LONO BBANCH , September 12. Dr.
Agnew , immediately after the morn
ing dressing , spoke freely and cheer
fully about the president's condition ,
this morning , regarding it as favor
able. Ho said : "The president is
much better this morning than ho was
last night. Ho has slept better than
for some time , and rested very well
indeed. Thu affection of the lung is
less troublesome than it has boon since
ho'was in Washington. His temper
ature has fallen , as has also his pulse
and respiration , and the condition is
.much improved. " Attorney General
MacYoagh was cheerful , and spoke
strongly. He said : "I have seen Dr.
Agnew and Dr. Bliss , and both tell
mo that the president passed the night
in comfort , and sound and
Ho awakened less frequently , and
when ho did awaken seemed refreshed
and stronger. At no time did ho re
main awaku longer than was neces
sary for him to take refreshments.
His condition this morning is better
than it was yef.torday , and better than
on Saturday. This every way im
proved ; ho is bright and cheerful , and
has an appetite , and ate a good break
fast. I am assured that the long af
fection is much better less serious
and gradually passing away. From
what attending surgeons tell
me I believe we are warranted in
, / taking a morp cheerful and hopeful
view of ttio"case. " - -
watched with the president the first
part of the night and says to-day the
president is a great deal butter and
slept soundly , awakening as unfre- '
/quent intervals. The lung trouble
/ has been misunderstood , and is not as
ecrious as represented , but temporary
\und passim ; away better now than
when patient was removed from
Washington. This trouble is purely
local and not spreading nor necessari
ly serious. No Indication that lung
trouble aiiscs from pus cavity or from
blood poisoning but may bo duo to
bad condition of the blood , but not
pyamia. Ho suffers no pain.from it ,
and coughed less last night. Ho has
passed safely over yesterday's depres
General Swann , who succeeded Col.
llockwell at the bedside , says sub I
stantially the same as Col. Rockwell ,
and that the president took nourish
ment and relished it ; that yustcroay's
depression was merely ono of ex
pected developments. The case is
bettor now than before it. This
f * morning ho is bright , cheerful and
alert and hungry. The breakfast con
sisted of turtlu soup , porridgu , milk ,
toast and tea. Thu bulletin this morn M
ing produced tl s ;
on the public and renewed hopes. ti
Early this morning it was very dark tiE
and gloomy , but towards 9 a. m. the ! > '

bright and pleasant. Ex-Collector tvOl

the president easily removed from his joi

from a loosening cold , the asl

accumulated during the night. This
phloquum was accumulated readily de
without nausea , and thrown off with foi

to do this is attributed entirely to an Hi

"How are you , Mr. James ? " fou
"Very well , I thank you , " replied grc
the cabinet ollicor , "and I am very ros
glnd to scu you looking ao well , Mr.
President. "
The president smiled with an ex
pression of great satisfaction. Mr.
James then approached the bedside.
The president easily raised his arm
clean from the bed , and shook hands
with a long and hearty grasp , which
James describes as warm And aston
ishingly strong. So steady and pow
erful was the president' * grip tlmt
Postmaster James Bays ho was
amazed ,
The President "Tako a chair and
sit down hero. I wish to talk with
you. "
Gen. James "Oh , no , Mr. Presi
dent , thank you ; I would prefer to
stand , and as I cannot really remain
any length of timo. I will not sit
down as I fear I should find myself
yielding to thu temptation io remain
beyond my K train time , which is at
hand. "
The President "Well Mr.
, . Post
master General , how have the affairs
in your department , been Eoing on ? ' "
Postmaster Gunorul "Very well
indeed. The attorney general and
myself have established a regular sys
tem of civil service which is doing
well , and everything is moving along
smoothly. Wo have mado' no ap-
pointmontti or removals. "
' "Tis well " said
, the president ,
smiling with pleasure ; " and how
much have you saved the country ? "
Postmaster General "Thus far there
has been savo'd iu the postal depart
ment about $1,500,000 , and the sys
tem and economy through which this
has been accomplished is established
now. "
President "Is it on n permanent
basin , and will saving go on ) " und the
president elevated his eyes and look
ed the cabinet official full in the face.
Postmaster-General " Yea , Mr.
President , the system is established.
It will last and will continue to oper
ate in the future as well as thus far. "
' I am very glad to hear you say so.
It is well , indeed , Mr James , " and
then withdrew. Ho had been re
quested by the surgeons to refrain
from allowing conversation with the
president to turn much on the depart
ment talk , and not allow it to go HO
far as to unduly excite the president's
stamps the report published this morning - i
ing concerning the funding of § 201 , 1

lid ho felt justified in going to PJiil-

will bo closed up naturally.
The attending physicians believe that
by Wednesday morning every trace
of the parotid trouble will have en

rapiditygmnulation being strong and

of the bullet to its present location is
a distance of about nineteen inches.
The last incision made in

the ball at a point six inches
from the mouth of the wound. The
most reliable nnd pliable catheter in
thu possession of the surgeons was
this afternoon carefully inserted and
used for the purpose of definitely as

Dr. Bliss told n reporter that E
at this examination the cath
eter could not bo inserted beyond
nine inches , at which distance it met
a solid obstruction of completed gran-
ilation. That is , the wound is to-night
healed up solidly for three and one-
half inches from the furthest point
the catholor cosily reached some time
ago. The solid growth from the ball
outward is three and one-half inches.
Thcro is ono and one-half inches in
the healing process in the path of the
bullet wound since Saturday morning ,
a remarkable gain and the greatest
made in the entire illness of the pres
ident , and ono indication ot the recent
progress made by the patient. The
channel of the wound for the entire
distance of the nine inches is still
open , ia

tity. The rib tnat was shattered by the

said this afternoon that ho had re
ceived no oflicial knowledge ot the af
fair , and did not intend
to take any action until such
information was given him. On the
other hand , the war department elli
cials say they havu nothing whatever
to do with the matter , -jind if
Col. Corkhill makes requisition for
the man ho can got him without any
opposition from the war department.
The attempted shooting has of course
been the talk of the city to-day , and
naturally all sympathy in on the side
of thu soldier. At thu White House
some of thu employes regretted Ma

The question has been raised here
whether Guiteau can bp tried fur
murder should thu president die at
Elboron. In a legal aspect the case pre
sented would bo simply that of a per
son who ha * received a mortal wound
in the District of Columbia , from the
effect f which hia death had
taken place elsewhere , and under
these circumstances the court of the
district would not have jurisdiction
of thu offense as homicide , but would
bo homicide to thu consideration of
the assault merely with disposition ,
