The comedi an's illness has lasted for some time, but it was not until aboefcsix weeks ago that it began to be noticeable and alarm hfa wife and his manager. Mr. Scanlan spent hfa vacation at Mount Clements aud at the Orient'd hotel. Coney island. He was given his part in hie new play, "Mavourneeu," but he had such a good time that ho neglected to look at it until it. was almost time to open Ufa tour. s W. J, 80 A NLA.N. He Hogan to Act Queerly. When hfa season opened on Sopt. 7 in Springfield, Mass.. the city in which be was born, he knew hfa part and played it all right He remained three \u*oks on the road and rtune into New York and opened his season at tho Fourteenth Street theater on Sept. 28. He gave a very good perform ance the first night and next day he seemed delighted with the press notices given him, but he became more and more reckless in his way of living. He would frequently stay out all night and turn up at the matinee next day and try to go through hfa part. About six weeks ago the people in Scan Ian's com pany began to notice that he was acting very queerly. He had a strange glitter in his eyes and seemed to he suffering from nerv ous prostration. HLs stomach then began to bother him and his head pained. One night he forgot hfa lines almost entirely and the members of the company had to prompt him. Manager Pitou theu found it neoes sary to employ a prompter for tho comedian. Dr. Hamilton called on the actor and had a long talk with him, after which lie wit nessed his performance. As a result of this Dr. Hamilton notified Mr. Pitou Unit the comedian had incipient paresis. Mrs. Scanlan*» Devotion. I From the first signs of hfa trouble Mrs. Scanlau was indefatigable in her attentions to ber husband. She never left him out of her sight. She heard the stories about hi5 oonditiou and allowed no one near him ami teod to dress him for the stage. He carried out tho doctor's instructions and he quickly began to feel strong again and act and look so well that nobody but an exxiert bould toll that hfa head wan affected. Hfa speech was all right and he did not stummer aud kwo his voice—both early signs of the troubte. Positive Nlffna of Pares!#. It wns not until last Tuesday night that Mr. Stanlan showed i*»itive signs of porosis. He began to have hallucinations and used to imagine that people in the audience were speaking his lint«. He thought enemies wore conspiring to rain hfa engagement. Tlio one hundredth performunne of the piay was given on Thursday night. Toward the end of the performance a large harp wns brought to the actor ami he stepped to the footlights ami made a speech. He seemed rationoL He said people were Raying he was out of hfa head, but that it was not so. It was not hfa head or hfa heart that was affected, he said, but hfa stomach. Then he Hpoke alxiut Harrigan and Joe 11 until y as representative Irish comediaus and seemed about to cry. Mr. Pitou seeing him grow maudlin called to him to stop, which he did. On Christmas Mr. Scaulan gave a performance with but a few defectà, but the doctors thought it best to place him under»i nurse's care. The Comedian's Plaintive Plea, The nurse was introduced to Scaulan as a man who was to massage him. He was somewhat lucid and went to hfa wife. "Mag gie," said he, "don't let them put me in an iv«ylnm, for if you do I shall surely go mad. It fa mv stomach and not my head that both rrs me." After tiiat lie got violent and it took »ev eral porters to hold him. When Mr. Pitou heard of the trouble in the hotel he said he would not allow the comedian to play again aud cancelled hfa engagements. Scanlan ha« followed the pace that kills and fa reap ing the usual reward. He fa thirty-four years old, and made a great reputation with his plays "The Irish Minstrel," Shane-nu Lawn," "Mavourneeu'' and "Myles Aroon," bis numerous catchy sougB and his wonder fully graceful dancing.

Washington, Dec. 28.—Mr. Blaine has given no greater assurance of how impor tant ho regards his programme of reciproc ity than his aooeptenco of the hospitalities of tho Chilian minister. It is a story full of in just before Mr. Blaine'* return here in the latter part of October. Bluinu Ulnus with Monti. Secretary Blaine mid Miufater Montt have been very friendly, and a significant indication of the secretary's pacific inton ^Ion» was hfa iMccptance of an invitation to ,jj ni , l j v , ohilian miufator -Suturduy The president and othors of his advisers, . however, are not so hopeful of n i»>acoful j outcome. There is no question that the administration fully expects a refusal of Chili to comply with its demand for an apology and indemnity, and fa ready to ask congress for jsiwer to •declare war, for which prep;nations have been and are still being actively made. Chili, feeling that she is In tho right, fa determined not to apolo gize, even at the cannon's mouth. It fa Chili's turn to move, and she will de mand arbitration. This demand, instead of an offer of apology and reparation, may place the war section of the cabinet in a ridiculous light after the pains they have spent in patting on war paint.. Chill'# Clever Scheme. Chili lias not yet asked for arbitration, but it fa kuowu to tho cabinet and to your cor respondent here that, she fa likely to do so. If arbitration of the differences between tho two countries fa naked for the Chilian advisers argne very shrewdly that the United States congress will never allow war to be declared because Chill has refused to comply with tho demand of President Har rison for an apology and indemnity for the ' Baltimore oftuir. The Chilians who live in this country have been advising President Montt and prominent residents of Chili to block President Harrison'* game by respect fully requesting the United States to join with them in laying the whole matter be fore some commercially aud politically disin terested foreign country. I'lipular in America. These American Chilians have insisted that congress, while it would unquestion ably declare war on the demand of tho presi dent, who would uppeid to its (uitriotism, would very glady refuse to do so if Chili asked that the facts in the case be first pass ed upon by on arbitrator. It has been represented in Chili that arbitration is very popular with Americans. The only bops of tlie war section of tho cabinet is that tho war section of the Chilian administration— which is very strong—will fail to see the necessity for making any reply to the United Stab«, except that tho Baltimore affair was a common street brawl for which Chili is not ut all responsible. The Army and Navy Ready, Miufater Montt has become alarmed, and has cabled to President Sloutt that this government meant fight and that the navy was rapidly being placed on a war footing. Not only has tho navy been made available in event of hostilities, but great activity has taken place in tho army, aud both de partments are now ready to act in concert at u momeut's notin'. Admirid Gherardi, instead of Admiral Walker, will be placed in command of the naval forces. It has also been pretty definitely settled tiiat General Miles will have command of the land forces. All hope that Chili will comply with the de maud for reparation and apology seems to have been abandoned. a Chill Will Be at the Fair.
