Telegrams of sympathy come to

and affectionate hu$aud, and our
Condition of the President.
The president has been gaining in
strcngtli right along since he met
his injury, and, although the danger
is not wholly past, tho country ap
parently rests easy, and believes that
he will recover his full strength in
good time. During the hot days,
appliances have been used for cool
ing the president's room, lowering
the temperature several degrees.
Nurses, physicians and friends
have united in making the president
as comfortable as possible, and some
patriotic citizens of New York have
raised a fund of $250,000, and pre
sented it to Mrs. Garfield, not only
as a token of esteem, but as a fact
tending to relievo the president's
anxiety in regard to the future of
Presents of all kinds, designed for
the physical comfort of the sufferer,
have been poured into the "White
House, until there seems to be no
limit to the generosity and the
thonghtfulness of the American peo
ple in this time of pain and danger
to their Chief Magistrate.
Some experiments made with the
pistol and balls found on the assas
sin lead to the belief that probably
the wound of the president was not,
at any time, so serious as thought
for by some of tho physicians. The
amount of powder in the cartridges
was not sufficient to throw a ball
with very great velocity, and it i9
now thought that in all probability
no vital organ was penetrated.
The dailies of Monday givo a
lengthy account of the way in which
tho president passed the night of
Saturday last, as follows :
"The president's desire oxpressed
last night that his wounds might be
dressed so that he might go to sleep,
seems to have been well founded,
for sleep he did, and longer. at a
time and with better results than at
any time since his hurt, since ho did
not fully awake from his first sleep
until nearly midnight, and then did
not remain awake but little more
lhau an hour. During this interval
he asked for a drink, which was
given him, and he also took his usu
al nourishment. He fell asleep the
second time without the aid of mor
phine, and to the surprise of his
attendants did not awake until near
ly 5 o'clock in the morning. This
long period was not a continuous
slumber but a continuation of a
sleeping rest. The patient would
iu each half hour open his eyes for a
second aud then close them again.
The sleep was calm and streugth
giving. No t03siug about or pain
ful circumstances marred it. Mr.
Cump, the steward, and Mrs. Dr.Ed
son were with him in the early
morning hours. The latter says
his sleep was liko a child.
They watched him closoly. There
was no indication that he was
asleep because exhausted, but to
all appearances sleep came to him
because it was time for sleep
and because he needed it. Tho first
one to Bee him this morning besides
the nurses was Dr. Bliss. lie found
him much refreshed and feeling
hopeful, more bo than ever. The
president told the doctor that be felt
his stiffness aud soreness more acute
ly to-day, because his mind was
clearer than ever. He described his
feeling as that of a man who had his
arm broken. He meant, of course,
that it was so different to him. Dr.
Bliss says the muscle is shattered,
aud is that one upon which almost
every nerve of the body depends.
The cords of the eye and back are
necessarily stiff and his whole body
is unmanageable. These circum
stances have no effect upon him
more than to call out remarks con
cerning them. He makes no com
plaint and never exhibits irritation.
In making the examination and
dressing the wounds he has to be
moved considerably. He rather
longs for this operation for he says
he feols so much better after it is
over, as shown by the morning bul
letin. The pulse was lower and the
other outside symptoms were more
favorable than yesterday."
The best course to pursue in re
lation to the assassin Gitteau is pa
tiently to await full and complete
investigation, which doubtless will
be mado in due time and in a thor
ough manner, and we doubt not in
a lawful way. It ib possible that
even such an investigation may fail
to reach all the facts connected with
tho assassin and Iub movements, but
if a strict and lawful investigation
does not bring to light the whole
truth, it is far better that it be made
under no extraordinary excitement
but coolly, calmly, and according to
law, let the dark transaction with all
the accompanying particulars be un
covered. Congress should have
made provision long ago by law to
meet all tho shades of crimo con
nected with assassins. In anticipa
tion of the insanity dodgo on the
part of assassins, congress should
enact that they hang by the neck
until they are dead every person
who attempts to destroy the life of
the President, and we would go
further and incorporate a provision
that any person who attempted or
did assassiuale any man or woman
holding office under the government
of the United States should be han
ged. And still a further provision
should be enacted that all fanatic
and chronic office seekers who vis
ited the President in person de
manding an office should at once be
declared vagrants and notified to
leave the Capitol and if not at once
complyiug, tbey should be impris
oned for safe keeping.
The supreme court of Michigan
has recently decided a case in which
one man lent another money where
with to get up a corner on wheat.
The lender brought suit to recover
the money back. The conrt held
that a combination entered into to
artificially affect the price of any
necessity of life was illegal, and the
loan in this case could not be recovered.
Ex-United States Senator P.
"W. Hitchcock died Sunday morn
ing at his residence on Twentieth
and Dodgo street, Omaha, after a
brief illuoss. He has been in poor
health for two years. An abscess
had formed in his right side, from
which escaped pus into the pritorial
cavity, which generally results iu
speedy death and which was the
cause in his case of his sudden death.
In 1877 Mr. Hitchcock lost his wife,
and something less than a year ago

