His campaign will not need his presence in Philadelphia this year, though he proposes to get out as big a He publican Toteas possible, to make things run more smoothly next year. The move to no minate Bigler for State treasurer is inter preted as inimical to "Wallace. IEFECIAL TELECEAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Philadelphia, August 13. National Chairman Quay left for his home at Beaver on the 11:20 train. Before leaving the Continental Hotel he was called on by Collector of Internal Bevenue Martin, whom he had informed by wire ot his com ing. Collector of Customs Cooper, District Attorney Wanger, of Norristown; Con gressman Yardley, of Bucks county, and Senator Delamater. A few minutes before 11 o'clock, in com pany with Collector Martin, Senator Quay ' started for the Broad street station, and the -arge number of callers who came later ex pecting to see him were sadly disappointed. SOEBY FOB FESSENDEN. The Senator expressed regret on account of Mr. Fessenden's accident, but was pleased that no fracture of limbs occurred. Unless some unforeseen thing occurs, Senator Quay will remain at Beaver for some time, taking an occasional run down to the headquarters of the National Committee at Washington. His presence at Philadelphia will not be needed during the campaign, as Chairman Andrews, who Is now at Titusville, will be here In a few days, and Frank 'Wining Leach, Secretary, and Chief Clerk Morri son, of the House of Representatives atHar risburg, who is now acting as chief clerk of the State Committee, arc busy at headquar ters sending out to the chairmen of the vari ous county organizations poll books, etc., for use in the coming' campaign. AS IF 'TWAS NECESSARY. Affairs are being managed at the Repub lican State Committee headquarters the same as il there was going to be the hottest kind of a fight this fall Senator Quay is giving every attention to the management L i of the details, and Chairman Andrews is perfectly willing to carry them out under . the Senator's guidance. 1 None of the old force, with the exception of Secretary Leach, who were with Chair man Cooper during his career as field mar shal, will De at Chairman Andrews' elbow. The State organization will be a Quay machine, pure and simple, and none but trusted friends will be on guard. It is intimated that every effort will be put forth to get out a heavy Republican rote this year, and to roll up an overwhelm ing majority. By so doing, the junior Sen ator, who will be credited with the victory, will be able to make THE NOMINATION OF DELA2IATEB or whoever he may select, an easy matter, and at the same time, scare off any of the leading Democratic candidates who might look lor a show of winning. The friends of ex-Senator William A. "Wallace, who is willing to run for Governor next year, "if there is a chance," are con siderably exercised by the movement to nominate E. A. Bigler for State Treasurer. Bigler hails from the same county in which "Wallace claims his home, and the adherents of the latter fear that the nomination of Big ler would seriously handicap, if not prove fatal to "Wallace next vear. Geography is recognized as a very arbi trary factor in politics, and the supporters of Wallace have taken the alarm at the Bigler boom, because they think they see the work of designing hands in the con struction of the political map. Thev charge the scheme to the enemies of Wal lace, who have other candidates for Gov ernor in view, and who have PASSED THE WORD ALONG the line to nominate Bigler. They blame ex-Chairman Hensel for engineering the business, in the interest of Chauncey F". Black, with a helping hand from Scott and men like Larkin, of Pittsburg, who would be for Pattison for Governor. In order to lead off Hensel & Co., the "Wallace men are going to try to persuade Bigler not to run. One of them said to day: "i don't see why Bigler wants to run, unless having once had a taste of office he has got the office-holding mania. He will not be elected, although there is a chance to beat Boyer with the right kind of a fight, as some of the leading Republicans who are opposed to Quay want to have their fight out with him this year, bo that they can get into line next." t ALMOST AS SAD. The Wallace supporters, while not so outspoken in their opposition to Captain Clay's candidacy as to the Bigler move ment, think that also would militate against the Clearfield statesman, since Clay lives in Elk county,which is in the same Congres sional district with Wallace. What tho Wallace leaders want is a Philadelphian for State Treasurer, and they are now spying out the ground and looking for the man. B. K. Jamison has been men tioned as a man who would fill the bill. Edwin S. Stuart, President of the State League of Republican Clubs, will issue a call in a few days for a convention of the State clubs at Lafayette Hall, Pittsburg, on September 21. AN EXCITING CONTEST. Virginia Democratic Candidates for Cover- nor Running n Close Knee McKonney tho Favorite Several Others Poshing Him Hard. rSrECT.lL TELZOKAM TO TUB DISPATCIT.l Petersbueo, Va,, August 13. In