TOPEKA STATE JOURKAI SATURDAY ETENING," DECEMBER 8, 1900.
"PI 'I Jl.iLV. -L... Men who go out fishing in an open boat hi the midst of a blinding storm and enjoy it, must be stroosr and healthy and are pretty sure to live to a ripe old age. Un fortunately, the rash and hurry of modern business life will not permit the average man to take frequent outdoor exercise. In lien of a life spent partly in the woods and on the water, a man must find some kind of medicine to tone up and invigorate bim and incite the vital organs of his body to the faithful performance of their normal functions. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the only thoroughly effective medicine for this purpose. Its principal action is upon the organs that feed the blood, the stomach, the large intestines and the liver. It facilitates the now of the di gestive juices in the stomach and the production of he.ilthy chyle in large quan tities in the large intestines. It invigorates the liver and purifies and enriches the blood. When the blood is rich and pure the old, inert tissues throughout the body are torn down and replaced by new and healthy fiesh tissues and nerve nber3. If a man's blood is filled with the rich, pure elements of health, he can get along with a scanty amount of exercise. Disease germs can gain no foothold in his system. '"I had catarrh for several year and then the grip and also had a hemorrhage from the Fungs," writes Mr. T. J. F. Brown, of Sands, Watauga Co., N. C. " I had the best medical attention, but it could bring only partial relief. I had more hemorrhages. I took twenty-live or thirty bottles cf medicines, but continued to have srelis of b'eoiing I commenced taking Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and Dr. gaze s Catarrh Remedy. I used eiht bottles and have been able ta do any kind of labor for more than twelve months. 1 owe my life to Dr. Pierce's medicines." GROUT BILL PASSES. Raises Tax on Oleomargarine Colored as Butter. Washington, "Dec. S The house passed the Orout oleomargarine bill by a vote f 196 to S2. The substitute offered by the minority of the committee on agri culture, which imposed additional re strictions on the sale of oleomargarine to prevent its fraudulent sale as butter and increased penalties for violation, was defeated by a vote of 113 to 1.8. The bii! as passed makes all articles known as oleomargarine, butterine, ira- i cation butter or imitation cheese trans jmrted into any state or territory for consumption or sale subject to the police rower of such state or territory, but prevents any state or territory from for bidding the transportation or sale of such product when produced or sold free from coloration in imitation of but ter. The bill Increases the tax on oleo margarine colored in imitation of butter from two to ten cents per pound and decreases the tax on oleomargarine un colored from two cents to a. quarter of a cent per pound. A long and interesting debate preceded the vote, in the course of which those who favored the Grout bill claimed the additional tax on colored oleomargarine was the only effective remedy for pre venting fraud upon the public, while those who opposed it contended that fraud would be prevented by the sub stitute and that the real purpose of the irout bill was to destroy the oleomar garine industry. Mr. Waisworth, on behalf of the mi nority of the committee, offered the sub stitute prepared by the minority. The substitute was defeated. 113 to ITS. Th bill was then passed. to 92.

