S. E. COOK, Chairman Congressional Com. Hnntington, Ind., Dec.18, 1897. WHO is there to mourn for Hanna? HANNA Is credited wilth being a •klllful manager, but he Is no match lor Charles Kurtz, who, although poor and having no offices! to distrlb- mte among the faithful, has overthrown Hanna In the first engagement, at ler.st. GOVERNOR BUSHNELL Is a very fcold man to defy Mark Hanna, who Is backed by all the trusts, corporations and gold coiasplraiiora in the •ountry. Hanna's failure to get back into the senate would mean a great loss to those who are now openly flghting to permanently establish the •ingle gold standard; and to surrender the government's prerogative of is- •uiflg money to banking corporations. SENATOR TELLEK introduced a resolution In the senate yesterday TiTafflrmiog the Sbanley Matthews resolution, which passed congress in 1878, declaring all government obligations payable In either gold or sil- Ter, at the option of the government. It was referred to the finance committee, of which Senator Jones is chairman, and will be reported back to the senate before many days when an interesting debate will begin. Drifting and Disrupting. The Republican party Is pretty badly disrupted. It passed a tariff law which, In six months, has created * deficit of 145,000,000 and led to a reduction In the wages of perhaps 100,000 laboring people employed by protected corporations. It achieved a victory In the last campaign under the banner of "sound money," and now there are nearly as many Interpreters of "sound money" as there •re leaders of the party. Hanna and Gage and Fairbanks say it means gold. Chandler and Wolcott and Carter say It- means gold and silver. Sneaker Reed refuses to Interpret. The bankers say It means the substitution of 'bank notes to take the place of greenbacks. The bondholders say it means the substitution of "gold" bonds lor "coin" bonds President McKlnlay doesn't appear to know what it means. McKlnley accused President Cleveland of mak- iog "gold the master; all things else Its servant." It Is generally surmised that McKitilev is doing just what he condemned Cleveland for doing. Then there is tb at civil service law which the Republican party pledged itself to maintain. The spoilsmen want it repealed, und McKlnley begins to waver in its support. Mediocn) congressmen who have tasted the sweets of office for the flnit time are begging of the president to do something to lave them f rom the disappointed hosts that are making life miserable to them. But if ttaepresident yields, the independent vci tiers of the country will turn against the party. These troubles greatly annoy the gold conspirators n ho placed their all on MoKinley expecting that fee would •ell gold bonds to pay off the greenback. The average Republican in the these perilous timos is not certain where he is at. Nolther is McKinley, THE, TUEN OF LIFJ5 !• the most important period in a woman's existence. Owing to modern methods of living, not one woman in a thousand approaches this perfectly natural change without experiencing 1 a- train of very annoying' and some- fcioes painful symptoms. Those dreadful hot flashes, sending the blood surging to the heart -until it seems ready to burst, ;and the faint feeling that follows, sometimes with chills, as if the heart were going to stop for good, are symptoms of a dangerous nervous trouble. Those hot flashes are just so many calls from nature for help. The nerves are crying out :for assistance. The cry should be:heeded in time. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was prepared to meet the needs of woman's system at this trying period of her life. The "Vegetable: Compound is an invigorating strengthener of the female organism. It builds up the weakened nervous system and enables a woman to pass that grand change triumphantly. It does not seem necessary for U's to prove the honesty of our statements, but it is a pleasure to publish such grateful words as the following: "I have been -using Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable: Compound for some time during the change of life and it has been a saviour of life unto me. I can cheerfully recommend your medicine to all women, and I know it will give permanent relief. I would be glad to relate my experience to any gnfferer."—MKS. DELLA. WATSON, 524 West 5th St., Cincinnati, Ohio. urer of the board of trustees of the First Presbyterian church of New York city at the time of his death, he denounces all religion as a eham and as having His origin in superstition. The portion ol his will pertaining to tnls matter reads as follows: "Believing ttoat all religions, including Christianity, are superstitions; that the basic doctrine of the Christian religion—'the fall of man' —is utterly and absolutely false, and that the opposite—the rise of man from the lower orders is a scientific fact—that beliefs in (so-called) miracles are hallucinations of the brain and never had the slightest existence in fact; that the chief characteristics of what is termed 'tne word of God' are injustice, cruelty, untruthfulness and obscenity; that the effect of orthodox Christian teaching is to encourage Ignoratce, selfishness, carrowmindednttss, acrimoniousness, intolerance, wrong and mental slavery: that Christianity, so-called, Is not the religion of Christ; that it supplants ethical culture and true morality with meaningless theology and unbelieving dogmas; that it puts an unknown (and probaiblv unknowable) Imaginary being Ira the place of nature; that it gives a name and a personality to evil—an equally unknown and imaginary hein?; that it I so works upon the credulity of its adherents as to incite in them a fear of (that most horrible of doctrines) eternal punieLtnent. (I say, believing all these), I. in all kindness and in all earnestness, request that over my remains there be DO religious services of any kind, nature, or description whatever. A Strange WilL Henry M. Tabe?, who died In New York the other day, leaving property worth a million dollars, left line moat peculiar will on record.

