The slight alarm which was felt when
the afternoon bulletin appeared was
Increased when the physicians asscni
blid for their evening consultation
about an hour earlier than usual. The
rlueiin.ss of the morning was sne
er. i.i by apprehension and a dremy
l i in whnh began to fall added to the
gloomy feeling which prevailed. The
bulletin whs personally delivered to
the member" of the press by Secretary
'.Vi t lxi.u, and the frankness with
jxhlih the physicians announced that
the president's londitlon was not so
good, disquieting as It was, was a re
lief. U was felt to he additional proof
that nothing who being concealed. It
x as explained seinl-ofllcially to the As
Fociated Press that the trouble which
existed xvns due to the fact that the
food taken this morning had not agreed
'Mlh the president. It had not been
disposed of and the rise In his pulse
was atlributcd to that fact. It was
su.iti'l quite positively that the con
Milting phytdelans do not believe that
the failure to digest the fond was duo
lo the conditions of the wounds In the
Moliiai h. which were believed to be
pi actually healed and so pronounced
by Dr. Mcliurney and his assistants.
That the food would not agree with
tile patient could not have been an
ticipated, so It was stated, but as
soon as It was found that It had not,
the administration of food by the
Motitli xxas discontinued. The problem
vhleh now confronts the phjslcluns Is
to dispose of this undigested food In
the sioniach. Pi .Mann, xtho Is con
sidered the chief surgeon In the ab
sence of Dr. .McHurney, Is eoniident
that the undigested food will pass
away during the night and that tho
T resident will he better In the morn
ing. The fatigue of the president
noted In the afternoon bulletin contin
ued during the evening and several
times the president muiiuured:
"I am so tiled, 1 am so tired."
Dr. Stockton Called.
Dr. Charles n. Stockton, who has
a tine reputation ns a general practi
tioner here, was called In at the even
ing conference. The pioblem now Is
one for the physicians rather tlinn
the surgeons and the advice and coun
sel of Dr. Stockton wns considered ad
visable. After the bulletin was Is
sued two of tho physicians slipped
away through the side entiame, thus
escaping tho newspaper men. It was
understood that T)r. .Mann and Dr.
Stockton remained at the Mllburn
Secretaries Wilson and Hitchcock
reached the Mllburn houso at 9.,".
They seemed anxious for personal as
surances as to the condition of the
president and when they left tlitlr
uinliiges hurried Into the house.
Tho spirits of the Utile coterie which
Secretaries Hitchcock and Wilson
Joined In the drawing roonof the M.
burn house xvern visibly depressed, al
though the assurances of Dr. Mann
thut tho president's condition would be
better In the morning did something
toward offsotlnrc the apprehension they
could not conceal.
At fi.15 o'elmk Mr. and Mrs. Abner
McKlnley mid Dr. ami Mrs. llaer, who
Bedside of the!
had arrived shortly after s. o'clock,
left the house. Mr. McKlnley assist
ed his family to a carriage and re
turned to the house.
"Is there anything you care to say
as to the condition of the president'.'"
he was asked.
"Nothing, nothing," he replied, and
hurried along towaid the limine. He
seemed UtiNlous to get balk to the
house wheie his brother li y.

Hutfalo. hpt. 1L'. Six days have
now elapsed since the president was
slid, and this afternoon he com
plaint d somewhat of fatigue. That
was the only disquieting word which
i line fioni the sick loom during the
day. The president hail had a rest
lul night and th beef Juice which the
doctors gave him yesterday had been
iillshe.l so keenly that this morning
hr was given solid food for the (list
time. He was bathed and then en
joyed a, breakfasit of chicken broth,
tm.st and totrt. He felt so good ifter
this somewhat substantial meal that
In- asked for a mild cigar. Dr. Mc-
Ilutney, the dean of the corps of at
tending physicians and surgeons, xas
thoroughly satlslled with the patient's
ci million and went to New York at 1
o'clock to look after some urgent pri
ate affairs, Ills Intention Is to iv
tuin In a few days. Meantime he will
ktt-p In constant touch with the Mil
burn house and he prepared to come
back at short notice. Secretary Itoot
left on the same train. A slight re
action, boucxer, followed the buoyan
cy of the morning. The president
complained of being tired. The at
tending plixslclmis at tile afternoon
consultation, true to their pronils- to
take the public into their conlldenee,
chronicled this fact with scrupulous
t-aie, hut they displayed no alarm. The
doctois said tho president's restless
ness was only natural and what might
be expeted. "Hesldes, Ids breakfast
did not specally agree with him." said
"The president is feeling the stiain
of his long siege xvithout food, no
nourishment at all having been admin
tftered during the flr.u three days, and
lying day and night practically In the
t-ame position Is fatiguing and hard
lor even the most emplary patient to
bear without murmuring.''
"The manifold responsibilities of the
chief magistracy for four years don't
exactly fit a man for such an orde.il as
this, .-aid one ol those closest to him
tonight The doctors ure directing
their energies toward building up the
piesldent's stiengtli. The Interior
x ninds were pronounced, healed and
no long ns no complications arise tho
edges of the outer wound will gradu
ally heal by granulation. Bringing up
the Reneral condition of the patient is
therefore of prlmo importance. The
qeatitltv of beef Julco given has been
doubled and the president Is now get-
log an ounce every hour.
The tone of the messages still pour
ing Into th Mllburn house from all
over the world has changed from one
of sympathy and condolence to one of
eonmiitulntlon. showing the prevalence.
i very wluie in the conviction that the
attempt on tho 'president" llfo lias
Postmaster General Smith returned
to Washington tonight The other two
ruliltiet olllcees, Seeietnrlcs Hitchcock
mid Wilson, have made no plans to
return. They will retunln at lenst wv
enil days longer. The district attor
ney here announced puhlkly this af
ternoon that he had no evidence
against Kinma rioldtnnn, and that
unless some turns up no requisition
upon the state of Illinois would lie
made for her. This does not Indicate
that the bottom has dropped out of
the eonspliaey. It simply means that
no evident e lias yet been ueaured to
connect iior xxith the rime. If she
Is released she will be l;c t undei the
closest surveillance and It will he easy
for the authorities to place their hands
upon her If she is wanted later. There
is a hope here, however, that some
way will be found to hold her at least
until Investigations now In progress
by the secret srvlee people In all the
principal cities where anarchist or
ganizations exist are completed,
She was arrested wholly upon the
responsibility of the Chicago police,
under the general order sent out by
Superintendent null to apprehend nil
persons who might have knowledge of
the attempted assassination. While no
evldeuro has been found against the
tioldman woman the government Is
satisfied that Czolgosz crossed her path
and in due titn, It is believed, what
ever connection, if any. I here was be
tween them will be discovered. The
secret service men will trace f'xnlgosz's
whereabouts back step by step. One
of the things which Is c'n'lred Is a
lomplet" report if the lectures the
president's assailant said Inspired him
to commit the deed.

