Collector Jackson says that no action can be taken in the matter until forgery is actually committed. THE OLD WAY Seattle, June 27. W. D. Doolittle, of ,Irvington, N. J., has arrived here after undergoing a series of fearful experi ences during the past year. He was one of those unfortunate ones who attempted to enter the Alaskan gold fields over the Edmonton route. After an unsuccessful effort to get in he returned to Telegraph creek out of food and just able to make his wants known. Speaking of the scenes witnessed by him at Telegraph creek, he said : "I have witnessed people coming in with hands and feet frozen, starving and suffering with scurvy, all telling the same story of hardship and suffering in the Liard country. A party of fourteen men was on its way to Telegraph creek. Five led to break a trail through the snow, and the othei nine followed. A heavy snow storm came up and the nine be hind became lost. No trace of them has since been found. "A vi eek before I left for Seattle men arrived from Teslin with the news that three men had been found dead in a cabin at Moose Lake. They all died from scurvy. They were two Allison brothers, of Kent, England, and Carter, of New Zealand. Nine hundred dollars was found in the cabin. "The latter part of May, Porter, the government agent at Telegraph creek, sent in a relief party into the Liard dis trict, consisting of two Indian guides and four white men. They bad a ecow load ot provisions. It was reported just before I left that the scow had reached the district and distributed the food to the needy people, of whom there were about 500. "I cannot describe the terrible suffer ing I endured on the trail, and it is a wonder to me that so many come out alive." "French Pete" Missing. San Francisco, June 27. P. E. Dev ille,the well-known Alaskan miner, com monly called "French Pete," the dis coverer of the celebrated Tread well mine near Juneau, has been missing since his arrival in this city a week ago laEt Sun day, lie intended to go to the California hotel, where mail and other matter were waiting for him, but none of his friends have seen him since he landed, and a search for him has proved unavailing. Would Not Buffer So Again for Fifty Times Its Plica. I awoke last night with severe painB in my stomach. I never felt so badly in all my life. . When I came down to work this morning I felt so weak I could hardly work. I went to Miller & McCurdy's drug store and they recommended Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar rhoea Remedy. It worked like magic and one dose fixed me all right. It certainly is the finest thing I ever used for stomach trouble. I shall not be without it in my home hereafter, for I should not care to endure the sufferings of last night again for fifty times its price. G. H. Wilson, Liveryman, Bur eettstown.

It has been discovered that two dies, similar to those need by the United States and British of' ficiala at Hong Kong in stamping the certificates of identification given to Chinese merchants and students, bo Of Treating Dyspepsia and Indigestion by Dieting a Dangerous and Useless One. We Bay the old way, but really it is a very common one at the present time and many dyspeptics and physicians as well consider the first step to take in attempting to cure indigestion is to diet, either by selecting certain foods and re jecting others or to greatly diminish the quantity usually taken ; in other words the starvation plan is supposed by many to be the first essential. The almost certain failure of the starvation cure has been proven time and again, but still the moment dyspep sia makes its appearance a coarse of dieting Is at once advised. All this is radically wrong. It is foolish and unscientific to recommend dieting to a man suffering from dyspepsia, be cause indigestion itself starves every organ, every nerve and every fibre in the body. What the dyspeptic wants is abundant nutrition, which means plenty of (rood, wholesome well-cooked food, and some thing to assist the weak stomach to di gest it. This is exactly the purpose for which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are adapted and thia is the method by which they cure the worst cases of dyspepsia; in other words the patient eats plenty of wholesome food and Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets digests it for him. In thia way the system is nourished and the overworked stomach rested, because the tablets will digest the food whether the stomach works or not. One of these tablets will digest 3,000 grains of meat or eggs. Your druggist will tell you that Stuart's Tablets is the purest and safest remedy for etomach troubles and every trial makes one more friend for this ex cellent preparation.

Ship Bringing Plague to America. San Fbancisco, June 27. Information of the presence of the bubonic plague on the Nippon Maru, bound for this port and now in quarantine at Honolulu, has caused no alarm among the quarantne authorities here. There is no expecta tion that the disease will enter San Fran cisco. The federal system of quarantine has not yet been established at Honolulu, but there is a representative of this gov ernment attached to the American con sulate there whose business it is to see that bo far as thia country is concerned the quarantine laws are properly enforced. Last fall I sprained my left hip while handling some heavy boxes. The doctor I called on eaid at first it was a slight strain and would soon be well, but it grew worse and the doctor then said I had rheumatism. It continued to grow worse and I could hardly get around to work. I went to a drug store and the druggist recommended me to try Cham berlain's Pain Balm. I tried it and one half of a 50 cent bottle cured me entire ly. I now recommend it to all my, friends. F. A. Babcock, Erie, Pa.

VANDERBILT'S NEW PURCHASE It May Mean New Transc outinental . Line. PORTLAND WOULD BE A TERMINUS Combination Would Dave Boston, New York and Portland for Its Termi nal, and Would Include Union Pa cific and Oregon Short Line. New York, June 27. The Tribune says: The report that the New York Central has come to an agreement with the Boston & Albany railroad, by which the New York Central would lease the Boston & Albany for a term of 999 years and guarantee 8 per cent on the. stock, was not a surprise either in railroad cir cles or in Wall street. That the lease is practically closed waa confirmed from a trustworthy source yesterday. From one of the most influential rail road officials of the Vanderbilt system, some facta' were gleaned about the nego tiations to secure control of the Boston & -Albany. For more than two years William K. Vanderbilt and his friends have been working to get control of the Boston & Albany, as it ia the Central's natural outlet to Boston for ita western trains. About a year ago Dr. W. S. Webb, president of the Wagner Palace Car Company, started in to buy Boston & Albany stock. As this stock is largely dealt in in Boston, he authorized a Bos ton broker to buy all the stock he could find in the Boston market and did not stipulate a price, but said to get it. In about ten days his broker sent word that he had. secured something over a thousand shares and wanted to know if be should go ahead, as the price had gone op fifty points in these few sales. Then a stop was put to that. The stock was so closely held that many thought control could neyer be secured. Despite this, persistent work has been done, and is said to have been crowned with success. The general opinion in Wall etreet, al though no official confirmation of the transaction could be obtained, is in line with the information that the lease has virtually been effected and the view was taken that this New England arrange ment would before long be followed by the long-talked-of extension of the New York Central system to the Pacific coast from its present western terminus in Chicago, by consolidation with the Chi cago & Northwestern, the Union Pacific and the Oregon Short Line.
