Is the most ancient and most general of all
diseases. Scarcely a family is entirely free
from it, while thousands everywhere are its
suffering slaves. Hood's Sarsaparilla has had
remarkable success in curing every form of
scrofula. The most severe and painful run
ning sores, swellings in the neck, or goitre,
humor in the eyes, causing partial or total
blindness, have yielded to the powerful effects
of this medicine. It thoroughly removes
every trace of impurity from the blood and
builds up the weakened system.
The Worst Type.
"My son was afflicted with the worst type
of scrofula, and on the recommendation of my
Druggist I gave him Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Today he is sound and well, notwithstanding
it was said there was not enough medicine in
Illinois to effect a cure." J. Christian,
Hliopolis, 111.
What is Scrofula
It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu
lating in the glands of the neck, produces un
sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which
developes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness ; which is the origin
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
] manifestations usually ascribed to " humors."
It is a more formidable enemy than consumption
or cancer alone, for scrofula combines the worst
possible features of both. Being the most ancient
it is the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons are entirely free from it.
How can it be eured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa
parllla, which, by the cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all affections of the blood
Hood's Sarsaparilla is uuequalled.and someof the
cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofula in any of its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial.

Apparently the ranchers of Camas
prairie and Wood river, Idaho, are
doomed to another grasshopper plague.
For the three past seasons they have
lost the greater part of their grain crops
by reason of the pest. It now appears
that the eggs laid last season are hatch
ing out and the valleys are full of young
hoppers. The ranchers have had a bit
ter experience the past three years and
they are in a quandry whether to sow
grain or not. Kansas had a deplorable
experience for three years. This corner
of Idaho had thought that three years
of similar experience would let them out,
but the signs are against them.
All the employes of the Michigan car
works, at Detroit, to the number of 2,f>00, !
struck Saturday for nine hours work
with ten hours pay. As they passed out
of the works a volley of stones was thrown
and nearly every window in the building
was broken. The strikers proceeded to
the works of the Detroit Steel Spring
company and called on the men to strike.
The special police of the concern drove
the strikers out, whereupon they bred a
shower of bricks through the windows,
injuring one man and frightening the
others away. The police arrived at this
juncture and the strikers dispersed.
The car company insists this trouble is
engendered by the young men, who were
encouraged thereto by the success of the

The news that the dynamite cruiser
Vesuvius was to be given a series of gun
tests in the Chesapeake bay is received
with satisfaction by those officers at the
navy yards who are desirous of knowing
what the vessel can really do in an of
fensive way. The original contract be
tween the Dynamite Gun company and
the government stipulated that before
the vessel was accepted each of the
three fifteen-inch guns should be fired
five times in ten minutes, or an average
of once in two minutes. This has never
been satisfactorily accomplished, al
though the vessel has been in commis
sion nearly two years. Before Secretary
Whitney retired he accepted the vessel,
so far as speed, range and accuracy of
fire were concerned, but required proof
of rapidity of fire. This last require
ment has not been met, owing to a se
ries of unfortunate accidents.
Amidst the plaudits of thousands of
citizens, the blare of trumpets, beating
of drums, booming of cannon, melody of
children's t-oices and the eloquence of
orators, ground was broken Tuesday for
the monument which is to be erected at
the tomb at Riverside park, New York,
where rests all that is mortal of General
Grant. Members of Alexander Hamil
ton post, G. A. R., and other societies
partieipcTted, and the Yantic, anchored
near by in the Hudson, fired a salute of
twenty-one guns. Before the regular
ceremonies commenced 300 children
from the Sheltering Arms institution
and a drum and fife corps playing
"America," marched past the tomb with
Hags drooped. Each child carried a
bouquet of forget-me-nots, which were
cast upon the tomb. The marine band
played an overture, after which Rev. Dr.
Clark Wright, chaplain of Department
Commander Freeman's staff, offered
prayer and a chorus sang the "Star
Spangled Banner," followed by the ora
tion of the day,"delivered by Gen. Hor
ace Porter.
The powder explosion near Rome last
week did much greater damage in the
Eternal City than was at first reported.
All the windows in the pope's library
were broken and a number of precious
relics destroyed. The stained glass win
dows of St. Peter's and St. Paul's were
damaged and many relics destroyed.
St. Paul's church will be closed while
the damage is being repaired. The de
struction was irreparable, as the valua
ble works of art which were destroyed
cannot be replaced. Some time will
elapse before the full amouot of damage
can be known. It now transpires that
the pope was engaged in prayer when
the explosion shook the Vatican build
ing. So severe was the shock that his
holiness would have fallen had not one
of the servants caught him. Investiga
tion shows that the explosion was caused
by the accidsntal ignition of some shell
capsules. A number of the injured have
died. The king's sympathetic action in
conveying the wounded in his own car
riage to hospitals and in visiting the
wounded is very highly appreciated by
the populace of the city. Among those
hurt by the accident is Billot, the
French ambassador, who was slightly
injured hv falling glass.

