Conceded to Have the Larsest Rold Morning Circulation Established 1870 COLONEL UP, IS LIVELY AS A 'BULL DOG' SPENDS SOME TIME IN CHAIR SITTING BY AN OPEN S WINDOW. TALKS OF THE SHOOTING Expects to Lmv On Monday For Homo and to Return to Stump Week After Next - Bears No Bitterness Toward Assailant. .chicmro. Oct. IS. Colonel Roose velt's condition was so satisfactory to- i night that It was announced at It o'clock that the usuaJ night bul etins of the physicians would not be lsaued-- The passage of the day brought to an ; end the jerlod within which symptoms of blood poisoning were to be looked for. ! Cplone Roosevelt's condition was rlrtually unchanged throughout the Say with no indications of the de-ve'ojment of sepis, the one thins most feared. There still remains the posFlMlity of complications in the thape cf tetanus, pneumonia pr pluer-lsy. I The first visible Impressions uf Colonel Roosevelt on the night he ws shot' In Milwaukee were related tonight from the colonel's own lips. Apparently well on the way toward recovery he was permitted to en-Joy a greater degree of" freedom, and for the first time he gave an account of the happenings of the few hours ter the bullet found its mark. The colonel said that on Monday he expected to leave for Oyster Bay aid hoped to be back In the campai?, malting speeches again, week aftr next. "I feel a lively as a bulldog." said the colonel, by way of preface. He vas witting In a huge leather chair by a window In Mrs. ,Rooevelt's room, adjoining his own. lie was wrapped in a blue bath robe of Turkish toweling, with a steamer rug thrown over his reet to protect him from the autumn breese which was borne in through the open window. What seemed to Impress Colonel Roosevelt most strongly was not lh shooting Itself he seemed to accept Jhat as a thing of the past to be dl. missed once it is ovef but rather his hour on the stage of the Milwaukee auditorium when he was speaking with a bullet In his side. But he insisted that to make the speech was only what any other man would have done under 'he circumstances. Nothing, Ho Says. "It was nothing nothing." he sail. "I felt a little pain but it was not severe. When I stretched out my am. oi reached for my manuscript It madJ tne gasp a bit, but that was alL "It was quite amusing," he went on, ''when I reached for my manuscript to see that It had a hole In. It from tne bullet: and there was a hole in .Ty epectaele case, 'oo." The cuSoiie! chuckled as he recalled the urpie ue hau felt at his discovery. "Amusing, did you say, colonel?" asked one of his hearers. Well." he Qualified, "It was interesting." Colonel Roosevelt showed no Indication that he had fit the fear of death. He said he had no means of knowing, as he delivered the speech tits had promised to make, whether he wit wounded fatally, but accepted as a matter of course that he should go on until he had finished. If his strength heid out." But when It was all over, and be had turned away, to go to the hospital, he said, he found It difficult to ke.p his temper when half a doz.-n men scrambled over the edge of the P'.atform and asked hUn to shake hands. x "They wanted to shake hands," ho said, as though it still surprised him. Didn't they know that it is Impossible for a man who has Just been shot to shake hands with genuine cordiality?"' Does Not Mention Schrank. Of the shooting Itself, Colonel R0044-velt had little to say. Not once did he mention the name of John Schrank, h'.a assailant. He talked In an unemotloual way of being- si. t, as though he was discussing the ease of a man whom he was not acquainted. He sal 1 he bore no bitterness or rancor. In a dispassionate way Colonel Roosevelt spoke of his present condition and speculated upon the chance that he would hae blood poisoning or come other serious complication. The physicians thought that he w-s THE VEATHER Forecast: Rain Saturday; Sunday fair, colder, moderate south to west winds.

Is ooe of Kereral physicians who hare been called to attend Colonel Roosevelt. Dr. A. E. Lambert and Dr. John A.

