IN his address from the throne to the members of the German Parliament, yesterday, the Kaiser "balled with delight the peace sentiments of proposal" for universal e young Kaiser gave the of approval to the Czar's peace jtlmonts by asking for an increased budget to pay for a large addition to the German army. General Lee'i Corps. Thirty thousand men under Fitz Hugh Lee are to leave next week for Onba, to occupy the island nntll a government by the Cubans can be formed. A strong demonstration is to be made to impress the Cubans and Spanish that the United States means to govern with a strong hand nntll it can tnrn the island over to the people of Cuba, who, according to President McKlnley, will be expected to govern the island "without passion or prejudice against any of its residents, whether Spanish, Cuban, American, or of other birth. CofiitlttitlM and By-Lswi Adopted Which rix Amount ef Rewsrdt Offered for Criminal*. The committee of five appointed to prepare a constitution and by-law for an anti-burglar league, reported last night at the called meeting of gentlemen proposing to organize such an association. Mr. Frank Ferguson, temporary chairman, presided. Mr. E. M. Dorsey, secretary, read the report prepared by the committee. The report was amended In several particulars; the most Important was In the matter of rewards. One reward of $200 Is offered for the arrest and conviction of any person who commits an unlawful act upon.the person or premises of any member of the association, for which act the law would punish him by not loss than one year's imprisonment In the penitentiary or reform school; 9300 for the arrest and conviction of any person committing the crime of arson and rape upon any member of the association, and the Executive Board is authorized to offer not more than 3600 whore a murder Is perpetrated. The initiation fee will be 92 60 which will include the first quarter's dues; and thereafter dues will be $2 per year, payable quarterly in advance. The constitution and by-laws were adopted as amended, and a committee consisting of E. M. Dorsey, H. K. Johnston and Dr. H. T. Burnap were appointed to secure names for membership, and as soon as 200 names can be secured the chairman Is authorized to coll a meeting for the election of permanent officers. EXCESSIVE SWITCHING CHARGES. Antl Imperialist League. Ervlng Wilson, "Secretary Anti- Imperisl League, Washington, D. C.," is sending out postal cards for voters to "protest against the extension of the sovereignty of the United States, over the Philippine Islands In any event, and over other foreign territory without the free consent of the people thereof." Mr. Wilson does not appear to want votes on the other side, as be sends no cards (or that purpose. His side is a jug-handled arrangement by which only the voice of the antis may be heard, and is a fair expression of a certain clans seeking to control the destinies of this great nation. One-sided people are, as a rule, neither good, great, nor very wise. "Jim Bludioe." A number of papers, among them the Chicago Times-Herald, revamped the thread bare story tbPt Oapt. Win. P. LaMothe, who was burled in Alton last Sunday, was the original "Jim Blndsoe" In Sesretary of State John Hay's famous poem, written many years ago. The Times-Herald's account was the longest that oame under onr observation the verses referring to Jim being quoted In the T.-H. The following telegram will set at rest the question as to who was the original of "Jim Bludsoe" in the mind of Mr. Hay, as described in his poem written so many years ago. Washington, D. 0., Dec. 6.—[Special. ]— Secretary of State Hay said tonight: "I never before heard of Oapt. LaMothe, the river captain, said to be the original of "Jim lilndsoe." • "The real original was Capt. Oliver Fairobild, who was burned (to death on the steamer Fashion, on the Mississippi, two or three years ago." Board of Railway Commissioners Rules Against the C. & A. and Bluff Line. At a meeting of the State Board of Railway Commissioners, in Springfield Tuesday, in the case of the Olt.- zens' Coal Company, of Springfield, against the Ooloago & Alt ju B illroad Company, for charging$5 for switching a loaded oar in the city of Alton, the commission found that the railroad company had charged -§3 in ex cesi of the switching rates prescribed in the schedule of reasonable max I mam rates of the board. Tbe sauio decision was rendered in the case of the Boston Water & Light Co. against the Bluff Line. Both companies have been discriminating against patrons of the other road and have waged a war for several months, during which the public paid the freight. The Alton In raising its charges did so on the pretext that the Bluff Line was overcharging, but how the Alton hoped to affect the Bluff Line by this means no one has been able to understand.

