Reassuring News From the Mllburn
BUFFALO, Sept. S. Through this quiet,
peaceful Sunday every word that came
from the big vine-clad house In Dela
ware avenue, in which the stricken Chief
Magistrate of the Nation lies battling for
life, was reassuring and tonight the
chances of his recovery are so greatly im
proved that all of those who have kept
the patient vigil at his bedside feel
strongly thafl his life will be spared.
, The developments of last night and to
day were dreaded, but hour after hour
passed and the , distinguished patient,
struggling there 'beneath the watchful
eyes of physicians and trained nurses,
showed no unfavorable signs.- Five times
during the day the doctors" and surgeons
assembled for consultation, and each time
the verdict was unanimous that what
change had occurred was for the better.
Not the slightest premonitory symptom
of peritonitis appeared and the fresh hope,
born with the morning, grew stronger and
stronger as thet day advanced until, to
"ward evening, tne confidence expressed In
the President's recovery seemed almost
Dr. Charles McBurney, the famous New
York surgeon, who had, been summoned
in consultation, after a thorough exami
nation, in which he said he had found
not a single unfavorable symptom, joined
in the last afternoon bulletin which de
clared that the President's condition was
-satisfactory to the physicians present
It fa nod strange, -therefore, that tho
Vice-President, the members of the Cabi
net and other distinguished visitors who
called came away with, lighter hearts and
buoyant tread and gave expression to Che
most, optimistic sentiments.
Encouraging: Newa Spread.
The encouraging news spread oyer the
exposition city with great rapidity and
thousands came in carriages, in street
cars and afoot to learn for themselves
of tho- faith and confidence that existed
about the Mllburn house. The brightness
of the day, with its cool, bracing atmos
phere, added to the general cheerfulness,
and when a score of newsboys darted into
tho crowd about 6 o'clock shouting
"Exfira, the President will live," it was
with difficulty that they could suppress
the shouts of thanksgiving that rose in
their throats. And the newspaper men,
many of whom have been at their posts
for 48 hours continuously, remained stead
fastly throughout the day in the little
white-walled tents across the street from
the house where the country's patient Jay
and flashed the news -oyer the land and
And yet, despite all this optimism, the
President is by no means out of danger.
Not one of his physicians; not one of his
advisers who Is admitted to- tho inner
councils has the temerity to go so far
as to declare that he is.T But, if he con
tinues to improve for one day more, the
danger of peritonitis, which is most
dreaded, will have practically disappeared.
Yesterday one of the doctors thought 43
hours would be the limit of thes danger
from that source, but his more conserva
tive colleagues believe at least 24 hours.
possibly 36, from this time must elapse
before the possibility of peritonitis shall
have vanished. That disposed of, still
other complications may arise. Blood poi
soning may set in or an abscess form
where the bullet is imbedded in the mus
cles of the back.
Thus far the balL of the assassin, which
is still In the body, gives the physicians
no anxiety. But If the slightest inflam
mation appears in fhe region of tne lead,
it will be immediately extracted. No
difficulty is anticipated in this regard.

All the effects of the ether which was
administered when the operation was per
formed on the exposition grounds had
disappeared this morning and the Presi
dent's mind was perfectly clear during the
time he was awake today.
Today for the first time he enjoyed
natural sleep. While he was still more or
less under the influence- of the anesthe
tic his slumber was restless and disturbed
and did him Jltt'lo real good. Today, be
tween 9 and 4 o'ejock, he had the solace
of natural slumber for about four hours
and the physicians stated officially that
his sleep had been "quiet and reposeful,"
and had. helped $he suffer a gr,fldeal.

