congress in lSS to investigate in
Europe the causes inciting immigra

Sunday, before the Jewish lhautaur
qua on the subject of "The Status of
the Jews in Russia."
In his address Mr. Weber charged
the Itiussian restrictive laws as being

Jews were permitted to live during
the past forty years.
Summing up the status of 1 lie Jew
in Russia. Mr. Weber said:
"To-day he is an alien in the land
of his birth, a subject who bears an
undue share of the burdens of good
government without the privileges of
ihe meanest citizens. Fettered in his

After asserting the moral obliga
tion and the right of the I'nited
States to protest to the Russian gov
ernment, against its treatment of the
Jews, Mr. Weber said:
"1 can not look with unconcern up
on the arrival of thousands of hunt
ed, terror-stricken human beings,
who come to us, crushed in spirit and
impoverished in substance, to enter
into competition with our respected
and self-rspecting lalxir. .Neither is
it an answer to say that, we have 1he
remedy in our own hands by closing
our ports against these people. Thi
wuld violate our every instinct of
humanity and would war against the
policy which has made this cnuntrv
great and prosperous and which will
continue to add to our progress and
prosperity if immigration is con
fined to normal causes alone. The
abnormal immigration from Itus.-ia is
due to the laws and methods of that,
country and this gives us a legal
nnd moral right to object. Self-interest
and humanity unite in a loud
call to invoke such rights."
Referring to the hope that a con
siderable part of this stream from
Russia may lie diverted to other
lands, Mr. Weber quoted the state
ment of an immigrant at. Kovno in
"I am going to America, for in. that
direction lies hope. Here I have only
fears to confront me. The hope may
prove delusive, but the fears are a

"These," continued the speaker,
"are the words of nn uncultured Jew,
and these are the sentiments in the
heart of every Jew in Russia."
Continuing, he said:
"He patient with these unfortunate
people, and do not judge them by the
ordinary standards. Their lives from
the cradle up have been passed under
extraordinary conditions. The grown

mistreatment, they can not banish

New York, July 11. The new pier
.if the Scandinavian-American line, at
the foot of Seventeenth street. Ho
boken, X. J., was destroyed by fire
Friday, and for the second time in
three years the line is temporarily
without a pier. It is believed the loss
will amount to almost $300,000. Tha
dock alone cost $200,000 to build. The
fire started in the store room of the
pier, and when discovered the fire
had a firm foothold. Thers was no
ship of the line in port. The steam
ship Islands should have docked Fri
day, but did not arrive. On the pier
was a large part of the cargo destined
for Europe which was to be shipped
on the Islands, and this was de
stroyed, causing a loss of over $300,
000. Comparatively few men were at
work on the pier at the time.
WThen the first fire engines arrived
fully three hundred feet of the pier
was blazing from the water's edge to
the top. Tugs of all sorts -and sizes
threw water into the fire, but this
seemed to have little effect. The city
firemen were badly hampered in
reaching the place. The flames spread
as rapidly as when the Xorth German
Lloyd and Scandinavian piers burned
three years ago. There were three
explosions, apparently caused by bar
rels of some inflammable material.
The flames spread very rapidly. Tha
heat was intense, and many firemftu
dropped into the river for relief.

An affecting interview has occurred
between the pontiff, Cardinal Satolli
and three other cardinals represent
ing various degrees of the sacred col

ions were admitted to the presence of
the pope as a special favor, following
his earnest entreaties, in the gentlest
manner Cardinal Maechi, shaking for
all, told the pontiff of the universal
interest, taken in his condition, add
ing: "Prayers are going up every
where that the Lord may preserve for
the benefit of the church, the precious
life of your holiness."
"I thank your eminence," replied
;he pope. "It will be as II ml wishes.
We must submit In His holy will." S;j
saying the sufferer pressed the hand
of each of the cardinals as they with
One of the cardinals present at the.
interview, spoke afterwards of the re
markable changes that had been
wrought since he had' last seen the
pontiff only last Sunday night, when
extreme unction was administered to
his holiness. The cardinal said: "The
appearance of the Holy father is in
tensely painful. He maintains mental
acumen, but his brave spirit: is terri
bly broken. This was especially ap
parent to me, while 1 am used to see
him often. 1 have observed a great
change in his physical condition dur
ing the last five days. Mis words nr;
now uttered with difficulty and he
raises his hand only after an effort.
His face is excessively emaciated and
his eyes are deeply sunken. His ex
treme weakness is evident at the first
glance; there remains only a shadow
of the man."
Cardinal Satolli, in a conversation,
said that life was only kept in the
tired body of the pontiff by the con
stant use of powerful slimulants, and
other persons Auully reliable who
saw the pope Sunday and who had
Seen him on previous days of his 'ill
ness, agree with Cardinal Satolli in
saying that death has made nil his
ravages save separation of the soul
and body. And yet doctors announce
fo the public that the pope's general
condition is satisfactory. An ex
planation of the apparent contradic
tion lies in the fad that the doctors
expected his holiness to die long be
fore this and now are exercising in
their bulletins an excess of caution
and a comparative method of expres
siop which is incomprehensible to
the lay mind. Moreover, the extraor
dinary vitality of their patient has,
so to speak, annihiliated every medi
cal theory held by doctors- in Italy
so that it is scarcely surprising that

