While Doctor McCoy Is Teaching
AND CORRECTING THE FALSE IMPRESSIONS THAT
ARE BROADCAST REGARDING THIS DISEASE.
He Will Enforce His Teaching by Giving All His
Treatment For Catarrh Free; That Is, Abso
lutely Without Pay of Any Kind.
, There has been so much writing and
talking and teaching by doctors and
specialists, so called, and men who are
cot doctors for that matter, about Catarrh;
lo much writing and talking and teaching,
that is misleading and has created a
false impression in the minds of the people,
that Dr. McCoy finds it necessary to
correct this false impression.
The treatment thut is universally used
all oyer the country for Catarrhal troubles
is the treatment that Dr. McCoy origi
nated and formulated in 1S83; the treat
ment, by the way, -which he vastly improved
in his later practice. The fact that it is
his earlier treatment tuat is universally
used for Catanh by doctors certainly en
titles him to speak with authority regard
lug this disease, and in the series of arti
cles (copyrighted) which will follow ho
will try to set the public, and the pro
fession as well, entirely right upon the

CATARRH AND ITS-CAUSES
DESCRIBED LE8S0H "HO. L
(Copyright, J. 0. McCoy.)
Anyone "who undertakes to tell of all tnc
harm that Catarrh works in the human sys
tem has a big task. This disease attackb
so many different organs and parts of the
body, and is mibtaken for so many other
diseases, that to explain to the people so
they can distinguish it from every other
disease is difficult.
I want to make plain that Catarrh results
f 10m a cold that won'tgetwell.frorfca cold
thatattacks the Inner lining of the tubes of
some organ or part of the bodyv
I also want to make it plain that Catarrh
has certain distinguishing tendencies and
characteristics that are never absent.
FIRST It produces a discharge which
may or may not dry into scabs.
SECOND It producesswelllngthatelther
narrows the passageways, as is seen when
it occurs in the nose, throat and bronchial
tubes, or closes them up entirely, as is
seen when it attacks the smaller tubes of
the body for Instance, the tube leading
from the throat to the ear, in which latter
case it causes Deafness and ringing noifces
in the head. "When it attacks the
tubes in the liver also it closes those and
prevents the bile from being poured out,
and the result is jaundice. "When It attacks
the small tubes in the kidneys it closes
these and destroys their action.
THIRD The tendency of the disease is to
form sore places by peeling off the covering
if not cured extend, causing destruction of
the parts beneath. This condition is fo'ind
more particularly when Catarrh attacks
the nose, throat, bronchial tubes and lungs,
and in the lungs its action pioduces cavities
-which arc ulcers.
FOURTH The discharges that result
fiom Catarrh weaken the 63'stcm, for they
drain the blood of its vital elements. It
is the discharge from Catarrh that causes
the sufferer to become languid and caMly
-worn out. When the lining of the stomach
is the seat of the catarrhal process the
discharge that results mixes -with the food,
coating i t over with a stickj material that
prevents the digestive Juices from acting
on it, and the consequence is indigestion
of a very obstinate character.
FIFTH The Catarrh sufferer never en
Joys robust health, for the disease, wherever
itniay be located, in tcrferes materially with
the Important functions of the part it in
vades. Now, as to the outside Influences that
cause or aggravate Catarrh. Catarrh is
most prevalent in sections where tiie pie
valllng winds blow from the land to the
Bea, for land breezes during dry spells
contain dust and irritating pai tides which
are taken in with the air breathed. The
dwellers on islands far away from the
mainlandseldomsutfer from Catarrh, which
accountsfor the Immunity to a great extent
of the dwellers In the British Islands. In
those parts of California close to the sea,
wherethcbreezesaiemostlyfrom the ocean,
Catarrh is rarely found, whllein other parts
of California, where there! 8 a great deal
of dust in the atmosphere, Catarrh is as
prevalent as it is in the central portions of
the United States.
"With so many elements acting to produce
Catarrh it would seem at first thought
to be useless to treat it. This is a mistake,
however, for no matter what the causta
may be that aggravate a sore mucus mem
brane and cause it to become affected by
Catarrh, if this same membrane be properly
treated tho inflamed parts will heal and
get well, and then those outside influences
which serve to keep the disease alive will
failtoworkany harmon the healed surface.

