AND now it appears uhat Russia Is to have a slice of China. Her fleet has moved into the harbor at Port Arthur and taken possession of tbat stronghold. Borland looks on in astonishment at the territorial acquirements of Germany and Russia. KJIPBKOB WILLIAM, of Germany,Is going to pick a fuss with somebody. He is ambitious. He wauts to display his military genius What need of maintaining & large army without doing some fighting? Why construct large navies unless war vessels are to be used In actual warfare? Emperor William Is spoiling for a fight and some of these days he will be accommodated. McKiNLKY has shown his willtng- Hess to repay the corporations for their services In his behalf In the ap- jwintment of Attorney-General McKenna to the supreme bench, and In bis desire to name Judge Paxson as toe successor of Wm. R. Morrison on the inter-state commerce commission. Both men are recognized as being In touch with corporations. Hanna pledged many high places to the trusts and railway corporations. MATOK HARBISON, of Chicago, predicts that Bryan will be the Democratic candidate for the presidency in 1900 and that he will be elected. He thinks the silver Issue will be a live one until we have both silver and gold for money. "I believe," he .§ays, "our next great national Democratic campaign will be one of the people against the corporations. It will be an antt-tartfl fight, an antitrust fight and an anti-corporation flfr.ht. I don't mean to say that the battle will be on socialistic lines, but It will be based on the fact that as the corporations pet their rights from the people and are supported by the people, they shculd be ruled by the people and be the servants of the people," WASHINGTON HESING, who died HO unexpectedly at his home in Cbl- cago, Saturday, was 48 years old and had led an eventful life. 9e was born in Cincinnati and removed with his parents to Chicago in 1854. He was a graduate of Yale college and completed his studies in Ger- Miany. For many years he had been a leading character In the busl- •638 and social life of Chicago. His newspaper, the Staats Zeitung, Is the leading German publication in the northwest. He served as postmaster at Chicago from 1893 to 1897, »nd during his incumbency of the office inaugurated many reforms in the postal service. He was an independent candidate for mayor of Chicago last spring and secured 15,000 rotes. She says:—I have been using ycrar Vegetable Compound and find that it Joes all that it is recommended to do. I have been a sufferer for the last four years with womb trouble, weak back and excretions. I was hardly able to do my household duties, and while about my work was nervous that I was miserable. I had also given up in despair, when I vras persuaded to try Lydia E. Pink- bam's Vegetable Compound, andto-day, I am feeling like a new woman.— MBS. ELLA MCGABVT, Neeb<s Eoad Station, Cincinnafj, O. Chandler's Bogle Call. Senator Chandler's attack on Secretary Gage is the leading topic in political circles just now. He says Gage asks impossible reforms and that any lengthy consideration of his schemes in congress will unsettle business, divide the Republican party and result in the election or a Democratic president at the next election. He appeals to McKinley to repudiate the Chicago banker's "insane career." He declares that the proposition to retire the greenbacks is not feasible; that changing the terms ot our bonded indebtedness would be unjust and that to commit this country more tworoughly to the gold standard would be a violation of Republican pledges. There is fun ahead, he declares, if, nnder the leadership of Secretary Gas:e, the gold sonspirators attempt to irrevocably commit this country to the gold standard. Chandler's warn- toK ccmes in good time. The gold conspirators are rallying their forces to awe congress into subjection. As Chandler says, McKinley will be forced to take a stand on the side of the people or go into the camp of the plutocrats. In Exchange for Contributions, The New York World, which threw ita influence to McKinley in the late campaign, Insists that the nomination of McKenna to be a justice of the Supreme court is a scaa- dalons abuse of the appointing power. It bolds: "1. The man's nnfUness by reason of a iMk of learning, a lack ot capacity, * lack of fruitful experience and a lamentable lick of that integrity which is tae most essential qualification of a Supreme court justice, is attested by the Indignant protest of the judges and lawyers in his own part of the country "2. His entire career has been one ol servitude to monopolists, Pacific railway robbers, trust magnates and their kind, and even his decisions as a jud(j6 upon the beech have been te.lnted by evidences of that sub- serviency." "It is a shame," it says, "to put this man upon the bench oC the highest court in tbe land. It is a wrong to the nation and its people. It is an Insult to widespread public opinion. It is a menace to the public welfare. It is a blistering disgrace to the administration which is responsible for it. "The senate's duty is clear, It should reject the nomination as shamefully unfit." The world should take its medicine cheerfully. Do corporations enter the political arena except for pay? OF the LABOR FEDERATION. Gompers Kleclwl President and Kansas City fur the Next Meetinjr. Nashville, Dec. 20.—The Federation o£ Labor Saturday voted to issue an appeal to the unions of the country for contributions to a fund for the aid of the striking engineers of England and contributing $500 tor that purpose.

