The blood is the foundation of

of the body, and unless it is pure
and rich, good health is impossible.
If disease has entered the system
the only sure and quicLway to drive
it out is to purify and enrich the
These simple facts are well,
known, and the highest medical
authorities agree that nothing but
iron will restore the blood to its
natural condition; and also that
all the iron preparations hitherto
made blacken the teeth, cause lica'd

Brown’sIron Bitters will thor
oughly and quickly assimilate with

Feb. 12, 1880.
Gents:—Upon the recommenda
tion of a friend I tried Brown’s
Iron Bitters as a tonic and re
storative for my daughter, whom
I was thoroughly convinced was
wasting away with Consumption.
Having lost three daughters by the
terrible disease, under the care of
cm? lent physicians, I was loth to
believe that anything could arrest
the progress of the disease, but, to
my great surprise, before my daugh
ter had taken one bottle of Brown’s
Iron Bitters, she began to mend
and now is quite restored to former
health. A fifth daughter began to
show signs of Consumption, and
when the physician was consulted
lie quickly said “Tonics were re
quired;'' and when informed that
. the elder sister was taking Brown’s
Iron Bitters, responded “that is
a good tonic,- take it.”
Adoram Phelps.
Brown’s Iron Bitters effectual
ly cures Dyspepsia, Indigestion and
Weakness, and renders the greatest
relief and benefit to persons suffering
from such wasting diseases as Con
sumption, Kidney Complaints, etc.

