One Man Killed and Another Badly
Hurt In Chicago
Chicago, March 24. The R?cord says:
Two men who are Supposed to have
been assaulted by strikers yesterday
were taken to the county hospital in a
6erloua condition. One of tliem died
Custav Smith. 38 years old.
August Hasterok, 35 years old, con
cussion of the brain; serious.
Mystery surrounds the manner ' In
which Smith received his injuries. He
was picked up at Madison and Jefferson
streets in the afternoon In an Insensible
condition by the police. He was found
lying on the street car tracks. No one
tiad seen him fail and it was thought
that probably he had been struck by a
rable train. This theory was abandoned
after a canvass of the neighborhood and
inquiry of the railway employes.
Smith's skull was badly fractured. His
nose was broken and his lips cut and
l.leeding. The hospital physician said
the injury to the head had not been
caused by a. fall. In his opinion It had
been inflicted by a heavy blow from a
Police Inspector Shea detailed several
detectives on the case.
Hasterok's manner of receiving his in
jury is also shrouded in mystery. He
-was picked up at Noble and Cornell
streets in an unconscious condition by
the police. At the county hospital it
was said that the man was suffering
from concussion of the brain. Hasterck
was unconscious at a late hour last
night and his condition was said to be
serious. He is an iron worker.
The police claim to have witnesses
who will testify at the Inquest over the
body of Smith that the latter was
knocked down by a cable train, thus
receiving the injuries from which he
died. They will also aver that Hasterok
was not attacked by strikers but was
injured by falling against a curb stone.
Is'o witness to this version of the story
has yet been found, but the police de
clare that had strikers set upon the man
It could not have failed to attract at

Scheme to Combine Sugar Refineries
Not Brought About.
New York, March 24. The Herald
publishes the following:
It was disclosed yesterday (Friday)
that the recent stories of an "impend
ing settlement of the sugar trade war"
were based upon an attempt to bring
Rbout a combination of the several in
dependent refiners. With the disclosure
comes the announcement that all negotiations'-
James R. Post, of B. H. Howell &
Son, the agents of the National and
Mollinhauer refineries, was the active
man in the effort to combine the re
finers. In speaking of the matter, he
said that at no time were the negotia

People hesitate at the statement that
the famous food Grape-Nuts yields as
much nourishment from one pound as
can be absorbed by the system from ten
pounds of meat, bread, wheat or oats.
Ten pounds of meat might contain more
nourishment than one pound of Grape
Xuts, but not in shape that the system
will absorb as large proportion of, as
, the body can make up from one pound
This food contains the selected parts
of wheat and barley which are prepar
ed and by natural means predigested,
transformed into grape sugar, ready for
immediate assimilation. People in all
parts of the country can testify to the

'"They were confined," said Mr. Post,
"to the independent refiners, because I

independent refineries could protect
themselves better by working together
than by acting separately. All nego

concerned, and I see no settlement in
sight, at least not for this year."

FACTS ! !
Nuts food. I can truly recommend it to
thin people." He had been eating meat,
bread, etc., right along, but there was
no ten pounds of added flesh until
Grape-Nuts food was used.
One curious feature regarding true
health food is that its use will reduce
the weight of a corpulent person with
unhealthy flesh, and will addedto the
weight of a thin person not properly
nourished. There is abundance of evi
dence to prove this.
Grape-Nuts balance the body In a
condition of true health. Scientific se
lections of food elements makes Grape
Nuts good and valuable. The food's de
licious flavor and powerful nourishing
properties have made friends- that in
turn have made Grape-Nuts famous.

FIGHTING IN SAMOA.
Natives Are Again "Warring Among
Chicago, March 24. A special to the
Chronicle from Victoria, B. C., says:
The warring native factions in Samoa
have apparently not forgotten their dif

last advices brought by the WTarrimoo
left the island that there would be an
other outbreak of hostilities.. The
Malietoa people are paying their taxes
into the government treasury at Apia,
while the Mataafa followers demand
that payment shall be made to their
government by Leulemoega. Those who
declined to comply with this demand
were driven out of their villages and
took refuge in Apia. To the German
authorities the Mataafa people said
they simply wished to collect taxes and
send them in a lump sum to Apia. Some
of the followers of Mataafa who went
to the village of Leone were attacked by
the natives and badly wounded. The
reason for the attack was that the vil
lage had been given to understand that
the Mataafa people proposed to enslave

ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., 100 WILLIAM ST., NEW
POLITICS AND PORTO RICO.
From the Indianapolis News.
It is virtually admitted that the sen
ate will devote its energy to devising
some scheme for uniting the Republi
can party on the Porto Rican tariff
question. One proposition is that there
should be no "hasty" action, but that
the matter be held open long enough to
allow public discontent to wear itself
out, in the hope that a "safe" adjust
ment may be made. In other words, th,
interests of a starving people are to be
sacrificed to the necessity for party
We would remind the senators that
the people, in both parties, are of the
opinion that there has been too much
politics in this business already. What
they want is a decision that will benefit
the helpless people of Porto Rico, and
they want it promptly made. To them
it seems monstrous that any political
exigency should be allowed to stand in
the way of a wise and speedy settle
ment of the question. They see no rea
son for a protracted debate. We, in this
country, have sacrificed much to the
demands of political parties much
more than we ever ought to have done.
Tariffs have been constructed for the
purpose of strengthening the party that
made them with the interests to be
benefited by them. Financial measures
have been enacted to appease the de
mands of certain classes.
And now it is proposed to ask the
people of Porto Rico to wait until the
Republican leaders can find some way
out, of the present tangle which they
can travel safely. We do not believe
that the people will patiently submit to
the policy of delay. The senate should
act promptly. There ought to be free
trade between the United States and
Porto Rico. And the Republicans will
suffer less politically from a complete
backdown than they will from the tri
fling policy that has been suggested.
And even a Republican victory next
November is less important than the
adoption of a just policy toward the
Porto Ricans. ,
