District Attorney Zabcl interrupted
"You are charged with a serious
crime. You have tho right to waivo
examination or be bound over tor
a latorhearing or have an immed
iate bearing. Which do you
Schrank said he waived examina
tion, and Judge Ncclan ordered him
Schrank talked freely to tho re
porters. "I am not worrying," ho said,
"about what they are going to do
with me. That Is a trivial matter.
I am only sorry that my intentions
wcro not realized, and that I did not
kill Roosevelt. I am able to stand
tho consequences. Xo man has a
right to a third term."
Schrank said that he onco had a
sweetheart, Elsie Zeigler, hut that
she was drowned in tho Goncral
Slocum disaster, when that ve&set
burned to tho water's edge in Now
York harbor soveral years ago.
Siuco thou Schrank said, ho had had

"I began to consider itoosovclt a
menace," said Schrank,, "when ho
first cried: 'Thief at tho Chicago
convention. I believed his plan to
start a third party was a danger to
the country. My knowledge of his
tory has been gained through much
reading, and I was convinced that he
was engaged in a dangerous under
taking. I was atso convinced that
if ho was defeated In November ho
would cry 'Fraud,' and that the
country might bo plunged into a

In the first a.sault they trippyd

stunned nnd crutdied. The impossible
