Every indication is that the wound is heal ing. Bulletins issued today and tonight did not vary in their tone of optimism and so cheerful was the patient that Mrs. Gaynor, after an almost sleep- less vigil at the bedside, left the mayor's side late this afternoon for a forty-minute outing by auto. Quartered in a larger and better lighted room at the hospital the mayor chats pleasantly with those who are allowed to see him and confidently predicts that he will be out in a few days. As yet he has not discussed the tragedy, or is he even aware of the identity of the assassin. It was reported that he had inquired the man's name soon after the shooting, hut this seems to have been an error. And although familiar with Gallagher's annoying letters and his persistent at tempts to obtain reinstatement as a night watchman in the dock depart ment, the mayor does not know that it was he who fired the shot. Aside from deploring that he should have been fired upon for doing his duty, he has in no way criticised his assailant and maintains a marked av ersion to discussing the incident. One of the most extended confer ences on the mayor's condition was held tonight, but at its conclusion there was issued merely a brief bul letin and no announcement was made as to when, if at all, an operation would be performed.

Gallagher, who attempted to assassinate him, still buried in his neck and mouth, but he has shown not one alarming symptom.

The policeman's number is in the possession of In spector Russell, and while there is little, if anything, to indicate the ex istence of an organized plot to take the mayor's life, the policeman will be tried for intoxication while on duty and with making indecent and incen diary remarks. Gallagher's statement this evening was his first talk concerning the crime. "While I will not say that I am sorry," he said, "I now hope the mayor gets well. But I wanted to teach high officials to regard the rights of subor dinates. I consider I had to shoot the mayor as a lesson to the country. I did what I did for personal prin ciples, and was not prompted by any anarchistic belief. I am sorry that Comissioner Ed There is a determination to make Gallagher an example of "quick Jersey justice." But it was decided not to law his case before the grand jury pending the outcome of the mayor's injuries. If the mayor recovers Gal lagher will be tried, charged with as sault with intent to kill, and may re ceive a maximum sentence of twenty years. If his victim should die the charge will be murder in the first de gree, the penalty for which is death. CONSULTABQITT P0STAL_BANKS REPRESENTATIVES OF GOVERN- MENT AND BANKING INSTITUTIONS.

But even theychosen thought of killing him had not been long in my mind. I reached no de cision until I got up yesterday morn ing. The paper said that Gaynor was going to sail for a vacation. That made me angry—to think that he should have a vacation in Europe while I did not even have a chance to work, much less get a vacation. So I hurried over the Twenty-third street ferry and made my way to the steamer. "My wrongs had proved more that I thought I could bear. Over and over I sized up my hard station in life and contrasted it with that of some other man—of Mayor Gaynor, who had wronged me, in particular.

Boston, Mass., Aug. 10.—Details of the conference at Warwick, R. I., on Sunday last, attended by Senator Nel son W. Aldrich, Senator W. Murray Crane of Massachusetts, and Secretary to the President Norton, became known in political circles today. It is said that Senator Aldrich definitely told his callers that stories that he had reconsidered his determination not to again run for the senate was without foundation. The senator said he had made all his plans to retire that he felt he had given a good part of his life to the government, and he had no desire to "grow old" in the senate. Mr. Aldrich went so far as to discuss his probable successor. It was learned that he, Aldrich, break ing a lifelong precedent of never issu ing a statement "under fire," has de cided to make a reply to the charges of Senator Bristow of Kansas regard ing the rubber schedule of the Payne Aldrich tariff bill. He has told his friends, who have urged him to reply, that in his political life he has never felt called upon to make statements in response to "malicious or unjust at tacks." With regard to the charges as to the cotton schedule, Senaor Aldrich will make a speech in the coming campaign in the "enemy's country" out west, in which he will defend the tariff law as a whole and will make a full statement regarding the cotton schedule. Senator Aldrich has been at work on bis reply to the rubber charges for several days. He has told some of his friends that he is proud of the part he played in framing this schedule and that he will make his course absolute ly plain. WILL EXTEND ROAD.

New York, Aug. 10.—The recent re ports that the Italian royal family have withdrawn all objections to the marriage of the Duke of the Abruzzi to Miss Katherine Elkins is without foundation, according to Miss Elkins' father. San Sebastian, Spain, Aug. 10.—De spite the threats of the Carlists the troops have been able to maintain or der here, and, while many arrests have been made, the worst of the trouble is believed to be over. Catholics are extremely indignant at the govern ment's repressive measures, as they claim that the demonstrations planned were not Carlist uprisings, but were arranged to show the disapproval of the people to the orders of Premier Canalejas, who so far has had the earnest support of King Alfonso. Gen eral Weyler's assignment to command of the troops in this district is taken to mean that the government does not intend to allow the uprising to suc ceed. The Catholics here believe that the efforts of the pope to settle the entire mattr will prove successful and that the end of the controversy is in sight. TRI-STATE WEATHER.
