Better things are expected today, and It Is hoped that tho en terprise will meet with the success which It really deserves. ______ A new railroad between Chicago and South Chicago Is projected.

Tun Pall Mall Gazette thinks tho Irish Land League will become ono of tho steady ing, and, In tho best sense of the word, one of tho conservative forces of tho Irish social system. Tho Gazette thinks that the Irrec oncilable element, which Is now upper- most, will soon find Us level. Tim London Times, however, thinks that no good can comoof tho Leaguo, and plainly intimates that It ought to bo suppressed, and Its lenders regarded os rebels and traitors, and treated as such.

Mr. MauVongh says tho patient la still very weak, that Uie weak ness Is duo to the condition of Die blood, and that while tho weakness continues It must cause great anxiety. Mus. Falw filed a bill In the Superior 1 Court of Cook County, askln* to bo divorced i from two husbaiuia. She was married tcv Denis Falvy at Lynn, Moss., in 1868, and lived with hlmfuurye&nt. Denis treated her rather harshly during most of the time. In 18T4 she met Edward Hines, who told her that Falvy was dead, Hines proposed to her al most In the same breath, and she married him. He treated her no better than did Mr. Vulvy.

During tho past year there were arrested In Toronto eighty-eight persons for Ul-trcutiiig their wives, slxty-lliree for neglecting them, and fifty-one for threatening to kill them. Judge McKenzie thinks (hat wifc-beallng Is mm of tho most brutal of crimes, and that tho brutes who indulge In It should bo vig orously dealt with.

The numbernt bushels of wheat exported during August of this year was M. 000.000, against 21,700,000 bushels ex ported In August, 18S0. Tiik Methodist Ecumenical Conference at yesterday’s session recommended Interna* tlona! arbitration as a means of settling dis putes between nations, and condemned any resort to war. The question of the press in relation to Urn Church was discussed. Dele gate Marshall, of Vicksburg, Miss., recom mended the establishment of a well-endowed Methodist paper which would do tor the Church what Urn great universities had done. Bishop McTyere, of Tennessee, said the re ligious papers were too narrow-minded. The majority, however, seemed to favor religious newspapers. Cot. Bovn, the Washington directory man, was walking along one of the streets of the National Capital yesterday with a hand some young lady. A carriage was pulled up at the curbstone just opposlt the couple. Out of this carriage jumped Mrs. Boyd, who Immediately proceeded 10 cowhide the hand some young lady. The bystanders Inter fered to protect the female victim of Sirs. Boyd’s wrath. Mrs. Boyd then ordered her husband Into the carriage. He meekly obeyed and was driven home.

The greater part of tho day was occupied In listening to tno rending of prlzo essays. The following ofllccrs were elected before adjournment: President, W. B. Cornell, Chicago; Vice- President, J. M.

An Ohio man was nominated for President of tho association, and, for some reason which tho members of tbo convention could by no manner of means understand, ho declined. Tho declination, It Is hardly necessary to say, created quite a sensation. There Is no Immediate prospect that Sergt. Mason will bo tried for shooting atr Gultcau. Gen. Hancock’s order convening a Board of Imiulry Into the cose Is by somo strange mistake dated Sept. 10, 1881—one day before Mason Is alleged to have shot at Gultcau; and two of the olheers appointed on the board-Capt. McGUcroy and Lieut. Kastman—are Incapacitated from serving, Inasmuch ns they will bo witnesses against him. Uls rather curious, too. that nil the members constituting the board are attached to the Second Artillery, to which Mason be longs. The military authorities are evidently not over-anxious to have Mason tried. Neither Is District-Attorney Corkhlll. Pluses Auikut Jones was convicted yes terday of murder in tho first degree, and tho Jury recommended a sentence of Imprison* nient for life. Jones was tried before, con victed, and sentenced to Imprisonment for fifteen years. Ills counsel moved for a new trial, and tho Supremo Court granted ono, with tho result already mentioned. In this connection It should bo borne In mind that Prince Albert Jones 1 trial cost tho taxpayers of Cook County 5f»,U00.

