military service of the United States with
a reunion last night at Frcund's, which "was
participated in by fifteen of tlie thirty-nine
survivors of tlie original company of
Tlie reunion was full of reminiscent
happiness and joyous light. It was noisy
with laughter and applause; eloquent with
speech aud story; musical with song and
clinking glasses; radiant wltli bright faces,
and merry with "witnnd humor.
The reunion "was chockfull of the spirit of
brotherly feeling, proper in a reunion.
Old men fought their battles o'er, dwelt on
the thoughts of their absent comrades, and

IN TO THE BANQUET.
After tho enthusiasm of their greetings
had subsided, when tho amber tide in the
decanter which graced the center table
of the front parlor ebbed low, and after
ceratin comrades bad played the piano till
it felt like turning its ribs over on the other
side, the goodly company adjourned to
the feast "hail, where a banquet, fit for
the gods and National Rifles was spread.
The table was placed diagonally across
the room. Tho light which fell through
softly tinted shades was almost thwarted
by the ferns and palms which decked the
festal board. Rich clusters of flowers
were placed at close intervals.
There was no formality. There were a
few drss suits, but nobody seemed to mind
it. Everybody called everybody elso by
his Christian name and the cheeriest of good
humor prevailed. There "were no toasts.
Everybody talked when, where, how,

Discovery For Consumption Misrepre
sented to the Public Does Not
Claim to Have Cured a
Single "Case. , ,
What Dr. Wales, Formerly Surgeon
General of the Navy, Has
to Say About It.
"Tho Cure for Consumption'.' -is tho
headline of an article going the rounds
of tho newspapers, which purports that
Dr. Waldstein, who is in Europe, lias
made a discovery that cures consnmptioir.'
The truth of the whole matter dawns
upon the careful reader of tho article
thut Dr. Waldstein never cured a simile
case of consumption, neither does he pre
tend to hnvo done so.
While Dr. Waldstelu may hnvo, and no
doubt has, made a -valuable discovery
in scientific medicine, and while Pilo
carpine Is said to huvo similar physiologi
cal action on the glandular bystem as has
Dr. Shade's Chloridum discovery for con
sumption, yet the fact remains nnd. cannot
be denied that the Chloridum trc'utmunt
has cured a number of Washington pepplc.
Three of the persons cured in this city are
physicians, and in whose cases tubercu
losis was diagnosed by microscopical ex
amination. A number of the other cures
were representatives of tubercular pa
rentage, who had all died of tubercular
consumption. The fact most ignored
by the local profession is that all the par
ties referred to and who are living wit
nesses to their escape from a consump
tive's grave were diagnosed and pro
nounced incurablo by their family phy
sicians. It reminds tho writer of an extract of a
letter written by Dr. P. Brett Morgan, of San
Francisco. Cat., who fills the chair of
physical diagnosis aud lung diseasesin the
Homeopathic College in that city, when he
writes in reference to Dr. Shade's Chlo
ridum treatment being the "greatest dis
covery of the century," and then adds- "For
while there arc thousands of sclfiMi, narrow-minded
and bigoted men finding their
way into the profession who feel in solemn
duty bound to 'taboo' every new thing
undertheaun UNLESS ITCOMESAGROSS
THE OCEAN at the same time the pro
fession has it3 quota of men who aTe none
the less large-minded and true because
they are physicians, and such men will not
fail sooner or later to acknowledge and
pn7c the merits of every intrinsically val
uable advance made in the healing art." It
Dr. Shade was a foreigner instead of an
American It would nodoubt b3 an advantage
in securing a free advertisement of his
discovery, which the Washington Times' in
vestigation has proven beyond a doubt to
have produced a larger percentage of cures
than any report published in this or any
Skepticism and prejudice have remarkable
effect upon Americans as to tlie ability of
their own aggressive men, not being abh, as.
yet, to shake off the false delusion that
every valuable and great discovery in
scientific knowledge must come "across
A Washington Times reporter called upon
Dr. Shade, 1232 Fourteenth street,-last
evening, aud in ttic conversation the doctor
said he "hoped that Dr. Waldstclh's worthy
and able efforts in advancing pathological
research might develop into greater bless
ings to mankind than have ever yet been
achieved." Dr. Philip S. Wales, formerly
surgeon general of the navy. Bays in the
Public Ledger, of Philadelphia, ou Saturday.
"I cannot give the alleged discovery of Dr.
Waldstein the slightest credit, nor can I un
derstand why it should cure both'canccrand
"Thelatterisa germ disease, and"canceris"
supposed to be related to malaria, as it is
very rife on lowlands and along water
courses. But the treatment of cancer as
well as its natu re, does not bear any parallel
to the treatment of consumption.
"The white corpuscles, that are called the
phogocyles, come to the rescue In each in
stance. They are both wasting diseases, but
that's about all the parallel which exists be
tween cancer and consumptidn.
"Pilocarpine is a consumption in itself.
It is debilitating, weakening, reducing. My
own view would be that it would only haeten
the end and assist the consumption to de-
stroy the patient."

