SLATED TO CO The Effort to Reconsider Resolution Providing for His Discharge Failed —Capitol Bill Up in Senate Also. > Little Rock, Feb. 18.—The house refused to vote down tlx Parks resolution providing for the discharge of Geo. R. Mann, late Wednesday afternoon, after having spent the entire day in consideration of the measure. During the morning session the house voted to reconsider the resolution, the evident intern and purpose of this reconsidi ra tion being to vote the resolution down, on the ground that it has no legal value and represents merely a sentiment, and the real power lies in a bill to disch»rge Mann, as the state c ipitj! arch tec*. Mr. Haichett, of Van Buren, surprised the wkole house by the splendid effort he m ide against the resolution. He be i ves Geo. R Mann should be discharged, but he did not believe that a con current resolution would do it sod he challenged the advocates of the resolution to show that it would. He believed the pas.ing of the resolution would retard rallior t li -> ti arluirirp ihp cnln. tion of the matter, and favored voting it down and pressing the house bill bv Mr. Hurst, which provides for the dischaig; of Mann, to its early passage in stead. Mr. Parks then closed the dis cussion on the resolution, in its favor. He reiterated statements he had made formerly in its favor and charged that to vote against It'Would be trking the side of the contractors against the in terest of the state. As to the legal weight of the resolution itself he did not go into any particular analysis, but declared that Mann should be discharged and the sooner tne better. Final vote on the tesolution wastakin, showing 51 in favor of its adoption and 44 against it. * Following this action of the bouse Hurst called up house bill No. 165, of which he is the author, providing for the dis charge of Mann and empowering the governor to select another architect in his place. The hill was read the second time and tent to thj committee on the state capitol with other matters now before that committee. Mr. Hurst is a member of the com mittee on state capitol, and it is expected that the bill will he re ported back to the house without delay. The Senate.

Ltttle Rjck, Feb. 17.—The filing of suit in the circuit court here by Caldwell & Drak*, mak ing Thomas Cox defendant and alleging that the said Thomas Cox had slandered the contract ors by statements given out in a lull o ill 11 Li iuui iiiu^ uc v\ apa pci, from an interesting side-light on t e state capitol mess. The suit is lor $100,000, the contract ors claiming they bav<* been dam aged to that extent by the publi cation. The defendant is or.« of the best known business man of the city, being the head of the ThomasCox Machinery Company. It is alleged in the complaint filed against him that be stated in the published story which was sent from Little Reck, it seems, as a special news item that Caldwell & Drake had changed the plans of the new state capitol, in their construc tion, and furthermore, that the defendant had stated that the plaintiffs were responsible tor a change in the personnel of the state capitol commission and h-d worked to secure the removal of the old commission and the ap pointment of a new one Mr. Cox, who was a member of the old commission, says the state ment, as published, garbles the real statements made by him and statements appear in the story that he did not utter, or are made to appear in a light that entirely changes their original intent. He is not in the least worried over ihe suit, which for that matter, can not reach a hearing for more than a half a year, as the docket is full for that time. George R. Mann May Sue. It was icported in Little Kock last night thHt George R. Mann, who was referred to in the inter view on which the Caldwell & Drake suit is based, would also bring suit against Thomas Cox.

Little Rock. Feb. 18.—That neither Greaves nor Sumpter will rnn in the ejccial election to be called to fill the vacancy in the s note 1 r> tn the Thirty-first dis trict created by the Rente’s ac lion of yesterday, is the possibil (y held out by Hon. Will H Martin, law-partner of Col Greaves, of 11 t Spring*. A1 though Greaves is a Republican and Cel. Martin is a prominent Democrat, Mr. Martin has been ac ively engaged in furthering the rnds ot what he deems jus tice in the Greaves-Suiupter ecu test. Mr. Martin, speaking f »r M . Greaves, said that Mr. Greaves wou’d not again become a candi date unless Sumpter enters the r_.ee. It is Mr. Martin's express ed belief that Sumpter will not ;un as a Democratic candidate, which would mean that he would not run at all in the event that he did not secure a nomination in a Democratic i rimary, which Mr. Mar in says will be called soon. Mr. Martin and others who are familiar with the political line up in Garland county are of the opin ion that the existing organization will not endorse Sumpter’s candi dacy. There would have been otner candidates opposing Sump ter in the Democratic primaries in which he secured the nomina tion but for the apertion of a rule regarding the filing of names of nominees, which other possible candidates overlooked until too late. In refusing to enter the race unless Sumpter is a candidate Greaves will be following a con sistent course as he has repeated ly stated that he became a candi date only to prevent the people of his district being represented by Sumpter in the senate. Nevertheless. Mr. Greaves is dissatisfied at the action taken by the senate, which lie charac terizes as “cowardly" and Sump ter is apparently pleased and says that he will be in the race and will come back to the senate re-elected. “I think it was a cowardly ac tion on the part of the senate," “aid Mr. Greaves. “I cannot say that I am pleased with it as I believe I had enough votes to seat me." Sumpter said: “The proposi tion suits me allright. I expect to return homo nt once and maka preparations for the campaign." Governor Donaghey will an nounce his appointment of a suc cessor for Sumpter and will call a special election for the 31st Senatorial district which is com posed of Garland and Montgome ry counties HOT SPRINGS DISGUSTED Decision in Garland County Senatorial Contest Pleased Neither Side— Special Election Outlook. Fort Smith, Feb. lb.- United States Marshal Mayes reached Fort Smith Thursday morning returning from Hot Springs. Mr. Mayes was in Hot Springs when the news was received in that city of the action of the state senate in relation to the Greaves Sumpter contest and he says the action of the senate in declaring the (i lrlantl seat vacant disgust ed both sides to the contest. Many declared without regard to political affiliations that the sen ate found that Greaves had really and clearly carried the election, but lacked the moral courage to seat him. As to the present situation, said Mr. Mayes: “The outlook for the special election in Gar land county has many elements of uncertainty. I talked with one of the leading Democrats of the city, and he declared that if Sumpter and Greaves were again contestants in the special election Sumpter would be beaten 10 to 1.” Save Money by Buying Cham berlain'* Cough Remedy.

