BOSTON Oct 29,-CorneItus I,. Alvord.
Jr., the absconding note tellor of the
First National Bank of New York City,
jrho 1b .charged with stealing 1700,000
from the bank, was arrested here this
aUernoon by Chief Inspector William B.
atts, of this city, and Detective Aim
strong; of New York, in an ordinary lodging-house
at the corner of "West Norton
street and Burlington avenue. When ar
rested, Alvord, who knew Detective Arm
strong, stated that he was glad the sus
pense was ended, and was willing to go
back to New York without papers. A
-hack was called, and he was driven to
police headquarters, and after being meas
ured and photographed under the Berti'
lon system, he was taken to New York on
the G o'clock train.
Inspector Walters, in an interview, stat

Sporty Bank Clerks Discharged.
NEW YORK, Oct 29. SInpo the an
nouncement of the embezzlement of Note
Teller Alvord. of the First National Bank,
there have been many stories of new and
rigid espionage by banking-houses over
their clerks. One of these stories' con
cerns the German Savings Bank. It was
reported last night that five of the clerks
of that institution have been discharge!
because detectives discovered that they
were associates of gamblers. Three of
them are said to have had an Interest
In a bookmaklnc firm that does business
at the local racetracks.
The story relates that detectives were
placed on the trail of all of the clerks In
the bank, and that the five in question
were the only ones about whom, anything
suspicious could be learned. It was not
said that the clerks had stolen anything
or that they contemplated any wrong
doing, but the Information Is to the ef
fect that the officers of the bank deemed
It best to get rid of them.
They Killed a Keeper and a Trusty
In an Effort to Escape.
NEW YORK, Oct. 29. Two colored pris
oners, in an attempt to escape from the
prison attached to the Seventh District
Court in West Fifty-fourth street, today,
killed Keeper Hugh McGovern, El years

The Boxschlcter Mystery.
NEW YORK, Oct 29. The only link
that seems to be lacklng,in the chain of
evidence against the alleged murderers
of Jennie Bosschieter, the Paterson mill
hand, is the identification of the purchaser
of the drug. There Is no question that j
she died from the effects-of chloral pois
oning', but it Is not known where the drug
was bought or hy whom it was obtained.
The police say that they know McAllster
tried to get a bottle refilled at Kent's
drug store on the evening of the tragedy,
anK they say that they have the affidavit
of one of the clerks there that he refused
to sell chloral to McAllster on that night
Tho police have been canvassing the list
of MoAlisters friends in drug stores.
There Is no law In New Jersey against
the sale of chloral.

MINES AGAIN WORKING
END OP THBT STRIKE IN THE PENNSYLVANIA-
Nearly Every Colliery Was In Fall
Blast Yesterday Fevr 'Dispute
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29. Today wit
nessed an almost general resumption of
work In the anthracite region, where for
six weeks the ,mlneworkers have been on
strike for an advance in wages, a reduc
tion in the price of powder and in sev
eral districts the abolition of the sliding
scale of wages. In a few Instances col
lieries operated by Individuals and small
companies have failed to resume.
The Philadelphia & Reading Coal & Iron
Company, which controls over 20 per
cent of the output of the anthracite re
gion and which is the largest operating
company in tho hard coal field, today re
ceived word from General Superintendent
Luther at Pottsville that 37 of the 39 col
lieries operated by that company are
working. The two collieries not in oper-.
wion ioaay are tne west nenanaoan ana
the Henry Clay, The former.according to
local authorities, did not resume owing
to the construction of new breaker. The
Henry Clay, it was stated, was idle be
cause the abandonment of that mine is
contemplated. With the resumption of
the Reading collieries, it is admitted that
further opposition to the demands of the
mlneworkers Is useless and It is the be
lief of officials that In a few days those
operators who have not acceded to the
demands of the miners convention will
have done so.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
which operates nine collieries, also re
ceived favorable reports today. But one
of Its mines failed to resume; the William
Penn, in the Schuylkill region. The com
pany has, since the first offer of an ad
vance In wages by the operators, re
frained from making a statement as to
what course it would pursue and -when
notices were posted by other operators
that the Scranton demands would be
granted, this company still maintained
Its silence. The men, however, were giv
en to understand that the company would
make no formal promises to them while
they remained on strike, but on their
return to work the company would treat
with them the same as. any other oper
ator. The men at the William Penn col
liery decided that unless notices were
posted promising the increase until April
1, none would report for work. It Is be
lieved that the men will return after Pres5
Ident Mitchell of the United Mlneworkers
has, assured them that tho Pennsylvania
company will keep faith.
At the office of the Lehigh Coal &
Navigation Company, a statement was
made that the 10 collieries operated by
that company are working as usual.
IN HAZLE7TON DISTRICT.
Operations Were Resumed at a Ma

