MCXIOX'S IXHALEB CUBES CATARRH. QUAYELPHIA FRANCHISES John. Wanaiuaker Makes Another Street Railway Proposition. Philadelphia, June 22. —John Wanamaker made another bid yesterday for the val aable street railway charter and fran chise in Philadelphia, recently given to a syndicate of friends of Senator Quay by the favor of the state legislature, Gov ernor Stone, and the city councils and Mayor Ashbrldge. In a letter to Representative-at-Large Robert H. Foerderer of the syndicate •which holds the franchise, Mr. Wana maker renewed his offer made to the mayor last week to pay. the city of Phil adelphia $2,500,000, and-1500,000 to Foer derer and his associates personally for the conveyance of the grants and cor porate privileges which they received without coat from the city and state. Mr. Wanamaker stipulated that of the $2,500,000 offered the city, 51,500,000 shall be used to deepen the Delaware river channel, and $1,000,000 to build public schools and for purposes of education. If he receives the franchise Mr. Wana maker will agree to build and operate railways of which three-cent fares only shall be charged between the hours of 6 and S a. m. and 5 to 7 p. m. He further agrees that at any time ■within ten years the city may resume the franchise upon payment of the act ual money expended and invested in the various enterprises covered by the char ters and ordinances. MENACE TO HEALTH Homeopathic Lecturer So Pronoun ces Christian Science. Richfield Springs, N. V., June 22.—Dr. R. H. Stout of Jacksonville, Term., read a paper before the American Institute of Homeopathy yesterday on "Christian Science a Menace to Public Health." In the animated discussion which followed, Dr. T. Duncan of Chicago led the debate. Dr. M. Belle Brown of the Woman's Medi cal College of New York made a state ment denying that Christian Science is spreading among women~~«-ho believe in homeopathy. j An earnest attempt is making to secure united, vigorous action by the institute against the doctrines of Mrs. Eddy, who recently characterized homeopathy as a stepping stone from allopathy to Eddyism. The next place of meeting of the Ameri can institute will probably be at Cleve land, Ohio, as a compliment to Dr. Charles A. Wood of that city, the incom ing president. The choice of place will be made by the executive committee. MINNESOTA UNIVERSALISTS State Convention at Rochester Ad- Jourim-Xew Officers. Rochester.

Grinnell, lowa, June 22.—George D. Herron no longer has any church standing in lowa. The Congregational church of Grinnell, at a business meeting last even ing, by a unanimous vote, decided to drop the name of the former professor of ap plied Christianity from its church rolls. This is the last act in the long series of procedures that has been necessary, ac cording to Congregational eclesiastical custom, to put Professor Herron outside the church. "A hod ii tie WbBBL" The physical machinery of most people often has a "spoke in the wheel." That is, they have some disorder which either im pedes their progress or creates nerve fric tion in some portion of their delicate mechanism. Piles is a tedious and persistent dis ease which wears out the patience of its victims. It has several forms of tor ture. Sometimes it's a maddening itching sen sation. At other times it's a knot of aching tumors highly inflamed. The only way to cure the disease perma nently is to use a remedy that has the power to permeate through the delicate membranes and tissues and remove all traces of Inflammation. The Pyramid Pile Cure possesses this power to perfection. It is formulated on scientific principles by specialists who un derstand the nature of the disease thor oughly. Thousands have been permanently cured by It and the manufacturers have come to look upon it as a "remedy that never fails." You need not go through an inconvenient course of dieting and supplementary treat ment while using it. It is a complete cure requiring nothing on your part but a Btrlct observance of the printed directions which go with each package. It is manufactured by the Pyramid Drug Co., at Marshall. Mich., and may be had of all first-class druggists. Don't experiment if you are afflicted "with this troublesome disease. It may lead to serious complications if allowed to continue. Get this remedy and check the disease before it becomes chronic; don't allow it to drain your best energies and weaken your constitution. ■'v' + PROTECT*" Ylißß'' fi~&TTlLF~fr<>m fli«sran<rti-.ey *mr<io V.rffi^''A'- * ■*** ■ E-.'W I - I I vUIS Xt¥% IB oLtC more work with the* soma ' amount uf feed, and be in a healthier condition.

