President McKinley and his Views

Harper's Weekly

I have had an interesting talk with the President, and I shall set down, without comment or suggestion of opinion, and I trust in perfect fairness, my impressions of him, and of his opinions and purposes concerning the things political which are most interesting to the country. It may be that, in a measure. I shall anticipate his next annual message to Congress, but four months will elapse between now and the time when he must send that document to the legislative branch of the government, and many events may happen which will make the message that would be written to-day entirely different from that which will be written then.

In the first place, let us consider Mr. McKinley. He has been talked about a good deal, but he has been carefully considered very little; not enough, perhaps, by those who oppose his views, and who would be better prepared for their conflict with him if they would reflect that he is a typical American from a typical American community.
