LONU BiiANCii , September 7. The
morning bulletin was received ns ai :
encouraging token of the president' ;
remaining vitality. Facilities for tele
graphic communication are excellent
and fully adequate. The listlesaness
of the Branch seems already to have
nfi'ected those who are nc.irest to ht
president. It was long after daylight
before there was ally sign of lifo out
side the president's cottage. The first
word was brought by General Swaim ,
who came over to Elberon as soon as
ho had arisen. Ho said the president
had had an excellent night. "How
did you sleep , General Swaim ? " asked
the questioner. "Bettor than for six
weeks,1 replied he , "and so did the
president , ' continued the General.
Further inquir- elicited the informa
tion that the president's fever was all
jjono by midnight.
Before that hour liohad some sleep ,
and after was nwako long enough only
to take nourishment. Between the
naps ho swallowed porridge twice and
was given ono onemata. Ho had his
sponge bath and fell asleep without
After each operation General Swaim
said that his sleep was of the right
' sort and added it would take a sicker
man than ho is to keep from enjoying
a good sleep in that room. There was
an excellent atmosphere and the nicest
kind of a breeze to st.irt in on.

respiration were normal and the pulse

The president's first full day at

Mrs. Blaine will remain. The sec

thinks there will still bo ups and

General Swaim said this afternoon
that the president had certainly held

seemed to bo bettor than in the morn
ing. "Just wait till this land breeze

Swuim , "when ho gels a sniff of good

Under the circumstances the even
ing bulletin was not an unfavorable ono
and on the whole gave general satis
faction. After the evening bulletin

several of the physicians wore obtained
and all scorned unanimous that the
day had been fully as satisfactory as
could bo expected.
Dr. Hamilton states to-night that
; ho exceeding hot weather has been
unfavorable to the president's pro-

At a late hour this evening the
gent of the National Associated

"I think ho lias. Ever since ho

or the last time , and to-morrow the
early bulletin will contain the official
announcement of the fact that here
after Dr. Bliss will have full contro !
of the case with Drs , Agnew anc
Hamilton consulting physicians. Ono
of them is to bo with Dr. Bliss all the
time. Intimations of such an occur
rence have been given from time to
time , but it was not until to-night
that the fact was in any way estab
lished. Dr. Bliss stated that the
change was made in deference to
the wish of the president and not on
account of any difference between the
physicians in the case. Ife did not
think the president had any particu
lar reason for dsiring such a change
beyond a wish to have fewer attend
ants and more quiet. "Sickmon's
wishes , " said Dr. Bliss , "aro not al
ways easily explained. "
Further inquiry to-night shows the
facts to bo about as follows : On
Saturday last the event of the project
of the journey was being definitely
considered. The president said to
Mrs. Garfield : "What is the HBO uf all
the physiciins going to Long Branch ? "
The remark so impressed Mrs. Gar
field that she mentioned it to one of
the physicians , and they talked it
over together. Meanwhile the pres
ident had said that ho thought
Dr. Bliss will bo enough to
take care of him , with
Dr Agnew and Dr. Hamilton ,
to consult with him. Under the cir
cumstances it was particularly refer
red to Dr. Agnew for his advice. Ho ,
in turn , thought that the physicians
the president proposed to eliminate
ought to bo the ones to speak. Dr.
Woodward , it seems , was anxious to
retire and both Drs. Keyourn and
Sumccm General Barnes had business
in Washington which they could ill
afford to neglect. Sp the arrange
