WILSON SAID
TO OPPOSE CLARK
Also Underwood They Fa
vor Johnson to
Lead
Washington. May 1 The calling off
of the meeting of the Democratic con
gressional committee Tuesday' night at
the request of President Wilson, accord
ing to some rumors, i the topic of much
speculation at the .House. The real
leaon for the postponement is said to
I.e that representative A. Mitchell Pal
mer of Pennsylvania, prospective candi
date for speaker two years hence, is try
ing to secure the election of a chairman
favorable to him instead of to Champ
Clark. As a result of yesterday's doing.
Representative Ben Johnson of Ken
tucky, who had been indorsed for the
chairmanship by Speaker Clark and Ma
jority Leader Underwood, is gathering
his forces together preparatory to fight
ing the issue to" a' finish. If it is true
that President Wilson is aiding Palmer
in opposition to Johnson then there will
be a pretty little struggle for mastery,
during which it is possible that Champ
Clark may let his simmering bitterness
boil over.
It is explained that the only object the
president may have had in suggesting a
postponement was that some Wrought
should be given to a plan whereby the
Democratic national committee and the
Democratic congressional campaign com
mittee would co-operate in the manage
ment of the congressional campaign next
How She Fooled the Doctor
Three years ago my little girl, An
gela, was taken sick with scarlet fever
and later dropsy set in; her face and
limbs swelled and her eyes puffed. A
leading physician here at the time,
treated her .without the slightest success.
A sample of your Swamp-Root having
b left at the house at the time, I
resolved to try it, and as it agreed with
her stomach I continued using it with
grateful results. The inflammation be
gan io subside after she had taken the
first fifty-cent bottle, and after Bhe took
two large bottles she was pronounced
cured by the doctor and has been in good
health ever since. The doctor came to
gee her every day and examined her
every second day until he pronounced
her kidneys in perfect condition.
Now then the doctor was under the
impression that I was giving my girl
his medicine, but as his medicine had
failed to do a bit of good, and desiring
not to offend him, I did not tell him
I was giving her Swamp-Root and he
did not know the difference. I did not
use one drop of his medicine after I
started my girl on Swamp-Root, and
have always felt that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root saved my girl's life, for
(Which I am grateful.,-
I cannot praise it too highly.

vear. Members of the congressional com
mittee said yesterday that the national
committee would probably be consulted
before another meeting of the , congre
Honal committee is called. According to
Democratic members of the House the
president feds that care should be taken
in the organization of the congressional
committee. He realizes, so it was pointed
out yesterday, that the tariff legislation
will have to "be defended in the congres
sional campaign next year, and under the
circumstances he makes the point that
he is as much interested as the members
of the House of Representatives who will
bo seeking reelection.
WAR THREAT BY
AUSTRIAN S A BLUFF
Made to Hasten Action by the Powers,
But Troops Still Move Toward
Frontier.
London, Mav 1. The Montenegrin sit
uation was believed in diplomatic circles
to be somewhat clarified yesterday by
Austria-Hungary's announcement that
k .i.iui mnimrchv would not proceed
against King Nicholas until after the
meeting of the ambassadors or tne pow
ers scheduled for to-day at the foreign
office. ,
When Austria-Hungary Tuesday al
lowed a semi-official statement to go
forth that she would declare war against
tha lifflo kintrdom if Scutari were not
evacuated within 24 hours after yester
day, it was a diplomatic move vo uigo
the powers to quicken action.
Inflammatory editorials Tuesday in the
German and Viennese newspapers, dip
lomats say, were inspired by the two
governments to force united action.
Dispatches rrom rans, jemn mm
Vienna yesterday said the bourses had a
firmer tine than yesterday and that ap
parently confidence had been restored.
v..,-.,rtKnlpa tin movement of Austrian
troops toward the frontier continues and
thousands of men are under arms, reauy
for instant action.
The report that Austria-Hungary had
recalled her minister at Cettinje appar
ently was without foundation.

barreled revolver in the face of Miss
Nellie O'Connor, cashier in the hotel
Venive at the north end. last night, a
bandit ordered dier to hand over all the

Threatening to shoot her "full of

Don't Leave Barre
No Need to Seek Afar The Evidence
Is at Your Door.
No need to leave Barre to hunt up
proof, because you have it hero at home.
The straightforward statement of a
Barre resident like that given below,
bears an interest for every man, woman
or child here in Barre.
C. N. Benedict, blacksmith, 8 Eastern
avenue, Barre, Vt., says; "Four or Ave
vears ago f had a fall and severely in
jured ibv back. From that time on, I
was troubled by pains across my loins
and kidneys. Stooping nr lifting would
cause great distress, and I was annoyed
on account of lameness and a dull ache
across mv loins. The kidney secretion
also bothered me. They were highly
colored and contained sediment. A
friend, knowing how I was troubled, ad
vised me to try Donn's Kidney Pills, and
I did so. They drove away the misery
in mv back, regulated the passages of
the kidney secretions and improved my
condition in every way."
The above statement was given in Sep
tember, 1908, and when Mr. Benedict
was interviewed bv a representative on
August 20, 1012, lie said: "I still use
Doan's Kidney Pills, and they do me as
much good as when I first recommended
l.Tt'lll BdlllP t.-lvin , fig". -

ble." For sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cents.

DISMISSES WRIT
IN POLICE COURT
Alleged Grafting Inspectors Must Re
main in Custody, Supreme
Court Decides.
New York. May 1. Former Police In
spectors Sweeney. Murtha. Hussey and
Thompson, on trial on indictments charg
ing conspiracy to obstruct justice, will
have to be locked up every night of their
trial. The appellate division of the su
preme court so decided yesterday in dis
missing a writ of habeas corpus issued
in their behalf Tuesday night.
The four inspectors were taken from
Tombs prison to the court room, hand
cuffed to guards, in taxicabs. For a time
it looked as if they would be nwTched
through the streets, as there was no
van available to transport them. The
prisoners sent an urgent appeal to head
quarters for a patrol wagon and when
this request was denied they were al
lowed to procure taxicabs. They cheer
fully paid their own fare and that of
their .keeper. ....
After the appellate division had dis
missed the habeas corpus writ, ti.e trial
was resumed in the supreme, court.
In ruling on the application for the
release of the inspectors, the appellate
judges were unanimous in the opinion
that while the statute provided thrt
persons charged with a misdemeanor
as the accused officers aremay be ad
mitted to bail pending trial, it rests
with the judge as to whether the bond
shall be terminated when the defendant
is urought into court.
Justice Seabury gTanted District At
torney Whitman's motion to terminate
the bonds Tuesday.

When You Want a Thing Done
Right, Do It Yourself
The man .who wants his tobacco cut up for him
months before he smokes it, just to save a minute's time,
cannot blame the manufacturer because the tobacco gets
dried up, burns fast in his pipe and scorches his tongue.
There's only one way to get fretk tobacco cut it up your
self a$ you use it, from the Sickle plug. Then you get all the
original flavor and moisture that have been pressed into the plug
and kept there by the natural leaf wrapper and you are rewarded
by a cool, sweet, satisfying smoke.
Every day more smokers are coming back to the good old
Sickle plug and satisfaction. Buy a plug of Sickle at your dealer's
and note how much more tobacco you get, when there's no
package to pay for.
