Fred Foster, the noted horseman, was
in the city on a flying visit to his brother

in the evening for Chicago, whence he
goes to New York in a few days to make
preparations for shipping his string of

A number of Mr. Foster's string of
twenty-two racers has been in San Fran
cisco during the winter months, and the
popular horseman has enjoyed remark
able good fortune throughout the entire
meet at the two tracks. Last week alone
he won five races, one of which was a
stake race. His mare, Lennip, aged,
has covered herself with glory tjiis sea
son, and out of fifteen starts has won
eight times, been placed second three
times, third twice, and only twice un
placed. She has beaten every good horse

Discussing the racing outlook with a
reporter for the Globe last night Mr.
"This promises to be one of the best
years in the history of the American
turf. In San Francisco, for instance, the
two tracks are offering the best purses
that have ever been known on the Pacific
slope. In one week at Tanforan $26,4>X)
was given, while at Oakland the total
was $2,000 higher for the same week.
"When the Chicago season opens the
purses will be on the same liberal scale.
None of them will be less than $400, and
some of the stake events will be worth
$10,000 to the winner. At St. Louis and
In the East it is the same. In fact, the
situation is so promising that I have de

there until the early part of April, when
they will be sent East. The others are
now on the farm at Genoa, Wis., and
they, too, will commence campaigning in
April. Altogether I expect to have twen

Mr. Foster stated that while he had no

PITTSBURG' Feb. 26.—The PittsDurg
An underwriting syndicate of insiders,
with $100,000,000 capital, will secure the
"cream" of the big deal for the organi
zation of the United States Steel corpo
ration. This information comes from
Pittsburgers interested in the negotia
tions. J. Fierpont Morgan will receive
•f1.500,000 for perfecting the arrangement
and it is said positively that the Carne
gie company will not receive the
amounts the stockholders are credited
with obtaining for their great property.
It is stated that it is the proposition
of Mr. Morgan to permit the "insiders"
- the directors of the various companies
to be included, except the Carnegie com
pany—to subscribe to the capital of the
underwriting syndicate which has been
placed at $100,000,000. This capitalization
was bas-ed on the earnings ol all of the
plants to be taken into the combination,
it is the intention of the underwrit
ing sj ndicate of which Mr. Morgan will
be the head, to guarantee the operation
of the plants for one year from the or*
At the end of that time there will be a
division made to the underwriting sub
scribers, who, it is estimated, will re
ceive as their share about three to one
in stock at par and whatever is left of
the underwriting capital.
MISS DALRTMPIE DEAD.
Vounu Girl of St. Paul Succumbs to
Miss Josephine Dalrymple, of St Paul,
died yesterday in Tarrytown. N. V., of
appendicitis. The death is peculiarly sad,
coming as it does so soon after the death
of her father, who passed away ten
days ago of Bright's disease at his home
in this city. Mrs. Dalrymple has been
an invalid for years, but, nothwithstand
ing this, she left some days ago for
Tarrytown, N. V., to be present at the
bedside of her daughter. She was fte
compankd by her two sisters, Mrs. Radrr,

The invalid mother and Dr. A. J. Gil

the sickness of Miss Dalrymple had been
in daily communication with tria physl

When the encouraging telegrams ooased

must attempt to reach ncr daughter. She
reached Tarrytown before her denth.
The Tarrytown physician informed Dr.
Gillette in his telegrams that Miss Dal

