Chicago, July 13. Is Secretary Blaine
gradually approaching the last of earth,
and will he ever be able to resume
his duties at the head of the state depart
ment? These are questions that are giving
the newspa per men a lot of trouble to solve,
and are causing much anxiety among Mr.
Blaine's many friends all over the coun
try. His loctor says there is nothing the
matter wii h him but his nerves, and that
he will get well. His wife says he does
absolutely nothing in the way of state
business, and does not even write a letter, !
and that she is anxious, but confidently
hopeful. Kvery correspondent who goes
to Bar Harbor has a different story to tell
and yet niinyof them agree in particu
lars that are, to say the least, not encour
aging to Mr. Blaine's friends.
The Premier's Alleged Remarks.
Perhaps Mr. Blaine is as good authority
upon the state of his own health as any
one, and a telegram from New York pur
ports to g ve his own words in an inter
view with a correspondent of The Xew
YorV Evening Sun. This is what he' is
stared to liave said, in reply to questions
as to the truth of one report that repre
sented him as a dying man: "l am not
dying at all. I am not as strong as John
I Sullivaa. but I am good for many
years yet. As for being weak and ex
hausted tl.at's all very true. I am iier
ously wem and I need rest, but that is
no sipn that I am a pood subject for an i
undertaker. I don't eat much solid food
because I tlon"t have the desire for it. I
like ruilk, i gs, plenty of butter and good
bread and rheese. I don't walk much
because wj.''-.ing wearies me. I feel the
excess of exertion most in my back and

'I drive almost all the time. I can enjoy

I sufipose I strained them, and with tb-s
attack I am just getting over, they have
become we ker than usual. It is nothing
serious, hov.cvcr, nothing that rest and
plenty of sleep cannot cure. I wear a pair
of glasses, and sometimes when the sun is
bright a pa r of blue goggles, but that is
all. This symptom, my physicians state,
has nothing to do with my bad turn of

affair a lassitude irtiat saept over nie. I

nvy hack some and my feet are tender. I

days from rheumatism, but I think that '
is owing to the state of the weather." An

the premier assaying to a Press corre

but am improving and I shall be at my
old post soon again."
A Chicago Tribune Special.
The Chics go lYibune is a Blaine organ,
and this is the snbstence of a special to
that paper from Bar Harbor, Me. Mr.
Blame said: H am recovering my health
quite rapidly, and why in the world I am
quoted as saying I am weak and ill con

very ill. I aad a slight attack of nervous
dyspepsia, aud am not quite recovered
from it yet. My eyes are quite bad, my
back is ai ing, and my legs pain me. I

"I lie down a good deal, because a re

me a clearer head. I think such reports
are unkind they are foolish, too, and I
can not thii.k of any people who would 1e

The President Wouldn't Talk.

May correspondent telegraphs that he

the followin interview took place. The
corresponde it asked: "The paper are full
of startling and conflicting statements
pbout Mr. Blaine'suealth, and the whole
country is agitated. Will you give me
any inform it ion about it?''
The president was silent for a moment.
Then, stepring out upon the veranda, he
exclaimed w 1th emphasis which amounted
almost to excitement: "You ean't rr&L

Sharp Fight for the Base Hall Pennant

Chicago, July 13. Good playing and

club so close to the Xew Yorkers that

needed to put the eolts on top of the heap.
They won it aud for twenty-fours Uncle

a man behind him. But the fates were

day the classic features of the great base
ball player were drawn out so long that
his chin was on a level with his lower vest
button. That little lead of one point had
been wiped out and there was a matter of

Samuel Gompers said; "The moveraeii

the same kind of aid and protection
that mate wage earners connected with the