OKLAHOMA CRIM INAL CAPTURED ; Accused of Four Murders, Doc Hearn Surrendered to Deputy Sheriff Ben Gipson at r*‘.field—Sawed Out of Asylum. Doc Hearn, a coted Oklahoma criminal, was taken into custodi by Deputy Sheriff Ben Oipson at Hatfield TLursday afternoon and placed in the hands of Slier ff Cunningham and Deputy John | Bratcher, who brought him in on , No. 2 last night and turned him ; over to Sheriff George B.

END OF PET DETESTATION. ! New Yorker Finally Rid of the Dio piled High Hat. There is a certain man in New York ■ whose pet detestation Is a high hat. In his journey through life he has ac quired roauv dislikes, some prejudices, j and a few hatreds—but his feeling toward a high hat goea far beyond the i limits Implied by the mild word "hatred." However, family influences were brought lo bear on him when he had reached the proper milestone In hl» life, and these Influences were sc 'Uft oini (UPioiriu mat rvrutunuy ihe man in question purchased a hlgt hat; what is more, he actually donned It. But bis hatred abated not a jot. In fact. It grew. He used to open his hat box and eye the hat •-‘cionsly, mur deroualy. But thoughts of what the family would say if he should adopt vloleut measures always deterred him and every lime he shut the box;again leaving Ihe thing unharmed, and vented his rage In profanity. Once he and his family went tc live at a hotel In the country. And one night, with appalling suddenness that hotel raught fire. Fortunately, everybody in it was able to get out In safety. The young j man of the hat, after counting heads. ' and seeing that his people were out ol J danger, decided to dash Into the burn ' Ing building once more—there was ; still a bit of lime in order to see i whether ha might rescue a few more things from his room. In the excite ment attendant on the discovery of j the Are the hotel guests had been , obliged to look to their personal pife ty, without thinking overmuch of that of their belongings. Well, the young man, plunging gal lantly through flame and smoke, reached his room. There, the first thing which caught his eye was the high hat. With a look of diabolical glee he re garded It for a few seconds. Then— with an exclamation of delight—he ! kicked It Into the inmost part of the room, Into crackling flame and eddy ing smoke, far from all po slhls means of escape Then, diabolical glee still Illumining his features, he emerged a happy man.

CURES • CHRONIC ULCERS Any chronic ulcer shows nn unhealthy and impure condition of the Wood. It is a diseased condition of the flesh at that particular spot, caused and kept inflamed and irritated by a continual discharge into it, of un healthy matter from the circulation. No treatment can have any curative ef fect except a medicine which will renovate the blood and entirely remove the 'ause. Salves, washes, lotions, etc., are so etimes helpful in reducing in flammation, cleansing the ulcer, or perhaps lessening the discharge, but such applications do not reach the blood where the disease germs are located and can never effect a cure. S. S S. goes down into the circulation, drives out all impurities and morbid matter, and by nourishing the flesh with rich pure blood causes the place to heal naturally and permanently. S. S. S. does not make a surface cure, but by beginning at the bottom, and rebuilding broken-down tissue, and supplying healthful, healing qualities to the blood, causes the place to fill in with new, firm flesh, while it steadily but surely effects a permanent cure. The ulcer can not exist when the blood is pure, and S. S. S. will thoroughly purify the blood. Book on Sores md Ulcers and any medical advice free to all w ho write.
