Chief of Police Patrick Brown of Bfcrre, Vt., called upon Superintendent Bull of the Buffalo police department yesterday and talked with him relative to the trouble with the anarchists in Barre last Decem ber, when Chief Brown was shot In the ab domen, supposedly by anarchists. The Barre chief showed Superintendent Bull a copy of an anonymous communication said to have been received by a Barre police of ficial. and supposed to have been written by one anarchist to another setting forth a plot against the life of President McKin ley. Brown also informed Superintendent Bull that two years ago Emma Goldman stirred up the Italian anarchists of Ba-re with inflammatory speeches, Presidents Who Bused Away While Serving the People. 10 ASSASSINATION IN EARLY DAI8 ? Close of the tjves of Generals j* v Harrison and Taylor. INCIDENTS RECALLED The death of a President of the United States by the hand of an assassin was an event never dreamed of by our fore fathers, in the early days of the republic. No matter how bitter the campaigns, when the choice of the people assumed the reins of office all bowed to the verdict given at the polls and the incumbent was recognized by all as the chief magistrate. Indeed, nearly forty years had passed before a hand was raised against a President, and then It proved to have been the act of an insane man, his insanity being accelerated by the effects of whisky. The simplicity and beauty of our insti tutions then shone forth, for Presidents and other dignitaries'walked in and out among the people, the positions held in suring them respect and immunity, and not until the assassination of Mr. Lincoln In 18?J5 was there a death by violence of a President of the United States. The Presidents, however, were not exempt from death by natural causes during their terms of office, but the dread monster did not display its hand until April 4, 1841, when it took away the ninth President Gen. William Henry Harrison?the hero of Tippecanoe and grandfather of the late ex President Benjamin Harrison. Gen. Har rison had arrived in the city a few weeks before the 4th of March and was kept busy in receiving the hospitalities and applause of the people. Before three weeks passed he was taken with a severe cold, which, it is believed, he contracted when he walked in a procession escorting him on his ar rival here in February. Many, however, believed worry had much to do with ac celerating the disease, for words spoken in his delirium indicated that he was greatly exercised over the patronage at his dis posal, and the petitions for appointment to and retention in office. lint One Month After Inauguration. Whatever may have been the origin of his cold, it grew worse, and when. March 27, he suffered a severe chill, his family and friends became apprehensive. A fever followed, and bilious pleurisy set in, which terminated his life in just one month after the inauguration. He died in a delirium, it is said, evidently believing that he was ad dressing his successor, Mr. Tyler. His words were: "Sir, I wish you to understand the prin ciples of the government. I wish them car ried out. I ask nothing more." His death had been fearpd by the public several days before it occurred, but when it was announced it was haul to believe, for it seemed but the day before that he was the central figure amid the ceremonies at tending the seating of a President. Mrs. Harrison had, not vet left Indiana when the death occurred*, Mrs. William Harrison, the widowed daughter-in-law; Miss Clark of Baltimore Mrs. Findl iy, Mrs. Taylor of Richffiond/T). O. Copeland, his nephew; Henry Harrison, a grand nephew, and Findlay Harrison, a grand son, with his rector, Rev. Dr. William Hawley, were present when he expired. There were also in t(he house the members of the cabinet, iMnlel jWebster, Thos. Ewing, John Bell, George "Badger, Francis Granger and John J. Crittenden, and a number of other friends. An official annouftcemetjt was at once prepared by the cabinet announcing the melancholy event, and Mr. Webster's son Fletcher was dispatched for Mr. Tyler, the Vice President, then at his home in Vir ginia. ToIIIuk o/ tlie Bell*. The solemn tolling of the bells of the city in the early hours of Sunday morning an nounced the event and the melancholy tidings were spread by the then slow modes of communication, while preparations were made for the funeral to take place the fol lowing Wednesday. Mr. Tyler arrived from his Virginia home on Tuesday morning following the death of his chief, and the cabinet called upon him and were requested to retain their positions. He then took the oath of office. Indian Queen Hotel (Brown's), now the Metropolitan, and at noon that day was waited on by the cabinet. When officially i informed of the sad event. Mr. Tyler ex ! pressed some doubts as to the necessity for i trsking the oath, but subscribed to it before I Chief Justice Wm. Cranch of the Circuit Court of the District. The Jurat of the latter set forth that Mr. Tyler deemed him self qualified to perform the duties of President without taking any other oath than he had taken as Vice President, but "as some doubts may arise and for greater caution" he subscribed to it. The preparations for the funeral were made, flags at half-mast and emblems of mourning being displayed everywhere. The body was laid out in a coffin covered with black velvet, trimmed with gold lace. On It rested two swords emblematic of justice and state, and the scroll of the Con stitution bound by a wreath of yew and cypress. It was laid on a catafalque in the east room, which had so shortly before been the scene of the largest reception given at the White House up to that time. The people were admitted and hundreds passed and viewed the remains before the services. | When the services were held, Rev. Dr. Hawley officiating, there were present John Quincy Adams, who had served as Presi dent twelve years before; the new Presi dent, Mr. Tyler; the members of the cabi net, the diplomatic corps and many distin guished people, besides