A MODERN MIRACLE
"Tiuly miraculous seemed the recovery
of Mrs. Mollis Holt of this place," writes
J. O. R. Hooper, Woodford. Tenn- "she
was so wasted by coughing up pus from
her kings. Doctors declared her end so
near that her family had watched by her
bed-side forty-eight hours; when, at my
urgent request Dr. King's New Discovery
was given her, and with the astonishing
result that improvement began, and con
tinued until she finally completely recov
ered, and la healthy woman today.

To dispel the idea entertained in many
quarters that the prosecution of the men
now confined in jail for the murder of
Governor Steunenberg is a conspiracy
lutchad by certain moneyed interests, Gov
ernor Gooding has issued a letter in which
he says that the prosecution' is being
carried on legitimately without favor, and
detectives employed are paid their ex
penses and usual fees but are not working
for any promised reward.
As to the confession secured from Or
chard, the letter states Detective McPar
land visited him and informed him who he
was and asked him to tell the truth about
the matter. No promise of any character
was made, and Orchard fully expects to
pay the penalty of the crime to which he
has confessed. The letter continues: "He
nM mtnrv nt the ennnniracv and murder
against ex-Governor Steunenberg, so re
volting in every detail as to almost be un
believable. He gave descriptions of other
crimes, in which he had been interestod,
or of which he had heard, and from Jhese
descriptions and other data furnished by
Orchard, the state was enabled to gather
a mass of evidence so strong that 1 was
compelled by my oath of office and by my
feelings as a man and a citizen to ask the
arrest and extradition of Moyer, Haywood,
It further stated that . the confession
from Adams was secured in the same
manner, no hope of immunity being held
out to him. Governor Gooding emphatic
ally states the accused will have a fair
and impartial trial. N
' WHITNEY RECOMMENDED
J. R. Whitney, candidate for renomina
tion to the office of state printer, is a man
worthy of the office for which he aspires.
and inasmuch as his predecessors have
been given two terms in the state printing
office we can see no reason why Mr.
Whitney should not ba renominated at the
primary election. His -work has given
universal satisfaction in all cases and the
affairs of the office have been conducted
as economically during his term of office
as they have ever been or probably ever
will be under the present system. We be
lieve that the people of this state owe the
position to Mr. Whitney, and the Appeal
recommends him to the Republican voters
of this section for their careful considera
tion. Silverton Appeal.
Will be paid for information leading to
the arrest and conviction of any person

band of outlaws known as the Black

WORST IN TORT Y YEARS
For this time of the year, this has been
the most severe weather in this county
lince 1866, when the thermometer on
the 10th. of this month registered 10
oelow zero and the snow fall was in
axcess of two feet " Such was the
remark made today by Mr. 'A. C.Hun
tington Of this city, who distinctly recalls
the occasion. If kind nature waits
another forty years before breaking
another record, well and good.
