LIKE A CRAWFISH
Relating- -the Urgent Appoals ol
Hia Friends to Bocomo a
Mr. Blaine is to B j Dragged Back ward Into
the Chicago Convention ami Nom
inated by Acclamation.
All that His Supporters Demand of Him
Is that He Will Hold His
Washington-, April :.' .Mr. Blaine con
tinues to riinain a passive observer ol
the political situation. He said recently
to a friend: "If there Is any man who
has in his possession to-day a letter from
me upon the present Presidential situa
tion, I will buy It of him at the rate ol
810,000 a word." The fact that Mr.
Blaine answers no letters upon the sub
ject of politics has ouly emphasized the
neutrality of his position. One of Blaine's
warm personal friends, a man of wealth
and great political activity, who has
worked very hard for Blaine In the
last two National Conventions, talked
very freely to-day to your correspondent
about the situation so far as Blaine Is
concerned. He was first asked:
'Is Blaine a candidate?"
"No," be answered, "not if there is
any truth in men. I have knowu Blaine
for twenty years; I have fought aud
worked for him In a way that eutitled me
to ti intimacy and confidence. He tells
me he is not a candidate, and he tells tut
"But why are Blaine's friends working
so hard for him."
'Well, it means simply this: Blaine is
behi2 carried into the convention back
wards. We mean to nominate him
whether he will or not. I belit-ve he will
be nominated upon the first ballot by ac
clamation." That is a pretty strong statement."
"Perhaps it is, but there is a general
opinion thruughout the country that
Blaine has been cheated out of the nomi
nation twice by the machine element of
the Republican party. Now the machine
is broken and out of order. The people
are anxious to give Blaine the nomination
as a matur of common justice. The on
ly trouble with Blaine is the fa-t that he
has brains. Their possession is danger
ous. The politicians In the ma-s have
none and hate the man that has. It is his
mental superiority that has given rise to
the rubbishy talk of his dangerous bril
liancy, as if the ouly safe kind of a Presi
dent is some thlck-hea led old turvey-drop
without two ideas in his head. I think
you will find that Blaine would be dan
gerous in the White House only for poli
ticians. I know of no less controllable
man than he asainst
HIS OWN KLXKD JCIKSMEXT.
If he were President he would be Presi
dent without the assistance of any one."
'Does not Mr. Blaine take any inter
est in the annrrn'-i" struggle at Chi-
"Ves, and no. He is In the position of
a cool, collected observer. He has none
of the heart-burnings for the ambitions of
the past, while the sense of power that
comes to him in the uprising of hNfriends
is not unpleasant. But his mind is steeped
in philosophical calm. He has made
no combinations with any one and will
"How much has Blaine been moved by
the recent talk of Grant?"
Oh, not at all. He understands it
fully. It is a personal matter strictly be
tween Blaine aud Gratit. It does not no
bevond Grant. Blaine and Logan are
lrb-ndly. The friends of Blaiue would be
satisfied with John Logan if we can't get
what we expect. I.og.-iu is a good Soldier,
a veteran in public affairs and a sanare
man. He knows men, and if he were
President would make no mistake Id
those he would have about him."
"Rave you seen the recent interview in
the New York H'orOl in which the Kev. L.
A. Lambert, a Catholic pastor at Water
loo, repeats the statement that Blaine Ls
" ih, that story comes up at every cam-
paign. lou will never et Mr. Blaine to
deny it. Blaine's mother was a Catholic.
Blaine is Protestant and so Is his wife.
But you will never hear him make any
answer to the story. He has no'intention,
by the most indirect way, of casting any
reflection upon his mother's relision.
The matter Is of no more consequence
than the color of a man's hair, and has
no business to be dragged jto politics."