XLVIItk Congress-lst Session.
Washington, JaJy 0.
Mr. Hoar from the judiciary committee, re
ported with amendment the Senate bill, fixing
the salaries of judges of District Courts of the
United States at $5000. The bill was amended
merely to add $5500 per annum to tho salary of
each judge except in the District of California.
Mr. Hoar asked unanimous censent for its
present consideration.
Mr. Saulsbury objected, and the hill went to
the calendar.
Mr. Morrill irom the finance committee, re
ported with amendment the Hsuse bill to re
duce internal revenue taxation. Ordered prinfcij.
The River and Harbor appropriation hfl
was taken up. The bill was read, and ament.
ments of tho committee concurred in fcs
Considerable discussion occurred upon tho
neunepiu canal amendment, and without ac
tion upon the subject, the Senate adjourned.
In tiie House Mr. Belmont of New York
called up the motion to reconsider the vote by
which the House refnsod to order to a third
reading the joint resolution authorizing
the President to call an international con
ference to fix on and recommend for universal
adoption a common prime meridian to be used
in the reckoning of longitude and in the
regulation of timo throughout the world.
The vote was reconsidered and tho joint re
solution was read a third time and passed.
Tiie House resumed tho considrration of the
naval appropriation bill and adopted in gross
the amendments agreed to in committee of
the whole.
. Mr. Robeson took the door tc close the de
bate. In the course cf his speech in defence
of his administration of the Navy Department,
Robeson referred to the investigation carried
on by the committee on naval affairs of the
•Dth Congress, and without mentioning him by
name alluded in terms of tho deepest contempt
and insult to Mr. Whitthome of Tennessee.
Speaking of the men who headed the commit
tees in that Congress he said that, “If there
was a man who was accused of stealing school
funds in his own State he came to the front.”
At these words up started Whitthome and
facing Robeson in front of the speaker’s desk,
exclaimed, “That is a lie, whoever tells it or
whoever repeats it.”
Mr. Robeson—I have alluden to no man by
name. It any man recognizes himself by the
description, lot him step forward and deny it.
Members congregated aronnd the two gentle
but the men and there was a good deal of ex
citement, matter was dropped although Robe
son continued in his attack upon Whitthome.
At the conclusion of Robeson’s speech the
bill was passed 119 to 75.
lmmeumieiy auer uie pssago m um uayai
appropriation bill Mr. Wliittliorne of Tennes
seo was recognized on a question of personal
i privilege. He proceeded to reply to the
charges of Mr. Robeson against him, charac
; terizing the statements made by that gentle
man as untrue and said that in uttering them
he (Robeson) stated to the House and country
what was absolutely false. He referred to the
administration of Mr. Robeson as secretary of
the navy and charged him with shaving a
“swag” with the firm of Cottell & Co. Several
points of order were raised and motionss that
the improper language of Mr. Whitthorn© bo
taken down were submitted but not insisted
upon. In conclusion Mr. Whitthorne said
with all the responsibility which belongs to mo
I attach to the forehead of that member
(Robeson) “falsehood and perjury.”
Mr. Robeson replied briefly to the effect that
he would leave the country to judge of a
man who recognized himself in the portrait
which he (Robeson) had painted.
The matter was then dropped.
The House then went into committee of the
whole on the sundry civil appropriation bill.
The bill was discussed by several members and
civil service reform advocated by Messrs.
Willis Bayne and others of the committee. It
then rrajaud tho House adjourned.
The AutopBy of Guiteau.
Philadelphia, July 6.—The Medical News
of this city to-morrow will publish the official
report of the autopsy on the body of Guiteau,
signed by Dr. D. S. Lamb. After detailing
the course of procedure fixed upou and
enumerating those present at the autopsy, he
says: “The examination was then conducted
by me assisted by Drs. Hartigan and Sowers
and Mr. Scafhirt, anatomist of the medical
museum and as near as possible in the order
proposed. The eyes were examined by Dr.
Loring who reported the pupils slightly and
equally dilated; vitreou3 was cloudy and
fundus indistinguishable; the conjunctive of
the left eye was congested. He repeated the
examination two hours later and noticed an
appearance as of transverse fracture of the
lenses A small white scar directed obliquely
downwards, forwards and to the left and con
fined to the scalp was observed midway be
tween the top of the left ear and median line
of the head.” The report says the cerebral
vessels appeared normal; the brain was firm,
its weight including tho cerebrum, cere el
lum, pons and medulla and portion of the
dura was 49^ ounces. On one section of the
cerebrum there was an appearance as of slight
thinning of the gray cortex, a white substance
almost absolutely anaemic; the fissures general
ly presented a considerable depth and general
ly well developed. The ascending frontal was
well defined on each side; the ascending
parielal on the right side well developed in its
lower three-fourths but narrowed in the upper
fourth, but on the left side the narrowing was
less marked. The island of reil presented on
the .right side five fissures and six straight
gyri; on the left side seven fissures and eight
straight gyri. The paracentral lobula was
well marked on the right side; small on the
Tho usual median incision was made and
the abdomen opened. There was an extravasa
tion of blood into the right peetoralis of the
major muscle near the second rib, and the
adipose layer of the abdominal section was
one inch in thickness. The dome of the
diaphragm extended up to the fourth rib ou
each side. There were old pleuritic adhesions
at the apex, of the right lung and
the ujiper and middle lobes were
congenitally united by a connective tissue.
The lung was normal throughout; also the
old pleuritic adhesions of the left lung to the
diaphragm, and between its lobes three small
tubercles, like pigmented patches were ob
served in the upper lobe. The heart weighed
10 0-4 ounces, and its muscular substance was
apparently normal; thore was an abundance of
fat upon its anterior surface, and a villous
patch of old pericarditis near the apex of the
left ventricle. The right ventricle contained
a little blood, justjforming a clot. The valves
were normal. All abdominal viscera present
ed a large accumulation of fat, but they were
normally situated. The liver was congested.
The gall-bladder contained a little bile. The
spleen was lobulated and enlarged; it weighed
IS ounces. The pancreas was normal. The
stomach contained food, and the intestines ap
peared normal, but were not opened. Tho kid
neys were congested; there was a small super
ficial serous cyst on the right one. The results
of the microscopic examinations will be report
ed hereafter.
In a long editorial the Medical News says:
“It must appear from the report of the autop
sy that those psychiatrists who expected to
demonstrate the assassin’s criminal irresponsi
bility by changes in his brain, will have rather
a difficult task. Some deviations from a typi
cally normal brain are referred to in the re.
port, but thoy have absolutely no signification
from the point of view of mental derange
ment. It may be affirmed of Guiteau’a brain,
it presented as little evidence of pathological
change as the brain of any one of his age dy
ing of some other than cerebral disease.

Illinois Crop Reports. ijOSBiS
Chicago, JulyG,—Reports from Illinois and
Nebraska state the wheat crop is most Batter

