assurances contained in tlie morning;

itself and that other indications were
no less satisfactory, raised the despon
dent tins morning, i lie nignt compar
ed with the proceeding one was a com
parilively quiet one. The President'
woke frequently but not so often as the
night before. The accumulation of
phlegm being less troublesome. About
tour this morning the President asked
for koumiss and a small quantity was
given him and retained by the stomach.
The morning dressing showed a nor
mal temperature and respiration and
pulse two beats less than yesterday
morning. The wound was found to lie
doing well and the intlammed gland in
about the same condition. Dr. Uliss
said at nine this morning that the swell
ing is no worse and the general condi
tion of the President is a little better.
Tlie anxiety is somewhat lessened by
the developements of the moring but
the gravity of the situation is still ap
parent. UNOFFICIAL BtTJXKTIN.
Executive Mansion, Aug. 22. Doctor
Uliss reports at 11:40 a. m. that the con
dition of the President is slightly better
than yesterday. There has been no
nausea or vomiting since yesterday af
ternoon, and the stomach seems again
resuming its functions. The President
has swallowed and retained without
discomfiture since morning about
twelve ounces of milk porridge and
koumiss and at seven a. m. an enemala
of beef extract was administered. An
other enemala will be given about noon.
There has been no change in the ap
pearance of the parotid gland since
yesterday although there has been a
further slight subsidence of inflamma
tion of the surrounding parts. The
surgeons hope they will have this fea
ture of the case under control although
they cannot yet speak with conlidena'.
The gland may suppurate within the
next three or four days notwithstanding
the precautions which have been taken
to reduce the inflammation. In that
case pus will be liberated by an incision
just as soon as its existence becomes
apparent. This will not necessarily in
volve great peril if the patient's
strength can be sustained. The. danger
most to be apprehended now, Dr. liliss
saj'S, is in his exhaustion and with this
danger they hope, to deal successfully
unless the stomach entirely gives way.
Thus far to-day indications are that the
organ is improving in tone and the se
cretion of phlegm in the throat has so
far decreased that it gives the patient
no special annoyance, and he is relieved
from the necessities of making such ef
forts to expel it as those which brought
Ion vomiting yesterday afternoon. Dr.

OFFICIAL BULLETIN.
Executive Mansion, 12:00 p. m. The
President has continued this morning
to retain liquid nourishment taken by
mouth as well as by enemala.
There has been no recurrence of vomit
ing and no nausea. The parotid swell
ing is not materially smaller but contin
ues painless. It has caused for a day
or two an annoying accumulation of
viscid mucous in the back of the mouth
but this symptom has now much abated.
At present his pulse is 104, tempera
ture 98.5.

DEEPENING GLOOM.
Chicago, Aug. 22. The following is
from Washington specials: It is difti-
cult to obtain any news from the sick
room beyond that which is given in the
omciai bulletins. But it is stated upoi
tpon
j authority, which in every stage of
I this case hitherto lias been unerring,
that last night and night before the
President was delirious, and during a
I portion of yesterday or the day before
I his mind in tlie daytime was somewhat
clouded. Upon awakening it takes him
some minutes to pick up the threads of
consciousness, and before going to
sleep his mind wanders. These arc
bad symptoms. The physicians seem
to make no progress in their attempt to
scatter the swollen glands about the
neck, and privately aumit it is a serious
diiliculty. Some army and navy sur
geons who were originally in the case,
and who have been visited to-night, say
the evening bulletin has given them
more apprehension that any that has
preceded it. They greatly fear that the
stomach will not be. suflicicntly rein
forced to give the President the neces
sary strength to recover, particularly
in view of i he fact that the system will
now be subjected to the demands that
will be made upon it by a wound more
than a foot it length.
Secretary Lincoln, who was at the
White, House this evening before he
had seen the evening bulletin, said he
felt very much discouraged. lie had
seen the physicians about noon but was
unable to obtain from them anv assur
ance, upon which he could reasonably
hope. -
Much comment is caused by the jour
ney of Captain Henry to Ohio. It trans
pircd lie had not gone for the Presi
dent's mother and boys, but his mis
sion was to Drenare for a nossible con
tinsrenev and be ready to start with
them at a moment's notice should the
worst appear imminent.
