ON JUNE 5TH, 1782, at An nonay, in France, the MONT GOLFIER brothers went up in a balloon. It was not the first ascension, but, up to that time, no aero naut had ventured to go aloft. The prevailing idea then was that the problem of aerial navi gation was on the eve of solution, but, after the lapse of a century, inventors are still grappling with it.

Cabinet Omeers and small-Wry Omeehold ere Get a Tip to Keep Still, Which They Do WAswaoroT, June 4.-The following cor respondeace explains itself: DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASQHINTOx, D. C., June 4, 1892.-To the president: I re spectfally submit my resignation of the office of secretary of state of the United fStates, to which I was appointed by you on the fifth of March, 1889. The condition of publie business in the department of state justifies me in requesting that my resigna tion may be aceepted immediately. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, JAMES (0. ELAINa. Resignatioa Accepted. EXEOUTIm MANSION, WASHINGTON, JunD 4, 1892.-To the secretary of state: Your letter of this date, tenderinR your resigna tion of the office of secretary of state of the United States, has been received. The terms in which you state your desire are such as leave me no choice but to secede to your wishes at once. Your resignation is therefore accepted. Very respectfully yours, BENJAMIN HARIISON. To Hon. James G. Blaine. VERY FORMAL. The Proceedings Were as Frigid as the Letters. WASHINGTON, June 4.-lamine's resigna tion was taken to the white house by his private secretary, who placed it in the hands of the president about one o'clock. Boon after reading it the president de seended to the east room and held the usual Saturday afternoon public reception. Two hundred people were present, none of whom, as he shook the president's hand, could have told from the. cool, collected manner that anything unusual had hap ,unend. Indeed the president seemed in better spirits than usual and made felici tons replies to the greetings of visitors. After the reception the president returned to the library and addressed the letter to Blaine aepting his resignation. He gave it to Private Secretary Halford, with in structions to deliver at onee. Mr. Halford took it to Blaine's house and placed it in his hands. This waa thewhole transaction. A representative of the Associated press salled at Blaine's residence shortly after the correspondence was made public and asked him to supplement it with an ex planation. Blaine smiling but Celiberately replied: "The correspondenee explains itself and I have not a word to add to it." The president was next called upon and asked if he was willing to say anything re garding the correspondence. His response, thenuh courteous, was equally emphatic. He said, "Nothing whatever." The presi dent and Blaine were seemingly in excel lent spirits, and each, after declining to talk upon the event of the day or its effeet, turned the conversation to other topics, with marked composure. Blaine's ap pearance and manner were especially noticeable as indicative of a feeling of re lief and satisfaction, which made him buoy antly cheerful. Secretary Foster showed no excitement over the news of Blaine's resignation and declined .ositively to say anything at pres ent epgarding the political situation. At torney General Miller and Secretary Noble also declined to be interviewed on the sub ject. It is understood the unusual reti cence of offioers of the government is due to a suggestion from the president that be preferred that federal officers avoid com ment on the subject. The news of Blaine's resignation created a profound sensation at the sapitol. The senate was not in session, but in the house the effect of the reception of the Associated press bullr tin announcing the event was magical. The telegram was read by the speaker and within two min utes the space before the desk was filed with a struggling throng of representatives, striving to get a glimpe of the bit of yel low paper. It was impossible to keep order. The clerks were endeavoring to call the roil, but their voices were scarcely heard above the excitement. "What does it mean?" was the question in every month. The demon sat said it meant that Blaine was standing for the nomination, but when it came to the seo oudary result, the effect on the democratic convention, there is diviilon of opinion. The consensus of opinion, however, is that Blaine will be nominated and beaten. Some thought it would result in the defeat of both Blaine and Ha risen for nomina tion and the selection of some other candi date. Sume republicans shared this last opin ion, though they were very reticent, and some thought Blaine would be nominated and elected. On the senate side but few senators were found and all decline to ex press their view. The president hsad hardly finished his luncheon when he was visited by Secre taries Elkins, Rouk, Noble, Foster and At torney Genera' Miller. All were anxious to know the facts concerning Blaine's resigna tion. During the infolmal conference which followed the president told his cabi net what had happened, and suggested in the interest of harmony and good taste, that they make no public comments on the situation. During the afternoon the pre.i-' dent sent word to the state department that he desired to see Assistant Secretary Whar tun. The latter immediately went to the White house and the president advised him of Blaine's resignation and his desire that Whaton act as secretary of state for the present. ro far as can bhe learned, Blaine's resig nation was not preceded by any notice or intimation to the president that it might he expected. The reeignation appears. thetefore, to have been determined upon suddenly, but for some time there have been various fscts known to oless observ ers in Washington which warrant the be lief that the resignation, theagh undoubt edly precipitated by recent oceurrences, had its eoigin a long time ago in causes esenstially personal, rather than political. 'he ceaues may be briefly summaried as inoompatibitity of temperament; diesgreements over publio auestions, such as the Chilian matter; inju icionacomp pilons and comnients on the part of InJudiolous friends coneernting ared Its duo either for the enacstment and execu tion of the reciprocity project, and the gen oral conduct of foreign affairs, including the management of the Bering sea contro versy, and the lack of cordial relations be tween their respective families. DUn TO MRS |ELAINE. oeme lIasde Information on the Canse of Blaine's Candidacy. WasmatmTO, June 4.-H. B. F. MaoFar land, of the Philadelphia Ledger, gives the following information, which throws some light on the cause of Etisie's resignation: Secretary Elkins went to see Secretary Blaine a few days ago, determined so get some additional expression from him-pre pared to impress, herewith, the necessity, from his point of view, of saving his honor as well as his party, by at least reiterating his Clarkson letter in more deinite terms. Elkins was prepared to show Blaine that a nomination obtained for him by the men who are booming him under the circum stances would imperil his reputation as well as his eleotion; to point out that having written the Clarkson letter he had practi call given the nomination to Harrison and could not honorably or safely let himself be used to take it away from Harrison; but he had to tone down and even omit much of what he had said, for immediately after Blaine had walked into the reception room and welsomed him, Mrs. Blaine walked in, and, after welcoming him, sat down and remained natil he left, taking part from time to time in the eonversation, and al ways in such a way as to foil the effort El kins was trying to make. The interview is said to have been one of the most interesting of the many inter esting interviews which have oceurred at the Red house during the past six weeks. All three were diplomatic in what they said, but Mrs. Blaine showed quite plainly at times the strong feelings she entertains against the Harrison., and made it evident that if her husband did anything to help Harrison to a nomination it would be against her consent. It is to be regretted, bat it is quite im possible to describe the peculiar situation here with respect to the republican noni Ination for the presidency, and not men tion Mrs. Blaine, for it is evident that she is one of the most important factors in the problem. It is largely upon what she has said and done that the Blaine boomers are banking. It was she, they eay, who first revived the Blaine boom after the Clarkson letter had been written. It is she, they say, who has kept her husband from writing or saying anything mqre that would help Harrison. It is she, they say, who brought about (through Mrs. Reed) the reconciliation be tween Reed and Blaine, which made each say he was willing to support the other. In short, she stands, they say, between the president and a renomination, and the reasons they give are not so mueh the old story about Harrison's unwillingness to make Walker Blaine assistant secretary of state, or the new story about his unwilling ness to make Colonel Coppinger a brigadier general, as the feeling she has against the president for appropriating the credit for reciprocity and countenancing the talk by his son Russell and his newspaper organs about Blaine's mental and physical condi tion.

