People who have used sprays, inhalers, Ealves and washes for catarrh and have - found how useless and Inconvenient they are, will be agreeably surprised at results following the use of a pleasant internal remedy in tablet form; drug gists everywhere admit that Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, which they sell at ."0 cents for full sized treatment in the saf est, most effective and popular of all catarrh remedies. Nearly all cheap couch mixtures and throat lozenges contain opiates; these cheap medicines give a temporary re lief, especially with little children by clestroying rerve sensations; the irrita tion in throat, which causes couching- is temporarily removed, not by removing the cause but by deadening the nerves of feeling- the irritation is not felt al though it is still there and will prompt ly return. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is the best remedy to remove catarrhal secretion, whether in the nose, throat or stomach because they are composed of whole some antiseptics lik Eueolyptol, Guaia-t-ol. Sanguinaria and Hydrastis: when you use these tablets you know what you are putting- into your system and riot taking- chances with cocaine, opiates or similar poisons found in so many ca tarrh cures and cough medicines. Dr.- Kamsrlell in commenting on ca tarrh cures says: "I can heartily rec ommend Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, be cause they contain no cocaine nor other (W: serous drug found in so many ad vertised, catairh cures. I have known of many casts of long standing catarrh of the head and throat completely cumd by the doily use of these tablets for several weks. One case in particular which I could not reach with an inhaler or spray and where the catarrh cause i daily headaches and a notieable loss of hearing was entirely cured by this harmless but effective remedy " Dr. Wainwria-ht says: -i never hesi tate to prescribe Stuart's Catarrh Tab lets for catarrhal headaches and catarr hal deafness because I know theni to be perfectly safe for child or adult and iiave seen many remarkable cures re sulting from their regu'ar daiiv use- be cause thev are advertised and sold in drug stores is no reason why any good physician should not use them because we should seize upon the means of cure wherever found." S'uart's Catarrh Tablets are especial ly valuable for catarrhal colds in child ren because they are pleasant to tl .- taste and may be used freely to break up severe colds and croup at the verj beginning-. All druggists Bell the remedy at fifty cents for full sized package. A little book on cause and cure of ca tarrh mailed free by addressing the F. at. Stuart Co., Marshall, Mich. NEW AR31Y FLAN. Permanent Force of 50,000 Men is Proposed. New Tork, Nov. 20 High officials con nected with the war department, it is announced in a Tribune dispatch from Washington, say that they are not go ing to ask congress for a permanent en listed strength of 100,000 men for the regular army or for an addition to the number of officers now on thearmy lists. It is learned from authoritative sources in the department that a bill is being prepared which will be presented to con gress, providing for a permanent min imum strength of 50,000 men in the reg ular army and at the same time con ferring authority on the president to double this number in case of need to 100,000 men. This is to be done, not by forming new regiments but by adding enlisted men to the existing organized companies without at all increasing the number of commissioned officers. This arrangement would bring the army more in harmony with the modern methods of organization which tend to large com panies and regiments. General Joseph It. Hawley of Con necticut, chairman of the senate com mittee on military affairs, says that as soon as Secretary Root returns from Cuba a bill reorganizing the army on a permanent basis will be prepared and introduced in both houses. Senator Hawley is quoted a3 saying in the course of an interview: "In my opinion an army of not less than 1CO.00O and perhaps more, should be maintained at the present time. In the n-ar future, of course, there may be cause for a reduction. I think a measure might be passed empowering the president to use his discretion to a great extent in determning the exact strength of the army, n&t. of course, to exceed the maximum fixed by congress. Under conditions such as those existing at present, for instance, the president could recruit an army of whatever pro portions he deemed necessary to handle the Filipino insurrection and upon the conclusion of that work he could reduce the number of troops in proportion to existing needs. This. I think, would be a most excellent solution of the whole problem." BERNHARDT. ARRIVES. Accompanied by Coquelin and Large Company. New Tork, Nov. 20. Madame Sarah Bernhardt and M. Constant Coquelin and their large company of actors ar rived here today on L'Aquitaine. The vessel had a rough trip, meeting heavy s as all the way across. Madame Bern hardt, who looked to be in the best of health, said she was glad to revisit this country as she expects to write a good deal of America in her memoirs, which she is now preparing. The actress denied that Rostand was insane and asserted the stories to that effect had been cir culated by the author's enemies. CLOSELY GUARDED. Great Secrecy Concerning the Nicara guan Canal Report. New Tork, Xov. 20. It was reported