Wbo was thia man who has last fallon a victim to tho toachinga of dia ordor nnd murdor? Ho wob a typlcal nativo born Amcrican citizen, His birth wns at Niles, Ohio, Fobruary 20, 1814. What mannor of youth was tho boy McKlnloy? In 1801 tho nation was ongagcd in gigantic war for Hb oxiat onco. It wns calllng on lls Bons for ns siatnnco.

Thoro was tho solid fouudation for a good mno, and on thia basia was roarcd tho supcr structure that is tho prldo of his coun trymon. Tho soldior bccamo n lawycr. Tho soldior was tho pilot of tho civilian. IIo was markod for politlcal profor ment. IIo waa olectod to tho forty Ilfth Congrcas and was continuously rc-elcctod till tho Ufty-Qrst. In that body ho early becamo a lcader.

IIo was not roturn ed to CongresB but in 1891 bo was clcctcd Governor of Ohio and re-olect-ed in 1893. A man of abllitica his wholo caroor bad provcd him to bo. That ho was a man of honor bright ho had sbown also. Ho had beon ofton tho dclcgato of his Stato in tho national convcntiona of his p .rty. In 18S8 ho was clothod by his follow citizens with tho respon sibility of promoling tho candidacy of John 8hormnn for tho nomination to tho Presidoncy. Tho convention was ono of tho most notablo that had ob- sorablcd to select n party condidate. Tho dclcgatcs did not want Shorman but they showtd unmistakably that they would tako McKinley.

Eulogy of William McKlnloy is an oaBy and gratoful taak. His pnnegyrist may givo full play to bis dlspositiou or inclluation to praiso. In bis subject thoro is nothing to cmbarruBB.

Tho quality of his early manhood was ex hibitcd as a membcr of tho Logislaturo of Naw York in 1882 aud 1884, in tho early twentios of his cxistonce. IIo was tho author of tho State civil sorvico roform law, nnd othor laws cstabliBbing great roforms in tho govornment of tho city of Now York. In 1880 ho waa tho Republican candidato formayorof Now York, and in 1889 wns onoof tho na tional civil sorvicb commiaaioners. In 1884 he waB ono of New York's dole gatcs at largo in tho national Republi can convention and with his colloagucs supportcd in that body tho candidacy of Georgo F.

In ovcry public Btntion ho had fllled ho had acquittcd bimsolf with nn i bility and succobb, nnd bad displayod tho qualities that gavo him national diBlinctlon. IIo was robust phyBically, fourlcss, a scholar and an accompliehed writer, acuto montally, not courting oncountcr but novor shrinking from any cngagoment, n courtly gcntleman bui baving tho slrongth and hardihood of a frontiors mtiu, and baving tho fondneaB of tho frontioramnn for tho horoic aporta of tho plaius and mountains. Amid any onvironment tho morul quality of tho man was always predominant. Undor tho flrst McKinloy adminis tration ho took ofllco as asBistant soc retary of tho navy, nnd to him tbo wonderful preparodnoss of that arm of tho mllitary aorvico for war whon tho storm broko in 1898 is popularly ns cribod. In that contoat ho cortainly oxbibitod tho cloar inaight of propbesy into tho future. Tho Btuff of which Roosevelt is rnado is porhaps hoat shown by tho circumatauco that, bav ing soen his departmont thoroughly equipped and propared for war, he throw up a clvil ofllco of bigh rcsponsl bility, lucratlvo aud honorablo, shel tored from tho dcndly porils of actual war, in which ho mlght woll and truly havo ploadcd as his frionda did plond with hlm ho could bost sorvo his country, to rnlso tbo most unlquo body of cavnlry that ovor charged in battlo.

For nn ofllcor or any onlisted man of tbo Rough Ridors tbo prospect of porfora tlon by a Spanlsh bullot was oxtroruoly probnblo. ThiB probnbillty wns vori- flcd by tho facts of tho milltnry scrvico.

With equal forco wisdom suggests tbatin due timo Prosident Roosevolt hitch up n cabinet toam af his own solection. It would not bo aurprising, for reasons of stato as woll ns on many poroonal conaidora tiona,ift hero should bo a change iu tho ofllco of Secretary of Str-te. Secrotery Hay would probably seok tho oppor tunity for rolcaao from labora nnd ro aponsibilitios which may havo pa'ted with the glamour that onco invcsted thom. Tho country has bnd a growing rogard for tho wiadom nnd cnpacity of Elihu Root, tho Secretary of War.

Soward or Hamilton Flsh. It might bo easior to flnd nn efllcleut successor to Mr. Root in tho war departmont than to Mr. Hay in tho departmont of stato. Porsonal and local consider ntiona might also dcciaivoly inclino tbo Preaidont to Mr. Root. Mr. McKinloy took his Secretary of Stato in both ad ministrations from tho Stato of his citi zensliip. It would not bo surprising if Prosident Rooaovelt should follow this nnd othor elrailar prccodents, and it is probablo tho country would bo woll content. It is not probablo that n chnngo would bo mado in tho navy depart mont pouding tho dotorminatiou of tbo Scbloy-Sampaon inveatigation.
