Download PDF for this date

President Doumer, the President of the French Republic, has been shot and gravely ###nded while attending an exhibition of paintings by ex-servicemen, at the Rothschild Salons. These are public galleries belonging to M. Solomon Rothschild, who is not connected with the Rothschild family.

The assailant, who has been arrested, is a Russian Christian, named Goguloff.

The doctors state that there is little hope of the President’s recovery.”
