is some ways from death yet, and,

active. He can be seen almost
any day at the United States ho
tel, where he has lived a bachelor's
life for nearly thirty years, in
quiet comfort, ocoupying two Hob-

_ To lie sure the most of his conver
sation during tho past eight years
has been upon the subject of letters
whieh Blaine wrote to him, bat the
reason for this is that everybody
who meets him always insists upon
talking upon that subject. But
Mulligan never tires of it—in foot
lie has to say about just so much
In reference to them every day or
else he doesn’t feel like himself.
His existence is mode somewhat
unhappy by the repeated visits of
correspondents and newspaper
men, who seek to interview him
and secure copies of the remaining
letters in his possession. He
manages, however, to keep them
at a distance and refuses to say
anything whatever upon the matter
to them. His daily mail Is volum
inous on the subjoot, but be never
snswers any of tbe inquiries.
Some of the letters be receives arc
or a threatening nature. Several
times he has been notified that lie
would bo waylaid and assaulted
when a good opportunity offered,
so that ua rarely remains out at
nights, and only when in company
with gentlemen upon whom he can
rely lor assistance and protection.
He hates Qen. Butler cordially,
but speaks well of Mr. Blaine, de
nominating him “a good lellow.”

Mulligan was tho confidential
bookkeeper of Jacob Btanwood, of
this city, in 1851. In 1885 ho was
employed by tho Adams sngsr re
finery company, in wbioh Warren
Fisher, Jr., was interested and to
whom Mulligan was a confidential
clork. J.stcr he was treasurer of
the Olobe theater. As before stat
ed, lie does little or nothing now,
His pleasures aro few. Ho loves
a good cigar, however, and de
lights to go to the theater. He
has a number of letters written, to
him and to Mr. Fisher, which tbe
auti-Blaino newspapers are eager
to got. They are said to be as
important ns those whieh have
been mado public. Enormous sums
of mouey bsvo been offered for
theso letters, but he refuses to sell
them. Qe has promised to give
them to a Boston paper for publi
cation shortly, as well as an inter
view, which will contain all be
knows about tbe matter.
Ho has nothing to worry him
but this, for bo is quite wealthy
and lives as he cares to upon his
income. Ho manages the estate,
leit by tlie senior Fisher si his
death and several others as well.
Fisher thought a great deal of
Mulligan, and appointed him a
trustee of his property. Mulligan
waa born in Dublin, is a devout
Cstholio and a patriolio Irishman.
In polities he is a demoorat.
Savannah News: The Central
railroad authorities have been in
vestigating the losses sustained by
the late boiler explosion rnd fire
nl tbe cotton compress at KuCaula.
The loss will be much less than
first reported, io hot not anything
like tho amount stated si tbe time.
It is estimated that the damage to
the property and the loss of cotton
by fire will not reach $80,000, and
a full adjustment of the damage
may bring that amount down to
$20,000. This mishap hat been
used, it Is said, by Interested