BOLTER DOWN IN IA. Illustration of How the Prohibition Issue Has Declined. CUMMINS AND GOVERNORSHIP Next ""Republican Nominee Once Flew the Party Traces. *Vj>»n 77.1- Journal Bureau. Room 45, PoM Building. WaMhington. Washington, June 22.— probability that A. B. Cummins .will be nominated by the = republicans for governor of lowa and elected, illustrates how greatly the prohibition Issue has. declined of recent yers. Cummins bolted the republican party when prohibition became its lead ing issue. Supported by anti-prohibition republicansgj and ■ the democrats, he ran for office against the regular republican nominee. ' Now, lowa republicans do not look with favor upon much political inde pendence, whether the issue upon which the independence is exhibited to be one of principle or not, and so it has taken Cummins many years to get over the effect or his backsliding. It would not be surprising if he lost some votes this fall on that account, particularly those of the republicans who still believe strongly in prohibition, although the fact that he can be nominated at all shows how greatly party feeling has changed on that score. lowa, by a strong majority, voted to put prohibition into the state constitution. In a technicality this decision was thrown out by the courts, and prohibition became operative by state law, which is of course just as effective, and a much more sen sible method of securing it. Upon the prohibition issue the Germans left the republican party in large numbers; twice electing Boies" governor, and did not get back into their, old party lines until the rise of free silver in the democratic party. But the prohibition law .has since been modified by a system of local option so that the river town has licenses while the back country is strongly ' prohibition. Licenses are. only granted wherever 65 per cent of the voters sign a paper asking the county supervisors to do so. Thi*. method is considerably more significant than would be a vote of 65 per cent in fa vor of license, since it requires that per centage of the total possible vote. Many men will not sign a paper where they would drop in a ballot. The license fees, too, are high, one-half going to the coun try and the other half to the municipality. The consent of adjoining property owners is required. No screens and no music or games are allowed in the saloons. There is much feeling in the river towns in fa vor of a more liberal law, and if Mr. Cum mins becomes governor, an earnest ef fort is likely to be made in that direc tion. It is maintained that so long as 60 per cent of the voters elect men to en force the law, there is no sense in re quiring 65 per cent to decide which law they shall enforce, prohibition or license. A West Virginia Poser. The filling of few offices has given the president more trouble than that of the new district judgeship in West Virginia, and in the selection Important national considerations suggest themselves. Sena tors Elkins and Scott of West Virginia are great coal and railroad operators, both having become very rich in developing the resources of that wonderful little state. It seems that in the southern counties, on account of unsettled conditions in the past, there is great dispute over the titles to land and mineral resources which have suddenly become of so much value. These are the counties that have been made into a new judicial district over which B. F. Keller has just been appointed to preside. The important question sug gests itself in view of the litigation to come before him: Who was responsible for his appointment? Obviously, under our present system, Senators Elkins and Scott named him, al though among the last men in the state, in point of equity, who should have decid ed such a question. Secretary Root is said to have prevented the nomination of one of the men whom they first had In mind, but the president never questioned their right to pick out the man, and when the time came for actually making the de cison, he asked Mr. Elkins to come from New York and Mr. Scott to come from Colorado to confer with him in regard to it. The man finally hit upon is entirely satisfactory to both senators. He has long been known in West Virginia poli tics, althbugh a native of Pennsylvania and for many years a resident of this city. He was employed in the census of 1890, and later was appointed to a clerk ship in the interior department. He has been practicing law in West Virginia since 1897. Ex-Governor Atkinson of West Vir ginia, who was also a candidate for the judgeship, has been made district attor ney. Just why he was not made judge, although a man of some accomplishments, legal and otherwise, has not been made known. One of his friends asked Presi dent McKinley one day if he would not tell him the reason why he did not intend to appoint Mr. Atkinson, since the im pression had gone out that some secret influence was working against him. Mr. McKinley, with some vigor, declared that a president of the United States did not have to give his reasons for not appoint ing any particular man for office, that if he should begin to do so his troubles would never end. In this he was doubt less correct. .—W. W. Jermane. MAD MULLAH MAULED He Is Attacked and Routed by the Main British Force. Aden, June 22.—The Mad Mullah, after the recent repulse by Captain MacNeill of his attack on the British Zareba, acci dentally encountered the main British force of cavalry and mounted infantry, which immediately attacked and routed him. The pursuit was continued through out the night. A hundred of the enemy were killed and the Mullah and the Sul tan of Nur narrowly escaped capture. The British force lost seven killed and wounded.

