ey, when a correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press called upon him today, was
courteous and pleasant, but absolutely
declined to discuss the political situa
tion in the Philippine islands, on tiie
ground tbat his sphere was purely naval
Admiral Dewey always believed that
the insurgents were friendly.
A few influential Pbilipinos, in. their
ambition for self advancement, are
clamoring for independence, though un
able to realize its true meaning. They
are ntterly ignorant of the difference be
tween the name and the reality. Agi
tators here invariably admit tbat they
would be unable to stand without Amer
ican protection, but in spite of this they
continue their meaningless outcry for in
dependence, and niav pessibly create
The admiral, however, believes this to
be improbable at the present juncture,
though every trifling iocident counts.
Ilowever, every day that passes without
conflict means so much gain, because
the friendlv feeling is steadily increas

According to recent information re
ceived here, the Philipino insurgents
are endeavoring to maintain a brave

It is tbe opinion of our admiral tbat it
would be advisable for the United States
to pay the insurgent troops their ar

New Yobbt. Dec. 16. A dispatch
the Tribune from Washington says:
The navy department has not aban
doned the hope of rescuing tbe Maine
from Havana harbor and bringing the
wreck back to this country for rehabili
tation, nor does it seem likely, from the
interest taken by responsible wrecking
-experts, tbat the ChriBtobal Colon will
be permitted to pound to pieces on tbe
shore west of Santiago. The board of con
struction has under consideration a for
mal proposition for tbe salvage of both
thete Vessels, and their delivery ft New
York or fiich other port in the United
States as the government might select,
but no company will be allowed to be
gin operations on the vessel until a com
parison will be made between the offers
from several trustworthy concerns.
The Swedish Company, which is said
to be the most capable nd experienced
in the world, now has experts at work
on tbe Colon, making an investigation
into the difficulties involved in' her
salvage. ' Divers and engineers have
been brought lrom Europe especially for
this purpose, and after satisfying them
selves of the Colon's condition and tbe
expense that must be incurred in float
ing her, they will go to Havana and
examine tbe Maine.

The announcement of his death caused
great regret in the senate, as he was a
favorite with nearly all, possessing a
fund of good humor, was a good story
teller and a universally popular man
with senators on both sides of the
chamber. He was admired for his busi
ness and political skill, and for bis
abounding good humor, which never left
him on any occasion.
He was largely interested in railroad
enterprises, was rated a millionaire, and

DR WURTH'S OPINION
OF THE NEW DISCOVERY IN MED-
Remarkably Successful Remedy for
Dyspepsia, Indigestion and Stom
ach Troubles. .
Dr. Wurth in commenting on recent
discoveries in medicine said : There is
none which is certain to be so valuable
and far reaching in benefit as Stuart's
Dyspepsia tablets, tbe new stomach, rem
edy; I say far reaching, because
people little reanze now important a
sound stomach and vigorous digestion is
to every man, woman and child.
Indigestion is the starting point of
consumption, heart disease, Bright s
disease, diabetes, nervous prostration,
liver troubles; why is this so? simply
because every nerve, muscle and tissue
in our bodies is created and nourished
from the food we eat. . If tbat food is, by
reason of a weak stomach, cou pelted to
lie for hours, a sour, fermenting mass of
half digtsted food. It poisons the blood
and nervous system, creates gas which
distends the etonmch and bowels, caus
ing pressure on the heart, lungs and
other organs, and seriously impeding
He savs further, the point to direct at
tention is not the nerves, nor heart, nor
lungs, nor kidneys, but the stomach,tbe
nrst cause of all the mischief.
The remedv to nse for indigestion and
weak stomachs is not some cathartic,
but a remedy which will digest the food,
increase the flow of gastric juice, absorb
the gases, and Stuart's DyspepsiaTablets
will accomplish exactly this result in
any case of stomach trouble, because
these tablets are composed of the diges
tive acids, aseptic pepsin. Golden Seal
and bismuth, pleasant to taste, and not
being a patent medicine, can be used by
anyone with perfect safety. I believe
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will cure any
form of indigestion and stomach trouble
except cancer of tbe stomach.

sia Tablets are told by druggists at 50

James de Rothschild, M. P., is dead.
He was the second on of the late Barjn
Alphonse Rothschild. He was a mem
ber of parliament in the unionist, in