The Star Route Cases.
Washington. July 6.—Mr. Merrick, of gov
ernment counsel, in the Star route cases, has
just learned that certain testimony taken be
fore the grand jury by Mr. Bliss, also of gov
ernment counsel, has been withheld at the
trial, and he will ask the attorney general to
call another grand jury, in order that new in
dictment may be obtained. Mr. Merrick inti
mates that witnesses can be produced who will
implicate General Brady directly in the divis
ion of the Star route funds.
With reference to the above statement Mer
rick authorizes the statement that Bliss and
Ker are as ignorant as himself of the existence
of_this most important evidence; that there is
no disagreement of counsel, and that he be
ieves these rumors were started by the defonce
for creation of dissensions and distrust among
the prosecution.
The National Board of Health.
The Sundry Civil Service bill makes some
important changes as to the appropriation for
the National Board of Health, which mav
have a serious result. The appropriation is so
reduced as to mako it necessary immediately
to abolish the ten inspectors of small-pox, who
are now examining immigrant trains. It will
also make it necessary for the board to abolish
the publication of its tweekly health bulletin,
The National Board has established two sta
tions, one at Ship Island at the mouth of the
Mississippi, and one off the South Carolina
coast to which all yellow fever vessels or ves
sels otherwise infected are instantly taken up
on the discovery that they are infected.
The reduction proposed by the Sundry Civil
bill are so great that the Board of Health will
not have the means to sustain these stations.
Tbo effect will be to place the mouth of the
Mississippi and the commercial and business
interests of the Mississippi Valley as well as
the health of the people of the country in per
il. The New York quarantine officer has also
been using his utmost exertions to cripple the
Board of Health and prevent the introduction
of the wholesome regulations which
the board has reoommended. The
National Board placed an inspector at New
York to examine immigrants for small pox,
but the quarantine officer there has succeeded
in having him removed, and has had New
York influence enough to carry his point. Let
ters received by the National Board from med
ical officers at Pensacola and other places on
the Southern coast, show that there is danger
this year of a recurrence of the epidemic of
1879, which cost the country so many millions
of dollars and so many thousands of lives. Al
ready three infected ships have been taken to
the quarantine stations at Ship Island.
A Serious Error in the Knit Goods Case.
It is discovered that in passing tne mu 10
correct the error in the Revised Statutes rela
tive to knit goods, an error not less serious
than that which the bill was intended to cor
rect, was committed. The bill which passed
Monday is correct as to its title, which propos
es to correct an error in section 2,501 of the
Revised Statutes. In the text of the bill,
however, the section to be corrected is refer
red to as section 25, which is a very important
error, and oi course tends to nullify the whole
bill. An effort will be made to correct this in
tho Senate, but of course the effect would be j
to seud the bill back to the House, where it j
will be open to the attacks of its enemies, and
inasmuch as it passed »by only the necessary
vote, its friends have some apprehensions as to !
the resuit. The error arose from not carefully
comparing the bill, and it is astounding that
some friends of the measure, who were so
much interested in it, did not take pains to see
what it was proposed to do. Section 25, which
the bill corrects, has no relation to knit goods,
and of course the treasury would construe the
bill. As it now stands, if it should become a
law, it would bo void. The error arose from
cutting out from a copy of the Congressional
Record some reprint matter and inserting it in
the hodv of the bill. The figures in this re
print matter wer© incorrect. A glance at the
heading on the body of this bill, <\r et the Re
vised Statutes,would have prevented tho error.
The statement that Minister Lowell had ten

