Congressmen Start for Canton

     WASHINGTON, Sept. 18.—A party of United States Senators and members of the House of Representatives left here at 4:30 P. M. to-day to attend the funeral services over the body of President McKinley at Canton to-morrow. The train was in two sections, the first carrying Senators and the second members of the House. Several Senators went on the funeral train last night from Washington, and some from the West will join the party at Canton. The Senate train consisted of five coaches and the House train of ten. Both are expected to reach Canton early to-morrow morning, and, returning, to arrive in Washington Friday morning.