the family and rel atives and personal friends, the room be ing well filled. | During the services the funeral escort was being formed outside under Major General Alex. Macomb. It is noted that General Macomb was the subject of the next military funeral in Washington, his death occurring but a few months there after. I The funeral car which bore the body of the President was drawn by six white horses, each led by a colored groom at tired In white, with turban and sash of the same color, and following It was the general's white charger, with boots re versed in the stirrups, led by a groom. I Eneort of Citizen Soldiery. There were few government troops In this vicinity at tfye time and the escort was mainly the citizen soldiery of three cities of the District?Washington, George town and Alexandria. The government was represented by the marines, with their band, and the light battery of artillery of Capt. Ringgold from Fort McHenry. Be sides the District companies there were I seven volunteer companies from Baltimore I and one each from ? Annapolis, Md., and York, Pa. There were in lipe a few of the soldiers of *he revolution and the war of 1812 and many who had engaged in the In dian war. The civic ttrocesfeion Included the corporate authorities of the then District I cities, the Odd Fellows, all the old volun I teer fire companies and many other so I cletles. fj S | The funeral moved down Pennsylvania avenue, where ther# w^% many habili ments of sorrow, flags befrifg at half mast. The destination was tbi Congressional cemetery, where the interment was made with the usual military honors. The re mains were removed a few months there after, and by a singular coincidence were en route to North Bend, Ohio, when the interment of General Macomb took place. I Gen. Taylor's Death. j The next President to die in harness was Gen. Zachary Taylor, who died July ?, 1850. "Old Rough and Ready," as he was I railed, had been inaugurated March 4, 1840, and on the 4th of July preceding his death had attended a celebration at the Wash ington Monument. On returning to the White House he enjoyed a hearty dinner, but subsequently complained of feeling ill. The 4th was an excessively hot day, and in going to the monument and returning heme, in acknowledgment of the plaudits J of the public, he took ofT his hat and suf I fered the cfr'ccts of the cim. I His ailment, ch&I ra morbus, at first I blended with remittent fever, and there were symptoms of typhoid. The disease progressed rapidly, and soon his condition became alarming. At his bedside almost continually were his wife and daughter, Mrs. Col. W W. Bliss, familiarly Known as "Miss Betty." Some of the members of the cabinet were also In constant attend ance." The cabinet consisted of Messrs. John M. Clayton, Secretary of State; w. M. Meredith. Secretary of the Treasury: G. W. Crawford, the Secretary of war; W. P. Preston, Secretary of the Navy; Thos. Ewlng, Secretary of the Interior; Reverdy Johnson, Attorney General, and Jacob Collamer, Postmaster General. As the end approached Mrs. Taylor sat at the bedside and the dying man, clasping her hand, said: "1 am not afraid to die; I have done my duty," and she realized *hal she was about to witness his separation from earth. Mrs. Taylor was for the time being unconscious. Mrs. Bliss, mourning her father's death, then little thought that In a few months she would also be a widow. The end came at 10:30 o'clock Sunday, July 9, and soon the bells were tolling, con veying the sad tidings to the public. gress was in session at the time, and for the season there was a large number of< strangers in the city, many attracted by the debate on the Missouri compromise. General Scott, who had succeeded General Macomb In the command of the army, was summoned to command the funeral escort. As It was intended that the remains would be finally burled near his home, the Presi dent's coffin was of lead, incased in ma hogany, with silver plate and trimmings. The old hero rested in it upon a catafalque of black velvet, trimmed with white satin and silver lace, placed in the center of the east room. This was open to the public, and thousands viewed the placid features before the funeral. Rev. Smltn Pyne, the rector of St. John's Church, officiated at the funeral, July 13. In addition to reading the Episcopal burial service, he pr?ached a sermon. There were present the members of the cabinet and the principal officers of the government, the members of the Senate and House, and of the diplomatic corps, and at the conclusion of the services the attendants followed the body and the family and relatives to the Congressional cemetery, where it was placed in a vault. Body Borne on Funeral Car. The body was borne on a* funeral car dra^rn by eight white horses, each led by a negro groom attired in oriental costume. The platform was covered with black cloth and over the coffin was a canopy of black silk surmounted by a gilt eagle, draped. After "it came "Old Whitey," the horse which had borne Gen. Taylor in Mexico, fully caparisoned, with the boots reversed in the stirrups. The animal was. led by two soldiers, one a veteran of the Florida war and Jthe other of the Mexican war. The military preceded the funeral car and following came the mourners?the rela tives and members of the cabinet. This was the largest funeral ever witnessed here and was notable for the many prominent persons taking part, in addition to the rep resentations from other places. The pa geant included the volunteer companies of th'e three District cities and no less than thirteen companies from Baltimore and one each from Catonsville, Md.; Wil mington, Del.; Richmond, Va., and York, Pa. The government troops consisted of two companies of marines with band, four companies of artillery as infantry and Ma jor Sedgwick's Light Battery from Fort MoHenry. Slowly, with mournful music and revers ed arms, the procession traversed the ave nue to the cemetery, while the bells on churches and engine houses tolled. Reach ing the