Speeial Correspondence of Tub Times. Washington, D. C, April 10,-The principal topic of political conversa tion in the national capital at the present time is the way that Presi dent Roosevelt does things when bis desires are thwarted by the Senate. He was stuck on having that Santo Domlcgo treaty fixed up before the Senate adjourned its extra eeseion, but the Senate refused to do so, be cause the Democrats stood together for once in the great flood of years and balked the scheme to make Uncle Sam the collecting agent for the debts of all the countries and grafters on the face of the globe. But, as ths two polecats said to one another as the automobile passed them and they got a whiff ot that breese that follows thebeniine buggy, "What's tho use?" Nowadays whan tho Congress of the nation does not do all ths President wants be Just goes ahead and does things to snlt himself. They would not give him the Panama Canal routs, so hs weit to work and got up arevolntion down there, stole apiece ot tho territory of the Republic of Colombia and fixed up a government with which be Vsould enter into a treaty. Now, when the Senate reluees to give him a treaty with Santo Domin go, so be can collect the debts of a lot of his political friends, be waits until the Senate adjourns and tued fixes the thing his own way and will send down his own collectors. If the people do not like it what are they goiDgto do -about it? As the late lamented Tim Campbell, of New York, once said to a member of Con gress who refused to vote for a meas ure, because it was unconstitutional. "What's the Constitution between friends?" General Chase, Asat Ad. Genl 0. A. R, Writes: "The excellence of Peruna as a cure or relief for catarrhal disturb anoea ia well established. Many of my frlenda have been benefited by lta use." B. 7.

It has been of the greatest benefit and service to many ot my friends." Dennis O'Connor, 738 82nd St., N. W., Wash ington, D. C. Gen. Wright of the Confederate Army, Writes: "I take pleasure in recom mending Peruna. It ia a remarkable medicine and should be used by persons who are in need of a good tonio and by sufferers from catarrh."-MarcusWrlRht, 1724 Corcoran St., Washington, D. 0. Gen. Hawley of Washington, D. &, Writes: "I have used Feruna and find It very beneficial for kidney trouble and especially good for coughs, colds and catarrhal troubles." A. P. Hawley. Brl& Gen. Cook, of Washington, D. C, Writes: "As a number of my friends and acquaintances have uxed Peruna as a catarrh cure with good results, and as Such things as constitutions are obsolete so far as our strenuous President is concerned He simply kicks it out of the way and goes atlead. Sueh things In this country J are growing more frequent and will continue to do so, because ot the ut ter Indifference of the people. Some day the republican oligarchy will pull the whole darignmmed fabric of their liberties from under their feet, and then maybe they will sit up and be gin to take notice when it is too late. The question of railroad rate legis lation is one of the biggest that has confronted the people of the country for many years, and too much can not be said about it. Before it is settled the people ought to be thor oughly familiar with every phaee of it, and there are always two sides to every question. Every good Demo crat Is in favor of eome sort ot legis lation that will safeguard the inter ests of the people and prevent extor tion on the part of the railroad, without impoverishing the roads. I was in favor of tbo Hearst bill, which did this thing, bat I am not in favor of ths Eech-fownsend bill or any thing like it that gives to the Inter state Commerce Commission arbi trary powers without providing for men on the commission who have sense enough to know what rates are. Simply to ascertain how many peo pie in this country are directly inter ested in this rate question that more or less will effect the condition ot the roads, I went to tho Interstate Com merce Commission and gathered some interesting figures. Insurance companies hold ot rail, road investments, 1845,889,038; savings banks, u28,5')5,167, and edui-atioual institutions, $47,408, 327. There are 5.200,952 savings bank wammimmm mwwwwrMiMiiPfiitiM Ti . - - - w - -......; .... I am now using it beneficially, I can aafely recommend lta uce to persons suffering from this disorder." Geo. W. Cook. Gen. Mlddleton of Washington, D. &, Writes: "Your preparation of Peruna aa a cure for catarrh aa well aa a tonic deserves the gratitude of thono afflicted with that disease aa well as phyical prostration. I have been much bene fited lnevery ret pec t in various ways, and 1 feel it a duty to recommend its usefulness to my fellow citizens." John Mlddleton. General Sypher of Washington, D. &, Writes: "After suffering for years with neuralgia, I was