LEBANON, Pa,, Jan. 20 At his own
request, John II. Light, a well-known
Swatara township farmer, is a prisoner In
the county Jail, a confessed forger. Busi
ness troubles and a stricken conscience
arebelieed to have affected his mind, with
the result that he contemplated taking his
own life. His plan of self-destruction was
thwarted, and this led him to surrender
himself to the authorities.
Recentl Light, who formerl kept a
store here, became financially involved,
and to liquidate some indebtedness he
forged the signature of E. J. Bomberger. a
Union township farmer, to a $75 note.
This action troubled him much, and sev
eral das ago, when Sheriff Oberholtzer
seized his property, his mind became af
iected and he resolved on suicide to end
his troubles.
Twice he was in the act of carrying the
design into effect, when he was disturbed,
and, losing his nerve, he begged the offi
cers to believe his stor of the forger snd
lock him up. Onl when he threatened to
kill himself was he taken in custody, and
an inv estigation of his stor was made,
with the result that it was found to be
true.

I'lelrt for 1'iolltulilc Inv estnientx.
Economic conditions in Haiti is the sub
ject of a report just recened by the State
Department from Consul Lilngston, at
Capo Haitien Mr Lhingston sas:
"The seere business depression in Haiti
noted. last car Ins not onl continued,
but is supposed h conseratie business
men to hae increased Importations are
restricted closcl to the necessaries of lire,
rnd a fall In the prices of homo produc
tions has -diminished exportations Jionc
has shown all the sensitheness of a ba
rometei in its fluctuations, the premium
on gold varying from daj to day anywhere
within the limits 'of 125 and" 200 per cent,
without any appreciable cause
"The rumoi of an attempt to negotiate
a loan,, or of a minor financial operation,
or of an incipient insurrection has been
sufficient to cause the premium to take an
upward or downward leap, accordingly as
the rerort was faorable or unfavorable to
commercial improvement and stability.
The trade with the United States, although
it has fallen off er materiall from its
former proportions, has not suffered in
an exact ratio with the general decline on
account of Its character, the importations
from the United States being confined al
most wholl to provisions and the tough,
cheap cotton goods worn b the masses.
"The most probable causes of this in
dustrial depression arc the Olaordertd
condition of the finances, the hca export
dut on staple products, and the want of
capital to develop the natural resources
of the countr. A large proportion of the
iler mone has been bought up at less
than its intrinsic value during this pe
riod of high premiums and shipped off to
New York, where it has probabl been
melted down. The guaranty for the paper
in circulation is the export duty on coffee,
and this duty has become so high that it
is stifling production, an anomaly in which
the weight of the prop is contributing to
the collapse of the ver structure it was
designed to support
"There is nrobabh no other country in
the world where capital is so greall need
ed as in Haiti, or where it ought to icld
greater results, all things considered
Capital invested here, with proper secur
it and protection and it is believed that
secuntv and protection are now easily ob
tainable ought not onl to yield a hand
some profit, but, if coupled with the in
troduction of improved modern methods
and appliances, would create a vast mar
ket for agricultural and mining imple
ments, railway and electrical supplies,
maihiner and general manufactures
The present demand for the simplest
of these things is ver small, and for most
of tuem entirel wanting And et mil
lions ot acres of the most fertile lands in
the world, suited to the growth of all spe
cies of tropical products, are either wholly
idle or cultivated in a spasmodic and
primitive fashion It is the natural soil
for the sugar cane, and et no sugar is
made Tobacco of a superior qualit can
be grown and et all the tobacco con
sumed is Imported
"The Haitien orange is probabl second
only to the Florida orange in the delicious
and juic character of its pulp, but, not
withstanding this fact, there are no orange
groves Lands capable, in qualit and ex
tent, of enriching so small a country
through the cultivation of the banana
alone remain untouched Even coffee and
and cacao, the staple products, are left al
most wholl to nature. There are vast
quantities of mahogan and other cabinet
woods and deposits of unknown extent of
iron, coal, and other minerals
"The projected railroad from Cape
Haitien to La Grande Riviere, referred to
at some length in a previous report from
this consulate, is now well under con
strucfon and, being the onl one in the
republic, promises to be an important
factor in the development of the countr
The concession for the enterprise, as
amended and now in force, is the most
liberal one ever granted b the Haitien
Government, allowing the formation of a
joint-stock companv m which foreigners
not onl can hold shares, but are able
through their holdings to acquire a con
trolling interest.
"One of the most active members of the
svndicate is an Englishman a merchant
residing at Cape Haitien All material for
the construction and equipment of the
road is admitted free of dut The con
cession is for sixty cars and the govern
ment offers to guarantee an interest of 6
per cent on $24 000 per kilometer In tilt,
construction The government also grants
to the compan for a period of twent
years the tolls of an iron bridge at the
Cape Haitien terminus which at present
amount to ?S00 a month in Haitien cur
renc .
The distance from Cape Hatien to La
Grande Riviere is onlv fifteen miles, but
the concession Includes the privilege of
constructing branch roads to Ouanaminte,
a distance of thirty -fhc miles, and to
Limbe, about nineteen miles The region
through which these roads are to pass is
one of the most fertile plains on the isl
and, adapted to the cultivation of all thf
tropical products for which Haiti is noted.
"The government lands granted to the
company include 4.000 acres specially
suited to banana growing Deposits of
coal and iron have been discovered within
eas access of the road, for the exploita
tion of which concessions can be secured
b the compan. The compan is now so
liciting capital to complete these roads,
cultivate the fertile lands included in its
grants, and develop the iron and coal
mines in the neighborhood It is believed
to offer an unusual! enticing field for the
investment of American capital."

