NEW YoftK, April 2U:—The Herald's Washington correspondent sends this to his paper: "Blaine is not a candidate: he is out." This was the emphatic declaration made to me to-day hy Senator Eugene Hale of Maine with the express understanding that, it might be made public as coming from him. Senator Hale says that the Maine delegation will be for Harrison. He does not seem to have heard of ex- Speaker Uoid as a presidential candidate or even as a dclegate-at-lnrgc to Minneapolis. "For whom will the Maine delegation vote'."' I asked. "For Harrison, without a doubt," was the reply. "When Blaine wrote his letter of declination he meant it. He has abandoned all presidential ambitions. His health would not permit him to accept the nomination." AliHHourt Republican*. KANSAS CITY, April 20.—The Star's Jefferson City, Mo., special says: There is a very small advance guard to clear the decks for the Republican state convention that meets here to-morrow. Geo. Adin Guitar, of Hoone, and.lim Moore, of Laclede, were the only well known Republicans in town to-day. A great deal more interest is shown in the selection of delegates to Minneapolis than in the nomination of candidates for state offices, and the fight in the convention will be over the delegate-at-large. The Republican congressional convention of the Eighth district is in session here this afternoon. W. Q. Dullmeyer, of Jefferson City can have the nomination for congress if he wants it. lie made the race against island once before. this morning, on motion of Sayres, of Texas, the senate amendments to the urgent deficiency appropriation bill were non-concurred in. A conference committee was appointed. William Astor Dead. NEW YOHK, April 2ft.—A special to the Evening World from Paris states that William Astor died last night at the Hotel Liverpool. The cause was heart failure. Mr. Astor was father of Mrs, J. Coleman Drayton and was. greatly worried over the Borrowe-Fox- Mllbanlt scandal, in which she was involved. Next to his nephew, William Waldorf Astor and probably Jay Oould, William Astor was the richest citizen of America. His wealth was recently estimated at between 85<>,000,000" and 8(10,000,000, the greater part of which is invested in Now York real estate. Wm. Astor, who during' the life of his father was completely overshadowed by him, has always been more or less in the background so far as public prominence is concerned. He was only recognized by the reflected life of his wife, who since the death of Mr. John Jacob Astor, several years before that of her husband, has been the acknowledged leader of New York fashionable society. For many years the influence of Mrs. Wm. Astor in society matters lias been all powerful and she has in fact been the sole arbiter of the fate of those who have sought to gain admittance to the inner circleor "creme de la cremc,'' as Ward McAllister calls it. Her predecessor had been Mrs. John Jacob Astor, her sister-in-law and after her death U was natural that she should assume the sceptre, the wife of William Waldorf Astor not being recognized hv her as entitled to take the lead. 32-jnch Fancy China H£ a praperySilk, Genuine Shanghai Pongee, wash silk, Bl'k and cream pure Japanese Habutai wash silk, from 75c to ^32-inch plain China ^$uk, all colors, 24-in Monarch Faille Silk, black, wear guaranteed, 1 P.MARTIN & CO.

Taubeneck, chairman of the national Peoples' Party central committee, opposing fusion in any of the Alliance states. A Belligerent Congressman * WASHINGTON, April 20.—"You area liar," said Representative Enloe, after Commissioner Raum had denied stating to Mr. Enloe something that Enloe insisted the commissioner had said to him during the proceedings of the pension office investigating committee today, and with the utterance of these words he sprang towards the commissioner, who was seated just across the table, to do Raum physical violence. Commissioner Raum hastily got on his feet and prepared for the attack. The members forcibly restrained Enloe and there was a scene of disorder, Mr. Enloe endeavoring to break away. Commissioner Raum was excited and exclaimed that he wanted no personal difficulty, but feared no man, which caused a renewal of Mr. Enloe's attempt to get. at him. The commissioner in a moment picked up his hat and left the room, while his colleagues finally (succeeded in partly calming the prosecutor and getting him to talfS his seat.

