Milwaukee, Oct. 15., 1 p. m.John Schrank, the man who attempted the
assassination of Roosevelt here last night showed no emotion at noon today
when a warrant charging him with "assault with intent to kill and murder1
Theodore Roosevelt" was served on him in his cell in the county jail.
"Why did you shoot Colonel Roosevelt," he was asked. I read stories
about him in the New York World and Herald," replied Schrank'" and I
thought he was crazy to seek a third term. I followed him from Montgom-
ery, Chattanooga and Atlanta all through the south waiting for a chance.
I do not care what they do with me. I am only sorry that my intentions
were not realized and that I failed to kill Roosevelt."
He gave his name as John Schrank, East Sixteenth Street, New York, and

Bay where he will remain at home until he is completely mended and he will
take no further active part in the campaign. The fact that his injury was
nidi that it would force him into retirement for some time was pointed out

SECOND PRODUCTION TONIGHT
Will Be Started at 7:30 and Repeated
at 8:45Every Number to Be
Few entertainers are ever present-
ed with a first night audience that
taxed their theatre to the extent that
the Brinkman was taxed last night
for he first of the series of home tal-
ent acts to be presented this week.
As early as 7 o'clock the crowd began
drifting toward the theatre and by
7:30 the S. R. O. sign would nave
been hung out had Mrs. Brinkman
been able to secure one. As it was,
the crowd lined the sidewalk until
8:30 wnen a second performance
was given. Mrs. Sanborn reports re
ceipts of |163.
Those who attended the perform
ance were not anxious to say which
selection they liked the best. Mrs.
Sanborn and Miss Humes, in their
Colonial Act, reached a place not
touched by the other numbers and
were in a class by themselves. Mrs.
Sanborn has played before Bemidji
audiences many times and received
a demonstration as she came on the
"Dear Old Moonlight," sung by a
chorus of girls dressed in white who
carried baskets of flowers and by men
in dark coats and light trousers, not
only seemed to please the audience
musically but proved to be an effec
tive piece of stage work. "Teasing
Moon" also called for moonlight ef
fects and Miss Wightman and her
chorus were liberally encored.
Vera Cutter and Vera Dempsey,
two tiny tots, were assisted by Louis
Brown and his violin in giving their
Dutch dance. They were called back
several times. Louis Brown looked
thoroughly Dutch in his wooden
shoes and Dutch costume while the
girls might have come direct from
"I'll Meet You at Half Past Two"
called for the encore "Oh, John" from
the Misses Lycan and Humes. Their
numbers had been presented in Cass
Lake so that they were thoroughly
familiar with both music and dances.
MiBS Lycan has lived in Bemidji sev
eral years and Miss Humes is so well
known here that both received dem
onstrations as they came on the stage.
"Rum Turn Tiddle" closed the pro
gram and was encored until the sing
ers were tired. "That Melodious
Strain" is being whistled on the
streets of Bemidji today.
This evening, a second program
will be presented and a third to
morrow night. Nothing in either

CHRISTIAN CHURCH CONVENTION
Louisville, Ky., Oct. 15.The
Christian churches, or Disciples of
Christ, began their international con
vention in this city today. This de
nomination, which began about
eighty-five years ago under the lead
ership of Dr. Alexander Campbell, is
now more than a million strong.
Delegates and visitors are her-e from
foreign countries. Fully 20,000 are
expected by tomorrow.
While the annual review of the
missionary and other branches of
church work will occupy much of the
time of the convention, other .matters
are slated for* attention that promise
to make the convention one of un
usual interest and importance. For
some years a committee on unifica
tion has been at work, and will re
port in favor, so it is understood, of
one convention, somewhat on the
lines of the Baptists. It is believed
that the report of the committee will
provoke spirited discussion.

Press Box, Stadium, New York,
Oct. 15.Driven to bay, the Gianls
led a last rushing desperate assault
against the Red Sox machine yester
day in the sixth game of the world's
series and tore it apart within one
round. Marquard pitched his pals
to a romping cakewalk victory by
the count of 5 to 2.
The Rube, as in his first start,
broke the Boston attack at every
turn and after one rickety round,
the .second, stopped Stahl's slashing
sluggers with a thud.
Today the Giants are back at Bos
ton for another game stand where
Jeff Tesreau and Joe Wood hook up
for their third clash.
The first round at the Polo Grounds
yesterday settled the battle. StaMJ'
stuck in "Buck" O'Brien and th
Grants were ready.
Knowing that they were fighting"
with their backs to the wall, the Red
Sox spitballist fought with such sav
age fierceness that he was--on the
ropes in a twinkling, and he was
slammed for six hits and five runs
before Stahl coud get another pitch
er warmed up and into the fray. _^
Ray Collins followed O'Brien in
the second round, rolling back. th
Giants' rushes with wonderful pit
chingsure and effectivebut his
brilliant work went to seed.
For working on that five-run lead
the Rube, after one short lapse
through over-confidence, settled to his
task and breezed along under wraps."
From the second round on he was
never in trouble and sharp, sure sup
port by his ma+es

That first assault on O'Brien was
a clumsy one. Doyle led with a nit
and a steal. Then with two out
