REPUBLIC SPECIAU
Buffalo, Sept. 13. Hope and fear alter
nated all day among the watchers In and
wound the Mllburn house. Every fragment
of Information was eagerly rought In th!
hope that It might he construed to mean
that the danger had passed. nn! that rea
sonable hope of the President's recovery
might be entertained. Members cf the Pres
ident's family, the physicians, the officials
of the Government and all who passed In
and out of the house during the day were
Questioned as to the President's condition,
but little of an encouraging nature could
be learned.
The truth was too evident to be passed
over or concealed. The President's life was
hanging In the balance. The watchers felt
that at any moment might come the an
nouncement of a change uhlch would fore
shadow the end.
When the plight improvement noted In the
early bulletins Mas maintained during the
afternoon and It was learned that the Pres
ident was taking small quantities of nour
ishment, hope rose that he would pas the
crisis in safety. Everybody knew, and no
attempt was made to conceal it, that the
coming night would. In all human proba
bility, decide whether the President was to
live or die. It was known that he was be
ing kept alive by heart stimulants, and that
the physicians had obtained a supply of
ox gen to be administered if the worst
came. .
TREES PLEASE THE EYE OF
DYI2tG PRESIDKVT.
During the day President McKlnley was
conscious when he was not sleeping. Early
in the morning, when he woke.he looked out
cf the window and saw that the sky was
overcast with heavy clouds.
"It Is not so bright as it was yesterday."
said he. His eyes then caught the waving
leaves of the trees glistening with rain.
Their bright green evidently made an agree
able impression upon him.
"It is pleasant to see them." said he,
feebly.
As fast as steam could bring them, the
members of the President's Cabinet, his
relatives and the physicians, who had left
Buffalo, convinced that the President would
recover, were whirled back to this city.
They went at once to the house In which
he was lying and the information which
they obtained there was of a nature to
heighten rather than to relieve their fears.
All night the doctors had worked In the
sickroom to keep the President alive.
PRESIDE.NT FCM.Y REALIZED
HIS CRITICAL CONDITION.
The day broke with a gloomy sky and a
pouring rain. It seemed as though na
ture was sympathizing with the gloom
which surrounded the ivy-clad house, about
which the sentries were steadily marching.
Secretary Cortelyou and Mr. Mllburn had
announced at halt past 4 o'clock that the
efforts of the doctors had produced a rally.
Mrs. McKlnley was then sleeping and
great care was taken 'to prevent her from
fcelng awakened. Doctor Mann and Doctor
Mynter had left the house for a Tirlef rest.
Secretary Wilson of the Department of
Agriculture came out about 5 o'clock. "The
President Is rallying," said he. "but he has
been so very.low that the doctors had to use
etlmulanls to. keep-hlm up. He may have !
reached the lowest point. That I cannot
tell. But. at any rate, he is notas low as
he was an hour ago."
Secretary Wilson teturned half an hour
later and announced that the President
j was conscious and fully realized his condl-
maintained. Doctor Rlxey left the house
for a breath of air at half past' 5 o'clock.
"The President Is holding his own," said
he. "I hope the rally will last. I do not
admit that the case Is hopeless."
MXE O'CLOCK nl'LLETIX
SLIGHTLY E:CCM RAOIIVG.
Secretary Hitchcock and Mr. Mllburn ap
peared soon after the President awoke, at
half past C o'clock. They said that both
Doctor Rlxey and Doctor Stockton believed
the President still had -a fighting chance.
"I do not haul down the flag yet," said
Mr. Mllburn. No bulletin Was Issued at 6
o'clock, ns has'been usual since the Presi
dent foil ill.
Almost as soon as It became light men and
women began to gather at the ropes which
have been tretched across the streets a
block away In each direction from the Mil-
burn house. As the day wore on the crowds
increased, and were even greater than they
were on the day after the President was
shot.
