Canton O., September 6 Five years
ago today in the late afternoon of Sept.
6. 1901. President McKinlev wu shot
and mortally wounded by Leon Czolgoz,
ignorant frantic of anarchists tendencies
while attending a publio reception at the
Temple of Music, on the grounds of the
Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo.
President McKinley died of his wound
on September 14 at the residence of Mr.
John Q. Milburn President of the exposit
ion, whose guest he was during his visit
to the Fair. The scenes at the time of
assassination, the anxions days of the
fatal illness of the martyr President, the
grief caused by his untimely death through
out the country will never be forgotten
by the people of this country who loved
McKinley as a man full of human kind
ness, honest and upright apd inspired by
a deep love for his country. Many large
and costl y monuments, erected in large
and small cities throughout the country
to honor the memory of McKinley speak
eloquently of the love and esteem which
the American people bore their ill-fated
The magniflcant monument, which will
this, his home city, is not yet completed
but it is expected that next year, on Sept.
14, the anniversary of McKinley't death
the national monument will be unveiled
and de dicated. The monument will cost
$50,000 and a fund of an additional
$100,000 is now being raised to form an
endowment for the purpose of keeping
the monument in repair. The imposing
monument in Buffalo is completed and so
are scores of other monuments in other
cities less pretentions, perhaps, but no less
eloquent tokens of the peoples love for
the departed soldier-statesman.

GEN. CORBIN AFTER GOSSIPERS
(Scrlppa News Association!
Washington, D. C. Sept 6 Lieutenant
Gen, H. C. Corbin is determined to "go
after" the army officers who have been
submitting themselves to newspaper inter
view, with the result of charging that he
and other prominent army officers have
been using official facilities in Manila for
the embellishment of their private estab
lishments. For a long time it was the
custom in Manila for the quartermaster
shops to do odd jobs for army officers,
all of it in the way of improving the gov
ernment quarters occupied by officers and
their families. It was in the interest of
household comfort and domestic sanita
tion, qualities which could not have been
improved by resorting to private facilities
in that city. This labor did not represent
an expenditure of the public money for
personal benefit, and whatever was done
on the quarters in the way of improve
ment on the exterior or interior has been
for the benefit of an who chanced to
occupy the buildings at that time time and
since. Lien. Corbin feels the criticisms
which have been made, and he has asked
the War Department to ascertain from
certain army officers who have expressed
themselves, just what they said, and, if he
finds there has been an injustice dona to
him he intends to seek redress through
official channels. j
