THE LATEST BULLETIN
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. U.���President
McKinley waH shot and seriously
wounded by a well dressed assassin
While holding a reception in the
Temple of Music at the I'an-Anierican
grounds a few minutes after 4 o'clock
this afternoon. One shot took effect
in the left breast, the other in tho
abdomen. The first is not of a serious nature and the bullet has been
extracted. The latter p>rced tin-
abdominal wall and has not been
located. The Temple ot Music was
crowded with those anxious to grasp
the hand of the president who had a
smile and a pleasant word for ever y-
onc. Ilo had reached out to grasp
the hand of a well dressed man whose
turn came in the line of those passing.
A handkerchief covered thc stranger's
hand and before the slightest indication wns given of the bloody intention
of tho would-be assassin, two shots
rang out. There was an ins tant of
almost complete silence. Tho president stood slock still with a look of
hesitancy, almost bewilderment, on
his face. Then "ue retreated a step,
while a pallor began to steal over liis
featnros. The multitude, only partially aware that something serious
had happened, paused in suprnse
while necks were craned and all eyes
turned as one to thc rostrum where a
great tragedy was being enacted.
Then came a commotion Threo men
throw themselves forward us with ono
impulse and sprang toward the would-
be assassin. Two of they wore United
Slates iiecict service men who were
on the lookout and whose duty it is to
guard against just such a calamity as
had befallen the president of tho
nation. The third was a bystander, a
negro, who bad only the moment previously grasped the hand of the presi'
dent. In a twinkling the assassin was
borne to the ground, his weapon was
wrested from his grasp nnd strong
arms pinioned him down.
A WILD SCENE.
Then the multitude which thronged
the edifice began to come to a realizing sense of the nwfulness of the
scene of which tbey had been unwilling witnesses. A murmur arose,
spread and swelled to a hnm of confusion, then grew to a tabel of sounds
and later to a pandemonium of noises.
The crowd, which, only a moment
before had stood mute and motionless
as in bewildered ignorance of tlie
cnormitv of the thing, now with a
single impulse surged forward while
hundreds ontsido struggled blindlv
toward tho stage of the horrid drama
while a hoarse cry went up from a
thousand throats and a thousand men
charged forward lo lay hands upon
the pei���pciaioi of the crime.
In   a   moment   tho   confusron   was
terrible. The crowd surged forward
regardless of consequences, Men
shouted, fought, women fainted, and
children screamed. Many lied from
the edifice in fear of a stampede,
while hundreds outside struggled
blindly forward in an effort to penetrate the crowded building and solve
the mystery of the excitement and
panic which every moment grew and
swelled within thc congested interior
of the edifice.
Inside, on the slightly raised dias
was enacted within a few moments a
tragedy so dramatic in character so
thrilling in its intensity that few
who looked on will ever be able to
give a clear account of what really
did tanspire. Even those who at
tended the president came out with
blanched faces, trembling limbs, and
boating hearts, while theii brains
throbbed with u tumult of conflicting
emotions which conld not be clarified
into lucid narrative of events as they
really transpired.
MR. M'KINLEY'S ACTIONS.
Of the multitude which witnessed or
took part in the scone of turmoil and
turbulence there was one mind which
seemed to retain its equilibrira, one
hand remained steady, ono eye which
gazed with unflinching calmness, and
one voice which retained its even
tenor and faltered not at the most
critical juncture. They wero the mind
and hand and eye and voice of President McKinley.
After the first shock of the assassin's
shot, he retreated a step. Then, ns
tho detective loaped upon his assassin,
he walked slowly to a chair and seated himself, at tho same time removing
bis hat and bowing his head in his
hands. In an instant Secretary Corto-
Ilyou and President Milburn wero at
his side. IIin waistcoat was hurriedly opened, the President meanwhile
admonishing those about him to bo
calm and tolling them not to bo
alarmed
"But you nre wounded,'' cried his
secretary, 'Met me examine.1'
"No, I think not," answered the
President, "I am not badly hurt, 1
assure you."
Nevertheless his garments were hastily loosened and when a trickling
stream of crimson was seen to wind
Its way down his breast, spreuding its
tell-tnlo stain over his white linen,
their worst fears Kvre confirmed.
A force of exposition guards were
soon on the scene, and an elTort was
made to clear the building. By this
time the crush was terrific Spectators crowded down the stairways from
tne galleries, the crowd on the floor
surged forward towards the rostrum,
while, despite the strenuous efforts
of police and guards tho throng without struggled madly to obtain admission.
MRS. M'KINLEY INFORMED.
Immediately the President was cared
for at the Exposition grounds Director
General VV. I, Buchanan started for
the Milburn residence to forestall any
information that might reach there by
telephone or otherwise. Luckily he
was first lo airivc with the information. The Niagara Falls trip had
lircd   Mrs.   McKinley anil on return-