HAZDETON, Pa., Oct. 29.-Operatlons '
were resumed this morning at a majority

The strike Is still on at the mines of
the Lehigh & Wllkesbarre Coal Com
pany, located at Audenreid, Honoy

derstanding. All hands will probably be

llery that did not resume is the one at
Mllnesville, where no demands have been
granted at all. Before the strike began
this company threatened to abandon this
mine and It seems that tho threat will be
carried out The 50 men employed at
Tyler & McTurk's Stockton washery re
fused to work because they alleged they
were offered only a 5 per cent Increase In
wages. A. Pardee & Co., having filled the
places of six "lokle" runners, the miners
refused1 to go back to work at Cran
berry until their runners were reinstated
and. In consequence, the colliery Is Idle.
Matters are shaping themselves tonight
for a settlement of the difficulty at the
Lehigh & Wllkesbarre Company's col
lieries and work will be resumed on a
satisfactory basis some time during the
week. The trouble at Cranberry will also
be settled and the men will be back at
work on Wednesday.
A number of collieries were crippled
today on account of a shortage of water
caused by the prevailing drought.

. THAT STANDING ARMY.
Many Military Posts in, United States
Have Been Abandoned.
WASHINGTON, Oct 23. It has be
come the fashion of the Democratic ora
tors to rail at the regular and standing
Army. The candidate for Govornor of
New York on the Democratic ticket, Mr.
Stanchfield, said In a speech recemtly
that tho regular Army was a menace,
and that tho safety of the Nation was
in tho volunteer Army. Of course, this
man betrayed this ignorance In not know
ing that there 13 practically no difference
between tho volunteer and the regular
forces at the present time. The regular
forces are continued by enlistments, and
the volunteer force is to be disbanded at
a certain stipulated time. The fact is
that the regular Army is aa much volun
teer aa ary other Army that volunteers.
The enlistments are wholly voluntary,
and, not only that, tho term of enlist
ment is but three years, and at the end
of that time a man does not need to re
enlist if he has other inclinations. Even
the officers are wholly volunteers. There
is no compulsion for them to go to West
Point, no compulsion for them to remain,
in the Army after they have entered it.
They are volunt'oers aa much as tho vol
unteer officers of any establishment, and
can resign at any time.
Candidate Bryan, in reviling the Army
and criticizing the establishment of mili
tary posts, ought 'to have known during
his term in Congress that there has been
o, movement to abandon a great many of
the military posts throughout the coun
try. But whenever such a proposition
was on foot, it was vigorously opposed by
tho Senators and Representatives of the
state, whether they were Democrats, Re
publicans or Populists. The fact is no
one in Congress representing tho people
ever seemed to see any menace- In a mili
tary post near a town. There has always
beon an effort to create military posts.
The people of a community want them,
and they never want them abandoned and
turned over to the civil authorities.
When Bryan speaks of a fear of a
military post, he is a demagogue, pure
and simple. What possible fear do the
people of St Paul and Minneapolis have
of a military post at Fort SneMng, or the
people of Chicago on account of a mili
tary poet at Fort Sheridan, or the peo
plo of Portland of the military post at
Vancouver and Fort Stevens? Is there a
single person in the City of Portland that
would want the military post removed
from "Vancouver? There was not a sin
gle voice raised by the people of Seattle
and the adjoining territory in opposition
to the establishment of a military post
there, and, on the contrary, everybody
was anxious to have it established. The
same is tho case at Spokane. To the peo
ple living in the vicinity of a military
post It must be that Bryan made himself
CAN GET NEAR WATER.
Only Sheen Corrals Must Be
Yards From a Stream.
WASHINGTON, Oct 25. One of the
most welcome orders that has been Is
sued by the Interior Department In years
Is that of recent dale, which directs, all
superintendents of forest reservations
that hereafter herds of cattle- and horses
Bhall not necessarily be corralled 500 yards
or more from all running streams and
springs. Under this new ruling corrals
I ma' established directly on the banks
. or streams u it is so desirea, mit oniy
in the case of horses- and cattle. Sheep
are not Included in this new ruling, and
will not be.
This new order waa brought about
largely through the efforts of Senator
Wolcott, of Colorado. For some time past
the cattlemen, of his state have been be
sieging him to take the matter up with
the department, which he did. The whole
case was investigated, principally by Gov
ernor Richards, the Assistant Commls
sioner of the Land Office, and it was
found 'that the arbitrary practice of tho
past was really without any good reason
behind it, and the matter was so ex
plained to the Secretary.
The difficulty arose through a shbrtcom
ing in the Land Office. It seems that the.
Land Office has but one set of blank ap
plications for permits to graze on forest
reservation, and these were drawn up for
sheep only. Later it was decided that
cattle and horses should also be allowed
to graze, but permits would be necessary,
and instead of having new blanks printed,
the old sheep applications were used, and
tho word "sheep" was stricken out and
"horses and cattle" Inserted in its place.
It thus happened that the restriction
which prohibited the corralling o'f sheep
within 500 yards of any stream was also
made to apply in the cose of cattle and
horses, without any Intent to "do bo on the
part of the department
It Is now proposed to Issue new' blank
applications for the cattlemen, which will
eliminate the 500-yard prdvlslon. This
new order of things will prove -a great
boon to the cattlemen in all parts of tho
West, for it is known that some of tho
best pasture lands lie directly along the
streams, and have heretofore been cut off
very largely. The department Is satisfied
that this new regulation will not result
In any damage to the water supply, but
that a similar extension to tho sheepmen
wbuld1 prove disastrous. It Is possible
that in the future the entire system of
permits may be abolished, as up to the
present time no application for a grazing
permit has ever been refused. However,
this Is a matter to 6e decided later. The
present "ruling removes the only real ob
jectionable feature of tho old permit sys
tem. Naval Gunnery Practice.
NEW YORK, Oct 29. Important action
for tho improvement of gunnery practice
has been taken by the Navy Department
upon tho recommendation of Bear-Admiral
Crownlnshleld, Chief of the Bureau
of Navigation, says a Herald special
from Washington. The department has
issued a general order extending the
course in gunnery instruction to each
squadron of the Navy.
The new order establishes an "Inspector
of target practice" who shall be present
at the "fighting efficiency practice" pro
vided, and submit a comprehensive report
thereon. It also constitutes a board of
qfficers to be known as the Board of Gun
nery Instructions, 'who will select sub
ject to the approval of the commanding
officer members of the gun crews to take
gunnery Instruction courses.
Preliminary instruction will be given;
then final practice with small arms. " Then
sub-caliber practice will be held, and Aen
the preliminary target practice ship's gun
pointers will be selected, and those Wav
ing the highest percentage will be de
tailed at the earliest opportunity for the
advanced course provided for on board
a gunnery training-ship.

