immediately preceded the assault on Mr. McKinley are thus told by Secret Service Detective Ireland:

"A few moments before Czolgosz, the assassin, approached, a man came along with three fingers of his right hand tied up in a bandage, and he had shaken hands with his left. When Czolgosz came up I noticed he was a boyish-looking fellow, with an innocent face, perfectly calm, and I also noticed that his right hand was wrapped in what appeared to be a bandage. I watched him closely, but was interrupted by the man in front of him, who held on to the President's hand an unusually long time. This man appeared to be an Italian, and wore a short heavy black moustache. He was persistent, and it was necessary for me to push him along so that the others could reach the President. Just as he released the President's hand, and as the President was reaching for the hand of the assassin, there were two quick shots. Startled for a moment, I looked and saw the President draw his right hand up under his coat, straighten up, and, pressing his lips together, give Czolgosz the most scornful and contemptuous look possible to imagine. At the same time I reached for the young man and caught his left arm. The big negro standing just back of him, and who would have been next to take the President's hand, struck the young man in the neck with one hand, and with the other reached for the revolver, which had been discharged through the handkerchief, and the shots from which had set fire to the linen.

"Immediately a dozen men fell upon the assassin and bore him to the floor. While on the floor Czolgosz again tried to dis

POR the third time in the history of this country the hand of

an assassin has been raised against the President. But whereas in the cases of Lincoln and Garfield there were strong partizan feelings to account for assassination, in the present instance, as many papers point out, it is difficult to conceive a motive for such a crime. Lincoln lived in troublesome times, remarks the Philadelphia Public Ledger, "when sectional hatred burned fiercely in the breasts of the defeated hosts of the South"; and Garfield was stricken during a period “when partizan rancor filled the land with angry contention and clamor”; but McKinley has ever sought to "maintain social peace and amity" and to “make friends of all men and enemies of none." The Ledger continues:

“At the moment his life was attempted he was engaged in a voluntary act of devotion to the public good. He went to Buffalo to add to the Exposition the dignity and prestige of his office. The duty he discharged was not mandatory; it was discretionary, and rendered through pure good-will and patriotic impulse. And it is worthy of note that only on the previous day the President had addressed a multitudinous audience of his countrymen on the vital policies of the time, and never during his entire public career had he spoken with more assured wisdom or courage. His address on that occasion was sentient with the spirit of the most saga cious statesmanship and patriotism ; it was that of a shrewd, honest, brave, farseeing man of affairs; a recognition of economic conditions due to the changing influences of time and development.

"The President of the United States should have been at Buffalo immune from the perfidy of political, factional, or of personal enmity even. The faithful, willing servant of his countrymen, he was there in the sacred trust of serving them."

The attempted assassination of the President took place in the Temple of Music at the Pan-American Exposition, during a public reception. The events which
