MT. MoGBEaon , July 22. ! ) a. m. The
actual condition of Con , Grant ia pronounced
unchanged alnco the laat bulletin , except that
the general Ia Bald by Dr. Douglass to bo
growing weaker. Some food has been taken
and retained this morning , The patient ia
sitting with a slightly inclined head , conscious
and clear of mind. Dr. Douglas cent for Dr.
Hands. Dr , Douglas anticipates the end Cur
ing the day or evening.
12:20 : i ) , m. General ( irant's condition is
reported unchanged slnca ! > o'clock , except a
gradually increasing weakness.
2 r. M. Dr. Douglas just reported that the
patient haa just taken and retained a cup of
mill : and tbo physicians think that if there
hnj not been a slight rally the past hour , the
general is at least holding his own ,
2:15 : f. m. The members of tbo general's '
family and Dr. Newman are grouped in a
darkened room near the eick inau , Observing
evidences of their feelings the general said :
* 'I do not want anjbadyto be distressed oh
my account. "
3SO : p. m. Drc. Sands and Shrady
have just arrived by a special
train , which also brought U. S.
Orant , Jr. , and wife. The newcomers re
paired at once to the cottago. A singular oc-
curreuco at the cottage has juit been related
hy Dr. Plowman. At five minutes of 1 o'clock
Gen. Grant a > ked the hour of the day. "Ono
o'clock , " spoke ono of thoionear him. Soon
afterward the cottage clock chimed twelve
strokes , and the general counted them. Then
ho wrote on a pad that ho observed the clock
was wrong and deairod to have it etriko the
tight hour , which was done , and the
instance passed as ono moro of the
remarkable episodes of the general's
later eickneis. There has been a reoccurrence -
renco of hiccoughs today.
I p. in. The physicians met at once with
Dr. Douglas In consultation after leaving the
cottage where they found the general in a
critical condition. No ono of the staff is
willing to predict anything beyond twenty-
four hours , through which period it is deemed
impossible that the general can survive ,
though the probability now is that much less
time marks the limit of the general's life. A
chnnfo for the worse was anticipated as
the day closed. The pulse is now over ono
At 10:30 : , however , it was stated by reliable
authority that the general waa in a slightly
bettor condition than two hours ago.
From the present condition , which
borders npon a lethargic state ,
the uatient may quietly drift into final
consciousness. During the afternoon the ex
tremities of the sick man have baen cold and
in tha visible symptoms are signs that nature
puts out when death is chilling the powers.
The general , as the night passes , soema to bo
suffering no pain , though the lines of his face
are tensely drawn and the furrows of tbo
brow are knitted as he lion upon the cot be-
alde which the family are constantly watch
ing. At 1 o'clock the general was not asleep.
His bands and forearms were colder than two
hours before but his feet were
not so much BO. His pulse and respiration
bad not changed. The patient 'a
mind waa yet clear and comprehensive of the
events and utterances about him. Between
10 and 11 o'clock Dr. Bhrady had accosted the
genpral and ho answered in a husky voice and
promptly. Stimulants were being uaod , but
sparingly , and there waa an experience ex
pressed by the medical authority about 11
o'clock that the closing crisis may occur
either at 1 or 4 o'clock to-night.
At midnight Gen. Grant remains yet quiet
though not asleep , The coming hour is being
anticipated with great anxioty. At midnight
bottlea of hot water w ro placed at the gen
eral s foot to Induce warmth and mus
tard draughts were applied upon the
stomach and breast to preserve the flagging
circulation. Dr. S mds is resting at the hotel
and Dra , Douglass and Shrady are ut the
1 a. m , The general remains In the atmo
quiet condition. His pulao and respiration
are unchanged , and there is a feeling that ho
may tide over the midnight season of weak-
noda and until 4 a , m. .Hypodermics of brandy
are being used ,
2 a , m. The family h astir in the cottaRe ,
though there no visible indications .that point
to other conditions than at the time of tbo
Ian bulletin.
a a. in Gen Grant is In n somnolent con
dition. Inspirations have grown shallow and
the general IB no longer able to expectorate
because of his woaknesr , which ia Increasing ,
There seems but little potsibility that tbo
patient will survive the night.
The early morning hours at the Grant cot
tage were cool and refreshing. The ther
mometer at 2 o'clock thia morning marked
72 ° . this was the equable temperature main
tain oil in the nick room while General Grant
remained in New York and to it was this
morning added the Bweot odor from the pine
trees which bend o\or the cottage roof.
Agentlo 'bree/o , sweet and delicious swept
miles and mlloa down tha valley and from the
mounthlns , It stirred the curtains iu the
window tear which sat the sick man nnd
fanned his face more gratefully than could
the careful hands which were waiting near.
Between 2 nod 15 a , m. the pray tint of an
other day crept up the horizon beyond the
green mountain * , perhaps tno laat earthly day
of the Blck it nu bitting within tbo cottage par
lor. About nnd all round the cottage waa
atill and quiet , except the occasional twitter
of Borne birds In the birches or pines. Occas
ionally Henry , the nurse , wandered out on
the plazit for fresh air and a glimpse of thn
night Once at about II o'clock Mrs. Grant ,
attired In a looio g t n of white came out
an the veranda , and teatrd hi-reell in one of
the many deserted willow chairs which were
scattered In group ) about the piazza. Ten
minutes she sat motionless and looked away
to the east , where tno gray tint of another
day bad grown to full promise.
Her face rested upon one hand and eho was
evidently wrapped iu the folds of thought.
Suddenly there cama a sound ot a laboring ,
rattlioc cough from within. It was the gen
eral clearing the affected parts of his throat o !
mucus , Mrs. Grant left the piazza quickly
and seated herself by the general' * side ,
dlowly fanning the ick man' * face. Uhe
coughing waa not nevero but incidental Col.
Fred. Grant entered tbo room while the
nurse wa aiding the general and took i

