Waphixoton, Jan. 13. Mr. lslaine wa
weaker last nfcht than he has been since he
suffered the last relapse. Hi.s physician1
called at 9:30 o'clock and remained in thi!
sick room for forty minutes Uurius whic 'i
time they made a thorough examination
of the patient nnd trave him some adi'.i
tional medicines. When they came out D-.
Johnson said that Mr. Blaine had not had
a relapse r.t 7 o'clock, as sta'itl: he cuii". I
not call it that. There were complication-,
however, nt this time, which had yielded
to treatment readily, li'it from which t'.-.e,
patient had not recovered evp;r at the
loss of strength.
The Patient Couldn't I'reuthe.
The "relapse" referred to lr.iht have been
a deadly one. Between (' and 7 o'clock p.
m. Dr. Hyatt was hastily summoned. He
was in the house until nlxnit o'clock. Ha
said on leaving that the trouble was the
difficulty which the invalid experienced
in breathing. The attendant supposed
that the labored respiration was caused
by an attack of heart failure. Dr. Hyatt
said that upon examination, the heart was
found not to be affected, the only apparent
difficulty being in respiration. Medicine
was administered to , which the patient
quickly responded and the unfavorable
symptoms which had alarmed the family
Indications That Blaine Was Wnrse.
He was sleeping at 10;15 when the doc
tors left the house, but it was thought pru
dent for one of them to return. Dr. Hyatt
would go back at 12 o'clock nnd then de
termine whether it was necessary for him
to remain through the night. Dr. John
ston left with the understanding that he
would not return unless Dr. Hyatt, when
he came, thought Dr. Johnston's presence
was necessary. There was no unusual ac
tivity about the house, but there was an
Blr which indicated that Mr. Blaine was
worse. The guarded utterances of the doc
tors especially were more significant from
what they failed to say than from what
they actually said.
Ioctors Change Their Programme.
BATER. Upon Jheir departure about
10:15 p. m. from Mr. Blaine's residence the
physicians stated that they would not re
turn until late, as stated above; but it
seemed that something must have oc
curred to change this programme, as Dr.
Hyatt returned to the house within fifteen
minutes and si ayed thore. To all outward
appearances it looked as if one or both of
the doctors would remain with Mr. Blaine
Lights liurninK at Midnight
At midnight Dr. Hyatt was still in the
house and it was observed that he was
there for the night or until relieved by Dr.
Johnston, so as to meet and if possible
counteract any sudden emergency such as
that which occasioned the hasty summons
of both physicians last evening. It is un
derstood that the doctors have again to re
sort to the administration of nitro glyce
rine to stimulate tbe heart's action, and
the fact that shortly after midnight bright
lights were burning in the room connect
ing with the sick chamber seemed to in
dicate that apprehension of further com

courier ho has just arrived here from
Mazatlan brings news of a most remarka
ble occurrence, the disappearance of La
gunda Mi dre, or Mother lake, one of the
most beautiful sheets of water in the state
of Cinalon. The lake was about thirty
miles Ion f and twelve wide. It was situ
ated at the foot of the Sierra Miidre ninnn-
j tains, the surrounding couutry being de
voted to agriculture. A few days ago
there were a series of slight earthquake
shocks felt in that section.
Startled the Natives.
It was during one of these seismic dis
turbances that the natives were suddenly
startled to see the water in the lake dis
appear as though the bottom had fallen
out. Th' rasands of pounds of fish were left
stranded on the bed of the lake. This sud
den disa pearance of the water was caused
by a la go crevice, which is supposed to
have been caused by the earthquake.

