peclally is this the oaso when theii
children are toothing. The number ol
ohildron that aro carried away annuallj
by bowel complaint, In its varloui
forms Is prodigious. Yet almost orerj
case could bo curod by propor care and
treatment. During the past fiftoen
years, It has been abundantly proren.

by a remody within the roach of all
Chamberlain's Collo, Cholora and Diar

cases, that woro considered hopeless, it
has cured thorn after physicians hart
failed to relieve, it has cured them af tei
other modlcines had been tried without
boneiit, it hue even curod them aftof
they had become unconcious. It can
always be depended udod. and should
be kept at hand, br every mother ol
small children. When children art
teething, the diarrhoea oan not be chock
ed permanently, as the same cause tha
producod it will bring it on again, oul
it can nnd should bo oontrolled b.
giving Chamborluin's Colio, Cholers
and Diarrhoea Remedy,' as theoase may
require. Then when the child is
through toething, the diarrhoea may be
effectually checkod. This remedy has
boon the solo reliance of thousands of
mothers throughout the west for over
fifteen years, and its cures have shown
it to bo tho best and most reliable-renv

Wo feel satisfied that Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholora and Diarrhoea Remedy
is tho best medicine we handle for all
diseases of the bowels; we have given
it a thorough test. A member of our
family, a little girl, had been very sick
with bowel oomplalnt, wo had the
dootor to soe her twice, after giving her
what medicine tho doctor left and see

(from Our Regular Correspondent)
Washington, May 4th, 1888.
President Cleveland has the happy
faculty of making good appoint
ments. His latest popular hit in
this line was the nomination of Mr.
Melville Fuller, tbe eminent Chicago
lawyer, for Chief Justico of tho Uni
ted States. The appointment is uni
versally conceded to be an excellent
one; even the Republicans join in
praising Mr. Cleveland for the good
jndgmont shown m making the eeloo-
tion. He will bo promptly conhrmed
by tho Senate, aud it is probablo that
tho vote will be unanimous.
Mr. Fuller has always beon R con
Distent Democrat. He was a dologate
to tho DomocrStio National Conven
tions of 18G4, 1872, 1876 nnd 1880.
Tho President has beon anxious to
give him an office ever since tho bo
trirminrr of hi8 administration, and
o o
has offered him successively tho po
sitions of Solicitor-Gonoral,now fillod
by Mr. Jonks ; the Civil Service Com-
missionership, which Mr. Oberly ac
cepted ; the Pacific Kailroad Com-
missionersbip, to which Mr. tattler
was afterwards appointed, and the Inter-State
Commerce Commissioner-
ship, which Hon. W. R. Morrison af
terwards received. He declined all
of them, but the last and groatest he
has accepted.
The Sonata Committeo on Foreign
Relations has mado a favorable re
port on the Chineso treaty recently
negotiated by Mr. Cleveland. It will
probably bo ratified by the Senate in
a short time. Another triumph lor
tho Domooratio administration.
Speaker Carlisle will, it is under
stood, make the closing speech on the
Democratio side in the general de
bate on tho Mills Tariff Bill, which
has some ten days to run yet.
Tho President has been compelled,
in the interest of the public, to put
his veto upon quite a number of small
bills of late.
It is thought that the Blair Educa
tional Bill is dead, so far as the pres
ent session of Congress is concerned.
The Senate Committee on Inter-
State Commerce have decided to re
port an entirely new bill, to take the
place of the prosent Inter-State Com
merce law.
A bill baa been introduced in the
Senate to increase the pensions ol
soldiers and sailors who contracted
heart disease in tho service, and one
in the House, giving a pension to all
soldiers or sailors who served 90 days
and over, at the rate of one cent per
month for acb day of actual service
Should this last bill become alaw.it
is estimated that it would require 1,
500 extra clerks for one year to make
up the rolls, etc, which would bo ab-j
aolutely necessary.
Tbe House Committee on Territo
ries are trying to get the Committee
on Rules to report a resolution pro
viding for an evening session of tha
House on Monday, to consider tho
bill organiring the Territory of Osk

Galveston, Texas, May 7, 1888.
Editob Fkkb Pbess: Tbo case
against tho sureties on W. J. Burk's
official bond, as County Treasurer,
was conoladetl in the District Court
on Saturday, April 28. A vordict was
brought in for the County against
Burk and his bondsmen for $10,074.11,
which is tho full extont of tho claim
upon whioh the case wont to the jury.
The returns of the eleotion hold on
April 28th for a floater representa

election of Hon. Guy M. Bryan, of
Galveston Connty.

of Galveston, died in this city April
A few weeks ago water was struck
at tbe Ice and Cold Storage Compa
ny's artesian woll in this city, the flow
being greater than that of any other
well ever bored here, but not being
satisfied with tho flow, it was at
tempted to increase it artificially by
a pumping the water out proooss.
The result was a complete stoppage
of the flow. This necessitated extra
timo and oxpenso in repairing the
damage, and after considerable work

of tho largo flow.

