Booze and Life Insurance.
It is now becoming generally
recognized, says the Spectator,
that the alcohol habit is one of
tho most important factors in de
termining length of life. No life
insurance company will now
knowingly accept tho application
of any ono known us a hard
drinker; and evidence is accumu
lating which says that even the
moderate use of alcobol is pre
judicial to health and long life.
In England a dozen or more life
insurance companies recognize
this fact by giving a reduction
of premium to abstainers or al
lowing them a lurger share in the
profits. The Scottish Temper
ance Life Insurance company
gives abstainers a reduction of 10
per cent in their premiums. The
Modern Woodmen society in the
United Stales bars absolutely
from membership all persons en
gaged in the liquor business

Lost Saturday morning the
American fine all over this na
tion was flying at half mast and
the bells of our churchos were
tolling in token of the sad news
of the death of President Mc-
Kinley. Up till last Friday
everything seemed favorable for
his recovery, but . on the night
before his condition grew worse.
This is the third time tho people
of our country have mourned the
loss of a president at the bands
of an assassin.
Tho statement of Leon Czol-
gosz made to the police, tran
scribed and signed by tha pris
oner is as follows:
"I was born in Detroit nearly
twenty-nino years ago. My par
ents were Russian Poles. They
came here forty one years ago.
I got my education in the public
schools of Dotriot, and then wen
to Cleveland where I got work.
In Cleveland I road books on so
cialism and met a great m.tny so
cialists. I was pretty well known
as a socialist in the wost. After
being in Cleveland for several
years I went to Chicago, where 1
remained seven mouths, after
which I went to Newburg, on the
outskirts of Cleveland, and went
to work in tho Newburg wire
"During tho- last five years I
have had as friends anarchists In
Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit and
other western cities, and, I sup
pose, Ixjcamo moro or loss bitter.
Yet. I know I wus bitter. I
never had much luck at anything,
and this preyed upon me. It
made me morose and envious, but
what started tho craze to kill was
a lecture I heard soma time ago
by Emmn Goldman. She was in
Cleveland, and I and other an
archists went to hear ber. She
set me on fire.
"Her doctrine that nil rulers
should be exterminated was what
sot mo to thinking no that ray
bend nearly split with pain. Miss
Goldman's words went right
through me, and when I left the
lecture I had made up my mind
that I would do something heroic
for the cause I loved.
''Eight days ago, while I was
in Chicago, I read in a Chicago
newspaper of President McKin-
ley's visit to the Pan-American
exposition at Buffalo. That day
I bought a ticket to Buffalo and
got hero with the determination
to do something, but I did not
not know just what. I thought
of shooting the president, but had
not formed a plan.
"I went to live at 10SS Broad
way, which is u saloon aud hotel.
John Nowak, a Pole, u sort of
politician, who has led his peo
plo for years, owns it. I told
Nowak that I came to see the
fair. He kuew nothing about
what was setting me crazy. I
went to the exposition grounds a
couple of times a day.
"Not until Tuesday morning
did the resolution to shoot the
president take a hold of me. I
could not have conquered it had
my life been ut stake. There
were thousands of people in town
on that day. I beard it was presi
dent's day. All those people
seemed to be bowing to the gveat
ruler. I made up my mind -to
kill that ruler. 1 bouslit a 32
caliber revolver and loaded it.
"On Tuesday night I went to
the fair grounds and was near
the railroad gate when the presi
dential party arrived. I tried to
get near him but the police
forced mo back. They forced
everybody back so the great
ruler could pass. I was close to
the president when he got into
the grounds, but was afraid to
attempt the assassination bocause
thero wero so many men in the
body guard that watched him. I
was not afraid of them or thut 1
Would got hurt, but afraid I
might be seized and that my

stood right near the president,
right under bird, bos the stand
from which he spoil e.
I thought half a dozon times
of shooting while he was speak
ing, but 1 could not get close
enough. I was afraid I might .
miss and then the great crowd
was always jostling nnd I was
afraid lest my aim fail. I waited
Wednesday und the president got
into his carrlugo and a lot of
men were about him and formed
a cordon that I could not get
through. I was tossed about by
tho crowd onU my spirits wero
getting pretty low. I was almost
hoeless that .night as I weot

afraid if I hnd to draw it from
