The Gallant .Admiral Dies at Wash
ington City Yesterday A Brief
ASOIHKIt VETERAN GONE.'
Admiral lvld C. Porter Dies at Wsih-
t ingrton. .
Washington, Feb. 13. Admiral David
P. Porter died this morning. '
David Dixon : Porter was born in
Pennsylvania, June 8, 1814, his father
being the gallant Porter of Essex fame.
He served as a midshipman in the Mex
ican navy during the war between that
country and Spain, on" board the ship
Guerero which was sunk by the Spanish
frigate La Libertad in May 1827, after a
terrific encounter. : Two years after this
he entered the American navy as a mid
shipman, arid eighteen years later as
lieutenant took part in the Mexican war.
When the civil war broke out Porter
was sent to the relief of Fort Pickens,
Fla., in command of the Powhatan.
This duty accomplished he fitted out
a mortar flotilla for reductions of the
approaches of New Orleans. After the
fall of New Orleans the flotilla assisted
in the siege of Vicksburg and : he was
made rear admiral and placed in com
mand of the naval forces on the western
rivers above New Orleans. His ability
was now conspicuously exhibited and
wherever - there- was: water enough to
float a gunboat the old flag was carried.
He was transferred to the Atlantic and
captured Fort . Fisher in 1863. He was
appointed suDerintendent of the Naval
Academy and on the death of Farragut
succeeded tnat illustrious man as ad'
miral of the navy.
Washington, Feb. 13. The death was
very sudden. It occurred at his resi
dence here and was the result of fatty
degeneration of the heart with which he
had been afficted since - last Bummer.
His death was calm and peaceful. " The
nature of the admiral's' disease made it
dangerous for him to lie on his back, so
that he had been accustomed to rest sit
ting up.on a large sofa with his back and
head supported by: pillows.
Flags on the white house and other
public buildings are placed at half-mast.
The funeral will be marked with the
highest military honors and the inter
ment will be at the Arlington national
cemetery.; , v
A large number of people and officials
called at the house this1 morning and left
messages of sympathy for the family.
Telegrams - of condolence also received
from prominent people from all parts of
the country The time for the funeral
has not yet been fixed.

CIEVELANS'S LETTER. .
It Will Make him the Nominee and De-
. . feat Free Coinage.
Washington. Feb. 12. The letter of
Grover Cleveland published this morn
ing, has made him the next president, or
has prevented any other democrat from
being president, just as it has also ac
complished another thing, and that is,
prevented the passage of the free coin
age bill by the house of representatives
at this session. Eastern democrats who
favored it, do not want it now, and this
much talked of measure is, probably
dead. Nothing has caused bo much ex
citement in political circles for years, as
this celebrated letter. Free coinage
democrats are in the dumps, while those
who are more free traders than free coin
age men are willing to abandon the latter
for the former, and will stick to Cleve
land. The very boldness of the move in
the face of the silver sentiment among
the democrats in the house and senate
has made Cleveland a sort of hero, and
his daring to espouse the cause he be
lieves to be right is commended even by
those who have been touched bv silver
craze. There have been hundreds of
interviews with both republicans and
democrats on the subject today, and the
consensus of opinion on the situation is
about this :
"The democrats are mad-verv mad-
but they swear under their breath and
privately commend his courage, and ad
mit that he has played a trump card.
A very few think he has made, a great
mistake, Due tne majority think: the
West and South will not reject him,
simply because he does not agree with
them on free coinage. The republicans
generally believe Cleveland has made a
great nit lor nimself, and . that he will
comriel his Dartv to coma to him. Thev
are much pleased because the attitude of
the democrats in congress has made so
diametrically opposed to the position of
Cleveland that it almost splits the party,
They recognize that they are safe from
free coinage at this session, and the
democrats of the next house, with a
senate previously committed to free
coinage, will be in a very embarrassing
There is also another feature, and that
is that the business interests everywhere
will commend Cleveland's letter. It is
thought it will turn back the tide of free
coinage and inflation sentiment, chiefly
fostered in the democratic party, and
place the business of the country on a
firmer . foundation. Some' statesman
here profess to believe that the demand
for free coinage and inflation will have
so abated by the time of the next dem
ocratic convention that Cleveland can
be nominated on a platform that does
not mention silver. . The , letter caused
consternation among the men who have
been posing as leaders of the party.
There can be no doubt but the effect of
the letter has been a great . dampener
upon the inflationists. . There are a few
ultra free coinage men that claim the
letter will mean a stiffening np of the
third party movement and 4the election,
witn Cleveland as a democratic nominee,
will be thrown into the house of repre
sentatives, but this is mostly visionary.
Little else has beee discussed here today
and Cleveland's letter bids fair to be
come as famous and as great an issue as
his tariff reform message.
THE PORTAGE KOAD.
The State of 'Washington is Ready to
' Salem, Feb. 13. The Washington
legislature is in earnest in the matter of
joint action for the building of portage
railways at the Cascades and The Dalles.
The resolutions adopted by the Oregon
legislature were telegraphed to Olympia
last night. .. Early , this morning dis
patches were received announcing that
the Washington legislature had already
concurred in the resolution and appoint
ed a joint committee, who would be in
Portland tomorrow, ready to meet with
the Oregon committee, which consists of
Senators Watkins and Moore and Rep
resentatives McCoy, Miller and Henry.
These will ask for leave of absence and
go to Portland tomorrow. Although
near the close of the session of each leg
islature, it is hoped an agreement may
be quickly reached and a bill agreed up
on, which will afford the relief demand
ed bv the people in the eastern half of
each state. Representative Miller has a
plan to offset the constitutional objec
tion that Oregon cannot appropriate
money to spend in Washington, as it is
imperative that the road shall be built
on the Washington side, since the Ore
gon bank is occupied by the U. P. line.
Mr. Miller would have congress cede a
strip of territory on the . Washington
shore jointly to the two states, and over
which they may have concurrent juris
diction. This he thinks could be easily
done, and would remove all obstacle to
the joint construction of a portage rail
way by two states.
