Foreign Nations Responding [excerpt]

     Mr. Busch was in Berlin when President McKinley was shot at Buffalo, and he said, in the interview: “I never in my life saw so much sorrow manifested for any man. It seems strange to say so, yet it is a fact that McKinley was fairly worshipped in Germany. He was looked upon as being the greatest statesman of his time, and this, too, notwithstanding his high tariff views.
     “If the best-beloved Minister in Germany had been assassinated it could not have caused any more profound grief. I doubt if any more sorrow was expressed here than in Berlin. His speech at Buffalo, the day before he was shot down, was a source of relief to all manufacturers in that country. They looked upon it as the first step toward the letting down of the bars in the high protective tariff laws.”
