CAPE TOWN. Nov. 9 General Knox
gives great credit to the determination
of 'Colonel Lcgalkis never to lose 'touch

the valuable work of the Canadians" in
frustrating the attempts of -the Boors to

dent Brooks' Report.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.-Captain H. M.
Brooks, Superintendent of Foreign Malls,
says In his annual report that there were
8,325,09 pounds of mall matter disnatchea
by sea to foreign countries durlrtg the
last fiscal year. Of this, 5.072,433 pounds
were -for trans-Atlantic destinations, al
most 2,500.000 pounds going to Great Brit
ain. The transatlantic malls Increased
429.847 pounds over the preceding year.
The aggregate cost of the foreign mall
service was $2,158,033. It Is estimated that
$4,318,804 was received by the Postofnce
Department as postage on articles ex
changed with foreign countries. Captain
Brooks says the rule under which the
mails for transatlantic destinations were
for many years assigned to the fastest
vessels available for their conveyance had
not been rigidly adhered to during the
year Just closed, preference having been
given to vessels flying the flag of the
United States. The department's record
of the steamers which carried malls for
transatlantic points last year shows that
the Kaiser Wllhelm der Grosse, In 153.7
hours, made the quickest trip between
the New York and London postofllces,
with the Lucanla, 159.6 hours, next; while
La Champagne, 197.6, and La Bretagne,
199 5, made the quickest trips between
New York and Paris. The parcels post
malls dispatched to the United States
during the year aggregated 13S.19S pound3,
an Increase of 2S 52 per cent oVer tho
previous year. The report makes a strong
plea for an International parcels post
servloe. The report says no tidings have
ever been received of the steamer Liver
no, of Sloman's Brazil line, which sailed
February 27 last from New York for Rto
de Janeiro, with malls for Braz'l
The report embraces statistics fur

VAN YCK'S LETTER.
Republicans Said to Have Sup
pressed It Until After Election.
NEW TORK, Nov. 9. In connection
with the answer of Mayor Van Wyck to
the charges against him,' filed witlr Gov
ernor Roosevelt regarding his alleged im
proper connection with the American Ice
Company the World today "prints' a
telegram 'purporting' to 'have been sent
by B. B. Odell, chairman bf the Repubr
SALISBURY '
; lican State Committee, and nominee of
the Republican State Convention, to Gov
ernor Roosevelt, as follows:
"New York, Sept. 26, 1900. To Theodore
Roosevelt, Governor of New York, Crip
ple Creek; Colo. Wire Attorney-General
Davles to be sure not to give out to the
reporters the Van Wyck answer at this
time. It .must be held until after the
election is over. This would imperil our
chances and get us into a useless wrangle.
I have Also wired Davles.
"B. B. ODELL."
A reporter called on Governor Roosevelt
at his home in Oyster Bay today and
asked him as to the genuineness of the
telegram given above. The Governor de
clined to t. make any statement bcypna
calling attention, to thp fact that about
V) days, before the election, he had said
to -newspaper, reporters that there was
no , possible objection . to Mayor Van
""vjyck.givlpg but Jlils answer, but as far
as be. was cpneorned, the usual formali
ties .would be followed, and the answer,
together with any communication from
the Attorney-General, would be made
public at tho same time the decision was
given out. . .
Jn the letter of Attorney-General Da
vles 'to( Governor Roosevelt, dated Octo
ber 4,' communicating tlio answer of
Mayor Van Wyck, the Attorney-General
aaj-s: , ,
"The Mayor by his answer admits that
during his Incumbency of the , office he
has been the owner pf shares of stocK
fn tho .Amprlcan Ice Company, .He also
admits. tlvat during the period In which
he was the owner of stock the American
Ice Company had contracts with the cit
fpr the sale of Ice to various departments
of the oity and for the leasing of docks
belonging to tho city. In my opinion th&
owner, Of fjtock In the corporation is in
terested within, the meaning of that" word
as employed In Section 1533 of the Greater
New York charter, In a contract between
the corporation and the city."
.Further on In his letter to the Governor,
thp Attorney-General says: fc
"In order to Justify the Mayor's re
moval,, I do not believe that It Is neces
sary to estabilsh'a case against him upon
which he could be convicted of a crimo
under the provisions of section ioif, above
referred to, but I do, believe there should
be clear and satisfactory" evidence of'hl3
moral guilt.
','It Is of the utmost Importance that no
further proceedings should be taken In
this matter unless you are satisfied that
the charges can be sustained. The Mayr
of the greatest city In America should not
bo humiliated by being placed upon trial
upon charges which are groundless, or
which cannot be proved. Under all these
circumstances and In vle"w of the fact
that the charges are made upon informa
tion and belief, and considering the great
expense both to tho Mayor and the state
lhyolved In such a trial, i believe that be
fore a Commissioner fs appointed or any
further proceedings taken in the matter,
you should require the petitioners to place
you in possession of evidence which, stand
ing alone and undisputed, would Justify
the removal of the Mayor.
"In my Judgment, the Mayor's answer
should not be made public at this time.
As I have already stated, Its denials and
allegations are clear and explicit, and It
might at once be suggested ' that the
charges should be dismissed, or that a
Commissioner should be at once appointed
and the Mayor given a speedy opportunity
to exonerate himself.
"You are powerless to act in this mat
ter during your absence from this state.
Ypu cannot appoint a Commissioner until
yoxi reach the state, and I am informed
that Mr. Woodruff will decline to take
fhfe responsibility of appointing one.'
Governor-elect Odell came to this city
tonight and when asked about the tele
gram said to have been sent by hint to
GoVernor Roosevelt to suppress the an
swer of Mayor Van Wyck to the "ics
trust" charges, sard:
"That alleged telegram Is signed 'B. B.
OdelL That is not my name. I never
sign, my name In any ofhor way but
'B. B. Odell, Ji-' My father's name Is
B. B, Odell, I asked my father if he

