Disastrous reports of tho late
storm on the gulf coast still continue
to come in. It was, perhaps, tho
most devastating storm known in our
history. Tho old theory that tho
settlement and cultivation of a
country tended to make destructive
storms less froquont has been badly
invalidated of late.
f There will doubtless be many in

TnE current of human history is
very seldom doflectod one way
or tho other by tho outcome
of a South American rebel
lion. When the rebels overthrow
tho government it is simply one band
of rebels defeating another band of
rebels, and it matters little to tbo
world which rebels are victorious.
Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria is in
great financial straits, although ho
has spent almost $2,009,009 which
his generous subjects have furnished
him during the past three or four
years. He has just borrowed $200, -
000 apiece from his father-in-law and
from Baron Hirsch. By and by it
may begin to dawn upon the people
of Bulgaria that a man who cannot
manage his own financial affairs bet
ter than this is not fit to manage
their government.
A German scientific weekly pro
posed tho riddle: “Do water wheels
run faster in tho night than in tho
daytime —and why?” Correspondence
grew up around the subject, multi
plied reasons, upset them, restated
them and finally brought tho ques
tion into so much prominence that it
became ingrafted into the columns
of a French rival across tho border.
Tho process began again. At last
some one asks: “Why not look at a
water whoel and see if it is true?”
Economy in tho matter of safe
guards invariably proves expensive
to railroad companies in tho end. It
Is asserted that a wreck which oc
curred recently on a road leading out
of Chicago was directly duo to the
closing of a uight telegraph office in
ordor to cut down oxpenses: and this
in the face of tho fact that tho road
was carrying 100,090 passengers a
month more than its ordinary traffic
because of travel to tho world's fair.
B y discharging a telegraph operator
and closing tho office the company
••saved” perhaps $15 or $50 a month.
The wreck due to this economy will
probably cost tho company anywhere
from $25,000 to $100,0 0 in actual
loss and damago suits, to say nothing
of the bad reputation which tho
wreck gives tho road, which will lose
It many thousands more. There is
no necessity for pointing a moral in
this case. Tho facts speuk for them
Another complaint crossing tho
Atlantic is to the effect that the hotel
companies in London are groaning
because of the dull season, which is
largely duo to the fact of Americans
patronizing their own country this
year. Americans are a species of
milch cow for Europe's maintenance,
and it is no wonder if things collapse
without the rich nourishments they
always afford. It i3 well, however,
for them to remain home now and

It may be that Alsaco and Lor
raine will prove Germany’s white
elephant. France wants them back
now even more than right after
Louis Napoleon's downfall. The
thirst for a reclamation of the terri
tory grows as the time of Germany's
possession of it grows. Is it worth
the sacrifice of blood and treasure
whieh forever seems imminent? It
would be infinitely hotter to com
promise by turning the two provinces
over to the Netherlands or to .Switz
erland. They seem more difficult to
koep than they were to acquire.

Hon. Hoke Bmltb. secretary of the Interior,
has decided that the motion for a review of
tho case of the Union colony of Colorado Atid
others against John T. Fulmela ntiu others
should be denied. The effect oi this decision
is to confirm tho title to all property in
Greeler. The Denver Land Office received
the decision Saturday. The secretary holde
that the entries by Fisher, which were al
lowed to lapse, aad tho entries of Fulmele
and others two years after 1887, when the
act was passed making the laud not subject
to entry, were vitiated. The entries by Ful
mele were Improperly allowed. Greeley’s
present property owners’ titles are safe.
Colonel L. P. Hoyt has made a discovery at
Golden that will add nnothcr industry to the
clay business. Recently he discovered a clay
which is universally used by potters for glaz
ing earthenware. Outside of New Jersey
this Is the only deposit known to exist In tho
United States and as there arc inexhaustible
quantities around Golden, the Colonel pro
poses to compete for the demand of the en
tire United States. The “glaze" 1b readily
marketed at #2O to #23 a ton. and as It can lie
plowed up and loaded on board cars at u net
cost of 75 cents a ton it is obvious that the
discovery Is better than high grade silver at
the present time.

