Interview with Senator Hanna
Buffalo, Sept. 7.—Senator Mark A. Hanna was seen
by a representative of the Associated Press this afternoon, a few minutes after
he left the bedside of the president.
The senator requested that a denial be made by the representative that he had sent a message to his son, Dan R. Hanna, stating that President McKinley’s condition was alarming.
“I have sent no message to Cleveland or any other point in the country, regarding the condition of the president, other than the official bulletins issued by the physicians,” the senator said.
“To forestall any report that may obtain circulation, I wish to state now,” he continued, “that no one is to blame for this terrible affair. The exposition officials, the officials of the government and the local officers did everything in their power to guard the person of the president, and no one is responsible in the slightest degree.”
“Has there been a meeting of the cabinet, senator?”
“No, there has been no meeting of the cabinet, informal or otherwise, and I sincerely believe that no emergency will arise that will make such a thing necessary.”
