AFTER THE RATTLK.
PhiiiAPEIiPMA, Nov. 25. Tho
Times lias two columns of Augusta
specials on Blaine's home life. They
declare positively that Blaine tlidiiot
want tlie presidential nomination.
This is attested by his neighbors. It
opptessed him more than most peo
ple will ever be able to understand.
He almost faltreed in the presenco of
the great responsibility thrust upon
him. He had not expected that the
use of his name in tho convention,
which he had permitted in order to
defeat Edmunds aud Arthur, could
result in his nomination. Instead of
controlling tho convention for some
one else, as he had anticipated, that
body controlled itself for him, and he
found himself with a jewel that he
did not want
In a few days Blaine's family will
go to Washington for the winter, aim
ply following his rule of the last
twenty years. Thero they will follow
their customary habits of life, and re
ceive and be received as though they
had suffered no disappointments.
People who expect to find him sour
and ill tempered after this defeat,
have reckoned without their host.
The other class who thought ho would
weaken and decline in health, if he
failed to reach the presidency, may be
prepared to see the same fresh, breezy
man as when he was on the higher
wave of public favor. He intends to
remain in public view, and it is more
than Likely that he will accept a seat
iu congress after his literary task has
been completed. Either Senator Hale
or Congressman Millikan would re
tire to give place to Blaine, and in re
turn Halo could become governor.
Fryc would not yield unless com
pelled to.and it would have kept Blaine
busy to beat him if he tried. Thero
is a general feeling that the matter
can be arranged to accommodate all
The Times' special says that
Blaine's antagonism to Edmunds
and Arthur grows out of the latter's
reflection upon his South American
policy, and his efforts to get Conk
ling returned to the senate after ho
had. resigned. He had hoped to bo
secretary of state with Arthur's suc
cessor. Edmunds helped to take a
part of Xew England from him, twice,
when Blaine had been within a shad
ow of the nomination of the presi
dency. The Scourge In the South.
Lynchbuhg, Va., Nov. 25. Tho
following is from a well-known
preacher in tho southwest of Virginia:
"Latest advices concerning tho epi
demic in "Wise, Lee, Dickinson and
Buchanan counties are heartrending.
On Guest's river, "Wise county, with
in a radius of four miles, are thirty
cases of disease. In one instance a
father, mother and six children died.
Many persons die for want of atten
tion. Business is suspended, all be
ing concerned with sick and dying.
Six persons were buried in one grave
yard in one day. Tho disease is as
suming a milder form in some
localities. Not less than 175 of the
best citizens of "Wise county alone
have died during tho last few days.
The disease has made its appearance
in Lee county, and several deaths
have occurred. More worthy people
never called more loudly for relief
than these. They need nurses, med
icines and a committee of intelligent
physicians to diagnose the disease
and stop its terrible march."
Always on the Whipped Side.
It is reported on the best of author
ity that an old farmer residing near
Brownsville, this county, called his
three grown sons together on the
morning of election day and spoke as
follews: "Now, boys, ever sinco you
have been of age you voted the Dem
ocratic ticket All my life I voted
the Democratic ticket. For twenty
four years I have been licked on the
presidential question, and every time
you voted for president you were also
whipped. Now, I am 80 years of age,
and this no doubtwill be my last
vote at a presidential election. Now,
if it suits you, and in your eyes is
good, suppose all four of us vote the
Bepublican ticket, and so instead of
being again licked, why, wo will be at
last on the winning side. I would
like to have the satisfaction of being
on the big heap at my last vote any
how." The sons to humor tho old
man, agreed to his proposition, and
that township made a gain of eight
votes for Blaine. At last accounts
the old man was extremely down
hearted. Reading Eagle.
Scott's Emulsion of Pare Codldver
OH, with HypophonphlteM.
Very Palatable and Efficacious in
Trusting Diseases. Dr. C. T. Broem
sek. Jlochebter, N. Y.. says: "After
having used Scott's Emulsion with de
emed benefit upon myself, I have-taken
great pleasure in recommending it since
in the various conditions of wasting in
which it is indicated."
New Yoek, Nov.25 A special from
"Washington says: There are two
views among Democrats a3 to wheth
er Hendricks is going to be some
thing more than former vice-presidents
have been. Democrats coming
from the west and south especially
have this impression, on account of
Hendricks'experience and Cleveland's
inexperience, and they look to the
former as the proper cabinet-maker.

Completion of thp Oregon Short Line.
Huntington, Nov. 25. About 300
people gathered at the junction of
the Oregon Short Lino and the O. B,
& N. this afternoon, with fine weather
and a clear sky. At 3:30 Henry B.
Thielsen, chief engineer of the O. B.
&N., set the spike, and E. 0. Sraeed,
assistant chief engineer of tho Union
Pacific railway, struck the first blow,
after which Dr. Keene, H. S. Kowe,
B. M. Steel, Senator Slater and others
drove it home. Three cheers were
given for the Oregon Short Lino and
thruo more for tho O. B. & N.
The train ran down over the
gap to the Snake river bridge,
built of steel and a magnificent
structure, after which all started
back to Portland. The first passen
gers through for the east by this line
were Senator James H. Slater and
daughter, Jasper Baboook and J. M.
Goodwin. The Salt Lake road is
fully ballasted from Huntington to
"Weiser, and they expect to make good
time. There was fine weather all day,
and everybody is in good spirits.
Tho O. B. & N. road from Umatilla
to Huntington is undoubtedly the
best constructed line of new track on
the Pacific coast if not in the United
States. Through freight will be re
ceived at Portland and Omaha, com
mencing to-morrow. Passenger ser
vice will be inaugurated Monday,
Curious Technicality in West Virginia.
New York, Nov. 25. It is said a
curious technicality has arisen in
West Virginia, which may change tho
state government and possibly give
the electoral voto of the state to
Blaine. At the October election a
constitutional amendment was adopt
ed, changing the election of state offi
cers from October to November. A
number of prohibitionists immedi
ately put a ticket for state officers in
the field. It also bore the names of
the Bepublican presidential electors,
and in the fourth district the name
of the Bepublican candidate for con
gress. At the November election
about 15,000 of these votes were cast
and 500 in the Fourth district These
were thrown ont, electing the Demo
cratic candidate by 104 majority.. A
recount is called for, which it is said
will elect the Bepnblican congres
sional candidate and probably tho
Bepnblican electoral ticket.
The Pursuit of Binder.
Up to a late hour '"this morning
nothing had been heard of John
Binder, the man who shot Hans
Boch at Albina last Sunday morning.
Sheriff Jordan went to The Dalles
on Tuesday in response to a tele
gram from Sheriff Crossin there, who
had arrested a man who answered
Binder's description. Sheriff Jordan
was expected back last night, but up
to 1 o'clock this morning had failed
to put in an appearance. Boch,
Binder's victim, was resting a little
easier yesterday, but the chances of
his ultimate recovery are exceedingly
slim. News, 26th.
