AMERICA FIRST TO ACT.
Recognizes Great Britain's AniMltiSfl
of Boer Republics.
New York. March IS—A special to
The Herald from Washington cays
The United States has given official,
although indirect. recognition to
Great Britain's annexation of the twt» lying in an epileptic fit. J-^e
republics with which it is at war la
South Africa. This recognition is ac
corded in the state department's an
nual review of the commerce or' the
United States with foreign countries,
just issued.
In this publication the republics,
which have previously been known as
the South African Republic and the
Orange Free State, are referred to in
every instance as "the Transvaal" and
"the Orange River Colony." which are
the names Great Britain's annexa
tion proclamation applied to them.
It is explained in a foot note that
the former republics have been an
nexed to Great Britain and that they
are now only colonies of an empire.
The United States is the first power to
recognize the annexation, all other
have had formal notice of it. which
Great Britain has not yet given them.
Boer sympathizers are considerably
wrought up over the fact that the
United States should be the first to
accord the hated and disputed an
nexation.

promise to desist from joint smashing,
but their answers did not satisfy him
ami he lc-t the fine stand. Judge Me
Camish cited many authorities and
held that the fact that anything which
there was no law in Kansas that au

taken.

WORK OF THE COMMISSION.
Judge Taft end Associates Visit Mar
induque Island.
Romblon, Romblon Island, March
19.—The question of attaching the
island of Marinduque to the province
of Tabayas. discussed by the Amer
ican Philippines commission since
their arrival here, has been decided
in the negative. The sentiment of
the people was wholly in favor of
forming a separate province. A pop
ulation of was represented dur
ing the discussions, and the commis
sion has met intelligent delegations
from all the towns on the island.
There arf 3o insurgents still in
the mountains of Marinduque. but
otherwise the inhabitants are anx
ious for the pacification of the island,
and to accept American sovereignty,
.Tud^e Taft has appointed Captain
Bandholtz to be chairman of the va
rious committees of natives formed
to organize municipal law in the
towns of Marinduque. Judge Taft has
promised that the commission will
return and organize the province of
Marinduque.
Major Smith, commanding the
American garrisons on this island,
has issued an order requiring all na
tives to live in the five principal towns
where American troops are stationed.
Those natives who continue to live
in the country will be considered in
surgents.
A few insurgents have recently
been killed or wounded near these
towns and their supplies have been
destroyed. The inhabitants of this
island favor a drastic policy toward
the insurgents.
The American Philippines commis
sion will soon prepare a recommenda
tion to President McKinley on the
charge and form of government to
be established in the archipelago.
The matter has as yet received but
informal consideration.
This port will be the capital of the
newly formed province, composed of
adjacent islands. It is situated at
the month of a deep valley and has
a splendid harbor. The people are
ihrifty and prosperous and there aro
no insurgents here.
Major Evan M. Johnson, Jr., of t.h?
Twenty-ninth volunteer infantry will
be governor and Captain Albert H.
Williams of the same regiment viil
be treasurer of the new province.

MRS. NATION WILL SMASH.
Says She Will Wield Her Hatchet in
Atchison and Leavenworth.
Topeka. Kan.. March 19.—Mrs. Na
tion is growing impatient, and will
start out on a smashing tour this
week. She will first use her hatchet
on Atchison and Leavenworth joints.
"I shall slip over to Atchison some
night when they are not expecting
me." she said, "and smash a couple of
joints before the police know I am
there. After the excitement cools
down I shall take a little run to Leav
enworth. The saloonkeepers of Atchi
son and Leavenworth have threatened
to do me bodily harm, but my expe
rience is that a Kansas jointist is al
ways a coward, and would gnaw out
of a room at sight of me if he couldn't
get out any ouier way. So I don't
expect much trouble when I go to
Atchison and Leavenworth."
Mrs. Nation says she will shortly
start cn a tour of the state.

The question of precedence at dinner
and at social functions at Washington
Is a weighty oue in otlicial circles, but
once upon a time there was a western
senator whose wife thought very light
ly on this subject. She was In Wash
ington for a good time, and she re
solved to have it without bothering
about precedence.
This fearless little woman gave a
dinner on one occasion, and when It
was time to get her guests from the
drawing room into the dining room she
said:
"There is some precedence about all
this, but I don't know what it is. Just
•hoo out to dinner, every one of you,
arid sit down anywhere you please."
This stroke of western diplomacy
worked perfectly.—Exchange*

Do you have a feeling of undue fullness
in the stomach, belchings, or sour or
bitter risings? These are but a few of
the symptoms of the diseased stomach.
The worst thing which can be done
for the stomach in such a case is to take
some tablet or powder which merely
gives temporary relief from discomfort.
The best thing to do is to begin the cure
of the disease by beginning the use of
Dr. Pierce's (iolden Medical Discovery.
It cures diseases of the stomach tnd
other organs of digestion and nutrition.
It makes the "weak" stomach strong,
and puts the body in a condition of
vigorous health.
"I was troubled a long time with dyspepsia,
torpid liver, and constipation," writes Mrs. Julia
K. Deal, ol Ostwalt, Iredell Co., N. C. "Could
scarcely eat .'liivthititf at all would have attacks'
of pain something like colic, and sometimes it
.seemed as though I could not live. I wrote to
I)r. R. V, Pierce, stating my condition, and in a
few days received a kind letter of advice, telling,
me to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov-'
cry. I took four bottles, and one vial of Dr.,
Pierce's Pellets, and now I can cat anything
