Summary of Events [excerpt]

     UNITED STATES.—President McKinley died about 2.15 o’clock on the morning of the 14th inst., at the Milburn home, in Buffalo, New York. His invalid wife, whom he cherished with the warmest affection, remained with him at intervals until consciousness ceased. Among his last words were: “It is God’s will. Let his will, not ours, be done.” He was in his fifty-ninth year. The remains were taken to Washington on the 16th, and the interment is to be at Canton, Ohio, the President’s former home.
     Theodore Roosevelt entered upon the Presidency on the afternoon of the 14th inst. at Buffalo. He was born in New York City in 1858, and is the youngest of the Presidents of the United States. At his request the members of the Cabinet retain their positions for the present.
     Emma Goldman and Johann Most, Anarchist leaders, have been arrested, the former in Chicago, the latter in New York City.
