Parker May Make It Pay
It Is Now Suggested That the People Should Do Something for
Negro Who Hit Czolgocz.
Washington, September 9.—A suggestion was thrown out in the executive department to-day that it would be proper for the American people to do something for colored man Parker, whose prompt action possibly saved the President’s life. The would-be assassin himself complained that it was the stunning blow delivered upon him by Parker that prevented him from firing another shot. Inquiries are being made for Parker’s full name and history.
