The President is Dead.
President McKinley, the nation’s
loved one, '.s dead. His spirit has
gone to join those of the sainted
Lincoln and gifted (iartield, who,
like himself, fell, in the prime of
life and zenith of their glory, the
victim of au assassin’s bullet.
Words cannot express the nation’s
grief in this saU hour. While
another will take up the life work
of our noble President none can till
his place. lie was loved by all the
people, irrespective of party, not
only for his st ttesmanship, but on
account of his honesty of purpose
and his pure, Christian life.
It is indeed sad to think that this
land of civilization and Christianity,
where such a good mail as our
lamented President lived and labored
for the good of his country and its
people, should be polluted by the
murderous Anarchist.
The nation, bowed in grief for its
irreparable loss, which words fail us
to express, offers to Mrs. McKinley,
who was so recently near death’s
door herself, its tenderest sympathy
in her utter desolation and sorrow.
President Roosevelt.
Our new President, lion. Theo
dore Koosevelt, has had a remarka
bly career. lie graduated from
Harvard at the age of twenty-two,
since which time he has been gradu
ally climbing the ladder of fame
and prominence, until now'—stand
ing as he does on the topmost
round, lie has promised to carry
out President McKinley’s policy. If
he does'this, and we feel sure he will,
the people will be satisfied and
pleased and the country will con
tinue to prosper.
N\ e believe Mr. Koosevelt will
prove to he a wise and and an ac
ceptable President.
The Governor's Proclamation.
Governor White was one of the
first Governors :n the country to
issue a proclamation calling atten
tion to the death of President Mc
Kinley. The following excerpt is
from his proclamation:
“No sincerer mourners are there
in our broad land than West Vir
ginians. < >ur people knew McKinley
as neighbor, friend and comrade; his
face and voice were familiar to many
thousands of our citizens; he was
universally loved as a man and
trusted as our chief executive.
As a mark of respect, I direct that
the National colors be placed at
halt staff over the public buildings
in our Mate for a period of thirty
days; that the Capitol building be
draped in mourning until after the
obsequies; that the day of the funeral
be observed as one of prayer and
mourning; that so far as possible
there be a complete cessation of labor
throughout the borders of our State
during the hours of the funeral; and
I recommend that memorial services
be held at that time where practi
I he arrest of Krnina (toldman in
Chicago will he hailed with satisfac
tion l»y the people of the entire
country. It may not be proved
that she conspired with the assailant
of the President to murder the latter,
but her expressions since her arrest
indicate that she has no sympathy
whatever with the victim and
abundant pity for the base assassin,
