Ex-President Qlvlng European Secret
Service Polio* Concern on Account
of Rumor# That Anarchists Are
Dogging Him With Sinister Intent.
Rome.?"What is known as the
Paterson group of anarchists by the
European secret police has agent*
following Theodore Roosevelt for the
purpose of assassinating him."
Thia statement was made to correspondent
Clement Archon by a man
high in the Italian secret pollae, wTto
had much to do in protecting the famous
American while he was In Italy.
The statement was made as the re
suit ox the reported arrest of an anarchist
at Chiaslo, Switzerland, under
suspicious circumstances.
About the time of Mr. Roosevelt's
arrival at Khartoum, word was reeeived
that anarchists had loft tHat
country presumably for the purpose
of doing harm to the noted traveler
and the secret police were requested
to take every possible precaution.
Roosevelt Well GuardedNo
more elaborate preparations
for protection against assassination
have ever been taken In Italy, even
for the cssar of Russia, than have been
taken in the case or Mr Kooseveit,
and the same will bo the cane In nil
the countries he travels In In Kurope
It will bo next to impossible for pn
assassin to get close enough to tee
president to harm him.
It is being ?nW that Mr. Roosevelt
is an extremely difficult person to
guard. He seems to be perfectly fearless,
aud when in Italy took chances
which gave those to whom was Intrusted
the task of looking out tor
his Bafety many an unhappy half
hour. It is understood, however, that
both he and his sor. have been Induced
to arm themselves with automatic
revolvers, and in case of troable
they would be very likely to g!Ve a
good account of themselves.
To 8trlke Terror to Rulers.
The Italian police declare the idea
of assassination of Mr. Roosevelt ift
solely to st-Ike terror to the hearts
of the European rulers, and If the
assaBBlcs are not able to accomplish
their purpose before he embarks for
America, he will not be molested.
