At dayljgrht yesterday morning, at the suggestion of some of the older members of the congregation that an old- time custom now almost obsolete be observed to publicly announce the death, the bell in the tower of the church slowly tolled off the years of her age. It is a coincidence that Mrs. McKinley died at almost the identical hour of the day as did her husband on Thanksgiving, five years ago. Messages of condolence have been pouring into the telegraph office from all quarters and many friends have already called at the house to offer sympathy. OF AX OLD VIRGINIA FAMXLY, E? PROJECTS FOR K.

The Allison family subsequently removed to Green county, Pa,, where Abner Allison, Nancy's father, was born, and where he married Ann Campbell, of Scotch-German descent. Early in the present century Mr. and Mrs. Allison came !rom Pennsylvania to Columbiana county, this state, traveling by pack horses. In 1S09, near the present city of Lisbon, Nancy Allison was born. Her girlhood was passed on.the farm and in 1S27 she was married to William McKinley, a young iron - manufacturer. The couple lived first at Fairfieid and afterward at Xiles and Poland, before removing to Canton. Nine children were born to them.

Mrs. McKicley was distinctively a home-loving; woman, and the two-story frame cottage in this city where she | died and where she had lived for many ! years was dearer to her than than any { other spot on earth. There she spent | her declining days with her daughter I Helen and her grandchildren, Grace and James McKinley. receiving occasional visits from her other children, seldom going out except to church, where she could be found every Sunday morning unless prevented by illness. While showing deep affection for her other. | children she had naturally followed the | career or "William with pride and solicitude.

She was always given the ot honor .at the home, tf liar il- rious sou, ana on tne aay or nis nomination by the St. Louis convention she heard the news as soon as he did.

Coghlan and another officer attempted to serve a warrant on the Pole, who resisted, and in the roeiee Coghlan's revolver was discharged, the ball taking effect just above his heart. Coghlan's partner succeeded in overpowering the Pole and started for the patrol box. On the way Bazlowski broke away. In the strusgk- the officer's pistol was discharged and the prisoner received abal! in exactly the same place Coghlan was shot. Both men wil die. Alexander Molkinten. an aged laborer.

OTVTL SEEYIOE KEPOE1! TO BE UP, Has Been to Hawaii, and Pound How th« Laud Lies Out There. Blackfoot. Ida., "Dec. IS.—ETx-Senator Dubois. who has just reached home after an extended visit to Japan, China and Hawaii, says the United States will not annex these islands against the bitter opposition of the natives. He says there are less than 1.200 male Americans on the islands over 21 years of age, and nearly half of them are opposed, while nearly all the balance of the population is against annexation. Nothing but the support of the United States government keeps the present oligarchy "misnamed a republic" in power. They could not sustain thern- selves^a day if the United States should withdraw its support. It will require a large armed force constantly to maintain any government the United States may establish there. The natives will never consent to the destruction of their national life. , New York, Dec. 13.—Senator Hanna, who is here rather under the weather, speaking of Hawaiian annexation, thought it would be accomplished by joint resolution for lack of two-thirds majority in the senate. His attention was called to the fact that Senator Hoar had presented a petition from 21,000 native Hawaiians who onposed annexation. "Yes. I suppose the natives are opposed to it," was his only comment. PUBLICLY EXCOMMUNICATED. Roman Catholic Bishop CrcBtes a Sensation in a Missouri Town. St. Joseph, Mo., Dec. 13.—Religious circles in this city were stirred up yesterday by the public excommunication of Mrs. Charles Miller, formerly Miss Katherine Moriarity, her mother, and all relatives and Roman Catholics who participated In her marriage ceremonies and the reception which followed, because the young woman was wedded by a Protestant minister. The letter of excommunication from Rt. Rev. Bishop Burke and addressed to Rev. Father Newman, pastor of the cathedral congregation, was read at all of the services in the cathedral yesterday. On Thursday of last week Miss Katherine Moriarity was married to Charles A. Miller at the First Presbyterian church, by Rev. George A. Trenholm. After the marriage services a reception was held at the home of the bride's mother. In his letter of excommunication Bishop Burke spoke of the "unusual publicity that had been given to the affair." and for that reason placed not only Mrs. Miller,but her relatives and all Roman Catholics who participated in her marriage ceremonies, under the ban of the church. Chicago Brickmakers Combine. Chicago, Dec. 12.—The organization into one corporation of all the brick manufacturers of Cook county was perfected Saturday afternoon. It will control the entire output of the county. The yards which joined the association have a combined capacity of 1,000,000,000 brick per year. The new organization will be known as the Cook County Brick company. The concerns in the combination are all large manufacturers of common brick, and it is claimed that the purpose of the company is to keep up prices and prevent competition. Clemency A-sked for Illinolsans. Springfield, Ills.. Dec. 13. — Several prominent citizens of southern Illinois were here Saturday asking Governor Tanner for clemency for Colonel 'William R. Brown and Colonel Brunner, formerly of the banking firm of Hrown & Brunner. which failed in 1895. The men were convicted on but one charge —receiving deposits within thirty days of failure. The case is now in the supreme court, and Governor Tanner refused to act until a decision is ordered, in that court. _____ Chicago Car Company In Trouble. Chicago. Dec. 13.—Judge Seaman.

