The flesh ulong the course of the bullet showed no discoloration to-day and there appeared to the physicians no cause for concern from any featuii' of the assault now iKiBt. Colonel Roosevelt, anxious that his friends and particularly members of his family who were en route to Chicago should not be unduly apprehensive at his condition, protested against the edict bar ring callers from his room, but acceded when nil the consulting physicians on- dorsed the plan He was anxious to greet members of all the Justices of the United States his family. Ills concern all day was not Supreme Court, governors of States, for himself but for those he believed were! heads of associations nnd civic bodies, likely to be too fearful of his condition.

So many newsnaper men gathered In the office of the hospital that the house authorities finally asked them to leave and the reporters gathered outside with the rest of tho All of Colonel Roosevelt's speaking dates were cancelled to-day, savo one to-morrow night at liulsvllle, Ky. To this city former Senator Albert Bev erldge of Indiana was sent after n conference with tho candidate with a message the colonel insisted be rend to his friends there. No announcement regarding future planx of Colonel Roosevelt were made to-day, all of such action depending upon the length of time demanded of him by the physicians. Until the ultimatum of the doctors ', against callers, the corridor outside ' Colonel Roosevelt's room wns filled with those coming or going, and with those who sought to extcnil any aid that might be useful. INCIDENTS OF THE SHOOTING. ' ill lii the corridor all afternoon watch was kept by Patrolman J. A. Tomney and here the smull band of attendants gathered and from the discussion new light was thrown nn the actual story of the ussuult. It was disclosed that Albert K. Martin, tho secretary who seized the assailant, saw the pistol before the shot was llrcd and that the weapon was discharged Just as he flung hlmsolf upon Schrnnk. Power ful of build, he was forcing Schrank's neck back till the assailant was gasping for breath. Henry F. Cochcms, who had arisen from his seat In the automobile, shouted several times: "Don't kill him, John; don't kill him, John." Martin wresting the pistol from Schrank and holding the assailant in a grip fast rendering him unconscious, shouted back resentfully: "My name Is not John." The colonel laughed at the Incident as he recalled It to-day. Colonel Roosevelt talked little to-day of the assault. Most of that discussion wns in Jets with those who called on him. He linked seriously how his wound looked nnd leaned his hind forward from his halt sitting posture and surveyed It himself, THINKS WOUND LOOKS GOOD. 'That doesn't look bad, doctor," he said, "what do you think?" "That, as It Is. doesn't bother us, re sponded Dr. Murphy, nodding to his fcl lows, Dr. Arthur Dean Brown and Dr. Terrell who accompanied him. "It Is what you do to It." The patient raised his eyebrows Inter rogatively, and was Informed that the doctors, by way of precaution, felt ho had better ski no one so that the rest would remove further any possibility ot a .-.etback. He was disappointed for a lew minutes, but the examination be Ing over and n pint of buttermilk hav ing been ordered, he reached again for his books and smiled "All right." An hour's Mecp kept up hlb good splrlta and he snld It had been the most rc freshing rest he hail enjoyed for a week Ihlsll give me a good rest up uny' wuy," he said, "ami If I must stay here I suppo.-e I might as well mnku the most of it." SAYS HE FEELS FINE. Colonel Roosevelt bade the laM of his callers good night at eight o'clock and preparej for a comfortablo night which was to be spent In part in rea ing. He said he folt tine and told Di John 1'. Golden, who Is 'keeping watch over him to-night, that unless fvi final injection of the tetanus nntl toxin Interfered ho would havo the first real comfortable evening to him self" he had enjoyed In many days. He laid aside his hook a few mlnuK'w after nine and switched off his reailnff light. He was soon fast BBleep. Dr. Murphy went Into tie colonol's room at 9:30 and found him sound asleep. The patient's pulse wns SO when taken before ho dropped asleep. This rn two pomta higher than it was last night after the shooting and 14 abova nor mal. His temperature was threw fiftha of a degree above normal. After having had several short naps, Colonel Roosevelt awakened at 10:30 p, m. u nil willed for hot water to jhave himself. He sat up In bod with a hand mirror ngalnM his knees and shaved find then was given a sponge bath and alcohol rub down by his nurse.

