DEATH CALLS COLONEL THEODORE ROOSEVELT Oyster Bay, N. Y., Jan. 9.—Colonel Theodore Roosevelt died in his sleep at 4:15 this morning. The end came when no one was in his room but his valet. The following statement was made to the United Press by Dr. G. W. Faller, of Oyster Bay, the phy sician who last saw the Colonel. "Colonel Roosevelt retired at 12 last night feeling much better, at 4:15 this morning he simply ceased to breathe. Death was caused by pulmonary embolism." This pulmonary embolism, Dr. Faller explained is a blood clot upon one of the arteries of the lungs. The fu neral will be held at Christ's Episcopal church at Oyster Bay, Rev. George Talmadge will officiate, interment will be made at Young's Memorial cemetery at Oyster Bay. At the time of his death the only persons at Sagamore Hill were Colonel Roosevelt, his wife and the servants. Colonel Roosevelt spent Sunday evening reading and conversing with Mrs. Roosevelt and chatting with Dr. Faller who left him apparently much improved and in excellent spirits. He also dictated some letters despite of his recent return from the hospital where he had been suffering with sciati ca and other painful complications but at this time he seemed to have regained much of his old fighting spirit. When Dr. Faller left him he was laughing and called out ''good night," most cheerfully. At midnight he retired. Mrs. Roosevelt sat by his bed until he fell asleep she then went oher own room. At 4:15 the man servant became alarmed and called the nurse. There was nothing to be done, Roosevelt was dead. Mrs. Roosevelt was called and stood the shock bravely. Dr. Faller arrived a few minutes later. Colonel Roosevelt lay as if still asleep, he did not move in bed as he died, he lay just as he was when his wife stepped out of the room. Colonel Roosevelt arrived home Christmas day from the Roosevelt hospital. Immediately after he died his son, Archie Roosevelt, who is in Boston, was notified. He started for home immediately. Saga more Hill was closed and no one was allowed to enter the grounds after Colonel Roosevelt died. It was stated that his physician would make an official announcement lated in the day. Colonel Roosevelt was 60 years old, having been born on Oct. 27,1858. He was the 26th president of the United States becoming president Sept. 14, 1901 upon the assassination of Wm. McKinley at Buffalo, N. Y.

MOVEMENT NOT ONE OF VIOLENCE Berlin, Jan. 6.—Bolshevikism in Germany is generally an inteddectual movement with practically no violence as compared with the Russian variety.

There is a growing fear that the allied capitalism intends to ex ploit Germany. No employment and lack of food contin ues. Men out of work and deserters from the army and navy find it very difficult to secure enough to eat and are easily influenced by the Bolsheviki. —,—jwsj 100,000 TROOPS TO COME HOME Washington, Jan. 6—General Pershing has notified the war department that before March 1st to assign to early convoy home of 100,000 combative troops in addition to the 375,000 now on the priority list.
