WHAT IS THE GRIP?
It Is Certainly a Most Mysterionß Disease, hut Its Heal Cause la Clearly Explained. Investigation has shown Uiat nearly every family in the city has had at least one of its members attacked by the grip, but it seems to be coming in a different form this year than ever heretofore. Men and women complain more of nausea, pains in the arms, limbs and about the back and a gen eral lack of appetite and ambition. Now, all this proves clearly just where the cause of the grip is located. Have you ever seen a sewer or drain clogged up after a heavy rain? lt is precisely this way with the grip. The kid. h.vs gtt clogged up, and the poi soiieeus nciils which should pass from the- system arc thrown hack until final ly they get into the blood and so poison the whole lieuly. Read what the eminent Dr. Hamil ton has to say upon this subject: "It is clear," says he, "that in order to drive grip and similar poisons from tin- system it is only necessary to open up tlie sewers; in other words, to put the kidneys in perfect working order so that they will carry these poisons away instead eel' allowing them to clog up and ruin the blood, and, unfortu nately, this is not altogether an easy thing tel del. "There is, so far as the medical pro fessieui and science know, but one dis covery that will quickly and effectual ly open up tlie kidneys and at the same time soothe them. That discovery, which has cured so many thousands of men and women; which is keeping so many in perfect health today and which is used so universally tlie world over ts Warner's Safe Cure. It ls rec ommended and used by the highest medigal authorities both abroad and. In America. It can be taken by the nieesj aged person and the tiniest child ' with beneficial effect, for it ls perfect- I ly pur.c and harmless. Prof. Beyer, of i i.enojtny: Dr. William Edward Rob s«m. nf England, and Dr. Gunn, of New York, are all prominent men who speak in the highest terms of this great remedy. If you have any symptoms j of the grip, let me advise you to act I prom"g»ly. for you will find that Safe ; CufQt will relieve you quickly, take you from a condition of misery and put you on the road to health." OHDER for projectiles THE CONTRACT DIVIDED BY THE IV IK DEPARTMENT Three Sleel Companies Awarded Contracts for Armor and Deck PicrcliiH' Shells Im] It»M>r»_«il I ■ation itill Taken lp hy the House Committee auti Discussed, hut With \«> Final Action us a Hesult. WASHINGTON, March 18.— The ord nance bureau of the war department today awarded contracts for a large ! number of steel armor-piercing and deck-piercing projectiles for the coast fortification guns. There were several | bidders, but instead of giving the con- j tract to one concern the bureau divided the contract so that supplies will be coining from several quarters at the samf time. The award is as follows: CarpePflter Steel Company — ISO eight-inch armor-piercing shot, 300 ten-inch armor pierclng shot. 150 ten-inch armor-piercing .hells, 250 twelve-inch deck-piercing shells i ; SOO oounds each. 228 twelve-Inch deck piercing shells of 1.000 pounds each.

Midvalc Steel Company — l>Bo twelve-inch deck-picreing shells of SOO pounds each. 344 twelve-inch deck-piercing shells of 1,000 pounds each. The army reorganization bill was taken up at the meeting of the house ceemmittee on military affairs today, and some of its provisions were dis cussed. The law relating to the various Reins, and the changes brought about from the present plan were considered in detail, but there was no action on the measure owing to the necessity for a full discussion of each provision. It was reiterated at today's meeting that while it made sweeping changes on a war footing, the only difference it contemplated on a peace footing is an increase of twenty-five majors. A special meeting of the committee has been called for tomorrow to con tinue consideration of the bill. Steps have been taken by the en gineer's oflice for the expenditure of the $5,000,000 alloted for the continua tion of the improvement of various works of fortification. Practically all of it will be devoted to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. While the expenditure will be under the general supervision of the engin eer's offlce at Washington, the details connected therewith, including the let ting of contracts, etc., will be left to the disposition of the local engineer's office. castohia. ti-aiie /HV s/tT/> si "" _____ Early Nn . i_.nl lou.

