A special to the Tribune from Washington says: With in a lew months Admiral Dewey will be back on American toil, if all goes well, and will then be given the welcome he earned nearly a year ago In Manila bay. He will not be recalled, as such action might he construed as a mark of dissatis faction with Ms recent actions, and niiht encourage the Filipinos.

" DROWNED IN THE UMPQUA Fish Cjinmissioner McGnire ani Senator Reel Drowned. BOAT UPSET IN RAPIDS Rowlock Broke and the Frail Craft Was Soon Swamped-Helpless In Seeth ing Waters The Men Had Been Warned That Their Trip Was a Hazardous One. RosKBCHQ, Or., April 8 Hollister D. McGuire, fish commissioner of Oregon, and A. W. Reed, state senator from Doug las county, were drowned in the North Umpqua river, opposite Biverdale farm, six miles below Roseburg, this morning The bodies have not been recovered. Messrs. Red and McGuire, ac companied by W. F. Hu Voard, who hat charge of the Clackamas hatchery, went down the North Umpqua to lrcate a site for a hatchery, intending to return this evening. All three came to this city with Governor Geer, Secretary of State Dunbar and Ahjutant-General Tuttle on business onnected with the ha'chery location and the Oregon Soldiers' Home. Messrs. McGuire, Reed and Hubbard went by freight train to Winchester, where they boarded a small boat for the junction of the rivers, six miles below Roseburg. Governor Gecr and General Tuttle went to the Soldiers' Home, and Secretary Dunbar left for Astoria today. Details of the Drowning. Alter viewing tbe river in the vicinity of Winchester, Messrs. McGuire, Rerd and Hubbard look a boat and proceeded down the river, which is a wild, rapid stream. When nearing the first falls, they pulled the boat ashore and McGuire and Reed got out and walked around the falls. Mr. Hubbard took the boat over the falls, and the other two again got in. About one mile further down are the long rapids, about one-half mile in length and one can tee them only short !k tance. The roar of the water firs' an nounces oue't approach. On ht irina the warning tound they undertook to row ashore, when a rowlock broke r.! d tbe next moment they were in the w.'.te.. Commissioner McGuire and Mr. ITul bard started to swim ashore. Sen.it r Reed being unable to swim, clung to the upturned boat. When about half way t ) shore, Hubbard looked over hit shoul der and saw McGuire swimming after him and Reed upon the boat. When he reached the shore he looked again, and both had dissappeared. Neither hat yet been found. Searching partiea are out with ropes, lanterns and grappling hooks. Tbe accident was most unfortunate, as Senator Reed't wife expected to meet him here tonight. People at Winchester who know the treacherous waters of the North Umpqvt warned McGnire, Retd and Hubbard of the danger, and advised them not to un dertake so hazardous a trip. They were warned the second time when they were about to get in the boat after Mr.-Huh-bard had taken it over the first rapids. The North Umpqua leoneof the swift est runnl.ig streams in Oregon. Mr. McGuire leaves wife, who is the daughter of Bailiff Stuart, of Judge Fra xer'i court, and five children, the eldest of which is fifteen. WHEN WORK IS DONE Oregon Soldiers Not In a Hurry to Re turn Home. Wanimnoton, April 7. Senator Mc Bride was at the war department today discussing with Adjutant-General Cor bin the subject of bringing home the Oregon volunteers. The senator suggests that as It will take several montht to bring home all the yolunteert, it will be well to have preparations ma it to start early with those that are not needed. He had a letter from Colonel Summers, of tbe Second Oregon, written since the fighting against the insurgents, began, saving that as long as there wat any fighting to be done, the Oregou regiment ..'as willing to stay and defend the flag, but when it was over, the bora would all be willing to come home. If General Otis decide that the volunteers can be spared, tbe Oregon reaiment, bring one of the first to go, ill be one of the first to return, as General Corbin told Sena t r McBride the return would be in that order.

Many People Ridicule the Idea of an Absolute Cure for Dyspepsia and Stomach Troubles. Bldlcule, However, la Not Argument, and Facta are Stubborn Things, Stomach troubles are so common and in most cases, so obstinate to cure that peopleare apt to look with suspicion on any remedy claiming to be a radical, permanent enre for dyspepsia and in digestion. Many such pride themselves on their acuteness in never being hum bugged, especially in medicines. This fear of leing humbugged can .be carried too far, so far, in fact, that many people suffer for years with weak diges tion rather than risk a little time and money in faithfully testing the claims made of a preparation so reliable and universally used as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Now Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are vastly different in one important respect from ordinary proprietary meaicinet for the reason that they are not a secret patent medicine, no secret Is made of their ingredients, but analysis shows them to contain the natural digestive ferments, pure aseptic pepsin, tbe diges tive acids, Golden Seal, bismuth, hy- drastis and nux. They are not cathartic, neither do they act powerfully on the organ, but tiiey cure indigestion on tbe common tense plan of digesting the food eaten thoroughly before it has time to ferment, tour and cause the mischief. This is the only secret of tbeir success. Cathartic pills never have and never can cure indigestion and stomacL troubles because tbey act entirely on the bowels, whereat the whole trouble is really in the stomach. Stuart's Dytpepsia Tablets taken after meals digest tbe food. That is all there it to it. Food not digested or half diges ted is poison at it createa gat, acidity, headaches, palpitation of tbe heart, loss of flesh and appetite and mauy other troubles which are often called by tome other name. 1 hey are sold by druirgists everywhere at 50 cents per package.

Manila, April 7, via Hong Kong, A pi 11 10. -Though hundreds of Filipinos are daily returning to their homes and are desiions of resuming peacelul pursuits, and though the proclamation isioicd by the United States Philippine commission has given an impulse to tl.U movement, the war is far from ended. One of the foremost American generals suid recent ly: "We will see 100,000 soldiers in the Philippines before the Americans control the islands," and a majority of the army ofllcers are of his opinion. It It generally considered that great reinforcements are necessary, there not being a sufficient number of American troops in the archipelago to make con BAKING co., nfw vok. quest of the island of Luaoa and hold those occupied ; and it it thought that It would be cheaper in the long run and have a better effjet on the natives to establish American supremacy effect n tlly than to temporize with a scorn of rebellions.

That Ie the Small Kind Hunter Pack ard Kllla the llraete In. Arieona With. Florence Packard, who live ia Greenback valley, liiln county, Ariz., has a remarkable re-eorel as a hunter cf mountain lions. He bus killed scores of them, and last .tear uloue his rcoor.! was 33 soalps. The mountain lions of Arizonn ure most destructive to herd of horses nnd cattle.. The risk of life mid difficulties ntteiuling Ihcir destruc tion has. cnused the lions to be more numerous than one would suppose, ami If it were not for the bounty paid by tbe county, the stockmen would ho short on their cattle n ad horses. Much) of the count surrounding Packard' ranch is made up of irregular ranges of broken mountain. In the last 12 months Mr. Packard bns brought to (ilolie, besides 33 lions. n few bears, wildcats, coons and foxes. The dogs for this work nre n crota be tween the fox nnd bloodhound.

The two younger nre joked logether, another ij trained as tout, whose work ia tc go nhend and around for the went l lion or bear, and when the scent found the oldect dog is put on the track, and, to his credit, it is said, never fails to find the nnimnl. Packard says he has frequently followed this dog over 15 mile before the lion waa found. Up to thia date 71 lion scalps are to the credit of thia dog. The dog is not a fa-st trailer, but very cnrifol. and, consid ering t'he roughness of the country, the dog is remarkable.
