Men Who Enow Their Business to
Stay in County Offices.
It is understood that the assistant
treasurer and deputy county clerk have
been decided u:wn.
A. Newman, county clerk elect, takes
Us of'ce in January and he will retain
John Wright, the present county clerk,
as his first assistant until October, 1903.
In October, Frank C. Bowen will suc
ceed H. M. PiT'-is as county treasurer
Then it is likely that John Wright will
be arrointed to the nlace of assistant
under Bowen and W. S. Eberle, now
the first assistant in the county treas
urer's office, may become deputy county
clerk, J' hn Wright, who has served in
the county clerk's office for 13 years, is
thoroughly fitted for important positions
in eit'-.er the clerk's or treasurer's office.
The two offices have considerable busi
ness in common. Treasurer-elect Bowen
intends to have a competent force, and
he can mpv.e no better selection than
that of WricM. A. New-man will have
men in Eberle and Wright who have
proved their competency and who ar
in every way fitted for the work.
The county commissioners have much
to do directly with both the clerk's and
treasurer's offices, and the hoard is anx
ious that Wrisrht and Eberle be re
tained. This plan does not suit the poli
ticians, who think the jobs should be
handed around whether the ones tiiey
are handed to are fitto. for the sjlace
or not. but the nublic, whose interests
are to be cared for, will be satisfied with
the arrangement.

Prices and possibilities considered, the
melodrama "The Secret Dispatch." seen at
the Crawford last night was not bad. Of
course it would not have stood the pi-ensure
of dollar prices, but it did not attempt
to. .The cast was not composed of slrtUng
lights, but with the limited means at iheir
command, gave a good show and worked
hard. It was one of the usual war time
stories, bad citizen, worse soldier, good
citizen, hero. Galloping homes in distance,
dusty soldier just in time to take.- charge
and save the day from the hori ifl rebels,
represented by supes in background beat
ing drum and firing revolvv-. Funny
Irishman, hard case with valuable papers
to sell. Hero, shero, tableau. Biff! Vil
lain to the woods.
The company carried good scenerv for a
popular price production a.id knew how
to make rapid changes. A number of the
cast were repeaters and T;he party who
played old Dutchman in 'the first inning
and Jovial Irishman in th? latter half got
his brands of biogue sli;htly mixed. It
was a show that suited ircost of the peo
ple in attendance.
"Just Struck Town." the latest tramp
play piloted by Jule Walters, whose 'Side
Tracked" has made him a familiar figure
in this sort of drama, will be seen here
for the first time at the New CrawJord
theater tomorrow night. Louise Llewellyn,
whose characterisation of a Swedish girl
is said to be abcve the ordinary, is heav
ily featured. Adelaide Walters, the daugh
ter of Jule Walters, is in the play. Spe
cial scenery dapicting unusual scenes and
some unique situations are among the
many promises made. The prices will be
10, 20, 30 andl 50 cents.
That whVch is said to be the biggest
and best "Uncle Tom's Cabin" company
traveling, will appear at the New Craw
ford on FViday afternoon and night. It is
said Leon W. Washburn's Stetson "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" company is composed of
fifty irijen, women and children. As a
scenic production, it Is said to be better
than any other. Among others worthy of
special mention are the Ohio River by
moonlight, the Vision scene and the
Transformation scene at the close. A
number of Shetland ponies, trick mules
and Colonel Sawyer's pack of genuine
Siberian bloodhounds are special features.
Matinee prices will be 15 oents for chil
dren and 25 cents for otheis.
