Surprise Sprune in Senate Caucus
when Senator Bacon of Georgia was
Defeated. Jill man Issues Warning.
Washington, March 7.?After spend
ing the greater part of today in cau
cus the Democratic senators succeed
ed in agreeing upon candiates to fill
only three of the offices of that body.
These were: Senator James P. Clarke
of Arkansas, to succeed Senator Gal
lnger of New Hampshire. Republican,
as president pro tern of the senate;
the Rev. EL J. Pettyman of the District
of Columbia to succeed the Rev. U. G.
B. Pierce as chaplain aid Charles P.
i Hlggins. a real estate dealer of St.
, Douis, to succeed E. Livingstone.Cor.

Senator Clarke was elected by a
vote of 27 to 14 over Senator Augustus
! O. Bacon of Georgia, who alternated
! with Senator Gallinger in the ofllce
j of president pro tern throughout the
last session and whose election had
been considered practically a certain
ty since the Democrats gained con
The result of the election caused
considerable stir, the friends of Sen
ator Bacon feeling that he had not
been fairly treated.
At the afternoon session Senator
Smith tendered his resignation as a
member of the steering committee, to
which he had been appointed only
yesterday. Mr. Smith, who had been
especially zealous in his support of
Senator Bacon, said he felt his col
league had been made to suffer on his
account. He was induced to withdraw
the resignation later, but not until
there had been a general discussion
of the* affair.
Senator Bacon himself said he had
been unprepared for the defeat, for
he had not known there was any oth
er applicant for the office. He added
that if he had been Informed that any
other person desired the honor he
would have withdrawn from the race.
Senator Hillman spoke at some
length, charging Mr. Bacon'c defeat
to the ntomperate desire on the part
of dome senators to do away with the
established customs of the senate by
retiring the older men In the Interest,
of the new. He found In Senator
Bacon the first victim of the modern
crusade and uttered a warding
against proceeding too far along this
Deafness Cannot Re ('nred
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There Is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that Is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness Is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachlan Tube. When
this tube Is inflamed you have a rum
bling sound or imperftct hearing, and
when It Is entirely closed Deafness is
the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube
restored to Its normal condition, htar
Ing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out cf ten are caused by Ca
tarrh, which is nothing but an inflam
ed condition of tho mucous surfaces.
We will give Ono Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
