PARIS, July 14.J
The national fete^
was marred "today
by an attempt en
the life of Presi
dent Failures by*
President Fal
lieres ef France,
at t-hort a sailor
fired- ltt>o shots
Leon Maille, a
naval reservist of
Havre, who \u25a0 it is
believed is suffer
ing from the
mania of persecu
tion. Maille fired
two shots at the
president, but did
not hit him. He
was placed * fc und.Css
arrest at once. 7
On account of
the activity of
the antinrlitarists,
who trici to or
ganize a demon
stration against
the army through
out France today,
exceptional pre
cautions were
taken to safeguard
President Falli
eres. The attempt
on his life occurred
on the Champs
Elysces, while the president was re
turning to the palace from Long
champs, where he had revievyed the
garrison of Paris in the presence of
250,000 enthusiastic people.
Premier Clemenceau and M. Lanes,
the president's secretary, were with
the president in his landeau, which
was escorted by a squadron of cuiras
siers. The carriage had safely
emerged from the Bois de Boulogne,
where the antimilitarists had \u25a0 been
stationed with the intention of hoot
ing the soldiers, and was descending
the broad Champs Elyseesamid the
acclamations of the crowds thronging
the sidewalks, who were shouting
••Vive Fallieres!" "Vive I'armee,"
when at Lesucur . street Maille, from
the curb, fired two shots in quick
succession at the president.
No one was hit. President Fallieres
was cool and collected when the cor
tege stopped. The diplomats who
were following the president's equi
page alighted from their carriage and
hurried to the side of M. Fallicres. ;
Finding that nobody had been in
jured the cortege moved on by the
president's orders. In the meantime
two policemen seized Maille, who
made no resistence, but the police
with difficulty prevented the irate
crowds from lynching the prisoner.
A cordon of reserves conducted him
to the station. There Maille refused
to give any reasons for his act, say
"The revelations I have are so
grave and serious that I will only
make them before a 5 magistrate for
transmission to the chief of state. It
is a matter between the . government
and me. I am the victim of many