Renewed Efforts to Relieve Suffering
Among the Poor of Havana to Be
Made at Once.
Kkw Yobk, Dec. 17. A dispatch' to
the World from Havana says: The
Spanish troops will not be able to eva
cuate Havana by Christmas, as was ex
pected. A1 hough the soldiers have been
withdrawn from the suburbs already,
tbe city will be held until tbe last tno-
roent agreed on by tbe commissioners.
General Arol as said :
"Tbe Spanish government will try to
retire from all military poseseious by
December 28, but it will not be possible
for the Americans to take charge until
the specified time. The American offi
cials will go into the cujtom house be
fore that date, but Spain will still retain
control and be credited with the receipts
until the end of the year."
Richard G. Howland, who came here
as the representative of sundry relief as
sociation;, sailed for home today. He
had thoroughly investigated tbe condi
tions of the poor in Havana, and will re
port with a view to supplementing Red
CrosB work. His inquiries revealed
terrible state of affairs in town. At
least 30.000 people are practically des
titute, livinir in horrible hovels and
s filleted with all kinds of loathsome
diseases. Medical attention is needed
before even food, and the segregation of
those suffering from contagious com
plaints is imperative. Yellow fever is
rampant in the lower part of the city.
These cases are without medical atten
tion, and the first task of tbe new ad
ministration will be to remove the sick
and burn their present inhabitations.
The Peace Treaty.
Washington, Dec. 17. The president
will submit the peace treaty to the sen
ate during the present session, that
much has been definitely determined
upon. The text is still lacking here,
and, as tbe commissioners have not
thought proper to entreat the document
to the mails, it will not reacn wasnmg
ton before next Saturday. Although de
eirous of Dlacine it before the senate at
tbe earliest opportunity, the president
will not be able to do so until a week
after its receipt, for tbe reason tbat con
Kress will be in the holiday recess.
Meanwhile, tbe treaty will not do given
to tbe public Strong pressure has (been
broneht tolbear already to change this
decision, but strict observance ot the es
tablished custom in such cases will be
followed, in order to excite useless ani
mosity against tbe treaty on the part ot
sticklers for the observance of the court
esy due the senate..
Execution of Branton.
Eugene, Or., Dec. 17 Sbeeiff With
ers will be prepared to carry out tbe
order of the court in the matter of hang
ing Claud Branton next Friday. Prep
arations for the hanging has t een de
layed, as it was thought more than like
ly" that the court would grant a stay of
execution, but no order to that effect has
been made. This morning an order was
placed for tbe material necessary to pre
pare the scaffold. A space 85x40 feet on
tbe east side of the county iiil will-be
enclosed with a tight fence, 24 feet high,
and the path from the jail entrance to
this enclosure will be enclosed with a
high fence, to insure perfect safety. The
sheriff ia now besieged with requests for
invitations to tbe hanging.
Will Meet in Los Angeles.
Chicago, Dec. 17. The executive
committee of the National Educational
Association was in session, at the Great
Northern hotel today to'determine upon
some suitable place for the next meet
ing of the national conference, which iB
to be held July 10, 1899. The entire
afternoon was devoted to the discussion
of the matter. It was finally decided to
hold tbe convention in Lob Angeles. In
vitations had been received from other
western cities, including Portland and
Store Was Demolished.
Coiivallis, Or,, Dec. 16. An explo
sion of 50 pounds of gunpowder, kept in
stock, demolished the store of Kay &
& Son, at Dusty, 20 miles eontheaBt of
bere, this afternoon. Portions of tbe
walls were blown ont, the roof fell and
much damage was done, the extent of
which ia not yet known. Eight persons
were in the building, bnt all escaped,
only one being eligbtly injured. The
cause of the explosion is unknown.

Man Who Ran Amuck at Garfield Died
- By His Own Hand.
Garfield, Wash., Dec- 18. Elmer
Rumley, the young man from .Medford,
Or., who ended a wild ftpree bv Fltoonntr
himself through the head last night at 8
o'clock, died two hours later without
regaining coneciousness. . Iu the after-
noon he received a letter. He -told his
chums tbat his best girl had gone back
on him and that it meant to get on a big
drunk ; tbat he would take the town if
was- the last thing he ever did. True to
his promise, be got crazy drunk, and,
with revolver in hand, went up and
down the streets cursing and swearing,
sticking bis gun in the face of passers
by, creating a general panic. About 7 :30

It may be said on authority tbat Japan
needs the money ostensibly to meet a
deficit in her revenues produced by
heavy expenditures for land and sea
armament, and also to assist her in the
establishment of a national industry
bank. That is Japan's official explana
tion of her needs. In diplomatic circles
it is shrewdly suspected that Japau is
preparing herself with an ultimate strug
gle with Russia, and has been hurried
by the activity of Russia in borrowing
$55,500,000 to replace her artillery with
rapid firing guns.
It was learned at one of the legations
today that the-loan recently made in
France is only one-fourth of what Rus
sia actually needs, and tbat Russia Las
come to this country for assistance, be
cause she failed to get all she wished
lrom France. It is presumed that Japan
and Kus?ia between them will want
$400,000,000. . .

Nkw York, Dec. 19. A dispatch to
tbe World from Havana says:
The distributing of the relief ship Co
mal's cargo will begin Tuesday under
the direction of Lieutenant Lange, of
the First Louisiana volunteers. Food
supplies to the amount of one hundred
and fifty tons have been landed, and ar
rangements will be made with local
committees for distribution among the
poor of Havana.
The World correspondent accompanied
Lieutenant Lange on a tour of the city
to ascertain the actual condition of the
necessitous poor. At the Mczoro insane
asylum, a horrible state of affairs was
discovered. One hundred and twenty
inmates, emaciated and showing every
sign of starvation, are confined there.
Six months ago there were 800 in this
asylum, but death and starvation has
reduced tbm to about one-seventh of
the original number. The Spanish
government withdrew its grant, and al
though money was raised for the insti
tution, corrupt officials embezzled most
of it, leaving the patients destitute. A
large quantity of the Comal's food has
been handed over to them.
Several tenement-bonses near the Pa
rado, the fashionable drive of tbe city,
were visited. There, crowded in filthy
rooms over livery stables, tbe stench
from which filled the atmosphere, lived
more than twenty families. All kinds
of sickness were found, and lying in a
corner of one room were two persons
with yellow fever. They had no medical
attention, were withont even the com
mon necessities of life, and judging from
their condition had but a few hours to
Other inmates were similarly destitute
and suffering from disease bred by tilth
and hunger. 'Pinched and wan, they
blessed the approach of the American
relief with its hope of some alleviation
of their misery. .
