TAKEN BY DEATH Former President of United States Succumbs Suddenly at Oyster Bay. HAD BEEN ILL FOR ONE YEAR His Extraordinary Career as Leader of Men and Maker of History— Noted as Statesman, Soldier. Author and Explorer. New York—Col. Theodore Roosevelt died suddenly at an early hour Monday morning at his home In Oy •ter Bay. His physicians said death was caused by pulmonary embolism, •r the lodging in the lung of a clot of blood from a broken vein. Colonel Roosevelt’s last Illness may he said to date from last February. On February 5, it vas announced that he toad been removed from his home in Oyster Bay to the Roosevelt hospital tn this city, following an operation on one of his ears. Soon after his ar 'rival at the hospital he underwent two more opera Sons for the removal of diseased tissue in his infected ear, and It was admitted at the time that he was seriously 111. He remained at the hospital until March 3. Early in November the colonel was taken to Roosevelt hospital in this city for the treatment of rheumatism and sciatica. Was Typical American. Theodore Roosevelt, who was known as “the most typical American” throughout his career, had been fam ous for “setting records.” He was the youngest president the nation ever had, succeeding to the office on Wil liam McKinley’s death at the age of forty-two. Colonel Roosevelt is held to have had as diverse Interests and as wide acquaintance with all phases of life as any man In history. In addition to his Immense political activities, he was the author of many books on travel, sport, history, politics and other sub jects. * was a fighter for reform from the moment he first appeared in city politics In New York, a holder of many university degrees, an orator, a lec turer, great hunter, athlete. Interna tional peacemaker and militant lender of his followers at all times, whether tn or out of office. Was Born In New York City. Theodore Roosevelt was born Octo ber 27, 1858, in New York city. His father was Theodore Roosevelt and his mother before her marriage was Mar tha Bollock. The hoy began life with a small, frail body and not robust health. His ambition from yonth was to be strong, an athlete, n doer of great deeds and a scholar as well. His remarkable mental endowment was shown In the way he accomplished the dual object in life, so that after seven years and z half as president, during which he promulgated Innumer able reforms and na’lonal Issues, he went to Africa and for nearly a year was a hunter In the Jungles, undergo ing hardships, but coming out more ro bust and active than ever. It was predicted that Africa would kill Roosevelt, but In a few days’ time he had changed the hunting shirt for the clothes of the diplomat and was toeing Idolized and showered with hon ors in the courts of Europe. Starts His Political Career. Roosevelt completed his education at Harvard university In 1880. nnd the same year married Alice Hathaway Lee, daughter of George Cabot Lee of New York. She lived only four years nnd was the mother of the present Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, wife of Congressman Nicholas Longworth of Cincinnati. O. Colonel Roosevelt’s Interest in poli tics dates from the year after his mar riage to Miss I,ee. Some of the Re publican district leaders In New York had taken an interest in him. He seemed a likely young fellow, with vigor, ambition and some money. Two years later he was sent to the state assembly at Albany and began a ca reer which marked him out as a man devoted to the public Interest. After three years of assembly, how ever. Roosevelt thought he had enough, and for a time withdrew from puhlle life. He stepped out cordially hated by the corrupt politicians, disliked by many wealthy v ew Yorkers and al ready hailed as the acknowledged lead er of the reform element In his party. The death of his wife also was a fac tor In his temporary retirement, and he went to a ranch In North Dakota, where he was imrodueed as “that four eyed tenderf.Dt.” The tenderfoot, however, pnt tn prac tice some fundamental rules for hon esty In the conduct of the ranch he had pnrchased nnd the names of derision were soon dropped. He became popu lar. a noted hunter, a good shot and provided himself during his years of “FLU” MANY CENTURIES OLD Altogether a Mistake to Think That Disease Is in Any Manner Modern. Most of us think that the Influenza Is a comparatively modern disease, hut this is not so. We have records of It as far bark as 1173 and from 1510 on It Is absolutely Identified n the same influenza epidemic that has Just swept over the world. In the sixteenth cen tury there were three such epidemics, roughing it with * good constitution which was to prove Invaluable to him later in life. In ISB6 Roosevelt became a candi date for mayor of New fork, but ran third. His reputation was enhanced, however, and President Harrison nam ed him for a place on the national civil service commission. He dominated the body and later became its president. It was In 1886 that Mr. Roosevelt