NEW YORK'S SENATORIAL
The long and bitter contest , over
the election of 'United States Sena
tors in the New York Legislature, to
fill the places of Es• Senators Conk
ling and Platt, was bappily termin
ated on Friday fast by the election
of Hop. Eibridge G. Laplurni, for
Mr. Conklipg's term, Mr. Platt's
term having been filled a week
vious by 3 the electiou of Hon. War-
Tell Miller." o
Mr. Laphani's election seeds to
have been the result of a compro
mise conference . held on Friday
morning, at which Conkliugs friends
in the Legislature withdrew their
opposition amidst the happiest of
feeling attd agreed to support Lap
ham. The final vote in Joint Con
ventiOn stood as'follows :
The Joint Convention met at 4 p:
m., andkated- for Senator with the
following result : - • "
In the Senate, Laphani 22, Polter
In the Assembly, Lapbam. 70,
Potter 37.. •
Total, Lapham 92, Potter 42.
Necessary' to a choice. 68..
The chair, announced the election
of Lapham - nnd declared the. Joint
This happy conclusion of a pro
tracted struggle wil tend to har
monize the` pnrty divisions in New
York, and leave the party in a stron
ger position than befpre. . One thing
may be said of COnk i lings friends
the l.r..gislature that u s to their
credit. They dare not in the face
of an outspoken public ' sentiment
against it, vote with the -Demociats
to adjourn• the . Legislature -without
an -election. The Democrats had
vainly-hoped for . such a res Ult, and
are deeply disappointed thiit they
have failed. Theiesporisibility Was
of too grave a character •Tor the
Conkling members to assume it.
The result teaches that -public
men must not set themselves above
the poWef which creates them.
When publiC 'sentiment • itaserts its
power men who come in conflict
with it must give away.. This is a
lesson Conkling and Platt have
dearly learned'. In answer to the
alleged inability of the newly elected
Senators to fill their places With
credit to,the State, it, may .safelY be
predicted that tlinyAnow .too much

with the popnlitr sentiment of the
people they are chosen to represent.

WAsuusaa . 0N,31i 23, 10 P. 11.- •The,
explanation given by the surgtons,. of
the unfavorable symptoms which min
ifested themselves in the President's
case, to-day, is as',follows:
Soinetime during the night, or ear
.morning, the patient's wound

tinued. A partial , or complete ,putt
cavity was thus trained and,the dis
charge from the mouth. of the, wound .
nearly ceased. The natural result was
a' chill followed by a higher fever,, the
patient's pulse rising td a inaximum
of about 130, andl temperature 104.
As rigor followed by increiwed feVer

'complications, it caused at first a great
deal of anxiety. A careful examina
tion, however, of the pus discharged
by the wound showed its charaeter
perfectly : normal and healthy ; and, as
far as appeared from the patient's
general condition, I all indications of
pyiremia were absent::
These facts relieved at once the fear
of blood poisoning. An internal 'ex
amination was then made, of the
dominal and hepatic regionsywitli
view of ascertaining whether there
were any signs of abcess at the sup
posed location of the :bullet. No. un
usual tenderness was found in that
part of the body,any other mdiea
tion -Of a chawredi condition. From
these facts, taken' in connection with
the sdanty out-flowof pus, the
aion .was drawn that an obstruction
existed near the inner end of the' drain
age' tube, which prevented a free dis
charge. This imprisonment _of pus,
technically known as "the 'pus cavity,"
is entirely adequate to explain the chill
and increased' fever, since they are its,
natural and almost inevitable conse
quences. 'lt was at first thought that
the obstruction might be the result of
the process of healing,.which had whol
ly or in part closed the wound between
the end of the drainage tube and the
-deep suppurating surftice. Early this'
.hoWever, the obstructiOn
wholly or partially gave way and the
outtlOW of pus becaine freer. The
nausea from which the patient suffered
subsided and lie obtained relief. This
proved that the obstruction - had not
been of apermanent character. .
At the evening dressing of the wound
the diseha - rge of pus was quite as copi
ous as usual. Since that time the pa

this morning and the necessity for it,
Reyburn stated :that.the,idlreetlon

It was thence deflected still firther
downward and a. little to the right so
as to make an acute angle with the
line of the back. When a probe was
introduced to the wound to the depth
of three or three and a half inches, its
directiop was such that its inner end

in the presence of Agnew. and Hamil—
ton, this mornipg showed that a pus'
cavity had formed in the track of the
ball' near and beyond the point where
it glanced from, the rib ; and that this
cavity could be reached by a direct in;
cision three inches below the mouth of
the wound. It was decided at once to
pet form the operation. '
A wide - cut was made into the pus
cavity, which 'was reached at a depth
of little more than an inch; •with the
aid, Of a probe and- a pair or forceps,

