The news from the White House to-day is very much to the same effect as that which wehave been publishing for the last two Jdsys. There is no change for the better in .the condition of the patient, and it is only a .question of a few hours when he may be re lieved from the sufferings he has endured ho heroically. That this is the conviction of those who have the best 'opportunities for knowing is certified to by the preparation made by Vice-Preri- L"udent Arthur to occupy the Presidential chair. lrHe has, it U reported, already selected his ('"Cabinet, and is prepared to assume the duties at a moment's notice. - He will more than likely be sworn in by New York City. s Federal judge in As oyster winter. famine Li predicted for next SdATOR Beck will be re-elected by Ken tucky, and by "a larpe majority."

The probable policy of the Democrats in the organization of the United States Senate is giving the Republican presses and politi cians a great deal of uneasiness. According to the Agricultural Bureau's report, the present year's crop of wheat will be 52,000,000 bushels lees than in 1880, and the crop of corn will be at least 89,000,000 bushels less. The news in 'Wall street yesterday that 200,000 had been withdrawn from the Bank of England for shipment to America, and that crops in Great Britain had sus tained further damage, led to a general im provement of prices on the Stock Exchange toward the close. v j. It u now stated that Captain Howgate's defalcation may reach the enormous figure of $400,000. He has had control ot the dis bursements of the Meteorological Bureau for five years, and has evidently been stealing with great seal and system; and no wonder, since it appears that he maintained not only one but several women, and was very lavish with what people thought was his own money. A siu of 160,000 acres of land, situated in the southern part of Central Miasouti, was made Thursday. Very little can be learned of the transaction, but the belief is that the Kansas City, Springfield and .Mem phis Railroad Company are the purchasers, as the line of that road is to run through that section of the State, and it is known that that company has made extensive purchase of land lately. This will be good news to the people of this cijy aa it plainly indicates the capacity of the Kansas City Railroad company to accomplish all that it has prom ised of quick and solid work.

Undf.b date of Hammerfest, Norway, July 26th, Commodore Wadleigh, in com mand of the United States steamer Alliance, now on her way to the Arctic ocean in search of the Jeannette, writes to the Secretary of the Navy that the Mayors of the different districts of Iceland have been directed lb re port everything in the shape of driftwood, to which may be discovered on the north ern coasts of Iceland. They have also been furnuhed with description of the Jeannette fishing vessels and walrus hunters; and are also to be furnished with descrip tion of the Jeannette. Ice is reported very heavy to the northward, and several of the vessels that left for Spitzbergen have return ed, reporting that they were unable to get through, but by proceeding more to the west, ward probably less difficulty will be expe rienced, as a majority of the vessels are still .absent. The European crops, like those of the United States, will this year be under the average. M. Enthrone, in his annual report of the crop of the different countries of the world, puts the wheat crop of France this year a little below the average, and likely to realize oaly 10,000,000 quarters, ana in At tria and Hungary above the average, though later accoanU report injury.. . In Italy the crops are medium quality and , much fcalow the abundance of 1880.

When the much desired rain fell it was trans formed on touching the ground into an im mense vapor bath, which, say the chroniclera of the period, caured the death of numbers of peop' by suffocation, whole caravans being stilled in some districts. The Hummer of 1822 waa also aremarkaable one, the harvest being so early that new flour waa sold in the French markets on the 28th of June. Ten years later, in 1S32, the sultriness of the weather furthered the spread of the cholera epidemic which broke out in Franca in tha beginning of March, and carried off in Paris alone 18,400 persons. The summer ot 1SVS was a dry and exceedingly hot one, like the present, so w,as that of 1878. There is not much comfort in these figures and facta for those who have heroically endured the long drawn out heated term, but it is well to know them. STORY OF A DAY Of Dread Suspense ami Un utterable Anxiety To the People of a Great Republic. Glints of Hope Flash Out Only to .be Quenched The Next Instant by a Deep er Gloom. A Silence that is Ominous Of Disaster. Nothing Official from the Executive Mansion Since 10 O'Clock Last Night Except Brief Telegrams .Which Mean i Nothing, Or May Mean More Than Is Told. Washjkoton, August 20 Quarter-pant Six O'Clock A.M. The physicians and attend ants cannot yet be seen, bat from the best information obtainable at this hour it is be lieved there has been no decided change for the better since midnight. The President's sleep during the night was frequently inter rupted by interval of restlessness. rram Dr. Keyborsu . Seven O'clock AM. Dr. Reyburn says thin morning that no material change in the con dition of the President has occurred during the night He -observes