ilr. Kay urged the resolution that would
have glvfjt preference to soldiers and sail
ors In public emplojment. The resolution
failed to receive consideration by Congress.
In hl3 letter to Mr. Dick Mr. Kay re
cites some hitherto unwritten history of the
campaign of 15"". when President McKin
ley and Senator Hanna. Mr. ranoJ Senator
Scott and Mr. Manley of the Republican
National Committee made pledges to the
eterars. The letter proceeds.:
"The conditions In the campaign of 1900.
both as to the political situation and that
of the national encampment, were alto
gether unsatisfactory. As to both, the sky
was overcast. A solution of all was found
at a meeting at tho Palmer House. Chicago,
August 28. 1900. some forty or more leading
etcrans. ell of whom were past commanders-in-chief,
or department commanders,
being present from States where the situa
tion was the worst, the outlook most
"Sickles was asked to organize another
whirlwind tour, as in 1S95. lrut he emphat
ically refused to volunteer to do any such
thing. He did consent to act as chairman
of that meeting, and appointed a commit
tee ot five to wait on some persons in a.
..nr..AnttiiKA cuTvac.itv at the Auditorium.
I being one of the ne. The four others went
to the National Committee, stated the situ
ation, and what was wanted, which was
agreed to. ls.. a change in Commissioner
of Pensions and the passage of the veteran
bill then pending (Bromwcll's). and the ap
proval of a court of penslon-aDpeals bill,
the latter wish being ".etoetl by the Presi
dent later on. but 'confirmed as to trie
others, and at the encampment all opposi
tion was stifled. ,
"Following that, the strongest organiza
tion e-.er perfected among veterans was
brought to ls-ar in eery doubtful Iocalitj.
Tou will recall thl-. I called personally on
Saturday morning, saw Secretary Payne,
went over the ground with him and others,
and. losing my return ticket to New ork,
bought another, went directly to 'Washing
ton on Ijibor Day and saw the President,
who congratulated me. and he then and
there called for a draft of his letter of ac
ceptance and changed it, at mv suggestion,
to read as It went to the people.
"And then, returning to New Tork. the
other matters were taken up and every
where the lighting was forced until the close
of the polls In that campaign the Veter
ans' Patriotic League deserved and received
the thanks of Mr. Hanna. Mr. Manley and
Mr. Payne. In letters to mvself and others.
In the name of heaven. Is the sense of honor
lost entirely among Americans?
"When I reflect that even the change in
the Pension Commissioner was brought
about only because the promise concerning
It was made known to President Roosevelt,
and he. holding It to be a matter of honor
which might not be pushed aside, made the
change, and under such circumstances no
power on earth could have saved Evans. It
seems to me tnat political nunor ib not re
garded at its value, or as having any.
except' in rare Instances and by few men.
Among these I place President Roosevelt
and Mr. Payne. Tlie latter has 'stood by
"When I think that nearly three jears
have passed Ince the promise of 1900. nnd
from thirty-eight to forty-two years since
the promise of the people in the great war
days, to the men who saved the nation were
made, all being dishonored through nonper
formance. It seems to me that national hon
or and personal political honor alike must
be at low ebb."

RAIN UNCOVERS GOLD NUGGET.
Valuable Specimen Is Fouud Near
Redding. Cal., March 7. A tale ot a gold
nugget valued at S3S3 being found within
three miles of the town of ..Shasta has
reached Redding. The nugget was found on
patented ground. At It was dlscotered on
the surface, and probably washed from out
side the exact boundaries of the patented
claim, tho finders feel that they hate a per
fect right to the gold, but as legal compli
cations might arise from the ownership of
such a valuable specimen, the Identity of
the finders is being kept quiet, as well as
the location of the find.
Three men were out after the recent rain
storm, looking for nuggets that might have
been uncovered by the flooding waters. One
of the three attempted to cross a small
stream, nnd, slipping on a rock, fell into
HU companions laughted as he went Into
the stream. Half In anger and half in fun.
the unlucky fellow nicked ur a loose rock
and threw It at them. It struck on another
rock on the bank, and the mud being
scratched off It bv the contact, the bright
yellow of gold was noticed.

December 17. 19"2. I. the manager of
Ihe English Restoratle Company, first
being dulv sworn, on oath depose and
say that the Ingredients of the Sir John
Hampton Vital Restorutlte for the cure

In men arc known to me and that this

following poisonous drugs, which, to my
positive knowledge, all or a portion of
which are used in all of the supposed
cures for these ailments that have been
examined by me, to-wit: Phosphorus,
Nux Vomlcn (Strychnine). Cantharides
(Spanish Fly), Morphine and Damlana
(although Damlana Is not considered a
poison by some physicians). And I do
mot solemnly swear that the Sir John
Hampton Vital Restorathe contains
none of these drugs nor anv other poi
sonous Ingredient; that a child could
lake It without Injurious results; fur
ther, that I am of ihe firm belief that
this Restorative will cure In every case
the diseases or ailments for which it is
recommended, and that it Is the only
medicine Known to medical science
which will develop or c.iuse growth In
certain organs It atrophied or undevel
oped. And. further, that I have never
known of a case of Sexual Dcbilllv or

perfectly cured except by the medicine

I AM the discoverer of a treatment which!
will restore to men their Vigor and
Vitality when orce lost. There are at
least a hundred others advertising this very
same thing and, as most Weak Men know
who have trid these cures, the results ar
not at all satisfactory. I have thought
many wearv days and nights how I could
demonstrate to a man that my treatment
the Sir John Hampton Vital Restorative
would cure him, nnd at last I have decided
to make this proposition to all men needing
my treatment: I will send a prescription
freo and a full trial treatment of my Re
storative to any man writing, for B0 cents,
and prepay the treatment to him. Now, I
would Just as soon give tne trial treatment
free, but I have tried it, and found that
every curiosity seeker In the country writes)
to me men who never did nor never will
take any physician's treatment if they have
to pay for it- Now, this Idea of mine will
effectually do away with that class. Tor the)
charge of 50 cents bars them out. Every
treatment I send out for this amount costa
me JI.C0. and I figure my loss at Just $1
each time I send a man the trial treatment.
I do not send Just a day or two's treat
ment, tut send enough to perfectly cure you"
or to demonstrate that I have a Restorative
which will cure. After you have taken the
test treatment you can send to me and I
will charge you a very reasonable sum for
n cure something less than the druggist
would charge you for the medicine called
for in the prescription, or jou can take,
the prescription to jour family druggist and
have it filled. Just as vou choose. If tho
Restorative is ordered from me. I make a
small profit if you get it from the druggist.
