Frenzy of Rage Over Murder


Incoming Pa[ss]enger Heaped Curses [U]pon Steerage.

Spe[c]ial to [“]The Re[c]ord[.”]
     New York, Sept. 1[5].[—]There was a dramatic incident on th[e] Hamburg-American liner Penn[s]ylvania, which arriv[e]d last evening. When th[e] pilot was taken on board and told the news of t[h]e murder of the President on[e] man, a Western lawyer, was al[m]ost beside himself. Walking in th[e] direction of the ste[e]rag[e,] where hundreds of [P]oles, Slavs and Italians lay huddled together, he shook his fists at them and with flaring eyes sho[u]ted:
     “You have done thi[s] thing. But for the open door, open [to] such as you, we should have no Anar[c]hists, no assassin[s].”
     The sentiment was so popular that the words w[e]re gre[e]ted with [c]heers.
