the press (criticism); Grover Cleveland (protection); presidents (protection).
Named persons
Grover Cleveland; William McKinley.



     The newspapers which attacked President Cleveland with innuendo and ridicule, accusing him of timidity and cowardice, because the White House guard was strengthened and he was followed by secret service men, must now be heartily ashamed of themselves. But all they cared for was to hurt and disparage Cleveland. Their attacks on him, we have little doubt, had the effect of minimizing the precautions that should have been taken to safeguard President McKinley. It is right the President should be protected in his high office, and the ridicule cast on Cleveland because of the safeguards enforced by those about him has had a most unfortunate effect. It was characteristic of the intense partisan bitterness and unfairness launched on Cleveland. It would be convenient to forget it, but unfortunately the fate of poor McKinley recalls it to mind.
