WASHINGTON , May 20. General Sheridan's
condition Is extremely critical to-night and
Ills death nt any moment would not be unex
pected. Ho had a recurrence of the heart
trouble about fi o'clock this afternoon , no
companlcd by n serious sinking spell which
gave great alarm to his physicians , who Im
mediately took prompt and powerful mcas-
ures to rally him. These remedies lmv only
( given partial relief , and at 10:30 : to-night
the four physicians who have hecn In attendance -
anco arc at hi * ldo closely and anxiously
watching every symptom. The action of the
heart Is still very fohlo nnd responds imper
fectly to the remedies administered to him.
The attack came almost without premoni
tion , a slight feollng of fnlntness bolng the
only thing which warned the physicians tiiat
the crisis might bo at hand.
Up to about ten minutes to n the general
$ ad been doing very well , and the family
were lu cheerful spirits nt the strength nnd
interests In passing events shown by the sick
man. No symptoms of the rccovercnce of the
failure of the valves of the heart to properly
' ; close had appeared , and as the attack of the
day previous had occurred In the morning , It
wasi hoped that ho would quickly rally and
become better able to meet any future
As soon as it became evident , however ,
that the valvular failure of the heart had
again set In , they saw that their cherished
hopes sf a successful day would not bo real
ized. Everything possible was dnno for the
patient , but with only imporlcct success.
Digitalis and whiskey were administered ,
nnd linally n blister was put over the heart.
These applications stimulated the heart to
the Increased notion , thouch not to the ex
tent desired. The general's return to nearly
the normal condition In which he
had been since his illness , W.IH slower
than from any of the previous attacks and
the doctor said of the attack , "It was pretty
BOvero. " At 8 o'clock ho hud recovered
eomowhat from his attack and was getting on
comparatively comfortably. Ho wns still tha
object of earnest solicitude , however , and
the doctors did not leave his side.
Mrs. Sheridan also remained constantly near.
The attack was unaccompanied by pain and
lie was conscious nnd thoroughly aware of
the gravity of the sltuvtion. The following
bulletin was issued at 10 p. m.
General Sheridan passed a comfortable
day , took plenty of nourishment , spoke cheer-
Jullv and hopefully , and generally did well
until ton minutes before 5 o'clock thin
morning , when the action of the heart
"became very feeble , from which condition it
lias reacted Imperfectly. At this time he Is
.suffering . neither pain nor distress. Ho thor
oughly understands , as lie and all his family
uave done from the beginning , the gravity o'f
the situation , but Is now ana has been quitn
tranquil , undismayed and hopeful for the

to THU Br.is.J-Tho Buddcn death of W. H ,
Sallo agent of the Pacific Express company nt
this plucois still the subject of con versation all
over the city. The young man was well con
nected , having Influential friends in the man.
ngemcnt of the company for which he
Worked , besides being n brother of the ngcnt
of the same corporation at Beatrice , in this
state. These facts alone would warrant the
concentration of considerable thought upon
the circumstances attending the young innn'p '
dnath did not the seeming appreciation
which , it Is known , ho cherished for a mar
ried woman of this city lend nn nlr of sus
picion to the occurrence.
Sullo was twenty-six years of ago and had
hold his position about sixteen months. He
had previously acted as mcsseiiBcrfor thoPa-
clflc , running between Omaha and Chey
enne , a position which ho retained for a
coupio of years.
Naturally , Sallo is said to have been of a
quiet , easy and retiring disposition , mid this
peculiarity bun distinguished him both In
his business and social relations since his
advent to this city. Ho seldom associated
with these whom ho might have readily
selected as companions , nnd sooined disposed
to keep his own company nnd counsel. Ho
walked the streets like u man with n preoccupied -
occupied mind , scarcely deigning to notice
anybody nnd only recognizing parties when
Bulutcel by them on the street and in hia
place of business. When returning these
solutions it would bo us if ho had been
suddenly roused from a study , on which his
Whole mind was engrossed. As n consequence
quence , Sallo made few acquaintances , nnd
these who through business relations nnd
accidental meetings grow to know him , both
by name nnd occupation , came to the
conclusion that ho was certainly a mysterious
creature. Some of these , bolder than others ,
and with a feeling of good fellowship , at In
tervals , endeavored to Induce him to abandon
his habits of seclusion and reticence and oven
to ascertain what , if anything , preyed upon
his mind which they could aid hi removing- .
