THE CHICAGO TIH35UXE: SUXDATT, DECEMBER 4 898. 5 PROSPECTS OF PEACE TREATY. Republican Leaders May Not Press for Ratification for Some Time. XO INJURY IN DELAY. Members of Congress Give Their Views on Extra Session Question. HEALTH OF THE SOLDIERS. WASHINGTON BUREAU CHICAGO TRIBUNEi, Washington, D. C. Dec. 3. S According to the partly formed plans of TJermblican leaders in the Senate the Management cf Peace Treaty in. the Senate. tantes of the week. There were forty guest present, the majority being those who were' presented this and last season. Representative Skinner of North Caro lina, a Populist, says he believes the Nicaragua Canal should be constructed, owned, and managed by this government alone. Reports from the recruiting officers of the regular army show the result of enlistment during the last month. Reports of the Recruiting Officers. S p a n i s h-American treaty will not come up for discussion until late in the session, If at all, unless there Is a general demand for Immediate action f such a character as jo prevent long-wlndel speeches and possible filibustering. The latest reports from Pans seem to rhatA that the treaty will not be in shape for actual submission to the Senate until after the holidays. It is necessary at the hort session quite as much as at the long jneetings of Congress to pass" the annual appropriation bills, which provide money to Vim the e-oveniment, for otherwise there will ,o. a state of chaos, after July 1.

Fail ure of the treaty, however, does not in any wV Tw-ftssitate a special session of the Jlouse, which has nothing to do with ratifi The appropriation! bills this year will be jnade the medium of a large amount of miscellaneous legislation resulting from the war especially in the direction of providing for the temporary govern men i, immaiy ji -otherwise, of the conquered islands. This fact taken In connection with the manifest Tif-ed of the tmssage of the necessary hwa to complete the annexation of "ifaraii. have led the members of the Foreign committee of the Senate to the determination that the peace treaty must not be allowed to become the means of forcing a special session of both branches of Congress. It ds the purpose, therefore, to hold the treaty in the Foreign Relations committee for a length of time, which will depend upon the general temper of the Senate. If the opponents of ratification avow their purpose of making1 long speeches and instituting a vigorous fight, the Republican leaders will keep the treaty out of the way until the appropriation bills and the Hawaiian annexation are disposed of.' It takes two-thirds of the Senate to ratify a treaty, and It Is. admitted on all sides that it will be a close shave during the present session. The traditions of the Senate will bs invoked, of course, to secure a secret session, as usual, and a comparatively small number of men, or even one obstinate Senator, can block progress during- an executive session without going on record in any official way. It will be remembered that the Hawaiian treaty ltsel could not be ratified in the Senate more because of opposition by the minority than from lack of votes. As the Republicans will have over fifty Senators In the next Congress, and as the treaty of peace itself Is expected to provide specifically for the assumption of authority' Jn the conquered island? by the United States pending ratification, there seems to be, in the minds of the leaders, no great danger in delaying action until necessary legislation is out of the way. If, on the other hand, the opponents of ratification dwipdle down) to a comparatively small number and agree not to display any pernicious activity, the treaty will be put upon its passage aadi rushed through as rapidly as possible. The administration forces are confident that they could carry the treaty through on a straight vote, where each man will go on record officially as for or against a general treatyof peace; but, under the executive session idea, they admit their inability to pass the treaty except at the sacrifice of ordinary legislation, andi the consequent necessity of an extra session, which woulti open up the whole question of the currency, pooling bills', beer taxes', and similar subjeetsv which it is generally hoped will rot be taken up until the regular session next winter. Under the general re cruiting service at city stations there were 1,'JS2 enlistments and 7.270 rejec tions. The largest number of enlistments was at New York City. ao4: there were 143 at Boston. 158 at Philadelphia. 117 at Balti more, and 133 at Chicago. In the special re cruiting service the largest number of recruits was obtained for the Second Artillery at uoston. Providence, R. I., and' Worcester, Mass., where 184 enlistments were made. The next best showing was in the Fifteenth Infantry, for which 102 recruits were obtained, at St. Louis and Kansas City. The special recruiting service yielded 2."K men, and the general recruiting service at military posts and in the field furnished C6S recruits. This makes a total of nearly 4,000 men Jn one month. This result is gratifying to the army authorities, who have had some doubts about the willingness of young men to enter the service. On the other hand, it is known that the requirements which served to furnish such good men in the past have been practically ignored by recruiting officers who have been anxious to secure men for the ranks at all hazards. The rejections have been such as under no circumstances would be accepted, and it is suspected that many of the recruits would in oth?r times have been rejected. With the mustering out of additional volunteer regiments it is expected that' there will, be available better men who had a taste cf army life and are willing to enter it.