politi cal circles here to-day bnt little else has been talked of but the State Democratic Convention, which assembles in Riclfmond to-morrow at noon. The speculations and conjectures as to who will be the choice of the convention have been many, but the general impression appears to be that the gubernatorial candidate will be Captain Phil McKenney, ot Farmville. Tho convention will bo composed of 1,532 delegates. Necessary to a choice, 767. Captain McKenney, it is said, will get 631 votes on the first ballot, and that Hoge Tyler, of Pulaski county, who is very prom inently spoken of as the candidate for Lieutenant Governor, will throw his strength over to McKenney on the second ballot . The Norfolk delegation to the convention passed through here to-night, en route to Richmond. It is understood that 20 of these delegates are for McKenney and six for Bierne, with Samual Woodson Venable, of Petersburg, as their second choice. The whore delegation from Pittsylvania county are for McKenney, with Venable for their second choice. It is believed that the dele gation of Richmond City, who are for Bierne, are also for Venable as a second choice. It is thought by the friends of Captain Venable that if McKenney or Bierne are not nominated that then Venable will be the choice ot the convention. The delega tion for Prince George County and lor Petersburg went over to Richmond this afternoon, wearing silk badges on the lapels of their coats on which were, in large letters, the words "Samuel Woodson Venable for Governor, the war horse of the Democracy." This morning about 100 delegates from the southwest passed through here en route to the convention. Most of these are for McKenney, with many of them in favor of Venable if McKenna cannot he nominated. James W. Marshall, of Craig county, was selected to-night by the State Commit tee as temporary chairman of the conven tion. The amazing feature of the convention is the immense gathering it has brought from the country. The total failure of crops and consignment, and the consequent depression begot the belief that it might be difficult to secure even the attendance of farmer delegates. Not only is every delegate on hand, but each county is largely represented byontsiders who have come lrom a deep interest in tho proceedings, and with the determination of downing Mahone. The talk of nominating that in dividual for Governor on the Republican ticket has been like shaking a red rag at a DUU. Chairman Barbour says this is not a na tional convention, and therefore he does not see that national questions can entgr into the campaign. He says the internal revenue ought to be abolished, and, so far as the State debt is concerned, that the Democratic party will, of course, adhere to the Biddleberger bill, which has been concurred in by all the conventions since 1883. Concerning the color question, he does not see that it is incumbent upon the Democrats to make any issue. If the negroes mass themselves withthe .Republi can party they will raise that issue them selves. WILL BE BRISK AND BITTER. A Son-in-Zjuw of a Late Congressman Has a Fight on Unnd.

"I do not zeenkzat I zall breeng roat against zee Brezedent of zee United, States," said Mon sieur Marcel Pelouard to the correspodent of Tub Dispatch to-day, in his very dilapidated English. Monsieur Pelouard is thrifty and has discovered that It would re quire more money to pay the lawyers that he would get if he should bring suit and win it He went on to explain that he was very indignant at the manner in which some "j'oornaleests" had misrepresented and slandered him. He declares that Madame Pelouard can prove by two witnesses that Mr. Ziemoun, the White House steward, induced her to leave th'e employ of Mr. Bancroft upon a promise that she should have employment for the summer, that is, until the beginning of the fashionable season, at $50 a month. AN INTEBESTINQ COLLOQUY. Monsieur Pelouard recites a colloquy be tween the steward and Mr. and Mrs. Har rison just previous to the departure of the latter for Deer Park, which would seem to explain this extraordinary business. A day or two previons to her departure Mrs. Har rison called Ziemoun and requested him to dismiss the French cook. "But," said Mr. Ziemoun, "I secured her services for the summer, otherwise I could not have got her at all." "Oh, that does not make any difference," said Mrs. Harrison, "we cannot afford to pay her (CO a month for doing nothing while we ore away. Give her a week's notice." The steward, feeling that he was being made responsible for a great injustice, ap pealed to the President, but the latter was decidedly of Mrs. Harrison's opinion, ex cept in one thing, and that was the week's notice. NO NOTICE NECESSABY. "1 don't see why we should give her a week's notice," said Mr. Harrison. "Dis miss her at once." And thus Ziemoun was left no discretion, hut had to break his contract with Madame Pelouard, though he acted as the agent of the President, After this Madame Pelouard attempted to appeal for "joostees," as Mon sieur Pelouard cays, but was stopped on the' Stairs Dy sergeant uinsmore, wno