THURSDAY, DEC. U, lSi'3. A TRAITOR OS TliE WAR SHir. One of the Most;imporUnt lMrts trthe Machinery Injured-lne tessei Forced to Lie I'p at the ISarbadocs. New Yoke, December 7. The Herald haa the following: The Brazilian cruiser, America, which sailed from New York for Rio on the night of November 26th, for the purpose of fighting the rebel ad miral Mello'B warship, is lying at Bridgetown, Barbadoes, so seriously disabled by the act of an unknown traitor among her crew that she will probably be unable to continue her voyage for several weeks. A cable message waa received by Flint & Co. from the West Indies an nouncing that one of the vessel's valves, among one of the most vul nerable points of a ship's machinery, had been purposely broken by some unknown member of the crew and that the vessel had thereby been 60 seriously injured that a long delay must occur before she could continue her voyage. In view of the latter fact it was announced in the cable gram that the cruiser Nictheroy, which left St. Thoma3 for Rio Jan erio last Sunday night, had con tinued the voyage alone. The traitor, it is said, did his work last Monday. The indications are said to point most strongly to the traitor being in the engineer's division, as a person who does not understand machinery would not know which particular part to attack to produce the results obtained in this instance. The Herald's special dispatch from Montevideo says : A correspondent in Rio Janerio sends word that the rebel warships Aquidaban and Republica are both anchored at Ilha Grande, the quar antine station not far from Rio Janerio. The former, which is Mello's flagship, is undergoing re pairs for injuries suffered while run ning the gauntlet ot the loyal torts at the entrance of Rio harbor the other day.

P. Blaize, an extensive real estate dealer in Des Moines, Iowa, narrowly escaped one of the severest attacks of pneumonia while in the northern part of that state during a recent blizzard, says the Saturday Review. Mr. Blaize had occasion to drive several miles dur ing the storm and was eo thorough ly chilled that he was unable to get warm, and inside of an hour after hia return he was threatened with a severe case of pneumonia or lung lever. Mr. Blaize sent to the near est drug store and got a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, of which he had often heard, and took a number ot large doses, lie says the effect was wonderful and in a short time he was breathing quite easily, lie kept on taking the medi cine and the next day was able to come to Des Moines. Mr. Blaize regards his cure as simply wonder ful. For sale by C. A. Buckner, lmiggist. Kansas Farmers' Alliance. Topeka, Kan., Dec. 8. It was 2 o'clock this morning when the State Farmers' alliance adjourned its an nual meeting. The resolutions were not adopted till the last moment The resolutions were lengthy but unimportant. They reaffirmed the St. Louis platform, indorsed Gov ernor Lewelling's "rock pile" circular, the north and south rail road scheme and equal suffrage, and favored the establishment of a State literary bureau for the education of the people. The vote on all the propositions was unanimous except equal suffrage, to which there was strong opposition. The proposition carried by only six majority.

Prender- gast, the assassin, made a formal protest against the plea of insanity being introduced in his case to-day. When he was led into Judge Brentano's court room he handed his attorney, Mr. Essex, a letter in which he asked that the insanity plea be withdrawn, declaring that he believed people will get an idea that he did not kill Carter Harrison for the benefit of the people at large, but rather from a personal or selfish motive. Attorney Essex declined to state whether he would give the letter any consideration. When on a visit to Iowa, Mr. K.

The 'Farmers Institute" bas been in session here for a couple of weeks Although the attendance has been light each day, yet the speakers re ceived marked attention.

Forty-Two Xereatxta of Mexico Or ganlze as Association to Protec Thir Basicss. The merchants oi Mexico met last Wednesday evening to organ ize an auxiliary board of the Mer chants' A Traders- Association of St. Louis, Mo. An executive com mittee of seven is to b appointed by the president at the next reg ular meeting. Forty-two firms signed tbe constitution and by-laws, pledg mg themselves to abide by the same for one yar. A fine ii the penalty fixed for violating the claus in the constitution which provides that no member of this auxiliary board shall give credit to any per son who does not by some honorable means adjust his indebtedness to all other subscribers. This organ ization is not to fix prices but to protect the honest buyer as well as the merchant. It ia carefully pro vided that no person shall be re ported to tne members ot this or any other auxiliary board of the Merchant' & Traders' Association as owing a subscriber until such per son shall be given a full and lair opportunity to adjust his obliga tions. This association is an in corporate! institution, duly author ized to io business throughout the United States. The system, wher ever it has been introduced, has been found to be full of benefit everybody except the man who has maae up nis mina to live on other people. It assists the business man by enabling himto select the hon8t, payinj customer and reject the purchaser who buy; without means or intention pay ; it entbles the honest buyer to buy cheap as tbe merchants are not obliged to Increase profits to balance bad debts ; it enables business men to avoid loaes and long delays in collecting, to pay their own bills promptly and thereby purchase on better terms and stand in bette credit. It enables a credit system to exist to the benefit of all hone persons and eliminates the probabi ity of loss ; it prevents bankruptcies in trade ; in fact, it stops the great commercial leak that is the cause of 90 per cent of the failures and it absolutely reduces the transactions of men to the principles of everlasting; right. Thousands of merchants will be saved from ruin and th.e people from paying a high ta ior ouying goods on credit. Th eystem of organization is being perfected not only throughout the county and state, but the entire United States. Attention.
