SCHRANK CLAIMS FREE CONSCIENCE Roosevelt's Assailant From Cell, Declares Nothing 13 Bothering Him. BULLETS NOT POISONED Man Who Fires Shot Found to Own $25,000 New York Prop erty. Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 17. "Why shouldn't I sleep well? There's noth- I ing bothering my conscience." This was Schrank's remark this morning when asked how he rested. Schr&nk showed the sheriff several pages of written matter which he pre pared yesterday, but refused to give them up. Part was written in German and part in English. It was headed, "Fortresses Are God," and consisted of a large number of disjointed sen tences pertaining to third term candi dates. The writing did not make much sense. Colonel Roosevelt, the district attorney said, would not be summoned to attend the trial. The large number of witnesses who saw the shooting will be sufficient. SiO POISO rOCKD. John Schrank did dnot poison the bul- i C o.onel Roosevelt. A chemical examination was made of the bullet which were not used and which were found in the revolver of the assassin, but no trace of poison was iouna. me examination was made by Sommer and Worthington, chemists, Wednesday. "We made every kind of an exam ination possible," said Mr. Worthing ton, "but there was not a single trace. Of course, there is a chance that the one he used might have had poison on it, but it is hardly possible, since it was one of several bullets he might have used and which were not pois oned."

So far Schrank has not manifested any desire to see a law yer, and the local lawyers are not looking for the opportunity to defend him. ENGAGES THREE ALIENISTS. District Attorney Zabel has taken all the preliminary steps for the effort of the state to prevent the success of any possible plea of insanity. It was learned that Zabel yesterday1 named a commission of three alienists to test Schrank without his knowl- i edge, watch his acts and converse ' i with him, and it is understood that these men have been in the jail al- j Zabel has not given out the names ' of the commissioners, but inasmuch i as Dr. Wa ter Kempster, one of the j alienists in the Guiteau trial, who tes- l titled for the government at that iime, is a Milwaukee man, it is presumed 1 that he Is one of those chosen.

"Now, Schrank," said Sheriff Arnold, "a number of people have asked to see you; several newspaper men out side want to talk with you, and there is a man who wants to take your pic ture. Do you want to see them?" "No," said Schrank, "I am tired. I have told all that I know and I am not going to talk any more. They have taken about 40 pictures of me, and that ought to be enough for the newspapers in the entire United SUtes." Schrank Is Indignant because sever al of his questioners have seemed to doubt some of his statements. I "I have used my own money all the way through. When I get my papers 1 here you will find out I own property in New York a flat building. I have the deed for it in my suitcase in the Mosely hotel. I don't belong to any organization and I want people to be lieve that." TIlorGHT FRJRNIX MIGHT COME.

"Oh, just some friends," he answer ed. "I guess tliey won't come any way, so it doesn't matter." Schrank was asked whether he wanted to talk with a lawyer.

"It is a matter of general knowledge that the primaries in Detroit this year were tho most corrupt on both sides ever known," said Murfln. "Just as bad on one side as on the other, but our people were the most skillful and we got the delegates. But both were absolutely rotten. Both sides barter ed for delegates like so many sheep. Some accepted money from both sides." KEW YORK BANK RECORD.
