Kidney diseases may be prevented by purifying, renewing, and invigorating the blood with Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. When, through debility, the action of the kidneys is perverted, these organs rob the blood of its needed constituent, albumen, which is passed off in the urine, while worn out matter, which they should carry off from the blood, is allowed to remain. By the use of Ayer’s Sarsaparilla, the kidneys arc restored to proper action, and Albu minuria, or Bright’s Disease is prevented. Ayer’s Sarsaparilla also prevents inflammation of the kidneys, and other disorders of these organs. Mrs. Jas. AV. AVeld, Forest Hill st., Jamaica Plain, Mass., writes: “I have had a complica tion of diseases, but my greatest trouble has been with my kidneys. Four bottles of Ayer’s Sarsaparilla made me feel like a new person; as well and strong as ever.” W. M. McDonald, 46 Summer st., Boston, Mass., had been troubled for years with Kidney Complaint. By the use of Ayer’s Sarsaparilla, he not only Prevented the disease from assuming a fatal form, but was restored to perfect health. John McLellan, cor. Bridge and Third sts., Lowell, Mass., writes: “For several years I suffered from Dyspepsia and Kidney Complaint, the latter being so severe a‘c times that I could scarcely attend to my work. My appetite was poor, and I was much emaciated; but by using AYER’S Sarsaparilla my appetite and digestion improved, and my health has been perfectly restored.” Sold by all Druggists.

Washington, Oct. 24—Senator John Sherman was tonight tendered a serenade by his friends in this city. The Marine Band furnished music for the occasion and a large crowd listened to the speeches. Senator Sherman was introduced by lion. Benj. Butterworth and spoke for half an hour. The purity of the ballot was the principal theme of his discourse. He declared that every National election since 1868 had been tainted witli fraud and terrorism, and asserted that last year, by unlawful combination and fraud Grover Cleveland had been elected President of the United States, when if there had been a fair vote and a fair count James G. Blaine would have been elected. The speaker dwelt at some length on tlie recent elections in Ohio and charged the Democrats with perpetrating gross frauds against tlie purity of the ballot. He believed that Con gress should pass a wise election law to govern the election of members of Congress and Presi dential electors, and if such a measure failed to protect the negroes in their right of suffrage then the Republican party would take care that the Southern States were not allowed a representa tion based on their negro population. Troubles of the Telephone.

The Secretary of the Interior in turn has referred each to the Commissioner of Pa tents for his “report and opinion.” Mr. Mont gomery lias liot yet reported to the Secretary of the Interior but lias submitted to him a brief sum marv of each case. Secretary Lamar will order that inasmuch as bis advice, opinion and recom mendation are invited lie will ask all interested parties to appear before Him and the Commission er of Patents and answer to the following ques tions; 1st, Has the government a right to insti tute and maintain such suit for such purpose? 2d, If it has, do the facts as they shall be pre sented warrant or demand that such suit be brought? All the proceedings will be had pub liclv. Minor Matters. Commodore J. G. Walker has been recommis sioned as chief of the bureau of navigation, and Commodore Montgomery Sicarde as chief of the bureau of ordnance of the Navy Department. Governor-elect Foraker is in the city. MAXWELL IDENTIFIED. His Aged Father Confronts Him in His Cell. St. Louis, Oct. 24.—The mystery of tlie iden tity of Maxwell, the murderer of C. A Preller, is cleared at last. Tonight his father, Samuel N. Brooks of Hyde, Eng., called at the jail. When the old man saw Maxwell he cried out; “Hugh! Hugh! It is indeed you!” The prisoner rose, and, for the first time, seemed to lose control of him self. “It is, father, it is I,” said he. Then, im mediately controlling himself, he stopped and sat down on a chair. The father again addressed his son, and said: “Oh, Hugh, you had better be dead than here. Your mother's health is gone and tlie family ruined!” and sobbing fell into the arms of tlie guard. Maxwell sat in His chair looking an noyed, and, but for tlie first recognition of his father exhibited no emotion whatever. Mr. Brooks afterward said that he had no doubt what ever but that his son was insane. He said Hugh left home last January, ostensibly to go to Dublin, since which time the family had heard nothing of him.” CANADA’S FISCAL POLICY. A Deficit of Nearly $3,000,000 for the Year Ending June Last. Ottawa. Ont.. Oct. 24.—Those who had looked for a large deficit in the Dominion treasury, as a result ot the financial transactions during the fiscal year ending the 30th of June last, have had their expectations confirmed by the publication today of the official statement. The total revenue <111 < 1 i A|iniuiuui-B uuiiiiii, me jcai auun .1 ucncit of $2,357,470. The total revenue during the year was $32,970,000. or $1,101,000 more than last year, while the expenditures increased from $30, 445,000 to $35,327,000. It is evident that the national policy theory of Sir John Macdonald lias exploded, and that, in place of the large annual surplus lie promised, there will in the future be an annually increasing deficit as the result of his fiscal policy._ OHIO ELECTION. Cincinnati, 0., Oct. 24.—Wm. Dalton, county clerk, has issued certificates in relation to all county and legislative officers except Senators.