"Isn't it a curious thing." he said, "that a little spf' he placed his thumb near the tip of his forefinger to Indicate how small a spot he meant "can become Infected and set the whole thing back?" Then, he said, there was the possibility, the physicians had told him, that pleurisy or pneumonia might deve'op. Dr. Alexander Lamfcer. he salrt. haJ spoken of returning to New York today but hi associates asked him to remain, because they felt that ail danger wa not past. The colonel said tlxit he felt no pain at present. As he talked he moved his arm freely, although he was careful not to move hla body. He punctuated hi remarks with gestures, but they were not the same vigorous gerture which he" Is wont to make. Broken Rib Troubles Him The colonel still had trouble with hit broken rib, he raid. "If I can get that ri knit so that the edges hold," he said, "and It doesn't pain me to take a deep breath, I hope to rrake some speeches the week after next." As his thoughts turned to the campaign. Colonel Roosevelt's manner changed. Although he had been cautioned not to forget that he was far from a well man and to guard against excitement, his face flushed and his gestures -became more vigorous. "They'll have to be short speeches at first, I suppose," he etild, "but I'll make some good ones." The colonel paused for a moment He-set his Jaw hard and clinched, his fist fur the only time during the interview. "I ask no quarter," he said. "It is gmufing to uee the predicament of Governor Marshall," he added with a laugh. "The governor has been making his campaign on the assertion that I was not at Fan Juan Hill. Thla mar stagger him., but in "a. week he will discover that I wag not ohot at all. and tht. anyway. It was bird shot, and that it hit another man instead of me and finally that I ws in 0h-kosh that night." Wants Week of Campaigning Colonel Roosevelt expected, he said, to bring the campaign to a clos Just as though he had not been shot. Ho hop-d he would be able to put In a week of c-impalgnlng and "say a few things," although he might be unable to travel as he had been doing, nuk- I ing sometimes a dozen speeches In a day. His physician told him that prab-abiy he could leave for Oyster By on Monday or Tuesday, and the colonel at once made up his mind that he would go on the earliest train on Monday which would suit his purposes. i Iepite his confidence that he wl j fce back in the fight the we-k after net. the colonel has not yet receive! j sen , rani f tht h will be able to 1 make a single speech.

Oct. 18. Jack Sullivan, I "Kins of the Newsfboys,." Indicted with J the four piunmen for the murder of i Herman Rosenthal, tried to unfold on j the -wltnefs stand at today's session of Police Lieutenant Becker's trial his version of an alleged conspiracy by mmblers to kill Rosenthal an-3 "frame up" Becker for the murder. Through him the defense planned to go tar In j providing Its contention that Becker had nothing to do with the murder but was himself the victim of a conspiracy. But much of Sullivan's story wa untojd. That part which Justice Goff admitted was based upon testimony already given by Rose. WeUber, Vallori and Scheppat Bulllvan not only denied portions of their testimony but declared that after the murder Wetobei nd Rose told him they were golnfr to "frame Becker and turn him over to the district attorney." They told Pullivan, according to his testimony, that they "would frame Becker, Waldo or the mayor." If necessary to save their owri lives. Fulilvan became petulant when Justice Ooff narrowed his testimony to contradictions of previous witnesses. A rain and again he begged the court to "jrive me ten minutes to explain this tbinsr." Once he a?ked for a chance, "not only for my sake, ibut for God's sake." Whitman Grilled Pistrict Attorney Whitman, Beck-r-m firos'-cutor. was virtually forced on the stand a witness for the defense Immediately before Pulllvnn had 'testified. Mr. Whitman said he had made stipulations with Roue, Wetber, Val-lon end Fcheppa, the state'a chif witnesses against Becker (before they agreed to turn state's evidence.. Th meat of these stipulation was not disclosed, but Mr." "Whitman, agreeing to produce them In court swore that he had not promised the four Immunity. Former District Attorney Jerome and Police Commissioner Wal3o preceded Mr. Whitman but Mr. Jerome . was allowed to anfwer only one question. Commissioner Waldo testifl' that he and not Becker, had ordere.l a policeman stationed In Rosenthal's gambling place after Becker hid raided It.

For the first time Bin0 ifn in vt i pa t inn te trrt n the t senate campaign fund committee today secured a copy of a list of contributors I to the much disputed 1904 Republican j campaign lund. turner Dover, wnOi.y woman. They lert tne court room was secretary of tne 1904 Republican commKtee, put the' list la evidence, saying it had been copied from the private memorandum book of the late Cornelius N. Bliss, treasurer of he committee. He told the Investigators he believed that in many instances the list was Inaccurate and ambiguous, owing to typographical errors. It totalled J2.280.018, and showed practically all of the contributions to the 1901 fund which have been mentioned in the committee's investigation. The list credited J. P. Morgan & Co. with two contributions, one of, $100,000 and one of $50,000. A contribution of $100,000 appeared on the list from "H. H. R." and "J. D. V." Mr. Dover toil the committee he supposed the 'IL H. R." stood for II. II. Rogers; of tha Standard Oil company, and that the "J. 1).

