Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a prepara

cure for these troubles to the fact that

for any other disease.
It is not a cure-all, but for any stom

cure. It is prepared In tablet form,
pleasant to taste, composed of vegetable
and fruit essences, pure pepsin and Gold

by resting and invigorating the weak
stomach; rest is nature's cure for any
disease, but you cannot rest the stom

that will do its work or assist in the di

That is exactly what Stuart's Dyspep

WASHINGTON, .Tune 16.— The ante
rooms of the Wh?te house fairly swarmerl j
today with politicians who had stopped
off in Washington on their way to the
Republican national convention. Al
though among them were not a few of
the party leaders, the visitors had little
opportunity to sco the president private

most topic in the minds of all—got no
intimation from Mr. McKJnley as to his
personal choice, if he has one.

DELEGATES ON THE WAY.
Minnowotantt for Philadelphia to
Irfave Chicago Today.
CHICAGO, June 16.—This city was to
day the center of the Western rush for
the Philadelphia convention. Three
large organizations identified with the
Republican party in Cook county started
for the Quaker City today, to say noth
ing of a flood of delegates and politicians
from the Western states who, all a-flut
ter with flags and badges, paused long
enough to transfer themselves to rail
roads running East.
The Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska
and upper Michigan delegates, with their
friends, will leave here tomorrow over
the Baltimore & Ohio. Nearly all expect
to reach Philadelphia Monday.
Among the men who left Chicago to
day for the convention was George B.
Schneider, who attended the first Repub
lican convention in 1856. He attends the
convention under an invitation from Sen
ator Hanna, who sent similar invitations
to the other delegates to that political
gathering.

PHILADELPHIA, June 36.—Senator
Wolcott, of Colorado, arrived today, and
immediately announced himself as fa
vorable to the candidacy of Irving Scott,
of California, for the vice presidency.
"Scott's candidacy would appeal to
every Western man," he said. "He is a
man of great forct of character and I
believe h's nomination would add
strength to the ticket."

Alabama. Senator Discusses tho
Democratic Platform.
KKOXVILLE, Term., June 16:— In a let
ter to G. F. Milton, editor of the Senti
nel, and delegate to the Kansas City con
vention, Senator John T. Morgan, of Ala
bama, thus exoresses his views concern
ing the platform to be adopted at Kansas
City:
"The hordes arc named and entered for
th( j race, and the riders weighed and in the
saddle, so both parties are trying to lind |
tlit- smoothest ground to run over, and
neither can do anything else. Our smooth- !
est path i.s that we have beaten om wiih j
the tramp of Democracy since Jefferson '
blazed the way and Jackson opened it. I
The Chicago platform is a true exposition ]
of the creed, though it has a few mar- |
ginal notes that are rather too socialistic; j
Bryan has added some that we can afford i
to ignore; others will be attempted in I
the Populist direction; New York will at- j
tempt to rewrite it and put Bryan's pic- ■
ture over it as an index to its meaning. ;
The safe course is to stand by it. The j
people will understand us if we do that, j
A new alignment will lose us more than
we gain.

TOWN AND COUNTRY LINKS
WEIIE TIIE SCENE OF SOME FIVE
GO'.K YESTERDAY.
Yesterday was another busy day among
the golfers, and, although the events on
the local links were not of any particular
importance, the general average of the
playing was of a high order. On tiie
Town and Country course the mixed four
some competition wa.s won by U. F.
Schurnieitr and C. W. Gardner, who
turned in a score of 91 for the round. The
team match at Bryn Mawr, Minneapolis,
was declared off, as the number of play
ers who entered was not sufficient lo
make the match an interes.ing one.
The weather was ideal for golf, as
there was enough wind moving to make
playing a pleasure and not enough to
interfere with the game.
Fourteen couples entered in the men's
foursome competition on the Town and
Country links. The greens were in ex
cellent .condition, and the playing, while
not exceptional, was good. As usual, the
champion of the club. B. F. Schurmeier,
was in the winning pair, while W. P.
Trowbridge and W. L. Mitchell were the
runners up. The course has recently been
piped, and it v.as a trifle slow to the
players in conseauence. The result is as
follows:
B. F. Schurmeier and C. W. Gardner,

Miss A. Pope and Miss E. Pone tied for
the first place in the women's contest,
each of them makinar the round in 63. The
play was golf No. 5 over three roun.-ls of
six'holes each. The following are the re

B. F. Schurmeier sad E. G. Ha'.bert. Th°
finals will be• 'decided during the coming

the results wer«i. as follows: Hal

Bend by 1 up.
In the second round Hal'bert defeated T.
L. Schurmeier by 3 up; Sabin was 4 up
over Gardner; Langford won by 7 up
from Finch, and B. F. Schurmeier won

