Iluft'nlo, Wept. 14���Theodore Roosevelt, who today was tragically elevated to the Presidency of the Auiiricun
Republic by the death of President
McKinley, enteied this black walled
citv of mourning this afternoon after
a remarkable and perilous journey
from the heart of North Woods.. He
hail been President under the eonsti
tution and law of land Binco the
minute the martyred President neased
to breath. All the duties and powers
of ollice bad devolved on him but he
was as powerless as the humblest citizen to exercise one of them until he
had complied with the constitutional
provision requiring him to take a
prescribed oatli to support and defend
tho constitution and laws of the
United States Uo took the oath at

would recover from the wound inflicted by the assassin.
lluctors   Issue   Their   Report   of  the
Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 14. ���
The following report of the autopsy
on tho remains of President MoKinley
was issued at  at 5 o'clock*.
The bullet which struck over the
breast bone did not pass thiough the
skin and did little harm. The other
bullet passed through both nails of
the stomach near Hb lower border.
Both holes were found to be perfectly
closed by the Btitches but the tissue
around each hole had become gan
grened. After passing through the
stomach the bullet passed into tho
back walls of the abdomen hitting and
tearing the upper end of tho kidnoy.
This portion of the bullet track was
also gangrenous, the gangrene involving the pancreas. The bullet has not
yet been found. Thei e was no sign
of peritonitis or disease of other
organs. The heart walls were very
thin. There was no evidenco of any
attempt at repair on the part of nature and death resulted from the gangrene which affected the stomach
around tho bullet wounds as well as
Hie tissues around tho further oourse
uf the bullet.
Death was unavoidable by any surgical or medical treatment and was
the direct result of the bullet wound.