After the wounds had been dressed and
the morning consultation held the Presi
dent's physicians Issued a 9 o'clock bulletin.
which read as follows:
"The President's condition has somewhat
Improved during the last few hours. There
is a better response to stimulation. He Is
conscious and free from pain. Pulse, 12S;
temperature, 99 S. P. M. Rlxey, H. D. Mann,
Roswell Park. Herman 'Mynter. Eugene
Wasdln, Charles G. Stockton. George B.
Cortelyou. Secretary to the President."
DOCTORS REPORT SLIGHT
IMPROVEMEXT'OXLY.
Doctor Mann and Doctor Mynter came out
of. the house at a quarter before 10 o'clock,
after the first bulletin of the day had been
Issued. They were Immediately besieged by
questioners seeking to learn exactly what
was going on In the sickroom and what
was to be feared.
"Is the President conscious?" was asked.
"He Is," replied Doctor Mann.
"Have you given up hope?"
"By no means." replied the surgeon.
Vis he better than when you last saw
him?"
"He Is better than he was In the early
hours of the morning," repll.'d Doctor Mann.
It was during the early hours of the
morning that the President's sinking spell
was at Its worst, so that those who heard
Doctor Mann were able to draw but little
encouragement from his words. Doctor
Mynter could say nothing that seemed more
favorable.
"I am not absolutely without hope," said
Doctor Mynter. "The President has a
fighting chance, but I would be more hobe-
f ul if the day had passed and lie had gained
a little strength. There has been some im
provement since the early mornlmr. but It
has been very slight. The trouble lies with
his heart. We are stimulating it', and our
treatment has been fairly successful."

BY SPECIAL TRAIN.
But little encouragement was drawn from
the bulletin issued at S o'clock. It was
noted that, while the President's tempera
ture had fallen, his pulse had risen fivf
beats in the minute, from 123 to 12S. which
showed that hlsheart was bcatrrg like the
ticking of a watch.
The conclusion was drawn that the Ap
parent improvement in his condition was
due solely to the action of the digitalis,
strychnine and other medicine that had been
given to sustain the heart action.
Senator Hannu, who went to Cleveland
the 'day beforo yesterday. Jubilant in the
certainty that the President was going to
get well and that he might safely attend
the meeting of the G. A. It. in his home
city, reached the Mllburn house at two
minutes before 10 o'clock. He was one of
the first to be informed last night of the
alarming symptoms which had made their
appearance.
Senator Hanna, In his anxiety to reach
the President's bedside, had come from
Cleveland, a distance of 1S3 miles, at the
rate of sixty-eight miles an hour. When
he received word of the unfavorable turn
of' affairs In the Mllburn house, he tele
phoned to the officials of the Lake Shore
road to make him up a special train imme
diately. So promptly was the order obeyed
that the train was waiting before Senator

SIRGEONS DISCUSS CAUSE
OF PRESIDENT'S COLLAPSE.
Leading Members of the Profession in St. Louis Ascribe It Entirely
to Weakened Heart Action, and Xot to Any Derangement of
the Digestive Organs Doctor Brokaw Says Septic Poison
May Also Have Contributed to the End.
Several prominent physicians and sur
geons. Interviewed by The Republic last
evening, agreed that the President's col
lapse was due entirely to the weakened
heart action, and not to any derangement
of the digestive organs through the admin
istration of nourishment. They believe that
President McKlnley had a weak heart for
some time, and that his kidneys were also
In bad order. This, they say, would have
resulted in such collapse as took place yes
terday morning. The strain under which
the patient has been for a week told upon
him and his heart weakened still more.
Another theory advanced Is that the
much-dreaded septic poisoning, a constant
COFFEE DISEASES.
Minister and Young; Lady Affected.
Ministers sometimes find they suffer from
the effects of bad habits as well as ordinary
people.- Reverend 'Mr. of Athens,
N. V., had become greatly emaciated from
coffee drinking, which produced stomach
trouble and all of the effects of overwork
orpoor nourishment.
He quit the coffee and began drinking
Postura Cereal Food Coffee.
