ALL HOPE OF HIS RECOVERY GIVEN UP. Rlood Poisoning Has Set In, and His Death May Occur at Any Moment. Washington, Jan. 23d. — Senator Hearst has now been given up by the doctors and members of his own family. Blootl-poisoning has set in, and he may elie at any moment. It is generally be lieved that he will not live .three days. The technical name of his malady, which was superinelueed by the stomach trouble, is anemic poisoning. Dr. Ward of New York, an old friend of the family, and consulting physician of Dr. Lincoln of this city, was tele graphed for last night and arrived this morning. He has no hesitation in saying that Senator Hearst's ease is hopeless, but dee-lines to state how many hours he may live. Mrs. Hearst has all along refused to be lieve that her husband was as bad ofT as reported by the newspapers. She thought his trouble was only a kind of inflamma tion erf the stomach. The doctors did not disclose the Senator's real condition to her, well knowing that it would only worry her, and that Senator Hearst, see ing the elistress in her face, would sur mise its e-ause and woulel suffer in conse quence. Up to a week ago W. R. Hearst thought his lather was improving and would get well, but last Friday his conversation showed that ho had full knowledge of Senator Hearst's eonelition. Mrs. Hearst is almost overcome with grief. At midnight reports to the California Associated press say the Senator is very low; at times conscious, and at other times unconscious. It is likely that he will live for several days yet, "though a report of his death at any moment woulel not be surprising. 5 a. m.—No change yet in Senator Hearst's condition. «. CHILE REVOLUTION.

The general opinion throughout Chile seems to be that unless President Balma ceda promptly resigns tho whole of the military of Chile will revolt. Foreigners residing in Chile are safe from molestation, except the Italian resi j dents, who are accused by the Balmaceda j party of having encouraged the revolu tionists.

NATIONAL CAPITAL. Further Testimony in the Silver Pool Investigation. DAMAGING TESTIMONY AGAINST SENATOR CAMERON. Change in tho Sailing: Dates of Steam ers Carrying Australian Malls From San Francisco—The Railroad Prcst alcnts' Agreement to bo Inapilrcd Into by a Congressional Committee. 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 to-day. 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 Senator Cameron. 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 loaned Owenby. 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 one. 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. It Will he Investigated hy a Congres sional Committee. 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 merce Commission to inquire into the nature of the organization recently formed by the Presidents of some West ern railroads. 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 cithers interested. 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 den. The speech was a most earnest appeal for a favorable report. The committee decided to report favor ably, after a short consultation. The re port will be submitted to the House possibly to-morrow, and it is estimated by some of the most conservative that it will be passed in that body in response to the general uprising and agitation against railroad pools. AUSTRALIAN MAILS. Change Mnalo In thai Sailing Days From San Fraucisco. Washington, Jan. 23.—The following has been issued from the Postoffice De partment regarding a change in the Brit ish-Australian mail schedule: Office of the General Superintend-) ext of the Railway Mail Service, V Washington, D.

CONGRESSIONAL THE SENATE OCCUPIED BY THE CLOTURE RESOLUTION. The Houso Meets, Rut Failas to Trans act any Business of Note. Special to the Record-Union. Washington, Jan. 23.—When the Sen ate after recess met at 11 o'clock this morning it fouiitl itself without a quo rum, anel is now quietly awaiting the appearance of one. This session was in continuation of that of yesterelay. At 11:10 a quorum appeared and busi ness was proceeded with. Cockrell thereupon resumed tho floor in order to continue his argument against the cloture resolution. He yielded, however, to Hoar, who added a few words to what he said last evening. 6 When Hoar had finished Cockrell again took the floor anel resumed his argument, saying, in the course of his remarks, that the Democratic Senators would be as brief as possible in discussing matters of pub lic necessity, but if the Republican Sen ators insisted on the elections bill, a merely partisan measure, not indorsed by half of their own party, i*v, Democratic Senators would tliseuss it in all its ramifi cations. 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, and of the country, a humiliating con fession that they are no longer capable of holding their e>wn elections." He reacl from a St. Louis paper a letter addressed to Edmunds by a former Republican con stituent, now living in Texas, protesting against the elections bill. Edmunds said he never received such a letter, and believed it a fabrication to pro mote tbe operations of resistance to the elections bill. Gray spoke in opposition to the pro posed rule and against the elections bill. He mentioned a number of Republican newspapers which were opposed to the bill, and said he believeel public opinion in the West, without regard to party, was against it. He mentioned as some of the Western Republican papers that opposed the election bill the Omaha Dee, Minne apolis Journal, St. Paul Pioneer Press, St. Louis Globe-Democrat and Denver Re publican. Stewart then took the floor, and a re cess was taken until to-morrow. IN THE HOUSE. Washington, Jan. 23.—1n the House Breekenridge of Arkansas caused the usual delay this morning in the approval of the journal, but it was finally accom plished. 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 tee to report. Quite a lengthy debate took place on points of order, etc.. in the course of which Morrill said the committee had unanimously decided that the resolution had been improperly referred to it, and within one hour the resolution* was re turnee! to the Speaker's desk. Grosvenor of Ohio and Henderson, Smith and Cannon of Illinois spoke briefly, defending the Commissioner of Pensions. The matter was finally settled amicably by Morrill obtaining the original resolu tion from tho files ofthe House, reporting it from his committee and having it re ferred to the Committee on Rules. The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the naval appropriation bill, but without making any progress rose, and the House adjourned. Justifiable Homicide.

Holmes and tho Los Angeles Com- I pany Sued for Heavy Damages. Special to the Record-Union. Chicago, Jan. 23.—The hiuts at startl ing revelations in the disastrous invest ments by C. B. Holmes in the Pacific Railway Company of Los Angeles, Cat, merged into something tangible this even ing, when attorney Mayer filed six suits in assumpsit, with Charles Whitacre and Robert Law as plaintiffs against Holmes and the Pacific Company for damages aggregating $350,000. "These suits," said Mayer, "are only the beginning. After various conferences by the parties who invested in the Pacific Company, it -was decided this afternoon to bring a suit to recover. Whitacre, representing a number of banks, loaned money to Holmes and tho Pacific Com pany to carry on the Los Angeles enter prise. For these loans Holmes gave notes secured by what purported to be first mortgage bonds of the Pacific Company, but which we claim have proved almost valueless. "Robert Law's connection with the deal is the same as that of the banks. Ho took these bonds as security for loans to Holmes and the company, aggregating ?150,000." Attorney Mayer asserts that the ap pointment of Bogue to the receivership was simply a ruse to enable Holmes and his friends to get possession. BURNS' ANNIVERSARY.
