TAPS Sounded Over Remains of President McKinJey, THE PROCESSION TO THE GRAVE Wa« One of Solemn Splendor --The Casket Placed In The Vault. CANTON, 0., Sept. 20. The line of the funeral march from tlio church to the cemetery was about one and a half miles in length. It was exactly four minutes after 4 o'clock when the funeral car bore the hody of the dead president through the satcway to Its last restinR place. Twenty minutes after that time the brief services at the vault were over, the members of the family and distinguished men of the nation who had come so far to So him honor had passed through the sates on their homeward way. One hour and forty minutes after the hearse had entered the cemetery the place was clear and the dead president was rcsilu^ alone under the ·watchful care of the men of the regular army. A sentry's measured tread resounded from tue cement walk before the vault, another kept vlj-11 on the grassy slope above, and at the head and at the foot of the casket, stood armed men. Before the door, which was not closed lastnlght, was pitched the tent, of (he guard, and there It remained until the doors were closed today. Sentries will then jjuard the vault every hour of the day and night until the body has been boroe to Us final roasting place. PROCESSION CAME. Finally at 3:30 o'cluck the detachment oJ mounted pollea heading the parade came slowly around the corner of Lincoln street and passed up West Third street to the cemetery gates. Behind them' came the Grand Army band of Canton, the solemn notes of "Nearer, My God, to Thee" welling out as it came up the driveway. A moment after entering the cemetery the music was changed to Chopin's funeral interlude. Behind the band came the Grand Army posts, fully 500 of the veterans marching by, After the veterans came the men of cburcu slowly, but in a voice that could be Heard distinctly by all who were grouped about tlie vault. As bis words ended there was a brief pause, for It had been understood that a quartette of the Knights Templars was to be present to render a hymn. Through a mlsunderstandJiiff, however, it had aotar;lYed, a od, after satisfying himself of this fact, Colonel Blngbam waved his hand to eight buglers of the Canton band, who had taken station upon the side of the wound above, and to the south of the vault. "TAPS" ENDED CEREMONIES, instantly from the eight bugles rang out the notes of the soldier's last call, "Taps." It was beautifully done and tlie last notes of the bugles died away so softly that all who heard them remained listening for a few seconds to hear if they were really ended. When the last note bad Hosted away Secretary Wilson was In tears. Secre- t*ry Long was also weeping, and the president was ga/.ing grimly at tli e walk. It was the last moment for the men who hatj been so closely associated with the president so long, and the thought seemed sadder tban most of them could bear. AT HOME For Last Time And The Last Look THE REMAINS OF B«ck In Old Home-Mrs. Me Kinley's Last Look-Casket Closed Forever. the .Sixth Obio Infantry of the National guard, the engineer corps of the national guard from Cleveland and the comrades of tlie late president in the ranks of the Twenty-third Ohio volunteers during the civil war. Then came a long line of carriages faring the members of the family and the distinguished visitors. BESIDE TUE BIER. From the lirst carriage that stopped »t the foot of the walk leading up to the vault President Hwsevelt and Commander Cowlcs,oftncnavy,aU K ht- cd. Without waiting for those in the second carriage, which contained Secretaries Root and Gage and Attorney General Knox, the president walked slowly toward the vault and took a position on the south side of the walk, close to the door. As Secrotary Root came up the walk he assumed a similar position on the north side of the walk and the other members of the cabinet ranged themselves by the side of the president and secretary or war. With bared heads the president and members of the cabinet, who were followed by the officers of the army and navy, stood on each side of the walk, the lines reaching just to the edge of the roadway. Wlihio a minute after the formation of the lines the funeral car came up to the walk. The coilin was gently lifted from the hearse and borne to the door of the vault, where it was rested upon the catafalque. Itwascanied by tbesame men of the army and Davy who have carried it ever sine* It left Buffalo. BURIAL SERVICE. Bishop Joyce of Minneapolis, read the burial service uf the Methodist best landscape garflcnera who feaye journeyed here to study Its attractions. Today it was doubly beautiful, with the rustling trees giving on their yellow leaves of fall, and adding a golden touch to ths green-clad slopes. Just inside tlw state by entrance stands the gray stone vault, where for a time the casket will repose. Its dreary exterior was relieved today were shut out of view, ALL ENDED. It was all ended at, and Captain BIddle of Company 0, of the Fourteenth Infantry, who will command the guard which is to be placed around the vault, stepped up to a line of five soldiers which he had posted just north of the doorway, and who throughout the ceremony had stood at present arms, rigid as Iron. One of them passed quickly into the vault, taki;)", 1 station at the head of the casket, and another placed himself at the foot, and three men stood In .the doorway, two on the lower steps and the third on the lloor of the vault diicctly behind them. There they remained until after the passage of the funeral precession. The last of the procession passed the bier at f»:4o, and then orders were I'ivcn by Captain Biddle that the cemetery should be cleared. The order was iiuickly carried out, and the president was left in the care of his guard of honor. BEAUTIFUL RESTING PLACE Nature lias been kind in selecting the last resting place for President McKinley. West Lawn cemetery is on a high knoll, overlooking the peaceful valley, with the busy little city of Canton laid out below. If itwere not for an Intervening church spire, one might get from this elevation a glimpsa of the McKinley home. Here, looking out oa Ills ua live city, and his native state, the body of William McKinley is laid to rest.

