natural, and at this time any other condition might excite apprehension. But it is too early to say that t the very last .element, ■>£ danger is past. Another twenty-four hours probably will be sufficient to permit a conclu cive Judgment to be i formed. In - the . mean time, the president is giving every outward evidence of improvement. He is calm and clear-headed, and he would talk 'did the doc- Cora not prevent it. There has not been a irord staid, among, the, doctors about another operation. It appears to be accepted that in the present stage of the case it is not a time to consider an operation. ' It Is to be noted that this statement suspends final judgment for another twen ty-tour hours, and is a more conservative view of the situation than that so fre quently voiced during the morning. The Vice President. Vice President Roosevelt did not leave the Wilcox mansion, where he is staying, until after the noon hour, and then he walked the mile to the presidential quar ters. Just after he had left the mansion he was accosted by a colored man who was raking a lawn. "Qovemor, may I shake hands with youT" he said. "You certainly may," answered the vice president, turning quickly and grasping his hand, and then as two laborers with dinner palls and tools stepped up he shook hands with them. "Ain't you afraid to be shot?" asked one of them. "No, air," he quickly replied, "and I hope no official of this country ever will be afraid. You men are our protection and the foul deed done on Friday -will only make you the more vigorous in your protection of the lives of those whom you select to office. Such men as you can work with the ballot the salvation of the country without resort to violence." As he walked on, the vice president dis cussed the case of the president and his condition. He said: : I believe the bulletins being is- i : sued are none too sanguine. In : : fact, I know they are not. I t : am perfectly positive that the : : president will recover, and more : : than that, I believe the illness : : will be brief and the recovery : : rapid. I had two men and a : : relative shot in the same manner : : in the Cuban campaign. They lay i : In the marshes for some time : : without attendance, and yet they : : recovered. ! : I may say that I have even : : deeper information than the bul- i : letins, and I again say with i : great confidence that the presi- : : dent will recover. ; The vice president arrived at the Mil burn house at 12:20 and was at once ad mitted. He remained about ten minutes and when he came out he reiterated what he had said above. Mrs. McKtnley Takes an Outing. Mrs. McKialey started for a drive at 2:30. She was accompanied by Mrs. La fayette McWilliams. The absence of the president's wife from the house gave as surance that the conditions were not such as to excite any alarm. Attorney General Knox and Postmaster- General Smith came from the Milburn house at 2:45. They were highly pleased at the outlook, as Dr. Rixey, who is con stantly with the president, told Mr. Knox that when the other physicians came for the 3 o'clock consultation, they would be delighted with the situation. Long Interval* Between Bulletins. Twelve o'clock, one o'clock and two o'clock came and went, and the absence of an official bulletin began to cause some comment, which, however, was tempered, If inclined to be pessimistic, by the fact that the physicians had not been sum moned to come back to the house. At 2:15 p. m. there had been no official word form the sickroom since 9:30 in the morn ing. hope: succeeds pear First Bulletin Disquieting—Events at Milburn House. Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 9.—Presi dent McKinley has gone through the early part of the crisis in his case without ma terial sacrifice of strength or the appear ance of dangerous symptoms. There was an unsatisfactory note in the first bulle tin of the morning in the reference to the restless night passed by the president. Borne consolation was drawn from the statement that the sufferer had slept fairly well, but the general effect of the bulletin was to break down some of the prevailing optimism and create fresh anxiety as to immediate developments in the case. The circumstances of the previous day had been favorable and the popular an ticipation was that the tidings from the sick room would continue to bo encourag ing. The bulletin created a feeling of uneasiness that seemed to be shared by all who read it. It was known that the patient was well" within the crisis and the fear was created that the restlessness ■was the forerunner of some of the dire tilings feared as possible results of the wounds. It was also pointed out that it was one of the few unfavorable things ■aid by the official bulletins and several disturbing rumors were put in circulation. The general state of the sufferer remains unchanged, however. Favorable Conditions. A slight decline in temperature and an inclination of the pulse and respiration to return toward normality were favorable conditions and the official statement gave an assurance that no unfavorable symp toms had shown themselves. The doc tors still incline to a very hopeful view of the case and Insist that