A Consultation in His Room After Midnight No Hope Held Out Although the Patient Sleeping. LONDON. a. m.-i-A. copiniHalion of physicians in Former Governor Pingree's room at mid-night evidenced the aoutcnesfi of his ill- ness. Bvory effort has been extend- ed to check the exhaustion from which he Is suffering and while the physicians -declare that Mr. Plngrcr has fairly held his own to-day they are unable to say that lie is anywise improved. The question now is- whether his natural physical strength will enable him to withstand the ex- hausting strain of the last few days. The patient was sleeping at one o'clock. A further consultation will be hold at nine o'clock this morning. That Mr. Pingree's condition is critical cannot be denied; and his physicians do not disguise their ap- prehension, though they are still hope- ful of a favorable result. TO SAVE THEIR LAND.
