HOME WELCOME TO DUKE
His Tour In Not Retarded a Glitter-
Ing Socceit.
London, Oct. 29.—Most elaborate plans
have been made for the reception of the
Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York
at Portsmouth and London. It is not gen
erally felt that the tour of the duke
and duchess has been a success, as on the
whole comparatively little Interest has
been taken In It, the war and other
events having completely overshadowed
the royal Journey. The officials, however
are determined that It shall end in a
blaze of glory. There wiU be naval and
military demonstrations. Newspaper cor
respondents who were with the Duke and
Duchess of Cornwall and York, party
contribute some remarkable letters to
their papers here, highly appreciative of
Canada, but they do not like the glimpse
they got of the United States. Thus the
Morning Post correspondent writes:
Some of us crossed to Buffalo to see the
exposition, which was disappointing. Buf
laAo is a slovenly looking, if prosperous city,
in contrast with the handsome Canadian
rities we had recently visited.
SHOOTS HIS MISTRESS
Senaatlonal Deed of the Brother of
Venezuela* President.
Caracas, Oct. 29.—Carmello Castro, a
brother of the president of Venezuela, has
shot his mistress. The latter was in a
carriage with a rival. Castro followed the
carriage and in a dark street stopped
the vehicle, mounted the box and fired
until the revolver was empty. His rival
returned the fire, wounding Castro slight
ly. The woman was shot in the neck and
breast. She will probably die. The man
who accompanied the woman received a
bullet in one of his legs. Castro was ar
rested. To bis Jailor he threatened to
commit suicide. ,
The inward effects of humors are worse
than the outward. They endanger the

everywhere established.
My friend, look here; you know how
weak and nervous your wife is, and you
know that Carter's Iron Pills will relieve
her; now why not be fair about it and
buy her a box?
BATTLE OF RACES
Sanguinary Conflict Takes Place in
Louisiana.
WHITES AMBUSHED BY NEGROES
Some Two lUoii.huJ Shots Are Ex
ilmu«ril and Several on Both
Sides Killed.
Columbia, La.. Oct. 29.—The town of
Columbia and Its vicinity was tbrown Into
great excitement yesterday, by several
messengers from the vicinity of Ball
Town, La., about twenty-five miles below
here, who brought the news that a .race
riot had been precipitated between the
whites and blacks of that section by the
shooting and burning of the negro Bill
Morris, who criminally asaulted and al
most murdered Mrs. John Ball a tew days
ago. Several runners brought the news
that numerous white men were killed and
that the neeroes were arming themselves
for the fray. This information created
the wildest excitement and a number of
men, headed by Deputy Sheriff Branton,
of this county, and Marshal T. T. Ford,
of Columbia, all fully armed, left for the
scene of the trouble. Telegrams were
sent to Governor Heard, of Louisiana by
citizens of Washington Parish who were
In Columbia informing him of the situa
tion and an attempt was also made by
Sheriff Ball of Marlon county to reach
Governor Longino of Mississippi. An
swers were received Instructing the sher
iffs to call out the nearest troops if needed.
It seems a negro named Crea Lott was
really at the bottom of the trouble. It
was reported to the officers of Waking
ton Parish that Lott, who lived near
Booth, La., was running a restaurant
without license at a camp meeting at Live
Oak church where a negro revival was in
progress. The constables of the district
gathered a Dosse and started to investi
gate. Lott was apprised of their approach
in advance and was ready for trouble when
It reached Live Oak church.
The posse was about one hundred yards
from the church house when ambushed
and the negroes opened fire from two or
three directions. The constable bade his
men pay no attention to the firing, as it
was from a distance. He said all he
warned to do was to capture Lott.
Wlien the restaurant where Lott had bis I
goods was reached the posse was fired on
by Lott and negroes who were concealed
behind the counters on the inside. The
tight became general between the posse
and the restaurant crowd and also between
whites and negroes all over the ground.
At this Juncture the posse deemed it
necessary to fire the Lott restaurant, in
order to dislodge his gang. Lett rushed
out when the torch was applied and dis
charged a double-barreled shotgun into
the crowd of whites. Twenty-two buck
shot took effect in the side of Joe Seals,
one of the posse, from the effects of which
he died. A negro who followed Lott shot
a man named Elliott, one of the posse,
in the stomach with a pistol. The negroes
then tried to escape, but others or the
posse had their guns leveled and com
pletely riddled their bodies with bullets.
Lott's head was almost shot from his
shoulders. He was a shapeless mass of
blood and brains before his body hit the
ground . During the fight a negro preacher
came out of the church armed with a mus
ket. He was shot and killed before he
could use it.
After the smoke of battle had cleared
away, there were five negroes dead, in
cluding three women, two burned beyond
recognition who perished in Lott's restau
rant, and one child who was with its
mother in the restaurant and perished
with her. The fences, trees, church house
and camps were thoroughly riddled with
bullets. Fully two thousand shots must
have been fired. It is rumored that since
the fight one negro has been found dead
in the swamps and several wounded have
applied for assistance at neighboring
houses. The negroes took to the woods
like scared rabbits after and during the
shooting and no one can be found in the
neighborhood.
The sheriff of Washington Parish and
posse, assisted by the sheriff and posse
of Marlon county, were on the ground
early this morning and assisted in bury
ing the dead and taking care of the
wounded. According to the latest from
Ball Town all Is quiet, but further trouble
is not at all unlikely.

