What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Buffalo,Sept. 1C.—President Roose­ velt performed bis first official action as president in issuing the following proclamation: “By the President of the United States—A Proclamation: A terrible bereavement has befallen our people. The prosidout of the Uuitod Statos has been struck down; a crime com­ mitted, not only {against the chief magistrate, but against every law- abiding and liberty-loving citizen. “President McKinley crowned a life of largest love for his fellow men, of most earnest endeavor for their welfare, by a death of Christian forti­ tude, and by th e ' way in -which he lived his life and the way in which, in the supreme hour of trial, ho met his death, will remain forever a prec­ ious heritage to our people. “It is meet that we as a nation ex­ press our abiding love and • reverence for his life, our deep sorrow for his untimely death, “ Now, therefore, I,Theodore Roose­ velt, president of the United States of America, do appoint Thursday next, September ID. tno day in which the body of tho dead president will be laid in its last earthly resting place, as a day of mourning aud prayer throughout the United States. I earnestly recommend all the people to assemblo on that day in their re­ spective places of divine, worship, there to bow down in submission to the will of Almighty God, and to pay, out o f full hoarts, their homage of lo'vo aud reverence to the. great and good president whose death has saddened the. nation with bittor grief. “In witness whereof I have here­ unto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. “ Done at tho city of Washington, the 14th day of September, A.

Buffalo, Sept. 14.—President Mc­ Kinley died at 2:15 o’clock this moru- iug. He had been unconscious siuco 7:50 p. m. His last conscious hour ou earth was spent with the oue to whom he had devotod a lifetime of care. He died unattoudod by a minister of the gospel, but his last words wore a submission to the will of God, in whom ho believed, lie was reconciled to the cruel fate to which un assassin’s bullet had con­ demned him and faced death in the same spirit of calmness and poise which had marked his long and honorable career. / His last conscious words, reduced to^writing by Dr. Maun, who stood the cause of this condition there seems to have been a difference of opinion between some of the physi­ cians. T a k e n to W a s h ington. Miiburu House,Buffalo, Sept. 16.— Tho silent form of William McKinloy was born from tho city in impressive stute this morning und taken on its journey to the nutional capital. Mrs. McKinley was not awakened until after 7 o ’clock, when Dr. Rixby wont to tho room with one o f her at- toudauls. Sho had not slept well, despite the fact that sho is almost thoroughly exhausted aud that Dr. Rixoy hud given her a sleeping por­ tion. Tho first thing sho asked was a repetition of tho quory of the lust two days: out, a hush fell on the multitude. Then from tho column came the- mournful sound o f “long roll.” As it ceased there arose, clear and sweet, the notes of tbe beautiful hymn, “ Nearer, My God, to Thee,” The soldiers raised tho flag-coyered caskot on their sholders and moved toward the traiu as the band took up tne air of the grand old hymn, “O God, Our Help in Ages Past.” Tho special train which carried the remains of the dead president to Washington consisted of an engine and seven coaches. First was the combination car which carried the baggage; second was the sleeper,Bol- gravia, for the accommodation of the newspaper men traveling with the party; third was the dining car, Miles City, Sept. 16.—E. J. Mor- nell, wanted in Anaconda on the1 charge of embozzlement, was arrested here today on a telegram from Sheriff Conley to tho officers here. While the train was being searched Marnell, with two grips, got off tho front end of tbe smoker. Jailer A1 Kircher was watching outside and Conductor Rapelje, on being shown the descrip­ tion o f the man wanfed, pointed him out as probably the one. The officers not being sufficiently certain of his identity, however, followed him to Tetter’s restaurant and ate at fhe same table with him. Being satisfied by observing a cut on the thumb that it was Marnell, Officer Jackson and Deputy Sheriff Western placed him under arrest. He denied bis, name aod said he was never in Anaconda. Ho was taken to. jail and $391.75 taken from him. He gave his name to the jailer for the ’ receipt: as Ed Marnell, but denied-any connection with any crime. J H e/refused to be interviewed by tho press and would not talk about his affairs with the jailer. Ho will be held until the ar rival o f Sheriff Conlev Wednesday. at his bedsido when they wore uttered, were: - “ Good bye all,good bye; it is God’s will, His will be done.” His relatives and the members of his official family wore at the Mil- burn house, except Secretary Wilson, who did not avail himself of tho op­ portunity. Some others of bis per sonal and political friends took leave of him. This painful ceremony was simplo. His friends came to tbe door o f the sick room, took a long­ ing glance at him, and turned tear­ fully away. Ho was partially uncon­ scious during this, but tbe most powerful heart stimulants, including oxygen, were employed to restore consciousness for his final parting with his wife. He asked for her and as she sat at his side the dying president held her hand. H e consoled her and bade her good bve. She went through tbe heart-trying scene with the same bravery and fortitude with which she has borne the grief of the tragedy which ended his life. The immediate cause of .the presi- ent’s death wasggangrede, but as to “When can I see the major?” Dr. Rixoy told her that they were going to let her see him today, and then she lot her attendauds dress her, and at 7 :45 was ready for her light breakfast, which sho took in her room alone. At 8:35 several liguros stepped si­ lently out upon tho porch and walk­ ed duv.u toward* tbe carnage. Mrs. McKinley, robed in garbs of mourn ing aud supported by Abner McKin ley on one side and Dr. Rixey on tbe other, was tho central figure. To the surprise of all she walked briskly with her head erect, her face hidden behind her long black.yeil. So far as could be seen she sat erect and un­ supported iu the carriage. The slow and stately progress of tho president’s '.body from the city hall to the railroad station afforded the people of Buffalo a last oppor­ tunity to do honor to the memory of tho lamented executive. The hearse stopped in front of the baggage entrance to the depot. As the undertaker took hold of the door of the hearse to open itand the body- boarers prepared to draw the coffin Waldorf; fourth the sleeper, Naples; fifth tho compartment car, Hunga- ria, for the cabinet; sixth was the pri­ vate car, Olympia, for Mrs. McKinley and-members of the family; seventh the observation car, Pacific, which carried tbo remains o f the late presi­ dent. In this car a platform had been built and on this tbe casket was placed at an elevation which made it plainly visible to people at all sta­ tions through which the train passed, Pilot engine 408 preceded the funeral train by fifteen minutes to see thal tho track was clear. A t W a s h in g ton . Wa8biuglou, Sept. 16.—The presi­ dent’s body arrived at the Pennsyl­ vania station at 8:35 p. in. The squadrons of cavalry and a battery of field-artillery joined the memben of the cabinet and the soldiers and marines on tbe train, about 200 in all escorting tbe body to tho White houso. There it was met. by the specie! guard of honor, composed o f Lida ■ . ’ ■ 'i '-:V .Continued on SooondPass/ - ; ! r < (U*- . . 1 -• “ w. •'•'v--r. r-‘“* *«r* ' v ; - , Aft„ / - ( ¿ m i ;
