Remains of the President Taken From Buffalo
Entire Route Lined With People.
Washington, Sept 17. Through a
living lane of bareheaded people
stretching from Buffalo up over the
Alleghanies down into the broad val
leys of the Susquehanna and the city
on the banks of the shining Potomac,
the Nation's martyred President made
his. last journey to the seat of the
Government over which he presided
for four years and a half. The whole
country seemed to have drained its
population at the side of the track
over which the funeral train passed.
The thin lines through the mountains
and the sparsely-settled districts thick
ened as the little hamlets suddenly
grew to the proportions of respectable
cities, and were congregated into vast
multitudes ia the larger cities. - Work
was suspended in field and mine and
city. The schools were dismissed. Ev
erywhere appeared the trappings and
tokens of woe. Millons of flags at
half-mast dotted hillsides and valley,
and formed a thicket of color over
the cities. : And from almost every
banner streamed a bit of crape. The
stations were heavy with the. black
smybol of mourning. At all the larger
towns and cities, after the train got
into Pennsylvania, militiamen drawn
up at "present arms," kept back the
enormous crowds. The silence with
which the countless thousands viewed
the remains of their hero and martyr
was oppressive and profound. ,
Only ' the rumbling of the train
wheels, the sobs. of. men- and women,
with tear-stained faces, and the dole
ful tolling of the church bells, -broke
upon the ear. At several places, Wil
liamsport, Harrisburg and Baltimore,
the chimes played Cardinal Newman's
grand hymn.- Taken altogether, the
Journey home was the most remark
able demonstration of universal per
sonal sorrow since Lincoln was borne
ot his grave. Every one of those who
came to pay their last tribute to the
dead had an opportunity to catch a
glimpse of the flag-covered bier ele
vated in view in the observation car
at the rear of the train. - ' ?. '
There was no spot of color to catch
the eye of this train of death.. The
locomotive was shrouded in black, the
curtains of the cars in which sat the
lone, stricken widow, the relatives ot
the President, Cabinet and others were
drawn. The whole black -train .'was
like a shuttered house, save only for
the hindmost car where the body lay
guarded by a soldier of the Army and
a sailor of the Navy.
Mrs. McKinley stood the trip brave
ly. In the morning, soon after leav
ing Buffalo, she pleaded so earnestly
to be allowed to go into the car where
her dead one lay that relucant consent
was given, and she spent a half hour
beside the coffin. All the way the
train was perceded about 15 -minutes
by a pilot engine, sent ahead to test
the bridges and switches, and prevent
the possibility of an. accident to the
precious burden it' carried.. The train
had the right of way over everything.
Not a wheel moved on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad system 30 minutes be
fore the pilot engine was flue.
General Superintendent J. a. llutcn-
inson had sent out . explicit . instruc
tions covering every detail. The or
der included: "Every precaution must
be taken by all employes to make this
move absolutely certain."
General Boyd, assistant passenger
agent, had personal charge of tne
train. The train Jeft Buffalo at 8:30
o'clock a. m. and arrived at Washing
ton at 8:38 o'clock p. m. In 12 hours,
it Is estimated that over half a mil
lion people saw the coffin which held
all that was mortal ot President Mc
Kinley. . " '
While the casket was being removed
from the observation car one of the
large windows was lowered at the side,
slowly and carefully the casket was
slipped through the opening and ten
derly received upon the bent shoulders
of the body-bearer four artillerymen
and four sailors.- Straightening them
selves unde rtheir burden, they walked
slowly : toward the hearse. ' At the
casket emerged a bulgle note 1 rose
clearly, and "taps" rang out. That
was the only sound that broke the dead

Buffalo, Sept. 16. Theodore Roose
velt, who today was tragically elevated
to the'Chief Magistracy of the Ameri
can Republic by the death of President
McKinley, entered"thls city of mourn
ing yesterday afternoon, after a re
markable -and perilous journey from
the heart of the north woods. '
He had been President under the
Constitution and law of the land, since
the minute the martyred President
ceased to live. All the duties and pow
ers of the office had devolved upon
him, but he was as powerless as the
humblest citizen to exercise one of
them until he had complied with the
constitutional provision requiring him
to take a prescribed oath to support
and defend the Constitution and laws
of the United States.
RESULT OF- THE AUTOPSY.
Death Caused by GangrenedPossibility of the
Bullet Having Bees) Poisoned.
Buffalo, Sept 17. The following re
port of the autopsy upon the remains
of President McKinley has been made
public: - - : . -
"The bullet which struck over the
breastbone did not pass through the
skin and did little harm. The other
bullet passed through.! both walls ot
the stomach near its? lower border.
Both holes were foundL to be perfect
ly closed by the stUches, but the
tissue around each hole had become
gangrenous. After passing through
the stomach the bullet passed into
the . back walls of the' abdomen, hit
ting and tearing the ujjper end of the
kidney. This portion Ot the bullet's
track was also gangrenous the gang
rene involving the pancreas. - The
bullet has not yet been, found. . There
was no sign of peritonitis or disease
of other organs. The heart walls
were very thin. There was no evi
dence of any atem.pt at repair on the
part of nature,- and death resulted
from the gangrene which affected the
stomach around - the bullet wounds,
as well as the tissues around the fur
ther course of the bullet. Death was
unavoidable by any surgical or med
ical treatment, and was the direct re
sult of the bullet wound."

Mllburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 14.
President McKinley died at 2:15 a. m.
He had been unconscious most of the
time since 7:50 p. m. His last con
scious hour on earth was spent with
the wife to whom, he devoted a life
time of care. He died unattended by
a minister of the gospel, but his last
words were a humble submission to
the will of the God in whom he be
lieved. He was reconciled to the cruel
fate to which an assassin's bullet had
condemned him and faced death in the
same spirt of calmness which has
marked his- long and honorable career.
His last conscious words, reduced
to writing by Dr. Mann, who stood at
his bedside when they were uttered,
were: "Good-bye all, good-bye. It is
God's way. His will be done."

