H Is a measure much harped upon and ninch heral(!ed as relief froui oil cial dereliction of liny kind, sort or d >scripilon. If any person <'Iocted to a u)unicl|)al office fails to conduct the >lllce in a • manner, tlrat clearly shows his cotu- petentcy; li' ihe'olIU-Ial is lerelici in his duties in anv manner whatsoever, then on petition slRni'd by a certain per cent of the electorate, in election niiiv lie held: at wWch the .ssty» shall . be whether the linfunibent siihjoct to the nvall shall or Vhall not be oiuted and the recall candidate for election be plai'ed in kig stead. ..Mayur HollinKer said this inornlnK: - that th<- people r-ceme-d to fa\or this measure: that he bclli'vod It t o be a - Kood !nw In iniiny rosiierts and that be felt, if the Romiiuent Is for the en- ac'tiiient of such a law. It sIuuiW In- nassed. Another reform ^vhicll wa.'!, pr(>ji'ct- . ed at the Salinn nn'otinc is the \'nact- ment of a law whidi wijl permit cities <.f the se;.'ond class to vote on the proposition of wheather or not I'ool and billiard halls shall bo permitted , 1o operate. The city oniclals of lola favor this measure. It is ar.iiued that if tlie majority of the peoiilo wants the pool and billiard halls closed, their ^will should lie respected. A third innovation, and one tiiat was approved at the Salina meeting, is the pntposed aOoption cf a law roquirinff voters in cities of the second class to vote for second choice as well as llrst in votiiic for citv officials. It' is probable that the I.eatnie will lM's;in a campaisn in behalf of tltose 'reforms immediately with a view to securing pledges from candidates for the loKislature that they will support t!ie - m-easurcs mentioned. 37 HEAD OF HORSES BURNED OiiTeyville Li\ery Itunird La^t Mtrlil and llic L«ss Wa.x Serions— (•«!» Line I'roperfy.

I dill McCorralck as he left the toloneVa room in the hospital: "Colonel Roosevelt Is still in active diarge of his campaign, though It has been decided, to his regret, that his speaking tour must be abandoned." Chicago, Oct. 15.—About one o'clock this afternoon the physicians.' in charge of Colonel Roosevelt's case began ' another examination of the wound. • Roosevelt's wound is not a mere flesh wound, but Is a serious wound in the chest, said a bulletin issued this afternoon by the physicians at Mercy hospital. The statement was' made in the form of a bulletin which was issued by the doctors after a later examination of the wound. ChlcagOff Oct. 15.—The bullet was still in his breast when Roosevelt was taken to Mercy hospital this morning after a consultation of physicians who ordered a second X-ray exapilnatioh with a view to an immediate operation. After Or. J. H. Murphy saw him he vetoed the plan to let the Colonel rest and hurried him away in ail automobile. The physicians, said j the chief danger Hfjuned possible In blood poisoning. 1 The X-ray examination located the bullet deep in the tissues, a sole dia^ tan6e from the lung apparently. A telegram was Immediately sent to Mrs. Roosevelt which read: "Examination shows no further danger. Res^ pirntlon Is good and pulse normal. The bullet In a safe place. No blood was exi)ectoraled." Roosevelt walked Into the X-ray Voom without assistance, joking those naor him. (By tlie AssoOattd Pre-iBl Chicago, Oct. 15.—An hour after tho. examination Roosevelt "tlropinHl into a peaceful sleep which his physicians said would be very beneficial. The Colonel eagerly anticipated the arrival of his wife and daughter, Ethel, tomorrow, so, as he said, he could personally assure them he was not seriously wounded. It waS planned to have Ulrs. Nicholas Longworth. the Colonel's daughter, visit him this evening. The examination by the doctors and the X-ray pictures showed that the Colonel had a miraculous escape from.! death. The bullet entered above the i upper border of the liver, less than an inch below the lower line of the, lungs. The wound, it is said, prob- ! ably v^oiild have been fatal if the ball . had penetrated either the lung or '• liver. If the bullet had entered the same point on the left side instead of the right, it would have penetrated the heart and caused instant death. Chicago, Oct. 15.—Colonel Theodore Roosevelt wlio was shot by John Schrank. a would-be assassin in Milwaukee last night, lies today in Mercy hospital hero "resting^ easily." Half a dozen of the most noted and skilled surgeons in Chicago, led by Dr. John B. Murphy,, made an X-ray oxumina- tion of the Colonel's wound, and announced that the bullet did not pierce the lung, but had lodged in the chest. They had not planned to operate this morning. Local medical men, after reading the official statement issued by the surgeons attending the former president, were of the opinion that he would be able to leave the hospital within twelve or fifteen days. With the bullet removed, they said, the Col onel would require absolute rest for that period to insore his speedy recovery. A large crowd gathered in front of Mercy hospital, eager for news of the In spite of the Colonel's condition. ^_ _ size, the throng was quiet and noth- CoTonel Roosevelt spoke, for nearly ling but a subdued murinur came from it as messengers hurried back and forth. The doctors refused to answ«r any questions except through authorized channels. Telegrams began pouring in and many w^ere read by the Colonel himself. One from Burt A. Miller, a nephew of President McKinley, read: "You have been wonnded in the same battle for humanity in which my uncl04 Wm. McKinley, lost bis life. May you live to carry forward this righteous war." / . !

