i "The txviumua' of Blame' illness
dates back some year. The earliest (
suns ol ill-health were associated aitlt j
and no doubt due to a gouty tendency,
which manifested itself in a subacute
attack of gout, disturbance of the di
gestion and progressive innutrition and
ii'inia. huhsequent event prove at
this time that change were going on in
the arteries of the body which resulted
later in the syniplont of the obliteration
of the vessels and chronic disease of the
kidneys. In Ita-emrer aign of lung
complication appeared, It ia probable
there waa much tubercular infection a

Blaine so tiered was associated with a
disease of the lungs, and death wa
certainly hastened by It. For three

the night before his death he did not

SKETCH OF HIS 1.1 'K.
Outing the past qiiaitcr of a century
there has been no more striking figure
ill American politics than James Oillespi
Blaine. He was recognised for years as
the most prominent American eitien.
There wa no one, it might truly be said,
in whom the public took more interest,
Mr. Blaine was bom in West Browns
ville, Washington county Pa., January
1S;;0. Ilme.ulv education whs sed

Itigo of excellent teachers at his own
home, slid fur a pun of the year 18-11 he
was at school in Lancaster, Ohio, where
he lived in ihe futility of his relatives,
Thomas Kwing, the secretary of the
treasury. In Hsuicitition with Thomas
Kwing Jr afterward a nioinler of
congress, young JU.iinp lies!iiii his pre
paration for college, Sometime after
graduating Im hectuiie. a toucher in the
Western M i lit ui v Institution at Blue
Lick Springs, Ky. Hoi o he funned
the iicqniiintrtiice of Miss Hairiet Stun
wisid, of Maine, who was connected
with a seminary for young Indies at Ihe
neigh noting town of Milletshtirir, and to
whom within a few month he was
niiiiried. Subsequently he moved to
Maine and engaged in the movement for
the formation ot the republican party
with all his energy, and his earnest and
incl-ive discussion of the rising conflict
between fieedoin and slavery attracted
wide attention. After serving several
term in the state legislature he was
elected to congress in 1802. where, in
one branch or the other, he served for

pernled during the service. The pres
ence of the president, the cabinet, the
supreme judge, the high orticialsof con-
gryss and the diplomatic corui was not
more significant than the homage of the
waitinir crowds who. in restectftil si-
lence, lintnl the streets through which
the funeral cortege p.ised.
AT THE nol'SK.
A simple service ot prayer constituted
the rites. Kev. Dr. Hamlin, standing
beside the casket, delivered in a low tone
the Presbyterian service for the dead,
Walter Dam roach meantime touching
the keys ot the piano to the notes of a
alow dirge. Dr. Hamlin thanked God
that life had ended only that immortality
GRtKP Or MRS. BLAISE,
Mr. Blaine was not among the mourn
ers at the church. Just before the start ot
the funentl procession from La Fayette
square she requested to he left alone for
a few minutes 1th her dead. The parlor
was cleared for the purpose, and when
Mrs. Blaine emerged she made her way,
supported 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.
AT THE QKAVK.
At the successive terrace that border
ed the winding pathway leading to the
grave scores of spectators were standing.
Many pressed forward to pluck flowers
from the wreath on the column that
adorned the dead man's bier. The
floral tribute were so numerous that
five wagons were necessary to convey
them to the cemetery, where they were
arranged artistically back of Ihe grave
on a huge strip ol canvas. Dr. Hamlin
read the simple burial service of the
Preshyterian church. This was fol
lowed by an extemporaneous prayer,
then came the benediction, and all that
was mortal of James Gillespie Blaine
whs consigned to earth. The interment
was over 15 minutes after the cortege en
tered the cemetery at 1:30 o'clock.
Slowly the crowd dispersed. The presi
dent, cabinet, senators, family, all en
tered their carriages and were driven
away Waving the remains of America's
foremost statesman to slumber in their
Revolution in Hawaii.

Mardar at FertUai.
Portland, Or.. Jan. 29 William He
ry Wold ridge, painter, aged 46, wl.o
lived on the Slavin road, near Garden
Home, an j a short distance east ot Wash
ington county line, wa murdered in c. 1 1
blood by Frank Ohlegschlesger, a youi.
German aged 20 year, while the two
were walking home together from Port
land. Frank Ohlegsrhlager is the rontetr-l
murderer of William Henry Wol.lridgn.
The crime was committed between 9 and
10 o'clock Friday night while the mm
were crossing what i known as the dou
ble bridge, about six mile west of ll M
city. Nineteen hours later the nnirdi r
er" confession wa wrung from him t y
Ihe officers. It was a cold and eru.-l
tragedy. The murderer wa aeeotnpany
ing.liis victim to the latter' home when
the dread full act was commit'ed.
The murderer first ran lo the hou-e of
son ol hi tictim whom he told of hi
father's death, saying that a tramp bed
killed him. An inquest was held Satur
day morning but no satisfactory conclu
sion was reached at the lime, but subse
quently the following confession wa
worked out of the murderer:
"I had a bottle of w hisky and Wold
ridge bad a bottle of port wine when we
led N'eff' saloon," he said. "When
crossing the bridge we quarreled ever
the whisky, and the old man hit me with '
a thin stick, breaking the handle of my
basket. I got mad and bit hiui with a
stick I carried. It was as thick a my.
wrist. He struck me back, and then I
got behind him and hit him over the
head. He fell and I wentthrough his
pockets and took his money and then
pushed the body under the railing an J
into the gulch."
Defrauding a City.
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 2G The citjr
waa startled today by the arrest at &
o'clock of Mrs. Minnie B Yesler, Dt.
J. Eugene Jordan and Dr. H. Martin Van
Buren on the charge of stealing and con
cealing the will of the laie Henry L.
Yesler, the millionaire pioneer, and hus
band of the first-named prisoner. At
the same time facts in connection with
Mr. Yesler' hist days were brought to
light that throw a strong light on tha
circumstances leading up to the allcg. d
crime. The provisions of the miss-ii g
will were learned definitely today. It
was rend by Yesler to a frierd whom he
had selected for a witness at out three
months before his deuth, and wa wit
nessed by that gentleman, so that if an
other w ilue.-s knows its contents, it can
be proved and its provisions carried out,
even if it has been destroyed. The pro
visions of the missing will are Baid to be
substantially as follows: To Mrs Yerler
it bequeaths the building occupied by the
National Bank of Coninie'iv, a f nepieca
of property near Lake Washington,
000 with win -ii to build a vesidene-e on
it, and an annuity of 2HK1 for life. To
J. D. Lownian," it leaves the Yesler
building on Pioneer place, now nearly
completed, with its site All the le
niaimlerof the estate, alter the debts a e
paid, is left to the city of Seattle, wi'h
the provision that the old Yesler resi
dence is to be used as a public libraiy.
The city will thus acquire a magnificent
estate of nearly, if not quite, $1,000,01 0.
Has Preparod a New Treaty.
Washington, Jan. 29. The president

dition treaty with Sweden, recently
