     “We have heard with consternation and shame the attempted assassination of our President, William McKinley.
     “We hereby record our denunciation of anarchical movements, supplemented by yellow journalism, and will now engage in prayer for the President, Mrs. McKinley, under her special trial, and for our country under its special distress.”