The official announcement of tne
Physicians as a result of their autopsy
on the President's budy that death resulted from gangrene of the wounds
led to much discussion of causes lead
'ng up to tnis gangrenous condition.
H developed that Dr. Wasdin, one of
the consulting physicians, and an ex-
peit of high standing in the marine
hospital Beivice, strongly supported
the view that the murderer's bullet
had been poisoned aud that this was
one of tho moving causes of gangrenous condition. The area of this dead
and gangrened llesh waa a source of
much surprise to tho surgeons, reach-
I ing a eiroumference about the size of
a silver dollar about the interna
Aside from the olli'ial signed statement the doctors were averse to dis-
oussing the autopsy but some general
expressions were secured on the point
involved. Dr. Matthew D. Mann, the
surgeon upon whom fell the responsibility of operating upon the President
Immediately after he was shot, in the
oourse of a cursory talk said: "First
of all there was not any contention
or use of discussion among the physicians as to the method of treatment of
a case similar to the present one iu
importance, ln no case was there ever
a better understanding ns to what
should be done. Wo worked together
as one man. There woro honest differences of opinion sometimes among
us as to what was best mode of procedure under certain oonditions but
the minority always were convinced."
"About tbe critcisms that were
made as to thc insufficiency of original examination and the failure to
locate the bullet at tbe time of operation, were they justified?"
"I think tbo report made today, "
Dr. Mann said, 'Ms a sufficient answer
to your questicn. I Bhows very plainly that the location of the bullet had
nothing to do with thc final outcome
of the ease. Tbat resulted from gangrene which appeared ic the path of
the bullets. Even our efforts today to
locate it, as stated in the report, were
unsuccessful. I believe it went into
the muscles at the small of the back.
We followed the hole made by the
bullet until it went into the muscles.
We soarched one and a half hours for
the missile of death. Thc X Kay instrument was not used, as the appar
atus was not handy. The serious
damage was done to the organs
through which it passod, not to tbe
locality where it now rests."
'Your report savs the first bullet
striking in the breast did   no harm."
'Yes, that is correct. That bullet
evidently st'uck a button and then
shied olf without doing any damage.
Had It not met some obsti notion it
surely would have killed the President
immediately. Below tne locality
where It struck thc fleBh was quite
ilabby and contused. Today's investigation developed the fact tbat the first
bullet struck the President on the
right side of tho breast bone near the
edge or betweou the second and third
libs. In our original examination we
said it was to the left of the breaBt
bone. The mistake in the first announcement was due to the veiy hasty
examination we made at.tbe time of
thc shooting, when the question was
not so much as to the exact locality of
wounds as to tbat of going to work to
save the President's life."
'The report speaks of a lack of ovi-
denoo of rapid work on the part to
natuic. Won't you explain just what
bearing tbis had on thu case at
' Hy that statement we mean that
the general system of thepatint failed
to re spond to tbe demand mado on it
for a revival from the shock suffered
by the shooting. It was probably duo
to allow state of vitality, not to poor
health, mind you, but to a system
that was considerably run down and
needed rest and recuperation."
"This report says the heart walls
were very thin. Waa this condition
peculiar to the President or is is common complaint? Did the use of smoking tobacco by the President have any
important bearing on the case?"
''A man whose heart walls are very
thin is usually one win. leads a
sedontary life and   whose   heart gets
heart was sufficient for hiin in his
ordinary business affairs of life when
no strain was required. When extraordinary efforts were necessary the
heart was unable to meet them. No,
I don't think the smoking affected the
President's heait to tho extent of
making it figure in the result in bis
ease. He was net a great smoker and
at one time we even considered the propriety of permitting him to have a
"It has beon suggested, Dr. Mann,
that the bullet which went into the
Presidents'abdomen was poisoned and
that this was what caused death.
Do you think there is any basis for
the report?"
' 'The authorities and the physicians
have received a number of telegrams
and letters stating that the bullet was
poisoned," Dr. Mann replied, "I
don't know w hethcr it was or not. A
chemical or bacteriological examination of the remaining bullets in the
pistol will be necessary to determine
that, perhaps both. All the tissues
through whicli the bullet passed wore
dead. This is very remarkable indeed. Tbe area of dead flesh in tbe
Htomacli wus perhaps as great as a
silver dollar in circumference. Dr.
Wasdiu the marine hospital expert,
was strongly inclined tn the opinion
that tbe bullet had been poisoned.
"Just a word in conclusion," said
Dr. Mann, "I think in justice to the
other physicians nnd myself something
should be said about the bulletins
issued overy day. We aimed to make
them as plain as possible and to state
the facts as simply. They wero given
a= hour to hour talks of the President's oondition, containng no expressions, not making any prognostications, simply a narrative of conditions made with a dosire to keep the
public informed trom day to day of
the actual stat** of affairs."
Another physician who asked that
his name Bhould not be used, said:
"As far as the treatment of the case
was ooncerned, both from a surgical
and a medical standpoint, it was successful. The abdominal wound was
fatal from the start. The physicians
should feel relived over the result of
the autopsy, because it relieved the
fact that tne abdominal wound was
necessarily fatal and that nothing that
was done or could be done would moie
than delay the inevitable result. The
flovemment, the family, and tho profession were fairly represented among
the physicians and surgeons making
the autopsy."

The members of the cubinet tbis

the early morning hours. With somo
of them lc seemed impossible to conceal their griof at the untimely loss
of their great leader and chief. Those
of tbem who could find tho heart to
give expression to sentiments in
tribute of tho desd President wore
succinct but unmistakable in thoir
utterances. Secretary Long with
great warmth and fervor, meiely said,
"He was a modol man and statesman."
Secretary Hitchcock was almost as
brief. He said, "It is an irreparable
loss to his country, his family,and to
all who knew him. "

Secretary Root was apparently overcome with grief. He spoke with the
same tremor that characterized his
words as he met the reporters outside
Milburn bouse last night aud informed them that the end was near. The
secretary of war said: "I can't seem
to find it possible to say anything to
the press at this time."
Secretary Wilson asked that he
might be excused from attempting to
give utterance to his sentiments. He
added, "I am too fatigued and the
death of the President is too recent to
permit me to express myself at

Many of the shops did not open up

can be no doubt that the attendance
of tho Duke and Duchess of Cornwall
and York would be received with
wraiii gratitude by the United States

King may well feel that such an opportunity of strengthening the good
relations of the two great nations
should not ligrtly be put aside."

