DANGEROUS
Bullet of John Schrenk, Would - be Assassin at
Milwaukee Last Night, Did Not Penetrate a
Vital Organ According to Second X-Ray Ex
amination Made This Morning and Prospects
Arc for a Speedy Recovery.
STURDY PATIENT ORDERED
A HEARTY BREAKFAST.
Scene of the Shooting at Milwaukee Was One
of Great Confusion, Crowd Clamoring to
Kill the Man Who Fired the Shot. Roose
velt Insisted on Making Scheduled Speech
and Then Was Rushed to Chicago.
Chicago, Oct. 15. Col. Theodore Roose- A wild cry of "Lynch him" went up.
velt, with the bullet in his chest, which M-oionei Koosevelt spoke to the people
was fired hist night by John Schrenfc
at Milwaukee, was taken to the Mercy
hospitul here this morning after a con
sultation of physicians, who ordered a
second X-ray examination. This exami
nation located the bullet deep in the tis
sues, but apparently a safe distance from
the lung.
.. The telegram sent to Mrs. Roosevelt
after the examination said: "The pres
tnt examination shows no further dan-
) ger beside that of which you were in
formed from Milwaukee. Respiration
good; pulse normal; bullet in safe place;
no blood expectorated."
Dr. Terrell, one of the physicians at
tending the ex-president, said that the
bullet passed through too many sub
stances before it entered the body for
fear of blood poisoning to be imminent.
Col. Roosevelt arrived at the hospital
y automobile from the station, where
he was brought by special ' train. Tie
refused to ride from the station to the
hospital In nn ambulance. In fact, he
walked from the automobile to the insti
tution door, leaning on the arm of Dr.
Murphy. The injured man took off his
hat in answer to the subdued greeting
of the crowd which was waiting to see
him.
Entering the hospital, Col. Roosevelt
walked into the X-ray room without as
sistance, reading a message as he walked.
Once in the
, joke because he had forgotten his paja-
mas on the train, and he also showed
much interest in the preparations for the
radiograph.
After the examination had been com
pleted, the patient said he was hungry,
and he ordered a hearty breakfast, con
sisting of tea, bacon and eggs and toast,
which is his customary morning fare.
Later in the forenoon his secretary an
nounced that Col. Roosevelt would not
attempt to make any more speeches dur
ing the campaign unless un foreseen cir
cumstances should arise. His physicians
said that it was possible that no opera
tion would bo performed, and as soon a
h his condition warrants the patient will
be removed to Oyster Hay.
If an operation is necessary, it can
and told them to spare the man, who
then was taken into the hotel and held
there until he was removed to the police
station.
Roosevelt Insisted on Making Speech.
Tn spite of the entreaties of physicians.
Colonel Roosevelt insisted on delivering
his speech. "I v.ill make this speech
or die, one or the other." he said.
Colonel Roosevelt barely moved as the
shot was fired. Jiofore the crowd knew
what hall happened. Martin, who is six
feet tall and a former football player,
had landed squarely on the assassin's
shoulders and had borne him to the
ground. Tie threw his right arm about
the man's neck with a deathlike grip and
with his left arm seized the hand that
held the revolver. In another second he
had disarmed him.

"I have something to tell you," said e
Mr. Cocheris, "and I hope you will re
ceive the news W'th calmness."
His voice shook as he spoke, and a
deathlike stillness settled over the
throng.
"Colonel Roosevelt has been shot. Ho
is wounded.''
He sokc in a low tone, but such was
the stillness that everyone heard him.
A cry of astonishment ami horror went
up from the crowd, which was thrown
into confusion hi an instant. Mr. Co
chens turned and looked inquiringly at
Colonel Roosevelt.
"Tell us. -ire you hurt!" men and wom
en shouted wildly.
Colonel Roosevelt rose and walked to
the edge of the platform to quiet the
crowd. He raised his hand and instantlv

Littleton, X. II., Oct. 15. One of the
worst tires in the history of Littleton
occurred here about 3 o'clock yesterday,
when a liverv stable owned hy I. V.
Richardson, well known as a hotel pro
prietor, was burned to the ground, caus
ing the loss of one man's life, numerous
I animals and damage to adjacent prop-
Colonel Roosevelt stood calmly looking: there was silence. "It's true," he said.
Then slowlv he unbuttoned his coat and
placed his hand on his breast. Those
in the front of the crowd could catch
a sight of the blood-stained garment.
"I'm going to ask you to be very quiet,"
said Colonel Roosevelt, "and please ex
cuse me from making you a very lonft
speech. I'll do the best I can, but you
see there is a bullet in my body. Rut
it's nothing. I'm not hurt badly."
A sigh of relief went up from the
crowd and then an outburst of tumultu-

Martin picked up the man as though he
were a child and carried him the few
feet which separated them from the car,
almost to tae side of the colonel.
"Here he is," said Martin, "look at
him. colonel." All this happened within
a few seconds, and Colonel Roosevelt
stood gazing rather curiously at the man
who attempted his life, before the
stunned Vrowd realized what was going
on. : Then a howl of rage went up.
"Lynch Him! Kill Him!
"Lynch him! Kill him!" cried a hun
dred men. The crowu pressed in on them
and Martin and Captain Girard.who had
followed Martin over the side of the au
tomobile, were caught with their pris

of maddened men. It seemed for the

I'd Roosevelt himself who intervened in
his behalf. j
He raised his hand and motioned toi
the crowd to fall back. "Stop, stop!"
he cried, "stand back; don't hurt him."
The men in the crowd at first wer
not disposed to heed his words, but at
length fell back .nd permitted Martin
and Girard to carry the man into the
hotel. After a short struggle, the assas
sin gave up and was carried without
resistance out of the reach of the crowd.
"Are you hurt, colonel ?" a hundred
voices called out.
"Oh, no." he responded, with a smile.
"Missed me that time. I'm not hurt
a bit."
"I think we'd better be going on." he
said to the other members of his party,
"or wc will be late."
Xo one in the party, including Colonel
Roosevelt himself, entertained the slight

nearby houses and who had just re

the fire being situated in a congested
part of the business street, where great
loss of property Beemed imminent.
The blaze was caused by the explosion
of a lantern in the haymow and by some

until the fire was well under way. The
company kept the flames from spreading

Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 15. Col. Theo
dore Roosevelt wua shot and wounded
last night as he was leaving the Gilpat-
rick hotel for the Auditorium to make
a speech. The wound appeared sup?r
ficial and the colonel went on to the
hall and began his speech after he had
seen his assailant arrested and taken
to the police station.
A mob surged around the prisoner,
who apparently is mentally upset on
the subject of Roosevelt's running for
pnother term as president.
The man, who is small of stature,
admitted firing the shot and said that
"any man looking for a third term ought
to be shot."
In notes found in the man's pockets'
at the police station were statements
Roosevelt had assured himself that the
assasitin was safe in the hands of the
police, he gave orders to drive on to the
Auditorium.
They had driven hardly one of the four
blocks from the h-tcl to the Auditorium
when John McGrath, another of Colonel
Roosevelt's secretaries, uttered a sharp
exclamation and pointed to the colonel's
breast.
"Look, colonel, he said, "there is a
hole in your overcoat."
Colonel Roosevelt looked down, saw
the hole, then unbuttoned the big brown
army coat which he was wearing and
thrust his hand beneath it. When he
withdrew It, his finders were stained with
blood.
