Doctor McCoy Has a Word to

Personal Experience Now the Time When that
Personal Experience Can Be Had at Nominal

There always have been Doubting Thom

Tlioraaws. There arc Doubbr, TliomnRes
In "Washington, plenty of them, as there are
in every other city ana every town through
out the whole world.
"When Doctor McCoy announced his dis
covery for the cure or deafness, he expected
doubt. He knew that It wa& necessary for
him to give proof on prooC to cure, not in
scores of cases only, but in hundreds and
thousands of cates before these Doubting
Thoinates would be convinced.
The whole world, broadly speaking, has
acknowledged his masterly feklll, and has
accepted, because of the tremendous
weight of evidence, the fact that his treat
ment does restore the lost hearing.
But there are those ana there are many

"My right ear was stone deaf.
"With it I could not hear one sound,
never mind how loud.
"My left ear was quite deaf.
"After being under treatment sometime,
my hearing returned to me suddenly.
Last Sunday I heard with my right car,
the ear that had bean stone deaf, the tick
ing of my watch, and that ear la now more
acute than the left.
My dearness began in my left ear
ten years ago and, growing worse grad
ually. In time it extended to the right ear.
My right car became deaf very rapidly
and in a short while stopped up luitirely
and lost all sense of sound.
"My deafness was a -constant source
or annoyance to me, I oth in business and
social matters. It was difficult for me to
wait upon customers, embarraw-eil me In
trying to converse with my friends. It
was very hard to understand when spoken
to and I was always asking people to
ropcat, and then to add to my discomfort
there was a rumbling noise in my head that
at tlmesalmost drove me wild.
"The unnatural noise in my head has
been stopped and I hear again distinctly.'

Iu an official report to Capt. C. F. Shoe
maker, chief o the revenue cutter service,
Capt C. L. Ilooper, commanding the
Bering Sua fleet, gives corroborative evi
dence of the rich finds In the Klondike
region. Capt. Hooper's report is dated
Uiialauka, .luly 5. Be bays:
"The Eteamer Excelsior arrived on tho
cvenluir vit the -1th from St. Michael's, and
leaves this evening for 3an Francbco The
Excel.Mor has on board about Torty miners
from the Yukon district, and about $500,-
000 in bullion. She brings wonderful ac
counts of rich discoveries in the Klon
dike, or ileindcer Hiver, where fortunes
arc being made in a few weeks. Ac
cording to these reports nothing has ever
bfcen discovered on the continent of Amer
ica approaching it In richness.
'The Klondike is a tributary or the
Yukon, and is wholly within Canadian ter
ritory. Gold was discovered last fall, and
during tho winter attracted miners from
all directions. It is said that over 2,000
men are located at Dawson, the principal
town, while Circle City, Forty Mile and
other places are nearly deserted. Owing
to tills euilden influx of people, provisions
were high, but, ho far as I can learn, there
was no actual suffering.