His health began to Improve and he now
weighs 151 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 a? he has done for an experi
ment he begins to lose flesh and get back
into his old condition.
A young lady who writes about the case
says that she was formerly suffering great
ly from "those twin diseases," dyspepsia
and -nervousness. "I knew that- both of
the diseases had their origin In the use of
soffee. and while 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 place.
Tea, I knew, was also Injurious, and "s
for cocoa, it lacked the "snap and go' which
can. alone satisfy a coffee drinker's taste.
About two years ago I. purchased .my flrat

directions and found I had a.; drink not

An Interesting view of the' President's
case was given to The Republic yesterday
by Doctor I. c. McElwee. who .has han

Presidents. .,

"With Senator Hanna came Mrs. Hanna,
Judge Day of Canton, Colonel Myron P.

Indiana, Mrs. Duncan and Miss McKlnley,
sisters of the President; Miss Duncan and
Mrs. Herrick. They Joined Secretaries "Wil

Baer, Abner McKlnley, Mrs. Lafayette Mc
Wllllams, Mr. Mllburn, Wilson S. Blssell,
John N. Schatchcrd and Representative
Alexander, who were in the house.
The new arrivals were Immediately In
formed of the critical condition of the
President and their faces, which had been
grave, became still graver as they'Ilstened.
James F. Chard called at the house at 10
o'clock. "
"There Is some nervousness Inside, I will
admit," said he when ho came out.
"Has Mrs. McKlnley learned of the Presi
dent's true condition?" was asked.
"She Is somewhat worried," replied Mr.
Chard, "as she has not yet seen her hus
band. She started to make her regular
morning visit, but was told that she had
better postpone it for a time. She was sur
prised, because she did not understand why
It was deemed better for her not to see
him."
Word was received during tho morning
from the absent officials of the Government
and friends who had been notified of the
President's relapse. It was known that they
were hurrying back to this city from the
various points to which they had come
after leaving here.
Vice President Booscelt sent word from
the Adirondack camp, where he had hardly
arrived before the recall reached him, that
he would return as quickly as possible.
STEPS TAKES TO AOTIFY
THE VICE PRESIDENT.
Ansley Wilcox, who entertained Vim Pres
ident Roosevelt while he was In Buffalo
earlier In tho week, and who is a close per
sonal frl'nd. explained the steps that had
been taken to. notify the Vice President, the
Importance of whose presence in this city
was becoming hourly of greater Importance.
"I telephoned and telegraphed to William
Loeb, the Vice President's secretary. In Al
bany, at 5 o'clock this morning.
"He arranged Immediately for a special
train to take him to the Adirondack. Mr.
Roosevelt was going out Into the woods to
day, and was undoubtedly prepared to
stav."
Early In the morning, on the advice of
the surgeons. Doctor Kdward Janeway of
New Tork City and Doctor W. W, Johnson
of Washington were summoned. Mr. Bu
chanan said that the two physicians would
arrive during the evening, and that the sur
geons bad done their work v. ell.
Governor Yates of Illinois called at the
house about half-past 11 o'clock to getns3
of the President's condition and also to con
fer with Secretary Cortelyou In regard to
Illinois Day at the Pan-American - Exposi
tion. With him was Colonel Russell B. Har
rison of Indianapolis, who is a member of
Governor Durbln's staff.
"I talked with Mr. Mllburn about post
poning Illinois Day." said Governor Tates,
"but they told me they were hopeful that
the ceremonies could be held as they had
been planned. If the President's condition
does not Improve, however, the ceremonies
will be postponed."
Colonel Harrison said that the Indiana
day exercises which were to have been held
to-morrow, 'would not take place.
"A patient may continue in the condition
in which the President tow Is," he said,
"for some" time, and then Improve or not,
'as the case may develop. The president
is In a very, serious condition, but it is ab
surd to say that he is dying." "-
Colonel Herrick left the Mllburn' house at
a quarter past 12 o'clock for luncheon.
