Crowds Beat Madly on Doors of the
Auditorium, Demanding
to Know the Truth.
MILWAUKEE, Wis.. October 15.-It
vma late last night before Milwaukee
settled down to Its usual calm, after the
egdte^aent caused by the shooting of
?"ol. Roosevelt. Word that a#shot had
v-een fired at the colonel socn spread over
the cKy. but the first impjession was
that he had not been hit and it was ful y
two hours later before it was generally
known that the colonel had been injured.
Among the crowd which had gathered
in the street in front of the Gilpatrick
Hotel, shortly before 8 o'clock, where the
shooting occurred, few persons If any.
believed that the bullet had found its
mark.
Martin, the stenographer, was at the
colonel's elbow, llenry F. Cochems was
on the other side. "'You get into the
car first." said Cochems to Martin, as it
was customary for the colonel to take
the middle seat. "No. you go first," replied
Martin. The podteness gave him
the opportunity to engrave his name on
the roh of fame, for t'ocaems was out
of reach when the shot was fired and
Martin was r.ght at hand.
Martin Leaps on Schrank.
Schrank, the assassin, was within
sevtn? leet of the co.onel when he raised
his hand with the gun in it leve.ed at
Col. Rh^sewlfa breast. He tired and m
an instant Martin .eaped on him and
hurled nifti to the ground with one of
his. arms twis'ed around the assassin's
neck.
"i saw Martin eap oa the man like a
w.ld animal. * later said tocnems, who,
hinaseit, seized u-e assassin a second
later. "He uasned him to the ground,
tw'a-tlng the man's head back, and h,s
frnt band grafting the revo.ver aiound
mc uviuiiici, cu me ut'fljjvii tuum nut ut
Ilreid."
Martin is a former foot ball player and
Srhrank was no match for h.m. ac
tridd desperately to puil the trigger of
hie weapon, but could not. and Martin
held the barrel pointed harmless.y toward
the sky. uocm-ms ana a special
policeman wrenched the gun away from
Schrank, and men the crowd surged forward
, murderous.y bent on navn.g the
map's life. Martin and Oochems joined
in dragging Mm to safety under coL.
Roosevelt s protection.
i
Roosevelt Insists on Standing*.
"I will stand up. I must stand up now
if I never do again.*' These were ColRoosevelt's
words to his cousin. Philip
Roosevelt, a moment after the assassin's
bullet bad struck him. Philip Roosevelt,
who wras at the colonel's side, begged
him to remain seated in the position to
which he had fallen at the shot. Philip
Roosevelt said that at the shot tne
colonel, who was standing waving his hat
at the moment, wavered and fe:l to a
erouchlng position on the seat of the automobile.
"Sit still. Sit still. Cousin Tneodore."
urged Philip.
"No, I will stand up. Don't hurt that
man. Don't let any one hurt him. Dring
him to me," ordered the colonel, lis.ng to
his feet and speaking in his usual strong
voice. "Don't hurt the poor devil. He
doesn't know what he nas done."
Martin, the stenographer who was the
ltcro of tho occasion, was still holding
Schrank .n his gra?p. "Henry F. Cochems,
who had jumped In front of the coioncl,
turned to him.
"He pinked me, Harry, he pinked me,"
gaid the colonel with h s hand over the
wound in h.s right breast. "I got that,
ail right. '
"For heaven's sake, colonel, go to a
hospital, ' said Cochems. "'Don't try to
apeak."
i Determined to Make His Speech.
"1 will go there and speak tonight,"
said Col. Roosevelt with deliberation, "if
it kills me. I will speak it" I fall on the
platform.
"I have :l messa.Ee to deliver TMv mo.
be my last chance to deliver it JL may
be hurt worse than I feel. This may be
my last speech. I am strong now. J
want to go right away w hile I am good
for it-"
Col. Roosevelt opened nis waistcoat and
bloody shirt und glanced at the w ound. It
was a black hole surrounded by bruised
and bleeding flesh. Little b.ood came
from it. which at first seemed to ind.eate
that the flow might be internal.
"Looks like a shot from a .1A." said
Col. Roosevelt. "But I'm not coughing.
I guess I'm all right. Somebody give me
a handkerchief."
Dr. Terrei . anded him a fresh hundKerchilef
and he put it over the wound
and closed his shirt over the place. Fewpersons.saw
the colonel bandage lus own
woupd, as he took pains to conceal his
movements and the operation took but a
moment. lie had been standing a'.l the
time and he turned and waved Ms hat
.iM cjieerfully as he had been when the assassin's
shot sounded.
Ue assured the crowd that he "was all
Tight." "The people gave'him a cheer as
he drove away and then dispersed.
I ?
Crowd Unaware of Shooting.
Ttte crowd about the Auditorium, where
f\?I. Roosevelt- was to speak, was less at
ease. Long lwfore the colonel reached
he bQilding it was tilted, and In tne
streets outside were several thousand
ersons w ho were unable to gain admittance.
Col. Roosevelt reached the building before
the shooting had been generally
heard of. The people pressed about h'm
ax closely as they ccuM tin! cht-ered him
a?- he left his automobile and stepped
through the dcor.
Col. Kooseve t srriltJ ?nd waved his big
black campaign hat as though nothing out
of the ordinary had 1 appened. As lie entered
the buihliri^ hundreds of persona
:nade a rush for the doors and the colonel
barely escaped bein" caught in a Jam. As
Jt was. he was whisked throuugh the
door at the vanguard of the unrushlng
crowd and it took the hardest efforts of
the police to stem the rush and close the
doors.
He wa'ked with his usual firm step to
the p'atform from which he spoke and
sternly resisted all efforts to get him to
shorten his speech. One of those behind
hfm at one time attempted to take away
Ids manuscript, but the colonel picked it
up with a rebuking remark.
People in a Frenzy.
At this time the report began to spread
that Col. Roosevelt had been shot. People
came on a run from every direction,
bearing the news that the shot had been
fired, and demanding imperiously to know
whether the ex-President was injured.
J hey beat on the doors and shouted
tfcsa'attendants within for admission, or
A
at least for some knowledge of what had ffh
happened. It Was necessary to lock and U
bar the doors and place double guards n
on-them. ^
Rumors of the most conflicting nature
were spread, and not until word came that
the colonel was making his speech were
fears allayed to some extent. p.