DeWitte is extremely friendly to

ED. DELEHANTY'S REMAINS.
A Body, Believed to Be That of tha
Drowned Baaeball Player, Tak

Buffalo, X. Y., July 10. The body
found in the river below the fails,
Thursday, was identified at Drum
niomlville as that of Kd. Delehunty,
Ihe famous outfielder of the Wash
ington American league team.
The body was mangled. One lee;
was torn off, presumably by the pro
peller of the Maid of the Mist, near
whose landing the body was found.
M. A. Green, a stockholder in the
Washington team, identified the body
by the teeth, two crippled fingers and
the clothing. The body was shipped
Mr. tireen, Thursday morning, iden
tified the luggage left by Delehanty
on the train at the bridge last Thurs
day night when he was put off.
In it was a pass to the Washington
grounds made out to Mrs. Delehanty.
Delehanty's' effects have been sent to
his wife by the Pullman people.
Frank Delehantv, of the Syracuse
team, and E. J. McGuire, a brother-in-law,
from Cleveland, are here investi
gating the death of the player. They
do not believe that Delehanty com
mitted suicide or that he had been on
a spree in Detroit. In the sleeper on
the Michigan Central Irani on tha
way down from Detroit Delehunty
had five drinks of whisky, says Con
ductor Cole, and he became so ob
streporous that he had to be put off
the train at Rridgeburg, at the Cana
dian end of the bridge. Cole says
Delehanty had an open razor and was
terrifying others in the sleeper.
When the train stopped at Bridgc-
burg Cole did not deliver Delehanty
up to a constable as the Canadian po
lice say he should have done. He just
put him off the train.
After the train had disappeared
across the. bridge Delehanty started
to walk across, which is against the
rules. The night watchman attempt
ed to stop him, but Delehanty pushed
the man to one side. The draw of
the bridge had been opened for a
boat, and the player plunged into tha
dark waters of the Niagara.
Delehanty's relatives hint at' foul
play, but there is nothing in the ens,
apparently, to bear out, such a theory.
Ihe body, when found, was nude
save for necktie, shoes and socks. The
clothes had probably been torn off
in the passage of the 'rapids and in
going over the Horseshoe falls. The
body was much bloated.

