RUSSIAN MOK?OLS MAY REBEL
Siberian Tribes Looking for the
Early Reincarnation of the God
Airol and Deliverance.
Bijesk, Government of Tomsk, Rus?
sia, June 18.-The agitation among
the Mongols inhabiting the Altai re?
gion is increasing over the appearance
of the god Airol, who they believe will
deliver them from a foreign yoke and
create an independent kingdom. The
Mongols are gather!Lg in thousands
in answer to the summons of men who
are proclaiming themselves to be the
apostles of the god Airol These men
are inspiring awe among the ignorant
nomads by means of the alleged mir?
acles carried out with the aid of elec?
trical and pyrotechnical devices.
These so-called apostles preach the
reincarnation cf the god Airol and
pretend to carry from him messages to
the people saying that he has not been
happy since he left them 200 years ago,
coincident with the date of the Rus?
sian occupation of the country.
They warn the Mongols to abstain
from wearing white or red clothing,
these being Russian national colors,
and to wear only blue and y allow, the
national colors of Japan ; urge them
to worship the sun and moon, which
are the gods of Japan and especially
the overgod Burhan, who is the only
true god of the gods.
Reports from Irkurtsk say that dis?
content among the Mongol and Kal?
muck tribes is rife, owing to the
preaching of the new prophets, who it
? is said have been discovered to be
Japanese who have passed the winter
in caves in the mountain fastnesses.
The seriousness of the situation lies in
the fact that the tribes in which the
revolt is fostered inhabit both sides
of the trans Siberian railroad and
number so many thousands of poten?
tial fanatics, and that should any
serious uprising occur it might inter?
fere materially with railroad commu?
GORE FOR BRIGHT'S DISEASE.
Prof. Winfield Ayres Thinks He
Has Discovered Sure Remedy.
Believing he has discovered a method
for the cure cf Sright's disease, Prof.
Winfield Ayres, says The New York
Herald, made a report to the conven?
tion of the of thy American Medical
Atsociation iu Atlantic City yesterday
which startled his hearers by its im?
Prof. Ayres, who is associate pro?
fessor of urology at the Post-Graduate
Hospital in this city, said he had
made experiments which lesd him to
the belief that Bright's disease ia
curable in its earlier stages, and that
it is possible further investigation and
experiments may end in practically
complete victory over it.
He bassd his conclusions on ninety
three cases, forty three of which he
tabulated, and of those he cured en?
tirely nine patients. Twenty-five cases
showed marked- improvement, and j
only one failed to respond to the treat- !
ment. Heretofore all treatments have ?
been by the cse of medicine taken by j
mouth, and it has been found impos- ;
si ble to send through the blood drugs
strone enough to kill the germs.
Through the us<' of an instrument,
he injects the medicines directly in?
to the kidneys in such strength as
would be poisonous and cante certain !
death ii taken into the stomach. He j
ba^ found bis patients safe fiom karin, :
and al>o that the action is immediate I
and permacent. I
Dr. Ayres asserted that the remark- !
able feature is the ease with which j
the treatment may be administered,
and without pain or after discomfort
to the patient. The scourge ol
Liligi.ts disease, he frays, can be re?
duced, if not eradicated.
Under the method described by Dr.
Ayres a catheter is introduced direct?
ly into the kidney without making any
incision or using the knife at all.
To do this an instrument known as
the cystoscope is introduced into the
bladder, which is then lighted up by
an electiic light attached to th3 in?
strument, and by this guidance a long
catheter is inserted.
The medicines are then forced into
the kidneys. In this way drugs can
be used with safety which if injected
into tie blood would cause certain
death. The drugs used are those in
ordinary use among surgeons as anti?
septics and are in sufficient strength
to destroy the disease germs.
The professor called attention to the
laree number of patients who had been
suffering from ill defined symptoms,
which were attributed to nervous con?
ditions, neurasthenia, gastric trou?
bles, etc., in whom the microscope
showed the presence of the beginning
of kidney trouble, and who after the
kidneys have been cured reported these
symptoms to have disappeared.
From this the professor argued that
many of the ill defined pains and
aches which physicians have hereto?
fore found difficult to diagnose, are
really due to the beginning of kidney
troubles, which have not yet gone far
enough to be called Bright's disease,
but would develop into that disease
at a later date. He declares that un?
der the new treatment the development
can be prevented, and the great pre?
valence of Bright's disease materially

Baiters-What General Corbin
Thinks About Murdering a
Washington, D. C., June 19-Sena?
tor Spooner, the boss Republican kick?
er of Wisconsin, was represented in
Washington last week by an emissary
whose business it is to obtain the
asbistance of the President in the fight
against Governor La Follette. The
President shies off and is not inclined
to take a hand. It looks now as if the
diminutive Fuzzy Wuzzy of the Senate
might be disappointed in his ambition,
though the Republican Committee
has decided to seat his crowd. When
he gets to Chicago with his bolting
delegation, he will not find plain sail?

will be at Mr. Cannon's right when
th a convention is called to order. The
precedents he has studied will justify

