We know it cures, absolutely, permanently, when all others fail to do any good whatever.

Kurtz said i bis uioi ning that Hanua's supporters will be sadly surprised when tbe Leg- slature met in joint session at; noon, that certain menho voted for him yesterday Willi not do so today; that Hanna will not be elected. Manner Dick, 'Hanna's right hand man, laughs at Kurtz's statement and says Hanna will rtceive every'vote he got yesterday and perhaps one more. The weak-kneed TTanna men are still in seclusion. It is understood that Hanna agents, who have them in charge, will not bring them to the State house until the latest possible moment. HALL CROWDED EARLY. The Legislative hall was crowded early today. The Hanna workers were up all night and showed weariness. Their opponents seetred bright. There were several collisions in the hotels between opposition workers and the watchmen before breakfast.

A four-vear-old boo of Frank Wallace was hooked in the mouth by a cow, tearing a gash about three inches toward the right ear and then up toward the eye. It is a baa wound, but the attending physician thinks the boy will iecover, THE SAME OLD STORY. Old Folks Objected, But Marriage Was Celebrated. The the Another "gretna green"marriage was celebrated in tbe parlor at Hotel Jones last week Tuesday night, the contracting parties being Miss Eliza Dyer and Mr. Elliot C. Williams, of Martinsville, Va. It was the same old story the old folks objected to the match, but the opposition was "no good." The ceremony was performed in the presence of a few friends by Rev. Dr. Brown. The story goes that the groom is a member of the N. & W's bridge force and was at work near Madison. His tirlianced left borne, telling her parents that she was going to the train to mail a letter. She went, but as the train (a freight.) pulled out, Miss Dyer jump ed on and came to Madison, where Mr. Williams was awaiting her ar rival. He boarded the freight and the two came on to Winston to be united in the bonds of holy wedlock. The groom-elect brought a friend with him to testify before the Register of Dei.ds in order to get the license. Mr. Miller questioned some of the.N. & W. men aud learned that Mr. Wil liams was a high-toned gentleman and that Miss Dyer was old enough, her age being given at 19 years. Mr. Williams and his bride, who is a beautiful woman, left on the 8:30 train nfxt morning forJMartinsville. Their friends are confident that the old people will soon become reconciled and invite daughter and son-in-law to come home and "all will be for given." OKATII OF A GOOO WOMAN. Mrs. J. K. Thornburg Passes Away In Her 58th Year. This most estimable lady, whose ill ness has been recently mentioned in the Sentinel, died at the home of her daughter Mrs. W. C. Wright on Broad street, last week Wednesday evening. Her health bad been feeble for some, but the illness resulting in her death had become alarming to her family and friends only during the past two or three days. Her death, like her life, was gaict and peaceful; and sur rounded by those she loved best, this good woman and dearly beloved mother "Went hoae in the evening, To lind it morning there." Mrs. Janet Evans Thornburg was born in Chatham county, N. C, Aug ust 22d, 1840, and was married at 18 years of age to the late Captain W. L. Thornburg, who was greatly admired and esteemed by all who knew him, and who was for several years the effi cient Treasurer of the North Carolina Railroad Company. Mrs. Thornburg lived in Randolph county for ten years; then in Graham, N. C, and af terwards at Burlington, N. C. Soon after her husband's death in 1879. she moved with her family to Winston, where she has since resided, and where she has won a large circle of friends, who have always been attached to her on account of her noble character, and her tender thoughtfulness and con sideration for others. She had nine children, four of whom are living: Mrs A A Smith, Mrs W C Wright and Mr W Li Thornburg, of this city, and Mrs J A McMillian, of Charlotte, all of whom were present at her bedside; and she left surviving her three sis ters, Mrs Dr Troy, of Amherst, Va, Mrs Jas Bridges, of Hamlet, N C, and mrs j h uuthrie, of Burlington. N C. Gentle, loving, patient, tender and true, she has gone to her reward. leaving behind her as a precious legacy ior ner cnnaren the memory of a de voted Christian mother, "beautiful in good works and blessed charities," and who is enshrined forever in their hearts and homes. The funeral services were con ducted from Centenary M. E. church, of which she was a member, last week Thursday morning, at 10:30 o'clock, by Kev. Dr. Creasy, assisted by Rev. R. E. Caldwell. The following gentlemen acted as pall-bearers: J G Young, E E Gray, W T Carter, L T Bristow, T S Rucker and W S Martin. How the Cases Were Decided. Mr. George Pell attended Guilford Court Thursday, being one of the counsel for Mr. C. R. Call, of this city, ic a suit brought by Ed. Steel, of High Point, over a house and lot at the lat ter place. The case was won by the defendant. From Mr. Pell it is learned that the big fraud suits of Sparger Bros., of Mt. Airy, against Broadnax, of Greens boro, and Broadnax against Sparger Bros , were compromised. In the suit of A H. Motley Tobacco Co., of Reidsville,'against the South ern Finishing Co , of Greensboro, the plaintiff got a verdict of $1,000 for damages to some tobacco. Charged With SteallngMoney. Policeman Poindexter and Con stable Tucker arrested