Roosevelt Is with M’Kinley
Vice President Reaches Buffalo and Drives at Gallop to Milburn House.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 7.—The special train bearing
Vice President Roosevelt and party arrived at the New York Central depot at
10:50 p. m., and as soon as the cars came to a stand the Vice President rushed
through the gate to a carriage in waiting outside. To a question as to whether
he had anything to say for publication, he replied:
“I have nothing to say! Nothing to say! Nothing to say at present,” and he rushed into the carriage, which, with an escort of mounted policemen, at once drove along Exchange street, and thence to the house where the wounded President is lying.
Another carriages [sic] with detectives followed immediately. The horses were driven at a swift run. The street had been cleared and every preparation made for a speedy trip to the Milburn House.
