The seneral debate on tho Postofflee
appropriation bill was enlivened yes
terday by an Interesting discussion ot
the tariff question. It was participated ,
in by Sibley (Rep.. Pa.). Williams
(Dem.. Miss.) and Griggs (Dem.. Ga.).
The consideration of the postoEee
bill In committee of the whole was com
pleted, but It was. not passed. The an
nual attempt to strike out appropria
tions for special malj facilities between
Washington and New Orleans, and
Kansas City and Newton, Kan., was
led by Talbert (Dem.-. 8. O, who fol
lowed up bis motion after It was de

office appropriation bill, an arrangement
having been made to close general debate
at 3 o'clock. Perkins (N. Y.) submitted
some remarks In favor of placing beef and
bides on tho free list.
Sibley (Pa.), who followed, attracted
much attention by his remarks in reply to
a speech by Williams (Miss.) last week
on tho subject of tariff. In concluding.
he warned1 the House that the people
would hold the Republicans responsible
after the hysteria relative to tariff reform
had been passed. Most of his Republican
colleagues applauded thls statement.
Griggs of Pennsylvania, who is chair
man of the Democratic Congressional
Committee, defended at some length the
figures of the Democratic campaign book
relative to the tariff and the trusts.
Williams of Mississippi replied to Sib
ley. He raised a general laugh at Sibley's
expense when he attributed the latter's
skill as a debater to his practice In the
Populist, Democratic and Republican par
ties, and his alternate support or opposi
tion to every great political question.
Loud (Rep. Cal.), chairman of the Post-
offlco committee, in closing the general de-
hata Mintairiuritha nnnltlnn of tha o 1 T I
bate, reviewed the condition of the postal
service and Its phenomenal growth. He
expressed tho opinion that the Postofflee
appropriation bill for the next year should
carry no less than the pending measure.

tho appropriation of 112,000 for special
mall facilities between Washington, At

WASHINGTON. Feb. 4. According to
Naval officials, there is no political signif
icance in the dispatch ot the four vessels
of Admiral Casey s fleet to Amalpa Island.
The State Department suggested that one
vessel be sent to the'lsland to afford pro
tection to American Interests, which might
be Imperiled as a result of the civil trou
bles which are threatened in Honduras,
but the Navy Department thought it
would be a good plan to dispatch Hhe en

portunity for sea drilling and actual prac

DOUBTS WILKES BOOK.
M. Bella Conclude Tnt Journal
TWANA. Mason County. Wash., Jan.
31. (To tho Editor.) When I wrote my
article on the Whitman Question, which
was published In The Oregonian of Janu
ary 18, I was not aware that I was likely
to stir up quite so much discussion in re
card to the Wilkes Journal, but -the arti
cle of Professor Joseph Bchafer In The
Oregonian of January 20, and a private
letter which I have received, which took
me to task for my position, has led me
to make further investigations on the sub
ject, which have brought out the follow
ing facts and conclusions:
Governor P. H. Burnett either wrote the
Journal published In Wilkes' book or he
did not. He did write his "Recollections
of nn Old Pioneer." In the latter ho says:
"I kept a concise Journal of the trip as
far an Walla Walla, and have it now bo-
fore mc" He does not, however, give the
Journal as kept, but gives a condensed
statement of it. and uses It to verify his.
statements. The Wilkes book gives a
Journal as it was said to have been kept.
Henco it Is not possible to compare tho
two line by line, but there ore otner ways
of comparison, as given below:

Relief Prom All Catarrhal and Chronic
Deafness, Catarrh and All Catarrhal Maladies, Asthma and
Bronchitis, Incipient Consumption, Diseases of the
Nervous System, the Stomach, Liver and Bowels, I
Rheumatism, Kidney Diseases, and All Affections of j
Skin and Blood, Cured by the Copeiand Treatment. ;
To one not scientifically familiar with
the causes of disease and disease
symptom?, it may em that the won
derful Copeiand treatment covers too
many of them; that too much is
claimed for It; that It resembles in
this respect the patent "cure-alls" to
bo purchased by the gallon at drug
stores. The people have had a surfeit
of theae marvelous balms, lotions 1 and
concoctions that are heralded as sov
ereign remedies for all the Ills flesh 'Is
heir to. Thoy want no more "cure
alto." Nor do they want to entrust
their health to the reckless dosing of
quack doctors. The thousands of pub
lished statements of reputable and
well-known persons old and young,
men nnd women who have been cured
ot all the troubles enumerated above
by the skill of the Copeiand physicians,
should be as convincing as a decree of
court, even to one unfamiliar with the
nature of thoee diseases, while those
who know that the root ot these
troubles is catarrh, and that the secret
of the wonderful accomplishments of
the Copeiand physicians Is their -special
skill In the treatment and cure of that
dread "enemy of the human race, are
In no danger, even without this multi
tude of witnesses, of confounding the
Copeiand treatment with anything that
has even a suspicion of quackery about
It. The facts are that the Copeiand
treatment curea, that thousands today
enjoy restored health and hearing
through the skill of the Copeiand
physicians, and that this treatment la
brought wlthtn easy, reach of the
masses by the merely nominal fee of
X5 a month, all medicines included.
The Copeiand treatment has
been Indorsed by thousands of
prominent citizens of the North
west. Including the following

HE FEARED CON
BY HOME TREATMENT
Mr. M. M. Jackson, Saginaw, Or.,
Was a sufferer from a eevere type of
bronchial trouble, which seemed to bo
rapidly developing Into consumption.
Being unable to visit the office he
began a course of Home Treatment,
the result of which is set forth in the
following letter received recently:
Dear Doctors I would have writ

Mr. M. 31. Jackson, Saginaw, Or,
from home. I have been with
out medicine for some time but feel
fine. Mj appetite Is good and my
stomach to all right. In fact I am
a new man to what I was this time
last Winter. I go out In all kinds of
weather, and feel ae stout and weigh
as much as I ever did. When I sent
for your symptom blank I was nothing
but skin and bone. I had no relteh
for food and everything I ate dis
tressed mo terribly. I coughed Inces
santly. I had night sweate and a
soreness through the chest and lungs.
I waa growing weaker every day and
evorybody thought I had consumption.
I myself did not think I would be alive
today, but I am, and I lay It all to
your excellent treatment of my case. I
have done more work In the past two
months than in a year- before, and
think I am good for pretty good work
"I feel very grateful for what you
have done for me and my family In
restoring my health, and .always take
great pleasure In recommending your
treatment. Respectfully yours,
"M. M. Jackson, Saginaw, Or."