Wis.. Oct. 15.—John Sch rank, ('ol. Roosevelt's assailant pleaded guilty to the charge of attempted murder when given his preliminary ar raingment before Judge M. B. Neolen in District Court todoy. Judge .N'eolen held Schrank to the criminil court for trial under bond of $7,."0i>. Tentatively the date for trial is sot for t he November term of courK Schrank was placed" In the custody of Sheriff William A. Arnold, of Milwaukee County, and was imprisoned In the county jaiir He will be held there until his triah is called. Schrank's |)lea of guilty was certified as soon as district attorney Zabel had read the formal charge of the attempted murder. "What is your answer to the charge?•• Judge .Veolen asked. "Cuilty," replied Schrank calmly. AVilwaukee, Wis., Oct. 15.-^^John Schrank, the would-be assassip of Roosevelt, is a curious study. He said he was from New York City. His hands arc small, well formed, and smooth, as though unused to toll. He talks fluently at times, using excellent English, but often stopped ab- rutply and refused to say anoUier word, until his changing mood made him talkative once more. His appearance is that of an intelligent man and his large clear eyes, held steadily upon his intiulsitors, did not , seem like those of an insane person. What ever his state of mind, it was apparent to all who saw him that Schrank was thoroughly In earnest, and felt that it was a matter of high duty for him to kill Theodore Roosevelt. The revolver w^hich John Schrank used In his attempt on Colonel Roosevelt's life Is a deadly one of 38 cali­ bre. It ,18 ugly, large, and shining in its newness. It is of a kind used in the army, and is made to "shoot to kill." Schrank was held on $7500 ball for trial. Judge N. B. Nolan, of the district court, immediately after the arraignment of Schtank, ordered a chemical test of the bullets remaining in the would-be slayer's 'T -evolver. Schrank is about_3(t years old, of German nationality, and gave his address as 370 East 10th street. New York. He said in answer to a question as to why he wanted to murder Colonel Roosevelt, tiwt any man ought to l)e murdered who wanted third term in office for the presidency or otherwise. He said the Colonel had iescaped him a dozen times. ' He had wrtiten on a piece of paper.! the fol- jiotels. his Chisrleston, lowing list of cities and itinerary, September '28:, S. C; Moslcy Honse.

Each team having won three gams, they will play the d»-cldiiig contest of the world's series here tomorrow-. "Smoky Joe" Wood, the Red Sox star pitcher, was driven from the box in the first inning when his delivery w^as touched for seven hits wbJch netted six runs. .\all finished in the box for Boston and was batted freely. The gAme was loosely played In the field on both sidt^^: rho BostoHj Red Sox, needing but a single victory to secure the World's baseball chniiipionshlp. and the New- York Giants, flghtiug still with their backs to the wall to overcome a handicap which required that they win two games, met again at Fenway Park today in thir seventh game of the ser- le.s of 1912. A win for New York to- ilay would tie the standing and make another game necessary. .loe Wood was selected as Boston's pitcher. Wood has pitched the Red Sox into two victories over the Giants. Tesrcau was mentioned as McGraw'a (rhoice. .Matthewson came through l)oth of his battles of the present series with high honors, despite defeats in each. Tcsreau has not lived up to .New York's hopes. Should New York win. Marquard, it is believed. Will be sent Into the final game tomorrow. Boston would then place her hopes on Hugh Bedient the youngster who beat •Matbewson in Saturday's twirling duel. The batting order is unchanged. Cady caught f-or Boston and Meyers for Sew York. • The opening of the game was delayed because the temporary fence In front of the left field bleachers was broken down l»y a crush of the spectators. First lnn;ng. » FIR.ST HALF—Devore was safe on an infield hit which Wagner could not field. Doyle singled to center, Devore i>clng held at second. Devore and Doyle executed a double steal. Wood's pitch to the'plate being low and Cady making nu attempt to throw out either runner.
