Says He Tried to Save M’Kinley

 

Insane Negro Arrested in Atlantic City Told Story in Streets.

     Atlantic City, March 22.—A burly Negro, who says he is James Parker, who risked his own life in an attempt to save President McKinley when the latter was assassinated by Czolgosz at Buffalo, was arrested here to-night in a demented condition. Parker wandered about the streets all day, creating crowds by standing on corners and stelling [sic] his story. Police surgeons say he is unquestionably insane, and friends here attribute his condition to fast living as a consequence of the honors showered upon him.
