Frenzy of Rage Over Murder

 

Incoming Passenger Heaped Curses Upon Steerage.

Special to [“]The Record[.”]
     New York, Sept. 15.[—]There was a dramatic incident on the Hamburg-American liner Pennsylvania, which arrived last evening. When the pilot was taken on board and told the news of the murder of the President one man, a Western lawyer, was almost beside himself. Walking in the direction of the steerage[,] where hundreds of Poles, Slavs and Italians lay huddled together, he shook his fists at them and with flaring eyes shouted:
     “You have done this thing. But for the open door, open to such as you, we should have no Anarchists, no assassins.”
     The sentiment was so popular that the words were greeted with cheers.
