WASHINGTON , September 4.--Tho
physciana have decided to remove the
president to Long 'Branch as soon as
liis condition and necessary arrange
ments will permit. The details of
the trip will not bo decided upon un
til the limo is fixed. Thia will proba
bly bo within a few days.
The evening bulletin of the presi
dent's condition was the most satis
factory document of the kind issued
in many days. Last evening after
consultation with Iho physicians , At
torney-General McVeagh telegraphed
to President Roberts and Vice-Presi-
. dent Cossott , of the Pennsylvania
railroad , advising thorn that it was
very probable it would bo decided in
the morning to remove the president
to LOUR Branch very early next
week , nnd requesting them to con
sider the best method of doing so and
to arrange for it as in their judgment
Boomed best. It was added that the
removal was desired upon the same
bed on which the president now lies.
These gentlemen promptly answered
that they would have n car specially
arranged for the president's conven
ient carriage , nnd would bo nblo to
place it , with two other cars and an
engine , at the disposal of tlio presi
dent's physicicians , probably aa early
as , Monday morning , and that all
proper precautions would bo taken to
diminish the fatigues and other an
noyances of the journey whenever un
The physicians now intend to have
the president carried in his bed down
stairs and placed on a largo wagon of
some kind , on which ho will bo driven
carefully to the Sixth street depot
and lifted inlo the car. At Long
Branch the presidont'c bed will bo
lifted into a wagon again and drive
to ono of the cottages near the Elbon ,
where the president will boquattered.
Dr. Hamilton wont to Now York last
night nnd will meet the. train at Long

LONO BRANCH , September 4. Mr.
Jones , proprietor of the Elbon hotel ,
has ollercd the exclusive use of his
hotel to the president and fainilyand
cabinet. Mr. Ghas. Franklin , whoso
largo cottage adjoins Elbon house ,
lias offered its usn for the president
and family. The hotel is full of
guests , but all of them have signified
/ their willingness to give up their
npartmcnta for the proiidential party.
The hotel is acarsely largo enough to
accommodate the party , and Dr.
Hamilton , who ia hero arranging details -
tails , says Mr. Tranklin'a offer will
probably bo accepted. The cottage is
directly on a bluff overlooking the
sea , und only a few hundred feet from
the hotel , with which it is connected
.by . telephone.
The arrangements , if meeting with
-approval with the physicians , are to
have the president removed to Mr.
Franklin's cottage , while the doctors
and cabinet will occupy the hotel.
There ia evidence of nn approaching
atorm. The September equinoxial is
generally a very severe ono , and with
the heavy blow would greatly disturb
a sick patient in any of the modern
buildings. It would also cause much
dampness , because of the penetrating
For this reason it has been sug
gestcd that it would bo safer lo re
move Iho president to the Conlral
hotel , which is the only brick hotel at
Long Brunch. It was especially built
.for a winter hotel , having n hollow
.space between the brick walls lo pre
vent dampness. The hotel is also a
square from the ocean , and would
escape any fury of n severe storm.
< Ono objection to the Central hotel
will bo its close proximity to the Cen
tral and Novv Jersey railroad depot.
Still the railroad authorities have
promised to stop nil blowing of whia
ties and blowing off of steam , and to
run trains slowly by the depot in caao
of the president being brought to the
hotel. The hotel is but 100 feet from
the depot and containa forty rooroa.
Dr. Hamilton is of the opinion thai
the president must bo removed al
once , because of this morning's aymp-
toms. If removed lo Ebcron , Iho
railroad Authorities are in readiness
to run coaches containing the presi
dent on n trestle track from Eberoi
depot to the hotel , a distance of obou
half a mile. The track can be laid ii
five hours lime.

The condition of the president to
ny has been much more satisfactory
linn was generally expected after the
nnouncoment in the morning bullo-
in of renewed vomiting. The cir-
umstancos of this trouble scorns tote
to about as follows : Between f ) nnd

d slightly. It caused him no great
iscemfort and ho soon fell asleep.

bottom. He soon went to sleep and
rested well.
Soon after daylight he asked for
some squirrel broth , and it was given
lim. Ho took it with relish , and it
vas not followed by gastric disturb-
inco. >
The news of the vomiting caused
considerable excitement ubmjt the
city It has been so often repeated
atcly that if the president's stomach
gave out there was no hope for him