ing to the Milburn residence she took
leave of her nieces, the Misses Barber,
and the President's niece, Miss Duncan, as well as their hostess, Mrs.
Milburn, and went to her room to
rest. Mr. Buchanan broke the news
as gently as possible to the nieces aud
consulted with them and Mrs. Mil-
burn as to tho best course to pursue
in breaking the news to Mrs. McKin-
loy. It was finally decided that on
her awakening or shortly thereafter,
Mr. Buchanan .hould break the news
to her, if in the meantime her physician, Dr. Rixey had not arrived.
Mrs. McKinley awoke from her
sleep at about 5.30 unlock. She was
feeling sploudittly, she said, and at
or e took up her crocheting, whioh is
one of her favorite diversion*. Immediately on Mr. Buchanan's arrival at
the Milburn house, he had telephonic
communication cut off,and he decided
on this as the wisest course to pursue,
lest Mrs McKinley, hearing the continual ringing of the bell, might inquire what it means.
While the light today continued
Mrs. McKinley continued her crocheting,keeping to her room. When it
became dark she began to feel anxious
concerning the President.
"I wonder why ho does not come,"
she asked one of her nieces.
I'hero was no clock in Mrs. McKinley's room, and when it was 7 o'clock
she had no idea it was so late, and
then it was she began to feel anxious
concerning her husband, for it was
time for him to return to the Milburn
home.
At 7 o'clock Dr.Rixey arrived at the
Milburn residence. He had been
driven hurriedly down Deleware
avenuo, in an open carriage. As he
camo up Mr. Buchanan was out on the
lawn conversing with a reporter.
"Do you know," said Mr.Buchanan, "I had a sort of premonition of
this. Since early morning I had been
extremely nervous and feared thnt
something would go wrong. Our
trip to the Falls was uneventful, but
what an awful ending to our day."
At 7.110 Dr. Rixey came out of the
house accompnniel by Webb Hayes, a
son of former President Hayes, who is
a frieud of President McKinley's.
They entered a carriage and returned
to the Exposition hospital. After
Dr. R'xey had gone, Mr. Buchanan
said lhat the doctor had broken tho
news in a most gentle manner to Mrs.
McKinley. Ue said she sttod it bravely though much affected. If it was
possiblo to bring him to her she wanted it done.
Dr. Rixey assured her that thc
President could be orought with
safety from the Exposition grounds
and when he lett Mr. Milburn's it
was to complete all arrangements tor
the removal of the President. A big
force ol patrolmen was assigned to
the Milburn residence. At 7.110 Secretary Wilson and Mrs. Wilson called
and were admitted to the Milburn
residence.
THE FIRST REPORT.
"I   Am   an Anarchist and Uave Done
My Duty," Said Nieman.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. ..���While
President McKinley was receiving in
the Temple of Music this afternoon
he was approached hy :t. man with a
dark moustache an one hand covered
with a handkerchief. As the man
extended his hand to tho President,
apparently with the intention of shaking hands with hiin, he fired a shot
which entered the president's left
breast, lodging against the breast
bone. Another shot was fired at once
whioh entered tlie President's abdomen. The assailant was immediately
arrested and was thrown to the
groom, and quick as a flash twenty |
men weie upon him. When rescued
he was covered with brood from a
gash in iiis face. Cries of "Lynch
him," were heard on every hand but
the police managed to gel. the man out
of the grounds and locked him up in
a station house a snort distance from
the grounds. Later he was remove to
the police headquarters.
The president was also taken to the
Emergency Hospital where a bullet
which had lodged against the breast
bone was removed. Later the president was reported as resting easily.
At (i o'clock Dr. Roswell Parke the
well known surgeon arrived at the
hospital and after putting the president under an antithetic began probing for the bull in the abdomen.
The prisoner declares that he is
B.ed Nieman of Detroit. When arrested he was aBked why he had shot
the president and replied:
"I am an anarchist and have done
my duty, " Later he denied to a police-
officer that he was an anarchist.
At G o'clock Mrs, McKinley had not
been informed of tho shooting of her
husband.
It was some time before the full
force of the blow was appreciated.
The people were stunned and they
could not respond at once and fully
compiehend the extont of tho great
disaster that had fallen upon the
country and themselves. Then the
newspapers begun to appear, the carriers rushing madly through the
crowds. Crowds began to gather from
all quarters of the city around the
newspaper buildings and bulletin
boards. The telephone system of the
city was simply paralzyed for a time
and so many were the calls upon the
ncwH ollices and upon the olllcials who
might be supposed to huve some
knowledge of the details of the shooting, that the operators were overwhelmed.
" I Am Not Badly Hurt I Assure You," Said
the President. "I Am an Anarchist
and Have Done My Duty," Said the
Would-Be Assassin. When Informed
ofthe Tragedy by Her Physician Mrs.
McKinley Took It Bravely but Was
Much Affected by the Terrible News.
Rovenun collector of this city under
President Cleveland, in a statement
tonight, said that n cornet player in
the company told him cf an anarchist
plot to kill McKinley before October
1st and to Kill Emperor William. I
He said: "While travelling in February or March between Abiiine,
Texas, and El Paso, Antonio Maggio,
cornet player for tho company.told
me that be belonged to Malesle's a
anarchistic circle, with headquarters
in Rome, Italy lie told me that
President McKinley and Emperor William were doomed to assassination
and that men had already been selected to kill tbem.
" 'The time is not set for the as
sassiriatioii of Emperor William,'he
said, 'but President McKinley will be
killed before October 1st.'
"Why?" I asked.
* " 'Beacause,' he said, 'he sent soldiers to the Phillipines and King
Humbert sent soldiers to kill the natives of Africa. All who seek to op-
ptess must die.
"Ue told nre that Makste's eircle
had assassins all over the world. lie
made threats against Manager Andrews of the opera coinpany and was
discharged at Silver City, N. M.,
where he was immediately engaged
to play in a saloon.
"Maggio also told me that he expected some da3* to be called rrpon to
kill a tyrant ami that when ho was it
would be the proudest moment of his
life."
don were mostly at the theatres when
the news arrived and returning to
their hotels found anxious groups of
Englishmen and Aineri(*:ms discussing
what, without distinction of race, is
regarded as a national calamity.
London's telephones, usually silecc-
ed at night, tingled with Impatient
enquiries addressed to newspapers and
American correspondents in hopes of
securing a denial of the report.
The announcement of the attempted
assassination was received too late for
extra editions of papers to announce
th news to the mass of English people
and tbey will not learn until they
take up their morning papers of the
attempt to kill the President. A representative of the Associated Press
wired the intelligence to .1. W. Mac-
kay, Thos Ochltree, C. L. Plumman,
W. J. (intes and many other prominent Americans, all of whom desired
to express their unexpressible indignation at the cowardly act, and express sympathy with Mr. McKinley
and hopes for bis recovery.

