It Excites Comment.
The unemployed printers of the city feel
aggrieved by the manner in which their
committee was treated by District Assem
bly CG Knlghtsot Labor, Thursday evening.
One of the committee stated last night In
diicus-Ning the matter that while the
printers regret what occurred very much,
still tucy have no Ill-feellnga against the
Knights of Labor, and do not Intend
to take the action of District Assembly No.
66 as an expression of the sentiment or the
men, hut of the order In the District
The committeeman referred to, as an evi
dence that the rank and file ot the
Knurhts of Labor in the city hold no ill will
for the printers, stated that several of the
most influf ntial and strongest Knights ot
Labor assemblies connected with District
Assembly No 66 bad Indorsed their ex
cursion, and had purchased tickets for it
In large numbers.
At all events, however, the excursion for
Hie benefit of the unemployed printers will
be run to River View on Auguht 30, and a
most enjoyable time is promised all who
attend. There will be baseball, a tug-of-war,
Mcjcle rccee and tub races, and a
cake wnli and several other things to
amuke and interest the excursionists.

OGiUPIIES OF CLERKS
The Latest Wrinkle Evolved at
the Treasury Department.
PARTICULARS ABOUT THEM
It Is Suspected That the Scheme In
Intended to Dihclose Jnst "What
"Pull" Each Employe Ha-., Though
This Is Strenuously Denied by
Every employe of ihe Treasury Depart
ment is to be put ou record, and this
record is to he just where the Secretary
ot the Treasury may put his fiugor ou it
at the right time-
A biographical sketol. of every employe
is to b- prepared uud Indexed so that ic
will be readily accessible. Of course, there
lb a- partial history of each apiiohuef on
file at the department, but this personal
history is hcattered through the papers
pertaining to the appointment of tliat
employ, and i t sometimes requires a con
siderable :ciircU o rind out just how
ich and. such employe came to be ap
pointed. A day or two ago Assistant Secretary
Vanderllp selected a committee to de
vise ways aud means pf carrying this
biographical plan into execution. Thb
gentlemen so chosen are Auditor Andrews,
Assistant Appointment Clerk Rose and
Mr DeLand, secretary to the committee
on personnel. This committee has held
several uformal meetings, but the plan
is still in n formative state.
A blank containing all the questions to
which answers are desired will be sent,
to each employe ot the department. These
blanks will be filled out and returned
to the committee. They will then be
indexed and filed away for reference
when needed. It is not the deMgn ot
ihe officials ot the department that the
infor-nntlou so gathered shall be printed
or published, as it was said yesterday that
publicitj might defeat the purpose of
It i denied that there is any other sig
nificance In the movement than the'Trea-s-
ury officials wish to know as much as pos
sible about the people in the service of the
department, and that this desire Is legiti
mate and business-like. It was denied
that tile -plan is simply to discover the
lufluence usi-d by the clerks to secure their
preferment that the department may weed
out clerks who were appointed through
"influence" which the department, has
blacklisted. There are some people at the
Treasury who profess to believe that this
Is the realTeabon why the officials-wish to
find out w much of the employes, but they
seem to have no other foundation for this
belief than their suspicion.
The blanks wlilch the employes will
have to fill in will show how they ob
tained their positions, how they got into
the classified service, and will show the
story of their promotion, reduction, etc
The exact fiuesllons to Le answered have,
not been as yet agreed on, but probably
will be within u fe"w days. The blanks
will be piinted immediately after that
question is decided, and will then be dis
tributed throughout the serice.
There are nearly 20,000 people employed
In tne Traiury Department. First, there
is the departmental service, which includes
nil tlie otnees and bureaus in Washington,
the marine hospital service, lighthouse and
life-paving servicesi mints and assay of
fices, vorLmeii employed on public build
ings, sul'treasuries, etc. The number of
employes within the classified services iu
this great department of the Treasury U
1 1,56-1. Then there Is the customs service,
including all people employed iu custom
houses, at ports of entry, subports, itc.
There are 1,411 people thm? employed. The
third depaitment of the Treasury is the
internal revenue service, in -which 3.1G8
persoub are employed.
The biographies of all these people will
te directly under the eye of the Secretary
of the Treasury.
SCHLATTER NOT SO DIVINE.
The "HcmiIci" Conducts Himself In
a Very Unseemly "Maimer.
Canton, Ohio, Aug. 20. "Healer" Schlat
ter looked a trifle "peeked" this morning
when he mounted his"thtone" and begau
his "laying nn of hands" and "blessing."
He only "healed" for about ten minutes and
then withdrew to hisboardlng-house. Last
night Schlatter went the rounds of IocU
saloons and only let tip when lie was re
fused any more liquor. He is not Inclined
to talk to leporters today.
Mrs. Ferris is here. She will not say
whether or not In a telegram from Pitts
burg she referred to Schlatter as a "freak"
and said that he had gone back to Canton
and would"give her a rest." SLe is, how
ever, emphatlcm her denial that she Is Mrs.
A traveling man from Rochester, well
kuown heic, rut who, for business reasons,
does not want his name used in this con
nection, says he was on the train from
Beavci Falls, Pa., to Alliance last night
Ke readied Canton today. He says Schlat
ter was on a "mashing tour" on the train.
The"healer" became so offensive to women
that one gfrl was forced to tears. Trainmen
interfered and Schlatter was pushed to his
seat with a command backed by strong
words to remain there and be quiet. The
traveling man declares that it was the
general I mpreson ou the tralu that Schlat
ter was drunk then.

