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.