An invention perfected by Simon Lake of Baltimore, has, however, rendered that and even niora possible. It is a sttiel boat that will crawl about on the bottom of a river or tbe sen like au alligator in the mud. It rolls along ou the ground ou corrugated iron wheels. One feature worth noting in respect to this submarine boat is that it; is designed for the arts of peace rather than of war. When a steamer is sn.uk with her cargo, this submarine boat: will descend beneath the waves and creep alongside the wreck and gather therefrom her freight and other valuables Mid then silently appear on the surface once inoro. The submarine vessel is 29 feet long and 9 feet wide. When it is to be sunk, certain steel compartments are filled with water. As these fill the vessel sinks beneath the waves till she strikes bottom, not hurriedly, but gently and gradually. The crew number sis. They receive air through a tube which rises from the teat to the surface and floats open ended upon the water. A tank of compressed ai:r supplies ventilation to the forward compartment, from which a diver leaves the submarine boat to asrplore wrecks. A flagstaff above the surface of the water shows the whenabouts of the craft beneath. The coinpartmunts are emptied ol -water and filled wiSi" air to raise the boat. So thoroughly equipped is this latest invention for ei-floiing river and ocean bed that the vessel cari remain mider water for honis, her icrew meanwhile being quite comfortable. A newspaper man who went down in her on the trial trip is honest enough to confess that he was nearly frightened out of. his .wits. Kerre will curry yom through, with icounon sense te> !back it. Some Expert Wisdom. A United States government expert has been investigating the food of what *ome individuals are fond of calling the "slum people." The expert's conclusions are that the cause of much of the poverty of these "slum people" is caused from their being too extravagant in the purchase of food. He would have them get rich in tbe way in which mast well to do persons who have about all they themselves want advise those poorer tban themselves to adopt—namely, by reducing their expenditures. So, says our government expert from the depths of his well fed consciousness to the slum people: "Eednce your expenditures. Buy cheaper food that will be better for you than what yon now buy. It will likewise go further." The poor consume far too much butter and eggs, the expert finds. They likewise buy quantities of buns and high priced meatB. Let them stop buying eggs and butter and get " proteins," says he, proteins being peas and beans mostly. Stop buying sweet buns or buns with currants in them and get just plain bread. It costs less and is better for your iusides. Quit buying round steak and pork chops and get cheap cuts. They are plenty good enough for you and be blessed to you. Thus far the noble expert. Let the "slum people" take heed. No matter whether they loathe dried beans and peas and cheap meat stews. That docs not matter. Slum people have no right to indulge their tastes. Let them live on beans and chuck steak stews and be thankful kind Providence has sent them a government expert. Chicago Labor Temple. A movement has been inaugurated to erect in Chicago what every city of any size ought to have, a building for the meetings of workingmen's clubs and societies. The Chicago trades unions have taken the matter in hand, and the temple they propose constructing, it is said, will be the first of its kind in tbe world. It will be a noble building,' with gymnasiums, bathrooms, assembly rooms, reading rooms and a large and valuable library. The house will cost not less than §500,000. The rentals from its various assembly rooms, offices, etc., it is expected, will reach $50,000 a year. It will have the advantage over most houses built to rent in that its tenants are already waiting for it before a spade- ful of earth has been dug for its foundation. The 150 labor unions of Chicago will be glad to find a handsome home therein, one that will compare favorably with the millionaire's clubhouse in appearance and accommodations. Ten cent monthly subscriptions have been suggested as a method for raising the preliminary sum for the work. So great is the number of workinginen in Chicago that SI 2,500 a month, §150,000 a year, could be raised, as one workingman himself puts it, "by doing without two beers a month." Two beers a month are not much to sacrifice for so •worthy an object. Wealthy citizens would undoubtedly contribute liberally also, so that funds for the temple could be accumulated iu three or four years at most. The example of Miss Pearl Andrews, an actress and a young woman of excellent' character and family, is to be commended. Miss Andrews was arrested for shoplifting on the accusation of an alleged "detective" in a dry goods store. Kot anything suspicious was found on her, though the zealous detective even tore the lining out of her wrap in the search. Nevertheless the actress was forced to go to the police station and answer to the charge of shoplifting. Aside from the fact that no stolen good? were found iu her possession, there was no reason why she should steal, being in receipt of a good salary and her parents, with whom she lived, being well to do. The duci-five swore she bad seen Miss Andrews throw a pair of gloves i:ato the street when in danger of being captured. There was no evidence to support this statement, however, and the young lady was honorably discharged. Now she will sue the firm for $25,000, and serve them right for having a fool "detective" in their shop. This silly detective business begins to be a tore, as it has long been a, farce. "If I can get plenty of money, I will subdue the Cubans and end: the war by the beginning of the rainy season." So Spanish generals have been proclaiming for three years. But Pando will never get plenty of money, and he cannot end the war before the beginning of the rainy season. Tbe war will never be emded otherwise than by letting Cuba j;o. The ouJy thing for Spain to do is to think out some plan for dropping Cuba with as little hurt to her own pride as possible. Why can fhc. not say that sooner than wring any moire taxes out of the Spanish people she has decided i» quit: The Canadian government will here- jifter permit Americans to ship goods in bond through the Dominion territory to jUaska. This is one more advance in that thoroughly good commercial nnder- iitanding that will redound to the mn- taaal benefit of the two countries.