DIAMOND CLUB.
A Cnrions Organization in London
Where Gems i liauge Hands.
London Express.
This is an age for clubs. Each profes
sion, almost each calling-, has its own
particular club where members can meet
one another or their friends, dine, read
the newspapers, transact business or play
games of some sort. The majority of the
clubs are well known, if only by name,
but very few have even heard of the
Diamond Merchants' club, in Hatton
p.-mien.
The name speaks for itself. It is called
the Diamond clvb —fir, to give It iis full
name, the Diamond Merchants and Jew
elers" club, I..imiled—and the chief re
quisite for membership is that the new
comer should be concerned with or in
the diamond trade. Hatton garden is a
busy thoroughfare, and seems to reek of
diamonds, so to speak. The principal
room of the Diamond club has a half
slass roof which lets in a glare of lighr
on the transaction which take place, .'n
this room may be seen more millionaires
at one time than in any other spot in the
world. Another room is cunningly dark
ened so as to give relief to tired eyes.
One member may be reading a news
paper, when another comes over and tells
him h<- wants a few diamonds, explaining
the kind, etc. The first man vili imme
diately give him two or three little paper
packets to inspect, naming the price, and
tha se-cond man will take them over to the
window, while the first will calmly con
tinue reading his paper.
- The first man is probably a broker, who
has obtained the diamonds from a mer
chant, and he has a certain price from
which he cannot abate. If the purchaser
considers the price fair and the econes
good he will suggest that they go into
one of the little partitions or cubicles
whioh are set apart for this purpose.
These little divisions face the light.—for
it is absolutely necessary to have a bright
light, very liitle business being done on
a dull day—are fitted up with a shelf and
a pair of scales, and when the small boU
is slipped on the door the buyer and sell
er are fre.c from any interruption.
The scales are in a glass case, for th«
others from a kind of tinsel, so light that
slightest bit of dust would affect the
delicate mechanism, a single hair making
a d fference in the working of this won
derful little contrivance. The largest
weights are made of metal, but the
a breath will blow them away. Some
idea may bs gathered of th:ir minute
ness whin one realizes that the smallest
one only weighed the sixty-fourth part
of a carat! For the purpose of show-
Ing up the beauties of the stones they
are laid on different colored papers—
blue for pearls, b'.ack for opals, etc.
The club was originally started by two
men who had at last realized that it
wa.s not safe to hold these bu-lness con
ferences in a public house, which had
Hitherto been the custom. It was such
a success that the members soon bought
out the proprietors and turned it into
a limited liability company. It has pro
gressed so rapidly that is has quite re
cen'ly moved into new premises, which
the '-lent of the club. H. Bernhardt,
was 'rteous in showl: g me over.
Mr. Bcrnirjrdt is the diamond merchant
from whom most of our great actors and
actresses buy their diamonds, and it
speaks well for h'm that when they have
once been to him they never go any
where else.
Many of the members of the Diamond
Merchants' club are foreigners, although
maiiy Englishmen are among the num
ber. Dominos and < ards are provided,
but no game of cards In allowed before
4 o'clock, and then only solo wh'st may
be played, the slightest tendency to gam
ble being strictly prohibited.
This is. perhaps, the only club that

BIG EET ON BRYAN.
James R. Ke«»n«>, the Wall Street
Hear, HI alt en It.
New York Cor. in St. Louis Republic.
Perhaps the inns' striking figure to
take th€ Democratic-Bryan end of the
argument in an aggressive :<n<l militant
way Is James R. Keene, the czar of
Wall street, the unchallenged king of
speculation. Mr. Keene was for McKin
ley in 1896; gave $40,000 toward hi.-; cam
paign. Today he is for Bryan, and had
a long Interview with the Nebraskan o:i
the occasion of a recent visit.
New York is shallow and there 1? no
voice to b" so potent with New York
as the jingling voice of money.
Therefore, the story to follow murV
a deal of uneasy st'r among McKinley
i'.ilks. ll was ju:-t prior to Mr. Kerne s
recenl Bail for England. He and a party
of gentlemen were ;it dinner in Delmoni
ce's. One of them—an aanerent of Mc-
Kinley, and somewhat oversteeped in that
form of Eastern Ignorance that makes no
account of any West or South—was vo
ciferously confident of coming Republi
can success. This sage closed his Repub.
lican declamation w.th a mad desire to
bet. He was eager for a wager. Mr.
Keene bent on him his steel-gray eye,
that eye which for twenty years has
looked further and more profitably into
Wall street futures than any other, and
asked:
"What odds do you want to offer on
McKinley? I infer from your exhuber
ance that you've something more start
ling to propose than even money?"
"Call it two to one In thousands," ex
claimed the McKinley adherent.
"Contrary to the belief of many," re
torted Mr. Keene, "I seldom make a bet.
But I'll depart from my rule on th;s oc
casion, and wager a trifle with you.
Moreover, I won't take the odds you prof
fer—they're* unfair. I'll do better by
you. I'll wager you $7,500 against $10,000
that Bryan defeats McKinley."
The McKinley champion hesitated. Ora
tory was one thing; a cold proposal to
jeopardize $10,000 on his Republican hopes
and fears was another. Again his oppo
nent's well known . genius to foresee
events, a genius which makes him the
magician of the course, daunted him.
Taking two other gentlemen in as equal
partners he accepted Mr. Keene's offer,
and $10,000 against $7,500 that McKinley
defeats Bryan was wagered. This trans
action has not done a lUtle to wet-blan
ket those forward anticipations of local
Republicans that their party is to have a
walkover. Mr. Keene has never, within
their experience, failed to have reasons
for any faith within him, and his
prompt wager puzzles while it dismays
them.
"The people of this country," said Mr.
Keene, In a recent conversation, "must
arouse themselves. The coming election
Is of more importance from the stand
point of pure and true Americanism than
any that has transpired since the election
of Lincoln. Money is in the saddle; it is
riding down the institutions of this coun
try with a confident insolence that tells
of the firm belief of its own invincibility.
It is running the government today in its
every branch and arm. If moneys power
in molding public affairs goes forward for
four years more as it has for the four
year? past the name of American liberty
will only be worth a recollection as a
matter of history. Money is pressing the
people backward step by step. What la
the end to be? If it goes on there are, as
matters stand, but two solutions. One is
socialism and the other Is evolution. The
American people must defend themselves
against money just as they once did in the
forests from the savages. Unless they
oome solidly, shoulder to shoulder, for
their rights, and come at once. Bunker
Hill •will have been a blunder; Yorktown
a mistake."