Manager U. D. Newell brings "A Jolly
American Tramp" to the New Crawford

As a general thing, a comic opera Is
merely an excuse for the introduction of
a few local and terpsichprean specialties,
but. in the case of "Tho Princess Chic,"
to be presented at the Grand Saturday,
the rule is broken. Kirtte La Shelle has
written a reasonable libretto which con
tains dramatic and narrative interest, as
well as a persistent comedy element. The
opera represents the closing splendor of
feudal days, when the lord entrenched in
his castle could defy even the encroach
ments of kings. The locale is the
Province of Burgundy, and the historical
personages introduced, are Louis XI of
France, Charles the Bold of Burgundy
and Princess Chic of Normandy. Although
historical accuracy and dramatic sequence
are there, one seidom seeks these things
in comic opera. The critics everywhere
consider "The Princess Chic" merry and
At last Ezra Kendall has abandoned
vaudeville, and at the very time when
his name as a top-line for a bill was a
guarantee of big business in any house
in the United States, and managers had
to make their contract a long way ahead
to secure him at any price. With the
opening of this season he passed under
the management of Liebler & Co., who
have had a play written for him by Her
bert Hall Wlnslow, which those who are
well informed say is framed about the
character of the Indiana village orator
depicted in James Whitcomb Riley's fa
miliar poem of "Jap Miller." "The Vine
gar Buyer," it is called, and Kendall will
present it at the New Crawford Monday
Being Helped Himself Wishes to Help
The papers were never so filled witn
advertisements of remedies that will
cure every known disease, as they are
today; these are invariably accompanied
by letters from people testifying in the
strongest terms to the virtue and merit
of the particular preparation advertised:
but because so much is claimed for the
medicine, it has come to the point where
most readers regard such testimonials
as pure "fakes," and made up out of
whole clcth.
We are glad, however, to vouch for
the reliability of the following from Mr.
Wm. Lichtenwalter. proprietor of the
largest printing house in Canton, Ohio,
regarding the Pyramid Pile Cure, for
which nothing is claimed except that It
will cure any and every form of piles.
"For several months past I have re
ceived so many inquiries from sufferers
asking if my testimonial is authentic
that I am inclined to send In a bill to'
you for postage and stationery. .
It is now two years since I was last
troubled, and my rectum is as clear and
clean as any man who never had piles,
although I suffered with protruding,
bleeding and internal piles for twenty
seven years. I will not attempt to de
tail the agony I suffered, being too
happy to say I believe I am cured, after
two years of evidence.
What will cure one man will some
times not cure another; whether it was
the Pyramid Pile Cure that cured me,
I cannot say; but I have been free from
piles for two years after using your
treatment. I leave sufferers to draw
their own conclusions.
I will answer any communication thpt
a sufferer may ask. and will refer to any
business house, bank or manufacturer
of Canton. Ohio, concerning my identity,
among whom I have lived for forty
eieht years."
Pyramid Pile Cure is sold by drug
gitts for fifty cents a package, or will
be mailed to any address by Pyramid
Drug Co.. Marshall, Mich., upon re
ceipt of price.
Drop this firm a card asking for their
little book describing the cause and cure

Bitter Contests in Number of States
Washington, Nov. 18. As a result of
the recent election, senatorial fights
have opened in a number of states
which promise legislative sessions of
more than usual Interest during the
coming winter. Deadlocks are not im
probable in at least two of the states
Delaware and Colorado and political
conditions in several others are such
that long contests would not be sur
prising. The situation in Delaware has not
been materially changed by the result
of the election, and another winter's
fight is assured there. The state is now
without representation in the senate of
the United States owing to the deadlock
occasioned by Addicks' effort to secure
his election to the upper branch of con
gress. Addicks has enough votes
pledged to him to prevent the election
of any other candidate, but lacks
enough to secure his election. The leg
islatue that will meet in January is so
evenly divided that another deadlock 1
promised, and the state may again be
without representation in the senate.
A bitter contest is certain in Colorado.
The fusionists control the Senate, 18 of
whom are hold-overs, elected in 1900,
who are pledged to the return of Sena
tor Henry M. Teller. The Republicans
have a majority in the house as the re
sult of the election of last week, but not
a majority on . joint ballot. The an
nounced programme is for the Republi
can house to unseat the Democrats
elected in Arapahoe county, the Denver
district, on the grounds of fraud in tha
election. The consummation of this
plan would give the Republicans a ma
jority in joint session.