Members of the Cabinet" have been
very anxious lo-day and paid several
visits to the White House. Secretary
Y indom said:
"He may not be worse, but I don t
like these new complications. At one
lime it is dyspepsia, next it is parotid
gland swelling that causes the trouble,
always something and each time the
result is bad. Still I am hopeful, 1 am
in duty bound to be, I suppose, but I
don't like it."
Amona: other things that might cause
the President's death, some papers have
contained mention oí tetanus, or lock'
iaw. The doctor was asked to-day
what he thought of it, and he said the
Prníilílimt. wmilil livi i hrm i rrhoiif-, Morn!
tv if he never died until loidc-iaw killed
him. He did not think it a possible ele
ment of the case.
UOYNTON S BELIEF.
At 1 p. m. Dr. Boynton said to a press
reporter: "I think the President is
little better to-day. He has taken and
retained his nourishment well. He rel
ished his milk porridge and koumiss
and asked tor it this morning. 1 am
encouraged about tho glandular tronido
to-day. I think it is not quito so large
and it suppuration sets in it will be
much less dangerous than earlier in its
development and possible suppuration
would not be any great injury now. It
is a very uncertain complication and no
predictions can be made as to prcvent-
t í . i,., j .
nig suppuration. Jy io-iuorrov or
Wednesday we should be able
to determine when this suppuration
will be likely to occur. I think the
President's stomach is performing its
natural functions very well now. The
President has been a little delerious at
times but it has not amounted to any
thing serious, it is caused by an ex
tremely weak condition and his long
illness. It would probably occur in
any ease where the patient had become
so enfeebled. 1 attach no great import
anee to it. In all cases where enemata
arc administered in small quantities
laudanum or somethingsimilar is one of
the component parts. This is given to
aid in retaining the enemata, but it is
not sufficient'" to cause delerium. On
the whole I feel to-day more encour
aged than yesterday about the case,
but the President is still in a precarious
condition and little encouragement is
based on the outlook now.
KKCAI'ITULATIOX.
Executive Mansion, 10:.')0 p. m. The
President this morning began tho. day
in a condition which was regarded as
slightly better than that as shown by
the last ollicial bulletin yesterday. He
had passed a quieter and a more com
fortable night than anticipated. There
has been no recurrence of vomiting
which excited so much alarm yesterday
afternoon and t he pulse before he awoke
at 0 i. m. was down to 5)8. . This auspi
cious opening of the day seemed to jus
tify, or at least make more reasonable
the belief of a few sanguine persons
that the case was about to take a favor
able turn, and when the morning bulle
tin appeared ami it became known that
tho patient had began to swallow food
again without vomiting or nausea
a faint wavering of hope took the place
of profound despondency which pre
vailed everywhere throughout the city
last night. At 7;a. m. the surgeons gave
the patient enemata consisting of four
ounces of beef extract with the yolk of
an egg and shortly afterwards, in com
pliance with his request lie was given a
small quantity of koumiss which lie
swallowed and retained without dis
comfort. Later in the morning as there
was no sign of gastric disturbance tlie
patient was given more koumiss and
milk porridge and by noon he had taken
and retained ten or twelve ounces. The
exciting cause of voniitingyeslerday was
viscic mucttousin the throat that seemed
to-day to be absent. The secretions
from the inflamed parotid gland were
very scanty and gave the patient no an
noyance, and the gland itself caused
little if any pain. Tío therefore rested
more quietly than usual throughout the
day, and at 2 o'clock another enemata
was given, consisting of live ounces of
beef extract and the yolk of an egg,
and shortly after this the patient went
to sleep. With the exception of the
usual slight rise of his pulse and' tem
perature, his condition has remained
substantially unchanged throughout tlie
remainder of the day.

News from tbe"Corwln" In tbe ftea or
Ic.
Washington, Aug. 22. Captain
Hooper, of the revenue marine steamer
torwin," in a private letter unaer
date of St. Michaels, July 7th, says:
We arrived here on the 4th and go
north again to-morrow. I learned from
the Indians yesterday that a party of
prospectors in uauow iay, on me
north side of Norton Sound, and will
call there and interview them on their
way north. I have taken on board a
lot of extra provisions enough for
winter, if we shonld be compelled to re
main so long: While absent on our last
cruise I left a boatswain and two men
on West Diomede Island to take cur
rent observations, but the weather was
so bad that they could not launch their
boat, so I took them back on boaru.
