Roosevelt Guarded

     New York, Sept. 9.—A special to the World from Buffalo says: “Although Vice President Roosevelt does not know it, the government has made more adequate provision for his protection than it did for that of President McKinley. Whenever the vice president leaves the residence of Lawyer Wilcox, where he is staying, there are two or three secret service men at hand to ward off any attempt that might be made on his life. The orders for the protection of the vice president come from some source that is not disclosed.”
     “During the attendance at service in the First Presbyterian church six secret service men occupied seats within a short distance of him. One of them took a seat on the box of his carriage when he drove away, and the others followed in another carriage.
     “When he alighted at the Buffalo club during the afternoon, the detectives were close at hand, and when he called at Milburn’s house to inquire after the president’s condition, they were within a few feet of him.”
