The man on the stage who does th
trick of escaping from firmly tied ropes,
submits t6 the bonds with a smile. He
knows he can get out of the ropes that
are being knotted. Put the same man in
the woods and let Indian captors bind
him to a tree for torture and he would
struggle to the last against the bonds.
When the stomach is diseayed there
are bonds being woven every hour about
the organs dependent on the stomach
heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. The
folly of mankind is to passively submit
to the fastening of these bonds with no
effort to escape until the pain they cause

cures diseases of heart, liver, lungs. kid

. Opposition in Party.
President Roosevelt has made mis
takes which are grounds for legitimate
opposition and attack. He has handled
the neuro question with lack of discret
ion. The hostile view is that he tried
to gain delegates by coddling the negro ;
we prefer to assnme that it wa a chiv
alric, if. mistaken, idea which impelled
him to open an insoluble problem in
soluble by any political action.
President Roosevelt in the Panama
business has discarded all his ideals, has
violated the principles and precedents
of the republic. Preaching exalted jus
tice, constantly declaring with the ut
most emphasis on all occasions that
the ideas of justice and morality are just
as closely applicable to the conduct of
Governments as tojprivate conduct, he
has approved despoliation of a friendly
republic an attack which, in its ele
ments and results, was strictly piratical
and in the attempted justification for
the act has in effect cited our great need
of the stolen goods, thus informing the
world that our national virtue it not
strong enough to resiet a very high
Millionaire's Poor Stomach.
The worn-out stomach of the over fed
millionaire if often paraded in the public
prints as a horrible example of the evils
attendant on the possession - of great
wealth. But millionaires are not the
only ones who are -afflicted with bad
stomachs. The proportion is far greater
among the toilers. Dyspepsia and in
digestion are rampant among these
people, and they suffer far worse tortures
than the millionaiie unless they avail
themselves of a standard medicine like
Green'B August Flower, which has been
a favorite household remedy for all
etomach troubles for over thirty five
years. . August Flower louses the torpid
iiver, thus creating appetite and insur
ing perfect digestion. It tones and
vitalizes the system and make life orth
living, no matter what your station.

, touching "Accidental"
' Presidents, J
New York Herald.
One of the most astute politicians of
modern times, Benjamin Disraelli, de
clared tnat "precedent embalms a prin
cipal." In our own history it is unbroken pre
cedent that no Vice President advanced
to the Chief Magistrate's cbair has ever
dominated his party or succeeded to the
office by the votes of the people. Will
Mr. Roosevelt be an exception?
The question becomes peculiarly in
teresting in view ol the facts cited in
our columns yesterday by a correspond
ent, wh ) pointed out that the present
political situation is not unlike that
before the election of 1892, when for the
first time in more than a third of a
century control of all branches of the
Government passed in o the hands of
An article in our columns yesterday
briefly sketched the history of the four
Vice Presjdents who in the past begin
ning with John Tyler and ending with
Oheeter A. Arthur acceded t irouith
the death of the elected Chief Magis
trate. The Brooklyn Eagle of last even
ing takes this article as the text for a
long leader, in which it says: "The
Hir ld errs in regarding these i ist: neee
as conclusive against Mr. Roosevelt's
ambition." As a matter of fact, the
Herald made no deductions whatever,
but merely set out the facts. The con
clusion has unconsciously been drawn
from them by our amiable contemporary
for itself. It BtriveB to differentiate the
position of the present incumbent from
that of former V'ce Presidents who ao
ceded to the Chief Magistrate, and
"Foi better or worse, Roosevelt and
Republicanism are one. There are Re
publicans who wish tnat it Were not so.
Wishing, however, does not alter the
facts Mr. Roosevelt and fcis party are
inseparable. The next President of the
United States will be Theodore Roose
velt or a Democrat. "

