EPTEMBER 19th has passed into history as one of the saddest days of the
nation and of her communities everywhere. An itnmeuse assembly of
people came together at the court house at 2:30 p. tn., for memorial ser
vices. It was the president’s funeral <lay
Evidences of respect and loyalty were
everywhere visible. Business was generally suspended. Appropriate and beauti
ful decorations were made 111 many windows, and at the court room.
dresses were given by local citizens. J C. Cooper spoke on McKinley as a soldier.
He said, in brief:
"Turning back the leaves of history,
40 years ago we find that the Ohio school
boy, William McKinley, at the age of bS
enlisted on the nth day of June. 1861,
as a private in Company E, 23d Ohio in
fantry, commanded by Colonel W. S.
Rosecrans; Stanley Matthews was lieu
tenant-colonel and Rutherford B Hayes
was major. He was among the first to
answer the call of President Lincoln for
volunteers to suppress the great rebel
lion. His patriotism was genuine, and
he never felt prouder in all his life than
he did when General Fremont, after
thumping his chest and looking into his
bright boyish eyes, said, ‘You’ll do.’
Only the American volunteer, after the
searching examination, knows what it is
to be pronounceil the best breed of all
the earth. Young McKinley carried a
musket in the ranks for 14 months, ris
ing to the rank of sergeant. Many years
afterward, when governor of Ohio, he re
ferred to that period in these words:
‘I always look back with pleasure upon those 14 months in which I served in the
ranks. I was but a school boy, and it taught me a great deal. I have always been
glad that I entered tli-> service as a private ami served those months in that capac
ity.’ There was no more popular or braver boy in the regiment, nor did they have
atiy lack of fighting. Within six weeks after leaving Columbus, they were in the
battle of Caruifex Ferry, where they drove the confederates back and forth through
the mountains, were drenched with incessant rains, suffered for food and met the
roughest kind of campaigning. In all the four vears of McKinley’s volunteer ser
vice the battles and skirmishes came thick and fast, more than thirty in all. He
was never a day off duty nor missed a fight. Antietam ranks as the bloodiest bat
tle of that awful four years war. The heroic boy came out of this battle with a
lieutenant’s sword by his side. The rise was slow, but his promotions were well
earned. He was first lieutenant, captain, and at the close of the war, a major.
General Crook recommended him to appointment to a higher grade, endorsed by
General Sheridan. A few years ago, while
governor of Ohio, he delivered an ad
dress on the battlefield at Lookout
Mountain, during the national encamp
ment. It was a reunion of‘the blue and
the gray’ on that historic field. He
urged the veterans of both armies to lay
aside all thought of bitterness engen
dered by that terribie strife, and paid
highest compliments to the bravery of
the soldiers of both north and south. He
said: ‘No greater valor was ever shown
than that possessed by the American sol
Americans never surrendered’—
then pausing a moment, continued—‘ex
cept to Americans.’ The whole moun
tain shook with the tremendous ap
plause, veterans of both armies vieing
with each other to do the greatest honor
to tbe grand sentiment. They clasped
hands, embraced, and tears coursed down
many a scarred cheek and grizzled beard.
Afflictions though they seem severe, whether of divine intent or chance calamity,
make surer the fact that
There is no great path, whithersoever it be,
But somewhere leads through Gethsemane.
The people he served and loved are gathered in a legion places to cherish his mem
ory. None feel this sorrow more than do his comrades of the Grand Artny of the
Republic, and none will hold his memory more dear. When the last sad rites are
over and the final’taps'sounded above his grave, they know it is one more com
rade added to the ranks of the Great Commander of us all, undone less here, and
they too can sing, ‘Nearer My God to Thee.’ ’’
Rev. H. T. Atkinson spoke of the martyred president as a Christian. He said:
“The opinions of a great man always possess a peculiar value in the minds of
the people, and of those names which stand highest in history today, the most hon
ored belong to men who were never ashamed to acknowledge themselves as hum
ble servants of Almighty God. In this illustrious list will be included in the histo
ry of the future, the name of William McKinley, the honored president whose trag
ic death the nation so bitterly mourns today
In the true sense of the word, a
Christian means one whose life is a continual reflection of the spirit of the Master;
one who does justly, loves mercy, and walks humbly with his God. In this light
of the word. I am ready to maintain that our late president was in every particular
worthy of the name. Both public and private testimony conspire to show that his
life was modeled according to his faith in Christ, while a spirit of resignation like
that of his Master in Gethsemane was exhibited iu bis last earthly moments, as was
shown by the words he uttered when in the valley of the shadow: ’Goodbye, all,
goodbye; it is God’s way, His will be done.’ As a Christian he shared the hopes of
all who trust in Christ, and the parting from earth was made easier by knowledge
of the reunion to which his faith inspired him to look forward in the land of tbe
blessed, beneath the shadowless skies of which are gathered the truly great who
have preceded him from earth. As a Christian he has left a memory which will be

