Roosevelt Appointee Nott Seriously Injured His j Assailant Shoots Self and! Is Dead. , , SDeclal to The Fre Press. New York, November 9. Post master Edward . M. Morgan, of Nowi York, was shot this morning, as he was leaving his home, by EriO; 11. B. Mackey, a stenographer in a law office. Four vears ago Mackay escaped from an insane asylum atj Worcester, Mass., where he hadl been confined for a year, after hej had waylaid and shot a man in J Roxbury, Mass., in precisely the' same manner as he waylaid Mr.l Morgan. . Mr. Morgan probably will owe his life to the fact that just as thej crazy man jumped in front of lilm-j lilm-j lilm-j his little daughter. Dorothy, wlthi whom he was walking, pulled hinV- hinV- until he swung partly around and received the bullet from the side instead of directly in front. The bullet entered the left side of the abdomen and passed out the rlghtj side, the course taken being abouti eight inches long. Not Seriously Hart. i An operation performed by DrJ Titus Bull showed the bullet haH just grazed the smaller intestine in its course, but there was no per-.' per-.' per-.' foration. it was aescriDea Dy mi doctors later as a flesh wound. Mr. Morgan was in splendid physical condition and the doctors declaredu there was no reason to look for any dangerous complications inter- inter- fering with his recovery. He was perfectly conscious tonight and' resting easily, though suffering-5 suffering-5 suffering-5 some pain. Immediately after shooting the postmaster, Mackey fired three shots at himself. Olio went wild, the second hit him in the breast and the third went into his brain. He fell in the gutter. was,p.iflked up and his face covered by a newspaper ami lay on the sidewalk in view of folks hurrying for the subway for over an hour, when his body was finally takeii to the police station, whence it was later removed to the morgue. Insane Desire tor Revenge. Mackey had been working as a stenographer in the law offices o Hunt, Hill & Bets, at 165 Broadway. Broadway. He was quite inoffensive and his employers saw nothing to indicate indicate that he .was insane, though they had been notified that he had been in an asylum and had taken French leave of it. That he picked out Mr. Morgan above air others as the person who had injured him and upon whom he must be revenged was due to the simple operation of one of the rules of the postoffice department, with which Mr. Morgan personally had nothing to do. That rule requires requires that when registered mail is sent to a person doing business under a trade name that person, must produce a copy of the certificate certificate filed with the county clerk showing his right to that trado name. Thought Himself Persecuted. Mackey has registered both aa Harold Saxon and as Joshua Daniel-son Daniel-son Daniel-son & Co., in running a dancing academy for a short time under the first name and intending to do a. real estate brokerage business under under the latter name. He had hired a lock box for the mail he received and he could not understand, apparently, apparently, why, owning such a box. be should have to go through the formality of showing his right t the trade names. The legitimacy ot. ills business was not involved. He had been nagging the post- post- office with many requests and petty., complaints, to all of which he got i back tiie usual formal letters sign-., sign-., sign-., eil with the postmaster's name. ' though of course written by subor-tj subor-tj subor-tj ilinates. All this had its effect on,i a mind that had been deranged ap-J ap-J ap-J parently for years and subject toi delusions of persecution. Loaded With Weaaons. j Mr. Morgan did not know his aJ sailant, who had called several J times at the postmaster's home to a ask if he was in. and had then de-d de-d de-d : parted without leaving any messagM . or stating the object of his calLJ I Shopkeepers and residents of the J ! neighborhood had seen him lurkine j I about in the vicinity of the Morgan i .home for a full hour and a half oe-1 oe-1 oe-1 ! fore Mr. Morgan emerged.
