We have gathered together today to pay our respect and affection lO the memory of William McKinley. who as President won a place in ihe nearts of the American people such as •jiii three or four of all the iiresidents of this count ry have ever won. Ife was of singular uprighiiiess and piiri- •y of character, alike in p:iblic and in ;)."ivaie life: a ciil/en who loved peace, 'to did his duty laithfully and well for .'our years of war when the honor of I he nation called him to arms. .-Vs Congressman, as governor of his Stale, uiil finally as President, he rose to the 'oremost jilace among our statesmen, reaeliitig a position which would sali.s- fy Ihe keene.^i nmbiiion: but he never 'osi thill simple and thoughtful kind- :iess toward every human being, great )r small, lofiy or humble, with whom ie was brought in contact, which .so .ndeared him lo our people. He had 0 grapple wiih more serioiis and com- })lex proldems than any President .^iiice I.,incoIn, and yet, while meeiiug I 'very demand of .statesmanship, he coniiniied to live a lieauiiful and a oiiching family life, a life very health .'ul for ihl.- naliou to see in iis fore- nosi <'iii/eii: and now the woman who A-alked in the .shadow ever after his 'leaili, the wife to whom his loss was 1 calaniiiy more crushing ihan ii •oiild be to any other human being, lies beside him hero in the same sep-^ ulcher. There Is a singular approprltweness in ihe inscrii>iiou on his luoiiiiineui.

"Berkeley. May IG, 1901." It would be bard to imagine an epitaph which a goofl citizen would be more nnxlous to deserve or one which would more happily dcserihe Ihe (tualiiles of that great and good litizen whose life we here commemorate. He jiofiseased to a vi 'ry extraordinary ilegree the gift of uniting tliscordant for.'-es and securing front • hem a harmonious action which told for good government. From purposes nor merely diverse, but bitterly con- lUcling, he was able to secure healthful action for the good of the Stale, in both iioise and Judgment he rose lo the .several emergencies he bail to meet as leader of the nation, anil like all men with ibe root of true .•'reatiiess ill them he grew to steadily larger sialiire under the stres.s of heavy rt';-|ionsiblities. He was a good citizen and a brave .soldier, a Chief r:.\ecuiiv(> whose wisdom entitled him to ilii»-triisi which he received through out Ihe nation. He was not only a •leader of men bin pre-eminently a helper of men; lor one of his moat marked trails was the intensely human quality of his wide and deep sym- paihy. l-"inall.v, he was not merely a preacher, he was, that most valuable of all citizens in a democracy like ours, a man who in the highest place served as an unconscious example to his people of the virtues that build, and conserve alike our public life, and the foiindation of all public life, the inlini .iti' 'ife of the home. All industrious Life. .Many los.-;ons are taught us by his career, hut none more valuable than the lesson of broad human s.vmpalhy for and among all of our ciiizeu.s ol all classes and creeds. No other President has ever more deserved to bavf his life work characterized in Lincoln's word;, a.-^ being carried on "with malice lowaril none, with charity toward all. " As a hoy he worked hard Willi his hands; he entered Ihe Arm.v us a privaie soldier; he knew poverty lie i':i riled his own livclilioud; and b> his own exertions he liiially rose tt • the |io:.iiiiiii id' II man of moderate means. .S 'oi merely WiiV he in personal touch with farmer anil town dweller, with c!ipl(!illst and wagev,oikcr but be felt an Intimate iinilcrsiand ing of e .'K 'li. and therefore an Intimntr sympaihy willi each; and his consistent effort was to try to judge all by the same standard and to treat all with the same justice. Arrogance toward the v.-eak, and envious haired o' those well off, were equally abhorrent to his just iind gentle soul. Siti-ely this altitude of his should be the altiiude of all our jieople to- M«y, ft would be cruel ilisasier to IIIIF couniry to permit ourselves to adopt an aiiiiude of h itred and envy lowart' success worthily won, toward wealtl honestly acquired.

Some of these re liiiblics have lirospered greatly; but there are certain ones'that have lag •J !(;d far behind, thai still continue in a condition of material poverty, of so cial and political unrest and confu sion. Without exception the republics of Ihe former are those in whicl hone.-t industry has been assured o' reward and protection; where 8 -ordi:tl w<'lconie has been extended to the kind of enterprise which benefit the whole country, while incidentally .IS i.'-. right and proper, giving substan tial rewards to iliose who man.test it On the other lu.ud. the poor and hack, ward rcpuh'tics. the republics in whicl the lot of the average citizen is leas desirable, and the lot of the laborin; man worst of all, are precisely ihos' republic in which indii.'^try has beet killed iM'caii'^e wealih exposed its own ^r to spoilaiion.

The United States now furnishes 74 per cent of the total vain? of live neat animals imported tiuo the Unit•d Kingdom; ten years ago it con- ributed only 6:5 per cent. The change s due largely to the prohibition ot^ ive animals from .\rgentlna and Urn- Tuay sinc.-> lOon, except for the per- od from Ff.briiary ?, to Msiy 12, 1903, vhen the British market was reopen•d to La Plata cattle.

I am not aware of It." This statem?nt was made by .Tudge C. E. AVolvcrton, of the.

The case grew out of the escape o' two .Tapanese saliors from the St Louis who had signed at Kabe, ,fapan for the round trip. Heraefs defense was that the, .Tapanese had no inteij t:on of coming to this country when they signed for the trip. Captain Hemet abso ass?rted that the order is sued by President Roosevelt last May. excluding Jnpaneso and Koreans from this country, was in excess of hif- authority.
