Though passing a comparatively quiet and
gOBsfoTtable day? the return in tli?? ?ourse D?
the evening of a chill?in duration less than
that of the precedine day?excited the
?jgTBSt apprehensions anione the G? si
dent's attendants yesterday. The patient
puttered considerably from its effects, ? biffi)
fe ?? r setting in immediately after the rigor
had passed. In the opinion of Dr. Hliss the
chills are due in great part to the enfeebled
condition of the sick man.
ATI ?G??.
I.OMi HuANCH. Sept, IS.?The day opened at El?
I)? phi wit li much promise of good news. The indi
patten? of the forenoon were such as to cause ?
feeling of encouragement. At the apiwaranee
of the evening bulletin the surgeons <le
scriBtd the day as an even one. Some
of the l'resi'lont's attendants said it had been the
bed Bunday the President had passed !'<>r several
weeks. Hut soon after the appearance of the even?
ing bulletin there ?ame a report whieh nearly otiset
all the favorable indications of t e
day. This was of another chill. The
?-ws spread rapidly and a gloomy feeling
prevailed everywhere. As a matter of fact it was
rather the sagge<tioo of a chill than a developed
one, the us?? ?>f hot applications overcoming the
ey::i])tom bet?re it had time to declare itself, and
the disturbance whs all ?>ver in ten minutes. The
incident give, however, a nule shock to those who
had hopeu far better news, and, although alight in
itself, has add?sl very much t?> the general anxiety
Whieh is umtiitested.
All thiius considered, the condition of the Presi?
dent during the night may be consid?
ered favorable. The morning bulletin was
also a cause of general satisfaction ami as at noon
110 new complica ions has Keen declar-d, it was
gessaci almost certain that tin? chill of yesterday
wa? not the forerunner of MOM DOW development.
The examination of the lungs led Dr. Hamilton to
sa> emphatically that as yet there was no ?'vidence
of the reanoteet kind that an abscess inid formed In
the liver. If there was one them it was too small to
?Maltet itaall by auy symptoms which the survenus
could recognise. The couch and expectoration
are both mnswhat less. Th<? wound, while it has not
fully regained its farmer vitality is somewhat bet 1er
than yesterday, the stomach retains its power, and
the digest!Te organs are doing good service. While
tie ruahhinl has gained Bu itrnngth. OB the other
hand, he has not lost any. The great cause of an?
xiety lies in the fact that the President docs uot
?Stai to gain strength. There is a constant fear now
that he may at BBJ moment be caUe?l upon to meet
BOBM strain for which he has no rsseTTe of strength.
Still a? the severe chill of yesterday did not reduce
Lis strength, the eurgeOOJ behevi! that he gains
a little each day? Bboat enough tc meet the addi?
tional ?It?maud. The President has bean in better
spirits, (teeming U> be in sympathy with the weather.
Mrs. Qarneld has attributed the President'! low
condition for sevrai day? past in part to the effort
Ot the heavy storm. He certainly ??-ems to have
b?*u brighter to-day uml<t the ladaCBCS "? the sun.
At the closing of the President's cottage the at?
tendanti were looking for a ?juiet sigliti as the
President has almost always slept for some time
after a chill ha? oecuired. ? he cough has been also
less troublesome through the day and evening.
There is anxiety, ueviTtheless, over the fact that
these is no gain of stringili. Up to tlm time
the evening bulletin was leaned? there was much
satisfaction felt both by Borgeoai and at?
tendants, bacanal a chill had been avonlrd.
The mBssqucuI slight chill destroyed the feeling in
? great meaaure and the night closed with r netted
anxiety arising from ih?? tear that thie tendency to?
ward chill.?? may de\ elop more stnmgly to-morrow.
Long Bkanch, N. J., Sept. is.?The ?lav spaaed
bright and clear, with a gentM brce/e blowing from
the wa. The President's condition at the morning
dressing was comparatively favorable. 'J he

S a aim went so far as to express an opinion
that the President was having the most favorable
Sunday which he had pa-?s*"d for several weeks. In?
jsrasatton obtained fresi one of the attending ens?
geone was to the effect that the patient wa-. having a
reasonably comfortable ?lav, and the Indications
warranted the opinion that no complications need
be immediately apprehended.
In conversation about noon, Dr. Boyntofl said
tliat he felt r.uli.r more encouraged by the rise in
temperature, which had reached LOO, as it was enn