a negro named Eflrd Williams, on Liberty street. last week Thursday morning. The prisoner stands charged with stealing $1 2 in money, a grip sack and some money from Maj. N. G. Hunt, of Yadkin county. He admitted to taking the grin and books but denied stealing the money. The officers, however, found two dollars on him ana a watcn wnicn ne purchased a few days ago. Williams is in jail. He will be sent back to Yadkin for trial What a Republican Thinks About It. "If the Democrats don't carry the Legislature ihis fall I'd like to know why," said a prominent Republican today, "with the party split up oyer postoffices, petty places, etc., while prominent Republican officials are being placed in an embarrasing social position. To say the least, things look blue for ns. Old man Russell, how ever, Is one of the rule or ruin variety and he is doing the latter with a vim. His man Smith as Superintendent of the penitentiary is enough to make decant men sick.1' The Most Important Case. The most important case tried and decided at this term of Guilford court, aays tbe Telegram, was the case of Hendren, guardian, vs. the First National Bank of Winston; E. H. C. Field and J. W. Alspaugb, in which tbe plaintiff recovered a judg ment, for about $2,200, and the fore closure of a mortgage on the land of E. H. C. Field, near High Point. This case was hotly contested by both sides and grew out of some dealings between the bank and Colonel Alspaugb.. FORWARD MOVEMENT. AN EARNEST AND ENTHUSIASTIC GATHERING. Conference of the Several Committees of the Chamber of Commerce. Work Outlined Sir. G. W.HIn shaw Klected President. The new Standing Committees of the Chamber of Commerce held an en thusiastic meeting last Friday night. Every Committee was represented. Plans were discussed which, if acted upon will no doubt be of ma terial benefit to the growth and pros perity of our Twin-City. Secretary Blair explained the obit ct of the meeting to discuss various matters and begin active work in be half of Winston-Salem. On account of the absence of Presi dent J. M. Rogers, Mr. G. W. nin shaw, first Vice-President, was called to the chair, ne stated that there were several matters which need careful consideration and the time for this work is the first of the year. He was conflden'u the Twin-City never had a brighter future before it than now. He referred to the fact that all business houses were occupied and very few residences could be found for rent. "It is now in our power to place ourselves on a through railroad lice," continued Mr. Hiushaw, who added that in about 40 days, if the weather is favorable, the North Carolina Mid land road will be graded to Moores ville with tbe exception, perhaps, of two large cuts. Upon the completion of this road and the tapping of the Air Line there will be a saving of 30 miles to Atlanta and 39 miles to Charlotte. The chairman spoke of the proposed road lrom Reidsville to Keruersville, which would place Winston-Salem on a through line and make the distance 35 miies shor,. jt between Washington and Atlanta. He thought this could be secured if the proper efforts were made. Mr. Hinshaw referred to the proba ble lease of the C. F. & Y. V. road to the Seaboard Air Line. He thought it would be made. RFI'OItTS OF COMMITTEES. The Chairman called for reports of the Committees. The first one being on "Information and Statistics," Mr. Hinshaw stated that this was a very important Committee and that it should get to work at once on a cir cular or hand-book giving a brief his tory of the Twin-City. The informa tion should be accurate. He hoped the whole Chamber would do practical work this year. Thought this com munity was in better shape and that greater prosperity is in store for us than ever before. Chairman Dunn, of this Committee, stated that he was receiving injuries about our towns and section. He thought at least 10,000 or 20,000 circu lars or pamphlets should be printed for advertising and that it would,be a good idea to put in cuts of our public buildings. Mr. W. A. Whitaker thought that after the matter was prepared and the cost cf the printing secured, the Chamber could then tell more about bow many pamphlets to issue. Mr. A. H. Eller addressed the meet ing. He said that for a month or two Mr. Elliott Warren has been conduct ing an extensive correspondence with parties North who wish to come South. He is looking for some people to visit our towns and section in tbe near future. Mr. Eller added that the style of Mr. Warren's enterprise was "The Piedmont Farm Exchange." It is his purpose to get out a pamphlet giving a brief history of this section for the purpose of advertising our Piedmont country. Mr. Eller stated he and Mr. Warren came over to the meeting to see if the Chamber and the Exchange could not co-operate and thereby aid one another in a plan to let the people away from here know what we have. Mr. Warren made a talk in which he said that he believed if our advan tages here were fully described it would result in turning niiny North ern farmers to the South, He thought the South now offers greater induce ments than any other section. He has been receiving letters from New York, Missouri, Maryland, Pennsyl vania, Ohio and other States. Nearly all of the writers speak of locating some where in the South. He be lieved a concerted movement here would result in great good for our section. He hoped to receive the co operation of the Chamber in his ef forts to get people to come