Auburn, N. Y., Oct. 30.—Leon
Czolgosz' body has lost its identity
in the dust of the tomb. Not many
hours' time has elapsed since the as
sassin of President McKinley, defiant
to the last, was led to the electrocu
tion chair and executed for his crime.
But in this short time acids have
done their work upon the remains of
the assassin and there is not a vestige
of his flesh or bone remaining in the
unmarked grave in the prison ceme
tery about which guards keep silent
but unrelenting vigil. --W
Such is the fate of the despised an
archist, who on September 6, less than
two months ago, shot down the presi
dent of the nation at the Buffalo ex
position. His clothing has been
burned and there survives only the
letters he received in prison, which
will be kept as clews to anarchists,
and'the record that he paid the law's
extreme penalty after a short incar
ceration in a condemned man's cell.
That Czolgosz was perfectly sane was
proved by the autopsy and the ex
amination of his brain soon after his
Czolgosz was electrocuted at exact
ly 7:12:30 o'clock Tuesday morning.
The witnesses assembled in the death
chamber at 7:08 o'clock and at 7:10:30
the murderer was brought in. He
was intensely pale and the four
guards who accompanied him had to
urge him forward after he had stum
bled on the threshold of the entrance.
The assassin had refused to make a
confession or to call a priest, but as

in a of
Attorney General Douglas has ruled
that the death of former Governor John
S. x'illsbury has created no vacancy on
the board of regents of the state uni
versity. The opinion was given at the
request of Governor Van Sant, and in it
Mr. Douglas says:
"The general purpose of the legislature
was toi honor Mr. Pillsbury by making
him a life member of this board. In
stead of passing a separate enactment
to accomplish this purpose, the legisla
ture amended the then existing law creat
ing the board, and thereby made Mr.
Pillsbury an honorary member having the
same powers as other members, and in
cidentally changed the total number to
"The second paragraph provides spe
cifically for the appointment of nine
other members not specially designated
in the act. If the act is construed as con
tinuing the total number of thirteen
members after the death of Mr. Pills
bury, the provision referred to authoriz
ing the appointment of nine members for
a specific term, of necessity must be con
strued as authorizing the appointment of
ten members, one of whom shall serve
for another and different term than pro
vided by the act in question. The clause
in the act quoted, to-wit:
'Whenever a vacancy therein occurs
for any cause the same shall be filled
for the unexpired term in the same man
ner,' can have no reference whatever, in
my judgment, to the term of Mr. Pills
bury, which the^ legislature provided
should continue during his good pleasure.
If this clause is given any effect what
ever, it must be deemed as having refer
ence to the power of the legislature,
which is supreme in the premises."

The Northern Pacific yesterday receiv
ed from the railway underwriters one of
the largest insurance policies ever writ
ten in the United States. Its total was
$13,500,000. It is the largest single policy
the company ever gave. In addition to
the above, the company has also insured,
out of its own fund, a large amount of
property, the total being about 56,600,000,
making a total Insurance just provided

The insurance covers all property which
is destroyable by fire, and includes roll

houses, depot buildings, shops, round
houses, etc. Insurance on railroad prop

was comparatively low.