"You ?lo not appear to gather any great eneonr
Bgeaeent from the Pr?sident'? eonditionf"
"No. It is perfectly natural for thes? complica?
ttena to arie ai long as the blood remains In its
presea! unhealthy condition.,'
Dr. Hamilton went home tO?olght and will return
Tuesday. Colonel Corbin also started this evening
ivi \\ ashtngton.
Notwithstanding the comparatively favorable
comli t ion 01 thepatiet noted m the even'? ? g bu I le tin,
less than an hour after its is me, another rigor oc?
curred, lasting about ten minutes. In comparison
witli the one yesterday it was light, though, as
Di. Miss remarked to-night, H WBS severe enough.
I>r. Boynton said tonight:
"the President's condition to-day, compared with
yesterdaj , show? a slight improvement.'1
"Do you not think the low mi's.? and temperature
of last night and this moruing were, favorable indi?
cations f

Dr. Bllea said to-night that the ehill
which occurred thin evening was of about

occurred, and that the patient raftered from a re?

appearance of a fever. At the time of the inter?
view, !>:;{() p. m., the pulse was about 190. When
aakad the eauso of the recurrence of the rigors, the
doctor said :
" It may be due to local causes, but, if so, they
are not manifested. I think that the recurrence is
due to the enfeebled condition of tlie patient. The

the local sores, are snffie.ient to produce

the exception of a milk punch about twenty

Dated beef blood had been administered by cucinata
in the morning, and about three ounces more would
be administered in the night; that it was not prob?

that the duine?? of the lung hai not extended;
that the coughing had been very slight to-day : that

AKK mbadkd,
The condition of the President again was the
source of grave apprehension throughout the city
yesterday. Prayers wire offered up lor his recovery
in nearly all the churches in this city and Brooklyn.
As has bMn the cuse for several weeks past, the
bulletins were closely scanned hy the general pull?
uli. The temperature, pulse and respiration are now ?
notili by the public, and from these are drawn con?
clusions a? to the actual condition of the President
lather than from the general statement? con?
tained in the ollicial bulletins. The an?
nouncement that the patient had had a
chill on Saturday was accepted as a very hail symp?
tom, and most persons expected to hear that he was
very in in )i worse yesterday. The tact, that he
seemed perhaps aligntlj better gave renewed hope
to the more sanguine. T? the less Impelili the laet
remain? that the removal of the Presi?! ut to the
bracing air of Long Branch has not bad the bene?
ficial eftect that was hoped for. A recurrence oi un?
favorable symptoms is dreaded in the President's
weak condition.
M dical men who have studied the Presi?
dent's condition from day to day, by the
official bulletin?, are apprehenaive of more
aeriooa lung troubl?e. It is known that the lower
part of the right lung is consolidated and that its
beali by action is thus impeded. Should pneumonia
attack the left lung, and this might readily happen
in the i'rotudeut'e weak condition, very grave leurs
are entertained by them of the result. Added to
this ife the presence of blood poisoning, although it
is hoped that this has not advanced to such a de?
gree m to prevent its yielding to proper treatment.
The public understand that the President is in a
critical condition, but hope tor the best. At the
hotels yoater lay and last evening his condition was
the theme of conversation, a d th? bulletins were
scanned with unusual interest in the hope that each
succeeding one would furnish more hope.

Atlanta, f?a., Sept. IB.?"Seventeen working

| course I w ill. I never was behindhand in my life,
? and I don't propose to begin at this late day.''
The above brief conversation isa fair Indication
? of the spirit and energy manifested by the Director?
I General of the Cotton ExpoeJt on from the begin?
ning of this great enterprise to the prenant hour:
and the ane?os? of the person? who, under his di?
rection, have secured the immense exhibit that is
now rapidly aeaumtng shape i the many buildings
of the Exposition, is as much due to his vim and
bopefulnee* m to *11 other thing? combined. It has
been ? great burden to carry ; bal there were stout
shouhleis ami a stouter heart under them an I every?
thing ha? gone forward with a rapidity and a cer?
tainty of execution that has 1.? simply niar
veihuis The Director-General haa much the same
exeenti ve ability as ex? President tirant. He plans
his campaign skilfully and know-, how? to select, the
right men to carry it out. Il?? wastes no words but
always rets hy the shortest possible cut to what he
is fond ?G styling "the nub of the thing." Saving
been in and out of his office daily for the last
three months, I have had an opportunity to
see and admire his method of dispatch?
ing business. Only to-day tin? representative of
the American Watch Company told me that he had
come from Cincinnati to set ? le some business in eon?
ncction with his company*? exhibit that wonld
have required many.long letter?; that he expected I
to be here three <ir four daya before he eoul?' get ?

