Buffalo, N. IV. Sept. H. Mr. Roosevelt
left North Creek at 5:43 a. m., arriving In
Albany at 736. He Immediately boarded a
special train. The car on which he was to
travel was locked. The train pulled out of
the Albany Btatlon at 8:02 and passed
Schenectady, the first telegraph station,
seventeen miles distant, at 8:27 a. m.
Whin President Roosevelt reached North
Creek an attempt was made to Interview
him. but he refused to talk.
The car In which President Roosevelt
made the trip to Buffalo was the private car
or ice i-resiaeni auuns i " Acm.wtc
and Hudson company. As the train left for
Buffalo Mr. Roosevelt's secretary was
handed a big batch of telegrams. The en
gineer in charge of the train was limited
to Empire State express time.
Great crowds were" at the station to meet
the Delaware and'Hudson train uponitsar
jival here, but they were not afforded an
opportunity to see the President. The por
ter was sent out to the station restaurant
to get breakfast for the President and his
secretary. Mr. Iioeb. The police kept the
crowd from the steps of the' car.
While the New York Central special was
being made tip at Albany. Secretary Loeb
went to th platform of the President's car
and said:
"I. am very sorry, but the Vice President
will see no one at this time."
"Is he sleeping?" was asked.
"No, he is awake," Mr. Ijoeb replied.
"Has Mr. Roosevelt taken the oath of of
fice yetT'
"No, sir."
"Have any arrangements been made for
Mr. Roosevelt to take- the oath between
here and Buffalo or at Buffalo?"
Had Long, Hard Ride.
"No, sir." Mr. Loeb replied, and then he
"conUnued: "You may say that no arrange
ments have been made at all of any de
scription. 1 don't know what will be done
at Buffalo. No plans as yet have been
made. All I can say Is this: That upon
his arrival In Buffalo Mr. Roosevelt will
become the guest of Mr. Wilcox, with
whom he stopped when he was at Buffalo
In reply to a question as to whether
there were any incidents on the trip from
the' camp to North Creek, Mr, Loeb said:
"No, but it was a long, hard. ride. Horses
were changed three times."
Besides President Roosevelt, the train
carried Superintendent Harrington of the

Buffalo, Sept. ll.-The credit for the ar

for his rescue from the crowd Is claimed
by Captain John P. Wlsser of the Artillery
Corps for. his men. whose names he gives
in his renort of the shooting to the Ad
jutant General of the United States Army
at Washington.
Captain Wlsser says In his report that he

the. President's reception in the Temple of
Music, September 6.
Corporal Bertschey and ten' men reported
to Mr. Babcock at 3 p. m. The Corporal is

Corporal gave the" men in his detail instruc

every man approaching the President.
"When the assassin fired the two shots,"
says Captain Wlsser, "Private Brooks -was

ThooRht McKinley Woold Recover,
When Theodore Roosevelt left Buffalo he.
like every one else, was confident that Mr.
McKinley was getting well. and. after his
custom when wishing' to rest from a long
strain, he put himself in hunting clothes
and plunged into the wilderness in search
at the same time of game and of relaxa
tion. He went to the Tahawus Club, and
before the sun was up left with guides on
a hunting trip through the forest. He had
no Intimation then of Mr. McKinley's re
lapse, and was in great spirits, looking
forward to a day of exhilarating sport and
the physical exertion that brings rest.
Not many hours after Mr. Roosevelt's
departure from the clubhouse the news of
Mr. McKinley's seriousness arrived, and it
became necessary at once to find the Vice
The club steward knew that this was no
easy task, as this is the tangled wilder
ness over which Leather-Stocking and
Uncas roamed, and it has changed but lit
tle since their day. But it was. too, al
most the first time In history that search
had to be made for the heir to so great a
place, and the officials of the club were on
.ineir mettle. They said that the search
must continue until Mr. Roosevelt was
found and they pressed into service every
guide and member of the club who was at
Tho hunt for Mr. Roosevelt was begun
early In the day and continued for many
hours over the penks. among the ravines
and through the forest. The guides now
and then fired shots to signal to each other
or to attract the attention of Mr. Roose
velt, but there was no sign. Thus the hunt
went on nnd a nation waited, while Mr.
McKinley's successor, not dreaming that he
was needed, was lost In the woods.
Searching, the Woods,
Other messages were received at the Ta
hawus clubhouse, which stated the Increas
ing gravity of Mr. McKinley's condition and
new searchers were sent Into the. forest
after the missing Vice President. Some of
the, earlier ones reported, saying that he
could not b found. He was a man ac
customed to the wilderness, and he might
spend the night with his guides in a cabin
somewhere in the. mountains. But the club
members refused to give up. saying that
they would continue tho search through the
night. If necessary.
The striking nature of the situation ap
pealed to them. Here was a man who did
.not know the great step upward that he
was about to take, and he was almost the
only one of the 80,000.000 who did not know

few quick words of good-by. .they drove off.
In a 'solemn silence, broken only by the
rattling of the buckboard wheels on the
mountain road.

capturing the prisoner by standing with
fixed bayonets. The Captain' sent' a detail
to clear the esplanade' and keep up with
