Maxoket Editor and Propriet r. i The need of more school accommo dations in the Brooklyn district is as suming such proportions that it looks aa though something will have to be done pretty soon. A correspondent in another column suggests putting up a new building on the corner of Bank and Porter streets. The tendancy seems to be in favor of new buildings instead of building additions to the old ones. (Although it is perfectly clear that a large majority of the house are just as strongly in favor, cf adopting the Mor gan resolution for the recognition of the belligerency cf the Cubans, which was adopted by the senate at the extra session, as fhey were at the extra ses sion, it is equally clear that they will not do i't. Czar Reed and his lieuten ants agree with the McKinley policy of waiting and will not give the house the opportunity to vote upon the Mor gan or any other Cuban resolution. Thus, the country is shown how mis taken it ha.9 been in supposing that, under our government, the majority rules, in either or both' branches of congress. The majority rules all right, when allowed to vote, but voting is only done in the house by Czar Reed's permission, and in the senate vctinr; is only done when the minority censsn'ts. 5: is very amusing, very indeed, to hear our republican friends abusing d'smcsrts for etting hold of a paying office now end then, and the crocodile tears that are tains Shed by Editor Wells would fill a tub. H is very much put out to think the board of public works elected Superintendent Rellly for ano'ther term as street in spector. If the charter did not give the commissioners the right to elect a superintendent cf streets, they would hardly do it, and if it does give them that right it looks as ?hough Mayor- elect Barlow got "mad" too soon, when he left the board meeting in a huff. He ehould have stood by his republi can colleague on the board, and not have deserted him when his vote was most needed. The reference to mak ing Commissioner Halpin's term for life fts laughable surely. .When the re publicans talk of appointing men for life It is time to look around. They have the only life men In town, and they are sorely distressed to think they can't make life positions for all the re publican office seekers. Now that we are about to be governed by a republi can mayor, why not get a law passed that he will hold office during good be havior. Yes, the antics of our repub lican friends when they think they are going to lose a paying office is heart breaking to the republicans. If the republicans could only get a man in as street inspector, the democrats might as well eay good bye to it, for the workers in the g. o. p. would rush up to Hartford and have the incumbent's term extended during Ms natural life. or during 'good behavior, which means the same thing; the same as they did with several cf the other paying posi t'ions. CURRENT COMMENT. Czar Reed isn't losing any sleep be cause of the existence of a decided ani-M&Kinleyish feeling among the republicans of congress. The democratic party at large en dorses the action taken by the demo cratic members of the house, in caucus assembled, in behalf of the Cubans and will- endorse any effort made in eiither branch of congress to help Cuba, The incongruous elements which were brought together by fright and the use of millions of dollars, and kept together long enough to elect a presi derj:, are now widely separated. Not a singje recommendation made by fheir president has the support of all the republicans in either house or senate. 1 THE GREAT HUXLEY. What Huxley the Great English Scien tist, Considered the Best Start Life. in The great English scientist, Huxley said the best start in life is a sound stomach. Weak stomachs fail to di gest food properly because they lack the proper quantity of digestive acids (lactic and hydrochloric) and pepto genie products; the most sensible rem edy in all cases of indigestion, is take after each meal one or two to of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets because they suppply in a pleasant, harmless form all the elements that weak stom achs lack. The regular use of Stuart's Dyspep sia Tablets will cure every form stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach. They increase flesh, insure pure blood, strong nerves, a bright eye and clear complexion, because all these re suit only from wholesome food well d gested. Nearly all druggists sell Stuart' Dyspepsia Tablets at 50 cents full sized package. Send for free book on Stomach Troubles tq Stuart Cq4 Marshall, Mich HOUSE ON SEALING. Adopts the Measure Just the Seriate. Passed In MU VOTED FOR YUEOS MISERS. President Sends to Senate Many 3S omina- tlons, Including Attorney General Mc Kenna. For Supreme Court Judge and Mr. Dawes For Comptroller. WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. The house passed a. bill appropriating- $175,000 for the relief of the people who are in the Tukpn river country, and also the bill passed by the senate to prohibit pelagic sealing- by American citizens. The