here. Mr. Hinshaw then called upon tbe committee to say what they want or can do. Mr. P. H. Hanes spoke encourag ingly of Winston-Salem's future. Be lieved a street railway would be run ning to High Point in a few years.and that the long distance telephone would connect us with all the towns in this and adjoining coun ties. Thought the time was not far distant when tbe farmers will have 'phones in their homes. Mr. C. H. Fogle reported that work in the two towns had improved during tbe ra?t year; that more bouses bad been built than a great many people are aware of. The low cost of motive power, after the completion of the Yadkin river enterprise, cught to give an impetus to manufacturing en terprises here, said Mr. Fogle, who added that he believed we are on tbe eve of prosperity conservative and natural growth. He did not want any more booms. What we need now Is to pull ourselves together, said the speaker. A motion was made - and adopted ttat the matter of advertis ing be referred to Mr. Dunn's Com mittee and that after getting it in definite shape a report be made to the J. B. Vaughn, of the Trade and Transportation Committee, thought tbe town would be benefitted If all the trains would run in here in the morning and leave in tbe evening. He believed a change in the schedule would be necessitated upon the com pletion of the MocKsvuie roaa. For the Committee on Internal Im provements and Immigration, a report was made that said Committee has the matter of the southbound rail way and long distance telephones uo der advertisement. A motion was adopted that the finance committe make an effort to raise funds by private subscription for advertising purposes. One member said he would give $25. Mr. W. B. Pollard, of the member ship committee promised that bis committee would go to work and try to induce those who are not members to join the Chamber. He asked all the memoers to assist the committee in its efforrs to arouse a greater interest in the Chamber and its work. It was the sense of those present that some changes should be made In the constitution. The matter was left in the bands of this committee. It was stated that the Chamber is an io corporatei body. Col. A. B. Gorrell was elected chair man of the committee on Public Roads vice Mr. M. D. Bailey, who said he could not serve. Mr. P. H. Hanes spoke fr the com mittee on "City Park." He thought Winston should have one. It was reported that the special committee is at work looking to the re-establisomentof the D:ivis Military School. St vpral members spoke of the importance of the school beiDg re opened. NEW PRESIDENT. A letter was read from Mr. J. M. Rogers, who was elected President, at. tbe last meeting, asking the Chamber to release him and elect another man. Mis resignation was accepted and Mr. Hinshaw was elected President before he had time to decline. Mr. W. B. Pollard was chosen tlrst vice Presi dent to succeed Mr. Hinshaw. A motion was made and adopted that the committees meet with the Board of Directors every Friday night until the Chamber gets in good work ing order. Another motion was made and adopted that the Secretary have the names of members of the committee and time of meetings on cards. Jnst before adjourning President ninshaw said: ' If you all -will join me we will do some work this year, and we will see a different state of af fairs here." These remarks were well received and Mr. P. II. Hanes said: "I do not t hink we could have selected a better man for President. He's a wheel-horse and 1 regard him the right man, in the right place." RUSSELL'S ANTI MONOPOLY. Col. Andrews, of the Southern, Inter viewed in Salisbury. In an interview with a representa tive of the Salisbury World, Vice President Andrews of the. Southern Riilway made a very interesting statement. He told of an interview with Governor Russell shortly after the latter's inauguration, in which the Governor offered to sell the State's interest in the North Carolina Rail road for two million dollars. Col. Andrews reminded him that there was a tlrst mortgage on the road The Governor said he knew nothing of it. Col. Andrews asked: "How about the private stockholder-?" "The private stockholders bed ," replied the Governor; "If you are fool enough to let them get anything out of you that is your lookout, not mine " THE MORMON KLDERS. Propose Making a House to House Canvass of the City. The two young Mormon Elders who are in the city tell The Sentinel that it is their purpose to make a house to house canvass of the Twin- City, if they can secure permission from the Mayors. Their object in doing this is to meet and get acquainted with the people and to distribute literature which tells what they belieye and teach. The young men insist that they do not make any charge for their preach- ng, therefore they are comoelled to depend upon the goodness of the peo ple for food, raiment and lodging. When they arrived here Monday night they called at Hotel Jones and queried the proprietor about stopping witn him. lie told the young men that he gave ministers half rate and was willing to do the same by them. They informed Mr. Jones that they had no money to pay him. The con versation proceeded until one of the Elders asked the hotel man if he would not allow them to stay all night with him. When informed that he would do that for t hem, one of the young men said: "Well, we will ac cept the bed and go hungry." Ibis touched the hotel mans heart and his generosity was extend ed. Mr. Jones