Foreign News and Notes [excerpt]

     A Specimen of French Criticism.—The Echo de Paris publishes a medical expert’s opinion on President McKinley’s case. He declares that the operation was not properly carried out, because it was incomplete. It would have been better, he says, not to operate at all. Mr. McKinley, the expert states, had a chance of life before the incomplete operation, but none afterward. The expert concludes that the cause of death was peritonitis.
