While House (o tho railway station hi
a Treasury wagon, and nothing that pa
tience, ingenuity, or thoughtful solicitude
can suggest has been left undone to make
the removal as easy and little hurlful to the
patient’s condlllonas possible. He will be
conveyed from the depot at {Washington to
l.ong llranch In a car specially prepared,
over a track covered with sawdust, ami
drawn hy an anthracite engine, so that
there shall Im the least possible amount
of noise. The patient himself ex
hibits great anxiety to be removed, amt the
physicians hope for the best results oil ac
count thereof. That their hopes may he
realized, will be tho earnest prayer of the
Nation.
Cloudy weather, occasional rains, vari
able winds, and stationary or lower tempera

Nineteen persons were Pilled end twonty-

Tin: SAxon Minister of Justice Ims issued
a decree declaring that In the future the pub
lic olllces throughout Urn Kingdom of .Saxo
ny will not be closed on tlio anniversary of
Uio capitulation at Sedan. The decree nat
urally enough attracts considerable atten
tion in France and Germany.
Tiik North Qmmn Gazette, Bismarck’s
organ, stated a few days ago. that “those
who supported tho Emperor supported the
Government.” The statement Ims produced
a rather unanimous protest from tho German
Liberal press. It is regarded us questioning
tho loyalty and patriotism of tho Liberals.
Trn men have been arrested at Mlllstrect,
Cork, In connection with the recent “Fenhm
raid ” for arms In that vicinity. In Limerick
City tlio police and military have been eon
lined to their barracks. A stratagem by the
“rioters” to decoy them therefrom failed;
otherwise there would ho some bloodshed.
Pat Qoikx, a brutal wlfe-bcator, was sent
to jail yesterday by Justice Morrison because
lie could not pay a fine of SBS. Justice Mor
rison scums to have a more manly detesta
tion of scoundrels of Quinn’s stripe than
have tlio other Chicago Justices. Justice
Morrison’s head Is obviously level, and his
heart is evidently In tlio right place.
(lAJinKTTA, in a speech delivered at Xcu
bourg, Prance, Sunday night, said that, “ if
France had more steadfast hearts, ami if
virtue, patriotism, independence, and dis
dain for more material enjoyments had more
largely prevailed,”• Urn disaster of Sedan
would have been wiped out. The speech will
bo interesting reading for the Germans.
At tbo mooting of the Uoiml of Commis
sioners for Cook County yesterday Messrs.
Frank Edwards of Xorthfleld, John X. Hills
of Lnko View, and Jacob Antes of North-
Held were elected Toll-ltoml Inspectors, and

noticeable (hat among those elected on the

one in which (Jarnbcltu was. defeated.
TwocAn-i.oAPHof ginssblowcrs, with their

The ftrrivftts yesterday and those expected

Since 'Tuesday of last weak,tho weather In
Oreal Britain has been cfetnly, cold, mid
rainy, with intermittent sunjdilne. The cold
has had thcetfeetof preventing the sprouting
of grain, hut It has also retarded Hie ripen

there have been frosts which have caused
considerable damage. The crop reports from
Ireland.have been by no niediw favorable.
Avoon Khan declare* that he ha* aban

this i* n clumsy plan to gai ns many rllles ns
possible, and Intimnlu UmtAyooh does not
menu what lie says. Tho interpretation put
upon Ayoob’s aetimi shows, however, that
the Afghans are nut greatly in love with the
British.
bit K. Li.ovu Hou'AiiD, physician at the
Quarantine Hospital at Ihdtimoie, was ac
cidentally drowned Sunday. Jlo was on a
steam tup, ami as the tug neared tho wharf
ho triad to Jump on the pier, but made a
misstep, fell into tho water, striking his head
against tno pier. When taken out of the

