"Washing-ton. D. C. March ST. Manager Marmir-sf today received a special dis-pen.-ution from President Ban Johnson J errn i 1 1 i toj- him to announce the- names of The Vahir:trton team. On paper the local team looks strong. The Siab artists are i'arrick. the star pitcher of hesc. year's New York team: Mercer of the same club: Gefir.

Manager Hush Duffy of the Milwaukee club, in Fpeoksng of the condition of affairs, to day said: "I am perfectly satisfied with the team already selected to represent Milwaukee, but I expect to have one more pood pitcher In order to compare; with the balance of the team. All the managers fig-tire out that Milwaukee has some of the best pitchers in the league, but as two or three of them axe strang ers to me I am a tittle at sea. I do know, however, that the infield will be as fast as any in the league. Oilbert at second base will shine as brilliantly as any man ever seen in that position In the west. "I have watched Gilbert play in the east, and know that there are few his equal, and-the) fart that he is so fast in getting to base will make him as strong at the bat as many men who bat a preat dead higher than he does. The people of Milwaukee are well acquainted with Conroy, Burke and Anderson, and I am sure they will agree with me that these three men are strong enough for any team in the league. In the cutfielj I l:ave Waldron and Hallman, who, from all retorts last year, are fast and good fritters. In the catching department I t-.ave three men whom it will be hard to duplicate in the west Maloney. Connor and L-eaJiy. I have been offered good catchers by other magnates for Ieahy and Connor, but knowing the men pei feotly I had to turn the offers down. "Connor and Leaby are strong- bat ters. jrood throwers and fast on the bases, and if they do not make goavl in Milwaukee I will be a very disappointed Tnai. in addition 1 have Fred Kamer for substitute fielder and Friel. a young fieluer from tha Connecticut state league." ' TAYLOR SIGNS TWICE. New York Pitcher la Accused by Cleveland of Double Dealing. New York, March 27. Pitcher" Luther H. Taylor, who has sent the New York club a signed contract for the season of 19cl. has also signed w ith, the Cleveland Anii-ri.-im learue for the coming season. President Kiifoyl of the Cleveland club eiiowel a set cf documents at the Amer ican league meeting- in Philadelphia, all of them with Taylor's name attached, which, if repudiated, wmiM tend to put the yountr pitcher In the position of a contract jumper. "In Fstrunry," sai3 Kiifoyl. "Taylor irpo&c"hed Manacer McAleer's brother la ton Aroreles. Cal.. and told him he v.i ik i ly t iviu H4 : Cleveland club. McAleer wired his brother and he sent him word to pet Taylor's-terms end sin him, provided the pitcher had not signed with the New York team, which holds him under reserve. Taylor pig-ned a contract with us. In addition Taylor accepted S100 advance money and we hold his receipt for that amount. He has since tried to return the money, but we have refused to accept it and have or dered him, throusrh our attorney, to re pot t at Cleveland April 1. If he does not do so we will bring proceedings ag'ainst Taylor at once." WHITNEY'S X.A BEILE FARM. Hamburg in Splendid Condition and Active as a 2-Year-Old. Lexintrton, Ky March 27. All is bustie .and activity at W. C. Whitney's La Belle stock farm, seven miles from here on the Frankfort pike, especially around the stud barn, where the trio of Whitney stallions are now housed. With Hamburg, imported Meddler and Lissak, the New York millionaire has three stal lions that would be the envy of any breeding establishment in the country. Great interest naturally centers around Hamburg as a new comer at the farm and he receives the major part of atten tion, just at this time, and it is a toss-up with Meddler as to which can be con sidered the premier sitallion at the farm. In addition to the three stallions Mr. Whitney has about ,75 brood mares on the farm, which is given over entirely to his stock. Hamburg is in splendid condition, and is as active as a 2-year-old. His step is springy and he exhibits as he walks the strength of hock and hindquarters which bore him to so many victories. He is long and rangr, and beautifully proportioned, not yet showing the heavi ness of neck and shoulder characteristic of the horse which has done stud duty. He is bred to some of the choicest mares on the place. Hallyhoo, with a chestnut filly fnal by Kingston at her side, full sister to the Futurity winner Ballyhoo Fey, has been bred to Hamburg. Imported Isis by Bend Or, out of Shotover. for which Mr. Whitney paid IS.FOO, has also been bred to the son of Hanover-Lady Reel. Her self a Derby winner, she is by a. Derby winner and out of a Derby winner. Shotover being by Hermit is also by a winner of the Irerby. Such mating should produce a foal of the very highest cla-ss. and it would be interesting to know what a yearling by a $60,000 horse out of a $3,500 mare would bring in the sates ring. i ' WILLIE MARTIN MAY RIDE.

