Its reputation as a cure for catarrh is excellent, it having been uued by a number of people known t< me with the very best results." Very truly, GOT. G.W. ATKINSON. Catarrh is the national disease. Not an American family is free from it. The search for relief and cure is constant Experiments of all kinds are continually made without result for good. Ignorance of the causes anc nature of catarrh is universal. Catarrh is elusive, persistent, penetrating. 11 may exist in any organ of the body. For this national malady there exists the national scientific remedy Pe-ru-na which for forty years has been doing a grand work. Pe-ru-na is the unflinching foe of catarrh and overcomes it wherever it may exist. It la the prescription of Dr. Hartman, President of the Surgical Hotel, Columbua, O., who gives personal attention, without charge, to a voluminous correspondence on the subject of catarrhal diseases.

Entered for Record and Becomes Part of Treaty. WILL MAKE APPEAL TO POWERS. President McKlnley'n Allusion to the Los* of the Maine In Hl« Annual Message Denounced—Spain Hail to Vivid to Superior Force—Principal Points of the Convention us Agreed To—Future of the Philippines—Interview with Gurnica. Paris, Dec. 10.—Senor Mor.tero Itios, president of the Spanish peace commls- llon, and Senor Ojc-da, secretary of that commission, are still confined to their beds. The Illness of Senor OJeda delays engrossing the treaty and It Is doubtful whether It will be signed before Monday. The Spaniards continue making bitter comments concerning President McKlnley's reference to tho Maine. When a correspondent of the Associated Prees approached Senor Garnica of the Spanish commission for further details of the treaty, he said: "The fact that you represent all the American and English papers Is really a, reason why I should say nothing. But what you show me as having been cabled Is substantially correct. The exact number of articles IB still undetermined. It depends upon how Secretaries OJeda and Moore divide the treaty. It may be twelve or twenty articles. The Americans are to pay the Indemnity within three months of the ratification. We shall appoint consuls in Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands without delay. The Cuban consul will be accredited to the powers that be." Refusal of Conllng Station. Asked why the Spaniards refused to grant the United States a coaling station In the Caroline Islands, Senor Garnica said: "The Americans could hardly expect that we should agree to discuss matters outside of the protocol, after the lessons we have had from them on this point. When we wished to discuss the Cuban debt they absolutely refused to consider It and then they ask us for whatever they want. Quelle toupet. ("What cheek.") Yet the Cuban debt remains an Important question for settlement." In regard to the Spaniards' final protest on the subject of the Maine, Senor Garnica remarked: "That protest no becomes history, as It Is embodied In the protocol. We do not wish to remain under an Imputation which would perpetuate animosity and hatred against us and which would be a source of constant Irritation In Spain. It Is neither loyal nor just that this thing should hang over the reputation of Spain. We cannot submit to it. It must be cleared up, in Justice to ourselves. There are many other causes to bring hatred between the two nations without the addition of such a one as this. As to the future relations of the two countries. that Is one of the things history alone can determine. Many nations which have been deadly enemies are speedily reconciled." Trouble for Americans. Senor Garnica was then questioned as to the future of the Philippine Islands and he said: "The United States has inaugurated a policy which will bring It much trouble and many responsibilities. The Americans are not prepared for the work they are about to undertake." The Americans preserve secrecy regarding the terms of the treaty. This Is partly through the Influence of the three senators on the body, who represent that It would be discourtesy to the senate to publish the terms before the treaty Is presented to that body by the president. The protocol of the treaty will almost reach the dimensions of a volume, as It will contain every written statement presented on both sides during the conference. The Spaniards made a last contribution Thursday on the assembling of the commissions. Senor Montero Rlos then presented a vigorously worded protest in which the Spaniards declared they had yielded to force, but that they Invoked the conscience of the nations against the abuse of the rights of nations of which they were the victims. For the I'nrnotfu of Keroril. The protest was for the purpose of record and consisted of an argument In support of every concession demanded by the Spaniards and which the Americans refused, some of them peremptorily and without an opportunity for discussion. The pr. test concluded: 'But these conccss:o: s which we were obliged to make touch us ICPS than insult which, bus l.t'i'n lull cied on our nation by Presld nt McKlnley In his message. We ngiiln pr.-test solemnly against the accusation hurled ngulnst us In connection with the Maine, and wo Intend to again submit the question to un International trlhural. comprised of England, Franee anil r.ermany, ti; determine who shall Inar the responsibility u f the catastrophe." In spite of tho secrecy observed by the Americans, It Is learned that the treaty, In substanie. consists of thirteen or fourteen nrCcies. The principal articles provide for the cession and evacuatli-n of Cuba, i'orto Hlco and the Philippine Islands, und the political, administrative and financial results thereof; the uciiulreir.rnt by the United States of public property and the relln- qulshmcnt of archives. MHttm ofbpmilitli 0ul>jeeU, The articles of secondary importance determine the status of Spanish subjects remaining In the ceded territories und unfinished law suits and contracts; guarantees of the pame terms to Span- Kh (hipping und merchandise as Imposed upon American shipping and merchandise In the Philippine Inlands, for ten yearn, and leaving thu status of Spanish commerce In the Wont Indies to be settled luter. An Important provision Is the guarantee of religious freedom In the ceded territories, In the game terms us the Florida treaty, Ihu Americans having steadfastly refused to Incorporate any guarantee of the United States' determination to favor the property of the Catholic church, leaving It subject to the general laws on the name footing as private property.

