Everythiug Progressing Splendidly—The
President's Appetite Hsvenous-Feeds
Him—U.
Washington, August 19.—The Presi
dent has passed a splendid day. He has
rested well and had been without pain
of any kind. Dr. Bliss said at 9 o'clock
to-night that he has never felt more con
fident of the President's recovery than
WyHBKl Dim rtTwWl rUTOIUci a Ul V, BilU
the President expressed really no an
noyance from it. Said Dr. Bliss: This
difficulty has been overcome sooner,
than we had any reason to anticipate.
Usually these
Swellings Continue for Several Days,
but we seem to have subdued
the indammation already. The
President has not complained of the
swethng tod»y. As to bis stomach it is
doing admirably- 'Hie President baa
taken to day twenty-six ounces of nour
ishment. This consisted of koumiss and
of gruel which was made by Mrs. Gar
field. The gruel, I believe, is made of
corn meai, milk, and something else.
The President is very iond oi it, and it
is very grateful to him. He calls for it
oiteu, and
Mrs. OarHeld Prepares it vytn tier uwn
Hands.
The President says she has often made
it (or hiiu when he suffered with indi
gestion. and that she know* just how to
season it to his taste. Beside the twen
ty-six ounces of food taken in the stom
ach we have administered twenty ounces
of nourishment by enemata. This con
sisted *of beef extract and the yolks of
four eggs. This makes
Forty-Six Ounces 3f Solid Food,
the Piesident has taken to-day, more
than he has taken during anv one day
for three weeks. His wound is healing
rapidly. We can see that it is closing
up and it is ao longer a drain upon his
system. The President now has regular
spontaneous actions of the bowels. The
character shows that the food was well
digested. He was progressing finely at 6
o'clock a. m., and hi8 pulse was 96. lie
WHS sleeping nicely. His skin hat not a
break upon it and it feels soft. He no
longer has exhaustive sweats. He
iPerapired a Little When Sleeping,
but not enough to indicate weakness
The President expressed himself to-day
as feeling better. This afternoon he
asked, "Where's Bliss, I want bun to
five me a bath." He meant th«t he
wanted Dr. Bliss to sponge him off.
Dr. Bliss says the President has
not lost over sixty pounds, and
wnSft?not%uppo«c>a(liat Ke'hadTost
that much tlesh as his beard concealed
the thickness of his face. Bliss says,
too, that the President is not so weak as
is generally supposj<1.
The President Feeds Himself,
and when he drinks water-he takes the
glass in his band, raises it to his lips and
-lriuks without any difficulty. The
President is undoubtedly better to-ni<ht
than he was this morning. His wound
is not discharging much, but
all the p.ns there is flows out.
All his surgeons are now full of hope.
They say they feel that the worst danger
is over, because the weakness of the
stomach has been overcome. The only
thine necessary to build up the Presi
dent's strength is that he shall be able
to lake aud digest food and this he is
doinir- He now calls for his food regu
larly and often asks if he cannot have
more of Mrs. Garfield's gruel. This feel
ing of confidence prevails everywhere
now. _______
ANOTHER CHINK
With a Remedy for the President's Ail*
ment—Snatched and Placed in an Insane
Asylum.
Washington. August 1(».—Another
crank appeared at the White House this
morning about 7 o'clock. She was a
handsome woman, vonng looking and
gave her nam** as .Mary Louise Kemin
ger, of Brooklyn, X. Y. She says her
father aud mother live at 554 Broadway,
Brooklyn. She stated that she had come
from Paris especially to cure the Presi
dent; that she left Paris 40days ago, and
must see the President before 9 o'clock,
as she could cure him immediately. She
sat down on thecopingof the iron fence
around the White Ibfclse near the gate
and when a crowd surrounded her a
policeman ordered her away. Shequick
I v r'plied that she was not doing any
harm, and that the officer had better
•>nier- the crowd away. When told
roald not enter the sate, she gave
a small locket, very badly mashed, to a
gentleman s'anding near, and asked
him to carry it to the President at once;
that he would recognize it and order her
instant admission to his bedside. The
polite took her to headquarters, from
where she was sent to the government
insane asylum. W hileat headquarters,
it was ascertained that she was pecu
liarly drees*). About her waist $he

