CHARGES AGAINST JUDGE M'COR
MICK NOT SUSTAINED.
Tlio President Appoints Him to the Posi

feat Citulnot on llerlngSea Mutters.
Washington, March I). In tho de
partment of justico it is said that all tho
charges mado in tho Bankhead resolu
tion ugalnst Judgo McCormick were not
only maturely considered by tho chief
executive, but that tv special agent was
sent to Texas to inquire into thorn whon
tho namn of Jndgo McCormick was up
as a candidate for tho place, dn tho cir
cuit court of appeals.
Tho result of tho investigation was
perfectly satisfactory to President Har
rison with McCoraiick's character. Ho
then appointed him to tho position to
which ho aspired. Since then thoro has
been no change in tho views of tho pres
ident in regard to tho appointee. It was
thought tiiat tho charges amounted to
nothing moro than might result either
in tho withdrawal of his naino or a re
fusal on tho part of tho senate to confirm
him. It is voll understood now that
thero will bo no impeachmont proceed
ings; that his name will not bo with
drawn nnd that ho will bo confirmed.
His friends in Texas have been ex
tremely active of late, as not only tho
Toxas inoinbers of the house, but the
Texas senators are daily in receipt of in
dorsements from citizens from every
part of the commonwealth. Some let
tors are still received urging an investi
gation, but tho majority declare him to
bo innocent of everything said against
him and testify to his liigh charactor as
a judge, a lawyer and a citizen.
The Anti-Sliver Men Are Very Sore
over their defeat and say that the
snooker in forcing tho matter on the
house beforo tho proceedings of Satur
day were read and approved, was guilty
of conduct which will greatly injure tho
party in tho east.
Mnch interest is now manifested in
tho course tho Republicans will pur
sue in regard to tho matter. Bontello
said he desired tho silver question
brought up that the Democrats of tho
east should know exactly where their
party stood in this matter. This is all
right, but tho Republicans have it in
their power, aided by tho anti-free coin
ago men, to force tho committee on
rules to bring in a rule to stop tho do-
bale. The free coinage men do not de
sire to resort to such a rule if possible to

The pure food bill was taken up as
unfinished business, tho question being
on Mr. Coko's amendment to striko out
sections 7 and 8.
Mr. Faulkner moved to amend the
seventh section by striking out the words
"that every person manufacturing oi
oxposing for sale or delivering to a pur
chaser any drug or article of food" and
inserting in lieu thereof the words "that
every person who manufactures foi

was agreed to.
A vote was th en taken on Mr. Coko's
motion to striko out sections 7 and 8 and
tho motion was rejected.
Mr. Cockroll moved to strike out sec

tucky. As a mark of respect to tho memory ot
Representative Kendall the house ad
journed. The Treaty Considered.
Washington, March 9. Tho sonato
in executive session considered the arbi
tration treaty received from the presi
dent. Tho text of tho treaty was read
in full nnd there followed an animated
but no acrimonious disenssion of tht
document. It soon became npparcni
the treaty was to recieve severe and
formidable opposition. This opposition
took several forms and there arc at leasl
threo different views on tho subject. Ot
one hand a body of senators resented
bitterly tho idea of ratifying any nrbi
tration treaty. They held the right ot
tho United SUites to tho waters acquired
from Russia was boyond question nnd ii
would be a cowardly surrender on the
part of this government for it to consent
to submit its right to tho uncertain de
cision of foreign arbitrators.
A considerable number of senator
appeared to believo tho approval of the
treaty to be a distinct gam in the diplo
matic battle, as it committed Great
Britain to a recognition of tho fact thai
tho United States had a claim to juriti
diction of the waters of Boring sea undtu
the Russian titlo, a point which she hat
heretof oro steadily refused to allow.
The third party thought tho treaty
should not be approved finally withoui
the addition of a clauso renewing the
modus vivendi. Some of tho senators
took the ground that while tho treaty
might bo safely ratified by tho senate
the administration should bo instructed
in the event of the continued refusal ol
tho British government to insuro the
protection of the seal during tho course
of tho arbitration, to order vessels of ths
United States to seize every offending
vessel without regard to nationality.
They announced if troublo resulted from
the adoption of this course they were
prepared to fully support tho adminis
tration, taking all the necessary steps
to give effect to tho existing laws of tho
United States for tho protection of seals.
After discussion had progressed in this
strain for an hour tho treaty was re
ferred to tho committee on foreign rela
tions. TheCnbinet on llerlngSea.
Washington, March 9. The meeting
of the cabinet was devoted almost en
tirely to the consideration of tho Boring
sea question with a view to deciding on
a plan of action in caso Great Britain
adheres to her refusal to renow for the
present season, pending arbitration, the
modus vivendi of last year. Thero was
smaller attendance than usual, owing to
the absenco of Messrs. Blaine, Fostoi
and Noblo. Tho matter was thoroughly
discussed and it is understood it was de
termined to insist upon a renewal of the
modus vivendi for tho preser vation oi
seals in Bering sea.
The president and every member ot
tho cabinet present participated in the
discussion, and the opinion was unani
mous that the position assumed by the
British government is untenable and not
justified by the condition of tho sealing
industry. The argument made that the
opening of Bering sea for tho presout
season to tho indiscriminate slaughter
of peals by poachers woidd undoubtedly
result in tho serious injury if not total
destruction of tho industry and thus de
feat the very object sought in the nego
tiations botween tho two countries.
Inasmuch as Sir Julian Pauncefote,
British minister, had a conforenco with
Wharton, who was acting secretary of
state, it is inferred he was apprised of
tho president's earnest desire for agree
ment between the two countries respect
ing tho present boaling season that will
preserve the statu quo of tho fisheries
until tho main question can be arbitra
ted. This government is desirous of
reaching a prompt agreement in regard
to tho fisheries in order that it may be
officially promulgated in advance of the
departure of the sealing fleets now fit
ting out in this country and Canada.
Since tho above was written it is
learned that Acting Secretary Wharton
delivered to tho British minister tho re
ply of this government to Salisbury's
noto, declining to renow the modus
vivendi. Tins reply reiterates tho posi
tion of this government, and insists on a
renewal of tho modus vivendi of 1691 foi
tho coming season.

Some of theso little proprietors of sirs
parillos put up in half-pint bottles are en
vious of the increasing popularity of Dr.
John Bull's ftu-saparilla, put up as it is in
large quart bottles, and intimate that their
is more concentrated. This is as false as
deceit can be. A. tcaspoonful of Hull's
Sarsaparilla contains more concentrated
medicinal virtue than a tablespoonful of
any other sarsaparilla made. A bottle of
Dr. John Hull's Sarsapnrilla contains six
times the curative virtue of a bottle of any
other blood purifier made. No exception
is made. Now an invalid wants his
money's worth. Ho wants good measure.
Therefore, unless misled through ignor
ance, when his system needs a blood purl
fler, when his system needs a tonic, when
his system is brcaldng down from blood
impurity or some wasting disease, ho will
demand of his druggist a bottle of Bull's
Sarsaparilla, and on no occasion he per
suaded to take anything that may be off
ered in its stead as being "just as good."
There is no other remedy so good as Bull's
Sarsaparilla for such diseases as scrofula,
syphilitic affections, sult-rhuum, itch, ec
zema, pimples, sortu, rheumatism, lam
back, swollen joints, aching muscles, nerv
ous weakness, nervous debility, loss of
appetite, loss of ilesli, loss of strength,
sleeplessness, premature old age, etc.