&LASK&K DOCKS CROWDED
A. Subport of Entry Created to Ac
The Treasury Department Author
izes British SteamerH to Lund at
Dyeu, :North of Juneuu.
The gold fever has resulted In the crea
tion of a sub port of entry at Alaska to
enable British vcel-s to train-port passen
gers to the gold fields. This was brougnt
about by in application made to the Treas
ury Department for permission forCanadian
vessels to enter at Dyea, Alaska, and laud
passengeit and baggage there.
Dyea is about fifty miles north of
Juneiu, and it Is desired to save pnssea
gers the annoyance of disembarking at
Juneau and awaiting another steamer for
Dyea, the head of navigation on this route
to the Yukon frontier. If this applica
tion should be granted, li would be ncccs
saxy In all case"' ot vessels clearing Tor Dvea
to give a spi c.'oJ permit to the deputy at
Juuenu In the case of each vessel. In
order to obviate this difficulty, the Secre
tary of thv Treasury has constituted Dyea a
sub-port of entry In the District or Alaska.
This action is taken under the authority
of the act of March 1G, 1896, which au
thorizes the Secretary to establish sub
ports at such places in Alaskaa as he may
deem proper Some objection was made
by Representatives from the Pacific coast
to the granting of the application to per
mit Canadian vcsseln to pioceed to Dyea,
but on full consideration of the question it
was thought advisable by the Secretary to
exercise the right clearly given him by
statute to make Dyea a subport, thus re
lieving i assengers from the annoyance of
disembarking at Juneau and awaiting
other means of tiansportation to Dyea.
GAS ADDICICS KW VEXTUHES.
lie launches a Klondike Company
Upon the ?trket.
New York, July 2.1. J. Edward Addlcks.
belter known as "Gas'' Addlcks, whose
meteoric but unprofitable operations in gas
stock will be recnlled, has lately been
attacked by the Klondike mining agitation,
and now figures as thepiesidcntof a com
pany fonr.ed to explore and develop the
gold fields of British Columbia.
Politically Mr. Addicks has twice been
defeated in the Senatorial campaigns of
Delaware He Is now president of the
Yukon-CarlbooBritlsh Columbia Gold Min
ing Development Company, with a capital
of $5,000,000. "Gas' Addicks asks the
public to buy at $1 per share.
Exploring parties in the region where
gold has been discovered will be sent out,
fully equipped, from time to time, in charge
of experienced mining engineers. The dis
tricts Into which the company's agents
will penetrate include the Cariboo and
Klondike section"., at the headwaters of
the Yukon River. Every party which leaves
the United Stales will be furnished with
every means for the discovery and develop
ment of the ore, so Addicks says.
Indian Head Zephyrs.
There are hundreds of people who sit
around in the evening after on excessively
hot day In town and wish for cool breezes
and comfort, as if there was not a place
at hand where both these can be had.
That isjust what the trips to Indian Head
on the Macalcster furnish, though. A
ride on the majestic Potomac of more
than four hours cannot help but brace
one up, and the beauty of the scene and
the music makes up the pleasurable part
of the sail. Both going and returning
stops are made at Marshall Hall: the priv
ilege of the grounds Is accorded those who
caic to take advantage of them. Tnnels
allowed fora few dances while the steamer
is making the extra run to the Head.
These are eminently the most popular trir.s
that go out of the dfy. A boon for the
gentlemen is the barber shop on the boat.

account in tliib market was again stioiui
tills morning, when, for the first time
this week, London houses on balance were
buyers ot a moderate amount of stock
Co far the foreign purchases proving an
additional stimulus to prices, local opera

and after a very strong opening the
market underwent a general reaction,
though the recessions were as a rule frac