"I do not believe the difficulty of the situation in dealing with the Philippine question," said) Representative Brucker of Mich igan, " will be as great as many people now anticipate, t That matter will be adjusted deliberately and no serious disturbance of our affairs will result." " Currency reform legislation will be taken tip at the proper time," said Representative Mercer of Nebraska this afternoon, and It will be Impossible to tell until about Jan. '1 whether any thing will be done in this direction at this session. An extra ses sion of Congress may be imperative because there is considerable important business to be transacted by this Congress, and it will be absolutely necessary to increase the regu lar army. There seems to be a disposition in some quarters to antagonize legislation or this cnaracter. and if the Democratic ob structionists are successful in staving it off an extra session will in all probability be . called. There will not be any difficulty in getting measures through the House, but the hitch may come In the Senate, where the wivmtcs hold the balance of power. ui:e people of my section of the country are . happy over the success of the big exposition and are now engaged in the satisfactory work of paying dividends on their invest ment." wrmany's exports for 1S'J show an in crease of $2,04V,47G over the previous year. - out the trade conditions now so peculiar in the United States do not hold good, for the empire also imoorted Sil .747,434 more for ISM than 1S'.HV the increase in imports thus being nearly twice as much as the addition w the export trade.

The stories grew out of the recommendations made by Assistant Postmaster General Heath that a number of the smaller offices be cons,olidaed with the larger ones. While Mr. Heath does recommend the consolidation of some of the smaller offices under certain circumstances, he had special reference to New York City and Brooklyn, where he claims the service would be greatly benefited by such a course. The conditions prevailing at Chicago are altogether different from those at New York, and it would be almost impossi ble to consolidate Evanston, Oak Park, and Austin. Mr. Heath says that the consolida tion of the smaller offices can only take place where the free delivery system can be practically extended from the main offices or from stations to be covered. Dy tne territory absorbed. There is no intention at the pres ent time at least of consolidating these three offices or to change their status in any way Captain H.

It will be impossible to legislate on the subject of finance this winter," said Repre sentative J-inus or Linds TJrsres Indiana, " and for this r, reason I am In favor x.miiruv.jr of &R extrA session Legislation. The business-men of the country want stable currency system established, and think they should have it. They expected lecislation of this character during thi Congress, but in view of the fact that the Senate was not controlled by the Republic ans it was impossible to take any action In that direction. Now that the Republicans have control of both Houses in the next Congress by a good majorit y, we should have an extra session and enact a currency law which will stand the strain of any visitation of Democracy that may afflict the country In the future. The financial system we now have is all right as long as the Republicans are in power, but it is not safe against the Democrats' should they happen to get control of the government. We need a currency sys tem which will hold good unaer jjemocrauc as well as Republican control.

