President McKinley’s Solicitude

     Washington, Sept. 27.—Official announcement to the marine hospital service of the death of the late President McKinley is made in the public health report just issued by the surgeon general. It says that “to the admiration and love for President McKinley, inspired by his statesmanship, manhood and personal qualities, should be added a just appreciation of his prompt response to request for action in public health matters,” and recounts many executive orders issued for the purpose of insuring public safety. Among other things it mentions that when the yellow fever appeared in the National Soldiers’ Home at Hampton, Va., in 1899, he showed extreme solicitude for the veterans and requested and received a daily report on the progress of the disease and success of the measures to check it.
