To accomplish this Is now the aim of
her attendants-
Shortly after noon today Mrs. Mc
Kin.sy expressed a desire to be taken
tr the cemetery. This request was
readily acceded to by Dr. Rixey who.
with an attendant, escorted her to a
closed carriage. They were accom
panied by Mrs. Barber.
At the cemetery the crowd which
uulckly gathered about the carriage,
was dispersed by the soldiers on duty,
and Mrs. McKinley was driven over the
lawn directly in front of the vault. The
military guard gav; a to: mal saluta.
When she saw the beautiful array of
flora pieces Mrs. McKinley expressed
rra till cat ion. but was apprehensive lest
injury be done to hsr husband's body.
The mi liary guard will be maintained
ninety days, at the expiration of which
time the body will be placed la a valut
and locked up.

President Roosevelt left the While
House to go to the residence? of his si?,
ter, the wife of Commander Cowles, for
luncheon. Disdaining a carriage. - he
walked swiftly and alone. No one ha I
known when he would leave, and as he
walked briskly out of the grounds i f
the executive mansion he attracted lit

and a half he returned to the . White
House alone and still walking. .

Portland! Ore.. Sept. 20. The de
mand for laborers all over the north
west indicates a very prosperous con

hep farmers offered record-breaking
prices for labor and had difficulty even
then in getting enough to pick the crop,
while the salmon canners have found it
impossible to secure men in sufficient
numb-rs to handle' the unprecedently
large run of salmon. The rai'roads are
also experiencing difficulty in securing
sufficient labor to push, the new con
struction work.

