Funeral Train Passes for 12
Hours Through Lanes of
Sorrowing People.
Washington, Sept. 10.���-Through a
living lane of people Btretching fiom
Buffalo up over the Allegbenics, down
onto the broad vail y nl Susquehanna
and on to tins mntble city on the
banks ol Hhinfng Potomac, tin
marly ied President today made his
last journey to this r;ty, over which
he presided for four ami one half
yeurs, The whole ci in try r-eeiued to
have sent its population to the sidei
of the track over which the funeral
train passed. The linos through the
mountains and the spnrs.'ly settled
districts, thickened nt the liltle hamlets, covered acres in towns suddenly
giown to tlie proportions of respectable cities and were congested into
vast ;n ti Hit lull's in the larger cities.
Work was suspended in Held, mine
and city. The schools were dismissed
and everywhere appeared the trappings and tokens of woe. A million
tlags al half mast dotted hillside and
vale and formed a thicket uf culm-
over the cities. And from almost
every banner streamed a bit of crepe
Thi stations were heavy with the
black symbols of mourning. At all
the larger towns anil cities afttr the
train got into Pennsylvania, militia-
nion drawn up at "Present Arms,1'
kept back the enormous crowds.
The silence with whicli the countless thousands viewed the 1 'mains ol
their hero and martyr was oppressive
and profound. Only the rumbling ol
train wheels, thc sobs from men and
women witn liar stained faces and
the doleful tolling of chinch and
other bells broke on the ear. At several places, Williaiuspui't, llarrisberg
and Baltimore, the chimes played
Cardinal Newman's gtand hymn.
Taken altogether the journey home
was the most rcmaikalile demonstration of universal personal sorrow
since Lincoln was borne to bis grave.
Every one of those who came to
pay their tribute to the dead had an
opportunity to catch a glimpse of the
Hag covered bier elevated to view on
the car at the rearof the train. There
was no othor bit of color to catch the
oye on this train of death. The locomotive was shrouded in black, the
curtains of cars in which sat the
lonely stricken widow, relatives,
cabinet ministers, and bearers, were
drawn. The whole black train was
liku a shuttered house, save only the
hindmost car in which the body lay
guarded by soldiers and sailors. Mrs.
McKinley stood the Uip bravely. ln
tlie morning soon ufter leaving
lluffalo, she pleaded su earnestly to
bo allowed to go into the car where
her dead one lay, that reluctant assent was'givun and she spcut half an
hour beside the collin.
All the wuy the train wus proceeded
about 15 minutes by a pilot engine
sent ahead to lest the hildgeound
Switches an I prevent tho possibility
of accident to tne precious burden it
carried. Thu train had the right of
way over everything. Nut a wheel
moved on the Pennsylvania road system thirty minutes before the pilot
engine was due, or for the same
length of time after the train bad
passed. Ueueral Superintendent ,1.
II. Hutchinson had sent uut explicit
instiuotions coveting overy detail.
The order concluded, "Kveiy Precaution must be taken by all employees
I-) make the movement absolutely
Tht train left UulTulo nt B.80 this
morniug anil arrived at Washington at
N.M p. m. tonight. In IS hours it is
estimated over half a million peoplo
saw the coffin which held ull that was
nioital or President McKinley.
The remains of President McKinley
tonight lie In the east 100111 of the
White House where fin mure than
four years he bad inailn his homo as
the chief magistrate of the great
American Republic.
The silence that marked the progress of fuiiciil party through tho
national oapltol was profound. The
people on a wholo   did not lalk,    even
in whispers, and the only sign of agitation in the great crowd was the
silent pressing and striving against
the ropes to sec the mournful cortege
Which swept slowly along. At the
Pennsylvania railroad station men in
bright uniforms gathered, a mixture
uf soldiers and sailors, and with
lowered voices talked in groups while
waiting to take up their parts in the
ceremony. Krom tho brigader general
and naval captain down to the humblest figure, every officer on duty in
the capital was there save a few of
high rank vrho composed the guard
of honor and waited at the White
Presently in dead silence the two
troops of cavaliy from Fort Meyers
swung from Pennsylvania avunue into
Sixth street. Then came Secretary
Hav, Secretary (luge and Acting Secretary Sanger aid Commissioner McFarland and a few subordinates
privelegcd to enter the space within
the station.
