Long Chase for Dr. Janeway
New York Physician Summoned to Buffalo from the
Heart of the Adirondacks.
New York, Sept. 13.—[Special.]—A
dispatch from President McKinley’s secretary, Mr. Cortelyou, summoning
Dr. Edward G. Janeway to Buffalo was delivered to the physician
this morning after a long chase in the Adirondacks.
The message was first sent to Dr.
Janeway’s home in this city at 36 West Fortieth street and was delivered
there at 1 o’clock this morning. The servant told the messenger
that Dr. Janeway was in the Adirondacks and that his address was
St. Hubert’s Inn, Keene Heights, Essex County.
St. Hubert’s Inn is twenty-four miles
from the nearest railroad station and about half way between the
Lake Placid station on the Adirondack division of the New York Central
and Westport on the Delaware and Hudson railroad. The dispatch was
forwarded at once from this city and reached St. Hubert’s Inn at
6 o’clock this morning. Dr. Janeway had left the inn for the Lake
Placid station an hour before to go to Saranac Lake to visit a patient.
One of the men at the hotel volunteered
to overtake the physician and deliver the message. He mounted the
best horse available and after more than two hours of hard riding
caught the doctor’s carriage. Dr. Janeway kept on to Lake Placid
station, arriving there in time to take the 10:30 o’clock train
which connected with a New York Central train on the main line.
The doctor reached Buffalo early this evening.
