Future Business Prospects [excerpt]

SO many events have occurred to upset business calculations during the last few months that financiers were inclined to be a little cautious about further investments. The steel strike caused no end of uneasiness as the public did not know the weakness of the Amalgamated Association as it does now. The assassination of President McKinley dealt business a serious blow, but damage was avoided through the utterances of President Roosevelt who promised to carry out the plans of his predecessor. This reassured the public and financiers are again looking about for investment.
