dropped into a peaceful sleep
The physicians said sleep would
aid wonderfully in his recovery.
Roosevelt was sitting up in
btd this afternoon reading Mc
Cruley's essays. When Medill
McCormick left the colonel's
room he said: "Roosevelt is still
in active charge of his campaign
though it has been decided, to
his regret, that his speaking
tour be abandoned."
It was announced from
Roosevelt's room that Mrs.
Roosevelt would arrive in Chi

ing Investigation of New
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. IS. John
Schrank. who attempted to kill Colo
nel Roosevelt, looked little the worsa
for a night spent In a cell reposing on
a plank for a bed. Schrank called for
a cup of coffee and something to eat
shortly after 7. He was given a sand
wich, which he ate, tnougn he said his
appetite was not very keen. The pris
oner probably will not be taken Into
ccurt today. It was planned to have
him Dertlllioned during the day and
await advices of his record from tha
New York police.
STICK TO STORY.
The assailnnt still sticks to his story
that the shooting was the result of a
vision which came to him some time
ago. Asked as to whether it was his
desire to kill Roosevelt, he said it was
not Schrank is a single man and
claimB he had but one sweetheart. She
was Emily Ziecler. he said, and she
was lost In the disaster to the steamer

NOT WORRIED, APPARENTLY.
Schrank appeared unpurturbed over
the consequences awaiting him as a
result of the shooting. Schrank talked
rationally this morning. As to his pol
itics, he said usually he voted the dem
ocratic ticket, but sometimes he voted
as a republican. The weapon which
Schrank used Is of the deadly 38 cal
ibre. It is the kind used extensively
in the army, and Is made to "shoot to
kill." Schrank does not have the ap
pearance of a laborer. His hands are
smooth aa though unusued to toil. He
talked fluently at times, using excel
His appearance Is that of an intelli
gent man and to the police he does not
seem like a man Insane. The police,
however, believe he is afflicted with
some mental disorder. His stories of
dreams and visions, and curious let
ters and clippings found In his pock
ets seemed to bear out this theory. It
was apparent to all who saw him that
Schrank was thoroughly In earnest
and he felt it was a matter of high
duty to kill Roosevelt.
SCHRANK IN COURT.
Schrank was taken In court at 10: no
for a preliminary hearing on a charge
of attempt to kill.
As soon as Schrank left the court
room Judge Neelen called District At
torney Zabel and City Jailer Faulus
to the bar.
"Who has the revolver and remain
ing cartridges?" asked the judge.
"I have," replied Pauius. "I am
holding thorn as exhibits in the case."
"Well, I desire to have a chemical
examination made of the remaining
bullets to determine if they are pois
oned," said the judge. "I therefore or
der you personally to take the revol
ter and bullets to Professor Somer
for a chemical test. I also ord'tr that
the test be made Immediately and the
information of the results conveyed to
me so I may be in a position to e
graph Roosevelt's surgeons in case th?
teat shows there may yet be fun her
complications in the wound from poi
son." IHII. KIVK.lt AT 7,-.00.
District Attorney Zabel stood on the
opposite side of Schrank and read the
formal charge of attempted murd'-r.

the district attorney has JiiHt read
