Resolution Passed by the State Executive Committee on the Cold-Blooded Atrocity.
BOSTON, Sept. 10.—The following resolution was
unanimously passed at a meeting of the executive committee of the Democratic
State Committee, held at the headquarters of the committee yesterday:
Resolved, That the executive committee of the Democratic State Committee desires to express its profound sympathy with President McKinley and with the members of his family, in view of the attempt upon his life, and its deep abhorrence of the dastardly crime, without parallel for cold-blooded atrocity in the annals of political assassination, committed upon him as the representative of the sovereignty of the American people. We join with every American citizen worthy of the name in the earnest hope that the President’s life may be spared to complete his full term of service in the office to which he has been elected by the people, and we express our sense of the loss which the nation would sustain by his death.
