Expected, However Blaine's Disease
Continues To Be a Mystery A Bulletin
That Says Bis Condition Is One of Great
Weakness An Outside Doctor Predicts
Fremont. O., .Jan. IT. Ex-President
Rutherford B. Hayes is seriously ill at his
home here. He is suffering from neu
ralgia of the heart and, while his condition
showed some improvement yesterday, he is
still a very sick man. Mr. Hayes had two
Blight attacks of neuralgia of the heart
during the pat month, but they quickly
disappeared and caused but little alarm to
the ex-president, his family and his friends.
On Saturday last while in Cleveland visit
fug his son he was again attacked by the
malady, but with increased severity. He
had just completed preparations for his re
turn home when the attack came, and
although he suffered severely determined
to carry out his intention.
Kept the Illness Quiet.
His son ebb accompanied him. A re
port of Mr. Hayes' illness had been tele
graphed to Fremont, and on the arrival of
Mr. Hayes he was met at the station by .
.toother son, Rutherford P., and the family
physician. Dr. Bilbist. The stricken 1
general was Immediately driven to his
home in Spiegel Grove, where be has since
been under the almost constant care of Dr.
Bilbist. Net until yesterday did the fact
of Mr. Hayes' illness become known. A
reporters went at once to the Hayes man
sion and saw Dr. Bilbist, who confirmed
the reported illness and stated that the ex
president was suffering with a severe at
tack of heart neuralgia, which he had re
ceived while in Cleveland. (
What Immediate Friends Are Told. j
He said the patient had partially recov
ered from the attack, but was still in dan
ger. He added that he would spend the
night at Mr. Hayes' bedside, and from this
it is inferred that Mr. Hayes' condition is
very serious. Kverything about the home
of Mr. Hayes was quiet last night, and no
Information could be aftertained. Imme
diate friends have been told that he is not
seriously ill, and he will be about in a few
BLAINE'S DISEASE A MYSTERY.
He I Very "Weak, However, Kperiul!y as

Vasuv(;t. Jan. 17. Mr. Blaine's dis

family nnd the nttetidini' physicians. The
latter decline without theexpress authority
of the family to livule the nature of the

Looks for His Death Shortly.
Mr. Blaine has at various times in recent
years been treated by physicians other
than those in immediate attendance upon
him at tbe present time. In the list are
Dr. N. S. Lincoln, one of the most popular
consulting physicians of Washington; Dr.
G. S. Magruder, a Washing physician; I)i.
Dennis, of New York and Bar Harbor, and
others. Not one of these gentlemen is able
to state the nature of Mr. Blaine's organic
disease. One of them, however, ' said yes
terday that he had once prepared an intel
ligible bulletin as to Mr. Blaine's condi
tion, but was peremptorily requested to
withhold it from publication. He added:
"The real nature of Mr. Blaine's illness
will probably only be made known
when the certificate of the health office
has been made public, and I fear that will
occur very shortly." No change in the pa

THE HOMESTEAD POISON CASE.
Gallagher and Davidson Testify Bur
leigh's Opinion of Cooper's Letter.
PITTSBURG. Jan. 17. Gallaeher. the
Homestead cook, gave testimony yesterday
in the Homestead poisoning case. His evi- j
dence contained nothing new in substance,
although it was more detailed from, what
has already been printed in these dis
patches. Hempsey offered to pay him to
put powders in the fowl to make the
"scabs" sick, and he agreed, out of sympa
thy with the strikers. He presented a bill
for his services, and Dempsey endorsed it
"O. K." The bill was put in. evidence.
Cross-examination did not shake the wit
ness a particle.
The Cooper Letter Not Presented.
Davidson, the other principal witness
who has figured in the dispatches, corrobo
rated Gallagher's testimony. Then George
W. Crail, a Pennsylvania railway train
dispatcher, swore that Dempsey left i"
with hiin for a man who called and signed
his name "Gallagher.' This closed tbe testi
mony for the day. Mr. Kaiss, the Balti
more coal merchant, was in court, but his
letter was not produced. District Attor
ney Burleigh didn't give the letter much
importance. He 6aid there was nothing
irregular in Cooper being paid for coming
on to this city to testify.

young ladies wl ich w.'s made worse oy

The girls were taken to the residence of

whereas fast a the firemen brought in

provided with temporary homes by the
neighbors. Intl e excitement and darkness
many interesting incidents occurred. Mis
Graves and Miss Clara Brown had left a
couple of theate.- tickets in their clothes.
On reaching the street they remembered
the tickets, and frantically rushed back
through a dense volume of smoke to reach
their room. In this they were unsucce'

found that the escape by the staircase wa3
shut off by the flames. They ran to a win