The Democrats insist that, if this plan
is carried out, the senate will refuse to
meet the house in joint session. anJ
thus defeat the election of a successor
to Senator Teller. If the Republicans
secure control of both houses, they will
probably return Senator Wolcott to the
United States senate. Wolcott's ambi
tion has been to defeat Henry M. Tell
er for re-election, as a vindication of
his course in remaining with the party
when Teller deserted it at the St. Louis
convention, in 1896. There is much op
position to Wolcott in Colorado, even
in the Republican ranks, but he will
probably be able to control the lieoub
lican caucus if his party gets a major
ity on the joint ballot. The fusionists
have no other candidate than Senator
will p.lso have a bitter sena
torial fight, although it is to be a fight
between Republicans instead of between
parties. The Republicans have a large
majority in both the senate and house,
but the preliminary poll shows that the
vote is almost evenly divided between
former Governor Gear and v Charles W.
Fulton, the two leadins; candidates.
The Democrats have just enough
votes to prevent an election, and the
successful Republican candidate will
have to draw a large vote from his riv
al, which does not seem an easy task
at this time. The Republicans are not
bound by a caucus agreement, and the
indications are that the fight between
Gear and Fultoiwivill be prolonged.
in his enorts to secure a. re-election at
the hands of the' Idaho legislature. Sen
ator Hatfield will have a sharp contest.
The control of the legislature will not be
settled until there has been an official
count of Tuesday's vote and until several
other Idaho Republicans will enter into
the contest for Heitfeld's seat.
With nearly unanimous control of the
Kansas legislature, the Republicans will
have difficulty, it is understood, in select
ing a successor to Senator Harris. Gov
ernor Stanley, Congressmen Curtis, Long
and Calderhead will each have a respect
able following, without either of them be
ing within hailing distance of a major
ity. An early decision of the contest is
not expected by those familiar with the
Kansas situation.
The Republicans also have complete
control of the Wisconsin legislature, and
the return of Senator Spooner seems cer
tain. Still, Governor La Follette is dis
posed to insist that Spooner subscribe to
certain state declarations to which the
senator has refused his approval thus
far. La Follette may be able to defer the
re-election of a senator, although it is
not thought he has any chance of pre
venting it.
Distribution of "War Vessels Over
Greater Part of Globe.
Washington. Nov. 18. It has been de
termined by the administration that the
United States flag shall henceforth be dis
played more generally throughout' the
world than has been the case in the past,
and as soon as the naval maneuvers in
the south are concluded the sh'pe will bo
divided into seven divisions and as many
permanent naval stations established.
The greatest number of naval stations
the government has maintained in the past
has been four, but in recent years we
have had but three, the North Atlantic,
South Atlantic and the Asiatic. The fourth
station was the European, but when the
ships on that station were recalled at the
outbreak of the war with Spain they wers
not returned until last spring, and in the
interim our flag was not displayed in that
quarter at all.
The navy department has drawn up a
plan for seven permanent naval stations,
two on the home coast and five in forvten
waters, as follows: The North Atlantic,
thf Caribbean division, the -Asiatic station,
the cruiFing division of the Asiatic station,
the Pacific station, the European station
and the South Atlantic station.
Thi3 plan involves a general distribut!n
of the naval strength of the t'nited States
over the greater part of the globe, so that
in the event of a disturbance that endan
gers the interests of the country at any
point in foreign territory, vessels will ne
within easy steaming distance.
It is significant that the' most powerful
vessels are to be concentrated in Asiatic
waters and the fleet there will be exceeded
in numbers and offensive strength only by
that on the North Atlantic const. It is
proposed to send the battleships Ken
tucky. Oregon and Wisconsin, as soon as
the maneuvers in the south are concluded,
and six other battleships will be added to
the fleet. The vessels of this class ihat
are now under construction are scheduled
to go to the far east as rapidly as they
come from the yards of the contractors.
The ironclad monitors Monadnook and
Monterey are already on that station.
In addition to these powerful vessels a
cruising division will be attached to the
Asiatic station, made up of large and small
ships that can be called on for emergencv
duty. The cruisinr- division will embrace
the New Orleans, the Yorktown. the Wil
mington, the Helena, the Vicksburg, the
Princeton, the .Annpnolis, the Don Juan
de Austria and the Isle de Cubn.
