STATE JOURNAL, THURSDAY EVENING. APRIL 19, 1894.
OUR JIEffl NAVY. Heport of House Committee on Xaval A3airs, Tells of Its Present and Future Strength. 31UST BE NO HALT In Building Up Our Battleships Says Mr. Cummin?s. Washisgtox, April 19. The present .and prospective naval strength of the United (States in comparison with that of foreign power is bet forth in the report of the house committee on naval affairs, presented yesterday by Chairman Cummings. The report states the committee has reluctantly concluded not to recommend the con struction of a new battleship, because of the depleted condition of the treas ury. It js urged, however, there must be no halt in building up the navy. 'England proposes," says the report, "to be in seven battle-ships of the first class; six cruisers of the second class and two sloop. Italy, with a depleted treasury, is preparing1 to build three first-claas battle-ships, three cruisers, twelve torpedo boats, aud four transports. Germany, France and Russia are going to even greater lengths to secure an increase of their navies. In view of these facts, it cer tainly would not bo safe for the United states to build no more battle ships. With increasing prosperity the work should go on until the American navy is strong enought to stand all exigencies. The slight increase proposed by the committee will not burden the country with taxation during the coming year and with renewed prosperity, the work can be continued in the future without ever burdening the nation. The total loss of the Kearsarga leaves the Hartford, Admiral Farragut's flagship, the only vessel in the new navy, aside from the frigate Constitu tion, around which historic memories cluster. The committee, in accordance with the wishes of the navy depart ment, have recommended liberal ap priation for her preservation and im provement, believing public sentiment demands it. The committee have put into the bill a clause providing for the natural ization of alien sailors and marines on vessels who have served five consecu tive years and have been granted honorable discharges. In accordance with the suggestion of the secretary of the navy the com mittee recommends he be authorized to use "for the construction of one additional cruiser of the Vesuvius type," the 8450,000 appropriated by the act of March 2, 1300, for the construc tion of three torpedo boats to cost altogether not more than 840,000. By the act of March 3, 1S91, 200,000 was appropriated for building a sub-marine boat. The committee recom mends that the secretary be author ized to use this 8200,000 for the con struction of a torpedo boat. The com mittee further recommends that au thority be given the secretary to transform the United States steamer Vesuvius into a torpedo cruiser, if in his opinion, such transformation will add to the efficiency of the ship for naval purposes." This will give a total of four new torpedo boats, and if the Vesuvius is changed, five. The report summar izes the items of appropriations for the new navy. The total is 25,180, VC6; wh icb is an advance on last year, but a considerable decrease from the estimate of this year. The main item for decrease is 84,000.000 for armor plate, which is $2,500,000 less than the estimate. NICARAGUA CANAL. Doldd Hostility to Soaator Morgan's Bill la th Bshi Developed. Washington, April IS. Xicaraguan canal matters came up for discussion yesterday in the house commerce committee. The-oieeting was called ostensibly to hear an argument by M. 15. Moore of Dubuque, Iowa. He was a member of the executive committee appointed by the Nicaraguan canal conventions at St. Louis and New Or leans in 1892. lie presented to the committee a printed protest against the passage of the senate (Morgan) canal bill, and submitted one in support of the bill prepared by himself, which, he asserted, was no scheme to build the canal by governmental aid for the benefit, of private parties. It was direct and definite in its provisions. It was a commercial company in which the three nations interested are the principal stock-holders and received their chief revenues. The in terest of the United States would be about 90 per cent of the whole, and it would control the canal practically the same as the English government controls the Suez canal, by owning a majority of the stock. Several members expressed them selves very emphatically on the mat ter of the' government partnership with the canal company in the work on the canal, and declared that the United States ought not to take any stock in the concern, but should as sume control in the enterprise out right and finish the work already be gun. From the sentiments expressed by the members of the committee from time to time during the discussion it became evident that there would be a decided hostility to the Morgan sen ate bill should it ever reach the house. TOOK WIDE RANGE. A Great Variety of Subject