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.
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.
Davis, Roosevelt's manager is reported to have cancelled off all engagements pending Colonel Roosevelt's condition.
Mrs. Nicholas Longworth Roosevelt's daughter is expected to arrive from Cincinnati during the forenoon.
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.
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
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
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-:

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
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

good business and found fine bargains,

The ten day.-- that the market has

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,

' Street Presbyterian, church have had

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."

to assassinate him.
The bullet imbedded itself in the