which she said she got at Manhattan

POMKBIME'S ASSAULT
Caused by Being Kicked Out of tne
White House
Washington, August 1#.—Dr. Bliss
says that I>r. Pomerine, of l>hio, who
was surgeon of General (ia> field's regi
j ment during the war, came here soon
! after the President aa* shot and asked
to be admitted to the President's room
I to see the patient. Bliss says he reulie.1
that it could not poeaibly do the Presi
dent any gosal te let Pomerine see him,
aad migfct do harm, bat lie promised
Poaierine toaubmit his request 'to the
other surgeons; that he did so
and they flatly refused to
assent to permitting any visit
from Pomerine. Dr. B.ies rep jrted ihla
decision to Pomerine a day or two later.
Savs Bliss: Dr. Pomeriue went to the
White House, went through the recep

Praaidtat^B room while his surgeon*

while Pomerine was beside the Presi

MOkEOF HIS UNPLEASANTNESS WITH

IS NOT SO CRA2V AS HE PRETENDS.
IH
THE A88ABSIN.
BiU of Correspondence Beceived by Wm
Prisoner.
Washington, August 19.—Guite>n,u
heretofore stated, has been engaged in
writing up his life, which he says will
make a book of about 500 pages, and
the episode of the other morning s jeme
not to h«v« interfered greatly with
work. In the paires he wrol* yesterday,
and which were handed to the officers,
be Bpeaks of "the late President Gar
field," and writeB of Mr. Arthur as
President of the United States. The
impression he has doubtless got from
the guards having been doubled and
the general aspect of the officers about
the jail.
The implement used byGuiteau turns
out, as has been stated, to be a "ehws
er," but instead of having been made
from a shoe shank, waa merely of
A Fiace or uorsei oprio*
about four inches long and three-fourths
of an inch wide, with a handle made of
paper wrapped with a common string.
It has one edge quite sharp. Mr. McUill,
the guard who was attacked, was a com
parative stranger to Guiteau, and has
not heretofore been brought in con
nexion with him. Mr. McCHII,
thinking from the appearance of
Quitean at the window that something
svas wrong, went to the cell and spoke
to him, and receiving no reply went in
juickly. Guiteau had been
Unusually JExcitad the Day Betore,
ind it is thought that not knowing Mr
Jill he became frightened and made a
ipring at him for his own protection
rom assault, and grabbed him. Guiteau
iemtjs having had the corset-steel at all,
)ut the officials are under the lmprei
lion that he had been using it jor some
ime for hie own ' purposes, and
teeping it out of sight. The
tenerally accepted theory is
hat the bed cots being steamed the
irst week of each month, at the
ast steaming when they were replaced
he cot froui some other cell in which
he cheeser had been concealed was sub
itituted for the one taken out. It is an '
•rdinary thiug to tind such things as 1
Inives Made of Shoe-Shanks and Corset
Steels 1
ibout the prison, for no knives are al- 1
owed the prisoners. Of coarse, when 1
ound such weapons are taken from the J
>risoners.
Since his incarceration there has been !
tothing seen by the jail guards to indi
ate that Guiteau would deatroy his life 1
iven if he had an opportunity, and the !
•ossession of the "cheeser" is not regard
d as auy indication that he intended to 1
ise it for any purpose exrent tn rleon !
[uite composed, and in his usual spirits. '
The Mail for the Assassin ]
iuiteau isabout equal to that of a Mein
>er of Congress. There has recently
ccnmulated about half a peck of postal (
ards and letters. So many come that it |
s suspected patties take this means of
advertising their business, expecting
hat their communications will be made
>ublic through the papers. Among the
joatal cards received recently are the
ollowing:
"Chari.ks J. GuirEAu: Will give you
v»00 per night to lecture after you have
lerved eight years in Dry fottuga*.
IVill advertise you as 'the great unhung,'
)Ut
Will Not be Besponslble for the Capri
cea of Judge Lynch."
Another from Corsicana, Texas, is as
ollows:
"Charlie,you hard hearted old villain,
[ wish you would come to Texas aud
;ry your hand on an old fogy we have
tiere. It woulu be doing a little good
for the evil yon have done to an inno
cent man."
Another, from Vincennes, Ind., has a
[>en picture representing "a hanging
hee," with the following: "To Eureka:
Bung Ooea the Trap and You Go to Hell "
Another represents a steam engine so
geared as to pull Guiteau, with ropes
attached to hands and feet. Guiteau is
represented aacrying,"Stalwarts,help:"
and on it is written: "You have no
board bill now, and I suppose you are
happy." The devil is represented with
a barrel ready inscribed: "Patiently
waiting; I'm corning."
Another has a collin inscribed,"Sacred
to the Memory of C. J. G., Assassin and
Villain,'' under which is "ChaB. J. Gni
tean's Proper Resting Place."
AUUlUOi iivui ,
15th oI August, 1881, id as follows:
"Comrade Guiteau: My heart swells
with emotion when I witness the perse
cution vou are compelled to endure.
You did my bidding nobly, ami verily
von shall have yoar reward such only as
1 am accustomed to bestow upon my
faithfnl agents. Should you need any
thing farther to render your present
condition more endurable I will send
seven legions of little black angels armed
with red-hot pinchers to make it pleas
ant for you. Yours until death, when
we will hare a happy reunion.
Sat as."
A Foetal Card Was Bece'ved from Qui*
teau'a aiktf r.
Mr?. F. M. Scoville, of Chicago. It was
received yesterday by Warden Crofker.
She wanted to inqnire about him, say
ing that the papers had ceased to speak
about him. This postal card was shown
to Guiteau last evening by Warden
Crocker. Guiteau said it was genuine,
and said: "Inform my sister that I am
well, ami am praying daily for the recov
ery of the PresHt-nt, ami that I regret
my deed. Don't Jet her know ot the oc
currence of this morning,as that is past,
and is of no consequence."
When District Attorney Corkhill was
here he visited him slraoet daily, gave
him a stenographer t« take down his
endless jumble of words and in various
other ways led Guitfau to think himself
an important personage. Hie picture
was tafcen and the wretch was sane
enough tojkuow it would be sought
everywhere, and this fed his vanity.
Since Col. Corkhill left, Guit»au, with
the exception of an occasional visit from
Warden Crooker, has been.
Treated as (he Other ^naoaera
He has been somewhat arrogant to his
keepers, but it did not change his treat
ment Some time ago he complained of
a head ache and ordered a band got for
it, which, not coming as promptly as be
thoopkt it ehould, be tore np hie pillow J
case for a bandage and as a pen nance
for the act bis next
MhI >u Made of Bread and W»ter, <
of which be complained to Warden
Crocker, ascribing that the value of the
pill*? caee should not be taken int > ac
count when it was made to relieve pain.
Finding be had sunk from his eminent <
position as an important State prisoner
to a common prisoner in the county
jail, the creatare doubtless devised the
attack upon the guard as an expedient
to attract public attention to himself. It
is to be hoped he may never know how
well the attempt succeeded.