Wisconsin bolters out altogether or
giving each contestant half a vote.
O, yes! A lively time at Chicago is

lhere has been considerable evidence
that tbe people of the District of
Columbia are tolerably well satisfied
with their form of government under
which ali their affairs are taken care
of by three commissioners; but local
self-government will be the slogan of
the delegation to the Republican na?
tional convention from this city, next
week. Dr. Robert Reyburn, and John
F. Cook, will put forth every effort
to induce the Republicans to incor?
porate a plank in their platform look?
ing to a really republican form of gov?
ernment for'the city.
There is active fermentation in mil?
itary circles here over the sudden ap?
pointment of Major-General Henry C.
Corbin to the command of the Phil?
ippine archipelago, relieving General
Wade. It is privately understood that
General Corbin does not at all like
the assignment. He has had the mis?
fortune not to be a popular officer, as
the record of blackballs in several aris?
tocratic clubs testifies, but this status
was materially improved by his mar?
riage with the wealthy and much liked
Edythe Patton not long since.
General Corbin's character as ? man
aid a soldier may perhaps be ini. red
by an interview which your corre?
spondent bad with him a year ago.
Fie was then Adjutant-General of the
United States army, a large, sturdy,
bluff man. I told him I had called
to see what was being done about
the case of Lieutenant Sinclair, of the
??rmy in the Philippines, who had
killed young Richter, a soldier ot his
company, deliberately, after two
hours and a half of torture, in which
be was at last strangled to death.
"Yes, I remember it," said the
General, "there has been a great deal
cf talk about it." f
"Apparently not too much, Gener
s.l," I ventured to say, "if the report
of the case is correct. It was what
we usually call murder."
"0, this case that,you are so excit?
"General," I interrupted, "I call
your attention to the fact that you
are not in the least excited, I have no
occasion to be."
"O, I don't mean you especially,"
explained Generai Corbie, "but these
anti-imperialists, and people all
around. The fact seems to be that
"his unfortunate young man forgot
himself for the time being and lost his
head-and I don't wonder at it ia
that d- Philippine climate. Before
he made that mistake he was consider?
ed one of the finest young men in the

'mistake,' General?" 1 asked. "Do
you forget the testimony as to what
Lieutenant Sinclair did? He commit?
"You call it murder," said the Gen?
eral, "buthe was tried for the alleged
offence, and acquitted."
"Certainly, General. Ile was tried
and acquitted by his comrades who
found that he had done the things
with which he was charged, and was
The General leaned back, asked his
interlocutor to be seated, and contin?
ued : "When.I think aboutit, and
my long service in the army, I be?
lieve, sir, that I have done worse
things myself, than Lieutenant Sin?
clair is said to have done."
"You have done worse things, Gen?
"Yes, I have. When I was out in
the West among the Indiana, one of
our men got fighting drunk and came
whooping up the company street und
yelling that he wanted to kill the Cap?
tain-that was me. I was not afraid.
He jumped into my tent and drew a
knife on me. I stopped and picked
op a root that lay beside my chair
and knocked him down with it. It
might have killed him; if I had, I
should have been just as guilty as Sin?
Your correspondent was astonished.
He reminded the General that one
case was simply self defense and the
other deliberate murder of an impris?
oned soldier, and reminded him fur?
ther thatjoung Richter was bound up?
on the gronnd ; that he was gagged
with a cloth stuffed into his mouth
with the end of a club ; that he was
tortured with ice water for two boars,
and was finally suffocated and died
under the torture.
"Where do you get these facts?"
asked General Corbin.
"There is but one place in the
United States, General," I answered,
l"where they can be found. I found
them in the records of your own office,
General." I added that General Cor?
bin had friends in the United States,
and perhaps some enemies, but tba:
he had not a friend or an enemy who
would not be astonished and grieved
i to think him capable of such a deed
as that of Sinclair's.
"Well," concluded the General,
"You came to inquire about the repu?
tation of young Sinclair, I say it was
It is known that General Corbin did
not 'like his removal from this city to
Governor's Island last fall, although
his gracious wife made for herself a
secure place in the - innermost circles
of New York society. He wi IL have

Detroit Tribune Points to Merger

The Tribune points ont the vast ter?
ritory reached by these roads, which
have become so closely affiliated, and
says that while an actual merger
would take much time, a mutual un?

seem to have befen consummated. The

W. F. Dargan, cf Darlington, a
Candidate for Congress.
Darlington, June 20.-Mr. W. F.
Dargan, a prominent and successful
lawyer, of Darlington, has entered the
race for Congress in the 6th district.
He was mayor of darlington, his na?
tive town, for three years, and at one
time ably represented this county in

