Secretary Gage Is Confident

     Washington, Sept. 9.—The most favorable news disclosed in Washington from Buffalo reached Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Ailes this morning from Secretary Gage over the long distance telephone. The secretary said that the latest report of the physicians was eminently satisfactory and that the president undoubtedly would get well. Secretary Gage expects to return to Washington in a day or two and will be followed at intervals by other members of the cabinet. It is not expected that any of them, with the possible exception of Secretary Hay, will remain in Buffalo for any length of time.
     Charles G. Dawes, comptroller of the currency, one of the president’s closest personal friends, sent the following encouraging telegram from Buffalo to a friend here: “The president’s condition is steadily improving and his recovery seems almost certain.”
