Secret Service Detail


Chief Wilkie’s Operatives to Guard President Roosevelt.

     The Chief of the United States Secret Service stated yesterday that there will be a regular detail of Secret Service men accompanying President Roosevelt at the funeral of President McKinley today. Chief Wilkie said he did not know how many would be needed as the arrangements for the protection of the President were in the hands of the local police, and that the Secret Service would furnish all the men that were required by the local authorities.
     Chief Wilkie further stated that the formal report of Operatives Foster and Galleher, who were in the President’s party at Buffalo when he was shot, had been received, and had been submitted by him to the Secretary of the Treasury. He said that the report differed somewhat from the report submitted to the War Department by Captain Wisser of the Coast Artillery Corps.