NECK STRETCHING.
Execution of Charles Stockly for
the Murder of John Walker.
Rata via. N. Y , August 19.—Tlie ex
ecution of Chas. Stockly for the murder
of John Walker took place here to day.
The murder occurred on the 27th of
April last. Walker was ploughing in a
tield when Stockly deliberately walked
up and fired three shots at him, the last
one with fatal eflect. Stockly had been
employed by Walker as a farm hand,
find had sought, through Walker, the
marriage of his 16 year-old daughter,
Lizzie, but was refused both by the girl
■md her mother, and the only motive for
the crime was revenge. Since his con
viction the prisoner has feigned insani
ty, and at times acted like a maniac.
The Bailroad Kins'* Position,
Nkw York, August 19.—A gentleman
who enjoys excellent sources of infor
mation, owing, in part, to his official re
ations to various railways, says that W.
H. Vanderbilt has written a letter to the
presidents of the other trunk lines,
nhich has not been given to the public,
n which he presents a sort of ultima
urn. In this letter he states that the
•oncession of the "differential" rate in
avor of Philadelphia and Baltimore as
igainst New York, four years ago, was
lot intended as a lasting or permanent
irrangement. This is followed by an
irgument against the principle of
'differential" rates, and that its accept
ince as a finality would demonstrate
lis fitness to have charge of important
ind colossal interests. This informant
iays, further, that the remainder of the
etter is devoted to the question of
i reapportionment of the freight tonnage
•astward-bound from Chicago. Mr.
iFuisjgrbilt claims that the allotment by
;he LSKf
oads is not equitable in either ca9e He
lirects attention to the percentage
iwarded to the Grand Trunk, and says
hat the allotment is wholly dispropor
ionate to the facilities possessed by the
■oad and the apportionment to the other
ines, and in substantiation he quoted
:he pools reports to show that the Cana
iian company is now over forty ton6
short of its percentage. The letter, it is
illeged, takes ground, in conclusion, to
:his effect: That either the "differ
ential" principle must be revoked, or,
refusing that, the apportionment of
freight traffic from Chicago must be re
vised so to allow increased percentages
to the Michigan Central and the Lake
Shore railways. Under the present ap
portionment the Lake Shore received 2f»
md the Miclfigan Central 31 per cent, of
too whole.
Hoop Iron Manufacturer! In Conven
tion at Youngstown.
YorsfliTOWN, 0., August 19.— A meet
ing of the Hoop Iron Association, which
embraces all the leading manufacturers
of hoop iron in the United States, was
held at room No. 10 at the^Tod House
this morning at eleven o'clock The
following tirm were represented: kim
berly, Carnes A Co., Sharon; W llham
Clark A Co., Lindsay A McCutcheon,
find J. Painter A Sons, all of Pittsburgh;
Oartwright, McCurdy A Co., and the
Youngstown Rolling Mill Company, of
this citv. The association is officered by
James 'Cartwright, of this city. Presi
dent, and John L. Kennedy, of J. Iain
ter dtSons, Pittsburgh, Secretary. In a
talk with Secretary Kennedy this mom
in", prior to the meeting being held, he
stated to your representee that the ob
ject was merely to have a conference on
business matters, and not for the pur
pose of creating a l>oom in prices, as
there was a goo 1 market at present and
trade in a healthy condition. In re
gard to the importation of foreign iron
Kennedy said that little, if any, was
be in i.' brought in, as they could not suc
cessfully compete with American indus
try. The mating was * '"ost harmo
nious on*, and the inanuf icturer.lare
confident of a steady demand, which
insures constant work for their em
ploye*.
1 toub esome Bwito! m n
New Yofci, August 19.—John Abbott,
g*nera! passenger agent of the New
York, Like Erie and Western Railroad
Compaay, being asked if a strike
®f a serious nature had occurr<jd
a any point on the road, said: The
a tuation is this: Quite a number ol
switchmen in the Buffalo and Horne!lf
ville yards have quit work, and applied
for an increase of pay which the com
pany is not prepared to concede thera,
far the reason that they are beingpaiJ a
rate equal to that received by tbe same
class of employes on the New York
Central, the Pennsylvania and other
