"STEIN MIGHT" AT COUNTRY CLUB 9. if Theodore Roosevelt. John Schrank. . (BULLETIN.) . v. ,; Late reports received in Cincinnati by the Scripps-McCrae league by lcng distance telephone indicate that the Colonel's wound is more seri ous than first thought. It was feared the bullet had passed through his body and internal hemorrhages are feared. (BULLETIN.) The X-ray plate has not yet been completed which will determine more definitely to show the exact condition of the wound. It is reported that Colonel Hoosevelt's wound is one inch below the right nipple and three inches deep. (BULLETIN.) Davis, Roosevelt's manager is reported to have cancelled off all engagements pending Colonel Roosevelt's condition. (BULLETIN.) Mrs. Nicholas Longworth Roosevelt's daughter is expected to arrive from Cincinnati during the forenoon. (BULLETIN.) The icssibility of blcod-poisoning is what doctors fear in Pvoosevelt's case. Through the phenomenal development of his chest the bullet stuck in his massive chest muscles instead of penetrating his lung. (BULLETIN.) Official Bulletin. 3 p. rn. The patient cannot talk with anyone as it is not a mere flesh wound but a serious one in the chest. Quietude is absolutely essential. Next bulletin will be issued at 6 :30 p. m.. Signed Drs. Murphey, Bevan, Terrell and Doyle. Theodore Roosevelt was shot last night in Milwaukee by a man named John Schrank of 370 East Tenth street, New York City. The bullet passed through the Colonel's eyeglass case and the manuscript of the speech he was about to deliver and buried itself in his body below the right breast. With the bullet still in him the Colonel drove cn to the Audi torium and delivered his speech. Then he was taken to the Emerg ency Hospital. Before he would consent to go to the operating room the Colonel dictated a long telegram to his wife. Surgeons searched for the bul let, but could not find it. Still carrying the bullet, the Colonel insisted on getting a shave. He left Milwaukee for Chicago at 12:47 this morning on a special train on the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad, arriving here at 3 o'clock. Plot to slay the former president was, made many weeks ago. Assassin says he was ordered to slay in dream. Ex-President Roosevelt has been taken to Mercy Hospital in Chi cago where he arrived in a very weak condition. Dr. J. B. Murphey does not regard wound as serious. One of the most novel entertainments ' that has ben provided for the mem- ! bers of the Hammond Country club will be Riven at the club hou.-e next Saturday niKht, when 'stein nigrht" will be inaugurate i. Every rnen;ber of the club will do- ! nnte a stein to the club, and as tere are som-s 200 members, the grill room will be the recipient of some line dec orative ware. The steins are on exhibition at Summer's pharmacy, where members can secure them. There will be all kinds of indoor games and competitive events at the stag party, and music will b. on the program. j PATRONS DENGUi.CE SATURDAY TO BE DIRT IN DEPOT BIO DAY OF WEEK CHECK FORGER ! FINDS VICTIMS j i Two Hammond nii-rrhanis fell the' victims of a slick i.-h.-ik former yes-i terday afternoon, who ;-ft r securing $40 on two worthless checks, made his ' (retawiiy and has not been seen or heard of since. The victims were Abe ! Cohen of the Huh Clothing store and J. C. Collins of the White Seal buffet. The forcer's description was jrl ven to i the police, who are now making a ' reKlon-wide search for the swindler. The checks were for the amount of 20 each and were on the Citizens' fer- j man Xatlonal batik of Hammond. They i were made out to Harry J. Jluilln and i sinned by K. J. Wilson. The supposed : Mullln is apparently well educated and ' is able to write a line business hand. Neither check h.-;l the appearance of! teinsf botrus. which so easily fooled the ! two Hammond business men. j This morning it was learned that' Mullln has been loitering around Ham-' rnond for some time and only last week passed a botfus check on J. S. Vesseant, S State street. West Ham-: mond. His description Is nearly thf ' same as that Kiven to the police yes terday. Height, it feet S inches: weight. 140 pounds: slim build, ?0 years old, com plexion lhrht. wore a black crushed hat. blue coat, dark vest with litiht ptri;.'