Present at Tragedy
Special [t]o Leader.
Laramie, Wyo., Sept. 9.—Jesse Converse of this city was at Buffalo on Friday and was a visitor at the exposition grounds at the time. He and his wife had shaken hands with the president but a moment or two before, and while he was not on the exact spot, he was near enough to hear the shots and witness the excitement occasioned by the attempt at assassination. He says the whole city was thrown into gloom of the deepest kind by the attempted assassination.