With the passing away of President
McKinley Tboodore Roosevelt, vice-
president, under tho law of succession,
bucomes the president of the United
States Mr. Roosevelt is a strong and
forceful individual, imbued with progressive ideas and a firm beliover in
the doctrines of the Republican party.
He is an exponent of the latter-day
idea of imperialism, which at present
has such a strong hold on the younger
citizens of the republic, and in this
regard he will carry out the policy of
hii predecessor in the presidential
chair in relntion to the Philippines
and Porto Rico as much as it is in
the power j of a president to do so. So
far as the tariff policy and foreign
relations aro concerned it is reasonable to suppose thut his policv will bu
on lines'siniilar to thuse of Mr,. McKinley. President Roosevelt has
strong ideas of his own as to ciivl Ber-
ii'.e reform and other matters relating
t 1 the Internal affairs of the United
States which he doubtless will put
into effect as mnoh^as he can during
the nearly three and a half years that
ho will be   president.
Roosevelt, we bellevo, is the strongest and best man of the throe vice-presi
dents who havo succeeded to tbe presidency. Andrew Johnson succeeded
Lincoln in 1805, and disagreed with
Congress as to how the seceding states
should be allowed to return to the
Union and votoed bill after bill, but
Congress passed them over his veto,
lie tried to remove Secretary Stanton
from office and the house of representatives passed an impeachment resolution, claiming that he had violated
the tenure of office law, but at the
trial before tbe senate the action was
not susta'ned. It was thought that
.lohnon, who was from Tennessee,
sympathised too much with the soutli
and this made bis administration a
failure. Chester A. Arthur, who succeeded James A. Garfield in 1881,was more
ot a politician tban a statesman and
cut but a small figure in the presidential chair.
Mr. Roosevelt, when the time comes
for writing the history of his administration, will, we belie re, have made
a better reoord than either Johusun or
Tbat the death of a president and
thu installation o' a legal successor to
tho important place made vacant could
be accomplished with such little stir
and be looked on as a matter of course
in a nation of so many millions of people with such connecting interests as
there are in the United States
seems nothing .short of iciiiarkahle,
uud reveals that tho Anglo-Saxon
love of law and order and of obedience to the duly authorized and properly selected rulers and officials arc
among the better characteristics of
tlio people of the United States.
Roosevelt stakes the presidential oflice
without a single voice being raised to
question his right, legal or otherwise,
to do so. It was as much a matter of
course as whon the Prince of Wales
became the reigning sovereign of the
Hritish Empire upon the demise of
his mother, Queen Victoria, In respect to this loyalty to recognized
authority the British and the Americans have much that is common.

The Silvertonian of Silverton has
folded its white wings and suspended
publication. The publishers, the
Matheson brothers, said in tho last
issue that the act of suspension was
necessary as those of its readers who
had noted the dwindling amount of
advertising patronage bestowed upon
the paper would realize. The Silvertonian, it was further stated,has been
a losing proposition for its publish
ers for many months past and the end
of their string had beeu reached.
Then they say: "During our four
years in Silverton we have done all
that lay in our powor to advance the
interest o.' the community ; we have
taken part in tho occasional fight
that conio our way, uoither socking or
avoiding them, and always in a fair
and open manner. While we have
made enemies in tins way, we Hatter
ourselves that we have made many
moro friends, and that the Silverton*
ian has been a welcome weekly visitor
to many homos." The paper is not
dead, but only suspended for a time,
for in conclusion the announcement
says: "Wnen Silverton feels the
effect of the return to prosperity,
which is certain in the not far distant
future, The Silvertonian will bo ic-
vived. Thanking our friends for the
past patronage, we remain," eto.
The owners of the Slvertonian made
a gallant struggle to keep their venture a'loat but the times and the conditions were against them. They got
out a bright and newsy paper and
strugglud hard for a long time to
make it a financial success and finding that this waa impossible they
went down for the time being witli
their colors nailed to the mnsthead.
The paper was in every way worthy
of a better fate, It is earnestly hoped
that the Silvorlonian may soon be