"All I can Say. ' said he. "Is that there is
a fighting chance. There Is nothing new
from the sickroom."
Senator Hanna left ' the house at 12:30
looking Tery' grave."'
"I am. always. hopeful. said the Senator,
Tnat is my nature. Vhen I drov:e ud this
Wn&hlngtcn, Sept. 13. The news that
President McKlnley was dying came aj a
crushing blow to the nation's capital. Xo
where. perhaps, had the citizens been to
full of confidence In the ultimate recovery
of their beloved President, and the buojant
bulletins cf the last tteek from the sick bed
had lulled them Into a false oensc of se
curity which made the shock terrible when
tho nens that the Buffalo tragedy would,
hnve a fatal ending came to them.
All day long the bulletin boards' were sur
rounded by crod9 -naltins in suppressed
excitement .for pie-latest word from the
Mllburn home,- and numerous nowspapert
extras were eagerly snapped up. Little
work was done in the great executive de
partments, a", at the slightest excuse, the
clerks dropped their pens and turned to
talk in a email, awe-stricken group of the
chances that their chief magistrate had
against death in the gallant struggle he
v,as making in the far-away city on the
lake.
CAHft'ET OFFICERS PRCPAHC
TO TAKE M:EDEI ACTIOX.
The three Cabinet cSflcers In the city to
day were pictures of distress. Two days ago
Secretary Hay had left his chief appar
ently on the road to recovery, and to-day
Postmaster General Smith, who had left
Buffalo even later' and arrived here this
morning, said that when he came from tho
Mllburn home yesterdayahe President was,
according to his best Ih'formatlon, surely 'on
the mend. '' ' '
The Postmaster General returned to Buf
falo on the 7:10 train, to-night. Secretary
Hay had engaged accommodations on to
night's New England train. Intending to Te
turn to his New Hampshire summer home
for much-needed rest, but canceled the or
der early in the day,. as on him devolved,
the Important functions at once on the
President's demise.
He 'divided his time between the State
Department and his home, waiting for lha
end in patient resignation, prepared for his
sorrowful duty of convejing to the nations
of the world in official form the news of tho
demise of the third President through the
agency of an assassin's bullet within the
short space of one human life.
As the senior member in rank of the Cab
inet, upon Mr. Hay's shoulders also will
rest the burden of government of the great
Republic in the short but Important inter
val that must elapse before the Vice Presi
dent, under the terms of the Constitution,
assumes the cares and responsibilities of
the great presidential office.
At his home at Woodley Secretary Gage
mournfully awaited the close of his chief's
life. Durlnj the day he had been nt the
Treasury Department and had kept In
touch with financial affairs. In order that
the President's end might not cause any
commcrc'al disturbance that foresight ron
the part of his department could avert.
AVII.I, HESIfiX, HIT MILL
PHOII.UII.Y nn ASKED TO REMAIN".
General Gillespie, Acting Secretary of
War. stuck at his post in the War Depart
ment for the purrose of making such army
orders as the sad event would force him
to Issue. He got into communication with
General Miles at Seattle, and the latter
notified the department that he would re
turn Immediately.
The fact that the physicians had given up
all hope caused some discussion among the
'public men In the city o'f the probability of
an extra session of Congress .and of early
changes In the Cabinet, but consensus of
opinion was that no Cabinet changes or
particular departures In public policy were
at all likely for some time to come, and that
Congress would not be assembled until its
regular session in December. All the Cabi
net, tho chief diplomatic officials and heads
of Important bureaus, according to cus
tom, will tender their resignations to relieve
thj President of embarrassment, but It is
believe! Mr. Roosevelt' would follow the
precedent set by President Arthur, after
Garfield's demise, and request them to con
tinue In office. Some of the Cabinet mem
bers are not In good health, and would sin
cerely, welcome a relief from their offices,
but all would waive their personal desires
ana continue until sucn time as they could
be relieved early If, indeed, they request
relief at all.
I'BETTY INCIDENTS IN" THE
PRESIDENT'S MFE RECALLED.
