Omdurman, Opposite Khartoum on the
Nile, Nubia, Sept. 2.—(By camel post to
N'asey.)—The sirdar, General Herbert
Kitchener with khalifa black stand
ard captured during the battle, entered
Omdurman, the capital of Mahdiam, at
'4 o'clock this afternoon at the head of
the Anglo-Egyptian column, atier com
pletely routing the Dervishes and dealing
a death blow to Mahdiam.
Roughly, our losses were 200, while
thousands of the Dervishes were killed
and wounded. Last night the Anglo
'Kgyptian army encamped at Agaiza, eight
miles from Omdurman. The Dervishes
iwere three miles distant. At dawn the
cavalry patrolling toward Omdurman dis
covered the enemy advancing to the at
tack in battle array, chanting war songs.
Their front consisted of infantry and cav
alry, stretched out for three or four mile}.
Countless banners fluttered over their
masses and their copper and brass drums
resounded through the ranks of the sav
age warriors who advanced unswervingly
with all their old-time ardor. Our in
ifantry formed outside the camp. On the
left were the First battalion of North
umberland fusileers, the Second battalion
Lancashire fusileers and the First bat
talion grenadier guards with the Maxim
battery, manned by the Royal Irish fusi
leers. In the center were the First bat
italion Warwickshire. First battalion
Cameron Highlanders and the First bat
talion Warwickshire, First battalion
ims worked by a detachment of the royal
'artillery under Major Williams. On our
'right were the Soudanese brigades, com
manded by General Maxwell and General
(McDonaid. The Egyptian brigades held
the reserves and both flanks were sup
ported by itiaxim-Nordenfeld batteries.
At 7:20 a. m. the enemy crowded the
'ridges above the camp and advanced
steadily in enveloping formation.
Swept Down the iu.ilalde.
At 7:40 our artillery opened fire which
Was answered by the Dervish riflemen.
Their attack developed on our left and
in accordance with their traditional tac
tics they swept down the hillside with
the design of rushing our flank. But the
I withering fire maintained for 15 minutes
by all our line frustrated the attempt
and the Dervishes, balked, swept toward
our center, upon which they concentrated
'a fierce attack.
A large force of horsemen, trying *o
| face a continuous hail of bullets from the
Cameron Highlanders, the Lincolnshire
regiment and the Soudanese, was literal

of the entire body, whose dead strewed

Magnificent Ruahea.
( The bravery of the Dervishes can hard
.ly be overstated. Those who carried the
1 flags struggled within a hundred yards
'of our fighting line. When the Dervishes
withdrew behind the ridge in front of
their camp the whole force marched in
echelon battalions toward Omdurman.
When our troops surmounted the crests,
the Soudanese on the right came to at
' tack those who had reformed under the
- rocky eminence and had massed around
, the black standard of the khalifa in or
j der to make a supreme effort to retrieve
the fortunes of the day. A mass 15,000
strong bore down on the Soudanese. Gen
' eral Kitchener swung round the center
i and left of the Soudanese and seized the
rocky eminehce and the Egyptians, hith
( erto in reserve, joining the firing line. In
10 minutes and before the Dervishes could
: drive their attack home, the flower of the
I khalifa's army was caught in a depression
i and within a zone of withering cross
fire from three brigades, with the attend
( ant artillery. The devoted malidists
strove heroically to make headway, but
every rush was stopped, while their main
• body was literally mown down by a sus
■ tained deadly cross-fire.

Defiantly the Dervisues planted their
standards and died beside them. Their
1 dense masses gradually melted to com-'

broke and fled, leaving the field white
with the jibbah-clad corpses, which like
a snowdrift, dotted the spot.
! At 11:15 the sirdar ordered an advance
i and our whole force in line drove the
scattered remnant of the foe into the des
ert, our cavalry cutting off their retreat
to Omdurman.

< Among the chief incidents of the bat
< tie was a brilliant charge by the Twenty-
N first lancers, under Lieutenant Colonel
Martin. Galloping down on a detached
body of the enemy they found the Der
* vish swordsmen massed behind and were
forced to charge home against great odds.
The lancers charged through and kept
. the Dervish horde at bay. Lieutenant
Grenfelt, nephew of Sir Francis Grenfelt,
was killed, four other officers were wound
ed, 21 men were killed and 20 wounded.
I The Egyptian cavalry were in close

