One of the Results of the Army Board Meeting. Chicago, Feb. 8.—Major General Otis, commanding the department of the Lakes, has returned from Wash ington. where he was in attendance on th«- sessions of the army post board called by the secretary of war to con sider the deeds of the different army posts. As to the recommendations of the board General Otis f-ald it would not be proper to speak in advance of the report to t!i» .secretary of war. It is understood, however, says The Chron icle. that th'1 barracks at Fort Sheri dan will be enlarged and made modern In every respect.

The state depaitment has made perfectly clear to Russia its purpose to retain what ever trade advantages it has in Man churia and its determined attitude in that matter probably has prevented the summary closing of Manchurian ports to any but Russian trade. The questions now involved, namely those relating to mining concessions r.nd the light to construct railroads in Man churia, are regarded as only secondary in importance to the question of the "open door" and whereby diplomatic representatives are acting under con servative but tirni instructions on those points. ^•otips are required for work abroad.: that the posts throughout the country have 6 3 Work .ring appetizing and rnc food is lightened by nous baking powder Ligflt Biscuit Delicious Cake Dainty Pastries Fine Paddings Absolutely pure.

BRIEF IS FILED ATTORNEYS FOR ADMIRAL SAN SON PROTEST AGAINST THE SCHLEY APPEAL. IS SUBMITTED TO PRESIDENT Assert That the Question of Command During the Battle of Santiago Was Not Before the Court of Inquiry ancf That They Were Repeatedly Denied Opportunity to Present Important Evidence Bearing on That Point "Washinrton Feb. S.—E. A. Theall, representing Stayton. Campbell & Theall, counsel for Rear Admiral Sampson, have filed the following brief with President Roosevelt protest ing against the claim set up in Admir al Schley's appeal that he was iu su premo command in the battle off San tiago "We beg leave as attorneys for Rear Admiral W. T. Sanusoti and on his behalf to submit the following state ment in connection with the petition of Rear Admiral W. S. Schley asking rtliel" from his condemnation as re ported by a court of inquiry and ap proved by the secretaiv of the navy. No argument will be submitted as to the voluntary opinion of the presid ing officer of the court as to the ques tion of chief command at Santiago. "We repeatedly applied for an op portunity to present evidence upon this point to the court and our request was as often refused and we are con fident that an attempt to pronounce nil adverse judgment where a hearing has been denied is so plain a violation of simple good faith that it has no chance of receiving your approval. We were ready then, and are still ready, to produce much evidence which was not offered before the court on this question. We are prepared to fchow that the statement that the New York at the beginning of the battle was "out of sight of each and every ship of the blockading squadron, but one," is inaccurate. "There is abundant testimony to show that from the beginning of the battle every American vessel at San tiago was In Sight of the New York. There is evidence at hand to show that when the commander-in-chief left the blockading fleet in front of Santiago he hoisted the signal "disregard move ments of the commander-in-chief.' pro ceeded to that point where, under the regulations his immediate command of the squadron ceased, and then sig nalled to the next in rank to take com mand and that on the morning of July 3 the commander-in-chief had given instructions to have ready stringed the signal directing Commodore Schley to assume command, that this signal was to be hoisted when under the regula tions the appropriate moment arrived, that that moment had not arrived and that such signal had not been hoisted when the enemy endeavored to escape from the harbor. "From the Oregon too. there Is avail able evidence to show that when the first Spanish ship issued from the har bor the Oregon, using a long glass, could from the position of that vessel near the center of the line, read the New York's battle signal then flying. "Jnl this evidence was ready to be submitted to the court of inquiry and is now ready to be submitted to you. It was refused by the court, but it had decided not to go into the subject of the command. Rear Admiral Sampson has never objected and does not now object to any inquiry to determine the question of command. He has, how ever. reported that he was in com mand at that battle. As commander in-chief he has made his recommenda tions concerning the promotions. He SLOWLY GROWING WORSE. No Decided Change in Admiral Samp son's Condition. Washington Feb. X.—Alarming ru mors wore afloat here during the day to the effect that Admiral Sampson had #ken a serious turn for the worse* within the last 21 hours. Inquiries at the Sampson residence and of the na val physicians developed there had been no decided change in Admiral Sampson's condition, but that steady retrogade movement is in progress Which is common to his disease. has been recognized by the executive ciinkas, who killed the Hritish officers and judicial departments of the gov eminent as being in command and he asks that when the accuracy of his re ports is questioned he be at least per mitted to hear the evidence in opposi tion and to permit his brother officers to come forwarti with the testimony they are ready to give in his behalf."

It Is von* con. vcn.ent to attribute the disasters which mt iUkr us to fate. Hut lor the mo«.t part man is the a:' :er of his own fortunes. Business men are struck down suddenly as bv lightning. The verdict is generally "heart failure.'* "His heart was weak. It was fate for him to meet tins eiul." But if we went lt-hind the "weak heart we should find a "weak stomach, |rol ably, and back of the weak stomach u careless eating at irregular hours. When the stomach is diseased the organ* dej»ending on the stomach lor nutrition are starved. Starvation means weakness of the lx*dv and its organs. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery i-ures diseases of the stomach and th-r organs of digestion and nutrition. Win :i these organs are cured, diseases of heatt. lungs and kidneys, caused by the disea.-ed stomach, are cured also. "In th^ fall of |S,» I wa« t.iV.cn with wnnt Vr- inp Vjit-ll*.
