DEATH CAME AT LAST.
James &. Blaine, Quietly Passed Away
END OF AN EVENTFUL, BUSY LIFE.
Brief of The Statesman's Career From
The Oradlc to The Grave. .
UIGHLI HONORED BY ALL NATIONS
Ills Obsequies Will ; be Observed In
Every Quarter of The Civilized
Washington, Jan. 27. Special The
long expected visitation of Death came
at last to the Blaine mansion at 11:3
this morning, and the noble heart of the
honored statesman ceased its pulsation.
"Blai ne is Dead,' Hashed the wires, and
the home of the patient sufferer is turned
to a house of mourning.
Tho end was peaceful, the dis
tinguished. patient passing from a state
of unconsciousness to 'death.' The an
nouncement did not create unusual sur
prise as it was generally felt that the
battle with death would end in defeat.
The family were all present at the bed
side. Ever since his return to Washing
ton for the winter- Mr. Blaine has been
doomed and to all intents dead for many
days. His mind has been a blank for
weeks, with few lucid moments.
The life of James G. Blaine is briefly
told in the following epitome :

KALEY BILL RECONSIDERED.
Thanks to Senator Butler "We May be
Salem, Jan. 27. Special. There is
considerable comment over the sensation
of the senate yesterday, in reconsidering
Raleys bill for a state portage railway at
the dalles of the Columbia. It was pro
posed by Senator Butler, and was secur
ed through the unanimous endorsement
of the democrats. The very astute sena
tor from Clackamas, Hayes by name,
put in a vigorous protest, charging that
the time of the senate was being taken
up . with a useless reconsideration of a
measure which had no possible show of pas
sage; and characterized the bill as more
in the interest of Idaho and Washington
than Oregon. Buthe reconsideration
prevailed, and the bill lies on the table
until a committee can be appointed to
investigate and report on the cost of con
structing the road.
. -Sai.em, Jan. -27. Special. The as
sembly adjourned until two p. m.' Mon
day, in respect to the memory of James
HEATH IN JOURNALISM.
Last of tho Old Virginia City Enterprise.
From the Spoknne Review.!
The oldest newspaper in Nevada, the
Virginia City Enterprise, has suspended
publication. For the past ten years it
has not paid expenses, having been kept
alive by the bonanza millionaires and
the bank of California. The death of
this pioneer paper will excite many pa
thetic memories of the breezy davs of
the '70s, when it was a power in the poli
tics of Nevada. Many a brilliant Pa
cific coast journalist began his life work
in the office of the Enterprise. Mark
Twain, Dan De Quille, Joaquin Miller
and others less known to fame took turns
at the work of making the paper one of
the most widely quoted in the United
States.- Twain did reportorial work for
the sheet, and once, during the absence
of the editor, undertook the work of fil
ling the editorial columns, which he de
clared to be the severest labor that it
had ever been his bad fortune to en
counter. One familiar with the eternal grind of
daily newspaper work can readily under
stand Twain's repugnance to the task.
Twain was naturally indolent; was
moved by fits and starts ; one day he was
brilliant, and the next his mind refused
to yield even to mediocrity. Pioneer
journalism can ' make room tor men of
this erratic nature, but as pioneer con
ditions pass away, and the tendency is
toward a hotter pace, the public requires
reliability rather than occasional bub
bling9 of wit and wisdom.
In this state Boheinianism made its
last stand during the boom period of ad
mission to statehood. Rich owners of
newspapers, possessed of more cash than
practical knowledge of the business,
sought out men to edit their sheets who
passed as. wits and brilliants in the pro
fession. Almost without exception
these Bohemians proved disappointing
and had to make way for newspaper
workers equipped with industry and
After all the newspaper is but the un
erring reflex of the social and industrial
conditions which surround it. If the
community is feverish and booming, the
paper indicates the feverish uess. If it
has worked down to the stable conditions
of progressive business life, its papers
show the change. If the moral tone of
the community be low, the newspapers
will reflect the laxity. The press, like
the pulpit, can not run far in advance of
its surroundings w ithout losing itself and
sacrificing its influence. It is difficult
to convince our ministerial brethren of
this, but the fact is none the less existent.

Little Rock, Jan. 26. Another state
treasury sensation came to litrht when
the newly created state debt board, of
which Governor Fishback is Dresident.
ordered the state treasury to hold $3,000
m coupons, presented for conversion
into bond scrip, lo be held as the nron-
erty of the state, it being evident that
the coupons have been stolen from the
state treasury. When thev were stolen
or by whom remains to be determined.
ine coupons have been sent to Judge
ICimballs, a prominent lawyer of this
city, by G. D. Whitless, of New London,
lxnu. ; but where the latter obtained
them is unknown. Nearly $50,000 of
these coupons are still" out, and the
whole has been stolen at some time from
the state treasury. Governor Fishback
has determined to sift the matter to the
Strikers Will Hold Out.
London, Jan. 26. At a conference

rates prevailing before the strike, and to
acept a five per cent, reduction in wages
upon the expiration of the quarter, if

tradition of enmity to the Pottawatto
mies, put on their war paint, went to
the latter's camp and attacked them
