Senator Fairbanks and Judge Day came
out shortly after Senator Hanna departed.
They would not discuss the case beyond
saying the president was holding his own.
Senator C. M. Depew, accompanied by
his son, niece and nephew, reached the
house at 12:60. From a newspaper man
and Colonel Myron T. Herrick he obtained
information as to the president's condi

entering the house.
Heart Trouble Not Understood.
Toward 1 o'clock the reporters were
definitely informed that the physicians be
lieved if the president could be carried
through the night there would be hope of
his recovery. The administration of nour
ishment has been practically discontinued,
as the rectum is much irritated and does
not retain the enemas. Only a small
amount of nourishment is consequently
returned. The president is very weak,
and the heart trouble is not thoroughly
understood. It was in the belief that
Doctors Johnston and Janeway might be
of service in elucidating the exact trouble
that they were sent for. They are both
expected to-night. The president is in
constant danger of a sudden sinking syell
and complete collapse.
The bulletin Issued by Secretary Cor
telyou at 1:05 o'clock, dated 12:30 o'clock,
was not signed by the physicians.
The secretary himself explained that
the physicians did not desire to disturb
their patient's sleep to take temperature
and pulse. The bulletin officially con
firmed the statements which have cyme
from the Milburn residence that the presi
dent is holding; his own. Dr. Wasdin was

At half-past 1 o'clock the president was
still asleep and the heart action was suffi

awakening him for treatment. Up to
that hour no other treatment than saline

of digitalis had been administered.

HAY ON GUARD
Secretary Remains in Washington,
According; to Arrangement.
Washington, Sept. 13.—The untoward
news from the president's bedside came
upon Washington with almost as much of
a shock as was caused by the first re
port of the murderous attack on him.
Secretary Hay was among those first
notified of the turn for the worse in the
early morning and he considered for a
moment whether or not he should hasten
to Buffalo. He declined not to do so,
but to remain on guard at the national
capitol ready to meet here any emergency
that might arise.
This decision was in line with a de
cision reached by the cabinet members in
Buffalo, when it was determined that the
secretary of state should await a summons
from his colleagues before returning to
Buffalo. Therefore the secretary came to
his office early and after puttiag himself
in communication with the White House
and thence with the Mllburn house at
Buffalo, sat vigorously scanning the bul
letins that came in and awaiting any call
that might be made upon him. He looked
worn and nervous and anxious to the last
degree, but maintained his usual calm de
meanor and proceeded with the discharge
of his routine duties, among the first of
which was the reception «f the Chinese
minister, who called in great agitation to
express his deep concern and sympathy.
Postmaster General Smith arrived here
at 9 o'clock to-day from Buffalo. Until
early this morning he had no intimation
of the president's changed condition. He
hurried to the White House, accompanied
by Senator McComas of Maryland. After
• glancing over the dispatches received
, there, Mr. Smith announced that he
rtlnlster and Young Lady Affected.
Ministers sometimes find they suffer
from the effects of bad habits as w,ell as
. ordinary people. Rev. Mr. ■— of
Athens, N. V., had become greatly emaci
ated from coffee drinking, which produced
stomach trouble and all of the effects of
( overwork or poor nourishment.
He quit the coffee and began drinking
Postum Cereal Food Coffee.
His health began to improve and he now
weighs 161 pounds, an increase of fifteen
pounds over his former weight. This im
provement in health and strength is shown
to be due to the use of Postum Food Cof
' fee, by the fact that when he stops drink
ing Postum —as he has done for an ex
periment—he begins to lose flesh and get
back into his old condition.
A young lady who writes about the case
say* that she was formerly suffering
greatly from "those twin diseases," dys
pepsia and nervousness. "I knew that
both of the diseases had their origin
in the use of coffee, and wiile I was fully
aware of its injurious effects upon my
system, I was not willing to give it up,
for I did not know of anything to take its
"Tea, I knew, was also Injurious ,and
as for cocoa, it lacked the 'snap and go'
which can alone satisfy a coffee drinker's
taste. About two years ago I purchased
my first box of Postum Food Coffee and
• quit the use of coffee. I made Postum ac
cording to directions and found I had a
drink not only equal to coffee, but far su
-1 perior to it in many ways. Since that
time I have used it constantly and find
my general health very much improved,
and the 'twin diseases' gone. I also- send
you the names of Rev. and Mrs.
of Athens, N. V., who have been greatly
helped by the use of Postum Food Coffee
in the place of ordinary coffee."

Noon—No official information has been
made public at the White House since the
bulletin of the physicians at 9 a. m., but
from messages received direct from Mil
burn house at Buffalo, it is learned that
the president is believed to be in a very
critical condition, though expressions of
hope are received at the same time. Those
officials at the White House, however,
who know the contents of the messages
take a very gloomy view of the situation.

