Famous Surgeon Says: "The Indi

Well, the Chief Element of
Danger Being Infection."
The Evening World called Dr. John B. Murphy, the famous Oii
cago surgeon, who is In charge of the case of Col. Roosevelt, on the long
distance telephone at 2 o'clock this afternoon and conversed with him
about the Colonel's condition. Dr. Murphy was at Mercy Hospital in
Chicago and had just left his distinguished patient.
"Can The Evening World say to the people of New York, as com
ing from you, that Col. Roosevelt will get well? "Dr. Murphy was asked.
"The Evening World may say," he replied, "that the Indications are
that the Colonel will get well. Unless complications set in unless blood
poisoning or some other form of infection intervenes the Colonel will
