Gentlemen: I have been a constant sufferer with stomach trouble for a number of

any good results until I was fortunate enough to hear of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.
After a trial I was relieved and at the present time I am entirely well. I take pleasure in
recommending same to those afflicted with trouble of this kind and am sure that it is
instant relief and in time a sure cure. Respectfully yours,

TWO SWITCH BILLS
l!i CITY COUNCIL,

mails Sit!: Additional Track
The Introduction of two railroad ?witch
bills In the City Council csterday after
noon, in addition to the two others which
hnvo been presented in the House of Dele
gates, within the last tv.o weeks, occasioned
much purprls" among the memler9 of the
upper house, and a rumor was fon circu
lated quietly that perh ips nn nttempt
wculd be made to plaeo tho Munloinil At
rcmbly on public record In this matter.
The bills which were tendered In the
House wero Intrusted to tho Itallroad Com
mittee. One of them authorizes tho Vnua.h
Kallroad to build n. spur track at Vanile
enWr a-cnue and tho main tracks; the
other empowers tho St. lxuis, Iron Moun
tain and Southern ltallrnad to lay switch
raiU at Kosciusko and SotilarJ .streetn.
Tho Iron Mountain bill was referred to a
committee last night, and the Wabash 1)111

deemed Important by business men gen
erally, one in particular having a vccullar
significance. Councilman Kratz offered, by
rtquest, a bill to allow the Missouri Pacific
Itailroad Company to build a spur track
from Fourteenth and Gratiot streets east
ward through th alley letween Gratiot and
I'aphi streets to the Shlckle, Harri-on &
Howard Company's foundrj' at Twelfth and
Tho second Mil was submttted by Council
man Gast, by request. It permits tho St.
Lcuis Merchants' Bridge Terminal Railroa
Company to lay a switch track along Mal
Hnckrodt strett to the Buck Stove and
Itaiige Company at No. tt) North Second
btreet. Both measures were laid over for
recond reading. Many managers of manu
facturing and mercantile concerns will
watch the.se two bills with keen interest,
as .some former ones that wpfe stnt to the
A-embly met with mjsterious death.s.
The Shlckle. Harrison A; Howard Com
pany sought favorable legislation prior to
this on a bimil.tr bill, but It was not passed,
and tho company erected a. new factory In
East St. Louis. Mr. Harrison Is quoted as
saying that his firm will bo enabled to keep
a large number of men at work In th St.
Louis shops if the rresent bill should be
eonio a law. The statement that the St.
Louis Manufacturers' Association la foster
ing the Council bills comes from a reliable
f-ourte. , .
The race Is now on between the City
Council and the House of Delegates. Each
body has two switch bills to consider, and
to pass on or to teject.

day had been probably the- most trilng of
his experience. Early this morning the

all over Cumberland County, and Clark and
Kdgar also were represented. The proces

Just about the same way he talks In oreli

wrongs against the flag and against tho
time-honored principles of the Republic and
how- the present Republican party was
striving to establish a limited monarchy,
not with titles of nobility, but with all the
adjuncts of a monarchy without a King.

The train pulled Into East St. Louis an
hour late. After supper the special train
for Bellcvlll-J was boarded. This consisted
of fourteen coaches, and every one was
crowded to tho limit, over 1.3M voters ac
cepting tho courtesies of tho Railroad
Men's Bryan and Alschuler Club.undr
whoso auspices Mr. Alschuler spoke to
night. St. Clair County Is In n turmoil. It never
has cast Its vote twice in succession for the
Fame political party. I am Informed, and
this year it will not break the record, and
more Important still. St. Clair always goe-
bard for the side it Is on.
It Is Democratic year this time, and the
majority Is s-ure to be nearly 5u It was
k") Republican in 1S36. Some of the most
enthusiastic candidates for county office,
who havu canvassed every precinct In tho
county, declare it will ovceed 1,000. The
Immense registration In East St. Louis. 7.-
835. astonishes the Republicans. They con
fess tneir amazement anei mat tney uon t
understand it. Tho Democrats smlllngly
advlse their enemy to wait until the votes
are counted next month, and then they
will know more. Tho heaviest Increase In
registration Is- In Democratic wards.
This carrying of St. Clair means that Bil
ly Rodenberg will be defeated by at least
1.009 more votes than Kern's majority In
St. Clair. That ls. Kern will come to St.
Clair with at least 1.O0O. and there ls not
one chance In a hundred of Rodenberg'9
election. East St. Louis voters compli
mented Rodenberg two years ago, and the
Democrats of that hustling city think he
ought to be satisfied with their support
This year there Is too much at stake, and
besides. Sir. Rodenberg disgusted hundreds
of Democrats and Republicans, who Im
agined he had some backbone, when ho
turned his back on the Porto Rlcan bill and
voted for the 13 per cent tariff because
Mark Hanna wanted him to do so. He ls
charged with being the representative of
Hanna. and not of the Twenty-first Illinois
District. The Anti-Kern Democratic Club of 1
East St. Louis ls a phantom, a burlesque. I