Uncertainty and 3iany Humors in Circulation. COMPLICATE SITUATION Sympathetic Strike Regarded as Pending on Santa Fe, Tice President liarr Issues Cir cular to Operators. Uneasiness is manifest along the -whole Santa Fe system as a result of the strike of telegraphers on the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe. It is the natural Inference that operators will be called out on oth er parts of the system to help the strik ers win. Trouble is looked for on the A. T. & S. F. proper as is evidenced by General Manager Mudge's order Friday, issued to heads of departments to suspend all work not absolutely necessary to the actual running cf trains in case of a strike. Telegraphers are expected to go out at any moment. A rumor is current that the men are prepared to strike in sympathy if the strike on the? Gulf line is not settled within 24 hours. The situation is the same on the Santa Fe bines west of Al buquerque. General Manager Nevin of the Santa Fe-Pacific in an interview, said: 'A contract was entered into and exe cuted between the operators on the San ta Fe-Pacific, Southern California and San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley roads within the past two weeks, is only to be cancelled on 30 days' notice. It can not be violated by the telegraphers ex cept at the sacrifice of their' integrity. The one cause that could be assigned for a strike on these lines would be one of. sympathy for the Guif, Colorado and Santa Fe telegraph operators." As time passed and it became evident that early expectations of settling the Guif strike within eight or ten hours were not realized, a rumor came out that the operators on the A. T. & S. F. proper would go out Friday noon. This hour passed without the fulfillment of the rumor and General Manager Mudge's order was issued. Saturday noon was then named in the current reports as the time set for the operators to strike. Prior to Mr. Mudge's order a 14 page pamphlet was sent to all agents and operators on the Santa Fe system, giving in detail the proceedings and cor respondence between the company offi cials and the Gulf operators. It was issued from the third vice president's office under date of Wednesday, Decem ber 5. The pamphlet gives all the telegrams that passed between the representatives of the company. Tp to December 1 the attitude of both was to consent to ar bitration. The telegraphers had made some accusations of delay and opposi tion against their interests by minor officials. The company was offering prevalent Texas road wages and rules and refrula tions the same as on other Santa Fe lines. Just before the strike was ordered, with President Dolphin of the O. R. T., in Galveston, the following telegrams were exchanged: Galveston, December A, 1900. J. M. Barr, Chicago: After waiting five months and., re peated exhaustive conferences with yourself and general manager in Chi cago, and again with general manager here, regarding schedule submitted by Gulf men, they are now offered a schedule by you which contemplates abolishing old schedule altogether, re specting fifteen positions, a considerable reduction in former wages at about thirty-three other stations, and peremp tory refusal to consider important rules submitted by committee. The commit tee have now apparently exhausted all other ordinary means to adjust their grievances on a mutually satisfactory basis, and we earnestly request that you agree to submit ail existing differences for matters in dispute to the arbitration of wholly disinterested and competent persons, to be chosen and to act imme diately. M. M. DOLPHIN. Galveston, December 5, 1900. J. M. Barr, Chicago: Dolphin has misrepresented the facts to you. On the basis of adding average of five years' ticket commissions to present salaries, advances have been made at all stations with the exception of seven. At these seven where reduc tions were made the committee in go ing over the schedule accepted three of them. Total advance in salaries of a-gnts who also do telegraphing is $115.47, and total decrease is S21.35, making net increase SS4.12. There were only two reductions proposed in salaries of operators alone, which was owing al together to changed conditions of busi ness at these points. Decrease in these two aggregated ten dollars. The total increase proposed in salaries of oper ators alone was $W5. making net in crease $J6. In so far as eliminating fifteen stations from the scheduie is con cerned, I stated to the committee that we would not treat with them for wages at stations where the agents do no telegraphing, but notwithstanding this fact there are only six stations n the road heretofore included in the schedule where we have failed to treat with them, and the salaries at these- six stations will certainly not be reduced. Tr. Dolphin neglected to state to you that we had added to the schedule at least three stations that have never heretofore been included in it. The sal aries propose! are higher than those commonly paid by other roads in the state. ' Ij. J. POLK. Chicago, December 5, 1900. M. M. Dolphin. Galveston, Texas. Tour telegram fourth received. The statements contained therein are not supported by action taken by Colonel Polk, with whom I have communicated. We have desired to settle the demands made by Guif operators on an equitable basis, and with this purpose in view made vou proposition contained in my telegram November 19 to arbitrate wage rates in case of disagreement. We de cline to arbitrate rules and regulations governing the employment of operators, because those offered Gulf operators by us are the same as were accepted by vou for operators west of Albuquerque on November 13, last, after proposition to arbitrate same in case of disagree ment had been made by us and accepted bv you. This is evidence of fairness of such rules so far as operators are con cerre,j. If you are unwilling to settle demands cf operators on- basis offered bv us, we have no further proportion to make you with respect thereto," J. M. BARR. SANTA TE TO AI.BtraTTEE.aT7E New Line Projected Having Friendly Relations to Rock Island. Santa Fe, ST. M., Dec. 8.