The traiu was due at 8.25 bnt tho
clock stood at S.ilil when the big loco*
motive rushed along the rails and the
cars swept quietly to a stop at the
gates. They wero met at the entrance
of Observatory street by leading
clllcinls while down tho pathway
stood a body of stalwart soldiers and
sailors and militia as the body
Meanwhile further down tho street
the party on the funoial train were
alighting. Secretaries Hay and Gage
had pressed forward and entered the
car where the mourners sat and assisted tbem to descent. Mrs. Mc
Kinley wuh aided by Abrer McKinley
and Dr. Rixey and was separately
placed in a carriage which drove olf
at once to the White House. Close
behind came the members of the family
of the late President who likewise
were drivon away immediately to tbe
executive mansion. Mrs. Kinley was
deeply veiled. She appeared to bear
up with fortitude but leaned heavily
on the arms of her supporters.
President Roosevelt came next.
Ilis arm was closely clasped by Capt.
Cowlcs of Now York his brother-in-
law who walked rather hastily along
between the files of olliccrs to the
carriage way next to the gates of
the station. Just beyond the entrance
to the station, President Roosevelt
with the members of the cabinet
paused and hud taken up a position bo
as to leavo a broad space for the
funeral cortege. They ranged themselves on the sidewalk in double rows
opposite each other snd stood with
larinl heads as the corpse was carried
to the hearse drawn up at the side of
tho gate. The bearse was an exquisitely carved affair and was drawn by
six black horses, each of which wan
led by u colored groom in black
Just as the body was being placed
in the hearse au incident ocurred that
caused a murmur of disapprobation.
A photographer from a nearby window suddenly flashed a light for the
purpose of obtaining a reproduction
of the scene. Tho flash light and accompanying noise made people shudder. President Roosevelt seemed to
be momentarily much disconcerted.
The hearse bearing the body of the
thiid martyred president moved away
and was followed at once ty President
Roosevelt and those accompanying
him. In the President's carriage,
beside Mr. Roosevelt were Secretaries
llay and Oage, Capt. Cowles. Secretaries Root and Hitchcock, Attorney-
General Knox ai.d Postmaster General
Smith followed in another carriage
while Secretary Wilson, Secretary
Coitelyou, Seeretary Long and Senators Hanna and Fairbanks drove behind in other carringcii. The citizens
committee from lluffalo, ofllcers of tbe
army and navy and friends followed.
The military already wero in line. A
platoon of mounted police ln command of Sergeant Matthews led tbo
way. Next came a delegation of G.
A. It. men from the department of the
Potomac, members of the, United
Veterans Association and the Spanish
war veterans and troops "I" and "L"
of the 11th Caavlry from Foit Meyers,
Va. Following Ihe CHvalry was the
hoarse tlankel on either side by the
body bearers. The carriages containing the distinguised ofllcers were next
in line, that of President Roosevelt
being immediately behind the signal
corpse. It was about 11.30 when tne
head of the procession reached tbe
White House grounds and tnrred into
the driveway. The body was imme
dialely placed in the place prepared
for it in tho White liouse.

mineral, agricultural and industrial exhibition. Ilo was seen yesterday by a Miner representative and
said: "The fair opens uu the 2.1tli
and closes on the 27th. The people of
East Kootenay are working as one
man to make the fair an unqualified
success. The mineral exhibit will be
one of the largest ever gathered together in the Kootenays nnd will include specimens from East and West
Kootenay and the Boundary, The
first day, the Mill, is exhibition day
and on the'.'(ilb and 2?*h there will
be a large programme ol sliced events.
