WASHINGTON. r.b 23 Tho house con
tinued work on the .inn appropriation
bill to-dj. liut fai'ed to complete it. Con-t-iilcrablc
unimositv w.-s devt loped during
the debate, and there were slurp pas-o-tges
between Mr. Grosvenor and Mr. Cannon
on one h ind and JicT-. Simpson, of K.in-
t. and Cochran, of Missouri, bn the
other. Eulogies were delivered after 2
o'clock on the late Semtor Walthall and
Representative Love, both of Mississippi.
Owing to the prc-sure of business the
house met at 11 c'ock to-da. Mr. Hen
derson, Republican, of Iowa, stated to the
house that, on account of the great
amount of public business to be disposed
of during the remainder of tHc wion. it
vi as desirable that the house meet herc
nfter at 11 o'clock. Three appropriation
bills were jet to pass the hou-e, said he,
and but three had gone to the president.
An order to meet at 11 o'clock a made.
The hoiicc'then went into committee of
whole and resumed the consideration of
the army appropriation bill. Mr. Hay.
Democrat, of Virginia, the ranking minor
ity member cf the military committee, crit
icised the amount carried by the bill,
which, he said was plainly Insufficient to
maintain an army of lOO.WV) men. The
hearings before the committee, he said,
had fhown that It cost tl.OTO to maintain
one enlisted man serving in this country,
and more while serving abroad. This bill
appropriated J73.O00.O00. His estimate was
J120000.0UO. He charged that the friends of
a large standing army did not desire to
let the country 'nto the secret of Its enor
mous cost. But there would surely be a.
deficiency.
Mr. Hull said he frankly conceded that
If the reorganization bill reported to the
-enate yesterday became a law there
would be a deficient. That, bill provided
for fiftv-fivo regiment" of infantry, against
thirty in the house bill, a large staff and
nn increase in the number of enlisted men.
There vould be about L.0OT additional of
ficers to pay for. and the deficiency In
his opinion would be from two to five
million.
"Mr. Simpson. Populist, of Kansas, criti
cised the increase in the number of clerks
and messengers provided for the war de
liartment. The number of clerks In the
bill was 240; messengers, fclxtv-eight. Mr.
Simpson said he understood It was the
custom to detail manj of these messengers
as private servants, butlers, etc, for high
officials in the department.
Mr. Hull said the Increase In the num
ber of clerks was absolutely necessarj- As
to the charge of detailing messengers 'for
private service, he knew nothing. Secre
tary Alger was on the Iloor for a time dur
ing the consideration of the army appropri
ation bill to-da.
Mr. Cochran, Democrat, of Missouri, at
tempted to secure time to answer the state
ments made on the other side jesterflay,
that there was nothing In the nature of an
alliance between Aguinaldo and the Ameri
can forces before the capture of Manila.
Mr. Hull objected.
"This is not the first time," said Mr.
Cochran, "that the rnajoritj, in the clos
ing hours of a debate have made challenges
and then objected to replies. Their objec
tions are made to cover their retreat."
Mr. Hull thereupon withdrew his objec
tion and Mr. Cochran proceeded to give
what he t-aid was the most Important clfa li
ter of the war. Upon the testimony of
three American generals, he contended,
first, that we solicited an alliance; second.
lliat it was solemnly' formed; third, that
the Filipinos kept their faith, and, fourth,
that we shametully v iolated our compact.
Me referred to the reports of General An
derson, General Greene and General Mer
ritt to prove his assertions of the valuable
aid rendered, by Aguinaldo and the insur
gents. Mr. Cochran al'o insisted that the money
Kitlrl in hac been embezzled bv Aguinaldo
(HOO.OuO) had been used in the purchase of
urms and In lighting the bpanisn. mis, ne
said, wab proven by testimony of Consul
Vildman.
Mw Lewis. Democrat, of Washington, de
livered a sort of valedlctur upon the con
clusion of his two terms in congress, in
which he expressed his views, amid gener
ous applause from both sides, that, no
'matter what difference there might be as
to our rights and duties in the Pnlllppines.
congress must, and ever member of the
congress should, -.upport our soldiers light
ing abroad for the honor and glory of
their country.
Mr. Lice. Republican, of Iowa, after
cor.r-llmenllng Mr. Lewis, denounced the
othei aide generally for firing into the rear
of Otis bv sounding the praises of Aguin
nldo and Asoncillo upon the lloor of the
house.
Concluding, lie paid a. glowing tribute to
the valor of American soldiers fighting in
the trenches under the tropic sun at Ma
nna.
Mr. Grosvenor. Republican, of Ohio, pur--uing
the subject along the same lines, ic
i ailed the duvs of Tom Corwin, of Ohio,
who was In the senate during the Mexl
tau vvai. Corwin, tie said, was the idol
of. his party and admired by his political
opponents. One unfortunate dav in the
enate he had said: "Were I a Mexican,
hs I am an American. 1 would welcome
jour soldiers with welcome hands to hos
pitablo graves'."
For that utterance Corwin bad been re
pudiated bv his party and hid died a broken-hearted
man. When he delivered It. our
r-oldlers were djing on the Rio Grande,
as they were now djing in the Philippines.
It was, treason now. he continued, to stop
and hesitate as to whether our soldier-,
should be defended. He denied that there
had been any alliance with Aguinaldo. and
haid tlw.t at the proper time he would pro
duce the record. The first order of the
president after the fall of Manila had for
bidden any and all alliances of any char
acter with anyone. He referred to Aguin
aldo as a "scaltawag." -"bn
i "I can sav what I desire in two sen
tences, said Mr. Cannon. Republican of