at present it does not present a single unsatisfactory feature. They Bay that several complica tions fraught with serious consequences may come up, but they do not now antici pate that any of them will* appear.. The president holds bis own so far in the crucial hours. The morning hours at the Miltourn house were very quiet, few of the occu pants of the home wera astir early, and save for sentries, police, newspaper cor respondents and telegraphers, the street was deserted. A few workmen as they passed to their daily toil passed near the house to ask as to the condition of the president. Shortly after daylight a small crowd gathered on West Ferry street. Impaired Digestion May not be all that is meant by dyspepsia now, but it will be if neglected. The uneasiness after eating, fits of nerv ous headache, sourness of the stomach, and disagreeable belching may not be very bad now, but they will be if the stomach is suffered to grow weaker. Dyspepsia is such a miserable disease tttat the tendency to it should be given oarly attention. This is completely over come by Hood's Sarsaparilla which strengthens the whole digestive ay steu The police and military restrictions have been somewhat relaxed, but the Milburn house Is still carefully guarded and no one Is permitted to approach it with out a challenge and explanation. Weather Favors the President. Shortly after 8 o'clock the doctors, who had not taken part in the all night vigil began to arrive. Dr. Wasdin, the marine hospital specialist, waa the first to reach the house and joined Dr. Rixey, who has remained at the president's bedside prac tically throughout the night. Dr. Parke came at 8:15 and it was apparent that the morning consultation of all the physicians soon would be held. At this time all was quiet about the 'Milburn household except for the coming of the doctors. Secretary Cortelyou, who had been on duty on and off all the night, was catching a little needed rest in an upper chamber. Aside from the pathological conditions of the case, circumstances to-day were peculiarly favorable for the patient. It was an ideal September day with bracing air, moderate temperature and a light breeze blowing over the entrance to the Milburn house. The aun shone brightly most of the time with now and then the shadows of light fleecy clouds. The physi cians were quick to note these external conditions, for they contributed greatly to the comfort of the patient and gave assurance against the depression of ex treme heat or inclement weather. The morning consultation of the physi cians brought out the assurance that the condition of the president was entirely satisfactory and as they came away from the house they expressed renewed confi dence in his recovery. Dr. Parke Cheerful. The doctors began assembling about 8 o'clock and it was 9:15 before any of them come away from the Milburn house. Pend ing their conferences there was an anx ious wait. Several visitors arrived, in cluding Former Postmaster-General Bis sel and Charles P. ganger. Mr. Bissell was one of the first to emerge from the house after the doctors had completed their consultation, and in a brief general way he summarized the situation by say- Ing that the conditions were favorable, al though he had no details. A few moments later Dr. Roswell Parke and Secretary Wilson came out together. Dr. Parke an swered the many inquiries with a cheer ful and very positive assurance of confi dence. "The situation is entirely satisfactory," said he, "and there are no symptoms to cause alarm." He was asked if the earlier bulletin re ferring to the president's "somewhat restless night" warranted any apprehen sion. "Not in the least," he replied. "It is entirely natural that a patient in the president's condition should have some periods of restlessness, but he is receiv ing no anesthetics. He is fully conscious at all times Avhen he is awake, and his mind is clear." Quite Able to Talk. When asked if the president conversed with those about him, the doctor said the patient was quite able to talk, and did so as far as the physicians permitted, al though they were reluctant to permit him to sap any of his energy in this way. Secretary Wilson, who moved on down Delaware avenue while Dr. Parke was talking to the newspaper men, was over joyed with the word which the physicians had brought from the sick room. t : : "The president will get well," i j he said several times. "I feel it : : and I am sure the doctors now : : feel it. Of course, the critical : : point has not been passed, but : : the continued absence of vnfa- : : vorable symptoms strengthens : : our hope. The period for peri- : : tonitis to appear is rapidly pass- : : ing away and there is not a sign : t of inflammation. The prompt- : : ness with which the operation : t was performed and the skill with : : which it was accomplished are : : telling their story. The tissues : : were sutured so quickly that : : they probably began to heal im- : : mediately. The president's good : t health and the long life of care- : : ful living behind him are in his : : favor, but above all his indomit- : : able will and his fine courage : : are the factors counted upon to : : pull him