The bill to establish a Department of
Commerce and Industries is regarded as
one of the most important that has been
presented to Congress for its approval in
many years. Senator Frye, Chairman of
the Commerce Committee, and his Repub
lican associates, especially Senator Wil
son, have given this question much atten
tion and careful encmiry for several years,
and a vast amount of data has been accu
mulated and is in possession of the com
mittee.
The acquisition of the new territories
and dependencies, including our posses
sions in the Pacific Ocean, extending to
the Philippine Islands, as a doorway to
China and the East, . renders it, in the
judgment of the committee, of greater
importance now that the new department
proposed by the bill should be established
as soon as possible. The consolidation un
der one department of the large number
of different bureaus, which now occupy
separate buildings in various sections of
this city, the rental of which amounts an
nually to $150,000, would reduce the ex
penses of the Government and be a saving
of at least $75,000 yearly.
President McKinley and the members
of his Cabinet are in favor of the bill, and
believe that it will accomplish all that its
friends claim, and will result in a great
saving to the Government. It creates an
other Cabinet officer whose duties will be
more extensive than those of any other
member of the Cabinet
The new department will have genernl
jurisdiction over the foreign and internal
commerce of the United States, except in
so far as relates to the collection of rev
enue and administration of the customs
and internal revenue laws.
It will also have Jurisdiction over all
matters relating to the manufacturing in
terests of the United States, including the
extension of foreign markets for the same
and the increase of trade and trade facili
ties with foreign countries. The new Sec
retary will have control and will perform
all the duties now incumbent upon the
Secretary of the Treasury in relation to the
trade and commerce of the "United States,
whether the same be upon land or water.
The several bureaus of the department
of the Treasury known as the Life-Saving
Service, the Lighthouse Board, the
Marine Hospital Service, the Bureau of
Steamboat Inspection, the Bureau of
Navigation, and the United States Ship
ping Commissioners, the Bureau of Immi
gration, the United States Coast and
Geodetic Survey, together with the Bureau
of Statistics, are transferred from the De
partment of the Treasury to the Depart
ment of Commerce and Industries.
The Department of Labor and the office
of Commissioner of Railroads, -which are
now under the Department of the Interior,
and the office of Commissioner of Fish
and Fisheries are placed under the juris
diction and made part of the Department
of Commerce. The Bureau of Foreign
Commerce, now in the State Department,
is also transferred and consolidated with
and made a part of the Bureau of Statis
tics. The Consular Bureau of the Department
of State and the several eon&ular officers
of the Federal Government. including
consul generals, consuls, commercial
agents, their deputies, clerks, and all other
officers of the Government resident in
foreign countries! and charged with the
duty of facilitating and promoting the
commerce or the United States with coun
tries to which they are accredited, are

A BIG SHIPBUILDING PROJECT.
Extcnalve Plant. It In Said, AVill Dc
lluilt at Now York.
XEW YORK, Feb. S. According to a re
port current In Wall Street yesterday An
drew Carnegie and other capitalists con
template the erectltfh of an Immense ship
building plant.
It Is said that four or five sites along the
Xorth River front have been inspected, but
that elaborate precautions were taken to
keep the project secret, as it was feared
that if the news of the scheme was pub
lished it would cause a big rle In the price
of available property.
The reason for selecting this port for the
erection of the plant, it Is declared, is that
for shipbuilding on a big scale it offers
unlimited facilities for the transportation
of material, deep water, and a great and
ever available market for labor,, for lt is
intended to build battleships and other
vessels of the larger size, and fiie works
will give employment to thousands of men.
Mr. Carnegie declined to be interviewed
on the subject, but. in response to the
written questions, denied through the me
dium of a servant that he is interested in
any such scheme.
'I do not intend to engage In any busi
ness other than my own." was the mes
sage. C. M. Schwab, of Pittsburg, general man
ager of Mr. Carnegie's works, wa3 In con
ference with Mr. Carnegie (of several
hours on Tuesday evening. Questioned
about the report as to the proposed ship
building plant, he said:
"I don't care to say anything about it."
Pressed further for Information, Mr.
Schwab said:
"One thing I will say the Carnegie
Company is not interested in the project."
"But is Mr. Carnegie personally inter
ested?" insisted his interrogator.
"I don't care to say anything about it."
Mr. Schwab replied.
Mr. Schwab denies reports that he is to
resign from the Carnegie Company as the
result of dissensions following H. C.
Frick's retirement.
A week ago It was asserted that -Mr.
Frick had been in conference with other
capitalists at Philadelphia with a view to
bringing several millions of additional cap.

