She died on Saturday. and ao, analysis of her stomach showed that she had died from arsenical poisoning, enough arsenic being found to kill half a dozen men. About the time this was discovered it was announced thitt at least one member of the Hartuin family, who died in February last supposedly from trichinosis, had Died of Arsenical Poisoning. Five members of this family died shortly after eating raw pork. The body of one of the children was exhumed last week and the viscera examined and traoes of arsenic were found. The fact that the death of these persons was caused by arsenic was only discovered after the death of Mrs. Barnaby by the same drug was announced, but it was not until Monday that the facts came to light. In a few hours another death from this drug may be announced for at the pres ent time the wife of a prominent Dsnver man is ill with all the symptoms of arsenical poisoning and her physicians are in doubt as to whether she will re cover or not.

The tynestion Evidently Causing Sons One a (ireat Deal of Anxiety. Washington Newspaper Men Asked for Their Views as to HiaCaadi i#cy In 180% Elklns Authority for the Statement That the Secretary Will PositiYely Decline a Nomination. POVQBKXKMM. N. Y., April 29.—The News-Press publishes the following: "Stephen B. El kins is authority for a statement made to a representative of the News-Press to the effect that James (}. 151.'iiue would shortly announce his decision not, under any Circumstances to allow his name to be used at the next Republican National convention as a candidate for president. It is said that JAMES O. BLAINE. Mr. Blaine's letter or announcement will be so positive as to admit of but one construction—and that is that he will never again be a candidate for the presidency."

A Scheme Accredited to Harrison MM to Find Oat What Blaine latends to Do. ST. PAUL, April 29.—A Washington special to The Pioneer Press says: Nearly every newspaper man in Washington has been furnished a slip upon the top of which was printed the query, Will Blaine be a candidate for president in 1893?" The gentleman who furnished the slips said he was getting the matter for "Senator PiercVs Minneapolis Trib une. The object was to find out what the newspaper men of Washington thought about the probable success of Blaine in the next campaign. One of the cor respondents, who is very close to the Harrison administration, said that it was the working out of a scheme that was fixed up when Pierce and Lowry were down here a week or two ago, and it meant that Blaine wag to be smoked out and Mu4p to Declare His Intentions by having his nomination discussed by the Washington newspajer men. It is claimed that if it should be shown that any considerable number of Washing ton newspaper men should assert that Blaine is in the field it would be taken to mean that they had some definite in formation from the secretary of state or his friends, and that his candidacy would assume such proportions that he would be obliged to declare himself one way or another. The Harrison man above alluded to says that the Blaine talk and the Blaine sentiment apparent throughout the country has caused the Harrison men a good deal of annoyance, and that it was the president's intention upon his return to have an understanding with his sec retary of state and see if he Wiis going to permit this talk to go on unclieked. It looks as if the interviewing of the Washington men on the subject was the first step in the direction of finding out what Blaine intends to do. It also a plan of the administration to test the feeling of the corresjiondents here upon the president's popularity. The Oldest Veteran. Sr. Louis, MO., April 29.—Frank P. Blair Post G. A.