' THE BLACK TffjLLS COUNTRY.
Some Fneti on (It Gjvi'ii by a M'ell
ICnoivn jico;rniilier.
Some veo interesting facts concerning
the Black Hills were given In a lecture de
livered before the Rational Geographic So
ciety last night by N. H. Darton.of the
United States Geological Survey In part
11 r. Darton said
"The Black Hills are an outlier of the
Rocky Mountains rising, prominently above
the surface of the grcal plains, mainly in
southwestern South' Dakota The region
presents great contrasts to the semi-arid,
treeless plains, with its wooded hills and
rugged mountains, grassy valles and run
ning streams. It has great resources in
mineral wealth and timber and presents fa
vorable conditions for sustaining a rela
tively large population.
"The area is about 5,000 square miles, or
slightly more than that or Connecticut, and
Us peaks rise from 2,000 to 3,000 feet above
the plains The higher peaks attain an ele
vation somewhat above 7,000 feet.
"The mineral production from the Black
Hills was about $7,000,000 in 1S99, and it is
steadil increasing Gold Is the principal
product, but coal, silver, lead and other
minerals are worked. Cattle, sheep, and
lumber production also is very large The
cattle and sheep ranges are mainly on the
adjoining plains and the total shipments of
their products in 1899 ielded nearly $5,
OCO.000 About 3,000 square miles of the
Hills are covered with pine forests now in
larger part embraced in a Government tim
ber reservation
"The Black Hills are due to a local dom
ing of the crust of the earth The streams
have cut away much of the crest of the
dome and exposed the upturned edges of
the complete series of rotks which under
lie horizontal! the adjoining plains
"In the centre are granites and costal
line schists rising in .high peaks and rug
ged hills while on the outer slopes are the
off-dipping beds of sandstones, limestones
and shales Some volcanic rocks were in
truded during the uplift, but the are not
of great extent. The mineralization is
principally in the crstalllne schists, basal
sandstones, and adjoining eruptive rocks.
In the gravels and sands along the streams
there are accumulations of placer gold
eroded from the original ledges.
"The Black Hills were almost unknown
until 1874, when General Custer visited
them He was accompanied by a large
force of soldiers for the rtgion was occu
pied b the Sioux and they were unfnend

prospector began notwithstanding great
opposition from the Indians and the United
States Government
"In 1S75 a geologic expedition was tent
to investigate the resources, and as its ic
l ort was favorable, the Goveriraent at
once began to bargain for the purchase of
the hills from the Indians
The Sioux war of IS7G. with the
massacre of General Cueter, delaed
negotiations but in March. 1S77, the
Irdians accepted ?500,000 for the hills,
and thev were at once made available bv
Presidential proclamation
"Meanwhile miners had flocked to the
region and large amounts of gold were ob
tained from placer deposits In the Dead
wood region Mining is now conducted on
a large scale, notabl in tho fnmois

