Leishman, However, Expects
Porte Will Keep Promise to
Constantinople, Aug. 17.The Porte
has addressed a formal note to the
American legation confirming its un
dertaking to accord eqiial treatment
to American schools and kindred in
stitutions as that granted to the most
favored nation, "subject to the ac
complishment of the usual depart
I spite of the seeming reservation,
it is not believed that the Porte will
raise further difficulties in executing
the agreement,' or run the risk of
creating a fresh crisis, which Ameri
can diplomatic circles declare would
follow promptly any failure to carry
out the arrangement.
There is some comment in diplo
matic and official circles regarding
the alleged incompleteness of the
American settlement compared with
the settlement obtained by France
on the occasion of the occu
pation of the island of Mitylene in
190 1. American circles, however,
point out that Minister Leishman ob
tained what he demanded and is now
awaiting the execution of tha under
taking. STRIKERS APPEAL
TO ALL UNIONISTS
Will Ask-Them to Support the
Fight Against the
Chicago, 111., Aug. 17.Every union
workingman and woman in the coun
tryabout 3,000,000, according to the
leaders of organized laboris to be
asked to contribute to the support of
the packinghouse strikers.
President Donnelly of the butcher
workmen said today that an appeal
had been sent to all the labor unions
in the United States, asking them to
help provide funds. President Gom
pers of the American Federation of
Labor, Mr. Donnelly said, would be
asked to make an appeal for funds.
Strike sympathizers inaugurated a
revival of rioting today. Two Houses
containing groups of non-union men,
were attacked by mobs, strikebreakers
elsewhere were asaulted, the attorney
of one of the packing companies men
aced by a rock thrower and, in gen
eral, the day was made stormy.
Reports that union leaders were
planning to send out more pickets to
watch for "unfair" handling of meat
caused activity of police officials to
day. I was said that 300 more pick
ets would be on duty in the stock
yards district, about markets and in
the streets near packers' branches.
This, it was said, would enable the
unions to induce more teamsters to
refuse to handle "unfair" meat. May
or Harrison held a conference with
Chief of Police O'Neill on the question
of providing more policemen where
pickets were to be on duty.
I seemed apparent today that the
labor leaders had given up all Immedi
ate hope of peace thru any action of
the packers and were making financial
preparations for a long struggle. I
was said to be improbable that any at
tempt would be made to extend the
strike to unions not already involve d.
One chief reason for this is that the
unions not already out are said to be
not anxious to strike, but the reason the
strikers give is that the more men that
are on strike the smaller will be the
contributions to the benefit fund.

portunity will not be as great as that
of the president himself, but, as president
of the senate, you may have some oppor
tunity the opportunity of changing the
senate rules on your own motion, or do
ing some other revolutionary thing, which,"
as a play to the galleries, will make your
good old "Welsh name,famous as that of
one of the most spectacular and strenuous
of men. Men, sir, are not responsible
for the size of their opportunities. They
are responsible for taking advantage of
themsometimes for not making them,
as in re Panama republic, for instance.
In conclusion, sir, pray for warnobody
can tell what great things war will end
in when once begun. I might result in
making of your chief the first "Emperor
and Lord Protector of the Western Hemi
sphere." You would, of course, in that
event, as heir-apparent, share his glory.
Your legal title might become "Prince
d'Outre Mere." I know you would run
some little risk of having him designate
his secretary of war as his successor,
but I believe I would chance it. Besides,
peace is a tame and unstrenuous thing,
and "smothers out some of the finest in
stincts of manhood." Shakspere sa|d:
"In th right hand carry gentle peace
to silence envious tongues." Our fore
fathers, even down thru the times of
Lincoln and Grant, thought this sentiment
vsound morality and sound policy, for na
tions as well as for individuals. W know
now that the right policy is "to tread,
softly and carry a-big stick."'
Who was the fool who said "War is
hell," anyhow? My word for It, he never
saw real war.
Remember, above all things, that our
chief duty as citizens, but especially as
rulers. Is not to be "weaklings" or "cow-
ards." A weakling, sir, is a strangely
domesticated animal, who listens before
he acts, and who weighs evidence before
he decides, who modestly venerates great
nessin others, who actually prefers "pip
ing times and peace" to the "pomp and
circumstance of glorious war. Weak
lings are "me who fear the strenuous
life, the only national life that is really
worth the living"the life of crown
colony-conquest, the life militant, in a
word. W are getting to be as a people,
your committee is glad to say, splendidly
In real conclusion, Mr. Davis, it Is a
sincere pleasure indeed to know and to
be able to help to place in high position
a man of your character and sense and
modesty a man who, as the result of
a life of continence, temperance, self
containment and useful and honest Indus
try, presents a picture, in virile tho ad
vanced age, of mens sana In corpore sano
which is a delight to the eye, a satis
faction to the soul, and was taught by
wise ancients to be the summum bonum
of individual earthly existence.
Mr. Davis Accepts.
Mr. Davis, in accepting the nom
ination, said in part:
The Official notification which you bring
of my nomination for the vice presidency
of the United States, by the national de m

