Washington, Oct. 7. A desperate
hand-to-hand encounter with an aimed
insane man, who was determined to
see President Roosevelt in the vestibule
of the White House occurred shortly
before noon today. ,The man, who
gave his name as Peter Elliot, and his
home as Minneapolis, Mae overpoweied
by the officers on duty "at the White

van which had been summoned. He
was placed in the van in the custody of
Seeming to realize then, fcr the first
time, that he was under arrest, Elliot
began a furious struggle with his capt
ors for liberty. He drew a revolver
and attempted to shoot Officer James
Ciscle. The officer grabbed his hand
and wrenched the weapon from his
erasD. Elliott's struggles were so
fierce, however, that the two officers in
the cramped quarters of the van were
unable to overcome him. Officer Cis
cle then drew his revolver and fired two
shots to attract attention.
Chief Usher Thomas Stone, and Offi
cer Parker, o! the White House force,
who had assisted in carrying Elliot to
the van, attracted by the shots, rushed
back to the vehicle and assisted in
overpowering him. In a struggle with

panel with his head, severely cutting
his head and face. Officer Ciscle sus
tained a serious cut on ms right arm,
two inches of flesh being cut out of the
fleshy part of the arm. He suite ed
considerably from loss of blood, but his
ininries are not serious. The van was
hurried to the emergency hospital,
where the injuries of both Ciscle and
Elliot were dresred.
Late this afternoon the police sur
geons, after a careful examination of
Elliot, certified that he was insane.
An order was issued for his removal to
the St. Elizabeth hospital for the in

noon without trouble.
CASTRO EVENINQ IIP.
Immense Immigration of Cheap Labor
From Southern Europe.
Albany, N. Y." Oct. 7. The state
department of labor, in its quarterly
bulletin, attributes the diminution in
. . . .
an unprecedented degree oi employ
ment and wages reported in June as al
most wholly to labor disputes.
"The lockout in the building trades
of Manhattan and Bronx boroughs of
New York City," it nays, "overshad
owed all other disputes of the summer
and threw seveial thousand wage-earn
ers out of work." In general the bul
letin holds that, exclusive of the build
ing trades, New York industries were
generally as active as in the summer of
1902, which was a banner year.
According to the bulletin, immigra
tion this summer has exceeded even the
record-breaking current of last year.