PAWS', April 20.—To state that the explosion last night at the cafe of M. Very, at the corner of Boulevard Magenta, and Rue Lancey, has caused a feeling of consternation in this city is to put it very mildly. The truth is that the people of Paris are panic stricken at the audacity of the anarchists. The Gaulois and Malin this morning openly reproach the government with incompetency and demand that something be done, and done immediately, to put an end to the outrages. So strong is the. feeling of fear that many residents of the city and foreign visitors are leaving or making hurried preparations to leave. The scene in the vicinity of the expjo- sion surpasses description. Throughout the night and morning excited crowds, sometimes numbering 20,000, filled the streets and surrounded the wrecked restaurant. The affair was discussed in loud and angry voices and everybody joined in condemning the outrage. The police were utterly powerless to keep the crowds back. People in the vicinity of the cafe are in a state of terror, and many of tjiem are already making preparations to change their places of abode. They are particularly bitter in their denunciations of the inefficiency of the police, as it was generally known that the strictest precautions were taken to prevent what has just occurred at the cafe. At the time of the explosion, there were eleven persons in the restaurant, including three workingmen, who were slightly bruised. Several arrests were made but all suspects were released, as there was no evidence on which to hold them. The report that M. Very had died from the effects of his injuries is incorrect. It is said at the hospital to-day that it is thought his recovery is possible. His wife and daughter Jeanne were badly burned about their faces, but it is not thought that their condition is serious though they are suffering greatly from the shock. Paul Hammond, a printer who was in the restaurant at the time of the explosion, is horribly wounded in various parts of his body. His condition is critical. Another printer named (laudin Roger was severely burned. The other injured persons are progressing toward recovery. AiuirchlNtg on Trial. P .Mtis, April 20.—The trial of Riivu- chol. alias a half dozen other names, • and the girl Rosalie Soubcrbe, began yesterday at the Seine assizes court. So many threats have been made that the friends of the prisoners would attempt some desparate act to either free the accused or prevent their trial that admission to the court room was severely restricted. Only those personally known to the court officials and twenty-two witnesses were admitted. The main points of the indictment have already been sent in these dispatches. The prisoners are charged with causing the explosion at the residenceof Judge Benoit, No. 130 Boulevard St. Germain and at the residence of Public Prosecutor Bulot, at the corner of Rue Clichy and Rue De Berlin. They are also charged with attempting to blow up the police commissary at Clichy. The^indictment recites at great length all the facts in connection with these outrages and shows plainly the prisoners' connection with them. The most elaborate precautions were taken by the authorities to guard against any attempt to interfere with the course of justice. The guards about tho pal- de justice were redoubled and every part of the approaches to tho building closely watched. When Judge Guis entered he at once summoned the jury, who it must Be said, presented a greatly disturbed appearance. The threats of the friends of the prisoners haye evidently greatly frightened the jurors. The explosion of last night, no doubt, had much to do with the very apparent unwillingness of the jurors to serve in this case, for that is taken to prove that the police will not be able to protect the jurors after the trial is finished. After the jurors had taken their places the prisoners, headed by Ravachol, were brought in. They were guarded by an immense number of police. The trial then began. When the reading of the indictment was concluded, Judge Gucs examined Ravachol concerning the murders which it is charged ho has committed and also concerning the explosions. Ravachol in a manner admitted his guilt and took upon himself the entire responsibility for the Boulevard St. Germain and Rue Clichy explosions. Simon was next examined, but no new revelations were obtained from him, He admitted his complicity in tho outrages. Chuumartln said when questioned that Ravachol stole from Soissy the cartridges which he ... tended to use in blowing up the palace of justice. The other two prisoners tried to ex culpate themselves. Witnesses were then called and their testimony corroborated all'tlie details of tho crime as set forth in the indictment. PAKIS, April 20.—A dynamite cartridge was discovered in the sewer at St. Etienne to-day. A VITAL QUESTION. Hurglary at Sallna.

J., April 20.—Did the Rev. William J. Stewart, paBtor of the Sanctuary M: E. church, remain iu the edifice with Miss Eva Owens, a member of his flock, after the prayer meeting on a recent evening, and if so, what did he stay there for? These are tho pregnant questions concerning which a court of leading di- vincB willsit in judgment in the course of a few days. The tale bearer in the case is Mrs. Peace, a member of the congration, whose house adjoins the church. According to this lady, on the night in question she saw Miss Owens leave the church by the back door some time after the lights had been put out, and a little while after the preacher left by the front door. The couple, she claims, must have been together In the sacred edifice for over an hour. Dr. Stewart denies that tho young lady in the case was there at all, and says that he remained late because he acted as janitor owing to the 'illness of that employe. Miss Owens claims to be able to prove that she walked home from the prayer meeting with a number of ladies. She is extremely handsome, has always borne an irreproachable character 'and moves in good society, her father- being a trustee of the church and a wealthy merchant. Mrs. Peace has dragged her husband, who is a retired banker, into the affair. It issuid'that he will testify supporting her statements. Dr. Stewart is one of the best known Methodist ministers in New Jersey, and always stood very high in that denomination. Cardinal Manning's Unwilling Successor. NEW YOKK, April 26.—A London dispatch says: .The.. Roy. Dr. Horbert Vaugh, who was recently chosen to succeed Cardinal Manning as archbishop of Westminister.'hastuadean appeal to the council of the propaganda for permission to remain in his present position, that of bishop of Solford, on the ground thuthe mistrusts his ability to carry on the various works instituted, with success by the late cardinal. A reply has been returned, however, that tho petition cannot be complied with, and that the appointment must stand. In this action tho council of the propaganda has followed the established precedent. A similar case occurred but a few mouths ago. when the recently consccated bishop of La Crosse, Wis.; requested " permission to deny the appointment, in order that he might remain with the Catholic university at Washington. In this case also the request was refused. Alarrlagc Hells, NEW Yoniv, April 20.—The marriage of Leon Abbott, J r., son of Governor Leon Abbett of New Jersey, and Miss Lillian Hall, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas R.

A rope was drawn about one side of the building and outside of this none are allowed to go except by permission of the post commandant and in the company of some officer on business which had been stated. The same fare is provided for all, although tho stock party will get better food as they pay for it and have it shipped from town. Some of the party looked quite bad. This Is particularly true of W.