Prisoners Arrested in Transition Period
Possibly May Go Fr.-e.
Honolulu, Sept.' 20. The supreme
court of Hawaii has Just deciled In fa
vor of the validity of the income tax,
and also that convictions during the
transition period without grand Jury
indictments or unanimous Jury ver3ict3
were legal and constitutional., and it
has thereby thrown the courts in chaos
for a second time. It had been neld by
the circuit court that there was no
right to appeal in habeas corpus, and
also that the constitution was in force
In the Hawaiian Islands upon the pas
sage of the Newiands iesoiution.
The supreme court now holds that
the circuit urt is wrong and that the
laws of the Hawaiian republic were in
force until the passage of the organic
act in June, 1900. A new move has al
ready been made by the attorneys for
the prisoners illegally convicted during
the two years of l:ansttton period, and
a writ has been apllled for before Fed
eral Judge Estee. who will now take up
rhe whole question as to the consti
tutionality of the convictions during
the transition period.
The hearing of these new habeas cor
pur cases has been set for September
12. and If the federal court holds that
the prisoners were deprived of their
liberty contrary to law, there can be
no rearrest, as the supreme court in
its decision states that the prisoners
have once bden placed in Jeopardy.
An appeal is likely in the Income tax
case, probably to the ninth court of ap
peals, at San .Francisco. It was the
general expectation here that the law
would not be sustained, and it had
neve-r been taken Eerlously. In every
case there was a dissenting opinion.
The Constitution Went As Far As
Honolulu, Sept. 13. United States
Judge Estee has decided that the con
stitution of the United States was ex
tended to the Hawaaian islands by the
Newlnnria rpwrlurlnn sustaining the de-
I cision of Circuit Judge Gear and re
I versing the supreme eourt of Hawaii.
' The decision was rendered- in the case
of a Japanese convicted of manslaugh
ter without Indictment of the grand
Jury' and on a verdict of nine trial Ju
rors. An appeal from Estee's decision
will be taken to the United States su-
preme court
Predictions of the Politicians
Game to Naught
An Elaborate List Prepared From
Which the President Was Ex
pected to Hake Up a New
. Cabinet.
Washington. Sept. 20. The President
is dead ani buried, but the government
still lives, wi'.h a new executive of
manly vigor and typical American
With Theodore Roosevelt as president
there will be no change in the policy
of the government, the president him
self having made this announcement.
The republican administration will con
tinue along the same lines in which it
has run for the last four years and
eight months, bringing unparalleled
prosperity to the country. It was Mr.
Roosevelt who in the campaign of a
year ago gave the most emphatic and
direct pledge to the people as to trrc
policies of the Mi-Kinley administra
tion While President McKinley, fol
lowing the traditions of his office1, re
mained silent after his letter of accept
ance, the candidate for vice presiient
was put forward to speak for the party
for which he stood as the representa
tive. , There is, therefore, no eiuestion
89 to the continuation of the present
:epub'ican. policies.
Now that the president has requested
the members of the cabinet to remain
with him to the end ol his term and
that they have consented, the earlier
prognostications of politicians bscome
Interesting as showing how little was
known In inner circles ef President
Roosevelt's purpose.
The change-whkh It was predicted
would come to the government with the
chang of the official head would be
merely In the personnel of the official
stun. These officials are only the per
sonal representatives of the president
In c-ontio' of the various departments of
government and his personal advisors
In regard to the plans ad po'iclesof his
administration. The traditions of the
office leave no question as to the per
sonal selection of the cabinet by th?
president without dictation from any
So Ji'alou.sly has this right of the pres
ident been guarded that the senate has
rarely raised a question as to the wis
dom of the selections. Ths appoint
ments of cabinet officers have as a rule
been confirmed without question. This
was fittingly demonstrated when Pres
ident McKinley nominated hij first
cabinet and named fjr secretary of the
treasury a man who had never been
identified with iiis p.rty. cud in uiroiii
few republican senators had any con
fidence. But no question was raised,
an-i the- nomination of Secretary Gage
was unanimously confirmed by the
same vote as that of John Sherman,
the most distinguished veteran of the
republican party, as secretary of state.
The same unquestioned right to the
personal selection of his cabinet was
conceded to President Rousev?lt..aid
the, first official act of each and every
member of the McKinley cabinet was
expected to be to present his rtsigna
tion to the new executive. The pres
ident forestalled this action if any
member of the cabinet had it In mind
by a wholesale reappointment.
There was much speculation as to
what republicans Mr. Roosevelt would
call to his cabinet in the event r the
death of President McKin'ey. It was
doubtful if Mr. Roosevelt had given a
thought to this question, so anxious
had he been for President MeKinley's
complete recovery and so grieved over
the terrible calamity that' had come to
the American people. But th2 ques
tion. It was though:, would be forced
upon him by the exigencies of the case.
He Is president and as the head .of the
government responsible for every act
of that government. He must have
about him advisors in whom he has
perfect f-onfulence as to their Judgment.
He would call about him such men, but
In daing this he would no doubt consult
the party leaders with the purpose of
meeting best the great questions that
must be decided in the next four years.
John Hay, the present secretary of
stats is a man In whom President
Roosevelt has the greatest confidence
as to foreign questions, but Mr. Hay
was known to have :ittle ;ove for public
life, and would consent to remain only
as a public duty. But there is a strong
reason why the nsw president should
select for his secretary of state a man
In whom he has absolute confidence,
not only as to his knowledge and wis
dom regarding foreign affairs, but one
whom he would be wil ing to entrust
with all the affairs of his administra
tion. By the new law of succession the
secretary of state would be the first
man in the line of succession in case
the vice president should die. P.eal
df nt Roosevelt would be forced to con
sider thl3 question and select for secre
tary of state a man whom he would re
gard as best fitted to assume the re
sponsibilities of the executive office In
rase of his death.
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Mas
sachusetts was regarded as the closest
political advisor of the new president,
and while h? Is known to have ambi
tions outside the cabinet he might be
the president's choice for secretary of
state. Should the president go. west
. for his secretary of state. Senator
Spooner the defender of the expansion
policy, and -an authority on Inter
national law, was expected to be sel
ected. There has been for some months a
determined effort on the part cf leading
rpnilhllpnn. tr hflv frirnplliia RIIb. ,r

treasury in th? event President Mc
Kinley decided to make a change in the

' tary of the treasury should b? selected
from that state whose metropolis is re
garded as the financial center of the
country, though it has been the policy
of most republican presidents to go
west for a secretary of the treasury
that there might be no suspicion of the
influence of Wall street. But Cornel
ius Bliss would! satisfy the New York
financial influence and also the western
republicans. particularly thos-? who
were' nearest to President McKinley.
Serrater Hanna sought to have Mr. Mc
Kinley substitute Bliss for Gage at the
beginning of his second administration,
and many other western re-publicans
were Idem lilt .1 with this effort.
In the event that the secretary of the
treasury should be taken fr.uu N-w
Vni k. the next cabinet position, thai .f
secretary or war, would go to the west.
Secretary' Root has carried a tremen
dous load in. that orllce and has im
paired his health eo much that h? has
been warned by his physicians to light
en his work. He would have lelt the
office with little regret. It would have
been difficult to find a man who com
bines the knowledge of law ani the
executive ability of Secretary Root, but
two western men were mentioned. One
of these was Wi'liam H. Taft, present
governor of the Phi'lppines. Governor
Taft Is one of the great lawyers of the
country and) his two years' experience
In the Philippines has made him fam
iliar with the most difficult problems
before the war department.

