Queen Margherita Affected

Pities Mrs. McKinley in Her Sorrow—The Pope’s Earnest Prayer.

     London, Sept. 9.—Queen Margherita upon hearing the news of the attempt upon the life of President McKinley says the Rome correspondent of the Daily News, with tears in her eyes, said: “These things come hardest on the women, and at least poor Mrs. McKinley should in her state of health, have been spared.”
     The Pope, the Daily News correspondent says, also displayed deep emotion, exclaiming, “Oh, how earnestly I pray that he may escape with his life. These violent crimes are the curse of our days. I can only offer the afflicted victim and his poor wife my humble prayers.”

King Edward to Mr. Choate

     London, Sept. 8.—The following telegram from King Edward at Fredonsborg to United States Ambassador Choate was received at ten o’clock this evening:
     “I rejoice to hear the favorable account of the president’s health. God grant that his life be preserved.”

(Signd.)                    EDWARD, Rex.
