from dull headaches, accompanied by

Doctor McCoy's treatment has given me
complete roller from the headache? and
from the distressing, unnatural noises,
ond iry hearing has been completely re
stored 'I also, when I Went to Doctor McCoy,
had been troubled with a catarrhal condi

me to hawk and spit continually. In the
morning I would have a bad tai-te In the
mouth, -and a gagging sensation My -sleep
was not refreshing, aud I would -wake in

Improvement in my general health ha
been wonderful, as well as the restoration

GENERAL STREET ELECTED
Chosen Commander-in-Chief of ilic
Union Veteran Lesion.
Convention at Springfield Disre
gards Gen. Dlllou'f, Charge.
End of a X.ung Contest.
Gen. HarJow L. Street, commander of
John A. .Logan Camp, No. 2, Union Vet
erans' Union , and pi ominent in Grand Ar my
circles in this city, was yesterday elected
commander-in-chief of the national organ
ization of theUnion Veterans'' Union, which
has been in session the past three days
at Springfield, Ohio. ,
"While Gen. Street's election to this im
portant position is in itself pleasing to his
friends in this city, it is doubly interest
ing because it marks theend for a time at
least of a quarrel which began seven years
ago, when Gen. M. A Dillon, of this city,
Impeached the war record of Gen. Street.
Since that time the two men have con
ducted a very orderly, but very bitter,
fight in the camps of the local Union Vet
erans' Union. Charges and counter-charges
have been made ever since Gen. Dillon
first charged, In August' of 1890. that
Gen. Street's war record was not what it
should have been. Gen. Streetlmmedlately
secured affidavits and sworn s'atements
front prominent generals, and secured a
certificate from the War Department atr
testing his honorable career. Since then
things have not been running easily In the
District union, and only a week ago Gen.
Dillon charged that Gen. Street and sev
eral others had been suspended from the
order.
These changes, which caused much com
ment at the time, were repeatedin the con
vention by Gen. Dillon, but were thrown
out Gen. Dillon was chairman of the
committee on credentials, and he refused
to recommend that Street and the other
"Washington delegates be seated. Col
Strattou, another "Washington delegate,
then moved that they be seated, and the
motion being carried, Gen. Dillon at once
resigned As be was tjie only opposing
candidate for commander-ln-chb-f, Gen
Street had a walk-over for the election.
The convention practically ended yester
day, but Gen Street will not return home
until the latter part of next week. He

cepitoa when he arrives, u he has many
He has extended the opportunity in order
that all might have ample opportunity
to take advantage of it, and he has
readied the point where, if for no other

office facilities and his time, It would

rate, which he has so long given to the
people of "Washington.