Chicago, CHESS MATCH BY CABLE THIRD ANNUAL CONTEST FOR NEWNES CHALLENGE CUP Ah the (ianim Stand the Rn<_llHh men Have the AdvantaKC and Should Hold the Trophy for An other Year— — IMllobury Has the Bet of the Contest and Shownltcr Stand., to Win a t.ame. NEW YORK, March 18.— The third international cable chess match be tween teams representing the United States and Great Britain for the New nes challenge cup began today. The American players were in the Academy of Music, Brooklyn, and the English men played in the Hotel Cecil, London. The United States representatives wein the prize the first time it was played fur, and the British won it last year. It will be seen from the appended details of the play that the Britishers are in the lead: Pillsbury, the American champion, opened with a queen's gambit, against the English champion, Blackburn.* When the game was adjourned. Pills bury had a strong position, but it seems rather doubtful whether this advan tage will be sufficient to win the game tomorrow. Showalter declined to take a gambit pawn offered by Burn, and an interest ing light ensued. As the game stands at the adjournment, it ls Odds on the Kentuckian winning. Barry, against Caro. gained an ad vantage which may probably win ihe game for him. Hyn_.es was matched against Atkins. It looked at the adjournment as if Hymes would escape by a draw. Hodges, against Bellingham, won a pawn, and Hodges should certainly win the game tomorrow. Delmar selected a very Indifferent variation of the French defense against Mills. The Englishman should win. The game between Balrd and Locock should end in a draw tomorrow. On the eighth board Jackson out played Young. The Englishman, bar ring accidents, will win tomorrow. Robinson may be able to draw his game against Jacobs. The chances of the Britisher, however, are much rosier. Galbraith did not succeed much against the Englishman. Trenchard, who, ln all probability, will win. LONDON, March 18. — There were about 300 persons present today when the cable chess match was opened. The exchange of greetings over the cable elicited loud and prolonged cheers. "YAM." KENNEVS, FIT. HE. Martin Julian Saj» It In a Br.sr_.e_ One Sparine With Elt*. PHILADELPHIA, March IS.— Bob Fitzsim mons, who is playing a week's engagement in this city, is boxing every day wi;h "Yank" Kenney, the giant whom Pet^r Maher knock ed out in half a round. Bob declares that he will make a fighter of Kenney. Martin Julian, Fits' manager, expresses the same belief. "Kenney is doing ] first-class," said Julian, "and I don't see why he shouldn't come out all right. 'Yank' started out wrong. He had done no boxing, and yet started right in against first-class men. Why, he didn't know how to make a lead when he joined our troupe at Cleveland, | end yet he had taken part in two big fights and been knocked out in each. "After the first performance Bob gave 'Yank' a practice lesson in the art of boxing, more particularly in leading, and the big fellow has improved wonderfully. Of course, there is lots of room for improvement, but I don't see why he should not come out all right in the end. "He is young, big and strong, and can learn to be clever if he will only stick to it. This boxing with Fitzsimmonß every day is a rare chance for him to learn." Kenney's looks are his fortune ln this case. He resembles Jim Corbett, and that is probably why Julian picked him out as a sparring partner for Fitzsimmons. Speaking cf Fitz' future plans, Julian said: "We are not looking for fight just now, but before many moons roll around we will mike an announcement that will make these wculd-be champions crawl into their holes. Fitzsimmons was never in better health than he is now, and any one who thinks he ia getting too old to fight will get fooled." ABE XOW PROFESSIONALS. 1.. A. W. Has Minnesota Wheelmen on the Licit.

Wi il No Time After Being Di vorced From His First Wife. Cleveland, 0., March 18.— It ls learned that "Kid" McCoy, who came to Cleveland to referee the Lavigne-Daly fight, last night, was secretly married ln St. Louis, on March 6— the day following the granting of the de cree of divorce to the pugilist's first wife. Details of the wedding, at present obtainable are extremely meagre. It Is known only that the bride is a New York girl, and that some very sensational circumstances sur round the affair. When asked by a reported about his mar riage McCoy became extremely angry, and said: "That's none of your business. It's a mat ter that concerns myself only." "Doc" Payne, the "Kid's" trainer was seen later and asked about the marriage. At first he utterly refused to be Interviewed but after reflecting that the cat had already escaped, he said: "Yes, it is true that the 'Kid' was mar ried at St. Louis, March 6. The bride Is a New Yorker. There are reasons why I can not divulge her name. There ls no denying that the 'Kid' ls sore on the subject There was some trouble about his first wife, and the divorce mixed up in the matter. You know he was married the day after the de cree was granted his wife. Further than this I cannot talk, on account of hl3 sensitive ness. In fact. If you but knew ail the details, I am sure you wouldn't ask me any thing about it. and I know you wouldn't have the heart to Question the 'Kid.' " COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES. Harvard and Pennsylvania Will Meet Nov. 5. NEW YORK, March 18.— Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania have definitely decided to play their annual football game this year on Nov. 5, which will create some surprise in the college world, as lt ls an unexpected departure from the usual cus tom of playing on the Saturday before Thanksgiving day. As Yale and Princeton have arranged to play on Nov. 12 and Harvard and Yale on Nov. 19, lt looks as though Princeton and Harvard will not play after all. That will leave only one big game of Importance for Princeton, unless negotiations* for a battle with the University of Pennsylvania are opened between now and next fall. With Harvard and Yale both playing two hard games, there is no reason why Princeton and Old Perm should not do the same. A THE ST. PAUI, GLOBE SATURDAY MARCH 19, 1898. meeting between the latter rivals either at New York or at Philadelphia would draw a large crowd. There appears to be no rea son why such a game cannot be arranged, unless the Princeton faculty athletic com mittee still adheres to the edict Issued ln 1594, immediately the memorial gam* at Trenton.

NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 18.— The New Haven Athletic club has ofTered a purse of $5,000 for a twenty- round contest between Kid McCoy and Gus Ruhlln, to take place at New Haven May 30.

The articles stipu late that the men shall meet at catch weights for 50 per cent of the gate receipts, which the club guarantees will not be less than $2,000. Bonner wanted to have the weight at 15S pounds, but McCoy would not hear of such a thing, probably because he knows that he cannot get to that figure without trouble. BRUSH'S BLACKLIST BILE. Freedman Sl_.iih 11, and It Will Now He Enforced. NEW YORK, March 18.— Now that Presi dent Freedman, of the New York Base Ball club, has affixed his signature to the black list measure and forwarded it to President Young, every club owner has agreed to a strict and unequivocal enforcement of the rule to prohibit rowdyism. "I have been heartily in favor of the suppression of rowdy, kicking methods right along." Freedman said. "The new rule will not affect our team, because it aJways wins games on its merits. And now that a rule has been passed which does away with the bulldozing of umpires, we shall be able tb win more games away from home." VICIOUS TWE\TY-ROl IMD GO.

Spain Said to Be Preparing to Bom hard ihe Cities of the Great LakeM. MILWAUKEE, Wis., March 18.— Capit. A. B. Davis, of the revenue cut ter Gresham, has received reports from many sources to the effect that in case of war with Spain, Chicago, Milwaukee and other cities on the g-reat lakes may be bombarded with Spanish shells. In an Interview tonight concerning these reports, Cap*. Davis said that, while he had received the reports in all seriousness from men whom he knew well, he looked upon them as being ridiculous. "It may be wise to call the attention of the navy department to such re ports." said Capt. Davis. "It is possi ble that Spain could have secured some boats and that she is ln a position to arm them secretly and with dispatch. It would be directly in violation of our treaty with Great Britain, and we could depend upon the Canadian gov ernment to intervene. "The straits could be fortified, and a Spanish man-of-war would have a checkered and short career on the lakes. In case such should happen, the Gresham would be kept on the lakes. The Algonquin and the Onondaga, cut ters being fitted out at Cleveland, would be ready at the opening of nav igation for service. There's nclthing but a lot of old tubs that Spain could get hold of anyway." SPAIN WILL NEVER PAY. "War the 11 exult If the United States DemiiuilM Indemnity for the Maine. "VIENNA, March 18. — The Neve Freie Presse publishes an interview with a Spanish statesman, evidently the Mar quis de Hoyos, the Spanish ambassa dor, who is represented as saying: "Spain would rather have war with the United States than pay compensa tion for the Maine, for by the latter course she would forfeit her honor through an atTmission of guilt, which would erase her name from the list of civilized nations. "It could not be England's interest to see the Spaniards expelled from Cu ba, as there might arise at Washing ton an inclination to declare Canada's independence. If during a war the United States should incite the Philip pines to revolt, Spain could revenge herself by raising revolts in the Ameri can Southern states."