leaves only two sons Gilbert M. and
John G., the former aged 21 years
and tho latter 16. Gilbert has re
cently opened a law office in Omaha.
His funeral took placo on tho after
noon of the 11th and his remains
were deposited beside those of his
wife and daughter in Prospect Hill
George Wilson, secretary of tho
New York Chamber of Commerce,
has telegraphed Postmaster General
James that the members of the cham
ber of commerce had subscribed
$250,000 to bo presented to Mrs.
Garfield, both as a token of their
sincere esteem and sympathy, and as
a means of relieving tho mind of the
President entirely from anxiety
with regard to the future of his fam
ily. Postmaster General James Bent

has been deliverod to Mrs. Garfield.
On receipt of it she remarked there
was so much that was touching and
beautiful iu tho sympathy of the

The Courier-Journal of Louisville,
Ky., prints somo romarka from Jeff
erson Davis addressed to Mr. Find
ley S. Collins, relative to the assassi
nation of the President. He says
"the evil influence to which you
refer as causing tho bitterness felt
toward southern men, it may fairly
bo oxpocted will give way to sober
sense. I will not, like the telegram
you cite in regard to the attempted
assassination of the President, say I
am thankful the assassin was not a
southern man, but will say I regret
that he is an American. The crime,
black enough iu itself, has a deeper
dye from tho mercenary motive
which seems to have prompted it.
I sincerely trust tho President may
Another sensation was created in
"Washington City on the 5th, by a
peculiar-looking man, dressed as a
farmer, and who carried a shot gun,
appoaring at Police headquarters and
walking up to the sergeant's desk
asking for "Jim Blaine, and if he
lived thero," somo one told him in
the street that he lived there. He
was asked "what do you want of
him." I have been specially ordain
ed, was tho reply, "to shoot him, and
here is the gun to do it with." He
was informed that Blaine would be
in soon, and while he was waiting
for him arrangements were made to
capture the lunatic. He gave his
name as Daniel McNamara of Prince
"William county, Va.
Another lunatic wandering about
"Washington City inquiring for Vice
President Arthur, and declaring his
intention to kill him produced an
other sensation in the city. And
still another miserable fellow found
his way into the office of Adjutant
General Drum, talking about the
danger the country was in, and in
gesticulating knocked down a hand
some drop light. It was thought
best to put him out of the office, but
ho kept all at defiance, and flourish
ing his arms, cried out : "If Garfield
dies it will be all right, for Arthur
will die too, if I havo to kill him
myself." The police were sent for
and the excited man carried out.
Secretary Kirkwood has ap
pointed F. Laflcsche, an Indian, as a
clerk in the Indian bureau. This
young Indian received all his educa

habits and fair intelligence. The
secretary has made this appointment
and doubtless others will follow