five ??dice and Introduced myself, and told Mr. Kim- !
hall what I wanted, and in three m:nutes he Batt?i d
the whole matter to t?? satisfaction, and I am
ready to return by the next train."
There are a very few l?ft in this community of the i
old regime who cannot reconcile themselves to the
new stlrrtngand progressive st\le which Mr. Kim- ?
ball has Introduced in this City ; but the great major?
ity of the peuple and all the business men of any

temp'?, and he can well afford to ignore the rest.
The ? ime fur receiving application? for exhibits ex?

made some ten day? before that this would hr 'he

country who did not I elieve it. ? hen? were amner
OUI nhers who could not make up tin ir minds to

the Exposition headquarters every lay this week,
and the urgeiiey expressed by many of them is cer?

Lo-nos. Sept. 1.?Ever since Des ? Stanley died,
speculation has U?en rife as to hi* successor. Tlie
Deanery of Westun ister is regard.? a- SBS of the
prizes of the Church. Compared t?i the great bish?
oprics, its money value is small. The gag is only
$10.000 a year, while the chief episcopal salari?e
range from .-_?(?(.?.? to fnj?t? a year and only
two ?ir three of the iunior ones are leas than
$20,000. One of the Canons of ?Vent minster, owing
to some anomaly the origiu of which is prohaldy
ancient and therefore venerable, has a larger in
esSBS than the Dean has from the revenue? of ttie
Abliey. It b;ie been said to be one charm of West?
minster that its I lean is subject to no episcopal
BBthority. lie can snap bis fing?-rs m ttie face of
the greatest spiniual potentate of them ali, even
bim af Canterbury. Primate <>t All l.ng'aml, or bun
of Leaden, who would naturally b. the Dean's
spiritual superior. The metaphor is perhaps too
frivolous to apply to au ecclesiastical dignitary.
Bat it is cartels that Dens Stanley tolerated no
inlerlerenc?' with his adtninist ? ai ? ?a of the Abbey,
and accepted uo rebuke from any hishop whatever
for any ?if bis theological escapades.. He wa* not
only independent of the Bishop Of London. He
contested with him the leadership of the religious
world in bis own diocese. Of the cxtra-ecclt?siasti
ssl aptondar with w hteh Dosa Stanley, thanks to his
standing at Court, in general so. : ?ty and in litera?

Of the candidates mentioned during Die I as ? few
w.eks the best known was Canon Liddon, the
fa-hio lahle preacher who so crowds St. Paulo
When he |.leaclics that tickets are iasnsd SB all the
gaad plac. s. and ar?? diliicult to g t. Ile is what is
called an elasrnsnl preacher, .me vastly a.lmired
by women, and hie appointaient would have been
popular in society. 15 it he Bslsngg to that Meet ot
the Church known as Btgh, and his nomination
would have ollende.l the Evangelical? past torgive
ness, besides beim; a sharp ?ensure u|k>u the
memory of Dean Stanley, wno was o.-forc all thine?
a liroad Churchman. The pia. c was not. at any
rale, sauced to Canon Liddon. nor vet to Canoa
lanar, also a favorite preactier with churchgoer?
of the West Und. It was or!? red to the 1 Van of
Chltetoharrli. Dr. Li?l?tell, one of the autlmrs of the
Ci.-ek Lexicon known and used in America, as uni
,'\\ as here, and one of the lest scholars of his
day. Hut be pre I erred to sti? k to Oxford, af which
he Is Viw-Chaiieellor. It was proposed aja? to Dr.

Llatuiatl, I 'ran Stanley's btsg h?T-:n-law. and a
most I.-ai ue,1, excellent ami too manant man. and
by him atee refused. I iiially.it was ottered U? and
accepted by Dr. B?ndle?/.
The appointment o' Dr. Hradlcy is not what is
called popular. He is not known as a pr.-sclier and
has never published Sermons, nor hooks of any
kind, nor taken a lead iu any ol the innumerable
eoe tremente? with which the Church beguiles its
leisure. He belongs to BS gr.at family, and is S
?trangeC hi BW iety. None the less is be a very able
m tu. who has done most useful ami honorable work
? his own line, Like Stanley, he was a pupil of
? mold, and i behove had gtaaley Buunuff for ?
tutor at Oxford. By and by he beeeaaa an umler
