Wounded in Milwaukee on His Way to Auditorium Where
He Was to Deliver Speech. Wound Serious
But Not Necessarily Fatal.
Col. Theodore Roosevelt was shot'
IU Iho right breast at Milwaukee
Monday night hy a would-be assas-
Bin us he was leaving his hotel to
go to the auditorium where he was'
to address a meeting.
That the doughty colonel is alive I
today is probably due to the fact
that he carried the manuscript of,
the speech he was about to deliver!
in the pocket of his coat in direct j
line with the assassin's bullet. The
bit of lead passed through overcoat, I
coat, vest and manuscript, and pen
etrated the body to a depth of sev
eral inches. Col. Roosevelt insist-!
oil upon fulfilling his engagement in I
spite of the physicians who attend-'
»-d him, and when he arose to speak j
the immense audience, not yet aware;
of the dastardly attack upon him. I
cheered vigorously for several min
utes. The chairman of the meeting 1
signaled for silence, and quietly an-1
Bounced that Air. Koosevelt bad been:
shot, and the colonel pointing to I
the bullet hole in his coat, smiling
ly remarked, "You see it takes more
than that to kill a bull moose."
The great audience was horrified
Bl Roosevelt opened his coat and j
vest to see that the right side of
bis shirt was covered with blood, an
that escape from death had indeed
been a narrow one.
The colonel stated that certain'
newspaper Influences were to blame
for tbe attempted assassination in
that vicious newspaper attacks bad
undoubtedly Instigated some weak
minded individual to try to take his
life. * |
ln spite of the plucky colonel's 1
protest that be was not seriously in
jured be was obliged to stop before
completing his speech and was tak-j
en to a hospital where he received
medical attention, afterwards being|
removed to tbe train and proceeding
on his way to Chicago, where he
is now in a hospital, and the attend-'
ing physicians pronounce bis Condi
tion serious but anticipate that the
patient will be able to leave tbe bos-!
pital in about ten days.
The man who fired tbe shot is
John Schrank, of New Yory City,
lie is apparently about 36 years old
and is a Bavarian by birth. He has
been trailing Colonel Roosevelt for
some time and admits his mention
to take is life. He claims to be a
man of property and his hands show!
no evidence that he works for a liv
ing. |
When tbe shot was fired, Albert

This is the man the political bosses sought to shelve by fraud at Chicago
a few weeks ago. They thought they bad him shelved in tho vice-presidency
ten ve-irs ago The voters of tbe United States differed from the bosses on
this subject iii 1904. We believe they will suffer even more strongly on No

H. Martin, one of the stenographers
who is accompanying Roosevelt on
his trip, sprang from the auto in
which he sat with tbe colonel and
Others preparatory to driving to
I the meeting place, and overpowered
I the would-be murderer. Martin is
|un athlete, over six feet tall, and
holding back the crowd, he picked
Schrank up as if he were a child,
carried him to the automobile and
said: "Here he is. Look at him,
Colonel Roosevelt." Roosevelt, with
out any apparent emotion regarded
the man who had sought to kill
him, nnd when the crowd attempted
to wrest tbe man from Martin's
grasp, it was Roosevelt who calmly
and Imperiously waved them "Rack,
and cried, "Stop, stop! Ho not hurt
him." Schrank was taken in charge
by tbe police, while Colonel Roose
velt and bis party weie driven to
I lie auditorium where the meeting
was to be hold.
Schrank Is undoubtedly dement
ed and his weak mental faculties
were probably excited by the at
tacks made upon Roosevelt to the
extent that he became possessed by
the determination to kin him. He
admits that he has been trying for
sometime to get an opportunity to
fire tbe shot that would remove
Roosevelt from the world.
Col .Roosevelt was to have spok
en at Louisville, Kentucky, Tuesday
evening, but upon being positively
forbidden by bis physicians from con
tinning bis journey, he dictated to
Senator Beverldge the following let
ter to be read at the meeting:
"It matters little about me, but
it matters all about the cause we
fight for. if a soldier who happens
to carry the flag Is stricken anoth
er will take it.
'.'You know that personally I did
not want ever to be a candidate for
office again, and you know that on
ly the call that came to tbe men of
the sixties made me answer it in
our day as they did more nobly in
their day.
"It is not important whether one
leader lives or dies; it is important
only that the cause shall live and
win. If 1 go down another will take
my place. Kor always tbe army is
there. Always the cause Is there,
and it is the cause for which the
people care: it is the people's cause.

headquarters. The party is daily In
creasing in strength and is strong
er today than it has been at any
time since the campaign opened.
The quiet and systematic canvass]
oMtig made by the county candidates
biings to light the fact that the
country districts are very largely
Progressive. If the party breaks e
vetl in Bellingham, which is the pre
diction of the members of the coun
ty central committee, Whatcom coun
ty will go strongly Progressive. En
couraging reports are being receiv
ed from all parts of the county. A
feature of the campaign is the in
tense interest being taken by many
of the women Practically all
of the women voters will rally to the
Progressive cause. The Progressive
party is the only party that is for
woman's suffrage, but aside from
that it is championing measures that
women are vitally interested in.
The Southwest, which tbe repub
licans have been claiming to be very

I Republicans all show Mr. Taft run
ning a very bad third, Everywhere
I Ihe testimony of tbe straw vote is
'I the same. , , ,
For the voters of the I nited State
there is not a choice as between
i the election of Mr. Roosevelt nnd
the election of Mr. Taft, says the
New York Tress. Not a choice as
between the election of Mr. Wilson
and the election of Mr. Taft. Beat
en at the start and falling further
behind every day, Mr. Taft is al
together out of it.
The only question before the
country is, shall it be Roosevelt or
! shall it be Wilson? Falling Mr.
Roosevelt, the alternative is Wilson
and Free Trade.
There are Republicans who would
rather have Taft in the White House
than Roosevelt. But that is not
the question, because that is not
the thing to be decided. Th_e thing
to be decided is whether they would
rather have Wilson than Roosevelt.
Whether they would rather have
Roosevelt and experience or Wilson
and inexperience; Roosevelt and
tested condition, or Wilson and
theory; Free Trade, with disturbed
industry and lost wages or Protec
tion, with busy mills and wage earn
ers on full time and good pay.
The man who would rather
have Wilson can consistently vote
for Taft. He can't help Taft, who
is beyond help; he can help Wilson
if that is what he is willing to do.
But if he wants to keep Professor
Wilson and the Democratic party
from gaining control of the (lovern
ment the only effective vote he can
cast to that end must be for Mr.
Roosevelt and the Progressive Party.
All Three Go on Ballot.
County Auditor Alex Van Wyck
and Commissioner William Fell sign
ed a certificate Tuesday morning de
claring that Judge E. E. Hardin had
received a majority of the ballots

tificate also declare! that Judge Kel
logg and W. H. I'emberton, the can
didates who received the next high

names placed on the ballots as op

judicial office. Judge Hardin is
