From the Pan-American Exposition [excerpt]

     This is McKinley Day, and Old Glory floats from every flagstaff and pinnacle. Every exhibit in the Horticultural Building shows the patriotism of those in charge by a display of the national colors. The attendance is very large—116,640 people entering the grounds. The people seem anxious to pay their respects to our chief executive.
     The music of the bands and roar of the artillery were enough to stir the patriotism that dwells in the heart of every true American. Many of our neighbors across the line (Canadians) joined heartily in the jubilee.

Horticultural Building, Pan-American Exposition.