A Very Bad Animal. In Ifantana the annual loss of cattle, sheep and colts from the timber wolf and the coyote is not less than $250,000. The loss in Wyoming, also in tbe eastern half of the Dakotas and in adjoining states, is on the same scale, so that ranchmen in the great live stock producing region are out of pocket each year from §500,000 to $1,000,000. Every remedy against the sneaking, treacherous brutes has been tried vainly thus far. Montana gives a bounty of $3 per wolf scalp. Last season the state paid in bounties $143,997. The coyote can be poisoned, but the timber wolf is too shrewd for that. He kills his own meat. Ranchmen themselves of ten pay a bounty for the wolf's body and keep the skin. Nevertheless, as many as 30,000 cattle are lost from this cause in each of several northwestern states. j Professor Thomas Shaw of the Minne- ; apolis agricultural experiment, station , proposes in The Breeder's Gazette a ; remedy that would exterminate tho i dread enemy of the ranchman in a few j years if it conld be applied. He propos- . es that fashion take the matter in hand and make wolfskin overcoats and wolf- skin jackets for ladies tbe vogue. He mentions that the craze among women for wearing birds on their hats is rapidly destroying the feathered tribe everywhere, and he does not see why the game thing could not be done in case of the timber wolf. The skin is a soft and valuable fur and could be utilized in many ways. S. K. Crockett Caspar Whimey . D.

A PLAGUE OF THE NIGHT Itching Piles and OtherJKectal Troubles Eoisily Cured by a Sew and Safe Method. A Kemurkable Number of Cures Made by the Pyramid Pile Cure. About one person in every four suffers from some form of rectal disease. The most common and annoying Is Itching piles, Indicated by warmtti, slight moisture and! Intense, uncontrollable itching in the parts affected. The usual-treatment has been soms simple ointment or salve, which sometimes give temporary relief, but nothing like a permanent cure can be expected from such superficial treatment. The only permanent cure tor itching piles yet discovered is tbe Pyramid Pile Curej not only for itching piles, but for every other form o£ piles, blind, bleeding or protruding. The first application gives instant relief and the continued use for a short nirne causes a permanent removal of tbe tumors or tbe small parasites which cause the intense itching and discomfort of itching piles. Many physicians for a long time supposed that the remarkable relief afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cure was because it was supposed to contain cocaine, opium or otber similar drugs, but such is not the case. A recent analysis of the remedy showed it to be absolutely free from any cocaine, opium, or in fact any poisonous, injurious drugs whatever. For uhls reason the Pyramid Pile Cure isi probably |the only pile cure extensively recommended by physicians, because it is «o safe, so prompt in the relief afforded and so far as known the only positive cure for piles except a surgical operation. In oioe year the Pyramid Pile Care has become the best known, the safest and the most extensively sold of any pile core before the public. Nearly all druggists now sell it at 50cts and $1 per package.

The protest from the Pacific coast against the appointment of Attorney General McKenua to the vacant seat ia the supreme court is remarkable, but it does not give tbe strongest reason, why the proposed promotion is ill judged aud even scandalous. That Mr. McKenua is not qualified' for this high office is the deliberate judgment of those who have had the best opportunity of knowing — the members of tbe bench and ttie baj among whom his professional life has- been spent. No such protest jas ever been filed agaiusc any other nominee for the bench of the supreme court, but Mr. McKenua is equally i^nc for this place by reason of his anJiations and his actions as a lawyer and a judge. He- has been the tool of corporations and the pet of plutocrats. His advancement- has been due entirely to tbe favor of Stanford, Huntington aud other multimillionaires of his section. Every important decision that be made in corporation cases was clearly in tbe interests- of his former clients. He represents m a peculiar degree that perversion of th» ! judicial power to tbe service of plutocracy against which 6,500,000 voters. j protested in the presidential election.