Donlin Goes to McGraw. Hot Springs. Ark., March 27. Donlln's desertion to the American league comes as a hutre surprise, having eigned to play with the St. Ixmis club. according to President Frank MI. Kobtson. Donlin "jumjx-d" the Cardinals once before this season, tying up with the San Jose club of the Southern California Winter leatrue. He seated at the time that ho signed with the coast organization that lie was through with St. I Amis and the National leatrue. But "Mikey" relented in the coui-se of time, and last Thursday reach, ed Hot Springs for a "boilina: out." Mr. Kobison had stated a full week atco that Ifcmlin was amnntr the players wiwim he had landed, and the boy's presence in this part of the country created the impres sion that he w;us coming back to the fold. Put he listened to Johnny McGraw's salve slineine:. and the result is that the Kalti morean ha.s landed one of the most prom ising youngsters in the base ball world to aid him in bringing fame to the Monu mental city and the American league.

Fresi dent Jim Burns and Manager G-erge Seal lings tried to induce Barrett to sign at the meeting of tha American league at Philadelphia last week, but at that, time Barrett seemed to be lukewarm, and there, was a scare amone the lociU man agers, who feared that the little fielder might change his mind and return to the National league rorces.

Peft'er, of Topeka, writes on "Prohibi tion in Kansas." He says: "Our prohibitory legislation has all been through the courts; and the result, in a few words, is that in Kansas any thing and everything in the nature of a drinking saloon, tippling shop, dram shop, or joint is unlawful from any and every point of view. Intoxicating liquors may be lawfully sold in Kansas for medical, mechanical, and scientific pur poses only, and nobody other than a legally permitted druggist may sell for these purposes. Hence the person wnom we designate a joint-keeper deliberately and defiantly puts himself outside the law every time he sells a glass of whisky or a mug of leer to any person for any purpose. Furthermore, the place in which he carries on the unlawful traffic waa long ago declared to be a public nuisance. "This kind of legislation differs from criminal laws generally in one import ant particular. If a horse be stolen, a house burglarized, or a man beaten or robbed, the offence is primarily one against property or person, and hence it is presumed that the personal interest of the individual most immediately con cerned is sufficient to move him to give information of the offence to the author ities; but in the case of unlawful liquor selling, the offence is neither against pei'son nor property. The person who buys the liquor wants it for his own use. He asks for it, pays for it. and drinks it, or carries it- away for future use. The offence is not against the person or his property, but against the whole people in their organized capacity as a state. It is not against one, but against all, taken as one, that the seller has sinned. No one person is more interested in the transaction than another, for all are equally concerned as citizens or resi dents of the state. "It is not such an offence as would ordinarily and naturally move the aver age citizen to notify the law officers, even if he were present at its commis sion and knew all about it. The offence being against the public, obviously pub lic officers ought to look after the case. And If the county attorney fails or re fuses to proceed, or if, for any other rea son, this law is not enforced in any coun ty, the attorney "general of the state is required to appoint one or more assist ant attorney generals as many as he sees fit for that county for the purpose of enforcing this particular law. It will thus be seen that our laws and legal machinery are amply sufficient for the complete execution of the prohibitory law in every part of the state; and it is a fact that whenever and wherever the officers that are charged with its execu tion have faithfully done their duty as the law provides, there has been no more difficulty in enforcing this law than there has been in enforcing the ' law against any other offence. "In a carefully prepared report by an experienced and thoroughly competent agent of the State Temperance Union, submitted a little more than a year ago, it was stated that 129 towns had bpen visited and canvassed, and that of these 129 places, 27 openly protected liquor shops on condition of their paying cer tain stipulated sums of money at stated intervals; 34 allowed joints to run through 'apparent collusion on the part of public officials;' and 40, or less than one-third of the whole, appeared to have no such places running. More than two tWrda of the towns ignore the violation of the law; nearly half of these openly exacting and receiving revenue from the unlawful traffic." . Poison in Celery Soup. Helena,' Mont.. March 26. Mrs. J. E. Toteman died here as the result of a mysterious poisoning. With four mem bers of her family she was stricken while fining Sunday. The others recovered but she steadily grew worse, death re sulting in the greatest agony. A celey soup served during the meal is supposed to have contained the poison. The ser vant who prepared the soup Is now in the hospital suffering from nervous pros tration, and it 1s believed that whil; temporarily unbalanced she put poison in -he soup. Mrs. Toteman was the wife of the superintendent of the Big Blackfoot Milling company. The Sultan Must Settle. Tangier, Morocco, March 26. The American consul general here, Mr Gummere, says he intends to have a defi nite settlement with the sultan of Mo rocco concerning all American claims and will demand an apology for the dis courtesy of the Moroceoan grand vizer and minister of foreign affairs.