hood of the passage of the compromise

of gold by tomorrow's steamships will

was taken from the subtreasury today, so

The market was in the main strong yes
tciday, tlie trust stocks and the grangers
showing excellent advances up to and at
the clo.o. The bullish tone is thought by
some to be the result of the near ending
or the tariff fight and supposedly favor
able natural conditions, but there Is a
strong belief among a generally better In
formed crowd that there is tremendous
wool buying and rank manipulation, the
resultof which can be anything but healthy
and lasting advance.
Two or three brokers tell me of this,
but Mr. C .rley sends me this statement,
which, besides giving the fact, touches on
other matters of interest. It will be inter
esting to note how near Mr. Carley Is to
Syndicates are putting up the market
with a furious erfort, and will probably
try to do bo during the short session of
Saturday Some time Saturday or Mon
day they will try to sell more stocks
and the market will give way under the
sale. Sugar will be put up tempestuously
and othei stocks will be sold during the
advance of Sugar. Then the whole market
-will have a general reaction, the extent of
which will depend upon some develop
ments which wc will show up during the
next few days.
The Sugar Trust yesterday advanced the
price of .soft refined sugar, grade 1, 10 and
12, 1-16 cent.
Mr. ireene: supposed to be acting still
for the Rockefeller Interests, as he was un
questionably two weeks ago, on the sugar
spurt, was bidding the market up very
adroitly yesterday without guying any
thing. Wilson and Wells bought 2,000
Sugar. They are Standard Oil people.
S. A. "Walsh took all the Sugar at 1-1 4 yes
lei day that he could get. The insiders
were certainly buying Sugar &ctiveiy.
There .s.eema the liest of reasonsf or believing
that Sugar will have a strong advance
today, and if it can be bought at y ester
day 'u closing figures it looks to be very
nearly a sure thing.
Gas and Tobacco were both strong with
Sugar yesterday, though Gas did not
quite beep up to Thursday's figures. Hous
mnn A Content, supposedly working for
the pool, bought and put up Tobacco.
The stock looks well for further advance
this morning. Gov. Flower predicted two
years ago that the reorganization scheme
would put the Gas to par and that point
is all but reached. Everything seems
favorable to its passing 100. However,
100 has been a tough number for Gas
In times past. A pood many people lost
money when It reached 98 before.
It cannot quite be said as yet Just whatr
effect the decision against General Klec
trl't In the United States court or appeals
In New York will have. Dow, Joued&Co.
"People cIofc to the management of I he
Geneial Rlectrlc Company say the decision
in the trolley arm patent Just rendered by
tlie United States circuit cou-t of appeals Is
of no consequence, for the reason that, the
ngieemf-nt between the General Electric
Company and the Westlnghouse for royal
ties is not affected thereby, and for the
fuill.er reason that the patent hai only
about a year to run. It tU-ea not apply
U the underground trolley."
Burlington and Rock Island had a large
advance- yesterday. Doth of these stcoks
are being pushed. On Thursday also this
advance was large. Good stories are put
out about their condition nnd prospectK,
but these hnve very little to do with tho
The Town Topics people say: Of the
grangers nothing too good can b said.
Rock Island will be around 00, Burlington
and Qulncv hugging par and St Paul at
100 before September 15. How, Joue &
Co. arc of much. the same opinion.
M K. T. is a favorite.
The Xew York Times says: "American
Spirits arc again a subject of much dis
cussion In Wall street. This time most
nf the talk Is bullish. The popular theory
Is that theie are soon to be changes In
the management of the company, which
will involve the placing ot several new nnd
strong namci lu the directory. That the
business rccoid or the American Spirits
Company lu the past has been bad la not
denied, but there Is now developing a feel
ing In the street that by the aid of tarifr
patronage and with a shake-up among the
men who have hcietofore controlled Whisky
Tiust affairs, there will be belter things
heard from the'eompany In the future than
there have been in the pas.t."
Bradstrccfs today will say:
The widespread confidence that there
will be a marked revival In general trade
In the fall continues to grow and with It
material evidence that It is well founded.
The world'H wheat crop outlook con
tinues to favor the United States much as
It did eighteen years ago. The outlook Is
that Russia alone or all other wheat
exporters will be able to compete with
the United States The advance is more
than 20 cents a bushel compared with a
year ago, In the face of a domestic wheat
crop probably 100,000,000 bushels larger
than last year, and the prospect is for a
continued higher level for quotations.
Dun's weekly review of trade will say:
The end ot uncertainty regarding dut'es
on Imports gives great confidence alike
to those who have opposed and those who
have favored the change. The great
strength In stocks, paiticularly In thotc
of the Granger list, reflects assurance
ot heavy crops The remarkable rise
in wheat notwithstanding that assurance
is based on heavy buying for export and
belief that the To reign demand will be large.
To theEu must be added another element
of confidence scarcely observed a week
ago. The heavy Increase In receipts of
pold, whether from one side or the A laska
border or thu other swells deposits at
the mints and in the banks or ih.s country
and if the yield from new regions answers
cuirentexpectatlonsit may have an influence
akin to that of gold discoveries in Cali
fornia The one retarding force, the
strike or the coal miners, has caused closing
or a few manufacturing works for want ot
fuel, but negotiations for settlement are
still pushed with hope.
The wheat market is the sensation ot
the month. Since July 2 the price has
risen 12 cents by Wednesday, when a
reaction of four cents occurred.
Coin exports aie still heavy, 0,635,305
bushels In July, against 2,421,089 last
year, which, pciliap, icflccts more cer
tainly that the wheat movement the
actual conditions abroad. Both beciusn
of the seaeon and because of ponding
action on the tariff, indnstii.il operations
are waiting, and yet with an Improvement
which, under the ciicumstances, is signif
icant. The textllelndustrieshavc lostno ground,
as the curtailment ot production In cotton
for a time Is really a gain. The demands
for woolens increase as to low and medium
grades, with reported large S3les at
advances of 5 to 10 per cent over last
There were 220 business failures re
ported throughout the United States this
week, against 247 last week and 280 In
the week a year ago.