THE PEOPLE AXE EXCITED.
The Minister of War Reiigna Be
cnaae tlie Dreyfua Cane la to He
Keviaed on Account of the Henry
Forgery—Very Weak Argunienta
From Him.
Paris, Sept. 5.—M. Cavaignac Saturday
sent the following letter of resignation to
M. Brisson, premier and the president of
the council:
"I have the honor to send you and beg
you to transmit to the president of the
republic my resignation as minister of
war. There exists a disagreement be
tween us, which being prolonged, would
paralyze the government at a time when
it most needs full unity of decision. I
remain convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus
and am determined as heretofore to com
bat a revision of the case. Ido not in
tend to shirk the responsibility of the
present situation, but I can not assume
it without being in accord with the chief
of the government to which 1 have the
honor to belong."
These are the circumstances which led
M. Cavaignac to resign: After the dis
covery of Lieutenant Colonel Henry's
forgery the government sought means to
reassure the public. The question of re
vision was broached. Certain ministers
believed the time had come to throw full
light and to establish every responsibili
ty. M. Cavaignac strongly objected. He
declared that he was convinced of the
guilt of Dreyfus.
M. Brisson vainly pointed out to M.
Cavaignac that the revision would be
.purely judicial.
M. Cavaignac replied that revision
could only be justified if some new fact
developed to show that there had been a
judicial error and that no such fact ex
isted, Henry's forgery being subsequent
to the conviction of Dreyfus and only in
directly connected with it.
M. Bourgeois, called from Switzerland,
made a new effort but M. Cavaignac
still refused. The latter saw M. Brisson,
the premier, and declared that his deter
initiation was immovable and that he
would resign. After M. Cavaignac's de
parture, a conference was held at the min
istry of the interior between M. Brisson,
Minister Bourgeois and M. Sarrien. About
9 o'clock M. Cavaignac's letter of resig
nation was received. It is assumed that
a majority of the cabinet accept the views
of M. Brisson as the others retaiu
their portfolios. The resignation of M.
Cavaignac enables the government to de
cide the matter and it is believed M. Cav
aignac's successor at the war office will
soon be appointed and a definite resolu
tion taken.
Populace Inflamed.
The Dreyfus agitation is not abating.
The populace was again inflamed today
by posters, printed by Siecle, with which
the town has been plastered. They re
produce two letters which Dreyfus wrote
to the minister of war in 1894 and one
which he wrote to his counsel, De Mage,
in 1895, protesting innocence and denying
that he ever had been guilty of any indis
cretion. The posters also deal at length
with the fact that Colonel Piequart wrote
on July 9 affirming the falsity of Lieu
tenant Henry's documents, and they de
cry the arrest and imprisonment of Pic
quart.

U OF PRIZE MONEY
SEVENTEEN MILLIONS IN ALL.
The Nary la the Safest and Dent Paid
Work In the Time of War, With
Its Chances for Rrlnes, as Few
Are Killed In Battle.
New York, Sept 6. —A dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says:
At least $17,000,000 in prize money will
be distributed among sailors as a result
of the war with Spain. More than a half
of this award will be in accordance with
that section of the law providing for the
payment of bounty to persons aboard the
vessels that sunk the Spanish fleet.
Although not a penny of prize money
has yet been turned into the treasury
Judge Advocate Lemley and his chief
clerk, Mr. Hanna, are engaged in consid
ering the various claims for prize money
that have been filed by the officers and
men, and in passing upon the various
questions which have arisen.
From the official report of Admiral
Montojo, commanding the Spanish fleet
at Manila, there were 1875 persons aboard
his ships. The bounty amounts to $187,-
600, which congress will be asked to ap
propriate during the coming session. One
twentieth of this sum belongs to Rear
Admiral Dewey, commander-in-chief, a"nd
he will therefore be $9375 richer than he
was before the war.
Sampson's Blur Share.
Rear Admiral Sampson has realized a
snug little fortune as a result of the war.
As commander-in-chief of the North At
lantic fleet he will get one-twentieth of
every prize taken by the North Atlantic
fleet and one-twentieth of the head money
allowed for the vessels destroyed off San
tiago and in Cuban ports. It is estimated
that he will finally receive about $40,0'J0
as his share of prize money.
In determining the amount of head
money due officers and men it will be
necessary for the department to decide

Mrs Pinkham has done much to make
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor

ner of the earth there isconstantly com
ing the most convinclug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound in overcoming female Ills. Here
Is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Horner St., Johnstown, Fa , which is
earnest and straight to the point;
• Dear Mbs. Pi.nkham.—l feel It my
duty to tell all suffering women that I
think your remedies are wonderful. I
tad trouble with my head, dizzy spells
and hot Cashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could notsleep
well, tad kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
Since taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble. I can eat and
deep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to be
had for female troubles."

whether a vessel destroyed is superior or
inferior to her antagonist. If the latter
the American ship will be entitled to $200
for each person on board the enemy. Of
course this will swell the amount of prize
money due the admiral.
It is estimated that, including the Mer
cedes, sunk at the mouth of the harbor
of Santiago, there were 2402 persons on
board the Spanish fleet destroyed by
Sampson's command, which was superior
to the enemy and the amount of head
money due the fleet will consequently ag
gregu-te $249,200. Besides these ships
Spanish mpn-of-war were sunk at Manza
nillo, Nipe and other points along the
Cuban coast, the destruction of which
each means a prize for the officers and
men participating in the work.
Many Questions to Settle.
Lega 1 officers of the department will
be requested to determine whether mer
chant vessels carrying guns in their hold
like th« Santo Domingo, which was sunk
by the? Eagle, come within the meaning of
the section providing for the payment
of bounties for persons on board. These
question may delay' the adjudication of
amounts due officers and men interested.
The department was notified a few days
ago by Judge Locke of Florida that lie
would turn into the treasury the net
amount resulting from the sale of the
cargo of coal on board the British tramp
steamer Restormel. The notification was
subsequently withdrawn.
The Restormel's case is the furthest ad
vanced of any prizes. Owners of the
great majority of the captured vessels
have taken appeals from the Courts which
have condemned their ships as prizes and
it will be many months before the su
preme court of the United States is able
to pass on them.

DEAFNESS CAN NOT DE CURED
By local applications, as they can not reacli the
diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitu

Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect hear

the result, and unless the Inflammation can be

nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
