LEAVES CHICAGO '
FOR OYSTER BAY
BOARDS PENNSYLVANIA TRAIN
AT UNION STATION THIS
MORNING FOR HOME.
BULLET DEFINITELY LOCATED
Ex-President In Weak, Nervous Con
dition and Physicians Demand Ab
solute Quiet for Patient, Though
There Is No Cause to Worry.
Mercy Hospital, Chicago, Oct. 21.
Colonel Roosevelt, despite his weak
and nervous condition, left the hos
pital at 7:30 o'clock this morning
and an hour afterward was on his way
to Oyster Bay, N. Y., aboard a 24-hour
train over the Pennsylvania railroad.
A consultation of his staff physi
cians last night definitely decided this
move, although they were not hesi
tant in saying he should nave re
mained at the hospital until Thurs
day at least.
It became known last night for the
first time since the shooting the ex
act location of the bullet fired by
John Schrank in Milwaukee last Mon
day.
Bullet Definitely Located.
The bullet, it was found by a new
X-ray plate, is lodged outside, instead
of inside, the fractured rib, and can
be removed at any time Colonel
Roosevelt desires.
This fact greatly encouraged the
doctors and, In interviews after the
consultation, they emphasized the
point that the colonel is in as" good
condition as might be expected.
"However," Dr. Alexander Lambert,
Roosevelt's family physician stated,
"Mr. Roosevelt, like any patient would
be who has undergone such an experi
ence, is nervously exhausted.
"He must have absolute quiet.0
"There is no cause for serious mis
givings if the colonel keeps quiet,
added Dr. Arthur Dean Bevan.
Goes to Depot in Electric Car.
Doctor Murphy at the last minute
decided that the risk of Colonel Roose
velt traveling to the railway sitting in
a limousine, as had been planned,
was too great to be incurred, and he
ordered that Colonel Roosevelt be
transported in the hospital's electric
ambulance. This lowered the liabil
ity of injury to his wound through
crossing car tracks, the Chicago river
bridge and rough places In the paving
The route of the ambulance and
party from the hospital to the Union
station was:
From the Prairie avenue gate of the
hospital, north to Sixteenth street,
west to Michigan avenue, north to
Jackson boulevard, west to Canal
street and north to the depot.
The party traveled slowly, one hour
being taken for the three-mile ride.
The patients in the hospital were
very much alive to the colonel s de
parture this morning and the Prairie
avenue windows- of the hospital were
alive with fluttering handkerchiefs.
The colonel's route to the Union
station was kept secret. It was done
to avoid the crowds which would
naturally gather along the route to see
the colonel's departure. The noise
would tend to excite the colonel and
it Is upon absolute quiet that his re
covery depends, the doctors say.
Pqllce Guard Roosevelt.
Every precaution was taken at the
station to keep the crowds from jost
ling the colonel. Fifty policemen
formed a phalanx around the former
president. The Roosevelt family and
party had two cars placed at their
disposal. Dr. Scurry L. Terrell and
Dr. Alexander Lambert accompanied
the colonel to Oyster Bay.
No one will bo allowed to see the
colonel on route. Even if Governor
Johnson, Senator Beverldge or Presi
dent Taft himself, which Is a remote
possibility, should board the train,
they would be barred at the colonel's
door.
"So I am going at last, am I?" said
the colonel after reaching his private
car. "Well, I am greatly relieved.
The week has passed very slowly for
T ft "
111V..
"But you will have to be more quiet
at Oyster Bay than you have been
here," one of the doctors said.
The colonel looked at them with a
twinkle in his eye.
"We'll see," ho said.
The colonel will, after an enforced
rest at Oyster Bay, begin preparations
for his last speech of the campaign to
bo delivered at Madison Square gar
den, Now York, on the evening of Oc
tober 30.
Whethor his condition will allow
him to speak for 30 minutes or for
only flvo minutes, he says that it will
bo a final message to the people of
the country to deliver themselves
from tho present political system.
Wound Bleeds Slightly.
Tho colonel's wound has boon bleed
Ing slightly and exuding a serum,
which shows that the wound Is just
beginning to heal Inside. Tho least
exertion on Mr. Roosevelt's part
would cause a break in tho healing
and might result in complications.
For this reason he was almost car
ried to the electric car which carried
him to the railway station and he was
bodily lifted up the high steps of the
-train.

