The featured actors in A m e r i c a ' s q u a d r e n n i a l pageant were the same as in 1896--McKinley and" Bryan w e r e u n a n i m o u s l y r e n o m i n a t e d -- b u t t h e scenario was drastically revised. Then the nation's gold Feserve was dangerously depleted; now it was replenished by the Klondike gold rush of 1896. Then the United States was a growing continental power; now it was a formidable force in international politics. Then McKinley was the candidate of conciliation in foreign affairs; now he was on record as . an a g g r e s s i v e expansionist. McKinley had come under heavy fire for taking over the Philippines because "there was nothing left for us to do but take them all, and to educate the Filipinos, and uplift and civilize and Christianize them, and by God's grace do the very best we could by them, as our fellow men for whom Christ also died." Andrew Carnegie wrote b i t t e r l y t o d i p l o m a t Whitelaw Reid of the 8,000 Filipinos who had been "completely civilized and sent to Heaven," and House S p e a k e r Thomas Reed retired to private life in disgust. Bryan declared that M c K i n l e y ' s t a l k a b o u t destiny was "the subterfuge of the invertebrate"--a sly reference to an earlier charge by Asst. Secretary of t h e N a v y T h e o d o r e Roosevelt that McKinley "has no more backbone than a chocolate eclair." Bryan's scoffing at destiny was premature, for the once critical Roosevelt was now the President's exuberant r u n n i n g m a t e . T h e a r i s t o c r a t i c New York governor had replaced ailing and soon-to-die Vice Presi- d e n t G a r r e t H o b a r t , McKinley's close friend and fiscal adviser, and the change would alter the destiny of the nation and the world. During the campaign Roosevelt matched Bryan's frenzied elocution and more than matched his erudition, making 700 speeches in 600 towns in 24 states. For his part, McKinley felt that the "proprieties demand that the President should refrain from making a political canvass in his own behalf." He conducted a William McKinley (Second Administration: March 4,1901-September 14, 1901) modified "front porch" campaign from his Canton, Ohio, home, calmly and c a p a b l y d e f e n d i n g t h e p o l i c i e s o f h i s Administration. He said that territorial .expansion would not endanger basic American institutions--philosopher William James flatly disagreed, arguing in a le'tter to the Boston Evening Transcript that military conquest was an "absolute savage" to w h i c h A m e r i c a w a s "chained forever"--and that the Filipinos would be given full independence when they proved ready for it. Consummate politician that he was, McKinley did "canvass" 38 Republican state chairmen by means of a newly invented instrument called the telephone. McKinley's second defeat of Bryan exceeded his first one by more than 100,000 votes, although the total number of the votes fell by nearly 200,000. This larger .plurality for the President in face of an overall decrease in the number of men voting probably reflected general satisfaction with "McKinley i m p e r i a l i s m " a n d "Republican prosperity." To McKinley, the triumph was not so much a personal one as it was a sign of national unity. "I can no longer be called- the President of a party," he said. "I am now the President of the whole people." Vice President-elect Theodore Roosevelt reappraised his chief with a typical lack of restraint: "I do not think I am wrong in my historic judgment of contemporary matters when I s a y t h a t P r e s i d e n t McKinley's Administration will rank next to Lincoln's during the whole 19th cen- 'CHARLESTON, W.'VA. tury in point of great work worthily done." The popular verdict was just as glowing on a tran- s c o n t i n e n t a l t o u r t h e presidential party made in April and May. Following an exuberant welcome in Los Angeles, the Forum magazine reported that "No President--certainly no President since the days of Lincoln--has been so close to the hearts of the people as McKinley." McKinley's new practice of m i n g l i n g w i t h large crowds worried his staff, w h o s e c o n c e r n w a s sharpened by an increasing number of crank letters and the President's fatalistic attitude about attempts to assassinate him. "If it were not for Ida," he once said. "I would prefer to go as Lincoln went." McKinley did go as Lincoln went. A nondescript a n a r c h i s t n a m e d Leon Czolgosz shot the President with a pistol hidden in a handkerchief as the smiling McKinley reached to shake his hand in a receiving line at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo. The shooting occurred Sept. 6, 1901, and the President died eight days later. The two 'great personal loves of William McKinley's life were his God and his wife, Ida, and they remained so to the end. "Be careful of my wife, oh, do be careful," were his first words after being shot, and his last words were: "Goodby, goodby all. It is God's way. His will, not ours, be done."
