t THE NEWS-HERALD. A SI ESTABLISHED 1837. Entered at Post-offlce, Hlllsboro, Ohio, as secoud-olftss matter. HILLSBORO, HIGHLAMD ,CO., O., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1891. VOL. 54 NO. 30 X Dr. Keelej's Treatment for' Drunken ness. We would gladly call tho attention of our readers and the public generally to ihe cure of drunkenness by tho Keeley ifethod. Many men who hao become jTSislaved by the liquor habit, either by heredity or otherwise, would gladly es cape from the thralldom of their appetite by any practical way. This method of r, Keeley's is claimed to ue nn ciiectuai 'cure for drunkenness. The Doctor pro .ceedain the right way by classing the Honor habit as a disease. 1 or twenty- Alive years Dr. Keeley has been a resident i,t,A iirantiritii? nhvsician of Dwicht, 111.. ' and until quite recently has been little known or heard of outside of ins own home and practice, but has always en joyed tho respect and confidence of his neighbors and has been a member in good standing of the county and State medical societies. . Ho has long been seeking a cure for drunkenness, a branch of medical study which his father and grandfather zealously pursued before him. For several years the newspapers published near Dr. Keeley's home-have contained accounts of his having cured, by the use of double chloride of gold, men who have long been regarded at hopeless drunkards. About a year ago Mr. Joseph Megill, the venerable editor of the Chicago Tribune, made an exam ination of this new 'method of treatment anddecided on a practical test of the alleged cure. He selected several men in Chicago who were hopelessly addict ed to the habit of drinkiug liquor, and wero wrecks from long-continued intem perance. Theso men, at his own ex penso, ho sent to Dwight for treatment. The result was so satisfactory that he endorsed tho methods of Dr..Keeley in an editorial in his paper. The endorse ment of this cure in the Chicago Trihune attracted general attention, and many hopeless men traveled to Dwight in search of something which, before, hud seemed to be beyond their reach. yTho impulse of each man to conceal Ws identy is soon lost, and the great majority are content to settle down ac knowledging that inebriety is a diseaao which they are trying .to core. Each lA-.K , nuur. tan enueavore to eucuumgw mo unn mer, and to give his best to the feh wship and comradeship'pf the commu nity. The idea among them seems to be that'this form of disease may come as typhoid fever comes, and its cure is a matter for congratulation without any concealment whatever. Formerly the patients boarded at the various houses in tho village, but lately a hotel has been erected. A new patient registered at the Keeley Institute, and given the routine of treatment. This in cludes a bi-chlorido of gold mixture, which he must take once every two hours, and four times every day, at stated hours, he must fall in lino with the other patients and with bared arm receive a hypodermic injection of a medicine, the nature of which Dr. Keeley has not announced to tho world, but which he explains to his patients as a "bracer," and also to regulate the eflecta of the bi-chloride of gold. His method of preparing this gold mixture he retains as a secret. It is not necessary for a man to be drinking or under the influence of liquor when the treatment is begun, but if a new-comdr is drunk when be arrives Dr. Keeley can sober him up in from twelve to thirty-six hours, so that he will never want to tasio a drop of an intoxicant again ao long as ho lives. A writer in Harpers' Weekly gives an instance of a man that he met at Dwight, which shows the working of tho system. He says : "Ono of the gentlemen with whom I talked had been at tho asylum for inebriates at Fort Hamilton for ten weeks before he went to Dwight. He had also, he said, been to other places of the same kind and the only encourage ment he ever got was that he himself could euro himself if ho would only stop 1 drinking. The difficulty with that was, The said, that whenever I began a spree, I never meant to take but one drink, to make mo feel better. At least that is what I said to myself, though I knew I was Ivincr all tho time. After I had been at Dwjght, undergoing treatment, for a week, there came a miserable day rain, cold winds and general gloom. I was depressed and blue, and if I'd been in New York I would have taken what I so much craved, with the inevit able results of a spree with all its wretch edness and degredation. So I went to see Dr. Keeley and told him how I felt ; he got out a bottle and gave me a large glass of whiskey, 1 protested against taking it, but ho insisted, and I swallowed it. He