It is the intention to have eight modern
battleships in the North Atlantic station,
the ships now slated for that command
being the Kearsarge, the Alabama, Ias
sachusetts, Indiana, Maine, Illinois, luwa
and the Texas. The Caribbean division of
the North Atlantic station is made neces
sary by reason of the newly acquired in
terests of the United States in that quar
ter. The following vessels will be assign
ed to that station: The Olympia, Mont
gomery,. Marietta, Machias, Panther and
Another new station to be established is
the one on the Pacific coast. It will be
composed, for the time being, of the New
York as flagship, the Philadelphia. Hos
ton, Marblt head and Bangor. The Brook
lyn is to be the flagship of the European
station, and with her will be the Chicago,
San Francisco and the Albany. The
South Atlantic station will be composed
of the Newark, the Atlanta and the Nash
ville. It will be seen from this programme tl'at
the navy department has laid out a pl-m
for the steady employment of the greater
part of the commissioned ships of the na
vy. It will also furnish a large number
of command positions for the ever grow
ing list of rear admirals, to provide duty
for whom is a regular thirteen puzzle or
the officers of the department. Admiral
Taylor, the chief of the bureau of naviga
tion, worked out the details of this scht-me
at the suggestion of the president. The
latter still believes in activity for the per
sonnel and material of the- navy, and as
long as he remains in the White House
the same policy will be maintained.
Conservative Republicans Would Go
Further Than Roosevelt.
Washington, Nov. 18. The opinions of
Republican statesmen on the trust ques
tion are beginning to crystalize as they
get together and exchange views here,
preliminary to the meeting -of congress.
Even the most conservative Republicans
are now admitting the necessity for some
kind of anti-trust legislation. It is not
surprising to learn, , however, that none
of them has a scheme to correct the evils
of Industrial combinations without run
ning foul of the Constitution.
President Roosevelt has read over his
recommendation as to trusts as well as
other provisions of his message very gen
erally to senators and members who call
ed before he left town. It is generally
understood that his recommendation as to
trusts is very mild and conservative, and
some of the conservative Republicans in
congress would evidently be willing to go
further than the president in curbing
these combinations. One Republican. wide
ly known, and possessed of considerable
wealth, observed the other day. from his
financial experiences in New York, that
it was impossible to 'gain any reliable in
formation of big corporations that repre
sent billions and billions of dollars in
stock, except one happens to have a close
personal friend among the directors.
"It is like looking into a dark cellar for
light, said he.
Every day's development on the speaker
ship fight for the Fifty-eighth congress
brings complications for the leading aspi
rants for General Henderson's gavel. Pete
Hepburn, one of the strongest men in the
Republican party In the house, came out
today for Babcock, after admitting that
Payne, Dalzell, Cannon, Littlefield or
Burton would prove a success if elected.
Mr. Hepburn thinks that with the all
powerful rules of the house back of him.
Cannon would make an unsafe or unwise
speaker, on account of his aggressive na
ture and inclination to be arbitrary.
"I have thought that the contest would
be between Mr. Cannon and Mr. Babcock,
should the latter man be a candidate,"
said Colonel Hepburn today. "I have
great respect for the abilities of Mr. Can
non. While he is not an educated man,
in the sense of the school men, he prob
ably knows a greater number of facts
than any other members of the house
and particularly facts connected with the
every day workings of our government.
Such practical matters as revenue and
expenditures he has at his fingers' ends,
so to speak, and while he is not at all a
persuasive man. he has great power of
expression. With the exception of Ben.
Butterworth, he is the best debater I
have ever known in the house. He is ex
ceptionally strong in enforcing his views
of a subject before his audience, be it
large or small.
Colonel Hepburn says that if an agree
ment can be reached as to what bureaus
shall be combined under the proposed de
partment of commerce, the bill to create
that executive department will probably
be passed.
Congress will meet this year on Decem
ber 1, the first Monday of the month
falling on that date. As both bouses are
fully organized, they will be able to pro
ceed immediately to business. With near
ly three weeks of clear sailing before
them, prior to the holiday recess, it will
be no surprise if considerable work is
There are a few matters pressing for
action this winter outside of the supply
bills, and it will be necessary to dispose
of them speedily, if at all. The senate
will have several reciprocity treaties to
consider, if it is so disposed. The house
will probably have three or four appro
priation bills out of the war before the
statesmen hasten away for the festivities
of Christmas.

could be procured the farmers say they

been strengthened and my health and
energy has returned and I take interest

restored my health and I am corre
spondingly grateful." Name given by
