In all the history of the country there
was never such an exhibition of univers
al mourning for » public man as that
which made the day of President Mc-
Kinley 'a funeral memorable. The most
impressive feature of the day was not
the funeral at Canton,profoundly touch
ing as that must have been; it was not
the formal public meetings, imposing as
they were; it was rather the unpremed
itated gathering of the people every
where in their churches, in a spirit ot
reverent devotion, and the nearly com
plete cessation of all worldly pursuits,
which was not the result of proclama
tion or ordinance but was a wholly
spontaneous expression of true senti
No public occasion can be recalled
when the abstention from business was
so universal Men who habitually dis
regard or evade the laws for the ob
servance of Sunday, closed their shops
without any command or invitation to
do so, as though moved by a common
impulse of sorrow and sympathy. It
was not a mere holiday; it was a day of
universal mourning.
Business and industry were suspend
ed in Butler last Thursday afternoon
while the funeral services were being
conducted at Canton, and onr churches
were filled with people assembled to
gether for public prayer. The largest
-gathering was in the First Presbyterian
at 3 p. m.
Revs. Oiler, Prugh, McKee, Worrell,
Barlow, Enterline and White occupied
the pulpit, and addresses were made by
Thos. Robinson, J. D. McJunkin, and
James M. Galbreath.
In the First Eng. Lutheran Rev. T.
B. Roth delivered a brief and pointed
sermon at 2 p. m.
In the morning at eleven o'clock
prayer services were held in the Epis
copal church.
At 9 a. m. in the High School chapel
the pupils of that school and 9th grade
assembled. Sect'y Corry of the Y. M.
C. A. read the 112 th Psalm and J. M.
Galbreath, Esq., made an address which
his young hearers will remember for
many days. He dwelt on the character
istics of President McKinley and his
inspiring motives.
"GOD and man have linked the na
tions together. No nation can longer
be indifferent to any other." Thus spoke
President McKinley at Buffalo the day
before the tragic attack on his life, and
a striking and impressive exemplification
of the truth of his words is found in the
spontaneous outburst of respectful feel
ing that the calamity of which he was
the victim has evoked in all parts of the
civilized world. It is marvelous, as he
reminded us, how modern invention has
brought the nations together, so that
news encircles the globe in a few min
utes, how swift steamships and locomo
tives permit ns to travel from one coun
try to another and from hemisphere to
hemisphere, how science and education
give us common interest and under
standing, how the products of industry
may be transported thousands and
thousands of miles to market. The rews
of thte great disaster which oyertook
President McKinley and the American
nation when he was [stricken down by
the Anarchist was flashed around the
world, bringing horror to untold mil
lions of men, whose sympathy has been
poured out during the past fortnight in
an unceasing stream.
"God and man have linked the na
tions together" not only in a mechanical
sense, but spiritually and intellectually.
Having learned to know each other
better they have found a common
ground for sympathy. They under
stand the meaning of affliction, and a
great catastrophe like this makes all the
peoples under the sun into one family.
Moral Tone of The Public.
A discussion of -"The Ills of Pennsyl
vania," by a "brilliant Pfennay 1 vanian,"
is a feature of the October Atlantic
Monthly. A perusal of advance sheets
of the article gives the impression that
the "brilliant Pennsylvanian" is well
informed concerning the political ills
from which this great Commonwealth
suffers, but that he does not go as deep
ly into a diagnosis of the case as be
might. His general conclusion is that
a corrupt public sentiment underlies all
the political corruption which astonishes
residents of other States. He supports
it with some significant details of how
business men, clergymen and fanners
are bought to do the will of the machine.
It need not be denied that the writer's
details are truthful. Everyone who
knows much 'of Pennsylvania politics
might duplicate the incidents mention
ed out of his personal knowledge or ex
perience. But it does not follow that
the whole people of Pennsylvania are
more corrupt than those of other States.
He who has intimate knowledge of the
politics of New York, New Jersey, West
Virginia and Ohio may also cite in
stances of the buying of votes in the
rural regions, the securing of political
endorsements from men of high stand
ing through the voting of appropria
tions and the obtaining of large funds
for political purposes and voting orders
for employes as a return for the grant
of franchises. Those things are not
peculiar to Pennsylvania, nor are they
condoned by the ordinary citizens of
this State.
The the common people
of Pennsylvania is as honest as that of
other States. The difference is that the
Pennsylvania sense of injury from the
things mentioned is leas acute—has be
come blnnted by frequent contact with
the evil. The mass of people in this
State are prosperous in spite of their
many political wrongs and there
fore more tolerant of impositions than
if such impositions made them feel the
sting of poverty. That is the difference
in the public. The other difference is in
the management of the machine. For
fifty years or so it has been marked by
unscrupulous ability of an unusual
order. The "brilliant Pennsylvania!!"
who writes the political ills of his State
is no more brilliant than those who are
primarily responsible for the trouble,
though he seems to have even less hope
of a public awakening than the political
bosses have fear of such a result.—Dis
As the new President takes tip the re
sponsibilities and duties that haye come
to him so suddenly, the good wishes of
the whole Nation go ont to him with a
confidence *hat should give him encour
agement and strength. Mr. Roosevelt's
bearing in the *)eri»>d of mourning has
inspired both personal esteem and official
trust. The country is assured that the
calamity it has suffered has left its in
stitutions unshaken, its politics un