Brutal Conspiracy to Wreck and Bob an
Express Train—How One of the Gang Be
trayed his Confederates.
St. Lodis, Mo., July 6.—Passengers wlio ar
rived to-night from the southern part of the
State, over the iron Mountain Railroad, bring
an account of an attempted train robbery, the
particulars of which are as follows:
Five mon of the Jesse James sort bandBd
together and agreed to go into the train-rob
bing bnsiness. Having completed their ar
rangements they laid plans for their first job,
which was to be the robbery of an express train
on the Iron Mountain Railway on the night of
tho 4tb.
A few days previous to .the date set for tho
robbery one of the men ‘ weakened” and con
cluded to betray the eang. He we-'t into the
town of Newport, Ark., and, going to the bank
there, gays the bank officers a hint of the con
spiracy. He was taken to the Town Marshal,
and that officer called in Detective Eagan, in
the employ of the railroad and to these two he
told the story. The plan in brief was to mis
place the switch at Hillard’s, six miles north
of Poplar Bluff, wreck the train and during
the confusion the robbers were to do their work.
A plan was then laid to catch the other four of
tho gang. The informant was instructed to go
ahead with his part of the job and he did so.
On the night of the Fourth the trails that
was to be wrecked and robbed pulled out of
Poplar Bluff a little after nine o’clock, but
just ahead of it went a locomotive with De
tectiv i Egan and a posse of seven men armed
with shotguns. To make a long story snort
the locomotive dashed by the open
switch and on to a side track, but
stopped just before [striking the obstructions,
and the posse made a dash for the wou ld-be
robbers, who were so wrapped up in their dia
bolical plot as to neglect to take precautions
against capture. The officers seized two of the
desperaaoes. There were a number of shots
fired, but so far as known nobody was hurt.
The two men captured were taken to Poplar
Bluff and the country is being scoured for the
rest of the gang.
The informant says the men captured were
recognized as living in the vicinity. One of
them is Charles Wilson, and gave his name as
Hery Myers, bnt though this is known to be
an alias the officials of tho railroad and the
county officers are so reticent that his real
name iias not yet been made public. The men
so far have maintained a stubborn silence, re
fusing to :ive tho least hint as to who their as
sociates are. _
Meeting and Organization of the Com
Washington, July G.--Tlie United States
tariff commission all being present, organized
here to-day, and President John L. Hayes da
livored an address. He called the attention of
the commission to the third section of the act
constituting the commission, and outlined
vrliat he considered a proper line of delibera
tion for thorn to pursue. The reading of Mr.
Hayes’s address was greeted with applause. At
its conclusion the act of Congress creating the
commission was read. At the request of tho
president, and with the approval ot the mem
bers, Hon. Robert P. Porter of Washington
consented to act as secretary of the meeting,
pending the formal organization of the com
mission. Some discussion followed as to tho
correct interpretation of the law creating the
commission, and more especially as to the pro
vision made therein for meeting their expenses
It was decided that the president of the com
mission should consult with the Secretary of
the Treasury as to what expenses might be
safely and legitimately incurred. Communi
cations from the President of tho United States
and the Secretary of the Treasury, inviting the
members to call upon them, were read. With
out having perfected a permanent organiza
tion the committee, at 12.30, took a recess, and
proceeded to pay their respects to the Presi
dent. From the Executive Mansion they went
to the Treasury Department and called upon
Secretary Folger.
Tragic End of a Three Daya’ Debauch.
Boston, July 5.—In a drunken altercation
this evening at South Boston,Thomas Maguire,
aged 24 years, stabbed and killed his brother
William, aged 30. Mrs. Magniro, the mother
of the men, lives at No. 2 Granite street, South
Boston, and has three sons, Thomas, William
and Patrick. Thomas and William rre hod
carriers, and Patrick is a brick mason. Thom
as and Patrick have been working at Newport,
R. I., and William at South Braintree, Mass.
The three men came to Boston to spend the
4th, and went on a drunken spree, which they
kept up till this afternoon, when they went to
their mother’s house to sloep off its effects. The
three men were in one bedroom, and Patrick
and William lay on the bed asleep. It is sup
posed that Thomas,wishing to lie down, pulled
William from the bed and awoke him, and a
scuffle ensued, during which William, being a
heavier man, got the better of Thomas, who,
finding himself getting worsted, drew a knife
and plunged it into his brother’s neck, sever
ing the carotid artery. Thomas, seeing his
brother fall, jumped from the second story
window and ran to the Boston Machine Com
pany’s shop, throwing his knife away in bis
flight. There he secreted himself in the pat
tern shed, where he was found by the police
and arrested.
Ho refused to make any statement whatever,
saying he would see a lawyer first. Patrick
and Mrs. Maguiro were also arrested. Patrick
says he was asleep during the occurrence, and
knows nothing whatever about it. Mrs. Ma
guire says she heard no sound of a struggle,
and the first she knew of it was finding her
son’s body on the floor.

Alexandria, July 6.—Raglieb Pasha, pres

the Sultan announcing that tho British Ueet

Ragheb PaBha replied that the ministry had

denwestratious had been made, in con
sequence of which the Sultan’s permission to
resume the work was asked. Pending the
Saltan’s reply no defininite resolution would
be adopted.
Despite all denials to the contrary the work

