THE HOCK ISLAND AUG US, TUESDAY, AUGUST 13, IE39.
Til Ij DAILY AUGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Tuesday, AcooiT 13, 1889.
Vincknnks, lod., has just produced n
original judge. A saloonkeeper was to
be tried before him for selling liquor
without a license, and the case had ex
cited to much interest that a crowd was
expected to be present. Accordingly
the jadee hired a hall and charged all
spectators ten cents admission. This
idea might not be a bad one for many of
onr cities where court expenses are run
up to an extravagant sum.
Wrrn as close attention to prearranged
details as a theatre programme, the
Pennsylvania republican convention got
tbroueh its work in short order. The
proceedings illustrated the dry rot that
possesses the party in that state. The
Tittsburg Pint says evrry move was in
dicated by Senator Quay a couj.lo of
days before the convention met, and
there was unswerving loyalty in execut
ing his decrees as presented by the sub
bosses. Tbe stale has never seen many
such spineleH exhibition of doughfitce
It is reported from Washington that
there is a movement on foot to try and
get congress at its next session to pasa an
act admitting Millet's great picture, "Tbe
Angelus," free of duty. It will he re
membered that Mr. James F. Sutton, of
the American Art association, purchased
this picture at the recent Serrctan sale at
Paris. The picture cost ,116.130. There
is a duty of 30 per cent levied on works
of art, and conarqurntlj the duty on
"The Angrlus" would amount to $34,839.
A good many protectionists, including, it
is said, Mr. John Wannamaker. Mr.
James O. Rlaine and others, are in favor
of admitting the picture free of duty.
Of course, they will st that people who
will oppose their proposition are boors
and churls. An eminent democat, con
versing with a correspondent of the St.
Louis 7-h.'i, said that while he was as
much of a lover of art as Mr. HUme, Mr.
Wannamaker or any other republican, still
be was opposed to making an exception
of "The An pel us" at the custom
house. He said that just so long as the
tariff barons and the cormorauts of the
east itist on taxing the poor man's
blankets and poor man's clothes that he
would insist on taxing works of art. He
said that it was the silliest of twaddle for
a certain class of people to talk of taking
the duty oft spirits used in the arts or off
works of art as long as custom house tax
ation for protection was the rule. He
said that if congress would pass an act
allowing everything that arrived on the
same ship with "The Anpelus" free of
duty that be would support it; but that he
would not make an exception in favor of
"The Angelus," although he felt proud
that such a splendid work of art was
possessed by Americans. He said that
he hoped that Mr. Mills, Mr. Carlisle and
the otber tariff reformers in the next
house would sit down on the proposition
to let in "The Angelus" free just as long
as the rich men who owned "The An
gelus" insisted on the poor man paying
duty on blankets.

Claiming an Aeiaal Treaty.
Tbe Gorman press seems to lie quite gener
ally agreed that so much bas lsen accom

even go so far as to say that a treaty is in
course of preparation. This, however, is
probably incorrect It s not believed here
that Lord Salisbury v-otild undertake to
commit any future government of England
to the programme outlined in such an agree

force of a treaty so long as be bold the reign
of power Germany will be satisfied without

How the French Feel About IU
The French press is in a perfect ferment
over this whole business, and the opposition

having driven England into tbe arms of Ger
many by tbeir foolish policy of irritating
bar, notably in tbe refusal to sanction the
Egyptian conversion a-hemA, upon which
England bad aet her I eart, and in tbe re
peated protests against I British occupation in
Egypt, alout wbicb France need not have
cared a button. Even so conservative an
organ as La France, w lie upholding tbe re
fusal of M. SpLfler, the foreign minister, to
sanction the conversion, still condemns tbe
petty policy of irritatios to which the gov
ernment resorted in Its treatment of Eng

Washixotoh Crrr, Aug. 11 Dr. Ham
mond tried some more experiments yester
day with tbe elixir or life, or tonic, as be
prefers to coll it. The material was taken
directly to the laboratory from the slaughter
house and tbe patients notified that an injec
tion would be made in a few minutes. Tbe
gland was from an almost full-grown sheep.
The liquid was about of the consistency of
water, limpid, aud opalescent Taking a
small hypodermic syringe the doctor filled it
with the mixture. Then tha needle-like
nozzle was screwed into tbe syringe and tbe
first subject called in. lie was a man 63
years old, a victim of muscular rheumatism
in the left arm. The doctor pinched up a
piece of the skin between the thumb and
forefinger, ran the needls of tbe syringe in
under tbe skin, pressed the piston, and thirty
dro or the elixir, just forty minutes after
the sheep was" killed, was injected into tbe
rheumatic's circulatory system. His arm is