eastern railroad. As fast as the men
quit they are paid off and others hired
in their places. No disorder or inter
ference has occnrred, and while there
is some delay in passing freight trains
through the yards at Buffalo and Hot
nellsville, there is no detention to pas
senger trains. The Salamanca switch
men, who quit work yesterday, have
resumed this morning,
Bobbery at Wootter.
Wooirrca, 0., Aug. 19.—Last night
burglars blew open the Baft* ot Christian
Sorf. K«q , living on East Henry street,
securing as their booty f700ia currency.
Mr. Sorg is a wealthy retired farmer,
and bad bis safe in bis stable close by
bis house. It is supposed that tb« rob
bers secreted themselves in tbs stable
during the day, and when the fullness
of time had come went to work. Several
hundred dollar* is city bonds, notes and
other papers were taken out and scat
tered around the safe, but the burglars
concluded it' safer not to take them.
There is as yet not the least clue to the
I lucky cracksmen.
WORLD OF TRAFFIC,
AS REPORTED FROM THE GREAT
MARTS OF THE COUNTRY.
A Very Stiff Feeling for this Season of the
Year Reported In All Departments of
Trade—Information From New
York, Chicago and
Other Points.
THE FAILURES NOT SIGNIFICANT.
HEW YOBK.
No Cinn for Complaint.
New Yobk, August 19.—Business has
generally kept active (or.the season, the
continuance of the railroad war and the
consequent cheap rates bringlog in buy
ers in many lines of trado to the city
much earlier than usual. Merchants
iceuciaiijr aie oaueueu wun toe prospects
of the fall trade, and some large inter
ests are said to look better at this pe
riod than ever before. Jobbers of dry
goods claim a good business; that times
ire lively with them, and tftat they an
ticipate a large trade.
The grain market has been much ex
ited and prices have advanced all along
he line. There has been a large specu
ative business in all descriptions. Corn
-eached the highest price of the season,
md in oats there was a large advance.
Wool is in moderate demand, but hold
>ra are not inclined as yet to make sacri
ices, apparently feeling confident that
>rices art? low.
The demand for American pig iron
continues to increase. Business in for
iign iron has not been large. In bar and
date iron the activity atill continues
md the general outlook of the trade is
|uite an encouraging one. I
In coffees there have been but few t
Etrge operations and the market may be
aid to be quiet, not dull. In the mild- i
r grades prices were well sustained and i
here was considerable demand. The i
lilures of the week are few and unim- i
lortant. i
CHICAGO.
luaineu Somewhat HeUrded, but Never- I
tbeleu Qood. i
Chicago, August 19.—The week's hus- <
less has been somewhat retarded in <
tie rural districts by the uncertainty re- ]
arding the crops, and bv the terribly '
ot weather, which has at the sau'e time '
iscouraged traffic and travel and in- '
irod the corn. In tinanml circles in *
Jiis city there has been, however, an '
nprecedented activity, probably on ac- '
junt of the lively times on 'Change, k
he demand for money is brisk, but ®
lere is a little less than a full supply of f
mds, and rates are not exorbitant. i
he general trade shows no particular I
latures.
Building materials are active, at stiff
rices.
The best quality of dairy goods are
ery firm and in constant and active r
emand in and out of the city.
Fruits are scarce and high, with ready .
lie for good qualities. r
The chief interest was centered about .
«« "wp^iatlon J
i yafues' in all articles of trade,particu- ,]
rlv in grain. The trading at tirst was r
a ' the weather, which was c
msidered very unfavorable for e
le growing corn. Warm showers t
pgan to fall in the middle of the week, j
he condition of the President, which }
gured somewhat before, became the
lief feature that advanced prices, and
teach favorable bulletin there was a
:rong upward movement, \dded to .
lis is the undeniable fact that just at
le present the whole crowd inside and 1
utside the city who deal in options are j
long" on grain. The influence of con- !
nual orders to buy is «o strong as to be '
)r the time irreslatable, and
rices are now far beyond
'hat the clique who began the corner
rith wheat two or three months ago ex- '
ected to see. The corn market seems '
3 be the leading one. but no syndicate

