Defendant Claims to be Sane and Says
He is Independent as to Future.
Milwaukee, Wis., "Nov. 22.?John
Schrank, who shot and wounded Theodore
Roosevelt on the night of October
14 in Milwaukee, is insane and
-nrafi latp this afternoon committed by
Municipal Judge A. C. Backus to the
northern hospital for the insane, near
Oshkosh, until cured.
Before being led back to jail to
await preparations for the trip to the
asylum, Schrank said:
"I had expected they would find me
insane because it was in the papers
two days ago. I want to say now that
I am sane and knew what I was doing
all the time. I am not a lunatic and
never was one. I was called upon to
do a duty and have- done it. The commission
has sworn away my life. Each
member went upon the stand and said
I was incurably insane. They can bury
me alive if they see fit. I don't care
what happens now."
Commitment was pronounced fol
lowing tlia preseniauun 01 an wu<tuotive
report by a committee of five
alienists in which the defendant was
unanimously adjudged insane, and
following the introduction of prima
facie evidence of several witnesses.
Questioned as to whether the defendant
hM anything to offer, Attorney
James G. Flanders, following a whispered
conversation with Schrank, informed
the court that the defense had
liVUiiiiQ ??v ?
District Attorney Zabel submitted a
number of questions bearing upon
medical terms to each alienist, all of
which brought forth similar replies, the
substance being that Schrank was suffering
from chronic paranoia and all
of the physicians agreed that it was
doubtful if the disease could be cured.
Failure in effecting a cure of
Schrank's mental disorder means he
will 6pend the rest of his life in the
nrhinh Vio hafi hAPTi .ordered

committed. Schrank probably will be
taken to the asylum Monday next, according
to Sheriff W. A. Arnold.
' SENATORIAL BACE'.

Golunfbia, Nov. 21.?The senatorial
fight in 1914 will be the next important
political event in South. Carolina;
and the grooming of the various prospective
candidates has already been
begun in earnest. The one desire of
the present governor is to go to the
United States senate.
Since his re-election, he seems to
have adopted a more conservative attitude
on all questions. No one can |
predict, however, just how long this j
mood will last, but it is said that some I
unknown groomers are trying to hold j
down his excellency, so to speak. His j
actions, so far. have indicated that this
rumor is true.
Must Beckon With Smith,
Th#> nresent iunior senator from
South Carolina is E. D. Smith. He I
is the "farmers' man," and has made a!
splendid record in the upper house of
congress. Senator Smith, while he has ;
/ made no announcement, win mosi cer-1
tainly be a candidate for re-election. I
He will be in a position to make a for-1
midable fignt to retain his position.
There are others, John Gary Evans |
has been a candidate for the senate in !
several campaigns since he left the '
office of governor of South Carolina j
and he will undoubtedly be a candidate
ia tne next eiecuun. , ,
There are some people in this State |
who believe that Congressman Lever
will be a candidate for United States
senate. He has made no statement.
In the next congress, Mr. Lever will
very probably take the chairmanship
~ o mnct i
or tne committee uu ctgii^unui Cj CL JLLivwv |
I>owerful committee, and just whether
he wouid like to give up this important1
work is not known. Then there are
some people who believe that John P.
Grace, mayor of Charleston, would like
to get in that fight. j
