Summary of Events [excerpt]
President Roosevelt has announced that “It shall be my aim to continue absolutely unbroken the policy of President McKinley for the peace, prosperity and honor of the country.” Among the subjects which he has expressed himself as favoring is the use of conciliatory methods of arbitration in all disputes with foreign nations, so as to avoid armed strife. These and other utterances have established feelings of confidence in commercial circles, and tended to allay anxiety in this country and elsewhere.
The assassin of President McKinley, Leon F. Czolgosz, was indicted in Buffalo on the 16th instant for the crime of murder in the first degree. He maintained a sullen silence in the court room.
In New York city a resolution has been adopted that “any saloon keeper who shall be charged by the police with harboring anarchists, or permitting them to hold meetings in their places of business, and make speeches against the Government and the good order of community, shall be deemed to be not the kind of person to conduct a business of this character, and any person guilty of such an offence shall suffer the revocation of his license and be debarred from again receiving a license to do business in this city.”