"We do not consider him formidable.
He might have been nominated by

support of one of the most serious ob
stacles at pn-sent. In his path. But he

How can the man expect a support that

Governor Hoadly on the Situation.
CoiXMiiL's, O., April 2. Governor
Hoadly, upon being Interviewed concern
ing the Cincinnati riot this morning, said
he believed the Fourth Regiment, from
Dayton, was in Cincinnati In time to pre
vent tho burning of tho Court-house. If
Colonel Mott, with his command In good
control, had taken tho Canal bridge and
held it he could have cleared Main street
of the rioters, and the police and soldiers
of the First Regiment could have held tho
other streets around the Court-house and
jail. He thinks the mob was danger
ous and imprai ticiibh; as to final
action, but believed a more vigorous
administration of the criminal law would
be the Immediate result of tho uprising.
He feared, however, a subsequent reac
tion of indifference. It was very unfor
tunate for its effect upon public senti
ment that the particular Hamilton County
murderers who would first feel the in
creased severity in the administration ol
the criminal law, were poor men, without
iniliieiitlal friends. It would have a much
more reassuring effect on public sentiment
if one or two of them were wealthy, and
well connected. He said tho root of the
diilleulty lay In the unwillingness ol
reputable citizens to respond to calls of
public duty. He would remedy the
jury evil by abolishing all excuses and
compelling citizens to serve.
One Day's Records of Suicides In the
Chicago, III., April a. A local paper
has the following list of suicides all un
der a single heading. This city is bo
healthy that the only way to get out of it
is to move away or commit suicide, and
of course all true Chlcagoans prefer the
latter route :
tixctche ok aconite.
James I). Ledsworth, a man forty-eight
years old, and a printer by occupation,
committed suicide by taking tincture of
aconite, at his house at No. 434 Seminary
avenue, in Lake View, dying yesterday
morning at about three o'clock. Leds
worth was at one time the possessor of a
good deal of property, and the loss of
that and the death of a favorite son, about
four years ago, caused him to become a
changed man. Sunday evening he objected
to a young man remaining in the house
with his children and caused considera
ble disturbance. Aconite had been in the
house for some time, having been used
for a sick child, and Ledsworth announc
ed his intention of taking it, and did so In
the presence of his son aud daughter, w ho
endeavored to prevent him, but could
not. He swallowed the contents of a
small vial, and In a few hours was dead.
Ledsworth had been married nineteen
years, aud leaves four children. An in
quest was held by Deputy Coroner Shan
ahan, when the facts above given were
testified to by Mrs. Ledsworth and Dr.
Newell, and a verdict of suicide was re
turned by the jury.
WASH-LINE and whisky.
This Is the way a coroner's jury put it
In the case of Gustav Bahls, who hanged
himself: "That he came to his death at
No. 15'. West Erie street from strangula
tion caused by tying a wash-line about bis
neck and hanging himself, he having been
at the time suffering .from delirium tre
mens, caused by excessive drink. Peter
doudolf, driver of a beer wagon, testified
that he discovered deceased hanging
from a knob on the Ice-box In a saloon
kept by liahls at the place above men
tioned,"and cut him down. The wife of
liahls testified that be had been drinking
constantly since the 14th ult., and be
coming delirious, bad killed hbjnself while
in that condition. He had been married
over nine years, and leaves two children.
WHISKY AND WATEK.
A verdict of suicide by drowning was
returned bv a Coroner's Jury In the case
of Otto Philo, a German bar-tender,
whose strange freaks were related by
Louis Sewing, steward of the County
Democratic Club. The latter said he had
trnou-n I'nilo for s-o jcais, urnl ne Uad
been latterly employed by Charles Koester
at No. 49 South Clark street. He was
twentv-six years old. Sewing knew oi
his receiving some money from Germany
about three or four months ago, and he
br-aan to drink to excess, lie talked of
having a hisrh old time generally, and then
destroying himself. After spending all
his money he pawned his clothing and
lewelrv. On January 13 he went to Mr
IK-rtz to borrow a pistol lor trie purpose
of shooting himself, but Hertz would not
let him have it. He said it made no dif
ference, as he was determined to kill
himseH anywav. He took off his under
coat, suspenders and necktie and walked
to the lake at the foot of Harrison street
and deliberately jumped In and drowned.
Jus body was lound attnelootol I wenty
seventh street on Saturday last.
The inquest held on the body of the un
known man found on Sunday morning at
the foot of Delaware place, in the lake,
resulted In a verdict of death by drown
ing, but whether with suicidal inteut or
not the jury were unable to determine.
HEMP AND WHISKY.
Another suicide occurred at 5:30 a. m.
yesterday. Deitrich Netman, a German,
also about sixty-three years of age, who
boards at 31)7 South Canal street, hanged
himself in his room with a rope. Thomas
Fraizer, a room-mate, discovered the sus
pended body. The cause of the act was
supposed to be, as in the other suicide,
