W. OAKLEY COFFEE, H. D.
A full Invcytijration of tbe New Mfthoil o( treating deaf ness originated
hy Pr. Coffi-e, has Ix-cn made ly 50 leading citizens this week, and they find
that It positively does cure, or materially benefit every ease of ehronic
catarrhal deafness. They find that he has cured over three hundred deaf
people here. If you arc, deaf, or hare any disease of the Eye, Ear, Nose or
Throat, do not tail to consult the doctor while here.
Consultation free. Read what some of his patients have to say:
Kct. T. S. Morning, of Muscatine, nays: "Ten years ago one evening,
after serviees at the church. I went home very warm and took a severe cold,
and it settled in the head and produced a puffy condition of the ears; niv
Toic sounded like I was in a barrel. In a short time noises commenced in
my ears, and from that time I grew rapidly worse, and in two years was
uite deaf. I consulted an oculist, and he gave me no encourage'ment, and
said I had chronic catarrhal deafness, and that it was incurable. I went
to Chicago and consulted two of the leading oculists and aurists there, and
the j told me the same, and that I was incurable. One of them treated me
for a month with no benefit: I constaatly grew worse after that, and began
using a dent i phone. Six weeks ago one of my friends went to Hock Island
and was treated by Ir. Coffee, and insisted on my going which I did. He
treated me three days, and I returned home with his instruments and med
icine much improved, and I have steadily gained until now lean lav aside
my phone and hear ordinary talk. I consider his treatment of deafness the
most remarkable boon to humanity of this age, and I advise every one deaf.
n pi aim iry h, rica or Kor, n makes nt uinerenec. II you are too poor
to pay, he will treat you gratis."
Miss Matilda Johnson, of near Reynolds, suffered constantlv with head
ache and dmzy spells for 13 years. She was treated, but received no bene
fit. She called on Dr. Coffee, who examined her eves and fitted classes.
This gave her immediate relief and there has been no pain in the head
Mr. K. II. I.awler, of Hock Island, had suffered from catarrh for 20
years and about 10 years ago he lcgan to get deaf with constant noises in
the head. Had a dryness and itching in his cars; would take cold very
easy and was always worse when he did. He was treated in Chicano for
four months, but received no benefit, and as a last resort ho called on l)r.
Coffee some four or five weeks ago and went treatment, and now his hear
ing Is improved, at least one-half and the noises entirclv gone.
The son of E. V. Simmons, of Davenport. Iowa, "had been graduallv
growing deaf for four years. Hisnose was stopped up so that he could no"t
breath through it at night and to sleep with his mouth open. He treated
with several doctors with no benefit until he called on Dr. Coffee three
weeks ago. He removed some tumors from his throat and head and
opened tin the passage to his ears and now his hearing is almost perfect.
W. II Allen, of Orion, 111., whose 12-year-old daughter has had dis
charging ears since she was 3 years old. which made her quite deaf, was
treated by Dr. Coffee and in ono'weck the discharge was stopped, and two
weeks after her hearing made perfect.
James Hornbock, of near Tort Byron, was so deaf that he had to use
an ear trumpet in order to hear auything, but after using Dr. Coffee's
treatment for three weeks he was made to hear an ordinary conversation.

Toluca, Ills.. April 8. The demonstra
tion of miners at this place has had the
effect intended for tbe time being at least
and all the mines here are closed. And
now that this is done the leaders of the
demonstration say that it is of no conse
quence whether the miners here work or not
as tbe oal is all consumed by the Santa Fe
railway and has but little effect on the
market. In which case there seems to
have been muc h cry over little wool. The
work here is not,ostensibly, suspended ow
ing to the mob. It is suspended by the
deliberate act of the men, but by a nar
row majority. .
Proceedings of the Mass Meeting.
The miners met in mass meeting after
the army had left. A man named Gibson
w.ts made chairman. The meeting was
called for the purpose of deciding whether
to suspend work or not. The coal miners'
army had been gone three hours, nnd the
men were free from intimidation. The men
were nearly equally divided on the ques
tion of work, and when u motion was be
fore the house favoring one or the other
side of the question those opposing
would make scoresof amendments, substi
tutes, etc., and confused the chairman so
much that he hardly knew what he whs
about. Finally a motion to susx't)d work
immediately prevailed and was voted
upon. It carried by such a nht majority
that a movement is expected by many to
rescind the action. The representatives of
the miners' army positively state that
there will be no further trouble whether
the mine here is operated here or not.
The Army of Strikers Appears.
The striking miners' army mnrcbeil up
cue mil ana then rode back again, is the
way the thing was done. They came into
the town early and stayed here uutil after
dinner. Iu the meantime Acting Governor
McGill arrived, and he addressed the
miners. lie told the miners that the sher
iff bad sent him a scare telegram that
showed that he the sheriff did not know
the situation a telegram that said there
was danger of bloodshed when there
wasn't a particle. But it. wasn't the sher
iffs fault; he had been misinformed. For
here was the army of miners and where
was the gore? Kverythiug was peaceable,
aud he advised the visitors to go home and
leave everything jreaeeable.
If there should be any rioting he would
have to do his duty as provided by In w.

confer with the Toluca men those who
wanted to work if they the strikers
wished, and try and get them to strike.
too. The army'B visit was based on just
grounds, and the men had done nothing
that cast a reflection on them. If his con
ference with the Toiuca men failed he
wanted the army to go back home any
way and thus snow that it was perfectly
peacetime anil law-aoiuing.
Ircsident Crawford also spoke, counsel
ing peace, and saying that the movement
was not a strike; it was a suspension for
the lienelit of the operators us much as the
During the course of his speech Craw
ford said: "The greatest curse to the min
ing industry is the blackleg competition of

the deplorable condition of tbe miners, and
which at last has caused them to turn
against the aggressor and demand a dif
ferent condition of things."

