INDICATIONS FAVOR A SPEEDY
Doctors Hopeful But Danger Point
Will riot be Fully Passed
Chicago. After a day of ceaseless
vigil, Colonel Roosevelt's physicians
Wednesday night could say no more
than that his condition was virtually
unchanged. Indications, they said,
favored tho speedy recovery of the
ex-presldent from the effects of tho
bullet which struck him down In. Mil
waukee on Monday night. A decrease
in temperature and pulse lato in tho
day, however, made his condition for
the time being somewhat less favora
ble. The fact that a rib was fractured,
which was not disclosed until Wednes
day and that the probable location of
the bullet has not yet been developed
added to the feeling of uncertainty.
Not until the end of the week, it all
goes well, will the physicians be pre
pared to say that their patient is iut
of danger. Tho Intervening period will
be required to determine whether
blood poisoning or other complications
are to be feared.
Chicago. Theodore floosevelt was
not merely superficially wounded by
the tullet fired Into his breast In Mil
waukee by John Schrank. After an
examination and consultation the phy
sicians definitely. described the injury
as "a serious wound In the chest," and
not "a mere fleBh wound."
The physicians asserted, however,
that it is not now necessary to probe
for or move the bullet. Even this
action was thought undesirable and
the patient will be kept as "aim as
his nature will allow for a few days.
The bullet, aa shown by the X-ray
photographs brought from Milwaukee
by Dr. J. D. Jannsen and corroborated
by others taken in Mercy hospital,
lies not far from the breast bone on
the right side, and probably five inches
below the collar bone. The missile
did not get inside the ribs, but
ploughed upward and inward for a
distance of some five Inches from
where it entered.
The colonel's concern Is not appar
ently for himself, but for those whom
ho feared might be too fearful for his
condition. Ho read a few of the hun
dreds of telegrams that poured into his
room, and was particularly delighted
with several from men 'of noto whom