THE PLAIN TRUTH WINS
AND, IT, IS JUST AS WELL TO BE ENTIRELY , FRANK ABOUT TELLING IT
The Remarkable Success of Drs. Copeland and Montgomery Is Due to Their Superior Skill and
Experience as Practitioners and Specialists, Their System of Low, and Uniform. -
Charges and Their Faithful, Honest and Conscientious Work in the Office.
Until the innovation made by
Drs. Copeland and Montgomery
in placing medical skill and
thorough and scientific treat
ment for all diseases within
reach of all, by a system of low
and uniform prices,, it was al
most impossible for people in
moderate circumstances to ob
tain the aid of skillful and con
scientious specialists. The fact
that in spite of their well-established
and fairly earned reputa
tion for honest work, skillful
treatment and successful re
sults, they still maintain their
low and uniform charges; that
they aim not alone at financial
success as practitioners, but as
well at the accomplishment of
the greatest amount of possible
good in the community.
We have heard in tho past,
and still hear, for that matter,
many complaints over the ex
orbitant fees charged by per
sons claiming to be specialists
in throat and lung troubles. J.t
Is not only true that Drs. Cope
land and Montgomery charge
the low and uniform fee of
$5 a Month for Medicines
But that a cure under their sys
tem of treatment is more cer
tain and more rapidly obtained
than under any other known
method and what is better still,
their results are permanent, as
shown by continual reference
to cases printed years ago and reaffirmed by the patients
Skill and success in the practice of medicine can be no
longer estimated by the size of the fees, when specialists
having the largest practice and the highest and best reputa
tion for honest skillful and successful work, place their fees
so low as to be within the reach of all classes and' conditions