. double chain across vest, Kold teeth, both upper and lower Jaw. The patron i of the Monon depot. Hammond's newest ami most attractive passenger station, are criticising the railroad bitterly and vehemently on account of tie manner In which hte new flepot is main'.ainei. The floor is filthy with dirt and does not look as though it has been cleaned out in weeks, or since the opening. The white enamel woodwork is; so;lej and looks as though it had been used for years. The toilets are filthy, dirty and look as tliousrh they had not been cleaned out since the lepot was opened to the public. The depot platform is cluttered up with freig'-Jt and there are always two or three express trucks out in the middle of the walk. The folly of locating the depot at a point where t! ere Is such limited plat form space Is obvious. It is under stood that the railway management will not allow anything for maintenance of the depot, an 1 litis accounts for its present condtt on. There has b-en some talk of taking up the matter of t!i cleaning and sani tation of the depot with the railway management in tli hope that it would do something to improve conditions. A Hammond business man said yes terday. "No ether corporation but a railway company would invest $25,000 in a property of this kind and then pro vide bsolutel,' nothing for maintenance. Wile there were fewer farmers and shoppers in Hammond's new public market this morning than there were l:"t Saturday, those who did eomo did good business and found fine bargains, respee i i vee! y. The ten day.-- that the market has been open here demonstrated that Sat urday is going to be the big day of the week. Among those who have watched the progress of the city market, it has been a matter of comment that It is a great attraction to the housewife who is choice jn the selections she makes for her table. Ladies driving up to the market in automobiles are already a familiar sight. I The farmers who are coming in regu larly tigure that they will have garden truck to sell through the month of October, an.! possibly longer. As yet the farmer"' wives have pot begun to send in any of their canted or bakery goods, but it wii! lie only a matttr of i time when their supplies will be a reg- niar feature of t ne. market, j Thus far the ladies of the Pine ' Street Presbyterian, church have had . a corner on the bakery troods'. They j ave erected a permanent stand against i the rear of the city bail and base al ; ready established a regular patronage. 'Tiie pics, particularly the pumpkin ', pies, they hud this morning were sim i pi.v irresi stable. j Th maiket will be opn again on ENTIRE TEXT OF ROOSEVELT SPEECH IN GARY YESTERDAY Mr. Roosevelt said: "My friends and fellow citizens, fellow Americans of Indiana. I greet you all, men, women and little, bull mooscs. "And now, friends, unfortunately, my voice has for the m mient gone back on me. I am all right, hut 1 have got to lie careful in speaking for a day or two. and I have asked Mr. M'-rriam to speak for me. "I have something to say to you, and that is th..t I wish you to rend the platform of the progressive party arid compare it with the platform of the two obi parties, and you wili find that tin-re are oniy two ways to vote this fall with the proc ressives or against th.-rn. and if you vote against them, it is not of consequence whether you - vote i!i mocratic or re publican. , "And so I ask you to compare our platform with the other plat form, and I ask you to compare what Mr. Wilson said before lie was a candidate, about his fellow citizens or f orei u n - ho r n Americans, with what he has said since he was a candidate. I ask you to compare what he said about union labor before he was a candidate with what he has said since he became a candidate? and I ask you to compare what I did with the trusts while J was president with what he did not do while he was governor of New Jersey."

"Great God, man. please d"i:"l." Theodore Tloosevelt was shot and painfully wounded at Milwaukee last night by a man who has hounded him for weeks, waiting for an oportunity to assassinate him. The bullet imbedded itself in the Colonel's side, just beneath his right breast. Only the fact that It nrst pass ed through the manuscript of the speech which the Colonel was about to deliver saved him from probable fatal injury. Assassin Is New Yorker. The assassin is John Schrank, 370 East Flint street. New York. Colonel Roosevelt was shot while in front of Hotel Gilpatrick shortly after S o'clock. He had just left the hotel. A large crowd was awaiting his pres ence. Suddenly a voice shouted, "There he is," as Roosevelt appeared in the dour.
