Hidden’s Magnetic Compound is stead ily winning its way in the favor of the medical fraternity, and with good reason. It is a clean, pure, honest medicine. It is a strictly vegetable preparation, is made on honor, is perfectly reliable, and can always be depended upon. Prominent physicians have thoroughly tested this Compound both in and out of the sick room, and always with the same result. They speak in terms of praise of this new, safe, palatable and effective remedy, and freely prescribe it. HIDDEN’S MAGNETIC COMPOUND Has been given a trial at the Suffolk Dis Fensaey, one of Boston’s worthy medical institutions, and of this trial we are told that: “While, as a rule, the institution uses only the regular remedies and products long known and fully tested by the pro fession, nevertheless most excellent results have thus far been obtained from the use of our valuable preparation, and we are assured that there is little doubt but con tinued use wiil still further demonstrate its potency in the chronic cases for which as a remedial agent it is so well adapted.’) This is high praise, but it is in keeping with the splendid victories which are being achieved daily by HIDDEN’S MAGNETIC COMPOUND Among the sick, the aged and the infirm. Tills medicine positively cures nervous dis eases, paralysis, rheumatism, neuralgia, female weakness, all diseases of the blood, liver and kidneys, heart disease, and stomach troubles of every name and nature. If you are sick or ailing, it is your duty to give Hidden’s Magnetic Compound a trial. Druggists sell it. Price, $1. It is the Coming Medicine.

ACROSS THE OCEAN. Royalists Implicated in the Panama Scandal. THERE APPEARS TO BE NO EVI DENCE AGAINST PRESI DENT CARNOT. The Fight Against the President a Wom en's Battle—Pope Leo Favors Mainten ance of the Republic—Royalists Bose Confidence. Pams, January 14.—There is profound relief in republican circles today over the statement of Charles de Lesseps impli cating Arthur Meya, editor of Le Gau lois, as having received 100,000 francs from the Panama Company. This at last brought the royalists into the drag net. and shows what friends of the republic have claimed from the beginning of the scandal—that republican officials and journalists did not have a monopoly of the Panama corruption. The fact that four Boulangist deputies are said to be put under strong suspicion by evidence before M. Franqueville is al so considered as strengthening the cause of the republic by showing the hypocrisy of those who assail it in the pretended interest of better government. The government has also been consid erably strengthened by the speech of Chancellor Van Caprivi on the army bill in Germany. This has, in a large degree, diverted attention from the Panama affairs and aroused a deeper interest in the foreign concerns of France, in the necessity of Frenchmen standing together against their enemies abroad. Ex-Minister of Commerce Jules Roche is said to be vindicated from the cha ge that he had shared in the Panama bribery. Figaro’s attempt to arouse public feel ing against Carnot has fallen flat, and men who vehemently denounced the president yesterday are comparatively moderate today. It is generally believed that the worst is known regarding Pana ma, and that no developments adverse to C rnot are possible. The discredit thrown on the Ga lois has aided greatly in relieving M. Carnot. It will be re membered that the staff of that paper was active in endeavoring, before the Panama Commission of the Chamber, to connect M. Carnot’s name with the Pan ama corruption, but when cornered had declined, on alleged professional grounds, to give authority for statements made. Gallic Gall. Four hundred holders of bonds and Shares in the Panama Canal met today and passed resolutions in favor of a re organization of the company on a purely commercial basis. A suggestion that ap peal be made to American capitalists in the interest of the enterprise was ap proved unanimously. The meeting re solved to form an executive committee with 25,000,000 francs capital and appeal for state aid. Count Keratry was ap pointed delegate to Washington to open neg tiations with the United States gov ernment. Another delegation will be formed to treat with the Columbian gov ernment. Campaign Against the Newspapers. The government has begun a cam paign against foreign newspaper corres pondents in Paris. Today despatches from Berlin, Budapest and London an nounced tlie insinuations of Cocarde transformed by Paris correspondents of newspapers in those cities into open sug gestions that either Baron Morenlieim or Count Menabrea, formerly Italian am bassador, was influenced in favor of the Pan rna Canal company by the bribe of 500,000 francs. Herr Wedell, corre spondent for several dailies, was notified that he must leave the country. M. Seliche, correspondent Pesth-Hirlay, was arrested for telegraphing the report in question to Budapest. Several other correspondents are notified that they will be expelled from France for llic DUIUC uuvuoo. London Comment on the Situation. London, January 14,—The Paris cor respondent of the Times says: “Some Panama shareholders have called a meet ing for Sunday to consider the obtaining of a renewal of the concession and re sumption of work.” The News