The Last Words of the President Before Crossing the
Great Divide.
Scenes Attending the Closing
Moments cf a Useful and
Noble Life.
Milburn   House,   Buffalo,    N.   Y
Sept. 14.���President McKinley died at
9.1S a. 111.
He had been  uneonscious since 7.p,1
p. m.
Ilis  last conscious   hour   on   earth
was spent with his wife,   tc whom lie|
of unconsciousness only to relapse
into another but in this period when
liis mind was partially clear oocurred
a series of events of profoundly touching character. Downstairs the tear
stained faces of the members of the
Cabinet were grouped in anxious
awaiting. They knew the end was
near and that thty had come to hid a
last farewell to their   ehiuftan.
This was about i; o'clock. It waa
an awful moment for tbem. One by
one the ascended the stairway, Seere
tary Root, Secretary Hitchcock and
Attoiney-Oeneral Knox. Secretary
Wilson was also there but he went
back, not wishing to see the President in bis last agony.    It was only a
devoted a life time   of care.
He died unattended by a minister oflmomentary   stay   of   cabinet   officials

ao humble submission to the will of
the Qod in whom he believed. Ill
was reconciled to tho cruel fate toi
which an assassin's bullet bad con-l
ilemned him and faced death in the
same spirit of calmness and peace
which marked his long and honorable
career. His last conscious words reduced lo writing by Dr. Mann, wbo
.stood at his bedside when they were
uttered, were as follows:
"Good bye, all. It is God's way ;
His will be done, not ours."
His relatives and members of his
official family were ut the Milburn
house, exoept Secretary Wilson who
did not avail himself of the opportunity, and some of his close personal
and political friends took leave of
him. This painful ceremony was sim-
Tlien they withdrew, tne tears
{streaming down their faces, and the
words cf intense grief choking in
their throats.
After they left thc sick room, the
physicians rallied him to consciousness and the President asked almost
immediately that his wife be brought
to bim. The doctors fell back into
the shadows of the room, as Mis.
MoKinley came through the doorway.
The strong faoe ot the dying man
lighted up with a faint smile as their
hands wero clasped. She sat beside
him and held his hand. Despite her
physicial weakness, she bore up
bravely under tl.o ordeal. The President, in his last period of consciousness, which ended abont 7.40, chanted
tbe woids cf the beautiful hymn,
"Nearer My Ood to Thee, "aud bis
last audible conscious words as taken
down by Dr. Mann at the bedside,
were, "Oood bye, all, good bye. It is
God's will.   His will be done." Then
pie.   His friends simply came   to  theL

