Iiawrenco Spear Says He Did Make Him an Offer. Not Washington, March 18. Lawrence Spear, an employe of the Electric Boat company, was the principal wit ness today before the Lilley Subma rine " Boat company investigation committee. Representative Hobson (Ala.) testified before the committee several days ago that Mr. Spear in formed him that his company would use its influence with the speaker to have him placed on the naval com mittee, "if he stood right on subma rines." Mr. Lilley has filed with the com mittee an unfdgned communication asking that "William Duels of New York city, and Robert Mica Floy of Cold Springs Harbor, N. Y., both for merly directors of the Electric Boat company, resigned because of the amount used for corruption, or for which they would make no account ing." Mr. Spear said that he was one of the vice presidents and the naval con structor of the company. He 1b a graduate of the naval academy, hav ing served in the construction corps and relieved Mr. Hobson in charge of the school of naval -architecture at Annapolis. He resigned from the na val service July 1, 1902, and entered the service of the Submarine Boat company. Mr. Spear said that the last time he had seen Mr. Hobson was at the capital a month) or six weeks ago. He had gone to see him, he said, at the instance of Vice President Frost of the Electric Boat company, to give him a friendly warning against an other man who was" trying to in fluence submarine boat legislation. In his testimony today Mr. Spear denied that he had told Representa tive Hobson that he would use his in fluence with Speaker Cannon to have Hobson appointed on the naval af fairs committee, provided be was "right" on submarines. Mr. Spear admitted he had told Hobson's secre tary that he would assist Hobson in any way he could. ' - FORCED TO RESIGN. Former President Celebrates Birthday Quietly at His Home. Princeton, N. J., March 18. Today Grover Cleveland is celebrating, in his quiet way his seventy-first birthday. Although many reports have been cur rent lately to the effect that he is 111, still today finds him comparatively hearty for a man of his years. President Cleveland, being the only living ex-president of the United States, is a man of international In terest. He is a typical American and during his two terms as president of the United States left a decided im pression on its history. This afternoon the students of Princeton university will gather for their annual celebration of his natal day. The students will form a proces sion and march to his residence. There amid great enthusiasm and applause is is expected Grover Cleveland will make a brief speech to the students, as has been his custom for years. His life here at Princeton Is simple, quiet and unostentatious. He is frequently seen on the streets when the weather permits, in conversation with the town people and college professors. For years it was his custom to enter actively into local politics, but of late years he has withdrawn entirely from this. Grover Cleveland's wife is charming and is thoroughly liked wherever she is known. His children are a source of great happiness and pride to Mr. Cleveland. He seldom leaves Prince ton. - Being director in 'the Metropoli tan ' Life Insurance company and prominent in the Association of Life Insurance Presidents, he has occasion ally to make a business trip to New York and always returns as soon as possible. Correspondents of the lare - New York and Philadelphia dallies find it very hard to secure interviews with Mr. Cleveland on public questions. If he has anything to state he calls about him students who represent these pa pers and they telegraph- it -over the Kaiser's Consin Quits Army Rather Than Give Up a Woman. Berlin, March 18. Prince Joachim Al brecht of Russia, second cousin of Em peror William, has resigned from the army, where he held the rank of major and will not again be permitted to wear the German uniform. The resignation of the prince, it is' declared, was re quested by Emperor William. According to the Mlttag Zietung, Em peror William has been extremely dis satisfied with the prince because of his continued relations with Baroness Liebenburg. It was because of his in terest in this woman that the prince was punished 18 months ago by being sent out to Join the German forces In the field in Southwest Africa, The baroness was at one time an actress and played in the theaters of Berlin. Her maiden name was Marie Sulzer- The prince desired to marry her, but this was impossible because of the in equality of their social stations. Maria Sulzer,. then obtained the title of Baroness Liebenburg through marriage with an Austrian baron at a suburban registry office at Brixton Hill, London, she and the baron parting at the con clusion of the ceremony. It is declared that the baron was to receive a large sum of money for hav ing conferred his title upon the act ress so that it would be possible for her to marry the prince, after she had se cured a prearranged divorce from her husband. It ' is understood, however, that this financial transaction was never completed and the divorce was never obtained. In the meantime the prinoe and the baroness have been living, it is declared, under a transparent incognito in Prussia. This went on until Emperor William decided to intervene.

