JUSTICE. NOT SYMPATHY
Mrs. Blaine Jr.'s Caustic Reply
to Her Father-in-Law.
SHE WANTS HEB LETTEB8 PRINTED.
The Secretary Given Ten Day* In WMek
to Comply with Her Demanda, Klse She
Will Giro Out the Full Test of Thera
Herself —Miarepresentation Charged.
Sioux Falls, 8. D., March 2.—Mre.
JamoH G. Blaine, Jr., rhto to the public to
day her answer to Secretary Blaine's letter.
The letter wan written entirely by Mr*.
Blaine without advice or promptings from
lawyer« or any one else. The letter is ad
dretwed to James G. Blaine. Washington,
and n a* follows:
Hite Demand. ,In.rice.
Mr Deaii StB—Yon have furnished the (mb
lie with a remarkable production under the
caption of "A Personal Statement." I consider
it my duly at Ibis time to address you with 1
that degree of dignity which your position ns a (
public man entitles yon to. I acknowledge
yonr well earned and richly deeerved fame us
« diplomat and appreciate folly the weight
Which your uttoran.«. possess a* fully as do I
ÄV*;r^:rhy:;"n n aTe
But I shall expect from you that considerate
and honorable treatment which 1 am sure your
keen senne of equity and fairnees will dictate.
The powerful man of a groat nation will surely
accord to a weak and defenselees woman her
full mead of justice. You surely can Ill afford
to withhold it.
II wish it distinctly understood by you that 1
am not asking lor sympathy I respectfully dm
maud justice It 1« in yonr power to grant this
simple request. It remain, to he seen if yon
will do it. 1 will aid you by suggestion Have
the kindness to publish in connection with yonr
statement the full text of the letters you have
quoted from. Do not. like a shrewd and nn
principled person, .elect only such pwnagos a*
may be needed to maku out a case, I sit give the
entire contenta to the public, that 1 may be
judged righteously _ You have the documenta
surclv, else you ouuld not quote from them. 11
will give you .ufflrlent time in which to oon
form to my reasonable demand - say ten days.
A It I unt Challenge.
If at the end of that time you fail to respond
I shall deem It my duty to give in substance
thoir content» aud corroborate my statement
by publishing letters from your son both prior
and subsequent to o»ir marriage You know
full well that your charges against mo regard
ing the marriage are unfounded. 1 give yon
ample time to retreat. You have two alterna
live«. tho one znggeated or silence. Your con
sideration for your grandson will surely induce
yon to decide In favor of the first.
This is not a proposed diplomatic engagement
on my part, for your suceues in dealing with
jiowerfnl nations la too well known for mo to
meet you on any other ground than as the
mother of yonr grandson.
1 take it that yonr statement was prompted
I chiefly by the remarks ofjudge Thomas in
I rendering his decision which gave me my free
| dom. I have no defense to offer in his behalf.
I simply desire, now that y»m have arraigned
me by tho use of fragmentary quotations from
my love letters to your »on, that yon 1» fair
enough to publish the originals in full. I will
then prove to tho world that your son w a« far
frarn being a weakling, aud that you. his proud
father, weil knew it long Imfore ho married
mo. Truly yuan. Maux Navras Ulaxmk.
Mr». Itlatne, Jr.. 111.
Tlie letter of Mrs. Blaine, Jr., was written
undor the most trying circunuitances. For
day» »he has been-extremely ill and notable
I to move from her bed. She declared con
| stantly, after receiving the first intimation
of tho senior Blaine's personal statement,
that she would immediately write it for the
benefit of the public, to be read on the fol
lowing »lay, but when she started on the
task her strength failed her. Today it was
only by tho aid of her strong will power
that she managed to answer it.
THE BLAINE DIVORCE CASE.
Judge Thoms» Say« He Had No Whh to
He Severe In III, Remarks.
Dbadwood, 8. D., March 3.— Judge
Thomas was interviewed by a reporter of
The United Press in regard to the letter of
the Hon. James Q. Blaine on the divorce
case. Tho judge was quit« adverse to tolk
ing on the nubjetst, but after much persist
enoe consented to explain his position. He
said: "Under the circumstances 1 deem the
matter somewhat indelicate to discuss in
tho public prints after having passed upon
the case in a judicial capacity."
In regard to Mr. Blaine's opinion that he
was too severe in his criticism of Mrs.
Blaine, the idder, and her son, he said ; "It
seems that Mr. Blaine believes I was too
severe and 1 regret it very much, a» I cer
tainly did not wish or intend to be unduly
harsh or severe in the remarks from the
bench, though I thought at the time, and
still think, they were couched in the most
moderate and conservative language and
upon the clear and undisputed testimony in
the case, which in my judgment would have
warranted much stronger language than I
used.
"In regard to Mr. Blaine's statements of
the case I do not care to express an opinion
«» they were not before me for considera
tion, hence I would not consider them in ar
riving at my judgment, however true and
weighty they may be. His defense of his
| »on ami wife were natural and filial. I ad
mire him for his defense of bis wife. Doubt
less, from his standpoint, he believe» she
was right and maybe she was, but a» I said
before, my remijrks concerning her were
justified by the undisputed testimony in tho
case.
"I have nothing to say in regard to Fat her
Durey's statement, except that 1 have for
Mr. Blaine the deepest sympathy in the sad
affliction brought about by the ill advised
I marriage and unpleasant notoriety. I am
j heartily sick of the notoriety and believe
the matter should now be dropped in the
interest» of all concerned."