performed their duty, Every one was excluded.
regardless of his reasons for demanding
admls ton. H>
The newspaper correspondents who are (j|
accompanying Col. Roosevelt on his tour
were unable to follow him from the GUpatrick
quickly enough to enter the Auditorium
with him, and when they reached m
the building they found themse.ves locked
out. with an angry policeman on guard at
each door.
First Accurate Information.
It took half an hour of running from SI
door to door, of arguments, pleas, threats
and physical encounters before they were
at last admitted. O. K. Davis, secretary Te
of the progressive national committee,
responded to the call for help,- and pro- *
\1ded the first accurate information us to
what hud occurred.
Mr. Davis talked brokenly with tears
streaming down his face. Dr. Schurry
Terrell, Col- Roosevelt's physician, was >
too overwrought to attempt a coherent er
story. He could only wave his arms and
say that he did not know how badly Col.
Roosevelt was Injured, for the colonel iru
would permit him to make only a most wh
superficial examination of the wound. lie
As the crowd within the building learn- asj
ed that the ex-President had been shot
the contagion of excitement spread. Col.
Roosevelt was the only person who ap- as!
l>arently was neither excited nor con- not
cerned. thfi
Rassures Mrs. Roosevelt. mo
for
Col. Roosevelt was greatly concerned jng
lest a'arming reports of his condition
reach Mrs. Roosevelt, and as soon as he sef
arrived at the Auditorium he directed
that a message be sent to her giving as- ^ni
aurance that he was in no danger. Before
he went to the operating room in .
the hospital he dictated a telegram to M
Mrs. Roosevelt, giving orders that l? the
telegraph office at Oyster Bay were closed caj
tiie message was to be taken from New w||
York to Sagarporc Jlill by automobile.
His telecram read:
"Am in excellent shape. Made an hourand-a-half
speech. The wound is a trivial
one. I think they will find that It vai
merely glanced on a rib and went some- a Y
where into a cavity of the body: it cer- f
tainly did not touch a lung and isn't" a
particle more serious than one of the ^a?
injuries any of the boys used - continually too
to be having. Am at the Emergency Hos- ,,a,
pital at the moment, but anticipate going
rR ht pn with my ei^gaeepaents., My voice to"
seems to be in good shape. Best love to
Ethel."
Taken to the Hospital. w-h
After his speech, when he went to the my
Emergency Hospital he looked calmly "]
uxuunil ine waning room, upnning uoors
and keeping on his feet in opposition to
the requests of his friends and the orders
of his physicians. wis
" A 'kg,*- eh?some -drive -to-that;"-he hH?
remarked, looking again at the wound abs
as he stretched out on the operating uiui
table and submitted to'the examination or;
of the physicians. . . nel
After the hospital examination was P1"*1
over and it had been decided to defer tim
probing for the bullet, until the party P^r
arrived in Chicago, the colonel rode in * n
his motor car to the r^ilropd station, bee
sitting upright and responding to the ocmc
greeting of the crowds that lined the
route. He stepped lightly from the automobile,
waving his hat, and. walked
rapidly to the train, some distance from
street.
"Bully for you, Teddy-!" "You are a |iea
brave man, Teddy, all right!" yelled the ive
crowd, and the colonel waved his hand ten
and smiled. ma]

I am telling you the literal truth ^

I can tell you with j
olute truthfulness that I am very I.

not. It was just as when I was colo- y,
of my regiment, I always felt that a
fate was to be excused for feeling at

mn fit to be colonel who can pay any j]

Not Thinking of His Life.
I am in this cause with my whole

movement to try to take the bur- o

Must public men in the United States be ^

Ir. Roosevelt was shot at Milwaukee last

kely to prove fatal. Nevertheless, the
lan shot to kill, and had he rearmed his v
Kpectations Mr. Roosevelt would be s
ead. Only two years ago Mayo>- G -ynor n

esterday may happen to Mr. Taft today
r to Mr. Wilson tomorrow, or even to
Ir. Debs the day after tomorrow. Gov- y
rnment and society alike seem power ss
to provide adequate protection for J
ublic men and public officials In this .1
ountry. Mr. Roosevelt himself has al- J
'ays regarded assassination or attempted J
ssassination as one of the "trade risks'' '
f American public life, and there is ?j
robably no means of making it other- .
dse. Public officials and candidates can- **
ot very well be surrounded by body- J
uards like a European monarch. Neither jj
an they maintain a remote and isolated J
Kistence from their fellow-citizens. Pub- J
c questions must be discussed, public is- .<
ues must be threshed out, and whatever #|
anger follows must inevitably be as- ?|
umed. Nevertheless, it ought to be pos- !
ible to keep crazy men out of shooting <i
istance of Presidents and candidates for
'resident. It ought to be possible to furish
enough police protection to enable the
"nited States to conduct a presidential *i
ampaign without the possibility of as- J
assinatiou.' J
