Nkw York, March 1.- Mrs, Kevins, the 1 New
mother of Marie Nevins-Bluine, who re- . U
cently secured ^ divorce from James Q. j ,i ea
Blaine, Jr., was seen in reference to the , gj-st
statement sent out by Secretary Blaine, in ' life;
which he proceeded to answer the remarks
made by the South Dakota judge when he
granted the divorce.
Mrs. Kevins said: "Secretary Blaine's
statement is a tissue of lies from end to end.
and my daughter will prove that to the
world before we are through with it. His
story of our interview with Mrs. Blaine is
largely manufactured out of whole cloth,

We

could not see him. She insisted upon the
nurse leaving the room,
not discuss tho matter before a servant.
The nurse and little Jim went to the
kitchen. We continued to talk matters
over for some time. All three of us were
perfectly cool.
She said site would

have spoken in a more brutal manner. I (
spoke up for Mane. 'They have isith »hm«
wrong, Mis. Blaine, in marrying without
our consent.' A moment or two later »he
turni-d to my daughter and said in an ex
tremely significant sort of way, 'Well, your i
marriage was all wrong anyway, Marie.'
Then I protested. Mrs. Blaine immediately
fiew into a fury. Ehe almost foamed at the
mouth. She rang a bell and a servent ap
peared with surprising speed. If it had
been my servant I should certmuly have
accused her <>f eavesdropping. 'Show these
persons cut, cned Mrs. Blame, and then
she added, 'and watch them. 1
"We walked out and called the nurse and
little Jim. At the door of the carriage the
muse, who was crying out of sympathy for
Marie, said: 'Mrs. Blaine, your a gimse to
go away like this. You're his wife. Go
right up to his room. No one has a right to
stop you.' Marie went back into the house.
1 stayed in the carriage. Then it was that
the scenes took place."

Tbe Rev Thomas J. Ducey, pastor of Pt.
Leo's Catholic church, whom Secretary
Bluine in bis ©tatemeut criticises for having
married James G. Blaine, Jr., and Marie
S».vins, said;
"Mr. Blaiue says X transgressed my priest
ly duties m marrying lus son. What I did
I did with the knowledge uid auiiroval »>f !
1 dta w tin tne ttnowtwtge ana approval oi
Archbishop Corrigan. The dispensation n
was obtained from the archbishop, who
knew all the circumstances. This relieves
me of ail responsibility in the matter. Mr.
Blaine's sou told me he was twenty-one
years old. How was 1 to know that he was
only eighteen! Mr Blaine should prefer
his complaint to the archbishop, not to me.
Why doesn't he publish the answer 1 sent
to his lottert"
Archbishop Corrigan delegated his secre
tary, Mgr. McDonnell, to reply to Father
Duoey's statement.
"I am surprised," said Mgr. McDonnell,
"that Father Duoey tries to shield himself
by drawing the archbishop in the matter.
All that the archbishop had to do with th«
marriage was to issue the dispensation.
Father Ducey came to tho archbishop's
house with young Mr. Blaine and Miss
Kevins. He explained the situation. The
archbishop was reluctant to grant a dispen
sation. He talked to the young couple for
more thau an hour, but he could not dis
suade them from their purpose. Tho young
man said that as he lacked but a few weeks
of being twenty-one there could be no ob
jection on the »core of age. The archbishop
told young Mr. Blaiue that on account of
the conspicuous position of his father he
should be careful not to do anything that
might interfere with his father's plans. The
young man was persistent, and on Father
Ducey's recommendation the dispensation !
was granted.
The Archbishop*. Part.
"It should lie understood that the arch
bishop's part was simply to grant permis
sion to Mr. Blaine and Miss Kevins to b*
.
married by a Catholic pnest. It was the
duty of the pnest who performed the cere
mony to ascertain if there were any ob
stacle« to the marriage.
"When'young Mr Blaine's father wrote to
Father Ducey the letter published, he »ent
a copy of it to the archbishop. The arch
bishop requested Father Ducey to explain j
to Mr. Blaine at ooce. Father Ducey said
that ho would explain when he thought
proper, and the archbishop told Father
Ducey that as a matter Of courtesy he
I
. ... X» o,.i_L
should reply to Mr. Blame s letter. After
the marriage Mrs. Sherman, the wife ol .
General Sherman, called on the archbishop
to speak about the marriage. The arch
bishop explained his position and told her ]
how he had acted in the matter. Mrs. '
Sherman informed Mr. Blaine what the
archbishop said. She called on the arch
bishop again and told him that Mr. Blaine
expressed himself as perfectly satisfied with
tbe archbishop's action. Mrs. Sherman also ,
said that Mr. Blaine highly appreciated the
courtesy of the archbishop.
Mrs. Blaine, Jr., Will Hit Back.
Siotrx Falls, 8, D., March 1. -Secretary
Blaine's letter on the marriage and divorce
of his son created a sensation here. Judge
Palmer, attorney for Mrs. Blaine, Jr., says
he is surprised that the secretary should
have written such a letter. Mrs. Blaine,
the judge declares, bus been ill ever since
her return from Deadwood, but will reply
to the letter in a very few days. Judge
Palmer says it will reach rempletely many
of the statements made by Mr. Blaine.
Mrs. Blank; refused to see reporters. It
is understood tluit she has some interesting
correspondence which will be called out by
the secretary's letter.

