hornier District-Attorney William T. Jerome appeared this atternoon
at the cxttioiviinary term u the Supreme Court where Police l ieutenant
1 1 Charles Becker is on trial before Justice Golf for the murder of Herman
1 Rosenthal. Mr. Jerome announced that he had been -uhpoenocJ for
the defense and would be an important witness,.
It Is understood that Jerome is to he used to Impeach the testimony
of Jack Hose and Vallon as to the whereabouts of Hecker at a certain
lime. Jerome Is expected to sweat thai Becker was in his company at
the hour mentioned.
Lite this afternoon the Prosecutor announced that his case was
closed. John P. Mclntyre at once made the customary motion to dismiss
the Indictment and to have ihe Court Instruct the jurv to acquit the de
fendant. Mrs. Rosenthal, widow of the -lain gambler, testtitied .it the morn
ing session and endured the ordeal without giving way to her emotions.
John P. Mclntyre, Becker's 'counsel, confined his cross-examinalion
of Mrs. Rosenthal within a narrow scope after she had testified to the
details of ihe defendant's raid on Rosenthal's gambling house and his
statement to her that it "had to be either him or Herman" and that he
could not, therefore, avoid making the raid, she also brought in the
alleged Becker investment of SI, 500 in her husband's resort.
GENTLE IS HIS CROSS-EXAMINATION.
Mr. Mclntyre was as gentle as ;'. cross-examiner could be in hi, hand

voice, replied V him she looked him squarely in the eye and anvered"

Discovery Complicates Surgical Case,
but Doctors Declare Wound Will
Quickly Heal and Patient's
Condition Is Excellent.
WIFE AT HIS BEDSIDE
NOW THE CHIEF NURSE
Roosevelt Spent Restful Night, Ate
Hearty Breakfast and Fear of
Infection Now Seems Remote.
(Special to The eeatfljg World.)
CHICAGO, Oct. 16. The news leaked out this afternoon
that the fourth rib of Col. Roosevelt's right side is fractured.
This is the rib which received the full force of the bullet fired
by Schrank. the would-be assassin, in Milwaukee Monday night.
The X-ray pictures taken in the Emergency Hospital in
Milwaukee did not show the fracture, nor did they reveal the
P exact location of the bullet. This fact made necessary the
taking of. other radiographs in Meroy Hospital yesterday.
These revealed the fracture, it is stated.
A fractured rib adds a complication to the case, but the
surgeons are not alarmed. It was the fracture that caused
Col. Roosevelt pain in breathinrj yesterday pain which has
to a considerable extent disappeared. While the fractured rib
furnishes a complication in the case, it does not add particu
larly to the seriousness of the wound, for all the surgeons fear
is blood poisoning. They have little doubt that the fracture
will heal quickly and cleanly, as Col. Roosevelt's general health
was never better.
PHOTO HAPnBU i r OAI i .
The Evening World called up Dr. John U. Murphy at .Mercy Hoi
pi til, Chicago, over (he un$ distance telephone it 1 o'clock this afternoon
I (12 o'clock Chicago time) and asked tor the la test news concerning Col.
Roosevelt's condition and pjotpeCtS, Dr. Murphy! tone was much more
Confident to-da than when he talked over the lone; distance wire with The
Evening World yesterday.
"I low is the patient to-day?" asked The Evening Workt.
"He -says he is fine," replied Dr. Murphy, "and I can indorse Ws
statement. His condition b very Rood, much better than it was yester
day. His temperature is down to about 98 and his respiration and pulse
are much more favorable.
'Hut the best siifii ot all is the almost total absence of pain or irrita
tion in the pleura, caused by the injury la the rib which stopped the bul
let In the chest wall. TWs pain waa present yesterday and caused some
concern, b is plain that ihe subsidence ot the irritation at the point
where the rib s affected Is a sign thai things are in pretty good sliope at
that particular location."
"How about the possibility ol blood poisoning?" the doctor was
"Thai has diminished," he replead. "Thai liability diminishes bi
proportion as the general condition of the patient improves. The longer
the signs f blood poisoning are absent the more the doctor is heartened,
lor the absence Ol Sirh -i :ns indicates the heallliy state of the wound."
NO SYMPTOMS OF BLOOD POIS
ONING HAVE APPEARED.