[ Jenoral Gjorgc-Crook , commander of

between the yoara 1871 and 187 i , and
conquered the sixmo Indiana who are-
now reported t have inaugurated
what will doubtless lx > another bloody
campaign. What lw says concerning
thoao dangerous hostiles will be road
with especial interott.
( ion. Crook wiia found by a ropro-
aentativo of TUB lHn : aeated on the
spacious lawn in front of the residence
of Cnpt. Hoborts , on Whcaton atroot ,
enjoying the peaceful moonlight and
discuiMing the recent outbreak of the
Apache redskins and the meagre ac
counts of their massacre ot the garri
son of Fort Apacho. Ho greeted the
visitor pleasantly , and enquired if
there had boon any later nowa re
ceived than that contained in the Sun
day morning papers. 01110 confirmatory -
atory dispatches were shown him , and
in reply to a question the General
said :
"The nuwa is so meagre that ,
of course , it is impossible at this dis
tance to nay what may h : < * vo been the
causes leading to the outbreak of
those White Mountain Indians.
I would suspicion , though ,
knowing something of the
action of the interior department
since I left that command to assume
thia ono , ttiat an attempt was made
to force the Indians out of the moun
tains down on the reservation about
San Carloa , whoroit is bothlow , sandy
nnd dry.
"At the tiiho I aoaumod command
ches they occupied a tor-
and numbered 20,000. Thbso wore
divided into twenty or moro baiula.
over which Pedro the Indian reported
an leading the nmssnoro was chief.
Of those 20,000 , six thousand or more
were hostiles and lived in the White
Mountain country , from 8,000 to 10 ,
000 above the San Carloa country.
" 1 took command in 1871 , but the
government rostrninedlno from making
campaign against them for mote than
i year lator. When I did attempt to
mbduo them they allowed n moat doa-
> erato front nnd fought with greatbrav-
; ry and skill until the middle of the
'ollowing May , when they surrendered.
"Tho campaign was a very havdone.
The country in which they live is
ilmost inaccessible. The lava beds
jf the Modocs , in which Capt. Jack
md hia band made Bitch a remarkable
stand , are macudnmi/od roads in com
parison with the heights und crags

ionic. They are very bravo , despor-
ito nnd the moat cunning Indiana on
.hu American continent , being fur
superior to the Sioux in intellect.
"Durim ? my campaign against thorn
1 found it very dilllcult to track them
at limes for considerable distances , as
i band might travel fifty miles at
[ ilucoa in the mountains nnd never
ouvoa track or trace oil the hard lava
formation. 1 was assisted , however ,
l > y scouts from other bunds of Iho
sumo Iribe , who knew their defiles
mil hiding places , BO that I waa able
ID aenrch them out.
"Tho old reservation of San Carliw
included the country of the While
mountains. Since Gen , Wilcox t < * jk
command , thu mountain part of the
reservation was cut olf.and an atlcmpl
was made lo gel Iho Indians inhabit
ing that part to tut down i lo the lower
or lands. I think all did go except
Pedro's Iwnd. Subsequently the
White mountain Indians were allowed
to go back , und they huvo remained
there since.
"What makes these Indiana eape
cially formidable ia the fact that they
can't bo starved out of their hiding ,

This growth h a a hard outsidewhic )

inaido core or heart , is exposed. Thia
core ia frequently aix inches in dium

tasteless and insipid. The Indiana
dig a hole , build a lire in it , and thoi
throw in atones , which become hoatui

Another lire i * kindled over Una , and

A Mild-Mannerod Man Who-
Became a Hawpy Father.
Last night a well-known physician
sat in his-ofllco in this city , reading av.
copy of. TIIK BEE. A man slid in at- ,
lently and stood before him. In the >
faintest kind of it whisper ho said :
' Doctor , plciino coiuo to my house ; ,
my wife is sick. "
' 'Anything serious1 asked the doc
tor , ia his usual tone.
"No , nothing , " said the man.
"Thou I'll coiuo in u few minutca ,
after I road my paper , " said tlm
"Just na you. please , doctor , " aaiil
tlui man , humbly.
In the course of n short time tha
doctor got out liia horsoaud proceeded
very leisurely to the residence of the
man. An ho entered the gate an un
usual commotion warned him that ,
something unusual was transpiring' .
Entering rapidly ho wont to the bed- ,
side. A glance informed him what
was the trouble. ' Turning to tlia Jiua-
baud , ho said :
"You uro n nice fellow. Why did ,
you not toll mo what was the matter ?
Hero I am totally unprepared. I.
must go to the oilluo again. "
"No , no , no , " said the man , faut- .
ly. "You can't KO. "
Thu doctor BOOH discovered thnt he *
could not , and he left the happy fath