Dubuque, lowa, Oct. 29. —Congressman
J. W. Babcock of Wisconsin was here yes

the late George B. Burch, and laid upou
It a Moral tribute.-
Speaking of the tariff revision bill which
he proposes to Introduce he said:
"We mean to abolish the tariff that is
sheltering the steel monopoly."
Asked if he meant to abolish it alto
gether, he said:
"Yes, then the United States Steel com
pany will have to lower prices in order
to meet foreign competition."
"But won't that result harmfully to the
smaller concerns?"
"No; you see the United States Steel
company has a lot of fictitious capital and
in order to pay its guaranteed dividends
on this it must get a large profit on the
product.
"The smaller companies have no such
stock and are not confronted with diffi
culties of this kind."
"Do you think your bill will go through
all right? Are you receiving much en
couragement?"
"I am constantly receiving letters from
concerns throughout the country that use
the company's product upholding the new
bill, and asking that I introduce it. Gen
eral sentiment is in favor of it."

ADMISSION OF CHINESE
Novel Question Arises at Port Town-
Send ( iiNtom Houte.
Port Townsend, Wash., Oct. 29.—A new
and novel question has arisen at the cus
tom-house Over the admission of two
minor sons of a Chinese merchant, and it
will probably be referred to the treasury
department. Eng Go, a Chinese mer
chant of Walla Walla, Wash., with his
two minor sons, sailed from the Orient
on the steamship Olympia, which arrived
here Sunday. Two days before the vessel
arrived Eng Go died and the
two sons male application for ad
mission as minor sons of a mer
chant. The law Bays that minor
children of resident Chinese merchants
can be admitted under the exempt class,
but as the father of these two children
died while returning, Collector Heustis is
at a loss as to the status of the deceased
father.
LAW IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Liquor From Other State* May Be
Sold In lowu.
Clarinda, lowa, Oct. 29.—Judge Wheel
er, in the district court to-day, declared
unconstitutional the law passed by the
twenty-eighth general assembly prohib
iting the sale of liquor shipped into lowa
from other states in original packages.
Under this law liquor agents from Oma
ha who covered southwestern lowa, were
arrested and fined in several cases. The
Law and Order league of lowa has pushed
the prosecution of the alleged offenders.
The agents combined to secure a ruling
on the constitutionality of the law, set-
ting up as grounds of unconstitutionality
that it interfered with interstate com
merce. The case probably will be ap
pealed.
ASK 75 POUNDS FOR A BIBLE

London, Oct. 29. —During the course
of the hearing of the claims against
the Duke of Manchester, it transpired
that in order to secure £200 cash the

the money lenders valued at £75.
For the cash and Bible the duke gave
a promissory note for £450. As the duke
said he did sot immediately require the
Bible, it was left keihind and was never
claimed.
Those who ere trying to settle up the
Duke of Manchester's affairs objected
paying for it, and the judge in the bank
ruptcy case reduced the bill by £40.

" Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — After suffering for months with a
complication of female troubles, causing severe bearing-down pains
and backache, feeling constantly fatigued and unable to stand up
without great weariness, great relief came to me when a friend
advised me to use Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
which I did. It was worth more to me than all other medicines I ever
tried, which only seemed to poison my system, while your Compound
healed me. I took your pills in connection, and they seemed to help
cast the poison and waste matter .out of the system. I used the
Compound for six weeks and was then completely cured, and while
this was eighteen months ago I have had no relapse, but have en
joyed the best of health ever since. I wish that every poor dragged
down, suffering woman might know that it would bring them health
to consult you and use Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and I always do what I can to tell them of it." — Mrs. H. S. Wag
