne Into the cham
ber by a squad of Capitol police, headed
by Sergcant-at-Arms Randall of the
Senate, and was immediately followed
by tho otflcial committee, with Senator
Forakor and Gen. Grosvenor at Its head.
Slowly the little procession moved down
the main aisle of the chamber and the
casket was tenderly placed upon the
catafalque which wan to hold It.
The hall was banked with flowers,
which had been sent in great profusion
by friends. Thero was a. large wreath
of orchids surrounding u cross of vloletB
from the President.
The Senato contributed an Immense
wreath of orchids, carnations, roses and
violets, tho Republican Association of
Ohio another almost as lurge, and tho
thc Gridiron club of this city another,
which was of striking beauty.
Senator Frye, as President pro torn,
stood In front of his chair as tho body
wan borne to Its resting place. All the
people In the galleries rose as If with
one Impulse as the casket was borne to
Its place.
The pall-bearers had ecarcely retired
whan tht Sonata ;vyjw called- to ordej
and the Senators who had entered took
their seats upon the fall of tho gavel ot
the President pro tern. Immediately, af
terwards thc House of Representatives,
with Speaker Cannon at Its head, was
announced, and thc members of that
body filed slowly In, taking tho seats
previously assigned to them, tho Sen
ators and visitors In the galleries ris
ing. Speaker Cannon took his place at the
left of President pro tern. Frye. Then
came the Embasadors and Ministers
from foreign countries, who were given
the seats next to the front row of the
Senato chamber, and they were Imme
diately followed by Admiral Dewey and
MaJ.-Gen. Gillespie, representing the
navy and army. The Chlof Justice and
Assistant Justices of the Suprorae court
were ushered into seats on tho Demo
cratic side.
President Roosevelt and members of
hlB Cabinet were then announced, and
all present rose, wultlng for the tap of
the gavel. The Presidential party was
escorted by Col. Symons and Command
er Wlnslo.w, In full uniform. The Pres
ident and his Cabinet occupied the front
row of seats at the right of tho presid
ing officer.
Twenty minutes later Mrs. Hanna,
leaning heavily upon the arm of her
son, Dan R. Hanna, entered the cham
ber and took a seat in the front row on
the left of the presiding officer. She was
followed by her daughters and their
husbands and other members of tho
family and immediate friends, all ot
whom were given seats In tho Immedi
ate vicinity of the casket. Every one
present rose as thc family entered and
remained atandlnar until they had been
Presldont pro tem. Frye then ad
dressed tho Senato, saying.
"Senators: You have solemnly and
lovingly dedicated this day to an ob
servance of a proper funeral ceremony
over Marcus A, Hanna, late a distin
guished member of this body, and all
business will bo suspended to that end.
"We will unite In prayer with tho
chaplain of the National House of Rep
resentatives." Chaplain Couder, wlio occupied a scat
by the side of Chaplain Halu of the
Senate, Immediately In front of the pre
siding officer, offered up an invocation.
Immediately afterward Dr. Halo de
livered his funeral address. He did not
use his notes in speaking, but never
halted for a word and, although a man
of over SO years of age, hl3 voice pene
trated every corner of the hall.
Mr. Hale began his sermon as fol
lows: "Those who knew him best, loved him
most. And those who knew hlrn little
loved him much."
"You speak of no one else as you go
and come In these days; and this Is the
Impression which is made, saj on a
man like mt. almost a stranger to him
personally. I knew him very little, and
I have felt his power and charm. There
aro a hundred men who are hearing me
better fitted than I am to descrlbo him
or to account for his power. But I
think they would all have to recognize
the promptness, the intensity of
thought nnd action which comes when
a man's heart Is engaged the energy
nnd success of a man who does what
he loves to do, what he wants to do,
j what he ought to do, because he loves
It, because ho believes in It, because ho
i lives not for himself, but for those
j whom he so gladly serves.
' I was talking once with a distin
guished missionary who had spent his
life In one of those phlloeophlcal coun
tries whoso religion came more or less
Into fashion among us half a century
ago, and he said to me that tho people
among whom he had lived loved the
Lord, their Ood, with all their heart
and with all their mind, but they did
1 not love him with all their strength.
Our friend loved with all his might. He
