Buffalo Negros [sic] Making Money

     John O. Jones and Joseph T. Byrnes of this city, who are spending a week in Buffalo, bought pictures at $1 each of a big colored fellow who modestly told them that he was the “coon who had thrown himself on Czolgosz and saved the president’s life.” This happened before they were fifteen minutes out of the Buffalo station. Within the next fifteen minutes they had met more than half a dozen other negroes with huge bundles of pictures all of whom played the same important part in the assassination as the first one.
