Memorial Service at Augusta, Me.
Washington, Jan. 81. With heads un
covered and bowed the greatest of the na
tion stood round an excavation in Onk
Hill cemetery yesterday afternoon, whila
in continuously extending circles an im
mense throng of citizens from all walks of
life spread abroad into the beautiful
grounds of the cemetery and strove to
catch the words of the minister1 "Earth to
to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust" as
the clods rolled upon the cisket which
held the mortal remains of the great
leader of men, James G. Blaine. The cere
monies which had lwyan at 11 a. ni. wore
thus brought to a close and the concourse
slowly dispersed, leaving the great dead in
the embrace of mother earth.
The Ceremonies at the Honse.
It was an assemblage of notables which
gathered at the house services. There were
the president of the United Sta es, the vice
president and his wife, the secretaries of
state, the treasury, war, navy, and agri
culture; the postmaster general and attor
ney general. Secretary Noble, the chief jus
tice of the United States senators, repre
sentatives, and prominent officials from
very department. Many prominent civil
ians were there also, including Andrew
Carnegie, General Alger, John R. McLean,
Theodore Roosevelt, and the diplomatic
corps was well represented. The services
were simple, being those prescribed for
burial by the Presbyterian church.
Daiurnsch at the Instrument.
The services were in charge of Rev. Mr.
Ilamlin.of the Church of the Covenant.and
Walter Danirosch, the dead statesman's
son-in-law, presided firt at the piano in
the residence ami again at the ornim in the
church. The casket, bur'd under beau
tiful floral tributes, was lifted at themn
clirsion of the lmme services and taken to
the church throuch an immense throng
which lined the whole route. The honor
ary pall-bearers were: Senator Hale, Sena
tor Frye, Senator Morgan, ex-Speaker
Reed, Representative Houtelle, Representa
tive Hitt, R"!rseritative llingham: fen
eral Thomas, Kwing, of Ohio: John llav,
Joseph H. Maulev, Almet F. Jenksaud 1'.
V. T. Fly.
The Scene at the C'litircli.
All of those enumerated in the foregoing
as well as hundred of other prominent men
and women followed the hearse from home
to church. Here the decorations were of
the most beautiful and appropriate charnc
ter. There were flowers and evergreens
everywhere. Admission was by card, and
even then the church was packed to tbe
doors. Nearly every foreign nation having
a representative at this capital was repre
sented in the audience. And here while
the body rested in front of the chancel the
church services were continued, closing
with a prayer the Lord's prayer, in which
part of the congregation joined and a ben
ediction. It was then 12:40 o'clock.
Mrs. Blaine Overcome with Orlef.
It was then noted that Mrs. Blaine was
not among the mourners, as had been sup
posed. Among so many deeply-veiled fig
ures her form had not heretofore been
missed, but it was soon whispered that,
overcome by grief, she had remained at the
house. Prior to the starting of the fu
neral procession from Lafayette square
Mrs. Blaine had requested to be left alone
for a few minutes with her honored dead.
The parlor had been cleared for this pur
pose, and when Mrs. Blaine emerged after
from five to ten minutes' silent commun
ion with her grief she made her way, sup
ported on the arms of her son and daugh
ter, Miss Hattie, to the room where her
husband had died, and there gave way to
her grief in utter prostration. Mrs. Hale
and other sympathizing friends followed
ber to the death chamber. Their friendly
ministrations were of no avail, and Mrs.
Blaine was compelled to remain behind.
MEMETOES OF THE DEAD.
Friends Carry Off Flowers from Organ and
Pulpit The Interment.
The desire of the friends who attended
the services at the church to carry away
some memento of the occasion resulted in
the complete stripping of the blooms from
the pulpit and the organ rail, almost be
fore the cortege had fairly begun its march
to the cemetery. The removal began in
voluntarily, as it were. Owing to the con
tracted space through which the mourners
passed in front of the pews, those nearest
the pulpit brushed the roses and other
flowers from their insecure resting place,
and as they fell to the floor they were
picked up by those who were passing.
Persons following, seeing the movement in
front, plucked a flower as they passed by.
The Smllax Ropes Divided.
Their example was imitated by the other
persons present in the church until, as has
been stated, not a single bloom was left of
all the two broad bands of flowers that
met the gaze of the congregation as they
entered. Later in the, day while the deco
rators were at work removing tut rem
nants of their work, several ladies entered
the church and asked the privilege of pur
chasing some of the plants. There was
nothing that could be disposed of then ex
cept the smilax ropes, and with these in
their possession, by the gift of the gar
dener In charge, they gratefully retired.
The Mareh to Oak Hill.
It was 1:30 before the cortege rntered
Oak Hill cemetery, the hears being fol
lowed by a long concourse of vehicles in
which were seated hundreds of men and
women of national reputation, including
the president and cabinet, members of con-jeress-.
diplomats, .and. eminent citizens in
Ci'vil and" ptiliiical'iite'. At the grave Dr.
Hamlin read the concluding portion of the
Presbyterian buri.il service, and this was
followed by an extemporaneous prayer.
Then came the benediction, and all that
was mortal of Jat les Gillespie Blaine was
consigned to eanh. The interment was
over fifteen minutes after tbe cortege en
tered the cemetery at half past 1 o'clock.
The route to the cemetery was lined on
both sides with aii immense multitude of
people, who reverently watched the passing
of the cortege, maty following to the grave,
while others dispel sed to their homes and
business. During the funeral business in
the city was suspended entirely.
A Beautiful Place of Rest.
Oak Hill cemetery is one of the most
picturesque burial grounds in all the
United States. It is situated at the sum
mit of the Georgetown Heights, overlook
ing the natural valley of Rock creek and
almost under the shadow of the historic
Georgetown college. The mansion of ex
Governor Cook is in the immediate vicinity
and all the surroiiudings, including the
magnificent trees, are stately and beauti
ful and most of ' hem date back to the
colonial period. Mr. Uiaine's last resting
place was chosen by himself after the
death of his beloved son Walker, who, as
Well as his daughter, Mrs. Coppinger, lies

