Indianapolis, lnd.t Sept. 24.—Presi-
dent Roosevelt was forced to aban-
don the remainder of his trip to the
northwest and to undergo u surgical
operation. The accident which befell
him at Pittsfield, Mass., when a trol-
ley car crashed into his carriage, is
responsible for the sudden ending
of the president's trip and his being
compelled to1 undergo the operation.
In that accident his knee was badly-
bruised and an abscess soon formed
which gave him some trouble, but
not enough at first to interfere with
his plans. The hardships of his pres-
ent trip, however, aggravated the
trouble and Dr. Lung, his official
physician, and Dr. Richardson, who
accompanied him on the trip, de-
cided that an operation was neces-
sary and that it should be performed
at once. This decision was advanced
before luncheon, but was not al-
lowed to interfere with the meal.
The announcement' came as a
thunder clap out of a clear sky.
The president is in such good health
otherwise that it was hard to be-
lieve he was about to submit to an
operation. He had delivered an ad-
dress earlier in the day before the
Spanish-American war veterans and
also had addressed the citizens of
the Columbia club. He was the pic-
ture of health and many comments
were made during the early part of
the trip upon how well he looked.
It was noticed, however, that he
walked with a slight limp.
The president was driven from the
club house to St. Vincent hospital,
where he was taken to a private op-
erating room. He was accompanied
by Secretary Cortelvon, Assistant
Secretaries I.oeb and Barnes, Gov.
Durbin and Senators Beveridge and
Fairbanks. It was about 4:15 o'clock
when the doctors began the opera-
tion. It was perfocmed by Dr. John
Oliver, assisted by Dr. Iiefiry Jame- |
son and l>r. Cook. The operation
was finished and the president waf ,
removed to his room. He did not |
take anaesthetics. The president was
cheerful. The hospital was guarded J
I by a detachment of 20 soldiers, all |
of whom served in the Spanish- j
American war under command of i
Col. Russell R. Harrison. Col. liar- |
rison was instructed to arrange with j
| the sisters in charge of the hospital
that no information ns to the presi-
dent should be p" en out by tele-
phone. All news was to come through
Secretary Cortelyou. As the new? I
spread throughout the city the tele- j
plione was kept hu-y. lHrt the IUM
answer was returned to all thai j
nothing could be told over the tele-
At the conclusion of the operation
the physicians authorized the fol-
lowing statement: "As a result ol
I the traumatism (bruise) received ir
the trolley accident at l'ittsfield.
| Mass., there was found to be a cir-
cumscribed collection of perfectly
pure serum in *he middle third of
the left anterior tibial region, the
sac containing about two ounces,
which was removed. The indication*
are that the president should makf
speedv recovery. It is absolutely
Imperative, however, that he should
remain quiet and refrain from using
the leg. The trouble is not serious,
but temporarily disabling."
At 7:45 the president, accompanied
by members of his immediate party
and escorted by a company of in-
fantry. was carried on a stretcher
from St. Vincent's hospital to his
car and the train left a few minutes
later for Washington.
Mrs. Roosevelt llantens to Waahlnfftnn.
Oyster Bay. N. Y.. Sept. 24.—The
first news of the indisposition of
President Roosevelt bulletined here
came as a rumor from New York.
Shortly afterwards the president's
office in the bank building received
the statement of Secretary Cortel-
you by wire and at the same time a
telegram was received for Mrs.
Roosevelt, assuring her there was
nothing alarming about the opera-
tion. When Mrs. Roosevelt received
word that the president had left In
dianapolis for Washington she de
cided to go to Washington at once.

Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 24.—Gen.
Jacob H. Smith, in an address on
"The Philippines" before the national
encampment of the Spunish-Ameri-
can war veterans, made his first pub-
lic utterance on the Samar cam-
paign. He defended his course and
was cheered at the conclusion of his
address. He described the island,
told of the cruelty of the natives to-
ward American soldiers, the fleeing
of the natives to the interior and
added: "We had to control the food
supply to bring them to terms. We
instituted a strict blockade to pre-
vent food being sent out. We de-
stroyed their interior huts that
formed a shelter. As they came In
we treated them kindly and returned
them to their homes. After the
women and children were in, by insti-
tuting a strict blockade, we prevent-
ed them from sending supplies to the
fighting men. By this course and
by keeping the men tired and worn
out by frequent incursions into the
interior after them they finally lost
heart and concluded to give up- the

Washington, Sept. 24.—Maj. J. W.
Powell, director of the bureau of
ethnology in the Smithsonian insti-
tute, is dead at Haven, Me. Scien-
tists in Washington placed Maj. Pow-
ell in the foremost rank of the
geologists and anthropologists in the
world. Maj. Powell's most notable
scientific work, from the view point
of scientists here, was his explora-
tion of the firand canyon of Colo-
rado in the COs. His fellow-workers
say that he was not only the first
man who ever went through the Col-
orado canyon, but the only one who
so far ever has traveled its entire
length from Green River station to
the mouth of the canyon. It was
partly undertaken in connection with
the Smithsonian institution and part-
ly by means of his own private re-
sources. His work as director of
the government geographical and
geological surveys in the Rocky
mountain region in the early 70s was
large responsible for his selection