told his "guests" that he would give them supper and lodg ing and his proposition was accepted without further debate. Next morn ing, to the surprise of Mr. Jones, the Klfiers walked into the dining room and nartook of a hearty breakfast. after which they went away. About 1 o'clock yesterday they walked ipt.o the hotel office and called for their grips. It was then that Proprietor Jones asked them if they did not un derstand him to say the night before that he was only willing to give them supper and lodging. Their reply was that they thought he meant breakfast too. Both expressed regret on ac count of the misunderstanding. They again assured the gentleman who had been so kind to them that they had no money. They went away without their dinner, but Mr. Jones is confi dent that they expected to get an other "squire meal" when they step ped in and called for their "baggage." TO ABOLISH HANGING!. Hills to be Introduced in Virginia Legislature. A member of the Virginia Legisla ture is preparing a bill to abolish cap ital punishment. He will introduce it in a few days. He thinks capital punishment is a failure as a preven tive of homicide. It is said that this measure and Mr. Murphy's bill reviv ing tbe whipping-post will both pro voke long and stubborn fights. Mr Murphy thinks he has relieved the old whiDDing-post law of its most se rious objections by exempting fe males and aged persons aad by allow ing appeals. Another bill that has just been reported favorably, which attracts a good deal of attention, is that of Grand Commander Stubbs, au thorizing county wards of supervisor and Citv Councils to make special levies of not. exceeding 4 cents for a local pension fund. Got $15 for His Character. . A Guilford county jury has been doing some vindicating lately. A verdict for $15 dollars was Monday awarded to Walter Lewis, who brought a suit against Moore & McKenzle for injury to his character In having him arrested for the non-payment of a debt. This is the second verdict in his favor at tbe present term of court JUDGEDICKTO RETIRE. THE STEP NECESSITATED BY ILL HEALTH. His Son-ln-Law, Justice Robert 31. Douglass, Hopes to Succeed Him. Winston Lawyers Asked to Kudorse Dougluss. The Sentinel speaks with author ity in saying that Judge Robt. Dick, of the U. S. Federal Court, will soon retire from the beuch. This is neces sitated by his bad health. His son-in-liw, Judge Robt. M. Douglass, Associate Justice of the Supreme C'urt, will prob tbly succeed Judge Dick. Several Wiustou lawyers received letters Friday from Judge Douglass asking them for endorsement as to his character and fitness for the posi tion. . Judge Douglass says his name has been suggested to President McKin- ley as Judge Dice's successor. In his letters Judge Douglass states that Judge Dick's health will necessi tate his early retirement. A gentleman who saw Judge Dick a few days before he left Greensboro for Baltimore, remarked last Friday that he did not believe be would ever return home alive-especially if he undergoes an operatib'i. HK PAII HIS PARK. Governor Russell Tired of the I I'uss Business. Gov Russell went from Raleigh to Wilmington last wtek via Goldsboro. The Messenger says that wheu the conductor was passing through the rain punching tickets, he came across the Governor aud stopped to look at is pass. Govt:rn'r Russell, however, sked the crndu.-t')r what the f ire was. "Why, you've got a piss, haven't .ou, Governor?" said the ticket juncher. "Well. VPS." G.ivprnfir R,w..ll . plied, "but I'm tired of the d n paps uusiuess : (jov. Russell's remark caused a aULru all around, mirl when r.ho con ductor told him what the fare was, he jocularly asked ifithere was any extra charge. As everybody knows, Russell s a large man and he was having some un about his own size. He naid his fare. Looking for Moonshiners. Revenue Officers R sseau and Lewis came down from Wilkes last week aud went over in Davie ou the Mocks ville train in search of blockaders. Occasionally revenue olHcers upf, fooled, but it is not their fault if they do. Now and then some one informs" on distillers government or blockaders, aud occasionally some one "misinforms." A case, for In stance, occurred in Davie county last weeK, wnen omoers were informed of t he whereabouts of two stills. As the . e.ult of the iuformation officers Van. derford, Mebarie and Hunt hid them selves away. Thty travelled forty miles on this trip and fouud two sassafras stills. The Suit Withdrawn. It appears that there Is a npw turn in the case of Mis Abbott against Robert Hancock, at Newbern, Mrs. Abbott, her mother, withdrawing with the statement, that, she is tint, able to push the charges. A kinsman of all the parties has effected this change iu the status, it is siid It, is further said that Miss Abbott does not withdraw her mist sensational cba'ges.

Deafness Cannot Be Cored. by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by conslitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling so and or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and nnless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condi tion, hearing will be destsoyed forever; nine caees out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

He.dtd not think this meant cheap money, but better facili ties for the transaction of business. This, he said, could only be secured by the establishment of such a banking system as will make it possible for the people to get these facilities."
