THE SEMI-WEEKLY MESSENGER, TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 1897.
THE ARGUMENT BEGUN
P. P. P., Lippman's Crcat Remedy, Saves
a Man From Becoming a Cripple.
J!r. Asa An-mons, a well-known
citizen of Jacksonville, Florida, was
afflicted by a terrible ulcer. Medical
skill seemed unavailing in stopping- the
ravages of the terrible disease. The
leg was swollen and intensely painful,
as the ulcer had eaten its way down
to the very bone. All medicines and
treatments having failed to effect a
cure, the- doctors said the leg must
come off. Just when it seemed that
Mr. Aminons would become a disabled
and a crippled man, he tried P. P. P.,
Lippman's Great Remedy, and the re
sult was wonderful.
P. P. P. SAVES HIS LEG.
Jacksonville, Fla., July 1, 1895.
Two years ago I had the worst ulcer
on my leg I ever saw. It had eaten
down to the bone, and my whole leg
below my knee, and my foot was
swollen and inflamed. The bone was
swollen and painful, and discharged a
most offensive matter. My physicians
said I had necrosis of the bone, and
my leg would have to come off. At
this stage I commenced to take P. P. P.
and to bathe my leg with hot castile
soap suds. It began to improve at
once and healed rapidly, and is to-day
a sound and useful leg.
" I think P. P. P., Lippman's Great
Remedy, is all a man could ask for as
a blood purifier, as I have known it to
cure so metcrriblo cases of blood poi
soning in a remarkably short time.
TERRIBLE BLOOD POISON.
The body covered with sores two
bottles of P. P. P. made a positive and
permanent cure. This is only one of
man- thousand similar cases.
Catarrh yields at once to P. P. P.
That smothered feeling at night, that
heavy feeling in the day can and
should be removed ; P. P. P. will do it
if you only give it a chance.
Indigestion and constipation gohand
in hand. Headaches and total loss ol
appetite are the results. Regulate
yourself and tone up your stomach
with P. P. P.

A ew Yorker, writing from Hot
Springs, Va., where he has evidently
been refreshing his intellect, puts his
inconvenient question to The New York
Tribune: "Last fall, when the pendu
lum swung our way, we made it a mat
ter of enthusiasm and serious congrat
ulation. We p.iii that at la?t ths oeO- i
pie were awake and thinking, and we I
took great heart for the future. Now j
that the centre of gravity send.? it in '
the other direction, are we ty cail it
eccentricity, ard say that it doesn't
count?" As the predator gentleman

bor's hennery in the daikr.e5.- Z night j

concerning the moral significance of

that would upset the wholi system of
theology!" Philadelphia Record.
'Mr. Gladstone's l?ttcr to Dampzes. a
Macedonian leader, is a most important
public document, fjr it says with au
thority what the liberals and all en
lightened organs cf opinion the world j
over have been saying all along that
the K';gl;sh government is obviously
beir.rr used by Russia to bolster up the
Turkish cmr-ire, and that the concert,
instead cf settling the eastern ques
tion, is continuing inflaming it. "It is
not th? people or government of Great j
Britain that are directing the course j
of the Cretan and Greek questions. Un- i
der the present deplorable scheme all
our government has to do is to plead
for its opinions as if it were before a
tribunal of those youthful despots, the
emperors cf Germany and Russia, and
to abide by and help execute their
finil determination. They tow Aus
tria behind them, and through one of
the two have a resistless hold upon
France." New York Kvening Post.
The following paragraph is from the
New York Mail and Express: "Great
Britain doesn't like the Dingley bill,
Germany has protested against it. It
aly and the Netherlands have recorded
their disapproval. France, according to
official reports, is about to register her
displeasure. What more vigorous in
dorsement of the proposed tariff legis
lation could the republican party ask
or the United States expect?" A more
perfect expression of protectionist feel
ing than is contained in the paragrph
is impossible. The countries named
are the greatest buyers of our pro
ducts. If they did not buy many of
our producers would be reduced to a
miserable state of poverty. But to the
protectionist mind they are implacable
enemies. The fact that they wish to sell
as well as to buy proves them to be
enemies. Their protest against a law
which makes it more difficult for com
mercial intercourse with the United
States to be maintained is therefore the
best possible proof that the law" is a
good one. Jacksonville Times-Union.
The widely spread reports of profita
ble activity in southern industries, par
ticularly in southern cotton manufac
turing, not only alarmed the Massachu
setts manufacturers, but rendered it
necessary, it seems, that the latter
should take some steps to discredit the
rumoivd industrial boom in the south,
in order to quiet the restlessness both
of labor and capital in the eastern
mills. It is sought to accomplish this
latter necessity now by publishing the
report of some kind of a commission
that visited the southern establish
ments and made copious notes and
comparisons. The commission profess
to have found no occasion for eastern
alaim in the industrial condition in the
souih. They declare that southern
operatives work sixty-six and seventy
two hours per week where the Massa
chusetts hands work fifty-four; that
the increase in cotton manufacturing
is not rapid and competition is not dan
gerous to the northern mills. They
found the field, they declare, by no
means inviting either to labor or capi
tal. This is all very well as a means
of allaj'ing eastern fears, but ir does
not disturb the far-t that the cotton in
dustry so far as developed in fhe south
is in a mnt prosperous condition. It
dona n,i; ;i- sative the proposition that
u h o mills are generally pa ying
large dividend? and the report falsi
fies the situation when it declares that

