"I commend to the gentleman from Massachusetts another plank In tbo Re publican platform, against, which I also uttered Do protest, that he mnj see all around this mat ter of abandoning tho platform, and know all the delinquents." Gen, Grosvenor then read, amid applause, tbo declaration thut the Unltod States should inter vene with its good olllces to tho cud that Cuba might secure us Independence. To this Mr. llarrctt responded that as bo un derstood It the President was carrying out that plank In the light of present conditions. "In other words, retorted Mr Grosvenor, "conditions havochangcri, and thePresldent has changed.

Ate" Clrenlar Now Used to Dawn Bngel. Tho elaborate pamphlet dovoted to the life and deeds of Martin Enrol, tho present Tam many Hall leader In the Eighth Assembly dis trict, which was prepared nnd circulated by Norbeth Plotter, an cast eldo politician, Just before election, brought its author Into court yesterday on a charge ot criminal libel. Not In I yeara has "de ato" been so stirred up ns It was when Pfeffer'B clroulor was distributed through tho district. It was the first tlmo tn many a day that anybody had dared to arraign Engol and oponly defy him to contradict tho charges mado against him. Kn sol's candidate for tho Assembly, rhll Wis slg.Jwas defeated by tho Republic an candidate, Chariot Adlcr, at tho Inst election, nnd Engel, who ran for Councilman, wns also boat en. Whether It wns tho circular that did It Is n matter of opinion. Engcl's enemies sny that It was. His friends, however, attribute their defeat to tho tact that Engol let tho clrculnr go unanswered. It Is a fact Hint Ingol did nnt deny any ot tho allegations contained In tbo circular, and didn't tako nny action against PfcfTor nround eloctlon tlmo. Tho pamphlot In question; was addressed to tbe "Citizens of. tho First Council District." In it Engel was accusod ot almost ovcry crlmo on the criminal calendar, particular ttrcs being laid on tho chargos that ho rented out houses for immoral purposes, and Hint during tho Loxow Investigation he actod as a spy lor tho Parkhurst society. In big black letters at tho bottom of tbo circular was, "Issued by Norbotb. PfefTcr. SO Htanton streot," nnd at tho top In similar typo, "Notice I challenge contradic tion." Several thousands of these circulars wero scattered around tho district during tho cam paign. Pfcffcr used to stand on street corners and glvo them to passcrshy, and ho nlwn) s kept a big Bitpply of them on tho bur In his saloon at 5D Stanton Btrcot. PfefTcr Is a Republican. Ho was formerly a dctoctlvo for tho Park hurst Society, but rcslgnod to open a Fnloon. Ho has been prominent In nil of the political squabbles In "do nte," nnd li unaltcruhl) op posed to Engel In over) thing. Tho action taken against PfefTcr by Kngol at this time has been prnctlc.ill) forced on tho lattor. Ho has not onl) had to light tho Ro puhllcnns In tbo district, but has also hud a actional light on his hands.

A course of two or three weeks of rtm Kutnow's lmpioved Effervescent Powder will be found In most ctses requisite to so regulate jJB the excretory functions tint tltey reacquire the natunl lnbit of acting without artificial stimuli- S?U tion. Tlius Is constipation relieved without any injurious action of any kind, because both the wW stomach and liver functions are at the same time lubricated, as it were, and greatly benefited. 1 The experience of medical men and patients warrants us in sttttng that Kutnow's Improved lfii Effervescent Powder is a natural, healthful remedy in constipation, acting promptly and practi- huU cally as Nature herself does. Where a deeply rooted habit of constipation lias been acquired l?jH by a patient, to the certain injury of the heiltli and enjoyment, it will be speedily discovered 1lH how great are the advantages following the use of Kutnow's Powder. $B 1)11.
