Kew Yoek, Jane 7. The terrible disas
ter in the Conemaugh Valley together with
floods extending from southern New York
south into Maryland and Virginia, have
checked movement of general merchandise
at all supply points for the region referred'
to. Pittsburg and Philadelphia lose most
in this way. The loss of property in the ter
ritory outlined trill not exceed $15,000,000.
The estimated amount of capital invested in
the Conemaugh Valley (where the property
loss is placed at $30,000,000), was $T,600,000,
of which 55,400,000 was employed industri

through Central Pennsylvania, Eastern mar

England of leather, have been curtailed and

The almost total destruction by fire of
Seattle, "W. T., has apparently obliterated
more than $15,000,000 worth of property.
The estimated commercial capital invested
at Seattle was $4,100,000. The most active
general trade throughout the country
relatively is reported at Cincinnati, Louis
isrille, Memphis, Chicago and San Fran

in Georgia, and to a less degree in Louisi

DUN'S -WEEKLY BEVTEtT.
R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of
trade says: The flood disasters have en
tirely changed the situation in the Eastern
lumber trade, the coal, iron and steel trades.
Producing companies of the first importance
have suddenly ceased operations, and their
orders must be filled by others or delayed.
The flooding of many coal mines cuts off sup
plies of fuel for many manufacturing works,
and the stoppage of the Cambria mills,
which have produced yearly over 35,000
tons of iron in various forms, will affect the
trade - for some time. The destruction of
more than 40 bridges, about half of them on
the Pennsylvania Railroad, besides many
locomotives, cars and miles of track, creates
a sndden demand which is felt in all iron
and steel markets.
Pig iron does not chance as yet, the pro
duction previous to the disaster having been
much in excess of consumption. The South
ern sales of pig have been steady at former
prices, but 25,000 tons of rails have been
sold and the price is firmer at $27, while
structural plate and tank and bar iron are
stronger and an advance is looked for in
nails. In anthracite coal the tone is stronger.

silver certificates have been put out

A MIXED SITUATION.