Several: of these contributors have been men- j tioned before the committee as contrib- utlng to the so-called Harrlman fund of about $240,000, The committee was given a start when Medill McCormick, appearing as the first witness of the day, presented a statement in the course of which he referred to "character assassins and liars like Mr. Hllles men who. by their falsehoods Incite weak-minded men to actual assassination." Several members of the committee made violent protest against this language and It was finally ex purged frot the records. Mr. McCormick testlfb-d to contributing about $18,000 to the Roosevelt pre-conventlon campaign In Illinois. Chauncey Dewey, who was associated with him in the eampal;i., accounted for the expenditure of the Illlnots fund. The committee tried In vain to gt any Information as to campaign coi-tributions from Colonel George Harvey, of Harper's Weekly. He said that he knew absolutely nothing of funis collected, or of attempts to colleot funds or of offers of funds to the Wilson pre-conventlon campaign. A gruelling cross-examination by Senator Oliver failed to shake this statement or to elicit any statement regarding th much discussed Harvey-Wilson-Thomas F.

Immediately that he was freed on his seocond trial from charges that he murdered his wife, Allison M. MacFarland attempted late today to, marry Florence Bromley, the Philadelphia, woman who had figured in his case as author of affectionate letters to him signed 1 "Bunny." McFarland's plans were up-! set by a mere technicality. The cou ple will be married later. Florence Bromley, who was- Mac-Farland's former stenographer, is a divorcee. It was her letters to MacFarland which the prosecution preset, ted as showing MacFarland's motive for the alleged poisoning of his v.ife. The young woman was In court t testify In MacFarland's behalf, but his counsel decided not to call her.

Pittsburgh. Pa.. Oct. 18. Wet weather campaigning brought Governor Woodrow Wilson a series of merry Incidents today as he traveled through West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. Only at Pittsburgh tonight did he speak indoors, but throughout the ; day the Democratic nominee faced a . . , f mkrn9. underneath which "I have been paid a splendid compliment," he told the crowd. "I have appeared to you by way of the Jail, but I escaped incarceration; I think onw of my friends had a writ of habeas corpus which enabled me to be here." The governor found a big turnout everywhere notwithstanding the drizzls of rain which fell most of the day. The nominee fovered a series of subjects In his speeches. At Wheeling htf was loudly applauded whon- he said he would not discuss the third party while Colonel Roosevelt was in the hospital, He began to discuss the trusts and. monopolies, but stopped short Spares Third Party, "I am a little hampered." he said, "in discussing this part of the question, because I have denied myself the privilege at present of discussing anything that concerns the third party. As Ions as Mr. Roosevelt Is confined to the hospital in Chicago I shall have nothing to say about the third party. But I want to say this about the Democratic party program: The thing that has created the trusts, that has created the monopoly Is unrerulated, unfair competition. If we can only bring It about that newcomers shall have a free field, then we can take care of these gentlemen in the trusts, because then the most Intelligent competitor will fet the market, and the little man can grow big Instead of making himself big by the legislation of congress and by special favors from the government." The wildest and most sustained demonstration that Governor Wilson ha had In his campaign greeted him at Duquesne garden. When he rose to speak there were great cheers, but the applause was almost continuous throughout the speech of 45 minutes. The governor's address was a series of short sentences and epigrams whi;h the enthusiastic crowd constantly punctuated with applause. Once '.he crowd rose in the middle of the speech and began a demonstration that lasted for several minutes. BEGIN MAYOR LUNN'S TRIAL j Little Falls,, N. Y Oct. 18.

Mr. Frey though councils should not by its action force the railroad to moe its warehouses beyond the city limits !to thc Fetrow farm, as had been lntl- i mated would be done, because the re- suit would be added expense and Inconvenience to shippers. The erection of the overhead bridge, he believed, was what was principally desired by the Seventh ward people. Ke thought 1 thev would be satisfied without thfl Water street paving being made a pari of the ordinance. It was his proposition to strike out the amendment providing for the paving of Water street at the expense of the company and substitute one providing for the paving between the tracks and 18 inches UUID1UC LUC ( I Ql.
