Summary of Events [excerpt]

     UNITED STATES.—On the 6th inst., about 4 o’clock P. M., President McKinley was shot twice by an assassin at the Buffalo Exposition, while engaged in receiving callers in the Temple of Music. He was quickly removed to a hospital, where one of the bullets was extracted; the other had penetrated deeply into the abdomen. In the evening he was taken to the residence of the Milburn family in the city, where he and his wife had been entertained. The assassin was immediately arrested, and conveyed through an infuriated crowd to prison. He gave his name as Leon Czolgosz, lately residing at Cleveland, Ohio, a man of about twenty-nine years of age. The present condition of the President encourages the hope of his recovery. Vice President Roosevelt and members of the Cabinet hastened to Buffalo to consult upon measures required by this sorrowful and sudden emergency.
