The Latest M’Kinley Pictures

     “If ’twere done, when ’tis done, then ’twere well it were done quickly.” The remark fits many acts; especially newspaper illustration. The Illustrated Buffalo Express, experienced and reliable in this field, “knocked the spots” off all its would-be competitors in picturing the McKinley tragedy. The President was shot on Friday, September 6th. On the following Sunday the Express had three pages of photographic illustrations bearing on the subject; and though done so quickly, no better views have yet appeared, except in The Express of the following week, which broke its own record of enterprise and excellence with its remarkable McKinley Souvenir number. When The Express goes at a thing it not only does it quickly, but does it so well that the other fellows look like 30 cents.