then instructed me to come again in the evening for another drink. Here was a test of treatment. In my previous condition, feeling as I did that day, the first drink would havo been followed by an almost immediate desire for more liquor, but the afternoon passed away and I had no craving. In the evening Dr. Keeley again handed me the whiskey. I declined, but he again insisted. I really did not want it; I ask'ed for no more, and from that evening until now I have never felt any longing for liquor. This was from a man who has been known to me for fifteen years, and who in his pro fession has been a man of mark even longer. There has been, in Dwight, a bi-chloride of gold club formed, and in August there were more than 1,000 members. These names remain on the list for life or until they can no longer report that they abstain from drinking liquor. Since the organization of this club only' one per cent of those joining it have had their names removed on ac count of a lapse into intemperate habits. This club aims to keep track of those who have been at Dwight, that statistics may be gathered as to tho lasting value of the treatment. The members wear a blue and gold button, quite as conspicu ous as the button of the Loyal Legion, and I actually saw one of tho Club Badges worn by a New York man of great fashion, and his millionaire father seems more proud of his son's recovery from the dissolute habits into whicii ho had fallen than of anything else in the world." Dr. Keeley announces that by similar treatment ho can cure persons addicted to the opium habit. It takes longer to do this, but of his success ho has no doubt whatever. Women as well as men are treated for drunkenness and the opium habit. Women, however, are visited privately and are treated with all due regard for feminine publicity. Dr. Keeley has recently returned from a trip to Europo where he went for the purpose of gathering statistics on drunkenness. He was interviewed by a Mail and Express reporter at tho Fifth Avenue Hotel while in Now York, and he said: "Tho lack of drunkenness on the Con tinent I believe to be due to the fact that so much beer and light wine is drunk there, which in a measure vacci nates the people against drunkenness, as exhibited in Great Britain and the United States. This effect is accomplish ed, I believe, by .giving the people who, use beer and light wines a power to re sist alcohol." The Doctor has no inten"-' tion of makingtheformulaforhis "cure" public. He thinks there may be danger in making known the formula in that ir responsible physicians may not prepare it with due care. He added : "If the medical profession think I have not made my claim good then the secret will never be known. But as soon as reputable medical men agree that my discovery is sound, I will reveal its composition and the method of its manufacture." Whether the discovery is ever revealed or not, and the' cure does cure, DrKeeley will be one of the most wonderful beings in existence. Dr. Keely is not discouraged because now and then a graduate of his Dwight sanitarium relapses. Concerning Col. Flavel Scott Mines, L. L. D., who boomed Dr. Keely in the North American Review, after graduating from Dwight' and who ten days ago started on a spree 'which ended in his death in a workhouse on Blackwell's Island, Dr. Keeley said : "Oh, he was one of the unfortunate 5 per cent, who cannot bo cured. Ho had been such a hard drinker that perhaps he had be come deranged and iri a fit of insanity took to di inking and died of alcoholism " Opie Bead, however, explained Col. Mines in this waj : "The man's mind was wrong when he first visited Dwight. Continual sleeping in alcohol had made him a pitiful object. IIo would walk for hours with his hands clasping his head and his eyes staring into space in a fixed way. Remorse and the shame' of his past lifo drove him insane, I think, and Dwight can never be called a placo for the euro of the insane. His most briliiuut and masterly article, copied all over the world, upon the bichloride treatment was not the work of an ordi nary mind. Then came the frenzied insane fit, the first drink and the desire to sink into oblivion. That is. the only way to explain why such u great man as Col, Mines mentally was could suc cumb to what he knew was his worst enemy." I Was a Fool. Yes, they Said I was a fool not to try Sulphur Bitters for Rheumatism, from which I had suffered over two years; but I had tried so many doctors and medicines without getting relief that I was discouraged. I am now on my fourth bottle and almost cured. I was a fool that I didn't try that wonderful remedy betore. C. G. Pratt, Manchesler,N. II. . P. Kramer's German Liniment.

