Inqairr Into (he Cause of Trouble at Capitol Tuesday. MaJ. Sylvester of the police department Is conducting an Investigation regarding the crush at the Capitol Tuesday after noon. where so many j?eople were Injured, lie received a report today concerning the Injury to Mri. Mary Wood, who waa one of many persona standing against the rope when the crowd made a break for the Cap ital. She was under the impression that a big colored man kicked her intentionally, but those who were fclth her at the time do not agree with her. Uaud Key says the rope was cut by a big colored man who rushed up the steps. He was stopped and thrown back against the crowd, and Miss Key thinks her friend may have been Injured at that time. She is certain the colored man did not kick Miss Wood. Fannie Herman, who was with them, saw no one kick Miss Wood. Mrs. Susie E. Boteler, who was appar ently seriously Injured, was not kicked by a horse, as was at first supposed. She be came exhausted and fell, and was trampled by the crowd. Today her condition was favorable for speedy recovery. C'apt- Pearson, who was left in charge of the police at the Capitol when MaJ. Sylves ter was compelled to leave, will submit a written report of the affair later. Eiprfiiloii by Sons of St. George. At a meeting held last evening of the members of Capital City Lodge, Order Sons of St. George, composed of men of English birth, but citizens of the United States, the following resolutions were adopted and or dered to be sent to Canton, Ohio, setting forth that "the members of Capital City I?dge, Order Sons of St. George, in unison with all true American citizens, express their condemnation of the foul murder of our beloved President, the chosen executive of a free people, and Join in the common sorrow that overwhelms the nation." Sympathy with Mrs. McKinley was ex pressed. The resolutions were signed by C. A. Mar dens, president, and P. L. Bonnet, secre tary. Death of Maticiss Schseker. The Navy Department has been inform ed of the death at Yokohama, on the 10th instant, of Herman Schaeker, a mu sician of the naval force at Guam, who was taken to Japan to be operated upon for an attack of appendicitis. AT MOUNT PLEASANT Services Held at the Congregational Church, THREE ELOQUENT ADDRESSES Assistant Secretary Campbell Speaks of McKinley as a Man. HIS MILITARY CAREER The service at the Mount Pleasant Con gregational Church this morning was one of great simplicity and impressiveness. The order of the service was as follows: Funeral march, Chopin; trio, "Blessed are the Pure in Heart," Hodges; devotional, the pastor; "Lead. Kindly Light," Miss Mary E. Pond; "William McKinley in Pri vate Life," Hon. Frank L Campbell; "Sometime We'll Understand," Mrs. Thos. C. Noyes; "William McKinley the Soldier," General Ellis Spear; "One Sweetly Solc.nn Thought," Dr. Charles L. Bliss; "William McKinley the Statesman," Major Horace L. Piper; "Nearer, My God. to Thee," the congregation; the benediction; postlude, Dead March from Saul. The beautiful hymn, "Some Time We'll Understand," by Mrs. Thomas C. Noyes, is the same which she sang at the Capitol during the services Tuesday, the hymn having been selected by Mrs. Alacfar land. The words are so appropriate to the occasion that they are reproduced: Not . ow, but in the coming rears, it may bo in the better land, We'll read the meaning of our tears, And tliere, some time, we'll understand. We'll catch the broken thread again. And lintah what we here began; Heav'n will the mysteries explain. And then, ah, then, we'll understand. We'll know why clouds instead of sun Were orer many a cherished plan; Why song has tensed when scarce begun; "lis there, some time, we'll understand. Why wiiat we long for most of all Kludes so oft our eager hand; Why hopes are crushed and castles fall, L'p here, some time, we'll understand. Co?l knows the way. He holds the key, He guides us with unerring hand. Some time with tearless eyes we'll see; Yes there, up there, we'll understand. CHORUS. Then trust in God through all thy days; Fear not, for He doth hold thy hand; Though dark thy way, still sing and praise; Some time, some time, we'll understand. In his opening words, the pastor, Rev. M. Ross Fish burn, said: When Edmund Burke died in 1797 Chan ning wrote: "There is but one event; Burke is dead" And now that our be loved McKinley has passed through the swinging gate into the great beyond, grief-stricken America has but one thought: The President is dead. It is told of Hercules that whether he stood or walked or sat or whatever thing he did he conquered. And of William McKinley we may say that whether he be regarded as private citizen, as soldier or as states man, he occupies the Imperial throne of manhood. AinUtant Secretary Campbell. Frank L. Campbell, assistant secretary of the Interior, speaking of William Mc Kinley as a private citizen, said: "I have been asked to say a* few words concerning the private life of the great de ceased. This involves in a measure the family and the home life, some of the fea tures of which are too sacred for public discussion. The family Us in a sense a holy secret society. I therefore reverently approach the portals of the home of the honored and dear departed and bring to you something of its beautiful Inner life. From the private life of William McKinley nothing but good can be brought, for nothing but good was there. It was my privilege to know Major McKinley for more than a third of a century. Born In the same year, we started In life's active work about the same time in Stark county Ohio. That county has since been my legal residence, as It was his home to the ti^e of his death. We met soon after