threatened to arrest her. Monsieur and Madame Pelouard have taken a large house at 80SEighteenth street) and before winter will open a private! French hotel, or "pension," with a select cafe, and will cater for small families. While Indignant at their treatment by the President and Mrs. Harrison, they are shrewd enough to recognize the value of the irea advertising they have received. A GOOD FIELD TO WORK. Tho Advantages' to Accrue From an American Industry In Italy. Washington, August 13. Isaao B. Diller. United States Consul to Florence, has made a report to the State Department of American interests within his consular jurisdiction, that now includes nearly 3,000, 000 souls, one-tenth of the population of Italy. The Consul urges the establishment of a large warehouse at Flprence for the ex hibition and sale of American agricultural machines and mechanical implements. Sev eral attempts to sell American machines have heretofore proved failures because of the unreliability of the agents employed. A good trade with the peasaut proprie tors, Mr. Diller believes, could be secured by means of a grand central depot In the past year, Mr. Leroy DeKoven.jof Chicago, has established a dairy farm at San Donato, on the outskirts of Florence, which has proved successful, despite direful predictions of failure.

A WATCHMAN IN NEW WORK. He Is Hade to Distribute Circulars Adver tising the Postmaster General, SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TBE DISPATCH. 1 Washington, August 13. The watch man at the northeast door ot the Treasury building found himself in new business this afternoon at i o'clock, when the men and women filed out on their way home from work. He handed to each a large four-page sheet, which was evidently intended to ad vertise a local business "college." The most interesting part of the circular seemed to be a picture of Hon. John Wanamaker, the Postmaster General, which was printed on the first page, in the midst of a two column speech, entitled "Golden Words; Address of Hon. John Wanamaker, Post master General of the United States and. the Prince of Business Men, aft tho Twenty third Annual Commencement Exercises at the Washington Business College, in Al haugh's Grand Opera House, on Tuesday, May 14, 1889; a Tribute to Business College Training by a Distinguished Citizen." In the speech the Hon. Postmaster Gen eral told the story about the bad little boy who put a button and not a nickle in the Blot, and reminded hf delirrhtad hparpra that some day when the machine was opened the lad who had proved untrue would be found out, but he did not explain how the particular boy who dropped the button and not the nickel in the slot would )e discovered. , But the most interesting thing about the advertisement was not the Wanamaker feature. The watchman said that the cir culars had been sent down from upstairs, and that he had understood at the time that he was to distribute them to the Treas ury clerks as they passed out, by the order of one of4he chief officials.

The truth of the matter is simply this: There never was a time in the his tory of the order when it was in better condi tion than It is at this moment There is no ouncomoe in tnis; it is an actual lact, as all the members know. When I took the office of Treasurer in conjunction with that of Secre tary, we had a debt ol about 112,000. My re port, made last April, showed that every cent of this had been paid off, that tha order did not owo a Denny, and that it owned real estate and other property worth' 5125,000. Does that look like a decline? Well, hardly. .Now, then, my last quarterly report, just finished but not yet is sued, shows an even more gratifying exhibit We are ont of debt and have a surplus. As to our membership, that, too. Is on the increase. It is true there was a time when we lost heav ily in that respect but we have recovered from that and are now going ahead. A membership of nearly 300,000 can baldly be called insignifi cant and that's what we have to-day.

About ten days ago, Burchard Hayes, representing the (Wabash Bailroad consolidation, paid Secre tary of State Eyan $52,000 for a certificate of incorporation, which was one-tenth of 1 per cent on the capital stock of the new syndi cate. The money was paid under protest. Mr. Hayes tendering, first a check for the amount that would have been due under the old law. Secretary Eyan construed the law and the full amount was paid. It was not turned into the State Treasury, as the time of the quarterly settlement has not arrived. To-day Mr. Hayes and the committee authorized to purchase the bonds ot the companies consolidated, and issne new bonds of the syndicate, petitioned for an in junction to restrain Eyan from paying the (52,000 into the State Treasury. The con stitutionality of the law will be the issne. Judge Evans, of the Common Pleas Court, granted the injunction and fixed the bond at $500. The injunction will stand until the meeting of the Supreme Court, Septem ber 16. The Wabash syndicate is the first corporation to test the law, and the result will beawaited with much interest.