married Miss v ’ditl\ Kermit Carow while In London. She was the daugh ter of Charles Carow of New York. In the Spanish War. In 1353 Roosevelt resigned from the civil service commission and began a fight on Tammany hall. He served two years as police commissioner of New York city, stirring up the cor ruptionists, and then President McKin ley made him assistant secretary of the navy. When the Maine was blown up he resigned and helped raise the first volunteer regiment of cavalry for the war with Spain. It was the fa mous rough riders, of which Leonard Wood was made colonel. Colony Wood was later given a bri gade and Roosevelt promoted to com mand of the Rough Riders. Colonel Roosevelt was commended for heroic conduct at the battles of Las Guaymas and San Juan hill. Governor and President. Coming ha <c from the war, Roose velt was e*ected governor of New York. But he would not be bossed by the politicians, so Instead of giving him a second term they persuaded him to take the nomination for vice presi dent on the ticket with McKinley. When President McKinley, shot by an assassin, died on September 14. 1901, Roosevelt became president. President served out Mc- Kinley’s unexpireu term and was elect ed president in 1904 by the largest ma jority ever given a candidate for the office. In his seven and a half years In the White House he had ample op portunity to show the stuff that was in him. He lived deeply and broadly and was at once the accomplished man of the world, the student of national problems, as well as of books, the adroit politician, the forceful writer of books and eloquent public speaker. He had the happy knack of invent ing or reviving phrases that stayed in the memory of his hearers and those who heard him usually carried away with them an apt summary of condi tions so cleverly worded as to be not easily forgotten. As president, Roosevelt’s activities and scope of endeavor were immense; he became a great International figure through his many negotiations with foreign powers and took in hand many problems at home seldom touched by a president. Booms Taft for Presidency. Roosevelt declined a second elective term In 1908 and fostered the candi dacy of his secretary of war, William H. Taft, who was elected president. When he left office, March 4, 1909, Roosevelt was the unquestioned leader of his party. Taft was his close friend. Roosevelt went to Africa to secure specimens for museums nnd also. It is understood, to be out of the country and escape possible accusations of at tempting to influence the conduct of the new administration. Colonel Roosevelt was a mighty hun ter. His exploits in killing big game in equatorial Africa are well known through the book which he wrote on the subject. It was in the summer of 5 910 that Colonel Roosevelt traveled through the country promulgating his doctrine of of the "new nationalism,” and the next year he editorially attacked arbitration treaties with Great Britain and France, proposed by President Taft. Candidate of Progressives. At the Republican convention In Chi cago, beginning June 18, 1912, Taft was nominated by 21 votes over a ma jority, but a few hours before the nomination Roosevelt had withdrawn his name as a candidate, and that night at a meeting in Orchestra hall, Chicago, the Progressive party was given its first real Impetus In a demon stration for Roosevelt and at which he was named for president by the new party. A formal convention was held later and he nn as the regular candi date of the third party, drawing sup port from Republicans and Democrats alike. Woodrow Wilson, the Democrat, was elected, however, and the colonel had to be content with defeating Mr. Taft for second place. In 1914 Colonel Roosevelt led a party of exploration in South Amer ica, especially In the Interior of Bra zil. Then he made another tour of Europe. In 1916 he was again con sidered as a candidate for the presi dential nomination by the Progres sives. but at the last minute he de clined the honor, declaring his inten tion of supporting Mr. Hughes, the Re publican nominee. Since that time he had devoted his efforts largely to the task of teaching the need of mili tary preparedness and to helping, with his pen, in the wnr against the cen tral powers. He sought a chance to serve in the army, hilt was rejected. His three sons were officers In active service, and one. Quentin, was killed in an airplane combat. in the seventeenth nnd eighteenth, 12. and In the nineteenth, six. In 1510 historians tell us that hardly a sou! In Europe evaded It. The word Influenza shows that the disease has been known a long time, for It is from the Italian and means influence. It was supposed to he caused by some malign influence of the plan ets or of supernatural beings. T * was not until recently that the germ has been discovered. Great strides in Its treatment and cure were made in the recent siege. THE WAUWATOSA NEWS HIS DEATH GREAT LOSS TO NATION Theodore Roosevelt’s Life Work Is Warmly Praised by Ail His Countrymen.

