EXPLOSION. KILLS 20.
Similar Accident in 1903 Killed 160
Union Pacific Coal Miners.
jjauna. Wyom.. March 28 — This camp -was vis
ited by another accident to-day, and twenty
ncn were killed by an explosion of gas In Mine
So. 1 of the Union Pacific Coal Company. The
ad include Alexander Briggs. superintendent
of the mine. AH the victims are married and
leave families. Special trains are arriving from
nearby raining towns with crews of miners and
£j-e fighters to assist in the work of rescue.
A fire has been raging below the tenth level
girce last. Saturday, and the force of two hun
dred miners had been laid off for the day. Su
perintendent Briggs. with three foremen and a
crew of sixteen or seventeen gam men and fire
fighters, went into the workings early this morn
le to fight the fire, which was rapidly eating
its way through the workings.
At ■"■ o'clock this morning the men above the
workings •*■■ startled by the port of a heavy
explosion which shook the earth and caused the
shaft building to totter. It was soon discovered
that both entries had caved in. mine timbers
having been blown completely out of the mine.
Although scores of miners are working heroi
re ; to open the shaft, no hope is entertained
that any of the men will be rescued alive. In
fact, it I" feared that the bodies of the victims
cannot be reached for many days. A similar
explosion in this mine in June, 1903. caused the
,-. .. of one hundred and sixty men.

PARSONS ATTACKS ODELL.
Gives Out Statement Reflecting on
Conduct When Governor.
Congressman Herbert Parsons, president of the
»w York county .ommitteo. hi a statement last
nieht attacked ex-Governor Odeirs attempt to ob
tain control of the Republican organization, and
pointed out that his opposition to Odelfs plans was
based solely upon the ex-Governor's record as
Btssa chairman and his connection with the
malodorous Ambler bill.
Mr. Parsons, after referring to OdtrU'n "policy"
toward hospitals and asylums, took up Odell's
claim ■gala* the Mercantile Trust Company and
the Ambler Mil repealing th . charter of the trust
company. The county committee president made
extracts from the insurance report draw- by Mr.
Hughes referring to Odell's influence in the Mer
cantile Trust affairs.
After giving out the statement Congressman
Parsons refused to make any comment, other than
that "the man who was attacked in that report,
from which 1 have quoted now claims that he
favors the nomination of the man who made the
report and whose investigations made it possible."
President Parson's statement follows:
The antagonisms aroused by Mr. ode]! within the
organisation when hf> was state chairman, and his
less of public confidence when Governor of the
state, «re matters that would make his restoration
to leadership an extremely dincorous experiment
Tor the party. Mr. OdelTs desertion of ex -Governor
Frank S. Btacfc In the contest for the Tinted States
Senator-ship was bitterly resented at the time by
many of the m««t taSuentla] men in the organiza
tion. Nor has this resentment subsided.
Mr. Odeii in hi« first term as Governor offended
a very lurce and important .lass of citizens inter
ested in charitable work. During his administra
tion he was constantly In conflict with these peo
ple. His policy toward the hospitals and asylums
was severely criticised by leading citizen? through
out the suite. Nor has lie since regained their
The settlement of Governor Odell's claim against
the Mercantile Trust Company growing out of his
pardnsine bariHn of the United States Ship Build
ing Company an-1 die Introduction of the notorious
Ambler i .ill rep-al'nir th« charter of the Mercantile
Trust Company were matters which lost him the
confidence of thousands of business m»n and on
which Governor Od^ll was examined before the
Insurance Investigating Committee by Mr. Hughes.
Mr Parsons then quoted frcn the report of
the investigating committee, t -s drawn by Mr.
Hvfjhea. hi which it was said that it was pub
licly charged that the object of the Ambler bill
was "to force the tru<=t company to settle a
claim of B. B. Odell. jr.. the Governor of the
state, which had arisen through his purchase of
bends of the United States Shipbuilding Com
pany, of which the Mercantile Trust Company
■ as trustee."
