greatly interested in the President
on account of his former interest in

Philadelphia 25Dr Agnew re
turned from Washington oday He
declined to be interviewed In re
ply to the question whether it is true
that the glandular swelling in the
Presidents throat resulted from
fever produced by septic mia and
that upon the patients power to re
cuperate from exhaustion produced
by fevor would depend his recovery
the doctor replied That is the
whole case He declined to predict
what would be th result
New York 25It is conceded by
all journals that the situation at
Washington is grave The Sun has
the following from that city at mid
night One who is in a position to
know says that the pus is no longer
of a healthy character but has be
come thin and watery that it is the
exception now when the Presidents
mind is clear and that for the
greater part of the time it i1 anders
that there is hardly a possibility that
he can live and that the end it is to
be fe < red is not further off than
Saturday or Sunday lie has vital

least fortyeight hours
It has been learned tonight that
Mrs Garfield has not until this
afternoon realized that the Presi
dent was in a low state or that it
was possible that he would die She
was very much overcome when in
formed how very low he was and
that physicians feared the worst It
has been decided if the President is
not considerably improved in the
morning to notify the children and
other members of the family of his
serious condition

Physicians and attendants cannot

The President slept most of the
night awakening at intervals of half
an hour to an hour On first wak

for several nights past some men

when he was fully aroused and
occasionally he muttered in his

Signed D W BLISS
But very little information was
obtained direct from the physicians
concerning the condition of the
President this morning prior to the
issuance of the morning bulletin
The absence of all reference on the
bulletin to the g neral condition of
the President and the parotid swel
ling was at once noticed and com
mented upon by those waiting for it
The siuir tion is considered by many
as less hope il l than it was last
night at midnight smiThy others as
more so AttorneyGeneral Mc
Veajtfi pronnced it as extremely
critical and when askedthis morn
ing how long he thought this sus
pense would continue he replied
God only knows PostmasterGen
eral James and Secretary Hunt tel
egraphed to Thurlow Weed that a
gleam of hopeat 10 am comes from
the siTgeoas His symptoms are
no worse improvement isnot
impossirJlQ DrJSlfss chne out of
tiny surgeons room rilximt 980 Jthis
morning and telegraphed to his
wife that the President was a
little better than last night
In reply to interrogations he said
the pulse this morning was less fre
quent and that the parotid swel
ling had broken into the right ear
and was discharging through that
orifice The patients mind was
clearer and he conversed rationally
with the surgeons about the condi
tion of the inflamed gland He par
took of food which seemed to be
grateful to him and his general con
dition appeared to be a little im
proved The doctor expressed him
self as hopeful that the swollen
gland would be relieved by the dis
charge through the ear and that he
would pull through thereby without
much change
Executive Mansion 1040 am
Secretary Kirkwood came out of
the cabinet room a few moments
since and in reply to a question
asked by the reporter of the Asso
ciated press gave the following
statement of the Presidents case as
he understood it this am I have
never thought he said until last
night that the President would die
but the information we received
from the surgeons late in the even
ing was of such a character as to
leave very little room for hope The
danger which then seemed most im
minent was the danger of the ab
sorption of unhealthy pus from the
swolien parotid gland The mental
disturbance and the increased pulse
seemed to indicate that this process
of absorption had already begun
and that it was poisoning the blood
and this was acting upon the brain
and heart Taking up a small egg
shaped piece of sponge which lay
on the reporters table hecontinued
As I understand casefrom what
the surgeons told me the Presi
dents right parotid gland is in some
respects like this sponge Every
where through it there are little
cells or pockets in each of which
there is an accumulation of pus
The incision which was made the
day before yesterday pierced one of
these pockets and released the pus
which that particular one contained
but that did not drain the others
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 the pus retained in these
small cavities would become un
healthy and as I before said result
in acute bloodpoisoning The doc
tors told us however last night
just before we went home that
they had not given up the hope of a
favorable change during the night
md the surgeons think this morning
that there has been such a slight
change for the better as Dr Bliss
hoped l for The breaking of the
suppurating gland into the cavity of
the car will it is thought afford
more relief than could be given in
any oilier way and therefore re
garded it as a favorable symptom
The discharge through that channel
seems to be free and the pus is thus
far of a healthful character and the
patients mind this morning is
clearer than late last night showing
that there has been no blood
poisoning of consequence from the
gland as yet Taking everything
into consideration I think there is
reason this morning for a little more
Executive Mansion 4 pmpr
Reyburn reports at 4 pm that the
condition of the President continues
extremely critical There has been
no marked change for the worse
since noon but the pulse is rather
higher and feebler His vitality
seems very low There is no appre
hension of immediate death but
there is on the other hand nothing
as yet to strengthen the faint hope
ofa rally which the surgeons still

