St. Petersburg. March 28.-Stung by
the wholesale criticism latoly heaped
upon the war office for it? unprepared
ness and incapacity in providiug the
Manchurian army with men, guns and
munitions, the army organ to-day lays
bare what hos been done since the open

From these it appears that up to March
12 thofjwar office tins despatched 13,087
officers, 701,407 men, 110,408 horses, 1,521

The Election ol Town Offioert-Communion
Services at the Methodist Church.
Seneca, Maroh 28.-Soneca'8 municipal
election yesterday passed off quietly.
The following names, composing the
ticket, were elected: Mayor, F. M. Cary;
Aldermen. J. T. Lawrence, W. J. Lun
ney, T. M. Lowery, Whltner Livingston.
A better selection could not have been
made, and our citizens are congratulated
upon the wise choice mado. In view of
the fact that the retiring oounoil has left
notable and substantial monument? to
its administration, it is up to tho counoll
eleot to keep the ball moving, which, in
the minds of a livo citizenship, is a fore
gone conclusion.
Yesterday, at the Sonooa Cotton Mills,
Luther Hyde died from the effects of a
wound made by George Thompson, of
Newry, in an altercation wbioh occurred
between these parties at the Seneca Cot
ton Mill on Saturday, the 18tb instant.
The Coroner held an inquest yesterday,,
the verdict of the jury being in accord
with tho above facts, Thompson gave
up and is in jail.
II. M. Richardson is building n large
cistern in tho rear of the lot on which
the Palmetto House is located, which
will be used for sanitary purposes by the
hotel. The larg? well supplies water for
other purposes.
It has been said that the traveling mon
are "complaining that the hotel business
is overdone-here." It occurs to us that
they (tho traveling men) are the last mon
on earth to discourage enterprises of
this nature, knowing that in this, as well
as other trades, competition truly is the
life of trade 1 And as long as no kiok
comes from the competitors we advise
thom, m the language of brer rabbit, to
"lay low and say notbin'.M
Others say that business in other lines
is over-done in Seneca. As long as there
aro no failures and everybody seems to
be making a comfortable living, we
fail to see how business can bo ovor-done.

A Chicago Alderman Owes His Election to J
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
"I oan heartily and conscientiously re
commend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
for affeotions of the throat and lungs,'*
says Hon. John Sbeniok, 220 So. Peoria
St., Chicago. "Two years ago, during a
Colitical campaign, I caught oold after
oing overheated, whioh irritated my
throat and I was dually compelled to
stop, Os I could not speak aloud. In my
extremity a friend advised roe to UBO
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I took
two doses that afternoon and could not
believe my senses when I found tho next
morning tho inflammation had largely
subsided. I took several doses that day,
kept right on talking through the cam
paign, and 1 thank this medicine that I
won my seat in the council." Thia remedy
is for sale by J. \V. Hell, Walhalla, and
W. J. Lunney, Seneca.