Mr. Simpson rose to a question of per
sonal privilege to answer the statement of
Mr. Cannon that If he (SlmpFon) had made
his speech in Manila he would have been
court-martialed and shot. Perhaps this
might be so, said Mr. Simpson, derislvelv.

tor Vernon II. Burke was to-day found'
guilty in the circuit court of the tirt
specification in the ch irges brought
against him. Judge Caldwell read the
findings of the court.
Burke was charged in the first pccin
cation with being engaged by Judge. Dell
cnbaugh us attome In the Mannintr alien
ation case and as such attorney with ex
torting $10,000 from "Jane Doe" in settle
ment of the ease.
"As the evidence now stands before this
court." he said, "we find that Judge Dell
enbaugh and Judge Vernon II. Buikewere
joint! the attorncs of Nettie E Manning
during the acts complained of in the first
specification. We prevlouslv found that
Judge Dellenbaugh did receive J1.100, one
third of the fees paid in the Manning case,
and that the weight of the evidence
showed that Dellenbaugh participated in
the management of the Manning case up
to the time of the division of the fees.
"It Is necessary for the court to speak

almost impossible to separate the facts in
each case.
"Just prior to the publication of this
case," Judgf Caldwell continued. "Burke
had a talk with Judge Dlssette, In which
he told in detail all the facts in the ease.
Judge Dlssette states that Burke said
Dellenbaugh told him to go down and
strike Mai e Doe' for CO.OOO.
" 'Jane Doe' said she could not have the
story come out, and she could, not rak-e
MO.OOO; said she could raise 00,000, which
she did raise, and gave to Burke and Del
lenbaugh. Judge Dlssette sajs he told
Burke that was the coldest-blooded affair
ho ever heard of. Our conclusion," said
Judge Caldwell, "is that Mr. Burke is
guilty as charged in the first specification'
unprotessionai conduct involving moral
turpitude.'
Judge Caldwell said the evidence showed
that Mrs. Manning should not have len
given a divorce. "There was a conspir
acy between Judge Dellenbaugh and Burke
to get that-decree upon the journal, and
we .feel warranted in placing the guilt'
equall upon Burke
"We find Burke guiltv on both specifica
tions, and our Judgment is that he be dis
barred." Notice of appeal was given in both cases,
and they will be carried to the supreme
court, according to tho announced plans
of the attornes for the defense.
Until a ear or two ago, Dellenbaugh
and Burke were the closest personal
friend". When M. A. Hacna began his
campaign for the United States senate.
Judge Dellenbaugh became- one of his
most active supporters. Burke, on the
other hand, as a member 'of the Ohio
senate, was the leader In the state leg
islature of the anti-Hanna movement.
This resulted in a bitter quarrel between
Dellenbaugh and Burke. Eventually sen-s-Ulonal
rumors were circulated concern
ing Judge Dellenbaugh. Burke openly as
serted that he knew enough to draw Del
lenbaugh from the bench; that he had di
vided fees with him in a case which had
been tried before Dellenbaugh. as judge...
Dellenbaugh denied these rumors in open
court, and asked that the Cleveland Bar
Assoclition Investigate them. This was
done, with the result that both Burke and
De'Ienbaugh were brought before the cir
cuit court in disbarment proceedings