ONE MORE FOR HELENA. , The Tall-Enders Are Given Another 1 Push Away From the Pennant. Great Falls Team Takes a Game From the Nine From Bozeman. Flrst Eleven-Inslag Oame to the Season I Played at Phillpaburg, the Homers Winning. MrsomULA, Jane 4. - Bpecial.1 - The weather this afternoon was as nice as could be for a ball game, but only a moderately good article was put up by the Misnoula and Helena teams at Higgins park to-day. Both teams found the ball and did somne I heavy hitting but the Missoula boys seemed I to send theirs in long, easly. caught tihes, and the Helena team sdmt grounders that were hard to stop until the batter ( felt one or two bases. O'Brien, I the Missoula pitcher, and Border, on first, did some pretty work. Wallace, in I the left field, for Heleha, made several good eatches and did heavy and effective batting. The frst experience here with a paid umpire was not altogether satisfactory. While it probably prevented considerable kicking from the players the decisions ren dered were not at all satisfactory to the crowd. Two representatives of the press created something of a sensation by going to him during an inning and asking his I name, and if several of his decisions were not glaringly wrong. In the third inning the umpire, in deeid ing Smith out on first, was generally hoot ed by the crowd. The ball was sent from I O'Brien to Border and from the proes stand and audience it certainly appeared a good out. In the sixth the Helenas went to work 4 sending grounders way out where it took a long time to get them and sent six men across the plate. Ii this inning Crotty sent a grounder along to left field fence, which gave him the first home run ever made on these grounds. Of the runs for Helena Wallree made two, Blansford one, Struthers two, Orotty three, Ward two, Smith one, Esterbrook one, Stingley one, Monday two; for Mis soulas, MeKeever one, Harpeter one, Me Kee one.

GREAT FALLS, June 4.-About 350 people attended the game between Great Falls and Bozeman to-day. The weather was fine and the game the best played here this sea son. No very costly errors were made, but the work of Bheets and Twineham, battery for the home team, was very fine. Twine ham played a beautiful ga~ e, making but dune error and that weas exoedable. But five hits were made off Sheets' delivery, and they were scattered. Porter. of the visi tors, hit the ball for three bases in the fourth when no men were on bases. Menefee and Emerke both got three baggers, bringing in runs. The fielding was good on both sides, and good plays by both nines were liberally applauded. Bat teries, Sheets and Twineham, Gibbs and Adams. The umpire, Mullan, gave excel lent satisfaction.

The new system of umpiring gave eminent satisfaction, and the decisions of Umpire Powers were ex ceedingly fair. '1 he Butte boys can play ball, of course, but are equally as good at kicking. The featares of the game were a phenomenal running catch by Hughes, cen ter for the home team. Both teams did good batting.

