Back at Sagamore Hill-Stood
Trip From Chicago Well.
The quiet routine of life at
Sagamore Hill was picked up
again )y Col. Roosevelt and his
family Tuesday as though it
had not been interrupted by the
firing of a shot meant to kill the
master of the house, For the
first time since he was wounded
in Milwaukee eight days ago
Col. Roosevelt was unattended
Tuesday night by a physician.
There was no one in the hou e
except members of the- family
and servants and the colonel
spoke hopefully of being able,
after one more day of rest,
gradually to resume his work.
Four physicians were with
the colonel on his arrival at
Oyster Bay from Chicago Tues
day morning and after they
had dressed his wound they
told him that the one essential
was complete rest. If their
directions are obeyed it is be
lieved the ex-president's recov
ery is probable although it can
not be said that he is entirely
out of danger. Dr. Alexander
Lambert and Dr. Scurry Terrell
who accompanied Col. Roose
velt from Chicago were joined
in New York by Dr. Jos. A.
Blake and Dr. Geo. E. Brewer.
After examining the patient
they said the wound was still
wide open, spoke of the possi
tility. of infection and added
they were unable to say w*heth
er it would be pospible for him
to take up work of the campaign
aiyain.

A glance backward will be worth
rhile at this time.
Every panic since the Civil war
riginated and developed under Re

The Republican campaign textbook
f 1904 devoted much space to the

The most serious labor troubles In
e history of the United States have
:curred under Republican high tariffs.
Some Lessons From 1907.
The Republican panic of 1907 fur
ished another forceful refutation of
te Republican claim that Democratic
iminstration and hard times, lower
riffs and panics have been co-ex
,ting.
In 1907, in the midst of prosperity,
iousands of leading banlrs, with hun
reds of millions on deposit, suspend
I cash payments. The trouble began
Sa result of a struggle between
reat New York financial institutions
ir business.

Condemn Themselves.
"The certain and significant thing Is
at It will be known as -a Republican
id high tariff panic. Protest as Re- -
ablicans may, they will be held re
ymsble. Out of their own mouths
te Republican party and the Dingley
es will stand condemned. They fixed
t1896 the standard by which they
mnot escape being judged. In the
arty platform of that year they re
red to the panic of 1893, and the