WASHINGTON, March 18.— Beyond the Amazonas, her sister ship and the Mayflower, no purchases have been made by the navy department. A num ber of fleet steam yachts, owned In the United States, are being offered to the department, and it is provable that some of these will be purchased. Secretary Long takes the view that, failing to secure the torpedo boat de stroyers he wants, the best plan is for him to equip some of these speedy boats with torpedo tubes and light bat teries and Improvise torpedo boats. The navy department ls convinced that the Spanish government has not acquired possession of the "Varese, the Italian armored cruiser. It would not, however, be a matter of deep concern if the report were true. The gunboat Newport reported her arrival by cable to the navy depart ment today from Greytown. She will be attached to the North Atlantic squadron. Some idea of the activity prevailing in navy circles is given by the statement that the pay roll of the construction department, only one of several departments, In the Mare Isl and navy yard for March was $80,000. This great expenditure pen- month, it is said, was not equaled during the late war. The Marblehead is at Tampa. The little Bancroft, on her way across the ocean, reported by cable her arrival today at Horta, Fayal. She appears to be making about as good time as her larger consort, the Helena. The Samoset arrived at' Key West to day, as did the Montgomery, while the Detroit sailed from that port for Tor tugas. The Machias has arrived at Boston, where she will have slight repairs made. NEW YORK, March 18.— The auxil iary cruiser board spent the early part of today preparing reports to be sent to Washington on second-class vessels inspected yesterday afternoon. The plans of the board have been somewhat changed by orders received from Washington today. One of t>he or ders is said 'to be a direction to inspect all obtainable vessels in the harbor for first-class cruisers. After the morning session the board inspected the Ward line steamers Orizaba, Saratoga and Seneca. A change has been made at the Brooklyn navy yard in the plans for preparing the Chicago for sea. Several mounts for five-inch guns had been hoisted aboard during the week, but have now been put back on the dock. It ls said that the mounts are being held for possible use on the auxiliary cruisers. ECHO OF REVOLUTION. German People Will Make a Clean Sweep Some Day, Herr Bebel'H Prediction. BERLIN, March 18.— In. the reichstag today, during the debate on the bill providing for the reform of courts mar tial, Herr Bebel, the Socialist leader, started a discussion on the subject of the anniversary of the revolution. Al luding to the privileges enjoyed by military officers, he reminded his hear ers of "the revolution of March IS, 184S, when the people fought for their Jib- , erty and rights." The minister for war, Gen. yon Goss ler, and Herr Munckel, People's party, followed, while the president of the house, Baron yon Buel-Borenberg, in tervened and declared he did not wish to deny the significance of the day; but, at the request of the subsequent speakers, he could not allow it to be come the chief point of discussion. Baron yon Stumm declared the Prus sian constitution was the free gift of the king. Herr Bebel, amid an uproar, said | « Latest Plan of Compromise. WASHINGTON, March 18.— The latest plan is to divide Cuba. Senator Proctor suggests that Cubans take all they have won, Spain all she holds. The Cubans have possession of Puerto Principe and Santiago de Cuba. Thesei constitute half of the island, and have been named Cuba Libre by the conquering insurgents. The Spanish control the provinces of Pinar del Rio, .BJavana, Matanzas and Saneta Clara. It may be that Spain can be coerced by diplomatic means into giving up Puerto Principe and Santiago de Cuba, retaining the most fertile part of her dependency. When peace Is res-tored, as the United States will insist that lt must be, the Cubans'"wlll possess all they have won, and Spain all she has suc cessfully defended. Senator Proctor, ln the committee rooms, has been strenuously advocat ing the scheme, pf partitioning Cuba, and already It is finding some sup port. '• 7 Whether It will be pleasing to the insurgents is doubtful. They want the entire island, but 'under certain circumstances a compromise might be effected. the combatants of 1848 were described as "rabble." This, he asserted, was in famous. Herr Bebel added: "If the promises made had been fulfilled, no Bismarck Avould have been required. But the king was betrayed — " The president of the reichstag here intervened and called the speaker to order. Resuming his remarks, Herr Bebel said: "The men of the old National union are now silent. The king of Prussia, 'by the grace of God,' made a clean sweep In 1860. The people will also have the right to make a clean sweep some day." POSTAL BILL DEBATED.