through. : : "He has made up his mind to : : live, and live he will. The rise : : in his temperature during the : ; night was somewhat disturbing, : I but his febrile condition is bet- : J ter this morning, and our hopes : : continuo in the ascendant. The : : fact that his slumber during the : : night was restless is not to be : : wondered at. All the cdtoditiona : t under which he is living are ab- : • 2 normal. The water and liquid : : nourishment which he is re- : : ceiving are being administered : : hyperdemically, and that fact : : alone would account for his rest- : : lessness." : Dr. Herman Mynter came from the Mil burn house at 9:30 a. m. He said: Everything is satisfactory. Every hour that passes with no decidedly unfavorable re sults is encouraging and indicative of final recovery. Dr. Eugeno Wasdin, another of the con sulting staff, emerged from the house a few minutes later. He said: There are no distressing symptoms. The restlessness of the patient during the night is not serious and is to be expected when it Is understood that he Elept during the day yesterday. Abner McKinley, brother of the presi dent, arrived at the house of Mr. Milburn at 10:05, and was immediately admitted. "Splendid! Splendid!" Senator Fairbanks and Controller of the Currency Dawes came from the house to gether and their smiling faces indicated the satisfaction prevailing among those nearest the president. "Splendid! splen did!" said Senator Fairbanks, referring to the doctors* last report. Just then Ab ner McKinley and several friends arrived and there wa3 an interesting group on the lawn with the tall figure of Senator Fair banks in the center and Messrs. McKinley and Dawes on each side. The good news from the sickroom was imparted to the president's brother and the latter's friends, and all joined in heartfelt ex pressions of relief. Intense anxiety had been felt over the outcome of the morning conference and the result lifted a great load of apprehension from those nearest and dearest to the president, giving them greater courage than had beeen felt at any time before. When Abner McKinley came from the house at 10:46, he repeated the expres sions of confidence given by those who had preceded him, but added no new de tails on the situation. Senator Hanna drove up as Mr. Mc- Kinley left. The senator seemed to b« in a happy frame of mind, as the satis factory bulletin had already reached him. When a number of photographers levelled their cameras at him, he smilingly said: THE! MIJNJN.UAFULIS JUUKJNAL,. "How many times a day do you fellows expect to do that to me?" A friend of the senator who accom panied him added the jocular comment: "Instead of the camera you hed better put the X-rays on the senator." The passing remarks reflected the happy state of feeling which prevailed among those near the president. The friend who accompanied Senator Hanna proved to be Myron T, Herrick of Cleveland, one of the closet personal friends of the president. He and the senator remained some lme In the house. Henry B. McParland, president of the board of commissioners of the District of Columbia, came from the house at 11 o'clock. "I am satisfied that there is no fur ther doubt of the president's recovery," he said. "The bulletins are exceedingly conservative, and they must be read be tween the lines to get the evidences of im provement. Read in this light and from all the surrounding previous Instances, I believe the president is certain to re cover. Dr. Hermann Baer and his wife, for merly Miss Mabel McKinley, daughter of Abner McKinley, called about noon time to see Mrs. McKinley. MORRIS APPALLED Out on a Hunting Trip and Just Heard the Xc»v». Special to The Journal. Thief River Falls, Minn., Sept. 9.—Con gressman Page Morris returned from a shooting trip on the reservation last even ing. Handed a copy of The Jour nal's account of the president's at tempted assassination, he stood a moment horror stricken, and then, giving a loud cry of grief and rage, hurriedly left the hotel lobby. Later on, hearing of the an archist meetings at Chicago and Patter son, Mr. Morris said they should be hunted down' like mad dogs; the shotgun argu ment is all they comprehend. Speaking of the president, he said: "He is the finest man in public or private life I ever knew." RETURN TO WASHINGTON Cabinet Jfot Expected to Remain in Buffalo Long. Washington, Sept. 9. —The most favor able news yet received in Washington from Buffalo reached Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Ailes this morning from Buffalo over the long distance telephone from Secretary Gage. The secretary said the latest report of the physicians was eminently satisfactory and that the pres ident undoubtedly would get well. Secretary Gage expects to return to Washington in a day or two and will be followed at intervals by other members of the cabinet. It is not expected that any of them with the possible exception of Secretary Hay, will remain In Buffalo for any length of time. Cowardly Detractor Runs Away. Waterloo, lowa, Sept. 9.