Colonel Ilooscvelt told his nurse to night, as he picked up his book for a second spell of reading, about eleven o'clock that ho was going home to Oyster Uny on Sunday. He ordered his break fast for seven o'clock and Bald: "Mind. 1 want a good one. I'll bo hungry." He gave directions about his clothes find his room to havo everything In readi ness to see Mrs. Roosevelt In the morn ing. Nurse Fitzgerald said that tho colonel's pulse after his sponge bath mi not far above normal considering his physical characteristics and n moro Important fact concerning It was Its strong and steady rythm, she said. Colonel Hoosevclt after his bath and shave had no pain of any kind, but said he was slightly nervous from Inaction. At midnight Colonel Roosevelt was soundly sleeping. Dr. John F. Golden, assistant surgeon of the hospital nnd Dr. J, B. Murphy's chief associate In charge of the case, took a look at the patient and reported that there was no prospect of any change In the colonel's condition during the ntght. "He will sleep till morning He Is all right," said Dr. Golden. Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth ar rived In Chlcogo from Cincinnati at 6:4i p. m. nnd hurried to the bedside, of her father, Col. Roosevelt, at Mercy hospital. She traveled alone and wnn met at the railway station by Mrs. McdIU McCormlok and Oeorge F. Porter, as sistant treasurer of the Progrcsslvo party, who accompanied her to tho hos pital. MESSAGES FROM EVKRYBODV. The telegrams received at the pro gressive headquarters here to-day ran Into many hundreds. Sympathy, In dignation, encouragement, admonitions to tho colonel not to give up his tight and good wishes from political adver saries formed tho mlscellnny of mes sages stacked deep on a long table In the Inside office. A cablegram from Ivermlt Roose velt, his father's hunting eompnnlon, came from Brar.ll. James J. Corbet, Col. Henry Wntterson. AV. J. Bryan, Many of the telegrams were held at the headquarters but the personal mes sages were sent at once to the colonel's ..me In Mercy hospital where his phj slclans permitted him to read them when he was not sleeping. The one which the colonel held longest In his hand was from his son, Theodore "Eleanor nnd 1 send love with deepest thankfulness for your escape. I will be with mother. Ted." MRS. ROOSKVK1-T ON TIIH WAY. New York, Oct. 15. Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., Miss Kthel Roosevelt and Dr. Alexan der Lambert) the Roosevelt family Phj'sldan, left New York for Chicago four o'clock this afternoon. On the same train were Oeorge C. Priestley, chairman of the llnanci committee of the Progressive party, and Richard R. Quay of Pennsylvania, Dr. Lambert explained that he was I going at the request of Mrs. Itoose velt a,ld ot because he thought the colonel a condition was serious. SCHRANK IS NOT INSANI3. Neither Is He n Soelnllst i Trial till after KU-etloii. Milwaukee, Oct. 15. State's Attorney Winifred C. Znbel of Milwaukee county o-nlght dcllnltely announced that John Schrank. Colonel Roosevelt's assailant, would not be brought to trial until after the national election November 5. Ho said the trial would be opened some time be tween November 11 and ir. Mr. Zabel, who Is said to be the only socialist State's attorney In the country, gave three specific reasons for his de cision to put off the trial for one month He said, first, that It was only reason able to await the results of Colonel Roosevelt's Injury; second, he had no desire to crowd the defendant, and third,, gave It as his opinion that It would be unwise to call the ciu-e during the final struggle In the presidential campaign. Diseushlng the case as viewed by him the Milwaukee county pioseoutor said that us far as surface indications went, Schiauk was sane. "If Schrank is Insane," snld Mr. Zabel, It seems that there Is method In his madness when Ik selects for the scene of his crime a State where there Is no capital punishment. "Also I am Informed In mei-sages from New York there has been no Insanity In Schrank's family as far as can be traced. In addition the man presents none of the surface Indications of In sanity " The State's attorney said he believed Schrank had no accomplices or advisers In the crime nnd that the shooting of Colonel Roosevelt undoubtedly wns tho outgrowth of Individual plans. CALL CASE WHEN READY. When the case Is called It will be heard by Judge August C. Backus of the municipal court, unless Schrank asks a Chang'! of venue. The public pro.