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 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.
