M’Kinley Memorial Association

ERE long the people of the United States will be given an opportunity to make their gifts to the McKinley Monument Fund. A corporation has been formed for the purpose bearing the title, “National Memorial Association,” with headquarters at Canton, O. The incorporators are James H. Robertson, William R. Day, William R. Lynch, John C. Welty, Frank E. Chase, and Harry W. Harter. These gentlemen are residents of Canton, and constitute the committee created by authority of the Cabinet to direct the Canton funeral arrangements. No details have been settled, but it is generally understood that a monument costing not less than $500,000 will be erected on the highest point in Westlawn Cemetery, Canton. No encouragement will be given to independent monument movements in other parts of the country. The association expects to raise the money easily by popular subscription.
