Cleveland Is Shocked


Ex-President Believes It Must Have Been the Act of a Crazyman.

     Winstead, Conn., Sept. 6.—Ex-President Cleveland was fishing at Darling Lake in Tyringham, Massachusetts, when he received the news regarding the shooting of the president. He at once started for shore in order to hear more details in regard to the matter and anxiously asked for the latest advices from McKinley’s bedside. Cleveland was horrified at the news and said:
     “With all American citizens I am greatly shocked at this news. I cannot conceive of the motive. It must have been the act of a crazy man.”
