News of the Week [excerpt]

     President McKinley left an estate valued at $225,000 and upwards.


     At the instance of Tom Isabel, the Cherokee Rough Rider, the Kiowa Indians of Kansas held a war dance in honor of Roosevelt’s accession to the presidency[.] The redmen have seen pictures of the colonel in his soldier clothes, and are sure that he is a great chief.

     The Chicago Anarchists, including Emma Goldman, were all set free last week for lack of evidence to connect them with any crime. The arrested persons were Abraham Isaak and family and his assistants in the publication of Free Society, a weekly paper.
