Washington
Letter.
(Prom Our Kegular Correspondent. 1
Washington D. C. June 2, 190 C.
Temporarily at least the IJeveridga
amendment to the agricultural appro
priation bill has been up in the
house. Everyone who eats meat and
agoud many who do not know by this
time that the Beveridge amendment
is the proposed legislation which let
loose sucb a storm when it was sug
gested to place government inspectors
in all ot the packing and interstate
slaughter honses owing to the dis
graceful filth and unsanitary con
ditions recently discovered in Chic
ago. The most deplorable state of
affairs was discovered through a per
sonal commission sent out by the
president. The Beveridge amendment
in consequence was put as a rider on
the agricultural appropriation bill.
The president threatened to publish
the whole report that had been made
to him if there was any attempt to
block the legislation, but the story
got out and the papers of the country
commenced to print columns about
the matter so that the packers, feeling
that almost the worst had been done
already, have tried their best to block
the bill in tho house.
The excuses for holding up this
nationally important piece of legisla
tion are manifold. It is hard to say
how many of them come from the
friends of the measure and how many
from the enemies in disguise. Tho
packers have not had the nerve to
fight the legislation openly, but have
tried to make the cattle producers
fight their battle,- by assuring them
that if tbe cost of the inspection is
saddled on tbe packers, they will take
it out of the price of cattle. Al
though the aggregate cost of the in
spection would be something like ?2,
000,000 it would amount to only about
five cents pei bead of cattle slaughter
ed so that it is plain to see that tbe
desire to shift the cost of the in
spection is only a cloak to the killing
of the bill altogether. If this in
spection were paid for by an annual
appropriation, the inspecting force
would be a fixed quantity. After just
so many inspectors had been assigned
to duty, ' there would be no more
available. This is what the meat
trusts wants. A certain number of
inspectors are necessary for their in
terests, as they cannot sell meat
abroad unless it bears tbe official
stamp of this government. But if
anyone could have the government
inspection who was willing to pay for
it, the force of inspectors would be a
flexible quantity. All of the inde
pendents who are now kept out of the
export meat business by the trusts,
would be able to break in and there
would be enough inspectors to thor
oughly safeguard the interests ot the
public in all sections ot tbe packing
houses and prevent the lqwbreaking
that according to all accuunts, the
trust has engaged in for years. The
legislation iv question is in a very
perilous state, and it is doubtful if
the bill will finally get through con
gress without material modifications
likly to impair its usefulness and
leave just the loophole that the meat
trust wants thruugh which to escape
any inconvenience or diminution of
its profits.
One of the most surprising and
shocking events that has happened in
public life recently was the suicide
this week ot representative "Bertie"
Adams of Philadelphia. Mr Adams
was best known throughout the
country as the famous author of the
whipping post bill so crushiugly de
feated some weeks ago. Now what
ever may be one's personal convic
tions on the subject of the whipping
po3t as a punishment for crime of any
sort, uo one can deny that wife beat
ing, tor which it was to be the punish
ment is worthy of almost any penalty
that can be devised tor it. The bill
bad the serious endorsement ot a
great many serious minded people,
aud the president in his impulsive
fashion, bad given it bis hearty sup
port and said that it was a good thing
and ought to be shoved along. But
for some reason or other, the house
did not take kindly to it, possibly
because more men vote than women,
and the bill was laughed out of court.
Mr Adams felt tbis very keenly,
though it is not supposed that it had
much bearing on t: is suicide. But so
sensitive was he about it that one
risked the loss of his friendship ever
after wbo mentioned the whipping
post in his presence.
The real cause of bis death was ex
plained by him in a note to speaker
Cannon, lie had become involved
financially, and while he was generally
regarded as a rich man, be was in
reality on the rocks in money matters.
He was a great society man, a well
known club man, a regent of the
Smithsonian Institution, and his
death was not only a great surprise to
everyone, but will be a cause of
genuine rerget. There were plenty
of people abundantly able to help
him aud who would have helped him
if they had kuown he needed it.
It has been reported that the house
nud senate conferees were on the
verge of au agreement as to tbe rate
bill But this is not true. Two of
the members of the conference com
mittee are going out of town and wif

be away for some days. Meantime
tbe remaining members will do the
best they can to come to an agree
ment. Some of th« features still in
dispute and likely to cause a prolong
ed wrangle are the provisions respect
ing express companies, bringing them
within the scope of the bill, tbe lodce
amendment declaring pipe lines
common carriers, and the provision
referring to sidings and switch con
nections. The house has aoceeded to
39 of the senate amendments while
the senate has receded from only
throe. But there is enough material
in the remaining questions to keep
the conferees in session several days
more.