official language, Cyprus speaks Greek

French is the official language along
with English.
Lord Strathcona is an observant individual and his place as High C0111-
missioiier gives him unusual opportunities for gaining a close knowledge of Hritish affairs, which aro far
better than those which the correspondents of certain sensational American newspapers wbo have been talking so glibly of late concerning Hritish decadenoe. Lord Strathcona recently said: "Enlgand iB constantly
progressing, and it is nonsense to
talk about her decadence or that she
is losing her prestige, either at home
or abroad. England ie all right, and
Canada should do all in her power to
help her, for the success ot the Old
Country means the success of tbe
Dominion of Canada."
The old role for obtaining one's
expectation of lifo���subtracting your
present age from 80 and dividing by
two���which has necn floating the
rounds of the newspapers for many
years, is no longer used by insurance
companies. The rule which was based
upon sn years as the limit of life is
now considered obsolete. It was
originated by Deomivre, whose name
it bears and was used in his treatise
on annuities, written in 1725. It was
at first deemed correct by insurance
men, and was used by the Northampton Company in 1780 in preparing
tables when life insurance was comparatively new. Hy these tables a person of 20 may expect to live 33 years;
one of 30, 28 years; one of 40, 28
years. According to the modern computation a person of 20 may expeot to
live 42 years; a person of 30, 34 years;
a person of 40, 28 yoars; a person of
50, 21 years, and a person of U0, 15 ;

(John llurtt Morgan.)
With the Christian conception of
God before us as, briefly expounded,
tne enquiry naturally arises. Hoes
such a iieing exist? II will be nuticed
tbat this enquiry goes much further
than the question, Is there a Ooii?
An atlirmative reply might be given
to the latter Interrogation, while the
formei might be as emphatically
negatived. I might bellove in the existence of "Ood'- conceived of as the
embodiment of creative force, the
great first eanso of the modern materialist or as the "universal divine
principle" of the pantheist, and yet
with either deny the exibtenco of the
God of Christian revelation. The
question therefoie, before us is this,
Is God "the personal Spirit, perfectly
good, who in holy love creates, sua
tnins aod orders all" a reality?
To many any attempted proof ot the
existence of God ��eeuis a woik of supererogation. Tbe necessity of suoh ��n
One to account for the phenomena of
the universe revealed to sense and the
facts of spirit presented in cons:
ciousness, is sufficient vindication of
the Kiblical assumption that bach of,
lieneath and over all. God is. Others
feeling that Ue must be, yet look for
a sytematio setting forth of reasonable
proofs upon which to rest their con
victions, while still others admit the
possibility of God'scxistence, but deny
tho susceptibility ol the proposition
to demonstration. Conscious of this
wide diversity cf altitude toward the
w hole subject, ono cun only present
tho considerations whoso cumulative
force is equivalent to demonstration
tc his own thought, in the modest
hope that they may piove of equal
value to some other.
To any who have thought upon tlie
subject it will not be nooessary to say
that spirit is not demonstrable to
sense. "No man hath seen God at any
time" expresses a fact necessarily
arising out of the nature of spirit and
the nature of the body, and must re
main eternally true. All proofs,
therefore, of the existonce of God must
be sought on the planes of intellect
and spirit. Moving in the ascending
scale let us look at our subject from
the intellectual stajdpoint. Here let
it be observed that our standpoint
determines the limits of our vision.
Man cannot preceive God with his
pylisioal senses because God is not
a physical being or an object of sense.
By the same law, his mental peicep
tions of God will be limited to the
mental aspects of the Divine Being,
and can oxtend only to the discovery
of Mind in tlio universe. This discovery may be traced mainly along three
lines, (l)the intelligibility of the universe (2) the idea of cause and (3)
the presence of ends in the universe.

