Scott. Dick. Pratt, McCumber, Warner.
Daniel, Tillman, LaPollette, Gamble, Bev
erhlgc Knox and Hopkins.
Tie- lubit of the late President McKinley
of wearing a red carnation was so pro
iioimced dining his lifeline that his friends
would have been surprised had he failed to
have iiis favorite flower as a boutonniere
lli^ long in* -mhcrshlp in the House of Rep
resentatives accustomed every tint there to
si c him wearing this flowei and during re
nin years tin custom has been adhered to

neer on the train, with an expression of
thank" for a safe Journey.

lowest figures reached since the present
movement began.
A number of causes are assigned for the
decline, the principal one being the weak
ening of the Russian Imperial Bank's gold
slock In comparison wllh its note circula
tion. A fact further referred to Is that the

direct burden upon the bank's gold reserve

PRINTERS PUNISHED
JUDGE LEVIED HEAVY PENAL
TIES FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT.
CHICAGO, January 29.?President Edwin
R. Wright of Typographical Union, No. 10,
was today fined by Judge Hoidom of the
superior court $100 and sentenced to thTty
days in jail for contempt of court. Edward
Bessette, a member of the union, was fined
$50 and sentenced to thirty days In Jail.
The union Itself was fined $1,000.
The charge against the union and Its
members who were fined by Judge Hoidom
was violation of an injunction granted some
weeks ago by which the members of tlie
union were enjoined from interfering In
any manner with the operation of the print
ing establishments operated by members ot'
the Chicago Typothetae and from Interfer
ing In any manner with the non-union
workmen employed in these establishments.
In announcing his decision. Judge Hoidom
said;
Resented by Judge.
"It cannot be tolerated that any class,
condition or combination of men can show
their hostility to this court and tlout its
judgment, and in open meeting express then
contempt for the order and the judge, wiio
was merely 1110 instrument of the law. av
has been done in this case. It is not a
question whether the Injunction is right 01
wrong. That will be decided bv the upper
court, but while it is in force and effect if
must be obeyed. In this case it lias no:
been a mere technical violation of the in
junction but a persistent one. and an utter
disregard for the order of the court. If th:
court cannot be upheld then government is
a fraud and a sham.
Heavy Fines Imposed.
'"It is therefore the order of the court
that Chicago Typographical ("nion. No. 10.
be fined $1,000; that Edw.n It. Wright be
fined $l?iO and sentenced to thirty days in
jail, and that Edward Bessette be fined ?.V?
and be given the same jail sentence."
Before the announcement of the decision
counsel for the union asked leave to (lie .111
affidavit signed by sixty members of the
union which stated that they are opposed
to violence in any form in connection with
the strike. Attorneys for the Typothetae
objected to the admission of this, but it wis
allowed by the court to go into the record.

committee.

nese, are making a vigorous protest again?t

AVERSION TO PICTURES
William Nelson Sent to Jail for Medi
cal Examination.
William Nelson recently developed what
is thought to be a peculiar mania, and as
a result his father. James Nelson, had him
arrested in onler t" prevent the destruction
of certain pictures. After a trial on the
charge of assaulting his father the young
man was committed by order of Judge Kim
ball in the Police Court today to be com
mitted to jail to await a mental examina
tion.
James Nelson testified that his sou,
without provocation, hud slapped him m
the face.
"He's been breaking up the pictures In
the house." the father testified. "He broke
up a beautiful picture of his wife and a
beautiful picture of his sister."
"Why <io ycu ? nit to break the pic
tures?'' Judge Kimball inquired of li e le
fendant.
"Because I wanted to." was tlie t* pl> ,
"Why did you want to?" his honor added.
"Because ! didn't have anything else to
do." was the reply. "I got tired of them."
The father expressed the opinion thin
William did not act right, and Judge Kim
ball concluded that the defendant should
be sent to jail for observation by the med
ical officers there.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU
Few People Realize the
Importance off Good Di
gestion Until! It Es Lost.
Many people suffer from dysi?epsia and do not
know it. They feel mean, out of sorts, peevish, do
not sleep well, do not have a g?*>d. keen aj "etlte,
do not have the inclination and energy for physical
or mental work they once had. but at the name
time do not feel any i?artlcular pain or distress in
the stomach. Yet all this is the result of i>oor di
gestion, an insidious form of Dyspepsia which can
only be cured by a remedy sjiecially intended to
cure it and make the digestive organ* act nat
urally, and properly digest the food eaten. Bit
ters. after dinner pills and nerve tonics \% ill never
help the trouble; they don't reach it. The new
medical discovery does?. It is called Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets and Is a specific for dyspepsia and
Indigestion. It cures because it thoroughly digests
all wholesome food taken into the stomach,
whether the stomach is In good working order or
not.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, by digesting the
food. Instead of making the worn out stomach do
all the work, gives It a much-needed rest and a
cure of dyspepsia Is the natural result.
When you are nervous, run down and si eples?,
don't make the common mistake of suppo*'ug your
nervous system needs treatment und fill your stom
ach with powerful nerve tonics which make you
feel good for a little while, only to fall ba< k far
ther than ever.
Your nerves are all right, but they are starved,
they want food.
Nourish them with wholesome every-day. food
ant] plenty of it, well digested, and you can laugh
at nerve tonics and medicine.
But the nerves will not be nourished from a
weak, abused stomach, but when the digestion has
been made perfect by the use of this remedy all
nervous symptoms disapj?ear.
Whoever beard of a man or woman bles????d with
a vlgomhs digestion and good appetite lieing tmo
lded with their nerves?
Good digestion means a strong nervous sy?tem,
abundance of energy and capacitj to enjoy the
good things of life.
Stuart's Dysi>ei>sla Tablets will certainly set
your stomach and digestive organs right; they
can't help but do It. because they nourish the
body by digesting the food eaten, and rest the
stomach.
You get nourishment and rest at one and the
same time, and that is all the worn-out dyspeptic
needs to build him up and give new life to ever/
organ and an added rest to every pleasure.
Stuart's Ityspepaia Tablets ore a godsend to the
army of men and women with weak stomacba atwl
nerves and Justly merits the claim of being one ot
the most worthy medical discoveries of the time.
