Sincere Feeling on the Isthmus
Flags Were Half-Masted and Genuine Sorrow Prevailed.
Panama, Colombia, Sept. 15.—The death of President
McKinley produced a feeling of profound regret among all classes throughout
Flags were half-masted upon all of the consulates, public buildings and large business houses. Saturday afternoon salutes were fired from the shore batteries and from the battleship Iowa. On all the shipping in the bay the flags are at half-mast.
A public reception, which had been planned in honor of the officers of the Iowa and the Icarus at the Commercial Club on Saturday evening, was postponed.
