BUrrALO Sept 9 This has been an
other day in which all the news which has
come from President SIcKinlej s sick
room has been good news the best news
possible It is pcrfectlj safe to say that
every doctor in attendance upon the res
ident believes he will set well Of course
none of tic phjslcans has as jet fully
committed himself to that statement The
most they will say is that the condition
of the President seventj two hi 3 after
his wounds were inlilcted is that of a man
who is going to recover
The last bulletin in the afternoon con
tained the expression The Presidents
condition continues to improve lie is
gaining ground in other words and not
merely holding his own He suffers no
pain lie is composed and comfortable
the bodily functions are reported as nor
mal and not a single unfaorable symp
tom has developed A phjsician of long
practice in this city said that in the case
of an rdtnary patient if there were no
Ejmptoms of blood poisoning after
hours that factor would be elim
Perhaps continued the doctor in
the case of a President the phjslcians in
charge may think it better to allow an
other twentj four hours to pass before
they go so far as to say that all danger
of that complication is over Yet as a
matter of fact if there are no symptoms
of blood poisoning after scventj two
hours it is safe enough to count blood
poisoning out of the problem The next
danger is that of peritonitis Of that the
danger cannot be said to be passed before
from five to seven dajs But there has
not developed a single sjmptom of
peritonitis He acts prcclsclj ssa man
who was going to et well like one who
wss going to move steadily and evenly
onward to recovery
ot IILe Giirflclds
People are quoting with some uneasi
ness the early bulletins and the general
atmostphere of hopefulness incident to
the first few dajs after President Gar
field was shot Dr was spoken
to on that subject tills afternoon
To begin with he said there is a
difference of twenty jears of progress in
surgery to be taken into account when
we compare the cae of President Gar
field with that of President
Then again the place of General Gar
fields wound was an unfortunate one
that of President SIcKinlej s is very for
tunate The surgeons could not get at or
nccuratelv locate the Injuries to Presi
dent Garfield We know exactly where
the Injuries of President SIcKInley arc
The cases arc not parallel and then as
I said there has been great progress In
urgcrj in the interval between 1SS1 nd
The first bulletin this morning caused
tome little uneasiness It reported Presi
dent SIcKInley as having passed a rest
less night It was remarked that rest
lessness was one of the early sjmptoms
of peritonitis The bulletin caused de
cided disappointment and among the less
sanguine ones a distinct tendency toward
giouu This however was speedily dis
sipated It was explained bj physicians
that restlcsncs in a patient injured as
Is President SIcKInley must be expected
at times
But all was relieved by the 9 20
a m bulletin This bulletin wai Arm and
positive in tone The- good news spread
with surprising rapldltj throughout the
city Naturally the took more and
more exaggerated forms as It was passed
on from one to another It was even re
ported that the phjslcians In charge had
made the formal statement that the
President was out of danger
This however simmered down to the
statement that a member of the Cabinet
had said that tomorrow the phjslcians
would announce that the danger was
Cvcr Whether the phjslcians will go to
far as to commit themselves to that ex
tent as early as tomorrow remains to be
The conservative sentiment Is not only
that they will not but that the strong
probability was that no such statement
would come from them for three or four
dajs even If the President eontlnues to
Improve without a setback of anj kind
So -Search for tlir IlnIIct
Nothing was done today in the way of
endeavoring to locate the bullet that is
In the With no sjmptoms of blood
poisoning from It and with every rrospect
that It hanbecomo encjsted there is no

