GRIP'S ARMY OF VICTIMS OXE-SIXTH OF THE NEW YORKERS Re«t Will Get It, Says Dr. Kdsun- Eyldemiu More Deadly Than Ever Before. New York, Jan. 16.—Dr. Cyrus Edison says of the grip epidemic: Fully one-sixth of New York's population, at least one-tenth, have the grip; the others will get it. The epidemic has been more se vere and the cases have been more numerous than ever before. There are many cases of grip-pneumonia, which affects the lungs. This i» very dangerous. The death rate so far haa been enormously high—seventy-five deaths in one week is .unprecedented for grip. The Ideal Roosevelt. The Cincinnati Enquirer thinks Vice President Roosevelt will hardly be able to meet the expectations of the people of Washington unless he rides up the long "west steps of the capitol on horseback.

WESTERN MEN WERE AFTER HIM Bat He Stood Guard and the MU«l« --■ aipjpl River Item Got Through ; Safely. . . ' •>.'■■' Speolal to The Journal. ' - Washington, , Jan. 16.—"Will tha river and harbor bill vbecome a.law?" I asked- Congressman Corliss of Detroit. \, ' "Of course It will," replied. , , "But you are opposed .to the bill," I said. ■. , .. ■ *;.,:-■ ■/.•; "Yes and no," Mr. Corliss said. •■■■.• "I ■ am opposed to gross extravagances, and to the reckless grab bag system which hag under laid our ' river and • harbor bills for .years.' 1 think that the government ought to do a certain important part of the work of im proving rivers and other navigable waters, but I; oppose the system , under which; money is squandered by the millions every year in sections of the | country where the public is not interested and | from :. which; it can never derive any benefit. I am opposed to the bill in its present form, arid shall'do all that I can to defeat It; but it will pass,- nevertheless. Its friends have been very careful to lay their plans well. They have judiciously, placed appropriations here and there, in certain strategic sec tions, thus insuring the support-of mem bers from those sections, and in various other ways - have greased the - way . and smoothed all the rough ' places, i;. The bill will go through like a streak of | lightning when it comes time to vote; but" knowledge of that fact will not keep me from express ing my views regarding it in as-- forceful language as I can command." •. - •,., . Just, after my chat with Mr. Corliss I sauntered around the lobby ■ to the -, ele vator leading to the press gallery, and at the landing met Capt. ; Loomis of the Mm- 5 neapolis republican flambeau club, who had sent in his card to Congressman Fletcher. "I don't think he will come out," I said. '"Why?" asked Loomis. It so happened that I had been in the gallery a short time before and had heard 'several of the members from irrigation states, of the' far west getting "after, Mr. Fletcher's item of $300,000 for completing the reservoir work along the upper Missis sippi. These members were making all sorts of rude inquiries, and Mr. Fletcher was very much on the anxious seat. They thought that if the irrigation appropria tions were to be ignored, there was no rea son why any money should be spent in the upper Mississippi building reservoirs; and they pushed their point as far as they could. "Your uncle" was nervous, : and moved his seat to a place nearer Chairman Burton of the river and harbor . commit tee, who was on his feet making a speech in defense of the bill. Mr.. Fletcher couldn't sit still in his new position, but got up and moved about the floor uneasily. He thought possibly that the irrigation members would go far enough to endanger I the reservoir item. . i ;.» - It was while the excitement was at its height that Captain Loomis' card was hand ed to Mr. Fletcher. Hurriedly the Minne apolis member started for the lobby door. I was still telling Loomis about the things outlined in the foregoing paragraph. "Your uncle" came up hastily. "Glad to see you, Loomis," he said; "glad to see you; but you really must ex cuse me. The river and harbor bill is up, and some of those darned fellows from the wild west are getting after my reser voir item. See you later." And before the words were out of his mouth -he was back in the house, almost running to reach a point where he could hear the debate and satisfy himself that nothing harmful to the reservoirs ■ had happened while he was away. Later he sent for Captarin Loomis, and invited him to lunch. » Sitting with Mr. Fletcher, watching the debate were Congressmen Morris, Eddy and Stevens from Minnesota, all of whom have interests in the bill. All cards sent in for these gentlemen were turned down. They politely but flnnly declined to leave their seats while the debate was on. Late in the afternoon I met Mr. Fletch er as he was on his way to the senate end of the capitol. "I've got it fixed