From our regular correspondent. Washington, D. C , Nov. 13th, 1891. The present administration will be re membered long by the' news gathering fraternity of Washington on account of the two very decided "beats" it got on the watchful bojs. Tho first was the announcement in the President's mess age to Congress last December that Min ister Mizner had been recalled, and tho last was announcement this week, while arguing the Sayward case before the Supremo Court, by Attorney-Gener.il Miller that the arbitration treaty with Great Britian had been concluded, and only required the ratification of the Sen ate to become binding. Mr. Harrison has never been an editor ; but he cer tainly has the news instinct, so neces sary in the making of a successful editor. Tho argument has been concluded in tho Sayward case, and the public looks forward with much interest to the de cision. What that decision will be no man can tell, but the opinion prevails largely here that it will sustain the position taken by the administration, i. e., that the question of jurisdiction over Behring's sea is a political one, and be longs properly to tho President and Congress and not to the judicial branch of our'Government. The National Council of Administra tion of the G. A. R , presided over by Commander-in-Chief Pal men, held a most harmoniuus meeting here this week and decided that the national encamp ment should be held here the first week in October next year. The members of the council are enthusiastic over the prospects for the grandest encampment ever held. Gen. Palmer says: "I imag ined we reached flood tide in Boston, in fact I said at Boston that we should never again see so many Grand Army men in line, but I want to take that back. The tVashington encampment is going to eclipse all others." That Secretary Foster knows how to do a graceful thing was shown by his or der directing that No. 1 of tho new ser ies of $2. certificates, which will beshort Jy issued, should be sold' to the widow of the late Secretary Windom, whose portrait it bears. Although the National committee does not meet to decide upon the date and place for holding the next Republican national convention uutil tho 23 inst., there are already representatives of a number of cities here, working up senti ment to help them influence the mem bers of the National Committee. Chair man Clarkson, who was hero this week looking after some arrangements con nected with the committee meeting, says that ho has not yet mado up his mind in favor of any city and does not expect to do so until he hears what all of those competing have to offer, but he said that if Chicago is named her news papers will have to make promises that all of the candidates shall havo fair play in their columns, which they did not have at the last convention there. The fact that Chicago will bo in the turmoil of getting ready for the World's Fair will, it is thought, operate against her getting the convention, but Senator Cullom and others who are looking out for Chicago's iuterests here, says that argument is nonsense and will influence nobody. San Francisco, Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago and Tacoraa are in the field for the West, while Philadelphia and New York are representing the East. The President has expressed no preference, but rumor has it that he favors either Omaha or Minneapolis. Being a candidato for Speaker has brought about a very noticeable chango in Representative Springer, of Illinois. Formerly ho was always ready to-express an opinion on any question of public in terests, .now, he declines to express opinions upon anything about which thero are differences in his party. Ue confesses, however, that he does not see how tho Democratic House can cut down tho annual appropriations to any mark ed extent without crippling some work of great public importance or reducing pensions. This is significant in view of the charges of extravagance which Mr. Springer's party has been making againbt the last Congress. Mr. Mills, another candidate for Speaker, is opposed to vot ing any more money to the Navy, except to complete work already begun. Mc Millin, also a candidato, says he believes in adding to our navy the best and fast est vessels in the world and in perfecting our coast defence. Tt will be observed that there is a marked difference in tho opinions oi the two last, and Mr. Mills is likelv to discover that he has not im proved his chances of being elected Speaker by cxpressingsuch un-American sentiments. The Supreme Court has postponed un til November 30, the hearing of the argu ments in the case invoking the Consitu tionality of the McICinloy tariff act and also that of the i iht of tho Speaker of tho Houso to count a quorum. Four of the candidates for Speaker of I the Houso arc here, but om ing to tho small number of Representatives in town they are not making much progress with their campaign. . An 0pin Letter. To tlie Honorable John Slisrman, United StaUs Senator, ilamjield, Ohio: Sin: For nearly six years past the State of Ohio has been disgraced by the occupancy in the Senate of the nation of a seat said to havo been purchased by its occupant, a citizen of Ohio. The cnarge nas never been reluted and we have borne the stigma of being repre sented in the National Councils by one under charges of corruption. Many people say, and many believe, that had you opposed more vigorously the seating of this man we would not have incurred this reproach. Many say that your motives were selfish and that you did not desire to havo a colleague of your own party, but wished to have ex clusive control of senatorial patronago and influence in your State. We do not make such assertions and cannot believe them but the time is rapidly approaching when by your actions you can silence