port to the Piesidcnt The receipts of the
Postoffice Department for the year end
ing Juuc 80 1895 were 70171090 and the
expenditures S070172 It is gratifying
says the report that a large proportion of
the deficiency occurred in the first quarter
of the year and that revenues arc increas
ing with returning prosperilj
The Postmaster General refers to the
free delivery service and sajs
I helieve it is good policy for Congress
and for this department to foster the ex
tension of this service by judicious ap
propriations and iiuiieious administration
The vigorous and effective efforts of
my immediate predecessor seem to have
produced at last an honest administration
of the eight hour law and in ado letter car
riers trip and official time reports actual
and truthful records of service To bring
ahout this substantial reform just alike to
the department and to the carriers as well
as to lay the foundation for other neces
sary improvements in this service a spe
cial investigation of the carrier system
was begun under his administration in
volving a thorough examination into the
needs and details of the service
Ho concurs in the recommendations ol
the first assistant Postmaster general for
promoting theefileeney of the work Con
cerning the abuses of second class mail
matter Mr Wilson says
I can add little to the reasons given by
Postmaster General Bissell and Postmas
ter General Wanamaker for amendments
to the laws as to second class matter im
peratively needed to save the postal serv
ice from the enormous ahuses and conse
quent enormous loss of revenue which no
regulation of the department or watchful
ness on the part of the officials can guard
against I respectfully and earnestly
recommend to Congress a caieful scrutiny
into this abuse and such remedial legisla
tion as shall be deemed necessary and ef
fective for its correction

tncle Sams ClaLms in Regard to
Alaska Boundary Wrong-
Washington special The United States
has been compelled to abandon its conten
tion as to the exact location of the 141st
meridian between Mt St Elias and the
Arctic Ocean
When the nresent nil ief of the bureautr
Gen W W Duffield was installed he
found in the employ of the service Mr Mc
Grath a surveyor Mr McGrath had
been assigned to the duty of running the
line of the 141st meridian which was the
boundary line always recognized Mr
McGrath had completed his field work
but had not worked out his notes when
lie was dismissed That portion of the
work was given to other men in the office
In the meantime a Canadian engineei
hadsurveyedthe meridian and establishec
the Canadian line seven and three -tenths
miles to the westward of the presumed
line of McGrath The boundary accord
ing to this Canadian authority was wes
af the mining settlement known as Forty
Mile This town is at the junction o
Forty Mile Creek with the Yukon River
ind it promises to be of extreme import
mice with the opening of spring No one
could understand how it could be that the
surveyors were so wide apart as although
they worked with chronometers and sex
tants and without the aid of the definite
survey of the coast it was declared that
they ought not to be more than 100 feet
apart
McGrath was sent for He went ovei
his own notes and proved that his line
and that located by the Canadian engineer
are in reality only twenty two feet apart
and now the Canadian survey is acknowl
edged to be approximately correct This
means apparently that thei Mist meridan
or the main east and west boundary line
of Alaska north of Mt St Elias has been
definitely determined The decision
leaves the town of Forty Mile in British
territory
The question of the location of the
southeastern boundary is still in abeyance
and it continues to give the administration
a great deal of trouble especially as the
British insist that the city of Juneau in
cluding the United States custom house
is within their territory

Bonacum of Lincoln held personally con
ducted Catholic services at Tecumseh
Sunday His services were held at the
Seaver Opera nouse and in the presence
of a congregation of less than forty
In fact there were but fourteen members
of the Tecumseh church in attendance

phy of that city and Fitzgerald of Auburn
were aired These clergymen were
toasted to a queens taste for the disre
spect the bishop claims that they are show
ing their superior in the church their ex
pulsion from the diocese was affirmed and
they were excommunicated from the
church The bishop then installed in that
charge Rev J C Carraher of Lincoln
Services for next Sunday were announced
to be held at the opera house and a trus
tees meeting of the local organization
will be held at the home of the priest in

Father William Murphy held services at
St Andrews Church at the usual hour
and so vast was the throng of church
members and citizens that turned out to
hear the reverend gentleman that stand
ing room in the commodious house of wor
ship was at a premium Many were
turned away from the doors unable to
gain admission Father Murphy expressed
iis pleasure at being honored on the oc
casion witii such a magnificent congrega
tion and entered in detail into the trouble
that is existing betwen the bishop and
himself Many important letters in refer
ence to the case were read He claimed
that the bishop had brought this scandal
upon the church solely from the fact that
Fitzgerald and himself refused to extort
certain large sums of money from their
parishoners to he used in furthering the
bishops comforts of life In concluding
Father Murphy expressed the hope that
the members of the congregation would
not form any opinion in the case either
pro or con until the evidence on both sides
had been carefully weighed and the mat
ter given a hearing before the proper
church authorities if the verdict of that
tribunal shall be favorable to the opposi
tion he will willingly step down and out
without further controversy In ihe
meantime as the duly authorized pastor of
this charge he will conduct the customary
services at the church

