Front page April 26, 1915: Roosevelt's libel suit continues, as does 'island deal' maneuvering

Among the locally reported news on the day's front page:

" 'Good for you, we are to be congratulated' -- Roosevelt to Barnes"

"SYRACUSE -- A series of confidential letters taken from the files kept by the late Thomas C. Platt, while he was representing the state of New York in the United States Senate, were today read to the jury trying William Barnes' suit for alleged libel against Theodore Roosevelt in the Supreme court here."

"City could do nothing with 'islands,' congressman shows"

"The blindness of the folly that would sell the city of Buffalo the idle islands opposite the foot of Main street -- and the utter disregard of the people in the transaction -- are shown by a section of the river and harbor act of 1899, to which Congressman Charles Bennett Smith called attention in his speech before the Italian Young  Men's Professional and Business association at the Hotel Broezel last evening."

"Women doctors hold clinics at annual meeting"

"The opening session of the 109th annual meeting of the Medical society of the State of New York began at the Statler this morning at 9:30 o'clock, when the ninth convention of the Women's Medical society went into session.

"One hundred women physicians from all parts of the state are in attendance and many will remain during the week for sessions of the state medical society at the 65th armory."
