DECIDES FOR HEARST New York Supreme Cous't Justice Sustains Attorney General in Mat ter of Rehearing. Albany, N. Y., Feb. 16.-Supreme Court Justice Fitts late today handed down a decision sustaining the posi tion of Attorney General Wm. S. Jackson in the matter of the proceed ings in the interest of William R. Hearst- to oust G. B. McClellan from the office of Mayor of New York City. Justice Fitts decided that the attor ney general had authority to rehear the application of Hearst for leave to begin quo warranto proceedings against McClellan, which was denied by Mr. Jackson's predecessor, Attor ney General Meyer. Justice Fitts also denied the motion of McClellan's attorney to have the attorney general adjudged in con tempt of court on the ground that in bringing the action upon his own in itiative to oust McClellan, he violat ed the spirit, if not the letter of a temporary injunction of Justice Fitts forbidding him, pending the hearing, to reopen the matter of Hearst's quo warranto application. After summarizing the history of the Hearst-McClellan litigation, Jus tice Fitts says: "The attorney general of this state can .maintain an action upon his own information or upon complaint of a private person. The authority and power to be exercised by him is in its nature official and executive and not judicial in the sense of finally settling and determining the rights of individ uals with reference to the matter in controversy. "The process of this court cannot be used to connect the actions of the at torney general in the exercise of his prerogative." Justice Fitts denies McClellan's mo tion to make absolute the temporary injunction and vacates the latter with $50 costs in favor of Jackson. In denying judgment, Justice Fitts declared that Jackson had full power, in spite of the pending injunction t3 institute the ouster action against McClellan. He says: "In instituting this action against the relator, McClellan, the attorney violated none of the proceedings of the alternate writ of prohibition issued out of this court on January 5;, 1907. The acts there prohibited had refer ence only to an action sought to be instituted on the complaint filed by the respondent, Hearst. "The attorney general has com menced this action upon his own in formation; that the statute permits him to do so, and his action with ref erence to the same cannot be con trolled by process of this court."

As a usual thing a remedy that has immediate action contains powerful drugs that should be used sparingly. This is one of the reasons why the ordinary tablets that are sold for coughs and colds should not be taken by, people with a weak heart, as they have a dangerous stimulating effect. When Hyomei, however, is breathed quick relief is obtained in a natural way. Its healing medication goes right to the spot where the disease germs are present, at once soothing and heal ing the irritated mucous membrane. The action in this way is similar to a spreading a soothing salve upon a 8 burn. No other medicine for the cure of coughs, colds and bronchial troubles t is as rational as Hyomei. Breathing t it through the neat pocket inhaler I which, goes with every outfit, it can be used either in the nose or mouth, thus t getting full medication into the nasal I passages or the throat and lungs as i desired. It gives almost instant re- 1 lief in all affections of the bronchial I tubes, and is guaranteed to break up I a cold in 10 hours. This guarantee is i given by one of the best known drug g!sts in Billings, the Chapple Drug company, with every Hyomel outfit they sell. A complete Hyomei outfit, consist ing of a bottle of Hyomei, an inhaler 50 cents; the inhaler lasts a lifetime. or purse, and a medicine dropper, costs but one dollar, with a guarantee E that if it does not give satisfaction the money will be refunded. Should extra bottles of Hyomei be needed they can be obtained for only that can be carried in the vest pocket PAID UP'CAPITAL . . . . . $ 10,000 SURPLUS - - - 30,000 DEPOSTS ,- * * ,7.o70,000 DIRECTORS: P.
