complied with on that day, although it in possible that the formalities
may go over until next Monday. The reasons for immediate action,
however, are apparent.
Dr. Judd, the attending physician said, in reference to the Governor's
condition, as interviewed by the Advertiser: "He is getting along very
comfortably. His temperature is normrtljand his condition satisfactory.
He sat up for awhile today. He is still very weak, however, and I pro
pose to keep him in hand until he recovers his strength. I have not
broached to him the matter of a long rest nud a sea trip after he regains
some measure of his strength." ! v
There can be no question that tne Governor will be urged to make
such a trip. Present signs do not poiuto the immediate resignation of
the Governor, nor very strongly to his taking control again.