changed, and that the government will
go forward as President McKinley would
have wished it to go, guided by a pa
triotic spirit, in the way of peace, se
curity and honor.
Rarely has a change of Presidents in
volved so little actual change in the ad
ministration as seems now assured.
When Vice President Tyler succeeded
on the death of President Harrison,
there was no immediate change in the
Cabinet, and Mr. Webster remained at
its head for two years, during which
time the Ashburton treaty was nego
tiated. The disintegration of the
Cabinet began, however, within a few
months and Tyler's administration de
parted widely from the lines that Har
rison was expected to pursue. Mr.
Filmore formed his own Cabinet
promptly, recalling Mr. Webster in
Mr. Clayton's place. On Mr. John
son's accession, on the other hand, the
whole Cabinet remained, and the breach
with Congress that followed was attrib
utable as much to the President's per
sonality as to his policy. It is not to be
forgotten that in Johnson's administra
tion the first acquisition of detached
territory was made by the United States
by the Secretary who had served with
The change from Garfield to Arthur
distorted partv leadership more than
public policy. Some changes in per
sonal influence are likely to result
from Rooesvelt's succession, but the
factional divisions as they were then
have been to a large degree obliter
ated, while the clearly ex
pressed purpose of the new President to
continue the administration of his pre
decessor without change shuts the door
upon the self-seeking intrigue that us
ually accompanies a change in the
Presidential office. There is no un
certainty about Mr. Roosevelt's reso
lute hostility to the doctrine of spoils.
Only the incapable and unfit need be
afraid of him and it is only for the im
provement of the service that he need be
expected to make new appointments.
The country is absolutely assured against
the demoralizing abuse of public pat
ronage and the mere spoilsman will have
little opportunity to disturb the new
President in his public duties.
The present members of the Cabinet
have all been closely associated with the
deserved success of the McKinley admin
istration and their retention in office con
tributes greatly to the confidence with
which the country greets its new Chief
Executive. It is to Mr. Hay that we
very largely owe that judicious diplo
matic policy that has gained for this
nation the respect of all the world, and
in harmony with Mr. Roosevelt's own
stalwart Americanism we may expect
this broad policy to extend more and
more the influence of the United States,
gaining new conquests of peace in se
curity and honor.
Mr. Root's wise and skillful guidance
of the War Department, which never
before, even in time of actual hostili
ties, held so influential a place in the
work of the administration, has proved
of the utmost value and importance,
while the most essential domestic inter
ests are reassured against any dJ°turb
ance of policy by Mr. Gage's continued
direction of the Treasury. At the present
juncture of affairs, these three are the
dominant figures of the administration
under the President himself, and their
presence in the Cabinet gives a convic
tion of strength ana security that is of
incalculable benefit to the nation, at
home and abroad.
Thus the country, as the cloud of pub
lic and personal bereavement lifts, starts
on its way again with buoyant confidence
"The good work will go on,"' said
McKinley in his last speech. The good
work that good men do is never lost. It
is an inspiration and guide to those that
come after them. We iiave each and all
a share in McKinley s world-wide fame,
in the legacy of his high example, and
each and all a share in the new duties
of to-day, to sustain and cheer, by our
own devotion and by our helpful trust,
the man on whom the cares of his great
office have fallen. —Ex.
IN 1880 a law of Congress was passed
regulating the Presidential succession.
Formerly, in case of the death of the
President, the office passed to 'the Vice
President, and from him to the Speaker
of the House of Representatives, where
the succession ended. Now the Presi
dential office passes from the Vice Presi
dent to the Cabinet, in the following
order: Secretary of State, Secretary of
the Treasury, Secretary of War, At
torney General, Postmaster-General,
Secretary of the Navy, and Secretary
of the Interior. As there was no such
office as Secretary of Agriculture at the
time of the passage of thiH act, he was
not included in the succession. T 'ith
the death of the President the office of
Vice President falls into abeyance until
the next election. The President pro
tempore of the Senate becomes its per
manent presiding officer, but is nc >t in
the line of Presidential succession.
Senator William P. Frve, of Main *, is
the President of the Senate.
Those Franchises.
It has been known for some time \
that negotiations have been going on
for a consolidation of the traction
roads controlled by the by the Mellon in
terests with those of the Consolidated
Traction Company.
Yesterday afternoon it was an
nounced that the deal had been closed
in Philadelphia, Monday by Andrew M. |
Mellon and that by ifs terms the lines j
operated by the Monongahela Street j
Railway Company and the Birmingham i
Traction Company are leased to the <
Consolidated Traction Company.
The deal is said to cover the new
charters obtained by the Mellon in- |
terests, and it looks toward the gath
ering of all the surface roads in and •'
about the two cities under the owner- j
ship of the Philadelphia companj*.
The interests connected with the
proposed elevated roads had no part
in the deal, but are of course affected
by it, as it means the combination of
all surface railway interests in oppo
sition to the elevated j' railway projects.
The immediate effect was a determi
nation on the part of the promoters of
the elevated roads to withdraw the
pending ordinances and discontinue
work upon. them. The charters will
be held, and if in the future the need
of better and ample rapid transit
| facilities is so keenly felt as to create
! a general demand for elevated road the
' work will undertaken.—Pittsburg Com

