"That new spelling fad lasted
quick, didn't it? Folks had be
come used to the old fashioned
way, and they refused to adopt
the new. It didn't seem natural
and when they came across a
word spelled according to the
new style, they hesitated and
often wondered what the word
was and more often provoked at
the liberty taken with some of
them. Just another fad, gone

know why newspapers and coun

must always be a target because
they charge full legal rates for
legal advertising. The mayor,
members of the council, any
office holder from the highest
judge down to a health officer,
is allowed to charge legal fees
and never a kick or a whimper
is heard. They are paid without
a grunt or an objection but just
as soon as a newspaper presents
a bill, for legal rates, there goes
up a howl worthy of a lumber
wolf. Publishers are entitled to
the fees allowed by law just as
much as any other man and, I

becoming wide spread that the

are feeling it quite severely.

Members of Foreign Legations Will
Be Present at Jamestown.
Washington, April 1/.Huntington
Wilson, third assistant secretary of
state, acting for the ter-centenmal
commission, has practically completed
the arrangements for the reception
and the entertainment of the members
of the diplomatic body at the opening
ceremony of the Jamestown exposi
tion. Assistant Secretary Edwards of
the treasury department, who is sec
retary for the commission, has char
tered the steamer Newport News for
the accommodation of the diplomatic
corps and a number of government
officials of high rank. Accordingly
Mr. Wilson has sent invitations to 130
persons of the diplomatic body resi
dent in Washington. The list includes
ambassadors, ministers and secre
taries of embassies and legations and
the women of their families.

add to the burden, by disagreeably affecting the bowels, producing indiges-

absolute vegetable purity of S. S. S. has always been one of the strongest
points in its favor, and is one of the principal reasons for its being now the
most widely known and universally used blood medicine on the market.
It is made entirely of healing, purifying roots, herbs and barks of the for-
ests and fields. These are selected for their well known curative properties,
and are known at the same time to possess the qualities to build up and
strengthen every part of the system by their fine tonic effect. Not only is
S. S. S. the king of blood purifiers, but it is the one medicine that may be

BONILLA_A_PRISONER President of Honduras Reported
to Have Surrendered.
NEWS COMES FROM ENEMY
Message Gives No Details of the Af
fair, but It Is Supposed That the
Nicaraguans Have Captured A ma-
paIa, Where Bonilla Was Bottled Up.
New Orleans, April 1J.According
to a cablegram received by the offi
cials of the Fruit Dispatoh company
here President Manuel Bonilla of Hon
duras has surrendered to the Nic
araguan forces. The cablegram came
from Managua, Nicaragua, and was
signed by President Jose S. Zelaya.
No details were given other than
that Bonilla had surrendered. Ad
vices received here Thursday, how
ever, were to the effect that Bonilla
had been "bottled up" in the port of
Amapala ever since he made his sen
sational flight from Choluteca.
Panama, April 1 .A personal
friend here of President Zelaya of
Nicaragua has received a dispatch
from Santos Ramirez, director gen
eral of telegraphs and telephones, in
forming him that Amapala, Honduras,
to which place President Bonilla of
Honduras retreated after his defeat at
Choluteca, would probably surrender
to the Nicaraguan forces shortly.
FOR PERMANENT PEACE.
Plan to End Unsettled Conditions in
Washington, April 1 .That all of
the Central American republics are
looking to the present state of war
fare between Nicaiagua and Honduias
to result in an agreement for per
manent peace in Central America was
developed during the day by a gen
eral discussion at the state depart
ment. With that end in view the
negotiations looking to a cessation of
hostilities will not go so far as to take
up the subject of permanent peace,
but will leave this broad question to a
conference to be held in Washington
or the City of Mexico and in which all
of the countries immediately interest
ed may take part. The United States
and Mexico, according to the embry
onic plans, will occupy the important
positions of umpires.
The conflict between two of the
Central American republics, which is
now drawing to a close, has made it
apparent to all that the present un
settled conditions there are hamper
ing the development of the countries.
The various republics not involved in
the war kept free with the greatest
difficulty and commercial affairs in all
of them were affected. With the
United States and Mexico urging the
placing of the republics on a firm
basis, so that they might dwell am
icably together and enjoy an inter
change of business, and with the les
sons taught by the present war there
is every indication that a permanent
agreement may be reached
The plan has not gone far enough
for the suggestion of a date for such
a conference, but it is assumed that
it will not interfere with the confer
ence at The Hague, although the two
would not be in conflict in any way
Ambassador Creel of Mexico is said to
be father of the idea, but it has the
hearty approval of state department
TO PLACE HIM ON RECORD
Labor Wants President's Opinion of
Moyer and Haywood.
Chicago, April 1,,.The Chicago
Federation of Labor is endeavoring to
place President Roosevelt on record
regarding his reported opinions of
Moyer and Haywood, officials of the
Western Federation of Miners, charged
with complicity in the assassination
of former Governor Steunenberg of
Idaho. E N. Nogles, secretary of the
local laboi body, has sent the presi
dent the following telegram*
"The newspapers report you as say
ing thai Moyer and Haywood are un
desirable citizens. In view of the
fact that these men will soon be put
on trial for their lives we believe their
chances for a 'square deal' would be
considerably lessened if the reported
statement is true We therefore ask
you for correct information upon this
subject, believing a man is innocent
until he is proved guilty.*'

pany to consider the terms of con
solidation and obtain data upon which
the earning powers and resources of
the companies are estimated.
The statement is made that if the
consolidation is effected a great par
ent company will be formed to issue
securities not less in amount than
$150,000,000, which will be the most
powerful factor the rubber trade of
the world. In the company there will