President and the routine of nursing con
tinue the same as from the start
No food is token bj the patient The
only nourishment taken today was by an
injection of lukewarm water and the
white of an egg No sedatives are given
for the reason that the patient Is on the
whole quiet and rsts now and then sleep
that is restful The same rigorous meas
ures to enforce absolute stillness for a
distance of two blocks all around the Slil
burn house are continued as before Hopes
in all directions
arc drawn across the streets
rections two blocks awaj ropes bejond
which no pedestrian may pass without
showing credentials
The soldiers continue to pace their beats
all about the house itself and about the
Glcnny house that is next to it The only
persons permitted In the block whereon
the Slltburn house stands are the people
who live in the houses there the visitors
who are admitted to the Slllburn house
and the telegraph
the newspaper reporters
graph operators the soldiers the police
the Secret Sen ice men and such messen
gers and letter carriers as have errands
It is altogether a curious and rather an
impressive scene There are five large
tents on the vacant lot oproslte the
house In the largest of these are tho
newspapermen with a long table stretch
ing down the middle on which to write
and over in a corner three or four tele
graph instruments clicking way The
United States soldiers occupy the other
four tcnts
On the opposite corner and on another
vacant lot is still another and a smaller
tent Ths is the official telegraph office
of the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany Through this office which at first
was In the Slllburn barn hut which was
removed on account of the noise of the
instruments go out all ire bulletins as
to the Presidents conditio i which are
sent to all quarters of tho globe Here
also messages of sjirpathy from the
kinss and emperors rulers of all kinds all
over the globj find their Imal destina
On the grass In fiont of this tent nws
paper men hrri chairs and tables this
afternoon and some were dictating their
stories to typewriters and then turning
them In sheet by sheet to the telegraph
operators Newspapers from far and
wide are represented and at all times
there Is a throng of anywhere from
twentj to reporters about the tents
It is a busj little scene In Its but
the marvelous and Impressive feature of
It all is the sllcnco In which evcrj thing
is done There Is a hush like that of a
church in the intervals of the service
Avoiding All Vilxe
What talking there Is done is done in a
low tone hardly above a whisper When
injbody comes from the Slllburn house
there is a quiet almost tiptoe rush across
the street toward them on the part of the

Dr nnd parilcularly Sir Slll

newsj ape men
Sir Corteljou said that Sirs Slc
Klnlej was better Informed as to the c
act facts In the President s case than has
been reported She knew the nature of hs
Injuries and like else Is
buojed up the continued favorable re
ports of the physicians which In her case
naturally have been presented with more
emphasis than in the formal bulletins
given out to the public
Sirs SIcKinlej is still under the careful
supervision of Dr and Is bearing
up unusuallj well under his prescriptions
and advice Sirs SIc illiams the rela
tive from Chicago with whom Sirs
went driving today and
said that the Presidents wife passed a
fairly comfortable night and is giving all
her strength to going through the ordeal
she has been called upon to meet She
saw her husband this morning and had a
longer talk with him than on any pre
vious visit
Of all those who came from the Slllburn
house none seems more pleased over the
Presidents condition than Senator Han
na He said of the news that the doctors
gave him when he called at the house ths
morning that it was just glorious and
he added that the Pre sident was so bright
that he would be calling for a cigar next
The doctors still refuse to allow the Pres
ent to talk and evidently a good deal
that he would be glad to say renalns un
MletiKtli Miuvtn
Notwithstanding what he had gone
through and the fact that he has receiv
ed no nourishment he still
has a remarkable degree of strength This
was illustrated this morning when with
out assistance he turned In Ills
bed without suffering pain what
Ilardlj second to Senator Hanna in the
matter of encouraging optimism is Col
Sljron T Hcrrick of Cleveland Why
the President asked for a morning paper
this morning said Colonel Hcrrick but
of course he did not get it He speaks
confidently of his rccoverj and mentions
things which he proposes to do when he
gets well He has not jet seen anjone
save the doctors the nurses Sirs SIcKin
lej and Sccretarj Cortelvou Speak
ing of the subject of the- assassination
Colonel Hcrrick continued A year or
two ago the President was speaking of
the possibility of being nssassUiated ard
he said tliat at public functions there was
no of preventing it

BUFFALO Sept 9 The Ideal Septem
ber which the sun ushered in this
morning seemed to those who waited out
side the Slilburn house to mike the con
ditions pirtlcularlj favorable for the
patient Inside on whom all their Interest
centred As has been the case every
morning before the first bulletin has
been issued there was the greatest
felt as to how the President had
pissed the night No bulletin had been
Issued after the one at 9 p m in which
the Presidents condition was said to be
The onlv clue which the watchers had
as to the Presidents condition after that
bulletin was given by Harry Hamlin who
left the house at 230 a m He sala there
was no change so far as those in the
house outside of the physician and
nurses knew Dr Parke had been the
phjsician assigned to watch the Presi
dent during the night although Dr
it has been learned spent little
time awaj from the President as his in
timate knowledge of him is of the great
est Importance and consequently it is
that he Is not on duty
Despite the early hour there was the
usual crovvd waiting to receive the bulle
tin at G o clock
bhortly after S oclock the doctors who
had not taken part In tho all night vigil
began to arrive at the house DrVas
dln the Hospital specialist was
the first to reach the house ard Join Dr
Itixej who had remained In the house all
Drs Sljnter and arrived
shortly afterward and It was apparent
that the morning consultation alwajs
preliminary to the Issuing of tho fore
noon bulletin was about to be held It
was learned that the consultation which
Is not as thorough as that held in the
afternoon developed the fact that the
satisfaction as to the Presidents condi
tion continued
Before the bulletin was issued there
were a number of urrivals Among the
visitors were ex Postmaster General Bis
sell Secretary Wilson and Charles P
Sanger Tho bulletin was Issued at 9 0
a m It read as follows
The Presidents condition is becoming
more and more satisfactory Untoward