noor of tbe sick room,   took a longing    M "    _,_   "a   nnm
glance   at  him  and   turned tearfully
at him and
away. He wan partially conscious
during this time. But the power of
heart stimulants, including oxygen
were employed to lestore him to cons
oiousness for bis final parting with
bis wife.
Ue aBked for her, the eat at bis side  gradually like a child in slumber.   By
and held hie hand. He consoled her
and bade her goodbye. She went
through the heart-trying scene with
the same bravery and fortitude with
which she waB borne the grief of the
tragedy which ended bis life.
The immediate cause of the Prest
dent's death ia undetermined. Hii
pbvlclans disagree and it will possi
bly iequlro an autopsy to finally fix
the exact cause.
The President's remains will be|
taken to Washington and there will
be a state funeral.
Vice-President Roosevelt, who now
s . oeds to the Presidency, may take
the. oath of .office wherever he happens
to hear-the news. The cabinet will
of oourse resign in a body and President Roosevelt will have an opportunity of forming a new cabinet if he
��o desires.
" T*he rage of the people of Buffalo
������gainst tbe President's assassin when
���they learned today that he was dying,
was boundless. Thousands surrounded
-the: goal and the police foroe of the
������Hy and two regiments of soldiers
were necessary to secure his protec
- tion.
Before fl o'clock it r.as clear to
those at the President's bedside that
he was dying and preparations were
made for the last sad offices of fare
well of those who were nearest and
dearest to him. Oxygen was adminiS'
Uied steadily but with little effect in
ki'iipii g back the approach _of death.
The President came out of   one peiiod
aftewards he completely lost consciousness.
His life was prolonged for hours by
the administration of oxygen, and the
President finally expressed a desire to
be allowed to die.
About 8.30 the administration of
oxygen coased and bis Dnlse grew
faint, very   faint.     He was sinking
1 o'clock the. pulse could no longer be
felt in his extremities and they were
Below stairs,the grief stricken gathering waited sadly for the end. All
the evening those who had hastened
here as faut as steel and steam could
carry them, continued to arrive. They
drove up in carnages at a gallop or
wero whisked up in   automobiles,   all
nteiit upon getting here before death
ontne. One of the last to arrive was
Attorney-General Knox, who reached
the house at 8.30 p. m. He was permitted to go np stairs to look for the
Inst time upon the face of bis friend.
Those present at this time were Secretaries Hitchcock, Wilson and Root,
Senators Fairbanks, Hanna and Burrows, Judge Day, Colonel derrick,
Abncr McKinley, , the President's
brother, and his wife. Doctor and
Mrs. Mary  Barber,   Miss  Mary Wil-
iaius, Mrs, MoKinley's cousin, the
physicians, including Di. Mcllurney,
who arrived after 8 o'clock, John 0.
Milburn, John N. Scatioher, Ilany
Hamlin, all of this oity, Secretary
Cortelyon - and a number of others.
Rev. CD. Wilson, a Methodist minister of the Onawanda, N. Y , church
was tbe President's pastor for three
years at Canton, called at the residence to furnish his service If needed.
Another Metnodist minister who has a
church nearby remained at tho Mil-
burn residence for two hours in the
belief that his services might bo
Av 9.30 Secretary Cortalyou.who had
been much of the time with his dying
chief, sent out a form*I notiee that
the President was dying. But the
President lingered on, his pulse growing fainter and fainter.
At li..is  p. in., when'  Dr. Janeway
arrived, the President was just barely
alive. There wbs no need for official
bulletins after this. Those who came
from the house at intervals told the
same story that the President was
dying and that the end might come at
any minute. His tremendous vitality
was the only remaining factor in the
result and this gave hope a ot biief
time. Dr. Myntur, thought he might
last until 2 a. in. Dr. Mann said at
11 o'clock that the President was still
alive and would probably live an
hour. Thus minutes lengthened into
hours and midnight came with the
President still hattlin. against death.
Secretary of Navy John 1). Long arrived at 12 06 a. in, iu time to see tbe
President alive, though unconscious.
At this midnight hour the Milburn
house was the centre of a scene as animated as though it were midday
although a solemn hush hung over the
great crowd of watchers.
Vice-President Roosevelt had been
notified early in thc day of the critical
state of affairs and word had come
from him that he was on his way in a
special train. There was no longer a
doubt tbat in the approaching death
of the President a compete change in
the executive administration of the
government wonld ensue. When Mr.
Roosevelt would take the oath of
office was wholly a matter of conjecture. Presidut Arthur took the oath
at 13 a. in., after the death of 3arfield
and in that case Justice Brady of New
York administered the oath. There
is no requirement that the oatb shall
be administered by a justice of tbe
United States Supreme Court,although
that procedure is adopted when cir*
oumstances permit. Without unseemly
baste, the cabinet will tender tbeir
resignations and the new President
will then be free to initiate bis own
policy and choose his own oabinet.
There is little possibility tonight
that Mr. RcoEevelt will get here. Mr.
Anstey Wilcox, who entertained the
Vice-President when he was here last,
states that the best information he
bad waB that Mr. Roosevelt would he
bere In the morning, and not until
late in tne morning. He said tbe
Vice-President would not be able to
reach a railway station much before 4
o'clock in the morning and this would
bring him here about 7. Mr. Wilcox
said in explanation of Mr. Roosevelt's
being so far out of touch: ''The
Vice-President was at all times very
optimistic and when he went away
was absolutely positive that the President would recover and that he would
recover rapidy. He certainly cover
expeoted today's result."
Secretary Long was deeply affected
as he came from the house at 1.45
o'clock He had seen the President
and had given his hand a farewell
grasp. He said there was no hope but
when some of the persistent watchers
asked hiin as to a tumor that the
President was dead he replied decisively: "That is uot true, he Is now
Washington, D. C, Sept. 18. ���The
foct that the physicians had given up
all hope caused some discussion among
the pnlbic men in the city of probability of an extra session of congress,
and of early changes in the oabinet
but the c-msensus of opinion waB that
no cabinet changes or important departures in public polioy we:*e at all
likely for some time to come and that
congress would not be assembled until
its regular session in December. All
tbe cabinet, the chief officials and the
beads of important bureaus, aeccord*
ing to custom, will tender their resignations to relieve the President of embarrassment but it is belieevd Mr,
Roosevelt will "follow the pieccdent
made by Pre��ident Arthur, after Garfield's death, and request them to continue in ofiice.
Some ot   the   cabinet members   aro
not in goud health and would sincerely welcome a relief from their offices,
but all would waive all personal desires and continue until such time as
they could be relieved easily,if indeed
they request relief at all. Under the
presidental succession act, a President
Decoming chief magistrate would have
to summon congress in special session
but the requirement doeB no apply to
a Vice-I'iesident succeeding to the
office of his dead President, and it is
believed, no extra session will ht
called in the absence of statutory requirement, as the three months intervening until December can be bridged
over without difficulty and theie is uo

