Buffalo, Sept. 16. Theodore Roose

to the Chief Magistracy of the Ameri
can Republic by the death of President
McKinley, entered this 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 aud pow
ers of the office had devolved upon
him, but be was as powerless as the
humblest citizen to exercise one of
them until he had complied with the
constitutional provision requiring htm
to take a prescribed oath to support
and defend the Constitution and laws
of the United States.

He took the oath at 3:30 o'clock Sat

There were present when he swore
to th oath: Secretaries Root, Hitch

of New York, Judge of the Court of
Appeals Halght, John H. Scathered,
Mr. and Mrs. Ansley Wilcox, Miss Wil

Carlton Sprague, Mr. and Mrs. John
G. Mllliurn, the secretary to the Presi

C. R. Scathered. J. D. Sawyer and Wil
liam Jeffers, official telegrapher, in ad
dition to Judge John R. Hazel, of the
United States District Court, who ad
ministered the oath.
The scene was a most affecting one.
The new President had Just come from
Milburn house, where his predecessor
lay cold In death. Overcome by the
deep personal sorrow he felt, in his
characteristically Impulsive way he
had gone first to the house of mourn
ing to offer his condolence and sym
pathy to the broken hearted widow.
Secretary Root, who 20 years ago had
been present at a similar scene when
Arthur took the oath after the death
of another President who fell a victim
to an assassin's bullet, almost broke
down when he requested Mr. Roosevelt
on behalf of the members of the Cabi
net of the late President, to take the
prescribed oath. There was not a dry
eye in the room.
The new President was visibly shak
en, but he controlled himself, and
when he lifted his hand to swear it
was as steady as though carved in
marble. With the deep solemnity of
the occasion he announced to those
prerent that his aim would be to be
WU'.iam McKlnley's successor In deed
as well as In name. Deliberately he
proclaimed It In these words:
"In this hour of deP and terrible
National bereavement I wish to state
tht it shall be my aim to continue ab

of President McKinley for the peace
and prosperity and honor of our belov

RESULT OF THE AUTOPSY.
Death Caused by Gangrene Possibility of the
Bullet diving Been Poisoned.
Buffalo, Sept 17. The following re
port of the autopsy upon the remains
of President McKinley has been made
"The bullet which struck over the
breastbone did not pass through the
skin and did little harm. The other
bullet passed through both walls of
the stomach near its lower border.
Both holes were found to be perfect
ly closed by the stitches, 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 upper end of the
kidney. This portion of 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." ,
The report of the autopsy has giv
en rise to the theory, hinted at a day
or two after the President wag shot,
that Czolgosx, 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 supports this view by Dr.
Wasdin, one of the consulting phy-.
slclans. Dr. Wasdin is considered an
expert of high standing In the Ma
rine Hospital service. A chemical
and bacteriological examination of
the remaining bullets In the pUtol
will, however, confirm or demolish
this theory and such an examination
will undoubtedly be made at once by

Remains of the President Taken From Buffalo
Entire Route UnedWith People.
Washington, Sept 17. Through a
living lane of bareheaded people
stretching from Buffalo up over the
AUeghanies 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 in the larger cities. Work
a suspended In field and mine and
city. The schools were dismissed. Ev
erywhere appeared the trappings and
tokens of woe. Mlllons 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
smyboi 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 of
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 IS 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 due.
General Superintendent J. B. Hutch
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 the
train. The train left 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 fthelr burden, they walked
slowly toward the hearse. At the
casket emerged a bulgle note rose
clearly, and "taps" rang out. That
was the only sound that broke the dead
- 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
glnes. An extra engine went IS mln
utes ahead to clear the track of ev
erything. The casket was placed be
tween open windows on the observa
tion car, where it was in plain view ot
thA people as the train passed by.
The casket of the dead President
was completely covered with a beau
tiful silk flag. At the head was a
floral piece representing the French
and American colors, the gift of a
Franco-American society. Standing at
the foot of the casket was a soldier
of the United States Army, uniformed
and accoutred with a gun at "order
arms." At the head a sailor of the
Navy stood at "attention," cutlass at
shoulder. The lid of the casket was

Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 11.
President McKinley died at 2:15 a. m.
He had been unconscious most of the
time since 7:50 p. ra. Hlj last con
scious hour on earth was spent with
the wife to whom, he devoted a life
time of care. He died unattended by
& 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."

His relatives and the members ot his
offlcal family were at the Milburn
House except Secretary Wilson, who
did not avail himself ot the opportun
ity, and some of his personal and po
litical friends took leave of him. This
painful ceremony was simple. His
friends came to the door of the sick
room, took a longing glance at him
and then turned tearfully away.
The Partinj With Hit Wife.
He was practically unconscious dur
ing this time. But powerful heart
stimulants, Including oxygen, were
employed to restore htm to conscious
ness for his final parting with his wife.
He asked for her and she sat at his
side and held his hand. He consoled
her and bade her goodbye. 8he went
through the heart-rending scene with
the saem bravery and fortitude with
which she has borne the grief of the
tragedy which ended his life.
In the Death Chamber.
From authoritative officials the fol
lowing details ot the final scenes in
and about the death chamber were se
cured: The President had continued in an
unconscious state since 8:30 p. m.
Dr. Rlxey 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 S o'clock Dr. Rlxey
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

residents Last Word.
The President, In his last period of
consciousness, which ended abcut
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
By -10 o'clock the pulse could no

they grew cold.

Assassin Ciolgosz Breaks Down end Make a
New York, Sept. 12. A special to
the Herald from Buffalo says: Leon
Crolgost has confessed to the police
that hia 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 Czolgoss 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

secret service. A search Is being
made of every sewer that underlies
the city, for It Is known that In one
of themi Is a package of papers con
taining details of the conspiracy and
the names of those concerned with
CzolgoBz In the plot, together with an
outline of Its ramifications.
In his confession Czolgosz told of
his attempt to destroy the written
evidence of 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 ot
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 attenfpted assassina
tion. Emma Goldman, Czolgosz, Abra
ham Isaak and Marie Isaak were in
consultation In Chicago on two occas
ions. Marie Isaak accompanied
Emma Goldman to Buffalo the last .

Buffalo and about the city by a mys

of the intention of Czolgosz to assas