like light along the path of those who, as he did, are striving to walk in the path
of the just which shineth more and more even unto the perfect day.”
President Boardman spoke in substance as follows, on McKinley as a type of
the successful man. “President McKinley exemplified, in marked degree, some of
the elements of character which make for success. He thus becomes a model de
serving of study by those who hope to succeed. Strength of purpose may be men
tioned as one of these elements of his character. Had Mr. McKinley not possessed
a clearly defined purpose in his life, who supposes that he could have reached the
eminent position attained ? Prudence seems to me to be perhaps tbe most marked
element in this man’s character. He was a type of the conservative man. McKin-
ler was no radical. Cautiousness was conspicuous in all his political career. His
conservatism has often been the object of severest criticism. It nevertheless is true
that this element, prudence, is of greatest value in the well-developed and largely
successful life. President McKinley was an houest man iti his dealings with his
fellows. Business integrity no one has ever denied
lied him. Though many years the
holder of lucrative offices aud of such command!
_ 1 ___
opened easy access to large material spoils, he died a comparatively poor man.
This is one of the highest compliments which can be bestowed upon his life. Pres
ident McKinley was a chivalrous man. He was a knightly man. In his domestic
life he is said by those who have known him best to have been a model. In hie
devoted attentiveuess, under all circumstances, to his wife, always in delicate
health, he appears as the tender, chivalrous man. Iu this regard lie’ may well be
taken by our young manhood, too often thoughtless of these fiuer parts in charac
ter, as a model eminently worthy to be copied. The iufluence of a life, thus sue,
cessful, thus characterized, must be far-reaching in its good, now that the life as
lived here has passed away.”
’ ‘Nihil de niortuis nisi bonum’ is the well-known but exceedingly tender senti
ment nursed by centuries in regard to poor departed mortals. Let nothing but
what is good be said of the dead. Let no bitter criticism escape the lips. Let the
pall of sweet charity drop over the cold remains.” Such was the opening of Father
Hickey’s splendid address. The reverend gentleman portrayed the prosperous,
happy and in the main contented conditions of our republic under the late presi-’
dent’s benevolent statesmanship in comparison with the discord and broils and
restless conditions, the result of centuries of misgovernment and ruin reaching their
climax in the older nations of the world. The speaker alluded in very feeling terms
to the last wordsol Mr. McKinley, when, after bidding his wife and friendsand all
goodbye, he said: “The will of God be done,” and after a pause added, "It is His
way.” Here is a great guide and a great lesson for the country to adopt, he said.
The way of God, righteous, unchangeable and eternal, not the shifting, vacillating,
treacherous ways of man. His way leads to life; the ways of the world to a certain

at public receptions, or adopt the Arizona
method of checking weapons at the door.
There is no real sense in promiscuous
handshaking, anyway. It only satisfies
a false sentiment and tires out the presi
out the members of this order; in de
stroying the organization, preventing it^
meetings and suppressing its publica
tions. Furthermore, every believer in
the doctrine of anarchy should be made
to show good evidence of reform or else
be deported. If there is nowhere else to

«pot of the earth be sought where the
snakes and the vultures will make them •

that congress has not the power to rid
society of such a scourge. The people
with one voice demand it and we believe
that congress will find a way.

We notice in reading the personal

anarchy, that a number have the impres
sion that the wretched anarchists are very
rare. This is a great mistake.
every exchange that comes to our table
gives some account of seditious utter
ances on the part of some person in the
community, and the summary knocking
down or discharge from employ of the
offender. The latter act shows a healthy
public sentiment, but it is also manifest
Mrs. Nettie Burlingame and daughter
that rabid enemies of the government of Columbia county arc visiting Mrs.
are altogether too numerous.
An exchange says: “The despicable
lunatic, who with one hand grasped the
band offered in the spirit of fellowship,
while with the other be treacherously
laid low the one who extended it, is not
of himself, worthy of thought or atten
tion, but the spirit abroad of which this
dastardly act is the exponent, is worthy
the most careful attention.’’ The paper
does not mean what it says. The wretch
is worthy of the most summary attention
as a public example, and if the plea of
lunacy is made in his defense, no insane
asylum in this country is strong enough
to hold him. Indeed, there are but two
good reasons why his life should lie
spared fora moment from the vengeance
of a mob. Such an act would constitute
an endorsementof mob rule in all cases,
might result in the hanging of innocent
men, while all who have studied the
lofty character of Wm. McKinley know
that he would never endorse violence
that would destroy the diguity and ma
jesty of the law.
We admire General Nelson A. Miles'
position on this question of anarchy and
iiow to treat it. He says “I feel that
we have been lax in guarding the presi
dent. When you consider that three
presidents in 36 years have met the as
sassin's bullet, it shows that we are toe
free ip exposing the president to unnec
essary dangers. I believe that the pres
ident should be safely guarded, and that
he should not take part in public func
tions that would render him liable to at
tack from any anarchist and lunatic
that may be privileged to mingle in such
a crowd. As to the punishment of an
archists, I believe that congress should
pass a law which would inflict the death i
penalty for any attempt to take the life !
of the president, or for any conspiracy j
on the part of an anarchist circle against I
tbe office, whether the attempt were sue- I
cessful or not.''

the military for suppression, let it lie del