no diminution of strength nor in the frequency of the pulse, which this morning is about 119. An in creased discharge of pus from the parotid swelling took place during the night. First Official Bulletin. Hatf-paii Eight O'Clock A.M. The annexed official bulletin has just been issued: "The . President slept most of the night, awakening at intervals of half an hour to one hour. On fin-t awakening there was, as there has been for several nights past, some mental confu sion, which disappeared when he was fully roused; and occasionally he mattered in his sleep. These symptoms" have abated this morning, as on previous days. At present his temperature is slightly above the normal, and his pulse a little more frequent than yesterday morning. Pulse, 108; tempera ture, 1)9; respiration, 17." Still the Basse Sad KeTrain. Ten O'Clock AM. Hat very little infor mation was obtained from the physicians cdB cerniog the condition of the President this morning prior to the issuance of the morning bulletin. The absence of all reference in the bulletin to the general condition of the Pres ident, and to the parotid swelling, was at once noticed and commented upon by those waiting for it. The situation is considered by many as less hopeful than it was last night at midnight, and by others as more so. Attorney-General MacVeagh pronounces it extremely critical, and when asked this morning how long he thought this suspense would continne, replied : "God only knows." Postmaster-General James and Secretary Hunt telegraphed to Thurlow Weed: "A gleam of hope at 10 a.m. comes from the sur geons. His symptoms are no worse and an improvement is not impossible." Dr. Bliss came out of the surgeons' room about 9:30 this morning, to telephone his ife that the President was a little better than last night. In reply to interrogatories he said the President's pulse this morning t less frequent, and that the parotid elling had broken into the right ear and ia dincharainff through that orifice. The patient's mind was clearer, and he conversed rationally with the surgeons about the condi tion of the inflamed gland. He partook of food, which seemed to be grateful to him, and his arenerat conumon appeared tu ub a liitin imnroved. The doctor expressed him- lf aa hnneful that the swollen gland would be relieved by the discharge through the ear, and that he would pull through the day without much change. A Coaversatisn With Secretary Kirk., Eleven O'Clock A.M.

T.kinir un a small egg-shaped sponge which lay on the reporters' table the Secre tary continued: "As I understand the case, from what the surgeons have told me, the President's right parotid gland is in some re spect like thia sponge. Everywhere through it there are little cells or packets, in each of which there i an accumulation of pus. The !..;.,;. ,n niaitn ih dav before vesterdav pierced one of these pockets and released the I, lid v hich that particular one contained, but it did not drain the otherr, and in fact the others could not be effectually drained at this stage of suppuration by a single incision made anywhere. The fear last night was that Hit pus retained in these small cavities would become unhealthy, and, as I before uid result in acute blood-poisoning. Dr. Bliss told us, however, last night, just be fore we went home, that ha had - not given up the hope of favorable rhmM dnrinir the night, and the surgeons lhink thia morning that there has been such slight change for the better aa Dr. Bliss hoped for. The breaking of the suppurating gland into the cavity of the ear ill it ia thought, afford niore relief than could be given in any other way, and it is therefore regarded as a favorable symptom. The discharge through that channel seems to be free. The pus is thus far of a healthy character, and the valiant's mind this morn ingU clearer than last night, ;hpw tag that iWa has been no blood-poisoning oi conse- -wr. from the gland as yet. la Ring ever? '-io consideration, 1 think there asn Uu. loT mor hor' HaVpn Eleven O'Clock AM.-1? room this morning, was asked what be thought of the President's condition. "Well," he said, "there is just enough en couragement this morning to revive the faint hope which I had np to last night that the President would pull through. From what the surgeons told me yesterday evening I re ceived the impression that the swollen parotid gland had very much the character of V se vere and dangerous carbuncle, which was enough of itself to bring a well mau very low, even if it did not cause his death. With this impression, hope pretty much left me. This morning, however, I feel again a little en couragement." "Upon what ground?" "Well, the inflamed gland, I am told, looks better than it did last night and is discharg- ine quite freely through the ear. This the surgeons regard as favorable, and it seisms so to me. I think, too, that the general condi tion of the patient is a little improved to day. His mind acts better and grasps ideas more readily than it did last night, and there has been this morning none of that incohe rency of speech which was then noticed. If be were getting worse X do not in inn this would be the case. Upon the whole, there fore, I think we are justified in feeling slight ly more encouraged. The case is not entirely hopeless." Dr. Woodward. UDon beine asked at 11 'clock whether there was any reason to-day for increased hope, replied: "There is cer tainly no