William McKinley, 24th president of
the United States, was born in Niles,
Trumbull County, Ohio, January 2!',
184.1. Ou his father's sido his ancestry

family was Puritan.
William received his first education
in tlie public schools of Niles. When
he was nine year.*-' old tho family removed to Poland, Ohio, where he was
admitted into Union seminary and
persued his stndie-i until be was 17.
ln 1800 he enteied the junioi class of
Allegheny college, Meadville, Pa.,
here be would have been graduated in
the following year but for the failure
of bis health, owing to which, as soon
s he was able, he sought a change by
engaging as a teacher in the public
school. Ilo was fond of athletic sports
and was a good horesraan.
At the age of 10 lie becains a member of the Methodist Episcopal church,
When the war broke ont in tbo spiing
of 1801 McKinley volunteered and

A'as there enlisted as a private in the
2'lrd Ohio volunteer infantry. This
regiment was one of the most famous
of Ohio organizations, including an
unusually large number of noted men,
among them Oeneral Rosecrans and
President Hayes. Ue participated in
all of the eatiy engagements in West
in 18011 ho was promoted to first
lieutenant, and conducted himBelf
with gallantry in every emergency,
winning honors especially at Winchester.
In 1804, at the age of 21, McKinley
was promoted to the rank of captain.
He was assigned as ncting assistant
idjutant general on the staff of Oeneral Carroll, commanding the veteran
reserve corps at Washington, whero
he remained tlnough that exciting
periad which included the surrender
if Loe to Grant and the assassination
uf President   Lincoln.     Just a month
fore this tragedy he had received
from the presidont a commission as

William McKinley, twenty-fourth
piesident of the United States, soldier,
scholar, and statesman, succnnib.'d
t .is morning at 2.15 to tlie wounds
inflicted on him on September 0th by
Leon Czolgosz, anarchist. Tlie manner of the death of President Mc-
Kin ley, proceeded as it was by ovur a
week of agonizing pain, was a poor
requittal for a lifo that was spent in
thc service of bis countrymen, and
(lining which, no matter in what
cupnoity he served, whether as private
or president, he was inspired by
patriotism, unselfishness and a sincere
desire to pciform his wholo duty in
aooordance witli tho dictates of his
conscience. There is not a step in
his career,, as volunteer soldier, as
district attorney, as governor of the
state in which he waB born, as congressman, nnd a President-ami from
p. ivatc solder to president is a wide
Social gulf to cross���which was not
marked by an unfaltering devotion to
duty and a high ideal of what constituted that duty. While Mr. McKinley wbb not intensely brilliant,
si II he bad good judgment, was well
balanced, was gifted with unflagging
energy and incorruptible honesty and
it vas but natural that a man of such
character should win the good will of
the people and finally be usvanleil the
chief oflice in their gift. The people
recognized in him a safe, honest and
conservative man with whom the
business interests would be safe, as
the only radical changes that would
e.inie during an administration presided over bv him would be in lhe
direction of assisting that which was
already established and ailing instead
of taking away from it. Dis rival,
on the two occasions on whioh be was
victor in the presidential race, was a
man of icon-clastic tendenoles, an
advocate of new and untried doctrines, and inclined, on the whole, to
tear down instead of building up existing institutions. It was feared that
ho would attempt to revolutionize the
financial anil business alTairs of tbe
countiy and so tbo safer candidate,
Air. McKinley. was seleeteil for nresi-
dunt on both occasions.
Tbat Ihe lifo oi so valuable n man
ns Mr. McKinley should bave been
taken by so useless and ilesplicuhle nn
Individual as Czolgosz Is nothing
short of a shame. The law of compensation should run through all
things, but to simply hang a follow
like Czolgosz for slaying a man like
McKinley seems poor satisfaction
when it. is considered that one McKinley is worth far more than a wilderness of men liko Czolgosz.
The assassination of Piesldont McKinley is regarded with us deep sor-
I0W in this country as il. is iu the
United States and the deed of the as-
sassitt is execrated as strongly here an
it is there, fur it is fell, that ou the
free soil of tbis Continent there should
be no nourishment for the fnuI plants
of anarchism to grow and produce the
crimson blniBOms of murder. The
people of Canada have only expressions of sorrow that so good a man
should havo been so foully removed
from a sphere Of usefulness and condole wilh their American cousins for
tbe great loss which they hnve sus*
lained. They hope, however, that tho
lesson taught by the cowardly oil mo
will not bo lusl and thai the people ol
the republic will lake it fully enough
to heart to clean out the festering
nests in which   the   foul   doctrines of
anarchy are hatched, where murder is
counselled and where those whose
bands are stained with blood are ex-
r,Ited as tho Lord's annoiiiteil. The
republic should no longer be the
asylum of these tigers of society
Uncle Sam should sternly compel the
believers in tlie doctrine of anarchy
to " move on, " and with the belli of
Ihe other civilized nations, the members of tho guild of thugs could soon
be made to know that no countiy
will tolerate them aud an energetic
crusade would In a short time sealtei
ihe various bands anu render tholr
f iture plots against life futile.      That
such a  ci'iisiuio  will   be inaugurated

