Will Pray for the President’s Recovery

     Baltimore, September 9.—All the municipal and State buildings will be closed throughout the city and State from 11 a. m. to 12 noon to-morrow, pursuant to the proclamation of Governor Smith, and the request of Mayor Hayes, that the day be observed, either in whole or in part as a day of prayer for the speedy recovery of President McKinley. The Chamber of Commerce, the stock exchange, the custom house and many other public buildings in this city will do likewise, and it now seems probable that there will be a general suspension of business during the hours named. Services will be held in all the churches and an open air service in Druid Hill Park, if the present plans are carried out.
