for Major tad Marshal Aa In

Helena, Ark., April 6. The total
loss last night by fire of the mill of
the Helena Lumber Company, with
out tlollar a insurance on it, has cast
shadow of despair over the eneryetic
citizens of Helena, who do not, how
ever, indulije in the luxury of com
plaint, but philosophically take an
optimistic view of the situation and
immediately take steps to prove their
position by taking off their coats and
cheerfully going to work wits' the
laudable determination to test ore
their shattered fortunes.
The loss last night affects the town,
for the present, very seriously. The
company bad in their employ about
seventy-five men whose wages were
the source of no small revenue to the
business interests of the town. The
mill and fixtures was one of the largest
and most complete in the State, having
a capucity of cutting and finishing 35,
000 feet of lumber a day The mill
had immense contrai-ts on hand for
Chicago and St, Louis manufacturing
concerns, besides large local ord rs,
principally for the new buildings being
erected in the burned district. Tho
fire originated in the sawdust carrier,
and if the watchman, a negro named
Josh Hudson, had been at his post of
duty, the tire could have been easily
extinguished before it became uncon
trollable. The proprietors, Maj. I. F.Watson,
at one time for a number of years
postmaster of Helena; Mr. George
Walker and Mr. A. N. Sutherland, are
all very popular with the citizens of
Helena and vicinity. We are unable
to learn whether they will rebuild or
not. They have aboiit .',500,000 feet
of timber on hand, which the citizens
of Helena hope may be instrumental
in causing an immediat) erection of
TO-DAY IS KLFCTIOS DAY,
and notwithstanding everybody was
at the fire last night none of the usual
interest that characterizes an Arkan
sas election is absent. The contest is
for Mayor and Marshal, there being
two candidates for each position, Mr.
Aaron Meyers and Mr. John J. Moore
being aspirants for the former, and
Mr. Silas Lingg and Mr. D. W. Peck
for the latter. Mr. Meyers is the
present incumbent of the Mayoralty
and until a few days ago had no oppo
sition to his re-election. Warm ad
mirers of v.r. John J. Moore, a young
lawyer of considerable ability and
spotless integrity, prevailed upon him
to enter the contest. It is impossible
to tell what the result will be to-night
at the close of the polls, as great inter

'of both candidates
The contest for the Marshalship is
equally interesting, the present Mar

a well-known character, and has prob
ably seen as much of the stirring

century as any living man. I chose a
quiet half hour for an interview and
found the old warrior meditatively
smoking a cigar. He glanced at my
card, shook me warmly by the hand
and we exchanged the meteorological
observations, which always prelude
conversation in modern t mes. After

Colonel said : "I expect you are go

were completely demoralized and
the alternative was to die in the

jroved to be equally disastrous. That

"How was that?'' I asked.
"Well, about six months previous to
the outbreak of the war, there was an
Anglo-American weekly paper started
In New York City called The Albion, to
which I subscribed. One of its features
each week was a gbot-t story. These
stories were told reniarkablv well, and
in each instance appealed to be sub
stantiated with what purported to be
real names. I read each one, and, be
ing young and imaginative, accepted
the narratives as gospel; just yielded
to the fascination, so to speak, and
was quite willing to believe that the

RIGHTS OF IIIE CHINESE.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESI
BEST TO THE SEN ATE.
What lliej Are EutiUed to Under
Treaty Stipulations YVh. re the
Law lias Been Tiolatid.
Washic;ton, April 6 The Senate
received from the President to day a
long message transmitting a corre
spondence between the Secretary of
State and the Chinese Ministor, with
regard to the treaty rights of Chinese
subjects other than laborers, "to go
ami como of their own free will and
accord " The President savs that cases
of individual hardship beyond the
power of the executive to remedy h ve
occurred in the application of the Chi
nese acts, which are due to the am
biguous arid defective provisions of
the acts of Congress. The hardship
has, in some cases, been remedied by
the courts, but in others, where the
phraseology has appeared to be conclu
sive against any discretion on the part
of the officers. Chin se persons ex
pressly entitled to free admission un
der tho treaty have been refused a
landing, and have been sent back to
the country whence they came with
out being afforded an opportunity to
show their rights. The act of July 5,
1S84 the President says imposed an
impossible condition in not

under a proper certificate of Chinese
travelers of tho exempted class in
cases most likely to arise in ordinary
commercial intercourses. The Presi
dent here quotes tho provisions of the
treaty and of the immigration act of
1884. Of the latter he says a statute
is certainly most unusual which, pur
porting to execute the provisions of a
treaty with China, enacts formalities
as regards the subjects of other gov
ernni"iits than that of China. He
calls the earnest attention of Congress
to the circumstance that the statute
makes no provision whatever for the
somewhat numerous class! of Chinese
persons who, retaining the Chinese
subjection in some countries other
than China, desire to como from such
countries to the United Suites. Chi
nese merchants, ho says, have trading
operations of magnitude throughout
the world. They do not becomes citi
zens of the country where they may
temporarily reside and trade. They
continue to be subjects of Ch na and

ForfJveor six years I had been afflicted
with what every one pronounoad to b a can
cer on my nos. After trying various reme
d es with n success I was induced to try
UeiNti'a Pionxkb Blood Rsaswaa. Alter
nsing sareml bottles of the Renewer, I am
happy to slat that all appearance of th
cauoer or any other skm disM has been
driven away, and I have experienced no
pain from tha cancer sine. I heartily re
commend the Blood Renewer to all who may
be effliotcd in alike manner. I believe it
t' be the "best medieiue in eiisteno" for
the cure of every and all diseases arising
fron. impurity of th blood.