Discussed la tha House. Washington, April 19. The house devoted the entire day yesterday to debate on consular and diplomatic ap propriation bills. It "touched a wide variety of subjects and at times was brimful of interesting personalities. The Hawaiian policy cf the present administration came in for a good fchare ef attention. The appointment of Van A'xii as minister to Italy pro voked' tk very extended discussion. Ik was held up to ridicule by , the Re publicans, who intimated that it was a reward for his $50,000 contributed to the Democratic campaign fund. The Democrats, in defending the appoint ment, tried to eounter on the Harrison administration by detailing the his tory of thd 8400,000 campaign fund raised by ex-Postmaster General Wanamaker. Later in the; day Mr. Wise took up the authorship of quorura-coeritiiig as a parliamentary anti-filibustering ex pedient and quoted from the record tor-show that the first proposition in this line had been offered Tsy J. Ran dolph Tucker, a Virginia Democrat, in 1S80, when it had been vigorously opposed .by Mr. Eeed. Mr. Walker of Massachusetts met this attack on the ex-speaker's fame by shrieking- out before the house the reeord of the Democratic opposition to. the quorum counting rule in the Fifty-first con gress, fcpeaker . Crisp leading the opposition. CARLISLE 2HLST SHOW CAUSE. The Secretary of the Treasury Jlandam nsed Over Removals From OlBce. Washington, April 19.

Mill and Richard Bell of this city applied to the supreme court of the District of Columbia for a mandumus compelling the secretary to reinstate Eugene A. Addis, over whose case there was some spicy, correspondence between the civil service commission and the secre tary. In his ultimatum to Commissioner Eoosevelt, it will be remembered, Secretary Carlisle held his right to make dismissals for political reasons! and declared if , the view taken by the commissioner was correct, "a. case would be presented for prosecu tion, which is the only remedy pro vided in the law." The secretary has been taken at his wprd. .Judge .Bradley signed an order for the secretary to show cause Tues day, April 24, at 10 a. m., why the mandamus should not be issued, and a marshal served the notice on Secre tary Carlisle.

Thirty-four Flowing Wells Within a Ka '' dins of Five M lies of Xeodeiha. Neod3HA, Kan., April 19. Another cil gusher was developed one-fourth of a mile east of this city. At a depth of 850 feet the most pro ductive strata of oil sand yet found in this vicinity was penetrated, and just six hours after the drill was taken out 500 feet of oil was measured in the well which is eight inches in diameter. Although, the well has not yet been shot, it gushes at intervals of about thirty minutes and literally saturates the surrounding premises with oil. It is estimated that after being shot this will yield 300 barrels per day. This makes thirty-four strong wells within five miles of Neodesha. Governor Harvey's Funeral. Junction City, Kan., April 19.

V The Senate in Executive Session Yesterday, Considered Best Means of Deal ing: With Coxey. CLEVELAND IS SEEN By Coxey Sympathizers Asked to Open the Barracks. WA8HT3fOTOJJ', April J.9. The Coxey movement received its first reeogni tion at the hands of the senate yester day. The question was brought up in executive session, and was under consideration, for an hour and a half,; the senate remaining in session until 6:40 o'clock. No formal action' was taken and the matter was considered very irregularly upon a suggestion that there were several organizations of men approaching Washington with the avowed purpose of forcing a recognition in the way of legislation it behooved congress to decide what it would do in case of the arrival of large numbers of men with the pur pose of Mr. Coxey's followers in view. Senator Harris, speaking for the committee on rules, replied to the suggestion by saying the committee had the question under consideration, and after an examination of the stat utes bearing upon the question of the invasion of the capitol grounds by or ganized bodies of men, had reached the conclusion the laws now on the statute books made ample provision for the protection of the buildings, and argued the committee had taken the necessary steps to see the laws were executed. The impression seemed general that the regularly organized police would be capable of executing the laws during the presence of the army, and that it would not be necessary to make any especial show of armed forces. Four local sympathizers with the Coxey movement called upon the president yesterday to request that the Washington barracks be thrown open for the accommodation of the commonweal army during its stay in the city. KELLY'S ARMY. Teams Have Been Provided to BanI Them Ont of Conncil lilulTs. Omaha, Neb., April 19. Kelly's army camped in Chautauqua grounds last night. There was a decided re vulsion of