Dr. M’Burney Arrives


Is One of the Most Eminent Surgeons in the Country.

     BUFFALO, Sept. 8.—Shortly after 10 o’clock Dr. Charles McBurney, the famous New York surgeon, drove hastily up to the residence. Dr. McBurney was at Stockbridge, Conn., when the summons to come to Buffalo reached him, and he came direct through. His appearance in the case has no immediate significance and does not in any way reflect upon the attending physicians. It was simply desired that the best talent in the country in medicine and surgery should be present in order that in the event of a fatal termination of the president’s wound there could be no criticism and his family and friends would have nothing with which to reproach themselves.
     Dr. McBurney is considered one of the leading surgeons of the country, and his reputation is world-wide. His counsel is desired, although the president’s advisors have the fullest confidence in Dr. Parke, who enjoys the highest reputation as a surgeon.
