McKinley assassination.
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz; William McKinley.



     We are greatly pleased to be able to state that at this writing President McKinley seems to be, from press dispatches, well on the road to recovery from the injury inflicted by his would-be assassin, Czolgosz at Buffalo last Friday, September 6. The dastard’s bullet made a grievous wound, not only in the body of our President, but in the hearts of all Americans, indeed of all worthy the name of man or woman the wide world over. How evil must be the teachings and sentiment that should prompt in a sane mind so heinous a crime.
