Roosevelt Wanted to Enjoy His Home in Quietude Last Evening. Oyster Bay. X. V., Oct. 23. The quiet routine of life at Sagamore Dill was picked up again by Colonel Roosevelt and his family yesterday as though it had not been interrupted by the tiring of a bullet meant to kill the master of the house. For the first time since he was shot in Milwaukee eight , days ago Colonel Roosevelt was unattended last night by a physician. There was no one in the house except members of the family and servants and the colonel spoke hopefully of being able, after one day more of rest, gradually to resume his work. y. Except for the fact that Colonel T Roosevelt was in bed last evening in stead of at work in his library, there was nothing to suggest that anything out of the ordinary had occurred. Four physicians came with the colo nel on hiB arrival at Oyster Bay from Chicago yesterday, and after they bad dressed his wound they told him that the one essential was complete rest. If their directions are observed, it is believed that the ex-president's com plete recovery is probable, although it cannot yet be said that he is entirely out of danger.. . Dr. Alexander Lambert and Dr. Scurry Terrell, Who accompanied Colonel Roose velt from Chicago, were joined in Xew York by Dr. Joseph A. Blake and Dr. Oeorge E. Brewer. After examining the patient, they said that the wound was still wide open, spoke of the possibility of infection and added they were unable to say whether it would he possible for biin to take up the work of the cam- puign. Colonel Roosevelt said, when his wound had been dressed, that there was no longer the need of constant supervis ion of physicians, because he was "all right." , The physicians were doubtful at first whether he should be left alone, and it was suggested that one of their number remain at Sagamore Hill. But the colonel insisted that it was unneces sary, and the physicians' concluded it would be wisest to accede to his wishes. Danger of a sudden change in his con dition being remote, it was thought that the colonel would make more rapid progress toward recovery if he were left alone with his family without sugges tion of anything other than the usual conditions which surround his life at Sagamore Hill. The physicians all went to Xew York and said that they would return until this afternoon. Their de cision was regarded by Colonel Roose velt's friends as an indication of his improved condition. Refreshed by Long Sleep. A long night's sleep largely offset the trip from Chicago, and the patient was greatly refreshed when he awoke this morning. Col. Roosevelt at once de clared he was hungry and breakfast was . served an hour ahead of the usual time. Roosevelt expected to sit up several hours to-day, but word went out that no visitors were to be permitted to see him. His physicians have told him that he must see no one till Thursday, and upon bis obedience to this order denend bin I cdisnce of resuming campaign work later. .Tames Amos or "Jim' as the colonel calls bis negro butler, is acting as nurse, under the direction of Mrs. Roosevelt. He has lieen with the colonel so long tht be is able to anticipate his wants and care for him more satisfactorily than almost any one els except Mrs. Roosevelt herself. Some of Colonel Roosevelt's friends (were solHtous for his safety at Saga more Hill and insisted that be should be protected against the possibility of another attack, but the colonel would not hear of a personal guard, and had only his family and the servants about bim last night. Although his physician would make no promises. Colonel Roosevelt was con- i ft. lent that, he would soon be back in ' the campaijni. at least to the extent of i exercising general direction. He ex pressed his intention of going to Madi son Squar Oarden. New York, to speak on Octolter 3d. even if he had strength to any only a few sentence, and after an other day of rest expects to begin preparation of an addres of half an hour's length. He hopes aUo to loll short conference with Sena, r Dixon. fJcorge W. Perkins and a few other pro gressive leaders on Thursday. An instance of the fi ielity with which the physicians orders against visitors ii lieing enforced was furnished when Win. H. Hotcbkiss, chairman of the state Progressive psrty. rime to Oyster Bay to see the colonel. Mr. Hoteiikis got by the guards, but w baited at the residency itself. Colonel Roosevelt rnt out his regret that be was not able to receive the Mate chairman, and mad an appointment for a conference Thursday.
