Hay in New Hampshire
Newbury, N. H., Sept. 7.—Secretary of State Hay
did not leave on the morning train for Buffalo, as anticipated he might do.
The secretary drove to the station early in the forenoon, presumably to make
arrangements for his departure.
The news of the attempt on the president’s life was a decided shock to Mr. Hay. The secretary has the services of a special telegraph operator at his disposal, and early last evening learned the particulars of the attack, and Mr. McKinley’s condition. When asked if he could say anything concerning the fateful news from Buffalo, the secretary courteously declined to give expression to his feelings at this time.