vejt I would do It. - Even If I had sent

I have had an investigation -made in

the Democratic party can make no sur
render of principles for expediency's
sake. It can make no surrender to the
commercialism of the moment. -When It
does that It ceases to be Democratic, and
if 'It-veers to catch every favoring breeze
It" will soonr be as fir from its original
moorings as the Republican party is
from its.
( "Seven million voters review the doc
trine of Jefferson and advocate his prin
Wples. These men will no't abandon their
belief to pleqse a 'minority'' of the party.
The majority rules In a republic and in
our party the majority will continue, to
rule.1
"No one can, say upon what issues the
next battle wlli be fought. The princi
ples of our partyr are immutable; issues
,3X6 created by4 conditions, The Republi
can party has .been invested with a sol
emn trust. It will be held to the strictest
aceountabjilty, It has the President and
both, branches of Congress, Jt will make
the laws and execute them. Upon its
, wisdom and upon .the economic condi
tions that, develop will the Issues of the
jnext battle depend. ,,
"The next Democratic convention will
consider all pending issues and subjects
and frame a platform. It will be a Dem
ocratic, a Jeffexsonlan one, -and all true
Democrats will stand upon it. Those who
do not wish to do so can stand on the
Republican platform. Undoubtedly the
men who call themselves Democrats, but
who have, been Republicans during the
last two campaigns will not be permitted
to define the issue and 3hape policies for
the Democratic party. I believe the
present organization will control. It ex
ists; In every hamlet, town and county In
the Nation. It Is honest; It will go right
ahead Just as it has done during tho last
four years.
"Mr. Bryan Is undoubtedly at the pres
ent the -natural leader of the people. He
has an Immense following, to whom his
sincerity, honesty and patriotism are an
Inspiration."
National Committeeman Norman E.
Mack is quoted as saying at Buffalo 'that:
"We will go on fighting orf much the
same lines as we fought this year, though
of couree there must of necessity be
some changes in the party's policy. "Wfi
cannot stick to issues that are dead, and
we must take advantage of the lessons
we have learned fn the late campaign.
The silver Issue Is not dead exactly. It
Is dead only In so far as the ratio of 16 to 1
Is concerned. The Democratic party al
ways ha3 and will always stand for bi
motalism. "Of the Issues, that remain to the Dem
ocratic party, imperialism and the trusts
.standi out pre-eminently. Imperialism, will
..not die as an, issue with the defeat of Mr.
.Bxjjan. Mr. Bryan will -continue to be
tue jeaaer or. jne democratic, party, xnat