reason for less hope. Pua is be ing drained quite freely from the inflamed gland through the ear." Is there any danger that the pus will una its way down the throat?" "1 think not. Nothing but mucus baa been found in the throat as yet." "What do you hope most for to-day?" "I hope that the incision to-day made in the face and the drain through the ear will take the pus from the gland." What Secretary Blalae Ray a. Twelve O'clock M. Secretary Blaine, who as lust lett the Executive Mansion, says that the surgeons are still feeling a little more hopeful with regard to the President's case than they did last night, on account of thecontioed outflow of pus irom the inflamed gland through the ear. The general condi tion of the patient, however, has not, he says, materially changed. During the morn ing his pulse has been fairly steady, but is now a little higher than at 8:30. Meerelarj- Blaine's ltlspatcti. Half-vast One O'clock P.M. Secretary Blaine has just sent the following dispatch to Minister Lowell at London: "At this hour the President's pulse and temperature are igh; pulse, 118: temperature, 100. During several hours last night, his pulse was 120. In the early morning it fell to 108. It is hoped that the parotid swelling has found a slight relief by a discharge of pus through the right ear. He continues to swallow liquid food in adequate supply. He exhibits a tend ency to continuous sleep or drowsiness. His physicians pronounce his condition to be crit ical" A Special Dispatch. During the morning the following special ispatch was sent to one of the iew York papers: "lhe President passed a weary, restless night, but fortunately he was uncon scious, or rather wandering in his mind, at 11 times. When asleep he talked incessantly, ut unintelligibly lor the most part. Occa sionally he would call upon some familiar name. Several times he fancied himself in his Ohio home. The pulse and temperature continued high, but near morning, he slept at longer intervals. Mrs. laurueld remained near him all the watches of the night. At 6 a. m., finding that there was a prospect of greater rest for him, she went went to lie down. The usual Thursday evening prayer-meeting last night at the Christian Church was a vey sol emn scene. : Rev. Mr. Powers presided, and hen he spoke of the President's condition sobs were heard in every part of the little building. Prayers were made for the re covery of the President, and a meeting for the same purpose took place at noon to-day. What tha Break Ins; ot Porlrndn. the Swelling Special dispatch to the New York Evening Pott: "Private Secretary Brown, in his pri vate note to the Cabinet officers, had stated that the swelling in the neck had broken in wardly and was discharging through the mouth, which recalls the tact that last night Dr. Boynton said that if the swelling should break inwardly there would be no possible chance for hope. The bulletin has only added to the gloom. The surgeons told the Cabinet last night that unless there was a radical change for the better by 9 o'clock this morning there would be no hope. Nine o'clock has come, and there has been no such radical change. On the contrary, the President's condition is worse. "Mrs. Edson left the White House early this morning for a short rest at home. She said while there that she had left the Presi dent with the full conviction that he waa dying. For the greater part of the night he was unconscious, and at. times it was impos sible to arouse him. When she left his bed side, at 4 o'clock, he was in that condition. "During the night Mrs. Garfield was sit ting on one side of the bed, while she sat on the opposite. The President aronsed from his stupor for a moment and noticed his wife at his bedside, whereupon he suggested that she had better go to her room and get some rest. She asked to be allowed to remain with him for awhile, and he then said : 'It is true that we must separate soon; well, perhaps you had better stay then.' Saying this he re lapsed into his drowsy state, breathing heavily. . During the night there were indications of further trouble in his stomach. Mrs. Ed son, for th.e first time, wai overcome by sad ness, and was too much agitated lo find the rest needed. After a Bhort stay at her house, therefore, she again returned to the sufferer's bedside." Kson Official Bulletin. The midday official bulletin says: "At the morning drewing of the President it was observed that pus from the parotid swell ing had found its way spontaneously into bis right external auditory meatus, through which it was discharging. Some of the pus was sIao discharging through the incision made into the swelling. His wound looks as well as it has for some time past. His pulse and temperature at present are higher than at the corresponding hour for some days. He continues to t ike by mouth the liquid food prescribed. Nevertheless, we regard his con dition as critical. Pulse, 118; temperature, 100; respiration, 18." Effect of the Midday Bulletin. rw O'Clock P.M. The noon bulletin has rather deepened than lessened the anxiety which prevails at the Executive Mansion, The discharge of pus from the inflamed par otid gland through the ear, which was re garded this morning aa a favorable change, and one likely to afford relief, has not thus far answered the expectations, the symp toms of the patient continue to be urgent and alarming, and he seems to be gradually sink, "g.