all right," were his words. "They tried to down me, but I was too much for them. We get the $300,000." Just before the vote was taken in the senate on the army canteen proposition, I had a talk with Senator Towne of Min nesota. He said: 1 shall vote against the canteen, although I must admit that I am uncertain whether from the point of view of exact facts the anti-canteen people have proved their ease. They claim that the canteen is demoralizing In the army; other authorities claim that it is in the interest of sobriety and better morals. In my own mind I do not know which side is right. Both are represented by some of the most emineut authorities in the land, but. as I have told the W. C. T. U. ladies and others to whom I have written, I shall give them the benefit of the doubt and vote against the canteen. Senators Hansbrough and McCumber, of Norrh Dakota, took prominent parts in the canteen debate, and were against the con tinuation of the canteen. They are from a nominally prohibtion state, and of course could noc be expected to take any other stand. A well known public man was asking at the capitol why Senator Hansbrough was against the canteen, and some one stand ing by remarked that it was because North Dakota was a prohibtion state. "Is that sol" replied the questioner. "I Wave spent a good deal of time in that state during the past half dozen years, and am well acquainted in Grand Forks, Fargo, Bismarck, Jamestown and Devils Lake. It never occurred to me that the state was prohibtion, and I am surprised to hear anybody say that It is." Representative Spalding of North Da kota "had 'em going and coming" on the roapportionment bill. He secured a con cession from Chairman Hopkins of the census committee to the effect that North Dakota in the Hopkins bill should have an additional member, and then offered an amendment to the Burleigh bill whloh in sured an additional member from North Dakota in that measure. Then he sat back and to<jk life leisurely. It was a very neat bit of work, and no doubt will please hia many friends.

' Senator Towne will, within the next week make up his mind definitely whether he : (Will deliver a formal address ' in the senate. ,r He has ' recovered from bis siege of f Jboils 5 and carbuncles, . end ig in good health again, but he is very busy, and his time of service is short. It Is a ques tion, he thinks, whether there will be time enough ; for the:preparation-«f such an ' ad dress as ] would like to make; and yet, the urging la so earnest and ['[to I friendly in character from.;men;ron both sides of the chamber, ; that he hardly - feels like' re sisting it. ; t It is \ altogether likely ; that he will make a r speech; ? but ;just when or un der what circumstanoes nobody,.; knows. : , It will/not bs V a political - harangue. .■ He will not, la. «th«r word*, so into the luum of the late campaign, nor discuss the lead ers *jn either side of that great battle. His address will deal almost exclusively with politics in the highest and best sense of the word. I Te will caH attention, it is likoly, to what he thinks are some of the prevailing tendencies of the times, and then tell why he thinks these tendencies are against the welfare of the republic and should therefore bo checked. I know that be wants to hold the very highest possible ground throughout the address, and keep as far away as possible from, anything savoring of mere partisanship. It will perhaps be the greatest effort of his pub lic career thus far, and should he decide to make it, will be worked out with much care. Washington city has a typhoid fever epidemic. The percentage of deaths from the disease is unusually high for ibis season and the number of new canes is fairly astounding. It has been agreed by the doctors that the trouble is jvith the Potomac river water, which is used for all purposes In the city. Congress has taken up the question and proposes a thorough investigation-of the two most approved methods of filtration. Every city in the country deriving its water sup ply from rivers or lowland lakes will be interested, in the report, for it is the in tention of the senate committee to call upon the beat known experts in the coun try and go iuto the question of purity of water supply very exhaustively. No railroad legislation is expected this winter. The short sessrbn and the ab sence of Senator Cullom because of his fight in the Illinois legislature, make_this almost inevitable, even though an organ*^ ization of shippers, working through the Lieague of National Associations, is pushing the Cullom bill, which aims to re store to the interstate commerce commis sion the power intended for it in the orig inal act. The railroads would like legislation to authorize pooling under restrictions. There was a proposal