-'ecu- tin Mild that after election be would consult with Judge Backus and that they would call the case to trial formally, at their discretion. The plea of guilty filed by Schronk at his preliminary hearing before Juige N. B. Neelen In the district court this morning Is lookej upon as nieroly perfunctory by the public prosecutor's office. "I shall permit Schrank to withdraw thnt plea of gulltv when he goes tj trial, If he so desires," said Mr. Znbcl. Schrank spent a iiilt afternoon -md evening In his cell at the county Jail where he had been taken after his arraignment this morning. Much In -toroBt centered in the chemical tests on the remaining bullets from Schrank's revolver, which were start ed (thU afternoon by Professor R. E Homer of Marquette University to de termine If the bullet with which Col onel Roosevelt wur shot hnd been poi soned. Professor Somer snld thnt the result would not be known exactly for some time, Schrank, when questlonei on this point, lenied emphatically thnt he hnd used poisoned bullets. Milwaukee was remarkably quiet to light considering tho tension of last night after the shooting In front of tho ailputrlck Hotel. Although expression of deep regret for the occurrence mid of solicitous Inquiry as to Colonel Roose velt's condition was heard everywhere there was little talk of possible violence against the former president's would-be assassin, In response to repeated questions from Htate'i Attorney Zabel and Sheriff Arnold, Schrank declared that at no time. had he been a eoclaltit or a follower of grounds for re ports mni ncnrnnK was or hud bee'i a socialist or a reader of socialist lllerntnre. "The man Is uninformed on socialism as I havo ascertained In my examina tions of him," said Mr. Znbel, "I am afraid that because this shooting happened to bo executed In Milwaukee, Instead of Chicago, or any other ono of a dor.cn cities, that many people will unthinkingly Jump to tho conclusion that It was the outgrowth or Indirect result of a socialist pro paganda. "Nothing could be further from tho truth. This man knew no one In Mil waukee and as far as we can ascer tain, Is unfamiliar with any of the ex ecutive or leading socialists In New York. This unfortunate crime cannot Justly be laid at the door of tho socialists or any ono political party." Just before ho lay down to sleep In his narrow cell cot at nine o'clock to night Sehriink expressed the first words of regret that he has uttered since tho shooting. "I'm sorry I shot," said Schrank as a deputy sheriff was locking him up for tho night. The men who arc watching Schrang were surprised by two things: That the prisoner nt no time nsked to seo a newspaper nnd that he made no Inquiry whatever, regarding Colonel Roosevelt's condition, NEWS TOLD IN BRIEF.

It was well said In olden times that tho Roman baths were like provinces, and although the baths of Caracalla wore not as Immense as those of Diocletian their luxury nnd magnificence were unequalled, us Is proved by the splendor and perfec tlon of the vast halls which are still to be seen above ground and by the long list of world-famed statues and mosaics taken from this site, such as those now In the Fames collection of Naples, and many others which have survived the fury of the Iconoclast and the fatal lime kiln, while the present Investigations have brought back to our knowledge a subterranean city consisting of over 4.000 yards of vast galleries which were used by the slaves nnd attendants, and for marvelous hydraulic, heating and venti lation systems In connection with tho great bathing establishment above, Tho ground beneath is honeycombed with splendid drains for carrying off the water which the low level of tho neigh borhood has gathered there In immense quantities, and these lino works of an clent Rome could easily bo put Into prac tical order onco again but that tho differ ence In the level ot the Tiber, which is now almost "1 feet higher than It was in Imperial times, makes it impossible to have even the .small slopo necessary to carry the pipes Into the river. During the last two months' work among tho agglomeration of stone and marble fragments which were choking up the canals for carrying off the water two splendid archaic heads havo been found both In excellent condltton.'ono represent Ing Apollo and tho other Bacchus Alca. mene.s. a tlno torso of an athlete of al most life-size, a charming little satyr and tho half of a head In Greek marble which l.s supposed to represent a member of the ntonlne family. Tho most important discovery, however, from an artistic point of view, Is that which was made In little