Well as ever.
Cured of Heart Trouble.
Patient No. 2 was 3 years old, and had
heait trouble. He bod been taking tbe
elixir ahout a week, and now his heart beats?
as it hboulil, with never a skip. Case No. 3,
bad Ihe elixir injected but once ln-fore, and
he said yesterday morning that he felt
much lstter. His trouble is nervous proe
trali m. The fourth patient was a man &i
years old, suffering from impotoncy.
IV. Hammond bas not yet tried the treat
ment on any but male patients, but be bas
in bis eye a lady of middle age who is a vic
tim of melancholia on whom the elixir may
tie tried. The ladies will watch the result
of this experiment with close attention.
The patients treated seem unable to de
scrilie tlie t,flecte of the elixir, or rather una
ble to compare it to tbe effects of otber med
icine. No. 1, the rheumatic, says it makes
bim feel younger and stronger and better
every way. No. S, the nervous man, says be
is unable to feel any effects of any sort He
has also lieen in the habit of using bromides,
and this may retard the action of the elixir.
TRYING IT BY WHOLESALE.
Esperlnienta at Cleveland on Thirty-Two
Men and Women.
Cleveland, O , Aug. 11 The question of
the elixir's eflicacy in restoring ltt energy
and building up wasted systems was submit
ted yesterday to a jury as intelligent prob
ably as could have been selected. It was not
a jury of twelve, but a tribunal of Shirty
two ladies and gentlemen. That their, ver
dict might have weight in the scientific
world esHs?ial care was taken in selection.
Tbe first requisite was that tbey should have
some positive ailment The next considera
tion was that tbey should be persons of
sound intelligence and good standing in the
community. Dr. H. C. Brainerd, in conduct
ing the exerimenta, made a number of tests
on a small scale, as has been done in otber
cities, and than determined upon a final trial
of tbe new energy generator. He proceeded
in the work of making the final experiments
with care and close attention to details. In
tbe morning be visited Brigbtofi and selected
victims for tlie slaughter from large flock
of sheep. They were killed in his presence,
and be secured tbe partsdemred and returned
to tbe city.
Will Make the Test Complete.
Tbe jurors, who were qualified for service
by having tbe fluid injected iuto their sys
tems, comprise! twenty -four men and eight
women. There were attorneys, doctors,
ministers, and business men. One was a
lightning manipulator who was suffering
from telegraphers' paralysis. It was ar
ranged that they should make a written
statement of the effect of the experi
ment, and to-day they will submit tlie re
ports. In a large numlier of the cases two
reports will lie required Upon receiving
tbe statements Dr. llraiuerd will compile a
concise and perfectly can lid report of the
result of the ex rini-nt. He feels that bis
scientific reputation is in a measure at
stake, and be will present the situation in its
proper light If tbe experiment is a com
plete failure the reiort will say so, and if it
is followed by the fullest measure of success,
that fact a ill be duly aet forth.

Coincidences in the Maybrick

Livxrpool, Aug. 11 The following com
ments on the Maybrick case have been ca
bled to a New York paper by its correspond
-The law of the slate of Missouri demanded
the neck of Hugh M. Brooks, alias Maxwell.
And it got it. The English law now demands
the neck of Mrs. Maybrick. Is that retal
iation which the yonng Englishman invoked
with his dying breath so soon to be harvested?
The present week will probably see a response
to the question. Apart from the fact that tbe
verd ct of the Jury In Mrs. Mavbrick's case
was returned just one yesr to the day. date
and hnnr from the execution in the St. Louis
jail, there are many points of resemblance be
tween the two cases. Maxwell was a stranger
in a strange land. Sols Mrs. Maybrick. He
was convicted mainly npon circumstantial
evidence. Mo with the Liverpool prisoner.
Other Points of Anslorr.
In Maxwell's rase the crime, if it was a
crime, was accomplished by the use of drugs.
Here airain the two cases fit. He was prao
ticaily penniless, and the means for his de
fense were provided by relatives across the
water. He told the jury his own story of the
tragedy, confidently relying upon it to secure
bis acuufttal. Instead of this it was fonnd to
lie the most telling piece of testimony against
him. And so, rhapter by chapter, a com
plete analogy between the various incidents
of the two celebrated cases can be traced.
Wheiher it will be carried to the end remains
to be seen.
Maxwell's Dvlns; Hnpe.
It was the hnrlen of Maxwell's talk during
theniiMit that preceded his taking off that he
honed that Home American would sooner or
later lie placed In his po-ition, and that the
English authorities would b just as chary of
mercy as had been those of Missouri in his
own ca.se. For nearly two hours from mid
night of Aug. (the wss bnsily encased In

tives aud friends in the old country. In all of
them he had adjured them to recollect his
fate If ever the time came when the lifenf an
American was placed in jeopardy in an En
Appeal to the Knglish I'enple.
As a finale he drew up an address to the
"People of Eng'and." in which bo declared
that his conviction w-as unlawful, unjust and
unfair, and cited numerous incidents in his
trial in nisrt of the allciit:on. He laid
stress upon the fact that the reqnet of tin
British government for a reprieve had been
ret used by Governor Moot-chouse, and insisted
that the governor had lecn urged to disregard
the request his-ause he iMaxwelli was an Ku(c

take notice of the interference of tho I'nited

The address concluded, as originally writ

ireance whenever possible, hut, on the advice
of the Catholic pticst who attended him in his
last hours, this was t-trii ken out. The ad
dress, however, was published thioiiKhnut the
I'uiteil Kingdom and liix-rally commented
upon by the it.-ss, and there is no tellini; how
largely the fate of Maxwell may bean is-ue
in dfidinicthe question of life or death for
Mrs. Maybrick. Maxwell' family, it is inter

Liverpool, and the fcelinc in that tow in fa

The Home Secretary's Hope.
Los don, Aug. 11 Memliersof parliament
whose relatious with tbe home secretary are
intimate express the belief that be will post
pone action in the case of Mrs. Maybrick un
til the last moment, with the idea that she
may yet confess. This was tbe course Mr.
Matthews pursued in the case of Lipsky, and
while the whole English nation was howling
for bis pardon, as an incoeent man, tha- mur
derer very ungratefully confessed bis crime,
and Mr. Matthews was vindicated. This
manoeuvre, however, can hardly be expected
to work twice. Mrs. Maybrick has undoubt
edly been posted, and if she is guilty will be
lei to ex-ct a pardon up to the moment she
ascends the gallows, and so a confession is
hardly among The possibilities.