YIGTOR BERGER AND FOUR FOUND GUILTY U. S. Jury Hits Socialists as Aids of Enemy. ALL FACE PRISON SENTENCE Finding Bars Milwaukee Politician. Publisher From Cot.jress—Defend ants Released Under SIO,OOO Bonds Each Pending Mo tion for New Trial. Chicago, Jan. 9. —Victor L. Berger, Milwaukee politician-publisher, and the only Socialist elected last fail to the Sixty-sixth congress, and four oth er national leaders of the Socialist party, were found guilty of sedition and disloyalty under the espionage act by a jury in Judge Landis’ court. Berger’s conviction bars him from congress. Those convicted with Berger for ob structing the nation’s war program against Germany and now facing sen tences from one to twenty years in a federal prison, fines from SI,OOO to SIO,OOO. or both, ure: Adolph Germer, national secretary of . the Socialist part. William F. Kruse, national secre tary of the Young People's Socialist party—the “Yipsels.” J. Louis Engtiahl, editor of the American Socialist and a party leader. Irwin St. John Tucker, Protestant Episcopalian rector, former newspa per man, and “red” propagandist. Sentence Is Withheld. The five defendants were released under SIO,OOO bonds each pending hearing of a motion for anew trial on January 23. Sentence was with held by Judge Landis until that time. The verdict—a sweeping victory for the government in its fight against the “red flag” and the seditious propa gandists—came as a terrific blow to the defendants. They had confidently believed that the five weeks of radical “preaching” given before the Jury had “converted” at least one. None, save Berger, had counted upon an acquit tal. but nil had believed a "hung jury” would result. While out from 11 a. m. until 4:43 p. m„ the jury took but three ballots. The first stood 10 to 2 for conviction, the second 11 to 1, and the third was a unanimous “guilty." The courtroom was jammed with Socialists, I. VV. W., bolshevik! and every division coming under the “red flag,” when the jury made Its finding With all business suspended in the federal building in honor of Theodore Roosevelt during the afternoon, they had packed the corridors. As soon as Bailiff Joseph Buckner, in charge of the jury, appeared and announced a verdict a squad of plain clothes men nnd deputy marshals took possession. They scattered through out the courtroom prepared to meet any demonstration. But none oc curred. Even the most radical of the radicals in that place of Justice seemed stunned. Berger appeared almost lifeless as he sat, his huge hulk crunched up in a chair behind his array of counsel. He seemed more deeply moved than the others, tears streaming down on his cheeks. He did not look up even when Joseph O’Sullivan, the court clerk, polled the jury, each member of that body arising in answer t*> his name nnd voicing the judgment “guilty.” Judge Landis made no comment on the verdict, confltoing himself to mere ly thanking the 12 men for their long services in the jury box. Berger Makes Brief Statement. After the jurors had filed hack to their room Berger was surrounded by his wife, two daughters and a score of women. The other defendants nervous ly wandered about the room while their counsel were making usual formal motions and nrranging for their release on previous bonds. The now deposed congressman-elect, the only Socialist to survive in last fall’s, elec tions nnd who now also goes into ob livion, finally aroused himself. Somewhnt shakily, his emotion great ly accentuating Jiis broad German ac cent, he said: "1 am completely surprised. I am no more guilty of dhis crime than the judge on the bench. I have lived in ac cordance with these principles for 37 years, and now I noit suffer for them.” United States Attorney Charles F. Clyne. who with his first assistant. Jo seph B. Fleming, directed the prosecu tion, declared: “This verdict is but America’s voice speaking. It is a verdict of this coun try’s people. It is n death-blow to bolshevism, which these five advo cated. and to the Ted flag.’ This jury has said that there can be but one flag in this country, the red, white and blue, and that those who are not with thi country are against it. f ever a case of sedition was pre sented in a courtroom, this was it. These men left nothing undone to ob struct our government in winning the war nnd to aid Germany. There is no surprise in the verdict. It couldn’t have been any thing else.” Indict Poet for Treason. New York. J"-. 9.—Herman Schef fauer, poet and author, a native of San Francisco, born of German par ents. was indicted by the federal grand Jury for treason.