Guthrie, one of the best known of the pioneers of Montana, died at his home on Month Rodney street, shortly after seven o'clock yesterday morning. His death resulted from pneumonia, the effect of a chill contracted while attending the funeral of Col. C. A. Broadwater last Sun day. He had not been very well daring the winter, suffering from repeated colds, and when the last attack came the condl tion of his health was not such that he could stand up ander it. He was driven back from the eemetery to his home and I placed in bed, and never recovered from the attack. While not a strong or robust man physi cally William H. Guthrie was of that sort of stuff from which pioneers are made. What he lacked in size and strength he made up in grit and perseverance. Forci ble in the expression of his sentiments, a man of strong likes and dislikes, he was nevertheless warm hearted and generous and devoted to his friends. He was born in Woodfeld, Monroe county, Ohio, in 1880, and was therefore 62 years of age at the time of his death. From Ohio the family moved to Davenport, Iowa, where W. H. Onthrie lived until 1859, when the Pike's peak gold excitement broke out. Mr. Guthrie was onuf the original stampeders to that locality, where he mined awhile and at the same time ran a ranch on Clear I creek, below Golden City, Col. After three i years in Colorado. he went to Salt Lake City, remaining there a short time, and coming to Montana in 1862. For the next two years he mined on Biven'e gulch. near Alder gulch, but when gold was discovered in Last Chance and other places near Helena, he was among the first to come here. He was at one time assessor of Lewis and Clarke county, though most of the time since his arrival in Helena he has been in the live stock and butchering business, supplying Unionville t and other camps around here. For awhile he held government contracts for supply ing meat to Fort Keogh. Mr. Guthrie I brought the first thoroughbred cattle to Montana. On account of failing health he has not been engaged in very active busi ness for some years past. Mr. Guthrie was a member of the Helena district school hoard, having been selected to that position two years ago, and having another year to serve. He was also a member of the Ma sonic fraternity, and belonged to the Hel ena lodge. Mr. Guthrie leaves a widow and a son eleven years of age, an aged mother. who is now seriously ill, and a brother. H. H. Guthrie. The funeral will take place on Monday afternoon at three o'clock from the resl dence on South Rodney street. CAUSE FOR APPREHENSION. The dl5sisslppi Very High-Will Remati So Some Time. CarcAro, June 4.-Advises to the Asso ciated Press show that the Mississippi river is rising at and above St. Louis with a probability that it will not begin to fall until after the June rise, giving cause for grave apprehension when that event takes place. The Ar kansas and other rivers in the southwest, where recent heavy rains have fallen, also continue to rise and threaten further destruction to property. Means are being taken to warn the inhab itants of any sudden break in the levees, so they may flee to places of safety. Amounted to a Waterspout. PFTTSnuRo, June 4.-Advises from Potts ville, Reading and Scranton are to the effect that heavy rains, amounting to a waterspout in some places, and in others accompanied by hail, prevailed in those regions last night, doing much damage to crops and causing washouts on railroads, which blocked traffic. WORK OF A TWISTER. A Church Full or Childlren Wrecked Several Badly Injured. McCooK. Neb., June 4.-This place was visited by a terrific cyclone this afternoon. About four o'clock, while the streets were crowded, a huge funnel shaped cloud dropped to the ground. first strik ing the building of H. W. Cole and - carrying off the roof. It whirled it round and brought it down with terrific force in almost its former position upon the heads of the cigarmakers who were at work. One was severely injured.

BLAINE WAKE, HAIIRISON FUNERAL rhe Way the Situation at Mlnneapolis Is Characterized. MINNEAPOLIS, June 4.--The name of Blaine was on every lip to-might, shouted in lobbies, whispered in conferenoes, and sung in rhymes by exultant admirers as they paraded the streets. the magio of his name kindled the latpst enthusiasm of the northwest into a blaze of glory. Every where it is "Blaine, Blaine, James G. Blaine." Now that he has resigaed and thrown down the gauntlet, all admirers who were hesitating between respeet for Harrison and uncertainty as to Blaine's ae oeptanoe, have come out in open advocacy of the great republican leader and joined the pioneer boomers, their ranks have be some an army. No man asserts to-night that Blaine will decline the nomination. It is Blaine against Harrison, and all the political weapons of factional warfare have been ushered into the contest. '1 he Harri son people openly acncuse Blaine of perfidy, bad faith and treachery to the adminis tration. Blaine leaders reply that Blaine owed nothing to the administration and that the administration which he honored, could have no possible mortgage on his political future. While a great majority to-night predict Blaine's nomination, some think the im broglio will result in the selection of a dark horse. The Harrison leaders are not dis heartened. but still resolute and eager for the fray. Nearly everybody confesess that a merry fight is in store, and nearly every body seems to find pleasure in the contem plation, though now and then a man is seen who mournfully depreoates the bad feoling engendered. What may be accepted as in dicating the sentiment of the hour is the remark that the resignation meant a Blaine wake and a Harrison funeral. VERY MAD.
