He is cheerful, stronger and 1B now restiDg quietly. "Ttie complete radiographic ex amination by Dr. C. D. Caldwell shows definitely that the bullet is lodged in the -vault of the pbar nyx, easily accessible, bat it is not considered wise to attempt to remove it at present. "Tlie blood examination is also satisfactory-" By Associated Press. NeTir York. Aug. LI.—Mayor William J. Gaynor may be mak ing satisfactory progress, as his attending physicians persistent ly maintain today and tonight, but there is an undercurrent of anx iety evidenced tonight that runs contrary to the official bulletins. His Burgeons say he had a satis factory day, that he is cheerful and stronger and was resting quietly, more than holding his own against the shot wound in flicted Tuesday by James J. Gal lagher. As opposed to this attitude of optimism, those who Tead the 10:30 bulletin thoughtfully noted references to "complete radio graphic" examinations, indicat ing that it was necessary to take a second set of negatives in or der to accurately find the position of the bullet. That an additional set of negatives was taken has been reported heretofore, but the rumor lacked confirmation. Nothing is said in the bulletin of the "split bullet" mentioned as indicated in the first pictures. Instead, the lead is now said to be lodged in the roof of theof mouth. Whether the other shad ow as indicated in the first pic tures is a splinter of bone, none of the physicians would say. A sample of the-patient's blood was examined carefully this even ing and pronounced satisfactory, the relation of the white and red blood corpuscles havSng been found so near normal as to cause no alarm.

Gallagher. On the other hand, rumors were afloat that his condition was worse and that his surgeons were in the midst of a disagreement. No official bulletin amplifying these rumors of the day had been issued up to ten o'clock tonight, but Robert Adamson, bis secretary, and E. J. Lederle, health commissioner of New York, gave out a statement discrediting the reports of friction among the medical ad visors. The statement does not deny the report specifically, but by implifica tion as follows: "The surgeons in attendance on the mayor are Dr. William J. Arlitz, Dr. Geo. B. Brewer, Dr. Geo. D. Stewart, Dr. Chas. N. Dowd. In their absence on Wednesday aicernoon, Dr. Charles E. Peck attended the mayor. The mayor's family physician, Dr. John W. Parrish, also attended him. No other surgeons or physicians have at any time been connected with the case. This statement is necessary because of unfounded reports and statements by those pretending to be connected with the mayor's physi clans." The patient's irritability this after noon and the barring from the sick room of all save Mrs. Gaynor and the attending physicians, first gave rise to these disquieting rumors. It was admitted the mayor had lost, temporarily, his cheerful spirit and had requested that his wife re main near his bedside constantly. Because of soreness of the wounded throat, an antiseptic spray was used frequently, and it was during this process that the mayor showed signs of fretting. Reports that dissension had arisen among the physicians over the ad visability of an operation met with prompt denial, but nevertheless per sistent rumors came from the hospi tal that there was serious difference opinion as to the course to be pur sued. One physician, is said, holds that the bullet should be removed imme diately, while others maintain they should let well enough alone, as there is no sign of infection. John P. Mitchell, acting mayor, vis ited the hospital this afternoon, but was not allowed to go to the sick room. Departing, he said nothing of the reported friction among the phy sicians.

Rumor Started from Ordinary Message of Inquiry and Caused Great Con sternation—Many Tugs and Steam ers Looking ror the Reported "Boat on Fire." By Associated Press. Chicago, Aug. 11.—A garbled wire less message, indicating that a ship was on fire in the lake some distance from Chicago created much excite ment in that city today, especially among the visiting Knights Templar. A harmless inquiry sent by wireless from the excursion steamer Christo pher Columbus with 2,000 passenger, mostly wives and daughters of visit ing Sir Knights, on board, started the trouble. The captain of the Columbus had noticed smoke and asked the steamer Grand Haven if she had no ticed anything. As the rumor grew, it presently embraced the Columbus itself, and wires were kept hot with the frantic inquiries of the visitors, whose women folks had gone on the excursion. It was some hours before all boats could be accounted for and the mis take rectified. The fact that various wireless sta tions tried to work simultaneously did much to add to the confusion. Before the rumor had exploded half a dosen tugs and ships had left the harbor here or turned from their courses to look for the "ship on fire."

WIFE DESERTER SENATOR ALDRICH ANSWERS THE GIVEN A COATI CHARGES MADE BV BRISIDW AND EXPLAINS SOME TARIFF BOOSTS Washington, Aug. 11.—Senator Nel son W. Aldrich of Rhode Island, en umerating the counts under which he was indicted by benator Jos. W. Bris tow of Kansas in recent campaign speeches dealing with the tariff on rubber, In a letter made public to night, denies the charges in the en tirety. Incidentally he pays his re spects in caustic language to Senator Bristow, and what he terms a "little group of men" which entertains opin ions similar to those of the Kan sasian. The letter is addressed to Hon. William B. McKinley of Illinois, chair man of the republican congressional committee, and was sent to the head quarters of the committee in this city. The explanation of the rubber duties and the denial of the charges made against him by Senator Bristow are based on the fac, that Senator Al drich was called upon by a republican candidate for congress to furnish the facts connected with the changes made in the recent tariff act. Referring to the charges made by Senator Bristow as "absurd miss statements," Senator Aldrich said the persistent reiteration of them impell ed him to make a full statement. At the outset of his long letter, the sen ator divided the speeches by Mr. Bris tow into five parts, each of which con tained a specific charge. He then dealt with them in oreler. In the first place the senator declared the increase from 30 to 35 per cent on a small number of manufactured rubber articles was for the purpose of making the tariff uniform on kin dred articles and facilitating the la bors of the e-ustoms officers.

By Associated Press. WANT ADS BRING RESULTS PRICE FIVE CENTS connection he made public a letter to him from Gen. T. S. Sharrus, a mem ber of the New York board of gen eral appraisers, asserting that the change was advisable and had been agreed to unanimously by the senate and house committees and by the con ferees on the tariff bill at the earn est solicitation of the tariff experts of the treasury department. Laying par ticular stress upon this charge made by Mr. Bristow, the chairman of the senate financial committee said that "Neither he, nor any member of his family, has ever had any pecuniary interest as to whether the rates on manufacturers of rubber were 30, 35 or 300 per cent, or whether crude rubber was on the free or dutiable list." Dealing then with the charges that the International Rubber Co., of which he is a director, is a trust, that it advanced the price of crude rubber, and controlled the world's supply, and that the company had paid enormous dividends, Mr. Aldrich treated each separately and at great length. With out raising any issue concerning the progressives' campaign generally, Mr. Aldrich referred to Mr. Bristow and his immediate associates as follows: "In the tariff discussions of other days, the advocates of the protective policy have usually been called to meet in debate with democrats on the subject, democrats of character, whose theories of government differ ed completely from those held by re publican protectionist men, who had some regard for the accuracy of the statements and some knowledge of the subjects they discussed. "Now, attacks upon a republican president and republican measures are led by men whose political exist ence depends upon the capacity—and to this there seems to be no limit— for misrepresentation and the ignor ance of their adherents. Strangely enough, this little group of men—very small in number—has arrogated to it self the leadership of the progres sives, and its members orate about the treatment of the tariff as a moral question."