As there was no testimony produced, after waiting an hour for the witnesses, the case was dismissed. _ PRAIRIE FIRES. Great Destruction of Property In Texas. Fort Worth, Tex., Oct. 24.—Reports reached here last night from Clarendon, Danley county, and other points, of the most devastat ing prairie fires ever known there. It is be lieved that the number of acres burned over will approach 500,000. The country over which fires are raging extends from the Canadian river, one hundred miles south. It is impossible as yet to give any idea of individual losses. In some places the cowboys were obliged to ride into the lake to save themselves. Judge Brown of Clarendon was severely burned while endeavoring to save his summer crop of millet, which was destroyed. Ful ly one-fourtn of his grain was also destroyed. AMBUSHED BY MOONSHINERS. An United States Officer and His At tendant Killed in Georgia. Macon, Ga., Oct. 24.—A report reached here last night of the killing of William Wall. United States deputy marshal, and William Clements, near Lumber City, Friday morning. The party was looking for moonshiners, and were piloted by a negro, who was also shot, but not fatally. The assailants were ambushed. Particulars have not yet been received. Death of a Centenarian. Bridgeport, Conn., Oct. 25.—Bridget Farley died at her residence in West Stratford last night, aged 104. Deceased retained all her faculties almost to the last. A freight train on the Elmira, Cortland & North ern railroad jumped the track Saturday afternoon at Swortwoods, 15 miles from Binghampton, N. Y. Engineer Wm. Brown was instantly killed. Wm. Judd, a brakeman, was crushed beneath the wreck, and the fireman had his skull crushed and cannot recover. HANLAN HUMBLED. Teemer Easily Defeats the Toronto Sculler. And Is Now the Champion Oarsman of America. Hanlan Weakens and Capsizes His Boat. Titov, N. Y„ Oct 24.—The double scull race be tween John Teenier of McKeesport. Penn., aud Edward Hanlan of Toronto, was rowed this after noon over the Pleasure Island course, a mile and a half aud return. Hanlan’s defeat was glorious in the minds of a majority of the spectators, but in the opinion of his friends he was beaten by an ac cident. Tlie race was for the stakes of $2000 and the championship of America. The general im firession yesterday was than Hanlan would win, or it was thought that in the strong current and high water his science would out-do Teemer's strength. Ali of Courtney’s friends have pinned their faith to Teemer and backed him heavily. They are happy and wealthy to-night. At 3.30 o’clock 3000 people were on Pleasant Island; as many more were on excursion boats iu the river, and several thousands were strung aiong tlie Hudson Kivcr railroad track on the Cflst side. The officers of the race were as follows; Re feree, Janies Ormond of Boston; official time keeper, Timothy Donogliue of Newburg; judge at the start and finish for Hanlan, Fred Plaisted; judge at the start and finish for Teemer, Wallace Ross; judge at the turn for Hanlan, Daniel Breen of Boston ; Judge at the turn for Teemer, J. R. ^ PoSs'^old on the island showed Hanlan the favorite at $100 to $70. The betting was unusual ly brisk, more money changing hands than hi both of the recent double-scull races. Teemer, when weighed in his club-house, tipped the beam at 159 and Hanlan at ICO. Both rowed hi cedar shells made by Huddick of Boston. Teemer’s boat was thirty one feet six inches long, six inches deep and weighed twenty-nine pounds; Hanlan’s boat was thirty-one feet nine Inches in length, ten and one-half 'inches wide and weighed twenty-seven pounds. Haitian's boat was perfectly new. never having been used before. Teemer's boat had seen some service, but had never before been used by him. . At 4.20 o’clock Hanlan launched his boat, and amid the