valiant soldiers too. The present
generation, however,has perhaps more
enthusiasm for imperialism than their
fathers, for the reason that the
strength, the glory,the vnstness cf the
empiie ami the honor of being a part
and parcel, an integral part, of it has
been brought more home to tbem than
ever. In the last forty years tho
various portions of tlie empire hnve
been connected by cables anil this lias
resulted in binding tbe colonies closer
than ever to the Mother Country. The
heir apparent to the throne arrives
loo, just after the limn when the
Dominion bad given active expres
sion to tlie feeling ot loyalty which so
thoroughly animates it lo by sending
contingents lo South Africa to aid in
putting down the enemies of the empire, nnd when tlie spirit of imperialism is fervid and anxious to do honor
to the. representative of the sovereign,
King Kdward.
Among the cities which will he
visited by the llnke and Duohess are
Quebec, Montreal, Oltawa, Winnipeg,
llegiua,Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria,
Niagara, St. John anil Halifax. ICai-h
of these cities will view witli the
othor in honoring nnd entertaining
their Royal Highnesses and ill making thoin feel that they are among
loyal and admiring subjects. It ivill
be a triumphal journey seldom paralleled in history, which will be :\
source of much pleasure to the royal
couple as weli as to Ihe people of
r.'tuadu. lt will be wiiriuer and more
fervid than was given to the father of
the Duke of Cornwall when he visited
this country, because of the changed
conditions mentioned  above.
The present trip is hut an extension of tlie journey which the Duke
and Dticbcss of Cornwall and York
mado on the occasion of the federation of lhe Australian colonies. Tlie
yacht Ophir conveyed the royal
couple to the antipodes anil they weie
given a number of splendid receptions
at the different ports touched at en*
route and ovations at tbe populous
centers in Australia. As warm as was
tlie hospitality shown the royal
couple by our cousins in Austialia we
believe when il, comes to entertaining
such distinguished guests that we can
even do bitter; at least that is the
spirit, which will animate lis in Ot*
tempting so pleasant a duty.
Iu the several Ovations which the
people of Canada will tender lhe heir
apparent and his spouse there will be
nothing forced or compelled about
them, as tbey will but be the spontaneous outpourings of loyalty on the
part of a patriotic people, who respect
the   sovereign, love their country and
lovere its institutions
It is next to impossible foi a criminal to escape arrest by flight in these
days of rapid communication by wire.
Even if he travels on tho fastest
trains the story of his crime anil bis
description am telegraphed or telephoned over the wires ahead of him and
long before ho can find a secure biding place the officers of the law havo
him in custody. Magnier, the absconding agent of tlie Nelson A Fort
Sheppard railway, who thought be
could steal SHOD and escape the vigilance of the officers of the law found
out bis mistake wlien he arrived at
Vancouver, after his hurried flight,foi
the news of bis larceny had arrived
ahead of hiin and he was taken inln
custody immediately on Ilis arrival
there anil now bo must answer for
bis crime. lie doubtless sees bow
shortsighted be w,,s lo have committed
the crime. Had he lleii south and
crossed the line witli his stolen plun-
dei he wonld havo been, just the
same, taken into custody and quickly
extradited, as under the treaties between the two countries it is a comparatively easy matter to extradite a
criminal from either countiy, as each
finds it to its advantage to make the
process as easy as possible for the
other, because ciiminals are constantly crossing tlie line in tlie hope of
evading tiie rigors of Hie law. Magnier was very shortsighted in arranging his llighl, as be took with him
his little boy and there ure only a few
routes by which lie could have gotten
oui of this section anil these were
so well watched that a man accompanied ns he was by bis son could
not hope to escape recognition and arrest. It was doubtless bis intention
lo go to some of the mining camps of
the nortli, Dawson, Nome or Atlin, in
the hope that he would be able io there
evade the search that woulil he made
for him, but even had be succeeded in
getting tn one of these places he
would have been bunted dowu and
No matter where tbe criminal hides
himself, except under extraordinary
circiinistances, he can lie found, provided those Interested in bis apprehension think he is Important enough to
make the effort.
Magnier's ease is another exempli li-
eation of the utter folly of ennie anil
that honesty is the best policy. He
is certain to be punished for his crime
by a term in tin* penitentiary and
when ho emerges after he nils served
his time he is forever a marked
man wilh the prison slain and thu
brand of tlio convict upon him, anil,
unless he goes to the other end of the
world when* he is not known, he will
never again have an opportunity given
liim of honorable employment, What
might have been an honorable uml

