Secretary Wilson Confident

     New York, Sept. 10.—“The president will be signing official papers by Saturday night,” said Secretary Wilson, of the department of agriculture, to a Tribune correspondent at Buffalo last night. Secretary Wilson had just returned from the Milburn house, where he talked with the preseident’s physicians and later, at the Buffalo Club, he conferred with Secretary Gage, Attorney General Knox and Postmaster General Smith. “Of course,” said Mr. Wilson, “no one expects that the president will be out of bed by that time, but he will be strong enough to write his name to official papers. The doctors do not feel like coming out bluntly as a layman would, but they tell me there is no doubt about the president’s speedy recovery. They do not expect any serious complications.”