"Is the dancer now to be apprehended that of acute blood-poisoning from the pus in the gland?" "No, I do not think there ia much danger of that now. lie is more likely to die irom exhaustion. It is a question of his ability t hold out if the present condition of things continues."

"Is the mental disturbance attributable either to the condition of the swelled gland or to absorption by the blood of any of the vitiated products of suppuration there?" "No; I think not.

"Has the patient's pulse been higher at any time to-dav than it was when lhe ex amination was "made for the noon bulletinr'1 "No, 1 think not. Of course, every time we move or disturb him the rate of pulse is accelerated; but we do not always take it at such times, and might not notice a transient fluctuation. The rate given in the neon bulletin was, I believe, the highest observed to-day. The character of the pulse, how ever, ia of quite as much importance as the rate, and in the President's case the char acter has improved a little since morning." "Is Mrs. uarneld fully aware of the gravity of the situation?" "Yes: she ia with her husband now almost alj. the time. She is a close observer, and notices the slightest change in his condition and appearance, and she discusses hia symp toms with us ireqnently. we have not thought it necessary to say anything to her with regard to the probable result of the case because we still hope lor a recovery. Uoea her strength hold out, and doe she still keep up?" fertectly. bhe has not shown the slight est weakness." In case the President should grow worse. so much as to leave no room for hope, what would probably be the canse ot his death r "Exhaustion. Unless some new compli cation should make its appearance the pa tient is not likely to die directly from any other cause." . ' "Is there any intention of sending for Dr. Agnew?" rio. We should be glad, of course, to have the benefit of Dr. Agnew's counsel, and if there was the slightest doubt as to the proper treatment of any symptom of the President's case we should send for him, bnt there is none. We are entirely agreed noon the treatment." In conclusion Dr. Bliss said : "Please do not misunderstand me, and quote me as say ing that the President's case is hopeUss. I do not think it is. He has a chance, although perhaps a slim chance, of recovery, and of his recovery I have still hope." : Can Hardly Sarvlve the Ki;h. Three O'Clock PM.Vo to noon to-day there has been no improvement in the Presi dent's case: in fact it has become more criti cal. His mind has wandered at time all the morning, and though he rallies and given liquid food by the mouth at intervals he does not appear to gain in strength, and it is evident the stomach hag lost the power of assimilating food.- The general breaking np of the cellular pub sacs in the inflamed gland and it discharge through the orifice of the right ear relieved the patient someyhat, but it is feared that there is yet imminent danger of the sloughing of the abscess or the descent of pus into the. body. Dr. Boynton, when questioned by the Western Associated Press Agent thia morn ing, said he saw no indications of improve ment. Secretary Blaine when asked, replied that though the doctors appeared to be encour- ged he could not see on what they based their hopes. J-T. Hamilton thought there had been no improvement in the past twenty-four hours. J. he excitement on the streets and about the White House has been steadily on the increase all morning. About 11 o'clock it was generally kuown that word had been sent to the various departments to be in read iness to close up on receiving notification of the President's death, and this had the effect of sending the excitement np to fever heat. lhe members oi the Cabinet have all been at the White House since early this morn ing, and callers have been more numerous than for several days, especially just before the hour for issuing the noon bulletin. That paper was nearly an hour late to-day. and its gloomy tale was fully discounted long before it appeared on the streets. When it did come it effectually killed all hope, and at this writing the fear is general that the President will not survive the night. Sinking; with the Son. Four O'Clock PM. Dr. Reyburn reports that the condition of the President continue extremely critical. There has been no mark ed change for the worse since noon, but his pulse is rather higher and feebler and his vitality seems very low. There is no ap prehension of immediate death, but there i on the other hand nothing a yet to strength en the faint hope of a rally which the sur geons still entertain. Absolutely Ma Hope. At 3 p.m. the special correspondent of the New York Evening Pott forwarded hia paper the annexed telegram: Dr. liliRs has just left the sick chamber for a short rest. He said that there had been no change since the noon bulletin. isut do you abandon hope, as most seem to have done?" I a?ked, "Certainly not," replied the doctor, but his manner was not of that hope, and for the