THERE ISSOME HOPE, It May Be That Gen. Sheri dan Will Pull Through, After All. His Physicians Now Report His Condition Much Better. The Pride of the Army Says He Feels Splen did. He Sleeps Restfully and His Recovery Is Not Un likely. Washington, May 28.— There was a general feeling of relief in Gen. Sheri dan's household this morning when the physicians issued a bulletin that there had been a slight but distinct improve ment in all his symptoms. The night was an anxious one. The distinguished patient seemed to grow weaker and weaker, and the chances of his recovery less and less, as the hours dragged slowly along. Indeed, he was so low in the early hours of the morning that his faithful attendants well-nigh abandoned hope. Even the members of his staff, who have been in constant attendance (since his first attack last Monday, and who have all along contended that the general would pull through, seemed despondent and discouraged, and an swered inquiries as to the general's chances with a dubious shake of the head. The history of the case shows that the most . dangerous time for the general is between the hours of 2 and 0 in the morning, and this morning was no exception to the rule. All the physicians and the nurse were with him during that period, and the discouraging news that came from the bedside from time to time filled the anxious watchers with grave fears. Mrs. Sheridan bore up bravely under the trying ordeal, and although unable to obey the doctor's advice to take some sleep, showed rare confidence and com posure. The children did not realize the gravity of the situation, and they slept calmly through the hours which some feared might be their father's last. They know that there is something wrong in the house, but so far have been kept in ignorance of the true state of the case. They wander about the house at will, but are not allowed to enter the sick chamber. They appear to be interested in the constant stream of carriages which rolls up to the door and watch the occupants as they alight and re-enter their carriages. They are sometimes seen pushing aside the cur tains in the parlor windows, but their favorite points of observation are the windows in the room on the third floor directly over the one in which their afflicted father is lying. The appear ance of the children at the windows was one of the MOST pathetic features of the situation to the visitors who called while the general was reported to be slowly sinking. Representatives of the press remained in the vicinity of the house all night and received in formation from the inside every half hour. The usual answer to inquiries at the door was that there was no material change in the general's condition. Towards morning this reply was varied to "I am sorry to say that the general is no better," or, "the general is not quite so well." This was the situation at 8 o'clock a. m., at which time people began to ar rive in numbers to inquire after the general's condition. At that hour there had been a slight improvement since daybreak, but the manner of those who gave out the information was not calcu lated to afford the caller much encour agement. Many prominent officials called in person, and others sent their servants for news. The bulletin was delayed about an hour beyond the usual time' by the absence of Dr. Matthews, who left the house about 7:30 o'clock and did not return until 9. He had been with the general all night and went home merely to get his breakfast and a breath of fresh air. A consulta tion was held immediately on his re turn, and all the physicians agreed that the general's symptoms at that hour showed a slight improvement. This news dispelled for a time the gloom which hung over the household, and bright glances of hope were exchanged among the friends assembled in the library. Col. Kellogg, one of the gen eral's aides, was particularly encour aged. He went across the street to his residence and informed his wife, and on his return said to an Associated Press reporter: "The general is improving slowly and we are now encouraged once more." The general is a most remark able man aud seems to have an inex haustible supply of strength. He had a very bad night, indeed,but rallied again this morning when we began to fear he could not do so." Col. Blunt, another aide, was some what conservative. He appeared on the front porch for a few moments and said that the general seemed to be a little better this morning. All the members of the cabinet except Secretary Endicott, who is out of the city, called at the house during the fore noon. The president sent a messenger to the house twice during the day and expressed an earnest desire to be ■promptly advised of any change in the general's condition. He also sent a beautiful basket of flowers for Mrs. Sheridan. Another handsome basket of flowers was sent to the house with the compliments of the Ancient and Honor able Artillery of Boston, the members of which organization are now on a visit to this city. Many telegrams of condolence were received during the day. The bulletin issued at 2:30 o'clock stated that the general had retained all the improvement noted in the morning bulletin, and in addition his mind has GROWN REMARKABLY CLEARER. At 5 o'clock Gen. Sheridan was rest ing quietly. Col. Kelloge expressed the opinion that the general is really betler. He instantly recognizes' any of his friends who enter his room, and often inquires alter their .health. "At no time," said Col. Kellogg, "has the gen eral given up hope." The 6 o'clock bul letin announced that the condition of the patient was unchanged. He was resting easily and the administration of oxygen seemed to have greatly bene fit* him. At 0:30 p. m. the following bulletin, prepared an hour previous, was issued: Gen. Sheridan has passed a most com fortable day. lie dozed at intervals and about 5 p. m. had a quiet sleep of nearly an hour's duration, from which lie awoke feeling refreshed and cheerful. He has slept occasionally since. His mind is perfectly clear. lie is stronger. His pulse has gained in force and regu larity and at no time has exceeded 110. The respiration shows great improve ment and the aeration of the blood is better. The oedema of the legs has en tire y disappeared. He takes sufficient too* l and his tongue, previously much coated, is now