Many People in Franklin County Have the Pearl Fever. Hunt For the Precious Gems Along the Fishing Streams. SOME VALUABLE FINDS One Discovered Estimated to Be Worth Si 00. Tinted Beautifully and About the Size of a Pea. Ottawa, March 27. There is considers ble excitement In this vicinity over the finding of several really valuable pearls in the mussel shells along the streams that flow into the Marias des Cygnes. Many people have developed the pearl hunting fever. The favorite groun seems to be creek 110. People along its banks have tha pearl fever in epidemic form. Claims hav been staked out in many instances, and much profit 'is expected. In instances Very valuable pearl3 have been lound; a young man exhibited one in the city yesterday, which he claims came from the mud not a stone's throw from the Nolan-Cunningham camp of last year, that had been valued to him at $100. It was tinted a beautiful soft blue and gray, with a bronze light showing on the surface, and waa about the size cf a pea. The most common form of the 110 pearls are the pear shaped, the seed and the "baroque;" from all of them come gleams of exquisite color radiate. Knthusiasts declare that there is more money in pearl hunting than in raising grain or stock and far less risk. There has been an endeavor to keep the "find' a secret, for obvious reasons, and pro found ignorance is expressed by some of those best informed as to the facts. It is even rumored that the real reason for so many seemingly unsuccessful "fish ing" excursions by Ottawa sportsmen during the last two seasons was not un connected with the new industry. FATHER JAMES LEAVES. Beloved Catholic Priest Long at Em poria, Going to Canada. Emporia, March 27. The Rev. Father James, who has been in charge of the Catholic church at this point for the past five years, has been called to a larger field of labor, Chihauhau, Canada, about rorty miles from Ontario.

Father James has advanced the in terests of his church very materially during his incumbency here and a large number of friends outside his congrega tion. as well as his parishioners, will regret to hear of his leaving and will ex tend best wishes for his temporal and spiritual prosperity in liis new field of labor.

Catarrh has tiecome such a common disease that a person entirely free from this disgusting complaint is seldom met with.