first time he was not inclined to talk. Dr. Boynton also left the White House for a short relief from watching. He waa too much overcome with emotion to talk; the words choked in his throat. From another source, however, it U learned that there has been a change since the midday bulletin and a decided change for the worse. At this time his pulse has increased to 138, and the other symptoms correspond. Ihey have administered milk, brandy and egg as a stimulant. One oi the attending surgeons has just in formed a Cabinet officer that there is abso lutely no hope. It is feared that if the present change for the worse continues the President may be in a comatose state before morning, although dissolution is not ex pected for a day or two. Evening; Official Bulletin. Ilalf-paitl Six O'Clock P.M. The annexed official bulletin, signed by all the surgeons except Dr. Agnew, who is absent, was issued at 6 p.m.: "The President's condition has not changed materially since the last bulletin was issued. He continues to take by mouth the liquid food prescribed, and occasionally asks for it. Since yesterday forenoon, commencing at 11:30 am., the enemata have again been given at regular intervals, as a means of ad ministering stimulants as well as nutrition. Thev are retained wilhont trouble. At n res ent his pulse is 116; temperature, 99.9; res piration, is. A niapatcn from Cleveland. The following dispatch has been received from Cleveland, Ohio: "Joseph Rudolph, brother-in-law of the President, left this afternoon for Washing ton, in company with Captain Henry. Mr, Rudolph has been in charge of the Mentor homestead while the President has been away, and has had the care of the President's younger sons, nine and eleven years old. In oliedience to a telegram last night from Mrs. Garfield these sons are left at Mentor. They were informed last evening of the President's almost hopeless condition and were greatly distressed, but did not murmur on being told that they could not go to him. Business has been much depressed here to-day in conse quence of the news from Washington. Many of the 1 residents intimate friends have gathered in sorrowful knot and condoled together. Though a dispatch from Harry Garfield to Postmaster Stierwin stating that there was a slight improvement this morn ing gave great encouragement and excited renewed hope, lat-r news depressed them beyond expression." Vie-Prident Arthur. A dispatch from New York says: "Vice- President Arthur was seen at his house to day at noon. He states that he has only re ceived the official bulletins in regard to the President s condition. He ha not been sum moned, nor has he received any intimation to be in readiness to go to the cSpital. Should he receive such message he would go at once. He refused to state what he thought of the President's condition or it requirement in relation to the Vice-President." A u 41 pillion irom Dr, Kcjbara. Dr. K.jyL'Rrn just before the appearance of the eveuiiiic bulletin said that in hi judg ment the pitient had not lost any ground since the middle cf the afternoon. It was feared, he said, at one time to-day that the whole parotid gland would slough off in a suppurating tuaa, and if thia should ovcur the shock to the patient's system would almost certainly prove fatal. Later in the after noon, however, the appearance of the gland was more reassuring and gave ground for hope that the suppuration would be confined within the limits of simply a bad ab scess. The doctor said he could not vet bring himself to the belief that the President would die, although he appreciated fully the gravity of the situa tion, lhe vitality ot the patient was very low, and it was questionable whether he could hold out much longer against the d pressing influence of the suppurating gland nevertheless he felt that if they could tide him two or three days, and get the glandular complication tinder control, he would still stand a fair chance of recovery. In speaking of the lresident'a general svmntoms. Dr. Revburn said the President had been a little quieter this afternoon, and had shown no further signs of mental disturbance. He had continued to take food satisfactorily, and had slept a good deal in short naps. In other respects his general condition seemed to be untthanged. Developments of tbe rjay. Ten O'Clock P.M. Up to this hour there have been three changes in the President's condition to be noted : Early this morning everything was bad. It could not have been worse without the im mediate prospect of death. Later in the That was the first change. The rally was, however, very feeble and did not continue long enough to even send up to a high mark the buoyant feeling generally to be found under the most -adverse circum stances at the White House. After the short rally during the forenoon came the midday bulletin, . It waa bad. It was very bad. It showed a weakness in . the whole system of tha patient That he was worse i than at the same ' hour yesterday waa admitted by the physician. The change for tha worse