Result of M’Kinley’s Assassination


     WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.—The annihilation of Company C, Ninth Infantry, in Samar, Philippine Islands, is regarded in official circles as a natural result of the assassination of President McKinley. All that is known in the Philippines is that Mr. McKinley was shot and died eight days thereafter. The Filipinos naturally assume that a revolution has occurred in the United States, an dthose [sic] who are still insurgents take the first opportunity to attack our troops. It will be almost a month before the true facts of the late President’s death are known throughout the islands, and in the mean time [sic] there may be other clashes with the insurgents, but there will be very little interference with the solution of the Philippine problem.