Mr. Hughes's report added that a settlement
was reached soon after, hut that Mr. Odell denied
that it had been brought about by threats. The
introduction of the bill, however, the report says,
may have been sufficient to induce a settlement.

XEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, SUNDAY MARCH _™ 190S
PERUNA EDITORIAL NO. 2.
Dr. Hartman has claimed for many yean that Perusa is en EXCELLENT
CATARRH REMEDY. Some of the doctor s critics have disputed the doctor?
claim as to the efficacy of Peruna.
Since the ingredients of Peruna are no longer a secret, what do the medi
cal authorities say concerning the remedies of which Peruna is composed?
Take, for instance, the ingredient HYDEASTIS CANADENSIS. OR
GOLDEN SrAX. i The United States Dispensatory says of this herbal remedy,
that it is largely employed in the treatment of depraved mucous membranes,
chronic rhinitis (nasal catarrh), atonic dyspepsia (catarrh of the stomach),
chronic intestinal catarrh, catarrhal jaundice (catp.rrh of the liver), and in
diseased mucous membranes of the pelvic organs. It is also recommended for
the treatment of various forms of diseases peculiar to v-oner..
Another ingredient of Peruna, COEYDALIS FOEKGSA, is classed in ths
United States Dispensatory as a tonic.
CEDBON SEEDS is another ingredient of Penma, an ezcellent drug that
has been very largely overlooked by tho medical profession for the past fifty
years. THE SEEDS ARE TO BE lOTJKD HI VE3Y FEW DRUG STORES.
Ths United States Dispensatory cays of the action of codron that it is used as
a bitter tcnic and in the treatment cf dysentery, and in intermittent diseases
as a SUBSTITUTE FOE QUININE
OIL OF COPAIBA, another ingredient of Peruna, is classed by the United
States Dispensatory as a mild stimulant and diuretic. It acts on the- stomach
and intestinal tract. It acts as a stimulant en the gsnito-urinary membranes.
Our Peruna Tablet
Is Peruna V/ith
(catarrh of the mucous surfaces of the mouth), follicnlar pharyngitis (catarrh
of the pharynx , chronic coryza (catarrh of the head). This writer classes
hydrastis as a stomachic tonic, useful in atonic dyspepsia (chronic gastric
catarrh), catarrh of the duodenum, catarrh of the gall duct, catarrh of tbs
intestines, catarrh of the kidneys (chronic Brigiit's disease), catarrh of tha
bladder, and catarrh of other pelvic organs.
BAHTHOLOW REGARDS COFAIEA as an excellent remedy for chronic
catarrh of the bladder, chronic.bronchitis (catarrh of the bronchial tubes).
BARTHOLOW STATES TEAT CUBEB, an ingredient of Peruna, pro
motes the appetite and digestion, increases the circulation of the bbod. "use
ful in chronic nasal catarrh, follicular pharyngitis (catarrh of the pharynx
increasing the tonicity of the mucous membranes of the throat. It also re
lieves hoarseness. Useful in atonic dyspepsia (catarrh of the stomach), and in
chronic catarrh of the color and rectum, catarrh of the bladder, prostatorrhe?,,
and chronic bronchial affections.
MILLSPAUGH, MEDICINAL PLANTS, one of the most authoritative
works on medicinal herbs in the English language, in commenting upon
COLLIKSONIA CANADENSIS, says that it acts on the pneumogastric and
vaso motor nerves. It increases the secretions of the mucous membranes in
general. In the mountains of Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Carolina,
collinsonia canadensis is considered a panacea for many disorders, including
headache, colic, cramp, dropsy and indigestion. DR. SCUDDER regards it
highly as a remedy in chronic diseases of the lungs, heart disease and asthma.
These citation* ought to be sufficient to show to any candid mind that Pe
runa is a catarrh remedy. Surely, such herbal remedies, that command the
enthusiastic confidence of the highest authorities obtainable, brought together
in proper combination, ought to make a catarrh remedy of the highest efficacy.
This is our claim, and we are able to substantiate thi3 claim by ampld
quotations from the HIGHEST MEDICAL AUTHORITIES IN THE WOEXP.