Union Pacific Officials May Return to Old Division Points. Rumor has it that the officials and employes of the Union Pacific are not pleased with the new arrangements of having the crews of the freights stop at Salina and go back to Ellis. It is claimed that a new time table will not be issued until the matter is given a better trial. But If it is not more sat isfactory than it has been another change will be made. It is said the change suggested is that several crews do local work from Salina to Ellis and that the remainder of the crews-run through. This would accomplish more than the present way.

RAiLR0AD NEWS. Threatened Action Against Har . rim an System Helps Hill. Southern Pacific Must Cut Out Portland Tourist Business. SHUTS OUT SEATTLE. Northern Pacific Road Only unieway to l'ir?et Sound. Other Items of Interesf in Railway Circles. It is believed that ths" Rnrimn lines are barred from retaliating upon the Hill lines, for the closing the Port- iana gateway, by the defense thev have to make to the proceedings of the government to dissolve the combina tion. The allied lines will have to con tend that they are distinct and com petitive. Force would be given to the contention of the government if the Southern Pacific should make common cause with the Union Pacific. It would ue consiaerea evidence of an illegal merger of the lines. The situation does not affect round trip tOUriSt tickets fmm tho aat tn Puget Sound cities through the Hunt ington gateway from points west of uenver. Portland must be made the destination.baggage rechecked and new tickets bought to continue the remain der of the Journey. The following statement has been made by A. D. Charlton, assistant general passenger agent of the Northern Pacific: "The ruling of the commission re quiring concurrence of our line In tar iffs to the Pacific Northwest and -without which through tickets via Port land cannot be sold in the east, has no effect on the interchange of business covering roundtrip tickets. Only one way business is affected. There is con currence between our road and the Southern Pacific in the ticketing of Dusiness irom ualiiornia via the North ern Pacific, for local as well as through traffic. Interchange California Business. We also concur in the interchange covering all westbound business into California, We do not anticipate any change in our relations with the South ern Pacific, as it is a distinct and sep arate line from the Oregon Navigation, the Oregon Short Line and the Union Pacific system, and we all know that the Southern Pacific is a competitor of the Oregon Navigation, the Oregon Short Line and the Union Pacific for this business. Portland loses nothing as the gateway has been opened by the Spokane, Portland & Seattle. Tour ist business through Portland is not confined to the Northern Pacific, but may be conducted as usual over the Great Northern and the Canadian Pacific. Notwithstanding this reassuring statement, railroad men outside the Hill lines are not comfortable, as a re sult of the closing of the Portland gate way. It is said that the cause lies further back than the ruling of the commission and is found in the refusal of the Hill lines to participate in the agreement - of transcontinental . lines. This permitted Harriman lines taking passengers through the Huntington gateway and via Portland to the faouna, to absorb the local fare between Port land and Puget Sound cities. The re fusal of the Hill lines was followed by the action of the commission in ruling that nonDarticipating roads could not be legally forced to accept through tickets of other lines. The object of the Hill lines was obviously to get the long haul from the east rather than permit the Harriman lines to carry passen gers clear to Portland before the Hill lines earned anything on th traffic. Passengers to Puget Sound from Den ver or east of that city must travel via Billings or St. Paul, unless they want to pay the additional local fare from Portland. It must also be paid on the return Journey through Portland. Points west of Denver including Salt Lake City, Ogden and others, can still sell tickets to Puget Sound stations via Portland, since the territory Is not competitive with the Hill Unes. To all far eastern points the Dars nave Deen put up by the interstate commission. Will Out Down Tourist Travel.