The Wetmore Crew Won tbe Four-
Oared Kvent.
The fall regatta of the Nelson Boat
Club took place yesterday, the principal event being the four-oars which
wero won by the Wetmore crew.
There was a large vai iety of weather
during the afternoon, the only feature
of it that was at all regular being
tho wind whijh kept a choppy sea
The Mason and Wetmore crews were
drawn against each ether in tho drst
lnat of the fours. They were composed
of J. Patterson, bow, A. V. Mason, F.
McLaehan, Z. Ault, stroko, and W.
F. Mawdsley, low, F. A. Edon, E. S.
Tuck, J. A. Wetmore, strokes. Mason
got away at a 33 stroke aud Wetmore
hit it up to 33 whicb put him in tbe
lead at the Hist. He was never headed and finished with a length tu tbe
Tho second heat was between I.
Campbell, bow, P. F. llorton, II.
Loring, W. J. Bevan, stioke, and R.
McFarland, bow, J. G. Bunyan, E.
V. Thompson, W. A. Fraser, stroko.
Bevan started with 40 strokes to the
minute which pat bim well in the
lead as the Thomson grew opened with
86. The pace, however, waa too hot
for Bevan and he dropped to 34, while
Thomson overhauled him and won out
hy a good length.
About five o'clock, when almost a
gale was blowing and drops of rain
were falling, Wetmore and Thomson
got away for the finals. The Btroke
of both crews was around thirty on
account of tbe wind. Thomson was
the first to come into sight around the
end of the wharf and at that point
had a good lead. Hue it was very
tough vork bucking against the head
wind and both crews showed signs of
distress. Wetmore put fresh life into
his men when it looked as if it were
all over with him. They got down to
work and in the last hundred yards
gained two lengths, crossing tbe line
six feet ahead with a strong stroke
while the other boat was all out.
Among the minor events waB the

the Misses Gurd after an exciting
i ace.
The throe-paddle cancos brought
out llorton, Bevan and Wilson,
against Mason, McLachlan and Ault.
The cross lay under the city whai f
and both crews nearly carried it
away. Wilson, however, steered the
better course and won handily.
Mason's canoe made a bee line for the
club house as soon as it got clear of
the wharf and ueforc It was righted
the race was over.
The mixed doubles brought ont five
crews as follows, Mrs. Ueathcote and
C. W. Husk, Miss Pearson and Mr.
Bevan, Mrs, Applethwaite and Mr,
Croisdaile, Mis-i Gurd and Vivian
Gallon, Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Nichols.
Mrs. Heathcote won handily and Miss
Pearson just boat out Mrs. Nichols
for second place.
Then   it rained.
Thinks the Rossland Strike Will Soon
Be Settled.
Hon. C. H. Mackintosh passed
through the city yeaterday from Rossland en route for New York, whither
he goes on mining business. In
speaking about the condition of affairs
in Rossland be said that Henry Bratnober, wbo had been there for the
past week locking over the situation
in the interest of the new directors of
the Le Roi lelt for Spokane yestetday.
Mr. FrecheviUe the mining engineer,
who has been elected director of the
Le Roi, and wbo is coming for tbe
purpose of looking into the management of the company's mine and
smelter, left Liverpool on the Etrmia
yesterday for New York and should he
in Rossland by the end of September.
Mr. Mackintosh had no doubt when
Messrs. Bratnober and FrecheviUe
met in Rossland tbat the shovelers
would be granted the increase of
wages asked for, to wit, 88 instead of
$2.50 per day. As to the other matters
at issue he thought by mutual concessions that an agieement could be
arrived at that would be satisfactory
and that work would be resumed in
all of tho mines of the camp. Once
tbis is done he felt oertain that there
would be no trouble for a long time
to come. Mr. Mackintosh referred to
the statements that have been made to
the effect that he wanted the position
held by Bernard Macdonald and said
that he never aspired to such a position and would not under any circumstances accept it were it tendered under the most ilattering auspices. "1
have," he said, "mining business of
my own to attond to which keeps me
too fully occupied to make it even
possible to aoeept any position whicli
might be offered to me. Tho idea of
my taking Huoh a place is simply pre-
Governor Mackintosh left via the
Crow's Nest railway last night for
New York. Harold Ellis, hia private
seoretary, who accompanied Mr. Mackintosh as far as Nelson returned to
RoBsland today.
To a Miner reporter E. Titsworth,
of Hyde & Titsworth. stated yesterday
that in the wholesale fruit trade business was very brisk at present, Next
week will see large shipments of
plums arriving, and for the balance
of the month they will be very plentiful. Watermelons and tomatoes are
plentiful, hut with Ut tie demand.
This weok several shipmonts of
(frapes fiom Ontario were received,
which eommandod a roady sale ln
Nelson. Peaches and pears are plentiful but priceB are not as low as usual,
pwlng to crop shortages in the east
causing the demand for the best fruit
of Washington for export, so that the
fruit for hore had to be brought a
longer instance. Very little of the
Okonagan fruit is brought to Nelson
owing to the fact that it ia practically
impossible for the wholesalers to purchase it in carload lots, the ranohes
not having large enough orchards.
There was no profit in shipping in
small amounts of fruit and for this
reason it was found more advantageous to deal with the large fruit growers of the states.
An incident whioh shows the feeling in Nelson and surrounding district at the assassination of President
McKinley occurred at the Silver King
mine the other day.     When the newa
of the expected recovery of the late
President was received at the raino
one of the miners said be was sorry to
hear it and that be hoped Mr, Mc
Kin ley would not recover. The rest
of the miners were greatly incensed
at the remark and it louked as. if the
offender would bo roughly handled.
Captain Gifford, manager of the mine,
finally heard of it and very promptly
diBcharged the miner, Such an act'on
under the Biitish Hag and by a company that is entirely British is but an
indication of the feeling with which
the bereavement of the United States
is received here.

