Theodore Roosevelt did not visit Evanston Sunday as was expected. It was announced in Chicago Saturday that he would spend the evening in Evanston as the guest of John C. Shaffer and attend the First Methodist church service in the morning. Believing he would be present, a large throng attended the church, while many remained on the outside to get a glimpse of the big Bull Moose.

But while they were waiting the colonel was twelve miles away in attendance at the Grace Reformed church in Chicago. He was accompanied at the service by his cousin, Philip Roosevelt, who is one of his traveling companions.
