W. M. Bnsb, olerk of Hotel Dorrance,
Providenoe, R. I. Ha says: "Fur
several years I have been almost a con?
stant sufferer from diarrhoea, the fre?
quent attaoks completely prostrating
me and rendering me unfit for my
duties at this hotel. About two years
ago a traveling salesmau kindly gave
mea email bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Mnoh to my surprise and delight its
effects were immediate. Whenever I
felt symptoms of the disease I would
fortify myself against the attack with
a few doses of this valuable remedy
The result has been very satisfactory
and almost complete relief from tbe

redound to Danville's interest in ?.' 'fi?

i.-nlly and theoretically opposed tO

giV'i this particular trust a very fair

can make money by selliug leaf to?
bacco on commission, they can aiso
do it and they aro at present much
disposed to tako advantage of the

they deliberately and knowingly vio?
l?t, d tho law; that many were in? l.g
ibli ; that others wore not sworn, and
that in one instance the ballot box
was kept secretly hidden. He says
that many boys under twenty-one
years of ago were allowed to vote,
and that the poll- were opened and
eloeed at the sweet will of election
officers. He adds, too, that Demo?
cratic officials intimidated voters by
threats of prosecutiou or bribod them
with promises of employment
threats and promises which, be says,
were faithfully kept.

an election was held there, while in

against him. la Scott county one of
the Democratic Judges was a con?

cinct in this county there was a riot
in which the Republican judges were
shot and badly injured. According
to Clan. Walker, the Democrotic
judges then took possession of the
polls, flourished their pistols, and
drove 100 Republicans away.

The denifls entered by Judge Rhea
to these charges are wholesale in