Thomas Lloyd, a Former Em

STOLE THE VOLUMES TO SELL
Discharged for Intemperate Habits,
He Visited the Library requeut
Jy Carried the Boolcs A-way Under
His Coat A Lawyer mid Son of u
Former Hoa.se Clerlr.
Thomas W. Lloyd, aged Torty-one, well
dressed, educated, and the son of a man
op.ee well-known to statesmen and poli
ticians, was arrested jestorduy by Capitol
Detective Slnnott for stealing books
from the law library at the Capitol. It
was not because Llojd -wanted the vol
ume wholli for the purpose of eulurglng
his library, for he Is now a lawyer, but
the more likely reason is that he took
the books for, tbe purposo of selling
them as several were yesterday recovered
by Detective Slnnott from a tecoud
hnnd book store, where Llojd had sold
them for a Email sum.
A number or years ago Llojd's father
was for several successive sessions chief
clerk, and again reading clerk of the
House of Representatives. He was well
known In AVashlngton. For a number of
years also ThomaB "W. Lloyd, his ton, has
held a position in the miscellaneous de
partment of the Congressional Library,
lie lm?, however, been rather dissipated
In his habits and addicted to drink, and
frequently played the races. Uecuuse Li
brarian Srofford had known nis father he
tolerated the young man's actions, but
jeproaehed him. Under the new librarian,
however, Llojd's career was soon cut
short,. A few sprees were overlooked, and
then his iclgnatlon was asked for by
Librarian Young.
Thl was about a month ago, and his ef
forts tu get a reinstatement failed Since
that time he has nearly every day visited
the law library, wh'ch laon the groundfloor
of the Capitol.
Shortly after books began to be missed,
No one could tell where they were. There
are no persons save members of both Houm.s
of Congress, heads of departments and
a few o' her by permission, allowed to take
books from the library. Lloyd -.vas not
one of these. In all about forty books have
gone astray since the beginning or the ex
tra cession or Congress, but it Is, notcharged
that Lloyd has secured all or them Last
Wednesday a week ago, he came Into the
reading-room and aked for "Schouter on
Domestic P.elaticns," fifth edition.
This was procured for him by Acting
Librarian John N. Wilkinson, the oldest
employe of the library. That night when
the bookb were puton theshelves thnt vol
ume was found to be missing.
The next day "Phillips on Mechanics'
Liens" whkh Lloyd called for, disap
peared in the same manner.
Mr. 'Wilkinson thought who hnd called
for the looks and remembered Lloyd. Then
he watched him. Succeeding days he
came in, but no books were missed, ns
the library was crowded. Yesterday Lloyd
entered and asked for two Pennsylvania
reports, "Clark on Criminal Law," and
"Mackey's District of Columbia Re
ports." In a few moments he went out
and the latter book went with him. care
fully tucked away under his vest, so that
Lloyd looked as if he had just partaken
of a sumptuous dinneror have been blown
up by a pneumatic pump.
Mr. Wilkinson followed him, and directed
his son. who works In the Library, to go
for Detective Slunott, and the latter over
took Lloyd in the Capitol grounds just as
he had taken the volume from under his
est and carried it under his arm.
He finally admitted halng taken the
two other books and others, which he had
sold.
Detectives Slnnott and Horne searched
Lloyd's rooms, at No. 17 C streot, and
found several other books which he had
stolen.
Lloyd was locked up in No. 0 station, and
refused to say a word upon the subject-
Ills case will come up In court today.
LEGION OF HONOR RECEIVER.
Mr. F"Ioyd Corrects a Statement
Abont the Knights of Honor.
Mr nenry Floyd, the grand dictator of
the local branch of Knights ot Honor, de
sires to correct through the columns ot The
Times the statement which appeared in a
press dUpatch to the efect that a receiver
for the ordsr had been applied for through
Chancellor Pitney, of Jersey City, N J.
From Mr. Floyr.'s Statement it appear
that the dispatch relates to the Legion of
Honor cf America, and not to the Knights
of Honor.
The New York papers bear Mr Flovdout
In his correction concerning the above
mentioned dispatch, and bis statement, are
herewith given-.
It appears that the Legion of Hongr
asked the New Jersey court for a re
celver in order to test the legality or the
by-laws of that association, which have
been in operation for a year, and not be
cause the association was insolvent. The
bill also asked that the association be en
joined fiom separating its members in
classes.
The bill is returnable In the United
States court at Boston September 7.

remuneration.
The plaintiff further sets out that

A general and rapid decline was In
progress in the stock market during the
greater part of the day. The market de
velop3dltHiuostpr'jnounced weakness rather
singularly also, on the first day In ,vhich
foreign houses were considerable buyers
of wuritles, their purchases extending Into
a Jiumbei of different stocks. "While the
dcllnc In the market was still clearly
referable to the technical conditions of
speculation, the traders found a motive
for Increased aggress' veness In further re
ports of damage to both the spring wheat
and corn crops through unseasonable weath
er In the central, Western und northwestern
States 'Jheso reports poured In from
Chicago, and were most Industriously dls-i-cmluntcd
throughout,the street.
To some extent the reports of damage
to the corn crop were confirmed by the
Government weather maps, as tempera
tures below 60 degrees were noted through
out tne central West, indicating weather
undoubtedly too cold to favor the rapid
growth ot corn and any delay now in
creases the danger of Injury through
froft. An advance or over 6 cents a
bushel In wheal reflected both the re
Irts of damage In the spring wheat
States and "also a remarkable advance
on the Liverpool market Tor that cereal.
The disetuslon In regard to the crops
gave the granger shares the niost promi
nent place in the market and the gross
declines In those stocks and la the hareg
or the corn-carrying roads exceeded onj
point, but partial recoveries were scored
iu the last hour of business. tThe excite
ment In the grain market detracted from
ili activity of the dealings In stocks, but
a fair day's business was nevertheless
effected. , .,
liAhe New Yoik market thetSpptember
wheat option reached the cjapslcal figure
of $1 a bushel, and In the cash grain
markets of the West thp samf price was
reported. The market oupjjde of the