Secretary Long has announced that Ad
miral Dewey's relations to the Navy De
partment in the future would be of an en
tirely advisory nature, and that he ould
not be called upon to conpider minor mat
ters, such as constantly arise before the
department, and which often lead the bu
reau chiefs into acrimonious and prolong
ed discussions.
There is now no purpose to form an ad
miralty board unless the bureau experts
find they are unable to agree expeditiously
on the type and character of the new ships
authorized, in which event the whole sub
ject may be taken out of their hands and
placed with that of a new board, compris
ing high ranking naval officers, of whom
Admiral Dewey will be the senior member
and presiding officer.
Secretary Long wishes to leave the Ad
miral entirely free from vexatious subjects
and not to ask for his advice except upon
matters of the highest Importance. Should
the formation of some new naval policy
become advisable Admiral Dewey will be
looked to for advice, but smaller matters
will be left, as they are now, for settle

NEW YORK, Feb. S. Dr. George Wcol-
sey, of 117 East Thlrty-fcixth Street, and
visiting surgeon of the first division of
Oellcvue Hospital, is mending fractured
arms, legs, and bones by the mere laying
on of hands.
In ar. ordinary fracture case the pa
tient's bones arc put in plaster for five,
six, or more weeks. Then there is a
further wait of four or five weeks for
final healing.
A patient suffering from a fracture
who is now taken to Bellevue first has
the fracture placed in a temporary splint.
Next day. under Dr. Woolsey's direc
tions, the nurses begin the "laying on
of hands." Dr. Woolsey, somtimes with
x-rays, diagrams the fracture. Then hot
water is applied and massage is gien
with the dry hand, according to the
break and direction of the splintered
bones. It may be crosswise, circling, up,
down, or diagonal. It may be all of them.
There is no plaster of paris or heavy
splints no intricate bandaging.
Dally the massage Is given", sometimes
two or three times a day. And in a
week, two weeks, or three weeks, the pa
tient, with uing a crutch or a sling,
walks out of Bellevue. sound of limb.
Xono of the surgeons at Uellevuo

it.
Dr. WcoIsey hiimelf doet- not care to
talk of it. He Is preparing a paper dis
cussing the new trentment thoroughly,
which J to be read before the Academy
of Medicinie shortly.
Here are some of the records which
prove how successful Dr. Woolsey's re
markable discover is:

Experience has shown to physicians
that the majority of diseases have their
origin in the derangement or disease of
the stomach and other organs of diges
tion and nutrition. The stomach is the
receptacle in which food is received and
the laboratory in which it is prepared to
nourish the different parts of the body.
It prepares brain nourishment in one
way, nerve nourishment in another,
muscle nourishment in another. When
the stomach is "out of order" these
various forms of nourishment are only
partly or imperfectly prepared, and
nerve, muscle, or brain, as the case
may be, is only partly fed, and the result
is pain, which is Nature's protest and
warning, i ne pain may ue in trie ncau
or in the heart, but you must reach it
through the stomach or you can't cure
it. That is the philosophy on which Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is
prepared. It has absolute control of
the stomach and digestive and nutritive
system. It cures diseases in head, heart,
liver, lungs and other organs by curing
the diseased condition of the stomach
which prevents the proper nourishment
of the various organs and corrupts them
by its own diseased condition, in the
partial nourishment it provides. In like
manner "Golden Medical Discovery"
purifies the blood, by purifying the
stomach and other blood-making organs.
It contains no alco
hol, or other intoxi
cant, and no narcotic.
XEW YORK, Feb. 8. Chief Wilkie, of
the United States Secret Service, is look
ing for a gang of counterfeiters in this
city who were allied with the Canadian
gang, headed by Anthony Decker, recent
ly arrested in Baltimore. The gang in this
city, it Is said, printed one Issue of coun
terfeits for Decker and his pals in Canada.
Decker, when arrested, was preparing a
grand coup. He intended to print In one
week a Quarter of a million of $5 bank
notes, counterfeited to resemble those is
sued by Molson's Bank, of Montreal. He
had for years been an expert stone en
graver, and for seventeen years worked
for the Burland Lithographic Company,
which did all the bank note and postal
stamp work for the Canadian Government.
He was one of a syndicate who Hooded the
country with counterfeit Jl bills, but lie
had decided to start for himself with the
aid of his twenty-two-year-old son, his
wife, and probably one other man.
Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood, the Com
missioner of the Dominion Police in Otta
wa, assisted by Superintendent McCaskill.
of the Canadian Secret Service,
learned that Decker was mixed up with
the issie of $1 counterfeits. From that
time Decker and his crowd were never lost
sight of. His former associates were to be
allowed to pass the issue of new counter
feits as soon as it was ready.
Decker broke, however, with his former
printers who lived In this city in Bleecker
Street. Decker concluded to leave Montre
al last May. Finally he decided to settle
in London, Ontario, Colonel Sherwood de
cided to take his chances on catching him
and his partners in the act of printing the
new issue" of bills, so the shadow was kent
up and old Decker went on with his work.
To provide for his escape, if detected,
he rented another house which stood back
to back with the first one he leased. He
was known in London as Mr. Ross, a civil
engineer, and was considered a superior
citizen.
Finally in the first week in December,
things were ready to start work on the Is
sue, and, one day. Colonel Sherwood and
Superintendent McCaskell were ready to
arrest Decker and his helper, Hans Kuntz,
when an unforseen accident caused the
arrest of the conspirators when neither of
the officers was present. It appears that
the counterfeiters had become suspicious
and decided to separate. Each went a dif
ferent way. Paul, the son, went to a lit
tle house in Woodstock, rented for just
such an emergency. He took with him
the paper, the colors, the press, one com
plete plate for a five-dollar bill and five
uncompleted plates. The wife went to

When Mr, Hanna left the city tbe sery
was given out that he bad taken with him