But all these kindly otllcos wore declined and
resulted to no warming up of any of his ac
quaintances on the part of the young man.
Though In a comparatively milder form ,
the peculiarity was noted almost at the time
of his appearance in this city , of recent
months it has become moro pronounced. It
attracted general attention among all who
know , and oven people who met him. In the
ordinary course of every day life. It was
particularly noted by J. Phil Manz , the lead
ing barber of this place , who endeavored in a
most persistent manner to fathom the cause of
the young man's gloom. But the attempt
was not n success. At ono time Mr.
Manz thought Sallo had said that ho wished
bo was with his mother , 03 If absence from
her had caused him to griovo. But , so far as
could bo ascertained , there was no reason
why his presence was required at homo.
Then it was assorted that Sallo had been
pushed to keep up his payments upon prop
erty in Omaha which ho had contracted to
buy. The land in question is supposed to bo
six lots in Clifton place , the cost of which
was § 750 apiece. Contracts lor such prop
erty was found among his effects which call
for semi-annual payments. A letter was
also found from his father in Chillicotho ,
Mo. , offering to advance him § 1.000 , as if to
aid him in his payments , but the offer was
coupled with the announcement that
it , would rather tighten the lender.
This letter , however , bore date of
November of last year , but there
was nothing among his correspondence to
show that ho had recently been annoyed by
a fear of his inability to make his payments.
The moro people have considered these pe-
culiaritiostbo more of them they have noticed ,
until finally , they reached the conclusion that
Sallo had begun to drink. This inference
was drawn from the fact that ho had been
seen in a shaky condition on ono or two occa
sions , though these who knew him best , felt
that Sallo had not resorted to the bowl. Bo
that as it may , his actions for the two weeks
preceding his death were both unusual and
inexplicable. Ho roomed with n druggist ,
George F. Sellers , who testified that Sallo
last week acted as if ho were sick and refused
to go to bed , contenting himself with a
lounge in the room. Shortly before this he
had made a purchase of morphine , which ,
however , hoconccaled from his room rnato.tho
drughaving [ been obtained from another phar
macist. Whether the sickness referred to was
occasioned by the morphine , or whether ho
had ut all taken the drug nns not been dis
closed. Nevertheless , on Wednesday night
last he slept at the Huwo house , and slept so
soundly that it was -1 o'clock in the after
noon of Thursday when ho awoke. His fail
ure to appear nt the ofllco on Thursday
morning , nnd the Inability of his friends to
find him led to n telegram being sent to the
headquarters of the Pacific express company
in Omaha , and in consequence E. W. Bennett
was sent horn to look into matters. The
accounts wore ohcckod up and every cent re
ceived was accounted for , oven a collection
which ho had mudo late Wednesday evening : ,
The fact of Snllc's not appearing on Thurs
day reached the editor of the Herald , of this
city , and accordingly , yesterday morning , a
paragraph appeared noting his mysterious
disappearance. Sallo , however , wns scon
Thursday night. Ho supped at the Kuwc ,
and appeared at the Now York house about
10 o'clock , when ho registered. Ho left
the hotel , was seen there again a short time
later , going out nnd returning by the ladles'
entrance , between 12 and 1 o'clock in the
morning , when ho was escorted to his room.
