The Interview In which Mr. lllalne author
ized Ini W ori d reporter to make tho forego
ing statement public took dace last night at
the Brunswick Hotel In Boston. The ex
Secretary and Mrs. nialne were together, and
both remained perfectly Inpasslre whon told
by the reporter tUat a despatch from
Washington bad bocn published In the
Boston papers yesterday, charging Mr.
lllalne with having purchased from Marie

(O'i.ouo, ot which 111), 000 had been con
trlbuied by Itlchard u. Kerens, ot Missouri
and tho balance by fire other Republicans,
who gave(lo,000 each.
Mr. lllalne read tho despatch and then

story to be wholly lalse. Mr. Blaine there
upon wrote the above statement for publica

MR. BLAINE DENIES AGAIN.
An Alleged Interview rtooardlnir tho
Cablnot Trouble Denounced.
ifrrriT to tnr rvFwiwa wnn i
Bostos, Juno 0 An alleged Interview
with Mr. Blaine appeared In a
Boston paper this morning, In which
tho ex-Secretary was quoted as a)Ing
among other things that tho public must
look to Mr. Harrison to find out what the
difficulty In tho Cabinet really was.
An Evenino Worid leporter asked Mr.
lllalne this morning It be had rcud tbe Inter
views. " I never rend disagreeable things about
myself," responded the man from Maine,
" and If you saw it in tho paper referred to It
w s undoubtedly disagreeable."
Theteporter gave a copy of tho article lo
Mr. Blaine. Letoro be read It Mr. Blaine
, said, "I have talked with no reporters ex.
cent Tng World reporter, to whom 1 gave
my letter last night. Any Interview other
than that Is false."
Mr. Blaine read the alleged Interview.
"It Is untrue from beginning to end," raid
he. "I have nover once talked with
any man from tbe Boston paper. The
article proves Us falsity. It says I
was dressed In a steel-gray bull, w hereas the
only suit I have worn since 1 left W asblngton
Is the black I have on now.
" I did not even see this man. Every word
stated in that Interview Is false. Thu
reporter lied. Just as did a reporter
at Washington recently, who published
something which ho claimed Mrs lllalne and
I said. I branded that Interview, as 1 brvnd
this one, as a deliberate lie and a forgery."
" Supposing the reporter had seen you and
asked tbe questions suggested, what would
vou have said?" asked tbe reporter.
"Well." addod Mr. Blaine with a smile,
" you will have to excuse me Irom
answering any Questions. I am a
hard man to be Interviewed, whon
I bare nothing to say, and Just at present I
have nothing to say. I probably shall remain
In Boston another day."