George Fred Williams is quoted as say
ing at Bojston: v r
'"Ills' my purpose to "watch the polit
ical developments carefully, particularly
with the view of uniting the reform
forces for the future. When the great
sweep of popular Indignation pomes,
these forces should be united, not for a
destructive, but for a conservative pol-
Mcy, and It Is to such a policy that I look
forward with hope.
"If our institutions can survive four
years more of President McKlnley, we
may build up a positive programme
which will entirely change the capital
istic methods In Industry and politics.
This is my hope and expectation."

Wheeler Says Wars Are Popnlar.
MONTGOMERY. Ala., Nov. 9.-General
Joseph Wheeler has given out the to.
lowing on the result of the election:
"I did not go to Deoatur to hear the re
turns Tuesday night. I do not like to go
to funerals, and I felt It and -knew that
Mr. McKlnley would be overwhelmingly
re-elected. There are two things tha
American people reverence Orat, their
gold, and second, their flag. A word
against either will bring down their con
demnation. There never was a Presi
dent defeated for election who had con
ducted a successful war. Wars are popu
lar In this country and are growing more
popular with the, masses, and any patty
that opposes a successful war "will meet
with defeat."
picveland Hopes It Is So.
NEW YORK, Nov. 9. In response to a
query from a correspondent of the WorM,
ex-Pre8lden.t Cleveland, at Prlnc.ton,
wrote and signed the following:
"I have heard nothing about a move
ment on foot for the regeneration of the
Democratic party, but I hope steps will
be taken in that direction. I am not
willing to make any statement now."
HANNA ON THE ELECTION.
Republicans Will Fight for the Vote
in Kentucky
NEW YORK. Nov. 9. Senator Hanna.
chairman of the Republican National
Committee, arrived here today from
Cleveland. In speaking of the election,
be said:
"The people of this country were over
whelmingly in favor of sound money,
law and order, and a continuation of that
policy that stands for prosperity. Pa
triotism and loyalty to the flag were
strong factors in this campaign, and that,
together with the aid of those who are
generally termed sound money or Gold
Democrats, but whoni I called American
citizens, all icomblned to bring about this
result.
"Nebraska -was tho greatest victory of