room beneath tho surfaco with a rough mosaic floor, on which were found heaped together tha fragments, moro than life-size, of a beautiful statue ot Venus Anadyomene with arms uprated. Tho head only and some small unimport ant fragments are wanting, but Profes sor Vallc believes that It repiesonts un doubtedly a Greek masterpiece, and ono ot tho most Important artistic finds of later years. Tho room In which this treasure was unearthed proved to be part of the largest and most complete Mlthraum ever discovered. In a gallery leadtns to the main hall Is a fountain and niches for sacrltlclal lustrations, and, In addition to several rooms for various uses, such as keeping tho nnlmals required for sacrifice, Is ii splendid Mlthralc sanctuary, about 25 yards long nnd 10 1-2 yards wide, di vided by three pilasters, which distinctly Indicate tho divisions for tho different grades of the mysterious Oriental rite which this and other dlscovcile.s lately made havo proved to have taken such a hold on tho Romans of the empire. Fragments of ritual sculpture, an nltnr In tho form of .a mass of rocks, with u serpent winding its way through the stones, a base for a bas-relief, on tho two sides of which are most Interesting Greek Inscriptions to the god, and many peculiarities of tho construction of tho building Illustrate with fulness and detail this Incomprehensible symbolic cult. In the precincts of the baths above, pear the Stadium, an ancient library has been uncovered, for completeness ami size comparable only to those of Per- gaums and Tlmgad In Africa, showing niches for statues, a platform tor roan ers, nnd galleries to cnnble attendants to have access to tho books. In addition to all this, the carrying away of 200,000 cubic metres ot earth, thus restoring tho orlglnnl level of tho Laths and bringing to light magnificent nnd well preserved pavements, has ndded Immensely to the height nnd grandeur of the ruins, which now stnud nbout 90 feet above the ground, their groat masses of loll coloring ngnlnst the blue Italian sky making un effect which It world be dim- cult to match elsewhere.

Practically all forme of fishing are goor fun, and none more so than bobbing foi eels, says a writer In the American Do- The outfit required Is simple, though pre paring It Is rather a gruesome task. You will need at least a hnlf pint ot tnose big angleworms called "night crawlers' for each bob you nro to prepare, and you will need a bob for each fisherman. The angleworms are threaded on a stout silk or linen thread (sawing silk doubled a number of times will answer very well) until you have about ten feet of continuous worm. A long knitting needle with n notch tiled at one end to hold the thread, or better still with an eye drilled In it, makes a good threader, if there is no knitting needle to bo ob tained you can make a very satisfactory substitute from fairly stiff wire. After your long worm la prepared, make a compact ball of It by doubling up lta length again and again; it Is also ad visable to pass a good many loops of ajlk thread tightly nbout the whole. Tie the bob to n, pleco of stout flahline six or eight feet In length and add a sinker of moderate weight Use a short, stiff polo; a section from the end of a com mon bamboo pole will do finely. Tho underlying idea of bobbing is thtVc The eels are attracted by the chiater of worms nnd proceed to bito chunks out of It. In this process their teeth, which aro exceedingly fine and sharp as needles, are caught In tho silk threads, and you can actually Jerk them out of tho water and Into a boat before they let go. It has a grtat advantage over using a bait ed hook, for you are not compelled to handle the slimy creatures In tolling them from your lino. Of course, the eels caught are not so largo as those some times captured with a hook and line, for tho tig follows offer so much re sistance that thoy often escape, but moderate sized ones aro taken In great numbers, and even nn occasional "old buster." This stylo of fishing is especially well adapted to salt water creeks and tide ways, and In such a case one should an chor his boat In shallow water, as the tide rises on the meadows. It Is also said to be used with very killing effect In ftesh water, wherever eels arc found in any numbers. To show how eifcetlve bobbing Is I might say that a friend and myself caught between seventy-live and a hundred ono night -ot course, eels il( most of their feeding after dark In abom two hours, and could have taken more but for the fact that our bobs wcie llter- illy chewed to bits.