It seems probublethat prices in the stock
market have touched low for the present
All day jesterdayou rumors of bad wheat
and corn yields, railroad stocks were weak
and declining, and Sugar, for no particular
reason, went down rapidly to 14G 7-8
Eveiybody is hopeful that today there will
be a stroug reaction, and the evidences aie
good that such will be the case. Speculative
excitement was principally In the grain
market yecterday. The September option
for wheat went up with a rush In New
York to beyond $1.00, and the Chicago and
the European markets werje.wlld On the
curb wheat In Chicago was 95 5-8 at 4.
o'clock. Corn was also stronger. This
feature of the situation continued to be, as
for several days past, a causefor hesitation
In the general stock market, and for the
bearish attitude of traders there.
As for thp particular case of Sugar
everything is in favor or un immediate
rally, and neaily eerybody who Is specu
lating In the stock of the trust will" buy
today. Rumors continue that an extra
dividend will be declared for the disposi
tion of some of the large surplus, and this,
of course, mast have its effect on the price
of the stock. Tho bears have now given
lip their cffoits to show the impossible to
be the fact -with regard to the tariff, and
it is generally conceded that the Sugar
schedule is immensely favorable to tho
trusts.
Dow, Jones & Co. say of Sugar: The
predictions that Sugar weuld sell ut 150
have been fulfilled, and the people who
talked 150 for it when that seemed to
be an impossibility are confident that it
"Will sell close to 200 before long. All
sorts of rumois are current in regard to
the next dividend, which should be de
clared some time next month. It is prob
ably safe to say that nobody knows at
present what the dividend will be, and
Mr. Havemcyer's absence in Europe may
prevent any other action than tho declara
tion of the regular 3 per cent, although
Mr. Havemeyer may return in time to
participate in the directors' meeting. That
some distribution of a part of tho surplus
will be made in the next twelve months
is believed to be certain, but whether it
will take the form of Increased quarterly
"dividends or an extra dividend In u lump
sum, no one is. probably, yet in a posi
tion to definitely state.
All that is positively known is tint the
company has r. very large surplus, which
will bo materially increased by the sales
ot refined sugar made from the enor
mous quantities of raw sugars imported
under the duties of tue "Wilson bill. This
surplus, moreover, is in cash and is prob
ably the largest tangible surplus which
any Wall strectcompany has ever possessed.'
Standard Oil could not properly be called
a Wall Ltreet company. Big railroad sur
plusos have generally been on paper and
absolutely unavailable, except as they
furnished an opportunity to issue collat
eral tiuat bonds or fresh btock.
The amount of Sugar held in WalUtrcet
at the present Urns Is a large factor in the
problem. It Is said that not since the re
organization tt the trust has there been
so little floating stock. The number uf
slimes of Sugur common, which is not
large, becomes very easily handled under
such conditions as tho present, when im
mense nmount-'i have been withdrawn for
Investment accounts. It Is under these
conditions that the great demand for
Sugar must force up the prioas.

interested in the soft-dial negotiations
The business outlook for Reading Is most
foruh'.c. It is said that tho Reading
freight tonnage In July increased about
100,000 tons over 1896.

The London I'all-Mall Gazette contrasts

Bradstrcet's today will say: Special
telegraniB from trade centers throughout

perity or the farmer, due to higher prices
ror almost all agricultural produce still
in his hands, and point to a continuation
or the demand which has been conspicuous

United states this week, against 214 last
week, 264 a year ago and 192 two years
HBO.
The New York stock market is less
active and has shown reactionary ten
dencies. Public interest is less prominent
and large speculators have taken profits
and arc waiting. London maintains its
unfavorable attitude toward Americans,
but tlf supply of our stocks there is small.
Exports of wheat (f lourlucludedas a heat)
from both coasts ot the United States and
Montieal this week are tin largest in any
week since September, 1893, amounting
to 5.213,000 bushels this week as com
pared with 4,160,000 bushels last -week,
and 2,991,000 bushels in the week a year
ago.
There are 41 business failures reported
throughout the Dominion of Canada this
week against 31 last week.
R. G. Euun &. Co.'s Weekly Review of
Trade will say:
Not Tor several jears have the tele
graphic reports from various cities in all
parts ot the country been as encouraging or
shown as unirormlmpneimmt.isthlsweeh
The markets are called crazy by some, but
fairly represent the people whose confidence
in the future is strong and increalng.
The one temporary hindrance is the
strike of the bituminous miners, which in
terfercs as yet little with industries, and
seems likely to terminate within a week.
Fluctuation in the stock and produce markets
dp not alter the fa"t;4 on the whole, they
are still tending upward.
The greatest gain has "been for agricul
ture. Wheat has advanced about 11 3-8
f'ents ror the week on actual transnotuins,
with heavy purchases for export. The of
finnl estimate ot yield is entirely disre
garded, except sis an admission that the
crop will be larger than that of last year,
and it is commonly assumed that the yield
will be 5.-0,000,000 bushels or more. The
aerage for the sixty active railway stocks
IsGl cimts per shaie lower than last Friday,
but trust stocks are practically unchanged
The confidence of holders Is sustained by
earnings, which, for August, thus far ex
cenl last year's by 10.8 per cent., and are
only 5.3 per cent smaller than In 1892.
Many additional establishments have
bpgun work during the past week.
In the woolen bunness a constant In
crease appears in the number of estab
lishments at -work and the demand for
goods has much Increased.
Failure for the -vveek have been 223 in
the United States against 280 last year,
and thirty in Canada, againsttwenty-seen
last year.