IMPORTANT STATEMENT OK THE MORNING liI'I.I.ETIK. SpttUl Dlrpdlch (o Tht Vhitago Tribune. IjO.no Branch, Sept. 15,—The President has passed a comfortable day. The Interest In his case centres in the morning bulletin in tho very Important statement which It makes and in tho manner in which that state ment Is mode. For many weeks the repre sentatives of the leading papers of the coun try stationed in Washington have Insisted that tho President was sntfering from blood poisoning—whether the particular form of that poison Is to be called scptlciemla or pyiemla. For os many weeks the doctors In the case have as posi tively denied the statements of the newspapers—denied them positively with emphasis, often with anger—and It was not until this morning, after an hour and a half of animated conference, that the doctors, OR A MAJORITY OK TIIKM, decided that tho time had come for saying that tho President was suffering from blood poison. This they do In an indistinct ami --guarded phrase, In which they say: M The various septic accidents which have for several weeks and do stilt complicate his case.” Tho Orst appearance of blood-poison, several weeks ago, was at tho time recorded In these dispatches, not os a “septic accident,” but os a natural result o£ the condition of the I‘resl dent’s blood, and these statements were made upon as high authority as that of the doctors who sign this morning’s extraor dinary and belated bulletin, and in mure than one Instance on the authority of these very gentlemen themselves. Some of them privately admitted the septic condition of the blood at the time it llrst manifested Itself, several weeks ago, but on account of what Is culled “mudical ethics,” or for other reasons which do not have any relation to candor between man and man or between the surgeons of a wounded Presi dent and llfty millions of people, they chosn to appear to give an oßlelal denial to such reports. Tho newspapers wore right then. The doctors aro right now; yet, within three days, tho surgeon In charge has said, for publication, that the President had no blood-poisoning—that It was an entirely healthy sore. THIS FIIYMICIAN IS CIIAUOB THIS MOUNINO, over ills own signature, said, In effect, that the President had beau suffering from blood poisoning for'weeks. This result was not reached until after n protracted and ani mated conference, a statement of which will never Ik> made in mi olllelal bulletin. There Ims been a sharp difference of opinion between tho doctors us to the wisdom and propriety or tho necessity of telling the whole truth In the bulletins. While It may not bo said TUP. OFFICIAL UUr.I.KTINS IIAVK nF.ISN TIIUTIIPUI* It Is n fact that they have tolil half truths, ami have concealed some of the most Impor tant symptoms. The olllclal announcement of Unlay Uiat, weeks ago, blood-poisoning manifested Itself, Is an Illustration of this. The fact that up to this time no ohlelal stale meut has hoen made as to a complication of the lungs Is ANOTIIKU IT.t.USTItATIOS. The truth Is, the doctors have not been candid with the public. The question was brought to an issue this morning in the prolonged consultation. Ur. lloynton for some weeks has Insisted that the President has been suf fering from chronic pyiemiu. Ur. Agnow has privately said to a number of friends, and, among them ATronsKV-oKSKnar, mcavkadii wltblu a weak, that Urn President bad py nnnla, Urns practically eonllriulnß Iloyntim’a opinion. Dr. Hamilton la extremely rolloont, but It la known to those nearrat to him that bo agrees with Dr. Abuuw. Tliu cunlldouilal utterances i>l tlieso two ilnolora could not Ihj kept aocrot, and the fact that they held this opinion baa recently became known to ilia newspapers. Tlio conforoneo ot this mornlDß waa called for the speclllc purpose, amomr other tblmis, of docldliiß whether any atatoincnt could bo made upon the subject, and wbetbor, thereafter, tba surgeons sbould bo candid wllhitbo imbllc. Dr. Agnow coma from Philadelphia expressly lo attend tills couforence/Tbo press waa not Invited to tbla eunsuliallon, but It la known that the discussion was animated, and, at tiro end, I Dr. llllas, tba surgeon In charge, was outvotkii, . lie opposing any acknowledgment of pyannla. Agnow and Hamilton Insisted that Uie fact should bo stated, and, Aftuow and Hamilton curried the day. This Is tho llrat vote Umt has been taken slntoUie three surgeons- Harncs, Uoyburn, and Womlard—were dis missed. and It Illustrates the wisdom of their forced retirement from the case. Hr. Boyn ton said this morning that Uie bulletin an nounced that the pulse was 120 at one time lust night, because he hod yesterday admit ted that the puis? fffW day as high « 120. Dr, lUtj 2 Umt * lO hereafter the' Sjlc would have honest bnl- 1 hdins, nnd had so liitlo confidence In tlio hnllellns§§. ho had not read one for six weeks. STS rm: TitnK§s>croiw wr.nn msciiAimED because of*Scry important question they always vo/ -Uh Bliss against Agnow and Hamilton. it, liowover, has been Imposslblo longer to conceal the fact that tlio President la suirerlngfrom blood-poison. Thu Hcntlmontot' Uig medical profession lias within a few days, however, become to be near unanimous In support ot the pyiemla theory. Tiro symptoms are unmistakable. Tlio violently tlucluntlmc pulse, for instance, Is a sure indication of serious poison. The action of tho heart is weak and spasmodic. It works in spurts, whereas