The Great Man's Life Slowly Ebbing Away. Canadian Public Affairs at a Stand still Ponding: His Death. » i Messages of Sympathy Received Prom All Parts of th* World—Qneen Victoria's Itegrets. j _____ Associated Press Dispatches. • Ottawa, May 31.—Sir John. Mac Do nald's condition is practically unchanged, since laat evening, except that bit vital powers seem to be gradually weakening. Touching references to the dying pre mier were made in all the churches, both Catholic and Protestant, this morn ing. Hon. David Mills, M. P., a promi nent Liberal and an authority on consti tutional law, gives it as his opinion that in the event of Bir John's death, the cabinet ministers would not have to resign and appeal to the people before accepting office under a new chief. He said a law was still in force that allows a minister to resume office within thirty days after his resignation' without re election. " Sir* John's life now hangs only on a slender thread. He is righting with his characteristic tenacity against the dread visitor; but with his vitality slowly ebbing away, the unequal struggle cannot be mvcb longer maintained. Since Friday afternoon, though de prived of the power of speech, he.has maintained the cheerfulness for which he is noted in health. Though still conscious, he realizes that' his doom is approaching, and seems prepared for the final call. With his left arm, which ie still serviceable, be makes known hia desires. He passed the night quietly, .and enjoyed periods of brief rest. Whenever Lady Mac Donald enters the sick room, his face, which has assumed an ashen hue, lights up. Nothing can describe the attachment he entertains for the talented woman who for many years has been tbe wife of Canada's greatest statesman. The windows of tha sick room are flung wide open, as the heat is oppres sive. In an anteroom, ia a large table, in which hundreds of cablegrams and dispatches from England, Canada and the United States are being momen tarily deposited. Two secretaries are busily engaged dictating replies to as sistants. Queen Victoria, Lord Salis bury, the Marquis of Lome, Lord Lands downe. viceroy of India, and scores of otlier distinguished people have sent ca biegrams.of inquiry coupled with regret at tbe premier's condition. A crisis in political circles is immi nent. The cabinet sat six hours yester day, but as if by arrangement the lips of all'ministers are sealed as to what was done at the met ting. Sir Hector Langevan, as senior privy councillor, will, in tbe event of Sir John's demise, be summoned by the governor-general to assume charge of public affairs. But in view Of the fact that grave charges for malfeasance in office are at present hanging over the head of the minister of public works, he will naturally decline, leaving the ques tion of leadership between Sir John Thompson and Sir Charles Tapper, the Canadian high commissioner in Eng land. The government has already held an informal conference with the minis ter of justice. Indications are that a large wing of the Conservative party will insist upon she selection of Sir Charles Tupper as the next premier, Sir John Thompson being a Roman Catholic. A caucus of the party will be held at an early date, and parliament will be asked tomorrow to adjourn, probably for three weeks. The general feeling is to the effect that Sir Charles Tripper's antagonism to the Grand Trunk railway will prove a serious obstacle to hia suc cessful administration of affairs. At 5 o'clock this afternoon the pre mier partookv df some nourishment which he swallowed more easily than usual. He then dozed off and awoke at about 7:30. t There is no change in his condition. The physicians' attending *Bir John held a consultation at Earnscliffe at 11 o'clock tonight, and at its conclusion is sued this bulletin : "The premier passed a quiet day, and we find no marked al teration in his general symptoms. He retains consciousness much as in the first two days, and is free from suffer ing." Ottawa, Ont., June I—l a.m.—There is no change in Sir John's case. He is 'taking nourishment and resting peace fully. Tne queen cabled Sir John Mac Donald last night, expressing regret at his ill ness, and expressing a desire to keep constantly informed of bis condition. The cablegram was signed " Victoria."

Cincinnati, May 81.—The Commercial- Gazette's Janesville, Ohio, special says: Hon. James E. Boyd of Nebraska, who is here attending his father's funeral, stated to old friends that there was very little hope of the decision of the United States supreme court relieving him of his disability and putting him in the gubernational chair, by reversing tbe decision of the Nebraska supreme court. He thought, moreover, that the act making the territory of Nebraska a state, with the provision tbat all the residents should become citizens, would have no weight against the statutes of the United States, on what constitutes citizenship. He says he never suspected that his father was not a naturalized citizen until after his flection. PRESBYTERIAN DIVINES. All the Pnlptts In Detroit Pilled by Visiting Delegate*.