New York, June 22.—Fourteen people are believed to have been killed and a num ber injured yesterday in the flre following an explosion among a quantity of fireworks in the store of Abraham M. Rittenburg, at Paterson, N. J. The store was on the ground floor of a tenement building. The cause of the explosion is not known. The property loaa will not exceed $36,000. The bodies found up to 12:40 are: MRS. LUCINDA ADAMSON MRS. CHARLES WILLIAMS. CHARLES WILLIAMS, helpless cripple. HAROLD RITTENBURG. WILLIE ELSAASSER. MRS. BERT BAMBER. BABY BAMBER. MRS. ANDREW ALVIN. MRS. ANN BURNS. CLARENCE BURNS. MRS ANNIE LANNIGAN. MRS! MARY DUFFY. The musing are: Joseph Elwin, two weeks old; Mrs. Anne Fenteman; two nephews of Mrs. Lannigan; Mrs. Mary Elsaasser. The explosion occurred &hortiy after noon and many of the occupants of the building were out at dinner. Ten families occupied flats on the upper floors. So great was the force of the explosion that a boy playing in the street half a block away was lifted from his feet and hurled against an iron fence. One of his legs was broken. A trolley car was directly in front of the building when the explosion occurred. The burst of flame blown out into the street scorched the sides of the car and singed the hair of the passengers. A number of those who were on the up per floors of the building when the ex plosion took place were either stunned and then burned to death, or found escape cut off and suffocated. After the flrßt ex plosion there was a succession of smaller ones, and then came a second big explos ion which was muffled and deadened and probably occurred in the cellar. Every window seemed to be emitting flames within a minute after the first explosion. A woman, her clothing on flre, leaped out of one of the windows and fell to the yard below. Her dead body waa dragged out of reach of the flames, but the flesh was roasted and dropped from the bones. Sh© later proved to be Mrs. Williams. Her husband was a crip ple. His wife is supposed to have re mained longer than she could with safety in an effort to save him. He was found burned to a crisp on his bed. COOKED ON HIS BREATH "KING OF FLAME" IS POISONED Will Not Soon Make Another Effort to Be His Own Gas Ranee. Maw York Sun Sracial Sorvtoa New York, June 21,—The King of Flame was poisoned by gas last night. The king is known to hi 3 landlady at 212 East Eighteenth street as, George Blondell. In his profession he is known as the great est hot air fakir in the business. But on the stage of a museum here he is hon ored by his undisputed kingly title. For four years the king dressed in red tights with gold and silver trimmings. He has swallowed mouthfuls of flame and has spat them forth at a terrific but envious populace. One of the airiest and gayest. things the king used to do was the spurting of a great column of fire into the air, while he juggled two flaming globes between his out stretched hands. Last night he essayed a new feat announced by the stage manager as follows: Ladies and gentlemen: We have with us to-night that dashing and unrivaled special ist and daredevil pyromanlac, the King of Flame. He will to-night present to you his new and original feat entitled, "Every gen tleman his own gas range, or, why rent one for $3 a year?" He will show that it is possible for the human frame divine to con ceal within itself enough illuminating gas so that no man need depend upon any out rageous monopoly or trust for his culinary fuel. He will display his ability to cook thoroughly and deliciously a number of bat ter cakes, which will be laid upon a griddle attached to his person by his wife, Mme. Blondett, justly and legitimately termed the Queen of Flame. The king went to the gas fixture at the side of the stage, put a rubber tube at tached to it into his mouth, and then, somewhat distended, walked out upon the platform and picked up a long pipe which had a griddle at the end of it. He put the pipe to his lips and his wife touched a match to the burner. There was a pop and a splutter of blue flame and a snort from the king. The king took the pipe from his lips and walked out aimlessly to the edge of the platform. Then he fell over in a heap on 'the floor among the audience. The press agent called an am bulance. They took the king to Bellevue. The surgeons there said that as he was lucky he would not die. "He'll be all right in the morning," but there is very little chance that he will continue to do his cooking on his breath. TURNERS AT NEW ULM Minnesota District Tnrnfeit Now in Full Swing.