assert that they have never engaged in

that the men may be lynched, as Banker

condition of government finances, the
secretary expressed himself as having no
fear of the inability of the government
to meet all obligations as they might
arise. The available money at the dis
posal of the treasury is placed at about
870.000. 000. Included in this aggregate
the secretary mentioned the subsidiary
coin now in the treasury, the large
amount of deposits held by national
banks, the surplus of approximately
811.000. 000 and also about 80,000,000
bullion and 81,000,(XX) in silver dollars in

had been issued.
At the close of the performance at the
Broadway theatre in New York City
Saturday night Anna Dickinson made
her first appearance since her deliver
ance from the insane asylum. The
audience was not large but greeted the
appearance of the gifted woman with
applause. Her speech effectually eradi
cated every doubt as to her sanity. It
was a rumbling talk in which she vio
lently attacked the republican party and
dwelt at great length upon what she
termed the private character of Mr.
\\ annamaker and J. S. Clarkson, attri
buting her imprisonment in Danville
asylum to a conspiracy of Clarkson,
Colonel Dudley and Senator Quay. The
personal characterizations were in
many instances repugnant to decency
and ladies who occupied the orchestra
chairs arose with their escorts and left
the theatre.

Count Von Moltke, the great German
warrior, died in Berlin on the evening of
the 24th. He attended the reichstag in
the afternoon. Death was sudden, and
the physicians who were summoned an
nounced that it was caused by heart
failure. The news of his unexpected
death caused great sorrow throughout
the empire. The ninetieth anniversary
of the birth of Helmuth Karl Bernhard
Moltke was celebrated October 26, 1890,
with unusual demonstrations through
out the (ferman empire and by many
German societies in the United States.
The venerable warrior, grim, erect, "si
lent in seven languages," was the reeipi
ent at that time of many tokens of af
fection and esteem. By imperial decree
the day was observed as a festival.
Moltke was the guest of honor of the
j emperor in Berlin, and treated by him

with distinguished consideration.
D. J. Hunt, gambler. who shot and
killed Private Miller, was lynched at
Walla Walla, Washington, Friday even
ing by soldiers from the garrison. Early
in the evening the sheriff received infor
mation that an attempt would be made
to lynch Hunt. Colonel Compton, in
j command of the garrison, was asked to
assist in keeping the men in, which he
! promised to do. The sheriff arranged
for an extra guard at the jail, but before
all of them could be placed a mob of
people and seventy soldiers commanded
j admittance. Admittance being refused
! they at once began work with hammers
| and chisels. Seeing resistance useless,
the doors were opened. Revolvers were
; leveled at the heads of all inside and the
I mob quickly got Hunt and took him to
-
! to death , sixteen bullets entering his
k° •'. mediately after the shooting
the soldiers went to their quarters, but
2,(XX) people lingered around the jail un
til after midnight.
The close of Wednesday's programme
for the reception of President Harrison
and party at San Francisco was the
launching of the armored coast defense
vessel Monterey. In addition to those
on the vessel there were probably 40,000
people on the shore. Never was such in
lerest taken or such enthusiasm dis
played at a similar event in that part of
the country. On the shore and bay
there was a perfect sea of flags and
bunting and for some time before the
launching there w r as a continuous
schreeching of steam whistles, to which
was added the music of a score of bands
on excursion steamers. The presidential
party were on the platform built around
the bow of the vessel. At 4:30 Mrs.
Harrison pressed the electric button
which sent the vessel down the ways.
The navy yard band played a national
air, and as she glided into the water
there burst forth steam whistles of all
varieties in the locality, the thunder of
the Charleston's guns in a national sa
lute and the cheers of the people. The
launch was entirely successful. The
presidential party returned to their ho
tel in carriages.
The Mayday .Strike Declared Oft'.
The great projected strike of miners
on May 1st for eight hours was declared
off Wednesday by the executive board
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica. The board, which has been hear
ing statements from the presidents of
state organizations for several days —
which were almost unanimously against
the movement at this time—issued a
lengthy address to members, in which
reference is made to the great strike of
the Pennsylvania coke regions, "the bat
tle waged by organized capital against
organized labor, which can only be
termed the gory precursor of seemingly
inevitable strife on a general and more
comprehensive manner." The address
concluded by saying that "the United
Mine Workers had rendered those peo
ple all the financial assistance possible,
and in addition we learn there has been
within competitive districts defection on
the part of disorganized miners of the
various sections; and, as custodians of
the interests of the people who placed
us in the positions we occupy, we posi
tively though reluctantly refuse, with
our eyes open and a full, and complete
knowledge of the situation, to jeopardize
those interests, and will not be respon
sible for the accompanying sufferings
and sacrifices of a strike to our constitu
ents and their families, seeing as we do
the situation and knowing that thou
sands of vampires and vultures are wait
ing for the 1st of May, to feed, as it
were, on the sacrifices of the organized
miners of the country."
The board adds that it realizes the dis
appointment to many, but says "an hon
orable retreat is better than the male- j
dictions of people after they have suf
fered because the truth was kept back.
It is therefore resolved that the eight
hour movement be deferred for the time
being and that the time for action be
left in the hands of the executive board
and presidents of the various districts."
Local unions are appealed to for aid
for the coke strikers, "whose battle,"
the address, "must be fought to
victory."
Death From Poisoned Whisky.