Next morning ho was found dead. Before
registering at the Now York ho had bought
his morphine , the quantity being twenty
grains , though there was no means of deter
mining how largo a dose ho had taken ,
When ho retired , Sallo was not d runic. Ho
had not boon on a drunk , and the tlieofy that
ho hod taken the drug to overcome the effects
of excessive liquid Ir.unlgoneo Is therefore
untenable , No 'nor [ s there sufllclont rcnz n
to believe that ho was addicted to ibo mor-
pll.iie habit , because there is no proof that
ho had made moro than two purchases of the
drug , and if ho hadn't Intended to muku n
violent disposition of himself ho would have
carefully ascertained from the druggist how
largo a close ho might take without Jeopardiz
ing his life. The fact that ho purchased his
morphine from another than his room-
imito showed that bo felt the latter
would not soil it to him and would perhaps
have taken steps to prevent tno consumma
tion of his act , The leaving , too , of the key
of the oftlce and the combination of the sateen
on the counter on the night of his disappear
ance , evidences n disposition to In no way
hamper his employes by his hasty disappear
That something conduced to the despond
ency of Sallo is generally admitted. His
spiritless conduct was too pronounced to bo
accounted for on natural grounds , nmtumong
these who knew him best are many who explain -
plain it ou the ground of his great attach
ment for n man led lady In this city. Thia
attachment has existed for more than a year.
It was most pronounced , nnd no attempt was
made to oonccnl it. Both ho and Fhuwero
scan in company for hours at a time , at her
place of business , a restaurant
ut which Sullo boarded. It ia
said that they went out riding
and attended concerts together. It is also
known that when Sallo was not actively en
gaged in bib ofllco , bo could bo found ut the
restaurant , where bo seemed to enjoy perfect
contentment. On the ilrst of this month the
boarders were dismissed to unable the Ice
cream biinmeis to bo recommenced for the
season , Shu * that time Suite's despondency
has bcei : moot pionounccd He took hid
meals nt the line house , a fo\v feet from the
restaurant , while his room was on the same
slrt-ot with tbt > latter and but two lots away.
Sallc's devotion was public property. It was
commented UJMJH everywhoio , and friends
of Ins twitted him about it ami udvisod him
to dhcontinuii it. One of those friends ,
noting thin devotion , sail ] to Sallo ; "Then ,

It developed In the caucus of the repub
lican members of the house this afternoon
that It is not at all certain that there will bo
n republican substitute offered to the Mills
bill In the lower branch of congress. On the
contrary the speeches Indicated that the sub
stitute business will bo left entirely to the
somite. The Ilrst struggle will bo over the
free wool section. Free wool will bo reached
within n wcok after the bill Is taken up , and
should It bo stricken out will take all the Ufa
from the measure and may have the effect of
its friends pormltting every conceivable
amendment us many say will bo done and
then the bill may receive the support of
many republicans and pass. As the bill now
stands It would likely bo defeated by a ma
jority of from two to four. After the dls-
cusslon under the flvo-inlnuto rule has pro
gressed a week or two the republicans will
prepare their bill If they think It advisable.
The work under the uvo-tniuuta rule will

A PI.AO OF TOUCH AT THB WIItTn HOUSE.
There has been considerable surprise ex
pressed by prominent democratic politicians
outside of Now York at the strange change
of front on the part of the administration
towards the Hill democracy in that state.
The selection of Murray , a warm personal
friend of Governor Hill and ono of his most
ardent henchmen , as chairman of the Now
York state committee , Is unaccountable to
many , especially as at the convention to
choose delegates to Chicago the administra
tion machine was supreme and Governor
Hill's ' friends were loft in the lurch. A
democratic politician of national reputation ,
and who is close to the Bide of the president ,
said to-day , in speaking of the matter , that a
careful survey of the state of Now York ,
after Governor Hill's veto of the high license
bill had convinced Colonel Lauiont and the
president that the sooner they gave up the
idea of decapitating David the better it
would bo for the administration. The ontlra
foreign elements have rallied so strongly
around Governor Hill that any attempt to
leave him out ot consideration as a controll
ing element in Now York politics would bo
impossible. As a result a truce has boon
called , and the olive branchof peace has
boon extended to Governor Hill and ho will

favored the acceptance of the proposition ,
but in the end they were Induced to Join in
making the action of the caucus upon the
subject unanimous. It was disclosed during
the debut o that the general sentiment of Urn
