"Washington, Oct. 19. President
Wilson In a letter to Representative
Underwood, Democratic leader of the
bouse, makes his appeal to the voters
of the nntion for tho return of a Dem
ocratic congress. Tho president ex
presses the utmost confidence In the
outcome. The nation, he contends,
never has failed to sustain a congress
end administration that have sought
Jto render It a permanent and disin
terested benefit. '
"A pinctlinl nation Is not likely.'
said tho president, referring to the
congress, "to reject such a team, full
of the spirit of public service, and
substitute In the midst of great tasks
either a party upon which a deep de
moralization has fallen or a party
which has nut grown to a stature that
would wnrrant Its assuming tho rr
rponslble burdens of the state."
The letter then reviews at some
length the enactments of the present
congress and explains the failure of
the tariff to lower the cost of living
by saying the war has pcevented ac
tive competition from bringing prices
"to their normal level again."
The president continues:
"The present congress haj taken
its steps with courage, sincerity and
effectiveness. The lobby by which
tome of the worst features of the old
tariff had been maintained was driven
away bv tho mere pitiless turning on
of the Unlit The soil In which com
binations had erown was removed
lest some of tlie seeds of monopoly
might be found to remain In It. Tlif

Tho revenue lcfi by the Import duties
was replaced by an Income tax which
In part shifted the burden of taxation
from the shoulders of every consumer
In the country, trout or small, to
Lhoulders more certainly able to r-9.i

effects upon manufacture and com
merce have been corrected we sha.l
have to lnriose additional taxes to
make up for the loss of such part of

Anti-Tr st and Currency Acts.
"It is fortunate that the reduction
of the dutl"s nunc first. The tinpo.t
duties collected under the old tariff
constituted a much larger proportion
of the whole revenue of the govern
ment than do the duties .imlcr the
new A stt'l larger proportion of tlw
revenue would have been cut off by
the war had the old taxes s'ood. and
a larger tax would have ben neces

"With similar purpose and In a like
temper the congress has sought In the
trade commission nlll and In the Clay
ton bill, to make men In a small way
of business as free to succeed as men
tn a big way to kill monopoly In the
seed, Monopolies are bul.lt up by un

Suffered Twenfy-One Years
Finally Found Relief.
Having suffered for twenty one years
with a pain in my side, I finally have
found relief In Dr. Kilmer's Sw.vnp
Root. Injections of morphine were
my only relief lor short periods of
time. 1 became so sick that I had to
undergo a surclcal operation in New
Orleans, which benefited me for two
years. When the same pain came
one day I was so sick that I cave up
hopes of living. A friend advised me
to try your Swamp-Root and I at once
commenced using it. The first bottle
did me so much good that I purchased
two more bottles. I am now on my
second bottle and am feeling like a
new woman. I passed a gravel stone
as large as a big red bean and several
small ones. I have not had the least
feeling of pain since taking your
Swamp-Root and I feel It my duty to
recommend this great medicine to all
suffering humanity. Gratefully yours,

London, Oct. 19. The news f.-om
the Geiman-ltussian battle front Indi

The battle of tho Vistula, the cen
ter of lighting In the eastern theatei

tie of the Olse and Alsne. The Bus
slans having halted a German d.ivo

as powerful as the German advance

The German force of 600,000 men,
according to Russian Information, has
apparently settled down behind a for
tified line. The Russians are striking
hero and there, using Cossacks effec
tively. The official statement by tho
Russian general staff was as follows:
"Austrian attempts to cross the San
river have failed. South of Przemysl
the fighting continues. At several
points there were bayonet attacks, in
which we captured fifteen Austrian
officers and more than 1,000 soldiers.
Austrian reinforcements are reported
in the passes of the Carpathians."
The Russian operations along the
East Prussian frontier do not appear
to have been more successful than
the German effort to break through
the fortified line in eastern France.
In Gallcla the Russians have met with
reverses similar to those of the Ger
mans In northern France at the time
of their near approach to Paris. They
have been compelled to retreat t.'om
a line that was hardly sixty mile
from Cracow to a line that follows
the river San. I.Ike the Germans in
France, the Russians kept their ar
mies Intact and are In position to
start a new advance toward Cracow,
provided they can advance their
forces In Poland and Increase their ef
fort In Kas Prussia.