became more apparent as the afternoon wore on. At shortly before S o'clock the sleepiness increased, and the President appeared in a comatose condition. That such a condition waa an evidence of well developed blood-poieouing, which he undoubtedly has. Hia pulse ran up to 136, with a corresponding increase of tempera ture. Then followed the administration of stimulant. To nndo the sleepiness whisky to the amount of five drachms at intervals and the yolk of an egv, with milk, was ad ministered by enemeta, . That waa the second change. ' The administration ot stimulants had its effect upon the pulse, and it went down, but the sleepiness continued, and despite the stimulants he waa unconsciois in slumber for an unusually long period during the after noon, Wiih the subsidence of the pulse the doctor announce a more favorable condition, and the 6:30 o'clock bulletin, as Dr. Hamil ton expressed it, showed a shadow of im provement. That marked the third change up to 10 o clock to-night. lhe greatest danger now is that the Presi dent cannot be given sufficient strength to carry him along, so that the more fatal con- it ions of blood-poisoning' nay be warded off. He is so weak and his blood ia so im poverished that it seems almost impossible to successfully overcome the dangerous com plications which have followed each other fast and faster. Later advice from the sick-room than the dispatches of last night contained information that the burrowing abscess broke inside and the pus waa dis charged through the ear. All efforts to con trol the abscess seemed to avail nothing. The break inside was admitted to be a most dangerous sign. One of the physicians said before it oc curred that if such a contingency should arise he did not think the President could survive. Again last night the President became anxious and worried on the subject of being removed. Mrs. Edson waa with him. The President said : "Where is Dr. Bliss?" "In the next room," ike replied. After an impatient movement the President aid, "Go and tell him to come here: tell him I want to be removed and pnt in my own bed. I won't stay here any longer." After considerable trouble. Mrs. Edson quieted him, and he went to sleep for a few minutes. It will be remembered that when Dr. Ham ilton cut the gland, the other day, he did it in order to give an outlet for the accumu lated matter, fearing that it would seek for an outlet itself, and possibly go through the ears. The swelling of the gland ha not gone down perceptibly. Attorney-Ueneral AlacVeagh and Post master-General James have been most widely divergent in their view for the past three week. The Postmaster-General has kept up hope, and the Attorney-General has been the other way. To-day these two gentlemen came nearer being in coincidence with each other than heretofore; they are, in fact, not very far apart in their opinions. The Attorney-General, after being told by the physicians about the bursting of the gland, and being made acquainted with the other features of the case, summarizes in ying: "The situation is very critical." Postmaster-General James, after talking with the surgeons put the diagnosis of hi opinion in the words: "Improvement is not impossible." lhe ground upon which the ray of hope, which at 12 o'clock ha shed its light around the White House, ha the corner stone of its foundation is the free and natural suppuration from the inflamed gland. The relief consequent upon the outflow of the matter which had accumulated, is not only perceptible but very marked. There hangs the thread of hope. lhe gathering at the White House for the noon bulletin waa unusually large. .The talking in the Private Secretary' room went on in undertones. The crowd got impatient. nd a usual there were those on hand to sav that the delay was the sign of a bad bulletin. This impression wss Hsrongthened by the recollection that nsualry tke general charac ter of the medical announcement, is known beforehand and that to-day there was not the slightest thing known about it before it promulgation. There was a rapid break for down stairs with the bulletin as they were distributed. Sergeant Dinsmore ha to stand at the head of the stairway and check the stampede of bulletin-holders, to prevent too much noise being made in the hurry to get out of the house with bulletins. The bulletin-bearers are becoming a nuisance. The bulletin was aa depressing as anticipated. The pulse had gone np ten beats since thia morning. The temperature had gone np nearly a tenth, and there waa no improvement in the respiration. r. Blaine's Hla-ht Dispatch. Secretary Blaine sent the annexed dis patch to Minister Lowell, at London, at 10 o clock to-night: "While the fresident has made no gain to-day, his loss of ground has been less in the judgment ot hi physicians than was feared last night. In this aspect there is a slight feeling of encouragement, or at least a rav of hope. Adverse svmntoms are still manifest, but the one favorable indication of swallowing and digesting liquid food con