They will, therefore, agree to let the nomi

that provisions be made for the appoint

nounces It nn a Illdeon
Monntrolty.
WASHINGTON. Feb 2 After two
hours devoted to the consideration of bills
on the calendar to-da, the senate, at 1
o'cloek. began the consideration of the
compromise arm reorganiz ition bill,
which had been agreed upon by the mem
bers of the militar affairs committee. Un
til a sihort time before the measure was
tAken up It was supposed it would be
passed to-day without serious difficulty,
but when it was learned by some senators
that the bill provided for a permanent hv
crease in the standing arm, objections
were heard, and it beenme evident that the
measure would have to run the gauntlet of
sftarp criticism
Mr. Gorman, Democrat, of Mar land, de
sired that no authorization of a perma
nent increase In the army should be given,
and prepared an amendment, as follows-
"That each and ever provision of this
act shall continue in force until July 1.
ItOl, and on and after this date the officers
and men. Including general officers and
staff offlcer.s, shall be restored to rank and
numbers as prov ided for by law prior to
April 1, 1S9S, except the cadets appointed
prior to July 1. 101. and except as provided
for in the act to authorize two additional
regiments of artillery, approved March S,
189S."
Speeches in support of the bill were de
livered by Mr. Hawley, of Connecticut;
Mr. Cockrell. of Missouri; Carter, of Mon
tana, and Smith, of New Jersey; and
against It by Mr. Gorman, of Maryland,
and Mr. Allen, of Nebraska.
The speeches of Senators Gorman, carter
and Cockrell were notable utterances.
Mr. Cockrell, who has consistently op
posed a large standing nrmy, gave tho
pending measure his unequivocal and un
qualified support, declaring It was the best
army measure ever submitted to congress.
No agreement to vote on the bill had
been reacheu when the senate adjourned.
Mr. Cockrell, who is a member of the
military affairs committee, discussed at
length "the features of the measure. "This
measure," said he, "has been examined
very cntlcall. I indorse it because It is
right, just, proper and necessary. It will
settle for ears to come the standing army
controversy." Further along in his anal sis
of the bill. Mr. Cockrell said the Increase
in the army provided for by the bill was
"perfectly justifiable and absolutely es
sential." In response to a question by Mr. Vest,
he said that the army after 1901 would be
reduced to CS400, and that number would
be required to take care of the cotst for
tifications. In conclusion, Mr. Cockrell
said: "If we have a bill here which will
adjust the army controversy for -tears to
come, we ought to accept it. It Is not
prodigal of the people's mone. I have
been on several commissions and commit
tees for the reorganization of the army,
and I believe, honestly and conscientiously,
that this, is the very best measure present
ed to congress for settling the army since
I entered this chamber in 1ST3 If the bill
falls, my judgment is that that which will
come hereafter will not be so good for the
country. I believe the bill Is right in the
sight of God and man, and I'm willing to
take all responsibility for it."
Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, addressed the
senate in opposition to the general fea
tures of the bill. He was surprised that
Mr. Cockrell could giv e his sanction to such
a measure. "If there .ever was a hideous
skeleton, a monstrosity, a deformity In leg
islation, this bill is one," he declared. "It
is warped, disjointed, dislocated It lacks
science, it lacks coherence, It lacks good
sense.
"I am not concerned In this delightful
fight now going on between the secretary
of war and the general commanding the
army. I, honor General Miles In that fight.
Every intelligent man in tho country be
lieves that our army was fed on trash, and
that a large per cent of the sickness and
mortality in the army was due to the, food
giv en to the soldiers "
Passing from the army troubles, Mr. Al
len adverted to some in the navy. He re
garded it as a glorious thing that Admiral
Dewey had the presence of mind to cut the
cable between him and Washington and
that it was fortunate for Dewey he was in