Here is the case of Mr. Henry Pag-e, No. 302 East Fourth street, a resident' of Topeka for twenty years, says : "Alive weeks' attack of grippe left me as it does many others, with a weakness of the kidneys. The pain across the loins and the trouble with tlie kidney secretions, particularly noticeable at nifrht, were, to say the least, annoying, and I thought if Doan's Kidney Pills performed half what they promised, tho treatment might help me. I procured a box at Rowley & Snow's drug store, corner of Sixth street and Kansas avenue, and took it. The treat ment was-very satisfactory. To say I endorse Doan's Kidney Pills is a mild way cf expressing my opinion of that remedy." Doan's Kidney Pills are for sale by all druggists 50c a box Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo., N.

The industrial commission has made public a report upon the taxation of corporations prepared, by its expert ag:ent, Mr. George Clapperton. The report makes a volume of 178 paos. The jneat part of it is devoted to a sum mary of the tax systems of the states of Massachusetts. Connecticut. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois. Wisconsin, Iowa and Texas. Mr. Clapperton says that he found the general property tax system prevailing in all the. states, but that there are distinct ive features' in the various states, which are especially marked in the taxation of corporate property. He does not indorse the system of levying a fixed rate upon net earning:?, which is in vogue in rela ware amf Virginia, finding that, while th system is theoretically satisfactory, it "does not meet the varied business devel opments of corporations." He also finds the general property tax unsatisfactory. On tliiw point he says: "It is clear that under this system there are numerous forms of wealth that do not and cannot be made to bear a just share of the public burdens and which in large part evade or escape taxation, and some forms, which, when reached, at all under the prevailing" general property tax, are not equally and uniformly, but un justly and disproportionately taxed as compared with other property. The in evitable result Is that real estate and some forms of personalty are unduly bur dened with taxation." t'pon the whole. Mr. Clapperton con cludes that an income tax in the most equitable, saying: "There is a growing class of citizens who receive large incomes, or salaries and enjoy all the advantages of society and good government, who, though possessed of abundant ability to pay taxes, are un der existing: svstem oracticallv exempt from taxation or inadequately taxed. This , class is receiving and must continue to receive especial attention in the revision or reformation of taxing systems in the several states. "While a tax upon individual- incomes is generally conceded to be just and equitable in principle, it haa been received with disfavor and regarded as impractical in its operation. It is apparent, however, to the careful stu dent of commonwealth taxation that be rause of its justice and the increa-sing ef ficiency of state administrative methods that are being evolved, the idea of a lim ited supplementary state income tax is growing in favor and coming to be more generally regarded as a practical measure under state supervision. Never Likes a Plat-Iron. A woman who suffered for three years from nervous prostration says two bottles of Lichty's Celery Nerve Compound ef fected a complete cure. She hardly knows today whether she has nerves or not, as she never feels them. It is certainly a wonderful remedy. Sold by Geo. W. Stansfield, Ki2 Kansas avenue; Marshall Bros., 115 Kansas avenue. AN EASY WAY To Keep Well. It is easy to keep well if -we would only observe each day a few simple rules of bealth. The all important thing is to keep the stomach right, and to do this it is not necessary to diet or to follow a Bet rule or bill of fare. Such pampering eimply makes a capricious appetite and a feel ing that certain favorite articles of food must be avoided. Prof. Wiechold gives pretty good ad vice on this subject; he says: "I am 68 years old and have never had a serious Illness, and at the same time my life has been largely an indoor one, but I early discovered that the way to keep healthy was to keep a healthy stomach, not by eating bran crackers or dieting of any sort; on the contrary, I always eat what my appetite craves, but for the past eight years I have made it a daily prac tice to take one or two cf Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets after each meal, and I attribute my robust health for a man of my age to the regular daily use of Stuart's Tablets. My physician firs tadvlsed me to use them because he said they were perfect ly harmless and were not a secret patent medicine, but contained only the natural digestives, peptones and diastase, ana after using them a few week-? I have never ceased to thank him for his advice. I honestly believe the habit or taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals is tne real health habit, because their ns-3 brimrs health to the sick and ailing and preserves health to the well and strong." Men and women past fifty years of ag need a safe digestive after meals to tn pur a perfect digestion and to ward off aioease and the safest, best known ana most widely used la Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