our going to that county, and our acquaintance soon ripened into friendship which grew and strengthened as the years went by "He as a young lawyer hung out ' his shingle in Canton in 18?7, and thus began a busy and strenuous life, the sad culmi nation of which is the occasion of our meet ing here today. His Integrity and broad in telligence soon brought him before the pub lic eye and Into public position. To make his acquaintance was to become his friend. To know him well was to love him for his kindliness of heart and manliness of char acter. These were stamped upon his early manhood as part of the man. Whence came these lovable and noble qualities? Were they inherent? Yes; but they were fostered and developed by the beneficent influence of a Christian home. The seed of early Christian teaching fell In good ground and brought forth abundantly. "In 1852 his parents moved from Niles to Poland, a town In Mahoning county, in or der that he and his brother and sisters might have the educational advantages of an academy loeated there. "He then went to Meadvllle College, Penn sylvania, but had to leave before finishing his course on account of delicate health After a rest he became a country schooi teacher. While so engaged the war of the rebellion broke out, and he, at the age of eighteen, enlisted in the Union army After a four-years' service amid the temp tations of army life Major McKinley came home, a young man of established Chris tian character. "He then took up the study of law, gradu ated at Yale and was admitted to the bar in Ohio. Today in the city of Canton where be began his work, the clay taber nacle In which he did so much is being gently and lovingly laid away, while a na tion mourns and 80,000,000 of his fellow citizens shed their tears over his bier. "The first formal public address which I know of his - making was a temperance speech to an immense crowd in a grove near the town where I then lived. It made a marked Impression and Is yet talked about by those who heard It. This at once gave him a high place in the esteem of his fellow cittizens in the county, and when two years later he was put forward by his party for the office of prosecuting attorney he was triumphantly elected by a majority of 800, although noromally the opposing party carried the county by 700 to 800. "Thus began his public career, so much of which is known wherever Intelligence is found. His congressional career began March 4, 1877, and In just twenty years to a day he was Inaugurated President of the United States. Did he change in all those years? "Ye3 and no. Yes, because he could not. as public duties multiplied, give as much time to friendly Intercourse as he would; and no, because every one of his old friends of whatever station in life had access to him, and met a cordial greeting. He never forgot a friend and I never knew him to resent in a harmful way an act of un friendliness. Before closing this brief talk about one I loved as a brother, I venture to touch upon the sacred precincts of the home. I slightly knew Major McKlnley's parents, and knew from his actions as well as his words his great love and veneration for them. In 1882, while he was governor I was with him in a political campaign, and learned from him of his aged father's se vere Illness. He spoke feelingly and ex pretsed a strong desire to get home and to tiie bedside of the loved one. This he did a day or two later, and a short time thereafter he saw the aged eyes closed in death and the remains of the revered father laid away In the tomb. "When Inaugurated President he brought his mother, then about ninety, to the White House to have her in his home and near him. Her health soon began to fail and she longed for the quiet of the cimton home. Yielding to her wish he took here there, when, in a few months (December 1897). having seen her dutiful son occudv the highest place In the gift of the Ameri can people and the highest on earth her eyes were closed in death, and she ' too was laid away. ' "I come now to speak of a still more ten der relation?that of husband and wife The one most dear to him, now his mournln* widow, was ever uppermost In his mind, and the chief thought of his heart. Malor McKinley and Miss Ida Saxton were rS rted in 1871. Two daughters were born to them. These died near the same time in early childhood. From the terrible shoek McKinley never fully recovered. Her ill-health and her devoted husband's un remitting attention have been so well known that I scarcely need speak of I have often. when be vu In Congress, and a very busy man, ibpen In his room at the Ebbltt for an l^uior more at a time. Twice or oftener 8n hour, It mattered not who were present, he w lid excuse hlmeelf and step across tflfe "hair to his wife's room and return In a minute or two. This, to have her feel th& &h?*was never out of mind. I have seen the same thing occur at the White HouJe.