It has been decided to make no attempt to probe for the bullet. In New York, at the corner of Madison-square, near the Fifth-avenue Hotel, is a stereopticon bulletin sheet, where, during the Presidential election, the results of the poll were flashed after dark upon a large white disc on the side of a house for the information of great crowds of excited electors. On Monday night thousands came again to gaze at the stereopticon, which took up and continued the start- ling despatches in the sensational evening papers. Despatch after despatch flashed on the illuminated space towards which a sea of anxious faces of men and women turned. The symptons are not so favourable," Tympanitis is setting in," "Not one chance in a thousand," were the first mes- sages on the illuminated disc, then came in detail official bulletins announcing that the patient must die before mid- night. Among the warmest expressions of sympathy received from organizations are some from different Hebrew congre- gations. As rumours of a conspiracy still circulate, Mr. Secretary Blaine has placed an emphatic condemnation on the reports tending to create an impression that Guiteau is a tool of a con- spiracy. Next to hearing from the President's bedside, the American public take a chief interest in learning how Europe, and more particularly England, regards the President's misfortune. The strong personal interest which the English people have shown has been warmly praised. The Queen's inquiry was the earliest to reach Washington, and was followed by every indication of the warmest English sympathy. The cable tokens since Saturday have done more to promote the Anglo-American friendship than any event since the payment of the Geneva award. The German Emperor, it is said, was very deeply affected by the news of the crime, and immediately caused his sym- pathy to be transmitted to the wounded President.