tinues. I wo or three time during the day he baa asked for nourishment. He ha spoken intelligently and volubly, and throughout the day his mind ha been less affected than yesterday. The expected re lief to the parotid swelling from the dis charge through the ear ha not been real ized, lhe situation is one ot great gravity and danger. Another Talk With Boynton. Dr. Boynton said this evening to the re porter of the Associated Press, that he thought there had been a very slight im provement in the iresident s general condi tion since 4 o'clock. "Up to that hour." he said, "I think ke had gradually failed. Hia pulse ran up early in the afternoon as high aa 133, and remained at 136 for a consider able time. 1 thought once be could hardly live through the night. About 4 o'clock, however, he rallied slightly, and since that time ha fully held his own. In fact, I think hi general condition is now a trille better. "Have indications oi swelling or suppura tion appeared any wnere except in the wound and parotid gland?" "What waa the character of the pus dis charged to-day by the wound 7 It looked about as it did last night." Was it a healthy looking last night as before that time?" No, not quite. It was less m quantity and had a slightly watery appearance. "To what was that attributable?" "Probably to the impoverished condition of the patient a blood. "Do yon think there is anything in the changed character of the pus discharged by the wound to cause additional alarm?" "No. It only shows the weak and depleted condition oi tne patient s body, it is evi dence of inanition." "What are the symptoms to-night which you regard as mora tavorabier' "Well, the character of his pulse is a little better, for one thing, and there seems also to be tome improvement in his mental condi tion. He has been brighter since 4 o'clock than he was before that time, but of course this change for the better, if it can be so called, is very sugnt." Bliss Ag-aia Talks, Dr. Bliss shortly after noon, in an inter view, expressed himself aa practically aban doning all hope of the President's recovery, and conveyed the impression of having given the case up. At 5 o'clock this afternoon he had veered around considerably. At that hour he was asked how long he thought the discharge from the gland would keep up. He replied that it might discharge freely forty-eight hours and then oeze. "How about the nourishment?" "He ha been given sufficient nourishment to sustain him by enemata; he has been given the yelk of an egg, peptonized milk and six drachms of whisky every four hours. By the mouth he ha been fed very liberally. Very fresh beef juice has been administered and i . - -. , i tt: . i : 1 ne retains ll ail. Jiis auuuaui is acuug mw mirably." "Is there any improvement in the Presi dent's appearance?" "There is. He look better to-day than yesterday." "Is there pyemia?" . fThere ia not. There is poisoning in the blood, as there ha been for some days; but Dvemia has not developed itself.1' "Is the report true that the pua discharge smells offensively?" "It ia not. The pua is healthy in character, forenoon there was a rally, and there is nothing whatever offensive about it." "Ia there evidence of inflammation in any other gland about the body?" "There are no sign whatever of such in flammation. No other parts of the body are lnnamea." "If the present symptom should become aggravated to their worst, do you think there would be danger of immediate death?" liven with snch aggravation, which 1 do not expect, the .resident could not die in side of three days at the least." W hen the above conversation took place Dr. lilis was just going into the bouse, after an absence therefrom ot about an hour and a half. A General Feel ins; of Despair. The scenes in the streets to-day resembled those witnessed just after the President waa shot, when death was hourly expected. The places where bulletin are posted have been surrounded all day by throngs of people anx ious to hear the latest tidings from the sick room. Theret was a general feeling of de spair Ibe public ha all along shared the same hope that ha been apparent among the mem bers et tne President s omcial household. hoping with a blind faith that the President would get well, though none could give a rea son, pernaps, lor nis laith. 