During last year they aggregated
$62,4C1,304, of which nearly $35,000,000,
or considerably more than one-half,
went to universities, colleges and other
educational institutions. Of the re
maining $27,000,000 a little more thana
half went to charities, while nearly
$9,000,000 went to churches. The re
mainder of $5,000,000 was divided
about evenly among museums, art gal

was the largest public giver of the
year, his benefactions footing up
$4,225,000, of which all but $625,000

All the wonders of this age are not
found in the inventions that annihi

protect health and prolong life. The
chemist is achieving things as remark
able in their way, although not al
ways so desirable, as the inventions of
the electnicvm and the machinist.
What would our ancestors have
thought, for instance, of the chemists'
imitation of many common articles of
food? Our ancestors used to eat real
honey; we consume a substitute made
of glucose, corn and sulphuric acid.
Our olive oil is often cottonseed oil;
our butter and lard beef fat; our coffee
peas, beans and molasses; our pepper

sometimes under suspicion.- A fluid
closely resembling it can be made of
caustic soda, saleratus, salt and water.
Our forefathers of 1S01 certainly had
an advantage over U3 here. The chem
ists were not in league against them.
But, on the other hand, we are vastly
more in debt to the chemist than our
ancestors for the remedies which bring
hope to the sickroom. The modern
pharmacopoeia is a monument to hi3

LIST OF CONCESSIONS
To 1)2 Demanded of ih Cubans
By tho United Slates.
COMMITTEE DISCUSSES MATTER
Naval Stations, Control of For
eign Affairs, Sanitation and
Ante-War Debt Arc Items.
A Washington special Bays: Tho
senato committee on relations with
Cuba met Saturday to consider a pro
posed amendment t tho army appro
priation bill providing for tho dispo
sition of Cuban affaire. The propo
sition was prepared by tho Republican
members of the committee and is said
to bo satisfactory to most of them.
The proposed amendment recites
the so-called Teller amendment to the
Spanish war resolution and then srives
the president authority to withdraw
troops from Cuba when, in his judg
ment, the provisions of tho Teller
amendment are realized.
The prositiona embodied in the pro
posed amendment include tho follow
That the United States shall have
supervision of all treaties ith foreign
couutries made by tho republio of
That Cuba shall not undertake to
pay tho debt incurred by Spain in the
war with Cuba prior to or after the
intervention of the United States.
That Cuba shall aprree either to lease
or to sell to the United States such
coaling or naval stations as in the
opinion of the president of the United
States may be necessary to the protec
tion of the interests of this country.
That tho United Slates shall have
sufficient supervision of the laws of
Cuba relating to sanitation to protect
this country from epidemics liable to
The idea is that these provisions
shall be included in a treaty to bo
mado with Cuba, but that they need
not be a part of the constitution. It
is understood that tbe draft of the
amendment containing these provis
ions was submitted to the president
and the secretary of war, and that they
expressed themselves as being in fav
or of their wording.
The minority members of tho com
tee expressed themselves williDg to
come to an understanding upon these
general lines. Indeed, some of the
most important suggestions were made
by the minority, Senator Butler, of
North Carolina, being one of the fore
most movers in the matter. They in
sist, however, upon many verbal
amendments, thus evincing a determi
nation to aid in giving form to the
provision as well as suggesting its gen
When the committee adjourned there
were still important differences to be
reconciled, and the members separated
with the understanding that another
meeting would be held on Monday.
Members on both sides of the com
mittee expressed the hope that an
agreement would be reached, but all
said that the proceedings had not gone
far enough to render it certain that
the result would be attained.
Ono prominent point to which the
committee is giving special attention,
although that point may not be em
phasized or even mentioned in the
proposed amendment, is the relation
of Cuba to the Isle of Pines. There
is some disposition among the Cubans
to hold on to that island so near their
shores, while there is apparently no
disposition on the part of the United
States to release that possession, on
the ground that the island was ac
quired as a result of the Spanish war.
QUESTION OF DOUBLE PAY.
Charge Made by Bailey Are to Be In
vestigated By a Committee.
The house Saturday adopted a reso
lution to investigate the pay of its
empleyees as a result of the condition
of affairs ascertained during the re
cent debate on the deficiency bill, and
the speaker appointed a committee
consisting of Mr. Moody, of Massa
chusetts; Mr. Overstreet, of Indiana;
Mr, Long, of Kansas; Mr. Bailey, of
Texas, and Mr. Newlands, of Nevada,
to make the investigation.
THOUSANDS DRAWN OUT.
False Humors Causa Heavy Ban On a
Staunch Pennsyl van la Bank.
False and unfounded rumors caused
a run on the German National bank of
Allegheny.Pa., Tuesday, during which
$180,000 was paid out to frightened
depositors. The excitement at one
time was intense, causing almost a
panio and giving the police all they
could do to prevent an outbreak.
Tho bank is a state and national
bank, and one of the most reliable in
the city. It is thoroughly trusted by
the business men of Allegheny, and
Cashier Helm said that every demand
would be met promptly.

