Washington 2a = Dr Boynton
said this evening he thought there
had beeli very slight improvement
in the Presidents general condition
since 4 oclock Up to that hour
think he had gradually failed His
pulse raised early in the aftet noon
as high as 138 and remained at 130
a considerable time r thought he
could hardly live through the night
About 4 however rallied slightly
and since has fully held his own
In fact I think his general condi
tion is now a trifle better <
Have any indications of swelling
or suppuration appeared anyxvjiere
except in the wound and parotid
gland No
What was character ofthe pus
discharged today by the moqthV
It looked about the same it did
last night < I 11
Was it as healthy last night as it
was before that time No hOt
quite It was Jess in quantity and
slightly wateryln appearance
To what was that attributable
Probably to impoverished < Jdndi i
tion of the patient blood
i Do you think there is anything in
this changed character of the pus
discharged by the wound fo cruise
additional alarm No it only
shows the weak anddepleted condi
tion of the patienfcs > body it is an
evidence of inanition
What are the symptoms tonight
that you regard more favorable
Well the character his pulse is a
little better for o 1 thing and there
seems to be some improvement in
his mental condition which has I
been brighter since 4 than be
lore that time But of course this
changefor the better if it i can be so
called is very slight
Up to 10 tonight there had been
three changes In the Presidents
condition to be noted Early this
morning everything was bad It
could not be worse without imme
I diate death Later in the forenoon
I there was a rally Thit was the
first rally The
I rally however was
very feeble and did not continue
long eDOugh to even fully send up to
a high mark the buoyant feeling
generally to be found under most
adverse circumstance at the White
House After a short rally during
the forenoon came the midday bul
letin It was bad very bad It
showed a weakening in the whole
system That he was worse than
at the same hour yesterday was ad
mitted by physicians The change
for the worse became more apparent
as the afternoon wore on Shortly
before 3 oclock his sleepiness in
creased and the President appeared
in a comatose condition Such con
dition was evidence of well devel
oped blood poisoning which he un
doubtedly has His pulse ran up to
188 with a corresponding increase of
I temperature Then followed the
administration of stimulants tu
undo the sleepiness Wmsky to the1 i
amount of five drachms at inter
vals Ind the yolk of an egg with
peptionized milk was administered
by entmata That wits the second
change The administration of
stimulants had its effect upon the
pulse It went down but the
sleepiness continued all1 I despite
the stimulants he was unconscious
in slumber for au unusuallylong
pen d during the afternoon With I
the subsidence of the pulse the doc
tor announce a more favorable con
dition and the G30 bulletin as Dr
Hamilton expressed it showed a
shade improvement That marked
the third change up to lu oclock to
The greatest danger now is that
the President cannot be gTveajSuf
Jioient strength to carry him along
sp the more fatal conditions of
blood P9isoning may be wardedoff
He is i so weak and his blood soiui
poverished that it seems almost im
possible to successfully overcome
the dangerous complications which
have followed each other fast and
fastor Last night the hurl wh g
abs Ss broke inside and pus was
discharged through the ear All
efforts to control the abscess seemed
to avail nothing The break inside
was admitted to be a most dangerous
sign One of the physicians said
before it occurred that it such a
contigency should arise he did not
think the President could suryive
Again last night the President be
came anxious and worried on the
subject of being removed Mrs Ed
son was with him The Piesideut
said Where is Bliss In the
next room was the reply After an
imnatient movement the President
saiaGo and tell him l to come here
Tell him I want to be removed to
my own bed I wont stay here any I
longer After considerable trouble
Mr Edson quited him and he went
to Sleep for a few minutes It will
be remembered that when ur
Hamilton cut the gland the otljer
day he did it in order to let out the
accumulated matter fearing it
might seek an outlet elsewhere and
possibly go through the ear The
swelling of the gland hasnot gone
down perceptibly
ALiQYeagh and James have been
most widely divergent in their view
fbri the past three weeks James
has ixut up hope and the attorney
general has been despondent To
day these two gentlemen came
nearer being in coincidence with
eacliotner than heretofore They
arc il fact not very far apart in
The attorneygeneral after being
told by the physicians about the
bursting gland and being made ac
quainted with other features of the
case summarizes in saying the situ
ation is very critical Postmaster
Geiieral James after talking with
the surgeons puts the diagnosisrrof
his opinion in the words Improve
ment not impossible J
The ground upon which tkejay of
hope which at 12 oclobk lias shed
its light around the White HOuse
has for the corner stone of its foun
dation the free and natural suppu
ration from wthe inflamed gland
The r Hefr oj3Bequeiit upou the Qat
flow of matter which had accumu
lated is not only perceptible but
very marked There J hangs the
thread of hope The gathering at
the White House forthe noOn bul
letin was unusually large Talk
ing in the private secretarys
room went on iIi undertones The
crowd got impatient As Usual
there were those on hand to say the
delay was the sign of a bad bulle
tin There was a rapid break for
down stairs with the bulletins as
they were distributed Sergeant
DinsmorjB had to stand at he stairs
and check the stampede of bulletin
holders toprevent too muqh noise
being made in the liurry to get out
of the house with the bulletin The
bulletin was as depressing as antici
pated The pulse had gone up ten
beats since morning The temp a
ure had gene np nearly a tentlvjind
there was no improvementi the
respiration Blissmaintained there
was no pycemia4ihat the p tis was
I healthy and not offensive that there
were no signs of other inflamma
tion of glands that even with the
worst aggravation of the present
symptoms he didnt expect death
He couldnt die inside of three days
at least
The scene today was like the
day after the President was shot
There was a general feeling of de
spair Boynton thinks him a little
weaker tonight if anything
Dr Hamilton said at 6 pm there
is a shade of improvement
A warm friend of the President
who has remained at the White
House during the period of his ill
ness spoke in the most bitter terms
of the InterOceans correspondent
and of the bulletins of tho secre
tary of state The gentleman averred
that Blames sources for obtaining
accurate information were more
limited than that of any other mem
ber of the cabinet He said none of
he attendant ph > sicians would talk
with Blaine since he had begun
sending forth sensational reports
and his telegrams to Lowell were
predicated upon his individual opin
ion of the case rather than upon in
formation obtained from the proper
1 L I I i
authorities He said Mrs Garfield
yrts greatly wornedby the despond
ent view of her husbauds condition
taken by the secretary i
London tThe Queen expressed
deep regret on learning of the re