The error in measurement of the hydraulic

exclusively in The Times, is occasioning"

If those wheels had fallen ten men who
were working on tho b!g lathe immediately
under them would havo been killed or
maimed for life.
The accident occurred while the lathe was
reverted in the effort to unscrew the
hydraulic cylinder, which through tho al
leged m's measurement of Master Mechanic
Charles Robinsou, who has charge of all the
gun measurements, was stuck on the gun
tnbe. Work was suspended on all of the
lathes affected by the break, and at a late
hour last night the trouble had not been
It has been reported that the mistake
which was made on this gun was reported
In The Times, was not a mistake at all, but
that the trouble was due to an experiment
which was being made on an experimental
nickel steel gun to ascertain if the co-efficient
of expansionof metal wouldapplysufficieutly
well, to warrant the gun of this class being
manufactured out of nickel eteel aud that
this jacket had been stuck on the gun as a
result of one of the experiments and had
occasioned no loss to the government.
Thisls said not to be a fact. The gun that
has been injured is one of those intended
for actual service, and when completed

DALY'S -COLT WAS VERY SICK
This Partially Accounts ?or Hi3 Defeat, but
the Filly Appaaro to Ba tho' Best Twc-Year-OM
at the Track The Finish in tha
St. Asaph Stakss Which Ena Won Was
Very Tame Sntriea and Selections.
An exceptionally well-filled card, which
included the meeting of tlie best of the two-year-olds
which have been shown this
spring, attracted the largest attendance
of the meeting to the St. Asaph track
The day was cold aud raw, and those
who had ventured oat in tlieir Easter attire
shivered and shook as the wind whistled
through the unprotected grand stand.
The talent again had a losing streak,
and the hanl-Iuckstories that were flying
around after the last race, and only bne
winning favorite to show, were as thick
as pickaninnies on a Southern plantation.
Twenty-ono bookic3 were on, and, as
may well be imagined, tiiey went home
The event of the day," the St. "Asaph
Stakes, was tlie subject of much specula
tion, and with the three crack youngsters,
The Hartford, Applegnte and Floretta, as
starters, it looked like a difficult matter
to name the winner.
There were six carded at first, but three
refused the Isbue, leaving only the above
named three to start.
THE HARTFORD THEFAVQRITF
When tlie betting first opened Floretta
aud The Hartrord were even favorites, at
8 to 5, with Applegale next In demand, at
twos. The speculation was pretty evenly
divided between the first two, but just
at the close Daly's horse was made a
slight favorite at 13 to 10, with Floretta
at 7 to 5 and Appiegate the outsider, at
3 to 1.
They were kept at the post quite a little
time, owing to Appiegate refusing to break.
When they did finally get away Floretta
rushed out, and, tip-toeing the other two,
had them beaten before the first quarter
had been run.
As they rounded the turn for home Keefe
went to the bat on The Hartford, while
Floretta increased her lead to three lengths.
Appiegate ran out badly at this juncture,
but still managed to beat The Hartrord,
who quit like a dog. At the finish It was
Floretta three length before Appiegate,
who beat The Hartford by six.
In the opening event St. Michael was
made an odds on favorite, going to the
post at 9 to 10. Major General was most
fancied ot the others and closed at fives.
Of the others, St. Vincent was the most
fancied and was considerably played at
WILL FONSO A GOOD THING.
To a good start WH1 Fonso showed in
front, but going around the upper turn
was headed by Tancred. Swinging into
the back stretch Will Fonso again got
his head in f ron t, and steadil y drawing away
was ncverheaded, winning from St.Michael
by three lengths. Horton rode a good race
on Senator Vest, and was only beaten for
third place by a short head.
The talent received another setback In
the one mile handicap. Copyright opened
at twos, was backed to even money, and
then tlie good money coming In on Equity
receded to 11 to 5, at which price he
closed. Equity closed a favorite, at 4
To a good start Penn rushed Logan to
the front, and cutting out the running the
whole trip, was never caught ReifT rode
a horrible race on the favorite, and finished
third to Little Mat, who was a 50 to 1
It was reported that Jennings three-year-old
gelding, Stanley M. , had worked six fur
longs In 1:17 1-2, and he was consequently
made a hot favorite in the fourth race Xor
maiden three-year-olds. He opened at
8 to 5, but by post time bad been played
to G to 5. Salvor and Wilton were even
second choices, at fours.
WHITE COCADE NEARLY LEFT.
The start was a very poor one, White
Cocade being practically left. Travesty,
an S to 1 shot, went to the front and was
never caught, winning by a length from
Wilton, who came fast at the erd, beating
Salvor for second money bya short head.
The only winning "favorite of the day
turned up in the next race. Hernna opened
at eveu money, but was steadily played
and closed at 3 to 5.
She went to the front at flap fall and won
in the easiest kind 'of a linish by three
lengths from Tyvana, who heat Old Age
Capt. Brown was touted as a good thing
in the last event, and was hacked from 2 to
1 to 8 to 5, at which price he closed.
Hocy was second choice at threes.
The latter got the best of the start, and
it was all over but the shouting, he winning
by a length. Capt. Brown was second, four
in front of Lollle Eastin, third.
