Wammxcton. Kov. 20. The con.liiion of
t -x-Spcri'tary ycsUrl,iy was such as
to iiro;iM the r,i;citule of his friem'.s OS to
lci result of the illness from which he is
MjfiYriiiR. It is inipossihle to sttite accn-raU-ly
or definitely the exact nature of his
presont illness, for the family lfclines to
discuss it, anil actittg in accordance Trith
the wishes of the family, thus manifested,
the attending physicians reply to all in- !
quiries that that is a matter which they do '
not talk about outside the residonce. Mr.
Blaine, since his return o Washington in
October, continued until recently; appar
ently in unusually pood health as com-
pared with the long period of physical de
pression which prevailed during the sum
mer at Bar Harbor.
Beginning of tlif) Tresent Attack.
Tersons who saw him then, said that the
was a very sick man. However, tipon his t
return to Washington he resumed work ;
in his library.and was bnsily engagpd.it was
said, upon a revision or a continuance of his !
bock "Twenty Years in Congress." On '
Tuesday of hist week he was seized with a '
chill, fallowed by the appearance of a light !
fever. The night before he had complained '
of a slight attack of gout in tis foot. Dr. I
Franck Hyatt, whose treatment of Mrs. !
Blaine's illness two years ago was so sue-I
ccssful, and who, in the interim, main- I
tained close personal relations with the ex- '
secJetary and his family, was called to at-1
tend Mr. Blaine !
Significant (Tianpe of Doctors. j
He is a specialist in diseases of the throat ;
and lungs, anil when lie learned the nature ;
of the complaint from which the patient .
was suiTeriDK he informed the family that
it was a or w outside of his own province :
ana matt no services or a skilled general
practitioner were needed. This would of
itself show conclusively that other than the
bronchial organs are affected. Dr. V'. W.
Johnson was thereupon summoned and is
now in attendance upon the patient, Dr. J
yatt meeting mm at tee bedside. The
only authoritative statement that has been
heard approaching a definite description of
the ailment from which Mr. Blaine is suf
fering is that his trouble is a recurrence of
that from which he has not been free for
the past two years.
The Serloon IVatnre of trie Cose.
The trouble originated in the stomach.
The illness which kept him confined to the
house of his daughter, Mrs. Damrosch, in
New York, for several weeks in the spring
of 1S01 is said to have been a case of vertigo.
The attack which prostrated him while at
his desk in the st.it department last
spring, as is well known, was due to indi- '
gestion. But this is not the most serious !
feature of the aise. Bis system refuses to !
respond to the treatment. Progress 1 o wards
recovery goes on to a certain stage and
there stops. lie was no better yesterday
than he was Thnrsday, and is still conCred
to his lied. The lethargy of despondency
is the worst thinif the physicians have to
combat. " J
An Improvement Itrported. i
During yesterday af.ernnon it was stated
that Air. Bliiint 's condition was improved,
and at midnight everything was quiet at
the residence and the ehanvre for the Utter
was said to be fully m.i;:t:.ined. As a proof
of his improvement in lualih it was stated
that Mr. Blaine had rece'ved Murat Hal
stend and had iT.fnrrr.ed him of his inten
tion to start for l'asad nn, C';d., aliout ti e
first of the r.ic:.; h. Dr. .loimston, one of

COMPTRCLLLn HEPEURN'S IDEAS.
His Vlun for Improving and I'erpctnatinjt
the 7atioti&l Ranks.
WAElin:GTON, Kov. 23. A. B. Hepburn,
comptroller of the cunt-ncy, in his annual
report submits the following recommenda
tions as to the national banks: That 'the
minimum deposit of government bonds re
quired of national banks be $1,000 in case
of banks of $50,000 capital and $3,000 in
case of banks whose capiUil exceeds $00,
000; that banks be allowed to issue circu
lating notes equal to the par value of the
bonds held to secure circulation; that the
monthly withdrawal of bends pledged to
secure circulation shall not. exceed 4.rf)0,000
in the aggeegate; that the tax on national
bank circulation I repealed. The banks
have already paid into the treasury $73,
670,412.30 in taxes upon circulation." The
banks should only be assessed an amount
sufficient to defray the actual com to tLe
government of providing circulation; that
the limit of the amount which may be
loaned to any person, company, corpora
tion, or firm to 10 per cent, of the capital
stock of the bunk be so amended as to read
"capital and surplus."
An Isriio of Now Bonds Proposed.
Another important suggestion is that the
government issue bonds having twenty,
thirty and forty years to run at a low rate
of interest, with which to retire the present
bonded debt of the United States, which
bonds may be used as a basis to secure na
tional bank circulation. The comptroller
shows that by exchanging a 3 per cent
bond, having the same time to run. for tae
4 per cent bonds outstanding at the market
value of each on the 31st of October, 'Jlt
the government could have savud $6:,ltil,
651.47. Iu addition to furnishing a perma
nent basis for circulation it would prove a
great saving to the taxpayers of the coun
try. He also suggests that the comptroller
of the currency, with the approval of ti e
secretary of the treasury, be em 1-owered to
remove oflicers and director ot banks for
violations of law, alter hearing.
PruvlKlonn m to Bank Examiner.
Bank examiners, he proposes, shall be
required to take oath and give adequate
bond, and the comptroller be permitted
to appoint too general examiners of oon
i iroicuQua abilitj to help and supervise other
examiners. umcers una employes t,t
banks, he thinks, should be prohibited
from borrowing from the same except upon
the approval of the hor.r.i of directors, lie
hUo belioTe that banks should be required
to files in the county clerks' o.'iiees a list of
