CENTRAL AMERICA, dent Gutierrez led to a meeting of the three commissioners who formed the executive head of the union until a president was elected and a decision reached to abandon the union, leaving each of the three states forming It— Nicaragua, Salvador and Honduras—to resume Its former status as an Independent sovereign nation. The Uprising In Salvador. When the union was formed on Nov. 1 last, Messrs. Galllgos, Mathus and Ugnrte were placed in charge until the presidential election was held this month. It Is this executive commission which has now determined to abajidon the plan of a union. In addition to the foregoing dispatch the state department has been advised through Minister Merry and also through one of our consular officers that the uprising In Salvador had been successful and that peace was restored after much disorder. As a result of the collapse of the union, Messrs. Zalaya, Bonllla and Regalado become the executive heads of their several countries. It Is understood that this condition ID much preferred by the government of the United States which would rather deal directly with Nicaragua and the other countries than with an anomalous union. A Mure .SubataiitJRl Union. Leading Central American officials say that on the ruins of this attempt at a union might be built a more substantial union, embracing all five of the states of Central America. The absence of Costa Rica and Guatemala from this last attempt at union operated largely toward Its failure. Senor Corea, charge of the three countries In the union, was at the state department making Inquiries. He cabled for Information and was looking for full reports on the status of affairs. NICARAGUA CANAL REPORT. Commission Hopes to Have It Ready for Opening of Congress. Washington, Dec. 2.—The Nlcarague canal commission, of which Admiral Walker Is president, Is hurrying forward its work with a view to present- Ing a report by the time congress meets or soon thereafter. In any event It Is Impossible that a nummary of the commission's findings will be made known to the president for such use, If any, as he desires to make of it In his message to congress. An Important technical piece of work just completed uy the commission Is a chart showing for the first time the level of Lake Nicaragua for every day of an entire year, establishing a, basis for the size and character of dams, locks, etc. The observations show that the lake level is about ]03!£ feet above sea level In May and 107 feet iti October, these being the extreme months. This reverses the usual calculations of deep water In spring, and Is due to the rainy season of the tropics, which conies late In the summer. The observations are regarded by the commission as very favorable In their Inlltu-nce on the canal project as a whole. LOSE $1,000,000 UY STORM.

New York, Div. 2.—The inurltie underwriters of tliJs city Kay tlmt the losses sustained by their companies as the result ol the Sturm beginning last Saturday will prulmlily amount In the aggregate in something more than $1.000,010. twlng to the lack of sullicimit dulu of a. trustworthy character It will be some clays before a definite statement of the full extent of the losses can be mnde. There will be, In all likelihood, u large amount of salvage realized from the wrecks. Most of the vessels carrying Insurance were covered to the full amount of their value, though some of the smaller craft known to have been lost were uninsured. There is no truth In the report that It has been decided to Increase rates as a result of the losses for the last few years. When, however, the full effect of the storm upon marine risks shall have been ascertained, the whole matter of rates may come up before the American Institute of Marine Underwriters.

Grave feara are entertained for the safety of the crews of both crafts, as neither has been seen by incoming vessels. The City of Augusta has a crew of eight men and the Knos Soule had four men on board. Rescued .Shipwrecked Sailors. Baltimore.

Dr. Green, his principal opponent, held the convention from 10 a. in. until G in the evening before the final and decisive vote was reached. In answer to a report read before the convention by George F. Henry and which came from the Plnkerton Detective agency, Dr. Green rose and addressed the convention as follows: "Standing here In the presence of this altar of Almighty God, standing here before you, friend or foe as you may be, 1 simply make the one denial that an Innocent man dare make invoking on himself the Judgment of the advent of God. Of each, of every allegation you linve listened to, on the honor of 'a Christian man, I declare myself absolutely innocent, and may God Judge my accusers and myself." PAINFS CELERY COMPOUND.

It bequeaths the entire estate, which has a value of about (10,000, to the widow and also appoints her executrix. No reference Is made In the will to the mysterious motor upon which Keely had been working for so iminy years. The absence of mention of the motor In the will was a disappointment to the stockholders of the Keely Motor company. They must now await the pleasure of Mrs. Keely for an explanation of the motor, there belntr generally entertained a belief that the Inventor imparted to his wife Information on the mystery which will be of value to the motor company. To Cfilubruto tli« Founding of I>«trolt. Detroit, Dec. 2.—Mayor Maybury's of- flce was filled with representative citizens and leading business men laying plans for the celebration In 1U01 of the 200th annlversay of the founding of Detroit by Pere Marquette. It seemed tW general opinion, after much discussion, that the best method of celebatlon would be the holding of an exposition, representative of the progress of the middle west. Plans were discussed for the raising of funds necessary and all present pledged themselves to work for the success of the idea. A committee of three was apoplntud to select another committee of ten. which In turn will select a large general committee to start working on the project Immediately. Forfltioil City (luvermueiit.

