Such Subsidy Would Create
TRADE FOLLOWS 'FLAG
It Would Enormously Increase
Baltimore, Hay 2S. The Merchant
Marine commission appointed by congress
and composed of members of that body,
for the purpose of making recommenda
tions for legislature in regard to the re
storation of American shipping met here
Bernard N. Baker, former president of
tho Atlantic transport company, spoke In
behalf of a ship subsidy, maintaining that
congress should make an appropriation
each, year for a number of years for the
upbuilding of American shipping. lie
further suggested that this should be
made subject to a contract being entered
into by public proposals so that no citi
zen or corporation would have any undue
advantage, under such a contract tho
owners of these ships would not bo al
lowed to transfer them to any foreign
flag for a period of twenty years, and
the ships would always be at the com
mand Of the government for transport
service. He declared that "trade would
follow the flag,'.', and the .subsidizing of
tho marine would enormously Increase the
export trade. Mr. Baker said that ho
believed the amount to be set aside year
ly by congress should be $10,000,000 per
annum, and that if this were done he be
lieved that in 10 years, 2,500,000 tons would
bo added to American shipping.
The next witness was Joseph F. Foard,
who opposed the general subsidy plan for
encouraging the building of ships as be
ing impracticable. Ho said that he would
recommend liberal mail contracts, amend-N
ed navigation laws and a builders or
owners bonus of 50 per cent in cash upon
tho commissioning of ships completed
within two years of the passage of the
act, and diminishing at the rate of 5
per cent per year down to nothing at the
end of ten years.

The news in the foreign dispatches has
produced the usual crop of sensational

reported captured was unavoidablotnd is
confined to those mounted in tho works
on the hills below Kin Chou. as they
could not be carried away when tho
Russians retired, hut th6 brcch blocks,
he added, probably had been removed.
Besides, bofore the enemy could use the
guns against Port Arthur, they would
have to manufacture special cartridges.
Therefore the loss was not so serious a
matter. The1 Important thing to ascer
tain was whether the Japanese had cap
tured any field guns. The same ofllcor
said tho works at Kin Chou had been
hastily constructed and were no criterion
of tho works at Port Arthur, which could
not be flanked, where the forts were
scientifically directed and connected to
support each other.
"If the Japanese lost 3,000 men in tak
ing Kin Chou," the officer added, "they
will be compelled to lose 30,001 men at
least if they try to take Port Arthur.
Even with such a sacrifice, I consider

A Warning to Thousands to Use
Pe-ru-na Alone for all
Mr. Andrew Cooper, Water Street.
Menasha, Wis., President of Menasha
Horticultural Society and Member of
Ancient Order of United Workmen,
"I suffered with kidney trouble for a
number of years and doctored until I
became sick and tired of medicine. I
was discouraged and thought there was
no help for me. One of the members of
our lodge told me that he had been tak
ing Perhna, and it had done him so
much good that he thought it would
help me, so I bought a bottle on my way
home. I took it -for a couple of weeks
before I noticed any change for tho bet
ter, but my improvement was very fast
after that, and in a. little while I was
feeling so much better that I could go
to work again. I used Peruna for four
months and was rid of all kidney trou
ble, the pains In the back were all gone,
and I f?lt much better all around."
Some people do not seem to understand
that there is any such disease as catarrh
of the kidneys. Diuretics only aggravate
tho kidneys. Peruna Is- not a diuretic.
Peruna is a catarrh remedy. This ex
plains why it is that Peruna cures a great
number of kidney diseases ln which the
usual remedies fail.
It Is worse than useless to prescribe
diuretics for catarrh of tho kidneys.
Such remedies only Irritate and make
matters worse. Peruna cures such cases
promptly and permanently. Peruna
cures catarrlr wherever it lurk in the
system, whether of the, head, nose,
throat, lungs, stomach, kidneys, Ijver
or pelvic organs.

"Exposuro and neglected colds caused
kidney trouble which I tried in vain to
cure with many so-called kidney reme
dies. Quito by accident I began to use
Peruna to cure a cold, and to my surprise
I found that the pain in my back and
sido was being relieved and so I con
tinued tho use of Peruna for several
months. I then found it had cured mo
of the kidney trouble and slnco then I

TREATED WITH COURTESY.
Seoul, Korea, May 2S 2 p. m. Edwin
V. Morgan, the United States consul at
Aort Dalny, who arrived here yesterday,
is the first American official to Journey
irom j.-u fcan to Seoul overland. The
trip too., ten days. Mr. Morgan says
that, contrary to the stories which are
constantly circulated in Seoul to the cf.
feet that the bandits are active in this
section, he found the country people to
be quiet, content and peaceably pursuing
their agricultural vocations. There is
promise of good crops.
There are many Japanese small traders
along tne railroad lino as far as Taiku,
but none north of that point.
As far north as Shoken, 56 miles from
Fusan, tho railroad is new and well built
and the trains run smoothly. The 3S
miles of tho road to Mltsuyo are open
to regular passenger traffic. The U
miles to Soldo are traversed only by
construction trains. This section has
stone and iron bridges, the culverts are
faced with masonry and the cuttings
are complete. On the last section of the
line to Shoken the bridges aro not yet
imished. The 4.000 foot tunnel south of
-.-.u Is not completed, A switchback
is being built to Croso Hill. The en
gineers In charge of the construction
wont hope to connect with the branch
being built south from Seoul by the end
of this year.
Leaving tho railroad at Tallsa Mr. Mor
gan followed the main Japanese telegraph
line to Seoul. The telegraph line is pa
trol led' dally by bodies of from 12 to 20
gendarmes, who are stationed at Inter
vals of thirty miles.
Mr. Morgan was treated with great
courtesy by the Japanese officials.

Relief Corps, No. 37, writes:
"About a year ago I caught a severe cold which settled in my kid
neys, causing backache and intense pains, so much so that I was not
able to be up all the time. The doctor said that I had catarrh of the
kidneys and prescribed a course of treatment for me, but after using It
for a month and deriving no benefit I decided to take Peruna. 1 cer
tainly have cause to be thankful to you for the good it did me. In a

Hill commenced at 2:33 a. m. of the 23th.
The enemy's defensive works were almost

sisted of fifty guns of various caliHrcs
and two quick-firing field companies.
Their Infantry ranged In two or three
lines. In covered trenches, with loopholes,
and placed machine guns on Important
points and offered a stubborn resistance.
We ranged 'all our field guns upon the
forts and tho enemy's principal artil

while quick tlrers previously retired to
Nan Kwang continued firing until night
our artillery concentrated fire upon the
enemy's trenches and our Infantry forces
advanced within 400 or SCO meters from
tho enemy's position, but the wire en
tanglements and mines lay before ub and
the enemy's Infantry and the machine
guns, which yet remained unabated kept
up. Finally our Infantry forces ap
proached within 200 meters from the cn
emys position anfl tried several charges,
but they still proved unscccesaful, of
ficers and men all falling within twenty
or thirty meters from the enemy's posi
tion. Thereupon our artillery began a j
heavy firing and in th evening, during
tho severest cannonading, the last charge
was made and, a breach was opened with
great difficulty, through which we galnd
the whole height. exp?lled the enemy and
captured all the guns on tho forts.

attack was the discovery of a mine wire