'In many of the local churches to-day men
and women assembled for quiet prayer that
the life of the President might b3 spared.
The largest of these meetings was held at
tha Metropolitan Methodist Church, where
the President and Mrs. McKlnley wor
shiped. Here many men and women of
fered earnest prayers that the life of the
President might be spared. A number of
them quietly told of pretty Incidents on the
part of the President that they had wit
nessed and dwelt especIaUy on bis fond
ness for children.
"Do you remember Children's Day?" said
one of tho Sunday-school teachers, 'qrhen
he Invited the little beys who could not
find seats to come in his pew? They were
so proud and happy."
"They say that just a little while before
he was shot," broke In another, "he had
shaken hands and spoken the kindest words
to some little child."
Thus. Incident after incident. Illustrating
the kindness, the love, the charity, the re
ligion of the President, was recalled by the
little group of women standing around his
empty pew.
took It for a good omen. I wish I could,
give you better news."
MAIN HOPE WAS TO KEEP
HIM ALIVE TILL TO-DAY.
Secretary Cortelyou. at five minutes after
1 o'clock, gave out the following bulletin.
dated at 12:30:
"The President's physicians rerort that
his condition Is practically unchanged since
the 9 o'clock bulletin. He Is sleeping quiet
ly." Mr. Cortelyou explained that the physi
cians did not lislre to disturb the President
tit that time for the purpose of taking his
temperature and pulse.
Much surprise was expressed at the state
ment In the 2:30 bulletin that the Presi
dent's condition was more favorable than it
had been at half past 2 on Thursday after
noon. The only construction that could be
placed upon these words was that the phy
sicians had known twenty-four hours before
of the extremely critical condition of the
President, and that they had not explained
It In the bulletins.
Secretary Cortelyou camo over to the
newspaper tent at a quarter before 4 o'clock
and asked that that portion of the bulletin
which compared the President's condition
with what It had been yesterday evening,
and which had caused so '"much sjrprlse, bo
stricken out. He said that the physicians
had Intended to make the comparison with
the President's condition as it was early this
morning, when It was at Its worst.
Secretary Cortelyou said that' there ap
peared to be no organic trouble with the
President's heart, and that there would not
be another consultation of the physicians
until evening. He said that the question
was one of merely keeping up the Presi
dent's strength. Strychnine and digitalis had
been given him for his heart, said the Sec
retary, and If he lived until to-morrow
there would be hope for his recovery. The
Improvement In his condition was so slight,
he said, that It was difficult to say whether
it constituted any actual 'improvement or
not.
WHEN THE SATIOJf KNEW
THAT THE END WAS NEAR.
There was no materlat change in the situ
ation until the next bulletin from-Mr. Cor
telycu, dated at a quarter before 6 o'clock,
was distributed. As soon as It was known
that oxygen was being administered, all
knew that the beginning. of the end had
ccme. -This bulletin was as follows:
The President's physicians report that
suffering from extreme prostration. Oxygen
13 being administered. He rcsoonds to stim
ulation but poorly."
As the oxygen had been provided only as
a last resort, everybody knew that Its use
meant that the President's hour had come.
His condition was such that thero was no
hope of his gaining strength through the
stimulants sufllclcut to enable him to com-l-at
death.
After this announcement, the bulletins
telling the story of the final struggle fol
lowed each other rapidly. The streets In
front of the bulletin boards were filled with
men and women, who watched sadly each
fresh announcement of the nearer approach
of the end.
The relatives of the dying President, the
members of his Cabinet and those personal
friends who were In the house took their
icavo of him.
The party assembled In the drawing-room,
and one by one they ascended to the sick
room. The scene was painful, and the si
lence was broken only by sobs.
After all had seen Mr. McKlnley, the sit
uation developed Info one of mere waiting
for the announcement of the President's
death. Several times It was thought the end
would come In a few moments. Secretary
Cortleyou sent tho official announcement
from the house at half-past 9 that the
President was slowly dying.