clear. His secretions are normal. He says he feels splendid. [Signed] Robert M. O'Reilly, W. -Matthews, C. B. Byrne, H. C. Yarrow. At midnight the following bulletin, highly reassuring to the friends of the general, was issued by the physicians in attendance: -'There is little to add to the 3:30 o'clock statement. Gen. Sheridan's favorable condition contin ues. He sleeps easily and restfully, wakes occasionally .makes some rational remarks and goes to sleep again." A more hopeful tone pervades the Sheridan mansion to-night, and the at tendants and physicians all appear much relieved at the strength and vitality shown by the stricken soldier and the determined effort of him to fight off the attack. The weather, which has been warm and close all day, has changed, and this evening a cool southerly breeze enters the sick chamber. The general has had more sleep during the evening than at any time since the attack began, and it is said to be easy and regular, and not due to the use of narcotics. His respir ation is improved, and even in slumber is quite natural. He is weak and has not left his bed during the day. but watches closely everything that takes place around him and is CONSCIOUS and rational, except immediately after oxygen is ad ministered. His mind is clear and bright, but this may be due in part to the oxy gen, which possesses exhilarating qual ities. Milk, beef tea and chicken broth are still given him for nourishment. About 11 o'clock to-night the general awoke and more oxygen was admin istered. While the general's condition is im proved somewhat, the chances are still against his recovery, and this fact is fully appreciated. It is impossible to tell when a change may occur, and as several days elapsed between the early attacks of heart failure, there IS CONSTANT APPREHENSION of its recurrence. The disappearance of the oedema in the leg has been quite marked and has given rise to a fear that it may have been in part caused .by the fluid which produces the swelling having gone to other and more vital parts of the body. It was thought that it might have been due to "tapping," but recourse has not been had to this process, and in the weakened state of the patient it might not have a good ef fect. It is thought that the heart fail ure is also complicated with chronic trouble of the liver and that the exist ence of cc dema is largely due to this complaint. i OX THE ROCKS. An American Bark Wrecked in Karluk Bay. Portland, Or., May 28.— News has just been received from the north of a total loss of the American bark Julia Foard, in Karluk bay, Alaska. The vessel was wrecked April 25, but first intelligence was received yesterday. The Julia Foard was commanded by Capt. Trainer, and came from San Francisco with a cargo of salmon cans for the karluk company. On her ar rival anchor was dropped and prepara tions were made to discharge the cargo and land about forty Chinese passen gers, when a heavy storm from the northeast came up and, and it appeared that unless the vessel could heave off shore and tack to get off the dangerous rocks on shore, she was in imminent danger of being wrecked. The anchor chain was hove short and the yards backed ready to tack, when a a heavy swell sent the Foard against the treach erous rocks, filling her lower hold. The storm increased, but with assist ance from the Karluk village all hands were rescued, numbering about forty people, including the crew. The pas sengers were uninjured and saved all personal effects. MURDERED AND MUTILATED. Fate of a New Hampshire Work man Who Angered a Fellow Em ploye. Portsmouth, N.

Two Persons Killed Outright and Eight Seriously Injured, The Number Burned More or Less Approximates One Hundred. Details of the Accident and a List of the Vic tims. Special to the Globe. Baltimore, Md., May 28.— A special to the Sun from Frederick, Md., says; A terrible accident occurred at 7 o'clock this evening from the effects of an explosion of a barrel of gasoline in the cellar of the grocery store of Charles E. Zellers, corner of Market and South streets. Two persons were killed, and from 90 to 100 injured. Mr. Zellers at 7 o'clock sent a boy into his cellar to tap a barrel of gasoline. On account of the darkness the hoy struck a match to light a lantern. As he did so the gas that had accumulated in the cellar ignited, and the boy rushed up stairs crying fire. A public alarm was quickly given, and in a few minutes the several fire companies were on the spot. Dense volumes of smoke rolled out of the cel lar, but the firemen got^actively to work and were just about ready to throw a stream of water upon the flames when a TERRIFIC explosion of gasoline occurred. The large and heavy plate glass windows were shiv ered and the small pieces were sent with great force across the street. At the same time the whole brick front of the residence portion of the structure fell outward with a loud crash, fol lowed by the almost entire demoli tion of the workhouse and back building of the establishment. In an instant .afterward the most ago nizing shrieks aftd screams were heard, and the hundreds of people who haa gathered to see the lire ran in every di rection. It was soon learned what a terribly sickening work had been done. Many of those who a few minutes be fore had left their homes to stay the flames were now returning with their faces, heads ' and arms either terribly burned or covered with blood. Some walked alone, some were led, while others were carried upon stretchers into the yards and residences near by. All the physicians and surgeons in the city were soon on the ground, dressing the wounds of the injured, and the priests of the novitiate gave absolution and spiritual comfort to those of their flocks. The scene was sickening. Women and children rushed to and fro wringing their hands, crying and imploring bystanders to tell them whether their fathers, brothers or sons were among the injured. The street, for a squarelin several directions pre sented the appearance of a battle field. It is impossible to-night to obtain a list of the injured, but so far as obtainable the "names are as follows: KILLED. CHARLES POOLE, a boy of fourteen years. " WILLIAM SLOCUM, colored. SERIOUSLY injured. John T. Moore. Lewis H. Doll. Harry Barnes. Peyton Bbottr. Charles Houck. Edward Houck. William Hahn. Qbobox Ott.

TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 29, 1888. EVIDENCES OF PROSPERITY, The Presbyterian Assembly Re ceives Some Encouraging Re ports. . . Philadelphia. May 29.— William E. Moore, the permanent clerk, con ducted the devotional exercises at the opening of the Presbyterian general assembly this morning, after which the assembly was called to order by the vice moderator, Gov. Beaver. The stated clerk read a telegram from -the general assembly of the United Presby terian church in Cedar. Rapids, convey ing the fraternal greetings of that body. Rev. Dr. Vanderlippe offered a resolu tion of request to the board of publica tion to publish a German translation ot the revised book of discipline. It was referred to the board with power to act and with the approval of the assembly. The report of the committee on publi cation and Sabbath school work, presented by Rev. Dr. Tuttle,stated that to the work of the editorial department were added during the year twenty three new bound volumes and eleven tracts. The business methods of the board deserve the most emphatic in dorsement of the committee. Row Dr. E. R. Craben, the secretary of the board, made an address. He said that from the business department had been issued 417,0-0 tracts and 18.000,000 lesson helps and papers.

During the year there was granted 10, --000 books and 37,000.000 pages of lesson helps and paper. At the beginning of the -year there were but seven colporteurs in the field; the number is now fourteen, and they have succeeded in organizing seventy-three schools dur ing the year. The receipts amount to about $73,000. There are in this land at least 10,000,000 of our youths untaught and going to destruction.

Dcs Moines, 10., May 28.— The Anti- Secret society men of the college met in a mob last night about 11 o'clock in front of the society room, in Chemical and : Physical hall, determined to break up a joint meeting of three secret societies. There was great excitement. The win dows were broken by stones thrown from the crowd, and the cry, "Down with secret society men," came from the throats of nearly a hundred stu- i dents. Water was shut off from artificial fountains in the room and chemicals were liberated in the lower halls for the purpose of driving the societies from the room. The "secret" . men attempted to come out, but the • door had been tied on the outside, and egress was made through a lower win dow. Rotten eggs followed them. One , "secret" man drew a revolver and fired, probably to the ground. The "secret" men rallied around the door; one ran out with a club, another with a revolver and threatened to shoot. The yell of "stone him" sent him back. The "anti" men were all masked, and "after the meeting was broken up they retired. . The complaint is that these secret socie ties plot against poor students, who en- . deavor to get along principally by mind ing their own business, and that the faculty sustains them in their persecu i tions. _ A VERITABLE DELUGE. There was Hail Also in the Rain Storm That Swept Kansas. ;• Topeka, Kan., May 28. — One of the heaviest rain storms known for years, accompanied by wind and hail, visited this state all day yesterday and last night. In many places hail stones of an exceedingly large size drifted to a depth of three feet. Small grain sus tained heavy damage, and in some places was driven hi to the soft ground almost out of sight. The loss in window glass was very heavy. In Cloud and Clay counties, where the storm was the severest, the damaged district is about ten miles in width. The hail fell with great force, tearing shingles off the roofs and cutting cattle so that blood ran. At Stockton the Solomon river is over one mile wide, and it is still rising. Everything mova- '• ble on the river bottom was carried . away. Two families were carried away by the flood this morning and three lit tle children were drowned. . .— -BW THE NORTH STAR IS DIM.

After giving his master's height, color of hair and size of trousers, the clairvoyant noted them down and retired in order to consult the position of the various heavenly bodies. After a careful ex amination the clairvoyant gave as his opinion that Maj. Edwards' political chances are a little mixed, as the North star don't shine with its usual brill iancy." 1 _.

