COL. ROOSEVELT SHOT
New York Lunatic Follows Ex-President
No Politics in the Case
Monday evening it was reported
in Alliance that ex-President Roose
velt had been shot in Milwaukee,
Just, before beginning a political
apeeeh. Full details of the occur
rence were not received here until
the daily papers arrived the next
day. A ma.il by the name of John
Sc hrank who had evidently been fol
lowing Roosevelt for some time with
the intention of assassinating him.
leveled a revolver at him as he was
leaving his hotel for the auditorium,
where he was to deliver an address,
and fired. The shot took effect in
the right breast, fracturing the
fourth rib. The force of the bullet
was broken by the manuscript of the
speech which was In the colonel's
coat pocket. Had It not been for
this, the shot would no doubt have
Colonel Roosevelt's courage, which
is one cause of his great popularity,

That some newspaper correspond
ents' minds naturally run in narrow
channels is shown by the eort sent
out immediately after te shooting
that the assassin "was probably a
socialist." The man wbe did the
shooting and mho la ihe son of a
New York saloonkeeper, is evidently
a republican, if anything In politics;
but it is absurd to charge his crime
to any political party or its adher

his pocket shows him to be a man