Wednosday morning tho Galveston
News appeared in a complete new
dross, surprising its readers beyond
degree by its wonderfully improved
appoaranco. The press of the News
has boen changed from a type web
porlocting printing machine into a
a stereotype printer. Tho stereotype
department is filled with all the nec
essary modern machinery, and the
entranco to the large establishment
now presents a far more metropolitan
air. Tho News is now unquestiona
bly tho noatest paper typographically
in tho Stato, which will incroaue its
already largo patronage and popular
ity. This change on the part of the
News demonstrates the fact that
" Galveston and the News are still do

On Friday tbe final decree was en

Farmers in the United State seeing -the
price of thoir products . falji and
the value of mortgages rise and bus
iness depressions deepen, millions of
them have come to imagine that this
condition is caused by the .protective
tariff. Many of them , believe that
evon were it but pared down jk
that it would brighten their prospects
and hotter the situation. In England
the farmers find themselves in the ,
same goneral condition; falling prices
deepening gloom, debt and decay.
Thoy have free trade there and many
of them believe that if they only had
a protective tariff all would bo well
and good times come agaih. It may
be interesting to the farmers in this
country who honestly believe that
lower tariff would bring them pros
perity to learn the actual condition of
agriculture in England under free
trade. Mr. Chaplin the English Min
ister of Agriculture, in a speech de
livered lately in the House of Com
mons thus describes it:
The loss in England by deficient
agricultural values could not be less
than 50,000,000, . an amount equal
to a reduction of one fourth in tbe
export trade of the country. Many
thousands of acres of land had gone
out of cultivation, and there had been
a concurrent decrease in cattle and
sheep. Another effect on the depress .
inn was the increase in the masses of
unemployed. Reliable estimates
showed 700,000 idle, owing to the
paralysis of agriculture, while those
employed were foroed to work at
greatly reduced wages. What could
the government do to assist to a hot
ter state of affairs! He presumed it
would not be by a return to protec
tion. .
No doubt it may relieve the minds .
of the overburdened and impoverish
farmers here and there to declaim
against protection and free trade, res-,
peotlvely; but it is not strange that
so many of them are blind to the real
causes of their present distress and
blind to the fact that neither proteo-
tion nor free trade can relieve them.
The same systems are in operation to
rob the producers in both countries.
Nor does it make any difference that
an oligarchy with an old woman as a
figurehead rules in England and .
Wall Street with a deraooratio or re
publican president as a figurehead
rulos in America. The results and
conditions are similar under both.

Unnecessary and Unprofitable.
Some months ago Congressman
Plumb, of Illinois, in investigating
tbo reoords discovered that the re
funding act undor which the $736.
000,000 of 4 per cent bonds now out
standing were issued was changed af
ter its passage and the word "after
substituted in the plaoe of the word
"for, making the act read "payable
at tbe ploasure of the Unitod States
after thirty years," instead of "for
thirty years, as it was voted. Oth
er members of the House who have
examined the records concur in the
opinion that the forgery was effected
after the act was passed. A resolu
tion was introduced providing for a
special committee to investigate the
matter, The Judiciary committee of
the House has reported adversely
against tho appointment of the com
mittee. The committee report says
that it "would be unnecessary and un
profitable." Of course it would be
unprofitable, because, as usual, np
matter bow strong and plain the
proof of the fraud and forgery discov
ered in tbe transaction so long as it
was at pnblio expense nothing would
be dono to right it The change of
a single word means the loss ef many
millions of dollars to the Amwicau
Eeople, and all to be paid ultimately
y American labor, hence it is "ua
neueesary" to investigate it Wert
the facts reversed, were it discovered .
that a forgery had been effected in
some act in tbe interest of the maes- -es
and against some favored 'class,
with what alacrity and unanimity
Congress would demand an investi
gation and a correction Then it
would bo "nooessary and profitable."
On with the steal it is comparatively
a small one anyhow where there art
so many to pay it Southwest