at the last session to combine something of this kind with the Cullom bill, but at present the plan seems to drop both. The railroad mana gers are getting along in the absence of pooling legislation by the cultivation of more friendly relations among themselves. The controlling heads of one road fre quently appear as directors of a com peting line. Arrangements such as this will go far to obviate the necessity of a pooling bill. The best thing for the League of Na tional Associations to do is to look out for its interests after March 4 in the re organization of the senate committee on interstate commerce. Between 35,000 and 40,000 pension claims have been filed on account of serv ices in the Cuban war and its sequel in the Philippines. The Philippine troubles furnish a very limited pension contingent There are plenty of men disabled, of course, but most of them go Into hospital on the spot and come out again in good condition. Those sent to convalesce in American hospitals have done most to swell the list of pension claimants. The most part of them, if left to themselves, would never file claims, but they are put up to it by pension attorneys and claim agents. They have their hired runners out in the street at Sau Francisco, watch ing for soldiers discharged from the hos pital. The runner nuisance became so intolerable a while'ago t&at the hospital | authorities devised the plan of sending discharged patients to the railway station in covered wagons. Then it was noticed that there was an addition to the usual number of feminine visitors bringing flowers to the bedside of the sick and wounded soldiers. The ministering angels were emissaries from the pension bar. Germany, according to late consular re ports, after having placed an embargo on American meats, is now learning by ex perience how it is to be the mark for such an embargo. Russia has proclaimed an order prohibiting. the importation of German meats. The action seriously af fects one of the principal industries of Brunswick, the manufacture of various kinds of sausage, and the chamber of com merce of that district has addressed a protest to the department, ol the interior at Berlin. The National Zeitung and the Vossischs Zeitung are of the opinion that the pro hibition recently issued by the German government against the importation of foreign meats into Germany has given a weapon to Russia and other foreign coun tries, by which they can ward off the ef forts to promote the export, of German meats. In regard to the argument that Russia ignores the German inspection for trichinae, the Brunswick Landeszeitung | notes that Russia may apipeal to the fact j that Germany does not recognize the American meat inspections, although the Americans assert that these are thor oughly trustworthy. Late advices from American consular agents in Canada ere to the effect that lumber exports from Montreal, the prin cipal export point in the dominion, show a decrease of about 60,000,000 feet for the present year as compared with. 1899. The amount exported this year was 226,996,857 feet. Some two dozen replies to letters sent out by the Canadian Lumberman were published in the lest edition of that paper. These replies go to show that log ging operatives in Canada are unable to obtain a sufficient number of employes. Wages and food have advanced, and the chances are that the output of logs will be materially reduced. The Lumberman adds that the increase in the wages erf woodsmen in the United States has amounted to nearly 85 per cent during the past four years. And it Is believed that there has been an almost equal advance in Canada. This inoreaee, saya the con sular report, cannot be disregarded by manufacturers, who must of necessity se cure for their product a price sufficient to cover the higher cost of production, and the report adds: "The consumption of lumber lor manu facturing purposes is likely to grow. In addition to a steadily growing home de mand, the export of furniture and wood implements is increasing. It is not im probable that the United States and Great Britain will take from Canada next year fully as much. If not more, lumber Uian in the season now closing." There seems to be a concerted move ment among certain interested classes In the northwest to secure, if possible, a re peal of the existing duty on hides. With in the past week more than a dozen long petitions bearing on this matter have been presented to congress. The members of both houses from Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Montana and lowa seem to be the ones thus far having a monopoly of this business. There is no chance what ever for any legislation on this subject during the present session, unless it should come through the pending bill to reduce the war revenues. —W. W.