Secretary Lincoln upon coming
out of the cabinet room this morn
ing was asked what he thought of
the Presidents condition Well he
Said there is just enough encourage
ment this morning to revive the
faint hope which I bad up to Last
night that the President would pull
through From what the surgeons
told us yesterday evening I received
the impression that the swollen
parotid gland had very much the
character of a severe and dangerous
carbuncle which was enough of it
self to bring a well man very low
even if it did not cause his death
With this impression hope pretty
much left me this morning How
over I feel again a little encourage
Upon what ground Well the
inflamed gland I am told looks bet
ter than it did last night and it is
discharging quite freely through
the ear This the surgeons regard
as favorable and it seems so to be
I think too the general condition
of the patient is a little improved
today His mind acts better and
grasps ideas more readily than last
night Then there has been this
morning none of the incoherence
of speech which was then notice + r
If he was getting worse I do not
think this would be the case Upon
the w JOt therefore I think we are
justified in reeling slightlymore en
couraged The case is not entire
Doctor Woodward upon being
asked at 11 oclock whether there
was any reason todAy for increased
hope replied tlfere is rertaifriv no
reason for less l hope The jfagls be
ing virainedquftefreely from the

ls there any danger that pus will
find its way down the throat 1

in the face and draining through
the ear will take the pus from the
Blaine who has just left the Ex I
ecutive Mansion says the surgeo i s I
are still f eling a little more hop

case than they did last night on ac
count of the continued outflow of
pus through the ear The general
condition of the patient however
has not he says materially changed
During the morning the pulse has
been fairly steady but is i now a little
higher than at 830

ington Pus from the abscess in the
President s face u now discharging
itself from the right ear and not
from the mouth What was sup
posed to be the pus in the mouth is
said to be a collection of mucous
matter which gives the patient con
siderable trouble His throat is
kept open by gargling which causes
a considerable expenditure of force
Physicians still cling to the hope
that his strength will continue suf
ficient to carry him through Soft
ening of the gland lessens the ten
sion of the skin on the patients
face and relieves him somewhat
from pain
InterOceans Washington Dr
Hamilton says the physicians have
a gleam of hope Tins comes from
the fact that the swollen gland is
suppurating through the ear A
few days ago Hamilton said by
lancing the gland it was thought the
danger of suppuration through the
throat could be avoided It is pre
sumed this ear suppuration is re
garded as hopeful because the gland
has not suppurated in the throat
It is reducing the nausea and strang
London 2GThe Lancet says
When it is borne in mind that in
cases of starvation death super
venes when the loss of twofifths of
the original weight has occurred
the fact that President Garfield has
lost eighty pounds is alone sufficient
to excite serious apprehensi We
cannot but regard the parotid swel
ling or abscess as of serious import
Although it would be exaggeration
to speak of his recovery as alto
gether beyond hope speedy improve
ment is necessary to avert the
worst results 1 t

room is of a more peaceful charac
ter Dr Bliss in particular buoy

from the glandular abscess is a very
hopeful sign and if the stomach
holds out Relieves the crisis will
be passed He says the general con

News Washington Notwith
standing the unfavorable aspect in
the Presidents case the city is re
in quiet For a week there
h is been a settled feeling of despair
No crowd has gathered about the
White House gates as at the former
crisis The day bids fair to be one
of terrible anxiety The impression
is that there must be a change for
the better today or the worst con
sequences must ensue All condi
tions now demonstrate the effects
of blood poison and a decided reac
tion is the only hope The secretion
of pus always creates severe consti
tutional disturbances of the brain
The allocation of the President
yesterday and last night shows
the working of the viti
ated blood The question now
is whether this can be
overcome It will be a miracle if it
can and it is the only hope The
patient may retain adequate nour
ishment to sustain him while the
blood poison is being eliminated
How long that may take no one can
tell The chances are against this
hope Physicians however say it
is within the possibilities but the
reaction must come soon The Pres
ident was very restless during the
early part of the night and when he
did sleep it was for a few moments
only lie made no effort to I
talk All the members of the fam

did not undress but lay down en the

th in relieved the intense anxiety
which prevails at the executive
Mansion The discharge of pus from
the inflamed parotid gland tough
the ear which was regarded this I
morning as a favorable change and
one likely to afford relief has not
thus far answered expectations
The symptoms of the patient con
tinue Urgent and alarming and he
seeps to b3 gradually sinking
Executive Mansion Dr Reyburn
just before the appearance of the
evening bulletin saidin his onion
the patient had not lost any ground
shoe t e middle of the afte noon
It was feared he said fit one time
today that the whole paroted gland
would slough off in a suppurating
mass and if this should occur the
shock to the patients system would
almost certainly be fatal Later in
the afternoon Jowever the appear
ance of the gland was more reassur
ing and gave ground for the hope
that suppuration would be con
fined within the limits of
a simple although bad abscess
The doctor > said he could not yet
bring himself to believe the Presi
dent would die although he appre
ciated fully the gravity of the situ
ation The vitality of the patient
has been very low and it was ques
tionable whether he could hold out
much longer against the depressing
influence of the supperating gland
Nevertheless if they could tide
him over two or three days and get
the glandular complication under
control he would still stand a fair
chance of recovery Speaking of
the Presidents general symptoms
