Washington, Fob. 12. Although tho
statement is mailo that llanna passed
a fair night, his condition Is admitted
to bo serlou3, and, now believed to bo
in a crisis. '
At 10 o'alook this morning his phy
sicians made public the follewing:
llanna poassd a co'mfortablo night,
but his tevor Is higher 104. Ills pulso
is mora rapid, 112, respiration 28, ir

cians were interviewed afterwards,
and said tho senator was conscious, (
and thero was nothing alarming. They I
bellevo ths turning point of his III- f
nesa Is within 48 hours. If tho fovor1
breaks beforo Sunday tho chances of
recovery are much better, but if tho
high temperature contlnuos beyond
Sunday It Is very unlikely, in his de
bilitated condition, that bo would be
ablo to Burvivo. They say ho is
greatly weakened; can't speak abovoj

aroused front apathy only by baths,

Although hopo has not boon entire

generally that ho won't recover. It is
generally admitted today to bo typhoid
fovor in tho most severe form, and
death might occur at any time. Sallno

Conflicting War News.
London. Fob. 12. Advices from
Shanghni says tho bombardment of
Port Arthur is still In progress. Thoro
Is no word aB to tho outcome, which
is awaited with anxiety. A great mass
of conflicting reports of lossos to both
sides is constantly rccclvod, somo of
which aro palpably absurd. Lack of
definite Information Is particularly
noticeable This Is accounted for by
seyoral who assert that fho Japancso
vossels are, In all probability, spread
along tho coast of Corea, coloring tho
movemonts of troops throughout tho
Corenn ponlnsula, and gathering to
ward tho north, whoro-.lhoflrBt. stiff
encounter with tho Russians is ex
pected. Thoro is always a possibility,
too, that, owing to tho difficulty of
transmitting nows, information from
tho opposing flotillas has boon held
up. Shanghai Is moBt prolific in re
ports, which aro generally foundation
loss. Ono report, chrllor than tho
abovo, says Port Arthur has fallen be
fore tho Japancso onslaught. It gnvo
alleged details, stating that a number
of Russian cruisers and battleships
wore domollBhcd, and tho reraalndor
put to flight Tho report Is gcnorally
dlscroditod among tho well-informed,
ns tt seems hardly possible that Port
Arthur can bo ovorcomo in such a.
short time. A later report i that r
steady bombardment soomB moro
probable. Anothor report, emanatlng:
from Tien Tsln, says Hakodato, tho
most northorly of tho Japanoso islands ,
was shelled by tho Russian ftoot Tha
is alBO dlsbolloved, as it 1b known that -a
strong Japanese fleet is posted near..-
