Portrait of M’Kinley Unveiled in London
Speakers Cheered for Tributes Paid to His Career.
London, July 14.—A portrait of the late President
William McKinley, presented to the Wesleyan Methodist Central hall in Westminster
by Joseph G. Butler, Jr., of Youngstown, O., was unveiled today by Walter Hines
Page, the American ambassador.
Sir Robert William Parks, a son of the Rev. G. T. Parks, former president of the Wesleyan conference, presided and in his speech referred to the “wonderful influence for good exercised by Methodists in the United States.”
Mr. Butler received an ovation when he rose to speak, and he was also cheered for the tribute he paid to the career of President McKinley.