It has only been discharged frtwn transport service for the government atnl is fresh from Roach's yard, where It received a thorough overhauling, including, it is said, new steam plpea and boilers. It was scheduled to sail at 1 :30 p. m. today for Galveston, via Key West, but was detained in order to place on board an unusual quantity of Avight. It carried thirty pasMengers. At the time of the su-cident the ship had cast off its lints and the tugboat President had1 its line taut to assist the Alamo into midstream. Its engirvus had mate but two or three revolutions irhen the explosion came. It gave forth a report that was heard all through South and Water streets, and the force of it sent a shock aaid a shiver throughout the length of the stes mi?hip. The flooring of the deck immediately over the engine-room M as torn into spliuters, and the steam poured up through the open seams in clouds. The sound of the escaping steam was mingled with the shrieks of the dying men who were enveloped in it. Captain Hix and Chief .Engineer Cornell hastened to the rescue of their men. The flow of steam was checked with great difficulty and not until the laiwe of five or six minutes. Then it was found that it had completely filled the engine-room and fin-room, and that all who had been confined thare had been not only parboiled but suffocated by it. There was no sign of life left in one of the bodies, and in peveral instances the slrin had peeled off from their hands and faces. The second engineer was found close to the break in a position which showed he had tried to shut off the steam at tho boiler when the accident occurred and hal died in the attempt. Two of the firemen were flrvumd gripped in each other's arms at the foot of the ladder leading from the fire hole. The manner in which Passenger John Stoneman was injured could not Ue learned. The Mallory line agent refused to give any information concerning the accWent. The gates of the pier were locked up and guarded by a watchman, who gruffly realised admittance to all comers. " You can't get in here," he saM to a reporter. ' It's my orders not to admit anyone." From the string piece at the end of the pier the reporter held a conversation with a young man wno was a passenger on ma ship. " We were just leaving the pier," he said, " when there was a loud explosion that shook the ship and frightened all the passengers out on deck. There was not a ianic, as we were so close to the pier and dil not fear sinking. We saw that the deck had been torn up and that the steam was coming up in a hissing cloud, and for a moment we could hear the stifled cries of the man be low. ' The ship's officers kept us all back from the ecene and . assured us that there was no danger, and all our fear was turned to pity for the men we believed were perishuig below. It was awful to be obliged to stand still and do nothing to aid them." Thomas A. Mclntyre, " the great com biner," as he is known In Wall street, is coming back from ' England on the steamer Majestic, which is due on Wednesday next. It Is said with confi dence among Mr. MClntyre's associates on the floor of the Produce Exchange that the most ambitious of all his projects is now certain of accomplishment. After a fight that seemed almost hopeless two months ago, the broker has succeeued in convincing the English stockholders of the Pillsbury- Washburn mills that his scheme to unite all the leading flour mills in the country into one giant flour trust, which shall practically control the entire product of American mills, supplying three-fourths of the civilized world with breadstuffs, is practicable. Mr. Mclntyre and Richard Glynn, Presi dent of the Pillsbury-Washburn mills, departed for London in October. Mr. Glynn had come over to investigate the plan to form the combination. Mr. Mclntyre un folded it to him in his own plausibk way. But the Englishman was not convinced. The cable brought the announcement that the whole scheme had been abandoned. Mr. Mclntyre came home and said nothing. Put he sailed for Eondon again four weeks ago. It was in answer to a cable from Richard Glynn. He wanted to talk it over now himself. So the leaven had begun to work, as Thomas A. Mclntyre knew it would. Just before the steamship Majestic sailed from Holyhead for New York last Thurs day Thomas A. Mclntyre sent this cablegram to a member of the local grain firm: " We win." Richard Glynn had changed his mind, and the giant flour trust with its capital of $150.-000,000 and its milling capacity of 95.000 barrels of flour a day will be launched by the shrewd and persistent promoter of the Produce Exchange. wmiam A. E. Moore and Fayne Strahan Moore, who are accused of having worked . a badger game on election bet to former Corporation Counsel William II. Clark. It was a small matter of $5,000, which was spent for a ,post-electlon dinner. The feast was spread In Mr. Clark's stable, and the guests included such well-known men as former Mayor Gilroy, Charles II. Webb, and Alfred de Cordova. A number of horsemen were also among the guests. The table. In the form of a big horseshoe, was spread in the carriage-room, which was rich In carpeting and draperies. Many unusual things happened at the dinner. Mr. Clark's favorite horse was led to the guests. He occupied his time eating the flowers, and to wash them down drank champagne from the punch bowl. He showed his hilarious condition soon after. One of the guests rode on his back around the room. Afterward Shetland ponies were ridden into the room by the guests. Colonel Brown was toastmaster. and in the middle of the speeches he arose and handed Mr. Clark the check for $0,000. All the guests cheered, and there were strange noises in the stalls, which might have been horse laughs. Besides the speeches there were various kinds of amusements, and after each speech an orchestra played patriotic airs and coon songs. The forty guests did not leave the table until about 4 a. m. John McCullagh, State Superintendent of Elections! for the metropolitan elections dis tricts of New York and former Chief of Police, Is going to Havana to investigate its police system and make suggestion as to its complete reorganization. Mr. McCullagh received this evening a telegram from Adjutant General Henry C. Corbin at Washington directing him to report forthwith to General Greene in Havana.