To Prevent Wrecks.
The numerous disastrous railway wrecks In
the East recently have put the managers of
Western lines on tbeir guard, and nnusual
precautions against accidents are now being
tnken. The Banta Fe company ordered that
hereafter every pasaenger train on the line be

flagman on the rear platform constantly, and
the official order reads that this flagman must
not leave his post to eat or sleep until be Is
relieved by some one capable of standing

•collisions. Other roads will likely follow the
example and adopt some similar scheme. gj

placed him at a disadvantage, and to a cer

Mr. Voorhees, If applied toby a person ac

such as the satisfaction of doing something

that his father up to this day will not admit
nnd docs not believe that any man he ever
defended for crime wa.* guilty, “lie Is al
ways trying," said Reese, "to save a poor,
persecuted man who has been hunted down
by some enemies." This is literally tho
truth, and H Is this great quality of heart and
blind that disqualifies Mr. Voorhecs for lead
ership In a desperate parliamentary struggle
that requires aggressiveness, stubborness and
no tenderness for the enemy for the time br
ing, should he happen to be nnd old friend.
Gorman Is always cold as an Icicle, seem
ingly. He watches his opportunity; he yields
when necessary; he Is aggressive as Muiat
when he sees bis chance. Voorhees. too. wns
weakened as a leader heennso of his regard
for the old Bourbon traditions of senatorial
courtesy, which, if carried out to their literal
extent, a* Is frequently done by the older sen
ators, would prevent any senator from doing
anything that any other senator objected to.
Voorhees has been so long In tbc Senate that
he has become a great stickler for the tradi
tions of that chnmhcr and for senatorial
courtesy. When appealed to, therefore, ns
he wo* frequently by the opponents of repeal,
who knew and understood his kindly nature,
to go easy, not to force things, to bo moder
ate, conservative, or to live up to the "tradi
tions of the Senate,” be Invariably found him
self forced to yield.
Not so with Gorman when ho was conduct
ing the force bill fight. He never yield’d
when he saw an advantage. As Abrnbmu
Lincoln used to eay. he kept pegging away all
the time. He retreated when he bad to, he
advanced when hd could. Gorman's man
agement of the force bill fight will go down
in the history of the Senate os one of tbc
most marvelous fights In tbc great contests of
that body.
On the silver side of tho fight Henry M.
Teller of Colorado was the leader. Ho did
not come to tbc front unless It was necessary,
but when he look tho lead In person be waa
skillful, bold, adroit and aggressive. Unlike
Voorhecs, perhaps, Mr. Teller had his whole
heart In the contest. Ho was absolutely In
earnest, so mneb In earnest In fact, that on
more than one occasion he forced tears to
bis eyes. Teller is always cool, always
watchful, and a master of parliamentary too i
tics. He can lead a filibustering party as
well as any man who ever served In Congress,
with the posslblo exception of Gorman.
Teller bos a profound knowledge of the
silver question. He has made It a careful
study. In fighting for silver he was execut
ing the mandate of his people. Entirely in
different to public opinion outside the state
of Colorado, despising Eastern Influences
more particularly the voloe of New York and
Boston and Philadelphia papers, he was a
dangerous adversary no matter bow large the
majority against him might be and with no
rulea of the Senate to control him. Teller
always hod a stock of speakers on hand. He
reserved them when the tiring ont process
waa engaged In and filibnsters kept calling
for a quorum every five or six minutes.
Teller carefully kept bis Interesting talkers
silent and made his dullest and most weari
some and tiring speakers entertain the Senate
and the galleries.
This is the reason why Btewsrt did so much
talking, and why Peffer had so many oppor
tunities, and why Allen of Nebraska was al
lowed to hold the floor for fifteen hours.
Teller argued, and wisely, that It would be
no great hardship to senators to sit
In their comfortable cushioned chairs and
listen to a brilliant and Interesting speech.

