It Is said that children born of women
dieted to tba morphine habit are prac
tically morphine eaten from birth. Dur
ing the first few days of life, unless
morphine is Riven to them, they are very
apt to suffer a collapse, and this condi
tion may end In death, the child being
too weak to withstand the violent symp
toms which are similar to those which
follow the sudden withdrawal of the
drug in adult opium eaters.
The Pennsylvania railroad company
is making experiments for the Introduc
tion of a force pump and hose upon pas
senger locomotives for use in case of Are
on board the train. It is hoped that the
frightful burnings which often follow
collisions and other accidents may in this
way be avoided. The hose, which will
extend about the distance of six cars, is
carried up the tender. It is also proponed
to equip the train bands fully and train
them In a Ore drill. If the experiments
are satisfactory, a number of locomotives
will be equipped.
Tor Brooklyn Eagle thinks it would
not be enough for Oeneral Harrison to do
merely as well as Mr. Cleveland. He
must do belter or be will do worse. Re
form obliges. Progress is imperative.
Cleveland exceeded Arthur in reform ef
ficiency. Htrritton only by exceeding
Cleveland in the same direction can alone
keep to his measure. The demands of
the time grow with each presidency. The
people want better government every
administration. Stagnation is impose-,
ible. It is progress or retrogression. It
looks new like retrosrresHion.

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, and until tbe last low years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local rcmedies.and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable. Sci
ence has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease, and therefore requires con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh

not only would it adopt the reduced propor

put tba low proportional tariff into all inter,
mediate points between Chicagi and St

to give the state commerce fommission three
days' notice of tbe new raters, as required by
law, tbe tariff was at once quoted to ship

Men About All Qnlt Work Spring Val
ley Women Adopt a Pitiable Plan to
Spbjho Valuct, Ills., Aug. 23. Con
gressman Scott, tbe Pennsylvnia million
aire, will offer his locked -out miners here 75
cents per ton for mining from now until
May 1, 1890. This will be the first formal
proposition ot any kind made to tbe men
since the mines were closed down on the
80th of ApriL.
The Conditions Attached.
This proposal is not unconditional Mr.
Scott desires it to be further understood that
the company will not treat with any com
mittee representing any organisation in the
future, and that each man will have to seek
imploymeiit for himself individually. Sweet
Mid other Streator operators have offered
but 70 cents. The vein is somewhat thicker
there, but it is claimed by the operators here
that it is easier to dig coal in tbe Spring Val
ley mines than in the Streator district, on
account of tbe drvness of the minus.
Must Work or Get Out
The men now occupying company houses
who are unwilling to work on these terms or
ho do not begin work on or before Mon
day, ropt. 2, will be required to vacate the
houses occupied by them on or before that
date, or the company will take steps to re
gain possession. It is the opinion of a good
many that the miners will not accept the
above off .r. or at lwtt not until tlmir fellow.
miners at Streator have settle.!. They as
pect more and have been receiving a good
deal of substantial relief from Chicago and
elsewhere, an i tboj. my prefer to hold out
for some time yet The president of theorgan
ir ition here, T. J. Armstrong, advised that
as many of them as could leave tbe city to
seek employment elsewhere, and a great
many of the younger men have taken Frank
Lawler's advice and have recently left for
The Non-I'nlon Feature.
Tbe fact that no union will be recognized
will probably cause an unfriendly feeling
among tbe miners, and will be tbe bona of
Contention among tbe leaders here especially,
who may prevail on tbe miners to refuse tbe
offer. A break among the Italians, Belgians
and French may be expected, and trouble
will ensue if they are not upheld by the
majority of the men.

over 100 who have been working steadily,
and tbe same porportionate decrease is re

demanded by the men, but as long as no
settlement could be reached with tbe larger
operators all were ordered out Another

a low price as to leave a large surplus on

TWO FLYERS START FROM GOTHAM.
Tha Teutonic and City of New Tork Will
Strive for tha Honors Tha Tassels Start
la Perfect Trim and Only Fifteen Min
wtea Apart Each Ship Given a Careful
Overhauling In Preparation for tha
Nkw York, Aug. 22. The Teutonic, tbe
largest steamer afloat, and tbe City of New
York sailed yesterday for Queenstown. They
left within fifteen minutes of each otber, the
City of New Yrk taking tbe lead. Tbe
trip will be a memorable one, as the vessels
will be crowded to the utmost limit of speed.
For a week the two great flyers bave been
tied at their piers, whilo au army of men,
like trainers, groomed them for the race.
Their cargoes were discharged and new ones
taken in. Stevedores, watched by anx
ious ship's ofiieers, stowed tbe freight, so
that each ship was loaded to tha hair's
breadth of tbe line on which she steamed
test. The City of New York bad come in on
a level keel, but now she must be loaded till
sbe draws twenty-six feet forward and
twenty-five ait. The Teutonic came in
drawing twenty -five feet aft and twenty
three forward, and down sbe went to the old
lines, and then down six inches further.
Grooming the Racers.
Meanwhile tbe engineers bad not been idle.
The cylinder beads were removed and pistons
and cylinders examined and cleaned. Pumps
and journals were overhauled. Not a bear
ing but was examined, not a shaft or wheel
or rod that did not receive attention. Tbe
coal, tbe best ever mined in Pennsylvania,
was inspected, bucketful by bucketful, as it
was taken in, to make sure that it was tba
best. Never since steamships first ran waa
more care or better skill employed to aee
that tbe racers were ready for tbe starting.
A Talk with tha Captains.
Before the ships sailed a reporter talked
with the master of each. "Don't say a word
about the race," said Capt. Land. "We
don't race. We ar going to run as fast as
we can when we must, and take advantage
of every little fog to alow down and be com
fortable. We don't expect tba journals to
heat this time, tbongh, and I should not be
surprised if we made tttr time than we
did before. Everything is just right"
Capt Parsell was having a look over his
ship when a reporter spoke to him about the
coming trip. You may say," be said, "that
we are going over there safely, comfortably,
and just as fast as we can."
On on Their VowAge.
The run down tbe bay was made at mode
rate speed. Each ship had a pilot, and each
had, therefore, to check her speed at the bar.
It was there that the race really began.
Before that point tbe firemen and engineers
were simply getting things a-boiling ready
for tbe 3,00j-mile dash. But tue speed of
tbe City of New York across the lower bay
was considerably greater than that of tbe

"I have every reason to lielieva that they

When tbey left here Mrs. McDonald was dis

to-day, and that they went from here east on
charity tickets. Tbey proliablr sailed by a
