full text
Theodore Roosevelt (protection); Theodore Roosevelt (criticism).
Named persons
William McKinley; Theodore Roosevelt.



     We would like to believe that our new president is entirely safe from the attack of an infamous assassin any where [sic] and unattended, but we can’t feel that way. He is no longer simply Colonel or Vice President Roosevelt but is now President Roosevelt, and there will be the same desire and perhaps premium for his life that there was for McKinley’s and by his rashness, amounting almost to recklessness, he seems determined to give the assassin every opportunity to kill him. A little more discretion would be no mark of cowardice.