Rheumatism, which does its terrible work
in the muscles, joints, and tissues, is caused by
uric acid which gathers in the blood. To get
rid of this poisonous acid which produces the
irritations, pains, agonies, inflammations, and
swellings peculiar to rheumatism, Paine's
Celery Compound should be used without
delay. No other medicine gives such prompt',
cheering, and happy results. It is the only
medicine that prevents a return of the dreaded
disease. Paine's Celery Compound braces
the nerves, the blood is quickly cleared of all
irritating poisons, tissue and muscle are built
up, and the digestive organs perfectly toned.
Do not treat with indifference the slightest
rheumatic symptoms; the early use of Paine's
Celery Compound will save you weeks and
months of suffering. Mr. S. D. Conway,
St. Louis, Mo., was ' permanently cured by
Paine's Celery Compound after repeated fail
ures with other medicines and physicians; he
" I am 64 years of age, and have lived in
St. Louis 27 years, and all this time with the
exception of three years, I have served in the
Engineers' Department as Inspector. Last
winter I contracted rheumatism and was laid
up. I tried all remedies and doctors, hut all
failed until I struck Paine's Celery Compound,
which has made a permanent cure in my case.
I have recommended it to many, and they
have used it with the same result."

that "Roosevelt and Hepublicanisin are
one in view ol the very many Repub
licans "who wish that it were not so,"
and in view also of his Democratic per
sonal tendencies and of the hostility he
has excited in the great corporate and
financial interests which dominate his
party, and upon which in past campaign
it has relied for 'thj sinews of war."
In view of the enmities he has aroused
among these powerful interests within
bis party and the distrust excited in its
conservative elements it would seem not
at all certain that he will be nominated,
although our transpontine contempor
ary assumes that it Is certain in assert
ing that "the next President will be
Theodore Roosevelt or a Democrat."
That is a suggestive phrase "or a
Democrat." The resentment of in e
pendent Republicans against the course
of the majority in Congress during the
last few 'years and the dissensions with
in the party in this and other states give
the Democrats brighter prospectB than
they they had for many years. As the
Herald's correspondent "Jackson''
yesterday pointed out, the struggle be
tween the Piatt and Odell factious pre
sents them with the best opportunity
they have had since 1892 of carrying this
state. Delaware's Republican oligarchy
is rent with dissensions. In Illinois
there is intense dissatisfaction with the
state administration. Maryland has
a k ai n parsed com pletel y i n to co n t rol of
the Democrats. Rhode Island has twice
elected a Democratic Govern r. In
Indiana the Democrats have carried
several cities held by the Republicans
since the outbreak of Bryanism, and
they have carried all important city
elections in Connecticut, while Boston
is about to re elect a Democratic Mayor,
almost without opposition.
In short, the Conditions are snch as to
impart a peculiaY interest to the histori
cal fact that no "accidental" President
has ever been elected to succeed him
self and to suggest that there is a prin
cipal en.balmed in this unbroken prece
dent. Fight Will Be Bitter.

ears against the continual recommenda

THE STAMP1 OF TRUTH.
Oregon City Residents Know it Well.
There is the stamp of truth on a state
ment endorsed by people we know, by
our neighbors. The following ex peri,
ence of a citizen is but one case of Bcores
right here at home.
B. Meredith, the Portland brick ma
ton, contractor and builder, who lives at
561 21st street, says: "Doan's Kidney
Pills is one of the best remedies I ver
used and I cheerfully recommend t em
to anyone suffering with kidney tiouble.
I was bothered for years with attacks of
kidney complaint, and no medicine gave
me permanent relief until I procured
Doan's Kidney Pills. I aa so well
pleased with it.that when my wife had
severe attack a short time ago. and could
hardly get around to do her work, I bad
her take Doan's Kidney Pills. In two
or three days they Btraightened her up
in fine shape. We both erdorse the
claims made for Doan's Kidney Pills
and have nothing but the bighettt terms
of praise for eucn a valuable remedy."
