The Financial Situation [excerpt]

     The attempt made yesterday afternoon at the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo on the life of President McKinley is one of those startling events which can not be intelligently discussed until the situation arising out of it becomes more clearly defined. It was after business hours when the attack was made, so the news did not come in time to affect any of the markets. That large possibilities would be involved in a fatal termination of the injuries it were idle to attempt to deny. But nothing is to be gained by enlarging on that point. As we write, the news is hopeful, the bullets having been extracted, and the chances of recovery being considered good.