Still the List Grows.
NewJ York, June 20.-The list of
those who perished on the Gen. Slo?
cum is growing at an alarming rate.
Bodies came to the surface today off
the shores of North Brother island
singly and in groups of twos and
threes until at dusk 102 additional
had been recovered. Every passing
steamer seemed to churn up the water
to such a degree that with its wash
one or more bodies would be [swept
into the beach. Between the hours
of 3 and 6 in the afternoon 45 bodies,
some of them badly mutilated, were
taken ashore by the searching parties.
This brings the total number of
bodies recovered up to 734, and yet
there are something like 300 unac?
counted for. A number of these are
among the unidentified at the morgue
and over on North Brother island and
the "unrecognizable" that have been
buried in the Lutheran cemetery on
Aiken, June 20.-Pat McGee, a ne?
gro laborer employed on the farm of
Mr. Henry Summerall near Aiken,
was struck by lightning during the
storm on Sunday night. McGee says
he was standing on his porch washing
his bands when the bolt came, and he
was knocked insensible for some tiin<\
Wnen be regained bis senses he found
that the bolt had struck him on the
right thigh and made a "burnt"
streak down his left leg, and, leaving
his body, had torn his shoes off. lt
seems that the electric fluid did not
enter his body. McGee will probably
bear the scars of bis first experience
with lightning to hi? dying day.
BRYAN TALKING AGAIN.
Former Candidate Says No Man
of Parker's Type Can be
Nominated by Democrats.
New York, June 19.-Wm. J. Bryan
arrived in this city touight. He said
he did not expect to see Charles F.
I Murphy or any leader of the anti
? Parker movement while in the city.
Questioned as to the general situation,
he said : .
"The men who are opposed to Judge
Parker's nomination will be in control
St. Louis. They will nominate the
candidates and prepare the platform
and it will not be the New York plat?
form or the New York candidate."
He added that he did not care to go
into the details in discussion of candi?
dates or the contents of the platform.
"I have already laid down certain
fundamental principles as to the rea?
son for not nominating some of the
men most prominently mentioned for
the place in the east," he added.
"Olney, Cleveland and Parker all come
within this class."
ROOSEVELT AND CORTELYOU.
Why the Former Insists on the
Latter as Chairman.
Washington, June 19.-War on the
appointment of Secretary Cortelyou,
chairman of the Republican national
committee, bas been transferred from
Washington to Chicago. The Presi?
dent has been appealed to by members
of the national committee, now in
Chicago, not to insist upon urging
the selection of Cortelyou. The Prsi
dent, however, is firm in his determi?
nation to have Mr. Cortelyou preside
over the national committee and there?
by hangs an interesting tale.
The Presidential politicians in the
Republican partv base their objcetion
to the selection of Cortelyou on the
ground of his inexperience and some
of^them charge him with having ori?
ginally been a Democrat.
The strongest opposition to Mr. Cor?
telyou is said to come from the great
business interests, which have been
obliged, for so many years, to furnish
the campaign funds for the Republican
party. It is no secret that the money?
ed interests of the country are afraid
of President Roosevelt.
Many of the men who have hereto?
fore been the most liberal contributors
to the Republican campaign fund have
declared that they will not contribute
a dollar to help elect Roosevelt. This
information duly reached the Presi?
dent, and it is said that he is prepared
to retaliate, if necessary, and trust to
good luck and his personal popularity
with the manses to pull 'rim through.
It is said that his objcet in having
Secretary Cortelyou at the bead of the
national committee is to intimidate
some of the great corporations, who
are opposing his election to the Pres?
Since the creation of the department
of commerce and labor, Mr. Corte?you
aud Jimmie Garfield, chief of the
bureau of corporations, have been in?
dustriously at work carrying ont the
law which permits the Government
officials to examine the business trans?
actions of ali the great corporations.
With all that information in his
hand, cr in his mind, it is net diffi?
cult to appreciate what a tremendous
power the Administration's personal
representative on the national com?
mittee would have if it became neces?
sary to resort to the "fat frying" pro?
cess as the campaign proceeds.
Republican leaders have tried to keep
this matter a secret, but a director of
one of the great trust corporatons,
while here a few days ago, let the cat
out of the bag, in discussing the po?
litical situation with some friends.
The reports sent out from Chicago
showing the feeling ot hostility to Mr.
Cortelyou by the Republican bosses
was the political sensation of the day.
At Democratic headquarters it was
said that the President bad played
sharp politics in forcing Cortelyou in?
to the chairmanship of the national
committee. It is said that the Presi?
dent will be in a position to know just
how each of the great corporations
behave during the coming campaign.
Metcalf Will Succeed Cortelyou in
Washington, June 20.-It can be
stated with definiteness that Repre?
sentative Victor H. Metcalf of the
third California district will succeed
Secretary George B. Cortelyou as the
head of the department of commerce
No change will be made in the de?
partment until the close of the present
fiscal year on the 30th instant.

Columbia, _ June 19-Unless candi?
dates file their pledges by noon tomor?

The campaign opens cn Tuesday at

tained all of the State officres will be
there for the opening addresses. They
will then go over to Manning, and
one or two other places, returning to
Columbia to keep up with the busi?
ness of their offices. A resolution
passed by the executive committee
was to the effect that State officers
who have no opposition should not be
required to make the whole circuit
but should appear at least once in
each Congressional district. A State
officer is usually a busy man and
attending all of the rreetings means
neglected and accumulated work.