A charter was presented here today providing for the long talked of extension of the Rock Is land railway from Liberal, Kan., to White Oaks, N. M. In connection with the charter the announcement was made by the Rock Island people that the White Oaks road would be purchased bv the company, giving the Rock Island a line to EI Paso. This means a Pacific coast outlet, as the Rock Island will perfect a traffic arrangement with the Southern Pacific. Count on a Santa Fe Extension. Manchester, Kan., Dec. S. It Is cur rent rumor in Santa Fe circles that the Barnard branch which runs west from here to Barnard will soon be extended to Osborn, giving a direct southern and eastern outlet for a large section of country now served, though at a dis tance, by the Missouri Pacific. It would reach large stock centers and add to the branch's business greatly. Paris Exposition Diploma. A diploma of honorable mention bas been granted the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway for an exhibit of scenic photographs in the social econ (Oray section of the international exposi tion at Paris. The views were care fully selected and give a good idea of the magnificent scenery in Colorado, New Mexico and California along the Santa Fe Route scenery surpassing anything the Old World can boast of. Ignored Passengers Sue. Because a train on the Katy would not stop at a flag station called Love lace, near Hillsboro, Texas, E. G. Hen son and J. E. Phillips have each sued the company for $200 damages. They were told that if they would flag the train with a lantern it would stop but it did not and they were caused to be exposed to the cold for the greater part of the night, hence the suit. PROM NEWTON. Charley Thomas returned from Dodge City, reports his father much better, though he is still too weak to resume his position with the Santa Fe.

In thirty days she would have lived in three centuries. She was born in Ireland and came to this country sixty years ago. Shortly after Queen Victoria was crowned she presented Mrs. Stewart's husband, who was a sailor, with a medal for saving lives. BABY LAUGH It belongs to health, for a baby, to eat and sleep, to laugh and grow fat. But fat comes first; don't ask a scrawny baby to laugh; why, even his smile is pitiful! Fat comes first. The way to be fat is the way to be healthy. Scott's emul sion of cod-liver oil is the prop er food, if he needs it; but only a little at first. We'll send fori a little to try if yon like.

"As Soon as I Find the Children Have the Least Cold I Give Them Pe runa. u Few Doses Them." llelps One of the greatest foes with which every family has to contend is our changeable climate. To protect the fam ily from colds and coughs is always a serious problem, and often impossible. Sooner or later it is the inevitable fate of every one to catch cold. Care in avoiding exposure and the use of proper clothing will protect from the frequen cy and perhaps the severity of colds, but with the greatest of precautions they will come. This is a settled fact of hu man experience. Especially is this true during tha stormy and unsettled weather of early winter. Everybody must expect to be caught somewhere or somehow. Perhaps it will be wet feet, or cold draught, or damp clothes, or may be too close confinement in toot rooms and then going out into the cold carelessly, or it may be one of a thousand other littla mishaps, but no one is shrewd enough to always avoid the inevitable catching cold. Sometimes colds come like an epi demic; everybody seems to have one at once. The very air about us is poison to the head, throat and lungs. There is no fact of medical science better known than that Peruna cures catarrh wherever located. Thousands of families in all parts of the United States are protected each winter by Peruna. Once in the family Peruna always stays. No home can spare Peruna after the draft a civil service law to apply to state institutions.