Is composed of improved real estate in
Washington and in Maine, and of coal and
timber lands in Wst Virginia and other
states and small holdings of personal prop

are developed, so that when the time comes
for a division of the property among the
remaining children t'ae estate will doubt
less amount to considerable more than at
present. There are I ut three children now
living Mrs. Damros -h. Miss Hattie and
James G. Blaine.
Cause of Mr. TCIafne's Death.
The cause of Mi. Blaine's death, as
given in the burial nerniit and signed by
Urs. Johnston and Hyatt was as follows:

AUGUSTA. Me., Jan. 31. While the last
honors were being paid over the remains of
, the late James G. Bl tine at Washington
i yesterday regular fi neral services were
held in the Congregat onal church in this
city so that the people among whom the

Remarks and Resolutions.
The Blaine family pew was hung with
floral emblems, greens and white rosea.
After the regular services remarks were
made by Hon. J. V. Bradbury, O. D.
Baker and H. M. Heat h. The remarks of
Mr. Bradbury were doubly expressive.
He is now 01 years of age, and when he
spoke of the ways of I rovidence, by which
a man of Mr. Blaine a age, when at the
senith of his possibilitis, should be taken
and those advanced in age and of little
usefulness be left, the scene was very af'
fecting. Mr. Baker delivered a polished
and classical address. Mr. Heath's re
' marks were confined tj the home life of
Mr. Blaine as seen by his friends and
neighbors in this city. Appropriate reso
lutions were adopted and the audience

Cincinnati, Jan. 31. Mill creek valley
was shaken yesterday morning by a terrific
explosion at Diehl's fireworks factory at
Reading, five miles east of Cincinnati. The
works exploded three years ago on Mount
Adams with serious loss of life. The fac
tory was then moved to Reading. The ex
plosion occurred at 8:30 in the morning in
the dry -house of the factory. One man
was killed outright and twenty-four men
and women more or less seriously injured,
nenry Horn was the man killed and his
body was burned to a crisp. Harry Evans,
foreman, had his knee fractured and was
wounded in the back of the head by an ex
ploding rocket. His injuries are fatal
Twenty-three Seriously Hurt.
In addition to the above there were twenty-three
hurt more seriously than the brief
descriptions of their injuries annexed
would seem to indicate in some cases. They
are as follows: Josephine Biret, left side of
face and left ear cut; John Dunker, face
badly cut by glass; Charles Frick cut about
the face; Maggie Groh, lip cut and two
front teeth broken out by flying timber;

Condition of Horu's Body.
The body of Henry Horn was fonnd
among a mass of burning paper and wood.
It was simply a charred mass. Horn was
to be married in the near future to a young
woman of Reading. Flying glass and
splintering timbers caused most of the in
juries. The loss to the plant, six buildings
of which were completely destroyed, was
small. The company, however, was busy
preparing for the summer season and had
already stored up a large stock of fire
works. The amount of damage to this
cannot be estimated until a careful exam
ination is made by the local managers. It
will, however, be between fl.",i;00 and
T limit; lit It Was an Kurtliqnnke.
When the ?xp!oiou occurred great ex
citement was caused in the iwany towns
surrounding Reading. Houses were
shaken and in many instances windows
were, shattered. The people supposed t hat
an earthquake was in progress and rushed
in a frightened manner from their homes.
At Hamilton, Middleton and intermediate
stations the shock was clearly fell and in
many instances large plate-glass windows
were broken to pieces. The residence of
ex-Mayor Root, of Reading, was badly
wrecked by the shock and almost the en
tire plastering of the house came from the
The explosion caused a heavy raiu to coiue
the aid of the rescuing parties at many PT
the buildings. The girls could not be
reached for some minutes and their faces
at the windows presented a thrilling pict
ure. The flames lit up the sky for miles
and spread the dread information to resi
dents of the valley. The explosion wrecked
the glass in the windows of the Reading
schoolhouse. and the school had to be dis
missed. A CURIOUS MAN AND A MATCH.
He Found Out What Made the Water
Look So Greasy.
Frankfokt, Ky., Jan. 3L Just as
church services were beginning Sunday
five alarms of fire were turned in. The
cause of it all was a man's curiosity and a
match. A group of men was standing on a
street corner at the mouth of a large sewer
guessing what made the water look so
greasy. One of them said he would see,
and he dropped a lighted match into the
oily substance. At once there was a ter
rific explosion, and one of the spectators, a
man named Haley, had part of his hand
Set the Sewer on Fire.
The flames rushed on through the sewer
consuming the oil which had escaped from
the gas company's broken pipe. One ex
plosion followed another, tearing up the
sidewalks, square after square, and shat
tering window-glass along the way. Great
excitement prevailed, women shrieking
and fainting from fright. The fire en
gines could accomplish nothing and the oil
continued to burn until it had emptied
itself into the Kentucky river. The gas
works were rendered inoperative and Sun
day night candles had to be depended upon