We may have an opportunity
later to do something. From here we
go to Kotzcbul sound and will then take
a run un the rivers in a steam cutter
and then go north as far as we can. We
can go on tlie American shore. I will
leave a nartv at the coal mine on the
way up the coast and let them get out
what t hev can while we are gone.
About the lOtli of August I hope to go
westward and see what we can mid.
The ice is light and we have had lots of
heavy blows, so 1 hope to get wen north
in August and September. So far I
think we have done pretty well.
We have dieovered relics of one
missing whaler and have learned from
the natives definitely that nothing lias
been heard of anyone belonging to the
Jeanette on the Siberian coast, and in
addition to this, we have discovered an
island not laid down on the chart, near
Cape Zcrdezee. The Indians up to
loukon are getting worse all the time
and will undoubtedly make trouble be
fore long if not punished.
Captain Hooper refers to the fact of
his finding it extremely hard work this
summer, inasmuch as lie has no pilot,
which makes it necessary for his re
maining on deck twenty-tour hours at a
time when the vessel is near land or
ice.
HOOFER'S REPORT TO WINDOM.
Washington, Aug. 22. Captain Hoop
er in an othcial report to secretary
Windom announces his arrival at St.
Michaels July 4 from the Artie Ocean
where he had been to pick up a lost
party under the command of First Lieu
tenant Herring, which he mentioned in
his last report as having been sent along
the coast oí Muerta to investigate the
rumored discovery of a wreck last
fall by some natives to the northward of
Cape Zerdezec, and to make inquiries of
natives about the Jeanette. lie readied
Tapkan settlement the place appointed
to meet our party on the !)th or J une,
and found them waiting for us. They
had been as far north as Cape Wau
kauram, at 07 degrees 54 minutes north
longitude, 170 degrees 52 minutes west.
They found the natives who discovered
and boarded a wreck and brought
away some of the articles found
by them, one a piece of silver
bowed spectacles in a tin case, a pair of
marine glasses, two table knives, one
marked with the letter "V," and one
whale iron, marked "B. K.".and the
name Macy, probably that of tho mak
er, and a circle about seventy-four in-
ches in diameter and having line dots,
probably the number of the boat to
which it belonged. No books or papers
were saved by the natives, although
they say there were some in the cabin,
but attached no value to them as they
could make no use of them. The wind
was blowing hard at the time from the
northward, so they did not remain on
board long.
On the following daptliey went out to
look for the wreck but it was not to bo
seen. The wind had changed to the
southwest during the night and started
a drift of ice with which the ship was
surrounded in a northeasterly direction
of course taking the wreck along. They
say they kept a good lookout afterwards
but saw nothing more of it. There is a
report among the whalers that the
"Vigilant" had a pair of deer horns on
her jib boom and if this be so it. would
indicate that it was the wreck
of that vessel. It is probable the marks
on the whale iron will be identified and
decide the matter. I shall forward
these articles by the St. Paul to San
Francisco to be left at the Merchants'
Exchange for inspection by those inter
ested, it seems certain wo have learn
ed the fate of one of the missing whal
ers and a part of the crew as stated.
A Missing OOirinl Ketnrnetl.
San Francisco, Aug. 22. The Exami
ner this morning states that the miss
ing county clerk, Stewart, has returned
to the city, and publishes an interview
with him. Stewart bears marks of
travel, and says he lias been to Mexico.
That he left to avoid the intrusion of
officious friends and unpleasant politi
cal lniiuences and to disembarrass him
self from unpleasant obligations; that
the affairs of his office are all straight
and his private matters had been great
ly misrepresented. On the other hand
tliere is a definite statement that Stew
art has come back at the request of his
bondsmen, and that they had been
obliged to pay into the treasury some
three thousand dollars unaccounted for
by Stewart. '

Paris, Aug. 22. At the election to
day for members of the Chamber of
Ueputies polling nere was perieeny orderly-
Eagerness to vote was general
and especially large, a number of votes
having been polled at Belleville.
FRANCE IIAD TO BREAK OFF.