GOVERNOR FORAKER'S AMBITION.
Wants the Executive domination and
the State Senatorship, Too.
DANGEE OP A DEMOCRATIC TIOT0EI
rSFECXIX TILXOBAM TO Till DISPATCH. 1
Fihdi-av, June 7. The "fact that the
Republican State Convention will meet in
less than three weeks to nominate a candi
date for Governor and seven minor State
officers, is giving the politicians of that
party considerable food for speculation as to
who among the many candidates for the first
place on the ticket is likely-to secure, the big
prize; and the significance such a selection
will have on the greater and moremportant
contest next winter in the General Assembly
and also to be elected this' fall over
choosing a successor to the Hon. Henry B.
Payne in the United States Senate.
It is hardly necessary to preface what fol
lows by saving that the Republicans of Ohio
are divided into factions and camDS. each
suspicious and jealous of the other, and all
consumed by the fear that the convention
which meets in Columbus on the 25th inst
will make a blunder in nominating a man
for Governor who, in his personality and
associations, will be at once recognized as
the representative of some one of the "Big
Four combination, which still assumes to
control the party in this State by cutting
each other's throats whenever opportunity
offers. The result of a nomination dictated
by either Foraker. Foster. .But terworth or
McKinley, leaving John Sherman out of
the deal, need hardiy be predicted.
It goes without the saying that the sev
eral defeated factions would encompass the
downfall of such a candidate at the polls,
and consider they were performing a re
ligious' .duty in so doing, thus permitting
me .Democrats to carry tne state and tbe
Legislature, as they have not failed to do
in each year succeeding a Presidental elec
tion since 1863, perpetuating in this way
Ohio's Democratic representation in the
United States Senate, which has virtually
been unbroken for almost three decades.
A PEOMTNENT EEATUBE.
In the light of this fear, -which has ap
peared at every county convention for the
selection of delegates thus far held, and
which is present at every conference of the
party, nothing of a definite character has
made itself manifest upon which to rest
predictions as to who will likely receiye the
nomination for Governor. There are candi
dates enough, but whether they are out for
tne nomination, or simply as the tools ot
the factions which are scheming for the
Senatorship, is what fills the heart of the
average Republican who honestly desires
the success of his party regardless of in
dividuals with uneasiness and grave
apprenension. uneasiness as to tne ulti
mate result, and apprehension that, in the
multiplicity of candidates, the friends of
Foraker the office-holding element may
spring his name upon the convention for a
third term, and upon the failure to harmon
ize on anyone else accomplish his nom
ination beiore the second, sober effect of
such a'step can be realized, and the danger
averted. That Foraker would accept a
nomination, secured under such circum
stances, no one who is acquainted with his
vaulting ambition doubts.
It is said, and generally believed, that
among the 12 or 13 announced . candi
dates for Governof "whose names will
be presented to the convention, outside
oi O'Keil and Vance there is not a man in
the field but would rather Foraker received
the nomination than that anv 'of his com
petitors should carry off -the capital prize.
This gives color to the charge, which has
been made and not denied, that Foraker has
induced a number of these gentlemen, to be
come candidates for Governor with-this un
derstanding: that he, Foraker, is ultimately
to receive the nomination.
HIS EITTXE GAME.
The uncertainty and fear which at present
so plainly dominate the rank ana file of
the party indicate the general belief
that this is the ambitious Governor's
scheme, through which he hopes to down
the other members of the "Big Four" com
bine and secure for himself the United States
Senatorship, upon which his eye has been
fixed ever since he became a theatrical and
picturesque feature in the peculiae politics
of Ohio. But through all this doubt and
fear and mist and gloom, one thing shines
out as clear and bright as the sun at noon,
and that is this: The Republicans are going
into the campaign badly handicapped, with
gloomy forebodings of defeat and without a
spark of enthusiasm. They have, as yet,
no definite ideas as to candidates or prin
ciples. The only thing that has entered into the
contest thus far has been the spoils, and
upon that issue the party is so hopelessly
divided'that if the Democrats only exhibit
ordinary horse sense in the formation of
their ticket and platform they will sweep
the State from the lakes to the river, and
elect not only the Governor and other State
officers, hut the General Assembly as well,
and thus continue Ohio's Democratic repre
sentation in the United States Senate.
To snm up: the Republicans of the Buck
eye State were never in a more demoralized
condition at the beginning of any campaign
in the history of the party, and unless the
unexpected happens at the Columbus con-,
vention, Harrison's administration will re
ceive such a backset in November as will
hardly cause the President to bless the State
in which he first saw the light of day.

The 'Winnings In 'a Short Time Foot Up a
Quarter of a Million Points for
Men and Women
New Yoek, Jnne 7. Gamblers of high
and low degree are in the heyday of their
prosperity. ' Not only is' their present rose
colored, but the future seems brilliant for
members of the fraternity, who dub them
selves "bookmakers," "speculators," and
even "custodians." Plain old-time gam
blers, who, in their own language, "made
no bones of it," would scorn such cloaks for
an illegitimate calling.
From the lips of a bookmaker, speculator
and custodian,- the other day, fell the fol
lowing story of the recent rapid growth of
gambling, particularly among the younger
men and women of to-day:
"Never in the history of horse racing,
faro playing, roulette playing or poker
playing, have I seen so many fools as can be
picked up anywhere. All are gambling
crazy. Not since I first started in as a a
bookmaker in 1873, 16 years ago, has any
thing liko it been seen. Last year these
amateur gamblers were moderately success
ful. "Why, you couldn't go into a big cafe