former bill encountered practical ly no opposition. As passed the sum carri-d by it is to be expended under the Erection of the secretary of war for the purchase, transportation and istribution of subsistence stores. It provides that these subsistence stores may be sold at prices fixed by the sec retary, of war or donated where the people are unable to pay for them. It mpowers him to purchase reindeer and employ drivers, not citizens of the Unit ed States, and afterward dispose of the reindeer. The bill to prohibit pelagic sealing was warmly antagonized by Mr. John Bon of North Dakota, Mr. Loud of Cali fornia, Mr. Hepburn and others, and in the course oT the debate there were some exceedingly caustic criticisms of the course o our Bering- sea negotiations, past ;a.nd present. Mr. Johnson made the statement that while the seal herd had brought $70,000 into the treasury Since 1870, $500,000 had been spent po licing Bering- sea and $2,000,000 in nego tiations and other expenses. The bill was passed by a vote of 14S to 8. The house committee on immigration decided to make a favorable report on the educational test bill. This requires all immigrants on reaching here to be able "to read or write the English or some' other language. Mr. Bartholdt of Missouri and Mr. Louis Schade address ed the committee in opposition to the bill, and the former presented a pro test from the North American Turner association against it. Representative Ray of New York has Introduced a ' bill regulating absolute divorces and declaring marriages void in certain cases in the District of Co lumbia and the territories. The object is to make the divorce laws enacted by congress conform to the law of New Tork as the highest grade of the state codes and to install the proposed uni form marriage and divorce law to be obtained by constitirtional amendment. But one cause for absolute divoroe is allowed adultery. The innocent party may remarry; legal separation without permission of remarriage may be grant ed for drunkenness, cruelty or deser tion, and marriage may be declared void in cases where a former partner is living, lunacy at marriage, matri monial incapacity or lack of legal con sent. The law is intended to cover cases in Oklahoma. .Bimetallic Conference Discussed. WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. Mr. Wol- cptt of Colorado, chairman of the com mittee appointed by President McKin ley to secure, if possible, the co-opera-tionof foreign countries, in an interna tional conference upon tne sliver ques tion, said in the senate that the com mittee had not yet made a report to the president, and it was uncertain when a report would be made. Negotiations for a bimetallic confer ence, he said, are still pending, out ivir. Wolcott assured the senate that the committee had no intention of prolong ing its effort beyond the point where reasonable hope of success should ex ist. Mr Wolcott promised to explain fully the, work of the committee in a speech to be delivered after the holi day recess. The president sent the following nom inations to the senate: Justice Joseph McKenna of Califor nia to be associate justice of the su preme court of the United States. Treasury Charles G. Dawes of Illi nois to be comptroller of the currency. Interior John W. Nesbit of Pennsyl vania to. be pension agent at Pittsburg. Court of Private Land Claims Joseph R. Reed of Iowa to be chief justice, William W. Murray of Tennessee, Thomas C. Fuller of North Carolina, Henry C. Sluss of Kansas and Wilbur F. Stone of Colorado to be associate justices. These are reappointments, their terms expiring Dec. 31, 1897. The nomination of Attorney General McKenna" to succeed Justice Field on the supreme bench will not be acted upon by the senate until after the Christmas holidays. The nomination was referred' to the committee on judi ciary in ttre executive session, but Sen ator Hoar,,, chairman of that commit tee, stated that he would not ask the committee to. consider the nomination until after th reconvening of the sen ate in January. A resolution directing the secretary of war to send supplies to American and other sufferers In the Klondike region was passed.. Mr. Pritchard of North Carolina chairman of the civil service investigating committee, delivered brief speech upon the execution of the civil service law as developed by his committee, after which the senate went into executive session ana then ad lourned. , New Internal Revenue Agency.

We know of no better remedy to cure cough or cold than Chamberlain's cough remedy. We have used it quite extensively and it has always given en tire satisfaction. Olagah, Ind Ter Chief. This is the only remedy that is known to be a certain preventive of pneumonia. Among the many thous ands who have used it for colds and la grippe, we have never yet learned of a single case having resulted in pneumo nia. Persons v. ho have weak lungs or have reason to fear an attack of pneu monia, should keep the remedy at hand. The 25 and 50 cent sizes for sale by Apothecaries Hall Co, George M.