Dec. 13.—If the present programme is carried out congress wil adjourn for the holiday recess next Saturday. The week in the house promise;, to be made memorable for the forma inauguration of the war agrainst the civil service law. The legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill which will be taken up tomorrow, contains the regular appropriation for the civil service commission, andwhether or not all the members who favor the repeal or modification of the law unite to strike down the provision for its maintenance as the quickest and most direct method of crippling its operation, undoubtedly some willadvocatethiscourse, and the "hole civil service question will be dragged into the arena of debate. How long: the debate will last it is impossible to predict. Hill to Prohibit Scaling-. Chairman Hitt. of the foreign affairs committee, will again seek to secure the passage of the bill to prohibit pelagic sealing by citizens of the United States. There is some strong opposition to the passage of this measure in its present form, and the whole question of the Behring sea negotiations may be precipitated when it is called up. Hopkins of Illinois and other members favor a limitation on the period of the operation of the act. if it Is to be passed, so that in case Great Britain refuses to restrict similarly her citizens our citizens may not be placed at a disadvantage. Others, like Johnson of North Dakota, think the extinguishment of the seal herds in the near future is certain and are not disposed to favor any legislation looking to their preservation. .Semite AVill Discuss Immigration. The work of the senate so far as it has been mapped out for the week includes the consideration of the immigration bill, which stands on the calendar as the unfinished business; the probable debate, df the census bill, and the pronouncing of eulogies upon the late Representative Holman, of Indiana. The general opinion among friends of the measure is that there will be no very strenuous opposition to the immigration bill and that it may be passed after a brief debate. The friends of Hawaiian annexation on the committee on foreign relations are now expecting to^isk the senate to take up the treaty during the week, though quite well aware of the impossibility of securing final action before the holidays. They are decided also upon taking the treaty up as such, instead of attempting to secure legislation on a joint resolution. They may postpone their request for consideration until January. The senate leaders express themselves as agreeable to the house programme for adjournment for the holidays on Saturday. ASSAULT OX THE MERIT LAW. Sixty Republicans from Twenty-Two States at a.

Vv;hington.- Dec. 13.—The indications are that this congress will pass a general bill for the entire rehabilitation of Indian Territory. The measure, as now planned, will be made to embrace everything that has been sought to be accomplished in the past by the Dawes Indian committee, which is still negotiating with the five, civilized tribes, but which "will be here next week to report the discouraging existing conditions. The bill will cover all the questions of citizenship, allotments of land, disposition of town sites, mineral lands, full jurisdiction of the United States courts over the present reservations, and other matters bearing on the extinguishment of tribal organization. The first steps in the matter have been taken by the Indian committees of both the senate and house. Where tw Invent the Sloney. Washington, Dec. 13.—The postofflce department is considering a plan which will, it is hoped, obviate the chief objection heretofore advanced to the establishment of postal savings banks. Congressmen generally are fully persuaded of the value of savings banks. But the great objection heretofore has been that there was no way to invest the deposits of the banks. With a big permanent national debt the matter is easily settled. But that is not the situation here, so an investment had to be found. The plan under consideration is to lend the deposits to national banks at the rate of 2Vj per cer.t. interest, taking collateral and real estate security therefor. - Increase of Domestic Kxporl*. Washington, Dec. 12.—The statement of the principal articles of domestic exports (about 9S per cent, of the whole) for the month of November shows a total of $S^,o23.flS9, an increase over October of more than $0,000,000, and over the same month last year of $6,000,000.

IS.—A statement prepared at the postoffice department shows that the gross postal receipts at fifty of the largest offices for November amounted to $3.327,£6S, an Increase of 5382,535, or 12.9 per cent, over the corresponding month last year.