In this connection Cranbrook claims
to have the best half mile track in the
province. It is level as a floor and it
is anticipated that good time will be
made upon it. There will be a show
of sume sort each evening. An interesting exhibition of lnonco busting

on the 25th. The rock drilling contest on the 25th promises to be an interesting feature. Tne C P. K has
made a cheap rate, the fare for the
round trip from Nelson being 84.80.
In speaking about tbe smelter Mr.
Hutchison said, All eyes are turned
on Marysville as a smelling point.
The effect of the construction of a
smeller at this place cannot fail to be
beneficial to tbe whole district, for
the reason tbat it cuts off the long
haul on the silver-'cad ores and further on we hope to have a gold-copper

Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. Hi.���Leon
Czolgosz, alias Fred Nieman, was indicted this morning by the county
court grand jury for the crime of
niiirdor in the first degreP, in fatally
shooting President William McKinley
at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-
American exposition grounds, at 4.15
o'clock on the afternoon of September
lith. When arraigned befoie Judge
Edward K. Emery in the county court
at 5 30 p. m. the prisoner stubbornly
refused to answer questions repeatedly
asked oi him by Distiict-Attorney
Penney as to whither he had counsel
or wanted counsel. The district attorney then suggested that inasmuch
as the defendant refused to answer,
counsel should be arranged. Judge
Emory assigned Hon. Leon L. LewiB
and Hon. Robert C. Titus, foimerly
supreme court justices of this city
whose names had been suggested by
the Erie county bar association.
Czolgosz will probably be arraigned
again in the morning to plead to the
District Attorney Penney presented
the evidenoe in the muider case to the
grand jury from 10 o'clock in the
morning until a few minutes past 4
o'clock in the afternoon. Aside from
the surgeons and physicians in the
case, no witnesses were sworn other
than those who were in the Temple
of Music and witnessed the shooting.
At 4.16 thi�� evening, just ten days
after the shooting, the grand jury
voted unanimously to indict Czolgosz
for murder in the first degree. At
4.45 a secret indictment was presented
to Judge Emery in the county court.
Then ensued a wait of an hour, but
tbe rumor that tho murderer was to
be arraigned spread and in a short
time the courtroom was crowded.
After the indictment was reported
the prisoner was driven from the penitentiary, a mile from the city hall, to
the jail across the Btreet from the
hall. Czolgosz was taken under a
strong guard from the jail, through
the tunnel under Delaware avenue to
the basement of the city hall nnd up
the stairs to the court room in tbe
second floor. When tbe prisoner was
taken before the bench the crowd in
the court room surged about hiin on
all sides. They were compelled to resume tbeir seats.
Czolgosz Ib of medium height, of
fairly good build and has light bair,
but a ten days' growth of heard on his
face gave bim an unkempt appearance
Apparently he feigned insanity, not
stupidity, and his glance roamed
about,but his eyes were always down
cast. Not once did be look the
county prosecutor or the judge in tbe
"Czolgosz, have you got a lawyer?
Ho you wish a lawyer? You have
been indicted for minder in the first
degree, do you want a lawyer to de-
lend you? Czolgosz, look at mc and
District Attorney Penney fired these
questions at the prisoner, his voice
rising with each succeeding question,
but Czolgosz stubbornly refused to
answer. The district, attorney re
apeetlully suggested that counsel bo
assigned to defend the prisoner, and
ascertain what he had better do as to
bis plea to the indictment before
arraignment. Judge Emery then
asked the prisoner before the bar if be
bad counsel but there wns no answer,
despite the fact that the judge was
speaking, and that ho must answer
the court, then said, "Czolgosz, you
have appeared for arraignment in the
court without counsel, the law makes
it the duty of court to assign counsel.
The association of our county has considered the matter and suggested the
names of certain gentlemen of good
character for such assignment. The
court has seriously considered the
question and after suoh consideration
has concluded to follow tbe suggestion
chell and several deputy slierill's. The
prisoner wtis huiried down stairs and
into the jail across tlin avenue.