Ed Porter, who has been riding with them from New York, accompanied them on this last trip, and they were joined by various cyclists along the way. The tourists proceeded leisurely, for they were due at their destination at 3 o'clock In the afternoon and had plenty of time. Preparations were mnde to met them In force first at (he south entrance to Jackson park, but cyclists were making ready during the morning to fall In with them all along the route, and there were prospects of an Immense crowd to greet them as tjiey finally wheeled up and dismounted for the last time In their memorable journey. I'ollco. Mimic and Wheelmen. The principal escort met the returning cyclists at the corner of Michigan boulevard and Twenty-second street. It was made up of mounted park police, a band of music, the Illinois and Lake View Cycling clubs, and unattached wheelmen. The two clubs turned out in honor of their former member, as Dr. Mcllrath belonged to both before his departure. He and his wife c?.r:lei the club pins around the world with them. The route from Jackson park was through the South park system, the Midway plalsance, Washington park, Giand boulevard to Thirty-third street. Thirty-third street to Michigan avenue, Michigan avenue to Jackson boulevard, Jackson boulevard to State street, Stale street to Madison street, and Madison street to the corner of Dearborn street. After their arrival at the point from which they started three years and eight months ago. Dr. and Mrs. Mcll- rath were tendered a reception at IH Madison street. When this intrepid pair dismounted from their wheels at Dearborn and Madison streets, they had traveled a round 30.000 miles. San Francisco was reached In fifty-two days, by a route directly across the continent. Cycling clubs In all the cities they passed through turned out to meet them and cheer them on their way. Coniitrlflfl Through Which They I'anetl After eleven weeks hud been spent at San Francisco, they took passage for Yokohama, putting In two months In the flowery kingdom. Jan. 12 they sailed for Shanghai, and spent four weeks studying that city and Its people. March 3. 1896, they started directly across Mongolia. Many adventures fell to their lot after they left civilization, and they narrowly escaped death more than once. But they finally, after climbing mountains and traveling plains for a distance of 4,200 miles, reached Uurmah, Just about a year after their departure from Shanghai. Thence they went through India, Persia. Russia, Turkey, Koumanla, Austria, Germany arid England, and took passage for New York, where they arrived In October. There they rested fora short time, and then took up their final journey for Chicago. The trip from there has been comparatively slow on account of unfavorable weather, but tbe two courauc'ouH cyclists have pushed on, until they have now reached (hi- end of their long and ad- ventuivus journey. ^i Vril NEW YORK, Sept. 30,1898. Messrs. Wells, Richardson & Co., Gentlemen—I might have broken down sooner iu the campaign about Santiago If I had had time to realize what was the matter with me before the Spaniards surrendered. God knows I broke down so enough as it was, and it was as great a surprise to me as it was to the other boys who knew me at home. But the Spaniards kept us busy, when we were not busy on our own account getting ready for the big fight. That I was a member of the Koosevelt Regiment I shall. alwayp be proud, and the fights at Las Quaaimas and at Han Juan Hill will be things to talk about for many a year. Sut I would not have lived to talk about them if I had not found something to brace my nerves up again after the siege I had of it at Santiago with dysentery and slow fever. I got ao I could hardly shoot, and felt like I did not care whether I did or not. I lost 20 pounds in weight and a lot more than that in spirit, If you can measure a fellow's spirit that way. Half a dozen Mauser bullets could not have made a worse mess of me than the Cuban climate and the mud in the Santiago trenches did. As soon as I found I was sick and my nerves were all gone I bunted for a tonic. I found it on the way back Norto, when I got some of the Paine's celery compound 1 saw other men using. Bow it braced me up my picture will show better than anything else. It Is the greatest nerve restorer that can be made, for it brings all the foroe there is in a man to the surface. E. B. Boii/r, Dango, Colorado. NEW YORK, Oct. 6, '98. Qentlemen-If anybody in the whole regiment of Rough Eiders had a chance to observe the general weakened condition of the men when they started back to the United States, as compared with their stalwart condi tion when they sailed from San Antonio on June 8,1 think I had. Oklahoma is generally regarded as a healthy climate, and last May, when I left there, I hardly knew what sickness meant. Earlier in life, however, I had lived in the East, and after a month in service knew that what I needed, in my general run-down condition, was a nerve tonic. I knew If my nerves were fixed up there would be no trouble about my general health as soon as I got away from the army. I alao knew the position that Paine'p celery compound occupied, althongb I had not bud occasion to use it much myself. I got a. few bottles of it and began to take it and give it to a few of mv acquaintances. It actually seemed to build up my nervous constitution almost as rapidly as the Southern climate had torn it down. The same thing was true of the other men I gave it to. Unless I had found this tonic to ro- store my norves I feel sure that 1 would have gone to the hospital at Montauk Point, (and 1 mil-fat have shared the fiite of many other poor follows whose impoverisued condition old not yield to the doctor's treatment. It gives me pleasure to recommend Paine's celery compound as the best remedy ever sold in America. Sergt. M. DonriiETT, Quthrie, Oklahoma. ST. Louis, Sept. 29,1808. Messrs. Wells, Richardson & Co.: Gentlemen—Nobody can blame me of being disloyal if I say that Palne'a celery compound has done more for me than any other person or thing since I left Silver City to join the Rough Riders. It has pulled together the scraps of a stalwart man, brought me round from all the bad effects of the Onban climate, and braced me up until I am in better health than I have been In ten years. My friends In the west think I am nearly, dead from the army fever they called calientura in Cuba. When 1 get back to Silver City they will be aa surprised as I sometimes feel myself. I had pretty good nerves before I enlisted. They went to pieces while we were lying out in the trenches at Santiago, dodging bullets. >I began to (eel feverish from the day we got to Siboney. When the Mausers sang abont our ears I noticed that I was getting nervous. 1 found myself scarcely able to walk after tbe battle of San Juan. I got worse until I got back to Montauk Point, where I got a bottle ot Paine's (celery compound from another fellow la the regiment. I saw several of the Rough Riders taking It. With some of them, as with me, It seemed to take the place of both food and medicine, for the systems of many of the men needed toning up Before they could again eat as they had done before they left this country. 1 don't know muoh about medicines. We don't need much medicine In New Mexico. .But I know Paine's celery coin pound has fixed me up until I feel able to take the road for home, where 1 expect to tell every one who mentions nerves to me about my case.
