As was told exclusively in The Star last,
night, the residents and property owners in
the vicinity of the District's street clean

N and O and 9th and 10th streets north
west, are up in arms at the noise And
nuisance said to be caused at the stable,
and many protests have been filed with
the Commissioners, asking that the al
leged nuisance be abated. Several of the
persons in that neighborhood say nothing
has been done In this respect, and that
unless the Commissioners take some no
tice of their complaints they will ente?
suit. They say the conduct of the drivers
of the wagons and the laborers and the
various other nuisances are almost Intol
The Commissioners and Supt. Two
hey of the street cleaning department
say that everything is being done to re
duce the objectionable features of the sta

that neighbors have been annoyed.
Mr Twohev said that the men employed
at the ma Die have been ordered to make
as little noise as possible*and to refrain
from vulgarity and profanity, and that the
superintendent of the stable has been or
dered to Bee that these commands are
"Of course," said Mr. Twohey, "it is
impossible to operate the stable without
making some noise, and considering the
class of the men employed as drivers and
laborers It is not surprising that they talk
loud and use profanity, but in every in

DEMOCRATS AT FEAST
ANTI-BRYAN TALK AT GOTHAM
JACKSON DAT BANQUET.
NEW YORK. January 9.?In an address
on "Why is 'the democratic party divid
ed?" Morgan J. O'Brien, ex-justlce of the
New York supreme court, said at the
National Democratic Club's Jackson day
dinner last night that if th# causes that
have divided the party were summarized
it would be found "that they have been
due to our failure to stand llrmly for
democratic principles, to a preference
shown by some for popular drifting senti
ment as contrasted with sound doctrine,
and to a preference for men rather than
a reverence for party traditions."
The dinner was the first of a. series at
which national and local democratic issues
will be discussed, with an intention to
help democrats decide wisely the future
course of the party.
Ex-Pn*sident Grover Cleveland, who
was unable to be present, sent his compli
ments in a letter, in which he expressed
the conviction that the situation confront
ing the people had directed their atten
tion more to their relief from conditions
that alarmed and startled them than to
the empty satisfaction of partisan su
Judge O'Brien's Speech.
Mr. O'Brien, after referring In highly
complimentary terms to Mr. Cleveland,
and by inference to ex-Judge Alton B.
Parker as "an ideal candidate," said:
"The aims and principles of the party
have been so frequently stated In plat
forms and public addresses and so well
summarized in 'Jefferson's first inaugural
address, that it is unnecessary to repeat
them at length? but In passing. It Is
proper to note that whenever the party
has stood firmly and unitedly for these
principles, we have never met with a de
feat, and it has only been when the party
has been divided, because of the hope
that success would result from following
some shifting popular sentiment, or some
new and impracticable reform, that we
have met with overwhelming and deserved
defeat. To ascertain the cause of this,
we need but look carefully into the cam
paigns that have been waged, and con
trast the men and the measures that weie
successful with the conditions that exist
ed at the time of defeat."
Mr. Cleveland's Letter.
Mr. Cleveland said in his letter:
"I am intensely interested in every ef
fort to revive genuine and effective demo
cratic sentiment, and to restore the demo
cratic courage, consistency and confidence

WOMAN GETS RID OK "COFFEE HEART."
The injurious action of Coffer on the heart of

caused by caffeine. This la the drug found by
chemists in coffee and tea.
A woman suffered a long time wttb severe
heart trouble ami flnallr her doctor told her she
must give uji coffee, as that was the principal
cause of the trouble. She writes:
"ify heart wa? so weak it could not do Its
workp properly. My husband would Mime times
have to carry me from the table, and it would
seem that I would never breathe again.
"The doctor told me that coffee was causing
the weaknesa of my heart. He said I must atop
it, but it seemed I could not give it up until I
was down In bed with nervous prostration.
"For eleven weeks I lay there and suffered.
Finally husband brought home some I'oaturn and
I quit coffee and started new and right. Slowly
I got well. Now I do not have any iieadaches.
