Saw the Assassin Shoot
Special to the Times-Republican.
Cedar Falls, Sept. 14.—Miss Emma Severin, of this city, who is attending the Buffalo exposition, was near the temple of music when President McKinley was shot. She was near the door when he was carried to the ambulance. She has written to friends here describing the scenes. She says had it not been for the mounted guards and the soldiers the assassin would have been lynched, as there were many cries for vengeance by both men and women. Efforts were made to stop the carriage in which the prisoner was carried to the police headquarters.
