I.oniion, July 26.— Dr. Godfrey Ilamblo tou professes to have discovered a method by which consumption can be prevented »nd even cured in cases where the disensn is not tro extensive. He asserts that he has cured nir.ny patients in a private establish ment nf !iis own since 1886, and he is now anxious for a public test. He recently wrote to Lord Salisbuiy asking for facilities, and received a chilling reply to the effect that the Prime >lini>ter had no power to :.fford them. Tlie Gazette, the le.idine military newspaper, announces that he has been forced to the conclusion that it is useless to endeavor tj obtain an investigation by the l![.ti!.h Government, and that he will now place Hie facts befoie another power. The Gazette vouches for Dr. B ambleton's good faith, and demands an official investigation with a view to the application of this great discovery. It is understood that Dr. Hain bleton is about to approach the United States Government ou the subject. The editor of the Gazette declares that he has seen notes of well-esUbli-hed and |ierma nent cures of consumption, of some nf which he has personal knowledge. "In /act," he says, "such a muss of practical evidence has been collected that we have not to deal with a prima facie case, but with a case that has been proved ui> to the hilt. The prevention and cure of consumption is an aceoiuyiished fact" IS IT A SWINDLE? An English Syndicate Bays a Mine That Has Been Salted. London.

They made an enthusiastic report. A year ago the man who sold the mine to the English com pany had a row in New Mexico with his partner and was shot dead. A couple of months ago a gentleman in terested in the. company sent an American expert Worn ble of San Francises, to exam ine the property ami report. Womble re turned live weeks ago and declared the ore of the dump-, to be of good quality on the surface, but rubbish underneath.

Douglass, one of the commit tecmeu in choree of the Cincinnati, Hamil ton and Dayton excursion to Woodsdale, tells this story of the Saturday night wreck: A draw-bar about the midJle of the excur sion train broke, and they stopped at Mid dletowu half an hour to patch it up. lied lights were not promptly placed on the rear car, and just as the train was pulling out, a heavy freight came in at a high rate of speed. Engineer Schwind saw a flagman waving the danger signal and immediately called for brakes, shut (iff steam, and with the fireman jumped. It was too late to stop the freight. An instant later the crash came. Ihe two rear cars of the excursion train were hurled into a ditch. The next coach was struck fairly in the end, and the locomotive poshing under elevated it to an angle of forty-five degrees, and there it stood, tilled with shrieking people. Tliecarcaught fir.-, but Engineer brhwind and- his lire man were able to extinguish the blaze by the use of ho-e from the locomotive*. Two cars lay crushed in the ditch with a mass of maimed and mangled people moaning in agony and pleading for help. liescuers set to woikjitonce toY- tricate them. Legs, arms and heads could be seen through broken windows, or pinned under the wreck. The moans of the helpless s-ufferers wer<) mingled with frantic cries of mothers seek ing husbands and children. Many of them had been cut by glass and timbers In the rush to escape, and their blnodv f-tee-t and bands bore ghastly testimony to the great number injured. Physicians and citizens of Middletown were soon at the scene to join in re-cuing the unfortunates. The terror stricken excursionists were made comfort able in house?. The three dead persons were properly cared for. and the injured re ceived all necessary attention. THE BOTTOM XOtJCHBD. President Pellegrini Expresses His Views on the Situation. Ni:w Yohk, July 26. -A late mail from the Argentine liepublic brings a letter from President Pellegrini to the Chamber of Com merce on financial topics. The chamber had proposed a Beries of radical measures to be adopted by the Argentine Government in releasing the country from the state of paralysis which has tollowed the collapse of its credit in Europe. The President takes up the sugge^i.ns one by one and shows that all the proposals have already been acted upon as far as practicable. A review ol the Government's policy brings into clcnr light the bankruptcy of the country and the magnitude of tne financial reverses which have been caused by speculative recklessness and mismanagement. On the part of the Government it appears that the Interne payments on the national detit have been suspended, with the exception of the loan of '80, on which the collections of revenue were guaranteed to extend to $310,000 n mouth. This is the only interest payment which is now made, anil it is required by the conditions of the loan. All public works involving aid from the national Treasury have been suspended for nearly two years, excepting those subjected to the requirements of special contracts, like the harbor improvements at Buenos Ayrea and a few railroads in the interior, and even tins • are to be brought to an end as soon as possible. The bjilget of expendi tures has been reduced by the discharge, of 100 officials in the civil service, over 1300 employes havine been turned out during the las-t lew mouths. Pellegrini's main ground for hopefulness is a conviction that the bottom has been touched, and toat as there can be no lower depths it is reasonable, to look for indications of revival aud improve ments. ♦- Will the Gold Come Back ! Nkw York, July 2G.— Many financiers arc wondering whether the unusually short crops abroad and the necessity of buying an extraordinary quantity of breadstuff* from this country, will have the effect of bring ing back the greater port of the gold sent abroad. President Simmons of the Fourth National Hank says: "I think tjiat the enuse of the present financial depression may be Attributed to over speculation in Europe, which culminated in the finan cial embarrassment of the Barings, with a large crop and a foreign demand I see no reason why we should cot expect a general Improvement in our financial and commercial condition. I look for a return of a very considerable part of the gold we have shipped." President Cannon of the Chase National Bank says: "The condition of the money market and the business outlook In the United States at this time would undoubted ly be considered very mtisfactory were it not for the continued liquidation and financial disturbance abroad. It Is probable that in spite of the feeling on the part of many that the money market this autumn may be active, and the stringent conditions may change and the crop movement may be m«de. with less difficulty than for several years. It appears thai business and the financial outlook is- favorable rather than otherwise. Other bankers and merchants express similar views." Governor Boies' Letter of Acceptance.