SEWARD WOULD BE A CANDIDATE Countttution Will Bar Him If the Increase Is Hade at ThU Time. Special to The Journal. Pierre, S. D., Jan. 16.— The bill to in crease the salary of the governor and the circuit and supreme court judges is likely to meet with a Btrong opposition in the house, and that from an unexpected quar ter. A certain number of economists are always opposed to any measure of the kind, no matter how momentous, but In this case a good share of the opposition will come from attorneys. One of these is C. X Seward of Watertown, if current report may be relied upon. Where the shoe pinches Mr. Seward is said to be that he is a candidate for the judgeship of the third circuit. He is also a member of the legislature, and he believes that if this legislature increases the salary of the judges it will bar him from making a run for the place under the constitutional provision, which says that no member of the legislature can fill a position created by, or the salary for which was increased by the legislature of which be was a mem ber. Under these circumstances Mr. Sew ard ia eaid to be unwilling to take any chances of disqualifying himself for the race. It is rumored that Mr. Price of Yankton, and still another lawyer member, will oppose the bill for the same reason. The bill relative to divorce which was presented by Mr. Fietz of McPherson county, provides that insanity shall be cause for absolute divorce when it is shown by certificates that the defendant has been an inmate of the insane hospital for three years or m«re. The bill introduced by Representative Heath of Brookinga county, virtually re enacts the present pure food law and pre scribes penalties for violating it. The present law has no penalties attached. The bill, it is understood, was prepared by Professor Wheaton of Brookings college. The duty of enforcement will be put into the hands of a pure food and dairy com mission, if one Is created. It is announced that the date of the first excursion to the capital under the new ar rangement will be on Jan. 24. A ball will be given on that date and other amuse ments will be provided. If posible a herd of buffalo will be secured from the Car land ranch across the river, and placed on exhibition. A San Francisco photographer has a number of enlarged colored pictures on exhibition at the state house which he hopes to sell to the state for the sum of $400. ifmong them are four pictures of the officers of the First regiment—Colonel Frost, Lieutenant Colonel Stover, Major Charles A. Howard and Adjutant Lien. The pictures of Frost and Stover are very good, but the other two are poor. Eighteen smaller pictures represent the First regi ment in camp at the Presidio, in the grand review, and in various scenes in the Philipipnes. If the state purchases the collection it will probably be presented to the historical society. Senator Newby of Duel county has in troduced a bill that will materially aid the counties in collecting delinquent per sonal taxes. It empowers the commission ers to take possession of any warrant issued in favor of the delinquent and to apply the same upon his taxes, or to de duct the amount of the taxes as the case may be. Mr. Varnum's bill relative to the pay ment of taxes seeks to abolish the privil ege of making payment in two installments and contemplates a returning to the old plan of making all taxes payable in March. Bills are coming in now at a pretty good rate. So far about the same number have been introduced as at this same period two years ago. The bill introduced by Representative Goddard of Sully county relative to the treatment of indigent drunkards provides that county commissioners may, at their option, send indigent drunkards to in stitutions to take the Keeley cure at an expense of not to exceed $100. The bill was formulated by Dr. Rozelle, a former representative from Hanson county, and as first drawn made this action compul sory upon the commissioners. Senator Martin of Miner county, one of the six fusionists in the senate, is the only member of either house who has yet at tempted to make an extended speech. On Monday he orated long and earnestly upon the Steere letter, but elicited no reply from the republican side. The republican policy will probably be to ignore the gen tleman as much as possible, as it is be lieved he will be heard from frequently. A wolf hunt is one of the interesting and edifying spectacles which denizens of the reservation country propose to give for the benefit of visitors who may be Suf fering with ennui. They calculate to cap ture half a dozen or more wolves and turn them loose in. the cattle corrals to be chased by dogs. The so-called sport is said to be exoiting and Is a favorite pas time among the gentle cowboys of the ranges. The house played horse with the joint resolution to present ex-Governor Lee with his office chair, but the action will probably be reconsidered. When the reso lution came up Representative Warren of Lawrence county moved as an amendment that the office chair used by Deputy Gov ernor Ayres be also presented to that gen tleman, and the whole proceeding was tabled. It would be Just like Mr. Lee, however, to return the gift by express, after declining it on the ground that the legislature had no right to make such a disposition of publio property. The plan to create the office of reading clerk of the house died aborning. It was proposed for the benefit of Willis C. Bow er, who could have had the chief clerkship in the first plaoe but for the fact that he was personally objectionable to the Black Hills members. ,; Inasmuch as South Dakota has voted but twice <- for president:'; of , the United States, It is probable that comparatively few are