Naval Officers Who Ave Interested
in tho Trial At the Opening Ad

bility as a Member of the Court.
The Challenge Is Sustained.
Ily Kxelmlte Wire from The xmoelated Pre.
Washington, Sept. 12. Within three
hours from the time of convening the
Schley court of inquiry t.iday It xvns
announced thnt Hear Admiral Unwlson
was disqualified from r.ei'vlr.g as a
member of the court in:l v..,s excused
f i om further duty. This brought tho
proceedltiRs to an nbt'tipl ti-iiulnation
and caused a temporary adjournment
of the court tn o: dr to permit the
navy department to de;,'nnip an otll
cer to sueccfil Admlnil Hoxvison. No
further sesslo'i Is probable in. til next
week. It had ben r::pecied that lit
tle nlliclal btisines would be accom
plished on the opening day, and the
prompt decision as to Admiral Howl
son came somewhat as a surprise.
Prior to the court's convening a good
sized crowd assembled at the Wash
ington navy yard, where the court
meets, to xvltness the coming nf the
prominent nnval otllcers who xvere to
take part In the proceedings.
They came un-unifornied and un
heralded and until the full dress uni
forms had been donned at quarters
Inside the yard for the actual sessions
of the court theie xvns little to lend
Interest to the occasion. Admiral
Dewey and Admiral Schley naturally
xvere the premier figures In popular
Interest. The latter had about him a
distinguished party of counsel. Includ
ing Hon. Jore Wilson, Attorney Gen
eral Isidore Haynor. of Maryland, and
Captain Jami s P.trker.wlth .Mr. Teague
acting as advisory counsel. The Her
man naval attache, Captain Ttobeur
Paschwlt., occupied one of the seats
In the public area and the nutnher
of wives ot naval olllcers present xvns
A salute of seventeen guns in honor
of the admiral of the navy marked the
opeiu'ng of the proceedings at I o'clock.
'I he usual formalities on the opening
of n court xvere transacted with des
petch. The tlrst skirmish xxas opened
by Admiral Schley rising from his
seat and speaking In strong voice,
calmly and deliberately challenging
Admiral Howlson's eligibility as a
members of the court. Three xvlt
nesses were brought forward In sup
port nf this challenge, namely, Mr.
Kiancls S. Frost, Mr. William K. Spon
and Mr. Foster Nlcholls. Thy gave
very positive testimony as to expres
sions they had heard Admiral Howl
son make favorable to Admiral Samp
son and unfavorable to Admiral
Schley. Mr. Frost testified to a state
nunt Admiral Hoxvison had made to
him at Huston while the witness was
sel.lng news as a reporter. Mr. Spon
lo'd of remarks made xvhlle he and
the admiral were journeying back to
thl country from Kurop" on a trans
Atlantic steamer, and Mr. Nlcholls'
conxt rsatlnn occurred during: a busi
ness call at Admiral Howlson's pri
vate residence nt Yonkers, N. Y.
On concluding this testimony, tin
quistlon arose whether Admiral Howl
sen xvotild Join issue xvlth the state
ments made by the xvltnesses or xvotild
rest mi his privilege to withhold any
answer until he chos? to submit It.
The admiral met the Issue by turning
at once, to Admiral Pewey and an
nouncing that he xvotild make a writ
of lejoliider to the statements nf the
three witnesses. This rejoinder he
pifpaicd very speedily. Willie con
ceding the accuracy of some points in
the exldence. It threw considerable
dcubt on other points and disclaimed
any recollection of the talks said to
have taken place on the trans-Atlan-t!c
It hub not sufficient, however, to
(oitntcwict the very direct testimony
given by the three xv I messes, and,
moreoxcr, the admiral -himself. In con
cluding his statement, Indicated plain
ly that he had no desire to remain on
tho court and xvns there simply lu
obedience to orders. He even appealed
to his associates on the court to de
i ide all doubtful questions as to his
ilislblllt:' in favor of Admiral Schley.
Hefore submitting the challenge to
the determination of the court, Mr.
Uaynor cross-examined Admiral Hoxv
ison very minutely as to his private
sentiments towards Admiral Sampson
and Admiral Schley nnd dex-eloped that
Admiral Hoxvison had expressed cer
tain dellnlto convictions as to Admiral
Sampson's retention of authority and
responsibility, even while he xvas ah
sent temporarily fiom the fleet nt San
tiago. The chullengo then xvas submit
ted to the court which, under the clr-
cumstanccs, xvas narrowed to Admiral
Dewey and Hear Admiral lleulinm to
pass upon. After hardly more than
llfteen minutes spent In letlrement to
the consultation room of the court
Admiral Dewey In lolly announced that
the court sustained the challenge and
that Admiral llowlson would bo ex

