Ciuv-ago, June J8 Emmons filaine,
son ofex-8ecretary Blaine, died shortly
before noon of Wood poisoning, tlie re
sult of inflammatien of Uie bowels. The
fact of his death waa concealed for some
timein order Untt the family might be
readied with tbe trews in a less shocking
manor than the public announcement.
All .efforts to get telegraphic -communication
with him failed, however, and at
12 slfi the news became public. It was
only a quarter of an hour before the fatal
end came that an intimation that young
Blame was in a dangerous condition be
came known, and then only to a few of
his most intimate friends. t Young
Blaine was a notable figure in the excit
ing soenes in connection with his father'
presidential candidacy at Minneapolis,
and look his father's defeat greatly to
heart. He was confined to his bed
shortly after his return from the north.
It is thought possible the strain and ex
citement at Minneapolis, followed by
the keea diappointment of the ontcome,
bad not a little to do with the prostra
tion ensuing. 11m death occurred in
tlie home of Blaine'a father-in-law, Cy
ras II. McCormlck. Only his wife.
son and Mrs. McCormlck were present.
Death came so suddenly that there was
not time to summon other members of
tbe familiy. -