In "Washington, says a HeralJ special, that burglars who were aftf-r the forthcoming report of the Walker Isthmian canal com mision, had entered the Corian building-, in which the commission has its offices, and had broken open the desk of Lieu tenant Commander Staunton, secretary of the commission. I-iL-utenaiit Commander Staunton said last night that when he tried to open his dsk a day or two ago he discovered that the lock was broken. His impression was that it was the work of burglars, who for s'-rr.e purpose wt-re peeking" to get advance information about the conclusion of the report. He sent for a locksmith, who per suaded him that the desk had not been broken open, but that the lock had be come disarranged in the course of usage. The incident created great excitement among the members of the commission. Th report of the c - mmipsion is being very closely safeguarded, and, it is said, some of the commissioners are not yet acquainted with what the report will con tain. The best Information obtainable at "Wahine-ton is that the commission cer tainly by a vote of five to four, and pos sibly by six to three will recommend the Nieaiuruau route. This is based upon several inferences as well as upon state ments from the commissioners them selves. It is said that President McKinley has received suff UMnt information about the report for use in his message. The mes sage, if in line with the rumor, will ad vocate the adoption of the Nicaragua route, the ratification of the Hay-Paunce-fte treaty: the construction of a canal wlrhout fortifications, and the adoption of Tolls discriminating in favor of the United States, Csta Rica and Nicaragua only so far as coastwise vessels are concerned and leaving the canal open to all the ship ping of the world. Final estimates of the coFt of a Nica raguan canal have nut yet been complet ed. The engineers are still working on the figures. Approximate figures of the cost of the Nicaragua ti canal are believed to be about $'!5J J The commission will resume its session in Washington on Thursday and it is ex-Pfctr-d to remain at work throughout the COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS. The concert by Innes' band at the Craw ford Friday night is under the auspices of Marshall's band and the Topeka organ ization will receive a per cent of the gross receipts. MLss Frances Boyden, who will be heard here during the coming Innes engage ment, is said to be a sourano of com manding range and power. Miss Boyden is an -American girl whom Bandmaster Innes engaged for his present tour after hearing her sing in concert at the Roval Albert Hall. London. England. Her de but was made two years ago a.t Brussels, where she is said to have created an im mediate success. Miss Boyden is particu larly well known in England, where she is constantly engaged at the bir musical festivals, which form so conspicuous a feature of English musical life. Miss H. 'Vtl. n is a l.yrie soprano of great purity of tone and her principal success having heen made as Mnreuerite in "Faust" and Klsa in --Lohengrin." It is for this Tea s'. n that Bandmaster Innes has announced this delightful singer for the jewel song from "Faust." and the well known "Elsa'a I. ream." Bandmaster Innes brine with him in addition to Miss Frances Boyden his complete band of nftvfive players. Kryl the wonderful cornetist; Albert!, the well-known baritone: Veron. a- basso of unusual attainments: SCerni and Xanten. two well-known tenors: the celebrated sopran-i. Mrr.e. Xoldi. and other vocalists of similar authority, who will be heard in scenes from either '-Fa-ust" or "Trova tore." A novelty is promised in the way of a scenic production of the Anvil chorus, which will be given with electrical effects, lowered lights and a corps of costumed anvil beaters. Hulas for Luzon. Seattle. Wn., Nov. 20. A train of 14 cars of army mules destined for ship ment to the Philippines is expected here by Quartermaster Ruhlin during the rext two days. Considerable anxiety is felt for their arrival in good condition owing to the reports of very cold weath er in Montana and Idaho. The animals win be rested and fed on arrival at Spo kane and will probably reach here Wed nesday night. Bjornson Goes to Paris. Christlania, Nov. 20. The poet Bjorn son has recovered from his severe ill ness and has started for Paris, where he will make a. Ions stay. ENGLAND INPATIENT. Grows Weary Over Belay of Settling Chinese Question. New- York, Nov. 20. There is a grow ing feeling of impatience in London over the delay in effecting a settlement of the Chinese question, says a Tribune cablegram. The English press frankly confesses that it weary hearing about punitive expeditions to one quarter or another, and that it considers it hardly w-orth while to keep all China in a state of turmoil, preventing thereby the re storation of normal trade relations in order to pdnish a few criminals who can not be caught while the court remains in exile. English opinion will not be fully expressed until the cues are provided by the foreign office but it is fairly safe to assume that it supports the American contention that the most urgent require ment of the situation is the establish ment at Pekin of a government w ith the essential elements of stability and au thority. Since there can be no substi tute for the empress rule, her return to the capital seems a foregone conclusion. The punishment of the princes, especial