Miss Anthony’s Varied Work in Conventions [excerpt]

     A Conference of the National Suffrage Association was held in Buffalo September 9 and 10, during the Pan-American Exposition, followed by a three-days’ session of the National Council of Women. Miss Anthony was in constant attendance on both and spoke several times, but the assassination and death of President McKinley just at this time so saddened all hearts that neither speakers nor audiences could feel the usual interest in the meetings. Miss Anthony was a devoted admirer of the President and for days every entry in her journal had some reference to the great calamity. On the day of the funeral she went to the Brick Presbyterian Church in Rochester to hear its minister, the Rev. Dr. W. R. Taylor, preach on Anarchistic Manifestations of the Present Day, and the journal that night said: “It was a splendid [1240][1241] address but he did not mention the lynching of negroes, the cruelest and worst manifestation of all. I waited and told him so. It seemed a pity to make a criticism but the mistake was too great not to call his attention to it!”