uoney which cornea from evenr quarter
astead of coining al it ordinarily hap- '

>ats aie following in the wake of other i
rain. Provisionn were strong and hiiih- <
r, but with many fluctuations. I*ard 1
lid not maintain its highest figures for
he week. A corner is s*id to have been )
tarted. Kye and barley are moving up
nd showing considerable strength. i
It has been the habit of the clique to
ix the price each day a notch higher
han the preceding day, and to refuse all
ettlements at a lower figure. A good
oany "shorts" have paid the difference 1
»ver and quit the deal. As might be
expected, these prices have brought
ibout heavy receipts. For four days of
he week the aggregate receipts were
1,615,000 bushels, which is somewhat
rreater than the tremendous receipts of
ast ^ear at the same time, when a big
Top" was pretty well assured. The
ihipments have not kept pace with the
■eceipts, amounting to3,258,000 bushels,
i far smaller aggregate than last >'» ar.
PITT&BUiiOH
A Regular Boom.
Pittbbl'boh, Au/. 19.—BusinesH has
>«en decidedly active the past week in
til branches of trade, and particularly in
iron and petroleum. The iron market
a daily growing better. Orders continue
to increase, and the mills are running
sight and day. Prices are very still" an<1
manufacturers are sslciagthe foil card
rate of %2 30, while three months ago
many were selling aa low as fj. The
movement in g'ass is about the same aa
last week. Stocks are low, with the mar
ket stiff Manufacturers are anticipat
ing an advance. Petroleum ruled active
»nd tirm all week, with united certifl
cates from 75 to 81 j, which was the clos
ing figure* to-dav. Refined was fairly
ictive, and oearfy all the ref ueries are
in active operation, and some of them
are sold considerably ahead.
BALTIMOBE
Fevensb and Unsettled.
B w.TiM >rk, Augnst 10.—The stock!
market the past week has been feverish
and unsettled and the volume of busi
ness small. Money was abundant, hot
obtainable only on the best collaterals,
and then at an increased rate of inter
est. All securities of doubtful standing
were lower, and there was no ilitp wi
tion to take hold of th<?w». Moat Vir
ginia securities declined. Indeed only
part of the due coupons held their own
until to-day, wbea they too declined.
There was a decHne in tbe exports
for the week, the total values having
been only fl,213.349, or more than half
a million 1msthan the preceding week.
Tbe grain trade was unsettled, but
prices advanced rapidly until to-day.
when the excitement'amounted to a
panic. Wheat wss acUve and the ad
vane* since Friday last apt* to-day was
M cents. The advance was regular un
id Wednesday, when tbe market weak
• led and tbe day showed a falling off of j
o te-half cent fro® Wednesday's prices,
bat yesterday it ran np three and a half
cent^ and to-day at the close an ad
vance of cants vh oflfsrad forapot
or $1 42 for options.

