ELAINE'S SUDDEN ATTACK.
It Ktoi8 I'urtlier Irnt-eediiicn in the Mat
tel Ai-bitrittitm Talk.
Washington, Jan. 20 When Stcrctnry
Blaine went to the cabinet meeting yester
day morning he evidently did not expect
the attack which forced him to le remov
ed to his residence, so he dismissed his car
riage on arrivinji at the White House,
telling the. driver not to return until the
usual time for the adjournment of the
ineetins. The cabinet assembled at 11:"'J
and began a discussion of the Chilian
situation, Secretary Blaine taking part in
it. After the session had lasted nbout
twenty minutes Blaine suddenly said that
he felt ill and would be compelled to re
tire. That Correspond enre Delayed.
The illness of Secretary Blaine will re
sult in delaying the transmission of the
Chilian correspondence to congress, proba
bly until nest week. When he left the White
House the cabinet was discussing the mes
sage of the president to accompany the cor
respondence, as the president desires, of
course, that what he has to sar bis rec
ommenilntioris. etc. shall have the con
currence and approvsi of the members of
I he cabinet. But no cuiicliisiou bad liven
reached vhn lilaiue was compelled to
h ave, and e.s he was i 1,.- of'icial most jj.
terestcd in the mutter I he furl her discus
ion was without result. The next meet
ing ill uot occur uni il F:-ii!a , and as the
conclusion of the mrmkrs, whatever it
is, will have to have to be put in shape
a r;er adjournment the message i it not be
le u!y for transmission iM-fore Sat unlay.

The rumors that the delay in M-ntiiiiK in
t he iccsv-aie and currisp i.-idi iit,; w?is tine
tij the expeetiil i tier of arbitration by a
frit tally power, or the ie eijit of advices
that a more friend' spirit prevails in
Chilian .ifficial circles, arc untrue. Neither
of these occurred. An official of the state
department, referring to the report oil offer
of arbitration by a 1 1 ietnlly t bird power,
said yesterday: ' A third power does not
olTef lo arbitrate. The oiler is to mediate,
and its f.'oi:d oilices ion;, lead ton settle
ment under any one of three ilili'erent

Vll.l.t-'.sToN. Neb.. Jan. 1. A plucky
girl w ith a revolver did what a sheriff arid
his deputies could not accomplish at the
jail here several nichts ago. 'J'hc story has
bei u kept very quiet, but t hrouuli t he ad
miration of die of ihe deputies for the
fiirl's bir.wry the matter has leaked out.
In the jail is a man who was caught red
hatubd murderinu a traveler for money,
and the people decided that they could not
w;tit until the l.iw had run its" course and
determined to take the matter in their
own hands .-mil lynch the fellow. The
sheriff received warning of the intended
lytii hinu and collected four deputies and
announced his determination to guard the
jail at all hazards.
Weakened at the Test.
At 12 o'clock at night a summons came
forhira to open the doors and give up the
prisoner or the jail would lie burned down.
As the structure is wooden this would
have been an easy matter, and the sheriff
decided that he had better succumb to the
force than endanger the lives of the other
inmates. He accordingly made the an
nouncement to his deputies and sent one
to inform the leader of the mob that be
could have the prisoner. Durum the
parley the sheriff and r.'l hi deputies went
outside of th- jail, when suddenly the door
was slammed and bolted.
Promised Thesii Some Cold JLentl.
A gil 1 alKiut IU years old appeared at the
lipj-cr windows and told the astonished
crowd that they could not have the man.
She was Susan Cordcr. the daughter of
the sheriff. She said that she w.-m not
afraid of tlie mob, and would shoot down
the tirst man w ho attempted to approach
the place to set it on fire. She would not
let her father back into the house, and
told them that they could not accomplish
anything by remaining. The mob talked
together a little and then cheered the
plucky girl and left, telling her that they
would uot harm the murderer a he had
euch a brave defender.
