Special to the Record-Union.
Washington, Jan. li..—David T. Lit
tler, of Illindis, who was mentioned as
tho agent of Senator Cameron in the pur
eliase of silver bullion, appeared before
the Silver Pool Investigating Committee
After relating how ho had bought and
sold between §40,000 and $.'>o,ooo worth of
silver early in the summer, before any
legislation on the matter was had, Littler
was asked if he had purchased' any for
Littler said he bought §40,000 or $50,000
worth of silver for himself, and a few
weeks later §100.000 worth for Senator
Cameron. Roth transactions were prior
to final action on the silver legislation.
Littler said he wished to charai-tcrize in
most unequivocal terms the general state
ment that he had bean connected with a
silver pool looking to the inlhience of
legislation as an unqualilied lie.
When asked about tho reputation of
Owenby, wlro had been mentioned in
connection with the alleged silver pool,
he said that Owenby seemed a clever fel
low, but he would think better of him
when he got back the money he had
Littler said he had no knowledge of any
silver pool; he never asked any one in
Congress to voto for silver k'gis'ation,
and he went into the speculation without
the solicitation of any one. As near as he
could remember, he made more than
eight and less than six hundred dollars in
thetr.iusaction. Cameron made between a
thousand and fifteen hundred. No Repre
sentative, Senator or other government
oliicer ever told witness that he was in
terested in silver.
The attention of witness being directed
to the testimony of "Vest, he said he had
talked with Vest exactly as with Cam
eron and others.
Be-ing asked for the names of tho others,
the witness could not remember, and
! turning toward Representative Rowell,
said: "Perhaps with Captain Rowell, as
well as with Illinois friends." lie did
not mean tliat he recalled talking with
Rowell, and used the name only because
that was as likely as talking with any
Littler further said he never offered any
one any inducements whatever, except to
express an opinion that there would be
an advance in silver.
THE PRESIDENTS' AGREEMENT.

Washington, Jan. Sl.—The Committee
on Railroatls of the House held an extra
session to-day to consider the resolution
submitted four days ago by Anelerson of
Kansas, which directs the Interstate Com

nature of the organization recently
formed by the Presidents of some West
The resolution directs the Commission
not only to find out the extent of the or
ganization, but to report whether or not
the existing law relating to combines
reaches far enough to protect the people
against any increased freight rates.
The hearing before the committee this
morning was quite interesting. It called
out a number of railroad attorneys and
Anderson addressed the committee for
an hour, saying that in urging a favora
ble report he was tloing all in his power
to protect the people in the great region
west of Chicago antl St. Louis from undue
railroad burdens. Ho was safe in saying
that the organization had not been formed
to benefit the people. It hatl been formed
to benefit the members of the organiza
tion, and upon the statement of Jay
Gould that it was intended to increase the
earnings, was a matter in which one
third of the people in the Uniteel States
were interested directly or indirectly, and
many of those interested were pioneers,
who were not able to protect themselves,
and not able to bear the new heavy bur
The speech was a most earnest appeal
for a favorable report.
The committee decided to report favor
ably, after a short consultation. The re

will be passed in that body in response to

Teller asked Aldrich how long he
alloweel for debate on the resolution, re
marking that it was rumored that some
arbitrary means were to be resorted to to
force a decision.
Aldrich said he took it for granted that
there would be no closing of the debate
except by action of the Senate itself, and
asked unanimous consent that a vote be
taken on the resolution and amentiments
at 5 o'clock to-morrow.
Gorman was delighted that the Senator
resorted to that proper and orderly
method, rather than depend on the ipse
dixit of the presiding officer, whose repu
tation for intelligence and fairness as a
presiding officer has yet to be made.
Cockrell then closed his argument. It
was useless, he said, to try to disguise the
purpose of the rule. The only object was
to pass the force bill. Everything else
was made subordinate to the whims of
the Senator from Massachusetts, and
apostrophising Mr. He>ar, Cockrell ex
claimed: "Shame upon you, my friend
from Massachusetts, who now attempts
to force upon the people of Massachusetts,

fession that they are no longer capable of

Cooper of Indiana, rising to a question
of privilege, had read a resolution offered
by him on September 4th last, making
certain charges against the Commissioner
of Pensions, and asking for a broadening
of the investigation. The resolution had
been referretl to the select committee ex
amining the previous charges, and on the
11th of September Chairman Morrill had
been directed to report the resolution, but
had never done so. Cooper therefore
offered a resolution directing the commit

Quite a lengthy debate took place on
points of order, etc.. in the course of

unanimously decided that the resolution
had been improperly referred to it, and
within one hour the resolution* was re

justifiable, as Cushing fired in defense of

nephew of King Leopold and heir to the
throne of Belgium, dietl this morning.
The cause is alleged to be bronchitis.
His death has caused a tremendous sensa

Prince Baudouin was born June 3,1809.
He was the captain of the Belgian Car

people aro parading the streets or are
gathered in knots on tho street corners,
eagerly discussing tho situation. On all
sides the warmest expressions of sym
pathy with the royal family are heard.
Prince Baudouin's popularity and brill
iant talents, and the bright hopes cen
teroel by tho Belgians on his future career,
make them feel the Prince's loss in the
keenest manner possible. The news of
the Prince's death has been withheld from
his sister, Princess Henrietta, a beautiful
girl 20 years of age, who is dangerously
sick from inflammation of'the lungs.

their utmost to prevent the usual noise
in the streets from arousing the sus

The most alarming rumors have been
circulated on all sides and grew as the
day progressed. It is openly asserted
that the death ofthe Prince was a repeti
tion of the circumstances surrounding
the death of Archduke Rudolph, the heir
to the Austrian throne, who met his
death in such a mysterious manner on
January 30, 1889.
It is added that a beautiful German
governess, who had been recently ban
ished from the Belgian court by order of
King Leopold, was in some way con
net-ted with the death of Prince Baudouin.
Rumor also hatl it that there was an in
trigue between the governess and the
Prince, anel that the result of the liaison
is said to have been the birth of a child.
In any case the death of Prince
Baudouin is surrounded with mystery

death was caused by hemorrhages follow

The physicians also assert that the
Prince caught a chill while watching be

has been ill for some time past.
But these statements are far from con
vincing the people of the real cause of tho
death of Prince Baudouin given to the
public, and startling rumors are already
referred to and aro popularly believed to
be founded on a solid basis of fact.
