Anarchists Rejoice at Crime

     New York, Sept. 6.—As a whole, the anarchist group of Paterson, N. J., express no regret at the shooting of President McKinley. On the contrary, there was a great gathering tonight at Bartholdi Hall, in that city, and Nieman (or Czolgosz), who shot the president, was toasted in beer time and time again. All of the talkative members of the group say the assassin is unknown to them. One of them said: “We do not know him, but he is one of us. He did what it was his duty to do, and we honor him, while personally thinking his effort might better have been employed across the ocean upon some crowned head.” They all deny there is any truth in the report that at any time President McKinley was included in the plots to assassinate the heads of nations. They claim that President McKinley’s life was never declared forfeited by them, and that the work of today is that of another branch of their organization.