corres pondent suggests that the campaign of slander against President Carnot has been instituted by women who have beed discouraged socially in consequence of the exclusiveness of Mine Carnot’s recep t’ons. The Paris correspondent of the Times further writes: “The Pope’s letter to Count Albert de Mun contains only a veiled reference to the Panama scandals. It calls upon all Frenchmen to put pri vate interests and political discussions aside in common defence of the estab lished form of government as the only means of religious peace and civil har mony.” BRIEFLY TOLD. Business is about suspended in Indi ana by blizzards and snow blockades. The slaughter houses of the Meridan, Conn., provision company, were burned yesterday. Loss $20,000. The town hall, post office, newspaper office and stores in those buildings were burned at Brewster, N. Y., yesterday. Loss $100,000. Frank Viking of Georgetown, Mass., a prominent citizen and Sunday school su perintendent, is under arrest, charged with deceit and forgery. Russia will send three war ships to New York to take part in the naval de monstration in connection with the Co lumbus fetes. “Dr.” C. J. Eastman, arrested in Boston on a charge of causing the death of Annie Sweet of Haverhill, by malprac tice, was arraigned Saturday and held in $10,000 for a hearing January 20. A despatch from Panama says the Con gress of the United States of Columbia has approved the bill giving an extension of tl me for the construction of the Pana ma cannl. Senator Stamford of California states that the report that he was to resign from the Seuate is untrue. He says his health is good and he does not consider he would be doing justice to his party or the country by resigning. A terrific explosion in the coliiery at Gelsenkirchn, Germany, Saturday, was caused by dynamite cartridges, alleged to have been secreted in the mine by the strikers, Though many men were at work at the time it so happened that none of them was in the vicinity of the explosion. Therefore nobody was killed, but a number were stunned by the concussion. A despatch from St. Paul de Loanda says a train crowded with Europeans and natives halted on tho Congo railway near Matandi recently. The eugine was detached to join a wagon loaded with 54 boxes of dynamite and 82 casks of gun powder. The engine moved down the track with great speed and collided with the wagon, exploding the dynamite. Fif ty persons were killed. MUNICIPAL POLITICS. Candidates for Mayor Down in Rockland. [Special to the Press.] Rockland, January 14—After innu merable interviews with prominent Re publicans who ought to know, and pro phetic Democrats who think they do. your corre^ ’ent is of the firm belief that Dr. P i 3. Miller will be Rock j[auu a in. Edward. 13. filer, who has held this honor so successfully the past three years, will soon retire from public ser vice, and it is well that the important work begun during his administration should be carried on. With a five years’ experience in the city goverment, two as a member of the common council and three in the board of aldermen, Mr. Mil ler, who is at present president of the upper board, is just the man into whose hands the reins should fall. Last year, in response to a largely signed petition of the leading Republicans, Mayor Butler consented to a renomination, and Mr. Miller, who might otherwise have been a candidate, stood politely aside. Now, the eternal fitness of things seems to sug gest that a candidate so thoroughly ca pable, shopld be given party usage. And it is only just to say th t Mr. Miller al ready has the endorsement of a large percentage of the leading Republicans. The Press correspondent is also given to understand that Colonel F. C. Knight will be in the field again this year. The colonel is justly popular and would poll a strong vote in the caucus, but it is somewhat doubtful if he would consent to arousing a factional feeling in the party. \ The Democratic party, recognizing the futility of past efforts, have about decid ed not to pla tenpins this year, but to shift the responsibility of defeat on* a citizens ticket, which is all the same thing. Last year this same citizens scheme was agitated, but Captain W. P. Hurley, having a little axe of his own to grind, ermitted his name to head the Democratic ticket. His nati e populari ty did give him a good showing and was doubtless quite a boom to his collector ship aspirations. But with the possible exception that some shrewd, cool headed Democrat like Samuel A. Keys may be nominated there is every reason tos,think that the citizens ticket will go, and that the per son chosen to head it will be none other than David H. Ingraham, better known as the “unanimous alderman from Ward 6.” David has had mayoralty aspira tions some little time, but has never quite seen his way c early as yet. The citizens ticket may prove his Mecoa. The next Republican board of Aldermen will stand something like this: Ward 1, Ephraim Perry will be re-elected; Ward 2, A. P. St. Clair will be re-elected; Ward 4, Stephen Chase will succeed K. B. Mil ler; Ward 5, H. M. Lord will succeed E. W. Berry; Ward 6, Israel Snow, Jr., will succeed D. H. Ingraham; Ward 7, Chas. L. Smith will be re-elected. In Ward 3 a contest is expected. The present in cumbent accepted the position under cir cumstances that a great many would have not, and in addition is not over pop ular with his party. COLD UNBEARABLE. The Most Severe Weather the West Has Known for Years. Chicago, January 15.