Tacoma, Sept. li. ��� A stranger in
front of Tho Ledger bulletin boards
read the latest Associated Press
bulletin of the president's condition
and remarked defiantly to the crowd
about him, "That's good, lie ought
to have beon shot long ago." An old
man wearing a Grand Army button
leaped out of the crowd and struck
the young man He fell to the ground
like a log and the aged veteran pounced upon him. Be beat the young
anarchist unmercifully while several
hundred men and women shouted approval. When he arose,the young man
star'.ed away. Immediately the
crowd took up the cry o f "Lynch
him," arrd started in pursuit. Tlie
man ran across the Eleventh street
bridge and into the country with a
rapidly diminishing crowd in pursuit.
He dually escaped. In the meantime
the old veteran had slipped away.

At thu morning   session   of the convention    yesterday    the   proceedings
were opened with prayers delivered hy
I'.cv.W. Thompson of Kaslo, and Rev.
M,    I).    Mch'ce   of   Slooan.   and   the
hymns, "Onward Christian Soldiers,"
and    "Keeping   Stop   With    Jesus, "
were    flung.     Various   reports   were
then read fiom the different   committees and Miss  Macfarlane,   provincial
secretary, read the iinnual   report   for
the year which   was  a   well-prepared
and   exhaustive   document     showing
I Home of the work that   hau   been   accomplished by the so, lety   in   British
Columbia since the   last   convention.
When the last  convention   closed   the
membership in this   province   was  ;w
seiner  societies,   two    intermediates,
and HI junior,  with n   total   of   1,131
members,    This year there are 35 senior   societies   on thc list, three intermediates, and 12 juniors, with a total
membership of 1, t_;i, a net increase of
| eight societies and   '-".'-   active   members,   besides  32 honorary   members.
In dealing with   thc money raised by
branches of the sociuty for missionary
or other  purposes,   the   report   states
that during the yeai  the   10  societies
[who had sent in   reports   had   raised
the sum of $1,ilill, of which  $634   was
(given to missions, $.._" to local church
I nnd otber worthy objects and $170 for
[society expenses, Ss.'l was the   average
amount raised by each society and 840
Fthe average   amount raised   for    mis-
I sions.     The average   number of mis*
isiouary meetings held by each society
jwas seven.    The number nf letters re-
Ici'ivcd in correspondence   :i, tho work
���of the society by the general secretary
���during   the   year,   exclusive of eireu-
llars, etc, was 511.     President  Chad-