MRS. LEDOUX ON TRIAL.
For the Murder of McVicar.
A jury was secured in the case of
Mrs Kmma Ledoux, on trial in Stock
ton for the murder of A. N. McVicar,
early Friday morning. There was
much less dilllculty iv securing tbe
jury than has beeu anticipated. On
Saturday the taking of testimony
was commenced. The Sacramento
Bee of Monday says:
It has been developed in tbe Lie
I 'mix murder case that each side will
have a different kind of poison to
advocate as the cause ot A. N. Mc-
Vicar's death. The prosecution will
contend that he died from the ad
ministration of morphine at the hands
of his ex-wife, and tbe defense that
his death was caused by a dose ot
cyanide ot potassium administered
by himself witb suicidal intent.
I'll o prosecution will attempt to
show that morphine caused Mrs Le
Doux's former husband's death by
means ot tbe chemical analysis of his
stomaob. The fact that he was taken
ill some time previous in Sun Fran
cisco, and that morphine was the
cause of his illness, will also be
introduced to bring out this conten
tion.
Tbe trunk in which the man's
cramped body was found was brought
into the court-room late Saturday
afternoon. The defendant cast her
eyes toward tbe table, and did not
once ionk upon the piece of evidence
and its bloody interior. Baggageman
Thompson, of the Southern Pacific
office, was called to the stand. He
identified the trunk. Assistant bag
gagemaster N. Vizelich testified that
he put tbe trunk on the Jamestown
train, but later, noticing that it bad
no check on it, took it off. Had tbe
trunk been checked it is doubtful
whether any trace would have been
found of if.
Mr Fairall made strenuous objec
tions against admitting the bloody
clothing of the deceased, but Judge
Nutter overruled them. The loose
clothing was found "in tbe trunk,
aud had evidently been placed around
the body so as to keep it from rolling
against the sides. Piece by piece
Chief linker identified tbe garments,
mo3t of which were red with blond.
Ihe defendant was observed to wipe
her eyes upon numerous occasions as
tbe clothing was being exhibited.
Women still continued to crowd in
the oourt-room, many of them with
children. The higbt of morbid curi
osity on the part of the female wit
nesses was reached Saturday after
noon, whoti a short recess was taken.
A dozen or mere ot them jumped
from their seats aud rushed over to
the other side of tbe room to see the
inside of tbe trnnk. Sheriff Sibley
was seated near by, and quickly
closed the lid before the curious
woman could peep at its interior.
The expert testimony commenced
by the swearing in as a witness of Dr.
S. E. Latta, an experienced and
eminent physician and surgeon, who
has devoted twenty-one years iv the
practice of his profession. He was
one of tho physicians who conducted
the autopsy upon the remains of Mc-
Vicar immediately upon their being
taken from the trunk and before the
thorax and abdominal cavity had
radiated their natural beat.
Concisely did the doctor relate the
condition of the body of McVicar as
he first saw it upon the slab at th^
mortuary. The eyes were dull and
sunken, the complexion of the lace
darker than other portions of the
body, while near the ears aud around
the neck was perceptible a bluish
color to tbe skin, the rest of the body
maintaining an ashy white color,
ordinarily accompanying death.
The testimony showed the body was
searched for fractures, dislocations
and, bruises, none being found. A
clot of blood tell from the nose as
the body was being turned on the
slab previous to an examination of
the back, but there was no indication
of hemorrhages. The organs were all
in a normal healthy condition. There
was a general presence in tbe body of
what was termed venus-congestion,
meaning accumulations in parts ot
the body ot dark colored blood. No
unusual odor was discovered in
smelling the mouth or other organs
of the deceased.
The thorax and abdominal cavity
was opened by the autopsy physician
and every organ of the body, luciud
Treating Wrong Disease.
Many timos women call on their family
physicians, suffering, as they imagine,
one from dyspepsia, another from heart
disease, another from liver or kidney
disease, another from nervous exhaustion
or prostration, another with pain here and
there, and in this way they all present
alike to themselves and their easy-going
and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, sep-
arate and distinct diseases, for which he,
assuming them to be such, prescribes his
pills and potions. In reality, they are all
only tymatpnu caused by some uterine
disease. The physician, ignorant of the
cause of suffering, encourages this prac-
tice until large bills are made. The suf-
fering patient gets no better, but probably
worse, by reason of the delay, wrong
treatment and consequent complicate. 11s.
A proper medicine like Dr. Pierces Pa-
vorite Prescription, directed to the cause
would have entirely removed the disease;
thereby dispelling all those distressing
symptoms, and instituting comfort in-
stead of prolonged misery. It has been
well said that "a disease known is halt
cured."
Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription is a
scientific medicine, carefully devised by
an experienced and skillful physician,
and adapted to woman's delicate system.
It is made of native medicinal roou and
is perfectly harmless in its cficctsin, aw.i
eonditian of the system.
As a powerful invigorating tonic "Fa-
vorite Prescription" imparts strength to
the whole system and to the organs dis-
tinctly feminine in particular. For over-
worked, "worn-out.' "run-down," debili-
tated teachers, milliners, dressmakers,
seamstresses, "shop girls." house-keepers,
nursing mothers, and feeble women gen-