position to sever connection with Washing
ton. "Then, too," said Mr. Allen, "we have the
controversy over the two rear admirals in
tho navy. Whether the man who fought
the battle resulting in the destruction of
Cerv era's fleet and won it shall have the
laurels of victory or whether they shall go
to a man who was ten miles away seems a
subject of controversy by the navy depart
ment. "The American people 70,000 000 of honest
hearts and souls will aiwas oelieve that
Schley was the hero of that battle and won
that battle, and I am not detracting any
thing from the service of Admiral Samp
son, who. it he had been there, would have
acquitted himself nobl. This seems to be
a gumc of battledoro and shuttlecock, and
over In the navy department the are shed
aing more ink than blood."
Mr. Gorman said that what he should
Insist upon until his voice should cease to
be heard in the senate was that congress
should be permitted to deal with the ques
tion deliberate! and with ample time for
its consideration.
Mr. Hawley hid asked who was afraid
of a large standing armv. In reply, Mr.
Gorman said that e.'ery state in the Union
wa afraid of It. He (Mr. Gorman) was
afraid of It himself. Such an institution
was contrary to the spirit of our affairs.
He recalled the time when in 1S76 troops
were sunmoned to asiiington at the time
of the Hae-s-Tilden controversy.
"I remember the quUt intimidation of
the presence of the troops," said Mr. Gor
man. He had great personal respect for Mr.
McKlnlev and had no criticisms except that
ln his good nature he Ind permitted weak
ness and inefticlcnc in the departments.
"Weakness, I sav." repeated the senator.
"Time alone could reveal whether there had
been anv thing worse."
Mr. Tillman asked if the Philippine re
bellion could not be put down b volun
teers and Mr. Gorman said he " saw no
reason why it should not be But this
wa not the desire. The wish was to
hive more shoulder straps and more men
to wear them. Insignificant as were the
achievements of the army comparativelv,
in the Sp mlsh w.ir. there had been more
appointments of officers' In the ami and
more men had received advancement than
during the first year of the rebellion, with
all the South ln arms Never were brig
adict generals so thick in Washington.
Tuere were a sufficient number of them
alone to suppress an ordinar" rebellion.
Mr. Gorman declared that, under tho
present head of the army, a proper organ
ization of the sen fee could not be effected.
Mr. Carter, a member of the military
committee, replied to Mr. Gorman. After
discussing the "crv of militarism." Mr.
Carter declared: "Militarism comes to us
as a necessltv, not as a desire. The pres
ent conditions were evolved from the war
with Spain That war was evolved from
the sense of outraged humanity for an
oppressed and stricken people who de
sired onlv freedom and a chance to
breathe In" God's wunlight. That war was
not brought into existence as a grand cru
sade of arm" " , ..
After discussing at length the result of
the war with Spain, showing how the Phll
ippne fell Irto our hands, he asked if It
was delrable to leave those Islands to
float a'out the Pacific a political dere
licts To do that, he declared, would be
the national crime of the centux. Having
accepted those, islands we had undertaken
also the responsibility for law and tordcr
there
"We will first perform," said he, "the
dut of the hour, and there is not a man
w ho breathes in this chamber to-nlpht w ho
would be willins to surrender our rlae and
position to Aguinaldo and his followers."
In due course of time Mr. Carter believed,
on each of these liberated Islinds the peo
ple would meet on their national holiday
to celebrate the landing of American
troops which brouBht them freedom
Mr. Smith, Democrat, of New Jersey. In
stating his reasons for supporting the bill.
Haid that as i general and broad principle
he was opposed to alar,;e standing nrm

such an arm as dangerous to the liberties
of the people, but." said he, "I will not
see the ling displaced or the country hu
miliated through an action of mine. I am
a Democrat, and shall alwas remain so,
but I am n American citizen."
He believed in giving the president, while
the war continued, all the forces, necessary

TO MEET THE KHALIFA.

