"THE FURNITURE MAN"
O by American Press Association.
EX-PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT.
A DASTARDLY ACT
The entire country ia shocked ai the attempted assassination of
Ex-President Roosevelt in Milwaukee, Monday night. The act was
that of n miscreaut and meets with the condemnation of every right
minded, liberty-loving and patriotic citizen of the country.
It is a pity that the best and most patriotic and those who are
held in tho highest esteem by the best elements of the untion are con
stantly subjected to danger from weak and disordered minds.
Schrank, the would be assassin, is a crank and worse than a crank.
He belongs to a most dangerous class dangerous because fanatical,
because absolute protection and security from his kind are impossible.
Ho works in the dark. While a fool, he is not fool enough to pub
lish his intentions.
The attempted assassination of Mr. Roosevelt is trebly unfortu
nate. Personally, a man of high idealH and conscious of advocating
no measure and making no move that is not for the highest interests
of his countrymen, it may shock his faith in bis fellowmen to realize
that he is subjected to such an attack.
In the secoud place, it is unfortunate- for the cause which he rep
resents. He is now incapacitated for carrying on his campaign, and,
if the result is not what he expected it to be, it may be attributed to
that cause. While on the other hand if the outcome is different from
wbut his opponents wish and expect, it may bo attributed to sym
pathy and not to the worth of the claims of his party.
Again, it is unfortunate for the opposing, candidates in that it
may excite undue sympathy for the Progressive cause and detract at
tention from the real worth of the claims of the rival parties.
However among those, "who possess opinions and a will" the act
of a crazy man will not turn a vote one way or another.
The Citizen joins with all the good in rejoicing that the dastard
failed in his purpose.

According to the final report of the