The Visitors Conclude to Permit Home

After the speaking a motion was made
mar ail tne miners not residents here im
mediately depart from the city and allow
the Toluca men to settle among them
selves about joiniug the movement. This
was unanimously carried and the meeting
it'l joiimed. Lieutenant Governor Gill and
11;, Devlin telegraphed for a special train
to take the miners to their respective
homes as soon as the above decision bad
been reached, nnd the men were in a verv
congenial mood when they learned that
they were not to march home. The train
arrived promptly and the army boarded
the thirty flat cars bound for Streator over
the hauta ie.
Tbe people of this city feel much easier
Eince s acparture ana the excicement
has died down. Ihe colored uieu here
have told on the streets that thev were
willing to take out their tools if the whites
were. Mr. Devlin says that if his miners
quit he will import negroes from Florida
to work iu the mines. If the miners here
do not return to work and any such nu
attempt is maae trouble is sure to come.
THE GREAT NORTHERN STrtlKE.
Debs' Union Declares It "On" for tbe
ST. PAUL. April 28.TAfter a brief con
ference witn f resiuent mil, the American
Railway Union committee has declared
the strike "on" over the whole Great
Northern system. It was supposed that
the conferences were closed Thursday, but
President Hill suggested that the men
try again, which they did, but without re
sult as they alwolutely refused either to
concede anythingor submit to arbitration.
Wheu asked for a statement of the situa
tion after tbe strike was declared Presi
dent Delis, of tbe union, said that a repre
sentative of each class of employes was
still in tbe city to watch developments, all
the others bavins gone borne. The last
conference with Hill, he said, was simply
to talk over some matters upou which
they thought II ill might throw some light;
it was really agoing over again of the
ground already traveled.
"As to the claims that he has enough
men to run the road, I believe Mr. Hill has
been misinformed by bis own friends, who
overestimated their numbers. Mr. Hill
told me he was assured that not one iu
twenty of the old employes were in
sympathy with the movement, and I re
plied to him that it was just the other
way and that he could not get oue man iu
twenty to continue at work. If he can get
the men, of course be will proceed to oper
ate the road, but I lon't believe be will."
Strict orders have been issued by the
committee that all strikers along the lino
stay in their homes and refrain from any
interference with the trains which the
company may attempt to move. "The
committee takes the ground," says Debs,
"that bavins annealed acrainst a wronir
that was inflicted upon them the Men
should not be asked to arbitrate. A pos
itive and definite injustice has been done
and they ask tcThave this rectified. It does
not admit of arbitration."
President Hill was called on immediate
ly after the order for a general strike bad
been promulgated and stated that be had
very little additional to say other than
What had already been given out. The
company, he said. nroDosed to operate its
roau ldepcndent of the American Ituilway
Union. . I
I do not tliini." said Hill, "that an?
great proportion of tbe men will obey the
order, and I do not anticipate any difficul
ty in getting men to operate trains. I in
tend that every wheel on the line shall lie
running in as short a time as possible, !
and tliis latest move of the committee does
not seriously alter the situation so far as
the company is concerned.'
"Should it transpire that the company
has been misinformed iu respect to the
number of its employes who will work and
that these employes ere not faithful in
sufiicieut numbers to operate the trains
will men be imported from tbe east to
take their places?"
lhat is something which will have to
be determined in the course of events. The
company does not wish to m place any of
its old men with outsiders, but tbe trains
will be run, and men must be had from
somewhere to operate them. VTe are not
alarmed or excited over the situation."
STRIKES ARE TRADE PARALY2ERS.
No Cse to Look for Great Improvement,
hat Still There It Some.
NEW Vouk, April 28. It. G. Dun &,
Co.'s weekly review of trade, says: . When
accounts of great strikes aud labor dis
turbances crowd all the newsjiapers it is
idle to look for much improve
ment in business. That every week
of idleness for so many men
must appreciably lessen the aggregate
power to purchase products of labor is
evident. But in spite of all some improve
ment still npiwars. Se'eral large auction
sales of textile goods have disturbed
markets and brought remarkably low
prices for fi.inuels uud blankets about 25
percent. Iielow the previous quotations,
and l.' jier cent, below the previous sales.
Prices of some scarce kiuds of wool have
advanced 1 cent, but new wool is being
taken at the lowest figures yet reported.
Continual sports of changes in the tariff
bill add to dilticnlties of producers and
dealers. ;eculative markets are practic
ing the philosophy of Alicawlxr, aud are
naturally lower. Corn is inactive and a
shade higher: pork, lard and coffee a shade
lower. With continual business depres
sion and new crops drawing near, even the
unlimited supplies of idle money do not
kindle speculative hopes.
The decrease iu liabilities of firms failing
still continues. The failure this week
have been ISO in the United States against
tl6 last year for the first time in many
months showing a decrease aud in Canada
20 against ; last year. The list includes
none of great importance.