They were accompanied by their attorney, R. A. Cantwell, and John A Rogers, the latter going on their bonds, which were fixed at $500 by Justice Doyle. They were charged with rioting. Neither Smith nor Matuseck would talk as to their whereabouts since the shooting, nor as to the part they played in the affair, except to say they were innocent of the charge brought against them, and had wanted to surrender themselves ever since it was known the police were looking for them. Rogers met Cantwell in. the afternoon at the Madison street saloon of Powers & O'Brien, where the matter was talkfd over at considerable length. In the evening Cantwell telephoned Rogers to meet him at Madison and Jefferson streets, and when Rogers reached the place Cantwell was there with the two men. The party proceeded to the Desplalnes Street Station without any delay. Mr. Cantwell refused to say whether the men had been. in the city all the time slnca the trouble of Tuesday night. He said the men all along had insisted upon surrendering, and' that no case could be made out against them. He said he probably would move for the appointment of & special Coroner and State's Attorney in connection with the case, and declared he would spring a big sensation in the case in a few days, and one that would! hurt somebody. Mr. Rogers said1 he had known the two men were anxious- to surrender, and as he was convinced no case would be made out against them, he had agreed to go on their bonds. He professed to know nothing as to their whereabouts since the shooting. Immediately after the shooting at Bricklayers' Hall, a bulletin, was sent out by ttac police giving a description of the men, and stating- they were wanted for murder, it being believed at the time that Smith had shot Policeman Mahoney, while Matuseck was thought to have had a hand in some of the shooting. The case will come up for hearing tomorrow morning before Justice Doyle. When told . of the arrest of Smith andl Matuseck, Coroner Bera said: " I am not losing any sleep over the threats of Rogers and his followers, and I do not believe any warrants will be taken out for my arrest on a serious charge."

Every huge pile of snow along Broadway and the side streets crossing bears aloft a board covered with the lithograph, of some favorite actor or actress.

Down-town wags are already at work. South William street,- which extends from Broad to Beaver street, is one of the shortest streets in the city, being only about 700 feet long.- It is also a narrow thoroughfare, hedged in by tall buildings on either side. Moreover, South William is a busy street. For nearly a week this business street has been "buried under snow nearly three feet deep. For two days the merchants in the street bore the discomfort with fortitude. Then the strain became unbearable, and on AVedneeday morning there appeared before the houise of William H.

Upon its crest ws,s placed a board upon which was written this legend: White wines, we've srrown wearv: , -O, come with your wagons and cart us away. At intervals of twenty feet along the street arose other mountains of snow, earn crowned with its legend. One read as follows: "If not removed before the Fourth ot July will be stored at government expense." In front of 35 South William street was a continuous chain of snow mountains, literally covered with inscriptions. But the one which causel every passerby to turn his head was crdwned with a small flag, whirh waved defiantly over the words: " San Juan Hill: " Teddy fifty miles away at " Oyster Bay!"