Ducey'» Answer.
Washington, March l.—Secretary Blaine

tien the letter of Father Ducey in answ«>r
to the «>ue contained in bu» iBlaiiie's) state
ment, as suggested by the reverend father.
Mr. Blaine replied that he had no objeo
tion to tin- publication ot the priest's letter,
but that ho would not give it out himself.
It was tho priest'» privilege to publish it.
He milled casually that the letter did not
amount to anything.

ate, deriding considérations of expediency

The story of Senator Htiermau's contem

When shown the published statement,
Senator Sherman replied with a warmth
that betokened some annoyance; "It is an
absolute lie out of whole cloth. I nover
opened my month to mortal man upon tho

Th© McKinley Tariff Act Valid.
The McKinley tariff act was declared
constitntional by the supreme court in a de
lusion rendered by Justice Harlan. The
coses were those of Marshall Field, of
Cbicaga, and of New York merchants, who
protested against the payment of duties on
certain goods on the ground that tbe Mc
Kinley bill was not a legally and constitu
tional enactment, by reason of the oiumis
sion from tbe enrolled bill of the tobacco
rebate clauses contained in the bill when it
passed.
The court bolds that this omission does
not make tbe bill illegal. It also bolds that
the reciprocity and sugar bounty sections of
tbe bill are constitutional. It was con
tended that tbe reciprocity section was un
constitutional, because it delegated legis
lative powers to the executive. The chief
justice and Justice Lamar dissented from
the opinion of the court. They contended

Bewilved. That this committee hereby heart
ily congratulate the people of this state, irre
■pei'tlvo of party, on tho result of the s\i|>«rvis
ors' elections, rellectlng as they do tho deep and
widespread Indignation felt at the dastardly

stolen, the decision of the courts defied and tho
will of tho peuple as expressed at the pulls sot
at naught.
To Enlarge the State Committee.
Delegates to Republican state convention«
in New York are apportioned to assembly
«listricts according to the number of Repub
lican votes they cast nt preceiling clei-tion*.
Tbe convention of April 3 H will consist of
777 delegates.
John W, Vrooman presented a letter and
delivered an address in favor of his proposi
tion to enlarge the membership of the state
committee so that a representative may bo
admitted from every one of the 138 assembly
districts. He would also, be said, enlarge
the executive committee, on which falls th*
brunt of campaign work. The letter was
referred to tho executive committee for
consideration, and the sense of the conven
tion will probably be taken upon it.
Having decided that headquarters are to
be opened in this city as soon as suitable
rooms can be obtained, the state committee
adjourned to meet in the Kenmore hotel,
Albany, on tbe eve of tho convention.

Democrats, urging thorn to organise for
Cleveland. The address concludes as follows :
The unfair and undemocratic action of the
machine in New York indicates a purpose to
make the will of tho people subservient to the
greed of the politician. We therefore believe
that the time has come for the active and reoo
lute organization of the Democratic
Georgia, lest the sentiment of the people in
this «Ute, a« In New York, find expression
through the machinations of political intrigue

of tho Democrat* of Georgia for the next presi