Little Excitement on Stock Ex
change, but Americans Decline.
London. Sept. 13.—News of the presi
dent's serious condition is just getting cir
culated in London. It was at first re
cs'.vc-d with much incredulity, but as the
bulletins from Buffalo continued to accu
mulate, it began to be believed and created
the greatest solicitude.
The stock exchange opened without any
excitement of any kind. Dealers were
disinclined to trade at all. The only
transaction thus far was in Atchison, To
peka & Santa Fe, at 75% to 74%. The
brokers spent the most of their time dur
ing the first half hour in watching the
tape, telephoning the news and waiting for
private cable confirmation from-New York.
Extreme doubt of the news was general,
the turn for the worse in President Mc-
Kihley's condition "being so sudden that
it was feared that possibly some colossal
stock jobbing scheme was being worked.

JUDGE TORRAKCE'S CAREER
Enrolled a* a Private and Carried a
Musket Three Year».
Judge Ell Torrance was born in Alexandria,
i Westmoreland county, Pa., May 16, 1844, the
J eldest of three brothers, all of whom served
in the union army. His father, Rev. Adam
Torrance, at the age of 62, entered the ser
vice as chaplain of the Eleventh Pennsylvania
reserves. Comrade Torrance came of sturdy
Scotch-Irish stock, noted for its patriotic de
votion, his ancestors having served in the
colonial and revolutionary wars, and _ in
every subsequent war, including that for the
preservation of the union. . 1"
Although under, military age, he was, June
26, 1861, enrolled as a private in Company A,
Ninth Pennsylvania reserves, and for almost
three - years carried a musket, participating
in all the battles in which his regiment was
engaged - except when disabled by wounds.
His regiment was among those that suffered
severe losses in battle. /'i r-V .
On May 11, 1864, he was discharged frith his
regiment at Pittsburg, Pa., by reason of expi
ration of term of service, and on July 9 fol
lowing re-entered the service as second lieu
tenant of Company X, One Hundred and
Ninety-third regiment Pennsylvania volunteer
infantry, and on Oct. 15, 1864, was transferred
to the Ninety-seventh regiment Pennsylvania
volunteer infantry and assigned to duty at
Baltimore, Md., where he had -the honor 'of
guarding the body of the martyred president

position socially and in church circles, while
Judge Torrance soon became a leader in hia

FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 13, 1901.
The Chicago Judge Who Is to Hear the Cases
Will Hold Court in Another Than
This Was Deemed Prudent in View of a Popu-
lar Determination to Deal Summarily
Chicago, Sept. 13.—Because of threats of
lynching the prisoners, made by angry cit
izens on the streets this morning. Judge
Chetlain decided to hear the cases of the
anarchists in the criminal court building
instead of in the county building. The
county building is in the down-town dis
trict where bulletins telling of the presi
dent's condition are liberally posted.
The anarchists are locked up in the jail
just to the rear of the criminal court
building, the two being connected by a
covered courtway. It is five blocks from
this to the building where Judge Chetlain
Sheriff Hagerstadt moved among the an
gry crowds this morning and heard threats
of lynching freely made. Fearing that
an attack might be made in bringing the
prisoners down town, he went to the judge
and requested .him to make the change.
He told Judge Chetlain the crowds were
angry and that every bulletin from the
president's bedside made them more
"The anger of the crowd Is Justifiable,"
said Chfef of Police O'Neill. "I feel with
them, but there will be no lynching in
Chicago. It will toe impossible. The
sheriff's precautions are wise. It has
been a long time since I have seen a crowd
as angry as this one was."
The Heurinj* Open*.
Hearing on the writ of habeas corpus
issued Wednesday for the release of the
anarchists under arrest here was held be
fore Judge Chetlain in the criminal court
at 11:40 a. m. Judge Chetlain arrived
at 11:30 a. m. and a few minutes later
the nine prisoners, charged with con
spiracy to kill the president, were led in
and given seats behind a row of bailiffs.
Sheriff Magerstadt was present in person.
Throughout the room were deputy sheriffs
and detectives in olain clothes, the sher
iff having determined to take every pos
sible precaution against trouble.
The writ of habeas corpus having been
complied with by the production of the
nine prisoners in court, counsel then
made returns in' behalf of the sheriff, the
chief-of-police, and Justice Prindiville,
who, according to the petitions, had the
prisoners under restraint illegally. The
prisoners were Abraham Isaak, Abraham
Isaak, Jr., Clemens Pfuelzener, Hippolyte
Havel, Henry Traveglio, Michael Rose,
Martin Rosenick and Morris J. Fox.
Emma Goldman was not present, but
Justice Prindiville had promised to fol
low whatever decision was made by Judge
Asks Release of Clients.
Leopold Saltlel, representing the prison
ers, opened the argument, asking for the
release of his clients on the grounds that
they were being held without legal rea
son. He claimed, in an excited voice,
that all the papers In the case were in
sufficient, and had been issued under false
Judge Chatlain interrupted to say it
appeared to him that the case was still
a matter for Justice Prindiville to settle.
The case, he said, was still pending be
fore the magistrate, who had agreed to
hear it Sept. 19.
Mr. Saltiel thereupon launched into a
lengthy discourse to show that the upper
court had jurisdiction. Not a scintilla
of evidence, he said, had been produced to
show that the prisoners .were guilty of
"conspiring to murder the president," as
charged In the complaint.
John E. Getting, as counsel for the pris
oners, followed Mr. Saltiel. When Judge
, Geeting ceased speaking, Dr. Taylor, for
the city, said the only question was the
jurisdiction of Justice Prindiville. Hia
argument was technical, tending to up
hold the authority of the lower court and
the legality of the official acts of Magis
The case was postponed until 10 o'clock
to-morrow, morning, no decision being
given on any of the points raised.
"BIG JIM" PARKER
Something About the Nefro who
Leaped on the Assassin.
Buffalo, Sept. 13. —James Benjamin Par
ker, or "Big Jim" Parker, as he is gen
erally called, the negro who jumped on
the president's assailant and would have
killed him had he not been pulled off, has
been a lion ever since. He has sold the
buttons off his coat and waistcoat for
Bums ranging from $5 to $20 apiece, and
finally parted with all the clothing he wore
during the struggle to visitors who wanted
them as souvenirs.
It wa3 not until Saturday afternoon,
when he had nothing else left, that he had
time to get his photograph taken. These
went off like hot cakes on Saturday night,
and the photographer expecta to work his