cheers of the thousands of spectators rowed down to the starting point. Teemer quick ly followed. Hanlan wore a red and white striped shirt aud blue trunks. He wore no cap, while Teenier had on a dark cap, blue and white shirt and navy blue trunks. At 4.67 the referee cautioned the oarsmen. Teenier had taken the inside position. Almost immediately afterwards the word was given. Teenier caught the water first, and started away with a rush, pulling a long, steady stroke of 34 to the minute. .Hanlan in the middle of the river with the powerful current to contend with, bent to his work as lie never had done in a race in this country before. He pulled thirty-eight strokes a minutes, and for a mile managed to keep oil even terms with Teemer. The latter seemed nervous anti excited ueiorc me start, out mi™ ” the boat he appeared to have forgotten his fright, and rowed like a man confident of winning. The pace that Hanlan had set was telling on him more than it ditl on Teemer, for he began to row unsteady, and at the three-quarter mile post Teemer began to draw away from him by the foot, so that when the men passed the mile point Teenier had the lead and elear water. Teemer turned the tables on Hanlan, and he now began to spurt. “Come on,” he called out, hut Hanlan could not, and from tliis point Teemer drew away from Hanlan, and was leaving him at every stroke. Hanlan fought desperately, and tried again and again to make up the lost ground, rowing 38 strokes to the (minute, but Teenier was too much for him; he hail more speed and better staying (lowers, aud as the men reached the upper stake Teenier was leading by four lengths, and had tile race well in hand. Teemer was around and straightened out for home, when Haitian, 15 seconds behind, made for his buoy. He rushed at it like a man bewildered and ran into the boat in which sat his judge at the turn, Daniel Breen. One side of the washboard of his shell cracked like a peanut shell, the boat swerved, and, point ing down stream, began to fill. Hanlan took a stroke or two and then keeled over into the water. He was helped into a skiff. His boat was hailed out and he started for home. He was a beaten man, however, and the judge who was in Teemer’s boat at the upper stake, says he was rowed out when he got there, and that he was “dead” and could not go on. Teemer reached his stakeboat at llm. 35%s. which is remarkable time against such a current. Hanlan reached his 11 seconds later, so that it is easily seen that Teenier had him beaten. Teemer, seeing what bail happened, let up and rowed leisurely home. On lus way he reoeived quite an ovation. He paid Hanlan in his kind, stopped, threw kisses, gagged, coughed, took off lus hat, and did to Hanlan what the latter has been doing to others in all his races. Teemer said he would not make fun of any oarsman except Hanlan. ,, , . Teemer. after finishing the race, rowed back to Ills quarters, aud the people were greatly excited over him. (treat crowds collected around Ills quarters, anil lie was called ou for a speech. He did not want to make one, but the crowd insisted that lie must say something, so he climbed up on the top of liisquarters and said: “Gentlemen: I think f rmved tu win this race, and shall always do so.” He then jumped down, and cheer after cheer was given him. . , , , , ,. Hanlan feels badly over his defeat, and his friends say that he cried when he got out of his boat and was greatly broken up. Hanlan backed himself, and says Teemer beat him fairly. It is usually the custom to shake hands with each other after a race. Mr. Volk, Teemer's backer, tried to have John shake hands with Hanlan, hut the McKeesport lad would not do it. Teenier is happy. He lias beaten Hanlan in a square, level up race, and Is entitled to great credit. He leaves for home iu a few days, and