Two unions have been selected to stand the brunt of the conflict—the International Printing Pressmen's and the Machinists'. These two unions were selected at their own request. TVhy, That AVjis "Reform" Dynamite. J3 Paris, Ills, Dec. 20.—An illicit beer saloon and gambling establishment located at Chrisman. in this county, was blown up with dynamite. The building was completely torn to pieces, and every business house ir, the town was damaged to a greater or less extent. Thomas Cantlon, a boy who slept in the establishment, was blown out into the back yard and received probably fatal Injuries. Public indignation runs very high over the occurrence, and the town board, at a special meeting, offered a reward of $500 for the arrest and conviction of the guilty person. Fltcsiimuons to Fight Co»DOtt Perhaps. Chicago, Dec. 20.—Martin Julian, manager for Bob Fitzsimmons, stated in an interview yesterday that the lanky champion has changed his mind and will again meet ex-Champion Corbett in the prize ring. Fitzsimmons was non-committal, refusing to confirm or deny the story and contenting himself with declaring that he has not said that he will fight Corbett again. Julian's statement was sufficiently emphatic, however, to indicate that he confidently expects the men will meet •jrain. Rungr Wasn't in thfGmvr. Holland, Mich., Dec.

Lee Applied to for Help to Save the $panit.h Colonel. Havana, Dec. 20.—The general topic of conversation in cafes, theaters and clubs is the result of the visit of Lieutenant Colonel Ruiz to the headquarters of the Insurgents. Colonel Ruiz, who was very popular here, visited General Aranguren, the rebel leader, for thi- purpose of inducing him to surrender and accept autonomy, promising him in return money and official preferment. Ruiz, it is understood, offered his services to Marshal Blanco for the purpose of inducing Aranguren to surrender, a.*? the le.tter had been formerly em ployed by Rtilz when he was constructing the V'ento waterworks. After having written to Aranguren Ruiz left Havana for the insurgent camp on Monday last. While Ruiz was at the camp the insurgent Genera! Alejandro Rodriguiz learned of his visit and went to Aranguren's headquarters, where he ordered Ruiz to be tried by court-martial in accordance with orders of General Gomez. Ruiz was defended in his trial by Aranguren and Rafael de Cardenas, the former of whom bad pledged his word of honor for Ruiz' safety. It was reported that General Alejandro Rodriguiz ordered the execution of the prisoner. The Russian consul, who is president ot the Union club and a personal friend of Ruiz, who was a member of the same club, visited United States Consul General Lee and asked him to use Ms influence to save the life of Ruiz. Consul General Lee called privately on Marshal Blanco and stated to him the object of his visit. The governor general allowed General Lee to intercede in a friendly way. Early Friday Ernest Tosca, an attache of the American consulate, with young Manuel Chacon, carrying three days' provisions, left for Campo Florida, Havana pro- tifiie. bearing-, a permit from Marshal Blanco to seeK the camp ol Aranguren with a letter from Consul General Lee. Ruiz was expected here Friday and Gen. GonzalezParrado wasassured that he was at liberty. Friday night it was asserted that Ruiz would be released upon the condition that the insurgent leader Candido Villa Nueva be exchanged far him, but upon the arrival here Saturday evening of Tosca it became generally known that Tosca's vis- It did not avail to save the life of Blanco's envoy. Tosca says he met outposts 'Aranguren's force, and that the chief of the party confirmed the report that on his arrival Colonel Ruiz was met by Aranguren and an escort of twelve men. who received him warmly. Ruiz urged the party to accept autonomy and congratulated himself that he woull induce them to return with him to Ha.ia.na. The insurgents in camp had not been prepared for the visit of Arangtlren, and seeing Ruiz in his uniform and learning the object of his visit they demanded the applica*on of the proclamation of Gomez nnd Rodriguez, which orders the infliction of the death pep- alty upon ail persons who attempt to induce chiefs of the rebellion to surrender. In compliance with their demands a court-martial was formed and the sentence of death was passed upon Ruiz. Senor Tosca adds that Aranguren stood aloof during the trial and allowed the death sentence to be carried out. Colonel Ruiz was executed "•iiii a machete. NO FAITH CUKK Abont, Stuart's^DyspeysIa Tablets. They Cure Stomach TionblesQand In- digestioii AiiywujjtWhelber Ton Hare Faith in Them or A'ot. All physicians agree that the element of faith has a great deal to do In the cure of disease. Firm belief and confidence in a family physician or the same confidence and faith in a patent medicine, have produced remarkable cares in all ages. This is especially true in nervous troubles and no field offers so prolific a harvest for the quack and charlatan, as the diseases arising from a weak or run-down nervous system. Nevertheless, the most common, of all diseases, indigestion and stomach troubles, which in turn cause nervous diseases, heart troable, consumption and ioss of flesh, requires something besides faith cure. Mere faith will not digest your food for you, will not give you an appetite, will not increase your flesh and strengthen your nerves and heart, but Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do these things, because they are composed of the elements of digestion, they contain the juices, acids and peptones necessary .to the digestion and assimilation of all wholesome food. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest food if placed in a jar or bottle In water heated to 98 degrees, and they will do it mush more effectively when taken into the stomach after meals, whether you have faith that they will or not. They invlgoraoe the stomach, make pure blood and strong nerves, in the only way that nature can do it, and that is, from plenty of wholesome food well digested. It Is not what we eat, bat what we digest that does us good. Stuart's Djspepsi* Tablets are sold by druggists at 50 cents for full sized package.
