Hanna has typhoid fever. The diag
nosis Is confirmed by a complete
blood examination reported this
morning by Dr. Rehrond. The sen
ator rested fairly well last night.
This morning his temperature ls 100
and pulse 82. The above bulletin
was given out by the senator's secre
tary and by DrB. Rixoy and Magru
der at 9:30 this morning.
The official announcement caused
great apprehension among Hanna's
friends, who regard typhoid, for a
man of his age and enfeebled consti
tution, as very serious. The phy
sicians, however, continue to express
confidence. They advised against
sending for the members of his fam
lly this morning.
Mr, Hanna has been on a milk
diet for several days. There is no
ailment of the liver, kidneys and
heart. The malady ls characterized
as a regular typhoid. Roosevelt
walked from tho White House to the
Arlington hotel to make Inquiry.

reported the patient unchanged. It
was decided this morning to send
for Dr. Osier, of Baltimore, tho fa
mous diagnostician who attended

the most discouraging feature Is
Hanna's constant depression.