familiar with the process except in a general way. The successful electors are first' of all sent a certificate ~of election by the secretary of state, pursuant to the returns of the state canvassing board. Prior 7to 1887, ~. when = congress enacted a new law upon the 1 subject, s the electors were required F to meet lat the .capitals of their respective states on the first Wednes day -in '■'• December following the ■'' election. Under ; the: new : law • the - electors - meet on the second' Monday in January, and a pe culiar, feature is that they are required to present themselves to the ■ governor , one day preceding their meeting. : The preced ing day being Sunday, it is legally impos sible -for v the electors to ; comply with the provision, \so they ; got here '• on ■■ Saturday. Upon - convening; at high noon on ' Monday the electors .went before Judge : Puller, ; the presiding judge -of , the supreme court, i and took the customary oath of office, : binding themselves to support the constitution of the ■■ United States and the constitution of the state of South Dakota, and to faithful ly discharge .the \ duties :of %, the ? office ito which '. they had been elected. ■.; They next organized by electing a chairman, and sec-, retary. In the ■ meantime the governor provided them with quadruple certificates showing ■ their, election. C^EjBHpBBOH , -The : electors C this i year were Thomas Fitchf of Granl county, A. R. Brown ,of Lincoln county, Charles Thompson of Hand< county and Arthur ;H. Marble of Meade county. ' They first cast their, ballots for T president, all voting; for William :Mc : ; Kinley. ; The next \ ballot was taken: for the ; position of vice ■ president,— and, of courae, ail voted ; for Theodore : Roosevelt.- Then * th.9 electors reduced thea»: facts to MANY GREAT MEN And Many Accomplished Women Recommend Pe-ru-na for Chronic Catarrh, CONGRESSMAN A. T. GOODWYN, OF ALABAMA. Hon. A. T. Goodwyn, Congressman of Alabama, in a recent letter to Dr. Hartman, from Robinson Springs, Ala., says: "I have now used one bottle of Peruna and atn a well man to-day. I could feel the good effects of your medicine before I had used It a weak, after suffering with catarrh for over a y»ar." A. T. QOODWYN. WHAT the skin is to the outside of the body, the mucous membrane is to the inside of the body. Every organ, every duct and passage of the body is lined with mucous membranes. A general flabbiness of these mucous membranes constitutes what Dr. Hart mau calls systemic catawh. A person with systemic catarrh cannot stand ex ertion. He is all tired out. He is ner vous and fidgety. He i 3 sallow and de pressed. He has little zest for life and is unfitted for business. Mis 3 Irene Akerman, a prominent dramatic reader of New York city, writes the following letter: New York City, 20 West Fifteenth Street, Feb. 7, 1900. The Peruna Medicine Co.. Columbus, Ohio.

In systemic catarrh there is more or less catarrh of every organ in the body. The catarrh may have originated in the head and throat, but it has finally per vaded the whole system. It produces a wretched condition. The mucous membranes of the whole body re fuse to do their work properly. Sight, hearing and taste, are slightly affected. The lungs are weak; the voice husky. The tonsils are red and inflamed. The etomach does not digest food well. The liver acts sluggishly. Suffered From C'atarrU for Sine Years—-Was Cured in Five Uou.Uim From letters written by Mr. Peter Hattenberger of Porterfleld, Wls., we quote extracts as follows: August 1, 1890. Dr. S. B.

Nine Years Later Ilia Cure Remained Permanent. . ■In a later letter, written January 1, 1839/ Mr. Hattenberger says: ' '</ am in splendid health at prestat and I am not in need of any medicine. However, I always keep a bottle of Peruna in my bouse. Sometimes 1 catch a little cold, but a few doses of Peruna stops that right away. '■■ "It is through Peruna that I enjoy such good health, and I recommend it to all who suffer from catarrh the same as I did."—Peter Hattenberger. Peruna It* a Natural and Efficient ■ - »rye Tonic. Peruna strengthens and : restores : the activity of every nerve in the body. Through the use of Peruna the weakened or overworked nerves resume their nat ural strength and the blood vessels at once begin to regulate the flow of blood ac cording to' nature's laws. Congestions immediately disappear. AH phase* of catarrh, acute or chronic, are promptly and permanently cured. It is through its operation upon the nervous system that Peruna has attained such a world-wide reputation as a sure and reliable remedy for all phases of pelvic catarrh known as female ailmeats. It is the best, if not the only, internal remedy for pelvic catarrh ever devised by the medical profession. The Home of Peruna, Colunibus, O. r-^^"' '-u, """! Mr. B. Martens of Sigel, Wis., writes: 'For some time my wife had been sick. She was iery thin, had no appetite, could not sleep nights, and was troubled with constipation.. ■ '- The physicians we consulted aaid it was dyspepsia. One of them said it was catarrh. She could get no relief until she began to take Peruna and Manalin. Be fore she had taken half a bottle of each she was conscious of a marked change. "She began to sleep at night, appetite came back, bowels were regular, and now, after taking five bottles, she is en tirely well. She looks like a new woman. "We cannot say half though in praise of your medicines. The physicians we employed were very much surprised when they learned that Peruna and Manalin cured my wife." There are no substitutes for Peruna. Peruna i& the only systemic catarrh rem edy on the market. No remedy before the public to-day can boast of as many complete cures as Peruua.
