NEW YORK, April 18. The con

who yesterday wan struck in the jaw
by a bullet intended for Mayor
Mitchel of New York, wan reported
satisfactory today. He rested well
Inst night nnd surgeons nt the New
York hospital jinid ho would be able
to resume his duties in n few days.
Michael P. Maliouey was arraigned
today for the shooting. Ho was
charged with assault with intent to
kill. It was believed be would be
sent to the nsyluni at Matteawan for
the insane, as Mayor Mitchel recom
mended this course.
"Mnhoney," said Mitchel today, "is
a mra-soak?d hobo, sodden, embit
tered and probably insane. Kxcept
for his advanced years, be is a char
acteristic product of cheap whisky
bars. He might be imprisoned for
twenty years for tho attack and this
would mean life in bis ease. I be
lieve it would bo better to send him
to Matteawan. '
"The shooting- probably resulted
from the weakening of Muhoney's
mind under henry drinking. I am
satisfied thcro was no conspiracy to
take my life."
Mahonev paced his cell throughout
the night. He declared that he went
to the city ball once before to mur
der Mitchel, but tbo mayor emerged
from his office between two women.
"And n man could not shoot down
another in tho presence of Indie-.,''
Will Take No Chance
Mayor Mitchel visited Polk at the
hospital early today. Hereafter
eight, detectives will guard tho mayor
light mid day.
"It was n close slinve," said Mitchel
today. "And hereafter I don't pro
pose to take auy ehanees."
Mnhoney told tho police todar that
he was reared In Newnort, Ky.
Maliouey was arraigned before
Magistrate Siiiims. Ho was held in
fJj.OOO bail for the action of the
grand jury. When Assistant District
Attorney Vidier asked that the bail
be fixed nt that amount Mnhoney
"Whv don't you demand n little
higher amount T" he asked.
The shooting was described by Po
lice Commissioner Wood, who left
the city hall with Mitchel und Polk.

"before ho could fire a second shot.
