The News Received in London

     London, Sept. 6.—The news of the attempt upon the life of President McKinley spread slowly in London. The first ticker reports were discredited; then, with the confirmation and general dissemination of the news, arose a far-reaching feeling of sorrow and indignation, which, wherever Americans were gathered, almost gained the proportions of a panic, accompanied by feverish anxiety for further details. The thousands of Americans now in London were mostly at the theaters when the news arrived, and, returning to their hotels, found groups of Englishmen and Americans discussing what, without distinction of race, is regarded as a national calamity.