Every Imprisoned Man, Work -r
Was Directed to Saving- the .
Rest of the Mine. "
CHEYENNE, Wyo., "> Feb. ' 26.—The
worst ; disaster jn ;. the i history, of coal
mining in Wyoming since the Almy hor
ror, eight years age, occurred at Dia
mondvillo . last % night. Thirty-five men
are believed to have perished '. in ! a fire
which;; started ii -: Mine No. 1 of the
DianibndvOle: Coal "pud-rOok*3 company.
.The - blaze was jjj first . discovered shortly
after the night shift commenced work. It
is- thought to have originated from a
careless miner's lamp in the oil room.
The flames • mad-.- such g rapid progress
that only one man escaped, from the
two entries in which it was /confined.
Ilis'n.-me is John :Anderson, and he was
frightfully burned in n?num3 the [ gaunt
let of the names He was suddenly con
fronted by a wall of iii c anA smoke and
wrapping his head in an overcoat, he
ran gin the direction of th main - en
trance. The first ir.lirratien the miners
in th<i other entries had of a fire was
when Anders m came rushing into the
upper level, his cleaning in flames. He
fell , unconscious anu was carried to the
mouth of the mine. The alarm was :
Bounded and hundreds of miners at work
In the mines and on the outside rushed
to the rescue of their I imperiled - com
rades. The tire had by this time made
such progress that it was impossible to
enter the rooms of flames. The entire
night was spent in confining the fire to
the two entries, and this morning it was
necessary to seal them up to : prevent
the flames from spreading to other parts
of -the mine.
ALL HOPE ABANDONED.
This step was only decided upon after
all hope of saving the lives of the men
had been abandoned. Nothing could live
five minutes in the fjre which was in.
creasing in fierceness every minute The
plugging of the two entries will smother
the fire, but it may bo several days be
for the barricades can be removed and
the chambers explored. The exact total
of men entombed is not yet known, as
a number are missing, some on sick
leave and others in the hospital suffer
ing from burns received while fighting
the flames, so «that an accurate count
is at present impossible.
The scenes at the mouth of the mine
during the nighil and today-were heart
rending. Relatives and friends of the
entombed miners rushed to the mine,
frantically waving their hands and cry
ing to the mine officials and miners to
save their dear ones.
Many of the women and children were
slightly injured in the crowd and by
falling over obstacles in the darkness.
Diamondville has been the scene of a
number of disastrous fires since the coal
mines were opened there, ten years ago,
• but the conflagrations were never at
tended with serious loss of life. The
mine is owned by the Oregon Short Line
railroad. Its output is about 175,000 ton?
of coal per year, and upward of 700
miners are employed.
FIRE NOW UNDER CONTROL.
KEMMERER, Wyo., Feb. 26.—1t is giv
en out by Supt. Thomas Sneddon and
confirmed by others fanVillar with the
conditions that the lives of all the men
were certainly extinguished within three
minutes of the fire gaining the ascendan
At this writing, 6 p. m., the fire is fully
under control, and Supt. Sneddon an
nounces that he will open the mine to
morrow for the recovery of the bodies.
An additional tragedy followed the main
one today. Thomas Simpson, with his
young son, who are among the victims,
came to Diamondville from Alabama,
but six weeks ago, bringing his wife, in
the hope that the change of climate
would benefit her health. The shock of
last night's tragedy was too great for
Mrs. Simpson's health and today she
died. Thus every member of this fam
ily Is a victim of the disaster.
The prompt action of Supt. Sneddon
in closing the mine and thus confining
the fire and ultimately extinguishing it
has prevented a vast property loss and
will make It possible for the company to
resume operations without much loss of
time, in fact, Mr. Sneddon has advised
the Oregon Short Line officials that
the shutdown resulting from the fire will
be temporary', ft^icl that he will resume
work before the close of this week.
The experience, of the company in the
fire in the .same mine two years ago,
when the mine was closed for many
months and a vast property loss entailed,
is not to be repeated. Ever since the last
fire was brdught under control tHfe com
pany has been for a repeti
tion. False bulkheads were put in on
every level, s with the necessary material
at hand. By this means, any portion of
the mine could be quickly and" effectually
converted into an airtight and iiretight
compartment. "Fhese conditions prevailed
last night tfnd when the hopelessness T)f
recovering any Jives became apparent
Mr. Sneddon promptly sealed up the por
tion of the«Hiine afire.
Of the men imprisoned in the working,
only two are supposed to be Americans—
the balance being Italians and Finns.

mitted to the bar in 1891; was made law
clerk in the miscellaneous division ot
that year. In 1593 he was appointed to
a special position in the customs bureau
and later was made private secretary to
then Assistant Secretary "Wike. His
name will probably be sent "to the senate
PORTO RICAN KICK.
C. Borda, W. Borda and W. Balvaa,
who recently were appointed a commit
tee at a mass meeting of property own
ers at San Juan to protest to the United
States authorities against jthe manner in
which the internal tax law is enforced,
called upon the postmaster general to
day. They said there la no objection
to the gross amount levied, but there is
great dissatisfaction as to the manner in
which the property is assessed. They
claimed that the assessors are unfamiliar
with the property conditions of the Isl
and and unqualified for the work. The
postmaster general took great interest
in their presentation of the case and said
he would consult some of the other of
ficials of the government.
NAMED BY MTKINLEY.