—The cold spell the past few days is the severest experi enced in several years, and is general throughout the West. At 10 o’clock this morning, the thermometer regist red 18° below zero. The temperatu e has since slightly moderated. The railroads are the chief sufferers. Nearly all passen ger trains are from one to 24 hours late. Ihe mail service is badly demoralized in some sections, and freight traffic entirely abandoned. The cold weather has filled the lake with ice and made life almost unbearable at the water works cribs. BOTTOM DROPPED OUT The Great Comstock Lode Produces No Ore. San Francisco, January 14.—D. O. Mills has given orders for the suspension of the Virginia City Territorial Enter prise, the oldest newspaper in Nevada and for years the organ of the bonanza millionaires. Its suspension indicates that the bottom has really dropped out of the great Comstock lode, which has been run wholly as an assessment scheme, the manipulations of which mulcted mil lions from the people of California and Nevada every year on mines which are producing no ore. Heavy Storm in England. London, January 15.—A heavy storm is sweeping over England, snow, sleet and high wind prevail along the coast and many small accidents to shipping are reported. The steamer Brighton, be longing to the Brigh on railway company, plying between New Haven and Dieppe, this morning crushed into the pier at Dieppe. The storm was so blinding the pilot could not see beyond her bow. A large hole was stove in the bow. Half the baggage was got off when the vessel went under. No one lost. O > Dartmouth five pilots were drowned while trying to put a man aboard the cuiter, Sunday School Burned Out. Hartfoki* January 15.—The Method ist church was burned early tills after noon. Sunday school was being hold in the basement. There was no difficulty in escaping. The structure was of wood and valued with contents at $5,000 to $10 TX)0; insurance $5,000 on the building. «» SHADOW OF ROME. A Permanent Apostolic Delegate Here after Here. THE POWERS ENTRUSTED TO MON SIGNOR SAT01LI ENLARGED. The Italian Prelate No Longer a Mere Ablegate —His Promotion Means Peace, Says Archbishop Ireland—Permanent Organization of the Church in Aineri* ca—Official Statement as to Dr. Mc Glynn, Washington, January 14.—A cable message has been received hv Mgr. Sa tolli, as follows: Some, January 14. The apostolic delegation is permanently es" tablislied In the United States, and you are confirmed as the first delegate. [Signed], O’Connell. The importance of this message, pro ceeding as it does from the American secretary of the propaganda, will he readily appreciated. Inquiries at the Catholic University here, where Mgr. Satolli r sides, fully confirm the authenticity of the news. Rome, January 14.—Pope Leo is pre paring an encyclical to the American Episcopate, apropos to the ecclesiastical differences existing there, and advising harmony and union. Archbishop Ireland Pleased. St. Paul, Minn., January 14.—Arch bishop Ireland was shown a copy of the Rome cablegram announcing the appoint ment of Mgr. Satolli to be permanent pa pal delegate to the United States, aud said : “I received a cablegram from Rome to that effect myself this morning. Rooker will be secretary of the delegation. “I am heartily glad that this action has been taken. The powers of an apos tolic delegation, under the church law, are broad and well defined. “We have now an apostolic delegate. Heretofore Mgr. Satolli’s title has been ablegate, which denotes a position rather temporary and undefined. It has beeu the intention of the Pope for some time to take this action, but the opposition shown to Mgr. Satolli in certain quarters has hastened this decision. “This is a complete answer to those who opposed Mgr. Satolli’s authority. The establishment of a delegation here will have a most beneficial result on the church in America. It will maintain peace aud harmony, and facilitate the settlement of controversies among Cath olics, which heretofore had to be referred to Rome. “It praotically organizes in perfect form, the Catholic church in America, instituting, as it were, for more import ant church affairs, home rule. We will have at home a branch of the supreme ecclesiastical court. A further result will be that the immediate workings and thoughts of the H ly See will ..e brought more prominently before the American people, who, from observation, will see that the Catholic church in its highest action is thoroughly in harmony with the principles of our democracy and all that is good, useful and elevating in modern progress.” Case of Dr. McGlynn. Washington, January 14—Archbishop Satolli, permanent apostolic delegate in the United S ates, authorizes the publica tion of astatement in regard to the Pope’s action in the case of Dr. McGlynn. After giving reasons for not making the facts public before this time, the statement says: “Dr. McGlynn had presented a brief statement of his opinions on moral econ omic matters, aud it was judged not con trary to the doctrine constantly taught by the church