Whether he was left thero for the
night or taken elsewhere the police
refused to say. District Attorney
Penney stated as he left the court
room that Justices Lewis and Tine.
would lie given an opportunity to
talk with tho prisoner and that ho
hoped to arraign Czolgosz tomorrow
to take his ['lea to the Indictment,
The district attorney will also set the
trial of the prisoner for next Mi inlay
at about ten o'clock.

I he doctrines taught by the an
archist are of a moat dangerous and at
t ,h same tune most fallacious natiir
Tncy hold in effect that no privileged
class ever relinquished its tyranny, no
more, they say, can they take it for
granted that the capitalists of tho
present day will forego their privilege
and their authority without compulsion, They, therefore, hold Ibat the fight
of the proletariat against the upper
and the middle classes must bo of a
violent character and that wage con-
tlicts can never load to tbe goal wine!
they are striving to reach. They
further hold that all attempts that
hare been made in the past to do away
with the existing social conditions
through peaceful means, like the
ballot, have been useless aud that
tbey will be so in tbe future.
The anarchist would enueavor to
produce an impossible utophia by
menus of murder, but carry out hie
ideas to a logical conclusion aud what
would result���a condition of affairs
similar to that which attained in
France during the French revo'utinn
with such monsters as Danton, Marat
and Robespierre as the leading spirit
and directors of public atl'airs. In
that case the people changed the
tyranny of a king for thut of a mob,
it was a case of jumping out of the
frying pan into the fire with a vengeance; naturally there followed the
strong man in tho shapo of Napoleon
who seized the reins of power and became a dictator.
The governments of the world have
gradually grown better among the
civilized nations and with this desirable change comes an increase of individual freedom. (Ireat Hiitaln ami
its colonies and the United States
have probably thc most perfect forms
of government yet devised by man.
They are not quite perfect, however,
aa everything devised anu operated
by man sharos in his imperfections,
but under both the Britisli and American flags the individual enjoys the
largest share of liberty ever given in
any country and a majority of the
people are prosperous and happy. The
anarchists aro not satisfied even with
these governments,but could not givo,
if thoy had there own way, anything
that would be nearly as perfect nor
under which there would be as ma.13
happy, contented and prosperous
people. If their dangerous idea*
could be carried out to a logical conclusion thoy would simply result in a
repetition of the French revolution,
with perhaps slight modifications.
Their principal platform is force and
that was the same idea that brought
many thousands of the best people of
France to tne guillotine.
Tbo follow iug, said to bo the plat
form of the anarchists, shows how impossible tbeir ideas arc of mccution :
' 1, Destruction of existing class
domination through inexorable revolution in international activity.
"2. Tho building of a free society
011 communistic organizations or
' 1. Free exchange of equivalent
products through tho productive orgs /.atiou without jobbing and piulit
nn I   ng.
. Organization of the educational
s.i ui upon a nonrcligious, scientific
in... ciiual busis for both sexes
".",. Equal rights for all, witltuut
distinction of sex or religion.
"6, The regulation of public affairs
through agreement between the independent communes and confederacies."
The oxtent of the coal measutes of
Britiih Columbia are just commencing to be appreciated, and that they
arc a most valuable asset cannot successfully be contradicted. This is evi
dnnced by the output of 1900 which
reached the large aggregate of 1,430,-
5115 tons, valued at , I,.118,785, Resides
this there was 173,795 tons of coke
produced, valued at 1808,980. The
coal industry furnished employment
tu a small army of men besides bringing considerable money into tbe
province from other countries which
purchased both coke and coal.
It is gratifying, therefore, to note
that new coal measures are being
opened and that others are to be ex-
plotted. Recently about :i5,l)0O acres
of coal land was taken up principally
by the enterprising citizens of   Urand

the coal in these measures revealed
that it is of excellent quality, and
now the news comes that the Granby
Consolidated Mining .V. Smelting
company is about, to develop the deposits. In the Siinilakmeen there exists a coal basin of considerable extent and the land iu lliis basin was
all taken up seveial months since by
those who recognized its value.