drank some of the li quor . T £L'
were taken .11 immediatelv after Mrs
Barnaby has died and Mrs. Warrell Ts
m a critical condition. A hemical an
alvsis showed there was a large amount
of arsenic in the whiskey. 1
Monday the associated press was fur
nished with the following statement
statement from Henry B. Winship
financial head of Barnaby A Co at
Providence, Rhode Island: "There was
murder, and in my judgment the motive
of gain inspired it. The crime lavs l>e
tweeu people whom I could count tin the
fingers of my hand. We will spend
e\erj dollar in our hands to punish the
dastardly prepetrators of that crime "
Mrs Barnaby, the victim of this an
parently dastardly crime, is not unknmvn
m Montana She was the mother of
Mrs J. II Conrad, wife of the Billings
merchant and president of the Park
Coke and Coal companv at Horr The
news of Mrs. Barnaby's death was re
eetved by Mr. and Mrs. Conrad while
they were in Helena for the purpose of
arranging for removal to that citv
I he announcement came several davs
prior to the Denver dispatch conveying
tii6 information of suspected foul play
and in response to the first summons
Mrs. Conrad started to Denver in order
to convey the remains to Providence
Rhode Island, for interment. The later
information concerning the poisoning is
regarded as most mysterious by the
Montana friends, and so far no plausible
theory has as yet been advanced on the
subject. A thorough investigation will
no doubt follow. The strangest part of
the story is that both ladies should have
partaken of the liquor, coining so mys
teriously from an unknown source.
The Timber