Black and Mr. Morrison Are Not Without Friends, Though. Several States Have Favorite Sons Who Will Bob Up Serenely. St. Louis, May 28.— one week the Democratic national convention will meet in this city. The choice. of the Democracy for the first place on the national ticket is already decided abso lutely. All doubt settles on the selec tion of a candidate for vice president. To ascertain in advance the sentiment of the men who will, participate in the approaching convention, the Post-Dis patch seven days ago sent out tele graphic instructions to correspondents in every state ami territory to obtain from delegates to the national conven tion electors, and the fountain-heads of political information the vice presi dential preferences, and the most prob able action of the delegations in conven tion. The instruction in every instance was to obtain the most reliable informa tion. Where sentiment had not crystal lized sufficiently tube judgedaccurately, a canvass of the district delegates and /cry-. &J6LGUC, -A . niv^i delegate's at large was ordered to arrive at the most reliable _ aud correct . con clusions. ■ The results of this undertaking are to-day presented -the first comprehen sive view of the situation. The senti ment of twenty-six states has been ob tained from sections so widely apart that the result may be relied on as defi nitely settling the choice of the Democ racy, of the country. This shows that Isaac P. Gray," of Indiana, IS SO FAR IN THE LEAD that in all probability he will be the Democratic nominee for vice president. The only other candidate with any con siderable strength or following is Gen. Black. Four names have been generally men tioned for the honor, viz: (Jen. John C. Black, of Illinois, William R. Morrison, of Illinois, and Gov, 1. P. Gray, of In diana. In addition to this list many states present the names of favorite sons for national recognition. Among the names mentioned ' are Gov. S. Pen noyer, of Oregon, and Senator Stewart, of Nevada, and Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, of Virginia, and Mills, of Texas. Massa chusetts has two favorites to present, in the selection of either of which the Bay State will feel honored. (Jen. P. A. Collins is named as the first choice of the Massachusetts delegation, and Sec retary F. O. Prince, of the national Democratic committee, as the second. Massachusetts also presents Judge Jo siah Abbott, who will lead the Bay State delegation to the convention as a candi date for the second place. ; Not regarding these local preferences, there are four candidates. From Morri son's friends in his old congressional district it is understood that "his influ ence will go against Gen. Black if the contest narrows down to Gen. Black and Gov. Gray. This fact gives Gov Gray a decided advantage, as does also the belief reflected in the reports from the states, that Gov. Gray is the choice of the administration. The reports from the various states indicate that the party differences in Indiana are not re garded as of sufficient importance to materially influence the selection of a candidate for vice president. The Illinois Democrats will make a strong effort to secure the place for one of the tliree Illinoisians, as they believe that with Palmer at the head of the state ticket and Illinois represented on the national ticket the Republican ma jority in the state CAN BE WIPED OUT. This movement, emanating from Springfield, will cut a figure in the com ing convention, but will, so far as Gen. Black's candidacy, which is now more promising than either of the others, is concerned, be counteracted by the Mor rison influence, that will go to Gov Gray. According to the sentiments as col lected below, the contest will be be tween Gov. Gray and Gen. Black, and calculated on the basis of the repre sentation in the convention, the Demo cratic nominee for vice president will be Gov. I. P. Gray, of Indiana. For the second place on the national Democratic ticket William R. Morrison is the first choice of the Missouri dele gation. He has a number of friends in this city, but the understanding among them, notwithstanding the letters re cently published, is that Morrison will not call for the support of his friends. Black is personally popular with the Missourians, but Morrison has friends in this state sufficiently close to avenge Black's conduct in the senatorial fight. The feeling between Morrison and Black is bitter enough to cut an im portant figure in the coming convention. Stephenson has some admirers in this state, but, with the circumstances stated intervening, Gray will be the choice of the Missouri delegation for the second place. _iS9| What Gov. Gray Thinks. i Indianapolis, May 28.— Gov. Gray, when approached, was reluctant to say anything about the vice presidency, but finally remarked that whatever feeling or desire there .was in. the country for him had sprung up spontaneously; that he was not making the slightest effort in that direction. His frieiids,however, assured him that he would probably be nominated. In answer to the question that there was some opposition to him developing in Washington and perhaps in other Eastern sections, he said; "Yes, that is true. I think it comes from some of McDonald's friends, but - the extent of it I do not know. I do not believe Mr. McDonald's opposition has much support here at home. In fact, I know it has none that can hardly be formulated. Old Democrats come to me constantly and say: 'Well, lam an old Democrat, and like old Joe, and have always stood by him and followed him, but he is all wrong in his attack on you.'
