Senator Hoar Hears Sad News


(Special to THE REVIEW.)

     WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 6.—“Best beloved of all our Presidents, respected by all parties, a leader among men, the news of McKinley’s condition must be a shock to all the people of the land,” said Senator Hoar at his home tonight. The Senator, who has been none too well lately, was out driving on the country roads at the time the news of President McKinley’s shooting reached Worcester.
     He was horrified when informed of the deed and expressed profound sorrow.
     “Should the President die, the effort of the assassin will be futile. There are nine men ready and willing to take up the same work and carry it through to the end. Some may hasten it, more than the others, but the goal is the same. Neither has the would-be murderer accomplished anything for any cause, the President’s death will not assist the anarchists for there are millions of people ready and willing to continue the good fight for American principle. The cause was not worth the sacrifice of a life, as will be the result should Mr. McKinley not recover.”
