ASSASSIN TRIES TO KILL
Bull Moose Candidate for President
Sllqhtly Wounded by Bullet
In His Riant Shoulder
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 14. Col.
Theodore Hooevelt was shot and
wounded tonight as ho was leaving
tho Oilpatrick Hotel for the Audi
torium to mnko n speech. The
wound was supposed to bo super
ficial and the Colonel went on to
the (mil and began his speech after
he had seen his assailant arretted
and taken to tho police-station. An
examination later showed thnt the
injury was only a slight flesh
wound in the Tight shoulder.
Mr. Martin, Col. Roosevelt's sec
retary, seized the man and held him
until policemen came up. A mob
surged around tho prisoner, who np.
patently is mentally upset on the
subject of Roosevelt's running for
another term as President.
The man. who is smnll of stature,
admitted firing the shot nnd said
that "any man looking for a third
term ought to be shot."
In note found in the man's pock
et nt the police station were state
ments that the man had been visited
in a dream by the spirit of William
MeKinlev, who lind snid, indicating
Col. Roosevelt, "This is inv murder
er, nvengo my deuth."
The shooting took place in the
street in front of the Hotel Oil
patrick. Col. Roosevelt reached
Milwaukee shortly after 5 o'clock,
and milking his wav through the
crowd, which hud gathered nt tlie
station, entered an automobile ami
was driven to the hotel. Ho took
dinner in a private dining room on
the main floor with the members of
the party on his private car.
After dinner Col. Roosevelt went
to Ins room on the second floor of
the hotel, nnd shortly before 8 o-
clock he started for the Auditorium.
Ih.s automobile stood in front of the
door and about it was a big ciowd.
waiting to catch a glimpse of the
Colonel as he stalled off.
i With the Col. were Phillip Roose
velt, a young cousin, Mr. Cocheins,
Mr. Mni tin and Cant, (lirnrd.
The crowd pressed close about the
( oloiiel and gave a cheer as he np
pea red. As the party approached
the automobile Col. Roosevelt's com
pnuious stood aside and lie stepped
into the car. .Martin entered direct v
behicd him nod sat on the fuitlicr
side of the car.
Col. Roosevelt stood up. waviu
his hat in answer to tho cheers of
the crowd. The nnsin was stand
ing in the crowd n few feet from
the automobile. He pushed his way
to the side of the car and raising
hi" gun fired.
Martin caught the flah and leap
ed over the car a second tifter tl
bullet sped on its way.
ol. Roosevelt bn-rely moved as
the shot was fired. Hefore the
ciowd knew what had happened
Martin, who is six teet tall and a
former football player, bad landed
Mliiarely on tho nssiissin's should
ers nnd bad borne him to the ground
Ho threw his right arm about the
man s neck with a death-like grip
and with his left unit seized the
hand that held tho revolver. In an
other second he had disarmed him.
Col. Roosevelt stood calmly look
ing on, a though nothing laid hap
pened. Mai tin picked tho man up
u tlumi'li ho were a child and cur
ried him u few feet, which separ
ated them from the car, almost to
the side of the Colonel.
"Ileie ho is," said Mai tin. "look
at him. Colonel."
All this happened within a few
seconds ami (.ol. Kooscvclt stood
gating rather curiously nt the man
who attempted his life before the
stunned crowd renlized what wa
going on. Then a howl of rngu went
"Lynch him! Kill linn " cued u
hundred men. The crowd pressed in
on them nml Martin nnd Capt. (lir
nrd, who had followed Mm tin over
the side of the automobile, were
caught with their prisoner in tho
midst of n struggling throng of mad
dened men. If seemed for the mom
ent that be would be torn to pieces
by tho infuriated men, nnd it was
Col. Roosevelt himself who interven
ed, on his behalf.
He raised his hand and motioned
to the crowd to fall back.
"Sto stop' he cried; "stand
back; don't hurt him."
BBBbV . -XBBBBM
The men in the crowd nt first
were not disposed to heed bis words,
but nt length fell back and permitted
Martin and Cnpt. Oirard to carry
the man into the hotel.
The prisoner told the police after
an hour's exniniiintioii thnt ho was
John Schrnnk, of 370 East Tenth
street, Ncr York. Ho had cn his
person n copy of tho Colonel's itin
erary, written on n sheet of note pa
per taken from the Hismnrck Hotel
and Cnfo, Nashville, Tcnn.
The would-be assassin is flve-fcet

pound's, light complexion, bald nml

to the police that he fired the shot
"Any mnii looking for a third

Cattle Market Keep Ii
Crowd Very Busy.
Mule colts, cnttlo pens, and poli
tics divided tho attention of one of
the biggest and best court day
crowds seen in Stanford in a long
while on .Monday, October court day.
Buyers of cattle were here from
all oer this part of tho state. There
were estimated to be about 1,500 at
Nunnclley's Stock Yards, which is
so splendidly onuippod to take cre
of the droves which are now comfluc
to Stanford for sale each month.
Most cer tiling offered was quickly
snapped up as there seems fo bo
plenty of fall grass, and the feeders
are looking for stuff to carry over.
Prices ranged from 3 to 0 cents, ac
cording to tlie grade of stuff of
fered. October court is always Mule Colt
day, and it is well named. There
were fully 300 of the young hybrids
here, and nearly all of them sold,
J. E. Kern, of Scrnnton, Pa., was
here after any sort offered and
bought nbout forty or fifty nt from
flO to flOO. Other buyers got near
ly nil they wanted: Older mules
were nlso actively in demand, and
in fnct it was a busy day for all
sorts and condition of farmers, and
the merchants in town nil did a
rushing business. Details of all the
the sales that could possibly be se
cured will be given in the I. J.'s farm
and stock news department iu Fri
This being the last court day be
fore the blcction, of course much in
terest centered in the presidential
contest, and comment . and conjec
ture of all sorts wus heard during;
the day. Judge Snmuel M. Wilson,
of Lexington, delivered a splendid
address "t the court house at half
past ono o'clock in the afteraoon on
behalf of the democratic ticket. He
was heard by a well filled house, a
most representative audience, which.
indicated the lively interest dem
ocrats are taking in this contest.
for it is generally a mighty hard
matter to get a good crowd to a
speaking on nu October court day.
Congressman Harvey Helm introduc
ed Judge Wilson, with a few well
chosen remarks iu the course of
which he took occasion to express
his grntitudo to the loyal democrats
of Lincoln county for the splendid
majority they lind given hini in the
primnry contest Inst August.
Judge Wilson is ono of the ablest
and most competent speakers in tho
tutc ond he made u grand argu
ment for democracy, nnd pleased all
who heard him. He warned dem
ocrats not to heeomo indifferent and
think that Woodrow Wilson is going
to win anyway and will not need
their voTes. Everyone should co to.
the polls, and make sure that his
i majority is nsurcd.
Plans ore being made by County
Chairman SlcCurty for speaking all
over the county the last two weeks
before the o'ection. with a final
wind-up iu n big rally here the Sat
urday before election day.