|was resolved,   "that   this   convention
express their appreciation of tlie ser-
Ivices of the provincial secretary, and
jaccept the annual lcport presented by
flier.''
A series of live minute addresses on
I the topic ''Foundation Prlncipes,"
��� followed. Thc first address was on
j ''The Pledge, " a   paper   prepared   by
111. Pillar, of French     Creek,    and   in
j his absence rend by   Miss Macfarlane,
which   the   writer  dealt with the
| reasons many church members give for
not   tailing   the   Christian   Endeavor
fpledge, and  showed   how   the   duties
imposed by the words   of   the   p'edge
were just as binding on all Christians
whether they niadu   the   promises   or
nol.    A paper on "Committee Work,"
was then read by Mr. Stewart of Van-
Iconver.   In this the speaker compared
[tlie work of saving   souls and the   oh*
luining of results in   Christian life to
I the   developing   of   the   mineral   re*
I sources of the province.      To make   a
P property a successsfol mine haphazard
work was useless.     First the prospect

of handling it aud then work be start-
Jed   with a   definite plan   and   objsct,

lusc of proper organization and methods
Jwas accomplishing much.
A most interesting anil well coinpos-
l-'d pnpar on "Tho Quiet Hour," wire
Itead by Miss Blackmail of Kaslo, in
��� Which much thought and ability waH
Ishown by the authoress. In it she
I-spoke of the necessity of the quiet
hour, thought, and prayer, and how
���nuoh it brought one in sympathy
wilh their fellow men. Gentleness
was not weakness, but generally restrained force. "Spring and summer
Ire spoken of frequently as gentle.bnt
the force which wns displayed in the
advent of these seasons in the growth
of vegetation, etc., was one of the
strongest of earth."
AFTERNOON SESSION.
A paper by Miss M. P. Nicolls of
Vancouver, on "A Model Junior Society, opened the afternoon session
It was read by Miss Macfarlane, the
convention secretary, owing to the
author boing unable to attend. The
paper was brief but tnvczv emphasising the importance of! (l) Gaining
the boy's confidence, (-) Treat him as
a friend and (il) Find him some work
to do, and the keynote of thc whole
-houId be love.    Tbe following papers

being Kev R. I!. MacHeth who quoted
a well known preacher who stateo
that "we are living on the inheritance
of our fathers, but our children aro
drifting away," and claimed that tile
present religious situation was exceedingly precarious,especially in the west.
Owing to the fact that the bulk of
Western Church work is being practically dependent for support upon outside agencies. If the future chnich
is to be maintained it will entail a
great * deal more personai sacrifice.
One of the most startling facts of
Christ's life was the fact that He
pleased not Himself. Referring to
the boys he said having arrived nt
that stage in the work of the church
of having discovered the boys and
lhe girls was not in favor of cod*
tiling or flattering them, but of appealing to the "man in him," and
convince him that the most manly
thing is to do right ana -the most

then read from tbe different   committees and Miss  Ma.farla'ne,   provincial
secretary, rend tlie annual  report   for
tlio yoar which   wns a  well-prepared
ainl  exhaustive   document    showing
i sume of the work that   haa   been   accomplished by the su, lety   in   Hritish
Columbia since the   Inst   convention.
When thi last  convention  closed   the
[membership in this  province   was  30
entor societies,   two   tntonnediates,
land 10 junior, with n   total   of  1,131
members.    This year there are 35 senior   societies   on the list, three intermediates, nnd 13 juniors, with a total
! membership of 1,128, a net inoroa.-.e of
j eight societies and   292   active   members,   besides   In; honorary   members.
In dealing with   the money raised hy
branches of the society for missionary
or other   purposes,   the   report   states
that during the year the   111   societies
who had sent in    reports   had   raised
j the sum of SI,ilill, of which   $(i:i4    was