The morning had passed three o clock
and the time had come to administer
food , The nurse touched the shoulder of Dr

( Jan. Grant leaned forward in the chair am
ngniGe'l a desire tint the lamp should be
brought. The nurse brought the lamp and
held It at the sick man'n shoulders , and at tb
moment the general turned hla face toward
tha light and upward to bid the nurse bring
pad and pencil , His wish was
not instantly understood , and turning a
trllla farther the general repeated the wish ,
This time hia low , husky whisper wai inter ,
proted and the pad nnd pencil were brought.
He wrote but briefly on the slip which ho
handed to Dr. Douglas , who at once pansod it
to Cnl , Grant , It wag a prlvato family com
munication , After writing the general re
sumed a half reclining petition. At 5 o'clock

thought that any bid could ba rendered by
him or any ono during the day. Stimulants
were pi von the general Lut he grown weaker
huir by hour ,
The morning Ia clear and mercury nt 11 the
thermometer registered 80 degrees. All visi
tors are kept from the cottage and a Sabbath
day quiet prevails about the spot. Dr. Now-
nun is with the family , who ara nuletly
waiting the end , The general's mind con
tinued coherent and clear. He sits much of
Iho tlmo as ho did last night with his eyes
closed. U. S. Grant , jr. , ia expected to ar-
rlvo this afternoon , when the family
circle will ba complete. Dr.
Douglas has just left the cottage and
says the general's pulse la very weak and flut
tering. The patient , once during the morn
ing , attempted to write but succeeded in writ
ing only the date , tlio effort being greater than
the little remaining strength warranted. Ho
has spoken at Intervals but hia voice ia very
feeble. During the forenoon food waa taken
and retained. With the declining day the
physician believes the general will also rapidly
The development of the general's ' weakness
during the afternoon waa not particularly
noticeable from hour to hour but between It
auJ U o'clock thora v\aa a clearly , though not
violently , marked increase of weakness. At
8 o'clock it was possible to measure the pulao
beats but at G o'clock one of the physicians
stated that the puleo boats could not be
counted IIPCMHO they were BO frequent and
fetb'.o. During the afternoon the blood tide
had so quickened that it moro rapidly were
the system and exhausted the frail bisi ? , if
any existed , upon which might ba placer
n hope that tlm general might ra'
ly. The point was reached at fi
o'clock when there was little to bo expected
from attempts to administer food. Soon after
G o'clock Hnirison came up from tbo cottage
and told Doctors Sands and Shrady that Dr.
Douglas desired to BOO them at tha cottago.
Thither wont the doctors , lemaluing but a
short time and then coming again to the
The family , beginning G o'clock , came to
the hotel to dinner in twos , the others re
maining at tha cottngo in the mean timo. The
family dined In a private room set apart for
their use at the hotel , in order , at this
critical time , that they might bo secluded
from tbo curious observation of many visitors
md guests with whom the general's condition
_ 'rom hour to Lour had been the topic of the
day. The closed and silent cottage all day
suggested mutely the enactment of the last
cone in Gan. Grant's earthly existence.
As the sun went down a cool breeze Hko
Jiat of last night sprang up and again laymen
on the mountain endeavored to persuade
bemselvea and others that a cool nlplit would
iring renewed strength to the patient and
ialp him rally thi o'jgh the night. But such
vas not the opinion oi the doctors who were
prepared to attend tbo general's death-bed at
i moment's notice or to wait through the
lours and into the night for the end. Moro
ban that , they were prepared to find
ho patient nlivo In the morninp. At 7
' 'clock , however , as the three physicians were
jt dinner , Harrison came to the hotel and
called Dr. Douglas , who went at once nnd
nlonn to tha cottago. Soon afterward another
nessenger from the cottage summoned Drs.
Shrady and Sands , and they repaired to the
ottago , closnly followed by Dr. Newman.
? fce exits of the doctors ar tte clergyman
rom the hotel were , IIOR , ver , so quietly
fleeted that few know they had been sum
moned to the cottage. Arrived there , they
ound the general evidently sinking. The
-cneral seemed restless. "Would you like
to lie down , father ? " asked Col. Grant , who
noticed the restlessness , Tha general nodded
ind nt the same moment essayed to rlso unas-
itted. But the effort waa too much for htm ,
and ba Bank back Into the chair , and the
colonel and the nurse aided him to arise , and
hen supported him to his bed , where hu waa
carefully lowered to a reclining position and
mrtly on hia face. Dr. Douglas then rolled
he chairs back , and one of the physicians
laa since remarked that the general has now
eft his chair for the last time.
The belief ii that the general baa at length
am down to die. The family are all gathered
at the aide of the sick man and again Dr.
Bowman , at about the same hour aa last night
and at Mrs. Grant's request , knelt beside the
reneral and prayed. Heads were bowed and
lilent tears were on the chocks of the men as
well as the women. The doctors sat some
what apart and the family was near its fast
sinking head. Then , after an hour , death
seemed little less rapidly gaining on -l