will visit Boston In about six weeks. He, with Boss, will row any two men ill the world a doublc seull race for $2600 a side. Hanlan returned to Albany tills evening. He make's uo complaint, but says “I will acknowledge that Teemer beat me.” He goes to Worcester Monday and will be at the Hosmer-Laing race pn Tuesday next. After that ho will go home for the WTcenior is now the champion, and llaulan will liave to accept Ills terms should they race again. Teemer rowed the course in 21m. 12s. Had be been pushed on the way home he could have hofltpii t lit* rfi’ord. Because Wallace Boss, Teemer’s trainer is Han lau’s brother-in-law, people are saying tonight that the race was a put-up lob, but Teemer’s friends insist that Hanlan and Boss have been enemies for years and that the race was square. Teemer is the lion of ibe hour, and already plans are on foot to arrange a race between linn and Beach. _ A CHINESE PUZZLE. The Canadian and United States Gov ernments Both Outwitted. Ottawa, Oct. 24. It is hut a few days since the attention of the Secretary of State at Wash ington was called to the large number ofCbinamen wlio were smuggling themselves into the United States from British Columbia, while the Canadian authorities refused to allow them to laud when they returned to Canada until a fee of $50 was paid on each one. The tables have now been turned against the Dominion, as it has been rep resented to the government here that a number of the Chinamen who were lately driven out of Seattle. W. T., where five of their countrymen were killed, have smuggled themselves across the border into the northwest territories and located themselves at Brandon, where they propose going into business. The residents of Brandon are anx ious to get rid of them. The same rule that was applied in ease of British Columbia Chinamen who went to the United States applies in this case to their being returned from where they came. They have entered the Dominion without paying the license, and cannot pay It. What the govern ments will do in the matter remains to be seen. The necessity of some understanding with the United States government in regard to such cases, where Chinamen who have entered either country from the other in violation of existing laws, is made apparent. _ THE DOMINION. The Culf Fisheries a Failure. Quebec, Oct. 25.—The government steamer she has heen distributing supplies to the various stations. She reports the fisheries in the Gulf a failure. There has been a succession of heavy gales which prevented fishermen from leaving the shore to follow their labors. S®3Q3A Horrible Confession. I’iiiudelthia, Oct. 24.—A special from Sta ruccara., says that John Howell, who yesterday murdered his four children, then shot and probab ly fatally injured himself, recovered consciousness this morning and confessed to the killing of iris children. Howell was an industrious man, but sickness during the past year has affected his mind considerably. He says yesterday his wife and daughter drove to the village store, and as soon as they were out of sight fie set about his murderous work. He Induced his four children, whose ages ranged from 3 to 12, to take arsenic and when they fiad fallen in a stupor, he succes sively placed a pistol close to the forehead of each and drove a bullet into their brain. Howell then seated himself with a cocked revolver in his hand, to await the coming of his wife and daughter, in tending to add them to his victims. After waiting, and they not returning, he shot himself twice and fell unconscious beside his mur dered children, where he was found by his wife and daughter upon their return shortly after. No one holds the wreched man responsible, as his in sanity is generally conceded. It Is thought he cannot recover. _ Hon. George W. Foster of Andover Killed by a Train.

