Mi n out of danger is the verdict of
each of them. Not one of them will
risk li is professional reputation with
a st : uent that the President will
live. All thay will say is that with
. ry .hour the danger of complica
tions from peritonitis or blood-poisoning
decreases. Dr. Mcburnuy, the
most eminent of the physicians in
attendance, expresses the opinion
that if the improvement continues
it will be a week yet before the Presi
dent i be pronounced out of dan
ger and convalescent. And some of
his colleagues, like Dr. Mann, place
the limit of danger still farther away.
The fiar of peritonitis, It can be said
positively, has well-nigh disappeared.

There Will Be No Crisis.
The water, which has been given
.iretofore cold, did not appear to
agree with him, and since Sunday
night very hot water has been taken
into the stomach through the mouth
with splendid results. His bowels
moved freely during the day, and this
also was considered an excellent
symptom. If he continues to improve
It will be gradually. If he should grow
worse the change in that direction also
will be slow. This Is the opinion of
r. Mann. There will bo no crisis. If.
he arrives at convalescence Dr. Park
expresses the opinion that It will be '
three weeks before It will be safe to j
move him. It is expected that the in
terlor wounds will heal first. The su
tures of the lacerated tissue were
made so soon after the bullet passed
that they are probably healing rapid

The extreme optimism of the vice

physicians. So relieved are Secretary
Gage and Attorney General Knox at

Washington last night, feeling strong

with the assurance of the physicians
that it a change for the worse should
come it would be gradual, and that
they would have .miuple time to re

there was also a public reason why he

Roosevelt's Delicate Position.
Vice President Rooseve't has occu
pied n peculiarly delicate and trying,
position since the event which threat
ened the President's life, but be has
borne himself throughout this ordeal
in such a manner as to win the admira
tion and respect ! all. It has. more
over, added a new bond between the,
vice resident and lliose Intimately as
sociated with the President, and the
latter are warmest In their expressions
Of the manner In which he has met
every requirement of t ho situation.
Not for a moment has he permitted
the idea to be entertained that there
was need for considering the constitu
tional disability of the President and
the exercise of executive functions
which this would Impose on him. On
the contrary. Mr. Roosevelt has been
one of the most positive In the con
viction that the President would re
cover. During the long period of Garfield's
illness nice distinctions arose as to
what constituted the disability of the
President within the meaning of the
constitution, whether when the physi
cal facultb s were benumbed, while the
mental fai ultles were unimpaired,
there was any disability as meant by
the constitution. But fortunately there
has been no such Issue presented on j
tliis occasion, ami tne vice president
himself has been primarily responsi
ble for the avoidance of any thought
of the temporary exercise of executive
functions by him, Nor has there been
any occasion for the exercise of ex
ecutive authority for such minor rou
tine matter ns it comes can readily I
be left until the present emergency
has passed. Twice during the day and
again last evening the vice president
has called at the Milburn residence
to Inquire as to the President's con
dition. During th l afternoon call he
met several officers and Senator
Hanna and spent a short time with
them in informal discussion. On the
streets Mr. Roosevelt has been a cen
ter of respectful attention, but he has
met this with dignity and composure.
Despite senseless remarks that he was
going about guarded by secret service
men, he has positively declined to
have anything like a guard near him
One of his remarks yesterday, in
speaking to two laborers, who greeted
him, struck a popular chord. They
bad suggested that he might be afraid
to be stopped.
"No, indeed," he replied. "You men
are our protection, and the foul deed
of Friday will only mako you more
vigorous In protecting those whom
you elect to office."

pression to the worldwide solicitude
over the President, in a message

Buffalo. Sept. 7 President McKin
ley was shot and seriously wounded oy
a would-be assassin while holding a
reception In the temple of music at
the Pan-American Exposition a few
minutes after 4 o'clock yesterday after
neon. One shot took 'effect in the
right bres. it, '.he other In the abdomen.
The flrst is not of a serious nature,
and the bullet has been extracted. The
latter pierced the abdominal wall and
has not been located.
It was a few moments after 4 p. m.
while President McKinley was holding
a public reception In the great Temple
of Music on the Pan-American grounds
that the cowardly attack was made,
with what success time alone can tell.
The President, though well guarded
by Vnlted States special service de
tectives, was fully expohed to such
an attack as occurred. He stood at

and then fight their way out in the
good-natured mob that every minute
swelled and multiplied at the points
ofSkngress and egress to the building
The President was In a cheerful mood
and was enjoying to the full the hear
ty evidences of good will which every

stood John G. Milburn, of Buffalo, the
president of the Pan-American Expo
sition, chatting with the President and
Introducing to him especially persons
of note who approached. Upon the
President's left stood Mr. Cortelyou.
It was shortly after 4 p. m., when
one of the throng which surrounded
the presidential party, a medium-sized
man of ordinary appoarance. and plain
ly dressed in black, approached as if
to greet the President.
Sharp Crack of the Revolver.
President McKlnley smiled, bowed
and extended his hand in that spirit
of geniality the American people so
well know, when suddenly tho sharp
crack of a revolver rang out loud nnd
clear above the hum of voices, the
shuffling of myriad feet and vibrating
waves of applause that ever and anon
swept here and there over the assem

he was borne to the ground, his wea

strong arms pinioned him down.

to a chair and seated himself, at the
same time removing his hat and bow

In an instant Secretary Cortelyou

Nevi rtheless his outer garments
were hastily loosened, and when a
trickling stream of crimson was seen
to wind its way down his breast,
spreading Its tell-tale stain over the
white surface of the linen, their worst
fears were confirmed.
The President's assailant in the
meantime had been hustled to the rear
of the buildtttg by Exposition guards,
where he was held while the building
was cleared, and later he was turned
over to Superintendent Hull, of the
Buffalo police department, who took
the prisoner to No. 1C police station,
and afterward to police headquarters.
As Boon as the crowd in the temple of
music had been dispersed sufficiently
the President was removed In the au