It was here that a representative of the
Republican Register found Mrs Rhoda
Talcott SI years of age who told him in
the presence of her grateful daughter
Mrs E Sloan the following story which
is given as ueurly as possible in her own
language
Yes it is with great pleasure that I
can give my testimony to the great value
of Dr Williams Pink Pilla Over thirty
years ago I was taken with a chill and
erysipelas set in For sixteen weeks I
was not able to walk a step The phy
sicians proposed to take on one of my
limbs but finally decided not to do so It
mortified in spots which hnd to be cut or
burrit out After I wan able to get about
with the ude of crutches every two or
three months erysipelas would set i
again and I suffered intensely from it i
had a good many different doctors Dr
Fitch of Sheridan Iowa Dr Brown of
Chamite Kansas Dr Scarft of Burling
ton Iowa Dr Trembly of Oakland Cali
fornia Dr Searle of Galesburg Illi
nois and a doctor in Kansas Ciy but ob
tained no relief and after treatment from
all those physicians instead of getting
better began to get very much worse
The other limb broke out in two placea
with sores about the size of a silver dol
lar I could not sleep nights without the
aid of morphine My limbs were so bad
ly swollen that I could not put oil my
shoes or walk a step without either hav
ing on a heavy bandage or a silk or rub
ber stocking About a year ago I read of
and was told by a neighbor about Dr
Williams Pink Pills I concluded ns a
last resort to try them as I felt certain
I could find no other relief From the
very first after I commenced to use the
pills I began to improve and since that
time I have not been troubled at all I
would not hnve done without the Pink
Pills for anything as they have most cer
tainly prolonged my life My general
health is much better than it has been
for a good many years and I am now SI
years of age Have not only used the
Pink Pills with success but have recom
mended thc m to my friends whom I
thought needed such treatment aud sev
eral have tried them and found relief
Mrs Sloan said that just before com
mencing to use the Pink Pills she
thought her mother could live hut a very
short time and was most agreeably sur
prised after she had taken the pills
Mrs Talcott has made her home with
her daughter for five or six years and she
can most cheerfully certify to the benefit
her mother has derived from the use of
the medicine
The reporter also called on Mr George
Kelly the son of one of the prominent
hardware dealers in Biggsville who has
used Pink Pills He was troubled
with pains in the stomach and back and
from the very first he commenced to
got better and now he is not troubled at
all

A queer incident took place yesterday
in tne oince of one of the natural gas
companies A seedy looking and poor
ly dressed man entered the office and
asked for the president The clerk
whom he addressed had been annoyed
more than usual of Into by beggars
and tramps and replied brusquely
Well he dont want to see you so
clear out unless you have some bust up
here and if you have you can transact
it with me
All right I can deal with you I did
want to refer The
president to a cus
tomer who is desirous of taking some
stock in a new enterprise he is about to
embark In But I can sou him at an
other time when he is not so carefully
guarded by such zealous subordinates
I will pay the gas bill for mv North
Meridian street house however and I
suppose you will be good enough to
take my money
The clerks eyes bulged until thev
were in danger of dropping from their
position when he was handed from a
well filled wallet a hundred dollar bill
to change in payment of a good sized
monthly account He had been dealing -with
one of the citys most prominent
and prosperous workingmen who did
not see it necessary to cease his man
ual labor because he had accumulated
a fair proportion of wealth Indianap

A Skato Bicycle
And now here comes a man out of
the wild and woolly West who says
we may ride our wheels all winter if
we wish Yea not only this but ride
faster than ever if we will This is a
matter that will cut considerable ico
with many devotees of wheeling
Ing the coming winter months The
bicycle has always heretofore been con-
sidered erratic and drunken enough In
Its movements to more than satisfy
aiost riders and particularly new begin-
ners but this man audaciously proposes
to give it a skate It is all very simple
lou have only to remove the front
wheel from Its forks substitute the
skate in its place take the tire from
the rear wheel put the Ice tire thereon
and there you are This attachment was-
experimented with last winter on Lake
Michigan and it is claimed a record
of one quarter of a mile In 20 seconds
was established with it The possibili
ties of century runs up the Hudson
ice bicycle races and races between ice
bicycles and iceboats open up a new
and most attractive vista in the field
of sports
