dore Roosevelt was shot and slight
ly wounded last Monday night a3
he was leaving the Gilpatrick hotel
for the coliseum to make a speech
The vpund was superficial and
the colonel went on to the hall and
began his speech after he had seen
the assassin arrested and taken to
the police statjon
The assassin whose name is John
Schrank is small of stature admit
ted firing the shot and said that
any man looking for a thiid term
ought to be shot In notes found
in the mans pockets at the police
station were statements that the
man had been visited in a dream by
the spirit of William McKinley vvho
had said indicating RoWvelt this
is my murderer avenge my death
Colonel Roosevelts life probably
was saved by a manuscript of his
speech which he delivered tonight
The bullet struck the manuscript
whichVetarded its force as it passed
through into the fleh
The assassin was prevented from
firing a second shot bv Albert H
Martin one of Colonel Roosevelts
two secietaiies Colonel Ron eve t
had just stepped into an automobile
when the assassin pushed his way
throught the crowd to the street
and fired
Martin who was standing in the
car with the colonel leaped to the
mans shoulders and bore him to the
Captain A 0 Girard of Milwau
kee who was on the front seat
jumped almost at the same time
and in an instant the man was over
powered and disarmed
A wild cry of lynch him went
up fom the crowd Colonel Rosse
velt spoke to the people and told
them to spare the assassin The
man was taken into the hotel and
held there until he was removed to
the police station
In spite of the entraties of physi
cians Colonel Roosevelt insisted up
on delivering his address
I wU make thfs speech or die
oiiq pr the other
Colonel Roosevelt completed his
speech at 945 oclock and was taken
to the emergency hospital Six
physicians examined Colonel Roose
velts wound They found it im
possible to determine the depth to
which the bullet had penetrated
and wjis decided to turn tm X ifty
The prisoner told the police after
an hours examination that he was

was panic stricken by the announce

them by rising and assuring them
that he was not badly injured Then
He began his address Several times
he seemed to be growing wpakantj

Martin caught the flash of the
revolver as the shot was fired and
leaped over the car a second after
the bullet sped on its way Colonel
Roosevelt barely moved as the shot
was fired Before th crowd knew
what had happened Martin who is
six feet tall and a farmer football
player had landed squarely pn the
assassins shoulders apd bore him to

In -another second he had disarmed
Colonel Roosevelt stood calmly
looking on as though nothing had
Martin picked the man up as
though he were a child and carried
him the few feet which separted
them from the car almost to the
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 had attempted his life before
the stunned crowed realized what
was going on Then a howl of rage
went up
lynch him
Lynch him kill him cried a
hundred throats The crowd pres
sed in on them and Martin and Cap
tain Gil ard caught with their prison
er in the midst ofa struggling throng
of maddened men It seemed for
the moment that the assassin would
be torn to pieces by the infuriated
crowd and it was Colonel Roosevelt
himself who interfered on behalf of
the man
dont hurt him
He raised his hand and motioned
imperiously to the crowd to fall
back stopgtop he cried v stand
bapkj dont hurt him
Tho crowd- at fiirst wasrnot dis
pofod to hoed his word but at
length fell back and permitted Mar

man into the hotel After a short
struggle the assassin gave up and
was carried without lesistence out

As soon as they reached the liulc

was impossible to hazard a guess
as to the extent of the colonels
juries and tlpt ho Ghouhfby all

I will deliver this speech or die
one or the other was Colonel
Roosevelts reply
out on the stage
Despite the protests of his physi
cians the colonel strode out of the
dressing room and to the stage
Several thousand persons packed
into the big building cheered hmdly
as he entered and without a word
to indicate what had happened went
to his seat For several minutes the
crowd no hian of whom suspected
that the colonel bore a bullet in his
body kept up its cheering
Then Mr Cochems stepped to the
front of the platform and put his
hands up There was something in
his manner that had its effect upon
the crowd andthWeerirftrtiiedl
suddenly away
I have something to tell you
said Mr Cochems and I hope you
will receive the news with calmness
His voice shook as he spoke and a
death like stillness settled over the
Colonel Roosevelt hasbeen shot
He is wounded he said in a low
tone but such was the stillness that
everyone heard it
A cry of astonishment and horror
went up from the crowd which was
thrown into confusion in an instant
Mr Cochems turned and looked in
quiringly at the colonel
Tell us are you hurt
Men and women shouted wildly
Some of them rose from their seats
and rushed forward to look more
closely at the colonel
Colonel Roosevelt rose and walked
to the edge pf the platform to quiet
the crowd He raised his hand and
instantly there was silence
Its true he said Then slowly
he unbuttoned his coat and placed
his hand on his breast Those in
the front of the crowd could catch
sight of the bloodstained garment
Im going to ask you to be very
quiet said Colonel Rooeevelt and
please excuse me from making you
a very long speech Ill do the
best I can but you see theres a
bullet in my body But its noth
ing Im not badly hurt
A sigh of relief went Up from the
crowd sto
tumultuous- cheering Thoroughly
reassured by the colonels action
that he was in no serious danger
the people presently settled back
into their seats to hear his speech
Colonel Roosevelt began to speak
in firm voice somewhat lower
than its usual tone and except that
his characteristic gestures were less
emphatic than usual there was
nothing about the man to indicate
his condition After he had been
speaking a few moments however
his voice sank somewhat and he
seemed to stand rather unsteadily
Dr Teirell and Colonel Lyon step
ped up to him and the doator in
sisted that he atop
Im going to finish this speech
said the colonel emphatically Im
all right let me alone Dr Ter
rill and Colonel Lyon sat down
again The colonel continued hie
speech evidently with jpgroasng ef
forts but he suwepdod In making
hjmelf iVeaid and taked for more
than an hour Then he was rushed
to his automobile and flashed thru
the streets to the emergency hos
An examination of the wound
showed that it had bpen made by a
bulletof Ifirpe Bize It entered the
fleshy pait of the right breast half
way between the collar bono and
the lower The physicians found
that thoy knew no more after the
examination than before as to the
location of the bullet and it was de
cided to send for an X ray machine
to determine to what depth the mis
sile had penetrated
After a long cross examination
Colonel Roosevelts assailant talked
The shooting was UlQ result of a
lad plan by Schrenk
Which ohen was frustrated but in
which he finally succeeded according
to his story
The man talked freely after hi
first stubborn refusal o give his
name when he wanrreated by Ser
geant Mouoy at tho QilpMrick hotel
According to his story he former

and came to this country with his
parents when he was nine years old
He had been engaged in the sajpn
