Memory of Dead President [excerpt]

 

Assassination of William McKinley Recalled at Meeting of Veterans.

     The assassination of the late President McKinley at the Pan-American exposition in Buffalo, N. Y., September 6, 1901, six years ago, was recalled Friday night in memorial services held by soldiers, sailors and marines at G. A. R. Hall. Representatives from a[l]l of the local garrisons of the Army and Navy Union were present.
     The meeting was called to order at 8 p.m., Commander T. E. Lee in the chair, and on motion of William A. Hickey, the privilege of the floor was granted to Mr. Max W. Kubatz of Roosevelt Garrison, No. 74, late of the regular army, who was an eyewitness to the shooting of President McKinley, having been on guard at the exposition the day the assassination occurred. Mr. Kubatz was at the time a member of Company 73 of the Coast Artillery. His remarks were followed by a prayer offered by Acting Chaplain O. Preston, and during the reading those present stood with bowed heads in res[p]ect to the memory of the martyred President.
