changed none nf the details. It was a
simple ceremony. . Kxc,ept for the presence
oftmahy of fbe'most distinguished men In

have been the last words said over any
one of a hundred tho'uni;d men. so far as

It r.as Just eight minutes beforo the open
ing of the service,- when a covered barouche
drove up to the house, bringing President
Roosevelt and Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox, at
whose home he ti a guest.
The President looked very grave, as he
alighted and turned lo assist Mrs. Wilcox
from, the carriage. His face did not relax
Into a smile 'to the salutations ot those
nearest the .carriage, but he acknowledged
the greetings silently and wllh an inclina

the encircling gloom;
am far from home;
and those waiting to gain entrance fell
hack, making a narrow lane, through which
Mr. Roosevelt passed along to (he house.
As the President passed within the house
and the servltes were about lo begin, the
long line of soldiers and sailors swung in
columns or fours into Delaware avenue and
formed In battalion front along the heatitl
rul thoroughfare, opposite the hone and Im
mediately racing II. On Ihe extreme left
were the regulars, on the right the sailors
and marines. In the center the national
guardsmen. Thry stood at pirade rest with
colors lowered, each flag wound about II?
staff and hound with rrpiio. Thn frnm of
'the house and (lie lawns had been cleared
by this time, and Ihe sweep ot the avenue
was now deserted save for the rigid, mo
tionless ranks, acrofs from the house.
Lifelike in Ileal h.
Within the house of death was woe un
speakable. In the drawing-room to tho
right of the hall, as President Roosevelt en
tered, the dead chieftain was stretched up
on his bier. Ills head was to the rising sun.
On his face was written the story-of the
Christian forbearance with which h had
met his martrydom. Only the thinness of
his face bore mute testimony to the' pa
tient suffering he had endured. He was
uresscu as no always was In lire. The
black fro-k coal was buttoned across Ihe
breast, where Ihe first bullet of the assassin
had struck.-- The black string tio below the
standing collar, showed the little triangle of
shirt front. The right hand lay at hlaslde.

He looked as millions of his countrymen
have seen him, save for ono thing. Tlic lit
tle badge of the Loyal Legion, tho only dec
oration he ever wore, which was always lu
the left lapel ot his coat, was missing. And
those who remarked It,, spoke of It and

The body lay In a black casket on a black
brarsk n rug. Over the lower limbs was
flung the slnrry banner lie had loved o
well. The flower.1 were few. an befitted the
simple nature of the man. A spray of white
chrysanthemum-. H flaming-'bunch of blocd
red American Beauty rO.-cs anil a magnm
cent bunch of violets were on the casket.
That was all. Behind the' head against a
pier mirror between the two curtained win
dows rested two super!) wreaths of white
asters and roses. These were the onlv
flowers .In the room. Two-sentries", ono from
the- sea and one from the land, guarded
the remains. They stood M the window
embrasures behind the head ot Ihe casket.
The one to the north 'was a sergeant ot
Inrantry. In Ihe other window was the
sailor garbed in the loose blue blouse 'of the
Mr. McKinlcj With Jler Ucml.
The family had taken leave of their
loved one befcre the others arrived. Mrs.
MeKinley, the poor, grief-crushed widow,
had been led into the chamber by her phv
slelan, Doctor Rixey, anj hat, sat aw.n,'e
alone with him who had supported and
cocrt-, hcr thr"Sh all their years or
wedded life. But though her support was
gone, she had not broken down. Dry-eyed,
she gazed upon hi.m and Tondled his face. She
did not seem to realize that he was dead.
Then she-was led'away by Doctor Rlxey
and took up her position at the. head of

Si. Petersburg. Sept.-ir.. Tile all-absorbing
topic In St. Petersburg to-.day was the death
of President McKlnlcy. The tone of Uik
press was uniformly sympathetic with the
American people Jn thelr-bercavement and
uniformly just'. fn estimating McKiniey's
character. The.XovoefVremya says:
"He was a man uf" large talents and a
beloved son of the country for whose wel
fare he unceasingly and successfully la
bored." Swift says: "Let us hope that the death
nf the talented and energetic President will
aiouse the lands, which, for the sake of
freedom of conscience 'and: thought, harbor

for plot and action .against the enemies of

Uerlln, Sept. 35. The.1 service of mourning
for the death ot President McKluley. lield
this morning in the American Church in
Berlin, was very Impressive. The edifice
w'as heavily hung with crape and crowded
with Germuns, British and Americans-.
Among those who attended were: Raron von
iilehthofen, Germany Minister of Foreign
Affairs; Mr. While, the- United States Am
bassador; Mr. .Tackso.li. secretary of the
United States Kmbass'j;; Mr. Mason, United
Slates Consul General in Berlin: members
of the family of Commander Boehler,- the
United. States naval attache, and many Ger-
Tc-day's papers tre?t Of the death of
President McKlnley, the anarchist danger
and political' outlook under "Mr. Roosevelt.
The Krctizc Zeitung -describes h'lm as
anti-German in his' sympathies, but other
wise gives him credit...
The Neuste Noehriciuen says: it is- sen-
evident that the German press of all par
ties, except the Socialist, expresses sincere
sympathy, in the death of President- Mc
Kinley. One paper points out that Mr. Roosevelt

Is Expected to Ac(.oiiikiiiv Funeriil
Train to Washington.
Buffalo. Sept. 15. It was definitely learned
at half past It o'clock, to-night that unless
Mrs. McKlnlcy suffers a collapse between
now and to-morrow morning she will ac
company the funeral train to Washington.
She will bo taken from the Mllburn house
to the station In, a closed carriage. Mrs.
McKlnley retired early this evening, and at
11 o'clock. Secretary Cortelyeu said, was
sleeping quietly.
Doctor Rixey Is attending her constantly,
and his belief now is that she will be able
to stand the. journey lo Washington to
morrow without serloii3 ill effect.
If was reported this evening that she had
grown ivcry ill and had demanded that her
husband's body be brought back to her for
the night, arter being viewed nt the City
.Hall, but both these reports wcre denied by
Secretary Coit'eiyou.