Presidents Last Words.
The President, in his last period of
consciousness, which ended about
7 : 40, chanted the words of the hymn,
"Nearer, My God, to Thee," and his
last audible words, as taken down by
Dr. Mann at the bedside, were:
"Good-bye, all; good-bye. It Is God's
way; His will be done."
Then his mind began to wander, and
soon he completely lost consciousness.
His life was prolonged for some hours
by the administration of oxygen, and
the President finally expressed a de
sire to be allowed to die.
About 8:30 the administration of
oxygen ceased and the pulse grew
fainter and fainter. He was sinking
gradually like a child into eternal
The Funeral Train.: .
Buffalo, Sept, 17. The train that
carried the late Presdent's body to
the National Capital was a solid Pull
man of seven cars, drawn by two en
gines. An extra engine went 15 min

erything. 1 The casket was placed be

the people as 'the train passed by.

The new President had just come from

characteristically impulsive way; he
had gone first to the house of mourn

The report of the autopsy has giv
en rise to the theory, hinted at a day
or two after the President was shot,
that Czolgosz, in order to insure the
accomplishment of his purpose, pois
oned the bullets that were fired. The
gangrene found in the path of the
bullet is -thought to be strong "evi
dence in support 'of this view by Dr.
Wasdin, one of the consulting phy
sicians. Dr. Wasdln is considered an
expert of high standing in the Ma
rine Hospital "service. A chemical
and bacteriological examination of
the remaining bullets In the pistol
will, however, confirm . or demolish
this theory and such an examination
will undoubtedly be made at once by
the authorities. -

RESULT OF A CONSPIRACY.
Assassin Czolgosz Breaks Down and Makes a
New York, Sept. 12. A 'special to
the Herald from Buffalo says: Leon
Czolgosz has confessed to the police
that his attempt upon the life of
President McKinley was the result of
a conspiracy in which many besides
himself had a part. So far as can be
learned Czolgosz has refused to men
tion any name except that of Emma
Goldman, but papers are in existence
which. If they can be discovered, will
lay bare the entire conspiracy and
will result in wholesale arrests, . fol-'
lowed by prosecutions.
Although Emma Goldman has been
arrested in Chicago, it is probable
that she will be brought to Buffalo
for trial. The center of the conspi
racy is here. Buffalo Is filled literally

In the Death Chamber.
From authoritative officials the fol

and about the death chamber were se
The President had contlnued. 'ln an
unconscious state Since 8:30 p. m.
Dr.. Rixey remained with him at all
times and .until death came.' The
other doctors were in the room - at
times, and then repaired to the front
room, ; where their " consultation had
been" -held. ' About 2 o'clock Dr. Rixey
noted the unmistakable signs of dis
solution, and "the Immediate members
of the family were summoned to the
bedside. Mrs. McKinley was asleep
and it was desirable not to .awaken
her for the last moments of anguish.
Silently and sadly the members of
the family stole into the room. They
stood about the foot and sides of the
bed where the great man's life was
ebbing away. Those In the circle
were: ' . ' ;
By 10 o'clock the pulse could no

they grew cold.
Below stairs the grief-stricken gath
ering waited sadly for the end.
All the evening, those who had has
tened here, as fast as steel and steam
could carry them, continued to arrive.
They-drove up in carriages at a gal
lop, or were , whisked up In automo
biles, all intent upon getting here be
fore death came. One of the last to
arrive was Attorney-General Knox,
who reached the house at 9:30. He
was permtted to go upstairs, to look
for the last time upon the face of his
When the End Came.
It was now 2:05 o'clock, and the
minutes were slipping away. - Only the
sobs of those in the circle about the
President's bedside broke the awe-like
silence. Five minutes passed, then
six, seven, eight now Dr. Rixey bent
forward, and then one of his hands
was raised as if in warning. The flut
tering heart was just going to rest
A moment more and Dr. Rixey
straightened up. and, with a choking
"The President Is dead."
Secretary Cortelyou was the first to
turn from the stricken circle. He step
ped from the chamber to the outer
hall and then down the stairway to
the large room where the members of
tne cabinet, Senators and distinguish-
ea omciais were assembled.
- As his tense white face appeared at
tne doorway a hush fell upon the

to overflowing with agents of the
secret service. A search Is being
made of every sewer that underlies
the city, for It is known that in one
of them is a package of papers con
taining details of the conspiracy and
the names of those concerned with
Czolgosz in the plot, together with an
outline of Its ramifications.
In his confession Czolgosz told of
his attempt to destroy' the written
evidence ot the conspiracy. He said
that they did not permit him to burn
the papers as he had desired. Before
leaving his room in Nowak's hotel he
gathered together all of his papers,
taking them from his pockets, and
from his valise, and from the draw
ers of his table. All were bound to
gether In one package, which he con- -cealed
beneath his coat. Czolgosz
says that he made a circuitous and
aimless trip about the city, and that
at some point, which he cannot now
describe, he came upon an open
sewer. Into this sewer he cast his
papers. Inch by inch the sewers of
this city are being searched, and If
such a thing is possible, those papers
will be recovered.
On authoritative Information it can
be said that during the last ten
weeks Emma Goldman has visited six
anarchist organizations. She has been
in Buffalo three times since July 12,
having left the city the last time four
days before the attempted assassina
tion. Emma Goldman. Czolgosz. Abra
ham Isaak and Marie Isaak were in
consultation in Chicago on two occas

Emma Goldman to Buffalo the last
time the arch leader of the anarchists
was here. ' . -. .

who acted so suspiciously as to war