The journey up this thor oughfare to the home was without In cldent. HOUSR NOT DRAPED. The only house in all tbis sorrow stricken city without a touch mourning drapery, strange as It ma seem, was the old familiar McKinle' cottage on North Market street, t. which so many distinguished men li the country have made pilgrimages. The late residence of the dead presl dent was the only home, ai far as th eye could sec In either direction which bore no signs of mourning. Tn same (lowers bloomed upon the lawn which were seen there two weeks ago when the circumstances were so vastly different, with no cloud of sorrow cIJs cernlble to the family and innumera ble friends. The usual crepe is no' upon the door. Only a hitching posl In front of the house bore any sign o mourning ana tbis was placed then In order not to break a continuous line of drapery along the street. HOME AT LAST. Arriving at the house the bearce drew up to the side entrance, and through that doorway the casket was conveyed to the front room of the house to the right of the reception halj as you enter. It was in this room that the dead president'met so many distinguished visitors In former days. And thus Mrs. McKinley had her wish. The body of her dead husband was home again under the roof of ihe house they loved so well and the dead tor the last time as the casket was closed not long afterward. Save for the noiseless tread of the sentinels on guard there was nothing to show that aught had happened out of the ordinary. The window shades were drawn and little light was cast upon the premises save that from an adjacent street lamp at the coraer. HEAVENS WEPT. About 8 o'clock the weather shifted, by great masses of (lowers, bank- and from a day that had been brlsht ec! all round until the gray walls and cheerful, excepting for a cutting wind tbat blew at intervals, dark clouds that bad been (fathering in the afternoon let loose a- heavy rain that caught the crowds on the street and forced them to seek shelter. CASKET CLOSKD. Shortly after the body of 1'resldcst McKinley was taken to the home various committees that have been In session most of the day announced that the casket would be sealed for final interment and not be openea again. Tills was necsssarv, as the body had bfffun to show plainly tlie effectsof tie. composltion.ranofthecauscfortblsls attributed to the (rangrene.of which he died, and secondly to the atmosphere In the rotunda of the court house. It was warm there mast of ihc time, owing to tb« great number of people tbat were continually tiling by. This will only alter that part of the funeral arrangement* pcrtinin* to the time set aside for viewing the body at the closing ceremonies at the grave. A M A S S OF MOURNING.

COIAJMBUB, 0,Sept. 19.--"The York Bulletin states that President McKinley carried $50,000 insurance," said Deputy State Superintendent Insurance T. B. Drake. "But I I know as much as any outsider the late president's insurance, and I place it at $150,000. When he governor I solicited him for life insurance, and he told me that be had $50,000, and as it was all could carry, ho was not in the for more. If he should want wore would want to see me. Well, he want more later on. It was when was a candidate for the presidency first time. He wanted $100,000, but was with an arrangement for a a good sum. That condition made impossible for me to furnish the insurance, but I kept track of the matter. It was sold to him by Manager Bokum of the New York Life land."
