A’jvfldt DHputch Li Vie ChU Mja Tribnnr,
New York, July ad.— The condition of thu
President again became Uto general topic of
public dismission throughout tho city to
day, itnd crowds gathered rmmndTho news
paper bulletins tb Itcnr the latest news from
Washington. Tim contradictory reports re
ceived in tho afternoon and bulletined by
some newspapers were of an alarming tenor,
and tended to reawaken Uto apprehension
nml painful suspense prevalent during tlio
earlier days, of* the ITosldenl’s snlferlngs.
In (lie morning an olllclul dispatch was
bulletined reporting that fragments of
bone had been taken out of Uto
wound, and, Inter, under the caption
of “ Washington, I siH) p. in.,” a dispatch
was bulletined to the elTeet that the Presi
dent's physlclahs were very reticent about
thb condition of the patient, but enough had
been learned to,\varmnt the statement that
they were ot tho opinion that tho patient
could not live while tho bullet was stilt in
his body, and that they had resolved
The language of the dispatch was calculated
to reuse the worflt fears, and It had tills im
mediate effect hi tlio minds ot.
many ot those Who read It.
Tlio more ' thoughtful hi tho crowds,
however, wore'rolucimil to give credence to an
startling a report, seeing that It had nut the
stamp of olllcinl authority. Hill It mtvmhoicss
aroused n tooling of groat uneasiness. Tills
news was not received or credited hi tbo Times
oltlce. It was posted, however, oh tbo lUorld
bulletin, together with other contradictory In
formation; evidently tho work of Bumo-syndi
cate ot liars, each ns iho latter Journal has rn
uuully nllndod to In denunciatory terms. It was
u cruel hoax, and seemingly designed to convoy
the Impression that tho President had reached so
grove n crisis Unit It tmd become necessary
to take tho last desperate chance of u danger
ous operation, which might result In his death.
This piece of-nows was but part ot a aeries of
Biiuli reports. ,
and false telegrams purporting to come from
prominent persons fit Washington wore circu
lated during tho day.ln Wall street by somo
heartless person for stock-jobbing purposes,
mid which represented thu President ns being in

situation. Thorn was a considerable crowd of
peoploat tho Filth Avenue Hotel tills evening
anxious to learn tho latest news. Conllttencu
was restored when, at H o'clock, a message was

A Domo or Carbolic Avid Administered
l*or CuNtor-011.
Tho sudden death at tho County Hospital of
William I). Faulkner, Lieutenant of Company I,
Second Ucglmeiil, was brlclly announced lu yes
terday’s paper. It appeared yesterday at Ibo
Coroner’s impiest that tho young man was tho
victim of n tocrlblu blunder madu by ouu
of tho nurses, who gave him a doso of car
bolic acid, mistaking It for castor-oil.
Faulkner had been employed at tho Hospital
sliieo last January, curing ter tho rnalu bathing
house and looking after patients newly received
Into tho Hospital. A few days ago hu was taken
down with tunsllUls, and was assigned to one of
tho wards of which Anton Kulek, a Herman 16
years of age, Is nurse. Marly Monday evening
the physician In charge prescribed a dose of
three toaspoonfuls of castor-nil, ouu of furtlllud
oil. and a single drop of croton oil, Alongubont'
W o clock Kulek mixed Ibo dose from drugs lu
vials nu a (able beside tbu patient’s cot,
and imulkner swallowed tho doso at a single
gulp. A moment later he was seized with burn
ing pains in tho throat mid stomach. Tho truth
Unshod upon him on tho instant, nud ho
shouted tun Mrs. Ulco that Kulek had given
him a doso. of carbolic add. Antidotes and
emetics were speedily administered, and Hr. Me-
Arthnrdid all In h>s power to sate him. Hut
thu poison had already got Into tho blood, and
in less than an hour thu beating of thu hourt
was completely choked up mid death ensued.
Carbolic add poisoning is very painful, and tho
young man sulfuretl terribly up to thu very mo
ment of his death. Thu deceased was a vert*
promising young man of about k’l years. His
father is out West, mul Ids mother Is dead. Tlio
solo remaining relative la this city is a brother,
who is studying medicine in tbu uilieo of Hr. C.
H. Davis.
- Ivulek, tbo nurse, was Piled with remorse nt
his fatal blunder. Though Inexperienced In
bundling drugs or medicines, (lurittu ttiu bovou
months lie Ims been nt tbo hospital no has boon
very steady and consuicinloiN In bis duties. The
bolt leg wore properly labeled. mid oarbollo ncbl
bus no resemblance to castor-nil. There was,
therefore, no excuse for bis mistake. Tbu Jury,
after fully ennsideimg tbu ease yesterday, coo*
eluded that tboru was nothing to bu gained by
holding him lo tbotiraud Jury tor criminal euro*
felt ilohply Ibo result of bis act,and
the Jury, considering that bis punishment was
already severe enough, recommended that bo bu
