TWO SHOTS FIRED AT 7RESIDENT
FALLIERES MISS MARK.
National Fete Marred by Attempt to
Assassinate Chief Executive by
Naval Rc6ervlst Police Have Diffi
culty In Preventing a Lynching.
Paris, July 15. Tho national feto
vas marred by a dastardly attempt
on the llfo of President Fallleres by
Leon Maille, n naval reservist of
Havre, who, it is believed, is suffer
ing from the mania of persecution.
Maille fired two shots at the president,
but did not hit him. He was at ouco
placed under arrest.
On account of the activity of tho
antl-mllltarists, who trjed to organize
a demonstration against the army
throughout France, exceptional pro
cautions were taken to safeguard
President Fulllcres. The attempt on
his life occmred on Avenue des
Uhamps-Elysses while the president
was returning to the palace from
liongchnmps, where ho had reviewed
the garrison of Paris In the presence
of 250.000 enthusiastic people. Pre
mier Ciemenceau and M. Lanes, tho
president's, secretary, were with 'the
president in his landau, which was
escorted by a squadron of cuirassiers.
I he carriage had safely emerged from
the Bois de Boulogne, where the antl
militarists had stationed themselves
with tho Intention or hooting the sol
diers, and was descending the broad
Champs-Elysses amid the acclama
tions of the crowds thronging the side
walks, who were shouting "Vive Fal
lleres," "Vive l'armee," when, at tho
comer or LqSuor street, Maille, from
:he curb, fired In quick succession two
shots point blank at the president.
Miraculously no one wos hit. Presi
dent Fallleres was cool and collected
when tho cortege stopped. The diplo
mats, who were following the presi
dent's landau, alighted from their car
riages and hurried to the side of M.
Fallleres. Findlnc that nobody had
been injured, .by the president's or
ders, the cortege moved on. In the
meantime two policemen seized
Maille, who made no resistance, but
the police with difficulty prevented the
irate crowds from lynching the prison
er until a cordon of reserves
camo up and conducted him to the
station. There Maille refused to give
any reasons for his act, saying: "The
revelations I have aro so grave and
serious that I will only make them be
fore a magistrate for transmission to
the clilef of state. It Is a matter be
tween he government and me. I am
the victim of many villianies."
Say Maille Fired in Air.
Some of the witnesses of the shoot
ing said that Maille fired in the nlr.
It Is oelleved that the man partici
pated in tho recent seamen's strike
and that his mind had been unhinged
by fnncled grievances. It Is believed
also that he aided in tho revolutionary
cgltntlon of tho general federation of
labor and the anti-militarists. There
Is no reason to suspect a plot, as
Maille only arrived here from Rouen
Tho attempt on the life of President
Fallleres will probably strengthen
the government's Intention to put an
end to the anti-mllltarism, which Is
already oomoralizlng tho army and
becoming a menace to tho republic.
Thirty-nine ringleaders were ar
rested for hissing soldiers who woro
returning from tho reviews. Other
nrrests were made at the Place de la
Concorde, where tho Leaguo of Pat
Hots held their annual ceremony.
