about in the characteristic manner
withvwhlch he extends it while receiv
ing Czolgosz thrust out both his
hands brushed aside the Presidents
extended arm and brought the revol

against the Presidents stomach At

the purpose of the Anarchist who had
fired again as quickly as his finger could
move the trigger On receiving the first

shield him from the attacks of the In
furiated artillerymen and the blows of
the policemens clubs
Supported by Detective Geary and
President Mllburn and surrounded by
Secretary George Cortelyou and half a
dozen exposition officials the President
was assisted to a chair His face was
very white but he madejio outcry and
sank back with one hand holding his
abdomen His eyes were open end he
was clearly conscious of all that had
transpired
Flriit Thought for Ills Wife

An ambulance from the exposition
hospital was summoned Immediately
and the President still conscious sank
upon the stretcher Secretary Cortel
you and Mr Mllburn rode with him in
the ambulance and in nine minutes
after the shooting the President was
awaiting the arrival of surgeons who
had been summoned from all sections
of the city and by special train from
Niagara Falls

The President continued conscious
and conversed with Mr Coitelyou and
Mr Milburn on his way to the hospital
I am torry he said to have been
the cause of trouble to the exposition
Three thoughts had found expression
with the President First that the
news should be kept from his wife sec
ond that the assassin should not be
harmed and third regret that the
tragedy might hurt the exposition
Crondo Cnllier UiiieLlj
The news that the President had been
shot passed across the exposition
grounds with almost Incredible speed
and the crowd around the Temple of
Music grew until It counted fifty thou
sand people This big crowd followed
the ambulance to the hospital and
then divided Itself Into two partsone
anxious to learn the condition of the
President and to catch up every rumor
that came from the hospital the other
eager to find the would be assassin and
to punish him
Certain it is that If the officials had
not used remarkable dllllgence in tak
ing Czolgosz out of the way of the
crowd lie would have been mobbed and
beaten to death CzoIgsz had ben car
ried Into a side room at the northwebt
corner of the Temple There he was
searched but nothing was found upon
him except a letter relating to lodgings
They washed the blood from his face
and asked him who he was and why he
had tried to kill the President He
made no answer at first but finally
gave his name as Xieman He
is of medium height smooth shaven
blown haired and was diessed in the
ordinary clothes of a mechanic He of
fered no explanation for the deed ex
cept that he was an Anarchist and had
done his duty
A detail of exposition guards was sent
for and a company of soldiers A car
riage was South of the
Temple a space had been roped off The
crowd tore out the Iron stanchions hold
ing the ropes and carried the ropes to
a Hag pole standing nearby on the
Esplanade

THE PRESIDENTS CONDITION-
BUFFALO N Y Sept 7 230 a m The condition of President McKinley at 2 oclock this
morning was as reassuring as could be expected Although he was naturally suffering slightly from
what is known as delayed or secondary shock caused either by the bullet of the would be murderer or
the operation there was every sign that the patient was bearing up wonderfully well At the hour
stated Mr McKinley was free from pain and was resting easily His temperature was 1002 only
slightly above normal while the pulse had decreased to 120 the respiration was easy and unlabored
at 24 The physicians declare that the only danger now is from complications the most feared of these
being peritonitis The second bullet fired iy the Anarchist passed through both walls of the stomach
and hasJiot yet teen extracted An operation was psrforiiied the wounds in the stomach being
sutured but the bullet could not be found The wound of the first bullet was little more than a
contusion the flesh not having been pierced v
and a start was made for one of the
entrances of the Temple
Soldiers and police beat back the
crowd the guards and people -wrangling
shouting and fighting In this
confusion Czolgosz still bleeding with
his clothes torn and scarcely able to
walk was led out by Capt James F
Vallaly chief of the exposition detec
tives Commandant ltoblnson and a
squad of Secret Service men Czolgosz
was thrown into a carriage and the de
tectives jumped in on him Captain
Vallaly sprang to the drivers seat and
lashed the horses Into a gallop The
crowd burst Into -a roar of rage
Murderer Assassin Lynch
hang him they yelled Men sprang
at the horses and clutched at the whirl
ing wheels of the carriage Caolgosz
huddled back Inthc corner concealed
between two detectives
The rope the rope yelled the
crowd and they started forward all In
one grand fight the soldiers to save
and the citizens to take a would be
murderers life Soldiers fought a way
clear at the heads of the horses and
pursued by the infuriated thousands
the carriage whirled across the Espla
nade the horses dashing at a full gal
lop over the triumphal causeway
through he Lincoln Parkway gate andj
down Delaware Avenue until police
headquarters was reached
Thousands left the exposition
grounds and learning that the man
had been taken to police headquarters
followed theie willing to do violent
justice If the President was dead As
evening came on the numbers grew so
that the multitudes blocked all the
streets In the vicinity of police head
quarters ten thousand asking one
another Is the President still alive
Hopeful HiilletliiM Cllerd
All efTorts to dispel the crowds were
vain The com ersatlon of this mass of
people penetrated ever to the cell where
Czolgosz lay Now and then the crowd
would surge over to one of the newspa
per building bulletin boards cheer
ing wildly when the statement wns
Hashed out that the hope of recovery
was entertained