feeling among the people yesterday. Indignation supplanted in difference, and the citizens of Omaha, Council Bluffs and South Omaha set about vigorously to ameliorate the condition of the unfortunates. An in dignation meeting was called in Coun cil Bluffs and a committee was ap pointed to call on Governor Jackson to remove the militia from the Chautau que grounds. At noon the Chautauqua grounds were abandoned by the militia and at 5 o'clock the picket lines were with drawn. At 8 o'clock the militia was all back at the Union Pacific transfer and the Kellyites were in full posses sion of the Chautauqua grounds. Dur ing the day the camp was visited by thousands of sympathizers. Food, money, clothing, medicine,' bedding, pipes, tobacco and everything needed for the comfort of the army was furn ished in abundance. When night fell Kelly was in possession of upward of 81,000 in cash, and had provisions to last a week, with luxuries to last a month. During the evening meetings were held in the three cities. In Omaha the large hall provided was inade quate, and an overflow meeting was held on Jefferson square. Upward of 8,000 people gathered at this latter meeting and were addressed by the leaders of the army. During the af ternoon 250 Union Pacific employes, loaded with provisions, marched over to the camp. A meeting was held there attended by 3,000 persons. Res olutions indorsing the army and con demning the railroads were adopted. It is the plan now to march the men out to-day. Teams have been provided to haul the army's outfit, and the men hope to make arrangements to get a train before going far. COXET'S ARMY. It Captures Hancock, -!(!., and Fills the Saloons of the Town. Haitcock, Md.( April 19. Coxey's army sailed into barren seas when it reached Hancock yesterday. A run of twenty miles was made between breakfast and sunset, the flotilla drawing up under the Hancock bridge for a late supper. But the supper had to come out of the commissary wag ons. OThe town authorities refused to vote either money or provisions to the army, so that crackers -and cheese were the best they could get out of tlieir own resources. t The Coxey men practically took pos session of Hancock after dark. There being no stipulation as in Cumber land, to hold thena outside of town, they swarmed up from ths wharf and filled the saloons on the main streets. Arid Land BUI Amended.

WAS IGNORANT- OF DANGEK It I To Be Feared Few People Are Better Informed, But Fortunately There Are Some Wide-awake, Intel ligent and Quick To Profit By the MOST ST eat lone of Others. "I naturally shrink from appearing be fore the public, but I realize that I have passed through an experience of a most remarkable nature. Many of my friends have urged me to make it public, but have always declined to do so. I feel, however, that it is a duty which I owe both to the publio and my friends to tell the story. "It is unquestionably' a fact that thou sands of men and women are in the greatert peril and do not for a- moment realize it. What must be thought, there fore, when I state that I was virtually starving for several year3 and yet, blind that I was. did not understand it. To make it more clear, I will describe my condition. The first thing I noticed was a losa of appetite. I thought little of It at first and attributed it to biliousness, but instead of passing away it Increased, and caused me very much annoyance. I then began to notice that I was losing flesh, and also that my liver was very irregular in its action. The slightest ex ertion tired me out completely and my nerves were all unstrung, and 1 bad a bad taste in my mouth, sometimes ac companied with nausea and vomiting. I was also trouDled by not flashes, followed by chills, shortness of breath, palpitation of the heart and a severe aud distressing cough. It can readily be understood that these Bymptoms steadily growing worse made life a burden. Those who read these words may perhaps recognizes laminar but none the less dangerous symptoms. You can see how dangerous they may become by learning how they eventually ruined my health. "It was a long time before I consulted a physician, but I finally did so. He ex amined me and said, 'The trouble with you is that you do not digest your food properly, and one. of your lungs ia af fected. Your system is in such a weak ened condition that your food passes through your stomach without being as similated. You are actualy starving for want of nourishment.' He then ordered me to take a tonic and plain cod liver oil twice a day. "That was my first experience. I tried the cod liver oil, but instead of gaining flesh I lost, and what is worse the greasy oil nauseated me, making me feel still more miserable. At that time I was re duced in weight to less than one hun dred pounds and everybody declared that I was dying of consumption. I was a mere skeleton and could hardly walk two blocks without being utterly ex hausted. .