Homo lishernieu early Friday morn
ing found a packet containing tho pa
pers of Purser liooney. Among them
wan tho passenger list and a bunch of
cancelled passenger tickets and
there were names on the lint whoso
canceled passenger tickets did not ap
pear among thoso recovered, it is
assumed that they laid over either at
Yokohama, Kobe or Honolulu. That
they wero not on tho vessel at the time
bhe went down is certain.
Up to a late hour Friday night only
eleven bodies had been recovered, six
whites, four Chinese and one Japan
ese. Surveyor of the Port Spear has es
tablished a patrol along the ocean near
Baker's Beach and along bay shore in
side Fort Toint. Thus far hi1 men
have picked up four mail bags, one of
them washing near Baker's and the
others near the Fort Toiut life saving
stations. Tho surveyor has given or
ders that all tho fishing boats must
report at the customs office.
All bodies brought in by them and
all wreckage and floatsara picked up
by fishermen must be accounted for
to the officials ut tho bargo office. In
this way it is thought that tho looting
of mail bags and trunks may bo stop
ped. Among other effects picked up
by fishermen was the box containing
Captain "Ward's papers. The police
have established a patrol outside the
beach sou'h of Fort Winfield Scott.
The value of the caigo of tho liio de
Janeiro has not been determined,
owing to the absenco of important pa
pers, but it is variously estimated at
from $300,000 to $000,000. Among
some papers found floating near the
scene of the disaster was a copy of tho
manifest, showing all the consignees
with the exception of the Chinese
firms. The cargo consisted principally
of silk, tea, rice and other oriental
products. There was no treasure
aboard as was at first reported.
Of the 200 sacks of mail carried by
the Rio de Janeiro only twelve have so
far come to the surface.
The wreck of the Bio, which for a
while hung on a pinnacle of the rock
where she struck in the Golden Gate,
so that parts of the upper works wero
visible, has slid off into deep water
and is now entirely out of sight.
Pilot Captain Jordan has been a
master mariner on the Pacific coast
for over twenty years and declares the
loss of the Bteamer could not have
been foreseen. According to his story,
the vessel drifted half a mile broad
side in the fog that enveloped the
home bound steamer like a pall and
no man could have judged either the
direction or the velocity of the invisi
ble current that changed her course
and sent her on the Port Point rock.
A PAH LI A M ETA II Y MOVE.
Senator Morgan Gets Canal Bill Before
The Senate For a Short Time.
During Saturday's session of the
senate, by a skillful parliamentary
move, Senator Morgan forced the Nic
arauga canal bill to the front after
that measure had been asleep for many
weeks. By a close reading of the pro
ceedings Friday, Mr. Morgan discov
ered that the oleomargarine bill had
lost its position as the unfinished bus
iness of the senate, and with the calen
dar thus cleared the Nicarauga canal
bill regained the status it held over
two months ago as the unfinished bus
iness of the senate.
Mr. Morgan's discovery created
something of a sensation, and this was
heightened when the presiding officer
sustained his position and laid tho
canal bill before tho senate. Mr. Mor
gan's fiuccess was short-lived, however,
i as the fortification bill was taken up,
thus displacing the canal Jbill, which,
with the oleomargarine bill and ship
ping bill, takes its place on the calen
dar. The day was given to the forti
fication and the army appropriation
bills, the former being passed.

4 1 cannot say enough n regard to Lydia E. rinkham's Vegetable Compound.
It has done mo more good then all the doctors. I have been troubled with
female weakness in its worst form for about ten years. I had leuei;rhoea
and was so weak that I could not do my housework.
I also had falling of the womb and inflammation of the womb and ovaries,
and at menstrual periods I suffered terribly. At times my back would ache
very hard. I could not lift anything or do any heavy work ; was not able tc
stand on my feet long at a time. My husband spent hundreds of dollars Vth
doctors but they did me no good. My husband's sister wrote what the Vege
table Compound had done for her, and wanted me to try it, but I did not then
think it would do me any good. After a time, I concluded to try it, and I can
truly say it does all that is claimed for it. Ten bottles of the Vegetable Cora
and seven packages of Sanative Wash have made a new woman of me, I h'i -had
no womb trouble sinco taking the fifth bottle. I weigh more than I hffve
in years ; can do all my own housework, sleep well, have a pood appetite, and
now feel that life is worth living. I owe all to Lydia E. Pinkham's Xeg
etable Compound. I feel that it has saved my life and would not be with
out it for anything. I am always glad to recommend it to all my sex, for 1
know if they will follow Mrs. Pinkham's directions, they will be cured."
