WnBhinirton, April 19.-In reply to
fetter from the editor of the "Ham
ion Democrat," Hamilton, Ohio,
jelatirefco a paragraph which has
fceen going the rounds of the news
papers. Admiral Dewey to-day sent
be following communication :
"Washington, D.C., April 19, 1900.
IDearSir: I am in receipt oi your
utter of the 17th mst., asking if I am
correctly reported aw saying, 'Well,
jfjj you what a democrat is. In
time of war a democrat in a damned
traitor; in time of peace he is a
damned fool.' In reply I have to
itate that this is one of the thousands
of lies ottered concerning me, to at
tempt tocontradict all of which would
require more time than is at my com
mand. However, since you extend
the opportunity, it gives me great
pleasure to state that 1 have never
,ajd or thought of such a thing as
the foregoing statement accredited
tome- I have a very fond remem
brance of thousands and tens of
thousands of 'war democrats whom
1 knew, and wh were some of the
best fighters this country ever saw.
Terj truly, yours,
"Homer Card, Esq., Hamilton Dem
ocrat. Hamilton, Ohio."
Protest to Britain.
Pretoria, April 18. As soon at the
Berne award in the Delagoa Bay
Railway arbitration was published,
the Transvaal government offered to
fend Portugal the amount she was
condemned to pay ($.",,000,000),
which, however, was courteously de
clined, the statement leing made that
the money was already provided.
The government is receiving many
memorials from burghers on t he sub
ject ol sending the Boer prisoners to
St. Helena and will formally protest
to Great Britain on the subject.
Secretary of Stahe Keitz says the
Transvaal government is not taking
any resolution regarding the dost ruc
tion of the mines.
Mothers, beware of those secret
robbers of your baby's quiet and
health. Those sleepless nights and
king hours of tiresome vigil are caus
ed by those terrible enemies of child
hoodworms. Destroy and remove
them with White's Cream Vermifuge.

The Speer Wine Company,

have their vineyards stocked of the
same grape, the only vineyard of
the kind in this country, the vines
were imported and planted here
over forty years ago. The Speer
Port wine and Burgundy are now
regarded the finest in the world,
their rich, full body and high
character is unexcelled. In-
valids weakly persons, especially
fnale and the ared are made
strong and vigorous by its use, as
a medicinal wme n nas no equai;
as a family wine it has no super-
tor. First class physicians all over
the conntry,here and in Europe,
who have tried them recommend
them as the best.
A close study by physicians on
the effect of different brands of
wines on the system convinces
them of the superiority of the Speer
Passaic wines for their patients.