morning and is progressing satisfactorily.
All day the members of the Cabinet and
others associated with tho President in
public life came solicitous and went' away
almost jubilant, aU reflecting the hopeful
outlook at the Milburh house.
Vice-President Roosevelt received the
earlier bulletins and after going to church
hurried to the residence. There he was
joined by Senator Hanna. They came
away together and gave expression to the
most confident and 'encouraging senti
ments. The Vice-President not only
shared the cheerful 'feeling, but was ex
Senator Hanr.a came again during the
afternoon and was seldom far removed
from. the Mllburn housj. Secretary Root
has taken up quarters immediately next
door and was in frequent consultation
with those inside. He and Secretary
Gage, Secretary Hitchcock and Attorney
General Knox called together about noon
and indeed t'here was no time dur ng the
day when some member of the Cabinet
was not in the house where his stricken
chief lay. .
Even those most prominent In public life
did not see him, as the doctors would not
relax the iron-clad rule they have laid
down to prevent the least drain upon his
energies and vitality. Those "who came
and went moved slightly and reverently,
receiving the latest statements from the
doctors and departing.
All the members of the Cabinet are now
here except Secretaries Hay and Long.
The former telegraphed today that he
would start from Newbury tomorrow and
would probably be here tomorrow night
Secretary Long telegraphed that he was
coming, but did not specify the time.
Cabinet Members Discuss Crisis.
The Cabinet members feel it to be their
duty to be here In this crisis to meet
any emergency. They are holding no for
mal meetings, although there are somo
matters of public business which they
dally discuss informally and the possible
contingencies should the President grow
worse are also thoroughly canvassed.
They do not believe that there Is the
most remote possibility that Vice-President
Roosevelt will be called upon to
exercise the functions of Chief Magistrate
under the disability clause of the Consti
tution while the President lives. Vice
President Roosevelt will not hear of such
a course. Still, in the event of grave in
ternational complications, an emergency
might occur and the question has arisen
in their minds as to who should pro
claim the disability provided for by the
Constitution. That instrument Is silent
on the subject. There Is no precedent to
follow. During the protracted Illness of
President Garfield before his death, Vice
President Arthur was not called upon to
act. The consensus of opinion among
the members of the Cabinet Is that, should
the occasion arise, they themselves would
have to decide and proclaim the exis
tence of the disability. The Supreme
Court, they say, could not do so as there
would be no way in which the question
could be raised before that tribunal. It Is
considered probable that the haziness of
the Constitution on this point will lead
to agitation for an enactment, and If
necessary for a Constitutional amendment
to define exactly what shall constitute
disability of the President, and to pro
vide for the temporary exercise of the
functions of Chief Magistrate by the Vice
President Messages of Inquiry.
The interest In the President's condition
was such across the Canadian border that
the Associated Press was asked to furnish
a bulletin this morning to be read in tlie
churches in Quebec and Montreal, and
many requests of a similar character
came direct to Secretary Cortelyou from
different parts of the United States. The

BUFFALO, Sept 9. It Is reported here
that Emma Goldman, the anarchist lead
er, was here 'last Monday, and that she
occupied a house a few doors from where
Czolgosz lived. Superintendent Bull Is

said to have asked New, York to arrest
her. New 'York" police are said to be in

The members of. the. Cabinet are doing!
everything In their power to prevent the
sensational exploitation of Czolgosz, be
cause he undoubtedly craves notoriety,
and because his fellow-anarchists 'through
out the country love It. They do not de
sire to place any stone In the path of the
authorities who are laboring to unravel
the plot, if any plot existed, and all the
machinery of the Government secret ser
vice will be used to aid the state authori
ties In the prosecution of their Investiga
tion, but by the direct request of Secrc-k
tary Root, on behalf of his colleagues, the
District Attorney and the police will not
permit the prisoner to be seen or Inter
viewed, nor will they discuss the methods
or the 'results of their efforts to discover
the originators of -the plot. All that has
leaked out from the jail shows that the
prisoner Is vain and boastful of his- crime
and would, If given an opportunity, fill
the newspapers with columns of his va
porlngs. There Is no truth in the reports that
the Cabinet discussed the question of the
wholesale arrest of anarchists In different
parts of the country, although In an In
formal way they have naturally talked
over the danger from .those advocates
of the destruction of all governments and
the advisability of possible legislation
upon the subject. Neither have they can
vassed, so far as can be learned, the ad
visability of a proclamation to foreign
countries concerning the catastrophe. Thp
necessity for 6uch a notification would
seem useless, as every government In the
world has already taken cognisance of
the crime, as Is evident from the cables
from all parts of the world that have
poured In here.
A member of the firm of Walbrldge &
Co.. It Is said, has Identified the box In
which was the revolver with which Czol
gosz shot President McKlnley, as having
the price marks of that firm. It Is sup-'
posed the weapon was sold on Tuesday
last. It is not know whether It was per
sonally purchased by Czolgosz. Only the
empty box was found in Czclgasz' bag.
Superintendent Bull said today that he
had been advised of the arrests at Chi
cago and that he was making a careful
Inquiry aimed at showing any connection
that may exist between the men in cus
tody and his prisoner.
Czolgosz still continues to eat well and
sleep well, and seems absolutely Indif
ferent to his fate. He makes no in
quiries as to the condition of the Presi
dent and apparently cares nothing at
all as to the outcome of his Injuries.
The police continue their precautions,
for the protection of Czolgosz from mob
violence. Although there does not seem to