Milburn House, Buffalo, Sopt. 18.���
President Mcivinloy began to sink
shortly after two o'clock this morning
after a critical period of 12 hours
during which alarm and hope
mingled in the emotions of those who
surround him. Trouble began on tlie
pieeeding afternoon through the failure of the uigestive organs to perform
their functions. Tho necessity for
nourishment had boon pressing for
Several days and the partial failure of
the artilicial means had led to the
adoption of natural moans. Tho rectum, through which nourishment
had been injected previous to Wednesday, became irritated and rejected
the enemas. This forced the physicians to try and foed him through the
mouth, probably before the stomach
was prepared Tho Hist administration o[ beef juice through tho mouth,
however, seemed to agree with the
patient and the physicians were highly gratified at the wuy the stomach
seomeil to receive the food. The
break fane of chicken broth and coffee
given yesterday morning was spoken
of by all the physicians as strong evidence of the President's marked improvement. It was only when it became apparent late in thc morning
that this food had not agreed with
the President that the lirst genuine
anxiety appeared.
The pulso was abnormally high,
12(1 heats to tne minute. With a temperature of 100.2 it should have been
30 heats lower. The weakness of the
heart began to arouse serious concern.
Instead of growing bettor the President's condition after that grew
steadily worse.
The staff of physicians, augmented
hy Dr.Stockton, who had temporarily
taken the place of Dr. Mcltnrnuy, was
summoned early in the evening and
there was a conference.
At 8.30 o'clock iast night the physicians officially announced that the
President's condition was not so good
Tho probleinof disposing of the food in
the stomach was becoming a serious
ono and the danger of heart failure
increased. Digitalis and strychnine
were administered and as a last resoit
saline solution was injected in the
vuins. The physicians, after tholr eon
saltation and the examination of the
patient, oould offer little eneourugii*
ment. Ilu was very weak and bis
heart was bo feeble that they feared
least his lifo might go out at any
Dr. Mann and I). Mynter left for
their homes, their only reassuring word
was that they had not given up hope.
During this whole dreadful night
Mrs. McKinley know nothing of
the change that had come. In her
feeble condition it was considered
best net to inform her of the President's critical oondition ami she slept
peacefully In her room through it all.
As midnight approached the situation was growing critical. Calomel
and oil were given lu the President's
bowels and digitalis to quiet the
hoart. However, jnst before midnight
the President bad two operations of
his bowels which relieved him very
lnuo'u and the midnight bulletin was
more favorable.
It was believed then tnat the opening of the bowels would havo the
effect of alleviating the wild pulsations of tho heart. Ills pulse did
drop   to   120   and   tho   prospect   was

of Illinois, who is hore, issued the
following proclamation postponing
Illinois day: In view of tho serious
change in tho condition ot the President within tlie last few hours, it is
thought hert to postpone indefinitely
all arrangements aud exercises in
connection with Illinois day. If, in
the providence of God the President
shall recover, the State of Illinois can
show her interest in the Pan-American
Exposition and her rejoicing by naming another Illinois day. (Sgd.)