A Movement of Signal Importance

A PLAN TO EVANGELIZE THE WORLD.
Tentative Proposition For the Amal

vor, the Euwortb. League and tha
Ilaptlat I nlon la One Grand 'a
Denver, Col., July 12. A movement
of signal importance in the religious
world has' been launched by the Chris
tian Endeavor convention now in ses
sion here. It is a tentative proposal
to work for the amalgamation of the
Christian Endeavor society, the Ep
worth league and the Baptist union,
and it will be presented in the form
of a petition from the Endeavorers
to the other two national bodies.
In taking 1 tie initiative in the ad
vocacy of such union, the Christian
Endeavor society points to its prior
ity of establishment us justification.
To Evangelise the World.
"To evangelize the world." This is
the keynote of the pleas of the noted
ministerial orators of this country
and of England who, by their zeal
and eloquence, are stirring the souls
of the large audiences which attend
the sessions of the International
Christian Endeavorers' convention and
the numerous auxiliary meetings.
That a definite plan for currying on
the work will be adopted before the
convention adjourns is probable.
The complete registered returns ol
accredited delegates has not yet been
compiled, but at the lowest estimate
there are now fully 8,000 in the city,
and the total number of visitors is
not less than 20.000.
Plenftniit Impromptn Features.
Two pleasant impromptu features
of the convention have been the pre
sentation by Chuplaiu Rev. E. Steel,
of the United States navy, to Presi
dent, Francis E.Clark of a. small Amer
ican flag, said to be the first raised
by American troops over Cavite, and
the expression given by Rev. R. J.
Campbell, of London, to the sentiment
of unity growing between Great Brit
ain and the United States.
Sunrise quiet hour services in five
city churches at six o'clock Saturday
morning were attended by thousands
of delegates, although they had been
occupied until late Friday night with
convention business. From 8:30 to
9:30 sessions of the Christian En
deavor school of methods were held
in the churches.
THE PAPAL SUCCESSION.
The More Prominent I'ohnI unities In
the Sncred College for the
Rome, July .12. All the world is oc
cupying itself with a discussion of tee
probable successor of Leo XII 1. In ex
pectation of an early conclave, no
cardinal has left the city during the
past week and inie are on their way
here. There are now at least; 02 car
dinals in Rome, including all of the
Italians. Of course, Leo's successor
wil be an Italian. A pope of other na
tionality would be. bound to create
a recrudescence of the question of
temporal power, which would be de
plorable. Of the pnpuble Italian cardinals,
these names are chiefly discussed:
(lotti, Svampa, Vannutelli, Oreglin
and llanipollu, J I is improbable that
the college will elect Oregliil, the
aged eamerleiigo. There is a pontifi
cal tradition thai the camerlengo is
rarely elevated to the papacy. This
tradition, however, was broken wlu-H
Leo was elected. Serafino Vannutelli
is highly commended because of his
diplomatic experience and prudence,
In the latter he resembles Leo.
The chief contest is expected to be
between (iotti, Rampolln and Yannu
telli, although Cardinals Sarto, Dipie
tro and Svampa'are frequently men
tioned. Rampolla, the papal secretary
of state, is an able prelate, but his
policy lias made many adversaries; be
sides, never has a state secretary
achieved the papacy. It is said, also.
1 hat. he has determined to retire to a
monastery when Leo dies.
tlotti is an able, intellectual execu
tive, lie is the head of the Carmelite
order as u- monk, not as a secular
priest. His election would add luster
to the church, unci his management of
the Carmelites indicates the probable
policy he would adopt if he were
elected pope. In all quesfions (iotti
would seVk for the triumph of jus
tice. He is not offensive in his pa
triotism, und his acts have concen
trated upon him the attention of his
colleagues. External influences would
not be a factor in his election. y
Svampa is very ill, being threatened
with paralysis. Already he has had
an apoplectic seizure.
The chief opposition of the college
of cardinals is against Rampolla

Baltimore VUlted Storm.
Baltimore, Md., July 13. A severe
wind and rain storm occurred, Sun
day afternoon, Which was particularly
violent in a limited section of north
east Baltimore, where, within a radius
of about four blocks, SO houses were
unroofed, walks demolished and trees
uprooted. For several ' squares the
streets were thickly strewn with
debris of wrecked roofs, brick and
splintered limbs of trees. Three hun
dred people were rendered homeless
for the time being, and were comr
pelled to find temporary shelter.
The real heroines of every day are in our homes. Frequently, how
ever, it is a raistaken and useless heroism.
Womm seem to listen to every call of duty except the supreme
one that tells them to guard their health. How much harder the daily
tasks become when some derangement of the female organs makes
every movement painful and keeps the nervous system unstrung?
Irritability takes the place of happiness and amiability: and weakness
and suffering takes the place of health and strength. As long as they
can drag themselves around, women continue to woik and perform
their household duties. They have been led to believe that suffering
is necessary because they are women. "What a mistake I

FREE MEDICAL ADVICE TO WOMEN.
If there ia anything in your case about which you would like
special advice, write freely to Mrs. Pinkham. No man will see
your letter. She can surely help you, for no person in America
has such a wide experience in treating female ills as she lias had.
She has helped hundreds of thousands of women back to health.
Her address is Lynn, Mass., and her advice is free. You are very
foolish if you do not accept her kind invitation.
For proof read the symptoms, suffering and cure

hemorrhages of the womb that nothing could seem to stop.

began to get stronger, and in two weeks was about the house. I took eight
bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and continued

"Dear Mrs. Pinkham : Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound has done a great deal for me. I suffered so much from falling of the
womb and all the troubles connected with it. I doctored for years with
doctors'and other remedies but received only temporary relief.
" I began taking your medicine, and had not taken it long before I was
feeling better. My husband said that I should keep right on taking it as long,
as it gave me relief from my suffering, as I could not expect to be cured by
one or two bottles. I did so and am now able to be on my feet and work
hard all day, and go to bed and rest at night. Thanks to your Vegetable Com
pound I am certainly grateful for the relief it gave me. It is the mother's
great friend. I would not be without it in my house, for when I feel tired
or out of sorts I takea few doses and feel all right.
" I would recommend your medicine to all tired mothers, and especially
to tnose Buttering as l was." Mrs. K.