the pulse of n well man beats regularly. The statement by Dr. Boynton that the pulse has generally gone to 120 and over while It has been reported Insforo and attorns 100, Is a symptom, taken in connec tion with all the circumstances,which clearly POINTS TO PVXJIIA. Such being the case, the aspect from day to day of those local troubles which tho bulle tins designate ns the various “ septic acci dents ” of the case, Is u matter merely of subsidiary consequences. There may bo an abscess detected on tlio lung today or not. An operation may be performed to re lievo an abscess today or not. These aro Incidents, ami as such worthy of note; but they are only Incidents, nnd do not alteot tho real nature and progress of the case, mi. m.ISS ftTIM. MAINTAINS tlmt there Is no abscess on tho lungs. He says: “Three weeks ago, when the swelling of the parotid gland was at Its worst, It was noticed that the Prealdenthegan to discharge pus from the throat. There was immediate alarm among the nurses, who were sure that an abscess In tho lungs had formed. Several careful examinations were made, which con* vlnced ns that the pus expectorated came from tho throat and upper branches ot the lungs. Tho mucous membranes from the back of tho mouth down to tho lung seemed to be In an Irritable condition, throwing oft annul quantities ot pus, enough to moke him cough distressingly. It annoyed ns more because tho cough kept him from sleeping soundly than because we feared an abscess. Tin-: sunmcAi. rui.i: such casea as the President’s Is to look out for abscesses when there Is no Improvement In the appearance of the wound, which may give rise to septic conditions of tho blood. When the President was at his worst, an ab scess might have appeared in his lungs or elsewhere, and would have added to tho complications and dangers of tho case, but now the lime for that has passed.” HU. UOYNTON HA1I» TONICHIT that the President had acute pyiemlawhea he had the rigor, but that his vitality was so great he would probably overcome It. Then tho chronic pytcmla which now exists ap peared. It Is possible, ho thinks, that ho may overcome the difficulties arising from this condition If new complications do not arise too rapidly, as ho has conquered the parotid swelling, and seems now to have overcome the lung difficulty. Tho great trouble In the ease Is the average high pulse, which has continued ever since the disap pearance of the parotid, swelling. That average high pulse U a serious symptom, (len, Swalm said today that If tho President died It would be from starvation, lie takes food with tho greatest reluctance. • MinNinitT. Tho lights wore turned down early at El heron cottage. Late In tho evening Dr. Boyn ton sold that there was no change in tho President’s condition, except Uiat ho thought that the President has lost a little strength and vitality today. “septic accidents.” the I Vtttrm AuoclaUd Pens. WAshixotox, U. C., Sept. 15. —Diligent inquiry today failed to elicit any explanation of tbo phrase •* septic,” which was used In tbo morning bulletin, beyond the fact that It In dicated an Impurity of the blood, or, In other words, blood poisoning. Tilt. lIOYXTOX says ho understands the word “scpUe,” In tho bulletin, to mean pyiemlu, and that there may bo two or more small abscesses on tho right lung. The complication Is not growing worse, and. In nil probability, is re pairing. There is a danger, however, of the left lung being attacked. Dr. Aguuw says ho considered tho cessa tion of tho perspiration, which Ims been a very unfavorable symptom In tho President’* case, ono of tho best signs yet developed. 110 also remarked that there Is u febrile rise to night, but so light that no Importance Is at tached to It. UK. HAMILTON considers the President hi as favorable aeon dltlon tonight ns last night. «on. Swalui, describing Uie situation today, says the Pres ident has fully maintained all ho had yester day, and Is In ns good condition this evening as last,with nrobnblya Units gain instrength. This view was concurred In by Col. Kook well. Dr. Kuynlon, referring to the remark ably high average «r tlio President's pulse. Informed a frleutl tonight that, day la and day out, the pulse averaged Irani 115 to 117. Tlio Doctor thinks tiik pmauiß.vr's noum.u, pui.sk ranges between 7-1 and 70. Tho Doctor, while frankly admitting the uneortalnly of tho case, still sees his way out, and Is of the opinion that the President's vitality will prove onuul to the eiuurgonoy. All tho attending surgeons rolltcd before 10 tonight, and the two cottages occupied by tho President's family liiul attendants closed before It. At lust accounts tlio President was resting comfortably, with good pros pects of having a Qiilofnlght. Astlß breeze from tho northeast was blowing all day. to night about U It commenced to storm, and at lids hour (midnight) Uia weather Is very disagreeable dii. iimhs returned from Now York In tlio afternoon* and was preaunt at the evening dressing. The Doctor saya ho hnppoued to stop Into the Block KxcJmngu with a friend while In Now York, and when his presence became known ho was completely surrounded by brokers, anxious to hear the latest from the I’resl dent, and ho was ultorly besieged with In quiries. ' OFVIOIATi BUMiTCTINS. V A. M. Kuikiiok, Bopt. 15—0 a. jn.—At Uie morn ing dressing, at B:«0 today. tno President's temperature was 05, 4, pulse lIW, respiration ao.