- - "It would fill a whole volume to relate all the suffering I passed through after this. Suffice it to say that I visited a number of prominent physicians, all of whom had the eaoia opinion about my condition, and each prescribed a different remedy. Oue doctor told me that cod liver oil emulsion was good, saying it would have a better effect than plain cod liver oil. I tried the emulsion .but the flycerine in it gave me Intense heart urn, while the fatty oil gave me the most ternabie dyspepsia. Another or dered beef, and another malt , prepara tion. I tried these until the very sight of them .was sickening. , My stomach re belled against them. Then I tried fari naceous foods, preparations of wheat, barley,oats and malt. They only fermen ted in my stomacti, causing acid gases to rise in my throat till my head was ready to burst. I steadily ran down, had fear ful night sweats, and caughed constantly. I suffered so intensely that death would often have been a welcome relief. "It was at this critical state, when hope had almost been abandomed by my fami ly, that I received a call from a very kind friend. He was shocked at my wasted run down condition. After. hear ing my unhappy story he said, 'I think I understand your case and I believe I know of something which will perhaps make a well man of you. In fact, if it will not help you, I know of nothing that will. It is certainly worth a triaL It is a scientific discovery which is creating a freat stir in the highest medical circles, t is a pre-digested food which ia capable of being absorbed by the system directly it is swallowed. The stomach does not have to digest it. It enters at once into the blood and the vital parts of the body, giving nourishment to the flesh and blood. It builds up the system in 'a wonderful manner.' He gave me a pamphlet which I read very carefully and I determined as a last resort to follow his advice. "Hoping against hope, I began the use of the food my friend had recommended. You can imagine with what anxiety I waited to see the result, even as a drown ing man clutches at & etra.v-. At first there was no perceptible cbsk ge in my condition. Then, somehow, I seemed to be gradually losing my disagreeable Btomach troubles. By degrees, one de pressing symptom after another left me, until at last I was able to eat without suffering. Then I began to gain more rapidly. I found that the pre-digested food not only gave my system new fife and vigor, but it toned up the stomach and my entire body in a remarkable way. It enabled other food to digest and it in creased my vitality to an unusual extent. My recovery progressed fo such a degree that in six weeks my weight was greatly increased, I went back to my work a well man, and. I unhesitatingly say that I owe my recovery and present condition wholly to Paskola. the great pre-djgested food which took me from the lowest phy sical depths and restored me to the life and health I now possess. 'My recovery shows that the fears of myself and family that I was suffering from . consumption were unfounded. Since my recovery I have naturally given considerable thought to the subject and have corresponded with many people who have been troubled as I was. From my experience and what I have learned. I firmly believe that half the death thi occur from so-called consumption and other wasting diseases are dB direct'y I to lack of nourishment. Loss of flesh is If You Have Scrofula, Sores, Boils, or v any other skin disease, take u u S ARSAPAR ILL A the Superior Blood-Purifier and Spring Medicine. Cures others, will cure yon a sure sign of disease. No person who' e weight did not decrease ever died of coi sumption. Indigestion and mal-aasius1.-lation of food is the great Arwican dis ease of the present day. 1 Louaands of men, and woman too, are suffering just a Idid and yet they do not know it and c; n not realize it. It is a most insidious, ,i most deceptive trouble. While it h s certain symtoma, they vary with diflcreu people and It is not until a person is brought low by reduced flesh and disease that a full realization of the danger is felt. "I have endeavored to give my experi ence in the hope that others who may be traveling the same dangerous road and yet do not realize it, may be warned In time and restored as I was. I believed that all such people, provided they have not confirmed consumption, can be saved, if they will but take advan tage of the latest and best discove.ry which science has made for their bene fit I believe that medicines will fail to cure such cases, but that a predigested food like Paskola, which can now be se cured of any reputable druggist, will ef fect far better results than drugs. I shall be pleased to answer all inquiries that may be addressed to me upon the subject, although I make the above state ment voluntarily and solely for the good I hope it may be the means of doing."
