GENERAL (.'RANTS CONDITION.
1 2ieo Yobk, March 3L 1 a. m. At
'll:15-SenatorJ. B. Chaffee left the
al had just been put to bed, nnd that
as compared to his condition twenty
four hours ago the general was better.
When asked if the physicians con
sidered the patient out -ol danger,
Chaffee replied he could not say that
such was the case, but that the pres
ent condition was more favorable.
At 11 io 3 Dr Douglas and Colonel
Grant left the house for the night, it
being considered necessary for only
Dr. bhrady to remain. Dr. Douglas
said the general had just retired nnd
was very comfortable. Little mor
phine had been given to induce sleep.
The general has been improviug all
day np to the present and the better
ment had continued all evening. He
had been chatty and bright, convers
ing with the family and physicians.
His pulse and temperature are very
nearly normal. He had slept five
hours within twenty-four.
At midnight the vestibule doors
were locked and within the next hour
all lights were extinguished, except
one in the library and one on the top
2:15 a. ir. At 1,45 an effort was
made to get a bulletin concerning the
condition of General Grant but re
porters were unable to gain admission
to the house, and no one inside would
come out As the house remained
dark as stated in an earlier dispatch,
it is not thought a change has taken
place in tho condition of the gen
eaal. 4 a. m. An associated press report
er has just seen Dr. Shrady, in charge
of General Grant to-night, and
learned the following facts: At mid
night Dr. Shrady made applications
to Gen. Grant's throat, and nn ano
dyne was administered to Dr. Doug
las, who then left for his home, and
Dr. Shrady remained. Soon after
midnight Gen, Grant slept quietly in
his bed from that time until 1:90 when
he arose and sat in his easy chair,
and there slept peacefully for a time.
His breathing wag easy and he did
not complain of any disagreeable feel
ing in his throat. At this hour (4 a
il) all is quiet about General Grant's
house, a solitary gleam of light being
seen in the library. No one ha3 en
tered since Dr. Douglas left the
New Yobk, March 31. The Trib
une says General Grant has expressed
himself as being entirely in his phy
sicians' hands, and said he would do
whatever was suggested by them.
Nothing whatever is kept from him
in regard to his condition, and he was
informed qt its seriousness and prob
able termination. He received the
statemontsjhat there was an indica
tion of a speedy end wfthgnt aghauge
ofe xpressiou, but did not sax nu7
thing about his feelings. He had
known for some time that the disease
was sure to kill, and has been ready
at any time to go.
Dr. Douglas said: "The general
has no appetite, but he eats when
food is brought to him. Tho feature
of to-day is his great weakness. He
is growing weaker and weaker. I do
not know whether he fears a recur
rence of the spasms in the throat or
not He has not said anything about
it, Th'a was one of the change inci
dent to tho progress of the disease."
Minister Bomero said to-night:
"As soon as the disease reaches an
artery it will create hemorrhage, and
as he is so weak that he cannot ex
pectorate blood out it will choke him
to death. He cannot endure another
attack like Saturday night The
family fear the worst and keep near
his bedside, although as much ont of
sight as possible. There is great
swelling on the side of liis face.
An Outrage at Ap!nwall.
Panama (via Galveston), March 30.
Star and Herald bulletins pub
lished to-day say the steamer Colon
was seized to-day at Aspinwail by
revolutionists, who demanded the do
livery of shipments of arms on board
for tho revolution. The agents re
fused to deliver. Connor, local super
intendent of tho Pacific Mail Com
pany, wiis first arrested, and later the
captain apd thepuraer of the steamer
were placed under arrest on board.
Subsequently Captain Dowell of the
Pacific Mail Company, Mr. "Wright,
United States consul, and . the lieu
tenant of the American man-cf-war
Galena, were arrested and marched
off to thequartel, They were released
at 0 o'clock, on condition that the
arms should bo delivered, and deliv
ery is now going on. American and
England war ships did nothing to
protect foreign interests, because the
revolutionary ohief declared he would
resist their interference by force.
Americans are indignant at the insults
to their nag and outrage to their per
sons and property. Troops 'go from
here to-night to attack the revolu
tionists, who, however, are in strong
force, and with the arms from the
G'ofo;! will probably bo able to con
trol events in their own way aud to
their own interests.

The "Willapa river heads iu Lewis
coanty, witbm a few miles of Che
halis river Its course is generally
westerly, although very crooked. Its
entire length i about seventy-five
miles. There ara fine bottom lands
the entire length, varying from one
half to two miles in width, covered
generally with timber and brush, al
though there are several large and fine
praines. Tho soil is of great depth
aud fertility, producing very larg
crops of cereals and root3 corn not
doing well on account of cool nights.
The country slopes gradually away
from each side of tho river to high
ridges, all covered with heavy growths
of fir, spruco and cedar of an extra
qnality There are large tracts of
government and railroad laud yet to
be had. There are a great many
small streams tributary to the "Willa
pa. The largest, South fork, has the
same general characteristics, as in
fact do all the smaller streams, as the
main river. The river is at present
navigable for the bay steamers for
about twenty miles, but with a small
amount of work could bo made navi
gable for several mile3 further. Ves
sels of the deepest draught go as far
as boutu Bend twelve miles from
the mouth, the most important point
It consists of a large saw mill with a
capacity of G0.000 feet daily. There
is a good school and about 200
inhabitants. Nino miles further
east is "Willapa city, formerly called
Woodard's Landing. It is practic
ally at the head of navigation. It
consists of two stores, warehouse,
two hotels and saloons, blacksmith
shop, school, and about 100 inhabit
ants. It is a growing- place, and is
bound to be a good town in tho near
future, as it is at tho outlet of the
river. There are several large set
tlements at different points for about
50 miles, but no business centers.
Every settlement has a school. Log-
giug is the principal industry, al
though farming is carried on to a
larger extent than at any other point
in the county. The camps and mill
make a fine market for all tho prod
ucts raised in tho valley, "When the
country is more thickly settled aud
some of the smaller streams opened
up there will be more of an iucontivo
and more help to open up tho ooin
municatious to different portions of
tno valley, and to other streams.
which are naturally tributary to the

ent is to get a market for small grains.
Transportation is so high that it can
not be raised with profit There is
a line opening here for a grist mill,
as there is none in the county. All
flour used is brought from Califor
nia and Oregon. There is also a lino
location for a shingle mill, as the
spruce and cedar here are of an extra
quality and there is a large local
market to be supplied. - Pact he
