Blame rallied somewhat yesterday and his family thought he would be able to be out within a few days. Instead of further improvement, however, he waa found to be much worse today. The at tending physician made three visits to the Blame mansion today. Just what tbe disease ia which haa at tacked Blame, no one seems to be able to say.

My information ia euch, however, tbat it cannot be doubted. lam told tbe disease haa so far progressed as to affect Blaine'a brain, and at times he is delirious. There is a very evident desire on the part of the family to keep the facts from the public. r That they have been alarmed today is and tbat Blaine'a condition is "serious is true, notwithstanding tbe de .nialsof the family, the refusal of the physician to talk, and the general air of mystery with which the case is sur rounded.

SAD DROWNING AFFAIR. FOUR YOUNG MEN SWEPT INTO A WHIRLPOOL Two Others Narrowly Escaped—The Ac. cidf-nt Caused by the Upsetting of a Scow ou the Snake River in Idaho. Spokane, Wash., Nov. 24.—A Review special from Lewiaton, Idaho, gives meagre particulars of the drowning of four young men near there in the Snake river, this afternoon. A government ecow ia at work in the river, and six men were in a boat endeavoring to eet off a blast, when the boat capsized. Only two of its occupants reached shore. The remaining four hung to the boat until they were swept into a whirlpool and wrenched loose. Among the un fortunates was the fireman of the scow William Wiggins, one of the most pop ular young men in Lewiaton. None of the bodies have been recoveied. The ecow baa been at work clearing obstructions out of the river for about three monthe. At the time of the dis aster it was anchored off the mouth of Dry Hollow. Ten men were aboard, end six were in a skiff alongside the drill pipe. The water runs very swiftly at tfur point and there are some treach erous rapida. In a twiukling the skiff waa capsized and the occupsnts were floundering in the icy waters,! of the Snake river. Two of the men, named Mohl and Kubu, swam ashore, the ecow being only about 40 or 50 feet from the bank; but tbe others either cou-id not ewim or were afraid to make the effort. They clung to the capsized boat and were quickly swept down the stream some 300 feet. They were caught there in a whirlpool and torn away from the boat and all four were drowned. The victims were: William Wiggins, member of a prominent family bere; E. W. Evans, foreman of the scow, aged 40k He had a wife and family in OUeneburg, Wash.; Harvey William*, London, Eng land, aged 50; Reuben Neumyer, aged 25. After th 9 men were swept into the whirlpool they sunk and none of them came to the surface. For a minute the men on board the scow were dazed by the horror of the situation. Then another Bkiff waa manned and an effort made to rescue the victims. After a lively chase for two miles the capsized scow was overtaken, the tnpe being entertained that some of the men beclirging to it, but this proved a disappointment. It is thought all of the victims wertt swept loose in the first whirlpool. At 8:30 p. m. none of the bodies had been recovered, and it is considered doubtful whether they will be found. Men from this place and ranches along the river are at work tonight, and hon tirea have been lighted along the shore to aasiet them in tne search. A SHOCKING CHIME.