Coinage Filibuster* to He Headed Off.
Washington, March 2.—The entire day
was consumed in the senate by a further
discussion of the Idaho case, the adviK'ates
of the claims of the contestant, Mr. nag
gelt, on both sides of the charob»>r having
the floor. Mr. George, of Misaitwippi, who
desired to sjieak on the question, pleading
IndispcHiUon, the senate, without action on
the case as contemplated, adjourned.
The house devoted the day to the con
sideration of the Indian appropriation bill,
which was finally pu»»-<l after occupying
the attention of the bouse for nearly ten
days. The incident of the day was the dis
cussion over the retention in the bill of an
item of $1,000 to I«ay the »alary of Captain
R. P. Pratt, superintendent of the Indian
school at Carlisle, Pa. A telegram was read
from Captain Pratt stating that the Catho
lics hail a powerful lobby in Washington to
influence legislation, and that this church
exercised a great influence upon public ques
tions before congress. The provision for
Captain Pratt's salary was stricken out.
The clause assigning army officers as Indian
agents in case of vacancies hereafter was
adopte^.
The reporte on the bills to place wool,
cotton, machinery, cotton ties and binding
twine on the free list were reported and the
house adjourned.
The Tariff end Silver liebstes.
Tlie debate on the tariff measure« report
ed by the committee on way» and moans
will l»gin In the house next Tuesday, un
ies» the anti-silver men succeed in delaying
action on th« 1 order of the committee on
rule» setting apart time for the considera
tion of the Bland bill. The order 1« »et for
debate on n«>xt Monday, and hodih v»«ry
active work will be done by tho Democratic
opponents of tho Bland bill this week in an
endeavor to keep the house from taking up
the measure.
Am for tho Republican», they have practic
ally decided to do all that 1» possible to em
barrass the Democratic party by a means
that Mr. Bland and hi» adherents do not
consider In the least embarrassing—namely,
to assist tho free coinage men in getting
the Bland bill before the bouse for consider
ntion. Many of the Republicans believe
Hint agitation of the free coinage question
by the Democrat« in the htgise will prove a
good card for the Republican party in tho
next campaign.
To Step Filibustering.
The committee on rules is prepared to nip
in the bad any attempt at filibustering that
maybe mode by tho anti-free coinage mem
bun« on the consideration of tbo ruins. The
committ»» lias derided that if dilatory too
tles that will consume more than two days
ore resorted to another «pedal order will be
brought in Wednesday that will eff»<ctnally
put n stop to delay and will give the horn»
an ojiportunity to pass almost immediately
on the rule setting apart time for the con
sideration of the free coinage bill.
The anti-silver Demotrate have not out
lined a plan of action to be pursued when
the special order comes up for discussion
Monday. Their leaders say that a confer
ence will be held with Mr. Bland before any
policy is sgre«xl on. Meanwhile, however,
the antis have been active in counting
nose« to ascertain their strength.
If the special order la disponed of Monday
the tariff deliate will begin n> xt day. It
was intended to have begun this week, but
the illness of Mr. Springer prevented this,
aud Mr. McMillin, who was selected to open
the debate in Mr. Springer's stead, asked
for more time in which to prepare for the
effort.
The Quorum Question.
Mr. Catchings, of Mississippi, a member
of the committee on rule«, was asked if the
decision of the supreme court in the woolen
classification act »-ose and It« bearing on the
(juestion of a quorum in the house weald af
fect the decision of tho speaker or the
attitude of the Democratic party on this
question. He said;
"Not in the least. The derision of the su
preme court, from a legal standpoint, is not
comparable to the argument« made in the
house by Messrs. Reed, McKinley, Barrows,
Dalzell, DoUiver, Lodge and other Republic
an lawyers. The court has not touched
upon the question of the abuse of Mr. Betid
in counting alweut members as present.
They take the house journal an evidence of
a quorum.
"Members were in the cloak rooms, at their
hotels, not actually present in their seats,
who were counted to make up a quorum.
Tho demand for the yea# and nays by one
fifth of the members present in the house is
a proper one, and even were it not a con
stitutional provision, this rule should tie en
forced by the hunse itself. It Is a safeguard
fur the proper conduct of public buxine»».
Many measure» are passed without divisions
which are defeated upon a yea and nay vote,
members being afraid to have the glare of
public opinion turned upon them. The su
preme court decision, therefore, will not in
any way alter the action of the speaker or
tbo Democratic party in tho house so for as
it affects their interpretation of parliament
ary law." _

to the encounter is not only within a shade
of that manifested up to the eve of the

actually overshadowed the festivities of the
main day of Mardi Gras. It has been fight
in the hot»4», fight on the street corners,
fight talk hero, there aud everywhere.
Maher is in the liest of health and spirits,
and his appearance when stripped boars
testimony to the fact that be has received
the best of training. If there is an ounce of
superfluous fle»h upon his entire laxly it
cannot be located. He is firm and hard
from shoulder to foot and his muscles are
bard us iron. In characteristic he is modest
and retiring, and the meet that be could be
persuaded to say was that he had never

fought him, and that he »»aid not say
whether or not be was strong and quick
ami clever enough to go against the Austra
lian until he had met him in the ring and
gone through a couple of rounds.
Fitzsimmons is in bettor condition than