cemetery, the military took posi tion in E street, the Light Battery to the commons north, and at the conclusion of the services at the vault salutes were fired by artillery and infantry. The deaths of Generals W. H. Harrison and Zachary Taylor wvre the only ones from natural causes of Presidents during their terms of office, and not until 1K?J5, when Lincoln was assassinated, was there an attempt on the life of the executive other than that made by an intoxicated lunatic noted above. McKINLEY LOVED THE SOI TH. Senator McLanrln Tell? of an Inter view With Late President. In a letter to the Manufacturers' Record of Baltimore United States Senator J. L. McLaurln of South Carolina tells of an Interview he had with President McKinley one day during the early days of the Span ish war "The President," says Senator McLaurln, "spoke beautifully and tenderly of the southern people, and of how he Intended to use the power and inliuence of his great office to reunite our country. "I can recall the words, but who can paint the earnestness and eloquence, as, raising one hand on high, he said: 'Senator, by the help of God, I propose to be the President of the whole country, the south as much as the north, and before the end of my term the south will understand this." "No wonder, as a true southern man, I loved and trusted President McKinley. I stood by him in the Senate and elsewhere, and I thank God that I did. "Patriotic in purpose and pure in heart, his noble soul Is now with Him whom the hate of man nailed to the cross. Like Lin coln, who saved the country, McKinley, who reunited it, dies a martyr to envy and hate." AS TO POISONED BILLETS. Experiment* Show That Infection May Be Carried by Ordinury Ones. From the New York Sun. In discussing the question whether or not the bullets used by the assassin Czolgosz were poisoned Dr. Nathan T. Beers, Jr., of Brooklyn yesterday recalled an interesting experience made by army surgeons and bacteriologists to determine the chances of a bullet carrying infection. ' "The bacillus prodiglosus," he said, "was chosen for the experiment because of its singular chromogenic power. This prac tically harmless germ, when Inoculated upon a piece of boiled potato and allowed to stand in a moderate temperature for a day. had shown its presence by a bright red spot. "For the purpose of the bullet test a flat tin can was filled with cooked mashed potatoes and placed behind a piece of army blanket which had been saturated with a pure culture of the germ. Then a marks man fired through the blanket into the can, using both high and low speed fire arms. Before the test, the tin can, the rifle and the ammunition were thoroughly cleansed and disinfected. "The idea was that a bullet passing through the blanket would be coated with a culture of the germ and even through the amount retained on the bullet's sur face was lnfinlteslmally small It would be sufficient to start a colony In the potato. "After the shooting the can of potato was placed in an lncubat,or and left long enough for the germ to develop. The re sults shown were all of the low velocity bullets?such as were fired at President McKinley?had become Infected In their passage through the blanket and their track in the potato was finely delineated by a red growth. "The tracks left by the high velocity bullets fired from the Krag-Jorgensen, the Martini-Henry and the Mauser rifles were clean and uncolored. This showed con clusively that with the high velocity arms tjie flight of ti e bullets, more than 2,00.) feet a second, was so rapid that enough heat was generated by the air friction on the surface of the bullet to burn off any bacteria that lodged on It. This also ex plains, incldentlally, how so many of our soldiers In the Spanish war recovered from wounds made by the bullets from the high velocity Mauser rifles, which, had they been fired from the old-fashioned rifles used In the rebellion, would have carried death from infection. "Before taking It for granted that Czol gosz used poisoned bullets consideration must be given to the fact that germs ex isted In both the President's clothing and the waterproofing grease of the cartridge. An expert bacteriological examination is necessary to determine whether there was present some virulent germ which could not have existed naturally In the grease of the cloth."' Anarchists Threaten Got. Voorhee*. A dispatch from Trenton, N. J., last night says: Gov. Voorhecs today received a postal card, postmarked Hoboken, N. J., which read as follows: "You want to keep quiet and keep your detectives away from here, or you will get what McKinley got. We are looking for your kind." The card bore no signature. It is thought that it came from anarehlsts at Hoboken, as state de tectives and secret service men have been keeping a close watch on them since the shooting of President McKinley.

" EMBALMER BLAMES DOCTORS For HIh Failure to Preaerve the Prnt< dent's Remain*. A dispatch from Canton, Ohio, last night, says: Among those at the court house to day, while the body of the late President lay in state, was the funeral director of Buffalo who embalmed the body and cam? on here to transfer his duties to the local funeral director. He had received a dis patch from his business assistant at Buf falo, saying that some comment was being made concerning the haste with which the casket was closed, owing to the condition of the embalming. He stated, however, that the condition of the remains after the autopsy made it impossible to properly per form the usual offices of embalming, and he asked, in justice to himself and his as sociates, that this fact be stated on his authority. The signs of discoloration which appeared upon the brow and cheeks of the dead President yesterday at the state ceremonial in the rotunda of the Capitol at Washing ton had deepened today. The*lips had be come livid, and every one who viewed the remains today remarked the darkened fea tures and the ghastly lips. Nothing better for Insomnia than Bcpai HMdacba Tablets. 4 flow, 10c.