and bride and was always put at the front
whenever Teller wanted to revive the activity
In debate.
The enfant terrible of the silver men Wif
Dubois of Idaho. He the abiashei - o!
senatorial dignity, although the newspaper
men have dubbed him ‘’The Defender of Sen
atorial Dignity,” a title which pleases him
1 immensely. Dubois Is a youngster. He
graduated from Yale College and la a native
cf Springfield, Illinois, where his father, well
known ha “Uncle Jesse Dubois,” waa for a
long time a prominent Whig and afterwards
a Republican politician. Dubois is a nephew
»>i Senator Voorhoes, and perhaps for that
reason, he was put forward by the allver men
to avoid affronting that senator. The uncle
and nephew got alotjß very hmiiibly. They
had no severe spats* although they exchanged
some pretty severe back talk from time to
Gmc, but always with a courteous string at
tached to It. Dubois made'a* good deai o>
character during the contest; he proved him
self well up In parliamentary knowledge apd
a debater of first-elasa rapacity. Being the
voungesl than among the silver men, ho un
dertook the brunt of the fight. He has never
been nbeent from his scat since the real con
test began. He was tbe man to make things
unpleasant for the majority. It was he Who
made objections to unanimous consent; it
was he who opposed adjournments and re
cesses; In fact he had to perform all the rough
duties that the filibusters had to engage In,
but It* believed In hit heart that he was serv
ing his people In his Kate in doing so, and he
enjoyed his work. He never lost temper
from start to finish, waa always smiling and
good-natured !n the beat of every fight,
hiu/s mo hit.
Perhaps tbe man of all others who mads
himself n chaiacter during the last week of
the contest ws* Senator David B. Hill of New
York. Everybody expected, of course, that
there must be something la Mr. Ilill or be
never coaid have reached tbo height of
authority that he enjoys in New York state,
hut tbe belief was pretty gcueral here that
Hill was merely a cunning, wily politician
without Any r. rent ability, and that he had
oniy the courage of the fox. That belief has
bcenjvery successfully dispelled. He stands
at the present time In the front rank of the
senators, with a character that it would take
some blunders to destroy.
He Is a strorg, bold speaker. lie is a mas
ter of parliamentary tact, and it was his
grcsslveness In Insisting upon a change of thti
rules and his nerslstonoc in smashing senato
rial Idols and uis contempt for mossback tra
ditions that scored the extremes of both sides
Into finally consenting to an agreement. He
scared the silver men because If they per
sisted they would change the rules of tbe
Senate and bring In closure, and then the re
peal bill would pass without any conditions
annexed fo it whatever. He scared some of
the older repealers who arc sticklers for sena
torial courtesy, prerogatives and traditions,
and who Tlatc the very name of closure, and
they begon to yield. His last week’s fight In
tbe frenato Is very liable to result not only In
enhanced reputation for him, but Itl Increased
strength In New York among the element
with whlih he was weak, and perhaps a rcc
oncUlail in with I’icf.hlcnt Cleveland. A re
port has reached the JUpnbUe correspondent
this evening that It lithe intention of Mr.
Cleveland to send for Mr. HUI after the fight
is over In tbe Senate and extend the hand of
amity to him.
Ssnat >rs Vest and Cockrell took an active
part in the proceedings from start to finish.
It was ftanntor Vest's speech at tbe beginning
of the session that set the pace for tbe silver
mea ard endowed them with courage; It was