Synopsis of the Nelson Kill Passed by the
Washington, April 22. The bank
ruptcy bill passed by the senate today
was framed by Senator Nelson, of Min
nesota, and is comparatively brief and
simple, compared with the bill reported
from the judiciary committee and
known as the Torrey bill. The Nelson
bill provides that any debtor, other
than a corporation, owing $200 or more
J who is unable to pay his debts, may
hie his petition in the district court of
the United States for the district cr di
vision thereof in wheh he resides, ask
ing for a discharge from his debts, and
offering to surrender all his property
for the payment of his debts, except
such as is exempt by the law of his
domicile from execution and liability
for debts. The petitioner shall attach
to his petition a schedule and list of
all his property, exempt and unexempt,
and a schedule and list of all his cred
itors and the amount and nature of the
debts due each, and shall offer to sur
render all his exempt property for the
payment of his debts, and shall con
clude with a prayer for a full discharge
from his debts and liabilities. The pe
tition shall be heard by the court not
less than thirty or more than ninety
days from the time it is tiled. If the
court upholds the petition the. estate of
the bankrupt is transferred to an "as
signee" for settlement.
Creditors can resist the proceeding:?
before the court on certain enumerated
grounds, of fraud, preference to cred
itors etc. Preferences four months prior
to filing bankruptcy petitions are null
and void and transfers of property
within six months are void. Provision
is made for distributing the estate
among creditors. After the settlement
the court gives a final hearing and
when all proceedings have been regu
lar, a final decree is given, "discharg
ing and acquitting the bankrupt from
all his debts and liabilities due any of
the creditors described in the schedule
attached to his petition, or to any of
the creditors who may at any time sub
sequent thereto become a party to the
proceedings. But such discharge shall
not include any debts or obligations
which shall have been created in con
sequence of his defalcation as a public
officer, or as an executor, administra
tor, guardian or trustee or while acting
in any other fiduciary capacity; nor
any debt or obligation to any surety
of the bankrupt who has paid or may
pay any such fiduciary debt or any part
of it, nor any debt or obligation created
by the obtaining of moneys or property
under false pretenses."
The provision as to involuntary bank
ruptcy is as follows:
"That if any debtor being a banker,
broker, merchant, trader or manufac
turer, who owes $500 or over, and who
is unable to pay his debts, shall at
any time within four months of the
time of the filing of the petition here
inafter mentioned, assign, transfer,
convey, or in any manner voluntarily
encumber any of his property with the
actual Intent and purpose on his part
to prefer or defraud any of his credi
tors, he shall be deemed a bankrupt
and may be proceeded against in a
court of bankruptcy as hereinafter pro
vided. A creditor or creditors having
debts against, such a bankrupt to the
amount of $500 or more may.within four
months after the act of bankruptcy has
been committed, file in the court of
bankruptcy in the district in which the
bankrupt is, a petition, under oath, set
ting forth, among other things, the
acts of bankruptcy aforesaid, and pray
ing for an adjudication of bankruptcy
against the bankrupt and the distribu
tion of his estate among his creditors."
The court then proceeds within thir
ty days to hear the case. The accused
may demand a jury. On the hearing
the court or jury holds whether the ac
cused is or is not -a bankrupt. The
other proceedings are as in the case of
voluntary bankruptcy. Fees in both
classes of bankruptcy are provided, viz.
attorneys fees not above $100; assignee
not above $3 per day. Appeals are al
lowed except when entire bankrupt es
tate is under $5,000.
IatheCaM Involving Statna of Prfrrd
Stock of thm Baltimore and Ohio 1111
Baltimore, April 22. Argument was
begun this morning in the United
States circuit court In this city In the
suit of the Johns Hopkins university
against the receivers of the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad Company In which
it is sought to establish that the 6 per
cent, dividend on the preferred stock
of the company Is a prior Hen over all
other outstanding obligations. The
total issue of the preferred stock Is $3.
000,000 0f which Johns Hopkins univer-
