Senate, and the Bates silver repeal bill
in the House can not be brought forward
except by a rale of the Committee on

would liave been instructed to enter into
negotiations with the representatives of
the Provisional Government of the late
kingdom. His way was blocked by Mr.
White, who objected to immediate ac
tion. The most prominent bills under
discussion are the anti-option and na
tional quarantine bills in the Senate, and
I the silver and bankruptcy bills iu the
House. A strong effort will be made to
pass the last two bills.

F DEATH OF BLAINE.:
.THE GREAT REPUBLICAN LEADER
DIED AT -'WASHINGTON.
Worldwide Interest The Country in
Mourning Record of a Career Un
matched jn American History for
-Botli Success and Adversity.
Hon. James G. Blaine died at Wash
ington, at 11 o'clock, on the 27th inst. ,
of the disease that has so long sapped his
strength. The end came very peacefully,
the sick statesman passing by almost im
perceptible degrees from the state of un
consciousness to that of death. The
members of Blaine's family were at his
bedside when the end came and received
with the anguish which only bereaved
ones can know, the knowledge that the
long, brave fight against the inevitable
was over, at last. The immediate cause
of death was stated by the physicians to
he heart failure, but this was a mere in
cident of the organic complaint with
which he had long been afflicted. This
!complaintwasBright's disease of a pecu
James Gillespie Blaine was born on
Jan 31, 1830, in West Brownsville,
Washington County, Pa. He came from
noted Scotch-Irish stock, his ancestors
having been among the pioneers who, a
century aud a half ago, ascended the
great limestone valley in which Carlisle
is situated, aud founded the village. Mr.
Blaine's grandfather, Col. Ephraim
Blaine, was an officer in the Revolution
ary Army. His son, Ephraim L. Blaiue,
was married to Miss Maria Gillespie, a
devout member of the Roman Catholic
Church. They had seven children five
boys aud two girls. The second of these
live sons was James Gillespie Blaine.
Young Blaine was educated at Wash
ington College, and was prominent at
school for his bright intellect and physical
vigor. He graduated in 1847, and went
to Blue Lick Springs, Ky., and became
a professor iu the Western Military Insti
tute Here he met Miss Harriet Stan
wood, of Maine, who afterward became
After two years Blaine returned to
Pennsylvania and took up the study of
law. In 1853 he moved to Augusta, Me.
Iu 1854 he entered into partnership with
Joseph Baker, a prominent lawyer of the
city, and the two purchased the Kenne
bec Journal, of which MrnBlaine at once
became the editor, and made it a promi
nent organ of the Whig party. In 1857
lie became editor of the Portland Daily
Advertiser. In 1856 he was a delegate to
the first Republican National Conven
tion. In 1858 he was elected to the Maine
Legislature. He rapidly made a reputa
tion as an orafijr and parliamentarian,
and was soon uie Republican leader of
the State, being chosen chairman of the
Republican State Committee iu 1856,
which position he held for twenty years.
In 1862, Blaine was elected to Congress
from the Kennebec distiict by 3,000 ma
jority, and he was re-elected to each suc
ceeding Congress until he was transferred
to the Senate in 1876. He soon took
rank as one of the most vigorous debaters
and astute parliamentarians in the
Mr. Blaine was Speaker of the Forty
first, Forty -second and Forty-third Con
gresses, aud in that position achieved, a
great and enduring reputation. He did
not add to his reputation in the Senate,
the atmosphere of which, did not suit his
Mr. Blaine was a candidate for the
Presidential nomination in 1876, and
came within twenty-seven votes of being
successful. His vote increased from 291
on the first ballot to 351 on the seventh,
but he was beaten by a combination
against him of the delegates supporting
Morton, Conkling. Hartranft, Bristow
and Hayes, who united upon Hayes and
made him the nominee.
In 1880 Mr. Blaine was one of the
leading candidates at the Chicago Con
vention. Out of a total of 755 votes, he
received on the first ballot 284 votes. On
the thirteenth and fourteenth ballots he
received his highest vote, 285, which
gradually declined to 267 on the thirty
fifth ballot. On the thirty-sixth ballot
Gen. Garfield was nominated by a com
bination of the elements opposed to Gen.
Grant and a third term.
When the Republican Convention met
in 1884, in Chicago, it was clear that Mr.
Blaiue had lost none of his hold upon the
party. On the first ballot he received
334 votes, and he continued to gain un
til he was uominated'on the fourth bal
lot by a vote of 541, of which 400 came
from Northern States. The election
turned upon the result in New York,
which was lost to Mr. Blaine by 1,047
i votes, Dr. Burchard's alliterative speech
about "Rum, Romanism and Rebellion"
being credited with having large in
fluence in c ising his defeat.
Blaine o Id have received the Repub
lican nomljation in 1888, but declined