1 o-day, however, tbe most hopeful hereto fore, were anxious and despondent. No com fort could be lound in the bulletin. The people seemed to realize that it waa eve of some great calamity. in the several iuecutive Department the aa new irom the White House ha com pletely stampeded the employes, and but lit tle business was transacted in them to-day. Not only the clerks, but the head of the de partments, anxiously inquire for the latest news. The bulletins were eagerlv scanned. During the day Dr. Bliss telegraphed to the Secretaries' hourly bulletins from the sick room. These were posted np in the corri dors, and read with interest. Dr. .Boynton says he cannot figure out any change lor we better in the President s con dition to-day. If anything, he think the President is a little weaker. In hi opinion. everything depend upon the swollen gland and the course it may take, lhe great thing to be feared is, that it may alough off in portions; if it does, all is gone. If, on the other hand, it continues to suppurate and clear itself of the accumulating pus natural ly wunout aiougning, mere win oe ground tor hope. Dr. Hamilton left the White House shortly after 6:30 p.m- the evening examination being just over. He waa asked if there was anything that could be said. Dr. Hamilton replied: "There is a shade of improvement." In what particular, was started out for further inquiry. "Do not ask me anything in particular " waa the answer, cutt:n into the question. "I only say that there is a shade of improve ment. ' Dr. Hamilton then mounted his buggy and drove on. Midnight Dispatch. Incite O'Clock M. The information from the Burgeons' room is to the etlect that no noticeable change ha occurred during the last hour. The physicians apprehend no material change in the President s condition during the night Besting- Quietly at 1:30 A.M. Half-paM One O'Clock AM. The Presi dent rested quietly and has slept much of the time since 11 p.m. To new unfavorable symptoms have developed to indicate any material change since the issuance of the evening bulletin. A Cotton Corner Compromised. New Orleans, August 26. Dullness pre vails in financial circles, and State and city securities have declined some, owing to the absence of demand. The money market is be ginning to become stringent. Tbe cotton week has witnessed an end ot the August corner in cotton. A compromise between the "bulls" and "bears," stipulating for a settlement at Hie, brought the movement to aclose. The spot were held by the "bulla, and the re ceipts which have been coming in were pur chased in the country by the "bears" for de livery on contract. This state of affair re duced spot sales to firms, and caused them to make personal visits to tbe primary center from which their goods are obtained. Hoist with Bis Own Petard. St. Louis, August 26. Lewis Walker, a maker of fireworks, while in liquor and in a Btate of despondency brought on by poverty and poor luck, went from his wretched little home. No. 1150 Jackson street, at half -past 6 o'clock to night, to the river bank at the foot of Kosciusko street, and killed himself with some kind of explosive used in his busi ness, but exactly what is not known. The explosion waa very loud, being heard more than a mile, and mast have been very torci- . ble, as the man's body was mangled in the most terrible manner, hi legs and arms being broken and the entrails, liver, .heart and other organs torn out and scattered for yards around. He felt a wile and hve children entirely destitute. Cowardly Harder In Arkansas. Lrrn.E Rock, August 26. The Gaxtlc't Morrillton correspondence says: "A das tardly murder was committed near the Perry county line last night. It seems that two young men named Brannin and Morgan had a difficulty about two years ago and met lor the hrst time yesterday evening, lirannin extended his hand in friendly recognition. Morgan, in response, drew a pistol and shot Brannin twice. Brannin, not being armed, turned to run. Morgan followed and over took his victim and planted a deadly shot in his brain. Morgan fled, with the Sheriff and posse in hot pursuit. Warning. All bottlers of beer are hereby warned not to use our bottles bearing our monogram, C.

ONE WHO KNOWS, Or is, at Least, la as Good Position Any One to Know, Telia Us What Will be the Policy of Ylce-Presldent Arthur Should Fate De cree He Should be Called to Fill the Executive Chair. Lootsvuxe. August 26. Judge O. A. Lochrane, late Chief-Justice of Georgia and an intimate friend of Vice-President Arthur, in an interview with a Courter-Joamal re porter about the probabilities of Administra tion changes in fhe event of the President's death, said: Arthur is a man of wonderful adminis trative ability, and would be the President if he succeeded to the office." In answer to the question aa to whether Arthur would make any changes in the Cab inet, Judge Lochrane said : "He will do what Johnson did when he succeeded President Lincoln. He will change it." 'Who will probably be retained in the Cabinet?" "General Arthur is friendly toward Mr. Lincoln and Mr. James. I do not think he will remove either of them. Hunt. Mac Veagh and Blaine, however, may suffer." - wnat auoul Mr. Uonkling?" "If Oonkling desires it. I think he can cer tainly succeed some one of the Cabinet of ficers, bnt knowing that gentleman person ally, though not as well as I do General Ar thur, I don't think he will desire or accept a Cabinet position. In refusing, he will be controlled by a natural delicacy." "Do yon think it probable that Mr. Rob ertson will be removed?" "I am satisfied that he will. That is one requirement that the party in New York will make of General Arthur. He can hard ly refuse it. Party harmonization demand it." SEALED PROPOSALS.