Buffalo. N. V.. Sept. 13.-Wbile. Buffalo
and its tons of thousands of visitors have
been reverently filing past the dead Prei
dentV bier, the new President, with brave
and lesolute face, surrounded by serious-
minded counsellors, has been looking- ahead
in the future and making plans for the
;.ublie good.
Then- is no wavering about Theodore
Roosevelt. He. Pees his work before lilm
und i- preparing to do it. He Is preparing,
like a man who. ha had a great charge1
left to his 'keeping by another. He is pre
paring as a son would go about fulfilling
the last -serious request of a dying purent.
He Is doing it reverently, without pride, im
pressed with the tremendous responsibili
ties, yet courageous withal.
His declaration, which thrilled an all-too-panlcky
country yesterday, that he would
carry out the policy ot President McKlnley,
Is the only public utterance that he will
make at this time. That utterance has won
for Mr. Roosevelt golden praise from all
parts of the country to-day. What to-morrow-
may bring forth in Wall street no one
knows, but if confidence Is not restored It
will not be Theodore Roosevelt's 'fuult.
He. mean.-, absolutely what he says. No'
man has a. livelier sense of public obliga
tion, and the rights ot vested capital; and
no man In public life Is more anxious that
the coarse of 'business prosperity should
continue. .
President Roosevelt la not antagonistic to
Wall street, although certain elements in
Wall street have been bitterly antagonistic
to and distrustful of him. He has never
dreamed of making war on the great ma
nipulators of the stock market or the crea
tures of those vast aggregations of capital;
yet some of these gentlemen thought it a
very tine thing to make him Vice President
In order "to end tils political career. Presi
dent Roosevelt will not carry. Into the pres
idency any personal or political resent
ment. The exploit ot shelving Roosevelt
has terminated in the elevation of him"
Well and good. Roosevelt i3 willing to cull
all things square and begin over again.
The statement the new President made
just before he took the oath was no hasty.
Impulsive remark. Jt had been carefully
considered. It was made after due thought
and consultation. The President really
meant It as a tribute to President MeKinley
and as an acknowledgment ot the wislom
ot the policy that MeKinley had started.
He felt that he had really been called to
complete the work that the nssassln's bul
let had rut short.
Some of his Tricnds had already called to
his attention the wisdom of making some
such declaration, and one man at least had
traveled COO miles in order to ask the Pres
ident to make a statement that he would
adopt rathe-- than upset McKlnley's policy,
the same lo be published on Monday morn
ing. When ho opened the morning papers
this morning he declared that he had been
anticipated and expresses great delight. .
When the new President returned rrom
ihe ceremonies ot the removal or Presi
dent McKlnley's body to the lying-in-state
In the City Hall licwas joined at the house
ot .Mr. Ansley Wilcox by Secretary ot -War,
Root and Attorney General Jmiox. tic liaa
a long consultation-with these gentlemen,
both ot whom arc not only eminent law
yers; but possessed of n large degree of
common sense. The subject of this conver
sation was not made public, but It Is known
thnt there Is st .very strong wish on the part
of Roosevelt's friends that he should In
duce Attorney General Knox to remain In
tlic Cabinet permanently.
Mr. Knox entered the Cabinet at the car
nest request of President MeKinley. -His
private affairs are In such condition that It
Is not ne-cessary for him to resume the prnc
tlc3 of. law, and since he ha9 found his way
clear lo become Attorney General ho one
would bo surprised If he should remain in
the Cabinet until the end of the present
As to Mr. Root's remaining in the Cabi
net there Is believed to he no question. Ho
and Mr. Roosevelt are friends of long stand
ing. They have been through so much to
gether and know each other so well that It
Is pretty certain that Mr. Root will remain
unless ill health some time in the future
should compel him to quit.
MR. ROOT wu.i. rnonAUi.v
At tlu present time public men can ,see
.nothing but Root for Secretary ot State.
They would all like to see Mr. Hay remain.
Indeed, Mr. Hay has been invited to re
main, yet the understanding here is that
tho present Secretary' of State will retire
when hdcan do so without embarrassment.
While it is understood that Senator Lodge
is likely to receive an offer" ot the portfolio
of State. .It Is quite likely that he will de
cline. W'lth Roosevelt as President the
position cf Senator Lodge in the Senate
w-ili be that ot spokesman and personal
representative- of the administration. This
Is a porition that will certainly be much
to Senator Ijdge's liking. He will probn
'111? also be chairman of the Committee on
Foreign Relations, and this would com
mand Influence and respect second to .none"
In the Senate, with the exception ot Sena-tor-Frye,

It Is. also-said" now'that an efTort Is being,