Mllburn home to make preparations to
receive the President
Two nurses frcm the hospital took an
automobile loaded with supplies down
to the Milburn house and at 725
oclock the ambulance backed up to the
hospital door Four surgeons carried
the stretcher on which the President
lay His head rested on a pillow and
a white sheet concealed all but his face
which looked as white as the linen
around it There was not a sound from
the crowd All heads were bare
It could be seen that the President
was conscious His eyes were open
but he made no sign Dr Park who
had removed his qjat and rolled up his
sleeves entered the ambulance and sat
at the Presidents head while Dr Was
din of the Marine Hospital sat at his
feet General AVelch and Colonel
Chapln sat with the driver and the
military guard rode out at the herid of
the ambulance Behind the ambulance
went two automobiles carrying Secre
tary Cortelyou Secretary Wilson Mr
Mllburn and Dr Mann
It was found that the second and
serious wound was a bullet hole in the
abdomen about live inches below the
left nipple and an inch and a half to
the left of the median line The bullet
which caused that wound penetrated
both the anterior and posterior walls of
the stomach going through and com
pletely perforating that organ
It was found also that as a conse
quence of the perforation the stomach
fluid had circulated about the abdpmi
nal cavity Further examination dis
closed tha the hole made by the en
trance of the bullet was small and
clean cut while that on the other side
of the stomach was large andragged
A five inch incision was made and
through that aperture the physicians
were enabled to turn the organ about
so as to suture the larger bullet hole
After that had been sewed the abdom
inal cavity was washed vith a salt so
lution
The other and slighter wound was
directly in the middle of the breast
above the breast bone It was a con
tused wound and the flesh was not
broken The ball evidently had struck
the flesh at the breast bone and
glanced During the operation the
Presidents pulse- remained at about 130
belnff at that figure when the operation
was concluded
The anesthetic used in the operation
was ether- The Presidents respiration
was normal throughout and at no time
was his breathing labored or difficult
The operation was a complete success
from the point of iew of the physi
cians The danger now Is from compli
cations the one most feared being peri
tonitis
President McKinley showed no indi
cation of having suffered from the
shock of the attempted assassination
or the operation If this condition con
tinues as is probable he will recover
Late tonight under fire of cross ex
amination by detectives the would be
assassin admitted that his name was
Leon Czolgosz He came Kere from
Cleveland a week ago and hired a room
from John Nowak a saloonkeeper at
107 Broadway He says he had no In
tention of assassinating the President
until this morning
While he was being examined at police
hcadquartPrs a small satchel which was
found in his room was brought In It
contained his picture and the empty box
which had held the revolver The prison
er Is unmarried can read and write and
seems to be a fairly Intelligent man
At 910 oclock Superintendent Bull sent
out an order to arrest all the persons at
the Nonak House Detectives Solomon
Geary Divine and Hanafelt arrested No
wak and three others AH werctaken In
to Superintendent Bulls office Tlnd exam
ined Among the prisoners was Czol
goszs roommate who Is the office boy
of Reuben Goetz a prominent Republican
Czolgosz says no one aided him in his
crime but the police say otherwise They
say he was shielded by an accomplice as
he approached the President In the Tem
ple of Music
A patrol wagon stood all night In front
of police headquarters filled with blue
coats and answered several riot calls The
most serious riot occurred at 10 oclock
when a great crowd surged down West
Seneca Strctt toward headquarters howl
ing and shouting and ready for a lynch
ing
A squad of police charged the mob and
Thornley Hudson the ringleader a rail
way brakeman was knocked down with
a police club This stopped the onward
movement of the crowd Two others ar
retted were A W Dnycr a broker forty
years old and Benjamin Downer who it
is said were trylns to incite the crowd
to bneh the assassin
All the people needed was a leader and
they would have taken Czolgosz from his
cell and hanged him
After the operation the patient rested
quietly and later was removed from the
emergency hospital to the home of John
G Milburn In Delaware Avenue At S4J
a verbal bulletin was Issued stating that
the President was not as strong as
expecteil and that he appeared to be
slightly weaker from delayed or second
ary shock This was followed by other
unsigned bulletins of a more reassuring
nature together with the announcement
that the patient was resting easily and
that no other bulletins would be issued

