The Report of the President’s Death Not Yet Confirmed.
At 10:34 last night a “flash” was received b[y] the Postal Telegraph company, “McKinley dead.” This was the last news received, and although the telegraph office remained open until 12:05 and many attempts were made to get the exact facts, neither confirmation nor contradiction of the report could be obtained. The Prescott of[f]ice was in communication with Denver, but got only the reply that not [e]ven bulletins were to be had.
