The Tears of the Nation Shed Over

His Mortal Remains Tenderly Laid to
Kost-He Needs No Bpltaph but
His Nuiue—Mrs. Blame
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Jan. 30.—Blame could
not have a private funeral; the surging
waves of public interest swept over the
barriers, and made of his obsequies one
of the most impressive public demon
strations ever witnessed in this country.
The moßt eminent men in the nation
stood around his bier. All business in
the national capital was suspended dur
ing the services. The presence of the
president, tbe cabinet, supreme judges,
the high officials of congress and tbe
diplomatic corpß was not more signifi
cant than the homage of the waiting
crowds, who, in respectful silence, lined
the streets through which the funeral
The parlor on the second floor, where
the body lay, was fail ly embowered in
flowers, tributes from prominent people
irom all parts of the country, from
President Harrison down. The presi
dent's tribute, a wreath of orchids and
roses, was placed on the coffin.
CROWDS OP DISTINGUISHED ATTENDANTS.
Tne president entered first accom
panied by Mrs. McKee, and following
them came the officials of the executive,
legislative and judicial departments, the
diplomatic corpi and others, who by
ties of kindred, friendship or associa
tion were entitled to the privilege of
being present at the final rites of the
distinguished statesman. The parlors
were not able to contain all who re
ceived invitations. Even the home was
too small; many per force remained in
their carriages.which filled the adjacent
streets, extending along Pennsylvania
avenue in front of the treasury, war,
state nnd navy buildingß. A concourse
of several thousand people occupied La
fayette square, opposite the Blame man
sion, and the doors and windows of the
adjacent houseß were thronged with
spectators. A marked air of decorous
solemnity attended even the outside
THE SERVICES AT THE HOUSE.
As tho hour for the services arrived
the mourners, including the luemberß
of the family, grouped around the cas
ket, the remainder of those present
standing, as there was not roo □ for
chairs. A simple service of prayer con
stituted the rites. Bey. Dr. Hamlin,
standing beside the casket, delivered in
a low tone the Presbyterian service for
the dead, Walter Damrosch, meantime,
touch ng the keys of the piano to the
notes of a slow dirge. Dr. Hamlin
thanked God that life was ended only
tbat immortality might begin, and be
sought the Almighty for comfort to the
members oi the stricken household.
THE CORTEGE MOVES TO THE CUURCn.
This ended tho brief, impressive ser
vice ; the casket waß closed and tenderly
borne to the hearse and the procession
wended its way slowly to the church of
the Covenant. The Btreet outside was
thronged with spectators who reverently
doffed their bats as the cortege passed.
Following the hearse were tbe pall
bearers, as heretofore given ; then came
the members of the family and attend
ing physicians, then tbe distinguished
guests in due order.
At the church ropes were stretched to
exclude all not especially invited.
THE WIDOW ALONE WITH HER DEAD.
Mrß. Blaiue was not among the
mourners at the church. Just before
the starting of the funeral procession
from Lafayette square Mrs. Blame re
quested to be left alone for a few min
utes with her dead. The parlor was
cleared for this purpose, and when
Mrs. Blame emerged she made her way,
eupported on the arms of her son and
daughter, to the room where her hus
band had died, and there gave way to
her grief in utter prostration. Mie. Hale
andother sympathizing friends followed
her to the death chamber, but their
friendly ministrations wore of no avail,
and Mrs Blame was compelled to re
MAGNIFICENT FLORAL DECORATIONS.
The decorations »t the church were
very rich and t fiectiva. The terrace
formed by the pulpit and the rail sepa
rating the organ gallery from the plat
form afforded a background for a striaing
massing of plants and cut flowers. On
the ledge of the pulp t cut fiowers were
ranged in ribbon ten or twelve inche-
In width. Below this ribbon and sus
pended from acosa the front and curved
sides of the pulp ir _Lwere short featoons
ofemilax. The i iistnal font at the
right, of the pulpit was twined with a
emilax robe, and bore in its bowl a
hunch oi Hsrrißsi lilies. Over the cut
fiowers were foliage plants. At
either end of the rail, against
the wall, stood an immense rubber
tree, and towering overall, immediately
behind tbe reading deak were two
Kentias palms. The front of the organ
was covered with curtains of amUax.
Ropes dropped from the apex of the in
strument to the candelabra on the sidt
walls of the organ loft. This decoration
was made under tbe direction of tbe
public gardener and has never been sur
passed here in either profusion or per
The space in front of tbe pulpit in
which the coffin lay was entirely cov

SERNICKS AT THE CHURCH.
Tbe funeral proceßaion arrived at the
church at noon, and to an improvisation
on the organ made of several themes of
hymns which Blame loved, the distin
guished concourse moved slowly up (he
aisle. The body was deposited at the
The services at the church were as
simple as at the house, conßißting of tbe
Bervice for the dead, selections from the
scriptures and prayera.
Then the funeral procession reformed
and the body was conveyed to Oak Hill
cemetery and laid to rest.
AT THE CEMETERY.
At the cemetery, on the successive
terraces that border the winding path
way leading to the grave, scores of spec
tators were standing. Many pressed
forward to pluck a flower from the
wreath on the column that adorned the
dead man's bier. The floral tributes
were so numerous that five wagons were
necessary to convey them to the ceme
tery, where they were arranged artist
ically back of the grave on a huge Btrip
CONSIGNED TO THE EARTH.
Dr. Hamlin read the Bimple burial
service of the Presbyterian church.
This waa followed by an extemporane
ous prayer, then came the benediction
and all that was mortal of Jamea Gilles
pie Blame was consigned to the earth.
THE SON AT THE GRAVE OF lIIS FATHER.
The interment was over IS minuteß
after the cortege entered the cemetery at
1:30 o'clock. Slowly the crowd dis
persed. The president, hia cabinet,
senators, tbe family, all entered their
carriages and were driven away—all
but one, James G. Blame, who is junior
no longer, who stood beside the grave of
his father until the masons had bricked
in the casket and the grave diggers
filled in the remaining space. When
all this was accomplished he returned
to his carriage, and the last of the group
of spectators disappeared.
A SCRAMDI.E FOB MEMENTOES.
The. desire of friends who attended
the services at the church to carry away
some memento of the occasion resulted
in the complete stripping of the flowers
from the pulpit and organ rail, almost
before the cortege had fairly begun the
march to the cemetery.
