Physicians Recommend Castoria
PJ?STORIA has met with pronounced favor on the part of physicians, pharma
^ oeutioal societies and medioal authorities. It is used by physiciane with
results most gratifying. The extended use of Oastoria is unquestionably th-?
result of three facts! First?The indisputable evidence that it is harmless?
Second?That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves? but assimi?
lates the food s Third?It is an agreeable and perfeot substitute for Castor Oil
It is absolutely safe, It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcoti?
and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's
Cordial, etc, This is a good deal, for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how?
ever, is to expose danger and record the means of advancing health,. The day
for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To
our knowledge, Oastoria is a remedy whioh produces composure and health, by
regulating the system?not by stupefying it?and our readers are entitled to

NOT YET DECIDED
Trouble is Between Weem
and People's Steamboat
Judge Waddill. ot the United States
District Court, has not vet rendered his
opinion In tho injunction proceedings In
the Rappahannock River steamboat case,
argued before him on Thursday, The
cose is a proceeding in equity, in which
:he Weems Steamboat Company, of
Fredericksburg and Baltimore, seeks to
enjoin the People's Steamboat Company
from using ' Its docks and piers. Tho
People's Steamboat Company wore re?
quired to show causo why a temporary
injunction should not Ilo, restraining
them from the use or occupancy of tho
piers of the Weems company.
, The two Unes of steamers ply along
the Rappahannocii River, and have been
engaged In a war of comp?tition In rates
and service for months. The Weems
company Is nearly a century old, while
the defendant In the action Is a new com?
pany but recently formed.
There are thlrty-ono wharves along the
river at which tho two companies touch.
Of this number the Woema company sots
up the claim that It owns five In fee sim?
ple and leases eight others. It contends
that the People's company, In using their
docks against their will and over their
protest, are trespassers, and should be
roatrolnod, It further claims that after
the tPooplo's company had reasonable
notice that these wharvos were private
property, and did not then desist from
using them, they were trespassing.
The. defendant, on the other hand,
olalms that these wharves aro publlo
wharves, ond that they have been so
used for many years. They further con?
tend that Injunction or equity proceed?
ings are an extraordinary remedy, not tn
be resorted to until other remedies havo
proved Inadequate to. seoure tho' rights
alleged. It Is then claimed that the
WeemB Steamboat Company,has an.ade?
quato remedy In an notion at common
law, and that until they have brought
such action and failed to maintain their
contentions there thoy have no right to
resort to equity proceedings.
The court heard the argument, took
the ease under advisement, and will de?
liver an opinion Inter,

There Is hardly a probability of a
quorum of either house of the General

until to-day, Yet almost every member
of both houses knew' there would not be
enough members present to transact bua-,

od on by Senate, to-<Jay, and if passed
by both houses, may Iwivo 'the effect!
of keeping a quorum hereafter. The plan!
is to have a call of tho house If a point
of no quorum is made. That will hardly
be attempted to-day, but on Monday or
Tuesday somo steps are almost sure to V*
taken to Insure the presence of a majori?
ty of members of the two houses,.
The proposition In the Ople resolution
to defer tho date of the recoss Is but a
recognition of the fact that the General
Assembly cannot get '? away before thai
time without neglecting or leaving ?un?

to tho wholo State. The cutting off' of
new bills as proposed In the resolution
will enable the committees to get through ,
what Is before them, and with sessions
beginning at 10 A. M., instead of noon,
the two houses will sit"long enough to