nations to the senate: Marine Corps-
First lieutenants to be captains, Smedley

The conferees of the senate and house
have reached an agreement on the hazing
amendment to the military academy ap
propriation bill. Yielding to the de
mands of the senate they have eliminated
the provision inserted by the first con
ference at the instance of the Dick In
vestigation committee and the house con
ferees have agreed to accept the amend
ment as originally made by the senate
with modifications and one addition. The
modification limits the time during which
offenders may be kept out of the army
or navy to two years, the .senate making
it perpetual, and the marine corps is
acfaed to the organizations to appoint
ment to which they are rendered ineligi
ble. The provision as agreed upon is as
"The superintendent of the military
academy shall make such rules approved
by the secretary of war, as will effect
ually prevent the practice of hazing; ami
any cadet found guilty of participating
in or encouraging or countenancing such
practice, shall be summarily expelled
from the academy, and-shall not there
after be reappointed to the corns of
cadets or be eligible for appointment,
as a commissioned officer in the army,
navy or marine corps until two years
after the graduation of the - class of
which he was a member."
Tne senate in executive session tonight
confirmed all the naval nominations for
promotion sent in except those of Ad
mirals Sampson and Schley, and also the
Jacob G. Bickley, to be postmaster at
Texarkana, Ark.; - George S. Morgan,
postmaster at Newton Center, Mass.;
Daniel B. McCann, of Montana, register
of the land office at Rampart City,
Alaska; Ben K. Kimberley. of Salem,
Col., to be receiver of public moneys at
WAR." REVENUE BILL.
A complete agreement has been reached
by the Republican conferees on the most
important items of the war revenue re
duction bill. On beer the house wins its
contention, and the senate yields. The
house fixed a rate of $1.60 per barrel
without any discount, while the senate
retained the old rate of $2 per barrel
with a 25 per cent discount. The differ
ence between the two rates is about 10
cents on the barrel.
The tobacco tax is compromised. The
house left the tax standing at 12 cents
per pound, as in the existing law, while
the senate reduced it 25 per cent, or to
9 cents per pound. The compromise pro
vides for a reduction or 2.40 cents per
pound, leaving the rate 9.60. The house
also comes out ahead on bank checks.
The house repealed the entire tax on
checks, but the senate did not accept
this action. The senate conferees now
concede the house provision. The reduc
tion in the revenue bill will be $7,000,000
on account of this action. The house
provision entirely repealing the tax on
proprietary medicines is also accepted.

AFTER GRIP WHAT?
The Perilous Period Which
Follows an Attack of this
Grip is bad enough •with its aching
bones, inflamed eyes, painful back, and
fever. But its after effects are perhaps
even more to be dreaded than the misery
attendent on an attack of the .disease
itself. The person who comes safely
through an attack of grip, man, woman,
or child, is left in a condition of peculiar
debility and prostration from which it is
difficult to rally. A slight cold or cough
may find speedy termination in lung
disease. Ordinary exposure results in
pneumonia. The disease seems to
deplete the vitality, undermine the
strength, and affect the balance of the
mind. It is one of the sad experiences
of the grip, that the convalescent sup
posed to be rallying well, has been found
in a condition of complete collapse.
As a result of the grip the lungs, and
other organs of respiration seem pecu
liarly liable to be affected and consump
tion may easily be the after consequence
of the malady. It needs no argument
therefore to urge the building up of the
system weakened by grip to enable it to
resist and throw off these sequent dis
eases which so frequently prove fatal.
In actual test Dr. Pierces Golden Med
ical Discovery has proved itself pecu
liarly valuable not only in the quiok cure
of the disease but also in rebuilding the
body which grip has undermined and in
curing diseases which are prone to fasten
on the enfeebled system. It strengthens
the stomach, heals the lungs, and puri
fies the blood. It puts the whole body
on a plane of sound and vigorous health.
A VICTIM OJ? GRIP.
"Two years ago this month I had
an attack of grip which left my throat
and lungs in bad condition," writes
Mrs. M. E. Stewart, of Center, Chickasaw
Nation, Ind. Ter. The doctor said I
had disease of the bronchial tubes,
but confessed ■to my husband (un
known to me), that I had consumption
in the first stage and could never be
cured; but, thanks to God and to Dr.
Pierce, to-day I feel well, and am better
now than I have been for many years.
I can do as much work now as any
woman of my age, which is forty-seven.
One of my neighbor women advised me
to get Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Dis
covery, so I sent arid got it, and then I
was not satisfied with it alone, hardly
believing it would cure me, so I wrote to
Dr. Pierce and gave him my symptoms.
He replied that I had catarrh of the
head, extending to my lungs, and told
what would cure me. I took his advice
—never neglected it for anything. I
have taken seventeen bottles of ' Golden
Medical Discovery,' eight vials of Dr.
Pievce's Pellets, and ten packages of Dr.
some unknown manner on the top floor
of the four-story brick building at 221
-223 Woodward avenue, occupied by Grln

Waukegan, lll.—Two employes, Ger
trude and Jennie Wells, were probably
burned to death and two others badly
injured in a fire which destroyed the
plant of the Alden Organ Stop company.
The loss was small.
Scranton, Pa.—Employes to the number

the triune board of public works in this
city and providing for a one-man board

the supreme court immediately.
Chicago—John T. McCutcheon, the war
correspondent-artist, who was with Ad
miral Dewey at the battle of Manila, was
taken on special car to Asheville, JST. C.,
where it is hoped his health, seriously
affected by malaria, contracted in the
Philippines, and an attack of typhoid
pneumonia in Chicago, will bo regained.

failed to open for business. The deposits
are said to aggregate $36,000. Cashier
Offll, the only official of the bank here,
has not made any statement, but it is
believed the closing of the bank was
due to other interests.