—There came near being a riot when the public was anxiously matching the bulletin boards for news of thj? attempted murder of the president. One man at the edge of the crowd was heard to re mark, "Good enough for him." He lost no time in getting away, and the man to whom he had addressed the remark refused to di vulge his identity for fear of the conse quences. Several old soldiers were near, and they were excited to the boiling point and would have made short work of the anarchist sympathizer had he been caught. Intense Interest at Winona. Special to The Journal. Winona, Minn., Sept. 9.—Unabated interest continues to be shown here in the condition of the president. In all of the churches on Sunday reference was made to the shooting and fervent prayers were offered. The news stands di a land office business at noon in Belling the twin city and Chicago papers as they arrived. Several hundred extras were on hand and they were hardly enough to satisfy the demand. At 4:30 in the afternoon the Republican and Herald issued a special edi tion that was sent out by carrier and found a large pale. The news of the president's continued improvement caused the greatest satisfaction. Secretary- Hay Leaves for Buffalo. Newbery, N. H., Sept. 9.—Secretary of State John Hay left Newbury to-day for Buf falo. At Boston the secretary expected to meet his wife, who will accompany him to the end of his journey. Polish Day Postponed. Buffalo. Sept. 9.—The delegates arranging for Polish day at the exposition have "in order to emphasize our brief and sympathy for President McKlnley, decided to postpone Polish day indefinitely." Suicide Results. Huntington, W. Va., Sept. 9.—John Thomp son, aged 25, son of wealthy parents, com mitted suicide to-day by shooting. He had talked of nothing since the attempted assas sination and it is believed his mind had be come unbalanced. Epoch of Surgery. Buffalo, N. V., Sept. 9.—Dr. Mcßurney is quoted as saying: "The operation performed at the exposition hospital by Dr. Mann is the epoch of the century in surgery, and, In my opinion, the president will surely recover. Furthermore, the judgment displayed by Dr. Mann in operating as he did within one hour after the shooting, in all probability saved the life of President McKinley. REWARD FOR BODY Search for the Second Missing; Shep herd Boy to Be Renewed. Special to The Journal. Deadwood, S. D., Sept. 9.—A reward of $100 has been offered for the finding of the body of Kirk Shepherd, the missing brother, by his uncle, Orman F. Ong, of Pluma. A searching party of twenty-flve or more men will be made up to-morrow and the country around Ward's house will be searched. Ward's trial will take place some time next week. He still maintains his innocence. Government Will Not Wrong Schley Buffalo, Sept. 9.—Acting Secretary of the Navy Hackett has been pressing At torney General Knox. both by wire and letter, to appoint one of the assistant Attor ney generals to assist Captain Lemly, the judge advocate of the Schley court of in quiry, in the conduct of the case before the court. The attorney general, however, has declined to take a step which he believes would look like the government prose cution of the officer under investigation. The government, in his opinion, should have no part in the inquiry. It is an inquiry under the navy department, made at the request of Admiral Schley, and the government has nothing to do with it. The president himself recommended Admiral Schley for promotion, and now for the department of justice to detail an officer under it to assist in the conduct of the case would inevitably be construed as a desire on the part of the administration to convict Admiral Schley. The attorney general was sustained in his position by all the members of the cabinet whom he consulted. The whole question was gone over carefully at a meet ing held in the Glenny house yesterday. Attorney General Knox wired his decision to Acting Secretary Hackett yesterday. The members of the cabinet have no knowledge of any suggestion of postponing the Schley court. Gracious From Filipinos London, Sept. 9. —Antonio Regidor y Jurado, described as the European represen tative of the Filipinos, has sent the following message to America: In behalf of the Filipinos we desire to express our horror 1 and detesta tion of the dastardly attempt on the life of the president, and to assure him and his courageous wife of our sympathy and prayer's. May he speedily recover to adjust the unfortunate differences between the Fili pinos and America. A fatal termination would be deplored nowhere in the world more than in the Philippines. International Anti-Anarchist Move Maw York Sun SneclalSarvlco Washington, Sept. 9. —The necessity of international co-operation for the sup pression of anarchists has several times been brought to the attention of the ad ministration. Germany and Austria recently suggested an international agreement under which the nations would jointly and separately proceed to stamp out the pest. The time isathand,representatives of European nations assert, when the gov ernments must organize and adopt an effective method of preventing the spread of anarchism. The attempt upon the life of President McKinley may result in the advances of Germany and Austria being encouraged, and an international agree ment may be reached at an early date.

