S. E. COOK, Chairman Congressional Com. Huntlngton, Ind., Dec.18, 1897. CHICAGO expects to secure the proposed government armor plate factory . . RUSSIA, Germany, England and France are concentrating war ships in Chinese waters. All these European powers want a slice of the Chinese empire. THE extraordinary demand for American food products should prove a blessing to the American people. We will sell abroad this year more than a billion dollars worth of goods. No sooner is the strlKe of the plate glass workers settled at Kokomo and El wood than the green bottle makers at Anderson and Alexandria go out. StrUe follows strike In the gas belt •with the regularity of clock work. IT Is stated on what seems reliable authority tbat more than halt the Bepubllcan members of the Illinois delegation in congress are opposed to Banker Gage's currency scheme. The Indiana Republican congressmen will likely do whatever Senator Fairbanks suggests. AKMOUR delivered nearly two million bushels of wheat to the Letter crowd yesterday. He must scrape up another million bushels before January 1st. The Leiter crowd will then have five million bushels of good wheat In their possession and will be Interested in selling It at an advanced price. THE wages of 20,000 operators in Hew Hampshire cotton mills will he teduced 10 per cent on January 1st. This number added to the 28,000 employes of the Fall River mills makes nearly 50,000 people who must hereafter struggle along at lower wages. Is It any wonder that Senator Chandler is fighting tbe perpetuation oK the gold standard? Wall Street Hopefol Commenting upon tbe statement madebyHety Clews tbat "of one thing Wall street may be assured— that is, that 1C has less to fear from and more to hope from Congress than for severaly ears past," Tbe Indianapolis Sentinel says: "There can be no question of tbe truth of this statement. If there was ever a congress assembled that waa under obligations to Wall street it-is this one. Wall street was a great factor In the campaign of last year, and it is still expending a great deal of money in tne great work of "educating tbe country up to the point of doiag what Wall btreet wants done. At present Wall street is especially interested in tbe honest money steal, and it is laboring with congress and with the people to secure what it desires. First of all It wants the"coin" bonds changed to "gold bonds," Tbat wou'd be a great thing for Wall street, for it holds a very large amount of these bonds. Just the change of that little word would be equivalent to a donation of over 1200,000,000 to the bondholders. And then Wall street wants the United States to withdraw its paper money and give the national banks control of tbe currency of tbe country, because it can control the banks much more easily and certainly than it can control the government. Already ominous reports have been received of heavy purchases of national bank stock and the consolidation of banks by Wall street Interests which indicate the formation of a gigantic syndicate .or trust for the control of the currency supply of tne country." BOSTON E'CfeCTS'tHl'DEMOCRAT Qnlncy Made Mayor by » Majority Over Curtis of Nearly 4.00O Votes. Boston,. .Dec. 22. — Mayor Josiah Quincy, Democrat, was re-elected yesterday by a decreased plurality over ex-Mayor Curtis, his opponent two years ago, although the city ivent Republican at the state election last month. The attempt to split the Democratic vote in the city by vigorous work on the part of Thomas Riley. running as a silver Democrat, proved futile. His rallies were crowded and his audiences apparently intensely loyal, but less than 3,000 voters supported him at the polls, the Democrats as a rule remainingloyal to Quincy. The surprise of the election was the small vote on Riley. Even in the wards where he made his greatest effort and where he was backed by young politicians who claimed to have a strong following only a few were found in his support at the polls, while in his own precinct he received but two votes. The total vote was little more than that oJ two years ago. The total vote for mayor, with one precinct missing 1 , is aa follows; Quincy, Democrat, 39,707: Curtis, Republican, sn.741; Riley. Bryan Democrat. 2,i>85; Goldstein, Socialist, 776. Meriden,Cnnn..Dec. 22.—The city election held here yesterday resulted in a Democratic victory, Amos Ives. the Democratic nominee for mayor, defeating- hia Republican opponent. Arthur S. Lane, by about 350 majority. Democratic aldermen and councilmen were elected in three out of the five wards. HALF A MILLION LOST BY FIRE. THE deficit for the first nine months t>: the Dlngley tariff aggregates nearly 146,000,000. The flrst year of the Wilson tariff, the expenditures exceeded the receipts by 142,000,000. The last year of the 7/ilson tariff the deficit was but $18,000,000. If tbe gold conspirators would now make a raid on the gold reserve they could force another bond issue, WHILE there are a good many complaints about the vast expenditures for pensions, it is nevertheless true that more money has been paid out to bondholders as interest on the public debt than has been paid pensioners. Tbe issuing of bonds and the payment of Interest was perhaps a necessity. A veteran of the war, in considering these things justly, §ays that "It Is not overestimating 16 to say that those who stayed at home and loaned the government money by purchasing its bonds with a depreciated currency at 50 and 60 cents ou the dollar, have, by the enactment of special legislation in their interests, been more generously favored than those who shouldered a gun and went to the front. It may be of interest to some to know that the first sale of bonds was taken almost exclusively by the soldiers in the field; those willing; to assist the government at a safe distance were somewhat reluctant about investing in Uncle Sam's paper at the start, even though they were getting it at a large discount. Since that tim« tbey have been equally clamoroui for what they termed their righto, M the soldier has lor Ml." Okie «e«SIy effect on her adversary, carving her on the neck and breast. The woman's life is despaired of. Clara Duncan, who tendered her good offices to stop the duel, was also badly lacerated. All the parties are either in the hospital or Jail.

Dec. 22.—For several weeks merchants have been missing articles from their show windows. The large drug Store of Grover, Hazelrigg & Bonner suffered the heaviest, and a young woman \va? discovered helping herself liberally to the Christ- mi 1 , s goods displays, cut glass and silverware catching her eye. She '.vas found to hai-c a. rtri^ptaci* under her cloak, in which a number of articles stolen from thesheives had been p'.acej. and after being taken into custody a trunk tilled with dress goods and shoes, with ?mailer articles, tak-n from the different stores, was also revealed. Owing to her youth she was not prosecuted. A few days ago a society woman was caught purloining goods at B. Grover's ptore, but the owner agreed not to prosecute if compensation was made. Two young giris \vere detected the other evening: stealing hats from Jacob Klass' millinery store, and the merchants are shadowing two other vromen who have money sufficient for their needs, but who are kleptomaniacs.

NO FAITH CUKE About Stuart's^ Djspeysia Tablets. They Cure Stomach TionblesOand Indigestion Anywej,. Whether Ton Hare Faith in 1 hem or Sot. 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 medid ne, have produced remarkable cares in all ages. This is especially true in nervous troubles and no field oflerg so prolific a harvest for the quack and charlatan, as the diseases arising from a weak or run-down nervous system. Nevertheless, tbe most common of all diseases, Indigestion and stomach troubles, which in turn cause nervous diseases, heart trouble, consumption and loss of flesh, requires something besides fa,ith cure. Mere faith will not digest you 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 stcmajh after meals, whether you have faith that thev will or not. They invigorate the stomach, make pure blood and strong nerves, in the only way that nature can do it, and Chat is, from plenty of wholesome food well digested. It is not what we eat, but what we digest that does us good. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold by druggists at 50 cents for full sized package.
