According to this decision, which is
the first judicial deliverance of a state
court, touching the poiut involved,
the publication of a letter dictated
and typewritten containing libelous
matter is lewdly complete, although
its contents have not been made
kuown to any person other than the
stenographer. The court ruled:
"Neither the prevalence of any
business customs or methods nor the
pressure of business which compels
resort to stenographic assisteuce cau
make that le'Ml which is lllexral nor
MM that innocent which would
otherwise 1m actionable. Nor can
: the fact that the stenographer is un
der contractual or moral oblhjatiou
to regard all his employer's commuui
cations as confidential alter the rea
son of the matter."

the ruling publicity within the mean

a libelous publication within the law
has recently heen handed down by
the Maryland court of appeals, which
should lead persons in the state em

created something of a panic in Lon

The Bisbee Review savs that "two
unwritten laws have been in force in

no Chinamen are permitted in the
camp, and the second, that the prac

not tolerated. Both laws have been
strictly observed in the past."

Perry Belmont the Tucson Star
says: ".ferry Uelniout, the demo

pretty close contest, considering that
about 15.000 votes were polled." The
Star evidently knows,but intentionally
omitted mention of the fact that the
(fistrict is usually overwhelmingly
democratic, giving a democratic ma
jority in 1900 of over 4.000. Consid
ering all things a republican majority
of 344 is a pretty good sized one.

THE MONSTER ENGINE.
Arrives at Albuquerque Where it was
Viewed by Hundreds of People.
The biggest locomotive in the world
pulled a string of freight cars into
Albuquerque from the north this
morning. It is the monster engine.
No. 988. which has attracted much at
tention since its construction in the
great locomotive works in New York
a short time ago. It is being taken
to San Bernardino, by E. W. Griffith,
the traveling engineer, and will be
placed In the mountain service. Some
slight repairs were given the machine
today as it stood in the local round
house, and this evening it started
west with a fair sized drag. A de
tailed description of the monster en
gine was published in this paper
some time ago, for the benefit of
those who failed to see the item we
will again give a brief description be
low: The combined weight of the engine
and tender is 195 tons or 390,000
pounds. The boiler at the smallest
part is 77 inches in diameter, and 88
at the largest. It contains 413 tubes,
dimensions of each being 2 inches in
diameter and 18 feet 6 inches in
length. The fire box is 9 feet long by
78 inches in width, and the cylinders
which are of the tandem compound
type, are 17i aud 30 inches in diam
eter, and the stroke of the driving
rod is 34 inches. There are ten drive
wheels, each being 57 inches in diam
eter. The water tank on the tender
has a capacity for 7,000 gallons, and
the oil tank wiH hold 2,250 gallons.
Before the engine left the Topeka
shops its oil burner was taken out
and shipped to San Bernardino. Coal
is being used on the engine on its
westward trip. The locomotive was
seen here by Master Mechanic Turn

zens today. Albuquerque Citizen.

neither does the use of the knife or flesh destroying plaster cure, for local causes have nothing
to do with these germ-breeding plague spots. You might cut out every particle of the diseased
flesh and scraje the bone, but another sore would come. The germs or poison in the blood must
be destroyed, the stream of sluggish, polluted blood purified and made strong before the heal
ing process begins and the sore or ulcer can get well. S. S. S. is the only remedy known that
can and does accomplish this. It cleanses and purifies the circulation, and when new, rich blood
is carried through the little veins and arteries to the sore, it brings about a healthy healing
around the edges, and a permanent and thorough cure is soon effected. S. S. S. not only
expels all impurities, but works a complete and radical
change in the entire system by stimulating inactive organs,
toning up the nerves, increasing the appetite, and aiding
the digestion and assimilation of food, thus building up the
weak and wasted constitution. S. S. S. is strictly and
entirely a vegetable medicine, and no bad effects follow
its use, and for this reason it is better than Mercury and
Potash or other minerals, which not only ruin the stomach, but often produce most stubborn
and offensive sores themselves.
Prompt treatment should be given a sore or ulcer, no matter how small it may be,
