Missile Split in Two
When It Struck Gay
nors Jawbone
Now York Aug 10There Is no at
tempt on the part of the physicians
attending Mayor Gaynor to minimize
the seriousness of their patients
wound The six Xray negatives tak
en yesterday showed that the bullet
fired by Gallagher had been split In
two by Impact with the jawbone and
that therefore there will be in the
Immediate future two distinct danger
points that will have to bo watched
for blood poisoning The larger frng
mem lies beneath the liner of the
mouth on the loft side The other
lies near the entrance poinL of tho
bullet behind the right ear
The mayors sufferings thus far
have been slight lie has not been
unconscious at any time and Is allow
ed to tall all he cares to He is not
llkoly to overdo his privileges In this
respect however for according to the
attendants lie realizes that he may
have to pat up a good fight for recov
ery and Is content to husband his
strength
In a talk with Dr William Arlltx
early today after a sound sleep of
about four hours the mayor spoke of
the many pleasant outings ho had had
hi the Maine and Quebec woods and
said that his 1ncqcted decision to
go to Europe rather than to his old
hunting grounds In tho north this year
had led to this trouble
I had anticipated much pleasure
from this vacation said the mayor
This wnolo thing is all wrong I I
have only tried to do my duty This
strife and responsibility were forced
upon me and thin Is what has come of
it I
Mr Adamson the mayors secre
tary came to the bedside and the
mayor asked If there were any news
paper men about When told hunt
there wore some forty man In attend
ance below and a great throng of Ho
bokon residents gathered outside he
expressed surprise that the matter had
attracted so much attention
I think you had better stick to the
office he told his secretary F There
will be a lot of work to do over there
Good Health in His Favor I
The fine condition of the mayor iSI
expected to bo of material aid to na
I Uirc and thc surgeons thclr light
for recovery The most optimistic
words which those attending him ot
ter arc that their hopes that the
vigorous constitution which the may
or has retained by reason of his out
door life and his fondness for walk
ing will enable him to make aspeedy
convalescence I
There must be a little time of wait
ing for developments said Professor
Simon Baruch of tho Gallego of Phy
sicians and Surgeons Unless com
pilations set in the mayors chances
of recovery are of course good A
rifle bullet in the same place might
have done groat damage Thi bullet
seems to have been a small one and
it did not touch any important veins
or arteries
The mayors vigorous constitution
his habit of walking to the city hall
from his home In Brooklyn his out
door life are great advantages The
bullet is lodged in muscular structures
from which It ought lo be possible to
extract it with little danger
Will Guard the Mayor I
Yesterdays attempt on tbo life of
Mayor Gaynor will probably result In I
the taking of greater precautions here I
after to guard the person of the citys
executive FrIend of Mayor Gaynor
who realized that he was making bit
ten enemies because of his method of
I running the affairs of the city have
frequently warned him of the dangers
of going about unaccompanied Par
ticularly they urged him to drop his
habits of walking to and from his
home across the Brooklyn bridge It
t + as often dark when he started his
walk over the bridge but be always
declared that lie had no fears of per
serial Injury from anyone with a
I grudge If any danger came he told
his friends it would be from an Irre
sponsible crank
The board of aldermen at its next
meeting will be asked either by a pe
tition of citizens or through a resolu
tion introduced by a member to au
thorize a permanent bodyguard for
the mayor A still more radical move
which will be recommended will be
the passage of an ordinance to com
pel all poisons carrying or owning
ilrcarniB to obtain a license and all
dealers manufacturers and buyers to
the same United States Judge Geo
Cliolt yesterday supported this plan
Ile declares that nlnetesntiventieths
of the crimes of violence are the re
I sult of the easy mr Mesa which the
criminal classes have to the use of
revolvers
The repealing pistol he says Is
the greatest nuisance in modern life
I and it would be entirely justifiable
I for tho government to prohibit the
manufacture or sale of ant pistols In
I this country except In national armo
ries for the use of the military and
policeHad i

awakened much refreshed after a Ono
I sloop Mrs Gaynor he said had
remained at the hospital all night and
I the room adjoining her husbands hud

Question as to the
Efficiency of
Rilicmen
Now York tug 10 General Gourde
I W YVIngatc Brooklyn who was for
Iwontyflvo years president of the Na
tional Tllflo aflFOciatlou of the United
States has been making a detailed
study of the chances which an aero
pianist would have In time of war
against a corps of skilled sharpshoot
ors He sums up his conclusions In
the following statement
In shooting at an aeroplano which
Is moving with a rapidity probably ex
ceeding that of a swallow on the wing
aiiil darting up and down and sudden
13 changing course much the same
as a swallow files to enable it to be
struck by a bullet the rifleman must
accurately determine Its distance dir
roctlon and speed
This is so different from ordinary
rifle shooting that only those riflemen
who arc familiar wltn the use of shot
guns know how a rifle should be
aimed In order to hit an object mov
ing in the air and the sighting of a
military rifle is so absolutely different
from that of a shotgun that very few
of those who actually know what they
ought to do are able to do it with any
certainty While I myself have often
fired with a ilfle at large birds flying
1 can recall but one hit
The army is introducing shooting
at moving objects whichwhen car
ried out will work a reformation In
this respect But een then and as
suming that the sights on the military I
rifles are simplified so as to permit It
to be done properly It must be a good
while until any considerable number
will become proficient The ordinary
soldier however skillful he may be In
shooting atil fixed mark with the
sights which he Is accustomed to uce
and in doing which he takes his time
Is helpless when It comes to the sort
of firing which Is Indisponsible lo hit
an aeroplane and those who are ac
customed to the former kind of shoot
ing will find the latter very difficult

The greatest obstacle in the war
of the success of the plan is the pies