Special Telegram to The DEE ,
WASHINGTON , July 22. There was n para-
raph sent Monday about the removal of an
owa man by Comtnisiionor Atkins on ac-
ount of an effort made by him to commit
ribory , which proves incorrect In some par-
iculars. The facts ara that J , J. Franey , of
Council Binds , was lately appointed Indian
rader. His father , 13. u , Franoy , has been
n town a good while trying to get an ap-
itppolntmont as Indian agent. Congressman
Jero Murphy told Congressman Fredericks
but Franey had offered him ( Murphy ) 85lO
f Murphy could help him pet the
ippointment In the Indian service.
.Todericks repented this to Commissioner
Uklna , wbo rcmombcrod that the application
f n man named Franoy had been before him ,
, ho son being in bis mind , nnd ho at orco
rave orders to the appointment division to
lang the matter up till further orders , If
i'r.uioy had not been appointed. The com-
nlsilonor looked into the matter a little moro
, o-day and found out that it was Frauey , the
other , who was accused , and it wai the son
vlioin ho had appointed nn Indian trader ,
The commissioner said that tf bo found any-
hing dubious about J. ,1 , Franey'a reputation
ie shall remove tha young man at ouco , but
bat if ho appeared to be nil right ho would
lot remove him on account tf any quarrel
lotweou his father and Congressman Murphy.
Young Franey was appointed on the recom-
nendntion of Van Manning , ex-congressman
rom Mississippi , Speaker Carlisle and Mayor
Vaughn , of Council lilutls. As soon as Com
missioner Atkins got to the department to
day ho sent for Manning and told him what
ie had board. Manning leplied that
hero was not n particle of
easou for suspecting the young man of
anything crooked ; that if the old man tried
o bribe Murphy It was in order to get place
or himself , and not to get a place for his son ,
and that Murphy and the senior Franoy had
tad a bitter quarrel , and Franey slapped
Vlurphy's face , oa F street in this city a few
weeks ago , and this was probably all the
oundation that there was for the charge of
iribery. Atkins has taken no action In the
case yet , but he will have Franey thoroughly
nvestigated. Ho will not punish him for any
Ins his father may have committed , but he
will remove him Inatantly if he finda any
OOBOII to doubt the young man's honesty.

ng postmaatere : William J. Fleming , Fort

WASHINGTON , July 22. After mature con-
ideration , the president nnd cabinet have
eached the conclusion that the leases of lands