Protection of Europes llnlrra
LONDON Sept 7 The British public
and the people of Europe will learn of the
attempt on the life of tho President of
the United States only this morning but
the first news soon spread among the
clubs after tha closing of the theatres
here evoking expressions of a universal
hope of his recovery and abhorrence of
the deed There was deep relief when
It was learned that Csotgoszs revolver
was not as likely to prove as deadly as
Cesarlos dagger at Lyons In 1S94 when
President Carnot fell by an Anarchists
hand at the moment he was paying a
similar visit among his admiring fellow
citizens
The crime which will now shock Europe
comes as a startling substantiation of the
deep felt anxiety of the police of all Eu
ropean countries who even now are
doubling their numbers and redoubling
their vigilance whenever a ruler emerges
from his circle of friends and attendants
Into the region of crowds This caused
unprecedented privacy within the masses
of uniformed guards during the Kaisers
and King Edwards Journeys on the occa
sion of Empress Fredericks funeral and
the same motive compelled the French
Government to confine its programmer
for the Czars visit to places where he
will be surrounded by uniformed protec
tors and there will be no risking the
crowds of Paris lest they conceal an
Anarchist vowed to murder the Russian
ruler v
The entire press of London Joins In pay
ing a tribute to President McKlnleys dig
nified character and friendly personality
which should be the last In the world to
provoke a murderous attack The Morn
ing Cost says
Another of those inexplicable events
which disgrace humanity has to be re
corded This morning the day after the
amiable and broadmlnded utterances of
ills Presidents Day speech with his heart
full not merely of zealous regard for the
Interests of his own countrymen but also
consideration and friendliness for his
neighbors and commercial rivals Presi
dentMcICInIcy has been the victim of a
murderous attack The blow struck at a
monarch or President is a blow aimed at
the majesty and power of a nation Iso
lated Insane outrages are bej ond previ
sion or even safeguards but there are cer
tain measures of precaution which all na
tions can take and take In concert which
they are justified In enforcing The com
mon enemy ought to be extirpated as ho
can be by joint International action of
the great nations
The Telegraph says When the
British Empire was plunged Into grief by
the close of the great and glorious reign
of Queen Victoria the genuine sorrow
manifested by all classes In the United
States proved to us that they felt our
loss as their own Sympathy can only
be repaid with sympathy Thereis noth
ing In the international condltlorivof the
United States upon whose prosperity we
dwelt only two days ago with justifiable
pride or in their external relations which
could account for the existence of the
passions that breed assassins Assasslna
tlon and incitement to assassination are
not political but anti social offences
Those guilty do not strike against a
particular form of government but all
organized defence of law and order In
a vast majority of cases the man who
presses the trigger is morally less a vil
lain than the cowards whose denuncia
tions he translates Into action
The Daily Stall says President
McKinley has been a wise and far-seeing
ruler He was the first to recognize
clearly the necessity for expansion of the
United States His period f office will
always be famous as the epoch in which
the foundations of the American Empire
began He Is not perhaps a great states
man but Is a man of plain sterling
sense
The Mail thinks that It Is notoriety
and publicity which In most cases leads
a criminal to pterpetrate such atrocities
and says that If the criminal could be
dealt with on the spot one great Induce
ment crime would be removed There Is
no reason why rulers should not be ac
companied by one or two armed men who
In such cases would have orders to shoot
and shoot at once
The Dally News writing under the
Impression that the Presidents wounds
are mortal says that a brave upright
governor of men perishes In the execution
of his duty He was a typical American
In this country he might have been a
general or director of a big business In
America he was the wise President and
his Imperturbable self reliance and belief
In the destiny of his country made him
the most beloved of Presidents His last
speech sounded the note of a commercial
empire In which his name will be asso
ciated He was the first President to ex
pound the imeprial Idea which has play
ed havoc with old party lines in America
as it has done here
The Standard says All the fustian
about vindicating the rightSof the poor
and avenging the wrongs done by Gov
ernments is but the vicious gloss that
disguises the brutal Instincts of vice We
do not wonder that the multitude did
their best to lynch the assassin The
deaths of Lincoln and Garfield differ from
the present crime
The Chronicle says that the closest
alliance between the police of all nations
and the greatest vigilance within each
country are the only effective weapons
society has against the common enemy
On political grounds as well as on
grounds of human feeling it would be a
grievous calamity If McKinley does not
recover The President stands for a
policy and an epoch- Ills work is not
concluded