Passing the Amazonas, after saluting Tilbury fort, the band played "The Star Spangled Banner" with the crew standing "attention." Capt. Leary. off Deal, received dis patches and thought at first that there might have been a declaration of war. Commodore Howell, who was receiv ed by Lieut. Commander Colwell, the moment the San Francisco reached her moorings ordered six hundred tons of coal for the San Francisco, and 300 tons for the Amazonas, which is coal ing, and Is expected to complete that work on Monday, when she will go to Holy Haven, to take on board her am munition. The Amazonas was formally trans ferred from the Brazilian flag to the Stars and Stripes shortly after 11 o'clock this morning. Lieut. Commander Colwell, United States naval attache, accompanied by Ensign Roberts, Assistant Engineer Morris and Consul General Osborne, arrived on board shortly before 11 a. m. They were received at the gangway by Lieut. Santer, and were escorted to the captain's cabin, where they were received by Commander Corres. In reply to Lieut. Commander Col well's inquiry, Commander Corres said he was ready to transfer the vessel forthwith, and Messrs. Colwell, Roberts and Morris donned their uniforms and proceeded on deck. In the center of a circle of officers of both nations, Lieut. Commander Colwell faced the Brazilian flag flying from the cruiser's stern, and as the officers bared their heads the flag of Brazil was hauled down at 11:10, after which, facing about with their heads still uncovered, Old Glory was run up the main. ' POSSIBLE COAST DISASTER. News of a Wreck and Probable Loss of Life BroiiKht in by In dians. CRESCENT CITY, Cal., March 18.— Two Indians bearing evidence of hav ing suffered extreme hardship arrived in this port this evening in a frail I canoe. They had been afloat for two days and nights without food, and ex posed to the buffeting of wind and wave in the coldest storm of the sea son. The Indians belong to a British Co lumbia tribe, and the following account of their misfortune was told through an interpreter. The schooner Teresa left Nootkai-Sunday, near Vancouver, B. C, about six weeks ago on a sealing expedition with a crew and sealing force of twenty-five men. Last Mon day when off the Oregon coast, a few miles north of the mouth of the Rogue river, the vessel cast anchor and ten small boats, each manned by two or three men, started out ln quest of seals. A sudden and violent storm coming up, the boat manned by these two In dians was not able to reach the schooner, and lt was only by superior skill that they were able to keep their boat afloat. They drifted down the coast and effected a landing at Cres cent City. The Indians believe that a number if not all of those on board the small boats have either foundered or been dashed to pieces on the rocks of the coast. They also believe that the Teresa has been wrecked, as the most of the crew were ln the small boats when the storm struck them. WHALEBACKS FOR FIGHTERS.

Product Advertising: Car of the V P. Not Likely to Be Laid Away. Land Commissioner William H. Phipps, of the Northern Pacific road, is authority for the statement that his road has not determined to take its product advertising car off the line. "It is possible, of course," said Mr. Phipps to a Globe reporter yesteiday, "that we may adopt some other plans of advertising our road and the lands adjacent thereto, but we have not thought of laying aside the car in auestion. "It was necessary to lay lt off for the time being, as after fifteen months of almost con tinuous travel the products exhibited have be come slightly delapidated and will have to be replaced. As this cannot be done until next fall, the car will remain out of service until that time at least." Asked as to the value of the car as an ad vertising medium, Mr. Phipps said he consid ered it a very good oue. "It has been out for fifteen months," said Mr. Phipps, "and during that time 1,800,000 adults and children have passed through it. In addition there has been distributed from It 1.100.000 pamphlets of advertising matter. The car has been on "xhibition in the states of lowa. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois. Ohio, Indiana, New York, Michigan and Pennsyl vania." Mr. Phipps was not aware that the Milwau kee road had made any effort to secure the car for exhibition purposes at tlie Omaha ex position. SELLING "SPLIT") TICKETS. Rnilrond Men 'I'll ink They Have a Traitor in Their Midst. It was reported yesterday ln railroad cir cles that one of the Chicago-St. Paul lines was disposing of blocks of tickets to a St. Paul broker, and the passenger agents of the other roads were therefore very much aroused. The St. Paul-Chicago lines some time ago agreed to stand together during the present rate war and the sale of the "split" tickets to scalpers is therefore a violation of that agreement. Under the "split" ticket plan tickets to Eastern cities are sold in two parts, one read ing to Chicago and the other to the point of destination in the East. The scalper in con junction with the St. Paul agent, could reap a harvest by forwarding the Eastern portion of the ticket to Chicago, where it could be sold below the prevailing rate from Chicago East. The road making the sale to the scalper would probably secure the return of the St. Paul-Chicago portion of the ticket, refunding therefor a portion of the original purchase price. WANTS TO ENTER ST.