George B Corteljou Secretary to the
This bulletin was one of the most en
couraging that has been issued so far It
showed more conclusively than others
the gradual rise In the hopes of the
Jtosw ejr Iarke and Secretarj
came from the house together shortlj
after the bulletin had been issued Dr
Parke answered the manj enquiries put to
him bj the newspaper men with a cheer
ful and positive assurance of confi
Th situation siid he Is cntlrelj
sattsfuctorj There are- no sjmptoms to
ciuse alarm
Dr Parke was then asked about the ear
lier bulletin and what Importance the
phjslcians had attached to the restless
ness of the President during the night
and if it warranted any apprehension re
garding his condition
Not In the least he replied It Is en
tirely natural that a patient in the Presi
dents condition should have some pi
riods of restlessness But he is
not receiving narcotics He is fully
consclous at all times when he
Is awake and his mind Is clear
Of course the danger point has
not been passed but the continued ab
sence of unfavorable sjmptoms strength
ens our hope The period for peritonitis
to appear Is rapidly passing and there Is
not a sign of Inflammation
The consultation began promptlv at S
o clock this afternoon and lasted about
flftj minutes The dctiils of It were
awaited with the greatest interest by the
watchers outside Before It was over Ab
ner SIcKinlej with Sir Sleeks was scn
on the lawn chatting and later Secretary
Gage Secretarj Illtihcock and Secretary
Wilson who had lemiinfd to learn tie
result came out
That the consultation had developed
nothing to caUEe anxietj and that the re
sult had been quite the eontrarj was
shown In the announcement made by Scc
ntary Gage as he walked down the
street that he and Attorncj General
Knox would leave for Washington this
We have been much reassured the
consultation said Sir Gage evcrj thing
seems to be all right 1 guess the other
members of the Cabinet will be going
back In the- next twentj four hours or so
Of course we will hold ourselves in readi
ness to start back here at a moments
notice and some of us maj come back
I he bulletin that alwijs follows the
consultation was given out about 3 SO al

was as follows

George B Corteljou Secretary to the
This bulletin showed a decrease In the
pulse from 122 to 11J but an increise of
0 3 of a dtgree in the temperature In
spite of that the bulletin was of a very
satlsfactorj nature showing that nothing
alarming h id developed at the consulta
tion and onlj strengthened the hopes that
hive been slowly rising that the Presi
dent would recover
The first doctors to appear after the
consultation were Dr Sljnter and Dr
larke Tliej were followed shortly after
ward by Dr Sfinn and Dr SlcIJuraej
Dr SIj liter said the consultation had been
somewhat briefer than the one jestcrday

able sjmptoms gives us more encourage
The President Is calm and courageous
I shall stay here tonight but go

Dr Slann who came with Dr SIc
Burnej In answer to enquiries addressed
to him disclosed a few Interesting facts
concerning the Presidents treatment He
said that jtsterday the President took
a little cold water through the mouth
Everj thing- else was Injected It was
necessary to make a slight change
In this treatment It was found thtt
the cold water did not agree with him
and water ts hot as he could take
It was given him The results had been
much better Dr Slann said the Presi
dent showed a disposition to talk but
the doctors had given orders that he not
be allowed to
We found said Dr Slann no signs
of pus or peritonitis but of course the
danger of these Is not jet passed It Is
too earij to saj when it will b passed
There is no crisis In a case of this char
acter In penumonln for instance there
Is a sudden drop In the temperature
which shows that the danger point Is
passed But a case of this kind Is grad
ual one way or another
The doctors said they would return at
10 oclock for another consultation after
which a bulletin would be issued
Senitor Hanna called for the third time
during the at 230 He came out ft
5 oclock
Senator Hann t was asked if ho had anj
opinion to exprss regarding the sugges
tions made by the Governors of different
States on the advisability of legislation
to efface
I hope It will materialize but It is a
matter I dont feel like discussing just