Capt. rinnt's Investigations.
PlTTSBUP.o, Jan. 13. The trial of Hugh
F. Dempsey for complicity in the whole
sale poisoning of the Homestead workmen
last summer was begun in the criminal
court yesterday. The trial itself, so far as
it went for the day, did not reveal much
if anything not already known to the
public. But that there is a large sized sur
prise in the background the counsel for the
prosecution and a half dozen doctors and
expert chemists know. It was thought
that the witness through whom this mine
!s to be exploded would be on the stand
yesterday, " tut this feature was finally
postponed until today. This witness is no
other than Captain Hunt, the well-known
Found Arsenic in Their Stomach.
He has been engaged for some time, at
the instance of the prosecution, in search
ing for poisons in the remains of several
Homestead workmen who had died under
suspicious circumstances since last sum
mer. Of course he refused yesterday to
reveal anything as to the results of his ex
aminations, but it was learned from an
authoritative source that arsenic in con
siderable quantities was found in one
stomach at least, traces of croton oil in
another, and traces of arsenic and other
mineral poisons in both bodies exhumei.
Theevidence of Dr. Cooper yesterday was
pretty positive as to the poisoning by ar
senic of one of the men who worked at
The Poison Was Changed.
Dr. Cooper said after he left the stand
that he bad no doubt at all that the man
Spayde. whom he had treated had been
dosed with arsenic. "Then it didn't sur
prise you, doctor, to learn that arsenic
had been found in the bodies of Homestead
men was asked. uNo," was doctor Coop
er's reply; "of course they found arsenic
and other poisons, too. The poisons seem
to have been changed from time to time.
If Spayde had died I should have had a
post-mortem held most surely, and I don't
doubt that arsenic would have been found
in him, as it has been in the less fortunate
men who died." .
Composition of the .fury.
After a plea for delay on account of ab
sent witnesses for the defense, which the
court overruled, the jury was selected. It
consists of six farmers, one clerk, one gard
ener, one painter, one manufacturer, one
merchant and one 'gentleman." Mr.
Breck outlined the events leading up to
the case, with which the public is already
familiar, lie thought the confession of
Gallagher and its corroboration by othr
witnesses would establish tie defendant's
guilt, lie explained the four counts of
the indictment two chaming attempted
murder and two agirravate.l assault and
WATCHMAN SPAYDE'S CASE.
Dr. Cooper Te-.iil;,-.'. Very Directly
f IB m w
n i in v m
A half dozen w itnesses w ere called for
the prosecution, of whom the most inter
esting was Dr. James Cooper, an English
man, with diplomas from Guy's hospital,
Ixmdon. nud several other English institu
tions. Ilia te.stitnony,as already indicated,
was upon the symptoms cf arsenical poi.
soiling manifest in the case of Chris
Spayde, a Homstead watchman. Dr. Coop
er said he treated Jspayde for six or seven
weeks for irritant poisonine, also for gas-
tro-ententis, nnd afterward for arsenical
poisoning, the latter symptoms being well
developed, particularly the swelling of 1 he
eyelid and general pufliness of face and the
vomiting of peculiar mucus. To the lat
ter treatment he responded.
Stood Cross-Examination Well.
On cross-examination he admitted that
croton oil would have the same effect. He
bad not made a chemical examination of
the vomit. Did not consider a chemical
examination necessary where a physician
was sure of his case. Witness said the
same conditions could have been produced
by salts of copper. Salts of copper could be
formed by victuals being allowed to stand
in a copper vessel. Copper, however,
couldn't have brought out the color of skin
he described, but instead, a rash. The
cross-examination of Dr. Cooper lasted
over an hour. Question after question was
asked, but he answered all with a readi
ness that seemed never to tire, and Mr
Porter finally gave him up.
The Case of George A. Swaney.
George A. Swaney was then called.
Witness worked in the Homestead mills
and was twice taken sick and went to his
home in Latrobe, where he was attended
by Dr. S. J. Burchfield. Dr. Burchfield
testified as to his treatment of Swaney,
whose symptoms, the physician said, very
mucn resem nieu poison, very few ques
tions were asueu wittness, ana ine court
adjourned for the day.

A Twin Screw Steamer Gets Through
Colorado Kiver Rapids.
Gr.EEN RIVER, U. T., Jan. J3. The twin
screw launch Major Towel! started from
the mouth of San Rafael river Wednesday
evening for her trip through the cataract
canon of the Colorado river. The craft
made the twelve miles in an hour, being
thrown from side to side of the stream in
a helpless condition. She managed to es
cape the rocks, but at the mouth of the
cataract she struck a snag and sank.
Everybody escaped. This is the first trip
ever made by a craft of her size.
