At the snme time, while free lumber
does r.ot appear to be contemplated by

a tlls osition amors the Ameriean com

As President McKiuley entered the

crowd lined up as usual upon two sides
of a passage that was roped off and pro

led the procession, ordered her away,

feet in advance, she got several good
snap shots and then disappeared. j