Iu many respects, Blaine's greatest
work and the most beneficial to the
country, was done as Secretary of State.
He was the leading figure in Garfield's
short administration, but resigned three
months after his death. He was again
appointed Secretary of State by President
Harrison, but resigned in May, 1892, to
become a candidate for President in op
position to Harrison at Minneapolis. As
Secretary of State, his efforts to promote
peace aud commerce with South Ameri
ca, aud to unite the republics of the
western hemisphere in a commercial
and fraternal union againpt Europe, gave
rise to a distinctive policy, which was
followed by the Pan-American Congress
at Washington. The reciprocity idea as
a means of extending American trade
must also be credited to Blaine's in
fluence. His mind seemed to broaden,
and his intellect grow more statesman
like as age advanced, and, but for his
falling health, and the domestic sorrow
that broke his heart, there is little doubt
that he would have achieved his supreme
ambition of becoming President of the
Mr. Blaine also made a reputation in
the literature of his time. He was a
brilliant writer and his "Twenty , Years
of Congress" is a monument to his in
dustry and ability.
The news of liis death was received
with interest and sorrow not only in
every community in our land but through
out the civilized world. President
Harrison issued a proclamation as a
t tribute to his memory. President-elect
' Cleveland sent to Mi's. Blaine a message
J of condolence, containing a high tribute
' to her husband's character. The legis
lature of most of the States adopted res
olutions of respect and admiration for
the dead statesman.
Mr. Blaine died in the Protestant faith,
and was buried with the rites of the
Presbyterian Church. There is no doubt
that his brother and sister, who are
devout. Catholics, desired to see him re
ceive the last rites of the church of his
mother, but this was denied them.
REVOLUTION IN' HAWAII.
An American President and a Cry for
A bloodless revolution has overthrown
the Hawaiian Government in the Sand
wich Islands. Queen Lilioukalani has
been deposed, a provisional government
has been established with S. B. Dole,
an American, as President, and has
been recognized by all governments ex
cept England, and a commission of fiyp.
members has reached Washington to beg
for annexation to the United States.
The cause of the revolution was the
attempt of Queen Lilioukalani to force her
cabinet to sign a new constitution dis
franchising all foreigners. This led'to
the formation of a Committee of 'Safety,
who speedily forced the Queen to resign
and disbanded her government. Order
was preserved by 300 armed men landed
from the U. S. steamer Boston. The
demand for annexation has created much
interest "at Washington. It is believed
that some sort of American protectorate
will be arranged.
The deposed Queen Liliuokalani, of
Hawaii, issued a proclamation in which
she protests against the provisional gov
ernmenc and declares thatshe only yields
to the superior force of the United States.
Joseph O. Carter, one of the commis
sioners sent by the provisional govern
ment of Hawaii to make a proposition of
annexation to the United States Govern
ment, said the new government wishes
to be annexed to the United States as a
Territorial District. The- general senti
ment in Washington seems to be favor- j
able to the annexation. Many Senators
and R presentatives come out openly for
it. The United States steamship Mohican j
has set sail from San Francisco for Hono
lulu; the Ranger and the Adams were
ordered to be gotten in readiness for
their departure to Hawaii, and the coast
defence vessel Monterey was ordered to
Mare Island Navy Yard to take on its
The British Government, on learning
the news, promptly telegraphed Sir Ju
lian Pauncefote, the British Minister, to
file a vigorous protest against American
occupation of the island. A serious
diplomatic difficulty is feared.
Mr. Cleveland Wants His Time.
In an interview with newspaper men
recently, President-elect Cleveland said :
"The date is now at hand when I must
have more time to myself than I have
had since the election. Thus far the
most of my time has been devoted to in
terviews which have been by no means
unpleasant nor unprofitable, but other
things are uow pressing upon me which
require, my uninterrupted consideration.
I wish, therefore, you would say for me
through the press, that after February
4: 1 shall remain at Lakewood, where I
hope to be undisturbed in the work which
will imperatively demand my attention.
I also especially desire it understood that
from now until the 4th of March letters
should be addressed to me at the Mills
Building, New York. "
Mr Blaine's Funeral.
The funeral of Mr. Blaine took place
on Monday, and lie was buried, with tho
rites of the Presbyterian Church, Rev. I
Dr. Hamlin, of the Church of the Cove
nant, conducting tne services. He was
buried beside his son Walker and daugh
ter Alice, in the beautiful Oak Hill
Cemetery, on the West Washington
Heights. The pallbearers were ail per
sonal friends of the deceased. Admis
sion to the Church of the Covenant,
where the services were held, was by
card. The President, members of the
Cabinet, the Diplomatic Corps, and
most of the distinguished public men in
Washington were present at the services.
Mrs. James A. Garfield was present.
i A Serious Explosion.
Escapiug oil from the gas works at
Frankford, Ky., was the cause of a ter
rific explosion. One of a crowd of men

and dropped, a lighted match into the oil.
A terrific explosion followed. One man
had his right hand blown off.
The oil in the sewer continued to ex
plode underground, tearing up block af

streets. The fire department could do
nothing. The gas works had to be shut
down, leaving the city in darkness.
A Town Over a Burning Mine.
Honey Brook, a little town seven miles
west of Hazleton, Pa., is indangerof de
struction and its inhabitants of being
hurled into a burning mine. From the
crevices along the streets, caused by re
cent settling of the earth, gas and steam

doubt about the existence of a great fur

earth. In some cases plasteriug has been
entirely removed from the walls. Two
barns have almost entirely disappeared
in the earth.
