The Gallant .Admiral Dies at Wash ington City Yesterday A Brief Biography, 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. second dispatch. 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. UNION PACIFIC CHANGES.

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 position." 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 Co-operate. ' 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. To be Court Martiaied. St. Louis, Feb. 14.

Among those who called were Cyrus W. Field and Mrs. IT. S. Grant.

From Secretary Barrett it was learned that General Sherman remained unconscious to the last, dying with no visible pain. The General passed away without speaking any.