When the peoplo of Nelson awoke
yesterday morning and read that the
President's life was despaired of they
received the news with consternation.
The last nows of the night before was
that his progress towards recovery
was uninterrupted and suoh alarming
nows was entirely unlookod for. The
serious turn of affairs waa the sole
'opic of convsrsation on tho streets.
Hundreds of enquiries weie made at
The Miner Office all morning.
At half past nine the Spokane Falls

bulletin that Mr McKinley had passed away This the Canadian Pacific

but bad news travels faster than good,

ot'ior signs of mourning displayed.
Twenty minutes later Tho Miner
issued an extra which gave the news
of tho patient up to noon, Buffalo
time, and a general story of how the
night had passed nt the bedside
The nows was iocoivcd with great
satisfaotion as it showed there was
still a slight hope. All day anxious
enquiries were made and The Miner's

strongly democratic, and McKinley
was re-elected to congress by the narrow tuaigiu of eight votes. McKinley
oontinued his support of the policy
of protection, opposing with great
vigor what was known as the Morrison tariff bill.
At the republican national conven-
ioii in 1884 McKinley was an avowed
supporter of Mr. Blaine, He took an
active interest in the presidential
campaign of that year, nccoinpanying
Mr. Blaine on his tour through the
middle west. McKinley was re-elected
to congress in 1SN4 by 2,000 majority.
and In 1880 by a majority of 2,550.
He strongly opposed the tariff bill in*
trod ued by Mr*. Mil If, and was the
chief liguro, on the republican side, in
a scries of remarkable debates. It
may be classed as the opportunitny
of Mr. McKinley's life, and was
splendidly improved. On April :.'.
IsHS, he presented to tho bouse the
views of the minority of the ways and
means committee on the Mills lull. On
May 18, Ihe day the general debate
was iti close, he delivered what was
described at tbo time as "the most.
effective and eloquent tariff speech
overheard in congress." The scenes
attending its delivery weie full of
dramatic interest. The press of the
country gave the speech extraordinary
attention, republican committees scat*
ti'iml millions of copies of it, and it
every where tecanie a text book ot the
campaign. At the republican national
convention of IHss, McKinley wns
pressed to become a candidate for the
presidential nomination, but he persistently refused, laboring strenuously
' Hi behalf of his fiiend, John Sherman. Whilo be could not accomplish
I Sherman's nomination, ho preserved
1 bis own integrity and increased the
respect and condlier.ee of tho people
lin himself. He was elected to the
j fifty-first congress by a majority of
U.lOo. He was a candidate for speaker of this eongiess, but was beaten in
1 caucus on the third ballot by Thomas
I II. Reed. He became chairman of the
' ways and means committee. On April
10, 1800, he Introduced the general
tariff measure which has since borne
his name. Ilis speech in support of
this bill fully sustained liis reptatiim
as au orator.
In I8.111 bis district having been
gerrymandered again, McKinley was
defeated by 300 votes. In the Ohio republican slate convention of 1801 he
was nominated fcr governor hy nccla-
mation. Ho conducted a wonderful
canvas, and was elected governor by, a
majority of 21,500, At the republican
national convention of 1892 he was
niged to allow the use of his nnmo as
a candidate. lie replied that bo ne-
lleved President Harrison justly entitled to another term. lie asked his
friends not lo vole for him, but foT
Hai ri soil. Still when the ballot was
taken many persisted in voting for
him though his name bad not been
formally presented, The Ohio delegation responded -M lo two for him.
He challenged the vote, and r-ut himself on roi ord for Harrison, who on
the entire roll call received 53fi votes;
Bainel82; McKinley IK:;; Reed four,
and Lincoln one. McKinley moved to
make the nomination unanimous,
and the motion prevailed without oh
joction. After the loss of the light by
the republicans he gave up neither
courage nor confidence, Iu 1803, at
the republican convention at Ohio, he
was unanimously renominated for
llovcrnor, nnd was lo-oloctold by au
ovei cvholinning plurality.
(In the expiration of his term as