of Maryland. '
Two nitmukih of tho Nihilist Journal, tho
UTH of the People, havo been Issued at Si.
Petersburg. They contain notices warning
sides of tiio terrible fate which awaits them,
a list of donations to tho Nihilist fund
amounting to 4,000 rubles, also the names
of 400 Nihilists arrested since November.
The inif. of the People also contains an ar
ticle threatening tho C/.nr and condemning
ids policy. ■
Ykstehday was Uie hottest day of the
season In Washington, and the Intense heat
told on the President, as might have
been expected. His pulse and temperature
were higher than for several days past.
Otherwise there was no spe.ciul change In ids
condition. It is expected that ho will today
ho removed to Long branch, where It is
iiopcd the sea air will have a good clTcct on
him. Such is the substance of Secretary
blalno’s dispatch to Minister Lowell last
evening. mmm '
Tm: London the organ of the
educated and thoughtful ’fortes, says that
no greater calamity could happen to the
Conservatives than to take olllco on such a
platform as that on which Mr. .lames
JjOWther and Sir Hcorge Elliot were elected
lust week. It goes on to suf that unless tho
Tories uro prepared to advocate protection,
neither election can bo regarded us an un
qualified victory. At tho same time it says
tho Liberals cannot afford to disregard the
double defeat.
The attorneys for tno school-book publish*
in}; lirm of Sherwood & Co. tiled a bill in
Judge Jameson’s court yesterday to re
strain the Englewood School Hoard from
changing the text books used in tho
schools of. tho district over which
they have charge. The injunction Is asked
for on the ground that the books cannot hu
changed under tho Statu law, a snfllcient
number of years not having elapsed since
their adoption. Tho charges made against
Mr. Kimmuy, a member of tho board, by Mr.
Woodard are also set forth in detail.
Bishop Xui.ty, of Meath, next to Arch
bishop Cruise perhaps tho ablest member of
the Irish Homan Catholic hierarchy, says
that tho Liberal Government passed tho Lund
bill only when It could not witli regard to its
own safely and dignity bo withheld, 110
says that the true spirit of tho (iovornmunt
in its dealings witli Ireland is best shown "in
its persistent persecution of tho men who
nuulo tho passing of tho Land bill necessary. 1 *
Tho rejection of Dickson, tho (ihulstonlan
candidate for Tyrone, Dr. Nnlty says, will
show Gladstone that "lie cannot witli im
punity trifle witli tho wishes of tho Irish
people.”
Übuaui.e reports from Port Apache and
Fort Thomas leave no doubt that the reports
of tho Indian massacre in the vicinity of the
former plain had no foundation In fact.
Gen. Carr amt tho greater portion of Ids com
mand are yet alive, and cun hold their own
until reinforcements arrive. Thu casualties
number seven—one attlcer, Cnpt, Iluntig, and
six men. It appears that on tho morning of
Uie ’-Will nit. Gen. Carr witli a force of 105
men, Including Indian scouts, and six ofll
eers, left Fort Apfiche with tho Intention of
arresting an Apache who had
been endeavoring to stir up the tribe to revolt.
The command' reached Clbicn, forty-live
miles west of Fort Apache, on the :knh iilt. t
and found 000 Indians there. Tho medicine
man was arrested without resistance, and the
command began to retrace Us steps. Some
Indian scouts who had left their own camp
and came into Gen. Carr’s camp wero ordered
to leave, They refused to do so, but turned
aiidtireHl killlngCnpt. Ilentig. The right thou
became general. Our troops formed a skir
mish line, auddofondod themselves until dark,
after which they retreated to Fort Apache,
where they wore defending themselves at
last accounts against tho assaults of
Uie redskins, and anxiously awaiting rein
forcements. The casualties among our troops
number only seven—Capt. Ilentig ami six
men—Privates Baurdaggur, Sullivan, Living
ston, Miller, Farrar, and Bird.

a well-to-do farmer residing near Bellevue,

PREPARATION
Foil A MOMENTOUS .lOUUNBY,
Sfvelul DUoateh (t The t’liieutjo Tribune.
Washington, 1). C., Sept, ft.— lt Ims been
a day of feverish anxiety ami of active prep
aration nt the While House. Unless Uie
statements of tho physicians were tmtlrely
false, within twenty-four hours the hazard
ons experiment of removing the suffering
President was to bo made. Vet last night
he passed a bad night There were great
liuelnaKons In his pulse and lie was restless.
The talk about his removal had excited
him, and during the night, at intervals,
despite tho protestations of Ids attend
ants, he • was anxious to talk about
the arrangements. He wanted to know
when he wits to be moved; how it
was to be dune; how ho was to bo taken
down the stairs and from the White House
grounds to thu ears; how he was to he
placed in tlie car. and how the car was to be
equipped, and it was not until after
thk HUitur.uNs had hives vehy positivj:
Assim.vxciis
that they would not change their minds, and
that huwusto be removed, that ho could
rest. Even then his rest was lltful and fever
ish. This morning he was very weak, so
weak that no one would ever think of
lifting him off that eot and carrying
him over 200 miles on a railroad, if a council
of eminent .surgeons hud nut said that to re
main was death. What is it, then, to go?
Is it life? That is tho hone, but not the cer
tainty. Still, lie was no worse tills morning
than yesterday. He was surely weaker, but
Increasing weakness too long continued
must mean collapse, lie breakfasted upon
beefsteak and chicken broth, and retained
the food. Besides, tho stimulating enomata
are continued, and contain
laiiobh (juastitiks op whisky.
All tho stimulants tho President could bear
have been forced upon Ills stomach for tho
last week In tho hope of strengthening him
sufliclently to enter, upon this dreaded and
fateful journey. As the day proceeded the
President did not grow better. In fact, ho
was much more restless, and the fever in
creased until—at noon—the temperature had
gono to ono degree above normal, and ids
pulso had run up, the doctors said, to 114—
we know not Itow much more. Besides,
ovary moment of tho morning, when tho
doctors did nut succeed hi restraining him
from asking, lie was