- hftjhavlng a room full of distinguished Tftllerar. Wonderful love, unexampled faithfulness. But why dwell longer on such a cnaracTer? "A President has beja taken from us by the ruthless handjof nt assassin, and we today bow In humble submission, unable to understand. Clfeat and good was Presi dent MeKlnley as a citizen and friend. He was a man In whom .there was no guile?one pure in thought.'fc'oriPfand speech, honest in purpose and noble In character. One whose private llfjf migttt well be emulated by every American citlfcen. He has gone and we ask. Why was he taken? We know not now, but we shall Ttnow hereafter. Gen. Ellis Spear's Address. William McKinley as a soldier was the theme of an address by Gen. Ellis Spear. Gen. Spear said, in part: If I were simply to recite the barfe out lines of the history of President McKln ley's military service. I might perhaps bet ter read what has recently appeared In the public prints and Is known to you all. So far as I am aware he has left no record of personal reminiscences of that service. He enlisted in June of 1861 at the age of seventeen years, as a private In the Zid Regiment of Ohio Volunteer Infantry. After ten months of service, when less than eigh teen, he was made a sergeant. Five months later he was commissioned a second lieu tenant for gallant conduct at the battle of Anttetacn. Four months still later he was promoted to be first lieutenant, and in July, 1864, he became captain, all in the same regiment. For gallant and distinguished services at Fisher's Hill and Cedar Creek, not much later, he was commissioned major by brevet. To this rank he had risen in three years of continuous active service in the field, in the same regiment, among comrades and under officers who ob served his conduct and knew his merit. We are told that he*never lost a day from duty nor was absent from any engagement in which his regiment took part. This Is a good record, surely. A boy, un der twenty-one years of age. a volunteer utterly without previous military Instruc tion or training, he bore like a veteran the hard fare and harder marches, the expo sure to heat and cold, the malaria ol camps, and the strain and stress of thirty battles and skirmishes, and so bore him self. was of such character and strength and discretion, that he is found, after this severe trial, fit to command men In battle and camp, at an age when most youths are at school. But the paragraphs which recite these brave acts of his military service must be read between the lines. What It means lor a boy of. seventeen, loaded with a soldier's burden, to bearthe exposure of active com paigns, to march and fight In company with strong and mature men, and to dare and bear as much as they and all that men can endure, and to face wounds and death In a war such as that which began in 1801. you who are fathers and mothers, with boys of that age, can somewhat compre hend. From what we have learned of his char acter and high and noble spirit we may be sure that to him it was no mere love of adventure which Impelled him nor even military ambition, but rather love of coun try. He was In thirty battles and skirmishes. What does that mean? Let those attempt to tell who saw the surglngs back and forth, the deadly* struggles, the wreck and the 10.000 kille^ and wounded on that hot September day .at AiUietam, where this boy of eighteen won his first commission; or those who charged" with him In that "whirlwind battfe" al!' Winchester, or at Fisher's Hill, or:stood with him on that long and doubtful, but.iinally decisive, day at Cedar Creek, where he won his brevet. The heat and' 'strain,' the fierce excite ment, the hot haste, the shouting and up roar, the stern ditermftiation and sickening fall of men her? and*- there, all in that great and complex triagedy which we call battle, nobody cirri adequately describe; but with all that MeKlnlejr was familiar and In all that he had mafty times borne him self well before He had" attained the years of manhood. ***" 1 At such an age,/arid with able and de serving men muflS ofd#r and in advance of himself in rank, .it Is riot surprising that he did not rise to Mghei^cfceMnartd. Indeed It would have beert 91,111 tnOTe remarkable if he had so risen. Perhaps, also, those finer and higher qualities of mind and heart, afterward so conspicuous and which made him so honored and lovted, were not wholly compatible with, and excluded the fiercer traits, and that consuming fire which mark ed his great oommander In the valley. Fortunately his extreme youth, and ner haps lack of Intense military ambition, for; bade the development of military at the expense of civil qualities and high military eminence. The duty of the soldier was ended, and happily is not so often of the first Importance. Those of the statesman were destined for many years of the high est character and service. But he did his duty perfectly and al ways. The quality of this perfect service Is the same whether the man carry a mus ket or wear stars. And when the war was over what a strong foundation was this military experi ence for the future efforts of such a mind and heart, and for the future fame of those high achievements to which he at once ap plied himself. For he was not one of those who, having served their country well, thereafter lived In satisfied consideration of such services as sufficient for the re mainder of life, but at once, forgetting the things that were past, turned his face to new duties and achievements, as Col. Roosevelt advised his men on their muster out. Part of what I would attempt to say here I find a thousand times better said In that beautiful poem of Wordsworth, entitled "The Happy Warrior," part of which 1 read: Who is that happy warrior "Whose powers shed rouud him In th? common strifes Or mild concerns of ordinary life A constant influence, a peculiar grace; Hut who. If be is called upon to face j Some awful moment to which heaven has joined Oreat issues good or bad for human kind. Is happy as a lover, and attired With sudden brightness like c man Inspired." Who Is this Happy Warrior? The Ideal of the poets our hearts tell us represents well him who so serenely faced death at Buffalo, and whom the nation mourns and buries today at Canton. Major Horace L. Piper made the con cluding address of the morning, paying an eloquent tribute to William McKinley as a statesman. BIG CHICAGO FIRE. A Disastrous Conflairration la the Wholesale District.

