Indicated by warmth , slight moisture and
Intense , uncontrollable ) Itching In the parts

The usual treatment has beea some simple
ointment or salve , which sometimes gives
temporary relief , but nothing like a perma
nent euro can ho expected from euch super
ficial treatment.
Thu only permanent euro far Itching plies
yet discovered IB the Pyramid Pile Cure ,
not only for Itching piles , but for every other
form of plies , blind , bleeding or protruding.
The llrst application gives Instant relief and
the continued use for a short tlmo causes a
permanent removal of the tumors or the
small parabltrs which cause the Intense lull
ing and dliicomfort of Itching pllm ,
Many physicians for a long time supposed
that the remarkable relief afforded by the
Pyramid Pllo Cure was because It was sup
posed to contain cocaine , opium or similar
drugs , but such U not the case. A recent
careful analysts of tlio remedy showed It to
be absolutely free from any cocaine , opium
or In fact any poisonous , Injurious drugs
For this reason the Pyramid Pile Cure Is
probably the only pile cure extensively rec
ommended by physicians , because It Is BO

Yielding to pressure brought to hear by
the saloon men nnd those who object to hav
ing tlio means whereby to quench their thlrat
on the Sabbath hut off Mayor Jennings yes
terday partially rescinded the order for the
closing of saloons on Sunday. The order
has bocn modlllcd so as to permit ot the
back and side doors being opened , but the
front entrances are to bo kept closed. All
drinking Is to bo done In the back part of
the saloons.
That the present city democratic adminis
tration Is under n , compact to permit the
gambling rooms to keep open In violation
of the law Is generally admitted to bo the
case. For proof of this those who are op
posed to the gambling rooms being allowed
to run point to tlie fact that only Friday
night Immediately after It became known
that the church people were circulating a
petition protesting against the gambling
house a now one \vns opened and is now run
ning full blast on Pearl street. When In
formed of this last evening Mayor Jennings
appeared to bo somewhat surprised , hut de-
cllne-1 to glvo any Information as to what
ho Intended doing. Chief of Police Ulxby
admitted ho was nwaro that the place had
been opened up and was running.
Chief Blxby yesterday took exception to
the statement Hint the gambling houses were
paying a monthly fine or license for being
permitted to keep open. Ho said that such
was not the case and In support of his
statement referred to the blotter at the po
lice station. The entries there show that
the proprietors are nominally placed under
arrest each month for "keeping a disorderly
house , " and a second entry shows that they
are "admitted to ball in the sum of $100 to
appear. " A third entry shows the "money
forfeited by order of court. "

Flluil In Court.
Yesterday afternoon City Assessor Will-
lam D. Hardin filed in the district court his
answer to the petition of the city that a
writ of mandamus be Issued compelling him
to make the assessment for the 1809 tax
levy. Ho lays the whole blame for not
commencing the work of the assessment on
County Auditor Innes' shoulders and says
that ho has been nt all times ready , willing
nnd anxious to proceed with nnd perform
his duties as assessor , but had been pre
vented from doing so iby the failure"nnd
refusal of the county auditor to furnish him
with a plat book ns required by section 1304
of the code of 1807 ; that he has never been
provided with finch plat 'book ' , although ho
has made a written demand upon the county
auditor for It ; that the county auditor , com
plying with the provisions of the code , has
supplied similar plat books to all other as
sessors In the county ; that ho is unable to
proceed with his work until such plat Is
furnished to him , nnd that his failure to
make the assessment is duo to the failure
of the auditor to furnish uch plat book ,
Ho says further that section 1326 of the
code of 1807 , relating to building and loan
associations provides that Immediately after
February 10 of each year tbo county auditor
shall furnish to each assessor In his county
the names of each stockholder In such asso
ciation residing In euch assessor's district ,
together with the number of shares hold by
each person and the actual value of each
sJjare on the first day of January preceding.
Hardin states that the auditor has failed
to do this and that ho cannot proceed with
the assessment without It.
He also sots up that the real and personal
property is listed and assessed on the same
blank and that being the case it Is im
practicable nnd impossible for him to pro
ceed with such [ iBsefumcntB separately.
Any delay , ho says , In making the assess
ment la not caused 'by ' his fault or neglect ,

SIOUX CITY , la. , Feb. IS. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Two Sioux City men have Just hcon
notified that they are heirs to an enormous
estate In the heart of New York City. These
men are Sparhawk Hutchlus nnd Colonel
Charles D. Slantln. They are direct de
scendants of Alexander Montgomery , an ex-
ofllcer of the British army and a lory ot
colonial New York. He owned thirty acres
of land on Manhattan Islnnd , executed
leases on It to various persons and removed
to Canada. There he died and the leases
were In some manner lost. The renters
then continued In possession of the prop
erty nnd the heirs never could get title.
The tract of land in this ownership In
cludes that on the southern portion of .Man
hattan Island , right In the heart of the
present great city , extending from the Bat
tery north to Murray street and from the
East to the North river. The land is now
worth probably hundreds of millions of del
lars. Already the most Important hit of
evidence has been found in the shape of the
original leases. These were accidentally
discovered In the garret of an old house
In Canada , which formerly was the property
of old maid sisters of Montgomery. These
documents now nre In the possession ot
the heirs. Lawyers have found that the
title to this property Is not clear , as there
is no record of a transfer from Alexander
Montgomery to the next holders.

DES MOINES , Feb. IS. ( Special Tele
gram. ) The district court today handed
down a decision in the court house site case.
It holds that the election to select a site for
the new $100,000 court house resulted In
favor of the river front location , but because
of the fact that the statutes do not provide
for the issuance of bonds for the * purchase
of real estate for a county court house Kite
( do election was Illegal , It thus being vir
tually held that the court house must be
built on the old site. There has been a big
row over this matter , the east and west Bides
of the city taking sides against each other ,
and ns the oastslders. who are In favor of
the river front , have determined to appeal
to the supreme court the case Hcems des
tined to become as famous ns the Jones
county calf case , and it Is very doubtful If
the court bouse is built at all for a year
or more.
The State Board of Control returned today
from Knoxvllle , where It went to Investi
gate the charges brought against Superin

they grew out of dissatisfaction on the part
of some who had their salaries cut down by
the lent legislature.

hotel In Chicago , ono of the promoters of the
Southern hotel at St. Louis nnd the West nt. j
