THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1899 NO 66 OPERATIONS ARE SUSPENDED Caiapaip Will Cease Until Bat Weather is EnM, THE FILIPINOS GET A REST Meanwhile, Otis' Force Will Be In creased to 40,000 Men Before Fighting Is Resumed. Washington, June 28. Secretary Al ger, Adjutant Corbin and Colonel Bird, assistant quartermaster - general in charge of transportation, had an bonr'a consultation with the president today relating to the question of reinforce ments for General Otis. A definite de cision was reached to continue recruit ing men at all the recruting stations, and Secretary Alger said after the con ference that General Otis would have 40,000 when the rainy season, closed for resumption of active operations. The enlistment are to be for eervice in the regular army and recruits are to be organized into regiments or assigned to regiments already formed after enlist meat. No organizations are to be ac cepted if sufficient recruits can be ob tained by regular enlistment. General Corbin said the enlistments would be for three years. Arrangements are to be made at onca for increasing the transportation necessary to get these additional troops to the Philippines. The decision to reinforce General Otis by the end of the rainy eeason ia inter preted to mean that active campaigning will cease until the bad weather ends. By remaining quiescent under good shel ter during the rainy season it ia hoped that the health of our troops will be conserved and the danger front climatic fevera reduced to a mininum. General Otis haa cabled to the war department that he has .the skeleton organizations of two of three regiments which he pro poses to raise in the Philippines. At the war department this is said to mean that General Otis haa the officers for these regiments selected and that they are now to be filled with enlisted men. The war department eaya that the recruits now being enlittol cannot be u?ed for the volunteer army, although it would be an easy matter to transfer these men with their own consent t the volunteer service if it should be deter mined to raise additional trooje.

The police think that this small fortune is the property of Mrs. Walbonger Wackerle, an aged German woman who is now a patient ac the in eane asylum.

President McKinley'a projected trip to the Pacific coast, which had been looked forward to in anticipation of en joyment to himself and improvement in Mrs. McKinley'a condition, has been abandoned. His trip to Minnesota has also been abandoned. The unfavorable turn in Mrs. McKin ley'a condition is attributed to a cold, which ehe contracted just before ehe left Washington. She ia never strong and this cold seemed to weaken her to such an extent as to make it advisable to avoid the exertion which would have been necessary had ehe remained away as long as it had been intended. THE OLD WAY Of Treating Dyspepsia and Indigestion by Dieting a Dangerous and Useless One. Reduced Rates to M. E. A. He Will Not Be Able to Come Eyen as Far as Minnesota on Account of Mrs. McKinley's Health. New York, June 28. A special to the Herald from Washington eays: The state of Mrs. McKinley's health at this We say the old way, but really it is a very common one at the present time and many dyspeptics .and pbyeicians 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 ia 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 course of dieting -is at once advised. All tbisia radically wrong. It is foolish and unscientific to recommend dieting to a man suffering from dyspepsia, be cause indigestion itself atarves every organ, every nerve and every fibre in the body. What the dyspeptic wants is abundant nutrition, which means plenty of good, wholesome well-cooked food, and some thing to assist the weak stomach to di gest it. This is exactly the purpose for which Stuart'a Dyspepsia Tablets are adapted and this is the method by which they cure the worst casea of dyspepsia; in other words the patient eata plenty of wholeeome fcod and Stuart'a Dys pepsia Tablets digests it for him. In this way the system ia nourished and the overworked stomach rested, because the tablets will digest the food whether the stomach works or cot. One of these tableta will 'digest 3,000 grains of meat or egga. Your druggist will tell you that Stuart'a Tablets 13 the purest and safest remedy for etomach troubles and every trial makes one more friend for this ex cellent preparation.

NO ROOM FOR ALGER AJmiiiislralion DistarM Oyer the PlEjxee Alliance. IS NOT LIKELY TO RESIGN Politicians Have Advised the President to Put Him Out of the Cabinet. Washington, June 27. The adminis tration ia thoroughly disturbed over the Alger-Pingree affair. Alger waa down to meet the president aa soon as he ar rived today, with the intention of show- ng his utmost concern and friendliness to the chief executive. Other members of the cabinet saw the president and gave him to understand that the latest developments ought to create a vacancy in the war department. Several poli ticians have been in the city, and they, too, have given strong intimation that a Republican administration haa little room for Alger after hia alliance with Pingree, who is an evident anti-admin istration man. Alger is considerable of a Dulldog, how ever, and he never struck a job that he liked any better than secretary of war. He also must realize it ia probably the last position he will have, and he wants to hang on to it as long as be can. There is no doubt that McKinley ia in a tighter place than he has been during the ad ministration, and Alger docs not intend to leave him by voluntary getting out. It will take all hia effrontery to remain when he sees that every man with whom he associates thinks he ought to get out and relieve the president of the embar rassment which ia caused by hia political alliance. Alger -sill probably find him self more and more ignored aa secretary of war and snubbed by every member of the cabinet; but he won't resign unless kicked out.