The J udge then re-charged tnem as loiiows: chabge of the judge. Gentlemen: I had you brought out here to say something to you that I might have said before. I heard this moraine, from a gentle man in no wise connected with the grand jury I don't know, however, that It is in any way your fault from a gentleman, too, who never makes it his business to inquire Into what is going on before the grand jury, that there were certain proceedings had before you that have become public, and I had charged you specifi cally to keep everything secret You swore upon the Bible and you kissed the Bible if you did not it was the same thine that you would keep everything secret Besides. I Besides, 1 suppose you know yon are indictable for everything uiab guea uub uy your xauit. The matter I refer to is that It was rumored Jou desired to refer these matters to the ustioe of the Peace. Upon your oaths you said yon would make true presentment of all matters and things coming before you. I specially Instructed you to find according to the facts. Tb ere is a statute in the books here (whether it Is constitutional or not I don't know), authorizing the grand jury to refer certain misdemeanors to the Justices of the Peace. There is one thing, though these mat ters cannot be transferredto the Justices of tho Peace without the concurrence of the Court The Judge Is as much a part of the Court as you. hioheb than the legislature. The Constitution is a part of the supreme law.of the land, higher than any legislative act It says that a circuit court jhall haTO full jurisdiction In all matters, civil and criminal; in this Btate this court has original jurisdic tion in all criminal matters. No justice of the peace court -has got it This is the only court having it It has it by the- Constitution. All the Legislatures that might meet could not transfer it to any other court I want to say to you, genuemeni that It Is not in your power to transfer without the consent of the court I don't Suppose it was in the minds of the Legislature, or any intelligent member of it, that matters of this kind shall be referred to the Justice of the Peace. .It was Intended, I suppose, that petty cases, on account of their expense, and such matters, might be referred to the Justice of the Peacstf or trial. But the Court is here, and comes here simply for the matter of trying this case. As J n dge of tho Court, I would not per mit such a thine. So far as your deliberations tend in that direction, you. micht as well give them up. Just say if you want to transfer them to the Justice of the Peace, and there is a power in this Court to do without your services. NOT EXACTLY THEIB BUSINESS. I want to tell you, gentlemen, that It Is not your business to know what other persons think, about this, outside. The only lawyer who has any business beforo you is the District Attorney. Yon ought not to listen to anything except what your own minds suggest I think you may be laboring under a false Impression as to your power in this matter. If you are loboring under the idea that you can transfer it to the Justice of the Peace you are laboring under a great misapprehension, because It can. not be transferred, and will not be. You are selected by the Sheriff, and unless you obey my instructions I shall discharge you and direct the Sheriff to summon anew grand jury, and I shall inform him that unless he summons men who will obey my Instructions I will Impose a nne or i,vw upon nun. in investigating tnis matter, if you find there is nothing in it, and you say so, you will havo done your duty. This court costs 5100 per day. That Is no lit tle money for these poor people. Tho. sooner yon end this matter the better for all parties. I hope you will take counsel of your own pru dence, and if you don't want the counsel of tho District Attorney vou must not take It If you want any counsel" either take Ms or mine. Either has full authority to Instruct you in all these matters. 1 nope there will be NO MISUNDEBSTANDING.OE delay about this matter. 'I think under tho Consti tution this Court has jurisdiction and the Leg islature cannot transfer it I might possibly transfer it to the Justice ot the Peace. Cer tainly It would take my action to do so. If there is anything wrong about it you are not to blame. The responsibility is mine. I don't see how you can get ont of tho court myself, as everyone of you know there are a great many little cases come up in the Circuit Court, where fine or imprisonment is imposed, which are hardly worth the cost of a trial, and these are the cases which the Constitution intended should be referred to tho Justice ot the Peace. I wish you would make up jour mind one way or the other. If you want to transfer the case say so. if vou do not want to find bills siv so. This Court is amply big to do without your services. I expect my instructions to bo noticed. Gentlemen, yon are sworn to keep secret and that you will diligently inquire Into and true presentment make of all matters. Presentment is not information at all. Pre sentment is a Din ol indictments made by the grand jury. I want to ask you not to take any advice of anybody, just the advico of your selves. Gentlemen, I am much obliged for your attention. A subfbise to all. This was a surprise to all, and was re ceived by the defendants, their counsel and friends with bad grace and chagrin. This morning it was believed that all of the par ties charged would get off light Now 'the reverse opinion prevails. There is no other thought but what the fraud jury will Indict the parties. True ills are looked to be reported to-morrow against Sullivan and Kilrain, when it is supposed the legal fight will begin in earnest District Attorney Neville has telegraphed Attorney General Miller that it will be use less for the latter to come here, that he does not need his aid. It, is inferred by this that Sullivan and the others will plead guilty. L0WRI MEETS A REBUFF. Governor Foraker Refuses a Requisition for 8aperlatendentCarroU. rSrXCIALTXLXQBAXTO TUX DISPATCH.

