The Death of Senator Marcus A.
Hanna is Only a Question
of Time.
A Sudden And Unexpected Change in
His Condition for the Worse Took
Place Sunday Morning:,
His Pulse Beat at the Alarming Rate
of 137 and His Respiration Was
, Above 40 His Tempera
, ture Was 103.8.
Washington, Feb. 15. Senator Han
na's condition at 6 a. m. Monday was
critical In the extreme. Ho was slow
ly sinking, but on giving him injections
of brandy ho revived slightly.
Washington, Feb: 15. 'Sunday was
regarded as tho crucial day in Sena
tor Hanna's heroic battle for life. It
b'egan with assurances of quite an op
timistic character. Tho first news of
tho day from tho sick room was an
nounced shortly after 7 o'clock a. m.
The senator, the doctors said, had
passed a perfectly quiet night. His
temperature at 7 o'clock was 103.8,
pulse 120 and was strong and regular,
and his respiration was declared to bo
satisfactory, although no figure was
At intervals of two hours during the
night Senator Hanna had been arous
ed and given nourishment, after which
tie immediately would resume his
sleep. Tho doctors supplemented this
announcement with tho statement that
the condition of tho senator at this
time surpassed all their expectations.
This statement hardly had been Is
sued when an unexpected change for
tho worso took place. Dr. Osier had
gono to Mr. Hanna's room and Dr.
Carter and Secretary Elmer Dover
had stepped down to the dining room
for breakfast. Dr. Rlxey had not ar
rived, and the senator was alone with
his nurses. Suddenly he became no
ticeably weaker. His rapid breathing
excited alarm, and other signs of dis
tress caused a hurried summons for
both physicians. On their almost In
stant arrival his pulse was beating at
the alarming rate of 137 and his res
piration was above 40. The oxygen
apparatus was put Into use Immedi
ately, the breathing cono was placed
over the senator's nostrils and relief
At 9:30 o'clock an official bulletin
was Issued covering this period. Its
ptatement was as follows:

night, but ho is weaker this morning.

tion 40. Rlxey, Osier, Carter."

further comment on the outlook, hut
It was noticeable that their optl
mistism of the early morning had been
Dntirely dissipated by the 8 o'clock
jinking spell. However, for tho next
few hours the reports, which came un
officially from the bedside of tho sena
lor, all told of his wonderful recupera
tive powers. At 10:30 a. m. Dr. Osier
declared tho distinguished patient to
be entirely recovered from the depres
sion of the earlier morning hours. At
ihls time the doctor left for Baltimore,
with the understanding that he would
return at 4:30 o'clock Sunday after
noon. Drs. Rlxey, Carter and Futcher
remained in constant attention.
Tho following official bulletin was Is
tued by the physicians at 11 o'clock:
"There-has been no material change
In Senator Hanna's condition since 6
o'clock. Temperature now 104, pulse
130, respiration 40. Rlxey, Osier, Car
tor." The 8 o'clock bulletin Sunday even
ing showed no improvement In tho
senator's condition. Some milk and
whisky were administered at 6:30
o'clock and shortly thereafter tho pa
tient was given another bath, but It
caused no reduction In the tempera
ture. For an hour after the bath Sen
ator Hanna dosed and was resting com
fortably. More nourishment was giv
en at 8 o'clock. Throughout the even
ing the doctors gave oxygen for a cou
ple of minutes at intervals of half an
Dr. Osier retired for the night im
mediately after issuing tho 11 o'clock
bulletin, saying that ho did not antici
pate any immediate change.
All hopo of Senator Hanna's recov
ery has gontf. Mr. Dover has just stat
ed" that there is no qhanco for
life. "It is just a matter of temporary
Improvement," ho Bald. Tho doctors,
however, are not preparing for imme
diate dissolution.

resting easily. Mr. Dover camo from
tho sick room and in response to a
question said tho senator's appearance