Sofia, Oct. 21. Having overcome
fortified' Turkish outposts in fighting
that cost hundreds of lives, the allied
Bulgarian and Servian armies began
an advance on Adrianople, the key to
the Bosphorus, and the most difficult
obstacle between an attacking force
and Constantinople.
Mustapha Pacha, Tzarevo, Görna,
Dzumala, Barakova and Palanka have
fallen before the Bulgars. Among the
killed before Mustapha Pacha were
four Turkish officers of high rank.

fled. Two companies of Turkish cav

of ammunition was seized. '
London, England, Oct. 19. The
whole Turkish garrison of Berana,
consisting of 4,000 regulars and 3,000

King Calls People to Arms. x
Sofia, Bulgaria, Oct. 19. A striking
proclamation to the Bulgarian nation
has been issued by King Ferdinand.
In it he recounts the sufferings of
the Macedonian Christians and the
efforts of the European powers to
obtain better treatment for them and
says he has called his people to arms
only after the patience of the Bal
kan nations has been exhausted.
The provlamation opens with a ref
erence to King Ferdinand's peaceful
reign of twenty-five years and says he
had hoped that it would have so con
tinued.
"But Providence judged otherwise,"
he adds. "The moment has come
when the Bulgarian race is called
upon to renounce the benefits of
peace and to have recourse to arms
for the solution of the great problems.
Beyond the PJlo and Rhodope moun
tains our brothers in blood and re
ligion have not been able -until this

Predicts War Will Be Bitter.
London, England, Oct. 19. The

FIFTY HURT IN TRAIN WRECK
Illinois Central Passenger Plunges
Over 10-Foot Embankment Slow
Speed Saves Many Lives.
Hopkinsville, Ky., Oct. 21. A bro
ken rail caused aan excursion train
on the Illinois Central to leave the
track at Green's crossing, six miles
from here, and at least fifty people
were considerably injured, while all of
the one hundred and eighty passen
gers aboard were badly shaken up.
The accident occurred on top of
an embankment about ten feet high,
and the four passenger coaches
plunged off of this, three of them
turning over on the side as they fell.
Only the slow speed at which the
train was running, about fifteen miles
an hour, as it approached Green's
crossing, saved more .disastrous re
sults. As it was none of the cars
were badly torn up and the injuries
received were chiefly due to the pas
sengers being hurled about inside.

STEAMER BERKSHIRE, WITH
MANY PASSENGERS, ABLAZE
Vessel Rolling in Northwest Gale Off
Virginia Coast Latest Report
Says Flames Under Control.
Norfolk Va., Oct. 21. With a fire
smoldering in her hold, the Mer
chants and Miners' steamer Berkshire,
from Philadelphia for Savannah, is
rolling in a raging northeast gale in
Lookout Cove, near Cape Lookout, her
24 passengers aiding, the crew and
the lifesavers in an attempt to sub
due the flames.
The boat has been on fire for nearly
twenty-four hours, but is believed to
be under control. Unless it should
become more serious the passengers
will probably remain on board all
night or until the sea subsides suffi
ciently to permit them to be trans
ferred to one of the several vessels
that have reached the scene. Again
the wireless demonstrated its effi
ciency, the steamship Apache cf the
Clyde line being at the side of the
burning Berkshire in an hour after it
first picked up the alarming signal.
The flames on the Berkshire have
been confined to the forward freight
hold. With the assistance of life
savers, who reached the boat under
the greatest difficulties, some of the
freight was removed from this com
partment and the flames are being
fought with the ship's equipment.
There are twenty-one passengers
on the Berkshire, most of them tour
ists . bound fr-orn Philadelphia to Sa-
vannah. From ther time the fire was
discovered in the hold of the ship un
til the present no one on the Berk
shire dared go to sleep. The crew of
the Berkshire tried for many hours
to subdue the flames, but their ef
forts met with little success.
The latest message from the Berk
shire stated that the fire was still
confined to the forward hold which
is partly flooded; that the flames were
practically under control but that the
ship was badly damaged.
