With Promises of Support to Admin

by United States Becomes
HAVANA. Jan. 1. With the as
surance made tonight to President
Gomex by leaders of tha veterans' move
ment that agitations would cease and
tha veterans would support the admin
istration loyally in bringing all Cubans
together and in removing tha fainteat
excuse for American Intervention, thera
appears to be no doubt that the crista
In Cuban affairs has been passed suc
cessfully. Tha conference of the President with
prominent men of all factions last
night proved merely an exchange of
views, no definite policy being formu
lated. While the necessity of union and co
operation was recognised on all sides
there was one discordant note In tha
attitude of the leaders ot the veterans,
who seemed reluctant to surrender the
fruits of their heretofore triumphant
campaign, and were disposed to Insist
upon the constitutional rights of the
ouicers of the army and rural guard
to take part In the movement.
Opposition la Gome.
That this opposition has completely
surrendered lta position Is indicated by
an official memorandum Issued tonight
from tha palace after a long confer
ence between the President and Gen
eral Nunas and Colonel Coronado, ed
itor of Discussion, representing the
"Both veterans," the memorandum
says, "declared It would be their fore
most effort to restore amity and con
fidence throughout the republic and re
move tha slightest pretext that might
endanger the Independence of tha
country. They wera fully resolved to
put an and to tha present veterana'
"The veteran clubs ara to continue
In accordance with their laws aa be
nevolent and patriotic Institutions, In
no way departing from the purposes
defined In their constitutions. It also
was pledged that this agreement
promptly would be submitted to tne
general council of veterana for legal
President la Gratified.
"The President Is greatly gratified
at these declarations which he expect
ed in view of the ardent love from tha
country which has aver Inspired the I
liberators of Cubs.
While a definite policy has not been
decided upon, and doubtless there will
ba no further confarenoea, the adhesion
of the veterana to the administration
apparently removes ail possibility of
disastrous discord. Probably tba first
move would be the presentation In Con
gress tomorrow of a bill rescinding the
annulment of the civil service law and
afflrml-g the equal right of all Cubans
to bold office. ' -
All the conferences so far hare been
characterised by expressions of friend-
ip and gratitude to tha United States.
Secretary Knox' note Is regarded aa a
warning issued In a friendly spirit and
couched In terms which prohibited Its
Interpretation as a threat.
Doubtless President Gomex will
notify the American Minister, Mr.
Beaupre. that all cause for anxiety in
Washington regarding the ability of
the Cuban government to maintain or
der has been removed.
With the expiration of tha veteran
movement, the hopea of General Nunea

In my case stomach trouble seemed to follow a run-down condition. What
food I ate did not seem to digest, but felt like a lump in my stomach. My
stomach would bloat with gas and was sour all of the time. I was so sore
about the body that I could not bear to have my clothes touch me. Later I
began to be troubled with rheumatism, which settled in my limbs. They were
swollen and at times my arms were so stiff that I could not raise them. There
was a dull, aching pain through the small o my back and for weeks I could
not bend over. Nothing seemed to help me, although I tried many remedies,