such charges for ever, or on the other hand furnish such corroborative evidence as will satisfy all that they have been and are true. In December next one Calvin S. Brice will present his credentials and ask to be admitted as a member of the Senate of the United States. He will come "under charges ; " the one that he is not a citizen of Ohio, the other that his election was secured by the corrupt use of money. It will thon be your duty and it will be demanded of you by yout constitu ents, that you perform this duty to rise in your place and move for a full, fair, exhaustive investigation ofj these charges, audit will bo your further duty to exercise every faculty of your being to push suchlan investigation to its ut- , most, leaving no stone unturned, no corner unsearched. Should the.Caliph of Bagdad or the Rajah of Cawnp'ore1- take a notion to come toOhioiand purchase legislators enough to Beoure his election to the Senate' of the United States there would be no hesitation on the part of Senators td deny him membership in their body but his-claim would be just as valid as is that of Mr. Brlce. The people of Ohio havo been insulted by the incumbency of one of her own citi zens with a tainted name; they protest utterly against being .represented by a gentleman from the State of Nero York with a name eyen worse clouded, and it is for you, in large part, to protect your State from this threatened added dis grace. Should you succeed in so doing you will quiet all tongues againtt jou and your fellow citizens will unhesitatingly call jou to succeed yourself in thu body where you have so long honored us by occupying a seat, and as your colleague you will have the eloquent, vigorous, fearless mau who has served his country so well in war, his State so well in peace and his party so brilliantly for so manv years Joseph Benson Foraker. Should you lack vigor and fail to pre vent fraud from being consummated through negligence or lack of persistent effort on your part the formpr charges will be tauen us proven and the people of your State will demand of their Rep resentatives that you shall be allowed to step down and out and a successor chosen who will not flinch when duty calls. The News Herald is an obscure coun try news paper1 but such papers voice tho sentiments of our people. The late "election showed that the strength of the Republican party of Ohio lies outside of the great centres of population and this backbono of tho party will not longer bend to bear the load of shame that bribery brings. The plain folks of Ohio and the old soldiers of Ohio believe in Ben Foiaker and tho young Republicans of Ohio follow him with as implicit con fideure as thai shown by the boys in blue a quarter of a century ago when they unquestiouiugly followed your illustrious brother to the seu. These now propose to have him occupy a wider, riclur field of usefulness than luaelo- fore, either as your colleague or successor ; uluch of these xt will be depends mainly upon yourself. Hoping and believing that you will not fail to serve your State and country faithfully, honestly and fearlessly in this emergency, we remain Yours Very Truly, Tjik News-Hebald. , To cure constipation, sick beadache and.dy.spepsia Simmons Liver Regulator has no equal. No Substitutes For Rxyal Baking Powder. The Royal" is shown by all tests, official, scientific, and prac tical, stronger, purer, and better in every' way than all other Baking Powders. Its superiority is privately acknowledged by other manufac turers, and well known by all dealers. If some grocers try to sell another taking powder in place of the "Royal," it is because of the greater profit. This of itself is good evidence of the superiority of the " Royal." To give geeater profit the other must be a lower cost powde and to cost less it must be made with cheaper and inferior materials, and thus, though selling for the same, give less value to the consumer. LOOK with suspicion upon every attempt to paftn-off upon you any baking powder in place if the "Royal." There is no substitute for the "ltoyal."

Such modesty is becoming, and is in truthful recognition of tho fact. This is said with the full knowledge that Major McKinley is a favorite and has no ene mies other than those who denoting, him for his work in benefiting the peoplo. But great as his popularity has been and is to-day among those who can look be yond selfish considerations, it must bend mitted that the Republicans won on the issues and not the man. In no speech and, we fully believe. in nnrrivnt utter ance, did Major McKinley make a request lor votes Daseil on his personal friend ship. He fought an open, manly and honest battle, and winning it, he is en titled to all credit. We havo no intention of going into heroics concerning the man who will be the next Governor of Ohio, but we can not resist thedesire to say that Major McKinley, by hisconductand bearing in this campaign, by his good will toward his opponent and by tho general charac teristics which stamp him as a sincere man of the people, has clinched the good opinion in which ho has been held. But few who were in Chicago three years and a half ago will ever forget the impression ho made when, in the gieat convention, befoie ten thousand pairs of eyes, he as serted hN character by demanding that no more votes should be cast for him. In that he was modest, loyal and sincere. His subsequent career has but confirmed the estimato of his worth, and as a crown ing example to all men his friends can point to his words and actions in the weary days aud weeks of the campakn ju6t passed. Major McKinley will be esteemed when he closes his odraiuistratipn aa Governor. We say this with all confi dence. He will be the converse of the leopard if he is anything but firm, just and wise.