Senator Cockrell’s aggressiveness and per
sistency that prevented many of the Demo
cratic nllvnr men from yielding to tbo Influ
ence ot tbe administration long ago. Sena
tor Hurls, of Tennessee, was the chief parlia
mentarian among iho silver men. Senator
VoorVecn, of course, with Gray, Mills, Vilas,
White and Aldrich on tbe Republican side,
mnnaged the repeal campaign.
The strongest speech made for repeal was
that of Senator Mills. The ablest for silver
was that cf Jones of Nevada, and the most
brilliant of the anti-repeal speeches was that
of Daniel of Virginia. Caffery Of Louisiana
made a strong address for repeal. Blackburn
of Kcntuoky made a most able effort against
repeal an 1 In favor of compromise. The
speeches made by Walthall of Mississippi
against rej val are considered by some of the
repeal senators as the best argument in many
ways on tbut side of the question. Walthall
always spes ks well and never comes before
tbe Senate unprepared.
Colorado River Improvements.
Governor Hughes of Arizona has had an
important conference with Minister Romero
of Mexico touching improvementt
of the Colorado river which would add
to Its Importance ns a channel of commerce.
The governor reported to Minister Romern
that the Colorado Is the second largest rive*
on tbo California coast and said that with se
cure Jetties ut the mouth and with some
dredging along tbo course of the stream it
could bo made navigable for a length of 900
miles, far up Into Arltoua and Nevada. He
Kiatod thst the mountainous region of tbe
Western part of tbe United States traversed
by this stream was rich In minerals, while the
lower couwtry would soon become a lino agri
cultural and horticultural region. He stated
that Mexico along tbe Gulf of California was
possessed of largo forest* of fine timber and
Immense deposit* of coal In both of which ar
ticles the southwestern portion of the United
Stall* Is deficient. Governor Hughes think#
the government of tbe United States would
rnahe the Improvements necesjary within it#
boundary if the Mexican government would
iiud?rtako to do as much within Mexican ter
rlto'y. The lower ISO miles of the river in in
M mister Romero was very much impressed
wltr the representation made by the governor
and said he would recommend that bis gov
ernment give tbo matter attention. He
tbought the best war to proceed would be for
the two governments to Join In the appoint
ment of a commission to Investigate the sa
tire question.
Suit Against Charles Foster.
CDavnLAHD, 0., Oct. 28.— A Timu special
from Tiffin, Ohio, says that suit was begun
there to-night by Mrs. Anna Ball of Fostoria,
Oh'o, one of the creditors of ex-Governor
Foster, to enjoin the transfer of certain prop
erty, real and personal. It is alleged In the
petition that the firm was known to be in
solvent two years ago; that in October, 1883,
Charles Foster deeded his homestead and
other real property to his mother, who in
turn deeded It to fats wife, but tbe deeds were
not recorded until the day of the assignment,
May 28, 1803; that on March HI, 1808, Charles
Foster and wife deeded 8110,000 worth of
property to William L. Harkness, a creditor,
but the deeds were not reoorted until after
the assignment. It Is farther allegea that
Charles Olmstead and John E. Wllklneonal
#o transferred oertgla real and personal prop
erty on the day of tbe assignment. Tempo
rary Injunctions were grsatad reetralnlogal]
the defendants from transferring or dlspos- j
ing of nay of the property in question, and
tbe recorders of the three counties
It is located were restrained from "cording
any doeament making each transfer. The
committee awpioaled by the creditors some
time slaoe Is hack of the suit.

