Favorable Bulletins from Washington


Condition of the President Eminently Satisfactory to the Physicians—
Passed a Most Comfortable Night.
A Speedy Recovery Is Expected Should No Complications Arise.

     Cablegrams received by Governor Taft giving the contents of the bulletins hourly issued by the physicians in attendance on President McKinley are most encouraging and give the greatest hope of the President’s speedy recovery. The pulse remains within the normal range and every condition is so favorable that a quick recovery is looked for should no complications set in.
     The telegrams received by Governor Taft last night are as follows:—

     Tuesday, 9 a.m.—Condition eminently satisfactory to physicians. Should no complications arise speedy recovery expected. Pulse 104, temperature by mouth 99.08, respiration 26.


Washington, Sept. 10, 10.40 p.m.     

     Bulletin, Tuesday, 3 p.m.—There has been no change since 9 a.m. Favorable bulletin; pulse 110, temperature 100, respiration 28.


     The following cable to the TIMES was received at noon today:—

     “President McKinley’s condition shows continued improvement, although all danger is not passed.”
