Assassin Locked Up.
Gallagher, the would-be assassin, is
locked in a cell at Jersey City with
out bail. He expresses no remorse.
The big liner was gay with flags and
ringing with shouted good-byes when
the tragedy occurred.
Most of those who had been aboard
the ship to say farewell to friends or
relatives had gone ashore, but a little
group remained to talk with the
mayor. They were standing on the
vessel near the forward promenade
deck and were in the act of posing for
a group photograph when Gallagher,
unnoticed, pushed his way almost to
the mayor's side and fired point-blank
at his head.
He used a 38-calibre revolver and
an examination later disclosed that
the first cartridge had missed fire.
This probably saved the mayor's life,
for Gallagher, when he first pulled the
trigger, was less than two feet away.
Backing away slightly in his excite

time and sent a bullet crashing into
the mayor's neck below the oar.