which the disease extended or the amount

different remedies and spent a great deal
of money In trying to get rid of it, but
all to no purpose, for, as I said above,
tho disease gradually grew worse and ex

me, and I felt discouraged and probably

CHINESE AS COLONISTS.
What They Have Done in the Phil
ippines and the Baat Indies.
In the middle of the 17th century one
Keuseng, or Koxinga, a Chinese chief
that had refused to surrender to the Tar
tars, invaded Formosa at the head of an
army of 100,000 men, attacking and driv
ing out the Dutch. In 1C62 he opened cor
respondence with the Chinese in Manila,
and tho Spanish Governor, fearing treach
ery, slaughtered 40,000 of them as a hint
to the survivors that any more friendly
doings with General Koxinga would moet
with his displeasure. In the latter hall
of the 1700s they were massacred by
thousands In Papanga Province. But In
spite of this Spanish method of dealing
with tho Chinese question there wero

A few years ago It was rare to meet
with a native of London who could swim,
but this condition of things is rapidly
changing. In connection with all board
schools are swimming clubs, and onco a
week, at least, Doth lads and lasses are
taken to one of the adjacent swimming
baths and taught the art of natation. In
the St. Bride's Institute swimming is
taucht as one of the subjects, and there
I are no less than 700 who go steadily
through the course during the session.
Nearly half of this number are females;
mostly engaged In the pstofHce. and
among them are many expert swimmers.
Up the Thames, too, between Teddlngton
and Windsor, from the houseboats and
riverside residences, swimming is con
stantly indulged In by both sexes.

of people. Under such condi
tions It is plainly the skillful
and faithful work of these spe
cialists In tho flrgt place that
causes their pronounced pros
perity and success. Others may
In some measure try to follow
their linos, but " " :
They 'Cannot Imitate
The superior education, train
ing an,d experience which haa
given them their acknowledged
mastery over the diseases In
their specialties, and make it
possible for them to carry their
practice permanently and .suc
cessfully at such rates. ,
You cannot advertise a man
into .a specialist. Training, ex
perience and skill must come
first, and then your advertising
will have the merit of genuine
ness and truthfulness and will
succeed. This is the secret oi.
the whole matter. This i3 the
secret of tho failure of so
many. They are advertlsflrs
first: specialists afterward. Tho
order must be reversed; special
ists first, qualified by a regular
medical education, and by spe
cial study, training and expe
rience; then advertise.
There is no other way to se
cure permanence, public confi
dence and success, and thosj
who try any other way will fail.
Poorly and partially trained
men may by specious, un
truthful advertising or repre
sentations, and by charging large fees for a short tlmo de
ceive the public and make money, but It la only a question
of time when the offense Is discovered and universal contempt
is their Teward. Genuine skill, genuine experience, perma
nent location, skillful and successful treatment, low and uni
form fees; this today Is the only pathway by which the spe
cialist may obtain sucess and public confidence.

NO WIT IN GREAT SPEECHES
Immortal "Words of Famous Mea Deal
With the Serlonanena of Tilings.
In an article on "Public Speaking,"" in
the Saturday Evening Post, United States
Senator Albert J. Beverldge says:
"It Is a remarkable thing that there Is
neither wit nor humor In any of the Im
mortal speeches that have fallen from the
lips of man. To find a Joke in Webster
would be an offense. The only things
which Ingersoll wrote that will live aro
his oration at his brother's grave and
hl3 famous "The Past Rises Before Mo
Like a Dream." But in neither of these
productions of this genius of Jesters Is
thero a single trace of wit. There Is not
a funny sally In all Burke's speeches.
Lincoln's Gettysburg address, hl3 first and
second Inaugurals, his speech beginning
the Douglas campaign, and his Cooper
Union address In New York are, perhaps,
the only utterances of his that will en
dure. Yet this greatest of story-tellers
since Aesop did not adorn or deface one
of these great deliverances with story or
any form of humor.
"The reason for this Is found In tho
whole tendency of human thought and
feeling In the whole melancholy hlstorv
of the race where tears and grief, the
hard seriousness of life and the terrible
and speedy certainty of our common fate
of suffering and of death make somber
the master-cord of existence. The Im
mortal things are all serious even sad;."

gest and is disliked by many.
supplies the fat in a form
pleasant to take and easy
to digest. It strengthens the
nerves and muscles, invig
orates mind and body, and
builds up the entire system.