Chicago, .Aug. 21. The wheat market
was active and excited agAln today, and
to hay so is ancient history. The advance
from yesterday's close was G cents per
bushel. The range for December, now
the active option, was from 90 1-4
to 03 l-'J cents, with a reaction of 7-S
cents- at the finish. Liverpool came higher,
adancing 1 1-2 to 4 0-4 cents per bushel
Notw lthstandlng the decline here yesterday,
such an advance would oruinnuly bring
the cash buIuess to a standstill, but New
iork reported acceptances of over 100
loads Today's clearances were 717,000
bushels, making a total of 4,000,000 bush
els for the past five days. Receipts at
primary markets were 839,000 bushel,
while shipments were 931,000 bushels. The
dollar mark wa- passed at New Vork.Bal
timore, St. Louis and .Minneapolis.- The
viable looks as though It would decrease
1,000,000 bnhels. The decrease in the
Xorthwctt will be J, 100,000 bushels.
Th advance today waslargely on further
confirmation of decreased crop prospects
in the Northwest and the confident belief,
based on the most conservative infor
mation to ho had, that the total crop yield
of this year will but hlightly exceed that
of last year, andthatthe amountofourex
portablp surplus will be less than that of
189G. The serious deterioration in quality
of a large portiouof the Xorthwehtcr jp.uf
itself, in view of the reduced estimate ot
the total yield s a very bullish feature
Uigh price3 seem to be an assured fact.
Corn was active aud higher.
St Louis, Aug. 20. Dollar wheat was a
fact on the St. Louis market today. Cash
wnent sold for SI a hnshel on sample, and
the farmers' dream wab realized. Only one
cat load was sold at SI a bushel. It was
cIiqIcc grade and bought from the Brinson
Judd Grain Company for seeding pur
poses. It was raised in Sedgwick county.
Kan. Dollar wheat cut a ligure In the
trading a second time on the call, when
5,000 bushels of May wheat sold at that
price. It w ns bought by the D. It. Franclo
Commission Company from C. II. Albers.
It was the first option trade made at the
price in six years. After the sale May
wheat was held at SI. 00 1-2.

DR. wQODWABDy STATEMENT.
Penies Thnt the Odor From Grnce
Inutl Cemetery Produces Typhoid. t
There arc no typhoid germs in the at
mosphere arouud Graceland Cemetery,
says Dr. "William C. Woodward, health
officer of the District, and if any cases
of typhoid are to be brought home agalnss
the cemetery and its newly-opened graves,
they were caused in all probability by
surface drainage leaking into the well on
Twentieth street and otter wells In the
vicinity.
That is the explanation made yesterday
ro The Times reporter in refutation of the
claim made by residents of the vicinity
that the cases of typhoid are due to at
mospherical contamination. The simple
reason for this opinion is the established
scientific fact that tphold germs cannot
be transmitted by air, but are usually
taken into tho sjstem through impure
water. These odois; If odors there are,
nmy be unpleasantly prominent to the
nUiotory nerves, but they are not in them
selves ilangeioue. It iveie decidedly bet
ter, in Dr. Woodward's opinion, that a
temporary odor be borne in patience In
order that a perpetual source of tjphold
be removed permanently. He ya? very
dfiubtrul, however, If there tvus a suffl
cient odor to be detected a quarter of a
mile away.
A RemmUublo Cure of Chronlo
Diarrhoea.
"In 1SC2, when I Eerved my country
as a private in Company A, One-hundred
aud sixty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers,
I contracted chronlo diarrhoea. It has
given rac a great deal of trouble ever
since. I have tried a dozen different
medlciaes and several prominent doctors
withont any permanent relier Not ions
ago, n friend sent me a sample fcottla
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, and after that I bought
and took a PO-cent bottle; and now I
can say that I am entirely cured. I
cannot be thankful enough to you for
this great remedy, and recommend it to
all suffering veterans. It in doubt, wrlta
me- Yours gratefully, Henry Steinbcrger.
