An Anarchist Hotbed Existing in London


Plans for Assassination Believed to Be Found in Soho.
After Humbert’s Murder a List of Prospective Victims Was Found—Mr.
McKinley’s Name Was on It.
Special Cablegram.

     LONDON, Sept. 11.—The attempt to assassinate President McKinley has naturally resulted in an increase of the anxiety caused by the presence of Anarchists in this city. In Soho, which is called a “nest of anarchy,” the foreign population is so large that the police are compelled to protect Anarchist clubs. A law for the expulsion of Anarchists is now demanded.
     A Scotland Yard detective complains of the great labor entailed on the department in watching these foreign ruffians. He says scores of men in Soho have been hounded out of Paris, Berlin, and Rome. He believes the Anarchists have a central board here, which formulates plans for assassination.
     After the murder of King Humbert, says this detective, a number of papers which belonged to Anarchists in Soho were seized. One of the papers was a list of prospective victims of assassination, of whom President McKinley was one.