Will Announce Reduced Fares . to . Eastern Sninmer Resorts. It was announced authentically to day from the office of the general passenger agent of the Santa Fe, that the low rates of last season wouM be made again this season for eastern points. This much, has been definite ly decided1 although the rates to the various points have not been fully made out. There is a strong prob ability that the Santa Fe may be able to announce lower rates than last season although this has not been definitely decided as yet. The busi ness of last year to eastern points was larger by far than that of any pro ceeding year ana the Santa Fe is de sirous of retaining the same vohim of business or if possible to increase this tourist travel. The rates which will be definitely announced in a few days, will apply to all Journeys to the Atlantio coast. New England points, the Addrondacks, Canadian resorts. Northern Wisconsin,' Michigan and the Great Lakes region and points in Minnesota, in addition) tn si la.nxa niiTnihM "i f nflia, f-a irrw eji. summer resorts. The Santa Fe is also . planning a rate for a one way trip' from Kan sas and Oklahoma points to New York city via the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic ocean which Is des tined to become quite popular. MAY MAKE RAIL CHANGES. Members of Committee to Submit Re port at Meeting. Members of the steel rati committee of which G. Li.. Peck of Pittsburg, general manager of the Pennsylvania, lines west, is chairman, have com pleted their report to be submitted to the American Railroad association at its semi-ennual meeting. Important changes in the specifica tions have been decidied upon and the controversies among Che members on the committee have ended. The com- miLiee na ueea woritiug nearly & year, and its decision will affect near ly every railroad in the United States. A minority report recently made inti mated that the Pennsylvania railway had been able to secure from the steel rail manufacturers what it desired, probably on account of so many mill being situated on the Pennsylvania line. Julius Kruttschnitt, director of preparation of the Harriman line, drew up a minority report and then resigned from the committee, but an nounced that he will carry on the: fight for better steel rails single handed. It is now reported that the: committee "has decided to report in fa vor of a rail with a somewhat broader base and with a different sha-pet) head. These changes, it is stated, will make a better balanced rail and one which will he anle to withstand the strain of the great locomotive' now in use when they strike the rail.

This question is becom ing widely discussed since L. T. Cooper first advanced his theory that the stomach is the true seat of life and all health dependent upon it. Mr. Cooper, who has met -with re markable success in the sale of his new medicine, believes that the stom ach is responsible for most sickness, and that this organ is weak in the present generation. While discussing this theory recently, he said: "I am asked time and again to tell why my medicine has made such a record wherever I have introduced it. My answer always is, 'because it restores the stomach to a normal condition. No one will deny that today there are more half-sick men and women than ever before. Nothing critical seems to be the matter with them. They are Just lialf-sick most of the time. They don't know really what la the matter with them. I have talked with thou sands during the past two years, and few knew Indeed what their trouble was. One said nervousness, another said kidney trouble, another . liver complaint. -some constipation, or heart trouble, or lung trouble. Many had treated, as they called it, for most of these diseases at different times. A very common complaint is -'all run down,' or tired all the time,' or 'no appetite.' " . "I know positively that every bit of this chronic ill health is caused by stomach trouble, and nothing else. My New riscovery .puts the stomach in sound condition In about six weeks. Mighty few people can be sick with a sound digestion. That is why my med icine is selling at such a tremendou rate. I have convinced many thou sands of people that these things are so, and the number is growing by leaps and bounds." " Among more recent converts to Mr. Cooper's beliefs Is Mr. Edgar L. Hind living at 6 Tappan Street, Everett, Mass. Mr. Hinds has this to say on the subject:- . "I have suffered with stomach trouble for eight years. I was not sick enough to be in bed, but Just felt bad all the time. My greatest trouble wa that I always felt tired, would get up in the morning feeling as tired a when I went to bed. "I had a very irregular appetite, and was troubled with dizzy spells. If I stood for any length of time, I would have a dull pain In the lower part of my back. I was nervous and felt all the time as though something terrible was going to happen. I tried many kinds of medicine, but nothing ever helped me. "I had about given up all hope of ever being in good health again, when I heard so much of Cooper and de cided to try his medicine. I took one bottle of his New Discovery and wa greatly surprised at the result. I ct f n d 15 nniina In T can now eat anything I wish, and feel like a new man. I cheerfully recom mend this medicine to all sufferers from stomach trouble." It is worth anyone's time, who is not enjoying good health, to learn of Mr. Cooper's wonderful preparations. We are selling them la large quantities. Geo. W. Stansfleld, 632 Kansas Ave.