LARGE CONGREGATION ATTENDS Justice Brewer and Dr. Merrill E Gates the Speakers. SPECIAL MUSIC BY CHOIR Every seat and all available standing room waa occupied during the memorial service* In the First Congregational Church. In the absence of the pastor, Dr. Merrill E. Gates, former president of Am herst College, presided. The services be gan at 11 o'clock. Addresses were deliv ered bj^ Justice David J. Brewer of the Supreme Court of the United States and hy Dr Gates. Music was made a special feature of the exercises, which were opened by an organ prelude by Professor Blschoff, fallowed by "Hark, Hark, My Soul," by the choir. A brief invocation was pro nounced by Dr. Gates, when the congrega tion and choir san?? "Lead, Kindly Light." The Scripture reading by Dr. Gates was followed by Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar," Morse, sun? by a quartet. Rev. J. H. Bradford, chaplain of the Loyal Legion, offered prayer, in which he touchingly referred to the dead and the living in the family of the late President, and concluded with a supplication for the new President. Justice Brewer was Introduced by Dr. Gates. His address was brief, and while he paid an eloquent tribute to the memory of the distinguished dead, the burden of his theme was the lessons which the people should learn from the calamity which had befallen the nation. Justice Brewer said that anarchy must be driven from among us, and to do this he impressed upon his hearers the necessity for respect for the law on the part of every citizen, even In the smallest detail. Jnstlce Brewer's Remarks. In the course of his address Justice Brewer said: "What shall we do? Many things are suggested. On every side we hear strong language, expressive of the public horror at the crime. 'Anarchists must go;' 'An archism must be stamped out.' Some are eager to take the law into their hands and deal out summary Justice upon all who bear the odious name. They would rejoice to see every anarchist put speedily to death. Others are demanding that new legislation be enacted, while executives and legisla tors are declaring that In the coming win ter they will see to It that laws are passed to drive anarchism from our borders. I may not discuss the terms of proposed legislation, as no one can foresee either what it may be or what questions may arise out of it. "But there are lessons to be drawn from the assassination of President McKinley by an anarchist which I wish to notice. One which should be borne home to every citizen of the nation, whether In or out of office. Is the necessity of a personal re spect for the law. We denounce the as sassination as a horrible crime. We de nounce anarchism as the spirit of lawless ness, and its followers as outtaws because they look upon all forms of government as wrong and all men In office as their ene mies. But while anarchism may be the extreme of lawlessness, and anarchists the worst of outlaws, every breaking of the law breathes, though perhaps in a slight degree, the same spirit of lawlessness. Ex ample la better than precept, and every one may well remember that he does something toward checking the spirit of lawlessness and preventing the spread of anarchism when In his own life he manifests a con stant and willing obedience in letter and sptiit to all the mandates of the law. Teaching of Anarchy. "Again, the anarchist declares that all government is wrong. He professes to be the enemy' of all rulers. Social institu tions, as they are, he denounces, pleading that they are unjust and oppressive. Now, if the workings of the social order are made such as to insure justice and peace and comfort to all. slowly the spirit of anarchism will disappear, for all will feel that society as It exists is a blessing rather than a curse to them. And each one of us may in his place and life help to make all these workings of society clean er and better, gentler and purer?more help ful to those who need, less burdensome to those who toil, and richer in all things to all men. "If the American people shall not spend all Its energies in denunciation of this awful crime or in efforts by force to re move anarchism and anarchists from our midst, but, moved and touched by the sad lesson, shall strive to fill the social life with more sweetness and blessing, then will it be that William McKinley, great in life, will become, partly on account of the cir cumstances of his death, greater