and as recently confirmed by the holy fa her in the encyclical rerum novarum. “Also, it is hereby publicly made known that Dr. McGlynn, besides professing his orlli nvonon tn oil Hi A rlnntvinPR fl.Tlfl t.fifl.P.Vl ings of the Catholic church, has expressed his regret (saying that he would be the first to regret it) for any word or act of his that may ha»e seemed lacking in the respect due to ecclesiastical authority; and he, therefore, intends to repay, as far as he can, any offence which may have been given to the Catholics. “Finally, Dr. McGlynn has, of his own free will, declared and promised that, within the limits of a not long period of time, he will go to Rome in the spirit and intention which are becoming to a good Catholic and a priest. “Here it is well to note how deplorable it is that this reconciliation should have been discussed as it has been in newspa pers in such manner that private and lay persons have dared to pass upon it harsh reproach and ill considered censure. “That any one should have dared to speak of the Pope’s authority over the church in America as foreign is a senti ment and an utterance enormously erron eous and scandalous. The action of the Church and of the Holy See in the things that belong to it is superior to ev ery man-made boundary, universal and proper to every country in which there may b>- Catholics. For which reason it seems to us exceedingly opportune to recommend due respect in every case to ecclesiastical authority, and, before all, to that of the Holy See as well as to that of the council of Baltimore, inas much as it is forbidden to treat eccle siastical matters and questions through the medium of journalism. “Much more deplorable is it that per sons, both ecclesiastics and laymen (who wish to appear as sincerely Catholic), make bad use of journalism, with vio lent and mendacious attacks, beyond all bounds of respect and charity, against venerable prelates, whose virtue and learning, whose rectitude of character and unquestioned and unquestionable love toward the church and the supreme pontiff, never unaeoompauied by sincere love of country, make them deservedly the objects of the special predilection of the Holy Father and of universal esteem and Veneration.’ A Burning Vessel. Bbidgepoist, Conn., January 15.—A big blaze occurred on t he sound off this harbor this evening. It lasted two hours. By aid of night glasses it was determined thatit was atwo or three-masted schooner about 10 miles off shore. The lighthouse keeper started for the scene in a small boat, but before he reached the spot the flames died out. He found empty oil barrels floating around, but no trace of the crew. The wind was in such direc tion that if the crew esoaped they would probably land on Long Island. The bridge tender says through the night glass he saw a schooner pass near the burning vessel when the flames were at their height. ABOUT THE SAME Is the Latest Report From Mr. Blaine’s Bedside. Washington, January 15.—The re turn of Sunday was looked for with some apprehension in connection with the illness of Mr. Blaine, for the severe relapses he has recently experienced have ocourred that day. There was no development today other than favorable. When Dr. Johnson left the house this ev ening he said he should not return to night unless especially summoned. The first callers of the day were Sena tor Hale and wife, who came about 10.80 and remained half an hour. While they were in the house Drs. Hyatt and Johns ton arrived to make the morning visit. Senator Hale told a reporter that Mr. Blaine passed the most comfortable night he had experienced for many days. At 11 the physicians appeared and hand ed the following statement to he re porters: “Mr. Blaine is as strong and well as yesterday.” Dr. Hyatt stated the condition of the patient was such he would not repeat his visit unless called for. The wind is keen and cold, and as a result callers at the house today have been fewer than usual. James G. Blaine, Jr., with a friend and Miss Hattie, went for a brief walk in the course of the afternoon. At 5 o’clock in quiry at the door elicited the response that M. Blaine rested comf rtably during tuc ua,y, ataucmuuu nuiuu iuc auocuuc v* the doctors confirmed. At 5.50 Dr. Johnston drove up and remained until 6.25. As he left the house he s ated his patient passed a quiet, restful and un eventful day. There had been no appre ciable change in his condition during the day, and none was expected during tho night. Dr. Johnston stated to all ap pearance Mr. Blaine had not lost any strength since the attack last Thursday. On the whole he regarded his condition tonight as favorable as <Tould be expected. At midnight all was quiet in the vicin ity of the Blaine mansion. All signs pointed to a continuance of the favorable condition of affairs. The family have evidently retired. At 2 a. m there was no change. GENERAL RUFUS INGALLS. The Accomplished Soldier Dead at the Age of 73. New York, January 15.