British Salisbury's Venezuelan

Should Purchase Cuba.
Michael Davitt, the great Home Rule
Irish member of railiament, is in Wash
ington, on his way home from California.
He is registered at WHlard'a. Mrs. Davitt's
health is very unsatisfactory, and he has
taken his family to the "Land of Sun
shine" for a two years' visit. Mrs. Davitt
Is a Californian.
"It is an Ideal climate for sick people
that you have in California," he said to
a Times icportcr this morning in the hotel
lobby. When we left London I was wear
ing a heavy suit and a gient ulster, and
at Oakland r could have taken everything
off. I hated to come away."
His valiant championing of the Irish
cause has made Mr. Davitt a student of
every other question even remotely sim
ilar In other countries. He has read and
thought of Crete and Greece and Cuba and
Hawaii He has studied England's policy
ln Africa and its bearing on the chess
game of European diplomacy. He is well
read and a keen thinker. . There Is a
caustic brilliancy In his conversation on
these matters that are near to his sym
pathies that makes him a marvelously
Of the arbitration treaty Mr. Davittsald
to The Times man.
"You have no diplomats in America. As
a resultof yourlsolatedinternational policy
and your wise refusal to interfere in the
affairs of continental nations you lia'-e not
trained tln-m Your statesmen seem to
devote all their energies to domestic policy
and legislation. You are not equal to Eng
land in this obbtruscf game of diplomatic
warfare. You might as well take a Saint
out of a desert hermitage and set him lying
against the devil.
"You will gam nothing by this treaty, and
you may lose much. What right has Eng
land to talk to your country of inter
national and universal peace, when she is
playing that bloody ijamc of her's with the
other European nations for supremacy in
Africa? W hat is there in her situation that
leads your people to believe she is denroub
of a reign of peace?
"That Heda expedition In Africa shelled
a peaceful native town and turned and
sacked it simply in the lust of conquest, in
the struggle for advantage over the other
invading nations. There wasno excuse nr
palliation. It was atrocious.
"England Is Uolated too; notas the United
States is, but because she has no friends
This treaty will mean to France and Ger
many and Russia not only that you are
England's allies, but that you sympathize
with her against them.
"Salisbury gave way to you on the Vene
zuelan question, throwingyou a diplomatic
sprat to catch a diplomatic whale. Eng
land has always been your enemy. She has
three times tried to destroy you. Why
shouldyou belleveshe hassuddenly changed
her heart entirely?
"And then, suppose the treaty were
passed. Where would you expect to get an
impartial tribunal to try your dispute?
Suppose ncaselnvolvingtheMonroe doctrine
(for without any sort of question, it is
meant by England that the Monroe doc
trine bhall be involved, no matter how
your Senate may amend the treaty), even
with the feeling against England in Eu
rope, which representative of monarchical
Europe, do you suppose would side with
the republican United States. In the
Venezuelan matter, all Europe was againht
you. In the Cuban matter all the diplomats,
if not all the people, are against you, and
with Spain. Don't take the treaty; you
will be sorry for It.
As to the Cuban rebellion, Mr. Davitt
believes that Spain will never quell it. He
draws the parallel between Crete and
Cuba, but points out the far greater cause
for sympahty we have with the struggling
people on our very shores. He believes that
Spain is so tired of the Cuban war that
she would take up every proposition that
the United States might make to her, that
offered her any semblance of graceful
retrc.it. All that she wants now is an
end of the matter. And yet she keeps up
her terrible campaign in Cuba. If the
United States docs not want to fight and
still wants Spain's atrocities to cease,
why don't you buy the island? You could
probably do it cheaply."
Mr. Davitt has spent some time in
Hawaii. He believes the United States
should annex the islands, and be gnes
the best of reasons that if we do not
somebody else will.
"There are only 12,000 whites al
together in the island," he said, "and
of these three-fourths arc Americans and
one-fourth British, against 25,000 Jap-
anese, 18,000 Chinese and 30,000 natives.
The great disparity in racial power nat
urally makes the republio feel insecure.
Particularly since the Japauese-Chhiese
war the Japanese in the island have be
come, I won't say aggressive, but they
talk very tall.
"There are three or four Japanese papers
printed in Japanese, and they are all the
time urging the annexation of the islands
to Japan. They have followed very closely
the efforts of the whites to induce the
United States to admit Hawaii, and they
have seen that so far America has seemed
to repulse .these efforts. The British in
Honolulu have also been actively engaged
in the interests of their country. They arc
making use of the strong argument that
this country would not have the Islands
as a gift.
"I have seen it advanced as an argument
against annexation that it would cost a
great deal of money to run tho Islands. It
fa an erroneous idea. They are very fruit
ful. They grow almost everything. As
you know, their sugar Interests are uni-
versaly valuable. I am very confident that
the lateat wealth of the islands would en
able this country to run them without a -I
penny of expenditure.
"The matter eems to me to sum itself up
Into this situation: You. would not and
could not allow Japan to take thuislands.
rouwou oppose Mepobt of war any