an
af
at
j
The Timber Culture Act.
Secretary Noble has communicated to
Commissioner Carter his views as to the
proper construction to he placed upon
the provision in section 7 in the repeal
of the timber culture act. The opinion
is of great importance to public land
states, inasmuch as it determines the
questiou as to what point of time the
wotds when there shall be no pending
contest or protest against the validity of
such entry, apply; whether a contest or
protest to prevent the issuance of pat
ent until disposed of must have been
pending before the lapse of two years
front the date of the issuance of the re
ceiver s receipt upon final entry, in cases
existing, and where two years had
elapsed before the act of March 3 took
effect, as well as in those afterwards.
Many thousands of homestead, desert
land, pre-emption and timber culture
entries are involved in the opinion. The
secretary says, in part: "If the statute
of March 3 were to be construed to in
validate all contests or protests not filed
within two years after the final receipt
and before this statute took effect, the
result would be that many thousand
fraudulent claims would go to patent
without further question being possible,
although contests or protests were le
gally pending at the date of the act, and
with great loss to many citizens. A con
test is the statutory means of acquiring
homestead or other claim against illegal
entry, and it thus militates, if success
ful, to preserve the public domain for
honest settlers. To so construe the
present act to annul and, as it were,
wipe out all those contests and protests
existing before March 3, 1891, not filed
within two years from the issuance of
final certificate, would amount substan
tially to a repeal pro tantoof the statute
of May 14, 1880. But the statute can
not be legally held to be repealed by im
plication and, least of all, where it would
allow patents to issue in so many cases
where the experiences of the depart
ment leaves no reason to doubt that
fraud had been perpetrated upon the
laws regulating land entries, and which
can be proved, if the contests and pro
tests are allowed to proceed to a hearing.
"If it had been the purpose of con
gress to provide that the contest or pro
test must be pending within two years
after the receiver's receipt upon final en
try in all cases before the statute of
March 3, 1891, as well as after, it cer
tainly would not have used so ambigu
ous terms as we here find. The makers
of this law were well acquainted with
the situation of affairs. Land laws have
been the subject of great discussion for
many years in and out of congress.
Committees on public lands are distin
guished for industry and intelligence,
and they were fully aware of all the
facts stated. Had they desired to ac
complish the purpose claimed by some
that this act does accomplish as it reads,
they should, and doubtless would, have
used language too plain and direct to re
quire construction. On the contrary,
they use the present participle in this
clause and say 'when there shall be no
pending contest or protest,' meaning
thereby, clearly, I think, pending then,
presently, at the date of the act, as it
was not intended to be limited to con
tests pending within two jears after the
date of final receipt when a case had
arisen before the present act took effect
and two years had elapsed. The statute
thus becomes one of limitation as to the
future without overthrowing pending
contests or protests. When the two
years did not terminate before the date
of the act the contest or protest, to be
valid, must be filed within two years.
"There is no force, I think, in the
point that the statute enumerates suits
arising under timber culture or pre
emption laws, for these laws, although
repealed by the present act, have been
efficacious to inaugurate entries which
either proceeded to final entry or may
yet do so. No new cases can arise un
der the timber culture or pre-emption
laws, but it was necessary that this act
should notice them to cover the whole
ground. Neither does the proposition
seem a sound one that by this statute it
was intended to expedite public busi
ness. The way congress must expect to
have patents issued is by furnishing a
sufficient clerical force to accomplish
the work, and not by suddenly rushing
great masses of cases to patent, although
contests legally instituted are pending,
and in which experience leaves no reason
to doubt fraud exists. To thus reward
fraud and squander public lands could
not have been the purjiose of our na
tional legislature. These are my views
upon the law presented and are all of
the points I deem it necessary to dis
cuss."

was postponed until next Sunday, whe'n
a most exciting time is expected. After
this game Livingston may expect a chal
lenge.
The Cokedale Social club gave a dance
at Williams' hotel on Tuesday evening
last. Music was furnished by local tab
ent and the attendance was good.
Work will soon begin on the much
needed school house, which is to lie
built on the south side of town under
the supervision of H. J. Wolcott of Liv
ingston.
Miss Maggie McDonald is just recov
ering from an attack of the grip.
A catch-as-catch-can wrestling match
between John Arnot of London and
Dave Henderson of Glascow was the
dual interesting event of last week.
Henderson won the first and third falls.
Henry Wilkinson arrived Thursday
from Gastonviile, Pa., and is a guest of
his stepbrother, William Garr.
Herman Weisemann, who has been
laid up for the past two months from in
juries received at the mines, was able to
commence work again the first of the

For dead game sports Cokedale is ah
solutely "out of sight." This bit of in
formation is official, being attested to by
Pat Tierney.
Little Tom, the engine on the Coke
dale elevated railway, jumped the track
Thursday morning, but without serious
damage. It was soon put in running
order again by Engineer McDonald,
who has charge of that line.
Bosco's Palace of Illusions, a sleight
of-hand show, is billed for this place
next Monday evening.
On account of too much water, work
has been suspended on Pat Tierney's
coal mine for a time.
Joe McCune is feeling good over the
future prospects of his coal mine near
this camp. He has two tunnels, one of
which is 300 feet and the other 470 feet
deep. He supplies quite a number of
blacksmith shops in different localities
from his mine.
Men are at work excavating and pre
piring for the erection of the new hoist
ing machinery, which is now on the
ground and to lie put up during the
coming season. When in operation,
this will be a decided improvement over
the old works.