He has b en mentioned as a possible
candidate for president in 1M04. and in
tho cabinet he wnul t hold his state In
line for the renomlnntfnn f Mr rt.in-.
veil. General MacArthur was also J
suggested for secr-tary of war because I
of his faml'larity with the Philippines
question and the ability he displayed
as governor general. General James
H. Wilson of Delaware was mention d
Should Secretary Long retire from
the office of secretary of the navy, in
connection with that place the name of
ex-Senator Chandler of New Hamp
shire, who was secretary of the navy
under Peresident' Arthur, was sug
gested. Chandler has always been a
great friend of the navy and a detr
mtned fighter for Its interests while In
the senate.
It was regarded as probable that
Pennsylvania wouM furnish the attor
ney general in the new cabinet, and he j
mlejht be the present incumbent, Mr.
Knox, or some other man acceptable to -Senator
CJi-y. The most Intimate j
friends of Iresldent Roosevelt hn 1 j
formed, a high opinion of the ability of
Mr. Richards, the present assistant at

Richards could not have been selecteJ '
If Governor Taft had become secretary
of war, beeausa that would have given
the Buckeye state two cabinet posi- i
lions. I
For postmaster general the name of
Henry C Payne of Wisconsin was sug
gested. Mr. Roosevelt has a high opin
ion of Mr. Payne, and he coul.J do what
President McKinley desired to do !ast
spring, but .could not because he nlJ
not wish to drop Charles Emory Smith.
For secretary cf the interinr tn name
of cx-Wnator Waicott at Colorado was
mentioned. The two men are great
friends. The selection of Mr. Wolcott
would be a recognition of the far west,
and also the country from which came
the Rough Riders. No other man was
suggested for secretary of agriculture
than the present Incumbent, James
Wilson of Iowa who represents the
great agricultural section of the coun
try and Js thoroughly informed as to
Its needs.
Arthur Aepli the Victim of a Kero
sene Oil Explosion-
Arthur Aepli, the eleven year oil
son of Mr. and Mrs. P. Aepli was burn
ed to death about 5 o'clock yesterday
afternoon by the explosion of a can of
kerosene. i
Th? tragic affair occurred in the renr
of the fruit packing establishment con
ducted by his father at the corner of
Washington and Fourth streets. Tho
boy, who had worked there all summer
with his father was a "bright little fellow
and has frequently been left in charge
of the place for hours while his father
was out on business. He had Just re
turned from school, and Mr. Aepli jtold
him to stay there while he went to sup
per, and! to employ himself manwniie
in sorting- fruit. In the rear of the
building Is a nest of ants that have
been a source of annoyance all summer
and the boy thought he would Just tak
time enough from his work to exter
minate them: so he got a small can of
kerosene, and- after pouring some of the
oil la the ant hole he touch-d a matc.t
to it. He either held the oil can ! his
hand during the operation or had It set
down close by, the particulars beinsr
unobtainable, as the boy was alone. But
at any rate the can exploded and th?
oil, which was thrown all over the boy,
took fire, and soon enveloped him :n
flame. He ran. Into the store, where he
was -wrarped In grain sacks, the only
thing available to smother the flame,
b" a gentleman in the employ of Mr.
Aepli, Dr. Stroud was summoned' at
once and arrived almost before the fire
was extinguished. The little sufferer
was taken to the Sisters' hospital,
where- everything possible was done for
his relief. His legs anf arms are fear
fully burned, and so great a portion of
the surface of his -body was affected
that his recovery was hopeless. Death
occurred about half past ten, the litt'e
sufferer having lost consciousness two
hours before.
Mrs. Aepli was some distance in th?
country yesterday, and she was sent for
last evening. Arthur was a good boy
and is highly spoken of by tho3? who
knew him. No arrangements for the
funeral will be made until the mother

Reaching Out After
Mexican Trade
Permanent Display of American
Manufacturers Is to Be Main
tained at the City of Guada
lajara. .
St. Louis, Sept. 12. St. Louis enter
prise will shortly result In the estab
lishment of a permanent exhibit 'f
American manufactures in Mexico. Tbu
movement has -been in progress for
some time, -promoted by the Mexican
American Commercial Co. of this city
in con-Junction with the managers of its
branch offices at Monterey, the City of
Mexico an Guadalajara. -Mexlc-i.
'i neo. L. Helmers, vice president and
manager cf the Mexican-American
Commercial comiony, states that r.
building has been st-cured at Guadala
jara and prepared for this purpose, ani
that it will soon, be opened. Disputches
from Washington. D. C, lust montn
told of a movement then on foot in the
City of' Mexico to establish a perman
ent display of goods of American man
ufacturers, and at "the same- time to
place In at least one of the great cities
of the United States a permanent dis
play of Mexican products. It was said
that St. Louis would be selected as one
of two cities in which Mexican exhib
its would be made.
Manager Helmers of the company behind-
the permanent exposition at Gua
dalajara stated that his company had
for some time worked to establish a
similar institution in the City of Mex
ico, but 'progress w as so slew that the
promoters went to Guadalajara.
The main Idea In such an exhibit . t
American roods is to get some or th..
trade which is now controlled by Euro,
pean manufacture-res. The Latin-American
club and Foreign Trade associa
tion have already done much to develop
pleasant and profitable commercial re
lations between Mexico and this city.
Mr. Helmr says his company is a
member of the Latin-American clun.
with which it works in harmony. Th?
promoters are working on the theory
that a great deal of trade whie-h noxy
goes to Europe can be diverted to the
United States by keeping a permanent
flistplay of American made goods on ex
hibition, and this Is the object of the
exhibit, which is to be olllcialy known
as the Western Mexico Permanent ex
change. The exchange building is arranged !n
an arcade, with rows of rooms on eitn
er side of the hall extending the great,
est length of the building. It has been
remodeled especially for the exposition.
The building is ereerted centrally and
Is a substantial ornamental tire pr iof