The drainage - tube _ has been left as

the tube may perhaps be withdrawn
from the old one in order to ,allow the
latter to heal.
The incision, was inn direct line with
the deeper parts of the wound, and it
is thought that the pus will • escape
through it without any - of the obstruc
tion which impeded the outflow along
the track of the ball and which caused,
the pus cavity.
In reply to a questiO'n'whether anoth
er pus cavity was likely to form' and
bring:about a recurrence of , the'alarm

that the eonditioh of the, Pivsident has
not materially changed since noon. The
febrile rise, which has alwa i r occurred
lin the latter part of the "hy, is now
'becoming noticeable, but the fever is
not high and is not accompanied by
any particularly unfavorable symtoms.
11:30 v. sr.—Dr.l3l* said to-night
that the President has had, generally
speaking, a very quiet and comfortable
day. There has been no recurrence
of rigor and up to threes. 31.; the pa
tient was entirely free from fever. At
that hour however the daily febrile use
began and eontiniied until the evening
examination, when his , pulse "reached
aboht.its - msidninm of 110, and tem
perature height of .101.5. Since then,
both have slowly but steadily fallen.
This febrile rise is the - usual afternoon
fever which the patient had all of last
week • and although it is a little more
strongly marked to-day than it' was
previous to the formation of the pus
cavity: Saturday it does not in • the
judgment of the surgeons, point to
any disturbance or indicate any un
favorable, change. It will probably
subside entirely before midnight.
The nourishment given* to-day con
sisted of milk, :beef extract and a little
toast, and was sufficient in quantity _to
fully maintain the patient's strength.

Replying to questions Dr. Bliss said
"There is a posSibility of the formation
of another puS cavity, although there
is no reason at present to expect it,
because. the discharge , is now free and
uninterrupted. Shonld,' however anoth

once indicated by tbe general constitu 7 -
tional disturbance which it would cause.
'here is no danger of the formation of
a pus cavity without the accompaniment
of warning symptoms, such as a hag
gard and depressed expression of face,
rigor, and greatly increased fever,
These symptoms would at once show
the nature of the disturbing influence??
Elting asked whether the blood could
become poisoned by the reabsorption of
pus from the hidden and enclosed.cav
ity, Dr. Bliss said: "Healthy 'us is
not taken up by the blood and cannot
contaminate it. It is, only when the
pus becomes disorganized and diseased I
that it is re-absorbed so as to cause
pyremia. The . President has never at
any time had a symptom of pyremia,
and the period during - which that com
plication is likely to occur is now nearly
past. Pytemia generally manifests it
self before the' end of the fourth week.

to apprehend it in this case; and there
has certainly been no indication of it as
Dr. Bliss' attention was called to the
fact that five employes of the Execu
tive Mansion are suffering from mala
rial fever or malaria in some form due
to the condition of the Potomac Flats;
and the queStion was asked whether
the President was not to some extent
similarly affeeted, and whether the ap
parent, periodicity of the afternoon
fever did not indicate malarial influence:
He replied: "No . symptoms of malaria
have been observed in the President's
oase, and the regular recurrence of his
;fever between 3- rant. and midnight is
due to other causes. Surgical fever is
always the highest in the afternoon,
and evening and lowest.in the morning.
About ten grains of quinine have been
given' the President daily for two weeks

counteract any supposed influence of

excitement and anxiety throughout The
city with regard to the Condition of the .
President to-day; than at any time
since last Saturday mornin4. The re

from the wound at the morning dress-

painful and weakening operation. The
reticence of the attending surgeons
with regard to the details of the Presi-
dent's case, was taken as a tacit admit'
sion that something was wrong. A
personal note which one of the suraeons
happened to send to' Prof. Bell, was. in-

was to be at once located by an induc

resort; and the general impression pre-
