AFRAID OF POISON
Anas Dickinson Drank of tb
Dregs of Poyerty.
8HH DREADED THE P00RH0USE,
It Was This Fear That Dethroned the
Season of the Onoe Gifted Woman.
Her Expenses to the A.ytum Paid by the
Poor Board Tho Superintendent Says
Her Phy.lcal Condition la Tory Bad
She Was Too Proud to Make Known
Her Impoverished Condition.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Feb. 28. Toor
Anna Dickinson 1" are the words on
everybody s lips to-day. Her condition
is a most pitiable one. It has been as
certained that she. drank of the dregs of
poverty. For a year past she has been
destitute. She dreaded the poorhouse,
and it was this fear that dethroned her
reason. When it cam to removing her
to the Danville Asylum the Poor Board
of West Pittston had to defray her ex
penses.
bne was watted Upon by a reporter, ac
companied by Superintendent Shultz,
during the morning. Dr. Shultz asked
her how she rested last night.
"How did you restf " was the sarcastio
reply. "Take me out of here," she con
tinued. ''This is a conspiracy gotten up
by enemies; I know what their object is;
they want to poison me."
The doctor would allow ho further
conversation with the lady. He said:
"The patient needs rest and good food
more than anything else. Her physical
condition Is very bad. In faot, I believe
if her body was built up her mental con
dition would be all right. The superin
tendent said that when the lady was
brought to the Institution Thursday she
was inclined to be violent, but she ate
well. Yesterday morning she was in a
laughing mood.
Dr. Schultz further said it will be
weeks before he can give an opinion as
to the woman's condition. She may be
cured in a short time and may never be
cured.
- Miss Dickinson was so proud that she
would not make known her impoverished
condition. Had she done so help would
have forthcoming from all parts of the
Union.
At one time her banker says her credit
was good for $100,000. Her theatrical
venture almost ruined her.
BLAIR GOES TO CHINA.
The President Nominate, the K.w Hamp
shire Senator for Minister.
Washington. Feb. 28. The PreaMont.
sent to the Senate the nomination of
Henrv W. Blair of Now TTamnahi.. n
be Envoy Extraordinary and Minister
Plenipotentiary to China.
As soon as it became known that Mr.
Blair had ben nominated Senators began
to gather around his
chair to offer con
gratulations. For
half an hour the
band shaking went
on, to the mystifica
tion of the interested
occupants of the gal
leries, who did not
understand the
meanintr of the levee.
FThe Senate short
ly after went into
nnwRT w. DT.iin. .nnrAl; Mnnlnn an1
confirmed the nomination by a unani
mous vote.
Henry W. Blair was born at Campton,
a small village in Belknap County, N.
H., Dec 0, 1334. He received only a
common school education, and after
reading law with William Leverett, a
distinguished local practitioner, was ad
mitted to the bar in May, 1859, and be
gan practice at Plymouth.
His first official position was that ot
Prosecuting Attorney of Graf ton County,
N. H., in 1860. He held that position
till after President Lincoln's second call
for troops, when he enlisted in the army
as lieutenant-colonel of the Fifteenth
New Hampshire Volunteers, In which
position he served till the end of the
war.
Col. Blair returned to the practice of
law in Plymouth after peace had been
declared and was elected to the New
Hampshire House of Representatives and
to the State Senate two years later. He
was chosen as a Republican to the
Forty-fonrth and Forty-fifth Congresses,
and declined nomination for a third
term, being succeeded by Evarts W,
Farr, who died during his second term.
Colonel Blair was elected United
States Senator to succeed Charles H.
Bell, and took his seat June 20, 1879. He
was re-elected in 1835, and was defeated
for renomination last month by Dr. J. H.
Gallinger.
Senator Blair will be chiefly remem
bered by his urgent advocacy of the bill
for Federal aid to education in the
Southern States, which has been twice
passed by the Senate, but defeated in the
House, once by vote and once by non
action. He has been chairman ot the Commit
tee on Education and Labor of the Sen
ate. He is a fine orator, has a very
genial manner and is a poor man In the
matter ot worldly goods.

letters of Warn inc.
Scranton, Pa., Feb. Js8. Prioeburg,
three miles from this city, is excited over
a report that two'well-known mine fore
men have received visits and ominous
letters from Molly Maguires or Whit
Caps. WUliam Leitenhan, a docking
boss was called upon about 8 o'clock in
the afternoon by either a stranger or a
man very cleverly disguised.
He was asked if he was a docking boss
for John Jermyn. He answered that he
was. The stranger then informed him
that he (the stranger) was a member of a
White Cap band, and they insisted that
Mr. Leitenhan surrender his position at
once. Should he fail to do so a dire pen
alty would be inflicted.
Mr. Leitenhan refuses to continue in
the position qX docking boss. The au
thorities have made a thorough search
for the stranger, but have been unable to
find him.
Walter Jermyn, superintendent of the
mine, who is a son of John Jermyn, the
millionaire, and Mr. Gilgallon, the out
side foreman, are in receipt of letters
warning them to give up their positions.
These letters bear the well-known seal
of the Molly Maguires, whose reign of
terror in this region is still well remem
bered. The notes of warning contain
crudely drawn cofflna and skulls and
cross bones.