LONDON, Feb 2D -The news that the
khalifa is collecting a host varing in num
bei from 13.WJ to -U.OOO men, and is march
ing bn Khartoum, came with a'lude, shock
to the people of Great Britain, who were
'under tho Impression that he was almost a
solltarj wanderer ln the desert. Official
circles, however, express satisfaction at
the fact that the khalifa is apparently de
termined to make another onslaught on
the Anglo-Hg ptlun forces, as they are
confident he will casil be defeated.
Major General Archib ild Hunter, the gov
ernor of Ondurman, is quoted as saing in
an interview: '1 regard the kh llita as a
nuls mce. Hc is no longer dangerous, and
it will greatly simplify matters if he comes
out. and fights."
In tho meantime, detachments of Brit
ish troops have been ordered to get ready
to return to Omdurman from Lower Egypt,
and a strong expedition will be formed and
advanced to meet the Khalifa.
A controvers lias been raging this week
over the destruction of tho mahdl's tomb
at Omdurman and the disposal of his bones.
It is said that the officers, after the battle,
divided his bones among themselves, one
officer getting a linger nail, while the
embalmed head was given to the late Gen
eral Gordon's nephew.
The radical newspapers indignantly con
demn the outrage, which is defended on
the other side on the ground of expediency.
It being held that the destruction of the
mahdi's remains was a great blow to
fanaticism The Irish members neckiea
the government on the subject and drew
forth a statement to the effect that the
ministers had no Information on the sub

NO NEWS FROM "NICARAGUA.
Washington Cannot Hear From tne
Revolution, Nor From the
Marietta.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 Neither the
navy department nor the Nlcaraguan lega
tion hare has any recent news of the
Nicaraguan revolution nor of the United
States steamship Marietta, which was dis
patched over a week ago to Blueflelds to
look after American Interests there. The
navy department has made several efforts
to communicate with the Marietta without
success, and It was rumored In the state
department that the Nlcaraguan govern
ment was under suspicion of holding up
the department's1 dispatches to her. Mr.
Correa. tho Nicaragu in charge here, ex
plains this, however, by saying that Blue
fields is in the hands of the insurgents,
and that it is impossible to get through a
message from that point to the United
States without running down the coast to
San Juan or Colon, as there is no cable
from Bluefieldsi to Jamaica or any other
point from which the United States can
be reached by wire
FOR A CABLEJO HAWAII.
Senate Committee Agrees to Incorpo
rate a Provision for It in San
' dry 1 Civil Bill.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23 The senate,
committee on appropriations to-day agreed
to incorporate a provision in the sundry
civil appropriation bill providing for the
construction of a submarine cable connect
ing the United States with the Hawaiian
islands. The amendment adopted is tho
one introduced by Senator Butler, and it
provides for the laying of the cable by the
United States, and for its subsequent own
ership by the government, the navy depart
ment to perform the serv ice, and the cable,
when completed, to be operated by the post
oflice department.
Senator Butlers original Dronosition nro-
vided for the extension of the cable to the
Philippine islands, but the committee de
cided not to make provision for this ex
tension because of the uncertainty of the
tenure of the United States in the last
named island.
Senator Butler made a statement before
the committee showing that the cable
could bo laid to Honolulu for $6,942,000.

there has been general condemnation of

which will only injure themselves."

"If the movement of the Negros and

Americans Is genuine, it will not only yield
the lJtter material for a sepoy army,

the cradle of the race No woman who suf
fers in this way can retain her good looks
or her attractiv eness. The daily burden of
torturing, dragging pains that she carries,
will soon make her a physical wreck, and
eventually either kill her or drive her to
insanity. Any woman may restore and re
tain her health and strength in a womanly
way by the use of Dr Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. It cures absolutely and com
pletely the weakness and diseases peculiar
to her sex. It does away with the neces
sity for the obnoxious "examinations " and
"local treatments " insisted upon by nearly
all physicians, and enables her to treat her
self in the privacy of her home. It is the
invention of Dr. R V. Pierce, for thirty
years chief consulting physician to the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at
Buffalo, N. Y. Any woman may consult
him by letter free of charge. All corres
pondence sacredly confidential.
" I was sickly for sixteen vcats with prolap
sus, weakness disagreeable drain, pain in the
imall of mv back and costireness," writes Mrs.
Mary Ashlin, of Bartonett. Barron Co , Wis
"When I began taking Dr Pierce's Favonte
Prescription I could not sit up After taking it
for one week I got up and did ray housework I
have taken four bottles of the ' Fa onte Prescrip