KOCH'S PHTHISIS TREATMENT.
His German Colleagues Not Yet Pre
pared to Fully Indorse It.
Mr. Dean Mason, deputy consul general at
Frankfort on the Maine, lias forwarded to
tho State Department a condensed, but
complete account of Prof. Koch's new
thereapeutio method of treatment for
phthisis. After a number of attempts to
cause the adoption of the unchanged living,
or even dead, bacterle; that were no more
successful than the efforts of other ex
perimentors, Dr. Koch directed his efforts
to the extraction of such component parts
of the hacti'nurnas could be absorbed. Tr.ese
efforts resulted in the discovery of "tuber
cullne," a substance which has the valuable
quality of producing characteristic, symp
toms when injected In extremely small
quantities, and thus render It possible to
detect the disease in its earliest stages
when It can be most easily cured.
Dr. Koch inblsts that the value of tuner
culinc for purposes of diagnosis has only
been confirmed by time, and cnlls atten
tion to the fact thatltts in geucral use
for diagnosis in cases of phthisis, affecting
cattle. The use of the preparation, as
advised by Dr. Koch, is extremely simple.
It Is injected in the back hypodermlcaUy
In the same manner as the original tuher
cullne. Thetrcatmpntof the malady should
not be attempted when the illness lias
reached a too advanced stage. Such
small dof.es are given at first that no im
portant immunization is to be expected;
it is ouly when doses of from one-half to
one milligram are used tthat the un
mistakable effects of the immunization are
shown. Consequently, an invalid, whose
condition indicates that he has only a
few months to Ifvc, can derive no benefit
from the treatment.
The attitude assumed by medical au
thorities In Germany is extremely con
servative. Great lnteiest has l'Cen moused
and it is evident that sanguine anticipa
tions aic entertained, but the article of
Dr. Koch is not considered sufficiently
precise or exhaustive to establish the cura
tive Importance of the new remedy. The
general consensus of medical opinion does
not wem to favor the use of the new
remedy in general practice until further
investigation by leading specialists shall
have determined Its precise effects.

Four million dollars was withdrawn
yesterday for shipment today on the
various steamers to Europe. This must
make the total for the week $7,000,000
or more. The Treasury specie reserve is
$150,000,000, and such a withdrawal
makes a very small impression on the
total. If the market were booming and
everybody were happy, probably there
would be no effect noticeable. In a hebl
tating and narrow market, however, it is
simply another fact which further dis
turbs the speculative sentiment anil it
makes the bears confident. There seems
prospect of still further and larger gold
shipments next week.
It is sxather useless to try to describe
such a formless and JInsignificant affair
as yesterday s market was. Increased
anxiety as to the date at which the
Senate will take up the tariff bill and as
to the character of the measoreitself when
it finally emerges from the Senate, the
gold shipments, bad business conditions,
generally, give investors no encouragement
to put out their money. The bears take
advantage of all these matters and prices
go down. Such is about the story of a
day like yesterday.
It was a report in New York yesterday
that the sugar trust has loaned the elty
of New York $3,000,000. Keeping up with
the movements in Sugar is a pretty tough
problem. Sugar was strong yesterday, while
all the rest of the market was off. Youmay
hear all kinds of gossip with regard to the
Sugar people, of any complexion that you
like or do not like. The New York World
has been telling the story that Mr Theodore
Havemeyer was not long on Sugar at his
death, and that the strength of Sugar since
his death has been due to a large extent
to the covering of a contract. The World
who profess to have Inside information, be
lieve that the end of it all will be the
change of the DIngley bill to the entiresatis
factlon or the trust. Cammack is one of
It Is suggested, however, that if thein
sldersfeel so strong aboutthe tariff andon
sugar, they are acting very strangely
when they Ptlll sell the stock of the com
pany managed exclusively by themselves
and invest their fortunes in real estate
when Sugar is paying 12 per cent. As
against the opinion of those who feel con
fident about the Senate's action, there are
others who arc very sure that nothing bet
ter than the DIngley bill will be obtained
One prominent Senator says he intends to
move in the Senate that the differential
on refined sugar be taken off altogether,
and inat he believes such a motion would
have no troublein getting through
The iew that seems most reasonable
to many shrewd market people who have
no irons in the fire Is that the stock will
really go off fceveral points very shortly
before it begins to go up again In antici
pation of the dividends a few weeks from
this time. It is worth while bearing
injnind that the sugar peoplealwavs man
age to have the price of their stock up
within a point or two of 120 when the
dividend is due.
The regular quarterly dividend of 1 1-2
per cent on gas will probably be declared