36 rooms which open into the gallery
or veranda which surround:-the build
ing. Entrance to the main building is
by four large arches. 24 by 20 feet each.
In the south portion a hall is to be ele
gantly fitted and furnished in which the
manufacturers or merchants who are
subscribers or exhibitors will have op
portunity for social and business inter
course with buyos. The exhibit is to
be maintained andnospace will be rent
ed for less than one year. The depart
ments ttr to be under the immediate
direction and supervision of the board
of directors. An information bureau
will .be maintained, free to either sub
scriber or -buyer. A monthly bulletin
is to be established for subscribers and
exhibitors, containing Informatl'-'' -
gardlng transactions, failures and mat
ters of interest to the dealer, besides
the laws affecting commerce, mining or
agriculture, standing of Mexican fit ins,
etc. Expert mechanics will be provided
to explain to visitors the advantages or
using the machinery displayed as well
as expense of running the same. The
technical department will also attend
to the Installation and running of
plants. A legal department is provid
ed to attend to the settlement cf claims
and lltlgat'on and to furnish all data
required to avoid" loss and trouble with
custom house officials-, information- as
to documents, etc.. which is all to be
free of charge, so long as the- informa
tion relates directly to the exhibits.
Admission to the exchange is to be
free to all. It is Intended solely for the
promotion of business. Only houses and
manufactories of first class standing
are to be allotted space. The officers oC
the Mexican-American Commercial

Mr. B. F. Porter, who returned. yea

man came to 'the-railroad camp there,
riding one burro and driving another.
He had a prospector's- outfit and
seemed to bs in very depressed cir
cumstances. His skin was datk and
Mr. Porter was prompted by the man
ner of the man to enter into a conver
sation witn him. He discussed the sub
ject of the assassination of President
McKinley and seemed to grieve ex
ceedingly over the circumstance.
Finally Mr. Porter asked him
whether he was a Mexican. He said
he was net but was a native of the old
est country In the world. Further con
versation revealed the fact that the
stranger was Hi Jolly, a native of
Greece, and the man who brought the
camels to Arizona, forty years age tin-
der instructions from Admiral Porter,
wno was commiessionea uy the govern
ment -to- establish camel tiansporbation
across the great American desert.
The story of the camels has been
told till it is an old one. and the story
of Hi Jolly is familiar to all old-timers.
After the camel experiment was given
up as a failure fte became- an Arizona
pioneer, and was at various times em
ployed by the government as a scout,
guide and packer, and it is said there
were none better. He- saw service with
Crook. Miles end all the frontier cam-
paigne:s, and was seriously wounded
in the ankle in a fight with Indians, the
wound now giving him considerable
troubi-e. When the war in the Philip
pines broke out he was Importuned to
go to the Philippines as a packer and
consented, but reluctantly, on account
of his great- age. ' As he feared, the cli
mate was too severe for him, and he
was forced- to return to Arizona again.
He said he was on his way. tor Fort
Huachuca where he has a friend who
would help him. He told Mr. Porter
that he was trying to get a pension, but
: -the work was progressing slowly. His
i trouble Is that though he has been for
many years connected with the military
! service, it has, for the most part, been
under contract rather than by enlist
ment, and now 6$ years old and without
means, though one- of the most de
serving of men, he is meeting difficulty
in establishing his claims under the
pension laws. A letter he carries from
an official Intimates that while he be
lieves the man fully deserving, he fears
It will require a special act of congress
for his relief. If this be true, and it is
within the power of any citizen of the
tetrltory to help him that favor should
be tendered him, for HI Jolly was one
of the men that made Arizona fit to
live in. .
