Colonel McClure, publisher of tho
magazine in which the story appeared,
declared while in Washington recently
that he had every figure investigated

Henry T. Rainey, the man who ex
ploded the Cromwell -Taft-Obaldia
bomb in congress, has been for the
last two weeks one of the most talked
about men in Washington.
"I am not through with the Panama
canal case," he said recently. "There
is a lot more to tell about WTilliam
Xelson Cromwell, or rather, the busi
ness methods of Mr. Cromwell, who
has received the public endorsement
of President-elect Taft. I will address
the house again on the Panama canal
within a short time. I will have abund
ant proof for everything I say.
"In the meantime I wish it to be un

congress to resist a subpoena to tes

Meets With Bad Accident. Eric An
derson, father of Alderman Frank W.
Anderson of -the Second ward, was the
victim of an accident at the Deere
shops Thursday 'evening. While at
tempting to place a doubletree in a
machine the wood flew backward and
prise would not bear close scrutiny, no
one appeared to be able to get th3
necessary facts to substantiate these
beliefs. If a member endeavored to;
make a little investigation for himself,
he soon found himself confronted with
a mass of official red tape that defied

"Another fizzle," said the republi
cans. "There is no scandal in the
Panama canal, and none can therefoie
come out of it."
Some of the majority party remain
ed to hear what Rainey had to say.
His speech didn't listen altogether like
a fizzle, and for the first time there
was real fear among many republican
members of congress over the Panama
canal graft charges. The situation
was not improved on the following day
when Rainey announced he was ready
to answer any questions in connection
with his charges. He read a telegram
from Charles P. Taft in which the lat
ter denied ever having had any trans
actions with Cromwell or anyone else
on the ''Panama canal. Rainey read
from the congressional record the par
agraph in which reference had bean
made to Charles P. Taft which showed
there was nothing for Rainey to retract.
No Aid from Nevmpapera.
Republican members believed they
had a trump card to . use against
Rainey if all other means failed.
Rainey was charged with having se
cured his information from "a well
known source," the intimation bein
that the newspapers against which j
proceedings had been started by the
president had aided him.
"I have received no assistance from
any newspaper ia the world, ' declared
Rainey. "I have conducted my inves

The Facts About Peru-na.
Ia Perona an alcoholic beverage in disguise ? Is it possible to use Peruna
as a substitute for whiskey? So people buy Peruna and use it as a toddy, or
a bitters, or a bracer?
' It would be the easiest thing in the world for any one to demonstrate the
falsity of such statements. Let any one go to the drug store and purchase a bot
tle o f Peruna. Let him undertake to use it as a beverage, or take this remedy in
doses considerably larger than those prescribed on the bottle. Would the result
be alcoholic intoxication? Nothing of the sort Let any one try it and see.
- Peruna is a medical compound quite heavily loaded with medicinal ingred
ients. If taken in doses larger than prescribed it would produce a positive
drug effect. No one could take it as a beverage. If any one doubts these state
ments, try it and see. . We know that Peruna cannot be used as a bever
age; that it will not intoxicate; that it cannot be used as a substitute for
liquors. We guarantee that PERUNA CONTAINS NO CHEAP WHISKEY
OB ANY OTHER WHISKEY, for that matter.
It contains a small per cent, of cologne spirits, absolutely essential to dis
solve and hold in solution medicinal ingredients, but the drugs contained in
Peruna prohibit its use as a beverage. It would be the easiest thing in tho
world for any one to demonstrate this if they chose to do so.
Peruna is sold everywhere. THE INGREDIENTS ARE PLAINLY
PRINTED ON EACH BOTTLE. It has been said over and over again that
chemists have analyzed Peruna and found it to contain only cubebs and
whiskey. Now we challenge any chemist to demonstrate any such statement.
Let any one who has even a smattering knowledge of chemistry purchase a
bottle of Peruna and see whether or not it contains whiskey, find out for him
self whether or not it is composed of cheap whiskey and cubebs. Of course,
cubebs is one of the ingredients of Peruna, but there are many other ingred
ients. It contains hydrastis canadensis, corydalis formosa, collinsonia, and at
least four other medicinal ingredients. To be sure, no chemist could so ana
lyze Peruna as to be able to identify the various medicinal ingredients. This
is beyond the ability of any chemist. But any ordinary chemist would be able
to say that Peruna is heavily loaded with medicinal ingredients of some kind
in addition to cubebs. , .
Now why are these statements repeated when their falsity could be so
easily demonstrated? Simply because there is continued hostility toward Pe-
' runa on the part of the medical profession. Very likely the magazines which
took up the crusade against Peruna and denounced it as a cheap beverage
were misled by statements of the medical profession. Probably they were
sincere in their attitude towards it But now, after all these thing, have been r here they Zy Vw

On February 13, 1908, Rainey made
a speech on the Standard Oil company
and the protection it had received
from the republican party that was
used as a campaign document in the
last national election. Two million
copies of this speech were circulated.
He also exploited the business meth
ods of the watch trust in a speech in
the house in 1906, of which a million
and a half copies were circulated in
the last campaign.
It was Rainey who introduced the
lesolution providing for the removal
of the body .of John Paul Jones. At
his own expense Rainey made an ex
tended investigation to learn the prob
able burial place of Jones, which was
a mystery for several years. He fin
ally located the body in a church yard
of Paris, and had congress appropriate
$10,000 for its removal to America.