C/.oljjos/.'s Trial.
At Buffalo, Monday, a jurj was em
paneled and Leon F. Czolgosz was
placed on trial for the murder of Presi
dent McKinley. Czolgosz promptly
plead "trailty." but his plea was reject
ed, the law of the state not allowing it.
and his trial was proceeded with as
though the plea of "not guilty" had
been made: and the autopsy was de
scribed by the operating surgeons.
The defendant offered no evidence;
Judge Lewis made no plea for the as
sassin but suggested insanity; the case
went to the jury at 3:51 p. m. of Tues
day, and :!4 minutes after the jury re
turned a verdict of murder in the first
degree. The prisoner was remanded
to jail.
He will be sentenced today.

The Schley court of inquiry opened
with a three hours' session in Washing

objection to Admiral Howison as a
member of the court on the ground of
prejudice, supported by three witnesses,
was sustained by Admirals Dewey and
Benham and the court adjourned until
the seat vacated by Howison could »e

were called and the investigation pro
On Saturday and Monday the evi

were interrupted by the sudden death of
Judge Wilson, Schley's chief counsel.
Last Public Words.
President McKinley, on September 5,
the day before he was shot, delivered
before the Pan-American Exposition, at
Buffalo, his last speech. It was an ad
dress as broad and great as the occasion
required, and will now be read and
studied all the more by our people. The
following are his closing words, which
it will be seen are a prayer, not only for
the peace and prosperity of our own
country, but for that of "all our neigh
bors, and like blessings to all the peo
ples and powers of the earth."
"Gentlemen, let us ever remember
that our interest is in concord, not con
flict; anl that our real eminence rests in
the victories of peace, not those of war.
We hope that all who are represented
here may be moved to higher and
nobler effort for their own and the
world's good, and that out of this city
may come not only greater commerce
and trade for ns all, but, more essential
than these, relations of mutual respect,
confidence, and friendship which will
deepen and endure. Oar earnest prayer
is that God will graciously vouchsafe
prosperity, happiness and peace to all
our neighbors and like blessings to all
the peoples and powers of earth."

Tlie Amendments.
During the session of the legislature
recently ended, two proposed amend
ments to the Constitution were passed
which will come before the people at the
polls in Nov. One of these amendments
if adopted, will open the way for the
! enactment of registration laws and for
the classification of the State for elec
tion law purposes: the other will open
the way for the use of the voting ma
The Union Committee for the Promo
tion of Ballot Reform and the Merit
System in Penn'a was largely instru
mental in having passed the registration
amendment. It was formed with this
end in view, and the passage of the Bal
lot bill. Its efforts were concentrated
on these two measures. The Commit
tee has no interest in the voting ma
chine amendment.
Before the registration amendment
can become effective however, it must
be approved by the people. Its passage
by the legislature was merely prelimi
nary to the decision of a popular vote
whether or not it shall adopted. This
will be decided at the November elec
Even though adopted the amendment
will work no immediate change in the
election laws of the State. There ap
pears to be a popular misconception re
garding this point. Its only effect will
be to untie the hands of the legislature
and give to the latter power which it
does not have now. Until the adoption
of. the amendment the legislature is pre
sented from passing any adequate reg
fctratiou law by reason of the provision
of the Constitution to the effect that no
man shall be deprived of his vote be
cause he is not registered. This little
provision renders ineffective any regis
tration. The adoption of the amend
ment will bring it within the scope of
subsequent legislatures to enact such
registration laws as may be deemed
Nor again is it mandatory that any
such future legistation shall be passed.
The amendment simply makes such ac
tion permissive, not obligatory.
The amendments are in no sense par
tisan in their effect upon the tuture of
any of the political parties of the State.
They are advocated by leaders of all
the parties and antagonized by none.
Personal registration laws are even now
in operation in New York and Massa
chusetts. It is only a question of time
when they will have to be accepted in
Pennsylvania, and the registration
amendment will open the way for them.