mid of the means provided to effect It. 110
was particularly anxious tills morning,
among other tilings, to know how ho was to
bo taken from the curs at Long Branch to
the cottage, where lie is to stay, and lie
seemed pleased to learn that a track was be
ing built so that lie could ho taken on tho
cars to the very doors of tho Franklin cot
tage. All eirovts to (iniut tho President dur
ing the morning seemed unavailing. Tho
first tiling hu usked Dr. Bliss, when the hit
ter entered Ids room this morning, was:
“Well,
IB THIS THE I.AHT DAY IK TUB WHITE
HOUSE?”
a question which, to those who read it, can
scarcely seem other than pathetic. Dr. Bliss
vainly sought to quiet him by saying that
there was no necessity for Immediate re
moval, as lie was doing so well, but the Pres
ident was not la be put olf, and said: “No,
no. 1 do not want any more delay." A
group of notaolo surgeons chanced to he to
gether when the story of the President’s in
tense longing to leave tho city was told.
TIIKV SHOOK TIIKIU IIKADS MOim.NFUM.Y,
and said that they feared that that desire was
similar to Uio symptoms which occur with
consumptives and others as Urey are nearing
their end, and wish to reach their homes.
But Uio President's physicians took no such
mournful view of Uio President's interest in
Ids removal, and certainly no one could from
their manner Infer that they thought that
this may, in fan, be the President’s lust day
In Uio White House. To them it scorned us
If lie was entering upon *u Journey for recu
peration, Uie routeof which was llxed and Uie
time of which was known, and that it was a
question of but a few months or weeks when
he weald return again to be oueo more Uio
President of Uio United Slates.
AS TIIK AFTKIINOON IMIOUIUttSKD,
the President grew u little better, his pulse
fluctuated less, although it remained still
iiigii. The evening bulletin while not ex
actly Uie kind of bulletin fbat one would
look fur as to a person about to enter upon a
considerable Journey, still showed some Im
provement over the morning bulletin, and.
whatever the bulletin might say or not say,
ttie work of preparation about tho White
House and at tho depot dearly showed that
tho President was to bo removed within tho
next twenty-four hours. Tho work of prep
aration
AT TUB DEPOT
for the President’s removal commenced Inst
night at midnight. Thu laborers then, with
picks, khovets, and lanterns, began to prepare
to lay a track from below the Baltimore it
Potomac depot, on Sixth street, to Pennsyl
vania avenue. Nogrndlne wustobedonc. Tho
sleepers were laid directly upon tlie cobble
stones. amt tho track then was most care
fully ballasted. The object of this Is to avoid
the extremely rough pavement between
Pennsylvania avenue and tho Sixth street
depot, which, to tho disgrace of the city and
Congress, Is one of tho worst pieces of pave
ment in Washington. It was 'over that
terrible, rough road that tho President's
Wounded body was llercoiy driven more than
nine weeks ago, when every turn of tho
wheel gave to the wounded President mortal
pain. Another reason for building tho track
Is that the President need not be carried
through the doors and gates of tho depot and
have forced upon him tho terrlblu memories
of the tragedy of July g.
TIII2 PHYSICIAN* AND FAMILY
did not curd to run tin* risk of taking tho
President through the very door which ho
wus about to pass when he fell wounded by
(lulleau’s bullet. The track was laid with
the greatest care. The colored laborers, os
they tilled In the ballast, did not have the
usual air with which they jTVe accustomed
to perlonn their dally labor. There was a
solemnity about them. They seemed to feel
that every stroke they gave to the yielding
gravel might make it more possible for the
wounded President to pass without pain,
ami they rammed the gravel down with a
will.

of perspiration from Ids forehead If hu
thought they could get thd truck smooth

AT TUB WHITB HOUSE
the preparations have proceeded with like
activity. Kurly In the morning curious
looking boxes In considerable numbers were
sent to tho urlveto part of Die house. It
wits soon learned that they were designed to
carry the surgical Instruments and tho other
necessary apparatus of tho slck*rootu.
Trunks and valises were brought lu from
the storerooms, and the servants were en
gaged in making hasty preparations for the
trip. There was to ho a double departure,
for tonight young James and Harry
Onrlield left to enter Williams College,
the ultna mater of their father. The
lads seemed to feel their situation. Their
countenances were grave, and the passers-by
as they respectfully made way for them
could not but feel that the two young men
. were just about to start upon a career as
possibly their distinguished father was about
to end one. For.hopefully as all endeavored*
to look upon tho situation, there are mare
who fear the results of this journey, or, at
least, a fatal Issue In the President's case,
than there are who are conlident of his re
covery.

Thu night Is a singularly beautiful one.

noxious vapor from the mohirial Hals, giving

and look like upturned earth. Thu trees

test day of tho year, for the lntun.su heat and
dry weather have withered tho foliage. About
the gates there are but fmv waiters, as the
evening bulletin of tho physicians hasenused
tho public to believe that tho President will
not be taken away until morning. Mean*
while, it Is known that lie

transported to tho train, tho surgeons will
take tho risk whenever the President shall

was first mentioned to Mrs. Garfield she ex
pressed her disapproval, and said that she

to have the Associated Press reprcseutaUvo