The regular guard was maintained

Vice President Roosevelt made a half

oclock He was Int high spirits and
seemed to feel that the crisis bad been

In answer to a question as to the Presi

thing is all right j

LONDON Sept 10 The newspapers
here again this morning focus attention
on the progress of President SIcKInley
and the suppression of anarchism Re
garding the Iresident there is a chorus
of gratification that the latest news Is
also the best
In respect to anarchism there is an ex
pression of satisfaction that the Ameri
can Government does not appear likely to
be driven to late steps bj the per
fectly natural popular clamor for the
wild justice or revenge There are some
such as the Standard which mildly
lecture the Americans for having toler
ated the murderous propaganda In their
country although as the Slornlng Post
observes Great Britain certainly cannot
throw the first stone Inasmuch as revo
lutionaries of every sort have been al
low eil usjlum here for generations
Tho Standard again urges that the
sure way of suppressing the anarch
ists Is to lay hands on the propagandists
whom It compares with the thugs and
holds that anarchism can be crushed In
Europe and America as the thugs were
in India The favorite opinion seems to be
the co operation of the police of all na
tions as a means of suppression
The Dally News alone propagates a
doctrine which Is one or laisscz falre It
Is the celf respect of Burope It sajs
which iias so far restrained it from pro
claiming war on anarchism There Is a
formidable danger In repressive measures
Bepression begets r pression A Govern
ment maj begin bj fighting crime but it
ends by an assault on liberty of
opinion It would not be long before a
war against anarchism became a war
against socialism
The first of society Is to deal
with the conditions making for Ignorance
starvation nnd suffer
ing Until the modern State learns how
to lessen the volume and Intensity of
social anarchism will continue to
The papers of jesterday afternoon also
express a demand for a gen
eral suppression of anarchists and
The Globe sajs However objection
able ex post facto legislation may be
deemed as a rule this case Is one
that calls for the passage Congress of

A Proposition Mnilc by the Ohio

COLUMBUS Ohio Sept 3 Chairman
SI A Dougbertj of the Democratic State
Committee submitted to Charles
Dick Chairman of the State Republican
Committee a proposition to abstain from
public speaking during the campaign In
view of tho attempt to assassinate the
President Chairman Dick tonight declin
ed to accede- to this proposition Sir
in his letter stated that a
similar proposition was mad the Dem

was assassinated and was accepted bj the
Republicans General Dick in his rtplj
points out that this is erroneous Gov

the Republican Committee refused the
proposition though later after Garfields
death in September the spe king cam
paign was suspended for ten dajs or
more General Dick quotes Governor
Nashs letter in 11 as follows

BUFFALO Sept 3 Dr Charles G SIc
Burnej of New York who arrived here
jesterday to join the staff of phjslcians
In attendance on the President was seen
by a reporter tonight at the residence of
Dr Slann upon his return from the con
sultation held at 3 oclock He was asked
for an expression of his opinion of what
the had meant from a surgical stand
point He said the had been passed
with no unfavorable symptoms
in the Presidents condition
The past twenty four hours he said
have given us a great increase of confi
dence In that time things might
have happened that have not happened
No attempt has been made to find the
bullet We are not In fact concerned
about it AVe think that It Is In tho
muscles of the back and Is behind the
lowest rib While we have not seen nor
felt It we have come to that belief from
the two holes made bj It
We don t care anjthlng about the bul
let unless It gives localized pain In that
case we would know about where it was
and would remove It by an operation If
the X rays arc used It will probably be
only through curiosity nowvTheJ2res
dentirad a lower piistiToday Even
at Its presinc rtHe quality is good
Sir SlcKinleys pulse Is erratic
and even at its Increased rate It is
strong and good
Dr was then asked when
the Iresident in the event of continuing
improvement could be felt to be out of
When he has a normal temperature
pulse and normal breathing
When might that be doctor asked
the reporter
In a week
Do jou think he is going to get well
I think he Is doing well I cant answer
categorical questions jes or no though
Tomorrow- morning we be able to
paint the picture in rosy colors I think
it best to wait until then before making
things too optimistic
In the first place the President might
have had violent and fatal peritonitis
That danger has nor been eliminated
The peritonitis that might develop now
w ould be of localized character and could
be treated much more Then
again he might have had within these
twentj four hours septic poisoning That
danger also has practically been elimi
nated The restlessness that the Presi
dent had last night of which mention was
made In the bulletin this morning was
simply the result of ljin in bed There
was no weakness resulting from It
