A'igu?ta, Me. July 15 Mrs
Jaiues G BUina died at the Blaine
hom-tead here to lay. Mrs Blaine
was 76 years of age. From Wash
ington, a fhort tioie ago, she cam4
to the old family residence on State
street. She was in an enfeebled
condition, and hd been under al
most constant medical attantiou
eince. Duiing the past wek she
failed rapidly. Her condition was
due to a eeneial breaking down of
tha system. V
Mrs. Blaine's maiden name was
Harriet Sunwoad. When a young
womm she was a teaeber at a semi
nary for girls at Millersburg, Ky.,
and Mr. Blaine, who had just grad
unted from Washington College, at
Washington, Pa., in 1847 was a
teacher in the Western Military In
stitute, at the neighboring town of
Bine Lick Springs, They 1 became
acquainted soon after he went there
and witbi;, ft-w months they were
married . After a short residence
in Pennsylvania, tbey came to
Augusta in 1804, when Mr. Blaine
became part owner and editor of
the Kermsbeck Journal. Their
Jife from that4 time until Mr,
Blaine's death is a part of the na
tional history. Siuce that event
Mr. Biaine had lived in retirement.
Mrs. Bliine h survived by one
son, James G. Blaine, and two
daughters, Mrs. Harriet Beal and;
Mts. Walter Damrosch, of , New
York, who were at her bedside dur
ing her last sickness.

fully 1000 strikers who rode in

them. . .
Frequently the trucks would be
driven ahead, and block the way.
A half mile from the depot the
strikers seized six street cars and
after unmanning them, dragged
them-after the trucks. v

of the Barbaric punishments 'of
former tiuofS namely, castigation
with cudgels and cat-a'-nine tails,
chaining to the car, shaving . the

certain offenses on persons exiled to
penal pnlement, 6r to the mines.
Catigation with the cat o'-nine
tails and even with the cudgels not

one of the hareb forms of the death

placed in the new statute, says the
newspaper, by prolongation of

to 100 days with bread and water,
except every third day, when -hot
food will be served at one meal. ? j
Tne abvl.tion of the cudgel and J

prohibition of capital nunisbment
altogether. The revised statute of

with birch reeds uu to 100 blows

MAYOR S. TOMLINSON.
What Woodburn's Executive Thinks
ot the Famous Dr. Darrin.
Tnoe who think that DrDarrin,
me ramous specialist ana eieciric
physician does not perform cures
will have their doubts dispelled by
hearing what Hou. S. Lomlinson,
mayor of Woodburn. says , on the
A representative of tbelodeD&nd
ent called on mayor Tomlinson,
and in the course of an interview
with this prominent man secured
valuable information, although he
was very reluctant to go into print.
"Well," said Mayor Tomlinson,
"injl891 I bad sciatic rheumatism
and! malarial fever and was treated
by different physicians without
gaining relief. Dr. Darrin of Port
land, was then advertising .exten
sively and, like a man going to the
court of last resort, I went to him.
I was in a bad condition and unable
to do any work whatever. Before
the full course of Damn's treat
ment was over I returned home a
new man, and since that time have
not been placed in a position wnere
the services of a physician were
needed." - . '
That was eleven years ago. To
day Mayor Tomlinson is one of the
strongest men in the city, possesses
a physique that is the envy of his
fellow townsmen, and is well known
for his capacity for hard work.

AND DANGEROUSLY SHOT
V ONE IN STREET CAR
Took Place in the . Suburbs of
- Portland Six Masked Men
and Escaped Without
Porlland; July 15. With desper
ate daringan l wantonness supreme,
six massed men held up car JNo.
31 of the Oregon Water-Power &
Railway Compiny, at the Southern
Pacific crossing on Eist Eievenih,
near Division street, at 11:45 o'clock
last night, robbing the 40 passen
gersand shooting B. F. Day
through tbe back- with a 38-caltbre
revolver. Day will recover. . A re
ward of $500 has been offered by
Chief of Police Hunt. There is not
the slighest clew to the perpetrators
and no arreet3 have been made.
The ill-fated car with its load of
human freight left tbe city station
at the corner of First and Alder
streets at 11:20 o'clock. Conductor
Mittson and Motorman' Nye were
in charge. There were between 40
and 50 passergerr, including men,
women and child'rtn, many of them
returning to their homes from Ihe
opening of the Woodman's carnival.
The car sped along at a rapid rate
until the crossing of tbe Southern
Pacific, near Division etreef, was
reached, where a stop is always
made,-both for the crossing and for
the switch just b-ybnd. '.: ;
" Without warning, other than a
gruff command to stopthe car, Mo-
torman Nye was confronted with
two long-barreled six-shooters. The
front door .nd the vestibule doors
were closed but the men behind
the masks pushed the barrels of
their weapons through holes in the
gates, where they could back up
their threat to shoot unless their
instructions were -obeyed quickly.
At the reer Conductor Mattson was
confronted with the same condi
tionsand-the desperadoes had con
trol of the situation. Aside ffom
the four men at the front and rear
platforms, two others, masked and
heavily armed, stood guard outside,
where they could command a view
of the approaching, thoroughfares.
The coast having- been : cleared,
the robbers began their work. Age
or sex cut no figure with the ruffi
ans, as thay rifled the pockets of
every passenger, taking money and
valuables, except some which tney
overlooked in their harry to ' finish
their work. , , j -
At the outset the men seemed to
think that Day, the young man
who was shot, intended to escape.
One of tbem kept his revolver
pointed toward Day, and once ord
ered him to make room in the rear
door for the other masked man to
pacs through. Day turned with
his rack to the man who spoke, and
with an oath the robber placed the
revolver to Day's back and fired.
With 'a cry of pain the wounded
man tell to the floor. jbui, not
wavering for a moment in the face
of the terrible crime just perpetrat
ed, both highwaymen at the rear of
the car picked up their victim,
whose lifeblood was flowing from
tbe wound, searched bis pockets,
robbed him of three silver dollars,
and a gold. watch and chain valued
at $60. They then turned him ov
er to Conductor. Mattson, with in-N
structions to attend to; him on til
they completed their work of rob
bing their helpless victims
With quick dispatch, denoting
previous experience, one man
from each end of the car began to
search and rob passengers, and the
system was followed up until they
met halt way up the car. Alter
they were through with their des
perate work, they alighted from tbe
car, and ordered Motorman Nye to
proceed toward bellwood, which he
did.' One highwayman remained
on the fronf platform until the car
was going at almost lull speed, then
s wuug off, and, going .back, proba
bly joined his companions. lben
the desperadoes vanished as if into
thin air. , ; ' - ;
After turning the deeperate trick
of obbing right and left - on tbe
street car, the sextet of desperadoes
held up and robbed U. JN. imtner,
whom they, met - and passed down
Milwaukie street. He reported the
robbery to th&police shortly after
ward. He is positive there were
six in the party.' ; They, still wore
their masks when they beld him
It was impossible today to obtain
a complete list of the passengers on
the unfortunate, car, but from : all
that could be learned thetotal loss
to passengers and the company-will
not reach $500. From Conductor
Mattson the robbers took $9.35. .
- Day was operated on bytwo sur
geons shortly after 9 o'clock. They
found the bullet which entered the
right side of the bfck, about eight
inches, from the spine. It fractured
tbe 10th rib and lodged against tbe
Spinal column, traversing about 8
inches of fiesn and bone iu its course.
