MR. MCKINLEY’S DEATH WAS MOURNED NOT alone in this country but in Europe with every sign of sincere grief. Special services were held in Westminster Abbey and messages came from every corner of the globe testifying to the universal sorrow for the taking off of a great and generous statesman and abhorrence for the crime by which this nation lost its chief magistrate. Thursday, September 19 was observed as a day of general mourning in this country. It was Mrs. McKinley’s wish that the final ceremonies should take place in Canton, Ohio, the city where Mr. McKinley spent most of the years of his manhood. Previously services had been held in Buffalo. The body was removed thence to Washington and after lying in state in the Capitol for a day was carried to the Ohio city and laid to rest amid the lamentations of the whole nation.