STORY OF TJIE WRECK.
Olllcinl m-port of tlic I.oni of the'
Cruiser Clittrlestoit.
An official copy of the report made b
Capt George W. Pigman, of the eiulser
Charleston, wrecked about ten miles off
Kameguin Island, in the Philippines, No
vember 2, has been forwarded to the Nav
Department b Rear Admiral Watson.
The vessel was bound from Kasiguran
Ba for Manila, around the northern end
of Luzon, starting on her trip October 31
On November 1, at midnight, tho vessel
was steered clear of land at Illgan Point,
but at 2 30 a m , November 2, what ap
peared to be either land or a dark cloud
appeared on the port bow, the weather be
ing so hazv it was impossible to defimtel
determine whether the object was land
or a clond About 5 o'clock rocks were
made out ahead and an effort was made
to avoid them, and it was while thus
maneuvring that the vessel ran on an
uncharted reef There was a strong cur
rent which swept the vessel broadside on
the locks, and there she hung, resisting
all efforts to back her off The vessel be
gan to fill ver rapidly and in five minutes
the fireooms were Hooded, extinguishing
the fires The boats were launched with
difficult and filled with arms, ammuni
tion, and provisions, leaving enough room
for the officers and crew. The personal
effects of all v. ere left behind in order
that the arms and ammunition might be
saved The water was rough, and it was
S a m , three hours after the vessel
struck, before the boats were loaded and
left the ship
A landing was made in Font Islrnd at
2 15, guards being placed over the am
munition and provisions, and every bod
was put on half lations
Native boats from another Island visited
the castawas and promised to return the
next da with fruit, which thev did, the
pa master buing a lot of the fruit for all,
but none of the officers or men were al
lowed to buv an thing for personal use
The first night was spent in the open
air, the men having only light canvas
covering, but they fared falrlv well, as
there were only a few light rainfalls
There was no water on Font Island, and
Captain Pigman, after finding the natives
at San Pep V friendly, decided to
move his camp The natives met the offi
cers and crew at the beach and received
them in a friendl spirit.iand placed a num
ber of huts at their disposal Guards were
posted around the huts, and the men were
put through their daily drills with the
guns The men were ordered not to molest
the natives in any waj, and not to appro
priate anything belonging to the natives
and such forage as orringes and other fruit

WELTMERISM
Prof S. A. Weltmer, the eminent scien
tist, of Nevada-, Mo, who perfected and
originated that method of Magnetic Heal
ing known as Weltmerism, has recently
put his scientific discovery to a verv se
vere test. It occurred In this manner:
Prof S. A.. Weltmer is vry sensitive, and
it cuts him to the quick to have an one
speak In a slighting manner of the method
for curing the sick of which he is the
originator Or course, skepticism found
its wa in the minds of the people, and
it is not unreasonable to suppose that it
would, when we consider that the new
science perfected b Prof S A. Weltmer
laid claim to the curing of all diseases,
no matter what their nature, and this
without the aid of either drugs or the sur
geon's knife It was further claimed that
it not onl cured those diseases that come
to Nevada for treatment, but actuall
cured those cases where the patients were
thousands of miles away just as readily
Prof S. A. Weltmer learned that one Dr.
Bishop, living in Nevada, Mo, had made
the statement that his method was a
fraud The Professor became rightfully
indignant at the charge and demanded an
investigation. He knew that the only wa
that a thorough investigation of his meth
od could be had was to brim? suit against
Dr. Rishop. which he did. and the case
was brought up before that eminent jurist.
Judge Graves. The testimonial in this
case was most remarkable, as hundreds
of men and women, full of gratitude to
the author of their restored health, trav
eled thousands of miles to testify on their
oath that thev had been cured through
Weltmerism. In this trial Weltmerism
had thrust upon it the searchlight of not
onl legal Investigations, but physicians
throughout the country were called upon
the stand to sec if they could not prove
it a fraud. One or the instructions of the
court was as follows. "If ou find from
all the evidence and facts and circum
stances in evidence that Weltmerism was
and had been substantially beneficial to
the general public, and their methods
had substantially produced the reults
claimed for them then ou should find for
the plaintiff " s the jur found for the
plaintiff Weltmer and his co-laboror,

"I shudder ever time I think of that

"Ten hours out, at about midnight, we

"There was an old chap in the forecastle

the world as Weltmerism been all iha h
claimed for it, and had he not kno'vn
tnat it would absolutely cure all diseases
known to man and woman, both by Per
sonal application and by the absent treat
ment, he would not dared to put it to the
test which he did For it is acknowledged
that the case just closed was one of th
bitterest ever fought, as he had arrayed
against him ph8fcians of the old school,
and also that class of people who always
fight a new discovery in the field of sci
ence. And the glorious victory won by
him, for his method is such an absolate
proof that it is efficacious and that it has
at last placed the curing of disease into
the domain of an exact science that we
must now accept Weltmerism as the cur
ing power of the future. Is it not grand
that just as the waning nineteenth cen
tury Is about to bid farewell and we can
just catch a glimpse of the approaching
twentieth centurv. that we have placed
before us a method whereby all diseases
can bo cured and we need no longer fear
that we will be drugged to death by medi
cines or cut to pieces by the surgeon s
knife? For this grand discovery elimi

' Medicine a thing of the past " The tes
timonials that were brought into court
showed that more than 53,000 people had
been treated by tho absent method, and
out of this enormous number it was shown
that onl twelve had not been cured. This