LIBERAL CHURCHES Many to Be Founded Throughout the Country. MILLION DOLLAR CONTRIBUTION Two Northwestern Cities to Be ; Among the Firm i'? Benefited. Special to The Journal. Chicago, June 22.—0n the Rockefeller and Carnegie plan of endowing colleges and libraries, a western benefactor, whose name for the present is withheld, has placed in escrow in a Denver bank $1-,00Q,000 in securities for the purpose of establishing people's churches through out the country, following the lines laid down toy Dr. H. W. Thomas of this city. The administration of this great fund has been coflded to Dr. Thomas and men active in promoting the liberal church government, and yesterday the legal for malities incident to the assumption of the trust -were completed. State sanction therefore has been obtained and the or ganization of the people's church of America was made yesterday by the elec tion of a board of directors: President, Dr. W. H. W. Thomas; vice president, end treasurer, Professor F. L. Eberhardt; secretary Percival Hunter, John P. Alt geld, George \V. Bowman, W. W. Orma foee and Jenkin Llyod Jones. The doner of the $1,000,000-gift signi fied his intention to aid the people's church movement so signally about a month ago and it ia said that George W. Bowman, who, Secretary Hunter of the people's church of Chicago cays, Is pres ident of a trust company of Denver, was largely instrumental in inducing him to take the step. The anonymous benefac tor la said formerly to have been a resi dent of Chicago and a devoted parish ioner of Dr. Thomas. Of late years he had resided in the west, where he is said to have accumulated a vast fortune. Over the Bignature of Secretary Hunter the following statement was given out last night: Work will commence actively in September in establishing people's churches throughout the country, a benefactor having made this possible by depositing with a trust company at Denver securities amounting to $1,000,000, to be drawn by the People's church for that purpose. The plan is to double the amount of money any community may raise toward establishing a people's church. It is said that two cities in the north west will be the first benefited. PAUNCEFOTE COMES BACK STAYS IN AMERICA INDEFINITELY British Foreign Secretary Grapples the Nicaragua Problem Again. London, June 22. —In a tentative, easy going sort of way, the cabinet has begun to consider the Nioaraguan treaty mat ter. Lord Pauncefote has explained many things to Lord Lansdowne, the foreign secretary, and the latter is once more grappling the problem. It is needless to say that the foreign office has no In tention of hurrying, and in a month or so it may come to a decision. This will take the form of instructions to Lord Paunce fote, who will return to the United States. These instructions will probably not be officially communicated to the state department until congress shall con vene or the attitude of the senate in the matter shall be definitely known. Lord Pauncefote will probably be per mitted to interpret his instructions pretty broadly, and they show signs of being elastic enough to provide for any contin gency except a direct refusal on the part of the senate to recognize the validity ol the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. Lord Lans downe is as persistent as ever on this point, and, however willing he may be to abrogate it, he will vigorously maintain the potentiality of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty until such time as both signatories shall have' agreed to its abrogation. On the highest authority the Asso ciated Press is able to state that Lord Pauncefote will remain ambassador to the United States for the rest of his days, or as long as he cares to retain the posi tion. BARREN INTELLECTUALLY DOES.VT FLATTER AMERICANS President Schnrmaa of Cornell Say* Europe Leads Us Mentally. New York, June 22.—President Schur man of Cornell university said in reply to a question regarding the statements in his commencement address concerning American intellectual barrenness in cer tain directions: It is undoubtedly true that in America there have been no first class creative pro ductions of the human mind. We are living on Europe for the best there is in poetry, art, literature and science and the danger is that we are apt to be content to go on living so and neglect to use our own creative instincts. Before any betterment can be expected we must come to realize that we do occupy an inferior place in this sphere of culture. We must forget that in many things we lead the old world, and this is the hardest thing for us to do. I believe that the hope of the country is in its col leges and universities. If universities and their professors realize our secondary place in first-class science they will themselves be moved to greater effort in the direction of the highest in science, literature and art. It is impossible to say how many generations it would take to put America in her proper position. It may take fifty years or It may take five hundred. Dr. Henry Van Dyke, head of the Eng lish department at Princeton, is quoted as saying in an interview upon President Schurman'B utterances: On the general proposition that America Is intellectually Inferior 'to Europe, I would first question the fact and then confess my inability to explain the cause. It seems to me that there is nothing being done in Eng land at present either in the way of criti cism, fiction or poetry which is superior to what is being done in this country, with the possible exception of Stephen Philips in dra matic literature, which is of great prom ise. At the present moment fiction is the leading form of literary activity, and here we ran hold our own with England beyond question. In criticism it would also be easy to name at least four Americans whose work is not excelled in England. DRUG PRICES Agreement Between Manufacturer* and Retailer* to Stop Cutting. Chicago, June 22. —Out of negotiations now pending between members of the National Retail Druggists' association and manufacturers of patent medicines may come an agreement which will result in a death blow to the cut-rate drug business. The manufacturers will name a price at which their drugs are to be sold and in case any dealers should sell below this stipulated sum they agTee to refuse to sell another bill of goods to the firm breaking the agreement. The practice of selling goods to cutters in directly through a second party is also to cease. To stop rate-cutting was the principal reason for the formation of the National Association of Retail Druggists, which took place in St. Louis in October, 1899.