Channcey Depew Interviewed in London. Harrison and Cleveland to Be the Next Presidential Candidates. Success of the Republicans Predicted— The HcKinley Bill and the Silver Question. Position of the Two Parties. ' F; • r : :. Ito The Mokninto CAOt. London, July 2a— An interview with Chauncey M. Depew was published in a London paper on Sunday nurning. Depew deprecated the suggestion that he was likely to be the man to champion : the Republican cause in the next Presidential election in the United States. lie said lie believed Harrison would curry the election as the Republican candidate. "Mr. lilaine," he continued, "is the strongest man politically, and most popular, but still, In my belief, Harrison will be re.nominated. That is my decided opinion, no matter what candidates other than Harrison may be spoken about." When asked who the Democrats were likely to nominate, Depew said he belived Cleveland was the most likely' candidate, but that the Democrats would not be as unanimous for Cleveland as the Republi cans would be for their candidate. Bad times, Depew said, would disappear under the assured prosperity of the farmers. The McKinley tariff will do a very (treat deal to carry the election for the Republicans. Es pecially will the reciprocity clause do a great deal. Harrison would win on the tariff and silver questions. Certainly the Republicans erred in passing the McKinley bill just before an election. The worst ef fects of the bill were felt at once, just in lime to cause a Republican defeat. But it was not a Democratic majority, but a ma jority of Democrats and cranks. American politics were very mixed just then. Now they are clarifying and the benefit* of the MeKinley law are becoming felt. As an illustration the J-'.irniero' Alliance is an out- Come. " Then I am to understand the Republi cans will stand strongly by the tariff ques tion?" "Certainly. Toil will ask me what pro gramme Democrats are to oppose to us. On this point they will advocate a modified form of tree, trade; tariff for revenue, not protection, sufficient tariff to keep the, Gov ernment going without any reg'ird for safe guarding American industries. Now let me puss to what will be the second plank in the fight for the Presidency. I mean the silver question, or bimetallism, as you would call it in England. Upon the silver question the Republicans are practically unanimous, while the Democrat* aro di vided among themselves. •' What will bo the Republicans' pro posals? Shortly, that we shall ci in only silver produced in America, By this menus we should keep ourselves on a gold biisis, whirl) id the standard basis of the world. The Democrats will propose to coin all the silver, not only what is produced in America but also what comes Into the country. They would make silver equal to gold, which we Republicans say would ultimately cause confusion, and bankruptcy. The Democrats say it would mean the improvement of trade i»uii the condition of the people, since there would be a freer circulation of currency." "One last question, Mr. Depew. not con nected with American politics, but exceed ingly interesting to the commercial people of England, why have American railroad stocok Iwen going down recently on the block Exchange?" "1 can't explain that in a sentence. The trend downward is merely temporary. We have sent $7:\000,000 of gold to Europe within the past few months, and money went West to move crops. Consequently, ther.) lesulted a stringency of gold in New York. Whenever that occurs rails go down. Now pood crops are assured, gold is return ing, mid American railroad . storks will shortly bo better than ever before." A MOTHER'S LOVE.

An old lady ol 70 who lives on Long Island cut off her son with a few shillings for the very same reason. This young man consumes ten packages of cigarettes a day.

An Attempt to Resurrect It— The District Attorney to Be Arrested. TnucKEE, July 26.— Truckee is greatly excited over a clandestine attempt to ex hume the body of Michael Lenahan, which was made before daylight this morning. Lenahan died on the Bth of July from wounds inflicted by Malcolm McDougald. lie had pursued JUeDougald with two pistols, which were taken away from him. Entering McDougala's saloon the third time, he was beaten on the head with a pistol. Two days later he died. A small punctured wound in the outer skull, about the size of the hammer of a pistol, was found on removing the scalp. The Coroner's jury were satisfied that this wound produced death, and, therefore, did not open the skull. - At the preliminary examination Dr. Cur tess testified that lie treated Lenahan during the last thirty hours of his illness for delirium tremens. That he saw the wound in the skull after the scalp was removed, and did not believe that it had caused death. The examination progressed four days, and by consent was postponed last Tuesday for one week. Last niaht Dr. Curtess, claim ing to act by order of District Attorney Nilon, directed two grave-diggers to have Lenahan's body exhumed by 4 o'clock this morning. The Qtmo»t secrecy was pre served, and the defense was not notified to be preterit. The arrangement was to hold a secret autopsy at the grave. Before day light the crave-diggers proceeded to the Catholic cemetery with shovels aud a can containing disinfectaut solutions. Dr. Curtess has a sore hand, which he carries in a sling, therefore he could not do the dissecting. He accordingly secured the assistance of a butcher, who carried a meat saw. By some accident John Burdette learned of the proceeding and followed the party to the grave-yard and threatened to kill the first n:an who touched tlie grave. Tliis ended matters. The community is outiaged over the infamous attempt, and all panics connected with the affair will b« arrested, including the District Attorney, unless it can be shown tliat he had legal authority for his action.
