ever, caused concern in ollicial circle?,
as well as to the general public. The

as she successfully did on a former occa

thought that the Canadian govern

be presented to the imperial govern

London at the request of the colonial
and war offices to discuss the decision of
the Canadian government to increase
the militia force from 40,000 to 100,000
men. Presumably the I'ritish authori
ties arc anxious that Canada's military
plans should fit in with ;omo general
scheme of empire defense, but, what
ever their views may be upon that ques
tion, it is certain they will be asked, if
not by Sir Frederick ISorden, then by
the usual official channels, to sanction

REPUBLICANISM IN TEXAS, i ncsuiNA 1 u WILL CONFIRfl WOOD MEXICO FIXES MINPBS Wahpc " "
After u lengthy conference in Galves
ton tho Republican leaders of Texas
have agreed upon a plan for harmony
and outlined tho campaign for the next
year. Tho harmony agreement is that
ex-Congressman It. 11. Hawley is to bo
re-elected national committeeman and
Cecil Lyons is to be re-elected chairman
of the state executive committee.
Tho Republicans are setting every lino
to land at least half of tho Texas con
gressmen next election, and believe
they have strong encouragement. The
Terrell election law, enacted at the last
session of the legislature, knocks out the
independent ticket, and all tickets, in
fact, whose parties do not hold regular
primaries ana at tlm last election regis
tered a certain vote. Tho Iudepondents,
Prohibitionists, etc., have heretofore,
combined, proven a factor In Texas loli-

congressman in one of the south Texas
districts, in which Houston, tho metrop

in her history went Republican.

the farm on close, practical
principles and makes a profit. Second,
the man whose farm is bigger than he
is. No matter how many or how few
acres he has, he doesn't run the farm.
The farm runs him. E. P. Snyder gives
an account, in the Ohio Farmer, of a
dairyman living near Toledo, who keeps
35 Jersey cows on 100 acres of land and
has made thum earn the past year $4,
400 grc", from which he has a profit of
f 2,200. He makes butter and sells it in
Toledo at 5 cents in summer and 30
cents in winter. His cows, counting
butter, fkim milk aud everything,
earned him over 1125 apiece. This is

for tho following:
"Devotional exercises at Humphrey
Memorial church last evening were en
livened by features not down on the
program. The customary hervices were
progrf!ing without unusual incident
nhen suddenly them ewoorl down up
on the devout congregation three blust
ering zealots with bombastic hellelujahs
aud rambling ami almost incoherent
testimonies of the iimny mercies and
We!ings bestowed upon them. Instead
of looking the parts of brands plucked
from the burning they could have sus
tained with honors the roles of assassins.
Their exhortations we're filled with
such expressions as "worshiping God
up in the air" and "being up in the air
with the chosen." IJv the time they had
fhmhed the congregation was mostlv,
'up in the air," also, that is, they were
out of sight.
A little adroit questioning dcveloed
the fact that the four walls of thechurch
contained no less notorious personages
than the "High Hollers," beg pardon,
Holy Hollers" from the effete precincts
of Corvallis. If the three visitors are
fair types of the "Holy Rollers" fanat
icts, then Corvallis would be an excel
lent place for playwrights to get mater
ial for melo-lrama. There would be
thrilling situations enough every hour
to furnish a nucleus for Theodore Krem-

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
local applications aa they can no
reach the deceased iwrtion of the ear.
fhere is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is bv constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of tho Eus
tachian Tule. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is entire
ly closed, deafnesa ia the result, and un
less the inflamation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of tho mucous services.
We will give Ono Hundred Dollora for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh

Tho nomination of Gen. Wood will bo
sent to rlio benato again this week by
the President. A representative of tho
administratis said on Friday, assur
ances had been given that the man
would be confirmed inside of ten days.
Tlio conference between Senator Hanna
did not result aa was hoped by some of
tho friends of Gen. Wood, in the with
drawal of tho senator's opposition. Tho
two talked over the matter Thursday
spiritedly and candidly. Hanna said
he was firmly confinced that tho general
was not fitted for tho position to which
it was suggested ho bo raised. Ho said,
too, that Wood had purposely and
knowingly injured and disgraced his
friend, Rathbono, and that tho senator
could not forglvo him. Hanna Is re
ported to have told the Prehident that
he was determined to make a dignifiod
resistance until the last to the nomina
tion, but that he did not feel a personal
resentment toward those who were
The President jtointed out to Senator
Hanna that President McKinley, hig
dearest friend, had promoted Gen. Wood
repeatedly, and it was through President
McKinley that Wood was raied to the
rank of brigadier general, thus putting
him in line for the present promotion.
The conference had no other result than
to thow that each man was standing by
his friend, and that while each had the
greatest admiration for the other and
great resjct for the opinion of the
other in most things, each would per
sist in the course so far followed so far
as Gen. Wood is concerned.
It is regarded as settled that the nomi
nation will have a favorable report from
tho committee on military affairs. The
testimony to be offered lefore that com
mittee has very largely been given. Un
less some unheard of evidence should
come up to influence senators, there will !
not ue at the most more than two or
three votes against confirmation in The
Senator Scott is generally believed to
le fetteled in his conviction to v Jt
airaiust the nomination. Senators Haw
ley, Proctor, Foraker and Alter are
known to lie as firmly in favor of con
firmation. Quarles is believed to I.
favorable, and Warren is regardl
likely to vote for confirmation. Of the
Demc;raU, Cockrell, Pettus and Black
burn favor confirmation, while Bate is
rsgarded as doubtful.
The opinion that prevails in the com
mittee is so pronounced for Wood that
even the opposition senators tola-
have no expectation of a change of Een
timent or of an adverse report.
If Senator Hanna should api-eal to his
friends as a persona! matter to stand by
him, the consequences are regarded as
likely to lead to dee'dedly strained rela
tions letween the President and the
Ohio senator. No such step is expected.

Tho Mexican government is using its
efforts to have a uniform scale of wages
auopted by tho mining companies and
manufactures of that country for the
uiujnoyeu native laoorera. The govern
ment baa advised tho larger mining com
panies which oro operating in western
Mexico that they must not pay higher
wages to their miners than are paid in
other parts of tho country. It ia stated
that tho fact that higher wagea are
paid in some of tho mining camps of the
Htato of Sonora, articularly at Cananea,
where tho great consolidated copper
company is operating, than ia paid in
mining camps in other parts of the coun
try, has led to industrial dissatisfaction
and that tho government ia seeking to
quiet tho trouble by providing that a
uniform scale of wagea shall bo paid
throughout the country. Manv Ameri
can miners employed in Mexico who re
ceived higher wagea than tho Mexi
cans have been discharged during the
past few weeks.
