White Plaixs, N. Y., 6oC 14. Mr.
Blaine passed yesterday quietly at Ophir
farm, resting after his trip from Maine.
Ee saw no callers daring the day and al
though a distinguished delegation came up
from New York in the afternoon, he did
not meet them until he came down stairs
for dinner at'7 o'clock in the evening. The
gentlemen whom Keid had invited to meet
Blaine were Jas. S. Clarkson, Cornelius X.
Bliss, Chairman Carter, of the Republican
national committee, and Secretary Mo
Comas. To a representative of the United
Press, Reid stated last evening that the
visit of . Blaine aad the meeting
with the directors of the Republican cam
paign had no political significance what
ever. It was a purely social affair, and not
a gathering for the holding of an important
conference as to the progress of the cam
paign. Blaine's Fntnre Movements.
Reid also said that Blaine was not In
duced to come on in order to give the man
agers of the campaign an opportunity to
make a personal and united appeal to him
to deliver one or more campaign speeches.
I have been expecting Mr. Blaine to visit
me for some time," said Reid, "and he has
not been able to come until now. He is on
his way to his Washington residence, and
while I would be most happy to have him
-with me for some time I am not certain
that he will remain longer than the end of
this week. Mrs. Blaine expects to arrive in
New York on Monday, and will go to the
home of her daughter, Mrs. Damrosch, for
a visit. Mr. Blaine may go there also for a
time, and he may then go on to Washing
ton and be may return here. His plans are
not yet settled.
Declines to Talk Politics.
"Now, about Mr. Blaine's health, he has
been unwell all summer and is now im
proving rapidly. The way in which he
stood the trip from Bar Harbor speaks
volumes. He is looking and feeling very
well today after his twenty-four hours in
the cars. He positively declines to sea
newspaper men and to talk politics." It is
the general opinion here, in spite of what
Keid says, that a strong effort will be made
to induce Blaine to appear at leant once at
Madison Square Garden and deliver one of
his magnetic speeches in behalf of the Re
publican ticket. The absence of Harrison
from the campaign, made necessary by the
illness of his wife, has. It is said, led mem-
bers of the national Republican committee
to decide that some strong climax is needed
to arouse enthusiasm in the ranks and call
out a full vote on election day.
'Wilt Blaine Make a Speech?
Whether the arguments of Clarkson.
Man ley, Bills and Reid, all of whom are
strong personal friends of the ex-secretary
of state, will Induce him to run the risk
attendant upon entering a political cam
paign in his present physical condition is
uncertain. The matter is evidently being
seriously considered, and the visit of James
G. Blaine to Whitelaw Reid may have a
marked effect upon the campaign.

Memorial hall by marching clubs, where

Albast, Oct. 14, By what would be f
called in a legislature a "strict party rote"
tj)e court of appeals yesterday decided that
-the apportionment law passed by the last J
legislature is constitutional and valid. The ,
main opinion upholding the law is writ- ,
ten by Judge Peckham. Justice Gray j
also writes an opinion upholding the law, I
and Karl, O'Brien and Maynard concur,
the decision in brief holds that the appor- i
tionment is fair and according to law. j
The Dissenting Opinion.
Judge Andrews wrote a dissenting opin
ion which was concurred in by Judge
Finch. The court is unanimous upon all
the questions involved except those dis
cussed in Judge Andrews' opinion. The
judges practically agree on all questions
touching the constitutionality of the appor
tionment law except on the -question of the
discretion used by the legislature in appor
tioning the remaining members of assem
bly among the counties having the frac
tional ratios. The five judges sustaining
the law are Democrats, and those holding
it invalid are Republicans. j

The New National President of the Ladles'
Aid Society, G. A. R.
Pittsburg, Oct. 14. Mrs. Carrie W. Sher
iff, the new national president of the La
dies' Aid, G. A. R., was yesterday after
noon the charming center of a double cele
bration of large proportions. The pleas
ureable affair was the result of a conspir
acy between her husband and the special
circle of which Mrs. Sheriff has
been for years a member, and,
has filled several official positions.
Early in the morning Mrs. S heriff went
forth, intent upon hospital work. Her
duties and friends detained the innocent
victim until a late hour. On reaching her
home she found it turned into a wilder
ness of flags and filled with friends intent
on doing her honor. During the afternoon
and evening over 600 friends paid their re
spects to the new president of the Ladies'
Aid, G. A. R.

London, Oct. 14. The Times gives this
Tennyson reminiscence: "When Hallam
Tennyson asked during the illness, on be
half of his mother, how his father felt,
the poet opened a copy of Shakspeare half
unconsciously at the page of "Cymbeline"
containing the words: "Hang there, life
fruit, my soul, till the tree die." He had
been wont to call it the tenderest repartee
in Shakespeare. His last words, except
those of a blessing to his wife and son were,
"I have opened the book."

&HAMOKIX, 1'a., UCt. 14. An explosion
of gas, supposed to have been causeil by a
fall of coal breaking a miner's lamp, hap
pened at the Stirling colliery, a mile and a
half from here, at 11 o'clock yesterday
morning.. One man was killen, four were
injured, and eight were entombed. Two of
the latter, Patrick McDevitt and Charles
Belcavige, were rescued at 10 o'clock last
night in a critical condition, but the others
are believed to be doomed because of the
presence of great quantities of '"black
damp." The dead and injured are: Dead
Thomas O'Gara. Injured Daniel Reid,
driver, skull fractured, burned and cut,
will probably die; Samuel Rogers, loader,
cut and bruised; Horace Price, doorboy,
fearfully cut and mangled; William Mack,
driver, mangled and cut.
The Six Men Kntombed.
The men entombed are: Samuel Collins,
Joseph Kelchie, Joseph Milnstock, Isaac
Donney, Michael Wetchock and Benja
min Thomas. O'Gara was married as are
also Thomas, Collins, Kelchie, and Miln
stock. The rest of the imprisoned men are
single. Yesterday was payday and a large
number of the workmen were out of the
mine when the accident occurred. The
colliery is one of the largest in the Sha
mokin district, and is owned and operated
by the Pennsylvania and Reading Coal and
Iron company. Searchers-are at work try
ing to rescue the entombed men.
What Two Survivors Saw.
William Mack, sitting on the bumper of
a mine wagon, saw his four mules killed,
while the body of Thomas O'Gara was
hurled past him like a flash. Twenty yards
behind Daniel Reid, another driver, saw
his two mules brained by falling rock
while his body was being scorched by a
volume of fire, lighting the gloom for
hundreds of feet. Another body of the
deadly sulphur tore along the smoking
gangway and meeting a ball of flame in an
alcove ignited with terrific force, causing
great falls of top earth and creating a wind
of the power of a cyclone. This caused the
lamps to go out and closed the different
Where the Men are Imprisoned.
The missing men are imprisoned between 1
two tails and the black damp which arose !
Immediately after the explosion has been
so strong that the officials and experienced
miners have faint hope of finding them
alive. At great peril to their lives the
men took turns in forcing their wav to
where the men are supposed to be impris
oned. At 4 o'clock p. m. yesterday the in
side foreman was brought out overcome
by gas ami taken home on a special train.
He says the men are certainly dead. When
the second explosion took place the men,
such as could, groped their way along dif
ferent routes to get out of the place before
the black damp set in.