A. Bonlay, the man suspectd ot the mur
der of Marcus G. Nichols In Daniels Farms
It is dated from Hudson, N .X., August

May, he had made Miss Weeks, now Mrs.
Boniay, presents ot a valuable gold watch,
dresses, shoes, etc. He says he did give
her a watch, but he earned the money
peddling notions, and that she earned
her own wedding dress by working In
Shelton. He says Mrs. Bonlay is a true
Christian woman, and it Is too bad she
did not get a better man who was
worthy of a noble woman's love, Instead
of 'a wretch like me " He says he is a
fugitive from Justice and cannot come
back to contradict there statements, and
asks the Sentinel to do it for him
In a postscript he tells how he can be
communicated with. Chief ot Tollce
Tomlinson, ot Shelton, alio received a
letter toduy postmarked like the Sentinel's
letter. On comparison of the signatures
r with that of Boniay on his marriage
certificate, they aro found to bo In

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription will cure
any disorder or disease of the organs dis
tinctly feminine. No matter how hopeless
you think your case mo matter how many
doctors have told you that you were in
curable no matter what you mave done or
left undone, the "Favorite Prescription"
will cure you. Perbops its greatest use

period it practically eliminates pain and

inconvenience whatever. It was the first time
T never had pain during that period. 1 cannot
ay too much for your medicines, especially

BOND MYSTERY MAD CLEAR
Counterfeit Securities Belonged to
Mr. O'Reilly, of Louisville.

The Treasury Department has thrown a

presentation for redemption of two
counterfeit $1,000 bonds of the 7-30 Is
sue of tho Government of June 15, 1805,
and has refused absolutely to give the
name of the person from whom the notes
came. The secret is a tecret no longer,

"My father left a. lot of old papers when

this attic the other day and discovered the

took them to a broker, who told me they
were genuine, and that he had handled a

them to tho Treasury for redemption. I

Ing mass Is the chief point of attraction.
"Agave" the learned call it, but it is
better known as the century plant.
Fifteen clusters of yellowish green bios

the odor which permeates the atmosphere
is sweet and delicate enough to have been
wafted from the gardens of Hesperides.
Bunches of buds are ready to burst into
bloom nnd It is thought that before the
plant has finished there will have been as
many as twenty-five blossoms.
Since the plant showed signs of awaking
and airaylng itself in all its glory, the
President nnd his wife, knowing the rarity
of it, have watched it with interest, so
now that the buds have culminated iu
glorious bloom, the gardener has plucked a
number of the flowers, packed them care

their way to the Chief Magistrate and
For" sixty years the plant has been at
the White House, hut tills Is the first
