Secretary Long Greatly Overcome

     Buckfield, Maine, Sept. 7.—When the news of the attempted assassination reached Secretary of the Navy John D. Long, at his summer home here last evening he was so overcome that he at once denied himself to everybody except his immediate family, and requested that he not be asked to say anything. Early today, however, he sent the following message to the Associated Press: “It is appalling. Words cannot express the horror, the pity, the wickedness of it. It is an overwhelming sorrow. May God preserve this precious life.” Secretary Long has not yet stated when he can start for Buffalo.