Commercial- Appeal (Dem.) confesses on its party in these words: "Evil days have come to the Democratic party. It is not only a minority party, but a wrangling and dissevered minority party; it is not only become a party of negation, bat a turbulent and faction-bedeviled party of negation. It has no leaders and no objective point to which to lead. Tbe tinsel of place and position is more thought of than all principles or policies. What was once a great party that stood for the broadest statesmanship has degenerated into a number of Insurrectionary factious who agree only on one policy, that sublimely stupid policy of doing nothing and of objecting to anything proposed by the Republicans. "Tbe Republicans are extending the trade of the country, opening new territory, building schools and courthouses in our new possessions, and, whether right or wrong, are doing something to show that they have reasons for being in existence. If the Democrat* in Congress would supplant Bailey with an expansionist who Is in harmony with the spirit of the age,and who Is not a belated wanderer among the paths and ruins of antiquated theories and traditions, there would be some hope for the party, but as long as Democracy means to do nothing Bailey la as good as any one else that can be named " UPPER ALTON. A fairly good audience gathered at the high school assembly room last night to bear the concert by the Illinois Lyric Q aurfcette and Ojn^art GJ Mr. Barnett Wyllle, the violinist, was a Shurtloff student last year, aud was a great favorite in musical circles. Ilia delicate touch and poetic interpretation were never butter revealed than last night, and each of his selections were enfcbueiastioaily encored. Tbe vocal numbers were all good and met with a hearty response from the audience. The town council met last night and spent most of the evening in routine business". One matter of some interest however was brought up. A committee was appointed to confer with the village attorney, 0. W. Leverett, as to the udvisaljiltiy of passing a curfew ordinance. This is a step in the right direction. The curfew law, which Is becoming quite general, requires boys of certain ages to be off the street at an early hour. Boys allowed to congregate on the streets at night Invariably get Into mischief. Of late some of the pranks played by them In Upper Alton have been of a serious nature. If the proposed ordinance materializes our streets will be quiet nights and property owners relieved of some serious annoyances. Mr. Wm. Clark, the A. P. A. man, wound up his engagement here with a lecture to men only, to which an admission fee was charged. During the evening some miscreant filled the chapel furnaoe with old shoes and rubbers and out the electric light fuse. The lecture was almost broken up but was finally continued by the light of a few smoky lamps. Mr. Clark Has had rather a hard time of it here, but nevertheless announces his intention of coming back next year. DR. Wl'RTH'S OPINION OF THE HEW DISCOVERY MEDICINE. IN A Remarkably Sutcestful Remedy for Dyt pepsla, Indigestion and Stomach Trouble). Dr. Wurth In commenting on re cent discoveries In medicine «ald There la none which is certain to be BO valuable and far reaching ID benefi as Stuart's Dynoopsla Tablets, the new stomacb remedy: I say far reaching beoauee people little realize how im portant o sound stomach and vigor ous digestion Is to every man, woman and child. Indigestion la the starting point of consumption, heart disease, Brlgbt'a disease, diabetes, nervous prostration liver troubles; whpiatbisgo? Simply because every nerve, mnscle and tis- HUO in our bodies la created and nourished by the food we eat. If thai food is. by reason of a weak stomach compelled to Ho for hours, a soar fermenting mass of half digested food It poisons the blood and nervous sys tern, creates gas which distends the stomach and bowels, causing pressure on the heart, lungs and other organs and seriously impeding their action Ho says further, the point to dlreo attention ia not the nervea, nor heart nor lungs, nor kidneys, but the stomach, the first cause of all the mis chief. The remedy to use for indigestion and weak stomachs Is not pome cathartic, but a remedy which w!l d'gest the food, increase the flow o gastric juice, absorb the gases, and Stuarts Dyspepsia Tablets will accomplish this result in any case of stomach trouble, because these tablets are composed of the digestive acids aseptic pepsin, Golden Seal and bismuth, pleasant to taste, and not be ing a patent medicine, can be used by any one with perfect safety. I be' lieve Stuart'a Dyspepsia Tableta wll cure any form of indigestion and stomach trouble except cancer of tb stomacb.