Washington, Dec. 10.—Senator Kyle of South Dakota Is authority for the statement which, he declares, he make., on semi-official authority, that Japan has offered this government $200,000,001 for the Philippine islands. He says that there Is a distinct sentiment In of flcla! circles In fnvor of eventuall> turning the Islands over to Japan or t pome other power or powers. These statements are given Home weight by the fact that Senator Kyle had an Interview with the preslden concerning our policy In the Philip pines. Senator Kyle declares that hi will vote for a ratification of the peaci treaty, and that he considers it tlv duty of every senator to do EO. ; HI says he is opposed to having thi United States hold all the Islands per manently, and believes that this government should be satisfied with re tainlng some point in the islands as a naval base and coaling station.

Dec. 10.—Major Genera Wheeler will resign his seat in congres and retain his commission In the ann> General Wheeler said: "I have con sidered the matter carefully and havi decided to resign from congress and retain my commission. Mr reasons fo this step are many. It is probable tha bitter opposition would be raised if attempted to retain both positions, and 1 prefer to settle the matter In thi way.

Society of Virginia made a proposition for the body Marshal Treat answered: "No. sir, nothing less than an order from the attorney general of the United States will get It." Andersen was executed between 2 and 3 o'clock In the afternoon. Ktory of Amlcrflpn'ft Crimp. Andersen's crime has attracted widespread attention, being a sea tragedy of singular romance and atrocity. The schooner Oliver Pecker sailed from Boston laden with lumber for a point on the river Platte. Brazil. When 150 miles off the coast of Brazil, Andersen a Swede, had an altercation with the captain. When the latter retired to the cabin Andersen followed and shot the captain dead. Then he armed himself heavily and went on deck, where mounted on the forecastle, he terrorized all on hoard. The mute, who was aloft, was called down, and while pleading for his life, was shot four times Then the crew were ordered to throw the mate overboard, and on protesting that he was not dead, were assurei "that he was dead enough." This done the crew were marched below at the point of a pistol and ordered to-throv the captain's body overboard. Tried mid Convicted.

He was tried and coVivlcted In the United States court at Norfolk, Va., and a stubborn fight was made up to the supreme court, the conviction being confirmed The last move was an application foi a writ of habeas corpus on the ground that Andersen's constitutional rights were Invaded when the lower court assigned him counsel instead of giving; him counsel of his own choice. Chlel Justice Fuller, In announcing the court's opinion, said the record of the case showed that no fundamental right had been denied Andersen, but that he had been represented from first to last by able counsel.
