who was the commander of President

The American commission, as a whole,
it regarded as an exceptionally strong
body, being made op of men well known,
not only in public and political life, but
in the world of letters and international
affairs. They are all men of scholarship,
fine linguists, and those attainments
helpful in a congress representing the
nations cf the world, conducted under
the diplomatic naagea which makes

Will Return with Members of the
Philippine Commission.
Ciiicaoo, April 7. 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. An
Intimation has been conveyed to him,
quite unofficially, of course, that work of
the navy In the Philippines is over, so
far as fleet movements are concerned,
and that the minute he asks for thore
duty the request will be granted.
It It understood Admiral Dewey it
ready to come home so far as naval du
ties are concerned, hut he prefers to
Mulsh the work of the Philippines com
misrion and come home with Chairman
rh-hrnman ami ex-Minister Penny.
Within a short time the rainy season
will prevent active military operations,
ao that the commission will settle down
to a consideration of the civil adminis
trative feature of the problem.
It is believed that the commission will
be ready to sail, possibly by July 1, and
certainly before September I.

Reel Drowned.

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. 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.

Mr. McGuire leaves wife, who is the
daughter of Bailiff Stuart, of Judge Fra

of which is fifteen.
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

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
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

desiions of resuming peacelul pursuits,
and though the proclamation isioicd by
the United States Philippine commission

the war is far from ended. One of the

Philippines before the Americans control

Florence Packard, who live ia
Greenback valley, liiln county, Ariz.,
has a remarkable re-eorel as a hunter cf