BROADWAY BANDITS. A Money Chancer Attacked In HIi Office by Armed Men Looking Down the Mnzzlo of a Revolver One 'Robber Arrested. rSFXCUT, TELXOBAK TO THE DISPATCH.! New York, August 13. To have rob bers rush into a broker's office under the very shadow of Trinity Church, present a revolver of 44-caliber, and order hands up is a decided novelty in New York, but that is precisely what happened at 69 Broadway at 11:05 this forenoon. For the post 1G years Mr. G. Loeb has been dealing in for eign and domestic money in Lower Broad way. His office is in the Arcade building, which boasts, among other tenants, the Union Trust Company, the Manhattan Elevated Bailroad Company, and Mr. Jay Gould. Perhaps the robbers came there after Mr. Gould. The entrance to Mr. Loeb's office was down a flight of seven steps. At the bottom of the steps the double doors are kept wide open in warm weather. The show window is protected by a frail wire netting, a foot high only. The connter is about seven feet long. For six days in the week, and eight and a half hours in the day, Mr. Loeb can be found on the other side of the counter, and an assistant attend ing to the books and correspondence is usu ally handy by at the counter, a little further back, where he has a glass frame before him With a window in it Between Mr. Loeb and this assistant and under the counter, is a cash drawer with no bell on it. Mr. Loeb's clerk walked out of the office at 11 o'clock for lunch as usual. After five minutes Mr. Loeb saw two young men com ing down the stairway and" arose from his chair to greet them, supposing them to be customers. They came down the stairs rapidly. The moment they reached the floor Mr. Loeb'happened to turn his eyes toward the show window, when he next looked toward the young men he found himself looking square in the muzzle of a 44-caliber revolver. "Throw up yer hands," said the nice young man with the revolver, and Mr. Loeb made a Y ol himself instantly, but instead pt standing there.as the robber expected him to do, he jumped to the right and fell up against the show window. Then he began to bang to bangthe glass with his knuckles and call for help. Exasperated at this, the robber with the revolver said: "Yon shut up," and at the same moment pulled the trigger of his revolver. The ball cut away a foid of Mr. Loeb's shirt over his shoulder and buried itself in the wooden frame be neath the show window. The other bandit made a break for the money drawer, but found it empty. They were interrupted by the crowd which the revolver had gathered and did not see a pile of coin and notes on shelves within reach. They bolted out of the door, bnt one who called himself 'William Trainer ran into' a policeman's arms and was arrested. He said he had lived in Chicago, was a clerk, but had been in the prize ring. TWO PRISONERS GOHfi SOYf. One Went Oat to Caleb the Other, and Is Now Missing. rsrXCTAX. TELEGRAM TO TBE! DISrATCH.l New Castle, August 13. As was stated in these dispatches yesterday, Sam Huston escaped from the New Castle jail'in a mys terious manner. Another prisoner named Dan Carson, a notorious tough about tho city, informed the Sheriff yesterday that he had been made a confidant of by Huston, and that he knew exactly where Huston was going. Carson said he would go along and point out the house in which the escaped prisoner was hiding. The Sheriff believed Carson and the two went to Enon Valley. 14 miles from New Castle. Carson came to a house which he said was the one in which Huston would be found. At-the suggestion of the Sheriff Carson started for the house, and as he got out of sight this was the last seen of prisoner No. 2. The parties who reside in the house said that Carson walked right past and when he had gone a short distance started on a run. The Sheriff returned to Newcastle early this evening with no clue to tile whereabouts of either of the prisoners. DISASTROUS BTORit IN KANSAS.