These medicines have cured me I feel as welL

CLERK SQUABBLE
DISGRACEFUL WRANGLE ON FLOOR
OF THIS HOUSE.
THE CHIEF CLERK'S SCHEME
DISCII RGED THOSE EMPLOYES
WHO ARC INOISPENSAULE.
Administration Democrats Scekinjc
frame AVn to Rentorc lloimc
Clerks to Their 1'onltlons
Their Fit of Economy
a Dclualon.
JErFERSON CITY, MO. Feb 23 -(Special.)
Now that the Democratic members
ln the house. In a spasm of economy, have
succeeded in eliminating sit-nine super
fluous clerks from the pay roll, the have
begun the Inevitable wrangle to re
store, them again. As The Journal has
before stated, the house no sooner ac
complishes something by its sciuabbles
than another squabble is precipitated ln
the effort to undo what has been done.
And so the squabbles are endless ard con
tinuous. There was another disgraceful wrangle
in the house this morning, although there
was barely a quorum present. The row
began when Weaver, of Jefferson, offered
a resolution to restore to the pay roll C.
B. Tllden, a disch.uged clerk. After con
siderable heated discussion on this ques
tion, Ellis, of Bates, offered a substitute
to restore John C. Duvall, of Richmond;
Lon Luther, of Pettis county: Miss Lidia
Lee, of Chariton count; Miss Laura
Mitchell, of Howard county; Miss Betty
Breathett. of Saline county, and Fred C.
Sickles, of Putnam county. The last is
the stenographer granted to the Republic
ans and is the only appointee given to the
minority.
The Delzell resolution did not contem
plate the discharge of the minority tlerk,
but this is a part of Major Newman's
scheme. The major thinks that by dis
charging his most competent emploes he
can force the house to reinstate them.
That is the reason that he selected Jeff
Pollard, the reading clerk, ds the first man
to go. The house restored Pollard by
unanimous vote, and the major's plan was
working handsomely. Net the clerks em
braced in tne above resolutions to restore
were discharged. These clerks are among
the very few who really work, and for
this reason, the house will hesitate to let
them go. But the major's fine scheme may
miscarry. The members who see througn
it are thoroughly angry with the major
and his petty politics. They refer to him
as the perennial charge of the Democratic
party, and say that his queer sjgtem of
running things may result in the election
of a new chief clerk to take the placo of
the major, "out of a job."
After an hour of great confusion and rtis.
border the resolutions of restoration went
over until Monday.
uunng the stormy progress of the de- 1
uaia mo KepuMicans had their usual
amount of fun with tho Democrats It
will be remembered vthat "Coin" Harvey
uiuuo a. recent trip to the capital and put
in a plea for tho Democratic campaign
fund. It was suggested to the clerks that
they would find it to their advantage to
subscribe 1 a month for the promulga
tion of thn frp rIKpp mtiinnni..i -n;r..f
Mr. Klskaddon thought it would be unjust
t uuujt. wig uiouiuiiifu cierKs io mis ex
pense, so he offered this resolution of ex
emption: "Whereas. Manv ATnnlrtipa nf thic hnnca
who were discharged by renson of the pro-"
,,c,ut,3 ui wiu xjeizeu resolutions, having
agreed to pay to Coin Harvey 1 per
month during the session of the Fortieth
general assembly; therefore be It
"Resolved. That said obligation shall
not be enforced and is hereby canceled
and held for naught."
Another Repubican offered this resolu
tion on the subject of the discharge of
blcKles:
','whereas- The Republican minority of
this house was, at the organization of the
house, granted one member on the clerical
force and
"UJhereus, As the chief clerk has (Gol
durn him) discharged our one solitary
member on said clerical force, and
"Whereas, Said member was a nice boy;
therefore,
"Resolved, That the chief clerk shall
never again, holler down our rain barrel,
slide down our cellar door, nor play with
our little red wagon in our back ard un
less he does at once restore to us our one
dear little boy, member of the once power
ful clerical force. Wo refuse to be com
forted. Respectfully, MINORITY."
Both of these resolutions were declared
out of order, but they afforded much
amusement.

