The conclusions reached by the commission are us follows: •'First—John Sehrank Is suffering from Insane delusion, grandiose in character and of a systematised va riety. "Second —In our opinion he Is in sane at the present time; "Third —On account of the con nection existing between delusions and the act with which he stands charged, we are of the opinion he is unable to confer Intellguntly with counsel on the conduct of his de fense." Srhrank was conducted from the countg Jail to the city hall by a strong guard, but without being handcuffed. Arriving at the Muni cipal court on the fifth floor, he sat beside his counsel, James C». Fland ers. The prisoner was pale, although he appeared not to be excited, lie rested his right and left elbows al ternately on the arms of the chair, with either hand resting on his Jaw.

"The shot at Mllwutikee. which created an echo in all parts of the world, was not a shot fired at the cltlxen Roosevelt, not a shot at an ex-president, not a shot at the can didate of u seen I led Progressive party; not a shot to Influence the pending election, not a shot to gain for me notoriety; no, it was simply to once and forever establish the fact that any man who hereafter as pires to a third presidential term will do so at the risk of his life, if I cannot defend tradition. I can not defend the country In case of war. you may as well send every patriot to prison. "I hope that the ahot nt Milwau kee has awakened patriotism of the American nation, that It opened their eyes to the real danger and showed them the only safe way out of It. as Is proven by the election re turns In the great I)em»»crat||o party. The north, south, west and oast Is once more solidly united and proudly can we prove to the nations of the world that the spirit of 177 b is still alive and shall never die, and that self-government is an establish ed fact and a success. "I have been accused of selecting a state where capital punishment Is abolished. I would say I did not know the laws of any state I trav eled through and if would he ridicu lous for me to fear death after the act, as 1 expected to die during the act and not live to tell the story. If I knew that my death would have made the third term tradition more sacred, I am sorry I could not die tor my country. I "Prison Tor me Is like going to war.
