The President's Case Has Taken An other Unfavorable Turn. He is Probably Too Weak to Overeóme Blood Poisoning. The Wound Has Been Growing Worse For Two Days, And the Lung Complication Gives More Trouble. Him There Seems Only a Faint Hope That He Will Rally. The Official Bulletins Have Lost Their Encouraging Tone. Hope Has Given Place to Anxiety, and The Worst is Feared. Don Miguel A. Otero's Mission to Den ver. A Conference With Gov. Evans About Railroad Matters, By Which Las Vegas Will Secure An other Koad. A Record of the Current Topics of the Day. The Wounded President. GROWING WORSE. Elberon, Sept. 10. At the examina tion of the President at 8:30 this morn ing his temperature was 1)8. 6, pulse 104, respirations 12. The febrile rise during the night was not as pronounced as it usually has been. There has, at times, been considerable acceleration of pulse. He, however, slept comparatively well, and look stimulants and nourishment as directed. The cough was somewhat more troublesome during the first part of the night, and expectorations were rather more purulent. The discharge from the wounds was less abundant and not quite as healthy in appearance. His pulse, however, has more volume, and his general condition does not seem to have materially changed in any respect. Signed, ' I). W. Bliss, F. H. Hamilton. GRAVE ANXIETY. The situation this morning is less fa vorable, and grave anxiety is expressed as to whether the President will be able to overcome the results of his extreme debility. Bed sores have again made their appearance, and the discharge from the wound is very unsatisfactory. While there are .no new complica tions in the President's case, his gene ral condition indicates that he has not made any gain during the past forty eight hours, in fact there has been a slight falling off. The wound has as sumed a more unhealthy appearance, and the discharge has been growing more unsatisfactory since yesterday morning. Small bed sores have again made their appearance. Dr. Boynton says he still hopes the president will be able to-pull through. His mind has been somewhat disturbed during the day as well as during the night, and there is still a continuance of suppura tion of the parotid gland. On the whole, the situation is one of anxiety The surgeons and attendants, however, express themselves in hopetul terms CONTRADICTORY. Col. Rockwell, one of the President's attendants, is authority tor the state ment that perspiration, which has been one of the annoying features of the President's case, has reappeared. Cols Rockwell and Swaim entertained a dif ferent opinion, and declare it has not reappeared. It is reliably asserted that the Presi dent's pulse reached 130 during the night, notwithstanding the fact that the febrile rise was not so pronounced as usual. MACVEAGll's LINGERING HOPE. The President's condition at this hour is unchanged. MacVeagh considers the ease as warranting extreme anxiety, but maintains that while there is no particular point which can be said to have developed to an alarming extent, the general condition, which includes the extreme debility of the patient, is necessarily one of grave apprehension. Dr. Bliss says there was a slight febrile rise commencing at 11 a. m., which continued until near 12 o'clock. OPINION OF THE "LANCET." London, Sept. 10. The Lancet says: "The reason of the trouble with Presi dent Garfield's lungs is their hypostatic condition and congestion of their bases because of depressed respiration arising from long recumbency. Sitting up will probably give much relief; but until all signs of affection of the lungs have dis appeared, the hopeful prognostic con stantly oabled here is not well founded, although it may prove a lucky guess." NOON EXAMINATION. At the noon examination the patient's pulse was 114, temperature 89.0, respir ation 21. At this hour his pulse is 108 and temperature not much above nor mal. The patient was not placed in his chair to-day on account of the febrile rise. New York, Sept. 16. Specials from Long Branch are of a gloomy character and express the belief that another crisis in the President's case is near at hand. OFFICIAL BULLETIN. 'Elberon, Sept. 16 6:30 p. m. At the examination of the President at 1:20 to day, his temperature was 98.8, pulse 116, respiration 21. At the evening dressing his temperature was 98.6, pulse 104, res piration 22. The slight febrile rise which occurred at 11 a. m.. had entirely sub sided at noon. The condition of the wound remains unchanged. His cough has not been so frequent or persistent but the sputa still remains purulent. Nourishment and stimulants have been fiven in increased quantities without iscomfort. Altogether his general con dition cannot be said to bo improved. Signed, 1). W. Bliss, F. H. Hamilton, D. II. Agnew. ONE LITTLE RAY OF HOPE. Elberon, Sept. 16. Dr. Boynton says. "The President is suffering from the effect of blood poisoning and it is de cided and apprehensive. I hope he will overcome the extreme loss of strength and rally, but it is a question whether he will. I see a very gradual but sure descent in his case. He has his tips and downs, his bright days and dull days, but looking back iind follow ing the case to the present, I have been discouraged, but nave not lost hope and will not, as I think he is going to pull through, but it will be a tedious and wearisome work for him. The wound has commenced to look less fa vorably yesterday morning, and has grown worse ever since. The discharge is thin and watery. He is extremely weak, but there are no complications with the exception of the appearance of bed sores. I do not think the patient would be able, in his present debilitated condition, to undergo another compli cation such as he has already encoun tered. MACVEAGH TO LOWELL. Elberon, Sept. 10. There has been no very marked change in the President's condition, but it is not at this hour re assuring. The different symptoms are almost all slightly aggravated. His temperature and pulse have fluctuated more than usual, and respiration was rather more frequent, while the charac ter of discharges continue to bo unsat isfactory. There is therefore a sensible increase of anxiety. Signed, MacVeaoh. Cols. Swaim and Rockwell think the President will rally, Sew Railroad for New Mexico. Denver, Sept. 10. The Republican says: Don Miguel A. Otero, of Las Ve gas, is in the city. In course of conver sation with a reporter he admitecd that he had come here at the invitation of Gov. Evans, and that they had done considerable talking about the con struction of a railroad and telegraph line from the southern line of Colorado to Socorro, N. M. The project has al ready been considered by New Mexican capitalists, and Evans is desirous of utilizing it as a connection of the Den ver & New Orleans. No organization has yet been formed, but Otero pre sumed that articles of incorporation would be prepared soon after his return to Las V egas next week. The name of the organization will probably be the Denver, Lai Vegas and socorro Railroad Company. Ihe amount of capital is not yet decided upon. Otero expected a connection to be made with the road recently incor porated to build a line from Socorro southwest along the Black Range, through the , Mogollón district, along the Gila River to lucson, thence .to some port south of Guaymas on the Gulf ol California. JNo alliance has yet been made with the Denver & New Or leans Road, but he expected great things from the New Mexican scheme in any event. Know Storm in Ionn. Chicago, Sept. 16. Reports received from Crestón, Iowa, say a storm of snow has been prevalent there since morning, and quite a general storm is reported in Southern Minnesota. Noth ing confirmatory has been received, but the report is believed to be cor rect. Des Moines, Sept. 10. Snow fell be tween Atlantic and this city to-day in such amount that the Rock Island train men made a large snow ball, which they left here. A cold rain fell here. It has been unusually cold for several days in this vicinity, ihe thermometer never going higher than 58 and drop- 1inor to 41. Snow fell all along the lock Island, between DeSoto and some point in Nebraska. The snow is two inches in depth at Omaha. The tops of cars on the Rock Island on ar riving here this afternoon were covered with snow, and the brakemen were snow-balling. ivicijrregor, la., oept. lo.