and more Influential in the future; an enduring bless ing to the nation of which he was the honored ruler." Dr. Gates followed the justice in an elo quent tribute to McKinley, both as a man and as President, emphasizing the fact that his great success in both capacities was due to his sincerity and singleness of heart in his belief as a Christian. He was beloved by more people of a single nation than any ruler had ever been before him. The Overahadowlng Sorrow. "From the suffering of these last days there has come to all thoughtful souls a fresh and strong conviction of the unity of our people, of the unchanged and deepening vigor and Wholesomeness of our national life. And this conviction has come to us through our sense of a great loss, through the universal appreciation of the very noble characteristics of that deeply loved man, the head of our nation, whom this shocking crime has taken from us. "No ruler in the world was so deeply and Intelligently loved by so many millions of people. No ruler could have met the sud den breaking of all his plans, the quick and supreme call for the surrender of authority of office, and of life itself, with a more ab solutely unfaltering trust and submission to the holy will of God. The love the peo ple bore to him and the loving surrender he showed to the will of God, must work to gether to sanctify and bless this loss to the national life of our beloved land. "In the whole history of the world we have reason to suppose that no man called to be a ruler of his fellow-men has ever been so intelligently and deeply loved while still living by so many millions of people. There was no period In the ancient history of the world when the sway of a king or an emperor extended over 70,000,000 of people who were intelligent enough to estimate his character, to appreciate his worth, and voluntarily to rendfer to him admiration and love. The empires which even nomi nally included 70,000,000 have been few in number. They have never comprised 70, 000,000 of intelligent and thoughtful sub jects, fellow-citizens and compatriots of the ruler. That Gractoa* Sovereign, the Queen. "Even under that gracious sovereign, the Queen and Empress Victoria, whose shin ing virtues the world so well remembers, and whose loss the world mourns, it was not possible to find so large a body of In telligent citizens of common national life as we have In the millions who today mourn the loss of their chosen ruler. Presi dent McKinley. Millions of her subjects wefre In her Indian empire. And, Indeed the most of her subjects everywhere had for her an affectionate regard which was enhanced by her virtues, but which had its first Impulse In the sturdily loyal disposi tion to be true to the rightful heir to the crown. The man who Is the choice of the people for the highest place In our system of free government Is chosen for what he Is, aijd for what it to believed he will do aim not in the following out of any blind impulse of loyalty to the representative of a royal family. His character therefore reacts upon the citizens who elect him di rectly. powerfully, constantly. "And among President* whom our people have loved it is not derogating from the fame of any to say that to none was the tribute of affection given from so many millions of willing hearts as to William McKinley. Washington, the father of his country, had the respect and admiration of all, and he had the love of most of the na tion; but the whole nation then numbered no more souls than are now found in the The Lansburgh Furniture and Carpet Co., Inter-Ocean Building.

It is by selling at such low prices and at the same time granting liberal terms of credit that we have built up such a big business as to require the huge Iuter-Ocean Building to house us, and we intend to continue the same policy. All the new goods are marked in plain figures, and those figures are to low that you will not wonder that we anticipate an immense busi ness this season. They are not the usual credit house figures at all, but lower than the lowest cash prices to be found any where else. Those Magmifiieeinit Pnaimos, The Haines & Co., Foster & Co. and Brewster & Co., which we are now agents for, charm all who hear them. They are strictly high-grade instruments, and fully guaranteed. We offer them on easy terms at $60 less than the same grade of piano can be bought for cash at any piano store. Come and try them.

