Baseball Players Stopped Their Game

     DETROIT, September 7.—The baseball players of the Philadelphia and Detroit teams, in the American League, showed respect to President McKinley yesterday by mutually stopping their game at the end of the sixth inning.
     The play was just about to proceed in the seventh inning when news of the attempted assassination came, and the game was immediately called.