persuaded by a friend to use your remedy, Peruna, and after giving it a fair and thorough trial, I can now cheorfully recommend Peruna to any one who Is suffering with neuralgia. It is alo an excellent tonic." J. II. Syphur. Brig. Cen. Gibson of Washington, D C, Writes: "Peruua is not only a remedy for colds and catarrh, but also an ad mirable tonic and should be in every household. I commend its possessivn and ueo to all persons. Am using It myself with good results." A. O. Gibson. depositors and 18,147,000 insurance policyholders, a total of 23,447,000 people interested in the prosperity of the railroads of the United States. Thirty per cent of the holdings of these institutions are In railroad se curities, which is one-sixth in valueof all the railroad securities of this country. There are 327,000 individ ual railroad stockholders in this country and 1,345,000 men at work on the railroads, and at least 0,500, 000 people dependent (or their income upon the railroads. I also ascertain ed there that the rate of transporta tion has been increased less than 5 per cent, taken as a whole, in the past four years, and that railroad rates have dropped 40 per cent since the creation of the Commission. These figures are interesting because they are facts taken from the stat istics, and everybody is interested in knowing the truth. A little incident occurred here In this city this week that shows the value of newspaper advertising, and I mention it only for that purpose. Everybody either has seen or heard of Lew Dockstader, the best negro minstrel in tho country. Well, Lew has his show hero this week and on last Friday he Inserted a little want "ad" in one of the local papers to the effect that school girls and boys who can write distinctly were invited to call at the box office ot the Rational Theatre on Saturday morning. They lined up lor blocks and were handed a little slip of paper which read that it was to encourage rapid and dis tihet penmanship and offered a pri vate box to the boy or girl who would write distinctly "Lew Dock stader is my comedian" the greatest number of times and gave them until Monday afternoon to return the manuscript. Well, he got two bush Gen. Henderson of Washington, D. C, Writes: "Peruna haa been used in my family with the very best results, and I take pleasure in recommending your valuable remedy to my friends as a fine tonio and effective cure for catarrh." MaJ. Gen. Armstrong of Washing ton, D. C., Writes! "Aa many of my old comradee and friends have been greatly benefited by the use ot Peruna tor catarrhal troubles, I heartily join in their en dorsement of its curative qualities." F. C. Armstrong. General Pettys of the U. V. V., Writes: "It affords me pleasure to say that some of my patients who have usixl Peruna as a tonic and also for catarrhal troubles, have been greatly benefited by the aame. I am satisfied of tho cx cellence ot the same," Charles Pettya. General Legs of Washington, D. C, Writes: "1 take pleasure In endorsing the many recommendations I have heard and read ot Peruna, because of having had knowledge ot the truth of so many of them. "We always tell our sick and ailing frlenda of the remedies that we have learned, from experience", were good for us wlienuiliiiK in the same way, and we do it as a duty we feel that we owe them. "Why la It any the less our duty to advise all the people we can when wo know of a good and con paratlvely in expensive remedy tha' makes many cures, and benefits in a most all case? "My own little personal experience of being relieved ot deafness, caused by aaiegeof catarrh, warrants me in ad vising all the afflicted to Just try Peruna." A. M. Legg. Col. Shatswell of Washington, D C Writes: "I commend Peruna as a moat agreeable as well as effective medicine. Catarrh and catarrhal colds are checked and generally cured by a Judicious uqo of it. It is a good promoter of digestion and is an excellent remedy for a weak stomach. It tones up the appetite and Is not at all disagreeable to take." Nathaniel Shatswell. Captain Jackson of Washington, D. C Writes : " I am eighty-three years old, a veteran of the Black Hawk, Mexican and Civil Wars. Some years ago I was seriously affected with catarrh ot the stomach. After the use of three bottlca of Peruna every uppearanco of my complaint was removed." If you do not derive prompt and satis factory results from tho use of Peruna, write at once Dr. Hartman, giving a full statement of your case and he will be pleased to give you his valuable ad vice gratis.

It came near breaking up the public schools, as the teachers could gut nothing out of the pupils, who want ed to write all day Monday. The teachers are swearing vengeance on Lew Dopkntader, but Lew just laughs and says he has proved the value of printers' ink as well as burnt cork. Charles A Eiiwakhh.
