exceedingly -hopeful He said to'Mr Alexander: “I feel certain the President will get well This is not 1881 but 1001 and great strides have been made In surgery in the last 20 years” DR MITCHELL’S PRAYER Vice-President Roosevelt arrived at the residence -at 12:45 He walked over from the First Presbyterian Church on Pennsylvania street where he attended service this morning He-wag accompanied by Ansley Wilcox whose guest he Is Representative Alexander anil j Judge Albert Haight entered Immediately alic-r the Vice-President ' The sermon at the First Presbyterian t'hureh where Vice-President Roosevelt was In iiUi-ndnnoe made reforenee to the eiburilty which bud fallen upon llie nation At II close the pnslor Dr S H Mitchell delivered u fervent prayer In the course of which he mild: "Untie l) (bill (he IisaiIm of nil lovers of i Igb I eiitisurNH In slernesl reprobn' bin f the n na ri'lilc fuiy of rcprnlmlo lives anil whip from Ihe temple of public life men who are willing In tetnpniixi with this mndnesH In lily and Hlnie" j After a hymn the entire eungrri:nllnn ! united In singing Ihe National nntliem HIGH HOPES FOR RECOVERY Shortly lifter 1 o'clock Vlrc-I’resl-rtent Roosevelt nnd Senator II an no left the house They stopped on the rurnei to tell tlu newspaper men of the high hopes they had for the President's recovery The Vice-President said with great emphasis that he fell satisfied of the President's recovery and Senator Hanna Interjected the statement that the President's condition considering the circumstances could not be more favorable Complications might arise said the Senator but there were no Indications of them up to the present time Senator Hanna then spoke of the statements that the reports of the physicians were being colored and did not show the President's real condition “It is outrageous that such stories should be circulated' said he "The physicians are giving the facts to the public” At this point Vice-President Roosevelt with great earnestness laid his hand upon the Senator's arm FA VORA BLENESS UNDERS TA TED “Senator let me put it this way” he said "The doctors’ bull with 'a scrupulous und the favorableness of coi pulous understates ns are made atement of ns a scru-he repeated President William McKinley emphatically adding emphasis with hla uplifted gloves “That expresses It well’ said Senator Hanna "Yes" continued Sir Roosevelt "If anything the doctors understate the hopefulness of the situation” Mr - Hanna again assented to this statement He added that It took from 48 to 72 hours for conclusions to be reached of an absolutely conclusive character and no physician pending such a period would state absolutely final conclusions But for the present the doctors were inspired by the sln-cerest effort to give the best Judgment whloh medical science could render' As Mr Roosevelt and Senator Hanna turned to their carriage an attempt was made to photograph the Vice-President but he turned away hurriedly with a "No no’ Indicating that It was not a time for such scenes ROBERT LINCOLN HERE Robert T Lincoln son of President Lincoln and former Secretary of War came from the Milburn house soon after Mr Roosevelt and Senator Hanna retired Mr Lincoln regarded the condition of the patient as altogether favor-- able SECRETARY HAY HEARD FROM this Secretary Hay was heard from morning from Newbury N IL A telegram coming to Chief Clerk Michael of the State Department Who Is here stated that Ine Secretary would leave for Buffalo tomorrow -

there was still danger of suppuration from the bullet— that was the greatest danger he feared This was only his opinion— not from the physicians "The cabinet will remain here at least 24 hours more" he said "We consider it safest to remain together luring this crlMls" JOHN It VAIK FOK AMNKMIlly BKKWKTER N Y Sept 7— The f’utnnrn county Republican eonv-iiilon Uiil'iuel lodny nominated John It Vale or Hrewnler for tin Assembly and J I leruiel I Southard of (’old Killing for I’liunly Judge WILL WAGE WAR IN ALL LANDS National Association of Chiefs of Police Move for International Action WANT BETTER LAWS AND PROMPT ACTION President of Association Sends Out a Letter Advocating a Gathering of Police of All Lands WASHINGTON Sept 8— Maj Richard Sylvester as president of the Na-' tlonal Association of the Chiefs of Police of the United States and Canada yesterday took a decisive step looking to the adoption of a uniform policy throughout the world In dealing with anarchists by addressing a letter to the board of directors of the association requesting their co-operation in bringing the various heads of the police departments of the world together In convention The communication follows: "The National Association of Chiefs of Police of the United States and Canada at the last annual meeting adopted a resolution inviting the heads of foreign police departments to participate in our annual discussions and the distressing calamity witch this country has recently experienced through the assault on the President by a foreign lorn anarchist confirms the belief that the Import of the resolution should be impressed on foreign officials with a view to having such of their number present at' our next annual meeting as may be able to attend "This Is urged with the hope that a closer relationship may be established officially and personally and that there may be an interchange of opinion as to the best methods to be pursued to eliminate from society such organizations and persons as may be evilly disposed toward institutions of government and those charged with their conduct “The question Is a most vital one an John X Scatcherd who left the If the lawurt Inadequate to cruh auclnbon bulletin was issued said: organizations and punish such charact era there should be recommendations from a police standpoint which would forever prevent the like in' this country and aid the authorities abroad "I trust the members will give this matter close and careful consideration and offer such suggestions as may aid In accomplishing the desired end and that the secretary will he authorized to adopt such measures as will bring about a thorough understanding with our for-elgn friends to secure their presence and co-operation "In the meantime there should be active efforts made looking to the eradication of these evils and information gathered and disseminated through the national bureau of criminal identification with -a vlewjof accomplishing such result” This proposition will be acted upon by the directors Individually by mail If the board of directors vote to adopt their executive's views the secretary of the association will he authorized to address a letter to the officials having charge of the police affairs of the European nations requesting their attendance at the convention next year when It is expected some definite steps will be taken to effectually stamp out or destroy the danger arising from anarchistic plots ' MOESER'S SUDDEN DEATH Coroner Duller was notified this morning that 'William J Moeser of 33 Kane street dropped dead suddenly while visiting his father Henry Moeser of 29 Rey street The coroner Is Investigating In the city directory It Is said that Moeser Is foreman for Ihe Wcnborric-Sunmer Cm HODY TAKEN HOME The body of Jime M-Kconof Oswego who fell out of a fn rlli story wlntlow nl 1G0 Erie si rent yesterday nod died nt the Emergency Iinsplln was token Imirie this morning hy Frank Mi-If-on a hndher who Is miHh-r iiiech-inP- of the I Collie Will ertim n a Ir'h-mbljl g rnll- rond Jtv vL I 1-:- A- I V m GOOD NEWS BRINGS JOY TO MANY MILLlOC paces Brighten and Hearts Gut Ha Glad as News Spreads Tf:1'' McKinley The good news of the improvement of the President tnr' 7s ' f J f I the city this morning about as fast as the sad neivs of th I’ ConYrV ’ftj I Friday i' ? 5 t h At: first those who came along to grave countenance At the moment faces bore the unmistakable signs of relief and joy hey -