Business Conservative With Iron and Shoe Market Quiet. New Tork, Dec. 8 R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: Business is progressing along con servative lines, ft is without excite ment and without great speculative ac tivity, but with a confident undertone which is to be explained largely by the fact that leading concerns in most of the great industries have orders booked to employ their machinery at nearly full capacity during months when curtail ment was usual. Is'o-net reduction in working force has appeared in the last fortnight and a readjustment of wage schedules In some branches of the steel trade is effected without trouble. Prices of commodities are generally steady and holiday trade 13 brisk at all points. Fhe south is particularly cheerful with cot ton firm and the rice crop coming in at very full prices. There is no cause for alarm in the small volume of new business at irm and steel centers. With the first sign of higher prices there came forward such a tiood of contracts that mills and furnaces booked orders sufficient to keep the full force employed for months. Hence there has come a more quiet con dition, with less bidding for products MRS. PESr-lEL HAPPY OOOO 00000-0X0C first trial of It. A splendid example of this fact is found in the beautiful home of Mrs. Paul Peschel. of 14 Quitman street. Newark, N. J. Read her letter. Newark, N. X, June 17, 1900. Dr. S. B. Hartman: Dear Sir "Mv three children were sick and my husband had an attack of la grippe. I jrave the children Peruna, and now thev look as if thev hadn't been sick at all. I also gave it to m v husband until he was good and well. 1 do not know how I could have tood taking care of them and being- up night and day, had it not been for Peruna. "Last winter was the first winter in sixteen years that I did not have a cou?h. It is Impossible to explain ray thanks in words. I never looked as we'l as I do now. Peruna is our family medicine and always will be. I do my own house work and sewing, and get along lovelv, now that I am so strong and well, thanks to Peruna and your good advice. l cannot help but praise Peruna. 1 am never without it. and as soon as 1 find the children have the least cold I give them Peruna. A few doses helps them, and I hope that everv one who reads my testimony will try Peruna, as it is a friend indeed. "Thankfully vours, MRS PAUL PESCHEL, 14 Quitman St., Newark, N. X" A Safe Family Doctor. Peruna has been used In many other homes with the same rsults. The fol lowing are samples: Mrs. M. E. Sey mour, Dye, Ga., writes. "I am ready to speak a fw words in favor of P"rur.a and Manalin. I hav tried them for nearly every ill of life for myself and family, and find them to be all the doctor claims them to b. Peruna cured me of fmalo trouble when my doctor could not. My advice to all suf fring women is, consult Dr. Hartmnn. What he has done for me bo will d for you." MP.S. M. E. SEYMOUR. Peruna Aliei Forty Potails. Mrs. Maria Goertz, Cleo, Oklahoma, writes: "My husband, children and mys-lf have used your medicines, and we al ways keep them in the house in case of necessity. I was restored to health by this medicine, and Dr. Hartmans inval uable advice and books. People ask about me from different places, and are surprised that I can do all of my house Fortunately quotations were not forced up unreasonably during the weeks of greatest activity, and now there is no sign of depression. On the other hand, bars are more firmly held, while many idle mills have resumed in this depart ment and sheetmakers also insist on better terms. Other forms of finished material are steady- and at most points pig is unchanged although concessions are made for Bessemer at Pittsburg. Numerous bridges are being erected by the railways and a heavy tonnage f structural steel is taken. Other railway supplies are in active df-mand with roll ing stock urgently sought. Business in iron is particularly brisk at Chicago. With slight mod-ration in domestic buy ing more attention 13 givf-n to export Aside from a further advance of 2'i cents in men's kip boots and firmness in shoes, the market for footwear has quieted down, but with no disposition to recede from the generally higher range established last week. Makers have fewer new orders, however, and heavy winter footwear has bepn pur chased for the season's requirements. The customary holiday demand has not appeared, though retail-rs have full lines of fancy shoes and slippers. There is a shortage in some grades of hem lock sole, but leather has ceased to ad vance. Hides are easier, especially f ir country lines at Chicago. Even after the decline of the past two weeks th average is above the closing prices of October. Wool remains steady and sales are less than half last year's. Manufac turers purchase carefully, and the goods market ia unusually dull for the season. For the first time in many weeks, the cereal3 exhibited strength, and some ad vance was to be expected after the ex tensive decline. Wheat was started up ward by the foreign markets and prompt response here compelled cover ing of contracts.