Eigllty-four new cases are officially reported, and two hundred and eighty-five are under treatment in tire hospitals. The health authorities are meet ing with great success in getting patients to the hospital. Home dreadful nests of the disease in tenement houses have been discovered, where whole families of children, from infants to those of fifteen years of age, were ill. Fifteen persons, mostly children ,-ana one dead child, were taken from two rooms on the fifth flat of a great grocery warehouse on Notre Dame street yesterday. The sickness had been concealed from the owners of the building by the heads of the families employed in the establishment, and the actual state of affairs was only discovered by the city medical vaccina tor visiting the place and forcing his way In with the aid of the sanitary police. No attempts at vio lence, so far, has been made on the health offi cials, but upon removing the sick, the large crowds that collect use threatening language to the medical superintendents and their assistants alike. If it were not for the imposing force em ployed, all efforts of the authorities would be fu tile. As far as returns are in this evening, they show a decrease in mortality of eight this week as compared with the previous week.

The rector and professors of the college deny that any deaths have occurred In it. The disease lias broken out in an orphan school on Sherbrook street, conducted by the Sisters of Providence. Montreal, Oct. 25.—The authorities are meet ing with considerable opposition in the work of isolating smallpox patients.

The Marquis of Larne Mobbed While Making a Speech. He Runs Away and His Followers are Put to Flight. A Skirmish Reported Between Bul garian and Servian Pickets. Three Thousand Quarrymen Locked Out in Wales. The Burmese Government Preparing to Resist an English Advance. London, Oct. 24.—It is now evident that the parliamentary campaign will not pass off without serious rioting in many quarters, as party feeling, which already runs high, daily grows more bitter. The Marquis of Lome, the Liberal candidate for Hampstead, went down to Brentford, a town seven miles west of London, to deliver a campaign speech. While addressing the electors a mob as saulted him with rotten eggs, and some of them, gaining the platform, smashed his hat over his head. The supporters of the Marquis rushed to his rescue and a light ensued. The noble lord now became so thoroughly frightened that he hastily departed from the scene, ran through the streets in a drenching rain to the railway station and im mediately departed for London. Meanwhile the row continued, the supporters of the Marquis be ing severely handled, and becoming discouraged at their desertion by their champion they finally retreated, leaving their contestants masters of the field. The latter then seized the platform and passed a resolution condemning the policy or the y J When the Queen’s son-in-law made his appear ance as the Liberal candidate for Hampstead it occasioned considerable surprise,and when he put forward in his address advanced radical opinions the surprise was greatly increased. He adopted Mr. Chamberlain’s programme of free education and advocated immediate disestablishment in Scotland. He championed the principles of the Free Land League, and with a view to the en couragement of the subdivision of land, suggested that sales of large estates en bloc should be sub ject to heavy taxation, while sales of land to be divided into smaller lots should be left duty free. As to the House of Lords, he hardly went so far as the Hampstead Radicals desired, being of the opinion that the venerable institution might be amended by the infusion of elected members. He favored the extension of local self-government to Ireland. London, Oct. 25.—The Economist commenting upon the unstable equilibrinim of the Liberal party, savs the Liberals will doubtless win in the coming elections, but that their victory will be temporary and provisional, and will not outlast Gladstone's political life. The Radicals, says the Economist, are mistaken in assuming too confi dently that the future belongs to Chamberlain. Claptraps, like curses, come home to roost. Chamberlain has raised hopes among the ignorant classes that are doomed to disappointment when the awakening day comes, and Chamberlain will find it more difficult to induce the people to trust him the second time. The Balkan Difficulty. LONDON.Oct. 24.—It is tonight stated unequivo cally that the representative of England to the Balkan conference In Constantinople has been in structed by bis government to make a motion in the conference in favor of maintaining the union of Bulgaria and Roumelia effected under Frince Alexander, and it is further declared that the rep resentatives of France and Italy have also been instructed by their governments to support En gland’s motion. If this motion be made the con ference will be divided, Germany, Austria and Russia arrayed against England, France and Italy. It is not worth while to conjecture how Turkey, the power chiefly concerned, will stand. Her attitude will probably be decided by force, such relations with the Porte as to compel it eventually to side against Russia, and that if un accomplished the difficulty would seem to be settled.

Financial Matters in England. £ondon, Oct. 26.—The low rate of discount fails to attract borrowers, who in consequence of the uncertainty of the future of politics, trade and finance, which still weakens public, confidence, see no prospect of employing money at an lmme dlate or prospective profit.

England’s Trouble with Burmah. Madrid, Oct. 24,-Tlie contingents of the Indian army from Madras and Calcutta are being rapidly transported to Rangoon, where the expe ditionary force is being assembled lor the invasion of Burmah.

Kyuyyung Atwin Wood has been appointed to the command of the forces on the frontier, and lie has been ordered to prevent the passage of tile British at all cost.