���during   the   year,   exclusive of cireu-
llars, etc , was "ill.      President   Chad*
��� bourn spoke a few words on the value
���ol' the report   und on   motion of   Rev.
III.   White,   seconded   bv Mr. Flatt is
���was resolved,   "that   this   convention
lexprcss their appreciation of   the   ser-
Iviccs of the provincial secretary,    and
���Accept the aim nal report presented   bv
flier."
A seiies of five minute addresses on
I the topic -'Foundation l'rincipos,"
[followed. The lirst address was on
''The Pledge," a pnper prepared by
II I'illar, of French Creek, and in
liis absence read by Miss Macfarlane,
in whioh thu writer deal' with the
reasons many church members give for
not timing the Christian Endeavor
pledge, and showed how the duties
imposed by the words of the p'edge
"ere just as binding on all Christians
whether they made the promises or
nd. A Jin per on "Committee Work,''
was then rend hy Mr. Stewait of Van*
I comer. In this the speaker compared
the work of saving souls and the obtaining of results iu Christian life to
tim developing of the mineral resources of the province. To make a
property a suecesssful mine haphazard
work wus useless. First the prospect
nii'st lie discovered, then the opinion
"f experts tuken us to the best means
"t bundling it arid thun work be started wiih a  definite plan  and  object.
I he Christian Kndoavor society hy the
i use of prupei organization and methods
was accomplishing much,
A most,interesting and well composed pripsr on "Tho Quiet Hour," wire
tend by Miss Hlackman of Kuslo, iu
which much thouglit and ability was
shown by the authoress. In it she
spoke of tho necessity of the quiet
"our, thought, and prayer, and how
muoh It brought one in sympathy
wilh their fellow men. Gentleness
was not, weakness, but generally restrained force. "Spring and summer
nre spoken of frequently as gentle,but
the force which was displayed in the
advent of these sousoris in the growth
��f vegetation, etc., was one of the
strongest of earth."
AFTERNOON SESSION.
A pu-ior by   Miss M. P.   Ntcolls   of
Vancouver, on "A Model   Junior   Society,   opened   the   afternoon   session
II wus read by Miss Macfarlane, the
convention socretary, owing to the
author hoing unable to attend. The
paper was brief hut brcczv emphasis-
'ng the importance of, (1) Haloing
the boy's confidence, (2) Treat him as
a friend and (II) Find bun some work
to do, aud the keynote of the whole
should he luve.    The following papers

were then road: (u) "How to develop
the powers of the Juniors." Mrs. J.
Dick. Vancouver; (b) "Some ideas on
Junior Committee Work,"' Mrs. A.
Mceol.d, Vancouver; (c) ' What Juniors cun do for Missions," Mrs.
Young, Ymir (d) ''How can Juniors
Help the Church and Sunday School?"
Mrs. S. II. tlrcen, Kaslo. A brief
discussion followed, the chief speaker
being Rev R. (1. Mnclleth who quoico
a well known preacher who stated
that "we are living on the inheritance
of our fathers, hut our children aro
drifting awuy," and claimed that the
present religious situation was exceedingly precarious,especially in the west,
owing to the fact that the bulk of
Western Church work is being practically dependent for support upon outside agencies. If the future elinich
is to he maintained it will entail a
great ideal more personal sneridce.
One of the most startling facta of
Christ's life was the fact that lie
pleased not Himself. Referring to
the boys he said Having arrived at
that stage in the work of the church
of having discovered the boys and
the girls was not in favor of coddling or flattering them, bnt of appealing to the "man in lirm," and
convince him that the most manly
thing is to do right anu the most
cowardly to do wrong.
"The Quiet' Hour, " was the next
item on the programme led by Rev.
W. A. Wilson, Ncomuch, India, Presbyterian missionary, who ou being
introduced by Rov. R. G Mclieth, M.
A., was accorded a very llatteiing reception. He addressed the convention
on Christian work for about twenty
minutes after whie!: the convention
adjourned until the evening session.
EVENINU SESSION.
At the evening session a servrco ol
song and prayer was held at the Baptist church, when an eloquent speech
was delivered by Uev. W. A. WilsOn,
Neeinucli, India, in which he dwelt
on the work done by the msisionaries
in India dnring the terrible famines
and plagues that have devastated
that country lately.

A DEEP MYSTERY.
It is a mvHtery why women endure
Backache, Headaohe, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, Fainting
and Dizzy Spells when thousands have
proved that Electric Bitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffered for years with kidney trouble,"
writes Mrs. I'hehe Charley, of Peterson, In., "anil u lame buck pained inn
so I'could not dress myself, but Electric Hitters wholly cured me, and,
although 711 years old, 1 now am able
to do all my housework." It over
comes Constipation, improves Appetite, gives perfect health. Only filJo