About 7 oclock this morning the

This information though meagre
was discouraging It was snbstan

1050 am General Swain inter
viewed b a r reporter at 104 am
said the Presidents pulse had vaiivd
a good deal since the morn ng dress
ing The least exertion or aiv
slightmovement of the body was
enough to increase its frequency so
although its average rate might not
change a great deal it was occasion
ally higher for sbort periods The
swollen parotid gland he said con
tinues to discharge through the ear
and through the incision made sev
eral days ago and this discharge
seems to afford relief The surgeons
still hope that the nourishment
which the patient takes will sustain
his strength and keephim on the
present plane of vitality until the

All the members of the cabinet
eameto theExecutive Mansion at
9 am and most of them are still
here They were generally more
reticent than yesterday with regard
to their views of the situation
Secretary lVi dom said it was
useless disguise the fact that the
morning bulletinwas very discour
aging He was not Ieapy however
himself to say the case was hope
less He entertained hope and will
believe toihe end that the President
will Jive Postmaster General
James would only say while there is
ife Ihereis hopo AttorneyGen
eral MacYeagh deelinedfo converse
upon the situation but admitted
thai f it seemed to him less hopeful
thIS morning
At noon Bliss said I think the
President is no better than yester
day and that is about the same as
saying he is worse because the lon
ger he goes on this way the less arc
his chances He has not failed a
great deal since 7 oclock His
greatestdepression is in the morh
ng His pulse during the forenoon
was from 110 to 118 I think he
realizes his condition to a certain
extent He has inquired abc ut his
pulse and the gland trouble several
times today I dont think he has
given up hope of recovery He I
seemed more discouraged this morn
ing than usual which probably in
duced the physical depression His
mind seem to react unfavorably
on his body He asked how he was
and Mrs Garfield and I gave him
reassuring replies That seemed to
brace him up as he soon rallied
His mind is absolutely clear and
much better than yesterday He
understands everything that is said
and done about him The parotid
gland has not changed much It
continues to discharge through the
ear rather more freely No other
glands are affected and there are no
other suppurations except the gland
and wound The pus indicates a
trifle more depletion of the system
I think yesterdays slim chance has
grown slimmer
You still hope for recovery Yes
I hdpe for it