Miss Lulu B-irkhardt and Miss Ger

made their escapj, but remembered that
their music was n peril of the flames and
rushed back to g- t it. They barely escaped
when the stairca- e went up in flames. Mis
Irene Rosen field s-sved nothing but a black
board, which sh j carried out under her
arm. When she made her appearance in
the street she wo -e a red slipper and night
dress, which was a plaything for the wind.
The fire burned nearly an hour, and im
mediately after it was extinguished tem
porary repairs w re made, and some classes
were held in the building next morning.
The loss is probably not greater than $3,000;
THE DOG WAS SUSPICIOUS.
A Runaway Marriage Prevented by
North Ltxs, Conn., Jan. 17. An at
tempted elopement at Apple Orchard, a
small town near Sew London, came to an
unexpected but not the less happy end.
Everything was ia readiness for the elope
ment, and the mi.rriage in which the affair
ended would have been less conventional
had it not been for the distrust which a
large Newfoundland dog had of the pro
ceedings. Miss Nettle Colton, a pretty
woman of 20, is the recognized belle of the
place. She is the organist of the church.
Dad Didn't Like Young Styles.
Her father, a well-to-do farmer, was very
much opposed tj John Styles, a young
farmer of the place, and forbade Styles'
attention to his daughter. The young
people met clanditinely and arranged to
outwit Colton. Sunday night Miss Colton
went to church with her parents and pre
sided as usual at the organ. As the last
hymn preceding t he sermon was sung she
slipped quietly from the church and en
tered the sleigh with which her lover was
waiting for her outside. The young couple
would have got a way unobserved, but they
had not counted n the interference of Miss
Colton's big dog.
All's Well That F.nds Well.
He regarded the proceeding with evident
distrust, and as tie sleigh started the dog
leaped to the horse's head, seized the reins
in his teeth an 1 hung on with all its
weight, bringing the horse to a standstill.
Mr. Colton, whose suspicions were aroused
by the dog's barking, left the church and
discovered the trouble. A stormy scene
ensued. Miss Colton refused to obey her
father's orders to leave the sleigh. The
larger part of the congregation surrounded
the party and tin ir sympathies were with
the young people. Mr. Colton gave way
and the party a-' jo'iriiiil ;, :i:e church.

and the Other Six Badly Injured.
Philadelphia, Jan. 17. Yesterday af
ternoon the four story brick building at
517 Commerce street, occupied as a sales
room and warehouse by the Nixon Bros.
Paper company, collapsed. Seven men
were in the building at the time. Three
were buried in the ruins and killed; one
was badly hurt and three escaped unin
jured. The dead are: John KcKinna and
Joseph Wallace, packers, and Albert W.
Markes, foreman. Albert Gales, a colored
porter, was injured internally. The three
upper stories werestored full of paper bags.
In the onice in the rear of the building on
the ground floor W. H. Nixon, head of the
firm; Samuel Bayles, treasurer, and C. S.
Forsythe, agent for the Wilkinson Auto
matic stoker, were seated talking shortly
before 0 o'clock.
Burled by Bricks and Badly Hurt.
Gales, McKinna, Wallace and Markes
were working further down toward the
doors. An ominous cracking of splinter
ing joists was heard and then with terri
ble suddeness the whole upper part of the
building came down with a rush upon the
men on the first.floor. Gales was nearest
the front door and as the falling plaster
began to rattle about his head he made a
rush for the street. Just as he reached the
pavement the front wall feli, burying hiin
out of sight. He was dug out by the fire
men and was found to have Iteen fortunate
enough to have escaped with serious, but
not fatal injuries. When the building be
gan to cave in McKinna, Markes and
Wallace ran toward a window in the rear
of the store. The first two reached it, but
the tons of brick, joists and paper fell upon
tuem just as they were about to jump out
and crushed the life out of them.
Dug Out by the Firemen Unhurt.
Wallace was caught further back. The
three gentlemen in the oflice escaped unin
jured. They were effectually walled in.
however, by the rums, and were assisted
out by the police and firemen when they
arriveu ob the scene, i lie cause of the col
lapse of the building was probably the
weight of paper stored in the upper floors,
although Mr. Nixon claims that the stock
piled up there was not nearly so great as it
has been on many other occasions. The
building is a total ruin, and will have to be
entirely rebuilt. The loss is about $30,000.
THE DEADLY GRADE CROSSING.

were both placed under arrest, notwith

The collision occurred at 11:30. The car
containing the six passengers was on its
way to state street in charge of John Tay
lor, conductor. As he approached the
well . known crossing he nays that he
looked ahead, and although the gates were
up he saw the train coming. He claims
that he notified the driver to stop, but that
as he did so some one called to Saunders
to proceed, as the way was clear. What

fairly on the track when the swiftly-moving
train bore down upon it.

The car hail nearly succeeded in crossing
the tracks when the engine struck the rear
end of it and it was overturned. The force
was terrific. Tne car was a total wreck
and the six passengers were buried
beneath the shivered glass and broken
timbers. While the passengers were yet
buried beneath the ruins of the car belp

efforts were made to rescue them. The six

SMALL POX BRtAK'S OUT IN IOWA.
The Disease Tiik.-n to as County toy a
i.ermati I mmi-:--titt.
I)KS Moinks. Iowa, Jan IT. Residents
of Cumlierland and vicinity, in the south
ern part of Cnssco'.'.nty, are greatly excited
over an outbreak of small pox in a malig
nant form, which was not recognized until
scores of persons iiad been exposed. A
young German immigrant brought the dis
ease to the home of Henry Borchers in a
bundle of clothing. The bundle was
opened by Borchers' little girl, who was
taken sick and died. Borcners and another
member of the family have also died and
two others are very sick.
Made a Wrong Diagnosis.
Tbe family was attended by l)r. Murphy, of
Cumberland, who failed to diagnose the case
properly. The true disease became known
when a German girl who came over with
the young man revealed the fact that there
were cases of small-pox on board the ship
Solar, on which they came to New York,
and that they had been quarantined. At
the close of the quarantine period, accord
ing to her story, the immigrants were in
structed to throw their luggage overboard.
Threats of Lynching, of Course.
The young man secreted bis small bun
dle of clothing and brought it ashore and
with it the disease germs. The state board
of health bas taken active measures to com
bat a further outbreak, but many have
been exposed and great fatality is antici
pated. Tbe residents of Cumberland, when
they learned of Dr. Murphy's error, were
highly indignant aud threats of lynching
were freely made.