Alnlck violate* tbejt efide Of ethic* In not

consumption. He Is very free to furnish bis
medicines to other physicians, and according
to reports, apparently well authenticated, bla
remedies have proved vory ofllcaolou*. A
committee of physicians went to ClncllidaU a
few days ago to Investigate the matter an l
were convinced that Dr. Amlck had made a

with his confreres of medicine, and even If
he has violated the code of ethics the laws of
Ohio cannot be used against him.”
The Minneapolis Journal says: Dr. Amlck,
who has acquired a great deai of celebrity of
late by hi* successful treatment of phthisis,
has recently had bis cure Investigated by ami
at the Instigation ot the newspapers of Cleve
land. Of ten almost hopeless esses which
were selected only one died, two were pro
uounccd cured, four showed marked Imrrovc
im-nt, and three were much Improved. In nl.
cases ibero was an,.lncrease in. weight, and
the subject* had only been under treatment
for two months. Tho physicians wb<
watched the course of treatment all expressed
themselves as satisfied with the cure and tes
tified ns to the great value of tho discovery
But a number of doctors who were Inter
rlewcd accused Dr. Amlck of “violating the
code." He has made one of the most won
derful and valuable discoveries ever hoped
for In medicine, but he refuses to give the
formulae to every Torn, Dick and llarry ic
monkey with, and he therefore violates tho
code. It la a noteworthy fact that tbe major
lly of physicians who have #o much to my
about the “code” never accomplish anything
of note, but feel satisfied If only they bavt
kept their senseless fetich from rude viola
tion. Fortunately the public, which given
the physician bis support, desn’t care a fig
for tbe “code,” and is always ready and will
ing to give honor and credit to the man who
[discovers anything that will alleviate tbe suf
fering* of humanity, whether he keeps bin
formulae to himself or gives It freely away
for qnacks to pick Up and use In their bust
Tbe Minneapolis Tlnut, after referring edi
torially to the action of tho state board of
health of Michigan in placing consumption
on the list of Infectious diseases, recommends
tho Amlck treatment, because “thirty ot
more physicians In the city are usmg the
medicines compounded by Dr. Amlck in tlu-lr
practice and arc of the opinion that the med
icines accomplish more than the discoverer
claims. It may be-that a reliable cure lias
been found but If not that It seems certain
that a help has been Introduced which great

To Isolate Consumptive*.
I Pun.ADßi.pniA, Pa., Oct. 11. —The actic-u
of the County Medical Society In asking the
board of health to isolate consumptives lias
Increased their fears occasioned by startling
beadlines In a local paper by the resolution
of medical congress In Washington and liy
the state legislature of Michigan nil declaring
ibe deadly disease infectious. Tbo deaths
from consumption have decreased every where
during tho past year, and Dr. Fleck, with n
few others, ascribes this to his Isolation tho
bry. Medical experts investigating deeper,
however, say It Is due to the Aralckjcure, free
test packages of wblob are dlstributo.l broad

One authority says: “The doctors talking

I Minneapolis, Oct. 14.—Recent edltcrials
in the local pres* on the Amlck cure for con
sumption have excited ultra-conservative doc
tors. The Timet says: “It seems reasonably
certain It will greatly assist the fight against
the enemy of human life, for thirty or more
local physicians say the medicines acconi
ipllshed more than the discoverer claimed.”
(The Journal'* editorial after saying “It is one

gratulates humanity that the formulae Is not

Nature's Best Work I* Done In the
Nlfht lime.
It Is -a curious fact that night is
tho time which naturo utilizes for ;
growth. Plants grow much more in 1
tho night than in tho day .line, as
can be proved any tirno by measure
ment Measure a vine at flight, then
measuro it again in tho morning,
and the next night, and it will bo ;
found that the night growth is two [
or three times that accomplished
during tho day. During tho day tho
plant is vory busy gathering nour
ishment from various sources, and
during tho night this raw material
is assimilated into the plant lifd
Tho 6amo fact is truo of tho ani
mal creation. Children grow more
rapidly during the night, says Uocd
Health. In the daytime, when the
child is awake and active, the system
is kept busy disposing of the waste.;
consequent on this activity; but dur
ing sleep the system is freo to ex
tend its operations beyond the men;
replacing of worn-out particles, licuco
the rapid growth.
This is why sc many invalids noed
so rotich rest and sleep. Tho system
has been taxed for yoars beyond it.t
ability to repair the tissues, and
hence the organism has become worn
and disabled from the accumulation
of waste products, and discaso bus
resultod. With the proper condi
tions restored and a sense of perfect
rest, nature will reassert herself,
cloaring up tho clogged and dirty
tissues and restoring the organs to
thoir normal condition.