ly Tuan, is the chief obstacle to a set tlement. The latest dispatches indicate that the European powers are gradually coming to a decision on the prelim inaries of peace on which general ne gotiations may be opened. The trend of events indicate that the EuroDean pow ers are slowly approaching the Ameri can position on the whole matter. A NERVY LAWYER. Chicago Attorney Awes a Mob and Saves a Justice. Chicago, Nov. 20. "Back! Stand back. The first one who comes over that rail ing is a dead man." With these words and with a revolver in his hand to make them good, Attor ney John Trainer, assisted by Constable Henry DeToung. saved Justice Peter De Young from being mobbed in his own court room in South Holland, in Thorn ton township. The demonstration against the magis trate was brought about as a result of the Justice refusing to deal leniently with Jacob Eriesma, who. had been ar rested on a charge of conducting a '"blind pig." When the rush -was made toward the magistrate. Attorney Trainer and Con stable DeToung Jumped to the Justice's side and drew their revolvers. They commanded the crowd to fall back but their orders were only partly obeyed. Then the attorney for the defense asked for a change of venue and it was grant ed and the magistrate signed the papers, while his two friends stood, over hirn with their revolvers. SCHOOL CHILDREN AID. New York Pupils Send $15,000 to Galveston. New York, Nov. 20. Substantial help will be given to the public schools at Galveston. Texas, by the teachers and pupils of the public schools of this city. The hurricane which desolated Galveston destroyed the schools there. President Miles M. O'Brien, of the local board of education, issued a circular ad dressed to the local principals and teach ers requesting them to take up a sub scription, and this has been done. The officials of the school board for" Man hattan and The I.tronx have been busily engaged in counting the money turned in. It is estimated that the amounts raised in the two boroughs will not be less than Jlo.OOO. President O'Brien says that while sub scriptions are not ordinarily permitted in the schools, he deemed this, cause to be so worthy that he violated the rule in this instance. GAMBLERS ON TRIAL. Members of Noted German Club Vio late the Law. Berlin, Nov. 20. The second trial of the defendants in the charges of gam bling at the club Der Harmosen, after the reichsgericht had annulled the ac quitting sentence, began today. One of the defendants, Herr Von Kroecher. sort of General Von Kroecher, commander of an army corps and an intimate adviser of Emperor William, fled to the south, and the court orderl his arrest wher ever he should be found. The principal culprit, "Gentleman" Wolff, this time was present. NEW OREGON COAL ROAD. Short Line to Nehalem Coal Fields Projected. Portland, Ore.. Nov. 20. The Ojlego nian prints the following: The project for a railroad from Port land to the Nehalem coal fields is tak ing shape. It is supposed that influences favorable to the Great Northern are be hind the present Nehalem project. It ia said that something definite regarding the building of the line will be given out in a few days. It is expected to bring the Nehalem coal and timber and agri cultural products of Tillamook county to Portland direct. This route makes the distance from Portland to Nehalem Bay less than 78 miles. It contemplates going out a few miles on one of two tracks already built on the Southern Pacific to Hillsboro, or on the Northern Pacific to a point near Holbrcok. The Hillsboro route, in connection with the Southern Pacific, would leave only 58 miles of new track to build to reach Nehalem Bay; from the Northern Pacific the mileage would be a little more than 73 milea.

With a crash that resounded through the length and breadth of the White House, the heav ily framed life-size painting of Abraham Lincoln fell from its place on the wall of the famous east room this afternoon. The noise was so great that it was heard distinctly by the president and Mrs. McKinley in the residential portion of the mansion, and they sent a mes senger in haste to learn the cause. The portrait of the martyred president was painted especially for the White House, and is one of four that hang in the east room, the others being those of George and Martha Washington and Thomas Jefferson. It was suspended from a cornice over one of the windows, and this cornice had given way. The gilt frame of the pic ture was broken to atoms, but, fortun ately, so far as a cursory examination has shown, the painting itself, with the exception of a few slight scratches, es caped injury. A minute search of the canvas will be made, however, as the portrait is said to be the best extant of President Lin coln, and Mr. McKinley has given orders that any damage to it be Immediately repaired. What caused the accident is not known with certainty, but as workmen have recently been rebuilding a staircase in the east wing it is supposed the constant hammering loosened the cornice. The incident is important at this time in asmuch as it will likely result in direct ing the attention of the congress that is to soon assemble to the dilapidated state of the White House. STATE CONVENTION" V.M.C.A. Kansas Associations Meet This 'Week in Wichita. The nineteenth annual convention of the Young Men's Christian associations of Kansas will open at Wichita Thurs day evening and close on Sunday night.

