TALK OF THE TOWN
AT BUFFALO EXPOSITION
One Shot in Breast and One Through Stem"
ach. Last Friday Abcut 4 P. M.
While President McKinley waa re
ceiving and shaking hands with ad *
mirers at the Temple of Music , Buff
alo Exposition grounds , a medinnf
sized man pushed his way through
the crowd and with his right band ap-
parently bandaged as though hurt
put out his left hand to shake vlth
the president , at the same time firing
a revolver which was concealed in hisr
bandaged hand under a handkerchief *
He shot twice before he , was over
powered by the guard and was mak
ing an attempt to shootagain but
was borne to the ground and held un
til disarmed and a patrol wagon came ,
which took him to the police station
and lodged in jail where he gave the
name of Fred Nieman , of Cleveland
Ohio , and later signed a confession of
the crime he bad attempted as Leon
Czolgolsz of Cleveland , Ohio. One
shot struck the breast bode and made
only a slight wound ; the other passed
through the stomach. The president
did not think he was seriously hurt
and sat down on a chair while his *
would be assassin was being taken
away. The president was taken to
the Exposition hospital where an .op
eration was performed taking out the
bullet from the right breast and op
ening the body at the entrance of the
other bullet. The entrance to the
stomach was only a small bole but at
the back where the DUllet passed out
a ragged opening one inch in diamet
er : these were stitched together and
the opeding in the body closed. Mc-
Klnley is doing fairly well and will
recover say his pliyg icians.