CHANDLER AND BIMETALISM.
He Makes Public a Letter Written by
McKlnley Four Years Abo.'
CONCORD. "N. H.. Nov. 9.-Senator
Chandler Issued a written defense against
the criticisms of Railroad Commissioner
Putney, who opposed his re-election as
United States' Senator, one of Putney's
grounds of opposition being Senator
Chandler's efforts for blmetallsm. De
fending himself on this point, the Sena
tor gives doples of two letters never
before made public One la the letter of
December 17. 1896, from the Senate cau
cus signed by Senators Hoar, Chandler,
Gear and Carter and taken by Senator
Wollcott, chairman of the committee, to
McKlnley, at Canton. McKInley's letter
In-reply Is dated December 2S, and says:
"I am anxious to bring about an in
ternational agreement and carry out. If
possible, the pledge of our piatform in
that behalf."
The Profclbltlbn Vote.
CHICAGO, Nov.' 9. Besides McKlnley
and Bryan, there were five other men In
tha flpld with aspirations to the office of
President of the United States.
In Chicago alone, Eugene VJ Debs, as
head of the Social Democratic ticket, leads
the other minor candidates by a total oi
5022; John G. 'Woolley, the Prohibition
candidate, followed second with a vote
of 3333, while tho Socialist Labor .party,
with Joseph F. Maloney, received 295;
Wharton Barker, of the Peoples party, 189,
and Setji H. Ellis; of the Union Reform
fori Direct Legislation party, found 90
scattering votes.
At the National Prohibition headquar
ters it was estimated last night that the
total vote In the Nation would exceed
400,000. This estimate was based on the
receipt of about 400 telegrams received
from 28 states. This is more than three
times the vote cast for Levering in 1896.
John G. Woolley anticipates a vote ap
proximating 500,000, basing his claim upon
the country precincts which are yet to
report. ..Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, New
York and Pennsylvania are thougfit to
have polled a vote fully four times as
large as In 1S96. Illinois Is estimated at
nearly three times tho vote of 1896, or
27,000.
ROOT GOES TO CUBA.
But the. Object of His Trip Is Not
Known.
NEW YORK. Nov. 9-ecr.etary Root
Is going to Cuba for his health, says a
special to the Tribune from Washington.
More than this,he has not confided to bis
closest official associates. In a general
way, hpwever, they know that he will
take the Ward Line steamer from New
Yprk, on Saturday, "and, .handing at Ha
yana, will cross Guba. to Batabano, where,
accompanied by his son. he will go Aboard
a steam yacht for a fishing cruise, prob.
ably In the, vicinity of the Isle of Pines,
which" nits enjdyed some repute for health
fulness. The yacht lfe presumably one of
the naval auxiliaries purchased laat year
for the Cuban custom's service, but not
found useful for that purpose.
Altogether, any political object that the
Secretary of War could have in visiting
Cuba at tlio present time, when the Con
stitutional Coaventloh of the Islanders "has
Just assembled, is too- obscure for the
War Department officials to solve, and
they are also at a loss to understand
why a man In Secretary Root's state of
health Bhould risk the Cuban cllmato
at this time of the year, when malarial
influences are at their height In
his jun-down condition it la thought
that very Important matters must be
at the bottom of his choosing to expose
himself to the danger of tho yellow fever

It Is therefore impossible to enre it by

It is positively dangerous to neglect it,

WHAT CAUSES DEAFNESS.
The Principal Cause Is Curable, hat
Generally Overlooked.
Many things may cause deafness, and
very often Jt Is difficult to trace a cause.
Some people inherit deafnsss. Acute dis
eases like scarlet fever sometimes cause
deafness. But by far the most common
cause of loss of hearing is catarrh of
head and throat.
a prominent specialist on t ear trqublea
gives as his opinion that nine 'out of ten
cases of deafness are traced to throat
trouble; this Is probably overstated, but
It is certainly true that more than half
of all cases "of poor hearing were caused
by oatarrh.
The catarrhal secretion in the nose and
throat finds it way into the Eustachian
tube and by clogging it up very soon
affects the hearing, and the hardening ol
the secretion makes the less of hearing
permanent, unless, the catarrh which
caused the trouble Is cured.
Those who are hard of hearing may
think this a little far-fetched, but any
one at all observant must have noticed
how a hard cold In the head will affect
the hearing, and that catarrh it long
neglected will certainly Impair the sense
of hearing and ultimately cause deafness.
If the nose and throat are kept clear
and free from the unhealthy secretions ot
catarrh, the hearing will at .pnee greatly
Improve, and any ope suffering from deaf
ness and catarrh can satisfy themselves
on this point by using a fifty-cent box of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, a new catarrh,
cure, which in thajJast yoar has won tho
approval of thousands ot catarrh sufferers
as,well as physicians, because it is la
convenient form to use. contains no co
caine or opiate and is as safe and pleas
ant for children as for their elders.
Stuart's Catarrh-Tablets 4s a. wholesome
combination of blood root, Guaiacol, Eu
calyptol and similar antiseptics, and they
cure catarrhs and catarrhal deafness by
action upon the blood and mucous mem
brane of the nose and throat.
As one physician aptly expresses iti
"You do not have to draw upon the Im
agination to discover whether you- are
getting benefit from Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets: Improvement, and .relief are ap
parent from the first tablet taken-
All druggists sell and recommend them.
They cost but fifty cents for full-slzea
package, and any catarrh sufferer who
has wasted time and money on sprays,
salves and powders will appreciate to
the full the merit of Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets.