Quebec Central.
The Quebec Central Railroad of Canada is
rapidly approaching our northern frontier from
Quebec up the Chaudiere Valley. It is work
ing an extension of twelve miles this side of
St. Joseph, to which point the road is now op
erated, and daring tho present year expects to
reach St. George, making ten miles additional
to the above. The magnificent valley is form
ed by the Chaudiere River, which has its rise
at the boundary line between New Hampshire
and Canada, near the source of the Connecti
cut River, and flews in a line almost direct to
the St. Lawrence River, opposite the city of
Last Year's Railroad Earnlmgs.
Henry V. Poor, tho compiler of Poor’s “Rail
road Manual,” says, “It is too early yet to give
a decisive answer to inquiries in regard to rail
road earnings last year, as all the figures havo
not yet been arranged and compared. The
probability is that they will show a very large
increase on the entire railroad system of the
country. I am unable to state the exact per
centage at present. The railroads in the mid
dle division, including the States of New York,
New Jersey, Delaware, etc., Bhow an increase
of 830,000,000. The New England States have
gained about $4,000,000, and the Southern
States also show a considerable increase. The
figures for the Western States are not yet in a
condition to allow me to arrive at any conclu
sion. There is one thing to be considered, how
ever—I do not know how the rates per ton
compare with those of the previous year. The
companies may have hauled a great deal more
freight and received much larger gross earnings
but whether they have made as much money
or not remains to be Been.”
The Railway Age, giving the summary of
railroad building for the first six months of
1882, says the totals are astonishing. Track has
bson laid on at least 179 lines in 37 States and
Territories, adding a mileage of main track
aggregating 5000 miles. This includes only the
main track, and does not include sidings and
second, third and fourth tracks, of which hun
dreds of miles have been laid. The aggregate
reported for the same period last year was only
a little over 2000 miles, and during the same
period of no previous year has it equaled even
that amount. The total railway mileage of
the United States is now more than 107,000
Shot by an Unknown Party.
Tuesday evening Mr. Seth Town of Bidde
ford, who is a section hand on the Boston and
Maine railroad, was walking by Harmon’s cor
ner, when he was shot. The bullet hit him
on the left side of the collar-bone. He fell*
and at first thought he was bit by a brick, bat
upon examination it was found that he bad
been struck by a bullet, ft struck the bone
and glanced oil doing no damage except mak
ing a slight but painful wound. Who bred the
shot, or where it came from is not known.
Another Democratic Misfortune.
IN. V. Tribone.l
A fresh misfortune has overtaken the Dem
ocrats of Maine. The leading Prohibitionists
of the State have decided that it will be lor
the best interests of their party to support the
Republican candidate for Governor, Colonel
Robie. Although they have not said as much
formally, that is practically what their decis
ion amounts to. A meeting of “all friends of
Temperance in Maine, who believe in the rig
id enforcement qj! the Maine Law, and are
willing to act together regardless of party af
filiation,” was called immediately after ilie
adjournment of the Republican Convention, to
meet at Portland. About thirty prominent
Prohibitionists were present. Gen. Neal Dow
offered a resolution approving the Republican
State ticket and reoommendiug it to the sup
port of all friends of prohibition. He support
ed this warmly, and an animated discussion
followed. While nearly all present were will
ing to support Colonel Robie, there were some
who were not willing to approve other candi
dates on the ticket. The resolution was not
adopted, therefore, but after a discussion of
two hours the meeting adjourned sine die
without action. Gen. Dow interprets this re
sult as a declaration by the Temperance lead
ers of Maine that they find no occasion for
independent action in the present situation.
This wise conclusion is|duo largely to Gen.
Dow’s good sense. He knew that Colonel Ro
bie had always been a consistent Prohibition
ist, and that his party would only impeach its
own sincerity by refusing to Bupport him and
running a separate ticket which could have
no other effect than to help the Democratic
party. The wisdom of this course is demon
strated already by the wrath of the Democrats.
Their newspapers are in a painful condition
of mind about Gen. Dow. One editor says ho
received a letter from a respected correspon
dent only a few days before the Prohibition
meeting in which the statement was made that
“Mr. Dow must be in his dotage.” He struck
the sentence out and published the letter with
out it, thinking it was “too harsh.” He is
sorry he did it now, for “in view of the posi
tion Mr Dow took on Saturday, he has either
lost his mental grip, or he exhibits himself as
quite regardless of principle or consistency.”
The Editor is even sad about the future of the
Temperance cause, and is afraid it will perish.
The idea of a Democrat weeping over a disap
pearance like that is very moving. Gen Dow
has evidently hit the bibulous Democracy in
teudor spot.
Portland Daily WholtMale Market.
POBTLANI>, July 0.
Flour is dull with, a very moderate demand; the
stock here is not half as large as it usually is at this
season of the year, and the market is in an excel
lent condition for the new crop. Corn, Oats and
Meal are very firm and prices show a decided ad
vance. Sugars are not very strong and the tone of
the market is easier. Molasses is stronger. Lard is
firm and quotations show an advance. Pork is un
changed but strong and higher prices anticipated.
Potatoes are very scarce and there is not enough of
the old stock to make a market; new potatoes are in