gratitude to my party for the'honor con

a deep sense of my responsibility, to my
party as a candidate, and to my country
in case of my election.
I desire to say that I heartily indorse

With a candidate whose personality ap

whose principles are for the greatest good

St. Petersburg, Aug. 17.Further
interesting details of the sea battle
of Aug. 10 received at the admiralty
from Captain Matousevitch of the

that it was a longrange fight and that
the Russians, sailing in close forma

vantage, not only by the superiority of
the Japanese numbers, but owing to
the fact that after encompassing Ad
miral Withpft's semi-circle they were
enabled to pour in a remarkably dead

Captain' Matousevitch says the Jap

never less than five miles. The efforts
of the Russians to close with the

Kidnapped and Hidden Eighteen

Kokoma, Ind. Aug. 17.In a mis

growth of brush and trees, and far
from human habitation or public
highway, Miss Nettie Rivers, a pretty,
16-year-old Kokomo girl, was found
yesterday, where it is alleged she has

Nearly two years ago. the girl mys

The situation was discussed at the

ered that Russia's skirts are clear, so
far as China is concerned. Mr. Hay
believes that when the Russian com
mander ordered the vess el blown up

boarding party and assaulted the Jap
anese officer who came on board to
investigate, he forfeited his right to
Chinese protection. Napoleon estab
lished this rule in the General Arm

As between Japan and Russia, Mr.
Hay holds that the Japanese made the
first hostile move by boarding the disy
armed destroyer and that reparation
should be made for it. The return of
the destroyer, he thinks, would go far
toward closing the incident between
Russia and China.

M|my Persons Have Backache
'AS. and Kidney Trouble and A
Don't Know It -?V
Mr. George King, Deputy Sheriff of
Rensellaer Co., N. Y for years "was a well
known merchant of Troy. In a letter from
No. 45 Ki ng St., Troy, N Y., he writes:
"Peruna cured from what the
doctors were afraid would turn into
Bright's Disease, and after you have
gone through the suffering that I have
with catarrh of the bladder and kid
ney trouble, and have been cured, you
are pretty apt to remember the medi
cine that did the work.
"Peruna is a blessing to a sick man.
Eight bottles made a well man and
were worth more than a thousand
dollars to me. I cannot speak too
liighly of it. I is now four years
since I was troubled, and I have en
joyed perfect health sinc e. Every
spring and fall I take a bottle of It
and I keeps well. I re"ely recom
mend Peruna."George King.
More people suffer from kidney trouble
than any other ailment. Backache is
generally the first symptom of diseased
kidneys. Half of all cases of kidney trou
ble are due to catarrh of the kidneys. A
first appearance of such symptoms Pe
runa should be taken. It strikes the root
of the disease. It relieves the catarrhal'
kidneys of the stagnant blood, excreting
the serum from the blood. Peruna stim
ulates the kidneys to expel from the blood
the accumulated poison, and thus prevent
tha graver results which are sure to fol
low if poisons are allowed to remain.
Peruna cures kidney disease because it
cures catarrh wherever located.
Peruna stands before the nation as a
thoroly tested, accurately scientific inter
nal remedy for catarrh. There are prac
tically no medicinal rivals in the field.

New York Sun Special Service.
"Washington, Aug. 17.J. T. South
ard of 1300 Yale street plays his piano
fifteen hours a day and apparently
all Washington cannot stop him. His
neighbors have begged and implored
him to "give them a rest," but he has
turned a deaf ear to their entreaties.
They say it would not be so bad if
he would play attractive music, but he
plays the same bar for hours at a
time, uses the loud pedal almost con
stantly, and hammers away at the in
strument as if bent on breaking it.
The district commissioners have
been appealed to, and United States
District Attorney Morgan has been
asked to try to find a way to stop the
dreadful noise s. The police declare
there is no law by which Southard
may be halted. Real estate brokers