With the hard work of the recent campaign behind him, his brain and nerve force recuperated. Senator Hanna is commencing to look for ward to new conquests. It has been a five years' campaign with him. th first skir mish being fought when Piatt and Quay opposed the indorsement of Major Mc Kinley for the presidential 'nomination. To the ordinary person it would seem that with vietorv after victory to his credit, Senator Hanna would have nothing left to Hght for. That he has. however, is shown in his declaration that he in tends to take more interest in congres sional affairs this year than in any of the previous sessions. To facilitate his work in. this direction he will remain in Wash ington from the first dav of December until congress adjourns. He has renewed his lease of the majudon formerly occu pied bv Vice President Hobart. known as the Cameron property. The Hannas will entertain rovallv. "One of the first accomplishments of the new congress," said Senator Hanna to day, "will have a strong bearing on the future of the American army. This will probably place the new army on a perma nent basis. At the present time our army exists under a tenure of special legisla tion. Its lease on life expires next July, so that something will have to be done bv our next congress. Various plans have been suggested. The more valuable of tha suggestions have been or will be gathered into what is known as the army bill. This will be presented to congress early in the session. The bill will, firnt of all. provide a p: tn whereby the army will be placed on a permanent footing. It will call for 65,000 or TO.OoO men. The bill will come up early, because action on it is imperative. It is acknowledged that we must have a standing army of some siae if we are to maintain our position in our new pos sessions. Without immediate action on the subject we w-ould find ourselves next July without a corporal's guard in the Philippines. A majority of the enlistments expire July 1, but many of the boys will be coming home in February and March. We wili have to have things in shape so that some one will be on hand to take their places." THE BURNING AT LIH0N. To Be Called to the President's Atten tion by Ministers. Chicago, Nov. 20. The burning of the negro Porter at the stake by the citizens of Limon, Col., will be brought to the attention of President McKinley by the Methodist ministers of Chicago. At a meeting in the First Methodist church they passed a resolution censuring the governor of Colorado, the sheriff and the citizens of Limon who composed the mob and resolved to request the presi dent to call attention in his next mes sage to the 2,000 persons put to death by mobs in the last ten years and urge him to recommend to congress suitable legislation that shall secure of persons accused of crime a fair trial and hold criminally liable all persons constituting mobs to torture, murder and burn. TO STOP CLASS RUSHES. University of Chicago Thinks the Fun" Too BrutaL Chicago, Nov. 20. Alarmed by the death of a student at the Massachus etts School of Technology last week while engaged in a class rush, the facul ty of the University of Chicago warneil the students of that institution that no class rushes would be permitted here after at the university and intimated that those found participating in an outbreak of that kind would be expelled. This action was the result of a reso lution passed by the university council condemning rushes and declaring that they should be stopped. The resolution was read to the junior college students, consisting of the two great rival classes, the freshmen and the sophomores, at chapel by Dean George E. Vincent. The action of the faculty at this time is due to the fact that a rush was being planned in a quiet way, by the students for next Friday night. Prince George Writes a Drams, Berlin, Nov. 20.