As Compared With Meat . One of the most valuable items in one's dietary is good, rich cream. sThe re mark is frequently made that cream is too expensive to use freely." Some people think they must have meat every day at io and 25 cents per pound, and do not realize that 5 cents worth of pure cream for breakfast will do more to put on flesh than 25 or 30 cents worth of meat. An ideal portion of breakfast is that obtained from, say, four teaspoons of Grape-Nuts and a little pure, thick cream, either cold or hot. This is one of the most delicious dishes imaginable, and is served without cooking or trouble of any kind, and cannot be equaled in point of food value for the human body. Made by the Postum Co., at Battle Creek, Mich. The Grape-Nuts, consisting largely of grape-sugar, have passed through processes similar to the first act of digestion, and are therefore most easily digested, and,' in combination with cream, they render the cream itself easy of digestion. Grocers sell Grape-JSuts. The Emp.ror of Germany has a running 1 ear. A rather prosy statement to make of so great a personage it Is true, nevertheless; and, what is worse, he can find no cure. This greatest of emperors, this autocratic ruler of the greatest of nations, can find no cure for such a seemingly insignificant malady. Just think of it; a man at whose beck' one ot the strongest armies and navies of the! whole earth could be set in motion, a man!,, whose rule is absolute over the country of. medical universities, a man whose slightest j caprice could press Into service the most) noted savants and philosophers on earth, hasj a running car and is unable to find a cure! j Now contrast the experience of the follow-; Ing citizens of the United States with the! Emperor of Germany. Like the Emperor, j they failed to find a cure. But. unlike the; Emperor, they happened to be plain. citizens; of the United States, rather than the center of the inner court of the most exclusive and carefully guarded aristocracy of the world.; In bis position noth-, ing but the remedies -that have met the ap-'. proval ot the most' - fastidious medical or-1 thodoxy could ever . reach him. In the po-1 sition of these American citizens, how ever, they had access' to remedies old and . t l, Dew tried and un-Scott BasticK. tried, approved and, "SISAW disapproved They, Dr. Hartman. were at perfect liberty j to try anything they 1 f hose to. They chose to try the remedy that ' had cured others like themselves, and thus; they found a cure. i Running of the ears, deafness or all other affections of the middle ear are due pri- j marlly to chronic catarrh. Running of the. ear is properly called chronic suppurative 1 catarrh. Pe-ru-na will cure catarrh of the; middle ear, as well as catarrh located elsewhere. This has been proven over and over . again in Innumerable cases besides the ones ! Just mentioned. Deafness and running of the ears are but symptoms of chronic catarrh of the middle ear. Pe-ru-na cures the catarrh, when the symptoms disappear, whether it be running ears or deafness or any other affection of the middle ear. The remedy is compounded according to the formula originally devised by Dr. Hartman of the Surg'cal Hotel, Columbus, O., the noted catarrhal authority. Following are a few cases of catarrh of the-middle ear, in which a permanent cure was made by the use of Pe-ru-na. These, of course, are only examples of the many thou-1 ands ot cases which Dr. Hartman has cured:- The first case, Mr.Amos B.Miller, Mechanic's Grove, Pa., is one of chronic suppurative catarrh ot the ear of 28 years' standing, which produced a constant discharge from both ears. This man - is bow entirely cured and is a ttving witness to the fact that Pe-ru-na can cure uch cases. "I bad a profuse and constant discharge from both ears for 28 rears, caused by taking cold (catarrh). The last four years polypi tumors filled both ears; I was very deaf. I then applied to Dr. Hartman, who cured my ears perfectly. I now hear as well as ever in my life. I would not take a thou sand dollars for the benefit I received from Dr. Hartman'a treatment." The second case, Mr. H. Walter Brady, CaBcade,Ark.,i3 a cast of suppuration of tb middle ear of 14 years' standing. After a course of treatment with Pe-ru-na he wai entirely cured and haa remained so ever since. "I had running ears, and for 14 years I was almost ac Invalid. It was so offensive that I exclud ed myself from all society. I received a pamphlet from Dr. Hartman, entitled The Ills of Life,' snd wrote me that the remedy was simple and that I could cure myself. After using $17 worth of his remedies I was entirely cured. The world could not buy my fortune. I recommend Pe-ru-na to all as the best medliine sold." The third case is that of Rev. S. H. Ren-fro, Norbarne, Mo., who had running ears. Could get no relief. He was finally cured by using Pe-ru-na. "My head gathered and broke and my ears ran terribly. I tried several remedies with no relief. At last I got a bottle of Pe-ru-na and it did me so much good that I kept on .us.inz. H; Master Murphy, w ills,' Adolph Weiss. 1111 Park Avenue. New Tork.