Among the fortunate holders nf this
land is a Nelson syndicate which intends to Immediately begin lo open
the cnnl soama on ils holdings. Besides
the Nelson concern others have already commenced in a small way to
develop their Blmilkamoon coal holdings.
The Boundary and the Sniillkamoen
measures are in juxtaposition to vniu-
anle ore deposits and where oie, flux
and fuel aro close together there exists ideal conditions for cheap reduction by the smelting method. Under
the circumstances the production ot
conl in the two places mentioned is
certain to play a most important pait
in the development of the lnetalifer*

The Cleveland Leader says that the
development of sixty oases of typhoid
fever among the one huudred persons
who attended a banquet at Hiram,
several weeks ago, aud drank water
from a long unused well, is a startling confirmation of tiie well established theory that water is the very
best medium, if not thu only ono by
which the germs of this disease may
be introduced into the human system.
It should aiso serve as a warning to
the people against drinking water
that is not known tn be free from
disease _fcrins.
Labor saving machinery is being
introduced in the handling of ores in
this section as much as possible in
unlet' to swell profits. line of the devices much in lise for the cheap and
economical handling of ore is tin
wire ropo tramway. One of these
tramways, constructed by a Nelson
lirm, is i:: use at the Lu Roi mine and
transports the ore from the mouth nf
the main shaft tu tho ore hunker
locatod at the railway track. This
tramway handles in ten hours from
1,11110 to 1,000 tons of oro and the only
labor required is ono man who receives !fl per ilay. The machinery
works automatically and all the man
iu charge has to do is to see that there
are no hitches and that tbo buckets
are properly loaded. The Silver Ilill

The Strike  in   the   Winnipeg Mine���
The Postofiice liuildiog, Etc.
Robert Hodge, barrister of Rossland, was in the city yesterday, looking after legal matters in connection
with the coming assize court, which
sits in Nelson and Rossland in
Oatober. He reports tbat iroin present
appearanoea it would seem tbat there
is nothing to interfere with the big
mines in Rossland being ull working
by the 1st of November. A cablegram
from the Le Roi Mining Company to
Mr. Bratnober, as reported on Saturday morning, would seem to him to
destroy the hope that has been buoying up the members of tbe union for
some time.
In speaking about tbo business
affairs of Rossland he said that in
professional matters business is good
and bas been throughout the time of
tho strike,although it is more difficult
to get payments on account. lie also
said that be gathers from conversatins
with several of the merchants of the
city tbat business with tbem has
beei, far beyond expectations, eonsid
cring the times, and tbey all lay stress
on the tact that since tho Btrike commenced they got cash for their goods.
Thoy "nave weathered the strike so far
a great deal better than they antici
patod when it commenoed.
In mining matters the latest to raise
excitement in the RoBsland camp is
the Winnipeg mine of which Richard
Plwman is the manager. This mine,
while located in tha Boundary
country, is operated from Rossland
and considerable of the stock is held
thero. Some five weeks ago a couple
of very important strikes were made
and the shipment of ore wero recommenced after a cessation of several
months. The results of these shipments, although not yet definitely
reported to the publio, have heen very
gratfying to the direotors. A week
since Winnipeg stock could have been
picked up at from three or four cents,
on Saturday lust it sold as high as
eight cents with 0!-; cents asked at
the close. If present appearances
hold out, and there is nothing to indicate that they will not, this will bo
one of the large properties of the
lioundary district. The shipments
last week were BOmewhat interfered
with on account of time being consumed in erecting platforms for the
more convenient handling   of the ore.
The high school, which opened some
two weeks ago in Rossland is reported
to be flourishing. Woik on the post-
office building at Rossland, said Mr.
Hodge, is making far. better progress
thar is the one in Nelson. The Rossland contractor expects to have tbe
roof on the structure before the snow
Hies and this will enable him to continue his work during the winter. It
will be a handsome structure when