The Innes band, which comes to the Crawford theater Friday evening, is booked solid for eighteen months ahead. Robert E. Johnston, who Is general man ager of the Innes band, was here arrang ing for the Topeka concert. Johnston is one of the shrewdest im presarios In the country. He brought to the United States and managed every noted artist of recent years, except Fad erewski. The array of artists Mr. J-hn-ston introduced in America, is formi' 0 '1. Including, among others. Trebelll, Msin, Henri Marteau, Eugene Ysaye. Rivarde, Plancon and Sauc-r. With Innes' band are ten artists giving- scenes from grand operas and this combination of high- 5rade musical talent is now en tour. Mr. ohnston has booked four hundred con certs in two hundred days. On the pres ent tour they make two towns a day, playing a matinee in one place and a night concert in another every day. The organiaation travels in its own special train from place to place. The itinerary they are now embarked upon under John ston's bookings will take them all over the United States: Into Cuba. Mexico, and Canada: across the Atlantic to Scotland and. back. In an interview, Mr. Johnston detailed to a State Journal reporter some very in teresting points about the management of this great amusement enterprise. "Innes' band travels In its own special train, even including the engine. It is not so difficult to jump from one town to another. We ring up for our matinees promptly at 2 o'clock, ring down at 6 in the afternoon and promptly at S in the evening at our next stop. It isn't oftn we have a very long jump. Cine of the biggest this trip is from Fayetteville, Ark., to Springfield. Mo. The 'Frisco fixed us up a schedule of IZO miles in V10 minutes, and we rung up promptly in Springfield at 8 p. m. "A man asked me whether Innes' musi cians wore their uniform on the staare only. He looked --"urprised when I tjld him they were never out of them from the time they left New York. Hut thev live at the best hotels, just the same-. Every one of the rank and file Is allowed $15 a week for hotel accommodations. "Speaking of expenses, not a mm In our band is receiving less than r:2.50 a week. Our principals, our artists that Is. receive as high as J4 v a week. We carry ten artists, in two groups. One group Is on the program In the afternoon, w h'le the others take the operatic and special numbers in the evening concerts. The weekly expenses of the Innes' band en tour is fully $6,000. "This fall tour began October 27th in the Academy of Music. Philadelphia. We have gone through the south and are coming up now to go as far west as Kearney, Neb. Then we go east and close on De cember 17 at Buffalo for the holidays. Our winter tour begins on-January 12. Going down the east coast into Florida we take a special steamer, chartered from the Plant line for Cuba. This is an absolute experiment in taking an amusement of this magnitude into Cuba. Concerts are played in Havana, January 27, followed by engagements in Cienfuegos and Ma tanzas. Back to Mobile, through Texas and the southwest. Innes plays into San Diego. Mexico, up the Pacific coast, through Los Angeles. San Francisco. Portland, to Victoria, and Vancouver. B. C. Back into the States again concerts are given all the way from Olvmpia, through Butte, Helena. Salt Lake City. Denver, Omaha. St. Paul, along the "Soo" route, closing the winter tour again at Buffalo. "On the 23rd of April we sail from New York for Liverpool and open the Oiasstow International exposition. at Glasgow. Scotland, on May 4th. On June 2oth we sail from Liverpool, arriving in New York on July 2, and open our- ten weeks' sum mer engagement on the night of the 3rd of July. Then we play a four weeks' en gagement at the St. Louis exposition, be ginning on September 8th, and go to the Pan-American exposition on October 13, to close it. When the Pan-American show is at the zenith of Its closing days. Innes' band will be the big music card. Closing there on November 2. we begin our regu lar tours again for the season of PJ01-02." Innes Is a favorite in this section of tha country, through his splendid achieve ments at the Omaha exposition. He Is Doonea lor several return uates In that city this winter In the Ak-Sar-Ben audi torium. The band arrives in Topeka Fri day afternoon for its concert in the Craw, ford that evening, after playing a matine? at Emporia Saturday afternoon a concert is given under the Elks' auspices at Law. rence. Saturday night they are In Leav. enworth and Sunday give two concerts In Kansas City. The musical people of Topeka are deeply interested in the com ing concert, as the greatest musical event of the season. A BOLD THIEF. Saws Hole Through Show Window Floor and Gets Diamonds. Erie, Pa., Nov. 20 While the store was full of customers, hundreds of people passing the window and a watchmaker working not six feet away from him, a daring thief stole a tray of diamonds valued at $2,500 from S. Loeb, a fashion able jeweler, and had been gone an hour before the robbery was discovered. The proprietor of the store and the police are astounded at the novel and daring tactics of the robber. He had secured entrance to the cellar and sawed his way through the floor into the box which forms the floor of the display win dow. Then he sawed through the thin boards until he had a hole six inches wide and a foot long, the sawdust being hidden by the tissue paper on which tha jewels were displayed. This hole gave him access to the tray of diamonds, which he tipped on edge, permitting the glittering shower of Jewels to slide down Into the window box. The tray was replaced over the hole, and it was not until a clerk went to display the gems to a customer that the theft was discovered. There is scant hope of apprehending the robber, as it is known he departed from the basement of the store fully an hour before the proprietor discovered hia loss. TO CROSS THE OCEAN. Inventor Holland Planning to Send His Queer Craft to Europe. New York, Nov. 20. John P. Holland, the inventor of the submarine boat, an nounces that he has planned a number of sea voyages for his boats now under course cf construction. These Include a trip to Cuba and another one to Euro ne. As a precautionary measure, a tender will accompany the boats. The tender will carry extra men and duplicate parts of the machinery, in case any of the crew are incapacitated or the submarine boats meet with accident.