Sage's Catarrh Remedy. Ido not regret
that I spent the money paid for the med
icines. I have gained twenty-four pounds.
Indeed Dr. Pierces medicines have done
wonders for me. It is no use for me to
try to tell my feelings. It would take
time and space, but I was a skeleton and
so poor and so down-hearted I could not
look at one of my little ones without
shedding tears, thinking that they would
soon be left without a mother."
HOW STRENGTH IS RESTORED.
What makes me strong ? Ask yourself
that question and you will find that the
answer will be, I am made strong by food.
How does food make us strong? By
passing through the processes of diges
tion and being converted into nutrition,
which, in the form of blood, nourishes the •
body. So that while blood is the life of
the body, food is the life of the blood.
Bred vein and artery
c body leads like
>mach. If the body
k, therefore, we must
to the stomach first
c cause of weakness,
and then to the blood.
The same result of phys
ical weakness will follow
the opening of an artery,
or starvation. Yon may
bleed to death or starve to
death. This is so well un
derstood in medical prac
tice that the first consid
eration of the physician
in investigating disease is
the condition of the stom
ach. - If the stomach i 3
weak the body can't be
strong. If the stomach is
weak, that weakness will
surely find an echo in ■
some other organ depend
ent on the stomach for its
nutrition—such as heart,
liver, lungs, kidneys, etc.
[f you starve a mother,
Myou starve the child at her
you starve the stomach, you
organs it feeds. But starva
e body can be accomplished
even where food is plentifully supplied,
because if the stomach and other organs
of digestion and nutrition are diseased,
then the food will not be converted into
nutrition or only partly so, and the body
inadequately nourished will begin to
grow weak. The first attempt, then, in
dealing with a weak body is to nourish
it into strength. The general method of
this attempt is to try and bring the food
down to the level of the weak stomach.
This is done by the use of prepared
foods, cod liver oil, and its emulsions.
But this doesn't cure the disease of the
stomach or put the organs of nutrition
into a condition to build up the body.
Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery
deals directly -with the stomach and
blood. It seeks to bring the stomach up
to the level of strong, healthful food,
when this is done the body gains in
strength, puts on flesh, throws off dis
ease, and. enters on a new life. That
these results follow the use of 'Golden
Medical Discovery ' is proved by the tes
timony of thousands of weak, rundown,
men and women and by their cure, by
the use of 'Discovery,' of diseases of
lungs, heart, kidneys, liver, etc., which
originated in the disease of the stomach
and its allied organs of digestion and
"Three years ago I had the grip,"
writes Mrs. Tillie Linney, of Gravel
Switch, Marion Co., Ky. "It settled ou
my lungs, and the doctor said I had
consumption. I took six bottles of
'Golden Medical Discovery,' and am
thankful to say I am entirely well."

Mr. J. E. Tuck, a manufacturer or
cigars, aged thirty-three years, whoso
address is VI Market street, Philadel
phia, Pa., writes: "I sometimes uso.i
cigars to excess and suffered from a
pain in my stomach for over a year:
A doctor pronounced it catarrh >f
the stomach, and warned me to stop
smoking, which I did for a while, but
found it Impossible to refrain from
indulging, and the pain returned. One
day, in my office, an express messen
ger mentioned Ripans Tabules, ami
with little or no faith I tried them
and continued smoking at the same
time, and obtained relief at once.
After taking fourteen small five-cent
boxes I feel entirely relieved, and do
not wake in the morning suffering. I
have reduced the dose of four a day
to one after dinner, and feel like a
different person. I feel that I cannot
praise them enough, and always have
a box in my drawer. I recommend
them all I_ can, I have no objections
to you using my name and letter as a
testimonial for advertising, and will
cheerfully explain more fully to any
one who may call, the nature of my
trouble and the relief I now feel."
There is scarcely any condition of 111 heath
that Is not benefited by the occasional use of a
R.I.P.A.N.S Tabule, and the price, 10 for 5
cents, does not bar them from any home or
justify any one in enduring ills that are easily
cured. For sale by Druggists.