EOW IT STAE1ED.
The Craze for Treating Catarrh, Bronchitis
and Consumption by Inhalation.
Brought About by the Wonderful Cures Made
Through the Use of Hyomei.
A New Dry Air Germicide, and
Three jears ago, had jou suggested to any medical man In good standing that dis
eases of the respiratory organs could be cured by inhalation, he would have laughed
at ou. Although admitting that through inhalation alone could these be reached,
he-would at the same time have informed you that no germicide had ever jet been
discovered which could be carried in the air we breathe to the bronchial tubes and
lungs without killing the patient. Yet to-day there nre dozens of remedies on the
market advertised to cure by inhalation, and ever one seems crazed over this meth
od of treating disease. Old-established specialists and advertising doctors; who for
ears claimed to euro thousands annually, have dropped all their old treatments and
gone into the inhalation business. Why? Because a new dry air germicide, called
Hyomei. has been found, and out of over seven hundred thousand cases treated last
j ear, failed to completely cure but 106. It is no w onder that tho public and medical pro
fession have gone wild over the new treatment that will prevent and cure disease
which every ear destroys over two hundred thousand lives in this country alone. The
people should remember, how ev er, that there is but one dry air germicide, and it Is called
"Hyomei." Through Its wonderful powers alone has cure by Inhalation been mado
possible. Bear this in mind when purchasing a treatment no other Inhaler mado
contains "Homei." No other manufacturer can obtain it. and last, but not least,
no other Is guaranteed to cure, or money refunded. Ask for Booth's "Hyomei," and
take nothing else.

Of catarrh? If so, what part of the organ Is involved? Ca
tarrh is offensive to good Is a bar to your enjoyment of refined
society; makes you an unwelcome guest It is a menace to your
health and life. Catarrh Is a disease which affects the various
mucous membranes of the body and if not checked becomes
chronic and often is the forerunner of more serious complica
tions. Catarrh of the head and nose affects the whole respira
tory organs and if allowed to run on causes laryngeal catarrh,
bronchial catarrh, pulmonary catarrh,catarrh'of the cars, ca
tarrh of the eyes, catarrh of the stomach, catarrh of the
bowels, catarrh of the liver, catarrh of the kidneys and ca
tarrh of the bladder. All these complications are caused by an '
unchecked catarrh of the head and nose. Here this terrible diss,
ease starts. It affects the memory. It causes deafness, impairs
the sight, it affects the taste, smell, often the speech; causes
consumption, destros the digestive organs and finally leads to
Brlght's disease, after journeying downward through all these
organs, carrying destruction and finally death to tho great

LEARNING FROM AMERICA.
Great Britain to Make an Attempt to
Compel line of Automatic
Coupling;.
LONDON, Feb. 23. An announcement
very flattering to the United States was
made in the house of commons this week,
when the president of the board of trade.
Mr. C. T. Ritchie, promised to Introduce a
bill to compel railroad companies to adopt
automatic couplings.
Mr. Ritchie, in so doing, said that the
assistant secretary having charge of the
railway department of the board of trade,
Mr. Francis J. Hopwood. recently returned
from a mission to the United States and
reported highly In favor of American sjs
tem. He showed indisputably that there had
been a great saving of life since the adop
tion or automatic couplers on American
railroads.
Tho Dally News, commenting on the
above, said: -
"An Interesting feature of the proposal is
that It is frankly avowed to be the re
sult of a lesson from experience In the Uni
ted States
"Our public departments, hitherto, have
not been very ready to admit that they
had anything to learn .from, abroad, least
of all the board of trade."
