James G. Blaine Quietly Passas

Ones FlaKP Displayed at
Washington, D. C. Jan. 27 -James
Gillespie Hlaine died at II o'clock
this morning. The immediate cause
of death was exhaustion. The dis
ease which brought about his end
was u chronic affliction of the kid
neys, complicated with resulting
ailments. Death came without
Mr. Hlaine was conscious to the
las. About his bedside at the
moment of dissolution were Mrs.
lilaine, Mrs. Damroasch, Miss Hat

sister-in-law, Miss Abigail Dodge,
the physicians, Drs. Hyatt and

ing away, however, while silent'
was conscious, and was marked b
a final scene which gave proof of
his faith in God and heaven. The
scene was one to which some great
artist may at some future day give
Surrounded by the members of,
his family and his faithful physi
cians, Mr Hlaine lay inert helpless
tin still. He knew that death was
at hand. All those about his bed
side put aside the last hope. The
physicians whispered warning that
the fluttering heart could beat but
a few minutes more. The very
shadow of death had cast its gray
pallor upon Jthe recumbent figure.
Then Mrs. Hluins eyes meeting
the last fixed gane of her dying
husband, leaned over the bedside
and whispered the question:
"James, do you know where Wal
ker, Kinmons and Alice are'r"
There was immediate response, a
new light flared into the almost
sightlass eyes, a tremor ran throng
the wasted form. The tighX arm,
after a second's struggle, rose from
the bed cover. The white, almost
pulseless hand closed itself, with
thelong.bony index finger extended
It pointed toward heaveu, and the
eyes gave the airswer of his soul to
the question of his wife.
Thus with hand outstretched to
heaven, and with eyes fixed upon
those of bin wife, James G. Hlaine
Mr. Hlaine's death at last came

doned, that when the end came it
would probably occur with at least
among many perplexingand contra
dictory statements' has been verified
by facts. The approach of death was
made evident to the family fully t ao
hours before its actual occurrence
It was between it and I0o' clock
this morning when the first
dangerous symptoms were ol
served. The family had taken their
breakfast and tin- trained nurse,
Mrs. Trice, had gone down for her
breakfast also, leaving the patient
temporai ilyalone. James G. Hlaine
jr., had on his hat and coat prepara
tory to starting olT for his daj's
duties in the office of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad company, where he
is employed,. when his mother sug
gested to him that it would be bet
ter to wait until the nurse came
up. He promptly acquiesced. Mr.
Hlaine had passed a restless night
mm ' '$s&&
and had been pronounced "no
worse," even by bis cautious physi
cians. Hut beyond a perceptible
increase of the I. ingiiar which had
marked his condition during the
past few days, there was no very
alarming change to be no'ed.
Following the president's visit in
quick succession came the mem
bers of the cabinet. Then one alter
another in a constant stream the
most prominent people in official
life called and left words of condol
ence. Returning from the visit to the
house of death, President Harri
son issued a proclamation to the
people of the 1'nited States an
nouncing the death, giving a brief
resume of the public career of the
great illustrious statesman and pay
ing a tribune to his patriotism,
which had won for him the grati
tude and affection of his country
men had the admiration of the
world, and directing that on the
day of the funeral all the executive
departments at Washington be
closed, and on all public buildings
throughout the United States the
national Hag be displayed in half
staff, and for a period of thirty days
the department of Slate be draped
Secretary Foster issued an order
closing the state department.
The senate and house adjourned
as a mark of respect to Mr. Hlaine
without transacting any business.
The funeral arrangements, so far
as decided, are that services will be
held on Monday afternoon and the
remains interred here at least tem
gorarily. It is not yet decided
whether the funeral will be public
President Harrison said that the
news of Mr. Hlaine's death has
been made a very profound impres
sion upon him. While recognizing
the fact from the statements of the
physicians and members of the
family that ultimate recovery in
Mr. Hlaine's case was improbable,
he was still whooiy unprepared for
it at this time, and the announce
ment had been a great shock to him
He felt unable, under the circum
stances, to enter upon the members
of this cabinet, most of whom had
been associated with Mr. Hlaine in
the ofllcial family relations, and,
therefore, after the expression of
regret and sorrow at the loss sus
tained by themselves and the coun
try in Mr. Hlaine's death, the meet
ing of the cabinet was adjourned.
Associates of Mr. Hlaine paid the
following tributes of affect ion and
esteem of his memory:
Secretary of State Foster-Other
of his friends were more competent
to speak of Mr. Hlaine's service and
genius in congress, in politics and
in literature. In diplomacy his
chief characteristic was his exhalt
ed Americanism. He was a through
believer in the Monroe doctrine,
and the reciprocity policy, which
distinguished the close of his pub
lic career, was an outgrowth of his
convictions respecting that doc
trine. His dislomatic correspon
dence will rank among the best of
his political productions. His repu
tation abroad will mainly rest upon
his acts as secretary of state. In
the past ten years, at least, he has
been the best known American
in foreign lands.
Secretary Rusk I have no hesi
tation in saying that in many re
pects Mr. Hlaine outranks any of
his contemporaries and has wiel
ded a greater influence in shaping
the fortune of the republic. One
of the qualities I have always es-
teemed the most highly in James
G, Hlaine was his sturdy, unswerv
Aniericaiisim. He will always be
one of the conspicious figures in
the political history of the country.
His death, while not unexpected,
will be a great shock to the people
of the whole nation, irrespective of
their political sentiments.
Secretary of the Treasury Foster
Mr, Hlaine's career has been one
of the leadership, and, without
doubt, he possessed to a greater
degree the confidence, respect ami
alfection of the vast majority of the
American people than any other
nan of his time. His fame is world
wide. His personal popularity and
his hold upon the popular affection
was not confined to his own party,
his death will be sincerely mourn