Lincoln, great est type of the new American, noblest pro duct of this system of government by dis cussion and moral suasion to which as a nation we are committed; Lincoln, greatest of all our Presidents, in what he endured and wrought?'more absolute In power than any monarch of modern times, through the reverence of his countrymen for his honesty, his wisdom, his sincerity, his faith in God and the noble simplicity of his character'?Lincoln had been President during a war. In which nearly half of the country had found itself conquered, and years must pass before love could go out to the conqueror from the millions whose plans he had opposed. Garfield, the second mar tyred President, was endeared to the whole nation by his genial sympathy, his brilliant promise and his courageous and unselfish endurance of suffering. But he had not been the head of the nation long enough to enable the people to feel that they had fathomed the man and understood and loved him. Endeared to the People. "William McKinley, coming up from the people by a life career that the people could understand, trust and admire, was endeared to the nation by all the soldlarly memories of the war, too, and yet In the war that gave him that humble military title, doubly endeared to ua all now as It falls from the lips of the one who most deeply mourns him? 'Major McKinley' served as the rank and file serve, faithfully and honorably, and yet in no such way that any one would say of him it was his war record that made him President. At every point of his career he has been of the i>eo ple, from the people, with the people, yet with honor and with God. For the last twenty years he has been a leader. But wonderful as has been his leadership In these latest years, he has not led the peo ple by exhorting them to be led'. He has led them by himself going along that path of sincere manhood, consistent patriotism and high principle which is the true and natural road for American citizens." Problem of Anarchy. Dr. Gates spoke of the personality of President McKinley and the ease with which all people could meet him. Refer ence was made to the loyal trust of the President in southern leaders during the war with Spain. Concluding his remarks Dr. Gates said: "In the spirit of Jesus Christ we must solve the problem of anarchy. As Chris tians we must 'seek to save' as well as t6 punish and restrain these anarchists. We must try to take hold upon the strongholds of anarchy with a mission to win these lust men by the stronger hold of the living love of Christ! We must meet the other great questions of our national life in the spirit of Christian love and devotion to that righteousness in nations and In men which is the holy will of God. "So shall the memory of our martyred President speak to all the people through his favorite hymns, 'Lead, Kindly Light,' 'Nearer, My God to Thee,' 'Thy Will Be Done.' " "I am a Pilgrim" was sung by the choir, and after a closing prayer for Mrs. Mc Kinley and President Roosevelt, and for the enlightening blessing of God upon an archists, in which the congregation re sponded, the service closed with the hymn, "Nearer, My God, to Thee." in which all joined.

VeKINLBY ARCH SHOULD BE BIO. A Small One Would Wot Be Appro* printe In WashlBgtoa. From the New York Tribune. The movement started In Chicago on Monday for the erection of an arch In mem ory of President McKinley at Washington has excited a great deal of Interest among members of the National Sculpture Society. F. Wellington Ruckstuhl, member of the council, who was secretary of the special committee of the members who contributed their services to the Dewey triumphal arch, told a Tribune reporter yesterday that the proposition struck him favorably, and the only question, so far as he was concerned. In regard to the arch was the size of it. A small arch would not be a sufQcently im posing ornament for Washington, and an arch imposing enough would cost a great amount of money. Mr. Ruckstuhl went on to say. President McKinley, however, stands ao much for American manhood that his loy alty to his wife and his friends, his devo tion to country and his democratic simpli city In the White House have created a sort of hero worship, which will almost certainly guarantee the raising of the nec essary amount of money if the movement Is pushed. , _ .. There is a migniflcent place In Washing ton, if the arch la to be put there, which would complete a landscape second to none In the world. If you take a position at the rear of the Capitol and look down to ward the Potomac you have before you. first, the Capitol Park, then the gardens of the Smithsonian Park, and then, in the distant view, you have the Washington obelisk. Now. an avenue could easily be cut through from the Capttol to the obel isk and pass the obelisk to the Potomac, and the McKinley arch made to span thtg avenue either between the obelisk and the Capitol at some point or between the obel isk and the Potomac river. If that were done Washington would certainly have the grandest combination of civic monument* of any city in the world. This project will enlist the sympathy of the sculptors of the United 8tatee as few things could. That we are able to design a magnificent arch is proved by the fact that the opinion has gradually gained ground that the Dewey arch, although has tily designed, was second to none In the world as regards beauty. As to the amount of money required for the proposed McKinley arch?that Is a question of material. To put up an arch of sufficient size in Washington to do credit to the city and the sentiment which called It Into being would cost in the neighborhood of from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000. Of course, an arch about the size of the Dewey arch, without the magnlflcient columnar ap proaches on both sides could be put up for between $800,000 and $1,000,000. The Dewey arch however, was found to be somewhat too amaU. and would have been made larger If the money had been raised. Personally. I am most heartily In favor of erecting an arch to President McKinley at Washington, as there is no arch there, and nearly every important city In the world possesses one or more. Washington has been rightly called the city of magnlfl clent distances, and the streets are so long and generally so straight that for an arch to be effective It would necessarily have to be a large one. ?? e?