—General Ru fus Ingalls, U. S. A., retired, died here today, in the Grand Hotel. General In. galls was retired July 1, 1833. He was then quartermaster general. [Rufus Ingalls was born in Denmark, in this state, August 23, 1820. He was graduated at the United States Military Academy at West Point, in 1843, and joined the rifle corps, but was transfer r d to the 1st dragoons in 1845. He was in the battles of Embudo and Taos, New Mexico, in 1S47, and was made assistant quartermaster, with the rank of captain, January 12, 1848. He then served in California and Oregon, was in Colonel Edward J. Steptoe’s expedition across the continent, and from 1856 to 1860 was stationed at Fort Vancouver, being on the staff of General Harney at the time of the San Juan affair. In April, 1861, he was sent to reinforce Fort Pickens, and in July was ordered to duty with the Army of the Potomac. He was appointed aide-de-camp to General McClellan, with the rank of lieutenant colonel, on Septem er 28; major in the quartermaster’s department, January 12, 1862, and was chief quartermaster in the Army of the Potomac from 1862 to 1865. He became brigadier general of volun teers May 23,1863, and colonel and as sistant quartermaster general, July 29, 1866. He was present at the battles of South Mountain, Antietaiii, Freder icksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysb urg end the subsequent battles till the sur render of Lee. He received the brevet of brigadier general in the regular army in 1866 and that of major general for meritorious ser vices during the war, March 13, 1865; was mustered out of the volunteer ser vice September 1,1866, and was stationed as chief quartermaster at New York city from April, 1867, to July 31, 1876. t He was re-assigned to J>ew i UliV Uioy .icuou X, xwi, and relieved March 14, 1882, to become Quartermaster General of the army. Gen. Ingalls was retired from the service at his own request, July 1, 1883. CHARTER ISSUED. Incorporation of the New England Navi gation Company. Boston! January 14.—A charter was issued today authorizing the incorporar tion of the New England Navigation Co., by several gentlemen for the express purpose of building a fleet of large coast ing vessels to ply along the coast, their charter giving them leeway from East port, Mo., to the Gulf. The capital stock is $25,000. John E. Bn tier in Trouble. Boston, January 14.—The Boston Bar Association has filed a petition with the clerk of the Superior Court, asking that John E. Butler, a member of the bar, be disbarred on account of certain alleged misdoings. Butler’s whereabouts are unknown, as be disappeared from the city while criminal charges were pending against him. Another Measure Relating to Rail road Fares. BOARD OF HEALTH BILL BASED ON WISCONSIN LAW. Kittery Point People "Wish to Avoid Toll Bridges—The Immediate Beason for the New Health Bill—Sonls of Staff Officers Made Happy. [Special to the Press.] Augusta, Janury 15.—One measure relating to railroad lares is before the legislature and another is ooming. A bill was introduced by Mr. Littlefield of Poland the other day, providing that the roads of the state shoold Issue mileage tickets good for 1000 miles of travel at two cents a mile and be acoepted on any road in the state except such lines as the railroad commissioners might exempt. This proposed law is similar to one re cently passed in Massachusetts and which the roads of that state have brought before the courte, claiming that it is unconstitutional. In practical op eration, such a law would mean, of course, that a man who purchased such a ticket of the Maine Central, for In stance, oould travel on it anywhere in Maine, the conductors on the different roads over which the passengers passed, tearing a number of stabs from the mile age book to correspond with the num ber of miles travelled. The stub held by the other roads would be redeemed by the Maine Central, and the other lin's would, of course, pay the Maine Pantral fnr novtions of their tickets held by it. The right to exempt roads from the operat on of the bill accorded to the railroad commissioners is evidently in tended for the relief of small roads which could not afford to make a two cent rate. It is not now apparent how strong a sentiment there is in favor of this bill, but it is safe to say it will encounter vigorous opposition. The ii easure relating to railroad fares, which will, it is said, soon make its ap pearance, concerns only one road. It is the case of the York Harbor & Beach line which has been in legislative halls before. This road, while a distinct cor poration, is a branch of the boston & Maine, and runs from K ttery to York Beach. The people of Kittery Point sff that its charges for hauling passen gers are excessive, being at the rate of 10 cents a mile for through travel a. d six cents for local traffic. The Kittery Point people who, like all the inhabitants of that section of southern Maine natu rally do their trading in the city of Ports mouth, N. H. They might save railroad fares by driving the short distance to the neighboring city, but on the way there , are two toll bridges, one between Kittery and Kittery point, and the other between Kittery and Portsmouth. The case of the Kittery Point people, as expressed by a gentleman from that town the - titer day, is this: “Kittery Point people are charged 50 cents in railroad fares or 50 cents in tolls fo get four miles to market with a bushel of potatoes, and ar« com ing to the legislature for relief,” They will attempt to have the railroad fares lowered and the toll bridges abojiahed.
