THE PRESIDENT HAS PASSED AWAY.
Death Occurs On Saturday Morning, Caused by Gangrene
From Imbedded Bullet Closing Hours
Story of Hia Last Hours of Life
Mrs. McKlnley Not Present
&t the End
President McKinley died at 2 :15a. ru.,
Saturday. Ha had been unconscious
since 7 :50 p. tn. liis last conscious hour
on earth was spent with his wife, to
whom he devoted a lifetime uf rare. He
died unattended by a minister of the Gos
pel, but bis last words were a humble sub
mission to the will of the tioil in whom lie
believed, lie was reconciled to the cruel
fate to which an assassin's bullet had
condemned him and faced death in the
same spirit of calmness which has
marked his long and honorable carter.
ilia Wat conscious words, reduced to
writing by Dr. Mann, who stood at his
bedside when they were utterrd, were:
"tiood-by, all: good by. Il is (iod's
way. 11 is will be done."
Hia relatives and the members of his
official family wereatlheMilhurn house,
except Secretary Wilson, who did not
avail himself of the opportunity, and
some of his personal and political friends
took leave of him. Thia painful cere
mony was simple. His friends came to
the door of the tick room, took a longing
glance at bim and turned tearfully away,
lie was practically unconscious during
this lime. But the powerful heart si iiu
ulants, including oxygen, were employed
to restore him to consciousness for the
final parting with hia wife, lie asked
for her and she eat at his aide and held
hia hand, lie consoled her and bade her
good by. She went throuifh the heart
rending scene with the same braveiy
and fortitude with which she has borne
the grief of the tragedy which ended liis
From authoritative officials the folios
ing details of the final scenes in and
about the death chamber were secured :
The President had continued In an un
conscious slate since 7:30 p. in. Dr.
ltixey remained with him at all times
and until death came. The other doc
tors were in the room at limes, and -then
repaired to the front room, where their
consultation had been held. About 2
o'clock Dr. Riley noted the uiimistaka
ble signs of dissolution, and the I mine
diale members of the family were sum
nidned to the bedside. Mrs. McKinley
was asleep and it was desirable not to
awaken her fur the last inoiiieiil of an
guish. Silenily 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:
Abner McKinley, the President's
bi other; Mrs. Abner McKinley; Miss
lle'en, the President's sister; Mrs Sarah
Dunran and sister; Miss Mary Jiarber, a
niece; Miss Sarah Duncan j Lieutenant
J. F. McKinley, a nephew; Chares
Dawes, the Controller of the Currency;
F. M. Osborne, a cousin; Colonel Webb
C. Hayes; John A. Barber, a nephew;
Secretary Geoige II. Cur lei) ou; Colonel
W. C. Brown, the business partner ol
Abner McKinley ; Dr P. M. Hixej , the
family phyrician, ami alx uures and at
tendants. In an adjoining loom sat the phisi
cians, including Drs. Mtilurney, Waidin,
Parke, Stockton and Mynter,
It was now S;06 o'clock, ami the min
utes were slipping away. Only the sol
of those in the circle about the Prsii
denl'a bedside broke the awe-like silence.
Five minutes passed, then six, seven,
eight now Dr. Kixey bent forward, and
then one of his bands was raited as if in
warning. The fluttering heart was Jut
going to rest. A moment more and Dr
K ley straightened up and, with a chok
ing voice, laid :
"The President is dead."
Herrelary Corlelyoa was the Br.t to
urn from the stricken circle. He step
ped Irom the chamber to ttis outer hall
and then down the stairway to the large
room where lbs members of tbe Cablu-'t,
Senators and distinguiabrd officials were
war in bled.
As bis tense while fare appeared at
the doorway a hush fell upou the assem
blage. "entleinen, the President has paim-d
away," he Mid.
For a moment not a word cams in re
ply. Even though the and had been ex
pected, the actual announcement that
Mr, McKinley was dead (airly stunned
these men who bad been bis closest con
fidants and advisers. Then groan of
anguish went up from the assembled of
ficials. The cried like children. All
the pent-up emotions of the last few days
were let loose. They turned from the
room and came from the bouse with
The following account is given of the
occasion when Theodore Koosevelt took
the oath of office:
The scene was a most affecting one.
The new I resident bad just come from
the Milhurn house, where bis predecessor
lay cold in death. Overcome by the deep
personal sorrow he felt, in his character
istically impulsive way he had gone first
to the bouse of mourning to offer bis
condolence and sympathy to the broken
hearted widow. Secretary Root, who 20
years ago had been present st a similar
scene when Arthur look the oalh after
the death of another President who (ell a
victim to an assassin's bullet, almost
broke down when be requested Mr.
Koosevelt, on behalf of the members of
the Cabinet of Hie late President, to take
the prescribed oath. There was not a
dry eye In the room.
The new President was visibly shaken,
but he controlled himsell, and when he
lifted his hand lo swear it was as steady
as though carved in marble. With the
deep solemnity of the occasion be an
flounced lo those present that, his aim
would he to be Willi un M Kinley's suc
cessor in deed as well aa In name. IU:
libemtely he proclaimed it in th-'se
"In this hour of deep and terrible Na
tional bereavement I wish to state that
it shall be my aim to continue absolute
ly without variance the policy of Presi
dent McKinley for the peace and prosper
ity and honor of our beloved country."
The far-reaching significance of thia
pledge lo continue the policy of the dead
President, announced at the very thresh
old of a new governmental regime, pro
foundly impressed his hearers, and Presi
dent Itooseve'l'e first step after taking
the oath was iu line with Us redemption.
His first act was to ask the members of
the Cabinet lo retain their portfolios In
order to aid him to conduct the Govern
ment on lines laid down by him whose
policy he had declared lie would uphold.
Such an appeal was not to be resisted,
snd every member of the Cabinet, In
cluding Secretary of Slate Hay and Sec
retary of the Treasury lage, who were
"communicated with in Washington, bare
agreed, for the present, at least, tore
lain their several portfolios.
Mr. Koosevelt is the youngest man by
about six years, who ever look that oath,
and entered upon lh arduous and
momentous duties of President. He
was born October 2D, lhTig, and is there
fore not yet quite 43 years old. But he
has seen set vice of various kinds, civil
and military, and especially served a
useful apprenticeship to the great office
he now enters upon as Governor ol
New York. He is strong, resolute,
self-reliant, virile, active sanguine man,
untiringly progressive and ardently
patriotic. He is naturallv pugnacious,
but thoroughly a gentleman and con
siderable of a scholar withal. His
accomplishments are varied, lis cn
lasso a wild steer on the run, or write a
book, lis lias been soldier, reformer,
legislator, executive. Though heredita
rily ol what is popuarly called the aris
tocratic element, no man in practice is
more thoroughly democratic. Ha des
pises shams, and it is suspected baa
little use for political bosses, though he
has not always antagonised Ihtm
Preeident Konsevtlt's temperament is
sui b asniiglil.il it were not kept in chet k,
make turn in certain contingencies,
an unsafe President; that la, bis natural
pugnaiiiy and characteristic strenositj
imuhl involve the country in ditllcoltie
thai a mild, calm, auave, polilie Presi
dent like the lamruted McKinley would
by skilliul ladies avoid; but with on
r.jus responsibilities nearly always tonus
conservatism and soberness. A man aa
pruident does not always act exactly at
ha talked aa a campaigner or a colcnsl.
Ths countiy baa entire confidence in
Koosevelt. and believes that he will
make a sale as well as a vigorous presi
dent. There is little donM of one thing;
the prrmdent will be Theodore Koose