When "Big Jim" came around to the
Buffalo club Monday afternoon to see
Senator Hanna, in response to a special
invitation, he was resplendent with new
raiment and his pockets were lined with
greenbacks and jingling with coins.
Senator Hanna came forward with out
stretched hand and shook hands warmly
with the negro. He made him a little
speech, in which he told Parker how brave
he was and thanked him for his loyalty
to the president and for his promptness
in springing to his assistance.
The senator asked the negro to tell him
just what happened, and Parker in his re
cital left out much of the trimming with
which he had embellished his story to
hero-worshiping Pan-American visitors.
"And if they had not ha' pulled me off
I'd ha' saved the police and the soldiers
and everybody else a mighty sight of
trouble." was Parker's last remark as the
interview closed. Senator Hanna's eyes
twinkled, but he made no comment.
Fifty Feet of Fuse Found in an An.
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 13.—1n a frame
building on Broadway, the Cleveland de
tectives have discovered evidence which,
while not tending to prove the existence
of an anarchist plot against President Mc-
Kinley, will at least serve to hold the
men who were arrested in Chicago.
As soon as information was received
here of the arrest of Edward Wolclzynskl
of this city in Chicago, Sergeant Doran
and Detective Schmunk were detailed to
search the house in which he lived at Xo.
1870 Broadway. They found stored away
on top of a cupboard fifty feet of fuse,
such as is ordinarily used in the manu
facture of dynamite bombs. The informa
tion was at once telegraphed to the Chi
cago authorities. Wolcizynski, while in
this city, was employed as a writer on a
Polish newspaper known as the Star.
HE ORGANIZED ANARCHISTS
< zolgOHz Did a Great Deal of Talking
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 13.—1t was
learned here to-day that Leon Czolgoiz
made a tour of the anthracite coal regions
I about six years ago. He was employed
for a while by the Lackawanna Coal com
pany at Duryea, this county, and while
there is said to have organized a lodge of
anarchists. He could speak several lan
guages and soon became popular with the
foreign element. He was known then as
Fred Neimen. People who at that time
came in contact with Czolgosz say he was
seeking notoriety, and whenever the an
archists met he insisted on doing all the
talking. His theory was that the condi
tion of the working people in this country
would never be improved until the doc
trines' advocated by the anarchists were
put into practice.
It Will Be Increased in View of Pos-
Kible Attempt to Lynch.
Buffalo, Sept. 13.—Owing to the critical
condition of President McKinley the guard
of the prisoner at police headquarters,
which had been reduced gradually with
favorable news from the president's bed
side, will immediately be restored to its
This step was decided upon at noon
after a conference of the police commis
sioners and Superintendent Bull. Com
missioners Rupp and Cooper both were
present. It can be said that Czolgosz will
be protected from any mob which may as
semble. No chances whatever will be
be taken. Force will be used to disperse
any crowd which may gather.
WOILD KILL. ROOSEVELT

not do so, and bought one for New York.
Light Ball for Most.
New York, Sept. 13.—Johan Most, arrested
last night on the charge of circulating lnc«n
diary literature, was arraigned in the police
court to-day. At the prisoner's request his
examination was set for Monday, Sept. li>
The assistant district attorney asked that
Most be held in $2,500 ball, but the magistrate
said the prisoner was charged only with a
misdemeanor, and fixed the bail at $l,oou.
Most was locked up in default of ball,