under at times duriug the squalls. She
had gone about and eased sheet to

Olralda'.s captain, evidently not real

the in ess tug I'nlty under her lee.
When he cleared the latter, the (Ji

to gybe the yacht. The men jumped
for the port preventer bacit stays to
slacken them. The mnln boom xvas

B Kiclwlre Wirt from The AaweUted Trm.
Pittsburg, Sept. 12. Tho air xvns
again full of rumors today that tho
stilke had been settled. The absence
of President Shaffer from Amalgamat
ed headquarters nil day up to 4 p. in.
lent color to the report. Hy many Mr.
Shaffer was supposed to bo In New
Schwab, and others, xvero convinced
Schwab and others xvero convinced
that h xvas In conference xvlth the
American Tlnplate olllrlals discussing
a proposition to call tho strlko off so
far as that compnny xvas concerned.
When President Shaffer llnnlly ap
peared at headquarters he dispelled all
hopes by saying thero xvns no chango
In the situation. Immediately after
arriving at the ofllce Mr. Shaffer called
the national otllcers to his room for
a conference xthlch lasted forty min
utes. It was Impossible to learn what
the talk xvas about as none of the
participants xvould talk.
An Associated Press representative
captured the president ns he xvas about
to board a car for home. In reply to
questions, Mr. Shaffer said:
"There has been no conference xvlth
the steel people today as has been
reported. I have not been to New
York and I inn not going there, nor am
I going to Youngstown." This latter
xxas said In answer to the report that
the Youngstown strike! h bad held a
meeting tills afternoon and had tele
graphed President Shaffe.- asking him
to nltcntlMin adjourned meeting to
night. He said he knew of no meet
ing at Youugstoxvn. In explanation of
his absence from his oir.ee. all day
President Shaffer said:
"I xvas at home until very late. I
xvas not feeling very xvell nnd did not
come down town. That accounts for
Mr. Shaffer said ho bad not heard
of any developments today nnd re
peated the assertion thai he xvas going
home to rest and xvould not leave tho
No Further Propositions.
It was- said at Amalgamated head
quartrts today that the steel combine
has refused to entertain any further
p:opcfltions of settlement from tho
Amalgamated as-soclatlon. Thls xvould
ieeni to strengthen the report from
Ntxv York that tho situation is now
lu Ji'st the same shapo that it xvas
hefore the first conference at Olevc
li.nd. In the bands of tho constituents
of the company for settlement; that
Mr. Schxvnb and Mr. Morgan have
turned the matter over to tho local
olliclals nml that If nnythlng Is dono
It must be done hy them and not
through the otllcers.
With drawn rovolx'ors, two officers,
ono a coal and Iron policeman, tho
other said to be a regular officer on
the South Side police force, sat on tho
top i eat of a cab and guarded six non
union workmen Into the Monongahela
tin plant on the South Side this) after
non. A great crowd of strikers and
sympathizers pursued the cab to and
from the mill and on tha return trip
loth oillcers once moro drew their
guns, and at Fourteenth and Carson
street, one shot was tired from tho
tib. Fortunately no one was hit.
Several persons attempted to catch
the horses by tho bridles, nnd It was
then the shot xvai tired. Oreat con
ftiilon followed and tho olllcers got
away without further trouble.
Nine new men xvere taken Into tho
Snr tin mill today, without any In
tel I'ei'cnce. The situation at all of tho
other plants remains unchanged.
The (Ires will be lighted tomorroxv
morning under the boilers of tho Shen

and preparations will bo nmdo for the
starting of the 'plant next Monday
morning. Tho striking1 steel xvorkeis
remain firm in their determination tc
not return to work.