Tests at Ealtliaore and BaSala are Froaoaneed Partly Successful. Philadelphia physicians have made ex periments showing that the alleged effect of the new elixir are largely imaginary. Two reporters are in bed as the result of a test Experiments continue to bo made all over the country. rSrXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. Philadelphia, August 13. A new theory accounting for the apparent effects of the Brown-Sequard animal tonic, or elixir of life, has been developed by the experi ments of Dr. Joseph Leidy, Jr., of the Penn- . aylvania Hospital for the Insane, and Dr. W. G. Howell, of Tioga. These gentlemen, while not condemning the elixir as a hum bug as yet, have been led to ask wheth er these results are not due to imagination... Dr. Leidy first injected the preparation recommended by Brown-Sequard into a man 90 years old, whose only 'ailment is general debility due to age. The man, within five minutes after the treatment, declared that he could read with much more ease and rapidity than he could before, and on the following day he a veered-that he conld walk with much less difficulty. The physician then injected into his arm a preparation of nothing more than water and salt, and the nonogenarian reported the same felicitions effects in a still greater degree than he had received from the first preparation. Pre cisely the same facts confronted Dr. Leidv in several other cases, in all of which the patients thought that the second dose was the much vaunted "elixir." effect of niAorjrATiojr. au conversation to-day Dr. .Leidv in conversation to-day Dr. Leidv stanced the well-known fact that the imag ination is a potent factor in the treatment of ailments. "I have often eiven hvrjo. dermic injections of water to people suffer ing pain or sleeplessness," he said, "and generally with the jfrompt result of driving away the pain or the insomnia, a result due entirely to the belief on the part of the pa tient that the water is a medicine sure to do its work." The reporters who subjected themselves out of curiosity to the Brown-Sequard elixir, at the Medico-Chirurgical Hospital, yesterday, are both laid up for repairs to day, and one of them is considerably scared about his condition. He sent a summons for Prof. Henry C. Boenning, who administered the emulsive preparation, and upon concluding his experiments to-day, Prof. Boenning repaired at once to the house and found the patient, who was enjoy ing the best of good health and spirits yes terday, in bed. His face wore a woe-begone expression and he showed traces of having slept very little during the night 'His symptoms were severe pains in the head, soreness in the limbs and high fever. ' He sorely regretted having had anything to do with the new life-giving remedy. TJN DEE THE "WEATHEE. The other newspaper man who tried it failed to report for duty also, and inquiry developed the fact that he was compelled to keep his bed to-day with a high fever, pains in the head, a painful couiusiou of ideas and severe pains in the groin and its vicinity. This young man is also badlv scared, and reproaches himself for his folly. The result of the experiment with the newspaper men made Prof. Boenning ex tremely cautious to-day, and he declined to administer the injection to any patient until he first explicitly stated that it was at his own personal risk. "We do not know what this thing is yet," said Prof. Boenning. "We only know that it comes recommended from a very high source, and that its results so far as learned have been in a number of coses beneficial. What its influence may be iu any specific case we cannot telL We must have it distinctly understood that we advise no one to undergo this treatment" A POWERFUL STIMULANT. The Result of a Baltimore Test of the Mew Discovery. Baltimore, August 13. Physicians here think the new liquid, Brown-Sequard'B so-called elixir of life, is nothing more than a powerful stimulant which might, if properly used, do much good,v for instance, in tiding a patient over a dan gerous crisie. Dr. W. H. Brooks ha3. experimented on an Irishman 60 years oldi who was run down by rheumatism. The material used was from a healthy lamb ancL diluted with water. He put into the man's, arm about 11 a. it. three injections of at dram and a half each about the temperature.: of a man's blood. In ten minntes the man, who had no idea, he was having a new remedy tried uponr him, acted like a man who was "feelinc pretty good" from a drink of whisky. His;, tongue got loose, he talked in the happiest: way, his pulse became accelerated 20 or 30 beats, and he asserted that he had improved wonderfully. There was no action like that of a man really intoxicated. The exhilara tion lasted three hours, when the patient went off into an easy sleep, and when ha awoke said he was feeling much better. Only a Strong Tonic. Buffalo, August 13. Experiments with the Brown-Sequard elixir, by doctors of this city, lead them to believe that it is a strong tonic, but not a panacea. THE RAILROADS WIN.
