Observations and Comments

     A great detective show is scheduled to take place at Buffalo on the first of September—the unveiling of a McKinley statue.
     The high officials of the State and Nation which will congregate there will hardly feel at ease with the spirit of Czolgosz hovering over them.
     Such monuments are a barbaric reminiscence of the past, the shame of the present and—the ruins of the future.