Lizzie Rand was tragic and lacrymose by turns in the municipal court this morn ing in an effort to convince the judge that she should not be punished for taking some collars and other articles from one of the down town stores. Judge Dickin son was not easily moved, however, and calmly said: "Fifty dollars or sixty days." A tragic exclamation burst from the lips of the woman, but she paid the fine and went her way.

BAR OUT WOULD-BE WORKERS As a Result the Bis Tube Plant Is Completely Tied Up. Pittsburg, Sept. 9.-^The strike situa tion in McKeesport reached an acute stage this morning and Berlous trouble was feared as a result of the efforts of tho striking tube workers to prevent men from returning to work as they did Sat urday. The effort was almost perfectly successful, and where last week from 800 to 1,000 men went back into the mill, not more than a dozen were able this morning to elude the multitude of pickets and get back. There was great excite ment in McKeesport this morning as a re sult of this turning out of the strikers, more than at any time yet. Something over 2,000 strikers congre gated about the great plant of the Na tional Tube company shortly after mid night and remained there until this morn ing when the employes who went to work last week reported for duty at 7 o'clock this morning. Every approach to the mill was guarded most vigilantly and around the main entrance more than 600 strikers and sympathizers gathered. The streets adjacent to the mills were crowded and as men approachced to go to work they were met and turned back. Nearly all of the great force who returned last week reported for duty again and there were many more who were willing to go back, but these were met by the picket* as they advanced near the mill. Forced to Return Home. Not over a dozen escaped the vigilance of the pickets and succeded in getting into the mill. About fifty police were on duty about the mill, but no arrests were made. As a result of the disturbances this morning the big tube mill is idle and com pletely tied up. Just what the National Tube company will do now is a matter of conjecture. It is believed by many that an attempt will be made to start the mill with imported men and that an appeal will be made to Sheriff McKinley for pro tection. At the meetings of the lodges of the Federation of Labor in McKeesport yes terday the question of returning to work in the tube mill was voted on. The butt welders voted to return, but were pre vented from doing so this morning by the strikers who gathered about the mill. The employes of the rolling mill of the National Tube company voted to a man not to return. At Demmler a crowd of fully 800 strik ers gathered about the plant, and while they were orderly, they refused to obey the orders of the fifty deputy sheriffs on guard. Fewer workmen reported at Mc- Keesport than last week, the men came by boat from Duquesne. i Hopeful Sign. The air of mystery surrounding the Amalgamated headquarters during last week's conference of the general executive board etill pervaded the rooms to-day. The members of the board were again on hand early, but all efforts to get an ex pression from any of them were futile. The continued session of the Amalga mated executive board is regarded as a hopeful sign. It is now felt that the strikers will accept any honorable terms made by the steel people, and a visit of the Amalgamated officials to New York at any time to deal directly with President Schwab is not Improbable. The situation at McKeesport is looked upon with apprehension and an outbreak is feared at any moment. Locally there is no change. All the mills started by the combine are running. The strikers are not interfering with the workmen. The crucial teat in the strike will come when the steel company starts in earnest to open its closed mills. This, it is said, will be done in a few days and the com bine officials claim that when the strikers realize how many of the old men are at work they will tumble over one another to get back to their old places. As the morning advanced, the excite ment in McKeesport increased and by noon the streets were crowded. A large crowd assembled around the railroad sta tion and carefully watched all trains for imported men. Strikers in skiffs also pa trolled the river. Excitement has not been so intense since the strike began and the possibility of trouble seems to be great. BAYVIEW RESUMPTION - Conservative Striker* Vote to Re .,-''' ." turn to Work. Milwaukee.

