Front page July 3, 1915: 'J.P. Morgan is shot twice by crank'

Note: The Buffalo Evening News, at this point in time, did not publish on Sundays or on major holidays, so the Front Page posts will continue July 6.

"Assailant, armed with two revolvers, forces way into country home and opens fire on financier"

"Prisoner claims to be member of faculty at Cornell University -- effect of attack hardly noticeable on Wall Street"

And among local stories on the front page:

"Women park cars for safety outside Police Headquarters"

"A party of women discussed automobile stealing last week while sewing for the Belgians in a fashionable home on the West Side and one member of the party suggested that in front of police headquarters would be a good place to leave their cars while shopping."

"Surely, no one would steal a car from there and we would not have any worry while shopping," said the woman. And as the result Superintendent Michael Regan finds himself up against a real tough proposition."