enough money to make him a fool on horse
racing forever. I say foreyer, for who ever
heard ot a man's being once successful who
didn't think he could name a winning horse
PJVAYIHO TK OBEAT LTJCB
"To my positive knowledge the book
makers, so far this season, have cleared not
less than $250,000.- That sounds big, doesn't
it? So it is, but their winnings have been
something beyond what even the most san-
guine expected or areamea oi at we upemng
of the season.
"Let me tell you of one example. Just;
before the Brooklyn handicap races last
week a young fellow, scarcely out of his
teens, canie to me for a point on a race. I
knew him to belong to a respectable family,
and not addicted to gambling in any form.
'Keep away,' was my advice. Don't'attend a
race to put money on a horse, even if you
are sure of winning' Pools never listen
to anybody's advice. Only yesterday that
same vouth went "West to avoid the trouble
incident, to his owing his employer more-
money than he could pay. In two weeks
he was clqaued out ot every cent he had,
and some of his employer's money besides.
It's an old story, but how few persons know
when and where to quit a gambling game?
None, or at all events not one in one hun
dred, and that's big odds."
Then, to change the subject a little from
horse racing, the bookmaker said: "Faro
and roulette have done well during the past
winter, and the coming season will be. equal
ly good. All a faro bank needs is customers.
Success is sure. Long Branch will be the
great place this summer. "Why, there is a
widow down there now whose house has
been fitted up for poker playing and nothing
else. In the cottage are nine rooms for
poker players. Her profits are legitimate,
for she simply takes what we call a "Kitty,"
and furnishes refreshments.
WOMEN WHO BET. (
This is not a new idea for Long Branch.
but the idea of a woman's keeping it is de
cidedly new. She gained her experience by
loosing tne insurance on ner nusDancrs lite
on faro. D6 women gamble much?
Weill "Why, some ot the wildest
plungers at race tracks and poker
are women, and it isn't always the women
in plain, everyday life. "Women in social
circles so exclusive that few get there are
addicted to petty gambling. That is, they
kill time with draw poker at a dollar
limit To my positive knowledge In
spector Byrnes .only three months ago
was interviewed by a well-known lady
who wanted him to frighten her daughter
while they were playing cards for money in
the house of a friend. The inspector agreed
to arrest all hands, and promised to nave
them put through the courts, and the
mother fainted dead away and refused to
give the address. -
"But to go back to horses. "While the
newspapers are harping on gambling and
bookmaking two bookmakers are making
money within sound of their presses. There
is no cure no stopping it. As lonz as our
smart voung men know more about horses
than the bookmakers do, so long will the
bookmakers exist and make money."
Thus spoke one of the best-known all
around gamblers in New York, a man who
lost S20.000 when the Republicans nut ud
enough money to carry the State of New'
York. But, as he said: "Even gamblers
get burned when they touch the red hot
irons that make Presidents."