At the latter point it fell to a depth of four inches. Desperate Atti-int at Escupe. San Francisco, Sept. 16.- A Portland dispatch says : This morning Edward Mordaunt, an escaped convict, who it was supposed leaped overboard from the steamer Columbia below Astoria, was found stowed away in the vessel Mordaunt, on being discovered, leaped into the river and attempted to swim ashore, but was seized with cramps, and shouting for help was rescued and brought on board, when it was found that lie had broken his shackles.

He kept on, ridding himself of the buggy, and after twice running around the track, went out among the buggies on the outside, nearly jumping a fence. He' was finally caught, and to the surprise of all was unhurt. This caused delay in the race, during which the pacing race was called!

Mining: Mock market. New York, Sept. 16. The mining as sociated press reports that there is much greater activity in mining stocks than tor some time, and fluctuations have been frequent, though in most cases not wide. Comstocks have been very strong in sympathy with the San Francisco market, but much doubt is expressed here concerning a continu ance ot the boom. Little stock was taken by old operators in reported strikes in Siera Nevada. Mining stocks in general, outside of Comstocks, are considered low, and indications point to higher prices in the future. The new water pipe for the State Line mines has been shipped, and the completion of the pipe line is anxiously awaited, as an advance is then expected. Leadville stocks are coming to the front again, and show a marked improvement. Chrysolite is leading the advance, and sold up to-day at $750. Bullion receipts in New York for the week from the mines, were $31)8,204. Sales of mining stock at both exchanges were about 800,000 shares. Arizona Advices. tiffany's trifling.
