Citizens of Hanford Burn William R. Hearst in Effigy

     HANFORD, Sept. 6.—William R. Hearst was to-night burned in effigy in this city.

Several hundred citizens watched the spectacle and great excitement prevailed for a few moments. The talk on the streets against Hearst and his un-American papers is bitter.