My bead does not pain any more, my ars have stopped running and 1 leeTa great deaTbci ter. I think the publio ought to know whaS Pe-ru-na has done for me and will do for them, and you are at liberty to use this statement in any way you think best." The next is the c&ie of Master Uarpl who had been troubled with runtlng ever since Toe was months oil. After thorough course treatment with Pe ru-na he was entirely cured, and Is now re Jololng In the fact; that he is ectdrela free from this horrU ble disease. Mrs. Mol lie L. Murphy, Iatan Mitchell Co- Tez3 ays: "Our son had: been troubles with; running ears eves since he was 9 months old. I wrote Dr. Harta man that they were running terribly, too badj tor him to go school. I commenced the Pe4 ru-na and sent him to school. He has not missed a day sine he began to go. He tooli seven bottles ot Pe-ru-na. and bow has ever appearance oi a sound, healUiy boy. He wa 10 y ears old the 1st day of last June. Many ! thanks to Dr. Hartman for nit kind advice jand wonderful medicine. In regard to the good effects of your reme dies allow me to state that I consider La-cu-pia the greatest medicine known for scrofula. My little son has Improved wonderfully. We did not expect to bring him up, he was so weak and feeble. Now he can walk, is cheerful, and, with the exception f his right ear, which is ptill running which 1 hope will cease by the constant use of your vafc uable remedy he will soon be a healthy child. I write to let you know how I am getting along. I have taken about five bottles of Pe-ru-na and am proud to say that I have fully recovered. At first the catarrh was so bad I could scarcely hear; but now there is no difficulty in hearing and all the symptoms of catarrh have disappeared. Many thanks for your kindness and for your wonderful medicine. Mr. C. II. Jackson, Sugar Land. Tex says: "I beg to uend you my testimonial as to the merits of 3ur Pe-ru-na. For the past several years I have been greatly annoyed with catarrh. 1 was advised to use your remeiTy, and it affords me pleasure to write you telling that I have been Tully restored after giving your remedy a full and thorough test. I heartily recommend Pe-ru-na to all suffering with catarrh." MU3 Esther Luther. writes: " I took your Pe-ru-na for deafness and consider myself entirely cured. I can hear now as well as I ever could, and Fhall always feel very thankful to you for your kindly advice. My father was greatly benefited in a severe attack of la grippe by i4lI!itiln,vmei. I. fc. the use of Pe-ru-na. Mr. A. W. Coale. Manager Gem Nickel Mines, Hillside. Colo., writes: Some time, ago I received some of your pamphlets, and, after reading them, concluded to try Pe-ru-na for catarrh. My hearing was almost gone in one car. Before I had taken one bottle of Pe-ru-na my hearing was as good as it ever was. Mrs. R. O. Beene pays: M My little boy. when he was one and a half years old. was taken with scrofula. He had always been afflicted with runningears, and when he was taken with the scrof ula about twenty sores appeared on the back , of his neck and and on the glands of his throat. His neck was greatly enlarged, and he had to lie on his stomach about five months. He had been so for three months before we commenced using La-cu-pl-a. We had given La-cu-pl-a for about three months before he got welL He had to take thr bottles of the medicine and it entirely cured him. I am very thankful to God that t learned of your medicine in time to save his life. I send you his picture for publication. if you desire to do so." There are three classes of people who are Invited to write to Dr. Hartman. Firsti those who desire to become thoroughly posted on catarrhal diseases. Second: those who are taking Pe-ru-na for catarrh, but desire to put themselves under Dr. Hart-man's Fp? clal advice. Third: those who would like to have a book containing Da Hartman's lectures on chronic catarrh, delivered at Surgical Hotel. All these people should address their letters to Dr. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio. Miss Ethr Luther. Harrison O. .reracnviu xju M Any Diflpl to a fe Fe-ra-na Atoanc for fls Year 18S9.