A semi-official note is published which
repeats the assertion that France had
no option but to break off negotiations
for 1 tie new comercial treaty with Eng
land and says it is to be hoped there
fore that the opinions of the English
public and English statesmen will soon
admitthe necessity to which France hail
to yield.
FREE TRADE.
The belief that the new chamber will
be more favorable to free trade is doubt
less erroneous. Tlie only new member
elected in Paris is Hesedia.
DYNAMITE DEVILS1 WARNING.
Geneva, Aug. 22. The Socialists ad
dressed a threatening letter to the Fed
eral Tribune in regard to their appeal
from the grand council of Zurich prohib
iting a social congress there in Septem
ber. The letter warns the judges of
tlie tribunal that they will be the first
to be blown up and states that the so
cialists have enough, dynamite to blow
up half of Switzhrland and it is in
Switzerland that the conflagration will
begin that will burn up the world.
RESULT OF THE FRENCH ELECTION'S. .
Paris, Aug. 22. The general result
of the elections in Jaris shows the re
turn of one moderate candidate, thir
teen republicans and nine irreconcila
bles. Four second ballots will be nec
essary. The avowed socialists and
revolutionary candidates generally re
ceive only a handful of votes. They
are suspected in many cases of being
started only for the purpose of causing
divisions. The general result up to the
present shows a return of 2!)7 republi
cans and 58 oppositionists. The former
gained forty-live seats of which tho
moderate republicans secured 31, re
publican union nine, extreme left throe,
and intransigeants two. Forty-six sec
ond ballots will be necessary. Tin?
great feature of the elections is the de
feat of the, Bonapartists. In Doradigue
alono they lost four seats.
Tlie following eannidates of note were
re-elected. Ministers Ferry and Coch
ery, Freppel Drehesulque of the repub
lican left and left center, and DeMarco
of the left center.

Vienna seems to be successful, as it is
reported in well informed circles that
King Humbert will visit Emperor Fran
cis Joseph. The meeting will bo early
in autumn. The event is regarded here
with groat political significance, espec
ially as Humbert expressed a wish to
visit Emperior William at the same
time.
A Grand Tunnel 81 1.
'Old Baldy," the mother of gold, of
fers one of the best fields for a profita
ble investment of capital to be found in
the entire Southwest. On every side of
Baldy the gulches leading up to it are
rich in placer gold. All the gold of the
Mereno valley lias washed and ground
from its sides. On the Ute creek side
the gold is very coarse with plenty of
rffiggets of virgin gold weighing from a
few dollars in value up into the thous
ands. All this gold has come from
veins of quartz that forms a net-work
through the mountain. Most of these
seams have never been worked because
narrow. Some, like tho Aztic, from
which nearly $1,000,000 has been taken,
the Montezuma, from which over $100,
000 has been taken, the Rebel Chief, now
being worked by t he Cimarron Mining
Co., the Legal Te nder and others have
been proven rich and paying mines,
but no shaft has ever been sunk, we
understand, one hundred and fifty feet
into Old Baldy. Such numerous and
rich surface indications of gold, both
placer and quartz, do not, we venture
to affirm, exist on any other mountain
in New Mexico there must be in Old
Baldy an immense chimney of ore of
which these seams are only feeders. A
tunnel directly through the mountain
from east to west, on a level with the
Aztiz mine would prove a most profita
ble investment. If a favorable conces
sion could be securred from the Max
well grant the money for such a tunnel
eoultl be easily obtained, and with the
improved steam drill like the Penryce,
thd work could be cheaply and quickly
done. We hope to see this scheme in
augurated. aWs and Press.
Ioiular Neiitiment in Palermo.
An old, old lady, who must have
learned it from the Voltaires of the
past century, said to me that God found
it easy enough to create men, but
found it very difficult to satisfy their
various tastes for pleasure. The two
hundred thousand souls of Palermo are
a happy example of a large, contented
mass. Tho fcsla of three days satisfies
all tastes. There are fireworks, illumi
nated gardens and religion, all so well
mixed ami deposed that the saint and
sinner can alike enjoy them. This year
the people have been devout. The comet
which has graced the northern skies
lias set the people to thinking. The
prediction, on the best of authority', of
the end of the world in November has
set people- praying. Tito earthquakes
