CHARGES AGAINST PATENT
MEDICINES.
Most of the charges against patent j
medicines as a class have no founda- ,
tion in fact and are manifestly unfair i
and unjust.
There are a large number of stand
ard remedies like Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound used in thousands
of American homes which have saved ■
hundreds of dollars to families who •
could not afford to consult a physician, i
and they have answered the purpose,
equally as well.

United Confederate Veterans

TEXAS LEADS IN THE
NUMBER OF VETERANS
Associated Press.
Memphis. Tenn.. June 9. —Adjutant
General William E. Mickle last night
gave out his annual report, which was
distributed among those in attendance
at the Confederate reunion this morn
>ng.
General Mickle points with pride to
the fact that at no period of the his
tory of the United Confederate Vet
|erans’ organization has sueb 'a large
! pereeptage of the members paid their
I dues in full, and this has resulted in
j the disbandment of much fewer eamps
। than usual. Death continues as an im
portant factor, according to General
Mickle, in the inroads made upon the
membership, aud to this cause, and not
to lack of patriotism, he says, should
the loss of many members be attributed.
The report, which is addressed to
General Clement A. Evans, general com
manding, is as follows:
“In presenting a brief summary of
matters connected with my office for
the past twelve months, I have great
pleasure in again reporting a most sat
isfactory condition of affairs. The work
of nature is rapidly reducing the num
bers of our glorious federation, but the
interest and enthusiasm of those re
maining continue unabated. There is
something peculiarly pathetic in the j
love these old men feel for the eause, '
and the longing with which they look I
forward from the closing of one re- I
union to the time of the next annual 1
gathering thereafter. As they grow in 1
years and become feebler in body, their .
remembrance of the trying times of j
the sixties and the gallant men with ;
whom they were associated, sharing
common dangers and privations, is
keener, and it becomes a passion, deep
and intense, to make preparations to
meet their old comrades in arms. Sueh '
a feeling adds a charm to the character
of these old soldiers, aud makes them
doubly dear to each other.
Thirty-two New Camps.
“The area in which there is mate
rial for the formation of camps is not
wide; but in certain sections there are
left a few survivors of our grand arm
ies, who wish to got in touch with their
fellows in their able work; and where
practicable they organize themselves
into camps, small in number though
they be. During the past year there
have been chartered thirty-two new
camps, distributed among the divisions
as follows: Oklahoma. 10; Texas, 8;
Pacific, 3; Arkansas. 2; Mississippi, 2;
Georgia, 2; Alabama, Florida. Louis
iana, North Carolina and West Vir
ginia, 1.
“Under the circumstances this is a j
most gratifying state of affairs, and
should be a source of pleasure to every
member of our beloved order.
“On the other hand, there have been
many deaths and some removals among
our members, which has caused camps
in other portions of our territory to
forfeit their charters, and this should
cause surprise to no one when the ad
vanced age of nur members is recalled.
The showing presented in the subjoined
.table is far from presenting a discourag
ing symptom.

FILIBUSTER TO

POWER AGAIN
Secret Service Working On Ru
mored Plan to Have a Revo
lution In Venezuela.
RIFLES ALL READY
TO BE SHIPPED
Associated Press.
New York, June 9.—Secret service
men, closely cooperating with diplo
matic representatives of the new admin
istration in Venezuela, nre seeking in
this city the directing heads of an ex
tensive filibustering project to smuggle
30.000 rifles into that South American
republic, with the apparent intention of
furthering an uprising in the interest
of Cipriano Castro, the deposed presi
dent. according to the Herald. It is
claimed a plot which has been discov
ered has for its object the overthrow
of President Gomez and his regime and
thrt the ramifications of the scheme
have led to various cities in the Atlan
tic apd middle states. It is understood
that a quantity of rifles and ammuni
tion have already been purchased in
Chieagb, Rock Island, Ills., aud other
cities and that there now are at least
30.000 rifles either in or near New York
city ready to be shipped in the filibus-1
tering expedition. '
These assertions were brought to the
attention of the United States govern
ment officials in Washington by the
Venezuelan minister at Washington and
immediately secret service men were
assigned to prevent the departure of
any such filibustering expedition.
John E. Wilke, chief of the federal
secret service, arrived in New York
yesterday and assumed direction of his
men, their information being that the
leaders of the conspiracy are here.
According to the information obtain-1
cd by the secret service agents of'
Venezuela $1,000,000 has been subscrib
ed by a foreign interest in behalf of !
those who seek to rehabilitate Castro
in power in Venezuela. The reports of :
a large New York house which in the
past has figured in such undertakings
went to Paris early last month and
thence to Belgium, from where, soon
after his arrival, a great quantity of
rifles were shipped to this country,
passing through the customs house here
and being reshipped direct to St. Louis.
It is now understood that these rifles
with others purchased in this country
have been shipped back to the Atlantic
seaboard ready to be taken on by one
or more filibustering vessels.

MRS. GUGGENHEIM
AFTER ALIMONY
Is Suing to Annul Divorce
Granted Her Husband In
Chicago In 1901.
Associated Press.
New York, June 9.—The suit started
in Chicago yesterday by Mrs. Grace D
Guggenheim to annul her divorce of
1901 from William Guggenheim is tak
en by New York lawyers to indicate
that this is a step pieparat<»y to the
pushing of the suit she filed against
Guggenheim in this city last January
for support. Mrs. Guggenheim brought
suit for absolute divorce against the
youngest member of the family, sc
prominently identified with the smelt
ing interests of the country, in the
supreme court here, alleging then, as
now, that her Chicago divorce fr<m
Guggenheim was invalid. The plaintiff
made no mention of the amount of
alimony, but claimed that as the Chi
cago divorce was not legal she was
still his wife, and therefore entitled
to alimony. She set forth that her sub
sequent marriage to Jules Wahl had
nothing to do with her rights to sue
Guggenheim. Incidentally, she asserted
that Mr. Guggenheim’s second mar
riage was invalid.
Following the introductory argu
ments Justice Gerard adjourned the
hearing for a week. Mr. Guggenheim,
through counsel, asked for an indefi
nite adjournment that he might take
the depositions of witnesses abroad.
Mrs. Guggenheim opposed this, ueelar
ing she was in want. When the case
was called the following week there
was no response from either sHe and
there the matter rested until Mrs. Gug
genheim started her annulment case in
Chicago yesterday.