was done at the time of thc death of
Grant. Whether the Hritish Government will issue an official notification of mourning rests ohiefly with
King Edward.
Affecting scenes marked the announcement ofthe death the Ecuineni
cal Methodist conference.which passed
resolutions declaring that tbe whole
Civilized world sy in pa tin i ed with the
American people.
Throughout the length and breadth
of Europe feelings similar to those
evinced in hte British metropolis seem
to have evoked       Perhaps   the best is
voiced  by  the Vienna Nonces Weiner
Tageblatt, which says: "Tho ocoan
Is not wido enough to hold all the
sinypathy that is 6troaming from the
old world to the now." Several of
the Madrid newspapeis publish editorials on the death of the President
and all of them speak in words of
respect. Thc London Morning Leader
appears with heavy mourning borders and prints portraits and sketches
of the livoB of the late President and
of Theodore Roosevelt. It expresses
editorially the deep sympathy felt in
England and suggests that the only
appropriate exprcssun of national
sympathy will bo the holding of a
Memorial service in St. Paul's
cathedral. The Leader says: "Mr.
McKinley came of the stock which
built tho cathedral; he belongs to the
race whoso lead'rs are buried there.
We find no apter mode of emphasizing
the unity of tne Anglo-Saxon people.''
Lord l'aunccfoot telegraphed the Associated Press as follows: ''The
President will he mourned throughout the civilzed world, 1 am at a loss
to express my sorrow on public aud
private grounds and my profound
sympathy with the American nation
in its affliction."
Canon Duckworth of Westminster
counseled with Ambassador Choate
today with reference to the holding of
a memorial eervico in Westrainfter
Abbey on the day of the President's
Baron Alverstone, Lord Chief Justice of England, on behalf of the
judges of Great Britain, said today:
"May God guide the nation and lead
others to follow the high example of
the noble life set by him whose death
the world mourns."
Expression of sympathy are pouring into every American omhassay ih
Europe. The Italian government has
ordeiod the navy to half mast the
Italian flag until after tho funeral.
Buffalo, Sept. 15.--At 2.50 this (Sun

ters before the statement was given
out and could not be found afterwards. Nothing is known as to where
the prisoner is now confined. There
are two places where ho could be
taken to the jail or the penitentiary
and it is likely that Gzolgosz is now
in either of these places.
Chicago, Sept. 14.���Chicago police
after a week 's searching for clews
and of waiting for Buffalo and Cleveland authorities to show their hands
practically abandoned tonight the
theory that a plot to assassinate President McKinley was formed in
"We arc unable to discover, any
evidence of a plot," said Chief
O'Neill. "I can say foi mysolf, as 1
havo said from the beginning, that 1
have no positive evidence that thorn
was a plot In Chicago. There is not
a doubt tho Federal and other authorities have used their best endeavors in
this search. If all means fail we
must take in as reassuring ground for
believing that a plot did not exit."