vanced |2 daring the week on all fades,
though the high grades are now strong
er. Inere was laifely incroassd receipts,
bat the business wss not proportionate,
there hsvins been s very limited export
demand. The market for oats has
showed more vitality for some months
past and with largely reduced receipts
prices rapidly advanced.
The coffee market ruled very quiet
and steady to-day with more firmnee*,
but no change in quotations. There ia
very little of the best stock in first hands,
and the receipts were small, consisting
of s single arrival of 5,779 bags. Sugar
is dull and the market flat. The absence
of a large peach crop has kept the mar
ket down and there is no probability
of any conaiderable advance.
Tbe live stock market wa* fairly active
and prices a shade firmer for the best
beef cattle. Hoga were in fairaupply at
/all prices for corn fed, but grssaera
were not wanted except at a reduction.

THE HKIST1ANCY L'ASE.

sumed—A Horrible Rrvclation.
Washington, August 19.—After a
long reocM the taking of teatimony in
the divorce case brought by ex-Minist-'r
Christiancv against bia wife, was re
sumed to tiay. Ambioje Follette, who
keeps a drug store, testified that in July
1876, Senator Chriatiancy visited bis
place and told him: He (the 8enator)had
operated on bis wife to produce an
ibortion; that she was suffering from
the effects of it and be wished him to
prescribe tor her. The witness objected
under the circumstances to doiug any
thing of the kind, and told the Senator
:oget a regular physician to attend her.
rhe Senator did not wish to do
.his, and Baid all he wiahed
.he witness to do was
o visit his wife and assure Mrs. Chris
iancy that she was in no danger. He
risited Mrs. Christiancy twice and on
he second visit he found her in conaid*
ible pain, and she complained of the
reatment she had received
it the hands of her husband. She
laid she had protested against the per
ormance of the operation, and the Sen
ior had insisted upon it and induced
ler to submit, telling her she would not
uffer any pain, but that now she was
>nduring terrible pains. Several times
luring the visits of tho witness she com*
ilained of her husband's treat
nent, but the Senator would always
tush her up, telling her to stop talking
nd all would come right. On the occa
ions of these visits the Senator tried to
saure his wife that the abortion was
igbt and proper, and there was no dan*
er in it. The only medicine he pre
cribed for Mrs. C wasan opiate, which
ie did at the time of making the first
ieit. The cross examination was i>ost
oned. _
