Struck Down for Treason

     LOGANSPORT, Ind., Sept. 9—While A. J. Robinson, a retired business man [sic], was discussing the McKinley shooting, a bystander remarked with an oath that it served the president right. Although Mr. Robinson is over sixty years old, and the other fellow is young and powerful, Robinson felled him with a terrific blow on the jaw. The man ran, or he would have been mobbed by a crowd which gathered. Robinson was a canal boat captain in early days, and a dangerous fighter.