The radical element left the hall and the remaining mem bers, not quite half of those in attend ance, voted to return to work and will do so to-day, when the mills will start up. The question of returning to work was debated at length and after every member had had his say, President Joseph D. Redfern ordered a secret bal lot to be issued. An appeal was made. The appeal was referred to the vice president of the lodge, whose duty it Is to act in such an exigency. The lodge wasted fifteen minutes and the vice president failed to take any action on the appeal. Tho radi cal element left the hall in a body. The radicals slightly outnumbered the con servatives. Those remaining in the lodge then voted unanimously to return to work. The result of the meeting will un doubtedly be a split in the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Work ers in this city. The radicals will un doubtedly claim the charter of the as sociation, but President Redfern says, as president of the lodge, he will hold onto the charter, as the action taken at the meeting was constitutional. Trouble is looked for when the men re turn to work to-day. It is believed that more than half the members of the lodge will return to work. Though the radicals outnumbered the conservatives, it is said that had all remained in the lodge when the secret ballot was taken, that the vote would have been largely in favor of returning to work, as a num ber of the radicals, while openly op posed to returning to work, would have voted on a secret ballot with the conserv ative wing of the lodge. Fires had been lighted at the mills preparatory to starting this morn ing whether the lodge voted to return or not. This action of the company, it is believed, was the cause of the ques tion being settled to-day, as the com pany, it is said, was prepared to start the mill with nonunion men. Those who voted to return to work are made up mostly of married men who have worked at the Bayview mills for years and having families to support. The Illinois Steel company, it is said, will continue to pay the same scale as was agreed upon a week before the strike was inaugurated and was, in fact, the scale presented by the Amalgamated as sociation and which contract was broken when the men struck work. It is likely some of the national offi cers will come to Milwaukee to form a new lodge and in Ac future will not rec ognize the old charter. In this event, the men who return to work will con tinue a local association and will treat with the company from time to time as such. Thirty-five Men Resume Work. Thirty-five Amalgamated association men returned to work at the plant of the Illinois Steel company in Bay View to day. Many others are uneasy and are ex pected to return in a few days. Three of the company's mills, the Top and Bottom, 12-inch and rail mill, were started this morning. There was no trouble whatever. Many of the radicals, or those who bolted at the meeting yesterday, acted as pickets to-day, taking the names of all those who went to work. The mechanical department is said to be working almost fully. It is said the Amalgamated men who returned to work to-day will work a twelve-hour shift until more men are secured. Among those who passed through the gates to report for duty were J. D. Hickey and J. F. Cooper, the two men who went to Pittsburg ten days ago to learn the real facts in regard to the big strike, and whose report cre ated a sensation throughout the country. PRODDING SHAFFER Amalgamated Board Trying to Force a Settlement. Pittsburg, Sept. 9.—lf the plans of Pres ident Shaffer were for the executive board to go to New York and confer with Presi dent Schwab of the United States Steel corporation to-day, those plans have been abandoned. While the members of the board did not say so, it was intimated by those in close touch with them that they had plainly told President Shaffer that a settlement was imperative and that he must put him self into communication with President Schwab and have a plain understanding at once. In other words, the executive board of the amalgamated association is pushing the leader for a settlement and to end the battle. It was believed that Mr. Shaffer had either gone to Mr. Schwab's summer home at Loretto or was meeting him in New York. Leaders are making efforts to hold the men in line, with the hope that some means of a set tlement will come In a few days at the furthest. If it fails, the men, it is be lieved, will break away and return to work as individuals. That would be worse than the terms that have thus far been offered by the corporation. At the same time thve delay that has occurred and is still going on, tinder the terms offered, is telling more severely than ever against the strik- ers and their organization. The mills were all closed down yesterday and prepara tions were being made to start them o*" a more even basis to-day. HASTINGS SCHOOLS REOPENED. Special to Tne Journal. Hastings, Minn., Sept.