kept posted during the night around the
police station, where he Is a prisoner and
a reserve force was held subject to Im
mediate call. Loiterers who were found
about the station were promptly ordered
to move on.
Alfonzo Stutz a German, 35 years ofv
age. has been arrested here. He is said,
to have arrived here within an hour of
Czolgosz and to have a room adjoining
Nowak's, on Broadway. At police head
quarters it was said. they had not been
able to connect Stutz with the anarchists.
The fact that he arrived so soon after
Czolgosz, and was stopping In the same
house, aroused suspicion and he was
placed under arrest. Brass knuckles were
found on him.
Superintendent of Police Bull clears
.Alfonso Stutz of any part In the plot
against the life of President McKlnley.
Discussing his arrest with an Associated
Press representative today he said:
"We are satisfied that Stutz did not
even know Czolgosz and that he had
nothing to do with the crime. He ar
rived here the day Czolgosz did and
roomed near him. We rounded him up
with several others whom we believed
might have been Implicated. We found
a pair of brass knuckles on him and as
that was an offense we held him for it

scription bought an order for a. ticket to

Union Station early that evening; but
subsequently the ticket was sold to an

or not the police and the Federal offi

CHICAGO, Sept. 8. If any further
proof were needed that Leon Czolgosz
was the guest of Chicago anarchists

murderous mission against President Mc

The 11 men and women, who are avowed
anarchists, were formally booked tonight
on the charge of conspiracy to commit
murder. They will be taken before Jus
tice Prlndevllle tomorrow morning for a
hearing. It Is said that the prosecution
will ask for a continuance of 10 days,
that the police may have more time for an
Investigation. This was admitted tonight
by Captain Colleran.
"I am not prepared to say that a con
spiracy io kill' President McKlnley was
formed In Chicago," he said. "The evi
dence" in our possession has been turned
over to the law department, and while
we are ready to begin the hearing to
morrow, it is possible that the City Pro
secutor may want more time. In that
event we will ask for a continuance."
Extends to Cincinnati.
CINCINNATI, Sep, 8 The ramification
of the band of anarchists which Is sup
posed to have been responsible for the
commission of the terrible tragedy at
Buffalo, Friday, Is believed to extend in
to this city. The local police have re

the Federal Secret Service Department,
requesting the arrest here of E. Laux,

Pennsylvania Anarchists Celebrate.'-

Hollow, a mining hamlet across the
Youghlogheny River from Buena Vista.
Beer, whisky, speeches, songs and praises
for Czolgosz were the order of the day.
This Is one of the largest anarchist
groups In the country. It was started and
led by Garcia Ciamcavllla, who now

CHICAGO. Sept. 8. Two thousand mem

NIAGARA. FALLS, N. Y Sept 8. Ow
ing to the illumination of Niagara Falls
by gigantic searchlights, which allows
visitors to see the great natural wonder
at night, the falJs has proved itself one
of the successful adjuncts to the Pan
American Exposition. It was 3tated today
that probably more visitors had seen
the falls since the exposition opened than
at any equal period before. This has
been due to the Illumination, which per
mits a good view at night and thousands
of people whose time has been limited
have taken advantage of the opportunity.
The experiments to show the falls at
night were begun last March by the Mich
