While the public has been aware for
a week or more that General Logan
waa confined to his room with rheu
matism, many of his most inliruate
friends were, as late as yesterday after
noon, unsnipiclous of the serious
character of tbe attack, and to tbe
musses tbe announcement in this
morning's pipers that the statesman
lay at death's door, brought a shock of
sorrowful surprise. Ah day long tbe
carriages of sympathetic cullers have
occupied the space in front of Calumet
I'.ace, while hundreds of pedeetrlaui
of all walks iu lite have climbed tbe
bill upon which the Logan mansion
stands to ack if it were true that all
hope was past. Among (boss who
