AST Friday afternoon President McKinlsy was shot twice by Leon Gzolgosz, an American born Polander and an anarchist, who was promptly arrested and jailed though an attempt was made to mob him. Tbe would be assassin only said: "I done my duty.1' Vice President Uoosevelt promptly arrived at Buffalo. f ! The desperate attempt was made on the president's life while he was holding a public reception at the Temple of Musio building on the Exposition grounds; tbe horrible event having taken place about five o'lock in the afternoon. . ' " As Is customary wben tbe President visits a place, a reception was held, a line was formed and the crowd slowly moved forward shaking hands with Mr. McKlnley. Tbe assasBirj bad a handkerchief wrapped over his right baud which concealed a 32-calibre pistol. He acted as though injured in bis right band and extended his left to tbe President. ' Two shots immediately followed. Wben the attempt was made to kill the President several deteotives were standing near, one of whom knocked the assassin down and then pinioned him to the floor. Mr. McKlnley was moved temporarily to a hospital on the exposition grounds and later to tbe borne of President Milburn. One bullet struck the president In tbe breast, the other in tbe abdomen. Mrs. McKlnley was informed two hours after tbe shooting and stood the stock bravely. Tbe laws of New York fix tbe maximum punishment for assault with intent to kill at ten years' im prisenuient. Tbe crime against the head of our government is no worse in tbe eyes of tbe law than if commuted against our humblest citizen. Czolgosz, tbe anarchist who assaulted President McKinley, has made a confession in which be says be was the agent of conspirators. Emma Goldman, Herr Most and other anarchists have been arrested in connection with the crime. petit jdrors. J towoiblpO. M. Bowriog, Q. B. bt,Cbarlet Hoffman. ! towoihlp-M. B. Avltt, Jas. J.

HAS QUIT NEWSPAPER BUSINESS. Something of His New Home h the Indian Territory. Capt. A. A. Lesueur, who served for so many years and with such popular uisuncuon ai Missouri's aecretary of state, and who at one time edited tha Intkluoenckr was a visitor at the editorial rooms of this paper Monday ana was oi course warmly weloomed. In discussing his future tbe captain stated that be bad made up his mind to quit the newspaper business and to give bis attention to making money and starting his boya in successful bus iness careers! "Since leaving the Times," said be, I have been offered the management of five different news papers, but I thought it best to enter the financial field." One of the cap tain's boys, young Alex.; has formed a co-partnership with one of tbe leading lawyers at Antlers, I. T., the future home of the Lesueur family, and another, Trigg Lesueur, will manage the ice plant which his father will establish at that place. , The Antlers Bank and Trust com pany, of which Capt. Lesueur has been made president, will not begin ita business career until the first of Octo ber. It was found necessary to erect a banking house, which" work is now progressing. It is a brick building and bids fair to become the borne of one of tbe leading financial concerns of the, Indian country. Capt.. Lesueur also contemplates engaging' in the cattle ' business. "Tbe best of lands, similar to those of Lafayette county, surround Antlers, said tbe captain, "and can be secured cheaply for grazing pur poses. This prompted me in deciding to enter tbe cattle business." Capt. Lesueur is most favorably im pressed with his new home. He says that there are promising asphalt mines near Antlers and that prospeoters for gold in the mountains thirty miles dis tant are very much encouraged over favorable conditions so far found in their investigations. "Of course the laws are different in the Indian country from those in the territory that has already been opened up," said Capt. Leaueui, "and in securing grazing lands the Indian is' an important factor to consider, but as a new settler I would not have this otherwise if I could. History teaches that all this Indian land will be opened to settlement sooner or later aod when thut opening comes I will be on tbe ground with my family to reap tbo harvest that will naturally be denied to the stranger or rather more difficult for him on account of his lack of acquainiance with local conditions." Capt. Lesueur will visit Antlers this week, but will return again to Kansas City before permanently taking his family to their new home. - , It is useless to say that the very best wishes of every good citizen In Lafay ette oounty go with Capt. Lesueur and his estimable family in their change of place of residence. The State Fair. Tbe state fair was pulled off. at Sedalia this week aod ia generally con ceded to have been a great suocess. Governor Dockery and other state officials visited tbe grounds Wednesday as did also the world's fair commis sioners. Many from Lexington at tended. Sedalia has cared for the crowds in a creditable manner and is to be congratulated on the happy results achieved. The state fair is now a fixture in Missouri.