It goes further than any other-cocoa

'Some of the Advantages of Village
Lite Around Pittsburg.
ONE NOTABLE INTERVIEW.
"One who has lived in any of the suburban
villages just out of Pittsburg, would hardly
exchange his home at this season of the
year for one in the city proper," said Mr.
'Adams. He was speaking of his home at
Mansfield, just eight miles out on the Pan
handle, and one of the pleasantest of
suburban neighborhoods. His family have
resided there for 14 years and over, his
father being proprietor of the Mansfield
It was during this conversation with Mr.
Adams that he made the following state
ment': "It had been a trouble," he said, "that I
tried in every way to get rid of without any
success. It kept slowly, gradually getting
worse all the time. Sometimes I would
think I was a little better, but after awhile
I would drop back into a still worse con
dition. "In the morning I would feel' tired and
worn out. It seemed as if my sleep had not
at all rested me. I would feel more tired
when I would get up in the morning than
when I would go to bed at night
"My Head would ache continually.
Usually it would be a dull, heavy pain in
my forehead over the ey6s and across the
bridge of my nose. I would have dizzy
spells, and when I would stoop over quick
a swimming sensation and spots floating be
fore my eyes. The least light would make
my eyes water and feel weak. My nostrils
would clog up, sometimes on one side, some
times on the other, and there would be at
times considerable discharge. Then there
would be such sounds in my ears like ring
ing or singing or roaring or buzzing, as to
almost distract me. My ears, and eyes and
nose troubled me all the time.
"When the trouble got into my throat and
chest, I commenced to loose flesh rapidly,
and I seemed to get weak and despondent.
I didn't feel as it I had any, energy or am
bitron. My throat wonld fill up and I
would have to be constantly hawking and
raising to clean it I coughed a great deal,
especially in the morning a dry, hacking
kindof a cough. Something would seem to
be sticking in my throat that would not get
up or down. Sharp pains would take me
in the chest, at most times about the region
of the heart.
"I would feel hungry all the time, but I
couldn't eat anything. "When I would sit
down to eat the sight and smell of food
would take my appetite away. There would
be a feeling of distress and nausea in my-
siomacu aiier eanng a sensation as 11 mere
was a load or weight there. I went to Califor
nia, and when I returned the trouble seemed to
grow upon me very fast. The loss in weight
and strength, the cough, the pains in the chest
"Well, some 'time ago I read in one of the
Pittsburg dailies tbe statement of a young
mechanic, who seemed to' be troubled about as
I was, and who had been treated and cured by
Drs. Copeland and Blair. I went to see them
myself, found that their charges were low and
not unreasonable, and I placed myself under
their care. I am glad to be able to say that I
improved from the start. Tbe ringing in tho
ears, the trouble with the eyes, the headaches
and pains in the chest passed away.
"In tho first two or three weeks alone I
gained six pounds in flesh. My appetite re
turned to me. I sleep well, and get up in the
morning feeling rested. I feel strong and well,
indeed like quite another person from wbat I
was when I went to Drs. Copeland and Blair."
Mr. William J. Adams, who makes this state
ment, lives, as stated, at tbe .Mansfield Hotel,
Mansfield, eight miles west of Pittsburg, on
the Panhandle road.
VERY PLAIN TALK.
Showing the Outline of a Roots Which Is
When a person with a delicate constitu
tion has a tendency to ttnarrb or consumption
whether this tendency is inherited or re
sults from taking cold easily it U notice
able that that person invariably loses flesh
and loses strength, showing that the nutri
tion is interfered with.
In such a case the sufferer should at once
be placed nnder influences that will restore
the defective nutrition and tend to invigor
ate the constitution.
It is to be remembered that in every case
the presence of catarrh is an evidence of
predisposition (o consumption, and no
matter how slight the attack may be, it
should be treated with the greatest care, and
the treatment should be continued until all
traces of the catarrh have disappeared.
If tbe catarrh is allowed to reach the smallest
tubes In the lungs which condition is indi
cated by the spitting up of a yellow material
then immediate attentlonto the malady is de
manded, or serions lung trouble will result.
aiarrii is, nine umes om oi len. tne cause
that produces consumption, and hence no one
can afford to neglect a case of catarrb.however
slight. It is easily enred, if taken in time and
treated regularly and correctly by a specialist.
If left to Itself it is rarely cured without a
change of climate, but with each new cold it
gets more and more troublesome, extending al
ways a little deeper into tbe lnngs until a enre
becomes difficult and sometimes impossible.
"I should like to be treated," a lady re
marked the other day, "but I would not
like to have my name in the paper." Let
it be stated that Drs. Copeland and Blair
never publish a name or statement without
the full and free consent of tbe patient, nor
do they publish one hundredth part of the
testimonials, letters and statements received
by them from grateful patients. As observed,
the statements given are entirely voluntary,
and are given by the patients for publication.
Drs. Copeland and Blair would never publish
tbe most emphatic testimonial unless the pa
tient givinc it understood that it was to be
printed and gave willing consent.

with Dillons attacks, more especially in the

action of tbe Liver is interfered with, causing
an overflow of bile into tbe blood. Tbe blood
carries this bile into every part ot the system,

originate from this bile poisoned blood. A