is the greatest earthly boon, being un-
equaled as an appetizing cordial and re-
storative tonic.

ing tbe lungs, heart, stomach, kid
neys, liver, gall, bladder, spleen,
intestines and the air passages were
carefully examined. Several tea
spoonfulls of a thin watery substance
present in the stomach were remeved
and placed iv a vial for chemical
analysis.
The direct examination dealt gener
ally upon all observations arising
from the uost-moitem examination.
The direct question was not asked
Dr. Latta, whether or not be knew
what caused tbe death of McVicar,
and it probably would not have been
consistent with the theory of the
prosecution to put such an interroga
tory. The results of the te3ls made
by chemists will be relied upon to
establish tbe direct cause of death.
Several attempts were made by as
sistant district attorney McNoble to
restrict tbe searching and technical
examination of Dr. Latta made by
attorney Fairall, but the court seem
eJ to believe the attorney was within
bis province and allowed him full
scope in covering the Meld of medical
research, lully covering not only
anatomy atmospheric and chemical
conditions but also toxicology.
Reference bad been made in direct
examination to five contusions found
upon the scalp of McVicar during the
autopsy. Upon cross-e.xamination he
was asked whether or not they were
produced before or atter death, and
tbe answer was "before death." Tbe
question was then put, "Did the
blood flow from the nose before or
after death?" and the answer was
again, "before death."

-Only Me."
There may be a world of pathos and
even of rebuke In a very few words,
and so the rather thoughtless wife of
a contributor of ours discovered recent
ly. She has two sweet little children,
both girls, and, almost without know
ing it, she made a pet and favorite
of the younger and prettier child.
"Sweet," as she called her, had every
care and attention lavished upon her,
and good natured neglect was more or
less tbe portion of the elder.
The mother was sitting in her bed
room quietly reading recently when the
soft patter of tiny feet sounded on tbe
stairs.
"Is that you, Sweet?" she called.
"No, mamma," was the sad reply;
"It isn't Sweet — it's only me!"
That pathetic little "Only me!" haunt
ed the wife of our contributor for long
er than she would have cared to admit,
but a change has since marked her
treatment of her eldest born.— London
Tit-Bits.
Mileage of the Blood.
The mileage of the blood circulation
reveals some astounding facts in our
personal history. Thus it has been cal
culated that, assuming the heart to
beat 69 times a minute at ordinary
heart pressure, the blood goes at the
rate of 207 yards in the minute, or sev
en miles per hour, 10S miles per day
and G,S2O miles per year. If a man
of eighty-four years of age could have
one single blood corpuscle floating in
his blood all his life it would have
traveled in that same time 5,150,808
miles.
Watch and See.
A well known horseman describes a
fact in natural history which may not
be generally known. It is that all four
footed beasts in making the first move
ment In walking, running or any sort
of forward motion always employ the
left hind leg as -a starter. Even a
child if put down on all fours and bid
den to advance in that position will
make the first move with its left leg,
its hands at the time occupying the
place of an animal's fore legs.
An Accomplished Fact.
"Grandma, may I take that piece of
chocolate you left ou the table? I will
be so good."
"Yes, you may take it."
The little girl does not move.
"Why don't you go aud get it?"
"Oh, grandma, dear, I ate it first!"
Something He Had Forgotten.
Small Boy— Mister, kiu you change a
ten dollar bill? Mister — No, sonny.
That belongs strictly to my wife's
share of the domestic duties. I might
have been able to change one long ago,
but I'm clean out o' practice now.
An Awful Stab.
"And you call this chair unique?
Why, It isn't any older than I am!"
"Well, ma'am, that may be, but it's)
antique, all right."— Houston Post.
Exaggerated.
A publisher advertises: " 'The Wives
of Henry VIII.' Third thousand."
Surely there Is some exaggeration here.