probably be better yet immediately, and

Dow, Jortes&Co say of Western "Union:
People who have watched Western Union
closely tay that they are satisfied that
Baltimore and Ohio stock has been sold.
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com
pany's original holding has been reduced as
time loans have matured and the collateral
has been sold. When the Western Union
stock was pledged for Baltimore and Ohio,
necessities, it was selling in the neighbor
nood of 90. and 75 is paid to have been
borrowed on it, some say 72. There baa
been a good deal of pressure brought to
bear to save the Baltimore and Ohio what
equity it pos-essedin Western Union stock,
but the receivers decline to make any state
ment in regard to what they have done in
the matter. The decline in Western Union
has wiped out a large percentage of the
railroad company's qquity. Stock has
been supplied from some source: if it has
not come from Baltimore and Ohio.
President E. D. Carley, of the Monetary
Trust, has this to say of the market:
The bears seem to have sold to a posi
tive finish. Their efforts are feeble and
almost foolish. I had a conference with
two prominentbearsand they confess that
there is no profit In their 6tiuggle. It
seems impossible that the market should
do otherwise than begin an upward creep
ing movement pretty soon.
I hear the rumor that there is a differ
ence of opinion in the management of the

advices out to sell Tobacco and this would
seem to be the safe course.

the Great Northern Alliance it has aroused
is a matter of Interest to the street.
St Paul is likely to anticipate the
rather more favorable earnings for the
fourth week of April, which will come
out on Monday next
R. G. Dun's review will say today:
"In spite of moderate Improvement in
most of the great industries, business is
disappointing. Expectations of speedy end
of war in Europe through Turkish victory
have helped to depress grain. Demands of
Austria and China have caused exports of
$0,500,000 gold. Merchandise imports are
greatly increased, and finnl action of Con
gress on the revenue question seems more
remote. Floods at the West continue and
the new tarlfr proposed for Canada is
thought likely to affect trade with that
country to some extent
"Of the great industries the iron and
steel manufacturer is slower in advancing
now, as It was much the quicker in the
"Failures for the week have been 237
against 238 last year.''
Bradstreet's today will say: "The more
conspicuous features of trade are less sat
Ipfactory, Including moderate reactions in
prices of staples, a falling off in the vol
ume of transactions in various tones, con
tinued slow collections and less favorable
conditions in the iron, steel, cotton and
some other industries. Thepricemoveinent
furnish little basis for special encourage
ment, the only advances on generally recog
nized conditions, being those for pork and
cotton. There Is a moderate increase in
the commercial death rate, there being
244 business failures throughoutthe United
States this week, compared with 216 last
week and 254 a year ago.''

HAWAII MOST BE PROTECTED
If Japan Threatens Her the Uiite4
States SkouM Jiterfere.
A PrornJoent Senator Says Talc
Country Ua Assumed n Ke-poa8i- -bJHty
"Which Must Be Met.
"If it is true that the Japanese gov
ernment has ordered a ship of war ts
Bawaii, to enforce the landing of Japan
ese Immigrants, against the consent of tha
little republic, there need be no fear ol
the abrogation of the Bawalian reciprocity
treaty by this Congress."
So said a prominent Senator at the Cap
itol yesterday? a Senator whose con
servatism has always made him a gcodl
judge of existing conditions in. the "Upper
House" of Congress.
"I am not," he continued, "a Jingo. I
do not believe in jingoism, nor do I believe
that jingoismlbin any way allied to patriot
ism, but I do believe in a wf&eand patri
otic policy. The United States has a duty
to perform toward this little Island re
public "We have assumed this duty volun
tarily, and the responsibility is of cur own
choosing "We have declined, so far. to
either annex the islands or establish a
protectorate "We have, nevertheless, no
tified the world that no one else shall
molest or make these people afraid.
"If it be now true that Japan, grown
powerful in recentyears, seeks to intimi
date this weak and absolutely defense
less government, we have bnt one course
that we as an honorable nation ean pursue-
Our ships .of war must also appear In
the harbor of Honolulu, and the American
flag must be the sign by which tnc Japa
nese shall recognize that the protest of
Hawaii is to be given consideration.
"We cannot do less than this, and pend
ing the settlement of this trouble I pre
dict there will be no interference with
the relations now existing between tha
United States and her protege."