Sheridan has reported that no permanent sot-
leraent of Indian territory can ba effected
vhile the cattlemen are in possession of tbo
lest landa , and it is the intention of the presi-
lent to remove tbo distributing element and
oservo Indian terrltoiy for the exclusive oc
cupation of the Indians. The method of pro
cedure has not yet boon determined. A presl-
lentlal proclamation may issue , but It is re
garded by well-informed persons as moro

Ten or twelve years ago an act was
assed by the legislature making it a mla-
omonnor to kill sea lions anywhere
within a one-mtlo radius of Sea Hock ,
nd over elnco that tlmo the aoa lion haa
oen regarded as a privileged character. ,
nlvo or six years ago the iiah Industry
rat began to assume important dlmen-
, OIIB : ; It WAS then that canneries began
oC loom up , and In the course of three
cars folluwing grew to really gigantic
roportlon- . Firms In this city engaged

esa , and the outlook became as promts
njj na that of any Industry on tlio
cast. Soon , however , the aoa lion nnia-
nco manlfcstod Itself , and at the present
1 mo the fish industry In and around San-
rancleco bay la nearly paralyzed.
The sea lion la a lever of luxury , which
oubtlcss means to that species of animal
; fo a place to lounge on the eunny tide
if some ragged clil ! ' , and plenty to cat
irovldod by somebody else. During the
ay the animals are soon In great abnn-
anco floundering about the rocks near
ho Cliff IJouao , but toward night they
Isnppear and in immense bands flock In-
o thu bay through the entrance at the
olden Gate. The fishermen usually
tort out about 4 or 0 o'clock in tha af-
ernoon to sot their nets and do tlio groat-
r part of their work between that hour
ml midnight. The aoa lions seem o )
lave comprehended the processes of the
iahormen and evidently lie In wait for
heir approach. When a net \a \ not thoeo

heir presence known by a low grunt and
slowing noiao along the surface of the
water , and in n moat Incredibly short ;
pace of time ilczana and hundreds tf

uots , celao the fish , tear them loose
rom the meshes and devour them
with the rapidity of machines. If tbo
and happens to bo few In numbers , not
qnal to the consumption of all the flah
the nets which they attack , they will

ithtftwlso destroying the game of the In-
lustrlous fishermen BO that It is not an
mcommon oscurronco for the hungry
ollora of the bay to lift 150 fathoms of '
net without securing a single fieh. The

BOSTON , Mass. . July 22. Kx-Secrotnry
Robeaon passe J through Boston to-day , and
during hia brief stay was seen by n Journal
reporter , who asked him to speak of tlio fail
ure of John Reach and Its causes. His time
was too short for nn extended interview , but
he expressed his Ideas of the subject briefly.
"It was what mi ht have been expected , " hu
anid ; "in fact , what must have happened
under the circumstances. Roach , from the
magnitude ol his transactions , HJO compelled
to carry on much of hia budnoss on credit ,
and when the United States government sot
itself against him his credit was gone , and ho
wn driven , iu Belt-defense , Into bankruptcy.
Roach's position as a business man bos for
many years been wonderful , when It ia con
sidered that ho mada
It Rololy by Ids own ex
ertions. What Roach's roeourcoa nro no
jlliora , of course , can know ; but
ho always appeared to bo a wealthy
man , and no doubt was what
lie eucmod. Only the force of circumstances
boa put him into the present position. When
tht whole question ia summed up it amounts , .
tote thla , that by breaking him down it is hoped * *
to hasten the introduction of free ships. Ho
altvnys had been opposed to letting in ships
fro of duty and naturally haa had free tra
ders and tariff , revisers agalast him and
through the navy department they have ap
parently crushed him.
"Thoro is prevalent siisapprebcnsion , " con
tinued Robsson " '
, "concerning Hoach'a con
nection with the navy department daring the
years : I waa its secretary , The fact is , con
sidering Roach's.facilltise , ho had two of the
best yards in the country , he did not have hia
share of the work that Traa coatrncted. When
four double turrotted monitors wore
constructed- Roach "had only one ,
the Miantonomob ; another went
wont to Cramp , the third to Hunt and Hol-
lin < s'BWorth and the fourth was built in Cali
fornia. When the engines for tha eight sloops
weio to ho constructed Roach did not bid for
them , Tha Atlantic works of Boston put in
the lowest olfrr , but it was for only two. In
lils dilemma , Roach , who was approached ,
sail : "I don't want this work , but it no ono
else will take it at that price , I will. " The
work was offered at the figures named to
other concerns , and all ofit taken by them.
In those eight years Roach built more than
em hundred iron ehipt , not moro than five of
which were for the United States. In fact ,
but a small percentage of his work has over
been for the government , "