Fity holds about 11.000.000 and from the
income upon this stock, it Is largely de
pendent for its existence. The conten
tion of the plaintiff is that as this pre
ferred stock was originally issu?d to
the state of Maryland as part of the
educational fund it takes precedence
over all securities Issued thereafter.
The receivers, upon the other hand,
contend that the preferred stock takes
precedence in the nuttter of dividend
over nothing but the common stock and
'that the holders of it get nothing un
less the earnings of the company Jus
tify its payment. The case is to Ik
submitted upon an agreed statement of
fact embodying these points and it is
thought that at least two, and possibly
three davs will be consumed in the
argument. An imposing array of local
legal talent will take part in the dis
cussion aided by James C. Carter, the
eminent corporation lawyvr of New
York; William C Pemming. also of that
city and John C. Johnston, of Phila
delphia. THE PERRIXE LAND GRANTS.
Senator I'ettlgrew'n Minority lteport
Charging Fraud and Collusion
Washington, April 22. Senator Petti
grew, from the committee on public
lands, today filed a minority report on
the result of the investigation of the
Perrine grant in Florida, conducted
during the last session. He takes is
sue with the majority and contends
that it is the duty of congress to de
clare the grant forfeited and of the exe
cutive department to cancel the patents
and punish the offenders. He says that
"no compliance on the part of the Per
rine heirs with the provisions of the
grant has been made, but by fraudu
lent, pretended compliance, patents
have been secured to nearly 23.000 acres
of public domain in fraud of the rights
of the people of the United States, and
without any consideration whatever."
The report also expresses the opinion
that "there is both fraud and mistake
of fact of the officers of the govern
ment in issuing the patents. He says
. .. , .
there are indications of collusion on the
part of the officers of the government
in helping along "this nefarious and
fraudulent transaction." The chief in
terest in the matter is because the I'er
lines are related to ex-President Cleve
land. Discussing the Senate Committee.
Washington, April 22. In executive
session today the subject of the unor
ganized condition of the committees
was discussed at considerable length,
bing brought about by the reports
on nominations which were made.
During the discussion Senator Gor
man took occasion to criticize
the inaction on the republican side and
said it. was not fair to the senate to
prevent it from transacting business.
He reviewed the various propositions
which had been made and said that he
thought they were fair and reasonable.
There was no desire on the part of the
democrats and others in opposition to
the republicans to take the chairmen
ships, but it was desired to place the
senate on a working basis. If the com
mitee which had been selected by the
republicans to arrange the committees
could not agree upon a plan of organi
zation another committee should be ap
pointed. The republicans did not reply to Sen
ator Gorman directly. There was a
general talk upon the matter of com
mitees but no action was taken.
Nominations by the President.
Washington, April 22. The president
today sent to the senate, among other
nominations, the name of Harold M.
Sewall, of Maine, to be envoy
extraordinary and minister plenipoten
tiary of the United States to Hawaii,
and that of Moses N. Harshaw. to be
postmaster at Denoir, N. C.
Harold M. Sewall gained prominence
during the last campaign by reason of
his advocacy of the republican ticket
and platform, although his father, Ar
thur Sewall. was the nominee of the
democrats for vice president. Mr. Sew
all had the indorsement of the Maine
senators for the Hawaiian mission. He
was a democrat until two years ago,
when he became a republican. He is
about 3S years of age and is a graduate
Murderers of Wheelman
Washington, April 22. United States
Consul Bergholz, at Erzeroum, Turkey,
has reported to the state department
that the Turkish court there which has
been trying, by default, the Kurds and
Armenians charged with the murder of
Young Lenz. the American bicyclist,
while on his tour around the world
awheel, has acquitted the accused The
magistrate found that there was not
sufficient evidence to warrant the con
viction of the accused persons and dis
missed the charges, a matter of small
moment after all, considering the fact
that none of the accused had been
found by the authorities, they having
fled the country.