THE SPECIAL MESSAGE.
Tho Attention of the Legisla
WANT IT INVESTIGATED.
Governor Crounse Spreads a Few
Facts Bc-tore the Legislature
Concerning the Defunct
Governor Crounse submitted the
following special message to the
house Mid senate:
State ok Nkiikaska F.xixttivk
Dki'Aktmknt.-Lincoln, Jan. '.in,
ISU. To the Honorable, the House
of Representatives, of the stai of
Nebraska: I deem it my duty to
submit for your consideration such
facts and information as I am
possessed concerning the recent
failureof the Capital National bank
at Lincoln, which is rt depository
lor more than two hundred thous
and dollars of state funds.
As I am advised, the late state
treasurer, J. K. Hill, made a trans
fer of the funds in his custody to
his successor, the present incum
bent, on the Itth day of January,
1WII. These funds included certifi
cates of deposit from the Capital
National bank at Lincoln, one for
!f;if),:r7.H,'i, bearing date January 0,
IN'.H; one for SfllKLtXK) bearing date of
January (ilh 1S'.I3, one for Sfl.TO.OlHi,
bearing date January tith, WX
These certificates were turned
over to Treasurer Hartly as rep
resenting f2Mli,:OTX state money.
I'lider the act of April 8, ISM, the
state treasurer is required to de
posit the amount of money in his
hands belonging to the several cur
rent funds in the state treasurer in
the state or national banks, or some
of them doing business in the state
and of approved standing, the
bank to pay as interest on such de
posit not less than 3 per cent cen
tum per annum. To Secure such
deposits a bond is required of de
positors in double of the amount
of any deptsit, which bond i.i to be
approved by the governor, attorney
general and secretaay of the state.
In conformity with the law the Cap
ital National bank presented a bond
in the sum of $70 ),()IK), which would
entitle it to aggregate deposits of
$lT(),tXH). This bond, drawn in ac
cordance with the act referred to
bearing the signature of the bank
ami that of C. V. Mosher and R. C.
Outcalt, and approved by the attor
ney general and secretary of state,
presented to me on the 14th day of
January, lS'.Cl, by the secretary of
state for my approval.
In order to satisfy myself of the
sufficiency of the bond I interro
gated Mr. Secretary Allen quite
full) concerning the financial
standing of the bank.
Mr Allen exprn-sed no doubt of
the absolute solvency of the con
cern, and I am assured that Treas
urcr Hartley after full and careful
inquiry and examination into its
standing had reached a like con
elusion. Still, although not required
by the law referred to, or by the
form set out in the act, and not
withstanding the approval of the
bond by the attorney general and
by the secretary of state, I decided
as an additional preciltiou to exact
of Mr. Mosher and Mr Outcalt an
oath to their individual ability as
suerties, and they qualified accord
ingly in the amounts of If.'KKNKIand
Ir'iOO.lKMI respectively. After they
had complied with this demand I
did not feel justified in further
withholding my approval.
The lirst intimation I had uf (
insolvency of the bank or id
surities was after the bank
passed into the hands of a 1
States bank examiner r.n t
day of January. WW. Sim

not be great ultimately.
It remains for the L-gNlature to
take such action as it deem best to
ascertain the exaet euinlitn.n of ihf
bank and to fix the responsibility
of the panics invoked in the trans
action. It is open question
whether the bon dman oi ex-Treas-urer
Hill were released when he
paid over to hi- successor the
fraudulent certificates id deposit,
and whether the new treasurer as.

of his acceptance of the same. It
is also incumbent upon you to di
rect your investigations into all the
transactions between the Mate
officers and the officer" of the su
pended bank, and fix the cupability
if any, where it belongs.
